I've been meaning to do a Let's Play of Civilization IV: Beyond the Sword for quite a while now, and I finally remembered to do so for a game I started last night. No matter how many times I play this game, it never gets old, because each time I start a new game it's a different world and a different story and outcome.

Game 1 (Peter of Russia) - Update 1: A King and His Idiots

Spoiler:

Okay, so after setting up the game in a custom game to have either 10 or 11 rival Civilizations and setting every Civ as a random one, making sure barbarians were turned off (they've been a big problem for me of late for no apparent reason at all), and then loading the game and finding out I was Peter of Russia, I had to minimize the game and go and download Fraps so I could take screencaps because printscreen was being a pain.


Oh, lookie here, I've got a Scout and a Settler! :D I prefer starting out with a Worker of some kind instead, though, usually.


And I decided to move my Settler closer to the shore for some reason that I'm not quite sure of anymore. Imma build a city and call it... WHOAH! When did that name get in the name box already? @_@ Moscow sounds like a good city name. I think I'll go with that one. :B


Where did all that gold come from? :B

... you know what? Who cares?! WE'RE RICH, WE'RE RICH! :D


I totally forgot why I took th-- OMFG TOTALLY DIDN'T NOTICE THOSE BACON MINES ON EITHER SIDE OF MY CITY! MUST HAVE BACON! *drools* @_@


Oh, what's all this, then? Why am I in charge of what research when I pay a scientist to do that for me?

... oh, wait, you mean I don't pay him at all and I made a law that said all decisions had to be made by me? Fine, fine, you incompetents. I choose...


Oooh! This one looks cool! I can build a place called Monument! :D

... what do you mean that Monument is not a special place?! D:<

... oh, so it's Stonehenge that's the really super awesome special place I get to build? What's that look like?

... You. Don't. Know. What the heck am I paying you people for?! >:(

... I don't pay you? This is news to me! You ingrates think that food and shelter aren't payment?! >:O

Anyways, moving on...


99 GOLD FROM A GOODIE HUT?! 8D WE'RE RICH! 8D I SHALL NAME THIS LONG THING OF FAST WATER FAST WATER OF GOODIE HUT!


Look! A giant pile of rocks! :D


:o I CAN HAZ MY BACON MINES! 8D

And that's it for Update 1.
