    I'd love that. James VII/James I is certainly the most palatable of the Stuarts, and I think the Stuarts are underappreciated in terms of "big personalities" compared to the Tudors. :p

    But in having King James VII lead Scotland it would suggest that Scotland is more "British" then Scottish; as King James VII became King James I of England and united the two Kingdoms to make the United Kingdom of Great Britain.
    That would mean both England and Scotland are both directed towards being British rather then English and Scottish. (not that I'm complaining; just pointing out before someone else complains about it)

    Although; King James would be pretty cool if you can have him lead either Scotland or England each game.

    Very fair points. However, I will take James VII/I over blue-faced kilted William Wallace or Merida of DunBroch or Boudicca or whatever stereotype they might dredge up. :p

    They could also go with Jamie Fraser of Outlander Fame, if they want a more fresh pop culture reference. :)

    ...or Nicola Sturgeon. I'll take anything over Nicola Sturgeon - but thankfully they won't add leaders still alive today; I think the most recent leader we've ever had is Queen Wilhelmina? But she does come strong after John Curtain who was most recent. These leaders are getting more and more recent...

    @AvianBritish The most recent leader to appear in a Civ game was Mao in Civ I (he died 15 years before Civ I's release).

    Pretty sure they said in one of the livestreams that there's a new mission that does that. It doesn't kill the governor, but it goes back in the unassigned pool.

    Think you guys mean James VI and I, not James VII?

    I can't really see them choosing him - why have Scotland at all if you are going to choose a King who was also King of England? Also, perhaps someone better informed can enlighten me but isn't he mostly famous for having a Bible named after him, being particularly right-on about witchcraft and not getting blown up? :mischief:

    I'm sure Scotland will have a medieval ruler. Hopefully Robert the Bruce and not William Wallace (or MQoS) but very likely not James VI/I either.

    Yup he mentioned playing something today. He can't say what it is. Unfortunately I'm still at work, and I still don't know how to watch a Twitch stream at a later time. Especially problematic when other people are streaming on his channel after him.

    I'm sure that if he starts streaming R&F, there will be a thread here with the highlights. Not the same, but better than nothing. :)

    Edit: typo

    It's a holiday here in Bolivia, so I will have time for the hints and to see if Quill was referring to Civ, which is most likely.

    I'm just gonna tune in when he starts streaming, if it's Civ VI I keep watching if it isn't I'm gonna do something else. Got nothing to do here anyways.
