CyborgKillerMonster and Reverend Zombie,

I indirectly know of or have played with everyone who's signed up for this game so far except for the two of you. I'd like to verify that you meet my requested standard of having roughly 5-15 MP games. I'd prefer if this game not be unduly imbalanced by having someone who knows the ins and outs of Dominions 3 less well than everyone else.

Thanks, and no offense intended.

I played pretty regularly 5 or so years ago (definitely in the 15+ MP game range). So I know the mechanics of the game very well; I'm still learning my way around the changes made in the current version of CBM.

All right then, welcome aboard Reverend Zombie.

I'm going to tentatively remove CyborgMonsterKiller until we hear from him.

Note that are a lot of bad starting positions on this map by default. Is there an improved version ou t there?

Hi. We used a modified version of this map in the Battleground game. That version removed most water provinces and the eastern continent. That may not be what you want but LDiCesare did a nice job choosing fixed start locations on the main continent so you may want to take a look at that.

Actually I already made a list of provinces with less than 4 land neighbours from in the original (about 30 or so, several with only 2 neighbours). I have an edited map-file with #nostart for those. We could use it if we want to avoid poor resource starts - my Palankashas would vote for it!

Haven't touched the water provinces though, make a suggestion if we want to avoid some of them as a start for water nation.

I have no objection to using vargr's modified map with provinces that have few adjacencies being nostart provinces. I'm a little hesitant to use an edited version that has the entire eastern continent as #nostart, as that will make it a real knife fight on the main continent. mockingbird, as the only water nation thus far, do you have any thoughts on water province starting locations?

I'm also fine with changing the map, if that's a popular idea.

Also: 2 spots still open!

A lot of the water provinces look bad as a starting location to me. We could easily have Atlantis right next to a coastal start of another nation. Perhaps the area around the north-east islands would be the best?

I definitely am in favor of removing bad starting locations for Atlantis (as well as for all other nations).
