Open up your Idle and remove one of their lungs by talented talon, seal the wound and let them mix among your people, the next day collect the ignorant and remove one eye.

Do this without explanation or mercy and despite any promises or bribes.

Repeat this pattern for the a hand of the faithful(to anything but you) and pious, a leg of those whose have haste but no explanation the tongues of sycophants and the horns and fangs of the prudent. Preserve all these things in icor.

Chose one each day until your kingdom whispers of dissent.

Then make a proclamation that "all parts will be returned if you are brought the heads of all traitors in one fortnight ". Negotiate prices with surgeons of every calibre, burning heads as they arrive.

Then on the appointed date gathering all the jars of parts and pile them in the town quadrangle, make a last call for heads. The look to a seer who shall remain silent to seal the effect (nb. if you are know to be skilled in scrying this deception is not nesscersry)

Then torch all the jars which would be packed with tinder, announcing "blame lies with the traitors".

Do not stop those who would throw themselves into the fire the to save the parts.

So a short game this time? I think if we go with 10 tokens, we should take a smaller map size, as to force people into fights. Alternatively, more tokens (15?) and a bigger map. I like the random map setting, as it will prevent meta-gaming with the avatar creation.

So my opinion:

Either a short game:
Map Size: 12 / 14 / 16
Map Type: Great Rivers / Acheron's Locks / Dante's Peak / The Lake of Fire / Infernal Divide / Random
Place of Power: None / Rare / Uncommon / Common
Game Length: 10 / 15 / 20 / 25
Infernal Census : Yes / No
Rectification Content : Yes / No,

or a medium length game:
Map Size: 12 / 14 / 16
Map Type: Great Rivers / Acheron's Locks / Dante's Peak / The Lake of Fire / Infernal Divide / Random
Place of Power: None / Rare / Uncommon / Common
Game Length: 10 / 15 / 20 / 25
Infernal Census : Yes / No
Rectification Content : Yes / No.

I'll create my avatar tonight and submit it once I've got all the horns and orifices sorted out.

Edit: Changed my vote for Infernal Census for the shorter game.

Sarigs
24-07-2012, 09:30 AM
Hmm trying a smaller shorter map could be fun!

I'd vote for:

Map: 12
Type: Random
PoP: Rare (Again to encourage scraps)
Game Length: 15
Infernal Census: Yes
Rectification: Yes

Heliocentric
24-07-2012, 03:22 PM
Looking at the votes I'm generating and uploading the following

Map Size: 12 / 14 / 16
Map Type: Great Rivers / Acheron's Locks / Dante's Peak / The Lake of Fire / Infernal Divide / Random
Place of Power: None / Rare/ Uncommon / Common
Game Length: 10 / 15 / 20 / 25
Infernal Census : Yes / No
Rectification Content : Yes / No
Kittens: Yes / No

Note, the map randomisation will be resolved by coin toss And I made my Avatar already so I wont be able to benefit from my foreknowledge. Expect a dense game with lots of conflict and messy borders. Kittens waste too many order slots with chezeburgr meme pictures and drag the game down. I'm opting for infernal census despite knowing little about its implementation but really I can see this stop the game grinding to a halt when people 0 out of prestige.

I'm opting for infernal census despite knowing little about its implementation but really I can see this stop the game grinding to a halt when people 0 out of prestige.No worries, over here at Castle Evil we fill the spare kittens with chezeburgrz and put them away for rainy days. I also have no idea about how infernal census can affect a short game on a small map, but I guess the best way to find out is to give it a try.

Later when we're uploading our turns, it is also important to choose the correct file for the upload. You'll want to upload the ".trn"-file, not the savefile. I learned the hard way. ;) It's also really helpful to check the message you get when you're done with your turn and click the "end turn" button. It tells you when you have forgotten something, like responding to a message or paying upkeep costs (some legions require that).

Dont put the .sav in your new games folder, just the inviteI know. Re-uploaded my file. Sorry for that.

Edit: I think I know what caused the problem with the file. I had a "BastInc" game folder under "saves" after I toyed around with a first avatar build. I then re-downloaded the invitation-file (it gets deleted when you create your first turn-file) to submit my final build, which created a "BastInc-copy" folder. Therefore I guess that my turn-file was marked as part of a "BastInc-copy game" which resulted in the error you saw, Helio.

I have now deleted both folders, re-downloaded the invite and resubmitted my turn-file. Please let me know if everything's alright now. Sorry chaps.

They are recent immigrants from your lands and claim their pallor and ill health comes from the conditions in your tiny paddock. Apparently you smell like a horse's ass. I'm just going by what they told me. Normally I would simply feed these individuals to my pets, but I found that I get much more pleasure out of making them toil against their former mistress.

Dear Weebs of Cuddle Island

It seems you have been mislead by your immigrants, they were not workers, they were walking batteries to be drained of life to fuel more worthy beings. Their natural role is to travel to foreign lands and drain life, even from the very soil until they grow rosy in the cheek and plump of belly. Once they reach this state they will emigrate back to their rightful master, I send you this communication as they they will have already begun leaving following their natural homing instinct.

You may ask, why would I announce this, truth is the instances of this tool you have collected are far along in their life-cycles and are dramatically reduced in efficiency and have been replaced by younger versions.

I will look over the papers regarding your associated cost regardless and decide if they are reasonable for the effort invested by yourself and your peons.

To further clarify, the event only shows when a legion gets killed and doesn't say who's legion get's killed.

Heliocentric looked at the board to see that some legions that were there physically disappeared without vendetta etc which means they could only have gone on the crusade and made the assumption (correctly in my case) that the legions bought when the the crusade was announced were being sent off as well.

Play this event to call for a Great Unholy Crusade against Heaven's Ramparts. Each player may designate a legion for the expedition which will last 3 to 6 turns. Legions which survive will be greatly strengthened. The more legions that embark the better the chances of survival will be.

Another question:
How does outbidding work?
It just got to do with the resources asked or if I include another resource also counts towards the outbidding. I mean, if something asks for lets say 3 souls. Can I outbid someone with 3 souls and 1 ichor or only with more souls than the other person?

Resources are counted flat. I think draws go to higher ranks or to who ordered it first(as action are in a fixed order this is a good resolver)

So say a relic requires 10 souls, but you sent 10 souls and 3 hellfire, that's better than 12 souls. or 10 souls and 2 darkness. But a bid of 10 souls, 1 darkness 2 icor and 1 hellfire would win.

Add to this infernal negotiations ritual serves as a multiplier to all resources, probably based on the ritual roll. (like 1*(0.01*roll+modifier)) but equation is all guesswork.

According to the manual souls equals to two points in outbidding, while the other resources contribute just one point.
So in your first example, 12 souls is actually better than 10 souls and 3 hellfire.
I just wasn't sure about if all the resources counted or just the specifics to the item.
