    Really happy with the Garrison change! 3/6/9 felt too late for these important buildings.

    Kudos to Mohawk for trying such an fundamental change, and then working so diligently to find the right balance.

    I waiting for the update which will make it available without Epic Games. When Old World appears in the Steam store, I will buy it and try it.

    I keep getting offers from the AI where I am allowed to pay much more coins than I have for a unit, resulting in a negative total which is reset to 0 at the beginning of the next turn.

    Little duke Marduk (Babylon) always dies within 1-3 turns, is that intentional?

    It is, he starts the game with a illness (and his sister Kashshaya and him start vengeful at each other).

    Sometime he becomes severely ill and dies, sometimes he recover. When he does it opens a bit of a dilemma regarding which sibling you want to invest in, because when the chosen one gets to reign the other will generally not like him.

    I've seen young Marduk grow up and do great things tho, that really depends on the RNG.

    Sounds like letting you buy it into negative gold was a bug, as most events disable the option until you free up enough gold, but I’d guess that at the start of next turn the game did its automatic “sell recourses to cover a negative gold balance” check and that your large store of stone etc was dipped into to cover the cost. Did you notice if on the next turn you had less of any resources?

    You mean Patriarch Marduk-Nahin-Ahi the Besieger who married the gracious but spoiled Scythian Ahatsunu? He's alive and well:
