Society Name: Celpalar
Action 1 (&2) Expand trade.
Type: Strategic, external
Description: This action aims at making trade with the Laria'Rathis a global matter: I want to sell their goods and products all over the world and import for them all they might need. Final goal is a large increase of my trade.
Actors: Commercial navy (size: great) and traders all over Quaiyore.
Secrecy: Real origin of the goods sold and real destination of those bought. We say they are from and for our new colonies on Golaren and on the islands.
Basic Determinant: Trade Great (+2)
Secondary Determinant: Trade with L'R (+2 rolled for last year). I want to translate this determinant into my global trade determianant ( a +1 would be enough). Also secondary philosophical orientation: Trade ( I can give up this one if you wish or substitute it if need be...)
Weight: Double (+1)
According to my own new policy I renounce giving myself pluses out of nowhere. (like +1: L'Rs want stuff or +1 whole new stuff to sell or the suberb trading house we have in Tol Naur, built last year) Obviously I won't give myself minuses either. (Maybe I will if some is called for by the rules or dices)
Results -1 +2 (-1 +1 +1 +1) +1 = +5 Complete Success
Suggestion: Trade is successful and everyone profits. +1 to trade and wealth for the next 5 years.
Action 3. Set up new colonies. cf L'R actions for 1417
Time: Year 1 of 3
Results so far +1 -1 +3 (+1 -1 +1 -1) + () + ()
Action 4. Build the School of Magic. cf L'R actions for 1417.
Type: Strategic, Internal
Description: Build a common school of magic, near Tol Naur, on Golaren island.
Secrecy: To foreigners.
Primary determinant: Ressources: Good. I disagree with my good friend Nathan on this one: he's taking the Prime det. from a political leader, i also can say it's an order of the ephors and get a +2 from it. But i think that giving the order and bulding the school is not the same thing: one is political while the other is technical. I assume the political side is ok, since it was in our treaty last year; So i focus on the technical part. Obviously it's harder for me this way, but it seems righter. It is not because a leader is a god-king that his fellows are able builders. If it was so, democracies (weak leadership) would never have defeated dictatorships...
Secondary determinant: Magic Prevalence Fair (+0) (more honest than sophistication, unless you are building the school with magic forces) I also disagree that religion should be used here as a determinant, whatever religious the L'R may be.
Modifiers: + 1 L'R help
+1 -2 +1 (0 -1 0 +1) = 0 Mixed results.
Suggestion: It is built but they don't get as much out of it as they wanted
Action 5.Type: External diplomatic
Results: +1 0 +1 (+1 -1 0 0) = +2 Success
Suggestion: relations improve by a +1.
