    i guess each should pick a nation?

    edited:

    we dont want to have an over powerful nation anywhere, so lets vote on an ERA UU?
    id say go for a AA UU.

    id like greeks, followed by babylon.

    There's little details, so I take it this will be a diplomatic free-for-all, no locked factions, random map ?

    you have guessed correctly.
    though i would like players to be honourable ;)
    no triple alliances against the weaker one, ok?
    but if youre that weak, feel free to have an MPP in place.

    are you in?
    ofcourse you are :D

    I'm a an 8-man game right now and it's undesireably slow - not that I could be more active but still ;)

    So that's four of us, reputation is sacred, "standard" epic sounds good.

    Now
    -map details
    -civs
    -AI's
    -all AA UU's ?

    Map doesn't matter too much for me, although with AA UU an archi would be awfully in favor of the byz, so I'd rule archi out. Rest is cool with me at random or if anyone has preferences, and I vote for barbs being in (raging :mischief: ) - some at least.

    I'd like no AI, and will go for a civ once we're settled on a map type.

    ok, bef.
    thats 4 of us (unless the few ive asked care to join)

    agree, no BYZ. or other overpowerful nations.
    no need to focous on AA UU ones neither.
    pick anything you want.

    everyone:

    no AI. just us 4(?)

    map: continents, 70%. all others random?
    barbs: :rockon: raging of course!

    i will open up an email account for the save to travel through.

    EDIT - opened up a box. see post 1.
    do we what to pass it on to each other or to the team box?

    Alright, I'd like to play Mayas, Iroquois, Egypt and France - in that order but really pretty much equally - so if you guys want to pick them too it's perfectly fine, I'll take whichever is left. France has a MA UU so it's cool if you'd rule it out, too.

    Email bolducf at gmail dot com.

    Other details defined at pleasure by the maker.

    EDIT: This being "Mind, Body & Soul", you being Soul, I call the "&"

    Title: Ampersand
    Name: &
    Formal: Punctuation
    Noun: Mayans (or French, or whichever I actually am - so the confusion has a limit)
    Adjective: Additive

    Sorry for being late. I was hoping to play England.

    Anything else is fine with me, though I wouldn't mind a piar of AI's to make more civs in.

    Good thinking on the common email, that should make things go around easier.

    I think for the sake of fairness that we should have someone tweak the starting spots to common grounds; a plain without river start would be awful for anyone. Does anyone know any willing mapmaker for the minimal job? I'd do it myself but this wouldn't be proper since I'll be playing the darn thing.

    I'll ask around at CDZ.

    Tribute desires to help with the evening of the starts. Note that he is referring to himself in the 3rd person not because someone else is controlling him. No.

    Sorry, I can't play for reasons stated in a Private Message. But I'm willing to help you all.

    Sounds great :D

    Injun, what civ did you want? And anything else we miss out for Tribute to work his magic?

    Edit: Soul, it would be awfully nice if the language setting on the gmail was in latin alphabet or something :love: unless you 3 are from arabic countries, which I'd understand ... though I wouldn't understand the writings still.

    Nope but you will need to change the CD to play either of them.

    I play PBEMs in both games with no problem whatsoever.

    Good luck !

    ok.
    these are the settings and nations.
    PM sent to tribute.

    this is basically the final order of things.
    please discuss changes, if any ASAP.

    tribute, will you make this happen saturday?

    order of players will be:
    soul_warrior (gmt+2)
    PRAETORIAN (gmt+2)
    blaze us timezones
    tar us timezones
    BEF us timezones

    WORLD details:
    world: random climate, continents70%.
    barbs: raging.

    nations: took the first option you chose.
    so far:
    BEF, Mayas
    Blaze, Ottoman
    Tar, england
    Soul, greece
    PRAETORIAN, germany


    BEFORE tribute starts us off, we are agreed on no AI?
    i would like to add AI (will make this tighter) if were to make this a standard size map.
    otherwise make it a small world?
    equal number civs per continent?

    nation details: use this template (thanks BEF)
    another note:
    * honorable rules, yes?
