    Ye, that's what and who I was thinking of. And it's spelt Oda Nobunaga.
    Edit: Ya, I knew the theme of the event, but I could not remember the detals, since I read about it in a book highly based on the rise of Tokugawa Ieyasu, just with names changed. It's called Shogun, a pretty good read, and most of it's true history. (like I said, names and minor events changed to suit the story).

    Wow, I learn more history on this forum than I ever did in school.

    Well, Japanese history is incredibly complicated. More detailed, twisted, and violent than that of the U.S.A. and England put together, plus it's 10 times as long.

    Why not simply replace some of the tier 4 units for the Elohim to civ specific versions that monks can upgrade to? For example, replace Paladin with Grand Master, Immortal with Hierophant, etc.

    The issue is one of game balance as well as flavor; since Monks will form a large component of any Elohim fighting force, they are at a disadvantage not being able to upgrade their high level units to T4. But I think the above proposal might address both problems.

    i would think just allowing them to become paladin, druid, eidolon, and high priests would be a simple and agreeable fix. creating a new UU for elohim for monks could upgrade to in addition to the others i already mentioned would be the best solution however.

    Well, as I've said to others, do it yourself or convince Kael (or any other member of the FfH team) to do it.
