Ok, so it would be a tough choice between them and the Aztecs as my favorite.  Double the horsies is SOOO tempting.

No, I didn't go through those two trees.  I've never been able to really read the tech trees, just not how my brain processes the info.

Thanks, Nik.  -I was wearing shoes and getting bled at the doctor's office at time for this to release, in my own defense, but you win this time. ;)

Just looks like a rather random name than anything meaningful. 

VERY few games capture mercenaries well, though.

I guess we're not supposed to notice the kurgan doesn't look like a kurgan?

...I guess that could be a burial mound under the monument.  I see a tombish entrance...

But Cromlechs (the what appears to be a passage tomb underneath) are more suited to western Europe, and Menhir (standing stone) especially. 

I could get behind the Cromlech portion (typically smaller brickwork in a kurgan, but whatever), and forgive the rings of stones (mostly up into Russia the ones that had that, though others had brick walls), but that megalithic stone on top is either so out of place as to be jarring or I need to read up a lot more on tombs of the steppes.

Is it possible that it was ever common practice to pull down the markers of buried enemies, I wonder?

Sky farms are fantastically beautiful, with their kilometer long networks of glass framed in grids of metal, and the sunlight shining through jungles of vegetation inside. When one of them catches the light, you can see the refracted beauty for miles; they are life-giving stars on a desolate planet...gardens on the wing.
~Lady Deidre Skye ‘Planet Dreams’
