    Any clue on it breaking game ?
    because I think having both version at once would be tricky

    No idea. Having both versions at once requires installing it to new folder (for example, Orbis 1c, every player must have it in same folder as modfolder is checked when loading game) but yes, it's a bit tricky.

    I've seen 1.0c mentioned for some time now. Any idea when it is coming?

    Don't know, but Ahwaric returned today and said he's working on it. Shouldn't be too long if it's just a patch without new things added.

    The thing about hell terrain is if you can't get rid of it, it periodically pops up demons. Or that seems to be what was happening in my game as I was wiping out the AV founder and then Hyborem. The AC never got higher than 20, but there was plenty of hell terrain.

    I enjoy hell terrain, it's fun and flavorful mechanic.

    Unless someone else wants them, I would like to take Elohim with Einion Logos as the leader.

    Cool. I never really played them but i think they aren't that much of a "mainstream" civ. I like that.

    I like the idea of playing "something different".
    I often play random, so I'm not sure of who is "mainstream" and who is not.

    Is there a civ that is less chosen that the others ? I might go for it.
    I was thinking Kuriotates or Doviello. Never played any of those.

    Kuriokate is especially different. I now consider going for them.
    (Or is it a very common choice ?)

    I've always viewed Elohim as a core civ and liked to play them.

    1/ Deon : did you choose a civ ?
    2/ Let's go for a large map. Default number of AI to be applied.
    3/ I'd rather not wait for patch c. I fear it will break things. We might choose to all add no save breaking corections, though.
    4/ final five disabled (especially on large map)

    I'd like to start this game this week.

    I will play Arthurus of Khazad again. Urbi is too slow and I want to feel the dwarves :).

    Game started. Hope all settings are ok.

    I set no tech trading.

    my Sidar position is not that good. Did not build my capital yet, and going for a suboptimal placement.

    I rarely find a better start, with the setup we're using, than 2 resources and a river. But I count that as a good thing for game play.

    I was really confused and then I realized the "baker" that you get for CotD is really a beaker. The strange thing is, if you look at the pictures in the game, it's really a flask. Probably an Erlenmeyer flask. Flasks and beakers are very different shape. Beakers sides go straight up. Don't know how it ever got to be called a beaker anyway. </Comments from Peanut Gallery>

    Sorry wrong thread and I don't know how to delete it.

    Now the game asks me for OldLions password. Somehow this game starting is really similar to the 'Launched in Orbis' one :)
