Proposed rules: Admin takes your user name, applies some small uniform transformation (so we "keep it fresh", though seeds will vary radically from the last round as it stands), and feeds it into a (publicly available) online hashing application to generate a nation seed. You play with whatever grotesque nation results therefrom.

Dom4 forums on Desura
Link to Edi's Dom4 Database
An archived snapshot of the Dom3 wiki: Yes, it's still relevant, and it hasn't been replaced yet, so... It has loads of useful information, including strategy guides. Keep in mind that while a lot of this information is still very useful and valid, a lot of it is entirely out-of-date.

Llama Server: the automatic hosting server for our game.
Llama Server's map and mod browser (Yes, it's not really a browser, but you can browse the maps and mods here)
Dom4 Mod Inspector Very useful. You can browse all the nations, items, spells and sites in the game with it.

So a few people expressed interest in another game, and then no one expressed interest in admining it. *theatrically loud, put-upon sigh*

I'm not looking to get this going ASAP - Whenever It's Eventually Possible is fine by me, as my nation is still shambling along in round 4.17. This post is just to get the ball rolling, gauge interest, etc.

Well, I still need to purchase Dominions 4, but I'll do that sometime prior to submitting a Pretender.   :P

At any rate, color me interested!

Any chance this could go for a disciples game?

I'd be interested in another game. The only thing that I might suggest is perhaps generate two nations per player (say, generate for AlStar1 and AlStar2), then let the player pick? I know that part of the !!fun!! of hashed is that you might end up with just about anything, but it'd be nice to have some choice in the matter.

... if it's a disciples game, I would totally make the probably terrible decision of joining in. Not sure about allowing the player choice, though... maybe the option of a collective mulligan? Once the nations are genned, everyone can take a gander and then we can all vote for/against a reroll. Just one, mind, but one.

I'd be happier with a collective mulligan than individual choice.

I'm also perfectly keen on the idea of doing this as disciples - ideally the teams would be assigned either randomly or before nations are generated so synergy is something you have to actively work to achieve. ;p

Incidentally, if we're not trying to rush this out, there may be another NG patch ready by the time we'd be set to go. The next patch will probably be nothing but primate cultural diversity and a few tweaks/fixes, but the primate variety portion is moving along quite a bit faster than I'd expected. I knocked out the basic theme structures tonight (along with adding a winged primate theme, hehehe...), so unless I go overboard with the amount of culture-specific gear I could actually see getting it done w/in a week. In theory, anyway.

I'd have signed up for the last game if I'd had time, and I have time now, so let's see if sufficient tenacity finally overcomes my lack of real skill.

The question isn't whether I'm interested, it's whether you're willing to let me in :P

Collective mulligan sounds fine, disciples sounds fine.

Are you actually gonna play more then 3 turns this game? :P

Oh, and something I forgot to tell you guys about last game.
I got sick at the beginning of the last game. I'M STILL FUCKING SICK GODDAMMIT.

Honestly, I'd rather not have you on my team.  No offense, and it is due to concerns of reliability and not because you demolished me several games ago.

I'd be happy to team up with BFEL or anyone else.

Reliability's actually probably one of the better minor aspects of a disciples game, heh. If someone's having trouble, they have a ready-made individual (or two, or...) that has their best interests in mind and a fairly good idea what the general strategy is, already there, able to keep things moving. Staling issues are still a problem, but it is (/can be) somewhat less of one than it is for a non-disciples round.
