    I play Ulm. Sorry for that random Golem attack on your UW province - I thought I cancelled all attacks on Shinu after you agreed to make peace, but apparently I forgot about this one. Take it back, PD 0. I'll send you something in compensation.

    So embarassing.

    According to llamaserver, I revised my turn 36 times and counting. I just sent one.

    ...should I be worried?

    That's it for me. sqeecoo should come back 28th, so requesting 24h extension just in case and change of email for Ulm. Give him back this unholy mess of a game, Dayyālu.

    You liberals all look alike to me.

    It's not easy to distinguish between the varieties.

    Meanwhile in Mictlan(this was a bit sloppy, but heyyy....this game has grown stale):






    Show Spoiler
    Squad 1 reporting in sir, what do we do? Nobody is fighting. Slave Mitzoqelopctl was saying he overheard the priests talking about a "Great Cataclysm" ? The men and beasts grow impatient.

    [​IMG]

    You will do nothing soldiers, these are orders from the Great One himself. Apparently the old powers are content to wait this thing out, whatever it is. I've been around hundreds of years and killed hundreds of enemies and yet this bothers me. Still, I have my orders.

    [​IMG]

    Squad 2 reporting in, ummm....yeah but this is really boring. I fear the demons will at least fly off, or the toads will eat our farmers. We can't just sit here and wait to die when the world ends!

    [​IMG]

    Don't fear, cowards, we have a slew of great and powerful mages working on a solution. Surely one of them will end this threat.

    [​IMG]

    Some of these will do something, they have to. And if they don't do something then their seconds and thirds and fourths and....well, you get the idea.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Squad 3 reporting in sir. Couldn't help over hearing.....but mages? What have mages done to destroy our enemies and expand our kingdom. What about some real troops.

    [​IMG]

    Real troops? What about these? This is but a sample of what our mages have done.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Squad 4 reporting in, SIR. These wayward magic beings? They might flee as soon as the weak mages fall. We need tough bad ass dudes.

    [​IMG]


    Sigh....well what about our undead leaders. They are pretty cool, ok, if it comes to it they can handle a few "horrors".

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] *Cold lifeless stare*

    Squad 5 reporting in sir, can we just....

    [​IMG]

    Shut up.

    [​IMG]

    Ok, I am DONE for today. No more reports. *shuts door on the rest*

    Muttering to himself: "Not like it matters, nothing will happen, nothing ever does"

    Bummer. Oh well, a couple of flame spirits bound together will do, too.

    It's turn 65 (or something) ffs, can't we have more reasonable schedule than "it seems you are drunk and wasted, submit your turn in 12 hours"? I dunno, 72 hours seems like a good start. Let people have their fun.

    This game is gonna end with no big wars. I mean BIG. Hopefully that changes before the Cataclysm gives like...Atlantis the victory or some dumb shit.

    I managed to slip a turn in, but I'd really have preferred just to oversleep it :negative:

    Has anyone managed to use Time Stop yet? If so, is it cool? It sounds like it would be fun with some stuff, but maybe not powerful enough. How slow is slow? What does about 5 rounds mean? 4-6?

    I'm imagining a high astral mage doing Time Stop, then casting a few extra brutal battlefield enchantments before the other mages can cast resistances and such. Or a SC casting Time Stop and then attack rear/large and destroying dudes for 4+ rounds while everyone is frozen.

    I almost wish the amount of rounds were smaller. Can't really script back to back Time Stops. Now that would be fun.

    Hey, if you feel like doing some trials we could set up something... I always wanted to live the Time Stop ---> Master Enslave dream vs a big army. With Pythium communicants, which pre-cast communion slave and a single matrix I bet I could pull off something nasty! Round 1 Time stop with enough fatigue to cast anything and high FAWS paths for magic variety.

    To answer your question though, no, I haven't. I can't even remember if I have already reached Alt 8 or not :(

    Perhaps we can trial it in this game. We'll see how the cataclysm goes.
