    Hell is other people

    Calling for overlords to reign over Hell!

    What we can offer you:
    • nice, pleasing to the eye grey landscapes that continue forever at all directions
    • pleasant working space
    • co-workers who will inspire you to do your best
    • challenges beyond your wildest dreams

    What we require of you
    • devious mind
    • hunger for power
    • thirst for vengeance
    • love of foul play


    So, it's been quite some time since my last time playing SI (it was during the release of the first betas of Retrification) and since the old AAR couldn't get finished because of the game coming to a stall for various reasons I'd like a new try on it, naturally using the latest and finest version of expansion and such. I'd also write a new AAR based on what happens during this game, if that would be okay for you gents. Truth be told, I'd actually like you to also write your thoughts during the game.

    The pace of the game would probably be one turn every 2-3 days, but in the beginning probably a turn or two per day. Personally, I'm not a fan of too fast paced PBEM-games, so there's that. And as is the standard (or at least I think so), turns would be distribed via Dropbox (or email if you don't want to use Dropbox for some reason).

    And yeah, that's about it. 5 more people needed, let's do this.

    [E] Also, any wishes on what map to use, size, rules etc etc, you know the drill


    Players:

    • Jarvis
    • Tikey
    • Antares
    • carnage4u
    • Rotekian
    • me, obviously

    I'll happily be listed as a reserve but as a player in 2 running games I wouldn't want to deprive anyone else of a slot.

    Okay, listed and reserved. I don't think any of us are in any particular hurry so let's wait if we can find more players via RPS forums.

    Why of course. So, if Heliocentric wants and can handle one more game we'd have a game assembled.

    How many people are you missing before we can get the invites kaira? do we need to open up a slot or two for new people to join?

    Solium Infernum administrator pro tip:
    The new players only need to put their invite in the new game start folder, not the save file, or worry about creating a folder. Indeed, it's the one time the other players don't need the save.

    Sorry for the hold up, I've been a tad busy lately. Invites should be up any minute now.

    Map size normal, great rivers, uncommon PoPs, normal length.

    I don't want to mess with dropbox while at work, but I've seen your message, Kaira.
    You'd think I'd now how to do this stuff after playing 3 games already, but clearly I am more evil than smart, and ought to get a minion to handle this stuff for me. I'll try again in a couple hours' time, sorry for the delay.

    Right, don't know if people follow the chat.txt in folder, but anyway, might be worth reiterating here: laptop refuses to host the game for some reason so we start on Sunday evening or on Monday, depending on when I'll get back to home.

    And the new turn is on Dropbox, if people haven't noticed. Interesting map layout to say the least.

    cool.

    Yeah.. that map layout had me a bit terrifed (who knew the layout of hell could be frustating) . For some reason the game put me in a corner (of rivers) , and almost had me blocked in by another player Howerver I have plans on dealing with them :) At least the nearest PoP is only about 5 turns away. (lol) - I'm excited to see how the first 10 or so turns go.
