So, it looks like we've got four definately interested in PBEM (Me, lolcaust, Not sure, Partizan) and two who might be interested (drmabuse, plus a friend of mine who just loves HIS).

Anthony, do you want to bite on this for sure or not? Anyone else intersted? If we can get six for definate, I'll go about trying to find us a referee ... unless one of the more experienced players here cares to volunteer.

I'd also love to play, but I've never played before, and I don't own the game. If there's a slot open and you'd be willing to put up with a complete noob, I'd be up for it.

Well, depending on how this turn comes out, we may have a lot of people free to play another game.

Damn you England!

Okay, well that's six then. I'll set about looking for a GM.

Sounds good. I'm registered on ACTS under the same name. So just go ahead and add me to the game as whichever power you want.

I'm not sure about the actual mechanics of playing HIS on VASSAL but I am familiar with HIS and ACTS. I can act as a GM if you all like.

Yes please. I've taken the look at the Vassal mod and it looks pretty self-explanatory.

Shall I leave it up to you to set up, or do you need to collect email addresses etc etc?

I'll get us set up but I'll need some info first. Ok the interested parties are:

MattDP - I have his ACTS ID
Partizan - got his ACTS ID
Stonecutter
drmabuse00 - got his ACTS ID
Not Sure - got his ACTS ID
lollocaust - got his ACTS ID

We'll be using VASSAL for the map and ACTS to handle the cards and die rolls. VASSAL has a new 3.1.0 version out and the HIS module is version 1.1. You can get all that at:

www.vassalengine.org/community/index.php

If don't already you'll need an ACTS account.

acts.warhorsesim.com/index.asp

Once you have an ID post it here or shoot me a pm.

After I've got all that I'll get the files set up and get the game started.

Oh, does anyone have preference for sides? Otherwise I'll just randomize it. (England and Ottomans are newbie friendly)

Ottomans -
Hapsburgs -
English -
French -
Papacy - MattDP
Protestant -

I have an ACTS account registered as my email address ... matt *underscore* thrower *at* hotmail *dot* com

If no-one objects then I'd like to limit my choice of sides to one which involves learning a minimum of new rules. In my case that would be the Papacy, the Protestants or the Ottomans. I played the Papacy in my last game, so I'm familiar with the religious struggle rules and I also went over the Ottoman rules since they seemed the most likely to impact directly on my play.

I don't care about sides, I'll be rules-cramming for anything I play. Noob-friendly is friendly to me.

I'll get registered on ACTS today, and get you the info.

My ACTS account is under lollocaust.

If I had the choice, I would like to play England or France, and would prefer to avoid the Hapsburgs, but my preferences are not very strong by any means.

I'll be learning as I go as well, so I'm good with whatever.

My ACTS account is under Anthony Santiago.

I just need to hear from Stonecutter so I can get his ACTS ID. Then I can assign sides and create the files.
