Greetings leaders of the world,
Fuirnes-Eil ean, the island state of the Be um-Sgeit he, is ruled by highly skilled followers of Minerva, Goddess of Knowledge. The Iron Island, so named due to the massive deposits of metals and coal, is a nexus of trade in the far south east. The ruler of Fuirnes-Eilean and the
Beu m-Sgeithe has constructed a large armada dedicat ed to coastal defense and shipping. He has recently sent out a missive to all civilizations in the known world that condenses down to:
"We welcome all members of this great lan d who seek to share and learn knowledge under the watchful guise of Minerva, Goddess of Knowledge. The island opens its ports to travelers who
wish to share such gifts. Travel here on your way to the south or west. Stop, trade, sample the local food. Join our Minervian Summit where all the Clans of this land may discuss and spread knowledge."
"This month marks the fifth annual Minervian Summit. The goal of this summit is to further knowledge in the free world. We will select a Master Skill and with the kno wledge provided by all participants, we will enhance the usefulness of that skill. The previous Minervian Summits saw the spreading of the knowledge of Mining, Refining and Combat throughout the world."
" We have heard rumblings about the falseness of religion and our seers are telling us through their study of the ancient books that the deities and entities of the old world will soon walk among us. Those heretics who seek to silence knowledge in this world will be cast aside and trodden under the enlight ened feet of the erudites. Because of the need to study the past, to understand the present and to see the future, our Summit has been delayed but make no mistake, the 818 Minervian Summit is being held now. 819 will know its own place in the last half of the coming year."
How this works:
The skill that is selected the most out of all the skills is deemed the Master Ski ll. This is announced to the world of TribeNet via TribeNews on Turn 1/ 819. Additionally, all future Clans that join Tribe Net will start with +1 skill level in that skill (maximum 7).
By the time turn 2/819 orders are due, every clan should email
FuirnesEil ean@gma il.com with a single Tribe number#### (such as 0489 or 5228, etc). Within the next 2 turns, the GM will add +l Skill Level to this skill on that Tribe (maximum 7).
"It is in this way that we, the leaders of our world, may shape primitive cultures and bring them forward to trade or serve."
