SNOWBOUND OFFICIAL GUIDE || UPDATED 01/28
« on: March 14, 2018, 08:11:41 PM »

❅ INTRODUCTION !
Oh hello there! Welcome to Snowbound! Did you walk all the way out here? You'll catch cold standing out here in the snow all day. Come inside quickly; the caves and company are much warmer. We love having new arrivals. I'm sure you'll be a great hit with the kids. they've been looking for someone to bug. Only partly kidding of course. We have hot chocolate inside. Won't you join us for a while?

❅ TERRITORY !
With the destruction of their old home, Snowbound moves to the frozen lake in the territory. They are nestled within a mountain range, which is covered in snow for most if not all of the year.

Snowbound's MAIN CAMP is a rocky spire in the middle of the lake, which is accessible by bridges. There are wooden staircases leading to higher levels of the spire, and people often have huts hooked to the spire itself. Some may choose to nestle in small dens carved from the spire. The only thing one must watch out for is slipping due to the ice that forms underneath the snow.

Ref 1 Ref 2

The FISHING HUTS are for those who cannot brave the climb to the spire, or for those who would like to go fishing -- ice fishing or regular fishing. These take the appearance of cabins, nestled on the shores of the lake, and of the river that feeds it. These offer a warm, cozy home to those who live there.

Ref 1 Ref 2

The MOUNTAINS surround Snowbound, partially providing a natural barrier. They are also meant to be the hosts of fun games, such as snowboarding, sledding, etc. The mountains often appear blue, purple, or black in color, however they are most often blanketed in snow.

Ref 1 Ref 2 Ref 3

The HOT SPRINGS offer relaxation. They are often considered the warmest place within the territory, a place carved out of rock where hot water floods. Most of the time, they're a blue-green in color.

Ref 1 Ref 2

❅ TITLES !
In Snowbound, titles are given to members in the form of pendents. These pendents are then put on a necklace, which Snowbounders are expected to wear to meetings and other significant political events.

Recipients:


❅ TRADITIONS !
The people of Snowbound are free to practice their own beliefs, so long as they don't bring conflict with them. On the other hand, those who are tied to the tribe may choose to follow a loose form of animism; the belief that people, plants, objects, and weather phenomena hold a spiritual essence. In short, some believe that nature in itself should be treated with the utmost respect and should never be carelessly wasted or destroyed.

1. Hot chocolate is a staple of Snowbound, provided almost 24/7 to everyone and anyone who wants a warm treat. Joiners and visitors from other clans are given cocoa as a sort of peace offering.

2. For their titles, Snowbound gives each member a necklace and as they earn the titles and they get different animal pendents to put on that necklace to represent which ones they've received. 

3. On the nights when Aurora Borealis- or "the Dancing Lights"- can be seen, each and every member leave their homes to go camping out in the snow, setting up tents and coming together as a family. During this time, it is possible for the living to commune with long deceased ancestors provided by a spiritual veil gifted by the Aurora. At sunrise, a flurry of games and activities set up by a chosen few are put into motion, kick-starting a full and joyous day of festivities.

6. At the beginning of every month, Snowbound visits the lake and has a bonfire and shares scary stories with their allies and neutrals. This event is called a Mass Gathering.

7. Snowbound also believes in superstitions, mostly used to tell scary stories during the Mass Gathering. Believing in these creatures are not mandatory, but it is funny to see others' reactions about them! These superstitions are detailed below.
Spoiler: ShowHide
Wendigo - A man-eating monster, believed to have been created by evil spirits, such as people who have been consumed by greed.
Bi-Bon - A spirit believed to control and influence winter
Misigniebig - A big horned serpent that lives in lakes and is believed to eat humans.

❅ HISTORY !
Leigh's Reign: ShowHide
On March 15, 2018, Leigh founded Snowbound. He had a very short reign, and soon went missing after founding Snowbound.

Jacob's Reign: ShowHide
On April 29, 2018, Jacob stepped up to leader since their former Chief went missing. On May 20, 2018, humans started poisoning Snowbound's territory, and Snowbound soon had to leave and stay in The Typhoon until they chased off the humans and found a new home. On June 11, 2018 Snowbound and The Typhoon fought the humans and Snowbound left their current home, looking for a new one, and arrived in their new territory on June 17, 2018. Jacob soon announced the developments of shops and syamine as Snowbound's currency on June 25, 2018

Atbash's Reign: ShowHide
On July 5, 2018, Atbash stepped up as leader, as per Jacob's request. On July 11, 2018, she announced some major chances to the ranks, as well as getting rid of Snowbound's religion. On July 18, 2018, Atbash announced changes to the titles and introduced a new, limited edition title. On July 25, 2018, Atbash started the Ambassador Program and announced that The Typhoon were no longer allies, as well as a couple other alliance updates. On July 29, 2019, Atbash created a new tradition, which was a massive success. On the August 1, 2018 meeting, Atbash exiled Stryker for attacking Izuku. During the August 8, 2018 meeting, Atbash announced changes to the shop system and declared a group known as The Pitt as enemies. On August 13, 2018, Snowbound was taken over by Stryker and The Pitt. On September 3, 2018, Snowbound rebelled against The Pitt. Upon gaining control, Atbash held a meeting and introduced the Tempest title on September 8, 2018. On September 10, 2018, Snowbound had a festival to celebrate their freedom. On October 1, 2018, Atbash got rid of the shop system.

On October 7, 2018, spirits started popping up in camp. On November 2, 2018, however, Snowbound was lit on fire, ultmately destroying the camp and forcing the tribe to disband and flee.

❅ LIST OF PREDECESSORS !
In the Banquet Hall, there is a list of current high positions and title holders, as well as a list of former members of the ranks and former title holders. The current Hailcaller will update this list as soon as they can, as the goal is to keep the list as recent as possible. In addition to the former rank holders, there is a list of former ranks that describes what they had done and what happened to the rank, if there have been any changes to them.

Of course, with the Banquet Hall being destroyed, these papers have, unfortunately been lost.

FORMER RANKS: ShowHide

Chief (HP) - The Chief position was first introduced when Leigh, the founder, created Snowbound. This rank was changed to be called Hailcaller during Atbash's reign.
Hailcaller (HP) - The Hailcaller position was first introduced by Atbash after she was left to lead. However, when the camp was destroyed, she was forced to flee, leaving Snowbound with no leader.
Snowseeker (HP) - The Snowseeker rank was first introduced during Leigh's reign and has remained unchanged so far. Unfortunately with their camp being destroyed, this rank has been lost and due to no Snowseeker being assigned whenever Atbash fled, Snowbound was left with no leader.
Frosthealer (HP) - The Frosthealer rank was first introduced during Leigh's reign and has remained unchanged so far. Unfortunately, this rank was abolished whenever Snowbound was forced to flee whenever their camp was burned down.
Tenderfoots (sHP) - The Tenderfoot rank was first introduced during Leigh's reign, though this rank has been merged with Flurryhosts and Lionhearts to form Polarhearts during Atbash's reign.
Arcticplayer (HP) - The Arcticplayer rank was first introduced during Jacob's reign and has remained unchanged so far. Unfortunately, this rank was abolished whenever Snowbound was forced to flee whenever their camp was burned down.
Flurryhosts (sHP) - The Flurryhost rank was first introduced during Jacob's reign, though his rank has been merged with Tenderfoots and Lionhearts to form Polarhearts during Atbash's reign.
Snowstriker (HP) - The Snowstriker rank was first introduced during Leigh's reign, and the rank has since been changed to be called Icestriker during Atbash's reign. Unfortunately, this rank was abolished whenever Snowbound was forced to flee whenever their camp was burned down.
Lionhearts (sHP) - The Lionheart rank was first introduced during Leigh's reign, though this rank has been merged with Flurryhosts and Tenderfoots to form Polarhearts under Atbash's reign.
Polarhearts (sHP) - The Polarheart rank was introduced by Atbash after she was left to lead. Unfortunately, this rank was abolished whenever Snowbound was forced to flee whenever their camp was burned down.
