    Another player does not bother me. After some thought on it I'm leaning towards no AI's.

    Then we should fill up all 8 slots.

    Classical Hero, find a Civ and name timezone, plus we need a last player to balance out the map. I am for all random map, and maxed out barbs.

    lurker's comment: I would play, but I don't have conquests. Looks like fun.

    Provo suggested ranked by timezone, but I would suggest that you alternate between European and US time zones as that will give you a better chance to get in 2 player turns each day.

    I'll be watching the progress. I hope that you each post propaganda in this thread as the game progresses.

    I think timezones make sense to plan after, but we need to see the nationalities of people
    involved to optimize the optimal logisitical management chain. And yes, I will not make a timezone doctrine on this :D

    My nation will be called "Provolutia"
    And my title - Provolt Imperator Dei

    Should the game thread be in the normal PBEM forum?

    we will be starting soon once i get Classical Hero's (if he's in) information.

    And yes, epic game random map,
    all victories, no regicide, ctf, princess, vp etc.
    Patch 1.22 (latest for C3C)
    Monarch

    I will probably have order as Americans going first (since I will be making and it'll be more convenient) then europeans.

    Formal/Noun/Adjective: I don't really care...we'll see what nation I will get.
    BTW: wouldn't you consider sorting the player the way as MOTH suggested? I think that could possibly speed up the game.

    Strict timezones are unlikely to work out perfectly because playing time also matters. If there are many people with highly variable play times then the idea of alternating hemispheres is an extremely good one.

    My best playing time windows are 1300-1330GMT and 0500-0700GMT, with the 2nd one (my night, Europe's morning) being more likely.

    Hadn't thought about the "name game" -- I'm one of the less inspired people who just take the defaults all the time. Just put David for the name and King for title I guess. :crazyeye: Oh, remembered something else -- if you change your tribe's name, does the game show who you're playing as?

    Hotmail is not working ATM, so I will post the save here. The game order has been made in the first post, so this is for Noldodan only! Please don't try to cheat and look at it.
