more RAM will help, also get win7 64-bit that will make a world of difference. my laptop sucks compared to yours, and I don't have MAF issues

let's skip a day then, and finish this game ASAP


my proposal for the next game:

mind if we keep the mapscript? sorry esvath but I'm OCD when it comes to mapscripts

Normal Size, 6 civs ( 2 good, 2 neutral, 2 evil ) , Emperor difficulty ( we're doing just fine on Monarch, a bit of added challenge wouldn't hurt imho )


some settings we might consider to spice up the game:

Barbarian World
End of Winter
Last Days
Arcana Unleashed
Pirate Invasion
Permanent Alliances
No Map Trading



Any ideas about civs and leaders?

We could go with Averax the Cambion, raise AC like crazy while the horsemen ignore you thanx to Barbarian trait

I suggest pop Revelry, and while in 24 turn of golden age, produce as many as military units we can. Then, move all of them into Ethne's cities (all of the cities!) and attack at the same time. Don't give her the chance to cast Sanctuary, otherwise we'll have to wait for another 30 turns

Unless the AI has changed in that regard the Elohim wont use their worldspell unless they are at war with more than one civ.

Furthermore we cannot make that many more units due to the blasted unit cap.

That would work if we adopt the cult of esus... could be fun

Yep, you are right. It is hardcoded in python.

Train archers, garrison them in cities (4 archers in each), then mobilize all Hunters, Horsemen etc to front line. We can get several military support point that way.

Then battle tactics : Greater Fireballs, then suicide every lv 1 units, or units with bad promotions from mutation. Northern cities get ready to train replacement units so we can keep the assault endlessly. Remember, tsunamis hurt our units too, so beware when using them!

Is this crashing supposed to be mostly a RAM Issue?

I just had an idea, maybe you could try gamebooster.
It does optimize computer for games and frees ram.

very well, I've played a war preparation set so you guys can have fun beating on the Elohim


Beeri accepts to gift us marble, and we trade tea for silver which we have in abundance. also we buy his maps for 4 gold which does reveal some territory


we build some freaks and mimics in preparation for our war...


Perpentach's personality changes, he becomes charismatic and raiders. the war starts soon...









Look at Coombe View's gold specialization, nice our great merchant will be a great boon here...









And we get two taskmasters from the undercouncil... sweet










Our elite hunter can get a class promotion, I choose gladiator: 50% chance per turn to gain battle stance ( +1 str, first strike immune, removed after combat )











I build a Halls of Mirrors in Garryvoe, as that city is likely to see some figthing soon... might be good to build those on the border with the Bannors as well



...especially after a random event causes tension between our civilizations












A great bard sparks a golden age throughout our kingdom












in the meanwhile, Loki causes some mischief in a Bannor city












I equip some troops, offensive horseman gets broadsword and boots of escaping



We declare war and start pillaging...















suggestions for the next player: adopt slavery so we can enslave the elohim troops

for techs we need courtesans, harlequins and taskmasters!
