One of the best features of the civ 3 conquests expansion pack was the regicide and mass regicide game option. This added a fun element of strategy to the game as the player tried to find good locations for their monarchs to hide and be well-protected. Considering that Europe was the age of kings, I think that Rhyes of Europe would be a perfect opportunity to bring it back, at least as an option. IMHO the monarch should no longer be practically defenseless, but should be able to keep a bodyguard of three units. This way monarchs would be better protected, and in mass regicide, they could be used somewhat as warlords to attack other nations. The troops assigned to the kings bodyguard should get some kind of bonus, such as free promotions or increased strength for example. This would fit the time period perfectly and bring back the fun of regicide. Would this work? Is it already being implemented? Is it a good idea? Would it be stupid? Please give me feedback on this idea.
