TNW Interest Check?
« on: March 03, 2019, 11:41:07 AM »
I wanna get the prefix The New World Order back up and running but make several changes to the group. Essentially the history is still the same - they're trying to escape from their past life - but they become nomads in a prairie and basically survive off of ranching, hunting, cultivating their own crops and becoming a travelling merchant to surrounding groups.

Spoiler: IDEAS • show
Ideas for future:
- Travelling in the plains, hot and humid in the summer but cold and harsh in the winter due to increased wind speeds.
- Plan to one day convert the prairies for agricultural purposes (due to rich soil) and to create pastures to ranch livestock (cattle). Also bison hunting.
- Natural hazards include dust storms, droughts during yearly heat waves, thunderstorms & torrential rains and tornados
- Will travel between two locations in the prairie for pasture land: one is an abandoned trailer park that was once used by settlers in the prairie in the fall/winter time as it is warmer there for the group, the other will be several travelling wagons positioned nearby a river and a small woodland area for fishing and hunting in the summer/spring as they will spend that part of the year as travelling homesteaders.
- Wild animals include: armadillos, bats, bears, beavers, bighorn sheep, boars, bobcats, bison, cougars, coyotes, crows, deer, eagles, elk, foxes, goats, gophers, hawks, wild horses, mules, owls, prairie dogs, raccoons, rabbits, rattlesnakes, skunks, vultures & wolves
- One day they will begin to develop into a marketplace where their travelling wagons are placed to attempt to start trades between other groups. Items will include food cultivated from their homesteading (fruit, veg, dairy, meat and fish products), live animals (including tamed horses), other items such as stolen clothing/toiletries/scrap metal/ jewellery etc
- Perhaps one day they will be able to set up some sort of windmill system to try create some sort of sustainable energy (in the long term) especially since they live in a harsh environment with very windy plains.
- Rich deposits of coal are found in the prairie; maybe in the long term they begin to mine for coal to trade.

I'm hoping that, with enough interest for a group like this, that we can make it an Unofficial Group at some point rather than a prefix. Also, we are going to be changing the name from The New World Order to Bluestem Prairie so that is all fun and good??
