Some sort of assignable condition or terms of "surrender"(?) for the loser in a war level conflict. A reward for being victorious would not be a terrible thing so long as there is some way to throw it off or "rise again" to challenge your conquerer and throw off their yolk.

First though, what are win/lose determinations? Who decides what makes a victory and what a defeat?
Who decides? I do!

Since no one else will step up and try to place an objectove standard I am going to take this burden upon myself and play the role of referee here.

As a member of the Coalition and the only unaffiliated and truly fre and independent alliance right now, I think I am moat qualified to do so. Everyone else has too much bias.

What is your decision and what are you deciding?

A very old and slow raven delivers a message to Dominion Shipping Inc.

Flari,

The Aeonian League humbly apologizes for our previous false accusation of strip mining. The accusation was based upon confused and ultimately incorrect testimony. Additionally we apologize for the charge of illegal gathering as our posting was not particularly clear concerning our position. All charges have been dropped from our official records.

Sincerely,
Duffy Swiftshadow
Aeonian League Scribe

Much appreciated
Congrats on your victory last night and tonight. We are caught by surprise and you have victory as you deserve. For now…. smile

A barely perceptible smile at one corner of his mouth, Bringslite pushed the intercepted document back across the desk toward Apothos. "What exactly do these strange Southerners have against poor Flari, do you think"

"My Lord?" Apothos red face now also looked puzzled.

"Oh, some months ago, the Southerners accused Flari of violating some of their declared territory and called her down to rough her up in single combat. No trial, no defense, not even questioning her. Just published accusation and judgment of guilt. A very nice system of Law they have down there, despite their claims to a chapter of planned paladins.
"Now as I have discovered, they have also attacked two of her Holdings in the south, far clear of their lands"
Recounted Bringslite.

Obviously struggling with righteous indignation, Apothos next words were nevertheless controlled, "My Lord, surely this is an unprovoked act of war? Also what is this about an alliance with The Bandit Council? Surely we must not let this stand unanswered! When do we ride?"

Taking another sip of his Delicious Dominion Koolaide(available in all reputable auction houses everywhere), Bringslite set the goblet down and looked hard at Apothos before speaking
"Firstly, Priest Apothos, you know that I am not the person to bring this to. Nor am I the person that will give orders for any reaction to these deeds. Take this to The Triarchs.
"Secondly, this is not the first strange thing that we have seen them do or claim as knowledge.
"Third, rest assured that there will be a reckoning. Just do not assume that it will be immediate or anything that these strange Southerners will expect. Let us not speak further on this here. For all we know, they may have spies or diviners listening to us RIGHT NOW…."

Ok party poopers, no hope troopers, one way only scoopers! How about improving this freaking website? Get our "Guild" site linked through here and some features working here?

Get some real live "numbers traffic" in daily hts etc… Investors might be encouraged to see active game forums.

Edit: Noooooo! The new investors will want to have their ooooowwwnnnwn site for the gaaaaammmmeeee!

All of those sound really nice! I hadn't even thought about a big mumble gathering. Great Idea.

Course, if the game ever got big enough then you would just get a few big oligarchies monopolizing all the gold generating resources, not allowing anyone else to participate in anything that requires a coin expense and starve people out of the funding they would need to PvP them and strike back.

Ok, so maybe coin isnt such a good idea lol.
Yeah. Just like it gets completely monopolized in so many other sandboxes. Things can get taken over here and there. They can get held onto for a time. Things can be scammed and manipulated through scamming. If it lasts very long then your sandbox has more problems than how to effectively cost feuds…

Influence can be scammed.
Coin can be controlled by "Mega Devils".
Bulk Production can be taken over by ONE GIANT GUY with scammed Influence and "Mega Devil" paid for followers…

Let's see. What's left…. Hmm, I guess we can't make a game that can't be totally controlled by a Mega Giant Devil Bulk Stone Hoarder Guy.

Back to checkers….

What about having actual coin drains and allowing a company to feud a holding by fronting a large amount of coin, a portion of which is destroyed and a portion of which goes to the owner of the holding at the end of the feud- the victor.

Make the defender happy if the attacker no-shows, because of the profit, and allow anyone to grind up enough coin without a holding to attack one as one option.
+10 so long as that part where some of the coin vaporizes. Something similar to that is how DarkFall used to be.

Anyone interested in a New Year's Eve party and Event to celebrate this 2nd year of live game and the 3rd to come? What kinds of things could we do throughout the day and evening to make for some fun?
