    This is a story, my second attempt after my first one stagnated
    Leader: Gandhi
    Civ: Warlords 2.13
    Level: noble
    Map: Continents huge, temperate, low sea level
    Let the games begin......




    4000BC
    (introductions)
    Narrator: We have the great glorious peaceful Gandhi, his domestic Adviser Haussman, his Military Advisor George W. Bush, his Foreign advisor Amby, his cultural Advisor Michelangelo, economic and scientific advisor Stephen D. lewitt.......
    Gandhi (interrupting): i am a busy man and at the moment, all I can say is that we start our story at the folllowing location...

    Here we settle Delhi on the Spot and we shall build a settler and research meditation....
    Lewitt: The settling will wreck our economy!!!
    Gandhi: Shut up! i am the boss
    Michelangelo: (in an undertone) I heard he was a humble, peaceful guy
    Gandhi: i heard you there!! This reincarnation of mine is angry and arrogant. So there.
    Michelangelo: I think i'd better shut up (does so)

    Lewitt: We have founded Buddhism in Delhi and Also, our scout received gold and 4 technologies from huts - wheel, agriculture, pottery, and writing
    Gandhi: 4 technologies? That is soooo amazing, leave me alone for a while as i contemplate my good fate. Oh, and continue by researching Priesthood for the oracle
    (leaves in a frenzy, can be heard singing outside)
    Haussman (taps his head): he is... well I wont say anything in case he hears me

    Narrator: And so Gandhi, makes his noble civilization (pun not intended) research monarchy after priesthood.
    Lewitt: but Oh honourable master, it will take us a long time!
    Gandhi: Doesn't matter, our second city will ease that and if we build the oracle, I want Fuedalism as the free tech.




    3200BC - the settler finishes training
    Haussman: Sire, the 4 brave souls, who will venture out into the dark hinterland for the good of our civilization our awaiting your orders.
    Gandhi: HUH?
    Bush: i guess he means ..a settler?
    Gandhi: i knew that, send them west-southwest of us on tat coastal tile near the marble
    Lewitt: In other news we received 2 more technologies Hunting and Archery
    Gandhi(stunned): this is amazing news, i can't believe my good luck!!!! 1 technology is rare but a grand total of 7!!!
    Lewitt: By this pursuit we have also received a total of 400 gold
    Gandhi: that is a lot of gold, is there nobody else on the continent or what? We must have reached the limit of the huts we can get.

    3040BC Bombay is founded

    Gandhi: Start building a worker here, and i think that we should start using slaves
    Michelangelo: But you are a peaceful guy who respects everybody
    Gandhi: Didn't I tell you something about my new reincarnation? Get out or I shall copy the great Snaaty!!

    Bush (in an undertone): Who's Snaaty?
    Haussmann(whispering): I don't know. All I do know is that he had a penchant for turning people to stone....

    Gandhi: Ahh!! I'll go by my previous avatar, I'll take peace

    Good story so far.
    By the way, instead of posting a link to your story everwhere, why not just put a link to it in your signature?

    2080BC: Delhi has a new stonecircle
    Michaelangelo: And sire, in a display of amazing strength and power of the Indian culture, we have built STONEHENGE in Delhi
    Ganhdi: I wonder why i asked you to build this stupid stone circle in Delhi... doesn't seem tos ereve any purpose
    Michealangelo(spluttering) But you were a wonder-monger
    Gandhi: that's only for wonders of some use
    Michaelangelo: it does center the world map and give us a free monument in each city
    Gandhi: That's more like it. Now build me a library in Delhi.


    2040BC:
    Lewitt: we discovered monarchy and can now call youa king
    Gandhi: fine then, adopt that civic and now I am your supreme ruler. Power, riches, glory all are mine heeeheeheehee
    Bush: He's crazier than me
    Gandhi: Shut up or I'll replace you with that guy.. Obama


    1840:
    Bush: And we just trained 3 men in a loincloth with wooden clubs in hand in Bombay. The message that popped up said that they are the backbone of our army
    Gandhi: What message?
    Bush: Well, it popped up in the air, was coloured parchment colour and had black writing on it...

    There is something I have to admit, as you have obviously noticed, my writing style has been inspired for you so forgive me for copying it. But hey, imitation is the best form of flattery

    Gandhi: I had a dream today. I was ordered to build a Settler in Delhi
    Lewitt: But sire, that will wreck our economy!
    Gandhi: Do you mean that i am poor at oneirology?
    Lewitt: Nothing like that but.
    Gandhi: Good, then get started


    1440BC:
    Lewitt: We have researched something called Iron Working as a result of which we have been able to see a grey silver metal we could not see earlier.
    Gandhi: I'll put you up with my optometrist.
    Michaelangelo: We have also built the oracle and taken as a free technology- FEUDALISM. So now we can easily build longbows
    Gandhi: hah, longbows so early, I love this!
    Lewitt: Then at least can we now start fishing?
    Gandhi: Sure, we need it for Bombay
    Lewit(under his breath): I'm glad he realises it.
    Gandhi: I heard you, I also realise that you are stupid, do i have to fire you?
    Lewitt: no, it's the meltdown, I wont find another job
    Gandhi: then shaddup!!!
