How to play: https://pastebin.com/ehJnx9SL

The dice you put in the "options" box is:
dice+1d10

>What is /conqst/?
/conqst/ is a 4Chan story-telling game that is just like Risk but allows you to have more freedom in defining your civilization. By joining this game, you are constantly involved with the drastic changes of the global story through events, new civilizations, strong national strategies, and diplomacy.

>Can I join/Stop playing?
Yes and yes! Read the how to play guide. If there isn't any free territory (shaded in white), some players may be nice enough to give you land or allocate a puppet state. If not, then you could wait until the next game (or when I kick out inactive players). If you want to stop playing, just either let me know or stop going to this thread.

>How hard is it to learn how to play this game?
Not too hard. You start with 5 territories as one nation, expand until you can't expand, and choose to either attack, fortify, or defend. Plain and simple. You also get +1 attack and +1 defense for every certain amount of territories you own, and gain National Strength (NS) and gold every roll. The how to play guide covers more on all of this.

>>4901512
We'll start once we have enough players (if so, the next map will be in 12 hours from the time of this post.).

Oof. It appears your nation isn't doing so well due to barbarian invasions in that area. No can do. I can't do gods work of any kind. Look at Hungary before. They had to deal with invasive mice, but they were able to stomp them out and regroup their settlers. The same goes for Iceland for their previous roll. Who know why they were unable to expand that well. Now, The Holy Russian Empire... They must of found a good surplus of resources to make it far into eastern Europe. The point is, things happen because they happen. It's the luck of nature if you want to call it like that.

Ah, I see it too from your current location. The black ash to the south that blots the windows of the transparent sky, denying entry to the winged creatures of the air. It is an unprecedented, yet fascinating occurrence. While I do not object to swiping the Trolls in the silent forests and addlepated swindlers in their fancy ships, I would approach this with moderation; to see where the black ash originates and what is there for us to deliberate on before any hasty or aggressive approach is executed. Surely, there could be something there that we could benefit from first before all else, no?

Now's the time to ensure Swedish dominance is known throughout Scandinavia!
12. Culture flip (Special): All adjacent territories around you are now yours. You can't take any action (such as expanding from, fortifying, trade, etc.) on those territories on the current map nor they can be attacked. Doesn't work on opponents at war with you and does work on allies.
Also, fortify the territories in and near Hovedstaden. Excess forts goes near the alliance capitol.

Thank you. I'll jab at them when the time is right.
What I mean by favor is you'll find our people become more amicable towards yours, and I believe this is a step forward to help build stronger ties between our two great nations. Not in a sense where I would need to return you a favor, but that doesn't necessarily imply I won't do anything back for you.

The term "Facs" came up in a discussion between Iceland and I. We do not know what to call you and I decided that we should call your demonym and faction "Facs". It is the first three letters of your nation's name "The Factory" and an added "s" to make it plural. If it offends you, then perhaps you could enlighten me on a better term?

My fellow friends, it has come in recent light that we have struck first a nation seemingly without reason. The white fox is not a white wolf. This nation, known as "the French empire", has disrespected the king of Sweden by blatantly ignoring him! A nation's king should be respected as proportionally to another's, and disrespect towards a king is a violation to the national decree and honor of the people for the nation. Thus, my decision to declare war on this nation is valid, and we shall go forth to prevail against this atavistic tribe, either to force annihilation or vassalage upon them.

I, the king of Sweden, formally declare war against the French empire and any of its allies!

Expand into the remaining territories. Fortify further on the borders with The Factory and Iceland. Attack the French Empire and use Blitzkrieg!
1. Blitzkrieg (Attack): If you successfully capture an enemy territory after attacking, all of the enemy (either one or more nations) territories that are adjacent to your captured territory are also attacked (no second roll). If you successfully take any territory, +3 attack for the next map.

Expand:
Well then lets expand in Moldavias way and lets become a little bit fuller

Like this. (If this is not a problem of course)
>>
>>4910977
That's fine, but put "dice+1d10" (without quotation marks) into the Options box when you roll so the text is bold like everyone else's.
>>
>>4910982
Otherwise, I won't count it as a roll.

>>4911097
Are you so emotionally instable to the point where you cannot firmly and boldly state that you will not back down? Anger is not a quality of good leadership, "president". Nay, I will continue my assault and see to it that the sword gets to the skin of your neck. And when it does, you will then decide whether to become my vassal or be killed off.
>>
>>4911038
>>4911070
I'd like to publicly declare my neutrality in this situation.
I will however offer economic aid in the form of a loan that must be repaid upon completion of the war.
>>
Rolled 3 (1d10)

>>4910914
Finish taking the Iberian coast, finish taking any untaken Portugal, and keep generally expanding.

>>4911038
>>4910943
So really, it is the Swedish King who is ignoring you? Hmm. Have they announced any intentions for their invasion - perhaps if an armistice can be arranged we could attempt to negotiate some form of peace between your warring factions?

>>4910569
(Milan, France; France, Milan; say hello.)
Does the Holy Father in Rome have any directives or suggestions for what should be done?

I said leave us alone we want land a back and end this damm foolish war now

If you want us to leave you alone, then you are going to surrender all of these territories here, and you will also become a puppet state of Sweden. While I will grant some autonomy and protection along with cultural and economical guidance, you must abide to any of the Swedish king's orders. That will be enough to spare you from your possible eradication of your nation.
>>
>>4911262
The territories outlined inside the blue line, I mean. Give us those ones.
>>
>>4911262
no i DO NOT to be your puppet i just want all my lands back and just be left alone and that is it nothing more thing less that is all just leave my country and no land will be exchanged the only thing that will be exchanged is gold 200 to be exact
>>
>>4911279
Unfortunately, this is as generous as I can be with my proposal. I suppose more bloodshed is needed to ensure you understand how a Swedish society works; both in Sweden and in your occupied territories. Starting to speak Swedish and Icelandic is a good start for you.
>>
>>4911290
how about giving you all my gold that is far im willing to go if i have to bankrupt my country for peace
>>
>>4911305
Any counteroffer you suggest wouldn't be fair for me or Iceland. My proposal >>4911262 will be the only thing on this table. So no, I decline your counteroffer.
>>
im being fair you sir are unreasonable i ask for something reasonable and simply
1 leave me alone
2 give all my lands back
3 im giving you all my gold to you
its fair i get something you get something it is fair
>>
>>4911311
>>4911307
>>
>>4911311
>>4911313
Last chance French President. Accept my proposal or simply suffer. We both know you don't want this war to go on, so why not accept my offer already? I've already listed protection as a reason, so what's the problem?
>>
>>4911319
i want to left alone that means not being you puppet and im giving you all my gold in exchange for the land that you stole returned back to me we all gain some i gain my lands back you gain a bunch of gold that is all
>>
>>4911325
Then we have nothing more to talk about. In the future, if you do change your mind, you are going to give up more than what I'm asking for now.
>>
>>4911330
let me tell you somthing in ww2 we were suddenly attacked and lost in 46 days most of our land then puppet by the enemy then liberated by allied forces and i dont want to be puppet again so just give all my lands back and take all the gold that i have we this is the most reasonable deal that im giving you
>>
>>4911340
and adding on to the deal you keep the half of the land in the east
>>
>>4911139
>>4911233
>>4911262

My friend, I am but a humble servant of the one above! I am not a master of diplomacy, I am but a man.
I wish not for war, I only wish that the ones who attacked first apologize and pay reparations.
Are we not all sons and daughters of the Lord? Is this what He died for?

Is this the reason why we rule? To spread unhappiness among the people of this world?

France, my friend, I see your plight. I will grant you all my lands in the southern continent of Africa, if the swedish do not want peace. None shall be forced to abandon their culture for the whims of another, be they ruler or peasant. If all else fails, flee there, and live peacefully

My friends, I have to ask you for a favor, most unfortunately. It is a great favor, and one I would not ask lightly of anyone, for it may well result in the death of many of your wards given unto you by our lord and savior.
My friends, what I speak of is of the French Republic, whose lands are being overtaken not for a godly reason but for mere greed, or at least that is what we know.

I am asking much of you. I am asking that you, my brothers and sisters under the lord, assist the french people in their survival, helping them resist the Swedish invasion.
I am very certain that it is these folks who insist on invading Europe, and while I may look like a bird of misfortune I fear that if they were to stamp out the French, our own cultures might be next.

Transfer the states I own in Romania to Transylvania.

>>4913274
We feel that upholding the sovereignty of fellow nations and opposing the violation of such sovereignty is the duty of all upstanding nations in Europe. However, while we are more than willing to contribute, we in Byzantium are afraid that there is little we can do to support the French in their current conflict. We can suggest perhaps asking the Swiss for a loan, considering their gold reserves and we would be willing to contribute to its repayment at a later date.

Expand into central Iberia, then once finished move into Occitania

>>4913274
Sometimes, one needs to make the hard choices. War is never a joy, but there are times when it is a necessity. And so it seems today. When the Milanese republic is forced to ride to war to save the French peoples, we will ready ourselves to march at your side. We would, however, request a small loan to help ready our forces for this conflict - would you be able to spare the sum of a 305 gold loan, so that we might better ready our men for the conflict ahead? We would also request an introduction to neighbours of yours we might not have met, so that we might establish further trade to recoup those losses sooner.

(Also, would you want to transform the capitol bonus of Rome to something better suited to war?)

>>4913454
And sometimes, the best thing a vigilant ally can do is keep watch upon the borders; a deterrent to keep the conflict from further escalation. Though perhaps you could establish trade with if given contact with the French, to help bolster their economy that must be flagging?

>>4913205
The Milanese republic readies themselves to come to your aid, and our republic will prepare ourselves to join them in your defense in due course. We would therefore make a small suggestion - as it seems that Imperialism is a force to be opposed at this time, your claim to the title of 'Emperor' has at this point become more a jest then a fact. We would suggest your nation adopt a new name to better fit the republican cause... The Burgundian Republic would better suit your colour and current domains, but you might prefer just to become the French Republic. We would also request a pact of access between us.

>>4913454
All this talk about war and sovereigny is pretty intriguing, mind introducing me to those lads in need of assistance?

okay so my National Strenght got maxed so i can finaly use strategies yes?

Yes, you can use a national strategy.

>>4913454
Your assistance is much welcome, my friend. I am happy to see your heart is not barren, and so we ask for a favor: may we change our bonus into a more warlike one, that our chances against this invader may be greater?

>>4913689
I agree with this. Our forces shall be better put to defending our neighbor in danger. And of course, I shall introduce you to my friends! Here have your gold, what is gold when compared to the greatness of helping another?

>>4913278
Friend! I have heard the suffering of your people, and I come to accept the alliance: we shall focus on attacking, for we shall drive back the Swedish and give you back your lands!

>>4913580
> walk through switzerland to attack the Swedish invaders
> increase my attack and defense with 1200 gold
>>
>>4913635
I'm sorry, but the Swiss are committed to neutrality and refusing business with France wouldn't align with our values. I would think Sweden would understand that.
My door is always open to you should you finish your war however.
>>4913758
Hold your stinking horses, we don't do that here.
If you want access to Sweden, expand west to go through France, or east and ask Hungary for open borders.
>>
>>4913770
No, I didn't know you are committed to neutrality as this is our first meeting, so I did not know what your principles are. Nonetheless, I will respect your neutrality.

Anyway, my response is no for your trade proposal, but I may ask again later in the future depending on how the war turns out. I may also be interested in any other services if you have them.

Cheating ass niggers. No wonder I got fucked over so many games, you probably played as five different countries and gave yourself the territories afterwards.
You should ban this faggot or give him some sort of heavy penalty.

You're probably right. This faggot might be everyone on my fallout game. It's also this faggot's fault for ruining my Order of Smokey nation playthrough on that game and lowering my thread view count on /qst/. Thanks a lot.

While you may have the trips of truth, I say: You've lost World Edition #1 (technically, you didn't lose; you quit that one because you were bored), World Edition #4, and Fallout Edition #1. The only game you won is Tamriel Edition #1. If there's anyone that should be complaining the most, it's this guy (i think): >>4913121 since this poor gentle soul lost EVERY finished game so far (this is the 7th game of /conqst/ and there's two active running now.).
>>
>>4914000
Yeah sure Milan, I wouldn't mind at all.
Actually I was interested in perhaps applying to join one of your commerce alliances.
The economic prosperity of the Mediterranean is important to all that call her shores home, I'm sure you, the Byzantines and anyone else along the sea would agree.
>>
>>4913758
With the gold borrowed from Milan added to make a Portuguese treasury of 1200 exactly, pay 1200 gold for the permeant increase of attack/defense strength.

Requesting military access to your lands, France.

>>4913994
Now I'm really confused. Hungary's saying he's in Iceland's alliance, but Iceland's only allied to Sweden.. and Sweden is Conqstr? Is this some admission of multiple personality disorder that he's playing three nations and running the game and telling himself off for doing that at the same time, or just a stirring attempt?

You're correct sir about the multiple personality disorder, minus the iceland part which is hideously disgusting.

Why that is great!
Let us make a trade deal then. Rome sound good for you?

Oh, hello Hungary! The French has disrespected me and threatened the sovereignty of one of the neighbors. When I came to visit France the first time, I was admiring their artistic styles of their architecture, but they proceeded to ignore me there and offered up a deal for no reason. 100 gold to see this nation and get an unwanted response is clearly a waste of money, and I was annoyed by this. When I was discussing them with their immediate neighbor, they also mentioned that they were annoyed that they had to give up territories because it "violated French sovereignty". I was surprised to hear this, and I do believe that, if the french were left unchecked, they would bully them more and possibly my ally as well when they expand east. Hence, with a few discussions with my immediate ally and my neighbor, I've decided to throw the ice right back at them.

Sir, to be frank you’re currently destroying a culture and becoming a world superpower through the annihilation of European states. The common opinion is that we should at least attempt to contain you and kick you out of Europe, since you were unresponsive to previous offers of peace or discussion.
I am unsure on what caused you to attack France, but regardless of that what you are doing is a monstrous act.

Hmmm...Yes, I am destroying a culture, no doubt about it, but there is clearly some false truths about us and why we are obliterating away France.

It isn't a big loss for us if you don't join, but we understand. Our wall is there to protect the swedish kingdom, and you are not the only one who has received this treatment (I even have fortifications with my immediate neighbors as well). However, unlike my immediate neighbors, you have more territories bordering us, and we would like to ensure there isn't a sneak attack from any nation that would grab a big amount of territory, regardless of who it is. I wouldn't care if you did the same to us as it may be a smart thing for you to do. Let's hope this doesn't get in the way with our current standings.

>>4914958
A ceasefire would be welcome to the Portuguese Republic. We joined this conflict alongside Milan out of a desire to preserve a European culture from extinction; if this can be fairly done at the diplomatic table we would welcome this opportunity. And it would also grant us better opportunity to get to know the mysterious and mighty powers of the North.

>>4914963
We would gladly welcome a trade agreement with the Holy Russian Empire
>>
>>4915050
>>4915131
All right, ceasefire it is then. Now, onto our discussion: I didn't expect to piss off the continent's legs over my fight with France, but it is clear to me that you do not want this nation to disappear off the continent. Considering that the circumstances has changed, we are not willing to do that or make them our vassal. I also had no idea that Facs is a friend of yours, and they are siding with us on our fight against the french empire. While I cannot speak on behalf of the Facs as it appears they have some unwanted malfunctioning, I do know what I want to ensure there is peace between us.

1. First, France should cede all of their northern territory in france to Sweden, which some of it will then be given to The Factory to clean up our borders. In exchange, the french sixth republic gains an equal amount of territory in south-western france.
2. Second and lastly, you shall give me those territories that you took near Hungary. I was going to exchange those territories for the territories that is south of Denmark so my people can move closer to my kingdom.

I believe this should be enough to make peace with you, the french sixth republic, and the portuguese republic (which is a nation I've have yet to interact with). While I am annoyed that you have taken a side without knowing what the other side is really fighting for, I am still open to start building strong ties with all parties involved. What do you think of the above deal?

As I said back then i'd like to remain neutral for the next 2 or 3 turns after that I will reconsider the trading alliance. And now the time has come and I decided and unsurprisingly as you have probably guessed your offer is an undeniable one to me which i sooner or later would accept. and now my borders are standing open for your traders. May this deal will be fruitful for both your empire and my poor country alike.

However if you are willing to simply talk a bit more then you would find that this game were playing isn't zero-sum and if you are wiling to, at the very least consider what I say then we both can end up in a much more advantageous position.

I'll accept your add-ons, but the "we will not fuck over Europe again" clause isn't something we're not trying to do in the first place.

Hmmm... There were changes to their alliance capitols from gold to attack to fit Milan's specific needs, so you're right about that. The second and third points is what I want to know, and the fourth point is potentially contradictory to our annoyance. A united Europe sounds beneficial to all nations, but when there's the Looming Shadow of War close to the most harmonious of nations...It will eventually bring devastation to our nations if we don't resolve now.
>>4915590
So, I think I'll take the trade deal but not accept the trade alliance. If there's no one else to object, then this would be my final deal.

I worry that they may be trying at Salami Tactics with this deal, that is, they're going to try and take over Europe slice by slice. While the deal is obviously all but agreed upon now, we would encourage you to take a stronger stance against them in the future. They're already the most powerful nation in Europe, it would be well for us if they didn't become even bigger.

Additionally, I know Iceland and my neighbor more than you, so they are the least concern for invasion (though we do have plans in the future to build forts in all of Scandinavia's coastline). Even at that, if we deemed you as a threat, then there wouldn't be any reason to push the alliance offer to you. Twice. The way I see it is that you're declining because you see us more like a threat than a friend and using the idea that I built forts to either protect myself from conflict with you, attack you or to backstab you is disappointing. We're offering an alliance to you because you're a really strong nation like us, and having another good nation on our side would help us ensure security and prosperity among us, not to pinpoint a future date for betrayal (which is something you still need to elaborate on or show proof as it is a baseless claim. There are ZERO instances that we've backstabbed anyone. While I understand your anxiety for other nations conspiring to attack you, joining our alliance would alleviate this.).

We will not push our offer to you again or push this matter any further aside from your baseless claim. If you want to reconsider, let us know.

You should head for the coasts of the British isles and the land I've given to the Facs, and I'll take the coast of northern germany, france and netherlands.

Nei. What you said in private is:
>its to make the other European powers approve of you: if they’re sure you’re not a threat, requests for trade will flock!
Thanks to my ally's strong perception and critical thinking on a previous statement, I do not wish to enter a trade alliance with you. The problem is your allies think I'm a threat, which will then make me focus on the defense of Sweden to the greatest magnitude and prepare for any possible attack on us.

Ja, I was determined to delete a culture or possibly enslave them. Let's call it a good propaganda tool to demonstrate Swedish might for those who are caught red-handed on a Swedish bra. But, I've already told you that the circumstances have changed and I didn't want to do that because I wasn't aware that you and the rest of your allies didn't want France to be decimated prior to meeting any of you. I may now be the strongest nation due to the war against France, but that doesn't mean that I can whip my belt around others as I please before a united force comes barreling down on Sweden. This is true before the war and likewise for anyone else.

I am not a tyrant. Those are for the toxicity and weak-minded individuals who could not seize a good relationship with others. Perhaps if you and your other mainlander friends could...Give us a chance? I came to the mainland with intentions on making friends, after all. How does a European council sound? Surely this could resolve any potential "YOU MIGHT BE SECRETLY PLANNING TO STRIKE US FOR THE LOLS" thoughts from any nation.

TO MY FELLOW NATIONS OF EUROPE

We are all getting sick of Sweden's twisted words and shady dealings. Currently they are the most powerful nation in Europe, and they are certainly acting like they mean to become even greater, trying to reel other nations into their alliance and bullying smaller nations like France, who have no hope of resisting them. I for one do now wish this state of affairs to continue. To that end, I propose that Sweden must be taught a lesson. We form a coalition, with the goal of kicking Sweden out of Europe and ensuring they cannot threaten us any further. We may have to involve Iceland in this war too if they foolishly come to Sweden's aid, but with out numbers united they should not pose a threat. What say you all?

I'm not sure if you've been reading some of the previous posts, but basically, the war ended with us calling peace because France was threatening your sovereignty and Milan and the others disagreed with what France was doing. They did attack me under misinformation but they realized that France was guilty of annoying you after I explained to them about what they did to you. Now, Milan is suggesting that their allies see me as a threat. Even worse is our intel suggests that the Holy Russian Empire (a big nation to the east) is possibly plotting our downfall, considering that they've rejected our alliance proposal for trivial reasons (they wanted us to "wait" until russia expands into their lands more, and my fortifications with them is the reason why they don't want to be in our alliance. you can read it here: >>4916640) That alliance proposal we offered to them was a test to see where they would side, and they've definitely failed our test.

I didn't want to drag you into our politics, but if you're interested in helping us, then we an make that arrangement of open borders. Maybe you could try and convince your ally that we're not the enemy of Europe?

WE ATTEMPT TO FIND HOLY FRAGEMENTS OF HER BODY AND TO REBUILD HER IN OUR FACTORIES SO SHE CAN FEND OFF AGAINST YALDABOTH.

THE SHARDS OF HER SHALL BE REVERED UNTIL WE CAN PROPERLY AND FULLY REFORM HER. ALL OF THE TECHNOLOGY OF HER BODYIS SACRED. FROM THE GEARS OF HER HEART TO THE OIL OF HER BLOOD TO THE GLASS SCULPTURE OF HER EYES.

>>4918268
Being in a religion grants you a random perk or a random perk of a chosen attribute that will help get ahead in the game. You can either choose a specific attribute of this quest or completely random. If you choose a specific one, then your odds of getting a stronger perk increases every time the perk is triggered. You can choose from the following attributes: Attack, Defense, Gold, National Strength, National Strategy, Expansion, or Luck. Founders of a religion will gain an extra 5% chance of obtaining a perk, and followers of your religion other the founder gives more of a chance at the cost of slightly weakening the perk's ability. The whole catch to this is I won't tell you what your odds are, how you can receive it, how powerful a perk is or when you're going to receive it. If you're not in a religion, you gain +1 attack/defense against other religious nations, but you won't get any the perks above.
