Hear ye, hear ye; Gentle(?)men, I am considering setting up a PBEM game similar to Nighthawk’s smart & very enjoyable “Triumvirate Uprising”. Same setup, 3 civ’s per player/no AI, only on a random map rather than Earth. The format is outstanding as far as reducing # of humans & increasing the pleasure of taking one’s time to manage 3 civ’s with each turn(!). FINAL RULES: LEVEL = Monarch MAP = Factual or Big-&-Small with islands*, Huge (6 players/18 civs), temperate, toroidal, low sea level (more landmass to play on but still separated by some ocean) CIVs/Leaders = Random. Play the civs & leader U R dealt, wherever they are (testing suggests that “teams” are nicely spread around map). MISC > Huts & Random Events > Barbs > Complete Kills > no tech or unit trading, gifting, or brokering outside of team > huts, events & quests > no city switching (cities can be switched due to culture, war, or peace settlement only) > use PBEM Tracker (thanks again guys are an excellent tool for all of us!) No longer open for discussion so as to attract PUNCTUAL, Polite, committed players. By “punctual”, I mean checking daily to see if it’s your turn & TAKING it. How long U ponder on each civ once downloaded matters little (& is the essence of why PBEM is so enjoyable). What slows these things down is the DAYS everyone has to wait for other players to take a few minutes (especially during early turns) to be POLITE & take their turn. Understanding we all have RL’s that cramp our gaming time to varying degrees. However, the players we seek are POLITE enough to let everyone else know when they can’t take their turn for x days. If a player is not POLITE & does not, they WILL BE replaced... sooner rather than later. “Empires are not created by those that cannot be honorably prompt & polite.” Sun Tzu KenWyn, “Art of Gaming”.
