What does it mean to be a War Monger?

 

By conmcb25 on a hill overlooking Animal Farm

Basically it means in a nutshell that if you are not killing something, then you are not happy ;) I pretty much decided in this game that I had enough with diplomacy, building, and pretty much being nice overall. So I decided it was time to get mean.

 

What does that mean really? Well, for example during team discussions when one of the builders suggests we go after religion early, you respond: “Screw religion, that’s a bunch of builder crap, when are we going to build some units and go whack something?”

 

And for this game and Team Apocalypto, and fortunately for me at least, the team didn’t have a lot of options. We were basically stuck on a peninsula just 8 tiles from our human neighbor and no AI teams in sight. After a couple of innovative and pretty wild peaceful ideas were thrown around, we pretty much came to the conclusion that war was inevitable to secure our future. The whole time of course I was asking: “When we are going to build some warriors and invade already.” :cool: Heck, I had to recruit GodKing another notorious baby killer to make sure I had another firm deadly voice on the team. :)

 

Right now I am sitting on a hill maintaining watch on Animal Farm, wondering how this war will end. At the same time hopeful that we will kill the Swine, yet at the same time feeling sorry for their team if we do. But that’s the nature of CIV, it’s an elimination game. This was going to happen sooner or later. And lucky for me, the Warmonger, it happened sooner. :D The best part is not knowing, how it’s going to turn out, until it’s done. Welcome to my world. Welcome to the Apocalypse.

Only thing I have is that the word "hopeful" is typically one word, not two. :D

 

The other thing is that we might want to not use the 8 tile distance, and instead say something like "spitting distance" to keep the specifics away from the vikings.

Changed hopeful (why does it only have one "l"????), and we already told them we were 8 tiles away, thats the dispatch we sent to them right after they made Swine contact and they basically never responded.

 

Post 11 in Official correspondence, I just double checked to be sure ;)

Beta's can use a bit of editing for format, else it looks good. Not sure how that final youtube heavy metal thing will go over, but people can always stop it if they don't like.

 

Rather large first edition. Very cool.

I actually liked the two kids fighting video.

 

If appropriate we should try and sneak that into the next edition.

Uno - what timing were you thinking about for the next edition?

I was thinking of polling on just that.

 

Minimum of 2 weeks. But, I'm thinking monthly.

I guess it really depends on how many others get involved in contributing stuff.

Monthly

 

I think two weeks is going to be too aggressive, you wont get the content.

Whenever you get around to it is my thunk. Honest, if you have enough in 1 week for a full edition, publish. If you need to wait 6 weeks, then wait. RL>game, etc.

I just noticed the bizaar timing of Swine death.

 

0AD is the first year post-swine. Gotta come up with a way to work that in...

:lol: I thought about that, and it would have been nice if we had actually finished them off on 0ad, but I wasn't about to wait another turn for it.
