About the Last Quad Standing Game

Postby Kaz » Sun May 11, 2008 11:50 am

LQS Game Information

LQS Signups are available during the NPP period only. Once protection has ended signups will no longer be an option. You can have up to 4 kingdoms and can ally with your faith. Although, with same faith war turned on, the only allies you can really count on, are your own realms. Who will be the Last Standing?


NPP Settings
Realms Allowed: 4
Max Turns: Unlimited
Turns Per Hour: 0
Starting Turns: 4500
Starting Acres: 500
NPP Turns: Time Based

Standard Game Settings
Max Turns: 150 (increases as game progresses)
Turns Per Hour: 5 (increases as game progresses)
Faith: random

Alliance Information
No guilds, but anything else goes.

Race Information
Races Available: All 9 races available
Race Statistics: Uses same stats as Massacre

Vacation Mode
This game is not effected by Vacation mode. Please be aware that if you place your account on vacation mode, any living LQS realms will not be made unattackable.

New Player Protection
Protection in LQS lasts for a period of time instead of a number of turns.

You will start with 4500 turns basic, and will also start with any additional turns that have been generated in game between starting and your creation.

You will get 0 turns per hour, and be able to tithe vast amounts more than the usual games.

The game will count down as the end of protection arrives.

When NPP ends the Maximum Turn cap will change from unlimited to 150, the turn rate will also change from 0 per hour to 5. Any turns that your realm has stored - over that total - will be lost. Use them before the end of NPP.


Same Faith Attacking
The ability to attack your own faith has been turned on in LQS. This should make alliances interesting.

You are not able to attack your own kingdoms.


Foriegn Affairs Screen - Accessed from Main
This is a slight modification from the screen in Massacre.

From this screen you can still claim the bounty from your kills, and also still view other realms kills.

However, rather than just listing Turns, the screen now has turns, cash, elan and land.

When claiming, you can pick ONE of those from dead.


LQS Scores Screen - Accessed from Scrolls
This is another screen from Massacre, have reduced anything related to deaths and averages

Have included the current actual top 20 in the summary.


Saved Builds Screen - Accessed from Township
This can be accessed during your first 1000 turns, it will replace whatever you have built, with the save. It will change your race if you pick a different race.

The current saved builds (public and private) have been developed in Massacre, due to the increased turnrate in LQS it may be mort effiecient to create some savebuilds for future LQS ages.


Ultimabase - Accessed from Steal
Ultimabase has been included, although the guild side of things has been removed.

All scouts are stored and accessble by others in your faith


Variable Turnrate / Max Turns
Ever 3 days following the end of NPP the turn rate and max turns will increase. Turn rate will go up in intervals of 1 turns (5,6,7,8...) Max turns goes up in intervals of 25 turns (150,175,200,225...)

Hi Kaz,

Think this should be edited to reflect the changes made?
Diplomacy in guilds is like sex in an elevator.....it looks real easy until you try it.
