Personally, I am happy with Japan being our chosen Tribe for the ISDN. But in the rules discussion, the restriction on AA UUs was striken. This means that more Tribes are now available for us to choose from. I have listed them all below. Note that even Persia is allowed. CIFO does not like to play against Persia. They feel that Persia is a very dominant team, and tried to rule them out at first. Therefore, I propose that no matter who we chose, our nation's color should be Teal Green, or one of the colors of the Persians. The rules state that nationalities will be unknown to all teams at the start. Only the Refs will know which teams are playing until first contact. I suppose if the score marquee on the game screen has team names only, and the diplomat screen is the same way, it could work. Custom Leader heads may also be available. Having the rule that a team must get permission to enter your cultural borders will make deception kind of fun. If we can make the other team on our continent (or all teams) stay away until the can beat Immortals (because they think we are the Persians), it will be to our advantage. Especially when we get something like a Samurai or some other UU in the MA. Just a thought. Here are the Tribes we can now choose from. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ China (+) India (+) Arabia (+ 0) Japan (+) Mongolia (+ 0) Germany (+ 0) Ottomans (+) Spain (-0) England (-) Russia (+) America (-) Scandinavia (+ 0) Portugal (-) France (-0) Korea (+) Persia (+) Carthage (+ 0) Rome (+) Greece (+) Egypt (+) Babylon (+ 0) Zulu (-0) Hittites (-0) Byzantines (+) The notations to the right of the Tribe names are Calis' recommedation at the time of his original posting. So what do you think? Stick with the Japanese or choose again. Please be specific about which tribe you like. If we do run another poll, it will be single choice.
