I’m writing this in real time. Awesome, right? This is also my first try of screenshots, so remember I’m a newbie.
I will be going for a conquest victory. Those are always fun… 😈
Edition: Vanilla (I got all the expansion packs in a gold pack, but I want a classic game)
Map: Pangaea (for a nice, easy game)
Sea Level: Medium
Map Size: Small(Duel is too easy)
Civilization: Aztec (the best civ for a conquest victory)
Diffuculty: Settler (the easiest level; I have never won on chieftain :sad:)
I’ll send the scout to… scout, and the settler to found my first city.
Oh, a goodie hut! It gave me… another settler. Darn.
Tenochtitlan has been founded!
I’ll build a warrior in Nateopolis, Then I’ll move my other settler into my borders.
Oh, techs! I’ll research… Masonry! (please forgive my bad writing… :roll:)
Two turns pass. Hi, Tokugawa.
I cant do much other than declare peace and send him away, so I do that. Now, I need a break. I was going to do save draft, but I think it will be cooler to make regular updates. So if anyone comes across this quaint little blog on the ends of time and space (hey, I’m the first result on google!), please comment! its getting lonely on planet Nathan (or Ohio, whichever you prefer).
UPDATE: OK, lets continue.
I got masonry!
And the borders of Nateopolis have expanded!
I’ll research archery, and I think now is a good time to send out my settler.
Two turns later and my settler has arrived.
I build a warrior in the city, and continue.
I finish archery and start animal husbandry, and someone founds Buddhism. Isabella’s probably in this game…
Next turn, I meet Qin Shi Huang of China!
Immediate annihilation is bad, so I declare peace… for now!
Immediately afterward, I meet Julius Caesar.
This guy seems nice enough to spare for awhile, so I do. Besides, his praetorian’s would crush me like a grape.
Animal husbandry finishes, I start bronze working, Nateopolis’s warrior finishes and I start building a barracks. and now… another break. If there are any Civ fans reading this blog, feel free to suggest a course of action.
UPDATE: I have bronze working!
And I can adopt slavery!
I adopt it and get to work on iron working.
A few turns later, I meet Gandhi of India!
Just the usual, peace and continue.
A few presses of the enter key later…
Iron working! That means I can build Jaguars and start my quest for world domination… 😈
Of course, I need to know where my targets are, so I’ll research writing to get one step closer to paper and maps. The open borders will help, too.
Just realized that Gandhi got Buddhism, and I’ve meet all the civilizations possible in a small map, so there’s no Spanish. Darn… I hoped I would get to crush them. Anyway…
I have writing!
Now to start mathematics and sign open borders with everyone…
Now, another break. Like, comment, etc.
