Bushido - The Use of Samurai
By Diamondeye at 2008-05-08 11:47
Disclaimer: I, in no way, claim to be a player capable of Emperor+ games. This article is meant mostly to the players playing Monarch and below.

Spoiler for Authors note - Bushido and Samurai:
"Bushido" is japanese and means "The Way of the Warrior". It was a codex that all samurai followed in order to have their honor intact.

"Samurai" is the name of the medieval Japanese warrior caste, and is deprived from the japanese verb, "to serve".

The impression most of us have of Tokugawa of Japanese is, to be honest, a ridiculous AI leading a rather mediocre nation. The reason to this is that the Japanese civilization has absolutely no economic traits or uniques (unless counting the rather late-game Shale Plant, which is underpowered, imo).

The Great Wall of Suleiman: A Warmonger's Guide to Espionage

The Great Wall of Suleiman: a Warmonger’s Guide to Espionage

Before I begin, I would like to thank madscientist for his wonderful article “The Power of Great Spies,” which served as the initial inspiration for me to develop this strategy. I highly recommend anyone wishing to familiarize themselves with my strategy read it first (the link is below), as it served as my foundation. Secondly, I would like to admit that this is both my first article AND my first post on these forums, although I’ve been a long time lurker and have read most of the articles in this sub-forum.

Chatroom Client and Rules

Please allow the java chat applet to load when the pop up window appears.

The CivFanatics Chat Room can be accessed using the Java chat room, or you can use an IRC (Internet Relay Chat) client, such as mIRC or Trillian, to view it. We strongly encourage you to use an IRC client because it's much faster and convenient to use than the Java applet.
