Dear friends,

Read Caspian's Design Journal on Tribes to learn about how they were developed. Specific details about each of the twelve tribes will be released daily over the next few days as well.

The Q&A will take place on our channel on Thursday, June 8th at 1PM PDT / 4PM EDT / 8PM GMT / 8PM UTC. We will be taking questions primarily from this thread. Please don't clutter this thread with discussion, only post your questions or vote up the ones you want to hear answered in the Q&A.

Additional threads will be opened up for the additional Q&As.

Follow these rules when posting questions for the Q&A.


  1. Please limit questions to 1 question per post, so it can be easily up-voted/down-voted
  2. Please limit yourself to 3 posts for a maximum of three questions per community member
  3. Keep your question brief - that makes it easier to read, and quicker to answer
  4. Make sure to upvote the posts of others you're most interested in hearing the answers to

Will some tribes have genetic or environmental predispositions towards influencing whether or not a member of that tribe has a certain kind of talent or magical ability/trait? (If you get lucky enough to get one.)

For example, a snow dwelling/cold dwelling tribe member be predisposed toward cold weather control vs finding water ability.

Will all tribes recover/lose fatigue faster or slower compared to the others? For example, would one tribe get more fatigued than another performing the same act such as mining or farming?

For Mayor pledges and above, will the leaders of settlements be forced into spawning as the tribe that is native to the biome their settlement is located in, or will they have the option to choose a different tribe or neighboring one? For example, your settlement is located in a Kypiq biome, but you'd rather be a Brudvir when you spawn in. Will there be that option?
