Lately, we’ve been working on events database and code, so we didn’t have much to show. Now we are back :)
In today’s devlog - war and conquest!
The map screen in Be the Ruler is not just for show. From there, you can try to conquer your neighbor’s province, or you can send spies to other countries. This is how the conquest looks like right now:
One successful attack can get you one province. During the battle, you use your prestige and resource points to make your army more effective. You should do this carefully because if you lose the fight, you lose all the points used. And these points are crucial for you to stay on the throne.
Consequences of lost battles depend on various factors. You can, for example, lose your prestige, lose a province to the Vikings, or your subjects in the area can convert to Norse faith.
Aside from the map, opportunities to declare wars present themselves also within story events. If, for example, your brother - who was plotting against you - flees to another kingdom, you have a pretty good reason to go there after him.
You need to be aware of your neighbors and your status as a king. If you are an aggressive conqueror, other kings can ally against you and attack your borders.
