Buggers confederated with the dwarfs while I was seiging 2 of their settlements. I was only waiting 1 or 2 turns to get a couple of siege towers to speed things up during battle. Plan is now to retreat and start chipping away at the Empire, assuming Dwarfs leave me alone.GreenGoo wrote: ↑Thu Mar 14, 2019 7:13 pm3) Instead of taking on the dwarfs directly, I've gone after one of the dwarf factions not confederated yet. They have the Black Mountains and the Vaults and then something farther south that I can't reach easily. I think there are 5 settlements in the Vaults/Black Mountains, and I've sacked and razed 3 of them with relative ease. The dwarfs faction did not get involved, so I'll seriously weaken a potential confederate target with little risk. I believe after I clear the Vaults/Black Mountains, they will have 3-4 settlements down south. I'll consider that a success.
I have no idea what Chaos looks like. There are a pile of Norsca factions that look Chaos-y, but I have yet to find the faction listed as Warriors of Chaos as seen in the diplo screen. Strength-wise, I'm #1, Dwarfs are #2, Wood Elves are #3 (so few settlements though) and Chaos is #4 now.
I have 100k in the bank and an income of 7500 or so. Hopefully it's enough when the time comes.
