Pedros gave a good elaboration on the river rules.

Furthermore, as I understand it, looking at the map there is only one unit that can offer a support across the river in Spring of the first year. Unless a unit crosses the river unopposed there is no way for anyone to cross (unless they have the support of that 1 unit). For a few SCs you will have to diplome to determine who can access them and when.

There was one previous game of this variant on this site, do not follow their game play to understand the river rules as it is looks like they did not use them. REPEAT: Do not follow their game to understand river rules. END OF REPETITION.

Yes - I've only just realised that Morg! Up to the end of the first phase the GM didn't even know there were any river rules!

I played one game of Imperium and my impression is that Goth has the best starting position and guaranteed center for their home unlike others. River rule make this variant very interesting, but for new players confusing. If anyone are interested to see game and how the river rule apply to the game here is the link: http://vdiplomacy.com/board.php?gameID=1756#gamePanel (use blue arrows to advance through game history).

This is great variant, so enjoy the game :)

Thanks Unknown Archont,

That is a good example of a game played with river rules. Furthermore the rules continue to be used even after the first year.

Also timg has not confirmed and I don't think we should wait any longer. Ninjaruler, you're back in, and I'll take your previous confirmation as valid. I'll start another thread with a map and tribal assignments.

Please sign me up for alternates/reserves.
