    SGOTM 15 - The Missionary

    Thanks for this scenario once more go to neilmeister, who brought you The Wizard of Oz.

    Gandhi has finally completed his training, after years of diligent study, he has mastered the ways of a Hindu priest. The temple that he grew up living next to, has accepted him to join them, but the voyage home is a long and treacherous one. He is of course caught at sea by vikings. :rolleyes::viking: They sack and burn the ship, leaving everyone for dead. After days or perhaps weeks at sea, praying to Shiva :please:, Gandhi is washed up in a strange, hostile land.

    Dazed, in darkness he stumbles inland, following a river, falling asleep on a river beach. You are playing Gandhi of the Indians.

    For your deliverance, you vow to spread Hinduism to this new world, and spread the name of Shiva.


    Victory: The laurels will go to the team that can secure the fastest victory. Thats right, everything is in.
    Level: Emperor.
    Map: Custom.
    Speed: Normal.
    Options: Well, LOTS. Lets see, there's: No City Razing, City Flip After Conquest, Aggressive AI, No Tech Brokering, No Vassal States, No Goody Huts, No Events, Unrestricted Leaders.
    Victory Conditions: All enabled
    Opponents: 8
    Special Condition: You must found Hinduism, immediately convert to it as your first and only state religion, and then remain Hindu for the entire game.

    Starting screenshot
    This is the start of the game (click for a bigger image):



    Timetable
    All dates are in 2012.

    Please sign up in this thread by January 14 at the latest. To help us to assign players to teams, please indicate your preferred team, whether you have played previous SGOTMs or SGs, and the highest level of Civ4 difficulty you can typically win at.

    The game will start on January 21.

    The completion deadline will be May 21.
    Players are advised that delaying victory until the last possible moment is NOT recommended. Apart from the strain on the team, it plays havoc with my pacemaker :mischief: :old:


    Awards
    The laurels will go to the teams that can remain Hindu for the entire game, and secure a victory with the earliest in-game dates, before the real life deadline of May 21.

    Wooden spoons will go to the team who finishes the game (win or lose) with the lowest score.

    Soundjata < this is my name
    Immortal < this is the level I am training on but have yet to master
    Zero < participation to previous SGOTM

    Quite a rookie on the forums but my age is twice what it was when I discovered the CIV series.
    I have followed (lurked) the last 2 SGOTM, and I am a fan of the Plastic Ducks :blush: I would happily join any team though :)
