Knowledge Per Race & City (WIP)

Knowledge Per Race
As per discussion / suggestion - I'm going to put together here a list of the races with suggested "starter knowledge" which members of that race will usually have. If you have a Sev'ryn raised amongst humans, it might be more appropriate to go with the human knowledge or a mixture of both. I'd like to keep the number of knowledges given per race the same and, at the moment, I'm randomly going with 5 but I'll see. None of these will be skill knowledge. Any suggestions, gratefully received, but if I don't put it here, I'm never going to start it!

100% in support of this! I have started to edit both of your lists with addition of cities/races I don't moderate but know pretty well in order to push this along! Thanks, Pegasus for starting this!
Also, I know it's common sense but seeing as we award Knowlegde like "Race: X" I think that should be a straight up given added to each of them! Haha!

Added some suggestions in your post under "Yludih". Any of those can be substituted for the various race knowledges.

@Whisper: Thanks for that! I've edited a couple to make them 5 and 5 as I'd like to keep the numbers the same. Would you check them please and let me know if you're happy?

@Whisper: I don't know, I think that we can assume that if you are a race, you know it exists? It seems like a waste of one of the five, really? I'll go with the flow, or we can just assume that humans know what humans are. I guess the other thing is we could make it a sixth?

@Rumour: Thanks for that! I've edited them to five, but tried to keep them so that the information is in there. Let me know what you think?

@Golem: Love it - thank you! Yes, I agree, the Yludith who has been pretending to be an Aukari would know some Aukari stuff. Great idea.

And thank you to whoever put Mortalborn in there - excellent point. :)

I know it's a given haha! But if we give out Knowledge for other races in the structure of "Race: X" then maybe make it 6 because to me it just feels weird if you have a knowledge about another race but not your own!

I might also suggest Knowledge for languages..?


And lol, no worries!

Ok - six it is ~ works for me.

I thought about this and want to avoid it, really. The reason for that is twofold:
1. I don't really want any of this to be skills knowledge ~ but more knowledge which is fleshing out a pc's world.
2. The pc can speak what they speak - if PC A wants to take linguistics / improve a language and PC B doesn't, by giving them language knowledge we are advantaging PC A over PC B, which doesn't sit well for me. This is true for any skill knowledge and is why I feel that's better left to the CS reviewer and the rewards there.

And lol, no worries!
Yeah - they're a funny ole kind of mixed race. Good catch :)

Knowledge Per Race & City (WIP)

Well,
let's see what we can throw out there...

Aukari would probably know that Etzos and Sirothelle are hostile.
Avriel know there's a standing military alliance with Nashaki. Perhaps a developing hatred of Raskalarn for invading.
They may have a bit more info on the state of the invasion than most races.
Biqaj Seafaring Legends could include any of the odd phenomena in the Orm'Del Sea.
Mer would undoubtedly know these things as well.
Eidisi would know a cultural hatred of Naerikk and Audrae.
Is the Ellune "Legend of Treid's Demise" referring to the old Audrae betrayal, or the new global event of his body exploding into shards which are now falling to Idalos here and there?

The Biqaj, Mer and Tunawa would know of Mastes Maze.

I'll leave Ithecal, Lotharro and Mer to those who know them better.

Naerikk also know of "The Gift", the defensive AoE stun ability.

Qi'Ora probably know of most of the special locations in the Hotlands.
Tunawa should have most any herbal, drug, med or poison lore available.
Should the Yludih know about Hotlands Glass? It could well be that rumors of some sort might have gotten out into their community.
_______________________________________________
Some Etzos suggestions (like Rumor, I've starred my top 5):
*Enemy cities: Sirothelle and Rhakros (could be two separate ones, but I'd be inclined to pair them up)
Allied city: Hiladreth
Friendly Cities: Uthaldria, Ne'haer, Argos (again...)
Gems of Idalos? (It IS the export they are famous for)
*History of the Founding of Etzos
*Etzos: Culture and Factions
Etzos: Military Structure
*Etzos' Outlying Cities (I'm working on this)
*Surrounding Lands and Features


Some Athart suggestions (again...)
*Immortal: Syroa
Mortalborn: Valtharn (I'm unsure of this, since the people don't really know what she's like)
Military Alliance with Nashaki
*Slavery as a Cultural and Economic Basis
*Windshear Naval Force
*Athartian Slave Raiders
*Laws and The Pit of Reflection
The Forest of Stone - avriel sector (if they're NOT an avriel)
The Human Sector (If they're NOT a human)


You know, perhaps the human racial knowledges could be additional choices from these city lores, when they are human cities (not like, say, Desnind or Treidhart).
Just a thought.
