   Okay I think we will just use the latest CBM as enough people accept it. In other news with Waterplouf we have 9 confirmed people with Duuvian not having confirmed his spot yet. I sent him another message but if we get another person I may have to drop him as 10 people is starting to get up there.
   Also could people start suggesting maps? I don't care if your actually going to be in this round at this point I just need a map so I know where to cut the signups off at.

is LA Patala a water nation ?
No, they're a land nation with some amphibious capability, as are Atlantis, Jomon, and Mictlan. The only nation that actually starts underwater in the LA is R'lyeh.

Tear of Heavens is probably a bit too small for 10 players, but Milk and Honey is about the right size.

I'm really sorry, but I don't like "Mildandhoney" map. I would prefer a map without corners, since corners and borders are strategically better than the center. Non-border maps are more balanced.

   By which I assume you mean wraparound. I personally like them though some people seem to dislike them. Is there anyone here who absolutely doesn't want to play on a wraparound map? Because if not thats probably what we will end up with.

"wraparound" that!
I didn't remeber the word. >.<

So I vote for a Wraparound map.

I prefer wraparound maps. Seems to me that non-wraparound maps tend to have a bit of bias in favor of the players near corners/sides.

 :-[ Not having looked very carefully at Milk and Honey, I assumed it was wrap-around. They're my preference as well.

EDITING THIS POST WITH POTENTIAL MAP CANDIDATES
Here's a complete list of all Elmokki's maps. There's probably a few candidates for our size and wraparound needs.
GandalfParker has quite the catalog of randomly generated "tiny" (normal sized for us) and "small" (big even if we had 11 players) wrap-around maps. They aren't really good for their looks, though.

Is "Realm of Roaring Rhinos" nice?
169+16 (is it too much?)

I dislike a bit the dark-looking maps.

I believe they do have water magic though.

Rusty Nails is a bit smaller, but I noticed a version with fixed starts for 9 land nations, which is how many we'll have if we don't hear from Duuvian. I've also updated my post with a few maps from the Map browser.

   Yes people play Dom3 here. In fact I think there are 2 maybe 3 games running at the moment plus this. If you join and we find a good map for 10 I think I will close the game to further joining. Duuvian hasn't been on since yesterday and while I would like to let him in lest he appears by the tommorow or when we have have 10 people besides him and a map for 10 he will be out.

I prefer around 15, but find anywhere between 12 and 18 acceptable. It's certainly possible to prefer larger or smaller maps than that, though the game length might become too long or too short depending.

EDIT: Continuing to add things to my above post. I don't think finding a map will be a problem.

PPS: It'd be really good to get everyone's nation choice before we settle on a map. If someone decides to play R'lyeh, it'll limit our selection.
