Re: The New Hinnom Nation

You're right, I would have no problem resisting the lure of cocaine. That makes Zamzummites... worse than cocaine?!

Re: The New Hinnom Nation

And of course Ashdod is even worse, balance-wise. But the Zamzummites are too cool for me to resist, like some kind of cocaine... when I try to play LA C'tis or Agartha or Helheim, all I can think is...

Re: Making SP harder

Good approach. You don't have to do this with spells though, the AI will take some advantage if you make them normal recruitable units. The AI has absolutely no concept of unit valuation--you could...

Re: Making SP harder

I have tried it, but it's really orthogonal. SemiRandom will give AIs some good thugs and/or pretenders to start with, but they still don't build effective units, equip more thugs, summon anything...

Re: Range in Assassinations/Death Matches

Well, to be fair, 1 PD will *usually* keep leaderless Maenads from taking a province. They do have berserk, and could potentially berserk to keep from routing and then kill the PD.

Re: Bless nation recommendation, please

You could try Helheim. Start out with an F4W9 bless or some such, and later on when you get the research transition to Svartalfs leading Ironskinned Behemoths. Is this for SP or MP?

Re: Heat scales

More importantly, they can Trample. Bottle of Living Water is great in cold provinces; in normal heat it's kind of meh.

Re: Misfortune 3 Death 3 scale

Heh. "On Death Ground, fight." Yes, that is kind of fun sometimes.

Obviously if you're anticipating a lot of plague events it becomes a lot more desirable to overtax.

Re: Misfortune 3 Death 3 scale

Nah, you get plenty of "neutral" events too like stealing a witch's gems. The biggest factor IMHO is game scale, since the event cap doesn't scale with empire size. Misfortune-3 is fine once you have...

Re: Vengeance of the Dead makes me angry!

I'm surprised you spent a year building up one unit. Dom3 is a wargame, individual units are always expendable and die in great whacking lots. VotD is a lot less nasty than Petrify, for example.

Re: Vengeance of the Dead makes me angry!

Try to arrange to give her The Ark, which will kill essentially unlimited amounts of undead and will thus allow you to survive multiple failed VotD MR checks.

My experience is the same--even though thugs like Dai Oni and Tomb Oracles rapidly develop afflictions like Mute and Feebleminded if they don't have helmets. It seems as if the hit location picked...

Re: Teleporting an immobile pretender.

If you're losing anyway you don't need to patrol, just tear down your home fort before the enemy gets there.

Re: How can you tell a unit's size?

Mostly these are good guidelines. However, I disagree about giants. Small giants like Avvites, Edomites, and those Midgard guys are size 3, like a 7' tall person. Most Jotun, Fomoria and Hinnom...

Re: Dom III sitll gets some parental attention

I generally prefer to kill everybody while they're sleeping and stuff their bodies in my icebox. But I guess a quiet laptop might work too. Whatever floats your boat I guess.

Re: Medallion of Vengeance

Not very. I think it's AoE 15 (about 4 squares in diameter), and damage is 10 AP or so, which is enough to damage human troops but not enough to kill more than one or two. Add some Flame Corpses to a...

Re: Countering flambeau's when using demon SCs?
