My mistake - you had 9 giants. I noticed that most of them were pretty far north. But you had many fast boats, so you had the option of gradually bringing them south, if necessary. Or using them on C.Swords first. AFAIK the Christians only had 2 or 3 giants, with few prospects for getting more. This part is unclear to me. I don't see how you can avoid losses when attacking. In your example, how did you know there was a Thegn in Dunkeld? I suppose an RE can investigate, but then you lose the RE. @Patient - I cannot commit to another PBEM until my internet connection is back to normal. But if you are still looking for someone in 1-2 weeks, I'll check it out.
