Default Warsim: The Realm of Aslona (Procedurally generated kingdom management RPG)

December 16th, 2019, 13:26
Hello everyone,

So I got this update done early last week, I just haven't had the chance to put it out until now. It's not a major update but several little parts of the game have been worked on and a couple of bugs have been fixed.

DRINKING OVERSIGHT

In a playtest where I had no gold I ended up getting drunk and ending up into minus gold, then realised no tavern drinking code had a check to see if you had the gold first, now they all do and a few other bugs were discovered and fixed during this process!

* Fixed all taverns not having checks for if you have the gold
* Added inaccessible option change if you cant afford drinks in taverns
* Fixed ale without a name in one of the taverns
* Fixed exotic ale store allowing purchase with no gold
* Fixed shaian tavern selling ale for 1 gold but taking 2 gold from you when you buy it

EVERYTHING ELSE

Doesn't fit anywhere else but Looker845 from steam pointed out it would be much better to have the explore milestone give you a bonus explore point and not count as an explore used, otherwise it doesn't actually do anything as you gain a point but lose it having explored to find the stone.

* Changed white milestone explore encounter to give 1 additional explore chance (credit Looker845)

Hello everyone,

So no combat update this friday and I won't be releasing an update until the first friday of the new year but instead here's something I've worked on this week!

Mods! I've wanted to do this for a while and decided it would be a nice idea as a gift to the Warsim community for Christmas!

Warsim - Mount and Blade Warband Mod

Here's an album showing off this mod - https://imgur.com/a/dtTTtQR

I spent a lot of time with this one as I'm a serious mount and blade fan. The player is a small faction at neutral with the main kingdoms of the mount and blade world (minus the vaegirs). The mod gives you full troop trees, each faction uses denars, all the leaders and major lords, mercenary companies and relevant bandit factions.

Perfect for a mount and blade fan! Beware though as the kingdoms of Calradia are pretty tough out of the gate.

Warsim - Skyrim Mod

The development of this mod began with one of the weirdest coincidences I've ever had in Warsim. I had pre-chosen where the main factions were going to go, first the Imperials, then Stormcloaks, etc. As I got to edit the faction names in the save file I saw that the second faction which was going to be Ulfrics factions was aptly randomly named Thumm (like Thuum, the name for the way of the voice in skyrim).

https://i.imgur.com/MEswxJ3.png

It was definitely a sign to ensure I dropped the best mod I could make!

Here's an album showing off the skyrim mod - https://imgur.com/a/idHxXKk

The mod sets you as Jarl Balgruuf of Whiterun, with your staff being Proventius and Irileth. The world is made up of two major factions, the Imperials and the Stormcloaks (Imperials have more land, stormcloaks have more units), but also includes the College of Winterhold, The Forsworn, and the Thalmor as smaller main factions.

There are also bandits and mercenary groups relevant to the game, each faction uses septims as their currency and troop trees are all sorted. Faction relations were also fairly finely tweaked so that it makes sense who is fighting who.

Warsim - Uberhard Mod

This one is more just a challenge, the races of this world were specifically selected to be tough and are started with enlarged populations. Behemoth Trolls, Colossal Godlings, Titan Vampires, Nightmare Ogres, and Deatheater Wizards.

Good luck!

Where to play?

All of these mods should be loadable as save files from the latest updated version of the game on steam and itch.io!

I hope you all enjoy and have a great holiday period, and thank you all for the support in developing this game, it really means a lot!

Cheers

Huw

This has taken me a few days but I've managed to pack together 100 features and bugfixes in this update as a nice final update before Christmas. There are lots of little changes and improvements in this update and I'm excited to release them. I want to thank everyone for the awesome support this last year and I hope everyone has a good Christmas.

INTRODUCTIONS IMPROVED

After adding a lot of content with tons of variation and detail I figured why not the introductory ceremony to the game, something pretty much everyone sees should be laid out better and should have a bit more variation. Now the new ceremonies are much more random and informative.

* Fixed black bank deposit and withdrawal allowing infinite money (credit u/jjlf40)

DWARF FORTRESS MOD

Oh right and forgot to mention above, the great response to the other mods got me thinking, and given that both skyrim and mount and blade were great inspirations why not a mod honouring Dwarf fortress, a game which definitely was a great influence to Warsim. So here it is:

You play as a ruler called King Urist McYou and rule a small humble kingdom with a little population and territorial holding.

The Kingdoms you share the world with are - https://i.imgur.com/hcsroFp.png

* The Kingdom of Bronzemurder (Bronze Dwarves) - https://i.imgur.com/25wJqTA.png
* The Creation of Ferns (Elite Dwarves)
* Glazedcoast (Stupid Dwarves) - https://i.imgur.com/Nzmdh70.png
* The Kingdom of Boatmurdered (White Dwarves)
* The Field of Kindling (Cannibal Elves) - https://i.imgur.com/IzARnMi.png

The Creation of Ferns is somewhat of an anomaly being a dwarf kingdom ruled by an Elf - https://i.imgur.com/9sF8jRc.png

There are also 5 bandit groups - https://i.imgur.com/R7Y8a40.png

And several mercenary groups such as The Pit Dwarves led by Urist McKhur the Lost. - https://i.imgur.com/9tTSPTZ.png

You have a great group of staff to help you rule the realm. - https://i.imgur.com/TP11f4S.png

I've tried to honour Dwarf fortress as best as I can with the mod.

You will find the mod in your saves folder, just load the save called DFMOD.

I'd like also to welcome the hundreds of new people who have picked up Warsim this week during the christmas sale! Thank you for the support and welcome to the community.

Merry Christmas / Happy Holidays to you all

Cheers

16K SALES CELEBRATION

Hello everyone, so this update is something of a celebration for me and Warsim as I can happily (having checked steams recently updated rules that allow devs to talk numbers) announce that Warsim has sold over 16,000 copies on steam finally since it's entrance to the platform in June 2017.

I could never have imagined this would ever transpire and honestly want to thank every single person who contributed to that number and has the game in their steam library, it's not easy for a game that runs through a console and uses a purely text based visage to do well when competing with tens of thousands of games with flashy graphics but I'm glad we've been able to carve a place out here.

To celebrate I set myself a goal of making 160 feature and bugfix changes for an update and have finally today managed to complete it, that's only 1 feature per 100 copies sold but it's the best I can do

All jokes aside I am honored the game has done this well and hope it will continue along this path. I'm not stopping working on Warsim until I can complete a good number of major promised features as get it out of early access! (even post-ea I don't plan to stop with Warsim updates)

THE UPDATE

This update rather than having one single focus has many areas of improvement in different directions, now I plan to finish scrubbing through my immediate list of stuff that's accumulated over the holiday period before returning to combat update development!

COMBAT ACADEMY EXPANDED (17 features)

What started as a small suggestion by Fox from steam and a bug report by u/CanadianWolverine from reddit ended up as four hours of work reworking the combat academy. Now you can upgrade it, learn more about it, train heroes and champions instead of just your grand champion, and many bugs fixed!

* Added combat academy upgrade screen to main menu if you own the academy
* Fixed Combat academy champion training bug if your champion is too strong (credit u/CanadianWolverine)
* Fixed no grand champion to train text saying your arena is too small when it could also be due to prev champion being hired or assasinated (credit u/CanadianWolverine)
* Rewrote train your champion text to show the max it can be trained to which is 299 (credit u/CanadianWolverine)

* Fixed gold is taken from you training at the combat academy even if you can't afford it

CHELOB REVISITED AGAIN (5 features)

So I didn't consider just how difficult Chelobs well riddle is, and for some without an internet connection it's actually impossible. Well no more, I've altered the questions to less difficult but still tough ones that are much more do-able and also fixed a couple of issues I came across while here.

* Fixed 5 text bugs in chelobs text
* Fixed line and colour issues in chelob questions (credit Etalyx Stream)
* Reworked final questions of chelobs to be NON-META
* Made it clearer on previous questions that they are numerical (credit Etalyx Stream)
* Updated final chelob screen to show where he goes next

ANOINTING REWORKED (3 features)

The ability to anoint a grand champion in the arena is pretty cool but who can spare 2500 gold for that, not me. I decided to nerf this in both cost and effect. Also when doing it the game will now tell you what you've actually done with the name change and battlescore improvement.

* Made anointing the grand champion cost 250 instead of 2500 but gives +5 battlescore instead of +25
* Updated anoint champion throne room encounter to follow the above
* Added new indicator of gold loss and battlescore and name change during champion anoint ceremony

ASSASSIN CHANGES (4 features)

After watching Etalyx's stream I noticed some issues with the assassin screens, now they have been improved.

* Reworked assassin encounter in throne room so that hire option is more clear about it leading you to another menu (credit Etalyx Stream)
* Added new screen for refusing assasination after inquiring about it in throne room (credit Etalyx Stream)
* Reworked text for outright refusing assasination in throne room (credit Etalyx Stream)

THRONE ROOM ENCOUNTERS (2 features)

A pair of new throne room encounters, gonna try and keep adding to these every now and then to ensure freshness and more variety.

* Added new throne room encounter 'Midas the Dog' (super rare)
* Added 'coin waving boy' throne room encounter

TROOP SENDING IMPROVED (5 features)

Although this may be altered a little in the combat update for now it's pretty bad when sending troops yourself as the screens are badly set lone text which is quickly become out of character for the game. Now they have their own screens including some new images for knights and demons as well as seeing the faces of the independent race creatures you're sending off.

* Added new custom screen for choosing to send the troops yourself
* Added new knight graphic for selecting knights to send to battle
* Added new demon graphic for selecting demons to send to battle
* Added new screen for selecting independent race creatures to send to battle
* Added new screen for sending personal champions to battle

* Added new unit type - Plank-Swinger
* Added new unit type - Logtosser
* Added new unit type - Bonewielder

BANDIT SCOURGE REWORKED (2 features)

After thinking about this law for a bit I realised that paying 20 gold for a bandit to be imprisoned is actually quite a lot considering peasants can be significantly cheaper, I've lowered it to 5 gold per head and updated the text in the declaration screen to explain it better.

* Added a new bandit scourge declaration text
* Made bandit scourge cost 5 gold per bandit instead of 20 gold

MORE CRIME (12 features)

That's right, more crime! A lot of people were getting tired of having so many bad guards and innocent people being brought forward, well turns out the odds of getting an innocent person brought forward were higher than a guilty one, this has now been dropped to just a quarter with a lot more reactions for being guilty added to fill the content void!

* Added new criminal guilt reaction 'Damn, you've got me'
* Added new criminal guilt reaction 'It was my twin'

Hello everyone, so I'm putting this update out as I'm going away for a few days and won't be able to reply or work on the game at all. It's been hard work but there are a ton of things in this update that nicely improve the game, I am in such a rush I can't even make screenshots for the changelog so you'll have to see the changes yourself!

Will be back as normal by next week!

DEMON GATE INTRO (4 features)

I figured discovering the demonic gate should be a special moment in game so I've tried to expand it a little.

* Added unique version of intro text if you are a demonic agent
* Added unique version of intro text if demonic horde is dead
* Added demon gate location name is changed to be less conspicuous until discovered

DEATH TO THE MAD KING (6 features)

The mad king is one of the possible game starts you can have, being the mad kings child offers the ability to speak to or release the mad king but no option to end it all and finish him off, now I've added it with a little bit of randomisation to how it goes including a rare random event.

* Added new mad king question (pulled out at random when talking to him)
* Added ability to execute the mad king
* Added ability to ask about the mad king
* Added 6 random reactions from mad king to being brought for execution
* Added special secret event that can happen as a result of mad king execution
* Added two slightly different alternatives to what you do just before he is killed

BLACKMARKET CONQUEST REWORKED (9 features)

Taking over the Blackmarket offers little prompt or information about what you've done, well now you get a comprehensive introduction to your new market with a number of recomended options, such as giving a speech or hiring someone to give a speech to your new subjects. Taking a tour of your new land, and filling the garrison with troops. As well as a new possible and stackable market boom event that can be triggered by certain aspects of these features.

* Added new screen following capture of the Blackmarket that allows you to do numerous things
* Added new prompt to fill the garrison post blackmarket capture
* Added new prompt to give a speech to the blackmarket post capture

* Added ability to hire best crier to give speech (2 possible outcomes) (costs 150 gold)
* Added ability to give speech yourself and choose your motive (Kind, Cruel, Ominous, Threatening)
* Added ability to be taken on quick tour of your new market
* Added ability for market boom event that can be triggered which increases blackmarket income by 10x

ITEM DISCOVERY IN THE THRONE ROOM (25 features)

These item discovery encounters grow your treasury by the value of the item from a list of 60, the encounters are rarer the lower your public opinion is and there's also a very small chance that the item is some kind of illusionary trick. I have made sure they aren't super frequent but they should be completely randomly generated meaning even I can't predict what will happen, could make for some very interesting random throne room events that no one else has seen but you!

* Added ability to read spy reports from previous year (credit u/WoodenNickelDealer)

REPARATIONS REBALANCED (18 features)

Fox from steam pointed out that the reparations are quite unbalanced and can frequently be very high, I've decided to try and add balance and generally have lowered the cost of all reparations, though there is still random chance of many of them being high as the world is random!

Hello Everyone, so this update comes at a big time! We have three things all colliding on this date: Hitting 1500 subscribers on the subreddit, The Steam Lunar Sale, And the Vassal update!

**THE LUNAR SALE**
-

Warsim is now 40% off on steam for the Lunar sale, now most if not all of the people reading the changelog on this sub already have the game and have seen it on sale many times before but as always if you don't have it nows the time, and if you know anyone who might like it!

I'm also always open for ideas on places to share or post the update/sale/or game in general, the internet is a broad place and the majority of the people there are not going to be Warsim players, but some might and I'm always up for finding them

THE VASSAL UPDATE

This is primarily an update of the vassal system but there are still 109 additional features and bugfixes alongside the vassal stuff so lots of new stuff to dig in to!

**VASSAL UPDATE (131 Total features)**

Vassals, the result of having great strength in the game but really not the strongest of features beyond it's symbolism. This update plans to change that and make vassals much more interactive as well as the process of getting them.

**LOOSE VASSAL UPDATE ITEMS (7 features)**

* Added all vassals have same actions you have with allies
* Fixed text colour and spacing of pre-existant vassal text
* Added ability to take 0 tribute gold from vassal (Credit Defender)
* Added relation boost and special text at end of turn if taking no tribute from vassal
* Added new clarification screen in vassal attack (Credit u/videovillain)
* Added a vassalisation randomised cooldown (3-18 years) once a kingdom rebels or gains independence from you
* Made it only possible to attempt to vassalise a kingdom once per year (used to be infinite stupidly)

**VASSAL REVOLTS (5 features)**

Treat your vassals bad and they will eventually revolt against you, how you deal with this is up to you!

* Added warning event when vassal is on the verge of revolt (6 dynamic responses depending on leader personality) (credit u/RabidRab)
* Added ability for vassal to revolt if relation drops below 0
* Added ability to accept vassal revolt independence (6 dynamic responses depending on leader personality)
* Added ability to reject vassal revolt independence and declare war (6 dynamic responses depending on leader personality)
* Added sound effects for vassal revolts (different sounds peace and war)

**OFFER OF VASSALISATION (48 features)**

The offer of vassalisation previously was just one of two single lines of text based on a small relation and leader type based dice roll. You either got 'Our kingdom will burn before joining you', or 'KingdomLeader accepts'. Now that has been replaced with a large and dynamic system that allows you to choose an emissary to deliver such news as well as a much more complex system that decides on the outcome of the attempt with a fair bit of randomness dashed in. You can have coin flips, dead emissaries, preposterous offers, and lots more turning this once single line of information into a part of the game in its own right!

* Added breakdown of the factors of success for attempting vassalisation
* Added chance modifiers for having significantly larger than enemy in vassilisation attempt (credit u/ShengjiYay)

**COMBAT ACADEMY FIXES (2 features)**

Got to this one before it was inevitably requested, having to go back and set to train your champions each year is a pain, this allows you to see them to autotrain like other staff.

* Added ability to autotrain combat academy champions if you own the place
* Added anyone with 299 or more skill gets auto training cancelled

**FACTION RELATION SCREEN IMPROVED (4 features)**

The faction relations screen has gone from being a pretty bad and tucked away feature to a much more easily usable and referenceable tool. Now while speaking to a faction you can check and see what their relations are to all other factions but also they are now colour marked so you can tell by the red and green who the allies and enemies are. You might not know this but all factions have a relationship web so this tool helps you see that the Krut actually have an alliance with those Deformed Swamp Ogres.

* Added ability to check any factions relations with others in diplomacy if you have a diplomat
* Fixed Krut and Erak relation in faction relations screen uses rebel relation
* Added colours to faction relations screen (spectrum depending on relation)

Saw it and thought I could improve it a lot better. Now it has sound effects and some of them (the teeth and eyes) are quite gross.

* Added ability to slice head in two in torture chamber
* Added more blood for certain torture moves

* Added new screen for reaction to getting vampire bard guess game right (5 reactions)
* Added new screen for reaction to getting vampire bard guess game wrong (5 reactions)

**BANDS OF MEN TO FIGHT THE DEMONS (5 features)**

There is an encounter triggered when the demon horde is active where a warrior brings a random number of soldiers to your court to join you, usually between 3 and 30 free soldiers and it's a moderately common encounter, well now it's been improved and expanded.

* Made encounter show exactly how many troops there are before accepting them
* Added new throne room encounter 'Strongest men in the village band'
* Added new throne room encounter 'Pit fighters band'
* Added new throne room encounter 'The fighting people of a small island'
* Added new throne room encounter 'Ex-mercenary band'

**NORTHERN MERC POST IMPROVED (4 features)**

* Added screen for capturing north merc post in battle (credit u/TheGamingDictator)
* Added new dynamic graphic screens for hiring units from north merc post (credit u/TheGamingDictator)
* Added new screens showing how much you can afford from north merc post (credit u/TheGamingDictator)

**QUEST LOCATION SYSTEM**

So while this is only one thing I think it deserves its own section, u/AHedgeKnight came to me with a massive list of parts for location names and suggested making them completely randomly generated, now the quest location system has gone from having 45 unique different locations, to 6000+ randomly generated ones!

* Added new quest location generator (6000+ locations possible instead of 45) (credit u/AHedgeKnight)

Warsim 0.7.8.9 (Exploration Events, Difficulty Expanded and more, 126 Features and Fixes)

EXPLORATION DIVERSIFIED (63 features)

I was honestly so close to dismissing this idea and deleting it from my notes to get more important stuff done but I sat there and thought, this would be so cool and would improve the exploration feature a good bit and so I ended up spending three days working on it!

NEW ENCOUNTERS (43 Features)

Previously the game would pick some generic encounters to pop up while you explored, whether you were exploring the deep southern demon lands, the western woods, or the savage north, you'd get the same encounters. Now there are a huge number of new and mostly dynamic encounters that you may get while exploring each of these regions. Some of them are inconsequential and others are good fun!

* Added old frozen corpse encounter found in wild north and far north (with sfx)
* Added frozen corpse found in wild north and far north (with sfx)
* Added bare froze corpse found in wild north and far north (with sfx)
* Added small ditch satchel of gold explore encounte (5-15 gold)
* Added bloated satchel of gold in a stick pile explore encounter (300-900 gold)
* Added harsh cold wind event (all of the north) (with sfx)
* Added coastal breeze event (south coast only) (with sfx)
* Added harsh desert wind event (farrad only) (with sfx)

* Added skull with arrow in it encounter (found in drylands and Parched lands) (with sfx)
* Added bodies inside rocks encounter (found in drylands and Parched lands) (with sfx)
* Added dynamic brawlers having a fight encounter (found in near north and wild north)
* Added dynamic wilderman encounter (found in wild north and far north) (with sfx)
* Added new desperate looking peasants (generic explore encounter)
* Added new need work encounter (generic explore encounter)
* Added dynamic gift tree visitor encounter (found in denland)
* Added goblin wooden woman trap encounter (found in wildwood)
* Added goblin spike pit encounter (found in wildwood)
* Added goblin spike mounds encounter (found in wildwood)
* Added holy order of roses knight (found in songwood)
* Added Old man stone of denland pilgrim (found in denland)
* Added skipping boy stone of denland pilgrim (found in denland)
* Added normal stone of denland pilgrim encounter (found in denland)
* Added broken lute encounter (found in songwood)
* Added rotten drums encounter (found in songwood)
* Added lone arrow encounter (found in songwood and wildwood)
* Added tree full of arrows (found in songwood and wildwood)
* Added new desperate looking warriors (generic explore encounter) (with sfx)
* Added new need a new master encounter (generic explore encounter) (with sfx)
* Added dead southern knight (southern explore encounter)
* Added frozen knight (northern explore encounter)
* Added pair of lost knights (generic explore encounter)

* Added randomly generated treasure found (rare generic explore encounter) (with sfx)
* Added killable oooh snake encounter (all southern regions except south coast)(with sfx)
* Added rare chance that southern wind reveals a treasure (anywhere in the south)

TWEAKS AND FIXES TO OLD ENCOUNTERS (13 features)

I've also tweaked some of the old generic encounters to fit with this new update.

* Made it so that peasant joiners explore event doesn't happen in far north, drylands or ancient lands
* Cleared broken encounters from explore event system
* Added new system dividing some encounters by region
* Fixed 14 text and grammar bugs in explore events
* Made foreign king knight buyer encounter 5x rarer
* Added new sound effect and screen for hiring masterless soldiers
* Fixed bug with explore event text for wandering soldiers
* Added new screen for being unable to afford masterless soldiers
* Added missing +chaos orb indicator for chaos orb exploration attempts
* Made white marker +1 chance of exploring twice as rare
* Fixed bug with explore event text for wandering peasants
* Added new sound effect and screen for hiring masterless peasants
* Added new screen for being unable to afford masterless peasants

WANDERING AIMLESSLY (7 features)

And now instead of getting a little blip of text saying 'You wander aimlessly' there is a dynamic screen instead!

* Added new system for wandering aimlessly
* Added indicator of exploration chance lost with aimless wandering
* Added 3 wander aimlessly screens for the west
* Added 3 wander aimlessly screens for the east
* Added 3 wander aimlessly screens for the south
* Added 3 wander aimlessly screens for the north
* Added 3 generic wander aimlessly screens

THE REST OF THE UPDATE (63 features)
-

All of this was originally going to be the update until I spent the last three days working on the above system! This is still a juicy update in and of itself though, difficulty changes and several other systems being improved. Weirdly this ended up being the same number of features as the above, so it's kind of two identically sized updates.

DIFFICULTY REWORKS (12 features)

Warsim's difficulty choice mostly affects how the game starts off rather than how it progresses as you play, I have attempted here to do a bit more of both starting disadvantages as well as long term harder gameplay in certain areas. Now independent kingdoms will grow faster in population depending on the difficulty and many other locations garrisons are bigger. Randomisation still exists for troops costs and certain units but they will be higher on average with these new changes.

* Added kingdoms get a 1.5x increase in recruits in normal difficulty
* Added kingdoms get a 2x increase in recruits in hard difficulty
* Added kingdoms get a 3x increase in recruits in hard difficulty
* Added kingdoms get a 4x increase in recruits in hard difficulty
* Added militia costs +2, +3, +4, +5 gold in Normal, Hard, Solid, And Insane Difficulty
* Added soldiers cost +4, +6, +8, +10 gold in Normal, Hard, Solid, And Insane Difficulty
* Added knights cost +10, +15, +20, +25 gold in Normal, Hard, Solid, And Insane Difficulty
* Added Slaver Fort Garrison gets +100, +150, +250, +350 soldiers in Normal, Hard, Solid, And Insane Difficulty
* Added Thickblood bandits get +150, +250, +350, +550 troops in Normal, Hard, Solid, And Insane Difficulty
* Added Blackmarket garrison gets +300, +600, +800, +1000 troops in Normal, Hard, Solid, And Insane Difficulty
* Added Gorthmek fort gets +200, +400, +600, +700 troops in Normal, Hard, Solid, And Insane Difficulty
* Added Combat Academy gets +50, +100, +150, +200 champions in Normal, Hard, Solid, And Insane Difficulty

LEADERS POST-ANNEXATION (8 features)

This was planned for the vassal update but I couldn't get it done in time, now it's in! Once annexed this tells you what becomes of the leader of the now annexed kingdom from a range of random possibilities.

* Added new system for what happens to leader of independnet kingdom once it's annexed
* Added 'isolated life' outcome for independent leader
* Added 'strange distant lands' outcome for independent leader
* Added 'humble life' outcome for independent leader
* Added 'trader' outcome for independent leader
* Added 'way of the bard' outcome for independent leader
* Added 'never seen' outcome for independent leader
* Added 'highest tower' outcome for independent leader

FORTS IMPROVED (15 features)

So I revisited forts recently and noticed that upgrading is pretty terrible and that there are some 'secret' features such as your chosen commanders battlescore directly influencing how many troops a fort can have and their recruitment rating so now those are less secret and installing a leader or upgrading a fort both have their own nice new screens.

* Added new upgrade screen when upgrading Fort Kullak
* Added new upgrade screen when upgrading Fort Gorthmek
* Added new upgrade screen when upgrading Fort Northwatch
* Added new upgrade screen when upgrading Your Fort
* Added new screen for choosing champion for fort Northwatch
* Added new screen for choosing champion for fort Gorthmek
* Added new screen for choosing champion for fort Kullak
* Added new screen for choosing champion for Your Fort
* Added new block for options if you don't have champions in certain slots for forts
* Fixed Grammar bug in northwatch
* Fixed Grammar bug in Gorthmek
* Fixed Grammar bug in Kullak
* Fixed issue with northwatch graphics
* Fixed issue with Kullaks graphics
* Added screen for new fortress commander being instated (explaining their bonuses)

LAVA PIT REWORKED (2 features)

So this place was accidentally a total secret weapon against the demons, for the low low price of 6 peasants the demons were stopped forever! Now it's fixed, but I have made it easier to automate the process of stopping the demons recruitment patterns.

* Added ability to autosacrifice peasants at lava pit if you sacrifice 6 per turn for 2 turns
* Fixed sacrificing 6 peasants in the lava pit completely blocked the demons from ever spawning additional demons

AM I FUNNY? (1 feature)

Some of you may have discovered that having a custom celebration where people getting drunk is selected will cause many new throne room events, one such event includes a drunk wandering into your court and peeing on the floor, I had this event occur the other day and thought It would hilarious if, provided you had a jester, he stepped forward and said 'Urine trouble now!' - It made me laugh at least!

* Added Urine Trouble joke

NEW BLACKOUTS (2 features)

Two more events you can wake up to if you get Blackout drunk in a tavern or booze stall.

* Added dead knight blackout drunk encounter
* Added stolen item blackout drunk encounter

EVERYTHING ELSE (8 features)

* Added goblinwood slavery ended option shows the slaves that joined goblinwoods population
* Added screen for pushing back the demon horde in battle

SUMMARY

In summary, this update offers a new expansion on the exploration encounters had while exploring the realm and makes them region specific. It expands on the difficulty effects in game making difficulty both increase difficulty at game start and add missing elements of permanent difficulty differences between settings.

It adds a small missing part from the annexation update which is the stories of what the leader of the annexed kingdom does post annexation. The four forts discoverable and ownable in game have been expanded on with new features making it much clearer when upgrading and installing a leader what that leader does for the fort, revealing fort leader mechanics that were previously not openly shown by the game.

Other than that there were lots of other smaller tweaks, bugfixes, additions, and changes to the game such as new blackout drunk events, improvements on the lava pit, and an improved snail racing circuit.

Prior to this update 'Darkmarsh' had two functional things in it, a semi working cup game run by a faceless goblin called Dapplogk, and a semi-functional toll bridge feature forcing you to either pay or not be able to access locations in front of it. For the longest time this region of the west has been unfinished with 9 of it's 10 locations inaccessible, so in an effort to start tying up loose ends the entire of Darkmarsh has now been added to the game, this includes an interesting and content filled village called Uktak, a strange statue with dynamic visitors, a killable bridge troll who expects toll, a goblin filled tavern floating on a lily pad (you can get drunk here), an improved cup game, a smugglers den, and a bunch more smaller things!

Hey everyone,

So after being asked by a few people if I had any way to further support me beyond buying the game I've decided to open a patreon. I'm not going be promoting it everywhere or anything like that so after this post you won't hear about it for a while, but I'm happy to offer it as option for people who want to help support the game further in it's developments.

I won't be doing any Warsim DLC as I don't want to gate content from anyone, but it is a struggle sometimes with continuing to fund development.

In 2017 following the games launch on steam there were 20 updates, then in 2018 there were 32, and then in 2019 just last year the game got 58 updates (more than one per week!) Although this year so far we're on 5.

https://i.imgur.com/zA5L2we.png

There are currently three tiers on the Patreon (but I'm open to ideas):

* Helpful Goblin Tier - $1
* Loyal Warrior Tier - $3 (your name on Gro'lok's stump, and some names in game)
* Supportive Ogre Tier - $25 (the above +I'll mail you some notes and concept art from the development that month… Although there's only five of these)

You can find the patreon page here - https://www.patreon.com/Warsim/membership

Any support is appreciated but not expected, Thank you for all for being here regardless

RACE EFFECT ADDITIONS (3 features)

As you guys are aware there are 94+ million possible races that can be generated in the game, thanks to 1000s of different prefixes and race types. The vast majority of the procedurally generated races have effects and stats and abilities that make them all vastly unique from eachother but a smaller number of them don't have any unique differences, for example Faceless races. Faceless Men sound cool but in reality in game they are just normal men… No more! Now they will get a blank face, same for unborn. I'm always happy to add new tweaks that further add diversity to the millions of races you are unlikely to ever see!

* Added 'Faceless' races will now have blank faces
* Added 'Unborn' races will now also have blank faces
* Added new racial trait '45' for blank faces (can be used for any new prefixes)

THE VAMPIRE UPDATE (67 features)

So while working through my long planlist for Warsim as I prepare the roadmap to getting the game released, I found a small list of various plans for the Vampire city of Baiaa and it's respective features. I then searched the list for the rest of the vampire related ideas and read through all of them before deciding to clear them all in a little update.

GENERAL BAIAA STUFF (25 features)

Hey Everyone, so this update is part of my attempt to cut down my 500+ feature list of Warsim to-dos. The list is made up of around 100 loose feature ideas and then 20-30 large feature updates such as Rpgification (The addition of more first person elements to the game), Expansion on Adventurers, Noble Houses, Demon Improvements, The Ancient Isle, And so on.

I am aiming to completely clear this list in the run up to full release on steam and hope to get there within this year if possible. This update is made up mostly of small things cleared from that list as I move on to my next update… Diplomacy!

DIFFICULTY CHOICE SCREEN UPDATE (4 features)

After a suggestion by DarkMark the Difficulty choice screen now has a few more options! You can also now see the debug modes available.

* Added new ability to ask about difficulties on difficulty choice (credit u/DarkMark8910)
* Added ability to show debug modes on main difficulty choice menu
* Updated debug modes intro text
* Added bank gold increase to cheat debug mode

IN-GAME WIKI REWORKED (3 features)

The Gaming Dictator pointed out that the in-game wiki was in a bad state, I've reworked it to be just a unit and battlescore wiki now and have brought it up to the same standard as the rest of the game. While writing this new battlescore Wiki I also got a little curious and ended up doing some research to find the strongest possible units generated in game, the winner was the 'Behemoth Arch-Demigod King' with a whopping 108000 Battlescore…

* Reworked in-game wiki to be a battlescore wiki (credit u/TheGamingDictator)
* Added new section of in-game wiki for strongest unit ever (credit u/TheGamingDictator)
* Added new formatting for unit and battlescore wiki pages in game (credit u/TheGamingDictator)

THICKBLOOD TAVERN IMPROVEMENTS (5 features)

Found a few issues with the Thickblood tavern not being to the same standard as the rest of the game!

* Fixed thickblood upgrade screen kicking you out after each upgrade
* Added current gold shown when trying to upgrade thickblood
* Added new standard upgrade graphics for upgrading thickblood
* Added 69 testcode entered in owned thickblood tavern which strips all upgrades from it
* Added new dynamic hire screen for Thickblood tavern

THRONE ROOM ENCOUNTERS (15 features)

After getting a duplicate throne room encounter a couple of times I decided to make it more varied, now the gold gift encounters are far more varied and some of them can be bad for public opinion if you take the gold. There's also now a super rare encounter where someone finds a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow and shares it with you and it can be a lot of gold!

* Added new bad gold taken encounter type where accepting gold is bad (credit Cat)
* Added new throne room encounter 'Burning Orphanage gold' very bad gold
* Added new throne room encounter 'Undeserving people' bad gold
* Added new throne room encounter 'Gambling scam profit' bad gold

THE DIPLOMACY UPDATE - Coming soon!

Hey everyone,

So just letting you guys know that the Diplomacy update which I've been working on since the last Warsim release 9 days ago, will probably be released sometime near the end of next week.

The work that's been done already has in my opinion massively improved the experience of diplomacy, especially in trying to make peace with other kingdoms which was built to function similar to the vassal system but more in-depth and bigger.

So far the update is sizing up to be a huge one, with 214 features in at the moment but surely many more to come before it is complete.

**THE STORY SO FAR**

The update as it currently stands includes:

* A completely reworked peace process that includes an emissary system identical to the vassalisation process, as well as dynamic reactions for 30+ independent race prefixes, such as Light races being much more inclined to make peace with you if you're a good ruler, and Death races completely rejecting peace permanently, or pacifist races guarenteed to accept. The system also includes 49 different reactions to peace that range from asking you to pay a single coin, or accepting but murdering your emissary, to someone asking you to sacrfice 1 peasant per -1 relation, or asking you to answer a riddle… for peace!
* Improvments to hiring independent kingdom units including kingdoms friendly to you offering 10-20% discount
* Improvements and screens given to setting up and closing trade route with other kingdoms
* New pop up events at the end of turn including one that stops you from reaching the highest limit of number that can be stored in the games gold counter which is 2 billion (or more specifically 2,147,483,647) so if anyone reaches 1 billion they will be met by hyperinflation… sorry comrades but there be no billionaires in the realm of Aslona.
* Tournaments have been improved with lots of new screens, as well as a guarenteed public opinion boost depending on the size of the tournament, taking a hint from ancient rome on that one.
* Also following a player suggestion I've made it so the sorry old fields of Rihhm Village in the East can now be terraformed if you have the terraformers guild which greatly improves the village's economic output
* Also 98 billion more demigod faces after a few experiments
* 38 bugfixes and misc improvements
* And perhaps my favourite of all, the Arena now has a screen showing your lost gold when paying to watch an arena fight (if you don't own the arena and the arena owner charges you to watch fights). You can also get random events such as being let in for free or accidentally being only charged half… but that's not it… You can now still try and enter and watch and arena fight even if you don't have the gold, if it's your first time Gordeth the Ticket Attendant will happily let you through… but do it more and he might have to get the manager… or you know, you could let out your inner Karen and do it yourself!

**SCREENSHOTS**

* Instant peace when requested with Pacifist Fungus Orcs - https://i.imgur.com/nTwVJQd.png
* Gordeth is a good guy really - https://i.imgur.com/HQPcc3F.png
* Release the Karen! - https://i.imgur.com/HtzRXil.png
* The new peace emissary system - https://i.imgur.com/ZATcLYD.png
* Chances look good - https://i.imgur.com/pqxY2YX.png
* Oh no… what does he want? - https://i.imgur.com/n8VNHkp.png
* Publicly… Ugh - https://i.imgur.com/T9jyy4w.png
* Ok… how are we going to word this - https://i.imgur.com/vwcmjzF.png
* There were good people on both sides - https://i.imgur.com/Gh1zrnA.png
* Well… better than nothing - https://i.imgur.com/5pZxZ7Q.png

**WHAT'S LEFT TO DO**

I still have a number of systems I still want to work on before I release this diplomacy update and call it a day. They are as follows:

* Rework of the gifting gold system to adjust the gold gift amount from 500 gold to proportionally 100th, 10th, and a quarter of the kingdom in questions income as well as dynamic reactions
* The chance for diplomatic actions from other kingdoms such as gifting you gold and offering you peace
* The ability to declare war on a neutral or friendly faction with varied reaction
* An updated system for requesting military or financial aid
* A rework of the alliance system following on from the peace and vassal systems with emissaries and tons of varied reactions
* And several other things that are probably but not definitely going in to the update depending on time

I'm already happy with what's been done and feel like it's going to breathe life into the diplomacy system and make it much more interesting.

So that's it for now, looking forward to releasing this update!

BATTLE PHASE IMPROVEMENTS (5 features)

The previous battle phase screen was a bit of a mess, now it's been fixed up, I've also removed the end of turn event system that gives occasional rare random events on the screen you choose who you want to attack, these encounter will later be moved to the turn report like all other game events.

Shaian's birth rate is now a little higher, and there's a new screen when entering Karald's trophy room showing you pay for it (you previously didn't even get charged!)

* Made the kingdom flag symbol always be based on the first character of your kingdom name at game start (can still be changed manually)
* Added new coin sound effect when placing a bet in the arena
