FW:ToW Conquest System: Early 12ABY / 2015 Season

by DarkForce » 10 Feb 2015, 05:04

Greetings Freeworlders!

During the last few weeks I've been working with faction leaders, members of the lore team and the development team to hammer out a worthwhile conquest system while the work on the mod's backend systems continues.

To that end, I'd like to present you with the finalized ruleset for this system. It's a bit lengthy, so I'm including a read-only link to the Google Doc for everyone to read:

Conquest System Ruleset

Please take note that there are still a few things that need to be hammered out before this is officially ready to go, but I expect to have those details set within a week.

Feel free to comment and ask questions! I'll be happy to answer!

Well, since I've got one of the first questions in regards to this, I guess I'll start the question thread...

(Excuse my double-commenting, but...) how are the ground attacks going to take place? As in, will there be just a handful of people, a couple units from an army, multiple armies, or a combination of them? Will it always be a fixed amount or will it be on a case-by-case basis?

At least one capital ship must escort the cargo ship for the goal to count.

Can we use capital ships as cargo ship and escort at one time ?

Capital ship and cargo ship have to be two separate craft

Will get to answering questions in a bit, but I merged your thread with the public posting of the rules, Axxif.

This topic isn't locked so feel free to post.

Very funny. But please keep this on-topic. Thanks.

On to the questions:

Axxif wrote:(Excuse my double-commenting, but...) how are the ground attacks going to take place? As in, will there be just a handful of people, a couple units from an army, multiple armies, or a combination of them? Will it always be a fixed amount or will it be on a case-by-case basis?


Scenario details will be provided by GM(s) prior to the start of the ground battle. The details of the battle will depend on the location and each side will have to follow the context of what the GM(s) have laid out. For instance:

Battle is over a small space station:
-GM states that the objective is to take over / protect (attacker / defender) the control room.
-Attacker has landed several squads of troopers to complete the objective. Defender has a roughly equal amount of security personnel to respond.

In this case, you're not going to be landing an entire army on the station because it's simply out of context. It just wouldn't fit.

Another instance might be a fight over a planet or moon. In that case, again, the GM will state the parameters of the battle and each side will have to respond in kind.

So to answer your question: It's a case by case basis. Attack modifiers and bonuses will be taken into account for each roll, but the number and variety of units at your disposal will change based on the scenario and will not make your attacks/defense any more/less powerful or successful than your modifiers and bonuses allow.

Axxif is correct. The capital ship must be the escort for the cargo ship and may not carry cargo of its own beyond what is stated in the rules.

Frost, I would use the CR90 as a cargo vessel and not an escort to be honest, you will want to defend convoys with dedicated combat ships (just sayin' ;) ).

It is in a grey area (why we call it both a cap and a trader) but you have to look at its capabilities. It can haul a decent amount of cargo as well as make long range jumps. It can fend off small groups of fighters by itself but not much else, and an organized fighter group can take it out or what it is escorting. It does not stand a chance if even a small capital like a Neb B or Marauder attacks. Which is why even though it is a capital (corvette class) it is more of a trader in my opinion.
