People tend to forget that during the early periods of history, many civilizations lived nomadic lifestyles, wandering from one place to another. Whether they did this because resources were always scarce or because it was their way of life varies from civilization to civilization. However, all nomadic cultures were built around being mobile and as such, they often carried their houses with themselves and they placed great emphasis on the warriors of their culture. In a nomadic culture, nearly every man was a trained warrior who could hold his own against enemies. Your exercise is to create a nomadic civilization. You can either invent one completely on your own, or you can use the follow questions as help. Why is the nomadic civilization always travelling? What kind of homes do the nomads have? Do the nomads have a religion? If so, what is it like? Do the nomads have animals with them? If so, what kind of animals do they have? What do the nomads do? Are they primarily warriors, animal herders or maybe even some sort of mercenaries? How are these nomads viewed by other civilizations? Is their way of life considered normal? Is there anything in particular this civilization is very famous for? What does their society look like? Do they place warriors above everything else? Are they only composed of warriors who happen to do other things as well, or do they assign roles amongst themselves? Do these nomads have a leader or are they tribes who just happened to band together? How long do these nomads stay in one place? Is there a specific time limit or do they just move on when they have exhausted the resources of the territory? How do the people live their everyday lives when the nomads are settled down? How do they live it when they are travelling? What would it take for these nomads to settle down?
