Terrific scenario! I'm playing with the Ottoman Turks on Emperor and I didn't know there were scripted events so those Gallipoli invasions took me by surprise. I love it! I was able to protect my city and kill the invaders but just barely. I was able to capture the Caucasus from the Russians and immediately befriended Lenin and the Bolsheviks once the Russian Revolution started. Greece and Romania declared war and my troops slowly but surely took over those nations as well as the Russian city of Odessa. My troops down in the south quelled the Arab Revolts and managed to capture Egypt after an intense fight with the British. After the rebels took over Nicosia from the Brits I captured that too. Meanwhile Germany was getting decimated by the combined forces of Russia, UK, France, and US and it was around 1918... hehe good timing. The Axis made peace with Tsarist Russia who were then free to fight the Commies. I managed to turn the tide by re-capturing all the six German cities the Americans and French took. My troops in North Africa are slowly making it across the desert (Brits landed in Lybia and attacked my forces!) and Austria-Hungary are on the gates of Rome. It seems we may win but it's not a sure thing. France still has as much power as myself and Tsarist Russia is a juggernaut and after he kills Lenin he's coming for us. It's now 1921 and the Western Allies are still in it. I made a Permanent Alliance with Bulgaria. I used quite a bit of draft in this game to get attack troops and to protect from amphibious invasions since I didn't build much of a navy. Naval mines work well. I like that even the minor nations follow the events and declare war on proper dates but diplomacy is open and you can make your own destiny so to speak. I also like that the AI seems aggressive and does attack in numbers. I have only a few questions: 1) Why lower the terrain defensive bonuses i.e. Hills only 15% and Forest only 25%. To simulate the stalemate shouldn't these bonuses be high if anything? Maybe the regular 25% and 50%. 2) I took all the Romanian cities and their civ was still alive for 30 turns. Did someone have to kill all their units? Greece died right when I took their last city. 3) Is Austria-Hungary too strong? For most of the game they were stronger than Germany. Maybe it's just the RNG in this particular game. Anyways love the scenario!
