to Realms Beyond Civilization!
We're a community, not a clan, that are spreading across the traditional
lines of game title and who are like-minded on several key points...
... to seek challenge and fun, not simply 'high score' or 'the
most elite stuff!'
... to excel is virtue
... to look to become friends with those you play with
... to treat others with respect, whether you agree with them
... to steadfastly avoid cheating
... especially those new to Realms Beyond
Here at realms beyond, we still have a very active community on our forums, with Pitboss, PBEM, and Adventure games still going strong, so I would encourage you to go over there. We will be renovating our front page here soon, so keep checking back for updates.

the forum thread for rules clarifications and updates so that everyone's
starting on the same page.

have to wait until you open it up to see!
are up for Epic Fourteen
- Boudica the Great and Adventure
Twenty-five - Doppelgänger as well.
- STOP THE PRESSES! We want everyone to be aware that Epic
Fifteen is currently on hold due to a game-destroying bug.
As sooooo states in this
appears there is a significant bug to the 3.13 patch regarding colonies
that neither myself or Sullla were aware of. Namely: If a civ has
been wiped out then a new colony will assume the status of the wiped
out civ (i.e. at war with the civ to wipe out the previous one).
If you wipe out a civ, and create a new colony, it will not be at
war with you but any vassals/previous colonies you have will be
at war with you (and break free from you). If any AI creates a colony
it and its vassal will become at war with you and your vassals (or
whoever wiped out the extinct civ). Also any cities you own that
belonged to the now extinct civ will yearn to join the motherland
of the new colony. Basically this stops you having more than one
colony without losing your previous ones, hence ruining the epic.
of that, we have decided to put Epic Fifteen on hold for the time
being until we have determined the best way to move forward with
this idea. When and if the game is restarted, it will be on a new
map with a new save. We're sorry to any of you who have spent significant
time playing this one already, but there is no fix available that
would still allow us to provide players with comparable playing
has put together Epic Sixteen
- Something Fishy, which will open right away and run through
the end of the year. We hope that you like sushi!
- Sooooo has sponsored Epic Fifteen
- Colonization, which opens today and will run through the

are up) and Epic Thirteen
- Potluck Expansion.
- Well, that was fast! It's reporting day for Adventure
Twenty-three - Speedy Gonzalez. Also, results are up for
Adventure Twenty-two - Brick by

- Finally, the patch is here! Now, where were we? That's right,
Adventure Twenty-four - It's a
Wonderful Life and Epic
Fourteen - Boudica the Great are now open. Remember, you
must patch before playing either game, so you might want to finish
Speedy Gonzalez first. Also, the Succession Games page is again
a note- Adventure Twenty-four is a four-week game, not a five-week
game (it was incorrectly marked before). If you were planning on
going down to the wire, you may have to adjust your schedule.
