    What: Dominions 5: Warriors of the Faith
    https://store.steampowered.com/app/722060/Dominions_5__Warriors_of_the_Faith/

    Where: Preferably Discord where I can setup a game and moderate it, but failing that good ol' Llamaserver.

    http://llamaserver.net/
    declinethirtysomething: https://discord.gg/5CVcgjzT

    Who: Old people, new people, the foolhardy.

    Looking for about 8-12. Whatever is left can be populated by random people.

    Game will be Early Age, because Early Age is best age. Free For All. Pick a nation you aren't strong with, preferably. We all know about the Mictlan murder blesses of the world. First come first served.

    Map TBD, but I'll probably just make one with MapNuke once nations are picked(so yes, you can pick a water nation and be a little bastard who hides all game). https://nuke-makes-games.itch.io/mapnuke


    Pretenders:
    Rus - RCK79
    Helheim - Infinitum
    Yomi - Coldcrow(Darkmoon)
    Therodos - sqeecoo
    Ubar - KoolNoodles
    Pangaea - Berekan
    Agartha - Johannes(GayDad)

    Abysia - K i l l j o y

    Out.

    The setup and some of the people inside are already non-kosher for the lazy me.

    Have fun, I'll wait for KN's Wasteland game instead.

    That chilling, debilitating dread when I see an email from Llamaserver popping up in my mailbox, surrounded in the aura of broken dreams and crushed hopes? Weaponizing boredom only gets me this far.

    Do you scrubs know how to Discord, also? If not check out the server link above and make a profile and see how it feels. It is much preferable from both an admin point of view and for chit chats about Diplomacy in-game. And very easy to get random other people to populate a game.

    I'll try Therodos, since KoolNoodles suggested a camp underwater plan and Dayyalu is not playing with his EA Atlantis :)

    Ubar, Therodos and Yomi? Well I for one do not feel obliged to pick a spirit sight/magic weapons bless, no siree. It's a constructive, upstanding scale focused build for me!

    I'll try Niefelheim then. I need to try all the Heim nations after all.

    I will try Xibalba on second thoughts, as I want to try some not-cold nation :)

    Cool. We are fast approaching the minimum amount for a decent game.

    btw, I did play a few blitzes, and they all ended up in a hellbless contest. Did you make something specific to make 2 player games work (like random pretenders, or a random subset of nations to choose from with a round of bidding?).

    Just depends on the matchup, map and settings (esp research speed) what builds work best. Obviously you'll always want a strong earlygame in some form, but even if it's a heavy bless against heavy bless there's still the need to play and use it well.

    Of course there's always the chance that one side just rolls over the other at first encounter (be it because one player played badly, or got countered by the opposing build, or just by luck) , which is boring, but that can happen regardless of the builds used.

    I'm ok starting with 8 players (which we are with Malakal?). Bigger games tend to stall out hard.
