    well, I am back and I am starting up a new RPC series of mine. This serves as a summary page for these new RPC games(the original RPC summary thread deserves it's own place) as they are played out, and is a forum for discussions!

    This series will be alot less structured than the previous as there is no limit to 52 leaders. I will play as new leaders/people from history or current times for the fun of it but utilizing the existing leaders (I am not modding new ones) and civilizations, although I may mix and choose (Somewhere, Boudica of Rome needs to be played!).

    So fire away with suggestions although I am not spilling the beans on future games.

    The first is up and posted entitled "Yes We Can" in honor (is that the right word :huh:) of the New American president and inspired by Slobbering Bear's Classic DUBYA RPC!

    As before thise games are meant for fun, but will have some sort of educational economy/strategy, and of course RULES!


    Barak Obama: Yes We Can: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=328751 Where Obama was concerned only with what everyone thought of him and a UN diplomatic Victory was all we could accept. Justinian got a UN diplomatic win around 1500AD which sort of was within the rules :huh:. Noted for a very fast tech pace and an early UN build date!

    Vladimir Lenin I: Comrade Chairman: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=330071 An Abandoned game as our land was too massive to handle and the AP votes was destroying the game disasterously. Lenin is returning in a second try.

    Vladimir Lenin II: Comrade Lenin: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=330985 A dominating Production based game using the Great Lighthouse and Colossus to keep the economy a float until State Property. We got a UN Diplo win the same turn we launched Sputnik into space while involved in a Nuclear War with the Americans!

    Nikola Tesla: Mad Scientist or Supergenius: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=332543 A Cultural Victory loss to Gandhi of Arabia after trying to finish the tech tree and a Space Race win. Noted for the Telsa Death Weapon (Nukes!) used to try and destroy the Arabian third culture city.

    It's a MAD, MAD, MAD MAD World: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=334074 A conquest win on an earth-18 map with myself playing as Genghis Khan and the other leaders assigned as Civfanatics volunteers. Noted for the glory of Asia and the extensive depopulation of Europe and the Americas, as only a Khan can do!

    The Gupta's: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=337230 A game where we tried for a peaceful win playing Gandhi of Indian as reincarnations of the Guptas (after the first try became unbearingly boring). A miserable game ending in a late game invasion by Khmer and Babylonia about 80 turns before we went culture.

    King Midas and the Golden Touch: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=338139Where we played as King Midas using Hannibal and got a late game culture win on the back of a massive amount of corporation culture.

    Dr. Livingston Discovers Aztec InBreeding: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=339888 Where we got a UN diplomatic victory on a Aborea huge map with 18 Montezumas!

    King George III: The American Revolution: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=342802 Where started as England on an earth map where the New world Civilizations were removed. We them quickly discovered astronomy, settled the New World, built the Palace in Williamsville, and were forced into a premature American independence by a vicious Russian attach on England. America survived and flourished, winning a space race game while nuking the hell out of France and Russian for vengence.

    The Prophet M: Islamic Jihad: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=344827 Where we got a spacerace win after founding Islam and spreading it throughout the entire world. A true Jihadist game as we played against the biggest Zealots in the game with the agressive setting on.

    Captain Jean-Luc Picard: The Prime Directive: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=346739 Where we won a space race victory as Captain Jean-Luc Picard of Start Trek after starting on the eastern coast of Australia on an earth map.

    Satan and the End of Days: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=348464 Where we got a conquest win playing as Satan (charismatic and agressive) as Aztecia and had to get a Conquest win with limited civics (like eternal slavery). Noted for absolutely abysmal tech rate such as sailing at 435 AD, Ironworking at 715 AD (for the UU), rifles at 1815 AD, and an axe-rush of Charlemagne of the Ottomans at 1300 AD!

    The Dalai Lama: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=350549 A One City Challenge on an earth-18 map starting from an improved Tibet. Added the Christo rendentor from turn 1 and got a Space Race win.

    MAd Scientist, The New World Order, A Mod: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=351630 Where I played a normal game, but used a MOD I made which changes traits in addition to adding 2 new ones (Secretive and Seafaring). Randomly we got Brennus (Secretive and Charismatic) and ran a heavy espionage game to win via Space with a very Brutal and difficult race at the end. This may be the start of a new posted game series, and is not really an "RPC" to say.

    Oh Israel, search for the Promised Land: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=353059 Where we played as Israel and had an very difficult map and were hopelessly at war with teh Persians. Abondonned and restarted and the Rebirth of Israel.

    Rebirth of Israel: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=353534 A replay worked much better with a string and many historic Jewish people as leader ending with Albert Einstein splitting in half to get Israel a two-fold victory, Space and domination of the Nuked home continent, thus Israel had 2 promised lands glaring at each other.

    Simon Bolivar, Rise of the Amazon: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=355807 Where we played as Joao starting in South America on an Earth-18 map. After one of the worse technological starts we almost managed to catchup until Shaka invaded us from Africa and doomed the Amazonians.

    King Kamehameha, This Side of PAradise: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=357215 Where we got a UN diplomatic win in a tropical Ocean Paradise.

    Sid Meier, The Civilized Tyrant: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=362647 A COnquest Victory on a Huge 6 Hemisphere Map using the 40 Civ MOD (And playing against 39 AIs!).

    The Immortal Mad: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=377446 Not an RPC but a walkthrough at the Immortal level playing as Mansa Musa on a Big/Small map. Got a Space Race victory in 1866.

    Thomas Jefferson, Manifest Destiny: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?p=9785133#post9785133 Where we gained complete control of our continent early at the expense of technologyand ended up losing to Mansa by Culture, then Hammurabi by Space.

    Askia the Brute: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=399739 Where we played as MAnsa Musa on the 34 leader earth-map mod and won by Conquest/Domination/Diplomaticy at the same time.

    Julian AAssange: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=408728 Where we played as Julian Assange using Fred's traits and SUmmeria's civilization for a espionage game and came within 4 turns of a SPace Race victory, losing in a UN vote to Degaulle.

    Attila the Hun: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=424369 Where we played a Pangea crowded map with teh goal of detroying civilization only to be =destroyed by Civilization first!

    You could also play with the slogan a bit and say "Yes we can" all the time you face a difficult situation. I picture something like the Zulu invasion of Happy Hatty and he goes: "Can we fight them off?" "Yes we can!".

    Sorry if this is too stupid, I'm having a really silly week...

    I would like to see a historical Asoka RPC. I suppose that I'm more intrigued with the real life history, which is he started as a warmonger converted to buddhism and built a whole bunch of monuments. So I guess on idea is to have a start with a whole bunch of warmongers nearby. You only have a certain window in which you may wage war. When you are at war, you must DOW any and all AI's pleased with your enemy (this to make it more challenging). After the window is over, you may no longer initiate war, but may defend yourself (although no baiting AI's with arrogant demands and no invading other AI's territory). For the rest of the game you must choose a religion (preferably Buddhism) and spread it to all your cities. Other religions are welcomed and therefore you can never switch to theocracy. The only victory condition available to the human is cultural victory. More peaceful AI's who are typically strong are placed a good bit further away (e.g. Incas, Pericles, Mali, etc).

    Post next one.

    addon


    Have you ever considered making like " the Humanist" where you have to "save" all the people on earth from their "evil" leaders.

    No Slavery.
    No Serfdom.
    You have to kill/vassalize all your rivals.
    Win only by Cultural (to prove to the world that you're superior to their barbaric rulers) and Conquest.

    You don't need a moderator. Simply edit the title of the opening post....

    OTOH I would need a moderator for doing that :p

    Well, I am dope. I just only realized now I can edit the title in the advanced edit screen, not the fast edit.

    I have reclaimed my dignity (for the moment) and it's the neXt generation!

    Okay, I've got one for you to chew on. Native American leader Tecumseh who created a confederacy of Native American tribes to resist the continual loss of lands to the Americans.

    My first thought would be to set up a Pangaea with three Native American civs (so Asoka of the Native Americans, Hatty of the Native Americans and Brennus of the Native Americans for example) down in one corner. You must unify the three, either conquest or vassal would work, and then win a peaceful victory while vigorously defending the Native American lands from any foreign encroachment.

    Not sure about the rest of the rules, but it would probably involve religions, something about never having unhealthy cities, and maybe something about trades.

    @ JT: I like the idea of some sort of North American League RPC using the North America Map at some point.

    @ Silu, see that's my problem! Spelling comes after typing which I just have not finished yet!

    @CHEESE, I think Lenin was pretty danged close to Animal Farm, but perhaps a big brother game at some point may be an idea. Something to think about.

    I have ideas for about a dozen or so more, although I am not letting the cat out the bag on this series ;)

    Would that be a team game with Mansa Musa, Shaka and ZY taking over the world? Doesn't sound very politically correct to call it that, though.
