Re: Besieging undead armies

Re: The bravest man alive

There's a line in Jurassic Park where the little girl sits down at the Macintosh computer and says "It's a Unix system. I know this!" and proceeds to use the strangest GUI ever to interact with the...

Re: OT - Books???

Glenn Cook's Black Company series - the first few have some of the feel of a Dominions game, complete with thugs and SC's!

I didn't know that. Explains a lot.[/QUOTE]

Does, doesn't it? Explains, for example, that I didn't read past the word "action" on that line of that post.

It should probably be noted that of these three, only the second and third have a chance of working for the dude in the picture above, because he got diseased (most likely) from being old. Old age...

Re: 25% autoroute question

I'm pretty sure they don't count as gone against the total army HP until they're off the field. I recently had an SP battle with four tricked out indy shambler chiefs leading a passle of Atlantean...

Re: The bravest man alive

Sick head means diseased.
Diseased is an affliction, so you'll also have a little heart, and the little heart will tell you about what it means to be diseased.

Diseased people lose a hit point...

Re: 25% autoroute question

What nations have you played? Some don't have any or very many heroes. Also, if you're not playing with mods, that can limit the number of heroes.

Re: Blowpipe paralyze

Un... ethical?
MP games could have agreed-upon rules that prevent it, I suppose, but I don't think rules against troop-type mixing are at all common. Mix elephants with slower, high-morale units to...

Re: Making non Magic national commanders more worthwhile

For MA Man, actually, CBM Knights are one of the three recruitable priests. Their temples are cheap, so you put them everywhere. It's not necessarily unlikely that you'll have a province with a fort...

Re: Making non Magic national commanders more worthwhile

You could have a commander that autocast one of the area berserking spells or a modded one with no range to get the units around him (don't put him near your mages!). Call the new spell "That one...

Re: Blowpipe paralyze

If you mix blowpipes in with shielded front line chaff, do opposing archers with "fire archers" target them?

Even if not, that mix set to "fire closest" can do some intriguing things to any army...

Re: chalice and the questing knights

They sometimes come up as a rare indy province, led by a paladin with a bunch of unique armaments, but not as a random event.


The knights-attack thing is a bad luck event for provinces with...

Re: Opening Gambit

Re: Modding "Trap" spells?
