Nevit (Ur-Obun Almathean)

Future Histories: Imperial Space

Technoculture

Tech Level: Fourth Stellar Age

Culture: Nomadic, Decadent Culture

Nomadic cultures do not build lasting buildings or edifices, but instead focuses its energy on transportation the task of moving its people from place of place. Their governments tend to focus on strong leaders, whose control usually does not extend beyond his clan or tribe. Nomadic folk could easily be interstellar trading clans, rabid biker gangs, or folk who wander the wilderness in armored recreational vehicles.

Roleplay: A Nomadic character may be afflicted with wanderlust and become uncomfortable when tied down to one locale. A Nomadic character will always feel out of place in a city and often distrust those who live in them. A Nomadic character may have a kind of wild vitality, a lust for life that has been lost by the “civilized.”

Decadent cultures are cultures past the peak of their prime. Decay, particularly moral decay, has begun to set in at all levels of society and the people have become pleasure-loving and jaded. Tech Level remains constant, but few significant gains are being made. Governments are commonly those which function best with multiple layers of carefully partitioned authority and responsibility (like Bureaucracies, Corporations, and Democracies). The government becomes self-perpetuating and heedless of the people’s needs. Although government support of the Poor is predominant, previously common civil liberties and government services begin to disappear. Inflation and unrestrained crime are often rampant.

Roleplay: It is not uncommon for citizens of these cultures (even the lowliest slaves and street folk) to believe that their culture is not only at its dynamic prime, but that it and they are vastly superiorto everything else. A character from this culture could easily have a haughty attitude, looking down his nose at everything. Simple pleasures might easily bore a person from this culture. On the other hand, they could be so foreign to the character that they intrigue him to no end.

Others are In bond to a master and live at his whim. Still more barely live off what meager bounty the land provides. These folk may often be a subclass or “race’ of one type of being who are discriminated against by their fellows. The chief industry of this crass is foraging and scavenging. This Is survival level – no luxuries. Money is rare and all Income goes toward merely slaying alive. Includes street people, unemployables, serfs, back woods folk. Share croppers, rural bandits, so me slaves, and unfortunate Primitives.

Roleplay: Destitute characters may believe that they have no real control over their own lives and exist merely al the whim of others, whether it be the gods, the wealthy or Just anyone who is not Destitute. This attitude might be expressed as hopelessness, or become hatred and revenge against either society or those believed to be the cause of his misfortune.

GM Notes 5/1/2013

The Holy Grail

Something is calling Nevit to Grail.  On Grail Saint Amalthea healed Zebulon of his wounds wrought from exorcising a criminal. She debated ethics with the Prophet and became his follower. After his death and her subsequent vision of Ahnkelbion (an Empyrean or angel) telling her to move to Artemis her order was established on that planet. Perhaps it is Ahnkelbion calling her or maybe it is her imagination.  It is a great honor to have visited the site of the Prophet’s Healing.  Maybe starting there will give Nevit direction.
