So, we have the keshiks that produces gold while attacking. I thought on a twist of this, for another UU.
What if there is an UU that can steal resources from the enemy? This could work in one of these two possible ways:
When they kill a villager, if that villager was carrying resources, those resources go to the player of the UU. This is cool, although it is like a different way to produce resources rather than stealing. On the other hand it is not oppressive, because the player of the dead villager doesn’t lose anything extra (the resources are lost when a villager dies anyway).
When this UU attacks a villager, the villager loses part of the resources that are carrying and those resources go to the player of the UU. The unit wouldn’t be very strong. The villager wouldnt die, but the resources are gone, so it is useful for raid. This would work for trade carts also, or for fishing ships if the unit is a ship.
The other option is to steal resources when attacking buildings, or just town centers, but that could be veeery oppressive.
What do you think? It could be a bandit, a pirate…
