    Default EMPIRE! CWBG VII: Dancing With Headless Princesses! (Fish, Saffron & Ginger Edition)

    This is an old thread. Go to this newer thread instead.


    EMPIRE!
    Gods, Kings & Adventurers
    A Community World=Building Game by Morph Bark

    Current Year: 396-400
    IC thread: click!
    Dice-Rolling thread: click!


    Welcome to EMPIRE! A game of gods, kings and adventurers. In this game, you will play a character, a ruler of a region. And once s/he dies, you will play their heir and so on, continuing on the family legacy. You scheme, discover and conquer your way towards becoming the most-remembered person in history. Respected, loved, feared.

    This world will start as a simple one similar to the early Middle Ages, but through the actions of players and random events the scope of the world will expand, science marches on and magic may even be introduced to some lucky ones. For now, magic is nowhere to be found, though monsters may exist in players’ regions or beyond their borders and supernatural phenomena can take place.

    Best beware if you want to ensure your legacy.


    If you want to become a player and all regions are currently taken, don't worry. New regions can always be added in during play, and we can put you on the waiting list in the meantime should no regions be available at this time. If Empire interests you, but you don't want to play the game, you can always partake in the Freeform RP threads that are open to everyone, or even in its World-Building threads. See the list at the end of this post.


    Be warned! This is primarily a game of world-building, but contains some strategic elements, secretive scheming, and both cooperation and vehement competition between players at times. It's all easy enough to understand once you've read through the rules of this post, and GREAT fun to play in and talk with all your co-world-builders in this thread, but keep in mind that in the game itself, IC, it can be a very bumpy ride. Let us ask questions, help each other, communicate, cooperate, build and have fun OOC, even as we bash each other's brains in IC.

    Also, if you have a question, and you can ask a player (about their region or people, for instance), ask them instead of the GM. If you can ask it in the thread, do that instead of via PM. The GM's PM inbox is regularly cleared and thus things can easily get lost, so try keep it to secret stuff and (IC) reactions to stuff you get in your own inbox.

    Spoiler: Stuff Already Determined
    Show
    Some regions are already partially determined in what resources or terrain features they have. If you are a new player to the game, you may contact Morph to see if the resources may be waived so you can use all of your own ideas for it. (As a new player you always start with 3 resources, so if a region listed below has less than 3, you always gain extra to bring you up to 3.)


    Region 69 has 120000 inhabitants, toma nuts as a Good resource, quartz as a Good resource and one undefined Good resource.

    The Glazzfel Hegemony has found region 82! It has 82.000 people and a Great resource of mud, thanks to the presence of small mud volcanoes. They seem great for mudbaths, though the residents looked on oddly, as they find the mud to be a kind of food for their kind. There is also a Good undefined resource.

    Tzalteclan has found region 84! It is a large plains region, with a very arid north. It has one undefined Good resource and one Good resource of gold.

    The Jarrs have found region 88! …why do these people have basket greatswords like Marrik? There are 84000 people, a Good resource of fish and a Good resource of saffron and ginger spices. The people have bred many kinds of fish they find pretty, and in some of their cities there are even fighting pools for some aggressive fish.

    Palas Caercia has found region 93! It has 69.000 people, a Good resource of gnarls and a Good undefined resource.

    The Jarrs have found region 124! Regions 120, 121 and 122 have been spotted nearby, 120 and 121 having thriving populaces (reserved by new players). Region 124 has two undefined Good resources. Region 122 has one undefined Great resource. (Jarrland receives only exploration bonus for region 124.)

    The Alydaxian Dominion has found region 132! It is a very humid and forested region with a cliffy cloast. The inhabitants are birdlike and colorful and tend to blend in well amongst the dense flowery canopy. It has one Great resource of dyes and one Good resource of ambrosia, created from nectar.

    The Alydaxian Dominion has found region 133! “Zhèxiē shì shénme xīyì zuò zài wǒmen de tǔdì?” It has 54000 people, a Good resource of rubber and a Good resource of shedding trees.

    Palas Caercia has found region 134! It has 99.000 people, a Good resource of leviathans and a Good undefined resource.


    A region number with an A after the number is an aboveground region that has another region situation below them, an underground region with the same number with a B (A for “above”, B for “below”). Regions marked “inactive” or "not yet active" are either not yet finished by the claiming player. Regions marked "available" are up for being claimed by prospective players on the waiting list as soon as several people are on the waiting list and the GM has expanded the map far enough to have room for them.

    Regions remain reserved for two weeks from the moment of reservation, after which the prospective player is taken off the list again.

    Due to high amount of interest, there is now a waiting list. If you wish to be put on this list, simply post to say so. If a player becomes inactive, you can take over their region, or if new regions are discovered through exploration. Later in play, certain "special" regions may be added as well.

    Default Re: EMPIRE! CWBG VII: Dancing With Headless Princesses! (Fish, Saffron & Ginger Editi

    ~ ~ Them's The Rules ~ ~

    Below in all the spoilers are the rules, with headers describing their general contents. Newly added rules are put in Green text. Some rules sections have [advanced] next to the title. These sections are a little more rules-intensive and aren't necessary to play the game, unless you want to perform the specific actions they deal with. New players do not need to read these sections until they feel they are ready and want to perform those actions. This helps making learning the game a little easier.


    A Note on Magic
    Magic is not available to the players unless explicitly given to them by the head GM throughout the course of the game. Empire is a low-magic setting overall. There are magical beasts, supernatural occurrences and the occasional miracle, but spells are only available to one in a thousand people in a handful of regions who have been explicitly given it by the head GM. Magic is purely fluff and rather low-power. Only when magic comes into conflict with itself does it escalate, meaning that while a mage is little threat on their own, a duel between mages can escalate over time as the magical power increases due to the conflict.


    Starting: Creating a Region
    Spoiler: The Basics
    Show
    In EMPIRE! you start play as the ruler of a country, the head of their family that rules one of the regions. You perform actions to improve your ruler and country and their position in the world through alliances, trade, finding your children suitable spouses, researching new technology and waging war. Once your ruler dies of old age, disease, accident or murder, their heir takes over, becoming your new ruling character controlling the nation.

    Describing Your Country
    When a new player enters the game, they first must claim a region and describe it in fluff. If there currently aren’t any claimable regions, or there are people on the waiting list, prospective new players are put on the waiting list to await their turn. Some regions are of a special type, which you can find below under "regions and region types".

    Population: A new region starts with a population of 30,000 + (10d10 x 1,000). Underground regions start with 15,000 + (8d10 x 1,000). Polar regions start with 3,000 + (3d10 x 1,000). If you take over an existing country from a retiring player, you don’t have to reroll Population. Population is increased by the GM every few rounds. War decreases the amount population is increased by, while having variety in food resources (in your region and imported) increases the amount.

    Terrain: Describe the physical features of your selected region, including three major landmarks—no more, no less.

    People: Describe what the people in the region generally look like. You are free to throw in little details about their culture as well. What race are they? What do they do in their daily lives? It might be a good idea to see what your neighbours’ people are like, because yours and theirs are likely similar in some ways, or at least have some interesting interaction possibilities.

    Resources: Describe three major resources that can be found in the region, as well as at least one resource the people will have to import from outside out of necessity or desire (for religious rituals or cultural reasons). You can have something that doesn't exist in the real world as a resource, such as special metals like mithril or adamantium, or things that would be great for alchemy or chemistry or certain technologies, but to start using these requires a technological advance of its own. It can prove hard to get it at first, but most things that are hard to acquire are very much worth it. These three resources start at [Good] quality. The import necessity will not be automatically satisfied; you have to strike a deal with a player who has it as a resource to trade it with you.

    You can trade resources with other players. If a resource is Good you can trade it resource with up to 3 other players and if the resource is Great you can trade it with up to 6 other players. Effectively, this means a Good resource has 4 ‘stacks’ of that resource, whereas a Great resource has 7 ‘stacks’ of that resource that can be used in that round. If you trade with other players, you effectively give them one stack of your resources every round in return for one stack of one of their resources (or in return for a service). One of these stacks always remains in the region it originates from. You cannot stockpile resources for later rounds.

    Religion: Religion is very important in EMPIRE! When a player enters the game, their people are either pagans (animist, shamanist, druidist, unorganised religions involved with spirits, ancestor worship) or adherents of the Lord of Fire. The Lord of Fire is the god of a monotheistic religion with the Blazing Avatar as its head, who resides in a temple city in the mountains. The Blazing Avatar is said to channel the Lord of Fire himself and is an important figure throughout the continent, but cannot directly interfere. Gaining his support can be helpful or have unusual effects. Players can introduce their own religions with a special action if they have a Faith score of 5 (see below), raising an existing spiritual cult to official status, introducing something entirely new, or making a major change to an existing religion in their region.

    Besides these things, regions also have a list of Technologies available in the region. The technology level at the start of the game is roughly early Medieval times, so things like plate armor, book-presses and complex siege weapons don't exist yet. Players can introduce new technologies through their actions (see below, under Curiosity).



    Region Types
    Spoiler: Regions
    Show
    The standard type of region is a land region. Land regions can have a large variety of terrain types and resources. Regions have a default limit of 4 resources per region, 2 of which can be Great resources. However, this can be expanded by using miracles (if appropriate to the religion), a Great Project using a technology that could help with the resource you want to add or upgrade, or GM-adjudicated event.

    A player can have no more than 5 regions under their direct control. To have more regions fall under their realm, they will have to vassalize other players, which requires having a Great Kingdom.

    Besides this standard region type there are several others:

    Underground Regions
    Underground regions are regions that occupy the same area as a land region, but are situated below them. They are noted in the tables by adding "below", "belowground", "underground" or simply a "B" behind the number. Not all land regions have an underground region below them. Check the atlas and region name table listing to see which regions have a known underground region below them. Some land regions may have an underground region below them without it being known yet. You can send explorers to check if there is one.

    Underground regions count as adjacent to adjacent underground regions and the region they are situated below, but not as adjacent to their aboveground companion region's neighbours. Underground regions have no hard restrictions on resources as of yet, though it makes more sense for them to more often have mined resources.

    Island Regions
    Island regions are easy to recognize from the map, as they are a region completely surrounded by sea (or near-completely, in case of a peninsula/island region combo). Island regions can be attacked and defended by any unit type (land, naval, aerial).

    Polar Regions
    Polar regions are regions that are near the North or South Pole. Polar regions have a hard cap on the amount of resources they can have. Namely, they can have no more than two resources native to the region and food resources cannot rise above Good quality.



    Starting: Creating Your First Ruler
    Spoiler: Rulers
    Show
    All player characters have the following attributes: Diplomacy, Military, Curiosity, Faith and Luck. When a new player starts, they roll 1d4 for each attribute, and then place them where they want. They may add 1 point to two of their attributes beyond that.

    You can make your rolls in this linked thread. Be sure to read the guidelines in the opening post there, and link to it in your compilation post with the ruler and country info. If you roll more than one 1, you may reroll any 1s beyond the first once. If you have more than two 1s after the reroll, those 1s become 2s (you are still left with two 1s).

    Changing Rulers
    Changing rulers is a non-action. If your current character dies or abdicates the throne, their heir takes their place. Usually this is the oldest child, but other succession laws may be in place (oldest son or oldest daughter, for instance). Roll 1d4 for their attributes, in order. They get a +1 in any attributes that their parent had a 4 or higher in; and a +2 in any attributes their parent had an 8 or higher in. Children who are adopted also receive these bonuses (children are always adopted at a young age and thus their new parent has a profound effect on their education).

    If the new ruler is not a child of a previous ruler, they only get a +1 to two attribute scores (chosen freely), but may arrange the rolled scores freely, as with the first ruler of a new player. Regents who rule while the heir waits to come of age fall under this category as well. Regents cannot perform Special Actions. Regents can become legitimate rulers through a coup d'état and ridding themselves of the heir who would otherwise become the next legitimate ruler. This will enable regents to perform Special Actions.

    If you change rulers during a round, use your former ruler’s attribute scores for this round. Effectively, their decrees and commands for the current period are still in effect. If you decide to change rulers before the round starts, you can change them at the start of the turn, in which case you will use your new ruler’s attribute scores. If you want to change rulers before a round starts, you must note in the post of the previous round that you will be switching rulers. You must do this before that round ends, because posts edited after that round has ended will not have their actions be counted.

    Please link the rolled stats for your new ruler in your IC post in which they first come into play.



    Rounds
    Spoiler: Rounds
    Show
    Each round will take (roughly) one OOC week (5 years in-game) and will be announced by the GM when it starts. The GM will close the previous rounds first and use the intermediate time between closing a round and starting the next to update information and create Events. During each round you have five actions you can spend doing things.

    Rounds are one week. If players haven't posted by the end of that week, their round is considered wasted. If all players have posted before the end of that week, the next round may start sooner. Rounds start on Sunday morning. Some players may only have time on weekends, and I figure they still might not have all weekends available. This way, they can post one round's actions on Saturday, and the next round's actions the day after, not needing to worry about it until Saturday two weeks later (unless they have conversations standing with other players).

    Important to note is that the effects of actions don’t kick in until the end of the round. Armies raised in a round can therefore not be used until the next round, attribute increases only are added at the end of the round, and newly discovered resources or newly acquired technologies cannot be used until the round after they were introduced in your region. This is primarily because it makes keeping track easier for the GM and co-GMs.

    New Player Bonus Actions
    New players receive five bonus actions in their first round. This is so that new players can catch up with older players, using the actions to raise a number of troops, use Attribute 5 Special actions or even start with a finished Great Project. That’s right: you may spend multiple of these bonus actions on the same Great Project, resulting in a finished Great Project if you spend all of them on it. New players are barred from a few things with these bonus actions, however. These bonus actions may not be used to explore or colonize other regions.

    Because aspiring players are put on the waiting list until there are multiple of them, new players can cooperate and coordinate their bonus actions to great effect, allowing starting players to make a big impact.

    Secret Actions
    You can spend one of your five actions in a turn doing a secret action. This secret action can be anything you want to keep secret from other players, such as a secret Great Project, spreading (false) technology, covert religious conversion or sending spies to another region to discover secret plots, for example. You have to send this secret action to the GM for verification, otherwise it will not be counted. Secret actions can be revealed at a later date, either by the player, the GM, or through the actions of other players.

    Secret actions do not count for attribute increases.


    Secret actions have been removed for the time being, because I won't have enough time to deal with them for the foreseeable future.

    Projects
    Some things may take more than one round to complete. These are called ‘projects’, and you need to spend one action per round on them. You cannot spend more than one action per round on a project. Some take only 2 rounds, like making the roads a little better between your cities. Some are Great Projects that take 5 rounds, like making a road network between all your towns, cities, fortresses and bordering countries, a Great Wall, an Underway or some amazing wondrous building.

    Acquiring New Regions
    New regions can be acquired and come under your control in several ways. Conquest is one of the simplest ones (detailed under Military below). Another is by marrying yourself or your heir to the heir of that region, as long as the marriage makes it so that they become part of your family (instead of your heir becoming part of theirs, which would mean game-over unless you change who your heir is). This might be easy with NPC-controlled regions, and likely impossible with player-controlled regions. Pressing a marriage claim, ancestral claim or land claim to a region is detailed under Diplomacy.

    Another way is by exploring and finding other regions and colonizing them through conquest or diplomacy, setting up trading posts or puppet rulers under your control in those regions.

    Increasing Attributes
    Every turn a player has completed their actions, they list at the end of their post what attributes they increase. Players’ rulers get a +1 increase if they dedicate two actions to actions related to a particular attribute, so if you use two actions to raise army units you have spent two actions on Military actions, for example. This would mean you then increase your Military by +1 at the end of the round. Since you have five actions, you can therefore increase two scores by +1 or one score by +2 if you spend four actions doing things related to a single attribute.

    Please note clearly at the end of your post in the IC thread which attributes you increase so that co-GM TheWombatOfDoom can clearly note it in his tables. Attribute scores are capped at 10 and each provides special kinds of actions at scores 5 and 10, some of which can only be performed once per ruling character.

    What Attribute Does an Action Belong To?
    Because it can often be unclear what attribute an action belongs to (and might increase), allow me to clarify.

    General: Any action that requires an attribute roll belongs to that attribute. Attribute’s Special actions always belong to their attribute. Doing any actions specifically underlined under an attribute’s rules—such as setting up trade posts under Curiosity—belongs to that attribute.

    Diplomacy: Forming alliances, arranging marriages or betrothals for your character or their relatives, changing laws—unless those laws specifically apply to military or religious endeavors.

    Military: Any action to raise troops or militia or utilize their services.

    Curiosity: Anything that has to do with trade or investigation—unless said investigation specifically falls under a different attribute (for instance, by utilizing military forces or priests, which may alter the results).

    Faith: Religious gatherings, prayers, dealing with the heads or priests of your religion or those of others.



    Diplomacy
    Spoiler: Diplomacy
    Show
    A higher Diplomacy score decreases chances of riots and rebellions in any lands you hold and chances of finding a good spouse. It also increases the chances of NPCs agreeing to proposals you offer.

    Actions
    Forming alliances, arranging a marriage or betrothal for your character or their children, changing laws.

    Diplomacy 5 Special
    If you have a score of 5 in Diplomacy, you can spend an action to stabilize a single region. This will prevent riots or rebellions from breaking out, which are common if you aren’t importing your people’s Import Necessity from another region, there are other claimants to the throne, the ruler is of a different religion than the people, or the country is being wrecked by natural disaster. The stability will last until the end of the ruler’s reign and may last beyond it if the region is treated well.

    Diplomacy 10 Special: If you have a score of 10 in Diplomacy, you may combine stable regions that you control into a bigger one and claim a higher title.
    • 4 or more adjacent regions combine into a Great Kingdom, becoming a Great King. Great Kings have one bonus action per round. You lose the title if you ever control less than 4 adjacent regions.
    • 12 regions (including vassals) combine into an Empire, becoming an Emperor. You must already have a Great Kingdom. Emperors have two bonus actions per round. You lose the title if you ever control less than 12 regions.


    If you attempt to form a Great Kingdom, it will be handy if you link to earlier posts where you performed the Diplomacy 5 action to stabilize any regions that are not your home region. This doesn't just help us see that you've done it for all of them, but it also gives you a double-check for yourself on each of the regions.



    Military
    Spoiler: Military
    Show
    Military actions are things that involve training or using armies, navies and aerial units in both offense and defense.

    Actions
    Raising a military unit (1000 soldiers; whether it’s an army unit, naval unit or aerial unit), training militia, defending your land or invading another region, building fortifications.

    Unit Types
    There are three unit types: land units (army units), naval units and aerial units. Land units can attack land regions and underground regions. Naval units can attack coastal regions, and if they do they can also be attacked by land units. Naval units can be used in defense of a region only against attacks by naval units. The exception to this is island regions, which naval units can also defend against land units and aerial units. Aerial units can attack land regions, but if they do they can also be attacked by land units.

    Units cannot go through countries that aren’t allied or don’t specifically allow it, so if you wish to attack a specific country that you can only reach by going through countries you aren’t allied with and that haven’t specifically allowed you to go through, then you’ll have to fight them first. If the regions you’d have to go through do not have units, you can just march on through with no resistance.

    Training Military Units
    You can raise 1000 troops (one military unit) in one action. You must specify in this action whether they are land units (army), naval units (navy at sea) or aerial units. Also, if you have control over multiple regions, you must specify in which region you train them.

    If you want to have naval units with boats, you need to have access to wood (at least as a minor resource). If you want to equip your armies with weapons, you need to have access to appropriate materials (wood, certain metals, etc). For aerial units, you need some method of flight (flying creatures, appropriate technology, magic, etc).

    The maximum amount of troops you can raise from your capital region is 10.000. The maximum amount of troops you can raise from other regions you control is 5000. Armies can never be larger than 10% in any region you control, which means that if your capital region has less than 100.000 inhabitants, or any other region you control has less than 50.000, you cannot raise up to the maximum amount of troops.

    Military units do not last indefinitely. Countries cannot maintain large standing armies, as many people will return to their towns, families and daily jobs after their term of service. A standing army of 3000 troops in each region you have can be maintained indefinitely, but every few rounds (at least 3), armies will decay and some troops will become ordinary civilians again. The amount of units that disappear in your capital region equals 10 – ½ your Military score – 3 if you’ve been in a war since the last decay. If this would put the amount of military units below 3000 in a region, the amount is instead set to 3000. If you have multiple unit types in a region, aerial units decay first, then naval, then land, stopping with decay at 1000 troops each.

    Training Militia
    You can train militia members to defend against invasions. With one action you can raise all your potential militias in all your regions. Your potential militias are equal to one 20% of your total population minus your amount of military troops in that region. If you are being invaded at the moment you try to train militia, a lot of people will be too occupied with getting their families to safety, so you will only be able to raise half the amount of people that would otherwise be available as militia. Every 2 units of militia (so every 2000 militia members) give a +1 bonus to Military rolls, making them only half as effective as normal military units. Militias only remain active until the end of the next round. For example, if you trained militia in round 4, they would remain active until the end of round 5. Like all actions, militias only come into effect at the end of the round and thus only function during the one round that comes after the round they’ve been trained in.

    Using Military Units
    You can use a single action in a round to direct the movement of all of your troops--from which regions they move and to which regions they move.

    When one of your armies clashes with that of another player or those of an NPC, both sides roll 2d10 and add their leader’s Military score and the armies’ size (+1 per unit of 1000). The controller of the region may get a bonus based on defensible terrain in the region. Either side may get a bonus if they have technology that the enemy does not if that technology can be practically used in war.

    Allies can help attack or defend a region they have army units in. If a battle takes place between more than two armies, allies only use the highest Military score available to them (or whichever player’s ruler leads the army). However, all sides must take an action to partake in the battle. The players who lead the armies must each make a Military check (2d10+their Military score+number of units under their command in that region+applicable bonuses).

    If you have multiple battles going on at the same time, you have to decide which one your ruler is leading. All other battles your country is involved in, but your ruler is not leading personally, only get half the ruler's Military score as a bonus.

    If you win two battles in a row (one in one round, the second in the next) against the same opponent in the same region, you drive them out of that region or rout their forces. If you are the invader, that means you seize control over that region. In the next round, you will probably have to spend the Diplomacy 5 Special Action on that region to stabilize it, though the rebel leader can still fight back against you if it was their last region (see Second Chances below).

    Calculating Losses
    The loser of a battle loses an amount of units equal to half the difference in roll results, rounded up. If the results were 11 and 6, that means the loser loses [{11 – 6}/2, rounded up] units, so 3 units. The winning side will have 1d4 x 10% of the base losses of the losing side (rounded down). The leaders of the battle (those supplying the Military scores and/or Winning Tactics) have a 50% chance of losing an additional 1000 troops, unless they were the only participant on their side of the battle. Each participant on either side (including leaders) that sends 2000 troops or more has a 50% chance of losing an additional 1000 troops. If no units remain on one side, their leaders are captured by the other side.

    Tactical Maneuvering
    You can use an action to perform tactical maneuvering. One tactical maneuvering action only affects a single battle in one region and is a Military check (2d6+Military). If both an attacking player and a defending player in the same region do this, the one with the higher result decides which part of that region the battle takes place in. Check a region's Terrain description to see what sort of terrain is available that a Winning Tactic might apply to, or provide some solid reasoning based on the map. Not all types of terrain are available in any of the regions.

    Military 5 Special
    If you have a Military score of 5, you can introduce agents. Agents are special operatives with specialized skills. Use one word to describe a profession or skillset. You will receive a +2 bonus on any rolls in which agents are involved and the particular action requires extensive use of that skillset.

    To train agents and use a Military 5 Special action to create them, you must either have a resource in any of your regions that is a particular kind of people (like ‘Craftsmen’ or ‘Athletes’) or you must have a finished Great Project in the form of a school (like the Kasumor Academy for Culture and Prowess). This makes agents perfect for a specific type of job and often useful as spies or for secret actions.

    You can have only one type of agent at any time. Introducing a new type with a different set of skills based on a different resource or Great Project school makes it replace the old one.

    Military 10 Special
    If you have a Military score of 10, you can introduce a Winning Tactic. A Winning Tactic gives you a +4 bonus to all Military rolls in one specific kind of terrain.

    Winning Tactics apply to one type of area only, as determined at the time the player introduces their Winning Tactic or until they change it with a new Military 10 action. They can only be utilized in regions that actually have the type of area. The following area types are examples of possibilities:
    • Mountains
    • Hills
    • Plains
    • Desert (hot and dry; does not include arctic desert)
    • Forest (includes underground [mushroom] forests)
    • Swamp
    • Inland Waters (lakes, rivers, etc.)
    • Coastal
    • Open Sea
    • Deep Ocean (underwater)
    • Underground (excluding underground forests and waters)
    • Arctic
    • Sky (requires aerial units)


    Attacks with naval units on a region can be coastal battles or take place in an area immediately adjacent to the coast or part of the coast. Coastal cliffs, for example, count as mountains in such a scenario, though from a land attack they wouldn't.

    Underground regions can benefit greatly from an Underground Winning Tactic, but underground battles can also take place in underground forests or near underground lakes or rivers.



    Curiosity
    Spoiler: Curiosity
    Show
    A lot of people are naturally inquisitive. Some like inventing things, other like exploring things for the sake of knowledge, some others find new ways to improve doing things people do every day. Curiosity is basically how a character handles things like science and economics. Creating new things, such as buildings, roads, fleets, mines and so on, takes time and effort. Clever people know ways to make it easier, quicker, and better. However, creating defensive structures or building things with the army is a Military endeavor rather than a Curious one.

    Actions
    Searching for new resources, inventing new things, searching for new knowledge, investigation, changing education systems, building schools.

    Acquiring Technology
    You can get new technologies three ways: invent it with a Curiosity 10 Special Action, get it from a friendly player, or steal it.

    If another region that you don't control has access to technology that you don't, you can send people to acquire that technology for you, either by force or by diplomatic agreement with the other player. They can just give it to you, but otherwise you can make an opposed Curiosity check, rolling 2d6+your Curiosity against 2d6+their Curiosity. If you roll higher, you acquire the technology (but only one kind of technology per action).

    Investigation
    There are two types of investigations: investigating new ways to acquire or apply knowledge, doing little projects to fluff furthering the knowledge of your country, essentially furthering science in ways that don’t require the invention of new technologies; and investigating things relating to GM-introduced events. The latter is generally what the head GM responds to, as the former is purely fluff—though it can be used as IC justification for why and how your people could have the necessary knowledge base to create a new technology in the future.

    Investigation requires a Curiosity check (2d6+Curiosity), with a TN set beforehand that can differ wildly depending on what is being investigated. You can have great success with it, moderate success, or no outcome at all depending on the results of the check.

    Curiosity 5 Special
    If you have a Curiosity score of 5, you become able to introduce a new resource in one of your regions (either previously unknown or only a Minor Resource) or upgrade existing Good Resource to a Great Resource. A Good Resource can be traded to up to 3 other regions. A Great Resource can be traded to up to 6 other regions. You can find unique resources (such as mithril, adamantine, etc) in your region, but you must be able to reasonably justify it. Such special resources require you to research technology to really utilize it. This action can only be done once per ruler.

    When a new resource comes into play, the head GM will decide whether it is a special resource that requires getting a technology upgrade (Curiosity 10 Special Action) first to start meaningfully using it, like for things like the military. Aerial unit creation always requires a technology, for instance. Using the special abilities of supernatural creatures also requires a technology to create the appropriate training programs.

    Curiosity 10 Special
    If you have a Curiosity score of 10, you become able to introduce a new technology in your regions. This requires that you already have prerequisite technologies and any resources that are necessary either through trade or as a Good or Great Resource in one of your regions. This action can only be done once per ruler.

    Be sure to check if any other players already have technologies you might use to help you, either because it's exactly what you want, or because it's a step in the right direction to help you make the technology you want.



    Faith
    Spoiler: Faith
    Show
    Your relations with the Temple of the Lord of Fire (or the head of your new organised religion) is determined by your Faith score instead of your Diplomacy score.

    Actions
    Maintaining ties with the head of your religion, creating unity among your people, maintaining morale in times of trouble, building temples or tombs.

    Converting People
    If there are regions that you are allies with, trade with (or through) or have an army in, you can spend an action to make a minority of the people there take on your religion (if it is organized). Roll 2d6+your ruler’s Faith against 2d6+their ruler’s Faith (+4 if there is a holy order of a different religion in that region). If your result is higher, you introduce a religious minority of your religious to that region. If there is already a minority present from an earlier round, you can increase this to a majority with the same kind of check (but add another +2 to the “defender”). Only one religious majority can be present in a region at a time.

    If the ruler of that region does not oppose your conversion with a Faith check of their own (opposing conversion does not require an action, but must be noted in their post with a link to the roll), or if they simply forget to make the check, you instead check against the population's base resistance of 10+defensive bonuses (including Holy Order bonuses).

    If you do not wish to have a certain religious minority (or majority) in your region, you can wage Holy Civil War on them or re-convert them. Make either a Military check or a Faith check (2d6+your relevant attribute). If you roll an 8 or higher (11 for a religious majority), they are converted to your primary religion. If you used Military, many of them are exterminated (1d3x1000 for a minority, [1d4+1]x1000 for a majority).

    Rulers may spend an action to convert to a new religion, but this may upset the stability of any regions they control that don’t have a majority following that religion.

    A religious majority in a region can be made to be the only religion in that region with another successful Faith check, but the "defender" gets a +4 bonus to their check. If the ruler of the region is trying to convert their own people, the base resistance gives a TN of 14 to hit to succeed.

    Faith 5 Special
    If you have a Faith score of 5, you become able to start a new religion and appoint a head of the religion. At least half of the people in your capital region and most of those in the regions you control will convert, turning it into the religious majority of your capital region and a religious minority in all other regions you control. This can only be done once per ruler, and you should probably do it no more than once--unless you want to make some really big changes to the religion.

    Faith 5 Special
    If you follow an organized religion, you may form a Holy Order in one of your regions if you have permission from the head of the religion (the player who created it). If you are invaded by someone of a different religion, regions with a Holy Order in them give you an extra +½ to your Military rolls. This can only be done once per ruler and they cannot have been the one to create the organized religion.

    Faith 10 Special
    If you follow an organized religion, you may request a miracle from the deity/spirit/force or one of the deities/spirits/forces that you worship. The miracle must fit with the deity/spirit/force’s theme and portfolio. Miracles can destabilize enemy regions, help win battles, uncover new or increase existing resources (from Minor or nonexistent to Good, or from Good to Great), and so on. The GM makes the call on what actually happens (and it will not have happened until the start of the next round), but you are free to request nearly anything as long as it fits the one from whom you request the miracle.



    Luck
    Spoiler: Luck
    Show
    Some effects of Luck are currently unknown. Luck also cannot be increased the normal way. Instead, every round the players take a vote and choose three players that have done a good job of expanding the fluff of the world as a whole or their own regions or characters. Those three players receive a +1 Luck bonus. In addition, the head GM will hand out a +1 Luck separately. Thus, there could be four players receiving +1 Luck, or one player receiving +2 Luck and two players receiving +1 Luck. This is an attribute increase in addition to the normal attribute increases decided by the players’ actions, because no actions are directly Luck-related. Luck checks are occasionally used for secret actions and other actions that have a questionable outcome that does not directly relate to any of the other attributes.

    Luck 5 Special: By spending one action entirely on focusing on the entrappings of fate, you can make a roll used in one of your other actions during that round become the maximum amount you could roll for it minus two, so 10 for a roll of 2d6 or 18 for a roll of 2d10. This can only be used once per ruler.

    Luck 10 Special: By spending one action entirely on focusing on the entrappings of fate, you can make yourself succeed automatically on a task that requires a roll used in one of your other actions during that round, even if you would otherwise have been unable to hit the required Target Number. This cannot be used on a battle check. This can only be used once per ruler.

    Luck 10 Special: Does something amazing.

    Country Relationships & Ways of Expansion [advanced]
    Spoiler: Country Relationships
    Show
    There are several ways in which countries can cooperate more tightly than an alliance might allow, and many ways in which a country can expand its size and influence.

    Diplomatic Colonization
    Colonizing new regions can be done either through military force or diplomacy. Diplomacy does not require the presence of military units, but if another player's military units are present in a colonization attempt of their own, the military units' presence supersede any diplomatic attempts at colonization. Regions with military units in them cannot be colonized and must be either conquered or claimed.

    When colonizing a region, you must make a Diplomacy check (2d6+Diplomacy). If the result is at least 10, you succeed in getting the people of the region on your side and therefore the first round of colonization is successful. The second round does not require a roll unless you are opposed.

    For every region a player has beyond their capital region, the Target Number rises by +2. If the target region they are trying to colonize does not border their capital region, the Target Number rises by +2 as well. For example, if a ruler with four regions tries to colonize a region that borders one of their regions, but does not border their capital region, the TN for the Diplomacy check is 18.


    Sometimes, more than one player is trying to colonize the same region through Diplomacy. If this happens, either one of the players decides to stop and go look elsewhere, or they both make the Diplomacy check to see who is more successful in the colonization. They do this during both rounds of the colonization process. The person who wins the first check gains a +2 bonus on the opposed check during the second round. The winner of the Diplomacy check during the second round is the one who successfully colonizes the region entirely. Of course, a player may choose not to continue colonization if they lost the opposed check during the first round.

    This also means that if someone starts colonization in a later round than someone else, they’ve already lost, unless they bring military troops instead. (Military force will thwart diplomatic missionaries, but will certainly be opposed by the people there, who may ally themselves with the diplomatic missionaries’ country of origin and rebel against the invaders.)

    The player who discovered the region gets a +2 bonus to the Diplomacy check. This is so that explorers do get a bit of an edge, but don’t start the actual colonization process yet and may still be thwarted by more diplomatically successful colonizers.

    Pressing Claims on Other Countries
    A situation has arisen! Another country is without a ruler! Or perhaps they have a ruler that you simply don't like very much, while you do like their land?

    In case they happen to be a player, you can stake your claim and press it in an act of war! Don't forget to send your declaration of war to them!

    In case they happen to be an NPC, you're in luck! It's pretty easy to press claims on them. In the world of Telluris, nobody knows why some just happen to be easier to press against. Perhaps the Weave of Fate simply weaves more strongly around those who might alter the course of history.

    You can press a claim if you:
    1. Have a relative of your ruler married to a direct descendant of one of the target region's earlier rulers. The more recent that ruler ruled, the stronger the claim!
    2. Have ancestral ties to the target region. These claims are generally less strong than a marriage claim, unless a large amount of your people can trace their lineage back to that region. [This only works for regions, not full countries.]
    3. The target country used to be part of your country, but they split off due to either revolution or peaceful splitting on part of either the people or previous rulers of your country.
    4. You've fabricated a claim in an earlier round that was still during your current ruler's rule.


    To press a claim, you must:
    1. Spend an action on it, of course!
    2. Roll a Diplomacy check and link it in your actions post (just like all other rolls should be).
    3. If the result is at least 10, there is some support for your claim. If the result is at least 15, there is a lot of support for your claim. If there are other players pressing claims at the same time, the highest roll wins.


    If you have some support (check result of at least 10) and have rolled the highest, you must spend another action next round to gather more support for your claim (requiring another Diplomacy check result of at least 10). If you have a lot of support (check result of at least 15) and have rolled the highest, you'll have claimed the target region or country by the end of this round.

    Other claimants (players with a claim) who lost may attempt to create rebellions in the target region or country in a revenge attempt--or a final resort to get the target region or country for themselves should the rebellion prove successful somehow.

    Claimants may also forfeit their claim to support another claimant, providing a +2 to the other claimant's Diplomacy check result. Rulers of neighbouring regions that border the region being claimed may support claims as well, providing a +2 bonus to those they support. The bonuses from multiple neighbouring rulers do not stack.



    Trade Posts
    Players are able to set up trading posts in coastal regions if that coast borders an ocean that one of their own regions borders as well, or in regions that border one of their regions directly by land. A trading post takes one round to set up. Once set up, the player effectively gains a one-stack copy of one of the resources in that region that is shipped to their capital region. This does not decrease any available stacks of that resource to the player who controls that region.

    A region can only have two Trade Posts in it. The Trade Posts may have two different resources they copy a stack from, but if they want to copy it from the same resource, that resource must be a Great resource.

    A trade post can be attacked and attempted to be seized by other players with a military action (an act of war) or by buying them out. To seize it with military action, you need to send troops to it. If they are unopposed, they succeed. If they are opposed, you seize it if you manage to defeat the opposing troops. To buy them out, you need to succeed at an opposed Curiosity check (the defender gets a +2 bonus to this check).

    If the player controlling the region a trade post is in takes over that trade post, it is effectively destroyed. If another player takes it over, they can destroy it with an action or let the region’s controlling player destroy it, if they wish, or they can start using it as their own.



    Vassals and Lieges
    The nations which rule over other nations (known as “Lieges”) do so in two primary ways: either by agreement from the natives, or by takeover through conquest, colonization or presses of claims. The following rules deal with the former, in which the natives of a region strike an agreement with a more powerful state. To become a Liege, you must already have a Great Kingdom.

    In this kind of relationship the larger, more powerful country is called the Liege and the smaller one the Vassal. Liege and Vassal states commonly share borders or both have a coast on the same ocean. Liege and Vassal states do not have to share borders in this manner, but not sharing borders will allow the lands that lie between them to block transport of resources and troops. To become a Liege state a country must have a Great Kingdom with at least one military unit trained in each of their regions.

    There are two ranks of vassal: lesser vassals and greater vassals. Usually a country has specific names or ranks for these. A lesser vassal is limited to their liege’s amount of regions - 1. Lesser and greater vassals may use one of the Liege’s scores in place of theirs, once per round. This cannot be used for Special actions. A greater vassal is not limited in the amount of regions they may have.

    A greater vassal is defined as a vassal who has formed a Great Kingdom. A vassal can only form a Great Kingdom if its Liege has an Empire. Greater vassals can have vassals of their own, but those vassals can only be lesser vassals. Lesser vassals of a greater vassal may use one of the scores of their direct Liege (the greater vassal) or their ultimate Liege (the Emperor/Empress). They may still only do this once per round. Lesser vassals cannot form a Great Kingdom.

    When a player forms an Empire, any time they switch to a new ruler, that ruler gains extra attribute bonuses. For each greater vassal that an Empire has, they receive one +1 bonus to one of their attributes. The attribute that receives the +1 bonus for a particular greater vassal is chosen by the player of the greater vassal, allowing them to give their Liege a higher attribute of their choice. Usually this will be an attribute that the greater vassal sees themselves wanting to use, but won’t be increasing through their own actions.

    Certain agreements may be signed after discussion between players in addition to the standard rules for Vassals and Lieges. Marriage agreements and some tribute in resources are often one of them. Some lieges forbid their vassals certain actions, like spreading religions not their own or aggressive military actions. Others require them.



    Federation
    A Federation is a group of countries who band together to form one country, with the constituent countries becoming ‘states’. Each of these states functions the same as a non-confederated country played by any other player and can have colonies of their own.

    Forming a Federation
    Forming a Federation requires at least three participating players/countries, all of whose regions must be politically stable (due to being primary regions or through Diplomacy 5 Special actions). Each must set up a Great Project to create the Federation together, and the Federation isn’t created until all three (or more) Great Projects are finished. If another player wants to join the Federation, it is a small project (2 rounds) for them and a small project for one of the members of the Federation, thus making it harder and take more time to join a Federation than it would to join an alliance.

    If one of the participants in the creation of a Federation is unable to post their actions during a week, they may count their Great Project as having continued that round regardless, if they do post the round after that and continue it. Unlike normal Great Projects, the forming or joining of a Federation cannot be assisted by others.

    Benefits of a Federation
    Members of a Federation can make diplomatic agreements of alliance for the Federation as a whole, or trade agreements for any regions that are part of the Federation. However, if the state controlling a region part of such an agreement does not agree with an agreement another Federation member makes, they may veto the agreement.

    The heads of the states within a Federation each specialize in a particular political style (kind of like they are ministers in a parliament or senators from different political parties). All members must choose one attribute (Diplomacy, Military, Curiosity or Faith) to specialize in. They gain one extra action per round, but must spend two of their actions during any round on that attribute. They must also choose one attribute that they neglect, and they may never spend actions on things related to that attribute. Of course, they can be clever and spend it on similar actions that just happen to be related to another attribute as well, but keep in mind that some actions are very clear on what attribute they belong to. Anything requiring an attribute roll is clearly related to that attribute, for example, and exploration is always Curiosity.

    If a player who is in a Federation cannot post during a round, other members of the Federation may take their specialized actions. For example, if the player specializes in Diplomacy, the other members may take two Diplomacy actions on their behalf. Two members of a Federation may specialize in the same attribute, but no more than that.

    If a member of a Federation posts less than five actions during a round, it’s okay if none of them are of their specialized attribute, just as long as none of the actions are of their forbidden attribute.

    Downsides of a Federation
    No member states of a Federation may be a Great Kingdom or form one. If an aspiring member state has a Great Kingdom, they must dissolve it before starting their project to create or join a Federation. Aspiring members of a Federation may not be Wards of a country that isn’t part of that Federation, but they may be Wards of a Federation member state. When the country joins the Federation, they are free from their Liege and no longer are a Ward, as they are now on equal level as them within the Federation.



    Game Over and Second Chances
    Spoiler: Game Over and Second Chances
    Show
    It's Game Over for you if your character dies without an heir, or if their heir is married into another family.

    If all your regions have been lost, your ruling character (or their heir if your ruling character dies in an invasion) can become a rebel leader. They can try to take back their lost region (or acquire a new one) until their death, but while they have rebel leader status they have only two actions per round. This allows a player a second chance when they lose their last region.

    As an alternative, a player for whom it’s game over may re-apply for a new region as any other new player can. They are then put on the waiting list, unless there are new regions already available. They then start anew, fluffing the new region (unless it comes pre-fluffed) and making a new ruling character to start with.



    Inactive Players
    Spoiler: Inactive Players
    Show
    If a player goes absent, I'll PM them three rounds later, and if they haven't posted by the fourth round afterwards, the region can be re-claimed by a new player for one week. If nobody claims it (feel free to invite someone to), then it becomes an NPC nation. If a new player claims it they may decide to simply take over the region as it is the way the old player left it, unless the old player gave note that they want their region to go away if they leave. However, if the old player had any marriages with other player's families, they can lay claim to it, and I won't make the old region go away. Instead, it becomes a free-for-all for all those who have a claim to it, plus whatever rebel forces there may be.

    Sometimes a player can be only temporarily absent. If a player does not post during a round, but others are using actions to make and confirm deals with the temporarily absent player, and the GM knows about it beforehand, then the action holds without the absent player having to spend an action on it. (I mean, they couldn’t anyway, because they’re absent at that time.) If the absent player gives a note about their absence for that week (or more than a week) beforehand, it should be completely fine. If a player is attacked during such a time, they are assumed to be spending an action to commit all their forces to the defense of their country for that round.

    If a player hasn't posted during a round, they receive one bonus action for the round after that. If they haven't posted for two rounds, they receive two bonus actions for the first round in which they post after that, unless they have restarted in a new region at that point.

    It is also a possibility that players leave us during the game, simply because they’re unable to continue due to prioritized commitments or for other reasons. In such a case, the link to the post compiling their information will be stored in case the player might return in the future to take things up again elsewhere. We heartily welcome new players, as well as returning ones.

    Trade & Alliances

    For Trade and Alliance updates, see the updates post above, or Here.

    For the Trade and Resource thread, where you can see all the trade details, go Here. All trade details are listed there from now on.

    1. The prospecting nation must agree to all grand Coalition arraignments and pacts.
    2. The prospecting nation must have or make a trade agreement with at least 1 signatory nation.
    3. The prospecting nation must have its application approved by all or a majority of the signatory nations.
    4. In case of non unanimous but majority approval the prospecting nation gains Junior signatory nation status, gaining all benefits of membership excepting a vote in Coalition decisions.
    5. Junior signatory nations may apply for Signatory nation status once for every 5 years of membership. This requires full approval by all current Signatory Nations.


    Voting
    There shall be two terms under which votes shall be carried out: Majority and Full
    • A Majority vote is used for minor administrative matters and needs only a majority approval to pass.
    • A Full vote is used for major Coalition decisions such as admitting a Full Member, determining Coalition-Wide projects or wars, or constitutional amendments and will require a unanimous-2 vote for approval.

    Participants: Ignato Empire, Genivana, and Hrathan-Tuor.
    Spoiler: Triumvirate Constitution
    Show
    Participants: Ignato Empire (Consisting of the territories of Aloren, Nyroth, & Woodwind), Genivana, Hrathan-Tuor (Containing the region known as Grizzland)

    The following document is to be the first and greatest of its kind, a unification of nations under one government, a balanced distribution and sharing of powers intended to bring great prosperity to the entirety of all their people. Unification will be the path forward and with this coming together a great and powerful entity might be born.

    Governmental Duties of the Member States
    The Triumvirate shall become an entirely new government becoming the new ruling body over the now former Ignato Empire, Genivana, and Hrathan-Tuor. The ruler and line of succession of the Imperial throne shall not be altered and the title of Emperor or Empress shall be retained by the ruling member of the Ignato line. Further the High Guildmaster of Hrathan-Tuor will retain his primary role under the new title, High Speaker of the Senate, and the royal lineage of Genivana shall step down and the third position of leadership filled by the Radurjic faith.

    The Emperor
    The duties of the Emperor shall be primarily concerned with military matters of the Triumvirate, responsible for raising troops, building military fortifications, leading the Empire in times of war, and all such matters that might fall under the marshal heading. So too may the Emperor attend to Diplomatic events and those of Curiosity, however the Emperor shall under no circumstances pursue matters of Faith, this being the priority and responsibility of the Radurjic Faith in Genivana.

    High Speaker of the Senate
    The High Speaker of the Senate shall be the High Guildmaster Loki Ethmorl until such a time of his abdication or death in which his heir shall be nominated for the position of High Speaker of the Senate and shall be appointed the position upon the approval of the majority of the Senators. Should a majority disapprove of the Speaker's direct heir the remaining heirs of the Speaker shall be nominated and whosoever amongst them receives the plurality of the votes shall be elected High Speaker of the Senate. The duties of the High Speaker of the Senate shall be primarily in regards to Curiosity pursuits ensuring continued advancement within the realms of scientific and cultural development. So too shall the High Speaker participate in Diplomatic actions necessitating his attention and may in times of need act as a supplementary Military leader alongside the Emperor. The High Speaker is however forbidden to interfere with matters of Faith, who's primary duty shall fall to the hands of the leader of the Radurjic Faith in Genivana.

    Radurjic Faith
    The Radurjic Faith and it's leaders shall hold primary concerns of the Empire in matters of Faith. The Shahidi Mkuu, found and guided by Radurjan law shall lead this third branch of the Radurjic faith and in the absence of the Shahidi Mkuu the Chuo wa Mashahidi shall rule in his/her stead. Aside from the responsibilities of Faith the head of Radurja so too shall be able to pursue Diplomatic issues and pursue matters of scientific and cultural Curiosity. The Faith shall not however, under any circumstances interfere with Military matters whose primary and secondary concerns are those of the Emperor and High Speaker respectively.

    Laws of Trade & Provincial Interaction
    In establishing the Triumvirate as a ruling body of the Empire it shall be noted that all the provinces previously exclusive to an individual ruler's command are now equally shared amongst the member nations. As such the resources and land anywhere within the lands held by the new Triumvirate government are subject to use and trade by any member of the Triumvirate. So too will academic advancements in technology, like all resources, be shared amongst the member nations of the Triumvirate. To prevent rapid depletion of resources trade shall need to be discussed with all members of the Triumvirate in an inner council meeting before being enacted. So too shall the land and decisions on what to do with it be subject to inner council discussions. No land shall be considered sovereign to a single ruler as all provinces are to be shared equally amongst the nations. As such private meetings will need to be held regarding works of projects or great projects amongst the Triumvirate lands. A two thirds majority vote will be needed to approve any Triumvirate-wide pursuits and should the action receive a two thirds against it shall be agreed to not be pursued for a minimum of 5 years in which time it may again be brought forth for discussion. No nation shall abstain from the vote so as to come to clear and final decisions within the Triumvirate.
    Further, any and all alterations to the Constitution shall require a unanimous decision amongst the member nations.




    The Treaty of Apology
    Participants: Celero and Lyradis
    Treaty of Non-Interference and Trade of Celerii Wood for Lyradisian Craftsmen. Lyradis will not interfere with Celero's wars, and Celero will not interfere in Lyradis'. Should Celero and Lyradis' allies enter a war with each other, both nations will attempt to abstain from the war and will not attack each other directly.




    Treaty of Awakening
    Participants: Sanctuary Empire, Guilder, and Kasumor.
    The treaty involves all signatory nations and the various protectorates of Sanctuary, and its terms are laid out as follows:

    First, Mutual Defense. All signers of this treaty agree to oppose to the Union of the North's incursions to member nations. This will be done with force if required.

    Second, Freedom from Tribute. Guilder and Sanctuary may not leverage tribute from the other's nations.

    Third, Heartwastes Peace. There will be peace without soldiers for ten years, until the spring of 370 unless the Heartwaste takes unprovoked military action toward one of the signatory nations before that time.

    Fourth, Trade Deals. It is understood, though not fully binding, the signatories of the Awoken Treaty shall not give power to enemy nations in any form. In addition, several specific deals are outlined:
    • Kasumor is given the secrets of Plate Armor, and thus renounces their animosity towards Sanctuary.
    • All signatories agree to be more open towards additional trade in the future.


    Fifth, Future Deals. There will be a work in good faith between Ignato and Sanctuary to create an alliance and work together.




    Treaty of Wind and Stone:

    ...I literally had room for 33 posts before the new thread PM's. It took 15 minutes for it to get full...

    Logic, I'll get to you soon, I'm getting an error in my trade imports post, so I'm working that out.

    Got to love that new thread smell. I'm really interested to see how Queen Amalia responds to the two delegations from my region... Still waiting for a response from Logic on that one though.

    Pretty much the only time I can play this game is while I'm at work, and it's now in danger of getting me fired. I can't play anymore, effective immediately.

    Morph, it was a real honor playing in your game; this has been a revolutionary worldbuilding experience for me.

    I mean, it's nothing secret, just asking Wombat if he could change some titles and stuff in the Leadership tables and groupings in the imports list next round to match the new Triumvirate governmental structure.

    @Zap, and now I regret scrolling down to see if there were new messages before posting I really like Raaneka and all your stuff and gameplay. I'm really sorry you can't play anymore and while I understand it I'm still gonna miss you and your stuff as I imagine most everyone will as well. Seriously, that sucks man.

    Ack. It's been an honour man, you really brought something good to this game. See you around, hopefully.

    Oh, man, that really sucks. Don't get fired... but if you do end up getting fired, I expect to see you back here first chance you get.

    That has nearly been me on a couple of occasions. It is sad to see you go Zap.

    So, do we have anyone willing to run the remaining Raaneki Games?

    Sorry dude... That sucks pretty bad.

    Maybe it'll blow over in a bit? I'm hoping for that.

    I've had to go AFK 3 or 4 times because of those sorts of issues. I do always make it back though!

    @DarkDM, from previous thread: DUDE. Do it! More Goldfire for the world! Perhaps with some Tzaltec Fire in return? I'd love me some of that...

    @Aed being awesome. That's such a cool pic! Reminds me that Sah'raa and Frontier both need heraldry though. Sheesh. Time to get to work!

    Like everyone else, I'm very sorry to hear that. Others have better words than I do, though.






    On a different note, the Glazfelli don't actually use Heraldry under normal circumstances, usually opting instead for simpler symbols and actually using names. King Hroar just whipped one up before appearing on the world stage, mostly so he'd actually be taken seriously. Most Glazfelli unfamiliar with foreign customs just assume it's the flag.

    I was talking with Zap about taking them over for their next run in 437 if no one else was interested and he said currently I was the only one who had expressed interest. I think they were already planned to become more of a thing that was hosted around the world each incarnation so more people could certainly pick them up as well and I don't even mind getting cut in line for them either.

    @Jeriah I'd be interested in Rubber and/or Fine Porcelain. Currently the Triumvirate has free trading stacks of timber and ginger as well as a plethora of open trade posts if you were interested in a different resource. (Listed here under current trade agreements)

    @Zap, that totally sucks, really sorry to hear that Hope to see you back or around elsewhere at some point in the future, if that's ever at all possible.

    Sorry to see you leaving Zap, I enjoyed attending the last two Raaneka Games and starting to develop a repertoire between our nations. I'm sad I won't get the chance to play alongside you more more than I have.
