    I wouldn't go with normal. I don't think that would last long enough.

    Yeah, I agree with epic. also, we should have the citizens chose our civilization, it would be generally better.

    So should we have a poll for the civilization? or should we just let the computer decide?

    well, that would be a poll. Actually, come to think about it, we can have random as a poll option.

    I've never played the Russians in a Dgame before, I like the RP possibilities.

    Why not be the Romans, and my character's name can be Biggus Dikkus.

    Okay, eww. But, I'm fine with anything. Every civ has their strengths and weaknesses.

    These settings all sound good to me,

    I hope to understand them more eventually after playing since I'm completely new XD

    We were discussing the Russians before and Catherine is a strong leader in advanced difficulty games. I am willing to play with any civ or leader though.

    I like the idea of an Epic game, I agree that Marathon might be too much, when it comes to figuring out orders for military units in wartime, or settlement options early game. That said it is possible for a D.P. to end a session early when a significant event has occurred and he feels that more orders are necessary. However we wouldn't want that to happen too frequently, playing a Marathon game 5 turns at a time would drive a few of us off the deep end.

    I'd prefer a random civ with a selected leader. I think that allows us the fun of something unexpected, while not allowing us to be really screwed over from the start. Any civ is playable, if a decent leader is selected.
