Robin's "Book 31".

Introduction and first cityEdit

Huge map this time, so it could be many centuries before we see another nation. Again 50% land, so lots of seas and inlets expected. I've actually seen the map and marked about 20 suitable starting tiles trying to ensure that each had at least four and no more than six plain or grassland or fish or fruit or wheat. That should ensure that no nation has a hopelessly inferior start and therefore few if any will disappear unduly soon.

"Moderate" level means that I (leader of the Romans) and all the AI players are on the standard level, e.g. 10 resources for a militia and 40 food in the foodbox and 800 resources for the biggest Wonders.

First city: RomaEdit

Ten coastal tiles in two sections (both adjacent, so we are on a portage), including one fish. Two grasslands, three plains, two swamps, tundra (not unexpected, as we are close to the Arctic), forest, hill. Not much obvious resource there, so we may want to mine the hill even under Despotism, not usually worthwhile. City centre is on a hill: only two food and no resource. On "Maximize Growth" we have a surplus of three food, which is as good as one can reasonably expect, and four trade, but no resource, so we'll be irrigating the plains pronto; move settler onto one.

Building Town Guard, but nothing going in at present.

See subpages C-evo test Book 31/1st 100 turns, 2nd 100 turns, 3rd 100 turns, 4th 100 turns, 5th 100 turns,

1 turn. 3950 BCEdit

One year into it. Choose to research The Wheel for trade on roads. Looks like 3 turns away, i.e. 9 beakers. Cut tax to 0% to boost trade (4 beakers) while no expenses and with 1 gold in kitty. Start road.

3 turns. 3850Edit

Researched Wheel, choose Warrior Code. Road in place; irrigate; should have irrigated first, because until we do we won't be using that plain.

6. 3700Edit

Warrior Code > Horseback Riding. Irrigation is "4.5/6"; remembered to click "I" again after checking, to send him back to work.

7. 3650Edit

Irrigation. Move to 2nd plain (discovering more forest), noting now 3 food, 1 resource, and 5 trade.

8. 3600Edit


11. 3450Edit

Horseback Riding > Bronze Working.

12. 3400Edit

Irrigation; so "R". 3 food, 2 resources, 5 trade. Food box has been quietly filling and has 36/40. Switch (belatedly?) to "Maximize Research" to get the Town Guard built to keep Citizen 5 content when he or she arrives. 1 food, 3 production (on top of the 5 there), 5 trade. Should work just about right.

14. 3300Edit

Road. Plain seems to have river, so we zip back to Roma. With that road, "Maximize Research" pulls worker from forest to plain, which won't do: "Maximize Production" restores the game plan: 1 food, 4 resources, 5 trade.

15. 3250Edit

Settler to 3rd plain.

16. 3200Edit

Bronze Working > "Military Research": "New unit design (Ground)" 18/12/1.5, cost 20. Safety first. Population growth to 5; Citizen 5 temporarily joins the Control Brigade (eating 2 food and therefore causing a switch in the automatic distribution so as to maintain food stocks), because our official guard is only 19/20 built. 0 food, 3 resources, 5 trade.

17.3150: Town GuardEdit

Production complete. Five citizens working. Town Guard provides 2 morale points and requires one unit of material for support. Maximizing growth will see us hitting 6 in 10 turns, meanwhile building Barracks very slowly. Stay with Max Reso to do barracks in 10: 1 net food, 4 net resources (i.e. production), 6 trade.

19. 3050: First military researchEdit

New units are called "Principes". Focus on Seafaring, research Pottery.

20. 3000Edit

Irrigated 3rd plain: "R". 2 food, 4 production, 6 trade.

22. 2900Edit

Road; move to grassland. 2 food, 4 production, 7 trade.

23. 2850Edit


24. 2800Edit

Pottery > Alphabet.

25. 2750Edit

Road. Settler moves to plain outside city radius.

26. 2700Edit

"R". Barracks now 38 so switch to "Maximize Growth" - 4 food, 2 production, 8 trade.

27. 2650: BarracksEdit

Barracks complete: start Principes (10 turns). Tax rate up to cover barracks maintenance: 10% might do but 20% preferred because it gives us a little cushion against fluctuations in trade.

4 food, 2 production, 8 trade (2 tax + 6 research).

28. 2600Edit

Road, just an easy one move from Roma, and we can explore best using a ship initially, so we bring the settler back and prepare to mine our hill.

29. 2550Edit

Alphabet > Map Making. Settler to hill.

30. 2500Edit


33. 2350Edit

Population growth: Roma [6]. Storage 3/40, surplus 5. Eight more turns at this rate will take us to 7 with one wasted worker. So switch to max production but surplus still 3, so we really need that mine.


35. 2250Edit

Principes built. When the mine is ready, one of the "3 food" workers will switch to it, but there will still be a surplus - so we will start a settler soon. But Longboats will be available next turn, so we do Trade Goods this turn.

3+4+(2+7); cash "10+1" (but probably "10+5" if refreshed).

36. 2200Edit

"New units are ready for production." Longboats. 0/3/2.5. cost 20. So we will start one. Map Making > Seafaring. Send Principes off for a little exploration near the coast waiting to board the ship when it starts off exploring the southern sea.

Cash 15+5 before switching to ship production, 15+1 after. 15 should be enough buffer, so cut tax to 10%:

3+4+(1+8), cash 15+0.

38. 2100Edit

Mine (which will now get a road). Worker switches there from fish. Longboats 8/20, production 8. Food 18/40, surplus 1. Principes finds more water and unappealing land out east.

2100 BC

1+6+(1+6). Cash 15+0.

40. 2000Edit

Longboats unit appears and head south. Principes heads south-west towards ship, and we find that our southern sea is just a 5-tile lake. Ship will head north and Principes will possibly board it later but will first explore land south and west of lake for a city site.

42. 1900Edit

Road on hill; settler runs south-west to prairie.

43. 1850Edit

"R". Ship finds Arctic.

44. 1800Edit

Seafaring > (focus Engineering) Masonry. Switch to "Hurry Production" so that new settler (24/40) will be built just before population reaches 7. Ship reaches dead end.


45. 1750Edit

Road on prairie. Settler moves west to plain.

46. 1700Edit

"R". Principes steps onto mountain to get wider view.

48. 1600Edit

New settler built and heads south-west, Roma[4]. Start 2nd Principes. Switch to max growth. Old settler moves to grassland. Principes (having had to wait on the mountain) reveals more.

2+2+(1+5), cash 15+0.

49. 1550Edit

Old settler starts road; new settler has decided where to build and moves to forest to build access road; site will be on hill, sharing a grassland with Roma but just clear of the tiles that will be used by a western coastal city (no matter which of three possible sites that chooses); it will have two other grasslands, three plains, a pond, forests, hills, and two mountains including one with iron.

50. 1500Edit


3+2+(1+7), cash 15+0.

53. 1350Edit

Masonry > Construction. Ship and Principes are exploring westward while old settler improves radius of proposed 2nd city.

55. 1250Edit

Start 2nd city.


58. 1100Edit

Finished 2nd Principes, who heads east to explore more. Start 3rd settlers.

1000 BC and later, 2nd city soonEdit

61. 975 BCEdit

25-year intervals from 1000 BC

Ostia 2nd city, using irrigated plain. 1 food, 1 production, building Town Hall; it will be done in 40 turns, same time as population grows (unless we speed things by becoming a Monarchy, which is unlikely).

Roma settlers 6/40; 4+2+(1+7).

62. 950Edit

Construction > Engineering

63. 925Edit

Roma [6], food 1/40; continuing at max growth would have us at 7 long before settler finished, so adjust using "Hurry Production": 3+4+(1+8).

71. 725Edit

Engineering > (focus Gunpowder) Ceremonial Burial. 3rd settlers unit built (and goes south-west); start 3rd Principes. Earlier Principes are near extreme west and east of known landmass, turning back towards south-centre. Ship is finding west coast with glimpses of what could be islands or other continents.

Roma [4], back to "Maximize Growth", 2+2+(1+5); Ostia 1+1+0.

75. 625Edit

"We have contact to the Greeks now" - militia approaces one of our settlers. We should put a unit in Ostia in case militia visits there.

76. 600Edit

Switch Roma to Max Prodn so that it stays at 4 for a while, as we send Guard to Ostia. 0+3+(1+4).

78. 550Edit

Start 3rd city on coast (on tundra, which is poor in principle, but the location fits very well with other sites).

79. 525Edit

Roma produces 3rd Principes (which heads for Ostia) and starts another (1/20). Temporary handicap reduces productivity because a size 4 city is supporting a Town Guard plus five other units, so 0+2+(1+4). Guard will be back soon, so resume max growth, food 35/40 + 2, material 3-2=1 production, trade 1+5.

80. 500Edit

Principes reaches Ostia and accepts support from there, restoring Roma to 2+2+(1+5), and Guard heads for home.

82. 450Edit

Roma [5], food 1/40 +3, material 3-1=2, trade 1+7.

Three cities from 400 BCEdit

84. 400Edit

Paestum, 3rd city, coastal, using irrigated plain, building Town Hall (40 turns away, as is the next citizen). Roma therefore 4+2+(1+7).

87. 325Edit

Ceremonial Burial > Mysticism.

89. 275Edit

Roma builds Principes - send it to Paestum, start another. Ship emerges from big fiddly harbour. Old settler creating road to next proposed city site observes another peculiarity of "borders"; there is a similar peculiarity south-east of Roma.


93. 175Edit

Roma [6], 5+2+(1+9).

98. 50BCEdit

Mysticism > Medicine (choosing the more advanced advance because it is more likely to appeal to potential friends). Rome has built Principes, starts settler, using max production (which will get the settler just as the population hits 7); 1+6+(1+6). Alternative was a temple, also "just in time", but we've invested time in the next city site.

Starting Annos DominiEdit

100. "0 AD"Edit

Someone should try to persuade Steffen to change that non-existent year.

101. 20 ADEdit

20-year intervals now

Ostia [3] and builds its Town Hall; still max growth: 2+1+4 - minus 1 corruption, balance all going to research. (Greek militia is stubbornly staying there - what a waste of exploration time! - on one of our irrigated plains, so we are going to issue an ultimatum; if Greeks refuse to receive our emissaries he dies.)

F9: "The Greeks" - "Neutral, Isolationistic (95% credibility)." We switch our attitude to "Enthusiastic" but they don't receive our emissaries. Militia dies. Ostia now 2 production, so we start granary and will need to switch later to more production to get it built just in time for the next "pop up". (PS - we forgot to do that.)

Overall still cash 15+0 with 9 research.

102. 40 ADEdit

"We have contact to the Egyptians now" - our southern explorer finds a militia, and possibly a border but Egy colour is difficult to pick on green tiles. Egyptians parley immediately and we become friends. They want Engineering and offer Polytheism but you should know my views about accepting that. They settle for giving us Monotheism. We get Chivalry for Alphabet (from which we can deduce that they got Map Making from another friend), Monarchy for Masonry, and Medicine (which we are just under halfway through researching) for Construction. A good evening's work.

103. 60 ADEdit

Vikings gone. Their population was the same as ours, both just below Egy, when in about 800BC it started to drop - as far as one can judge from the sometimes misleading graph. Seems they neglected military power much more than we. Their tech was ahead of ours and Egy but their exploration was minimal and their cultivation stopped about 1400 BC.

105. 100 ADEdit

Medicine > Writing.

106. 120Edit

Greeks gone. Their population was away above us and the other two known, from about 1800 BC till about 500 BC. Their tech was even higher than the Vikings but their military was similarly dismal except very early.

Funds are dropping, with new Town Hall, so put tax up to 20%.

Rome [5] plus new settlers. Max growth and start another principes. 3+2+(2+6). Ostia 2+2+(4-1=1+2). Cash 11+1, research 8.

111. 220Edit

Start 4th city on plain north-west of Paestum on coast of peninsula. It will grow fast initially but slow down before the others do.

115. 300Edit

Roma Princ, causing short-term reduction in production. 3+1+(2+6). Start temple.

116. 320Edit

Ostia adopts new princ, so Roma back to 3+2+(2+6).

117. 340Edit

Writing > Invention. Capua 4th city, 2+3+0 thanks to forest game. So Roma 4+2+(2+6). Our three explorers are finding interesting bits of topography, and the inlet east of our lake seems to adjoin a substantial sea. Eastern princ finds first foreign border, possibly Phoenician, and will investigate.

119. 380Edit

Eastern Principes is killed by a mounted unit. F5 tells us it was an elephant, 18/6/2.5, costing 24. Can we raise a war party??! (Not yet - and we are fairly close to designing much more powerful units.)

Roma [6], adjusts to Hurry Production, 3+4+(2+7). Cash 24+1, research 10 - double figures at last. "We have contact to the Phoenicians now". But they are not initiating talks.

121. 420Edit

Ostia [4] with granary 10 turns from completion. Carry on - we can finish granary then build or borrow Town Guard to let us up to 5 with little wastage. 3+2+(6-2=1+3).

Ship finds Egyptian territory away out on west coast. So it will be going around and/or doubling back. Southern princ finds British longboat heading north-east.

124. 480Edit

Paestum [3] and Town Hall: 2+2+(4-1=1+2). No suitable things to build, so go for Trade Goods. South princ enters a pink territory.

Cash 29+3, research 12.

125. 500Edit

Americans seek and get friendship. We get Currency for Seafaring, Code of Laws for Masonry. They don't want anything else of the 3 they could get. We could get 5 from them. Their tech is at similar level to Egy and popn is middling.

126. 520Edit

Roma resumes max growth as temple nearly done: 5+2+(2+8).

World's first WonderEdit

127. 540Edit

Phoenicians have built Temple of Zeus.

128. 560Edit

Invention > Chivalry.

129. 580Edit

Roma Temple; go for granary with Hurry Production: 3+4+(2+7). Move out of American territory, having deduced where one of their cities is; see green border?

Cash 46+2, research 12.

130. 600Edit

Roma [7]; granary won't be in time so Max Prodn: 2+6+(2+7).

131. 620Edit

Ostia Granary, start Town Guard, Max Prodn: 1+4+(5-1=1+3).

Capua Town Hall, go for granary; 2+3+(0+1)

133. 660Edit

Chivalry > Iron Working. Contact to Japanese. Old settler has prepared a bit for 5th city and starts improvements between Roma and Ostia.

First captureEdit

134. 680Edit

Find Edo [5] with 12/4/2.5 defending. Try the friendly approach but read: "The Japanese empire is in anarchy. Our emissaries didn't find a settled administration to speak to." Well, they could be better off under Roman rule: attack Edo. Capture Edo [3]. No barracks, so our princ will take 2 or 3 turns to recover from 28% health loss.

135. 700Edit

No visible response from Japanese. Ostia eases up to Hurry Research: 3+2+(6-2=1+3). Ship has passed Egyptian sea border and found more land west of it.

137. 740Edit

Ostia [5] with new Town Guard: start settlers but max growth: 4+1+(8-2=1+5).

Capua [3], and granary will be built just when it's halfway to next level. Switch to different type of construction, selling progress for 18, then resume building granary, which will be ready only 4 turns before needed instead of 9.

Edo takeover is complete and it could produce 3 food plus one resource, but in case we lose it (which is not too unlikely as there is another city just east of it) we switch to max prodn and could do Trade Goods but our man is fighting fit again so we are going to put up a fight: try another Principes: 0+4+0.

Cash 73+0, research 16, nearly halfway through Iron W.

139. 780Edit

Jap hardened horseman appears (same 12/4/2.5). We could kill him, but if he has mates one of them would get us. As it stands, our defence (even if we had moved last turn) would equal his attack, so he may not be ready for kamikaze.

Egyptians talk, and we get Theology for Seafaring and Astronomy for Invention.

140. 800Edit

Roma granary (earlier than desirable, but we can't remember everythibg), switch to max growth for building settlers.

Irrigation, paradoxically, gives Ostia more resources: 4+2+(7-2=1+4).

Cash 77-1, research 18.

142. 840Edit

Iron Working > Monotheism.

Ostia [6] (20/40) and road gives it another trade; switch to max prodn: 1+6+(8-2=1+5). Edo has built its own principes but he's green; he climbs a hill.

Americans talk; we get Philosophy for Iron Working.

143. 860Edit

Our man on Edo hill dies: Jap hardened dragoon 33/11/2.5, cost 42, down to 52% health but they may have others; we take a chance and kill him and continue to build another princ.

144. 880Edit

It was a bad idea: Jap horseman kills our princ. Switch to militia and spend 4 gold to rush him, so that if we lose Edo the Japs will have to have destroyed it.

Roma [8] (24/40): switch to max prodn: 3+6+(2+9).

Paestum [4]; start settlers, who will be just in time: 3+3+(6-2=1+3).

Phoenician invasion from 900Edit

145. 900Edit

Phoenician kills our old settler on a forest; they have a militia nearby. This could be serious. But if it was only an elephant it will be a bit sick now (27 v 15) and we're not much at risk on our hills.

146. 920Edit

Monotheism > Military research without waiting for Gunpowder.

Americans offer Mathematics for Invention: OK.

147. 940Edit

Tax to zero to speed research: Cash 61-7, research 23.

148. 960Edit

Ostia [4] (26/40) plus settlers: go for barracks: 2+2+(6-2=0+4). Settler heads for Capua.

149. 980Edit

Musketeers: 39/26/1.5, cost 35. Research Bridge Building to produce Overweight units.

150. 1000Edit

Roma [6] (40/40) plus settlers, starts musketeers: 0+6+(0+7). Edo Principes, starts musketeers. Phoenician veteran elephant (86%) shows his face and dies, with our princ dropping to 57% health.

Can't sustain cash drain, so raise tax to 30%: cash 40-2, research 12.

151. 1020Edit

Roma [7] (20/40 - zero growth but it was on 40 stopped by lack of aqueduct); 1+6+(3+6).

152. 1040Edit

Capua granary, start Barracks. Edo now sees two Jap horsemen.

153. 1060Edit

No Japs in sight. Ostia's princ back to 100% so kills phoen militia and gets third stripe but is down to 45%.

155. 1100Edit

Ostia [5]: 3+2+(8-2=2+4).

156. 1120Edit

Roma Musketeers, start more.

157. 1140Edit

Capua [4], max prodn for barracks: 0+7+(3-1=1+1). Another Phoen elephant on the forest just as our vet reaches 100%: dead, with vet dropping to 62%. Roma sends its princ in support.

158. 1160Edit

Paestum [3] plus settlers, starts barracks: 1+2+(4-1=1+2).

159. 1180Edit

Edo musketeers, goes for trade goods, 0+4+0. Another Phoen elephant dies in forest and our vet drops to 46%.

160. 1200Edit

Bridge Building and take a chance > Gunpowder. Capua barracks and will have musketeers in 5 turns. Edo militia goes exploring.

161. 1220Edit

Roma musketeers just as another Phoen repeats cycle and vet becomes elite at 36% health. Tax 20%. Cash 36-1, research 16.

162. 1240Edit

Ostia [6] (21/40), switch to speed barracks: 0+5+(8-2=1+5).

163. 1260Edit

Ostia eases:2+4+(9-3=1+5).

164. 1280Edit

Ostia barracks: max prodn for musketeers: 0+6+(8-2=1+5).

165. 1300Edit

Capua musketeers, start temple on max research: 2+6+(4-1=1+2).

167. 1340Edit

Roma musketeers, max growth: 5+2+(2+10).

Cash 30-1, research 19.

168. 1360Edit

Roma [8]: 4+4+(3+10). Cash 29+0, research 19.

169. 1380Edit

Gunpowder > Military research.

Roma stops musk (sold for 7) and does trade goods to max: 2+6+(2+9).

Tax 0%, cash 36+0, research 23.

170. 1400Edit

Americans talk; we get Science for Gunpowder. Ostia musketeers.

171. 1420Edit

Phoen Principes appears: same as ours.

172. 1440Edit

Capua temple, do Trade goods: max growth: 3+5+(5-2=0+3). Ostia musketeers get target practice, drop to 49%. Japs produce musketeers 11/22/1.5, cost 21.

Overweight units designedEdit

173. 1460Edit

New redcoated overweight musketeers 64/48/1.5, cost 56. Start four after a spot of "selling".

Research Mathematics. Tax 40%, cash 62-3, research 15.

174. 1480Edit

Ostia's musk gained more practice while successfully defending.

Capua [5], max prodn: 1+8+(5-2=1+2).

Start new south-west city, flanked by defenders on hills.

175. 1500Edit

Ostia's musketeer gets third stripe with another 51% drop. Roma will reach max size but must build a redcoat.

Now 10-year intervals

177. 1520Edit

Paestum Barracks, starts redcoat. 1+2+(4-1=1+2).

178. 1530Edit

Mathematics > Metallurgy.

Six cities by 1550Edit

180. 1550Edit

Tarquinia founded: will reach [3] in 20 turns. Phoenician dragoon 48/16/2.5, cost 48.

181. 1560Edit

Capua redcoats. Ostia needed two defenders, but both held and gained a level.

182. 1570Edit

Tax 50%, cash 31+0, research 10.

186. 1610Edit

No enemies in view recently. Capua builds second redcoat and switches to max growth: 2+7+(6-2=2+2).

Cash 31+0, research 11.

187. 1620Edit

Edo gets first redcoats and switches to max growth: 3+1+0.

189. 1640Edit

Roma [6] plus settlers, start aqueduct: 3+0+(5+5).

Ostia Temple, max growth, start aqueduct: 4+2+(10-3=4+3).

Cash 31-1, research 11.

190. 1650Edit

Roma [7]: after some rehoming of units, 2+4+(6+5).

Paestum has a redcoat from Capua, so max growth: 2+2+(4-1=2+1).

Cash 31+1, research 11.

193. 1680Edit

Metallurgy > Ballistics

Capua redcoat, starts cathedral: 1+8+(7-3=2+2).

194. 1690Edit

Misunderstood manual?? A hardened Phoenician musketeer 48/32, i.e. attack strength 72 (possibly a little less because he was 94% in 1670), defeats our hardened musketeer (39/26) who has just arrived on a hill: defensive strength was expected to be (26 x 1.5) doubled, i.e. 78. Evidently the hill's "+100%" applies only to the basic defensive strength, i.e. totalling 65. (no consolation to see the attacker down to 10% health!)

The "Combat" section of "Concepts" in the manual does, in fact, say clearly that the following enhancements for defenders are accumulative, not multiplicative: experience; terrain bonus (in this case +100%); wall or fortress; fortification. So our militia must wait a turn on the hill before getting the maximum: 26+13+26+0+13=78. On a mountain he would be 91 after waiting a turn.

So we revert to previous situation and replay 1680 slightly differently.

Ostia [7]: 5+2+(12-4=4+4). Cash 35+1, research 12.

197. 1720Edit

Egyptians talk; we get Steam Engine for Gunpowder.

Ostia [8]; max research: 1+7+(12-4=4+4).

Paestum [4]: 3+3+(6-2=2+2).

Cash 39+2; research 14.

199. 1740Edit

Roma [8]: max prodn: 1 profit, 6 production, (6+5).

Cash 41+3, research 13.

200. 1750Edit

Paestum builds its redcoat, starts temple.

Tarquinia [3]: 3+2+0.

201. 1752Edit

Two-year intervals now.

Edo [4]; max prodn: 0+5+0.

202. 1754Edit

Ship finds Nottingham [8].

Capua short-term switch to complete Cathedral precisely: 0+9+(6-2=2+2)

205. 1760Edit

Persians gone. Population was away above us and friends until halved about 4ooAD; military power was generally better than ours till very recently; tech was similar to Egyptians'

Capua Cathedral; starts Great Wall: 1+8+(7-3=2+2).

Cash 59+2, research 13.

206. 1762Edit

Program is not very clever when we use "Go".

British have an Ironclad: 368/184/4.5, artillery, cost 196. Ouch!

Evacuate Athens and sell its barracks. Pay 76 to finish Sparta's fortress, which will give our elite infantry defensive strength of at least 196+93=289 if they've been unmoved for a turn; that will make Brit Ironclad a bit unhealthy for a while (and they don't heal at sea). If we built one of our Cruisers now, its attack strength would be 180; wait to build a dockyard and it could deal with Ironclad. But we can now design better ships. Give us time! Our ship-sinking ground units are nearly available.
