"After the death of the god king, chaos reigns. A number of lords have sworn allegiance to their new king, and those under them in turn. Many have died in the recent plague, which followed the war against the black queen. Floods have damaged numerous areas in the kingdom, and many have turned to banditry to provide for them and theirs. Thousands of horses have been slaughtered in recent months, being used for food when the crops failed."

You are a lord (known as a graf in pictish) in the realm of Dalak Tai, former of the kingdom of Pictia. it is a wide realm, and many small settlements have broken off to form something greater. or at least, that's the hope. in general, your goal is to provide for your people, and ensure their ways of life are preserved.

Asking questions and such of other players should be done here. if you wish to do something out of character, either contact me, or note it by inserting double quotation marks ((Like this.))
Also, post your character and city here if it's not already in the google doc. This is in case of data loss.


General ideas:
One person is the feudal overlord/king. He will create his title and GM over what you guys are doing, and request responses to engagements and other stuff. he will also be briefed (by me) as to a number of problems each week or so. This is a cooperative game, but also can feature PVP. talk to me if you want to be king. the position is currently still vacant, but it generally needs a fair amount of time compared to the game, at least in my imagination.

I will be playing the role of GM and bandit master. my job is to screw with you guys and make your lives significantly more interesting. but you may not have all the tools at your disposal to deal with threats... so you'll have to pool your resources from your friends.

techbase is medieval/renaissance. guns exist, but are uncommon/in their infancy. Grenades and hand cannons exist, but aren't at all advanced.

Magic may or may not exist. if it does, it's rare.

Democratic elements:
How this goes down is largely up to you guys. you all have the ability to propose bills, which then can be voted upon. what happens after an action is proposed depends upon democracy. in case of a tie, king has veto power. this is subject to my own veto which will be very rarely enacted (repealing the law of gravity may result in veto, but being like 'a bill to allow safe travel to and from whatever to whatever' or "MAIM KILL BURN BILL" will not result in a GM veto.

Societal elements:
Build a city, or build a town, or fishing village, or whatever. this will be further discussed after the event goes up. the choice is yours. you can go as in-depth or superficial as you want, but I may reward some elements of depth if you guys are interested enough.

CURRENT GRAF LIST:
[forthcoming]

CURRENT SETTLEMENT LIST
[forthcoming]

THIS GAME WILL START ON SATURDAY, DECEMBER 2.
If you have any questions on the setting, feel free to ask.

Substantive rules:


ROLLS TO IMPROVE YOUR FIEFDOM/CITY SHOULD NOT BE ATTEMPTED UNTIL PROMPTED BY THE GM. TO GET SUCH A CHANCE, PROPOSE BILLS IN THE RELEVANT FORUM. IF THEY PASS, GOOD THINGS WILL HAPPEN. IF NOT, MAYBE NOT. NOT ALL BILLS WILL YIELD THE SAME THINGS. BE CREATIVE!


HOWEVER, RESOURCES SPENT FROM PREVIOUS TURNS WILL ALLOW BONUSES TO THE NEXT TURN'S ROLL. IE,
I want to better my sovereignty roll next time.
-okay, you get +1 from your sovereignty roll to use next time.


--> this is one action. An action is something that requires a roll [tentative definition.] every time you roll, you subtract 1 from the roll for that turn.


QUICK ACTIONS REFERENCE SHEET:
http://www.gregstolze.com/Company_Reference.pdf

regarding bills:
if a bill has consensus, it will pass. consensus is defined at 80% of members saying yay to a bill.
this is subject to how long it takes for me to see it. once seen, it will be enacted at midnight that day, or if such would be ridiculous (11pm for example) I will delay ratification for a day. ]]>
