Poor Zag'mi. He has been fearful of a local bear. So he has not wanted to leave the town I left him in to return to our original one. He said it was for fear of the town but I think it was more about fear of the wilderness if he had to split his forces leaving some as town guards.

I have relieved his concerns. I get word that the original capital has begun to show signs of our faith. The populace have begun cross-breeding with deep ones. We have hybrids appearing in various forms. Also, an occasional insane peasant which is a side-effect. But oh well, they also make good defenders. So now our lone experienced spearman has help in defending our home capital. Fine Zag'mi. Just stay where you are.

What happened exactly in that last post ? Did you get a special event giving you some hybrids ?

@@@ No they are autospawns specific to that nation. There are others. Like Bakemono automatically get goblins of various types appearing at their mines. And Barons get a yearly bunch of volunteer troops showing up at the capital

In my exploration south I have discovered a Coal Mine. It is claimed by some rogue dwarfs. Dwarfs are scrappy fighters and best to be avoided at any time. But to fight 11 of them over just a coal mine is definitely dumb at this point. I am moving on.

Olgothu reports running into 3 large lobsters. If he were alone Id worry but I think his shambler bodyguard can make it safe just to move past those.

(side note: at this point we are 16 turns into the game. The actual game actions have been a couple of mouse clicks to move a piece, then hit END turn. Only a couple of minutes in real time. I want to make it clear how much fun and how much story happens in a short time)

Ahhh... the very next month I discovered another Coal Mine. This time its claimed by 4 goblins. Much better. There is also a Cannibal Village but it is guarded by 4 cannibals and they have an elephant.

http://www.dom3minions.com/~gandalf/CoE3/AAR2/t17.JPG

I can do another Call of the Deep. I will let the results decide me. Well I got 4 hybrid spearmen.
So I will attack the coal mine.

Success. I did lose one of my spearmen but I am still happy with the results. I am not as interested in mines as others are. But some of the recruitables require that I have iron available. This mine will provide 1 gold and 1 iron production each month.

I think I will pass on the cannibal village for now. I do not wish to test myself against the elephant. Now is where my mighty giant Troll King ally would be handy

Another Coal Mine. Guarded by 8 Bakemono troops. They do not fly a flag so they must be independents. I could maybe take them but Id rather move on

Ahh.. my troll ally has run into another nation. It is only a single imp flying around scouting but it wears the colors of a nation. My ally is clueless but I am sure that means that a Demonologist is actively expanding his territory near to him.

AHA I was right. He stomped the little imp and immediatly a Demonologist showed up. With only a small force though. If my ally is smart (hey I can hope) he should stomp that wizard NOW while he is weak. If Demonologists get strong they can summon some very nasty denizens of the dark realms.

I am a bit jealous of my ally. The most interesting thing I have seen lately was an elephant.

On the other hand, Olgothu in his northerly exploration has run into a hunting party of 10 Triton mermen. He will definitely be stepping onto land to bypass that.

OH GREAT HILARITY!
My wonderous ally the mighty Troll King has had his Mother appear and take charge of things. She is not happy with him.
http://www.dom3minions.com/~gandalf/CoE3/AAR2/Mum.JPG
But wait. That can be a good thing. She is smarter than he is. And she is almost as huge and powerful. It means I will not simply be claiming his territory when I get there but still this can be to our advantage. Plus I hear that she has interesting powers to awaken the forests. If they continue to concentrate on the middle then I will be able to safely build up power along the coastlines. Yes... I think I like this turn of events.
