Carnage: Playing... fair?
23:51:26 Jul 19th 07 - Mr. Barny:

Well I just thought that this was kind of funny... notice the wall "Speed Bump"... looks like an attempt to slow Abydos down a bit, but still I thought it was quite funny for some reason.

00:05:18 Jul 20th 07 - Mr. Sloth:

horde/millions, who wouldn't run?

00:07:29 Jul 20th 07 - Mr. Helmuth Von Moltke:

Smart play. :)

Makes it more interesting than the usual back and forth slogging matches. It's just a rare tactic. Nothing unfair about it.

00:08:31 Jul 20th 07 - Mr. Barny:

Well it isn't the running... It's that they can plotted a course over the wall before it was build, and they can go through it because of the bug, and abydos needs to spend days going around.

00:11:58 Jul 20th 07 - Mr. Helmuth Von Moltke:

Barny, it isn't a bug. Far from it.

Walls were created EXACTLY like that all those many rounds ago with that in mind. If walls stopped the path of army movements, then all an enemy would have to do is put down walls infront of every advancing army to halt their progress indefinately. Too many new players throw around the "bug" accusations these days without understanding game mechanics, or how features were designed in the past.

Now, don't be so silly. It's perfectly legit, it's perfectly fine. It's smart play, hats off to them. I think Oya and Osi, both vets themselves, will know the purpose of the walls, will know it isn't a bug, and will probably agree with me when I say it was a smart move on Carnage's part.

00:13:38 Jul 20th 07 - Mr. Sloth:

it works both ways. its going to take them a lot longer to come back at us now.

and does anyone want to take bets that i could stop that merge in its tracks if i really wanted to? ;)

00:16:27 Jul 20th 07 - Ms. Persephone:

I didnt really see anything unfair myself, its a tactic been used countless times. Hell I remember one era some kingdom putting up 6 walls in a row, with the blocker at alternating that was a pain to maneuver:(

Ahhh sloth your overconfidence is quite becoming....

So we are taking bets that you can singlehandedly stop our merge all by yourself?


makes me miss the days when phi and carnage slugged it out without spouting off in the forums....

00:24:17 Jul 20th 07 - Mr. Sloth:

this war has transitioned into ultra slow motion so i guess i'm just getting bored :-)

00:26:16 Jul 20th 07 - Ms. Persephone:

Cant argue with you there mate;)

Besides, congrats to Abydos for putting together one very scary army, can anyone blame us for running for the hills for reinforcements?^^

00:27:47 Jul 20th 07 - Mr. Barny:

Well I know it isn't technically a "bug", It's just in all the 7 era's I've played this game I haven't seen anyone do something like this. It's clever, but I didn't think it was too "honorable."

On a side note, I think walls are pretty messed up. I personally find the "Build a wall over a river and into an enemy core" trick to be really satisfying...

00:44:26 Jul 20th 07 - Ms. Persephone:

<raises eyebrow>

So by extension of your reasoning, all walls are unhonorable if they are built to slow down an incoming enemy? Heh, you need to play more on Fant mate, there are some in Fant who can be real creative with wall building (there was this one guy who was trying to spell out his kingdoms name with walls:P) And His Slothiness is right, that wall is just as big of an pain in the ass for us as it is for them, because if by some small tiny miracle that our soon-to-be-horde can beat their horde, then we will have to navigate that stupid wall:P


Heh, and that sidenote of yours is funny. You find a riverjumping technique quite satisfying?

Funny....i thought jester leadership openly condemned riverjumping of any kind.....


00:48:04 Jul 20th 07 - Mr. Barny:

Well walls to slow people down seem ok, you know, when you put troops in them...

01:12:55 Jul 20th 07 - Mr. Sloth:

theres nothing controversial about this. its just a wall.

01:13:01 Jul 20th 07 - Mr. Soccer:

persephone, i think i found sarcasm in barny's statement about riverjumping. jester does condemn, and has not used it to my knowledge (and i watch almost every move made in the kingdom.)

anyway, it is a good tactic, nice job carnage. i only wish we were more involved in that war! lol

01:29:12 Jul 20th 07 - Lord Eleutherios:

@ Soccer: No. One enemy at a time please. What do you guys think we are? Gods? *Pauses* Oh, yeah, but that doesn't mean that we are really omni-potent. *Pauses and thinks* I think I better shut up.
@ Barny: Erm, don't mind me, for I am still learning the game, but I believe the Abydos guys (aka the honourable kingdom) already made clear that they can live with it.

01:43:09 Jul 20th 07 - Ms. Persephone:


Sorry had to let that out....


its just a wall people, a crudely built one whose sole intention is to slow down a kickass army, nothing more nothing less....


Now bridge building magical thats a serious problem we need to address.....

01:45:25 Jul 20th 07 - General Konichiwa:

Id have done exactly the same only created about 5+ of them :)

Quit your whining

01:46:31 Jul 20th 07 - Sir Gaius Septim:

*Septim walks in

"Did anybody order-"

*Septim checks the label

"-Roasted flamingo with a side of chipmunk curry?"

01:48:31 Jul 20th 07 - Mr. MY God Farts:

omfg that order was so LATE!! my ancesters made that order and yet its only being delivered now??

01:52:43 Jul 20th 07 - Sir Gaius Septim:


*Septim looks at his watch

"It's been over 43 years so I guess you get it free, here you go"

*Septim hands MY God Farts his box and walks away

01:54:37 Jul 20th 07 - Mr. Sloth:

yeah, carnage sucks for only making one wall. is that the best you can do? mwauhahahahwwhahhaahhaahaaa.

01:54:40 Jul 20th 07 - Lord Hermes:

We have ladders. We can climb over the Wall ;)

01:56:26 Jul 20th 07 - Mr. MY God Farts:

<if by some small tiny miracle that our soon-to-be-horde can beat their horde>

lol that won't be a problem, cuz our horde only has swordsmen in it and nothing else :D so could you errrm errr turn your army around? i promise we'll lose :)


02:01:37 Jul 20th 07 - Ms. Persephone:

Damn it! You guys have nothing but swords???How can we beat that??!!!

All we have are gaias:(



03:07:04 Jul 20th 07 - Lord Eleutherios:

Erm, my recently-returned-from-retirement-diplomat, I thought we got only farmers?

03:09:26 Jul 20th 07 - Mr. Sloth:

carnage admitting all they have are farmers? ha, proof! zing@!#%--->ba bing

03:12:21 Jul 20th 07 - Ms. Persephone:

Ha! The jokes on you! When all thats left of the world is a famine ridden cesspool because of the coming nuclear holocaust, we in carnage will be sitting pretty on all those mounds of beans, glorious beautiful beans!!!

03:20:41 Jul 20th 07 - Sir Bruto Cikayson:

Then you discover... those aren't beans... someone decided to switch them all out with deer poo.

But Persephone will be alright.  She has an unlimited supply of pomengranite seeds from a very deep bunker...

03:33:10 Jul 20th 07 - Ms. Persephone:

Dammit Bruto the pomengranite seeds were a secret, now the other carnage guys will want some:(

03:34:27 Jul 20th 07 - Lord Eleutherios:

Yes, we only have beans, though I would like to have it with ham or sausages, but all of us decided to turn vegetarian. I am not so sure about the pomegranates.

And all of us only train level one troops, except for our dwarves, who trains only cavemasters.

03:35:04 Jul 20th 07 - Sir Gaius Septim:

Those will be good to serve in Septim's exotic eats

*Septim runs to go steal some seeds

04:11:33 Jul 20th 07 - Sir Bruto Cikayson:

While I'm handing out all of Carnage's secrets, I might as well add these to shake up their members:

Dionysus has lots and lots of wine he doesn't tell you guys about because he's a greedy drunk.

Artemis has a giant supply of salted meat, from all the time she spends hunting instead of working.

Hahahah now I will nudge them into a great civil war!!!!  XD

04:19:38 Jul 20th 07 - Sir Gaius Septim:

*Septim comes back with a lartge bag of seeds

There is more? Woohooo!!!

*Septim runs off to steal some wine and salted meat

05:00:48 Jul 20th 07 - Daimyo Chuck Norris:


How did you build that wall? I've never seen one of those before :O

05:52:22 Jul 20th 07 - Lord Eleutherios:

It will take more than wine and salted meat to push us to civil war, dear sire.
* mutters * Wait till I get my spear back from Enyalius....
* Spots Hermes at the corner of my eyes * Hermes, I want your shoes! I want my spear back from that thief Enyalius....
* Feels something sharp in my behind * Yes, my spear! Oh wait, that hurts.
* Starts civil war *

06:06:23 Jul 20th 07 - Sir Gaius Septim:

*Septim comes back and sees a Divine Civil War

"Errrrrr....time to make my escape!"

*Septim runs away

06:40:55 Jul 20th 07 - Mr. Twamao:

Barny you are stupid

08:03:49 Jul 20th 07 - Mr. Draven:

wow we can make walls in this game, what will you crazy kids think of next :)

08:15:59 Jul 20th 07 - Sir Gaius Septim:

*Suddenly a strange looking rabbit runs in with a box that says: "Trix"

"Hahahhahaha, they're finally mine"

*He is chased by a mob of kids with pitchforks and knives yelling: "Silly rabbit, Trix are for kids"

"Hehehe, he's going to get his butt beat"

*Suddenly the rabbit turns around, mouth frothing. He pulls out a Colt 1911 and yells: "Not this time you punks!"

"Holy brown stuff!"

*Septim runs and jumps under a table as the crazy rabbit starts firing

"This is what the kids come up with next!"


09:18:45 Jul 20th 07 - Mr. Rocketdude:

In RL my mom bought me Trix yesterday

09:57:28 Jul 20th 07 - Mr. Rocketdude:

I just finished eating a bowl of Trix in RL

10:54:22 Jul 20th 07 - Mr. MY God Farts:


12:49:36 Jul 20th 07 - Lord Hermes:

Stay away from my shoes! How else can I plunder Persephone, Artemis and Dionysus? I need to work on my own bunker.......

01:04:45 Jul 21st 07 - Mr. Justanius Fontaini:

Mr. Sloth

this war has transitioned into ultra slow motion so i guess i'm just getting bored :-)

everything is slow for sloths

03:11:31 Jul 21st 07 - Sir Helios:

Wow, all this over my little wall. Makes me feel all tingly inside. =D

Really though, the wall wasn't even needed but it's a good laugh.

Would have made more walls to but them darned Farmer Scouts are all over the place! =P

17:56:00 Jul 21st 07 - Lord Sanosuke Sagara:

will you build another wall when we get horde number 2 around? same for horde 3 etc etc?

if anything i would feel like i have taken away a smidge of free will from you....thus making my delusional god status into slightly less delesional god status :o

22:30:49 Jul 21st 07 - Lord Weirdgrivi The Diplomat:

Oya's been drinking that insular beer again?

22:46:14 Jul 21st 07 - Dark Lord Finwe:


22:46:44 Jul 21st 07 - Sir Gaius Septim:

NO! Akatosh is better!

23:01:18 Jul 21st 07 - Sir Helios:

 I built wall #2, now where is that 2nd Horde you promised? Yet to see Horde #1 poke it's head out of the gates let alone a 2nd one. =)
