    SGOTM3 Rome - Game Thread.

    Hi everyone, and welcome to your game thread.

    Here is the start position.


    Here are a couple of links you might find useful.

    The Original GOTM16 Announcement.
    The Draft Constitution

    This Months' sponsored variant is Xenophobic NOW
    The rules are as follows.
    1. Non-Oscillating War variant. You keep a list of opponents and the order in which you meet them.
    2. You must declare war on the first Civ you meet before leaving the diplomacy screen for the first time.
    3. You must stay at war with that Civ until one of you have been eliminated.
    4. You must declare war on the second Civ you met on the same turn that the first Civ was eliminated or 20 turns has elapsed (whichever happens sooner). This is to prevent sandbagging.
    5. After each opponent is eliminated or 20 turns elapse you must declare war on the next civ in the list.
    6. If you run out of opponents because you haven't met them yet and 20 turns have elapsed, you must declare war on the next opponent you meet before leaving the diplomacy screen for the first time with them

    The Xenophobic part of the variant runs as follows.
    7. You may never own a foreign worker. You must never buy or sell one, and if you capture them they must be disbanded on the tile on which they were captured.
    8. All deals must be at face value. No haggling.
    9. You will not establish embassies.
    10. You will never retain a town that contains foreign citizens. Such towns must be razed and any workers spawned disbanded.

    Also there is a puzzle involving some non-standard Barbarian Units. The puzzle is framed in the same way as it was for the original GOTM16, but the solution is different.

    The save will be available from >>HERE<< when the timelock is released. All of your teams save files will eventually be available from this link.

    When you finish your turn, you may upload your save to >>THIS<< link

    Have fun, and good luck everyone!

    You might want to PM these guys Ankka, in case they haven't seen the threads.

    I was just doing that. :)

    One doesn't exist.

    EL_OSO was written with an underscore, IIRC. Not sure. So that might be wrong in the roster you made. :hmm:

    Hi, my account wackenopenair was banned for 3 days because elsewhere in the forums i accidently used a bad word. I know a second account is against the rules, but i felt i had to give a sign of life here. So moderator please excuse me. I will only use this account in this thread. Possibly only this once, if i am asked to answer within 3 days, i will use it again in this thread. After 3 days, i will abandon this account and only use WackenOpenAir again.

    So i here i am, WackenOpenAir.

    In weekends i am often not online, so if i seem to be missing, i usually will be back monday.

    This thread is now in my favorites, and i will be reading it dayly.

    Moderator Action: DO NOT DO THIS AGAIN!
    This a/c has been perma-banned. Whilst banned, you still have access to your PM system, so you can let your team mates know via that method, and you can still read the threads.

    Double-Logins are not allowed, especially to circumvent bans.

    Please read the forum rules: http://forums.civfanatics.com/showthread.php?t=422889

    I'm bored, so I decided to try and analyze the start a bit.

    Looks like a game... but that's not enough bonus food for a settler factory. Let's hope some more is found for teh second city...

    We are militaristic & commmercial, so we start with warrior code and pottery (?).

    I think we should settle where the setler stands.

    We should research pottery if we don't start with it, if we do, then Alphabet.

    What victory should we head for?

    Please everyone post you ideas and thinkings before we start. :)

    Hey, sorry, I haven;t been online the last couple days, I am here and ready to go. Never done this before so I'm not quite sure how it works.......

    I would agree that we should quickly settle - either where we stand or one move west.

    Rome's a militaristic society, I think we should probably go for domination.... :king:

    checking in.

    agree with first turn settle.

    Romes UU comes fairly early, so we might consider researching Iron Working, and an early conquest victory?

    We should now decide whether or not we are going for the variant, BTW. I personally am not so interested in it, but if you guys want I'll play too.


    Alpha and wc... we should perhaps research Writing, it will be good for trading with the AI for bronze and pottery, maybe.

    I think we should go for iron working and then build Legionaries. Also, wouldn't it be a good idea to try to build a bunch of warriors and then upgrade them to Legionaries???

    Since we're militaristic, and we have an early Golden Age, I think we should go for conquest.

    This post is from WackedOpenAir, he sent it as PM to all of us, I think....

    variant.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I hope SOMEONE reads his PM's. I have sent a PM about strategy to ankka before, not sure if he read it. In that i assumed whe would play the variant. Dunno why i assumed it, but i did

    If it is to vote for variant or not, i am neutral in that. For myself i would do it; I normally play deity/sid anyway, i like chalenges and it would be a nice change to the game IMO.

    However, if other feel it is too hard (i do not know level of game knowledge and experience of the other players except that i noticed ankka finishing pretty high with another team, which looks good of course )
    Therefore, consider my neutral, because while i like challenges, i hate losing .

    If any of you reads this PM, please post it on the forum directly because i suspect many people not reading their messages.

    Also would i like to ask people to be a little more active in this thread if possible. I am probably a jobless lowlife (very busy looking for work though, only finished my study one week ago) but i look at the thread like a dozen times per day, hoping to see some reactions.

    Finally how about EL_OSO ?
