One of the goals of this project is to create a project that students and anyone still learning to program can call their own. This is a learning excersize, but it will be progressing. Eventually the level of knowledge involved for this project will exceed simple learning of c++ but that will take time and even than novice programers can still possibly find something to do with this project.
Legion is meant to be a Turn-based Military Strategy Game. It is based off a board game designed and created by Erik Metzler, as a simply and cheap game to play.
The end plan is to create a computer game, based on the original board game "Legion", but more sophisticated, but still with the goal of being cheap and easy to play. As it is open source tech, I'de say we got the cheap part down already.
