    Hey for some reason later in the game when I use an Elderly Statesman in any of my colonies the rebel sentiment actually goes DOWN?

    Is this a bug or because I'm using the new mod that came out yesterday?

    Thanks.

    The elder stateman lowers the rebel sentiment because you have added a person... HIM! So he counts as eing for the king. He has to convince himself of what he preaches.

    LOL, that sounds stupid, the Elder Statesmen should be first to be Rebels.

    No, he is a European Statesman educated in Sorbonne or Oxford Univeristy or somewhere where he studied arts such as:
    Brown nosing, such as licking the behind of every powerful figure in the empire. Intimidation, such as pressing tax charges upon poor people.
    Slaughter, such as hiring mercenaries for the king's wars. So being one of the King's educated and loyal subjects, he probably worked in the royal administration. Before he set sails for the New World, he was indifferent to the causes of freedom in the colonies, and had no idea of any such thing.

    Then after falling victim to a political scandal, being caught in hot action with a heretic monk in the herb-garden at a monestary a hot summer day in Provence, his gay friend being burnt at the stake for being a heretic and he would have to leave Europe for good. There was no tolerance for such.

    So he arrives at your colony and begin working in your Town Hall. Nobody knows he is gay, they didnt came out of the closet those days.
    So at work as statesman in your colony he is doing lots and lots of meaningless things while he grows fat, over the years he will be inspired by other thinkers and those of rebellious thoughts. Then he will run campaigns to add more rebels, and perhaps he will be one of your founding fathers :)

    But when he arrives he is mostly confused. New job in town hall what a ****load of paperwork using a heavy wood press and there is no internet there. Its hot and cigar smoke everywhere even outside because of all the surplus tobacco bonfires, and there is a lot of nasty hairy spiders coming from them. The drunk 'ol pirate speaks of a hidden treasure, while your statesman is trying to make a map its an old indian burial ground there instead and everyone who goes there mysteriously dissapear. Then pirates come pillaging the rum store.
    And he's got Indians here and there, some nice others chop scalps, who is who? and what is this food??? eeek!
    Everything he will get used to, in the end he will love it! :king:

    I can really imagine your described statesman! Fantastic!! Are you a writer or do you serve the state as well?

    ...because of all the surplus tobacco bonfires...

    LMAO!
    There sure seems to be a lot of 'leaf' in the game. Perhaps there should be a seperate factory system for hemp? It was, after all, a big product back in the age of sail, eh?

    Also, our hapless Statesman could just be P-O'd at a 'colonial' posting, after all his years of brown nosing! The nerve of that lousey monarch... grrr!
