_________________

Alright guys. That's all I could do for now. Kind of lazy at the moment... I apologize. I really wanted to do more but I just can't be bothered to do it right now. Anyway, I hope this gives you an idea of how to keep it going from here on out. I explore lots of All Land for the first few years. Then after resources start piling up, I go for mostly plains. At that point, you only explore All Land when you need more Iron and Wood for tools or more Hunters to feed your population every turn. Also explore more All Land if you need Gold for Mage Towers. I'll post my results from my last Barb start to give you an idea of when to start maging. Pretty simple really. Barb pro run is much easier than doing a Mongol. A lot less complicated.

Keys to success are 1: Always have enough Hunters to pay for your population every turn. Just enough, no more.

2: Only Explore All land when you need more wood and iron to sell for gold for more tools or to pay for your maging expense.

Like I said - pretty simple and easy pro run to do if you follow these tips I believe.

Anywho, that's really all I can think of for now. Maybe one day I might do some more years like to January 1010 - but for now, I cannot go on. Sorry guys.

Thx... Sorry I didn't do more but hopefully I gave people an idea of how to run a barb the right way. I'm sure a lot of guys think go all farms for food rather than getting some hunters... hunters help out a lot ... may not seem like much since it is only to pay for pop every turn but I think it really makes the pro run great. but yes, i didn't mention, farms are main source of food. plains should be nothing but mage towers and farms. just enough hunters to pay for population cost every turn. honestly really simple pro run. almost exactly ran like an inca pro run. I had great results with my inca ( Britney Spears ) ... never saved my score but i'm pretty sure I had something like 60+ RL and over 600k land when it was all said and done. I may do an inca start up sometime too.

Anyway guys, if you have any questions, feel free to leave them here. I check out the forum a lot so you should get a quick response from me.
