As I said in the main thread, I was going for an ICS style landing. The lack of purple and also the smallish map have pretty much put a halt to my plans in the 200-300ad mark. But, I have to say I was definately more advanced at 1ad than I normally would have been. I'll post stats at that time if anyone wants to see them. I doubt I'll have time to finish, If I did I'd need to take out the Romans and maybe the Aztecs to get a decent number of cities. Nice touch with the luxury rate, Magic. It's been a while since we've had a curve ball like that. Reminds me of the one we started in Anarchy a few years back.
