Following the completion of HotseatA - let's have another game

Rather than Retrofit, this time we plan to use the Kingdoms Grand Campaign Mod (KGCM) - it's a bit of a long-winded install (three files if I recall correctly) but should be interesting.

We'll use admin mode so that players can drop in and out easily and to allow us to skip turns if there's a long wait with no sub arranged - that would really have helped on HotseatA.

As for rules, the same all encompassing "don't cheat or exploit" applies as for HotseatA. The obvious parts of that are:
don't rerun your turn or parts of it to get a better result
don't crush agents with armies
don't park merchants in a fort over a resource
don't have a crusading general with no army at sea as a free-upkeep super-fleet
crusaders/jihadist should intend to go to the crusade target (visiting other places en-route is fine)

but broadly anything that feels like it shouldn't work isn't good.

Any thoughts on playing battles and difficulty settings? I'm up for M/M and autoresolve again but open to suggestions.
Autoresolve any battles against other human factions (and any battles with allied human armies unless permission is granted). M/VH difficulty settings to give more challenge in battles but not bias autoresolve (hopefully).

In terms of timing, if there's no word from a player for 5 days the turn gets played by the AI - the limit doesn't apply if you respond to email or have said in advance you need extra time. It would be good to arrange a sub if there'll be an extended absence though as the game could lose momentum

I'm going to be out of the country for a few days, it shouldn't cause much of a hold-up (a few days tops) or mean I can't access emails etc

Sent off, apologies for delay

If we can keep up with having our longest delay being 4 days we'll have a much better average speed than hotseatA ended up with

I trust the exams went ok

EoJ is temporarily indisposed - does anyone fancy a turn as sub for Spain

As in substitute you dirty people

Yes, sorry. I thought I'd have time Friday but alas I ended up with not one but two job interviews.

Are you planning on using your degree for the line of work you're applying for - or is this for a summer / intern position?

Stick it on AI for a turn, can't hurt.

The line of work for the summer is helping a department at uni submit their research off to the central grading authority, the REF, that'll then look at the quality of research at every uni and dish out money accordingly. Should be interesting- I even used TWH in my interview.

The garrison of Alexandria moved out into the desert to engage the army led by Jasper Werner at the city's port. Thinking that numbers alone would be enough they did not realize Werner had the support of Leeroy Jenkins leaving them broken and the city ripe for an assault.

Hey guys, I've decided to quit the hotseat due to a lack of interest on my part, other games have hooked me firmly away from TW. Hope you'll have fun in the game and may the most brilliant scheming madman win.

You can't say that civilization don't advance, however, for in every war they kill you in a new way.

Chauvinism is not a particularly nice trait at the best of times but can be suicidal when the person your talking too can have you executed on a whim.

Facebook, anyone?
