For two thousand years, since foolish men ruined the Divine Golden Age of Peace, the lands of Cantaboria have been plagued by unnatural evils. Nations rose and fell: wars, disease, zombies and foul sorceries ravaging all. Once the mighty empire of Ayathgaron gave hope of ending these millennia of chaos and suffering but now decays into insouciant decadence. Yet will another great nation arise in its wake to restore civilization - as the Legacy of Ayathgaron?

(
* The Wild Hunt of Gaiala transports the Melan fleet from Kabrevo Plain to Pearl Sea – overnight, miraculously, so the Ursus fleet attempting to retreat was unaware its way was blocked.)

His sights set on annexing the entirety of Hepmonaland for the growing Holy Melandrian Empire by the end of the year, the Divinely Inspired Paladin-Emperor Lucilius the Mad vows to subjugate the known world in the name of Religious Unity, and it soon becomes common knowledge that - gripped as he is by a wild-eyed zealotry - that he considers any and all of Melan's former treaties void, insisting that Melan can no longer treat with any other known nation - not even the so called 'empire' of Ayathgaron - as equals, and that to survive in his new Cantaboria anyone who would call themself a ruler should be made to swear fealty or be utterly destroyed in the name of all the gods!”

“No one seems to have enthusiasm for diplomacy so I'd better just KILL THEM ALL”

The ruler of Melan is, by some elements, accused of having misread his visions of a ruinous undead future. They claim that the lord of knowledge must instead have been warning him of the first recorded invasion of native Melandrian soil, but that their emperor was too obsessed with his own prestige and so concerned with organising a worldwide crusade against the unliving that he was too blind to see the danger.

Following the troubling dreams plaguing the mind of the Paladin-emperor of Melan, the priests of the imperial theocratic conclave have decided that the best course is to thank Safieros for his warnings with worship and sacrifice and try to organise the nations of the world into a single crusading body determined to see the walking dead dispatched.
Emissaries hailing from Melan arrive at courts across Cantaboria, spreading word of the grim potential future that may become a reality should the zombie threat go unchecked, imploring them to set aside their differences and fight the undead menace together or prepare to face their impending doom.”

"Diplomatic talks between the nation of Elsea and hordes of Ursus nations were never held. My extensive research has discovered the reasons primarily stem from pride on both sides. Elsea were suddenly under new management who were unaware of the politics of the area but briefly informed of a tenuous agreement with 'barbarians to the south' shortly before one of the previous regime's diplomats was beheaded*. As to the motives of the leaders of Ursus we can only speculate now due to their lack of surviving written records. From archeology on their early battle sites, the initial small skirmishing armies used implies that they expected the wars outcome to be decided in a years time and were not prepared for the long siege mentality the new leaders from the scarlet brotherhood had brought with them." - Excerpt from 'History of the People's Republic of Elsea' by Professor R.N Collins Imnryr University
*this scholar has to concede the thinning of diplomat numbers probably had something to do with the lack of communication

- “Korenth Zan, the Father of Obedience, sent an ambassador to the court of the Ruby Skull Throne in Elsea, bearing a simple message: 'Submit to the Scarlet Brotherhood or be destroyed'. When the ruling Princes contemptuously refused, the ambassador presented a list of thirty minor nobles of the highest Necromon lineages. Twenty-seven of the nobles were found dead by the next sunrise, slain by red-hooded assassins; two others remained alive but had been severely injured. The Princes surrendered. A ship flying the Scarlet Sign docked in Imnryr's port - unloading many savage Hepmonaland warriors, an Elder Brother monk with direct authority from the Father of Obedience, and subservient scarlet-robed monks to be 'advisors' of the surviving Princes...” [Elsea passes from TonyH to AlexT]

THE AYATHGARON CAMPAIGN RULES
The campaign will be played according to standard Diplomacy rules, with a few additions detailed below.
Here is a copy of the Diplomacy rules (4th edition). Other versions are available from Diplomacy-Archive.com.
Orders should be e-mailed to reach the GM by 10:30pm of Deadline Day, the date given on the latest version of The Map.

BRIEF SUMMARY OF ADDITIONAL RULES
1) The map looks different but is functionally the same as the standard map, with England extended into two nations and Africa extended into two more.
2) Tribute: Each year (Spring) you can decide whether to pay 'Tribute' to the Old Empire, which may gain you defensive support in exchange for sometimes involuntarily giving support with inactive units.
3) Tithe: Each Spring you choose a deity, to decide which one of the divine Blessings/Curses will occur that year-end; and each Autumn may get to vote for which nation receives that Blessing/Curse.
4) Under some quite rare circumstances, Zombie armies/fleets may appear and start wandering randomly about.

That's it. Here are the details...

TRIBUTE TO THE EMPIRE OF AYATHGARON
Most nations initially pay tribute by default, but can change that any year by saying so in Spring, or to (re-)start paying. Nations are accordingly listed on the current Map page as Tributary or Free. Units of a tributary nation will automatically be deemed supported by available units (i.e. adjacent, and not otherwise moving/supporting) of any tributary nation, but only for actions which are: 1) within the supported unit's original territory; or 2) against non-tributaries.

TITHE TO THE THEOCRACY OF FRANCHIA
Each nation worships their default deity, but you can change that for any one year by specifying another (or "All Gods" or "No Gods") in Spring.
The deity worshipped by the most nations each year (determined in Spring) will bestow their Blessing/Curse on a target nation (selected in Autumn) at the year's end.
Target nation is selected by vote of the nations worshipping that particular deity, or All Gods, this year. Votes are submitted with Autumn orders. The vote for any nation worshipping 'No Gods' this year is reduced by one (due to the lessened power of the priests to implement the gods' will there).
In cases of tied selection for deity or recipient the casting vote will be made by Pope-Hero Aesop himself (i.e. the GM, via random die-roll).

The Gods of Cantaboria and their Blessings/Curses:
ILMETHIR, Goddess of Peace - “Healing”
- Next season, recipient can specify one of their units to gain an extra support in Defence (i.e. only if not moving).
MAFEK, God of War - “Berserkergang”
- Next season, recipient can specify one of their units to gain an extra support in Attack (i.e. only if moving).
SAFIEROS, God of Knowledge - “Prescience”
- Next season, the nation can give a conditional order to any one of their units.
THRUNDAR, God of Making - “Reconstruction”
- Recipient must immediately change one of their units from an Army to a Fleet, or vice versa.
GAIALA, Goddess of Nature - “The Wild Hunt”
- Recipient specifies one of their units to immediately move to a random neighbouring space.
LANRAKUS, God of the Moon - “Lunacy”
- One unit of the recipient is randomly selected and will be ordered by 'Diplomatic Anarchy' next season.
NOTRET, Goddess of Disease - “Famine”
- Recipient nation can support one less unit than their supply centres this year.
HETADUN, God of Death - “Zombies”
- Zombie army appears in a random vacant territory of the recipient nation's homeland (after builds).

ZOMBIE UNITS
Zombie armies/fleets require no Supply Centre to maintain and are only destroyed by being dislodged with no possible retreat. Zombie units will move or hold randomly, as determined by the GM with the roll of a die. If more than one Zombie unit targets the same territory, the first moves and the others support it. Zombies are not tributary to Ayathgaron, but the Empire requires its tributaries to give any available support to Zombies in conflict with non-tributary ('free') nations. Supply Centres captured by Zombie units revert to neutrality.

NMR POLICY - “NO MOVES RECEIVED”
Units of nations for which no orders are received by a given deadline will stand and mutually-support where possible, or retreat as decreed by the GM in the case of dislodgements; Disbandments will instead become Zombies (this includes unordered disbandments for nations which have not otherwise NMRed) using the normal 'furthest-from-home, fleets-before-armies' rule; NMRing players are not disqualified and may still submit orders for any later season (unless/until a new player is found for that nation).

HOW TO WIN
As per standard Diplomacy rules, you win when you control at least HALF of all supply centres. On this map that's 24 (there are 48 centres).
However if a majority of players vote for "Game End", then whoever has the most centres wins a partial victory - shared with as many other players as necessary to make up the 24, in order of the number of centres they control. Ties broken by whoever has submitted "Press" which adds most character to the setting, in the GMs view.
Alternatively, some other grouping of 24+ centres could be voted to win - but any such proposal must name the player who is the "real" winner. Other members of the grouping will be deemed losers, just like anyone else.

NOT RULES, BUT HOPEFULLY USEFUL NOTES...

Some territories (Hallion's March, Ravvening, Quime) have separate coasts, and it matters to a Fleet which one it's on. So this may need to be specified when moving, as ambiguous orders will fail. (These are like Spain, Bulgaria and St.Petersburg in standard Diplomacy).

Slennin, Tania, Adern Forest and Ursus can be passed-through by Fleets due to their waterways, and no coast specification is required for them. (These are like Kiel, Denmark, Sweden and Constantinople in standard Diplomacy).

The central Ayathgaron/Franchia/Keystone Mountains area is impassable, except via the indicated “Passes”. The passes are not separate territories, and armies move directly from the territory at one end to that at the other.

THE SETTING & THE NATIONS

Since the Time of Legend the lands of Cantaboria have never been completely united. In that Golden Age, when the ancient gods and their followers all lived in harmony, Peace reigned – but it was destroyed two millennia ago. Infamous human warlord Zark-Oh found new faith and made war upon the Elhadiz, gods he called 'Evil', in the cause of the Astridae, or 'Good' gods. This villain and his cohorts were finally defeated and banished across the ocean - but the damage was done. Heavenly Harmony was lost and the lands thereafter ravaged by unnatural plagues, undead hordes and unsane magics.

Throughout history since, Cantaboria has been a place of wars and petty nations struggling to survive. Some achieved a passing greatness but are now gone, or dwindled to sad remnants sunk in decadence and wickedness. Two such are the Empire of Ayathgaron and the Theocracy of Franchia.

Once, the armies of the Empire of Ayathgaron marched with ruthless efficiency to dominate half the known world. Their time is now long past, the 'empire' reduced to a heartland around the capital city Ayathgar. There effete and degenerate fops vie for social advantage, foolishly oblivious to the barbaric world beyond the city walls. Yet still their King-Emperor pretends to rulership of the provinces, demanding tributary fealty and sending regiments against whoever will not serve. The Theocracy of Franchia still holds theoretical spiritual supremacy over the lands, in the undying form of Pope-Hero Aesop the First. His pervasive priestly minions extract tithes from the people of all nations, whose rulers must use their best diplomacy to avoid Unholy Curses invoked at his whim.

The Legacy of Ayathgaron campaign is set in the legendary continent of Cantaboria, with Hepmona and Fireland to the north-west and north-east. Cantaboria is divided into many minor nations and tribal areas. Cantaboria itself lies in the southern hemisphere, so the southerly nations are colder and the northerly hotter. The temperature differences are more extreme to the west and milder to the east, due to prevailing winds and ocean currents. It is approximately 800 leagues east-west by 650 north-south. To the north-west is the subcontinent of Hepmonaland, called Amoricia by recent settlers from Capria, far to the east. Its north is covered with dense jungles and its south by hot dry plains. To the far north-east is Fireland, named New Cantaboria by the exiled Zark-Oh and divided into the kingdoms Cantabria, Khalkidia, Municipia and Griffildi. There the vast volcano Doom blots the sky with fume, blurring the sun into two and obscuring the minor moon. (For convenience, the land-masses are shown as closer than in the campaign world).

URSUS (GaryW) – Fur-clad barbarian warriors who range the snowy forests and tundra of the far south, guided by shamanic yogi, priests of a primitive bear totem cult. (Default Deity: Mafek, god of war).
ELSEA (TonyH) – Vestige of Necromon, a long dead empire, whose sorcerous nobility claim dark elvish descent and exhibit extraordinary cruelty in evidence of their bloodlines. (Default Deity: Hetadun, god of the dead).
ZOOBAR (MikeC) – From the jungles of Necrophylica emerge the tribesmen, conquering orcs and other foes with trampling elephants, frog-venomed darts and pitched-and-flaming war-pigs. (Default Deity: Gaiala, the wild goddess).
THEOCRACY OF MELAN (PeterW) – Duty impels the Paladin-Lords, elected by combat and the gods' will, to lead their holy legions in bringing true faith or the sword to all. (Default Deity: All Gods).
DALESMEN OF THE EAST (PeterT) – The Dalesmen prefer industrious mining, horse-trading, raiding and pillaging to war, and work well with their dwarf neighbours but distrust other non-humans. (Default Deity: Thrundar, the maker).
UNSEEN CONFEDERACY (PeterT [MikeW resigned]) – Seemingly benign union of Obscuran, Olebran and other states, in reality controlled covertly by cynical hedonistic wizards waging war! (Default Deity: Safieros, god of knowledge).
CANTABRIA (SteveB) – Feudal duchies and city-states, held as a united kingdom despite many foes by their King's iron will, elf aid, waning magic and unshakable faith in the goddess' goodness. (Default Deity: Notret, goddess of disease).
KHALKIDIA/NEW ADERN (JamesW) – Exiled from their native forest by a zombie plague, the Aderni elves found new northern lands most favourable to their kind, despite orc hordes and dragonfire. (Default Deity: No Gods).
THE TOUV (ChrisG) – Natives of Hepmonaland, the Touv are dark-skinned, proud but egalitarian; Princes of these nations must earn their people's respect with wisdom, courage and skill. (Default Deity: Ilmethir, goddess of peace).
SCARLET BROTHERHOOD (AlexT) – Pale ascetic assassins, ruthlessly ruling minions of lesser race by fear and favour in order to re-establish the long-fallen empire of their Sueloise ancestors. (Default Deity: Lanrakus, god of moonlight).
