COTM146 Montezuma of the Aztecs Spoilers Now, this was a conundrum! Young Montezma had just acceded to the throne after his uncle Itzcoatl. This uncle had had a certain weakness for tobacco and had led his people to a rich valley full of these leaves. Indeed, he and many of the people had of late become all but addicted to the drug. Vague was among the Aztecs now the memory of the Golden Land they had previously known, where Gold and Wheat were plentiful. Only Montezuma had some notion of where it had been, and he feared what would happen to his race if another one would colonize this Eldorado, as he called it. But what to do first! His was an Agricultural and Militaristic people with knowledge of building Granaries as well as Barracks. He was sure his powerful Jaguar Warriors, known to no other people, could conquer any land. But he was afraid the military conquest of Eldorado would cause a Golden Age for his people at a very unripe stage of its perhaps long and glorious history. On the other hand, would Rapid Expansion be enough to secure Elodrado? So, Barracks or Granary, or perhaps both? Starting Location Rule Changes For this game, the Jaguar Warrior has an improved attack strength of 2 instead of 1. Therefore, it's also more expensive at 20 instead of 15 shields. Revelations I just noticed that there is a function in the editor to reveal or conceal any tile on the map. How stupid we have been with our Outposts and Radar Towers! I have used this function to reveal parts of the map which may be interesting for the pre-game discussion.
