    Default What's the craziest thing you've ever done for RTW?

    Haha, this is just a platform for me to crow about myself, but it'll be interesting to see what you people come up with.

    For one, I've gotten pretty proficient at drawing maps of the Mediterranean, cos I have about 20 A4 hand-drawn maps of the RTW map, on which provinces and settlements are outlined, and I shade it according to my empire's boundaries, and use it to plan campaigns. Also, a gigantic to-scale map 3 by 2 metres with the same map, this time in greater detail (i.e. rivers, mountains, fords), hand drawn. (I have a pirated RTW, so I don't have that REALLY nice map that comes with the original package ;-P)

    I also have five small notebooks chockful of my campaign records, starting from the Macedonian campaign (i.e. my 4th campaign)... now on my 6th, Volume II of the Scythian Chronicles. I faithfully record every unit/building commissioned or completed every turn, as well as my new actions, and I conduct a time-consuming but highly informative census of my empire every 10 turns to check up the status quo :-P

    I've also started doing pencil sketches of the different units in the game, starting with the Macedonian pikemen (I have to learn to draw horses before I can start on the Light Lancers)...

    Anyone crazier than me about RTW? Post here! Let's share our love of the Beautiful Game. ^_^

    By "pirated" I assume that you mean you smuggled it from the high seas.

    I make raw skecthes when bored deuring school, but I mainly did that for MTW. I was not able to when I played STW a lot and I do not have the bored time in school this year to do it for RTW.

    If you really love the game so much and have a pirated copy then please buy it!.

    This is not altruistic on my behalf, but the more money CA makes the more likely we will get a better expansion, support etc.

    Don't get me wrong I don't think anyone here has ever not played a pirated game, but if you play it and like it you should buy it. Its not as if CA is Microsoft$ or something.

    Think that you have an extended demo version, now get the real thing.!

    The very first bullet point in the Org rules prohibits posts containing “anything piracy related”.

    Software piracy is outright theft, plain and simple.

    Do the right thing, pezhetairoi. Buy the game.
