That’s it folks, it’s a draw! All 4 remaining players have sent me a private note saying they would agree to a 4-way draw, so we’ll just call it that. Of course this is an unusual end to a game, and one I don’t quite like, but given the recent trouble it’s at least good that everyone was anxious and active enough to all have an opinion on the matter. For the record, GM’ing isn’t a cakewalk all the time, especially when real life steps in, the economy, school, etc… and I don’t necessarily support the rash criticism of Steve… so I look at this more as stepping in to help out, not take over the game.

Personal notes on running the game, from way back in the first year when I did a few turns, are that it needs some work. The lack of lakes and seas, and no reason to send fleets down the rivers, made for little naval interaction or convoys… And then the neutrals, needing a majority of people to collaborate, never stood a chance. I don’t think it would be possible for them to grow and eventually use that game mechanic to bring a new player into the game. Good idea, but just not going to happen. Then there is the implementation – Realpollitik doesn’t handle unique situations well, when you have anything other than regular players in the game. The neutrals, and the barbarians all required manual adjusting to make it work in RP. Anyways it’s a good start, and we’ll see where it goes from here.

All should of course send an EGS… and the next games are already open – if any aren’t in Chaos yet, there’s only a handful of spots left!

Oh, and I do think I’d be stronger at personal warfare now, after catching all the quips from Sun Tzu…

Enjoy,
