Halloween Research, Commerce, Espionage all-in-one.

The structure is research followed by industry followed by the results of the commerce and espionage rolls. All gains will be assigned after all rolls are done.

All espionage attempts automatically fail if at 20 or below and automatically succeeds at 90 or above.

Balance of Power at the time of this roll:

Bilgewater: 16. 16*4=64 research bonus from BoP. Favor is 39(34+5).

Freljord: 9. 9*4= 36 research bonus from BoP. Favor is 85(93-8).

Ionia: -12. -12*0.5= -6 research penalty from BoP. Favor is 69(70-1).

Shadow Isles: -14. -14*0.5= -7 research penalty from BoP. Favor is 35(41-6).

Bilgewater

Firstly, the champion vote. Overwhelming voted in was Renekton, who will now fight for Bilgewater. Nasus, as Renekton’s nemesis, will be available to pick for any faction if Bilgewater picks Renekton in that match, as the “Free” nemesis champion category.

Actual Research Gain: Base=20. 20*2=40. 40+64+262-10=356.

The Moonstone is now 35.6% done. Now in Beta Stage

Industry Progression:

Bilgewater: 50×2 = 100+0 = 100+254 = 354×2->% = 70.8%

Commerce Spending:

Bilgewater has elected to spend its 44 commerce on Research and hire mercenaries(Total Poll Votes: 63)

Research: 22*3=66. 66+356=422. The Moonstone is now 42.2% done.

Mercenaries: 22*2 (Bilgewater has a two for one deal). 44 Strength has been added to Bilgewater. Bilgewater has 13 strength added to its Nyrothian military standing which is now 18.

[Edit by CCT: Bilgewater gets a 50% kickback/discount, rather than hiring twice as many mercs. So it recruited 22 Strength of mercs. This adds 7 Strength to its forces on Nyroth, bringing its total there to 12: still a bit weak, but significantly stronger.]

Espionage Activities:

Bilgewater has elected to do counter espionage activities.(Total Poll Votes: 43)

They will roll against Freljord and Ionia’s attempts this time around. They will only roll the counter espionage if the faction succeeds on either roll.

Danger Roll Threshold: 5% base=5% total failure threshold.

Danger Roll: 83. Only dangers were random street performers with smoking addictions.

The Frejlord(Ruled by Queen Ashe)

Actual Research Gain: Base=50. 50*2=100. 100+36+340-50=426.

Frostgem mines is now 42.6% done.  Now in Beta Stage

Industry Progression:

Freljord: 60×2 = 120+38 = 158+292 = 450×2->% = 90%

Commerce Spending:

Freljord has elected to spend its 28 commerce it on industry and Research(Total Poll Votes: 25)

Industry: 14*5=70. The Freljord has finished Plantation Establishment. They now have a foothold on the island and are gain money and food. Exact details and a vote for the next industry project should be out sometime before Monday.

Research: 14*3=42. 426+42=468. Frostgem mines is now 46.8% done.

Espionage Activities:

The Freljord has elected to Mudrack secrets on Bilgewater.(Total Poll Votes) If they succeed, they will create 1d3 3d10 secrets. Their chances are 30% to succeed, 90% to be caught. If caught, they will lose 5 favor and roll on the sanctions table.

Bilgewater will have a 30% chance to expose the faction, and a 20% chance to prevent success in addition to Ionia’s roll due to counterespionage. These rolls supersede all other rolls.

Additionally, Bilgewater gets to make two counter-espionage rolls which it has a 55% chance to succeed: one to thwart the enemy mission, and one to expose the enemy agent. For each roll, if the defender’s margin of success is more than double the enemy’s margin of success, the enemy fails the roll. (Critical success and failure rules apply. If both sides score a crit, the side that rolled better wins; in case of a true tie, the defender wins.)

Freljord mission success roll(30%): 10. Critical Failure. Barbarians are not very adept at shaking down pirates. They just go into the sea.

Freljord evasion success roll(10%): 17. Failure. Barbarians are not very good being conspicuous.

Bilgewater does not need to roll counter espionage.

As a result of being caught, Sanctions roll with a base favor of 80:

Sanction roll: 87. Wrist-slap sanctions. The league officials were too busy laughing to give a harsh punishment.

Table Roll: 1. The result is below.

Bilgewater will have a 30% chance to expose the faction, and a 20% chance to prevent success in addition to Ionia’s roll due to counterespionage. These rolls supersede all other rolls.

Additionally, Bilgewater gets to make two counter-espionage rolls which it has a 55% chance to succeed: one to thwart the enemy mission, and one to expose the enemy agent. For each roll, if the defender’s margin of success is more than double the enemy’s margin of success, the enemy fails the roll. (Critical success and failure rules apply. If both sides score a crit, the side that rolled better wins; in case of a true tie, the defender wins.)

Ionian mission success roll: 55. Success. They have managed to steal some documents soaked with rum.

Ionian evasion success roll: 70. Success. Too much inebriation from Bilgewater.

Bilgewater Counter Mission Roll(20%): 10.  Failure Drunken pirates on cannons? It’s more likely than you think.

Bilgewater Counter Evasion Roll(55%): 9. Critical Failure. They left the key in the door so the ninjas got out. Bilgewater however has proof of their spy attempts.

As a result of being caught, Sanctions roll with a base favor of 60(70-10):

Sanction roll: 123. Meh. The league officials were still too busy laughing at Freljord.

Table Roll: 1. The result is below.

90+ Meh Lose 2 Commerce.

Danger Roll Threshold: 5% base=5% total failure threshold.

Danger Roll: 7. The massive Shadow Ninja rebellion on Hallow’s Eve was narrowly avoided

Shadow Isles

Actual Research Gain: Base=30. 30*2=60. 60-7+11+30=94

Danger Roll: 16. Trick or treaters were unstable as test subjects.

Final Active Factional Statuses:

  • Bilgewater: 52 Commerce. Favor 39.
  • Freljord: 28 Commerce. Favor 80.
  • Ionia: 37 Commerce. Favor 77.
  • Shadow Isles: 6 Commerce. Favor 35,

So that was fun. Freljord and Ionia both are the first to roll on the sanctions table. Neither were severely harmed by it, but the shame remains.

The Faction Standing Chart will be updated sometime later tonight. Comment below as always and I am sure you will have comments.

    hmmm if bilge will last pick renekton they can pretty much negate the free nemesis pick cant they? or how do the enemy know when they will pick renekton

    • 501stbigmike says:

      That’s true, we should have something added in where they need to announce at the start of champ select if they are picking Renekton.

      • CupcakeTrap says:

        Yeah, this is part of why I’ve resisted calls for conditional Champion picks. It’s a little awkward making a team declare beforehand if they’re taking Renekton or not. Then again, hey, Tertiary.

      • naggarok says:

        That cause more problems that it solves, seeing as how it’s forcing a team to give away a pick, force them into that pick regardless of the enemy team, is hard to remember for pickups, isn’t enforceable in pickups, and would just lead to awkward situations when a team doesn’t agree to it. Additionally, this opens up the potential to troll because 4/5 players could go “We aren’t picking Renekton” then the fifth picks it.

        Furthermore,
        A) the situation is only possible with Bilgewater on purple side which has an inherent disadvantage.
        B) Most players aren’t going to make that kind of effort so that their last pick is Renekton IF they want him.
        C) You talk about the strategy of picking in faction games, this basically removes all aspects of that.
        D) Nemesis system should primarily be a potential benefit to the opposing team not a detriment to the picking team which the above system does.

        So I’m going with it not being a good decision.

        • CupcakeTrap says:

          You’re right, it’s too complicated. I’ll revert it for now, but if people start being dicks and lastpicking Renekton all the time, we might have to revisit this.

          I think what it comes down to is: there are good aspects of conditional Champion picks, and there are problematic aspects as well. Until now, I’ve barred conditional picks because of those problematic aspects. But it’s time to give it a chance. My initial thought was to try to dampen those problematic aspects. Seeing how tangled that gets, however, I agree that to start with we need to just let it play out naturally and see how it goes.

  2. StormRevolver says:

    There is no sanctions roll under a 10 severity secret if i remember right…. and it would be nice if the rolls would be spelled out

    • StormRevolver says:

      and the high bop multiplier on the positive bonus seems more and more stronger since the bop is 0 sum

    • naggarok says:

      Stigma is not a secret. See below

      Stigma: How awful the international community considers this kind of action. Measured in terms of how much Favor is lost. A faction that gets caught conducting espionage operations will lose the specified amount of Favor, then make a Sanctions check.

  3. Rextreff says:

    There goes my plan of building a robot army with the engineers ;~;

    Darius, how could you.
