    The frontline of this war is not in the dungeon, but rather inside the mind.

    It is time to settle the old score, to resolve this ancient rivalry. You and me, Lizzurd. MA Disciples game, two teams, four players each. Whoever wins this game will mock and humiliate the other one til the end of times.

    MEN! Pick a side and join our struggle, for we need more chaff and obedient henchmen! Sign up in this pbem if you are tired of raw and his menopauses. This war will be quick, brutal and intense.

    Lizzurd leads Team 1. Join him if you hate me for some reason.

    Grimwulf leads Team 2. If you want to win, this is your only option.

    So, it is time to end this old confrontation and choose the true Dominions Autist!

    I also want to note that i respect private rights and i am sure that each player should do his turn himself and in this he requires no more than the strong party line and some little advices. While it is well known that Grimwulf abuses his minions private rights, kicks dogs and sometimes even does the turns of his subordinates himself! If you sign for Lizzurd you sign for Liberty! If you sign for Grimwulf you sign for the most fun awful form of communism - Grimwulfnism!

    This is garbage. I simply care about my people, and worry about their well-being. While Lizzurd doesn't give a flying fuck. In Team 1 you will be alone and miserable. In Team 2, glorious KOMMARADERY and TEAM SPIRIT awaits!

    Scientific facts - in the native Grimwulf's language there are 32 words for "betray", 39 for "murder", 51 for "violence", only 5 for "sharing", 1 for "cooperation" and zero for "love". Think again if you really want to enjoy his TEAM SPIRIT.

    Inspiring song to sign for lizzards team:

    This game has my blessing as the OFFICAL^TM Season 8 game. You may adapt the topic Grimwulf. I'd also really like to join this, but my menopausal troubles will prolong the start until late August the earliest.

    Grimwulf, i think it may have sense to extend team sizes to 5x5 or even 6x6. At this rate they are going to get full in a few hours.

    Oh, i forget about the maximum size of private rooms. So we can extend it only up to 5x5.

    He may look like one, but exactly he is our old friend from the times when Grimwulf tried to gather TEH BIG GAME.

    I cant recommend anybody to join Grimwulf's team because he is really like weird checks for membership. Long examination in skype for turing test, anal probes, hostages from the parents, etc

    I'm lured in by the promises of quick, brutal and intense and will choose Team Grimwulf because recommendations from his not-alt.

    Let's see how soon I will regret this.

    You mean VARANGIAN, right? Don't be so cryptic next time.

    Strangely enough, I can't. There is no "edit" option in my op-post. Maybe I should contact moderators or sumth.

    I fear it might drag and become another RAW pbem. Let's see how it goes.

    HEY, nobody ever complained about my supreme leadership skillz! Your nick looks familiar, tho. I bet I know your ass.

    You've made the right KEY CHOICE for a change.

    I tagged you, man. It's some evil 'Dexian magic - when there are too many tags in one post, some of them don't receive alerts.

    Where is your famous charisma now, Lizzurd? Two Men have joined me already! Your situation is hopeless.

    Good luck to both of you. Not joining for obvious reasons (Grimwulf is a Great&Good player-team mate and what else, but even good things must be taken with taste and measure, and Lizzurd is simply insane, plus four ongoing games) but I'll love to see the end of your psychotic little feud.

    I'd suggest to change the rules for bans/picks, they are truly limiting. Fun for a go or two, but they're not very optimal for all Dominions games. Just my derpy opinion, though.

    May the Best Slav win!

    From my experience with Decline 5 the current draft system is pretty good. I remember that in that game all 5 picks of both teams were fine enough to participate in warfare. And to my opinion there are almost no bad nations in MA, Shinuyama just requires non typical playstyle. Of cause i don't count UW nations, they are shit in each era.

    It's ok. But if you could join, you would do it on my side, right? I want Lizzurd to know it.

    On your side, yes :D I have huge respect for Lizzurd after his impressive play in Decline 2 but you're the one that got me into Dom4 with your LP and taught me the ropes in the game, so I'd certainly be on your side.

    Also, the image in the OP is great :D
