    So a short game this time? I think if we go with 10 tokens, we should take a smaller map size, as to force people into fights. Alternatively, more tokens (15?) and a bigger map. I like the random map setting, as it will prevent meta-gaming with the avatar creation.

    So my opinion:

    Either a short game:
    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,

    or a medium length game:
    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.

    I'll create my avatar tonight and submit it once I've got all the horns and orifices sorted out.

    Edit: Changed my vote for Infernal Census for the shorter game.

    Hmm trying a smaller shorter map could be fun!

    I'd vote for:

    Map: 12
    Type: Random
    PoP: Rare (Again to encourage scraps)
    Game Length: 15
    Infernal Census: Yes
    Rectification: Yes
    Steam: Sarigs Origin: Sarisan

    Looking at the votes I'm generating and uploading the following

    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
    Kittens: Yes / No

    Note, the map randomisation will be resolved by coin toss And I made my Avatar already so I wont be able to benefit from my foreknowledge. Expect a dense game with lots of conflict and messy borders. Kittens waste too many order slots with chezeburgr meme pictures and drag the game down. I'm opting for infernal census despite knowing little about its implementation but really I can see this stop the game grinding to a halt when people 0 out of prestige.

    No worries, over here at Castle Evil we fill the spare kittens with chezeburgrz and put them away for rainy days. I also have no idea about how infernal census can affect a short game on a small map, but I guess the best way to find out is to give it a try.

    Later when we're uploading our turns, it is also important to choose the correct file for the upload. You'll want to upload the ".trn"-file, not the savefile. I learned the hard way. ;) It's also really helpful to check the message you get when you're done with your turn and click the "end turn" button. It tells you when you have forgotten something, like responding to a message or paying upkeep costs (some legions require that).

    I'd also like to make a small request to use the in-game messaging system for any plans between hellspawn. In my opinion, the one turn delay adds a lot to the experience.

    I am willing to try, but I feel that the way the conspiracy can sweep into your wider life can be key.

    And you know that once someone rolls into Panadeomium that all bets will be off in terms of conduct.
