Default Warthog - running

Warthog

Dark times had come to Sharivar. The once prosperous and peaceful world suffered from a grand vexation, a sense of great loss. It was as if a plague of mind and soul infested the very soil, spread with the wind, seeped through every crack and rathole from east to west, north to south. Brother turned against brother, children sat bored and hostile in the playgrounds, the elders stopped in the middle of a campfire tale, staring into the void, all stories forgotten. And soon the memories of better times began to fade. Happiness, lust, belief and courage became meaningless words, repeated like an abandoned baby sucks it's empty bottle to ease the pain.

But there where those who would seek, those who would not rest in hopeless content. And in the limbo new powers awakened, some good, some evil, or neither, all drawn by the vacuum of godlessness. They thrived on the seekers willing minds, grasped for the weak, the desperate. And everywhere in Sharivar there were those who stopped in their tasks, frozen in the moment of revelation. Straightening their crooked spines. Staring at their brethren with a new light in the eyes, the light of fanaticism.

And from the stuff of faith, the essence of dreams, the power of hope and despair, illusions became real, ideas began to take solid form...


Hey ho, another game!

I'm also posting this on the dom3mods fora here

hosted:llamaserver.net
Number of players: 12
Era: LA
Map: Sharivar
Mods: Conceptual balance, Endgame diversity, Worthy heroes 1.9
Settings:Sites 45, renaming on, graphs off, the rest are standard.
Diplomacy/metagame: Non-binding, roleplaying encouraged. Any metagame whining, blacklisting or similar wanky out of game BS will not be tolerated. (note that I'm a woman, and thus have absolutely no sense of mercy, regret or compromise)
House rules:Single commanders must not attack with the sole purpose of blocking army movement(i.e: scouts repeatedly stalling large armies etc.) No bogus orders, LaD must be used only for real battles etc. Be a good player, use common sense.

You may suggest changes, maps, and leave other input. I'll make the final decisions though. Same goes after game start, admin calls the shots.

The players:

Fantomen - Agartha, Ktonian dead
Nikelaos - Bogarus, Age of heroes
BvG - Ermor, Ashen empire
13lackGu4rd - Marignon, Conquerors of the sea
BigandScary- Ulm, Black forest
Ghoul31 - Midgård, Age of men
Waterhazard - C'tis, Desert tombs
Diceman - Jomon, Human daimyos
Squirreloid - Abysia, blood of humans
Baalz - Patala, Reign of the nagas
Samulus - Man, Towers of Chelms
Dark kitty - R'lyeh, Dreamlands

I think I'll be the crazy one and choose Bogarus.

I'll try Marignon. also, if we get enough players Sharivar is a great map for us to use. it's not a wrap around but its balanced and has seen plenty of MP games already...

You're in.

I have no problem with your nation choice as such, but as I see from your post count that you might be a new player, I'd like to note that Ashen empire is extremely micromanagement intensive. Also a bit tricky to leverage and you need to expect everyone to gang up on you. In short, it's not a nation I'd personally recommend for your first MP game. But do as you wish.

Welcome aboard 13lackGu4rd. Sharivar is not a bad choice, and I believe there is a version with more balanced special sites somewhere, right?

I agree completely. But they're soooo totally weird, I just couldn't resist..

Alas I expect to be not more then an advanced independent, no matter what nation i try (and fail) to play, so I might as well have some weird undead fun

They are cool, but for a new player they are often more of an unpleasant burden than fun. If you want to play them in a multiplayer game, I would suggest that you first play a game or 4 against the computer and that you read some guides, specifically Velusion's old guide(which technically no longer is accurate to the patched game version) but it is an awesome introduction to how Ermor plays.
