    Virtually every territory on the map has native tribes - very little of Muria is completely uninhabited, at this point.

    But, for the most part, these tribes are too weak, too few and/or too disorganized to offer serious resistance to the expansive efforts of your cultures.

    Any NPC with an icon on the map, however, is a power in its own right, and subjugating them would require the 'Pursue conflict with...' order.

    All cultures advance. Most of the NPCs have player-set development paths, which Conan abides by. However, player cultures are somewhat advantaged over the NPCs - they develop faster and have higher base populations, for the most part. That's not to say that those initial conditions won't change, but players do have the advantage to start off with.

    Orders for turn 2 sent, eagerly awaiting the next update. :thumbsup:

    The 5 day turn limit is something I approve heartily of. It saves The Barbarian from unnecessary strain, not having to do writeups more than once a week. But I appreciate The Barbarians devotion to this experiment even more, seeing that he provided an excellent update in less time, when his disciples had sent in their orders before the deadline. :salute:

    Barbarian, you're a :bro: but don't burn out. Please let us know if you wish to wait the full 5 days before producing the next update even if all of us have already sent in the orders. This one understands. :salute:

    yes yes lets be postin' bout dem updates and how there is no pressure on our balls no pressure no pressure

    i dont believe in burnout
    or at least that it is preventable by taking it slow
    if Calliope is at your place right now riding your dick
    fucking use it as long as it lasts
    cause once you wake up and she is gone
    its gone
    you might check your wallet too
    she usually take 5 bucks for a cab

    Conan is working on a combat system, as that is quickly becoming pertinent to the game. There will be dice-rolls involved. The relevant players will be contacted shortly with some details.

    I really like reading these. Reminds me of games me and friends used to make when we were kids.

    Perhaps you could write some Muriad fan fiction :p



    @Barbarian: Can you cross over the smallest province joins, like those between 89 and 90?

    Hmm, Conan shouldn't have left that as a possibility, but the ship has now sailed, so he will say yes, the 89-90 'border' can be crossed.

    The Barbarian will post something fairly soon. The next update will be significant, as more reserve cultures join the fray, some wars are waged and Muria gains definition.

    You didn't really expect the 3 of us to be all peace and harmony up there did you?

    Must be rough for Ulm. He's got a pretty good chance of being the first guy to get added as a replacement player, but also has the best odds of being wiped out before he even gets to play, and the best odds of being wiped out immediately afterwards even if he does get to play.

    The barbarian said we could submit more than 1 NPC. If it looks like the mighty pirates of Jom are about to bite the bullet, I can always submit another to the queue. I'm thinking maxed military/warlike, right next to your now-exhausted empires :smug:

    Do you people know the feeling when you wake up and other people tell you the embarassing shit you did last night?

    Lets hope so. :like:

    Good. It would be a pity if I ran out of people to subjugate for many turns in a row.

    The orders were due five days from Friday, 2nd December.

    Conan will try to put together something a bit earlier than that, but certainly no later than Wednesday.
