Maurya Empire Medicinal Oils with explaination

I think someone got a little confused in the direction of resources.
I did not have a medicinal oil parent, so that is solved.
Here are three family tree style charts to help you understand what is what.
Sorry for the misunderstanding.


Here are the breakdowns of the types of resources. All Silks are Cloths, but not all Cloths are Silks... Etc...

Joan of Arc Testers

Ok kids,

Let me know what you think of these. How can they improve?

Things to note:

1) Capitol cards (unless otherwise specified) are only allowed to be in play one at a time in your playing area.

2) These are rare cards, so you'll only be allowed one of each per playing deck.

3) The beginning cost is insane, but you really can't lose once you get this system up and going.

4) Joan the Saint has a trump icon on it, so it can't be targeted by anything.

5) These are not "Generals" or "Units".

6) "Proclaimation" is a new "Capitol Power" that I think is better than action or effect or ability. I will have to change the other capitol cards now, but that's ok.

7) Please send feedback to: EmpiresAndGenerals@Gmail.com

Thanks!

- pauly

James Puckle

James Puckle was the inventor of the Machine Gun. Though he was not alive for the formation of the Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, his invention of the world's first Machine Gun in 1718 was so revolutionary that it may have been the finest creation of the Age of Discovery.

James Puckle has no leadership Icon and is treated as a typical unit without leadership, like a soldier.

The "epoch" of the Puckle Gun may be used in games of Age of Discovery or later (this is what the + means), unless players agree that all ages are allowed in the game play.

history movie review: the great wall

history movie review: the great wall

historical accuracy: 75%
minus antagonist army 90%

'the great wall' movie (2017) with damon and dafoe is a pretty good tale. i would give it an A+ for a "good tale". set your expectations on "hey, i'm gonna watch a pretty good tale" and you won't be disappointed. set your expectations on "i wonder what rotten tomatoes says" and you're going to be a poopy time.

historical drawbacks -

the chinese not knowing about lodestones
hot air balloon travel
bungee spear fighting
