An Age of Nationalism

The Middle Ages began with the ancient Germanic tribes overrunning the Roman Empire, but by its end, the modern nation-states of Europe had emerged. It was a time when people began to look beyond their local tribal identities to see themselves as part of a larger nation.

See: Braveheart, Joan of Arc, or legends about Frederick Barbarossa

Examples of…

  • Invoking: You call upon your fellow countrymen to act for the good of the nation.
  • Enduring: You choose to remain loyal to other ties that you hold in higher regard than nationality, whether local bonds, common faith, or even a universal bond of humankind.
  • Compelling: You must stand up to defend your nation’s honor.
  • Declaring: You see someone acting in a manner stereotypical of his nationality.
  • Substituting: You can’t use a dream aspect to substitute for a skill, though the GM might use it to set a dynamic difficulty in some specific circumstances.
