Birth of Nations


The Rebirth











  • Introduction




    Welcome to Birth of Nations, a hybrid RPG where you not only roleplay as your nation but pick actions and make choices that will decide their fate. There have been three previous iterations of Birth of Nations with each getting more complex as we moved forward. We have now decided to revert to a less is more approach meaning that players can focus more on the roleplaying aspect and less on the game mechanics. That being said it can be daunting when you go over to the rules page because of the amount of text involved but that is more to help explain everything and to answer all questions. However, please do not be put off by it. As long as you have a basic understanding of the rules we are more than ready to help in the Discord server with any questions you may have.

    The aim of the game is to build your nation and to see how it grows amidst the hopefully, many other player nations. Player interactions are encouraged and whether you want to form alliances or start a war or may something in between, they are all viable options in this game.




    Meet your staff




    TrekTek: Lord of All, creator of Birth of Nations and all round sound guy! (This wasn't written by Trek, he isn't that smug)

How detailed would you like a race to be? Cause I'd like to play Ogre's in this and I've got like a whole doc of lore on standby
As long as it fits within the small amount of lore that's been given out about, then you can be as detailed or not as you like. To be fair the more detailed you are, the better personal quests Trek can design for you.

Absolutely what Sully said. As long as it fits into the tiny amount of lore that I've placed up, the more information on your race and nation, the better. There will be personalized nation quests and events so additional info on the part of the player makes things even better for me. :-)

Awesome, btw the Ogre military force and every day to day life requires two things


A cold mountainous area with lots and lots of dangerous megafauna, I suspect that you can fulfill the first part and not the second, to which I say that I can submit and write up the lore for each monster and don't worry I understand balancing, I suspect every race will have some kind of natural advantages over one another


Humans have versatility

Elves have marksmanship and swiftness

Dwarves have raw strength and their enginnering


etc etc

Time for the Humans to rise. The Kingdom of Cadia will get the torches ready
I'll pm you guys the discord link so we can chat more details about your nations. :-)

Though I am interested in this, I do have a concern.

Where exactly does the roleplaying aspect come into this? Your OP reads much more like a manual for a strategy game, and though I love strategy games, I do want to roleplay. I want to be able to create characters, write their personal journeys, spin narratives, form relationships with other nations and their characters beyond trade and alliances, and so on. Will we get to do all these sorts of things?

You are able to as a free action once per turn, explore any area of the map that you have a unit on. Sometimes this leads to grand adventures that play out on discord which can end up with you finding out more about the world around you, your own nation, or even inviduals and groups.

Also when you interact with other players in diplomacy, that interaction happens in character on the discord as well.

Each turn, time passes in the world and events human and will happen. You are building your nation, role-playing its growth through the stories you write and are intertwined with the events that happen.

In essence, you will be able to roleplay in this game. The rulebook is more just so that there is an outline for combat and building. But I can assure you that RP is first and foremost what I focus on the most.:-)

"At least my mom took me to NASCAR!"
Cadia? Oh yea your the 40K guy, Im so sorry dude I got so wrapped up in my personal life I completely forgot I was interested in your roleplay, is there anyway I can still join?!
Sorry, too much lost interest man. I might try again in the future, but if you really want to support me I have a Vietnam War Rp looking for people
 
In alot of fanasty settings people end up making elves just "Hippie humans who live a long time" which I personally feel is a diservice

Warhammer elves are a great example of how to do them justice
