I see part 4 came out yesterday.  Odd that the enemy doesn't seem to have a capital; you'd think they would, even if they are "nomadic" ??? 


Incidentally, I also see the game itself is now out.  Price on the Matrix store is $39.99, which is a little better than I expected.

Unless it’s already been taken I can’t find one - if they never have one I need to look into how they get supplies because if they’re independent and make their own then there’s no point surrounding them in battle to cut the supply line

I have a feeling the other majors are much bigger than me - we’ll see soon

Sweet!  Congrats on your victory over the Pezono, and acquiring a free folk town.  :bigthumb: 


What difficulty level is this, by the way?  I've been hearing the AI in Shadow Empire is significantly better than in most 4x/wargames, and subsequently that it's recommended playing on a lower difficulty than you would other games.

It’s the one above beginner - normal I think - the ai is definitely more aggressive and resources are harder to come by

Ugh.  I'm irritated, and it's not even my campaign!  Stupid nomads and Zezonars...  >:(

I suppose it’s a lesson in keeping the rear areas covered and not splitting forces - I have enough power to crush any non aligned force or minor but not 3 at once

The incursion on my supplies in the south is easy fixed and the ones in the south east sat on the road but the assholes who stole the metal might be trouble
