The Mighty Khan Segment 8: The End of America part 2 So the results of the AP vote come in Well, that was expected I guess. The segment proceeded without a "Peace" vote, but there may be some real concerns for future wars against our Buddhist friends/victums. Meanwhile the great city of CHicago falls, much history there and many statues to former greats, but teh attitide in the city once the Mongols entered were "What have you done for me lately." Oh yes, and some talk about a stupid goat which had nothing to do with this battle. So with the Mighty cities of Philadelphia and Chicago lying in ruins, Ghengis plans to settle between them and claim the elephants, only to see The 40 year guy tells the Mongol, "Just run over them, they are a bunch of never beens." So the city of Cincinnati is destroyed and the last Mongol city on former American soil is built These 3 Mongol cities will end up claiming many luxury resources, helping the future war effort (especially paired with Monarchy) and trade. But for now happiness is not an issue So Ghengis sits down to talk with FDR, and finds, Well now, willing to prostrate himself him at the Khans feet and become a vassal with a mere 2 cities left. While FDR is willing to give a king's ransom, the mongols are not interested. However, we are willing to take peace with Fred who actually put up more a fight that FDR (hell, we fought a small invasion force!) Now while playing Mongolia I do tend to forget to report how the cities are doing, but I can tell you we are close to finishing the Forbidden Palace on this continent Burning cities is all well and good, but seams like we burn through the treasury just as fast The LAST Mongol city is built, near the capital to reduce the temptation of other powers settling Mongol lands. Hell the fish and iron are enough to build a good city and like this can become the Maori city if we ever get hold of some stone. But now the Horde is weary and time to take out the last 2 American cities of San Francisco and Seattle, First San Fran The 40 year old wonder was not found here, but the Mongols find a warrior kneeling outside the city gates, doing absolutely nothing while the horde passes him by and burns the city to the ground. As the Mongols left he was still there, talking to thin air and some say he was arguing with an old ghost. As the Horde approaches the last city of Seatle, the 40 year old guy from Boston says "Don't worry, they will just give you the city. Not on purpose but they always make fool mistakes" So ended America! Ghengis call after the 40 year old and asks him, "Hey, just who are you anyway". The 40 year old guy just smiles, waves with his arm around his wife and says "Just an old warrior who knows how to win." He was never seen again but his legend spread around the globe that he was the greatest ever, although this was always questioned especially by people who saw an old ghost that apparently came from the city of San Francisco. So Mongolia has 3 very well placed cities that desperately need courthouses. And Ghengis looks f=very greedily at that prime Celtic land that lies between the Mongolian cities Now we did find a slew of unemployed American workers from the Seattle razing Something about the Amazon moving and no work, who is Ghengis to understand American, he has other things to do. So he he sends all of these workers (10 workers for these few American cities, all while Mongols pillaged, what the hell was FDR thinking!!!) The Mongolia to work. They were quite efficient and quickly working on bringing the new Mongolian lands up to useful levels. Yes Monuments, then courthouses, and I thing=k we can spare a few Buddhist missionaries in the future. Yes there cities will grow quickly. So we saved here with 10 turns left on Guilds, for Knights and Grocers. After that, well I am thinking Gunpowder. Seams like Mongolia has really 1 option at this point, expansion and war. The land is getting better, but still not great Techwise, we are still doing OK but The Indians and Egyptians must be watched. Would be regrettable if the religious Rameses and Religious Ashoka went to war. Power number expectantly dropped against Brennus, but given our tech advantage I think we are OK. And the demographics Hmmm...... By the way, RAmeses built the AP. So my friends, where do we go from here. I think time to crack for markets and grocers, the economy is going to hit real hard, we just enough treasury to finish guilds and not a whole lot of food to support a lot of scientists or merchants.
