Barb spawn rates are a function of game turns. On quick, they don't have as many turns to spawn since cities start popping up sooner. So we'll see fewer barbs than a normal game here. Hence we may get away with just warriors (and they're aggressive!). I'd prefer to skip archery if possible since we're not going to use HA this game (I think). PS - mdy said he'll hopefully join SGOTM11 but he's busy until the new year. @mysty - nice to see you're still up for playing deity I should play more deity but I find that if I don't finish a game in a sitting, it's pretty unlikely I'll finish it ever and deity games take more than one sitting.
