Any bets on realms capsizing?
« Topic Start: February 08, 2014, 11:09:59 PM »
Well, with masses of monsters running over the entirety of Dwilight, anyone want to give a guess on how many or which realms might be crashing this winter, barring further developments? Monsters during autumn will mean an unprecedented famine across Dwilight, which already had so much food to start with  ::)

Try not to give away too much IG info, or whatever it is  that we aren't allowed to do...

It doesn't look good for Phantaria, although it already didn't look good for them.

Morek will survive.  It will hurt, but they will survive.  I am curious who well be the first to go.  I think someone will fall over this.

How are all realms doing? Seems Barca is suffering quite a lot. Luckily they don't have any large cities to feed.

Phantaria's ruler declared it dead and ceded its territories elsewhere before this began.

That's what happens when your armies are abroad at the time of an (unexpected) invasion. :(

We'll see it through fine, but there are lots of rogues everywhere and this means less food.

Which means less surplus to feed D'Hara :)

Won't there be less mouths to feed as well? As long as realms don't get overrun by rogues, they reach an equilibrium.

If I were to bet, I'd say Astrum and Phantaria won't make it through winter...with D'hara diminished.

Realms tend to lose rural regions to rogues, seriously diminishing their food production. The high density regions, like cities, tend to not be lost until they starve to death.
If at first you don't succeed, don't take up skydiving.

Indeed. If you start seeing signs of starvation, you need to abandon your city of highest population first but usually those produce most gold. Either you need to recover your rural regions fast or make a hard choice.

They most certainly do have large cities to feed.

Unfortunately convincing people to starve the biggest city isn't always easy.

I certainly hope Barca doesn't die. Morek seems too huge to die.

It takes more than a few monsters to defeat Barca. And the current monster within Barca are a greater threat to those who rely on Barcan food than to Barca itself.

Astrum is in serious trouble, but the good news is starvation wont be an issue because most of our peasants starved to death during the war.
