    What if Pocatello were to speak with Hiawatha, Montezuma, Pacal, or Pachacuti?

    Pocatello (Shoshone language) - 23-3=20 - It seems that he will be next. Tondzaosha, not "Chief Pocatello". Usage of "white" is logical, because he led some attacks against settlers. But I have to agree, it's weird when you play as "The Black Napoleon" Shaka.

    Pocatello (Shoshone language) - (20-3)=17 I think his dialogue couldn't been written better. I don't think the VA was an actual Shoshone language speaker. It makes sense since many of the fluent Shoshone speakers are likely elderly, but still.

    Boudicca (Welsh) - (22+1)=23 A prominent Civfanatic poster complained about the choice of Welsh for Boudicca, but it is understandable since whatever language the queen spoke in real life was a Brittonic Celtic language, like Welsh. Her speaking Irish or Scottish Gaelic would be way worst. Plus the VA does a great job of portraying the fierce defiant Iceni Queen.

    Ashurbanipal (Akkadian) - 29 + 1 = 30 Best voice. Definitely says his lines with a large amount of gusto. He sounds like if I was actually talking to Ashurbanipal.
    Askia (Zarma) - 23
    Augustus Caesar (Latin) - 26 - 3 = 23 He sounds like a nice, old grandpa, not a great military emperor.

    It's so hard to pick someone to downvote now...


    Ashurbanipal (Akkadian) - 30+1=31 - His voice is very strong and so worthy of great king that Ashurbanipal was. Also, I love his hate state rage. "HATTA SADATA!"
    Askia (Zarma) - 23
    Augustus Caesar (Latin) - 23-3=20 - Let's not forget that Augustus was also a conqueror who greatly expanded Roman Empire. He has a good voice of godlike uninterested emperor of the world's strongest and greatest empire, but he sounds a little bit too soft for a conqueror to me.

    Augustus Caesar (Latin) - 20-3=17 - If it's Augustus after the Battle of the Teutoburg Forest, shouldn't he scream "Quintili Vare, legiones redde!“ and beat his head against the walls of his palace? :p And I still guess his voice should be a little bit more harsh for a conqueror. Then it would be perfect.

    Augustus Caesar (Latin) - (17-3)=14 Emile Khordoc was a decent pick for Augustus' voice, he just needed to sound more intimidating as the first Roman emperor. Voice direction is probably to blame here.

    Augustus Caesar (Latin) - 14-3=11 - Khordoc tried to sound "bombastic", but he was told to sound like an uniterested emperor. He did a great job, but a little bit harsher voice would make Augustus' voice totally flawless. We're picking the best of the best and we're focusing on the smallest details now.
