This is an idea that I did on Prince but since this will be Monarch I am interested in the results. So we go like this; Warlords Objective: to have all our cities borders touching (after border pop of course) at all times, (so we need at least one fat cross tile next to another) around the globe.....after that we will come, will come, to a diplomatic vote to decide on the victory. Leader traits; organized, imperialistic, expansive. Which leaves us with; (reading as I go) ...............The Ottaman Empire! Any rules? Yes. We can not at any cost declare war on any city that is not within our path of ringing the globe, and this also includes any barb cities that happen to cross our pass.....I know it will be tempting but well............... given the restrictions the leaders that I came up I am not totally opposed to suggestions (financial a possible) so go ahead and make your opinion known, no harm done. Map: Large Lakes, or if we are really feeling up for a challange we could do Fantasy. SUB: Barbs on normal, sea level = random. Epic or Marathon, it will go long. If we need to stretch borders across water that is fine but we can not have more than one latitude between the cities, it is lakes so I don't think this should be a factor but I have seen stranger. All welcome. Yes all!
