In the beginning, there was the Question.

The Question was simple, but held deep meaning.

The Question was more than a request for information.

It was a challenge.

Twelve words, driving thousands of years of history.

"Can you build a civilization that will stand the test of time?"

And so we begin. In here we will traverse the thousands of years of history Civilization V runs through in each game, exploring new worlds, founding globe-spanning empires, interacting with other cultures, and occasionally removing said other cultures from the face of the planet. Truly, we shall be as gods, shaping the course of mankind.

This post shall serve as a record of my progress, an overview of the triumphs and failures of my various civilizations. From launching ourselves into interstellar space, to crushing our enemies beneath the wheels of our chariots, to our civilization being completely conquered.

This post will be updated and expanded upon as we go on.

Victories:

We are the champions - my friends

And we'll keep on fighting

Till the end

We are the champions

We are the champions

No time for losers

'Cause we are the champions

Of the World

- Queen, "We Are The Champions"

  1. As of yet none.

Defeats:

I met a traveller from an antique land

Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone

Stand in the desart. Near them, on the sand,

Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,

And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,

Tell that its sculptor well those passions read

Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,

The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed:

And on the pedestal these words appear:

"My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:

Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!"

Nothing beside remains. Round the decay

Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare

The lone and level sands stretch far away.

-Percy Bysshe Shelley, "Ozymandias"

  1. As of yet none.
