LINESII- Into the Darkness- Part II

Spoiler for The Story so Far:
On one small arm of a spiral galaxy, in the solar system of a middling-sized sun, there is something unique.

Humanity.

Countless millennia ago they first appeared, roaming around the world. In a few rare locations, they settled.

Nations arose. Khemri, Lords of the Setting Sun, Veritas, Children of the One, and many more.

For centuries, the nations of this 'Cradle of Civilization' grew and prospered. Conflicts broke out. The weak were assimilated by the strong. From the northwest, the isolated Eldranians contacted the rest of the world. Refusing to accept that there was other human life, they struck into the cradle. Many nations and countless people fell before them, but they could not support their war forever. The great nation of Veritas brought together a coalition, and destroyed the Eldranian threat forever.

Following the fall of Eldrania, the world fell under two spheres of influence. Khemri and its Crystalist allies in the west, Veritas and its Oneist Supporters in the east.

Tensions hit their breaking point when Khemri invaded the sovereign nation of Nurmafer. Veritas took advantage and attacked Khemri's cities while its armies were away.

A war broke out, a war that is known to this day as the Great War.

Tides of battle ebbed and flowed, but over time, the economically stronger Crystal Ridge alliance of Gorin, Shalamari and Khemri proved to be too much. Veritas was defeated, split into minor successor states. Some Veritasians left their old lands, to found new nations in distant lands.

Very briefly, the CRA reigned unchallenged. But an enemy that was to prove more than a match for them appeared in the north.

The Lengels, nomadic warriors, poured into the northern cradle in incredible numbers. Weaker nations were quickly conquered and assimilated.

The Lengels seemed unstoppable. They destroyed Davar and Tristaria, the two surviving Veritasian allies, in a matter of years. The Crystal Ridge Alliance, fearing that the power of the Lengels would grow even greater, struck pre-emptively. Perhaps this would have succeeded. But we will never know.

For the Gerbers, historically a minor player in the central cradle, betrayed the CRA. Maps and plans were given to the Lengels, and while the CRA forces battled the surprisingly well-prepared Lengel forces, the Gerbers attacked their neighbours, Shalamari.

Hellish atrocities were committed by both sides. Well over 100 000 civilians were brutally murdered. In the end, Shalamari and Gerber were both broken. Soon afterwards, the Lengels conquered the tattered remenant of Shalamari.

The Crystal Ridge Alliance was broken. Gorin had gone into isolation, only Khemri stood in the Lengels' way.

But Khemri had been attacked by Kehexou while its forces were away. A brilliant campaign was fought, resulting in the breaking and occupation of Kehexou.

Khemri approached victory. But the victory was in severe jeopardy. For the mighty Lengel horde had arrived at its very doorstep.

Which brings us to the present day. A peace agreement was made between the Lengels, Kehexou and Khemri. The latter nations were joined by Royal Marriage, and now the Lengels will have to turn their attention elsewhere.

In the south, the nations of Guangfei and Trinlin are rapidly becoming great powers. In the north, the horsemen of Gamorrea have forged a vast nation. In the far east, the successors to the fallen nations of the east rebuild, coming into contact with an entirely new group of people beyond...

Some stability has returned to the wartorn Cradle. But no one can tell how long it will last.


Welcome to...

LINESII- Into the Darkness- Part II

I'd like to say that everyone is welcome to join this NES at any time, there's no player limit. NES newbies, you may join, the other NESers and I will show you the ropes. My only request is that you don't just pop in for one turn and wreak havoc by taking over a powerful NPC and wiping out a bunch of neighbours or something like that.

So without further ado, the rules!

Economy

Economy comes from 2 places. Cities, and land, represented by Rural and Urban Economy. 1 Rural Economy point for each region a nation owns. Each special city (I'm using the 3 City system developed by Thlayli, Israelite9191 and Toteone/Camille/Totamille/JessicaKathrinn) will provide one economy point.

Example: You have 1 regional economy point to spend at the beginning of the game. You found your first cities and your nation begins to grow. Rural economy increases as you grow larger, Urban as you get more special cities.

Economy will be shown like this: Total economy- Rural economy/City economy

Military

3 stats. Army, Navy, and UU. As ages advance and more powerful units emerge, units become more powerful. I will use a numerical system. Example: Warrior has (1) power, Spearman has (1.5), Swordsman has (3)... And if you write stories about your units' terrific strength, they may get a little power bonus. 1 economy point will train 1000 soldiers or 10 ships.

With UUs, simply describe them to me and I'll put them into your stats.

Ages and Unit Power

Stone Age
The dawn of civilization. Many armies are mere rabbles of warriors, but the spear is rising as a powerful weapon. Also, hunting bows are beginning to be used for military purposes.
Warrior (1), Spearman (1.5), Archer (1.5)

Copper Age
Spearmen dominate the battlefields of the world, but the war-axe is beginning to erode to spear's might. The strengthening bow, as well, is becoming a stronger and stronger counter to the more lightly-armoured axemen. In some regions, cavalry makes its first appearance.
Archer (1.5), Spearman (2), Axeman (2.5)

Bronze Age
All weapons are gaining in strength, but the golden age of the spear is waning. Axes remain very powerful, but they themselves are under threat from the first swords. Early siege weapons are developing.
Archer (2), Spearman (2.5), Axeman (3), Swordsman (3), Horse Archer (4.5)

Iron Age
The sword is the new supreme weapon on the battlefield. The spear and arrow remain as they always have been, but the axe is gradually disappearing. For the first time, melee cavalry is developed.
Archer (2), Spearman (3), Axeman (3.5), Swordsman (4), Horse Archer (4.5), Cavalry (5)

Imperial Age
New technologies both domestic and military define this age. Great works of architecture are completed, as are designs of new military weapons. Siege weapons are growing ever stronger. This age will likely define the path of military technological development in the future.
Archer (3), Spearman (4), Axeman (4.5), Swordsmen (5), Horse Archer (5), Cavalry (6)

Note: Several units are more expensive: Bajo-Oni (10/Eco Point), Bigun (5/Eco Point), Pentareme (5/Eco Point), Titan (5/Eco Point)

Population

Is now a word-based stat. Here are the levels.

Tiny - <50 000
Small- 50 000-250 000
Medium- 250 000-1 500 000
Large- 1 500 000-10 000 000
Huge- 10 000 000-100 000 000
Massive- 100 000 000-1 500 000 000
Colossal- >1 500 000 000

Conscription

You can enlist a portion of your population to fight for you. You can ask for a certain number, and I will determine how many heed your call. You can also draft, but this is less popular.

Generally, if these forces are successful, there is no confidence damage, but if they fail, you suffer both economic damage (from less workers) and a loss of confidence in your rule.

You can request a conscription in your orders and give a request of how many you soldiers you want to raise. I will determine how many come to fight for you.

Education

This statistic is fairly useless in the very early ages, as it is very expensive to maintain and a few smart people are all you need. But as the game progresses having an intelligent population can give you many advantages. Education levels 1-3 cost you 1 economy point per turn for every 500 000 people. Education levels 4-6 cost you 2 economy points per turn for every 500 000 people. Education levels 7-9 cost 3 economy points per turn for every 500 000 people. Education level 10 costs 4 economy points per turn for every 500 000 people.

Confidence

Your people's confidence in nation and leadership. Low confidence=revolts and revolutions. High confidence=militia on the defense, strong faith in your actions.
(Hateful, Resentful, Tolerating, Neutral, Respecting, Admiring, Loving, Worshipping)

Culture

Culture can increase through stories, wonders, and Cultural or Religious centers. It is the collective strength and rich history of a nation, and can lead people to great patriotism and self-sacrafice for their beloved nation, if the culture is strong.
(None, Pathetic, Mediocre, Average, Strong, Influential, Outstanding, Wonder of the World)

3 City System

Building a city costs 1 economic point.

Economic centers- Cities surrounded by red, these provide you with one economy point per turn.

Cultural centers- Cities surrounded by blue, these provide you with one economy point per turn and random culture and education levels. These cities are quite bad to lose.

Religions centers- Cities surrounded by green, these cities provide you with one economic point per turn and are the beating hearts of your religions. They provide great bonuses to culture, confidence, and the spread of your religion, but are devastating to lose.

Wonders

At great expenditure, you may create mighty monuments to you and your nations power. You must pay economy points to build them, and they can't be rushed.They have great cultural and confidence bonuses, but won't produce troops and give you spending points for no reason. Wonders often create specialty cities.

Government

Your government.

Religion

You start off with a default primitive animism, belief in spirits of nature and things like that. You can create a more advanced religion through a story and the construction of temples. Religions are every bit as powerful here as they are in our world. They give your leader credibility, mold alliances, and break empires.

At this point, there are already several strong, established religions, but religion is an oft-changing thing. New sects can arise, and some faiths fade away.

Stories

I don't give direct bonuses, like +10 galleys, but stories will have positive effects on your nation during the update, maybe giving you a new economic center, better battle results, and the like.

Orders

If you must send more than one PM of orders, please put the basic movements and actions in the first PM, then put smaller references (IE: How things are to be done). This will make my updating easier, and allow you to get the update and stats faster. We both win! You can do just fine without delving into detail. Kal'Thzar has sent 1 PM orders every turn of the game and look at Khemri. Is it suffering from neglect? No! I don't punish people for being vague in their orders, in fact, I like it. If you just say 'attack the nation to my west', I'll make a logical attack judging from the situation. I won't be a jerk and randomly throw them at the enemy like an uncoordinated mob.

In your orders, I want these things:
-Your nation's name should be the first word in your order's title.
-Your stats should be in your orders, in case I delete the stats somehow.

If you wish to start a new nation, fill out the template below please.

Nation Template

The Monarchs have brought their nation into a close relationship with Gorin. Brief war with the Lengels resulted in something of a victory, with the lands west of the Wardash being brought into the control of these two allies. A brief civil war has been ended, due to Gorinese intervention to aid against the hardcore Nordists.

With a strong history of the will of the people, the two cities are sometimes considered bureaucratic by outsiders, though the people believe that a republic is the only way that Alse may be followed. Recently, the two cities have come to merge their ruling councils in the interests of mutual defense, with a Revered elected from within the newly united council. The recent war with Tsaya has made Kelios the most powerful nation in Azulia, though it left Aldis in smoking ruin.

At the end of the 2nd Kehexou War, the two nations made peace. King Ptolemy III Khemr married a young Kehex princess to become King Ptolemy I, of the United Kingdom of Khemri and Kehexou. For a generation, Khemri lived subservient to the Lengels, until its chance at betrayay came at last. It destroyed the Lengel Armies of the south, while Gorin and the True Lengels decimated the north. At last, the Lengels are gone, and Khemri is indisputably the strongest nation in the world. No attempts to shake it off of its throne have yet succeeded... yet the greater the height, the greater the fall.

To give your word is binding, and thus Malier are usually considered absolutely truthful. The Anesh'Seb-Eyl (From Seven Islands, the official name of the current regent), who is advised by his (legislative) ministers, would face an uproar if he would directly lie. In appearance, the Malier are usually blonde-haired, and are generally a cheerful lot. However, in battle they ingest several types of mushroom, under whose hallucinogenic effects they can fight to the very limits of death before tiring. Stories abound of a Malier who didn't notice his arm was gone before he'd killed two enemies with the protruding bone.

The brilliant Kallipoloi Strategos, Telamon of Ruthless Bronze, subdued all the warring cities and brought around a new era of unity.

At the end of the 2nd Kehexou War, the two nations made peace. King Ptolemy III Khemr married a young Kehex princess to become King Ptolemy I, of the United Kingdom of Khemri and Kehexou. For a generation, Khemri lived subservient to the Lengels, until its chance at betrayay came at last. It destroyed the Lengel Armies of the south, while Gorin and the True Lengels decimated the north. At last, the Lengels are gone, and Khemri is indisputably the strongest nation in the world. No attempts to shake it off of its throne have yet succeeded... yet the greater the height, the greater the fall.

Religion

Religion

Alse- A quasi-philosophical religion whose rather loosely-defined goal is to set the world on the 'Path' towards perfection.

Ancestor Worship- The worshipping of One's Ancestors.

Animism- The belief in the holiness of nature, and the greater forces controlling it.

Neo-Animism- Ikki Animism, centered around humanity's struggle for enlightenment.

Gooranism- Gamorrean Animism, rotating around the Supreme Goddess Goora.

Atheism- The belief in no gods.

Bladeism- Swade belief that blades are holy, and that the almighty Blademaster wields 6 blades, each exemplifying a facet of existence.

Church of the One- The first and most organized religion on Tellus, other than possibly Crystalism, the Church originated in Veritas, and is practiced from Emor to Nkondi. Believers follow the One, who is the only true deity, and created all that exists out of Chaos. Man was placed on a paradise by the One, but due to his sins, they were cast down into Tellus. The One and his Three Maxims (Light, Truth, and Order) are praised above all things, and an established hierarchy of priests and disciples spread the faith to new lands as fast as they are found.

Path of God- Emoran sect of Oneism, more interested in what people do than what people say.

Pirian Oneism- An orthodox version of Oneism, based around Hypandium scripts, which are believed to be the most true to the original texts of the Church of the One. Practiced in Davar and Arcadia.

Way of the One- Guangfei's Oneist Church, which encourages freer thinking and separation from Veritasian religious imperialism.

Crystalism- Founded in Yath al'Shanaal of old, the heart of the religion lies in Wardash and the Stone Circles of Ruby. The Red Lady, mistress of death and love, is the matron deity, and rules over Netherworld - the realm of dead souls. The namesake of the religion is the frequent use of crystals in rituals to contact the Netherworld for wisdom, blessings and other things. Crystalism is expected to spread all over the civilized world over the course of the next century by its proponents.

Masra- Gorinese form of Crystalism, worships Dula, the husband of the Red lady. It has long since overtaken Orthodox Crystalism as the dominant form of the religion.

Divotheism- The name for the varied religions of aboriginal New-Worlders which share one theme- the worship of the 'Sky Gods'.

Chanc- Chancotol Divotheism, which claims that the Gods want their children to use their gifts to spread wealth and prosperity through trade.

Ezamri- Zemoran Divotheism, which believes that the Gods want their children to use their gifts for the advancement of the human race.

Dualism- Malkavian beliefs featuring the two gods, Bane and Ignatia. Their differing interpretations among the Malkavian clans are what lead to much of its violent internal conflicts and political instability.

Banism- An evolution of Dualism, Banism states that this world is merely a test that Bane has created for us. Those who hold the ideals of Order, Peace and Justice in high regard and strive to remake the world in their own image shall find a place in Paradise. Peace will never be achieved while the people remain divided, only when the world is under one flag and one culture shall glorious peace reign eternal.

Duality and Balance- More of a philosophy than a religion, followers believe in the duality of the world, and the balance that must be kept. Originates from former Dula-Hathran. Only a few surviving Dula practiced this, but the religion experienced a renaissance during Tristaria's existence. But now that its patron nation is gone, the future of this religion is in jeopardy. The Gerbers crushed it with Oratheism, and Kerania forcefully converted people to the Church of the One. Ironically, the Lengels offered the best chance for Duality's survival. With all three of these nations gone now, the future of this faith, for better or for worse, is in the balance.

New Eldism- Radically different than its predecessor, New Eldism teaches that all gods are one, and that god is Eldos. He preaches knowledge and peace.

Khemri Polytheism- Belief in the Khemri pantheon. The Holy codex documents the gods, the Book of the Dead teaches morals, and Mazdaism offers glimpses at the future of the Khmerian people, as well as being possibly the first step to monotheism.

Andues- Khemri polytheism, but there is only one god, Nikkal-Rae.

Aegypt- The hybrid of Andues and Oundainty, with one god from each faith. It is the dominant religion of the UKKK.

Lengri- The religion of the Lengels, this faith is quite similar to Animism in most of its facets, but several discrepancies reveal deeply rooted differences in Lengel culture. For example, Lengri teaches that battle is the epitome of the human soul, revealing all of its weaknesses and virtues. A respect of a higher power is shown in Lengel worship of the Koke, the Eternal Blue Heaven. Lengri's support is primarily in the Lengel homelands. Outside, different religions and Tengri reign.

Mantea- Shu, Goddess of Day, The Good Mother, the Red Lady. Shi, Goddess of Night, The Temptress, the Blue Lady. Both are polar opposites, and both are worshipped equally in the faith of Mantea (Equilibrium in the Yathai tongue).

Messianic Gnosticism- A syncretic religion, Messianic Gnosticism, also known as Messianic Oneism, incorporates Bladeism, New Eldism, Oneism, Kyriotheism (itself a modified Oneist religion), and Gerougioikai and Guarelai philosophy. The religion grew from a general disillusionment from the Great Sins of the North. The skeptical southern peoples had always questioned and probed and refined their religion, existing in an atmosphere of constant dialogue, competition, and compromise. The One God of Oneism is split into multiple aspects, as in Bladeism. The aspects correspond to the religions: the kindly Autorex, the mighty Strategos, and the peace bringing Hierophant. Prince, Paladin, and Priest, the God of Messianic Gnosticism is also prophesied to come as a liberator of all men. The Great Prophets of Messianic Gnosticism are Eugenides, Phidias, and Alexandros.

Nordism- The belief in one god who is the supreme ruler of everything. The people are his servants in life and the afterlife. The supreme god is often seen as offering people paradise in the afterlife for life of servitude in life maintaining the world he created. People who are lazy or destructive are sent to a life of pain and misery in the core of the earth. They spend one life equal to their afterlife in this tomb of torture which they are reincarnated and given a second chance at making it to eternal paradise. The religion teaches that faith in the supreme god along with hard work, generosity, and just being a good person will lead to paradise.

Otornosiasm- Worship of the earth god, Otornos. He will aid his followers, and they will spread his word by holy book and holy sword. The holy book of Otornosiasm, or Yána, teaches the morals of religion and life.

Trinlinism- Trinlinism revolves around the belief in 5 gods. Zester is for the sky, Terrium is of the earth, Wiviter is the god of the water, Ouvunter is the god of the wind, and Cinnav is the god of the fire.

I would have the first post had I not had to upload an image

After a few failed attempts to make a more complex flag for Kelios, I decided on something simple:

Cool Cuiv. PM that flag to me in your orders so I can add it to your stats once your nation has been put in (Next update)

@Kal'Thzar- You mean the fact that Khemri and Kehexou are still separate. That's the map as of the end of the update. I did the stats together because I knew the nations were merging AFTER updating.

Since I absolutely suck at reading maps, I just want to make sure that my country is where I think it is.



That thing, right? I might make a story of the Leaving. I'll start with making a better name for it...

I decided against building up a nation in the middle of nowhere, and decided to take a nation already built up in the middle of nowhere.

Skilv'so
Cities: Ivorykeep
Leader: Chancellor Gobe
Religion: Masra Crystalism (100 000)
Government: Elective oligarchy
Economy: 2- 2/0
Population: 100 000
Army: 9000 Spearmen (2)
Navy: 30 Galleys
Education: None
Technology: Copper Age
Confidence: Tolerating
Culture: None
Wonders:
Description: Originally an isolated fortress in the middle of nowhere, Ivorykeep has developed into a centre of trade, living and profession. And... to be honest, they really haven't gotten all that far past being an isolated fortress in the middle of nowhere.

Does anyone actually remember anything about these guys beyond their description? I was hunting through the original thread, and couldn't even find who led them...
