Third Odyssey - Return to the Motherland (A Semi-Interactive AAR)
The Emperor looks upon his realm, and despairs.
Constantinople was the center of a dying empire, carrying the last light of the Romans. Opportunism among brethren and the hostility of an age-old enemy have carved up the pieces of the declining realm to expand their own dominion. The Varna Crusaders, the last chance to save Constantinople, have been left butchered. Now, the final age of the Eastern Roman Empire is merely looming upon the horizon.
In ancient times, her legions conquered the known world. Her science and knowledge would spread information from one corner of her prosperous empire to another, and the legacy that she would leave behind would change the very nature of the civilizations she had once ruled over. But that was long ago.
Surrounded by enemies upon all sides, the Emperor looks into classical inspiration in a desperate means to save his people and the legacy of the Romans from being extinguished forever. Faced with no other option, the last vestiges of the Romans would abandon the old world, venturing into the unknown as they were set to alter the course of history forever...
Aims of the game:
- Survive in the New World and establish the Elysian Empire
- Become the undisputed hegemon in the New World and beyond
- To become the #1 Great Power by the end of the AAR
- Have the world's most powerful navy or army. Or both.
- Liberate the Motherland from the Ottoman Empire!
1: As a story-centric AAR writer, Ironman will not be used
2: I will sometimes alter the map to clean up borders, give myself a challenge, make things ‘natural’
3: When a vote is conducted, the period of voting will last for five days. Upon voting, the highest voted decision will become added into the story. There would be no revotes, and the decision made will have a big impact on the future events of the story.
