Recruiting members for NEW LOTR game (online)

Postby Nicrlaitheking » Thu May 29, 2014 4:10 am

Hello to those who might read this!


So I'm making a new free online game about Middle Earth :)

Many of you probably know the tabletop game "Axis & Allies" which is about WWII.
so i kinda like the concept and since i love the geography of Middle Earth i thought it could be quite cool to have a Lord of the Rings version of the game. (yes i know there already exist LOTR risk... but it's bad, compared to axis and allies, imo)

anyway boardgames are kinda oldschool and i found out you can play axis and allies online. So was thinking to make this game free and online as well.

Name of the game:
Middle Earth: Dawn of a New Age

What I'm seeking:
-Coders who can help
-UI/2d artists, people who can make all the visual parts

if you wanna join the team feel free to leave a message or pm me.

The game will have singleplayer & multiplayer (singleplayer will mostly be for new players and multiplayer for those who are skilled). I hope there will be an online chatroom while playing a multiplayer game, a tab for you and your allies and a general world-tab for chatting. That way people can plan how to win the game etc.

Basic gameplay:

- Each faction is controlled by a player (or AI if not enough players online)
- Each region has a "value" 0-9 points.
- the points are used for recruiting soldiers, building structures & naval forces
- you can only recruit men in "cities"
- there can only be 1 city (basically large cities & famous cities known from LOTR) in a region.
- Each faction needs to control a specific amount of cities to win
- Each faction has a main mission (like Mordor's main mission: destroy the faction; Gondor)
- infantry can move 1 region per turn (unless the information says something else in the 'units' category. see below sections)
- you get points for each turn. you can end your turn whenever you want (if you play online you will have a time-limit (could be adjusted to make the game even harder))
- Each faction has it's own startup men & heroes (see sections below for more)
- The Heroes your faction starts with has their own advantages, and cannot be revived or recruited.
-the skulls you can see on the map are 'dangerous areas' if you move men into the area you can risk to lose some (AI will roll a dice)

Units:

Land Units: Cost: Attack: Move:
-Peasants (snaga for orcs) 2, 1, 1
-Light Infantry 3, 2, 1
-Heavy Infantry 4, 3, 1
-Cavalry 4, 2, 2
-Heavy Cavalry 7, 4, 2
-Catapult, Balista (needed to captured regions with a city) 10, 4, 1
*Special units*
-Trolls (can be used to capture a region with a city) 17, 4, 2
-Oliphaunts 20, 5, 2
-Fellbeast (can only be used with a nazgul hero) 25, +1, +2
-Ents (Not recruitable) -, 4, 1
-Eagles (Not recruitable) -, 5, 3
-Rangers (only Good factions) 4, 2, 2
-Giant spiders (can only be recruited in Dol Guldur) 15, 3, 1
- Hero (different from person to person) *can not be bought

Naval Units:
-Battleship (can take 2 hits) 21, 3, 1
-Galley 15, 1, 1
-Transport (can carry 2 units) 15, 0, 1
Special ships:
- Corsair ship (can carry 2 units) 18, 3, 1 (can move 2 first round after recruitment)

Structures:

-Upgrade a 'town' to city (will enable recruitment) 100, 2 rounds to construct
-Barricades (max 1. can take a hit instead of a unit) 8, 1 round
-Rebuild a ruined city 75, 2 rounds
-Build a Harbour (will enable recruitment for naval forces) 30,

*note about 'attack' (damage). you roll a dice per unit. The 'attack' indicates from what number and below they hit. example:
Light Infantry = attack 2. if you get 1 or 2 you hit and your enemy can choose which unit to lose.
