Need ideas for game development

Permanent Linkby Bright on Thu Aug 10, 2017 5:03 pm

You're an evil overlord wanting to take over a fortified city.

You got an army of monsters at your disposal.

How do you go about taking over the city?

Forget the fortification! Go at them from below!
Experiment: Will a grenade kill a giant naga by exploding in its belly?
Test #1: Inconclusive. Grenade exploded in naga''s mouth.
Test #2: Inconclusive. Grenade exploded in naga's throat.
Further tests delayed until another live specimen can be acquired.

There's an inner city with a castle.
A middle city with tall walls.
And an outlying part of the city with poor people.

Offer the poor people money and privilege in exchange for sabotaging the city from within and providing intel. Honor that agreement afterwards and raise the poor people's economic status to keep their loyalty. And be sure to tunnel up into fortified cities from below, they never see that coming! Hit the castle and barracks areas first.

Assuming that the outer city could be breached via tunneling or rushing the gates, move into the outer city only and take over points of infrastructure. In advanced cities, this would be water and power, but this changes in less advanced cultures to things like coal depositories and grain storage. Next, position a few of your forces at all gates to the inner city, archers or snipers (based on tech level) on roofs and ground units under overhangs and in blind alleys to prevent return sniping. Now treat the populous well to prevent revolt and wait until the leaders have been starved out.

Get the metallic torches with armor hot enough to burn anyone who touches them from the outside without proper protection.

Does an evil overlord with an army of monsters really want to keep the populace alive? I don't know what kind of monsters your working with, but infiltrate the city with some shades, doppelgangers, slimes, winged things, or what have you. Identify key individuals and high ranking officers. In the middle of the night perform a mass assassination of priority targets, while disabling defenses. Sweep in with army and revel in the chaos.
