A gentlemen's game
I'm thinking of starting a new game with some special rules. To start the game field would look something like this (Props to helio for the format):
Map Size: 12 / 14 / 16
Map Type: Great Rivers / Acheron's Locks (Random number generator has spoken) / Dante's Peak / The Lake of Fire / Infernal Divide /
Place of Power: None / Rare / Uncommon / Common
Game Length: 10 / 15 / 20 / 25
Infernal Census : Yes / No
Rectification Content : Yes / No
The idea is to play with a custom rule (not game enforced obviously): No excommunications. With the only exception of an event based xcom.
This means no taking panda, so it would be a pure prestige race. Common pops and small map would mean more battles for them. Expect a lot of deceit, high ranks and political intrigue. Playing for keeps will become quite important.
We need three other players.
Tikey (Emperor Zurg)
Battleprogrammer Spike (Ashaka)
Raptor_X (Marquis Zabrahxx)
Rinox (Who could he be?!)
Kelron (Mr Percy)
Lacessit (Mephisto's cat)
Intruiging. Sign me up! You have my e-mail right?
If I didn't I cant find it anywhere. Send it to my by pm.

You guys make this game seem very interesting.
I noticed theres a demo. Would I be able to use that to try out the network play? Also I don't mean to hi-jack the thread so sorry about my intrusion
This sounds fun, sign me up.
Awesome, only one place left.

About half the legions, praetors, relics and artifacts found in the full game.
So sadly you won't be able to try the network play :-/
Whoooo, no excoms, that'd be a nice change! I'd love to play if you'd have me!
And we're full. Wow that was quick!
Lacessit send me your email by pm. It might take me a while to start the game. I'll try to get it done tonight though.
its amazing how fast these things fill up. I am to slowly lately, although the No excommunications doesn't seem like fun :)
That's kinda like your thing. You need a catchphrase to go with it.
its like playing ping pong but only being allowed to use the handle of the paddle to me, I'll be intrigued to see how it turns out.

The game is a great success. It's very very fun and starting around turn 25?? or so i've never seen so many demands/insults every single turn in any other game i've been in. Pretty much everyone started running infernal negotiations simply because of the sheer amount of demands and insults every turn that never stops.
Things i noted from such a game.
(a) You will see certain rituals such as negotiations etc get a lot more use.
(b) Curses are a lot more useful. I've made life miserable for everybody with diabolism curses and the mirror of obsession.
(c) Demands and insults and warring are much more prevalent.
(d) Having a good praetor dueler is a lot more useful.
Pretty sure u guys will have fun.
FYI: Invites are in the dropbox folder. Happy hunting.
Glad I didn't take slothful..
I'm Mr Percy, by the way.
Turn's up! No repeated avatars, that's nice.
It's full of pops. This will be interesting.
I'm Emperor Zurg
I feel this game is not going to have a slow build up before the demands start flying.
Panda in the four corners to show how the map loops.
