And helped me do so too, thanks for that!

Starvation is a horrid tactic, certainly and it is presumably what most of the helot population will face under the Laconniers, who want to bring back the old system and the old famines or the Leaguers who really don’t care. The Hallasurq’s on the other hand are likely to embark on their own orgy of slavery and genocide.
While no rebellion, including the one of my mc, can absolutely guarantee there won’t be famine I think he’d be the only one not to prioritize the current elites in such an event. .

Hey, I will not starve Shayard helots I will share equally the food in Shayard. I just let rest of Hegemony fence for themselves. But Is not Laconiers = Helots haters I mean all we have to sacrifice something. I would try to maintain other provinces except Hegemony main land. Still I don’t think I could save them I would save all I can.

I will use nacionalism but I will share food equally. Nobles will retain property but while famine is running the crops are property of state and shared equally. I need my commoners alive or all is lost


#1496

I don’t think there will be hunger as long as there is enough animals in the forest… my bear meat alone can already sustain half of my rebel’s ration, we just need to breed enough rabbits and dears and sustain the trees in the forest :slight_smile:


#1497

forest cannot guarantee a supply for hundred of millions during several years like you could imagine barely could save a several hundreds lol.


#1498

But the forest seems capable enough to supply food to rabbits and dears, animals eat less anyway… so animals eat plant, we eat animals…Lol :-):rofl:


#1499

My friend ecological systems doesn’t work that way I assure you and more in a realistic game maybe you just let harrowing going or you will starving everyone :wink:


#1500

Hmmm… i sincerely hope there are ways other than Harrowing, because that’s my speech when i rally all the villagers “There must be other ways than Harrowing, Thaumatrach is tainting the true teaching of the Angels” …

Harrowing should be like nuclear power plant , there should be renewable or alternative sourses of energy after we dismantle all nuclear power plant :-):stuck_out_tongue:


#1501

Firstly, I’m quoting this in full next time someone tells me one of my writing projects is “overly ambitious”.

Second, well, when I say “the rebellion” it’s sort of like when New Yorkers say “the city”… Of course I know there are other rebellions. I just know that mine is the best. And soon, they will, too.


#1502

Sartifer sounds to me like Lucifer saucepan why? Sarten means saucepan and Sarten + Lucifer = Sartifer :wink:
@Havenstone could I just kill him right away no use he is an heretic so Burning in a stake rip. Mara would never accept the help of one teurge even if is game over. Now if it is , I have to create other character instead Evil Gandhi


#1503

Oh, that’s excellent! It gives a chance for the writer to wrangle different aspects of alliances and Hegemonic breakdown into the story. Plus, it sort of takes the MC’s exceptionalism away. I mean, I imagine that, after the Whendward Band scores their first big win against the Karagond authorities, the system is going to break down pretty quickly.

I think your character is the one shaping the more unique route than anyone else’s, Mara. I’m pretty solid that by Game 3 we’ll have the “INT2 route” the “COM0 easy route” and the “Mara route” :slightly_smiling_face:


#1504

I really believe I would not reach the end of the series. But for once a game let me a serious and brutal stakes role-playing I will follow. And Mara is totally against Teurge and will never use it so I start to suspect that is directly gameover in the next game.


#1505

That’s true of almost everyone in the game though, isn’t it? Kalt gets a description. Suzane doesn’t; nor do Elery, Pin or (beyond a superficial “big and strong”) Radmar, or most of the rest. In general I’m happy for readers to fill in physical details, not just for romanceable characters.


#1506

That’s a good philosophy not describe too much. Also I would be able to skip and burn the lucifer guy orI am supposed to use Blood magic Because I need to know it to create another character.


#1508

I wonder what options you have planned for players who don’t intend to (or succeed in) becoming one of the ruling powers of the post-Hegemony?


#1509

Pull a Diocletian, enjoy a seaside resort.


#1510

Kingmaker, eminence grise, prophet on the run, perpetual rebel…there’ll be a few different options.

Edit: including, of course, corpse. Unquiet or otherwise.


#1511

I am worried about Mara and The demonic saucepan… @Havenstone :sob: And that led to the question How deep bad ends will be I want that when Mara decided not use anyone with magic If is a ending will have some epilogue. Even if is a sad tale of failure


#1512

Kingmaker , i suppose is to support a ruler…
Could i made Suzanne into Queen or another RO? :slight_smile:


#1513

I hope it means make me and the Lacoste heir ruling.


#1514

I don’t suppose our group will ever have the juridical or philosophical pedrigree to try and create new institutions of power from the old Hegemony, will it? Something like a loose confederation of allied states sounds like a good plan, but it’d probably be the result of a very lucky scenario
