Hello guys I'm Huw,

I'm the developer of an indie game called Warsim: The Realm of Aslona and I'm just making a post to share the games development on this forum, I'll be updating the post with changelogs and relevant developments and updates, the games been in development for over three years already and there's plenty more to come, feel free to comment any suggestions or questions you have and I'll be happy to answer them!



FEATURES

In Warsim: The Realm of Aslona you take the reigns of the kingdom of Aslona in a world filled with rebels, bandits, goblins, and five procedurally generated kingdoms pooling from over 300'000 possible fantasy races that each vary massively. Unlike most kingdom management games Warsim allows you to indulge in being a ruler, maybe you blow the kingdoms coffers on feasts, entertainment, and gambling!

Warsim's world features a mix of pre-made content and procedurally generated content producing a rich gameworld with more possibilities than you might expect, Check out the feature list below for more idea of what to expect and if you're on the fence about the game my advice would be to read the steam reviews as I feel nothing else demonstrates the fun that can be had better!

Features
  • Scores of places to explore including, a giant blackmarket filled with mystery and wonder, hidden cities (that's right multiple of them), Two schools where you can take lessons, one in music and one in history, a procedurally generated newspaper, and tons more, there has been an excessive amount of time spent fleshing out the world, exploration is heavily rewarded.
  • An arena which you can takeover and grow, or watch and bet on, holding giant tournaments and rooting for champions as they climb the ranks and get remembered for eternity.
  • A unique facial procedural generation system that can produce well over 100 quadrillion different faces for a variety of different races from Humans and orcs, to kobolds and treemen.
  • Deal with the throne room, a complex place with thousands of possible encounters and visitors, how will you manage the realm and treat your people?
  • Listen to some procedurally generated music, be it the drum solo of a nervous travelling goblin bard, or the proud music prowess of a well trained vampire showing off with his vampyric lute (or find the music guild and try your own hand at playing these instruments)
  • Tons of random events, no game will be the same, with the kingdoms, rulers and events always being different and hard to predict.
  • Procedurally generated kingdoms, bandit gangs and mercenary groups, never get the same group twice, be they Seafaring Goblins, Fire Orcs, Eyeless Elves or the Famed Half-Turtles of the Western Turtledom, all these races possible and over three hundred thousand more!
  • Countless mini-games played in taverns, your throne room, or around in the world to keep you entertained.
  • And so much more...

- The main Warsim community is reddit with over 1000 subscribers - www.reddit.com/r/warsimrpg
- Get the game on steam for $4.99 - https://store.steampowered.com/app/659540/Warsim_The_Realm_of_Aslona/?beta=0
- or Itch.io https://huw2k8.itch.io/warsim

The game has a 96% positive rating on steam from over 100 reviews and is currently ranked on steam250.com's list of indie hidden gems, the game was heavily inspired by games like Dwarf fortress, mount and blade, Elder scrolls oblivion, and king of dragon pass which are all pretty much my favourite games ever.

SCREENSHOTS

Here's a bunch of screenshots that make some effort showing the diversity of the game and some of the different things you can see and get up to!

Hey guys, another smaller update this time, some changes to Fort Northwatch and the Thickblood tavern in the Near north, making these areas better and more functional.

**MAIN STUFF**

When exploring a lot of those encounters with peasants looking for gold were asking for way more money that they should have been so they have been nerfed, it's still random but you're less likely to get such high self worth peasants. Also I had a race of gold orcs spawn in a world and was sad to see their skin wasn't gold, so now it is! And finally, as part of a continued effort to improve the sound of warsim, there is a new ambient track for the main menu.

* Dropped the min and max wage ask for peasants found in world exploration
* Added gold races now have yellow skin
* Added new main menu theme music to warsim

**THE THICKBLOODS**

The thickblood tavern is a location that can be, bought or visited, but for some reason you can't just attack it, well now you can, you can attack it, but there's a reason the place is still standing, it's popular with many northern folk and they are willing to die for it, be careful now.

* Added ability to attack thickblood tavern
* Added chance if fort northwatch has over 100 men they join defence of thickblood
* Added random bands of wildermen loyal to thickbloods that will join defence of thickblood
* Added random groups of northerners loyal to thickbloods that will join defence of thickblood
* Added random groups of northern mercenaries loyal to thickbloods that will join the defence of thickblood
* Added new enemy 'Thickblood wilderman'
* Added new enemy 'Wilderman Warrior'
* Added new enemy 'Wilderman'
* Added new enemy 'Retired northern mercenary'
* Added new enemy 'Northern mercenary'
* Added new enemy 'Northern sellsword'
* Added new enemy 'Northern Sellspear'
* Added new enemy 'Northman'
* Added new enemy 'Northwatch bandit'
* Added new enemy 'Northwatch bandit sharpshooter'
* Added new enemy 'Northwatch captain'
* Added new enemy 'Thickblood Bandit mercenary'
* Added new enemy 'Thickblood bandit sellsword'
* Added new enemy 'Thickblood bandit sellspear'
* Added new enemy 'Thickblood Bandit warrior for hire'
* Added new enemy 'Thickblood tavernguard'
* Added new enemy 'Thickblood Clan-claimer'
* Added personal small army to thickblood tavern
* Added thickblood recruit 3 new thickbloods per year (max 120)

**FORT NORTHWATCH**

Fort Northwatch was rather bland, seeing what could happen with forts with the updates of Gorthmek in the past I decided to give this place a spruce up, now there are a few more things you can do here!

* Fixed northwatch army non-existant and instantly refils every attack
* Added northwatch recruit 5 bandits per year (max 1200)
* Added ability to speak to fort northwatch ruler
* Added ability to speak to fort northwatch local bandits (10 unique dialogues)
* Added ability to hire local bandits from northwatch
* Added ability to learn about northwatch history
* Added ability to watch a brawl in northwatch
* Added new dynamic northwatch buy price depending on public opinion
* Added aftermath for buying northwatch (all of northwatch's bandit troops will disperse among relevant locations and factions)

**VYLCOUNT**

It's been long overdue, Vylcount has been an active member of the community for quite some time and has been contributing with more ideas than I can count, so I've decided to give him a special place in the living district of Goblinwood in the Wildwoods.

* Added Vylcounts manor to Goblinwood
* Added 5 new dialogues to slums (including reference to old bug) (credit u/Vylcount)

**BUGFIXES**

* Fixed weird alliance response tagged as trade route response
* Fixed Eswin century fest dialogue out of line
* Fixed wild skalds band in Dragons kneecap using wrong backdrop
* Fixed wild skalds band in Dragons kneecap dialogue out of line

This update took a little longer than I wanted it to, but here it is! This update boasts finally pushing the race generator to well beyond 300k random races that are possible to be spawned in Warsim! 325'142 total. This update also contains lots of changes to the sounds systems within the game.

https://i.imgur.com/sPhk4jT.png

**CREATURE-LINGS**

This is what pushed the races over the edge, now every single animal type can also be a custom race, itself with 'lings' at the end, you can find Doglings and Catlings, Beetlelings and Giraffelings.

* Added 192 new animal race types (Doglings, Piglings, Maggotlings, Crowlings... etc)

**RACE SKIN COLOUR UPDATE**

This update sees race skin colour more affected by certain race suffixes, so Bone Orcs will now have white skin instead of green, Arctic Gnomes will be blue, Magma Goblins red and so on, this adds a bit more of a difference between races giving more of a change of an immersive world with strange creatures who occupy it.

* Added Skeleton races now have white skin
* Added Infernal races now have red skin

**WEIRD STUFF**

I thought it would be hilarious if there were abominations that made fart sounds instead, so now that's a thing, you can find them in ceremonies as entertainment or in the comedic section of your upgraded throne rooms entertainment system, the second weird addition is probably one of my favourite things ever so far, A battle of two gnomes... I'll just leave it at that.

* Added farting abomination to throne room ceremony

Ok so as usual this update took a little longer than I wanted, but I needed to make sure all locations were covered with new destruction sounds, and tons of other stuff, let me know what you think!

**NEW JESTER FEATURES**

It's a dumb idea that came to my head, but as anyone who's been playing warsim for a while knows, those dumb ideas often end up in the game, well now any jester who's introductory speech to you starts with the words 'Honk Honk' or 'Wonk Wonk' will say that before every joke or riddle! Also you can find nervous jesters who will often mess up trying to tell you a joke or riddle!

* Added Joke telling jesters now show their face instead of a horse image
* Added possibility of nervous stuttering jesters
* Added possibility of jesters that say Honk Honk a lot
* Added possibility of jesters that say Wonk Wonk a lot
* Added dwarf joke (level 1 jesters) (credit Laughing Gravy)

**BLACKMARKET TROOP CHANGES**

The Blackmarket has been buffed again, the place is a highly valuable location with tons of population but often a weak and easily beaten army, no more!

* Added 1000 starting troops to blackmarket
* Made blackmarket bandit troop wages half a gold coin per turn (instead of a single coin) to allow for more men to be on payroll without bankrupting the market
* Increased blackmarket troop limit for all leaders (6000 for bandit kings, 4500 for bandit warlords, 3800 for all others)

**NEW FACES**

Lots of new faces, demons by request and halflings due to their use by our new race!

* Added 2'869'278'572'160 (2.8 trillion) Demon faces (credit pinback)
* Added 2'525'644'800 Halfling faces (was 740 million, now 3.2 billion)

**NEW RACE**

A new race, Homunculi are tiny little troublemakers!

* Added new race 'Homunculi' to the game (small humanoids, smaller than halflings) using halfling faces, protofolk names and having terribly low population and strength stats

**RACE CHANGES**

Tried to go through the list of race prefixes to see which ones should logically change skin colour, so now races will look more and more unique, also three new prefixes! so you can get Ransacking Dwarves, Snow Elves and Desert Demons!

* Added 'Ransacking' race prefix (allows race to raid and gives +3 battlescore)
* Added 'Snow' race prefix (Gives White Skin, +6 battlescore)
* Added 'Desert' race prefix (-5 population level +7 battlescore)
* Added Ghostly races now have white skin
* Added Golden races now have yellow skin
* Added Water races now have blue skin
* Added Frost races now have blue skin
* Added Fungus races now have dark green skin
* Added Volcanic races now have dark red skin
* Added Lightning races now have yellow skin
* Added Bronze races now have brown skin
* Added Arcane races now have purple skin
* Added Flame races now have red skin
* Added Fire races now have red skin
* Added Mini races get smaller faces

**VYLCOUNTS HIREABLE BRAWLER SYSTEM**

A great suggestion from Vylcount, now certain winning brawlers can be hired as a new champion!

* Added dynamic brawl hire system (possible hire for free, or random gold figure) (credit u/Vylcount)
* Added slum pit fighters hireable (credit u/Vylcount)
* Added hired brawler entertainment fighters hireable (credit u/Vylcount)
* Added dragons kneecap brawl fighters hireable (credit u/Vylcount)
* Added thickblood tavern brawl fighters hireable (credit u/Vylcount)

**NEW SOUNDS**

So as with the recent updates, there's been a huge push on getting more sound effects in the game. No longer will Warsim be a relatively soundless game save for the background theme! No! I've been downloading Copyrightless sounds from Freesounds.org and mashing them up. If you have any ideas for places that could use sounds let me know!

* Added new sound effect when taking orb from northern hall
* Added new sound effect when destroying chaos orb (in artifact hall)
* Added new sound effect for Oooh Snakes
* Added new sound effect for destroying Oooh Snake sanctuary (pretty funny)
* Added new sound effect for opening plague box

Just doing my weekly devlog crawl and wanted to say this look really cool! I'll definitely pick it up on Steam! Reminds me of something like Reigns by way of King of Dragon Pass.

Hey guys, just want to make sure no one's in the dark, it's been just shy of two weeks since the last update and the reason for this has been the scope of the new update, the throne room is getting a few added layers of complexity, but the throne room has over 1000 different encounters and sub encounters, and almost all of them are being modified. In fact, every single main encounter will be reworked so it's been a hefty task though it will be worth it in the end!

Currently I have finished 25/130 primary encounters, so a fifth of the way, though many of the systems that have been written for the first 25 will be reused by the others so as development progresses it will get easier.

Now I can't reveal some of the new additions because they are secret for now! but some things that have been done so far:

* When goblins talk gibberish during throne room encounters, if your diplomat is a goblin/speaks goblin, you can actually ask what the goblin is saying, which reveals extra information
* Communicating with the demon overlord as a demon servant has been modified with some spooky additions
* Trials by combat can now happen if arrested people request them
* Some arrested people will fight
* Ability to hire new jester even if you already have one (you can also compare their stats)
* Savage kingdoms will not have a phrase but instead symbols or weird savage words

Anyway, that's some of what can be expected in the update, but by the time its finished there will be much more! Smiley

Thanks for sticking around!

So this update took a lot longer than I thought it would, but it's part of a move forward with putting in important features into the game, there's still sooo much work to do, but the throne room is a lot more dynamic now, this update is big, so with it there may be a few bugs tucked away in some of these new features, find any and let me know!

Hey guys, so this update is a little soon (first time I've ever said that) but the time between updates prior to 0742 was quite long so I figured before I head away next week I'll try and get a bunch more work done and pump out some smaller updates, the main focus here was to do far more tests on the new throne room, remove any bugs and tweak anything I didn't like as well as to add new sounds and content where I could.

**THRONE ROOM TWEAKS**

Mostly small stuff, but my favourite is now if you get a sudden death player in your throne room you can rob him just like you can rob coin flippers! rip sudden death players coinpurses.

* Added new screen to advice giver paid
* Made public opinion loss for demon sacrifice encounter more common (now 50/50)
* Added coin bag screen for knight giving 100 gold coins
* Removed pointless exit option from sudden death encounter
* Added new recognition of previous play with options and text in sudden death throne encounter
* Added ability to rob sudden death players in throne room encounters
* Replaced bard 'begins to play for you text' with 'prepares to play for you' to avoid confusion

**NEW SOUNDS**

I've been continuing the drive of adding more sounds to warsim, these are mostly inconsequential but I think they do make the game feel more alive and quite a few of these are funny sounds, the goblin joiner one is my favourite but it's a secret! Shocked

* Added new ominous sound effect when receiving orb of chaos in throne room encounters
* Added new laughter sound effect that can occur anytime someone laughs in throne room
* Added new death sound effect (man says uh oh before he is killed)
* Added new variant to woohoo sound effect (now either of them can play when called)
* Added new special sound effect to goblin joiner in goblin wants coin encounter
* Added new sound effect for bowstring being pulled back (in archery game)
* Added new laughing child sound effect (now two different ones used at random)
* Added new sound effect 'trumpet solo'

So another quick burst update, the main drive of this update was to continue developing the reaction system and testing the throne room, but it spiralled into a bit of spring cleaning my old warsim to-do list, I cleared it down from 1200 things to 1000 by a mix of (adding stuff from the list, merging ideas that were similar, removing things that are now in the game etc) As a result there are some interesting new things as well as some ideas that were suggested a while ago but are now finally in.

**NEW MAJOR FEATURES**

The major new features here are that now, any races that are Masked, ie Masked Dwarves, Masked Goblins, Masked Demons, will not have visible faces but instead use masks from a pool of 72 million procedurally generated ones.

They look like this

Also the arena (if unowned by you) can still be upgraded and grow over time depending on who owns it and how big it is ([see here](https://i.imgur.com/eI7LWto.png)), and there is a new special encounter where mercenary companies will visit you and offer a varied discount!

* Added new system for masked races (now instead of their default faces, they get a mask from one of 72.6 million possible masks)
* Added dynamic system for the arena to be upgraded when not owned by you
* Added new encounter 'Mercenary company visit' (4 different kinds of visit)
* Added ability for mistreatment of merc company leader to get you banned from hiring them forever
* Added certain crimes result in higher relation change when fugutive of other kingdom is accepted/killed/arrested etc (ie killing the rulers pet, treason etc) (credit Defender)
* Added ability to skip some or all guest introductions in celebration ceremony (with chance of relation drop)
   
**NEW RACE TYPES**

With these four suffixes there are now 5872 new races that can be found in your world, [the three headed idea](https://i.imgur.com/s7x3tfY.png) was on my to do list from a suggestion by Bookrage from Audiogames.net, the recently updated system for two-headed races made it surprisingly easy to make a three-headed face work properly. After getting the three-headed system in I tested to see if it worked with masks and to my surprise it did, so now there are Two-headed and [Three-headed races that wear masks](https://i.imgur.com/UQUzzQc.png), also Stout folk.

* Added new race suffix 'Three-Headed' (half population, three heads graphic, +50 battlescore) (credit Bookrage)
* Added new race suffix 'Stout' (much lower population, slightly stronger)
* Added new race suffix 'Three-Headed Masked' (half population, three heads graphic, Wears masks, +52 battlescore)
* Added new race suffix 'Two-Headed Masked' (two heads graphic, Wears masks, +12 battlescore)

**THRONE ROOM TWEAKS**

A couple of tweaks to things in the throne room!

* Added some no gold reactions significantly or slightly increase the odds of public opinion change
* Slightly increased the odds of public opinion loss for having no gold when agreeing to pay
* Merged knight questing reaction system

**SMALLER FEATURES**

Some smaller but still noteworthy features, a hilarious suggestion from /u/chronoligcal, when in the scorpion fighting pit now there's a small chance the 'scorpion' that comes out is actually a goblin in disguise. Now the goblinstone in Wildwood can be captured and colonised by savages (only if there are enough savages elsewhere). Free slaves is now do-able from the laws screen too and the whole free slaves process has had a little facelift, and you can generate masks in the extras menu because why not!

* Added chance that scorpion in scorp fighting pit is actually a goblin holding sharp claws (questionable scorpion) (credit u/Chronoligcal)
* Made goblinstone in wildwood colonisable by savages (rare)
* Added seperate introduction text to celebration from throne room (so the single use festival you pay for from entertainment is a little different from the one every x years you declared)
* Reworked screens for freeing slaves and slave soldiers (+new graphic)
* Added ability to free slaves in social laws screen too (credit 71)
* Added random mask generator to extras menu

**NEW SOUNDS**

Not a huge sound increase but a few little ones, I've got a big folder full of new sounds I plan to add to the game when I can, just trying to find the right places for them.

* Added new Ahem sound effect (now when used the game picks one at random)
* Added new Yeah sound effect
* Added new chain break sound effect to freeing slaves

**NEW REACTIONS**

As with the last update a good focus on expanding the reactions system, I want to ensure it really does feel fresh and different and that you couldn't predict what would happen, any suggestions for reactions in the throne room are always welcome!

* Added 'I shall find glory in your name' knight reaction to questing
* Added 'Sword be guided' knight reaction to questing
* Added 'sweet throne' no gold reaction
* Added 'sorry sigh' no gold reaction
* Added dynamic sigh no gold reaction
* Added 'angry at himself' no gold reaction
* Added 'Sell the story to the paper' no gold reaction
* Added 'unexpected' no gold reaction
* Added 'awkward' no gold reaction
* Added 'YEAH' Deep voice shout reaction to thank you
* Added 'Nervous humble man' reaction to thank you
* Added 'Exaggerated power' reaction to thank you
* Added 'Feinting man' reaction to thank you

**AARDWOLVES**

Aardwolves are in the game now, a small foxlike creature from africa, Aard being afrikaans for earth, so really they are earthwolves!

* Added New Race 'Aardwolf Folk'
* Added New Race 'Aardwolfmen'
* Added New Race 'Were-Aardwolfs'
* Added New Race 'Evolved Aardwolfs'
* Added New Race 'Half-Aardwolfs'
* Added New Race 'Shapeshifting Aardwolfs'
* Added New Race 'Aardwolflings'
* Added new kingdom type 'Aardwolfdom'
* Added new creature 'Aardwolf'

**BUGFIXES**

Not too many bugs this time around but I imagine there are still tons unfound!

* Fixed missing 'an' in intro for old ruined village in wildwood
* Fixed mercenary groups 4 and 5 not being accessible if the first merc groups land was taken
* Fixed celebration text grammar
* Fixed celebration commedian text colour bug
* Fixed jester introduction line break bug
* Fixed typo in sudden death encounter 'for instead of force'
* Fixed sudden death robbery reaction not giving correct name to the man
* Fixed one of the 6 laughing sound effects not working

**EVERYTHING ELSE**

* Made demonic dialogue text match exactly what the overlord voice actually says
* Reworded killing a guard independent refugee encounter text
* Increased cost of Demon Shield by 100k (credit Defender)

And that's it, let me know what you thought guys!
