    Hey just read the front page and was about to create a nation. Guess what? I find people talking about this one being dead andf a new one starting. Huh. At least ill be able to play from the start.

    I would say either classical or industrial. Maybe medieval if the map is a detailed europe one though.

    I would also suggest making the first navy and army you create (which are created for free if im right) have free upkeep so that people can keep a minimal defense while staying on track with tech and other expenses.

    I hate it. Army and navies are not needed for defense if you read the rules right, so this point is meh. Doesn't at all make sense from the realism.

    If we do classical I'll probably be Israel. I don't know who I'd pick for Industrial.

    I love their culture, but I like Athens better overall.

    If Classical, I´ll be The Amazonians ;) (anyone who´s discovered the hidden joke gets a prize. Clue: It´s from a brilliant Strategy game).

    EDIT: The fact that I´m Brazilian is a complete coincedense! :p

    Someone correct me, I'm not an expert on Israel's history, but did a unified Israel exist in the time of Greece/Rome?

    At the time of Augustus, the Levant was completely under Roman control, as a swift reading of the Nativity story will tell you :)

    Before that, I think it was Ptolemaic territory.

    I assumed we would be starting prior to Alexander the Great or the rise of Rome, but I think it was owned by Babylon then... ?

    Well, since we always believe the Bible, there were the successions of Assyrians, Babylonians, Medes and Persians that ran over Judaea/Canaan. The name Israel is of course a modern name for the ancient turf.
