I haven't counted them, but I'd guess that there are at least a few hundred thousand possible advisor names. I supposed that you'll eventually run across some repeats...Arilou said:I *like* that. It adds an extra layer of strategy, and more importantly, historical immersion.
But that's not that important: I'm not arguing that Voltaire will be a skill 12 philospher or whatever every time he appears, just wondering if the names or portraits will be used at all.
An entire universe full of generic advisors seem boring to me. Especially as no matter how large your database of names are you'll run out of them sooner or later.
The portraits aren't of the specific person, they're a "type" portrait (i.e. the same "artist" portrait is used for all artists).
