    Anyone that has been watching the news lately has no doubt seen the troubles in Iraq and Syria. A group of Islamic terrorists sporting a black flag. Am I the only one that thinks Isis/Isol flag looks like the barbarian flag in civ4. The middle eastern civs are being threatened by a hoard of raging barbarians.

    Could be one of those (insert barbarian name) have united, a dangerous number of infantry have spawned events? It seems Iraq has been negligent with unit building.

    Assad got tied up in a huge war with the FSA, so he had to pull all of his fogbusters out of the desert back to fight, and then a bunch of raging hordes spawned.

    ...but this late in the game he shouldn't need fogbusters.

    See--this is why we should have started the game with random events off! :p

    It's probably one of those : "Atilla the Hun seeks to destroy what is called 'civilization'. Expect being pawned with a horde of barbarian units any turn now" random event !! I would like to have a few words with a guy that forgot to check "no random events" option on the map we are playing now !!!!! :aargh: :trouble:

    The Chinese built the Great Wall, so if the barbarians spread the Chinese should be safe.

    ...can barbarians build spies? If so, would being invisible counter fog-busting?

    Could make for a very nasty module if the barbarians were given the techs they needed to mass spawn spies.
