    Default Final Runoff

    Out of all the options, it appears that there are only two settings that are realistically feasible in the short term: they have rules ready (or nearly ready), dedicated moderators and demand from the players. This isn’t to say that other options will be permanently shelved: the Shed will continue to work on the projects we have been already as well as look into developing a different medieval or early modern game in the near future.

    Here are the two. You have a single vote, so choose wisely:
    - Medieval England: 11-13th century. Either cover post Norman conquest or later civil conflicts such as the barons wars or the Anarchy. Dedicated moderators are myself, Lucius Malfoy and Barry Goldwater.
    - Reublican Rome: A post Marian game set during a Germanic invasion of Italy. Dedicated moderators are Pontifex Maximus, Trot, myself, and LM.

    I don't see why Medieval England rules couldn't also apply to Scotland in the same period. You'd only need some very minor changes.

    I agree, for once, with Skylord in this topic. Scotland is troublesome and interesting enough to be worth acting as setting for a game.

    Well for medieval England we’d need to gut WOTR’s rules anyway, but with Scotland we’d require even more gutting and then adding in stuff like the clans and the Scottish feudal system

    I've seen games that took us way more work to develop and that we still played in short time! I think the always troubled Scotland is a fine game, specially after the death of Alexander II.

    Another very fitting setting, if England's chosen, is the Barons War, in my opinion more feasible than anything during the Norman era.

    Honestly i'd just prefer to wait so we can work on an entire new game in the meanwhile, without being distracted by a running game.

    As for those two options laid out in the poll

    1) I'm quite done with late republican Rome, i'm quite done with that period. I'd like to explore new periods if a roman setting is to be played although that requires reworking of the rules i suppose.
    2) I like England but as for the moment i feel its overplayed for now. The only setting that could spark my interest is a Tudor setting which won't come to pass anyways. Maybe i'll change my opinion later.
    3) Scotland would be nice for a change of scene in the short term.

    Have there been any decisions for long term games in the historical category or has it yet to be decided? Will you take a setting from the former poll?

    You wouldn't need any more gutting than for medieval England. Scottish clans have their Laird and he has his, it's not a particularly big deal.

    Will the Shed decide by themselves or through voting by poll?

    Regardless, late 13th Century Scotland or the Barons War are the best bets.

    Gandy you forgot the second setting for YATS. It was an alternate history where a Gallic revolt happens and Caesar is killed as a result. Political upheaval happens in Rome with a number of historical figures dying and leaving our chars left to stabilize the republic.

    Well, we can't have both medieval england and scotland, so you'll have to pick one or the other for the purposes of this

    We're aware, but if the Medieval setting wins then we can choose, can't we.

    Theoretically we should be able to pull off both games anyway if there's relatively little overlap between their playerbases (this seems likely to be the case, IMO). The first WOTR and YATS ran alongside each other just fine for several months back in 2016, after all.

    I somehow doubt it. When one waxed the other waned.

    So half the people voting for a medieval England setting actually want a medieval Scotland setting, for which there aren't rules ready rendering this poll...moot? I'll happily run YATS simultaneously
