Edwardian (3rd Edition)

This is the place for games which are currently being created and developed, and where the designer is listening to feedback from other players. The game is not ready to play, and the designers are not looking for sign-ups - indeed, they may have no intention of GMing the game themselves when it is finished. But your input is welcome!

Edwardian (3rd Edition)

Postby VaeVictis » 02 Jun 2018, 15:27

Here are some ideas for improvements of Edwardian based on observations of games being played on vDiplomacy (http://www.vdiplomacy.com/variants.php?variantID=110).

Most alterations seek to improve Britain's defensive position in the British Isles (very difficult with 3 SCs bordering Irish Sea in 2nd Ed.), decrease Germany's compact strength, cause Austria-Hungary to be slightly more compact, and give Turkey more available opening options for SCs (among other things).

Edwardian Diplomacy

Game Commencement
A game of Edwardian Diplomacy begins with the Spring 1901 Orders phase.

There are 51 total supply centers and 26 needed to win.

Great Power Home Supply Centers
Austria-Hungary: Vienna (Vie), Budapest (Bud), Trieste (Tri), Zagreb (Zag)
Britain: London (Lon), Belfast (Blf), Cairo (Cai), Edinburgh (Edi), Liverpool (Lvp)
France: Paris (Par), Algiers (Alg), Brest (Bre), Lyon (Lyo), Marseilles (Mar)
Germany: Berlin (Ber), Dresden (Dre), Essen (Ess), Frankfurt (Fra), Kiel (Kie), Stuttgart (Stu)
Italy: Rome (Rom), Bologna (Bol), Milan (Mil), Naples (Nap)
Russia: St. Petersburg (StP), Kiev (Kiv), Moscow (Mos), Riga (Rig), Sevastopol (Sev), Warsaw (War)
Turkey: Constantinople (Con), Damascus (Dam), Erzurum (Erz), Smyrna (Smy)

Initial Placement
Austria-Hungary: Army Vienna (A Vie), Army Bosnia (A Bos), Army Budapest (A Bud), Fleet Trieste (F Tri)
Britain: Fleet London (F Lon), Fleet Cairo (F Cai), Fleet Edinburgh (F Edi), Fleet Gibraltar (F Gib), Army Liverpool (A Lvp)
France: Army Paris (A Par), Army Algiers (A Alg), Fleet Brest (F Bre), Army Lyon (A Lyo), Army Marseilles (A Mar)

Turkey: Fleet Constantinople (F Con), Army Damascus (A Dam), Army Erzurum (A Erz), Army Macedonia (A Mac)

Special Notes On Placement
Several Armies and Fleets begin the game occupying non-supply center spaces supplied remotely from vacant home supply center spaces. These include: Army Bosnia (A Bos) supplied from Zagreb (Zag); Fleet Gibraltar (F Gib) supplied from Belfast (Blf); Army Macedonia (A Mac) supplied from Smyrna (Smy); Fleet Apulia (F Apu) supplied from Bologna (Bol).

Special Rules & Map Notes
Gibraltar: The Gibraltar (Gib) space functions as it was originally designed in the 1900 variant by B. M. Powell; fleets and armies may occupy the space, Fleets and armies being able to move from both Morocco (Mor) and Spain (Spa). Gibraltar also acts as a sea space for convoys with armies being allowed to be convoyed through a fleet occupying Gibraltar.
Split Coastal Spaces:
- Spain (Spa) is divided into north, west, and south coasts.
- St. Petersburg (StP) is divided into north and south coasts.
Land Bridges: There is a land bridge that connects Belfast (Blf) and Clyde (Cly) for army and fleet movement.
Canal Spaces: Cairo (Cai), Constantinople (Con), and Kiel (Kie) are canal spaces that allow for fleet and army movement without split coasts.
Miscellaneous:
- Ionian Sea (Ion) and Tyrrhenian Sea (Tyr) do not border.
- Denmark (Den) and Sweden (Swe) border for land and sea movement, but Denmark does not split the coast of Sweden (as in Classic Diplomacy).
