...........in anonymous gunboats friends let each other know who they are by selecting pause right at the beginning of the game. Does anyone else use the DRAW/PAUSE/CANCEL keys in this way, I'm so naive !!
In my world history class, we're talking about Mongols and their impact on Eurasia. In this one excerpt from the Novogord Chronicles, the passage says that the Mongols demanded "give us your numbers for tribute." I was just wondering what the heck "numbers" is referring to. Thanks!
dragon con atlanta - any interest in a diplomacy game?
dragoncon.org for info on dates and location, etc.
they are not currently hosting a dip game, but having emailed the gaming director, it seems like getting one or two games going should be pretty easy. before i go any further, i wanted to see if there were any webdip members who might be interested in a face to face game at dragon con!
So, I really enjoy the World variant. I've played a couple full press and gunboat games, but have never tried a public press game. I personally think that such a game would be rather fun, with tons of potential for negotiation on a global forum.
May not everyone has a look into the older thread anymore. But we still need 2 players for our public press game with 48hours / phase and Anonymous players. You are in for 35 . http://webdiplomacy.net/board.php?gameID=85693 Password is "unitednations"
Henotheism is the belief and worship of a single god while accepting the existence or possible existence of other deities. The term was originally coined by Friedrich Wilhelm Joseph von Schelling (1775–1854) to depict early stages of monotheism, however Max Müller (1823–1900), a German philologist and orientalist, brought the term into common usage.
A computer as judge, jury, executioner, president, yadda yadda yadda is a very bad idea. Justice must be tempered with mercy and government must be run with compassion. Pure logic doesn't allow for either of those. Spock's "the needs of the many out wiegh the needs of the few" is not a way to govern. If it were, then the infirm, mentally ill, elderly, even the poorest of the poor would be subject to elimination to provide for the largest collective group. Logan's Run (as b-grade as it was) did a great job in pointing out what happens when computers take over and try to make a utopian society. No one over thirty - every one was "reborn" (killed in the movie's reality) to make way for the younger generation of workers. Sure, hot chicks were aorund every corner and all of them wanted to fuck, but utopia was anything but.
