Loaf after death

As Samnium I fell victim to the Romans. All territories gone, I float over the map like a ghost. Unlike a ghost I am steadily accruing money, men and metal against the possibility of my return.

Where are all these goodies coming from?

Re: I've lost 11 games.

Can't seem to get any luck :( have lost 11 games. Are you playing random pickup games? I look at the list of games available a lot of times and a good portion of them are obviously bait games where the game creator has set up unequal armies with them having the far superior army. Those are the ones...

Re: IDS_RUL2_Peisistratos

did you manage to figure out what the message was about? It seems the ruler name has been used instead of the message sentence here. Or perhaps you have the turn before the event? I think he just died. Nice phrase for public health announcements during the Pandemic. 'Sadly 10000 people had format i...

Re: Rising Falcon DLC coming May 21

According to Sir Richard Burton, the symbol on the Persian flag (Achaemenid dynasty) is a shahbaz, a mythical bird close to the falcon. Now, saying that 'Rising shahbaz DLC' is incoming would have been a bit more obscure to players :lol: However Liz Taylor said only that it was 'The sweetest little...

Re: Losing your General

King Pyrrhus fell to a roof-tile thrown by an angry housewife in a relatively minor skirmish. To avoid losing your generals so easily go to settings and turn off the Angry Housewife option.

Re: Mathematicians, playing Empires often makes me tired.

Frankly I set up provinces as quickly as possible and automate them. I ignore trade because I'm not an accountant (didn't have the charisma). I just balance money men and metal. It doesn't seem to make much difference to success or failure in growing a successful empire and I have a blast. Doubtless...

Re: Diplomacy feedback

I too find it impossible to negotiate peace with soundly defeated rivals, other than by returning all conquests. I get the impression that the more defeats an enemy suffers the worse its attitude to the victor gets. Even where the base chance of accepting peace is 100% any attempt to impose conditio...

Re: Diplomacy New key Features - Manual Addenda

Well, this exceeded my already high expectations of what the developers would come up with. Congratulations all round for the ambition and let's hope it works out in practice, especially in dealing with AI nations.

This is a massive step forward for an already intensely absorbing game.

Re: Any FoGE Development News?

I would like to see the option to transfer regions or provinces to another nation, perhaps as part of a wider deal.

It would also be interesting to have trade options beyond setting up buildings and hoping the right goods arrive

Re: Leaving MP game

On a similar issue, I have a game which started with 3 players. The other 2 stopped playing. I therefore also stopped. The game remains in my folder even though the date for completion of moves was 29th August.
