December 21, 2012 There had been no warning for the events of that day. Astronomers had for years reported nothing but boring, black space around the Earth. It was as though the meteorite had just suddenly appeared in orbit, leaving only a scant few minutes for word to spread before impact. As the meteorite hurtled through the atmosphere, fragments broke off, creating a rain of fire spread for miles beyond the main impact site. The actual damage caused by the impact was surprisingly small, however. Impossibly small, according to some. The main meteorite only destroyed a small, mostly uninhabited island. The smaller fragments, whilst more widespread, mostly hit the outskirts of cities, killing far fewer than would have been expected. Even the aftereffects were strangely muted; the apocalyptic visions of the widespread destruction caused by such a scenario never came to be. There was no gigantic cloud of dust blocking out the sun, nor were there earthquakes, or floods, or any of the events that should have followed such a cataclysm. It was as if the laws of physics had, for some unfathomable reason, chosen to spare the human race. But while the impact itself would not destroy the world, it would cause the most bloody and destructive period in history, and the ascension of mankind into something greater.... The Gaia War Right then. This story is my attempt to gain some publicity for a scenario I've been working on (Seeing as how, since I haven't posted at this place in forever, if I tried just going, "Hey guys, try out this kewl scenario I made!", the general response would be along the lines of, "And you are...?") So. The scenario. It started out pretty small; just a little scenario I was making for me and some friends based off of our countries in Facebook's Nations application, so I could get some modding practice for working on Playground Mod 2.0 (Since I don't have Bluemofia to do all the hard work anymore. And I swear that I going to get that mod done. Eventually.) It kind of grew after that, and around the point where I started messing with the terrain graphics I realized that I had what could eventually become a full fledged scenario. And here it is. Game Info Stuff: I will be playing as the Empire of Omegia, who are Militaristic, Industrious, and Commercial. Difficulty will be at Emperor (A first for me). The only possible victory conditions in this scenario are Conquest, and Victory Point via Reverse Capture the Flag. King units are in the game, but the civilization keeps going if their king is killed. And now, onwards to the game.
