    A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE DIPLOMACY

    How to Diplomacy

    Outlaw is credit to team (open)
    Diplomacy is game about making alliances, breaking alliances, and reforming old alliances to better your number of supply centers in the game. Playing the deaf mute will only get you so far before another country decides you are not worth the spaces you comprise of and crushes you for your land. You have to negotiate with other nations if you want to win. You must tell the whole truth and nothing but it while lying through your teeth to succeed in this game. Feelings will be hurt and grudges will be formed. Friends can be enemies, and enemies can be friends. Make your stab and pray it doesn't backfire.

    A player is eliminated from the game when they no longer control any supply centers. Alternatively, a player can choose to forfeit (But that is lame and sissy and I will make sure you are made fun of for it!). This will leave his/her pieces on the board where they will hold or idle during every turn. Victory is achieved by a single player controlling 18 of the 34 supply centers OR if all of the remaining players agree to a tie. Diplomacy has 3 phases. Since this is online, you can talk to other nations any time you wish. The game begins in Spring of the year 1901 where you issue your first orders. After that turn is Fall 1901 and you issue your second round of orders. And finally the year ends in Winter 1901 where you either add or subtract to your total number of supply centers and in turn your army depending on how many you captured or lossed in Fall. Then the year begins anew with Spring 1902.

    Even though this is a game of Diplomacy, you are never required to honor any promises you made to any nation. You are always out for yourself.


    additional rules (open)
    1. No deadtalking, screenshotting, and other things that would be defined as "cheating" by anyone with an ounce of common sense.

    2. There are formal alliances in this game. Alliances may contain up to three players. Players in an alliance can only win if they meet the win condition for an alliance of that many players. You can enter or leave an alliance at any time, but any time you change your alliance status, you cannot win for the next 2 turns(I mean one year). Alliances are public knowledge.

    3. Win conditions:
    -Solo player: own 15 supply points and own 2 more than any other one player at the end of a turn.
    -2 player alliance: own 24 supply points between you.
    -3 player alliance: own 33 supply points between you.
    If two teams (or a team and a solo player) meet their win conditions on the same turn, keep playing until only one group is winning.

    4. If you are curious about anything ASOIAF/GoT related, or what the abbreviations stand for on the map, ask Walrein. He knows way too much about this series.

    5. Realize that this is a game, chill out, and have fun. Ignore the fact that I still want to strangle Agape because of last diplomacy. Do as I say, not as I do.

    6. Since ASOIAF has weird-ass seasons, Spring will be "beginning of the year", Autumn will be "middle of the year", and Winter will be "end of the year". Yes, this is kinda lame, but it's the only thing that makes sense. changed my mind

    7. Retreats will happen after every "Spring" and "Fall", not during "Winter"


    IRC IS MANDATORY FOR THIS GAME. The official channel is #westeros.

    ugh so many posts

    SPECIAL CASES FOR ALLIANCES:
    -If players agree to form a three-way alliance, but one person fails to send the PM, the other two will become a two-way alliance.

    -If player Z attempts to form a three-way alliance with X and Y, but X and Y only include Z in their alliance PMs, whoever of X and Y sent their PM first will become a two-way alliance with Z.

    Ignore the new shadings on the map, supply center's don't transfer until after "Fall".

    Speaking of the map, Empoof's redoing it to make it look much less like shit, so please don't yell at me for sucking at GIMP :(

    Hey, I got lazy and didn't label the landmasses.

    http://i.imgur.com/CfkBNJj.jpg

    If you want to check it out on the forum (open)
    [​IMG]

    I stole every image on there. Also apparently imgur decided that changing my png into a jpg was a good idea, but don't worry i have the original xcf (gimp) file so i can make it look sharper when I finish.

    I'll label the landmasses either right now or tomorrow, but for now you can just crossreference from the original map if you need the acronym.

    Also, potential allies, consider that I now have a pretty large understanding of the map :D

    EDIT: oh and tomorrow includes cropping out most of the distracting cities and putting on supply centers

    Lannisters have a starting supply center in SAR. Other than that, that's a hell of a map, thanks a ton :)

    I wasn't obviously bias when i started at the top then just wanted to get some done so i went to the bigger section in the bottom where i am <_<

    I'm lazy and didn't finish labels, but that should be enough to look at for builds and shit.
    Lemme know if i forgot Quagsires supply centers on purpose.

    I'm being kidnapped and dragged out to dinner, so deadline is extended until I get back.

    This is your only chance to get builds in, Quagsires.
