For decades, the so called "civilised" in the east have yearned to colonise the far-off shores of the west, where an azure sky reigns over miles of lush jungle and open flats. The west is a world of danger, of treachery, of beauty...A world ripe for exploitation as the settlers arrive...
Welcome, cardsmith community, to the third worldbuilder contest! This is the third worldbuilder contests, after Khare
In this contest, we aim to create a story around the given map by leading off the last card posted, writing a lore blurb to explain how this card fits in the world and links to the last card.
As you can see, we are exploring the city of Flint, a far off outpost of an exotic, somewhere west of the Great Cities. The site where this city now rests was once the place of a great bay, the people free to do what they wished, with no common laws. Yet now, settlers have built a mighty merchant town, dealing brutally with the original owners of the land. Please lead off this card and lore: Area:
Governor's Mansion Main Focus:
The Governor Lore:
A prosperous merchant in the more savoury parts of the world, Governor Torq left his ancestral home to sail the world, conquering far off shores and converting the uncivilised savages to a more respectful way of life. Naturally, his conquest did not go without fierce resistance yet, as one often does when leading an army of faithful crusaders, soon managed to persuade them they were wrong. Now, settled down in the Shores of Hathalborn, he has achieved all he could of ever wanted - people to rule, servants to be served by, and safety to cherish.
Yet, his home that has seemed to be safe for almost a decade has recently become under threat, as the "savages" from neighboring territories, the "natives", lead raids, attacking his home and leaving a trail of destruction in his wake. Will his civilisation fall? Is the might of respctability more powerful than that of chaos and destruction? It's your choice...
