    2. Must conquer Lhasa if it is on map
    3. Must demand tribute from at least four city states throughout the game.
    4. Must go to war with whoever attacks Korea
    5. Must achieve diplomatic victory
    6. Reach 60 million pop.
    7. Must take at least one policy from Tradition, Patronage, Commerce and Order

    Diplomatic stance:
    Hostile towards Japan, India, Mongols, Huns
    Friendly with Persia, Korea

    That's quite a roll-call of enemies.

    We weren't enemies with all those powers at once though.

    Before 400AD, we weren't at war with the Celts, we WERE the Celts. We were at war with and were defeated by Romans. After that Rome imploded and I don't think we had a problem with city-state Italy, or Byzantium.

    However, we were at war with Bluetooth and his Vikings. Then from 1066 on, more than 800 years of conflict with France and Spain. Netherlands and Germany were our allies in this. We were only enemies of Germany for a brief part of the 20th century.

    Yeah, I know! I was just brainstorming some of the epic struggles spanning over a vast amount of time. Would probably make more sense to focus on one specific era :crazyeye:

    I think there's the basis of a really good idea there, the only hard bit as I see it is balancing the challenge across the civs - or maybe that isn't such a big issue?

    How exactly would you be able to determine this short of building a ton of units to completely remove Fog Of War from the globe, making sure you have Open Borders with everyone, and counting all the AI's ships each turn? Perhaps there's a way to reveal the entire map with the In Game Editor, but I know nothing about that.

    Wow I usually not go that far when roleplaying. Usually I'll pick a civ i'll protect like crazy based upon which civ I have. (example I'm America, I'll do whatever to protect the English)

    Sometimes I'll try to be the Universal defender against tyrany and oppression(almost like the Freedom Tenet)

    Sometimes I'll try to replicate Swiss neutrality with my civ...etc

    Well, one can never be sure, but at least give the navy some effort would go a long way :)

    Russia

    Must become #1 in terms of territory.
    Must adopt religion from another civ and keep it dominant in your borders.
    Must build Kremlin in Moscow and Hermitage in St. Petersburg.
    Use Great General to take away a piece of land from the neighboring City State. OR: make another civ's city join your territory due to Unhappiness and ideology pressure.
    Have at least 15 copies of Oil within your territory.
    Have at least 2 Great Works of Art, Writing and Music produced in the era that falls into the 19th century in the game.


    Hostile: Mongolia, Poland, America, Japan, England, Ottomans
    Friendly: China, Byzantium, Germany*

    *YES, despite the WWII events. Ideally there should be the objective "Let Germany declare war, then you march into Berlin and force a peace treaty. Remain neutral or friends afterwards". However, we can't control AI's behavior.

    Can you put maps type (earth, true location or not, pangea, etc.) and difficult level ?
    Some rolelplaying are interesting.

    Just to be right, we only loose against Panzers... and Longbows... and Cossacks... and... Forget, we suck.

    Russia - or better, JFD's Soviet Union with Lenin/Stalin mod

    Earth map, true start location

    You can't take Tradition, Commerce, Freedom or Autocracy

    You have to immediately declare war on any civ which takes Tradition, Commerce, Freedom or Autocracy

    By the end of game all remaining civs have to follow Order [doesn't matter how they achieved it] and Order should be World Ideology.
