    Players can still join the game, even though it has started.

    Introduction

    This is a strategic war game. With that in mind, the units and buildings you create will be placed on the map. If you prefer simple IOTs, this isn't for you. This is....experimental to say the least.

    Alliances

    The Allies, largely a collection of democratic, capitalist states are at war with the Warsaw Pact, a collection of communist dictatorships. The Allies and Warsaw Pact will need to use a combination of military power and strategic alliances with neutral powers to win this war!

    There are three sides.

    Allies: Fast striking and extremely important infantry units. The powerful Chronosphere is able to teleport a non-infantry attack force into the middle of enemy territory, which changes the way war is fought forever.

    Warsaw Pact: Weaker infantry. Power vehicles and airforce. Pact members employ the powerful Iron Curtain, which can project an force field around a territory, preventing the Allies from attacking it.

    Neutrals: These nations aren't at war at the beginning like Allied and Warsaw Pact nations will be. However, they're militarily weak. To build mid-level and late-level units and structures requires them to seek Production Contracts with either the Soviets of Allies. Production contracts last a specified amount of time and the Soviets and Allies will want something in return. If a neutral attacks an Ally or Warsaw Pact, the neutral is at war with ALL the Allies or Warsaw Pact.

    Because of this, neutrals can attack other neutrals with only defensive pacts being a deterrent. At some point, the Warsaw Pact of Allies must see you as a valuable target however....

    Neutrals can join either the Allies or Warsaw Pact later in the game but once someone join a faction, they can't withdraw. The Allies and WP can sign ceasefires.

    The game ends when all the Warsaw Pact or Allies are wiped out and all wars are over. The survivors all "win" but the top players get a reward.

    Starting Out

    Make your nation. Select 30 territories. Pick your capital (this is where you free buildings will be created). Pick your faction.

    Constructing Buildings/Units

    You can only construct one building per construction yard.

    Units cost money and require the creation of certain buildings. How many buildings you have limit how many units you can build per turn. If you have one War Factory for instance, you can only build one vehicle per turn. Four barracks? You can build four infantry per turn.

    Neutrals can build power plants, ore refineries, ore silos, and barracks. The only units they can train without production contracts are Rifle Infantry and Engineers.

    Attacking/Defending

    Units aren't pooled, they're placed on the map in the building they're created. In other words, a rifle infantry create from a barracks in Ohio....will be Ohio.

    To attack a force on the map, you must send your units against the defending unit. Your attack orders should be a bit detailed (I.E, tell me the order of battle for your units at least). Defenders, you should probably send me a PM detailing defense doctrines (do you want your defense structures to defend first or units or a combination?)

    Units have ZoC. Entering an enemy unit's ZoC will reduce movement of your unit by 2 unless you're moving in to attack the unit.


    Transferring Credits/Ore

    You can't simply send 500 credits to another player to carry out a deal. Either the seller or buyer need to use a transport or cargo truck to move the ore to an ore silo. Ore silos on coasts are extremely useful because transports can carry 500 ore. Otherwise, cargo trucks carry ore over land for 100.

    Trade

    Nations can trade with one another. Over land, this requires a cargo truck. Player A will send his cargo truck from his capital to the capital of the nation he's trading with. When Player A's truck reaches the capital, Player B generates 10% of the amount of ore Player A generates. When the truck comes back, Player A generates 10% of what Player B makes.

    Naval trade is more lucrative. This involves building a freighter (costs $20 each and can only be built in sub pens/naval yards). Send the freighter to another nation's port (unless the territories are really close to another on land, in which case don't do that), and it's t he same same as land trade only with 30%.

    Strategy

    Rifle Infantry: These units are the backbone of early armies. Because of their numbers, they can be thrown at the enemy to soften up defenses before the main attack. Their cheapness allows them to be garrisoned on even your most isolated territories to provide some kind of defense against invasion.

    Blitz: Since Armies can move five territories at a time, you can blitz the enemy. If there are no defenders a territory, it falls automatically and without a fight.

    Amendments

    Introducing Roads, Railways, and Highways

    Movement of all units reduced to 3. Building this infrastructure doesn't require CY's build which mean you can build as many as you want a turn.

    Roads: Cost $10 each. Traveling along a road boosts speed.

    Railways: Costs $20 each. Traveling along a railway GREATLY increases speed.

    Highways: Costs $20 each. Traveling along faster than road, slower than railroad. These add 5% defensive bonus in territories they're built in.

    History: In the 30's and 40's Mongolia, like China was undergoing a revoultion. But unlike China, it established its Communist government faster, while China was still divided. It saw this as a prime time to attack China, and did so. All of of Northern China is under the control of Mongolai by the end of the war. Then it helped Korea by helping it establish a worker's paradise, and annexing shortly later. It was one of the origanal signers of the Warsaw Pact, and after the USSR fell, carried on the the Worker's paradise.

    Yes, 30. :)

    I'm hoping on getting anywhere between 10 to 15 players for this, which even then would only fill up 25% to 50% of the map.

    Noodleate of Rangoon



    Spoiler :


    Leader: King Krab (not actually a king. or a crab)
    Capital: Rangoon (for those who don't know, it's on the eastern part of that half circle that borders the Bay of Bengal and the Andaman Sea)
    Religion: Buddhism
    Language: No national language due to having like 10, but most business is conducted in Indian
    National animal: guess

    A combination of Indian and Southeast Asian cultures, the Noodleate was founded in the 50's to keep SE Asia safe from war. War sucks, especially when it involves nukes. Anyway, Rangoon was chosen as the capital because it had the most delicious food. Not much has happened since the founding. Sure, it's got Hainan, but that's more for tasty food than an outpost to curb aggression. No one's been interested in the area for years, and King Krab plans to keep it that way.
