Disney thread has about 40 days left in it, so we should be able to start up by mid-January. Still not 100% sure which direction to go in. I've got two big ideas: Rule the New World (choose an empire to sail for, colonize North and South America, befriend or do battle with Native Americans, revolt, so on, so forth) or Cold War (play as a small nation beneath the heels of the US and USSR, try and shift control back and forth between them, or even grow into a third superpower). Any thoughts on those? I'd be happy running either, frankly. Both have some "unfun" aspects (New World would have complex expansion mechanics, Cold War would have a lot of NPCs), but I think the concepts and mechanics would be strong for both.
