Hey folks. Seems like my timing is really bad, a lot of SI games have started and I missed the boat. So maybe we can form up a new group in this thread and kick off a new game?
OK so far we got:
1. Easy (me) - Hosting GMT+1
5 and 6. TimA x2
Will be playing on v 1.07c. Please make sure you have dropbox installed (referred link). And PM me your email.
Also, reply with your votes for game settings by bolding your preferred option:
Options (defaults in bold):
Map Size: Choose between 12/14/16 hex width. Height is always 12.
Map Type: Picks between major map features. Great Rivers tends to be more open. Acheron's Locks has many small areas. Dante's peak has a large mountain and chasms to channel conflict. The Lake of Fire is also open, but adds a special place of power, The Palace on the Lake of Fire, which grants +1 order slot, in addition to prestige.
Place of Power: None, Rare, Uncommon or Common. Determines the number of places of power that will be generated. Public objectives and the Lake of Fire can override the None value.
Game Length: Determines number of tokens to be drawn to end the game (10/15/20/25). You can estimate a turn length of 4x the number of tokens.
I've created a shared dropbox folder called SI_PBEM. For those of you who've already sent me your email you will shortly receive a shared folder invite thingy (site seems to be down right now). Also check the wiki to understand how files are exchanged http://goo.gl/ra7bF
Don't know how busy your lives are, but let's all aim to play a turn 5 days a week. If we can hit 7 days, bonus!
And I have to thank previous SI players for having all this info handy.
