View Full Version : Replacement needed on PBW for Nivek's First PBW
December 12th, 2006, 08:45 PM
Nivek is having connection problems, and has asked for a replacement to take over his Novum Romanum Imperium. The Imperium was in first place last I looked, and at war with one human player. The AI has taken several turns, and will continue to run the empire until we find a replacement.
Nivek has offered to give his replacement some tips about what strategies he was pursuing with the Imperium.

This is a fun, friendly game, by the way. And YES, the Romans are in 1st place, and by a considerable margin, too!
Place - Points - Name
1 - 359K - Novum Romanum Imperium
2 - 289K - United Federation
3 - 285K - UAC
4 - 271K - Space Monkeys (These are my noble people)
5 - 192K - Mi-Go (capnq's lowdown space scum)
This game is still in the very early stages, turn 35, and the situation is still quite fluid, both physically and diplomatically.
I should warn the prospective replacement player that Nivek set this game up with some (for PBW) ususual parameters.
There are AI races and neutrals.
And the reason I can quote you exact scores above is because Nivek set the scores to "view all".
Now, these settings are unusual, but by no means a bad thing. The potential "fun factor" in this game is quite large. The unusual factors just add randomness, and should make for a far less unpredicable game than usual.
I am having a blast so far, and I'd really like to see a friendly, open-minded player join us.
I mean, we are offering you the empire in first place, FFS http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/images/smilies/happy.gif

I'm getting a little bored with my current two games and this looks interesting.

Great! Now we just need to coax those easily distracted Space Dolphins of the UAC to submit their turn, and we can get rolling again.
And the Mi-Go are not scum, they're fungi. http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

Once again, Nivek's First PBW needs someone to take over the Novum Romanum Imperium. The Romans are currently in first place with a score of 1.2M, 80 planets in 12 systems, and 95 ships, including at least one planet builder and one warp opener. The game is stock SE IV v1.94, but can be played with v1.95 as well.
