Fanfic - Civilization Traits
« on: June 10, 2006, 08:55:49 pm »
Using Civ 4 as a guide i thought it would be good to set up a standard classification system in which it can be used during role playing. Each civ would have their own unique traits just like in star trek with aggressive Klingons and Logical Vulicans. Plz add any suggestions to this you have to better the system.

Choose TWO that most fit your creature's civilization

Agricultural - Farming Civilization
Aggressive - War-like Civilization
Charismatic - Popular Civilization
Creative - Cultured Civilization
Expansive - Vast Civilization
Financial - Trade Civilization
Imperialistic - Forceful Civilization
Industrious - Productive Civilization
Organized -  Organized Civilization
Philosophical - Moral Civilization
Protective - Well Defended Civilization
Scientific - Innovative Civilization
Spiritual - Unified Civilization

Here are some examples (plz note if you think this is off)...

Kazea (Creative / Spiritual)
Naucean (Scentific / Industrious)
Necromonicon (Aggressive / Spiritual)
Quillarian (Creative / Financial)
Torpal (Aggressive / Organized)
ViS (Organised/Expansive)
Wexxian (Creative / Organized)

So is that accurate? "Necromonicon (Aggressive / Spiritual)" ? I figured they were more spiritual than organized though tis a close call. Aggressive is of course the main trait i think.

Is your accurate too? "Torpal (Aggressive / Organized)"?  I was not sure what the 2nd trait should be. The first is always the most trade mark feature and the other is the secondary feature. Like ViS are deffinally Organized with their Bureaucracy or Quillarians are very Creative with their Music.

I think you got them all spot on Hydro. The Necromonicons are definately more unified as a race than any of the other options. The only thing that comes close is expancive, but the Necromonicons aren't so much expansive as they're just numerous. I also think you captured the Torpals with their organization a main play in their war-like nature.

I think you should add another category though:

Annoying - Homo, Furry, Unoriginal Civilization

Things like Prodeerians, Shewaf, and Brondorion fit here  ;D

The ViS should be Organised/Expansive

They dont need to trade much because their territory is so big they can be self-sufficient.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

Ok. I went and fixed it. I was thinking of the financial as in the more coprate cubical busness stuff, but your right they don't trade to much. Expansive fits much more.

Shouldnt torpal be Aggressive/spiritual. They arent that organised and fighting is basically their region.

I am not sure lets ask operaghost21. Also rember there are the 2 main ones. Creatures can have all of these trais but these are the most noticable.
