Why do you 'like' this game?

Interesting, rarely used setting (early 20th Century)
Good mix of strategy and management gameplay, but with simple rules
Semi-freeform diplomacy (and backstabbings!)
All of the above
I'm just forum game addict and gotta play'em all

Era of Diesel: Discussion Thread! On hiatus.
« on: October 01, 2014, 02:22:30 pm »

Yes, another landgrab game. Using my knowledge of Risk and Master of Orion, as well as having my own 'landgrab' games aaaand peeking at some ideas from Azkanan's game, I've decided to make this abomination, set in early 20th century. There will be railroads, tanks, construction and research, while you and your neighbours duke it out in bloody wars.

Here is IC Thread!

Combat refers to a combat roll, and so do most other things, but I don't think it's ever mentioned what that roll actually is.

Name: Lototzka
Leader's Name: Acting President Alexander Mierkov (Kashyyk)
Government Type: Monarchy
Traits (Points left): Huge, Developed, Militaristic, Enlightened  (1)
Capital Province #: 28
National Color: #FF8000
History: Our glorious leader, Alexander Mierkov, is the grandson of the great and glorious Pieter Mierkov, President of Lototzka. When President Pieter was nearing old age, he realised that he would not be around to care for his nation foever, so he had himself put into hibernation so that when Lototzka's hour greatest need arrived, he could lead us to glory. Until that time, his son and now grandson have ruled in his name.

Name: Vastrinascht Dominion
Leader's Name: Adrian Raimond (Taricus)
Government Type: Dictatorship
Traits (Points left): Big, Medieval, Mediocre Military, Industrial Power, Militaristic (0)
Capital Province #: 10
National Color: Cyan
History: A former monarch, The Dominion in it's current form was instituted after the professional military revolted and overthrew the previous government. The nation itself, while boasting innumerable amounts of factories, has little in the way of development outside the capital in part of the policies of the dynasts. Though the recent waves of nationalism and militarism has meant that while the nation is underdeveloped and it's forces are equipped with obsolete weapons it still can barely compete with most other nations.

Of course, with the new regime in place, one that has designs within and without, means that the underdeveloped nation could quite soon throw itself up into the ranks of the contemporary nations.

Name: The great Maritime Country, Etrosaea!
Leader's Name: Willian Saddler (Ochita)
Government Type: Dictatorship
Traits (Points left): Medium size, Enlightened, Numerous army, Developed (0)
Capital Province #: 57.
National Color: Red!
History: Etrosaea was a nation that grew and ebbed on its sea trade, until some 80 years ago when the previous monarchy changed into a Dictatorship, when those who felt like conservative thinking would lead the nation into decline over the rapidly increasing technological advances being ignored by the noble family. The newly forged dictatorship encouraged the growth of technology, and started to set up an infrastructure that would provide the room for more advancement. Clearly all it now needs is to increase its size and the country will flourish.. Even if it means having to take some other countries space, well. So be it.
