Forum Risk - Italy, c. 1300, maintained by Jontiben
Rules: Pick any country on the map. You will stay with that country for the rest of the game.
Attacking: To attack, just say "[My Country] attacks [Other Adjacent Country]". I'll take care of the rest. You may only attack once per day.
How many territories does each attack take? To figure that out, just quote your post and take the last digit of the post number, and divide it by two, rounding up if necessary. Then add your territories divided by 12. (Normally it's 10, but this is a smaller map). The equation is (substituting "n" for post number, "a" for attack (number of territories taken), and "t" for territories): a=n/2+t/12
You also don't gain as many territories if you have more active players. Here is the graph: (credit to Muenzen for the original)
1 1 2 1 3 0,9 4 0,8 5 0,7 6 0,6
Here's an example: Naples attacks the Papal States, and gains 9 territories from it. Naples, however, has 3 active players. 9x0,9=8 (in this game, it is always rounded down)
What about alliances and cease-fires?
You agree to them, and break them on your own.
Notes: The territory divisions I created were based off modern Italian and medieval Italian area borders, and then I chopped them up with geographical (and some random) divisions.
Naples, Aragon and Norman Sicily are technically supposed to be the same thing, but each one alone would have been so big it wouldn't have been fair. And they don't have unbreakable truces, because that wouldn't be fair either. It's all-out war for the Italian Peninsula.
