I'm really interested in this game, having followed the other two threads for a while. However, I don't have that kind of cash to throw at a game currently. I'll see after christmas, when I will (hopefully) have more cash, and maybe a new computer.

Ok! I had half a mind to post the next round myself because I've been itching for a game, thanks for the heads up Il Palazzo!

Mark me down as Enigma of Steel Ulm. Conan's coming for Xmas dinner!

Heh, I was hoping you'd join, slMagnavox!

@Burnt Pies: I'm almost 100% sure we'll wait until after Christmas before starting, so just let us know when you're ready.

From behind the towering wall of flames, a shadowy figure shifted.  Ever so slowly, it inched further and further toward the great expanse of its new dominion.

I'm game, count me in as Aybsia.

I'm in, of course.

As always, I'm rolling random....  ... ........ .... ....... .....

... And after like 12 rolls that were all nations I had already played, or nations you guys picked, I came up with Tien'Chi, so put me down for them!

I think I'm going to skim through the other game threads and look for everyone who expressed interest in playing and send them PMs...

Make sure Il Palazzo hasn't already done so.  I know for a fact he already pm'd me.  I don't need 8 pms asking me to play...

Sorry folks, I probably do not have time.  But I'll be cheering on Il Palazzo's defeat from the sidelines regardless.

Thanks for the info.  By the way, I did appreciate being asked to play.  It's just that I was worried others might not like multiple pms, and that I might be less appreciative if I recieved too many invites.  Have fun!  :D

Downloading the demo now, I'll give a concrete answer on whether I'm getting this or not sometime soon.

Also, I promise not to fill up the thread with accounts of my demo exploits.


EDIT: Well, the demo was a lot of fun, even if I got my arse kicked. Money is less of a problem than it was, so I'm looking at getting the game soon.

Go ahead without me this time, Palazzo. I'm going home for Crimbo where I'll actually be able to play the game on Saturday, but I'll be meeting up with old friends / family / revising up until my exams mid jan, so I won't be able to participate until after then. Sorry!  :-[

Oi! A big catch in this game is having a good set of committed players. We've signed up a good crew already but disappearing players do happen. To mitigate that effect on our New Game! I would like to formally suggest a six player game on the following map: Six Lands. It is kind of a mirror/balance map that wraps around east and west. I've never played on a map like it and think it would keep things nice and tense throughout. PS: Don't rush me pls!

With only six we can turn up the fluff a little and the map layout certainly lends itself to some epic backstabbing opportunities. And the last two spots will hopefully go to known players or those comfortable with the commitment (E.Albright, if you're reading this c'mon and join up already. You know you've got the time for a game, Dom3 is soooo easy). Ok! Also good to bump this a little, commence with the feedbacks.

Man, I nearly wrote a bloody love letter to E.Albright asking him to play. We need that son of a gun.

Feedback commencing:
6 commited players sounds much better than 12 quitters. Still, if a sudden rush of incomers will somehow materialize itself, we could reconsider going over that limit.
And boy, do I hate symmetrical maps. Fighting over another iteration of the same province is just so much more boring than having unique territories to play with. Also, ~14 provinces per player only? I'd preffer around twice that amount.
These are my two pences, but of course, should the majority decide to accept...

I'll say Arcoscephale, by the way. I've had most success with them in the demo.
