So I decided to create a thread for people to post challenges to other users. If you have any ideas you think would be cool, either just because of its historical place or it just seems fun, post them here! Also post when you complete a challenge, with a pic if you like. Only a few rules. First, only reasonable challenges. I don't want people trying to get a space race victory by 1000. It's not going to happen, so don't clutter the board up. Second, you can post challenges for any version of RFC (RFC, RAND, or Europe). Third, feel free to use mods to the original RFC so long as a. you post that you're using a mod and b. don't use mods that make the challenge unreasonably easily. So if you suck at stability feel free to use a mod to stability so long as you post it. But if a challenge calls for, say, a UHV by a certain date don't mod your game so you start with the UHV. That's just stupid. Fourth, I'd prefer that all challenges be intended for Monarch, but I'm not going to make it a rule as much as a suggestion. All I ask is that if a challenge is intended for a different level you include what level it's intended for. Now I post the first challenge! Below are maps of different caliphates. Spread Islam to all civilizations occupying the regions in the maps by the date specified. All challenges can be attempted as the Arabs, and the last one can be attempted by the Ottomans. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Rashidun654wVassal.png Rashidun Caliphate, establish by 654 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Umayyad750ADloc.png Umayyad Caliphate, establish by 750 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Abbasids850.png Abbasid Caliphate, establish by 850 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:CordobanCaliphate1000.png Caliphate of Cordoba, establish by 1000 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Almohads1200.png Almohads Dynasty, establish by 1200 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:OttomanEmpireIn1683.png Ottoman Caliphate, establish by 1683 So now either conquer these challenges, post your own, or both!
