PBEM - THE DILEMMA INTRODUCTION What to do if we have a huge army and no money? What should we do? Disband the army? Use the army? Use the element of surprise and attack, making the war attrition take care of the unsustainable army? Or select only the best soldiers and wait for the warmongers to make their “surprise” attack? Is the best to invest in the army and forget all research or outwit the warlike nations, surprising them with a small but highly advanced army? This PBEM is intended to start from the Classical era with some unique choices. There will be some cities already placed on the map. Some Wonders will be already in the game. Some wonders won't be possible to build. And other wonders will be available to build. This game is designed for players that like to be surprised by a non-usual scenario. The strategic resources will be handpicked according to a secret masterplan.
