    Default the face of pyrhuss

    I ve got a question was there a change-up between the faces of the starting epyrhotes?
    because pyrhus had in 1.1 a nice non costum face and now his son ptolemaios has it wich had the beardy-baldy before and now pyrhuss has the most ugliest helenic face of them all

    now I thought I was imune to such pitty details, now I have found the truth, I am not

    now I love squashin romans and makedons with my elephants as much as the next person but I can't seem to be able to do it not with a face like that
    now is my question ,how do I change the faces so I can enjoy bringing pyrhuss his revenge an the glory he so deserves

    You should ask Chirurgeon.
    Mostly active on the AAR board.

    He can alter faces and everything.

    Can even perform sex change if you wish it.

    I thought Pyrrhos looked a lot better than the 1.1 version (who is now Ptolemaios). Alexandros has the baldy bearded one now, doesn't he? He looks like a Hell's Angel.

    Personally, I think Pyrrhos should have my avatar, I like this one the most. (Though, I'm really a fan of the ones with Corinthian helmets).
    To settle the deal between Romans and Greeks once and for all... both Italy and Greece are in deep s*** at the moment. Do you really think who had the biggest spear in antiquity makes any difference?

    I like my insanely long-faced roman dude very much.

    And I like killing Pyrrhus in 272, every time.

    You also need to purchase a small freezer for storage of your pepsi.
    It runs on batteries. You'll need a few.
    Uhh, I guess I won't have pepsi then. Do you have change for a twenty?

    I think faces are controlled, at least in part, by the order a character appears in the Descr_strat file. If you swap the Epirotes around, they should switch faces.

    I always thought that Pyrrhos' face would best be represented by my avatar (lol my name on here says it all).

    The face of Phyrros in EB is perfect IMHO. He has a strong determined look, like hes thinking about fighting, killing, and destroying your army. His face fits well IMHO

    Why didn't you tell me that earlier? I couldn't have put that into my History paper about the Crusades and dazzled the examiner with my knowledge of complex Arabic.

    Yes, we do.
    Assassin comes from that word, but there is more than one way for any one word to enter a language's vocabulary from another language.

    In the one case, it was assimilated and given a (slightly) different, yet similar meaning: assassin.
    On the other hand, Hashishin is a "barbarised" version of the original term, used closest in meaning to the original (i.e. the Hashashin, which is ironically listed on Wikipedia under history of terrorism... new for me, but let's not get into that). Only it was adapted to English, using an already existent word, which in this case is hashish. Thence, Hashishin.

    And, finally, a word can be entirely "stolen" from another language, which is why they are also referred to as Hashshashin.

    I'll learn my Arabic if you learn your English.

    your welcome. I'm thinking of sarting a school for basic classical Arabic. It will be on the forum of course.

    problem is, I'm not sure If I have the time for it, with University looming closer.

    Why didn't you tell me that earlier? I couldn't have put that into my History paper about the Crusades and dazzled the examiner with my knowledge of complex Arabic.
    sorry about that...but you never asked.

    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    and yes, hashashin were terrorists-they assassinated mainstream muslims, Crusaders, and even tried to bump the mongols leaders off. the Mongols destroyed the sect, seeing that they had more sophisticated techniques for levelling a hilltop fortress

    helped that they were better spymasters as well, but I digress.


    anyways, back on topic:

    If it is possible, some person or other might be enterprising enough to start making portrait busts of various characters, and making them fit into EB. so we can have authentic Gallic, Greek, or even shall I say, Arabian faces?

    EDIT: that's quite a project there..maybe it was a bad idea proposing this
