Has anyone played a session where game scores based off lowest corruption. It seems like everyone really has to work at having the fomori occupy more places than the tribes.

In Mordred it was a groupthink issue, so you could play with people where it was never likely.

Not in my two plays.

But in our 4p game we triggered the end by hitting the threshold on the corruption track in round 3. And before the action phase the Fomori had the majority, but during the action phase it one player took the majority from the Fomori by building 8 settlements. Without her doing this, I would have won by lowest corruption, so I came in third and she landed on place 2 vs. 4th. Clever move, although not really intentional as it was a learning game for most of us

How could you build 8 settlements in 1 turn? I thought you were allowed to build only once per turn (or twice if you take the action again).

I forgot you had to repeat all the actions. Now it's all clear.
