    Well, I'm happy to use the blog I set up if people supply me with turn-write ups: one plost post per faction every (couple of) turns. I don't mind giving you all posting-privileges.

    Of course, we are getting ahead of ourselves as the saga has yet to commence.

    I'll happily chip in on the occasional status report. Nerae is, after all, the Queen of Eloquence.

    Can you get your Pretenders to Innocent's Dropboxfolder until Thursday so we can start?

    I've got everyone linked on Dropbox except one. Please put your email address (or just your game name if you don't want everyone having access to your email, though they will through DB anyway). Then yes, I'll need your pretender design.

    It will be saved in dominions3/savedgames/newlords. It will be a file along the lines of early_ctis_0.2h

    I sent you a PM with me my e-mail address. I'll put my pretender there once the folder is shared with me.

    EDIT: Submitted!

    Dropping my pretender (I mean, the one true GOD!) in the DB folder now.

    Great! So everyone is confirmed. I'll have everything set up in... maybe an hour. There will be instructions in the Dropbox for anyone unfamiliar with how this will work.

  7. #67
    Okay, so the instructions are up as is the Turn 0 folder! The game is on!

    Just a warning that the first turn or two of Dom3 has a tendency to be very glitchy. If you have a problem, just contact me here, by email, or on Steam, and I'll work it out.

    Good luck, fellow pretenders!

    Seems like it'll go a lot faster than a week per turn at this rate. Also, in the instructions; 8. Prophet! Lulz
    About the map, there's a large island to the west. It seems like you might be able to move troops across to the mainland via a land bridge above the lake at the bottom? Or would you need amphibious troops to get off the island?

    I was playing a single player game with an aquatic nation, and encountered something I couldn't explain: I had an amphibious commander, commanding only amphibious troops, and yet I couldn't move him to a land province. Why?

    Sometimes (very rarely) in randomly generated maps, not all provinces are properly connected with each other. You can hit "8" to switch on connections, I definitely recommend it.

    The two bridges down there are a land connection, and apart from having a vast amount of water to play with, which makes me happy, I rather like the map for its fun chokepoints.

    The currents protecting the Pearled Palace parted, allowing the mermen of Oceania to enter.

    What news from the Queen?, the leader of the squadron asked the royal attendee when he joined the council in a hall of white sharkbone.

    The nobles of the councils looked at him, and finally a merman clad in amber, bearing the insignias marking him a high noble at the court, replied. The Queen is silent in her mourning for what must be done. The heretics must be purged before they bring their darkness over both land and seas, for false Gods manipulate the minds of the weak.

    The troop-leader nodded. I will pass the orders and summon the triton knights from their slumber.

    On the tide of dawn, Oceania rides the waves to war.

    I think this random map should be great, but I probably shouldn't discuss why I chose it until the game is done (as the discussion would include considerations of strategic potential, which everyone should discover for themselves!).

    So who all is taking notes for an after-action report?

    Is there a way to save a screenshot of the game without having to paste it manually to a different program after each print-screen button press?

    FRAPS? That'll save the screenies to a folder. Though the free trial version only saves in .bmp I think.

    I put it in and later it was removed, so I assume riadsala took it out.

    (checks DB history)

    Yep, he took it out. So he'll put in the .2h whenever he's done with his turn, I'm sure.

    Yep... on my list of things todo today.

    I assume the 1-turn-per-week has changed into 1-turn-per-day in all the enthusiastic excitment!
