    So say a relic requires 10 souls, but you sent 10 souls and 3 hellfire, that's better than 12 souls. or 10 souls and 2 darkness. But a bid of 10 souls, 1 darkness 2 icor and 1 hellfire would win.

    Add to this infernal negotiations ritual serves as a multiplier to all resources, probably based on the ritual roll. (like 1*(0.01*roll+modifier)) but equation is all guesswork.
    According to the manual souls equals to two points in outbidding, while the other resources contribute just one point.
    So in your first example, 12 souls is actually better than 10 souls and 3 hellfire.
    I just wasn't sure about if all the resources counted or just the specifics to the item.

    I missed that, good catch, so souls are super impotent, huh?

    Dr Von Evil has the most comfortable throne ever. Still warm too. But the throne room lacked decoration so I put up some angel heads, along side Von Evil head, and I used his entrails as a rug. To help you remember him as I do I sent you each a piece of him by courier.

    Well, being that this is almost over I want to thank you for a great first game. It was quite quiet, perfect for me to get used to the nuances of the game.
    You're all lovely deceiving bastards.

    You figure it was quiet eh? Well, yes it has heated up more with the arrival of the angels. Personally I was expecting a longer game so I likely took my time too much.

    Well, I didn't die -yet- and didn't fight much, so it was kinda quiet for me.

    Much with SI its 'go hard or go home' you'll not win games without pushing, and if you push you get pushed back. That or get the puzzle cube and excommunicate yourself and puzzle cube kill everyone.

    I'll even EAT them burglars, if you let them near me. Now flip the newspaper to the next page, I am done reading lonely heart ads.

    Lol it's not that good and I've meant to play it a few times/been tempted to trade it in but the later the game gets the smarter it seems to wait and then just play it at the last minute :-) Don't think I've seen it come up in any of my previous games!
