Title: Idraei

All kinds of things :P


I'm kind of interested in Idraei, if only because of the fact that your capital has/had 3200 soldiers to 2800 population. I see that you're going feudal and Ascalon could use an interactive feudal neighbour. I've got some really nice interaction going on in Ascalon right now with smaller and bigger rivalries, some deaths and the tournament, but it's all limited to Ascalon itself. Adding Idraei into the mix would be nice.

One of the smaller city-state-guy-realm-things is at war With Asitet Anoth 'Bcuz Slumberblight'. As the new ruler of Asitet Anoth, I am working hard to increase our numbers and I am certainly not slumbered.
Brandenburg, their name was, since changed to something else.

Even though Ascalon is slow in annexing Idraei, the administration has moved landed and conquered a portion of the Northwestern part of the continent. The Kingdom of New Idraei has been founded, with special thanks to the Percy family because without them it wouldn't have happened most likely. A marriage with Xodor is in the works, Idraei is active if you wish to seem some activity. Conflict with Terra Vigila may come as well, depending on their attitude.

As the Ruler of Xodor and also having a char in Terra Vigila I hope this leads to some interesting rp in the northwest.I too thank the Percy family for they helped greatly before your arrival in the northwest.

With Suaralis giving in to the Duke of Terra Vigila, they are ready to join the Kingdom. The way that realms have found it better to join her than resist her is something I'm proud of and soon we shall be dominating the Northwest.

Why is Idraei attacking Children of Armok?

I've had border skirmishes with your Lioe of Yoka

But the background is that Lioe invaded territory already held by us, taking one town. Lioe then moved to another town, I moved forces there, set them on "defend", Lioe then ran away. Meanwhile I retook the first town (without combat as there were no troops), and moved my army there to defend it. Now, Lioe is attacking, and I hear from my liege that we are being accused of starting it. But the fact is, at this point to my knowledge, none of the people on our side have crossed the border into Idraei, or even physically engaged your people in combat, even when they were on our side of the border, taking over settlements.

Now I see Caspian Halfhaven is attacking and trying to kill minor nobles on our side.

As Lord Lu Bu, I can confirm most of this. While it is something I would prefer to deal with IC...


With the halfhaven thing, just remember that it is fairly common practise to attack slumbering nobles for their juicy XP. This COULD be a case of this, but I'm not sure.

Alexander duPhrense entered our territory with hundreds of men and is accused of raiding Sutaiten. We shall deal with it IC but just for clarification. As soon as I can establish diplomatic relations I will, I seek compensation for this disrespect.
Title: Re: Idraei
Post by: Insanegame27 on October 31, 2016, 09:44:23 PM
I play Alex too, and he hasn't raided anything (to my recollection). He passed through Idraei, but never attacked anyone even when he had the chance. The worst he did was take some rabble from an independant. He passed quite a few people he could have attacked quite easily. Also, he only had 150 men, not hundreds. Alex was literally just 'passing through'
Title: Re: Idraei
Post by: Cipheron on November 01, 2016, 03:02:27 AM
I ran into Alex yesterday down on the south coast with another one of my characters. So he's moving pretty damn fast for someone who is supposed to be engaging in combat and looting, with a large military force. And I don't think insamegamer or I are really the "raid" type of players. Also there should have been battle reports, but I saw none of those from Suitaten, while I did for Caspian, even though Moritor is almost twice as far from disputed Thyrailva than Suitaiten.

This accusation of "raids" from Yoka. Let's take a look at their own strategy: they invade our towns, take over, strip the resources (excessive trade shipments back home) then hop to the next town. Meanwhile, I retake the first town with a lone knight because they couldn't be bothered to install a garrison or defend it. That's raid behavior. Me thinks your vassal is manipulating you to start a border war so that they can extend their own territory, and they're projecting their own modus operandi onto our players.

Title: Re: Idraei

... Elaborate? What kind of play? The dirty kind of "Oh so they declared war on that one sub-country of ours for raiding one of their villages then complaining to the higher-ups when the village was retaken" <-- that kind of dirty war? or the 'Oh look they want to take back what's rightfully theirs. Sic em'


In other news, RASTOA had their first victory lately. Our brave Anna held them off at Infantry fields, which when retaken will be renamed in her honor.

Clearly making a subrealm is pure RP and not a special "tactic". So really the only complaint is: "we're trying to have a serious war and you're just being silly".

Insanegame27: no you're thinking of the other battle down south, and anna's forces are gone now, Idraei kicked out asses at infantry fields, gotta give them the right credit.
Title: Re: Idraei
Post by: Dystopian on November 04, 2016, 06:42:58 AM
No Im just saying Brogus is obviously a bullshit realm made to fuck with us. Its called fucking Brogus, named the town Brogus, and the formal name of the realm is

You is Brogus bitch now


Very RP like. Fun war though for the rest of it!


I have no complaints about anything else, not trying to accuse either of you of anything Im talking about Brogus the greatest Empire the world has known.

And Brogus lives on now in game lore. Sorry about the Brogus thing, he was a one-off gag character expected to get wiped out instantly, since we were being invaded. It really was just a gag about an illiterate moron who thinks he's an Emperor. But then Taka didn't put garrisons in his towns, and somehow Brogus runs around without any troops, ended up with actual territories.

Greetings, Idraei, from the Emperor of the Children of Armok. :)

Seems y'all popped up in my absence from the game. Hope y'all are having fun!

Out of curiosity, was it y'all who took out Pestilence and the final bastion of the Western Void?

Also curious if y'all took any of the Arrakeshi and Black Order lands you now occupy, or if that was prior to your existence as a nation.

I'm trying to figure out what's changed over the last few months, I've been away from the game handling RL.

Seems like Grand Fate friggin exploded. Whatever happened to those pansy forest dudes that were in the southern section of the Western Reach? They were pretty cool actually.

Have a good one and enjoy!

Hello Ehndras,

Thanks for your post on bay12 I don't think I would have ever found this game without it. The void slumberblighted along time ago. My duchy of Xodor took out the last estate of it. Also I don't even remember the Arrakeshi or the black order so those might also be old. Also the forest tribes got overran at some point I was not there so I don't know when.

Some bandits did overrun the void's main forsaken zone and some of void's players did gave up playing void or playing the game completely, Black Order's settlements were taken by other realms long long time ago.

We'll probably just have to give up since they are using every soul from bay12 (like a bunch of new people who will quit in a week) and have the Lowlands coming from everywhere for no reason as usual. Not mad just pointing out the obvious. We can't possibly win now when they are getting double the nobles and men from across the map, its just impossible.

Well I don't have a single char on either side of Battle, but as far as I know there are strong ties between some of Lowlanders and Armokians, some of them even has marriage ties, and having new souls is not a bad thing at all, and I don't think they did just come to the game to quit one week later.

I would not say it is every soul from bay12 for only a fairly small amount of the bay12 community seems to have commented on the thread of this game.(Of course that one thread about this game does seem to be more active then this entire forum but that is beside the point) and I will admit I did not have any high hopes of this war going in our favor since the beginning.

I am not in Armok. Also as for me helping I am still trying to get slumbering estates and I knew we did not have the army to fight theirs. As for the last part not all of them are quitting after the first week look at the newer realm of Kenos. It was formed by a bay12er.

I'm back, as one of the founding members of the Children of Armok and in fact the ruler for some time. I ain't some scrub fresh off the strets. :p

It should be noted that the Children and the Tors have had close ties going back a long time, to the opening of the West. The soldiers aren't coming out of nowhere - that's the Lowlanders being excited about an excuse to bash skulls. :p It's a bit of a drawback of the current state that it's easy for any conflict anywhere to be taken as an excuse for allies to pile on.

Fret not, this is a long, long, way from being every soul on B12. The thread just seems active because it has little flurries when exciting things happen. As a matter of fact, I'd say we have... about five B12ers in the CoA? And two of those are AFAIK only active in Asitet. The thread is a little confusing because it has folks like SaintofWar (better known as Weaver) and wereboar, who are slightly active elsewhere on B12 but actually are mostly there for the M&F thread. And Andrew, who's literally just there for the M&F thread.

Yes right, actually Children and most of Tors in Lowlands were enemies back at then, One of excuses that Lowlands declared independence from Rathgar was because of a peace Rathgar Elders made with Children of Armok, Lowlands are very sensitive about their Freedom, So it was a disgrace for them to have a realm that sometimes call itself Slaves of Armok as neighbour and Children were a hub for raids of Lowlanders so they didn't wanted any peace with them, after sometime Children of Armok started to pay tribute and gave lands to some of Lowland clans such as Tor Graves then some alliances were formed, The alliance first time showed itself In Tartarus and Children's war some of Lowlanders did helped the Children to fight back Tartarus, but most of Alliances that now exists between Children and Lowlands really doesn't have anything to do with the past relations, as those Old Tors either doesn't exist today or has seen change in leadership, The current alliances are mostly because of Marriage ties and a deal that one of Tors in Lowlands has with one of sub realms of Children.

Actually none of the lowlanders managed to turn up as of yet. Aeron is around, but only had about 60 troops with her. All the actual lowlanders are still traveling. The stuff in the war is all Armok gear.

Not enemies, per-se. Just... Neutral - meaning we could fight or work together at a whim, on a Tor-by-Tor basis. (worked this out early-on in the Children's formation, thanks to the Lowlands) When I created the Children, we had no issues with one another realy. We were rivals and then allies of Tor Graves due to proximity, after they screwed me over, and then redeemed themselves with honor. Tor Kortaur were the first to show me kindness and we reciprocated, and I forged bonds with Ascalon, Eldamar, Arrakesh, and a few other nations with a hearty volume of RP and diplomacy. It was a glorious time indeed.

That war to rebuke the Tartarian invasion was amazing. SUCH a close conflict! A butterfly's wings could have changed the course of our history forever. Definitely the most fun I've had in M&F.

A number of our eastern front worked with a number of Tors, and fought against yet another number. Seems, in the end, they managed to strike a balance. Previously, it had been pretty much chaos.

I gave land to Tor Graves as thanks for them helping us against Tartarus. We were bitter rivals for a while, but I managed to convince Graves it'd be in our mutual interest to work together. Good thing, too. I also gave away other territories to Tor Kortaur and a number of neighboring nations, because we were at our corruption limits and it was making production a total pain in the ass. If anyone paid anyone tribute, it was after my passing.

We had the Ascalonians (Talonclaw), plus the... What the hell were they called? That Cyan nation above Ascalon's Western Reach territories (some of which I used to own) with the dude who married a bunch of women simultaneously and pissed off the Armokian royal princess who didn't want to be wife #4 :P. The Black Order stayed mostly neutral, until Tartarus made a mistake and stepped on the wrong person's toes. Arrakesh even came in for the LULZ, because they had fuck-else to do and Urist's daughter married the prince of Arrakesh and had a kid, so we had marriage ties to call upon. Casus Belli, chyeh.

If I'm not mistaken, the Vanhalens intermarried early-on. Tor Kortaur were our first Tor-friends. Graves our first true rivals. And finally, that prick from Tartarus our first true enemy.

As it stands, Urist is now... Single. Some prick bandit killed Cognizine (tried damn hard, too, kept coming back over, and over, and over again) so the Blood Empress has fallen. The Ascalonian, Arrakeshi, Grand Fate, and other bloodlines all died at some point during the last year.

The ONLY Armokian lineage that survived the chaos is Urist's Grand-Daughter Yxevarii Tarzath Varakhul Vendaran (http://mightandfealty.com/en/character/view/5469), daughter of the prince of Arrakesh.

Everyone else is dead. :|

Urist must be a god-damn monster to have survived this long. Bloody hell.

Interestingly, this presents a, ah, unique opportunity.

Urist is single, and yet fertile. Thank those blessed Dwarven genes for that.

Are there dating websites for 1,000 year old bearded demi-gods?

Time to spread the seed of Armok once more. ;)

I think the names of these wars really have to take the cake in the history of Might & Fealty. No wars have ever been more confusing,


The Defense of the RASTOAn Coalition from the Idraei; Subsequent reclamation (http://mightandfealty.com/en/war/view/27)


In Defense of the Sovereignty of the Majestic Kingdom of Idraei against the Rastoan Invaders (http://mightandfealty.com/en/war/view/28)


Pretty amazing history we are making here, cheers Tom wherever you are.

I gotta say... The Idraei's declaration of defense "Pushing the aggressors back to the East of Pageliegh"
ha
haha
hahahahaha
Anyone who's been in the area more that a day knows that RASTOA has been in that area. Idraei named their war poorly. RASTOA was just punishing the Yokans who dared push into their borders then cry for help when the RASTOAns retook their settlements.

At this time, Idraei occupies territory I personally owned, along with my vassals; members of a few different nations. Arrakesh, the Void, Black Order, Ascalon, Horselords, and so many more. Though much of this land historically pertains to the Children and their Allies, the world keeps on spinning as newblood rises from the wellsprings of the old.

The idea that RASTOA are invaders is some seriously humorous political contortionism worthy of the history books. :P

Borders change - people go inactive - things remain fluid, and that is just how politics go as the world forever changes and new nations spring up to fill the power vacuum... But the nature of this little conflict put a smile on my face. :D

I wish all Idraeians fortune, fortitude, and hope we can put this conflict behind us to achieve a sense of cooperation and brotherhood.

As rivals, we can pick at each other until we inevitably fail. Wasting valuable resources in a futile back-and-forth which will see us both depleted and weakened.

As friends - we can reconcile the disparity that concentrates power in the old mainland - transforming our Western Reach into a true powerhouse of influence and might.

Old Eldamar, Arrakesh, Sarantium, Rathgar, and so many more have suffered from the inevitable demise of slumberling Lords - rendering their historic estates fallow - resources and manpower frozen in time as they decay into memory.

The time has come for the Children of Armok to rise again - and with us, our Idraei neighbors.

We stand upon the cusp of a fledgling revolution - set to sweep across the known world.

If we concentrate our forces, there is no telling what feats of greatness we might accomplish.

Better now, while the world stands reeling at the wholesale demise of aging power structures.

Better now, while we have the manpower and means to expand.

Better now, before someone comes along and claims the power which stands free for the taking.

What say you, sons of Idraei?

Can we find common ground for the sake of our peoples and the Western Reach?

The clock is ticking, and our time has come.

We could just start it up again. I have a lot of troops just sitting there getting edgy. What's stopping me isn't reinforcements, it's that the corruption from taking over another 30+ settlements would be annoying, and I'd need to keep recruiting people to give the settlements to. Invading is the easy part.

Title: Re: Idraei
Post by: Insanegame27 on November 25, 2016, 07:46:01 AM
Well, I had hoped to re-educate Edward into a loyal knight of the new New Idraei.


Dystopian, if you could add a death cause to your characters rather than a simple blank, that'd be great. In a way, Caspian never got his wish. He said he would die fighting before he let himself fall into Armokian hands.


So a rough and completely unformatted (still no IC post yet) draft of the peace terms is that Elendenna and Lu Bu would become married, Idraei would change their realm allegiance to RASTOA (which would be renamed the Western (Con)Federation of RASTOA) and (through a separate treaty) Suaralis would change their realm allegiance to RASTOA and the ruling party of Suaralis would be given the position of Second Consul. This would show practically all of the NW under one realm under the 'sovereign realms' tab of the map layers. Suaralis, Idraei and RASTOA would function as a sort of parliament for decisions. Each ruler of Idraei's subservient realms would be given a position on the Cursus Honorum, the political diagram for RASTOA.
In terms of reparations, King's Duchy would be absorbed into either Dubh Dun, RASTOA or Xodor (I'm thinking of giving it to Xodor as an 'engagement present') and Yoka would be disbanded and any survivors outlawed. Terra Vigila would not need to pay reparations unless they continue to fight.


I did originally envision Soviet Armokia for the Western Confederation, but nah.

Post by: Insanegame27 on December 01, 2016, 09:52:35 PM
I kinda went for 'The people have the real power' by making the Emperors mere figureheads unless they also are elected into the honorum. So we have a Confederation in that it's entirely your choice to stay or leave, which is also an empire because figurehead Emperor/Empress, which is also a republic, because Cursus Honorum.


I do have concerns about it though. Namely we need immense numbers of players to make it work. Even if I halve most senatorial position (12 tribunes rather than 24), we're still looking at ~30 active nobles needed.

But of course, you never had the Chinese in power in Rome.

Hey I'm hearing that apparently people are saying Idraei aka Western Confederation troops fought against Ascalon in the recent war and that Ascalon is going to retaliate.

I'm sort of wondering whether that's actually physically possible in the time from when the war start to the point at which Ascalon started saying they were attacked by Western Confederation.

Rob lost his first city, Berry on date 13-28-5, whereas I first got wind of the anti-WC thing on 13-33-6, so 5 game-weeks later, or a total of 31 game days (~7.5 actual days) between the first wave of attacks and when Ascalon started to call for help against Western Confederation / Armok.

i'm kind of doubting whether it's even physically possible to get troops from the Western Confederation to that area within that time frame. Presumably you wouldn't march through Ascalon to get there, so you'd land north then trek inland. I'm not sure of the exact speed but I have 120 troops with one guy, and it would take around 15 game-days to travel a comparable land distance as the distance that Tor Nidsik is inland. So with 240 troops, 30 game-days just for the final land trek.

And the active ports of Western Confederation are all in Terra Vigila, so you'd have to sail from the south coast all the way around. Quick estimate for that is maybe 5 (actual) days or so of sea travel. Add a couple of days preparation, and the total one-way trip looks like being about 2 weeks, putting the start well before the fighting even began.

So, nix on western involvement in any anti-Ascalon war.

btw what might explain the whole thing, is that quite a while ago, some Armok-associated people sent some troops to Tor Nidsik for the express purpose of fighting against the Halfhavens (Etstes Imperium / Northmen), because the Halfhavens have been the blood enemies of Armok since the October 2016 war. My guess is that some of these troops were still in the local garrisons when Ascalon took over.

Additionally, the October War between Armok, Suaralis and Idraei was an extremely messy war between newbies. Suaralis switched sides twice during the war, we stole undefended cities off each other, then stole their troops which happened to be training, lots of armies were patched together from the border region, because we had terrible planning. Basically we were making it up as we went. So we ended up with large jumbled armies from sources in all three nations. I doubt anyone ever sat down and sorted those troops by which town they came from, so when they were given away, they were jumbled up by nationality and origin town.
Title: Re: Idraei
Post by: Andrew on April 22, 2017, 05:06:22 PM
No, no, no, you see what's happening is Ascalon is trying to reclaim the old Duchy that Flambard seceded with, so that Rothrik can give it to Vanessa as a wedding present, but during the fighting they noticed that all the soldiers they're seeing as militia in the cities they take say they were trained in parts up north, and Vanessa said she can't have any of that and told Rothrik that his present sucked and she'd never marry him. So, to take out his anger Ascalon is going to salt the north with the blood of the Tors.

In all seriousness though, Ascalon has seen a good number of militia from captured cities having origins in the Armok / WC / RASTOA area. This was mentioned somewhere. Ascalon has never had any intention of going further north or attacking any other realms, and the aid they called was to secure a different border just in case things got heated and they had to pull out the reserves.

Title: Re: Idraei
Post by: Cipheron on April 22, 2017, 05:15:48 PM
I edited in the explanation as I see it. Those troops are probably the ones provided to Tor Nidsik a fair while ago, the in-character reason was that Tor Nidsik were engaged in fighting Northmen/Halfhavens at the time, and the halfhavens were the blood enemies of the Armok/Rastoa coalition.

btw Andre, one of the highlights for me was a new knight I'd made as a scout, who took an undefended enemy town, then troops trained there a day later. He then took those troops and managed to break into an enemy walled city, capture it, then held out against enemy attacks long enough for allied units to secure it.

Fascinating. I am amazed how this war has so many sides to it. From what I've heard, and I am not involved in it, is that Ascalon is getting steamrolled by thousands of Lowlanders, Armokian etc etc. and is asking for help. Misinformation abounds, it would seem. Which makes sense in a semi-medieval simulator like this one.
