Hey, welcome! You can always place your MOC chronologically in the "not-so-ancient history", back at Juniper war or any relevant past war between OL and COR.

The war with Oleon has now ended with the peace on Terraversa, but Corrington is still at war with the Lotus Empire (China-parallel), the main potential battleground being El Oleonda.

The most recent war was with Oleon in the Brick Seas and just wrapped up with peace on Terraversa. I think there is still war with the Lotus Empire.

A previous war is the Juniper War

This is my character Killian Goodwill, delighted to join the Empire of Corrington. 

BoBS Character introduction

Killian Goodwill was born with the eyes of his father and the smile of his mother. Killian passed most of his early years in a good and caring home, this all changed after the death of his father who died serving the Corrington Empire. Killians mother left soon after because she could not live with the constant reminder of her beloved husband. He was thus sent to live at his grandfather's estate, an old and grumpy veteran who earned the rank of general during the several wars against Oleon. Raised by his strict grandfather, he developed useful skills needed in the military. As soon as he was of age, with a need to impress his grandfather and with his father in mind, Killian enlisted in the army. After a couple years of service, he made the rank of field artillery captain, which he served as proudly. However, after the death of his Grandfather, Killian no longer felt the need to stay in the army and instead decided that it was time to establish the Goodwill family as something else than soldiers. Thus, with his newly inherited fortune, Killian Goodwill started a new chapter of his life...

Welcome aboard, Killian! A pleasure to have you here. We will add you to our pm at next convenience.

if you have any questions to the lore, faction, rules, or anything else, feel free to ask them here, and we will do our best to assist you. In the meantime, you just have time to look into the current challenge, if it suits you. Otherwise, you can go ahead and build for your own story, or whatever you are up for.

If you want to get started on the EGS (economic game system), remember you have a free small property and class two vessel as well.

Fair winds!

It is my pleasure to introduce my character captain Edward Scarver and to pledge my loyalty to the Empire of Corrington 

---

Edward Scarver was the eldest son and heir of a successful merchant captain who owned shares in a number of ships. Edward grew up in Belson, where he attended the Archeon navigation College granting him intimate knowledge in the art of navigation. During his teen years, before attending the College, Edward accompanied his father as an apprentice on trade expeditions to the new world. Edward instantly fell in love with the wildness of the new world, from tropical islands filled with exotic animals and dense untouched jungles, to hurricanes and aggressive sea rats… the young Edward loved it all. As war broke once again between Oleon and Corrington, an 18 year old Edward signed up as a sailor aboard the 80 gun 2nd rate ship of the line HMS Hera. Hera fought in countless battles and lost many men along the way, but despite the horrors he had seen, Edward was finally reunited with the tropical world he had been dreaming of ever since his apprenticeship on his fathers ship. When Corrington lost the Juniper war, Edward resigned his position in the navy and acquired a letter of marque. He left on a 3 year privateering expedition in command of two of his father's frigates, the sister ships HMS Duke and HMS Duchess. He accumulated enough riches during the expedition to gain him a reputation amongst investors as a trustworthy and capable privateer.

Since then, Captain Edward Scarver has bought a small property in Port Woodhouse and has been serving the Queen and her Empire as an active privateer.

And an initial build in Port Woodhouse @Justsomebrix?

Yes I'm planning on it, but I just left on vacation so I won't be able to build anything these next 2 weeks. I was wondering how travel works in the game? I'm a bit confused on the importance of the place you start your story

Hope you're having a great vacation!

There are a few types of travel/movement in the game, but the big difference is between your sigfig and ships/troops.

Your sigfig can pretty much move about the Brick Seas magically with little regard for time and space. For the purposes of your story, you may want to map out a route using the available maps, or focus on a single region to make it plausible.

During the recent almost war in Terraversa a number of our sigfigs appeared on the island from across the Brick Seas.

Also, just because you called out Port Woodhouse in your intro story doesn't mean you have to build there first! And builds don't have to feature your sigfig at all! Lots of leeway

Ships and troops can only move so far each game turn, so there are more rules surrounding that.

2. Is it possible to found a new town or something like that ?

3. Is it allowed to build Forts ? 

4. Can i create a new Regiment in which my sigfig is serving (for example: 22 Regiment of foot) ?

5. Has a ship to be licensed even if the builder does not participate in the basic economic system ?

6. Would this story be allowed: "I have the honor to introduce you to Captain George Hewlett today.
When he was 19 years old, his father died of natural causes.
With the money he left him, he bought the rank of ("captain") at ("HM Royal Marines")." ...

7. Can my sigfig have a wife and childs ?

Yes, no problems here. Ranks after Captain are appointed by the faction, anything up to and including Captain can be determined by your story.

43 minutes ago, MetallFanYT said:

2. Is it possible to found a new town or something like that ?

Yes, although first you are encouraged to start building in an existing settlement, A list of all settlements can be found here

45 minutes ago, MetallFanYT said:

3. Is it allowed to build Forts ? 

Absolutely. Although if you are playing the EGS they are expensive to maintain. In Corrington Forts are generally managed by the faction, so players are welcome to build them, then donate them to the faction to pay the upkeep. I would recommend discussing with your faction before deciding a location for a new fort. Of course if you aren't playing the EGS, then feel free to build away and not worry about any of the above!

47 minutes ago, MetallFanYT said:

4. Can i create a new Regiment in which my sigfig is serving (for example: 22 Regiment of foot) ?

Yes, although check out this link to make sure the number you assign your regiment has not already been used.

5. Has a ship to be licensed even if the builder does not participate in the basic economic system ?

No, you only need to license a ship if you are participating in the EGS.

48 minutes ago, MetallFanYT said:

6. Would this story be allowed:

At the age of 19, I'd recommend he start as a Lieutenant (promotion is quick in the colonies), but other than that yes, no issues at all with your story!

7. Can my sigfig have a wife and childs ?

Of course, your sigfig's backstory is completely up to you!

No worries at all, please ask away - it is complicated to understand everything when starting. This guide is a good start when signing up.
