EraTohoK is the name.
It's text based as you can see, but it isn't boring if you like strategy.
If you don't want to read the rest, your loss.
From the start you have the settings.
-READING THE GAME HELP TAB FIRST
--War Phase Settings--
-Making sure "Officers captured in battle" is set to Decide manually, same for defeated countries
-AI can execute prisoners set to No
-Chance of death when losing a battle set to "Zero"
-Non-generics can die in battle probably set to no
-Target of diplomatic X demands set to whatever
and everything between to your choosing
-For a first start, Normal is a good place to start, but change it to EASY since you'll be screwing around with stuff before you understand the game to get to something something along the lines of pic related
all to your preference.
Special faction shit to No or close to No as possible.
Everything else is to preference.
Go to Lewd and turn off Millionaire. There, saved you a few burst blood vessels.
Disable Houseboat since it's a shitshow (reputation).
Moneylender fucks you either way. Disable.
If you can't into moonrunes, disable.
Some shit like Bitch's Life is stat dependent, as is with a majority of the game's mechanics.
Anything goes. The bodyguards will show up every so often depending on the Event multipliers and max amounts so you can choose what to do with them.
Merc. Visit isn't worth it in late game. By then, you should have already worked on investing in territories and being on everyone's good side. Disable once you've cornered everyone(explained later)
To your preference. Personally, I only have Rehab Doc (again later), Outside Doc, Motivational Trainer(To remove the lazy stat after any character acquires it) and Training Together.
Officer Demanded, you can set this to off. If you don't send it to a stronger power, they'll hate you and that's one thing you don't want to deal with.
You can turn off Money Demand as well.
the only ones I have active are Bandit: Suppression, Execution, Raid, Pillaging, Prisoner Release. and Succubus: Battle (If you win, 1k extra soldiers through a certain option) Influence (random on any character[female]), Sabbath (never saw this), and Festival (when faced, ignore it- more soldiers)
You can disable Assassination Proposal and Random Rebellion on your first round. Those two you can re-enable once you've completed one run.
Up to 10x and max event amount of 10.
If you're ballsy, you'll set everything to 10. That's unwise though. If you set RNG on a fresh load to enabled, you're not getting the same thing twice I assume.
This is where you can enable or disable interactions for certain characters. I suggest you (once at that point) disable any interactions with characters that might be hot and bothered in the events following the visiting phase.
For a free 50k (only works once per run), set everything to off, enable the multipliers to 10 and make sure the Gap Pact is enabled
Go about this as you please.
Everything else is basic game shit. Check it out, but don't change anything until you're at least halfway through. Make a save before doing or changing anything.
Now, for the game itself. You can do just about any scenario, but say you're going to do the Gensokyo War, here are some things to do if you're a beginner.
Bandit on 0
Hobgoblin on 0
Tentacle to 0 (I haven't ever used it since you can gain access later in the game through some events)
Succubus (mostly harmless*) to 0
Outsider ~3 max if you're a hardass. But be warned, if you're... possessive, they will break you and cost you hours. Smash them quickly. They always spawn at the Hakurei boarder. (One thing to mention, if you haven't already read the game help- They force you to be weaker so you might want to set that to 1 to test the waters. The effect is greater with every level)
Vigilante to 0 (1 again to test the waters)
Cultist to 1 or 0
*they will fuck you up if left unchecked
About Rehab Doctor, you can break characters, or turn them to your side in a single turn if done correctly. (You need to enable the opiate option in content settings)
Go about the game as you see fit, but keep in mind that this is moreso a text-based game. It has images, but they're just portraits. Your character stats are important, and what you do will effect your character, so don't go doing things mindlessly, unless pic related. The game is strategy based, and it can take time.
You should focus on subverting others, lending treasury money in the diplomacy tab on the left on the map stage, and keeping yourself out of their cross hairs, which should be piss easy even on Normal Difficulty. Once you've done that, focus on cornering everyone into areas and keeping them barricaded with your forces.
