Ancient. Also i don't believe its the time we start, its just the civ we choose. So we could get America (modern America) but still start in ancient times.

You're picking which era you want our civ to have most of its UUs and UBs. For example, voting Ancient rules out America because America has no UUs or UBs in that era. We're starting in the ancient era anyway.

I know Raz, what i meant was was say you picked Ancient you get Rome, Ancient Greece something like that. You also start in Ancient times. If you pick modern you get America,  or another Modern Civ. You still start in Ancient times. So i was clearing up what Someone said about starting with the map already mostly colonized.

They said by the time we get to Modern, most of the world will be colonized, which it will be, and that that's when we'll need all our power.

Vader, we start in ancient times no matter which Civ wins.

Anyway, it seems obvious Ancient has won. I'll make the roll and update when I have access to my computer.

Different type of device.

Anyway...

THIS IS GREECE!!!

The random roll came up 9 out of 22, resulting in Greece becoming our civ. The Odeon is a significantly better version of the Colosseum, providing more happiness and culture. The only UU of note is the Phalanx, which replaces Greece's Axemen, but eliminating the Axeman vulnerability to Chariots. Basically, it means the only feasible counter to the Phalanx is an archer-type or horse-type unit. All the other UUs are purely aesthetic changes.

Now, we must decide what to call our civilization and our people. Please, no ridiculous names.

How about Amaetria, and the people can be Amaetrians?
If so, then our capital should be Imilis.
Just something I came up with at random.
Who are you again and why in the world would you expect anything resembling rationality or civility in youtube comments?

The Amaebe People of Amaetria

We will be the Amaebe People of Amaetria. Now, what is our home habitat? This vote will determine what much of our general starting area will be composed of, be it water, grasslands, etc.

A. The Grasslands
B. The Plains
C. The Mountains/Hills
D. The Forests
E. The Coast
F. The Desert Floodplains

Forests will be good for a developing civilization. Plenty of lumber to use.
