I’m not certain if I’ll be doing that. I know for a fact I want to include different methods of conquest and accruing power–ranging from philosophical contributions, subjugation of the mortal world, and godly chicanery–but Genghis Khan put it best:
Conquering the world on horseback is easy; it is dismounting and governing that is hard.
That’s the reason the Mongols were never able to sustain their empire, even after a multitude of reforms “Westernizing” their government and centralizing administrative and military power, they just couldn’t keep up with the thousands of factors that the coalescing of such a variety of different cultures and kingdoms entailed.
If I do continue working on the game, I imagine I’ll take the Persian approach where you’ll be a “King of Kings”, perhaps running an occupation government, settling disputes between nobles, keeping your clients unified under your leadership, but leaving the difficult monotony of the thing up to vassals. Though, feel free to dispute that!
Thanks for expressing interest! You can absolutely be “kind and just”, that serves a double-effect of giving everyone reason to worship you and making it difficult for others to kill you without causing an uproar.
On romance, I don’t know if I’m qualified to add that, haha. I’m in middle school and haven’t had a lot of that type of experience, so I can’t imagine anything I’d write would be more than cheesy and overly-dramatic, but I’ll consider it.
@pikachu_boy, @Harley_Robin_Evans, @Blank, @Cool165, @Mei_Hiroshi and @ItachiUchiha, so glad you enjoyed it, I’m going into school soon so I got some work surrounding that, however, I’ll see about updating it for you guys!
Oh and as a side note, I’m having difficulty editing my post, so until I get that worked out I’ll have to put update links in the comments. You’ll have to suffer for my incompetency, sorry!
