I got side-tracked doing research for Ukarea and thought I would take a break and work on the Mini-Gazetteer. I have the map I created earlier, and wanted to work on populations and how they corresponded to each other before adding a bit of detail to the notable NPCs. I started with this:
1-2 Lawful (Yellow)
3-4 Neutral (Green)
5-6 Chaotic (Black)
1d6 (Ruler is X by Populace:)
1-2 Opposed (Red)
3-4 Neutral (Blue)
5-6 Supported (Lt Green)
I was going to elaborate on the results, but think that I will leave it up to the interpretation of any GM that might want to use it.
Immediately things jump out at me; take the Haverosse Estate in the South-East. The estate's Vassal Knight is Neutral and opposed by his populace. The other two Haverosse Knights are Chaotic and the populace is ambivolant. Perhaps the Vassal Knight's people are unruley do to the success of the other two Haverosse Knight's? Perhaps, if the Chaotic Haverosse Knights throw in with the supported Chaotic Knight in the Urullik Estate, they could overthrow the Lawful Urullik Vassal Knight there? The supported Neutral Urullik Knight would probably not interject, and the Neutral Haverosse Vassal Knight could be usurped, turning the two estates 'Chaotic' and against the Baron in short order? As long as the populace in Haverosse did not change their oppinion of their rulers for doing so. (Reaction Roll please...)
I like it. Falls into the inspirational, without giving too much mind-numbing detail, I believe.
