Ummm, can I take it that Gnaeus Cornelius Scipio Calvus is not in the game ?


Yes, that is correct. 'Africanus', his father, and Cethegus are the only Cornelii in the game.

Noted - Thanks.

Who is Bomilcar here ?


Bomilcar

I wanted some additional generals that would add a little "what if" variety for the Carthaginians.

Re the link - thanks, that was indeed informative. However, your subsequent remark confuses me...
Are you suggesting Bomilcar is in the game ? He is not included on your list...

[ My question was really aimed towards "nalivayko" as he had Bomilcar on his list of Carthaginian Leaders. ]

I have just realised that the "first" name specified here is rather odd.


It mostly means that he is just a made-up person in the sense that this leader is not a historical figure. This was to add some variety to the Carthaginian pool of leaders, and to help fill it out. It is also to differentiate him from other men with the same name.

As suspected. Fair enough I guess.

quote:

This leader can be killed, however. He doesn't reappear if he is killed. You CAN run out of leaders in the game.

Again, fair enough - but I think my point still stands. I.E. he should really have just been a named Hanno ( with an initial perhaps - like H. Gisco )...

quote:

P.S. I did the same thing with the leader pool for Syracuse. I had a hard time finding men who actually served or could be imagined that they would have served as generals if needed when Syracuse was allied with Rome. Hence the leader "Genericos" is not a historical person and that usage is kind of a joke. But I needed a fourth leader to fill out the pool for pro-Roman leaders in Syracuse.

Noted.

Well, it's been so long that I forgot about Bomilcar. I included some resources to allow for a general named Bomilcar. But I changed my mind and didn't add him to the game's logic. So, you are right, there is no leader in the game named Bomilcar.

Sorry to cause confusion. It's been a while since I have played 'Hannibal'.
