    Default Help for a noob

    how do you drop returnees on younger family members If I could figure this out roman glory would be unstoppable
    There, but for the grace of God, goes John Bradford

    My aim, then, was to whip the rebels, to humble their pride, to follow them to their inmost recesses, and make them fear and dread us. Fear is the beginning of wisdom.

    I am tired and sick of war. Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation.

    1:Get them both in the same city
    2:Click on the older general
    3:drag the 'returnees' on to the younger general's unit card


    Glad to see your enjoying the game and Welcome to the .org!
    But for the future, such topics should be in the entrance hall, thanks

    It is nice to do this when you know one of your family members is going to die soon but it's really not needed. You can make it through the game without doing that. Endgame you will have a lot of acadamies and scriptoriums so your family members will have pretty high influence and management numbers just by sitting in town.

    Also it's good to give to old, soon to die generals, retinues you want to get rid off.

    Maybe. I had a strange vision here the other day.

    How do you alternate between units on the map that haven't moved yet? I want to move between my diplomats, spies and army units that have moves left but they are thrown across the map in varous places where I have no watch towers and its dark and hard to find. The place I thought it might work only cycles through armies that are stationed in town, any help is appreciated thanks.

    Oh yeah, I forgot about that but that only flips through family members. So if you have a couple armies led by captains it won't work.

    Indeed. Is there a complete keyboard hot key list somewhere on the site?

    On the back of the manual I find a nice list for the battle map but it all seems incomplete, maybe there are too many combinations to fit on the back page.
