It is the year 1600BC... Spoiler : Since time immemorial Greece was always divided into kingdoms. Minoans seem to have angered the gods, the island Thyra exploded, it was the biggest volcano eruption ever made in human history . The vast tsunami crashed their merchant and military ships. Achaean kings, that of Mycenes being the most powerful, saw the opportunity to invade them and take over. However, even their timeline is about to end. Ionians, Dorians, Aeolians came from far and wide, from Ural mountains in modern borders of European and Asian Russia. Now, we all these people live here in this place. We saw the mean of war and natural disaster, we had enough adventure during this millenium. All of us, although still uncivilised, wanted to see a long lasting peace, for an a reason unexplained to most historians. The benefits of this peace become clear. We made contact with the developed countries in Africa and Asia, and saw unparalleled trade opportunities, new techs, new ideas. We aren't united, but we still want to become part of history, we should make it not just for the greeks, but the other genarations to come, that a civilization not centered around a king can be great! Let's allow different political entities to express their selves and lead the whole greek world into the next stage in history. May the best of us prevail! Attention! Rules are inside the following spoiler. Spoiler : Disclaimer: Inspired by the arab and the american story I would like to make a similar story about Greece. Meanwhile, this is the first time I make a story. However, I don't know if it is the right time to do so, three stories running at the same time . Rules: I'll play the game in Monarch level, on Marathon speed. I'll interupt the game to give you choices every time one of the following happen: *Discovery of a new tech (and one turn exactly before the construction of the oracle). *Finishing the construction of one World Wonder. *Finishing the conquest of one civ. *Be declared war by someone. *Recieve a great person. I'll announce the beggining of every vote round. After half day I will announce the end of the round. Only bold votes between the two posts count (and mine of course ). I'll announce the result and play straightforward. Spoiler : I may abort the project if fewer than three people vote in a round (excluding my self). If a round is tie I can vote a second time to decide the winner. I don't guarantee I will win the game. I will try to stick to the decesion as much as possible. I will post the first round of voting tomorrow morning, Greece's time. This post was made at about 00:35 (Greece time) 28 of March 2014, so you can calculate the time difference. Time schedule: Spoiler : The marathon game takes about 300 turns to be completed in Marathon. However, about the last 120 turns is about discovering philosophy, so don't bother them. I calculate that the game will be interupted every about 10 turns. So this makes a total of 12 interuptions. I intend to play every twelve hours, so the game will finish in about a week (and another one week to discover philosophy ). Note that I may not be able to play at the Thursday and Friday of next week. I hope you will enjoy! Please, feel free to say your opinion!
