In 1000 AD by EC_Canada, you can control any of the 8 major factions that existed in Europe at the time. Take control of the Kingdom of England, Byzantine Empire, Kingdom of France, Umayyad Caliphate, Holy Roman Empire, Fatimid Caliphate, Kievian Russia, or the Kingdom of Leon, and change the course of history
The game is meant to be played with teams unlocked. There are pre-set relations, with the Fatimid and Umayyad Caliphate starting as allies, while the other 6 players begin hostile to all players. For balance purposes, the game is intended to be played with a full 8 players, but 7 players will suffice.
Note: All players begin in Castle Age, and Imperial Age can be researched, but chemistry cannot be researched. This means that no gunpowder or cannons will be available to any players.

The map was very well made. The only thing I don't like is that it focuses more on the area around the Mediterranean instead of entire Europe in there.
Some of the civs doesn't seem to balanced for me, but I can't really find a strongest civ, only the weakest, which seems to be England. Now I haven't played this with 8 human players, but some players, such as Yellow and grey seems to have most advantage.
A really nice map though. Maybe more balance and it would almost be perfect.

For the most part, the action was centered around the Mediterranean during that time period.
It is also meant to be historically accurate, not balanced for all civilizations. However, an 8 player diplomacy game on Voobly is always very fun and interesting!
Thanks for the comment. :)
