    I'll do my best, looks like the only option would be for me to try to pirate an earlier version of the game, which I'm both too lazy to do and kinda wary of since I recently got a nasty Trojan from a game torrent. Still, writing the recap is hard without screenies and such. I'll do my best, when motivation allows!

    Just started to read this thread. Not far into it but a lot of weird choices and even more ridiculous comments.

    First it's some little things, like making a Jotun Jarl your Prophet - why? The starting Herse commander fits the same role just as well. And would gain you another H caster, the H1 Jarl would be able to bless stuff by itself anyway, while the Herse can't.

    Then it's just the overall lack of focus on the build - what are you gonna do for an early war? You're not getting research in, you're not using your commander points fully at all infact. And you're not massing niefel giants either, but skinshifters which are kinda even more gold hungry. You can coast along and still end up in a good position with it, but doesn't seem like a build that's able to handle a ton of early pressure.

    But the Grimwulf comments about war with Atlantis are even more nonsensical. Atlantis has no trouble whatsoever countering Niefel Jarls. The cold-resistant deep ones with basalt spears are good enough for the job (the size-2 are generally better than the larger ones but both should work), let alone a possible awake pretender expander like an Octopus, who will eat Jarls for breakfast. If you deck them full of const-4 gear made with gems you'd first have to search for, might be another story, but then you're gonna find those water elementals and so on against you by that time.

    Entertaining in any case, reading on...

    I trust Grimwulf because he's more eloquent.

    Where is the end of the LP?!

    Does it mean that all stealthy troops can be cloud trapezed unless they hide in place if they weren't hiding at the beginning of the turn?
    If they go out of stealth in place, will the triggered battle happen before or after enemy movement?

    Come on sqeecoo we need your LP to continue! It is entertaining in its own right, plus it is an essential ingredient in the ritual to summon Grimwulf back from the beyond.

    No, he's wrong. If you sneak away, you won't be caught by trapeze or teleport. If you move without sneaking, then you will be.

    So only attacking from a friendly province breaks stealth?

    You can put it that way, yeah. Or any non-stealth move from a friendly province, doesn't have to be an attack move, could be moving between friendly provinces (with intent to defend) too.

    I don't know about their game quality otherwise but it's 4chan, so trannies and pot smokers should be guaranteed


    You could always start a kodex game

    What are the differences between the various Dominions discords though, in your view?

    They're all okish I guess, the problem is you can't even call people animefags because of the [​IMG] tranny communist Althaea :argh::argh:also active on the Steam forum :argh::argh:
    Lucid is pretty based, even has a more or less unmoderated politics channel, but then he mentioned smoking pot and how it ''makes you more socialiast bro'' or some shit, at which point I ragequit.

    Also the game itself made me butthurt because I had a game as Kailasa where my cap was coastal, opposite island Phaecia surrounded by their own small lake. Total strategic paralysis the moment they declare war, prisoners' dilemma diplomacy with the land neighbour I was at war with, where I ended up trading big losses vs them because they wanted land they couldn't themselves gain from me, but banked on me sitting in my cap vs Phaecia. Then pointed out accurately that I'd destroyed both him and myself out of pique.
    :negative:
    Nah, not going to reinstall after all.....

    Hmm, so Althaea used to be AlguloD but changed his nick too with the personality change? Hilarious.

    I don't doubt pot smoking makes bros more socialist, but is that a good thing or a bad thing?

    Not sure why you care so much about who runs a server, as opposed to how they run a server though

    Duh, ofc. True socialists have never been attempted. sqeecoo, come and give us closure, otherwise it will become another game of axis vs allies... Many such threads.

    I've played both /domg/ and Lucid discord games (and infested some forums like Dom5mods before their activity dropped to nil in most cases), and Lucid's servers is kind of carebearish but it works fine. Quite the variety of games even if some posters are quite.... peculiar, but I am too so it balances. Plus the majority of Dominions games nowadays is Discord-based, like it or not (I don't like it at all, I find Discord a terrible platform).

    /domg/ has slowly lost players during the years, but it's still a source for games with shitty diplo and weird situations. At least they survived the gachapocalypse on /vg/ better than others, and they still have some skilled people.

    Also, it's fucking good to be out GD.
