Great Willie. You're on the interested list

The mechanics are as Tooth described them. Results, general discussion, Public Press messages go through the Forum; private communications between players and with the GM through PMs. It takes more work than a main site game, because the mechanics aren't so smooth and you have to make sure to keep on top of things. In games I run I aim to send a PM when new results are posted, and another about 24 hours before movement deadlines (my deadlines are usually 72-24-24 but negotiable, and definitely speed.

Two tips I think are vital to making it work -

  1. Change your UCP settings to get an e-mail alert for new messages, and Subscribe to the Sub-Forum where the game is played (otherwise you'l miss some for sure!)
  2. Save the current version of the map to your desktop - you're bound to want to refer to it fairly often

And take a look at a couple of the Forum games which are running at the moment (Active in the Forum Games Forum) to get a feel of them.

It's looking like Americas! I'm going to have to give Imperium a shot soon though. I agree with Palin that it might not last as long as some games - though I'm not sure that the first game played here is a good guide. But the first couple of years arfe completely different from anything else I've seen.

If anhybody else wants to run it I'm up for a game! :)

This looks pretty conclusive so I'm closing this topic and moving it to the general section. All those who expressed interest are listed in the new 'Americas' thread in New Games (viewtopic.php?f=253&t=19966)
