Title: New game - Doom & Darkness EA
Koral - January 2, 2012 09:44 AM (GMT)
Usual settings, 8 players map is still to be decided. CBM latest.
Usual rules, no single commander block attacks, not copying fire commanders orders, NAPs are not binding but trades are. If I forgot to mention some abuse it doesn't mean it is allowed. And don't go AI without permission.
Koral - Vanheim
Hui - R'lyeh
Ghoul - Niefelheim
bgifu - aby
HoleyDoley - Hinnom
Mockingbird - Lanka
Lucheng - TC
Poldarn - Sauro
Open to suggestions on maps?

mockingbird - January 2, 2012 09:38 PM (GMT)
I'm presuming the latest version of CBM, all other settings default?
If so, I'd like to join as Hinnom.
Edit: It looks like I'm going to be in another game as Hinnom. Can I switch to Lanka, please?

Game is full, now we just need a map. Any suggestions?
Huitochka - January 5, 2012 11:11 PM (GMT)
Something with a lot of water.
Koral - January 7, 2012 01:11 PM (GMT)
Hmm, if we could get one more water player shatter lands would look ok.
Huitochka - January 8, 2012 12:33 AM (GMT)
Well if not then a map from rosewars seems alright.
lucheng - January 8, 2012 03:21 AM (GMT)
I have found 4 suitable maps in the llamasever map list.
(1) Mines and Farms
(the 37th map in the llamaserver map browser)
106land + 16 seahttp://forum.shrapnelgames.com//showthread.php?t=35822
I think this one is the best. The graph is from Heroes3. Terrain feature is clear.
(2) The Lonely Mermaid with fewer seashttp://forum.shrapnelgames.com/showthread....1939#post601939
(the 5th map from the bottom of the list in the llamaserver map browser)
99land + 14 seas
"The Lonely Mermaid" map has two versions. This one is modified by IndyPendant. 8 fixed starting locations, 7 land + 1 sea. It is named "The Lonely Mermaid(multiplayer)" in the game.
(the 3rd map from the bottom of the list in the llamaserver map browser)
108land + 17sea
A modified version of The Desert Eye. It's used in the game "Rosewars". 5 of the seas is separate from the other 12 seas with a land bridge.
(4) original version of "The Lonely Mermaid with fewer seas"
It is not in the list of llamasever map.
If you want more water, that's the choice. It is called "The Lonely Mermaid with fewer seas" in the game(Although it actually has more seas that another version)

Koral, you set the age at middle age, not EA.
Koral - January 9, 2012 10:21 AM (GMT)
Thanks, game fixed. Deleted an MA pretender as well.
ghoul31 - February 8, 2012 06:20 PM (GMT)
That's a nice Hall of Fame.
Huitochka - February 21, 2012 08:57 AM (GMT)
Kobal2 - February 21, 2012 03:22 PM (GMT)
Are these all Jarls, or are there regular Giants in the mix ?
Huitochka - February 22, 2012 06:31 AM (GMT)
Oh don't worry, they're all Jarls.
ghoul31 - February 24, 2012 09:55 PM (GMT)
4 on 1? I can't believe what worthless losers you guys are.
And I had a NAP +3 with van. Thats the last time I ever deal with Koral in Dominions.
BTW Van already has earth blood deep well and will have the most provinces by next turn. You are basically giving him the win
Huitochka - February 27, 2012 06:31 AM (GMT)
Sorry guys, i took the laptop with me somewhere but forgot the wifi modem. Gonna do the turn in next hours.
ghoul31 - February 29, 2012 11:32 AM (GMT)
make that 6 on one.
fuck you assholes. I should just go AI
jimbojones1971 - March 8, 2012 10:36 AM (GMT)
Is six on one even possible? I guess it depends how big you are. Still, sounds like a gang bang record in the making! :-)
One question: who didn't join in? (8 players, 6 vs 1 means one player sat it out).
ghoul31 - March 8, 2012 11:26 AM (GMT)
I defeated one player early on. Then the 6 players left attacked me.
Rejakor - March 8, 2012 03:51 PM (GMT)
That means you're doing well. Should probably diplomacy more though.
lucheng - March 17, 2012 05:23 AM (GMT)
Koral(Vanheim) and Huitocha(R'lyeh) has staled for 5 consecutive turns.
The admin log shows that admin (Koral?) postponed the hosting time over and over while still missing the turn.
Maybe we should extend the host interval to 48h, pause the game for some days, or find sub.
jimbojones1971 - March 17, 2012 07:28 AM (GMT)
Koral and Hui also disappeared in Rosewars.
If you want to continue the game, my recommendation would be to do what they did in Rosewars:
- ask llama for the games admin password
- pause the game, and check if either of the nations are still viable
- either set Van and R'yleh to AI (if they are done for) or get subs in
Good luck with it!
lucheng - March 17, 2012 09:32 AM (GMT)
Thank you for the information, jimbojones.
I've sent a PM to llamabeast for the password.

I've got the password. I'll take the role of admin at the moment.
Host inteval is changed to 36h. I've posted for subs for vanheim and R'lyhe. Game paused until subs are found. The sub for R'lyhe is found--Sensori.
I find that the atmosphere is not heated here. :huh: It's pretty embarrassing to see that recent post are more often from outsiders that from the own players of this game. So while waiting for the subs, I invite every one to introduce what has happend so far to his nation. Start from me B)
As T'ien Ch'i, My early expansion is not so successful, because two elephant provinces block on my way. Hinom proposed a NAP at the begining, and I agreed. Later I signed a NAP with Vanheim.
At about turn 15, when I was thinking about a plan to invade Nief(I don't know if my plan would work, and I never have a chance to know that now), I suddenly found that three of my provinces were taken by R'lyhe at the same time, and his next move was obviously my capital. The mind blasters are more powerful than I expected, they killed every tihing before my troops ever touch them. Then I realised that it's purely a duel of critical mass. I moved all my troops to the capital to defend it, and later recruited more and summoned animals. Finally I defeated R'lyhe after turtling some turns in the castle.
Then I tried a conter attack into the water. Hower, that doesen't work. I can't bring too many troops underwater. I can't even buy PD underwater. So I propose to cease fire, and he agreed.
At the same time, vanheim proposed some trade for gems and items. He got some death and fire gems from me, and I guess he forged them into skull mentor and lightless lanterns, thus got a good research. I also forged some frost rings for him, and he invite me to attack Nief. I'm not sure if I have helped Vanheim too much, but Nief is by far the number 1 at that time.
With a low income of money and gems, I thought that T'ien chi would be doomed to lose if sitting there doing nothing. So I agreed to attack Nief. At about turn 30, Vanheim launched his attack one turn later than me, due to stale :o . I thought Nief's main force is on the other side, so I have not scripted carefully for my armies. And then I found that Nief really sent only about 5 Jarls and sevearl mages to fight against me. But that turns out to be enough to defeat me. Well, it should be more appropiate to call it a massacre. All of my troops are chilled into ashes, and I lost about 100-200 troops and 20 commanders , including many precious mages. And T'ien Chi got severely weakened after that.
As far as I can see at the moment, the nations in good positions are Vanheim, Nief, Abysia and R'lyhe, whlie Tienchi, hinom and lanka are weaker. All of the countried had got some fighting, but none is really successful. I'm glad to hear some stories from the other parts of the world. How did sauro get conquered? Who was Lanka fighting against ?
Sensori - March 18, 2012 11:03 AM (GMT)
Okay, now that I've taken control of R'lyeh, I'd like to know of any possible agreements and/or wars I might be having. :P Since as it is, I'm sorta running blind!
Trumanator - March 18, 2012 11:59 PM (GMT)
I can take over Vanheim. PM me an details, and to ask for my email. Can't give up a chance to play against ghoul again :D
lucheng - March 19, 2012 04:14 AM (GMT)
Ok, subs are found. I've changed the E-mail to yours. You should get the new turn now.
Sensori - March 22, 2012 09:26 AM (GMT)
Soo, what's happening with Abysia's player? There hasn't been any announcement of needing time to send in a turn, has there? I guess you tend to hit the button for extra time once and then let the nation stale?
ghoul31 - April 1, 2012 01:04 PM (GMT)
Well I think Van has the game wrapped up at this point.
But everyone in the game continues to attack me for some reason.
Sensori - April 3, 2012 01:24 PM (GMT)
There goes the neighborhood! Utterly and completely devastated Nief's main army in my daring gambit. How many Jarls was that? Looks like a metric tonne! And since I took over all the surrounding provinces, EVERYTHING in there died!
Well played though ghoul. That was one MASSIVE fight!
ghoul31 - April 3, 2012 08:52 PM (GMT)
and now van will destroy you
and you will deserve it
that was the worst diplomacy I have ever seen. Everyone in the game has been working for the last 30 turns to let van win the game
Sensori - April 3, 2012 09:16 PM (GMT)
You take this game entirely too seriously, ghoul. I play this for fun, not to win. :( But that fight was something I haven't seen in a while, and in the end I was like saved by the bell. Only reason why you lost was the 50 turn limit, I think! That's exactly the reason that makes me play this thing, those really chilling sorts of fights that you prepare and prepare for and... Barely manage to come on top.
