Yeah, I just noticed the same thing.

Given Dr. P and I both staled, unless someone else is doing something really nasty to me (and I haven't looked), I'm ok taking the stale if he is, but this is really getting silly.

Chris could say if there's any compelling reason for me to not want a stale so I don't have to look at the turn.

Children of Crom would be my vote for the name. It'd be a good match for Supplicants of Set.

I would also vote (although unless this starts in like 6 months I wouldn't be able to play) for option 1 on the lineup. A lineup with Ashdod plus 3 weak nations is better than one with 1 UW nation and wacky map contortions to fit it in.

I also think the mercenary idea is really cool, and I would love to play that if I thought there was a prayer of schedules working out.

I don't really think we can let this stale stand. The 3 stales are Sauromatia (yeah!), Niefelheim (boo!) and Caelum (double boo!).

I haven't looked at the turn, but it's 10 vs 4, and 2 of the 4 staleing vs. the scariest of the 10? It could be worse for us, but really...

I'm for a rollback. Haven't looked at my turn either but I know it's not going to be good. Might be not much better if I play but I could at least do the messages... Will go with the stale if the majority is against that.
I'm sorry for squeezing out the deadline to the max the last turns but it's simply like that - when I have important stuff to do and time to do the dominions turn (I always check before going to sleep but I often can't check during the day) the next day I'll do the other stuff first. Quite simply I need a reliable deadline. Doing a 5-min the most important stuff turn is no option in this game situation as I then don't have a deadline to do the real turn.
I personally don't mind too much but it's bad for my team, so the next stale that happens whether that's caused by me or the timer I'll have to quit.

OK game is rolled back. Ignore that last turn file and use the one from before that.

Or do I need to resend the turns from before that one just to be sure?

Is everyone resubmitting a new turn, or just those of us who staled?

Just getting in. Hmm, you know I would have been happy without the rollback, but apparently Gandalf says he did it. Hope no one I attacked looked at the turn, I for one, prefer not to waste my time having to redo my orders. I like to get it done, get my turn in, get on with other things. I can't speak any more about the server, everyone already knows that waiting till the last moment can be problematic. Generally, only allow those people who staled need to resubmit (without looking at the new turns). Lets get it done.

DrP, it is actually only around 9 against the Deva's four. TC and Van are AI, and Yomi will be out of the game shortly.

Bellac, thanks for your input. Seemed everyone but you, me, and Squirrel were against Ulm and Ashdod in the first lineup. That is the reason why I went with option 2. The old heads aka/wise veterans (DrP and Chris) were ardently opposed. The merc idea was actually brought to the surface again, by the addition of R'lyeh and figuring a way to work them in.

Chris, Crom is the god referred to in the Conan stories. Ulm is apparently based somewhat on Germany and of course there's that whole barbarian thing going on there (just ask the Romans ). Never could hold onto Germania in a lasting way. What's your preference by the way?
