Welcome to the 2nd game of "The Emperor Series" hosted by... ME! ^_^ The idea came upon as a gathering point for any players interested in having fun or improving their games on Emperor level maps. Sharing of ideas, suggestions, advices, and criticisms are welcome and appreciated here. I ask that everyone, including myself, give the community an update of our experiences in spoiler tags, except for the very 1st discussion on where to settle our capital city at the start of the game. Feel free to be as detailed as you want. Preferred Checkpoints: Turn 100 1 AD 1000 AD Liberalism 1500 AD End of Game Please note that "Choose Religion" setting is turned on for the variety in dominant religions differing from game to game. Okay! Let's get started! Ready to school the Emperor AI? ^_^ Here is our leader this time around: Spoiler : Our Game Settings: Spoiler : And here is our starting position: Spoiler : Hmmm... only rice as a workable resource at the start, with the other being spices that won't be workable until Calendar. At least we are river side though, and there are lots of hills around as well as some forests for chopping. Very interesting. NOTE: I think Sitting Bull was generally quite unpopular with many players, so hopefully our founding father Georgie gets a bit more love this time around! HINT: This start is NOT isolated or semi-isolated. It may look like it at first, but with a slight bit of more effort, that initial impression will dissipate. I am sure you guys know what I mean, don't you? ^_^ Well, I haven't looked at the map myself, but it's been verified by a reliable source. So, let's have some fun, shall we? ^_^ EDIT: Since the upload feature is down here at CFC, I have uploaded the save file to MediaFire. Download HERE!
