I can't believe it.
The game is rigged. Seriously, it is. After trying to get the medal from Zenneth, I can safely say I was fast-tracked into screwdom, ironically by a castle.
So, here's the deal. After me 'coincidentally' landing on his leveled Storm Giants (the second of which I successfully destroyed), he lands on my L5'd Wall of Fire, bankrupts, and dumps all his lands. Victory is mine, I believe, as it seemed so. (His bankruptcy put me at 5000 difference ahead). I went along my business as usual.
Now, here's the best part. Earlier, he had a huge Gas Cloud in my way. Using Senility and a nearby Dragon, I killed it, but not without losing my Dragon in the process. The space went unclaimed for a while. After he bankrupts, he grabs the land, and I get sent straight to the castle with a 'lucky' 6. Being I was already in the lead, I couldn't level any chained lands I passed, so on.
I was within 100G in the end of claiming that medal. The computer hated me so much, that he forced me to lose by 'winning'. This proves that Culdcept is the most masochistic game invented, I believe.
