    PBEM POST ROMANUM

    This is a scenario PBEM, with 4 to 6 players, starting after the collapse of the Roman (West) Empire. This scenario was created by VeBear and slightly adapted by Luthor.

    History
    The year is 500 AD and the world is at total war. The Byzantine is engaging in a large scale war with its long time enemy the Sassanids while barbaric nations have carved their way out of the old Western Roman empire and are fighting for control of the once so mighty Rome. China is divided by the Qi and Touba Wei, and nomadic confederasies are searching for any way to conquer their technological superior enemies. The Gupta Empire controls most of India, while Sri Vijaya, Yamato and Goguryeo are earning lots on a flourishing trade, while across the sea, the Mayans have just started to bloom.

    This was a scenario created by VeBear... it should be somewhere in the Civfanatics download area.

    I don't have a link at the moment but can provide the initial file... good enough?

    Hmmm... for some reason I can't upload this file...
    "Earth500AD-VeBearL.CivBeyondSwordWBSave" (825K)... don't know why...

    So I've uploaded a single player file if you wanna take a look.

    I've looked at this game. It would be more interested if the two most powerful nations (Byzantine and Persia) were played by AI. Human players should cooperate to survive.

    That's a great idea!

    Which nations do you propose to be human?

    I've made the changes... what is your preference of civ?

    I'll ask D!ck if he is still interested we can wait a bit, but if no one else shows up we can start a game with 4 players... I'd like more but there aren't many interested...

    Just a tip from the side line:

    make sure you to make the AI's level low enough.
    In the save file Byzantium will be hard pressed to keep any research going
    (at 100% -49 per turn).


    And another quick remark:
    if you like the old times be sure to check out The Ancient Mediterranean mod.
    This one is great..

    I was expecting to see if we had more players but I guess we can do it with 4 players.

    I've got your emails.

    I've tested the defined setup and all seems OK.

    Write Your email to Luthor using Private Message and wait for Your turn. Is it Your first pbem? If yes You must know that game will last few years.
