    For some reason I can't get this to come out as a normal size image, but if you click on it, you should be able to see it enlarged. It shows Gaspard de Richemont, commander of a unit of Order Foot Soldiers, in the service of the Sultan of Egypt and currently part of a jihad army.

    That guy will have a lot to explain when he gets back home to the Grand Master of his order!

    In those simple times there was a great wonder and mystery in life. Man walked in fear and solemnity, with Heaven very close above his head, and Hell below his very feet. God's visible hand was everywhere, in the rainbow and the comet, in the thunder and the wind. The Devil too raged openly upon the earth; he skulked behind the hedge-rows in the gloaming; he laughed loudly in the night-time; he clawed the dying sinner, pounced on the unbaptized babe, and twisted the limbs of the epileptic. A foul fiend slunk ever by a man's side and whispered villainies in his ear, while above him there hovered an angel of grace . . .

    I did a quick look in the unit prod, Order Foot are faction limited for build purposes, but not Culture limited. So I'm guessing that unit got siphoned off by the jihad as it moved through.

    Good find.

    Nice guess, but I encountered about 2 or 3 other Order Foot units in Egyptian service. Those ones were not in a jihad and had too many men to make siphoning plausible. My best guess is that they were bribed, possibly after turning rebel which would make them more bribable. I suppose there's always the old stand by too - a corrupt save. All I know is that the Grand Master is really mad now.

    I wonder if Grand Masters can send assassins?

    Well now, you started something. An Egyptian jihad just attacked me and the LEADER was in charge of twenty some order foot soldiers. That Grand Master's head must be spinning now.

    Hmmm; they do need a good income to build all of that stuff in their fortress/cathedral.

    Well, I thought that the obvious explanation was that the order foot soldiers had been abducted by aliens and held prisoner for a year on the Mars so they could be questioned about the Da Vinci code, in which case joining a Jihad would be the obvious course of action to take, but if you perfer a complicated conspiracy theory, then the Grand Master could be a suspect.
