Dynasty Preregistration
As mentioned in this Preview Thread, I'm running a yearlong team tournament with a series of five historical variants here on the forums. 10 teams of 2-4 players, called Dynasties, will compete in these variants, with 1-2 games allocated to each Dynasty Member.

The first game of the tournament will start on January 1st, 2018, and the final game will end at some point in December 2018.

Why Preregistration?
I'm still working on writing up all the details, but this idea has garnered enough interest that I need to start keeping a more concrete roster of teams.

We are in no rush, since the first variant doesn't start until January 1st. However, the "interested" list that I've been tracking is already over half full, so for transparency's sake I want to make it easier to go ahead and preregister for this tournament. In the next post for this thread, I'll have the list of Dynasties (teams) that have organized so far along with a list of players that have expressed interest in playing.

Additionally, that list is now growing to include interest from other online Diplomacy-playing communities, including the PBEM players that I generally associate with and potentially a few folks from vDiplomacy.

I'll be updating this thread to be a bit more official as my rules articles are more fleshed out.

How Do I Preregister?
Respond to this thread or send me a PM, and I'll add you to the list. Let me know if you have a Dynasty organized already.

If you don't have a team to belong to already, check the list! Send some messages and see who might be interested in joining your Dynasty (or you joining theirs).

Oh great, I'm in their already!

I notice that there are four people on the waiting list - can we be our own dynasty?

You should probably ask your would-be teammates.

I was actually about to put "Username Pending" on some of the teams for persons that have confirmed they want to play but haven't yet signed up for a PD account. Then I remembered that we actually have a member with that name. :P
