    <p>SHUGO</p>
    <p>about</p>
    <p>Shugo is a browser based game that requires no plug-ins and no downloads. Shugo is a strategy game set in feudal Japan during the Sengoku Jidai or Warring States period. The game was made in march 2008 and is developed by an amateur browser based game maker, who currently resides in Groningen in the Netherlands. The site itself is hosted on a server located in Zwolle. The name of the game is derived from the japanese word Shugo, which roughly translates as governor.</p>
    <p>gameplay</p>
    <p>Shugo is an unique historical strategy game, that is a browser based version and sort of a mixture of games like Shogun Total War, Nobunaga's Ambition, or Dynasty Warriors.</p>
    <p>A player takes up the role of a clan's Daimyo. The goal of the game is try to become the new Shogun of Japan. A typical game round starts in the year 1477 and ends in the year 1603, or earlier when a player manages to become the new Shogun, with a gameyear being equal to a real day. An average round usually lasts about a month. The required activity to play Shugo is minimal and it is recommended that players login once and sometimes twice a day in a round to have a decent chance of winning.</p>
    <p>You can do a lot in Shugo and this is what makes the strategy so deep and complicated. You can pick one of hundreds of possible clans, each clan with its own starting location and you can pick one of various personalities when you register, with each personality having its own specific advantage or bonus. Clans or players can do battle and attack other clans, invade other provinces, you can send ninja's to spy on other players, incite rebellions, set fire to town buildings and construct buildings such as castles, markets and temples of your own. You can also research advances that give your clan various military or economic bonuses.</p>
    <p>You get a limited numbers of attack turns and espionage turns each day, but some personalities get more espionage turns than other personalities and the attack turns can be increased by constructing certain buildings or upgrades. The turn change or refresh is at midnight local time. There are also random events in the game, such as bountiful harvests and disasters like earthquakes and typhoons.</p>
    <p>Koku is the currency in the game and koku is needed to recruit soldiers and construct buildings. Other resources are: various trade goods like silks and tea, weapons like katana and bows and several kinds of villagers like ashigaru and samurai.</p>
    <p>Diplomacy is also an important aspect in Shugo. Players often make alliances or sign pacts or try to have other clans as their vassals whenever they can.</p>
    <p>Hardly any round is the same and the game is continually being developed. The game map has changed a lot over the years and so has construction, espionage and warfare. New ideas and concepts are introduced by the game maker in almost every new round, with some of these ideas being suggested by both new and veterans players alike.</p>
    <p>community</p>
    <p>The community of Shugo is small and there are not many players who register each round, but most players are friendly, amusing and very helpful to newbies. The game has a steep learncurve, but there is walkthrough and an FAQ besides the guide. The guide is quite large and the first days of playing Shugo can sometimes be a bit overwhelming. Most players are from countries like the Netherlands, the United States, Canada and Great Britain and sometimes from countries such as Croatia, Malaysia and Indonesia. Not all the players are fluent in English, but many idle in the irc channel, besides posting in the in-game forum.</p>
