Welcome one and all! It's that time of year again, where Nuke Nes starts. However, this will be quite different from the last ones. For one, it is going to be realistic, and hopefuly better than all the rest combined. I have borrowed most of the rules from Birdjaguar, as well as the map and Ideas.
So, before we begin, there is a few things that need to be cleared.
There will be 7 year turns. Why? Well, 5 is to short for colonial years, but 10 is to long for Europe. 7 makes it balanced for Land and Sea players
There are lots of nations and upon request others can be added. In the Americas I have placed the following as player choices: Incan Empire, Aztec Empire, Cahokia in the Mississippi Valley, Calusa in Florida, the Iroquois Nations in the northeast, and Pueblo Indians of the southwest. In Asia choices are: Persia, Mughals, Rajputana, Ming China, Japan, and a variety of other small Indian states. Other nations are possible, just ask. The Mongol tribes and Golden Horde are the decaying remnants of the Mongol Empire. A great leader could attempt to resurrect them, but warfare has changed in 400 years and their time of glory may have passed forever. There is room for those who will want to build a land based European empire without colonies in lieu of the overseas conquests common to the time.
Also, to add to the spice, natives won't die from new diseases. Just to add to fun.
I will honor all previous sign ups untill Monday. If you see an Npc nation you want, post for it.
That pretty much covers it. I hopw you all read the rules, and choose a nation to play.
Do not post yet
