A Campaign/Modified Melee Map

Summary:
A kingdom is being overrun by bandits and corrupted anarchists. You must take the lead of either one of the 3 warring(or allied) corrupted groups, or one of the three branches of the kingdom.


Ok, so I got the inspiration from playing Star Wars: Empire at War: Forces of Corruption. There is going to be a kingdom divided into 3 parts. A player can either take over a part, and command it, OR a nifty AI will be in charge (the AI is a reach for me right now). There will also be three factions of "corrupted" units, with a custom tech tree, and units. Again, each will either be played by a player, or have a nifty AI.


Both sides have unique ways of gathering resources which will be needed to create the armies and units to lead their side to victory.

The Kingdom's sections, a fishing village (gold) and a lumber camp (lumber) can either spend their resources or spread them to the rest of the team. (Highly recommended) The third group, the main city, will have to rely on the other parts for income. The village and camp will not have the same capabilities as the capital to generate a formidable force, so teamwork is needed.

The three corrupted groups however, will only gain money through pillaging, stealing, or controlling the village or camp. Gold and Lumber will also be available for very high trading costs, and through kingdom defects.


The citizens of each respective "section", whether it be a corrupted base, the lumber camp, etc... will abide by whichever side lays claim to that area. Each area can be captured by military force. This can be done by raising an army with money, or with the moral/defect system.(more on that later)


Each area is given a percentage of the total population. There are 14 areas, the Capital, Lumber Camp, Fishing Village, The Citadel, The Village, Farm 6x, and Corrupted Camp 3x. As your side captures an area, you gain that percentage of the population, and the old owner loses it. Whenever a side has more than 50% of the population, a timer will start. This side must hold a higher than 50% for the time to win. If the side loses its 50%+, then the timer stops WHERE IT IS. Each side will start with a time, and that time will never go up, only down.


The three kingdom factions will always be on the same team, but the corrupted forces will choose at the beginning of the game if they are all together, or all separate. There %'s will add together if on a team, or be separate if separate.


Based off of the upkeep system, there will be a Moral system. As you either get more units, or the enemy uses certain abilities your moral will worsen. The worse your moral the higher the chance a random unit will defect to the other side, changing sides on the spot, and bringing money with it.
