    I have returned.

    To atone for my sudden vanishing, I will be hosting a new game.

    The Rule of Thirds is in effect. There should be 3x3 = 9 players. Each player gets three random nations and three random pretenders from each nation to choose from. Each player starts with three provinces. There are three level one, three level two and three level three thrones. Is there something else that can be in threes?

    Age: Early Age
    Map: roaring cave rhinos
    Turns: 33h
    Mods: worthy heroes 5.5, better arena
    Thrones: 3xlvl 1, 3xlvl2, 3xlvl3, 12 points to win

    Especially LA Ulm, they're a bunch of suckers.

    However, I haven't played EA yet so I'm in, out of pure curiosity.

    Grimwulf as the Nameless One made me laugh for a while.

    Thesheeep would make for a fine Fall-From-Grace though!

    Well, I hope to bury Dec10 soonish, Wasteland 2 requires little effort by design and Dec13 can go on autopilot for all I care, so I'm in.

    To tag some other people:

    Sounds gay. I like it. But I need some time to think I am already in a few games.

    Random nations are fun :) Everything can be made to work with luck and cunning! But being locked in a stupid pretender takes away some of the joy for me. I'd vote self-made pretenders, three random nations! Making the pretender is great fun and an important skill.

    Well, not to me, I only enjoy a few. A generic human nation X with next to no national summons and bland sacreds, the "build, uh, infantry, cavalry and archers, yeah" kind, is instant erection killer.

    But isn't the map a bit too big for 9 players?
