Care to explain Debug Mode to the uninitiated?

Debug mod, not mode. It's a mod which basically allows you to recruit/build/cast everything you want for free so you can playtest all funky combos like what if I equipped a Gift-of-reasoned prophetised troll knight with a flambeau, Amon Hotep and a ring of wizardry?

I daresay that SP remains fun if you use for instance the chaos maps that Gandalf Parker generates. Or if you actually try to roleplay a bit or try fancy strategies.

Letting us know if we were helpful to you might be a good idea. If we were not, we can try again :P

I have to agree with the OP, I picked up Dom3 and played the demo a couple times and then abandoned it for a year or two because I just didn't understand how to marshal my resources to win. Eventually I stumbled onto these forums and Baalz's guides. I had in fact started up an SP game as Helheim and was slowly making headway against one AI, and then about to get crushed by the other AIs, when I read Baalz's Helheim guide. Suddenly, I got it. Oh, so THAT's how you are supposed to use those, THAT's why these over here are getting crushed, THAT's what is missing from my bless...

Then I dove into MP with Helheim in a big game and did very well indeed.

Sorry about my silence gentlemen, I've been stuck working pretty solidly. Boo!

Anyhoo, I have had a chance to read what people have been saying and it has been rather handy. Especial thanks to rdonj and your big wall of help! Thanks to that I have felt a bit more in control of my latest SP game. I've also found sticking to one race for a few games kinda helped as well.

Next step is to join in a practice MP game as soon as my work is done. (Again, boo!)

Good to hear Yeah, sticking to one race until you win is a good plan. You can see what worked and what didn't work, and adjust your build accordingly. In time, you should feel reasonably comfortable building a pretender for any nation. Or you can just always play one nation, though it can be hard to do that in MP.
