    Lol, I just sent your god in now.

    I resisted the urge to give it a ridiculous or offensive name.

    ok, game reinstalled, key found in email archives, mod installed. time to figure out how to join the game, which nation I am, and what a good pretender for that nation would be, and then how the mod screws it all up


    I'll be with you shortly gentlemen (and ladies, if there are any).

    I get an error message when I try to create a pretender: "Nagot gick fel! Bad #selectweapon command"

    any ideas?

    Make sure you have the latest patch for the base game. I got a similar message when I hadn't because the mod wasn't working with the old version.

    Think I've fixed it, and I've decided to go Caelum (having just watched the Hobbit last night)

    Yay!

    So, what are those crowns on the map? Peoples starting spots?

    Edit: Googling suggests that they are "Victory Points", which are disabled for us, but might be placed by the map-maker on important places. Someone also suggested that they work as temples for spreading dominion.

    Basically if you're not Ermor, you shouldn't bank on the Freespawn strategy.

    Another reason for prophetising your non-commander starting unit (not all nations start with scouts!) is that it lets you overtax and patrol on the first turn. The extra gold is absolutely invaluable for most nations.

    Yeah I guess if you dont have stealthy units as well it could be the only way to get a stealthy preacher. Have put in turns for me and Lanka.

    Good luck to all! Hope nobodies planning to rush their neighbours on turn 7 with some kind of forgotten megabeast.

    Has anyone played dwarf fortress? True source of all terrifying megabeasts, with descriptions like 'Its skin is rock. Beware its poisonous blood!'

    Turn one is such a tease. Wonder who the neighbours are?

    I think I enjoy reading about dwarf fortress almost as much as actually playing it. The Masterwork mod is pretty good as well.

    Curses. Apparently you aren't allowed to submit 2 peoples turns with 1 cd key/copy of dominions, and the orders I submitted for Lanka were not executed. I have used a laptop using gsus key to do his turn this time so hopefully it will work this time!

    Just Ctis and Caelum left for this turn now I think.

    I feel somewhat surronded by heavy cavalry. Also does arco have really high dominion or does it just look like that cause its the first turn?

    Not super high, but strongly suggests he has an awake pretender (as pretenders have the highest dominion spread). I already took my turn so I can't check, but if he also declared a prophet that would affect dom spread this turn as well. I would imagine it's both of those things and he rolled well.
