    Dominions 3: God of the Hill

    Victory conditions woo! This game will have a VP on every capital. Own more than half the capitals to win.

    http://www.llamaserver.net/gameinfo....SGodoftheHill2

    Players: 6-8 land, 0-1 water
    Map: Streamlands (see below for links)
    Age: MA only
    Mods: CBM 1.95b
    Turn times: 36h to start, extensions on request.

    The victory conditions for this should mean lots of diplomacy going on so we need to allow time for that, however I'd like to keep the game moving and don't plan on delaying for people who've gone silent. If you need a turn extension, ask.

    I'll give it until Saturday evening for signups, then start Sunday evening or as soon as everyone's picked a nation.

    Player - Nation:
    1. Kelron - C'tis
    2. CKScientist - Ashdod
    3. Heliocentric - Abysia
    4. Nahru2 - Machaka
    5. Screwie - R'lyeh
    6. Jameshank1 - T'ien Chi
    7. Eschatos - Vanheim
    8. Rotekian - Agartha
    9. Dominicus - Man

    I have a few nations I'm wanting to try. So I'll let others get their picks in early. The hq conquer requirement is a funny choice as clearly, everyone with has guard their own HQ fiercely.

    I would caution against allowing a water hq race, but I suppose it's not so bad because those races typically lack shields and suffer during battles above the sea.

    Obviously people will guard their capitals regardless. I have 3 reasons for the victory condition.

    1. Doesn't require full map conquest to win. It's ok to have a water nation because you don't necessarily need to kill them, and they'll have trouble attacking land.

    2. Encourages combat. You can't sit on your ass accumulating gold and researching endgame spells the whole time, because other peope will be out there trying to conquer victory points.

    3. Encourages diplomacy (and treachery). It will be in your interest to defend weak players from their neighbours... so you can take their capital for yourself.

    This sounds fun. I haven't played the game yet but own a copy and was planning to learn the ropes of Dominions anyway. How much preparation would you say is needed to get "into shape" for a MP game?

    A lot. But do not let this discourage you. I have played a tutorial up to (around) 15th turn, one small random map game with 1 opponent up until 20th (?) turn - basically I got bored so I quit, and I am still playing RPSAlexander.

    Here, have a few links:

    http://lparchive.org/Dominions-3/ (Useful to a degree, since the author fails to mention some important things earlier, in my opinion. Still - recommended.)

    http://dom3.servegame.com/wiki/Main_Page (Use with the manual.)

    http://dom3-mod-inspector.googlecode...?mod=CB1.94.dm (For the mod mentioned as required.)

    EDIT 2:

    The link for CBM 1.94. You could put it in the OP Kelron.

    My answer is this, play an sp game, tiny random map. Get stomped, understand what happened generally. Read abit at the good wiki http://dom3.servegame.com/wiki/Main_Page fiddle about with the dom 3 mod inspector for cbm http://dom3-mod-inspector.googlecode...?mod=CB1.94.dm

    And be happy to lose, the real school of dominions 3 is losing at he hands of another player(or yourself if you are particularly rubbish ).

    As long as you don't pick Ulm or Agartha, you'll do fine.

    Thanks for the input, I'll be sitting this one out then. Read a good portion of the manual a while back and gave the wiki a look too, even started a game. Will dig into it some more.

    Btw if anyone's thinking of picking a water nation, those rivers connect water provinces.

    What, I am away for 1 day and no one added me to the list even though I already said I would join in the other thread.....

    Ah well, I will need to have to look into water nations, as I was hoping this to be MA and I really wanted to play MA man. So if anyone wishes to play with the fishies, then just say so. I will look into the water nations and make a pick before saturday evening.
