Slavery, Civilization and Complaining

Pro slavery sci fi writers are discussed.

I'm playing Civ 4 as native america, and of course, I'm a nitpicker, wondering why braids and buckskin Indians united under Sitting Bull have totem poles as their unique building and dog soldiers as their unique unit.

A white man says this:

well, that's a problem with picking historical leaders as the leaders of a fantasy world/race not based on earth history.

many times, it doesn't make much sense


He does have a point there, but some of the civilizations are based on real empires, such as you have Louis XIV and Napoleon for France and Mana Musa for Mali, and then you have strange mismashes like Native America and the Arabian empire... It just bugs me, even though the Zulu, the Koreans and the Germans all ganged up on me- Japan to try to annihilate me, at least we all seemed to be coherent countries...

That bugs me too! And they have the Aztec and the Maya, so you would think they could have just picked a north american tribe/nation and gone with it!

Yea, they should pick whether they are having random fake cultures or real ones. Having both in one game makes no sense.
