Proposal: The Last Straw

5-0. Reached Quorum.—Chronos

Add a rule called Conflict:-

Often, a Country that is involved in a Territorial Dispute or performing an Invasion may make an attack post to the blog entitled: “(Attack Method): (Defending Country Name) at (Territory Name)” and noting the initial population presence of the attacker and defender in that Territory, as well as the outcome of the attack.

The Attack Method corresponds to the Government Type of the Attacking Country. Each method is ineffective when used in a Territory controlled by a Country using a certain Government Type.

* A Country using Despotism may Dominate if e has an attacking presence that is at least twice the size of the defending presence. When this method is used, the native population is increased by the defending presence and the defending presence is reduced to zero. This Attack Method is ineffective when used in a Territory controlled by a defender using Feudalism.

* A Country using Feudalism may Crusade. This reduces the defender’s presence by the attacker’s presence and the attacker’s presence by the defender’s original presence (before it was reduced). This Attack Method is ineffective when used in a Territory controlled by a defender using Anarchy.

* A Country using Neorobotnikism may Exterminate. This reduces both the defender’s presence and the native population by twice the attacker’s presence, and then reduces the attackers presence by the defender’s original presence and the original native population (before they were reduced). This Attack Method is ineffective when used in a Territory controlled by a defender using Telecracy.

* A Country using Telecracy may Mind Control. This transfers an amount of population units from the defending presence to the attacking presence equal to the square root of the defending presence plus one (rounding all fractions up to the nearest integer). This Attack Method is ineffective when used in a Territory controlled by a defender using Neorobotnikism.

* A Country using Tangelocracy may Swindle. E may transfer to emself an amount of $B held by the defending Country equal to the attacking presence times the highest Commodity SELL price in the most recent Market Position. If this leaves the defending Country with negative $B then the attacker may make a Transportation entry on behalf of the defending Country from this Territory to the nearest Territory controlled by the defender (if the defender is unable to pay the costs for the first period of Transportation, then the attacker must do so). This Attack Method is ineffective when used in a Territory controlled by a defender using Tangelocracy.

* A Country using Anarchy may Pillage, which means e may transfer Commodities from the stocks of the defender to emself, but no more than eir attacking presence and no more than the specific production capacity of the Territory in each Commodity. If any of the defending Country’s Commodity stocks is at zero after this, then the Territory becomes controlled by the attacking Country and the defending presence and native population get added to the attacker’s presence for the final population. This Attack Method is ineffective when used in a Territory controlled by a defender using Despotism.

Invasion rules (attacking a Territory that is already controlled) were what I had in mind next, if anyone wants to take that on.

oie, some fixes will be needed for this. $B = HD (wrong currency!)

Now that I re-read it, I think the balance of some attacks will have to be adjusted. The despotism attack should be stronger and the telecracy weaker.
