"I just want to shout out to Larry and say 'hello' to my fellow gamers...especially to you Elbowmaster and Grognads!"
As some of you may (or may not) know...I have been looking forward to the reprint of CotE game by Eagle Games! This should be good...for it was one of my fav GM series game to play!
Reading through the "NEW" rules...I was a bit shocked to see some new changes...some were good and some may need further tinkering to see if it was going to work.
What I am really stumped on and I am sorry if I missed it in the rules (for over 20 yrs now)....How does the tribute scale in relation to the cities and regions gained handled?
All this time we thought you would receive the income value from the Tribute scale for what you currently own in addition you would receive bonus 5 talents PER city owned PER turn.
ie: If Johnny owned lands worth 40 points and he currently has (3) cities... We always played it: Johnny would receive 5 talents per turn per city....for the cities and only 40 pts for the region he currently owns! The next turn he would get an additional 15 talents moved up the track for having the (3) cities plus the lands he owns (which is 40)....so would he be at 70 talent mark? Basically, does he get a bonus (15) talents EACH turn for having 3 cities....plus his land?
Is this correct?
If not...how does one get to second inflation mark (205 talents)- would be almost impossible!
I was just informed by Ted (official Eagle Answer man)....that it would be 55 talents per turn...meaning if Johnny would just have those lands worth 40 and (3) cities...he would receive 55 talents PER turn....is that correct?
(Have I been playing it wrong all these years?)-
Please...someone straigthen this out for me once and for all!!! (There are couple occasions that I have been wrong...doesn't happen all too often-lol)-
