Not much going on. There's the usual tribute delivery, except this time I get it twice. There's some souls in there, 6 to be precise, plus some other stuff. My vault now contains the following resources:
Also, the scepter has passed to me, and I get to draw a new event:
Fill the Coffers isn't actually a bad event for me to hold at this point, since I have an abundance of resources that I can't use at the moment. If one or several of my opponents are short of resources, they would lose prestige if I played it. I'd rather hold on to Infernal Perfidy, though, since I still only have my starting legion, and thus am immune to the effects of that event, while my opponents are not. If I had a prophecy level of 6, I'd be able to keep both, but my prophecy level is only 1, so I have to discard the event I just drew.
I still need two more souls before I can upgrade my charisma, so I'm going to demand tribute twice, just like I did last turn.
That ends turn 13.
Again, nothing much is happening. There's some tribute, and the scepter has passed to Paimon. The tribute this turn wasn't exactly stellar, but I did receive 2 souls, which brings my total to 9. Just enough to increase my charisma by one point. Unfortunately, when you pay for anything in this game, you can use a maximum of 8 resource cards to do so. Since all of my resource cards have low values, there's no way I'll be able to meet the price using just 8 cards, so I have to combine some of them to create a "super card", using the consolidate tribute order. This uses an order slot, and it takes a turn, so I won't be able to increase my charisma until next turn.
Issuing the consolidate tribute order takes me to the vault interface:
The bottom half of the screenshot shows the contents of my vault. It can easily be cluttered up, since the resource cards you receive are just dumped in there, and there's no function for sorting them. I usually try to keep it as tidy as possible, by making seperate rows for cards with different resources. This works pretty well, and it doesn't require that much work, once you get used to it.
The top half show the resources I'm committing to the task at hand, in this case consolidating tribue. As you can see, I'll be creating a single card with 9 souls and 4 ichor. Each card can contain more than one resource, but each resource can only have a maximum value of 9. If you try to commit more than 9 of any single resource, when consolidating tribute, any resources over 9 will go into a seperate card.
I'll use my last order for demanding tribute.
And that concludes turn 14.
First of all I'm informed that consolidation of the tribute cards was successful, which is of course excellent. Not that there was any chance of it being unsuccessful, mind you.
Also, it appears that someone has played an event, which closes the infernal bazaar for 4 turns. That's ok, though, since I'm not really able to afford anything anyway, and in any case I'm trying to focus on increasing my attributes.
The scepter has passed to Murmur, and another conclave token has been drawn. This brings the total of drawn tokens to 5. When it reaches 15 the game is over, and whoever has the most prestige at that point wins. Supposedly, the chance of drawing a token increases with the number of tokens already drawn, but let's just say, for the sake of simplicity, that I'm about 1/3 into the game. Anyway, this would probably be a good time to take a look at the score board:
As you can see, I'm in the lead with 46 points, followed by Asmodeus with 28 and Murmur with 27. The rest still only have the 10 points they started out with. Several of them have access to unclaimed Places of Power, but don't have the strength to take them. They'd better get that strenght soon, if they want to stay in the race.
Finally, there's the matter of the tribute. I received 3 souls this time, so I'm satisfied with my minions for now.
Since I've now created a better resource card, you'd think that I'd now be able to increase my charisma. But no, I still can't meet the price using just 8 resource cards, so I have to issue another order to consolidate tribute. as (almost) always, I use the second order to demand tribute.
This concludes turn 15.
