Ever since I got Civ 4, my favorite thing to do was load up Rhye's and Fall of Civilization and play it for hours until I had to either eat, sleep, or (rarely) do homework. But while I loved creating a 21st Century Ottoman Empire or blitzing through the Old World in German panzers, I found that my favorite thing to do of all in RFC was to pick a more laid back civ (usually barb-free Japan), sit back, and see what the AI chooses to do with the other civs. While some things I saw were par for the course (barbs over-running Egypt or Rome), others were rather interesting indeed (you've seen Persian Korea, but have you seen Greek Korea - defended by only a mercenary archer? ). In the spirit of this, I've decided to start a game where my civilization will not be the focus of the game - rather, I will focus on the antics of the AI nations, and will share these events with you all. I won't be going for a UHV, nor any other kind of victory (if I do win, it's sort of an accident). Though I will give status updates on my own nation, the focus will be on the other nations. This will obviously mean I will be entering WB a lot, but this is only to remove fog of war and see what the other nations are up to. Only exception is if i need to add a few units to my army if I'm about to be overrun by another nation. I'll keep playing until you onlookers tell me in the comments that it is time to move on - at which point, I will start over with a new nation and do it all over again! This is intended to be a continuing, never ending story. I'll let you people decide what nation I'll play as, from the following list: Japan Khmer England Dutch If someone has a better civ for me to try, I might add it to the list (try to keep the nation out of the way and/or small). You have until I decide to begin to vote (probably a few days to a week). One final thing. I will continue to do this for as long as I can, but in August, I start college, so expect fewer updates then. If there ever comes a point where I cannot continue this at all, then I will notify you, and I'll allow someone else to begin a new story. You may begin tripping over each other trying to vote now.
