Ugh.

Game over for Man. We just lost 90 of our provinces to R'yleh's sneak attack. We'll fight back, but it's not looking good.

On an admin note.

48 delay as requested

new 48 hour hosting cycle as requested

Well, I have to admit, I wouldn't mind throwing in the towel in this game. Gath is doing fine but the dynamics of the game seem to make it kind of pointless. I have no way to get into the ocean and don't see anyone else who can, and the only way to expand at this point is to attack land neighbors, which just makes it easier for R'lyeh like what happened with Ermor. I just see R'lyeh winning this game no matter what happens - This is first MP game I've been in with LA R'lyeh and I think its too unbalanced especially without having any nations with decent recruitable underwater units in the game and with this map. And I think Incabulos has done a great job strategically / diplomatically getting on land and taking out weakened nations.

I'm happy to give up myself D:

I don't think R'yleh is too terribly unbalanced, this map was just a horrible decision. Ry'leh had access to attack any and every land nation instead of having to chew inwards from a single coast. I thought that would be a disadvantage, but it turned out otherwise. There were also simply too many water provinces.

Exactly, they border every nation and can pick who to attack at any time. And with graphs off, they have the best intel. And with no other nations in the game with recruitable underwater troops - Mictlan, Atlantis, Patala - nobody can take the fight to them. Basically they can just pick land nations off as they see fit.

I am also willing to cede victory to rlyeh.

I had a bad start due to missfortune, and after that ermor decided that they will use their last breath to raid me . It seems that rlyeh considers me so weak that they rather attack man first as they know they can take me whenever they like.

I wouldn't mind seeing some last turns posted if we are to stop here,
I'm started towards news of the greater world as I at most controlled four provinces.

Yeah the extended coast was a strength not a weakness.

I spent the first part of the game just recruiting the tentacled priests and building temples so I could push my dominion.

I will post info/ a turn file once I know the game is conceeded.

I certainly would have had a much harder time in a map with more ocean but less coast. At least my opportunity to attack would have been more limited making my chaff much less useful, and attacks like the one I just launched against man impossible.

I think its conceded unless anyone objects. I had the sense Gath was probably in the best condition to stop you (we had Arcos and Ctis capitals) but with no land border and no W mages and crappy gem income in spite of searching everywhere (I think I counted 19 Gnome Lores and +3 E income ) we give up!

No objection to declaring R'lyeh winner.
