While we're at it, Dalmatians are ass-holes too. Not the dogs I mean, they're cute. Because no matter  where they hide, they're easily.... spotted.  :DD

Unless you lived in Kansas. Even though, you'd still be pretty cool. The original Might & Magic on my Commodore 64/128 made me so cool I've never managed to catch-up to myself in coolness ever again.  :nerd:

Well i sure got that one more turn feeling yesterday.

After getting stomped in that 15 turn nightmare scenario a couple of times, jumped into playing Rome........got handled pretty quickly.....twice. Of course i didn't really know WTH i was doing, still don't. so decided to play another civ. Sure, play Dacia, it's out of the way, safe start, time to learn some stuff. Messed up my first start so i'm on my second start with Dacia. Yea, it was pretty slow starting for about 20+ turns. I'm doing pretty well, got a couple of provinces built, top 15 in legacy, close to entering the top tier in the CDR....AAAA.. all is right in the world, this ain't so hard.........................Then those Muther Fu**kers from Getae DOW me and start big stacking me, right on through my provinces...assholes >:( .  So i'm trying to track those those assholes down, they take a province, i take it back, they keep moving  around.......OK, Ok, F, U, ...i'll just go take your capital...asshole. On the exact same turn we swap capital, and they have taken some of my objectives, so my provinces are no more and my capital is captured.


My legacy is still good but i plummet down the CDR....told you they were assholes.



Of course the Thracians [there assholes too] smell blood in the water and DOW on me. I was down to two regions, nothing left to do but turtle and pray. So i build up a big stack, put everything i have into units. I even spend 100 legacy twice for getting troops i can't afford. Money is gone, troops are deserting, so nothing left to do but take my big stack out to play......go out in a blaze of glory, put some pain on Getae [assholes]. I had payed for not taking a battle or two into FOG2, one i had almost twice the army power and lost[ probably terrain and my lack of diversity of troops] so i go into FOG2 to battle. The decisive difference was those troops i bought with my legacy had a bunch of cavalry which made the difference as it was fought on the plains.  I won the two decisive battles, and kept my casualties low so i'm still in the game....barely. I had been playing nice with Galatia, and they started pounding on the Thracians[assholes], but guess who's coming to dinner.... Macedonia....looks like there going to be assholes too :D

Turn 70- see how long i can hang in. Learned a bunch but want to hang in to see Getae take it in the neck....assholes ;D

I had an event occur where my government seized some merchant ships and turned them into the Pontic Navy...which quickly almost bankrupted me. Had to disband them...ships are pricey to maintain :/

If you had a Commodore 64 on a surf board you would have been the coolest kid on the block.

The origional gunship for comodore64, played it to death when I was 12.  Then I learned to surf and didn't touch video games for 15 years.  Now in middle age bliss I've come full circle back to wargaming and flight simming, prepar3d to Dcs and everything in between.

I have been gDetting my butt kicked several times as Rome.

I figured out the beginning phase of the campaign, and that was take down Senones, but the dang Etrusci declared war, so I'm grappling with them (they have a navy so I'm screwed there) and then Tarentum comes a knocking with the Samnites, and to make matters worse money issues and those decadence chips..OUCH.


So APART from the Sennones, the Samnites, the Etrusci and the Neopolitan yokels from Tarentum all hating you.....how do you find the neighbours ?  :DD

The first game I absolutely loved was Medieval Total War although my PC at the time had trouble running it. What a wonderful soundtrack
