Twibes of Erfworld
Erfworld Empires IX – by LTDave The Old One croaked in the night.
The last dozen turns had been really hard on everybody. All that coughing and complaining and the crazy orders.
Now it is your chance to show what you can do. You are the new ruler of the twibe. You are the leader they need – the Titans’ choice for thisturn.
Twibes of Erfworld is a play by PM game. Players will interact with the GM and each other via Private Messages. There will be some interaction on the forum thread. Like most LTDave games, the bulk of the rules are hidden (or non-existent). If you can dream it and have the resources for it, you can probably do it. It’s a bit like the Marbit Island series, except more competition than cooperation. There are some obvious things, however:
There are three main resources: Food – Materials – Schmuckers
Your people eat food – if they don’t, they die. They make stuff out of Materials. They upgrade and pay maintenance using Schmuckers. Food is gathered, hunted, or farmed. Materials are cut from trees or mined out of the ground. Schmuckers are… well, earned. In a variety of ways.
Up to nine structures can be built in a hex. Each tribe will start with Tents (that provide shelter and produce new people) and a Workshop (that turns Materials into Tools and other items).
Once a hex is explored / scouted, it will remain visible to the player. If another player moves into a hex you have previously scouted, you will know about it – though you may not know exactly what is there.
There will be at least one turn per week, and many more turns in the early rounds.
Time to make some decisions (this information can be posted on the forum):
What is your twibe’s name and kind/race/species?
What is your twibe’s colour(s) and symbol?
What is your ruler’s name?
What is your twibes story? How did you come to this place?
What are your twibe’s base stats? (10 points to distribute between Combat, Defence, Hits, and Move, with at least one point in each)
That’s enough to get started. I would like at least three players, and can probably handle up to five. Sweeping Dwagon will continue as normal, so no worries there.
