Helpline / Winter food production on Dwilight.
« on: September 28, 2019, 06:00:45 PM »
This may be broken as well.  Looking at the statistics, winter started September 14th which should have a significant reduction in food since autumn gives a boost production and winter gives a penalty to food production.  It appears that most realms saw an /increase/ or relatively no change to their food production for winter.

Helpline / Food consumption
« on: September 27, 2019, 08:57:34 PM »
Is food consumption broken?  Is half or quarter rations penalties broken?  I'm trying to crunch numbers and I'm not understanding how some of the realms on Dwilight are even functional.  Some realms have more cities than rurals.  (Astrum and Dhara) and some realms are close.(Arnor 4 rurals 3 cities. Avernus 2 cities 3 rurals)  Westgard produces less food or nearly equal to Astrum and has 50k more peasants to feed.   

Realms with more cities than rurals shouldn't be viable.  Is there some way to check the coding and see if food consumption or lowered ration penalties are working correctly?  If they are working correctly then perhaps food needs to be readdressed.   Makes it easier for some of the skeletal realms to hang on when food is not a factor for some reason.

Helpline / Commoner Questions
« on: May 03, 2019, 04:49:51 PM »
My noble has been declared a commoner because I am antagonistic towards a popular noble.  The rest of the realm is going along with it.   No way would the nobility accept such a thing.  At what point does game mechanics trump role playing and what recourse do I have?

Questions & Answers / Against the rules?
« on: February 17, 2019, 03:05:53 PM »
I started a Mercenary Guild.  We move to each realm when we take a contract there.   Contracts are a minimum 3 months extendable to 5 months total.  One of our payments is a lordship in order to build and expand our guildhouse network. 

Is it against the rules to take a lordship I know I am going to abandon in 3-5 months when I go to the next mercenary contract?

Roleplaying / Opening a Portal in Croton
« on: February 25, 2016, 04:48:51 AM »
Aletha prepared herself for the ritual. She snuck into Croton with just herself and her servant.  She left her swordsman behind in Muspel to act as militia.

Having a portal used against her realm to summon werewolves made her search for answers and she had found them in the Volume of the Lost Island.  Some of the texts were indecipherable as the book was slightly damaged.  Other information was gleaned from her families libraries and some from her Aunt Allison's personal journals. 

She took a ceremonial dagger and sliced her wrist.  Draining her blood into a large mortar.  2 crushed portal stones were added to the mortar and ground up.  Then she added 8 quartz and crushed those.  8 rubies, 8 moonstone, 8 cracked sapphires and 8 topaz followed.  8 small diamonds and 8 other portal stones she set off to the side. She lit 8 incense.  When the other gems and portal stones and blood were ground into a paste she stripped down and covered herself in the paste.  She glittered in the candle light. 

She stuck her sword in the ground and propped the Shouting Shield against the sword making an ad hoc lectern on which she sat the book, Volume of the Lost Island, onto it so she could read from the proper pages.

With her standing in the middle 8 portal stones were set up around her one at a time as she read from the book.  As each stone was set down a small diamond was set on top of it.  As the final stones were being placed she knelt behind her makeshift lectern and took a deep breath and shouted as loud as she could through her Shouting Shield   "HAKTOO, HAKTOO, HAKTOO"  her shouts echoed much further than her voice should have been able to carry thanks to the shield. 

This was a risky gamble, but desperate times called for desperate measures.

BM General Discussion / Militia Sucks
« on: February 25, 2016, 03:45:36 AM »
Militia is ruining this game!  Just my personal opinion.  I believe it should be nerfed.  Cost more gold for upkeep and eating more food would be a good start if we aren't going to place some limitations on them.

Questions & Answers / Naming Duchies
« on: January 05, 2016, 02:58:28 PM »
Naming Duchies after nobles?

Where is this rule?  Further in Morek the recent titan decision against the ruler was a poor one in my opinion.  Previous ruler changed the Duchy names to name them after Indirik and after himself.  After I took over his Duchy the ruler changed Urtagonia to Kabrinskia. 

This has to be an obscure rule if one of the major contributors(titans?)  of the game didn't even know about it.  His Duchy was named after himself months and months ago with no repercussions.   I know the player of the Indirik family to be just and fair.  I have to believe he woulda said something if he knew it was against the rules.

I looked on the wiki and couldn't find any rule for this.  Combine that with the previous ruler doing it without punishment AND Indirik not saying anything about it leads me to question the Titans decision.

In my opinion the Titans made a poor decision considering the circumstances.  I hope they do better in the future.

I want a character on BT.  Any suggestions for realms?  And why...?

Far East Island / The Empire

I'm splitting up Arcaea and founding a new empire!

Far East Island / Is this the next big war?
« on: February 04, 2015, 04:37:16 PM »
I wasn't quite ready to secede but it was forced on me.  Will the grand Duchy the Dragon be able to survive?  Or will this be the beginning of the end for Arcaea?

BM General Discussion / priest arrested by rogue?
« on: May 18, 2014, 01:46:50 PM »
Did the arrest chances go up on Dwilight?  I was arrested by rogues as a priest and that had never happened to me before.

Feature Requests / Priest/Trader
« on: May 03, 2014, 06:51:23 AM »
Is this combination still forbidden?   If so, can this be revisited? 

With so few traders as it us, the lack of options for priests already and the new trading system, I think this would be a quick and easy change that would have some benefit to the game.

I know resources are scheduled for a revamp in the future, will those ideas have a significant impact on this idea?   Will it give too large of an advantage to priest/traders somehow?

Helpline / Quarterly Elections

Quarterly Election   (10 days, 19 hours ago)
message to all nobles of Morek Empire
In just a few days, your realm will vote on the General (Ordermarshal) position.
If you want to run for that position, you should probably start your campaign now.
All nobles of the realm will vote, each vote having the same weight.

Quarterly Election   (10 days, 19 hours ago)
message to all nobles of Morek Empire
In just a few days, your realm will vote on the Banker (Coffermaster) position.
If you want to run for that position, you should probably start your campaign now.
All nobles of the realm will vote, each vote having the same weight.

No elections actually happened.   I tried to check the bug tracker but I can't remember my password.   I don't have time to make a new account right now.     Does anyone have more information about this?

Helpline / Did "Just Court" get nerfed?
« on: December 23, 2013, 03:50:16 PM »
Is this just incredibly bad luck or did holding court get nerfed?     in 5 turns in a row I've held a Just Court.   My Stats were in the 20's for Morale and loyalty.   First 3 times I only got 1% loyalty gain.    4th time court was disturbed.   5th time I got 0 gain.  I got the same message you get when you hold a just court and have 100% loyalty.   

Dwilight / auto correct

My auto correct changes Astrum to Satin. Should we read further into this?
