Google says it's Top Gun.

It's incredible you didn't know that, BTBG, since both your name and the character list of that film contain the word "Goose".

I've noticed that strangely, Machaka has lately been a real problem in SP games. I think it's the reduction in cost on spiders. The guide's advice on massing lots of these guys is still helpful. For the early game, take some production scales and pump out spiders and hoplites.

The Black Hunters seem to want a bless badly. The rider isn't too important, but the spider is pretty handy. Expensive, though.

Since you have plenty of F magic, Zmeys are an obvious target. Flaming arrows too if you're confronting chaff. For SCs, the death direction seems appropriate. But your E mages should be able to create cyclopses too.

Just random thoughts -- I'm not very good at this

The Black Hunters are usually considered not worth much of a bless. Once the rider has died, the Spider's MR is too low to invest much in.

Hmmm, good thought. In that case, probably best to go heavy on production, crank out hoplites, and turtle until you have some useful research.

I'm going entirely from memory.

I remember liking the Colossal Fetish. I remember that you have to be careful with him - because he dies on a rout unless you give him flying - stymphalian wings or Boots of flying or some such.

medallions of vengeance?

The map move of the archers was pretty good...

I seem to remember someone did a lot of tests with the spider riders..

Why would flying save him? He is mindless- doesn't that mean he always dies on a route?
