PalatiumIII is about to begin. Palatium is a PBEM game in the Tribe Net stable of build/war game campaigns. These games have been running reliably for about 7 years and are played by about 200 players. Palatium is a free, turn-based, closed-ended version of its open-ended counterparts and is played by 12 players. It is set in the Iron Age period.

You, along two other players, are part of a Clan that works as a team. There are four Clans in the game each striving to be the first to build Palatium. Crucial to this are the positive arts of negotiation, strategic planning and the administration of resources, combined with the more dubious arts of deceit, rhetoric and warfare. At least one of the players in your team has prior experience with the game and can act as a mentor.

If you are interested please let me know and I will send a fuller description.

Two-week turnaround.
