Well my fellow Hearthlings, a brave new age is finally upon us. The sun sets on our tired old world, and rises on an unknown horizon, untread by man. The trees shiver in fear of the coming iron storm. The bears cower in their woodland nooks!
Well, with the half-arsed prose that this occasion requires aside, to the point!
What are we going to see unfold over the first few weeks, and months, of this new world? The specifics will remain to be seen, but I think we all know that first and foremost, there will be a rush as prepared players seek out good land for their bases to be. Many may well set up temporary bases so as to supply themselves with the necessary equipment and experience to push out even further, seeking to distance themselves from the annoyance of nosy no-gooders.
Be that as it may, what of the middle? What of Brodgar? As I have posted in another thread on this board, I would like to see some form of settlement near the RoB, which can serve as a place for newbies to be well-met and well-treated, and for people to come from their far flung settlements and trade. I would also like to see this place as an experiment in Hearthling democracy.
So, I call on you my good hearthlings, let us build a city of Brodgar! Let it outshine the Athens of yore in its splendorous boulevards and fine buildings!
The first step is simple, and starts in a few hours: Those people of good will, who want to see a democratic and welcoming city near (not encircling!) the RoB, and are willing to give civilization a chance rather than running off into the deep woods, please meet up with me.
The first thing is to stake out a nice spot, and gather necessary materials. One of us will need to claim the general area as an initial precaution, and add the others as kin. Over several days, we lay out the initial design of the city, and find as many members as we can to join us in out work. All of good heart are welcome. Troublemakers beware!
After that, we get a village totem up, and take our first vote on who will be Chieftan, who will be Lawspeaker. The Lawspeaker should be willing to actually start to write up some initial laws for the city, for all citizens to abide. These laws should be passed by majority vote.
That is more than enough detail for now. If you agree with the general aim of this post, and want to help, please PM me, or write in this thread. See you at the RoB!! Lets make H&H history!
Yes. Yes this is a fertile land and we will thrive. We will rule over all this land! And we will call it... this land!
