how many clams did you have Aku? and what was your monthly income Panther (and what was your upkeep?)

This was my first game, and I'm just curious to know some benchmarks.

Well I had I think almost 30 clams so far and making 2 a turn. My income was like a 1000 with 500 upkeep. My gem income was around 15 of each gem type + around 100 blood a turn. Remember my income is lowered a lot because my blood provinces I have at 0% tax to keep the unrest at 0. Blood nations get killed on their income because of that. So Man or Pythium would be the typical income if they care to reveal it. I also was getting gold from alchemizing fire and earth gems with the alchemist stone. I had too much fire gems with that eternal pyre running so long. I mainly used my gold to buy blood hunters and I started buying assassins, build up pd, or buy stuff from other players.

hm i had about 25 clams and 15 fiever fetishes too .
was forging 3 clams + 4 fetishes / turn now

would have been soon more when i get more spectres

too bad that the game ended so sudden
my "secret" growing could have been very interesting
i think everybody saw me just as a minor power who barely won against poor machaka but was no danger at all

Stats from the time-warped turn (61):

Monthly income - 1934
Upkeep - 730
Gem income, including 14 clams and 9 fetishes - 88
Blood slaves - about 15-20 on average
Provinces - 41
Mages - 77 of which all but 3 sages were also priests
Other commanders - 22
Hydras - 31 and recruiting 2 per turn

No SCs, though. I was going hydra power instead.

Also research levels as follows:
9-6-7-8-9-7-4
with 435 per turn.
I also had built about 12 of the unique artifacts, maybe more.

And, with 74 priests and growing, I was not overly worried about Boron's 'secret growing'. I think that my endless banishments would rip through about anything he could muster. Although, being on opposite sides of the world, we would not have crashed until much, much later.

wow.. that's pretty cool for turn 60

you don't even want to know what I had! LOL

maybe 400 income and 390 upkeep most of the time.. no real gem income to speak of other then what i started with (i lost all the good provinces) and only about 20 mages. I had pretty decent research, but it was useless since I didn't have the gems or the paths/levels to cast anything impressive.

Shameless bump to dust of an old forgotten thread.
