    He can now attack 5 times per turn, and nearly always has a 99.9% chance of winning.

    I'll probably give this a break for a few evenings, then write up the next chapter (which I've already played out).

    Then might play some more next week :)

    Well, the game is now done. I just need to find some free time to write up the last few chapters.

    All finished. Thank you for reading.

    Any feedback welcome. If anybody is interested, I might do another one, with a different race and make more of an effort to win (now that I have a better idea of how the mod works).

    Another reader here, thanks for writing and please keep at it.

    I spent a lot of time with that mod from shortly before Beyond the Sword came out until shortly after it left beta, which makes it... mid-2007 until early 2009. I can't afford to get addicted to that again now so your writing makes a fine substitute. :-)

    Well, as my last AAR seemed to go down quite well, I've returned to FfH2 for another game. The story starts here.

    Any feedback, critism, comments, etc most welcome.

    Ooh, this is good stuff! It may be just enough motivation to get back into FfH2 again after a year hiatus.

    Get Rise from Erebus instead. I am liking it better, lots of new stuff and more development since FFH2 has been stagnant for 2+ years.

    Thirteen new civs?! That sounds quite daunting to grapple with in addition to familiarizing myself with the FFH mechanics again. Pakoito, what's the mod's best selling point for you?

    Bigger, better, more balanced and improved interface?

    I may be trying Master of Mana tomorrow too. Same concept, different implementation, magic oriented. http://www.masterofmana.com/phpBB3/viewforum.php?f=10

    I tried some of them, but didn't get on that well. "more" doesn't always equal "better." but that's just a personal taste thing.

    After a month of not playing Civ, I've returned to the game and am making good progress towards finishing :)

    Thanks for keeping this going; it's been a good read, especially because I have never tried the orcs before. When you finish, I'd enjoy reading your thoughts on the race.
