I want to really learn and be challenged so I decided to finish my last emperor game (details in my previous thread) and start this one! Now I'm curious what I'm getting myself into. What's the difference between emperor and immortal? Is this where the AI gets a free worker at the start? Is it that much more difficult? Here's the game settings: Random Leader Fractal Temperate Standard size and normal speed No huts or events Medium Sea Level Immortal Difficulty 8 AI instead of 7, just for the hell of it. Ah feels great to hear that Ancient Era music again! Spoiler Here's the start! : So the way I see it, we have a Financial leader and we're surrounded by riverside FP's and grasslands. So far that looks real nice, plus charismatic will help me grow/whip more and work those early +3 tiles once I get cottages. Only downside is I don't see food. At least not yet. I have a feeling there could be some food up north (praying for wet riverside corn!). That forest south looks promising so I move my warrior 1 SW: Wet cows! I don't start with Agri or AH but would it be worth moving my settler 1S to grab the cows? It's 5 since they'll be irrigated. Though I would gain some useless plains. Or SIP considering the potentially better tiles up north. I know there are more riverside grassland as the river turns west. It's evident we're fairly north of the equator here. What do y'all think?
