guessing who is in play

Post by Deacon on Sat Jun 26, 2010 12:43 am


So I'm pulling something together that is requiring a fair number of letters and it doesn't seem worth the effort to write people who are actually npcs since I can just pass a note to them via diplomacy orders.

So is it fair to read the paper and presume positions that don't seem to generate news aren't in play, versus those that do? Other than just being in the game long enough to meet everybody, how do you know?

That is often the beauty of the game. You never know. I am currently at war with Morocco, and i am still not sure if there is a player or not. Keep writing the letters. If there is a npc, then Agema will reply to your letters, soyou should get them no matter what. Unless spy action is involved, of course. You can often tell which nations have players. By reading the newspaper, by their replies to your letters. By going on the forums. Often players discuss what games they are in, and which nation they are. It is often a safe bet to presume all the big nations are player controlled. Unless proved otherwise.Good luck.
