Stoneage RP interest check
I really want to create a game taking place in a stone age setting and I'm looking for people who want to join. It would take place in a fictional setting based on the European Pleistocene (a pre-historic period) - the great ice sheet of the permafrost is located a few miles north of our camp and is slowly withdrawing, the summers are getting longer, and the herds will soon come north to enjoy the fresh grass left behind by the spring floods.
Our tribes diligence and respect for the animals have been rewarded by the gods. For years now, fish and game have been plentiful, and they have been spared from foul weather and flash floods. Their small community is thriving, and trade and relationships are good with their neighbors.
But around this time of year, the Others are starting to come back to the north. The Others - the creatures who look like broad-faced people, but speak like an animal, and are strong enough to wrestle a wolf and be victorious. Though they keep to themselves and rarely show hostility, people have started to view them as a threat who steal their game, kill their dogs, and venture into their territories. And with the rising conflicts between man and neanderthal, where will that leave the rising numbers of half-bloods, seemingly almost confused about what they are, that have formed their own groups deep in the woods?
I'm debating the possibility of incorporating a magic system that will be based on spirit worship and what we know of the old nature religions, but I am not certain. Never the less, this will be a world where the gods are very real, and can kill you or your tribe with floods, disease, fire, cold, predators and whatever else they wish, at whatever whim they happen have. You will treat them right, because you live a dangerous life here, and you have survived so far due to the fact that you can rely on your tribe.
