Or you could post it here using the code tab like was mentioned by Jubal?

Well, I could, but this enables everyone to edit it at the same time. If you want to post other quotes here which can be added in, fine by me.
The other advantage is that code-tags swiftly become unreadable when the text gets really long...

https://github.com/joek295/cambridge-tw for those interested.

Added a couple of quotes, hope that's alright!

GitHub is definitely a good idea for unit descriptions etc.

I don't think so! I believe that the person with the appropriate privileges has to give any changes the go-ahead before they're made canon. It should be alright.

That would make sense. That's what I thought but I'm something of a technophobe (as in I'm enthusiatic but don't trust myself with coding)

Yeah, I think Joe has to agree to commits since it's his document initially.

Consider my sword pledged.

Not much of a coder but happy to write unit and building descriptions/proofread/learn how to do the code

Also happy to add to general debates over which unit is which subject and buildings etc etc

Yeah, for those of you not familiar with the github model, you can make changes on 'your' version of the document, and then submit pull requests to the master branch. Then I check them out, diff them, and if they look good, pull them into the master branch.

I don't mind starting to change all the names. Shall we use the names of current fellows or just names that sounds like they could be fellows?

OK, so the names files are three, and they are thus (just sections of each file posted so you can get the hang of the syntax):

Names (this file basically gives the screen values of the internal names, the INTERNAL names are in brackets)
Code: [Select]
{Amulius} Amulius
{Augustus} Augustus
{Aulus} Aulus
{Caius} Caius
{Cassius} Cassius
{Cnaeus} Cnaeus
{Cornelius} Cornelius
{Decius} Decius
{Flavius} Flavius
{Gaius} Gaius
{Galerius} Galerius
{Gnaeus} Gnaeus
{Julianus} Julianus
{Kaeso} Kaeso
{Lentulus} Lentulus
{Luca} Luca
{Lucius} Lucius
{Manius} Manius
{Marcus} Marcus
{Nero} Nero
{Numerius} Numerius
{Oppius} Oppius
{Placus} Placus
{Publius} Publius
{Quintis} Quintis
{Quintus} Quintus
{Secundus} Secundus
{Servius} Servius
{Sextus} Sextus
{Sextius} Sextius
{Spurius} Spurius
{Tertius} Tertius
And so on.

Names lookup (This lists all the internal name values)
Code: [Select]
Amulius
Augustus
Aulus
Caius
Cassius
Cnaeus
Cornelius
Decius
Flavius
Gaius
Galerius
Gnaeus
Julianus
Kaeso
Lentulus
Luca
Lucius
Manius
Marcus
Nero
Numerius
Oppius
Placus
Publius
Quintis
Quintus
Secundus
Servius
Sextus
Sextius
Spurius
Tertius

Names descr (This gives particular names to particular factions, using the INTERNAL names. Each faction has an entry like this.)
Code: [Select]
faction: romans_julii

characters
Caspian
Florian
Rilian
Tirian
Octesian
Glozelle
Sopespian
Miraz
Bern
Rhoop
Mavramorn
Revilian
Argoz
Restimar
Alamar
Fulinar
Revilamar
Bernimorn
Suraz
Bernaz
Mirilan
Drinian

surnames
Acilius
Aelius
Aemilius
Afranius
Agricola
Albinus
Alfenius
Alienus
Ammianus
Ammonius
Annaeus
Annius

women
Prunaprismia
Julinia
Sara
Ourlice
Caspina
Renia
Qualmine
Sarapphine

The faction internal names are kept from RTW (I think they're changeable, but it would take forever and confer no benefit).

So the mapping is thus (the below are the correct/exact internal names):
thrace => The Entente
romans_julii => Sainsbury's Pact
romans_scipii => The Backs Alliance
romans_brutii => The Western Treaty
macedon => The Republic
greek_cities => The Hill Confederacy

There's no real rhyme or reason to this and I might shift things round later if we get to a stage where we want to take advantage of culture differences in city plans etc, but I'll take responsibility for crossing that rubicon as/when we get there.
The duke, the wanderer, the philosopher, the mariner, the warrior, the strategist, the storyteller, the wizard, the wayfarer...

I've pushed a few more quotes to the quotefile repo. We now have about 40...
