Forestmen! We'd snipe you from the trees!
not if the black falcons snipe you first! the BFs have great archers fairly good cavalry(better than the forestmen have)
better fortresses(you would have to go on offence eventually) superior infantry (if my memory is correct) better seige engines
and most of all better armor, no matter what once you've been cut open you're at a large disadvantage.
however I do aknowledge the forestmen as a threat and therefore would seek to be allied with them.
He who thinks you should look at the box that says "Quaraga" if you want to find out his username (about as useful to you as his real name). he only wants you to look so he can laugh about you looking there because he's a total smart...
