25 veteran elite soldiers
Give them each a crossbow.
Give them each one weapon and a shield.
Give them each a two-handed weapon or one weapon for each hand.
One that does what it is supposed to do with few extras. Reliable. Does what it is meant to, but little more.
One that has many features, and can do a multitude of jobs if used correctly. Can do many things, but requires calibration / careful use each time.
A little of both. Does several things, but is not too complicated.
The military command center. "Cut off the head of the snake and the body will die."
The main army barracks. "An army without soldiers is no army at all."
The tank bay. Destroy their most powerful weapons and our tanks will be unstoppable.
The supply depot. The most important part of an army is the support system behind it.
Summon the biggest creature
Summon a swarm of little creatures
Stop your opponent from summoning anything

Moderate infantry, Many heavy tanks and great support for them, synergy focused, denial aspects, durable

Give each cash based on your estimate of what they will need. Some may not have enough, some may have too much, but there is no chance of spending more than you have.
Give each a debit card linked to the same account with all the money in it. Each buys their own item with money form the same pool. Those who spend less, leave more available for those who spend more. There is a chance that your estimates of costs were too low, and your account will be overdrafted.
Both sound equally good/bad.
The ability to plan for contingencies and always remain one step ahead of your opponent.
The ability to think on your feet and adapt to a constantly changing battlefield.
Both are equally necessary.
A group of giant bloodthirsty beasts.
A group of giant steam-powered robots.
Both sound awesome.
It is best to be proficient in all skills, even if you master none.
It is best to excel at several skills and at least dabble in most others.

I'd prefer one of the larger core factions.
