Serva RP

Author File Description
File Details
Version: The Conquerors
Style: Role Playing Strategy
Number of players: 8

Serva is a map created for Roleplay(RP) purposes. Other words to describe it could be Realism or "The Death and Bane of CBA" as it is named for satire.

You will take control as leaders of 8 great Empires(and one Republic) the Trassaeu Empire(Blue), a nation of aggressive, competitive fishermen lead by Shogun Yoshimitsu. The Al Rubitians(Red), a place of science, technology, innovation, and discovery. With a strong starting economy and a decent all-around military, it is truly hell to fight against them. The Maelos Republic(Green), formed in rebellion. Resembles ancient Greece in that its infantry fight in a phalanx. Its cavalry and navy reign supreme on Serva. The Bretonnians(yellow) With their amazing archers and mercenary culture. The Fjordis(Teal) with raiders, pirates, privateers and merchants. The Order of Arthulin(purple), a mysterious religious Order devoted to the God of War, Arthulin. The Confederacy of United Nations(Grey) a tightly united group of small nations with powerful stone mason economy and buildings to rival everyone elses, except the Maelos. Finally, the Arkan Order(Orange), an order formed out of a division between the Order of Arthulin.

The Seas of Egressa RP was inspired by Serva(they had played my map before deciding to make theres) and it is with pride that the link to download it is included within the map file.

Ok, enough of my bragging. Time for the Game Setup info.

This map is meant to be played Diplomatically, Realistically, and Tactically. All rules can be read in Hints. But basically, don't attack without Declaring War. Declarations of War must be done with a reason. This reason doesn't have to be a GOOD reason, it just has to be a realistic reason that someone would start a war. For example, while starting a war to claim a gold mining site isn't a Good(as in heroic, nice) reason, it is a legit reason.
If someone attacks you early game, it is NOT a declaration of war. It is a diplomatic situation, sort it our yourselves. A Declaration of War is done the same way of declaring an Alliance. Tell the player you want to war with that you war with them, and switch them to Enemy in diplomacy screen. Everyone starts out neutral.

Me(Did the entire map, history, and invented the concept. Ok. Reinvented it.)
Corndawg(Refined some cities, and fixed some minor bugs.)
Majhudeen(Wrote some basic storyline and did some eyecandy. The Imperial Palace and Garden are his work.
Ravenstien(His map, Calradia, inspired me to create Serva.)
BF_Tanks(Added some contributions to the history and map design, and is a very good player of this map.)
Also. Play according to the rules and such explained above, or its not fun. Its only boring because you make it that way. Alright, enough of my talk now. Permanently. Enjoy the map, and post your questions(if any) here, as well as bug reports or CONSTRUCTIVE criticism, or just comment on how awesome the map is. Some people have already done so.

If this is supposed to be a multiplayer map, you need to make sure the respective players are set to "Either" in player type found in selection "PLAYERS" in the map editor.

Overall, this seems like fun, but I can see some players (note: at least half) being enormously under-balanced.
Basse Mashek, you are wrong. The player status only affects single player gaming, a human play can play as a computer players role when playing multiplayer.

Also, this map is very good :)

Mashek, about your under-balanced thing, I've played this map many times online and each one seems fairly balanced. Each person has won/participated in winning a game at least 20 times and some players even prefer the "unbalanced" civs over the Empire and Maelos that most people prefer.
joshua4missions Neat, I was on BF the other day looking at the pics and I looked in the Black smith for it but couldn't find it. Will download.

Payne's right here.
The balancing has been done across the enite game: resources, tech tree, civ, land size, naval power..
Also remember that player's aren't intended to fight alone all the time, and some players fit different roles.

Oh and payne, I'd like to review this for you.
Somewhen, when a lot of the RP-ers are on GR, can you warn me so I can make a room?
