Totally reworked for AoK:TC!! Version 2.0 addresses several "issues" with 1.3 including:
Accelerated start - More monks to start with, more starting resources, and a few more relics of course :P
More triggers! - I added more bonuses for conversions and capturing relics and included some catch-up triggers that ensure all players are able to reach Imperial Age.
Improved Balance - Extensive playtesting and progressive updates have resulted in a map that is almost TOO balanced. All players usually reach Imperial Age in under 30 minutes with a full population to boot. Simply having more units doesn't always work...
I have designed a 4 page article for the new version as well, featuring a full-map screenshot, an introduction for the newbie to Relic Roundup, a mini civ guide, and even some strategies to employ when playing. It can be found at toeclan.homestead.com; head on over to AoK Stuff :)
