Default LA Newbie Game: Blood Sacrifices (BS!) [Started] [14/14]

Name; Blood Sacrifices (BS!)
Host: The land of Peruvian Llamas (aka Llamaserver)
Age: LA
Map: Riverlands
How Often on Turns: 36 hours quickhost to start, additional turn extensions upon request.
Number of Players: 14
Mods: CBM 1.92
Non-Standard Settings: Special Site freq. 45%; Hall of Fame entries 15; rename on; No graphs (this is removable by popular demand);
Victory Conditions: Last one standing (or whoever is willing to go on with the late game grind)
Diplomacy Policy: All trades are expected to be completed. It's just good sportsmanship. Everything else? Go nuts. Just keep in mind that breaking treaties may or may not earn you a reputation, both in game and out. You can also choose whether or not to keep treaties secret or announce them publically in the thread (or via message system). Doesn't do anything, of course, except makes betrayals known (and thus attaches a cost to breaking treaties). Coalitions against one nation are also allowed (and tbh, encouraged when necessary [again, sharing of intel]).

Also, you are allowed to pick LA Ermor or LA R'lyeh, just remember that doing so will likely make you an automatic diplomatic pariah. No one likes bordering those pop-killing dominions and all. And do be aware that you will also likely die from the micromanagement, so don't take these up if you're the faint of heart.

Also, the more thematic and IC you are for in-game and diplomatic messagings, the more awesome points you win (redeemable for absolutely nothing).

Also, what are considered exploits and really blatant cheese (free Ettins from the Atlantean City, sending 50 items to a nation who just put up Forge of the Ancients, etc.) is very much frowned upon.


Also, I personally prefer to remove score graphs from a game, because it actively rewards scouting and diplomacy versus a game where it doesn't. It being late age and scouts being abundant, it should be quite easy for everyone to maintain large scout networks. It also incentivizes the use of patrollers like Watchers to keep your army size, etc, under wraps, and of remote scouting spells like Astral Windows. It just in my opinion adds a new dynamic to the game (though I can be easily overruled if the supermajority [66%] prefer score graphs on).

Nations (14/14)
Me - LA Ulm
Anaconda - LA R'lyeh
Angry_Hominid - LA Caelum
mattyburn7 - LA Abysia
Strabo - LA Atlantis
skymoon - LA Utgard
himselfbh - LA Jomon

lunaje - LA Midgard
Balaskar - LA Gath

I'm busy and shouldn't play but don't think I can resist.

I'm all for score graphs being off. I love looking at them, but I agree. It really adds to the game to have them off.

I'll wait and see who everyone else picks and then scarf off the bottom.

ok...that's all vague. LOL. So yes I'm in. Nation unknown!

Define Newbie? I've played about 8-10 MP games. If you'll still have me, i would join as Patala.

Also, i require first turn sets to start at 30h or even 28h instead of 24. This is because i often work 12-16h shifts and cannot submit until 11 or 12pm after submitting at like 8 the night before (27-28h differences). I can still submit every day in the early game- i just can't submit on exactly a 24h schedule.


MAPS: I don't like the start coding on Land of Legends even though the map itself is pretty cool. I find that i often start with only two neighboring provinces, neither of which provinces good resources. And if you are resource constrained for your starting troops, this can be very bad indeed.

I define newbie as ~10 games or less.

That's fine.

There are a couple revised "fix" starts for Land of Legends which help fix that problem, but we can take that into account.

Any preference on the maps listed? The final map will likely determine the number of players we use. I don't want more than 12 players if we're going to use Shadowshore, but Riverlands I'd prefer to hit 14 players. I'm honestly leaning towards Riverlands this game, but Oriana is another good map (when the glaringly OP sites are removed, of course).

I'm naturally going to assume R'lyeh would prefer Oriana (due to concentration of water provinces), and Atlantis and Marignon would prefer Riverlands (due to sailing).
