Default Is there a barbarian attack event or is this a bug?

Events like this completely nerf an AI nation at start and they go nowhere!

There are quite a few of random events of some kind of independents attacking one of your provinces, barbarians is one of them. There are also vinemen, knights, and a band of adventurers. It's just extremely unlikely to hit your capitol on turn 2-3 like what looks to have happened there.

Make an artifact Sickle that makes death gems from the souls of these you slay, and you will just love these pretty naive barbarians!

I think troglodytes are the worst. Something like 50 size four tramplers can take down just about any PD that hasn't been bought in ridiculous numbers. IIRC the event also kills a lot of population.

The vampire count event is usually hilariously inneffective.

The Ancient Presence is a bit worse than that. It brings you from 30K pop to oh, about 500 or so. And then you've got a province full of manikin beasties plus the Ancient Presence himself to tidy up.

The trog event also gives a magical site (Deepest Cavern) with 1E income.

Default Re: Is there a barbarian attack event or is this a bug?

the ancient presence is by far the worst - I was engaged in a war w/ Helheim (i was subbing into a fairly weak shinu in a megagame), and then I no longer saw any real resistance... get to his capital, and it had been besieged by a large ancient presence force

although once Norfleet had his mictlan capital besieged by a vampire count and couldn't break out (this was in Dom II before it was figured out that mict troops were actually great w/ a high bless), so he had to pull the plug on the server in order to avoid a loss

I didn't even know about this one. Do you need turmoil 3 or something to get it?

Strong Growth + Magic scales, I believe.
