LOL my diplos have very different rules from regular ones.
Please read the rules.
We have the Congolese president attempting to lead a team of Congolese provincial governors against the undeclared invasion of Uganda led by Museveni (me) and Rwanda led by Kagame (Taran). Uganda and Rwanda are villians and are NOT supposed to respect Congolese sovereignty at all just like IRL (this is literally written!).
1.Congolese President: Force Uganda and Rwanda to accept Congolese sovereignty over Congolese territories.
2.Uganda & Rwanda: Force the Congolese president to concede sovereignty in any matter. That means if we get to annex Bukavu or deploy troops in Ituri with the consent of the Congolese president we win and the Congolese president loses.
3.Congolese Governors: You win by existing by the time the game ends.
What happened in that game (it's the second Congo RP) is that we successfully got the governors of Katanga and Maniema to side with us and rebel against the Congolese government. Hence we kept marching into Congolese hinterland under the name of "Congolese Movement for Democracy and Progress" (CMDP) "rebels".
When I hosted the first game I lost easily as the Congolese leader. This time Congo has been strengthened but no longer has Tanzania as an ally. It turns out that the game is still unbalanced against the Congolese president. Next time I will strengthen the Congolese president more by allowing him/her to deploy troops in several key cities.
@PoF I haven't denied that Uganda and Rwanda do evil in Congo just like what they do IRL. It's up to Earl and his team to prevent us from colonizing your country and conquering your people while pretending to be domestic rebels. Sorry but you failed. We subjugated Bukavu, Kisangani and Mbuji-Mayi. We are at the borders of Kananga and Mbandaka. We will install our puppet leader in Kinshasa while you patriots are herded to a kangaroo court in Bukavu for a show-trial and imprisonment. Sorry but we are RPing as the bad guys and that's what we will do.
And yes. This is all not true Warlight. Lol.
Allow me to explain.
On the board, the only thing that matters is 1-0. You do this by eliminating your opponents from the board using the income and position you are given. No fancy diplomacy, no fancy roleplaying, no human interaction matters to true Warlight: the only thing that matters is the end result. All the rules you make up to create a pseudo-reality are only able to mask the truth, that 1-0 is all that matters. Embrace this and learn to enjoy 1v1 and your life on this game will be infinitely more satisfying.
