Side Creation
When creating your side, you should decide the following information:
● Royal or not
○ Royal sides sometimes pop Noble Command units, which are superior to standard
○ Must purchase Throne Room at level 1 in their Capital

● Favored Terrain
Water, Volcano, and Impassable Mountains are invalid choices
● Special Benefit (choose only one of the following)
○ All units are Terrain Capable in your Favored Terrain
○ Increased chance for Warlords/Casters to pop with a particular special
○ +2 points to customize every unit
Units
Every side can produce a number of units. You choose the fluff and build at the beginning of the game and cannot change them afterwards. You can however pop units from another side if you capture one of their cities.
A list of units your cities can pop follow. Base stats are in the form of:
Hits/Combat/Defense/Move
After the unit’s base stats are the specials of the unit, followed by its customization points and the upkeep per turn. This is the amount their upkeep increase with each level beyond 1st.
During creation every unit gets a number of points you can use to customize your units. You can up the health stat by 1.5 for every point spent. The move, combat and defense stats can be increased by 1 for every point spent. For some units you can spend the points on specials, this is noted in the unit description.
A unit with more than 15 hits acts has though they received the heavy special but does not receive the bonuses.
Unit Templates
Infantry
Stabber (5/3/1/5) +4 (30)
Stabbers are slightly faster than pikers and are focused on attack over defense.
Piker (7/2/3/5/garrison) +4 (20)
Pikers are popped as garrison units, meaning that they start with no move; they can be upgraded to field units for 50 schmuckers. This raises their upkeep to 30.
Archer (5/5/0/5/garrison, ranged) +4 (30)
Archers are popped as garrison units but can be upgraded for 50 schmuckers, raising their upkeep to 40. Their prime advantage is being able to hit stacks without engaging them and being able to target flyers or other archers.
Scout (3/0/0/20/ scout) +4 (30)
Scouts have a very high move compared to your other infantry, besides having high move they also have the “scout” special which give them very limited thinkamancy. They may buy Flight for 4 points or terrain capability for 2.
Knight (10/3/3/5/rider) +14 (90+10 per level above 1)
Knight-class infantry is your strongest infantry and is not cheap, but they can change the outcome of a battle. They may buy a single Simple special, but it costs an extra point.
Special Units
Special units are divided into two classes, Knight (humanoid) and Beast (animal). Knights cannot be Mounts and Beasts cannot be Riders.
Special A/B (8/2/2/6) +12 (60+10 per level above 1)
You get two of these weaker special units.
Special C (12/3/3/4) +18 (120+20 per level above 1)
The stronger variant of the A/B-class special, they might not be cheap, but they are well worth it.
Special D (16/4/4/3/heavy) +26 (300+50 per level above 1)
The absolute juggernaut, the D-special gets a whopping 26 points to spend on specials and upgrades. These units cost the most schmuckers in the game, but they are also the most destructive units.
Naval Units
Naval units have an extra stat after move, cargo. A unit can hold an amount of light units equal to its cargo and heavy units equal to half of its cargo. Ships can only take one special: ranged.
Sloop (6/2/2/4/8/water capable) +5 (60)
The weakest tier of ships, Sloop class naval units are good for little more than carrying units. Also pops two Mariners when popped.
Galley (8/3/3/5/16/water capable) +10 (90)
The Galley class naval vessel is moderately powerful ship which can be used effectively in naval combat. Also pops 4 Mariners when popped.
Galleon (10/5/5/5/30/water capable) +20 (130)
The Galleon class Ships are very powerful, doubling as battleships and huge troop carriers. Also Pops 8 Mariners when popped.
Mariner (1/0/0/5/water capable) (5* See Text)
Mariners are only popped with a ship like the Diggers are popped with Siege Towers. They while on a ship do not cost any Upkeep and take up none of the Cargo. When they step off of a ship is when the start costing upkeep (In combat being knocked off doesn’t count. Unless the Unit willingly (such has being ordered to by the Ruler or another command Unit) leaves the boat you don’t pay upkeep). If a boat doesn’t have enough Mariners it takes a penalty of -1 to combat, defense and to move for each mariner it’s missing. If a boat has no mariners then it can’t do anything (Turnamancy is the only exception to this rule).
Unique Units
Siege Tower (40/0/0/0/8/heavy) +10 (20)
Siege Towers pops 8 units called Diggers and a piece of Equipment called a Siege Tower that acts completely like a screen. Its fifth Stat is the number of light units it can carry. They only have move when someone else is moving them and even then they move only at half the units move (rounded down). You can hold heavies with the exchange rate of 1 heavy instead of two Lights. You must pay the Diggers upkeep has well has the Siege towers upkeep. The siege Tower can’t Level.
Saps (3/1/0/5/Digging) (20)
Courtier (6/0/0/5) (50+25 per level above 1)
Courtiers are special units who like warlords and casters can issue build orders and manage cities. A city with a courtier governing it multiplies its schmucker production by (courtier level+10)/10. (Example, a 1st level city with a 1st level courtier will produce 1100$) Courtier’s gain
1 experience point per turn spent managing a city per level of the city.
Warlord (10/4+1d4/4+1d4/5/leadership, rider) (150+50 per level above 1)
Warlords are a must for every side because they are the only units able to perform your ruler’s tasks. Warlords can perform courtier tasks but will not gain experience from them. A warlord has a 5% chance of being popped with a Simple Special or Dance fighting.
There is also a 1 in 1+2x chance that it will spawn as a caster (x is the number of casters already on your side).
Caster (6/3/3/5/caster) (250+50 per level above 1)
Casters perform the functions of a warlord, but do not give their leadership bonus to other units
(Unless they are made within their school (dirtamancer with golems, croakamancer with undead Etc.). Besides this they can also cast spells from their school. There will be more on casters in the magic chapter.

Heir (Designate) (10/4+1d4/4+1d4/5/leadership, rider) (500+50/level)
This rank can either be popped or given to an existing warlord. An heir popped on a royal side will become an heir. A non-royal warlord or heir popped on a non-royal side will become an heir designate. If popped this unit has a 20% chance to get the a Special as
Warlords do. Promoting a unit increases its upkeep by 400 schmuckers, and does not change stats. Stats do not change when such a unit becomes Ruler.
Ruler: (10/8/8/5/rider, leadership) (0+0/level)
A Ruler holds absolute authority over a side. Through natural thinkamancy they know the status of every unit on their side, and can issue orders to units in the same hex. The Ruler sets all cities’ production, and has final authority to End Turn. They also have the ability to disband their own units at any time, except when a unit is captured by the enemy.
Specials
There are 3 kinds of specials, simple, complex and D-class.
Knights and all Special Units may buy Simple specials, only Special Units may buy Complex specials, and D-Class specials are reserved for D-units. You may only take a special once unless it says otherwise.
Simple
Flight (2) Allows the unit to pass through terrain without getting movement penalties. These units cannot be attacked by melee infantry without flight or ranged unless they engage them in melee.
Ranged (2) Allows the unit to make ranged attacks making them able to hit units that normal troops are not able to hit (such as flying units, units on walls, Etc.). Units with this special have enough ammunition to “Shoot” a number of times equal to their combat stat. Ammunition is recharged at the beginning of you turn for your units.
Toxin (2) Whenever this unit deals damage to a stack that stack takes damage equal to ½ of the units combat.
Siege (2) Allows the unit to attack walls.
Healer (2) Once per day, the unit can restore 1 hit/level to another unit
Frightening (3) Enemy units in the engaged stack lose leadership bonuses equal to the highest level frightening unit in the engaging stack.
Jinn Stealth (3) If the unit ends turn with full move, it becomes veiled until it attacks or leaves the hex.
Scout (2) Scouts have a Thinkamancy range of 6 hexes within which they can communicate with Command units. May "relay" information through other Scouts within their range, but these reports are less detailed than reporting directly to a Command Unit. Direct Report: Scouted X terrain, at hex ___ I spotted 3 Haffaton stacks, 1 with leadership. At hex ___ I spotted a level 1 Haffaton city. At hex ____ spotted 1 stack of an unknown side.Relayed Report: Scouted X terrain, spotted 2 different sides, and one city at hex ____.
Tunnel Capable (2) A 50% bonus to combat and Defense while in Tunnels.


Complex
2 Points

Rider Allows the unit to ride units with the mount special without taking a 4 penalty to combat.
(Terrain) Capability A unit with terrain capability does not receive penalties from its chosen terrain. It also gives the unit a 50% bonus in combat while attacking or defense while defending. Volcanos count has Mountains for this Special.
Builder Reduces city and improvement build/upgrade cost by 2% per level, this stack up to 20% at most. Reduces improvement build time by 5%/level, stacks to 50% max. (Purchasable only once)

(Purchasable only once)
Speed Boost The unit gains +6 to Move. This special can be purchased multiple times.
Track: Natural Findamancy that allows the Unit to follow Ground Units
Extended Scout: The range of your Scout ability is extended by 6. This special may be taken multiple Times.
Farming: Allows a unit to produce a rebate like a Farm does. The rebate is equal to the units upkeep times the units level. It also allows units to gain shmuckers. The amount is equal to the number of turns spent farming one hex times the units upkeep minus 10% of the amount of shmuckers produced for every 10 turns (rounded down) spent farming that hex. A unit may Farm in Plains, Tundra and Desert hexes. The number turns spent farming a hex remains on the hex. The number of turns go down two turns for every one turn that the hex is not farmed. Multiple units may farm the same hex and each unit produces 1 turn and they gain the benefits has from all the turns that would be produced.
Improved Foraging: When this unit Forages the unit finds Forage easier and may supply for the entire upkeep instead of only part.
3 Points
Fabrication Unit can create Nice Things. Details are covered here
Digging: Digging units can make their own tunnels. This allows them to move around terrain without being attacked. A Digging unit cannot attack a unit unless that unit is underground has well. While stationary, these units are almost undetectable. They can un-dig at will and surprise attack units. A Digging unit takes no hex penalties but cannot move through water hexes. While Digging a unit may mine Mountains, Hills, High mountains, Forested Mountains and Volcanoes. The longer a unit spends mining one hex the more it receives Shmuckers in the form of Gems. The number and value shall be determined by the titans. Units with this special may dig into walls creating a breach for other units. The longer they dig though the more they damage the terrain until they mine out all the gems. The terrain will eventually heal itself.

Fabrication
Units with this special can use Loose Materials to create Nice Things for your units. What are Nice Things you ask? Below are some examples. Nice Things cost 1 Loose Material to create, and cities stock 1 unit of Loose Materials per city level in the Larder and Armory, which is replenished each turn. If you lack the Loose Materials for an item, it can be fabricated over multiple turns. Nice Things can be made for Special Units, but cost twice as much for A/B, thrice as much for C, and four times as much for D, but the bonus is equally multiplied.
Units can fabricate in the Field, but Loose Materials do not pop naturally. Croaked units may provide Larder Materials, and certain casters such as a Hat Magician may produce Loose Materials using Juice. In rare instances, units may be able to scavenge or forage for Loose Materials.
1 LOOSE MATERIAL
Sweet Weapons: These weapons are pretty groovy. They look awesome and they’re extra sharp. Units wielding them gain a bonus to Combat, +1 (Infantry), +2 (Warlord). Sweet Bows are also possible.
Awesome Armor: Much like weapons, this armor is extra cool and well made. Units wearing them receive +1(+2 for warlord) to their defense.
Kicking Kicks; this footwear is just fabulous. Lightweight and comfy, GROUND units of the infantry or warlord class may wear them. These items involve only the choicest materials and cost twice as much to make, but they grant +2 moves to the lucky fellow or lady wearing them.
Delicious Sandwich: This sandwich is thick and enormous, stuffed with everything that does a body good. Any infantry unit or warlord eating this monster meal will be fortified for ONE turn, gaining a +4(+6) bonus to their health. This is not stackable; you may not eat five sandwiches to turn into the Juggernaut. There is good news for you tactical snackers, though – A Delicious Sandwich can be wrapped and saved for later, but it is no longer very tasty after FIVE turns, and goes away then. A Scrumptious Feast may also be provided for larger units with the same scaling mechanic as armor and weapons, but Feasts are too big to be carried away and must be eaten on the spot, for they disappear next turn.

2 LOOSE MATERIALS
Scouting Veil: Gives the unit a bonus to hiding from enemy units. (The Higher the level of the creator the better the Veil)
Cities
Cities are the core of your empire. In the city you create schmuckers to pay for upgrades and unit upkeep. The city is also where your units pop. Cities level from 1 to 5, each upgrade costing schmuckers and resulting in a stronger, more productive city.
All of a side’s cities are largely similar. This is because cities pop based on a uniform template that is unique to the side. When a city pops or is upgraded, command units are able to adjust a city to deviate from the template by 10% (to a minimum of 1 Flavor Point). Dirtamancers are able to deviate by 10% per level, and a Dirt/Thinkamancer link can completely redesign the city.
The Capital can be completely different from the side’s template, allowing for unique customization. Also, a capital site allows the city to sacrifice some zones in order to gain an advantage in other areas. Any city could for example chose to not have a tunnel zone, but a
Capital can actually apply the points from the tunnel zone to another area of the city.
The city stats provided below include the cost to build, schmuckers they produce each turn, and what they pop and how quickly. The stats also include Structural information, in the form of Hits/Combat/Stacks.
Hits: The amount of damage a zone can take before being destroyed. A zone with no hits does not exist. Purchased at a rate of 1.5/SP
Combat: The amount of damage the zone can deal to invading units (only obtained through the Trapped [Zone] Flavor).
Stacks: The maximum number of allied stacks that can defend the zone. Zones without this stat have no limit to their capacity. Purchased at a rate of 1 Stack/SP
Spell Boost: This is a special that applies only to the Tower. Casters gain a +1 bonus for every
50 hits the Tower has. (This can also be increased with the Spell Boost+ Flavor). When a caster is casting from a tower the amount of juice they spent is increased to Juice * ((spell boost + ten) divide by 10).
At each city level, there is also listed a certain number of Structural Points and Flavor Points, that can be spent in the following ways.
Structural Points: Are used to enhance the defensive stats of the city. You may purchase additional hits at a rate of 1.5 hits/point, and stacks at a rate of 1 stack/point.
Flavor Points: Represent the uniqueness of your side’s cities. You can purchase extra Structural
Points at a rate of 10 SP/point, or purchase any of the “Flavors” listed below.
● Torture Chamber: Bonus to turning Captives/2 points (requires Dungeon)
● Storeroom: +1 (max +2) Loose Materials each turn/2 points
● Wharf: The city gains a Wharf. 2 points
● [Resource Point]: Pops resource points with the city. These points may be reallocated in each city, as the surrounding terrain may only allow for certain resource points. The normal limit of 3 upgrades/city levels still stands. 2 Points each
● Trapped [Zone]: The selected zone gains a Combat score of 10/point
A Trapped Zone triggers when non-allied units enter that zone. The trap’s damage bypasses Defense, dealing damage directly to Hits. A trap will fire a number of times per day equal to the number of Flavor Points spent to build it, dealing it’s full Combat in damage each time. This attack is split randomly between enemy units in the zone, similar to Air Defenses (10 damage to 1 target, or 2 damage to 5 targets for example)
● Library: Your Chief Warlord’s Leadership score increases by 1.4 points. (2 points)
● Fortified [Zone]: The selected zone grants allied units +1(max +3) Defense & Combat/2
Points
● Improved [Unit]: [Units] popped here gain minor bonus to a chosen stat, or the chance of popping with a chosen Simple special. 4 points (Cost and exact benefits determined by Titans)
● Improved [Stat]: All units popped here have a +1 bonus to [stat]. 4 points
● [Unit] Production: [Units] pop here as if the city were one level higher. 4 points
● Spell Boost+: Increases the Tower’s Spell Boost by 1/2 points
Capital Only
Flavors:
● Throne Room (Royal sides only): The side can pop Royal/Noble units which are slightly better than average. The chance to pop such a unit is random. A Throne room must be purchased as part of a Level 1 Capital, and is a requirement for the side to be Royal. (4 points)
● Portal: (Level 3+) create a portal to the Magic Kingdom. (2 points)

Walls can only be attacked by units with siege, unless the wall has no full stacks (A full Stack is 8 Units) on it in which case infantry can scale and take the wall. Ranged units can attack units stationed on the walls. Non-flyers cannot enter walled hexes.
Cities have to be built at least ten hexes from another city.
Those with Juice may place their juice on the tower of a city. When an enemy unit enters the cities Air space the stored juice is fired on the enemy has Shockamancy (the Juice is immediately turned into shockamancy by the way) the damage is spread out evenly amongst all enemies. The One exception to this rule is when there is an allied caster in the city. The Caster gets to decide whether the Air defense is fired and whom it is fired upon.
Upgrades
A command unit can build upgrades in hexes. Upgrades can make you money; provide defense or line of sight. Only one upgrade can be built in a hex. With the exception of Roads, Canals and Lookout Towers, Upgrades have to be built within a city’s zone of control. If an enemy city zone of control later expands to include the Lookout Tower, or enemy units invade it, it becomes theirs.
Resource Points (Mine, Lumber Mill, and Farm) can be purchased with Flavor Points and pop instantly when the city is built or upgrades or they can be constructed “manually” by command units. Both methods count against the cap of 3 upgrades/city level.
Lookout Tower gives your side line of sight over the hex and all surrounding hexes. +1 Sight on Hill, +3 on Mountains.(1 Turn)
Fortress Turns the hex into a walled fortress (stats of a level 2 city); a manned fortress also works as a lookout tower. (3 Turns)
Road Builds a road in the hex (see terrain for effects). (Can be built on other improvements)(1Turn)
Canal Acts as a river (see terrain for effects). (Can be built on other improvements)(2 Turns)
Mine Can be built on a mountain or volcano hex. Building a mine causes the hex to gain a tunnel zone. A mine produces 600$/turn and also has a 3% chance of striking a gem node every turn which doubles the mine output for 5 turns, a mine on a volcano striking the mother lode will have it last 10 turns(4 Turns)
Lumber mill can be built on a forest hex, produces 600$/turn. It provides a cumulative 1% cost reduction to upgrades for the city it is associated with. (4 Turns)
Farm A farm can be built on any non-forest, Swamp, mountain or hills hex. It produces 600$/turn and reduces your upkeep cost by 75$ per turn per farm. This is not an income increase, so if your upkeep costs are less than the “rebate”, you don’t get the extra as schmuckers. (4 Turns)
Wharf Can only be built on a tile next to water or swamp. This allows the city to construct water units. Produces 300$/turn. A Wharf can ONLY be built by purchasing it as a Flavor.
Taking a Turn
The Following occur in stated order:
1. Production
2. Special Actions
3. Move & Attack
4. Decide Production for next turn
Production: At the start of a Side’s turn, the following occurs, in order.
● Income “produced” the previous turn is added to the treasury
● Units “produced” the previous turn pop
● Upkeep for all units that have been popped is paid
(It is important to note that units and schmuckers do not pop at the end of turn, but rather are delayed until the start of the next.)

Special Actions: You can do a thing called training but you have to stay in one hex the whole turn and you’ll receive experience or something of equal worth, like an adept special.
You also can forage to lessen your upkeep a considerable amount.

Move/Combat: You can move a specific amount of hexes each turn. The number of Hexes you can move per turn is equal to your movement stat minus the movement cost for each hex you enter. An Example is a Stabber moves into a mountain hex taking up 3 of the stabbers 5 move. In combat your units can form stacks that provide a bonus according to the size of your stack. The Bonus Maxes at +8 to combat and defense when your stack reaches 8 units and a minimum of a +4 when your stack reaches 4 units. You may have more than 8 units per stack. The unit with the highest leadership score provides one tenth of their leadership to all allied units in the hex. If a captured unit is able to leave the hex, its shackles vanish and it is freed. Commanders can order their stack to screen them or a particular unit. Attacks aimed at the designated unit fall randomly on these units, and the commander can only be harmed when they are all croaked.
Movement & Scouting
All Movement “rounds down”, meaning a unit must have the full Move required to enter a hex. So if for example a unit with 2 Move left attempts to enter a Mountain hex, they fail. Regardless of terrain type, units treat their own city hexes as having a Move cost of 1. This benefit extends to allied units.

Barbarians, Wild animals, and Natural Allies all act at dawn, and lose their Move when this “communal turn” ends, with 2 exceptions:
● If a wild unit is later tamed, they regain any Move they had remaining
● Newly acquired Natural Ally tribes have their full Move refreshed

Scouting is an important part of maintaining your side:
● Scouts reveal the hex they are in, as well as all adjacent hexes to a certain degree.
○ They always see the terrain type, structures, or other upgrades.
○ In "open" terrain: spot units in adjacent hexes, but can only count number of stacks and note the presence or absence of leadership in said stacks.
○ In "obscured" terrain: spot the presence of units, without the ability to count them.
○ If in the same hex, they can count exact troop numbers.
○ Count troop numbers from an adjacent hex if the terrain is open but doing so reveals their presence.
Terrain
Every kind of terrain gives certain bonuses and penalties. If a unit has terrain capability you will not get any of the penalties, but will still receive the bonus.
● Plains
○ No movement penalty
○ Scouts have line of sight in adjacent hexes
● Light Forest

Feral/Wild units:
These units appear at the beginning of each day and then take there turns has they come.
Terminology:
Royal: A unit that is Royal receives a Bonus to one or multiple of the following: Hits, Combat, Defense, Move and possibly a Simple Special.
Noble: A Noble Unit receives a Bonus to one or multiple of the Following: Hits, Combat, Defense and Move.
Command Unit: Warlords, Courtiers, and Casters. Special Units that merely have the Leadership special are not considered Commanders, because while they are good in a battle, they lack the ability for large-scale strategy, and they cannot supervise upgrades.(But Leadership special Special units can still direct battles)
Intelligent Units: Units capable of sentient thought. Includes Infantry, Natural Allies, and Knight-class Specials, as well as all Command Units. Excludes all Beast-class units, and Golems of any type.
Golem: Units with this Special descriptor don’t gain levels. They can’t be healed by a Healomancer or units with the Healer special. They can only be healed by a caster of the type that crafted them.
Fire: There are three types of Fire: Controlled, Uncontrolled and Inferno. Controlled Fires are Torches and Camp Fires. Uncontrolled fires starts to damage units nearby but may be put out by ordinary units. Inferno class Fire deals heavy damage to all nearby units (Except those in the Air Zone) and when it finally burns out the Hex type is changed to Barren.
CASTERS
Casters have juice equal to 30 times their level. The casters juice maxes at 5th level. Upon attaining 6th level and every level there after they gain a 5% decrease to spell juice costs. The minimum cost of a spell is 1 juice. Casters gain 10% of all the juice they use. They do not gain juice from using the juice stored in the tower has Air Defense. When in the Magic Kingdom they gain 15% of the juice they use. Casters pop with a 10% chance of knowing spells from another class of Magic. For example a findamancer could know Moneymancy at 1st level. There is a 1% chance that a caster will pop with the ability to cast spells of all the classes of magic and 19% Chance that the caster has skill in at least one other discipline when popped. A unit with talent in another Class of magic (such has a thinkamancer having skill in Dirtamancy when popped) is considered a novice in that particular school of Magic. Has a caster gains experience (After becoming an Adept in their own specialized school of Magic) there is the chance that they will become an Adept class in a school of magic other than there specialized school which gives them better control in that particular school of Magic.
Casters can make magic items. All casters can make scrolls. Scrolls can only be used by casters. Scrolls are one spell and one spell only. In order to scribe a scroll a caster must spend twice the juice it costs to create the spell normally. Instead of scrolls some spells can be made into an “edible” spell format. Edible Spells can be used by any unit but must have an affect only on the one unit. For example a Luckamancer could create a luck boosting spell in the form of cereal. Spells like Locate City or Transfer Funds can’t be turned into an edible spell. Only Dollamancers and Changemancers can make magic equipment on their own. All other classes of Magic must be in a bi- or tri- caster link.
All Classes of magic have one spell in common, Hoboken; this spell allows a caster to turn their juice into damage. For example, a Thinkamancer fires 30 Juice at an A Class unit and the Knight riding it. The Thinkamancer splits the spell evenly between the two units. The Spell bypasses all defense except magic defense (like a Dollamancy made shield bonus) and natural dodge (the Random roll) which means that the A Class unit with no magic defense gets a 5 croaks from the damage and the warlord that gets a 10 avoids most of the damage but still takes five hits.

I am definitely interested in this game!

Spoiler: show
Ruler: Cilarnen Volpiril
Side Name: Armethalieh
Side Bonus: Terrain Capable (Hills)

Capital City: Armethalieh
City Flavor: Armethalieh is known by its population as the City of Bells, featuring a Tower with a bell upon it, and bells that ring in synchronicity with the Tower's Bell upon each building. The Bell encourages the defensive units to fight for the defense of Armethalieh. (20 Structure Points: 2 FlPts; Tower 30/-/-: 20 StPts; Fortified Tower: 2 FLPts.)

Dumbbell (Stabber) 5/6/2/5; These striking units are designed to be the base unit of the Armethaliehan army. They are well muscled and wield a large sword with an extra-long handle.

Clapper (Piker) 10/2/5/5/garrison; These garrison units are the infantry that provide the filler for the Armethaliehan army. They are well-armored and tough, wielding a long spear and heavy shield.

Suzu (Archer) 5/7/2/5/garrison, ranged; These are designed to be the base unit of the Armethaliehan garrison and carry heavy long bows to strike at Armethalieh's enemies. When upgraded to field units, they make an effective support for the Dumbbells.

Chime (Scout) 3/0/0/24/scout; A simple running unit that carries neither armor nor weapons.

Carillon (Knight) 13/10/5/5/rider, ranged; The Carillon is a heavier version of the Suzu, designed to ride the Cow Bells into battle. Their ultra-heavy long bows can be wielded for powerful strikes at a distance. They carry a thin reed-blade for use in melee combat.

Cow Bell (Special A) 14/2/2/18/Flying, Mount, Speed Boostx2 (already in stats); A winged beast with a body shaped like a simple cow bell and a clapper for a tail. Their small horns aren't very effective in battle, but they are able to swiftly carry the Carillons or Blue Bells across the hexes to where they are best utilized.

Watch Dog (Special B) 13/8/5/6/Pack Mind, Heavy (already in stats); A heavy stone mastiff whose running steps are in the rhythm of a clock. They are designed to act as a unit in battle as a support for the primary army. Oddly enough, the bark of the Watch Dogs is only audible to other Watch Dogs.

Blue Bell (Special C) 12/3/7/4/Simplemancy (Dirtamancy), Leadership, Rider, Healer; These human-type special units can act as leaders in cities, using their juice to constantly help enhance the cities and protect those in them.

Bar Bell (Special D) 30/10/10/10/Digging, Speed Boost, Heavy (already in stats); A large burrowing serpent formed of links of long bar-chimes. It burrows through the ground to surprise its foes and weaken the walls of an enemy city. Its metallic skin makes it difficult for foes to take it down as it does its Duty.

I personally use a Program Called Gimp Image Manipulation simply because I can Layer it.

Wow....congrats Grand, you've only been around a month and you've already solved our biggest Erfgame problem....I can't believe none of the Titans have thought to use Gimp before *facepalm*
We all use Hexographer, which though great for making the map, is very time consuming to use in actual game-play. I've never actually used Gimp but layering is a possible solution to the most common problems we face in Hexographer.

It's an image manipulation program that allows you to layer things (having different images overlap but maintain their integrity) It's what Marbit always used for his forum Roleplay games, if you ever saw any of those. So if it works as well as I'm thinking, we could make our maps with Hexographer, then deal with scouting, army movement, cities, and everything else of the real gameplay by using layers in Gimp.

Because when you scribble, you alter the image. Gimp would allow us to preserve the base map image, unaltered, and simply move around other images on top of it. It's literally the digital version of playing on a game table with miniatures. It would be a lot less time consuming.

Yep. It's much easier to use fog of war. The only problem is that most people's computers don't open the file correctly because it's unusual. So you still have to copy and paste the image in paint for most people to see it.

Believe me, you REALLY don't want more than 4 players lol. So given the existing demand, and the fact that I run 1 game and play in another as is, I shall abstain and give others the chance :)

... That's what I did with mine... I just used Photoshop instead of Gimp... That was how I got around huge maps, I just had a bunch of smaller ones made and then spliced them together <_<;;;

Oh sorry if I wasn't clear, my plate is already full enough with being in one game and running a second myself. I will probably have to pass on this.
