Ah that's a shame, for a digital purchase you shouldn't have to in my opinion.

THE VAMPIRE UPDATE (67 features)

So while working through my long planlist for Warsim as I prepare the roadmap to getting the game released, I found a small list of various plans for the Vampire city of Baiaa and it's respective features. I then searched the list for the rest of the vampire related ideas and read through all of them before deciding to clear them all in a little update.

The Vampire city of Baiaa is hidden in the Drylands region of the South. It's the same region where the demon gate and the nomads are.

To get it you have to climb down the big red canyon by sending knights but without the climbing pick upgrade it's very hard.

Once found as long as you have at least 10 soldiers at your disposal you can open the door and find what's within. A giant vampire city, and the source of a new problem... the vampires who leave the sealed gates that you opened. But if that happens a counter force of vampire hunters will arise.

Hi.

I recently picked this game up after a few years and I'm loving the latest changes so far.  Sadly though, I appear to have reached the end of my current game, which is a shame because I've gotten really attached to my nation and my six or seven vassals. 
Throughout my run, I encountered a few gamebreaking things, but I'm not really sure they can be fixed in a way that makes sense.  I've found that it's really easy to build up a ridiculously powerful champion that can dominate in the arena provided spiked pits are closed.  Following that, all you need to do is bet the max amount every year and you're basically garenteed a fortune.  Additionally, if you lose a ton of money in the arena beforehand, your betting max is increased, so I lost a million gold, bet a million on my champion in a grand tournament or w/e and then found myself with more money than I would ever need.  I then purchased the troops from my allies and turned them into vassals.
Now I'm not really sure what to do.  I was hoping the game would allow me to spawn an even more powerful nation like it did early in my game, but no such luck.  I have yet to find the vampires or the demon gate though, so that may be something I should look into next.
Is there anything else I can do to continue my expansion?  As ridiculous as my nation has become, i am enjoying watching all the numbers grow.

This post is all over the place, but I also had a suggestion.  It would be cool if reputation with factions rose and fell as you messed with their allies.  So let's say I'm allied with faction A and faction B attacks me.  Unless Faction A and B have an alliance, faction A should lose regard for faction B and consider raiding faction B on my behalf.  Also, should my vassal nations be attacking each other?

Thanks, and keep up the amazing work on this gem of a game!

Mammon slept. And the beast reborn spread over the earth and its numbers grew legion. And they proclaimed the times and sacrificed crops unto the fire, with the cunning of foxes. And they built a new world in their own image as promised by the sacred words, and spoke of the beast with their children. Mammon awoke, and lo! it was naught but a follower.

hey question
what efects the vasalisation stats, like what i need to have to vassalize a kingdom, 10 more percent lands, 50 percent more units?

2020-02-23 13:26:30

@Aaron77, Thanks for jumping into the game again, you raise a good point about the arena and it's something I need to look into further, one solution I have is injury... if a fighters health goes low in a fight they should risk injury which would be a permanent reduction in total health/strength. Enough of this and your champion is dead meat.

The game should allow you to spawn infinitely larger and more powerful RNG nations, this happens if at least one independent kingdom is dead and the other 4,3,2 or 1 are vassals or allies, or if all of them are dead. You then get an explore new lands option on the main screen unless you're playing a custom game and have disabled the feature.

The demons are the end game boss faction though so you should definitely look at dealing with them!

Definitely a good tip about factions, I need to work on diplomacy more in the future! smile

Thanks for your kind words and I hope you continue to enjoy the game!

@Omer, Lands are irrelevant, it's all Battlescore, so if you have 100 soldiers with 100 battlescore each, that's 10000 battlescore, now if your enemies total troops are only worth 2000 battlescore combined, you can attempt to vassalise them. The minimum requirement is having 5x the battlescore of your attempted vassal.

If you have 10x or 15x and beyond you get bonuses in odds of successfully vassalising them too

I see.  As of now, all existing independent kingdoms are vassals of mine, so I guess I have to choose one to take out to spawn a new one?  That makes me feel terrible! smile
As for the grand champion thing, your plan makes logical sense and is realistic, but wouldn't it basically defeat the purpose of holding grand tournaments?  Since most of the combatants are so evenly matched later in the tournament, the victor will be far weaker than it started and finding powerful personal champions will become somewhat difficult.
On that note, is there an advantage to having all of your personal champion slots filled up?  I can't find a use for them, other than running forts, but I can hire any old warrior with high strength to do that.  I know you can send them out to battle, but I don't see how 6 champions can contribute meaningfully to your combat potential especially if you have members of more powerful races already in your army, e.g. demons.

It will make tournaments more of a risk but it doesn't mean they will be beaten each time by someone equal.

Champions are supposed to be your personal warriors who you can send to get things done.

They can:

* Lead fortresses
* Challenge a rival kingdom to become your vassal
* Fight the arena grand champion
* Fight in battle giving bonuses
* Several other things I've forgotten

But I'm going to make them much more valuable in the combat update as leaders are required to take an army, sending a skilled personal champion could be a great idea.

Hello.
So, I am trying to open this door in the blackmarket, which mural should I go to first to get the numbers? I tried Yellow, then Red, but it wouldn't let me open the door.
Also, I heard something about a Necromancer's hall in this new update? Does this meen you can gget a hold of undead? I think that would be cool, have a nice meat shield unit, I use Slave soldiers now, but... Slave soldiers. Only reason I have the slaver fort still around is because I can't seem to change it into anything else.
Also, How does the Demon horn work? I activated it, but it has been like, 30 years or so and nothing has happened.
Anyway.

Hey so think of other ways to combine the murals

The necromancers hall spawns if the leader of the blackmarket is a necromancer (rare) and allows them to spawn the undead

Demon horn will send you some demons... after 100 years!

Hope all this helps smile
