#3 Friedheim - The holy haven

#3 Friedheim - The holy haven

#3 Friedheim - The holy haven

  • Safe, clean, orderly, holy, faithful, hardworking, open, tolerant, peaceful - at night they party here
  • Church of the Flunker, nuns, monks, farmers, trappers, merchants, woodworkers, craftsmen, artists...only the minority are flunkers, but they set the tone. The rest are settlers or refugees from Europe and some natives.
  • Language: mostly German
  • There never is any fighting here (the place is sacred) - so ingame and offgame there should be no fighting here.
  • At night, the other camps visit Friedheim: either to party - or to negotiate with the enemies without the possibility of a fight.
  • Resources: gunpowder, food, wood, furs, pearls... and: Music, dance and performing arts!

You want to play, trade, craft or party in peace - without being attacked? Without witchcraft or shooting? Then you are at the right place here! But please respect the priests of the Flunker.


The Church of the Flunker: The Prussian-Helvetian Free Church split off a few years ago and was persecuted by the Prussian state. Basically, they are pious and quite tolerant. However, they live excessively at night and party wildly, which has made them unpopular with all other Christian churches. In the morning, the party-happy “Flunkies” seem to transform completely: then they pray, behave piously and lovingly, constantly quoting their saints:


"The fuller the belly, the freer the spirit!" or


"ora et celebra - first pray, then celebrate!"


Their love of art is also special: poetry, dance, music and painting. A flunker manages to see art - and the divine - even in a brushstroke.


Some say they were named after "Edmund Funker," one of the founders. Others are sure it comes from the saying:


"We never lie, we just fib a little." 😉

(“flunkern” means fib in english)


Many of the stiff lords, noble ladies and stuck-up prigsof James Town really like Friedheim: here they can relax a little. Here they can do "just good business" - and even with their enemies. In Friedheim there are no ambushes. So you can give your opponents a good talking to - or spontaneously change sides.


To the groups and personalities of Friedheim...

#2 Path of ghosts

#2 Path of ghosts

Come over here, fellow ... under the tree ... quick!

Don´t mind the rain and the storm ... it´s good for us ... it protect´s us from curious eyes.

So, you wanted to know more about the path of ghost ... or as they call it in Friedheim “Pfad der Geister”

Yes, I will tell you, but you need to pay me 'rst ... come on ...hmm... one more ... aaah, good good good.

Chap, you´re already on unholy ground ... yeah, I can tell you ... the land you´re right standing on.

This land is hos)le, angry and cursed. It´s full of rage ... and it´s ever been ... from the 'rst ) me you stepped onto it.

You regret to come here? ... It´s too late.

We need this path to cross the cursed wood to get to Taboo Moor.

Yeah, you´re right ... it´s very dangerous ... but I can tell you, with a bit of discipline and courage you´ll be safe.

Come on, you are now entering the path of ghosts. Don´t be a coward.

And listen ... listen to me ...Keep your eyes on the ground! Don´t look up! LISTEN! DON´T ... look up!

Otherwise you will lose your mind ... and perhaps your soul ... instantly, if you don´t obey.

You may be curious or full of fear ... but, keep your head down and cover your eyes, if necessary.

You don´t want to get mad ... no ... believe me.Come on! Get into it!

Oh wait!Hear this? ... That´s them! ... the Mad Faces!

This is the home of the Mad Faces ... yeah, they live here ... if you call that a livin´.

And this place got it´s own secrets .... I can tell you ... later ... don´t ask me now.

When you hear this, they are close ... remember, don´t look up! ... lower your gaze! Cover your eyes ... whatever it takes.

Huh ... it´s gettng louder ... they are coming!

You got, what you wanted ... I brought you in here ... and, guess what? I´m leaving!

#1 The Soul Suckers

#1 The Soul Suckers

#1 The Soul Suckers

...or "Souleater" or Narúne:


There is a rotten hack between Taboo Moor and James Town - right by the Mad Faces' little grove. There live the Narúne, which means soul-suckers: a group of witches who are true masters and mistresses of physical healing. They say that if your body is as good as destroyed and the healers in Taboo Moor shake their heads, you can still try these witches. They never say no. First, they suck the soul out of the almost dead body and breathe it into a jar. After healing, they breathe the soul back in. If all goes well.


Two weeks ago, Cicilia Mayham, the daughter of the president of East India was hit by a bullet. The bullet hit her lung and Sir Mayham ordered his men to take her to the Narúne lodge. When the men returned, they were as white as a sheet. One said:


"Sir, the glass shattered. It fell down... We don't know how that could have happened... but your daughter's soul was already in the glass!"


Cicilia, however, stood upright beside the men and Sir Mayham ignored the matter of the glass: his daughter was alive! She was breathing!


But it soon became clear that something was missing: she did not speak a word and no one heard her once sweet laughter. She did not eat or sleep. After two days, Sir Mayham quietly said, "My little flower has withered." Later they burned Cicilia's body, which is very unusual for the settlers.


Last night one of the night marchers told the trappers:


"I heard a sweet and bright laughter in the forest that night. I swear by all the saints, it sounded like little Cicilia's laugh!"
