    On a side note, we are still in the summoning phase, so I believe Khorne can go ahead and make his next placement if he likes. Basically, this is whats gonna take us the longest since we have to rotate summoning units/cards, so if your on and your up, we don't always have to wait for map update.

    Wonderful, I get to share borders with my bloody mouthed brethren. Though, admittedly, the Empire is solid starting point for Khorne considering how central it is, allowing him to spread his bloodletters to conquer who he pleases.

    Still, I am committed in Kislev, so it is there my cult shall grow. One more Cultist to Kislev.

    The aristocracy in Tilea are rewarded for their reaction to Slaanesh's whispers. Seductresses are seen in their company, and soon thereafter neither noble nor seductress are seen much at all in public.

    Everyone's playing nice so far, heh. Who's going to be the first to provoke the ire of another god?

    EDIT: figures that while I'm writing this Khorne sends his killers into Kislev, hehe.

    I'm finding it useful to track actions not by round and then player, but by player and then round. Helps me keep everyone's motivations clear. Looks like this;
    Khorne; 6/7

    1) Blood Frenzy in Estalia (2 extra dice)
    2) cultist to The Empire

    Nurgle; 4/6

    1) cultist to Kislev (noble, pop)
    2) cultist to Kislev (noble, pop) DIAL

    Tzeentch; 4/6

    1) Temporal Stasis in Bretonnia (Magic, cost +2)
    2) cultist to Bretonnia (one more to dial)

    Slaanesh; 4/6

    1) Insideous Lies in Tilea (domination +3)
    2) cultist to Tilea

    I also appreciate the regular map updates, though I won't necessarily be waiting for an update to take my turn. It just happened that way by coincidence just now =)

    Note: Nurgle doesn't get a dial tick at the moment. He would need both those cultists to survive through the corruption phase. As things stand now, that's only a 25% chance, vs. Khorne's two battle dice.

    That definitely makes sense as a way to show what's happening, though, and a good summary.

    Yeah, I mostly just put the "DIAL" there to remind myself that, pending survival, Nurgle's gonna get a click out of that play.

    Notwithstanding that it's good for any player to get dial clicks, it could be argued that it's "better" to let Nurgle get dial advancement as opposed to Khorne?

    Nurgle is the least likely to win as a result of the dial click, so stopping his dials is lower priority, but watch his VPs. Also, his warriors make good targets for Khorne if they are in play.

    The two to watch most for dials are Slaanesh and Tzeentch, with Slaanesh being the most dangerous. As their dials move, they get to place tokens that make further clicks easier to obtain.

    Gets it down another 25% (of the gif size), but I got burned a little bit with PNG files when I first started using them; not all the browsers supported them at the time. Do they all have full PNG support built in these days?

    Even IE, last I checked. Or at least, up-to-date IE. Nobody else ever had a problem with png that I recall - mng/m-png is the deal-breaker for most now.

    I think indexed .png should be supported by the major browsers by now (except apparently IE only has partial support), but considering that the .gif images are already reasonably sized and you have the assurance that that they'll work, might as well stick with that file format.

    Remember, my bloodthirsty brother, that you must kill enemies in different territories if you wish to get multiple turn dial token. At this rate, it would be cheap to hop scoth off a cultist in the border princes to destroy Slaanesh's cultists in Tilea than it would be to invade Tzeenthc's hold on Bretonia.

    Just some friendly, self serving, advice

    Do not listen to Nurgle's pitiful deflections. Even now he makes preparations to withstand your onslaught in Kislev. Who would you rather spare from your blade? His mewling crawling lepers or my raven-haired temptresses? I can guarantee you that their company is vastly preferable, at the least.

    Note: the (M) at the start of a card indicates it has a magic symbol. Please copy that as well when you play your spells.

    For example,
    (M) Plague Aura - 0 - Each of your corruption tokens in this region adds one to your domination value here


    Also, be aware of timing. For instance, domination is checked at the start of the corruption phase, before new tokens have been added.
