Days must be much longer over there, I still don't have the save file. And more then 1 turn every 2 weeks would be nice. :)

Still don't have it either. And I agree, we should try and stick to at LEAST one turn in 2 days.

Well I don't think anyone else would have it yet, I still don't have any save later then from the 7th.

In war, one should seek to take and hold the high ground. From there, the enemy's movements are clearly visible, and he will struggle just to reach you, let alone fight you. High orbit is the highest ground there is.

I have crabs.

Err, that is my fishing boats have them. :)

Nice to get a turn, and an interesting one. For one, I now have Hinduism. (I was thinking bigglesworth might have been going for Buddhism, since he's the only one who started with mysticism.)

And it seems we are not the only civilization in this world. Our warriors have traveled far, and have seen in the distance where the Roman empire lay, waiting. Interesting times lie ahead. :)

Salvete, travelers! I'm sure you will find Rome hospitable and pleasant.

My turn is over. Sent off the next one to Fredericus of Germania.

Our game is in my hands, I haven't had a chance to play it yet. Should be able to do so when I get home tonight (if I'm not busy having sex with groupies, doing drugs, etc).

Well if the leaders on the front page are accurate, then of those, only Saladin(you, not Jack :)) would start with the Mysticism tech, giving you a head start if you went for religions first, and buddism is quicker to research than hinduism. http://www.civfanatics.com/civ4/referen ... icker.html And I started next to water, with a resource in it, starting with the fishing tech, and the financial trait, which I figured put me in the 2nd best position to grab a religion, since I could delay grabbing worker techs while I built my fishing boat, so I went for hinduism.

Although last I checked, other than me, no one had any religions yet, so depending on what other people are doing, there may be someone else nearing it. :) Although at this difficulty level I suppose they're not as important, since happiness usually isn't much of a limiter early in the game as it can be on higher difficulty settings.

gg @ Sora for decent strategic planning.

So... I'm going to be on vacation from Friday-Sunday. So, if I get the next turn sometime in that period, I won't be able to get to it 'til very late on Sunday. KF

This is fine, as long as we manage nearly a turn a day normally. We really should try to speed it up. I play most of my turns within an hour of receiving them.

Well, I do have a guitar. A standard Strat. But I don't really play much any more... I'm so out of practice that my hands won't work their magic, which is frustrating because my brain remembers everything. If I can get past that hurdle, though, I'd be all over the guitar again.

Save is still with me, things have been a bit busy on my end lately (the replies here are typed out while I'm at work). I'll try to have the willpower to do laundry after I get back from work at like 1 am tonight, and if I can manage that, I'll do my turn then.

If you want out then you can retire when it's your turn again (from the in-game menu).

Soul Eater, one of the coolest anime shows I've watched. Revolves around a school of warriors and "human weapons" who train to seek and destroy people who are on the verge of turning into demons and bringing about the Second Coming. Slick fighting sequences, awesome weapons, great characters, and a dark, twisted style that seems to ask the question: "What if Tim Burton made an anime series?"
