Cavemania Evolution Series: 7/26/2020 14:08:05

Hello and welcome to the most ambitious form a legacy/evolution series to have hit Warzone to-date: Cavemania.

Check latest post for current events and Update Posts. Scenario and onboarding links will be posted here as the series progresses.


This series uses extensive spreadsheets and innovative scenario design to allow for statlines and abilities to be introduced into Warzone. A long laundry list of enhanced Warzone Features and clever mechanical design keep every turn interesting throughout each match. The game will use several Mods, and prime optimal strategy dictates that you use your creative writing skills to engender important stat-boosts to your people. A frequency of about one validated post every other turn (~5 posts available every 10 turns) will maximize your RP benefits.

We start at 10,000BC, the advent of the Agricultural Revolution in the Middle East. I have as-of-this-writing scoped out the first 3 scenarios taking us to the advent of metalworking. However, as with any good roleplaying game, the possibilities are endless, the direction is mutable. Polls and player feedback will help me determine where the series goes from there and how fast. More about scenario 1 below.

Among the many features aimed at long-lasting fairness and interest, the series will use completely transparent evolution mechanics and I will be taking a GM slot after scenario 1 (to fuel ability mechanics and stay an unbiased arbiter). The game's 'abilities' and statlines are specially designed to enhance discrete playstyles and is resplendently spiced with various 'bounce-back' abilities that will allow eliminated and downtrodden players to achieve great effect in future scenarios. Also, there are no honor-bound rules!

Lastly, although the series will be playable without (as all the various features need only be ran through PM to the host), we highly recommend joining the Cavemania Discord server for early updates, additional lore, and OOC chatting (No ooc in WZ pub chat).



If you are interested in finding out more, check the latest Update Post for the correct link to apply to play. Discord, rules, and more info will be available within.

I’m interested, but why the RP limit? I mean, I know, you can’t get to the Iron Age on turn 2 but why the RP limit?

Update Post #1

We are kicking off the series with the first scenario Cavemania: Origins. Origins will start when we have the maximum number of players (36). There are three ways to apply. At this point registration is open to anyone, provided you make known your interest in participating.


Once you have made your interest known, KingEridani will send you an onboarding mail with your access to the discord and People Generation Quiz. For now rules are being posted to Discord, and a massive searchable doc will be frankensteined together for those off discord before the game starts.




Origins will be a sort of prologue game. Aimed to be shorter in duration, during the match you will determine where people will start, get a little bit of meeting each other and warming up play, and earn some good stats and abilities that fit your playstyle going into the series proper.

The scenario will be GM-less, meaning I will play a stooge nation, sure to crumble into dust with the sands of time, but so that I can provide some in-game examples of RP posts, and we can use the Pick Distribution settings from Warzone. Don't worry if you get smashed, this match will be short and you'll do plenty fine in the next scenario.

Its not exactly a limit or maximum, you are free to RP as much as you would like! There is a regulated system for certain types of RP posts (everything else being Free RP), involving the Innovation of technologies and the playing of warzone Cards. But there is also a system called 'Ethos' attached to each players' profile, in which player-written beliefs and worldviews can be utilized to reap extra rewards for consistently thematic and effective RP.

Yes, I can currently only host 36 myself. If we get above this number, there are several high level Members who would be willing to psuedo-host for those additional slots.

That reminds me, THE Tungsten Trex has helped in the creation of the scenario 1 terrain map, and we usually have tasks for volunteers. I would not mind finding someone willing to be a Discord admin, or willing to be our RP post transcriber at the least.

Yes, I would like to make a Google Site. Perhaps to eventually contain a landing page like this one, but certainly for the rules.

I also realize now I can totally edit previous messages, but I'ma continue with the Update Post thing for now.
