Re: Leaders and their traits

And of course due to the randomisation of leaders, a great leader rising from among the random leaders is possible as well, for any countries.

Re: Leaders and their traits

Presently we do not have traits for military leaders (rulers have them, but leaders do not). They have an attack and a defense rating. Traits were at least important for flavor. Do leaders have historical name? not random (Not so a joke, it's a sudden worry wondering) See above on how historical le...

Re: strategic/operational/tactical level

Sorry for the late reply!

It is definitely an interesting idea. Possibly a bit challenging to make it easy to oversee and manage for the player, but it would be an interesting solution for games set in later historical eras.

Presently we do not have traits for military leaders (rulers have them, but leaders do not). They have an attack and a defense rating. These give the units bonus dice during combat and can be decisive when there's a big gap between the opposing leaders.

Re: Leaders and their traits

Whatever I write is subject to change until release of course, but the historical leaders we have are basically semi-random: during the years of their active period, they have a chance to appear in the game. Rest of the leaders are randomised of course. They do not have the long list of traits the l...

Hi, I have just tested it with our current version and Magnifier seems to work with it, without any issues I could spot.

Re: strategic/operational/tactical level

Empires does have more strategic and (slightly more) tactical focus than older Ageod games, and consequently there are slightly less options to micro-manage operational detail. However, often this simply switches the decision-points elsewhere. For example, we don't deal with the construction of supp...

Re: Battle system: FOG2 or AGEod?

Will you need to own FOG2 in order to enjoy that battle feature, or will it be included as a part of Empires? Probably a stupid question, but I wasn't sure. I was imagining FOG:Empires as an adjunct to an established game. To use the FOG2 battles you need to own FOG2. As I said above, Empires is a ...

Can you ignore the tactical layer completely to just enjoy PBEM normally? I am not sure what exactly you mean by "tactical layer" Empire's or FOG2 so I'll answer both, kind of. :) Empires is entirely playable without FOG2. The very basis of the whole design is that fact - FOG2 integration...
