Hi guys, keen to get a decent game of HiS under my belt. I've tried ftf a few times with 3 players but never managed to get a full 6 players game going. I'm familiar with vassal and whatever else is needed to run this smoothly in PBEM I can pick up easily (I hope). Any volunteers that know how to run this in PBEM and are looking for a new game pls give me a shout or I can join someone else's game too.

cheers

I can play in new game. Would prefer English or French as
I've not played those before.

Using ACTS for card play/dice rolling
and dropbox for file sharing is probably most common for PBEM.
I can help set things up if you wish.

I'll play. I'm new, played one turn so far, so basic power is what I'd prefer.

Familiar with ACTS and Vassal/Cyberboard.

If you open a pbem game up I'd be interested in joining as well. I've placed face to face twice but not via vassal/email yet.

OK, at the moment we have 6 players

Andrea Cossutta
John Gilmour
John A
Michael Hyland
Igor Zacharjasz
Dimitris Paraskevopoulos

I can find ACTS accounts for John G, John A, Igor Z and Dimitris P

The others will need to sign up with ACTS

http://acts.warhorsesim.com

Once you've signed up you can also read through the journal files
of extant games, to get some idea of how ACTS is used for the
card play and die rolling.

Post here when you have done that. Also post power preferences.

I ask those who are more experienced with the game to include Hapsburg
as one of their power preferences.

e.g. My own preferences are (in order)

English, French, Papacy, Hapsburg

The first three, I haven't played them yet. The last is included
because I'm familiar with the game.

Once everyone has signed up to ACTS I will set up a dropbox account.
Dropbox allows the easy sharing of our move files.

We have a choice of Vassal or Cyberboard for HIS. Unless someone
objects strongly I am going to suggest Vassal. Download the latest
vassal from http://www.vassalengine.org/download.php, and download the
HIS module from http://www.vassalengine.org/wiki/Module:Here_I_Stand

I can play Hapsburg. If someone also wants to play it I'm fine also with French England or Ottoman.
I'm using Mac so for me it is vassal only.

I have no preference for Vassal or CB.

I will take Papacy if it's available, if not, something basic. Something fit for a newb.

Hi guys, got my ACTS account up and running now and Vassal module ready.

My preference would be French, otherwise anything else works.

OK, Dimitris also responded by geek mail, so we just need
faction preferences and ACTS account from Michael to get
started. I will send him a geek mail.

OK chaps, I have just set up a game in ACTS and a dropbox folder.
You should receive invites by email to the folder.

The game is called "Pilgrimage of Grace"

I assigned factions as follows

Ottomans Dimitris P
Hapsburgs Igor Z
English Michael H
French Andrea C
Papacy John A
Protestants John G

I hope everyone is happy with this.

PS I invited everyone to dropbox, using the email address I found
associated with their ACTS account. Then I remembered Dimitris had
given my a different dropbox email, so I invited him with that as
well. If anyone else has a different dropbox email, then send it to
me by geek mail.

The first phase of the game is 95 Theses, done by Protestant player
ie me. I will post Vassal files in the DB folder as soon as I've done
that.
