That's a good idea. I'd really prefer that, unless anyone objects.
Done. I'll switch back if anybody objects.

I am certainly learning a lot about the endgame. I was so proud of my kitting out of Magog to be the ultimate SC-disposer and then the Dimensional Rod didn't do squat plus he knocked himself out and basically snoozed the entire battle.

Nice Szumo.

Citadel of the Lore Masters is right next to your capitol. No wonder you're research was so good in the beginning.

Didn't use them much for research, shamans were more cost effective with my scales.

Thanks for the extension. I had to attend a wedding in Sweden, which kind of snuck up on me. I'm back now, and have handed in my turn.

Had to give myself a 12 hour extension due to work crisis.

I'd rather not have quick hosting on at the moment. I was using it this turn - I sent in a partial (albeit mostly complete) turn Saturday, then squeezed in the completion about an hour before the roll. I admit I'm probably the only one benefitting at this point.

That's cool with me. In one of my other games, my turns have grown so incredibly complicated that I'll usually start off sending a turn within the first 36 hours, and then send 2-3 revised turns afterward, so I feel your pain.

As far as this game goes, I have no chance of winning. The only reason I haven't gone AI yet is so I don't spoil the game for everyone else and I want to make the AAR interesting when I finally complete it.

As long as the other guys want to keep fighting, I'll hang in there until the bitter end, but I was so crippled by my war with C'tis and Utterdark that all I can field right now is a single semi-decent army.

After a few setbacks this last turn, where we lost most of our territory to the dastardly Helheimians, what's left of our high-command convened an emergency session to discuss our precarious military situation and determined in an unanimous vote that we've still got this thing won.

Here's the master plan:
  • Reform our army and put a smack-down on Helheim's sieges.
  • Send an army to exterminate C'tis and his sinister lizard-men (he's still enemy #1).
  • Boot out T'ien from our capitol (or whoever is squatting on it now)
  • Kick Helheim's ***.
  • Liberate the world.
