August MAGS

Okay guys, these are the rules for August:
Since my book idea is not as good as I thought, I quickly made up these rules. The only restriction is that it should be based in the XVI or XVII century and should have its own graphics. No other limitations.

Oooh, might just enter this one... would be my first try at a MAGS game. But then, it would be fun. :)

Hmm, is that the 16th and 17th centuries or the 1600s and 1700s?

Actually, as I always learned, 16th century is 1500-1600... and 17th century is 1700-1800.

That's why we're living in the 21st century and it's only 2003.

Right? :)

(As I've already started work on the game, I do hope something from 1620ish is viable).

Edit: Oi, editing your previous post now makes mine look stupid!  ;)

Dear god!  Haven't you people learned any history in school?  The 16th century would be the years 1500-1599, the 17th would be 1600-1699.

Very correct, Hobbes, although it actually contradicts the fact you were trying to state  :P

Wrong.

What was the first year of the first century? Zero? There IS no year zero.

Therefore 16th century is from 1601-1700 and 17th is from 1701-1800.

That's why the 21st century really started in 2001, not 2000 as everybody (like sheep) proclaimed.

I take great pleasure in telling people this. :D

LOL, this turned into a pretty weird and not correct conversation, while everyone was trying to show which years  are actually 16th and 17th century, they did mistakes, all i can say that Vel was the closest, and whilst TerranRich missed a whole century, but we got his point ;).
So to get it straight
16th century - 1501-1600
17th century - 1601-1700
But that is also contradictary, because we look at century as hunderds, so if you se 745 that is 8th century, but 700 should ALSO be 8th century, because we count the 7!
Roses are #FF0000
Violets are #0000FF

... You're right, I messed that up.

1st century AD = 1 to 100 (100 years)
2nd century AD = 101 to 200 ( ' ' )
etc. etc.

That's what I meant.  :-[ :)

Does it matter? It's not like any of us could manage to stay historical accurate anyway.

Yay! I finally get to use the harpsichord concerto I've been writing in an ags game. That is, if I ever finish the concerto... or even make this mags game, which I doubt.

Ah well.
