    Actually, I put you in ankara! :lol: Now I see your location. Where would you like to be then? The orange is actually Uralia, skilord's nation.

    And erez, you are the light pink on the northern coast of the black sea.

    EDIT: If anyone wants to move or change nations, now is the time.

    Ruler: Consul Tiberus IV/Xen
    Age: Late Classical
    Economy: Based off of farms and fishing ports. Small amounts of trade is conducted through Barcelona and Valencia itself. Largest trading partners are Marseilles and Castile. Most people are peasant farmers, and slavery is very low-key.
    State of Economy: Stable
    Army: 14,000 Infantry Well Trained, 4,000 Horsemen Well Trained, 20 Catapults
    Navy: 80 War Galleys, 30 Liburnas

    Culture: Okay
    Confidence: Good
    Wonders: Great Granary of Barcelona, Barcelona

    I have just come up with an idea for this NES.

    Are you a mod? Ever look for a solution to end the 500 year wars? Well, here is a solution! Its really a modification of uk's battle phase idea. What happens is turns are 100 years long. I update on Friday for 1000bc. This means I do all orders and write, being it military, domestic or economic. The week that follows, though, has three other smaller "battle updates". What happens is in this time, a war could be going on. To better simulate real time, players of the war will send in orders for these updates, and I will do a battle for each update. You cant recruit more troops, build roads, or start trade routes. all you can do is loose men in war and gain land (and perhaps economy too that can be spent come the next real update).

    How does this sound? Essentially, if Egypt is invading Syria, and he wins three major battles in the three battle udpates, then he can conquer Syria in just one turn.

    The problem is that it will slow down turns, since they will be weekly. But it is my understanding that it is weekly updates anyways in most nes's nowadays, and this way you get a little something something inbetween (and not have to wait a week to see the next battle in your war!).

    What do you guys think?

    If done right that would be great, but it would slow things down horribly. :)

    This concept seems oddly familiar... almost like it was copied and pasted from one of your past NESes ;)

    lol, i did have an nes that I had small, mini-updates in between big ones, but those you can do a lot mroe in and took longer for me anyways.

    These "updates" would soley focus on single battles and their immediate aftermath (what territory is lost, etc).

    EDIT: btw, I am done with stats and history of scandinavian countries and french-region countries. I am going to bed, but tomorrow i will work on iberian, italian, german, and eastern europe.
