@Darren, I've submitted it to GOG.com two times and both times they have rejected the game saying it's not something they are interested, I tried a second time once the game had a good following on steam as I thought that would help them see it was a good enough quality game but they weren't interested.

@Darren, as it says on the database page for warsim if you just go to https://huw2k8.itch.io/warsim

You can buy the game from itch.io with no trouble, and no screen reader issues at all, as in fact myself and many others have.

With our dreaming and singing, Ceaseless and sorrowless we! The glory about us clinging Of the glorious futures we see,
Our souls with high music ringing; O men! It must ever be
That we dwell in our dreaming and singing, A little apart from ye. (Arthur O'Shaughnessy 1873.)

So the next update for warsim I have planned is improvements to the godlings and demigods races, they were added a long time ago with the race generator when I was attempting to create the ultimate race generation system with as many races as possible, the system made them strong in battlescore but low in population and so on, but... that was more or less the only unique part about them.

I wish to change that with this update, If you are in a world with LITERAL GODS, you should be concerned.

I am trying to think of things that they should be able to do, special features of a race of half-gods, any ideas you guys have are welcome! the weirder the better

All replies to this will also be crossposted on to the reddit thread here - https://www.reddit.com/r/WarsimRpg/comm … lings_the/

a couple things I could think of.

1. when you defeat them in combat, you might take their riches or lands, but they actually don't die. for example if you defeat 200 in a battle, it doesn't take off their total numbers. For example you might take a land by killing 200 of them, but those 200 don't go away from the army's total numbers.
2. If money is required for independent races to maintain their kingdoms, all units for them are free.
3. Even if you win a fight against them, you lose half of your troops no matter what and you always lose your champions if you use any.
4. you destroy one of the buildings in your kingdom every time you take aggressive action against them, for example, you could have the barracks built and lose it after a fight just as retaliation.
5. The gods can call the demon hoard into existence at any time.
6. when you kill the gods, the demon hoard instantly becomes a threat and is far stronger than normal.
7. negative events happen much more often when you fight them.
8. you can be forced into a coin of fate game, where you don't have the option not to play once you defeat the gods, and the outcomes are heads: you live, tails: you die. You don't have the option not to play.
9. Depending on the nature of the godlings, they can make all like-aligned creatures in the game permanently hostile to you, making all of the creatures of the same alignment attack you every single turn.
10. gods don't have to wait to attack until the end of your turn and will even interrupt kingdom management to do so. alternately, they might be able to attack you more than once per year.
11. When gods attack they automatically kill a large portion of your forces before the battle even starts.

That's all I have for now.

Lol how would you prevail over them? Also what about some positive buffs for getting them on your side, i.e extra stats, extra loot and extra units for example. Also what if court jesters could play a more active role, like playing various nasty pranks to demoralize the enemy or trick them into giving up land or loot?

One Thing wich I experienced while playing is that at the beginning of each throne room Encounter, the Screen Reader reads the year and my men and such. But those stats I don't Need each time. Could there be an Option to configure when and how often the stats Show up? Some throne room visitors should get more than one reaction on your Actions as well. And can there be an Option to configure the volume of sounds and Music?
