    Welcome to the new version of Ogre Wars:). We had to finally abandon the previous version because of an abandoned plugin on Vbulletin. GameOgre now uses Xenforo and we have found a way to play the game as a community again. The plan is to learn from the strengths and weaknesses of the old game to build a better one now. Considered calling this game Ogre Wars 2, but the old one does not exist anymore due to the forum move.

    Dice and forum threads will be used this time. We will also start with just two teams/nations and go from there. Ironheads and Stompers are the two nations that will start.

    Rules and Gameplay

    1. Go to the team's thread that you want to join and post that you are joining.
    2. You will then be a member of that nation and can begin.
    3. You can post only in your team's thread to play once a day.
    4. When posting for the day, say what percentage you want the number in gold and what number in troops. For example, you say that you want a 50/50 split and then roll a hundred. You will then get 50 in gold and 50 in troops.
    5. A battle thread will be made where you can challenge opposing Ogres:).
    6. Each combatant will roll the dice for the battle.
    7. Troops will be the primary factory at first.
    8. Gold will buy more troops and Nation items that will help all the players in that nation.
    9. Anybody who rolls 100 gives that much gold to each teammate:).
    10. If three or more team members all roll above 90, each of those players get 200 points each. Will call it the Ogre Triple Slam:).
    11. Combat will start when offense is bought in the Armory.
    12. Nobody can have more than three rolls per day.

    Nations

    This thread will be used for tracking and updates:).

    The threads for the two nations are now set up and waiting for people to join. The Ogre Wars dice is also set up:).

    So far we have four Ironheads and two Stompers. However, one of the Stompers had the best roll by far so the Stompers have the lead in the first day of the game.

    Day two saw much better rolls from the Ironheads minus myself:).

    General Note on Defaults:

    1. If you don't give a split, it will default to 50/50.
    2. I normally round up on gold when the split is 50/50 and the roll is an odd number.

    The Ironheads now have twice as many players as the Stompers. If the gap stays like this in players, may have to give the Stompers a bonus.

    Ok, today the player gap had no effect because both the Stompers and Ironheads had only three rolls each today. Branko and Septera both have the highest rolls for their nations so far.

    The Stompers may have less total players, but, if each continue to roll everyday, it is still too close to call. In fact, more Stompers rolled in the past two days than Ironheads did.

    Considering a few things going forward:

    1. May allow members on the same nation to help each other with gold and troops. Thus, newbies who start later can be brought up fast to help the nation.
    2. Looking for images for each nation like banners etc.
    3. Considering a medal or title to describe which nation each player is on.

    This continues to be even despite the mismatch in players who joined the Ironheads.

    That said, the ones who continue to roll the most will be rewarded and will count as core members of their nations. Right now, we are at about 3 core members each.

    The Stompers are on the board first with purchases as they continue the team concept by buying an Ogre Gold Machine:).

    While the Stompers rebuild their gold with their gold machine, the Ironheads are getting closer to making their first buy.

    Ok, both teams are continuing to build:).

    The fighting will actually start when the catapult and defenses are bought because it will be nation versus nation fighting at first. Basically each nation is trying to invade other nation while defending their own. Once a nation's defense is breached, it is up to the troops inside to hold off any invasions from doing further damage.

    Septera has reached over 1000 gold and is the first Ironhead to do so:).

    In fact, the Ironheads may have enough to go straight to offense or defense.
