[Small World] The Final Act.

smallworld.jpeg

What the?
Small World is a game of territory domination with an emphasis of strategic thinking over random dice rolls. Each player will be able to select from a number of randomly generated races which combine the race's abilitites with a special power to generate combinations ranging between ho-hum and outstandingly powerful. However, you have to decide when to abandon your current race in favor of a new one as the original lacks the power to expand or outlives its usefulness.

How do I join?
I'll be accepting invitations in this thread until midnight PST 25 Oct 2009. From those, I'll randomly select 4 people to join. Since there is no hidden information in the game, I'll be taking the fifth slot. Make your posts colorful and bolded so I can more easily pick them out.

Guidelines for playing:
The initial race/special power stack will be randomized. There will be tables listing all the race/abilities and dice rolls on invisible castle will determine which one appears next. I'll handle generating the first six. Whenever a player selects a new active race from the stack, it is their responsibility to generate a new race. Discarded powers/races will be put into new stacks with a fixed order in case we run through the random ones.

Players can make their own rolls for final conquests/berserk (roll 1d6, 4,5,6 = 0) and are responsible for reposting the game summary with their additions/alterations. Post how many points you earned for your turn, but keep the total to yourself. At the end of the game, we'll reveal how many points we've earned. There is no way to stop it, but it is against the spirit (and rules) of the game to keep a running total of other players' points.

To keep the game flowing faster, each retreating unit from conquered regions will go to the region with the least defense that does not contain an immunity token like the dragon, hero, or halfling hole. Water regions are considered immune as well. Multiple retreating units will each check for whatever is lowest at the time they are placed.

19. Underworld (5) You may conquer regions with caverns at -1 units. All regions with Caverns are considered adjacent.
20. Wealthy (4) Collect 7 extra coins at the end of your first turn active.

I'll draw up a map identical to the 5 player map and name each region for easier identification when posting. Updating an actual image would require a lot more effort and require more downtime between turns.

    Well, I just finished working on the map. However, when I was double checking it, I realized I just made the 4 player map. :lol:
    small%20world%20basic%204.PNG

    I'll decide when I get back which of the following will happen: we play 4 players (least likely), we play five people on the four player map (hmm), take the time to make the 5 player map, or add the 2 player map onto the side of it and go for six players.

    Reserve up; I own and have played the game, so I'd like to let others play first.

    If there's enough interest, I can fire up a second thread to run another game alongside/after this one. I meant to do this a while back but never sat down to do the maps for it. (<3 Valkun)

    If I might make a small suggestion, switch the colors for marshes and mountains so that mountains are gray and marshes are olive. I can't really speak for others, but personally, those colors are much closer to what I associate with those terrain features in terms of base colors.

    There are other nit-picky things I could say, but I suppose it mostly comes down to personal preference. (My design philosophy would end up with a rather different-looking map, I'd guess.) The choice of feature icons are rather interesting, I must say.

    EDIT: Also, Lost Tribe icons, perhaps they should be on the map or something?

    Excuse me for my confusion, but why not have lost tribes icons on the board? I mean, if you're going to be marking the map up with player information and racial holdings, then lost tribe information should be there as well. Or am I misunderstanding things, and you will not be using the actual map to display game information as it progresses?

    The responsibility for running the game will be shared by all players. It is, essentially, a GMless PBP game. While actually keeping an updated map is easier to understand at a glance, each player cannot easily alter it on their own turn.

    Edit: Of course invisible castle is down now. I'll just go ahead and draw randomly.

    I see. But a host could certainly update the map on his own whenever convenient. I dunno, it just kind of seems like a waste to make a map but not utilize its potential more. In addition, if you're going to make a map that's just there for geographic reference, then there's probably not a need to make it so large. With that kind of size and space... there's kind of an expectation that it will be used.

    I don't mean to criticize, I'm just confused. I've just got a different mindset about these things, yeah?

    Working on my choices right now.

    Also, I might end up keeping a semi-updated image for this; it would certainly help me keep a handle on events. No promises, though, as the image would be mostly just to help me visualize this shit.

    And am I missing something, or is there a mistake in the description of the "pillaging" power? The rulebook says "non-empty", but the power description says "unoccupied".

    I'm currently editing the post with some ideas I have for streamlining things and making the action easier to follow. Don't worry about it, I'm not editing my actions at all.

    Looks good to me, Gandalf. Valkun will be up next, and he can let us know if he wants anything done differently from Gandalf's turn.

    And am I missing something, or is there a mistake in the description of the "pillaging" power? The rulebook says "non-empty", but the power description says "unoccupied".

    Pillaging is the same as the orc racial; any captured region that was occupied by at least one unit gives a bonus. Note that lost tribes and races in decline count for this, but mountains do not, so "non-empty" is a bit of a misnomer for it.

    Once I get back to my laptop, I'll grab the map in Illustrator and add a sidebar with generic color tokens for each player, one color for active races and another for races in decline. It should be fairly easy to run a quick edit in just about any program, even Paint, if any player is so inclined on their turn; the time required will be made up for in time saved through ease of use.

    EDIT: I am ridiculously excited about this, for some reason. :P

    Whoops. That was a typo. Damn you, I wanted the Giants. Let me wake up a bit and post my turn. Thanks for the hard work, Gandalf. I'm interested in seeing what you come up with for the map.

    Edit: I would have gone through the south personally. Dragon'd my way onto that border mountain and expanded into all the low lying areas. Settle between the mountain range and the lake probably.

    Edit 2: AND you took the area I was planning to go with Heroic Humans. Gandalf, you'll rue this day.

    For the record, I definitely would have set up a dragon on High Peaks, in the unlikely event I had managed to get that race.

    Pillaging Elves don't seem bad at all. With the Elf Racial, you can really be aggressive and not worry about counterattacks (except from sorcerors, obviously). I'm keeping an updated Small World board myself.
