I'm playing my first Balseraph game (Emporer, Lakes, Standard size map, Marathon, 10 Civs) and I have a couple questions. The Gypsy wagons give -2$ and -1 Culture to enemy cities they sit in. Do they give any of that money and culture back to me? If so, does the money go back to a specific city (and get multiplied by +%$ buildings) of just back to the general treasury. Do I have to pay to support a gypsy wagon that is sitting in someone else's city? I like the slaves that The taskmaster can get by killing weak barbarians but he seems to be MUCH weaker than the Assassin he replaces. An assassin is str 12 against melee but a taskmaster is only str 4! If a taskmaster is upgraded to a courtesan does he get to keep the taskmaster promotion?
