The Rise of Erizo, a Rhye's of Civilization China Log

Chapter IX: "Operation: Alexander" and "Operation: Zion" ... for real this time!

We make plans for Operation: Alexander, investigating all the Persian cities.

Persepolis has 8 units.

Antioch has 4. Arbela 12. Pasargadae 3. Gordium 2. Total defenders/attackers present in cities? 39.

By contrast, we have 50+ cavalry.

--- Operation: Alexander ---

Marius was confident he could conquer all of Persia within 8 years.

But rather than attack, he chose to wait another 8 years. The reason? A flawed railway system made it possible for Gordium in South India to escape domination.

...And Marius would have to wait another 8 years; the Arabs blocked the quick route to Arbela. Instead, he just said "Screw it." and went ahead with invasion in 1488.

Marius demands Persia turn over all railways constructed during the Babylonian War. Since this would split Persia in half, Persia refuses. Marius smiles and returns the favor with an assault on Gordium!

We lose 2 cavalry while assaulting Gordium. After destroying their walls with a well-placed artillery shell, however, the units inside all die, and the city is ours:

Spoiler :

We then move on Pasargadae. We kill the first unit without casualty.

No losses, we capture Pasargadae and the last sections of the Indian subcontinent:

Spoiler :

Then on to Antioch. The first cavalry in barely does any damage before getting massacred. The next enemy goes down easily, and Persia's elephants take up the defense. The Elephants manage to kill 1 more cavalry, but they are greatly weakened. In retribution, an artillery barrage destroys the city's walls. We lose only one unit afterwards in the following battles, and capture the city:

Spoiler :

Antioch's fall allows us to transport units by rail to Shadolon. More importantly, it splits Persia in half. The city nabs us two Persian workers, who are sold into slavery(Marius' decree abolished slavery WITHIN Erizo; people could still be sold into it in foreign transactions) abroad to Israel and France.

Marius decides it's time to bring the guillotine down - literally - on the Persian Shahanshah. He orders an assault on Persepolis itself.

The first unit in suffers not a single casualty and defeats the Crossbowmen inside. When the next unit is repelled, Marius decides to show the Persians what REAL artillery - the Persians had used a Trebuchet to try and damage one cavalry unit as it rushed in - means. The effects are devestating; all units are reduced to half-strength.

We then massacre 4 units without loss, including an Elephant Archer band. We then kill the rest of the garrison with no losses and take the city:

Spoiler :


While we find the Shahanshah, most of the government has escaped and left him to die. But it is not the Persian overlord that Marius is after, in reality. He started this war not with a quest for land or more money - amazingly. He started it because the Persians, since time immemorial, had one of the legendary Seven Chaos Emeralds. The nobility had taken all the crown jewels, including the emerald. So far away from his precious emerald, the Shahanshah's immortality had been stripped from him, and Cyrus the Great - as he was known - was locked up until Marius himself arrived.

Marius arrived in Persepolis by airplane. With him, he carried his infamous black-colored sword, Terrabane. Striding through the palace in black-and-red armor(despite being in the industrial age, Marius kept the armor on almost all the time, for both nostalgia and security purposes), wielding a powerful blade - allegedly crafted by Shadou himself - he looked like a Grimreaper in knightly/kingly form. Upon encountering Cyrus, the two had a discussion about politics, the war, and their societies. It was almost as if two friends were conversing.

But Marius cut the conversation short. He motioned for one of his men to hand him a ceremonial sword; this was the royal blade used for execution. Cyrus was ordered to bow down at gunpoint, and kneel before the Erizoan Emperor in a Caotao(where the head touches the floor) position. Cyrus was sure Marius would execute him, as he was famous for doing to defeated rulers. However, as Marius slowly brought his sword down, Cyrus was ordered to slowly lift his head back up. Pleased with his submission, Marius then put his sword on Cyrus' shoulder, and decreed him the satrap(the Persian term for governors with near-complete autonomy from the Persian ruler; they only had to provide troops and taxes to the ruler and could do as they wished besides that) of all the provinces of former Persia. On Cyrus' death(Cyrus having been rendered mortal without his emerald to give him immortality), the satrapies would pass to new rulers, appointed by Marius.

Marius' reasons for sparing Cyrus were numerous. Cyrus was extremely popular thanks to his benevolent - albeit absolute - rule of his people; he could win over the conquered Persians. Cyrus and Marius also had much in common in terms of political beliefs. Cyrus himself was a generous, humane ruler, having decreed at the beginning of his reign that there would be no slavery or religious persecution in Persia. These decrees were recorded in the Cyrus scroll, the first human rights document, and Marius took the scroll back with him to Shadking, where it was stored alongside Marius' decrees of religious freedom and the abolition of slavery.


Less hopeful and joyous, however, was the continued war effort. All those who did not bow to Marius and Cyrus would suffer the consequences. All Persian workers and soldiers within occupied territories were massacred or enslaved. (People within the empire who took up arms against the Emperor were stripped of citizenship, and thus were not entitled to slavery protections, and thus could be sold abroad. Prisoner laborers were still citizens, and thus there children would be citizens, and thus they were not really slaves.)

Now, we must wait another 8 years before we can claim Arbela.

1496, we press our attack on Arbela. The Walls are destroyed by artillery. Artillery then hammers the entire city, reducing nearly every unit inside to half-strength.

... We defeat ALL the units WITHOUT any losses! The city is ours, and the Persians are destroyed:

Spoiler :

With the fall of Arbela, all Persia is formally annexed by Erizo. Marius' dream of an empire stretching across Eurasia is nearly complete. On top of that, he now has 2 Chaos Emeralds to use for his own ends.

Territory added to the empire thanks to the Perso-Erizoan War(circled in red):

Spoiler :

With the conquest of Persia, we now possess 15% of the world's land and 19% of it's population. Our closest competitors in land and population are America and Austria, respectively. America has 5% of the land while Austria has 8% of it's population.


With our power base in Asia now secure, Marius feels ambitious enough to attack the Hebrews and then face down with Egypt after they're gone. The Israeli military remains pitifully small at 33 units even after all this time. Many of these aren't even home; they've gone to war against Russia. ...That said, Marius informs his commanders that the Hebrews, though tiny and outnumbered, should not have their military strength underestimated. The generals tilt their heads; they know not the reference of such a statement.

We acquire Sanitation from the Romans; we try to boycott purchasing technology from France, which has over 30,000 gold.

All cities with population issues are ordered to build hospitals to service these populations. This includes cities in the former India.

1496 ends; we hope we have enough force to conquer Israel in the near future.

...The Russians bring the Zulu in against us once again. Fools. Word also reaches us the French have taken Russian Krasnoyarsk in South America.

1504 AD, Marius orders investigations of all 3 Israeli cities.

Jerusalem has 4 units inside. Samaria has 5. Hebron has 4. The majority of the Hebrews' military is not inside their cities! This victory should be easy.

--- Operation: Zion ---

Confident in his empire's military capabilities, Marius delivers a declaration of war to the Hebrews.

The first move is a bold attack on Jerusalem itself. Egypt predictably declares war on Erizo. We redline the enemy unit before our first unit in is forced to retreat.

Marius has the walls of Jerusalem destroyed by artillery. The result is 1/3 of the enemy's HP being depleted. After another unit retreats, we manage to kill 1 enemy pikemen without loss. We then lose 1 more cavalry, who doesn't even scratch his foe.

Jerusalem falls eventually:

Spoiler :

Marius makes use of a neat exploit by rallying several powerful countries against the Egyptians AND Israelis. The exploit is that once one of the enemies is killed, all pacts become invalid, all trade of goods ceases, and Marius becomes free to make peace as he wishes - WITHOUT a rep hit. Neat eh?

The end result of all this diplomacy, is the entire world being against Egypt and Israel.

The assault on Samaria begins. The first enemy unit engaged is killed easily. Same goes for the 2nd and 3rd. And 4th...

As Samaria is the largest city, we choose to leave it alone after redlining it's last defender. We shall return once Hebron is ours.

We lose only one unit, and ancient Hebron falls to our armies:

Spoiler :

Marius does not move straight on Samaria, however. First he captures all Hebrew workers; these are the numerous workers that he captured from other countries and sold to Israel just a few turns ago!

We finish off the Hebrews by taking Samaria:

Spoiler :

The Hebrews were defeated with such speed that the Egyptians did not have enough time to react and prevent the fall of their ally.


All our former pacts are invalidated, but Egypt remains an international pariah.

With the demise of the Hebrew state, we now control 16% of the world's land and 20% of it's population. We also now control just about every inch of the old Silk Road, and we also have access to a Mediterranean port.

A map with territory gained from Israel:

Spoiler :

...And on another note, Israel is the first country completely destroyed by Erizo's armies in a single turn.

But, back to war! We manage to plant spies in the Egyptian Empire, and they will hopefully destroy it from within.

Egypt's total forces are approximately:

19 Machinegunners, 1 Musketmen, 9 Riflemen, 11 Cavalry, 9 Trench Infantry, 2 Elephant Archers, 4 Fusiliers, 1 Partisan, and 1 Colonial Infantry. This makes a total of 56 units across their entire empire. By virtue of machine guns, however, we cannot hope to breach Egypt's defenses.

That in mind, Marius decides we'll make peace ASAP rather than pursue territory in Africa. He orders numerous machinegunners to the border, and workers as well to construct forts and barricades. The Suez strip, as it is called, will make an excellent defensive boundary that will slay any Egyptian trying to cross into Erizo.

We also kill the Egyptians in our territory without loss: 1 cavalry and 1 Trench Infantry.

The "Suez Line", at it's peak during this turn, has 5 machinegunners and 1 cavalry in each of it's forts:

Spoiler :

Note the river to the west of the forts, and the fact the forts themselves have been upgraded to barricades.


1512 AD, France and Japan declare themselves mutually-protective allies. This is probably due to Japan having 200+ units stashed inside it's cities.

The Russian colony in Scourgestralia is destroyed! Russia's time as a major colonial power will end as soon as St. Petersburg - their only home port - is taken.

We complete a military reform that attaches medics(Battlefield Medicine) to all units. Our soldiers may now heal behind enemy lines.

France displaces Austria in 2nd place for world population; they have 9%.

--- Operation: In Da Nile ---

We choose to invade Egypt after all, or at least harass it. Every single piece of artillery under our command - a solid 26 units - is ordered to the Sinai peninsula. From there, they have the range to bomb across the Red Sea and hit Memphis. If Memphis gets softened up enough, we can consider a direct assault.

As well, plans are made to do the impossible: Send a settler to the border, settle there, and therefore dig a canal that will enable Mediterranean and Indian/Pacific Ocean Fleets to interact.

1520, the Americans finish the Statue of Liberty, enabling them to finally achieve Major Power status; the Statue and Ellis Island's opening attracted huge numbers of immigrants from Europe(once more, to escape the carnage), and these immigrants brought so much skills and knowledge that the USA was on par with France and Russia in technology.

Our spies inform us the total forces in Memphis have dropped to 4, there's only ONE Machinegunner in it. They are immediately redlined by an artillery barrage.

We lose an elite cavalry, and another cavalry is redlined, but... the Machinegunners are killed! After that, we kill all units inside with no losses, taking Memphis:

Spoiler :

Part of Egypt's core - the Nile Delta itself - now lies within our grasp. As our artillery pool grows, we will likely be able to claim one or two more of Egypt's cities.

Amazingly, only half the citizens inside chose to revolt. Maybe the Egyptian people have wised up to who rules the world?

The fall of Memphis makes our share of the world's population jump to 21%.


The Suez line loses it's strategic significance; Marshland and territory will prevent the enemy from reaching it. 6 Machinegunners are deployed to protect Memphis.

With one city down, we check the Egyptians' Army size. They now have 54 units, several of which are low in defense or out of date(Pikemen). An investigation soon deduces that, while it has 7 units guarding it, Alexandria has NO machinegunners guarding it. Knowing he must take opportunity or lose it, Marius orders an assault.

Artillery do their worst and seriously damage the Riflemen and Flak companies. No losses, we kill the Flak unit and 1 other unit. Then we lose a cavalry in a fight against a Lancer. We then lose a Lancer of our own, but redline an enemy. Then we kill 1 of the Lancer bastards. Then the Riflemen unit goes down.

A few battles later, and Alexandria is ours:

Spoiler :

The elderly Cyrus farther East takes note that this was the part of Egypt he had long since wanted, for it would give Persia access to the sea. He is glad that Marius succeeded where he failed.

Suez is founded in the bowels of one of the forts in the Suez Line:

Spoiler :

We end this turn by making peace with Russia. Since they're confident in the stalemate, they demand some compensation. We agree to part with 3 gpt. The reason we pay gpt is to not only prevent them from mass-rushing any troops, but also to make it so that we get our money back if they choose to go to war with us in the near future.
=== Intermission: State of the Empire ===

It can be observed from the posts aboved that Erizo has come a long way in 4500 years. Once a country barely managing to get by, it now has bases on 4 continents and has absorbed countless nations into itself. Now, for an internal analysis of the empire before we get to the landmark Chapter X.

First, the power bar to show just how much stuff has changed:

Spoiler :

We've come a long way, hmm?

Now, our rankings:

Spoiler :

You can observe we monopolise first place in the majority of positions. Only a loose network of machineguns and sometimes alliances can keep Erizo in check now. And once we have nukes/tanks... hohoho!

Let's take a look at Erizo proper and see how it's doing:

Spoiler :

You will notice how already cities are starting to go above level 10 thanks to our Hospitals... some cities are shrunken because of Settlers being produced recently.

And ending that, we have something you ALL love! Geography!

Here's an in-game map of the world(territory circled in red for easier sight):

Spoiler :

Now here's a long-overdue present:

Spoiler :
Erizo's armies really are blizting your enimies. You took down Persia and India in one turn, the Hebrews in one turn, and two of Egypt's major cities in one turn. Soon no one will be able to stop your army from steamrolling their cities.
Erizo's armies really are blizting your enimies. You took down Persia and India in one turn, the Hebrews in one turn, and two of Egypt's major cities in one turn. Soon no one will be able to stop your army from steamrolling their cities.

Blitzkriegs are excellent! My artillery softened up the Egyptian machinegunners, I send in the cavalry - who have 6 attack to the machineguns' 12 defense - and with a little bit of luck, manage to get that last blow in. That's the price of Egypt not keeping more troops in it's cities. ;)

I took over Persia and India in 2 turns each, actually. India got lucky because their effing jungle and island colonies prevented rapid annexation. Persia got lucky because the dang units milling about due to wars all over the world resulted in me being unable to strike their last city in one turn(there was only one set of hills around Arbela, and my units could not reach it due to some damned Turks blocking it!). You're spot on with Israel, though!

The point is, yes, I am blitzing my enemies nicely. It'll be true especially next chapter after you see the massive transformation of East Africa. :D Plus, I now have tanks and I'm researching Fission. :nuke: I should be able to get the UN before anyone else, and thus prevent any damnable AI from holding Secretary General elections and dethroning me. (The UN victory is kind of silly anyway, considering the UN's powerless, but... anything to please trade/diplomacy players, I suppose)

I hope to have my next update soon!
IMNSHO, The "Diplomatic" victory is the lamest (or I should say l4m3$t, since it's so far beyond lame that it's l4m3) way to win or lose in this game:

In higher difficulty levels (as in above warlord), by the time you can get the wonder or SW that allows the diplo victory, no matter what you do, EVERYBODY is going to be pissed off at you and/or vote against you.

That means that either (a) you lose, or (b) if you've got at least 50% of the population (which I'm close to getting in my AoI game), you win by the mere fact that you have a larger population than everyone else put together.....

I.e. anticlimactic either way. That's why I permanently disabled the diplo victory in the FF mod, and In future AoI games, I'll disable it there as well. ;)
@ Hikaro:

Worry not my fellow time traveller/dictator/leader/messiah! :D

I managed to build the UN and Manhattan Project, and I refuse to hold elections each time. Good, considering a 2nd World War has erupted, 1/2 the countries of the world have Anarchy as their government, and I'm dropping nukes on every enemy in my way(America, Turkey, and Mongolia in particular).

You'll appreciate the irony that America was the first country to ever get nuked in this timeline!
Chapter X: From the Sahara and Ethiopia to Korea (1528 - 1586)

1528 AD, the great age of Scientific Discovery that Erizo had so long enjoyed finally ended.

Marius was a wise leader, and he soon purchased the secrets of motorised transportation from the Italians in the West. This was to avoid purchasing it from the Russians. Immediately after, the plans for the Russian T-34 were stolen by a few Russian emigrants, and these were modified into an Erizo-friendly design. Marius boldly proclaimed that within 10 years, he would have motorised beasts to run over the Egyptian Machinegunners. Their coloquial name? Tanks.


While the factories of Erizo worked hard to assemble these new war machines, Erizo's armies remained concentrated in the north of Egypt. The French, being allies of the Erizoans, had taught Marius the secrets of the "Grand Battery" maneuver, where massive amounts of artillery fired on one target, decimating it. Intelligence reports revealed to the Emperor that the capital of Egypt possessed only 8 divisions inside, one of which had been greatly weakened. While half of all soldiers were machinegunners, Marius shortly ordered all artillery within range.

Hot, screaming death rained over the city of Thebes. In the first wave of artillery, 4/5 of the Machinegunners - or 16,000 soldiers - were killed or injured. While casualties were tended to, the dead buried, and leaders tried to rally the troops, cavalry had to take up the defense. Those too suffered huge casualties, and they were eventually pulled back in favor of machinegunners when word was received the Eastern enemy's cavalry were charging.

Egyptian cannons responded in kind to the assault, managing to slay a few of the charging enemy by firing directly into them. However, the machinegunners were war weary and did barely any work before being cut down. Many had even tried to run; much of Egypt's army was becoming draftees and forced soldiers thanks to the anarchy of the South - where all the wealth, such as the gem mines, were located.

The common people desperately tried to escape the city, obstructing the paths of what soldiers actually managed to do their jobs. As enemies rushed in, machineguns opened fire, killing friend and foe alike. In fact, more Egyptians were killed by the defensive machineguns than the Erizoan cavalry!

As the Egyptian Pharoah subtly made his escape up the Nile amidst the anarchy of Thebes, machinegunners did their worst. Their ruthless tactics of shooting through their own citizenry allowed them to slay an elite band of 7,000 Erizoan Cavalry without a single casualty. Their numbers swelled by 1,000 to 2,000 men, but half were killed immediately after by another ruthless barrage by Erizoan artillery. The next unit was heavily disheartened by seeing so many bodies - civilian, friend, and foe - that they were cut down by the Erizoan cavalry forces.

Their replacements were hardcore patriots, unwavering in the enemy cavalry charge and slaying 6,000 Erizoan cavalrymen. Marius huffed at this loss; numbers like that were drops in the bucket to the MASSIVE population of Erizo's empire. He then ordered another artillery barrage, damaging all the soldiers inside and reducing them all to around 1,000 men a piece. But Marius's blood had boiled at the loss of men - even if he didn't seem to mind throwing them into a meat grinder - and the refusal of the Egyptians to surrender. He ordered the artillery fire to continue, and artillery shells blew the mosques of Thebes to pieces.

More artillery hit high-rises in the city, killing 1/10 of it's population. The Erizoan Emperor craved blood, but enough conscientious soldiers convinced the emperor to stop his assault; they appealed to the fact that while the Emperor was immortal and ruthless to his enemies, he did have a humane side. Could any humane person continue to drop artillery shells on people running about in the street, desperate for shelter? Could any humane person blow up civil institutions and murder those who lacked the means to escape? No. The artillery barrage stopped shortly after, and the skies of Thebes could be seen again and the fresh air inhaled, rather than the darkness of smoke and shrapnel, and the smell of burning flesh and wood.

In the next assault, another band of machinegunners was slain, though the Marian force sustained 3,000 casualties. But they were replaced with patriots, of course, and these patriots managed to kill 7,000 cavalrymen.

That band, however, was Thebes' last. Marius' brilliant generals knew headon tactics could not work, and they managed to capture another entrance to Thebes. From there, they entered the city proper, while another unit of cavalrymen charged into the machinegunners. But before the machinegunners could even get through their magazines, they were all struck from behind. The Erizoan military maneuver had surrounded them; machineguns could only fire in one direction, after all. And unfortunately for the now-dead Egyptians, they had all been pointing forward.

With the machinegunners dealt with, Marius decreed an all-out assault on Thebes. Egyptian partisans - 1,000 in strength - were cut down by Erizo's forces without casualties. 3,000 Egyptian Lancers then met their deaths after they futilely tried to charge against their gunpowder-equipped foes. The last of the blows was dealt by Erizo's world-famous Riders, known for often fighting the last battles against enemies. The Riders themselves had declined to only handful of regiments, but they were good for propoganda.

Spoiler :

Thebes was now under Imperial rule, and while much of the population rebelled, the Pharoah acknowledged his homeland's loss. Pharoah Tutenkhamen - an ancient leader, being in possession of a Chaos Emerald - had fled to Hieraconpolis all the way in Central Africa along the Niger.


Anarchy soon reigned in Heliopolis. Erizo's intelligence network had detected that not a single machinegun was within Heliopolis' confines. Heliopolis was the last Egyptian city on the Nile, and if it fell, the Egyptian Empire would lose the first half of it's name.

The artillery cannons had mostly been used on the former Egyptian capital, but Marius still had spares. All spare ammunition was loaded on trains bound for Heliopolis, before opening fire on the river-bound city. Heliopolis' best defenders were so demoralised and reduced in number common cavalry had to take up the defense of Heliopolis.

While the first band of cavalry was easily defeated by Erizo's superior cavalry, the commander of Heliopolis quickly wised up to his enemy. He called out the Trench Infantry, who dug their namesake trenches near the river. Erizo's cavalry were slaughtered one by one, but 1,000 of the force managed to retreat.

Marius responded by sending spare artillery from Erizo itself to the front. These artillery proved effective, slicing the Trench Infantry and Riflemen units in half, from 4,000 soldiers to 2,000.

Partisans soon took up the defense, and the hardcore Egyptian patriots proved effective. They managed to take 5,000 cavalrymen out of action, but the last 1,000 able-bodied cavalry used superior tactics to slaughter the 4,000 Partisans. Humorously, 5,000 Egyptians were forced into service and then forced to use outdated pikes to fight the Marian forces. Marius' cavalry naturally prevailed, slaying all the Pikemen without casualty. Riflemen, once again, had to take up the defense.

2,000 Erizoan cavalry found themselves injured and incapacitated, but the Riflemen were slain.

The infamous Trench Infantry then used explosives to turn the inner city's roads and buildings into hills and trenches. No backup from Hieraconopolis was coming, so the Egyptian soldiers figured they may as well destroy as much of the city as possible, and then dig in to fight the enemy in a glorious battle to the death.

Initially, the Trench Infantry were successful. As a unit of 7,000 elites charged them, they fired from the trenches without losing any of their own 1,000 men. 6,000 horses and riders promptly were incapacitated. But the 1,000 remaining were smart, and dismounted their horses. Under Marius' guidance, they immediately camoflouged themselves by smearing the rubble and debris around the city on themselves. Ever so slowly, they maneuvered towards the enemy, crouched on the ground. At the same time, men still alive from the 6,000 crippled cavalry stealthily managed to make their way to the rivers along the city's borders. The trenches ran DANGEROUSLY close to the river, and finding shovels amongst the dead enemy, they began to chip away. Soon enough, water flooded all the trenches, drowning numerous enemy trench infantry. The survivors found themselves incapacitated due to water among other things, and they were cut down slowly but surely.

Spoiler :


Marius' next issue was not only draining and rebuilding the flooded ruins of Heliopolis, but controlling the newly-acquired near-million people. This was worsened by the fact many of these were the citizens who had fled to the suburbs of Heliopolis, and promptly returned when Marius' troops occupied the city. Even better? About 5/8 of them dared to resist the Emperor, even as he tried to repair the city, which had been left in horrible condition by Egypt's troops. But alas, he had bigger fish to fry.


Marius was surprised to find 5 machinegunners and 2 settler bands were located west of Heliopolis in the desert. It was imagined they were units that had retreated from Heliopolis. Marius made plans to eliminate them all once he had more artillery ammunition manufactured.

But the Emperor also looked south. His borders finally touched the ancient Ethiopian Kingdom. They had been at war for quite some time, due to the consequences of the Erizo-Indian(and Russian) War. Plans were made to invade Ethiopia, or at least parts of it.

With any new moves against the Egyptians not possible, Marius checked the Egyptian military's resources.

The Egyptians, as of 1528, had 3 Flak cannon units, 13 Machinegunners, 6 Riflemen, 2 Cavalry, 4 Trench Infantry, 2 Fusiliers, 5 Partisans and 1 Colonial Infantry. All these units, together, made up a force of 36 units. The Egyptians used to have nearly 60 units, to put it in perspective.

With the fall of Egypt proper, the Empire of Erizo now ruled 17% of the world's surface, and 23% of it's population. By contrast, America had 5% of the land while France wielded 9% of the population.


Spoiler :

1536 AD, the Egyptians dared to invade Scourgestralia, landing a variety of military units outside the city. But this was a blessing in disguise; more units overseas meant fewer units at home.

Marius immediately ordered several airlifts of thousands of troops to Scourgestralia. The tied down Egyptians there would make the advance into Egypt's territories that much easier.

The damnable Ottomans blocked our only route to crush the Egyptian machinegunners outside Heliopolis. Marius decided it mattered not; he now had tanks.


Marius set up a spy network in Aksum, giving him the intel on the entire Ethiopian Army: 17 units.

Marius ordered a tank assault on the Ethiopian city of Adulis along the further down the Nile. Guarded by crossbowmen, Marius expected an easy victory.

The Crossbowmen of Adulis were confused just what the hell they were fighting against. They were all massacred not only by tank fire, but artillery fire. Spearmen took up the defense as a result; Marius told his tank drivers to be careful, to which they tilted their heads.

Not a single loss, the Tanks of Erizo managed to seize the city of Adulis:

Spoiler :

The collapse of Adulis was the final sign of the decline of the Axumite Empire. All full-strength cavalry were ordered to invade Ethiopia, and with 10 years, it was expected that all of central Ethiopia would fall to Erizo's soldiers.

As a taste of what was to come, Erizo's biplanes were ordered to bomb Aksum. The primitive Aksumites refered to the airplanes as dragons summoned by the Erizoan Emperor's magic. 1,000 Ethiopian soldiers were incapacitated by the airborne bombs.


1544 AD, artillery shells rained down on Aksum, destroying it's ancient walls. Cavalry of the Erizoan Army then advanced on the city.

Without any units lost, the cavalry marched victoriously into the city, cutting down Crossbowmen and Spearmen.

Spoiler :

The capital of Ethiopia fell, and it became apparent the ancient Aksumites were drawing their last breaths. Their total army size had been reduced to a mere 12 units.

The new capital at Gondar fared far better. They managed to kill 2 Erizoan Cavalry units with minimal damage done. But the Emperor of Erizo was ambitious and continued the assault. 2 Crossbowmen were killed, but then they killed more Erizoan cavalry.

A total of 5 Erizoan Cavalry had been slain before Ethiopian Swordsmen were forced to take up the defense.

After killing the last bands of Swordsmen, the Imperial forces emerged triumphant:

Spoiler :


The bloodbath of Gondar remained fresh in the memories of Marius' soldiers, who refused to go farther for the time being. Marius was fine with that, and deployed workers to build roads to the new Ethiopian possessions. He hoped that within a decade, he could occupy the last Ethiopian city. Ethiopia only had 3 Crossbowmen remaining within it's ranks... it's time as an independent country was coming to an end.

With the fall of most of the Aksumite Empire, Marius now ruled over 18% of the world's surface and and 24% of it's population.

Marius was not done yet in Africa, however. While he made preparations for the invasion of the last bastion of the Aksumites, his artillery took up positions in Cyrenaica and rained artillery fire down on Elephantine. The city itself was already in turmoil thanks to constant Carthaginian invasions weakening the soldiers stationed there. Adding to that was the artillery of the Erizoans, who then sent in the cavalry to steal the siege from the Carthaginians.

The machinegunners of the city barely put up any fight. Most committed suicide rather than have to embrace the cloud of death that the Marian forces always brought. Shortly after, the Partisans of this city proved to not be as effective as those in other cities, being cut down with ease.

Then, Flak Cannons had to be improvised for ground combat. While they were quite effective, they were nonetheless cut down by the sheer numbers of the Erizoan cavalry. A second group of Flak cannons was soon defeated, and the city fell to the Marian forces...

Spoiler :

The people welcomed Marius's troops as liberators, and as thanks, he paid for the harbor to be reconstructed so more fisheries could nourish the people of Elephantine.

After killing another band of machinegunners with the awesome powers of his tanks, Marius had an intel report sent to him, revealing Egypt now possessed a mere 36 land units - the same they did not too long ago.

All free artillery pieces, tanks, and cavalry were ordered into the Egyptian desert, where they would slowly but surely move towards Pi-Ramesses and conquer it. Once the city fell, Egypt would be gone from North Africa forever.

Marius ordered an assault on the Egyptian fleet near Abydos in Java. While the Erizoan Navy lost 2 Cruisers, the Egyptians suffered the same fate. The Battle of Abydos was declared an indecisive battle.


1552 AD brought the sinking of an Egyptian Dreadnought.

More importantly, it brought the Battle of Lalibela. Cavalrymen and tanks charged into the ranks of Ethiopian Crossbowmen, easily slaughtering half of them. While a unit of tanks was nearly defeated by some spiritual chemical(put on the tips of the crossbows' ammunition so that God would guide them) the Ethiopians used - which was corrosive to armor - no units were lost.

Spoiler :

Tanks victoriously rolled into the last city of Ethiopia, and many Ethiopians began to cheer at the prospects of being part of a wealthy, advanced nation rather than a backwards, poverty-stricken hellhole.

With the Aksumites crushed at last, Marius victoriously reported that the Empire now ruled 25% of the world's population and 18% of it's land. The question in many of his countrymen's minds was, "Could anybody defeat Erizo?"

--- The Political Landscape ---

It was soon discovered that some of the world(in particular, the overstretched French and Turks), under the constant stresses of war and the lack of confidence in centralised governments that followed, had reverted back to a system of Feudal Monarchy as a result of growing regional autonomy. Said autonomy was a compromise between the homelands and their colonies: autonomy in exchange for troops and continued loyalty. Enlightened Despotism had collapsed in most states, who reverted back to theocratic or feudal monarchies, once more as the result of increasing decentralisation. However, Egypt, Arabia, the Netherlands, England, America, the Inca, and most importantly, Erizo itself, remained Enlightened Absolute Monarchies. The only country in the whole world without a monarchy was the Iroquois Confederacy, which operated under an oligarchic Republican system - once again, as a result of being spread so far apart, and due to the desire for local autonomy.

1560, the Egyptians used two machinegunners to block our path to Pi-Ramesses. We engaged them, and somehow, a tank was lost in the struggle. However, our forces soon rallied and crushed the Machinegunners. The Attack Force in the region was expected to be within range of Pi-Ramesses within 16 years.

1568, a Franco-Dutch War erupted for unknown reasons. It would certainly make things interesting, however; the Dutch had a global spanning empire despite their small size.

1568, more importantly, was the year where the Erizoan scientists mastered the art of splitting the atom. Marius immediately made plans to exploit such a development.

Reports stated that Egypt had been reduced to 30 units. Erizo's ships off the coast of Akkad noted that the city was weak and might soon fall to the Italian Army.

After a decent barrage of artillery and bombs, all Cavalry were ordered to attack Pi-Ramesses. The Riflemen guarding the city initially did quite well, but the Cavalry managed to muster enough force to take them down. Puny Flak cannons stood up next, but they were easily shredded.

After only two battles against Riflemen and Flak, the city of Pi-Ramesses fell.

Spoiler :

After that, an Egyptian cavalry and Partisan force outside the city was massacred. This event reduced the total size of Egypt's armed forces to 26 units.

The capture of the vast desert area around Pi-Ramesses enabled Erizo to finally control 19% of the world's land and 26% of it's population.

At the end of 1568, Marius arranged for a peace treaty with the Zulus. After so long, the Zulus and Erizoans finally were at peace once more.


1576, The Carthaginians finally made peace with the Egyptians; they saw no possible profit in continuing the war effort. Most importantly, the Americans declared war on the French, threatening the whole French Empire in the New World. In a chain of events, the Arabs soon went to war on America's side against the French, while the Japanese sided with France and declared war on the Americans.

Spoiler :

Most important about the year's beginning was Marius' announcement of the creation of the United Nations, an organisation devoted to international aid, security, peace, and humanitarianism. It would make laws and regulations for the world(that the world would ignore). All states immediately joined, thinking Marius had turned a new, peaceful leaf. Marius then announced the creation of an international police force, and the Army of Erizo would be it's primary component.

Egypt's armed forces remained at a stagnant 26 men, though now ELEPHANTS and SPEARMEN were being built instead of modern units. Soon, that count dropped to 25, after Tanks finally destroyed the machinegunners in Scourgestralia.

As the battle for Byblos began, the Egyptian Army amazingly managed to repel 1 Tank and destroy another. But the tables turned soon enough, and before long, a mix of Tanks and Cavalry were victoriously marching through the city.

Spoiler :

With Byblos conquered, the way to Hieraconopolis was secure. With only 18 units left, Egypt's empire was in it's death throes.

But news soon reached Marius that the Pharoah had been overthrown. A new ruler had taken the throne, stolen the Pharoah's chaos emerald, had the now-mortal Pharoah executed, and proclaimed himself Emperor of Mali; he claimed all the formerly-Egyptian possessions. With such a liability in power, Marius had no choice but to depose the new ruler.

The Mali Emperor would not be an easy target, however. He surrounded himself with machinegunners loyal to him, and 8 units alone guarded Hieraconopolis. But Marius was just as determined to take the city and kill a potential threat.

While all free tanks attacked Hieraconopolis, victory did not come. Only 1/4 of the city's defenders were wiped out, while 1 Tank unit was destroyed. Conquest of the "Mali Empire" would have to wait.


1584 AD, the Americans and Ottomans signed an ambitious mutual protection pact. Marius had designs on some or all of the Ottoman realm, and now knew he'd have to fight the Americans too if he wanted any of it. His response to such an alliance, however, was, "Less work to do in the future."

The Mali Empire sent Elephants against Erizo's tanks, but that unit was promptly slaughtered for such foolishness.

Most importantly...

Spoiler :

The Douseoul Project was completed in 1585. The secrets to creating a nuclear weapon were finally in Erizo's grasp, and Douseoul would build the first, to be deployed against Japan if necessary. Production empire-wide was switched to the construction and deployment of these weapons of mass destruction, which would be used against all of Erizo's enemies from that point on.

The Ottomans and France went to war in 1586. By fighting eachother, an Erizoan invasion of Turkey would be that much easier.

In a much better position thanks to open supply lines to the empire and hordes of artillery now within range, Erizo's army pressed a second attack of Hierconpolis. All units inside were softened up by artillery that left thousands dead. Without losing any tanks, all credible fighting forces were massacred by the mobile armored divisions of the Great East. Mali partisans took up positions to try and defend their re-constituted country, but their efforts were futile, and they were ruthlessly cut down. The Mali Cavalry only fought for a few seconds before trying to retreat out of the city, tank and artillery fire cutting them down to nothing.

Spoiler :

Only a few months after the fall of Hieraconpolis in mid-1586, the Emperor ordered a blitzkrieg against El-Armana, where the Mali Emperor had made his new capital after the fall of Hieraconpolis.

The assault was mixed. The first tanks in were destroyed by improvised tactics and weaponry by the Mali machinegunners. The second wave of tanks had a smashing success in killing the enemy. Then Flak Cannons showed equal ingenuity, destroying another division of tanks. After that, however, luck ran out. The Mali forces were torn through one by one, until they were eradicated and the city fell. The Mali Emperor had managed to escape, but he had left in such a hurry and so stealthily that he had forgotten one thing:

His chaos emerald!

With the conquest of El-Armana, Marius' forces soon annihilated the 2 bands of Partisan guerilla forces outside Hieraconpolis. This left Mali itself with only 6 units, half Partisans and half Riflemen.

Another Revolution broke out in the former Egyptian Empire. In fact, Erizo's Military Advisory Council reported the country's government type was now listed as "anarchy." How did this happen?

The Mali Emperor had been executed by guerillas en route to the city of Akkad - the empire's last province in all Africa. Akkadians took over the city and proclaimed their country free. The city of Abydos on Java decided to form a Confederation with the Akkadians and form a new country, Abydos-Akkad. Marius predicted that this new Confederation would end just like the one between Ellipi and Akkad(where both cities had been part of the former Babylonian Confederacy and joined forces in the aftermath of it's collapse) so many decades ago, but he agreed to meet with the new country's leaders to discuss peace.

Sure enough, Marius managed to bribe the Akkadians, and the resulting peace splintered the Confederation:

Spoiler :

With the loss of Akkad, Abydos flat out renamed itself "Egyptian Abydos", due to it's heavily-Egyptian population, and the fact it still more-or-less considered itself Egypt reborn.

A War that lasted 84 years had finally concluded. But the world now lost their patience with Marius, as he refused to hold UN elections, no longer was aligned with them against the Egyptian Empire and it's successor states, and most importantly, he now was ready to wield the most horrific weapon ever developed by man.
Turn on your Command and Conquer tracks, kids! The next World War is coming next update, and it WILL be epic! :D I suggest playing one of the 3 versions of Hell March, but any Command and Conquer track is good for war.
=== Chapter XI: The Basic Buildings Blocks of Life... and Death. OR World War II. ===

Part I (1592-1599(One Turn))

But Marius's thirst for blood was never easily quenched. He managed to set up a spy network in the American capital of Washington, D.C. As the United States blasted it's way through Iroquois cities, Marius made plans to do the same to America's cities.

The total size of America's armed forces, at the time of late 1586, was:

3 Swordsmen, 41 Pikemen, 18 Musketmen, 32 Trench Infantry, 2 Tanks, 2 Urban Militia, 1 Flak, 10 Fusiliers, 8 Cavalry, 2 Partisans, _52_ Machinegunners, 3 Armored cars, 13 Lancers, 5 Colonial Infantry, and 3 Spearmen. This was a total of 192 units.

An agent was also successfully planted in Ottoman Sogut.

They had:

21 Tanks, 1 Sipahi, 5 Janissaries, 37 Machine Guns, 3 Armored Cars, 1 Musketmen, 6 Trench Infantry, and 1 Partisan. A total of 85 units.

So altogether, our potential enemies possessed 277 land units.

Erizo, by contrast, had 468 total units, though the exact land amount was unknown. However, 80 tanks were part of Erizo's military. Not to mention 83 machineguns, 27 Trench Infantry, 58 Cavalry, 32 Colonial Infantry, and a whole variety of units.

To relieve any pressure the American front might have in the event of war, Marius airlifted and transported nearly 30 units across the Pacific. Most of these were tanks, but there were machineguns added for defensive purposes.

1592, the first atomic bombs began to come off the Assembly lines. Before using it for war, however, Marius wanted a demonstration. He ordered it's use on a horde of barbarians in the Northern Shadow Islands:

Spoiler :

The Barbarians numbered 90,000 the day the Bomb was dropped on them.

Spoiler :

As death rained down on them, they were reduced to a mere 12,000 people. Marius gloated in pure malice in his throne back in Shadking. With the use of the bomb, NOBODY could hope to stand against him.

Many people in the North Shadow islands were concerned about the bomb being deployed so carelessly, so close to their own cities. Marius promised it was the last time Erizo would test bombs on it's own territory. Workers would have to clean up the radiation that now littered the Northern Shadow islands. Before that, however, he sent out the cavalry to massacre 1/6 of the Barbarians.

--- Preparations for Invasion ---

Confident the Americans and Ottomans had likely put all their eggs - or troops - in one basket, he ordered his agents to discover the locations of all troops in both countries.

The Ottoman Empire:

Spoiler :

Sogut and Constantinople held many of their forces(6 MGs in Sogut, 4 MGs in Constantinople), and both could be struck by bombs. We would invade the border cities, which were poorly defended, with standard invasion tactics. Then bombs would be deployed against other cities. The best part was that once the bombs were deployed, all 3 sources of their oil would be cut off and their tank production would grind to a halt.

The United States:

Spoiler :

The Americans possessed quite a bit of forces, but large amounts were in the wilderness of the North. But, forces were heavily concentrated in the West, and that's where Marius would send his bombs.


But before beginning any war, Marius moved to secure new technologies and ideas. He acquired from the French the secrets of Totalitarianism, which much of the world seemed to be heading into; nearly all major powers now were in anarchy. Marius soon traded the art of splitting the Atom to the Americans in exchange for American advisors telling Erizo's pilots how to build better planes. Erizo had to part with the technology because American spies and immigrants acquired any technology any other two civilisations possessed. But Marius did not panic, no. For he knew that the Americans would soon lose their only source of uranium in a nuclear explosion.


Observing good conditions, Marius gave the go-ahead for war.

The first moves were in the Sahara. With the loss of only 1 Tank, Erizo's forces decimated 2 Ottoman Machinegunners and 1 Trench Infantry.

Then the frontlines shifted to around Akkad, where 3 Ottoman Tanks and 1 Machine Gun division awaited. WIthout losses, the Erizoan Army successfully crushed 2 Tanks and the Machinegunners.

1593, after those blows had been dealt, the American President sent an ultimatum to the Erizoan Emperor: Cease all attacks on the Ottoman Empire or face war.

Marius responded with censored profanity, and sent tanks to attack the Ottoman Empire's Janissaries along the border.

A tank was lost, but 2 Janissary Corps were massacred.


To teach the American leader a lesson, Marius sent his own ultimatum: "Surrender or face death." When the President refused, Marius deployed a bomb against the city of Oil Springs, which was under military occupation. 157,000 American soldiers inhabited the city so as to secure it for integration into the Union.

This new war caused the Greeks to declare war on us; they were allied to the Americans apparently. The same went for the Dutch.

But the assault was a smashing success nonetheless! 115,000 American soldiers were killed, and half of those who remained alive were injured by radiation poisoning.

Most notably, such an incident made America the first country ever to be attacked by a nuclear weapon in wartime. Marius laughed at the irony of that. Once more, only he got the joke.


Now, the Turkish bastards had to pay. An atomic bomb was dropped on the city of Aydin, and Marius was sure to shout "TRY BLOCKING _THIS_, MOTHER EFFERS!" as it happened, in reference to the Ottoman tendency to block Erizo's campaign paths.

This promptly caused the Arabs, English, Mongols, and Scandinavians to declare war on Erizo. Such fools. But Marius now knew he had to play more conservatively with his toys.

Spoiler :

Aydin fell in short order, regardless. But now Marius had a worldwide conflict to take care of. He was now at war with the Scandinavians, British, Americans, Mongols, Arabs, Ottomans, Dutch, and Greeks.

Luckily, most of those countries were still fighting with muskets and lances. Marius decided Arabia should taste Erizo's blade first, and he invaded the city of Basra near Lake Chad.

Spoiler :

At no losses, the city's defenders folded.

Marius concluded he could capture much of Arabic Africa in a single swoop if he tried hard enough with enough force. He ordered troops south against Fustat.

Spoiler :

While a few cavalry were lost, far more were lost on the Arab side. They also lost another one of their colonies, and the jungle and marshes of the South would provide an excellent buffer against enemy invasions. As a slight bonus, an Arab cannon was captured, and converted into an artillery unit in Byblos.

At the fall of Fustat, Erizo controlled 21% of the world's land and 29% of it's population.


Though he desired to strike deeper into the Arab colonies, Marius knew that he needed to focus on juicier targets. First, he had to destroy all Arab units wandering about Erizo's African territory. With the loss of only 1 unit, 4 Arab units were massacred.

He decided to leave other Arab units alone for the moment, and ordered an assault on Baghdad. If all went well, he could even seize the Arab capital of Mecca.

No units were lost, and the Arabs learned the price of defending a central city with only 2 units. Then, Marius decided to boldly advance on Mecca to secure the new conquests in Arabia.

As we neared the complete annihilation of Mecca's garrison, a leader emerged to command the troops, Kuang Yin.

Somehow, the Arabs managed to defeat all of our cavalry. However, we were victorious, as a Rider was available to finish off the last garrison, and thus claim Islam's Holy City for our cause.

Spoiler :

With so many new positions gained, Marius ordered a halt to all operations in Africa and Arabia until more troops were trained. Bigger fish had to be fried.


Said fish were the Ottomans and Americans. The Ottoman city of Bilecik was attacked first. It's machinegunners and tanks were weakened by attacks, and 1 tank was destroyed; Erizo lost a tank itself. Kuang Yin formed an army, and 3 tank groups piled into it to besiege the city of Bilecik.

Spoiler :

The city fell rather easily, obviously.

After that, Erizo's forces were ordered to attack Antalya in the Caucasus, so as to secure some of the Turks' oil.

While some units retreated, and about 1 or 2 Tank units were destroyed, Antalya fell.

Spoiler :

Marius soon ordered a halt to the Turkish campaign for the time being. Now, Marius said, Uncle Sam was going to get his just desserts.

Erizo's army attacked St. Louis. Without much in the way of artillery, the tanks stood alone.

Several tanks were destroyed or forced to retreat in the face of such a well-fortified enemy. However, circumstances eventually changed, and Erizo's army managed to occupy the city. 80% of the citizenry, however, soon revolted against the Emperor.

The Erizoan Empire now controlled 22% of the world's land, while also taming 31% of it's population.


Before deciding whether to continue or not, Marius knew it was imperative to find allies to beat down the Great 8.

First, he secured the Inca, so as to make sure the American positions of the Erizoan Empire remained secure. Then the Austrians to apply pressure to the Ottoman front. Then, solidarity was shown even with the Egyptians. And Carthage. Even the former Evil Empire of Russia joined our side with glee with a little Iron to sweeten the deal. Then even the Italians joined our side. And so on.

The end result was two alliances:

The Axis - The United States, Ottoman Turkey, Mongolia, the Netherlands, Scandinavia, Britain, Arabia

The Allies - Erizo, Egypt, Italy, Austria, France, Russia, Zululand, Iroquois, Japan, Carthage, Inca Empire

These two coalitions were not set in stone, however. Several of the members of each side were at war with eachother, but the alliances were based on Erizo's diplomatic perspective of the world. The whole point of the alliance, as well, was to create global chaos and thus prevent Erizo's enemies from focusing solely on it. America would be the only true threat, due to it's isolated position.


Since the whole peaceful world now loved Marius for his commitment to their cause and his gravy train of resources, the Emperor was sure he could do as he wished with his nuclear devices.

Soon, the city of Atlanta was bombed, halving it's population while also killing all soldiers inside. Cavalry easily captured it.

Then the city of Buffalo was targeted. But Marius had gotten wise, and rather than bomb the city proper, he hit the outskirts, killing all the units inside while leaving valuable infrastructure intact.

Another nuke detonated further West outside New Orleans, destroying most of the garrison. While a few cavalry were lost, the machinegunners eventually died and another city fell into Erizo's hands.

Spoiler :


With the American front extended, Marius boldly decided to invade Mongolia, the ancient target of Erizo. A nuke was dropped on the easternmost city of Kazan. Even with that, a large amount of forces remained present. Unfortunately, Marius had a large amount of nuclear bombs at his disposal, and ordered a second one be dropped.

Sure enough, a second one was all it took to destroy all forces in Kazan.

Spoiler :

With that city completely and utterly owned, Marius turned his attention West again. He declared the Ottoman front to be open once more.

Two nukes were detonated outside Yenisehir. The forces inside were greatly reduced, and the city soon fell. Then, bombs were dropped on Bursa further northeast. A tank was lost while traversing the radioactive wasteland, but sure enough, the city fell and the Turks lost their last source of oil. Their own tank forces would be crippled without fuel. They also lost their chief source of uranium, preventing them from ever building nuclear weapons themselves.

Then, in Central Asia, the Turks lost yet another city to nuclear warfare. And that quickly became two; the Turks were banished from Central Asia.

Spoiler :

The Ottoman capital was shielded by merit of having mountains around it. However, the Turks had lost quite a bit of their empire, and much of that former empire was covered in radioactive crap.

Marius turned his attention back to Arabia. With some spare tanks and several atomic bombs, he was sure he could easily occupy most, if not all, of the country.

Medina fell without any casualties due to being substantially weakened. Najran's garrison was completely wiped out by a bomb, leaving the city open to the invaders.

Then Kufah, leaving Damascus as the last free Arab city in Arabia proper. That city, too, fell with no losses on Erizo's side. An entire front had been sealed.

At the end of all those grand offensives, was a surprise attack on the Viking city of Odense.

Spoiler :

No units were lost, and the city fell, knocking one of the eight Axis Powers out of commission. As well, all the treaties we signed were discontinued as the terms involving the Scandinavians no longer applied.


With the collapse of so many provinces into Erizo's hands, the Emperor now commanded a whopping 26% of the land and 36% of the population! Short of American and it's allies developing atomic bombs, there was not much hope for Erizo's enemies.

Marius made plans to turn Odense into a key base in Europe. It would field numerous atomic bombs against the English homeland, destroying it. Then, victorious Colonial Infantry and other units would march from the city - after being airlifted - to the island, conquering them for Erizo.

In little more than a year, the destructive power of Erizo's new weapon had enabled the Empire to capture ungodly amounts of territory on so many fronts.
At this rate and with enough atom bombs it should only takes a few more turns for the rest of the Axis nations to fall to Erizo.
We're actually 2 more turns in the future, and I'll say large chunks of America, Mongolia, and all of the Ottoman Empire in Asia/Europe/Africa is now ours. :D
Dude, you should change the name of the game from Civ 3 Conquests to Civ 3 Pwn the World. :lol:

Thank you!

To everyone else, I'll have a few updates coming soon. Let's just say diplomacy has officially gone out the window...
What's your definition of 'soon'?
