Turn's up. I'm regretting not giving my prophet a clever name now that I see that OnlyAfro is leading the forces of Niefelheim.

I had to check the turn again, but now I get it after saying it out loud. Moe may have the most legit prophet name.

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).

You guys are making me want to join the next game.

Is there a nation with decidedly cute units?  :P

Depends on what Age you have a nation in, but there's these guys!

That's... cute enough, I guess!

Though a modded nation populated by stuffed animals would be better.

In NationGen you can sometimes get nations of Hoburg (gnomes).  You can even get like Hoburg Goat Cavalry units.

I managed to gen a nation of ettin-ridding Hoburgs, once.  Unfortunately, I lost the seed that made them.

I think Inks stayed logged in for too long.
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.

That is indeed the issue.  Servers are back now.  Looks like EA turn is up too.

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.

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