I had my worst start and couldn't recover. Fractal map, Otto, Noble. Bronze working-no copper. Iron working-no iron. Animal Husbandry-no horses. Rush to Feudalism to get longbowman for defense. Whew made it. Next, shorten the story here, no coal, no oil...bah, no ones trading it to me either. Can't live on Janissaries alone. Time to retire. Anyone else have a bad start? Next time, going to restart after I see there is no copper and no iron.
