Reception & Embarkation

Welcome to Kebec. When you first land within the realm, you will be wondering where you are. The Reception Area is on the docks within the Port of La Rochelle. There will be one of three ships waiting to provide you with a berth for your voyage to Kebec. Your Purse is laden with 50 pieces of Silver to start you off. Spend Wisely! You may not have an opportunity on board to earn any, until the ship arrives in the New World.

  • Brewer
  • Cobbler
  • Cook
  • Cultist
  • Doctor
  • Farmer
  • Gardener
  • Glass Blower
  • Locksmith

As with most things, you can choose what you want to become, try one or many different trades until you find the one that suits you. Choose Wisely, as the word gets around quickly if you change trades like some people change their socks & underwear.

Your Trade Skills will begin with an apprenticeship, so listen, learn and hone your skills to perfection while under a Master's Supervision. If you learn well, you may find yourself the Master of your own Apprentices one day.

Apprenticeships

Your Apprenticeship within Kebec begins as soon as you arrive. The arrival of the Supply Ship is an Event that Every Skills Master anxiously awaits in order to recruit an Apprentice. Don't be fooled though, an Apprenticeship is both an honour and a curse. Fail your indentured Master and you may find yourself living in the street with no place else to go, but the Bastille.

Those unlucky enough, to not be offered an Apprenticeship, have limited choices. Being a Soldier isn't so bad. You get to stay out after curfew and maybe catch a few arrows while on guard duty. If you end up looking like a pin cushion, you may want to become a Tailor.

Apprentice Indentures are Legal Contracts!

Your Name, be Proud of it. You only get one. If you Can't Read or Write, just set your Mark X, and carry-on. You May Find the Time Later to Learn your letters.

Once you are indentured, your life belongs to the Master. It is their Job to Feed, Clothe and Shelter You until such a time as they deem you worthy of your 1st Skills Test. Be Warned; Fail any Skills Test, and you may find the Master very unhappy. It is not uncommon for any Master, to barter or trade an Indenture Contract, sometimes to be rid of an unworthy Apprentice or to simply recoup their investment to someone willing to pay them.
Bon Chance!

Family Life in 1661

Strength Through Unity - Unity Through Family! Alas yes; They are the ties that do Truly Bind. Faith & Trust are the cornerstone of every Family. They unite us together both in sorrow and in celebration. By Decree of the Governor of Kebec, every young couple united in Matrimony is required by Law to have a minimum of three (3) offspring. The Governor is very generous, in that he will personally endow every Mother with 50 pieces of Silver for each legitimate child.

To be Entitled to Receive the Governor's Endowment, each Couple United in Matrimony, may simply register with the Local Magistrate along with a copy of their Marriage Certificate. Only Offspring born within wedlock are eligible to be counted. The Magistrate will record the birth along with Parental details for the prosperity of the entire Colony.

Within Kebec, Unwed Mothers are considered ineligible, and their offspring will be adorned with the Surname Scarlet. The Governor has thusly spoken, therefore it shall be henceforth.
