There are plenty of reasons to go to war with each other. Like the fact that you don't have nearly enough land and could have so many more shmuckers if you just conquered that one extra city....

LTD did say he didn't want us holding up in our sides, thus the decreased returns on projects as he pointed out, so I imagine he'll come up with something if we all try and play too nice. I doubt we'll need his prompting though. Something is bound to happen. Two sides will be fighting over a city and other sides will take the chance to strike at weakened opponents then they'll get attacked by someone and so on.

speaking from experience in games like these (one based on Asimov's Foundation series, many based on Star Wars and Star Trek and hell even Star Gate) eventually the players settle into periods of non-violence and the GM has to do something to get them killing each other again lol

because when I have my desired cities I can pretty much settle in and build defences while offering myself out as a merc to you guys in your own wars. This earns me Shmuckers and allows me greater forces then my cities alone could support. This will dry up sometime but while it goes on I could be untouchable.

Yeah, the defense bonus from a city is excessive. Like I said, 9 units defending a level 3 is way stronger than 10 doing so. Heck, likely stronger than about 14 or so depending on the exact units in question.

My poor Reborn :(. They died well at least.

I think ranged units are way powerful defending a city.

We definately need some siege now.

Ranged units in general prompt fairly serious losses, which is why they are nearly twice as expensive as their melee counterparts.

Some More Questions

Postby LTDave » Sat Mar 24, 2012 3:54 am

-Can I get stats for my new types of units?

Yep. Make 'em up yourself, and put 'em in your orders.

-May I build Siege?

Yep. See an earlier post for a suggestion how.

-Can units move unaccompanied by a warlord between friendly cities?

Nope.

Another question, what order are our turns processed in?

Say I have a city, and I want to pop 2 extra units in it, however, Stoneheart decides they want to attack it. Do I get my units popped before they attack? or do I only get them if I survive? My logic says the former, but that really limits the value of any intelligence we receive (as what we know might be lacking *city level* of new troops).

I probably already answered my own question.

Given that freshly popped units can move out right away, I'd imagine they'd be able to defend a city. I think the bigger question is do reinforcements arrive in time? For example, Stoneheart wants to attack one of your cities, and you're also moving troops to the city, do your troops get there in time to defend the city? Can they get there in time to benefit from the city's defenses? Or will they arrive suddenly having to attempt to recapture a city? Could be a die roll. d6 with 1-2 being you get there late, 3-4 being you get there in time to defend, but can't benefit from city bonuses, and 5-6 you get there in time to benefit from city bonuses. Or maybe just 1 and 6 are special with 2-5 being a strait up fight.
