In 3 months zounds of Sprites (643), throng of storm and ice elementals, and 21 firebirds. Hero is 25lvl I'm pro player, and sprite is a powerful creature. Should be four firebirds per week, but I can play unbalanced map and h3 motor.

Scenario:

You once had a pagan religion. This religion worshipped (like many others) nature and it's phenomenon. The priests had sacred places, but did not had temples. They kept sacred fire.
Now fast forward several centuries. No reliable, non biased sources describing your religion's rituals exist. Those that do were written by gluttonous tonsure wearing dinguses speaking germanic languages and are biased as bleep. There are also some texts, describing a joint religious celebration with a eastern culture with similar let's use shamanistic for a lack of a better term, practice of worship. You want to revive your pagan religion, but you don't want to base it off the aphromentioned source, because politics.

Question.
Which other, western European pagan religion are you most likely to rip off, based on what you have?

Hint: not the Norse.

Yeah, pretty much, since the rituals of ye olde celtic druids are the most similar to what we have here. You won't believe how many neopagantards I've triggered with this, I'm literally Putin to them right now.


On another note,  just upgraded to a samrt device.

Tried creature quest.
it was pretty meh, although the artwork is nice, I'll give them that.

Pocket Mortys, now that's a better mobile game

I honestly find the Hellenic and Roman deities far more appealing and awesome than Norse, Druidic, Asatru or whatever the hell those bloody northeners had as deities.

Janus is the best simply put.

but greco-roman pantheon and the way it was worshiped does not befit the scenario I've given.

Out of all the european old religions, the old Slavic one(bloody hell, even some of the deities names are similar) or the celtic druidism fits the narrarative. and you can't base it on old slavic, because it'll somehow bring back communist bloc and stalinist repressions onto the land. or something.


But out of all the Greek gods, if given the option to worship one or two, I'll go with Hephaestus and Artemis, since those two represent the two major aspects of my life.

The Anxiety - HotA map


Expert lvl AIs are played slowly, but won me by maximum troops, and got a good artifacts added his primary skills.
Hard lvl AIs are noob, I won by Necropolis in 5 months.
Expert lvl AIs are played well, but stupid allied visited my sea area, much better collects enemies sea area.

Now 7-8 rating, yeah I play then what's the result. I will play also impossible, it takes time.

Another random map, hero is 31 lvl, and his legion of spirtes went to throng, enemy used recanter's cloak so autosaved

Well, after a day with some dense heat and very clear blue sky, something started brewing in there.



Spiked with lightnings and hail, just like that, out of the blue, literally. It got so dark that street lamps started to shine everywhere. Still 4h15 P.M, it is looking dark, but not as much as some minutes ago.  Flash floods everywhere.

Now I play Founderling Ventures in impossible level. A map seems that intelligence and mysticism are importance/value.

The U.S. just ceased all visa applications from Turkey indefinitely (except immigrants), wonder what is the detail behind this, the operations in the Southeast or the arresting of an embassy worker.

Cause you guys are very pesky, apart from the obvious TERRORISTA threat, your amazing gov has the tendency to detain US citizens without due process or deny them the ability to leave, very pesky indeed. That said Brits will be more peeved, they love to get a good ol' tan n some young lads while in Turkey.

There were no terrorist attacks from any Turkish citizen on U.S. soil ever and the ones who visit frequently are mostly students or upper class business men/tourists, so, I wouldnt say there is an obvious terrorist threat.

Within Turkey lol. I guess I can loosely follow their logic, then again you never really asked for a well reasoned argument for why the US made the move, just a plain explanation. Turkey is unstable and violence "rampant" within her borders especially in the southern regions of, travel to and fro is ill advised (and now from what I hear banned at last), simples.
