It is year 870 AD, in a planet very much similar to Earth, yet not identical. For many years, the Rus people were wandering around the lands known as "Eurasia", not too far from the newly developed cultural centers in Europe, like Frankia, or Alemannia, but more close to them than the mysticist nations of the East, like China. Following the examples of the previously nomads Goths, Franks, Burgundians, and many more, their chief leader has decided to, finally, settle down and build settlements, to ensure that the Rus people will exist in many years to come. The initial settlement was called Moskva, named after the Muskovi mountain range at the northwest. It is yet on their hands, to ensure they get established, and why not, go even further....possibly to a new world... Welcome to the 2nd RFC RAND succession game, and first as part of the SG subforum! In this game, the players will attempt to do their best and write history as the, arguably, most important Eastern European nation ever; Russia, from the time it was an uncivilized kingdom somewhere at the north to when it became a world power! For those who don't know, RFC RAND is something like an Earth randomizer, taking concepts from Earth simulator RFC like real time civ-spawn and stability. Anyway, our poor victims glorious roster consists of: AnotherPacifist Jusos2108 DangerBird youknowwhatitis BurnEmDown onedreamer nody And so what am I doing there? Being the host, doing a bit of storytelling, setting aims for the players and annoying you to hell. Gamewise, each player will play a number of turns (10), and will post the save there for the next player, to play his turnset, etc. I think that we should give each player 96 hours for a turnset, but since this is my first SG, I am open to opinions. And here is the starting situation. I am sorry that the capital is already settled (I did not do that!), but I autostarted it as Ethiopia, and saved just before Russia spawned, then switched to Russia. This way, I can see what the Russian AI does, by playing the save through and thus create the quests, which will be, of course, more difficult than what the AI does. It will also be a bit of an RPC game. Spoiler : AnotherPacifist, the burden honor to begin it is yours! No goals set yet. EDIT: Save to be added, since my organization sucks. See, I already started hell annoying you. And the game hasn't started yet.
