  1. The Colonies, The beginning of America. This was a great time, a time of a new nation being born, the beginning, of the greatest nation of all time. This time period is romantically known as the exodus of persecuted pilgrims daringly exploring lands never before seen by European eyes, and taming the savage land so that they may thrive as their own, free of the tyranny of the Roman Catholics and Anglicans. This time is famously known for the first Thanksgiving, when the Indians came with food and dined along with the Pilgrims, and they lived peacefully together.

    But this is not true, far from it. The Pilgrims were a foreign invader, along with the Puritans. They came from nowhere and possessed for them what was of the spirits for no known reason, and defend it fiercely. They practice customs far removed from what you knew, and they take what they want, and refuse to give it back, preferring to kill, rather than share. Worse still, the White man spreads like a plague, and poison those you know and love by their very presence. You don't know what these things are, but what you do know, is that they bring death and destruction to wherever they roam, and you must somehow find a way to make them return from where they came, or risk losing all know and love through their corrupting touch.

    The Savages though, they live to their namesake. They lie and steal and kill without remorse, from anyone, to even their own kind. They practice demonic customs, and may be the demons that book talks of. They scalp your friends, burn your homes, and lie in wait, until your guard is let down, to destroy all you know and love. They speak odd tongues, possibly cursing you through their own demon ways. To you, they are more like demons than human, and you know that you must hold steadfast, or return to the persecution you left in the first place.

    White Man, White Land. Savage Man, Savage Land.

    HISTORIC BACKGROUND


    General History: Was sent into the woods by his father early in the day and got lost, came back after a day. He came back with many scars but most noticeably a large number of scars across his shoulders and back. He also dragged several wolf carcasses behind him. After that day he lived up to his fathers title of Big Wolf, as his father dwarfed many in the village in size and himself had killed several wolves himself one night. Grey Wolf became a prominent member of the tribe afterwards, leading several hunts and being a well respected member of the community during decisions.
     
  3. going to make my character soon. Also, I plan for people grouped together to make group collabs via the conversation system, to keep the posts low, so that the RP doesn't get bogged down and boring to read for anyone else reading. You are to make posts in the first person, and the different perspectives of the event or scenerepresented through tabs, showing the same scenes from the character's different angles. What do you think of this?

    • I see a white man.
    • I see a savage

  8. I'd love to make a Native American female x]
     
  9. Absolutely go for it.
     
  10. What should I be putting for her occupation? Can she be a warrior?
     
  11. Though I'm not terribly versed in the gender roles of Native American Men and Women I do believe the fighters were men unless a village was attacked. But I could imagine there were a few exceptions.

    HISTORIC BACKGROUND


    General History: Because she's a woman Nahuel was first put to work with the other women; taught how to take care of children, her future husband as well as learning about herbs that could heal... or kill. Nahuel felt that while these things are extremely important to learn, fighting was what she was made for. And so Nahuel had a few of the men in the village secretly train her when they could. When she built up the courage, Nahuel challenged a warrior and held her ground. Nahuel used her speed and smaller size to her advantage, after taking a few blows she was able to bring him down. While many of the women still look down on her for wishing to become a warrior, she stopped paying attention to their stares and enjoyed the feeling of being able to fight for her people.





    Is there anything I should change?
