Chapter 1

The exact way the Perthsherian people migrated from mainland Asia to the small island in the North Pacific is unknown but scholars have deduced one of two probable answers to how the Perthsherian people were able to arrive on the small island.

The first suggested theory is that while many of early man were migrating over the great land bridge that once connected Asia to America that the land surrounding Perthshire was exposed. As the water rose the early settlers continued up the ancient volcanic mountain until finally reaching a stopping point on today’s Perthshire.

The second suggested theory is a small group of settlers from nearby Russia were out fishing when their boats were caught up in a great typhoon that pushed them out to sea. Amazingly the survived and were washed up on a small island and survived on the local fish and built a small settlement on the island.

While both are suggested to be likely causes for the arrival of Perthsherian’s on the island, it is widely agreed upon that the first theory is the more likely of the two. Regardless by the time around 4000BC had come around there is evidence that man was living on the small island and that he was using crude tools and farming in the northern lowlands and on Yamamotto island.

In comparison the ancient Perthsherian’s were far behind there distant cousins in Egypt but just slightly ahead of there more closely related Chinese cousins. While the Egyptians were forming together to start the lower and upper Egyptian nations Perthshire was just sitting stagnant with 2 tribes in her eastern and western low lands that provided ample farming and fishing venues for their citizens.

Crops were often beans and rice, corn was grown occasionally if the weather was permitting. There was very little class structure everyone worked together and the land was divided based on family size and often included a small hut and farm land surrounding the hut for the feeding of the family. The head of the house hold and the eldest son would often go fish while the rest of the family farmed with the matriarch of the family cooking and maintaining the household.

Around 2,900BC the Ludmellian tribe of Western Perthshire had devised a small class structure and built a small government system and a government building made of clay brick in the center of the huts so that food could be more evenly regulated and farmland could be more evenly distributed. It is unclear as to why this happened but theory’s range from a small famine to potential land disputes by two more prominent Ludmellian citizens.

The ludmellian’s shortly thereafter devised a currency and a marketplace so that food could be traded amongst citizens. This allowed for a greater expansion of food and lead to a population boom in the ludmellian tribe. Taking note the Perthsherian’s quickly followed setting up their own class structure and government and marketplace buildings.

With the invention of currency the two tribes began to see a more distinct class system. Those who ran the distribution and marketplace often did not have to farm so they were payed a communal salary by the farmers. If the leaders did a good job they were given a larger sum of money than if they did poorly. This system worked well so that the ruling class did not get all the power. By the mid 2800’s BC the class system had built up so that there were two leading monarchs in the tribes; the Hazo Family from Perthshire and the Glinka family from Ludmellia.

The simple agricultural ways of the two tribes would forever change when they learned the mountain range on the northern border of the mountain pass that connected the two villiages was full of a flammable liquid that had been formed in the mountain; liquid natural gas. The intense pressure of the volcanic rock had trapped a huge pocket of flammable methane gas from an ancient eruption that over time and pressure and heat condensed into a liquid form and filled a large cavern in the mountain. The Cavern, about the size of Mt. St. Hellens in Washington was filled completely with Liquid Natural gas. The flammable substance allowed for Perthshire to tap into a great energy source to help aid the construction of buildings and tools.

Naturally the two tribes ran into an impass after a few short years, who would control the land on which the massive reserve stood? Being about half way between both tribes the answer was unclear and the two families Hazo and Glinka chose to split the land as best they could.

Naturally conflict arose between the miners that were on the border of the Ludmellian and Perthsherian claims to the gas. When things became bloody the Hazo’s and the Glinka’s met again to determine how this neutral land would be split. They came to a rather interesting decision that would ultimately land the fate of the country for the rest of history.

Chapter 2

When hostilities emerged between miners on the line splitting the two tribes of the islands natural gas supply there leaders, Samuel Ha-zi and Me-lo Glinka were called upon to provide a solution that would fairly, and clearly distribute the supply between the two tribes.

Glinka and Ha-zi met in early spring to determine how they would distribute the gas. Realizing that the two tribes were bound to fight over the land they came to no peaceful solution. Neither leader was interested in subjecting his people to war and essentially destroying the population on the island. After much discussion the two determined the best solution was to have a tournament that would determine who would receive a 30 foot buffer zone between the two mining camps.

The tournament was officially dubbed the 'war games' and features 8 of the best warriors from the tribes. 4 representing each tribe meat annually at Ancient Stadium (also know as Perthshire Equestrian park), and Ludmellia amphitheater for a fighting tournament.

In the style of martial arts the aim of the fighters is not to kill there opponent but disarm, and render them trapped. Each fighter is given a blunt end, unsharpened sword they can use as a weapon. The swords are handled by the office of the king (or queen) directly to prevent any tampering with the weapons. The 10 day tournament and festival is the longest running sporting event in world history.

The tournament starts on the 21st of April, one month after the spring equinox and runs until May Day, as adapted during the 1900's.

Day 1 is the Opening Ceremony's held in the Minnearly Pass and the largest stadium of the host city. For Perthshire that currently is the National Stadium, for Ludmellia it's University Field.... naturally the Perthsherian hostings tend to be more of spectacle than the Ludmellian war games.

Day 2 is the opening round, 4 fights are held during the day (ideally, run overs are common). Putting each fighter ranked 1-4 against the opposite of the other.

Ludmellia 1 v Perthshire 4
Ludmellia 4 v Perthshire 1
Ludmellia 2 v Perthshire 3
Ludmellia 3 v Perthshire 2

The 1 v 4 contests are held earlier in the day in order to have the more contested fights at a time when more people can come to watch them. Often the 2v3 fights are the most heavily watched fights of the opening day.

On Day 2 the field is burned, literally, in the spirit of the phoenix. The ashes are spread after the Day 2 (or night 2 really) bonfire and a grassy turf is placed over the ashes of the original field. In ancient times the event was much longer and included new grass being grown on the burnt competition field.

Day 3 is the day where the new 'grass' is replaced on the field

Day 4 round 2 and fits the highest remaining seed against the lowest remaining from the other city with the winners facing in the finals*.

*In the case where the fighters from the same city win both semifinal matches the championship is replaced with a parade in that city and the title is awarded to both participants. In ancient time it was considered such an honor to sweep the finals that the loosing city would forfeit its claim on the pass for a full year.

Day 5 is a second bonfire that burns the field that the semi finals was held on in the same spirit as the day 2 fire.

Day 6 is a second returfing of the field if necessary. If the field does not need to be used for the finals, new grass seed is put down.

Regardless of the outcome of the semi finals Day 7 is a ceremonial day of rest. The entire country is essentially shut down. So much so that mercenary's from Russia and the United States militaries and coast guards are brought in to 1. Protect Perthshire from outside attacks, 2. act as a police force for Perthshire, 3. provide health services. Everything, including the airport and the palace are closed for the day, all business's and schools are closed. It is actually illegal, punishable by deportation to do 'work' on this day, to the point that teachers are encouraged not to assign home work to students. The only buildings left open are police, and fire stations and Perthshire and Ludmellia hospitals (the regional clinics are closed) and even those are run by the US or Russian Military.

Day 8 is the Championship fight if needed. If not needed there is a Parade held in the winning city. There are other small fights that happen during the day regardless of the fight, and this is often another day off for Perthshire residents.

Day 9 is the Champions feast, comparable to the American Thanksgiving the feast features many seafood dishes that are often reserved for that day including oysters, squid, octopus, shark and whale meat, along with most of the regular standards of crab, salmon, and tuna.

Day 10 is May Day, May 1st, and was adapted to the celebration in the 1900's the Day is spent like the rest around the world and is often met with high criticism from Perthshire's American residents since the cold war. The day is more or less a day of recovering from the previous days binge for most but the large Russian born population of Perthshire celebrates the holiday fevorishly.

The final day is not technically a day on the official tournament but a closing ceremony of some sort has taken place since 1843. It's usually smaller and much less followed than the opening ceremony and takes place regardless of who hosts the tournament in the Minnearly pass.
