    What would happen if you dropped a town of Canadians in Faerun?
    >> Anonymous 03/12/11(Sat)20:53 No.14221094
    Canadian here, let me use my authority to answer your question.
    They'd get killed.
    Canadians are pascifists, have a non-violent culture that is also afraid of everything. They also mock everything outside of their own country, while somehow not having patriotism.
    Canadians would get their shit wrecked.

    American who visits Canada a lot, they'd get allllll fucked up. Unless you grabbed some village from nunavut an put them in faerun's arctic or something. But then they'd have to fight frost giants and white dragons and ice worms and get fucked up all over again. It'd just take longer.

    Because you don't just wake up one morning with WORD OF LAW floating around your noggin. There's a whole ritual compnent of prayer and devotion that no real faith would do because it doesn't actually grant you spells in the real world.

    Some gods - not our gods though - might send visions to their worshippers of our presence, given the potential benefit. But that applies to Hextor as well as Heironeous.

    Look at that Buffy/FR crossover - it has some decent ideas on how shit would go down. Even if it is mired in the rather boring canon characters on both sides - a purer Island in the Sea of Time scenario is what we're discussing.

At least a few people will unknowingly follow the ways of a specific god now various political and religious groups are guaranteed to investigate and they find these people and in turn use them to gain a foothold by introducing the gods and eventually you will get priests and paladins( even f only minor ones).

Also, orchards, orchards everywhere.

    All these mentions of guns and tanks actually has me wondering...
    First: The Drow are known to regularly discover gunpowder technology only to kill off whoever actually figured it out this time so he can't fuck up the status quo, what are the odds that they decide it's time to actually hold onto those inventors?

    Second: firearms are already fairly common place in faerun as is, hell they even have spaceports and the dwarves run a space station near the moon, and let's not get started on the death cannon made to annihilate stars. Would the canadians be seen as low-tech? This implies we're talking before 3e/4e cut out most of the high-end stuff.

    However our gun to person ratio is pretty god damn high around here, and unlike in big cities we're not talking about 9mm handguns, we're talking hunting rifles and assault rifles cause... well America... yeah...

    Canada has guns too... but its just kind of our thing down here.

    The problem... we do have Minnesota nice, but it is nothing compared to Canada nice, and I'm sure we'd make more enemies and less friends than our Canadian brethren. Now if our two settlements were next to each other we'd be golden.

    I imagine it would be a lot of disgust considering how sexually open the FR tends to be, where gender bending, dick girls, extreme bdsm, and orgies are commonplace.
    And those are just the examples that are supported by at least one deity each!

    We would basically become grubby surface dwarf lumberjacks and own the ever loving shit out of everything.


    Also depending on who exactly got nabbed, we would basically revolutionize one of several fields (Logging/Timbering, Construction, Ship Building, Farming, Mining, Scribing, government).

    >surface dwarfs
    You know there isn't really a distinction between surface and below ground dwarves in the FR.
    In fact the dwarves that had the original ancestral home where the great rift now is located, are known to be both great tunnel fighters and also ride griffons into battle.
    One of their famous maneuvers involves carrying a special shield made to be easily grabbed onto by a swooping down griffon, so that the dwarf can jump off mid-flight, axe someone in mid-air, and then their mount can swoop in and catch them before they became a hairy-pancake on the ground.

    Though really that's nothing when compared to some of the fighting styles of other races in the realms.

    But really you're just forgetting about how using too many trees or water will have giant dragons made out of water attacking the city until every man woman and child is slain.

    fatties .... die quickly.

    Sorry boss, fatties um actually are a good thing. There's going to be a largish period with little to no food right at the begining and someone who's all hipster and shit ain't gonna have a good time without their fucking hipster java juice and overpriced latties to carry them energywise threw.

    Their's this interesting FAT paradox, that fat people in disadvantagous situations do better are healthier, etc. then skinny people, dispite their size? Why that fat is a sign of success. Regardless big people tend to be strong then you might expect, as having to carry arround 300lbs of blubber has an impact on your musclature.

    Just some food for thought,

We'll be tolerant of people's beliefs, but quickly turn nasty if they try to teach our kids their "one true faiths", and our Paladins will be made of members of the Athar. Or maybe we won't have any.

    Expect psychic warriors all over the place, and extensive programs for breeding better species of warmoose and bear. We may make nature our bitch, but most of us actually like her, and damned if we'll let some civilization take our sled trails.

    We have more than enough of a head on our shoulders to steal whatever the other sides are using and take their capitals over with it. Its how we get half our equipment anyways.

    Canada is the only country with a 2-0 win record against the United States in war (Revolutionary and 1812) so I give them due respect.

    Gun ownership is low compared to the United States. Only 30.8 per 100 residents compared to our 88.8, but I assume any random town will have enough firepower to defend itself until established. After that you are into a 1633 by Eric Flint (book series) situation where a small town with SCIENCE! kicks the ass of the primitive screwheads around them.

    gun ownership is low, but those with guns tend to stockpile them.

    guns are commonplace in small towns.

    Plenty of guns in canada.

    not to mention any police station or RCMP hq will have plenty of weapons.

    We'd get shit done, since we're used to having to build shit fast.
    I'd worry about getting grains and what not, but if friendly local contact can be made we'll be able to get grains to grow.

    after that yeah mythical beast will be a problem, but i think the average canadian is better than a fantasy commoner. Plenty of books would be transported as well so some knowledge would allow a stepping stone of modernization above that of the surrounding empires.

    the first order of business would be to clear land for crops, and build a fort.

    Being fat is a good sign when you are the apex predator, not when you are the potential prey. Also "fat" does not = "big" fat = fat. Scrawny isn't in for a good time either, but at the end of the day scrawny will outrun more apex predators than will fat, but fit has the chance of eventually becoming the apex predator. There is a different between being a bear of a man and being a fat turd.

    I can imagine the reaction of neighbouring townsfolk when the newfies suddenly appear in Faerun.

    >Have you spoken with the newcomers yet? What do they call themselves?
    Yes I have, and I believe they call themselves Noufn'landrs. I think they may have some Dwarven ancestry.

    >Have you learned anything of their religion?
    Well I thought I did, so I asked to know more about their "Jesus H Murphy" to which the man started shouting about their Lord Tunderin. I think it's best we leave that topic alone.

    those fat studies are done on human's where this apex preditor bullshit your talking about doesn't exist.

    Short story. you agree with me, scrawny is as bad as lard ass.

    What I'm also saying is that Lard Ass comes with several other benefits (such as being able to survive a few days without a whole lot of calory , which is just as useful for a delirious fever as say having to fucking bushwack for a few days).

    Short Story, I think its easier for Fat people to fit up then scrawny people. Fat people are missing exercise, which will be fixed. That whole scrawny outrunning the fatty will work, presuming that one and only one predator is there, and they only kill to eat, both of which seems unlikely in faerun (intelligent magical beasts seem more inclined to group behavior and cruelty then say mountain lions).

    AS far as Newfs, I sincerely think they wouldn't even notice. They'd just rename themselves newfs and go on their merry way.

    Now Newf just needs a racial type. 2bcontinued
