Simzhou Skirmish Sign-up.

Postby ShadInquis » 03 Jul 2018, 21:32

Character Creation
This thread is for signing up for the skirmish minigame and setting up your unit. You may simply use an existing Simzhou character you have, or create a new one as per existing rules.

Troop creation
You then create your troop, either solo, or as a group with other officers. If you are setting up a group, you will need to decide your own chain of command, but at the very least, you must select an overall commander of your team.

As an officer responding to the call to arms, you will be granted some men for patrols and investigations. This unit will start with the following:
* 100 men (0 Training)
* 300 rations (100 men eat 30 rations/day)
* 10 gold for expenses and materials of the unit
* 4/10 morale
* 10 auxiliaries (camp followers for plot/non-combat activity)


Each officer in the group then picks from one of the following bonuses to flesh out the unit:
1. Extra soldiers: +50 men
2. Trained troops: 30 men in the unit have (100) training
3. Bows: +30 bows for men
4. Heavy arms or horses: +10 HA or Horses, (since these are not avaliable in the city armories, their avaliablility is smaller)
5. Extra auxiliaries: +20 auxiliaries
6. Elite auxiliaries: +10 stat bonus to any plot/other activity with auxiliaries, immunity to critical fails on such activities
7. More resources: +50% to initial gold or food for the unit
8. Personal bodyguards: 10 men, 5 for lieutenants, with 100 training, who specifically protect the character. They can replace you in forced duels and help in other dangerous situations, like being unconscious.
9. Fisherman rafts: upgraded rafts giving +5 defence and +1 movement (+2 with Navy).
10. Sailors: 30 men have 20 training and better stats in water (-10 instead of -20 without Navy, +10 instead of +5 with Navy).
11. Better building tools: +10 bonus to any construction activity (depending on activity, it can be cost, construction speed, building bonuses...).


If you have multiple troop types, (Infantry, Archers, Cavalry...) you will need at least one officer for each unit type.

Finally, if any officer in your group has the Tactician Skill, you may select a Campaign that your troop (including any sub-units) will follow until it returns to the city:
Standard Campaign: This is the default Campaign. It offers no bonuses or penalties. If you don't pick a Campaign Type, it is assumed that you are using a Standard Campaign.

Aggressive Campaign: This Campaign emphasizes decisive attacks. The army gains Attack Power, but loses Defense and is more easily affected by enemy ploys.

Defensive Campaign: This Campaign is very cautious. The unit has an improved chance of evading enemy ploys, but loses Attack Power.

Endurance Campaign: This campaign focuses on keeping up the stamina of the army for the long haul. Food consumption increases by 10% and MP decreases by 1, but TP regeneration will increase by 10 and morale will be more likely to remain constant or increase.

Starvation Campaign: This campaign minimizes the use of food by the army, consuming 10% less food but increasing the likeliness of morale loss and failure to perform Commands.

Stealth Campaign: This campaign increases the stealthiness of the army, increasing the success of using Elude Movement, Ambush and Raid, but reducing the unit's MP by 1.

Strategic Campaign: This campaign focuses on use of ploys and trickery rather than outright combat, giving a bonus to success of Ploys but reducing the success rate of Commands and slightly decreasing Attack.


Once you have finalised you decisions, you can list your team and the members as shown in the example below:
Patrol Force "Crouching Kitten"

Leader: Liu Shentong 70-90-60-30-60 Duelist, Navy, Raid, Stealth, Valor, Weaponmaster(e)
Lieutenant: Huang Dong 69-55-70-70-69 Ambush, Arson, Duelist, Loyalty, Mobility, Navy, Weaponmaster
Lieutenant: Li Jun (160) 90-60-70-30-60 Aid, Blitz, Charge, Leader, Scout, Vehemence

Chief of Auxiliaries: Cai Bin 5-10-60-95-85 Articulate. Negotiator(e), Propaganda, Networking, Rumor, Wealth, Riot

Troop picks:
Trained troops: 30 men in the unit have (100) training
Bows: +30 bows for men
Personal bodyguards: 5 guards for Cai Bin
Fisherman rafts: upgraded rafts giving +5 defence and +1 movement (+2 with Navy).

I'll sign up, and I assume this is fairly simplified and self-contained so Officer Info just goes here rather than the old OI thread. If tracking things becomes necessary I'll start tracking it there, though it seems more like Troop-level things need tracking rather than Officer stuff.

So signing up with:
Shi Xiang (170)
75-45-80-65-60
Cunning(e), Scribe, Tactician, Wile


* 100 men (0 Training)
* 300 rations (100 men eat 30 rations/day)
* 10 gold for expenses and materials of the unit
* 4/10 morale
* 10 auxiliaries (camp followers for plot/non-combat activity)
* Troop Picks: Elite Auxiliaries (+10 stat bonus to plots/other activities with auxiliaries)




I don't expect Crafting will be involved in this but Scribe is there for RP consideration anyway. Also I would like to see if any more people pop in for purposes of group-making rather than statting out a solo troop right now if possible.

Do you want do go solo, or form a team? Either is fine, though teaming up can help to cover for secondary stats.

Aslo, feel free to RP your character signing up at the garrison, I will RP the NPCs.

Yeah, feel free to wait until you find a group.

I'll join if the other old guard captains are still around. It really wouldn't do for Jiang Yan to run around alone now, eh?

True. Jiang Yan could end up doing more damage than the enemy if he is running alone.

OK. Don't forget, you can ask (and RP) forming a team with others (except Fei Lai, who explicitly said he wants a solo team).

I will reiterate that teams can cover each other members' weaknesses to a certain extent, and are strongly recommended if you have multiple soldier types in your troop.

Just imagine me waiting on the side for the current conversation with Li Sheng to end so I can approach him without butting in.

As far as troop types go, well... Bows would certainly put me somewhere safer, but I don't have any, and the only person with bows is far more qualified to lead them I think. Maybe there'll be some sort of troops for auxiliaries exchange going on though, who knows.

If you want to RP, you can join in whenever. As for troop types, if you have a team, you can split the troop command for battle however you want:

Officer 1 leads archers, officer 2 leads the infantry
or
Officer 1 leads 50 men, Officer 2 leads another 50.
or
Officer 1 leads infantry, Officer 2 leads auxiliaries for support
etc.

Basically, since most troops are basic infantry with little training, with leaders they perform much better.
