I'd like to join as Abysia. No preference for any particular map.

And I might very well name my pretender Global Warming. Man, why didn't I think of that?

I'll just call dibs on MA Ulm. It's time for a one-trick pony.

I'd like to note that the current version of CBM makes them seriously overpowered. No, really. I'm not joking. I'm perfectly serious.

Their priests get spells that paralyze undead, paralyze demons, paralyze magic beings, grant 50% resistance to a given element, or duplicate legions of steel. They get good SCs and thugs and cheap equipment for said SCs and thugs. And their infantry is actually good. Oh, and their cap-only units absolutely murder sacred units.

Here's a link to a discussion about it.

Level 0 forge of the ancients.
LOL!

You're right, they no longer seem to be quite the same nation I remember.
Oh, well, I'll look for something else. Maybe Machaka?

You could also try that Dominions Enhanced mod, which changes things in a different way. Unless you're dead set on CBM.

It's all to be decided. Although I do like the Forbidden Friendship we're playing in round 8, I'm not averse to trying out something new.

Giving Ulm a Forge bonus AND a level 0 forge... is that a -75% cost +1 level forging ability?

I also approve of forbidden friendship.

If we go late age, I'd like to have atlantis. I also might have a friend who's interested in joining a MP game for the first time.

I'd like to join. Unless you guys want a serious competitive game (I'm kinda new to multiplayer dominions). No preference for mods, though I would be grateful if someone pointed me towards their descriptions (or better yet some sort of wiki)

I'll take LA Ermor for some zombie apocalypse fun.

I'd like to give this another shot!
For EA, I'd like to take Niefelheim. MA I don't know yet and LA I'd like to take R'lyeh.

descriptions (or better yet some sort of wiki)
wiki:
http://dom3.servegame.com/wiki/Main_Page
The regular dom3 wiki, it does sport a link to CBM's unit/spell/item browser.

dom3 on Shrapnel forums:
http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/forumdisplay.php?f=138

Some mods downloads. Incluiding:
CBM 1.92
Forbidden Friendship 2.1
Other People's Mods v.4
[download links for both here: http://www.proactiveapathy.com/dom3/mods/mods.html]
Dominions Enchanced 0.13
[download link here: https://sites.google.com/site/dominionsenhancedmod/home/dominionsenhanced_alpha_0_13.zip?attredirects=0&d=1]

Llamaserver's map and mod browser:
http://www.llamaserver.net/mapModBrowser.cgi


The mod links are mostly for downloading and trying them out, as concise descriptions are quite hard to find.

Generally speaking, CBM is currently the most balanced one, while those other mentioned above are more fun/extreme/overpowered. They all don't differ that much, as they tend to be based off each other.

Best thing to do is to load a mod and see how the nation of your choice looks like in it.

I'm doing that (played Forbidden Friendship 2.1 LA:Ermor, now I'm playing er... whoever has the goatheaded giants in the Early Age.) I was just hoping there would be a good analysis. Oh well, back to conquering the world, I guess.

Seems like LA is winning.
TempAcc, what about that friend of yours? Is (s)he going to play?
