    Well, Ginger_Ale and myself are getting the wheels moving. We've been e-mailing each other and PMing the needed people. Right now, the only brick wall I can see is the lack of players. At least seven per team will probably be needed before we can start polling game options.

    I don't think I will have a problem getting a team together. Four of us so far.

    I'll go on any team that needs people, so to keep things even all around.

    No reason to set a lower limit on number of people in a team -- though obviously it wouldn't be a team if only one played... ;)

    The teams haven't been constructed yet but you're with me kiddo. I have pms to a number of people so if I get 10-12 back maybe we can break up into 2 teams. So far we have 5 on our team. Soul Warrior, Pentium, Darwin420, Iroquios Plisken and "lil old me.

    Well, I had envisioned four teams of people. I was hoping to get at least seven per team before we got started.

    I suspect more will join as we get the game started. No reason to believe that the average of 5 per team we have now wouldn't do.

    The most important question is, have you lined up a mapmaker? After the examples of the 2 inter-site games, I can't imagine anyone who wouldn't want balanced starts.

    mad-bax is away on vacation iirc, or he hasn't posted.

    I will post a map request at CDZ - those guys are expert mapmakers - once we decide on settings.
