Lords of the Earth, Campaign 11, Turn 71
I am using all of the house rules Phil has passed on to me. I am
considering what will be kept and what will change, but I assure you
that I do not plan on making any changes quickly, or lightly. I will
let you know as I consider them.
Please take a look at the map
in your area and let me know of any differences between it and what is
on your stat sheet
RULES IN USE 5.9.2
So if you don't have a copy either download them from the Throneworld
site or order a paper copy from Thomas!
Any cultivated region can be colonized to 2gp by spending 15gp and
15nfp per level Any named Island can be colonized to 1gp (with a few
Any or all of your support cost can be paid by nfp at 1nfp = 2gp
Recruitment A Merchant house, Open Nation, or Secret Empire may spend
gp in 25gp blocks to attempt to get nfp for Megalithic Projects. Base
amount is 1d6 -1 for open nations and -2 for SEs. Note to SEs zero or
less nfp result may get you exposed.
I am using the Lords 17 combat system.
Note that the Combat values for Warships are what they are worth in
land combat. For Naval comabt they are as follows:
HEW = 3, HW = 2, EW = 2.25, W = 1.5, XEW = 1.5, XW = 1
Troops on ships Elite Infantry any Type = 1.5
Regular Infantry any Type = 1
Inexperienced Infantry, All Cav, Siege, ART = 0.5
Lords 11 Unit Conversion
Each point of cavalry and infantry represents 500 fighting men.
A warship or transport point = 1 ships with 500 men aboard each
A siege point = 500 sappers or 5 ballista, catapults, siege
engines, trebuchets or battle towers.
A field fort point = 1 fort manned by 500 men each.
A wall point = 10 feet of city wall ramparts.
Because I don't like "Magic" Numbers I am using percentages for
basically all bonuses i.e. normally for every 5 ap extra spent on an
action you get a +1. Now each ap is worth +0.20. So 5ap still gets you
+1 but instead of 4ap being useless it has an 80% chance of getting you
a +1. Same basic system is used for gp bonuses
Please note that there is a maximum useful university level, 10 is the
max you will want and then only if you are a theocratic caste slave
state for each that you aren't subtract one, if society and/or economic
is open subtract one each, if half of your income is from cities or
trade subtract another one. So somewhere in the 5 to 7 range will max
you out. Maybe less depending on your religion and location in the world
Note one-way arrows are just that one way. So if you want to explore
them you send someone off and they have to explore till they find a way
back. This may take more than one turn.

The Minomoto Shogunate
Minomoto no Razan Kanagasaki Shogun
Waves washed on the shore of Saga from across the Tsushima Strait,
large waves like a storm but without the wind... Following the waves
came a ship, a messenger from the fleet in Shirai. The earth had shaken
fiercely in Chejudo destroying roads and villages. The city of Shirai
had been thrown into the sea and the fleet Admiral missing, his ship
crushed at the wharf. The fleet captains had panicked and fled as
quickly as possible, at times over running each others vessels trying
to make it to open water and out of the way of the waves which
smashed out of Shirai harbour. Finally, a senior captain rallied the
fleet and with some ships unaccounted for, returned to the ruins in
Chejudo. More than half of the city of Shirai had vanished under the
waves and the populace scattered to the hills. Still the ground shook,
not as fiercely, not as often, but a reminder of what had passed.
Fortresses were built next to Sendai, Suunto, Nagasaki and Nan Matol
and those grew up around them.
An heir was finally born to the nameless shogun, a daughter was born in
1252, and a son in each 1254 and 55.

Sultanate of Iraq
Having changed his mind regarding peace with his neighbors, Merkid
gathered his army of 200,000 men and his best generals and marched off
to war. He quickly captured Palmyra and it's city and continued on to
Aleppo heading for the capital in Antioch. The fortifications of Aleppo
proved more dangerous than expected and Merkid son and heir Ogadai died
along with thousands of troops overcoming the defenses and another
general was captured and taken in to Antioch. Enraged by the death of
his son, Merkid stormed the city walls. As if Allah himself had turned
against them, the Iraqi army killed only themselves on the walls of
Antioch. Merkid had not realized Aleppo had more than 270,000 soldiers
inside those walls.
Merkid's second in command saw the Sultan's banner disappear as his
company was overrun in a counterattack. Realizing that Merkid was gone,
he ordered a retreat to Palmyra with little more than half of the once
Word travelled quickly that Merkid was gone. Back in Baghdad, the
commander of Baghdad, declared Prince Ogadai's son to be heir and
sultan, and declared himself regent. The General in Palmyra rejected
this claim and declared himself King of Iraq, leaving a garrison behind
in Palmyra, he took the army back to Baghdad, where, forces loyal to
Merkid arrested the General and executed him in the main square of the
city. The Regent assumed control of the remaining forces.
THE KARIMID SULTANATE OF ALEPPO
Udi ad Din Walid, Sultan of Aleppo
The Iraqi invasion hit Aleppo hard, but Antioch was strong and the
Iraqi army broke like the tide on the walls and retreated to Palmyra
leaving behind a valuable prisoner, the Sultan Merkid himself! When
word came of civil war in Iraq, and the retreat of the Iraqi army from
Palmyra, Walid had his forces clean up in Aleppo, and ordered a grand
Mosque to be built in Antioch to give thanks for their lives. The Iraqi
issue would be dealt with in time.
AL BATNAH HORDE
Sheik Mohammad, Defender of the One
There was much grumbling and chaos in Mohammad's army culminating in 3
of his soldiers attacking his tent in the night. The three were caught
and under torture revealed that they had been armed by missionaries
from the Servants of the Great Shaman. A cry went out and it was found
that more missionaries were active in the region. They were driven out
and Mohammed regrouped his army for the march.
He led 230,500 men south in to Gurgan where he crushed the local
tribes, converting them to Shia.
He repeated this process in Khurasan where some 10,000 local tribesman
fell to his sword without slowing his army. He proceeded through
Dasht'Kavir, Khvor, and Dasht'E Lute, before coming to Shadad in late
1255. From Khurasan to Shadad he crushed the local tribes, converted
them to Shia, and settled his people, losing about 17,000 men along the
way, but establishing a new Shi'ite nation in the region.

Horde Diplomacy: none
With the horde camped in Matadi, Khan regrouped his army of still some
269,000 men to prepare to continue the destruction of Kongo. In the
ruckus of preparations and training, a group of infantrymen stormed the
central camp of the tribal council, setting fire to the tents and
slaying the guards. Factionalism seemed to spread quickly through the
army as soldiers from different villages struck out against each other.
Khan grabbed a spear and rallied troops, killing those who would not
listen. But there were too many and in the chaos, the Khan was struck
down and bled to death in the mud of Matadi.
Samali, Lord and Regent of Bakongo
Bishop-general Lantali ran south to Matadi with sacks of gold for the
Omote horde. Some meetings had been arranged with soldiers of the
horde, and he paid them well as had been promised. The soldiers then
raced back to the main encampment cheering and rallying their fellow
villagers as they joyfully set fire to the camp and struck down their
former comrades. The camp was broken and Lantali sent word to back to
King Naboto and General Samali of his success. General Samali brought
the army down to Matadi to clean up the remnants of the horde that had
not fled back up the Kongo.
King Naboto was relieved by the victory. The back of his oppressor was
broken, and with luck, his nation had been saved. More joyous still was
the birth of a son and a daughter from his wife. He would finally have
an heir. Out on a hunt celebrating the birth of his son, King Naboto
was bit by serpent and died before he could be returned to Mukenko.
Upon hearing of Naboto's death, General Samali declared he would
safeguard the Kingdom for Naboto's infant son, and future King of
