Sent out server info.  If you guys who know anyone who's cool and will play reliably, feel free to pass the info on.  Let me know, though, so I know how many we're expecting.  I've invited two friends to play, but not sure if either will.

If you want to claim a nation but are still working on a god, please submit a placeholder so the nation shows up as taken on the server.

I switched from Pangea to Helheim.  Feel free to grab the orgy-loving half-men.

If you change your nation choice be sure to let me know, since it seems like only the host/server can clear out a human slot.

No one going to play the new nation? Rus?

I haven't looked closely but they seemed solid at a glance.

I'm still willing to put in AI chaff if we want a longer/easier game.

Anyone figure out how to upgrade a fort? I'm having a bit of trouble with that.

Does going to build in the same province not give an option to do so? Think that's how it worked in dom4.

Might mess around with Rus in single player tonight and switch if I like them. Assuming the game hasn't started already.

There's only two levels of fort in EA, excepting some nations.

You upgrade by building the fort one more time after establishing a palisade.

There's no more individual building upgrades.

Does the cap fort start at max level then? I don't see the option.

Capitol Fortresses start at max level for the Age and for the Nation, yes.

Is it too late to join? I'm a total noob (literally just bought the game yesterday) but I think it could be fun to suck horribly in good company.

Actually. ... unless Zoltan doesn't want me to play. He did tell me his strategy but it was just so much words in the air at that point.

It is not too late to join in! 

I don't think there's any real threat of strategy leaking.  While we have some competitive players I don't think this is really a competitive game.  I think plenty of people are happy to offer pretender and game advice for new players.

I'd like to kick things off this afternoon, maybe 5:00 EST?  But I think we're still missing one god (two if Val decides to play).

You should play. After all, the strategy I told you is totally UNSTOPPABLE anyway. :V

I figure that with the number of players we're getting, and the fact that we want to have a more easy going first year, that we'll be going with a random map this time? My tests in Peliwyr sometimes feel a little crowded, and that's even missing two of the potential players.

Awesome. I can't have things made up by 5 pm because I have work/social obligations, but I can definitely have you something by midnight since I don't need to do all the pesky play testing (whee! I have no idea what I'm doing!).

I'm willing to wait to get more players.

And yeah, I was going to do a random map.  They said they put a fair amount of work into it for this version.  So far it does seem like it's better at making more interesting/strategic terrain than Dom4.

I have zero issues with waiting!

And to add my own voice to everyone else's, don't feel like you're jumping into a competitive gaming atmosphere were everyone is going to mock, pile on the newb, or feel like the introduction of a newb would ruin other's fun, Val.  I'm going to admit that compared to many of our others players in this group, I suck and am usually one of the first to be knocked out of play but I have fun (even while I'm loosing) while I'm in.

I'm a highly competitive strategy gamer by nature, but this is just for fun (as I'll keep reminding myself). I'd like to play Ulm.

I'll have Zoltan help me with the servering part tonight.

Another QoL feature in Dom 5 that I quite like:

Your Pretender finally takes advantage of it's own blessing effects.

Edit: Another little tid-bit.  When you go to forge an item or cast a spell, there's not this little tick box in the upper right corner of the menu that says "monthly forging" or "monthly casting."
