    For EA C'tis you definitely want H3 - your guys are coldblooded and you never want them to be in the cold, and at H3 you don't get cold even in winter. You probably don't need luck 3 and order 3, although this kind of pure scales build is not a completely terrible choice. C'tis would actually like a bit of nature and astral magic on the pretender, since it can search those paths with the shamans but can't get them very high (barring the late and expensive couatl summon). Other magic paths (like fire) that you lack are also nice for diversity, but scales are probably the priority, or an awake expander if you prefer that. For the bless components, arcane finesse and reinvigoration is ok on your shaman communions, and recuperation is neat for late in the game when you can use it to heal your tartarians (or mindhunters, but those are less likely).

    Otherwise, use the elite slave warriors, they are amazing troops - and go for enchantment 5 for your reborn and sauromancers to spam skeletons and foul vapors :) Them's the basics.

    i'm getting an error from llamaserver that the .2h i sent isn't valid, did anyone else encounter this? The game itself reads the savefile just fine so not sure what's up.

    Yeah I started the game already because there wasn't much activity in terms of recruitment.

    I'll postpone hosting for 24h to help give time to fix the issues. Are you sure you have DE 1.41 installed? I would check with that

    I'm getting the same issue for another game as well, might be a llamaserver thing.

    Eh, I'll do it. I'm rolling a 6-player generic EA map with cartographic revision to go with it, just gimme a sec to fail miserably.

    EDIT: And done. Early era, Dominions Enhanced 1.41, no looking at other players score graphs, normal indie strenght and game settings (ai level difficult). ~15 land provinces per player. Turn 100 apocalypse because fuck me if this carries on into 2020. 2 level 1 thrones per player, 12 in total, 7 to win. I entered a master password (as well as an admin one), no idea what that does. Was that a blunder?

    Clicking the map link on llama leads to this forum topic, so no, I don't have the map :)
