Julia Livilla is a bit hard to get to, and I fear that that would be an exceedingly powerful terit to get on the drop. Perhaps she and Livia should start neutral as well. Controlling one or both of them should be a strategic decision.... could also be interesting if they could attack/bombard each other.


Or potentially be attacked from the gods? (I don't know the history here - but did the gods tell them to do it?)

But neutrals also sounds like a good idea to me.

I kinda like the concept of the gods attacking/bombarding the lethal chicks. Makes them more than just small bonuses accessible only by attacking neutrals.

I do have my moments.

And let the record show that I am in favor of aggressive fictionalization for this map, especially as regards the many names that occur more than once. No one's ever heard of any of the various Julia Caesaris broads. Would it kill the overall concept of the map to change a few of those names? (I'm reasonably confident you would get few, if any, angry PMs complaining about monkeying around with the verifiable history of the family in question, and even so, those few angry-PM-senders are losers and must be ignored).

Version 7.
This opens up Julius Caesar to another avenue of outside attack from Emperor Augustus through adoption - yes there were symbolic adoptions

Also, i have possible solved the Julia Caesaris too many names situation.

and....am trying to bring every name down to 2 where possible.

FOR DISUSSION....there is a possible further link to Julius Caesar from outside attack....if we bring Cleopatra into the picture.....that would create a link through marriage between Mark Antony <-> Cleopatra <-> Julius Caesar and don't forget there was a son to Cleopatra and Julis Caesar -> Caesarion.
Would this be feasible?

Does adoption count as a member of the bonus continent?

I think the adoption routes make it too easy to expand from one Emperor to another??

Good point C.
I would rather say no, there is no added bonus for adoption, and i will have to mark that on the map.
But it is simply a way of linking that side of the map back to J Caesar.

I agree. But since they start neutral that wouldn't be an issue at the start until those Emperors were "born"
