THE OREGON TRAIL INTRODUCTION: Welcome to the Oregon Trail game. There is a party of five people per wagon and there 6 wagons per 1 wagon train. In every wagon, out of the five people, there is one leader. This person is the spokesperson for the entire wagon. But all of the wagon people can make an agreement on a decision. THE OREGON TRAIL ROLES: Hunter - Hunts for food, some animals are deer, horse, pig, cow etc. Leader - Helps confirm decisions and is the spokesperson for the entire group. Takeover - If the leader dies, this person takes over the wagon. Handler - If the wagon group disagrees with a decision this person takes over and makes a final decision. Wagon Bystander - This role does nothing but makes decisions with the rest of the group. NOTE: There will be a randomizer to pick the roles for your wagon. STARTING ROLES (LEADER PICKS ONLY): A banker from New York - You have a budget of $1600.00 to buy supplies for your wagon. A carpenter from Ohio - You have a budget of $1400.00 to buy all types of supplies for your wagon. Be a farmer from Illinois - You only have $400.00 to spend on supplies for your wagon. OREGON TRAIL SHOP: - OXEN $40.00 per yoke - There are 2 oxen per yoke, a recommendation would be 3 yoke, which leads up to six oxen. If you multiply 2 x 3 you get a total of 6 oxen in all. (Your complete total would be $120.00) - FOOD $00.20 per pound - A recommendation of 200 pounds of food will fill up the entire wagon. Your total in all for the food only is $40.00 - AMMUNITION 20 bullets per box for only $2.00 - A recommendation of 5 boxes will lead up to a total of $10.00 with only the ammunition. - SPARE WAGON PARTS max of 3 spare parts for $10.00 each. Spare wagon parts include wagon wheels, wagon axles, and wagon tounges. I recommend getting 3 of each. Which will lead to $90.00 with only the spare wagon parts. NOTE: You can always visit the shop whenever you'd like, but make sure to look at how much more money you have to spend. MAP OF THE OREGON TRAIL: (This is actually based off a real game) CHOICES WHEN CROSSING RIVERS: CHOICES WHEN TRAVELING THE OREGON TRAIL: EXTRA THINGS: This information helps show the date, the weather, your health, how much pounds of food you have, how many miles till your next landmark and how many miles you traveled. This is the date. Speaking of the date, you can decide which month to leave, March, April, May, June, October, December or January. This information needs to be seen during your trail with the wagon trail. It would be wonderful to hear your questions, concerns and other ideas considering this game! I will have a player suggestion section and I will try and update this thread when needed a dramatic change. Thanks for reading! PLAYER SUGGESTIONS: - 5hriyana Says: "Though maybe at the end of the game we can see who really made it to the Oregon Trail, who ever had more pounds of food, great health, etc, will be the winner of the game? And maybe add that we can have a Lead Wagon to make an entire decision for the Wagon Train? You'll have the choices in A, B, C order. And you can do /vote [a.b.c] in the game to pick your choice? Then after you can see results, and it will be a final decision with the Lead Wagon. Also if the died on the trail the are spectaters." - HxpeOfMxrning says, "also question, how long will the game be?": NEW! Time Limit - About 20 minutes per round or 25. Maybe if you didn't finish the Oregon Trail a description of each wagons, health, food, and pace will be show and will be calculated as 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc, etc?
