Should Heptarchy ever make it to the main site, we will need to figure out another go-to for aspiring GMs. It's one of the most straightforward forum variants to fill and run.

I have a feeling that could be:

1. Ad Arma- probably one of the most simple variants I have ever seen. 7 players, and the map is small.
2. Baltic- another small and simple map with 4 players.
3. Canton- Assuming that this does not make it to the main site, this is actually a very good starting map. The map might be big, but the rules are simple.
4. Diplpmacy of Ice and Fire- I don't see this Game of Thrones-themed variant being a standard variant, because of the heir rules. (which can get really complicated) But it has been played 6 times and a 7th run is about to begin. Plus, it's my favorite variant! Lol no, we don't determine what variants become standard by favoritism.
5. Africa- this 6-player variant needs to get popular. It's simple, straightforward, and the maps are easy to comprehend.
6. Sail Ho!- should we resurrect this variant? This is a cool one, as I saw in the archives.

Those are my suggestions.

There are plenty of other suggestions than Heptarchy for PbF starter games. Heptarchy should not be held back from the main site because it's used a lot by GM's in PbF.

To be clear, I wasn’t suggesting that.

Fair enough.

Ad Arma is a nice variant to take this position. 7 players. No special rules. I have no idea on the balance of it, but from a cursory glance at the map it seems fairly balanced. Perhaps it should be given another run some time soon?
