Campaign Play


  • Judge

    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.

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

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

    Whos rumor of the mother I had an affair with?

    @Praetorius We were tutor by the same mentor for years, learning the art of battle and what it was ment to being a great knight

    @Aaron Sir Gabriel has stood shoulder to shoulder in a great battle

    @Judge_John Sir Axle owes a debt to Sir Gabriel for taking pushiment for something Sir Axle did to keep him in good graces with his father. What did you do that your father would have been furious about? This action got Sir Gabriel sent away to be tutored by a mentor.

    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 have bested me in single combat, though showed me mercy?

    Whos rumor of the mother I had an affair with?

    No, the rumor is you've had an affair with everyone's mother. If you want a specific mother, we need to see it in play after you taunt people on the jousting field.

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

    Sir Ullister fought side-by-side, which makes the matchup with Sir Morgadáns awkward.

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

    Sir Axell sister is in love with Sir Morgadans, but he doesn't approve....

    • Which of you have lands neighboring mine?

  • Judge

    Don't forget to answer other knights' questions too, y'all.


  • Knight

    @Judge_John Maybe Sir Axell, who's also from the Shimmering Southlands, could've fought alongside Sir Morgadáns or has his lands neighboring mine?


  • Knight Fauxrunner Judge

    @GabrielUY my sister is in love with Sir Morgadans. But Axell doesn't approve....

    @Gombar House Foley has a long-held friendship with House Aragon.

    Which of you belong to a family with a long-held rivalry to House Foley?

    EDITED: because I answered too many questions for one knight


  • Knight Fauxrunner Judge

    Whoops... I just noticed we are supposed to only answer one question per knight.

    I'm going to go with my sister is in love with Sir Morgadans, so we have some spice if we meet in the joust! :smiling_face_with_horns:

    The goal being you have lots of connections with lots of knights.

    Right. I get that. But we have a bit of turnover with the Knights right now. Beginning Knights who were unhorsed might get discarded and it would be irrelevant to make bonds with them. Or not?

    You and Sir Ullister fought side-by-side, which makes the matchup with Sir Morgadáns awkward.

    Which of you have I sworn an oath to?
    Which of you share a hated foe with me?
    Which of you have witnessed a miracle of The Three together with me?


  • Knight

    @Judge_John Maybe a friendly knight can lend some gold to those unhorsed to continue


  • Knight Fauxrunner Judge

    @GabrielUY said in Campaign Play:

    I had the thought that we could give out some extra armor or horses (for those that have it to give) to those that wanted to go on a quest?


  • Judge

    If you guys don't mind, please edit your original questions to add the answers so people know who has answered what.


  • Knight Fauxrunner Judge

    Here are my questions:

    • Which of you belong to a family with a long-held rivalry to House Foley?
    • Which of you do I owe a debt I have yet to pay?

    Sir Morgadans has lands neighboring House Foley, in the Shimmering Southlands!
    Sir Axell's sister, Gennifer, is in love with Sir Morgadans. Sir Axell does not approve.

    I have a couple points to make on this, but let's discuss in Game Discussion so as not to clutter this thread.


  • Knight

    @Judge_John House Carballidos lands neighbors House Foley's :D

    Have the physician take a look at that cough Sir Axell


  • Knight

    @Judge_John Ah, should we decide the courtship of your sister in a joust?
