6 Amazingly High-Tech Ancient Weapons

To keep in mind for weapons in the book.

You probably have realized at this point I'm relatively into the linguistics of warfare I assume.

Like how they're screwed when winter comes?

Or do they just migrate to Mexico?

Then we ship their carcasses to the cold tundras of Novuvsita.

I fully support the most tech. advanced empires making extensive use of both Arquebus and Bows, like the 16th century Ottomans.

Pikes, spear militias, Arquebus, archers and cannons. I fully support those as the general style, though certainly not the rule.

It would be cool if one of the clans had semi-automatic cross bows.

Aari'Vi maybe? They don't seem to have many special traits other then their naval power.

They'll be like Super-Genonese Crossbowmen!

Such as awesome flame throwers.

I can totally see the Iga'vi using those. They just seem like the type of empire that would have such a device.

To have flamethrowers mounted inside their steam-powered armored vehicles.

An Iga'Vi diplomat was later heard speaking,

"Screw those Jay'Vi, Aari'Vi and Valiero'Vi, we have flame thrower tanks!"

That would be epic. If I was fighting in a battle, then my enemy come along in a fire shooting tank, I'd probably run.

Not to mention armored galleys. (Though these actually might be impracticable giving the lack of wind)

These things would probably suck at actually fighting, at best they'd be like the WW1 tanks in reliability and nowhere near them in fire power, armor, speed or anything else.

Still, if this giant metal thing was going towards be spewing flames everywhere, it would be quite frightening.

That's exactly it.

Fear factor.

You can conquer a thousand with a few if you use fear.

Ever watch Lord of the Rings?

That's a good example of putting fear to good use.

Really? Well, just go onto YouTube and look up Lord of the Rings Battle.

You'll get the idea.

YOU'VE NEVER SEEN THE LORD OF THE RINGS!!!???

Then, my friend, you have not lived.

I suggest you read the books first (preferably all of Tolkien's Arda novels, most of which are prequels to The Lord of the Rings - note: not suitable for younger readers or the highly immature) before watching the trilogy. Then you play the games, most notably the Battle for Middle Earth series. Smile



Anywho, Lichen's got a point.

Those are nice games, they're one of the few who use the battalion system that I know of other then the Total War franchise.

Do what Temporal says, he's right.
