    River crossing always ends a unit turn, unless there's a bridge made. Now we're going to punish the Arabs who crossed early.



    Our Hoplite is more than a match for their regular Spearman. However, their swordsman survived the encounter. Albeit, with heavy casualties.



    During the enemy's turn, their catapult decimated one of our hoplite. Barely alive, he has no where to hide. The surviving enemy swordsman retreated across the river to regroup.



    A hoplite and newly arrived cavalry will retake the burning ruins of Berlin, while the near death Hoplite will make a final suicide charge against the Arab catapult across the river.



    He was successful. Glory to the Spartans!



    He will perish gloriously in the following night, cut off from his friends across the river, surrounded from all sides by the unwashed masses. Sparta lost another son.

    The Cavalry raised the Spartan flag above Berlin once more and the defense of Berlin resumes.

    The Chariot Archer never stood a chance, but the pikemen posed a slight challenge. A little softening fire from the city's bombardment, and flanking from the first cavalry, and the second one can rush in to take it out with slight damage.

    CHARGE!



    Two down. Dozens to go.



    Meanwhile up north, Ivan the Terrible takes the offensive to Japan.



    St. Petersburg had to deal with barbarian camp. A hoplite was pulled from the front to deal with this threat.



    While Munich fends off a city state army allied with Arabia.



    Nary an end in sight.



    Very, very reckless of me.



    I sacrificed a hoplite for a catapult once more. Another son of Sparta sacrificed for the greater good.




    Cape Town is with us till the bitter end.



    The Barbarian uprising was finally put down in St. Petersburg.
    Where upon victory, the Hoplites charged towards Munich to fend off the city state of Hanoi's army from the west.



    The Emperor of Japan offered us peace in exchange for the two German towns we fought so hard to defend and some rare earth.



    We sent our reply the very next day in true Spartan style.





    You want my cities? Come get them.

    Great thread, and thanks for the cunning strategies at the start. I never would have thought to trade useless open border treaties for gold prior to borders actually being useful.

    "I'm confident on an entertaining Deity play. So off we go. Standard Pangea."

    It's the first thing he posted.

    Ah I missed that..except for the diety bit. I was more curious about game pace..to build so many hopiltes it must be one of the slower settings..

    He mostly made deals selling borders and luxuries to buy the Hoplites versus producing them. I think the gold buying production capabilities in this version of Civ are key to success.

    Very interesting read. It would be pure gold if there's Persia tucked in there somewhere - I'm hoping Darius is the unmet player. :D

    Persia. If it is the umet player then, Ultimate Epic War For Sparta!
    Example: :suicide: is what the enemy will do. You will bask in Glory :trophy:. This will be the result:trouble:.
