  2. Actions are the main phase of the turn, each member of your guild can do one action. Some actions require or can be done with multiple amount of guild members at the same time.

  8. The 4 first missions on the list are labor missions: mining(strength), butchering(dextirity), farming(perception) and praying(Charisma) ("praying" will be regarded as labor for the sake of this explanation). The labors will be available only as long as there are not too many threats surrounding the city. Once choosing a labor you will get an amout of the resource relevant to that labor equivalent to a random number between the amount of relevant ability in your party to 2 times the amount. So for example: If you have 10 members in your party with a total amount of 20 perception and you go farming you will likely get an amount of Crops between 20 to 40.
  9. 2) Eliminating a threat mission:
  10. *To fulfill a Threat mission you must set up a party lead by a guild member with the rank of "Guild Leader" or the rank of "Captain".

  17. The distance of a mission determines how many special events and encounters will happen along the way. Those events and encounters will be solved for the better by a skilled and diverse party. The personality of the party leader also makes up a difference on the outcome of these special events.
  18. The direction of the mission gives you a general idea on what to expect. -

  24. 2) Expand territory
  25. --
  26. The game map shows which territory is influence by which guild, every guild has a distinct colour defining it. You can expand upon the current influencial territory that you own by sending a guild member with the rank of ''Courtier'' Or with the rank of ''Guild Leader'' to make this action. For each guild member that you send you can expand upon additional 3 tiles for the cost of 10 influence. (So if you sent 2 courtiers - you can expand on 6 new tiles for 20 influence).
  27. *You can only expand over tiles that aren't influenced by any other guild (white tiles on the map).
  28. *If you want to expand over tiles that belong to another guild you will have to make an ''Aggresive action --> Attack another guild'' against that guild (this will initiate battle). The winning guild will be able to expand over the territory of the other guild freely for 3 turns.
  29. *Each 3 of the expansion tiles must be adjacent to each other and adjacent to the current territory under your guild's influence.(same as the expansion rules at endless legend).

There can never be two guilds controlling over the same status (can't be two guilds who are "sentinels" for example at the same time). So when one guild bids influence for a political status which is already occupied by another guild it effectively deposes that guild from power and takes its place. The "price" of each political status rises by 20 influence each time a guild bids for it.
  74. You may use one of the special abilities attached to your political status once per turn as a free action. You can't use your political status special ability at the same turn that you acquire that political status.

If you fail while aggresing another guild you will be caught and be punished according to the law. There are 2 types of ways to aggress another guild by a rogue-ish way:
  112. 1) Steal gold from another guild: To attempt this action you must send a party of guild members lead by a member with the rank of "Agent". Each member at the party will make a roll based on its steal skill, if even 1 member fails and gets caught the entire operation fails for everyone.
  113. 2) Sabotage influence: : To attempt this action you must send a party of guild members lead by a member with the rank of "Agent". Each member at the party will make a roll based on its steal skill, if even 1 member fails and gets caught the entire operation fails for everyone.
  114. 3) Steal resource: Choose the type of resource that you want to steal from the other guild.*mechanically works similiar to sabotage and steal*

  118. 9) Barter at the market:
  119. --
  120. By sending a member with a rank of courtier to the market you can sell or buy resources at the market(the prices will be presented in a DM post before the turn starts). Note that the price may change as you interact with the market. For example if you sell 20 Ore to the market for the price of 25 each, the price may drop to 24 after you sold 10 ore and that means the next 10 ore pieces will be sold at 24 igold nstead of 25. The price may change several times while you buy/sell. There is a real economy formula DM is using to manage the prices which is based on the city needs and the amount in stock. If you uncover the formula and play your hand right you just might control the economy of the city. Note that the economy is governed by the city laws, so sometimes the laws will not allow the market to operate or only allow it to a limit, keep checking and manipulating the city market policies to gain an advantage over others.

  123. 10) Start a rebellion:
  124. --
  125. If you have influencial control over a tile neighboring the palace(the middle of the map) You can start a rebellion for the cost of 50 influence. Rebellion means you are aiming to depose the current crownguild and replace him with yourself. This will generate a war event between all the guilds in the city who will have the choice to pick sides and either support the rebellion in the war or support the current ruler against the rebellion, or simply sit by and do nothing. If there is no current ruler - the first guild to pay 50 influence will simply become the first crownguild and the ruler.
  126. However the happiness of the city may also change the tide of the war.
  127. > If the city is currently "Happy" then 20 commoners will join the ruler's side.
  128. > If the city is currently "Content" then 10 commoners will join the ruler's side.
  129. > If the city is currently "Poor" then 10 commoners will join the rebelling side.
  130. > If the city is currently "Miserable" then 20 commoners will join the rebelling side.
  131. If you did win the rebellion then you depose the former crownguild and become the new one.

  141. 12) Do something else:
  142. --
  143. This is where your own imagination comes into play. Invent your own action, as long as this action could be translated into game mechanics I will accept it and make it happen in game. make sure you describe you action well enough to understand. Also, don't try to get overpowered by using this option or try bypassing the laws currently established in the city, because I will not let this happen. This option is not recommended for until you are familliar with the game mechanics.
