Yeah it's going to have to be magic, which is the area of the game I understand least.  Oh well!

Huw, as a general rule, I don't advance beyond my dominion. You've already knocked that player out, and sometimes a rush to press the enemy is a good idea, but I recommend retreating your forces and consolidating with temples and priests preaching at the borderlines.

U'geek, I was actually hoping to try an assassination on your pretender, but instead I assaulted your fortress. Not sure why, will have to ponder. There was something I could have done to (probably) prevent from being steamrolled by your rescue forces, too, which might have helped me attempt an assassination the next turn, but a different experiment hadn't worked out right and I felt kind of done for this game. :)

Under the circumstances, though, I feel pretty good that I even managed to besiege your home keep!  ;D

See, I'm sure I've read elsewhere that depending on how the game is playing out, dominion isn't necessarily that important.  I thought that the situation I find myself in was pretty normal and that I'm simply suffering from being a new player and not knowing how to play well.

Perhaps you're right.  Ysk has gone AI now after all...perhaps I should just help Geek take Ubercat out.

What?! It seems I might have gone AI too soon!  ::)

I did wonder why you went AI to be honest, and tried to hint that I might not be successful at sieging you.  Remember that this is my first game and I'm doubtless making severe strategic blunders with every turn!

It seems I overstretched, and now I have a worrisome gnat to swat away down south!  :o

Well it looked pretty hopeless, I can tell you that.
But this is a good lesson to never give up until its done.
I am sorry for being a quitter. :P

I wonder if all those good luck pendants will work any better for Mictlan than they did for Niefelheim? Thanks for all the phat loot, BTW.  ;D

I think I'll be going AI, chaps.  There's no way I can withstand the Mictlan juggernaut and I have no tricks up my sleeve.  Well played, Ubercat!

!!!

He's mowing down the freaking giants?!? -- this I wish I could see!


Incidentally, in a backhanded way this is exactly why I attacked you early, U'geek. (1) to try, if possible, to keep you from having several game years of uninterrupted growth and development (like Mictlan has had), because the giants scare me more in that than anyone else in our game (including Mictlan), and (2) to keep your attention fixed somewhere while an ally geared up and flankwhacked you.

The main problems with my strategy in that regard was (1) I barely had any effect (so far as I can tell) on your growth and development at all (except in a helpful way!) while crippling my own; and (2) Mictlan was never my ally. ;)
