    Nah I took the password off, It's easier that way since people are always being kicked to make room for others (max 16 slots in hamachi channels) so they can rejoin any time.

    House Harkonnen, huh - you sure they wouldn't have been better Balseraphs? Wish I could have taken up the mantle of the Malakim Atreides to oppose you...sounds like fun, Tasunke killing people as usual. I actually don't think I can make a game until Sunday so whoever's there on that day/need people for continuation or whatever works for me.

    An AAR of today's game, it's rather long sorry :D

    As the Kuriotates we began the age of rebirth on a heavily forested grassland peninsula, we settled the city of Kwythellar on a hill and send scouts to explore the rest of erebus, the scouts head south and find, apart from a lizardman lair an unoccupied land, satisfied and nowhere else to explore this dead end the scouts head back to kwthellar to find the capital has expanded and grown quickly and with the news of the land to the south, The people of Kwthelar prepare settlers to found a new city.

    Soon we meet the other surviving nations of Erebus to our north were the Atreides, a surviving remnant of the bannor empire their leader a Duke Atriede was, upon first impressions a lunatic who babbled about the "spices" and how it gave them religious visions, our eastern (and closer neighburs) the orcs of the Clan of Embers were different from the other orc savages that rampaged through our lands in that they spoke before clubbing, a remarkable quality among their race, to the south of the orcs came refugees to our capital city of Kywthellar they told us blood curdling tales of their oppressive leaders and when the leader himself find out their people had fled to my lands he introduced himself as Nosferatu of the Calabim, the men he sent were strangely pale as were the refugees that fled their evil land. He told us not to heed the words of the refugees as they were considered mad, not entirely trusting of this Nosferatu we gave the refugess housing in the city so they could escape their cruel past, the last leader we never met but only heard tales of, he was Markonian Logos a respected wise man and leader of the elohim.

    Our scouts continued to explore the land in hope of finding another city to settle, to the north east of kwythellar the scouts found Dragon Bones and the land looked suitable to build a city upon, there were plains which the scouts dubbed "the centauric plains" as from which much of our Centaur armies came from later however the Clan of Embers had the same idea in mind as us and settled a citty just east of where we intended to settle, they claimed their city was "renegade hill" rather than still build a city close to this renegades hill I thought it prudent to build somewhere else and so bade the settlers to found Avelorn on the coast, the orcs claimed the dragon bones but I also claimed much land through use of inspiring Legends among my people, and thus claimed the centauric plains.

    Our city in the south was cut off from the capital for some time and had to endure lizardmen attacks time and time again, the cities in the north fared little better with barbarian goblins, orcs and lizardmen rampaging through the lands with no end in sight, I asked the leader of the clan of embers a so called Lghaard for permission to enter their land and destroy these breeding nests of the lizardmen, the orc found this highly amusing and predictably, refused. The kurios had no other choice than to adapt a more aggressive stance and build a larger military to defend their homes. The green horde kept coming and all work on the land was halted as workers were slain without mercy but our first victory against the orcs came soon as warriors from the southern city of Naggarond managed to slay the lizardfolk within one of their ruins, rather than explore the murky breeding ground of the cold blooded lizardmen the warriors opted for holding it instead and did so for many years. With the lizard threat to the south pacified the workers hiding in the citys up north evaded the greenskin horde and began working the land of Naggarond instead.

    But it seemed one victory was one victory too many, possibly hearing about our success the feared orc chieftain Orthus personnely entered our lands with a whole new horde of goblins and orcs (and the hated lizardmen) the poorly defended city of Avelorn rushed to build a sizeable force of warriors from which to repel this threat, but the green horde ignored the city and headed straight for kywellar, with newly built archers the capital city held off the threat with ease but Orthus did not seem to want to attack with his brothers instead he roamed the countryside scaring workers back into hiding, strangely he did not attempt to pillage anything and wandered from village to village as if lost, while he did this I ordered more soldiers built so that they could ambush and kill him once and for all, eventually the warriors and archers overwhelmed the beast and killed him in a grassland southeast south of the capital the only surviving archers took his axe and I named them Royal Guard for their bravery and courage (25 xp woot!), with orthus gone the rest of the horde seemed to lose heart and only a few lizardmen remained to attack us.

    The warlord lghaard upon hearing of Orthus's death demanded to see his grave site and sent fearesome wolf riders to our borders, to avoid a war with the clan I forced my reserachers to switch from sanitation to cartography so that the orcs could visit the battlesite at peace I decided to take precautions however and asked if I could count on aid from the fanatical Atreides if the orcs decided to war they rambled on about upholding the "faith" at any cost and agreed to help me, pleased I began trade negotiations with them that benefited our nations for many years. Negotiations with the other nations didnt go so well, the orcs demanded open borders and threatened me to never enter their land and while I traded maps with the elusive calabim they bgean spreading rumours about me afterward, they attempted to claim I was corrupt and that I was tricking the orcs with the matter of Orthus gravesite, the orc's paid no heed to the "Pales" however and I gladly showed them site of Orhus death, they seemed solemn upon reaching it and I explained Orthus had a mighty warriors death, hoping the orcs would be pacified was in vain however as I suspected they really wanted to measure my strength and to take orthus's mighty axe back.

    My fears were found true and upon finding my esteemed Royal Guard, the warlord Lghaard demanded I give the axe to him, I explained that the axe was a relic of my people and gave them strength but in order to avoid war I promised to trade something in exchange of theirs for it, the orc Lghaard tries intimidation by saying he'll trade the lives of everyone in Avelorn for the axe.

    I promptly refused to give in to his demands and order the cities to build up their defences in case of invasion, luckily the invasion never came. I can only suspect the warlord Lghaard was usurped by another tribal leader (lgaard had to leave the game at this point for RL reasons) the religion of the "spices" as it turned out was the Order and my people swiftly embraced it, seeing our chances with the orcs in dissaray with their change of leadership the Atreides declare war on the Clan and I order my people to do the same, the mysterious Elohim to the far east were reported to be following the goddess kilmorph now and the pale calabim to my south east were godless still. The so called Nosferatu demanded a triple meeting of the empires of Kuriotates, Atreides, and Calabim to discus territorial arragments of the Clan of embers lands I informed him I had no inention of keeping the land but only wanted to destroy the breeding grounds of the greenskins.

    To aid the Atreides war I sent a catapult defended by a swordsmen, However there was no source of metal from which to produce quality weapons and my soldiers were poorly equipped, fortunetly there was no end of Cenaturs willing to charge into the fray and I began training them as quickly as possible, in the meantime the bannor walked through the Clans armies with ease taking city after city from them, wanting to help or for some ulterior motive the elohim wise man Markonian Logos declared war on the Clan also but it seemed at a heavy price as the elohim war general Bambur was killed during a battle, not to be deterred by this the elohim continued their war even as the Calabim forces advanced upon them, to avoid destruction at the hands of the calabim, Markonian initiated an ancient ritual of Sanctuary to keep their enemies at bay, infuriated at this the calabim leader Nosferatu withdrew.

    With my minor Centuar strike force I orderd them to escort a catapult into clan lands to aid the Atreides in taking Braduk the Burning, the so called renegade hill had fallen to Atreide fanatics and they blessed my force with a holy fury as they passed through, on the way to Braduk the force found one of the ruins of the lizardmen that still plagued my nation I ordered them explore it and to clear it out once and for all, in the depths of the ruin my centaurs found ancient dwarves fighting lizardmen it seemed as if these were some of the last dwarves alive in the age of rebirth although we had heard tales of some in the Elohim lands, we agreed to help the dwarves kill the lizardmen and then we led them to the surface, either gone mad from being underground for so long or going mad at seeing daylight they proceeded to pillage the clan lands before finally being destroyed by Clan wolf riders.

    My small army proceeded to Braduk without further incident and found the city still under siege although the Atreides employed no siege weapons in their tactics my catapult was a welcome addition, standing guard over the city was a single mighty ogre, but blessed with holy fury two of my centuars charged the beast the first escaped befoing being destroyed but the second charge dealt the Ogre a mortal wound, furious the beast slew the remaining centuars but was when finished off by an Atreide Valin Phaneul.

    My swordsmen took the city and offered it in exchange for the "renegade hill" the honourable Duke Atreide accepted and also traded with us the bronze metal we needed in exchange for kuriotate fine clothes. The city was not kept ours for long however as the calabim Nosferatu leader finally reared his ugly head.

    He came from the shadowy lands to the south of Renegade Hill with an army of soul drinking monsters and demanded the city with no choice I had to aqcuise to his demand and handed the city over to it's fate. Knowing that my army would be cut off when the calabim expanded their borders I forced the wounded centaurs to sprint back to my territory, the swordsmen were left behind with the catapult to hold the city of Braduk the Burning with the Atreides.

    The once wise leader of the Elohim, Markonian Logos decided to war once more with the calabim and forced a venerable arch mage Corlindale into military service, the Arch Mage was swiflty silenced by the calabim and the rest of the elohims army with him, the Elohim leader then proclaimed senile by the other leaders of erebus claimed he saw the light and that the long dead Bambur was talking to him, I questioned why a peaceful monk would go to war twice and came up with a conclusion, Markonian claimed he was doing Kilmorphs work but he simply wanted more land to fuel his empire and in his old age had become the pawn of Mammon, god of greed.

    With my own nation converted to the Empyrean I offered to send an emmissary of Lugus to reveal the manipulative webs around him but long into his madness he continued to babble about the light now he was having tea with corlindale, presumably another form mammon had taken to manipulate the once wise man. Before I could act the world was thrown into another war with the Atreides declaring war on the vampiric Calabim, the hero Valin Phaneul was slain then and the morale of all the Atreides was sapped away, I fear the vampiric servants of Aeron have won this day with nothing to hold them back the peaceful Kuriotates will soon fall and the leader of the elohim should be in an asylum.


    Well thats it the game ended there when Valin was killed.

    I regret so much I had to leave. With a view of extensive enlistments of the ogre troops to the army of Lghaarrd (coming in several turns), iron deposits claimed, really sound economy (gold, silk, wine, dragon bones) and warrens in every city, The Clan could have become a killing machine. Most of the cities were hill based, with citywalls etc., siege machines, fast wolfriders, archers... well... this game was very fortunate for the orcs.

    Seems it turned to a quite nice politics/war clash.
    Is there any point in continuation? Has at least a single orc survived?

    IIRC rantine should still be around wandering my lands :D, twas a nice game would have been totally different tough if u were able to continue with the orcs, at the time u left i was just getting vampires and building up my troops but i guess u would have crushed me easily with 10 strenght ogres. i dont think i ll be sticking around tonight, tomorrow i might :)

    Oh, I didnt mean to crush you FFG. Vampires are somewhat scary to orcs. And Kurios had so many villages/towns to be plundered. ;) I expect Paul Atreides to have even more towns (Crusade strategy). Money for maintenance of numerous troops is a key issue, when playing Clan.

    I counted on you however to tie Elohim with a war. Third front could be serious inconvenience (I assume I would have war with Bannor-Kurios alliance, sooner or later). I wonder if there were any chances to get the Orthus' Axe with intimidations. :)

    I believe we don't patch yet, right? I mean, there're a lot of people like me or Mimic who wait for FF compatibility, and I want to play with all of you.

    That's not stopping you from patching, you can always create a separate installation of BTS. You're just lazy :p

    And so am I. Don't patch yet.

    The orcs had 3 cities to the north. Im thinkin of if we continue that game to have an earlier save, as I lost all my confessors b/c it was showing Valin's odds apparantly. However the faith of the Spice was still strong ... and I could now build crusaders ... So I dont mind giving some territory back to the orcs in order to start from an earlier save where my high level confessors were still alive. all 6 of them lost for no gains.... I dont realise how that happend at all

    it said 99%victory across a river ... my only theory is that it was Valin's odds but the confessors were the ones throwing themselves to sure death

    Do you use stack attack? Never do it :).

    Also, sorry for disconnecting. It was my internet service provider fault, I've lost my internet for a few hours.

    well, I had them all selected for movement, but I wasnt using stack attack. My only thought is that the strongest was Valin with 99%, but when I moved them all, it selected a "non hero" unit for attacking. Either way I'd say it was just some bug, but I would refrain from trusting the calculator over rivers from now on. Even if its just a rare hero related bug, only available in simul turns.

    OK, we tried 41b game. Adaptive trait doesn't work, insane trait doesn't work, AI beeline weird techs without researching economic ones and Cassiel has hidden agnostic trait inbuilt (so it's not grigori civ. trait). I am afraid of other bugs :).

    All agnostic leaders have a -100 weight on all religions. Makes them unable to adopt them... Agnostic only stops them from researching the techs I believe.
