Default The Winnowing - DaMilano wins!!

New to dominions? Want to play an MP game but worried about getting slaughtered by bloodthirsty veterans? Well, here is your chance! This game is being hosted in response to the desires of new players to get some experience against players of the same skill level. It will be a pretty basic game so that players have the ability to make mistakes and experiment. So noobs, come one, come all and try your hand at dom2 MP. See if you are skilled and daring enough to survive The Winnowing!!

House Rules
1) Only new or newer players allowed (no hardcore veterans)
2) No water nations unless BOTH water nations are selected
3) No population-killing dominion themes (Ermor AE/SG, Pan CW)

Since this game is for newer players and it might be your first time using a mod, I will give some instructions. Before you go about designing your pretender, you must install the CB 5.2 mod. To do this, first download the zipped mod file from the link I've given above. Then, unzip the files into your dom2/mods directory. Once you have done that, run dom2 and go under Preferences->Mod Preferences and select Conceptual Balance 5.2. When this is complete, you will be ready to make your pretender.

What map are we playing? Or will you decide that later?

In order of preference, I'd like 1 - Jotunheim 2 - Machaka 3 - Marignon, but I'd be willing to play pretty much anyone but Mictian or Atlantis.

The map is Aran, which I think came with the game.

Yep, it is Aran, as I listed in the initial post. It is not the best map but it does come with the game. I played my first games on it so I figure it will work well for you guys.

Hey, everyone. I've been lurking on this forum for awhile. I'm in for the game!

I'd guess I'll give Man a try! Bards for the win, hopefully!

I would like to join with Machaka. I do not know if I am a new player. I have played MP games three times.

If only one person wants to play a water nation I could play the other.

Both the Watcher and I are about that, so welcome aboard, i say!

also, how are we running this?...24 hour quick host?

i am also all for allowing master password, and having you and/or QM (or anyone else who's bored, and not playing) look at what we're doing, and criticize

Sounds very intresting to have people watching our moves. I would prefer TCP/IP with 24 hour QH.

I also think I have changed my mind, I would like to play Pangea now.
