Would you play this battle game?


4x Battle game with the following mission statement:

In general larp is getting really good at producing a range of emotions in it’s players and staff. Hardcore Nordic larp groups push emotional boundaries. Battle games however seek to build one particular emotion, and do that through combat.

Esprit du corps
“The blood of the covenant is thicker than the milk of birth.”

System Goals:

  1. Run a game which is enjoyable physically and mentally. 
  2. Explore what combining the 4x game concept and a larp battle game means. 
  3. Focus on the production of one emotion. Espirt du Corps.

The game is played on two layers, each layer informing the other. The strategic layer takes place on a map. In this case a hand drawn hex map. It plays out more like a board game. The Tactical layer takes in a series of well defined battles, the rules of which should be familiar to gamers. Capture the flag, fort battle, bridge battle, milk run, line battle.
