    Fields of Glory:Empires is live

    I think Culture/Decadence is a way to win without having to paint the map, as victory is determined by the highest Legacy? How has diplomacy been so far?

    Praise for The Handmaid's Tale

    My wife and I just finished watching season two. I just wanted to post here that this is an excellent show. Before you watch, though, be aware that it has all the trigger warnings (except spiders). This show is tough to watch. Well worth it, especially for the themes. I have to admit that...

    What is your favorite 4x at the moment?

    Right now I'm noodling around with Age of Wonders 3. it's not bad and I'm having fun, but... there may be such a thing as too much "rock, paper, scissors". AoW3 is more like rock-paper-scissors-hammer-tinfoil-pencil. There are about 8 different vulnerabilitys, specializations, special...

    Imperator: Rome has been released. Anyone playing?

    I think some of the Greek city-states could be classified as Republics (maybe). Is there more to a Republic than voting by free citizens? And didn't some of the German tribes have voting by king elections? Vaguely recall something like that.

The plot centers around a young woman, Carolyn, kidnapped at an early age and raised as a librarian/apprentice in a hellish cult that she tries to...

    Authors you are hoping get picked up by HBO/Netflix/whoever?

    I'd like to see Bollywood do an adaptation of Lord of Light. Or Bollywood-style musical numbers anyway. Apparently back in 2017 United Cable Productions was doing a Lord of Light adaptation. UCP has done a bunch of shows, including some for SyFy, so it isn't some fly-by-night operation...
