How about gives legion command aura to nearby roman soldiers :) roman soldiers will see the tower and believe they have high defense and higher chance of survival here so fight better near tower's shelter, but in that case i think carry capacity should b 1 with 3 range for aura, (also wagon and siege should b able to garrison else no one will use this tower) does the tower benefit a roman playstyle for players. i m not suggesting high morale only because high morale benefits all other infantry while legion command is already implemented so easier to code

if has higher stats than fortress but no burning then can cost same as fortress (9 or 6 turns depending on ambidextria)

For I watch over this world looking for those worthy to become kings, and on the way get rid of the fakes and rule over the fools

What exactly.
Stats, recruit?


May is better builder(mend) than regular
But since an upgrade is planned and rn there is no much to built I say save it for later

I wud have avoided auras for tower.

Also realistically garrisonning in border towers isn't a gold life. demoralising the cold, no sleeping, enemies.

But if u insist.

The tower should be a bit tall...
btw,isn't the legion commander tech only for legions?

also,yes,garrisons are useful in this tower when there are multiple units,because its more resilient

Just my 2 cents on the builder thing.

Roman Legionnaires were the ones responsible for building military installations during war campaigns. They were soldiers in battle, and workers and architects after the battle. (Caesar's bridge into Germania, and his siege of Alesia are good examples of this. Apologies for any misspellings.)

Most public civil buildings and constructions were handled by slaves, so there wasn't much of a free labour area in Roman society.

I would say Roman Legionnaires get the ability to build the following units: Palasades, watchtower, wooden bridge, and this Roman tower. Maybe the Roman Garrison as well.

I'm afraid I don't have any suggestions for the tower itself, though.

especially wen dromedarii gets implemented, the final weakness of legionary, cavalry would b weakened by camel fear and ineffective against legionary

Alright. Then I suppose that the Roman builder idea either gets scrapped, or a Roman Slave gets put in, which I think we don't need, since we already have the labourer.

Other than that, I don't really have any real suggestions, other than this tower is cool, and I think it should be in.
