I was mistaken about puppets giving happiness, you were mistaken about unhappiness being so punishing to combat strength. Should I now say that you don't know a damn about what you are saying in the same tone you used with me? I dislike wide warmongering, true, but I've done it. I'm not imposing my opinion, just giving it, just how Bite and the rest are doing. Even more, I was also open to modify it later if it ends up being too strict. About not feeding city states, if you avoid farms, place villages in plains better than grassland, chopp forests on hills, the city state won't be able to produce too much food and it will not grow too fast.
