    Welcome again, you dirty bastards

    [​IMG]

    So, while I wait for my porn download to finish (French 19th century literature is an aquired taste) I'm here to propose another stupid Dominions game. This time with an exceedingly weird if simple ruleset.

    There will be two teams, but NO DISCIPLES. Hear me out. The two teams will be asymmetric, and play with different rules. Age will be MA for Nations-related reasons.

    TEAM EVIL: The Twin Gods of Madness and Death. MA Ermor and MA Starspawns. They make a fixed team, they both win or die as one. They get a good position in the map and a good advantage in location, scaling with the number of opponents. Nonetheless, will require some bold moves to triumph. They share the same victory objective as the other team, 3 Throne points (this is subject to change). I repeat, they win as a team. No Disciples though, they are both at full power.

    TEAM FREE NATIONS: The Free Nations are normal Dominions nations, joined in a fragile alliance against Team Evil. They are allied in theory and will need to cooperate to survive, but for them victory isn't shared. Only ONE Free Nation is going to win with 3 Thrones, and how they are going to betray the others is what makes this interesting. Wait for them to be weakened by Team Evil? Reconquer the Thrones? Rush and pray for the best? Be the sucker and fight for others? Your call. I expect 4 to 6 players in this team, let's hope we get enough.

    This is the map I was thinking about, I'll do it with the Battle of Wesnoth map maker or something. Ermor connected with the "circle" by some passages, but not too many.

    [​IMG]

    This is inspired by a old SA game, and I hope I can get it going. Ask for details. Pray I manage to make the map.

    Get in, you fucks. It's not like we have a life or something

    This sounds great, I always love alliances without shared victory. If it doesn't start up by late August I'll be in and would enjoy playing the Astral Assholes.

    This is the stupidest idea since D15, I like it.

    Mess around with the map until August 22nd and I'm in. Since I still suck at breathing in Dom4 I'd say it's best to give me a free nation, else team evil will fail spectacularly :negative:

    I no longer play Dominions 4. Or games at all :)

    I hope you will all have fun and that having such fun will be good for you, both as an experience in itself and when all the consequences are accounted for. I enjoyed the games I had with you all, even the ones I lost.

    But I'm out. :)

    Better option than watching too close insanity or the rambling of madmen, but I'm not one to judge how a man chooses to waste time. Words are appreciated, pity, you were a devious bastard.

    Unless somebody else desperately wants to, and whenever this game gets rolling, I'd like to play one of the bad guys.

    Map is being built. I suck at map building.

    Isiloon sqeecoo KoolNoodles volunteering for team Evil, get your shit together

    @Dayyalu JagreenLern coldcrow Eadee 8chan people for Team Free Peoples

    We are pretty much full, I guess. Depending on who joins, we can maybe add another Team Evil, but it would be a tad too much. Want to keep this small and playable. And fast.

    God, gotta redo the map then. Too many players.

    I thought this meant Isiloon was uhh....not interested. Although, a hipster Ermor could be amazing.

    Don't worry, my guess is:

    1) i'll have to organize a bigger game with similar ruleset
    2) I'll do two games with 6 players each, better to keep this focused.

    Grif , comrade, I need confirmation. I need to know how to build the map.

    'cause, if we don't get the 8channers, we are

    Team Evil: Isiloon Ermor sqeecoo Starspawns

    KoolNoodles Dayyālu Eadee JagreenLern coldcrow for Team Free Peoples

    This would be golden. I can adapt the game to another extra player (8channer or Muty) . If we get three extra players I'd prefer to get two games going with five players each instead.

    Muty, yer willing?

    EDIT: Team Free Peoples have free picks. No weird rules, bar no UW nations for obvious reasons.

    Would you like to include the Magic Enhanced mod?

    PS: and Worthy Heroes, if you are at it.
