Just to clarify, have you guys some experience with the game? Personally, I have only dabbled a little bit with the single player game, but not for very long. Of course I have read the rules, but if there are any unbelievably important things one should consider (for example when creating your avatar), I would be happy to hear them. Don't want to be out of the game before it has even started. :)

I've played a lot of single player, and done maybe 5 multiplayer sessions. I'm terrible at the game though, so don't worry about being singled out and annihilated.

Skydancer

I have played some single player games. You just need to get the hang of the mechanics such as the resolution order of stuff (like, rituals get in effect on the next turn, not straight away).

All right, we've got four, so we'll get started! Does everyone have a Dropbox account? It's been helpful with other PBEM games I've played, and it's free w/ registration. Send me a PM with your account name, and I'll add you to a shared folder once I get home from work tonight. If there are any objections, we can do it the new old-fashioned way via email.

As for recommendations, I'm not really an expert at the game, but my experience has taught me that avatars should be built to really excel at one or two things rather than generalizing. (The consequence is that you have to push that advantage in game while hiding or minimizing your weaknesses.) That, and charisma is not a dump stat.

Dear Gorgias,

Thank you for your letter, young people so rarely write letters these days so I truly appreciate that you took the time to put pen to paper. I read your list of Birthday presents you would like, I know you like surprises so I have gotten you something a little bit different. Can you guess what?
Love MortÚ

PS. I know people say that I and Melmoth look the same but they are wrong, that is a group photograph from our college days "GO SIGMA GAMMA". I'm the one balancing a sword on my head.

My thrall brought me a letter today, which I made him sing in D-sharp as I strummed his intestines. Imagine my surprise when I hear that one of my lessers had thought to sting me with nettled prose when asked to pay simple tribute. I shall put this missive down as some charming expression of your Gallic heritage and expect to receive the requested goods promptly. Oh, and I think you will find your new friends to be more of a burden than a boon.

Please do drop me a line whenever the fancy strikes - I have much rehearsing to do before the symphony.

As player's borders are moving ever closer to each other (How's it going, my dear southern neighbours?), the game is beginning to get interesting. I'm starting to wonder what kind of strategy everyone has in mind, who is buying all those Praetors, and who has already scryed the colour of my underpants.

By the way, how do you guys feel about the speed the game is going at? I really try to submit my turn every day and think that right now the pace is quite ok. Hope we can keep it up.

Sarigs
27-06-2012, 10:52 AM
Yeah I'm happy with the pace, can't guarentee that I won't miss a turn on a given evening if something comes up but I'd hit it the next morning almost certainly.

I've not got as far as a thinking of a strategy which is likely a mistake, just trying something new, it's the one game where I can never seem to keep pace (in gamE) with other players and can never quite figure out what people are doing differently!

Mostly, I am having a look at the map, then at the bazaar, then at my resources (then sigh) and then decide how I am going to spend my orders for the turn.

Vendetta day 2: Yesterday the Gorgon leader (apparently she is royalty for her kind) invaded the Mines of Gehenna in my name, and from what I hear she sought out and killed one of Gorgias's troops who were called slaves today... Were they actually slaves or it that a figure of speech, they'll be back as they are soul bound to Gorgias and cannot truly die unless Gorgias does. For what its worth all my followers keep their own freedom and I offer a comprehensive dental care package.

Last night I stuck the Rod of the Regent back into the return postage Fed Ex box it arrived in, I know they are delivering it at Gorgias next so I filled up the box with rattle snakes to stop the Rod rattling about in the box, my little joke with him.

Concerning: Indecent behaviour in public

Mr. Melmoth,

as legal representative of Mr. Pamphleticon I must inform you that a group of your minions has been found loitering in front of one of my client's establishments (i.e. the "Abbadon's Mouth" restaurant (Canton 6, Crux 12, Highway to Hell)). When addressed and asked to leave, the mentioned individuals refused to do so and claimed to be "The Chosen", to have been sent to spread the word of their "Master Melmoth".

I hereby file an official complaint against you as the responsible demon of the mentioned imps. My client expects you to reimburse him for the business lost due to your minions' inappropriate behaviour.

New Turn FYI

Dear Gorgias,

as you know the Gorgon Gentrification Construction Company(GGCC hereafter) have been monitoring the north western approach to your Stronghold, I don't want you to be alarmed as their interest in that area is purely in the fashion of maintainance. The roads and paving have been riddled with pot holes which smaller fiends can actually get out of and larger fiends get their feet/hooves/flagellum/claws stuck in the holes.
Obviously this is wrong and the GGCC set about to either level up or dig out and lay spikes in the pits and chasms, obsidian spikes was used where available locally and parasitic Coral spikes were drawn into existence where obsidian could not be locally be sourced as mandated by our sustainability policy.

This was obviously not without significant cost and this message holds as a writ of the works enacted and the cost associated.

Timely payment is requested to avoid the delay of further works in your area.

Yours unceasingly MortÚ

Indeed,

Chickenfeet your compliments against my mother can not go unpunished! Dare you face Thammuz the Dread Crimson Skull in single combat?

My mother's vileness will not go undefended!

Chickenfeet,

Your initial attempts to ridicule me failed miserably and your pathetic plan to extort what is rightfully mine will fail just as pitifully.


(Hopefully anyway I has a plan but it will require pin point timing which luckily will me in my favour for the next few turns as I'll have priority!)

Nah there's no way he can take priority from me without his window for pressing his claim expiring (He's got a full 4/5 round till he gets the sceptre which is the only turn he acts before me [Just bad luck on position])

If he doesn't press it then no harm no foul and if he does I get to play a risky gambit which will be gloriously painful for him if it works (And if it doesn't I'm in the same position anyhow) It's win/win baby!

Plus...you know I've not given any inkling as to what it may be so it's not like he can prep for it without guessing ;-)

They did say "It couldn't be done"

Curse of wrath, checked the wiki, checked the manual. I can only find items that give you a chance of earning it, cant identify what it actually is? Anyone care to divulge now that I'm out of the game?

Btw, can my turns be automated at this point? Or can someone scurry to finish me off?X_cot can you AI me? Not bitter about what happened btw, but this was a dying gambit, my Avatar was dreadful, and not just in a evil way.

I'm just going to post my starting build here, think people might find it surprising.

Martial Prowess: 0
Cunning: 0
Intellect: 0
Wickedness: 0
Charisma 2 (6 points) Not 4 as i was accused of having
Lord of hell (0 points) Worst thing in the whole build
Greed (0 points) a waste of 3 free points
Infernal Cardinal(8 points) This was actually useful
Devoted Minions (8 points) On the fence with this, but it wasnt worth the price
Inspirational leader (7)Completely poinbtless in every way
(1 spare point)
Yes, I wasted 23 points on perks, but I had never played the game before, so... eh?
I'll be honest my success as far as it went shocked me when I realised Avatars failings.

A few things I'll take away from this, I will never play as lord again, EVER! No point taking anything but greed or lust, no point thinking about the end of the game when it might not even get to that. Perks are mostly flavour and often outright poisonous. The lack of strategic choices with rituals encouraged me to take gorgons but honestly that much upkeep needs to be taken on responsibly.

I will enjoy writing up my progress thus far.

But I ask this, rather than me completely stepping aside is there any chance people could confide in me there reasonings (or at least make notes) when I write up?

I'll try to reconstruct the reasoning behind my choices during the game and let you know about that. Surprising setup indeed. I suspected (and told you at some point) that you had gone with 4 points in Charisma. Seems I was partially right. Pure charisma builds can easily be identified by checking the sum of attribute points of your bodyguard.

Concerning the Curse of Wrath: You might have figured out that it was me who played that (as I am the only one who has the means to receive the manuscript for that). What it does is halve the attributes of a legion and block any special abilities, both those that the legion possesses itself, as well as those granted by combat cards and preators. The owner of the cursed legion also loses an amount of prestige equal to the legion's loyality (I think) each turn. Duration is equal to the cursing player's Wrath attribute, minimum is 3 turns though. The target legion is chosen randomly, but it never can be a bodyguard. So I was a bit worried when I saw that you bought that extra legion the turn before I wanted to curse you.

Edit: This wiki page (http://si.battlespot.com/wiki/Curses) has a bit of information about the different curses.

Editedit: I agree with you on the danger perks pose to your play. However, some of the perks are really potent and almost necessary to get a certain build going. A good example for that would be the Prince of Lies perk. Without that, as a Deceit-oriented Fiend, you run a pretty high risk of your rituals failing, which you cannot afford to let happen.

Heliocentric
25-07-2012, 10:29 AM
Yeah, the maw was there to lessen the risk of random unit attacks, shame it hit the gorons then.
I'd rather burn up in a blaze of failure then fade away with a dreadful build, much less fun.

As hinted at by Helio, the new turn finds our beloved Gorgonite shuffling off the demonic coil. How will the grief-stricken denizens of Hell respond to this development?

Re: the game's events up until now, my initial plan was to put some heat on my nearest neighbor and solidify my flank. This idea evaporated instantly when the Gorgons appeared. I hoped that the upkeep might be too much, but that was not the case. I then recoiled and watched as the Gorgons overextended their territorial grasp. Obv, with no prestige, I couldn't do much to effect any changes. So I waited for my chance.

Ok, I am officially confused now. I see that some event (?) has cost me a legion. However I don't see two of Melmoth's guys. Therefore I suspect that either a) the same event has taken 2 legions from him or b) the legions have been hidden somehow. The only possible way of hiding a legion seems to be the lvl5 Deceit ritual, but that would hide all of his legions.

Can someone provide insight here? What did I miss?

They could have been killed by a unrelated event? I lost two unfortunately, one to Chickenfeet and the other to the event. Fortunately I think it Chickenfeet lost the legion that had just won the battle losing the artifact and Practorial attached (I think) which means my last PoP is safe for another turn!

Ah, that makes sense I guess. I was a bit suspicious about the disappearance of two legions at the same time. Looks like everyone except Gorgias has lost troops. My poor crawlers.

No I was the one trying to...."disarm" your legion as grabbing either the Prectoriate or Artifact should have left me surviving the infernal stage and destroying you in the ranged/melee action.

Since we all got hit, I think the event was the "Infernal Perfidy" one, which causes all purchased legions to undergo a loyalty test > 7. Higher-leveled minions thus had a better chance of surviving. Glad my ladies didn't fall victim.
