Field of Glory Empires MP Game New Thread.
« on: June 04, 2019, 12:10:26 PM »
Hi guys.

I am conscious my efforts to organise an epic MP game of Field of Glory  Empires starting a week after its release (release date will be announced next week) is taking up quite a bit of space on the Empires thread so it makes sense (and avoids upsetting Mods!) If I create a specific thread.

As of now all updates will be included on this thread.


We now have 14 victims (sorry.....I mean volunteers) as of 1900 hours GMT today which is brilliant.

I will fully update with a list of nations, players and other details in due course.

Any queries or further expressions of interest please post them here.

All the best

Ian

Don't suppose any kind soul will do an AAR of this match, should be a good read.

I will be doing an ongoing brief summary of events as viewed from the majestic throne room in Alexandria but for screenshots you may need to rely on the musings of other more "modern" rulers who have such a technical ability :-)

Please be aware that such reports are likely to have all of the journalistic integrity of CNN or Fox News (depending on your viewpoint) so some less objective rulers than myself may scurrilously challenge their accuracy.

These malcontents can be ignored.  O:-)

Sabaeans are yours Jason !

Now for me to track down where the help they are on the map 😁

Gaulish tribe ?

Edit : Jeez my geography is crap......just checked....Arabian peninsula 😂😂😂

That is ideal.....stops the Judeans having a free hand down there ! 😉

Will it be possible to have 10 or more players all playing in the same multiplayer game, or is there some behind the scenes work going on here by the GM to make this all work? Genuinely curious. This sounds like a fantastic idea, especially if it can all be done in house. Just wish I had the time to throw my name into the ring!

RECRUITMENT FOR THIS IS NOW CLOSED

We have 13 players with a really good geographical spread so all human players will find at least one other human player not far away  :D


These players are from a combination players using the Slitherine Forum and the Grogheads Computer gaming forum so I will be using both to keep in contact prior to the game start.

I am thinking of implementing a single house rule to ensure all players get a good run at the game and would appreciate feedback via a PM to me to see if other players agree..........

The proposal :

Human players can make co-operation treaties and non aggression pacts with other human players as well as agreeing to come to their military aid if they are attacked. However human players will not be allowed to join in offensive wars with other human players )...........................



My thinking is it will stop one player being ganged up on by several other human players who may have decided to parcel up their lands........(I know how nefarious wargamers are  :D )

I look forward to receiving any feedback (positive or negative) on this idea via PM.

Cheers

Ian

I will be able to confirm very quickly if it is possible but it is certainly designed to be able to do exactly that and I know some beta games are already ongoing doing exactly that !
