It's a browser-based civilization lite. You start with one town on an island. You build buildings, run research, recruit military units, build ships, trade and wage war. It runs in real-time, but most actions take a while to complete, so you can set it going and come back later. I wish you could queue buildings, but other than that it's pretty cool.

Tigger and I are both playing on the Iota server on the island of Cealios[91:81]. A group of my friends from gamerswithjobs are also playing on that server and we should be starting up an alliance once someone is far enough to research the appropriate techs.

I joined but it put me on broenaios island [57,4] - I don't know if I missed something that would've let me choose or what.

You can't choose, Tig and I just got /really/ lucky to land so close together. You can't trade goods off your archipelago until you have Expansion, but that's a ways away for you. Let us know how you like the game after a spell.

I'm not sure if it's good luck or bad luck... I need some damn grapes!

Yeah, I'm out of wine and asking GWJers if any have some for trade. I was going to colonize on sulfur first, but maybe wine is smarter. Or I could get one and you could get another in our Arch.

Running a large alliance like what GWJ wants to do takes a large commitment of resources for the amount of diplomacy points you need. So I may break off from them to form a friendly alliance that will be more for tech house and friends, but strongly allied with GWJ.
I'll send out invite info once I get it straightened out, but build embassies when you can!

Okies, just tell me what you need/want me to research and I'll do it after I finish up Ink.

You need Foreign Cultures in Seafaring to get embassies.

The tech house alliance has been founded, search for the tag 'tech' since TH was already taken
