I need a new Dominions game so let's start one medium sized for intermediate players. My definition for 'intermediate': You should have finished several MP games and survived the late game with meaningful position.

I'll expect people to put effort into their turns, even when things go bad. Respect your fellow players, but remember that ingame threachery, alliances etc are acceptable tools, as long as everyone keeps playing for their own victory (or survival in last stands) and doesn't orchestrate teams pre-game. Don't use exploits. See the pinned multiplayer rules in this subforum.

Real life of course takes priority over games. I would only ask you to notify me in time if you find yourself unable to continue so I can start looking for a sub. I won't harass anyone for reasons of quitting but please don't abuse this if only motivation wanes. The game should be 'high commitment'. Obviously going AI should not happen in this game.

If you need a delay, ask well in advance and send a PM to me so I don't miss the request.

Era: LA
Mod: CBM 1.94
Players: 7
Map: Vale of Variance (7 fixed starts, set and uploaded to llamaserver by Calahan). For the image file see: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/97382000/Vale%20Of...e%20Only%29.zip

Hosting: 30h turns 1-24, 48h from turn 25 and 72h after turn 45 if at least one player wants it so.
Victory: consensus among the survivors
Diplomacy: Machiavellian, binding trades on items, gems
HoF: 15
Otherwise default settings

Players:

1. vargr - Marignon
2. Gurthang - Abysia
3. turmio - Man
4. cleveland, subbed by chelubey from turn 33 - Jomon
5. Braineater - Utgard
6. Reverend Zombie - C'tis
7. Bullock - Pangaea

Note: the starting locations are not published. I assume that people joining don't know them in advance I don't.

No interest yet it seems. Would someone prefer different settings for the game?

I'm really looking for a middle-era game, I'm currently in a LA game and an EA game.

I also don't know if I would be considered an 'Intermediate' player, since I have mostly been doing pretty good in newb games, but felt pretty overmatched in battles against veteran players in one game I joined.

I will play Midgard.

No problem in case you prefer to shift to MA.

Braineater: If you regularly do well in newb games I believe you should fit in just fine. And vets should stomp intermediates, at least most of the time :)

Let's wait for a couple of days still to see if there is interest for a LA game, I've been wanting to play LA Mari for a while now. But if we're short of players I could perhaps consider MA as well.

I will play around with some LA nations and see if there is one I want to play. However, if a MA game starts up today or tomorrow, chances are I will join that one instead.

Edit: Utgard looks pretty good to me. I will let you know tomorrow for sure if I am in.

On second thought I'll play Abysia instead of Midgard :pirate:

This weekend I am abroad. Starting with Monday I will be ready to design my pretender. Don't worry, I don't travel often and will post my turns punctually ;)

My shield's a bit rusty, but still serviceable. Never been Jomon before, I'll take them.

Welcome all. Depending on Braineater we have 1-2 slots left.
