Round 1:

Chief CornMaster I of the Roman Tribe (4000BC - 1200BC)

The day dawns on the Roman Tribe. CornMaster the First has pushed the tribe elders into settling down instead of roaming in search of the herds. “From a central settlement, we can build our culture, educate our children, and provide for our people.” A healthy supply of gold and food resources also sweetened the deal.

With the settling of Roma, the Roman Civilization was born. Brave warriors began to explore the country side for other signs of civilization.

3120BC, a great work boat was constructed to make the fishing waters off the coast more productive.

3000BC, the Hurrian tribe was discovered in the vast Southern lands.

2360BC, with the discovery of writing, our elders believe it will be possible to communicate with other peoples with similar abilities.

2120BC, our northern warrior is attacked by barbarians to the north, and the Malinese have formed from the lowly Hurrian tribe.

1960BC, a Byzantine scout was destroyed by our archer at Roma. The rest of the Byzantine army has disappeared in the western hills.

1920BC, the Great Roman Road is complete to Copper Ridge. Military advisors urge the connection of this read to Great Copper Deposit. Belief is that this material may be useful for the construction of armour and weapons.

1680BC, as expected, the mining of Great Copper Deposit has resulted in great quantities of copper for weapons and armour.

1640BC, a great quest to educate the population has taken place, and Libraries are under construction in all Roman cities.

1360BC, Great Southern Warrior was attacked by a group of Lions, but fought them all off and gained valuable experience in forest combat. Roma built the first library of the empire, and has started training Axemen.

Round 3:

Lord Fisher the First, Kingdom of Roma (125AD - 520AD)

Even before Lord Odin had taken his final breath, the end was nearing on his family line. Shortly after taking power, Lord Odin allowed the destruction of historical fishing grounds. Over time, the resentment of the large fishing class grew, as Odin neglected the sea. Nobles in the fishing community had been plotting for hundreds of years, waiting for their opportunity to seize power. That day has now come. With aid from the ancestors of the early Chiefs, Lord Fisher the First was able to wrangle power from Odin II and take over control of the Roman Empire. “Our first order of business is to return Romans to the Sea. Our destiny is not on this continent, but out there, over the ocean. The wars under Lord Odin did nothing but to further cut us off from lands to our south, north and west. Only the Sea to the east can lead to our expansion, and ultimate freedom from oppression from our neighbors!”.

With this order, Odin II was exiled from Roma, and settled in the mountain side near Nintendu 64. This cleared the way for Lord Fisher to begin his rein.

125 AD: Lord Fisher presses for the cancellation of the monument to Lord Odin. More conservative members of the kings advisors pushes not to offend the still strong support from former Odin followers.

350 AD: Exploration of the Empire of Mali begins to the south. The Ethiopians found Lalibela to the north of Copper Ridge.

375 AD: In an attempt to appease the fishermen class, Lord Fisher begins construction of another work boat. “The current state of ocean faring technology is appalling, all we can build is fishing boats!” Lord Fisher has been reported as saying. “I'm not sure if I can bring forth the reform I so dearly want. Military conquest may be our only means of survival.”

425 AD: To appease the reformers, Lord Fisher commands the work boat to explore the south coast. “Perhaps that can buy some time before a revolt.”

475 AD: Old Man Bobby has passed in Roma. He was well known for his extensive knowledge of the world, and his great library. He has donated all of his materials to the Library of Roma, and with the funding of a new wing, this should make the Library a greater place of research! No new lands have been discovered to the south by the ocean, or land expeditions. Lord Fisher recalls the work boat and continues his policy of food storage facilities for all cities.

520 AD: With no progress on ocean exploration, and a strict policy of population control in Copper Ridge, a revolt has broken out across the nation. CornMaster the Second promises a new direction for the Kingdom of Roma and gains power.

CornMaster will have none of this, and banishes the party. With the completion of the settling party in Copper Ridge, work begins on War Elephants.

700 AD: Rumor has reached us that the Chinese Civilization has been destroyed. Asked to comment, King CornMaster II responds “They must have been weak and unprepared. This leaves the invention of fireworks up to us!”. Baffled by the comment, workers go about their day.

720 AD: The first Forge in constructed in Roma. This should greatly increase our productivity. Confucianism has spread to Ethiopian lands. Asked to comment, CornMaster II responds, “I'm not sure what impact that will have on us at this time.”

760 AD: Our first work boat departs for the future site of Corningrad. Work begins on reinforcements for the core of the Empire.

780 AD: Zara visits Roma to ask for an open borders treaty. Content to respect the wishes of his predecessors, CornMaster II denies the request. Gandhi, from the Indian City State also makes his way to Roma. CornMaster II greets his emissary, however, there is little to learn from the Indians at this time. Gandhi's open borders request is rejected. CornMaster II announcements a new policy of promoting cultural growth of the Roman people.

800 AD: CornMaster II begins construction of a huge monument to himself in Roma. It is like 3 times bigger then the Monument to Lord Odin.

(Pilgrimage to Corningrad - Right)

820 AD: CornMaster II begins to suffer from a strange medical condition that causes sudden loss of strength. This disease is dubbed CTD or Crash to Desktop. Its cause is thus far unexplained, but as CornMaster II awakens, he seems to have lost some of his recent memory, and believes that it is still 760AD. CornMaster II relives his last few orders over the next few days, convinced that time has been set back.

840 AD: Finally, it is 840 AD. CornMaster II stops his reorders, and hasn't suffered any relapses of CTD, but the whole experience has been very demanding on him, and his staff. His advisors convince him to take a break, and visit the new Corningrad city site. The advisors set up an advisory panel to search for a new ruler, and rule in the Kings stead.

Advisory Panel A, Kingdom of Roma (840AD - 1000AD)

860 AD: Work continues around Corningrad. Construction of a Monument begins. A Monument to the Advisory Panel.

Not wishing to anger the Ethiopians, the Advisory Panel agrees to the demand. “At least that will keep them off our back for a while”, Spineless the First was quoted as saying. Construction continues on weapons of war, just as CornMaster II policy of cultural expansion begins to pay off with the discovery of Aesthetics.

900 AD: Zara again visits Roma, this time demanding the secrets of Construction. Spineless I was going to cave to this demand as well, but the Advisory Panel agreed that it was too important to give away. This knowledge would allow the construction of great war machines. The demand is rejected. The great Colossus is constructed in Roma. This 1000 foot tall ode to awesomeness now sits over the harbour entrance to Roma.

920 AD: The Advisory Panel decides that connecting Corningrad to the Core is essential to good relations with the outlying cities.

Who will these low life’s chose as the Republic’s new leader?

Round 7:

General Ricardo Awesomeo, Roman Republic (1755AD - 1820AD)

The 'Great Chaos' that followed the assassination of Timothy I lead to a period of instability in the empire. Through this chaos, hundreds of lives were lost in rioting against the government. People had lost faith in their elected leaders, and democracy in general, with the cowardly assassination of Timothy.

From the ashes of the chaos came General Ricardo Awesomeo who was able to unite the army against the senate, and seize total power. A Republic in name only, Rome was now ruled by one man: “Our first order of business is to try and shut down some of these wars. Four nations at once is too many, we need to focus on our nearest enemies first.”

Turn 261 (1755AD): Ricardo begins by retooling a chariot stationed in Istanbul with plans to send it to the front and protect our horse pasture near Roma from the English.

Later that day, General Ricardo contacts Elizabeth of the English to inform her of the new order in Rome. Ricardo pushes an agenda of peace with Elizabeth, and is able to get a peace treaty, plus 100 gold in reparations from the English. “This will allow us to focus on our neighbors to the north.”

Ricardo also contacts Mansa Musa of the Malinese and discusses a war pact against the Ethiopians. For 315 gold, Mansa agrees to attack Zara. When asked why bring an ally in the fight, Ricardo explains: “I can understand why some of you would question this treaty. You would prefer we have all of the glory of Ethiopian conquest to ourselves. The reasons for this treaty are simple. Our forces are depleted from our initial attack. Bringing fresh troops to the fight should quickly end the war. Our troops will still be present to capture the main cities, and if that fails, I have a secret weapon to win the hearts and minds of the new Mali subjects. Also, the Mali has a strong army that can rival Rome, if it is engaged in combat, it should weaken and give us the balance of power should a war ever come.”

The answer appeases many who seek stronger ties with the Mali, and a mutual war should bring our peoples closer together. Some fear the lack of transparency in Ricardo's administration. 'Secret weapon to win the hearts and minds', what could he mean by that?

Turn 262 1760AD: Chemistry is discovered, which will allow the construction of great ships of war. Corningrad begins construction of the Republic's first Frigate.

The Germans disembark troops to the north east of Roma. Roma is still heavily fortified from the English assault, and should be safe. Archer bombardment begins and weakens some of the German troops. A knight is dispatched to help with the cleanup.

The Mali have begun to send troops north. The Ethiopians have sent troops to recapture Lalibela, but they are quickly turned away by pikemen.

A spy is dispatched to investigate Aksum and plot potential move against it.

Turn 263 1765AD: A portion of our gold reserves were stolen in Copper Ridge.

The Germans retreat to the hillside outside of Roma to the East. Troops continue to heal in Lalibela for the final push against Zara.

Turn 264 1770AD: Mansa has brought a great army to bear near Gondar. Ricardo sends in some support troops for aid. The spy continues to Aksum. There is a revolution in Russia.

The Egyptians offer a lopsided trade, which is rejected.

Turn 265 1775AD: Istanbul completes a knight and begins work on a Courthouse: “We cannot survive without the rule of law!” Ricardo is quoted to have said. Roma completes a pikeman, and begins work on a musketman. The first wave of attack against Condar is complete, with the Mali troops taking heavy damage, but not many loses. Closer examination shows a sizable archer army present, which would explain the damage.

The Ethiopians have their army spread attempting to reach Gondar, the Roman main force departs from Lalibela on Aksum.

A maceman was lost to the Ethiopeans while defending the Mali troops. An Elephant was lost attacking a maceman, but revenge was had when that maceman died at the hands of our maceman. Our pikeman head to protect our mounted troops.

Our main force approaches Aksum.

More gold was stolen from our treasury, this time from Lalibela. Our maceman was destroyed by a Ethiopian war elephant. Who was then killed by our longbowman.

Turn 267 1785AD: The main army reaches Aksum and begins bombardment.

Turn 268 1790AD: Musketman is trained in Roma, and is hardened against archers. Heads to Gondar to aid in the siege. Work begins on siege weapons across the Republic.

The Holy Romans wish to negotiate with Ricardo. Peace is gained, along with 5 gold in reparations and the world map of the Holy Romans. The entire world map is now available.

The Germans are also willing to talk, and Ricardo extracts 40 gold from them, along with their map.

Turn 269 1795AD Our first Frigate is complete, and has headed to the Ethiopian coast. Work begins on a university in Corningrad.

Turn 270 1800AD: Our spies indicate that the Ethiopians are very close to discovering gunpowder. Ricardo presses for a swift victory. An effort is made to cut off the Ethiopian supply of iron outside of Aksum.

Ethiopians begin a full scale attack on our main army. All attackers are defeated.

Turn 271 1802AD: Our spy incites a revolt in Aksum. We use this opportunity to attack. Our catapults soften up the troops, although not as much as Ricardo would have liked. “The odds are not in our favour” the field general says. “Channel the power of Odin. Make that 3% odds a success!” The knights begin their hopeless attack, but manage to defeat the hardened longbowmen. Lalibela sends in additional reinforcements.

The attack did not go well. Rome took heavy losses outside of Aksum, however, there are only three wounded defenders left. If no Ethiopian reinforcements come in the next two turns, Aksum should fall easily.

Turn 272 1804AD: Several Ethiopian units avoid the siege, and funnel into Aksum. Reinforcements continue to gather.

Turn 273 1806AD: Bombardment begins from the ocean. Reinforcements arrive at Aksum. The attack is pressed, and another two Ethiopian units fall.

Turn 274 1808AD: The army continues the siege of Aksum.

Turn 275 1810AD: Citizens of Lalibela are considering revolution. Ricardo attempts to improve the situation locally. The siege continues.

Turn 276 1812AD: Ricardo presses to end the siege of Aksum. War weariness is beginning to set in with the citizens and is hurting productivity of the Republic. After 5 successful attacks, Aksum has fallen. Attention now shifts to Gondor. A great artist hurries to Aksum to quell the resistance.

Ricardo is questioned about the the break of the siege:

The siege was broken at 5:15AM local time when our column smashed through their defences, lead by our brave catapults.

Which city? Gondor or AssClown?

Did he say AssClown, or Aksum.

I believe he said AssClown sir.

The siege was broken at Aksum. However, the city shall now be know as AssClown.

Turn 277 1814AD: Troops continue to move towards Gondor as that siege is still underway.

Turn 278 1816AD: Disorder is breaking out across the empire. Ricardo begins a campaign to build colesumes across the Republic. It is dubbed 'the Great Diversion'. The Mali press their attack against Gondor, but fail, with a complete loss of life. Little damage was done to the entrenched Ethiopians. All troops are in place however, and Ricardo decides that now is as good as time as any. The fight for Gondor begins.

All siege weapons are lost in the initial softening. Two successful low percentage attacks take out the gunpowder defences. Not all units could be defeated however, Gondor remains out of our hands for another year.

Steel is discovered. Ricardo is heard reciting a poem in celebration:

Steel, How I love thee.
You provide Cannons for me.
{Awkward Pause}
Cannons to the left of them
Cannons to the right of them
Cannons in front of them

Work begins on researching democracy, as citizens are demanding Emancipation.

Turn 279 1818AD: The Spanish declare war on the Mali, as do the Holy Romans. The second wave of attacks on Gondor do not bear fruit, and exchange of units takes place. The revolt has ended in AssClown, however, the land gains were quite minimal. All cities to the north will likely starve if Gondor cannot be broken soon.

Turn 280 1820AD: The Spanish and Indians ask us to enter wars with them, we decline the offer. Archer bombardment continues around Gondor.
