    Based on some stuff that's going on in DarthCaesar's RTD, I have created this game. This will probably be the first in a series of games based on Civilizations.

    The rules: You each start the game with a Tribe, not a Civlization yet, but a tribe, you desire to become one.

    The map is limited to Egypt on the edge of Africa, Iran in the East, and Greece to the Northwest. Each turn is several years, so you should be able to attack each other at will.

    You each start with a tribe. No nations exist at this point, and its 5,000 BC, so create whatever, as long as it sounds ancient. It doesn't have to really exist, but it has to sound like it could have. A custom tribe like "The Arabian Nomads" or "The Greek City State of..." would be fine, but don't go too crazy. Anything sounding modern will not be used.

    You start as the Patriarch (Family leader) of your tribe, and will start out with seven warriors (Probably your children.) You can do whatever from there, so long as its somewhat ancient. Powergaming is prohibited, and for the purposes of this game, using modern tech is powergaming, but otherwise, play freely.

    I'm going to use a six sided die for this:

    1. Epic fail. Will backfire

    2. Fail with no penalty

    3. Partial success, or success of simple action (I pick up the cup would be a simple action, I attack X would not.)

    4. Success with no bonus.

    5. Success with bonus.

    6. Overshot, will succeed in doing what you tried to do, and maybe more.


    Signup please!

    EDIT: I forgot to type the VC. You win if you are either the last living tribe, or the most powerful when the Ancient Era ends in 1,000 BC. Each round will be 100 years (Don't ask how you can survive this long, its really rather like Civilization.)

    I found the City State of Zyxwvutsrqponmlkjihgfedcba, also known as Awesomeia. It's in the Southern-most part of Egypt. Everyone in the tribe picks up sticks.

    Can I please just call it Awesomeia? I can't possibly remember the other name.

    EDIT: Just realized its the alphabet backwards. Still calling it Awesomeia everywhere but the OP though.

    Double EDIT: What is your leader's name. I'll use your username unless you want something else.

    1. You trip over your sticks when you try to pick them up. -1 HP to your leader.

    4. You manage to train your tribal warriors to use Bronze swords, so they are now spearmen and are better in combat

    5. By tapping into the Supernatural world, you manage to learn how to move things with your mind.

    3. You successfully make a fool out of yourself.

    1. You invent rock instead, which hurts the ears of your men, so two leave in disgust.

    BTW- Signups are still welcome, I just decided to do the first round. Next update when I am ready and everyone has sent in their orders, or 24 hours, whichever is sooner.

    I guess since you are Sebastian you should have crabs. But there won't really be any gameplay difference.

    Can you post your next action?

    Erm, please read my link. If I successfully acted like a drop bear, Zyxwvutsrqponmlkjihgfedcba.
    should have taken some pain...

    2. You use Rock Music, but it fails to convince the monsters.

    6. You fall to the Dark Side, and so can tighten throats with a simple thought. However, you fell so dark that you choked and killed one of your men out of anger.

    2. They become stupid soldiers instead. Therefore, there is a higher chance they will ignore your orders.

    6. You attack everyone, including yourself. 10 damage to all leaders, and each team loses one tribal soldier (Spearman in Omega's case.)

    3. You get drunk, but the wine makes you and your men too tired to fight, or even move, therefore you cannot do anything this turn.
