    Haven't read it yet since I'm at work :) I'll read it this evening.
    No shame in being eager. It's only a good trait around here ;)

    I figured you goal was to get some culture points, that's way I suggested writing about some Athenian Citizen. (Mind you I have dips on a farmer who is toiling on Tambiens fields ;):p)

    I didn't see 8 players agree with your system. Last I checked only 4 have said they agree.

    Fine. I will post it here, because I have a sneaking suspicion that most people dont check the SG. We can vote on it here.

    I will update as soon as I get any issues with player orders ironed out. And you are at 6 (Tambien, Jehoshua, Filli, Joank, Magnive, Sparthage)

    I might support it if the Gods King or Lords would just invite me to the social group...

    That would be Tams job. Our Emminent Autocrat created the social group and is thus its moderator.

    The autocrat demands it.

    Jehoshua Earned 3 prestige for his story. Antonius Earned 4 prestige for his story. Nice work guys keep it up :)

    When the people heard the news they rejoiced. For no less then five full years they would be reprieved the burden of a tax on the trade conducted in the provinces. (ooc: or land tax as Tambien called it) Prosperity once again returned to the land and the people hailed their Prinkipas as a savior of the people, throwing yet another festival in his honor. There was much talk around the city about the Japanese. They had heard talks of them among the nobles, but nothing much was known about these strange people, and rumors spread like wildfire. Some believed them to be cannibals, others savages, and still others believed they didn't exist at all!

    I am officially introducing a new mechanic: Ethnic Groups. Ethinic groups are culture groups of people that have distinct customs/languages/ect. All those in a specific
    Ethnic group will more often then not agree on major issues and have the same opinion about Players. Each new founded Greek City-State will also found a new Ethnic group. Along with the Greek ethnic groups, foreign nations will also have their own ethnic groups. Eventually, through immigration, new ethnic groups will arrive in cities who previously may not have had any. Ethnic groups will evolve naturally based on events in the game and player actions. At the bottom of Session Updates I will post "Known Cultures" which will have a description of all known ethnic groups.

    Known Cultures:

    I thank the wise king Tambien for allowing me entry into your hallowed halls of discussion.

    And I thank the diety dot80 for the culture points.... er, assuming that by "Antonius", he meant "Aaronius". :woohoo:


    As far as the proposal goes, I preferred the original rules. The way this game is structured, the players that get in early have many advantages. Giving existing characters control over settlers just increases the advantage that much more. It looks like the motion has been passed already though, so I will just argue with myself..:hammer2:

    I agree with Aaronius: the entire purpose of the city states is to avoid having the first players control everything, like in other forum games, so I think the random people getting settlers makes more sense. It also makes sense historically because oftentimes dissenting groups are the ones who get to leave.

    Sorry about that. For some reason I always read and write it Antonius...

    The motion has not yet passed. We have 6 for (Magnive, Filli, Tambien, Sparthage, JoanK, and Jehoshua) and 2 against (Swimandciv and Aaronius). Against needs 2 more votes to overturn the notion, and for needs 2 more votes to pass the motion.
