escChat in World Government (Civilization IV)

  1. Estêvão Did you ever know that you're (JW) my hero

    I have started a game of Civilization IV with 16 nations, each one being represented by a member of our chat. The current year in the game is approx AD 1460. I picked the nations by the location of each member (or in one person's case, their political affiliation).

    Here are the nations involved. They are listed by: Chatter name, Historical leader, Nation...

    James - Leopold II - Belgium

    Estêvão - Yushchenko - Ukraine
    Martin - Christian IV - Denmark
    Mina - Alexander - Greece
    Liam - Curtin - Australia
    Aaron - Llywelyn - Wales
    Tomas - David - Israel
    Luís - Lincoln - America
    jw - Henry VIII - England
    Jesús - Franco - Spain
    Júlio - João II - Portugal
    Nick - de Witt - Holland
    Almila - Atatürk - Turkey
    Adam - Robert the Bruce - Scotland
    Anette - Gustav - Sweden
    Nessie - Kim Jong-il - DPRK

    Current Religions
    Christianity: Belgium, Ukraine, Wales, Portugal, *Latvia, DPRK
    Hinduism: Greece, America, Spain, Turkey, Sweden
    Buddhism: Denmark, Israel, Holland, Scotland
    Judaism: England
    Athiest (No State Religion): Australia

    Vassal States
    Nations that are currently under the control of other nations:
    Holland - controlled by Denmark
    Turkey - controlled by Greece
    Scotland - controlled by Belgium
    Sweden - controlled by Belgium
    DPRK - controlled by Wales
    *Latvia - originally overseas cities of Portugal. Granted independence by João II, now a Vassal of Portugal

    Current cities (colonies) in the New World:
    Ukraine (5): Donetsk, Odessa, Zaporizhizhia, Lugansk, *Epirus (native village of new world captured by Ukraine)
    Denmark (3): Horsens, Vejle, Greve

    At this point in the game, it is one of the rare times where there are NO nations at war with anyone. Some notable wars of the past:

    Sweden vs. Belgium: back and forth until Belgium captured Stockholm. Sweden now a vassal of Belgium.
    Wales vs. all non-Christian nations: everyone that is not Christian seems to keep declaring war on Wales. However, all attempts usually end in truce and no cities changing sides.
    Ukraine vs. DPRK: Long, drawn-out war that resulted in Ukraine capturing 4 of the 7 DPRK cities, including both the capital Pyongyang and Seoul. Before Ukraine could finish off DPRK, the Apostolic Palace (led by Pope Llywelyn) convened a vote of all Christian nations that forced Ukraine and DPRK to immediately end the war. Ironically, DPRK would become a vassal state of Wales.

    New Game

    Ok...it's almost to the point of declaring Leopold II of Belgium the winner of this game. I am thinking of starting a new one. In the new game, people would be grouped into teams (a.k.a. "Alliances"). Since the world map generated is different each time a new game is started, the world does not look like earth. Also, there is no guarantee that Alliance members will be located next to each other.

    As of right now we currently have 16 civilizations (see original post). I already plan to include Sheep as the leader of the Sami civilization, Dave will probably be the leader of the Celts, Jonny is now India, and Petar will be Serbia

    This brings us to 20 civilizations. Here are the problems:

    Problem #1: Jóhanna wants to be included, however Iceland is not an available civilization to choose from.

    Problem #2: I think 18 is the max number of civilizations to begin a game with.

    If the max number of civilizations is 18, I may split the nations into two "semis" with 10 in each. The top 5 would then compete in a "final".

    So, the main reason for this post is to get suggestions on who would like to be teamed up? I have a couple of suggestions:

    Juche Alliance: England, Portugal, DPRK, Scotland
    Bloc-Voting Alliance: Ukraine, Greece, Turkey, India
    Scandi Alliance: Sweden, Denmark, Sami, Celts
    Spautch Alliance: America, Spain, Belgium, Holland

    In this scenerio, I would need to leave out Australia and Wales unless I can add two more civs to make all the alliances even.

    Ofc I have a comment:P Holland should join the Juche alliance:P
  13. Liam Esterran.

    It's not like I seemed to do much last game anyway.
  14. Estêvão Did you ever know that you're (JW) my hero

    actually Liam, in the current game I have, Australia is the only country (other than Ukraine) to establish colonies in the new world. For now, Australia is not in the gun sights of Ukraine...but it all could change if Australia forges an alliance with Turkey ;)
