    In this game, you will rule over the Koreans, who are Commercial and Scientific and start the game with the knowledge of Alphabet and Bronze Working. This is an Emperor level game with no sponsored victory condition. The Korean unique unit is the hwacha, a cannon with stronger bombardment and with lethal bombardment, plus the ability to promote and even create MGLs*!

    This is your starting position:



    i added the logical worker move so to add to the pre-game discussion. this move is *not* made in the starting save of the actual game.

    Scope of the Game

    Map size: standard
    Map topology: continents
    Rivals: 7 pre-selected
    Barbarians: raging
    Required victory condition: None

    Since we are living in times of a coronavirus hysteria, a fitting special feature of the game is activated!

    *A tip, in case you want to use the hwacha like that: rename each unit to a different name - and add the elite info to the respective name when promoted! For this purpose it also makes sense to build hwachas from towns with barracks.

    The game is released on April 1, 2020.
    Submissions are due by June 30, 2020.

    PLEASE NOTE THE DATE!

    A history of Korea up to about the middle ages as dictated by our glorious leader:

    3400 B.C.
    Tar Valon is sacked by the pugnacious barbarians.

    2950 B.C. I settle Blue Ajah and build a Curragh to establish contacts.

    825 B.C. I have made contacts and traded knowledge extensively. Babylon declares war, but the conflict is brief and I lose no combatants.

    170 B.C. 24 ! Parthian horsemen attack Yellow Ajah. The very last one breaches the walls and sacks the town. The Celts declare war, but again the issue is settled after one minor battle.

    So continues the epic tragedy of the Korean people:

    900 A.D.
    Global war erupts. Byzantium invades my lands and the Celts and Persia join in declaring war. I get Rome to join me in military alliance and their legionaires swarm to my defense. Noble Romans! This is a serious invasion.

    980 A.D. Hordes of Byzantines die on my land beneath Roman swords. Even the Babylonians join in defense after I gave them a tech for military alliance. No serious damage is done and all the enemies pay ME a small fee for peace.

    1250 A.D. Babylon is under attack from France and the Celts; they are on the ropes. I opportunistically join in the attack and snag the northern lands on my border up to the mountain range. At least I get some gems out of it.
