So again, I'm still cutting away at the combat update, but a little bit of bugfixing and the odd new feature here and there has led once again to an update. Here's my latest video covering what's been added and changed.





**RISE OF THE GILLGHOUL**

What went from a small doodle of a weird head to a race with 43 billion faces, welcome to the Gillghoul. These are the living corpses of bodies lost at sea!

* Added new race 'Gillghouls' to the game
* Added 43'823'445'120 Gillghoul faces (43.8 billion)
* Added Gillghoul face generator in extra screen
* Added Gillghoul concept.txt to extra folder in games files
* Added 59,294 possible new races of Gilghoul type (Hell Gillghouls, Two-Headed Gillghouls, Combat Gillghouls, etc)

Here are some gillghouls in action

**RACE GENERATOR EXPANSION**

This is a single new prefix added to the race system, after a little test I thought it would be interesting to see what the different races would look like with no mouth, this led to the mouthless prefix however the code itself was already in the game it just wasn't being used by the race generator. Now you can find all kinds of mouthless creatures. This doesn't work on races with irregular face lengths like goblins but almost all other races it does. As a result of this and gillghouls additions the total possible races available in Warsim have gone from 75,066,204 to 75,470,122, not bad!

* Added new race prefix 'Mouthless' (-1 civ level, -5 battlescore, Faces have no mouth)
* Added 344,624 possible new mouthless races

Here's a look at some of the mouthless faces

**UPGRADE SCREEN REWORKED**

It was brought to my attention that upgrade screens didn't always tell you if you didn't have enough gold to buy the upgrade, this is very user unfriendly. I have decided to add screens for every upgrade and for not being able to afford every upgrade, it was a lot of work but now the upgrade screens are much more informative and some are unique.

* Added new screens for all kingdom upgrades you can't afford explaining the cost and showing your own gold  (credit u/Gamerzguy)
* Added new screens for all kingdom upgrades when bought (credit u/Gamerzguy)
* Added special screens for recruitment signs and militia recruitment signs (credit u/Gamerzguy)
* Added special screen for prison whips and steel whips with sfx (credit u/Gamerzguy)
* Added special screen for goblin slaver bodyguards (credit u/Gamerzguy)
* Added special screen for pitchfork and scythe harvest upgrades (credit u/Gamerzguy)
* Added special screen for pickaxe upgrade (credit u/Gamerzguy)
* Added special screen for market favour with sfx (credit u/Gamerzguy)
* Added special screen for hiring arena champion guards (credit u/Gamerzguy)
* Added special screen for constructing beast cages in arena (credit u/Gamerzguy)
* Added special screen for building spike pit in arena (credit u/Gamerzguy)

**NEW SOUND EFFECTS**

Thanks again to the https://cafofomusic.itch.io/human-vocal-sounds sound pack I purchased, added another heap of new sounds to the game that fit in very well.

* Added fart sound (from Cafofo's pack)
* Added new sound effect Aroused Hmm (from Cafofo's pack)
* Added new sound effect Big Sigh (from Cafofo's pack)
* Added new dynamic grr sound (6 different sounds) (from Cafofo's pack)

**THRONE ROOM REACTIONS EXPANDED**

Another mountain of throne room reactions, now the throne room visitors will have even more different possible reactions to the things you do and say. Also 5 reactions I'd previously coded were not actually able to appear in game due to a bug! so those are added too

* Added child blows rasperry and runs throne room reaction
* Added there's only one way to react throne room reaction
* Added Big strong soldier gets the ladies throne room recruit reaction
* Added I'll be a local hero throne room robbery reaction
* Added I wonder if you can comprehend throne room robbery reaction

* Added peasant growls throne room reaction
* Added hand on head groan thone room reaction
* Added angry sound storm out throne room reaction
* Fixed 5 throne room reactions to kicking someone out of court not appearing in game

**DENLAND VIDEO BUGFIXES**

Turns out recording Warsim videos is the best bugfixing system possible, because whenever I try to show off the game I encounter all the bugs! Another bunch found while delving into denland now all solved.

* Fixed drunken monkey performance gives two splitlines
* Fixed mine collapse code being negated by not enough miners to work code (all 3 mines)
* Added new screen for raiding rihhm
* Added new screen for enslaving rihhm

* Fixed smallhaven ruined village text colour set as yellow
* Added new screen for raiding smallhaven
* Added new screen for enslaving smallhaven
* Added new screen for looting smallhaven
* Added new indicators for gained gold and slaves in smallhaven

**BUGFIXES**

Lots of different bugs found through both testing and from reports from other people! RIP bugs

* Fixed dice/die problems with sudden death (credit u/Heisanevilgenius)
* Fixed grammar of the game 12's rule set
* Fixed dice/die problems with 12 game (credit u/Heisanevilgenius)
* Fixed knight wage change screen using soldiers instead of knights (credit u/billwanchalo)
* Fixed artifact hall being accesible anytime without buying it
* Fixed anointment of knight once per turn not working (credit UltimateBlade)
* Fixed road upgrade not benefitting harvest income if longer harvest law active
* Fixed harvest tools upgrade not benefitting harvest income if longer harvest law active
* Fixed buying steel tipped whips takes 5000 gold but will allow you to buy it with 3000 gold giving you -2000 if you only have 3k
* Fixed destroying arena doesnt destroy arena upgrades when you rebuild arena

**EVERYTHING ELSE**

And finally the stuff I couldn't categorise, a bundle of changes tweaks and new additions!

* Added ability to cancel attack when hiring bandit group to fight for you (credit u/TheGamingDictator)
* Added ability to pay for celebration from bank gold if not enough normal gold (credit u/TheGamingDictator)
* Added ability to pay for celebration from mix of bank gold and normal gold if not enough (credit u/TheGamingDictator)

Another update born out of adding and tweaking things alongside the combat update stuff. This update adds a bunch of new things including some changes to the upgrade screens layout I'm really happy with.

UPGRADE SCREEN ADDITIONAL IMPROVEMENTS

I was looking at the upgrade screens that were changed in the last update when it dawned on me that there was another way of making the upgrade screen more intiutive, by adding colour to show if it is buyable, too expensive or sold making it much easier to tell. Now upgrades you can't afford are coloured red, stuff you can afford is coloured green, and stuff you've maxed out goes grey, it's a much bigger improvement on upgrades.

* Added new colour system for upgrade screen options
* Added new colour system for recruitment screen upgrades
* Added new colour system for Arena upgrades
* Added new colour system for Prison upgrades
* Added new colour system for Throne room upgrades
* Added new colour system for Militia upgrades

NEW TOOLS AND SIGNS UPGRADES

With all the work done on the upgrades screens recently I thought it was time to add some more actually upgrades, these 14 new ones were the result of a quick brainstorm.

* Added throne room signs upgrade (500 gold)(+5% more throne room visitors)
* Added bigger throne room signs upgrade (1000 gold)(+10% more throne room visitors)
* Added giant throne room signs upgrade (2000 gold)(+15% more throne room visitors)
* Added Wooden Climbing picks (100 gold)(knights more likely to succeed when climbing)
* Added Iron Climbing picks (250 gold)(knights more likely to succeed when climbing)
* Added Steel Climbing picks (400 gold)(knights more likely to succeed when climbing)
* Added Gold Climbing picks (1000 gold)(knights more likely to succeed when climbing)
* Added Diamond Climbing picks (2500 gold)(knights more likely to succeed when climbing)
* Added Foreign mercenary signs (500 gold)(+5% larger foreign merc groups)
* Added Bigger Foreign mercenary signs (500 gold)(+5% larger foreign merc groups)
* Added Giant Foreign mercenary signs (500 gold)(+5% larger foreign merc groups)
* Added Tribute Collection Boxes (400 gold)(+5% tribute from explore locations)
* Added Tribute Collection Stands (1500 gold)(+10% tribute from explore locations)
* Added Tribute Collection Outposts (15000 gold)(+25% tribute from explore locations)

GOT YOUR NOSE

A suggestion based on the mouthless race prefix added previously, now you can get races without noses! Thanks gaming dictator

* Added new race prefix 'Noseless' (will have no noses, -3 battlescore) (credit u/Thegamingdictator)
* As a result of this there are now 344'624 new noseless and noseless combo races in game (75814746 total races) (credit u/Thegamingdictator)

NEW NAMES

A few new names for the characters of your world

* Added 10 new ghoul and gillghoul names
* Added 3 new giant names (Stampy, Stone-Roller, and Boulder-Roller)
* Added 10 new orc names

HIRE SCREEN TWEAKS

Following on from fairly recent hire screen tweaks the menu has been extender further to include troop wages and some other tweaks

* Added wages screen to the recruit and sell troops menu (credit Defender)
* Added new dynamic hire text showing how many you can afford and you already have for goblins (credit u/TheGamingDictator)
* Added new dynamic hire text showing how many you can afford and you already have for bandits (credit u/TheGamingDictator)
   
NEW REACTIONS

More throne room reaction additions in an attempt to make everything a little more random and dynamic

* Added 'it's almost harvesting season' reaction to peasant arrest (credit u/theGamingDictator)
* Added 'ill drink from your skull' arrest reaction (credit u/theGamingDictator)
* Added 'honour your blessing' recruitment reaction
* Added 'Hissing child' child arrest reaction (with sfx)
* Added 'Hissing peasant' peasant arrest reaction (with sfx)

BUGFIXES

Only a few bugfixes this update, can't tell if that's lucky or not!

* Fixed spacing issue for faction attack announcement
* Fixed there is a pretty long line missing of bug (credit u/theGamingDictator)
* Fixed become a village of farming text bug
* Fixed yellow text and layout of giving mercs land screen (credit u/TheGamingDictator)

EVERYTHING ELSE

New sound effect and some other things!

* Added new trumpet sound effect add to the random trumpet sound system (Credit Omer)

So this update has taken the majority of my time this week but it has resulted in tons more possible random races that you'll likely never see in game, as well as a bunch of tweaks and tons of bugfixes.

RACE SYSTEM EXPANDED

Big thanks to u/AdministrativeTreat7, Ash, Bookrage and AlternateEnding for many of these suggestions. I did the math and these 22 new prefixes add a total of 6,841,800 possible new races, be they Rainbow Halflings, Super Trolls, Damned Ghouls, Scrawny Hobgoblins, Might Gnomes, Bush Zombies, Conjoined Necromancers, Wasteland Goblins or millions more! Each of them has different effects and bonuses and I can't wait to see them in my gameworld!

* Added new race prefix 'Rainbow' (skin changes colour at random)(+3 battlescore) (Now you can get Rainbow Trolls and Rainbow Dwarves and 345 thousand other Rainbow races)
* Added new race prefix 'Weak' (Battlescore /2) (credit u/AdministrativeTreat7)
* Added new race prefix 'Paragon' (Battlescore +15)(Population lvl +3)(Civ lvl +2)(Most units are elite units)

* Added new race prefix 'Wasteland' (+24 Battlescore)(Half Pop)(-1 Civ Lvl)

RACE PREFIX CHANGES AND TWEAKS

While checking through all of the prefixes in the game I found many with effects that didn't make sense, a few with bugs in them, and a handful that were lacking features that would improve them slightly. Now the already existant races possible have been given lots of tweaks and changes that hopefully make a lot more sense! I also removed some duplicate race prefixes I'd noticed in there that were slightly different to eachother but not enough to warrant them being seperate

* Made Garden races green skinned
* Made Garden races have baby faces

Hello everyone, while work ramps up more on the combat stuff I've still been bobbing in and out of fixing and adding things here and there, and as usual this has cumulated into enough for a nice little update. Still now that combat is in the testing phase these side updates may drop in frequency as combat development amplifies even more.

BEAST RACE DEVELOPMENTS

I saw a magic the gathering card online while searching for new warsim ideas, the card was Beetleform Mage . This gave me the idea to add a prefix that would take any animal and turn it into a mage form race. So you can get 'Dogform Mages' 'Turtleform Mages' 'Eagleform Mages', they will have a lower race population but will usually be fairly civilised. Thanks to the complexity of the games race generator at this point, adding the new beast type modifier adds 262 new beast form core races that mixed with the many combinations and singular race prefixes takes us from 85.9 million possible races to 94.8 million, which is quite a huge jump!

Check the card out here - https://cdn11.bigcommerce.com/s-0kvv9/images/stencil/1280x1280/products/250977/345775/mtgdragonsmazebeetleformmage__94788.1519978736.jpg?c=2&imbypass=on

* Added 'ANIMALform Mages' beast race type (+8'891'494 new possible races)
* Now 94'887'852 possible races, Was 85,996,358
* Updated Animal folk description (credit u/TrueIronKing)
* Updated Animalmen description (credit u/TrueIronKing)
* Updated Demi-Animal race description (credit u/TrueIronKing)

BLACKMARKET PEACE

Some of you may not know that with a chaos orb artifact it's possible to calm the blackmarket down and put essentially a peace seal on it, meaning you can't attack it, brawls don't happen in taverns etc, it was pointed out that the screens related to this little side effect were so poorly done it wasn't even clear why they were happening, I have since upgraded all of them from single short lines to having their own screens and being far clearer.

* Added new screen and sound effect for removing chaos orb from sewer wall
* Added new screen and sound effect for putting chaos orb in sewer wall
* Added new screen for wall watcher prophecy screen
* Added new screen for pitside tavern brawl blocked by market peace
* Added new screen for slums pit blocked by market peace
* Added new screen for dragons kneecap tavern blocked by market peace
* Added new screen for blackrow tavern blocked by market peace
* Added improved screen for being unable to attack the blackmarket explaining it's due to chaos orb in sewer wall (credit u/Ziven001)
* Updated graphic of the wall with the orb in it

SOUND EFFECTS

Not much in the way of sound development but a random sound effect that is used lots in the game is further diversified.

* Added 3 new Mmm sound effects used in various places in game (from Cafofo's sound pack)

PREFIXES

A bunch of new prefixes, my favorite is 'The Pilferer' just because it sounds funny to me. There he is Halmyr the Pilferer!

* Added new name suffix 'Shadowcloak' (+21 battlescore)
* Added new name suffix 'The Audacious' (+9 battlescore)
* Added new name suffix 'The Whelk' (-10 battlescore)
* Added new name suffix 'The Envoy' (+5 battlescore)
* Added new name suffix 'The Dream-Feaster' (+39 battlescore)
* Added new name suffix 'The Agonised' (-5 battlescore)
* Added new name suffix 'The Opal' (+11 battlescore)
* Added new name suffix 'The Opaline' (+10 battlescore)
* Added new name suffix 'of the Farbogs' (+9 battlescore)
* Added new name suffix 'Nightwing' (+19 battlescore)
* Added new name suffix 'The Pilferer' (+1 battlescore)
* Added new name suffix 'The Crawler' (+2 battlescore)

KINGDOM TYPES

Thanks almost entirely to u/RabidRab there's another big expansion of the kingdom types in the world further mixing up what kind of kingdoms you can find. The list includes some unusual ones such as the scottish based 'Mormaerdom' and the welsh based 'Teyrnas'

* Added new kingdom type 'Jarldom' (King: High-Jarl)(Lord: Thane)(Civ req: 3)
* Added new kingfom type 'Kingdom' (King: High-King)(Lord: Jarl)(Civ req: 3)
* Added new kingdom type 'Divine-Kingdom' (King: God-King)(Lord: Low-King)(Civ: 4)(Credit u/RabidRab)

* Changed divine kingdom with pope ruler to Papacy (Credit u/RabidRab)

KINGDOM UPGRADE IMPROVEMENTS

And a slight immersion tweak in that having recruitment signs somewhat reduces people visiting you in the throne room asking to join you.

DRINKING OVERSIGHT

In a playtest where I had no gold I ended up getting drunk and ending up into minus gold, then realised no tavern drinking code had a check to see if you had the gold first, now they all do and a few other bugs were discovered and fixed during this process!

* Added inaccessible option change if you cant afford drinks in taverns

Doesn't fit anywhere else but Looker845 from steam pointed out it would be much better to have the explore milestone give you a bonus explore point and not count as an explore used, otherwise it doesn't actually do anything as you gain a point but lose it having explored to find the stone.

Hello everyone,

So no combat update this friday and I won't be releasing an update until the first friday of the new year but instead here's something I've worked on this week!

Mods! I've wanted to do this for a while and decided it would be a nice idea as a gift to the Warsim community for Christmas!

Warsim - Mount and Blade Warband Mod

Here's an album showing off this mod - https://imgur.com/a/dtTTtQR

I spent a lot of time with this one as I'm a serious mount and blade fan. The player is a small faction at neutral with the main kingdoms of the mount and blade world (minus the vaegirs). The mod gives you full troop trees, each faction uses denars, all the leaders and major lords, mercenary companies and relevant bandit factions.

Perfect for a mount and blade fan! Beware though as the kingdoms of Calradia are pretty tough out of the gate.

Warsim - Skyrim Mod

The development of this mod began with one of the weirdest coincidences I've ever had in Warsim. I had pre-chosen where the main factions were going to go, first the Imperials, then Stormcloaks, etc. As I got to edit the faction names in the save file I saw that the second faction which was going to be Ulfrics factions was aptly randomly named Thumm (like Thuum, the name for the way of the voice in skyrim).

https://i.imgur.com/MEswxJ3.png

It was definitely a sign to ensure I dropped the best mod I could make!

Here's an album showing off the skyrim mod - https://imgur.com/a/idHxXKk

The mod sets you as Jarl Balgruuf of Whiterun, with your staff being Proventius and Irileth. The world is made up of two major factions, the Imperials and the Stormcloaks (Imperials have more land, stormcloaks have more units), but also includes the College of Winterhold, The Forsworn, and the Thalmor as smaller main factions.

There are also bandits and mercenary groups relevant to the game, each faction uses septims as their currency and troop trees are all sorted. Faction relations were also fairly finely tweaked so that it makes sense who is fighting who.

Warsim - Uberhard Mod

This one is more just a challenge, the races of this world were specifically selected to be tough and are started with enlarged populations. Behemoth Trolls, Colossal Godlings, Titan Vampires, Nightmare Ogres, and Deatheater Wizards.

Good luck!

Where to play?

All of these mods should be loadable as save files from the latest updated version of the game on steam and itch.io!

I hope you all enjoy and have a great holiday period, and thank you all for the support in developing this game, it really means a lot!

Cheers

I want to thank everyone for the awesome support this last year and I hope everyone has a good Christmas.

DWARF FORTRESS MOD

Oh right and forgot to mention above, the great response to the other mods got me thinking, and given that both skyrim and mount and blade were great inspirations why not a mod honouring Dwarf fortress, a game which definitely was a great influence to Warsim. So here it is:

You play as a ruler called King Urist McYou and rule a small humble kingdom with a little population and territorial holding.

The Kingdoms you share the world with are - https://i.imgur.com/hcsroFp.png

* The Kingdom of Bronzemurder (Bronze Dwarves) - https://i.imgur.com/25wJqTA.png
* The Creation of Ferns (Elite Dwarves)
* Glazedcoast (Stupid Dwarves) - https://i.imgur.com/Nzmdh70.png
* The Kingdom of Boatmurdered (White Dwarves)
* The Field of Kindling (Cannibal Elves) - https://i.imgur.com/IzARnMi.png

The Creation of Ferns is somewhat of an anomaly being a dwarf kingdom ruled by an Elf - https://i.imgur.com/9sF8jRc.png

There are also 5 bandit groups - https://i.imgur.com/R7Y8a40.png

And several mercenary groups such as The Pit Dwarves led by Urist McKhur the Lost. - https://i.imgur.com/9tTSPTZ.png

You have a great group of staff to help you rule the realm. - https://i.imgur.com/TP11f4S.png

I've tried to honour Dwarf fortress as best as I can with the mod.

You will find the mod in your saves folder, just load the save called DFMOD.

I'd like also to welcome the hundreds of new people who have picked up Warsim this week during the christmas sale! Thank you for the support and welcome to the community.

Merry Christmas / Happy Holidays to you all

Cheers

16K SALES CELEBRATION

Hello everyone, so this update is something of a celebration for me and Warsim as I can happily (having checked steams recently updated rules that allow devs to talk numbers) announce that Warsim has sold over 16,000 copies on steam finally since it's entrance to the platform in June 2017.

I could never have imagined this would ever transpire and honestly want to thank every single person who contributed to that number and has the game in their steam library, it's not easy for a game that runs through a console and uses a purely text based visage to do well when competing with tens of thousands of games with flashy graphics but I'm glad we've been able to carve a place out here.

To celebrate I set myself a goal of making 160 feature and bugfix changes for an update and have finally today managed to complete it, that's only 1 feature per 100 copies sold but it's the best I can do Smiley

All jokes aside I am honored the game has done this well and hope it will continue along this path. I'm not stopping working on Warsim until I can complete a good number of major promised features as get it out of early access! (even post-ea I don't plan to stop with Warsim updates)

THE UPDATE

This update rather than having one single focus has many areas of improvement in different directions, now I plan to finish scrubbing through my immediate list of stuff that's accumulated over the holiday period before returning to combat update development!

COMBAT ACADEMY EXPANDED (17 features)

Hello everyone, so I'm putting this update out as I'm going away for a few days and won't be able to reply or work on the game at all. It's been hard work but there are a ton of things in this update that nicely improve the game, I am in such a rush I can't even make screenshots for the changelog so you'll have to see the changes yourself!

Will be back as normal by next week!

DEMON GATE INTRO (4 features)

I figured discovering the demonic gate should be a special moment in game so I've tried to expand it a little.

* Added unique version of intro text if you are a demonic agent
* Added unique version of intro text if demonic horde is dead
* Added demon gate location name is changed to be less conspicuous until discovered

DEATH TO THE MAD KING (6 features)

The mad king is one of the possible game starts you can have, being the mad kings child offers the ability to speak to or release the mad king but no option to end it all and finish him off, now I've added it with a little bit of randomisation to how it goes including a rare random event.

* Added ability to ask about the mad king

Taking a tour of your new land, and filling the garrison with troops. As well as a new possible and stackable market boom event that can be triggered by certain aspects of these features.

* Added new screen following capture of the Blackmarket that allows you to do numerous things

ITEM DISCOVERY IN THE THRONE ROOM (25 features)

These item discovery encounters grow your treasury by the value of the item from a list of 60, the encounters are rarer the lower your public opinion is and there's also a very small chance that the item is some kind of illusionary trick. I have made sure they aren't super frequent but they should be completely randomly generated meaning even I can't predict what will happen, could make for some very interesting random throne room events that no one else has seen but you!

Hello Everyone, so this update comes at a big time! We have three things all colliding on this date: Hitting 1500 subscribers on the subreddit, The Steam Lunar Sale, And the Vassal update!

THE LUNAR SALE

Warsim is now 40% off on steam for the Lunar sale, now most if not all of the people reading the changelog on this sub already have the game and have seen it on sale many times before but as always if you don't have it nows the time, and if you know anyone who might like it!

I'm also always open for ideas on places to share or post the update/sale/or game in general, the internet is a broad place and the majority of the people there are not going to be Warsim players, but some might and I'm always up for finding them Smiley

THE VASSAL UPDATE

This is primarily an update of the vassal system but there are still 109 additional features and bugfixes alongside the vassal stuff so lots of new stuff to dig in to!

**VASSAL UPDATE (131 Total features)**

Vassals, the result of having great strength in the game but really not the strongest of features beyond it's symbolism. This update plans to change that and make vassals much more interactive as well as the process of getting them.

**LOOSE VASSAL UPDATE ITEMS (7 features)**

* Added all vassals have same actions you have with allies
* Fixed text colour and spacing of pre-existant vassal text
* Added ability to take 0 tribute gold from vassal (Credit Defender)
* Added relation boost and special text at end of turn if taking no tribute from vassal
* Added new clarification screen in vassal attack (Credit u/videovillain)
* Added a vassalisation randomised cooldown (3-18 years) once a kingdom rebels or gains independence from you
* Made it only possible to attempt to vassalise a kingdom once per year (used to be infinite stupidly)

**VASSAL REVOLTS (5 features)**

Treat your vassals bad and they will eventually revolt against you, how you deal with this is up to you!

* Added warning event when vassal is on the verge of revolt (6 dynamic responses depending on leader personality) (credit u/RabidRab)
* Added ability for vassal to revolt if relation drops below 0
* Added ability to accept vassal revolt independence (6 dynamic responses depending on leader personality)
* Added ability to reject vassal revolt independence and declare war (6 dynamic responses depending on leader personality)
* Added sound effects for vassal revolts (different sounds peace and war)

**OFFER OF VASSALISATION (48 features)**

The offer of vassalisation previously was just one of two single lines of text based on a small relation and leader type based dice roll. You either got 'Our kingdom will burn before joining you', or 'KingdomLeader accepts'. Now that has been replaced with a large and dynamic system that allows you to choose an emissary to deliver such news as well as a much more complex system that decides on the outcome of the attempt with a fair bit of randomness dashed in. You can have coin flips, dead emissaries, preposterous offers, and lots more turning this once single line of information into a part of the game in its own right!

* Added breakdown of the factors of success for attempting vassalisation
* Added chance modifiers for having significantly larger than enemy in vassilisation attempt (credit u/ShengjiYay)
