Solium Infernum: Rectification Rules Addendum

Solium Infernum: Rectification is a free mini expansion pack that brings new rules, mechanics and play elements to the game that pits you as an Archfiend with the ambition of ruling Hell. 

Installation:  First download the installation .zip file. You then install the mini expansion pack by unzipping the contents and overwriting the three files AIScripts.cxt, MainIFace.cxt and GameEngine.cxt in the Solium Infernum game directory which is usually Program Files\Cryptic Comet\Solium Infernum.  

You must also overwrite the data folder called “GameData” which is also located at Program Files\Cryptic Comet\Solium Infernum.  If the install has been completed correctly you will see that “ v. 1.08” is displayed on the bottom left corner of the main menu screen.

IMPORTANT: It seems that windows 7 often creates another install location in AppData.  If you are copying over the 3 files and the GameData folder to the Program Files location but the version on the game is still not going to 1.07 Beta then you will need to update the files and folder in the AppData location.  The easiest way to find this is to do a search for MainIFace.cxt and note the AppData location if it is returned.

General Improvements:

  • Prompt for unused order slots
  • Prompt for insufficient tribute allocated when creating orders
  • Simple Auto Sort of manuscripts via mouse right click on tray
  • New Map Theme: Infernal Divide (map is divided by river in one direction and a chain of bottomless chasms in the other and then filled in with terrain)
  • Numerous Bug Fixes

General New Rule – Framing For Excommunication:
If a player attempts to frame another player for a ritual that will result in excommunication i.e. a ritual targeted against Pandemonium, then challenge results that end up in detection are followed not only by excommunication of the player attempting the frame but also prevention of that player from successfully framing the target ever again.  Should a player attempt to frame that same player again, he will receive a turn log message that the Infernal Conclave is not so easily fooled and the resources spent to attempt the framing will be lost.  The ritual itself is however not affected.

Optional Rule - Infernal Census:
There is a check box on start game menu adding a new rule that every 10 turns players (not excommunicated) are awarded 1 prestige point per Canton that they control.

How To Activate Rectification Expansion Content:
There is a Check box on the start game menu to include rectification content. The rectification content can only be accessed by creating a new game in any of the player modes i.e. single player, PBEM or hotseat.

New Content For Solium Infernum Rectification

monolithNew Rule: Excommunication Tribute
If a player is excommunicated, any time that he requests tribute, there is a chance that the tribute will not be delivered. The chance is 50% minus 5% for each level the Archfiend has achieved in the Diabolism discipline (power). Membership in the Infernal Conclave conveys certain advantages after all and the timely delivery of tribute is one of them.

Lava Fields Terrain
Any legion defending in a Lava Field canton gets a +1/2/3 bonus (depending on the legions level) in a random challenge phase during the battle i.e. Ranged, Melee or Infernal. The bonus appears like a Combat Card bonus.

New Diplomatic Option: Assertion of Weakness
Use this action to lodge an Assertion of Weakness against your opponent in front of the Infernal Conclave. You will be required to wager prestige and designate a canton that you will seize from your opponent and hold for a certain number of turns. The prestige amount and the number of turns that you must hold the canton are based on your difference in Infernal Rank with the minimum number of turns being 3. Your opponent must reclaim the canton or lose it and prestige equal to that which you wagered. If you keep the canton until the end of the designated turn then you gain it and the prestige your opponent lost.

Prerequisite: You must have forced your target opponent to have accepted at least one insult before this option will appear. A Vendetta or a claim of an Assertion of Weakness between you and the target resets the existing Insult requirement. 
NOTE:
Your option to assert weakness will not appear immediately.  You must wait the same amount of turns as you would to hurl another insult.  The waiting period is based on your difference if any in ranks.

Note for Asserter: The canton is selected by left clicking on the map when prompted.  You can only choose cantons that are ADJACENT to your territory and NOT occupied by a legion or place of power.

Note for Asserter: You must occupy the canton immediately on the turn following your assertion or you will fail in the Assertion of Weakness.  Once the first turn of occupation is complete and control has been established then you may leave the canton but you must keep control of the canton until the end of the turn limit or you will fail in the Assertion of Weakness.  Failure happens if at the end of any game turn before the end of the turn limit, you do not control the canton.

Note for Asserter:You may not move into any other cantons controlled by the target of your Assertion of Weakness.  You may not use any rituals against targets that you would not otherwise be able to use if your diplomatic stance with that target was neutral.

Note for Player Defending against the Assertion:You may not move into any cantons controlled by the player who has made the Assertion of Weakness against you OTHER than the Canton occupied or now controlled by the asserter.  You may not use any rituals against targets that you would not otherwise be able to use if your diplomatic stance with that target was neutral EXCEPT for the targeting of a legion in the occupied canton. i.e. you MAY use Destruction rituals against any legion occupying the canton that is the object of the Assertion of Weakness.

New Manuscripts:

Curses — Curses are acquired by possessing new Unholy Relics (and some Praetors). The Relics have special abilities that are triggered by game situations that yield the possibility of a curse manuscript being created for your use. If the condition triggers the creation of a manuscript, you will receive a turn log message and the manuscript will appear in your tribute tray. There are 5 curses that can be invoked.
Note:  In order for the special ability of a praetor or relic to trigger and provide the generation of a curse manuscript, the praetor or relic cannot be in the player’s vault.  A relic CAN be in a ritual chamber slot to be active for curse manuscript generation.

Curse of Wrath
Prestige Loss: Target legion’s level
Duration:  Level Invoker has achieved in Wrath Discipline (min 3)
There is a chance of receiving a manuscript any time there is a battle involving a legion in hell. The curse targets opponent’s legion (randomly chosen NOT a personal guard) and drains prestige points every turn for a set duration. Cursed legions have their total combat attributes (i.e. including praetors and artifacts) halved and cannot use any special abilities including those from attachments like Praetors or Artifacts.

Curse of Deceit
Prestige Loss: Target’s level
Duration:  Level Invoker has achieved in Deceit Discipline (min 3)
There is a chance of receiving a manuscript any time any player performs a deceit ritual. The curse targets opponent’s praetors, artifacts and relics (randomly chosen) and drains prestige points every turn for a set duration.  Cursed praetors, artifacts and relics are not able to use or contribute their special abilities until the curse is lifted.  This includes special combat moves for praetors.  During single combat a cursed praetor will use a “Pass” combat move instead of a special combat move if the orders have already been given and the praetor is subsequently cursed.

Curse of Prophecy 
Prestige Loss: Target Place of Power’s level
Duration:  Level Invoker has achieved in Prophecy Discipline (min 3)
There is a chance of receiving a manuscript any time any player performs a prophecy ritual. The curse targets opponent’s Places of Power (randomly chosen but NOT strongholds) and drains prestige points every turn for a set duration. Cursed Places of Power have their total combat attributes (i.e. including praetors and relics) halved and cannot use any special abilities including those from attachments like Praetors or Artifacts.

Curse of Destruction 
Prestige Loss: Level Invoker has achieved in Destruction Discipline  x3 (min 9 points)
There is a chance of receiving a manuscript any time any player performs a destruction ritual. Curse targets opponent directly and immediately forces the loss of prestige points.

Curse of Diabolism 
Prestige Loss: Half the level Invoker has achieved in Diabolism Discipline (min 2 points)
Duration:  Level Invoker has achieved in Diabolism Discipline (min 3)
There is a chance of receiving a manuscript any time any player requests tribute. Curse targets opponent directly and drains prestige points from player any time he requests tribute for a set duration.

New Rituals used via Unholy Relics

SIHell Sculpt Ritual
Select a valid target Canton that does not contain a legion or Place of Power and change the terrain type to a different terrain type.  The controlling player may only use this ritual once every 5 turns.

Options include:
Build Bridge – must select valid river hex
Destroy Bridge – must select valid bridge hex
Raise Mountains – must select Infernal Plains
Create Swamp – must select Infernal Plains
Create Infernal Plains – must select Mountain, Swamp or Lava Flow
Create Lava Flow – must select Infernal Plains

Shadow Binding Ritual
Select a legion controlled by any opponent regardless of diplomatic stance (perforned as a deceit ritual) and if the challenge roll is successful, temporarily remove all special abilities and attachment bonuses for a set number of turns.

Summon The Devourer
Select a canton that you control that does not contain a legion or place of power and summon “The Devourer.”  The Devourer requires upkeep every turn but has a special ability that drains prestige from all opponents (except those who are excommunicated or in a Blood Vassal/Lord relationship with the controlling player).  In addition another special ability gives The Devourer a chance to destroy Places of Power (except for Pandemonium) that lose a battle against it i.e. hit points for the Place of Power are reduced to 0.  The Devourer however must survive the battle in order for it to have a chance to devour the Place of Power. While it is summoned, The Devourer does NOT count towards the controlling Archfiend’s legion Command Rating limit.  If The Devourer is ever destroyed it CANNOT be summoned again.  The Devourer heals all hit point losses between summoning.  Attachments (except combat cards) placed on The Devourer are returned to the vault if The Devourer has left the game board because upkeep was not paid. Attachments placed on The Devourer are permanently lost if The Devourer is destroyed.
