    Try #2 at this. This signup overrides basically everything in the past one. Mostly.




    Name: The Alfian Lake Lakeocracy

    High Concept: Awakened Lake Elves Hate You: We have slumbered for a ten thousand millennia, peaceful and serene as we are; but then, suddenly, this "Senpai" created what is called a "side dish" and he once more gave life to us. A thousand million bloodshot eyes came out of the water, awakened once more, because of this person's actions.

    The only conclusion is that we must end this farce, once and for all.

    Trouble
    : Humanity!: This "Senpaii"'s offsprings and their related races are all around us, and maybe, if we wage a brutal conflict against them, we could get the bastard who did this terrible act of creation.

    Stunt: The Lakes, They're Alive: The forces of the Lakeocracy can travel through the lakes of this forsaken world.

    Covert 1 - You're just swimming through your lake or maybe even your river, when suddenly, BAM, someone rips off your legs and you horribly die.

    Charm -1 - The Alfians think that they're the most beautiful and pretty things to exist - which, while, objectively true, does not reflect in the way they act, mostly because they're murdersome psycopaths who want to murder you.

    Cunning 0 - They're smart. Like a snake. A snake that can come out of the water. A snake that is also capable of casting spells.

    Force 1 - Alongside with us, a race of sentient starfish warriors emerged out of the waters, who were also very pissed off about being awakened by some goddamn [tier-1 swear] idiot.

    Knowledge 2 - The power of magic is within our fingertips and we're not afraid to use it to end this nonsense!

    Thrift 0 - Magic doesn't really make you thrifty, I guess.

    High Concept: Necromancer Cult

    Origin Story: Once upon a time there was that kid in the back of your class who creeped everyone out and was probably going to shoot up the some day. Somehow that kid became a necromancer, and then moved to India. Rather than finding enlightenment, he founded his own Undeath cult, and now spends his days drowning people in the Ganges to bring them back


    Trouble: Living Humans

    While many embrace this chance for eternal life, even if they no longer have free will to speak of, there are many who reject it, with hurtful words like "abomination" and "unnatural"

    Stunt:
    We'll Raise Your Corpse, Your Father's Corpse, and Your Grandfather's Corpse (No we don't care that he's not dead): When you inflict a Moderate or Severe consequence upon an enemy by killing a lot of people, you gain the situation aspect Your Dead Comrades Serve Us Now! (with a free invoke).

    Stats:
    Covert: 0 (There's no point in being evil if you don't do it with style)
    Charm:-1 ( We just tend to trigger everyone's flight or fight instincts for some reason.)
    Cunning:0 (Our strategy boils down to "drown them with numbers" but it works)
    Force: 1 (Look, all a zombie is really good for is a suicide bombing run)
    Knowledge:2 (When you're a death cult with an infinite supply of subjects, there's really no such thing as "barriers to research" or "unethical experiments")
    Thrift: 1 (The undead: Don't need to eat, don't need to be paid, don't need to sleep and don't have pesky desires like vacations)

    Trouble: No Musical Talent

    Studying Anime Girl
    A virtual icon in the industry, Studying Anime Girl is not but one girl but all anime girls who are doing homework while listening to some sweet tunes for the streams the lofi hip hop promoters put on. Critics of the industry are quick to point out that while cute and endearing, having to do homework 24/7 in front of a live audience takes a mental health toll on these young women and that they should be on the ones profiting from their work.

    High Concept: Studying Anime Girl
    Trouble: The Exploited Masses
    Primary Approach: Knowledge

    The Late Seba "nujabes" Jun
    Nujabes was a Japanese record produce, DJ, composer, and arranger who produced atmospheric instrumental mixes sampling from hip hop and jazz. Okay look I just quoted his wikipedia page at you but the point is this guy, while probably not being lofi hip hop himself, is a gateway drug to the genre. Everyone loves him and was sad when he died. But now he lives on through his music and the music of others inspired by him.

    Draconic Thunder Stats

    High Concept: Here Be Dragons

    The result of a hilarious typo in a summoning ritual, the Thunder is populated largely by dragons of wildly different sizes and shapes and other reptilian humanoids, such as the Dragonborn from the Forgotten Realms and the Argonians from Tamriel, to name just a few. The dragon's famous lust for gold has made them wealthy as well as giving them a special fusion of industry and arcane magic.

    Trouble: My Armor Is Like Tenfold Shields, My Teeth Are Swords, My Claws Spears, The Shock Of My Tail A Thunderbolt, My Wings A Hurricane, And My Breath Death!

    Dragons have a size and power to them that is dwarfed only by their massive egos. This self-importance has made them difficult to interact with diplomatically, and can sometimes lead to them being equal parts overconfident and stubborn.

    Stunt: Winged Terror
    WIP

    Stats:
    Covert: -1 (Okay so a dragon isn't the most subtle creature in the world, and we can't always rely on the Argonians to sneak around. Sue us.)
    Charm: 0 (I mean, if you're into that sort of thing...)
    Cunning: 1 (All these Dragons from all these different worlds have afforded us a breadth of cunning and plotting minds to use)
    Force: 1 (If you haven't caught on already, we have a LOT of dragons.)
    Knowledge: 0 (We're smart, but we prefer to take all the cool science instead of making our own. Usually.)
    Thrift: 2 (Have you seen what Smaug brought with him? We're freakin' LOADED!)

    A New Holy Crusade
    Our world is being invaded. From across the planes of existence armies of unthinkable demons have descended upon us. No less than 6 portals have opened in or outside of our borders and a horde of horrors has spilled forth from them. They say that this is an invasion from Hell - how fortuitous then that it is clear that we are the epicentre of this attack. We will rally our armies to defend our homeland in a way that no other nation could, the purity of our hearts and the sanctity of our deeds make us the best line of defence that the world could hope for.

    And be under no illusion because the hope of the whole world rests on us. Portals have opened up across the globe from which the demonic hordes have arrived. Though we may be the epicentre we are not alone in our struggle and with the aid of our brothers and sisters across the world we can repel this threat. I call upon all our cousins throughout the remnant of the old Canterbury empire, put aside our differences until this is over. Right now it is not just the defence of the realm that we must consider but the defence of humanity, the defence of creation and the defence of our very souls.

    These demons can be fought back, they can be defeated. Together, through faith and the sword, we will find victory.

    Valerin:
    Spoiler :



    Valerin is odd ... eccentric one might say. Completely stark raving mad if you don't value your life. Born to a human father and an eldritch abomination mother (Don't ask, you don't want to know. You really really don't want to know) his main goal in life is to find a way to free his mother from the abyss she resides in with other cosmic horrors. He's scarily smart, and might've found a way to accomplish this by now, if he wasn't also flighty and distractable, getting pulled into a thousand other pet research projects, from creating intelligent zombies to making them explode to making urine blue and taste like cheese.

    Yuxor the Soul Weaver:
    Spoiler :



    Yuxor was born Scott Brown. As a kid he sat in the back of the class, was generally an awful human being to the people around him, and had that quiet intensity, and random bursts of violence going from 0 to 60 in seconds that convinced his class mates that he'd shoot up the school one day. He felt misunderstood by society and unfairly rejected by women and found the incels. Early on he found Kaiserreich and through it became an avowed Communist, attracted by the ideas of Mosley and Mussolini. He would later be recommended by an alt right mentor ninjacow 1488 to take a journey of spiritual enlightenment, and head to the savage lands to be reborn as his best self in a crucible of hell. And so Yuxor headed to India where he found his own cult.

    Yuxor is a drama queen, always prepared to explode into unholy violence at the slightest provocation. He's never pleased with his subordinates, and complains bitterly about the unfairness of the world. He doesn't understand why people can't see the greatness of the gift he offers and believes himself to be an agent of destiny, with everyone else acting as the NPc's in his story. He also decorates his bodies with dozens of tattoos. No one's been brave enough yet to check if one of them is a swastika.

    Zombie Gandhi
    Spoiler :



    Valerin's first semi-successful attempt at creating a truly intelligent undead, not just a mindless zombie but a free thinking creature. While Gandhi is more intelligent than his predeccessors, he is not quite perfect. Valerian couldn't get the brain chemistry quite right, so now this zombie Gandhi wants to nuke everyone. Since no one really has an objection to this and Valerian didn't have the heart to put him down, the Council keeps him as an honorary member and a mascot of sorts

    The Arch Necromancer
    Spoiler :




    The Arch necromancer is the "sane" one, an easy title to hold in this council. He is the only one who seems actually interested in sometimes using the fact that they are the government to solve problems. A dependable and reliable sort, he's somehow earned the affections of the other two members of the council to the point where some have called it "homoerotic" or "Yaoi bait" but those people are filthy degenerates who need to be put in reeducation camps for perverting the beautiful friendship between men.

    Minister Without Porfolio Lapis Lazuli
    Just attends meetings to hang out with Steven. Also possesses terrifying water powers.

    Treasurer Sadie Miller
    Not really a banker by nature, but none of the gems have any fiscal sense so it might as well be her.​

    Manaketes and Dragons


    Tiki transformed into her true draconic form


    While humans make up the vast majority of Ylisse today, the history of the country and their old world was perhaps more defined by the presence of the second most numerous: the dragon. Dragons are an ancient race, predating the rise of mankind in Archanea. They once ruled the rule as effectively immortal beings*, far more intelligent and powerful than any other creature in the world. During this time of dragons, they were divided into four main "tribes", based off of their lineage and elemental control. These tribes were the Fire Dragons, the Earth Dragons, the Ice Dragons, the Mage Dragons (also derisively called "Demon Dragons" by humanity) and the Divine Dragons. Out of these dragons, the most powerful were the Earth and Divine Dragons, who competed for superiority among all Dragonkind.

    However, as the first dragons started to live out their miraculously long lifespans, many dragons started to go under a process known as degeneration. Degenerated dragons lost their fertility and sense of being, eventually becoming nothing more than feral, marauding beasts. The leader of the Divine clan, Naga, proposed a plan to seal their draconic forms into magical crystals known as Dragonstone, which would halt the process of degeneration in return for giving up the power of their true forms. These dragons became known as Manaketes, and became virtually indistinguishable from humans besides long, pointed ears and long, sharp fingernails. The Earth clan refused the process, being prideful in their true forms and also wary of losing their place of dominance over humanity if they took human forms. As more Earth Dragons started degenerating and attacking humans, this eventually caused the Divine Dragons to attack the Earth Dragons, starting a draconic civil war. The other three clans split in the middle, some supporting Naga, and some supporting the Earth Dragons.

    Only two non-degenerated Earth Dragons survived. One fled the known world, eventually setting himself up as a tyrant of a continent far away from twin continents of Archanea and Valentina. The other, Medeus, was the sole Earth Dragon to support Naga and accept becoming a Manakete. He was entrusted to look after the surviving, degenerated Earth Dragons, whom Naga sealed away so they would no longer harm humanity. For the next one thousand years, Medeus was forced to watch as Manaketes were now started to be oppressed by humans, taking out their revenge for the mistreatment dragons once afflicted upon them. For a thousand years, Medeus watched, rage building up in his heart.



    Medeus, the last Earth Dragon, in human form


    Eventually, Medeus snapped. Humanity had to be brought down to its proper place. He founded the nation of Dohlr, a nation built entirely on Manakete nationalism. Medeus was initially successful in taking over the continent, establishing draconic rule over Archanea for the first time in millennium. However, he was defeated by a man named Arni, a warrior who first was blessed with Falchion, a magical dragon-slaying sword forged out of one of the fangs of Naga.

    However, Medeus would be revived by his human followers with dark magic, who revered the last Earth Dragon as a god. However, his resurrection bounded him to reside in a castle in Dohlr, his full power unawakened. Instead, he had his agents influence the politics of the continent, convicing kings to swear fealty to him and destroying those who refused. One nation that refused was the new kingdom of Altea, which was founded by Arni and thus represented a sore spot for Medeus. Medeus's agents executed the entire royal family, save for one prince by the name of Marth, who took loyalists to him and fled the kingdom to create an army-in-exile.

    Marth would eventually slay Medeus a second time after finding the Falchion once more and assembling the Fire Emblem as a shield. However. Medeus would be revived a third and final time. By this point, Naga's seal on the degenerated Dragons has vanished, and Medeus went to free his brethern to once again release them on humanity. However, he was stopped by Marth once again, and despite his claims to once again return, has been seemingly permanently killed.

    However, this was not the last time the world was threatened by Dragons. In the time between Medeus's second death but before his third resurrection, a mad scientist in Valentina by the name of Forneus created an artificial dragon with the blood of a Divine Dragon. This artifical creation, twisted with mavolent magic, would eventually create the world's strongest being, the Fell Dragon Grima.



    Grima, in all of his unholy glory

    It would take a thousand years for Grima to reach maturity, but by the time he did, he proved to be even more powerful than any dragon to live. Such was the power of Grima, it arguably even eclipsed Naga's own power. Even the Falchion could not slay him, only put him to rest. Much like the degenerated dragons, Grima was sealed away, with his dark powers, including being able to raise the dead as an army, easily turning him into a god amongst humans. His devotees, the Grimleal, would eventually form the nation of Plegia, while those still loyal to Naga and her chosen heros would form Ylisse.

    A thousand years later, the Grimleal eventually had a vessel, a woman with pure enough blood, to sacrifice to break the seal and resurrect Grima. In the orgional timeline, the ritual was successfully completed, and humanity was all but wiped out. Lucina, the last surviving royal of Ylisse, led the human resistance against Grima, but could not find the last missing piece of the Fire Emblem, and subsequently could not complete the prophesied ritual, the Awakening, that first sealed Grima away. With no hope left for humanity, with the last remaining human of significant note sacked by Grima, Lucina decides to instead travel back into the past and try to prevent Grima's resurrection.

    In this altered timeline, Lucina was able to initially delay the ressurection of Grima for two years, which was all humanity needed to have a chance. The vessel for Grima was unknowingly seized by Chrom when they found her lying in the road, unconcious, a spanner that ultimately unraveled Grima. Whiile Ylisse had to deal with unprecedented three wars in that timeframe of two years, the lack of the apocalypse made securing the five gems of the Fire Emblem less hectic overall. However, the resurrection of Grima could not be fully stopped, with Grima sending his own agent from the future to make sure Lucina could not fully muck it up. However, Robin, with Grima's own blood inside her in a concentrated enough form, could use her own magic to truly slay the Fell Dragon once and for all. Although assumed at the cost of her own life, Robin actually survived, and peace was finally restored to Ylisse.

    ---

    Today in Ylisse, most surviving dragons are of the Divine Dragon clan, with only one known survivor from the Fire clan. Manaketes are no longer repressed like they were in the days of Medeus, if only for the simple fact that so few still even exist, and are heavily tied to Naga. However, they still remain some of the most powerful warriors in Ylisse (when they tap into their true draconic forms), and their long lifespans makes them unusually accomplished in whatever fields they choose to specialize in. A curious quirk is that most surviving dragons have green hair in their Manakete forms. This seems to be more of a result of genetic bottlenecking than anything else, given that even Divine Dragons had more varied hair colors during the days of Arni and Marth.

    Finally, much like how humans have chimpanzees, dragons have close genetic ancestors that never reached true sapience. These creatures are known as Wyverns, which resemble minature dragons. Some dragons have given them a poetic name, considering them to be like an unofficial fifth tribe: the Flying Dragon clan. Unlike true dragons, Wyvrens are still numerous within the realm of Archanea (and thus Ylisse in IdIOT 2), and are an unorthodox choice of mount for sky knights (with pegasi being the far more conventional choice). There tends to be a rivalry between Wyvren and Pegasus knights over which mount is superior, as the pegasi more calm, gentle demenour contrasts with the more energetic, restless, and violent Wyvern. Wyvern do possess a breath attack in the wild, but the act of domesticating them generally involves breeding it out so that they don't accidentally burn their rider.


    A feral wyvern, agitated and tense, almost ready to burn whatever is bothering it


    *There is no stated average lifespan for dragons, but we do know that Tiki took three thousand years to reach adulthood, and that there were adult dragons while Tiki was still a child. Background lore for the first game indicates its possible that dragons in the FE universe could have natural lifespans measured in the tens of thousands of years.

    KEY FIGURES OF THE REVOLUTION
    (part 2)


    Image: A common sight of James being a nice gentleman.

    Minister of Foreign Affairs
    Gentleman James


    Alternate history enthusiasts loves to contemplate of James in another timeline - a world where he might be an average boy, capable of doing cool things like music and perhaps attractive looking enough and capable to bang a female or two - with a little nerdy side of playing Minecraft until he fell asleep at 6 AM. In the society we live in, however, James is not a disrespectful 'chad' who treats women like sexual objects. Instead he highly value them and individuals and stimulates himself instead through intellectual discussions with them, hence his insistence on finding virgin female partners with a high IQ (but slightly lower than him to emphasize his male superiority). At the time being evidence indicate James posses no female companion, at least a physical one, for he claims he is married to anime character Kumiko-chan. In a far fetched alternate reality fiction, James would be a musician or other boring things - but here he is a prospective game developer with a humble dream to work in Japan, self-learned in the art of gaming development and Japanese language. When the world turned upside down, James's way of life fell under threat as his home in the basement of his parents were destroyed and his parents killed. Hence his only source of income to buy manga, games, and tendies were gone. However, the EPIC Gamer revolution in Virgin Islands - James whose knowledge in gaming development and foreign cultures is great, was personally called in by a friend to aide the newborn society. Hence, James and his valuable skills took him to the position of foreign minister - where he is highly keen to acquaint and associate with foreign leaders, particularly beautiful pristine (and hopefully virgin) female leaders such as Lucina of Ylisse, Oda of Japan, and Stalin of Russia. With his gentleman like behavior: opening doors, pulling chairs, and tipping fedoras he will ensure good relations with other societies that can appreciate gamers. M'lady.

    Minister of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda
    Gurra


    In a darker timeline, Gurra is a soft spoken blond blue eyed boy from Sweden who played Minecraft all the time. In our world, Gurra WAS a soft spoken blond blue eyed boy from Sweden who played Minecraft all the time - one day, instead of playing alone in a small private multiplayer server with a bunch of complete losers, he took it to a massive 512 player server and began a series of Let's Play. His superior Swedish genes and accent, combined with the popularity of Minecraft among adolescent boys became an instant hit and Gurra is a world class star - the ideal person all gamers wanted to be. However, despite all his popularity and global strength - the SJWs would continue to proof that gamers are the most oppressed people on Earth. What was an inoccent prank show was twisted by fake leftist media into accusing Gurra of racism, sexism, fascism, and all SJW accusatory words - in a society where everyone is a sheep, the truth died and Gurra's career was destroyed. However, he found refuge in a small section of the society - one that had lived through oppression, one that would RISE UP and build a new society. As the world crumbled and a new gamer society arise, Gurra naturally chimed in - his natural charisma and capability of making game attractive to normies landed him in the position of Public Enlightenment and Propaganda. While NinjaCow dabs with memes from the darknet and Hopelitejoe takes over playgrounds - Gurra will continue to play Minecraft and Fortnite Let's Plays to seduce normies into the cause.

    TYONODO (with caps)

    In another universe, Tyonodo was a mere phase - soon shed away as the man formerly known as Tyonodo becomes a normie NPC by the name of Tyo. But in our world, still brimming with hope of a better society, Tyonodo is the final and superior form of Tyo. GAMERS RISE UP! BOTTOM TEXT​

    Spoiler A magic story :






    Nation: Draconic Thunder

    Spoiler :


    High Concept: Here Be Dragons

    The result of a hilarious typo in a summoning ritual, the Thunder is populated largely by dragons of wildly different sizes and shapes and other reptilian humanoids, such as the Dragonborn from the Forgotten Realms and the Argonians from Tamriel, to name just a few. The dragon's famous lust for gold has made them wealthy as well as giving them a special fusion of industry and arcane magic.

    Trouble: My Armor Is Like Tenfold Shields, My Teeth Are Swords, My Claws Spears, The Shock Of My Tail A Thunderbolt, My Wings A Hurricane, And My Breath Death!

    Dragons have a size and power to them that is dwarfed only by their massive egos. This self-importance has made them difficult to interact with diplomatically, and can sometimes lead to them being equal parts overconfident and stubborn.

    Stunt: A Dragon's Greatest Love
    +2 on Force actions specifically targeting the wealth or resources of an enemy.

    Stats:
    Covert: -1 (Okay so a dragon isn't the most subtle creature in the world, and we can't always rely on the Argonians to sneak around. Sue us.)
    Charm: 0 (I mean, if you're into that sort of thing...)
    Cunning: 1 (All these Dragons from all these different worlds have afforded us a breadth of cunning and plotting minds to use)
    Force: 1 (If you haven't caught on already, we have a LOT of dragons.)
    Knowledge: 0 (We're smart, but we prefer to take all the cool science instead of making our own. Usually.)
    Thrift: 2 (What's a dragon without his hoard of treasure? We're freakin' LOADED!)

    Units



    Smaug the Impenetrable
    "I am fire. I am...death."


    The scourge of Middle Earth, Dwarvenkind, and satirical conservative pundits, Smaug the Dragon Dread laid claim to the treasure in the Lonely Mountain for nearly two hundred years, only to lose his beloved wealth to a company of dwarven adventurers over the course of a poorly thought out film trilogy. Before his untimely death at the beginning of the third film thanks to a brave human archer and an idiot who thought it was a good idea to start the movie by killing the best character, he was transported to this world by the Lizzarding event, where he quickly threw in his lot with the other dragons.

    High Concept: The Last Fire Drake
    Trouble: Lust for Gold
    Primary Approach: Force
    Scale: Huge
    Stunt: Scourge of Dale - When a force attack results in a Succeed with Style, can forgo the boost and force the defender to take the mild consequence Desolation





    Paarthurnax
    "We were made to dominate. The will to power is in our blood. You feel it in yourself, do you not?"

    An odd specimen among the dragons to say the least, the Old One, as he is called, was summoned to this realm from a place called Tamriel, where the dragons did not lust for gold to the degree that most of dragonkind do. While Paarthurnax was at one point a friend of the humans and other small folk, he has since turned against humanity and thrown in his lot with dragonkind, allegedly following an encounter with a legendary hero who neglected his heroic duties, wreaked havoc throughout the north, and repeatedly refused to stop calling the Old One an Italian plumber. He and the dragons from his realm are unusual in that the words they speak are infused with powerful magic, giving them the ability to effectively scream magic at people, or whatever he said they do with it.

    High Concept: Master of the Thu'um
    Trouble: Ancient and Battle-Scarred
    Primary Approach: Cunning
    Scale: Large
    Stunt: Laas Yah Nir- +2 to cunning when attempting to discover hidden units





    Kuax Draqarushk

    "There was nothing you could have done against me, really. I'm simply better then you."

    A "lizardfolk" from the so-called Forgotten Realms (which he can still remember but that's neither here nor there), Kuax was once the prince of a powerful Kingdom and a warrior of some renown before a jealous rival staged a terrible accident, causing him to lose both legs and effectively disqualifying Kuax from the line of succession. Unable to fight as a warrior, Kuax took up the arcane arts and sought his revenge, pursuing the rival across the seas with the help of a rather dashing pirate before a burst of arcane energy summoned him and his rival to this world, whereupon he gleefully murdered the hell out of him. His desire for blood sated, Kuax has elected to work alongside the powerful dragons in thanks for helping him to end his hated rival, putting his tremendous knowledge of the arcane to use for the Thunder.

    High Concept: Lizard Wizard
    Trouble: Overwhelming Amounts of Smug
    Primary Approach: Knowledge
    Scale: Personal
    Stunt: Counterspell- Can spend a FATE point to gain +3 defense against magical attacks.




    Ridley

    *literally just straight up murders Mario and Megaman, Jesus Christ*

    An extraterrestrial space dragon, The Cunning God of Death was once the fearsome leader of the Space Pirates and the arch-nemesis of the legendary bounty hunter Samus Aran, clashing with her over many adventures of rapidly varying quality. While expected to be summoned years ago for the first IdIOT game (cut for being too big, apparently), Ridley's long-awaited arrival was incredibly well-received by the Draconic Thunder, and his leadership and combat prowess is expected to be a valuable asset for the dragon nation until they finally add Waluigi.

    High Concept: Space Dragon and his Space Pirates
    Trouble: Savage and Chaotic
    Primary Approach: Force
    Scale: Small
    Stunt: Consume Biomatter- Gain a free chance to downgrade a consequence upon a successful attack.

    Name:
    .Assembly of the Hands

    High Concept: Clan Representation

    Trouble: Limited Executive

    Primary Approach: Charm

    Scale: Personal (25 Hands including the First Hand)

    Background: the democratic warrior assembly model was a system devised long before the creation of UUC by first individual clans, then hordes and confederations. The UUC has adopted a system that focus on representing to a more pure function; clan members have direct ability to command the votes of the Hand. To allow representation each Hand has extra votes depending on population but a veto process can be set if an entire clan is regarded as opposed through the direct democratic process. The Assembly hence serves as both the instrument of governance and the means of diplomacy between the clans.

    High Concept: Gifted Facilitator

    Trouble: Hesitant Under Pressure

    Primary Approach: Thrift

A advocatate of strengthed diplomatic relations and expanding further the xenophila ethics of the UUC she could succeed the lizardfolk First Hand Lurhtussuarth Nernesjymmute from Clan Hurthi. Having now take the role of key facilitator of the Assembly the new First Hand has founded herself in a test as both the demonic invasion and the potential rise in other aggressive powers, along with the dangers the Clans natural face, may make her test her diplomatic potentials while witnessing the potential appointment of the Warchief to heelp defend the UUC.

Her valour made her a popular contender to succeed the chief Shunt Vrarral. Her policies have been to both strengthen the defences of Clan Kal and any fellow clans of the UUC in response to growing aggressions, while also serving in infrastructural development and in patronage of the arts. The troubles recently may see the need for a Warchief and Dhenez is perhaps the most popular candidate.
