So far only one person is in my army, and that was me.

An Army of One :)?

he says he needs talented warriors like you
BWAHAHAHAHAHAA!!!

Sir Penguin
31-01-2003, 10:43:45
We need somebody to paint the glorious battlefield.

SP

Sir Penguin
31-01-2003, 10:44:57
Three soldiers! My income is tripled!

Feel free to become officers under my command. Officers get the fresh vegetables. :D Ummm... and the women and beer!

red?

Sir Penguin

Some brown, some green. Grey for the sky. Black and white for the trees' smiles.

Very weird. Signed up if its any help to you! (Probably not)

Thank you! Here is your light sabre.

SP

You now have an army of 8.

Drekkus
31-01-2003, 11:17:34
And what fine soldiers they are. :D

Sir Penguin
31-01-2003, 11:19:02
Keep this up, and in a day maybe two of you can have an actual weapon!

SP

Drekkus
31-01-2003, 11:24:56
So how does this work? Do you have to registrer or just clicking the link is enough?

Sir Penguin
31-01-2003, 11:28:37
Registering makes you one of my officers, and gives you an army of your own. Just clicking the link is enough to add a soldier to my army.

While you're at it, add a soldier to the armies of my faithful officers, Shinnying (http://www.kingsofchaos.com/page.php?id=187973), Beta1 (http://www.kingsofchaos.com/page.php?id=187800), and Drekkus (http://www.kingsofchaos.com/page.php?id=188004).

Is one person an army?

Sir Penguin
31-01-2003, 21:47:34
Welcome to your new officers, Lord of Dusk (http://www.kingsofchaos.com/page.php?id=188876) (:hmm: ), King_Ghidra (http://www.kingsofchaos.com/page.php?id=190010), and zmama (http://www.kingsofchaos.com/page.php?id=190240).

Your glorious army now has enough money for a sword. To battle (drills)!

It's slower than Sidgames

Actually, I was wonder why it took you so long to sign up. We don't have room for hesitation in this penguin's army, buddy.

SP

Sir Penguin
01-02-2003, 01:04:32
Go join up in the armies of Delphinia Ravensmoon (http://www.kingsofchaos.com/page.php?id=194018) (Lurker), LadyRachel (http://www.kingsofchaos.com/page.php?id=194166), and Scabrous Birdseed and his band of mangy genetic experiments (http://www.kingsofchaos.com/page.php?id=194537).

We have so many officers, we're going to have to get one of the soldiers to bring more beer (and Dr. Pepper for me, yum!).

Vincent
01-02-2003, 08:14:21
Beer sounds good to me

notyoueither
01-02-2003, 08:16:17
Ohhh. SP has a helmet. Surely the forces of fish shall prevail.

Vincent
01-02-2003, 08:17:12
Now that's what I call an army. I guy with a helmet!

01-02-2003, 08:18:38
I call it a guy with a helmet.

notyoueither
01-02-2003, 08:19:02
and 39 peasants...

Vincent
01-02-2003, 08:20:25
You should enlist. What else can you do except to die for a guy with a helmet who thinks he's a penguin?

notyoueither
01-02-2003, 08:22:25
I have enlisted. I think I am 3 or 4 of the peasants already.

However, I reserve my right to be a critic of the regime.

Vincent
01-02-2003, 08:25:16
Yeah! you should join my army!
The officers are going to get some beer!

We haven't even invaded Poland yet. How... cheap.

Sir Penguin
01-02-2003, 08:30:55
Every army needs a preacher, brother Vincent. Your enlistment brings the men and women to accept peacefully their inevitable annihilation at the hands of an inept commander (I hasten to add that their peaceful acceptance is the REASON they're going to be annihilated; fucking peasents).

SP

Vincent
01-02-2003, 08:31:31
Amen

Sir Penguin
01-02-2003, 08:31:43
I've joined your army, Vincent.

SP

Vincent

May they all die in dignity! Or in dirt. As long as they die, bastards

Hey! You don't have a helmet yet. What the hell are you on about?

Vincent

Helmet is for sissies. And you get a headache from it. I'm aiming for a gasmaske

wise choice

Sir Penguin
01-02-2003, 08:42:40
Reports are coming in from our first campaign. We lost only one soldier, and inflicted over 4000 casualties. Unfortunately, the loot was sparse. Now, if you will excuse me while I roll this large sack into my tent...

If they're fucking peasents, you should be getting reinforcements soon enough.

Sir Penguin
01-02-2003, 08:52:17
You just posted that so that my misspelling of "peasants" will be immortalised. Any fool knows it takes 10 years from conception to get a working soldier.

He's too weak for me. :(

SP

Vincent
02-02-2003, 20:01:45
As an officer, sir_penguin's forces will help defend you when you are attacked.Well?

Sir Penguin
02-02-2003, 20:05:49
I sent a few guys over to throw our maggoty bread at them.

SP

Vincent
02-02-2003, 20:08:27
Well that's OK then, I guess

Sir Penguin
02-02-2003, 20:12:24
I don't recall asking you your opinion on the matter, OFFICER.

Sir Penguin
02-02-2003, 20:27:46
Or drunk.

SP

Vincent
02-02-2003, 20:32:43
or both.

Sir Penguin
02-02-2003, 20:33:20
The first one is probably more likely.

How did a twit with 10 men get all that stuff.

Our fearless despot doesn't have all the stuff that guy does. What gives?

Sir Penguin
02-02-2003, 21:54:57
Your fearless despot is saving up for long shields to defend his soldiers against enemy attack.

SP

notyoueither
02-02-2003, 21:57:42
That other twat already has them. How do you get that stuff?

Sir Penguin
02-02-2003, 22:01:34
G(t) = 15s * t - A - S

Where G is gold, s is soldiers, t is time measured in half-hour increments, A is the cost of the arms one has already purchased, and S is the gold stolen by other armies.

SP

notyoueither
02-02-2003, 22:05:38
Why is he too weak for you(us)? Is there some rule of chivalry or something?

Sir Penguin
02-02-2003, 22:14:07
The code of ethics clearly states that you may only attack an enemy which has at least half the strength of your own army.

SP

Vincent
03-02-2003, 08:26:11
Shit. Some UN stuff, I guess

Drekkus
03-02-2003, 10:37:30
You should only be allowed to attack with a UN resolution.

The thing is, you can join everyone's army once a day, so if you want a big army, you've just got to convince people to visit your page, and those of all your officers, once every day.

MDA
03-02-2003, 18:15:37
Recruiting links should be sent ONLY to friends/acquaintances or posted on a personal website.

Some asswipes keep taking my cash. It's not like I do it to them (they're stronger than I). I can only attack people with 50 or more people. :(

Sir Penguin
03-02-2003, 23:56:41
For my reference and everybody else's, the list of officers has grown to include: RedArmyFred (http://www.kingsofchaos.com/page.php?id=232472) (one of those non-activating bastards), Someone's Son (http://www.kingsofchaos.com/page.php?id=232741), amatista (http://www.kingsofchaos.com/page.php?id=230472), and Terrabyte (http://www.kingsofchaos.com/page.php?id=220940) (my daddy). As the newest officer, RedFred gets to prepare the meals, fill in the old latrines and dig the new ones, and wash his hands in between. What a guy.

SP

RedFred

Finn Willi was pretty impressed that a grown-up was joining his army.

And I'm going to set up a page with your avatar at loudmedicine.net

Darkstar

So what's the full list of links now? Put them together for lazy people.

Sir Penguin
05-02-2003, 07:14:46
The great thing about where I am is that there are a lot of accounts which are just there to accumulate soldiers, and don't have any defenses. As a side effect, they also accumulate wealth. I saw a guy today with the same number of soldiers that I had, and no attack/defense bonuses, and over 100,000 gold. Unfortunately, I'd burnt all my attacks by then. :(

SP

Vincent
05-02-2003, 08:44:20
Yep. Seems there are a lot of players who didn't check their accounts. Easy targets. HARR HARR

You can just click on the links! That's fantastic.

If someone wants to be added to that page, send an email with your name, link and motto to vincent@loudmedicine.net

I'll add you ASAP.

Sir Penguin

Apparently my former commander got his account deleted because he got 5000 soldiers in 24 hours and the administrators were hasty. The great thing is that he got all his soldiers legally, and the even better thing is that now all the players on the forums are complaining about him because he's the top player. :lol: Why does the internet attract twats?

It's not so bad any more. By tomorrow I'll have a battering ram, which will put me back up around the level of my peers. In fact, I'd have a battering ram now if I could reach the server (barring a tragic defeat, of course).

The new interface isn't as nice, but it's a lot more informative. The new features (attack- and defense-oriented soldiers, mercenaries, spies) look interesting. I'm not clear on the purpose of mercenaries, though (not that I've done any research on the matter).

Spies? Never used them. Do you use up a soldier if you send one?

Sir Penguin
10-02-2003, 10:16:21
Only if they get caught and killed. There is no downside to having spies, except they cost money. I can't see them being really useful until you get up to the levels where there aren't any soldier-accretion moneypot accounts in attackable range.

SP

Funkodrom
10-02-2003, 10:19:02

No, you can't lose. If you can afford 2000/soldier for the attack/defend bonus, and however much it is for the spies (3500 each for me, at skill level 5). The attack/defend training makes each trained soldier 250% as effective as an untrained soldier in the relevant area, and removes their ability to participate in the other area. So I guess if you train all your troops, you get a 50% bonus to each. For me, it would cost almost 400,000 gold to train them all, and it's a continuous expense as you add more people to your army. The other major addition, mercenaries, seem useless to me, unless for some reason you're desperate for soldiers. I'm not going to spend 2000 gold to get a soldier which I could get in another 24 hours.

SP

Vincent
10-02-2003, 10:34:03

Funkodrom
10-02-2003, 10:35:17
Well... I get 500 gold every half hour. So I can get another soldier every 2 hours if I buy them.

Or.

I can train a soldier to be an attack or defend for 2000 but I can buy an attack soldier for 3500, so if you are buying mercenaries it only makes sense to buy pretrained ones for, effectively, 1500.

Sir Penguin
10-02-2003, 10:42:42
If one wants soldiers desperately, and has wads of cash to burn, mercenaries are great. However, I can either drop 3500 for a trained mercenary, or wait 24h to recruit another myself. I make around 3000 gold per half hour, so that's 140-150 thousand in 24 hours. So by waiting, not only do I get my soldier, but I've got 10 times more money out of the deal (not to mention the 48 attack turns, which could get me a few hundred thousand more).

SP

Vincent
10-02-2003, 10:48:26

Yesterday I save turns all day, ending up with 47 attacks. Theoretically, that's enough to get me the 300K necessary for a fortress, which I desperately need. So I went and burned 25 attacks on losses, 7 attacks got me 12K, and the other 15 got me 75K. Bastards. So I upgraded 50 of my soldiers to attack/defense.

Humans are the best for attacking against, because they have no military bonus, and they have lots of money. I wish I'd known that when I registered.

So I started out today with 100K gold and 47 attacks. after taking moderate amounts from people who don't know the game's back on, I had a bit more than 297K and 17 attacks; I need 300K for a fortress. I attacked a guy with loads of cash for 15 turns, and lost. My last two turns I spent on another rich guy (I made sure to check his army with spies first), and made just over 3200 gold. :D My new a/d bonus is 2560/3180. Harr harr harr.

I'd like to share a revelation that I've had, during my time here. It came to me when I tried to classify your species I realized that you're not actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment, but you humans do not. You move to an area, and you multiply, and multiply, until every natural resource is consumed. The only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet, you are a plague, and we are the cure.

Shining1
03-03-2003, 10:12:38
Viruses don't work like that though.

Actually, the more I think about that, the more total bollocks it sounds. Akin to "They can take our lives, but they'll never take our freedom!" (Zombie rallying call)

My best advice is to upgrade your defense as much as you can support without spies, and then save up a huge wad of money and burn it all on a whopping amount of spy skill points. Spies are extremely useful for picking your battles, and it's best to upgrade when the upgrading's cheap. I wish I had known that before my spy points cost 3000 each.

SP
