    There was some interest in setting up another DLP Diplomacy game on Discord last night.

    @TMD @Jarizok @Arthellion @Khaine

    Depending on how many players we can get, we could shift from Classic Variant to something more suited to us. VDiplomacy has the largest collection of playable online variants I know of.

    So post your interest here if you'd like to get in on this bitch, as well as how much time you'd like between turns.

    Classic is the only variant I’ve played, but I’m open to new experiences.

    Last game was actually my first ever game of Diplomacy. I was flexing hard like I was a veteran on IRC though, gotta get that #misdirection. Count me in again. Would be inclined toward classic since i'm still learning it. 2 day turns is a little short for me. When i'm on-call life is little more than work/sleep.

    I’m up for it.
    How long were you thinking of making the turns? 2 days or so seems like a decent time.

    I was betrayed. Betrayed!

    Would this be played over PMs like the 2018 game?

    Edit: Why doesn't the fucking gif work

    I would imagine through Discord PMs.

    Yeah I think 2 days is for the best given some of us might be from different time zones.

    Sign me up if you please (and there are open slots). I think three-five days is best. Gotta give time for that negotiation and diplomacy.

    So our players are:
    Halt
    @Paradise
    @TMD
    @Arthellion
    @ScottPress
    @Khaine
    @Jarizok

    Variant: Classic
    Method of Communication: Discord PMs. I will setup a channel in the DLP Discord for our "public messages."

    Poll has been setup for the time period. I think 2-3 days is ideal. 5 days seems a bit much, but it depends on how busy people are. Vote for what you prefer. Will throw up a link with the password later.

    Edit: I'll add that there's an option not to process the game on certain days (such as Sunday), so if you guys have any preference in that regard let me know as well.

    Also we'll be fairly lenient towards NMRs.

    Erred on the safe side, set up a game with 3 day turns.

    Join Code: DLP
    https://vdiplomacy.com/board.php?gameID=40930

    We're going to be quite lenient on NMRs, but with 3 day turns, this game will go pretty slow. For context, a regular diplomacy game with 1 day turns lasts anywhere from 1 to 2 months. To speed things up, I suggest that if all players have no actual diplomacy to conduct, press "ready" on your turn. When all players have hit ready in game during a phase, it will automatically run and move us to the next phase. This will be more relevant during retreat phases, disband, and build phases.

    Good luck with the game. Never heard about it but looks like a fun concept.
