Quote from: Paradox Interactive Forum Newsletter August 2012
At Paradox Development Studios Johan Andersson, studio manager, had his birthday this week!

Just for him*, we're announcing a brand new Europa Universalis game; one that brings EU's legendary scope into the Napoleonic Wars, that glorious slice of European history that we like to think of as a geopolitcal barfight. Players will take control of a nation of their choice, dispatch armies and envoys, raid supply lines, form coalitions and get with the times, already. Because if they don't, that maddeningly clever Corsican is going to make fools of every single one of them.

Anyway, a comment tonight on HIEs in general. 

During some phase of a given HIE story, ponies will invariably comment on how a human looks like a giant, hairless monkey.  You can suppose that's flattering or unflattering depending on how you take being called a big monkey...

But has anyone every really thought of just what it means to be compared to an arborial mammal like a moneky?  I mean, beyond just appearances.  What's a human capable of?

Examine this video and ask yourself how pony populations in stories would react to a creature that's as at home on the ground on two legs, as it is off the ground on any number of its four appendages in an all out, MAD scramble in which the environment is little more than a platform game to them.

What is a human? 
It's a creature with incredible physical control and fluid balance beyond anything an Earth Pony or Unicorn could think possible without wings.

Honestly, if they saw that parkour vid the first thought most ponies would have is "predator". Seriously. Watch that video with the eyes of a prey species. Imagine how you'd feel if this strange creature suddenly came charging across obstacles you couldn't even hope to pass, leaped in the air and then bounced of the wall behind you.

The capability to move in unexpected ways is a big fear generator. Even a pegasus would feel threatened by a creature that could appear to leap so high from out of nowhere and change direction so unpredictably. They'd probably also interpret a lot of that motion as misdirection strategies designed to confuse prey. Sure, I couldn't do it. Most humans can't do it, but we all have the potential to transform from this ungainly biped into a spring-loaded wall-climbing murder machine

My view on humans has now been positively modified. Makes me wanna dig out them PK skills a bit myself...
