The premise is simple, small map(random by coinflip), short game, common places of power, rect and census on (not that it will matter much).

Expect lots of short conflicts, messy borders and desperate alliances.

The first contender has entered the ring!

In his mortal life, El Cucharacha roamed the US of A, attending all of the most bloodthirsty* and dangerous** sports entertainment events. Feared*** as the younger brother of a notorious Mexican ganglord, he won**** title after title through use of his signature move, the Quadropod.

However, when his popularity rose among gullible 13-16 year old males, six consecutive deaths***** caused by people attempting to copy the Quadropod****** resulted in his arrest by mortal authorities. Early reports claimed that he was actually an actor from New Jersey, however these reports were quickly revealed to be false information, El Cucharacha was deported to Mexico, and in an unconnected series of events the local mayor and Senate member were re-elected for the next term thanks to their tough stance on crime. The athlete******* was shanked 14 hours later.

Condemned to Hell for an overabundance of parking tickets, El Cucharacha took the form of his demonic namesake, and quickly rose through the ranks. Now he finds himself in the greatest fight of his existence! Will he find himself pinned under the greater experience of his opponents, or will his grasp of politics ensure his victory in this most chaotic of battles?

* Blood censored for suitability for teen audiences

** Statement from the mortal organization - "Don't try this at home kids!"

*** Many other wrestlers would proclaim how much "They don't want to get in the ring with that freak" before proceeding to get in the ring with him, or else fight in the backrooms in front of an accidental camera

**** Miraculously, always after a long build-up and storyline that led to just this climax, or completely out of the blue as a last minute surprise, and never when expected or just as a "Oh, I guess he deserves it" type victory.

***** Statement from the mortal organization - "Wait...what!? We're not...! Wait, let me get my pants on. You! Get outta here! We're totally not liable for this! We had a warning and everything! We didn't even license that move! Totally his own invention. We told him not to do it. Look here, contracted and everything. Whew, I knew I had all this paperwork forged for a reason. Wait, stop recording. Give me that!"

****** All deaths were from the persons attempting to perform the actual move. The 'victims' on whom the move was performed reported only mild surprise and slight tickling.

Or I could just make a deal with Skittles for 2nd place, and help him wipe out the rest of you...

carnage4u
05-10-2012, 03:18 PM
I think its his choice to kill me or you next. lol The beast may take out all players before turn 40 and where at this point he will probably auto win anyway.

2nd place in hell doesnt seem like a good thing. 1st or nothing, and I think for us, its nothing. lol

desvergeh
05-10-2012, 03:38 PM
Hehe yeah true, will try for 1st. I have a pretty strong habit for finishing 2nd in this game. Sometimes from brokering deals after things turn bad, sometimes from just not quite being good enough.

I was expecting to finish this game 2nd on a prestige win. So would seem normal in a way to end up 2nd on an usurption win too!

Every game I seem to learn something. This game I have figured out how the new "curse of..." artifacts and praetors work.

I have a question about mechanics.

Somewhere in the middle of Skittles's rampage of terror, I offered to become Ar'zazz's Blood Vassal, figuring I could give him permissions to move through my territory to take on the heretic, and I'd secure myself a nifty 2nd place into the bargain. Although he never replied to my PM (*shakey fist*) I tried to offer it in-game anyway, but couldn't find where the hell you do it.

My best guess was that it was under the Diplomatic Interactions, but I couldn't seem to do anything there.

So 2 questions:
How do you become a Blood Vassal?
And are all diplomatic actions disallowed when you have heretics running amok?

Heliocentric
09-10-2012, 12:33 PM
you need to have half the cantons and half the prestiege, the other player must accept an invite sent by the vassal, remember there are reasons to refuse with "power" behind the throne.


And are all diplomatic actions disallowed when you have heretics running amok?Yeah, essentially pandemonium cannot process the diplomatics if it is conquered.

Remember sometimes you attack panda not to conquer it but to become excommunicated so you can kill everyone else. That wouldn't block everyone else's diplomacy.

Yeah, I couldn't send the request in-game because Skittles was currently busy torturing all the bureaucrats that we needed to do the paperwork for it.
