Before we dive in, let me put a couple of housekeeping things out there that I had no way of fitting into the continuity of the chapter, okay? Okay.
First off, I am using the BaRKC rules found here. Sort of. I took them as a basis, and then I modified them to my needs. I'd like to playtest those rules a little more before I post them, but in the meantime, the biggest changes pertinent to this early challenge are:
- No money cheats, period. I don't care what class you are, you get to start from the bottom!
- Speaking of starting from the bottom, the only privileged CAS sim who gets to start at the top is the founder. He or she is the monarch. Everyone else? Peasants.
- And since everyone starts as a peasant, there's no free CAS sims thrown into the mix. I get the founder to start with, and then everyone else is earned just like you would in a normal BaCC. None of this starting with multiple families thing in a kingdom where the world was literally just created.
Okay, now that all of that is out of the way, here's the prologue to Clitheroe: A BaRKC! Thanks for sticking with me through that wall of text, and thanks for reading!
