Dominions 3 PBEM - Round Four = finished.
« on: August 07, 2010, 10:59:00 am »

As I still haven't got my fill of winning, I've decided to start another game.
Useful links:
The wiki, with loads of useful information.

Llama Server, which is the automatic hosting server we'll be using.
Llama Server's map and mod browser.

Unless some vehement opposition to it somehow arises, we'll most likely end up using the Conceptual Balance Mod, v.1.6. Which you can get here.



Here's the game's page:
http://www.llamaserver.net/gameinfo.cgi?game=Bay12Games4

Other options:
Victory by victory points - 5 on the map, 4 needed to win.
Magic site frequency increased by 5 percent(to 45).
Era is Middle.

As a reminder of how things work: you'll be recieiving .trn files from llama server, which you shoud put into a {dom3dir}/savedgames/{whatevernameyouwant}/
After finishing your moves, a new .2h file will appear in that folder, which you should send to the same address from which you've recieved your .trn file.

The list of players:
1.Il Palazzo - C'tis
2.Kebooo - Marignon
3.Lorak - Ermor
4.Happerry - T'ien Ch'i
5.AlfFan - Shinuyama
6.Puntocom - Abysia
7.Ravenlord - Pythium

What a half-hearted response.
You WILL play! In fact, you've got all new and grand strategy prepared, just waiting for a glorious execution. Etc.
Any thoughts on the setup?

I voted middle just to piss Il Palazzo off.  Me bitter? Never...

Dunno whether I can commit to playing.  Part of me really wants another go at this, but most of me knows that I don't really have the time for this game.

EDIT: Il Palazzo, you really should have quit when you were ahead.  Here's a draft of somebody's first turn personal message to everyone but you:

To: All but Il Palazzo
From: Sender
RE: Beating Il Palazzo
Dudes, remember when we all lost to that barbarian king?  Let's gang up on him!
Sincerely, Somebody who lost last game.

We'll forget my ignoble surrender, for now...

That's fine, EuchreJack, I'm willing to experience being zerg rushed and annihilated for once. Winning all the time is boring, no?[/bragging]

Let us know if you'll decide to join after all.

One more organisational thingie: I suppose the turn hosting interval will be set around 48h. Should give those of us with mundane commitments a lot of time to, well, find the time to play.
Having the above, as well as the supposedly large map size in consideration, I'd predict this game to take a bit longer than the last one.

Anyway, more players please!

I'm in.  I actually kinda enjoyed all those lightning strikes...   Plus that one battle Il Palazzo and I had was awesome, so I wouldn't mind watching something like that again.

I want more players, though!!  You people reading this - This game is awesome!  I think the fact that pretty much everyone from the previous game is ready to go again is testament to this. 

Plus, don't be worried if you've never played, or you think you'll suck.  I think most of us proved ourselves to be pretty terrible last time around!  But one of the great things I found out last time is that no matter how terrible you are, you can still lie, backstab, and bribe your way to a third place finish!

This is a video of said battle between Il Palazzo and myself.  Maybe seeing this can entice some people on the fence to get this game and join us in glory!!   ... Or maybe it'll scare them away.

Tie breaker!  I voted Middle, cause I've never played it.

Edit:  Also, is there a reason that you very rarely/never see people play on a random map?  I have absolutely no problem with random maps if that would be the best solution to our player:province ratio.  I wouldn't mind a bigger map, but I don't think we should go -too- big... and if we do go too big, we should consider increasing the magical research difficulty.

Last time I got attacked before I had any considerable research finished.  So I ended up not learning much of anything about the magic system.  I'd like to be able to dabble in some advanced magic for once.

Fair enough!  All right, I retract my previous statement suggesting increased research difficulty if we choose a very large map!

Still alive and kicking?

I've played this game enough to understand basic system how it works so I decided to play my first online game then.
Middle or high era is my fav, warhammer map is okay by me.

country i want to play in this order:

most favorable -> least favorable playable.

Midgard > Marignon > Jomon> Arcoscephale

That's.... that's kinda... stalkerish.  If only you had Pythium in there, I'd be really scared.  But we have another player!  :-D

All right!
