For all those that are looking for basic game background information this is not such a bad thing to “READ FIRST”. 😉

Was going to post copy pasted stuff from there but that would just fill up forum space.
Therefore for all that it may concern here is the link to a really good site. https://lermuseum.org/new-france-1600-1730Fri, Feb 23rd '18 at 14h 44m 03s #7310
This site is pure gold!!! http://www.coureurdesbois.org/
Here a bit more. The mini map of the Forts is interesting. http://www.thecanadianencyclopedia.ca/en/article/coureurs-de-bois/
And another great historical source site. https://cdnhistorybits.wordpress.com/2016/07/12/voyageurs-and-coureur-des-bois/
This sites content seams a bit wrongful but all around a good place to read and see pictures.
Here a site/ article written by someone that seams to have experience in actual “Wood-runner” ness and gives good Real Life comparisons. http://woodsrunnersdiary.blogspot.de/2010/08/woodsrunners-knives.htmlFri, Feb 23rd '18 at 16h 01m 02s #7311
Natives of North America/ Canada around 1600 – 1700.

Lots of great stuff you’ve found, Sayyed Lance! All this will be important both for game content and hashing out the finer details like map locations, faction traits (urb mentioned wanting to get the indigenous people right the first time) and how the game will play out on the day to day.
Keep Calm and Run On, my dude!
Found a very interesting book called “The Jesuits in North America in the Seventeenth Century”
By Francis Parkman, John Fiske
Provides a wealth of information not only about the Jesuits, but about many aspects of New France and how they related to the Jesuits themselves. Below are some experts relating to the Jesuit bodyguards, a.k.a. The Given

So I just came across the Official “Catalogue of the Museum of Artillery in the Rotunda, Woolwich“and while quite extensive, a quick word-search for thinks like “Flint-lock” or “musket” will get some interesting results. “European match-locks and Wheel-lock Arms” start on pg. 49. “Flint and Percussion-locked Smooth-Bored Muzzle-Loading Arms” start at pg 52.
For example: “Flint-lock musket of the time of James II., A.D. 1685-1688, J. & R. Brookes on lock-plate. Calibre 0.73 in. ; Lenght of barrel 31 in.” and “Flint-Lock Musket, time of William III. , A.S. 1688-1702. Barrel 46 in. : catch to cock: W.R. on lock beneath a crown: calibre 0.772 in. Steel Mounts”
They do not always provide the date, but it appears they are listed chronologically, so if you hit something from the 1800s, you’ve gone too far. It also lists matchlocks and wheel-locks in the same manner.Thu, Mar 15th '18 at 9h 31m 01s #7410
Getting a bit more into detailed “factions” around 1680s Canadian Fur Trade.
This is one of the major players. The Hudson’s Bay Company.
Here the link to a great page of info.
