Turn 27:


Well nothing too crazy happened at least. To make matters even better I almost staled this turn too due to going out to a bar that night instead of being diligent about playing a pixel game. I know, priorities in the wrong order.

I lost a province to a raider and gained back one, nothing too crazy here.



I also notice that someone else is fighting Boing:



This brings me some hope at least.

And now I have a huge decision to make. I have three master smiths that are able to caste Earthquake which should do a lot of damage to whatever I hit them with, although I might lose them as well due to collateral damage. If I use them itíll be a one hit wonder - I wonít be able to easily recover from losing that many earth gems in both the boots and the gems on them. I think about this for about 20 minutes, conferring with Spooky (who is also fighting against Burlap), before deciding to pull back my casters to give them levitation rings and hopefully have them survive their own doomspells. Eventaully I fixiate on this little item:



I create three of the suckers using some of my magister arcane, move my main army to the northeast, and end my turn with minutes to spare.



Literal minutes.

End Turn.

I gravitated towards the Greens, eventually even joining the party itself.

The Linke is a party I grudgingly accept exists, but I've learned enough about DDR-history I can't bring myself to trust a party that was once the SED, a party leading the corrupt state apparatus ...

More importantly, which game is he streaming? I'm fairly sure it can't be dom4, that would be insane. Making short battle videos is one thing, but streaming Dominions 4 in all it's glory can't possibly have a positive outcome

To go quickly is foolish. To go slowly is prudent. Not to go; that is wisdom.

Much better than Dom4. You can take breaks each 10 minutes when a random goblin kills your cap.

Turn 28:



More raiding happened this turn - Morlockiaís Hurin Priests are both annoying and effective. Plus theyíre great at raising undead. Why didnít I make something with them instead of this horrible neighbour of mine?

Most of my moves this turn are moving around to deal with various raiding locations Iíve lost.



Iím also moving my troops over to engage those lost provinces. Iím also moving up a force to take his throne:




I donít know if theyíll be enough.

Iíve equipped my 3 earth quake mages with rings of levitation, and also moved them adjacent to the throne fort.



Iíve been busy talking to as many people as I can about whats going on - mostly thespo and Rotekian. Weíll see how this turn goes - Burlap could hit me pretty hard if he catches out my troops.

After a few hours I decide to try out using a spell - Call of Winds - to take out the lone Hurin Priest.



This also means Iím going to alter my movements a bit - the flying raiders in my west are likely going to head back, and Iíd love to catch them on the way.



Lets see if this works. Iím still going to try to hit that throne, and hopefully not lose my main army.

End Turn!

I do not know, the mummy versions are pretty amazing at summoning undead, they might just camp in fortresses spamming armies, forever, fond memories of playing pre nerf Nazca and literally making GBS threads out about two thousand of their ethereal sacred fliers with F9W9 blesses over the course of a game even if they were all incinerated by Boing over the course of ridiculously huge battles.

Hi anyone still reading this thread who

and

B) would like to play dominions four the thrones of ascension

should post in this thread to that effect. i will then use a sophisticated method involving a d6 to determine who wins the steam key.
