As you might be aware, I've recently redownloaded Civilization 2, one of the top three most addicting games ever created (the others being Minecraft and WoW). It brought up a lot of old memories and a quick search through my downloaded Xanga blog revealed that I'd already blogged about a game of Civilization 2. So enjoy this Timewalking Archive Trap from May of 2007.
Note from 2007: This one's going to be quick with very few run-throughs for editing. I've got a lot of things going on and I don't particularly feel like blogging at the moment.
Reinforcements began arriving in Pisae at regular intervals. The corps of engineers had proven their worth, and came to prove an even greater value as they began--with stolen Roman plans--to develop a 'rail' from Mow to Pisae. Across the uninterrupted deserts and plains of the Persian Bottleneck's wide Eastern Arm, they constructed a rail the likes of which would remain unrivaled into the 21st Century.
However, Jade Falcon exploration of the rest of the world did not stop. Even as Night Gyrs in Southern Rome turned back armies against 4:1 odds, antiquated Jade Falcon units traveled past the salt jungles north of Mow and the southwestern Persian Bottleneck to make contact with the Egyptians and Persians respectively.
The Persians were easily befriended and after some cajoling, they even shared their impressive world political knowledge with the Jade Falcons, revealing the Eastern "Persian Egg" and its neighbor the Western "German Egg," which bordered--by way of the Teutonic Sea--the easternmost reaches of the Jade Falcon Clan, Hellas.
The Egyptians, like the Greeks, posessed marvelous cities, happy citizens, a peaceful demeanor (except for their ubiquitous navy), and technological wonders to rival those of the rest of the world combined. Satisfied to broach no further into either neighbor, the Jade Falcons were content to funnel Night Gyrs across The Great Project and into the Roman lands to support the freedom fighters there. Allied forces even captured two more cities, Vii and Cumae, before a little thing happened.
The Egyptians demanded tribute.
