Blood Horizon


Image



Upon the blasted wastes of the Gasping Dust, many men make their homes. Between the bones of the Old World and on the floor of a vanished sea, desperate cults and madcap scavengers strive to survive against the hostile environment and their foes, for no man has it easy in a land where the sky kindles with fire and the dawn draws moisture from a man like an oven. In this wild land the strong survive, and all strive to crown themselves masters of a dying world whose origin none now remember.

Drums beat, engines rev, and in the crazed eyes of the faithful every man is broken.


As a warlord in the unforgiving, sun-scorched wasteland you can have Provinces and Armies. A province generates income and give special abilities while armies win (or lose) battles but cost resources to maintain. To keep things simple there are only few kind of provinces and armies.
Now, here is what the game is really about: who is the ultimate warlord.

The goal of the game is to become as powerful and influential as possible - and survive. Over time, new challenges may face your realm, such as foreign invasions, plagues and religious unrest.

Technological and cultural development may stagger your faction back from the brink of extinction and barbarism, and new options for buildings may open up over time...

Time
...is divided into turns. Expect updates about every third or second day, which by default stands for a few months, though under select circumstances time may dilate as needed, such as during major political developments and wartime.

The world
...is divided into provinces. Each province counts as a single holding. Provinces come in several types and can be upgraded and modified in ways I shall soon explain. Buildings in a province do not counts as individual holdings. Armies can always get to the battlefields and it doesn't matter which holding is where.
This applies during trade as well. Any faction can buy or sell stuff with any other faction. This may change in the future if there is demand for more strategic gameplay.
The roleplay takes place in a fictional, sun-scorched wasteland akin to the one seen in the classic Fallout games or Mad Max: Fury Road. If you’d like to bring in elements from either franchise, a little is fine but it should have no effect on how the game is played.

Starting Stuff:
By default, all warlords have:
- A Rural Stronghold (a holding (or a province, you get to name it)).
- A Militia Battalion (an army).
- 5 Supplies (resources).

Hand limits:
A warlord can, by default, have up to 5 active provinces at the same time. Orivinces can be active or passive. Passive provinces don't count towards the hand limit but generate neither income nor expenses. You still own them regardless and you can switch provinces on and off at the start of every turn. Armies, on the other hand, always count as active and the only way to get rid of them is to disband them, sell them into the service of another warlord or spill their blood in the Gasping Dust.

Some buildings and development of culture and technology can increase hand limits. Buildings within provinces do not contribute towards hand limit, you can still raze 1 of your own buildings every turn if you see the need for it.


Money and Resources:
Supplies is the currency of the game while Scrap, Water, Fuel and Luxuries are other things of importance. Together, these things constitute resources. Resources are always gained at the start of turns and can be spent in the same turn you got them. There are more resources such as luxuries, stone for construction, and so on, but they are essentially "secondary" resources, and generally not nearly as valuable as the stuff of warfare or the water in your gut.


Army Training/disbanding:
All military units have a training and an upkeep cost, along with a building prerequisite and, possibly, training time. You have to pay all the training costs when creating the unit.

Units enter the game after turns equal to the training time has passed since the turn the costs were payed (If a unit has a training time of 2 turns and it was purchased in turn 1, it will enter the game on turn 3). Units have to receive their upkeep costs every turn or else be forced to disband.

When you disband a unit, you get back 100% of any scrap and fuel invested in their original construction. Each unit represents, on average, a few dozen hardy followers.


War:
The default length of a war is 0 turns. This means that a battle will take place at the end of the turn the war was declared. If an owner of a fortress takes part in a war, they can choose to make it last more turns. For instance, if the War length is 1 turn, then the battle will take place at the end of the turn after the turn war was declared in, hence allowing time for everyone to prepare. Powerful war machines can reduce war length, but war length cannot be lower then 0.

Battles are fairly straightforward. Upon the beginning of a battle, I will set the stage for the engagement, and then both sides may deploy their forces. All players may state their orders, which will be resolved in order of precedence based on a roll of chance. Casualties will be stated, and thus a winner declared depending on the course of the war. Battles may come to draws, if neither side gains a distinct advantage over the other.

There are several modifiers in battle. If a warlord with the appropriate trait leads one side or another's army, they may choose to fight at a different site of battle, or redeploy their forces after battle lines have been drawn. Additionally, if the side on which the war was declared on (AKA, the defender) has a fortress, then the battle may be conducted at the fortress if the defenders choose not to sally forth. Such defensive fortifications can have a large impact on the conduct of a battle.


Province type - What it's all about - What it can produce. All holdings except Wasteland can initially contain only three buildings.

Scablands – Hard days. Long nights. And salvation. Earns 1 Supplies and 1 Water every second turn.

Ruined Cityscape – The bones of the Old World, laid bare for all to see. Earns 1 Fuel OR 1 Luxuries every second turn.

Scorched Hills – There is life, even here, in this barren land. Earns 1 Scrap OR 1 Water every second turn.

Wasteland – Gasping dust and searing sunlight. No intrinsic value. Only 1 Building Slot.


Building types - What they cost to build - What they are good for.

Rural Stronghold (This is where it all begins, and most things end.)
– Costs 3 Supplies and 1 Scrap.
- Generates 2 Supplies per turn.
- Rural Strongholds have a garrison of 1 Militia and also allows for the following policy to be practiced:
Organize Explorers: Costs 2 Supplies per turn, reveals one province every third turn.

Fortress (Barbed wire, sniper’s nests and killing fields. In a world gone mad, this is as mad as it gets.)
- Costs 5 Supplies to be built on any land or costs 3 on a Rural Stronghold.
- Requires a Workshop in order to construct.
- Increases hand limit by 1, though this increase may not be used on other Fortresses. Each Fortress also allows its owner to increase war length by one turn, if he/she so desires. Fortresses also increase the holder's Army Size limit by one.
- Fortresses replace Rural Strongholds as a building, though not its income.
- Any unit which fights a defensive battle in this province receives +2 HP and +2 Strength.

Scavenger Camp (Where hard souls cull good metal from the wreck of the world.)
- Costs 3 Supplies and 1 Scrap. Only built on Ruined Cityscapes or Scorched Hills.

- Attract Specialists: Costs 1 Supply per turn, increases the faction's Culture, Science, or Faith rating by three.
- Organize Explorers: Costs 2 Supplies per turn, reveals one province every second turn.
- Hire Wise Men: Costs 1 Supplies per turn. Increases hand limit by 1.
- Purchase Luxuries: Costs 1 Supplies per turn. Unknown benefits.
- Let Water Flow: Costs 2 Supplies per turn. During this time, warlords will find very few willing to support any rebellion attempts.

Workshop (Here burn the fires of industry.)
- Costs 2 Supplies, 2 Scrap
- Allows for some basic industrial development, thus producing 1 Supplies per turn.
- Allows the construction of Debris Wall and Fortress. Max 1 Workshop per province. Civilian building.

- Needed for training units that use Scrap.
- When not busy making guns and explosives, the Forge can convert 1 Scrap into 1 Supplies, if there is a Workshop present in the province. Civilian building.

Dirt Roads (The Fury Road is wide, and leads everywhere.)
- Costs 1 Supplies, 1 Scrap

Military unit type - What it costs - Its strengths and abilities, training facilities needed, and maintenance costs.

Militia - 1 Supplies – 1 Strength, 1 HP
An unscrupulous rabble, as likely to run away as stand and fight. Still, good for stopping the occasional bullet. Needs no training facility. Costs 1 Supplies OR 1 Water per turn to maintain.

Raiders - 2 Supplies – 1 Strength, 1 HP
Unsavory sorts, but profitable when preying on the weak. Needs no training facility. Can pillage 1 building in a non-Fortress province belonging to a warlord of the opposing side during a battle, regardless of who wins. The pillaged building gives half its original build price to the pillaging warlord, and must be repaired for that same amount to be made operational again. Raiders do not automatically have their identity revealed to the attacked warlord ICly.
Costs 1 Supplies per turn to maintain.

Conscripts - 2 Supplies – 1 Strength, 2 HP
Weak line infantry. Fights well én masse, but light armor and poor discipline makes them at best a holding force. Needs a Barracks to train.
Costs 1 Supplies OR 1 Water per turn to maintain.

Fanatics – 1 Supplies, 1 Water – 2 Strength, 1 HP
Give them water or a taste of the Old World, and these men and women will kill for you. With spears, homemade guns and their own bare hands. Can only be trained if the Warlord has access to a Shrine.
Costs 1 Water OR 1 Luxuries per turn to maintain.

Warriors - 2 Supplies, 1 Scrap – 2 Strength, 2 HP
Sturdy fighters clad in homemade armor and wielding firearms with at least some skill, the Warrior is the mainstay of most forces. Needs a Barracks to train at AND a Forge to produce its weapons. Costs 1 Supplies OR 1 Water per turn to maintain.

Sharpshooters - 1 Supplies, 2 Scrap – 1 Strength, 1 HP
Killing an enemy from afar is a valuable skill. At the start of combat, there is a chance that a unit of Sharpshooters can kill a single 2 HP-unit. Needs a Barracks to train AND a Forge to produce its weapons.
Costs 1 Supplies per turn to maintain.

Outriders - 2 Supplies, 1 Scrap, 2 Fuel – 2 Strength , 2 HP
Modified bikes and open-topped buggies. While not exactly armored, their speed affords them great utility to any commander. Can move through two provinces each turn. Needs a Garage to produce.
Costs 1 Fuel per turn to maintain.

Veterans - 3 Supplies, 2 Scrap – 2 Strength, 4 HP
Professional killers. Their thick armor and deadly aim can break the charge of even the hardiest enemy, and affords them great resilience in combat. Requires a Barracks to train in AND a Forge to produce their weapons.
Costs 2 Supplies OR 2 Water per turn to maintain.

War Rig - 4 Supplies, 3 Fuel, 2 Scrap – 3 Strength, 6 HP
Faster than fear and tougher than a lizard’s gonads; the fury of a roaring engine can lay low lords and shatter formations. Can move through two provinces each turn. Needs a Barracks AND a Garage to oil its black, death-slick heart.
Costs 1 Fuel and 1 Luxuries each turn to maintain.

Tier 4: Code of Honor.

Tier 5: ???

Tier 6: ???

Tier 7: ???

Tier 8: ???


Science
”I see the past. I know the future.”

The more science generating things are in a faction, the further science progresses there. Science can spread to other factions as well. There are 8 tiers of science, the results for unlocking a new tier will not be always known in advance. Tiers are reached at twenty units.

Just tossing this out before heading to bed, I want to get in first on the insane tech cult.

Application
Warlord name: Tarquin Antonine
Warlord's appearance: Tarquin is an odd sort of thing, a huge figure, crafted of odd, mutated and tattered flesh. Plates of metal seem to have replaced much of his skin, and his left arm has been entirely replaced with a hand-crafted prosthetic, the pumping pistons of which may be seen by any viewer. He is overwhelmingly large, in shape, action and in voice, as his words seem to reverberate with the truth of metal, the raging bellow of pistons.
Starting province: Excla Tower, an old sky-scraper in a ruined scientific park. It's upper stories have collapsed, and the tower only reaches a height of twenty three stories, high enough to be visible all across the wastes. It is surrounded by a scrap rich hinterland of ruined buildings and abandoned laboratories. The Pistons dwell within the tower almost exclusively, and have heavily reinforced the thing. Snipers lean out of windows, and the majority of the floors are filled with communal engineering room-homes.
Warlord's character: Tarquin is a mastermind, a man with great skill in science, and specifically in mechanical engineering. He often boasts, in his booming great voice, that he is a Doctor. He is extraordinarily dedicated to his studies and to the advancement of technology, along with preaching the word of the machine to his people. Tarquin finds himself drawn to pieces of engineering, to the point of integrating them into his very flesh. Beyond this, he is a commanding and direct benevolent dictator, loved by the throngs of Pistons, his people.
Warlord's trait: Expert
Faction trait: Blackthumbs
Faction's short bio: The Excla tower, the greatest institute of engineering in the city, the home to it's foremost scientists before the war, and now the home to cargo cultists who try to figure out the inventions they have been left with. It was only natural for survivors to collect in this great tower, the tallest building of the city, in the hopes of survival, and fortunately for them, the rich resources of the fully equipped laboratories and engineering workshops allowed them to prosper. A smattering of factions ruled each few floors in separate gangs for many years, until Tarquin Antonine had a vision. He claims to have watched the light boxes in the top floor, and in doing so to have seen the will of the machine. His left eye is almost nonfunctional as a result of the scorching damage this incurred.

His vision found him hailed as a Prophet, and the young man lead his local tribe to integrate the machine into themselves, losing many in a process known as the purification. With his tribe purified, he wandered the tower as a prophet, converting the tribes to his faith and eventually taking complete command of the Excla. He then established dominion over the local area, and set to work. His newly christened army of "Pistons" began to integrate more and more machinery into themselves, with good deal surviving as a result of the medical technology of the Excla, and through generations of wild mutation. A few have been claimed by the Machine (Septicemia), but many yet survive, to bring purification into the world at large.

I have literally no confidence in my abilities to keep up with any sort of numbers on a turn-by-turn basis.

But I am willing to commit to a side character of some sort, if someone would like that sort of filler, or an arrangement that doesn't involve maths >__>

Application
Warlord name: Maerios, Lord of the Earth
Warlord's appearance: Maerios is a burly giant of a man, a towering juggernaught in a landscape where men are bones and skin from starvation. Slabs of hard muscle fill out a suit of thick black leather overtopped with metal plates, all under a hauberk of white and black that bears his symbol, a great gear, cut in obsidian ink. His hair is cut close about his head, a well-trimmed beard running up in to a thick mustache set below eyes of deep emerald. Both his hair and beard are midnight dark, though his skin would be fair if it was not leathered by the sun.
Starting province: Ironbones - Scorched Hills : Beneath the fire of the sky the Ironbones sit, craggy formations ravaged down to rock by decades of erosion and ferocious storms. Upon one of the foremost peaks of these jagged spines of stone sits the Nighthart Bastion, what was once a government complex before the end of everything that Maerios and the Maenads have taken for their own. It now towers over the landscape, looking down on bustling settlement where men and women scratch sustenance from terrace gardens shielded from the fury of nature by the rugged ridges of the Ironbones.
Warlord's character: A madman by most accounts, Maerios thinks himself divine, and so far has been proven correct. He has great affection for his followers, who he terms mortals, and is fond of feasting with them when he may. By his will were the Maenads gathered, as he sees it, and now they raise edifices in mimicry of the old world which he would forge anew in his image.
Warlord's trait: Builder
Faction trait: Buzzards
Faction's short bio: The cult of the Lord of the Earth, named the Maenads by those around them, consolidated about the warlord by many means. Some rode with him in his sojourning ere the discovery of the Ironbones, drawn to his tattered black banner by his prowess in battle and apparent divinity. Others were taken by his followers from less fulsome warriors, integrated in most cases willingly and occasionally by force in to the society of the Bastion. Others still have come drawn by the rumors of food to be had, and glory to be won in battle. From the blasted hills the Lord of the Earth will smith the world in his image, and let all beware!
Anything else: (Well?)

Warlord's trait: Builder
Faction trait: Buzzards
Faction's short bio: The cult of the Lord of the Earth, named the Maenads by those around them, consolidated about the warlord by many means. Some rode with him in his sojourning ere the discovery of the Ironbones, drawn to his tattered black banner by his prowess in battle and apparent divinity. Others were taken by his followers from less fulsome warriors, integrated in most cases willingly and occasionally by force in to the society of the Bastion. Others still have come drawn by the rumors of food to be had, and glory to be won in battle. From the blasted hills the Lord of the Earth will smith the world in his image, and let all beware!
Anything else: (Well?)


Welcome, G-Tech. You are awaited in Valhalla. Accepted.

Certainly. As long as you have the resources on hand - go for it.

By drum of hammer and hiss of quenched steel, I honor him!
TG if you have questions about RP. If I don't know the answer, I know someone who does.

Quite the unofficial fellow. P2TM Mentor specializing in faction and nation RPs, as well as RPGs.

But I am willing to commit to a side character of some sort, if someone would like that sort of filler, or an arrangement that doesn't involve maths >__>


By all means, Grim. I don't suppose letting you play a single character could do much harm. You lack of confidence aside, however - I don't seem to recall the Sri Arjuna of Kotte ever having any problems with bookkeeping. If you'd give it a go, I'm sure you'd manage a faction just fine.

Looking forward to seeing your app, Apple.

I'd give Fury Road a look as well if I were you. It's a great, rollicking roller coaster of a ride and well worth a watch.

Right. One more app and I'll chuck a map up and start the IC.

I don't want to watch any more movies anytime soon. As long as you're not planning on throwing in characters from Fury Road, I'm good.

Are the militia just for warfare, as opposed to settling in this?

Solely for warfare. If settling a province is on your mind, I recommend a Rural Stronghold.

Alright, app is coming up. I just need to think of a tough-sounding name.
