Kenshi on the Rim

Kenshi on the Rim airs on Twitch from 5PM EDT to 8PM EDT Wednesdays and Fridays!


   » A Hiver, a Shek and a Skeleton walk out of a bar, band together, and start a new empire.
   » Traditional research is disabled and instead there’s a book/blueprint system much like Kenshi.
   » Viewers will be able to write the story by sending gifts to the fledgling empire, or sending attacks and raids.
   » You all are encouraged to try to balance the challenge, help where it is needed and attack when I am ready or too strong.
   » This series has the mod TwitchToolkit installed with allows viewers to interact directly with the game.
   » Additionally, here’s a bunch of other mods incorporated into the series Kenshi on the Rim Collection.
   » ArtyMarty (Mostly) and I am also doing some modding for this series as well, focused around adding in Kenshi animals into RimWorld.
   » Subscribers benefit from a bonus to income. Live viewing subscribers may also have survivors assigned to them, allowing them the ability to influence their own in-game avatar.

How it Works:
   » Every viewer has coins to spend purchasing items and events.
   » Every few minutes there is a set ‘income’ of additional coins given to every viewer.
   » When you buy events that are harmful, your Karma will decrease, which then also decreases your income.
   » The minimum karma level is 80% and the maximum level of karma is 120%
   » The breakdown of karma is on the events list.
   » All items purchased is positive karma.
   » There is a global cool-down of how many events can happen in a span of time, so you may, at times, be restricted from purchasing gifts or curses.
   » You can purchase events and items from the PDF lists above using the syntax listed below. You must submit your commands by whispering the bot, RhadTwitchBot, otherwise they will not work. Directions are here

Rules for the Scenario:

  • As influenced by the goal-less sandbox game Kenshi, this series will also not have definitive goals.
  • If the trio dies, the scenario restarts.

Rules for the Twitch Viewers:

  1. All commands must be whispered to the bot RhadTwitchBot. Directions are here
  2. Do not use the chat for toolkit commands, they won’t work (except for non-twitchtoolkit polls).
  3. You may not try to influence the way other people wish to participate in spending credits including bullying, criticism, pressuring, etc.
  4. Additional credits may be gifted to viewers, but don’t ask for them.
  5. Credit trading is disabled.
  6. Changes may be made or amended as time goes on.
