Hail! Do you have what it takes to lead an empire?
Empires of Azeroth is a different kind of in-game roleplay. Just read the rules, and find out.
NOTE: All of the rules are OOC. But since this is a civilization game, I'll say OOG (Out of Government).
Empires of Azeroth is a game where you create an empire. Your empire will start out as a small city, but slowly, will expand to greatness and glory.
It is based in all of Azeroth, the Outlands, and any other place in World of Warcraft.
First, you must make your city. Start off with reading this, every page, and then put in the application. You can start in any unclaimed city or countryside in Azeroth. Yes, you are allowed to make your own imaginary city.
But now, to the big rules.
1. No overpowering, metagaming, or godmodding. This means no doing this for other players, no cheating, no knowing things that you shouldn't know, no any of that stuff.
2. You may invent new things, but keep it realistic! No fighter jets, this is based in the World of Warcraft universe!
3. If there is ever an argument, what I say is final. If a GM has to get in... Well, you know what happens.
4. No breaking these rules (did I really have to post this?).
5. Swearing, breaking of the ToA, and and spamming will NOT be tolerated.
6. I will not tolerate any absence of fun.
7. All of the posts I say about explaining the game is a rule.
8. START OFF WITH AN APPLICATION.
9. Yes, I am also Vallys.
HFPE: Hidden from Public Eyes. This is for if you want to do or say something about your nation that you want to keep hidden from other nations.
OOG: Out of Government. The equivalent to OOC in this game.
EoA: Empires of Azeroth, the game!
Read up, and get posting!

"How do I improve my empire? "
Well, here is how to do it. Projects. Projects can be anything: New technology, better training for military, better education, larger walls, anything realistic. Projects vary in time, for example: Would training elite soldiers take longer then making the plans for a new catapult? Yes. The time is decided by you, but make it realistic! I'm keeping an eye on this....
Population + Military:
Two numbers, one inside the other. You start out with a population of 1,000, and an army of 100 soldiers. They increase in size over time, the population 10% every year. The military is increased by various recruitment strategies, such as projects, drafting, or a caste system. Yes, calculators are legal.
Battles and Wars:
The biggy. Battles and wars are done between to players. The players must arm their soldiers for battle, and send them (which takes some time), while the attacker must keep a steady supply line to keep their soldiers healthy and in fighting condition. I will be the judge of the battle, and if I am in a battle, then I will choose another fair player for the job.
But remember: The tactics and quality win, not the numbers.
Note: If you attack a player and they are not online, you must wait for them and me to narrate the battle.
This is simple: Ten posts are one year. So, a page is two years.
In wars, it stays the same for players not involved, but those who are, it is reduced to ten posts is a week. After the war is over, they catch up to the normal time instantly. Wars that last more then 5 years also return to normal time, but stay in the war.
To claim land, you must invade it first. If it is an NPC, I will post its numbers and statistics, and then you can fight. If a player, you must fight it out.
The other possibility is annexation. You must gain the trust and friendship (forced or not) of them first annex them, however. I will post the outcome of the annexation if it is an NPC.
You claim land one sub-zone at a time.
Post an application, and go on to play!

*History of Empire: Kul Tiras has recently held off a naga and Bloodsail invasion, and is now on the rise, declaring total independence from the Alliance, they have become land-hungry. Worgen have infiltrated Crestfall and made the majority of the island into Worgen, a third have been cured, two thirds remain feral. Their navy is stronger than ever with the recent addition of Gnomish technology.

((They are very mobile at sea and in the air so ya they use Artillary from the sea along with plane's covering their fighter's on land))
OOG: Note, you only get the tech of your MAIN race, now. But be aware that wyvern riders can easily take a Gnomecopter, and the experienced troll berserker could put a spear through a gnomish mini-tank.
And Nightwatcher: Does your capital exist? Oh, and the Stranglethorn Coast isn't one subzone, it is many. Choose one subzone, and a capital that exists (or note that it is a city built on a subzone).
Name of Empire: Goblin Technological and Trade Cartel (GTT Cartel)
Capital: Booty Bay
Leader: (A trade prince, and they do not last very long.)

Race(s)(Say your main race): Goblin, with some Ogres and Hobgoblins
Military Technology (You gain your main race's tech): Goblin tech. We have one large war zeppelin with bombs that can take out a building and many cannons. Our war-goblins are on the backs of ogres, and the ogres have large weapons of their own. The goblin on top uses a variety of different other things. Also, we have mini-tanks for our elites. Our guards are well trained, using strange technological shields and hammers or such to fight. Our war ships are armed to the teeth with cannons, capable of taking out a normal ship very quickly.
Civilian Technology: Goblin tech, and we have extremely fast ships for their cargo size.
Defenses: Cannons and our soldiers.
*History of Empire: The GTT Cartel is so recent it doesn't have a history. It is an offshoot of the Steamwheedle Cartel, but independent, as we didn't like being under their control.

OOG: Let's call those islands a part of Landsend Beach, and then you can get that.
Or are those not the islands you are talking about?
We have opened trade with the Steamwheedle and Bilgewater Cartels!
We have put up strict anti-piracy and anti-smuggling laws, and are enforcing them greatly. Any pirates or smugglers who pirate any of our ships will be attacked.
A GTT Cartel Goblin ambassador arrives in the Cenarion Imperium. He walks up, and asks,
"Hello! I am Ambassador Oilycog, and I ask you if you would like either a zeppelin tower or a port made in your nation for trade with us and other nations! Note, we get to tax trade out of it."
Edited by Tarnak on 11/17/2010 1:54 PM PST
The ambassador is refused entrance into the Glade.
We dislike this business... The Ambassador returned to Booty Bay.
He then goes to the Zul'tarn trolls, and asks them the same.
The GTT Cartel has been renamed to the Richware Cartel. The Richware Cartel has decided to embargo the Cenarion Imperium, as they are not good money.
((So your Elendial? If your not... O_o. But it is every ten posts in a thread.))
- The Cenarion Imperium sends an ambassador and his entourage with gifts of fruit, furs, and friendship to Furbolg Hold, offering membership into the Cenarion Imporium.
The Furbolgs like the gifts, but say that they would like to know you more before they annex to you. After all, you just met.
((I advise you give them more gifts and have celebrations or meetings with their leaders and people, find their wantings, give them some, and offer some rewards for annexation. ))
Threats of violence. We take these seriously and will alert the proper authorities.
