I sit on my throne and I wonder... Is there someone out there for me?
I survey my tiny island kingdom and know that I'm supposed to think that it is enough. I have my many concubines to occupy my bed at night, my queen to bear the heirs that fill my heart and days with joy, but still I feel like only half of a soul.
Is there another king out there somewhere for me? Another leader of men, ruler of another small island nation, a drinker of life and salt air who would truly understand me for the man I am? Is he out there now, staring at the same stars as I, dreaming of the same armies, and the same immortal monuments?
I know he is, and I will find him! I shall build a great fleet to seek the twin of my soul, and when we find one another, we shall conquer this watery world as one!
'Twin Flames' will be an 8-player game with 4 teams of 2 players apiece. Partners are required to be the same nationality (in-game).
The world will be large, and littered with many small, mostly tropical, islands; lots of city-states; and more barbarians than normal.
We'll start in the Medieval era and play on 'Quick' speed.
The only victory conditions available will be military and diplomacy, which means you and your partner will have to either take everyone else's capitols or convince the city-states to band behind you against your opponents.
If you're not familiar, teams in Civ V work thus: Players start randomly in the world, so your partner might be on the other side of the world, and they might be on the next island over. Players on the same team share map data and technology automatically at all times and they win or lose as a team.
