Cool Second Hungry Old Beast - Spoiler

I referred to Civ4 as an old beast on the other site, but named the find-opponent-thread "Hungry for more", so in order not to confuse, this is both.



The lake can already give me three commerce, because of my adorable financial trait. But I'm gonna do the early gamble and build a worker first to get those sheep ASAP.

I met Stapel, who is obviously in the east, and we agree to a peace deal until Christ is born, which can be cancelled ten turns in advance.

My worker-first gamble paid off and I will soon have a max sized capital. After the warrior I will start building the Pyramids until it hits size five, then build a settler. Once the settler is done, I'll continue building the Pyramids. Only a civ with the industrious trait can prevent me from getting that.

Decided to build another worker when Groningen got to six pop and the corn was irrigated. Pyramids will continue after that.

Meanwhile I met socralynnek in the north:


The map is funny. I have a land strip towards the north. There's only room for 1.5 cities to the west and I'm not too sure how far I can expand to the east. I don't want to squash Stapel too much, otherwise he'll might feel forced to cancel our peace treaty.

We playing rather rapidly with about 1.5 - 2 turns per day. This time the pyramids are mine.

In the same turn I discovered iron working, which I was anxiously awaiting, because there is no copper as far as I have discovered, which admittedly isn't much. And thank god, it's right in my backyard!



My room for expansion is limited, but there is more to discover in the north. Socralynnek - I like starting a sentence with his name, because then I have an excuse to spell his name properly, that is, with a capital S - is somewhere north. I met a workboat of his there.



Meanwhile I haven't talked with Stapel, nor have I seen him. He's researching sailing is not building up units. Since he is my only neighbour, I only have three warriors. Now I'm building my first archer, which I'll need against the barbarians; shouldn't take long before they arrive.

While I'm allowed to develop unchallenged, ProPain and Killer are in a very early war, of course initiated by Killer (as ProPain told me). But you can see the result: Killer is rock bottom in score.

Killer got eliminated on new year's eve, the poor bloke. According him his starting position left him no choice but to try an early war, but that backfired.

Now back to my realm, which is doing quite amazingly, if I may say so myself. I built the pyramids before I could really put it to use. But thanks to that, I got a great engineer exactly on the same turn as literature was invented. The earlier I have the great library, the earlier I get +12 science per turn, so there was little contemplation required on how to use that great engineer. Besides, with marble in my territory I have a good shot as the mausoleum of Mausollos as well, so it might be good to postpone golden ages until then.



Meanwhile Beorn deployed two axemen next to Phrygian, the barbarian city in the north. He asked for open borders earlier, which I refused, because he was nowhere in sight yet. He understood, then a few turns later he offered open borders again. I assumed I must've been very close to him, so I accepted. But no, still no sight of Beorn's land. I'll avoid contact with him and take Phrygian by force by surprise if he keeps it. Although it probably won't be much of a surprise.



The shape of the continent is funny. I can also see some coast west of Phrygian, so if I build a city on the tip, I should be able to hop to the next island or continent without needing astronomy.
