Well, so if daltons are wst bandits, maybe they are mercenaries for the US

You can give them mercenary ships.

It's sure that they are bandits. So they have to be units you can build another way. Maybe they are a limited unit that can be builded by the explorer. Or they are just regular units..

That's true but we're designing Poland more into the direction of the Polish-Lithuanian Union than the Duchy of Warsaw.

Would be just a matter of time til you get the exact solution, so, meant was the Church Tech Colt Company, which ships 25 pistoleros; pistoleros, renegados, and gives comancheros +30% ranged attack.
It reflects the Wild West Image of America. Cool

@alvaro_qc - don't forget that Poland had a colony in africa and america Wink


New riddles added! Don't forget No1 and No6 (civ is still missing!) and also don't forget: you're just answering not answerquestioning Topmodel

It's finnish, and btw scandinavian is not a language.

Because the sentence is so awfully flawed it’s really hard to translate, but I’ll give it a shot:

Kosketusvaikutelma ~ the hardest part, though is not exactly a finnish word could be translated to “Impression after touch” or “Feeling of a touch”
näin ~ multiple translations depending on context which right now is quite hazy… could mean something like “thus” or “so” but also “I saw”
jäykkä ~ stiff
palan ~ most likely means “fragment” could also mean “I burn”
tuska ~ pain

----

Impression after touch so stiff fragment pain Surprised

Maybe the smiley face with club is a clue also, hmmm? Finnish peasants did fight a "Cudgel War" against the swedish oppressors in the 1500 but i doubt this has anything to do with it. Surely it's a finnish unit for swedes but of what kind... I'm terrible at these.

In conclusion: No idea Mr. Green
