WWN Diplomacy / Backstabbr SIGN-UP

Post by Kiltman2 » Sat Nov 11, 2017 7:42 am

The year is 1900. Europe stands on the brink of war. Will you and your allies rise victorious? Or will you be crushed under the heel of treachery?

Hey WWNers. I love Diplomacy & the web client Backstabbr, I'd love to GM a game and get a WWN match rolling. It's a lot like Advance Wars in many ways, only with more fluid alliances and a sad dearth of B-Copters.

Diplomacy rules are reasonably straightforward, this video series is very useful (if deathly slow, hahaha)

SIGNUPS
1. Terragent (confirmed)
2. Linkman
3. Dragonite
4. MobiusReactor (confirmed)
5. Narts
6. MysteriousLad
7.


Countries will be randomly assigned. Try to keep Comms to the Backstabbr Press feature or in this thread: I massively appreciate historical / RP flavour, and I want to share the best moments as an AAR.

Turns are adjudicated every week because we all have busy lives and that. Players will be anonymous, it is up to yourselves whether you reveal your country's identity or not 8) .

To signup, post in this thread & I'll DM you the invite (I believe you'll need a Google Account to sign up). Hope to get this off the ground ASAP!

Once we have 7 players, we'll begin. I'll be doing historical flavour / analysis every Spring turn. Y'know, for funsies.

Any questions about the rules, let me know.

Turns are very short, actually inputting the actions takes a few minutes at most.

But the game really comes into its own with the discussion you have with the other players, the alliances which arise and fall - and having longer time between turns aids that.

So turns take a few minutes of input, but the turns will be adjudicated once a week.

Sure, I'm in, why not. Though if a more regular member shows up and needs a slot I'll willingly give mine up, I'm not exactly the most active member here...
