I also get a queezy stomach when I hear DLC but considering the intial price of the game I can get over it. I have enough self-control to avoid buying any DLC that I am not interested in; which will likely be most of them. My main interest is the Grand Campaign anyway since I really don't think that...

I also think that many people are waiting and hoping that a physical copy is released. That is the case with me but if no physical copy is released I will get a digital copy, though many people simply refuse to download games for any reason.

I believe it was simply a depot during the SYW. It was probably lightly fortified but more like a fortified camp than a true fortress.

Your basic smoothbore musket was the predominate weapon. Some specialized units such as Jagers and Grenzers used rifled muskets.

By Force of Arms by Christopher Duffy is an excellent book on the SYW.

I am very sure that it is much easier to "admire" Frederick and things Prussian from a very great distance distance of time. Same with Alexander, Caesar, and Napoleon. Hell, we got all bent out of shape over a few minor taxes. :cursing:

No competition at all. I beta tested and own H&M and it is a really nice game but it is strictly a tactical game. RoP is very similar to the previous AGEOD games with some nice enhancements and will cover the entire SYW at a strategic/operational level. Get them both! :thumbsup:
