skirmishers: fast and cheap, can move twice like mounted (3+3) son can attack and retreat to safety. Very weak but good at softening a defender.

peltasts: like spearmen but no damage bonuses vs knight, instead throw javelins at 1 hex (same effect as archer) and get big defensive bonus in forest and mountain (could also have damage bonus against skirmishers!)

Scythed chariots: can only move on desert and grassland. Move only once (5). Very weak in defence but very good in attack with big damage bonus against knights and centurions

sappers: they are only effective against buildings, can work from within a ram, the effect is to soften the target building and/or reduce the defensive bonus.

engineers: no combat ability, can turn a building type into another by paying a price in gold for the difference + the work
engineers could also be used to set (invisible) traps: enemy caught into a trap can't move further for that turn and has its defence reduced (no actual damage but it's more vulnerable to attacks).

marines: weak infantry (spearmen without damage bonus) but can board and capture enemy ships

market/trade centers: like a small mine, produce 100g

trade caravans: like a trade center produce 100g but it is a unit that can move.

Fishing fleet: a unit that produce 100g like a trade caravan but on water

turtle ship: armoured ship, very good against missile (ram on water).

i like peltasts, skirmishers, chariots (but little bonus against knights, high against lighetd unit + mounted units), i like turtle ship and finally i like trade center too, but not caravans or fishing fleet.

Some of those things would work but not all.

Neat ideas, I'd love to see them in action.

Another one could be Churches; heals anyone on it right back to their full potential.

I have to have made to order myspace images produced up, would you accomplish that kind of style function by any opportunity? Jadescape Marymount
