Northern Games - Culture
Written By: Elizabeth Barrette (Writer), Ellen Million (Editor)
A look at some of the games played by the northerners.

Games bring people closer together and keep them entertained. Many of the northern games draw their inspiration from Native American games, as some of those cultures occupied a similar habitat and level of technology. Other tribal cultures, and even some modern ones, contributed as well. Distinctive aspects of Torn World, such as snow-unicorns and Others, add local color to the games described below. Note that it is common for a game to exist in multiple variations within a culture, or across different cultures. Northerners particularly like it when one game piece or set of pieces can be used for several versions of play, as this maximizes the entertainment to be gained from limited resources.
