Someone asked for these but I cannot find the post. Here is a sample setup for each nation that can be used in Solo or PBEM. I tried to incorporate several aspects in preparing these including:

Supply/foragability
Defense against potential enemies
Being able to atttack nearby minors once Winter ends
Being in a positionn to contribute to almost any ally's goals either by direct intervention or threatening a potential enemy
Flexibility to act or react within a move or two to events
Best chance of preserving units

Winter movement applies to these. Without winter movement several positions are exposed to immediate enemy attack and this may lead to mutually destructive results. Also keep in mind these are just a start and SHOULD BE MODIFIED as your experience in the game grows. For now these are safe starts.

Thanks for these setup files, they seem to be well thought out.

My taste in setups appears to differ from yours in a couple of areas so I thought I'd comment. I'm not by any means saying you are wrong, just presenting a different viewpoint.

1. Garrisons - I like to get garrisons on the board during my initial setup. A single point in a provincial capital is a good investment. Of course one usually thinks that they can always be put on later, but in my experience one wants to put points into one's main army and not into garrisons when the pressure is on. Certainly conquered minors should be garrisoned at start because you can't build directly into them and they can easily be lost.

2. Leaders. I don't place leaders at start and indeed I keep them off the board completely unless I'm at war. They can be placed on the board during the reinforcement phase if they start the turn off the board so you can put them right where you want them.

If this is a newbie question I apologize, but how does one download attachment files here? Nothing I've tried seems to work.

If I left-click on the "Attachment (1)" link, a window opens with a clickable link to "zipSetups.zip", but if I then left-click on said link I get the error message "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage", while right-clicking either on the original link or on this one gets me nowhere either.

Thanks in advance!

I think Matrix is having trouble with forum uploads/downloads... been very flaky.

You put one or more of those files into the "Setups" folder under the main EIA folder. Then, when you start a new game, you can "load setup". This is a button just below the log window, fourth from the left.
