Unity on the Fields of Vol The fields of Vol are a described as a grassy plain abundant with beast and game ruled by disparate horse tribes of Kimmeri-Kelts. If these tribes were but to unite they would pose a great threat to the peoples and powers around them.
Each player represents the warlord of a small Kimmeri-Kelt nomad tribe near the mouth of the River Vol at the start of the year 590 (Whale). I need each of you to decide the following;
a name for your warlord
a character class and level for your warlord (level = 3+d3)
up to 3 character traits and 2 personal objectives for your warlord (do not post these in the thread, pm them to me, we can discuss them).
a name for your tribe
the primary religion for your tribe
the size of your tribe (= 250+d6x10)
one thing that identifies your tribe as unique or interesting
one thing your tribe is particularly good at.
The flow and play of the game;
Turns will be 1 month long, though multiple decisions and things may happen in one month, so this will be sort of abstract but gives a general frame work.
Players currently active are assumed to have their tribe in an area (will produce a map) around the mouth of the River Vol on the fields of Vol.
Here a formal alliance has been agreed by (starting two players, more can join or leave).
The tribes in the alliance will be given descriptions of opportunities or threats and will have to discuss them present responses. They will have the resources of their tribes to consider, the needs of the forth coming winter, their personal goals, and the fragility of the alliance.
Each month players will have to decide make a few generic decisions; the broad activities of their tribe, where it is going to relocate too, what it is willing to trade or stockpile etc. Then they may undertake specific tasks such as expeditions, monster hunts, rituals, and many more in response to scenarios as they arise. Think of this game as a light improv driven strategy game and roleplaying game.
This thread will be used for game dicusssion and ideas. Once I have a map (sometime mid week probably) and player info I will start a thread for in game responses for the gm and players.
