Reporting for duty! I am in!
While I agree ravens may slow a game, IMO there's more intrigue and betrayal!
For what it's worth, if I post something in Italics, it is simply in character, not meant to be taken seriously, and something in bold means that's my move...
Thanks for modding Perrytom!!

Aurelii - 1custom6{B;L;S;M;G;T} -> ( G) -> G
zbardou - 1custom5{B;S;L;M;T} -> ( T) -> T
achall615 - 1custom4{B;S;L;M} -> ( B) -> B
katatonic - 1custom3{S;L;M} -> ( L) -> L
kruton - 1custom2{S;M} -> ( M) -> M
Huesitos - Stark!

I believe that randomizing houses is the best way to start a game, but if two players really want to switch (because they have both never played the other house or something) - you can. after all, we are playing for fun. But please do it before you start any dealing with each other. as soon as I get first turn orders from a player, I assume he has taken the house and that's final.

Reference and Info Post

This will be 6-player game, with Ravens and without Tides of Battle (noToB!)

So most of our players have played PBF before (I'm looking at you Aurelii...) so I hope we will have a speedy and fun game without much problems. I'll be checking the game most of the day and night but I usually don't start my morning very early (PST). I'll update the map often - if you want me to use the 'political' map, I'd be happy to do that - just tell me your preferences.

lastly, this is a game with Ravens - it tends to take a little longer so if you're waiting on people's responses on a raven you can post 'ravens away'. Also, you are most invited to copy me on your ravens - it will be more interesting to me. All I ask is that if you do, please write #37 in the title so that I can divert all the mail to one folder and avoid clogging my inbox.

If I make any mistake, please let me know! I have taken these from previous games and edited them, so thanks to all the previous mods for their contribution:

Guidelines::

1)
Though there are ravens, you are still welcomed to post on the main thread. We can have general discussion as well as jabs, chats, references to Ice and Fire etc.
2)
Use the banners below on the top/bottom of your posts.
Use a separate indentation for non-game related stuff, ingame actions, and game related political statements. Highlight ingame actions in bold, and political statements in italics. Example :
"Lannister March (+1) : Kn from Sunspear to Winterfell (game related)
(New indent) Sorry, I couldn't log in for a week for some reason. (non-game related)
(New indent) Hey Baratheon, how about i move out of The Mountains and you give me Pyke? (political, game related)"

3)
If possible, don't edit game related stuff (actions, politics), but if you must, highlight that you edited that particular text by leaving the old text striked through.
This is to clear up confusion, someone may read your original post only once, then when you change it, he may not notice what's wrong later.

4)
Anyone can feel free to PM me your upcoming orders if you have them in mind. You can conditioned them as well, these are called CO (i.e. "If Greyjoy takes Moat Cailin on my turn March a FM in Highgarden to The Reach otherwise March a FM in Highgarden to Sea Road Marches" or "I will march on Cracklaw Point unless Baratheon attacks me first"). It might helps speed up the game a little bit, I hope.
After sending me a PM, post on the thread so that we make those slow pokes submit their orders quickly.

5)
It is expected that you have your geek mail forwarded to your normal e-mail. This will allow you to keep track of the game better. No one wants to wait for slow players. If you need instructions on how to forward your geek mail let me know.

6)
Changing your mind: I will accept updates/changes to orders/battles until I have an order from each person. If the last person I was waiting for already submitted their order, then no orders can be changed.

7)
When sending orders, be sure to list all territories you currently have units in and don't forget to put a * next to your star orders.

8)
Battles: Let's assume you always support yourself. When submitting your battle card, be sure to list everything and calculate your total strength to prevent mistakes. If you wish to support another player, you must declare it publicly in the thread before I receive the battle order PM from that player. Keep this in mind if you want someone to support you.

Calculation example for copy and paste, modify it according to the current battle :

[Attacker]
Initial Strength = 3 (1 KN, 1 FM)
Order = -1
Support = 0
Card = Send to mod
Total = 2++

[Defender]
Initial Strength = 1 (1 FM)
Order = +1
Support = 1 (1 SH)
Card = ??
Total = 3++

If you are [Defender] in this example and you see that [Attacker] has sent their card, please send me your card AND publicly post your card, while reposting the updated calculations with your card's value included. That way, if Lannister sees the post before I do, he can just post his card and the two players can work out the results without waiting on the Mod.

*When you march, and you can possibly leave a Power Token (PT) in the area, you should always state if you want to leave one or not. It can matter a lot, especially before battles. The default assumption is NO unless you say you are.

*Along the same lines, feel free to publicly post your actions if the other orders can't possibly affect you. For instance, if Stark is raiding in the north, and Martell is first to march, Martell can post his march order if there's no way it will affect his march. Be sure to make sure it can't affect you however; if it turns out it can affect you then you are stuck with your action and you gave your enemies a sneak peak at your plans.

9)
For all rolls (Wildlings,Westeros) I use the geek randomizer the way I rolled for houses.

ENJOY THE GAME!
