Another part of the series Dream Chasers. Although the series is not supposed to be chronological order, the Renaissance and the Age of Discovery were so interwoven within each other it just seemed legit.
During the Revolt, The Warrior Empire broke up, but the Merchant Empire decided to close off the trade routes, which were vital to the Government’s economy. After the Revolt, the now accepting Government decided they don’t need the Merchant Empire’s approval. They are sending explorers to get the spices they need.
The Government is split into several Kingdoms. The main ones are the Kingdoms of Abilamos, Kalilnd, Onomavudd, and Adweni. They are after the spices the Merchant Empire's closed off. Some people, Explorers, as they're called, are searching for an alternate route to the spices.
There were more reasons for the Explorers to explore. They included conquering new lands, finding gold, and spreading their beliefs.
The Kingdoms are bitter rivals. It is a race to become the strongest. Who will prevail?
Xavier Alvarado from the Kingdom of Abilamos (mon135, p. 1)
One reason why I started the Dream Chaser’s series is to spread appreciation for history. I will only be using France, the Netherlands, Spain, and England in this roleplay as the basis for the nations. I’m sorry Portugal! I love you! I have one for you later on and you do have a brief appearance here!
For purpose, what are they setting out for? Gold? Land? Spreading beliefs?
No perfect characters. Please.
When I mean bitter rivals, I mean they hate each other so much that they won't hesitate to hurt the other. There may be small bits of violence, but no death or anything too gory.
Max of one character per Kingdom.
I need a co-owner. If your are an advanced roleplayer, please ask me if you want to take this role. You basically take over all of my duties when I'm not around. You are even allowed to control my character.
If you have read all the rules, put "discover" in the other section.
Kingdoms and their background-
Abilamos (Spain): Abilamos started the so-called “Age of Discovery” by sending Gustavo Machado of the minor kingdom of Erelilla to search for a quicker route to the Merchant Empire more generous cousin, the Trader Empire, by sailing westward. Machado landed on an island of the continent Nydeatrem instead. Machado took the resources of the new land and put the natives into slavery. The King of Abilamos declared all of the land west of Abilamos and east of the Trader Empire as their, but the King of Erelilla thought otherwise. SO the two kingdoms made a treaty to divide all the lands.
Erelilla was focused on navigation and observation, but Abilamos was more ambitious and was sought after colonization and expedition.
Abilamos immediately set itself as the main power of the Age of Discovery by sending in waves of explorers to the lands of Nydeatrem and other neighbors. The ambitious explorers were set after gold, slaves, trade routes, and fame. The various explorers can be compared to as ruthless pirates, coming from the sea and destroying everything in their way with eyes thrity for gold and power. Many of the natives died from disease, malnutrition, and fatigue, so Abilamos brought in slaves from other plundered nations. In order to keep their territory, they will be more than willing to fight with Kalilnd and Adweni, who had lands in other part of Nydeatrem.
Kalilnd (France): Like Abilamos, Kalilnd hoped to find another westward path to the Trader Empire. Sadly, no such path existed, so Kalilnd had to settle in the middle of Nydeatrem. Abilamos was not hesitant to attack.
Despite these failures, Kalilnd succeeded with the fur trade industry with the surviving natives of Nydeatrem. Kalilnd mostly operated in the heart of the continent. Out of all the Kingdoms, Kalilnd had the best reputation among the natives.
Onomavudd (Netherlands): Onomavudd came in the game with Servaas Joncker sailing up a river and staking a claim to a certain section of Nydeatrem. Adweni took that piece of land away after a conflict. Since then, Onomavudd’s influence has died down.
Adweni (England): Adweni came in late in the game, even though Jervis Bradford made an earlier attempt of exploration. That attempt was cut short and Adweni became focused on domestic issues.
Later, various religious groups escaped to Nydeatream to escape persecution in Adweni. Adweni’s interest in exploration piped up when they heard of the riches from Abilamos’s newly acquired territory and plundering of one of Abilamos’s ships, which was filled to the brim with gold. Abilamos felt intimidated by Adweni’s new power and the two became bitter rivals.
First attempts of settlement failed due to territorial natives. Abilamos then sent ships to attack Adweni but Abilamos lost the battle. Adweni became the new naval power and Abilamos influence started to decline.
The Adweni government believed that colonization would become too expensive, but join-stock companies that would provide government funds and persecuted religious groups sailed to Nydeatrem. Adweni was the most influential of the Kingdoms in colonization.
