I have seen this discussed here a few times, and purchased it recently. I think some others might as well. If there is enough interest, I could start a PBEM game on llamaserver. Info on llamaserver can be found here.

Newbie--5 or fewer MP games. Can be adjusted if needed if there is not enough interest.

Early Age

Vanilla, no mods.

Diplomacy-keep your word, but everyone starts off at war.

Game name: Elementalists

Map Hieronica. Download map here

Players.

wonderloss - Pangea

ElanaAhova - Yomi

LordXia - Tien Chien

louist - Arcoscephale

EmersonPF - Abyssia

Kamamura_CZ - Hinnom

Thranite - Agartha

igorCRO - Marverni

ReuelKB - Lanka

ghostwes - Ermor

It would not surprise me if it takes that long to get setup, so no problem waiting. I will put you on THE LIST.

I'm in, though I don't "technically" have internet at the moment. I have a mickey-mouse setup that gives me enough of a connection for forum browsing, but not enough for dedicated play. Come May 4th, I'll have it fixed.

 

Edit: I just noticed I don't have Dom3 installed on this comp at the moment. I'll have to see if I brought my disk with me or if the movers put it in storage. (I'm between houses at the moment... sold ours, and don't get possession of the one we've bought until the end of summer )

I would love to join!  I love Dominions, but I mostly play single player, and usually don't get much beyond 20 or so turns.  I've only ever played one MP game before, and I was the first one eliminated, so I think I still count as a newb.

I sign up. It's just what I've been waiting for, I love the lore of the game tremendously, but I have never delved into the actual strategies to raise above the newbie level. I have enough time for this. 

Question - if any player surrenders, is he replaced by AI?

What will be the frequency of moves? I propose one move per day.

louist, you do not need much of a connection for PBEM. You need to be able to send and receive a couple of emails per day. Turn files are small.

 

Initial turn frequency will be 24 hours. It will be increased at turn 30 to 48 hours (sooner if needed).

 

If someone is losing, I would prefer they fight to the end. If they are down to a fort and no provinces and want to go AI, that is fine. If someone decides this is not for them, I would like to get a sub. We could probably recruit from the Dominions forums if necessary.

 

I would like to have 8-10 players for this game. It seems like a good size that allows for diplomatic options without being to large and unmanageable at the end.

I'll play. I've only played singleplayer before and I'm sure I'll get conquered quickly.

Don't count yourself out, abomination5. One reason I am starting this here is to get people with hardly any experience. I am currently 14 turns in another multiplayer game, and that is the extent of my experience other than some mucking about in SP.

Be sure to check the OP. I have been modifying things a bit.

When you decide on your top three nations, go ahead and send a PM.

ElanaAhova, when will you be available?

Just PMed my choices.

Any sense of when we'll be kicking off on this?

I'd love to join, but that game is just too damn confusing for me to play effectively. Granted, apparently I was a water fountain in the last (and only) game I played, so what do you expect?

Quoting EmersonPF,

It might be a couple of weeks, if we wait for ElanaAhova. I did not realize this would get a response this fast. If we get a couple more confirmed players, I can start assigning the nations and people can start submitting Pretenders.

Quoting LightofAbraxas,

This is a good opportunity to learn. I doubt any of us will be playing all that effectively either.

Yea, I suck.  Trust me.  Come join, we will all be just fumbling around.

 

We have to wait for Elana, she's awesome.

PM with nation choices sent!

For myself, I have no problem waiting a couple weeks if we need to do so.  I'd rather everyone who wants in gets a chance to play, then have someone miss out.

I've got a lot of SP games under my belt, but every time I've played multiplayer, I've lost. Should be fun

I have always been interested in this game. How large are the maps and how many people in one game?

I am not sure what the max is, but I am targeting 8 - 10 people. I am planning to have 13-16 provinces per person. Maps can get much larger.

I've finally got my copy installed, so I'm definitely in.

I vote for waiting for Elana as well.

Hopefully we can get the nations assigned sooner, though, so we (or I, anyway, since I need all the help I can get) can start playing around with some strategy ideas in SP.

Well, we have enough now. Once the remaining players get their top three nation pics in, I can start assigning. There is still room for additional players.

Ahhh, looks like I'm a bit late.  If there's still room, I'd like to join.  Otherwise, I'll wait for a new game if one comes about.

Not too late. However, I am capping it off at 10 so you are the last two. Anyone else will be added as an alternate, in case someone backs out, or a potential sub, should someone be unable to finish.

Everyone get your top 3 pics in!
