Nuclear Weapons

Nuclear Weapons, easily the most frightening weapon in modern warfare. Within Novos Mundos all entities have the ability to develop nuclear weapons. Use of these weapons is however restricted to staff approval. To represent the difficulty and inherent dangers of nuclear research, the following system has been developed and implemented.

  1. Any player can order nuclear research in a given month using the regular order form. Nuclear research costs 10 points for every attempt.
  2. On the first of each month, the staff will roll on the success or failure of the attempted development.
    A player who gets a 1 will have to write out a catastrophic failure resulting in a nuclear accident affecting the surrounding Area. The player cannot attempt research again for 6 months.
    A player who gets a number between between 2 and 50 will have failed the roll and can try again next month.
    A player who gets a number between 51 and 90 will also have failed the roll and can try again next month, however the 10 points are refunded.
    A player who gets a number between 91 and 100 will have succeeded in developing nuclear weapons.

Nuclear knowledge can not be traded with other players
