A pity though that Megawidget wasnt around to witness the fireworks outside his capital when Tien Chi kicked out the sieging Eaglemen.

Though I dont suppose that wasnt entirely out of the goodness of his heart

By the way; whats `The Huntress`? Is that a new CBM summon for Niefel?

I wish it were a summon. I'd be summoning the crap out of her. Every. Turn.

Unfortunately its just a random event hero. Got lucky! First time in a MP game that my luck scales have actually paid off.

Latest reports from the Frontlines brought to You by the
!!!Agarthan News Network!!!

*Reports have filtered in of the Atlantis leadership being deposed, though little is known about the new dude and his/her pretensions for pretenderhood.

**After what seemed to be a lull in the fighting, battle has yet erupted again between the Eagle kings and the Wizards of Tien Chi, and an interesting contrast of doctrines. Will Lightning Blitzkrieg win over Decisive Battle? Stay tuned to find out!

***Army observers witnessing the attempted storming of Yomi's castle report that Helheim's troops had routed after a brilliant defensive show by the garrison defenders - yet the castle still ended up lost to the attackers.(I saw it and I don't really believe it - perhaps either of those involved care to shed some light on the matter??)

****And in other news, the Lord of Niefelhelm had this to say about his fine looking Huntress:
I wish it were a summon. I'd be summoning the crap out of her. Every. Turn.

First off I must say that Agartha has much better news than Helheim's state run 24 hour per day only station running - "Our dear great leader and pretender god Bulldog".

It looks like someone flopped the score charts between Tien and Caelum...at least on provinces.

Regarding the battle. It was a remarkable thing. Here is the official report. The General in charge after surveying the field remarked. "We are in Deep ****". This fort is a far cry harded to capture than the last one. At that point remembering the movie Braveheart he ordered the nobles to take the cavalary and pretend they were retreating (hence the retreat message). He met the enemy in the field and at the crucial moment the cavalry came storming back to take the field.

In reality I have no clue what happened. The best I can come up with is that a lonely huskarl got separated and was hiding behind a rock. After the battle while the Enchantress, archers, remaining bears and fire drakes got drunk on wine in the celebration he slipped into camp and slaughtered them all.

In any event a win is a win .

Well, I think its pretty clear... lightning Blitzkrieg is kicking decisive battle's butt. This is what France must have felt like in WWII.

As long a you do not field/invent something to reliably stop my raiding eagle kings all is fine for me... I am already curious how this will end. While I can attack you everywhere, I also cannot hold the conquered provinces and I also cannot really fight your armies.

In fact, I did not want to fight you (yet), but since you started attacking me again by taking mictlans capital, I thought I should try out raiding with my eagle kings a bit. Actually, it was more out of desparation and I thought this way I can at least annoy you some... But as you experienced first hand, it turned out really well for me (at least until now).

Yeah, I suspected taking Mictlan's capital would be stirring the hornets nest... and the timing couldn't have been worse with my Atlantis' management issues freeing you up to deal with me a bit more unilaterally. But Mictlan was sitting right there ripe for the pickings! Impulse control is unfortunately a weak spot for me. Sadly, I think my human troops aren't particularly well equipped for dealing with your eagle kings- still I've got a bit of research in the pipeline, so we'll see how this goes.

Yomi is MIA... probably because he's down to one fort. While I can't blame him for wanting to stop at this point we all are waiting on him for our turns to post. Does anyone know someone who can turn him AI for us?

If everyone is ok I can send it to my alternate email account? I can take control and switch to AI. I don't think its going to give me any information that will be worth anything since I"m already neighboring it.

I'll wait for green light before I switch.
