    I'm up for this. Haven't played any MP games before, so I am fine with whatever you guys think is a good choice. Default would therefore be:

    Map Size: 12 / 14 / 16
    Map Type: Great Rivers / Acheron's Locks / Dante's Peak / The Lake of Fire / Infernal Divide / Random
    Place of Power: None / Rare / Uncommon / Common
    Game Length: 10 / 15 / 20 / 25
    Infernal Census : Yes / No
    Rectification Content : Yes / No

    Cheers, my future demon underlings!

    Just to clarify, have you guys some experience with the game? Personally, I have only dabbled a little bit with the single player game, but not for very long. Of course I have read the rules, but if there are any unbelievably important things one should consider (for example when creating your avatar), I would be happy to hear them. Don't want to be out of the game before it has even started. :)

    I've played a lot of single player, and done maybe 5 multiplayer sessions. I'm terrible at the game though, so don't worry about being singled out and annihilated.

    I have played some single player games. You just need to get the hang of the mechanics such as the resolution order of stuff (like, rituals get in effect on the next turn, not straight away).

    All right, we've got four, so we'll get started! Does everyone have a Dropbox account? It's been helpful with other PBEM games I've played, and it's free w/ registration. Send me a PM with your account name, and I'll add you to a shared folder once I get home from work tonight. If there are any objections, we can do it the new old-fashioned way via email.

    As for recommendations, I'm not really an expert at the game, but my experience has taught me that avatars should be built to really excel at one or two things rather than generalizing. (The consequence is that you have to push that advantage in game while hiding or minimizing your weaknesses.) That, and charisma is not a dump stat.

    Thanks for the suggestion Sky, I've sent X_kot a PM so hopefully I've caught him in time!

    We'd love to have you join us in Hell! Just PM me your Dropbox email, and I'll add you. Any preferences for the game parameters?

    No. I think we're fine as it is, 6 players is plenty and not extremely crowded.

    Nice work, all! Everyone's accounted for, so on we go.

    All Dropbox invitations have been sent, and game invite files have been placed in the shared folder. Place your named file in the \SoliumInfernumGame\_NewGameStarts\ folder and load the game, which will prompt you to select your avatar. When you're finished, transfer the new save file to the Dropbox folder.
