Archinerd is not playing very nice. I was just taking a nice stroll to explore down south and the next thing I know I open up my turn and one (?) of my armies is destroyed! Not cool!
I'm sorry, your request to explore down south needs to be submitted at least 24 hours in advance, in writing.

Also, it's my turn but I may not get to it tonight.

After you submitted her request, she then informed you she would have a headache then?

Archinerd asked where the turn is at. He's eager to get to his next turn and see who is trying to wipe his ass out this turn! (Not sure if he understandsthat the violator is not really bringing TP over and literally wiping his ass out...).

That enough words in your mouth for one post?

Looks like it's stuck in my drafts folder on my other computer. Fcuk. Will send (re-send-ish) tonight.

Honestly I've been doomed for so long that I'd like to resign, but it appears that doing so would literally wipe out all my cities from the map, which I don't love.

Turn 28 sent to Ralph.

PK, see you still have some fight left in you. Have to say that was a surprising round. :)

Guap, If you aren't getting wiped out at the moment, try to build a power stack with a hero and go collecting the 8 items of power (preferably starting w/ people you are already at war with rather than starting yet more wars). You might not win, but at least you have a chance. Do as many easy quests as you can before you send your hero off to get him/her leveled up a bit first.

Or just do like PK and show up with stacks unexpectedly and start plowing into your enemy's rear where their scattered units are slowing trickling forward.

So I am getting wiped at the moment, and any 'power stack' that I can put together isn't as strong as literally anyone else's forces. I'm pretty sure that the problem is that I accidentally got my original hero killed on turn 1, and after I got a replacement I didn't understand the quest / searching system, so I never got a powerful hero, and importantly never got summoning spells that appear to be integral to building a large army (since it takes a long time for cities to build powerful units). Also rats are significantly better than I would have expected.

Anyway, too late for that now, but useful for later games.

Probably the trespassing on my territory didn't help. Although I think it'd have gone differently if I didn't make peace with the blue-on-white flag guys. But yeah, the tier 1 infantry units seem pretty worthless.

Funny thing is, I thought for sure you would have seen that stack coming last turn. Was just hoping I had kept it out of your vision/map view - had to guess! The turn before I had made a mistake with that stack's movement, otherwise I would have had 6-8 more moves in me.

A) I am not doing enough scouting (relying too much on brute force).
B) You'll be unhappy in the north, but happy by your hero in regards to what I did this turn.
C) For some reason, you had a lone Pegasus that I was thinking was mine. Was rather disappointed to discover I was not going to be doing scouting with him when I got done moving everyone else.

Need to find the best of the Tier1 infantry and need to send some buffing units with them. Giant Rats with their banding rock. Dwarf Runners are also abnormally valuable (strength 1, but 4 health gives them lots of chances of that lucky shot). Throw in a couple units with Morale/Leadership (and/or Fear/Chaos/Siege to inflict some penalties on the other side), makes them go much further. Buffing is generally going to be Tier2 or higher units.

Your heroes can get usually get at least 1-2 buff/debuff abilities. Buff is generally better than debuff unless you know you are fighting a heavily buffed enemy (you can stack more positive benefits than you can negative penalties - but the penalties can stack enough to fully offset the other army's buffs). A good mix of both is best.

But yes, hopefully, this was overall, a good learning game for the newbs and a good refresher for more experienced players.

Zenn7, have you gotten a turn after May 8th?
Jesus said, "Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body."[Matt 10:28] God can totally destroy us.

Jesus also said, "For my Father's will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day.”[John 6:40] Eternal life is conditional.

His disciple John wrote, "Whoever has the Son has eternal life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have eternal life. [1 John 5:12] Eternal life is optional.

One of you needs to do it like I did, start by taking several of the other person's cities before you move to the trade deal. :)
