Group IV


I am now sixty percent of the way through the Civilization IV tech tree, and things are certainly looking very modern.   To continue this through the next 20 technologies, I will certainly have to get clever, n'est pas?

I confess, the ones that worry me most are probably the last three of this group, fission, radio and refrigeration - but I'm sure with some research, I can apply my mind to these and figure something out.  I estimated it would take me nine months to complete the last group; in fact it took me 13.  At that rate, I shouldn't have these finished until the May 2013.

But it really depends on how I apply myself.

So far, the whole series has taken just over 33 months ... and will not end with the completion of the technologies.  I have considered additional series on the buildings, the religions, the various units and even the various resources in the game.  It's a terrific source for conteplative posts, and I'm not planning on giving it up for years to come.

I'm rather looking forward to how you decide to ruminate on Communism in terms of D&D.

We shall certainly be seeing the violence inherent in the system.
