    An excerpt from the introduction of The History of Daqin (c. 1345):

    We are of the last army of the Daqin Republic, the Lijian. Our fathers arrived in this land across the great sea to the west, building magnificent towers out of stone and gold. They came to fight the Anxi kings, but they were cast off, building new homes in our ancient lands. Later we found that usurpers had taken control of Daqin and forced its citizens to follow a barbarian heresy akin to that of the Mengwu. Afterwards, many have laid claim to our ancestral name, but they are usurpers. We who are legitimate inherited the name of Daqin and Fulin, father and son of the republic, from our own fathers, our ancestors, whom we honor with maintaining our customs. These pretenders have proclaimed emperors who rule until their deaths, worshiped as gods until that point. We remain true to the Daqin doctrine, for we elect temporary rulers who step down when their period of reign ends. We hear, however, that there are others who likewise follow the truth of our ancestors, but we have not yet encountered these few. Perhaps in the future, Man will become more enlightened towards the truth.

    Attacking is never easy. 2:1 is considered a normal attack ratio, if you want a 50:50 chance of winning. Remember a defender has a chance of finding the best terrain, cities, rivers to hold. So if you want to attack you have to use overwhelming force. But you do have the element of surprise, and can attack when/where the defender least expects it. i.e. no DoWs required.

    GM: Pre - Start ruling. If you are going to call yourself Rome, you need to give a bit of a background to why you should be called Rome.

    We are the True ROMANS, The Lord Jah said upon Jesus's apostles from Ethiopia go create a new Rome for the true believers in Jah! Destroy the White man and White Rome, the children of Jah and Jesus are from Africa!

    The Jews did this. Rome had no problem with Jesus.

    What do you mean white boy? He was a rebel from Ethiopia who came to Rome to spread the message of Jah, is it not correct that Pontius Pilot ordered the execution. Jesus was going to make a new Ethiopian Empire, a Rastafari empire out of the world, a new Rome, that legacy Jah left to us.

    You re-write history. And the black people are only good to be slaves.

    GM: To the Romes: Your shortname will not be called Rome, it will equal your province, unless you have already given me one.

    e.g. The Roman Empire of Russia, will simply be called Russia, or Muscovy on my stats page.

    I'm not going to lie, I only choose France and the Netherlands because of the factories. As it seems like I no longer have the biggest advantage in the game (I don't follow rules so I have no idea if I ever did in the first place) I decided to become a new empire.

    REBA

    Official Name: Grand Slave Republic of Blood and Decadence
    Unofficial Name: Reba (so called after our leader, Empress Reba McEntire)
    Color: Red or Gray
    Flag:



    Offical Language: A new language called 'Reba', which is like Japanese except with a lot more screeching.
    Exports: Slaves, obviously
    Claims: mali, mauritania, senegal, guinea, ivory coast

    GM Sign-ups lock in 1 week. This will allow me to set up the spreadsheet and stats to allow the game to commence on 1 Aug.

    Should I join as a few of NPCs, if no one takes their spaces in Europe.

    Thinking France, England and Germany (and possibly Scandinavia)
