Multi-Player Chronicles: Succession Games and Internet Gaming

This section covers all Multi-Player activity for Civ4, whether that be through Succession Game teams or through Multi-Player proper online. Since Civ4's MP is vastly improved over that in Civ3, expect to see me playing a fair share of games over the Internet!

Team Democracy Games

The Apolyton Demogame
Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4 | Part 5 | Part 6 | Part 7 | Part 8 | Part 9 | Part 10 | Part 11 | Part 12 | Part 13

Succession Games

RB1: Cuban Isolationists
Sirian and I launch the new series of Realms Beyond Succession Games with a wild isolationist, multi-religion, island-hopping, hydra-spawning game. It should be a very good read for those looking interested in looking at another game besides the Walkthrough.

RB9: Cottage Cheese
A game where we have to build cottages on virtually every single tile? Yeah, that should be an interesting challenge.

RB19: True Cultural Challenge
We must win by culture, but cannot use the culture tax - a true Cultural victory, in other words!

RB21: The Mongol Hordes
Emperor, must win by Domination or Conquest, NO promotions! Let loose the Mongol Hordes upon an unsuspecting world!

RB25: The Golden Five
A Five City Challenge game in which we must trigger five golden ages, one to crown each of our glorious cities!

RB29a: Cultural Extermination
RB29b Team | RB29c Team | RB29d Team
We must win by Conquest, but cities cannot be razed or captured - only flipped by culture!

RBTS2: Defense!
We try our hand at the Defense scenario packaged with the second Civ4 expansion. Defend the Realms Beyond the Sword!

RBTS4: Divine Charlemagne
We take on the Charlemagne scenario from Beyond the Sword, on Deity difficulty. A game marred by my month-long PC issues that kept me from playing all but the initial turnset.

RBTS5: Multiple Personality Disorder
Every trip through the roster, we swap to a random new civ and leader!

RBTS6: Finally Ready for Noble
No tile improvements, EVER. That'll work, right?
