Actually it's a reference to Monty Python's The Life of Bryan. Roman Governor of Judaea province, Pontius Pilate, has a speech impediment. "...but, I have a vewy good fwiend in Wome named [cough].." (can't explain the rest; you'll just have to see the movie LOL).
Yes I am on acts as JimHackerMP or firstname.lastname@example.org
if you can search it by email address (real name's Colin).
Glad to see you made contact with Ray!
Best place to find more resources is BGG I think.
Speaking of Cyberboard, I wish there was a VG edition cyberboard, because the "forum" looks a trifle different, and there's an issue with "imminent wars" delay and you need a special space for that. The VG cards and board look way prettier anyway! And the coins are out of sight....!
I like your idea of messing around with a game on ACTS first, to get a feel of the way it works. That's a great idea. We can each play three factions, and mess around with how it works. See, it is the dice roll ability that I like ACTS. If there were some way of having a random dice roll with Redscape, so that the GM could be one of the players but still manage the game fairly enough, that would be cool, but I haven't seen a program like that where a random die roll could be "posted" on a Redscape forum. Let me know if you come up with anything along those lines.
In the mean time, definitely find me on ACTS. I'll set up a game for us, in fact....in fact, I think I can do that right now....
