Klatu already has Man chosen, basically the only nation he has found that he likes.

I'll try Vanheim.. gonna play a few SP with them in the next few days to try it out.

Got a question: if someone takes a water race, and nobody else invests in equipment or spells or themes to go in the water, does that mean the water race is guaranteed to stay alive the entire game without being attacked?

I would like to join. Could I be Caelum? Also could my brother perhaps play? He would like to play as Arcoscephale.

Our list of players

Aku - Abysia
Klatu - Man
Boron - Pythium
Pickles - Ryleh?
Drool - I think Ulm(let me know on this)
Starwarsluke - Caelum
Lukes brother - ?
Alexi - Vanheim?
PashaDawg - Undecided
Panther - T'ien Ch'i

Alexi the answer to your question I suppose would be yeah as far as I know. Pickles are you staying with Ryleh? Alexi tell me if you change your mind about Vanheim.

Any objections to the game settings?

I will take T'ien Ch'i. Thanks for the invitation. I have played a lot of SP against hard CPs so I do know the basics.

Yes if noone goes amphibious but its a big if as most nations can do it eventually. Water races have a distinct advantage of security in the early to mid game (& I have not played beyond this) but they have nasty indeps to deal with and awkward geography so seem reasonably balanced in my limited experience.

And Yes Aku I will stick with R'lyeh as noone
else seems to want to go aquatic.

Well the map Karan says 20 water provinces and I think you connect to all of them but 1 or 2 so you can get at least 18 provinces without stepping on land which is really nice.

Oh and Pickles just in case you havent used ryleh before use the priests not the mages to go in the summoning circle in the capital because they have a small chance of getting feebleminded.

We just actually need a few more confirmations of what nations people are using. Lets just use these settings (pasting from post below).

Number of starting provinces: 1
Stength of Independents: 6
Special Site Frequency: 50
World Richness: Normal
Random Events: Common
Score Graphs: Disabled
Hall of Fame: 15
Standard Research
Standard Victory
Renaming is Allowed

24 hour Quickhost

Map is Karan

http://ulm.illwinter.com/dom2/karan.zip

Players:

Aku - Abysia
Klatu - Man
Boron - Pythium
Pickles - Ryleh
Drool - I think Ulm(let me know on this)
Starwarsluke - Caelum
Lukes brother - ?
Alexi - Vanheim?
PashaDawg - Machaka
Panther - T'ien C'hi

I just need confirmation from Drool. I need nations for Lukes brother(and his name) and PashaDawg. Also Alexi just want to make sure you like Vanheim before I take the ? off.

Ha small chance my arse. I am playing R'lyeh in another game and I have so far spent 750 gold to get 100 gold worth of creatures.

Actually there is a small chance cos they usually get eaten by the summons before they go mad - though I have had both happen on the same turn.
It really is a stupid pointless and above all random task (not that this stops me)

On Karan you are connected to 18/19 of the wet provinces but they are still a long way from one another and in dead ends so it is hard to expand in an efficient manner.

I tried Ryleh once in SP and the mages have random picks I was able to get it to make the chalice to cure the feeblemind so i was getting high summons skills on my guys. Anyway I don't care for water too much. They are interesting but just not for me. But I did really like that summoning circle thing because it was unique to Ryleh.
