    Champa Kingdoms Ruler: King Jaya Harivarman I Population: 76,582 Military: Hidden Navy: Hidden Trade: Trade within the Champa Kingdoms is flourishing, their dominion over the Asian Trade Route gives them full dominion of the Asian spice and silk trade gaining a fifty fifty shared dominion over Ivory together with the Arabian peninsula. Local medicine is highly sought after by both India and China alike, the viet jungle filled with rare herbs only harvestable in the region. Culture: The Champa Kingdoms is a mercantile yet warring nation, their local population mostly gaining their profits from raiding and pirating off of nearby islands and trade ships passing by attempting to make it to China. These ships are only left alone if a tax is paid to the crown, King Jaya Harivarman I. This raiding culture has made the population quite adept at combat, making them overall more combat ready compared to the would be peasants or farmers. This has put the Champas in a highly profitable situation, their richest one of the highest in the region and with the lack of population to participate most people live satisfying lives. Religion: The Champa Kingdoms has a long standing Hinduistic tradition and culture, some sharing in the chinese beliefs but being a large minority comparably. End of 1102 AD Actions Indra Yurman sets up wargames between the first order of the army and the second order of the army to scope out how well the training of the second order has gone. This will hopefully also make the men more used to an actual field of combat, having at least participated in something similar through this experience. The remaining 2000 men from the first order will be sent to the Lion’s Capital to do a march for the winter celebrations. [Mod] In the Lion’s Capital the great shipyard continues making large ships for the navy. [Mod] Uhnra An sends a few envoys to the mines construction sites and checks up on the progress. [Mod] Jaya Harivarman I awaits the return of the elephant trainers, hunters and tamers to see how many elephants they were able to capture. If they were unable to capture the twenty elephants as ordered, Jaya would tell them to return to the wild to capture more until the number is met. [Mod] Jaya Harivarman I awaits the return of the ships he sent to the neighbouring islands and sends men to prepare counting how many people were convinced to move to Champa, now that his promise has been proven to be true. [Mod] The Court Wordsmiths and Tutors continues training the Luzon Princess and Princesses, sending information to Jaya as to their progress and the overall reaction of the foreign royals. [Mod] Secret Actions are started and old secret actions continues.

      Maybe because it reflects badly on you if your posts essentially boils down to something a 11y old would say to try and look cool?

Beginning of 1102 AD Uhnra An the Minister of Construction continues to order the men to make huts at the outskirts of the Lion’s Capital, their pacing still the same to make sure each hut has enough parcel of fertile land to toil. [Mod] The three thousand new recruits are drilled and disciplined by the professional troops, trained in various weapons and movements. Their training continues as the troops must be polished by the vestiges of time. Their heavy armour training continues with excellence. [Mod] Indra Yurman oversees the troops, both professional and untrained in an effort to boost their abilities at a more steady pace as he enlightens them with his experience. He continues to commit time to special training where the new recruits are taught how to build fortifications, these wooden fortifications if built proper able to stand up against assaults and siege equipment for quite some time.

[Mod] Jaya Harivarman I orders the recently constructed deep shipyard of the Lion’s Capital to construct large junks based on the newly acquired design from The Song Dynasty. [Mod] Jaya Harivarman I orders Uhnra An the Minister of Construction to oversee a new project, sending him and any manpower he’d need to the mountains near the Lion’s Capital. There they are to make at least five mines, two to procure gold and three to procure iron. [Mod] Jaya Harivarman I awaits the return of the surveyors who was sent to count the countries tribal population. [Mod] Jaya Harivarman I prepares the education for the princes and princesses of Luzon and makes certain that they have access to luxuries and assign court wordsmiths, guides and tutors to each individually. This is in an effort to make them addicted to the much more advanced society, civilization, living conditions and luxuries that Champa has to offer in comparison to Luzon. The word smiths are instructed to show them a lot of the unique things that Champa has to offer and in subtle ways paint Champa in a powerful light, their first classes will be about Champanese Royal History which relates to their own where they will be told how the royal dynasty is the true inheritors of the Borneo people. Telling them of legendary rulers of the past and how once their people was united and strong, able to stand up against even the greatest powers. [Mod] Jaya Harivarman I hires the greatest elephant hunters in the realm and sends with them the elephant tamers and trainers which arrived from Chola, they are ordered to capture twenty elephants by the end of the year and set breeding into motion on the finished elephant farm. The trainers and tamers from Chola are told that whatever manpower and resources they need will be provided for and that they are simply to send heed to the king as for their needs in the program. [Mod] Trade Ships and Agar Longboats are sent out to the local islands for another run, a few men who already settled in Champa are brought onto the boats going towards the area they came from to have them tell the others that the claims of free land and housing is in fact true. That the Champanese Ruler has held to his promise to the people of the islands. The few word smiths sent on the boats also tell the people how Jaya Harivarman wishes to unite the Borneo peoples and have them hark in yet another Empire. [Mod] Secret action from previous turn continues, new secret actions are started. [Mod]

    LotC 6.2: *notices minas pouch* owo what's this?

    @Sporadic The problems aren't the same for every trader and people don't really operate on the predator and prey basis in games, it's scientifically proven for example that if someone loses more than 33% of the time they'll be 80% likely to give up and never participate in the game again. The same is true here, you will get traders from the faction that is taking control of the route and their allies and those people will keep trading. Then you have people from the other groups that either have no connection or are enemies with them, we're all aware that one faction is always vastly stronger to the other on LoTC most of the time and this is true for the current time as well. Thusly any would be enemies or neutrals would be killed and removed from that part of the system entirely, after having lost several times they'll simply give up and no longer participate. Will you still see trafick? Of course you will but it won't be the amount of trafick you'd have gotten otherwise, I don't fear fighting people or losing material gains all i'm saying is that by having two points you nourish a much healthier environment. The RP will matter a lot more than just having more men and taking over the point by simply having more men, you'd have to split up your troops and you can't keep your eyes on the entire trade route at all times. It leaves it open to other bandit groups and military factions to fight as well. Small skirmishes will take place as fighting the enemy won't net as heavy losses as when they are unified and traders are willing to take risks as the chances of being butchered even if you're an enemy of the main alliance aren't guaranteed. I still highly advice that two routes are made available, have them rotate if you want but two routes will definately make the trade gain more interest and more participants. Right now the other factions have to wait until the dominant faction doesn't want to trade anymore and then trade, sometimes that isn't even possible as said people just keep going all day. I have made the comparison before but right now the trading system is like a golden goose and we all know how that story ends.
  8. @Sporadic Are the Minotaur trophies not up yet or is there another reason why they aren't present on the trophy list? Also i'd like to thank you for all the hard work you and your team does, I quite enjoy a lot of the updates and even though I don't agree with all the changes a lot of these changes are a welcoming sight for certain.

      @Sporadic I think you forgot to add the bogbeast tongue, unless that was removed from the equation I haven't hunted them for quite a while so I suppose that could be possible. Thought i'd give you a headsup just incase.

  9. JuliusAakerlund

    LotC 6.2: *notices minas pouch* owo what's this?

    @Sporadicwe still need more than one trade route active at a time so a nation can't monopolize it if they so wished, right now if a single nation wants to they can hold the trade route down by themselves as long as they are strong enough. I get the idea of rotating the routes but id doesn't solve this massive problem, even though the route has calmed down from its initial employment. I presume the main reason for not adding more than one active route at a time is to keep RP activity up on the route as it is a tool to centralize RP, however I don't see how adding another one will do anything but incentivise RP even further as more people can participate. I know for a fact a lot of groups have to stay away from the trade routes because their enemies are camping them, my group included and going there would only be a death trap for us and thusly not only cutting us off from making any money from it but even participating in the RP. There is a point to be made I suppose that camping will happen no matter what and that much is fine, getting killed on the trade route will happen either way and that's a part of the experience but when there is only one trade route it makes it entirely impossible to trade at all without getting killed. I still suggest a second active trade route is put in place as stated and if you don't wish to do so, i'd like to hear the reasoning behind it.
