This game is SO fun
My friends and I love hotseat games, and apparantly this game has hotseat capabilities, one of the many pluses! But I've been playing this for about 3 hours, with considerable success, I am trying to find my favorite character. So far my favorite is the senator, but he is mostly about recruiting people that come your way so I dunno if I find that so fun, next up is the barbarians!

I'd have to say, my favourite so far would be the necromancer, his ability to put large meat shield armies on the field very early game is unsurpassed. While his economy is weak at first, he doesnt much need it, just use your starting gallows to raise some undead, conquer some humanoid indies and raise the kills, then find some old battlefields and raise even more meatshields. Once a necromancer reaches lich status, you're nigh to unstopable, being able to raise dead with no insanity penalty and when you die, reanimate at your dark citadel. Necromancer FTW.

I suggest you try Priest king before you claim the necro to be the king of meat shields.
Tactic: Put tribal kings in all your villages+ and set them to find slaves each turn.
Save up and only buy tribal kings while your main army goes around taking over villages and so on. When you have about 25+ gold income and a decent number of tribal kings your main army can just gather loads of slaves for the meatshield army, meanwhile you spawn your attackers with your main character.

At one point I had 500+ slaves in 10 of my starting villages+ and I had over 30 villages+ occopied with tribal kings. At one point I had to stop taking up slaves because it got boring to wait for the enemy team to kill off my front line slaves so my more powerful army in the mid section and back could do some damage :)

With that said Necromancer comes in a nice top 3 place considering meatshields, and I would rank them higher than priest king in form of high powered soldiers.
