    Isabella is disapointed with the hinduisim god who deserted her and gave the victory to france. therefore she hates him and will no found any religion and fight the people who adopt hindu.

    Before they go to Free Religion? Whew, that sounds tough ... er ... a real opportunity to improve my game. Sign me up.

    I'd like to try Monarch, I've yet to win a Monarch game on my own.

    That was the problem i was seeing, too.

    We could go with a couple Spiritual civs as opponents. That would assure some Hinduism. Though, it would be a poor variant, too, if only one civ was Hindu.

    let's see if we can add on to this. Maybe we should Conquer anyone w/oen of the 3 first religions. OR, we must hold ALL the holy cities...or raze them ALL :mischief:

    So far, we've got:

    Leader: Isabella of the Spanish
    Map: Highlands
    Difficulty: Monarch
    Victory: All enabled, but only Domination is a win.

    Variant Rules:
    1) We may NOT found any religion, nor adopt one EVER!
    2) We must adopt Free Religion immediately upon discovering Liberalism adn stay there for the rest of the game (this may necessitate building the UN)

    ok, we must raze all of the holy cities and we must conquest the founder of the most popular religion before free religion.

    for fun, should we consider playing as teams with an AI along with 3 other teams of 2?? I'm my mind, i'm thinking either JC, America (from teh last game) OR teamed up with France (since the pretender king was such a fan of izzy, he let her settle that city).

    It could be called: The Unholy Alliance (along with another civ) adn have each team have one spritual civ in it. If not, that's fine with me.

    And so, i think the consensus (since who knows when sprite will get warlords) then is Vanilla Civ then?? If we're ready to go, then I'll roll up a start tonight (or someone else can do it if they have access to Civ before then).

    Vanilla, and i prefer also no team, there's another SG with a team, and anyway, we dont need the AI to help us win ^^.
    I can play now, so if you're all ok then pholk - open the new thread.

    Everything looks fine and I think its best that you play 30 turns immidiately.
    One thing not mentioned - what should the gamespeed be?
