1. Introduction

  What is Chaos Overlords?
  
   Chaos Overlords is a strategic game of futuristic gang combat. It was
   developed by Stick Man Games and released in May 1996 by New World
   Computing for the Macintosh and Windows 95 platforms.
   
   The setting is a grim cyberpunk city of the year 2050 divided into an
   8x8 grid of 64 sectors. Six human and/or computer-controlled AI
   overlords attempt to gain control over the mostly-lawless city, sector
   by sector, with some variation depending on the game's scenario
   objectives.
   
   You start the game employing a single gang and in control of a single
   sector. Your initial gang, The Right Hands, is a band so loyal that

   you don't even have to pay them any upkeep. With them you can start to
   influence local businesses, gain control of nearby city sectors,
   research new tech, deck them out in power armor and assault rifles, or
   just send them off to cause chaos, extorting money from the local
   population. By expanding your small empire across the city you raise
   funds to hire more gangs, buy better weapons and armor, protect your
   turf, and annihilate the opposition.
   
   Chaos Overlords (so named from the financial need for gangs to extort
   funds by wreaking chaos) is a turn-based game. Some have suggested
   that the types of gangs are reminiscent of the Steve Jackson
   'Illuminatus' card game, with game mechanics similar to that of a card
   game like Magic (with upkeep, command, execution, and hire phases, and
   with random gang hiring every turn that is similar to drawing a new
   card). Though it's a turn-based combat game, don't expect a cyberpunk
   X-Com or Jagged Alliance here: combat is resolved statistically, with
   silhouette mannequins duking it out noisily with ranged weapons, melee
   weapons, or martial arts to illustrate the attack and defense results.
   
  Overview of gangs, sites, and items
  
   The gangs you hire are similar to the 'agents' in Simisle by Maxis:
   the gangs are the foundation of the game. All goals are achieved
   directly by using them, and the success or failure of any task depends
   on the gang's abilities and their surroundings. There are 90 different
   gangs in the game. (The box and documentation mention 70+; a total of
   90 gangs were added after printing the documentation.)
   
   Three different gangs are available for hire each turn. At your
   discretion you can turn down one of the three gangs or hire one.
   During the subsequent turn a new gang will take the hired/snubbed
   gang's place, so three distinct gang choices will always be available.
   Gangs are not unique, however, and you may end up hiring multiple
   instances of the same gang or fighting an enemy gang that is identical
   in basic stats to one of your own. You are limited to simultaneously
   employing a maximum of 80 gangs.
   
   Sites are organized into clusters of three buildings in each sector,
   each with some strategic value. Want a head start on research? Take
   command of a city sector with a research lab, send in heavy iron to
   elicit a cooperative attitude from the lab personnel, then send in Rig
   Masters or Trantian Fusers to start cranking out Monom (monofiliment)
   Rods or Rocket Launchers. Need cash? Those Corporate Raiders of yours
   can influence a local casino for that much-needed protection money, or
   influence a local hospital to give a healing boost for recuperating
   gang members. There are 24 different types of sites, each with varying
   modifications to the tolerance towards or abilities of your gang
   members. These sites automatically affect gangs in their sector once
   they have been influenced. Since there are 192 randomly-distributed
   sites in a game, multiple occurrences of all buildings show up across
   the map.

   
   Fifty-three different items are available (or researchable) to equip
   your gangs and give them a chance for survival. These are split into
   11 different technology levels, from 0 (the most basic of items, like
   a metal pipe or pair of sound-dampening sneakers) up through level 10
   (such as a plasma generator or mechanized battle suit). Each of your
   gangs has a limit to the technology level they can use; the Mutant
   Thugs will have a fine time with a tech 3 Shotgun, but they just won't
   be able to figure out a tech 9 Phaze Handgun. Once researched, items
   can be purchased/fabricated and equipped amongst your gangs without
   additional research.
   
  Chaos Overlords demo and v1.1 patch
  
   A demo of Chaos Overlords is available on NWC's web site with 8-bit
   graphics for PC (6.2MB) and Mac (4.4MB), or 16-bit graphics for PC
   (7MB) and Mac (6.2BM).
   
   A demo was also available with the included CD of several PC game
   magazines, including a mid-1996 issue of PC Gamer. Apparently the
   demo's documentation was inadvertently omitted. Check
   http://www.3do.com/nwcomputing/faq/chaosdem.zip for the missing
   information.
   
   In late July, 1996, a version 1.1 patch (more of an upgrade with new
   features, really) was released for the Windows 95 version (185k) as
   well as the Mac version (1.6MB). Changes include minor bug fixes as
   well as a site map overview feature, the ability to continue looking
   at the console gang/site/etc. displays after submitting your turn in
   multiplayer games, more hot-spots in the attack, equip, give, and
   other panels to immediately get info on items and gangs, and access to
   enemy gang stats by double-clicking on them.

2. Multiplayer notes

  General
  
   There is a $15 offer for an additional Chaos Overlords CD, available
   to all registered CO users. Information on the offer posted by
   gruof@pacificnet.com to Usenet is here.
   
   In a multiplayer game the game host's files are the only ones used to
   actually calculate results. The client data files are used for
   displaying information locally. If you start mucking about with the
   data files and give Parking Lots a +255 defense, it will only affect
   the actual gameplay if the change is on the host, and the host data
   file changes will not be visible to other players unless their data

   files reflect the same modifications. This might be potentially abused
   by a host that makes obscure changes that aren't immediately evident.
   A checksum or CRC of host vs. client files might be beneficial if
   abuse occurs.
   
  Modem connections
  
   PC-to-PC modem connections seem to be quite stable. Please report any
   problems if they are notable.
   
  TCP/IP connections
  
   TCP/IP connections work well even hosted over a 28.8k connection.
   There is some slowdown with a large number of players, but the speed
   is still fairly satisfying.
   
   Sources for TCP/IP Chaos Overlords opponents include:
   
     * the web site http://www.wizweb.com/arena/chaosOverlords/
       (recommended)
     * notices on the Usenet newsgroups comp.sys.ibm.pc.games.strategic
       and comp.sys.mac.games.strategic
     * the Chaos Overlords IRC channels: #chaosoverlords (undernet) or
       #chaos_overlords (dalnet). There are good places to go after
       you're so rudly disconnected at the game end--what fun is it if
       you can't gloat about your CO victory, or if you can't harrass the
       game winner?
       
  Direct serial connections
  
   No reported comments so far.
   
  PC/Mac interoperability
  
   NWC says that the Windows 95 and Macintosh versions of CO will work
   together. It reportedly works well with TCP/IP connections between the
   two platforms, but currently there are no reports of success or
   failure with direct serial or modem connections between PCs and Macs.
     _________________________________________________________________
   
3. Game elements

  Research
  
   There is no research tree. Any gang with a sufficient tech level can
   research any item (with varying speeds, depending on what sites in
   that sector have been influenced, and what miscellaneous items are
   equipped, such as a Science Kit). Research is cumulative, and having
   more than one gang research an item gives faster results. If you stop
   researching and then carry on with the same research topic later, the
   prior research points will carry over when research is resumed with
   the same or a different gang.
   
   Research success rolls used in excess of what is required for a topic
   are wasted. For example, if Computer Hackers (Res 3) with a Science
   Kit (Res 5) are at a Science Lab (Res 5) work on a Kevlar Vest (RC 2)
   and gets 3 successes, the excess successful research roll is wasted.
   Matching research topics efficiently with researcher skills (when
   possible) is somewhat important due to this.
   
  Combat
  
   Force has an effect on combat. If you've repeatedly seen high-defense
   gangs (say, defense 13) getting dinked by weaponless enemies (combat
   5, for example), force is the reason. The formula in the manual
   implies that a defender's modified defense higher than an attacker's
   modified combat will be immune to injury. The formula (p.51) should
   read:
   
     Attack Roll = (Gang's Combat + Gang's Force) - Defender's Defense
     
   An attack will only have a 0% chance of effectiveness if the attack
   roll as shown above turns out zero or less. Force has no direct effect

   on defensive adjustments, only as a combat adjustment.
   
   Since all attacks occur simultaneously, retaliatory attacks are
   calculated using the stats in effect at the beginning of the combat
   round (including the initial force of a retaliatory attacker--that's
   what the upper force bar displays during combat). Your Ground Zero
   gang equipped with Reaction Leather and Phaze Handgun (com 23, force
   10, def 13) may have wiped the weaponless Psychos from 10 to 0 force
   on an initial attack, but the doomed Psychos (com 5, force 10)
   simultaneously retaliate with a minor chance to wound Ground Zero
   ((5+10)-13=2 chances of 33.3% to do one force damage each to Ground
   Zero).
   
  AI and difficulty level
  
   The computer has 2 different strategies. On Goon, Criminal, or Crime
   Lord it tries to win. On Homocidal Maniac it tries to keep you from
   winning... usually by killing you. :) The higher difficulties do make
   the computer more aggresive so it might attack you more often than
   just passing through your sectors [gruof@pacificnet.com]
   
   The computer will never gang up on the player (except maybe in
   Homicidal Maniac). The computer basically scouts all of the other
   player to find any weak spots. The AI does NOT cheat. We were very
   adamant about making sure that the AI played fairly. [...] [re: AIs
   grabbing gang-less sectors] If you keep people in your sectors, it
   should make it more difficult for the computer to take. If you saw an
   unoccupied sector sitting there, wouldn't you take it?

4. Strategies

  Starting strategies
  
   Adam K. Rixey (nyarl+@andrew.cmu.edu):
   
     * When you start out, try and get a few casinos as early as
       possible. I was having money problems the first few times I
       played, but casinos generate a lot of cash (6 per turn). Also buy
       a few mostly useless groups with 0 or 1 upkeep (like the clowns or
       the smiley-face dudes) to just chaos each turn while your better
       gangs do important things like taking over sectors and
       researching. These guys also make good scouts and bait...
     * As soon as you see a Research Center or something similar, take it
       and station at least two people there to research equipment. You
       want the big guns as soon as possible (just make sure you have
       gangs that can use them...). If you can get something like a
       shotgun in the first four or five rounds and give it to a
       relatively cheap but good gang, you're sitting pretty.
     * Try to keep at least one martial arts gang in your queue so that
       if you need quick reinforcements you can hire them and they can
       put up a good fight right away without equipment.
       
  General strategies
  
   Don't forget that Bankers, Computer Hackers, and Forgers have negative
   upkeep. That is, they earn you money every turn. Of course,
   accompanying them are rather stiff hiring fees, so they might be
   difficult to hire too many of them near the beginning of the game.

   
   Tim Jordan (lordgek@best.com):
   
     * Hospitals and Temples are key: Once you control one of these
       puppies it is much easier to bring new recruits to full power at
       them and their added support makes them that much harder to steal
       away from you (assuming of course you always leave someone there).
     * Chaos 'til the cows come home: Money is key in this game and
       although Casinos and Office Towers can make you big money, most
       average gangs chaosing can make about 5 bucks easy. The trouble
       starts when you really try to squeeze a sector for all its worth
       with multiple folk since you really start pushing the envelope at
       this point, but if you've got a gang with nothing incredibly
       important to do besides guarding a square, chaos away!
     * Detection and stealth are not to be underestimated: This may have
       been obvious to everyone else from the start but I just realized
       its bigger ramifications in combat recently. Quite simply put, if
       your stealth is greater than the best enemy is the sector's
       detection (allowing, of course, the modifiers for multiple groups
       they may have there) you cannot be attacked. Since the attacker
       usually has such a big advantage, this allows you to totally
       choose your attacks or simply go about business as normal
       (influencing, chaos, equipping, etc.) since they can't interfere
       with you. This factor really comes into play when choosing armor
       and weapons to equip since stealth can easily be shot to hell by
       these devices. If you have sneaky folk you want to stay that way
       (like your Right Hand Men in an Elimination game) consider sites
       with back ally networks and quiet equipment. This also means that
       scanners are pretty damned useful too, how many times have you had
       a gang pummeled in a supposedly "empty" square?
     * Set up research centers: Maybe this is too much a "Putting all of
       one's eggs in one basket", I find that having my scientist,
       hackers, and other brain types hanging in a site with a research
       center and all equipped with science kits allows me to knock even
       the biggest projects out in a few turns and gain a huge
       technological boost on the competition. Since the first five tech
       levels can be done anywhere if your gang is technologically
       advanced enough, these centers should put their emphasis on the
       6-10 tech items. As long as they're out of trouble and not Weight
       Lifters, its often easiest to have the low tech gangs do their own
       research.
       
   George Ruof (gruof@pacificnet.net):
   
     * Snitching: Get someone with a really high stealth and go snitch to
       make police crackdowns. It's a lot easier to control sectors after
       the police wipe everyone out of them.
     * Factories: 30% off on equipment can help a lot. I usually hire
       gangs to the hospital sector, heal them, then move them to the
       factory sector to get equipped. After that they're ready to go on
       a killing spree.

     * Research centers: This is the only way to get high tech items. If
       you get some gangs with high research numbers and give them
       science kits you can gain a great advantage quickly. Hopefully
       you'll also be lucky and get good gangs.
       
   Drew Fudenberg (fudenberg@husc.harvard.edu):
   
     * Remember that the agent's force is added in to most calculations,
       so agents who are fully healed are the most effective. For this
       reason the first thing I research is usually a med kit- I give it
       to the researcher and have him heal before he researches further.
       When I can afford high-tech agents I upgrade to the body
       stabilizer for those who can use it. Yes, hospitals and clinics
       can be a substitute, but they don't seem to be that densely
       scattered, and it wastes a lot of time to trek back to them.
     * If it looks a sector will need to maintain a sizable garrison,
       uses bribes to get the tolerance up so you can have several agents
       chaos at once.
     * One fun high-tech combination is invisio cloak plus empathic
       enhancer.
       
  Specific scenario strategies:
  
    Big Man
    
     * Tim Jordan (lordgek@best.com): While I still have a tough time
       with this one even on just criminal level AI, I've found the key
       to life is to grab one of the center squares ASAP! Move your first
       gang there right off the bat, don't rest until one is yours! Also,
       if in one of those lucky situations where you have a choice of
       equally distant center squares to go for, shoot for one with some
       sort of healing (hospital, temple, clinic)! Since a great deal of
       this game will be spent just defending your one spot, the extra
       healing and support to thwart overthrows is invaluable!

6. Gang comparison

   Here are some upper limits and analysis for the gangs, including the
   maximal blade/melee, ranged, fighting, and martial arts stats you can
   achieve for each gang.

7. Player-suggested enhancements (paraphrased or quoted from Usenet)

   Add visible name/stats to enemy gangs in order to make rational combat
   choices. [rwebb@panix.com]
   
   Add site icons to city map even when uninfluenced to give a more
   strategic perspective to the game instead of RSI-inducing building
   hunts. [rwebb@panix.com]
   
   Let players customize their "decks" by tweaking the relative
   frequencies of various gangs. [fudenberg@fas.harvard.edu]
   
   Add "subways"- this would be a new action (other than "move"); it
   would require a second, simpler map of subway connections. Possibly
   make the stations "sites" that have to be controlled before they can
   be used. [fudenberg@fas.harvard.edu]
   
   Add some vital overview screens. It would be nice to see all the gangs
   that are working for me. It would be nice to see all the sites I
   control. It would be nice to see what techs are available and/or which
   ones remain to be researched. [kagass@primenet.com]
   
   Add ability to toggle other startup options. It has 12 scenarious with
   different goals, but it would be neat to do something like "I want to
   play 'Greed' but give everybody 50 starting cash and an extra gang" or
   something. [nyarl+@andrew.cmu.edu]
   
   When I'm buying equipment, I'd like to see the stats for the gang I'm
   buying it for at the same time. [nyarl+@andrew.cmu.edu]
   
   Add more higher-level summary to give you a better overview of your
   gangs and sites. [bfrohock@sky.net]

   
   After I finish my turn in a network game I have to sit and wait with a
   "please wait" screen until everyone else finishes their turns. This is
   really annoying. It would MUCH better if I could continue to browse
   through my sectors and look at stats and stuff. I don't want to use a
   time limit and I hate waiting at that screen. [ostfeld@intac.com]
   
   It would've been nice if this game had some kind of diplomacy to it.
   Like if I could talk to the other overlords and maybe find out why
   they're all beating the crap out of me. [ostfeld@intac.com]
