    I'm waiting a message from someone. If I receive it then I can set up the Royal Council and the Agoraa threads. Those will be main IC threads. Once they are up I can open the First Council Session and we can properly start the game.
    However, you can already write stories about your characters. If those people who took FM's want to know what I did with their characters from 272 to 269 then PM me.

    I've set the game modding files up on my PC and I'm waiting. I'll read everything as we go. So what's the best way to make money early on? Beat on enemies? BTW why isn't the campaign VH?

    A lot of people don't like EB VH, it gives the AI very large cash bonuses every turn. I play on Hard myself.

    Looking good. I think I'll write an origins story for my character, though at only 17 and his only real vice being that he is a little lazy it'll be hard to develop a character for him until we start playing.

    VH would make running a game like this a bit difficult.

    So, a question: In the signu-up thread have been posted some rules for 'private finances' and ways to spend them. I also read somewhere something about private units, but they are not listed as way of spending. Am I then right, if I assume that private money has nothing to do with in-game money (the M'nai spent on buildings, troops and diplomacy)?

    Edit: What is PBM mod?
    [PBM is Play by mail I guess, but where to download it and what does it change?]

    Yes, it's mainly needed for the Chancellor(and for me as the GM) though. I am sure it is save game compatible if someone don't have it but to minimize the difference between peoples game files it would be nice if everybody have it.

    I will set up the Rules thread and will give the link to the mod as well. With it comes the EBBS script we will use. There are also EDU and EDB files wich allow us to recruit RBG's if needed. They are basically needed for the Chancellor and me only.

    And yes, Private Funds are out of the game money you can use on various things. One of the most important ones is the ability to buy Private troops. You have to say what unit you want to recruit and it's recruitment cost will be taken from your Private funds. It's upkeep will also deducted from the Private funds. This means that the Royal Treasurer or the Chancellor must add the exact ammount of mnai to the in-game treasury to create a balance. Otherwise the kingdom would pay for the recruitment and upkeep of your private units.

    You need the EBBS script from the PBM mod. I answered to Leo about FD.

    Cool Re: OOC Thread

    I took it upon myself to incorporate a bit of wikipedia through links in my character profile. His background was interesting so I opted to bring some out-of-game elements in his past. Hope this is alright with everyone as it does not 100% reflect on the in-game family tree. Not sure if I'll manage to roleplay all that stuff! But I sure as hell will try!

    Of course it is!

    Also, if anyone would like to use his private funds for building estates then let me know. I will build them and man them(spawn unit there). If you have a specific location in mind then let me know. Since we just started the game then I allow this.

    So, if the Council meetings are held in Alexandria would it not be better for all of our avatars to have been beamed there? I would RP it out via messengers but I see others posting as if they are there, even if in-game they are not.

    Since one turns last 3 months then it's not impossible for people to travel to Alexandria and then back to where they are in-game.

    I thought it was customary just to imagine our avatars took a long ride to Alexandria, considering turns last 3 months and the council session only a few days, then it is realistic to believe that the player characters moved to and from Alexandria in a turn.

    May I ask that all of you add the name of your character into your sig or something like this? Perhaps I can't remember all of the avatar names just because we started..

    The Royal Library is updated with most of the information. There will be some small changes but most of it is there.
