Out of character stuff:
Who lives here?
This is the heartland of the inquisitive, fun-loving, nature-honouring Kypiq! Other menn are not forbidden, but are rare.
How would we be ‘ruled’?
With a light touch. Unless a person is actively destroying the land or what lives on it, they shouldn’t need to see their elders at all. Your elders will respect your right to do for yourself if you respect theirs. (One completely out of character note: Barring further information, I intend to lock the county land table and only allow land use that I believe is in character with the region. This is not to cramp the opportunities of residents, but to prevent clearcutting, mass-farming, hunting*, and other activities which are incompatible with a healthy forest. *according to Kypiq :P)
What would we do here?
Any of the professions available! My current guess is that most residents gather forage, and that though professions like ‘constable’ and ‘diplomat’ and ‘performer’ are listed, they are probably part-time, or they travel between settlements, or even between counties. How much law-enforcement does a community of 30 souls need? And how much entertainment? Probably most inhabitants are multi-role. They gather as needed, then pursue their other interests.
Are you going to keep those names?
Maybe. When we actually see and interact with the land, different names may occur. ‘County’ is in brackets pending a determination of what Kypiq call such things.
Are you recruiting?
No! I have described the area out of simple courtesy so that people may know what they are getting into, or what to avoid. :P I hope there are some people who area attracted to the idea and add their own touch, make their own stories.
With thanks for your interest,
Taryl, leader of Silvervine Barrows
