Here is what our Scouts came up with?
Coins = Poker chips

-Every player starts with 8 coins
-If you win a 1 on 1 Battle, you roll a dice, the number you get on your roll is what you have to pay the other player.
-Meals cost 3 coins
-Sleeping in village (Using a tent), costs 10 coins.
-Camp site = Village -> village was a no fighting zone. Everyone was safe in the village.
-Kitchen area = Tavern in the village
-Camp = The land
-Outhouses = The Throne
How a 1 on 1 battle worked.
-If you touch another player out of the village and shout “I challenge thee!” Battle begins.
-Players can hit each other with foam weapons only. If a limb is hit, you loose that limb. example, your hit on the right leg, must only hop with left leg. Get hit on right arm, you loose using that arm. If you get touched on both legs, you were on your knees.
-Fighting is mostly for play. Battle is won by rolling the dice.
-Dice roll: you roll a dice, the number you get on your roll is what you have to pay the other player.
-You cannot challenge the same player for atleast an hour.
Hint: Shields make it tougher for someone to hit your limb. Armour doesn’t count.
Side Quests (optional):
-Rescue at the Tower : Climbing wall, for every completed climb, Scout gets 2 coins
-Escort the Magistrate: Magistrate gets in trouble often, needs an armed escort to help him hike over to his favourite spot safely. 4 coins each escort.
-Cartographer needed: Best and most accurate drawn map of the land gets 10 coins.

-The arena: Sunday, a large circle of rope wast laid down for Heres to challenge other heres to 1 on 1 battles. A bet was made, challengers would each place 5 coins in a pot, winner that bested the other wins the all the coins.
This battle was judged by villagers (Venturers). And had an arbiter, same limb loss rule. But once you lost all 4 limbs, you lost the battle.

Talismans can be found near the village to help you not die on the first touch. (Exchange talisman for life) Zombies will go back to their slumber if all 5 picks of Magical tablet has been restored. (faces pieces of styrofoam combined together makes a protective tablet) For every pice of tablet returned, hero gets 5 coins.
