I am thinking of running a non zombie Play By Blog game for the English Civil War.
I say thinking, as I have no idea how many of my handful of readers are interested in the ECW.
If there was enough interest I would be happy to get the game up and running.
For those wanting to know a bit more:
The rules will be the excellent set of rules that are free to download called "Victory Without Quarter" found here: PDF (right click to save)
As the rules use card activation it makes it easy for me to manage the battles.
The Campaign system will be from the Wargames Foundry rules "1644". For those without a copy (and I had to hunt down a copy that wasn't over $100AUD, which I did) I can provide details later.
The game maps will be the Britain and the Ireland & Wales maps found here: link (even if you don't want to play, I suggest looking at the maps and downloading them, as they are useful for all kinds of wargames set in Europe).
Starting armies: each player will need to nominate which side they want to represent: King or Parliament. If too many nominate for one side I will even things out. Armies will be generated by myself - there is a random element to the armies, but all will have a basic number of mandatory troops in them.
Players only need to submit orders for the game turn, provide me with how their armies will be deployed on the battle field and I play out the actual battle using the game rules and the card activation system.
I them post any results and players submit new orders etc.
So, if this sounds like for you please post a comment expressing your interest in the game.
Of course if no one is interested, I might go it on my own regardless.
