    Indeed. The story is mostly being played out in the game thread so I'm not really bothering here. And, s you said, Ferdinand is dead.

    This tale seems to have bitten the dust ever since Ferdinand did the same

    They have daggers in their boot heels so beware the table dance.

    I wonder what General Marcos is planning to tell his people regarding the recent coup in which he assumed power

    One also wonders when, if ever, the poor Spanish people will be delivered a leader worthy of their loyalty.....it would be such a shame to see those beautiful flamenco dancers tilling the fields instead of in the bars where they belong, entertaining the Russian troops who will soon be there

    BULLETIN

    First of all, DO NOT PANIC! Your army and navy commanders have temporarily taken over the work of the government with the church helping with rationing and medical services. Please note that this is a TEMPORARY government and as soon as peace is made in Europe we will choose a civilian government. You have our word.
    In the meantime, your loyal armed forces commanders are busy organising our defences and opening diplomatic channels with other nations. We are pleased to announce that we are no longer at war with Austria! Soon we hope to have peace with the Ottomans and perhaps after that the Russians. Ambassadors are being sent even as we speak.
    We ask that everyone remain calm during this time and we promise to make Spain a peaceful and prosperous country as soon as we can.

    A million times better. Graphics, gameplay, everything. I think I'll be playing it for a long time.

    Wow, sounds impressive. I bought Medieval Total War ages ago, but got hooked on Civ3 before I got past the tutorials so never played it seriously. Is Rome much better than that? (I presume it's similar and an update by the same people?)

    It's really a great game. Dare I say better than Civ (if you don't count PBEM)? The strategy part of the game is very detailed with great diplomacy, family members being born and dying, leaders gaining virtues and vices, and so on. The tactical battles are also great and you can really zoom in on the fighting.
    I've been limiting myself to just half an hour or so of playing time on the weekdays (and sometimes not at all) but a couple hours a day at the weekend. For the same reasons I quit most of my Civ games. I highly recommend the game.

    Have you bought Rome Total War? What's the verdict?

    Well, bait's always nice......but just make sure your hook and line is strong enough to catch the whale that you're attracting without getting eaten yourself!
