    Everyone also declare where your HP is going. I'll assume starting gates.

    There will be at least two Monsters left. You can get one later. Besides, you could have built 2 Gates and planned for buying a Monster.

    Glad you didn’t because I thought we wouldn’t have to worry about a turn 2 Hastur. But look at what Saurfang gave you, a free Power source for getting a turn 2 Hastur! *blech* Haha

    What is the new player order, I'm a bit lost? Is it still a Doom phase?

    Still the Doom phase. @NotoriusBEN is up. New player order starts with mindflare77. I’ll post a map update once we’re all done giving up Doom points for Monsters, Death from Below, Dematerialisation, etc.

    I thought about it but decided aganist. The Desecrating carousel need a lot of power and time to get speed. Waiting a turn would mean at least an extra turn for the last spellbook, and istant combat is too powerful to lose it even for a turn, specially for YS that need a lot of set up to do a good fight...

    The turn order is always the same, the only changing thing is the starting point and the direction of rotation.

    Chtulu
    Sleeper
    Yellow sign
    Black goat
    Wind walker
    Tcho-Tcho
    Ancients
    Crawling Chaos

    You will always either be after Mordenthral and before me or after me and before Mordenthral. This turn we start from Wind walker and go down.

    the more i think about, the more Dimensional Shamblers play into my faction's style of play

    So, dimensional shamblers.

    Also, Dematerialize reanimated and cultist from Indian Ocean and move to... North Ameica west. Sleepers home. Not attacking, sleeper, just building a cathedral.

    Also, yellow sign isnt really hurt by any of these monsters except moon beasts. They all cost 2 or less and descration doesnt specify that it has to be you *faction* monsters summoned.

    I will be hurt by the fact that I can't get any of them. When I will choose next turn I will be happy if something is still there to choose. Anything good will be gone this turn. Again I weighted that aganist not summoning the King this turn, and still preferred to summon him and not lose momentum.

  • NotoriusBENNotoriusBEN Registered User regular
    True. But a lot of people are looking at their shiny new toys and spent whatever doom lead they had over yellow sign. Sure, there is only one winner, but yellow can just choose to not play the neutral game and still not be hurt by that.

    I cannot believe that you took Ghasts. That is devastating. I look forward to seeing the awesome strategy you have for them.

    Which of your Gate(s) are you putting them at?

    Right, they need to be placed. I'm going to say three in the North Pacific, 1 back home.

  • MordenthralMordenthral Registered User regular
    I wasn’t being sarcastic either. I wanted those Ghasts!

    No ritual
    Take Y’ha Nthlei Spellbook
    Gain an Elder Sign
    Take the Star Vampires for 2 Doom; place the free one in South Pacific

    @Daemonis is next.

    I'd nearly taken the Star Vampires... Figured that the Gnorri should be a *little* more reliable.

    True. 3 Power each is pretty steep though. I just wanted to have a Shoggoth roll 14 dice and then get the Ghasts back for 2 Power. Haha

    No ritual, I guess I would like the Shantak if this is where I buy neutral monsters?

    Put the 'free' one at my starting gate

    @jakobagger It is indeed where/when we buy neutral monsters. Where would you like to place your free Shantak?

    Yeah, I really thought about that! But in the end went for mobility since that'll help with most of my spellbook requirements.

    @mindflare77 Not a valid option. Has to have a WW glyph. So Arctic Ocean or Mountains of Madness.

    I just realized that Thousand Forms is going to be really awkward to try and use, because its supposed to only give opponents 1 minute to decide how to pay for it.
