LA Ermor, ever since the PPP days. Name any other game that allows you to enslave the world with necromancy and turn it into undead-ridden wasteland?

MA Abysia for me. First i prefer having just enough tools than having a (a confusing) plethora of them and this nation has it in small magic and troop diversity. I also like their four magic path, especially blood magic and the horror summoning capability, and also the sheer power in their "I came, I saw, I set u on fire" approach. And I find enjoyment in the challenge to work with this few options. EDM 1.1 with zmeys and ember lords plays no small part in my preference of this nation.

Their theme catches me: the declining, small empire of masters of fire and evil warlocks with their experiments, enslaving the neighboring human provinces, sacrificing their inhabitants but still cant avoid their destiny to be extinct eventually (like a greek tragedy).

And perhaps the main reason: about 90% of my RPG characters were some kind of evil mages - some of them outright warlocks - so it was kinda natural for me to pair up with the masters of the abysian empire.

EA Pangaea. I am pretty sure the game devs were listening to James Brown's "Sex machine" and RATM's "Bulls on parade", and then went to look in history/myths for something that would fit the lyrics of those two songs

bloody mary for sure (late marignon). Fire and lightning and blood and astral, and I love their theme of corruption by Ulm's Illuminated Order. Plus some awesome national summons and perhaps the 2nd best blood sacrifice in the game.

Bogarus, Sauro and EA C'tis are definitely close favorites too.

I have no doubt whatsoever that Late Marignon are the strongest at blood sacrificial, it's one of the things that makes the nation so grossly unfair in some match ups.

Bandar Log. Monkies! Unlimited monkies!! Plus some of my favourite national SC summons in the game. There's just so many possibilities with a four-armed guy.

Also LA Ulm, because vampires (that don't sparkle in the sun) are always cool.

Yeah, the monkey nations are really fun, but what's better than a monkey? A demon monkey!(demon ape to be exact) Lanka is a really neat nation, tons of fun units and some really brilliant summons as well. Plus the theme of the nation is just great.

My other favourite has to be Jomon, for one simple reason, Shrimp Warriors!

What's better than uber bad *** fay vikings riding the lightning, dispensing death all over with dwarven forged gear and sacrificing human thralls to appease their bloody god? Necromantic ones! Helheim is just awesome thematically and fun to play.

Speaking of Helheim, Baalz, thanks for your Helheim guide. The general strategy worked quite well for me.
