Of course, this is the point at which one of them decides he's going to do something clever. With six legions bearing down on me, and with no hope for the rest of us if my armies are destroyed, he decides now is an excellent time to deploy a Machine. The Machine knocks two points off my Wickedness, depriving me of an order slot and the means to destroy a 16HP super-legion in the vanguard of the enemy host through Destruction rituals. The Lord has put all his resources into Deceit meaning it affects him not at all. I now have next to no chance of waging an offensive war; it'll be all I can do to keep hold of what I've got. Nobody else can do anything to stop them; Gillen's armies have been gutted, Speedo has been relying on arena combats to resolve vendettas and this guy can't even take one of the Vassal/Lord pair on his own, let alone both of them together. The game's been handed to them on a platter, all because this cretin - who thinks that "sitting on my ass doing nothing for fifty turns and running up a 130 point deficit" is the same as "plotting" - thinks he's far cleverer than he actually is.
Three weeks of effort and planning, all ruined by a total fucking idiot possessing no strategic nous whatsoever who wasn't even a contender. Gah.

I guess you could always pray for the excommunication event card, so you can all vote out the current winner.

Then I thought: "Hang on, I know what might be going on here. Maybe everyone involved in this dispute is awful." It would explain a lot. Most people, if they're not very religious and see someone displaying a cross, would think anything from: "Nothing wrong with that" to: "Mental note: this guy's a bit of a God-botherer – don't get stuck with him at a party." It takes quite a leap of self-importance to decide: "I'm going to put a stop to that!"
