    Solium Infernum: The REAL Politics of Realpolitik

    Cast Yer Ballots!

    Despite the efforts of those who would see it dead, Solium Infernum calls us once again for some slow-cooked malevolence. (Continued from the Rock, Paper, States thread)

    Ol' Satan's busy with The 2016 Political Season only starting to ramp up, and while he's busy producing smear ads his chair seems to be a tad, erm, empty. Not to be outdone, Hell's decided to have a little election of its own!

    Run your campaign:
    Tour the four non-Euclidean corners of Hell, greeb for electoral funds, prove your prowess in matters militaristic and establish yourself as an exemplar of charm and wit with every gutteral utterance. See if you can max out your hidden "Vanity" stat!

    Choose your Vice Vassal, should you have one:
    Because every demon tyrant needs a cowering peon by his side.

    Crush your rivals—and your friends! This is Solium, after all.

    Meet the incumbents!
    -Sabrage! (That's me!)
    -DigitalPariah! (Representing the Olde Worlde!)
    -Elusiv3Pastry! (Hell's hiddenest piecrust!)
    -Titus Groan! (Needs no introduction!)
    ...and special celebrity guest demon, -Heliocentric!

    I would encourage, for maximum enjoyment and investment, that we confine all tabletalk to the in-game messaging system and this thread. That said, I may poke you on Steam if I don't see your .trn, and I'll end out and official email blast every time I process a new turn. Deviousness, nastiness, backhandedness, sinister dealings, name-calling, role-playing and purple prose are all encouraged in the utmost.

    Map:
    Acheron's Locks
    Map Size:
    Small/Normal/Large
    Place of Power Frequency: None/Rare/Uncommon/Common
    Game Length: 10/15/20/25
    Recification Content: No/Yes
    Infernal Census: No/Yes

    Perhaps I should have renamed myself Devilish Angelfood Cake for this session.

    I think you'll find the poll fairly conclusive (please ignore all votes other than mine, as they are null and void)

    I hate you all,

    I'd like to suggest, should anyone fall off the grid/have a tragic accident I'll be more than happy to fill in, now where did I leave my toolbox?

    Well, there's no changing the poll now, but it looks like Viral Frog is out of the running. I have yet to hear from Sal Paradise so we may possibly have another spot, or I'll just roll on with five Monday (tomorrow) morning should nobody invested chime in.

    What are you using to transmit turns? Email, file hosting, demonic FTP, blood network?

    Dropbox has served me just fine and I see no reason to change my ways now.

    Then it's five for fighting, and we'll fight as five. Initial invitations are out.

    So, an interesting make up to proceedings.

    No starting legion is less than 13 stat total, and non higher than 14.
    Ellusive is a shoe in for the +Diabloism building, significant.

    Here are my combat notes, in case anyone is new and will benefit, I'd be happy to explain them.

    My Legion 2,5,7 Level 3 9HP
    Theatre of Sloth 7,1,1 Level 2 6HP

    Each round is likely to play out in order, with no effects, I will win the level roll 21 times out of 36 and then D3 will be added to the winners stat in that round.

    Ranged round 1, I will lose 2-8 hp
    Melee round 1, I will win by 1-7HP (possible victory estimate ~35%)
    Infernal round 1, I will win by 3-9HP(possible victory estimate ~60%)
    Ranged Round 2 I will lose 2-8 hp (possible Defeat estimate ~4%)
    Melee round 2, I will win by 1-7HP (possible victory estimate ~1%)
    Infernal round 2, I will win by 3-9HP (Assured Victory)

    So, it is victory or death then! No draws for me!

    My estimate percentage is weighted towards considering my level advantage, as I'll win the level roll ~40% more.

    Great tips here btw

    I'm confused. Isn't the combat results more straightforward. I mean, on the infernal round you deal 6 damage, not more, not less. Or am I missing something?

    From section 4.16 in the SI manual:
    "Battlefield Advantage: Before each battle, both combatants roll 1d6 and add their level. The higher roll awards that combatant a small bonus in a random, non-zero combat attribute that it possesses. A tie results in no bonuses."

    The bonus is D3 as I understand.

    Are we losing momentum, or should I post turn updates in here? I've got some sort of nasty cold so I'm a bit more sluggish than I might otherwise be myself.

    Oh, Tyrant Damned absolutely yes, I got my email as I was falling asleep (GMT) and will have done my turn within a few hours.
