aow pbem game

Ok so there is an ongoing AoW3 AoW3 pbem game.

I’ve been asked to make a dedicated thread.

So here it is.

With the following players:

myself,
lego warrior
mysterio
valambrian
thraeg

We should all be on turn 2 now.

So, I was thinking, to justify the existence of the thread, we should post a little here for each turn

Nothing major or that gives away vital Intel.

For example:

turn one- picked up scout guys, gold, mana, found another city within 2 turns travel. Will capture that soon. Inspected army, full of pikemen, 1 ranged unit, no tier 3 units, 1 cavalry. Not happy!!!

Turn 2 - more exploring, lamenting my position, which has wide open avenues of approach. No mountains, no bodies of water, few forests.

Also found a scoundrels den, and executed them.

I will have to see what my next turn brings.

I see I’ve already lost. (cries)

Turn 1

How does one play this game, again? Are any of these mountains volcanoes? No, wait–I’m thinking of Civ VI.

I guess I’ll move my starting stack SE and explore this mana node. Oh, look–there’s a battlefield debuff I’d forgotten about. There goes one of my starting units.

“You wanna join my empire, hero? Sure. Now go forth and earn me a fortune!”

“By myself…?”

“Go. Earn. Me. A. Fortune.”

Turn 2

Damn, this swamp is really slowing me down. I’ll engage you dudes, who are positioned right next to me, on my next turn. Fear me!

“Where’s my fortune, hero?”

“Workin’ on it! Can I get some help?”

“Workin’ on it!”

lol you can partially split your stack to engage a unit adjacent even if your stack as a whole has run out of movement!

Doh! Forgot about that.

By the way, does everyone know that you set up this thread @BloodyBattleBrain?

I’m just waiting on @Thraeg so that I can get to my turn.

I think everyone knows about the thread now.

I’m waiting for delivery of a computer before I can play my turn.

I’ve recieved my turn, I’m not ignoring it.

Dopwnloading AoW3 now, because I’ve been preoccupied with Planetfall.

It will be done by tonight no matter what happens!

EDIT: turn played, sent to Mysterio.

Nothing much happened. I discovered a village, which I shall conquer soon.

Thought about exploring on some ruins for some xp and loot, decided against it as I have few, and lower tier, units, so need to build myself up at least a little bit.

Received turn, played, sent.

Some action this turn, cleared a gold mine, much needed cash injection.
Also received a quest, which will pretty much determine my path of expansion.

Waiting for some key research to complete soon, very glad this showed up early.

Man, I don’t have a clue if I am doing well or not in this game.

too early to tell!

Keeping things moving. Back to you @BloodyBattleBrain.

A hound I liberated from a farm ran away from home. If you spot him, could you please return him to me? That would be swell!

Turns are moving fast. Good to see.

edit: progress in research and city construction, mine cleared, forces consolidated, have a game plan for the next few turns, urgently wanting a particular research to show up and it isn’t, realising my research capacity is low!!!

Turn sent

Turn completed. Back to you sir!
