    A new civ I made for fun, the Jernoran are a race of halflings. They aren't at all like the Hobbits from LOTR though (even if they are the main inspiration) these Halflings are troublesome opportunists, nomadic wanderers, and seekers of wealth like the ones from DnD, well thats the description I got from wikipedia :p

    Changelog for Vers 2!
    1. Made worker halfling size
    2. Gave new ability "steal gold" to Thief
    3. Added new building "Levee" that makes rivers a lot better for halflings
    4. Thieves Guild now gives more exp to recon units
    5. New unit graphic for Myrmidon
    6. halflings now get "Halfling Slinger" uu for archer
    7. New "Pitfall" improvement that causes damage to non halflings who move on it

    Features

    leaders get 3 traits each, all units get weak promo, all units get halfling promo, all units are very small. They have a good synergy with recon line and are good with animals.

    Leaders

    Karine the Swift

    Spoiler :



    Alignment:

    Neutral

    Traits:

    Fin/def/raiders

    Background:

    Karine the Swift is the reliable and resourcful leader of the Jernoran but she has a shadowy past from her time as a nomad and hunter and her other...profession, she was trained as an assassin to serve esus but left that path to lead her people, she is respected for her combat skills and wisdom, she is known to be a collector of artefacts, and will do anything in her power to obtain such things.




    Kaliptar the III

    Spoiler :



    Alignment:

    Neutral

    Traits:

    aggr/def/raiders

    Background:

    Kaliptar is a rogue and leads his people to banditry and thieving, he is very cunning and enjoys wealth but he spends gold as quickly as he aqcuires it.




    Other Stuff:

    Shadow UU: Shadow Step
    Workboat UU: Raft
    Scout UU- Thief, can explore rival territory, can steal gold and equipment.
    Hunter UU- Rogue, same as thief except it kidnaps instead of steals.
    Hunting lodge UB: Thieves Guild
    Archer UU: Halfling Slinger
    Longbowmen UU: Light Crossbow
    Crossbowman UU: Ballista
    Arquebusier UU: Arquballista
    Ranger UU: Myrmidon has courage, dominate animal, explore rival
    Horsemen UU: Mule Rider, this is temporary until I get art for War Dogs which are halflings on ferocious dogs

    Hero:

    Amerantha Silverback

    Spoiler :



    Inspiration picture, currently she looks like this..



    I cant edit graphics or anything so if anyone is willing to stick her on a wolf I'd appreciate it :) I got the graphic from
    http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=250360
    Also it would be cool to get rid of the teamcolor hair and just make it black/brown


    World Spell: Rise of the Halfmen, gives all halfing units extra strength

    I need ideas and suggestions :)

    I could also use some new art if you want to help with this PM me.

    Special thanks to:

    • Tasunke for ideas
    • Opera for buttons
    • Chuggi for units
    • GarretSidzaka for the female crossbow
    • Kailric for units
    • PhysicLlamas for Great Maw (pitfall)

    I duno... starting with the Weak promotion could severely gimp them, especially in the early game. Perhaps a strength reduction would be better? Something like -20% strength/+10% withdrawal for the racial promotion.

    With kaliptar as the leader they have aggressive, raiders and defensive and halfling which is altogether +20% str, +10% str in borders, 20% withdraw always, 0-2 first strikes always, can move on enemy roads ... they are really small, smaller than dwarves. Giving them -20% strength would just negate the effects of combat 1 or whatever, Weak isn't that crippling for them with all the bonuses they get.

    EDIT: Well that gave me an idea for their worldspell:

    Gives all their units +1 str

    need a name for it.

    Oh! I did them too since I begun before you answered. I don't know if you did the 125% stretch trick so that they look alright ingame (not in the selection screen).

    Did the hero and leaders' buttons and banners :)
