Good morning and welcome to another installment of Primordial! Right now we're going to start the South Continent Tribal Game, all are invited to participate. To start a tribe, choose one of five available sentient species in the South, make up a tribe name and tribal symbol for them, and pick a starting location using this map right here.
Of course, each of the five sentients have their own advantages and disadvantages, as we'll detail more below.

As with much of this continent.
If nothing happened to them, this pic is the proper Puruu scale. The shorter one is the average. Large is the maximum size they reach in old age.

Log'eadz are the biggest if not counting an Elan's antlers.

Geists are pretty spot on.

Don't know about Shwirms.

Doing this game:
So you got yourself a tribe, what now? Well, first you can state what kind of GMing you'd like to have. GM (me and nongent would provide a large input for your tribe, from which you can decide what to do next), Self-GM (you dictate all the roll results and story for your tribe, we only interfere if there's a major gamebreaking dispute), and Assisted GM (we provide the roll results, stuff outside of the tribe and upon request).

All rolls in this game will use d20s, so note the dice when you want to roll. It is preferable to roll for a lot of things in one post, since it will free up post space.
Oh, almost forgot, if you decide to go with GM or assisted GM, also state if you want hardcore mode or not. In Hardcore mode, failures are more catastrophic, successes less epic, and your tribe could be wiped off the map completely.
You can also state if you want your tribe to be social (in which they will get contact with other tribes earlier) or isolated (discovery by other tribes only possible very late in the game), player vs player combat (yes or no; if yes, your tribe can go into hostility with another tribe and vice versa).
Next posts, I shall detail the roll results needed for self-GM.

>> No.20067665

>>20067494
Self-GM roll results.
In this game, you roll when you want to try out something new, invent or upgrade something, or explore. For inventions and the like, if you get a continuous string of 3 failures, you still get the invention, but it will be crude. It can be improved, however, as long as you succeed the improvement roll.
When interacting with another tribe (outside of combat), it is supposed to be done without rolls, since dice diplomacy method are not as realistic as normal diplomacy.

That said, here are the usual severity of results:
1 fucking bad. really fucking bad. (death, crippling, coma, etc)
2-3 fucking bad, not as bad as one. (loss of limb, but life goes on.)
4-6 bad, but recoverable (badly injured but will recover)
7-9 Meh. status quo stays the same. (if starving, you find just enough food to surive and keep starving, instead of die.)
10-13 minor positive
14-16 positive
17-19 very fucking good
20 a legendary act/ event/ result

If hardcore mode is on:
1 is death, horrible ultra death with a ripple effect to the rest of the tribe
the 2-3. also death. basically, the bad is worse, and the good isint as good. a 20, is just something that is pretty nice, with 14-16, and 17-19 being merged into an area of simply ok, to good results.

For exploring, you can roll a minimal of two dice: the progress of the travel, and the result of the travel. 1 is a disaster or attack of some sort that prevents any movement, and may harm or kill your travelers. 2-5 is a reduction in speed to 1/2. 6-19 is normal travel speed. 20 you must have found some good crack, because you are moving at 1.5 speed.

If you want, you can roll to decide direction, maybe if one of your tribesman decide to wander in unfamiliar territory.
1-6 turn 45 degrees left
7-14 go straight
15 -20 turn 45 degrees right

Running two tribes this time. Turning hardcore on for both. These sprites fit in the blocks quite well, so they'll serve as my map markers.
To anyone else, no rules against running multiple.


Yapap
Puruus living around H, 16.
They live between the splits of the river, where Lubs and trees are within close proximity to each other.
Their bedding and egg pools are constructed up in the trees, make of Hexis leaves adhered together with their own saliva. They are lead by a single elder, usually the oldest, and thus largest. They worship a pantheon of gods which command the world around them, but there is one they revere above all else; Ramur. Just as microscopic jellyfish make up the bodies of Puruus, they believe that they came from the body of Ramur.


Vierachè
Geists living in the valley between the mountains at Q, 12.
A rather laid-back tribe, the Vierachè live along the slopes of a valley next to a hot spring. Their chief is the large alpha male of the pride. They hunt and gather food down in the valley to bring up to their home, which is a large den dug into the ground not far from the spring. Their beliefs are that the sounds of the wind are the voices of spirits from the Great Empty. A shaman provide guidance to the tribe based on what she hears from the spirits. (The Great Empty the sky. As Geists rely on echo location, they're unable to get any feedback, so it just appears to be an endless void).
Most of the time though, they just lounge in the spring water.

As for GMing, I'll self-GM the small lore-related rolls, and leave the more important things such as exploration to you and nongent. If either of you get some sort of idea for one of my more minor rolls, please share. It'll probably be better than something I'd think of myself (like the Burrahn blowguns and Lenarus going into the wilderness).

Starting position: I 12

The Iminye Tribe is divided between four different families. Grim, Fiery Messenger, Inviting Bark, and Earthshaking Grub. Each emphasizes a different tribal idea. They are seasonal migrates that travel in the Plains during the Time of Grass and in the Forest during the Time of Leaves. It is currently the beginning of the Time of Grass. The Tribe is preparing to wander the Plains, the hunters eager to prove themselves in the Wild Hunts. The grazers dread leaving their ideal lifestyle, but understand. They are ready gather oats and grains of prairie grass.

This is good starting point for me, but I should've been in bed hours ago. So I'll start making actions and rolling when I get back. Look forward to a great game. I plan on directing alot of my tribes actions, and am open to other player interactions.

A little update, because it always happens: lets say you want to quit the game because you aren't interested anymore/ too busy and need/ want to abandon your tribe. that's fine, but your tribe falls under NPC category, and is no longer protected as it would be with a player tribe. That doesn't mean it will be outright annihilated. It does mean that absorption by another tribe, conquest, destruction, or fading into the background are quite possible.

If you think you can throw a few token posts here or there to keep them going, and want that, do so. If you dont care, state that too. If you plan to come back, but might be gone for a little while, let us know, just dont go silent without warning.

Okay, putting the symbols on the map. I just need confirmation on Slanera's start position, K12 or G 8?

This is more of a tool for the GMs, but it will show locations of major blung hordes, and dream rot infections.

The players who first encounter these things will name them.

Blung fields grow and grow until they cannot self sustain anymore, they disperse, and are diminished, able to move on, and possibly split off more self sustaining hordes.

They are at their weakest during initial colonization of an area, and their strongest right before dispersal. Blung fields will occupy a single square, and radiate out influence, as the central square grows in concentration of presence, it will begin to extend influence out around it, increasing the chances of tribe/ blung interaction.

Blung hordes are not always friendly with each other and may prey on one another.

--------------------

Dream rot by itself is harmless, but as it grows in concentration it attracts more and more cedya. They are not so harmless, and will eventually cause the Gesh Dreamers who are the progenitors of the rot, to flee to a new region less they be slaughtered one and all. Once they are gone, the rot dies down, and the cedya disperse. As the Dreamers stay in one location, the rot builds up again.

I might as well post my tribe.
Though it will be seen how active I will be able to be this time around.

The Lufae are a tribe of geists that live in the hills of the area R 17, that slope downwards to the plains from the mountains.

Living right next to the plains has shaped their psyche somewhat. The Great Empty and the Endless Void are always present in their lives. They believe that one day, the world song that keeps the void at bay will end, and the great empty will engulf the world.
Their tribal symbol is a depiction of the Lufae people standing in watch as the world is consumed by the void.

They live in large communal burrows that are dug in to the ground, and reinforced with mud and chompa bones and shells. The strong brute males are excellent diggers, and the tribe has already developed primitive tools that help them dig their tunnels even better.
All the tribe members live in the same burrow. During days, they gather there and rest in one great pile in where the pheromones of their slime can easily transfer across the whole tribe.

They wear garments, necklaces, and bracelets that are all full of pieces of wood, fangs, hollowed out seeds and beans and other things that cause noise. These "sound clothes" are used by the tribe to augment their own personal song, which is important for their sense of self. The geists are never truly silent. Their basic sonar humming is augmented with more elaborate noises and songs, which make up the language of the geists. The communal song of the Lufae people is sung by the whole tribe, but the most important singers are placed in the communal chamber, from which the song resonates in radius of many kilometers. This song connects all the Lufae together.

The Log'ead tribe known as the Tra live in northeast corner of the eastern Siwari plain. They, giving them access to the forests, the Lacorra Badlands, the siwari plain and, if they want visions, the Dream Forests. In my previous post, I stated they'd specifaclly be in the area of O 20

The Tra are a tribe that values strength, and sees their spikes, or Mulpacs, as physical embodiements of Strength and Honor. Elder Log'Eadz posses mulpacs so long they cannot be sheathed, so amongst the tribe, having ones weapons at the ready means one is "wise"

The Tra use animal horns for spear and javelin heads, which are their main weapons. They will barrage prey with javelins, herding prey towards warriors armed with heavy spears.

Homes are made up of tents made from stretched runna skins ( or do they just have bony exoskeletons?).

The tribe is lead by a pair of chieftans, who have beaten, literally, all other challengers for his position. If they remain strong, he will lead the tribe till he dies in the hunt. Their names are Eno and Dlo, and Eno is the father of two young warriors, Krom and Krog,

The tribe wears simple garments, made from the hide of animals, and wears braclets of animal sinew, decorated with bits of bone, or, in the case of warrior males, the Mulpacs of their defeated foes.

The plains are a terrifying place for the geists. In the wast open areas, their echolocation doesn't work as well as it could. The geists navigate by tracing objects with distinct echoes, such as trees, large boulders, hills and mountains. In the plains, these things are so few and far between that the geists have hard time figuring out where they are.
Imagine that you are in a dark space of undefined size. Only relatively small space around you is lit up, and this area moves with you. Sometimes objects enter this zone of light, but beyond them, you can't see anything else.
That is what it is like for a geist in the middle of the plains. Their sonar's range is simply too limited to reliably navigate in the was open plains.

Because of their fear of the plains, the wyvern geists have grown into important figures in the Lufae belief system. Their sonar screams "light up" the void of the plains, allowing those who hear it to find their way back home. They are thought to be opposing forces to the all consuming Endless Void, they are almost angelic figures to the Lufae. The wyverns are the singers of the world song in the Lufae mythology. They are said to be the servants of the main deity of the Lufae religion.
The Lufae often leave offerings and tributes to the wyverns atop of high hills and such. Sometimes old members of the tribe offer themselves to the wyverns, in hopes that the magnificent beings would carry their souls to the choir of the ancients.

The Lufae main deity is called Lupia. In the songs praising her, she is depicted as the creator of the world and the protector of the geist people. She sung out the world from the void and banished the great empty to only loom over it. In the tales she often appears to be a tall female geist with wyvern wings and tail.

The current status of the following families:

>Earthshaking Grub
The whole clan is made up of male members and grubs. This family forsters invention and celebrates birth. Families lines are recorded through the mother, so unless some grubs developed into girls, this family will not survive another generation. This has lead them to try to mark the tribes history with their radical thinking and new inventions.

Solith
A Dream Shaman. Like his other Earthshaking cousins, he was once an curious grazer. He studied at the edge of the dreamforest until he decided becoming a Shaman was the only way to learn more. To others, he is the less scary but more foolish shaman. He thinks out loud constantly.

Hulys
The only Earthshaking Grub Steward. He is sometimes concerned about his clan's influence in the tribe and how it will be remembered in the future. He tends to favor experimentation with new things and ideas.

>Inviting Bark
This family is known for their clam hearts and their contrary profession choice. They have a history of negotiating conflicts between families. They have more female than male hunters which serve as a scouting party during the Time of Leaves. The were also blessed with a strong hyper-male, that chose to be a grazer.

Aelah
An alternative to Firil, she can gather the support of stewards of other families easily. She believes that her family holds the right idea of cooperation that will keep the tribe from failing.

They are also known for their many female grazers. They take the funeral responsibilities for the rest of the tribe. After a hunter dies, their grazers are seen collecting decorative plants for their burial.

Duari
Was once a great hunter until he become lost in the dreamforest. The gesh rot took away his ability to defend the tribe in the waking world. To the rest of the tribe he is mad and crazy. He is a scary dude with sunken eyes and a wiry white mane. Becoming a Dream Shaman, he believes he can defend the tribe in the Dreaming.

Sehquetas
The eldest Elen of the Iminye tribe. She is ancient looking compared to everyone else. To the rest of the tribe, she is the only real authority because she has the most experience. She is determined to lead the Iminye even if she has to sacrifice some along the way. Was once the mate to a hunter who died and visits his grave every Time of Grass.

>Fiery Messenger
They are brash leaders who have the most Stewards and Hunters. They believe they can lead the tribe into the future. Their hunters hold rivalries with other families for sport during the Wild Hunt.

Firil
A prideful Steward who believes he can lead the tribe. He uses his influence to push for exploration and hunting. To others he is a maverick that can capitalize on opportunity. He looks forward to the annual Return Feast and personally hunts the trophy the tribe eats.

Good point. Perhaps the storms are seen as Lupia singing so her children could walk in the void?

Regarding the choir of the ancients, the Lufae believe that the worthiest of Lupia's followers will be placed in the choir, to sing the world song with the wyverns. Some even say that eventually, the ancients will become wyverns themselves. Because of this, the wyverns are always treated with utmost respect.
The Lufae word for the wyverns is Ethalnu, which means "Respected elder."

The Lufae are suspicious of the other races. Their ability to "see world without song" (actually seeing, instead of echolocation) scares the Lufae. Geists always know when other geist is "looking" at them, but creatures with sight can gaze upon the geists without the geists noticing, and that scares the lufae people.
They call other races "Ilufens" which means "songless". The Lufae try to almost instinctively stay out of the sight of other races. They lurk in the shadows, observe, listen and hide.
To some of the smart males of the Lufae tribe, the songless are subjects of morbid curiosity, they seek to find ways how to move even more sneakily and how to avert or disable the gazes of the seeing ones.

Their egg (Runu, as they call them) pool is a re-purposed natural pond under a Lub. The Ruufaya live their lives around the pool; they were all born from it, they constantly feed it and when they die, they are fed to it. The Ruufaya repeatedly swap their old, tired Runu with fresh, well-fed Runu from the pool; individual Puruu are made through the incubation process of taking a group of Runu into the "womb" in their heads.

The Ruufaya have no religion as such, instead they tell stories of Papuruu, an ancient Puruu who was perfect in every way; whether Papuruu really existed is left to individual opinion. Some believe Papuruu was the first formed Puruu and he invented the first Runu pool, though the general consensus is Papuruu was the strongest, smartest, fastest, wittiest Puruu there's ever been and all Puruu should strive to be like him.

Here is a base blung horde chart.
The hordes will begin to move eventually, but for now, they are mostly located in their own territories.

The numbers indicate what particular blung breeds exist in each horde. Over time, the hordes might grow even more different from each other, but for now, this is what they are made of.

Firstly, the name of the tribal hoppa species isn't Nad'lun, that is the name of just that particular tribe. The tribal hoppas are named Alun.

Secondly, the geists are also excellent climbers. They have gecko like paws that allow them to climb on almost any surface. That trait was developed way back in the cave threads.

Going to claim P15 for the Puruu tribe of the Urupuruu, who live on the great river Arupa, on the stretch below Uru ul Prapau, which means "The Great Water of Standing Still" in their tongue. To the east is Gru la Ularu, which is" The Great Crack in the Ground", and beyond that is the Trackless Sea of No Water, or Gral La Uru Pu La.

The Urupuruu worship the river Arupa, which they believe to have once been a very tall and fat Puruu, who one day walked to the top of the Big Rock (Ul Url) which is the Mountain, and fell over on it's side, killing poor Arupa and leaving the river behind. Gra la Ularu is also a sacred place to the Urupuruu peoples, for they believe that the world is flat, and that Gra la Ularu is actually a big hole in the world that falls out into the sky.

Their Runu is a small spring fed pond next to the river.

The Lufae tribe is led by the alpha male. He is the absolute ruler of the tribe, in theory at least.
In practice, he mainly directs the tribe in matters that interest him, and he keeps the other brute males focused on either trying to gain his favor or competing against him.
In the background, the females rule the society. They subtly influence the whims of the alpha, as well as plan and do things on their own volition in order to further their interests.
The smart males collaborate and aid the females in their plans, and get to breed in exchange.

The alpha and the brutes aren't by no means dumb, or unneeded. No, they simply don't tend to make as elaborate plans, or think ahead for greater length of time. They approach problems in direct and brutally efficient manner, and without them, the more feeble females and smart males would have much harder time to survive. The brutes are strong and resilient. They dig the tunnels of the tribe, defend it an drag the large kills of the females back to the nest of the tribe.

The males are a minority in the geist society. About 60-70% of the geists are females. This means that the females do the bulk of the labor of the tribe. They are the hunters, warriors, artisans, caretakers gatherers etc. of the tribe. The males are far more specialized. The brutes do the heavy lifting while the smart males occupy duties that require the cunning of the females, and the individual tendencies of the males, duties like scouting. The males can tolerate loneliness far better than the females, and thus scouting is the natural niche the smart males gravitate towards.

The Lufae tribe has lived in the edge of the Endless Void for generations. Like their ancestors, they stand on watch over the plains as the ever vigilant servants of Lupia, they do their part in ensuring that the world song plays on and keeps the Great Empty from devouring the world.

For many years, the tribe has been led by an old and wise alpha called Thun. He has managed to keep the internal balance of the tribe stable, by giving every member of the tribe a task to do. The brute males defend the burrows and expand them, the smart males scout and help out the females, and the females do the other tasks. He has even been quite lax about other males breeding with the females, as long as they still fulfilled their duties and didn't directly oppose him.
But as his strength has started to fade, the pheromonal influence he has had over the other males has started to fade. This has been noticed by a young and ambitious brute male named Khuna. He has gathered a small band of other brutes around himself and they have a plan to oust the current alpha.
The first step in their plan is to knock down the food supply of the tribe, for a while at least. They are planning to follow the females who are on the hunt, and then ruin their attempts to get prey by scaring it away before the females can prepare their attack.

As the females leave for a hunting trip, 4 brutes follow them, claiming to be there in order to guard the females. The females are somewhat suspicious, but they can't really stop the brutes from following them.

Meanwhile, the shaman of the tribe, named Iliath, prepares a tribute for the wyverns, in hopes that they would continue to favor her people. She has collected an offering of dead blade shwirms and two blung hounds atop a large hill. She begins to sing the song of Lupia so the wyverns would know that their cousins wished to honor them.

The tribe has also sent out 3 scout squads composed of 2 smart males each to search for new hunting grounds. One of the groups will follow the river passing near the tribe upwards, while the other downwards. The last group is tasked to explore the edge of the plains northwards.

Sehquestas ran out her tent, dropped to the hard ground and rolled herself shaking and crushing the insects beneath her. Until she stops moving entirely. The tribe rushes to flick the Schwars off her using their hands and brushes of prairie grass.

A group of five heads back down into the valley, and it appears that the Shambler has moved on. While collecting fruit, one of the gatherers steps on what feels like a thick tree root. She freezes instantly. There aren't any large trees around this patch. The foliage blocked their sonar from picking the beast up. Once it begins to move, she drops her fruit and books it out of there. Unfortunately, the large Ravenous Shamblers are fast creatures, and doesn't take long to gain on her. The others hear her cries for help and immediately go to her aid. They pick up rocks from the ground and pile onto it, but the Shambler is strong, and it manages to whip some of the Geists off.
After beating it down with the stones long enough, it eventually releases its prey and slinks off back into the grove. All five of them come back with minor injuries except for the one who was caught first. She's badly cut up, bruises, and her legs and tail may be broken.

A few of the women folk (and the children to young to fight or hunt) begin to craft clothes from hides that were tanned earlier, to welcome the hunters when they return from the badlands

One question, did you mean hives?

Yapap
Before the challenger could get back up, the elder firmly pinned him down underfoot. "I've won. You know this, Kwaku," he said, spear tip held just above the challenger's face.
The elder released Kwaku from the ground and looks up to all of those gazing down on the two combatants from the canopy. "By rite of battle, I, Ytai, am still leader of the Yapap." After his address to the tribe, Elder Ytai climbed back up into to the tree canopy to retrieve an egg for patching up his wounds.
Ytai and Kwaku are the two eldest, and most respected members of the tribe, as well as its founders. Every other puruu (or lifou [Lih-foo] as they call their kind) in the tribe is descended from one of them. They founded this new tribe in their youth with the beliefs of their old one, which fell to famine many year ago. The two have had disputes on how things should be done many times over the years, and leadership has been passed between them in numerous occasions.

Not long after the fight finished, a scouting party of two who went out up the river three days ago returned.

While the gatherer's legs were not broken, she is still unable to walk. A deep cut from the Shambler's teeth cut a tendon in her right leg. The recovery will be long and painful, but it does look like she will live. Despite recovery, she will have a limp for the rest of her life.
Defiling the whistling grass must have upset the spirits, and this ailment is undoubtedly punishment. The shaman tries to commune with the wind spirits, asking them to forgive her for this foolishness.
With the Shambler still in the valley, and food in low supply, the tribe has two choices: search for food further down the valley (closer to the lake), or rid themselves of the beast immediately.

Rolling for recovery from hives, deciding between slaying the Shambler (even) or searching elsewhere (odd), and success of chosen action. (please involve spirits in the derision)

Raga are capture in small amounts, those that drift low enough. The sticky stick is...more muddy then sticky and needs refinement, perhaps their own mucus in greater quantities may do the trick.

The females return to the nest hill empty handed. Sun is beginning to rise, and they can already feel it's burning rays on their backs, they try to catch few burro scwars on their way back, to somewhat amend their failure.
Khuna begins to plan another way to sabotage the current regime. He knows that some of the runty smart males are cutting out deals with the females in exchange for mating. The current alpha tolerates it, but only if the males also perform their duties. Khuna begins to plan how to sabotage the works of few of the tool maker males, who are responsible for carving simple records and making the sound garments. If they fail to do their duties, the alpha has to punish them, or ignore it, both options would make him look weak ruler (in Khuna's mind at least.)

The first scout team tries to locate themselves. They try to track the flow of the river back to their tribe. In case they would get lost again, in stroke of genius, one of them begins to hang noise bracelets on plants, so they could at least find their way back to the place they started from.

The blungs are edible, though the Lufae do prefer the taste of the blade shwirms. The elder of the team is also slightly concerned. The blung sightings have grown more abundant from downriver lately. That means that there is either a new nest of them nearby, or a big nest is about to burst. Both options aren't really good for the Lufae. The blungs drive away other, more favored prey, and are a potential threat to the tribe itself.
He decides that the matter must be investigated further. The scouts continue their trek downstream, in their search for a potential blung field.

The final scout team heads back home. The void of the plains making them uneasy. One of them observes a small pack of geist wolfs venturing back from the void. He wonders how these beasts can enter the void and not get lost.

The creatures have grown placid and abundant from a lack of predation. Khuna and his troop are "coerced" into helping carry back the massive load of scwars despite initial protests. It would seem he is still easily manipulated by the female population. The shaman bangs on the dead tree in steady rythm, for an evening, and on into the morning. The spirits must be appeased. The sun burns the geist's sensative skin, but in trance the shaman drums on, into the evening, finally, the call of the ancestors is sounded and the shaman stops. A giant Wyvern Geist slowly spirals overhead, it is a familiar one.

The scouts that were lost, make their way back home after having to find shelter under a cliff face for the day, a little hungry and lonely but otherwise fine. The next scout team discovers many details about the blung, down to species and the number present. This horde is full of stronger, larger blungs, but few small fast ones.

As the females gather the scwars in great numbers, one of them gets the idea of bringing few ones alive to their nest. Perhaps these things could live closer to their home, and thus be a steady source of food?

Khuna has lost some of his followers due to the fact how easily he himself was swayed by the females. In order to regain his status among his peers, he tries to execute his plan to sabotage the male artisan's work alone.

Iliath makes the proper greetings to the revered wyvern. This one has soared the skies above her home as long as she can remember. "Oh, great elder! We humbly offer you this gift! May your song ward away the void evermore, and may your wings still carry you to the empty! I hail you, Singer of the World Song! Take our gift, and see that we are still loyal servants of the All Mother!"
As she finishes the greeting song, she quickly steps away from the tribute, to wait for the wyvern's response.

The scouts continue to track their way back home. They continue to mark their way with the noise bracelets, even making new ones when the no longer have more of them. They are now convinced that this idea could be of use for their people.

The scouts investigating the blungs decide that they have seen enough. They know that attacking the horde just by themselves would be madness, and the elder is quite sure that the blungs are getting ready to move out anyways. The scouts decide to leave before the horde starts to head their way.

The scouts continue their observation of the wolf geists. One of them gets the idea of trying to attract one of them by trying to imitate their sounds and using few of the rations they have with them.

Their heated debate causes a schism within the small tribe.

The distractions caused by the scwars drives the tribe to disarray and chaos. Thun, the current alpha of the tribe orders the scwars to be captured as fast as possible. The females meekly obey. As they gather up the scwars, they seek try to plant them on a other nearby hill, few hundred meters from their communal chamber.

Unfortunately for Khuna, the destroyed braile table was the claimed to be caused by the scwars and the artisan who made it got away without blame. Thun's quick handling of the situation didn't really harm his reputation either.
Khuna had to come up with new plans to his coup, but for now, he too is forced to gather up the scwars.

Iliath gets few other tribe members to help her build up a shrine for the wyverns so the tribe could regularly place their offerings there.

When the scouts return, they attempt to refine their noise bracelet based trail marking into a proper navigational aid.

The Shamans allow the fight. After Kroms lost, it had been suspected that the Krom brothers were too weak to become Malucals. This honorable duel would test the younger brother. Krog wins the duel decisively. Neither pair of brothers is whole. But they both have equal honor.

Krom does not escape unnoticed but is caught by Pluk's uncle the Shaman. He kneels deferentially. The Shaman questions his secrecy, suspecting dishonorable violence against his nephew.

The youth jumps on the Kurunna's back only to be bucked off. The creature cries and screams fighting against its tie. The youth is scolded by his family. The Inviting Bark sisters calm the beast down. But not before it is answered by a sympathetic bellow in the distance.

The tall grass sways in the darkness, and bursting comes the Kurunna momma. The momma wrecks the tanning rack where the Schwars were being prepared dropping the meat to the dirty ground. It charges at where its young has been caroled.

In its way was the most distracted mind in the entire tribe. The Dream Shaman, Solith. He was walking talking to himself about the strange lights in the sky and generally lost in thought. He wondered if they had different names, as the ground beneath him rumbled.

Alright Nad here we go. Feel free to have nongent have another take on this.

The schwars were replanted in the hill away from the communal chamber. However the Schwars rejected the hill and returned to the tribe. They dug in and around the communal chamber and were again a nuisance.

Unfortunately the tribe did not have enough materials for a proper shrine. The few volunteers were soon distracted and began other work.

The scouts start experimenting with their noise bracelets. While they couldn't make the sound travel further, they make excellent poles to hang them on. They decorate the poles with their Braille cravings.

The crafters attempts at making weapons ended terribly. A female crafter tried making a swing to throw small rocks. The swish of the sling attracts the interest of a brute male. She accidently lets the sling go and a rock hits the brute in its face. The brute rages and breaks all the new weapons.

The wolves grow accustomed to Lufae commands, but only follow simple understandable instructions, such as "come" or "go."

the scwars are not easily gathered, and continue to infest the tunnels, likely for a long time. This casts doubt onto the brutes who could not do such a simple job, but also will be readily available, if not somewhat annoying, food. The shrine is only a foundation right now, crude and simple. The noise devices stay mostly the same, but understanding of them progresses. Testing the new weapons leads to a female getting killed, due to its erratic nature ((boomerang, this covers both weapon rolls)). the wolf geists are a bit wild, and the scouts drag them back to their nests by carrying them, the wolves snapping and howling all the way. They seem to be restless inside the small tunnels, confined, as a positive they hunt the scwars relentlessly.

Head elder Ytai is not too concerned about the other tribe up the river for the time being.
The stones that a tribe member strikes against one another in the process of making new knives produce a lot of sparks. Occasionally one lands on a small patch of undergrowth.

It was a hard battle, but the Shambler was slain, and its body was drug back up to the village. With it gone, the gathering parties were free to go back to the grove and gather up bushels of fruit. That night and the day after, the tribe celebrated the slaying of the grove-lurker with song, dance, feast, and other merrymaking.
It would take a long, miserable week, but the gatherer who ground up the grass did recover from her ailment. The shaman said to her that the spirits were forgiving, but wanted to make sure that she, nor anyone else would desecrate the whistling-grass in such a way again.
The shaman climbs up to the top of the valley, closer to the Great Empty. She gave thanks to them on behalf of the tribe for allowing them to fell the Shambler from the grove, and also to ask for their guidance for the future.

Third roll: Guidance from the wind spirits.

The alpha of the tribe orders new tunnels to be dug, so the scwars could inhabit them, instead of messing around in the communal chamber. All the brutes are put to work, and thus Khuna can't properly scheme around right now.

Iliath is interested in the noise poles the scouts made. She requests that they would be planted around the shrine. She also ads some noise bracelets to them, so that the wyverns would spot them easier.

The scouts are sent to plant these poles around the tribes territory, for easier navigation. The edge of the void is especially seen as an important area to chart with the poles.

The artisans ad some bean chains to the few remaining intact weapons, so that the arch of the weapon could be tracked better from the sounds the beans make.

The scouts further continue to train the wolf geists, some of them are however thinking that the adult ones are too stubborn. They go out to try to capture/lure some of the younger wolf geists to their fold, in hopes that the young ones are more receptive to training.

Tunnel building seems to be going normally, although a bit hindered by the schwars running around and messing with rubble.
It seems like the shrine is better, since more wyverns are seen above it. Not a lot, but increased nonetheless.
The scouts plant the poles at the edge with little hassle... lo and behold, they can now see more landscape.
One of the artisans had a loud idea: instead of attaching cumbersome bean chains, he made grooves and holes along the returning stick's sides. His design proved to be musical; as the returning stick is thrown, it hums with sound, lighting the path it traveled. And since it is now visible to the Geists, it can be caught more easily.
The captured wolfgeists get more receptive once the geists fed them regularly, but since they're protective of their young (as one geist proved, with bite marks), no young wolfgeists can be trained yet.

As the tunnels get finished, the tribe begins to drive the scwars into them, so that the tribe could have their peace in their main chamber.
Khuna sneaks away, as he has a plan. He secretly tries to dig tunnels that would lead the scwars away from the tunnels that were built for them. He thinks that it could cause more distress and resentment towards the current alpha. (As you might have realized now, Khuna isn't actually very smart in his plans.)

Iliath and some of her apprentices continue to work on the shrine. One of the apprentices attempts to carve holes in the poles, that would cause similar howls in the wind as he had heard coming from holes and cracks in trees. He thinks that if the holes were made well enough, the sound would please the wyverns.
Iliath herself tries to sing to the wyverns, in hopes that they could share their wisdom with her people.

The new weapons are taken for a test run downstream. The scouts want to see if they are effective against the blungs. They will try to locate small cluster of flying blungs, and avoid attracting the attention of the main horde.

The wolf geist trainers try to modify the throwing weapons into harmless tools. They think they could use them to train the wolf geists better with them.

The scwar scatter, but not into the tunnels entirely, they just spread out into the new spaces, while still infesting the rest of the caverns. Khuna only manages to scatter them further. The wind flutes are very, very crude, more like obnoxious wind kazoos, if anything these will drive the wyverns away, but it is a start. (rule of failures here.) Lliath manages to hit one note, just one, that gets their attention and causes them to come closer for a moment. They seem to be curious. The new weapons are "loud", and when thrown all at once disoriented the geist scouts, even causing headaches. One lone overblung was killed in the assault however, if only by chance.

Some of the females try a different approach on gathering up the scwars. They place lures of food in the tunnels, in hopes that the scwars would congregate there.
Khuna is frustrated with his chain of failures, and in his anger, he howls at the useless scwars scrambling around the haphazard walls of the tunnel he had built.

The flutes are taken away from the shrine so that they wouldn't bother the wyverns. The apprentice requests help from the artisans in refining the flutes.
Iliath gathers the remaining apprentices and starts to sing new songs with them on the fly based on the tune that seemed to attract the wyverns. She is in almost trance like state, exited for the possibility the mighty wyverns might sing to her.

The scouts return with their kill, and inform the artisans of the minor flaw in the weapons. The artisans set to work on redesigning the grooves and holes in a way that the sounds they cause resonate more pleasantly with the sonar of the geists themselves.

The wolf geist trainers decide to tag along with the female hunters, in hopes of seeing if the wolves could be of use for the hunters. The females move downriver, and then depart near to the edge of the void, in hopes of spotting bladeshwirm or runna herd that had ventured towards the river for drink.

After much effort, it seems food works. Give up food to gain food. The schwar are mostly contained. There will always be a loose one or two, but nothing to the degree of the chaos that was the last few days. Khuna's howl while loud, does very little save leave him with a very sore throat and only able to produce a quiet rasp for a voice. Then he looks around his feet. The closest schwar to him are convulsing and twitching, stunned by his throat injuring howl. In victory he picks up one and takes a big bite. The Artisans are busy working on the throwing blades, and get confused with the flutes. Neither project proceeds very far, but much about acoustics is learned. The Wyverns seem pleased with the new song, and more slowly circle the shrine. A small but brave one lands to eat from the offering pile. (getting + modifiers for past experiences/ race/ etc.).

The pragmatic adult sees a meal, but the children beg compassion from their father (well, he's one of the children's father). Normally they would be scolded for such a suggestion but earlier that weak the hunters had returned with lots of Redaresh meat.

"Alright, wûwochka*, but it shall be your responsibility to care for these creatures. All of you."
The now-dead parent creature is eaten by the family but the eggs are placed in warmers at the insistence of the mothers (not exactly what the father had in mind, but he doesn't know or doesn't mind). Working together is a tried and true tactic for survival in the mountains, meaning that cooperation will likely become not just a trait, but a cultural value of these Stone-Age people.

*[wə-'wōch-kah] or wuh-Wōch-kah
The ō is a long O as in "owner" or "boat", and the apostrophe in the first transcription and the capitalized letter in the second indicates that it is the second syllable that is stressed.

The trainers see that it is in their best interest to obey the females, if they wished to be on their good side after they returned from the hunting trip. The two groups part ways, the females go back to the edge of the river to lurk for prey, and the males head out towards the area at the edge of the void, which was now "illuminated" by the recently planted chimes.
One of them gets the idea of trying to get the wolfs to hunt prey from the void, as he had witnessed them do earlier.

Solith in his wanderings heard the strange voice not of his kin. He looked to the edge of the forest and realized the Dreaming must be calling him. He begged the voice but a second and called for the other shaman, Duari.

Duari was an intimidating presence before he was lost in the dreamforest. True, he had been a strong proud hyper-male of the Grim family. But after his return, he became a terrifying silent presence, the embodiment of the Grim being.

He walked silently to Solith. "Duari, I walk the Dreaming tonight. Please protect me." Duari answered by nodding his head. He understood that the gesh dust took away his fighting ability in this world, but the Dreaming was his territory now.

The two Shamans respectively approach the voice. Solith was especially excited about learning what secrets he could.

For the rest of the Tribe, morning came. The Grazers herded the dazed Momma with her pup in tow into the prairie besides the Iminye camp. Having food and being together calmed both beasts.

The Stewards were interested in gathering more of these beasts. They could focus the entire seasons efforts into making a herd of these beasts for themselves. They proposed many hunters and scouts explore the plains, which pleased Firil quite a bit. It was also proposed to create a pen for these creatures from Hexis lumber. To do so they needed better tools...

Each party is sent with a Inviting Bark sister that successfully brought back the baby Kirunna. While the Earthshaking Grubs knock their head together coming up with a better wood cutting tool.

The Upright Bladeshwirm, or Shwirm as I call them for short, lay eggs and mate with a single partner. They are *not* social insects like ants or bees. The only ant-like sapients I can think of (off the top of my head) are the Glud in the West and then the Pusmal in the South.

The Shwirm reproduce like humans, minus the live birth of course. Sexual reproduction with one partner, the pair has few (1-2) children at a time and raise them to maturity. The eggs have to be kept warm either by sitting on them or some other method, if available or seen as necessary.

Though I suppose this brings up an interesting question regarding individual lifespan and the age at which a Shwirm becomes sexually mature, all those details... if you like we can collaborate here or on the IRC link given above on these things.

There's a feeling of power that comes with being able to create and control one of the most well known, and ferocious forces of nature at will.
With only a meager number of supplies retrieved, Head elder Ytai had another group sent up river to go ask if they could spare some food and other miscellaneous supplies. Perhaps their language wouldn't be so different from their own, living so close.

Khuna's sore throat is sooed with ice cold water and some heribal plants. With pratice he can howl without hurting his throat.

With a brillent break through they make an instrumental flute made out of bones and wood that gives it many different pitches and tones.

They make a whitsle boomerang with a sharpen edge that returns after it hits.

The wyvern finishes its meal and directs its song at Lliath as she approaches. It calls down another of its kind. The two wyverns sing at Lliath testing her.

While lurking at the river's edge, the females find the tracks of the a Deer Strida. Whereas the party with the wolf geists, don't find many tracks at all.

The females bring the roots to the scwars, and the one who attempted to scan the ground for roots started using her song to spot any potential tunnels that the scwars had built, to see if they had started compromising the integrity of the tunnels.

As the scwar problem started to get under control and the tribe started to gather to the communal chamber for rest, Khuna approached the center of the chamber, few of his remaining allies carrying living scwars with them. As the tribe and even the alpha followed his moves with amusement/confusion, he ordered the scwars to be placed in front of him, and as it was done, he howled at them, hoping to cause the same effect that happened before, and to impress the tribe.

Some of the flutes are assembled to the chime poles, so that wind would blow trough them and cause them to make sounds themselves.
The warriors begin training with the new weapons.

Iliath starts to sing with the wyverns, trying to imitate and emulate their song, hoping that it would please the great beings.

The explorers travel North-East into the Lub Forest. They climb and name many of them making a mental map of the area.

When they travel, they see something. They catch it and it turns out to be a strange purple flyer. The wind that carried it smelled rotten.They reach the other side of the Forest to find where the river empties out to the ocean.

One adventurous Puruu walks into the rolling tides. The water irritates his limbs making them cramp up. He can't compensate and is soon swept out into the ocean. Before the rest realize what has happened, the brave fool has gone under the murky water. They fish him out and bring him back into the river.

The grazing prairie critters you refer to might be the descendants of the Runna, or Runniformes as I call them in a fake taxonomical-sounding name. The Paresh-descendents (which I suppose you could use Paresh to mean) live in the mountainous regions... for the most part. I suppose it wouldn't be too unbelievable to see them on the plains or even nearby forests, but their main habitat is the alpine regions.

The Runnas all live in the plains save the Frenna, which also sometimes ventures into the forest. Note also: the Tiranna, when frightened, turns bright red as it's blood pumps faster in response to increased heart rate, allowing it a burst of energy in times of danger.

-you have options: you can do an honor duel, you can do all out war, you can attempt diplomacy. the outcomes of all of them vary in severity and depend on what you want, which i would recommend putting with your rolls. (outcomes: diplomance, kill entire npc tribe, kill leader/ defeat leader - absorb tribe and gain everything they have including the population/ trade and gain their "tech" at a cost. all of these lead towards the initial goal you set.)

((About the Kah: many generations ago a chief's son killed his father, stabbed him right thru the head with his mupac. go figure. they dont value their mulpac like your tribe does, as a lost mulpac can be replaced with an even more potent sul'pak. They have strong attachments to the concept of eventual death, killing, and the sun. They are more barbaric then your tribe. Strength is respected above innovation. You take what you kill. They will eat the dead after a fight. They will collect the bones. Do not take this as evil though.)) The kah number at 25.

Some of the meat was starting to rot when they got to eastern tribe but it didn't stop them from eating it. Now that Staatgreich has its streigth back they can start working. Good path must be found and cleared to make travelling between villages more easy because from now on the eastern village is dependent of western villages meat.

Clubs are...sort of broken off tree branches, but its about as primitive and blunt as you can get. The entanglement device is actually two sticks tied together with a lot of loose string tied between the two. when it makes contact with another object, the weak bindings break open and the string spills all over the creature. at first mobility is not too restricted as the string is loose, but it rapidly will cause tripping and falling over. the path is long and dangerous, filled with wild beasts who are more agressive then the usual food stuff, it is not easy to clear and you are attacked by jungle geist along the way. ((See the green dude in a previous post)). I also redrew your tribe symbol to make it more primitive, as the game goes on, feel free to update it.

The haze grew thicker, and breathing slightly harder. "you.almost see, now. look at my face. closely." And they did. the Dreamer sighed a long breath into their faces. It sent them into visions, of joy, of endless mist, of knowledge so large they could not hold onto it. They wept and laughed.

The unskilled methods were unfortunate and inefficient. The grazers and hunters were taught to treat better methods to lure and lasso. There wasn't much to be done so the tribe moved on.

The growing herd was seen as a sign. Just a few days ago they had nothing. If they harvested the Kirunna now, they could clothe many and eat for a few days.

Firil was the first proponent of the growing herd. He needed the efforts of the whole tribe to gather the creatures and build a pen for them. He directed the Earthshaking Grubs to design and build the pen. It would be fenced and wrapped in Hexis Vines with their barbs intact.

As long as it was the Time of Grass, the tribe could be persuaded to continue. But the Time of Leaves would return, and the tribe would move back to the forest. Firil started spreading the idea gathering lots of Kirunna.

The two Shamans returned to the tribe. Solith tells the tribe of the voice of the Forest. That the Forest needed protectors and it would reward them with great secrets if they took the duty.

Slowly the Time of Leaves dawned on the tribe...

The lessons were largely ignored by the hunters and grazers. Despite that the tribe became more skilled at the old techniques. They lassoed over the beasts horns and jumped on its back. The beasts bucked while the youngster rode holding onto the rope. Using this method many young hunters were injured, but many more Kirunna were gathered.

The pen the Earthshakers made was small and only held ten Kirunna at a time. The barbs turned the cattle away, but wouldn't stop a stampede of them. Extra cattle was slaughtered away from the pen, the tribe eat well this year.

When the time came, Firil went to the elder Sehquetas. She was sitting in front of the fire holding her walking cane. Holding horns harvested from the Kirunna cattle Firil said, "Look at the bounty that awaits us in the Prairie. If we stay an extra season, we could gather many of these beasts, build a bigger pen, and prosper for many generations!"

Hulys who was standing close by said, "It's true, we might live well for a few years, but what about Solith's Dream? We were promised secrets and Knowledge if we returned and defended the Forest from outsiders." Solith, in a stupor, just nodded his head as if he understood.

"Firil," Aelah, the Inviting Bark Steward said, "You forget why we return to the Forest. We may gather many beasts, but our own numbers will not grow. Don't you look forward to the Returning Feast? Some of us prefer the safety of the trees"

To these questions Firil said, "We can make new traditions, and make a secure new living here."

Just days after first coming to the other tribe requesting supplies, travelers from the Yapap arrive again and ask to be shown the direction to the egg pools. Once arriving there, they regurgitate embryonic puruus into the water, which members of this tribe quickly swallow so that they can finish developing. As with the agreement, the Yapap traders return to their home with supplies of wood, food, and skins. Before they left, they asked if the tribe knew at all of what lies further up the river.

Days have gotten longer for the Yapap ever since the discovery of fire. It lights up the darkness and produces heat for unusually cold nights. Also helps keep the larger beasts away from their home. The feed the flames with fallen Hexises and Tree Siwaris. It would not be hard to figure out that resins dripping from some of the logs burned well.

The other tribe is vague, but tells the travelers that there is a body of water to the south.

The Yapap test several resins and found some that burned well. However one Puruu accidentally knocked over a jar full of the gathered resin. The resin falls and ruins cooking preparations.

The explorers travel up the river, when suddenly a floating raga plant falls from the sky. One of the Puruu is knocked back into the rapids of the river. His mates try to catch him, but can't. Before long he is lost to the river.

After resurfacing down the river pass the rapids. The lone Puruu tries to get his bearings. He decides to start upstream, until he sees something alien and terrible.

The tribe now can fish well into the brief autumn, those scant 2 months or so when their land is not freezing cold. During the winter they walk out onto the ice, traditional ice fishing. In the autumn they row out upon the ice canoes. It never gets warm enough that they melt, but they do break up. The process is so easy and simple that a fisherman can spend all day out, with a relative rowing out upon an ice flow of their own to bring him meals.

Fishing is a boring business, a line with a hook, (no rod or reel) waiting for a bite so you can haul it in. Most fisherman find a hobby, or something else to pass the time... you know, something constructive. Of course, there's an old joke that "fishermen's sons are born out on the ice".

The Puruu who caused a small fire by spilling the collected resin got smacked around a bit by the other who had wanted to try something with it. They'd have to collect some more. The area of the fire was cleared out, ash and burnt-out coals were swept out of the fire pit so that it wouldn't be piling up.

They do not tend to waste much, considering they came from the desert lands and have been on a long trek. the ancient story of the leader killing his father may date back before the continent splitting earthquake.

- Geist wolves make for loyal, if somewhat dangerous pack members. ((might have eaten a kid or two. bad dog)) It is understood that the Geist wolves sing in a different way, at the ground mostly, the vibrations go out and come back to them. Ground penetrating sonar/ a good memory of where they have been/ a keen sense of vibrations and what they tell. They also have a very developed sense of "smell" they loll their tongues out in the air as they walk or run, tasting their environment.
-Wyverns become more sociable with the shaman caste of the tribe, and the two develop a repitoir of singing back and fourth, even allowing the shamans to groom them. The Shaman leader has had a few children that are being taught to be shamans also.
- Technology and culture: music grows more complex, chimes and bells become easy to make for the tribe, along with associated products. Each geist will craft their own cylindrical chime/ bell that is unique to them. Artisan caste starts to craft masks/ muzzles to change how the "song" works/ sounds.
-The existing alpha continues to grow older, and more placid. Khuna while the most dominant of the brute caste has been very busy developing his screams and howls with the other brutes, as well as growing more mature and patient. The females have turned their penetrating scans to studying the internal make up of living organisms. (two schools of song. destructive/primal vs introspective/ inspecting/ curious)
Problems on the horizon/ already happened
-tunnels are starting to get cramped, periodic tremors endanger parts of the tribe and may require at least partial movement to surface, Alpha may die of old age soon, reports of walking blade schwirms.

The scouts take the other way around the lake, to further study their region. Is duty of handed from tribe. On their hike they discover a strange collection of hills and strange noise in the distance. Near them are many sticks with strange sounding objects attached, the noise is pleasing to the ear. Each one has a music attachment that is pleasing to the ears. They take one per scout, make note of the strange place, but venture no further.

Hunting comes easy to the troop on their adventure and they want not for food, however as they venture into the mountains, every night a horrific screeching can be heard, every night, it gets closer. It was on the darkest night that a towering beast with red eyes and many sharp blades made itself apparent. There was no stalking, no game of cat and mouse, and no time to prepare. It crashed into their ranks with untold savagery, scouts went flying, and injuries were had. however the scouts attacked with whatever was at hand, some beat the creature with their bell sticks, and others used axes. The noise of the sticks seemed to distract and drive the creature mad, unable to focus or attack properly it trashed wildly. the Scouts took note of this and as a team made noise and attacked. The yelling, banging, and chiming disoriented the creature enough that they managed to bring it down and hack it to death with no real looses on their side. Sure, there were broken arms, scratches, busted...exoskeletons, and even a few lost eyes, but all lived that night.....

...Into town came the scouts, long to though be dead, dragging a creature thought to be legend. A ripper tyrant.

The tribe mulled over the consequences of each path. Debate, worry, and hope were abundant in equal measures. A small minority wished to stay as they were. Sehquestas spoke. The tribe cannot afford division, nor can it afford stagnation. New, stronger, larger pens will be built immediately on the edge of the forests, the creatures will be herded there. More will be captured if they can during the construction of the new pens, and during the time of leaves. This may not be as many as hoped for, but it is a cautious step forward. The shamans have leave to pursue the deamers, as it was their actions that started this progress. The closeness of the tribe will be able to support them and their needs. The traditionalists will have to be satisfied with this result, as it is not an absolute victory for any one group.

the new pens are made of already existing trees, logs and vines, as well as new saplings to eventually make a living wall. essentially fenced off chunks of of the forest that are more open. This was thought up by all the major representatives of the tribe.

With the third villages merging with Staatgreich they now need to find some way for other villages to pay for western villages food. Souhern village has no way or idea how to repay for food so they now try to find way to feed themselves. They are no hunters like people in western village so they try to find some edible plants. Eastern village tries to repay with helping Westerns to hunt easier as they now try to develop better weapons. Staatgreich is also interested in finding more nomadic tribes in the north and sends scouts to search the land.

Tree Shaping – (an idea taken from nongent)
During the Time of Leaves the Iminye practice tree shaping. It is the construction of structures using living trees. They tie tree branches together, so that they grow to support the weight of Elenii. They will also make scaffolding to direct the tree's growth. The Earthshaking Grub clan is the most skilled at this.

Everyone praised the wisdom of the Grim Elder. And the Return Feast is not marked my clan divisions. Upon returning to the Edge of the Forest, the tribe makes preparations for the feast. Kirunna are slaughtered for their meat. They dig the fire pit and roast it.

The Mothers of the tribe lay down their grub packs and let their grubs molt. The grubs start walking on their four legs and become true children. The mothers are extremely proud.

The young adults present themselves to the tribe and profess themselves becoming hunters and grazers. Some take a new profession of herder. They will tend to the growing number of Kirunna, herding them around the prairie. Aeiro, the grazing hyper-male, becomes the Master Herd Elen.

During the late night, the young adults retreat into the forest for privacy. The grubs from this night will be brought up in the clan of their mothers. Huly is gloomy because the Earthshaking Grub clan has very few potential mothers.

After the feast, the tribe checks the Tree Shapes from last season. Forest demons are known to roost during the off season. They also make plans to explore the lands to the East. Lastly the grazers are tasked by the Solith to gather a collection of different plants.

As far as map making, the tribe must decide how to measure position. Some want to make the map according to distance from the mountain peak. A polar map based on distance from the mountain and the angle from the town square. Others say they must make the map directions according to right angles from the town square.

Some sorts of dirt and mud in the fire pit had hardnened into a strong, but somewhat brittle material. Someone gets the idea to make containers out of the stuff, which at the very least keeps a lot more dirt out of everything.

Netmanship is the crowning talent of the Ruufaya tribe. Young Puruu are given a net as soon as they are developed enough to hold it and will practice throughout their lives, catching food for the tribe. The standard grip of the handle has evolved to be lain down the forearm with the end held in the hand and with it comes a new horizontal "snap-back" technique to ensnare game on the same plane as the Puruu.

Over the next few weeks Earthshaker Grub women were discovered with grub. Hulys realize that some balance was returning after the turbulence of the Time of Grass. Until he saw the settlement that they left.

The tree shapes from last season had degraded. The ties had been undone and the branches had grown wild. Seeing the disorder, the Stewards set right to work fixing their home up. They never noticed the Inviting Bark sisters leaving the camp.

The sisters left to explore the eastern side of the Forest. This side was wild with underbrush and the canopy was abuzz with chirps and unknown crys. They traveled further than they ought and by the time they realized it was dark.

Out from the dark underbrush came a dank smell and then a spray of burning green mist. It caught the first Eleni in the chest, bringing her down in pain. The creature burst out of the brush and tackled the second Eleni with its tentacles. The last Eleni ran away as fast as she could. A small creature caught onto her leg and crawled its way to her back.

The last sister felt a stab in the back of her head before blacking out.

When the tribe realized the Inviting Bark sisters were missing, they sent out a search party. They found the remains of two. They looked half eaten, the victims of forest demons.

At the sad news, the Eleni females clawed at the dirt in grief. The males immediately organized a search party for the last sister. Aeiro, the calm hearted hyper-male, cousin to the sisters, who never had a mean idea in his head, who fought his rage daily, went running into the dark forest.

Meh, it's a start I suppose. Old-timey map of Korobushka with some of the polar directions, one set from the peak, and one set from the tribe.

Some of the more inventive shwirm come up with an idea... what if we could keep the ice by *tricking* it into thinking it's "home".
You remember how Mythbusters showed that insulating a snowman kept it from melting as quickly? That's what I was thinking here. The shwirm have accidentally stumbled on some science here. This roll will determine how successful they were (given that they're working from a false premise).

as for the three mystery rolls, here they are. Kah culture continues to be somewhat independent within the tribe, though this diversity may perhaps not be a bad thing. The more brutal aspects of their life are starting to become a thing of the past, though when aged, instead of seeking death in an impossible hunt, they seek death at the hands of their own children, in one last savage, if futile fight. There is no anger, or despair in those final moments, perhaps only a deep understanding and grim acceptance to die by the way they lived.

next two rolls.

The Kah, and Tra Women produce a large number of eggs, and soon there will be many twins.

The resent tremors, as well as the increased population in the cramped tunnels has raised the levels of tensions in the tribe. The old alpha of the tribe, Thun, has decided that it is the time for the Lufae people expand their living space.
He has both ordered the construction of additional tunnels and chambers, and sent out search teams for new, geologically more secure areas to make new settlements in. Scouts have been sent both up and downriver and some of them even boldly began searching the edges of the plains, planting wind chimes on their way.
Females skilled in the use of their sonar are put to help in both the tunnel expanding and in the search of potential new settlement places.
In addition, some of the artisans have started trying to develop ways to reinforce the existing tunnels so that the tremors wouldn't affect them that much.

Some of them have started on expanding and improving the shrine, so that the wyverns would find it more pleasing. (More chimes, flutes, bells and most importantly, feeding pits.)

Khuna has refined the howls to the point in which he is confident that he can use the skill to hunt down prey. He takes few of the other brutes who have also learned the technique, some geist wolfs and heads out to the mountains, to investigate the rumors of the bipedal bladeshwirms.

One thing that strikes me about the development of ancient cultures is the strange way that some seemingly "advanced" things come way before others. Ancient China for example was said to have had something resembling mental hospitals long ago, yet even today they possess herbal folk "remedies" that do fuck all. Rhino horn as an aphrodisiac, for example.

Sasha in truth is not "idiot cousin", but suffers from a psychological condition known as "pica" [Pie-kuh]. It is basically a compulsion to eat things that are not edible. What I'd like to roll for is the basic discovery/concept of mental health. Of recognizing mental maladies as health issues rather than "demon possession" or locking them up.

Horrified beyond belief, stunned by his own brutality, Aeiro howls at the sky. Out of the forest comes a large forbidding figure. At the same time, a sinister fungal centipede crawled its way up Aeiro's back.

"Have you come for me, Grim visitor?" he said, "I have killed my own kin." The figure walked into the grove and revealed himself as Durai.

Durai had followed Aeiro to see the old hyper-male rage fighting he had left behind. He had tracked Aeiro until finally finding him looking over the Eleni female.

Durai answered in a graveled voice, "I don't believe you." He looked around the scene. He saw Aeiro's bloody hands and antlers. Aeiro had charged the female then beat her about the head. Death would have been quick. But Durai knew more there was more to the scene. "It looks like you killed her, but you wouldn't have attacker her first."

"I don't understand," Aeiro began to say but was bitten hard on the back of his neck. The sinister centipede grew its barbs into his spine. Pain forced him to stand and charge Durai.

Durai wrestled the other hyper-male. He was slower but had more experience. He threw Aeiro behind him. He swung his head and antlers at the sinister centipede, knocking it off. Duari wrapped the creature in a leather hide pouch.

"Aeiro, I believe his spirit just possessed your body. It might have used your cousin as well. I will take this thing and show it to the tribe. I want you to remember the rage that brought you out here. Use it to protect the tribe."

With that Aeiro took a stump and uncovered a nest of the centipedes. He crushed them all. He marched into the forest his mission renewed. Durai took the female's remains and the pouch back to the tribe's camp.

Every Eleni was outfitted with the Kirunna leather hides. Thanks to repeated Kirunna bucking during the Time of Grass, the hunters molted an extra layer of exoskeleton. This extra protection could be the difference many a critical injury and a lethal blast of spores.

Firil was quick to point out that they could return to the plains right now and cut their losses. He was shamed by the Grim Elder who took up an axe ready to lead her clan. Firil took back his statement. Each clan led a war party into forest.

The shaman looked upon her grandson, just a child when he first approached her, and now on the verge of adulthood and a master of reading the winds. With him ready to take her place, she decided that it was time to retire from the position of being the tribe's shaman. A ceremony was held for the change, and once completed, the Vierachè celebrated the naming of the new shaman.
After the ceremony and party had ended, the new shaman climbed up to the ledge where his grandmother always went to commune with the wind spirits. Almost immediately, he was met by a breeze traveling east through the valley, beckoning for someone to follow. He brought the news back down to the tribe, and an exploration party was assembled the next day.

Okay, quite susceptible to intoxication it seems.

When the pink Puruus arrived, they were quickly surrounded by others with curved, wooden spears, babbling in some unknown language. When it was seen that these Puruus didn't have any identifiable weapons, the Yapap warriors lowered their spears. At about this time, an elder about three times taller than the rest (but hunched over and using his first set of arms for walking) approached the group. He looked at the pink strangers and said something to the warriors. They began to follow this elder, also gesturing to the pink Puruus to follow. Those taking the rear would prod them with the dull ends of the spears if needed.

new tunnes expand out. Existing tunnels are reinforced with wooden and bone braces like a mine. those who go upriver discover a new hunting ground with abundant game. downriver is little of note. the plains find little of note as well. all three scout teams planted many chimes along the way, expanding territory they will not get lost in. lliath finally learns the wyvern song (more then 3 failures at this point, plus all experience) it is not a perfect understanding, but the communication is there, or so she thought. A hopeful but foolish attempt to ride one of the beasts results in her getting dropped from a high but not fatal height, by an angry wyvern. ((accounts for roll of 1)) she will be recovering for a while from the near death drop. In her absence her apprentices have improved the shrine vastly, enlisting help from the artisians. The Wyvern's come with great regularity now, several times a day. Perhaps the greatest significance to this is that they will sometimes roost there, and leave their young behind in the Geist's care when they hunt.

The Korobushka do indeed discover the nature of the mind, and begin to develop their own understanding of it. Sasha has stopped eating wood. he is still an idiot. This marks the beginning of what may be a great cultural revolution for the tribe of the Korobushka. ((load me up with some rolls on your next post man, i hunger.))

Hunters find a leviathriwm bursting out the ground with intent to eat them. (its pretty fucking big.) roll to survive, one for evasion, for retaliation, and for retreat or a follow up on the attack in addition to whatever else you roll on in your next post. In the clearing a "sick" cathedral bellows and grunts, laying on its side. it is no position to fight back, nor is it aggressive. The tribe watches with curiosity. It begins to lay eggs. ((retcon if it cathedral's give birth to live young, it will then be live young.))

((prior experiences being tacked onto the rolls, as well as liberal bending of the situation by me.)) The first day of combat went poorly. Only inviting bark made real progress, finding and killing several demon nests. The next day the tribe moved as a mob and managed to clear their territory half way to the river in the east, but no progress on the river to the north.

Exploration east revealed very little other then a few burn pits in the middle of the rugged wilderness, and some abandoned tools. Hand Axe found.

The hunters who stayed at the clearing cautiosly approach the huge beast. None of these young males have ever seen such a spectacle. They could slay the beast, but it is clearly ill, and they would gain no honor for such a kill. One of them begins to examine the eggs/ the young.

Meanwhile, the other hunters fight for their lives against the Leviathwirm. Skuller charges the huge creature head on, and Krog, not to be outdone, joins him

Only Krog and Skuller survive the onslaught of the massive beast. It churns the ground like it is water, and eats the hunters whole, striking again and again. In the end the warriors were forced to retreat, though it is more likely the mighty leviathwirm had its fill. A lesson was learned that day, though it depended on who you talked to. "some things are just too big to kill" or "we need bigger weapons"

The pink explorers are lead into a clearing below the canopy of Lubs and Hexises. There are many puruus here taking care of their day-to-day business, from skinning animals, chopping up meat, making spears, and even making containers that somewhat resemble the soup containers, but made of mud set in a fire rather than wrapped leaves.
When the group arrived, many stopped what they were doing, seeing these odd puruus. Pink with no hands on their tails. Another elder of similar size descended from the treetops, confronting the one leading them. After a short moment of arguing, he looked at the explorers, and back to the other elder before permitting them to pass.

The Yapap had no place for keeping prisoners or bindings, but they'd be kept around the center of the clearing, with the warriors keeping a close eye on them. Minutes later, another member of the tribe came up, carrying two containers. One was a clay jug full of water, the other was a skin pouch with some fruit, yazda, and a couple scraps of meat inside. "Food," he said in a language that the explorers couldn't know, placing a hand on the pouch. Similar was done with the jug of water.

(This is a long ways away, to them, your Puruus look really weird, and they can't help but to be a bit suspicious. The NPC tribe was close enough to have almost the same language).

The Ruufaya are completely blown away by the advancement these blue strangers have made and look around, frankly dumb-struck.
Liara (named for an anonymous lurker, pictured >>20137158 ) has been leading the Ruufaya pack so far and she accepts the offering of food on behalf of her party, picking raga fruit and yazda from the pouch, as she recognises them, and taking a long drink of water.
She smiles widely to display her appreciation as she hands back the clay jug. Her fellow Ruufaya watch anxiously from further behind; her hand never strayed from her net.

To the Eastern village the forest is the best source of materials for weapons so they now attempt to pacify the forest (AKA cutting trees and hunting dangerous animals down). As there has been problems with animals in both southern village and E-W road, western village sends hunters to deal with these pests. Family found in the north is peacefully forced in to the tribe as they know that they have no chance against Staatgreich and that they will only profit from joining. They now try to build path to northern family(N29) as their nest will work as lookout to the north. Areas to the southwest are unknown so scouts are sent to that direction.

I didn't expect them to literally solve for mental illnesses, more of realize that they are "diseases" in of themselves. Only the beginning, as they say. Shit, I don't think we have a remedy for pica IRL...

Hmm, anyway. A note on the structure of the village. Each immediate/nuclear family lives in a single home, but the homes are clustered around relatives, forming whole neighborhoods of distant cousins. Each family has an elder or leader. Known as the patriarch or matriarch.

The elders meet to decide major decisions in the village. It has been suggested that a central building, used solely for these meetings be built. A town hall, if you will. Mounted upon the wall will be the ripper tyrant skull.

Wood begins being used to construct buildings, before it was just hide stretched over bone or wood. Now it's wood with a hide inner layer for insulation, or at least, that is the goal.

A young shwirm begins picking the busharri in the forest, to be used for food later. He wonders though, why not just plant some at home, so he didn't have to walk all the way into the terrifying snowy pine forest, risk getting eaten? He thinks... and takes a few seeds home, to plant in the ground. Maybe they will grow, maybe they will not.

The reinforcements and expansions done to the main village allow the Lufae people to live more securely in their home. Thun is pleased to hear about the news from upriver, and decides to send out few of his most trusted sons, along with competent females to start up a small hunting settlement, to which the main tribe could rely on in case of a disaster.

Some of the artisans still ponder how to further reinforce the tunnels and burrows of the tribe. Up to this point, the tribe had mostly used dried mud, bones and wooden poles to strengthen their tunnels. The artisans are however trying to figure out how to make the walls of their tunnels as sturdy as stone.

The scouts that headed downriver decided to make a checkup on the blung horde infesting the area. The elder scout fears that the blungs will soon burst out from their hive and sweep the nearby areas with their hordes.

Despite her injury, Iliath continues to work in the shrine. She continues to teach her children and other apprentices, as well as communicate with the wyverns. She and her daughter have started to tend the wyvern pups left to the shrine. They offer them food, and sing to them, to keep them calm while their parents are hunting.
Iliath has even tried to teach the pups the songs of her tribe.

Khuna is alarmed by the missing chimes, who would have taken them? He sends some of his companions back to the village, while he, 2 other brutes and 3 geist wolfs continue onward to the mountains, in search of the chime thieves.

Rolling for:
Expanding upriver
Checking on the blungs (shouldn't the hordes start moving anyways?)

... The Time of Woe

The first day of combat went poorly, the demons hid well and ambushed the hunters. They survived the spore blasts by the skin of their teeth. Causalities still ranked high, especially with the Grim party. They spread themselves too thin working their way north. Sehquestas caught a nasty blast and was mauled. She died shortly after and her body was taken back.

The Inviting Bark hunters used the trees to their advantage. They climbed the trees and were able to maneuver and reinforce themselves. Leaping from branch to branch and dropping down unexpectedly, they surprised the demons on the ground. Their favorite son, Aeiro died as well. He was last seen brawling and charging a Elen sized demon with thick arms.

The tribe reorganized and revised their strategy. They would use the Inviting Bark techniques and concentrate on purging the forest to the east.

((I dig your map man, that is slick. for reference use for you, a scout from your tribe's race can travel about half a square a day at a brisk pace during the waking hours.))
Many trees are cut down, but in an almost checkerboard pattern, allowing the forest to eventually regrow, lumberjacks and foresters your bugmen are.. East road is cleared of beasts, and meat/ bone/ resource is gained. the West road is still infested, and a few hunters were killed. the north west path is constructed, and southwest, no one returns from it. there is only death there.

((Nice village man, i like. As for the mental illness, its not a perfect fix. more of a "your tribe has developed heart to heart counseling, and can convince him to stop. he is still mentally ill. and an idiot.)) The town hall progresses quite slowly due to a freezing rains and slush, same for the houses. Logging has been dangerous, with trees falling down and a few were cut close to the village edge with the trees crushed some huts, no one was hurt. The busharri grain does indeed grow quite well outside the forests, and the elders are impressed. farming here you come.

The expansion upriver is a bit rocky, but the first settlement is formed. It is a very spartan establishment. The blungs are sitting tight, but have grown in numer, thankfully they are not too interested in the cold mountain region. The wyvern pups are a wild sort, more eager to play then learn, but they are friendlier then their parents. Those play bites hurt thought. Khuna has to turn back due to a severe storm of freezing rain and slush. He and his band get very sick, but not deathly so. The currenlt alpha directed the artisans to experiment in an isolated tunnel that was no longer in use. 2 brutes, 3 artisans, 2 females and one child who was playing in there were crushed/ trapped in the cave in. The geist can hear muffled songs of pain from within the rubble. no idea on survivors. time is of the essence as they may suffocate, or give in to the crushing weight.
