I got the game bundled with Force Commander in '99. That game is awesome, though i don't play it much anymore, mostly because I end up not being able to move from my computer for several hours. I always play as empire though. btw, i didn't write that FAQ. =p
Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.
