    Dominions 3 Faerūn map multiplayer game

    Well, lets try something a little crazy. Who would be up for a game of dominions 3 on the faerūn map? We only need 24 people. I expect we need all nations of a certain era, but the era itself is not yet picked so suggestions are welcome.

    So who is up for a game?

    The map can be found here: http://www.llamaserver.net/mapModBrowser.cgi (look for faerūn 466 - adventure - fixed start locations)

    Contact details


    Map: Alexander
    Age: all
    Skill level: we take all
    Turn times: TBA (faster in the beginning, slowing down over time I expect)
    Victory conditions: TBA
    Mods: CBM 1.94
    Admins: multiple, just in case

    Yes! I Look forward to using the experience I've picked up so far

    FYI Dom 3 is £9.03 from Gamersgate with the code elder-geek.com so that should be enough to sway fence sitters.

    I love my Niefl Giants but i know ethically I should pick someone else.

    On the assumption that this game will take a while to set-up, and that I'll be dead in at least one of the other games by the time we start, then I'd like to join in.

    I was thinking of joining another game, but that map is ridiculously big.

    Therefor we need more players and good victory conditions, it's as simple as that.

    edit: I just made a quick calculation, both this map and Blackwald have about 20 regions a player, so technicly they are just as big for each player.

    I think I'll pick this up. Is there likely to be anyone wanting to play a smaller game before this one starts? I'd rather not jump straight in to the meat grinder.

    give the AI a try, it's not perfect but it gives a reasonable fight.

    I'm in for a second game.

    I'd like to play middle age r'lyeh if possible, do you have an idea how you'll pick/assign nations?

    Additionally are you proposing vanilla or some form of modded?

    good you ask, we will run with CBM 1.94 I assume. Just to spice things up. About picking nations...I gues you just picked one. Unless people argue otherwise we will be playing MA and first pick I assume. Although, let's all be civil and try to work out something if you really hope to play a certain nation.

    We can also do random nation if people are more in favour of that? It's all up to you.

    I need to look at the MA options. I'm not really familiar with anything out of EA

    hmm, small problem, there are only 23 nations in MA. So I gues we play with 23 nations or we play EA, which has 24 nations.

    O.o, is that possible... That opens up a lot of posibilities.

    Turns out it is possible, so have fun in making a choice from all options!

    Won't that really screw with the balance?

    Balance?

    But really balance is not a huge part of dom3 and faerun is a nightmare so it matters even less.

    Sure, at the start. But the later stages will be near unmanageable, assuming a large number of players will get knocked out.

    I'll sign up and give it a try, provided you'll pick a smaller map if we don't get a full complement of players.
