Master of Magic Forum  /  "Master of" series

Hi All,

I recently got the Master of Orion (2016) remake approved on SRC, and we now have enough Master of Orion games to make a game series. But...

I wanted to see if the community here would like to be involved in that though, since MoM, while unique in it's own right, is fundamentally by the same designers and is a 4x "Master of" game. So instead of just a Master of Orion series, we could make it a more general "Master of" series and include MoM.

My understanding is that nothing will change for individual boards that become a part of a series, it's just that the current game board mods would also be promoted to series mods and be able to create game boards in the series.

Figured since the Caster of Magic Mod is being actively developed and there are rumblings of the new IP owner possibly looking to rebuild or remake the game from scratch, it might be useful for the community to have series control.

Let me know what you think either way! I'm fine with just seeing if folks want to do a MoO series, I just didn't want to exclude folks.

Thanks for the heads up. In a way Mom is a separate universe compared to Orion, even though it shares naming and genre similarities. "Master of Orion" as a series does sound a bit more self explanatory. Either way is fine with me. I can take some mod responsibilities in MOO or MOO2 if necessary. I also gave you mod status for this game, it's good to have at least 2 active mods / game if possible.

It's also possible to add Caster of Magic boards here and promote active runners to mod status if it gets popular.

Very true, totally forgot about the sub game options now! Also, thanks for promoting me - I'll try to be a good mod!

Sorry, work got the better of me for a while there. After asking around, it seems like the consensus is a "Master of" series is too general to be approved, so I ended up just putting in for Master of Orion.

I still hold out hope for a remake though. While the new MoO wasn't perfect, it's better than nothing and was at least faithful, and if anyone could do Master of Magic proud, it would be Slitherine.
