Default New MA game - Microless finished, congrats GFSnl

Crossposting from invision:

Hey. This is for anyone who would like to try a bit of an experiment with micro reduction by removing items from the game. There should be an increased emphasis on magic and national strengths. This has nothing to do with SCs and such being overpowered, it's just a fun little experiment.

Anyway, aside from the removal of items (all items) there will be no other changes. So, here's the proposed game settings:

Game info
Name - Microless
Schedule - 1st turn 48h, then 24h until players prefer 48h. And so on.
Players - 9
Nation Selection - First come first serve, no water nations
Diplomacy - Machiavellian. Trades are binding.
Map - A No Indy map to be determined after signups are finished.

Game Settings
Age - Middle Age
Independent Strength - Standard
Research - Standard
Magic Sites - Default
Money - Default
Resources - Default
Supplies - Default
Random Events- Default
Re-naming - On
Score Graphs - On
Hall Of Fame - 15
Mods: A modified version of CBM 1.92 which I will create.

Players:
1. Kestrel - Ermor
2. jimbojones1971 - Jotunheim
3. Korwin - Bandar Log
4. Ghoul31 - Marignon
5. Valerius - Vanheim
6. Maerlande - Pythium
7. GFSnl - Ogre Kingdoms
8. Snegir6 - Mictlan
9. AreaOfEffect - Machaka
10. Ossa - Shinuyama?

Mod can be found here!
And the map here
And the map image for anyone who needs it: Linky
Renamed copy of ogre kingdoms 1.0 - as well

Interesting. I'll give this a shot as Jotunheim, but only if I can be "Secret Ninja Player".

When you make your CBM variant, might be worth using the one Calahan made that fixes the Ettin site.

Getting magic diversity with no items, and no indies, will be most amusing. Are mercs allowed?

Aaargh, without MR boosting gear cannot resist the pull of an experimental game. With these settings I'm going to say blood magic ftw. Vanheim, please.

Btw, if a random event gives you a magic item can you use it? This would be a rare enough event that I think it would be cool if you could.

If mercs are allowed it would also be amusing to see the bidding wars that take place for the mages.

Also, if Wish is staying in the game what is the policy regarding wishing for magic items?

This is an interesting exercise. Of course it changes the balance of power between thugs/SCs and troops/mages but you also have to really think about which globals and summons are most important to you since you can't use items to bootstrap your way up.

It had occurred to me to try a game without any path boosters but this goes far beyond that. Should be fun.

Valerius - sure, if you find a magic item go ahead. Same with wishing. If you really want it that badly go ahead. And mercs are indeed allowed.

MA mod nations are also allowed.

Hmm, just how badly do I want the gate stone? Have to think that one over.

Thanks for organizing the game.

Btw, I think jimbojones1971 wanted to play Jotun.
