A little while back I posted a thread for a (standardized form) when we want to have someone a PBEM game of SPWAW. I came up with one. I know, if you guys look at it we can come up with something we all can agree on (format wise). Download it, change what you want and then post your version. The bottom line is we all want something that will work. If someone thinks they can make a better one that's great. I just want to get the ball rolling. Thanks in advance.

Ok guys and gals, this is something we wanted a short time ago, so please give feedback(good or bad) so corrections if any can be made.:) The only thing I would like to see added would be map size. Also misspelled PBEM in the title and file name.

A standardized PBEM setup document gamers could either email to each other for initial setup or posting on the forum.

I had a look at it and it looks good. I like the word format rather than the electronic form. I would like to be able to print it up and keep a record of my games as well.
I can't tell you how many time I have been playing more than one email game in the same sitting and I would forget which email slot belonged to who. With this system you can have a record and keep much better track of your games. That's my two cents.

Would just sending a snap-shot of the proposed preferences screen do the job? All the data is right there, and any extras such as arty limits, set-up limits, etc could be included with a copy of the mission statement. I think that would provide all the data one needs, and everyone would know what they were looking at, which would eliminate language troubles. Anything left out could argueably be considered 'gaming the system', since there is no button or switch for it. whoops I forgot astricks. Maybe this ain't so easy.
T.(you could keep the screen shot as a file. works as well as paper, most of the time).

All look pretty good. Is someone actually going to make an amalgamation of all these?

The only thing I’d add is a “Player Availability Schedule”, and a block for their time zone.

And while I’d not hold my opponent’s feet to the fire over playing times, I’d get a good idea of when to have my turn played and send in order to best facilitate the game. For example, I just started a game with Viking, told him when I could check for turns/play/send them during the day and evening, and what time zone I’m in. That way, if he wants to maximize the game speed, he can synchronize his sending with my availability, and vice versa.

Alternately, if the forms are completed and the parties realize they’ll only be able to get in one turn per day, they may choose alternate playing partners.

Looks pretty good. Personally I would like to see this as something that could be posted easily to the board (without having to download), but since the board doesn't support HTML this is the best option (since the board does support .doc downloads).

My addition to this:
Where is true troop / rarity?
Mention pre-laid mines or not?
Mention number of infiltration units or not?

Hello. Thanks greatly for the form. I have been using it for all my pbem games and will continue to use it during the Messina Tourney at WarfareHQ [All Combat All The Time].
