We're the Romans on a normal size lakes map on emperor level, and our aim is simply to win, whatever it takes. Roster: Sirp Skyfish Iester ToddMarshall bed_head Game speed is 'normal'. I will play 20 turns, and it'll be 10 turns each after that. Our starting location: I'll be playing it in the next few hours. I'm slightly torn between settling on the starting location, and wasting the forest versus moving onto the hill to the west, and settling there. I'm leaning toward settling on the spot though. I think this is a good start: lots of food with all the flood plains, a health resource and luxury resource, each of which can be used early, and some hills which should give nice production. Lots of forest to give health or chop (I'm a pretty avid chopper, though in some ways it feels a little 'cheap' because it seems rather powerful to me). Couldn't ask for much more, except perhaps an extra resource or two. -Sirp.
