Equestria has fallen. Queen Chrysalis's victorious army has divided the nation into protectorates with one goal - extraction of Love for the Flag of Changeling Lands Changeling Lands. Formerly a bureaucrat in Chrysalis's general staff, the newly appointed Lady Protectress Lilac finds herself in charge of Equestria's prosperous, populated east coast - the Manehattan Protectorate. Already, resistance grows as war becomes insurgency.

Can Lilac meet the dictates of the Queen? Can she build up her own power base in a nation that hates her? Can the resistance be crushed, or will the protectorate be immersed in chaos? Only time will tell...

Lore

The Occupation

During the Great War, Manehattan and its satellites, Hayston and Bronclyn, constituted a quarter of Equestria's industrial capacity. Today, as Equestria lies beneath the Changeling jackboot, and as their new Protectorates rise from the ashes, the Lady Protectress watches over her demesne with a hawk's eye.

Manehattan was brought low by the War, but Queen Chrysalis has no doubt that the city will soon reclaim what had been lost, rise again, and be remade into a glittering metropolis of the Hegemony - and more importantly an efficient industrial source of Love.

The Resistance

However, the ponies of the east coast have their own desires. Encompassing not only Fillydelphia and Albion, but also a stretch of inland territory reaching Hollow Shades in the west and bordering Flag of Stalliongrad Severyana in the north, the Changeling garrison is woefully understrength for the task of pacifying the entirety of the East Coast.

All over the Protectorate, the Harmonic Resistance plots to overthrow the Changeling occupiers, to restore the ideals of freedom and liberty to the ponies. The Princesses and Mane Six may be gone, but even absent, the Magic of Friendship continues to be felt, as talented unicorns and former comrades of Twilight Sparkle, Starlight Glimmer and Trixie Lulamoon, take up the fight.

Starting Situation

Starting borders of the Manehattan Protectorate.
Starting borders of the Manehattan Protectorate if the Changeling Lands had capitulated Flag of Stalliongrad Stalliongrad and decided to form the Severyana Protectorate before the Manehattan Protectorate.

The Manehattan Protectorate can be formed once Manehattan and some of its states are occupied by the Changeling Lands. Its territory and industry will vary depending on what year it is formed and its development during the great war.

Military

The protectorate starts with 22 divisions. However, there are only 48k changelings deployed, with none in reserve. Most divisions are extremely weak garrisons consisting of just 1 batallion each, with only three of them being standard infantry divisions, and two of them motorized.

Fortunately, these divisions should be more than enough if the resistance is properly handled.

Threats and Opportunities

As a mid-game country and a puppet, the Manehattan Protectorate is under the protection of the Flag of Changeling Lands Changeling Lands, but is expected to pay taxes in return.

Typically, the Changeling Lands will have completely or nearly conquered Equus with no serious threats remaining. The only threat to the Manehattan Protectorate is its own domestic policy failure, leading to the emergence of the Flag of Equestrian Liberation Front Equestrian Liberation Front with the possible support of Flag of Commonwealth of New Mareland New Mareland. In the late game, the Protectorate may be called upon to support a war with a consolidated power in Griffonia such as the Flag of Griffonian Empire Griffonian Empire or a united River Federation.

Gameplay Mechanics

Establishing the Protectorate

To form the Protectorate, a decision will need to be taken as the Flag of Changeling Lands Changeling Lands.

To activate it, they must have capitulated Equestria, control Canterlot, and at least one state on Equestria's east coast (this includes the strategic air regions Celestial Coast, North Celestial Coast, Saint Petershoof, and Starswirl Valley). The Flag of Equestrian Liberation Front Equestrian Liberation Front cannot have been formed yet.

The decision costs 22k ponypower and 50 PP, and takes 70 days. The player will then be given a choice between switching, to take control of the Protectorate themselves, or remain as the Changeling Lands. Manually tag switching is ill-advised, as certain essential mechanics will not be enabled this way.

The Love Tax

The collection, provision and usage of love is essential to the Protectorate. Tax is collected from pacified states by divisions. To do this states must be kept pacified and a group of low ponypower divisions should be kept available.

After collection, Love is measured in Erots. Before they are taxed, Erots can also be spent on the local changeling population

Love Tax mechanics begin after taking the Negotiate the Love Tax focus.

The mechanics are mostly controlled through decisions:

Spoilers below, we recommend these are best experienced in game before reading

The Love Tax mechanics after Negotiate the Love Tax focus:

  • Fulfill Love Tax Quotas - can be paid every 200 days to the Queen. This decision will give some boosts, and avoid making Chrysalis angry (which will result in debuffs). Paying taxes will use approximately 2/3 of Love production.
  • Love Rations - By spending Love, the Protectorate can boost a variety of stats, which will be added later while going through the focus tree. This decision is repeatable.

And Military Love Requisition is available after All's Fair in Love & War focus:

  • One-time decision to hire the Griffon Accountants - makes taxes a bit more effective (example: it is possible to gather 2.53 erots of Love - without this decision gains only 2.5, meaning increased efficiency)
  • Love Requisition Operations - Temporary stability, political power and command power decrease for Love gain - repeatable.
  • Punitive Harvesting Operations - base stability and Love in exchange for a large temporary stability decrease and a small ponypower decrease - repeatable.

After completing the Pursue Urban Renewal focus, the following Special Project decisions become available:

  • Urban developments at: Fillidelphya, Albion, Bridlepolis, Stratusburg, Detrot and Prance. This decisions give some ponypower to provinces and the most important - upgrades the state region's category.
  • Further Urban Development in Bridlepolis, Stratusburg, Detrot and Prance.

State of Affairs decisions - shows (they are mostly affected by focuses and choices made in events):

  • 3 and final - phases of Strengthen Changeling Rules - Reduces the Garrison Shortcomings National Spirit effects, if final stage completed - removes it. Shows that the changelings can control the situation with army forces.
  • 2 - phases of Expand Collaborationist Presence - Reduces the Public Hostility National Spirit effects. Shows that, for one reason or another, the locals are willing to work with their changeling occupiers.
  • 3 and final - phases of Suppress the Resistance - Reduces the Resistance Subversion National Spirit effects, if final stage completed - removes it. Shows how big the Resistance influence on day-to-day operations.
  • Also contains decisions for completing the Resistance Suppression and Consolidation of Changeling Power phases (unlocked by events)
  • In the late game contains an option to reintegrate the "rebellious states" to get the cores on them back

Officers of the Ost-Kommando decisions (are unlocked after The New Blood focus):

  • Makes it possible to get five good generals: Kevin, Schaelli, Alyx, Forctis and Scile;
  • As Manehattan gains more generals, it can begin to promote them into government positions and later recruit them as politics advisors, theorists, chiefs of army, etc;
  • Unlocks unique technology.

Some additional Military Actions category decisions after completing the focus:

  • Pegasus Upgrade I - unlocks technology Pegasus division II
  • Pegasus Upgrade II - unlocks technology Pegasus division III
  • Pegasus Upgrade III - unlocks technology Pegasus division IV
  • Hegemony military training

Non-decision mechanic expansion - Unique unit leader ability - Tear Gas Bombardment after completing Weaponised Lachrymation focus.

Gain some more Prospect for Resourses category decisions.

Sometimes there will be Uprising events happening - Protectorate needs to suppress them or get a big debuffs.

If Lilac's politics fails - she can start the Flag of Equestrian Liberation Front Equestrian Liberation Front rise for itself - by decision:

  • Lilac's Gamble - unlocks the dire way to deal up with the resistance - additional focus tree to get some buffs and debuffs, build some forts, finish small war preparations and rise the ELF rebellion.
  • Secure The Regime - when the rebellion rises, needed to remove the negative National Spirit.

The Eastern Bulwark coastal defensive decisions:

  • Construct the Northern Stretch - coastal defences at the north, from Mirazh to Prance
  • "Construct the Southern Stretch - coastal defences at the south, from Phillydelpia to Manehattan

After completing the An Economic Miracle? focus, the following decision will be available:

It allows MAN to get an offmap Civilian Factories with some prerequisites

Ost-Equestrian Expansionism decisions are available after An Ost-Equestrian Identity focus:

  • "Operations" - to attack the Dragon Isles, Haukland, Stalliongrad, New Mareland, Township Fezera, Penguins and Kingdom of Vedina;
  • Mandatory - to puppet countries, conquered during "Operations".

Spoiler end.

National Focus

Continuous Focuses

Manehattan Protectorate has its uniqual continuous focuses, based on its mechanics:

  • The Love Harvest - Gives Erots of Love in cost of Factories usage, as longer this focus activated - as more erots it gives;
  • Free Love For All - Adds Political Power and Stability in cost of Love, more erots in stockpile -> more Politics Power and Stability gain.

Main Focus Tree

Starting and "Main" MAN Focus Tree
The Main tree of Protectorate that is starts from. It contains 5 Branches:
  • Middle - The main focus branch - attaches to Left-Middle and Right-Middle branches to get more bonuses and contains most of the country mechanics and politics. The whole tree starts here - from 84 Crystal Avenue focus; ++ also contains A Free Ost-Kommando and New Collaborationism tree;
  • Left Small - Very important garrison army focuses with uniqual bonuses, this branch starts from The Eastern Garrison focus;
  • Right Small - Architectural, construction focuses, mostly - some rare Collaborationists Presence points. This branch starts from Building Bridges? focus and is important to finish the whole tree without problems with Flag of Equestrian Liberation Front Equestrian Liberation Front, but is not necessary if no care of their uprising;
  • Left-Middle - Resistance Suppression focuses, starts from Smash the Resistance focus;
  • Right-Middle - Collaborationists-based focuses - second place in list of good bonuses. Branch starts from Confer with the Collaborationists focus and is important to finish the whole tree without problems with Flag of Equestrian Liberation Front Equestrian Liberation Front, but is not necessary if the player does not care about their uprising.

The table below contains only bonuses shown on the Main focus tree and not contains event bonuses information: they are mostly mutually exclusive or have complex event chains.

Lilac's Gamble Focus Tree

Lilac's Gamble Focus Tree

This Focus Tree will only be available if Lilac failed her politics and can't continue doing the main focus tree branches. This focuses are the last thing to do, because if they are finished - the Equestrian Liberation Front will rise on Protectorate territory, and perspectively even beat the whole Hegemony.

However, this tree allows the Protectorate to prepare for future war and destroy the resistance forces really quickly, that will be followed with removing of negative national spirits and rebelion unrest mechanics, and will let Protectorate get the so-called below "Late-Game Focus Tree" if it was not possible to continue the Main one.

There is no denying that Lilac's Changeling soldiers are an unwelcome host of foreign occupiers. The ponies of Manehattan and the eastern cities, cosmopolitan as they may be, bear a great deal of resentment towards our regime. Their lack of cooperation means that vital organs of government and industry are crippled without their willing collaboration.

As can be expected from a population of vengeful ponies, the Harmonic Resistance is a constant, throbbing thorn in the side of the Changeling regime. Their partisans fill the cracks where our control is loose, and their sympathisers proliferate in every level of society. At every turn, they sabotage our rule and undermine the legitimacy of our regime. We must not leave this menace unchecked, lest the ponies find it in themselves to rise up in open rebellion against us.

The Changeling military, fearsome as it is, has become severely overextended following the Queen's conquest of Equestria. Spread out over the territory of the eastern Equestrian seaboard, the Garrison of the Manehattan Protectorate is crippled with a myriad of shortcomings; of personnel, equipment, resources, expertise - you name it.

Her service to the Queen seemed to have paid off, though, as she was bestowed the title of Protectress over the exalted metropolis of Manehattan following its conquest.

Trained at the prestigious Vesalipolis Military Academy, Lilac served on the Queen's General Staff during the Great War against Equestria. As the Protectress of Manehattan, Lilac finally has the chance to command her own army on the field in the absence of a native officer corps. Her officer's uniform may not be as glamourous as the ceremonial evening gowns befitting her rank of Protectress, but on campaign with her troops is where Lilac feels most at home.
