Three tribes inhabit this land. (remember, right now, they aren't yet states ) They are Comanche, Creek, and Caddo. All of the tribes have horses and domesticated wolves. There can be a few cats I suppose. I would appreciate it if anyone wishing to use another pet animal first PMed me before Roleing it. In case you are't familiar, Oklahoma is mostly flat, Arkansas is mostly mountains, Louisiana is lots of swamp/marsh and forest, and Missouri and Texas are more of a mix. 4 months real time = 1 year game time 1 month real time = 1 season game time To find out more about the Comanche: http://www.legendsofamerica.com/na-commanche.html & http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comanche To find out more about the Creek: http://www.legendsofamerica.com/na-creek.html To find out more about the Caddo: http://www.legendsofamerica.com/na-tribesummary-c-1.html#Caddo Names- Now for names, there's no "Mary" and "Bob" you have to have an Indian name. You can have something like "Standing Bear" and "Snow Bird" or whatever. For horse names, no "Star" and "Buddy" it's "Moon" and "River". Something from nature that really describes them. Plants, planets, forces of nature, animals, etc. Wolves can be something to do with color or personality. No "Fluffy" and "Brutus" it's "Red" and "Snowy" mostly colors and things. Other pets can be, say, "Tree" and "Marigold". If I'm not making my self clear, PM me and I'll explain it better to you Forms - PLEASE write a summary to go with your form. If you don't know what a summary is, ask somebody. It looks nicer on the front page if I have a summary for your character I really don't have time to make your form into a summary, so if you could just please PM me the form AND a summary, I would be very grateful.
