So I've been wanting to start a new game on DDO because I haven't in awhile. I tried to get this game going before but never got the sign-ups needed. So I've altered the game in a way that it allows anyone to join at anytime. You'll actually receive an advantage in the game by getting here early!

If you're unfamiliar with Fate, the second most popular yet far less known game on DDO behind mafia, it goes like this. The rules and content of the game are flexible and largely generated by the players, as opposed to Fate(the mod), who is more of a judge and an organizer, creating the basic context for the game scenario and having as few rules as possible on top of that. Players describe their actions and Fate decides if it's allowed based on the context they've created and may continue to create throughout the game.

INTRODUCING

Class War

CONTEXT:

This game evolved out of many previous games based on simulating economic and political situations.

There will be different stages. Each stage represents a technological and political leap in time.

When a player joins the game, and through the entire first stage, players will have only one character to play as. But as the game progresses, they will grow to control families and entire cultures.

But the portion of the total population you represent isn't the most important prize. It's the amount of political and economic power your people possess.

At the beginning of each new stage I will tell the story of what happened in the previous stage and include any important news and statistics. Then I'll create a list of all players, displaying their population, economic power by region, political power by region and any relevant notes.

RULES:

1. All actions, besides joining the game, must be sent to me in bold via PM. If it's not in a PM or it's not bold, I will ignore it. Stick with one PM. I don't want to get spammed. Don't overload me if the game gets too many players (15ish). Feel free to send any game-related messages to other players. Or use this thread to discuss it publicly.

2. To join the game, post in bold that you are doing so in this thread, for everyone to see.

3. You can die. If you die in the first stage or the entire population you represent somehow dies, you will need to start from scratch in the next stage if you wish to continue playing. You can also kill. The amount of people you can kill depends on your means. You can only kill up to one person in the first round. You can steal or sabotage or break the law, anything that's physically possible based on the resources you have available at the time, all with consequences.

STAGE ONE: IN THE BEGINNING

A small island. Beautiful weather. Thick forest with fresh water and wildlife. Maximum resource efficiency with 5 working people. Unsustainable at 10 people.

Strange beings begin to roam the land on two feet. What are they doing here? What will they become?

I join the game, and Zaradi on the island, and I bore him with my knowledge of Queen and The Beatles, as well as Avatar: The Last Airbender.

My person, along with the other Islands natives, has helped to establish a language with which to communicate. My person has given himself a name: Ovid.

He is a fisherman and is mapping-out the starry-sky, by identifying constellations.

Ovid has constructed himself a boat house in which to dwell. He has placed a sign on the beach in front of his boat with a smiley face to communicate his will to establish peace with the other inhabitants.

Ovid has tossed a pile of fresh, thrashing fish onto dry land to communicate a genuine desire for cooperation.

He sits back on a lounge chair in shades.

People are taking their first moves, gathering supplies, fishing and starting fires. Still no one working together.
