Actions in the Game Year 1406

Society Name: Aryisa



Action 1: Reinforce Northern Border

Actor: Regent Alvar III
Determinent: Military Force
Task: Normal
Reaction: Risky (Northern Razanian kingdoms could see as act of war)
Modifiers: + suspicions over revolt
+ Crusader support

The Regent, in an attempt to regain the face he has recently lost, orders the northern border of Aryisa closed. He sends the majority of the army north,which begis to construct small forts along the border.


-4 This should really have been a strategic action – these things take time (organising resources, materials, people and so on)…. However, I made this less negative than my first inclination was going to be, as Aryisan Craft is superb.

+2 –0 +1 +1 –4 + (+1 –1 +1 +1) = +2 Complete success.

Suggestion: The northern frontier is secured against any further Razanian incursions. The line of forts forms a strong barricade. Any defence in this area against the Razanians is at +1 unless circumstances change. Word of Asagmari engineering spreads throughout Qaiyore via the trade caravans, and the forts are given the name ‘The Timber Veil".


Action 2: Send diplomats to Aiexylsyban

Actor: Regent Alvar III
Determinent: Relations (none, therefore Mediocre)
Task: Easy
Reaction: Buissness as usual.
Modifiers: +Aryisan aid in flood relief

Following on last year's attempt, Alvar sends a second diplomatic mission to Aixelsyban, with orders to, if possible, establish a permanent embassy.

Result: -1 +1 +1 + (-1 –1 +1 0) = 0 Mixed results.

Suggestion: I’ll leave you and Tom to work this out….


Action 3: Undercut Guardian Power

Actor: Crusaders
Determinent: Influence
Task: Hard
Reaction: Risky
Modifiers: +recent Crusader sucesses
+recent Guardian failures

Result: +1 –1 +1 +1 + (+1 0 +1 0) = +4 Superior Success.

Suggestion: The Crusaders at +1 if they oppose anything the Guardians do, for the foreseeable future. The Crusaders have almost total control of the nation, and can virtually ignore the Regent.


Action 4: Reestablish Authority

Actor: Regent Alvar III
Determinent: Influence?
Task: Normal
Reaction: Risky
Modifiers: -- None of the nobles want to give up power

The Regent attempts to regain the respect he has lost during the past 2 years.

Result: +1 –0 –2 + (0 +1 +1 –1) = 0 Mixed results.

Suggestion: Alvar wins round most of the Guardians, but alienates more Crusaders. The Guardians approach him in a bid to end Crusader domination in the Grand Council. They suggest that perhaps Alvar should form an alliance with the Guardians and friendly Razanian or other neighbours in a bid to oust the Crusaders…..?
