Greetings everyone - its time to start up a new PBEM game! Its summer, people are on vacation and times are slow, so let's get some excitement back in these forums again and maybe bring some new people into the fold to play a new PBEM. This game will be played using the Rhyes and Fall Mod, the Multiplayer (MP) edition. You can find the MP edition on these civfanatics forums if you don't have it already. Instead of having another huge RFC game, I'm hoping to keep it small and simple: 7 players, all European civs with fairly close start dates. The civs listed below are the options for the players to choose from: Vikings - Ragnar - Starting year: 545AD (Turn 177) - Nighthawk419 Spain - Isabella - Starting year: 720AD (Turn 193) - Eclipse France - Louis XIV - Starting year: 750AD (Turn 196) - Imp. Knoedel England - Victoria - Starting year: 820AD (Turn 203) - ReallyEvilMuff Germany - Bismarck - Starting year: 840AD (Turn 205) - Hercules90 Russia - Stalin - Starting year: 860AD (Turn 207) - Academia Netherlands - Willem van Oranje - Starting year 920AD (Turn 213) - AdrianIer Portugal - Joao II - Starting year: 1130AD (Turn 234) - Rodrigo Costa Civ selection will be first come, first serve, and I will take the last civ available. All victories are enabled except Time - this game can continue forever until someone wins! There are no other rules, just play the game and try to win, the first person to get a victory condition wins the game! Logistics Note: In order to make this work, I need to start with the 3000BC save and play a civ until the spawn of Spain at turn 193. I will be playing as Egypt while this game fills up with players, and then retire to the AI once Spain has spawned and we are off and running. I don't plan on winning as Egypt or doing anything crazy, just survival until the other humans spawn. I will be using the city governor and building the first recommended option on the build list when prompted, unless there is a survival emergency. I will stay within Egypt's core as well. Hopefully this provides the most realistic AI-like play until the meat of the game is ready! Download link for RFC MP needed to play this PBEM: http://forums.civfanatics.com/downloads.php?do=file&id=7427 House rule: no spawn killing. Each player controlled civ is allowed 5 turns of universal peace from the date of their spawn. After that, anything is allowed.
