I have two versions of the Riverlands map that I did for a game last year. They have fixed starts for either 13L+1W or 12L+1W (I think the former fits this game). I also modded the map to change the 2 province island to water provinces, otherwise the water nation is really struggling.

But I won't post the map yet until you decide if you are either having VP marked capitals, or revealing the capital locations before the game starts. As if no to both, I will just post the image file that you will need to play the game, and upload the .map file to the llamaserver for you to use (as you do not need the .map file to play games on the llamaserver). As if I do this then nobody will know where other players capitals are until you find them in game (which some players prefer). If you are revealing caps or having them marked with VP's though, then I'll just attach the map and image file to a post, as it won't make much difference if players know the cap locations pre-game in that case.

I think at present, leaving out the VPs is advisable, since the goal is to promote intelligence gathering, and the sharing of intelligence. I'd like to hear everyone else's thoughts on this, however.

Hello!

First time here. Only 2 MP games played.

I'll be your 14th player with C'tis, please!

Sorry Cerlin, you were just beaten by Vishniac. Some other time, eh?


As for the splitting of the map/img files and the fog of war, I'd like to hear back from more people, but thus far no one seems to have objections (and I personally favor it). Giving it another 24 hours.

I agree on no VP.
Less information -> More paranoia -> All senses alert -> Try to play better
(Though I might get stuck in the paranoia part )

I would like to c a bit higher turn interval. With QH enabled, its still pretty fast, but allows a little bit more space for a player to manage his/her personal time and strips some early extension hassles. Can we consider having 36H in the beginning, and 48H no later than from turn 20?
