OOC: whooo! Almost back in gear ;D As to the scouting stuff, I don't really know how it could best be streamlined. I mean, you could slightly reduce its influence (at least in this setting) by allowing each side an initial map covering its "previous domain" to make the first few rounds easier on you. Tough question. lol

    OOC: Been busy irl. Having lots of fun in-game though. It has been pretty interesting and the larger then twibes map is pretty nice. I wonder about the possibility of coding something that might automate the process a bit. Something that you can paste a turn report in and have it calculate the treasury costs, unit popping, and so on. Should be really simple to code, as long as everyone sticks to the same format for turn reports... I might mess around, whenever I get free time, and see if I can make something that works well. Would be nice for future games.

    Though I get the impression that moving on the hex map is the slowest part.

    I'm back!

    I'll start processing again in a couple of hours.

    The problem with the "Scout X" idea is that it requires the map to be remade every turn - the fog part, that is.
    I did that for one of the Battle of Gobwin Bump iterations. It would be tricky for a multi-player game, and easy to miss a scout here and there.

    Ok, so Deo and SilverSought have had their turn 5 completed, and a start of turn 5 sent to HerbieRai.

    For some reason I cannot log into Google tonight so I can't upload the new map. I'll try again in a bit.

    Cheers

    OOC: Raven, I should likely have a forum response to you when I start my next turn. I think my game-based communication has been pretty much right after I ended my turn each time and that unless an emergency is happening I might just keep doing it that way.

    HerbieRai is mid turn 5. As he finishes, GWvsJohn will start.
    Meanwhile, CroverusRaven and new player Brimstone have started their turn 5.

    (hopefully Brimstone has activated email reminders about PMs)

    HerbieRai and CroverusRaven have completed turn 5 - GWvsJohn is now up. After him, SeraphRedux and Tourniquet will be up.

    And that will be the end of turn 5.

    Waiting on Brimstone to respond, or I might have to advertise for another player.

    To whomever is dark green as their color. Whether you know or not our scouts met this past turn near the mountains. If you wish to discuss diplomacy we are willing to meet you at that location next turn.

    Is the area of which you speak adjacent to some sort of barbarian teepee?

    It is near a mountain. I do now know of any teepee. My scout is still in view of yours when your turn starts. I am orange.

    Your Highness,

    Is your scout one hex southeast of my scout and both scouts are each one hex north of a mountain?

    Yes. Are you able to meet to discuss a peace treaty?

    GWvsJohn has finished his turn, and Tourniquet and SeraphRedux/GJC are up.

    Still waiting on Brimstone - I might advertise that spot again - although 48 hours is not up yet.

    To the side in Red, presumably Whedawall

    We have encountered your scouts, and you ours. As ever, we desire peace. We would ask that your eastmost units move no further into our territory until we can set up negotiations. We are less trusting than we were. We will endeavor to have a command unit available for negotiations in 2 turns' time, at a meeting point of your choosing.

    Jimmeny, Your terms do seem feasible, but our leadership in the area is currently occupied, we will inform you when we are available to meet.

    Janis, Our units are not cloaked in Red and, while I can not say for sure till the Whedawall turn starts and I receive reports, I do not believe we are the side you have encountered.

    OOC: I just noticed that Brimstone hasn't posted his side info publicly. Could he perhaps do so? I'd love to see his flavor. And determine whether his is the elusive red side.
