Hello, and welcome.

As the setting of Dune: House Maccabees is complex and extensive, prospective players should be at least somewhat familiar with the Dune novels and adaptations. With that in mind, please answer the following questions:
  1. Have you read any of the original trilogy of novels? (Dune, Dune Messiah, Children Of Dune)

  2. Have you read any of the second trilogy? (God Emperor Of Dune, Heretics Of Dune, Chapterhouse: Dune)

  3. Have you read either of the sequels (Hunters Of Dune, Sandworms Of Dune) or the Heroes Of Dune duology (set between the second and third books of the original trilogy)?

  4. Have you read any of the prequel series? (Legends Of Dune, Schools Of Dune, Prelude To Dune, Caladan Trilogy)

  5. Have you seen any of the film or screen adaptations (Dune (1984), Frank Herbert's Dune (2000), Frank Herbert's Children of Dune (2003), Dune (2021)) or the 2013 documentary Jodorowsky's Dune?

  6. Do you own copies of any of these books from the published game line? (Dune: Adventures In The Imperium [please grab the quickstart rules here and the setting summary here if not], The Great Game: Houses Of The Landsraad, Agents Of Dune, Masters Of Dune, Sand And Dust: The Arrakis Sourcebook)

  7. Have you played Dune: Adventures In The Imperium before? Any other 2D20 System games? Have you played any games using the FATE ruleset? Powered By The Apocalypse? Forged In The Dark?

  8. Did you read any or all of the reference links posted to the GPIA thread?

  9. Do you have a concept in mind for your character? Outline that concept in a paragraph or two, if so.

  10. Which household faction would that character support: the progressive religious faction, the traditional religious faction, or the radicals and zealots?

The progressives are the pro-Atreides faction, equivalent to the historical Sadducees who embraced Hellenism over the traditional Jewish practices. More modern in their ideals and treatment of their people.

The traditionalists are the autocratic faction, equivalent to the historical Pharisees who rejected Hellenism and insisted upon a return to traditional practices. Fairly standard sense of privilege and entitlement.

The radicals and fanatics are the separatist and revolutionary factions, equivalent to the historical Essenes, Samaritans, Zealots, and other fringe and/or splinter groups. Some promote religious change, others secular change, some both.
