Lets Play! Europa 1400: The Guild
« on: February 21, 2010, 12:02:42 am »

I'm going to have a try at an LP of this game, one of my favourite games. Fairly old, there is a newer sequal out but I do not have it, I also do not have the games expansion. Anyway, one we go!

  But what is the Guild? Wikipedia sums it up best.

Quote
Europa 1400: The Guild (also titled Europa 1400 or The Guild) is a simulation game  set in Europe from the year 1400 up to 1815. In it, the player tries to guide a family dynasty to power and wealth, starting from one character of limited means. Players can choose from a variety of initial businesses (including iron smith, tavern, church and thieves' guild) and historic cities (including Berlin and London). As the family business and social standing grows, more options become available, even high political rank.  

But first things first!


 

You and your family settled in a large city in Europa, which was it?








What is your and your families name?

 

Ever since you were a child you looked upon the rich and noble in the world and yearned to be them, that is your goal.




Also, I need names for the children as we have them. I will keep at least 3 names at all times of both genders. Suggest names. 
First Child Male Name: Max
First Child Female Name: Mary
Second Child Male Name: Andrew
Second Child Female Name: Jane
Third Child Male Name: Mark
Third Child Female Name: Catherine

I vote Madrid, because it's awesome.

But then, life was also easier when I was running around here pretending to be a man, so I guess I should just "man up" and get back to work.

Well, you know how if you take your thumb and forefinger and hold them up to your eye, you can make it look like you're squishing someone's head? It's like that, only for real.

I like to slip into bear caves around midnight and gently caress the carnivore inside before leaving a small cut of fresh fish and sneaking out.

I have a vewy gweat fwiend in WOME called Biggus Dickus.

He has a wife you know. . . Do you know what she is called?

Incontinentia.

Anyway, I haven't played the original Guild. I found the series at TG2. Is the first one better? And will it even RUN on Windows7? :|

(There is a story behind this. . .)

This is an Alder Omelette. All craftsdwarfship is of highest quality. It is encircled with bands of cheese. It menaces with spikes of bacon, ham, and peppers. On the object is an image of dwarves in egg white. The dwarves are eating.

It runs on Vista, only need to set it to Windows 2000 compatibility. And I haven't play The Guild 2 (I plan on buying it soon though.) Anyway, I have the update ready to go, will post it after school.

Who should join the army and attain the rank of staff sergeant?

Also bump. School isn't two days long in the crazy timezones, is it?
