    @Daemonis remember that there are always also my 3 doom points offered for that 3 power...

    You get your spellbook requirement checked off at a time when no one can really act against you on the power curve.

    That is unfortunate.

    Oprah Winfey my last spellbook requirement. You get a monster! you get a monster! Everyone gets their most expensive monster summoned at a gate they own!

    Take Worship Services as my 6th spellbook.

    Spend 1 power via Recriminations to flip Mindless spellbook to Extinction spellbook.

    1->0

    @daemonis for sleeper actually doing something now. Remember that i can still sack my high priest if you're thinking of snacking on anyone.

    To be honest, not sure what to do :)
    Place Formless Spawn to Central America,
    Sacrifice HP to get 2 power, spend 3 power to give everyone 1 power (get Ancient Sorcery), 2->1

    Unfortunately, I don't. Just checked, and the specific wording is Faction spellbooks. I think that it is theoretically possible for WW to never get that spellbook in a smaller game with independent spellbooks. So Recriminations means he doesn't have six faction spellbooks. /sigh.

    Wow, you guys are on the ball! I wondered what all the activity was about...

    Starspawn to South Atlantic.

    It is @Saurfang

    Update will be posted in about 2 minutes.

    No idea what saving this and forum festival is about, @NotoriusBEN ? Also, well done with Recriminations use.

    Closer to Christmas all of the regular forums disappear and are replaced by a special Holiday forum for a while (5-7 days or so?). When that happens this thread will be inaccessible, so you'd either need to put the game on hold until the forums return or have everything saved to create a temp thread in the Holiday forum to keep going over that stretch.

    Sometimes our strengths lie beneath the surface - far beneath, in some cases - but I'm sure there's more to Ketar than meets the eye!

    According to the map, it ended up in the South Pacific. So. Typo, methinks.

    On another note, anyone in this game want to take over CC in Game 2? Jdarksun seems to have had enough.

    thought about it for a while, I really did want 16 power, but I think its best to get ahead of the action economy next turn with all the giant fucking monsters running around.
    Sacrifice High Priest. 1->3
    Summon Yothan in Indian Ocean. 3->0

    @Brody for chaos.

    It is possible, but those independent spellbooks are not no-brainer choices. A faction's spellbooks are often how a particular faction gets their action/power/doom economy running.
    Recriminations is a no-brainer pick for Ancients for obvious reasons, but I did really hurt my own Turn2 engine. I shouldn't have given out so many monsters, but since I was able to do so at the end of the turn, its had negligible ramifications for Present Me. Its a Future Me problem that is mitigated somewhat because all y'all gotta deal with each other with 8+power next turn.

    Reading over the independent books, there is definite power there, but you are also definitely giving up a big aspect of your faction in the end by taking one.

    mock double post:
    also, servitors are just the DICKEST of units... hands down.
    -Can't summon monsters until they are out... so that means you spend 3 rounds summoning the bastards unless you are Black Goat, but you still gotta burn 3 power on them.
    -minus 1 attack power, so you don't want to group them but they are just a drag no matter where you put them.
    -and get this... it behooves an enemy to target them if possible, because eliminating or killing them? guess what? you gotta buy them back onto the board before you can put your own stuff down.

    only one player is at most inconvenienced by them. Yellow Sign.
    Yellow Sign can just Desecrate and oh darn, I gotta summon *somebody* to generate power for my desecration symbol.

    The more I read that card the more I hate it and I don't think it should be used in games. It will end friendships.

    I think only if you take your games too seriously.

    Servitors can still be useful. They can capture cultists, help Black Goat spread out, food for Shoggoths, slow down the leader, just a couple examples. I don’t think that giving them to someone is any more dickish than stealing one of their Gates.

    Not really anything strategic I can do here. Let’s..

    Move: Acolyte from S.P. to South America West for 1 Power.

    1 -> 0


    I’ll do Gather Power when I’m home from work, if no one else is popping a High Priest Lovecraft.

    @Brody does indeed have one power left. I'm assuming there'll be a 9v6 battle once he pops in, and that I'll be redoing this round next round.

    Just try not to choose to pain or kill your GOOs. CC gets elder signs or more power and just chain smacks

    With only 2 other pieces to absorb hits and 9 dices? Good luck with that...
