Re: False Allies

I'm currently playing ten PBEM games of FOGE, some of which I have been really enjoying. However, in three of these games, I have been opportunistically attacked by allies, and this has spoiled my fun. For no apparent reason, these alliances were broken and I was attacked (when I was committed else...

Re: Bribing

Good to hear there may be more AGEOD elements. On bribing, there may be too much or too little gold in some reaches of the known world. game and could get out of hand.

Re: Inquiry for a Job as Translator

Re: Intent & Best Practices for Naval Transport/Escort/Supply

Yes correct. Transported land units pay with their own effectiveness the lack of supply, and don't provide supply to landed troops. You need real warships for that.[/] Rome took the region of Illyricum ussing a fleet of built and captured warships. The fleet remained offshore to assure continued su...

Re: Field of Glory: Empires has been updated to version 1.0.3

The most useful is categorized unit count Heavy/Medium/Light with an estimated strength based on quality of intelligence. However, strength and total unit count alone could be appropriate when full intel is lacking.

Re: Unwanted Regions

You are right about the approach, but some ideas are not worth the resulting time, trouble in game development, and effects on the players and their expectations. Paradox can afford bloat and disconnects but a small development house needs to keep focus on a clean and playable result. Having an arra...

Intent & Best Practices for Naval Transport/Escort/Supply

We could use a short guide to joint operations and naval and amphibious operations. These include escort and raiding as represented in the game and what orders and automatic behaviors behaviors the ships follow.

Re: Leaders

Selection of field commanders up into the 20th century has been based primarily on status and with competence a bonus (but not so much as to threatenthe state). My Rome has produced a few with total score of 3 at best.

How are we intended to use the turn log and what does each log button do?

For me, reading reports of distant lands is interesting but focusing on those with which I have some connection is an advisable practice. Not everyone studies ancient provincial geography closely and we might all benefit from visual cues as to proximity and general location. The main thing is unders...

Re: Unwanted Regions

Client States are friendly realms with good relations that are also tributaries. I think you are suggesting forced satellite or puppet relationships as the price of peace in a war. I'd wager that was considered but tabled as adding unnecessary complexity to warfare, diplomacy, legacy and decadence e...

QUESTION 1 How to invade amphibiously? The manual says " Combining Land and Naval Units Note that you can build a stack that combines both types.

Just as there are Raids, there could be punitive expeditions as larger temporary incursions that do not conquer or occupy and directed solely to military targets

Mercs - the Who, when, where, how long, how much?

I have seen the Syracusans unable to hire them. They are mentioned a half dozen times in the manual - but otherwise a secretive bunch. Can we fill in the facts? Or speculate. (Searched the forum first for mercenar but no joy.)

Re: Issue with Rebellions

Could someone put together a checklist and some narrative as a guide to slaves and related events. "A Crassus Guide to Slavery"as it exissts in game.


Another QOL item would be more tooltips and side guides such as one on message settings and alerts. and terrain attributes such as food and forage.
