Default Want to see what a multiplayer game is like?

Do you want to see what a multiplayer game is like? But you dont want to look foolish or have to explain your choices? You just want to check it out and look?

Well here is your chance. We need a substitute player in the newbie-newbie game "Stacked in your Favor". The nation is Middle Age Vanheim. It is still early game and you do not seem to have any contact yet with neighbors.

The bad news is.... even though the game was posted as not using any mod files, it seems that the this player created their pretender god with some mod turned on. So to the game it looked as if that player had cheated. The game downgraded the pretender to a mounted Arch Mage with no magic, but he did still get his scales.

The good news is.... you have ready-made excuses if you play badly. You can play without concern for your ego. Go wild. Be a surprise. Have fun. No matter what you do it will be better than us having to turn the Vanheim nation into an AI player.

Shouldn't this be in the MP forum?

I thought about that.
But Im purposely seeking someone who has not yet quite decided to play in MP games, but is abit curious about it.


I should add that if anyone is interested in this, if you email gandalf at community.net then I can give you the address and password to get in and start playing Vanheim

OK we are back again.

Apparently MA Vanheim and MA Ulm have both staled 3 times in a row.

So if anyone is interested in seeing what an MP game is like without having to worry about whether or not you do it well.

email gandalf at the community net

I tried clicking on your link, but I got error "Could not perform this operation because the default mail client is not properly installed."

I think this is because I have a PC, everyone with Macs says they just work. Never mind.

That went nice and fast. And Im pleased to have gotten a couple of on-the-fence people to try MP.
