    It looks like the trends are moving exactly as you predicted. So shall we call it dead? I think the crazy subbing killed it for me. PANGEA STARTED IT!

    I'll create a nice clean new game after the summer craziness to take some mod pressure off ever-suffering Dayyalu, and it'll have no circle-subbing and mass extensions. No more! A good game died because of it!

    Why not go the other way and have a game that is all about circle-subbing? Every year, each player moves over to the nation of the player next to him in the list.

    And this one wasn't too good, that's what Switzerlanka says, anyway.

    I now can spoiler free this: Isiloon had the Ovens and the biggest equipment factory I've ever saw. It was literally a place where you could get thug equipment for nothing, we're talking all paths all with hammers.

    A thing of wonder.

    2 water gem frost brands :D... spamming anti-thug bows for my centaur priests.

    Had Eternal Pyre, Mother Oak, Gift of Health - at least one, maybe two +1 all gem provinces, blood slaves around 100ish per turn without too much disruption.. 40 nature per turn and whatever Dayyalu took

    Also Dayyālu I wasn't centralized because I was concerned about Helheim deep strikes with stealthers, and also protecting flanks from backstabs.

    You would have noticed that despite having a decentralized overall position, in a few places I had an obvious attack force.

    You have to take into account the diplomacy - I had good relations with everyone except Helheim, Berytos(who cares soz) and Machaka, who were actively all involved in some manner of conflict either through direct war or attrition... secret sanctions ... we had a group chat with everyone in it plotting away and coordinating diplomacy. Though I would have expected at least one to be an information leaker, if there was a leaker there was no obvious impact on the game.

    We agreed to refuse trading with the 3 rogue nations. Mictlan and I allied through mutual interests and facilitative geography, we incentivized Rlyeh to join us and encouraged him to do mind hunts, but we would blame it on Marverni who was at war with Helheim... to make Marverni look stronger and also use Rlyeh's resources to attack the player we all feared most.

    What else... we inter-traded a lot, gave some items to Marverni...or at least talked about it. I drew lots of maps coordinating armies and dividing territory :P
