Regional Factbook Entry contect!

Post by Varasd on Mon Jan 25, 2016 9:53 pm

The regional factbook entry contest thread!

Hey people!

I've noticed recently that our regional factbook entry is waaay to plain, simple, and outdated. I've been thinking about it for a while now, what to write into it, etc., but coudn't come up with anything really useful, or creative.

So I was thinking that we make a regional contest about it! Anyone can post their ideas here, and we'll have a vote on which one you like the most!

The winner gets +1 region on the map!

In before anyone says I'm lazy, I really can't come up with anything good, I've tried, believe me. Plus I think this is a good way to get you all involved a little bit more in the life of the region!

You should add a fluff to the factbook. It's the first thing we see when we go on the region's page. Set a tone, an atmosphere. "A harsh world, with a lot of enemies, and opportunities."

From my years of roleplaying experience, Medieval roleplay has to be one of the most interesting topics to play with. You need to stimulate the roleplayers, make them hyped about joining. It's gonna hook people to the region for a minute and surely attract more players towards us.

We need more color and horizontal lines. That's really all it takes to fix it up. Setting a tone is something I agree with. 

I can try to type all the code out and see how that works.

Well, here's my initial offering (may update it later with either some new text or other coding).

Regional Factbook Submission:

“If chance will have me king, why, chance may crown me.”

Macbeth, William Shakespeare



EUROPE.  Ever has it known strife.  The days of the Roman Emperors have ended, and in their place stand the many princes vying for power.  Across Christendom, lords of noble blood seek to claim one another’s lands and add them to their own.  In the north, pagan tribesman press their advantage to honor their heathen gods.  From over the Steppes, Mongol hordes have arrived as harbingers of a coming greater invasion. In the Near East, a Jewish king claims dominion over the Holy Land as Muslim lords dominate the Silk Road.  And at the heart of Europe, Rome remembers its ancient glory and hungers to restore it.

What manner shall your nation take?  A feudal realm of scheming nobles all serving their own petty interests?  A host of holy warriors sent to smite the infidel and spread the word of their god?  A merchant republic bringing lords to their knees by rule of the trade lanes?  A homeland for mercenary bands growing rich off the conflicts of others?  A kingdom of conscience?  A kingdom of Heaven?

Most importantly, do you have the steel to be a prince of MEDIEVAL EUROPE?

Tho the whole thing was too long for a regional factbook entry, so I had to shorten it... I think I'll set it as a welcome message for the newcomers, plus recruitment aswell!
