Posts to the game:

I had a pretty good start. I wa sable to grab a bard and a troll from some ancient ruins. I stumbled on Eskilid with my second group while clearing. Shame on me for not scouting ahead. It lead to a very close battle. Eskild white witch, leader, two raiders, vs my troll, arch druid, boar rider, bard, and raider. The boar rider, raider, and bard were all very hurt. For some reason the AI did not cast chain lightning which would have played well against the hurt troops. I received a good break on a crit on a charge with my rider to his leader. The troll hit him on the other side leaving him severely injured. On his turn he killed my raider, rider, and bard, but he missed on his stun to the troll. So the troll took his leader the next turn. All was going well, then the witch froze the troll. I lost everything but the troll. After getting a sense of his direction and seeing his leader go to the void I moved straight in. He had a very solid defense, had built 4 witches to add to his clearing troops. The extra troops I got from converts and they solid experience they had proved to be the difference. Feeling the pressure Eskilid decided to attack rather then hide behind walls, after that loss, I was able to take his throne.

No my leader was working towards the other side of the map. I think this may have been a mistake. I had about 10 units including my leader and arch druid. It was early so I though I had time to split and cover more ground. If they stayed together I felt there wouldn't be enough experience. I had been lucky early and found a mercenary camp with two gold mines next to it, I had quickly cleared it and settled it. So I had enough gold to support continued converting and a slower buildup, or so I thought. I took the Archdruid, bard swordsman, dwarf pikeman, and I think another t1 I think. Cleared an ancient ruin it had two trolls a spider and a warg. I triggered combat with a roots on the far left troll. movement failed. They came in. Had my whole team to the right, troll spider hit that side to the open swordsman/t1. Failed web, lots of damage. Bard charmed the troll, druid befriended the spider. The the other troll hit killing the spider. The rest was easy. With those I  have the blockers, if the charm fails I drain the spider, the troll kills stuff, the bard and druid run everything else dies. Then the bard and druid rejoin the pack.

My mistake was when I moved on this site I saw the frozen terrain. It was there I should have slowed down casted my scout and looked ahead. I moved onto a tough mercenary camp, there I gained the board rider but I lost atleast two units. I had forgot about the 40 percent fire weakness. The site had a dwarf forge priest and firstborn. I realized it on the a one shot from the priest, So I casted divine protection. It saved the troll and I won the fight, but it was still costly. Then after I finished the fight I realized I could not cast the scout.

I really want to see the sorcerer work. Eskilid has given me hope that it can work. I know I can get stun by 18, Eskilid had produced 4 witches out by 15. Had another that got lost. It makes me think it could work if you could get the time. Still though it feels like it will always be behind the convert/charm/friend classes. Could be fun anyways, maybe in FFA? Duel seems tough. Eskilid how close was stun?

Not much to add besides what cbower has said, however the game was over too quickly. I felt I had a pretty good start with a second city settled on turn 4 (as I remember) due to great production capacity at my starting spot. Did quite good as well in the clearing game and stumbled upon the beasty scouts of cbower right after. My wisp scouting detected his secondary hero on the way towards the "to be destroyed due to being shadowborn" frostling neighbors located SE of my capitol. I felt had to split forces in order to protect the future targets of my wrath from  cbowers approach, at that time his forced looked quite easy to overcome, but after crossing the river bridge and mountain range there was suddenly a troll in his army as well, besides his bard, which together with the converting hero could not be left alone at that time. I took a long shot battle to stop that snowball, which succeeded quite good even though my leader went to the void. Next, however, an avalanche (a bit exaggerated) of forces arrived and I felt I had to try out an urealistic battle as my last chance.

Well played.

Well done! So you retreated your leader before fighting Eskild with your troll & co?

It will be a tough match against gab!

A 3rd new judge has been designated: Fistandantilus.

I think all 3 judges agree that you should proceed with the game but due to the circumstances, the reload without any kind of proof is a bit strange and cbower receives an official warning for it. Let's hope it does not happen again.

Cheers and good luck for the rest of the turns!

I hope we can proceed the game within the next 24 hours, probably monday evening. I hope the judges has found some kind of agreement by then. I don´t hope that we have to restart the game.

Let us know if the situation was tense or something Eskild. But otherwise, I suggest we count this as 1st reload for cbower and continue. That can happen! It would be anormal if it happened often and before big battles or something.

cbower >> I had a crash
The game crashed when I attacked some Frostlings. I don't know what happened it just stopped there was nothing for me to screen shot or take a picture of with my phone. I understand this puts me in violation of the rules, but there was nothing I could do about it. I'll accept whatever decision you and the judges come to.

Nice, let me know of the password and where to find the screenshots. If we were to actually start the round this evening please extend the turn timer as I will be late working tomorrow and might be incapable of fighting (mentally) when arriving at home.
