That might be RPing Agartha a little too far.  Get well soon!

Solops has been online a few times in other games on steam, but not for too long IIRC.  But yeah > 72h between turns is a little unusual unless something comes up.

Looks like he hasn't been on Steam in the last 1-2 days, hope everything's all right.  I went ahead and extended the turn timer just in case.
It makes no difference what men think of war, said the judge.  War endures.  As well ask men what they think of stone.  War was always here.  Before man was, war waited for him.  The ultimate trade awaiting its ultimate practitioner.  That is the way it was and will be.  That way and not some other way.

If they made nothing but WWII games, I'd be perfectly content.  Hypothetical matchups from alternate history 1980s, asymmetrical US-bashes-some-3rd world guerillas, or minor wars between Upper Bumblescum and outer Kaboomistan hold no appeal for me.

Sorry. Thought I had submitted. Will do so in a bit. My eyes are a bit messed up and I have to have a second surgery next week. I have not been able to do much gaming.

Anyone affected by the hurricanes? We may have family evacuating to stay with us.

It mostly gave Florida a miss this time.  If they're coastal it's good they're evacuating, category 4 is no joke and the storm surge won't break records but it will be dangerous.

On the Florida Gulf Coast and everything has missed us luckily!

I take it your capital was taken this turn?  I have no idea what's going on as my spy network has been obliterated.   :D

Once this game's wrapped up, I'll fire up a thread for a new game.  Maybe Late Ages this time?

I can say since Rus and probably others have eyes on it.  He was patrolling alongside PD this turn and got rainbow pretender + remaining army wiped, so it's either an empty or mostly empty cap fort under siege.  Only disconnected non-fort provinces otherwise, perfectly reasonable situation to go AI.

I'd be okay with late ages next, but this game is far from over.  I get that there's some concern I'd attempt a throne rush, but it's not realistic/not happening.  You need 9 of 12 points to win on thrones.  It's not realistic to get that many points by surprise, at least not until we're all running around with level 9 techs.
