    At first, i was considering creating a map with a large number of civilizations appearing at once that were chosen from a list, but i think now it would be better to do a true fresh start. It will be on the same map, but the player will be able to create their own original civilization instead of being restricted to a list of real civilizations.

    I realized that players enjoy giving character to their own controlled empires and that really is diminished when choosing a from ones that already existed, so i've determined that a fresh start would make more sense.

    *Has idea*

    Anyway, on-topic...

    I don't really care either way. If this system helps you, do it. For most practical purposes, this will still function similarly to a fresh start.

    Otherwise, I'm good with a change.

    To be honest I was playing this kinda like a fresh start already with the Attican League.

    yeah i was getting that idea, and i thought it would be best if i just abandoned the idea of having the lists and whatnot and making it officially a fresh start rather than being on the fence about it.

    It's officially a fresh start, tomorrow night i will create the thread for it, and you will make your own original civilization. I am going to sort of disregard the claims to different areas posed in this thread, however, you are welcome to claim the same location tomorrow.

    Just say "i'm in" and claim a location, you can develop the submission after you've safely gotten a spot you like to avoid rushing/confusion. Thanks guys, glad i was able to make up my mind before actually starting it, can't wait to launch this fresh start!

    Hm. Yeah. Very true.

    Given that, maybe you should just do that.

    If so, you could either do the wave-based thing erez did (though there are problems with that), or let everyone go in at once.

    EDIT: X-Post with above 2.

    Alright, I'm good for a fresh start. Will probably be claiming the same area, just to let the rest of you guys know. Or maybe I'll move over and populate Asia. We'll see.

    Any. For example, it is "tradition" to consider Western Europe+mediterranean as a "cradle" simply because so many people want to join there.

    Of your going to do more than just claims starting area, at least give us a level of detail that doesn't make us think barbarians, why should I talk to them. Name of castes(you obviously miss named here. Caste is a better word), What sub classes in them exist, what to call your leader, something other than that ungodly history. Makes me think barbs, not a civilization on our level, and it means the actual summary of your history, not religious history. Do preists have more power than nobility, or is a plutocracy of merchants the powerbase. The military? All five equally? The people( note: not a viable option right now)? just germany is a bland name. Are you th kingdom? Empire? Something new? What you have put tells use you wish to join, and have little to no thought to detail so far.
