    BOTM 181: Julius the Peaceful, Noble - First Spoiler - 1AD



    Use this thread to tell us what happened in your game, up to 1AD How did you find the map? Did you figure out in what manner the Goddess Venus sought to prevent you going to war? Did it work or did you start attacking AIs anyway? :sniper:

    Question: I am already beyond 1AD. Can I post something about the early game here? Should I use the hidden spoilers?

    Hi Tobiyogi, you can post about anything that happened up to 1 AD in your game. When you've played past 1 AD it can be difficult to remember what happened when, so just try to stick to discussion of the early game.

    Alright. Just wanted to state that the barbarians behave a bit unusually. I follow the challenger save that is supposed to be deity. Maybe the barbs are on "noble" mode because they gave me A LOT of time before entering my territory. Maybe only at 1500 BC. On the other hand, there are many barb galleys around, but that's normal because there are several little islands and I was focusing on REXing and not on boat building.

    Assumed it might be an island start. Why doesn't good Venus trust us to leave in peace with our neighbors and not confining us to a lonely island.

    Lack of early metal would be an issue if we had any one to bonk over the head with.

    on another note, this is my first GOTM ever

    Tried out the Deity Challenger save.

    The goddess Venus gave no metal!
    I want to war badly, but barb galleys keep messing with me.
    Will get my hands on Iron around the same time as Elepult.

    It is a clever map setup. :)
    Got Philosophy and will have Currency in 2 turns.

    Maybe, because the good Venus has access to the archives from previous games, so she knows just how untrustworthy you lot always are :nono: :lol:
