Well ive given the call before but we didnt have enough interest, that was a few months ago so ill give it another shot.

Im willing to GM a game of Diplomacy for use Standard dip or varient if you prefer (though standard is always good).

This requires 7 PLAYERS, England, France, Italy, Germany, Russia, Turkey, Austria.

Here is screenshot of how my last Diplomacy game ended and a link to the epic EOG i wrote.
http://www.redscape.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=50217


Happy to host if we have the players, and it is fun.



This is how the last game looked at the end with a decisive Italian/Turkish Alliance.

The game starts like this.




Just for the record, i use the handle ''ROLLS'' on that website i posted.

As I said before. I will do it.

For a straighforward copy over zip version go here: Goerings Delay -- NZQS -- 1.3b.rar

The Mod can also be set up with the Jones Generic Mod Enabler and has worked fine in that mode in my tests. This version has everything in it, 1.3beta, JSGME and the East is Red patch, and can be installed straight to your Armageddon 1.2 (ZBLV) folder without disrupting vanilla at all. It has the 1.3beta exe update and JGSME Mod system right in it. Just unzip to your main doomsday folder, copy the contents of the folder, then past into the main folder, then enable the mod using the JSGME system. Once you execute the JSGME it is pretty self-explanatory: EIR NZQS --ARMA 1.3beta complete 1.3b

Small patch from XTPS or NZQS 1.2 to NZQS 1.3b: Goering EIR -- Patch 1.3b

It would be a dangerous folly for the British people to underrate the enduring position in world history which Mussolini will hold; or the amazing qualities of courage, comprehension, self-control and perseverance which he exemplifies.

Surely on a board devoted to strategy gamers we can come up with 7 playes to commit to 1 hour a week to Diplomacy, the mother of all strategy games.

Where do you get the game then? I only remember the old board game version.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. -- That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, -- That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness."

It's also called PBEM diplomacy (Play By E-Mail).

MG will be the game GM, we each have a week (standard game phase) to e-mail and dip with one another then once a week orders are due which get sent to the game GM who then resolves the orders on the map and then sends an e-mail to all players showing moves, retreats, builds allowed ect ect. Sign up so MG can post the rules and you can read into it in more detailBig Grin SE.

Its very easy hiensen, heres a link..


Download this program. Its called realpolitik.
http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=24361&package_id=19601&release_id=313002


You dont need this to play the game as i will provide maps for each phase. But if you do download this you can test your moves and ideas on it which makes life convenient.

In Short

There are 3 Phases to 1 year; (there actually 5 but you neednt worry witht hem just yet)
Spring Turn, Fall Turn and Winter
If your on a neutral city or an opponants city in the Fall you carry that build over into Winter. During winter you an only have as many units as you have Cities. You can only build new units in your Home Cities. The starting 3 (4 in russias case). Naval units can be built in coastal home cities and Armies anywhere.

With this map in mind.


Here is a move i might make in Spring 01 as Germany.

A Berlin - Kiel.
F Kiel - Holland.
A Munich - Ruhr.

(after resolution the GM reveals all moves)
Spring 01 resolved.



The new map for Fall orders Due would now look like this.


You can use your units to move, hold, support and naval units can convoy. Only 1 unit may occupy a province at a time. An example of this is the bounce England and France just had in the english Channel.


Fall orders for Germany might then be

F Holland Hold.
A Kiel - Denmark.
A Ruhr - Belgium.

Resulting in this Fall outcome:



This would then be the new map for winter:


And Winter Build orders Rcvd something like this .

In the coming phas Germany might then order

A KIE - MUN
A BER Supports KIE - MUN

This would dislodge the French player from Munich thus reclaiming it for germany. Germany musts till occupy the SC in fall to ensure it is his in winter.

****

The crux of the game is in what you negociate with other players, and how they perceive your motions towards or away from them. In this game there can only be 2 outcomes.

1. 1 Player takes a SOLO claiming 15 cities or more in a winter phase.
2. DIAS = Draw including all survivors.

******

The only other thing to really mention is that some provinces are bi-coastal. eg. Sapin, has a north and a south coast. Obviously a FLeet on the North coast of Spain cant partake in support or movement activities in the med sea.

Once we have 7 signed up i will post the rules, (rules are quite long but you can probably just speed read them). I will answer all questions during the game seeing as it may be some of your 1st times.


Dont let the simpleness of the game fool you, this is highly addictive and competitive. Think of it as chess with 7 players.
