Re: OOC Discussion
Sure. Post up your version of the Hegemony's attributes.

Re: OOC Discussion
Xaran, I posted your attributes in Council Votes. I do think what you proposed is a little too min-maxed. Remember, these people are basically humans who have thrived on an alien world with it's own flora and fauna.

What's your reasoning behind such a high research and construction score?

Re: OOC Discussion
Harbinger- Would you please put a points cost to the following possible starting perk.

Alien signal detected- Due to a recent advancement in technology we have uncovered an alien signal. We have no knowledge if it is a warning, a welcome, or just old alien entertainment reruns, but it has given our scientists plenty of research opportunities for the future and a clue as to where other life exists.

Re: OOC Discussion
2 points. It could be useful, but it might also not be that useful.

Re: OOC Discussion
With the Ancient Ruins discovered, these people primarily chose their scientists and engineers to go study them.

Re: OOC Discussion
Well sure, we're talking about people surviving on an alien planet. Did every other facet of society suffer?

[3] is basically something your species bad at.
[4] would be below average.
[5] is average
[6] is above average
and so on
[10] is "Natural mastery. From the dawn of time, even without modern tools your civilization has made continuous great strides in this subject and created marvels scarcely believeable. Your people keep coming up with concepts and methods other races find difficult to replicate with similar technology or at times even properly comprehend."

Remember, these are humans from earth who have been on another planet for a few hundred years.


[3] Economy & trade: Your civilization is nearly hopeless with money and trade. They can barely manage a global economy and a working interstellar economy may be beyond them.
[3] Diplomacy: Quick to anger, prone to faux pa and scandals. It's a wonder they ever formed a unified government.
[3] Espionage & counter-intelligence: They make terrible spies and are bad at ferreting out subversion. Their society is rife with invisible corruption.
[3] Space/Naval Warfare: They really don't understand anything about Naval Warfare, much less Space combat. They have oceans, but apparently didn't go beyond basic 17th century tactics. You lack the understanding to make effect space weapons, though through trial and error you may stumble on something useful.
[3] Ground/Infantry Warfare: At best, your civilization is capable of mustering militarized police. More often simply inexperienced militia. You lack the understanding required to know what sort of organization and designs make for a good military.

This is more or less how that will look. That many 3s combined will lead to a veeeery specialized civilization that will hope they never encounter an alien race more advanced then they are.

Re: OOC Discussion
So everyone has proposed a possible attribute distribution. That is all in the Council Votes thread for now. You are free to discuss and revise as necessary. Tomorrow morning I'll call for a vote and we'll pick one.

Re: OOC Discussion
Hey everyone, I'm looking forward to this.

I guess I'll start the discussions for the first set of proposals. After looking at the other proposals and the GM's earlier comments on this thread, I am going to lean my support for Analyst's proposal. Among the three, Analyst's proposal had the most 'balanced' distribution of points. So what do you guys think?
