Overview of the tribes present in Unknown Horizons

American Indian

They are a warlike folk, living in the northern steppe of America. If you come across them with respect, you do not have to fear anything.

Appearance

American Indians live in the northern territories and sometimes also in the tepid latitudes. They have compact settlings up to the size of a little village.

Structure of a settlement

All productional and living space tents are built around (one or more) chieftain tents. There is a maximum of three chieftains per Indian settlement. The settlement consists of tents with different size and design. There are only tents, no buildings made of stone, clay etc.

Goods

They mostly deal with coats and leather goods. There also exists the possibility of getting tobacco by a clever trading tactic. Because the Indians consume tobacco on their own, they are not very generous with it and can only help the player to bridge the gap until own production has been set up.

Exposure to strangers

The Indians are a gentle folk. Visiting them many times causes your reputation to raise. If the player however decides to make an enemy of them, he can get serious trouble. Indians are veterans apt in battle and with bows and horsemanship as well. A long tradition of tribal wars made them keep up practising well enough to be respected far and near.

Inuit

The Inuit are friendly but like to be on their own and sometimes act a bit reclusive. Guests are tolerated as long as they do not arrive too often. This may result in fights and the trial of putting the invaders to flight.

Appearance

The Inuit settlements are small and compact, they are mostly located between mountains in the polar region.

Structure of a settlement

A settlement consists of some small wooden hoods and igloos with a maximum of 2 main buildings.

Goods

Because of their meagre living territory, the Inuit are only able to offer goods produced out of hunting the little animals which decided to share their habitate with the Inuit. Those goods enfold:

  • Blubber / Walspeck
  • Tallow as lamp oil / Talg/Fett als Lampenöl
  • Food / Nahrung
  • Ivory (whale and walrus) / Elfenbein (v. Walrossen und Walen)
  • Skin (seals, polar bears and foxes) / Felle v. Robben, Eisbären, Polarfüchsen

Exposure to strangers

Well trained armies should have no problems with calming the Inuit down, but small to medium troops can feel the toughness which an environment of this kind provides it's stout inhabitants with.
