Okay my save. Olafeson (from mscellaneous game) T 70
Now i am curious to take a glance at the other saves. Too bad Undefeatable is not with us any more. The best always go first. Just remember Boromir in LOTR.
Your spoiler must be removed pls, Olafeson.
Okay, lady fippy orders and i obey.

Question: can I comment on peoples' saves after discussion is open? Can I vote? Can I do both or neither now that I've exited from playing?
I think that it would be problematic.
The knowledge of your map knowledge might cause others to assume that what you are saying is related to what you know.
Our cruel but fair hostess have to make a call, my personal opinion is something like this:
Vote - no.
Comments - theoretically possible... sort of. If you are overly careful with your words and only talk in abstract and/or general terms. But the bar has to be really high here.
I and many others have alot of time and effort invested in this project. And alot of the value is in the fact that the map is a mystery and even the slightest glimpse of knowledge could ruin the fun for some.
I know that some maps I have played when I would add archery to barbs, carefully zooming in and changing fov to not see and spoil anything I have forgotten to take of the headset and when I heard the horse sound a big chunk of fun is taken away.
I might be more sensitive than others, but others could also be even more picky... I have seen posts by Lain where he asks others to make him a save with archery added, just the eliminate the possibility for this random mishap.
As I was writing, I see that @Olafeson was out of line and @Fippy continued strict enforcement.
Forgive me please, i don t know what i am doing. I just played NC games till now in forum.
Ofcourse I forgive you! I don't even know what you did. You added some "spoiler", Fippy asked you to remove it and you did.
Oh yeah, that's definitely a concern. Don't wanna spoil anything, no matter how minor or accidental. I guess I can make a promise to comment on the saves only as how they relate to each other, and to the theoretical progression of how my playstyle usually pans out (etc. X cities on turn?? as opposed to Y) but not sure if I'll be able to catch myself giving tells in my analysis - I did once win 12 chocolate tortes in a poker game, but that was mostly luck. Guess it's up to @Fippy then.
I dun think it's that complicated, you can comment on saves and info until turn 70 @Undefeatable.
(once the chatting phase starts). Same rules for everybody, we talk about what's visible.
So yup i ofc want to give you that chance.
Voting..as Krikav wrote, nope. Only for those who submitted saves.
Since we got stones. Have included Hanging Gardens in my thread Immortal Wonderdates
It gives a nice 2 Great Engineer points too.
Is there a deadline? I hope to have my game done and uploaded tonight (North America time).
Yes, there is a deadline. We got plenty of time!
Not sure how I missed that, searched for "Fippy" ...
anyway here is my T70 save based off Olafsen's T45
I played from Mscellaneous' save, which in hindsight I probably underrated in my week 1 rankings. Good fun!
Remember new & previous players, you can all play this round no matter if you played in the first one, unless you decided that you move further than T70 intentionally.
deadline = Saturday.
