Hey Kije, if it isnt too late, I would be willing to try that, assuming it isnt too late. I am in the same boat as Gorgon though, as far as experience.

that's ok, the less experience you all have, the easier it will be to crush you.

Not too late at all.  More about the game in a bit...

Okay - the site is functional.  What I'm going to need is an email address from all of you.  I've set the membership on the group site to restricted, so only members of the game or others we would care to invite can join.  So I need to send out an invitation to all of you, with an email that you'll use for this game.

The reason, fyi, that I'm using a Yahoo Group site is because I'm not Mr. Computer-Saavy and the groups that yahoo provides (for free) are pretty easy to set up and include features such as shared files/pictures and a message board that are useful.  That, and I don't have a website of my own to put it on.  So that's why, if any of you are adverse to Yahoo and were wondering.

So...either send me an email with your email address, or post it here as:
           youremailaddress at whatever dot com

If you want to send it to me via email, my email address is listed on my profile.

If you're ever in an argument and Entropy winds up looking staid and temperate in comparison, it might be time to cut your losses and start a new thread about something else :)

Thanks Ent.  Speedy.  

A few words about the site:
If you're not familiar with Yahoo Groups sites I'll briefly explain how we'll use ours.  On the site there is a message board that you can use to post comments that will be visible to everyone.  This can be used for in-game stuff as well as meta-game info.  There's also a section with shared files.  Here you can view or download rules, helpful notes, and maps.  A member directory will list emails by which other players may be contacted.  The photos section I'm going reserve to use to post the game map as it evolves with game play.  And the calendar function will be useful for keeping track of the diplomacy and order submission deadlines that we agree on.

I'm planning on writing some posts about basic game play for the newcomers.  It would be helpful if you read the review I posted (no-self promotion, just pragmatism) as it gives a decent background to the game.  The review can be found here:

More to come.

I've sent invitations to everyone who's given email addresses so far.  If you're having problems getting in let me know and I'll fix it.

And I'll invite OutKast and Gorgon when I get the addresses they want to use.

Gorgon is out of state this weekend so it might be a little while.

Hey I dont know what is up with my email, I dont have your invitation. This is the second time this week that my email has messed up, and I dont know why.

I'll resend it.

And so far Jam and I are the only members of the site.  Hopefully Archon's is an isolated incedent.

Once again, my email has decided that it wants me to brutally destroy it. You can try [email protected] or if you have any other ideas, feel free to share.
