What is JOL?
JOL is a series of games of VtES being played over the internet.
Players email their actions to the players in the game, and other
players, if inclined, must react within the 24 hour time limit,
weekends not included. Once around the table takes from 1-2 weeks on
average, faster if everybody has good access.
The new version (JOL3)
uses an interactive web interface for game-play. The deckserver
handles all shuffling and dealing, to ensure fair play, but the players
move cards and counters around the interactive game board using the web
interface. A chat window is included in the web interface, so games
can take place in real time if all the players are online.
JOL games are played with straight VEKN rules, using the latest rulings
as of the start of a game. If there are rule changes in the middle of
a game, it is up to that game whether they want to convert to new
rules. For new card sets, they become valid for play in JOL at the
same time as they are in play for regular tournaments (ie 30 days after
release I believe).
(February 22) All new games will use the new JOL3 interface. That page has updated status and links, this page will eventually be EOL'ed and replaced with that one.
To sign up for new games, register for the new server, create a deck or two and store it on the server, then
email me to say you're ready for a game. I'll start games as people are ready. At some point it will be possible to start games interactively as well, but for now, we'll do things manually.
