Third Age DaC 4.6 - The Rise of Gondor - A Succession Game
« on: October 03, 2021, 10:51:36 am »

The Rise of Gondor
A Community Succession Game

We are Gondor!
Our lands stretch from Mordor to the Western Sea, our fiefs remain unstricken by any machinations of the Dark Lord and vivid is the light of Minas Tirith, the Tower of Guard that shines brightly in us all.
The flame of Númenor still burns in our hearts when we see the White City, and pride still blooms in those that march to the defense of the West.
Our blood keeps other lands safe from the depredations of Mordor, and, with its full weight fixed upon us, we hold our lines and know our wars are not for nothing, yet, ever still, we bleed.

Much has been lost of our Kingdom, much that once was, and we weep for it.
No blossom upon the White Tree, where the Fountain Court keeps its watch, and the Stewards have fought without relent, to retain what was once the flower of the Kings of Númenor.
The blood runs thin amongst our people - only in few lives the legacy of Númenor, and middle-man is weaker than ever.

Secret despair feeds our dreams, yet we do not count it during the waking hours - for the light keeps the cowardice of the Orc from our walls and the White City shines still, even as it slowly crumbles.
Its defenses are undermanned, but indeed we still have much faith in the strength of man and stone.
Strong walls and brazen gates are our defense, even if our forces fail, and surely the Red Arrow and the beacons - both or either will bring the old alliance with the Horse Lords of Rohan to a tumult, and they will ride to our aid.
With the forces of the Southern Fiefs, the mainstay of our army and Rohan's bright riders, how can we truly let go of our hope, for it is what sustains us in these bleak times.

All is not lost, and we are mightier than many think or even many know yet.
My heart swells to see our strident grace Lord, and the men drink with cheer at the sight of the Steward of Gondor!
Could we break the lines of Mordor, crush the advances of the Southrons and burn Umbar? We could do more than that with hope, the steel of our hearts and the leadership of a great man.
In old walked Dúnedain; giants among men, but that does not mean our backs are less straight, that our hearts are less courageous, and that we are doomed by the failing of simple blood.
Take us to our destiny, Steward of Gondor lead us to WAR!!

Welcome to Rise of Gondor, a new succession game for Third Age Total War - Divide and Conquer. We play as the Kingdom of Gondor, long fallen into disrepair despite the efforts of the Steward Denethor, and we will attempt to fulfill the campaign victory conditions of eliminating Mordor, Harad, and the Ar-Ardunaim. The Save will be passed along from player to player, each playing 5 in-game turns (number of turns may be changed as the game progresses). There will be an honor system of trusting players enough to not cheat, but please refrain from using the console window.

Feel free to sign up for a turn down below, the list of players will be kept tracked here:

Eh it's been awhile since I've played Gondor, I'll go ahead and take a turn.
We shall make the highest quality of quality quantities of soldiers with quantities of quality.
