GM Announcements

Post by scorpion » 13:01:40 Wednesday, 23 March, 2016

Completed territorial adjustments on map in following areas; british isles,hispania,western europe and the Italian peninsula. Still have some additions to the guide to implement, and stat adjustments. Making good time so far, so the game is likely to be up by april 1st, or within that week.

Stats are mostly finished. Still a few odd ones and a couple details to add. Eastern Europe is mostly finished on the map.

Africa and the Middle East Remain

Italy is my last hurdle before getting the firs turn out, as the situation there is tricky. After a long time thinking about how to represent the struggle between the Ghibelline & Guelph forces, I've opted to place the Italian city states involved, on the map & in the stats under their respective sides. Some of these city States fall in the opposing sides zone of influence. So in those provinces, I'm thinking I will represent the conflict of interest by adding 'diagonal lines' across the province the city is in. These will be painted the opposite factions color.

I finished plotting the vast majority of these cities tonight. Looking to finish it up Thursday night, and possibly have the first turn out then.

Happy to say first turns are out!! Map is up! will have a city Key up sometime this weekend regarding the ones that have physically been placed on the map. Decided, as in the past, If you have any cities you want added to the map, let me know. However they do not have to be on the map to exist in the game. Map is more for ease of use purposes.

On a side note, since it has been awhile since a scorp bop has been played, I just want to make everyone aware that your armies in this are not as disposable as they are in Standard bop. Take care when it comes to getting in a fight, make sure its worth it.


Each turn players will see units available swell, so do not worry about low numbers of recruit-able units atm.

Just want to announce that during this first turn, players are allowed to disperse their original troops to whichever new garrisons they create without regard to land/sea movement spaces. This will allow the game to go on as if players were in control during the years prior to 1274 as well. Also because I could not accurately determine troop placement without an exhaustible amount of extra research which may have played little part in the long run.

A few more things I'd like to address quickly.

The Turn pm we are on now does say 'Summer 1274AD' however the actions each of you are conveying in your pm's take place in the Fall months. As the news for Summer 1274 has already been pre-written. In Turn 2 I will adress the turn as Winter 1274AD so any confusion regarding that does not occur. It was an oversight on my part and I apologize.

Secondly, It has been brought to my attention that in some cases, Fleet prices may be unreasonably high. A fleet consists of 5 Ships in this, so what I am going to do, is rather than take orders by fleets, I'm going to bust it down to single ships, that can be organized like your armies. All this will do is change it in the stats to show individual ships, instead of fleets. And change the costs so that the recruitment of them is more accessible in the 3 month span of each turn.

To figure out the price of a ship, simply divide the current price by 5. I will have those prices all changed over to individual ships for next turn.

So i Have 4 of the turn 2 Turns. Would like to see more come in, but processing will begin.

Also I have to remove Aegis from the HRE spot for now due to inactivity.

Again apologies for the delay in the 1274 turn. I have all turns that I've been given done. just some news editing, and map editing left to do. However that may not be done until next week as I am in the process of filling out 2 large background packets for two different police departments(The hiring phase has been interrupting my time quite a bit). So a lot of my time home is going to them. Once they are handed in i expect to have my time back.
