    Shamelessly plagiarizing off a game I can't find anymore in the CIV3 forums, I have decided to start this game.

    Settings:
    Leader: random
    Land: Fractal
    Climate: temperate
    Level prince
    Size: standard
    Speed: Epic
    Other: Random personalities.

    Now, the variant. I need someone to volunteer to assign variants. They should PM each player on the roster a list of 3 variants they have to follow during their turns (one major, one minor, and one medium). An example would be AW, can only build military, no building windmills. No one else knows these variants. These should make for a fun game seeing the reports and trying to guess what the variants are. Make sure not to give your variants away in your reports.

    Roster:
    Jeejeep
    spriteSODA
    blastoidstalker
    sand
    ngraner42


    BTW: If anyone can give me the link to the civ3 sg I would appreciate it.

    I'll be your variant assigner, if you'd like. No time to play, though.

    Jeep, does each player have his own variants, or one set for the whole group?

    RT: Each player has their own.

    Munterpipe:I don't care who assigns them as long as they are assigned. talk to RT.

    We need another player or two to get started.

    Does anyone want to say anything about settings?

    Yay, now we have enough players. If everyone could please weigh in on settings, we could get started. However, I am still leaving a spot open if someone else wants to join. The more the merrier!

    I'd join, but first someone would have to help me fix a critical error that keeps happening when I try to install. Guess I'll just lurk...:(

    My only request is standard map size as large sizes slow down in the late game in my computer, Large would be OK but huge is out of the question for me.
    difficulty level prince or monarch is comfratable for me.
    I do not care about anything else.

    Jeep, is your roster finalized? Also, is there an approval process for my variants or just send them?

    what about that option that adds difernt results each time the game is loaded. it would add to the idea of mystery. i'm not sure what it does though except for people who reload battles
