Re: Charali Racial Perspectives

Keep in mind that the Indo-Europeans and Bell-Beakers are part of the same phenomenon as the Mongols. All these groups are steppe nomads. The Mongols are just the last major group of steppe nomads to arrive on the scene. The Indo-European expansion was the first wave of steppe nomads to span the Eu...

Re: Charali Racial Perspectives

So I think we have a very different imagining of the Charali. I've never thought of them as Indo-European or Bellbreakers, more Mongolia. I don't think either of us is right/wrong on one place versus the other, just that it may be impacting why it doesn't seem to be a major contradiction for me. I d...

Re: Opening up Plots to More Players

I may be an oddball, because I generally like the plot system and use it (or try and encourage its use for others, helping them learn the system). I really dislike the idea of mandatory rumors. A bonus for rumors might be easier, as there are cases where might be manageable middle ground. I often do...

Re: Charali Racial Perspectives

Didn't think of the guilds! Knights: "How much of our land has been taken by enterprising Vavardi Knights under the excuse of their patrols?" Merchants: "Always get agreements in writing; even then, it may not be possible to hold them to their word." Physicians: "May as well just jump into a swamp o...

Re: Charali Racial Perspectives

Vavardi: "Never trust them - care more about coin than people." Vavardi: "The Charali that join their colonies have no more freedom than a cow hedged in by fences in a farmer's pasture." Tubori: "Keep your wits about you around them, else you will wind up a slave." Tubori: "Free of spirit, like wolv...

Re: Guild Exemptions for City Metrics

I think the only exception that's being suggested is when guilds need certain things to do their work, like morris medical supply for the Physicians or Gailiech ores for the Merchants; stuff like that, where they HAVE to buy from on grid shops to do their guild thing. Oh and as far as I know, GL sh...

Farin on the Charali: Not to be trusted, even the slaves. A cursed people. Ever hear them talk? Sound just like the Daravi.

Re: [Poll] Local or inter-ducal RP focus?

Mind, I'm not certain I'm right. I'm floating it to understand the pbase's view on the whole. I suppose I have to ask - if you saw an advertisement for TI as a high politic, multi-kingdom game, would that be more exciting than a game about insidious local politics? Does one call out to you more tha...
