Sorry for staling again guys. I thought I had another day, until I saw the 12 hours notice this morning, before leaving for work.

To be honest, I think Curtadams has pretty much won at this point, but I'm willing to fight on, if that's what people (mostly Curt) want.

I'm willing to halt my remorseless counter-offensive against Helheim and declare him the victor if Szumo concurs.

I am very eager to end the game. I will cheerfully accept a concession by consensus. Szumo?

Yes, it's obvious that Hellheim is the winner. Well done, and thanks for the game everybody.
I'll be waiting for the AAR revenant

Congratulations! There was a time where I honestly thought this might be my first Dom3 win, but my lack of endgame experience hit me quite hard, I'm afraid. That and Utterdark. My plan was to end the horrible spell by taking C'tis, and killing whoever cast it, but sadly, my offensive ground to a halt, as my troops started deserting and dying from disease. When I finally decided to dispell it, Helheim had taken most of my territory.

Still, I had a number of kitted out tartarians and ember lords, but I just couldn't get them to work against Helheims SCs. I think I need some more endgame practice.

Anyway, thanks for the game everybody, it was fun, except for the end, which was kind of tedious. I think I'll demand that my next game has some other victory condition, besides total conquest.

How many gems did you dispel Utterdark with?

The problem with dispelling Utterdark by the time you did it was that I had about 2/3 of the world. So even though you got more mileage out of your money due to better mages, I had so much more money it was a net benefit to me. With the money I got, I was gearing up for a domkill, which I hadn't been able to do earlier since I couldn't recruit the Vanjarls I needed. The dispel would probably have sped up the win as the domkill was only going to take a few turns (I think...) while grinding through all the forts and stomping the wandering Tartarians would have taken quite a while.

Flop, it wasn't that your SCs were bad, it's that I avoided fighting them except on my terms. The fights were pretty much either army fights where I had a much larger army (and generally more SCs as well) or where I airdropped SCs designed to kill the specific ones you had there. The one way they weren't the best was that a lot had equip and scripts to jump into the back and attack, which would be very effective against a mage army but less so against my armies, which were more thug-oriented.

Now Szumo's SCs, yeesh. I think at one point I lost 5 SC battles in a row. That was certainly a learning experience!

Great game, thanks everybody!

I'll start updating it again after my other game (BSoD) is done.
