The civilians role has alot of options to it. The leader of the civilian group could be a true wildcard and not cooperate with either of the opposing teams. We had one game where the federal team had to actually come into the civilian "town" arrest and detain the civilians until a legally binding agreement could be achieved *note to future hosts, never let yourself get filmed
The deal the civilians made with the federal forces in that game, essentially forced the federal team to loose a 1/3 of its total fighting force to protect the civilian interests.
If you placed the game in May (not the 24 weekend though) I would be willing to help with the game, and know that Joe would sign off with after hours field use with me involved in the game. Renegade would also be very useful in helping make this work, so you might want to approach him as he is a wealth of information. The best games dont simply have one host running the whole show, but a team with a common goal working together for the enjoyment of the players attending. Krusty, Brian, Scarecrow and many others who have hosted large scale and very popular games know this already.
It has been discussed amongst senior players that maybe some mentoring amongst our newer brethern migth be in order. So I'm asking you, would you like some help? This will be your show, your game and your rep but I'm sure a few of us can help you make this work.
When any senior member of the site, offers help especially ones that have a ridiculous amount of experience in these sorts of things I'm sort of inclined to accept the help!
George have I told you how much i love you recently? I mean in a purely plutonic hetero sort of way. honestly man thank you, I'll be trying to get to a few of your games for sure.
honestly this is turning out way better then i could have ever hoped!
Right now I'm going to try my hand at a few small games, little scenarios more skirmish like so i can get some hosting under my belt.
BUT i am more then willing to accept any and ALL help to make this game turn out amazing, THANK YOU ALL! (your going to be hearing that a lot from me)
