Those of you who used to be back on the Comm might remember that I attempted to do an open-participation style Let's Play of Civilization 3, before various problems shut it down right before the forum closed for good. I can't resurrect that particular game, but being as we're all over here on Mercury with a bigger crowd now, I was curious if anyone around here would be interested in starting it again.

For anyone who doesn't know what I'm talking about: the purpose of the Let's Play is to build an empire by consensus, having everyone give their votes as to what we should be doing, who we should be killing, and where we should be going. The original thread is over in the Comm's old Studio, if you want to take a look.

Now, I'm going to be mostly busy over the next few days with college stuff, so I'm going to give over the next few days for anyone who wants to participate to come in and say so. If I get some input I should be able to start putting stuff up around Tuesday or Wednesday.

If you're interested, the first things that need to be settled are what civ we're playing as, the name of that civilization and its leader, the civs we're facing off against, and the particulars of the world. (Size: Tiny, Small, Standard, Large or Huge, Barbarians: Sedentary, Roaming, Restless or Raging, Climate: Arid, Normal or Wet, Temperature: Warm, Temperate, or Cool, Land Mass: Continent, Pangaea, or Archipelago, Age: 3 Billion, 4 Billion or 5 Billion.)

I have Conquests now, so the amount of available civilizations has gone up. A full list of our options for ourselves and our enemies can be found here:

I have never done a Let's Play, nor have I ever played Civilization 3, so this could be interesting.

I'll do my best to take part, despite not knowing any more about the game than I picked up from your last Let's Play. I'm just about to go to bed, but I'll try to look at the list and give my vote for a civ, size, etc. tomorrow.

Ok, for "tomorrow" read "2 days later".

I've taken a look through the new list. These are my thoughts:

Civ: Chinese, German, Roman, Dutch in order of preference.
Name: Mercury
Leader: Champagne Supernova or Crystal
Opponents: Random
Size: Standard
Barbarians: Restless
Climate: Normal
Temperature: Temperate
Land Mass: Continents, unless we have the Dutch as the civilisation, in which case, Archipelago to take advantage of their naval prowess
Age: 4 billion
