Introduction
Hi all! I'm NoPunIn10Did, and it's been a long time since I've been active on PlayDiplomacy. Lately, I've been shifting my free time to other hobbies and have even started a small product design business!

I'm recruiting players for a variant that I brought to the PlayDip forums originally in 2020. It will be played on my Discord server, and I will be using my website to host public-facing results. Recruitment has gone quite well, so much so that I'm hoping to run two sessions of the game concurrently. I'm planning to officially start the games shortly after Christmas (possibly earlier if players are all ready to go).

This variant is...

Order of the Dragon

Full Rules Repository

Discord Server

Variant Features
  • 10 Players per board
  • Set in 15th century Europe
  • Includes Diplomacy Points (DP) mechanics similar to Ambition & Empire, whereby you can bid on the actions of armed stationary neutral units.
  • Includes Heirs that can be married either to neutral units or to other players' heirs, creating new Vassal powers on the map.
  • Based on mechanics originally designed by Aeschines & NoPunIn10Did for Saga of the Nine, winner of the 2019 Best New Variant award.

How I GM (short version)
  • All messages and orders will be handled on Discord.
  • I try to process two seasons per week (Spring, Autumn, Winter), though the pace will sometimes slow to one season per week.
  • Seasonal orders have set deadlines and aren't processed early, while Retreats are handled ASAP.
  • We will probably select powers using either a modified Paris Method or some form of silent auction.
  • Draws are settled via secret standing votes and must include all surviving players. In the event of a draw, players will be ranked according to their SC counts and years of elimination. If applicable, ties will be broken via Paris Method. DRAW SIZE WILL NOT MATTER.
  • The games will have no official defined endpoint, but I reserve the right to terminate a game after ten full years of play at my own discretion (as a ranked draw that includes all survivors). In such an event, I will try to give 2-3 seasons notice and will time the game to end after an upcoming Autumn turn.

How to Sign Up
Join my Discord server and just say so in the public chat! If you have further questions, feel free to shoot me (NoPunIn10Did#8458) a Direct Message on Discord. I will check this forum thread periodically too, but I'm unlikely to respond to private forum messages.

I'm trying to recruit a good mix of veterans and new folks for these two sessions, and I hope you will consider joining the game. You are also welcome to join as an observer; they tend to be my best source of substitutes when someone inevitably has to drop.

Thanks for your interest, and I look forward to hearing from you!

Three signups since I posted this, so five slots remain.
