Shougi is the Japanese name for Chess.
This will be a multiplayer scenario of Risk with a geographical map of China.
The era will be the Han Dynasty, story: The Three Kingdoms Saga.
I was reading a manga about the Three Kingdoms for a long while now, and i couldn't grasp any idea of a cool country to make a scenario about except Asia.
Also i was playing Fate of The Dragon a few times and really enjoyed it. It's a rts game about the Three Kingdoms Myth.
This will be my new project, a Risk scenario in China.
It will be played as something like Risk. I'm not sure about the player amount, 6 or 8. The players will be able to train military units. Settlements are convertable. Also There will be a shop at the edge of the map (at the sea ofcourse), the shop will give new possibilities like heroes, (god)powers, and other things. Also heroes will pass away and new heroes will come to join your kingdom. The aim is to become the Emperor of China and create a new Dynasty or rebuild the fallen Han Dynasty. Every player will be a different faction with special units ofcourse. Disasters will happen. Titles to be taken like Landlord of a city, One of the 8th Watermirror Geniusses. Create alliances to fight powerfull enemies.
Each clan with its own bonusses in military, and special units.
Each city will provide you with resources over time.
Convert a city by destroying it till XX% and it will change player. This will convert all buildings of the city to you. Including military buildings.
Some cities will have special units from the Fort buildings (Mig, Fort, Hill Fort, Palace).
For example the Imperial Crossbowmen, Red Hare Cavalry, Northern Army Camelry, and more.
And ofcourse the terrifying Handicapped Warriors, with their mysterious leader.
Also there will be the possibility to call yourself Emperor if you conquer Chang'An (ancient capital), and a number of settlements.
