    INTRODUCTION
    This PBEM is intented to start almost from scratch but a bit different than usual, with the human capital being super-cities, with 4 pre-start incorporated Wonders and generous food supply nearby.
    Despite the game speed being normal the intial era should go by pretty fast due to the super-capitals that humans will have.

    GAME SETTINGS
    Era=ERA_ANCIENT
    Speed=GAMESPEED_NORMAL
    Calendar=CALENDAR_YEARS
    Options= surprise! (more or less)

    GAME STARTUP
    - Random (but hopefully one that looks different from the "usual" map)
    - Some Preplaced cities, buildings and units will be already in the game
    - Human players start with 4 National Wonders in their Capital


    VICTORY CONDITIONS
    Conquest, Domination, Space Race, Cultural, Diplomatic

    NATIONS & PLAYERS
    0: Celts - Ghandi - Sinimusta => WINNER
    3: Spain - Bismarck - Ruff
    4: Native Americans - Suryavarman - Knoedel
    5: China - Roosevelt - Hercules
    AI: 4
    Civ's were choosen but the leaders were selected in a random way.

    HOUSERULES
    - The cities that are Holycities or Corporation HeadQuarters can not be razed. All other cities can be razed.
    - Each human can only fire ONE nuclear weapon.
    - The spying action "Influence Civic" can only be used against an opponent that you have more spying points on him than him on you.
    - Actions made by players that are against fair play are not allowed. This is not an entirely objective rule but an example of it can be any type of action that is only for denial purposes without any value for the own Civ.

    PLAYING RULES
    Players should make their best to play their turns within 48h (exceptions will be exceptions)

    To delay research of modern units a bit more. Can change it if players so wish it.

    The crazy map is made and waiting for curious players...

    The start is with ONE city for each, with some pre-placed buildings. The capital will have for sure more than 2 Minor Wonders already pre-built.

    Also there will be some units (with "different" promotions) right from the start.

    The map itself will be different (not Earth, Pangea, islands or the more typical maps) and resources will be carefully placed.

    Knoedel, are you in?

    If you join I’ll add up the following rule:
    The spying action ‘Influence Civic’ can only be used against an opponent that you have more spying points on him than him on you.

    Anybody else wants in?

    I guess that you could start with 3 players…

    I'll add one more thing: you can choose any 2 Minor Wonders that you want in your capital!:yup:

    I do have one doubt though: which speed? Normal? Fast?

    What wonders do you mean by minor wonders? National wonders? Or some world wonders not considered too strong?

    Ah, yes... I think that in Civ III they were called "Minor Wonders"... so I kept calling them that... It is the first time that I realize that they have changed their name! :eek:

    No, not really... but I can tell that it is a coastal city with (give or take) 50% of water...

    It seems that we have 2.5 players...

    Playing with 4 would be ideal... but I guess you can play with 3.

    If Knoedel wants in, we can do like this: I can play with the 4th Civ for a while. If after 10 (?)turns we have a candidate for it excellent. If not... I will retire. Seems ok?

    Alright, fine, I'm in, but can we turn on city flipping please? Culture is already way underpowered in this game, I really don't see the appeal in making it even more useless.

    I'll have Native America please.

    Sorry guys, when I was down 1 game a few weeks ago I'm now up 2 replacement games and those are mature, taking on this one with so few players means I'll get my turn to often, I know that sounds backwards but to commit to a game is 100% and I just don't have 100% anymore:(

    Then I guess we do not have a quorum for this game.

    The file is ready. If, at some later stage, there are enough interested people it's quite easy to start it.

    This forum seems to be dying. Not a single person replied to my own thread I made a few weeks ago for an ice age game.
