Empire / EMPIRE is Back
« Last post by tmj on December 13, 2020, 11:18:51 am »
My computer text only games are back.  EMPIRE is back!

All games started 3 days ago.  No need for other start-game announcements.

Text mode only, you can use a terminal emulator to telnet in at 100.4.113.167

Or you can use a domain called:  empire.game-host.org

It is better with Reflection or Minisoft in HP terminal mode or TTerm from Turbosoft if you are on Linux.

If you see a prompt called EMPIRECLASSIC:  Enter the following:

HELLO PLAYER.EMPIRE1

(or 2, or 3, or 4, or 5)

It will ask for your Nation's Name or Number, if this is the first time make up a Nation name, like "Rabbinate".

If you successfully log on.  a list of command can be seen by entering "COMM".  "V" will show the island you are on.


I also put the other games:  ADVENT, MANSION, MILLBORN, WARP, SUPRTREK, SUPRTRK, TREK, CIVIL, & DROID.

For those games yes, enter HELLO PLAYER.{gamename}

Droid, Millborn, & Warp need an HP terminal emulator or it looks like screen garble. For those games TTWin or TTerm by TurboSoft.

Advent is the famous one with the Troll bridge.

Mansion is the one with the maid.

Empire / Re: Game 5 Ended Early
« Last post by tmj on September 05, 2018, 08:30:16 am »
Since this is a year long game and there have been only 18 games since 2000.  I think it may be too early to declare a trend.

Operator error, and shutdowns due to DNS, IP, and hardware changes are more frequent.

And you remind me, I need to restart the other four expired games.

Do players concede like that when a game is too one-sided?
