I am just going to put a brief description of up of the land in which this game will take place. For the moment it will be fairly vague but I intend to develop it later.
The game will begin on a peninsula, 150 miles across, and 300 long. This peninsula is connected to a main body of land at the northern most point, however a steep and dangerous mountain range hinders passage back and forth and as such the peninsula is more or less cut off from the rest of the continent.
Along the Eastern coastline the world is laid bare to the elements. Just off of the coast the bay is lethal, an untold number of razor-sharp rocks hide beneath the water's surface. The coastline itself is made up of broken rocks, large cliff surfaces and cold shingle beaches. Little life lives upon the Eastern shoreline, a number of small tribes survive by fishing but there few seafarers and even fewer farmers here.
Compared to the Eastern coastline, the Southern shoreline is much more welcoming. This coastline is populated by many fishing tribes who regularly compete for the choice fishing spots. Mainly consisting of sand beaches, the surrounding grounds are ripe for agriculture although many of the tribes do not practice farming and have little need to.
The north of the Peninsula is made up of dense forested areas, slowly giving way to hills and then mountains. It can be a hard life in this region, only getting harder, the further north you go. Tribes in this region survive by hunting, and tend to make clothing and housing from animal skins. For those willing to live a hard life in the mountains, there are veins of rich stone running deep through the mountain range.
Living in the middle of the Peninsula provides a good life, the soil is fertile and easy to work with. There tends to be a fix of fixed and nomadic tribes in this area, with farming and livestock being the principle forms of survival.
Life at the most southerly point on the Peninsula is the easiest, the farmland is fertile and it is easy to grow crops that can be cultivated into alcohols. The tribes in this region remain static, preferring to work with a known patch of land for long periods of time. Due to the fact that this region is often seen as desirable, it is not uncommon for tribes to wage war against each other for the choice spot of land.
Further information will be posted tomorrow, along with a basic hex-map.
