Q. Who the hell is Alcibiades?
A. Alcibiades was Athenian statesman and military advisor in the Peloponnesian War. He switched his allegiances from Athens to Sparta, helping them fight against
Athens. After making enemies in Sparta, he leaves to join the Persians. For those still unsure, Alcibiades is supposed to mean Aken Bosch.
Q. What's Alcibiades' Gamble about?
A. Alcibiades' Gamble is the story of the NTF rebellion in and around Sirius. It is told from the point of view of the GTVA pilots who fought the war up until the start
of the FS2 main story. The story deals directly with the loss of all the systems to the NTF and the damage sustained up until the first fights of FS2 main.
Q. What do I need to play Alcibiades' Gamble?
A. Alcibiade's Gamble will require a 3.6.10 build. We recommend the latest nightly build.
Q. Are there any mods?
A. The demo contains a few minor graphical mods, including a gorgeous planet created by Rodo.
Q. Are there any Shivans?
A. Nope, Alcibiades' Gamble tells the the story of the NTF rebellion from the standpoint of GTVA pilots. The Shivans don't appear until FS2 Main.
