View Full Version : Solium Infernum multiplayer thread
This is intended to be a central thread for folks looking for games of Solium Infernum. There're two threads titled in the vein of "Who wants a game of SI?" which then turn into discussion threads for said game.
I propose this thread for people to find others seeking a game but then players create a new thread for each game for discussion/AAR type stuff, whatever. Just so there's a thread where people know they can yell to see if there's anybody up for a game and it'll be seen.
Anyway, I shall start the ball rolling. After re-reading the "Gameboys From Hell" series again I have the urge to play some SI. Also I've never completed a MP game as the one I tried two of the guys ended up having time constraints and the like.
So yeah, I am looking for people to kick my sorry rump all over hell. :)

I've just been brutally ejected from my game, so I'm definitely up for another one.
07-09-2011, 02:09 PM
Right. I've been meaning to play SI for yonks so I'll get the game and join in if you don't mind having an new player along.
I'm as good as a new play baboonanza so you are more than welcome. :D
So for a new game thus far we have me, Kelron and baboonanza (assuming he gets the game.)
Limit's six, right?
07-09-2011, 02:54 PM
Yeah. Ideally we want a full complement, although 5 is enough.
There were two folks mentioning looking for a game in the other SI threads so hopefully they see this + one more.

I too was rudely ousted from my last game. Got excommunicated on the third turn (I think) whilst next to the scariest starting legion in the game. Was convenient to be cast into the abyss just before I went on holiday though.
Will join a new game if one is starting up.
07-09-2011, 04:19 PM
Four then. Time to start planning a build :)
I'm way in over my head already.
07-09-2011, 06:06 PM
I think it's time I gave this a try. I bought it long ago but have only played half a game against the AI so far. Apparently there is a free mini expansion on the way: http://www.crypticcomet.com/blog/?p=626. It is scheduled for beta at the end of the month, so probably not worth waiting to start a game for though.

Reread that AAR too. So brilliant. Unfortuantly, Im a student, and my parents arent exactly behind the idea of buying me a game, and I cant myself. But I will gladly feed off the scraps I get here.
07-09-2011, 11:36 PM
I'd definitely be in for a game if it isn't already full
I think that's 6?
Me, kelron, baboonanza, desvergeh, Jolima and Zapatistas by my count.
Six! Have you got the game yet, baboonanza?
08-09-2011, 08:25 AM
Who's doing the hosting?
Er, dunno. I shall set up a new thread anyway to leave this one for anyone else hoping to find people for a game.
08-09-2011, 11:31 PM
edit: oops wrong thread
14-09-2011, 10:22 AM
Anyone up for getting another SI game going? The other one is on semi-pause for a week and I have an itch to scratch.
14-09-2011, 12:26 PM
Sure, can put another one on. Maybe we could set it as a short game and try some less conventional tactics.
14-09-2011, 04:56 PM
I would be up for that. I don't even own the game yet, but I've played the demo a few times and have no problem getting in over my head.
14-09-2011, 06:32 PM
I could join another as well.
15-09-2011, 08:45 AM
Great, one more player would be good. Anyone else?
15-09-2011, 12:08 PM
Ah, go on then. I'd in particular be up for a short or long game.
15-09-2011, 05:26 PM
So, a short game with:
desvergeh, Jolima, lasikbear, moth bones and myself
I'll set up a new thread

Hey Guys, long term lurker but only just signed up with the forums. I picked up SI a little while ago after the RPS article and haven't been able to track anyone down for a MP can you guys pencil me in when/if you start another game?
20-09-2011, 09:30 AM
I've owned SI for ages, but actually never played much, so I'm in the same boat as Sarigs - If anyone is thinking of hosting a game, count me in! There's now at least 2 of us, so if we get a few more, maybe we can get a game running ;)
A caveat - I'm pretty busy in RL, so I probably won't have a lot of time on my hands, some weeks being able to post only one turn or so.
20-09-2011, 04:48 PM
I'd be in for an SI game, bought it on a G&T fuelled whim the other night and really enjoy the singleplayer so the chance to be miserably terrible with RPS peoples sounds good.
I'm a new player, only just started my first multiplayer game so I'd be in for another. I'd love to play a medium - long game but not really fussed either way.
EDIT. That makes 4 of us I think?
21-09-2011, 12:29 PM
Excellent, suppose if we can get a 5th or 6th we can have a bash at running a game :-)
21-09-2011, 05:36 PM
I'm in the two that have started already, but rounds are pretty quick to finish so I guess I could join another.
(I just hope there is not a point in the game when it suddenly starts taking hours to play a turn.)
21-09-2011, 07:01 PM
I'm in the closeing stages of my current game so i'd be up for a new one.
Jolima - I don't think thats the case even with 4 order slots. Unless you are very indecisive!
Okay so we potentially have a group of:
Me, Sarigs, Scilantius, Jarvis, Jaytee. And maybe Jolima.
Anyone comfortable with being the host? I would be, but seriously, you want someone more reliable than me. Should I make a new thread for ze game?
Anyone else who is interested should post here as someone may forget / drop out before the start.
21-09-2011, 10:41 PM
Excellent If anyone else has hosted before then bagsy them. Otherwise I'm happy to wade through the manual and figure it out/figure out how drop box works as well :-) Any volunteers? I'll look into it tomorrow if not!
It seems easy enough, the most complicated part getting everyones email and creating the game. If no one else wants to do it I'll give it a bash but would feel bad if I manage to screw up / delete our game at some point!
22-09-2011, 12:32 PM
If your up for it Duff that would be great, would prefer to get a game in before trying to host one, get a bit 'o practise in with the mechanics :-)
22-09-2011, 05:39 PM
Well volunteered duff, i've pm'd you my email address.
As to accidently deleting stuff, my current game has an old save's folder and a current numbered folder, when the turn's in drag the folder into the old turn folder create a new one and put the new main save in.
Ta, can everyone pm me their email please and I'll make the game / invites.
22-09-2011, 08:18 PM
Consider yourself PMed like a boss :-)
Nice, that was quick, just waiting for Scilantius' email and then I'll get it made.
Okay gents check your email for the invitation to the dropbox which contains all the invitation files. Also consult page 34 of the manual if this is your first time and I will make a thread for this game.
25-09-2011, 07:49 PM
My current game is finishing up, so I was wondering if there would be any interest in a new game for when the mini-expansion hits, as it is supposedly imminent (http://www.crypticcomet.com/blog/), at least in beta form.
25-09-2011, 08:28 PM
I do. Been a long time since I played a SI game. I just need to find my key :S
EDIT: Oh nm, Vic is awesome. Sent me my key back based on an e-mail conversation we used to have.
Somewhat Okay Shepherd
26-09-2011, 03:07 AM
Yeah sure, why not? The three games I'm in are moving at a narcoleptic snail's pace.
26-09-2011, 04:49 AM
I'd be up for a second game if you've a space :-)
26-09-2011, 06:48 AM
I'd be in for another
26-09-2011, 05:56 PM
I'm up for a game
30-09-2011, 05:52 PM
I'm up for a game too. I am horrendous at it, and haven't played it much in the last year, so I'm happy to prop up the bottom of the charts.
Hey boys and girls, we're looking for 2 more players here: http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/forums/showthread.php?1905-Solium-Infernum-Better-the-devil-you-know
02-11-2011, 11:49 PM
Someone in the Half Price Demon Battles (http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/forums/showthread.php?1872-Half-Price-Demon-Battles%21) thread had to bow out, so we've got an opening. Just establishing map parameters and we'll be kicking off shortly.
03-11-2011, 06:26 PM
I just bought the game, I'm more than up for a match. I have a crude understanding of how it all works but I'll be pretty rubbish.
Email me tghclark(at)hotmail.co.uk if you need a quick response :)
14-11-2011, 07:54 PM
My current game is either dead or in hibernation for the winter, anyone looking to start a new game?
14-11-2011, 09:22 PM
I'd be up to join another game, not organised enough to host though.
15-11-2011, 08:17 AM
Got the game in the sales recently, up for trying it!
15-11-2011, 08:27 AM
Also grabbed the game during the sale, and am very interested in diving right into a multiplayer game even if I'm going to get bashed in the face.
15-11-2011, 09:15 AM
I'd be up for another as long as I'm not hosting, start a thread and lets get it on.
15-11-2011, 06:32 PM
I'd be fine with hosting but I've no idea how to do so, can anybody point me in the direction of instructions for hosting a game?
EDIT: Working on a thread now.

17-11-2011, 08:25 AM
I'm looking for a game as well. I've never played or hosted, but I'd be willing to try and figure DropBox out if nobody else feels like hosting.
30-09-2012, 06:48 PM
I am certainly up for a game, even though my skills are nonexistent .
30-09-2012, 07:19 PM
1981 Yeah... Pretty much.
