    Hey,

    That we are :beer: :lol:
    Downloaded & reading the tread. That is a must for
    this one.

    Which are game will you use? Rood or RoodMP?
    Rood has 10 Playable. Of course only 8 for MP play.
    RoodMP has only 4 playable :D tribes.

    i havent considered which version quite yet.

    i will see what happens in the next few days.

    meanwhile, Tar-Mithanga and Knutis = :wavey:
    kelzad, if it is possible to have 5 players, youre in.

    as im tight with time, ill only start this around friday.
    use this time to pick a tribe you like, and practice this game.
    it is necessary.

    If it's possible to use Rood (rather than RoodMP) for a game like this, I would recommend that as it would probably be better.

    If you let me have any feedback on the scenario from this game, that would be great. I haven't been able to test it as a MP scenario, so any ideas you have for improving it would be much appreciated. Have fun!

    we will let you know what happens, plotinus.

    i will know more later today, and will post my findings.

    Hey,

    I downloaded it from the links you posted Soul.
    Seems to run fine for me.

    If we play the Non-MP beware the Viking Raids
    & the Celtic Culture. ;)

    Rood will work I believe for MP. I looked it over.
    I'll take a random.

    The issue is now resolved and you should be able to download without any problems. Have fun!

    One idea: as I said, playing on the standard Rood rather than RoodMP would probably be better, if it's possible, but I suggest you turn off the Culture Victory condition. Having the possibility of the Irish getting a culture victory if you don't stop them is part of the fun of the single player game but it might prove a distraction in MP. Up to you though!

    thanks plotinus for sorting this out.

    i will remove the culture victory (unless the team objects?)

    downloading now, but will check only after work....
    expect some news in about 12 hours...

    Hey,

    No culture win for the Irish would make it
    more fun. Blood for the Pagan Gods!!!
