    Dominions 4: Allium cepa

    Allright, Lets see if we can start another Dom 4 game, as I just got the game itself.

    Map: TBD
    Age: EA
    Timeframe: TBD
    Hosting Method: Llamaserver
    Victory Condition: Victory Locations in capitals (60-75% to win)
    Thrones: High number, to spice the game up

    I was thinking of attempting a Disciples game, with either 3*3 players or 4*2, but the specifics will be worked out as we get people signed up. Also I was thinking of using the victory points system used in the dom 3 hills and dom 3 DemOnions game. It seems to work well, and it doesn't keep the game dragging on for to long.

    On the Thrones, I was thinking of putting a rather high number in. I like those a lot, and they give some extra impusle to fight early. But if someone gives good reasons not to, then please let me know.

    The Choice of nations will of course be affected by this set-up, so we sign up for the game first. Then decide on the teams and finally pick the nations. How this will work, TBD.

    So sign up I say, and lets have some fun.

    Signed up:

    Team 1:
    1. Eschatos - Mictlan
    2. Wolfenswan - Lanka
    3. El Cubo - Tien Chi

    Team 2:
    4. Spleendamage - Sauromatia
    5. Jarvis - Agartha
    6. Rotekian - Berytos

    Team 3:
    7. Heliocentric - Vanheim
    8. Dominicus - Atlantis
    9. Prester John - Nieflheim

    If you're going to have thrones, you should make them the victory condition as well. Not sure if I'll join. Four games may be too many to manage.

    nah, the thrones could act as a nice extra, but I rather not set them as the goal.

    So, the more games I sign up for... the more likely I am to win, yes?

    I'll sign up, but if the game fills up and someone else is being excluded, I'll surrender my seat.

    I'm game. I've played one game of Dominions more than ten years ago. I consider myself a professional.

    And we ahve entered the 4*2 set-up, so 4 teams of 2. How will we pick the teams? Either we make teams on our own or you all send me a number between 0-100. I will just make a list and the first two are a team, etc.

    The sing-ups will be open untill friday, possibly saturday.

    Hey Dominicus, Your inbox is full!

    I prefer random teams. Comes of always getting picked last for football teams.

    and we have entered 3*3 set-up.
    I will use the random list from wolfenswan to set it all up. I'll let the sign-up run for one more day. Then we have a few days to talk and set-up nations.

    Allright, as I might not be able to set it up before sunday I will make a temporary start set-up, so people can start to get in contact and start thinking of strategies.

    The list:

    Team 1:
    1. Eschatos
    2. Wolfenswan
    3. El Cubo

    Team 2:
    4. Spleendamage
    5. Jarvis
    6. Rotekian

    Team 3:
    7. Heliocentric
    8. Dominicus
    9. Prester John

    Nations, let's go with EA, as that one hasn't been played yet. The nations will be picked by rotation. 1,2,3,3,2,1,2,1,3. This way 1 gets the first pick, 3 gets a early double pick and 2 is not to far behind with every pick. Besides all this map suggestions are welcome, but the prettier the better I say :P

    If we get more sign-ups then I will do a rerun of the set-up on sunday. So feel free. I recon in that case we use the same list, but ad the new player as number 10, with 5 teams in total. I recon one of the admins should, if that happens, be able to highjack this post and addapt it, feel free to :P. (we all know you want to abbuse your powers once in a while)

    For diplomacy, appoint one of each team to be the primary contact, so teams don;t have to keep spamming 3 members at all times. I recon thats all, if I missed anything let me know.
