    Time to choose a civ. Our two choices are Joan and Cleo.

    To refresh your memory:


    The French

    The French are Industrial and Commercial. They are lead by Joan d'Arc and they begin with the technologies of Alphabet and Masonry and have the Musketeer as their Unique Unit. The Musketeer replaces the Musketman and has one Offense Point more (3/4/1). Their favorite government is Republic and they shun the Monarchy. Their color is PINK. For more information on The French, click here


    The Egyptians

    The Egyptians are Industrial and Religious. They are lead by Cleopatra and they begin with the technologies of Ceremonial Burial and Masonry and have the War Chariot as their Unique Unit. The War Chariot replaces the Standard Chariot and has one Offense Point more (2/1/2). Their favorite government is Despotism and they shun the Republic. Their color is YELLOW. For more information on The French, click here

    The choice is yours. Poll will be open for 72 hours. Please vote!

    I changed my mind, so I voted for PINK. After all the only game I've played with the French I won it..

    I am probably one of the few who actually likes Joan as a leaderhead. Such diversity in wardrobe. :love: I can't wait for the Bald Era. :D

    GO FRANCE!!

    The Bald Era?! :ack:. Im sorry but I like to have my girl keep her Redhair ;).

    Speeking about Joan's wardrobe, I especaly like the Miliaristic Look in the intustrial age.

    I voted French.

    Who voted for FLYING MONKEY?

    Also, none of the 6 (currently) who voted for Egyptian identified themselves. Cautious?

    Those sneaky Egyptians! Come forth! See how the French stand proud on top of the castle walls, lofting rotted fruits and cows towards our enemies!

    I just voted for Egypt. I like Religious traits for the government, as it allows for cheap culture builds, and the immediate government switch is nice.

    I also voted Egypt. Partly out of love for the Industrious/ religious traits (Which I love) and also for how much I hate the French UU (And the French in general. Hey, I'm King Arthur, remember? I can't be a pinkie...)

    i would have to say the Egyptians are better just because of the religious trait, however i voted French just so we dont have to see Joan in the modern Era, i really dont like that pic.

    I like the religious benefits, but I disdain the headaches of rampant corruption. I guess I'm pink.

    Well on average commercial civs have only 4% less corruption than non-commercial civs. This would most certainly help with commerce, but makes hardly no differance in shield production.
