    Feudalism Builder Rules

    Feudalism Builder is Nation Builder with a twist. In this you don't play as one nation, you play as a Count, Baron, Duke or other Landed Noble. This is a rules light, roleplay heavy game where backstabbing and trickery is encouraged. In Feudalism Builder you work towards the ultimate goal of having the most powerful house, be it through military, economic, or political means. Perhaps your House wishes to be King and rule over all of the others with an iron fist. Others still may have the desire to rule from the shadows, directing the king like a puppet. A turn is a period of 5 years. At the end of every game the current ruler of every province dies and a new one takes its place from the line of succession.

    Courtiers are the servants and minor nobility. They are the Knights, not the lords. A courtier is either chosen by, or is accepted into one of the noble houses to serve. While they may be granted a county, or even a territory, a courtier is always subservient to his liege lord until he either proclaims freedom for himself, or is released.
    Courtier Application
    Skills: This stat determines the skills that you bring to your liege such as administration, intrigue, money skills, miner, farmer etc. Think of something and I’ll award you a bonus. You give yourself and your liege a +8 bonus to any roll of your skill type. Military courtiers provide a +5 bonus to combat rolls.

    In Feudalism Builder you do not roll to raise armies, or construct ships. Your role is purely administrative, militaristic and political. The GM will assign random events that occur in the provinces, some might suffer from the same issues and thus may work together to solve them. Others will take advantage of the situation to destabilize your house. Feudalism Builder uses 1d100, to a maximum of three rolls per turn. For example, if House A is suffering from a famine House B can roll 1d100 to steal population away from House A, or annex small plot of now abandoned territory. House A would roll 1d100 to combat the famine, and perhaps another 1d100 to strike a retaliation at House B. House A also wants to create children, and thus will need to use another 1d100. House C offers to educate House A’s children, and rolls 1d100 to determine their outcome.

    Passing Laws and Decrees
    There are three sets of laws. Kingdom Laws, Province Laws, Vassal Laws. Kingdom Laws are set by the King and voted on by all the Landed nobles in the Kingdom. 51% is all it takes to pass. Kingdom laws affect the entire kingdom and override any other laws that conflict.
    Province Laws are set by the Province holder and voted on by his vassals and affect only the province but they do override vassal laws if they conflict. Vassal laws are done by nobles inside of a province and affect only their land.

    Dynasties and Children
    Children and marriage play a critical role in earning more territories for yourself and possibly becoming the province holder or even the Emperor.
    Children are made on a roll of 30+ on a d100, with modifiers for their parents. 31-65 is a male, 66-99 is a female on the dice. A roll of 15 or lower results in the death of the mother. Marriages can happen to anyone at any time and require no roll.
    Marrying into a new dynasty puts you in the line of Succession meaning that if the other people in the family die for whatever reason your child or yourself moves up a notch. If a member of your dynasty succeeds to the throne of a different House their lands are added to yours and they are removed from the game.
    Normal marriages result in taking the man's dynasty but a Matrimonial marriages results in the female's dynasty having the heirs. Your choice.
    Children are given traits assigned by me. Education will also add additional traits. Children’s traits come into play when the child has grown up to rule in a landed title.

    Becoming King
    Being King has its benefits. As King you have the option to impose taxes, forcefully raise levies of other players, and pass laws that supercede all others, and generally do anything you damn well please. The King also has the sole right to allow for war in between provinces. So long as one player is King all players with his blessing receive +5 to d100 rolls to represent realm stability, but random events or poor player management can cause this bonus to be lost, so be ware. Becoming King is easy. Inherit the throne through marriage, take it by force, or politic it away from the current holder. The Throne is always up for grabs, the question is whether or not you’re man enough to take it. The King can do nearly anything to anyone. As Robert Baratheon put it ‘I’m the king, I get what I want!’

    Raising Levies, Researching Technology, Building Counties
    Everyone starts with a Size 2 city and a size 1 fortification in their starting territory. (changed session 3)
    Levies: The number of levies you can raise is determined by the number of territories you have, the number of vassals you control, and the size of the cities and castles under your control. To raise levies simple declare that you are raising your levies and pay two wealth for each raised levy. Levies have an upkeep cost of two wealth per raised levy per turn. To represent the improvement that training and equipment has on levies you can spend 3 additional wealth per levy to give them a +1 bonus per 3 wealth spent to combat rolls. This only applies for the first time you raise these levies. Each time they are raised the price has to be paid again. This is optional, and you may raise levies without paying this price but they will not receive the bonus.
    Technology: Technology progresses slowly, and there’s very little you can do to change that. Spending wealth to invest in funding and patronage will result in minor bonuses. State how much you’re investing and into what field. Things such as a new method of creating mail armor, or flying buttresses are the sort of minor bonuses that exist and will give you some small bonus on your rolls to related actions.
    Building Counties: To build a County you must spend 20 wealth and get above 50+ on a 1d100. Counties are seats of power for your vassals. Without a county you cannot get vassals. You can only claim a county once every two turns.
    City Size: Cities grow in size automatically 1 size every session to a maximum of 5.
    Size 1: Grants 4 wealth per turn
    Size 2: Grants 6 wealth
    Size 3: Grants 12 wealth
    Size 4: Grants 16 wealth
    Size 5: Grants 24 wealth

    War can only be declared with blessing from the King, which requires a Casus Belli, or Just Cause. This can be anything from diplomatic insults to discovered plots and espionage actions to economic sanctions.
    Battle are done by rolling xd10+y. X is the number of Levies present, y is the number of related bonuses. The attacker is the one who rolls first, and he chooses the field of battle unless his opponent has fortifications in the province, which gives him a bonus equal to the size of the fort and allows his opponent to choose to fight there. Terrain can be used to either give you a +2 bonus or your opponents a -2 penalty.
    For example if you had 3 ships with Excellent Seamen (+2) and Good-quality Timber(+4) you would roll 3d10+6 for your total.Your target then does a war roll to resist the attack/counter attack etc. The highest result wins, the defeated army loses 1/4 of its units dedicated to the battle. Both sides regardless of outcome lose any units that get a dice roll of nat 1, on top of the 1/4 the defeated side lost. Levies lost cannot be raised again for a period of 2 turns, or session end. Whichever happens first.

    Trading can be done with any other province or county it requires 1 action.

    The easiest way to find out dirty little secrets of other nobles is through an extensive spy network. Spending ten wealth will give you one spy, with an upkeep cost of 1 wealth per spy. Spies require an action to successfully integrate themselves into your target. A roll of 20 or less results in the spy being captured.

    Spread of Technology
    Technology advances are unique to the province that researches them first. Technology advances can be traded, taken, stolen or given away. After one session they are considered to have become widespread through the Empire unless espionage actions are taken to keep it secret.

    The amount of wealth made per turn is based on the number and size of towns you have, tax levels, and vassals held. More vassals will bring in more income. Plus any other modifiers.

    Some territories are known for their resources. Resources give a large bonus to the holding House.
    Iron, Copper (I, C): Military bonuses. Having iron or copper grants a +4 bonus to war rolls.
    Stone (S): Stone makes both construction of large long lasting buildings and cobbled roads possible, as well as forts and castles. It is a requirement to construct fortifications, large churches, and cobbled roads.
    Timber (T): Timber is used in construction and in warfare alike. Having timber gives a +3 bonus to war rolls, and is required for building ships. Actions involving construction also receive a +5 from the timber resource.
    Gold (G): Gold is wealth. Holding a province with gold gives +8 wealth per turn.
    Food (F): Food is a key resource. This counters famine.

    Delvinshmekt has always been jokingly referred to as the “Wheel of Fortune” Pronvince, a small parcel of land notable only for its fertility and pleasant ocean views. It has long existed only as a prize to someone in high favor with the current king to retire to and administrate at their leisure while sipping ale and looking at the sunset over the ocean. Lord Hiram Akenhauser stands as the latest of these ‘Leisurely Leige Lords’ to preside over the revolving door province, formerly renowned as a cunning sheriff that put an end to a large and powerful bandit clan that he had pursued for nearly seven months. However, this pittance does not sit well with Akenhauser, who dreams of emulating the opulence he’d seen the bandits living in in their greatest stronghold, and now with the death of the former King, the Lord Sheriff feels what little wealth he’s accumulated is in danger if a House that looks badly upon him takes power. In his simple keep, Akenhauser furrows his brow in concentration, action will be required soon, to either make him look desirable to the next king or to seize power himself.

    “I have pursued outlaws and criminals to the very ends of our fair kingdom, but never have I seen a greater collection of cut-throats and monsters than behind the masks of humanity worn in the Royal Court.”

    "Fear runs rampant through my simple hamlet, the people are scared, I can see it in their eyes. The common man is a strange creature, born of sheep and rabbit, his mind a primal and animal thing directed at protecting his warren or fleeing it when the former becomes impossible. I cannot blame them for this fear, the kingdom is in anarchy, divided up as it is between the conniver, the narcissist pagan, the crime lords, and the promiscuous hedonistic insane. In their minds I am not fit to rule, a mere commoner given a petty title for slitting a few highwaymen's throats, it shall take all my cunning to convince them otherwise.

    Here are the rolls for House Stratsimir

    1). The roads in the province of House Stratsimir are muddy and unpassable, and House Palatium and Milano are waging a offensive war against me. I take control of all private ships in my harbor, harvest all the grain and food found outside the city, and poison any food and water left for the invading forces.

    2). I sent a delegation to the pope, calling the Palatiums and Milano godless heathens who threaten the stability of the North due to this infighting. I hope that the pope will recognize my claim to the throne that my enemies have gone to war with me over. By providing me men, arms, wealth, ships, and supplies, I hope that the pope will back me for the crown and have a good, loyal ally to call upon should he ever need it. This is a war for the true faith and it's spread in the north, let it be recognized as such.

    3). I begin defensive measures, such as reinforcing the walls of my city and my fortresses. I will get massive supplies of oil and stone to defend against a siege, as well as stockpile arms and armament. I will also instruct my troops to attack the logistical supply of the enemy army, burning and poisoning their food whenever possible and harassing raiding parties whenever possible.

    I will raise my levies (4, for 8 wealth)
    I will hire mercenary forces (4, for 12 wealth)

    At this point I have 2 wealth left, and all my income will go into supporting my armies.

    House Erbour: You have a daughter with the 'Intelligent' and 'Hideous' traits. Her handmaidens have taken to calling the little girl 'the Gorgon'.

    House Nagendra: With the defeat of the bandits plaguing your roads trade picks up once again. Both forts are upgraded but with war in the north the supplies of stone have been greatly reduced in number, and it isn't likely that there will be any significant shipments until the conflict has ended.

    House Akenhauser: The burgers of Devlinshmekt rally and take heart from the Duke's passionate speech. (+2 to city rolls for one turn.) The hunt is ultimately unsuccessful, and the feast while lavish in most respects, lacks the boar and fowl that make feasts worthy of writing home about. The minor nobles grumble at the failure of their lord as a hunter, but appreciate the gesture.

    I accept your surrender and the surrender of Milano as my vassals. Should I ever call, you shall raise your levies for my aid. I also require an indemnity to be paid by your county for the war, for the sum total of +10 wealth to be paid to me and my county for the ravages your armies have done to my county's countryside, to be split evenly among both of your counties.

    Your counties will also provide free access to my traders and trade routes, as well as roads. I will, of course, offer the same to your counties. May we both grow stronger together.

The efforts to improve your roads are met with failure. Road crews don't want to work during the rainy summer, and the autumn and winter is hard. The following year the workers demand better pay.

    House Erbour: Cardinal Richelieu thanks you for the gifts. The Gorgon has received the traits 'Zealous' and 'Grey Eminence'. Your claim to a neighboring county doesn't take, but several of your people leave your lands for their when the county reverses the claim using some bogus title to annex a small portion of your lands instead. Your men at arms refine their sword technique. +1 combat.

    House Akenhauser: You have a daughter. She has the 'Beautiful' and 'Genius' traits. The wine you sent to your neighbors was of poor quality, likely sold by Cannnithian merchants. They are too courteous to admit that it was shitty wine, and you know you've done damage to relations.

    house Nagendra: The caravan works wonders, no thanks to the roads. It supplies a steady stream of wealth. +1 wealth. You have a son. He has the 'Strong' and 'Handsome' traits. Unfortunately one of your levies takes the better equipment and sells it to a neighboring province. A black market has been started in your territory!

    House Kalliens: The Pirate captain agrees to join your House in exchange for a minor title and lands. The following years harvests are much better, and the additional farmlands puts the refugees to work. Many settle down on their own farms. The merchants thank you for your assistance.

    House Cannith: Your wife has died during a horseback riding accident. The university has collapsed due to poor worksmanship and ill-treatment. You successfully open new markets in Spain. +1 wealth.

    House Erbour: The common people have their fears calmed. Cardinal Richelieu does not approve of your attempts to use him. The Church excommunicates you for your brash act. The people, fearing for their souls, demand that you make peace with the Chruch, lest they rebel and place someone more caring of their eternal souls. As if a curse from God or the Pope your wife dies in childbirth, and your son is covered with scales and weeping sores! He does not survive the night.

    House Nagendra: your son ends up with the 'Average Ruler' trait. He does not manage to secure himself a useful place in the line of succession though. Your spy infiltrates the highest levels of the black market. Its profits are now yours. +2 wealth. County established.

    With one fell swoop of the sword the Throne is claimed by Obediah Stratsimir, of House Stratsimir, the third of his name. While others might disagree, none have stepped up to claim the Throne themselves, and thus it passes to the only one with any interest in it.

    House Kalliens supports our bid for the kingship, but will not provide any arms or support if anyone else decides to go to war against us. They will also not support any other house should they declare their claim to the throne.

    House Stratsimir does the following...

    1.) build another fortress using one of the stone resources I have (preferably in the new county, Rodeia).

    2.) Build a new county on the seaside, near where the other new county was built.

    3.) I will also construct cobbled roads using my other stone resource, to help facilitate trade in my counties.

    Current wealth after county is 14, 2 stone resource left.

    Name: Alek Westalian
    Skills: Warfare
    Fluff: Alek Westalian is a knight of little renown as he comes from a family of small fortune and minor title. What he lacks in fame and fortune he makes up for in pure martial skill, bravery and more than a little bit of luck. Although his grasp of planning and executing battles is average at best he firmly believes that his place is always at the front and prefers to rally the men and lead the charge over simply giving the order. Despite his preference to fighting over the mundane art of statecraft Alek has been prodded by his ailing father to begin making more of an effort on that part. As such he has assumed control over most of his father's power (limited as it may be) and has been sent out to sell his families services to one of the more powerful nobles.

    King Obediah, the third of his line, has been crowned king. I will call an assembly of the lords of the land and see what we shall name this new country. Under the Banner of House Stratsimir, the nations of Europe will know our name and our lineage. We will rule fairly, and justly, with the support of the nobles and the landed classes. We will prosper and we will grow. Our rule shall be based on fairness, justness, and the rule of law.

    There will be a council dedicated to hearing the Nobles and their concerns. There will be a cabinet of the most trusted nobles and advisors that will help rule this great nation.

    All this would not have been possible without the support of House Palatium, House Milano, House Cannith , House Nagendra, and House Kalliens. Without your support, we would not be here, now, on the cusp of great things and new opportunities.

    Currently, to support House Cannith, we will help in the building of the university. A great place of learning where the lords and all of their Children will grow to be smart, strong, intelligent rulers, guiding this nation to greatness.

    House Kalliens: Your scholars get lost of the way there and are eaten by wolves. you educate Dalos, and thank God some of it stuck. He has gained the Average ruler trait. Unfortunately your wife took fever and died.

    House Stratsimir: You are unable to construct your fortress. There are simply too few people in Rodeia to construct it. You do manage to buy out the new county on the seaside, giving you complete control over the Bay of Veneto. The roads are plagued by brigands, mercenaries out of work who have taken to raiding caravans. It pays more.

    House Cannith: Nothing succeeds. God does not love you, says your Court Chaplain. Perhaps you should buy an Indulgence?

    House Erbour: The Pope lifts your excommunication, but still looks dis-favorably on you for so brazenly thinking you could buy the church so openly. You have a son, he has the 'Genius' and 'Plain' traits.

    House Nagendra: You construct a magnificent fortress. you find some gems worth a small portion of wealth, and a silver mine that quickly runs dry. +2 wealth.

    1. I shall attempt to purchase stone and timber, if necessary trading directly with exotic spice and sugar!

    2. I shall try for a second son!

    3. I will practice a supplementary technique in the absence of the presence of good stone and abundant timber (though I do, in fact, have some): Brickmaking. Solid brick well laid and stacked thick can serve where stone cannot be had.

    Issues for the king: The Kingdom of Calabria sends it regards. The Calabrian King demands recompense for the damages caused by your vassal, House Sodomiya. Either a tribute of gold to pay for the damages, or the Duchess's head.

    House Statsimir: The castle is constructed. You acquire stone from your vassals, and they thank for you paying for it as opposed to demanding it. The brigands are scattered, moving to other lands that are easier.

    House Kalliens: You have a son. He has the 'Intelligent' and 'Weak' traits. You claim a county and forge relations with another minor lord.

    House Cannith: You have a son. He has the 'Average' and 'Strong' traits. Your economy collapses as yet another university plan falls through. Markets across the nation close and unemployment skyrockets in the province as people lose faith in the economy, then in the leaders themselves. Rebellion ferments, as people look to themselves to find a new leader! -5 wealth.

    House Erbour: you purchase stone and timber at a rate of 3 wealth each/turn. You get a daughter, though she seems more interested in manly pursuits than womanly ones. 'Brave' 'Intelligent'. You create the process of brickmaking, though it is inferior to stone, and is looked on with skepticism.

    House Nagendra: Your create the kingdom's first university, and it is marvelous. A wonder of engineering, even before its lofty position. +8 education. Your spy integrates himself and awaits further orders.
