One thing that I really liked in ETW and NTW was the taxation system and how it affected different Class's.
Now I have read many thoughts from community members over the past month's regarding Shogun 2 and realize many here know far more about Japanese history than myself.
So with that said I humbly put forth my idea of how to implement the New TW Taxation System in Feudal Japan. Feel free to correct me if I am ignorant of something vital!
First we need probably more classes than "Upper Class" and "Lower Class"
Perhaps we can have these 4 Classes which are all taxed separatly.Hence give different affects depending on how they are taxed.
Maybe combine both Merhants and Artisans into the Middle Class.
Question: Was it prestigious in Japan to be a Merchant?
Taxation of the Samurai should affect battle moral and unrest in provinces.
Taxation of merchant and Artisans should effect the econmy
Taxation of Agriculturalists should effect population growth rates.
NOTE: Also some of you may feel that using a taxation system would be wrong for this era of Japan, but I urge you to consider that probably CA will use money to represent a nations wealth. With that said a taxation system that takes money from classes probably makes the most sense.
