    That´s right, Orthanc´s already making some of the ships for HTs that aaglo said perhaps he could do, but he didn´t really know, he couldn´t be sure, had lots of work, etc...
    [no slight on aaglo here]

    Orthanc may be the student, but soon he will be the master..... :) Aaglo, I am your father, it is true. You do not know the power of the dark side....

    huh? What are you talking about? It is not a contest. Also, Aaglo has shown his considerable skill spanning far more complex units then Orthanc has attempted so far. And at no point does Orthanc's (or Aaglo's) skill take anything away from anyone else.
    Isn't it sufficent to simply comment on their skill without denegrating them or someone else?

    I am pretty sure my good frien SOG here was doing some friendly ribbing to Aaglo. I've yet to see any squabbles over abilities here (well, not for a few years anyway..)

    Boo-hoo. I feel so disappointed in myself now, how could I let such thing happen. I must be really lazy.

    BTW, did you know that you can be really hilarious?


    ;) :p

    Come on Aaglo you can't let Orthanic beat you, Orthanic your going stroung, don't stop. Challange yourself guys if Aaglo makes 5 units one day Orthanic can make 9 (at that rate it will only take till Civ 4 to wear out the "popular request box"

    Nice bump there, a mere 5 years!

    The only 'totora' I can think of is the plant, is there any connection?

    One guess what the traditional Andean totora was made of.

    Yes, DUH!
    But this is a bunch of imaginary warships which are made out of wood…

    They're not that imaginary. The Inka were fully capable of building seaworthy vessels out of totora reeds, and in fact the first place the Spanish encountered them was in the Pacific Ocean, 300 miles from the nearest Inka settlement.

    im from peru and i know that the incans never used totora ships, the Chincha culture (Pre-Incan culture) used this material to made ships that traveled from Peru to Ecuador. The Chincha culure was dominated by the incans an they continue making this ships but the incas dont matter about this ships.
    Sorry for revive this post but im peruvian an i want that the people know my history have the correct names.
