Moderator Warcry - new semi-rand game :)

Here comes a game that I promised for some time. Rules are a combination of RAND ones and normal multiplayer games, so:

- nations are random [but you can name 3 you don't want to roll]
- players are known and you know who plays who
- diplomacy is allowed
- no trading is allowed [or donations]

Other settings:

Era: MA
Map: Dawn of Dominions [adapted for MA, details lower]
Settings: standard for MA, magic sites 50, HoF 15, Renaming ON
Mods: CBM 1.6, Zlefin's F&W thugs [http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/showthread.php?t=43378]
Victory conditions: 6/12 VPs
Players: 12




Players:
01 Caelum - Zeldor
02 Atlantis - FrozenLlama
03 Agartha - Pashadawg
04 Arco - Baalz
05 Vanheim - Ferrosol [Omnirizon as a sub now]
06 Ermor - Quitti
07 Jotunheim - Lolomo
08 CTis - Burnsaber
09 Eriu - Micah
10 Bandar Log - QM [Trumanator as a sub now]
11 Pangaea - Lingchih
12 Pythium - Graeme Dice

Other important reminder:
- no cheating [if you are not sure it's cheating, ask]
- no Sickle farming
- patrolling with immobile commanders allowed [minor bug]

Ok, just waiting on 4 players, I guess that it should be easily to fill, probably till Sunday, especially with few people PMing with interest in that game.

So please, take a look at the map and see if you have any suggestions. Especially for Agartha, Caelum and Eriu. I was thinking about switching Pan for Machaka, but I don't think they'd be able to survive long enough.

I will also need names of provs that need changing, at least in Pan neighbourhood. Eriu's too.

Ok, it looks like there will be just 1 spot for volunteers, unless someone from invite list decides to play after all tomorrow. Will let you all know tomorrow evening.

What's sickle farming? If it's using the sickle artifact to get death gems, I think it would be pretty hard to determine what is "farming" and what is "normal" usage. Can we just mod it out?

Sickle farming would be using the sickle with remote attack spells to harvest 30 death gems a turn. Either get somebody to attack one of your provinces with remote attack spells, or cast ghost riders on your own province.

Well, not certainly remotes, but just Sickle + ally suiciding troops against it.

Just because I'm a bit anal about these things sometimes, it's actually the Mindless tag that is the key when it comes to getting gems from the Sickle. Since killing a Lich for example (which is Lifeless), will net you a gem.

After having the Sickle in three games over the summer, I found no way of self abusing it. As all the remote attack spells you can cast with the 'independents' tag (thereby generating a battle) bring no returns gem wise. It definitely takes two to tango for Sickle farming. (hence why I'm guessing it's on the banned exploit list)

Or of course just take Misfortune 3 (or cast Baleful Star on yourself) and wait for the Barbs/Knights to turn up (or, now it's mentioned, is attacking barbarians with the Sickle an exploit as well?)

Didn't realize that. I never managed to quite get to the point that I could try it out except in one game that crashed just before I managed to reach Con 9.
