"Epic Goals: Play it out, no retirements, no matter how bleak things may appear." This map was originally used in the Realm's Beyond Epic 4 Tournament, :http://realmsbeyond.net/civ/c4tourney/epic4.html. The only win condition is domination. This might be an exceptional short game, as it is my first deity attempt and that I am a better builder than a warmonger. I read a shadow report several years ago but don't remember any details except that the start could be exceptionally difficult. In any case with an update to bts (thanks sooooo) there are going to be differences. Here's the start: Raging Barbarians are on. I am thinking of settling on the gold plains hill, especially if I discover a resource in the northeast. My first build will be a warrior.
