And not stepping back to regroup when I should have. Leaving that Naiad without bodyguards was dumb too.
The whole quagmire + rigor mortis + grip of winter you often used was really effective. Relief is not enough to counter it. I was worried that naiad was going to add foul vapors to the mix, and just managed to send enough assassins to that province to kill it.

C'tis's Burden really did not help me much at all. It was bearable in my growth-2 dominion, but not in your death-3.

R'lyeh was an enigma. Did anyone have an arrangement with him? Or did he have a plan? I wasted a lot of chaff on him - the reason my armies were never as huge as some of you might have expected. We had probably four battles a turn from turn 25 on. And he only played 1/2 those turns!
I had a peace agreement with R'lyeh, not a formal NAP or anything. He got most of Gath's water provinces when I killed Gath. I got hit with a few Mind Hunts and Dreams after he went AI.

vfb, when you sieged the province with the enchantment site the first time, I had a mage inside cast iron walls. The fort was down to zero, you had a huge army on it, and I did not think it would work. Next turn, you had moved the army south (instead of storming), and there was just one tart left in the siege. My fort was up to 300 defense. Was he set to storm alone, or continue siege? I really thought I was wasting the gems.
I don't think Iron Walls is very good. I tried it myself in a recent game. Really, you need troops inside that are strong enough to rebuild. I ran out of jaguars and in the end used Stygian Paths to move a whole mess of Bats and Fiends down into your province, and their strength plus flight bonus really takes down walls fast.

I think I had planned on storming immediately with that Tart, but he decided to go crazy that month.

I did get foul vapors into the mix once, my pretender cast it. She was supposed to take over for him in that respect.

Btw, in our first large battle, my pretender was supposed to cast mass flight. Along with Grip of Winter + Rigor Mortis + Quagmire, I had 50 behemoths scripted to attack rear. They were supposed to fly right over your helpless jags and land on those delicious looking turkeies(sic). When I opened the turn and looked at the battle summary, I thought I was a genius. Then I watched the battle. Not even close to what I expected. I don't remember whether he even bothered to cast it, but there was your Sleeper standing in the middle of the field holding Tempest, like some great Icelandic volcano, canceling all flights. And my behemoths all bumbled right into the swords of your already dying and practically immobilized jaguar warrior army. Fog Warriors was huge for you in most of our battles. Are the thunderstrikes from Tempest, whether cast by the wielder or by the blade itself, affected by the air level of the wielder?

Very well. Mictlan has won the game. I had fun most of the time, and I hope most of you had fun too.

Good luck, see you again
