What is it about?
Tribes are a new thing at Blavicon 2019. It is a group of visitors which openly supports one of the four clans. Each tribe has several formalities such as a name, custom visuals and a warcry. Each tribe also has its own story and motives to support its given clan. It doesn’t have to fully agree with the clan; it can also interpret its politics differently. Each tribe has its own leader or „thane“. However, tribes and thanes are completely in the hands of visitors who take full charge of their activities.
How to become a tribe member?
Did you find a tribe you want to be a part of? Does your tribe even gives you some benefits? Wait for Blavicon and find your tribe leader. If you meet the tribe’s entry conditions, its thane will accept you in the tribe. As a member, you are entitled to use your common warcry, sit at the same table with other tribe members and take advantage of all benefits your tribe can offer you. However, as soon as you acquire some influence token, you should give them to your thane. They will use them to support your clan. Of course, you can keep your tokens secret and vote on your own – or give them to some other clan! Likewise, your thane can betray your tribe and vote for another clan entirely.
Tired of being a member of your tribe? Join another. Or leave all of them and play on your own. Being a tribe member gives you social benefits above all. You will be inside a large group of people with a common goal. However, you can be a member of more tribes than one, you can switch them as you wish, or leave them without fearing any consequences. Thanes should indulge you so that you stay loyal to your tribe and bring more influence tokens.
How to found a tribe?
All you need to do is to come up with a tribe and register it here on this website. Should you have any concerns or questions, contact us – we’re here to help. We will accept the registration, review it, and if there’s nothing missing, we’ll approve it (or fine-tune it if need be). After that, we will be choosing tribes based on popularity. We will determine the appropriate way based on the number of tribes. Final tribes for Blavicon 2019 will therefore be known still this year.
What do I have to do as a thane?
First come up with your tribe, then ideally recruit some followers. Only the most popular tribes will move up to be the official tribes of Blavicon 2019. At the con, you should take care of your members, recruit more, and support your clan. Or you can be an irresponsible thane and not give a damn about anything. It’s up to you. No one will be checking you or giving you tasks. This is your game!
What’s in it for the thane?
You’re wondering why you should be seeking members and influence tokens, anyway? It’s simple. As a thane, you will be given food and drinks for free for the tokens you deliver. For example, you will get a beer for ten tokens. So if you have enough active members, you will be supplied with booze and food during the entire con! Also, you will be enjoying your own game. Have it as you make it.
Will the tribe be supported by Blavicon in any way?
All advancing tribes will be supported individually with custom banners, badges etc. It all depends on the agreement between a thane and Blavicon organizers. Anyway, you don’t have to worry we wouldn’t support you.
