Thanks! Am I correct in interpreting the map as each neutral center having an army?

That is correct. And as David noted, these armies hold, but can be supported.

I assume country assignments will be random? How near are we to reaching playable number of players?

I am actually going to ask for preference lists when we have a full roster, but certainly people can skip it and just be assigned a Powwer at random.

Regarding the roster, it is on the fifth post on the first page of this thread. As of right now, we have twelve 'definites' and two 'maybes', so we are pretty close to filling up.

I think I'm going to sit this one out. I've got a lot of stuff going on at the moment. It does look fun though, so I will certainly watch as it progresses.

Looks like we may be at quota!

My preferred country choices are:

1) Tang Empire (China)
2) Kingdom of Wagadu (Wagadu)
3) Pratihara Kingdom (India)
4) Tulunid Emirate (Egypt)
5) Kingdom of Denmark (Denmark)

The rank order of my prefs is not iron-clad -- all 5 look pretty interesting to play -- so if someone else is REALLY desperate to play one of my first choices, go ahead and bump me down the list...
