I just ran a quick test game on llamaserver and it works a treat. Put the map file in your map folder. Note this is a wraparound map.
Right, didn't mention it apparently but I've sent my C'tis.
My Arco pretender is in!
Gsu is in Canada at the moment, think he wont be around to submit for a few days unfortunatly. Have asked if I can send in a pretender for him in case thats possible.
If anyone fancies trying to get a short/small game going today I would be up for it. I even think i have a laptop somewhere set up to host it so no need for email hassle. Played a few games that we got bored with (only 2 people) with Gsu and hes normally in Korea.
Id be up for a 24/48hrhr quickhost system or something maybe for the first few turns for this game as well just to get things moving at the start?
The llamserver sends out turns as soon as they are in so the players are the limiting factors. With nine its going to take time for that to happne but hopefully it will move along at reasonable speed
My pretender is in.
Pretender in as Kailisa, going to spam an clam
Not in CBM you're not.
I can still build one!
Just waiting for the last two now!! Time to work out a strategy!
A quick question to which I haven't really received a good answer even after trying to dig for info: what kind of leader should I prophetize? What kinds of qualities should I be looking for?
Quite a few people recommend just Prophetising your starting army commander, it gives them priest levels which allows them to cast spells like Sermon of Faith to increase soldier morale, which can be useful when killing all the indies or if you're doing a bless strategy you can use them to cast bless. Some people prophetise their scouts because it's an easy way to spread dominion. I'm not sure so much about later/mid-game, but I'd imagine prophetising is more important in strong bless strategies than elsewhere.
Am I in this game? I didn't manage to keep up with the forums over new year (sorry)
You are. So check the first post for a unused nation and get a pretender submitted.
Yep we have a place reserved for you... you need the CBM mod and the Rustynails map. Links in the first post.Design your pretender and send it to Llamaserver (faq also linked first post).
We're just waiting for you and Gsu to send in pretenders then we can meander off!!
ok, I'll get to it!
Prophets can cast Divine Bless which is a army wide bless useful for bless strategies. They can also smite which is a pretty effective single target attack spell.
IF you have access to level 3 holy priest and prophitise one of them they go up to Holy 4 which is rare and gives them access to more spells.
It's kinda situational of what you intend to use him for :-)
Yeah fanaticism is the lvl 4 one. Basically sermon of courage/morale boost for all your units which is good. Not sure about the death thing though, I think that you need a unit that can reanimate already/has unholy bless? I know if you have a death priest prophet you get some different spells.
Good news is I have got hold of gsu and hes going to tell me what he wants so I can make a pretender for him and let me play his first couple of turns. Hopefully this is ok with everyone, I have told him to post here and introduce himself so that you know im not crazy...
Hey everyone, do you still need an extra player. Can i play Lanka?
