Yeah I did a test game with Bandar Log. They are pretty good.


Now you're looking for the secret. But you won’t find it because of course, you're not really looking. You don't really want to work it out. You want to be fooled.

Looks like all pretenders are in.

We're still missing Moe's pretender, looks like. Not that it matters, since he has all weekend.

And also, the bois are here. Don't mess with me and my crew.




Intimidating fellows, I know. There's some of these cats to back 'em up as well.

Luckily, Ulm has a very straight forward strategy. Use your awesome troops to kill things, and get these useful spells:

Earth Meld -- It's in Alteration, and stops elite sacreds in their tracks. Don't forget to use your Guardians to help lay the smack down if you're bless rushed.
Magma Eruption -- It's in Evocation. Kills pretty much everything dead.
Summon Earth Power/Phoenix Power -- They're the same level in Conjuration. Makes your mages stronger in battle. Earth Power even gives reinvigoration, which is extremely useful.

There are many other useful spells, but if I were playing Ulm, that's what I'd go for immediately. Particularly Earth Meld. It's low research and can stop an early game rush in its tracks. The main thing to remember is to err on the side of excess when it comes to combat mages. When something like Magma Eruption comes online, you should seriously spam the hell out of it for greatest effect.

But Bandar Log is pretty clearly set up for Stellar Cascades spam and N buffs. Lots of S magic (but not cascades) have magic resistance negates, and Ulm is not exactly great in the MR department. I've actually never played them before, but their summons look cool, if not exactly easy to reach.

I haven't really played Arco before, so I'm still not totally sure what I'm going to do with them. They seem to lack the "flash" of a lot of other nations I like. But Healer(3) on a recruit anywhere mage is very nice.

Luckily Ulm is set up to take Drain for the extra MR. They aren't necessarily a super strong nation, but those troops are beastly.

Communion nature magic can seriously buff some monkeys later. Bandar's sacreds (especially those tiger riders) are also pretty serious with a W bless.

Arco gets elephants to expand and line infantry escorts. Priestesses keep your elephants from getting too beat up with afflictions. They also keep your old mages from getting afflictions. They ALSO can get rid of afflictions on a pretender. They can ALSO keep your troops fighting longer. They are amazing. Communion capable mystics and astrologers can do some serious evocations and buffing. I like Arco.

I've gone through so many pretender chassis in the last 48 hours.

Are you still tinkering?  I got a guy in and can kick it off any time.


Oh, and how are these thrones?

I feel like that is a lot of thrones for the map. We'll be swimming in thrones. I like the ratios, though.

Maybe just tone it down a touch?
 1:10
2:5
3:2

17 or 18 to win?

That's still 17 thrones on a 140ish province map.

It's more like I just can't make up my mind. I'm good to go.

Snark waited in the courtyard of the ancient castle, his wolf-brother, Yorb, peered about restlessly.

The armies are mobilising, yes yes, it is as the Gyjas forsaw. We obey.

A clump of giants stood opposite his unit of wolf-kin, waiting for orders, trimming beards and boasting to each other about past raids into human lands. The leader of this expeditionary force entered into the courtyard, followed by a fur covered giant, he seemed taller than the rest, his eyes shone with intent.

His words rumbled across the frost-lined stones like an avalanche.

"Chosen of Tesnek! Hear His words!"

Silence descended from the usually rowdy raiders. The tension was palpable.

"The time for petty raids is over! It has been foretold by the Gyjas for an age, the time of Tesnek is here! Plunder, loot and land are your right!"

Snark licked his cold-cracked lips in anticipation, although he would consider plunder and loot the same thing he wasn't about to argue semantics with the mouthpiece of a god.

"Go now, take what is ours! Claim it all!"

The giants roared enthusiastically and beat their shields, Snark and his kin merely slid onto the backs of their furred brothers and sisters and nodded silently among themselves, before pacing from the courtyard.

The Gyjas know all, yes yes, and now we ride.

So far we're just expanding. I don't think anyone would even have first contact with another civ yet.

Well, uh, the very first province I took was good for my magic diversity. That was pretty exciting. And I'm already seeing black candles, so I'm assuming one of you unenlightened barbarians are nearby. I don't play a lot of MA so I'm not really sure what to expect from certain nations, but the expansion phase is usually a pretty sedate and bland time.

Things will probably heat up when borders are established and the real diplomancy starts cranking out. But even then, most communication will probably be private out of necessity. You have to be able to lie about yourself and others, which can be somewhat undermined by giving an exciting play-by-play in a public place. :D
