About this game

As the ruler of a province in the Western Peninsula, it will be expected of you to hold court and make yourself available to petitioners, settling disputes and delivering justice to the land and its inhabitants.

The War for the West is a grimdark 485,000 word interactive medieval fantasy novel by Lucas Zaper.

Among your duties will be to administer the money collected from taxes and see that it is well spent, be it in improvements to the local infrastructure or in purchasing personal objects and services. You will also need to manage your relationship with other powers and arrange a proper suitor for marriage, which will serve both to ensure the continuation of your lineage and consolidate your alliances.

But even if diplomacy fails, the military will always be at your command, ready to suppress rebellions and defend your fief against foreign invaders. To guarantee their supremacy in the field of battle, you must keep a steady flow of recruitment and enforce constant training.

Alas, not all problems can be dealt with by soft words and sharp blades. In such circumstances, one may find that there is little a few drops of poison or a well-placed agent cannot solve.

This all may appear overwhelming at first, but you will count with the assistance of your counselors, each with their own specialties. Their advice will prove invaluable as you navigate through the dangerous dynamics of the realm’s politics.

If you can keep their treachery in check, that is.

* Play as a Lord or a Lady, and find pleasure wherever you see fit.
* Fight in the open field, withstand a siege, join your enemy or avoid conflict entirely.
* Marry for love, power, or convenience, and use lovers to settle your lust if necessary.
* Bow to the church or defy it by joining the northern heresy or making your own religion.
* Uncover the secrets of your lineage and the ancient mysteries of the world, as well as many hidden endings.
* Make allies and enemies as you visit neighboring provinces and interact with other nobles.
* Decide over a vast number of random events that might happen as you hold court.
* Build your army and test it in battle against your enemies.

One of my absolute favorite choice games. It has a massive degree of replayability and quite a few endings. It also has a very well developed management system which actually shows results. How you build your character and nation can alter things, including choosing a wife. Alliances can be made, battles fought, etc. Very good. Fully worth the money and I can't wait until the next one.

It's a good game with many choices to make. It even gives you the option to cheat or manipulate your stats (money, morale, even your people's disposition) if you want. It just requires you pay for the full game after two months pass in the game. This is why I give it four stars. If I could play the full game definitely five stars. EDIT / I bought full version awhile back now so its 5 stars and a whole lots of fun. Advice to players don't give in to terrorists, cultists, or crazy people.

So far I love the game! Many great ways to go about it. Only one complaint and one bug: I find that although you can attend court, their is not much extracurricular activities to do after you finish the first few options, which was a little disappointing. The bug which I just ran into not to long ago is during the religion creation it gives you the option to go back and pick your choices again. Bad part about it is that some of the previous choices disappear. A bug fix for that would be awesome
