    +++ GAME IS FULL & STARTED +++

    Jahhy, Mitiu Ioan and myself want to start a new PBEM.
    It's going to be a epic game, played on a continents-based map, and a C3C v1.22 game. Difficulty is set on emperor.

    Because we're all newbees, we're looking for at least 1 experienced player to set up the game, and maybe give some advice.

    Players:
    1. Redman - Egypt
    2. Jahhy - Persians
    3. Bathsheba666 - Russians
    4. Qummik - Romans
    5. Kwibus (has replaced azzaman333) - Mayan
    6. Calis (has replaced Classical_hero) - Iroqious

    The max is 5 players, so who's interested?

    Since you've got an experienced player, would you mind another noob on board?

    If so, sign me up. I'll be the Russians.

    OK! Thanks for signing in!
    I'm happy we've completed the playerlist so soon! :)

    So at this point we've to discuss some details:
    - size map
    - others settings of the map and the game: water/land, victorysettings, barbarians..
    - Jahhy and Mitiu Ioan need to choose a 'tribe'
    - the things i'm forgetting.. ;)

    What should be the difficultylevel? Regent or Monarch?
    I vote for Regent because 4 of 5 are new in the business.

    About the mapsize I would say: at least mediumsize.
    Water/land: 40% / 60%
    All victorysettings on? I don't like the victorypoints, so that should be off.
    Barbarians: raging?

    Regent sounds good to me.

    Other than that, I'd leave the other settings up to Classical Hero. As the experienced one, he'd probably know what settings are best.

    I would go for Emporer as the game level. ;) At worst we can play Monarch. All we need to know is what percentage of land we want. I would prefer to have 60% land so that we can get as much land as possible. Since we only have five players I think it is best that we have have a small size map. I can get a map made over at another site, see my sig for that site, if you want. That way we can get a balanced map if you want. Also we should post our tmezones so we can get the game flowing properly. You can find this infomation in my location. I think that is all we need right now.

    altough emperor seems a bit rough.. if it's possible i'd go with monarch level.

    I think I'm capable to play Monarch, haven't played Emperor, but we can try :bounce:
    Small map looks indeed more suitable for 5 players. If you have a nice one, we'll play that one.
    My timezone is GMT+1.

    Still nothing from Mitiu Ioan. I vote for killercane.
    If he can give us his timezone and his prefence, we can take this game to the start.

    Classical_hero: have you already selected a boiling map for us?

    If you think playing at emporer is hard, try playing at Demi-God which two of my PBEMS are on.
