i wish in civ instead of founding cities with settlers you had to conquer and convert barbarian tribes into city states until you develop the tech for territories and only then you could start making settlers and introducing nearby high influenced city states into your empire. it really bothers me to imagine my barbarian king like gathering a group of settlers to find a city on some untapped fertile land nearby
The Chantry teaches us that it is the hubris of men which brought the darkspawn into our world. The mages had sought to usurp Heaven. But instead, they destroyed it. They were cast out, twisted and cursed by their own corruption. They returned as monsters, the first of the darkspawn.
IKE: Kyle talks a lot about it. It’s a favorite among their batch. IKE: With our batch, it’s either you like it or you don’t. A lot of the Asian kids aren’t too fond of it, but they’re okay with it as long as you don’t rub it in your face like the Vamp kids did with Twilight. RUBY: The older kids are doing a LARP based around it, aren’t they?
IKE: My ‘ship’ is apparently stationed at the playground and they get to fight my pirate lackeys. And Firkle’s some sort of Viking. I dunno. IKE: He’s part of the Goths’ ensemble though, and they ‘ally’ themselves with whichever kingdom assists them.
IKE: Younger sis- sorry, younger brother of the beautiful Princess Kenny, who will be played by, obviously, Kenny the cat. IKE: Prince Karen is the kindest prince in all the land, wielding the rapier of legend, Queenlasanne. She’s supposed to be co-rulers with Tweek? I forgot how much they changed the storyline for the LARP. RUBY: Tweek didn’t want to be the Wizard King, so he made the barbarian the king. Barbarian King Tweke, the Incorruptible. IKE: Oh yeah, right. It’s really funny how the barbarian’s name in the book is Tweke; it’s like it was a role made for Tweek. IKE: … Do you have a role, Ruby?
IKE: Rose Hood? RUBY: Feldspar’s sister. Marshwalker knows her. IKE: Oh, yeah, I remember her! The younger sibling of Feldspar, she lived with the wolves that raised Stan’s familiar, Sparky, because people were out to get Feldspar, and he didn’t want her to get hurt. IKE: Marshwalker, owing Feldspar a favor, secretly led him to the wolves, and they raised Rose while Feldspar did all sorts of shit, trying to throw them off Rose’s trail. RUBY: Rose decided to follow in her brother’s footsteps when she grew up… and became Rose Hood, the Wild One. A rogue with the heart of a wolf. IKE: She’s so cool, how could I have forgotten about her character? IKE: Wait, Feldspar is gonna be played by Craig the cat. So they’re gonna pretend he isn’t a cat for the LARP so you have a brother? RUBY: … Most likely.
