Here I Stand
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.
Okay, well that's six then. I'll set about looking for a GM.
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?
MattDP - I have his ACTS ID
Partizan - got his ACTS ID
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:
If don't already you'll need an ACTS account.
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)
Papacy - MattDP
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.
