    BJLT is the one I've had since 5.1, so everything should be in order then.

    I assume that I'll just log onto the Metaserver sometime before 19:00 CET on Sunday then?
    Or is there any other program you like to communicate through that I should have in order?

    Yeah, I think normal settings for those. What about the time frame for province and seazone discovery? It seems to me like people get a lot of explorations automatically with the default settings, at 25 and 50 years. Should we lengthen it a little, to maybe 50 and 75?

    Up to eleven players so far. I think we could fit one or more in, Bunka, especially considering a few of these will likely drop off in the first few weeks.

    I don't know whether King John or Admiral Drake can access the public beta section, for registration requirements are strict. As Mac1 remarks though, there's a beta patch which alters quite a few things and adds some features. While it's an improvement over stock 5.1 in many regards, it hasn't been tested extensively in multiplayer (I couldn't notice stability issues). It won't be finalised by the time we start.
    well i registerd the chronicle version and im now able to enter the beta forum, mayby john will be able to when he gets dw registerd
    beta sure has a impressive list of changes btw

    Is our start this or next week sunday?

    Also due to a business trip I can not make August 12th. The rest of the next months should be dandy, I hope.

    I think so. As I said to Bunka, there will likely be one or more dropouts early, and I don't have an exact max capacity anyway.

    Who's got a good host for the first session(at least until Drake shows up)?

    As for the beta's, I'm thinking next game for that, when they'll have had time to work out stability issues.

    Excellent. I've updated the rules, trying to fit in the ones from other games that seemed the most substantial. If there are any other important ones that should be in, let me know.

    You're asking for rules — there are numerous additional ones you could consider, besides the ones you've listed. I think it's good, perhaps sufficient, to agree on one principle: to not circumvent the game's rules, despite the game's minor flaws. I am a naive person.

    These are as many possible issues as I can type in one minute:

    keep at war with an irrelevant crusade target to gain manpower
    sell province to human so that he removes it from the HRE
    sell province to human so that he builds a manufactory cheaply
    declare war on a country's vassal when there already is an active war with the overlord
    manipulate loans to AI countries
    close the game before clicking a nasty event's option, blaming your nonexistent cat for a power down
    etc.

    I am not a good host, but I can serve as one when needed. Did you settle on the players-countries pairings?
