I don't know if this has been done before, but a series of custom games on different (maybe sometimes the same?) maps with a story involved could be really interesting.
I plan to become a member soon (high hopes for xmas :p) so i'll be able to create custom games, and games with more than 6 players.
My idea is to have each player represent a specific faction/team/race (as in fantasy race), for example the orcs in the lord of the rings. any suggestions are welcome, please create a game to talk to me more in detail if you have a lot of ideas:)

warflow once there was a game i played where we were all duchies part of the holy roman empire. The goal was to rule all of europe, while still expanding your own territory. Heres the link for more details. http://warlight.net/MultiPlayer?GameID=2960326

that's not at all what i mean, i said a series of games.

My idea is to have each player represent a race, i'll take the example of the lord of the rings to make it simple:
P1 gets the orcs and morder
P2 kingdom of Rohan
P3 kingdom of Gondor
P4 Uruk Hai
P5 elves
P6 dwarves
P7 Harad

Each small game won gives a certain bonus, there could also be little tricks like having allies be allowed to vote to end to share that bonus.

examples of bonus could be extra territories, extra base armies/turn, extra armies on each territory at the start of the game etc., all based on how the game was won and the story behind it. for example a victory in the mines of moria might give faster supply lines which would give a base income of 6 instead of 5.

other ways of acquiring bonuses could be through fighting AIs, as a team or not, even a zombie AI where the last surviving player/team (depending on the theme of the campaign) could get a bonus.

All the bonuses would help either with other small games, or with the grand finale, a huge game with all the players participating.

I'm not sure if i'm explaining clearly, please let me know if you have any questions.

Run a search for the Dreaming of World Domination Tournament; it is an RP event where the winners on certain maps take that district on the regular world map in an FFA. The final is still going on I believe.

These sort of games are very popular and get a lot of interest. I'm definitely in if you make one.

I'm a great fan of campaigns and roleplaying, so I'd be very happy to play in such a game:).

k, this is just an idea though. if you're interested in helping organizing please invite me to a 1V1 for discussion, if you want to play i'll post another thread later asking for volunteers ;)

i think i'll need members to help me create balanced custom games (err, even create them since i have to win my membership, just 3 more rounds in the tournament! or buy it myself somehow first), please invite me to a 1V1 if interested in joining too, for a first attempt i'll need serious players who won't cheat or get booted, so i'll make it 500+ games requirement.

i'm in that tournament, but again, its not at all what i mean. my idea wouldn't be in the form of a tournament, read previous messages for detail or invite me to a game to ask specific questions/suggest stuff

k, here's an example of a specific scenario:
first game everyone plays against a zombie (in 1V1) controlled by a player (one of the moderators of the campaign) who's objective is to eliminate the player as fast as possible

the player who survives the longest (ties can be broken in different ways, i haven't decided yet) wins, and gets to have an extra army of 20 in the middle of his or her territories for use in the final game of the campaign.


another smaller game could be an ffa with all the players on the small world map with pms (and truces) allowed, which would allow the winner to have 10 turns of diplomacy with the player of his/her choice at the start of the final game.


another could be a strategic 1V1 miniature round robin tournament, the once the rankings are revealed the top player will get +3 base armies/turn, second best +2, and third +1 from the start of the final game
