The Old God has left the world and the pretenders are awakening and coming out from hiding. You start the game by designing one of the pretender gods that will compete for true ascension to godhood. The type of god can range from a magically powerful arch mage to an ancient kraken or a mystic monolith that people pray to. Your pretender controls one of over sixty different nations and with the help of that nation he will spread his word and battle the other pretenders. Dominions 3 is a turn based strategy game. You can play single- or multiplayer (1 - 23 players) with simultaneous turns. There are more than 1500 different units, 600 spells and 300 magic items in the game. The game also features a medieval musical score by Erik Ask Uppmark and Anna Rynefors, both awarded the title of Musicians of the Realm by the Swedish Zornmärkeskommiten. Dominions 3 is a highly detailed game and a 300 page pdf manual is included in the download.

There you have all the mods you "installed", aka copy pasted to your mod directory.
If you press it an (enable) will appear, that will indicate its an active mod. A small banner should appear when you to go the main menu as well, but not all mods have banners.

after a few test games with the LA pangea tree huggers I figured that the micro management (armies of carrion critters) is not that smaller compared to the one required by blood hunting, besides strong sacred can help the early game for a noob ;P

long story short I'd like to take LA Mictlan.

Ogaburan and Alistair - I think you can pick nations now.
I trust that you wont pick the most demonic evil advanced player combo and challenge yourselves with something new/unfamiliar.

Btw Alastair thx for the miniguide and link (btw I'm open to any suggestion)

I was just informed I will be traveling between the 29th and the 14th of next month... (2 weeks form this weekend), so im no longer sure I should join.
Tho im traveling trough civilized countries that should have internet access.

I managed to make it into a business & pleasure kind of trip, so I just hope I will have enough time for my existing games...

I doubt you guys want to wait 2 more weeks for me, so I will probbaly join if someone drops out or goes awol.
Sorry for wasting your time.

We're going to go reallly different- I'm going to grab Jomon.

@Oga - A shame, I will be Pm'ing you if we need a sub.
Everybody else:
I am making a brief recruiting drive and aim to start the game up saturday or sunday.
Do you know if it is allowed to make a recruiting thread or whether I should just update the topic of the original (this) thread.

Jun 27 2013, 9:03am Anchor

Just update the topic of this thread.

That said, we've got 9 players, which is frankly above the range you were looking for.

Jun 27 2013, 2:46pm Anchor

I will join if you want another player.

Jun 28 2013, 4:35am Anchor

You should just update the Opening Post (OP), It's simpler.


I dislike emotes, so will generally use things like =) rather than :)

I am unsure if ISOD is still in, but with Mongler I think we are starting now.
I will create the game LearnByFail on Llamaserver and while I suspect I will make a mess of the technical side of things, then we should be up and running by tomorrow. Please create/upload pretenders.
Mongler: please pick your LA nation. Ermor and Rlyeh are banned.

Game is up now. LearnByFail. 9 players max.

Jun 28 2013, 7:45am Anchor

by the way, how long have we decided to make turns?

Edited by: Nerdzul

Jun 28 2013, 12:22pm Anchor

I'll take LA Arco.

Jun 29 2013, 1:52am Anchor

we are starting with 28 hours, then increasing that as needed.

Jun 29 2013, 6:39am Anchor

Ok, pretender sent, I'll be offline most of the saturday and sunday (got a party out of town), see you in a couple of days

Jun 29 2013, 8:33am Anchor

Pretender sent.

Jun 29 2013, 8:41am Anchor

I have updated the thread to reflect who have joined the game.
At the moment 3 people are pending. Will check in later today and then tomorrow.

Jun 29 2013, 8:51am Anchor

I'll upload my pretender sometime during this weekend.

Jun 29 2013, 11:47am Anchor

...Uhm what? I thought I was supposed to be in the game too (I was the 3rd player to sign up). Gustavberner, did you miscalculate player slots or what?

Anyway, don't bother remaking just for me. Have fun everyone.

Jun 29 2013, 1:11pm Anchor

Someone stole your place tewey?

If so, I support a restart.

Don't know about stealing. The game has only 9 slots but the list of registered players has 10 names so I guess that's why.

Jun 29 2013, 1:37pm Anchor

Its my bad. I forgot to edit the max number of players and turn off autostart.

I have unstarted the game so you can join now. Sorry about the confusion. I thought I had turned off the autostart feature.

Jun 29 2013, 1:57pm Anchor

Ok thanks. Can't do my pretender right now so I will send it tomorrow.

Jun 29 2013, 2:35pm Anchor

ok- the game should start as soon as TeWey is in. I am so sorry for the confusion. I take noob-game quite literal :)
