I'm in two pretty big games right now... I'd love to play, but don't have the time!

I'll play! Pasha's an awesome host, so I'm surprised this game isn't full already.

I would suggest a crazy ending condition to top it, though: let's stop the moment Pasha holds Dom3 in his paws. (About 30+ turns, if we go three turns a week and the game ships in July.) That way no one need feel reservations about joining because s/he is waiting for the sequel, and as an additional bonus we avoid the nasty endgame, which seems to be a turn-off for some. Whoever has the most victory points or provinces or whatever at the time wins: research or gold might be more interesting, since VPs or provinces change owner's very easily, which might make the last few turns untowardly messy in an environment where the game is set to end at a certain time.

Another option would be trying out that hexmap from Ballbarian: I take it it's for four players which is the amount we have right now.

Ok! So, we have 4 players so far. If we get 4 more, then we could play on the Tyrande map. I've wanted to try it out for a long long long long long long long long long time!

Hmmmm... maybe Alneyan would play. It's a french map. So... he would kinda be on his home turf.

Yay! Stonebrow will be joining the game, too. His nation is TBA.

I like hot, even when I know it's not good for me. I'll take Ulm - I've never given them a serious shot.

Just to be sure, that's Heroes 1.3 and CB Pretenders 5.4?

I could be interested, but no nation strikes my fancy at present. Let's say Pythium if Shovah goes for Atlantis, or Caelum otherwise.

Ok! One slot left. (Dragonfire has decided not to play.)

I did not know that the mods have reached the level of Heroes 1.3 and CB Pretenders 5.4, but if those are the latest, then we should use them.

CB Pretenders 5.4 can be found here: Link

I am not sure where to find the latest Worthy Heroes Mod. I can find the link for version 1.2 here: Link 2

I am fine with using Heroes 1.2, but if someone knows where 1.3 is located speak up!

The Tyrande map can be found here: Link 3

Jurri: Where is the best place to find the latest version of your Banner Mod?

Thanks.

Pasha

Hey, I am sorry, but I am going to withdraw.

I really don't have time for another game, especially on a 24 hour hosting.

I guess 1.3 is "somewhat experimental" but it looks fine to me... Here's a link:
