WELCOME TO THE BROKEN STAR PBEM! For this PBEM we will use the Broken Star MOD, that shipped with the "Beyond the Sword" expansion to the game. This MOD is a scenario only game, in this scenario Russia has collapsed and most of the country is in the hands of the rebels. Each player starts out with one city, which is the core of their Military District. The rebels are non-playable and are always at war with you. There is also the Coalition force which is in Russia for the sole purpose of protecting the nuclear weapon. This game has a unique victory called "Arsenal Victory", which you win by holding four armed nukes. (See Below) This is an intense MOD that is nearly impossible to win in singleplayer, I think however with all of the military districts played by humans, this should be both possible and fun to play as well. SETTINGS: Difficulty: Noble Normal Speed No City Razing Aggressive AI The last two options are on by default in this MOD. (I'm open to suggestions for other settings.) VICTORY CONDITIONS: Time Conquest Domination Arsenal (Unique to this MOD) PLAYERS: 1. North Caucasus Military District - Tigranes 2. Moscow Military District - methinkso - Imp. Knoedel 3. Northern Military District - Norwood 4. Volga Military District - ruff_hi Player Eliminated 5. Urals Military District - Michkov 6. Siberian Military District - Alvarez - psza 7. Trans-Baikali Milltary District - Phylhom 8. Far East Military District - Hercules90 HOUSE RULES: *UPDATED* 1.) You must infiltrate a Military District with a Great Spy before you may utilize the change civics mechanic for that District. 2.) No replaying turns, or using other exploits. (I'm also open to house rule suggestions.) A WORD ABOUT STRATEGY: In this game the Rebels start out with most of Russia, it is important to take them down early. After about turn 14, the rebels will receive free random units to attack you. Nukes in this MOD are very powerful, and will wipe any city they hit entirely off the map. If you succeed in capturing a nuke, the coalition force will attack you, otherwise they will remain neutral. There are only 8 nukes in this game, you cannot build nukes at all. I highly recommend trying this MOD out for yourself. THE GAME HAS STARTED!
