This the thread for our Solium Infernum game. Current participants are desvergeh, Jolima, lasikbear, moth bones and myself but we have an empty space so if someone want to join before the game starts let us know.

I need lasikbear and moth bones email addresses to set up the Dropbox folder, so PM me and I'll get the game going tomorrow.

It seems like people people fancy a short game. Are there any (perhaps unusual) settings people would like to try?

Is this space still open? If so I'm more interested than Kerry Katona in a kebab shop.

Dropbox invitations have been sent out and you SI invitation will be in the folder. If you haven't done this before the whole process is detailed in the SI manual. Or just ask and we'll help out.

And if you have Dropbox installed in Windows (as opposed to just using the web version) may I also recommend this program http://dirlinker.codeplex.com/. After SI has created the directory for the multiplayer game you can use this program to create an NTFS junction pointer that links the Dropbox folder directly to the multiplayer save folder. This means you won't have to copy files around because SI will read and save the turns directly to the shared folder.

I'm away at my mum's this weekend so I might be a little slow but hopefully I'll get at least a couple of turns done.

Thanks for setting this all up!

Should be submitting my first (pre) turn tonight around 7pm EST.

Submitted my first save last night, let me know if I managed to screw it up somehow!

Nah, it's all good. First turn isready to go.

WTF my starting legion has a move of 1!

I am not impressed by the lazy buggers... so says Nhoj the mound of flesh.

Jolima

And you didn't go for the -1 to move trait? I thought all of them started with 2 move normally.

It seems like half of the demons in this corner of hell are just mounds of flesh. Should make it easy enough, no? :-)

Oh god I did go for that! What was I thinking!

Yeah, sloth is perhaps not the best perk for a short game. I hope you used to extra points for something suitably diabolical.

Next turn is ready.

I actually meant to go for obscure... must have clicked the wrong one. Well this will be interesting... or more likely painful.

Second screw up on my part, posted my last turn file in the wrong folder the other day. Fixed it now, sorry for the delay.

And another one.

Slow game so far, I have this funny feeling that everyone has gone for a very similar build.

No one else has gone for the mighty "Your legion has a move of 1" build!

I am alone in my "genius!"

Having never played against other people before, I just assumed we were in the beginning stage of "Take what you can and look sullenly at the guys taking things you can't".

Usually there is a bit more shopping action though. But heh, we're only on turn 5.

Some of us also like to use an advanced strategy called 'forget to use your second order slot on turn 1'.

moth bones
20-09-2011, 09:16 PM
Heh. I think the forthcoming mini-expansion is supposed to include a reminder for that.

When I first started playing I mistakenly believed that each hex of movement by a legion would take an individual order slot, so I would either only move my legion 1 hex or move it 2 and not put anything in the second order slot!

New turn out

Forgot to take my turn last night, sorry guys! Will get it in as soon as I can!

(Which won't be that soon, have a full workday to get through first)

Also forgot what our thread was called and told the other game the same thing.

Hey guys, demons, fleshy blobs,

I am going to be traveling till Sunday, so I might be a bit late for the next few days, sorry!

baboonanza
05-10-2011, 04:38 PM
No problem, thanks for letting us know.

lasikbear
10-10-2011, 03:36 AM
Finally submitted my turn, turns out its really hard to try to take a turn on a different computer. Sorry that took so long!

duff

sorry guys due to computer issues i wont be able to upload a turn until about wednesday.

Hey guys,

Sorry, but I am away for the next couple of days. After today I will not be able to process turns until next tuesday (15th). Sorry for any inconvenience.

baboonanza

No problem, I'm going to be away Friday to Monday anyway.

Am back, and have put my turn in.

baboonanza

It's been 13 days since the last turn and we're waiting on lasikbear. I've sent him an email and if I don't hear back in the next day or so I'll put him under AI control (you can do that right?) to get the game going again.

lasikbear
06-12-2011, 06:24 AM
Aaaah, sorry guys! I have been away to various places since November 22 and mostly away from computers. Just got back and submitted my turn, should be back to normal from now on! Feel free to take it out on me in game, but I'm not sure I could be doing much worse...

baboonanza
06-12-2011, 10:34 AM
Great, we're up and running again. Next turn is out.

Cower before your new ruler, I may grant pardons to those of you that suitably debase yourselves.
645

Good game guys. I genuinely wasn't expecting to win that at the half-way point, and then I managed to nick a +2 PoP off Nhoj and got really lucky with Zhol'Mak getting kicked out of the Garden of Infernal Delights. I never even got a third order slot!

desvergeh
24-01-2012, 11:32 AM
Wasn't a good game for me, mainly due to me clicking the wrong disadvantage when creating my avatar! Ooops!

Oh well gave me chance to try a few things that I don't normally. Must say Infernal Juggernaut is a fun ritual.

Thanks for the game, congratulations on the win.

Thanks for the game everyone, really enjoyed it. Anyone planning on playing another sometime?

I am always available for new games, at the pace they play there isn't really a limit to how many I can keep up with.
