I'm thinking of starting a new game with some special rules. To start the game field would look something like this (Props to helio for the format):
Map Size: 12 / 14 / 16
Map Type: Great Rivers / Acheron's Locks (Random number generator has spoken) / Dante's Peak / The Lake of Fire / Infernal Divide /
Place of Power: None / Rare / Uncommon / Common
Game Length: 10 / 15 / 20 / 25
Infernal Census : Yes / No
Rectification Content : Yes / No
The idea is to play with a custom rule (not game enforced obviously): No excommunications. With the only exception of an event based xcom.
This means no taking panda, so it would be a pure prestige race. Common pops and small map would mean more battles for them. Expect a lot of deceit, high ranks and political intrigue. Playing for keeps will become quite important.
We need three other players.
Tikey (Emperor Zurg)
Battleprogrammer Spike (Ashaka)
Raptor_X (Marquis Zabrahxx)
Rinox (Who could he be?!)
Kelron (Mr Percy)
Lacessit (Mephisto's cat)
