      Consider it a "thank you" for that Anglo-Saxon mod --- I haven't tried it yet, but I've been enjoying the music. :)

      Have you ever heard of Bernard Cornwell's "Saxon Stories" series? It's a historical fiction series following the struggle of a Saxon prince raised by Vikings, who enters into the service of Alfred. The series is a favorite of minel, and after seeing your Anglo-Saxon scenario last night I thought it might be of interest to you.

      Plotinus,

      Thank you for making the Mammoth unit. Now I finally can have mammoths in the tundra for some of my mods, rather than using the elephant.

      Sincerely Yours,

      You'd look more like a learned scholar then, rather than a pleasant chap on a nice sofa chatting about his book. :)

      Did you know that you wave your hands about a lot when you talk? I did a course on English Language and Communication Studies, so I notice lots of filler speech and other things like that. :D

      You know, you should grow a beard to look more like your avatar. You look far too normal in your video. :)

      On a more serious note, I semi-recently did a primary source thing for class, a bog-standard comparison of Stephanus' Life of Wilfrid and Bede, and wasn't allowed to use a whole lot of external information. Now that I've turned it in, though, I seem to recall something about the whole Chad thing that wasn't in either Bede or Stephanus. Something about Oswiu kicking Wilfrid out as part of a conflict with his son Aehlfrith...? Do you know more about that, and could you clear that up a bit for me?

      If it's more convenient for you to put that in the Ask a Theologian thread, that's fine :p

      Reading Bede puts weird images into your mind. I was going through the whole Wilfrid Thing and came across good old Bishop Chad. Since the only people I know as "Chad"s are bros, I immediately started thinking of a guy in vestments with a popped collar saying "dude" to everybody. :crazyeye:

      And then I realized that this wasn't even an original idea. :(

      Yes, I was about to give a full reply which would have taken at least an hour (Which is fine.) But the thing is, I posted half of it, and then my CPU glitched and I lost it. I didn't have the willpower or time to retype it right away. That said, I did want to get that one verse out there (It was the most important part of what I posted) and so I posted that.

      I will retype my full point eventually.

      Again, apologies for another short answer. I was definitely prepared to give a long one, but after a half hour of typing, somehow I lost everything. And I no longer have time to actually finish my post (I am busy today for most of the day.)

      Apologies extended.

      We need you're help in this thread, we seem to have reached a bit of a dilemma.

    I walked all the way from East St Louis, never had but that one, one thin dime. I laid my head in a New York woman's lap, she laid her little cute head in mine. She tried to make me believe by the rattlings of her tongue the sun would never, never shine.

    Try the Anglo-Saxon scenario... Or can you build an empire of Africa? A list of units. Sensible religion discussion.
