Many of you will know, whether or not directly involved in the training
and deployment of city defences, that the continent is roughly divided
up into spheres of influence. Each city spreads its influence from
its city gates, encompassing villages, towns, forests, etc. The various
spheres bring gold into the coffers of the cities. This is shortly to be
HELP SPHERE contains all the info you will need for the updated spheres
of influence system. Essentially it is as before, but now a town or village
can be passively or actively occupied, tributes demanded, so the
value to a city in gold, commodities, enlistable men is MUCH higher
than previously. This makes the possession of a town or village very
significant. It rewards the daring. Greater tribute can be exacted by
occupying with legions rather than simply leaving one's flags flying
over the village's soil. All is explained in the helpfile.
Three new informative commands are available to all: AFFAIRS to tell
you about the land's spheres of influence and tributes, OCCUPATION
when on town/village soil to inform you of the key locations therein and
their state, and TRIBUTES to list your homeland's sphere of influence
and the specific tributes demanded, along with military presence
on your occupied territory.
THIS SYSTEM WILL GO FULLY LIVE ON THE 1ST OF MOURNSEND 1261: AT THE
END OF THIS AVALON MONTH. GET READY!
