    Default Diplomacy: Game2(W02); 3(Recruiting)

    Welcome to the first GITP Diplomacy Game! I could ramble a great big prologue, but why bother when we can link!

    Wikia link

    Rules we will be using.

    The map program I will be using to illustrate the game in progress

    A large map for ease of reference.

    If my understanding of copyright laws is correct, since I do possess a copy of this game legally, all this is on the up and up. If not, please tell me before I get my butt kicked off this forum. That would make me sad.


    Rules for Forum Play
    Spoiler
    Show


    The length of the Diplomatic phase, Order Writing phase, and Gaining/Losing Units phase should be set by the gamemaster with agreement of the players before the first turn.
    Diplomatic Phase I'd recommend 72-96 hours for the first year, then shortening the phase time as the game progresses naturally. Towards the end this phase may become all together unnecessary, and a GM should not feel required to keep it if the players agree to skip it.
    Order Writing phase It should probably be no more than 24 hours. All Orders need to be sent to the GM via pm and should include retreat orders for units that could be dislodged in the upcoming Order Resolution phase, thus allowing the game to move smoothly. If time is needed for a Retreat and Disband phase, then no more than an additional 24 hours.
    Gaining/Losing Units phase Again, 24 hours should be enough for this phase.


    Please post if you want to sign up, replacements and players for new games are taken off the list. Please don't sign up again until your current game is finished or you are eliminated. When signing up, please name any nations you wish to start as, so it can be possible to accommodate everyone as best we can. Nevermind, Keep it random. Probably more fun that way.

    Player Lists:

    Game 1
    England - Gothicbob
    France - Recaiden
    Germany - Murska
    Italy - Jontom Xire
    Austria-Hungry Fleeing Coward

    Game 2
    England - EleventhHour
    France - Irbis
    Germany - Reinholdt

    England - Reinholdt
    France - Fleeing Coward

    I would love to play this, but I have no doubt you'll have no trouble finding players for this game, and this looks liek the sort of thing I'd get massacred in. I'll sign up as a "If you absolutely have to have one more player" slot. Otherwise I'm sure someone else could do it.

    I agree 100%. And Mustadio, I think you'd do very well indeed and should try it.

    Also, and I'll be putting this into the first post, any requests for starting nation?

    Same.

    I meant I like those countries in real life.
    But yeah. We should probably just randomize it.

    Whilst I would love love to play this, I'm about to go away for two weeks, so I really really shouldn't. Still, put me on the waiting list for the next one

    If I recall, there are differences between nations. e.g. Russia gets an extra army, britian gets an easily defendable island (duh), Turkeys starts miles away from the fight, stuff like that. Randomisation is probably the best policy.

    It doesn't have to have the full 7 people to be played from my understanding. You have 4. You could play with that if no one else joins.

    I'd prefer a full-sized game, since that'd help me learn, you know, how to play the actual full-sized game. But oh well.

    It's... the first world war. There wasn't much of an American involvement until very late in the game, particularly anything to do with territories. In fact, the map only covers Europe, Russia and north africa (and a bit of Turkey) since that was where most of the fighting was done.

    So far we have Selrahc, Murska, Fleeing Coward, Mustadio, Dirk Kris, and Recaiden. This is going to be fun to watch.

    With six players I will run a game regardless. If we do not get a seventh player, old rules established that Turkey and Bulgaria are are nulled out and the Aegean and Black seas are connected. The program doesn't support any 6-player variants, nor these old rules, so i'll find a new mapping program if need be.

    Well we have our seven, as long as no one drops out.

    England - Gothicbob
    France - Recaiden
    Germany - Murska
    Italy - Jontom Xire
    Austria-Hungry Fleeing Coward
    Russia - Mustadio
    Turkey Selrahc

    Spring '01 Negotiation phase will last until noon, 7/18, Saturday.
    Orders will be due Sunday, 7/19, at noon. If need be these dates can change, I'm flexible but would like the game to move smoothly.

    I will help anyone during the game in understanding how to play the game (rules, submitting orders, etc.) but strategy will be up to yourselves and the resources of the internet.
