The Age Of Wonders Playersí General Poll

I got this idea of a poll form from another game forum where I frequent. I donít know how this is going to work out, likely there would be another version of this poll to accommodate AOW2 matters not covered in this one once that game is released.

How to complete this poll form:

1) Cut and paste the original form into your message window.
2) Where a check mark or selection is required, simply type in an upper case ďXĒ.
(Eg. __X___)
3) If a comment is required or needed, just type in as short an answer as possible.
4) Try to answer all the questions if you can.

Please keep discussions separate from this thread and post suggestions on improvement of poll directly by e-mail to me or post in a separate thread. Thanks.
