[NA] The Picti

Prythax


"We are the Picts, the Pechts, the Fichti, the Painted-Ones. We hail from the north of Britannia, in the harsh lands of Caledonia, pass the reach of Rome and civilization."

"They say Hadrian's Wall marks the edge of the known world, and everything pass it is untamed, unforgiving wilderness. In that unforgiving wilderness we have made our home and lived since creation, since our fathers and their fathers' fathers claimed that land. Each of us were born there, born to squalor and filth compared to the luxury of the Romani, and civilization to the south. Because of this, we have been made strong, proud, and defiant in the face of our enemies. We serve as great warriors, famous for our bravery and courage, and our war-cries in the night. We strike terror into the hearts of our foes, and make them regret they ever crossed into our lands."

"We are the Picts, the Picti, the Painted-Ones."

Realizing most of the setting takes place on mainland Europe, the Picts would have almost nothing to do with having a settlement of some kind on one of the maps. There's simply no sense in having a Pict faction ATM. Therefore, until that time comes (Possibly never) we'll serve as mercenaries to barbarian factions, either Guals or Germans, and usually fight against the Romani or even the Greeks. This clan isn't 100% historically accurate, since we'll be Pictish mercenaries basically, and therefore will be away from our homeland of Scotland (Caledonia, Pictland, whatever) fighting and playing as mercs and warriors to whomever we want to. This draft is a WIP, as I'll don it with some fancy graphics, headers, ranks, and more information. We're a light-roleplaying clan (Seeing as Warband RP doesn't attract the most hardcore RPers), and will have some rules on roleplay as well. Rules will include having appropriate names, wearing barbarian-armor, and some behavior rules (Like never siding with Romans). Apart from that, we'll be a friendly, open clan with no current application, except for the higher ranks, and hope to just have fun.
