Dominion 4 EA game
« on: March 22, 2017, 11:13:37 PM »
EA it is. I'd like to delay the start of this game until at least the 29th. I have a big thing coming up.

To be clear this time, indies shall be at 5. Magic sites shall be default for the era. Random events will be common. Story events can be on. Diplomacy is Machiavellian. Trades are binding.I think that covers it aside from a map. Hall of game shall be 15.

Claim your nations. As I have said before, I would like to try Ur.

Pretenders:
Racurte: Ur
Montarion: Abysia
Zoltan: Mictlan
Pale Horse: Tir Na Nog
Inks: Fomoria
Bad Skeelz:Neiflheim
Jingo:Helheim
Maurader Moe: Tien Chi

You guys don't need to rush a second game on my account.  I've got Mass Effect to keep me occupied.   8)

That said, I'd certainly be up for another game, but I'll be out of town next weekend so we might not start until after then.

I'd also like to float the idea of a NationGen game.

We'd have to impose some limitations on clearly broken nations.  Probably make everyone post their genned nations for approval, before hand.

I don't really want to do nationgen this game. This one is vanilla EA.

If you guys want a nationgen game later, cool. We'll have to come up with some rules. Generally to avoid people genning endlessly I think you have someone gen a set number of nations for you and you pick.

But yes, I want a regular EA game for now. I still have a lot of normal nations I want to experiment with.

Sally forth, noble youth. Your legend has only begun.

I put up the EA server if people want to punch in pretenders.  I think we're aiming to start on Monday? 

It's the same IP as other game but 1 port higher.

EDIT: Oh, and what do we want to do for thrones?  Same ratio as other game?  Another option we've played is 4 L3 thrones, requiring all to win.

Why not both?

Heh. Uh, Monday sounds like a good start date, though I can start anytime now.

As far as thrones go, we can vote if people have a preference. I both like having a lot of thrones and like the idea of basically having to contend with other players without having thrones for a decent portion of the game.

I'll post back later when I've thought of which one I like better.

That means you can always resubmit, Pale Horse, if you think of something better. (W9E4 is something you should really consider as a bless for your sacred Tuatha warriors. It will also benefit any Ri thugs you make. I know a lot of people consider W to be a weak path, but later on when you are dropping huge falling frosts on people with your pretender you can laugh.)

On a different note, I've been fooling around with NationGen once more.

Got myself an Avvite nation that's been pretty decent.  Until I saw one of the randomly generated heroes..with a population eating value of 1200 per turn.

Fortunately, Abyssia declared war on me before they were really ready and I marched my new, glutenous man-eater hero down to their volcano with an army at his back and sat him in the province to feast on pre-cooked flesh.

LOL!  How can even a god find the time to eat  40 people a day?!

Maybe next game, after MA finishes, we do NationGen?  I think it can work out pretty good if each players gets like 3 or so nations to choose from.  That way you're not likely to be screwed with a completely terrible nation.

Another NationGen derail:

I've found my Late Age civilization.  It took 24 hours to finally gen, but I'm sticking with them if for no other reason than shear awesome-sauce.

Sidhe who've lingered in the land beyond the passing of their kind and have enslaved the wild to wage war.  Half-men from Pangae have been forced into servitude and centaurs and minotaurs fill the ranks of their armies.  To be mounted is a sign of prestige and the elite Sidhe and their Commanders make use of exotic mounts.  Holy warriors who have bound great serpents to serve as their steeds.  Jaguar mounted scouts who slip stealthily through the thickest of forests and open plains.  The Priests of the land augment their status by riding great bears into battle and the Sorcerers of the New God sit bestride gigantic moose from the depths of the woods.

The Sidhe will rise, again (or, more likely, be stomped into the ground.  Filthy neckers).

Are you sure it's not because you've been living on the couch over there? I swear to god. Every 6 hours when I check turns,  you are there, fine-tuning your mage scripts.

If we do nationgen next, I vote 5 choices, genned by someone else randomly.

I vote for 2 chances to mulligan with no takebacks. This way there is an incentive to find a way to make your current nation work if it's mediocre and not awful.

If we take the best of 5 approach, We're going to have nothing but elite minotaur sacreds and nations of flaming, flying hellspawn everywhere.

We'll also probably need an administrator to dole out the genned nations.

I'm actually currently playing a nationgen game on clockwork hounds.Everyone just got a random nation and we were stuck with it.

I can just gen 40 nations at once and we go like... Jingo gets 1-5, racurtne gets 6-10, Moe gets 11-15, etc.

From a lot of testing...
About 1 in 3 nations are not complete garbage.
About 1 in 10 are decent to good.
About 1 in 25 are overpowered.

We can hedge a few things by imposing certain requirements on generation.  Like, no sacred giants or zotz nations (often overpowered), or no hoburg, lizard, or goat-giant nations (usually underpowered).

We could also do something like a reverse draft so everyone is guaranteed to get a BAD nation.   ;D

Yeah I like the Bad nation strategy. I think it's 100% more fun to find a way to discover and leverage the strengths of rough turd than start with a front runner.

And it makes you better at the game.
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.

I figure something like generate 24 nations, we pick the worst 8 and then distribute randomly.

Was he guarding a Throne? Level 3 Thrones tend to have Titans and stuff guarding them.

For those of you who haven't ever delved into Blood Magic, that there is one of your end-game summons.

He apparently just poofed up on Helheim's castle.

Your pre-edited sentiment wasn't wrong. This seems like a good blitz map? Personally, I have few enough games going that I don't mind larger ones where you can build up more.

Lets more people get to play with late-game summons and shit.

Peliwyr (MA game) is 127 land, 18 sea - 15.875 land provinces per player
Snerdryn (EA game) is 117 land, 19 sea - 14.625 land provinces per player

Not sure why this game feels different.  15 provinces per nation seems like a fairly standard recommendation.  Usually means there's breathing room for at least the first year.  We can certainly try for a larger map next game, though.

I think it is for 2 reasons: The previous map was awesome and had chokepoints and a lot more water, and we were all at least 1 extra hex away from each other. I have clashed accidentally with expansion armies and I am betting that was a pretty common occurrence this game. God I love that other map.

(That being said Moe you got an unlucky starting location last game)

My only problem with Peliwyr, having played it a bazillion times by now, is that some of its starting provinces are totally bogus. The absolute worst is the mountain province next to two swamps and mountains, bordered by a lake. Just... no, man. No. I think I may edit a copy of that map for my own edification so there's no more starts like that.

Another thing, if we really want bigger world-ending showdowns, would be 3-way disciple games.  I could possibly wrangle in a 9th for some 3v3v3.
