  • Something I would like to do. Let me know

    I was wondering if I could run my own tournament here.

    I have a pretty good idea.

    History's greatest empire.

    I have a rather unconventional way to do it.

    There probably won't be any ribbons. It's not about that. It's all about being goofy. Silly. A little off-colony.

    I intend to run it like college basketball. Starting with sixteen empires, down to the elite eight, then the final four, then the finals, with two empires duking it out. I'll run it over the course of a week or two.

    This is just for fun.

    What do you think? This question is for the moderators as much as anyone else.

    We might get some laughs out of it. You can vote for your favorites, but voting might not totally affect the outcome. It's for fun, as I said.

    The important thing is not who wins, but how they do it.

    Let me know what you think. I really wouldn't mind doing this.

    Sure, if you have an idea that you think will fly, then by all means. We are a bit short staffed this fall, which is why I haven't knocked out any sort of winter campaign so this would fit nicely.

        Would be a bit tough; comparing them I mean. Sure the British Empire was the biggest but look how useless most of Canada is; Mongolian Empire was largest continuous in history and by comparison the Roman Empire is puny, but look how Rome still affects us today. So how would we judge the best? I mean, criteria for the Generals' Campaign is who would you have leading your army. Which Empire would you rather be a citizen of? Soldier of? Ruler of?

        That being said, this should be fun.
        And it's over the mountain and over the Main,
        Through Gibralter, to France and Spain.
        Pit a feather tae your bonnet, and a kilt aboon your knee,
        Enlist my bonnie laddie and come awa with me.

          Cool. Any chance we can spread the word?

          What's the best way to get the word out?

            you could use several criteria to judge:

            Security for its citizens
            Technological advances
            Religoius impact
            Reputation factor
            etc....
            The free world knows, out of the bitter wisdom of experience, that vigilance and sacrifice are the price of liberty.
