    I'm not sure I follow? The game will run until a victory condition is met.

    Well, there's always a max set of turns in a game. Am I not right? I mean, if no one reaches the victory condition in a set number of turns the game ends. Or can you turn off that?

    400 turns I think, but frankly if somebody hasn't won after 400 turns I'd be disgusted ¬_¬

    I'm kind of tempted, but never played AC before. Would it be foolish for a complete noob to join in or is it pretty straightforward (keeping in mind that I'm a bit shit at 4x games)?

    I can pick up a copy from GoG and take whatever side is left if no one else is interested, but if there is anyone who is desperate to join in they can take my place.

    Oooh haven't played this in years, I'll definitely join. I'm probably rusty, but I know the game fairly well.
    I'll take Morgan Industries.
    Had some difficulty installing the game on win 7 though, since the setup.exe did nothing. But I found a solution here http://www.bay12forums.com/smf/index.php?topic=86200.0

    If there's still a slot open, I'll be Miriam.

    I'm still up for this, and don't mind what faction - I'll take whoever is available.

    First post updated with all seven commitments. I need all seven members to confirm their commitments before the end of the week. Gaia should then open the game and pass it on to the next faction in the game (who will send their email address on to Gaia for such purposes). I want the first turns of the game over asap, before we discuss who gets what day.

    I still need someone in a DM role outside of those seven, (all you'll be doing is keeping the passwords safe and possibly running a game thread). If push comes to shove I'll take on the role.

    Cooper and Vandelay: If you don't choose a faction I'll just assign you at random. :D

    Zyrden, kingbiscuit and Giaddon: Keep your eyes open, someone might drop out. You can also contact the committed members on partnering up with one them; two heads being better than one and all that.

    Consider this my confirmation! :D

    Is it a rule or just a setting, to be able to see the combat odds before every combat phase? I can't remember....

    It's a setting, but there might be a rule that disables it, but it is enabled in standard rules.

    Thanks very much IDtenT. Guess I better grab a copy!

    I'll have a glance over the manual to see what side I'll like from the ones left and give you an answer tomorrow.

    Ah, didn't notice all slots were taken, since there were unclaimed factions. My bad.
    The tip about Directdraw is great though: Playing in full rez? Hell yeah!
    Never heard about Alien crossfire. Some kind of expansion? Is it good?

    Your faction details, if you want any changed. Like your name, gender, etc.

    <del>So that ConcreteOtter can start setting up the game.</del>

    Contact the person who will be playing Morgan and then try and team up with him. :)

    Alien Crossfire gives a whole new set of 7 factions, including 2 alien ones.

    Wow. How did I miss this! :(

    Can somebody sort out a nice writeup/diary/blog somewhere? (Preferably a blog with an rss feed.) .... would be great to follow how this goes. And count me in if you play a second game :)

    Okay, looks like only Morgan and Miriam are left. I think I'll go with Miriam.

    Okay guys, we're almost set to go. Cooper if you have grievances with the Spartans, just say so. I need everyone to chime in with what their faction will be called.

    Edit: Ah, I see I can host the game and pass it on without having to play the first turn. So I need you all to send my your relevant faction information (gender, faction name, leader name, etc), basically everything you can edit - if you want it edited.

    Are we good with standard rules? What about difficulty setting? Random planet?
