    DECLINE 23: TOXIC NATIONGEN EDITION

    Somewhere, in another universe... the gods have created a grand tournament, the winner gets to join the pantheon of gods... but to win they must lead their nation of miscreants and mutants to defeat the others.

    We have bear-riding-crocodiles, men who can fly - but choose to ride dwarves instead, turtle people with dog heads, giant gorillas who ride lizards and MORE!!!

    STEP right up STEP RIGHT UP... as we gather our contestants, the gods cheer and hurl magic gems at their favorite competitor - who WILL WIN?!


    [​IMG]
    D0ominions NationGen DUMPSTER DIVE !!!


    incoherent gurgling and babbling noises - oh look, a sacred cigarette.


    Who's up for nation-gen.

    i'll generate 3 nations per player who signs up...

    once we have 10+ players I'll generate....

    Sure, I'm in. Early era to blunt the edge of blood somewhat imo.

    And I was going to make the thread if I resurrected soon enough. Thanks Isiloon . Would have preferred a Warhams game, but whatever.

    Here's the nations mod boys.

    https://drive.google.com/open?id=1iFlMR0jj5EAFVVop90yns3H7WFx9dhiL

    settings.

    [​IMG]

    We will do the usual - try couple nations ... then we give people numbers and RNG to determine order of picks.


    Non of the mods have water nations, but some have amphibious.. some nations are obviously broken weak - like one with ambidextrous sacreds... bot only 1 spear

    lots of abysians.. not all sacreds are equal lol.. magic paths are quite diverse, lots of blood + whatever you want so anyone can easily get blood econ if they wanted

    So since this is my first time, I'm just going to ask a couple of stupid questions:

    1) We're allowed to pick any of these nations, right? Just gotta pick in order of RNG.
    2) What's the AI setting for this? :M

    It opens up in mod inspector just fine. Let's see..

    Holy fuck, this is metal! Abysian Winged Demon infantry wielding plate armor. Cavalry riding motherfucking fossilized giants. And that is from 30 seconds browsing the first nation.

    EDIT: Who gets first pick? Because fuck me I want Zris, no other nation can compare to this shit. The Inferior Oathbinders. The high priests with no religious authority. Guys I think I'm in love. :lol:

    EDIT AGAIN: That said Duskalnapia looks to be the strongest by far. Limited paths, but gets access to the Spenta lines of summons (and can cast them natively, so better than caelum) which gives them most everything but death and blood. Also has the super-strong Agarthan summons, and Onis for good measure. Mammoths for expanding. Ice Armor and native cold resist, so can tank all the temp scales in a game with plenty abysians and agarthans. Flying Air/Astral communions with native storm caster; lightning spam for days. But the best part? Cap only unit isn't sacred but pretty much comes with built in major bless anyhow, and everything important flies in storms with native access to the storm global.

    Nationgen nations are almost always "broken as fuck". Nothing will ever beat the mechanical midgets of the first Wasteland game. Also NationGen loves blood for some inane reason.

    Unstoppable flying mechanical midgets.

    Fuuck.

    I vote for the usual: player list, RNG, pick.

    will do.

    Zris looks quite strong, but there's other nations who are pretty good as well. I picked like 10 nations I thought were respectable - all the nations get decent national spells

    What, everyone gets access to all national spells now?

    I think I like Comhich.

    That sounds hilarious. Please, this time post pictures of the most whatefuquey things, for us ignorant (me) who never played a nationgen game.

    You should just play Matalarata - you know you want to...

    Guys if you can't load the DM - just make it with identical settings...

    everything vanilla except the settings shown - you should get same result

    Nope. I won't play any modded game untill the grand total of my Dominions experience is in the single digit. Decline 21 is my seventh mp game, as soon as I have 10 or so under my belt I'll give it a try.

    I'm also terribly busy, really! Joining a game without being able to give it the full attention it deserves is an offense towards all the other players, in my humble opinion.

    I'm 100% sure someone will pick this, so try a few nations because you may not get your first pick depending on RNG



    Ah yes, the ol' electric panther knights AYE

    [​IMG]


    They also get non-sacred bear and spider knights... and a wyvern riding spy :D
