    Are you going to turn on Aggressive AI? How about Raging Barbarians?

    Emperor Virgin, Monarch playing, screenshot posting, never been in a SG with you before, but still ready to crash and burn, reporting for duty.
    I say settle on spot, start a worker and let's head for BW right away.

    In other words, if there's a spot opening, I'm in if you'll have me.

    OK pholk, you've hooked me. I can barely play Monarch competently, so why not?

    Roster updated; all are in!

    @ Chrth ~ I was thinking of Raging Barbs, and would still be up for it if the group is down for it.

    Also, we need to discuss a leader, too. As I said, i've got a hankering for a hunk-a Alex, but am open to anybody but Nap (eh, LB ;) )

    2 spots still open, too!

    Shouldn't you be playing CTIV-9 instead of goofing off?

    lurker's comment: As you are Emporer virgins, I would suggest either Alex or Mao. They are both Philosophical plus they both have great UUs. The Samurai would also make Tokugawa a good choice.

    Alex is my favorite too. Nice early UU and I haven't played him that much.
    For the other options, I like both Agressive AI and Raging barbs.

    Edit: Forgot that we are doing emperor so I take back that last sentence. Might turn out to be a death sentence.

    Not a sign-up because I'm sans-civ at the moment. (And because I'm currently prepping for PR-02 AWD108CCHTBOBEC&TWOT.) Still, wishing you the best of luck. My you get your asses handed to you in style.

    Alex is a nice choice from the list, because he sucks as an opponent. He can be Friendly and +20 and attack you for the hell of a it. At least the other ones will just be annoyed the whole time first.

    oh, and, we didn't want you in the group anyway! :p

    I have about four computers that interface with CFC. Only one (zero currently) that can actually play the game.

    Alex is fine by me. I haven't played with him that much either.

    @ChrTh: turns played, saw this opening when I started to write the report, and think to myself: better grab a spot fast ... :) And I wasn't goofing ... we _did_ play better ... at least in the VQ sense :D

    I am okay with Alex .. phil and aggr is a great combo IMHO.

    I'm okay with raging barb ... to lose is to learn :D :D (Psst, that's is reverse pyscology, since Pholk says he is up for it if the team is down for it, then the converse should hold as well :lol:)

    Oh man, this is tempting. I'm actually a Monarch virgin but I'd love this opportunity to kick my play up a notch ::BAM!!::

    Sign me up!

    The internet connection on my Civ machine may be tenuous over the next few weeks while my home is being renovated. But I'll be able to post "SKIP MEs" during that time if necessary. If you can have me like that, I'd like to be on the team.

    Im not emperor virgin and dont have time for now, and plus I have some of my own variant ideas which I eventually want to get running once some of my other SG's finish. But Pholkhero, I hope we do a little sequel to PH-1. The revenge of the angry men, or rise of the angry men, wahtever ;D. we should pick one of the angry men and go after all the females in a always-war style Prince level game :D.

    Ill be lurkin though.

    The sequel to Rise of the Queen Mother will be Rape of the Queen's Maidenhood and we'll get to it someday. Don't worry, Poopman.

    i want to do one as well, but 2 things stopped me from this being an AW-sequel to our game: a)our glacial pace w/SGOTM, and b)though i'm 'the queen,' i don't feel as if i'm the captain, and wanted to have the team collaborate on the next one (again, AFTER SGOTM, i think) ~ but i agree, AW Prince with one of the men v. Hatty, Cathy, Izzy, (Vicky, too?) and some others...OR was thinking having it be teamed up w/an AI and having several "marriages" as the other teams ~

    @ Frankcor ~ Bam! you're in, of course!!
