show: Episode III Homeworld

General Concept
It started last year as a celebration for 10 years of Clans on Conquer Club, as a trial game for a new concept and grew into something much more than I ever expected! I'm happy to announce the Second Edition of the Clan Realms at War: Homeworld!

Some of you maybe familiar with Sid Meiers "Civilization" game. CR@W is the Clan Worlds version of Civ, with a twist from somewhere deep down in IcePack's imagination. It takes its inspiration from multiple games IcePack has played over his 33 years of roaming the Realm...

Clans will travel the expanse of space on an unknown "meta" map from their starting homeworlds. They will have to explore, battle, react, solve mysteries, engage in diplomacy and learn about the universe around them! Clans and players will continue to have a level of anonymity; when exploring space, players will all play under pseudonyms, as well as different Clan (Realm) names in order to disguise the true peoples you encounter.

Clans will have to interact indirectly through IcePack until such time as they learn the true identities of the space explorers around them. Clans may choose to identify themselves through diplomacy. Clans may use diplomacy to gain intel on other groups, declare alliances, seek non aggression pacts and exchange resources of credits and ore with one another. As we learned in CR@W v1 - there will likely be a few unexpected twists and turns as you explore the deep dark mystery of space...you've been warned

Battle, diplomacy, intrigue, secrecy and the unknown await you in...Clan Realms @ War: Homeworld!

The purpose of this secrecy is to hide your clans identity and provide you with a layer of anonymity within the game itself!

Clan Name: (Example: FALL)

CR@W Faction/House Name: (Example: the Federation)
[This is what you will show up on the tables as for anonymity purposes]

CR@W Homeworld Name: (Example: Planet Earth)

Alien Race: Select an Alien Race from the Start Up Packages and let IcePack know your selection.

MOW: Send a list of all the player(s) within your clan that need access to the controls for automated map. (everyone can view, but moving, adding ships, etc will require special permissions. You'll need to send the list of MOW's to IcePack upon start up)

Optional: A House / Realm Motto: (Examples: To Boldly Go Where No Man Has Gone Before; From the Stars, Knowledge)

Deadline to Sign Up is JAN 7th 2018

Note: If your clan does NOT supply this information, efforts will be made to name Homeworlds etc to still hide what Clan is located where.

Quick Reference Guide (Translated v1 to v2)

Realms = Factions
Castles = Homeworlds
Cities = Space Stations
Lords = Captains
Watchtowers = Satellites
Gold/GP = Galactic Credits/GC
Barbarians = Roiders
Nomads = Merchants
Siege = Blockade
Fame = Power

Quick Start Guide
A quick overview of the things you NEED to know

1. The first step is to follow the sign up instructions. You must sign up this time in order to participate.

2. The new system makes it so you have to select one of nine alien races. Each option has its own unique pros and cons. We also expand the economic system with an additional resource, credits (gold) and ore. The alien races also start with differing amounts of credits and ore to start with, so choose carefully. Credits mainly push alien research and tech progress, while the more rare and difficult to find ore is used towards building a successful fleet.

3. Its important to note that the "maximum 15 players" restriction has been lifted. The new system will allow for 10-30 players each clan under a new "Starship Points System". The new system allows flexibility for each clan to tailor it to their own needs. For example, if you only have 10 players that are interested, you can set your game plan to build fewer, larger ships. If you have a large group willing and interested, you can focus on building a higher amount of smaller ships. Your clans player pool size may impact your strategy going into the game, and thus may impact which alien race you may (or may not) want to have guiding you.
Plan accordingly.

4. All Homeworlds start with the same amount of ore on the planet ready to be mined. This is a finite amount, once it runs out you'll need to find a new source.

5. We recommend looking through the three FAQ's (General, Realm Management, and Starship Management.) These will go into greater detail as to how Research & Tech Works, and how that impacts your game plans.

6. There are NO "Inactive Houses" this game. However there will still be a few NPC's (non playing characters) that impact the game...(NPC = Non-Playing Characters; think Barbarians, Nomads, and the like...)

7. As previously announced, the game map and legends including ship movement, purchasing, etc will be automated by the site (this is called the "Meta Map"). You'll be entered into the game by the Gamemaster (IcePack) and find it on a new tab in Central Command once its released. It will take a little bit to learn, but once you do it will save everyone time and greatly reduce errors.

8. There are three types of Starships (Units). Each Realm has a maximum capacity for 30 Starship Points. You must use a minimum of 10 players, but after that players may emulate multiple Starships (one at a time) following the basic rules provided in the Spawning Section.

9. This game is now a semi co-operative game. If you are unfamiliar with what that means, it means that Realms must (at least partially) work together to overcome a common cause (to be learned during the game). You determine your level of involvement (or non involvement) towards that goal. However as time moves on, that goal becomes more difficult to complete. In order to claim victory, this common goal must be achieved. It will be a delicate balance between helping the cause, and making sure your Realm is in position for victory later. If you don't assist, all Realms may fall. If you assist too much, you maybe to weak to claim the throne.

10. Depending on the alien race you selected, you'll have varying resources at your disposal. Instead of starting with 3 Starships or "Lords" as we had v1, you will decide how best to allocate those resources, whether towards Starships, Research, or Tech's. ALL players, regardless of alien race selected must build at least ONE Starship at the start of Turn 1

Just remember, in space no one can hear you scream....

General Descriptions / Info

Postby IcePack on Wed Sep 20, 2017 6:47 pm

General Descriptions and Info
Start of Game:
How to sign up / what you need to do has already been documented regarding selecting alien races etc.
However unlike the start of Bannermen, Homeworld you do NOT start with any lords. The story picks up from when the Realms all get ready to launch their first Starship.

Depending on the alien race you selected, you'll have varying resources at your disposal. Instead of starting with 3 Starships or "Lords" as we had v1, you will decide how best to allocate those resources, whether towards Starships, Research, or Tech's. ALL players, regardless of alien race selected must build at least ONE Starship at the start.

As with the previous edition, you can name players and units as they enter the game.

General:
Variable Maximum Player - each Faction will have 30 Starship Points allocated to them. They can choose how to best utilize those points for their own group. Each Faction must use a minimum of 10 players. Players may not emulate more then one Starship at a time. A player can also only emulate Starship a maximum of 3 times.

Research Levels - research levels are critical investments in the future. Research levels represent the ease and expenses required in order to develop new ship technologies. A low research level keeps new tech expensive to upgrade, while increasing your research levels doesn't immediately provide a tech boost it allows for easier and cheaper tech level advances in the future. All alien races are able to get all 5 levels of research.

Starship Techs - these advancements will have direct impacts on the Starships stats for construction and upgrades. Advancing your research levels will allow for cheaper tech development. Regardless of your research or tech levels, none of those will overrule your natural alien race abilities / restrictions.

Sensor - the number of hexes your Starships will be able to view while searching the galaxy.
Hull - the amount of hit points your Starships have. When you hit 0, your Starship is destroyed.
Weapon - the amount of potential damage the Starship can impose on enemies.
Warp - the number of hexes your Starships can travel each turn
Economy - One of two core factors in your income growth. Impacts your Galatic Credits Income per Homeworld
Mining - The second core factor in your income growth. Impacts your mining per Turn for Homeworlds and other units.
Alien Bonus - Different alien races have bonuses, some allow you an additional tech level to Tech Level 6 or reduces it to 4 as a penalty in an area.

Alien Races:
There are a variety of races to select from. Each comes with different starting abilities, startings credits and ores, and pros / cons. You can find them here

Specials Abilitys:
Some of the alien races have special abilities or detractions. You'll find those on each of the alien races card when reviewing them to decide on your starting race.

Turn and Realm Management

Postby IcePack on Wed Sep 20, 2017 6:48 pm

Realm Management Rules

Homeworld Ore Levels:
In addition to your starting funds (that change depending on your alien species and are listed in the starting package info for you) ALL Homeworlds start with 100 ore on them. This resource IS limited, and is what your “mining” tech takes out / mines from your world each turn. Once this Homeworld stat reaches 0, there is no more ore to be had at this location.

As the intro states, resources are in short supply and you’ll need to explore and find other sources of available ore to be mined.


Income:
Homeworld & NPC Worlds
+1 Credit / Economy Tech Level / Turn
+1 Ore / Mining Tech Level / Turn (Mined from the Ore Deposit Total)

Space Stations
+2 Credit / Turn (Flat Rate)
No Ore Income* (See Asteriods)

Asteriods - Asteriods are densely constructed ore deposits and have no limits as to production totals like homeworlds
No Credit Income* (See Space Station)
+2 Ore / Turn (Flat Rate) when Space Stations are built on Asteriods

Galactic Trading - Alien race may affect this income amount
*See Diplomacy

Expenses:
Research Upgrade - see your alien tech tree chart
Tech Upgrade - see your alien tech tree chart
Building a Starship - see your alien starship chart

Building a Space Station 25 Credits / 25 Ore
Building a Satellite 10 Credits / 10 Ore
Building a Hyper Gate 10 Credits / 10 Ore
Equipping a Starship w/ Mines 5 Credits / 5 Ore
Bioform a World 25 Credits / 0 Ore

Transfer Ore Via Freighters 5 Credits / 0 Ore

Diplomacy:
STATUS DECLARATION:
- To simplify the diplomatic process, if one side declares war both are considered at war.
- Both parties must agree to alliance status to get benefit
------
Neutral - For Factions that have yet to meet, or have met and not established any stance towards one another.

Allies - +1 credits per ally per turn you have. Must officially renounce alliance seven days in advance of hostilities.

War - +1 damage to losing side when battle ends during war

Vanquished Clans
- A Faction is vanquished once all ships have been destroyed as well as their Homeworld. Even if they have the capability to bring in an additional Starship at a Space Station, if they at any point reach 0 Starships and 0 Homeworlds they will be considered vanquished regardless of their Space Station or Starship capability status.

- A faction that quits mid game or near end of game, will have their remaining Starships automatically returned to the closest Homeworld they own. If they lose that in the process, the Starships will head towards the closest NPC World, then Space Station.

Starship Management

Postby IcePack on Wed Sep 20, 2017 6:48 pm

Starship Unit Management Rules
Starship Naming:
You'll be naming your Starships after their Captains.
"Captain Jean Luc" of the House of Awesome
Starship Class: Battle Cruiser
vvv Tech Levels vvv

FLAGSHIPS:
At time of construction, a Starship maybe designated as the Realms "flagship". This is their lead ship (and generally their most advanced).
At the start of game, one Starship must receive this designation.

If a Flagship is destroyed in combat, all surviving ships receive a -1 damage until a new Flagship can be constructed.
Flagship designation cannot be retired outside of loss of an existing flagship, so designate them accordingly.

Initiative:
- Initiative will be the same as Bannermen, 1d100 rolled for each clan and prioritized high to low to determine movement order.
-Ties will be re rolled until there is a clear higher and lower initiative for all clans.

Spawning:
- Spawning a Starship can ONLY take place on non-engaged Homeworlds, NPC Worlds, or Space Stations.
- Has a total of 30 Starship Points to spend on different units throughout the game.

ReSpawning:
- ReSpawning follows the same placement guidelines for spawning as well as the following:
- ReSpawned members must be destroyed before coming back
- ReSpawned members still spend Starship Points per usual
- Members can only return a total max of 3 times (the first, and two respawns)

Battle Results:
There are no more kidnapping or ransom results. There is only hit points, and damage given.

Hit Points (HP):
Hit points for each ship is determined by what tech level it was built at. A ship is destroyed when HP hits 0.

Damage:
Damage is determined by RNG (die roll) based on the weapon tech it was built with.

show


Battle:
All battles need to have settings submitted with the action (IE: I attack the home world, here are my settings). If settings are not received within 24 hours of turn submission, NS C F will be used instead. It's encouraged to ALL clans to set up "default" settings for each player for each map, that way it expedites the whole battle process for everyone.

Battle for an Occupied Homeworld
- Battles will be held on the "All Your Base" Map with the defending clans settings. The clan must share the same default settings selected at the beginning, it will not vary from player to player as the Bannermen version did. All defense games will be on AYB unless a clan has bioformed the Homeworld, which allows them to select from any of CC's Regular (non Beta) maps.

Battle for an Occupied NPC World
- Battles for NPC World will be on "Lunar" map, NS CH FOG No Trench
- NPC Worlds ARE able to be bioformed as well by the owner

Battle for an Occupied Space Station
- Battles for Space Stations will take place on the Space map (defenders settings)

Battle for an Occupied Hyper Gate
- Battles for Hyper Gates will take place on Solar System Map (defenders settings)

Battle for an Occupied Satellitte
- Battle for Satellites will be on the Solar System map (defenders settings)

Fleet vs Fleet
- Battles for Fleets will take place on:
1) Trafalaxy Map or
2) Solar System Map or
3) Space Map

SALVAGE:
If you DESTROY a starship, you gain 1/4 of the ore it took to build the ship as "salvage". It stays with the starship until it docks at a Homeworld or Outpost.

Movement:
- Movement is related to your Warp Tech Level. Note various Starship Types (Frigate, Battle Cruiser, Dreadnaught) have different Max Warp Tech Levels.

Hyper Gates - Similar to "worm holes" where Starships can traverse large expanses of the galaxy, hyper gates allow for space travel much farther and faster then the traditional warp engines. However, Hyper Gates must be built ahead of time by Starships. They are also an interlocked network, so ANY Hyper Gate placed by ANY Faction can be utilized by ANY Faction, not just the one(s) that placed it. They are also limit visibility, where if your sensors allow you to see the hyper gate, you will be able to see the network of hyper gates but even if you have additional left over "hexes" you wont see the other side on the adjacent hexes. Meaning, unless something is ON the hyper gate, you will have to "jump blind" to whats on the other side until you get there.

Visibility:
- Your Starship visibility is based off your Sensor Tech Level.
- Your Homeworld visibility is 3 hex
- Your Space Station visibility is 2 hex
- Satellite visibility is 5 hex
- Hyper Gate visibility is 0 hex
- Mines visibility is 0 hex

Retrofit:
If you didn't build your Starship to its maximum capacity, or subsequently later advanced your tech and would like to retrofit and existing ship you can do so. The costs are double for each tech you would like to retrofit. You only pay double the cost of the target Tech Level, you do not have to pay for each step you are upgrading.

Natural Wonders (Relics)
- There are many strange, fearful and wondrous things in space. Natural Wonders are Homeworlds version of relics. However, instead of 100% "good" things be warned...there are some things found in space that aren't as friendly as the fields traversed in Bannermen. However, the ratio of beneficial does out-weight the bad by a decent margin. Some of the natural wonders will be one and done, while others will benefit all Factions that find them.

Player Management Rules
Its important to note that the "maximum 15 players" restriction has been lifted. The new system will allow for 10-30 players each clan under a new "Starship Points System". The new system allows flexibility for each clan to tailor it to their own needs. For example, if you only have 10 players that are interested, you can set your game plan to build fewer, larger ships. If you have a large group willing and interested, you can focus on building a higher amount of smaller ships. Your clans player pool size may impact your strategy going into the game, and thus may impact which alien race you may (or may not) want to have guiding you.
Plan accordingly.

Players may only emulate one Starship at a time.
Players may only emulate a maximum of 3 Starships total.

Players absent for longer then a month will need to be replaced by another player not already in the game.
If a player has no replacement available, one of the active players may take over.

Scoring and How to Win

Postby IcePack on Wed Sep 20, 2017 6:50 pm

Power (Fame)

Power is CR@W: Homeworlds version of "Fame". However, the approach this time is slightly different. One knows when oneself is famous. But when, exactly does one become powerful? What is power? Who has it, and how is it achieved? Thoroughout history, we hear many things about it.

With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility
Knowledge is Power
The Way to Have Power is to Take it

But does any one person truly understand it? In the future, even in Homeworld we will wrestle with power, for it, and against it.

Unlike CR@W: the Bannermen - there will be no power chart. One must simply achieve it. Be it from growth, great deeds, exploration, or through the unrelenting destruction of your enemies you must work for it before one can understand it.

In general, CR@W: Homeworld has a greater variety of ways to gain power than its predecessor. You will not simply gain power by amassing a large quantity of satellites, nor will you tip the scales in your favor by simply gaining more alliances then the other Realms around you. No, power is more complex, mysterious, and must be earned.

The only other piece of direction from this method will be to say simply that CR@W: Homeworld has a higher focus on combat then the previous edition.

Image

Winning Conditions
There will be two winning objectives in the game. BOTH of these objectives can only be claimed if the co-operative mission that will be revealed in game has also been achieved.

Co-Operative Mission:
To be revealed as game play commences.

Military Victory:
Control over 50%+ of the Homeworld's for 1 Turn without any engagements, as well as meet a special criteria of the co-operative mission (to be announced later with the co op details). If a Homeworld falls under an engagement during the 1 Turn, that engagement must be won in order to count.

Cultural Victory: Your Realm must acquire 500 Power in order to earn a cultural victory.

Alliances:
If your Realm has been reduced to 9 Starship Points or less and you are allied with the victor, you will be considered part of the victory group. If you have more then 9 Starship points left, you are considered a full fledged Realm still and will not be included

I've also been able to finalize a Green Star prize to the individual lord with the highest fame.

Other Special Prizes:
- best house name
- best house motto
- best lord names
- other "special prizes" such as most inquizative, most helpful, most honest, most intense, most well rounded, most active etc.

We will also continue the tradition of the winner naming something in the next edition, as well as making a decision on a game element.

FAQ Section 2

FAQ: REALM MANAGEMENT

Well, lets start with the obvious. Since this is the newest and probably most confusing to everyone I figured we will jump in with both feet and tackle it straight off.
================================================================
RESEARCH & TECH LEVELS - HOW TO:
So we are going to use the Mahw, because they are pretty straight forward to learn from. Here, you have the "standard" research & tech tree.
show: Standard Research and Tech Tree


First thing that needs to be explained, is RESEARCH Levels are the big thick rows.
Everyone starts at RESEARCH LEVEL 1.
Within each RESEARCH LEVEL, you have 7 TECH's - each of those TECH's have 6 TECH LEVELS showing to the right.
There are two ways to upgrade, all require CREDITS ONLY for RESEARCH or TECH Upgrades.
First thing you'll have to decide is, do you want to upgrade overall RESEARCH or a specific TECH level?
RESEARCH doesn't improve any specific TECH for your ship, however it brings overall costs for TECH upgrades down later on.
TECH upgrades do actually improve in game Starship statistics (or economy / mining which will be explained later).
Green X is the highest TECH level you have achieved in all catagories.
The numbers to the right of the green boxes are the cost to move up that INDIVIDUAL TECH's stat.
The amounts in the large left boxes are the costs to upgrade a single RESEARCH level.

Everyone following me so far? Totally lost? Confused? Good! Lets give some examples:

So first we are going to show how to do a quick TECH level purchase. Easy stuff right?
So we look at our chart, we are "RESEARCH LEVEL 1" and we want to upgrade our ships sensors (distance in # of hexes they can see from the ship). Sounds reasonable as a first purchase, right?
We will say that we are low on credits, so we can't afford the RESEARCH LEVEL 2 - 15 Credit upgrade and the 25 Credit Upgrade for sensors, and we definitely feel strongly about getting better sensors right off the bat.

So for your turn you would submit the TECH Purchase, from Level 1 to 2.
show: Second TECH Level Purchase


You spent 25 Credits, and now your SENSOR TECH LEVEL 2 is "Green Boxed" showing you have in fact upgraded that Technology for potential use on future ships. (more on this in the Starship FAQ)

Now we look at our Overall RESEARCH & TECH LEVEL Tree again. It'll look like this:
show: Overall Tech Tree


As you can see, Sensors now would cost 30 Credits to go to SENSOR TECH LVL 3, but everything else still costs 25 Credits to upgrade.

Later, our realm has a little extra credits and are looking at long term cost savings. We know we want to upgrade to WARP TECH LEVEL 3, but we dont want to pay 55 Credits just for two extra TECH levels. So we decide to invest a little in our future.
First, we upgrade our RESEARCH LEVEL from level 1 to level 2 for a cost of 15 CREDITS. We now can completely ignore the entire row of costs for RESEARCH LEVEL 1, because those costs no longer apply. Our Research & Tech Tree will now look like this:
show: Research Level 2


Now we focus our attention to that WARP TECH 3 we were interested in. We can only upgrade ONE RESEARCH and / or ONE TECH level per turn, so an upgrade like this would take two turns. (RESEARCH LEVEL 2 + WARP 2 can be done in one turn, and then WARP 3 would be the following turn). Spending another 45 CREDITS we now have WARP TECH LVL 3 (60 total for research and two tech levels instead of 55 for just the two tech levels on research level 1, but helps reduce costs overall later on). Now our Research & Tech Tree looks like this:

show: New Research and Tech Tree


You'll notice the changes its made on the FRIGATE Starship Tech Tree below as well, we will get into these details below in the Starship Unit FAQ but I wanted to show the correlation between your Research & Tech Tree, and what happens with your Starship Tech Levels.

FAQ Section 3

Postby IcePack on Wed Sep 20, 2017 6:51 pm

FAQ: STARSHIP UNITS

STARSHIP BUILDING, TECH LEVELS and UPGRADES - HOW TO:

show: Starship Building Tech Tree


We are ready to build ourselves a Frigate, one of three Starship Types. You can build any "type" at anytime assuming you have the credits and ore required. You never HAVE to build your Starship with the highest tech available, in fact there maybe instances in which you might prefer to build a lower tech'd unit (for costs savings, or other).

I'll explain here how to read the Tech Tree, build a ship with the minimum "base" techs, maxed out, and something in between.

First how to read the Starship Tech Tree - the techs reflect your RESEARCH & TECH Tree (mentioned in the FAQ above). You are not capable of building with tech levels that are red on your Starship Tech Tree.

To build a basic, minimum tech'd Frigate you look on the left for the BASE Cost.
5 Credits, 5 Ore.
Now you consider which Upgrades you want on your Starship. Obviously, you HAVE to have the minimum tech level in order to run the ship, so for this first example we are going to do Tech Level 1 for all Techs.

Sensor Tech 1 = 1 Hex, 1 Credit / 1 Ore (this means you can see adjacent hexes only) and the Upgrade Cost is ADDED to your base cost.
Hull 1 = 4 Hit Points, 1 Credit / 1 Ore (you can take up to 4 points of damage before dying) and the Upgrade cost is ADDED to your total.
Weapon Tech 1 = 1d4, 1 Credit / 1 Ore (you deal 1d4 damage, refer to the dice chart FAQ below for more info) and the upgrade cost is ADDED to your total.
Warp Tech 1 = 1 Hex, 1 Credit / 1 Ore (you may move one hex from your current position) and the Upgrade cost is ADDED to your total.
Core System Tech 1 = 1-5, 1 Credit / 1 Ore (when taking damage, on 1d20 a roll of 1-5 will be a critical fail) and the Upgrade cost is ADDED to your total.

So, for a basic Frigate your TOTAL cost of a "all level 1 tech" ship would be 10 Credits, 10 Ore.

=====

We will now build the "maximum" tech'd Frigate we can under this tech tree.

Your BASE cost remains 5/5
Sensor has Tech Level 2, so you add 2/2 (you do NOT cumulatively add each level to build the Starship)
Hull, Weapon, and Core Systems are all Level 1. So 1/1 each adds 3/3 total
Warp Tech is Tech Level 3, so we add 3/3

Total Cost would be 13 Credits, 13 Ore.

However, as we mentioned. Even if you have tech level 3 warp, you might want some cost savings to build two Starships this turn instead of just one, so maybe you only Upgrade to level 2. You'd save 1 Credit and 1 Ore each to reduce that overall cost, sacrificing some of the units movement.

NOTE: It is ALWAYS cheaper to build the unit at its max tech capability, however it is possible to RETROFIT a Starship to a higher Tech Level after its built. However, there is an additional cost.

I know it may seem overwhelming but again, it looks worse than it really is.
I might make a tutorial or quick YouTube video later in the month to walk everyone through the process.

Sounds good, remember official sign ups are done via PM so as to keep secrets which clan is which faction / realm.

Is this still premium only? Fights are polymorphic?

It looks like you spent lot of time into it. And it looks like you did a great job, that looks really interesting.
On the other hand I also find it is too developed !
This may repel some clans/players. Not sure if LHDD will play, I don't have time to read all right now. ( I know sign up are supposed to be secret and I won't announce our decision here ;) )
I know you said it is easier than it seems. Such was also CR@W, a lot to read but relatively easy to play. But then I think only 2 players of my clan read all the rules of CR@W...

One question ( sorry if it is written). CR@W could be played by anyone. Will it be the same here or must we have one player register as leader to take the turns ?

A lot of the confusing stuff (ambushes) were made easier this year. I still have to clarify a lot of it (part of the 5% unfinished) but complexity is only slightly higher (but easily explained).

My goal is to do some sort of chat, or video, or something that makes it much easier for everyone to understand and get past the “only a few people understand what’s going on” problem, so that more clans can easily follow the event.

In answer to your question - anyone can still participate as leader here. The only difference because turns are automated is that I need to know who might take turns. I have to give them “permission” to make changes for your clan in the automated portion, instead of just regular view capabilities. But these permissions can get added / removed mid game to anyone that’s needed

I can testify that not only is this super interesting, but not that complicated once you read it. I would actually play this as a board game outside of CC.

In your FAQ section about ship building, you say that a ship costs 10/10 minimum, but I don't see any "core" in the race selection spreadsheet. Is this a mistake or ships also have a core upgrade that I don't know about?

Thank you :) This should be fun (I hope) and the Meta Map will take a bit of getting used to but GREATLY reduce management time (for me) and reduce legend and map errors (for you).

We are tweaking the last few things in the coding I don’t have exact ETA there but we are close to final testing for meta map :)

Anyway - regarding your question :oops: good catch! “Core System Tech” was another tech available throughout play testing phases and was a late deletion before I published. Bottom line was it wasn’t that important (or useful) and added unnecessary additional complixities to the rules and added (yet another) element of random that some/most play testers thought was unnecessary.

It was supposed to be removed, but I’ll make the edits to the FAQ this weekend. :) thanks!

Battle:
All battles need to have settings submitted with the action (IE: I attack the home world, here are my settings). If settings are not received within 24 hours of turn submission, NS C F will be used instead. It's encouraged to ALL clans to set up "default" settings for each player for each map, that way it expedites the whole battle process for everyone.

You sure know how to make a little ol hopper have a heart attack! Santa never gave me anything this special!
Now that oxygen is returning to my brain, how is it that you NEED to submit settings with the action, and then you have 24 hours after the action was submitted to submit settings (which needed to be submitted at the time of action submission)?

where can i find this trafalaxy map you speak of in fleet vs fleet battles?
how many times was this play tested?
what was the range of participating realms for play testing? will your map size change based on number of sign-ups?
which race won most often?
how often did my clan win?
what is the prize for most questions asked?
CR@W v1 won't end before sign-up deadline of Jan 7 - there will still be battles happening after the last turn update. do you want us to name the unnamed alien race now, or will it remain unnamed for the entirety of version 2?

Maybe you should be nicer to Santa :)
The 24 hours bit was added, because I envisioned there could be a case where someone was recently added to the game and hadn't submitted these types of things yet.
Basically, submit with the action or you'll get reminded. But there will only be so many reminders before I just start plugging NS C F. Its also there for scenarios that I didn't envision (just in case)

1. you can't (yet)
2. v2 or trafalaxy?
3. I'm not sure I follow the first part, can you clarify what you mean? map size is not expected to be changed, but if needed it will be considered. Part of the reason for the gap from sign up to start is that I will need to finalize map layouts based on sign ups, so thats something else that can be looked at depending on where we are at. The map is larger this year.
4. which do you think?
5. Your clan lost, every time. Uncanny!
6. a swift kick in the pants
7. It'll get named before we start one way or another

I'm still working on some clarifications, etc but people wanted to see it earlier, so its not 100% written out yet.

did you play test a version with a small amount of clans participating as well as a large amount of clans participating and a few options in between? i wondered if a small amount of participating would benefit from a smaller map, and a larger map for more clans.

did you play test a version with a small amount of clans participating as well as a large amount of clans participating and a few options in between? i wondered if a small amount of participating would benefit from a smaller map, and a larger map for more clans.


Ah, it was tested @ a variety of levels. (6-16 was tested, but most was in the 10-15 ish range) a variety of map sizes were used as well, should have a good idea what to expect unless we get a drastically low amount of sign ups. Then I’ll have to run some new #’s prior to us starting
