he is a clever one is he not Wink

Quote:
Do u know any Pontic units yet?

Oh, ok, maybe they'll be a campaign for Persia (or Parthia is already?)
well they are basically a mix of hellens and persians. lets see what they'll get in the end.

Quote:
What about Illyrians? Included in Thrace?
no a minor but as campaining as Macedon "allies" you with Tracians Epirotes get similar boni with Illyrians...

Quote:
Hope the Jews will be minor.
possible

Epirotes will be part of the Hellen civ and the only non native way for hellens to get elephants


Yes, but the elephants that Phyrrus used were given to him by either the Ptolemies or the Seleucids (I cant remember which), so wouldn't it make more sense to give them the elephants??

EDIT: It was Ptolemy II.

I agree.

On a related note: what kinds of random maps where you guys planning on having?

German Forest, Balkans, Syrian Deset, Nile Delta, Campania, Laconia, Iberia, Mesopotamia. I thought them after the natives.

By allies u mean the allies cards?

Doing a trick and editing a Macedonia (hellen) unit into a "Persian" (seleucid) one would be good, eh? U get +time

correct, but that would be the answer if the question would be:

Shall we give Ptolemaic Egyptians Elephants or Epirotes.

this is not the question that we had to deal with but rather: would it be realistic to give Epirotes the option to acquire Elephants(ye can't get much more obvious than that) and the answer to this question is: Yes.

I would like to remind you that as concepts are right now Ptolemaians are just Hellens that captured a Egyptian settlement and Seleucids are hellens that captured a persian settlement.

sort of a bit like every civ in aoe3 had a native civ as shipable mercs.

So Epirus will be part of the Hellenes but the Ptolemies and Seleucids will not? I wasn't criticising the idea of giving elephants to Epirus, but I thought that if the Ptolemies and Seleucids were part of the Hellene civilization then it would make more sense to give them the elephant card...

Give a Macedonian unit to the Persians to add the Seleucid flavour.
