Scenario Name: January 2003 2 Player "King of the Hill"

I was trying to do was recreate for the players some of the same
sense of awe and wonder that the Spanish Conquistadors must have
experienced in their campaign against the Aztecs in the mid 1500's. The
players will continually encounter things that they have not encountered
before (I think, as I have not seen to date any other PBEM games
incorporate some of the things that I have done here), and they will be
continually be awed by what the AI is capable of in this game (I liken
the AI's Power Chart reading in this game to chasing a rainbow: you can
always see where the rainbow touches down, but no matter how hard you
pursue it, you can never reach it!). The only way to win this game is by
military conquest, and after playtesting this in a myriad of
variations, I have focalized the human player's capabilities into an
achievable avenue: it is my belief that a persistent, disciplined
Momentum Player with a Plan, will triumph.

Btw the name I used for this scenario is "King of the Hill".

We are no longer particularly in the business of writing software to perform specific tasks. We now teach the software how to learn, and in the primary bonding process it molds itself around the task to be performed. The feedback loop never really ends, so a tenth year polysentience can be a priceless jewel or a psychotic wreck, but it is the primary bonding process?the childhood, if you will?that has the most far-reaching repercussions.
