Default New Noob Game

Having just missed the last slot avalible in The Winnowing game i have decided to start a second noob only game. So if u have played 3 or less games and would like to play sign up below.

Server is up and running at:
IP: 67.190.105.206
Port: 2003

Map: Cradle of Dominion Map File
10 Players: No underwater or pop killing domain.
Starting Provinces: 1
Independant Strength: 7
Site Frequency: 55
World Richness: Rich
Random Events: Common
Score Graph: Enabled
Hall of Fame: 10
Research: Difficult
Mods: conceptual balancing 5.2 http://www.shrapnelcommunity.com/thr...?Number=383903

Mictlan = castigated
Ermor = Morkilus
T'ien Chi = Kissblade
Ulm = Kontraband
Caelum = Nah27
C'tis = Folket
Marignon = nihilistic
Abysia = DaMilano
Pangaea = Peacekeeper
Vanhiem = OG_Gleep


Please make only one race selection at a time to keep confusion to a minimum.

I am willing to host this game and run it though have never played multiplayer before so if there is another person signing up who would like to host instead that would be great, or if u know how to host and just have a little advice to send to me that would be good also.

i think i technically have 5mp games under my belt. and i made it into the other noob game. but i'll play Mictlan if you let me

as far as hosting goes, the two things to consider (as i understand it) are:
1) can you be online for the duration of the game (many months). if not, a PBEM (play by email) game may be better.
2) are you behind a router? if so, you will need to know how to forward the ports from that router to your computer.

let me know if you want me to play or not, i won't be hurt if you say no.

THx m8 for the tips, i suppose 3 games may have been a bit to restricting so sure u can play, as for the tips, i am behind a router but i got a few net working friends who can tell me the port forwarding stuff, and as for needing the machine to run non stop though my machine does run non stop i cant garantee that there wont be ocasional drop off's so i think PBM would be best.

it is probably best to wait a week or so before we start this, because on the other noob game, we're really tight, so i bet at least 3-4 people will drop/die quite quickly. then they will probably be interested. i'd keep the thread open, though, so people can join up as they die, or whenever they feel like it.

also, if you want, i can host a pbem game if you want to organize it. i'll make up a new email address just for the game, that i will release closer to the time.

or you can host if you want, up to you.

I'd like to play if it starts this Sunday or later. Let me know if you want to start sooner and I'll bow out. I'd like to try Ermor (BE) or Abysia, though I'm flexible.

i _strongly_ suggest everyone picks ONE race. this will avoid the confusion we had in the other noob game. if you can't pick one race, don't post until you can
