Didn't you end up with loads of unrest after getting all those slaves?  Were you able to contain it to one or two provinces?

That remark just gave me an explanation for why my capitol has so much unrest in the Late Age game: I rescued about 25 blood slaves from pirates sometime in the past game year, and I have no idea what to do with them -- I can't restore them, using them would be super-evil, giving them to someone else would also be super-evil. (My pretender is roughly lawful neutral, so roleplaying him he wouldn't do that.) A recent event involved some rebels freeing a few of them from my castle, which I was perfectly happy about. But I never connected their presence to my 20 unrest. Makes sense now!

I don't think having the slaves causes unrest. I think the unrest comes from blood hunting.

Oh. Too bad, because that would explain a lot. (Jomon doesn't blood hunt. Well my character doesn't, the faction can summon some bloodhunty heromonsters.)

Gold was only critical to me in the early part of the game. After I had a large Devil force going I took my troop recruitment down to a trickle. I set taxes to zero in my heavy blood hunting provinces. You'd be surprised how many people would sell their kids in exchange for tax exempt status!

Cool, Byrdman.  I think Jason's going to start one when he's ready. :)

I'd rather not restrict the size to start with, so I'll open it up to as many players who want in. However, if a large game thus develops and some people would rather have a small Early Age game I'll set up one of those on the side, too.

But first I'll wait to see if the EA game turns out small anyway. :)

Yes, the EA game I've been talking about will be EA.  :P My theory is that we should have at least one game (or a subfamily thereof) of each age going at a time.

Yes, post it on Desura (and Shrapnel and Wargamer and maybe Matrix) once I put it up. Dom3 is a nice evangelical aid for bringing in new members. :)
