Hi. You probably have heard about this game, Arcanum, if you've been on IOTChat for more than five minutes. In case you haven't, however, and also decided to ignore the lore due to its wordiness, in resume, this is a game about magic and technology clashing in a fantasy world following the aftermath of a collapse of a world-spanning Elf empire that used magic to rule the world. There's more to it than that, but, of course, you can always read up on it. In any case, however, I'd like to welcome you to Arcanum! This game wouldn't have become reality without the help of the following people (in no particular order): Southern_King, Tyo Sonereal, Omega124, ThorvaldofLym, Crezth, Angst, Cived and Decamper, and Seon..., to be fair, most of IOTChat. And, of course. Ninjacow64 for agreeing to run this game alongside him. He wrote the whole ruleset and will do all the calculations whilist I'll be here and writing the updates. Joining the Game: To join the game, simply fill out this information about your nation. More detail about your nation would be appreciated, this form is simply the bare minimum we need to know at start. Nation Name: The name of your nation Capital Name: The name of your capital city Location of Capital and Borders: The location of your capital city, plus 2 more cities as well as the borders of your nation. Be reasonable with your border claims! Flag: Your flag Dominant Species: The dominant species of your nation. The species you choose will determine many things about your nation, including your starting Technology vs Magic meter. Minor Species: Minor species are species that, while not dominant, have a large presence in your starting city. You may take as many or as few minor species at game start, but for each one you take you start with a larger stability penalty. Trying to take a majority or all of the races at once is a one-way ticket to a civil war. Government: Your government type, you can choose from Hereditary/Appointed/Elective. Ruler Name: The name of your ruler. Stats will be randomly generated and slightly influenced by your starting post. Heir Name: The name of your heir. Stats will be randomly generated and influenced by your starting post. Names: Sample names that your nation uses. Background: Your nation's origins. How it works. Why it's like that. Basically, your history. The more details, the better. Religion: Not exactly needed per se, but a few sentences wouldn't be bad. Spoiler : Main Map Climate Map (subject to change. maybe.)
