Greetings, new leader. You and many others are standing at the brink of civilization. Your people have lifted themselves from simple farmers to a simple, yet thriving civilization. Yet you are surrounded by barbaric tribes and other civilizations preying on your fertile soil. Will you lead your people to greatness?>Name of Country>Government>Religion/gods>Peoples/race (not too alien, has to be humanoid)>Location>Fluff>Other>Colour (Pick one that has yet to be picked)Rules:You can roll 4d10s every turn. Each d10 can be used to do an action. Aditionally, d10's can be combined to make an action more succesfull, at the cost of another action. Example:1: Research irrigation2: Build a Port in [Capital City]3+4: Recruit infantryDiplomatical interaction with other players/AI countries does not require rolling. Things such as establishing trade routes doStats:Every civ has 5 stats: Wealth, Population, Technology, Magic and TroopsWealth: The combined worth of your resources. Used to fund warfare, research, construction and other things. For example: 500 (Silver, Emeralds, Exotic Beasts) Population: The combined population of your civilization. Once it hits zero, your have lost and your country is removed from the game.Technology: All things you have resourced. Influences what you can do. Example: Irrigation, Iron Working, CrossbowsMagic: All Magic you possess. Example: Carthography Magic, Blessed by [DIETY]Troops: All your units, and their combined base value. base value is used to determine the outcome of fights. Example: 3 Barbarian Skirmishers (3), 1 Barbarian Cavalry (2), 1 Dragon Rider (10), Total (15)Cont. of rules in next post.
>>46566768War:Battles are akin to those in Risk.Once you go to war with another country, you enter war mode. First, the attacker has to roll Xd6, where in X is the amount of base value the attacker wants to use. Can not be more than their max base value. Then the defender rolls Yd6, where in Y is the amount of base value the defender wants to use. Can not be more than their max base value. Then, rolls are sorted, from high to low. The next step can be explained best with an example:Attacker chose to roll 4d6: 6, 4, 3, 2Defender chose to roll 5d6: 6, 6, 3, 1, 1In this exchange, the attacker loses three base value, and the defender one.Every roll stands for 1 base value. For every higher roll from the attacker, the defender loses one base value. The opposite is also true. When tied, the defender wins that exchange. The lowest extra rolls (1 in this case) are discarded.Please namefag with a tripcode so I know there's no fakefags.Technology is early Antiquity, think Mesapotamia, Early Egypt etc.Other than the war, the game is very rule light, and rule of cool can often win over rule of logic.Ask any questions to me.
I don't have time to fully commit today, but may I suggest one "AI" nation that'll act as a rouge threat? It was a pretty fun aspect in the last game it was incorporated.
Pic related is a proposed map of peoples/races/cultures. Of course subject to change, of course>>46567125Of course, go ahead!
>>46567298What people/races/cultures are there?
>>46567336None as of yet, will be decided by the first civs in those areas.
>>46567298Here are my suggestions that you may roll for:1. Fascist beaver-folk. (dem military forts)2. Imperialist harpies like JPG.3. Mud constructs. 4. Barbarian loxo. or5. Giant, bear-sized, sentient echidnas. (the last AI used)
>>46567461If anything, beaver-folk would be scarier than those, because they're bulkier.
>>46567496I see, but beaver is gentle vegetarian though
>>46567298Well my guess would be that the purple and/or red territory is our classic Greco-Roman city-state area, with either the yellow or orange being the near-east Persian equivalent. Green or orange would both be sensible breeding grounds for the steppe peoples and barbarians.But if the start is like really early, then we probably need to have ourselves some Assyrian-tier assholes pushing both civilized and tribal alike around.
>>46567559The things I had in mind when designating the territories:Purple: Greece-esque city/island statesRed: Roman-esqueGreen: BarbariansYellow: Egypt-esqueOrange: Abyssinia-esque
>>46567790Nignogistan is fooken yuuuuuge then.Well I'll probably make a nation soon enough.
>>46568025Well, it's more like general cultures/shared values than countries. And it's definitely not certain, really depends on the posters.
Who's all going to be playing this game? Also, OP is super cool for rolling with that "AI" idea.
>>46568300Ayy thanks senpai. Might slightly edit those suggestions though (Angel-esque creatures instead of harpies, Instead of beavers, wierd germanic tribes that build dams and underwater houses and ritually eat wood and shit). I'll try to keep it as human as possibleWould actually like some players though, since it's getting pretty late and actually running a game would be pretty useless soon.

>>46568841Thanks senpai. Is this the location you meant?As for peoples, it's up to you to make something up, if you want to. If you don't want to it's going to be something greekish

>>46566768>Name of Country: Narbanica>Government: Plutocratic Republic (City-State)>Religion: Lastation/Noire>Peoples/race: Narbanicans (quasi-French catgirls capable of breeding with other humanoids, 1 in 100 is male)>Location: The pointy bit of green between the purple and red at the coast.>Fluff: Narbanica is a modest city-state of special importance given the barbarity of its neighbors. It serves as a bridge between barbarian and civilized cultures by virtue of location, though its inhabitants have little in common with and little sympathy for the former. Narbanica is also notable because it is largely run by females, as the majority of its citizens are women. They are a trading hub but also produce a great deal of fine cloth and architectural-grade stones. There is little in the way of metal or timber nearby, and so things made of these materials are considered very valuable. The overwhelming majority of the city is made of quarried stone, and due to extreme scarcity in the past, it has become a cultural and legal expectation that buildings are made with no doors. Crime is therefore punished very harshly, with the lightest sentence resulting in exile.

>>46569623>Accepted, green is now Narbanican (catwomen). Is this location fine?Yep that location is good. Though I would suggest that green be all sorts of beastmen/monstergirls rather than just Narbanicans. Better fits with the whole barbarian lands thing.
>>46569623Should we start or wait for more people?
Everyone's agreed now, so we can start. More people can always join. Start rolling fellows!
