    So, how many comrades up for this one?

    I still need to think about Nation, but even if we are 4-5 we can go through.

    Would prefer at least 4. Any more than that is gravy in my book, since the long hiatus on this forum.

    As for nation, you know I'm going Mictlan!

    Kidding. I will try some mediocre never played nation.

    I can't summon enough autism to play it. Yet. Maybe some day.

    How many turns and IRL days an avarege Codexian Dominions game takes?

    60-80 turns, couple of months, if it finishes. Unless, rarely, somebody steamrolls the early game and everybody resigns.

    Alright, seems we at least have enough to put the game on llama. I'll do so. First come first serve Pretender submissions. I'll update OP with the map link etc.

    Edit: Game is up on llamaserver, OP updated. Any questions ask away.

    Maybe we should change the throne spread? Whoever starts close to the 3-pointer would easilty be able to win off 3/9 thrones in total. What about 9 2-pointers, 4-5 to win?

    I'd be ok with eliminating the three pointer, though I do like the idea of fighting over such a large point swing.

    I like it too. Maybe up the victory requirement to 8? We don't have that many players, shouldn't take TOO long.

    Mekone is me.

    Minor events at least maybe? Bit easier AIs? (just in case)

    Famous last words. :lol:

    I'll bump up the victory requirement to 7.

    Usually people only go AI when they are dead. Mighty doesn't give them huge bonuses like Master/Impossible, but they don't fold over easily like Normal/Difficult. Should be fine.

    4th of July claims Mekone. Ballsy.

    After testing, I don't like how Machaka plays. Another round of the randomizer!

    SAUROMATIA

    Uh. I hoped to get something I didn't already play. But wait, last time was in Dom4! Improvement!

    Allright then, on to the most important decision of the game. Lanka have several viable paths for pretender choices; there's the obvious Hindu mythology angle, but also camp exoticism (eg Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom) and even shades of Kipling what with the Indian subcontinent menagerie summons.

    j/k who am I kidding. No contest.

    I seriously wanted the Titan of the Crossroads.

    Because TRINITY

    AND ITS A TITAN

    OF THE CROSSROADS

    But 340 pts was impossible to build. Suffering is eternal.

    Trinity is kinda cool as an idea, but their magic is REALLY weak when split. Any of the astral chassis you have to either keep them together at S5/S6 or go S9/10 or something crazy like that. Even then when they are split each one is around S3 I think? :o

    The only trinity I see being useful is the tiny crone one for a huge rainbow bless - such a pretender will basically only search or forge anyway so having three forgers is a bit of a bonus, and it's the cheapest chassis for that kind of bless (cheaper than the Frost Father even).

    True that. One would miss out on some of the non D/W crosspaths though. Do pretender gods get afflictions from old age? Getting it diseased seems like a drag for non-healer nations.

    Yeah, I'd want a careful look at how the crosspaths are distributed. Disease, well, shit happens. Dominions: everything dies, nothing is safe.

    Quick question guys: are we waiting for September 9 to start or do you want to start earlier? I'm mulling over various nations and pretenders cause I'm assuming we're waiting but can submit pretty much immediately if you want to start.

    I believe we are going to wait until the 9th.
