A recruit!

Excellent choice, Hvalreki, I applaud you for joining the winning side.

House Jurise is also looking for Minor Houses for mutual Faufreluches back-scratching.

I can absolutely alter my house to be one of your minors, I'm extremely mercenary.

A mercenary mercenary house. Love it! I'm fully onboard if the initial setup allows for it. savoylen may need all houses at odds until we get more.

I see that House Chol has some success with recruitment. Many Houses in the Landsraad will be jealous of our two Mentats.

Here is my character application.

I have to admit, I am already mixing stuff out with who's what with whom..

I think I'm not ready for an intriguing political game. Dropping out, have fun peeps!

LOL... I understand - this is not for everyone. I've marked you withdrawn. But this also what this is for.

Just so you (and others) know though, during gameplay, you'll see "everything" only our own house, the "public face" of the other houses, and the current scene that you are currently playing in. I'll keep the game clean and lanes clear for you. Of course, those lanes may end up being quite bloody but...

If you ever decide you want to give it a try... you can head to our game forum and jump right in. I'm sure there be positions open in most houses from time to time!

Thank you for considering the game.

Wow, I did not need to find this thread as I'm lying in bed about to go to sleep.

Love Dune, read all kinds of books and have always wanted to play in the setting. I have to sleep now, but let me bring myself up to speed on this and work out where I am at. I'm guessing we are at saturation point for houses at the moment, so I'll assess the the state of play on the others when I've got proper time to dedicate to this, though if you feel there's room for more houses please let me know and I'll factor it into my calculations!!

Nice to hear that - got to love the love the Dune setting has!

There really is not a saturation point on Houses. We'd like to have three PCs in a house to get it going but even that isn't a hard rule - more of a guideline really. It will be hard to keep the major house standing without three PCs or more but a minor house could hold its own with at least two active players. Some of this we'll learn as we play the game. As far as I can tell, this has never been attempted before!

Minor houses will need to align with each other or perhaps a major house. Everyone will need to ally with a Great House.

All that to say, play the way you want! Great to have you on board.

- Savy

Reading over what you have planned, I'd really like to sink my teeth into gaming in such a project. Would it be a problem if my only knowledge about Dune is that there are worms and spice and political scifi intrigue?

Unfortunately though I'm a bit too booked on games, so I worry that I don't have the space to add a two-post per week game at this time, especially a long running one. But you've written that this might become a continuous recruiting game, so I'd probably be fine to subscribe to the thread now and to hope finding an opportunity to join in the future, right?

Your quotes instantly bring to mind a few ideas, if you don't mind my riffing:

I imagine there being a cult-like adherence to esoteric laws, edicts, or rituals. Conversely, maybe, you could subvert that a notion: there are all these esoteric laws and rituals but nobody really believes in any of it; instead, they treat it like a social/political game, with the goal being to develop the most cunning and Machiavellian mindset possible.

For some reason it makes me thing of a very cloistered, monastic, and Renaissance type of homeward.

Hi there Mindsiege - that's no problem at all! As for dropping a bit later, absolutely OK too... this is a kind of game where Houses (and their people) will ebb and flow.

It would be awesome to have you whenever you are ready.

Really nice interest in this so far - great! I'm still organizing in my head and in the game forum; But I think we can go ahead and get some things going.

Though we are a few weeks out from launch yet (I'm still planning on an October official launch), those of you that have posted information on a HOUSE, we can go ahead and soft-launch. Please go ahead and post in the HOUSE forum.


To jump start things, we'll just move through the startup process directly from 'here'... after the launch, we'll have the new folks kick it off in our game forum as most 'continuous recruiting' game do.

1. Select New Thread and post your house info. CONGRATS... that is all there is to it.
Once the Landsraad has accepted your Patent of Nobility, you'll be given a private thread in the "Games and Warfare" area - this where you house details (special resources and traits) and your most important assets (your characters) will go later.

Once I have your House set up (it will become a private area), we'll finalize and post your starting characters.

Couple of things:
I notice the Great houses have a nifty format. Do you mind posting a blank format here so we can copy for our own houses?

Also, is it okay to have the house be preliminary with ability for the first house members to tweak it and make it their own?
