GAME IS NOW SET UP. It is time to send pretenders. Be sure to have the mod on when you make the pretender and the right nation. I'm only saying this because I've made those mistakes before.

GOOD LUCK, HAVE FUN.

since its a lot of people first game on llama server, heres the faq for how it works, how to send in your pretenders, etc.

http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/showthread.php?t=35160

most relevant to us at the moment is part 1 of it

Quote:
Firstly, you should only join a game if you've found there's a thread for it on this board, you've read it, and they're still looking for players. Then you should post on the thread saying what nation you'll be. To actually join the game:

- Make sure you have the same mods enabled as the game you're playing in (Preferences->Mod Preferences) although only mods affecting pretender design, such as Conceptual Balance, actually matter
- Go to Game Tools -> Create a pretender god in Dominions. Don't set a password, since for PBEM games they're not helpful and occasionally annoying (e.g. if you need a sub)
- Go to the savedgames/newlords folder in the dominions directory, and find your pretender file (e.g. mid_pythium_0.2h)
- E-mail the file to: pretenders[ at ]llamaserver[ dot ]net
- Crucially, you must have the game name in the subject line of your e-mail

A few minutes later you should get a confirmation e-mail, and if you check the website you should find your nation added to the list of nations which have joined the game.

If later you think of an improvement to your pretender, you can send it in again. Provided the game hasn't actually started the server will accept your revised pretender, and send you an e-mail to say so.

btw, the CBM mod is freaking amazing. I've always wondered why the giant Agartha uses the same spear lengths as normal sized human, didn't make much sense, and the CBM mod addresses this small detail. Running some single players right now. Let's hope I don't stay up too late today

I know I'm not a player, but I have one other suggestion.
Hang in there and have fun. Even if it looks like you are not going to win, create secondary goal, be a pain in someone's butt. This is how you have fun and learn the game.
Enjoy!

This going to be a bit embarrassing to say, but I think I sent the wrong pretender. I'll need to restart the 'Send Pretender' part, so I ask do you all mind if I do that?

Regardless of yes or no,Sorry all.
