There are many people, of many nationalities fighting amongst each other. Some are trying to survive, others taking advantage of the situation, and some just caught in the crossfire. You look up and see an object falling from the sky. It has a trail of flames behind it, and you get an utter feeling of dread. As soon as it gets near the ground, it creates a great explosion, and you can only look as the wave of fire it has created approaches, getting closer...
You open your eyes, and find yourself on your back. Your vision is blurred, but comes into focus, and you realize you are in a cave within a large area of grassland. someone comes to your side and offers you a hand up. You accept it, stand and look around. There appears to be a fire at the end of the cave, and about 10 other people sitting around it, talking. The sun has just come up, and is halfway above the horizon, casting the cave in an orange glow. A wooden spear is next to you, and you pick it up and walk over to the fire. The others greet you and one offers you something to eat, which, upon closer observation, turns out to be a cooked snake. You take some and eat it, thanking the person, and once you have all had your fill, you snuff the fire, stand up, stretch, and begin walking to the exit of the cave.
there seems to be a change in the winds...what is your name?
After losing the will to continue with my evolution game (I may pick it up again, but not right now), I decided that I'd start up another game. It took me a while to decide what, exactly, the game would be, then I decided. A game that would guide you from the beginning of man, throughout history and into the future (if the game lasts that long)
Initially, illustrations will be non-existant, but I may begin drawing maps of the local area etc. later on. (no, I won't draw the scenery, because I can't draw for shit. I especially can't draw people, but if you want, feel free to provide images)
I'll try to keep this updated as often as possible, but with my exams approaching, I may not be able to update it as often as I would like.
Note: in this, you won't be OP, and ALL happenings will be based upon a random number generator, so you'd better hope the RNG god is happy with you in a war. however, certain things may modify the number (e.g. if you outnumber the enemy, you'll get a +1 modifier). but suicidal tactics are advised against, unless you want a very short game.
apologies to any that wanted me to continue the evolution game, but, as stated, I just lost interest.
Weapons: wooden spear (both hands)
clothing: fur loincloth
note that I'm being purposely ambiguous in the stats rather than posting numbers purposefully. IRL, you never know exactly how tired you are, or exactly how long you have until you die of starvation.
