Spoon, feel free to move this if you like.
What is this? I came up with a simplified version of Spoon's first forum game. I ran it today to test it, without the Hertak Flag Fleet and the Special Fleet. Humanity won a very close victory after 24 turns. I enjoyed doing it, it was on a knife edge nearly all the way, I didn't expect it to be so well balanced. But now I intend to add those two fleets and destroy that balance.
This is where you come in. By creating RP content. What good will that do? If I like it and it isn't tiny (and I liked I think everything last time, I'm easy to please!
) your fleet will gain a permanent power boost. These boosts will stack with additional RP. They also stick on your fleet if your fleet is destroyed and respawns. And anyone who RPs will jump the respawn queue over all other fleets who their owner hasn't RPd. If you didn't have a fleet last time but want to contribute, you can. And a boost will be assigned to a fleet in a faction of your choice (you can't choose the CSA.) Or you can just leave it to me to assign it. The RP doesn't have to be about a fleet. Such as when I did news reports last time.
Tomorrow the conflict will begin. I intend to move the conflict forward one turn per day until there is a winner. If people intervene with RP, humanity may win the battle. If not, The Hierarchy will almost certainly prevail. RP can begin immediately to get a jump start on things if anyone wishes.

I don't think I'll be RPing my own fleet.
This is the thread for if anyone wants to ask me anything or talk about this. I'm happy enough to talk about how the game work mechanically if anyone's interested in the numbers, otherwise I'll just report what happens in the turns. I'll make a thread for RP posts and a thread for turns.
