Runewars

From the preview video:
It is a time of war. The scribes and sorcerers of the land of Terrinoth have tapped into the power of the mysterious dragon runes. Though they comprehend only a fraction of the true potential of these artifacts, the rulers of the realm understand all too well that he who controls the dragon runes controls Terrinoth. Blinded by aspirations of power, and covetous of the runes of their neighbors, the leaders of human, elf, undead, and uthuk raise massive armies and march against each other. At the same time, brave heroes venture forth from their home cities on perilous quests in the hopes of claiming a dragon rune for their king, and eternal glory for themselves.

Game Overview
Runewars is a game of fantasy empire building. Players must expand their empires to increase their resources and send hired heroes out on quests in the hopes of capturing precious and powerful dragon runes. The game is played over seasons of play, each player taking one action per season. The game ends once a faction has accumulated six dragon runes or six years have passed; in the latter case, the player with the most runes wins. In case of a tie, the tied player with the most influence wins, and if a further tiebreaker is needed, the tied player with the most starting influence wins.

    If you don't get enough players, I'd love to play, but I'm already Uthuk in the first game.

    I've read most of the rules for this, but had to stop because I could no longer contain my erection.

    ... was that TMI?

    Should be interesting to see how this translates. Been drooling over the board game since it was announced.

    Player Selection and Map Setup

    Of the five players that have signed up, our four players have been randomly selected and factions randomly assigned:

    Kias - Waiqar the Undying
    Spoiler:

    admanb - Daqan Lords
    Spoiler:

    Infidel - Uthuk Y'llan
    Spoiler:

    El Skid - Latari Elves
    Spoiler:

    (Sorry, samurai6966. But you will be first substitute if a player drops from the game.)

    Each player has been randomly drawn two map units to place. Starting with Kias, each player will place one of their tiles on the map, making sure that each added piece is adjacent to at least two hexes already placed. Once all tiles have been placed, Kias will decide the locations of the home realms, ensuring that they are connected to the map by at least three free-movement edges and are all at least four areas apart (exception: one pair is allowed to be only three hexes apart). Then, starting areas will be selected, starting with admanb.

    I will do my best to update the map as quickly as possible when necessary. For now, Kias can choose one map segment to start things off. When building the map, be sure to think about making a balanced setup - you may not be able to get a position that you want!

    It's cool. I was about to post that I would have to become a reserve anyhow. I got some test coming up and I'm still trying to work on my Pokemon Pen and Paper Roleplaying Game, plus learn nWoD Vampires, and work on 2 phallas, and get a girlfriend, and get my truck fixed, and find the cure for cancer, and solve world hunger, and stop global warming...

    Are we selecting home realms in the same order we're laying tiles here?

    Home realms are pre-set for each race. We select where it goes after we build the map and the first player (me in this case) sets the starting locations up.

    Yeah, I was wondering if I would get to choose my starting loc, seeing as I'm placing last. Alas, this doesn't seem to be the case.

    The first player chooses where players can potentially start. However, after he does that, each player then chooses one of those locations to place his home realm at, with the first player going last.

    Kias means that your actual tile that represents your home realm is pre-set, it matches what your faction is.

    Oh excellent. See, that's the answer I was trying to get. Looking back, I just asked the wrong question :P

    Don't be afraid to put in gaps and bends, those can add a lot to the game.

    I'm curious- is it possible to end up with one or more starting locs that are only accessible by flying units and/or during winter?

    Cause that would be very...interesting

    No, as home tile set up rules prevent it (*edit* the locations you can choose from for you home realm must touch three non red/blue [mountain/water] area borders), but you can have them set up with built in choke points, i.e. a single area that leads to your home realm. Just remember, this can cause more difficulty than its worth as it limits your ability to reinforce and spread out.

    There are also tactics cards that let you pass through mountains, so relying on them too much can get you in trouble.

    That isn't right cause mine is one higher to touch two existing hexes.

    Speaking of which, was your first move ok? Two of your hexes touch an existing one, but only one existing hex is touched when there should be two right? What's the exact wording here?
