Thanks guys! This one was inspired by the amazingly weak and slow PEASANT unit from an old video game called "Heroes of Might & Magic". If you've played this, you'll know what I mean. ;)

Peasant mob? Hey, that only counts as one!

Yeah... but it looks better on the resume if you count them individually. :p

The original pawns. The next time you capture one, it might help to think of it as a hundred peasants.

Just have to put some poo on it...

Reminds me of the translation of an ancient Egyptian medical papyrus scroll...

"Wisdom of the Ancients". Every time I hear that term used, I think of the Egyptian eye remedy.

Main ingredient?

Scribe's dung...

Apparently the ancient Egyptians used some pretty gross remedies for certain illnesses. The idea was to drive away the demons that were causing the illness with some stuff that was even nastier than them.

Who knew that the first people to get shit-faced were looking for a cure?

"Little" brother? ^_^

Well, using 'peasant' armies was how the Huns managed to get so far into Western Europe: use the surviving populations of the lands you conquer as vanguard/arrow-magnets and have your real forces come up fresh

"Little Brother" could be taken literally, or honorifically

As an avid player of Mount & Blade, I can verify that that's about what peasant levies are like.
