What I'm wondering is, actully, not if Slitherine makes comming games, Alcane Legions and Legions 2. I have killed my little doubts about that, thanks to coldknight's post and this Great Battles of Rome's anouncement. But the balance between system and narrative is what I'm wondering. There are many...

You know, I never understood why the shield doesn't seem to appear in ancient japanese warfare- pavises, occasionally, but not traditional shields. That is because, Their main weapon is war bow, and their armor(yoroi、 鎧) is already heavy for wearer and horse. In fact 大鎧(oo yoroi, literal meaning, h...

Scouting and ambushing seems to be great. One thing I feel sad is there are many battles and subtle battle descriptions, though once you got army strong enough, it is a kind of skelton key to open the way into any battlefields. But another point I'm wondering is, is there Legion 2 and Alcane Legion?...

May I ask question?
Are there any new unit types, for exsample roman marines?

And I really hope slitherine make historic based feudal Japan's era war strategy games.

[/quote]Very interesting, tora_tora_tora. Which battle is this supposed to be depicting? Are any great Daimyo or Shoguns involved?[/quote] The story itself is not historical, it is fictional, though battle sequences and costumes seems to be authentic. So these daimyos and warriors are not real histo...

Off the topic That reminds me of Fantasy General, I bough around ten years ago. You know IME standards and there are other programs which occupy DOS's conventional memories.

I played PG several years ago, and I found it really fun to play, I like Kursk scenario.

And if I want to apply beta version tester, should I play PG once again to refresh memory and get some skills?

I guess players can make combind combat teams. So integrating several archers units into one team, and disignating bow-master as commander or putting cavalries and swordmen together, making swordsmen somekind of aconpanying infantries, and protect knights when they are most vulnerable, the time when...

Japanese use roman-letter(romaji), hiragana(ひらがな、平仮名、ヒラガナ), katakana(かたかな、片仮名、カタカナ) and chinese characters(かんじ、漢字、カンジ, kannji). well, for the first look, it seems a bit confusing, but actually not. For exsample, we don't have Latin tradition, which mean we don't have to learn Latin, except scholars ...

Tora^3 - I'm a bit puzzled by what you say about typing in unit names in japanese. Are you trying to do an LA mod in japanese? Why can't you just type in the names?
