    So the lesson I should learn is attack everyone before you starting investing all that tribute? I'll get right on that...

    No no, I have lower charisma and rank this time around. Don't worry about it.

    More players is a whole new dynamic. 2 turns in and people are already butting heads!

    So someones bought a +3 ranged, +3 melee praetor.
    And someone purchased the x3 praetor attribute artifact.

    I really, really hope they're not the same person...

    Maybe you should share the place of power? You get it during the week and jakobagger gets it at weekends?

    Despite my best efforts in terms of changing things up I am having the same issue I was last game re: streaky tribute. We'll hope it keeps up less long this time.

    Space... what is the point of it? You have no idea.

    One of you guys/gals/androgynous hellspawn accidentally replied all with their turn.

    I don't think it's possible to do anything underhanded with it though?

    If so, it sounds too much like work to figure it out.

    There's no in-game way to exploit it. Maybe if you somehow looked into the code, but that's a lot of effort to cheat at a game.

  • Jam WarriorJam Warrior Registered User regular
    If you were really interested in cheating I think I read that you can pull your enemies' stats and orders out of it. Possibly even just from the .sav file.

    The easiest way of cheating is of course to host. There's nothing at all but my honesty stopping me from re-running the turns over and over until I get a result I like.

    But really, where's the fun in any of that?

    Or if you wanted to be really sneaky, send one version to JamWarrior and a completely different version to everyone else by 'accident'...

    Is it normal for that to be my first thought? I sometimes worry my brain is too twisty for its own good.

    You'd have to blind cc everyone to the email for that to work though, otherwise JamWarrior would wonder which version is correct or everyone else would wonder why JamWarrior wasn't sent the email.

    I like that you are all in the spirit of the game and trying to figure out all the ways to cheat your way to victory. Totally hypothetically of course....

    And Jam Warrior now knows why I send him at least 2 copies of every turn!

    It's hard to pull much of a fast one on people as they always get two turns to prepare.

    Like later on if I'm trying spin multiple plates it might be difficult, but here I'm defending the one thing I've got, it's fairly easy to concentrate resources.

    Yeah, that's something I somehow am struggling to remember/understand at an intuitive level, even though I have read the rules for diplomacy.

    But it's interesting and feels thematic for arrogant noble lords who are nominally sort of on the same side.

    The nice thing about the bazaar is that there is always more cool stuff! Every time somethings purchased, something is added to replace it - first thing I do when I see somethings been bought is check the bazaar to see whats new. Of course this means you may buy something cool, only for something much better to replace it - and now you have no tribute to pay for it...

    Currently "you have no tribute to pay for it," is a constant state of affairs. The RNG does not like me.

    What happened?

  • jakobaggerjakobagger LO THY DREAD EMPIRE CHAOS IS RESTORED Registered User regular
    After a few turns of cold war in my ill-advised vendetta against Jam Warrior,where I was mostly standing around trying to gather the resources I'd need to be able to do much of anything, my starting legion died to JW's affliction rituals.

    Well the good news is it will eventually regenerate. The bad news is it will be weaker than before.

    Yes, the weakening is the worst. Also, as I remember it from last game, regeneration can take a long ass time.

    Rituals are... inconsistent. Last game I must have flung at least 10 destruction rituals at people (mainly MrBody). Exactly 2 of them hit- and that was with 4 destruction.

    So, if anyone else is interested, Jam Warrior is a coward who never showed up to single combat.

    Make of that what you will.

    When 2 destruction rituals can kill a legion, I should hope they would be that hard to land.

    Also on my hope list: that blasted elephant not showing up.

    I made 7 prestige refusing your demand. It cost 3 refusing your little fight. Simply wasn't worth my time.
