  • CALLING #2: A RECORD OF ROMAN THEOCRACY

    By Merlin

    Recorded by the Monk Cathorix of the Articusian Order in Rome

    In 4000 B.C. Merlin the First founded the city of Rome on the river Salus in the southern woods. After his death in 4100 B.C. his decendents continued his wishes and expaned the empire. They built Pompii and Antium in the northern plains and these cities grew well. Under Merlin the X the empire changed to a monarchy and began the great exploration of this continent. Some years later we changed to Theocracy under Merlin XV, the King now became the Archbishop of Rome and High Preist, "Fait infinitum lux" (Let there be infinte light). By this time Merlin the XV had discoverd the Turkish empire. The explorers traveled west to seek their empire for Merlin the XV did not want any competiton on this contininent. The explorers along with clerics travel along a strip of land bettween the Glacier Mountian to the west of the northern plains and the Southern Sea. Finnally they emerged on the Southwestern end of the continent and found Istantbul. A cleric Friar Articus attempted to convert the city of Istantbul but the heretics would not listen. Then Ankara was discovered by our explorers to the Southeast of Istanbul. Friar Articus traveled there and converted them, but in a few years the Turkish troops killed all belivers! Rome would go to war with the Turks! By now we had discovered the use of gun powder and cannons. Rome built 3 prototype cannon and sent them with an army of older troops to the west. After finnally reaching the land of the Turks Friar preached the end was near in Ankara, not long afterwards the great army struck! The 3 cannon decimated the enemy troops. There were no injuries or casualties on the Roman side and the defenders were totally defeated. The great army took Ankara. Then moved to Istanbul and conquered it in the same manner, a total defeat for our enemies. Afterwards the army moved north and conquered the last Turkish city, the Turks were no more. Now it is 1450 A.D. Not long ago Merlin the XXXXVIIII changed Rome into a democracy. I the last monk of the Articusian order write this record in the halls of the cathedral in Rome in remeberence of the glorious centuries of the Roman Theocracy.

    "Fait infinitum lux" (Let there be infinte light).

    • CALLING #4: THE RISE AND FALL OF THE AUSTRALIANS
      Martin Gühmann
      By Alexander Trofast

      Now when I look back upon what I have done I can see my faults.
      But it's too late now. I will write this book for those who care to read.

      It all started around the year 1800. The people demanded a new governement and a gave them just that. I had been reading books about communistic ideas and I thought it sounded pretty good. The people became happy and production boosted to max. Since i had this much excess production i thought I would make a little army and conquer the island my capitol was located at. Since the Indians were far below me, I drove them away fairly fast. Now when industrialization was at max and every one of my cities were building facories and oil refineries. This was a large mistake. Since the Indians were defeated that easily I moved my armies to the next island and there the Portugese were living. They to were easily beaten. Now my empire strecthed long from my capital. But not even there my conquering stopped, I sent troops all over the world and when i got tank warfare I were unstoppable. In every city I captured I started building factories, oil refineries and robotic plants....

    • CALLING #3: A WAR STORY
      Martin Gühmann
      By Andreas "Atahualpa" Beham

      This story started in 4,000 BC (like many other stories). The land was dark and only a small area was lightened by brave men - my settlers. They elected me as their leader and I knew from that time on I took over the responsibility for them. It was a great feeling and I swore not to dissapoint them. Quickly, I searched for a good place to settle down. The first city was founded. My men worked hard - 10 hours a day and they only got little money. I decided it was best to expand. The best hunters of my tribe were ordered to explore the surrounding and then I recruited men willing to find other cities not far away from the capital. Some 1,000 years later I controled several cities. My scientists worked for hours and soon men came together to talk about the rain and the flash. They did not know where they came from, so they believed in a being even more powerful than me. I enforced them in their believe and changed my government to Theocracy. People gave me a lot of money, but instead of exploiting them, I used it well. One day, men from different tribes visited me. The called themselves the Russians. We talked a bit, but I did not really get what they wanted from me. After some time, I met the Chinese. They seemed friendly at first and I thought I could trust them. However, I still expanded my empire and young men were still willing to find new cities. I sent them away, but what a terrible thing, my scouts reported that they had been kidnapped. Settlers dissapeared every now and then, I was absolutely helpless. My people demanded to stop this and I did. From that time on, all settlers had an escort, one of my elite phalanx divisions each. Expansion was running again....

    • CALLING #1: THE SCOTTISH EMPIRE
      Martin Gühmann
      By Doubtme

      OOC Info:
      My second game of CTP, on a huge size world, difficulty Prince, 4 Civs, as the Scottish. I may detail the latter part of this history - once it has actually occurred!

      Founded by the great William Wallace, 4000 years before the birth of the Messiah, Allan Donald, the Scottish Empire would one day rule far more than the Earth. The clans grew and spread quickly, till they encompassed the far Eastern portion of the long, L shaped continent, rotated 90 degrees to the right....
