Hi Guys:

Any way I can get into the game. I am very new (i.e., I have no idea what I am doing, except that I like it).

Are you playing one turn per day? (That's good for me. I need time to think. Ha.)

PashaDawg we have to put you down for maybe right now. I need to know first how many players is good for Karan...I think I have read 8-10...can I get a confirmation? If Karan is good for 10 people then you would be the 10th spot.

I also need to get confirmation from starwarsluke and tannath if they are playing. Just need a yes or no right now from you guys...can pick a nation after we get settings decided on.

So far Boron wants Pythium, Klatu I know wants Man again, I would like to try Abysia but that is if Tannath isn't using it. And everyone else who has confirmed they are playing haven't picked a nation but some are waiting for settings to be posted first.

hmm.. Aran has LESS provinces but is a 8-10 map.. but would be good to confirm anyways.

I've been practising SP with Caelum, so I'd like to play that if available..

In our current game starwarsluke is caelum, havent confirmed yet if he wants to play this 2nd game and if he is then is he keeping caelum.

I just need confirmation from Tannath and Starwarsluke to move on with confirming nations.

I sent a pm to Tannath and Starwarsluke to post in here about playing because now that I think about it Klatu can host for us anytime. So like if we are set with nations and players picked, settings all agreed, and pretenders uploaded we can start as soon as that is all done. I don't see a reason to wait until next weekend to start it if we can get ready in a few days.

I am playing 4 games and another is going to start tomorrow (the Battlefield tournament), it takes too much of my time if I play another game. Sorry. Good game.

Hey,

I am a newbie, never having played even one MP game as yet. Is there still some room in this newbie game? As for a nation, I don't know enough to pick one, so I will just take whatever is left over.

Cheers

Ok no problem Tannath, there are always future games.

I am going to list who we have so far.

Aku - Abysia
Klatu - Man
Boron - Pythium
Pickles - Undecided
Drool - I think Ulm(let me know on this)
Starwarsluke - No confirmation yet
Alexi - Caelum if luke doesnt play or keep caelum
PashaDawg - Undecided
Panther - Undecided

That is 9 players...8 if Starwarsluke drops. I say we keep this lineup and work on getting nations but need settings first before people want to choose nations. Here is my proposal.

Number of starting provinces: 1
Stength of Independents: 6
Special Site Frequency: 50
World Richness: Normal
Random Events: Common
Score Graphs: Disabled
Hall of Fame: 15
Standard Research
Standard Victory
Renaming is Allowed

24 hour Quickhost

Map is Karan

Link to Karan. (there were 3 links to click and that was only one that let me download, unzip it to your map folder)

http://ulm.illwinter.com/dom2/karan.zip

Also do not worry about it being first time in MP because everyone here is new to MP. Either this is their first game or they are in the middle of their first game.

If I get some approvals for the settings then consider it confirmed and pick your nations.

Alexi choose a secondary nation just in case starwarsluke is playing because he has caelum picked if he is playing.

I checked out the map of Karan just now it is 162 provinces with 20 being in the water. The water provinces were almost all connected so it is an option to play a water race if you like.

Our current Aran game has 7 people and thats like 106 or something provinces so if we got 1 nation as water I say we could have a 10 player game. We have 9 people already is starwarsluke plays and if everyone picks land nations then if a 10th person wants to join it has to be as water. If Luke drops then we have 2 open spots, you get the idea. And only opened for us newbie players. Newbie as in none or very little MP experience, having a lot of SP experience is no problem because players are different than AI. Main goal of this is to get used to how real people play like.

"Our current Aran game has 7 people and thats like 106 or something provinces so if we got 1 nation as water I say we could have a 10 player game."

Karan certainly works with 9 to 11 though, as I expect with any map, some starts are better than others.

"We have 9 people already is starwarsluke plays and if everyone picks land nations then if a 10th person wants to join it has to be as water. Main goal of this is to get used to how real people play like. "

I will put down for R'lyeh then but if someone else wants R'lyeh, or Atlantis for that matter, I am happy to switch. Man is first reserve but again I am not wedded to it.
