2004-08-31 [Lunnie]: You crazy bastard ;P
2004-08-31 [Duredhel]: lol, why??
2004-08-31 [Lunnie]: I dunno felt like saying that O.o;
2004-08-31 [Shining light]: BUAHAHA...Age of Empires all over again...
2004-08-31 [Shining light]: erm and 'War' the wiki-page was already taken.
2004-09-01 [Duredhel]: Oh, you're right... got to change that. Hey.. this isn't like AoE... or is it?
2004-09-03 [Sturmi]: lol, not exactly
2004-09-03 [Duredhel]: Please read through the stuff and give me feedback ^_^, i need to know if everything is understandable
2007-12-29 [Grengo]: olo
2007-12-31 [Duredhel]: Wow O,o such massive response
2007-12-31 [Grengo]: Well, only five users watching the page. May wanna' make a bit of mentioning about it.
2007-12-31 [Duredhel]: XD I'll put it in my Mood and see what happens :3
2008-01-08 [Duredhel]: Needing help with the racial and religion doctrines thus far :/
2008-01-08 [Grengo]: I'll get on AIM if you're around.
2008-01-12 [Duredhel]: Cmon guys :O! we got 8 watchers! help me finish up the doctrines so we can move on to the good stuff ;)
2008-01-12 [Grengo]: Alrighty. On Aim now.
2008-02-05 [NamelessMerc]: 0.0;
2008-02-05 [Duredhel]: Well for the people who put their names up there, right now I need input and suggestions in the Agent Doctrine Options.
2008-02-05 [Grengo]: I'll help out when I get home.
2008-02-10 [Duredhel]: Some suggestions for more Goods in the economy section would be nice guys :3
2008-02-10 [Grengo]: I'm better at suggesting while on Aim. <_<
2008-02-10 [Adaman]: Yeah, Dur-face.
2008-02-16 [Duredhel]: Ok, City managing is sort of done, now off to city building, imma need some help for that one, so any volunteers are appreciated.
2008-02-17 [NamelessMerc]: City building in what way? Maps, or coming up with buildings to put in them?
And yes, I know that question was stupid...
2008-02-17 [Duredhel]: Hahha ^^ well you see, certain buildings enable other buildings, tecnologies, spells and doctrines to be researched. But its hard to track'em all down, so basically I wanted to see if you guys could fill in the links so i wouldn't be forced to stop after every building and look for all every spell/technolo
2008-02-17 [NamelessMerc]: Hm, well I know I'll have some free time on Monday, so I know I can throw some time into it then.
2008-02-17 [Duredhel]: Aye, well I won't be needing the help till all the technologies, spells and weapons are done, so no worries.
2008-02-23 [Duredhel]: Ok, actually I'm needing some help right now. Lets hope some of you guys are willing to help D:. Go to the city managing page and check the information there, also know that the minimum size for a territory's population is 500 and the maximum 10,000. Ok, with tha info, could you guys please go to the doctrines section and browse through the requirements for the doctrines? I need you guys to let me know if, resource wise, anything seems too excessive or too lenient. And as always, any other feedback would be greatly appreciated.
2008-02-24 [Grengo]: Sure. I'll check it out tomorrow though, since I'm a little tired now. >_>
2008-07-24 [Tekkon KinKreet]: ok, so i want to join and help out, but for some reason everything i typed in disappeared when i pressed the submit changes button. but until that gets fixed, know that i'm here. ^^
2010-03-09 [Duredhel]: If anyone's interested, we're gonna start this XD. I'm looking for one or two players :P.
2010-03-13 [Duredhel]: Ok! we've started. People who might want to join are still welcome to do so. I'm open to any questions anyone might have, so just post here or PM me.
2010-03-20 [Duredhel]: Turn 2 :O... people are still free to join :3
2010-03-26 [Duredhel]: Btw, [Roma], [Lepellier] keep in mind that when you're RPing your characters in an adventure, you can get any NPCs you meet to join your party or hire them as advisors, generals, etc. As long as you can convince them, that is. (that's the way you get party members and new heroes and advisors and the sort)
2010-03-26 [Lepellier]: .< D'oh!
2010-03-26 [Grengo]: Just read up on everything. I'm willing to join :V I'll start after I sleep, though (1:44 am right now) <_<
2010-03-30 [Duredhel]: So, Lepellier, you gonna join X-men RP in the end? XD
2010-03-30 [Lepellier]: Hmmm...I could. Do you really need someone to?
2010-03-30 [Duredhel]: Hahah, nah, I mean its always nice to have new players, but only if they wanna join.
2010-03-30 [Lepellier]: Well, I did, but I'd have to work on a character quite a bit.
2010-03-30 [Duredhel]: You do? Xmen RP requires even less stuff than a standard RoL chara tho >__>. You just have to fill out a character sheet.
2010-03-30 [Lepellier]: I know. lol. I'm working on my character right now.
2010-03-30 [Duredhel]: Aye, cool.
2010-04-01 [Duredhel]: We've also got space for one more player here >o<, if yer interested, send me a message. You can also ask [Lepellier], [Grengo] or [Roma] about the game if yer unsure :3 i'm sure they will vouch for how simple it actually is (though it looks complicated)
2010-04-03 [Duredhel]: Turn 4 peeps, you can move your armies and issue orders again.
2010-04-03 [Roma]: MWAHAHAHA!
2010-04-10 [Grengo]: Sorry for the long delay. Got back from NYC a few days and have been busy ever since <_<;
2010-04-24 [Roma]: Ouch, there goes Palescia.
2010-05-15 [Roma]: Ki'ariros HAS Teraar :P
2010-05-27 [Lepellier]: Whoa, who's the new nation on the block?
2010-07-05 [Duredhel]: Guys :O. So sorry, but this is going on hiatus for a week to 10 days because of finals. Posting here takes quite a bit of time because of calculations. After that time we'll resume as normal :3. (Mebbe in that time we can get a new player ;D)
2010-07-05 [Lepellier]: Alright, sounds fine and dandy, Dur.
2010-07-09 [Duredhel]: This'll start back up on monday :3, sorry for the hiatus guys.
2010-07-13 [Duredhel]: wrriiIIIII! and we're back online peeps, i'll post in a bit.
2010-07-18 [majikseb]: Good lord this shit is complex, but I'd like to join anyway! Nobody seems to have taken the cat people, right?
2010-07-18 [Earoluim]: * looks around *
2010-07-18 [majikseb]: Character info sent.
2010-07-18 [Duredhel]: Hey Eraoluim, we're always lookin' for players if yer interested XD.
2010-07-18 [majikseb]: This game is like "Age of Empires" + "Civilization" + "Total War" + "Risk." Lol. :3 At least from what I've seen XD
2010-07-18 [majikseb]: So do our main characters gain levels and get into battles and everything alongside our armies?
2010-07-18 [Duredhel]: Yup. Aditionally you can also use them to go adventuring as if they were D&D characters and take whatever magic, info or gold you get back to your kingdom.
2010-07-18 [majikseb]: Lol... Can they bring guards or troops with them? Because I don't see how my healer/support character can do jack crap on his own, lol...
2010-07-18 [Duredhel]: You can have a retinue.
2010-07-19 [majikseb]: Awww... I'm still not on the map :( Oh well... The Sages shall be here soon . . . We shall rule the world! . . . With love . . . And peace . . . And other prissy things :3
2010-07-19 [Duredhel]: Sorry, I'm a bit busy with work stuff
2010-07-19 [majikseb]: Lol its okay XD We all have lives lol
2010-07-26 [majikseb]: So....
2010-07-26 [Duredhel]: Dure be sick since thursday >__<
2010-08-12 [Tekkon KinKreet]: so how do i go about joining this?
2010-08-12 [Duredhel]: This is kind of hiatus'd right now because of real life stuff :3, but it will be back in about a 15 days. Send me a Pm then and I can explain how to join.
2010-08-12 [Tekkon KinKreet]: ok will do
2010-09-01 [Earoluim]: Hmm,... * looks around a bit more *
2010-09-01 [majikseb]: :/ When Dur gets more time!
2010-09-03 [Duredhel]: Ok, let's do a quick recount, imma make new countries this weekend to get this back up next week. Who is interested in joining?
2010-09-03 [Lepellier]: I'm still in this, if that counts?
2010-09-03 [Duredhel]: XD yer still in. I'm refering to new people :3
2010-09-05 [Earoluim]: I am interested, * bows my head *
2010-09-05 [Tekkon KinKreet]: me
2010-09-05 [Duredhel]: Ok guys :3 i'll send you a PM today to start creating your nations. Start thinking of stuff like the name and race you want to use :O
2010-09-06 [majikseb]: I submitted my country to you already I think... You still got it, right? :3
2010-09-06 [Duredhel]: Yup, got it, gonna put it up with the two new ones as soon as i finish with Tekkon and Earoluim :3
2010-09-07 [majikseb]: Yay, I'm kind of in the game now! :D
2010-09-09 [majikseb]: Yay, I'm totally in the game now! :D
2010-09-11 [majikseb]: LET THEM EAT CAKE!
2010-09-11 [majikseb]: Is it just me, or did the map just change a bit?
2010-09-11 [Roma]: It had to have changed since the last map only had Orrick, Sif'eski, and Ki'ariros on it.
2010-09-11 [majikseb]: No but I mean it seemed like some older territories expanded... *Gulp.*
2010-09-19 [Duredhel]: Starting turn change! You'll be able to issue new orders tomorrow!
2010-09-23 [Duredhel]: Sorry guys, been kind of busy, I'll do all updates today :3. If you post something in Rping areas and I dont reply for a whole day, please feel free to poke me.
2010-09-27 [Duredhel]: Not gonna be able to do much updating this week guys, kind of swamped. Also, poke me if I don't reply for a WHOLE DAY, not one hour :/
2010-09-29 [Duredhel]: Ok guys, i'll be able to post again tomorrow.
2010-10-05 [Duredhel]: OK! Guys, I'm considering a few changes to be made, but wanted to know what you, the players, thought about them.
1. Stockpiling gold seems to be a bit too easy, so I'm thinking of making it so all soldiers have a 3 or maybe 5 gold upkeep to indicate they are being paid a salary.
2. I'm thinking of setting up a small "available mercenaries" section in each territory, so you can hire troops with some local flavour if you're in a jiffy.
3. I'm considering setting up a small area where you can take premade armies or armies constructed from the troops you have available and pitch them against each other for competition sake and to gain some battle experience. Lemme know your thoughts on this.
2010-10-06 [Lepellier]: I really like the available mercenaries part. The arena like idea seems a little strange to me because, from what it sounds like, the troops just suddenly end up there? Maybe I just need more details. As for the gold thing, I'm not sure how I feel about that, because, well, I like my gold.
2010-10-06 [Roma]: 1. call me a doofus, but I guess I don't see how that's drastically different - must have more information XD
2. YES! I think that's a grand idea.
3. Uh, hell yes? Sounds like fuuuuuuuuuuuuu
2010-10-06 [Duredhel]: Lep, the troops are never actually there, its an GAME AREA not an actual place in the world or an arena. Basically its for you guys to do practice battles.
2010-10-06 [Lepellier]: Ah, gotcha. I kinda like the idea. It's like a fight simulator. lol
2010-10-06 [Duredhel]: Yup, its just so you guys can test out strategies and actually fight each other without compromising your countries :3. Ok then, i'll apply all of these things on next turn.
2010-10-11 [majikseb]: Sounds cool. But... I don't want to give away the kind of soldiers I'm using.
2010-10-11 [Duredhel]: Up to you :3.
2010-10-11 [Duredhel]: I sort of wish we could get a sixth player, one that DOESN'T have a planetarii nation XD. To even things out. Since right now Planetarii alliance would win everything.
2010-10-11 [Lepellier]: Eh, I feel safe in my little territory COMPLETELY surrounded by larger nations... Not really, but...
2010-10-11 [majikseb]: Well... That is, if the Planetarii decide to work together. Or what if a smaller country got a strong NPC nation to help it out?
2010-10-11 [Tekkon KinKreet]: at least you have more than one region lol
2010-10-12 [majikseb]: Yeah. Exactly. I've got 1. Lol.
2010-10-12 [Tekkon KinKreet]: strength in numbers and all that. lol maybe us 1 region nations should join up? lol all two of us
2010-10-13 [majikseb]: Maybe. :3 Catfolk have no special connections with the Planetarii, though. But I'd like to open up diplomatic relations, since we're so near.
2010-10-13 [Roma]: Yeah, I think mebbe this stuff should be private. Dun wanna spur the rest of the Planetarii into action by giving away free info on private national matters ;3
2010-10-13 [majikseb]: MAGICKS PEEPLEZ! YOU SHALL BE CONVERTED BY THE POWER OF JEEEEEEBUS!!
2010-10-13 [Roma]: OH! And Maj, consider this your RoL poke. I miss Radix :D
2010-10-13 [majikseb]: X3 Sorry been so busy... I'll do that real quick.
2010-10-13 [Tekkon KinKreet]: i hadn't planned on discussing further really, it was just an offhand remark ^^
2010-10-14 [Veltzeh]: I'm itching to put all the doctrines and magic and such in tables. XD
2010-10-14 [majikseb]: It needs to go in tables. Or at least organize it ALPHABETICALLY for Pete's sake... X3
2010-10-14 [Duredhel]: ctrl+f, there, problems solved.
2010-10-14 [Roma]: The only problem with a table is that its probably going to create more work for Dur, since things are constantly being added and subtracted as we build up our nations (and for me, timing is more important than organization).
Ctrl+F = problem solved :3
EDIT: not to mention, I think it would make more sense to have it organized by magic/research
2010-10-14 [Veltzeh]: Adding and subtracting stuff into and from tables doesn't generate any more work than otherwise adding or subtracting, though...
Mostly it'd be because stuff in tables seems automatically more organised and all statistical and awesome. :3 Would take less space too.
2010-10-14 [Duredhel]: Actually Veltz, it does take a lot more work. Its extremely confusing because tables do not maintain the format once you enter edit mode. I rue the thought of editing anything in your agents page because table might look nice in page, but once you hit edit, they become a big ball o' crap.
2010-10-14 [Veltzeh]: I'm pretty sure that's just you being table-limited. :P I can find the stuff fine even if the table code is a jumble. You can also Ctrl+F on the edit box!
2010-10-14 [Duredhel]: Yes Veltz, but what you just said is the Asperger's equivalent of "it's MY mess, I can find stuff in it" which unfortunately, applies to no one but you :3
2010-10-14 [Veltzeh]: And yet other people use tables too. No use trying to make me feel bad about it this time.
2010-10-14 [Duredhel]: Not saying they cannot be used, just saying that since they lose format when in editing box, they turn into a pain to use.
2010-10-16 [Duredhel]: Guys! I'm swamped with a lot of stuff so turn change will have to come late today or on sunday D:
Sorry for the inconvenience.
2010-10-16 [Veltzeh]: So soon!
2010-10-16 [Veltzeh]: Whee!
2010-10-16 [Roma]: Haha, Vel. You silly silly Vel.
2010-10-16 [Veltzeh]: Is that a compliment? :o
2010-10-16 [Duredhel]: Hahah XD, that's awesome Veltz, you made me smile.
2010-10-16 [Roma]: I am quite impressed with your skills. I think its amusing that you were compelled to show this, but I AM impressed over everything else. So yes. I'm complimenting you.
2010-10-17 [Veltzeh]: Well, I showed it because I thought other people too would like to see it, so yeah. :3 Thankee.
2010-10-17 [Tekkon KinKreet]: everyone is growing... but me lol
2010-10-18 [Duredhel]: Fuck... guys, sorry but this is hiatus'd till Monday 25th. Too much on my plate right now
2010-10-25 [Duredhel]: Yes! I'm back laddies, sorry i had you all hiatus'd, I'll resume this tomorrow ;)
2010-10-25 [Lepellier]: Yay! Teh Dur hath returned!
2010-10-31 [Earoluim]: ...
2010-11-01 [Duredhel]: Erm >,< sorry guys. I'll need some more time. I pushed back a lot of work to go on my trip last week and now i'm paying for it.
2010-11-01 [Earoluim]: * nods my head *
2010-11-10 [Duredhel]: This weekend, starting back up, for real :O!
2010-11-10 [Lepellier]: You sure? :P
2010-11-10 [Duredhel]: Yep
2010-11-15 [Veltzeh]: Durrurrurrur!
2010-11-23 [majikseb]: Holy crud I was gone for like a month AND IT'S STILL NOT GOING!!! O.O
2010-11-23 [Tekkon KinKreet]: only two and a half weeks really... half a month or so
2010-12-08 [Tekkon KinKreet]: ok... now i'm sad... hope dur didn't forget about us.
2010-12-08 [Duredhel]: I'm in finals, guys. I promise I haven't forgotten.
2010-12-08 [Lepellier]: Dun worry. I have exams all this week, into Saturday as well.
2010-12-16 [Duredhel]: Guys, as some of you might notice, I'm setting up some new penalties to reduce population growth, cuz 10% a turn was getting out of hand XD. The idea is that eventually the population of territories sort of stabilizes.
2010-12-16 [Veltzeh]: Yay! Finally my overpopulation problem will lessen. X) ...Hopefully.
2010-12-28 [majikseb]: ARE WE CONTINUING? :D
2010-12-29 [majikseb]: Your problem? My Cat people reproduce so fast they're like rabbits...
2010-12-29 [Veltzeh]: Oh yeah? Shall we compare population growth rates? ;)
2010-12-29 [majikseb]: Planetarii have reduced, cat folk have increased ;D I think I win :P
2010-12-29 [Veltzeh]: That's just the fluff. I had 9 %. :P
2010-12-29 [majikseb]: I warned you that you'd lose. I had 13% during one round, and 11% during the round before we switched the increase rate. :P My people enjoy the process of procreation, what can I say?
2010-12-30 [Roma]: Makes sense. Cats have litters.
2010-12-30 [Veltzeh]: But how for long? :P I suppose we should've compared the problems then, I win that! X)
2010-12-30 [majikseb]: I expertly assigned people to food... BUt I'm nearing max production... Luckily I'm still at a 3000 surplus or so per round. :P
2011-02-19 [Duredhel]: Sorry guys, one month absence cuz I had to move back to Peru, international moves take time XD. I think I'm dropping Majik and keep this going with 4 players (and 3 tops if someone else drops out). 3 is the ideal number but I don't want to oust anyone, and 5 was too much to handle.
2011-05-06 [Veltzeh]: Proood. We still have this! It's not been dead too long! We can still continue!
2011-05-06 [Akayume]: I'm pretty sure I did this once. o.o But I was young and foolish and did not understand. XP
2011-05-06 [Duredhel]: Mebbe we do the test party instead of this right now? >,> This one is so much work XD.
2011-05-06 [Veltzeh]: Psst... simplify the mass combat. XD
Test party works too though.
2011-05-06 [Lepellier]: Sounds gouda to me.
2011-05-06 [Duredhel]: >,> Ok ok I'll try. Imma need to drop some chars on both, tho.
Dude, the combat is actually pretty quick XD. It's the friggin turn changes that kill me XD. Maybe i'll make it so a turn is two weeks... or enlist some veltzhelp.
2011-05-06 [Roma]: Riz'nah! Yes. I am in favor of this living again. But the battles are SOOO boring and detail oriented and I lose steam. :/
2011-05-07 [Veltzeh]: Well I say I'm good with the number crunching so I could do that at least. And then I could make ALL THE TABLES I WANT MUAHAHA!
Even [Roma] agrees the combat could be simplified. ;) For me the issue is probably lack of experience for now, though.
2011-05-07 [Roma]: My issue is 100% lack of experience mixed with a healthy dose of ADD
2011-05-12 [Roma]: But I'll come back and deal with it if you'll just start it up again >_>
2011-05-12 [Duredhel]: Ok ok XD. Gimme till next week, need to work in commissions. So Veltz, you're gonna help me with turn changes and stuff? I'll try to simplify combat too, or at least give you guys less choices in it. Any ideas as to what aspects of combat get so tedious?
2011-05-12 [Roma]: For me, its all the numbers and letters I have to write down, and the quantity of troops to place. I know I've got lots, but still! I have a hard time keeping track.
2011-05-12 [Duredhel]: Uhhm.. aye. Would it be easier if you could just determine one spot for each regiment and it formed around that spot? That way even if a regiment takes up 5 squares, you only need to write down one. It'll take away a degree of control, but players who want to micromanage battles can still do it. You can also determine how the other 4 squares will organize by going something like; "Form up in a line! Form up in a forward V! Double Line!"
2011-05-12 [Roma]: Well... I'm no strategic mastermind anyway, so yeah, that will probably be fine. Unless, of course, there's a noticeable difference in the likelihood of a favorable outcome.
2011-05-12 [Duredhel]: Nah, I don't think it'll make much of a difference unless the forces are matched in an extremely even way.
2011-05-12 [Veltzeh]: Yeah, I can calculate the resources and check the building stuff and all that (well, save for when there isn't any info on what building some building does). I think I know how it's done, but if you want to double-check, make me a little guide.
Also, in case I need to see or edit some protected wikis, you don't need to change wiki permissions since I can edit them anyway. :D I just need to know where they are.
2011-05-12 [Duredhel]: Sending you my little LT masterfile Veltz, check your email in a few mins.
2011-05-12 [Veltzeh]: Bedtime now!
2011-05-13 [Veltzeh]: File is good.
Also, I made a little guide myself, so if it's odd, edit. :o
2011-05-13 [Veltzeh]: By the way, what's the distance between places like Newdon and Serena? Or Kisaki and Deepwood?
2011-05-13 [Duredhel]: They're adjacent :3.
2011-05-19 [Roma]: -cough-
2011-05-19 [Duredhel]: Finals >,<... but ok ok, I'll start with this. We'll pretend we're starting a new turn.
Tekkon and Lep, if you're out there, please let me know if you'd like to continue with this. I'm dropping Majikseb cuz he's gone.
2011-05-20 [Lepellier]: I'm alive. And sure, I'm up to continue. I will let you know I won't be around much this weekend to post, but I'm in.
2011-05-20 [Veltzeh]: So should I update everyone's resources and stuff right now or will we start by announcing our buildings and stuff?
2011-05-20 [Duredhel]: Resources and stuff come first :>
2011-05-20 [Veltzeh]: Okay, I'll make a mock-up update of my own stuff first, then you check it and if it's right, I'll update the other ones. Is that good?
2011-05-20 [Duredhel]: Sounds good :>
2011-05-20 [Veltzeh]: Okay, I forgot to stuff taxes there. Is this order correct?
Turn change, at the start of turn:
1) Resource shipments arrive, resources are produced, population changes.
2) Resource changes take place (taxes, upkeep (food and money)).
3) Units and agents who finish training will become available.
2011-05-20 [Duredhel]: Yush :O
2011-05-20 [Veltzeh]: No wait, still more. :D
Does upkeep (food) change between steps 1 and 2 because there are more people?
2011-05-20 [Duredhel]: Nah, upkeep is done at the very end of the previous turn. So the new people don't consume food the turn they.. uhm.. "arrive"
2011-05-20 [Veltzeh]: But new people pay taxes. XD
2011-05-20 [Duredhel]: Ah, I had not counted on it.... maybe new people don't pay taxes either? >,>
2011-05-20 [Veltzeh]: Yup. This looks pretty good now:
Turn change, at the start of turn:
1) Resource shipments arrive, resources (food, timber, minerals) are produced, money is taxed.
2) Upkeep (food, payment money).
3) Population changes.
4) Units and agents who finish training will become available.
2011-05-20 [Veltzeh]: I put the religion conversion with the population change. But now I wonder how to determine how many people convert from certain religions. Like in Mount Mist, the conversion was 22 percentage units and three religions lost 4 percentage units and one lost 10. So yeah, why did one lose 10 and the others 4?
2011-05-31 [Veltzeh]: Proood.
2011-07-30 [Stephen]: I r confused. ;-;
