    COTM129 Xerxes of Persia

    In the 129th Conquests Game of the Month you will rule as Xerxes over the Persians, who are Scientific and Industrious. You start the game with the knowledge of Bronze Working and Masonry. Your unique unit is the Immortals, a replacement for the Swordsman with a stronger punch.

    The game plays on a standard-sized continents map with 30% land area. This is your starting location:

    The normal changes to the Conquests rules apply to this game: Iron
    locations are fixed, and Workers insted of Settlers can be popped from
    Goody Huts. In addition to this, the following changes have been made
    to terrain causing Disease in order to limit the impact of chance on
    the competition:

    • Flood Plains do not cause Disease
    • Jungles and Wetland have their Disease level lowered from 50% to 25%
    • Knowledge of Sanitation cancels Disease in Jungles and Wetlands
    Furthermore, one of the opponents in the game is Austria. So make sure to have your PediaIcons.txt file updated as described in the Game Schedule 2017 thread.

    Scope of the Game

    Civilization: Persia
    Difficulty: Emperor
    Map size: Standard
    Map topology: Continents
    Rivals: Seven pre-selected
    Barbarians: Raging
    Required victory condition: None

    Submissions are due by 29 March, 2017.

    PLEASE NOTE THE DATE!


    After the game is released on 15 February, the start file will
    be available here.

    For the next game we need to review the COTM biq as well: first I popped a settler from the hut, and then I got floodplain disease in 2550 BC... :lmao: (I had already traded all first tier techs except for the Wheel. Which one is the one that's supposed to stop FPD?)

    Continuing anyway.

    WTF...? My fault, obviously. I must have started from the wrong save on my computer. In C3C, there is an special control to stop disease. It is not connected to a specific technology. Sorry!

    I have a quick question. When a volcano erupts, is that it for the rest of the game? Or can the volcano erupt a second time, and possibly more times later in the game?

    Thanks for the reply. You are entirely correct. The volcano has just erupted for a second time and I am still in the AA.
