Hello everybody, first and foremost my english is far from perfect (not my native languague). I been working in a series of lifepaths for a semi-historical campaing scenario based around the iroquois confederation and his political and cultural relations with the europeans during the XVII and XVIII century. The european lifepaths are mostly the same has the ones presented in the Gold edition (with some modification concerning colonial professions and including firearms in many other LP’s) while these represent the setting for natives members of the federation (but i believe con be modified to emulate other tribal cultures).

The new traits are mostly character traits and a couple who give Affiliation/reputation with the tribe or the coucil. “Royaneh” is a fancy name for the Sachem while “owachira” refers to the matrilineal kinship and council system (im very excited to play all the politics of this systems in Burning wheel!)
a) About the native “cultural” traits is too powerful assing a trait that give an affiliation whit the tribe?
b) I’m also listening suggestions about modifications, new lifepaths or general advice. I love Burning wheel and I wish it were more popular in spanish speaking countries
Most of my “research” to make the Lp’s is from wikipedia and various random internet sites
