    Hurrah! And so, the world prospered for 1000 millenia, always protected by the hoplites.

    It all depends on which Civ I am.
    Really great conquest.


    But, now what happens to this thread? I guess a new game could be started and we would have this gripping story all over again. :mischief: Mind you, a different location, civ, etc. could be chosen.

    That is, if Quint is up to it. I'm sure this has been exhausting...

    Huzzah!

    Can't say that I have something really important to say... but great job... Darn it! I owe somebody, I think Tasslehoff, 5 Virtual USD!!! Why did I think it would take you 'till 2037 AD???

    Oh well... So, anybody up for finding a mod for a space map and then continuing the conquest to the stars? (I know I'm not!)

    Then, would this be Conquest of the Worlds?

    Yep, you were off by about 20 years.

    But, I must agree with what everyone else said, really good story, Quint! It had some really gripping moments.

    So, does that mean that Nader will actually win an election!:eek: Or, does it mean that we're all serfs of Alexander, I mean, Quintillus.

    I'm going to have to mod my Conquests file so Alexander is now Quintillus... Yeah, a cheep rip-off of Choxorn, but it's only fitting now that this saga is at an end...

    Speaking of sagas...

    Does this mean that you're going to go back and do episode I: the rise of Quint? and detail your rise to power in Greece?

    So what? It doesn't really matter much... I'm just going to make that change tonight...

    So, Quint, what do you want your title to be?
