This SG is inspired by our win on Prince as Louis of France and Dumas’ The Man in the Iron Mask (obviously!), & the subsequent 1998 film of the same name. From wikipedia: In this game, we play as Napoleon, and imagine him to be the rightful ruler of France, the one that was locked up by the Pretender. Leader: Napoleon of France. Difficulty: Prince Map: Lakes Size: Standard Opponents: 6 random Victory Conditions: All Enabled* * see variant rules Variant Rules: 1. We start the game as the Pretender-King, and he is a weak monarch. This means that: 1) we must accede to every request made to us, regardless of the nature; 2) we may not start a war w/anyone; and 3) if attacked, we can raze, but not conquer, cities. 2. We NEED Musketeers and Gunpowder ASAP (no direct beelining required). [A slingshot is encouraged.] 3. Once our first Musketeers are built, the Pretender-King is overthrown, and the true ruler of France takes the throne…and he is PISSED. We must immediately declare war on any 3 opponents. We may not make peace until they are destroyed (see Optional Sub-quests). 4. Once Gunpowder is reached, we may research normally, except that we can not research Rifling until AFTER we have destroyed our first 3 opponents AND entered the Industrial Age. 5. Finally, although all victory conditions are enabled, France may win by Conquest ONLY. OPTIONAL sub-quests: These quests are for the four musketeers of Dumas' novel. If we complete any of these, we are able to declare peace w/any one civ for up to 30 turns. If that Civ declares on us before the end of that time, any extra turns are lost. a) Aramis prays a lot. To complete this quest, we must found Christianity. b) Porthos loves wine. To complete this quest, we must control at least half of the world’s wine. c) Athos is a silent brooder. To complete this quest, we must be the first to research Banking AND immediately revolt to Mercantilism (thus closing off any OB w/any civs we're friendly w/). d) D'Artagnan fights. To complete this quest, we must be the first Civ to eliminate another.
