so my eyeballing was a bit off. not suprising. can you also check the values for level 2 (attack 2) amazons against level 2 (evade 2) other tribes? basically the idea is that amazons with attack 1 should be equivalent to imperial with evade 1, amazons with attack 2 should be equivalent to imperial with evade 2, and amazons 10 should be equivalent to other 10.

What about blowguns for hunting? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blowgun

Could become more efficient if you add curare: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Curare

So amazons would have frog farms? Input cassava + water and output curare?

could be another route for attack. and blowguns are short-ranged enough that seeing them used only in melee wouldn't look too bad.

Are you sure? It is still a weapon with range... And if an opponent evades, he just steps a little bit back, so...

soldier stats and levels:

starting stats attack 12-16, healt 130, defence 5, evade 30.

top promotions attack 2 healt 3 defence 2 evade 3

bonus for promotion 8 - 23 - 10 - 15

soldier wares:

(...)

  • sturdy boots: good boots make you faster on your feet. Costs 1 rubber 1 balsa and is needed to train evade from 0 to 1

  • swift boots: costs 3 rubber. needed to train evade from 1 to 2.

  • hero's boots: cost 3 rubber and 1 gold. needed to train evade from 2 to 3.

So, the hero's boots would be probably the strongest promotion in the whole game, because they would make evasion 80% better. Isn't that a little bit too strong?

I just recognized that I miscalculated. Sorry. It's not 80%, but 60%. So it might not be a problem

shouldn't it be 30 + (15 * 3) = 75%?

which is good, but if they need 8 hits to kill an opponent and they die with 6 hits, it roughly works. that was my math, and einstein proved it was close but not accurate.

Well, that's not the number I was talking about face-wink.png

somene is gaining traction for an egyptian tribe, so I have to revive this old idea of mine and ask: if I provide some detailed models for the economy, is someone else going to program the amazonians and draw the models?

because i can't program, and I'm even worse at drawing.
