I wasn't planning on writing a dust-cover book review today, but...

"This blog illuminates so many of the dark and dusty corners of combat mechanics that it can truly be described as essential reading for anyone even remotely interested in the military aspects of Illy."

There are issues and considerations in there that I wasn't personally aware of; and that's pretty astonishing.  ofc, I'll take that as evidence of great game design Wink

Well done, sir.

Wow, that's quite an endorsement. Thank you, GM Stormcrow.

I cannot take credit for everything on the site. Many people have taught me about Illyriad PvP over the years--a few as mentors, many as comrades, and some by rather competently trying to kill me. Tinkinator is particularly excellent at assembling and analyzing numbers (in addition to being a wicked siege planner, a proficient API user and a great web app developer). I have always enjoyed the Illyriad battle system as one where a few basic actions can combine into very complicated maneuvers by teamwork and terrain. Easy to learn, hard to master, with just enough crunch for technical players. Hopefully Warmongering in Illyriad can help to enlighten people on the finer points of PvP, particularly all the new players arriving from Steam (congrats on that, by the way!).
