    Sorry, it’s me slowing things in these final turns as have been surprisingly busy! Had all the turns in since Saturday as I’m awful. Writing this to remind me to process tonight.

    Sorry, my delay again and then when I finally get around to it one of the files is wrong and needs re-sending.

    One token left! You may steal my Praetor but I think it's too little too late.

    Hey guys, I'm currently away from my pc, so it may be a bit before I submit my turn. Father died and I am settling affairs out of state.

    My condolences @Virgil_Leads_You, sincere though impersonal they may be, from one internet stranger to another.

    You can have an AI take your last few turns if you want to be able to put this aside. But if you want it to come back to we're happy to wait. It's your choice.

    Sure we can swap to AI. I don't wanna hold you all up, and my brain is somewhere else. It has been a lot of fun so far!

    It's been over for a while - my only chance of passing you was objective points / stealing the painting it wasn't possible to.

    I actually felt like the Sloth / Deceit build I ended up in went well this time, but with the important fact that something like 40 turns of the game I couldn't get any Darkness even with multiple tribute requests hamstringing me completely.

    It became fairly quiet at the end there. I had a pretty plum start position to be sure and definitely fell on my feet with a great starting legion. Hadn't intended to go big Destruction but nabbed the +stat artefact so went for it. Having the perk that gives you an extra tribute card to choose from definitely massively helped avoid the frustrating early turn resource droughts and let me boost myself up to four order slots (one from Destruction and one from Prophecy) by mid game.

    Then after getting lucky on a few border skirmishes I had my main objective place of power and just kind of sat back. The fear the leader has in this game is needing to respond on multiple fronts but that never really happened. Especially as I could never hold on to a Praetor! You could have all been trouncing me at single combat. By the end I'd used my high Prophecy to pick up a secondary objective (have two event cards in hand) and was holding down rituals that doubled my PoP output and gave me prestige for everyone else's diplomatic actions.

    I did get paranoid the quietness might be someone might be going for a Kingmaker victory but I had an event that revealed there was nobody doing that.

    I also had a sudden paranoia that someone would go for the excommunication by nuking Pandemonium and try to kill my poorly defended base which was why I started trying to pull together some defences at the end.

    Who kept stealing my Preators?

    Here's my starting stats:

    The first one was me. I'd be willing to bet any others were Austin, since I kept bouncing rituals off him.

    I didn't actually steal anything from anyone.

    I realized pretty quickly I had no clue how to actually win this one, so I instead flipped to just trying to random assemble means to throw chaos out there.

    Pretty much any event that impacted everyone negatively I had fired (I don't believe any that I played had specific targets, even if they only targeted one person).

    I started Charisma high to get more resources, but when I lost both armies in a single turn, I honestly didn't have a clue how to respond.

    Edit: My starting stats.

    So start / end stats above.

    "Get tribute, raise stats, play defense," like 90% worked until I forgot that Jam would be choosing the vendetta terms off that insult. I should just have eaten it.

    I think I could probably have easily fulfilled Gluttony with this build, which might've been a better plan.

    Also, I take it back - Jakobagger was the one bouncing my rituals. Austin was the one I was framing.

    At least I managed to make my score less embarassing than it looked the first many turns, while I was sitting around boosting my stats. Ended up with 4 order slots, from 4 cunning and 4 wickedness. Also yes I was the one stealing a bunch of stuff. Too bad I couldn't scrape together enough Darkness for the really fancy rituals, stealing legions seems like it'd be pretty powerful.

    Taking slothful and making all my legions move only 1 a turn was horrible and meant I couldn't justify moving much the first many turns and missed out on a bunch of Canton points.

    I was kind of dreaming of eventually vendettaing Jam Warrior and taking the Temple of Lust, but never felt quite safe enough to do it, although I had some siege related artifacts in my back pocket (which, I also had designs on the Vats of Torment and maybe the Palace of Gluttony). I got up and running way too late and wasn't devious enough to figure out a clever way to rush it. Should have single combat spammed Jam Warrior maybe, and tried to organize a united front against him in some way. I seem to recall last time we did try some shenanigans right at the very end.

    At the end I was making 7 prestige a turn in income and had the biggest territory, but again, way too late.

  • jakobaggerjakobagger LO THY DREAD EMPIRE CHAOS IS RESTORED Registered User regular
    I'd be interested in playing another round now that I sort of remember how the game works. Not necessarily right this minute but soon-ish, before I forget again. If anyone's up for it.

    OMG!



    Tweet from the Armello devs. i.e. A hugely successful lavish online board game.

    Could it be?

    Could it???

    Even if it isn't, it'll probably be pretty rad whatever it is coming from League of Geeks.

    I didn't love Armello, but I'll retain optimism until I have s reason not to!
