Norfleet is an unknown quantity at this point

In these specific conditions, or in general? In general, it is generally not disputed that Tien Chi is among the weakest nations. Their magical abilities can be compared to a flooded parking lot: Lots of breadth, but absolutely no depth. In these specific conditions, any nation that would ordinarily benefit greatly from Mausoleums or Watchtowers, due to use no-resource troops, that now can't take them and is thus overcharged in both nation points and gold for a castle that adds only useless features, is screwed. Nations that cannot or should not take a watchtower or mausoleum, or have a cheap substitute that isn't one of the above, benefit greatly.

I'm going to play Marignon (never played before). I too, will proably be in a world of hurt.

I've actually only played a single game which is still in progress, and thats as Ulm (not including countless demo games).

But, I can't learn nothing from the AI behavior, I need human opponents to educate me.

ok, since thufir has uploaded, there are currently 9 pretenders in it, so i'll start the game tomorrow morning. a tenth is probably possible, if its a water nation.


good luck all

Ok, guys. Heads up. I will probably go stale Saturday as I will be out of town, so a couple of things:

1) I apologize. I'm sure I'm not the only one to ever go out of town, so I can't be the only one to have an occasional stale turn (I'll hit Friday and Sunday no problem). But it is my first MP game so thought I would mention it. Its not a drop. I won't drop...I used to spend $6.50 every two weeks playing Middle-Earth PBM even with a losing nation until the bitter end.

2) Don't take advantage of me

There are nine pretenders up but it says Ermor is Norfleet and there are no water nations. If Ozymandius takes Ermor and Norfleet moves to R'lyeh, that would make ten and I'd be out. But if Norfleet is sticking with Ermor and I get a response before the game starts I'll take Atlantis. I don't really like any of the Atlantis pretenders but I don't feel like playing R'lyeh.

lol

so far i'm not sure if ozymandias has tried to upload. norf hasn't relinquished the slot by going "anonymous". i'll go w/ the general will on what should happen - but as things stand now, there is an open water slot. If ozymandias shows, i can always kick open the slot.

krooldeath: on 25 hour quick host, its possible that you might not stale a turn. lets say you get in a turn friday evening, but the Last guy doesn't get his in until sat morning - then your next turn won't be absolutely due until sunday morming. otherwise, don't worry about it - one stale turn isn't so bad, IMO.
