This is the place for open discussion, taunting, and general brick-throwing.

Welcome folks!

Getting the last bits of things setup - the map is completely set now and the Landmarks have been generated.  You can read which landmarks are available and a generic description of their purpose in: 6.F (in the rules list)

I'm hoping there will be a wiki this time too, not just a rules-list, once things get properly going.
The wiki was very convenient.
I can't really demand it, it's more work than you strictly need to do, but it was, like I said, convenient.

I'll be doing both - but, for an easy reference list - a single page is REALLY easy to view - and a lot of folks prefer it - makes CTRL/CMD + F easier than having to click around everywhere.  But, for having exactly what you want to read on the screen - wiki is definitely nice.

Hey folks - little update.  Almost everything is-in.  So, feel free to continue to make selections.  Begin taunting and jeering.  Actions and Renovation information will be forthcoming hopefully over the course of the next few days.  We'll be considering actually getting started next week and work-out a play schedule!  Thank you all!

My taunting and jeering will go toward the Narrator then.

A few days?  Pssh.  Hurry up then, slacker!  ;P

Re: Discussion Zone
Welcome, Jakob!  The game's been in testing for several years, but we keep updating it.  There are enough updates in this version where it will feel like a bit of a new game to those of us who have been playing it already!  So, it's still anyone's game!  The game can be pretty deep, so make sure you ask Narrator if you have any questions!  He's pretty good about explaining things!

And above all enjoy it!

Re: Discussion Zone
Much obliged Rasjesh! =)

I hope you have tons of fun Jakob Algrove and everyone else!

I'm hoping to get closer to being started this weekend, but, I understand that not everyone will be ready - and heck, aspects of the rules sections may not be at the rate work is happening =)

But, please please please please - ask questions - as Rasjesh said - ask!  I'm more than happy to answer.

The main keys right now are setting up your leaders, and your first Unit.  You may use your gold to buy anything in the standard 'marketplace' (Section: 7.G in "The Rules" link to a message in this game)

Re: Discussion Zone
Do donkeys consume food now?
I don't think they do, but since it's now 'each set of mounts' rather than explicitly 'horses' that eat extra, I feel I should ask.
If I'm right, then presumably 'mounts' also refers to stuff like riding-lizards or whatever, that we might find as some unique item.

Do Ranged Weapons still give bonuses in melee combat?
They actually don't say anything about ranged/melee combat, but presumably that is/will be found under the actual combat rules rather than the weapon-bonuses.

What do Spyglasses do this time?
My best guess is that they're actually renamed, probably to 'Torches', but it's possible I'm wrong and there is still a Spyglass tool.

Related to the previous question: Is it intentional that a lot of the new tools aren't available to buy?
I could understand not finding a Holy Writ in some random village, but we can't find a torch?

Oh, and what are 'construction tools' now?
Saws only?
