For those that do not know me, I was once a regular contributor and moderator of the Democracy Game forums here at CFC. I really haven't been too active here since around 2007 but have recently regained interest in Civ4, especially Pitboss games.
For the last 6 months, I had taken over the Apolyton team in their Intersite Demogame (though I ended up playing solo for my entire tenure). Indiansmoke was on the PAL team, as well as a current game we are playing at Poly, so I'm sure he can vouch for my reliability in playing the turns. One thing I will tell you is that I consider the early game to be the weakest part of my playing style, so I intend to be very active in discussions. I will also take direction from those who are more familiar with this ladder-style type of game --- these will be totally new waters for me!
I look forward to playing with you all and peeling off another layer of this wonderfully versatile game.
