Making a loan to repay a loan

Chained loans are a great improvement and would make loans more interesting and useful. Games would be more unpredictable and strategies more varied and complex. IMO.

BTW, I remember a rule for online play that says you can't transfer money to other players to prevent making a (big) loan and give it to another player (to constrain colluding and revenge acts).

On our site, this was never necessary.

Machiavelli is a rather complex game and it's not easy to establish a good game online. But even removing money altogether won't prevent NMRs (and bad play). I hope your Karma system works well. On our site, we didn't allow NMRs: The game would wait until someone would submit orders (current player or replacement).

ey Odoaker!, welcome back, I hope you play some more games.

My vote to chain loans!, they are very important.

Thank you Mansete! I will give it a shot when the loans are fixed.

Odoaker, I like this option of disallowing money transfers when you have a loan. I don't know if we really need it, but it's interesting.

So, except for the '25' unbalanced loans, your borrowing limit is:

Number of units, plus number of controlled provinces? And is that the total for just the principle? For example, if I've borrowed 10 for two years, and have a 8 units and 8 provinces, can I borrow another 6 ducats? Before I've paid the other principle (plus interest) off?
