Age

From The Utopian Encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Each game of Utopia is broken up into separate Ages.

Each Age is unique, because every Age has different rules (game mechanics and races abilities), it is unwritten rule, that something changes. So new Age is not restart only.

An Age is usually 3 months long.

After the Age ends the game servers are reset and each province reverts back to its starting size in a new location.

Relations:

  • It is unclear how War looks at early Ages. We know they existed.
  • We know exactly that at least since 5th Age were Multi-Kingdom Wars. It was needed just to declare a War to any Kingdom (any size). Other participants could join the War.
  • We don't know if multi-kingdoms were limited by maximum or not. At least at 11th Age (A. of Nobility) War was limited to 5 participants (also limited size).
  • We have poor information about Peace. Peace existed at least from 11th Age, and there is evidence it exists since beginning.
  • Peace was looked like Peaceful Stance, you declare intention, but only for one/several Kingdoms and have benefits from this.
  • If both Kingdom was in Peace, both of them have Binding Peace, which has same effect as Non-Aggression Pact now-days
  • At the Age of Valour rules changes. Multi-Kingdoms Wars were abolished.

  • At the Age of Conspiracy removed Peaceful Stance was removal
  • It looks like conditions of End War never changes


Politics:

  • Politics looks like now mostly in all Ages: need to have more than 50% of Kingdom Networth or been elected by maximum votes, not less then 35%
  • First Kingdom Heads were prudish, so they call them-self Regents
