Split the difference. Re-roll, but take the average of both rolls. That way the first roll still means something, but it is highly unlikely to be quite so one-sided.
A small nitpick, it would be Teikoku. The "tei" there means an emperor/imperial and "koku" means a country, so together they make an empire.Anti-western sentiment had been rising in Dai Nippon Tekkoku since late ‘teens and there were growing calls for the for the country to move forward with that grand project.
I think that both sides getting 1 would have been an easier story to tell than the one where both of them got 20. In the former case, you could have a conflict which becomes a series of mistakes and errors by both sides and ends both of them being worse off than when the war started.ind of silly question but how would the first Americo-Draka war turned out if both sides had rolled 1's? Or 20's?
i am so hyped omfg
Now I just have to figure out how to write this war so as not to disappoint expectations.Hype!!
And urrrgh, because the watch function still doesn't work and didn't alert.
Yeah, that seems like it would make the most sense.This is more or less what I expected. I did not expect the dice to be the fumble = total annexation, but thaz the dice would result in the winning roll, well, winning.
Obviously the results of a clear and subsantial victory varies between sides, so I eagerly await to see what that entails. Althougg I do imagine a bloody grueling struggle will have a harsh peace due to the cost to the victor.
Thank you, I'm glad you like it.Whichever way this goes, I’m sure it’s going to be exciting as heck. I really like this format, with the illustrations and the omniscient narrator. It’s like the very best sort of history book, except there’s the added bonus of not knowing how things will turn out.
Done!Just an aside, but I've been rereading from the beginning (just so I have everything straight as we get going) and I think you should add "societism" as a tag, if only to screw around with new readers trying to find out about LTTW.
It's the only way to make the dice mesh with the story and have the dice keep working as a mechanic. I'll try not to disappoint!I was actually going to suggest that you take some creative license when interpreting the result of dice roll but that seems to be the direction you are taking. I am very interested to see where this goes.
Good catch, fixed.A small nitpick, it would be Teikoku. The "tei" there means an emperor/imperial and "koku" means a country, so together they make an empire.
Well it depends on Princely State, but it's pretty popular among Honorary Whites in Drakia and in Rhomania it's widely read but less influential than her more straight philosophy works.I wonder how popular Naldersson's book is in Rhomania and the Drakian Princely States, or if these states have somehow made their own version of this book to push their own agendas.
As @Doesntmatter said, the Irish are classed as eugenically inferior servitors, although the Scots Irish are considered Britons and there's room for the occasional eugenically superior Irish individuals (aka the Irish Protestants).What do British Societists think of Irish Drakians and vice versa?
Kind of silly question but how would the first Americo-Draka war turned out if both sides had rolled 1's? Or 20's?
Awww. It's super nice to hear that this is your favorite.I came back to a new strange background and more of my favorite TL.
I like that aesthetic, but I'm a little concerned about the practicality of some of those uniforms.How's this for the US army?
The majority of Sofia’s 300,000 inhabitants were killed, and the city became a contaminated zone that would be unlivable for decades.
