What I don't like

Post by Brummbär » Sat Aug 21, 2021 2:39 pm

After some months now, I have lastly found the one point in the rules which I don't like:
couldn't you have named them "Ordinary Horse"? Who wants to have "Bad" troops in his army? ;) :lol: :lol:

Quality Challenged Cavalry was discussed, but in the end Bad Horse won out.

We find it grows on you, especially when they are some how winning and can temporarily be called "Badass Horse"

As Rod says, we considered a lot of different names. In the end simplicity and clarity won out over political correctness and trying to avoid offense against individual troop types that might well have objected to the nomenclature. "Mediocre Horse" might be more accurate, but "Bad Horse" is three syllables shorter.

And then there is the song from Doctor Horrible's Singalong Blog: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VNhhz1yYk2U

...for me bad horse is a useful troop type to represent nobles but not for the battleline and it is cheaper...
