The Vietnamese are back! This time they'll rule the world under the lead of Lê Lợi aka Lê Thái Tổ a typical national hero. He rebelled against the Chinese Ming dynasty, who have taken over Việt Nam for about twenty years, effectively put an end to that brief period of northern domination, and established a new Vietnamese dynasty known as the Hậu Lê. As promised from the last adventure, now we'll face a higher level of difficulty Prince. Take a look at the settings: Yes, the familiar map of Pangaea, and the familiar size of Standard. Those indicate that the Vietnamese had extended their knowledge to pretty far away kingdoms, but were still not able to reach across the ocean yet. The speed is adjusted to Epic to give the feelings of something a little more, well, epic. But there're some twists in the options of climate, sea level and shoreline. Before setting up the match, I've agreed with myself that the Vietnamese will be allowed a maximum of 2 map rolls. Both of them will be saved so we can choose the best and most factual start. After getting one save of random climate low sea random shoreline set, I thought, ok next time I should choose the default, and the second save is of temperate medium natural ones. These three are the only differences between the two starts. As always, the victory conditions are all enabled. Ancient era do I need to mention that? And this time no additional options are selected. In fact it resembles the situation at the time: the barbarians are no longer everywhere, and it's the 14th - 15th century! So tech trading was of course available between civilizations. Oh, about the opponents: there're ten AIs, all random chosen. Will be somewhat crowded then... So, are you ready? Let's go!
