I randomed this deity Sally map, and I've been a bit obsessed with it the last few days. I've played into the early AD's twice now with not so great results. I know some people here like the trickier kind of starts/maps, so I figured I'd share this one and maybe learn a thing or two from the pro's on how to approach this better. Normal settings, nhne, fractal normal size. The start: Spoiler Turn 0 : My thoughts on the start: The stone PH is very appealing, but it risks killing 4 tiles with possible seafood. We could move warrior NE, and if there's no seafood climb the PH with the settler.. Doing that reveals this: Spoiler After moving : Can't tell if there's any more food in our BFC, but with three green unforested tiles it seems like the chance is good. At a minimum though we see a green hill 2S1E of the settler, so we could potentially do something like hunting->mining, settler at size 2, then go for fishing and try to get some early commerce with our second city. Buffy save attached. Any thoughts or ideas are very much appreciated!
