Looks like we’ve begun. Knowing that I’m playing against intelligent human opponents instead of a mindless computer has made me suddenly nervous. I realise I have no idea what makes a good strategy in this game…
Razgon does have a very nice starting legion, but look at the Place of Power closest to Tom.
A) temple of lust, and we have 2 lust avatars. Nice real estate if you plan on winning the game.
But more importantly
B) It provides combat support. 2 of its combat stats are 8+ or something along those lines, and it’s nested within a hex of Tom’s stronghold. Any invading army is going to have to contend with that Place of Power spitting out some serious support firepower. As a Place of Power, it can’t be debuffed or destroyed. Though my avatar is ostensibly lustful, I am feeling quite a bit of envy, too. Perhaps we can all work towards making sure Tom doesn’t get the big guns locked down early.
Well, I have good news for you. Places of Power don’t contribute support, only legions do. Lust is definitely a very popular objective because of it’s -3 bonus, kinda surprising you only have 2 Archfiends lusting for the temple; the Hell to Pay PBEM has 4 Lust Archfiends.
