Welcome to Londorion! A game about civilizations, their advancements and conflicts in this vast and mysterious world. Will they discover the secret behind their world, or will they remain ignorant of the truth that is greater than them?
The world of Londorion is a flat disk composed of five concentrical rings:
The Baroian ring; the first and outermost ring of Londorion.
The Valmian ring; the second ring of Londorion.
The Dralian ring; the third and middle ring of Londorion.
The Larmian ring; the fourth ring of Londorion.
The Kaetelian ring; the fifth and innermost ring of Londorion.
Outside of the rings and in the gaps between the rings there is the Oderhan, which is highly hostile to life.
The closer a ring is to the center of the world the more magic it contains, but the less mineral resources it has. This means that the innermost ring has the most magic but the least minerals meanwhile the opposite is true for the outermost ring.
Each ring also has special resources that are unique to that ring.
The Magnitude system
The magnitude system is the roll system that I will use to determinate whether your vote has succeeded or not. When a vote is made, it is assigned one of six magnitudes, these are the magnitudes in crescent order: Magnitude F, Magnitude D, Magnitude C, Magnitude B, Magnitude A and Magnitude S.
Once the magnitude has been choosen, a random number whose range depends on the magnitude will be generated and if the required statistics are equal or bigger than the number generated the vote will succeed… Magnitude F is the easiest magnitude to overcome, while S is the hardest. To be more precise, each magnitude’s roll range is: F - 0-50, D - 45-100, C - 95-150, B - 145-200, A - 195-250 and S - 245-300.
Your civilization’s culture will have a major role in your playstyle.
To manipulate your civilization’s culture you will use culture votes, culture votes don’t have rolls and you receive 1 culture vote for each 2 normal votes you have.
Culture is divided in two sections:
Memes - memes are the general tendencies of your culture and they give minor changes. Memes can be in 1 of 3 different conditions:
Emerging - this is the first phase of a new meme appearing in your culture, emerging memes are easier to remove than estabilished ones and can be encouraged by the player to become estabilished faster, emerging memes dont affect your votes and will become estabilished if ignored for long enough. A player may choose to start making certain memes emerge by using culture votes.
Estabilished - estabished memes affect your votes and are harder to remove, an estabilished meme can become descending if something that goes in contradiction to it happens or it can become descending if a player uses enough culture votes. Estabilished memes have 3 levels, 1st, 2nd and 3rd; each level increases the effects of the meme and makes it harder to push into descending state.
Descending - the state in which memes are before being completely removed. Descending memes still affect votes and will be removed if ignored for long enough and can be removed faster by using culture votes or they can become estabilished again by using culture votes.
Precepts - they are more specific characteristics of your culture, giving more major changes than memes. Percepts are also harder to create and remove than memes, and might require both culture votes and normal votes.

Attunement: Affects magic votes
Attribute points: 210

There needs to be the number of advantages minus one as number of disadvantages
A single advantage cant give an attribute boost greater than 15, two or more advantages cant boost the same attribute, the collective attribute boost off all your advantages cant be higher than 30.
You can have a max of 4 advantages. (if you have less than 4 then the effects of your advantages will be boosted)

Population and Civilization management
Your population growth is influenced by how much food you produce, excess food can be stored if you have the necessary storage methods, it will just be lost otherwise.
Your population is grouped in settlements, there are two kinds of settlements:
Villages and Towns, villages are the initial type of settlement that every settlement will be right after being founded, they have unlimited Carry Capacity and villages have an initial population growth boost that scales down the tinier the species is that lasts for 3 rounds. Villages are also harder to defend and have less building slots than towns.
Villages will be forced to become towns once having reached 5000 population.
Towns have more building slots than villages and are easier to defend, but have a limited carry capacity that needs to be expanded by using resources, if the town’s population is higher than the town’s CC then unrest will start to increase. Towns also have an higher productivity than villages.
Settlements also have a fortification value, fortification value affects the probability of the settlement of surviving raids and battles.
In addition, settlements are grouped into regions. Regions have stability, stability dictates how likely a region is to fall apart or to try to separate into a new nation. Other than stability there is also unrest, which is a value attributed to the entire civilization, high amount of unrest will cause negative effects.
Military power is divided into offensive power and defensive power, units can be “positioned” to produce either attacking power or defensive power but not both at the same time, doing this does not use a vote (But doing attacks and military manuevers does use votes).
Defensive power is needed to defend positions and offensive power is needed to attack positions. Take into account that it is generally slightly easier to defend a position than to attack it.
