WARFARE: Sphere of Influence.
#25454

Genesis, the god of timeto Everyone

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

much developed.


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!
