Long ago, the Zahvenat archipelago, more commonly known as the "Butterfly Isles" was a peaceful place, governed by the Myskshen Empire that lords over the continent.
200 years ago, an incident in the great city of Kuthgirt caused the Isles to hurl not just themselves, but the whole Empire into a seemingly endless civil war.

Now that peace has returned to the Empire, only the Isles remain fractured, and are seeing the rise of great men capable of reuniting them. At the same time, an Imperial Reclamation Force has been dispatched to bring the Isles and their inhabitants back into the fold.
Will they succeed in doing so? will the Isles retain their newfound independence? or will it cause the Empire to fall for good?

The stage is set for the bloodiest chapter of the Butterfly Wars

I will not explain the details of the game right out the gate, because that shit is a lot
so, I'll just tell you about it as it becomes relevant
I'm confident qst anons are smart enough to intuit the basics of a turn-based strategy

for starters, I need y'all to pick a character with which to play

This is NOT a multiplayer game, anons will all play as the same faction, so make it count
all relevant information is on this lovely character selection screen

if you have any questions so far, I will try my best to answer them in clear and simple terms

>Barreanoba
The bonus and the conditions appeal to me, also he has a respectable tax policy.

>>6006959
I'm torn between Supreme Leader Greg and General Herbert Gustavus Antonius Septimus Von Obdemach-Tropstein, but I'm going to have to vote for
>Supreme Leader Greg
Both because +5 attack is an insanely good bonus and every other faction is going to want our head. Managing total war with almost the entirety of the island while our economy is going to shit will make for a fun, potentially !!FUN!! quest. Fred the Fat is a distant third because he's based, but his bonus isn't as huge.

Every life has a worth; every action a purpose; and every name a meaning
Barreanoba - Battle Lover - a name once bestowed upon a sickly child, destined to rejoin his ancestors in the eternal flame before his life has ever truly begun.
A name that was given with hope, and a wish, to see this child defy destiny, to grab hold of life and never let go, will soon be carved into every man's living memory, a name that will forever be remembered as synonymous with conquest, glory and unbridled genius.

You are Barreanoba, Chief of the Xerbol tribe
long have your people lived simple and primitive lives, hidden away from civilization amidst a volcanic wasteland, and shielded from would-be conquerors by a land so hazardous, its very name - The Steam Forest - invokes images of torturous pain.

To truly begin your conquest, you must first unite your people, so that you may claim Kingship over all of Fire-elvendom.
Conquer the cities of Paalun, Bolzaun, Deque and Garxun from our rival tribes; let none stand alone in our struggle for conquest and eternal glory!

Our tribe has assembled for you 5 of our best Barbarians

To move our units select a target on the map and a d100 shall be rolled for you to determine how much of that distance may be covered during our turn.

I didn't intend for you all having to roll, I was actually gonna do it for you, but if that's what you want do going forward, I can make that work.

Our army has reached the outskirts of Garxun, though we are exhausted from the trip and cannot attack the city as of yet.
We have however gained sight of the Garx Tribe's army, a small but powerful force of 1 Warrior

Warriors are our people's equivalent to a Soldier unit
They, like the Soldier they replace, have a base strength of 10
Meanwhile, our Barbarians and their generic equivalent of Conscripts have a base strength of 5
Casualties are to be expected

Our turn ends and news of foreigners conquering foreign cities reach us, but we do not know them, so we do not care to tell you more. Please forgive us this oversight, my lord.

What will you do next?

>I didn't intend for you all having to roll, I was actually gonna do it for you, but if that's what you want do going forward, I can make that work.
you should've warned first my dude, the default is anons rolling. I don't mind you rolling though, if others want it.

attack the city this turn

in my defense, I did specifically say "a d100 shall be rolled FOR you" as in, you don't have to

it works either way for me tho, whatever makes the game fun

>>6009773
We ask them to surrender themselves and if we can, cut off any routes to and from Garxun.

Send the Garx tribe an ultimatum to stand down and accept voluntary union with our realm. We would rather obtain bloodless compliance, and doubtless they would rather retain their lives and some measure of autonomy, and they must see how our army outnumbers theirs.

If they refuse, however, we prepare to fall upon their tribe.

>>6009780
I just saw others were rolling, so I rolled. My apologies

>>6009776
Our men are in position to attack the city, but rather than assault it immediately, you have chosen to be magnanimous today and offer them surrender.
Or it may just be an attempt to conserve manpower, after all, people do not grow on trees. Whatever the case may be, your ultimatum toward the Garx tribe stands - Surrender or be Annihilated.

Without an agent in your employ to convince them however, it may be difficult to take the city peacefully.
Nevertheless, you are free to try, my liege.

You have a total of 5 attempts to make the city surrender
Each attempts requires that you roll a d20
should you roll a nat20, you succeed
should you fail however, no siege phase will be given, and you engage the defenders with a -5 penalty to your attack power.

Will you proceed with this action?
or will you engage in a siege instead?

because you're still in the tutorial, I'll count it, but don't expect me to do this again

The Garx Tribe, in the face of our sheer numbers, have surrendered peacefully and their warriors have laid down their weapons.
Garxun now belongs to us, and with it its blacksmith.

Blacksmiths are an important industry for both trade and warfare.
Cities that are home to a blacksmith generate more income than others and enable the recruitment of higher-tier units.
You may now recruit Warriors in all your cities, though you still lack the resourcesto do so.
Some units may also only be recruited by the cities that have a blacksmith.

With this, our turn ends and other nations proceed to do things, that we regretfully failed to inform you about once again.

What will you do next?

>>6010777
What sort of resource did Xerbolun start with? Looks like a representation of a metal of some kind...

Anyway, I'd say we march on and secure Paalun, because if our starting metal isn't the right choice, perhaps Paalun's metal will be?
>>
>>6010777
I say we fix this problem of us lacking agents. How do we do that?
>>6010787
It looks like Paalun is more of a quarry resource to me based on the square shape with the hammer. Also bolzalun to our east looks to have gold.
>>
>>6010787
and you would be right, xerbolun produces iron
>>6010798
you'll unlock agents by conquering another one of your mission's cities
paalun does indeed have a quarry, and it produces stone
and yes, bolzaun does have gold, which you will also need to unlock something

if you'd like a suggestion deque is a great second city to conquer, it produces timber.
>>
>>6010787

Ah, so we have the right metal, we were just lacking fuel for the forge?
Then, yes, Deque is probably where we want to go next.

Traversing the steam forest is slow and arduous, even for our people. Between dodging sudden geyser eruptions, trees bursting into flame to reveal newly formed lava creeks, and rain evaporating into clouds of steam blocking all sight, it is a miracle that races not adapted to this hellscape come to trade with our tribes as often as they do.
Despite the obstructions, our army has managed to make it halfway to its destination.

While our army has nothing to do, it would be wise of my liege to consider the finances of the realm. While we have not bothered you with such trifling matters as of yet, it is undeniable that the court cannot stem this tide alone, we require your lordship's oversight on the matter, to see the bigger picture that we cannot fathom.

Our tribe manages to scrape together 20 taha worth of income every month, regardless of all other circumstances.
6 taha worth of taxes from Garxun
14 taha worth of taxes from Xerbolun
and 0 taha from trade

Our army expenditures come to 3 taha every month.

Since the beginning of your reign, the treasury has accumulated 102 taha for you to recruit units with.

Be advised however, that only so much manpower can be accessed every turn, therefore the realm cannot recruit more than 5 units per city, per turn
of course your lordship may recruit more than 5 units across his realm in a turn, just not from the same city.

Would you like to try doing so while our army rests?
>>
>>6011044
How many taha per unit?

>>6011049
a Barbarian comes out to 5 taha each and requires no additional resources

a Warrior comes out to 20 taha and 1 timber each

>>6011050

I’m assuming we have no timber, so let’s recruit 2 barbarian units in Xerbolun & the same thing in Garxun for now.

With the forest calm for the time being our men have made good progress on their way to Deque and reached the city, ready for a siege, with a lot of energy to spare.

How much you can stress an army, while changing from turn to turn, is easily visible above every individual army in the form of two blue numbers.
The top number represents the amount of movement your army has left in them before being forced to stand still.
The bottom number represents the amount of actions that can be taken by your army before it is forced to rest, regardless of how many movement points remain.
Any action your army takes, excepting the locked-in movement of a previous turn, will subtract from this number.

When no unit in the field has any actions left to commit, your turn ends automatically.

You have attacked the city Deque and entered a siege phase.

Siege phases are casualty-less battles preceding city assaults, the outcome of which can drastically alter the power balance between attacker and defender.

Attackers and Defenders each roll 1 d20 equal to the number of defenders, up to a maximum of 5
each dice roll is compared to its equivalent, rolling higher than the other side grants 1 score
for every score that one side has over the other, their corresponding statistic (attack for attackers, defense for defenders) increases by 1 for the duration of the battle
should either side roll a nat20, the siege phase ends immediately and the maximum bonus of +5 is applied to the side who got it first
should either side roll a nat1, the siege phase ends immediately and a penalty of -5 is applied to the side who got it first

Deque holds 2 Barbarians meaning, that you will roll 2 d20, against their 2 d20 (rolled by me)

following the Siege Phase, a regular battle with ensue without taking up an additional action point.
>>
Rolled 4, 14 = 18 (2d20)

>>6011332
Shit, they rolled good
>>
>>6011362
With two consecutive victories and no losses, the defenders of Deque go into this battle with +2 defense

In combat, Attackers and Defenders each roll 1 d20 equal to the number to their units with no upper limit.
Every unit adds their base-power to the result of the roll, followed by their attack modifier if they're attacking, and their defense modifier if they're defending
A battle is over if at least 60% of the attacking units (rounded down) are victorious
or if at least 60% of the defending units (rounded up) are victorious
If either side outnumbers the other by more than 3/5 while fielding the same unit composition, battles can be resolved automatically without the need to roll, taking the maximum amount of casualties for a guaranteed victory.
Units of higher tiers are not affected by the outnumbering mechanic of lower tiered units, and may engage such enemies as often as they like as long as they remain undefeated.

The defenders of Deque are eligible to be overrun in auto-combat, would you like to proceed or do you wish to roll instead?
>>
Just to make sure there are no misunderstandings

auto-combat can only happen if it is mechanically impossible for you to lose
you WILL win every time the option pops up
rolling in spite of that is just to determine whether some extra units of yours get to live
>>
>>6011745
I say we auto this. The dice have been fucking us since the beginning.
we can also replace our losses with the higher tier units that the wood would allow us.

>>6011745

Deque is overrun
2 enemy Barbarians have perished, alongside yours.

--------------------------------------------------------------
Timber, like Iron, Slaves, Food, Stone and Glass, provides a special income separate from taxation, called a stockpile.
Every instance of a resource provides +5 to its corresponding stockpile per turn, up to a base-maximum of 100
Stockpiles of some sort are required for the vast majority of units, but is also valuable for trade with other nations.
Should you ever enter into a trade-agreement, you may also set a minimum amount of non-tradeable stockpile, at any time, which will never be traded out to foreign nations, so as to not run into shortages for our own army.
--------------------------------------------------------------
Timber is a commonly required resource for any ship as well as mages.
Though our people do not employ mages, timber is nonetheless important for our armies.
With agents now available to you, you may recruit Generals in every city with a Castle, our people's equivalent to Mages.
Currently the only city with such a feature is Xerbolun, but others may be captured later-on.

Be aware that Agents cost significantly more upkeep than normal units.

Does Barreanoba count as a General/Mage for our starting unit-stack? If so, we should be fine; if not it's probably worth getting one, and sending them to Garxan so they can meet up with the rest of our forces sooner.

Then, with >>6011861; recruit 4 warriors in Garxun/Deque to meet up for marching on Paalun.
>>
>>6011868
your leaders aren't playable units
if they were, they'd have to be killable, so I'd need replacement leaders

aside from the fact that a turn hasn't passed yet for you to get any timber, recruitment also takes a whole turn (or more)

you currently do not have the money to hire a General.
They cost 180 taha and 2 iron stockpile.
While you have 117 taha and 20 iron stockpile
That one is on me for not telling you the price earlier, I just didn't think you'd try hiring one immediately.
I'll remedy this for the next units you unlock.

After an eventful month, we have decided to brief his lordship on an abbreviated version of our economy, every turn, to more accurately determine our people's needs.

Should my liege require explanation, feel free to ask, such is the council's purpose after all.

While we still require the cities of Paalun and Bolzaun to be captured, it is our belief that you are capable of making the decisions to get there on your own.

Your new recruits have successfully merged with the army stationed in Deque
Though the composition of your army is equal parts Barbarians and Warriors the latter take precedence over the former, when depicting units in the field, because they are greater in rank. This precedence due to rank only occurs if at least 2/5 of an army is composed of higher units.
Be careful when engaging armies you do not know the composition of, as they may be concealing an elite force behind a facade of cannon fodder.

Your lordship's idleness last month has not gone by unnoticed. We would like to inform you, that my liege may take a great number of actions during turns.
He is only restricted by the fatigue of his armies, and the resources at hand.

With that out of the way, what would you like to do now?

The Pyromancer has arrived begins his attack on the city and initiating a siege phase, just as fresh warriors have been trained.

As the defenders, you may make your roll first.

Pyromancers are powerful agents, and our people's equivalent of a Wizard. Unlike the Wizard they replace, Pyromancers do not operate covertly, they deal in mass destruction.
Their [bold]MAGICAL ASSAULT[/bold] ability lets them attack entire armies, as though they were equal in number, with no risk to their own life.
In addition to this, their ability to [bold]BURN CITIES[/bold] allows them to completely shut down all functions of a city, including income and resource generation, for 5 turns.
Like any other Wizard however they are weak to direct attacks and can easily be overrun by even the lowest of units, as they lack any defensive mechanics aside from their basic defense roll. But even in melee they still boast a base power of 15, and should not be engaged by singular stray units.

Unlike other Wizard units, the Pyromancer cannot be recruited in castle cities, but only in towns with goldmines.
300 taha are required to employ such a unit, a steep upscale from a regular wizard.

Your army of 3 Warriors has successfully made it to Bolzaun within the month, and still has time and energy left to do more before the end of our turn.

As they set up camp near the city for a coming siege, they find the city eerily quiet.
Upon further inspection it turns out that the city is devoid of defenders.
If we were to attack it now, undefended as it is, there is nothing the Bolza Tribe could do about it.

What would you like to do now?

You split your army and occupy Bolzaun with the newly split off unit.

Splitting armies evenly distributes the remaining movement and action points of the initial army across all new armies.
In case of uneven results, favor is given to armies engaged in an action, as well as younger armies.

With your capture of Bolzaun, you have acquired a Goldmine
Goldmines produce the most Taha out of any other resource, but do not provide anything else and do not affect trade income.
Goldmines are hotly contested and must be well-garrisoned if one wishes to keep them.
Some units can only be trained in Goldmine cities, among them our nation's signature Pyromancer, which have now been unlocked along with Conquerors

Conquerors are the highest tier of land unit and are our equivalent to Knights at a base power of 15.
Unlike the Knight they replace, Conquerors require no horses or iron, but instead 3 timber, 3 food, and 1 stone, on top of their 60 taha base cost.

If a nation does not have the resources it needs at hand, they may still recruit units that require them for quadruple the taha
You may also import the resources from a trade partner, reducing the deficiency cost to just double the taha
If your trade partner is also an ally, this is further reduced to just its base cost.

Note that you cannot import what your trade partner does not have, and may still end up paying quadruple the price.

If a deficiency occurs while recruiting, it will be made known to your lordship.

Is there anything else you'd like to do?
(you can end your turn at any time)
>>
>>6020576
>end turn
about the paying more for a unit in case of lacking resource, does it get worse the more there are missing and how much ? e.g.: base lacking is 4x the base cost, so a unit who needs 2 resources and lacks both would cost 16x more ?
>>
>>6020584
just a flat x4 modifier regardless of which resource or how many thereof you lack
it becomes unpayable otherwise
>>
>>6020576
Well, since no trap was sprung...
>Move the other two Warriors into Bolzaun to serve as garrison forces in this valuable Gold-producing area.
>Build two Warriors in Garxun and one in Paalun so that each city has at least a token garrison; we just saw how easily an undefended city falls.

With our people united at last, we can focus our efforts on diplomacy
not that his majesty thinks it necessary, for his ambitions know no bounds.
But regardless, to ease his conquest, we have made efforts to contact the other nations on his behalf, to let them know of our new found unity and willingness to - temporarily - work together.

Based on the answers we have received, we have constructed a diplomatic profile of our immediate neighbors. We hope his majesty finds use for it.

Ghost Kingdom
Status: Neutral, desires Garxun
Relationship: None
Attitude: Diplomatic
Honor: Extreme

Kingdom of Aljulkun
Status: Friendly
Relationship: None
Attitude: Belligerent
Honor: Sufficient

Pekquyl Republic

Relationship: None
Attitude: Belligerent
Honor: None

Peasant's Republic
Status: Hostile, desires Bolzaun
Relationship: at War
Attitude: Belligerent
Honor: Sufficient

to make contact with someone other than our neighbors, a unit must be in the vicinity of their cities

If his majesty wishes, we may also provide strategically important missions to him
Objective: Conquer Eteguth
Time: 3 turns
Reward: 20 timber
There is no penalty to ignoring our strategic advice, high highness may do as he pleases.

Now, what would you like to do?

Fred the Fat stated 'My Kingdom for a whiff of Elfussy'. I'm sure we can find one of our elven followers dedicated enough to our cause to make him this offer. If we can get the Kingdom of Aljulkun in a trade or Fred as an enthusiastic vassal running vassal state/client kingdom it'd be immensely time-saving for our world conquest plans.

alright, with no other decision made...
You make your way to Aljulkun to discuss diplomacy with Fred the Fat
From afar, you notice city is fortified with naught but batteries upon batteries, and the odd soldiers operating them.
Inside, you witness titanic foundries, casting multiple culverins, mortars, and naval guns at a time.
You behold the castle, an enormous tower that can be likened to a tree in both its shape and presence. Indeed it seems so imposing, that one is liable to believe it wholly impenetrable to even the largest cannon.
The scenery inside the castle is however wildly different from the rest of this veritable fortress of a city.
Whereas as the outside is dominated by laborers, slaves, and soldiers, the inside is reminiscent of the imperial palace.
If one had never seen the heart of the Empire, it would be right to assume this castle to be the most lavishly furnished thing in the world - the truest expression of opulence.
Unlike the outside however, there seems to be sparsely any humans around, save for the soldiers.
Indeed, every servant roaming these halls is an ash elven woman.
The one exception you locate, is right there in front of you in the throneroom, where this lord's queen ought to be.
A disheveled, dirty, human woman, fidgeting around with various gadgets and guns, her eyes full of gleeful joy as she talks about them to her king, who reciprocates this enthusiasm seemingly in earnest, without the same lustful gaze he gives his servants.

Having seen enough, you make your presence known and introduce yourself.
He proceeds to do the same...

"I am Frederick VIII fym Rudbird, King of Aljulkun, Duke of Reimalk, and 28th Prince of the Empire; welcome to my domain!
Say, what brings you here today?

>>6022661
trade is unilateral and cannot be (directly) controlled
so if you want to trade with him, both of you get access to whatever the other has in surplus

You state your intent to King Fred in a bold and manly fashion the likes of which flusters the young human.
After a good laugh at his expense, you commend him on his excellent taste in women - something he seems to not hear very often - and offer him a few of yours to sweeten the deal.

With this, a trade deal has been struck between the Fire Kingdom and Aljulkun

Your relationship with them has changed from None to Trading

Trade is an enormous source of wealth and can wildly vary between turns.
Trade income depends on many factors, such as the size of your realm, its diversity of resources, and foreign demand for your resources.

Due to its complexity, your majesty will not be notified of the specifics, and only given the final result of taha generated each turn.

With this business concluded, you return home

You travel west across the Thylegirt Desert, and seeing the mighty Malka river that splits it in two.
Along the way, you see countless skeletons aimless wandering around, some of them being herded by armed skeletons toward the north-west, where you are headed as well.
Travelling along the flocks of skeletons, ruins start popping up occasionally, and increasing in number the further you go, until eventually you stand before ancient architecture the likes of which neither you, nor anyone else has ever seen.
Buildings made of shining white stone, glistening in the sunlight and reflecting one's image back at them just as distorted and broken as the ruins themselves.
Eventually a skeleton, who appears too well-decorated to be a mere soldier, finds and escorts you to the center of this ancient and alien city, where a throne stands amidst the remnants of a once mighty lighthouse, adorned with ancient, barely visible icons of what is clearly a sun god, but is not Garx, a peculiar detail...

Shortly upon your arrival, a skeleton, slightly shorter than the others, lumbers toward this throne, covered from head to toe in a blue armor, carrying a longsword, a scimitar, a shield and a javelin.
It pays neither you, nor the skeleton beside you, any mind as it seats itself lethargically on the throne.

With big metallic clank, the skeleton now sits before you, his empty eye sockets focused squarely on you.

"I am he who they call the Ghost King. Seeing your kind here is a surprise, but not unexpected. Pray tell, mortal, how can I help you?"

the undead's unnaturally deep voice booms with a terrifying dread, but in his tone there is the gentleness of a wise king.

Difficult it may be to read the face of a skeleton, he does seem rather amused by your attitude.

Negotiations were short and decisive, the Ghost King is willing to trade with your realm and will set up all that is required for merchants to pass safely through the desert.
