Another good find, it's nice to see this one do it a bit different where you can have different style maps on it like world war or Napoleonic Wars, all others i've seen like this (theres hundreds) all look boring, nice to see one break the mold!

As always good find!

Nice game, tried it - but it's to "more of the same".
You got only 2 unit types and the diplomacy aspect is resolved before the game starts, you cannot betrayal your allies and make peace with the one you attack.
It's a nice game, but I think it will get boring fast.

On the other hand I would love a game like Warlords 2,3 (and I am aware of the FOSS projects).
