sure. and weird.
Sorry to drag this out further, but I just realized I'd (almost) made a terrible mistake. I deleted my turn and will upload a new one this evening (~7ish PM CET).
Turn's up, sorry again.
Oh dear. It looks like Aster will need to start grovelling for his life at this rate. Only 1 canton left between him and certain doom.
He could still get out of this one sans the grovelling if he can destroy carnage's main legion on this turn. If he doesn't, well, his stronghold is in dire need of renovating anyway. Might as well tear the whole thing down, really.
Not just 1 turn. 1 order slot. Even if he wins the vendetta, if he loses all his cantons in the process; he's dead.
Edit: Actually I can think of a way to survive 1 more turn, so yeah he has this turn at best.
He had the best of me earlier in the game, so I was saving up for if he tried to challenge me again. He still has some hex's though, so I'll try to help fix that problem.
does something bad happen if a person doesnt control any crux around their homebase?
From the manual.
A Disgraced House:
A player may claim Blood Feud against an opponent whose house is currently in a state of disgrace. Disgrace happens when a player only controls the Canton of his Stronghold. This state of impotence allows any bordering player to claim Blood Feud and, therefore, be allowed to put this disgraced player out of everyone’s misery.
After a player is eliminated their stronghold counts as a PoP and gives prestige.
I think that a player that holds no cantons can get one without vendetta by purchasing a legion. It will claim one of the cantons next to the stronghold. So if the player is quick he can avoid the blood feud.
No, buying a Legion won't work. Returning from death or unholy war will getting kicked out of enemy territory at the end of a vendetta will "open a door".
so what happens if you buy a legion without cantons?
The same thing that happens when you take a PoP when you don't own any of the surrounding cantons (such as by flight). The legion dies.
There are event cards that give cantons.
It seems we need to give Aster some applause. Well done.
I'm no where near my computer to log in. I assume it was mine. lol. I should have kept with my orginal plan. People had me rethink my strat and probably cost myself.
Before this game is over I will make sure he is out of the game, even at the cost of my own empire. Vengenance!!!!
That was magnificent! My hat's off to you, you crazy bastard.
