    Dear bros and bras, not since the ancient and infamous Decline 11 has there been a nice, clean free-for-all game here on the Codex. Although my game-creation skills are pitiful next to raw's and Dreaad's awesomeness, with raw's blessing I have taken upon myself the honor and duty of creating an oasis of respite from the disciple-game abominations that have been manifesting lately. All who so desire are welcome to join me in a new game of Dominions 4. Enter, and be merry!

    Anyway, we'll be playing MA so that someone can try the new Ys. A nice, leisurely pace of 48h per turn with infinite extension, so don't worry if you are kinda strapped for time - we are in no hurry. Game start will probably be a month from now anyway.

    Nation picks are first-come first-serve, so pick them while they are hot! Any player can, by mutual consent, challenge another player's nation pick, with the challenge being anything from a simple dice roll to something more creative like a Red Alert duel.

    Standard research, no story events, non-binding diplo and binding trades, etc. Map and thrones will be decided based on the number of players that apply. Everyone is free to join, of course.


    Game name: Decline13

    Age: MA
    Map: Shaluda Codex Edition
    Turns: Every 48 hrs
    Mods: Worthy Heroes 1.23
    Thrones: 3x3, 6x2, 9x1, total 30, 18 to win.

    Each turn extended a maximum of 24 hours upon request (no extensions without request). If someone is legitimately away from the computer for a few days, we can consider a longer extension request.
    Please submit at least the first year's turns without waiting for the end of the timer.

    Seriously? Pelagia and Oceania are first picks? This is gonna be great :) Berekän, you are of course free to change your picks if you like. If not we'll just have to find a map with a lot of water, since I'm sure someone will pick Ys. I may even pick R'lyeh just for completeness sake :)

    In theory, yes. In practice, why would you want to?

    EDIT: (of course, pick what you like)

    I'll be a man and take what has been given to me. I probably wouldn't play Pelagia in any other situation so at least I'll get to play them one time.

    Its ok in MA and it seems like you will have two caps to work with - Pelagia in MA is ruler of UW.

    Coastal mages are usable, pearl cultivation is a niche but nice option and having a safe aUW power base helps you plan long term.

    I'm in!
    And I'll... play stuff... probably a nation...
    Since every nation I tested so far is already picked I'll go roll a die.

    Okay, I pick Mictlan.

    An about that die...
    *rolls die*

    Its a four.

    I just said I'd roll a die... not that I'd pick a nation by consulting the result of the roll... get over it!

    Now lets find out what Mictlan is about...

    Okay, I've randomly rolled Ys, but if someone else wants to try them, I can go with my second random option of Atlantis.

    Seems we need a map with at least 3 or 4 UW provinces.

    I'm tempted to grab R'lyeh to round out the UW picks, but in the interest of sanity and map selection I think I'll go with C'tis!

    Pre-generated random maps can look alright if you don't use the default settings:

    (Of course they also need some fixes like nostarts and wonky connections)
