~Otriad: Survival in the Forest~

~Otriad: Survival in the Forest~

In September of 1939, Poland was invaded by Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union. Jews in Soviet Poland, tired of the anti-semitic Polish government, hoped for change.

The change was not better. The Polish Jews were second class citizens, forced to work as laborers, and hundreds of thousands were sent to Siberian labor camps.

Then, in June of 1941, the Germans declared war on the USSR. The unprepared Red Army melted away within two months, abandoning Poland to the Nazis. A year later, the Final Solution begins. Thousands of villages and towns were burned to the ground, and hundreds of thousands, if not more, were killed. You were born a few years after the Great War, and saw the oncoming storm approaching. You fled into the Belarusian forests with nothing but an old rifle, a knife, and some food, determined to survive.

I have some questions. What's an Otriad? Can I pick a more specific group size as long as it's justified? Can I include my own backstory for my Otriad? Is there any particular reason why a hunter would be less charismatic than a laborer or farmer? "(+3 Jews, -2 Germans, -1 Soviets)" <-- What does this stuff mean, is it relationship rating or something?

Hard science is like a sword, and soft science is like fear. You can use both to equally powerful results, but even if your opponent disbelieve your stabs, they will still die.

Otriad is a Russian word used to mean a partisan unit. It's made up of the prefix "ot-" meaning off, and "ryad" meaning row, which is commonly used to mean order or balance. Yes, you can pick a specific group size, but not too large. Yes, you can make a backstory. The hunter (needed a disadvantage to hunter) works alone, far from civilization, whereas the farmers and laborers work together. And finally, yes, those are relationships. I wanted to get this thing out the door and forgot to explain about the factions.

Yeah, suggestion. I considered making an RTD, but my history with RTDs is not..good.
