    Excellent question!

    Jack's splitting his time between forums BTW.

    Is the playthrough done Jack? and you are posting about it everyday? or do you play once a week or so to get material for the next 5-6 posts?

    They joined the Gallic Confederation, so they will have been absorbed by it.

    All of the information can be seen on the faction screen (which I really need to take a full picture of at some point, won't be for a few updates though as those are already planned). You and the other family (or multiple families for Rome/Carthage) are vying for internal power which is derived from gravitas and leading armies and so on. You can act against the other families and they can act against you. If you get too weak internally, a civil war can kick off later in the game.

    [QUOTE=moridin;616280]Thanks for the answer Jack! I assume that from what we have been told so far, that all these members (of your family or the other) can be chosen to lead your army and the info about them can be seen from the character screen../QUOTE]

    Yes.

    No governors, though Generals can give bonuses to regions depending on their traits/ancillaries.

How much income do you get? how much do units cost? Does 500 equal like 1500 in Empire or Napoleon for example? What's the upkeep of units? I know it differs per unit, but on average, or an example?

    If anyone noticed something I didn't that answers these questions I would appreciate it. If Jack could answer that's even better of course.
    You start the campaign with 5000 and each turn it appears to win around 1600, in Jack's campaign. And he has recently said that for example to pay the debt you have to pay around 1000. I don't know the cost of units.

    So there's one other "family" for each faction but Rome and Carthage, who's members can be assigned armies and such? Considering their faction wiki, does this mean the Arverni can have a druid general?

    Jack what happens if you always choose generals from your family? Are there generals not belonging to a faction?
    All the characters in the game, including agents belong to a family?
    How do you gain power?
    Is it possible to exterminate all the other families?
    Is it possible a family to be destroyed and another to emerge?
    Can you see somehow all the major members of the other families?
    What options do you have for each of a family member?

    Sorry for lots of questions, but I am really excited with this game.

    Also, awesome diplomatics and foreign policy.

    Aaaa, final question: Is Ieron of Syracuse in the game?

    Ah, it was hidden in that corner! The only reason I could find it this time was because you linked to the picture and I knew the exact number, I didn't have a clue that was the income (although I had not noticed those number at all)!

    Anyway, thanks for clearing that up and linking to the right spot, because I was thinking I was getting a bit crazy...
