Hi, I am interested in 4p game.
I have zero experience with FS but I have played Cuba Libre and FitL already.
I am able to play approx. 2-3x per week.

Disclaimer: I haven't played PBEM with more than 2 players before.

If you need agreement for a certain action, you email (all) participants asking if faction X agrees to Supply, Retreat, ...

If you want to offer resources, for example to prevent a faction attacking you, you'll probably need to be fairly proactive (e.g. "if at any time you're thinking about attacking me, let me know if I can give some resources instead").

While obviously more restrictive than in real life, I suppose it's doable.

In my another VASSAL game we communicate only via BGG thread.

That's also neat. Cleaner than email, actually.

Also, we have an additional player from the monthly GeekList.
Michal, are you in? Then we're at 4 already.

I'm in (I'm from the GeekList). I've messed around a little with VASSAL but I haven't done PBEM with it before.

I can usually take my turn at least once a day.

Can everybody PM me their e-mail so as to invite you for the Google Drive folder?

As soon as I've received three, we'll start the game.

Also, does everybody agree with random faction selection?

OK, I am in!

I preffer communication via BGG email thread - that will be clean, everybody will see that move was done.

Agreed, I will make a new game thread when we start.
(I'll still need your email for the shared folder, for the logfiles.)

Scenario selection: random, or does someone prefer long/medium/short?

Let us start from short one - to see how it works.

I'm fine with a shorter scenario.

I'll do this tonight, in this thread.
Then start a logfile and make a new thread for the game itself.

Random faction selection:

Faction for Petr:
1custom4{Arverni;Aedui;Roman;Belgae} -> ( Roman) -> ( Roman)

Faction for Michal:
1custom3{Arverni;Aedui;Belgae} -> ( Belgae) -> ( Belgae)

Faction for Matt:
1custom2{Arverni;Aedui} -> ( Arverni) -> ( Arverni)

Faction for Frederik: whatever is left.

Also, I have created another thread in this subforum for the actual game.
Let the battle begin!
