Currently under the following structure barring unforeseen issues.
- using VASSAL (what versions are people using currently?)
- using Dropbox
- doing ~1 turn per day

Are there preferences on the type of game? Co-op Volkare, Team, Conquest, etc.. I'm up for any of them.

Re: Sorting out the details.
Just a FYI:

Testing with Vassal 3.2.11 and module 1.3.4 seems to reveal that even now, prior to making a log you should close the module (Vassal?) load the most recent save/log, click through and begin logging.

Even if you, for instance, load log X, click through, start logging, make a mistake and (re)load the log X... bugs can be introduced into any log or save you make. The only way to be sure is close the module (Vassal?) before loading a log.

I'm sorry it is this way, but I am fairly sure it's not a bug with the module.

Re: Sorting out the details.
yeahaaa
I'm fine with every kind of game as well. My priority list would look like:
1) Competetive Dungeon Lords
2) 2vs2 any scenario
3) Coop Volkare

But anything else is also good

Re: Sorting out the details.
I'm up for any scenario. I think we'll need to use VASSAL/module versions (3.2.11/1.3.3) because thats what some of us are using in other games.

Any one of those three are good, I might drop your number 1 to position 3 so

1) 2vs2 any scenario
2) Coop Volkare
3) Competetive Dungeon Lords

but I'd be happy trying any of those options.

I'm quite open to any options.

AFAIK team games were seldom played (except a few early ones). A big issue is the level of communications. Are players allowed to share information privately? Or only publicly as in a F2F game? If we opt for that we'd better make a clear call beforehand.

I've been walled from Google Drive since the middle of our Krang PBF#1. I'm not sure Dropbox is in that (never played PBEM before) or if I could work-around it (Lantern released a new version yesterday). I'll try it later. Anyway e-mail attachment is always available as the last solution?

Re: Sorting out the details.
Yeah I would suggest you email the attachment to the player following you, that way they could add it to the appropriate dropbox folder.

Re: Sorting out the details.
We (Cory, myself) are currently playing a 2vs2 game. It's allowed to talk by GM. You just shouldn't "show your complete hand". But you can discuss your plans or Source usage.

I really like this kind of competetive play - because it allows you to discuss a bit of tactics (which you usually can't in an all competetive game).

I don't think it'll be a problem if you can't access Dropbox - as long as you can eMail your file everything should be fine...

So how about a 2vs2 Dungeon Lords

Re: Sorting out the details.
Thats fine with me too. It seems like 2x2 games are a little slower, probably due to more communication prior to moves, but I dont think its too big a deal. Gives you opportunity to play more games at once

Thank you, Bart and Seppel. Fortunately I've found myself OK with Dropbox.

How about the VASSAL/module versions we are going to use? module 1.3.4 or 1.3.3?

I'm also fine with 2vs2 Dungeon Lords Can't wait to try how a team game goes.

OK so we have the basic paramaters.

I'm going to suggest a couple of other options we've all used before:

We will use:
- VASSAL/module 3.2.11/1.3.3 (to match the version Cory and Seppel are currently using)
- Dropbox
- Dungeon lords (2 vs 2 Teams)
- Hero Auctioning
- Random Map Orientation
- PvP on

Any other options people want? (or want to remove..)

Then I guess it's time to create the teams and select our heroes.

First 2 make a team: 5custom4{Bart;Ryan;Cory;Seppel} -> ( Bart Seppel Cory Cory Cory) -> ( Bart Seppel Cory Cory Cory)

Hero selection in the following order: 10custom4{Bart;Cory;Ryan;Seppel} -> ( Seppel Bart Seppel Seppel Bart Bart Cory Cory Bart Bart) -> ( Seppel Bart Seppel Seppel Bart Bart Cory Cory Bart Bart)

Well for some reason the Dice hate Ryan.

The teams are "Bart and Seppel" vs "Cory and Ryan"

Hero selection/auction order is: Seppel, Bart, Cory then Ryan.

Can Cory or Seppel actually set up the game once we finish the auctioning process?

Good luck all..
