T-Hawk, Rome did build the great lighthouse.

In 280AD.

They got that settlement by normal means. The passage was makeable with a regular galley.

Charis, you mention that the settlement impacted the meeting of the other civs. Actually, it did not. I met them (at least Rome and England) with a curragh on the island SE of the capitol. That boat successfully suicided to the other continent and met the portugese.

The settlement also didn't really delay my GA much. I would have put some troops on boats and taken the island. That island was too close to the capitol not to control.

  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.
