I don't know if you have ever noticed this effect but it goes something like this... On turn two you meet a french warrior (or any other civ's warrior): Howdy there, how ya doing? Later on you swap embassies to find that Paris is about 20 hexes away through a dense forest. Huh? How did he get to you so fast at the beginning of the game then? Even better, sometimes he's a spearman so he's presumably already found a ruin. Since I first noticed this I've realised it's the case quite a lot of the time (unless of course I got an isolated start) So I'm left wondering whether the other civs warriors start in random locations (i.e. not next to their settler), or whether they get to move around really fast until you find them? Any thoughts?
