just read through the posts.

someone had mentioned a racehorse right at the beginning of the whole egg hunt. not sure who it was, too lazy to go back and find it.

anyways, that guy should get some credit, he was the closest.

Well, I got admiral Parmenion and admiral Agemenmon(sp?) in my Greek campagne... Will try to upload screen when I get home from work tonight. Will it be of any interest?

Yup, I found the reference just 1 page back:

It's a text file too, but out in the open. Maybe there's a general named after a famous racehorse?

I agree. Cap'n Fishpants should have said RS65 was on the mark.

to you cap'n!

Hello, there was a mispelling in the greek cities building description. When you goto any settlement, and click on the the button that brings up the buildings tree, scroll down to the four temples, and look at the last temple (pantheon), one of them is spelt incorrectly as pentheon.

Sorry, that was a mistake, I just checked, it's not the Greek Cities, it's Macedon, the pantheion dedicated to Zeus says pentheion.

Bless you for relinquishing my agony...

how come that one guy didn't get credit for being the closest to it?

(as a side note...how in the heck is anyone born after 1985 going to know something like this? Seems like the designers are all older than 21 as a safe guess)

Hi =)
I've found 2 possible easter eggs.

First : http://img330.imageshack.us/img330/7851/lesbianrebels2nk5.png

Second :
http://i143.photobucket.com/albums/r151/thekid951/AriovustusiseenGeneralgeenSpion.png

Now, you'll wonder what's so weird about this second one. Well, I'm in my third year of Latin and we were translating a Latin text to Dutch. In this text, A German General named ARIOVISTUS was messing with some Gauls, and Juluis Caesar helped the Gauls and drove Ariovistus back (to put it shortly)
So, what's wrong? What's the possible easter egg? Well, Ariovistus was a German GENERAL, not a SPY, like in the picture. Secondly, this Ariovistus lived in 270 BC,but in reality he lived later, which we know because he messed with Caesar, who was born in 100 BC and died in 44BC.

THe first isn't- lesbians were from the island of lesbos, so it's historically accurate. It's popped up about 5 times in the thread

The second I'm not sure.

I think there might have been a German general called Ariovistus during the time of Caesar.

Yep, there was. Linky Linky!

Arovistus was a German name, so it is probobly one of the names put in as a possible agent/general name. It just happened to be and agent. I'm sure there was more than one single human being in the world named Arovistus, there was just only one famous one.

I really don't believe that the single known famous German General, who is the only famous German person named Ariovistus in the whole history books, is by coincedence the first spy of the game at German side.

You never said it was the first spy... I assumed it was a spy trained at a city.

Another thing (I dont know if its been mentioned before but anyway):

The Pontic leader at the beginning of the game is called Mithridates while his son is called Pharnacas.

However, in reality the 'real' Mithridates and his son Pharnaces did exist but like 170 years later. Sulla fought Mithridates and Pharnaces got beaten by Caesar.

Another funny thing I encountered though it wasnt in RTW but in M2TW: A heretic called Moses LOL.

These aren't easter eggs, it is simply the name being used. Unless, of course, it was Mithridites VI.

It isn't like they are going to call them Eastern Leader 1 Eastern Leader 2.

Well, but the possibility of having a king Mithridates and his son Pharnaces is very unlikely to happen often.

If only one of them would be called what they are I wouldnt care. But father and son with this names as Pontic rulers?

I guess CA just wanted to use a famous name for a Pontic king.
