    Welcome, bunch of heretics and assorted sexual deviants. My Jewish Masters compel me to start new shitty gimmicky games for his amusement between drug deals and plans of world domination.

    DECLINE 15: UNDERWATER FRIENDS

    [​IMG]

    Between the time when the oceans begat Atlantis, and the rise of the sons of Void, there was an age undreamed of. And unto this, Pretenders appeared, destined to wear the jeweled crown of the Pantokrator upon a troubled brow. It is I, their chronicler, who alone can tell thee of their saga. Let me tell you of the days of high microing!


    Exactly as it sounds. We'll find a good UW map (there should be one around, I'll need to check Dom3mods or the Desura archives, I swear I saw one) or get a random generated one that I'll fix. We won't need many players.


    Divine Rules:

    - Only UW or UW focused nations. I am debating between myself if MA Xibalba counts as UW or not. In any case, the bats won't have space for aboveland expansion.

    - Thrones will be aboveland. On small isles. Aboveland isles will be max 2-3 provinces or even less. I'll try to get a good ration of Thrones, but that can be debated.

    - Standard game setting. Standard research, gemsites. Standard indie strength, UW indies are already as good as they go.

    First of all, VOTE!

    EA UW: Atlantis, Starspawns, Pelagia, Oceania, Therodos (hard mode)

    MA UW: Atlantis, Starspawns, Pelagia, Oceania, Ys, Xibalba (????)

    LA UW: Atlantis, Starspawns, Mictlan, Jomon

    Methinks MA is the best pick. Nations will be randomly assigned (ladder or complete random? We can discuss that also!).

    If you consider MA Xib, you might as well add Agartha (or Ermor).

    This is going to be so weird I can't miss it.

    I can't type R'lyeh without checking. I call 'em Starspawns.

    I know. I can't simply type them without checking. I can't even pronounce Lovecraftian stuff in RL.

    EA Agartha or MA Agartha could be in, Ermor is out. It won't simply be fun to play Ermor UW, trust me.

    Dreaad

    You freakin' Slavic rape victim, are you in?

    Feel free to ping other randoms. We'll need between 5 and 7 players max.

    Desura seems to be dead once again, so I can't find the thread, but the map in this video was quite water-heavy, and I should have it somewhere. Islands are larger than three provinces though.
    Can I be Muty's (possible) substitute? :cool: It would be like a team game, but with only one nation.

    I messed around with the map editor lately. So if we can't find something suitable I can try to create something cool and wet.

    ofc I'm in - I'm the one who demanded this game take place! What you think I will spam you with messages just so I can read a few half ass battle reports?

    However I was thinking we could do random nations, does anyone know if there's a way to make random nations UW.... or if it ever generates nations that are UW.... if this is the case i might use my greater autism invocation to find 10-12 randomly generated UW nations.... another hack we can do is move the nations from EA and LA to MA....

    I just kinda feel like 6 players might not be enough... ?

    If we do stick with random nations, hat-draws is the fairest method of assigning nations, as long as I get something way more overpowered than Dayyālu :smug:

    On a serious note, thanks Dayyālu for putting in the effort to creating another sweet game, you're the real MVP :salute:

    Show Spoiler
    I hope the map you pick is wet like these two bitches

    Well, I think moving LA and EA nations to MA would be awesome. I'd really like to pick a nation, but I will deal with random nations if necessary.

    We're kinda like on 7 or 8 players by now

    On the positive I got sick so I can plan about this game in my bed barfing blood instead of trucking around

    That or playing Valkyria Chronicles (don't judge, it's a cool TB game with cancer theme)

    Getting a ALL-UW mod can be done, I guess, as a NationGen thing.

    EDIT

    They look distressingly young for my tastes

    Nation gen would be ideal, but if infeasible we should stick to la + ea merged into ma, that way we dont get op magic sites and it still has that wasteland feeel - with weird shit like everyone spams elementals.

    but we would get a guaranteed number of factions and as restricted in number of players if we merge the ages- lets be honest everyone wants to try the buffed EA squid people

    So, it's not possible to create UW Nationgen nations, or I'm too far gone to do it

    If someone wants to do a "ALL-UW nations mod", go wild, I'm trying but I can't be bothered to learn

    I simply can't

    I'm glad, Nationgen can create pretty OP nations. The vanilla ones are quite nice! I'm fine with any era, but come on, Aboleths? Who can say no to aboleths?

    Should be like 20-30 lines for the whole mod.

    Dont get your hopes up sqeecoo About the aboleths. You lack the mental capacity to fully utilize the power of the star spawns and besides they would prefer to have a guy with a cthulhu tattoo like myself as their pantokrator.
