Re: Are we ready?
- I'm here and ready to go. I assume they will start next week. Been
telling others in my current games about the new format. Seems a bit
like DL Suz/Hench relationship.
My thought about the tutorial is that the miniatures are a bit large,
though look very nice. If they could be "shrunk" without losing that
great detail, that would be nice. Banners a bit difficult to see.
Don't need to enlarge them, but rather change some coloration so that
they stand out against the background/units of each province. Right
now they look like an infantry shield. ;)
Also, Tim mentioned to me that the Quadreme that can be built is
described as have three sets of oars. Can that be right? I thought
Quad meant 4.
Adam [Wendel] - not Adam Bell ;)

Quad does mean 4, but refers to the number of men at the oars, not
the the number of oars. Adding a 4th level to the ship would
require a longer and weaker oar, and the strain of the pull or
stroke would be too much on the men.(probably the oar too) Also the
ship would become much heavier and more unstable having a tall and
very narrow hull.
Quadremes have one extra body added to one the existing 3 levels of
oars. So they have roughly 1/3 more rowers than a trireme, and a
Quinquireme has roughly 2/3 more. Having added two extra men.
Probably to the top two levels.
