Hello, and welcome to Rise! A forum game that will be run by yours truly.
This game will revolve around controlling a society via the use of action points.
An action point is used to perform actions. Actions are performed every round and can even take more than a single round to complete.
Action points can even be stacked on a single action to increase the success chance and speed up progress.
Your total number of action points every round depends on the population and efficiency of your society.
For every action point you place on an action, a d20 is rolled for success.
Low numbers can cause accidents to occur or even cause lost progress. High numbers will give good progress and possibly provide boons for your nation.
Actions dealing with your armies are handled with war points.
The total war points you have during a round is equal to half your action points plus your military strength modifier.
There is also something called war score. The better you are doing in a war, the higher your war score. The higher your war score, the higher your power during the negotiations after the war is over.
If your war score reaches zero, your nation will be forced to surrender and will have no power during the negotiations.
Random events can also trigger during rounds. These events can range anywhere between a cultural renaissance to urban myths and conspiracies to even global disasters.
“But what really makes this forum game special,” I hear you wonder. “What really makes Rise any different from the run of the mill nation leading forum game that we have grown so accustomed to?”
Well I’m glad you asked! In Rise, each player will create their own sapient species to make up their society! Your own species crafted to your own specifications.
Whether that happens to be a herd run by queens with near mindless drones, a race with 4 genders and a complex pattern of reproduction, or a semi-aquatic biped that must lay eggs underwater is completely up to you, so long as it lies within the boundaries of realism.
But be forewarned, however your creature is made could drastically slow your progress or lower your chances to do certain actions successfully.
I will be accepting a total of 5 players into the game. If you request to join, please describe your species with their strengths, weaknesses, and the kind of environment they would reside in. Remember, be descriptive!
I’ll wait until 5 people join or a week passes before I start the game off.
