Twibes of Erfworld
Erfworld Empires IX – by LTDave


Image
The Old One croaked in the night.
Finally.
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.
Cheers

What is your twibe’s name and kind/race/species? The Cwafters, Gnomes
What is your twibe’s colour(s) and symbol? A wagon wheel, brown
What is your ruler’s name? Chief Builder
What is your twibes story? How did you come to this place? The Crafters are a funny tribe. They prefer to build things, and trade those things with other tribes. Largely pacifists they only fight when they can't leave hex. They would up where they currently are due to some issues with another larger tribe deciding they wanted everything the builders had for free. The builders were forced to abandon their equipment, and start over.
What are your twibe’s base stats? (10 points to distribute between Combat, Defence, Hits, and Move, with at least one point in each) 1 Combat, 3 Defense, 3 Hits, 3 Move.

I'll give one of these a shot - not sure how much time I'll have though. :P

What is your twibe’s name and kind/race/species?
Twibe B.G.s - Boogie-woogie-men. An offshoot of the Boogymen, Boogie-woogie-men are a species of short, men-like creatures with large, frizzy hair and a knack for staying alive. They're small, but that just helps them get down.

What is your twibe’s colour(s) and symbol?
Red, Orange, Blue and Green. The symbol is a disco ball over a field of like-coloured disco tiles.

What is your ruler’s name?
His Bootylicious the Funklord Beat Box.

What is your twibes story? How did you come to this place?
The Dance-Dance Revolution was swiftly ended - Beat Box and his brigade of Backup Lancers were upstaged by the lord Bogey, and exiled from the Bedroom Forest. No longer would Beat Box frighten Gobwins for a living. He and his spin-off had fought for their right to party, and they were determined to do so every day. The Funklord led his ensemble through the desert, emerging in this new land. Finally, the Boogie-woogie-men could dance their nights away.

(I tried my best, there wasn't much to work off.)

What are your twibe’s base stats? (10 points to distribute between Combat, Defence, Hits, and Move, with at least one point in each)
Hits: 2
Combat: 2
Defence: 1
Move: 5

You know you're in deep water when every single unit has (Starving!) next to their name.

Sorry for taking so long, but was trying to settle on the twibe I wanted. I had wanted to do a crafting twibe, but Understandslittle beat me to it, and I don't want to copy him too much.

And so:
What is your twibe’s name and kind/race/species? The Huuns, a race of half horse half man units.
What is your twibe’s colour(s) and symbol? A tun, white on black.
What is your ruler’s name? Khan
What is your twibes story? How did you come to this place? The Huuns are a varied race with many twibes spread around, but all fight and bicker with one another. All of the posturing leaves each twibe too weak to do anything of true consequence. Khan plans on changing that. He has removed his twibe somewhat from the others, planning to gather strength, conquering other, lesser twibes, and then return to sweep up his brother twibes, and from there, perhaps even entire sides!
What are your twibe’s base stats? (10 points to distribute between Combat, Defence, Hits, and Move, with at least one point in each)4/2/2/2 (I know, move should be higher, but I just wanted a combat focused twibe, and just got through a game of Civ V as the Huns ;P)

Damn starvation.

I haven't actually done any crafting yet. Too busy trying to set up food sources.

Well, if sign ups are still open, then here is my tribe.

What is your twibe’s name and kind/race/species?
Clanna Dedad. Cwuthin, Strong and thick-skinned, but slow, giants.

What is your twibe’s colour(s) and symbol?
Red, and Yellow. A shield covering a fortress.

What is your ruler’s name?
Deda Mac.

What is your twibes story? How did you come to this place?
Clanna Dedad sailed a crossed a great ocean from their ancestral homelands leaving behind a great war for supremacy between their kinsmen. In this new land they hope to make a new home free from the strife of brother against brother that had enveloped the old world they left behind. They knew this new land might be harsh at first, but hopefully with unity between members of the Clanna they overcome the trials of these savage wilds and build a kingdom that would be the envy of those they had left behind.

What are your twibe’s base stats? (10 points to distribute between Combat, Defence, Hits, and Move, with at least one point in each)
2. 3. 4. 1. (Lets hope that move doesn't come back to bite me in the rear).
.

Figured i would try a tribe with a different stat setup then those currently in play and see where that gets me. Hopefully, we don't all starve to death from super slow hunters :(

What is your twibe’s name and kind/race/species? The Sons of Howus
What is your twibe’s colour(s) and symbol? Black and gold. Symbol is a stylized eye in the center of a gold 8 pointed star on a black background.
What is your ruler’s name? Lord Abbadabba
What is your twibes story? How did you come to this place? Thousands of turns ago, the Titan that walks, the Emprah himself, created 20 perfect Warlords. 20 brothers that were truly fit to rule, even more fitter than Royals. Howus was the greatest of these. Inevitably, the brothers quarreled, and warred. Most of them, and the Emprah were croaked. Howus was mortally wounded by a blade which was ensorcelled with a foul Flower Power/Weirdomancy poison. Due to his super-Erfian stamina, Howus was able to survive for hundreds of turns despite the poison, but inevitably he succumbed. He ceded his tribe to his chosen heir, Lord Abbadabba. Abbadabba has decided it's time for the Sons of Howus to take their rightful place as the rulers of Erfworld.
What are your twibe’s base stats? Combat 3, Defense 3, Hits 3, move 1. The Sons of Howus are hearty and tough, excellent warriors with spear, blade and axe. They wear heavy, black plated armor that can turn all but the toughest blows. The downside is that this armor slows them down, making maneuvering difficult.

3move. Anything more and it would get to non-combat oriented, any less would be to slow.

We had a extreme movement tribe, a very high combat tribe, and a somewhat high defense/movement tribe with a lack of combat ability when i made mine.

Figured i would try to make a tribe as different as i could, hardy, defensive, and slow with a decent punch.

Just as a heads up for everyone - I'm getting rid of autofeeding - if you want your twibe to eat, you need to order them to do so.

If you don't order it, they'll starve and cwoak.

A slot has opened if there are any lurkers who would like to start a twibe.
