July RC
 Group admin 
Challenge-In-Progress

Opening story/background: Not written yet


Mythron - Regroup because now you don't have to worry about protecting your borders from the Outlaws on the whole Eastern side. Your army can now be much stronger because it is not spread out. After your win over the BL and near loss in Meids, you realize that you need to brush up your army a bit. Build training camps. Or you could develop and build roads to make a more efficient trade route between Nerogue and Mythron.


Rainos - What in the world did King Bartok do? Meids was in our hands! Victory was within reach! Show whether you agree or disagree with Bartok's plans. On another note, a potential new enemy, Nerogue has recently signed a treaty that solidified their alliance with Mythron, one part stating that if Mythron is attacked, Nerogue would also show up to the scene. Since we have never/rarely ever fought Nerogueians, show your character spying on Nerogue training camps. Or maybe go to Enalica and strengthen your ties with them since now Nerogue may be against us.


Enalica - Ties with Rainos?


Outlaws - Nerogue was granted lots of land, but you weren't. Now Mythron is strengthening its own army and that isn't a good thing for you. Show your character attacking a Mythronian training camp. Or you could join in Nerogue's path by either joining one of their expeditions/building projects, or hinder their plans.


Nerogue - After a formal treaty with Mythron and your territory expansion, you have lots of work ahead of you. The cities (Zorthan, Morthog, and Rogath) are nearing completion, there are places to explore, and beasts to purge. You may also start building roads for efficient trade routes between Nerogue and Mythron.

This is a pretty appropriate time to plan, IMO. Yeah, I think that's a pretty good idea for an RC, well, maybe. It depends on whether or not we're going to actually add coins as a part of the holdings feature. We most likely will, a lot of the other staffers are really liking the idea.

We actually talked about doing more with the Nerogue expansion and hinting at a civil war in Rainos. The trading goods are nowhere near ready for release.

I see. The civil is not until September though, and I don't see how it would affect the other factions.

I agree, we should do more with Nerogue. Maybe have them finish making a city?

Umm, we'd actually be doing the opposite.


For what we had planned already:
- Nerogue Expansion RC (July)

- Harvest time RC (August)

- Rainosian civil war UCs (September - October)

It is still not fully decided on this issue:

Does Mythron go and attack Rainos once the civil war starts? If so, does it want Nerogue to go along with them? From what I remember Nerogue doesn't want a part of it and instead through Thomas the Trader some ties between those two factions start as the civil war goes on

We also had a thing where Enalica discovers valuables in its land and people from other factions flock there to get some of it. But the outcome of that is unclear.

I think that Mythron would take advantage of the civial war, and attack Rainos. However, united by a common enemy, Rainos would defend against Mythron.

Quoting David FNJ We also had a thing where Enalica discovers valuables in its land and people from other factions flock there to get some of it. But the outcome of that is unclear.

I don't think that would draw members, but it would certianly give Enalica something interesting in it's story. Maybe with it's valuables, it could support Rainos when Mythron attacks.

I feel like Mythron would want us to go with them (for a reason in the Nerogue faction group).

The second concept is something I've actually contemplated a little while ago. I think I like this one better. I think, since the valuables are on Nerogue's land, they feel like it belongs to them and they fight back.

Since it is an RC, nothing big will happen.

Mythron - Regroup because now you don't have to worry about protecting your borders from the Outlaws on the whole Eastern side. Your army can now be much stronger because it is not spread out. After your win over the BL and near loss in Medis, you realize that you need to brush up your army a bit. Build training camps. Or you could develop and build roads to make a more efficient trade route between Nerogue and Mythron.

Rainos - What in the world did King Bartok do? Medis was in our hands! Victory was within reach! Show whether you agree or disagree with Bartok's plans. (other stuff hopefully to be added here by Rainosians like Asad and Gilbert)

Enalica - Trying to get Enalica into the story before the strike of valuables is hard for me to see, I need some help in this area

Outlaws - Nerogue was granted lots of land, but you weren't. Now Mythron is strengthening its own army and that isn't a good thing for you. Show your character attacking a Mythronian training camp. Or you could join in Nerogue's path by either joining one of their expeditions/building projects, or hinder their plans.

Nerogue - After a formal treaty with Mythron and your territory expansion, you have lots of work ahead of you.

Are we necessarily an enemy? Or a potential enemy? The contract between Mythron/Nerogue will be of one that says Nerogue would come if Mythron is attacked. I like the spy thing, and something in the faction challenge needs to show something with the removal from Medis.

I'd say potential enemy. In the UCMA, the Nerogues had the option of attacking Enalica. Since Enalica and Rainos are allies, we would come to help the less powerful faction I assume.

I thought we were doing one of the classic RCs, like 'Escape!' or 'Persuasion'. We don't have to, but I feel like all of our challenges recently have been the same: react in some general manner to a set of events or kill some people. Could we add that breakdown info as a news update and have the actual challenge be something entertaining and easy, like 'Water - Have your character interact with water - fall in a lake, go over a waterfall or simply take a swim to beat the heat.'

I agree, this is leaning towards the UC spectrum way too much. Maybe we could simply have something like,

"Regroup"
Show your character regrouping with allies. These could be any person(s) that you do or do not know...as long as they are not enemies.

Indeed that is a rough draft, but it is more of an RC than the above comments.

Draft 2

JULY RC: Regroup

To be clear - the last day to post your July RC creations is the 31st of this month.


The recent formal treaty between Mythron and Nerogue has spurred people to confirm and/or strengthen their relationships between their allies. Nerogueians are visiting Mythronian cities and vice versa. Rainosians and Enalicans are developing a safe water zone between them for more secure trading between them.

But in Rainos, the recent abandonment from the sack of Meids has people questioning Bartok's leadership...Rainosians are also allowed to instead show how his character reacts to the news and what action(s) he takes in response.

Greetings Neroguians! Both of our factions need an ally. Otherwise, Rainos and Enalica's alliance will destroy us. One faction isn't enough to destroy those maniacs. Allying with Rainos is wrong. Those hypocrites fight against us trying to invade them, yet they're the invaders. They rebelled and invaded our territory on Rainos, and now they're trying to take our continent! As for the land, we've decided to give it to you. You deserve it for helping us so much. We need to work on solidifying our union. A loose alliance filled with distrust won't be productive for either of us. We need unity. Thanks for your help and thanks for reading!


And this is the letter that is being sent back:
Quoting reply
Greetings Mythronians! All too true. We were surprised by Rainos's attack. You'd think that they would keep to themselves after they gained hold of that land. They cannot advance further. Agreed, trust is vital, and our union must be strengthened as it would be advantageous to both of us. We give our utmost gratitude and thanks for granting us the land! Our rapid growth left us to some hard times, especially in Tomeu because of the overpopulation. This will allow us to purge much of the land from vile creatures and provide safe trade routes between us as well as new homes for the citizens here. We promise to keep the land in great condition to the best of our ability, and we would be glad to come alongside you in time of defense of Mythron against those that come against it. We are honored to fight alongside your strong men. Thank you once more for your generous offer, and may there be peace among us.

That sounds like Sadon except the part where he gives away land and sounds happy about it. Just to confirm, this establishes Nerogue as an independent country?
