Response to Epic ThirtyOne - Potluck Brunch - Roman Results


... finished.

I'll have a report (such as it is) up later, when I get some time to go over my savegames.

My game was "The Fall and Rise of the Roman Empire".

I'd forgotten how to play this game (especially with barbarians!) for the first few hours. It got so bad I was once at two cities (!) when my opponents were pretty much at full expansion.

And yet, I won. And not even a classic gamestyle for me, either; I actually FOUGHT! Like, as in, WARS! Real ones, not just fake modern age rollovers! (I don't know what it is about the Romans, but I always fight real wars when I'm playing as them, and almost never when I'm not...)

  Tourney Mission Statement:
Existing Civ III tournaments, contests and group events are universally plagued by elements or shortcomings that lead often to compartmentalized results. Spoilers and privileged info is readily made available while games are still in progress. The game itself remains in flux through a patching process. The scoring system measures only a few elements of the gameplay. We at Realms Beyond are not satisfied to settle for these conditions and compromises.

The Realms Beyond is home to gamers who go beyond the norm, who creatively add depth to good games to make them better, who choose to set our own added limits to gameplay for the purpose of increasing challenge, varying gameplay flavor, and getting more out of the games we love. We discard the usual standards and venture into realms beyond, where we share our passion for gaming with one another, and with those who are like-minded.

We develop and refine our tournament as we go, with the help of the players. Each game is subject to rules, but we keep the framework light, the emphasis on excellence, the focus on the spirit of the game. Come and play. Share, compare, teach, and learn.
