Yes, happy holidays all around. I just sent in my turn and the game hosted so I've postponed the next hosting to Jan. 2 to play it safe.

Something seems to have gone terribly wrong with my turn file. The descriptions for my own provinces read like scouting reports. For example, I see "This province contains about three hostile units. The army consists of mainly Unmarked Champions..."

Worse still, the results of a major battle (in province 138) were reversed. While the battle shows my army quite victorious, the province is owned by my opponent and containing a large number of his units. My army, other than a handful of commanders who appeared in neighboring provinces, seems to have disappeared, however.

I have resent the turn and tried reading it on two separate computers. Does anyone have any experience with such an issue? I don't suppose there is anything that could be done to fix it.

Sometimes the replay doesn't show what really happened.

So you actually lost the battle.

That's weird. I've never had that happen before. And, in my version, it was actually a pretty decisive victory.

Should I be concerned about my provinces descriptions reading like they are enemy provinces, or is that a known oddity as well?

Valerius has staled 3 of last 4 and about to stale again. Plus Sauro is about to stale for the 2nd time. Val mentioned some RL issues, do we need to find a sub?

They've each got two hours. Fortunately, I'm in a position to monitor the turn this time. So, if either is about to stale I can add time to the clock.

But, I do feel if Valerius doesn't either get his turn in or request for a delay before the currently scheduled hosting we should advertise for a sub.

Well, that's two stales in a row again for Tir Na N'Og. I emailed Valerius basically asking him if we could just sub his position out. The last time he staled twice in a row, 6 turns ago, I emailed him asking what his situation was. He didn't respond but managed to get the following two turns again before going AWOL again.

I'm not really good at handling these situations, in part because I have little tolerance for staling. This is why I don't normally admin. I only did in this case as a favor to Valerius.

I'm a busy guy myself but never let myself stale. I've managed to get turns in from a compound in the remote corner of South America over a pirated internet connection amidst rolling blackouts and a grueling work schedule. I bought the on-line distro once just to get my turn in on time using a borrowed computer. If I ever miss two turns in a row, I guarantee you that you should find a sub for me with no questions asked.

So, I guess I'm saying that I should not be the only arbiter in this case and needs some input from others, preferably others in the game and most preferably from Valerius, on how to proceed.

I'm really not comfortable with making a unilateral decision at this point. So, as no one else is offering any suggestions, I guess we'll wait out the clock and see what happens. If we get another stale though for TNN, I will advertise the position.

Yeah, we need to fill the nation if Val is gone. It's too big to go AI or leave to stale out.

A request for a sub for TNN has been posted.
