[UPDATE:I tried everything I could to salvage the last save file. I don't know what is wrong with it. I really, really, really wanted to salvage it. But I couldn't, and I just want to work on a story again so yet again back to page 1. However, 3rd time is a charm as they say. I promise one day this little dude is gonna make it to the modern ages. First time was HD corruption 2nd was a bugged save. The good news: I can now implement Blake's Better AI, I upgraded my video card so the screenshots will look proper, and I have some minor graphic mods on the game that IMO also make it look more interesting. The prologue is basically staying the same so if you already read it you can skip to Chapter 1 again.] ************************* Tale of Sir Flevance Huge map : 12 Civs : Prince : Raging Barbarians : Random Personalities : Aggressive AI : Marathon Notes: - The main charactor is a charactor from an old D&D game. He was chaotic evil gnome sorcerer but he begins to change inside CIV to some extent. I will be roleplaying him as the game progresses. - All diplomacy is roleplayed based off of the leaders actual words. So, if they say something that suggests their superiority (Even though, we know this means nothing) I will roleplay it into the story. Example: Now I have a spearman Ho, ho,ho! will mean that leader boasted his military in dialog. To what degree is at my discretion. - The game will not use cheats. (However I have not check "No Cheating" because of some situations that may arise such as a worthless AI city built on ice that culture flips. However when I do this I cover the minimap and avoid seeing the 'unknown' things.) As well, I will work what I changed into the story. (Said city will have migrated or something) - I have found I personally enjoy writing the story more as I get into the charactors in the story. So, the text is a bit stretched due to my wanting to cover key aspects to certain charactors, mostly in the beginning. As the story goes on less of this will happen I am sure. Encouragement on my writing of the previous story I did has seemed to have made me go into more detail on some issues although I am trying to push the story along as much as I can. - This story is my own, not modelled after Japan or any ancient customs. The beginning tribe considers all of its members equals as regardless of gender or rank within the tribe.
