Thread: Assassin costs...

  1. #1

    Default Assassin costs...

    In my Romani campaign, Assassins were 5000 each. In my Casse campaign, they were only 500.

    Is this a bug? Or is it because one can find such a plentiful supply of football hoodlums in the UK, then as now. :=)

    Bug. Should be fixed in 0.81.

    Do you mean .81?

    I am using .80 right now. BTW, which is correct, 500 or 5000?

    Whoops, I meant 0.81.

    I think it should be 500 for everybody.

    It must be 500 each; otherwise one single assasin would cost more than say what, one unit of elite pikemen; or a unit of elite assault infantry...

    It's a mistake? I thought this was intentional to show that the romans disliked assassins?

    Haven't installed EB 0.81 yet, but has this been fixed?

    Edit: Unless, of course, this is intentional . . .

    They didn't in my Casse 0.8 campaign. The Romani churned out entire legions of assassins (and spies) in that game...imagine how filthy rich they must have been.

Of course, I heard this on the forum only, no actual text to back it up, except maybe a lack of any word on assassination in my Roman history book.

    If that is true I find it ironic. Hannibal commited suicide so as not to give the pleasure of killing him to Roman assassins.

    Or maybe that just liked to leave that image to posteriority. Like the roman governor who supposedly dismissed Viriatus assassins with the sentence "Rome doesn't pay to traitors", after of course, they had betrayed and killed the man...
