Welcome to the next Warlords SGOTM

Gyathaar's Mystery Game



Gyathaar is playing this one close to his chest. So far, we know only that it is Prince, Always War, Any victory condition allowed, Epic, Standard size. There's no start position map yet, I'll add it as soon as it's available.

Versions
This game will be played in Warlords Version 2.13 only. Sorry, no Mac players unless Aspyr get their act together in time :(

It will be played using the current version of the HoF Mod. This is version 2.13.002 for Windows. You will need to ensure that you can run the Asset Checker v2 before you attempt to load this game. Typlically, players who have upgraded to Beyond the Sword will have the right assets. Alternatively, you should be able to make your installation compliant by installing the new .DLLs released for WOTM 15. If you have a Steam installation then you will need to look at this post by ArcadicGamer for inspiration.

If later versions of Warlords or the HoF Mod are released they cannot be used for this game.

Sign up
The game will start on December 14th. I recommend you plan for a 4 month deadline for completion.

Please post in this thread if you wish to join a team and take part in the competition. The information required to place you in a suitable team is as follows:-

  1. Which level (noble, monarch, etc.) are you comfortable playing in a solo game?
  2. Have you played any Civ4/Warlords GOTM games before?
  3. Have you played any succession games or SGOTM before?
  4. Do you have a group of players you want to play with?

Starting Position

TBA

Notes
  • Please visit the Civ4 SGOTM reference thread to check out the rules and procedures to ensure that you are adequately prepared for this game.
  • Warlords v.2.13 is supported for this SGOTM. No other versions can be used, and you will have to stick with the same version throughout the game.
  • Teams will compete for up to four awards - the Gold, Silver and Bronze Laurels for the fastest finishes, and the Wooden Spoons for the lowest scoring finisher. The number of awards may be reduced, depending on the number of teams who sign up.
  • Awards will be given to teams who win in the least turns.
  • All saved game files uploaded to the server are parsed through software that extracts and archives data about your save, including reload count for each turn set.
  • Spoiler information will absolutely NOT be tolerated in this thread.

Please sign up here, now, for this mystery tour of the World of Warlords.

4. XTeam please. :hammer:
5. What's a Mac? :mischief:

It runs the OS your team was named for ;) And it's the only hardware on the planet that will run *every* great desktop OS legitimately. But I guess you knew that already :D

I'm here, i'm here. Some doubt about it?

Which level (noble, monarch, etc.) are you comfortable playing in a solo game?
Chieftain (Settler is copyrighted by Gosha)
Have you played any Civ4/Warlords GOTM games before?
Yes, long time ago (see my complaints in pre-GotM 25)
Have you played any succession games or SGOTM before?
Since the 2nd one
Do you have a group of players you want to play with?
call us a group if you want, but we are a team: FIFTH ELEMENT
still, i'm afraid we'll have some defection due to Warlords, let's wait and see.

And thanks for have started this thread.

But don't eat too much, otherwise you'll spoil your appetite for the complaints you get when our start position is tundra, with no metals nearby ;)

I've forgotten the questions... my guess is:
Monarch/Emp, yes, yes, 5th Element.
