Twilight Crusade 5

IMPORTANT NOTE

We have made a number of crucial changes to the module. Please download the latest version of the module (v 5.05), which has these changes applied.

These include:

The people of the Nether Lands in the west are now known as Netherfolk not Twilight Peoples. This is to avoid confusion where in the old module the Twilight Folk were only in the west, while Twilight Lands described the entire map.

Clarification on faction creation process.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Module Changes

We have made a number of major changes to the previous edition (version 3).

The chief of these changes are as follows:

  • Technoknights and Technomages have been replaced with the Starfarers and their ships.
  • New victory conditions.
  • New teleportation spheres, which allow for greater interaction between the west and east areas of the map.
  • There is no longer an initial alliance phase of the game.
  • The number of races has been reduced.

Many smaller changes have resulted from these decisions. So even if you have played Twilight Crusade before, please read the module carefully. We hope you enjoy it!

 

 

 

 

 

Setup Process

There is no pledge system for Twilight Crusade, as players do not start in factions.

Instead, just send in one final version of your setup.

(If you send in a revised version, you may get one less turn before first production.)

We will keep a list of races that people have sent in setups for, and if these numbers start to look unbalanced, we will stop accepting setups of that type.

The deadline for setups is Monday 1st August, 2022.

We will then aim to launch the game before the end of August.

 

 

 

 

 

Game Details

You may play this game with the normal one position, but it is also permitted to run two positions at once.

If you join the game with two positions:
a.) You must continue to run two positions for at least 12 months, i.e. during the first year you may NOT drop one of them and continue with the other.
b.) They must be eligible to join the same faction (so be able to choose at least one of the same Cultural and Religious Aspects (see module for details).
c.) At least one of them must be a Hero, Starfarer or Adventuring Party.

All starting characters have three actions.

Overlord: CCAAA One Guild Str 12
Mercenary: DBB One Guild Str 12
Adventurer: DCBBA
Hero: EC
Starfarer: E One Guild Str 12

Guilds may be placed in module cities which contain the same race population as the guild sponsor. Overlords and Mercs may place their guild in the start location. Starfarers may place their guilds in a Starfarer Ship. No-one may place their guild in an ally’s home location.

Overlords and Mercs pop levels vary with racial size. Troop amounts are always calculated based the amount of pop and position type. Merc setups will start with Knight soldiers.

Searfarers are allowed.

King’s Peace will end after the 2nd production. The D1 and D2 orders are not prohibited by either the King’s Peace code, NOR by the ‘Spirit Based’ King’s Peace. You are allowed to issue these two orders without concern.

There are no faction NPCs.

Revolts every 2 months.
Training Level: 8

Module Errata

These have been fixed in v 5.05, and we recommend you download this. But if not, please note:

 

Errata for v 5.04

Religion 3 has spell 283 listed as level 2. It should be level 3.

 

Errata for v 5.03

Page 101 Cultural aspects has the incorrect race numbers for the Darkland and Iridescent races, they should say Iridescent (241-260) and Darkland (221-240).

 

Errata for v 5.02

Starfarer Adventures 2807, 2808, 2809, 2810, should say ‘be in force 10##’.

Adventure 141 Koros Possessed, should say: lose Starfarer title (if owned).
