When To Test Leadership

Ok, so here's some thinking on when, under the new "I go, you shoot" system, we should test leadership to clear suppression.

Simplifying Things Some More...

Sorry for the long break in posting, but I've been dealing with some serious health issues that demanded my full attention. I'm having a 'good day' right now though, so I've actually been able to sit down and think about the project in detail. Instead of in little snippets here and there.

As part of that, I've been having a desire to simplify the game some more. Which mostly boils down to simplifying close-combat and shooting. While keeping a bit of the feel that we had in the last game sequence test. Where we experimented with a set of phases that were similar to those in the old Squad Leader game.

Concept: Leadership Failure Levels

Still from Paths of Glory- Kubrick 1957
Eriochrome here today to talk about some ideas for the morale/leadership system. Unit morale is a key factor in war and while interspecies wars can be genocidal that does not mean everyone will fight every engagement to the death.  Units under fire might start keeping their heads down more than the general on high would like or they might even run away to fight another day.  We would like a unified leadership system which can cover this whole range without being too complicated or constricting.
