    Sure. I'm in.

    Some things to consider:
    - Which version to use (LNP would be the obvious choice)
    - Limiting the max. amount of players?
    - how long we wait for a player to submit his turn
    - when to allow save-scumming

    etc.

    no need to start a new one - the original is still out there. It's in limbo at the moment on Khyrses's computer, but if he won't step up and take his go I'm sure we can find the previous save and you can go from there.

    I spent a lot of time and effort doing an epic poem, and I don't intend for it to be lost.

    I'd given up but it looks like President Weasel is made of sterner stuff. The poem was epic.

    I'd be willing to join again, whether you start a new or continue on RockPaper the Fire-Bow.

    EDIT: I won't be online again until July 5.

    OK, here's the plan.

    1) whoever wants first go makes a google doc for the list of names and puts their name first
    2) link the doc here
    3) whoever else wants a go adds their name to the list. If there are dates you can't make, put that on the list - eg "Norskov (can't play until July 5th)"
    4) once there's a list, I'll get hold of the latest save game I can find, and give it to the first person.
    5) fun and profit.

    Perchance we should drag the storytelling work that's already been done onto this forum for posterity, if we're gonna continue RockPaper the Fire-Bow

    Right, let me get some Google Docs created and I'll put them both here and in the first post. (What is this editing witchraft of the new forums!?)

    Edit: Done. I've created a doc that includes both an empty list of places for people to go (the 10 empty slots are placeholders, they can be removed or added as necessary) and all of the write ups from the old thread in shiny new formatting so as to make them easy(er) to follow and read. Also, if you check the first post, you'll notice I've used my internet devil magic to create a frame showing the document in its current form. Theres also a link to the conventional document editing page. If when you're editing you could keep the same style as the rest of the document (Heading 3 for main titles, Heading 4 for subtitles, with horizontal lines [check the insert menu] to separate sections) then I wont hate you too much.

    Here's the entry on the DF map archive, last entry from Spring 256.

    I put myself in for the third spot but can go further down the line if someone want's to have an earlier go.

    Good work, sir Egg. I'd forgotten how good some of those were.

    I believe Latterman's save can still be found at http://www.mediafire.com/?y66ks03wfwo8ldt

    We have to restart with your save. We had Captain "I can't open a zip file" arseing us about for about a year and a half of incompetence, and then we had Khyrses take some of his go and then vanish. Yours (since I am assuming you're Latterman - hello Latterman! Your writeup made me laugh) is the last save we have.

    The next thing to do I guess is to recruit some more [s]victims[/s] players and then assign an order. Personally, I'd quite like some time to continue to practice in my save, so I'd rather not be first. I say this because the first two attempts I've had, I've killed everyone in less than a year. Hmm.

    *Bump* Heard about this earlier. Could be interesting. Then again it could be terrible.

    At first glance that ranks an "Interesting but kinda pointless" for me. I'd prefer to run it locally and use tilesets m'self.

    May I suggest we actually get the ball rolling on this thing? I've trimmed the list accordingly.
