Dominions 5 Round 06 - The end
« on: June 20, 2022, 04:35:08 am »

Come forth, state your claim.
Whether an ancient spirit, knowing and jaded - or a brazen upstart, quick and unfettered.
The world is not yet formed, but the plans of gods span aeons.



As the void parts, firm land takes root. Life will soon follow.



In a time long past, a claimant took reign. Unwelcome, unchallenged. But his dominion wanes. Pretenders stir in their slumber.

There was some interest in another round, so let's have it.

Rules are subject to discussion, but there's a strong suggestion it should be EA, with lots of thrones and a wraparound map of sorts.

If we get enough players we might use the Floating Archipelago map. 'Cause it's pretty AF.

 
Also, I'd rather nobody picked Ubar - it's kinda op, imo, and forces everyone to take specific counters in god design.

I'm in, EA Marverni I guess. Might change so if someone has a preference, let me know.

Will be my first dom5 Multiplayer game. Since 2018,I forgot, okay Azthor?

Ah, yes. I should state I'd like to play Kailasa. But am open to reneging on them if somebody else wants to return to monke.

I tried to play chess but two of my opponents were playing competitive checkers as a third person walked in with Game of Thrones in hand confused cause they thought this was the book club.

I'm also quite inexperienced, but I'd like to try EA Yomi.

Thanks for starting this thread. Putting myself in for a spot- nation TBD. Maybe Mictlan for the nostalgia.

You know, I don't mind some of those sub mods- mercs, heroes, and better arena are pretty low impact and might even provide some extra fun. But, the rest of the package has pretty substantive balance and content changes and I'm too old and stuck in my way to adapt.

And I guess barring any groundshaking game state changes, I will be going with my feathered blood boys.

Yeah, same thoughts on the mods from me.

Also, I'm thinking, let's not rush this game. I'd give it a good week more on recruitment before start considering moving on. A few more people mentioned wanting to play, and they haven't shown up yet.

I am in too, tentatively with Fomoria. Though I could do Arco instead, if anyone wants Fomoria.

I'll join. This will be my first competitive multiplayer game, though I'm fairly familiar with broad game concepts. I am thinking of playing Agartha.

I already deeply regret this for many reasons, but i'm taking Pangaea. Eh, if we would play in late era, I would have picked neutral temperature Ragha. No idea why I have never played it. But we are playing in early era, so my build is not neglected intended way, but plain contrarianism.
And here's what I would actually want to play... but nobody else wants to. NOBODY. And for a reason!
EDIT: Bleh. I somehow still have no clue what you are supposed to do with Nature magic in combat.
Will be my first dom5 Multiplayer game.
Oh, we are going the way of "play with me, i am newbie too" now?  :P
