    Destruction of History
    The 4th 40 Civilization Story by Yoshiegg737
    Played with: Greece

    Uses the Dawn of Civilization Modmod

    After seeing this, either your thinking "Another story? Update "insert story here" right now!" My response? Life needs...some variety. None of my previous stories are dead (except for Quest for Power because I finished it). I'll just update this story...then I'll get bored of it and update my Civ5 story...and when I'm bored of that I'll update this story again! See?

    Anyway...to this story. Why is it called Destruction of History? I will not do anything according to history. The Netherlands spawned beside Germany? NO! The Netherlands spawns beside a Greek city while another Greek city was built in Ireland! It will be fun!

    For my previous 40 Civilization stories, you can find them here:

    1. Quest for Power (Finished)
    2. Choose your Own Adventure (In Progress)
    3. Ghandi the Reporter (In Progress)
    4. Destruction of History (Finished)

    Ok, let's give you all something to read before I get attacked by Mosher



    This galley already has a settler in it! Let's go wreck something with it!
    Spoiler :


    Our neighbours. Too bad he's gonna die soon but I can't really prevent that one
    Spoiler :


    Upon exploring the countryside, we accidentally destroy Hattusas
    Spoiler :


    Then we meet some more people. Notice that Elishat has nothing to say because she is so awed by my presence
    Spoiler :



    We settle Corinth overtop some French people who wish to form a civilization one day
    Spoiler :


    Meanwhile, our warrior is having troubles with bears
    Spoiler :


    Then, Egypt shows themselves
    Spoiler :


    I think Hattusas re-spawned itself. I'll go deal with that later
    Spoiler :


    My next city should have no trouble with future Europian Civilizations...I think
    Spoiler :


    Oh look! Romans! I predict he's gonna attack me
    Spoiler :


    And guess what? He pokes his eyes out because the light from my presence has blinded him
    Spoiler :


    Oh, and we meet Persia
    Spoiler :


    The cultured Greeks realize how cultured they are
    Spoiler :


    And for those Romans: we have built our military! That should hold off Rome and future civilizations
    Spoiler :


    Next update...after Choose your Own Adventure :D

    Have a good read!

    Neat, I'm playing DoC Greece too. Looks like there's going to be a lot of revolting in this one in ~1500 years.:)

    Yeah...I played Greece before and had every single one of my cities revolt against me except Athens :lol:

    Maybe I'll do better in this story :D

    And now we have our coverage in Rome :D

    I almost capture Mediolanum. As you can see by the weak archer, I needed only one more unit to get the city. Bummer
    Spoiler :


    Well! I didn't see this coming. Hopefully, Babylon will keep him busy
    Spoiler :


    I found another city near the spot where Istanbul will soon be. That won't be for a while, though
    Spoiler :


    Meanwhile, I sneak through all of Rome and capture Pompeii. I now make the difficult decision to keep the city
    Spoiler :


    And I end up paying dearly for that decision
    Spoiler :


    Meanwhile, I get annoyed by barbarians and their horses.
    Spoiler :


    Silly barbarians
    Spoiler :


    Meanwhile, India is having difficulties with barbarians
    Spoiler :


    Then, more barbarians come to greet me
    Spoiler :


    Haaaaaaave a nice day

    Here's a treat for you guys, two updates in a day!:banana:

    For this update, it's more...conquering, barbarians, barbarians conquering, conquering barbarians, more barbarians :D

    Anyway, I go pillage-fest on Rome
    Spoiler :


    Luckely, my buddies from Carthage (AKA: Phoenicia) help me out
    Spoiler :


    Caesar allows me to correct my earlier mistake, and I take it
    Spoiler :


    Meanwhile, we find out how large Greece is
    Spoiler :


    Julius has died, and I can't say I like his replacement too much
    Spoiler :

    So much anger...


    During the fighting, we get Pyrrhos, a great general
    Spoiler :


    And then, we go on a razing spree
    Spoiler :

    FUN!


    Rome is dead! I...didn't actually do anything...but I'll just think that I did it :D
    Spoiler :


    Now I have to deal with barbarians! Unfortunatly, the first victims are my workers
    Spoiler :


    Yeah...look at those barbarians
    Spoiler :

    (Help me)


    It looks like my friends are having the same troubles
    Spoiler :


    This...is not going to end well
    Spoiler :


    But somehow, I beat more than 3/4 of their stack. Unfortunatly, that is just not enough
    Spoiler :


    Meanwhile, Corinth is thriving (lucky little...)
    Spoiler :


    Aaaaaaaaaaaaand it's Ragnar!!!
    Spoiler :

    :banana:Epic music time!:banana:


    Congratulations, Ragnar! I now officially hate you
    Spoiler :


    Somehow, the citizens of Odessos prove that they are stronger than my military
    Spoiler :


    What a shame. I had this death stack and everything
    Spoiler :


    Then, my friends get destroyed. How tragic
    Spoiler :


    But on the other hand, I gain random Celtic cities
    Spoiler :


    HaaAaaaAAave nICe daYYY!

    How are you managing to maintain stability?

    Seems that you just got the Catholic HC. Why not build the Apostolic Palace at Athens before France spawns, just in case the shrine is not yet built?

    Honestly...I ignored that since the barbarians were really taking up most of my time. Now that I see it...yeah...I guess I was pretty stable. Don't know why, though :lol:

    Uhh...after playing the next turnset...that won't be possible :D

    Can you give us a shot of the stability screen next set? I'm wondering how you can maintain stability so far out into Europe too. :confused:

    That will be a problem. I just played the next turnset during school (free time FTW) and...well...I'll just give you the update and you will see why

    Alright...to start this action packed update, I saw Spain and Arabia spawn

    Spoiler :



    Aaaaaaaaaaaaand...here come's my worst nightmare. Suddenly, I realize how badly damaged my army was after the fight with barbarians
    Spoiler :


    Charlemagne, of France, has nothing to say to me about the matter (jerk)
    Spoiler :


    The French attack Corinth (they even spawned next to it) and lose about 3/5 of their stack. Which is about...9 units. That's pretty good defending but it doesn't prevent the capture of Corinth
    Spoiler :

    Do I want to become those French jerks? No thank you


    And while I'm moving my army to destroy France, I had forgotten about the barbarians. Poor Odessos.
    Spoiler :


    And to make the Greek's feel worse, Herodotus shows how intelligent we are
    Spoiler :


    Luckely, I have many troops to spare
    Spoiler :

    Welcome back, Corinth


    Here's the battlefield. Cherbourg has 1 longbowman and Bordeaux (which they just captured) has 2 axemen. I have 1 swordsman, 1 Pyrrhos the Hoplite, 1 other Hoplite, and an archer. I leave the archer in Corinth and head out to Cherbourg
    Spoiler :


    Fleeing Greeks manage to form a settler which becomes the town of Megara
    Spoiler :


    BURN, CHERBOURG, BURN!!! Unfortunatly, only my swordsman and Pyrrhos survive the battle; sustaining serious injuries. See those French units? They are the French counter attack force, who brutally destroy what was left of my once great army. Also worth noting is that England has spawned quietly
    Spoiler :


    Oh...no...no, no, no, no, no, no
    Spoiler :


    Ironically, I met Zara on the same turn. For a second, I thought that Ethiopia was spawning in Europe for no apparent reason
    Spoiler :


    The Germans spawn and capture that annoying Viking city with their super massive army. And how much unit's do I have? 1 archer, 1 warrior, and 1 Hoplite. Yeah...I'm so screwed
    Spoiler :


    At this point, it's either bail or die. So I bail on my dying civilization (Megara was burned down by a giant barbarian stack...yippee)
    Spoiler :


    How weak was my army? After whipping a fresh Hoplite, my city, Mykenai, was still somehow captured by the Independant state who declared war on me. Ouch.
    Spoiler :


    And now...I'm Germany! I didn't expect that one. I use a few of my unit's to see how easy it would have been to capture Corinth. It was very easy
    Spoiler :


    I then take Mykenai away from the Independants
    Spoiler :

    (As Corinth becomes my capital city)


    Ragnar is so scared of my military strength that he sends in a great meditator. Sure, peace it is
    Spoiler :


    Meanwhile, some barbarians take over Athenai. That...could have been me
    Spoiler :

    (In response to your stability questions, you can see here that my stability (if I was still Greece) would have gone under. It looks like I was barely on the fence)


    I rebuild the city of Odessos with one of my two settlers
    Spoiler :


    Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand...here's my empire! Looks familiar, don't you think? All I need to do now is recapture Athenai and things will look like the way they used to :D
    Spoiler :

    NoooooOoOooOooooOoooo... :sad: Darn those Frankish Peoples! They should be brought to justice by the Germans as they appropriate the remains of Greek civilization!

    You need to invade England. Just because.
