Astral Corruption is an excellent counter to the Arcane Nexus. It significantly reduces the gem income from the Nexus and makes it much less cost-beneficial. It can expand a Nexus that was paying for itself in 6 turns to one that is paying for itself in 12.

A good move--not as good as a turn 2 dispel, but good nonetheless. Oh! and a successful Nexus Dispel as well! Lovely!

Bravo, guys, bravo!

No plan survives contact with the enemies, or, in this case, the players.

I still like the bidding; whens the last time you saw marverni, yomi, abysia, and kailasa in the endgame?

But in restrospect the map was a huge mistake. I *like* the map, but the choice of the map was too rapidly done. I should have stuck with arena - or, if I was to do it again - the Lo2 map. And the number and placement of VPs was definitely a mistake.

Mea Culpa!

I still don't like that Arena map. It creates major choke points outside the arena area. I made the Abstract Sky Tower map to create a more pliable Cumulative VP scenario. Check it out if you haven't already.

If you don't like it, tell me why you like Arena better.

Figure it was either overwritten by Astral Corruption, or the AN caster got eaten by a Doom Horror while trying to cast Wish or something.

Arco lost its global as well, likely in another horror-related incident

On a related note, I have concluded that I don't really have any practical means of fighting in the damn water. I was going to make a reverse-communion of Abominations, but cursory examination of my tarrasque reverse-communion experiment indicates that this strategy will fail.

Tarts tarts and more tarts.

We thought the Tarasque experiment was quite brilliant. At least for Kailasa.

24 hours added to the clock as per request. I have also turned Quickhost off. I'll switch it back on once this turn is in - prod me if I forget!
