It's me again. Sorry guys; now that we're back in the office I'm rarely using my personal computer. I'll make sure to get to it this weekend.

I see I have drawn the ire of the black power stack. Now, while I've got his attention - everyone gang pile on him! :)

Lil Red's got the last artifact for the win. Might go in a brick house, but I shall huff and puff...

Turn 56 to Pyperkub.
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.

This game might have gone MUCH differently if my hero superstack had not died during transit to a city that got captured before he got there.

Whatever happened to the artifact(s) he had anyhow? Did they just wind up on the ground over by the first couple cities you razed when I first showed up over there?

T56 to Nick

The item(s) did not show up at the end point. I *think* lost items in that fashion go back into the pool of reward items (ruins/quests). don't hold me to it.

For me, the turning point was when your superstack hero summoned ~5 stacks and took out my primary at the time hero - I thought I was in a good position, but didn't reckon on the mass summoning in my calculations - oops. That was another major turning point and was also my own fault - I had set myself up to wipe out Red, and turned the wrong direction. Still thought I was safe, having 2 good stacks and some chaff in that city, but nope, the summoning completely wrecked me.

Given that I had lost multiple heroes in that city, and I kept getting smacked taking and then losing that city at the crossroads of the world, I resolved to just raze it ;).

does Lil Red have all 7 artifacts? Wow. I know I lost mine around T5-7 due to completely forgetting that opponent dead hero early instead of meaning pounce!, meant new hero with major allies for cheap incoming!

I don't think I found even one artifact, so while I may have built a respectable size "quarter of the map" empire, it all appears to be for naught.

Aside from losing my hero the way I did...

I should not have gone off to find Archinerd when I had almost (but not completely) finished off Pyperkub. Had I stuck around to finish Pyperkub off, I would have been in a good position to hit Nick while I was there with superarmy. Then I could have turned and focused on Dave with a consolidated, large empire and superstack.

I like these strategy games and can usually get a good start, just don't have good long term plans/focus.

Took down Zenn's flagged guy this turn. I now have twelve items on my hero. Not sure which of them are actually the eight items necessary to win the game. This could be the last turn.

YOu can tell by looking at the item lists. All the 5000gp items in the Item List are the flag items. Note, with only 7 players, it should only be 7 items. Any with a value lower are just items.

Yes. I remember. His name was Shelli. ...or maybe he had a gold cup that looked a lot like a flag. :roll:

I will have to check that 5000g item list on my next turn.

HAHAHA Dave!!! I sent everything I had after you! The results were amazingly pathetic.

I knew all those missile guys would come in handy someday! I'm still waiting for that day.
Spoiler:
Had 8-10 missile units, failed to even kill the first guy - which would have really helped as he was strength 11 w/ 3-4 hits

Superstacking appears to be a legitimate strategy, but Mr. Unbeatable spent too much time jerking off in the deep south and the northern hordes descend.
I have 5 out of 7.

WOW - it's not over! Now to get another hero and get him leveled up and ready to pick up the pieces when someone kicks your superstack's butt!

I got seriously rat attacked this last turn! I won all five battles, but those damn rats took out 7 pretty decent troops. Fortunately, I have more where that came from. 8-)

Through sure distance from anything that could possibly kill him, he's going to make it longer than that. Though I still need to go see what his spells do that make him worthwhile.
