This week is your week to really think about the details of the topic and bring your clan to life! There will be a different topic every Friday so you can work on it at your leisure but gives a little nudge towards working on lore. Setting aside time for lore writing is very important, so think of this as your FR homework and try to do it at a certain time on the same day of the week. Getting a schedule down makes it so you actually work on lore. Not… how I did it and wait two years before writing the next bit to a story... The goal of this series will be to release a different topic each week and be finished with the basics of clan lore within 6 months so anyone can participate no matter how far along you are currently. Above all, this is a place to share the lore you have created focusing on the week's topic and discuss it with others. If you get stuck on a particular aspect, bouncing ideas off of someone else can help. Let’s build our Sornieth together.

Chapter 2. Clan Roles: Hierarchy and Personalities

So you've got a small collection of dragons. Now you need to string them together. Today’s focus is on your dragons themselves. If you have a large lair, start with five dragons, get those hashed out then add more one by one. For now though, focus on just five.

This chapter will be a two-parter. The next section will be focusing on jobs, so don’t worry about detailing that part just yet, but having an idea for general profession for each dragon is fine for now.

1. What social structure do you use? Is it a Monarchy? Oligarchy? Autocracy? Tribal System? A Commune? If you’re stuck, the wiki page on government can help clear things up. Or use FR’s own title guide.

2. Head on over to a personality trait guide and give it a quick look. Do any of these words stick to one of your dragons? Grab a few index cards and use one for each dragon. Write down traits you think would match. If you can’t think of any a handy random number generator can help you pick. You can also use google docs to make digital index cards which are much easier to share, but I find having physical ones on hand next to my keyboard more convenient and I’m more likely to jot stuff down on paper when I have an idea. Also handy when you have a lot of dragons…

3. Okay, now that you’ve got a basic idea of personalities, how do these 5 dragons interact with each other? Are they lovers? Friends? Rivals? Are they higher or lower rank on the social structure? Maybe they don’t like how the other one operates. Or they do like it. How do they show it? Are they likely to be sneaky about it or upfront?

You have the basic of a personality down, now explore further. Find likes and dislikes for the following categories: Activities, Food, Objects/Presents from other dragons, personality traits in a mate. 2. What long term goals do they have in life? 3. What do they value the most? Put this list of values in order of most important: Family, Truth, Honor, Friendship, Money/Materials. For example, say a dragon’s family member is being imprisoned.

WEEK TWO
Clan Roles: Hierarchy and Personalities 4/6

The prompt calls for five dragons, my picks are listed above.

1. What social structure do you use? Is it a Monarchy? Oligarchy? Autocracy? Tribal System? A Commune? If you’re stuck, the wiki page on government can help clear things up. Or use FR’s own title guide.

Because this is a new lair/clan, the established relationship is simple: it is Glen Vale's territory, so Glen Vale is initially the land lord and everything has to go through him.

2. Head on over to a personality trait guide and give it a quick look. Do any of these words stick to one of your dragons? Grab a few index cards and use one for each dragon. Write down traits you think would match. If you can’t think of any a handy random number generator can help you pick. You can also use google docs to make digital index cards which are much easier to share, but I find having physical ones on hand next to my keyboard more convenient and I’m more likely to jot stuff down on paper when I have an idea. Also handy when you have a lot of dragons…

Glen Vale:: Responsible, Well-rounded, Steady, Abrupt.

Verel:: Benevolent, Genuine,Protective.

Yugona:: Invulnerable, Persuasive, Self-sufficent, Deceptive.

Lili:: Perceptive, Resourceful, Self-critical, Aggressive.

Leima:: Cheerful, Friendly, Spontaneous, High-spirited.

*skipped most negative words due to spoilers*


3. Okay, now that you’ve got a basic idea of personalities, how do these 5 dragons interact with each other?

Are they lovers? Verel and Yugona are ex lovers.

Friends? Glen Vale and Vere are best friends.

Rivals? Lili and Leima, from Lili's point of view.

Are they higher or lower rank on the social structure? Order goes as followed:: Glen Vale, Verel, Leima, Lili, Yugona. Rank goes by clan contribution.

Maybe they don’t like how the other one operates. Or they do like it. How do they show it? Are they likely to be sneaky about it or upfront?

Glen Vale:: is pretty straight forward and expects his word to be heard and his rules abided to help the clans business.

Verel:: Is very responsible in his position as guard and patrol.

Yugona:: Doesn't have a care for the lan or their ways. She is just laying low for now...

Lili:: would rather please her mother than abide by her clan duties and responsibilities.

Leima:: is very eager to please and due to her high energy tends to over do it.


Advanced Lorebuilding
Done all that basic stuff at the top? Well, here's some more stuff to work on.

1. You have the basic of a personality down, now explore further. Find likes and dislikes for the following categories:

Activities,


Glen Vale:: gardening, reading, observing.

Verel:: swimming, napping, spending time with Leima.

Yugona:: wouldn't you like to know...

Lili:: doing her mother's bidding. Also collecting rocks.

Leima:: looking for plants and flowers with a unique number of petals, (mutations), such as four leaf clovers.


Food,

Glen Vale:: is quiet found of poultry.

Verel:: tuna fish sandwiches with lettuce and tomatoes.

Yugona:: whatever she can scrape up...

Verel:: laid back, quiet, content to cuddle without words.

Yugona:: a survivor.

Lili:: a fighter.

Leima:: too young for that right now, she is busy with her studies! Mate must read!


2. What long term goals do they have in life?

Glen Vale:: to have an established business in every flight.

Verel:: to have hid daughters both in his life happily.

Yugona:: classified.

Lili:: her mother's love.

Leima:: to discover and new species of anything!


3. What do they value the most?
Put this list of values in order of most important: Family, Truth, Honor, Friendship, Money/Materials.

Yugona:: Honor, Truth, Money/Materials, Friendship, Family.

For example, say a dragon’s family member is being imprisoned. What will your dragon care about more: the truth of what happened; Their own (or the family) honor that is being tainted; or will they value the fact that something bad is happening to a family member more?


Glen Vale:: will always demand the truth.

Verel:: cares more for the family member.

Yugona:: flight honor being tainted.

Lili:: self, family, or flight honor being tainted.

1. What social structure do you use? Is it a Monarchy? Oligarchy? Autocracy? Tribal System? A Commune? If you’re stuck, the wiki page on government can help clear things up. Or use FR’s own title guide.

My clan is meritocratic, with some monarchic behavior as a side effect of most of my lore dergs being related somehow to my two progens + the g1 I scavenged and hatched on day 3 of playing because I hadn't yet worked out the economy. I'm still working out if there's any centralized leadership, but it's more a guerilla enterprise than anything. With a common goal of don't starve/make that cash/make that SCIENCE.

2. Head on over to a personality trait guide and give it a quick look. Do any of these words stick to one of your dragons? Grab a few index cards and use one for each dragon. Write down traits you think would match. If you can’t think of any a handy random number generator can help you pick. You can also use google docs to make digital index cards which are much easier to share, but I find having physical ones on hand next to my keyboard more convenient and I’m more likely to jot stuff down on paper when I have an idea. Also handy when you have a lot of dragons…

The dragons I'm using for this week have some work in their bios already, but that's more history and less who they are.
Meein
cunning
shrewd
impulsive
steely
cagey
brazen

Meein, Aisling, and Adair are lovers, and coincidentally kinda founded a trade union that got out of hand (though exactly how I'm still leaving up in the air).
