  • Going to post the first round tonight!

    @Knights-of-the-Five-Kingdoms Hi all, I'm going to post the 1st Round pairings tonight, so please get your Knight and introduction post up as soon as you can.

    @B_Black and @Kersus I don't see your knights posted yet. Please post ASAP.

    And everyone except @Gombar and @Aaron need to post an introduction in the Tourney of Winterhaven thread. It can be short. Just something describing your knight a bit.

    @Mike said in Questions:

    As for relationships, are you thinking AW style? I'm leaning toward no for that and imagine you're all meeting for the first time as newly dubbed knights. Though, perhaps relationships develop in play? What do you think? On the one hand, cool for questing. On the other, a heavy lift for a player who might just joust and call it a day.

    Yeah, something like this, but maybe more specific and geared toward adding flavor (or a reason to quest together) to a longer campaign: a family enemy (+ to attack?) ; or personal enemy (this one is probably best developed in play); or someone you're related to by marriage (+ to parley with); your lands are adjacent; etc. Didn't mean to make it too complicated for just a joust.

    Check this out and lemme know what you think: https://community.nerdlouisville.org/topic/1694/campaign-play

  • Campaign Play

    If you're just here for the tourney, you do not need to participate in this thread.

    Knights who do not participate in this thread are from a distant land and no one knows them other than vague whispers of their past glories.

    If you do intend to eventually go questing (doesn't have to be any time soon, doesn't have to be the first quest, but maybe at some point), please participate in this thread.

    The Campaign Structure

    As I noted elsewhere, the campaign play will go like this:

    1. Tourney
    2. Quest
    3. Tourney
    4. Quest

    Alternating like that over time.

    Tourney: Many knights, including those who do not participate in campaign play, usually with prizes (real life and in-game)

    Quest: A short, episodic play-by-post where I call for knight participants and then we play out a brief scenario using the knights you created for the tournaments. If you played in the AW game, it'd be about the length of a "session" (or less).

    All XP from tournaments and quests combine.

    History

    As in, history with other knights, past relationships, encounters, etc.

    If you are participating in campaign play, reply to this thread asking some of the questions below (3-5).

    Other knights may answer your questions. They don't have to. But, they might choose to. And, you should answer questions another knight poses.

    The only rule is, you may only answer one question another knight poses. But, the two of you may feel free to elaborate upon it. Though, try to collaborate with each other by saying, "Yes, but..." or "Yes, and..." instead of "No..."

    You may ask up to 3-5 questions from the following list. Though, you may answer as many other knights questions (so long as you answer one question per knight).

    When answering questions, try to develop new webs. For example, if Sir Kagen answers your question about neighboring lands and he poses the same question to everyone, don't answer that same question. We know that already. Instead, answer his question about fighting together in battle.

    The Questions

    • Which of you fought shoulder-to-shoulder with me in a battle fought between the Five Kingdoms?

    • Which of you fought on the other side, against me, in a battle fought between the Five Kingdoms?

    • Which of you are related to me by blood?

    • Which of you are related to me by marriage?

    • Which of you belong to a family with a long-held rivalry to mine?

    • Which of you belong to a family with a long-held friendship to mine?

    • Which of you have lands neighboring mine?

    • Which of you have lands far from mine, though you visit often?

    • Which of you share a hated foe with me?

    • Which of you share a beloved mentor with me?

    • Which of you have bested me in single combat, though showed me mercy?

    • Which of you owe me a debt that you have yet to pay?

    • Which of you do I owe a debt I have yet to pay?

    • Which of you have I sworn an oath to?*

    • Which of you have sworn an oath to me?*

    • Which of you have I traveled the Kings' Road with for as long as a season or more at a time?

    • Which of you has a sibling I have fallen in love with?

    • Which of you has a sibling who has fallen in love with me?

    • Which of you have witnessed a miracle of The Three together with me?

    • Which of you have heard whispers of The Old Ones in the land around us with me?

    *You've sworn to: fight at their side when they call on you, back their word when they require it, accompany you on some quest or pilgrimage, etc. Define it when you answer the question, together with the knight you answer.

    If you have another question you want to ask, run it by me first.

    Lands

    If you are a Banner Knight or Lordly Knight, you must determine which kingdom your lands sit in and what holdings they look after. I will create a new thread for this closer to the resolution of the tourney.
