Frost Race: Core Thread (Prelude Turn 3/5: Revision Phase)
« on: October 12, 2019, 02:54:26 pm »


When the Frost came, nobody was prepared. In a matter of mere months, all the great powers of the world were brought to their knees, as poor and rich alike froze in their homes. Our forefathers decided to leave their homes, to head North across the seas, so that we might somehow find a place untouched by the endless winters.

We roamed for weeks, months, leaving behind all we had once believed had made us. We never found an escape from the endless winter, forced to stop due to dwindling supplies. As we managed to scrounge up the bare necessary supplies to survive, we found that we were not alone. Others, from another land, had settled near us, sucking up the resources we needed to survive. Tensions have only risen since we first met them, and now it's time that we rightfully take back all they have stolen from us. There isn't enough room for the both of us on this island.

"The temperature value starts at -2, and can roughly be translated into degrees Celsius at a 1:10 ratio"
That's quite a substantial ratio.
"For every 5 units the temperature drops below 0"
So, this can only happen once before everyone dies? I'm pretty sure that nobody can survive any length of time outside in temperatures of lower than -50C, and certainly not -100.

 
Other than that nitpick, the premise looks interesting, and you jacked a good system from MoP (although I prefer 2d4 to 2d6, but that's mostly subjective).

Yeah, now that I think the temperature seems a bit extreme. I just like having nice round numbers. I'll probably halve it or something, I'm open to suggestions.

 Yeah, if its one thing that Frostpunk is good at raising eyebrows about, its people taking walks and living at -120

I'd just not mention the scale. 0 is freezing, but other than that, what temperature -9 actually represents isn't relevant, so long as we know what the mechanical effects are.

Damnit people, this is why I said to keep the truce. Because now everyone's ganging up on the cats.
Also, don't forget to contact your local Eldritch Being(s), so that they can help with our mission to destroy the universe.
