The advisors of the general, in charge until he returns, be omen aggravated by the constant drinking habits of the shwirm, and completely cut off the beer supply until the barracks and library are done.

As the stone is pickaxes into new rocks for tools, one shwar gets the idea of making the walls out of stone rather than wood. He presents this idea to the advisors, confident this new source of stone would be enough to fuel the construction.

The explorers are sent with some dismay by the scientists, who are told to camp out near the wyvern area for several days so as to learn their flight patterns.

Apparently removing the beer of the shwirm motivates them enough to greatly focus on building. They tear down what they previously built and replaced the whole thing with stone. They barracks is built to house many fighters and an armory, and even impresses the general. The library is also built. Just not so awesomely.

The blimps are able to follow the wyrems movements from afar. They follow them while they test some new weapons. The scouts discover that the riders carry weapons that devastate ground targets. They also gather some intel that the wyrems land somewhere to the north. Continuing to scout the riders could result in discovery and retaliation.

Gogan and Krogoan rest in furry beds, they are fed healing drink to help them recover, but it is uncertain if they will live. In the meantime they try to pass on their knowledge to a few of the other wise men while they are bed ridden. The wind chief has returned and he begins meditating on the sacred mountain, he becomes interested in the shadow drink and drinks a small sip of it, he finds that the enters a state of near unconciousness. His mind is perfectly at ease, his breathing shallow and slow. After meditating he believes that the shadow drink helps to communicate with the ancestors. Many of the more spiritual tribesmen climb onto tall mountains and take small sips of the shadow drink, entering a trance-like state of spiritual nirvana. Trajectory is discovered, now the tribe now understands how objects arc in the air, this helps with understanding gravity a little more, but not much. Warriors that use the slingbow can now 'snipe' enemies from across huge lengths of land using their knowledge of trajectory. The wise men start to discuss simple mathematics like addition and subtraction, using rocks as examples. They also start discussing the idea of laws

Rogalth is very happy about the new and grander hunting guild, the hunters that decide to join the guild are given more independence, they are no longer hunters of the tribe, but hunters of the guild, as such they are much more private and are entitled to their kills rather than forced to give it to the tribe, which Gormal doesn't very much approve of but puts up with it for the time being. Some of the warriors experiment with the slingbow, the weapon isn't all that efficient with larger creature, the pebbles and rocks they sling aren't enough to hurt their enemies. They try to improve the slingbow, and use tiny spears for ammo. The builders try their hand at building another road, this time they use a mixture of gravel mixed in with gabai.

Infact a large sand hill is artificially created for sled racing, it entertains the people and improves their sledding skills. A group of fishermen are sent to the cove to hunt, but more importantly bring back an exotic creature to study, the wise men are bored. Speaking of fishing, the slingbows and spears aren't efficient at killing sea creatures, so the fishermen try to invent a new tool to use. Three scouts are sent out to explore the local area.

Khuna is pleased with the progress being made by his tribe. The new weaponry and defensive measures make the tribe feel overall more secure. The reports of the offerings of the puruus from north east are taken with some amount of skepticism by the majority of the tribe however. Ilith and few of her pupils she managed to convince about her discovery however are intrigued by the puruus and their offering. They head out and set up a small and discrete outpost for monitoring the puruus. She thinks that by studying them she could find the proof she needs to convince others of her discoveries.

The downriver settlement of Fa Kaath is still in the progress of relocating to the lub forest proper. Some of the settlers try to device improved tools for carrying water, so that they could finally drain the lub pools. Others have abandoned the idea of draining the pools, and instead have begun developing some sort of floating beds that they could place atop of the pools, while others continue to develop their net based homes. One important trait in all these efforts is the attempt to make a large dwelling that could house numerous geists, or even the whole tribe inside.

In the other settlements, developments have also been made. The settlers of the upriver village of Kun Kaath have continued to develop their great huts. They have attempted to improve the acoustic qualities of the huts, and some of them have started making decorative carvings and protrusions that cause pleasing echoes to the geists. Coincidently, these decorations resemble ribs and tubes.

This settlement is mostly a religious one, it is a site of reverence towards Lupia, the singing goddess. The wyvern riders often train in the canyon, and a new shrine is being built to house these warriors, and their mighty companions.

Now that the riders are proficient with their new weaponry they return to their task of patrolling the borders of the Lufae people. Some of them are also sent on scouting missions during nights, to monitor the neighboring songless settlements.

The Urupuruu continue to tweak out their Purite drums, using thinner sheets of Purite and heavier wrapped cloth sticks. Lupo is especially anxious about how the music will turn out, for the sounds made by the Purite seem to be what interested the geist most.

With the development of a system of writing, and the recorded history of the Urupuruu so prominently displayed, some puruu begin to write their own personal histories, small autobiographies carved onto clay tablets. As these self stories become a popular thing, the Small Council decides that they need a place to put them. it is decided that the Runu hut shall be expanded and rebuilt with the new building materials, and that all works of writing are to be stored there.

One of the smaller puruu in the militia decides that the heavy axe blade end of the Urgosh makes it too cumbersome to wield. With the axe head stripped from the weapon, the weapon is reduced to a shorted, thick spear with a slightly elongated pointy end.

When the general returns from his trip to the Nag Ber'sk, he announces that they shall build a road to their fortress and the main village, and that beer was to be imported to them weekly. The workers, finally done with the buildings, rush to work.

The general sees the underground source of stone, and orders the construction of a mine, so as to get a hold of more of this stone. The miners set up the first wooden supports and set up a ramp that leads into the mine, so that crunchas could be used to haul the stone out to the storeroom.

Meanwhile, carpenters begin to experiment ways for the crunchas to carry more things around. Simply dragging the stones dug into the ramps and roads, and shwirm were tired of performing maintenance on them.

New outpost in the forest seems to be doing well with it's purpose as both lookout and trade hub for nomads. Exotic goods are traded inside and outside different clans are able to meet each other with lesser danger of being attacked by others.

This new type of stone is not seen as useful as it is too heavy and hard to be used for building and even if it's glittering nicely why would they use it when it is useless.

At last a hunting party is sent to woodcutters camp to clear its surroundings of stalking jungle geists. With the hunters there are some who are quite adept at using the Sturm (rope&stone) and this would be great time to see how useful it is for hunting dangerous animals.

Southern village gathers an expedition to northern lub forest to find new exotic plants to farm. I have no idea if there are any plants like that there but damnit that's why i try.

Primitive rafts/boats are attempted to be built in western village to help them to trade with new town in west because the way there is rough and building road there would take huge effort.

So Before the Altume Cheifs left, the Iminye Elders negotiate the charter for the new Town Eden. The charter outlines how the town will constructed and run, as well as the knowledge and provisions that will be brought into Eden.

To prepare for the new town, the Iminye appoints Hulys as the Iminye Councilman, Halin as the Knowledge Councilman, and Fali as Provision Councilman, to which Fali said, "Of course I'm the Provision Councilman. Who else can throw a grand feast for hundreds of Eleni? An Altume? Ha. They'd throw shells on the ground and say 'Eat.'"

The Iminye pilgrims that were to colonize the Firil Sea are repurposed to settle the new town Eden. They are now joined by most of the clanless. A scout team is sent to discover a coastal land to found the town. Another is sent to discover a lacorra badlands.

The last thing that needs to be done or at least progressed is the sails. This is knowledge that the Iminye promised would be used to keep in touch with Altume territory. Without it, journeys to the Altume are long and dangerous. Sea travel off the coast should be faster and safer.

The tribe has nothing to offer at this time, they're already running short on food back home, turning what was once a diplomatic envoy into a beggar's plea. The representatives from Mikhail are noticeably nervous.

> on the mountain climber
A small youth, a boy named Chovit climbed the mountain. He was the runt and would not survive anyway, he would spare his parents the burden of taking care of him, he would climb the great mountain and just hope that some ceryatzi ate him. In times not so lean, his clan's healer would see to the youth's depression but if the healer even lived he was likely tearing and clawing at scraps like the rest of Korobushka.
Upon the third night he had reached the top of the mountian. It is on the peak, waiting to die that he has time to think. Think about his life, his family, his mind, his world, his fate. Everything, really, for only now, alone with his thoughts did he ever ponder the big stuff. He had sat and thought, ruminated and meditated, twisted and turned in his mind all things. Who are we, what is the purpose of life? What is good? What is evil? How do we separate the two? How can we know?
Upon the dawn of the fourth day, as the sun rose to greet the world, to shine its light upon all the dark places of the night, to chase the shadows and to cast its shine upon the snow, making it glitter like silver... young Chovit saw the whole of the South Continent, it is said, up there on the mountain. It was like watching the first sunrise at the dawning of the world. So it was that Chovit, the boy who came to die was given new life. It was time to return home...

Chovit descended the mountain... he had the answer to the famine. It was then that Chovit began to preach his newfound philosophy, the "virtue of selflessness". It was when we compete, when we fight each other that evil occurs, only through cooperation and sharing could the tribe survive these lean times. The mountain has always provided, he said, and it hasn't stopped providing, we have simply been too greedy. Take no more than you must, and share all that you can give, you talent, your wisdom, your food... with each other. To each according to their need, he said, and by each according to his ability. If everyone worked as hard as they could and did not take any more than was absolutely needed then perhaps they could survive until the next harvest.

The people normally would not have lent their ear to this proseletyzing youth, but they were so deserperate for a solution they could not help but lend an ear. When they listened, it made sense. Were not the problems of their tribe begun when the Zartik hoarded their knowledge? Sergei then desired such power for themselves, causing raids and other woes. Were not such woes alleviated when the Explorers shared the knowledge with the whole of the tribe? Did they're problems not start when, even though they had enough, they kept eating, and cut into reserves? Had they been satiated with mearely being fed, then perhaps those reserves would be here now....

For the Korobushka, it all made sense, and the philosophies of Chovit sweep through the tribe. It is the beginning of a new day for the Korobushka, and the birth of a religion.

The Korobushka begin to ration out their food, with the Elders of all the clans determining how best to ration it, though they cordially invited Chovit to be on board, in recognition of the fact that it was his wisdom that had saved them, and the boy became a a man in their eyes.

As the years passed, Chovit refined his philosophy and continued to preach the wisdom that he believed came from the mountain itself. The mountain that the Korabushka live under becomes a sacred symbol, and the manifestation of divine selflessness. The mountain gave everything, and asked for nothing. The peak, especially becomes a holy site, where divine wisdom shone like the rays of the morning sun upon young Chovit. The position of distributor of food remains with the elders of each clan, Zartik, Sergei, Nikolai, Mikhail, Klezmer, and Ruhaj, but in memory of Chovit, a seventh seat sits at the Council of Elders, the Voice of the Mountain. Unlike the Elders, the VotM speaks not for the clans but for the mountain and its holy wisdom, a religious post to guide (but not rule) the elders.

Food is rationed out to each individual equally, all adults recieve the same daily amount, and as do the children, though children recieve more than adults (need food to grow up strong and healthy) and nesting females also recieve extra rations as well (they're eating for two after all). Chovit lives to a ripe old age, but dies without a child of his own. He charges the people to look into their hearts and elect a new VotM, to open their hearts to the wisdom of the mountain. An election is formed, where each adult shwirm gets a vote in the decision, save the elders, and a shwirm cannot vote for themselves (that wouldn't be very selfless, now would it?).

The Korobushka do not have writing, but they record the events of Chovit's life as primitive painting on scraps of leather and oral tradition. In this way, the memory and wisdom of Chovit is preserved.

While successful in the eradication of the small tribe to the north, a handful of injuries were sustained. As usual, crushed eggs were used for treatment. It was noticed by many that they had run incredibly low on them. Head elder Kwaku didn't pay much mind when told of this, and did Ytai did not seem to be too concerned about this either. He simply responded "A shortage of eggs in the pools worries you? Don't be absurd. There will be more by the months end."
On the other hand, Retti, the youngest of the elders, did see some issue with being wasteful with them. If Kwaku was to lead another assault in the near future, some form of protection would be required.

The Lufae are content to stay put and watch the songless tribes continue to do their thing, for now at least.
They are however adamant about keeping the songless out from their territories. The success they had with scaring off the shwirms from the valley of voices inspire the tribe to try similar tactics again. They try to scare off all those who intrude too near to their settlements.

Some of Ilith's pupils are flesh singers, and as they observe the puruus, their strange internal makeup intrigues the singers more and more.

Some of the artisans and the flesh singers have started studying the properties of the emils slime that the Shan Meer warriors bear. They seek to better understand the strange substance, in order to better utilize it, and help the ones infected with it to carry it's burden easier.

Khuna is pleased with all the new warriors of the tribe, but he also realizes that the Lufae warriors aren't truly unified. They are made from individual groups of specialized warriors, who don't really work with each other. Khuna wishes to change this, as he is sure that with co-operation, all the warriors would be much more efficient. The Hunters could bring down much greater prey with the aid of the brutes and the riders for example. Khuna begins to device an unified command structure, and combat doctrines for the warriors of the tribe. He also orders the groups to work with each other more so they could develop tactics together.

(As a rule of thumb, almost all the warriors are females, scouts are usually males, brutes are always males and the riders are also predominately females. This is because the females are the more numerous gender of the geist species. The ratio of males to females is around 1:3. I state this because it can be important when regarding co-operation with two groups that have different genders. There is always sexual tensions in the air when brutes interact with females for example.)

Thanks to sturm some of the hunters managed to survive the green horrors of the forest. As its efficiency as weapon is undeniable learning how to use it is really hard and only few will ever master its use. Hunters using sturm are now seen as elite hunters because the weapon is powerful and gives advantage of distance over the normal stoneball club.

Because the boats fail the Western colony grows self-supporting. Because they are mostly from western village they are hunters and fishers so getting food isn't problem for them.

about Staatgreich military. Staatgreich doesn't have real standing army. Each family/clan supports fighting force of its own and so the oldest and biggest families have largest militias. It is normally tradition for the biggest clan to take care of guarding the city and working as police. This of course gives them unfair advantage because of the risk that there is corruption (well not really corruption. more like doing what is best for the family).

The puruu have created their purite drums, and are very happy. Now, the sound of metal drum bands float through the air of the main village, now known as Yetu Mahali.

The militia captain, or the "Askari Wakuu" is still determined to train the Urupuruu into a fighting force to be feared. The idea is proposed that the slingstaves should be combined with the shortspears, having one end being pointy, and the other end with a sling on it. This will allow warriors to pelt the enemy with a barrage of stones before charging with the spears.

The sounds of the purite drums have lifted the spirits of the Urupuruu, and Elder Lupo has ordered a hunt. The Puruu hunting party heads west, looking for Yazda.

The explorers spend a lot of time looking for a subtle means of kidnapping a puruu. In the end they can only blitz a single wandering lost scout.

The geist are able to make horns, brass dishes, and simple hand drums. They are able to tune different horns into many musical notes and pitches.

Unfortunately the research was disorganized and the efforts were slowed down considerably. They eventually gather all the information together and begin the effort again.

The shrine suffers from the same problems of the lub village. There are not enough references and information gathered together. The geist get the idea to collect and organize the knowledge of the tribe in one place.

Emil research goes surprisingly well and doesn't have the problem of other projects. The flesh singers actually discover a way to remove the emil. However removing the false skin is lengthy and arduous process for both parties. Shan Meer describe a withdraw effect where they feel dirty and naked after the process. When the emil is applied to other creatures, it is discovered that the emil eats the skin of the creature, taking its place.

The Lufae organize themselves and develop military policies that will benefit them for generations to come. The military hierarchy is developed and a chain of command runs through it. Every fighter is accounted for and disciplined to follow the orders of superiors. They also develop combat strategies for many situations against their neighbors. They discover that without allies, any large scale conflict could be incredibly costly.

The different warrior groups dislike working together and haven't bonded in the way Khuna would like. They are however disciplined enough to follow the orders of a superior coordinating them.

The scouts flee back to the fortress, and tell of the weapon that killed their fellow scout.

The Chieftains are worried, very worried. Such a weapon, if used in large numbers, could be devestating against even the mightiest horde of warriors. A messenger is sent to the Oamenii, to warn them of this deadly foe. Meanwhile, the Chieftains discuss their next course of action. After a few days, they decide to send a group of warriors, armed with axes and spiked clubs, and covered in heavy plate armor. Also, with them they shall carry armor made from the bones of the dead scouts, as all of the Nag ber'ek follow a philosophy based of the Kah idea of "Take what you kill," and applied it to everything, even the bones of the dead. Thus, the armor is meant to be given to the geist that killed the scout, though they don't stop to consider that these creatures don't follow the same idea.

The scouts tell the Chieftains that while they hit the creature with javelins, it was already close enough to use the horrid weapon. It would be better to kill such a deadly thing from afar, and so work begins on making a weapon that has farther reach than a javelin. Two competing ideas come up: A smaller javelin, propelled by the forward by animal sinew stretched by a stick, pieces of runna antlers, used to throw javelins farther (think atlatl), and stones thrown with the aid of animal hide.

The tribe conquers their fears, and the wheeled cart is developed. Though some still whisper in dark corners far from the accursed objects that they are evil...evil...out to get the tribe. The cathedral plate armor is made, and fitted to a Schwirm in front of the entire tribe, he stands for a moment, shaking, trying to hold up the weight, and is then promptly crushed like a bug by the weight. It would seem it is far too heavy for the Schwirm, and to thin it down to an acceptable weight would defeat the purpose. This armor is not for the tribe. The blung hordes are discovered to be a loose collection of creatures in a semi fixed ecosystem. The blung field spreads, the species prosper but hunt eachother and anything else within the ecosystem. Yet as a group they respond to non blung organisms almost as an infection, slowly attacking, and becoming more aggressive as the threat penetrates deeper into the horde. They are slowly leaching the land of nutrients the horde needs, while filling it with their own waste. ((new tactics to defeat the blung have been developed a formation called the Panzerkeil, look it up.))
>>20308112
The puruu develop a Inverted wedge formation to capatalize on their older larger weapons. As an enemy comes into the middle they close around it, hacking them to death. It is a victory for the traditionalists in the military. The short spear is combined with the sling, but is a little awkward to use. Many yazda are killed and collected, it was mating season so many of the creatures are full of nutritious eggs. a bonus for the hungry tribe.

And no, she, nor anyone else than the few flesh singers who came up with the idea know of the puruu abduction.

As for scaring away the other tribes, yes, it includes the puruus, but not to the same extent as the other tribes. The Lufae don't want the other tribes to find their homes, but in case of the puruus, they don't make mock attacks, but instead intercept them and ask what they want.

The Warriors look at the screaming geist somewhat unimpressed. Its clear they are a threat, but the noise has done nothing extra to concern them. The warriors leave anyway, their objective complete, but not before taking a single quick half step forward in mock charge, enjoying the geist flinch out of reaction more then fear. The Logeadz are assholes like that. As they walk away they appear to be laughing and...slapping each others hands. an odd race, to celebrate being outnumbered and driven off.

The artisan studies the armor and makes assumptions about a gift made just for an enemy. It is a superb suit, to be sure, with many vunrabilities, but his fatal assumption is that this armor is a standard template instead of a one off. Any warrior attempting to attack the Nag Ber'Ek "weak spots" will be in for sore disappointment.

One day, as carts were being used to get rocks in and out of the mines, the general was overseeing how the shwirm were doing in the tunnels. The miners were doing well enough, considering their ancestors had spent nearly all their time in the caves, and the general was just about to leave when he heard the voice of a Log'Ead and heavy footsteps approaching. He sighed. "This better be important..." he whispered to himself.

And as it turned out it sure as hell WAS.

After the Log'Ead had explained everything there was to explain, the general dismissed him, and he immediatly went over to the workshops. He explained to the bone carvers, carpenters, and masons that he needed something that could be used to fight the wyverns, only giving further information id it was unclear as to the nessessity of this task.

He explained the weapon that had been used against the Log'Eads and what would happen should such a weapon be unleashed on their homes. He explained that a weapon was being developed to combat these beasts, but for now they would simply have to patrol their city and village in greater numbers.

A simple peice of wood, sinew and a sharp stick form the prototype of the first bow. The schwirm are on full alert, becoming very observant. The only other projects currently working are the tortice formation training which is currently being done by carrying large sheets of wood. ((Feel free to start having a little more tribal interaction. why not ask the logeadz to help your tribe build a walled fortress of your own, to protect against the sky, and in in turn, install some observation blimps at their fortress. do some cross training in drills and formations, or weapons/ armor research as something mutually beneficial.))

Altume's offering to eden is slowed down by their patient approch to things, they are still getting ready. ((continue to roll, gathering more people, and resources))
The bow continues to just evade their grasp. The road is complete and functional ((suggest mass roadworks project instead of further indiviudal rolls to fully interconnect your tribe, and perhaps build roads for Poe's tribe.)) The eastern journey is marked with a safe and quiet trip so far.
((again, please do mass changes for things like this, as its safe to say the knowledge of how to make the gabai houses is spread across the entire tribe, but since you did it and go a 16, here you go.)) The houses built at the outpost were rather nice, some of them being two stories tall. The torruz electrocutes the scout to death, but a nearby scout started breathing into his mouth for him out of desperation ((have some CPR)) he survived that day, and was much more cautious. A giant beast with many tentacles is spotted retreating from the investigation. The population increases and the tribe is larger now. The arena remains as it is. ((ignoring last roll))

The village in the lub forest grows, and every day becomes more detailed with the aspects of life and construction, The new musical instruments are beaitful to the geist, though one geist is busy plucking at a stretched piece of sinew from an old meal, contemplating the possibilities. Boats float, but do not move very well and are a little leaky. The new shrine is a gigantic monument half physical, have existing as an entity of sound. It is glorious, and a permanent roost for the wyverns. The casts have a hard time working together, especially between brutes and females, but they force it. Still there is a lack of unity. The geist begin to create a visible border, so incursions on accident do not happen. Chimes, and an earthwork mound are placed and built in regular intervals. Perhaps the songless could "SEE" this, and understand where they need go no further. Brutes can throw heavy things easily. The coil is no exception. The wyvern riders are very busy with their own projects, and the old leader still carries some pull with them all. A majority are studying the Puruu and the "pale/thin song".

The feast of Yazda meat is good, but the surplus has the small council scared that it will all spoil. In order to combat this food-spoilingness, the idea is proposed to cover the meat in dried ragus fruit seeds.

Elder Lupo has noticed something strange about the Lufae people in the past week or so. The wyvren flyers do not come towards their settlement as they once did. In fact, it seems that the Lufae have withdrawn from the north completely. Elder Lupo views this as a bad thing, as if they have offended the Lufae in some way shape or form. Another diplomatic envoy is to be sent towards the Lufae's territory, in order to find out what the problem is.

Askari Wakuu Brutos is continuing to drill the Puruu in military formations, such as the wedge formation, when it comes to a realization that offensive power relies on defensive capabilities. Brutos decides that they should carry around something that could be used to block attacks, something that could be carried strapped to the arm. Like a shallow basket of woven sticks wrapped in hides. Yeah, something like that would work, right?

Rolling for-
Creation of preservatives
Making wicker shields

I should have done this earlier, seeing as how now Nad is sleeping, but I would also like to open communications between the Urupuruu and the Lufae. Perhaps allow one tribe to set up an embassy in the others territory?

Old One Eye's scouts had taken a while to get all their gear, but as soon as dusk came, they set off to locate their enemies. These riders could not be allowed to mass these weapons of destruction without consequence.

The tortoise formation is continuously the lesson being trained into the hoplites during training, for they had no way to fight the wyverns, and trying to carry a bow and quiver in addition to their current gear would be both clumbersome and unpractical, so dedicated archer platoons would have to be drafted.

The bow and arrow continues to be researched, many varients being suggested but only one varient really working out.

A messanger is sent to the Neg'Ber'ek requesting for assistance in building a fort of their own, for while walls were all well and good, they didn't count for shit when your enemy attacked from the air. In exchange they would set up observation blimps in their city for easy scouting of the blung and the wyvern riders.

Close behind the messanger is a group of traders with materials to build huts and stalls. They plan to set up shop in the middle of the road between the nag'ber'Ek and the nearest shwirm vilalge for easy trading.

Drafting, propganda, and recruiting officers working to grow the military still goes on, and the officers wait for able-bodied shwirm to train for the inevitable conflict.

Suggestions to build a fort close to the wyvern riders to the North west are suppressed, but they did have a point. If a base of operations could be held closer to enemy lines, it would push their borders, provide easier resupplying for soldiers on the field, and would allow them to more easily spot and intercept attacks on their main village. Still, they needed archers to keep the wyverns at bay as they built, and they weren't even past the prototype stage yet, so the idea is not carried out, though noted.

Rolling for scouting, further training in the tortoise formation, inventing/crafting the bow & arrow, planning out the fortress, setting up the trade depot, crafting more spears and tower shields, drafting soldiers, and training said soldiers.

I'd very much like to at least have slings... You know what, that can even work into the Nag Ber'ek way of life: Warriors and Hunters may use javelins, but slings are used by women and children, who may not have javelins ready, but can easily find rocks to put in small slings that they carry with them. Yeah, I like that.
MEANWHILE


Back at the Nag Ber'ek town, Deonar'Lo has gotten an idea to help fend off the wyvern riders: What if they simply built up structures that are very tall, the better to toss javelins at the wyverns from? Deonar's assistants do not question him, as they do not question him on most things since they're a little terrified of the mad architect, but will the Chieftains approve this use of cathedral plates? And would such structures be hollow, with functional insides, or solid, perhaps filled with rocks and dirt?


However, one of Deonars apprentices is tired of his mad tutor, and having tasted some beer, decides to travel to the Oamenii village. After a few days, he offers his services to the Oamenii, prefering the idea of living with them, rather than going back to mad old Deonar'Lo. ((free gift to you Oamenii. You get basic understanding of arches from this guy, assuming you accept him.))

It takes a long time, but the tribe heals. Food returns and the next harvest provides more than enough to go around for the Korobushka. Now the tribe can resume exploration and the cataloguing of new lands. A standard of measurment is set, distances are measured from the peak of the sacred mountain, Búskôchôvit (mountain of Chôvit). Cartography begins in earnest. The tribe flourishes under the guidance of the Voices of the Mountian and the teachings of Chôvit. This new religion is called Hashlīm Chôvitúsa (hash-leem choe-VIT-oos-ah). The way, or the path, of Chovit. It's usually shortened to Hashlimévish... "our path".

The Korobushka scouts out northwards, possibly not along the river (you scouted that area before haven't you?). North of the alpine lake, you find a high-altitude meadow full of plants and animals, mostly high-altitude hexis descendants.

Thanks IG. Well, this will bode well, I think I'll have those comrades start hunting some Redaresh, bring home some meat.
I can only assume that the tiff between the Lufae and the Logedz has been going on while the Korobushka have been recovering from starvation. Unaware of the goings on in the outside world, the Council elects to send an envoy to the Valley of Voices. I'll leave Nad to decide how his tribe shall respond.
More exploration, this time on canoes. Going to see what else there is to see, besides that van, down by the river. A big expediton is planned, it's basically the Korobushka version of Lewis & Clark. The two Shwirm leading the voyage are named Lovish and Kailark. What wonders shall they and their band of 10 braves discover?
The Ruhaj are now freed up to try and work towards breeding the dusya into the bug horses, how far along do they get and how close are they to a reliable steed now?

The meat that was left on the leaves and branches absorbed flavors from them. Wondrous flavors. It wasn't long until they were grinding up bark and leaves for spicing the food before drying it. In someone's attempt in speeding up the drying process, he put some meat and fruit near a fire. Instead of getting dried fruits and jerky, he got roasted shish kabobs. The practice of cooking them spread quickly.

During the extermination to the north, it was seen that a Lub severed from the ground would float off into the sky. One puruu was talking about cutting one free some day and riding it up. Someone else responded to that with asking how he'd get down. After the conversation, the whole group went to a Lub and tried piercing the balloon. It sank, but only a little bit. The chambered balloon kept it from instantly plummeting. A basket of hexis leaves was assembled and stuck to the stalk tentacle. In the end, this would end up killing the Lub, but there are plenty more where it came from.

When the net fragment found at the site of the clay pit, there were thoughts off weaving one, but larger. A few uses were already coming to mind for it.

From time to time, a Puruu flashes back to 32 years ago, when she had been swept a short distance down the river on a floating log. The same has happened to a couple others, accidentally and for play. Riding a log was dangerous because it could roll over. Inspiration hit when a leaf floated down. The bowled shape stayed upright as it floated by.

The puruu's preservatives can make food last...forever? perhaps not, but indeed does have a shelf life to rival any hostess product. It may be useful elsewhere. the Wicker shields are easy to make, and defend against projectiles and spears quite well. brutal hacking attacks tend to rip right thru them after a slash or two.
>>20321384

the scouts attempt to form a tortice formation and wade into the unfamiliar territory. The shape attracts unwanted attention form the nearby blung horde. Upon making their way to the Lufae territory they see evenly spaced mounds of dirt with chimes or bells attached, upon reaching the line an attack starts, and as they attempt to push deeper into the territory, the attacks intensifiy....When the scouts finally have retreated many are dead or injured. As soon as they cross the line, they are attacked no more, and the wyvern riders resume false attacks to scare them off. The bow and arrow is developed and is fully functional, with the tribe able to use it proficiently without training much training. The new assistant builder from the Nag ber'ek gets drunk, and the design for the fortress is almost as insane as his masters. The tribe must wait for him to sober up. The trade depo is set up and in time becomes a small town unto itself. there is a shortage of supply materials, so no new weapons or armor are built. A policy of all able bodied citizens joining the milita comes into play. They are not all of the same caliber as the dedicated militia volunteers.

The towers are solid, in a sense. They have a ladder up the side, and hold extra resources. The concept of attacking from the top was an afterthought, but a good one. ((Gained battle silos)) as for the new weapon, the tribe is not really impressed with the whirling murder stick, and opts for the more conservative sling. The sling is easy to use and is rapidly adapted from existing loincloth designs.

The attempt to make the transition from "enough" to "plenty" is met with disapointment. During the civil war there were many families that broke away from the tribe and lived off the land, but in an unbalanced way, chasing off the game. For now farming and ranching is what the tribe will have to do to survive, with many hunters reluctantly learning a new craft. The fishermen, they are still doing good, and aquabats are still pricks. Our two intrepit explorers make it..not too far, not bad either.

The tribe extracts fibers from the vines of the ragas plant, and is able to make small nets fairly easily, but large nets, and even baskets escape their knowledge. The hoe and mortal and pedestal continue to be simple stone tools instead of gaining any refinement, but the tools are beginning to take shape from that stone. The shovel is an excellent tool that lets the tribe dig holes, and even uproot lubs without killing them as well as other things. It has been proven good for crushing skulls in a pinch as well. Attempting to make a trident is hard, and one puruu makes a large wooden pitchfork. He is laughed at. The tribes exapnsion into new territory is hampered by a massive coaliton of small tribes, they attempt to invade, but the enemy force holds their own. ((8 tribes, 2 hostile, 2 indifferent but loyal to the most dominant of the hostile tribes, 4 submissive worker tribes who are more then willing to join, but are being used as cannon fodder by the larger tribes. you are outnumbered in a straight fight, despite better warriors and equipment.)) Your explorers to the south have been pulled off their task to make ready for scouting the enemy. The lubs make fine baloons but are slaves to the direction of the wind. ((leftover roll?)) the boats are made, and while not worthy of rough water, they get around the calm tribal territory quite easily, carrying supplies or tribals.

Upon the return of the One Eye's scouts, the general attempts to send in another squad after bringing the others to the medical bay, this time armed with the new bows and arrows rather than tower shields and spears, though they still have their choppas. The General stresses that stealth must be used, since even in the tortoise formation the shwirm had taken a heavy beating, whereas they were marching in against weapons that were so powerful their armor might as well have been made of berries. After that little lecture, he sends them on their way.

When the new recruits were unable to have the same aptitude for SnS melee as the dedicated militia, the officers merely shrug and instead train them with bows and arrows. They needed the Anti-Air anyways.

Attempts are made to construct a wall around the Trading Village, for the village was just as likely as the farming village to be attacked by the accursed wyverns.

After giving a few days for the Log'Ead engineer to stop drinking so much and waiting out the coming hangover, they ask for the Log'Ead to try again on the designs of the fortress, two local building designers overseeing his work to explain what it was the fortress needed, and he simply needed to find a way for the fortress to be both strong in structure while still having everything the shwirm needed.

Well, not nesessarily into the city, but at least bypass most of the open plains that the wyverns loved to hunt for targets so often in. In order to avoid collapsing the entire city, they head over to the farming village and begin their dig there, simply going in a straight line to avoid not aiming their tunnel in the right direction.

With so much building, the masons decide that mere hand hammer was no going to work, and so they attempt to create a hammer with a wooden handle rather than a roped one.

Joking aside, I'll make a short update now, and return with a larger one later today.

The agression of the shwirms, who completely dissregarded the territorial signs of the Lufae caused anger within the tribe.
Khuna declares the southern border to be unsecure, and orders that numerous maze tunnels are to be dug at the areas around the border and the settlement of Fa Kaath. These tunnels would allow the Lufae warriors to flank and out manouver the aggressors, and to fight them where they wish.
He also orders that more wind chimes are to be buid in the are, so that the tribe could spot intruders easier. (the chimes work like sonar beacons for the geists.)

The artisans are ordered to study the equipment of the shwirms, while the prisoners (assumming there were any) are sent to the flesh singers so that the Lufae might learn how to fight the bugmen better.
Khuna and the most accomplished warriors also start refining the combat tactics of the tribe and new training sessions are ordered for the warriors.

One of the Shan Meer warriors seeks to further show his forth, and he sets out to scout the agressive shwirms further, hoping that the abilities granted by the emils symbiote would help him in his mission.

Okay, I might as well explain how Oamenii security works.

Shwirm are startioned along the walls with torches set up to more easily illuminate the area. Two shwirm with torches are stationed at each gate, and Shwirm patrol the roads with torches. As soon as one of them sees an intruder, they scream out, light an arrow with their torch, and shoot it into the sky. Then the gates are locked down and all the militia in the city are unleashed. Every nook and cranny in the city is searched, and only after an hour has passed without sighting their target do they stop the search, but more guards are placed for the night and the gates stay locked until morning.

Well, there are some things about the geist physiology that people ought to be reminded of.
First off all, the geists have evolved to be extremely stealthy. The slime covering their skin has peculiar optical capabilities that cause it to bend light in a certain way that makes the geists extremely hard to see in low light conditions. This biological "cloaking" allows the geist to blend into the shadows extremely well. Despite their lack of sight, they do know when they are illuminated by light. This is because of their extremely light sensitive skin. Because of these traits, the geists are mostly nocturnal creatures.

The are also extremely adept climbers. Even their great ancestors had gecko like paws that allowed them to scale almost any surface. Of course, the increased size of the modern tribal geists makes them somewhat less adept at climbing than their smaller ancestors, but their ability to scale surfaces is still only matched by that of the puruus.

The settlement of Lupai Kaath in the valley of voices is a religious settlement. The shaman apprentices and young wyvern riders are the majority of this settlement.
They regard the "shwirms of the mountains" with somewhat more suspicion, seeing that the news from the conflict down south has reached them already.
They do however allow the emissaries to speak their mind, outside of their village of course. Aith, daughter of the great shaman Ilith, and the current leader of the wyvern riders meets the shwirms personally. With her there are few warriors and a couple of brutes in addition to the riders accompanying her.

The Fa Kaath settlement is also preparing for the worst. They fortify their positions near their village, building net bridges in the canopies of the forest growing along the small river that flows from north. Traps such as overhanging drop nets and pits are also made to hinder any advances towards the village.
Some of the warriors also get the idea of trying to use the nets in combat, to ensnare their foes.
The settlers try to improve their boats using lub skin weaved over the hull of the boats to keep them from leaking.

The artisans after seeing how the Brutes began using the howling coils decided to help them out by developing a slightly altered version of it, that is better balanced for throwing. The tip of the weapon is also altered, so that it would shatter easier, as the original tip was designed to break from far greater speeds.
These throwing coils perhaps aren't as destructive, but they are far more efficient weapons for the brutes.

The shwirm's envoy was informed by recent theological discourse among the Council and the Voice of the Mountain (hereafter referred to as VotM). The idea of sharing being essential to the Hashlimévish religion is sharing and providing.

Thus the VotM proposed that, in the spirit of the sacred provider mountain, Búskôchôvit, they should provide for their neighbors down in the Valley. The Valley is part of the mountain as well, is it not? Thus making the Lufae there as much the wards of the mountain spirit as the Korobushka. The Elder of Mikhail (currently a patriarch named Saschava) disagrees, since the Lufae immigrated to the Valley and it was the Shwirm who found the place first. If anything, they are invaders, he contends. The matriarch of Ruhaj responds, quoting Chôvit: "the Mountain provides". The Mountain to the Korobushka is kind of like the "Giving Tree", only it gives to *everyone*, providing for all of the mountain peoples needs unconditionally.

So, the shwirm give the Lufae people their greatest gift, recognizing it as such, a gift from the mountain. The busharri crop. In a repeat of past events, like the explorers of old, the Korobushka present several fields' worth of seeds and some of their flat bread and some adult busharri yields. Again, the Korobushka don't know that the Geist are carnivores, though perhaps the Lufae could find some use for the bread and grain, even if only as feed for any livestock you might have.

Aith, and the other geists gaze upon the offerings of the shwirms. The plants and the other things the shwirms are offering don't really interest the geists, but they can see how excited the bugs seem to be about them. Because of this, Aith orders some of the brutes to carry the offerings to storage, while she tries to quickly tell the shwirms to set up their camp at the edge of the village.
The people of the mountain have caught her interest, and she intends to learn from them. The shwirms are shown a clearing near the village where the Lufae bring some simple provisions. Some of the warriors protest to this, but Aith has enough influence to get the others to agree on her plan.

Her first course of action is to contact the scouts who learned the language of these shwirms many years ago. She hopes that they could help her to talk with the shwirms, as she herself lacks the knowledge of their tongue. She also tries to learn it by listening to their chatter.

The shwirms are allowed to stay near the village, and Aith in addition of some other shamans and wyvern riders occasionally visit them in order to learn from them. In turn, the shwirms might even learn more about the Lufae.
Aith is convinced that these shwirms are different than the aggressive ones living down south.

Hulys is not impressed with the provisions the Altume show up with. He saw the Altume as an equal partner, not a poor cousin to be taken care of. Fali waves his hand to his concerns, the Iminye brought plenty. Working with a poor cousin is a big risk, but nothing great comes without risk.

For Fali this new Town was full of ripe investments. He sent fishers off the coast for game. The Herders were directed to breed the Kirunna to create a larger herd. And while it was his duty to discover a food growing system for a large population, he left Halin to discover it. The Altume Hunting guild brought before him invigorated his need to hunt. The Altume would provide in this manner.

Halin talked to the Altume potion master to learn that the Altume had discover several interesting effects. He took the base components and thought that maybe he could increase their potency. Halin uses his basic powdering and boiling techniques, and tests the new brews. As far as growing food, he surveys the need landed for so much food. He figures he can jump start the food growing with some kind of substance. He tests Kirunna dung mixed with plants from one of his Limericks.

The Dreaming shrine is built, it built around a watering hole, so that the Eleni can pray as the bucket their needed water. Vylona promotes herself as Oracle and Priestess.

The envoys, grateful that the Lufae can understand their tongue hunker down and prepare to learn as much as they can about their visitors.

The Lufae are a more developed, larger, and defensive society then yours. You are moving into their home territory with them at the advantage)) The scouts push past the territorial line, and manage to sneak for a while, but it is not long until the force is discovered and the aerial attacks begin. They suprise the wyverns with their new bows and this causes the creatures to retreat, rather then risk injuring the sacred beasts too badly. They manage to push in further until the Brutes begin to throw the modified lances at them while hunters make the air sing with boomerangs and thrown spears. Without shields the scouts are hurt badly, but push on, eventually entering into a bloody melee with their choppas. One brute was killed, and a dozen hunters were killed or maimed, but the scouts retreated and were killed to a man, being pursued even past the border line. The dawn was already upon them and they retreated. Hours after the battle several badly injured Schwirms got up, apparently not as dead as the geist thought, and saved the comrads who they could ((roll a d20 for first aid)), and made their way back to the village.

With the tribe on high alert after the attack, every time an alarm is sounded all work stops and people go to the defensive. Because of this there are many holes that look like entry points to tunnels all over the place, but no real tunnels. Several workers were hurt during the schwirm attack, and their chimes were broken. The Oamenii equipment is solidly built armor from the bones and chitin of local animals, weapons are projectiles and hacking implements. There is no music to them, but the artisans may have ideas for better armor from them. All the schwirms captured were those that fell within their own territory. Only one was alive. The dead were "scanned" and then cut apart first for practice on the living one, who was first healed to the best of their ability and provided food and water. He was then strapped down and examined. The fleshsingers were artists at dissection, and the bugman lived for the entire procedure despite being cut open, with his guts and organs strung out along many rounded hooks. They were durable creatures, able to withstand pain, loss of blood, and survive horrific injury while retaining consciousness. It is quite possible that when "dead" they may still be alive for a while longer. The Flesh singers began the process of putting him back together, a different sort of task. ((roll to see survival of patient, whats left of the sanity of patient)). Combat tactics are still unrefiend with the conflict between the various castes.

The scout was found easily while it was resting. A large fight later, it was captured, and bound, also not an easy task due to how slimy the thing was.((as a note to nad: the male geists of the Shan Meer, while not brutes (at least yet), are larger then normal due to being "dominant" of their tunnel, with no competition, thus larger then a normal male, but not expressing brute morphology.))

Fa Kaath becomes heavily fortified with many rope and net walkways, the village now exists above ground, and is hidden with a heavy living canopy under and around it. Traps are not so well built, but basic drop nets are in place. Hunters and scouts now carry a net to throw on their enemies. Boats are somewhat leaky, but in this time of potential war, they are good enough to be used, if drained daily. The artisans make smaller coils that do the job and are easier for the brutes to throw, but many brutes prefer the larger coils as a display of strength, or simply to enjoy observing the carnage they cause. The wyvern riders patrol up to the southern border, but the arrows of the scwirm are a threat to their safety unless they fly very high, which is hard on the wyvern, and makes scouting harder with a lack of detail from the sonar at greater distances. The warsong grows in capability, at least against schwirm. The scouts are quite effective, learning the language of the schwirm tribe and causing general confusion. They learned that the military of the population was making a grab for power within the tribal system, and the attacks were reflective of it.

The lake is fed by an underground hotspring which makes it all plesantly warm and comfortable to soak in. Perhaps runuu can be put here? The Mud springs are discovered as a natural feature.

With shitloads of slaves and puruus for manual labour, Katumoiset can now really start to build great projects. First thing is the improving the city of Kaalimaa to make it more than pile of dirt and sticks. Also Road is built to the forest to make it easier for raiding partys to get there to raid nomads to find loot and more slaves. Slaves are also commanded to build moat around the city and after it is done it will be flooded with water from the sea to turn the city to an island.

The city improves in many ways, with mud giving way to stone and clay. The moat is dug, a little wider and deeper then expected, and it is flooded. The city is becoming a symbol of strength and dominance over the weak. As generations of selective breeding pass, the Katumoiset develop into two people. The physically larger and stronger Slavers, and the smaller weaker slaves. The slaves are more numerous, but are conditioned from birth to be subservient. Certain slaves are promoted to slave leaders who are better treated then the others and offered small luxuries to ensure loyalty. In exchange they will "crack the whip" figuratively and literally, tell their masters of planned insurrection, and more. Slave groups the preform well are fed better then those that do not. With this system in place the Katumoiset have turned the slaves against eachother as opposed to their masters, with each group trying to curry favor, and offer secrets of the others to the ruling class. ((selective breeding continues.))

The road workers were eaten by jungle geists ((mossmen)).

The General, as of yet, was unsure on where to go from here. All of a sudden, he had been told a bunch of idiot miners tried to make a tunnel underneath the plains, they found some new shining material, and apparently we caught one of the enemies prisioner. On one hand, he was considering simply forgetting about the riders of the north. They clearly didn't want interaction between us, and seemed content to make sure we didn't get within a kilometer of their cities. On the other hand, with the constant prodding through the territory that they had claimed to be theirs, they had very clearly had been pissed off, so constant protection was needed.

In the end, he decided that the matter could wait until after they had gotten information out of the new slimey prisoner.

He walked to the hut that had been chosen to keep the prisoner, and the first thing he noticed was the slime covering it's body. It writhed around it's body, as if it was a sepreate entity, and seemed to take whatever shape it pleased.

He then noticed just how big the creature was. How these things were on flying on the backs of the wyverns, he really had no idea. He approached the creature, unsure of what to say.

After a few moments of awkward silence, he spoke. "Now, this is probably a hopeless cause, since you probably can't tell what I'm saying any better than how I can tell what you're going to say back to me. But I'm going to try anyways." He took a deep breath.

The captured scout had a lot of options at his disposal at this exact moment. Provided he figures out the language, he could talk, but would it matter? Suicide? maybe. the emils would make it easy. Blaze of glory? could kill as many as possible until dead. Escape? the ropes were flimsy enough, with the emils slowly softening them to uselessness, but there were still guards. know some language. playing ignorant is always a choice. Diplomacy, or rolls for actions to the tune of your own imagination.

As the strange bugman walked around him and periodically got in his face, chirping and squeaking in their language the scout pondered what action he should take next.

And now the Log'Eads have an excuse to have "SKULLS FOR THE SKULL THRONE!" as their battlecry...

Meanwhile, the advisors were unsure of where to build the masterfully crafted idea before them. It was an amazing idea, yes, but a good idea wasn't worth shit if you couldn't exectute it. The engineers suggested to build it in the middle of the city, but it was far too large to build in such a full space.

Suddenly, the advisors either made the most idiotic decision ever, or perhaps they just grew a pair. Either way, they made a gamble. They would, at the edge of the wyvern's wind chimes, though they would probably have to move some, they would construct their fortress. The anger this would cause to their enemies was obvious, and so they planned to bring their militia to defend the site, though this would lessen the defenses in the cities. They send a messanger to the Log'Eads, asking for additional defense and/or extra workers to help build the fort.

And so, the Hoplites were mobilized, the archers were prepared, and the workers were readied. On the day of the half attack, half project, the soldiers were sent to clear out the area for construction, the workers and cruncha pack mules close behind.

The Lufae continue to improve their defenses when they don't need to deter the intruders away from their home. The conflict in the south has made deep marks in the mentality of especially the Fa Kaath villagers. They are far more militaristic and the mentality of the village towards the songless is much more callous than the majority of the tribe is. Ilith's theories about the songless are simply rejected by the Fa Kaath settlers, as to them, the songless represent the hated void. The Fa Kaath warriors believe that by intruding to their territory, breaking their chimes and attacking the Lufae the songless are trying to expand the great void forward.
The work on making the maze tunnels continues. The tunnels are dug underneath the forest growing along the river, their walls are reinforced with flowing stone. Some of the diggers get the idea of making great and wide tunnels that would connect the different settlements to each other. This project will take many years to be accomplished, but Khuna thinks that it is beneficial for the tribe in the long run, and thus the work on the long tunnels is started.
To prevent the invaders from breaking their wind chimes, the Fa Kaath warriors have begun placing them high in the trees.

The wyvern riders ask the artisans to come up with some way to protect the wyverns against the small sharp objects that the shwirms have started flinging against them. The artisans try to use what they have learned from the omaenii equipment to develop a light but protective armor for the wyverns.

The flesh singers try to sew the captive shwirm back together. They don't really care for the protests of their victim, only focusing on their work. It doesn't help that the singers are Fa Kaathian, and thus they don't really give any forth to the shwirm's pain. they do intend to keep the prisoner alive though.

Fali is impressed by the Altume hunting guild as they successfully bring down a Ripper Tyrant. It won't improve the food stores drastically, but it's still impressive. He returns to find that other projects have not been as successful.

This worries Hulys who has been counting the food reserves. This year they lost more than they produced. And they can only ride the initial surplus for so long. He orders Fali to step up. If Hulys has to shame Fali by asking his father Firil for food he will. Fali's saving grace is the Kirunna dung mix. Creating a large scale growing system would greatly food reserves.

Halin is quite surprised when giving his apprentice the Shadow Drink he falls dead for five hours. He got better, but Halin quickly realizes that he has made very dangerous and powerful substances. He shelves the project while he turns his attention to education. Currently his potions are produced and put into glass bottles for anyone to use.

If Edenites can learn some basic herbalism, then maybe they'll be more cautious using his potions. He petitions the rest of the council to provide education for children just hatching from their pupal stage. They would be taught the Iminye language with Halin's limericks.

Meanwhile at the Dream shrine, Vylona is pleased with her growing number of followers. Taking a parchment from her desk she writes up all their names. She also tries keeping count, when she realizes she can't. She remembers all their names but can't count them. It's frustrating and embarrassing. The door behind her opens and she hides her notes.

Halin walks in greeting her, "Hello Vylona, you have gathered many around you. Everyone I know 'walks the Dreaming,' but tell me you haven't actually shared our dreaming dust to outsiders."

"Of course not," her right hand slightly tremors. "I would not share the dream dust with the uninitiated. You however play with the Voice's gift like a would-be Kirunna rider. I am in complete control of this shrine and have held up the traditions-"

"But you have sacrificed for those traditions," Halin said interrupting "I see the tremor of your hands. All I'm asking is that you remind yourself and not force others to ignorantly pay the same price."

"Leave," she screams at him, "I will not be lectured in my own shrine." Halin left her. She turned back to her parchment and threw it away.

The next day as the sun rose, she was bucketing up some water. From down the path, a Dream Gesh waddled up staring blankly up and to the right. Vylona took her bucket. She had guided the tribe with the wisdom of the Voice. Even if she had lost part of her mind, it was a price she was willing to pay. Her followers depended on her to give their hard lives meaning in the Dreaming.

She would not disappoint. Vylona lays the bucket before the Dream Gesh and breathes in its intoxicating breath.

>Now on to the scout.

The Shan Meer scout allows the shiwmr to rant at him. He can't understand the words, but he now knows his voice, his words and his speech. They now belong to him. He remains silent, waiting for the shwirm leader to leave him into his prison.
When only the guards (presumably) remain, he begins to act. Firstly, he begins to subtly alter the composition of the emils symbiote, growing hard plates over the most vital parts of his body. He also gets the idea of trying to create sharpened plates on his arms, that could work as potential weapons. His plan is as follows.
Firstly, he begin to cause deep, low frequency rumbling in order to subtly scan the layout of the village around the hut in where he is imprisoned. He will also try to listen to the chatter of the guards, in order to learn more of the language of his captors. (phase 1)
Then, he will use his strength to break the bindings that the emils slime has already caused to weaken. Simultaneously, he will use his voice to stun the guards, and make his escape. He will try to use his superior speed, strength and agility to quickly scale the walls of the village, and escape to the woods. If necessary, he will try to confuse his pursuers by imitating their leader. He will execute the plan when the night falls. (Even the geists do have their internal clock.) (Phase 2).
He will then retreat to the forests, and try to locate his people in order to inform them of what he has learned. (Phase 3).

Alright, thanks for the info, my mistake then. We haven't mentioned Lovish and Kailarik in a while let's get back to them.

While exploring down the river on their journey to follow wherever the river goes (and map it out), the shwirm of the expedition realize that the temperature is getting warmer. As they continue, they find it neccesary to tear off the inner lining of their clothes. Later, they begin tearing at the sleeves, creating waistcoats of a sort. While nothing major has been discovered as of yet, Kailarik has been busy mapping the regions around the river banks on the several pieces of vellum. He's been having trouble keeping them all together. One of the crew has an idea, perhaps they could tie these maps together. Pages, basically.

Rolling for:
1) how far the group makes it down the river in a weeks time
2) rolling for what they discover while sailing down the river
3) inventing books by sewing the vellum into one whole. though no alphabet is formed, the shwirm *do* have access to a sort of heiroglyphics system (though it's not entirely standardized).

The Maze tunnels are completed, it takes geist like intuition and pre-knowledge to successful navigate them. They expand the lufae territory under the river. The great tunnel project hits a snag. Apparently the planed tunnel acrosses a large underground chasm. From the deep abyss, the diggers hear soft groans and feel an unbelievable heat venting from deep below. To continue working would bring the creatures of the abyss upon them.

The Geist are able to hide away most the wind chimes high in the trees. By their nature the songless can hear them. But it takes much longer to locate and dismantle.

Wyverm armor runs into some difficulties. The initial designs were rejected by the Wyverm for some reason.

The Shwirm lives to tell the horrible tale. But the experience leaves him shaken. The geist have taken some akin to his soul. He won't be able to live a normal life without reclaiming it by revenge or mediation.

The cooperation of the warriors improve. Some cross-gender bonds are developing. The males and alphas lose their ego and the females start trusting ground forces.

>As for the scout
The prisoner is able to learn the layout of the hut, but couldn't discern the layout of the village to escape. He gathers little from the guards mutterings. When he feels the time is right, he breaks his bindings and stuns the guards around himself. He escapes out of the hut's roof and better examines his surroundings.

The Shwirms have called a general alarm and are patrolling the village streets. It seems the prisoner miscalculated as the sun is just dawning. He is spotted. The Prisoner jumps from roof to roof before jumping the village walls.

After the walls night sets in the dark forest. It seems the shwirm won't give up. In the distance the prisoner hears the wind chimes, but the shwirm are between him and the path home.

During the last week, Lovish caught a parasite that gave him dysentery. Progress was slow since Lovish had to take time to recover. The shwirm sew the vellum into a folding map of the area. The idea of binding them together at a shared edge eludes them.

Down the river the Shwirm discover a grey big nosed Smasha. The River Smashas charges at the exploration party forcing them to travel around them in the forbidding forest. They hear the rustlings of branches all round them. Around bout of sickness forces them to make a temporary camp. The next day they can decide to continue or return.

The General had been the first to react when the wyvern rider had escaped into the woods. He wanted information from the beast, but having him somewhere in the woods was not going to help him get it. The shwirm were sent to surround the eastern side of the woods, as well as the northern area, blung be damned. When he sent the hoplites to do that, he then assigned another platoon to comb the forests for their target, and would be coming with them to see the capture personally.

Meanwhile, the advisors used the archers that had stayed behind to attempt to defend the fortress building site, sending whatever materials were needed and a little extra to construct the fortress as needed.

The diggers decide to mark the location of the abyss for future generations. They then decide that making the tunnel into one continuous pathway wasn't really necessary. Instead, the tunnel paths between the villages could be made from numerous smaller tunnels. These smaller tunnels could also work as temporary burrows for travelers and as locations in where to store material and so on.

The Wyvern riders understand the aversion their companions have towards the armor. It weights them down too much, alters their flight. The wyverns obviously dislike it. Because of this, the riders request that only minimal, extremely light armor should be made to protect the most vital parts of the wyvern. The riders realize that the proper response to the bows is speed and maneuverability. The riders begin to train to fly on their wyverns in complex and unpredictable patterns, as well as quick dodging. Some of them also believe that the wyverns could use their mighty songs to cause the arrows to be blows off course and away from the wyvern.

The Fa Kaath flesh singers begin to tend the shwirm, so that it could heal physically from the experience. They are planning on continuing their studies on the creature, once it has fully recovered. They also request that more shwirms are to be captured when a change arrives, so that they could learn more from the southern invaders.

With the founding of new villages, Elder Lupo has decided that their should be a leader in each. A leader loyal to Lupo, of course. These new leaders are to be chosen from the eldest members of each village, and the eldest among the village leaders is to be the new Eldest Leader.
Basically, it's like the Village Elders are Lords, and the Eldest Leader is the King. Basically.

The new village founded on the clay lake is north and west of the main village. It is called Udongo. It is lead by Elder Caesar. To the East of the main village ((Yetu Mahali)) is the village of Mrefumti. This dense copse of trees, headed by Elder Castor, makes a perfect spot for a tree house village, which is exactly what the Urupuruu set to work on. Finally, the third village of Mwepesi is located on the very edge of the chasm to the east. It is centered around a waterfall that descends into the abyss. Elder Kario is in charge in Mwepesi.

Askari Wakuu Brutos will maintain control of the militia, which will be housed at the main village. Brutos has made the decision to relinquish any position of Eldership that may have been offered, in order to advise the current Eldest Leader. Meanwhile, he continues to drill the military into a rounded out fighting force, now attempting to emulate the style of the stealthy Lufae with sneak attacks from up high, dropping out of trees to take advantage of the natural tendencies to not pay attention to what is lurking above.

More diplomats are sent by Eldest Leader Lupo to discover the fate of the missing puruu scout. The diplomat is sent south with an escort of purite drums and bells, as well as a few active militia members.

It was in the great tournament that united the tribes that they became leaders of this coalition of peoples, and it was after the battle of the blung that they were affirmed by their fellow chieftains as Grand Chiefs of the Nag Ber'Ek.

More warriors venture south, seeking excitement and battle against the Mossmen, but find none, the previous hunters having slain them all. The youths who ventured out to the forests refuse to accept this, and even set up a permanent camp, of about five dozen individuals, some even bringing their families with them. However, the new houses of cathedral plate used in the main settlement are not as easily built here, as the camp is too far from the plains for the plates to be brought easily. The new village tries to build houses of wood, from the surrounding forest.

Many of the supplies brought along in the pilgrims' journey were lost due to sand storms and animal attacks, afterall they were traveling from the great southern desert north into the deep grasslands. The Iminye clanless only had a short trek compared to the Altume pilgrims. Nonetheless the pilgrims easily pulled more than their own weight, hunting relentlessly, at a certain point the hunters had to slow down for fear of them exterminating the local wildlife. Well, to be perfectly honest it was more because the local wildlife was starting to adapt to the Eleni's pressence, and game was getting harder and harder to come by. To combat this the hunters start using different methods to catch them, sometimes leaving bait in the form of food scraps out to lure in the prey, some even try to create odd contraptions to catch prey. A large gabai mound is built for the Altume to respect their ancestors, but Dahmorg quickly finds that nearly the entire population of Altume pilgrims have been converted to the Iminye's religion. He is shocked and disgusted to the core, this is a very insult to Altume culture and honor. And he blames the Iminye just as much as the pilgrims. He finds Hulys and converses with him in a most serious and strong voice. "Whether intentional or not, I will not stand for this cultural attack." The Altume's ancestor shrine had not been constructed yet, and perhaps the populace converted out of desperation, but on such a large scale was beyond belief. "I will not allow for any Altume man or woman to be converted to an Iminye religion, we believe in no high power, and for any of us to believe otherwise is a grave insult to the chiefs. I think it would be best for both of our people to be segregated into halves of the city.

I'm sure if the chiefs were here they would be offended much more deeply, but I would like for Eden to be a success, and for that to happen the Iminye MUST respect the Altume, and by converting these pilgrims you have done the exact opposite." Afterwards the proposal of an education system is welcomed by the Altume councilmen, but the notion of them being taught the Iminye language alone only serves to further offend the Altume councilmen. As a counter offer Dahmorg proposes that the children be taught a hybrid language between the Altume and the Iminye. The apprentice chemists/scientists arrives from the mountain village, they are more masters than apprentices now though. Being the successors of Krogoan and Gogan. They set to work experimenting with local plants to create new beneficial concoctions. As afformentioned the builders set to work creating a sufficient gabai wall, two graveyards, a university, an arena, and a road to the lacorra fields. As a side project a road is being constructed that leads to the Altume Ocean Village. The military is trained relentlessly, the Iminye soldiers are much weaker than their Altume counterparts, living in a fertile grassland seems to make them soft and merciful. The soldiers are forced to sleep out in the wilds, they are given no comfort of a soft fur bed or an easy meal, this treatment would, with time, potentially harden the Iminye troops.

this a bit of out of character moderation, and perhaps im reacting early. But im going to cover this now. For everyone. You are not your tribes. They are your puppets. i expect a degree of personal investment, but also emotional detachment. If in game things are causing out of game problems, I will work to negate them. aggressively. If both you and Poe are able to moderate and enjoy a strife filled RP experience between two tribes trying to live together under cultural conflict. Go for it. it would be rich and interesting.

Lets look at the Altume, they are hardcore traditionalists, yet they innovate and discover a metric fuckton. no strife switching over from huts to concrete, or a new life style of fishing in place of hunting. The Iminye religon, as far as i know, has little to do with the dreaming. That is something their shamans practice, and is a set of rituals to enhance the mind, and discover the secrets of this world. Poe can correct me if i am wrong. One other thing here. Induce your culture. Eden is an experiment, and both tribes can consider the resources dumped into this city lost, and theirs at the same time. Teach the culture of hunting and discipline. Both players are free to make rolls and contribute towards the mutually owned object. I could imagine though that it could break down with one or the other leaving, and the town being stripped for resources. Failing that, well, I hear this part of the world exists on a continental shelf.

The numerous tunnels form a sort of broken highway/ storeroom/ between the villages. Though smart males often use it to secretly mate with females out of "sight" of brutes. The new armor chaffed at the wyverns and they will not wear it, which contributed to the evasion flight training going quite badly, with one rider falling off and needing to see the flesh singers. Even the geist are starting to view them as creepy, with how they isolate themselves from the rest of the tribe on occasion, and smell of fear pheromones from the songless. The wyverns can blow light projectiles off course, but not all of them. The schwirm is patched up ((see earlier post)), with the flesh singers having a mastery of the schwirm physiology.

new attempt at this. Angry, I am not attacking you, but i feel as if your personal feelings are bleeding over into the game. I wont tolerate it from any of my players. I explained myself to Oamnii, ill do the same courtesy to you. In some games people want to role play conflict, that is fine, but when it creates out of character problems, it is not. I feel that this is starting to become counter productive. When two tribes found a mutual settlement, they are forced to work together, with those at the settlement becoming of both, and neither the founding tribes. Traditions intermingle, as do beleifs. If your tribe is too traditional to be flexible, then they would have never agreed to this, if all they are going to do is view their new family as weak. Here is the part where i feel you were reacting out of character. No where, is it said that the Iminye worship the dreaming. It is a method of their sometimes batty shaman caste to comprehend and mediate on the world, and figure out bigger more philosophical ideas, or get insight from an induced heightened state of mind. The teaching of language was so that they could communicate easier between each other. If anything you can assume that the same thing is happening for them. Or role play and add it in that your added half of the settlement is also contributing to education, and learning. long story short, I see you reacting harshly to a big gift.

With all that said, I dont care if its in character or not, i really dont want to deal with a "lawful stupid" situation. If the tribes cant work together, and the players cant, you are both free to take your resources and tribals, and call it a failed experiment. You can also work it out with cooperative, constructive teamwork, and sharing of culture to make an "eden" a hybrid society that is neither of the original tribes, but something more, taking the best of both worlds. Failing that, I hear Eden exists on a continental shelf, and i can solve the problem.

With reports of strange demons crawling up from the chasm at Mwepesi, the militia has been called to action. While Askari Wakuu Brutos remains behind in Yetu Mahali, the majority of the militia ((now under the command of a capable puruu named Nguni)) has relocated. The militia is under orders to remain in Mwepesi until either the last demon is rejected, or the last puruu has died. Back in Yetu Mahali, Brutos is attempting to raise another militia.

Elder Kario of Mwepesi has decided to send a guarded team of explorers down into the chasm, in order to see if they can find a source for these demon attack, and seal them off.

Elder Castor of Mrefumti would like to ease travel between the tree houses that make up the village. In order to do so, numerous walkways are being built over existing branches. These walkways are basically just pieces of wood cut into boards, laid over top of spots where branches intersect.

Elder Caesar of Udongo ((who was the earlier council member that tried to develop writing)) has decided to use the clay from the clay lake in his new attempts at writing. It becomes mandatory for all puruu of Udongo to know the written language, to write their personal histories and beliefs, and to read the histories and beliefs of other puruu.

Eldest Leader Lupo has decided that the Yetu Mahali, is still a tad bit too isolated from it's sister. In order to remedy this situation, Lupo demands the clearing of great paths to the other village. Trees shall be chopped down, grass shall be dug up, until all that is left is a hard packed dirt path.

The battle of mwepesi has been going badly, the town is nothing more then a series of low walls and trenches, with the puruu fighting a hard bitten battle against strange aggressors. Brutos is raising a new militia with eager new recruits, it is a point of tribal pride. They are not full time soldiers, but they are more then happy to pick up and defend their home. the explorers crawl into the chasm, and find the source of the onslaught, it is a fissure deep down letting some of the worst creatures the caverns has to offer creep up and terrorize the new settlement. As the scale the walls back to the surface, over half the team is killed by horrible flying monsters, the rest escape. the walkways are unsecured, and many puruu fall to their death, or injury on the ground below. SO IT WAS COMMANDED, SO THE UDONGO DID LEARN! and that eagerness spread to all the other villages. your tribe is now 100% literate, with education starting at a young age. ((permanent bonus to development rolls)) Two roads are built quickly, and are excellent, the third road going to the embattled village of mwepesi is not built at all.

one puruu thinks that the chaism could be sealed if they could flood it with mud, another thinks to ask the geist near the village for help, ((wyvern rider encampment)), while yet another suggest to throw wood and garbage into the chasm and then dump burning embers into the pile and kill them all with fire!!! The last puruu scares everyone a little.

The Urupuruu are a determined tribe. They do not believe in the impossible. When it comes to the village elder meeting on the fate of Mwepesi, whether or not it should be abandoned, all of the elders agree that they should fight to keep the village. A small team of three scouts is sent south along the chasm, looking for the Lufae outpost that the elders believe is there. Their mission is to contact the Lufae and beg for any assistance they can get.

The idea of flooding the bottom of the chasm with mud is appealing, but everyone realizes that it would be only a temporary plug. The idea of throwing in wood and trash and lighting a great fire.. it appeals to people. Especially Elder Kario, who has seen firsthand what these monsters of the deep are capable of. Orders have been given to all the puruu currently defending Mwepesi that anything that can burn, will burn. All flammable materials are to be thrown into the fissure at the bottom of the chasm.

A small group of the artisans have started a new project that aims to improve the wyvern masks further, so that the masks would amplify the "shielding song" to a degree that the song would provide the wyvern with a "barrier" of sound that would deter light projectiles even better.

The new building will be a great structure of stone. But how to get to the stone? Piling rocks is not enough. The rocks will have to be cut into bricks, and the bricks sealed with clay and mud. But up to this point, the Puruu have never witnessed anything carve stone in the way that they need.

Khuna is worried about the Shwirm activity, and thus he orders many scouts to monitor the shwirms from a distance during nights, with the help of the riders. He aims to be aware of any threatening activity when it begins. He also tells the artisans to develop smaller communication horns that the warriors could communicate over long distances even when they are on missions.

The Shan Meer scout could just outrun the shwirms, but he knows that if he beams directly towards the chimes of his kin, the Lufae as a whole would be compromised.

Now the plan was simple. The Hoplites were naturally charging the prisoner into the plains, and just to the right of where they were herding him to lie the archers of the shwirm, or 60 of them to be exact. These shwirm would help lead the scout to the assumed area where the beast's city was, and the archers would then fall in behind the massed charge of 128 hoplites. They would follow the beast hopefully all the way back to the tribe, where they would try to comminucate with the beasts, but if they all too likely didn't talk sense, they would burn the city down to end the wyvern menace, and the shwirm would be able to more easily explore the plains without being ripped to shreds. However, if the scout managed to escape or started heading north, they would simply continue charging to the mountains, where they had guess earlier to be where the wyverns were coming from.

Back at the farming village, shwirm were experimenting with ways to use the strange shining material. After finding they could melt it with enough heat, they make a small tube on the bottom side of a stone vial, where they placed the metal ore into, that leads to a small rectangular box with the top cut off. The stone vial is placed over a fire, and the shwirm eagerly wait for the molten ooze to come out of the tube and into the box.

Scouts in the south village had been sent to scout out the area to the east of the main village, further than the area that had been covered before.

Hell, the hills basically have a maze of tunnels running underneath them. Only the geists can properly navigate these mazes as they have extremely developed spatial memory, as well as sonar that can reveal the true pathways.

So in short, the shwirms won't find a village with walls and huts, instead they will find swathes of hills, with countless hidden openings that lead to the mazes of tunnels running underneath the ground. The only signs of the geists are the wind chimes planted on these hills. This is the territory of the Lufae. This is their home soil. The terrain plays to the strenghts of the geists very well, as the Lufae have been preparing for intrusions for some time now.

The shwirm had expected a fight. At the sight of their push, the wyverns had simply fled, or they knew they wouldn't handle the volleys of arrows the archers would dish out on them.

It was dusk when they reached the hills and found... nothing. No huts, no tents, and hardly any footprints at all. Just more of those fucking chimes placed everywhere. The general took one out of the ground and tossed it to a nearby soldier.

General: Gather a few of those up for when we get back. Maybe the scientists can make a use out of it. The rest of you, set up camp for the night. There's nothing of value here.

The soldiers took their shovels and began to dig foxholes in which to sleep in, and the General sent some soldiers to see if there was anything around here, for the idea of nothing where the wyverns had clearly been gaurding something was simply too unbelievable to him.

From the written scribes

Halin speaks:

"First off, I would like to praise the Altume pilgrims for their successful efforts in Eden. The apprentices your people had were gifted in knowledge and technique. They quickly grasp my methods and revealed desert herbs I never knew of. The future of Eden herbalism is bright.

"I'm confused by the Construction of the South road since we have a harbor that constantly ferries people back and forth to the Altume Village. But it matters not since other projects have been so successful. Truly you have used the best of gabai and tree shaping methods.

"As far as this 'cultural attack' is concerned. Nobody is disrespecting you or your culture. Nothing excludes the pilgrims from honoring their ancestors and walking the Dreaming. I talk to the Dream Priestess every day. She is just as surprised that many pilgrims have started coming to the shrine.

"You know the one thing the Altume followers ask? If they could bring their ancestors into the dreamtime and respect them at the Dreaming shrine. She was hesitant because she was sensitive to this very concern. I know that she would invite the gabai shrine next to the Dreaming shrine. She would even go so far as to invite one of the Altume to make a distinct clan for these pilgrims. The clan making ritual is a great honor and hasn't been perform for generations.

"As for the new education system, how can you really say that only the Iminye writing will be taught since it is in fact the base of your own writing? You borrowed it and adapted it for yourself. We had no problem with it. The reason I put forth Iminye writing is because the Halin Limericks are written in it.

Isemir speaks:

"I, Isemir, am training and being trained under Drogol. Right now we are not ready. If the land stealing demons came today, we would all be consumed. The Iminye follow the same training as the Altume but they still call us weak and will not allow us practice. They waste our strength and breed resentment. We do not have a cohesive fighting force."

Hulys speaks:

"Thank you. We do nothing to insult you, Dahmorg, yet you ignore your own disrespect. If you really run back to your Chiefs to settle honor, we question if you are really strong. Do not let inflexible tradition bankrupt the future of your children. They will truly be something different than our relatives back in the Sehquestas forest.

"Right now, my own child is waiting to be reborn from his pupa. He will change the world. You know how I know? Because when he was born the ground shook under his mother. He was truly an Earthshaking Grub. I am grateful to actually see this day. I understand how important Eden is to my new son.

"We are willing to compensate but not segregate. Segregation right now makes both of us weaker and Eden will fail. Think about relocating your shrine so that these pilgrims can respect their ancestors. It's easy enough to teach both languages in this new education system. We would even go so far as to enforce signs to be printed in both languages around town. But you must reform your own training methods less our defenses are compromised even more."

(in short, no segregation, combine the shrines, teach both languages, you got to stop fluffing the Iminye as weak. And what Nongent said. I'm just trying to build up Eden to be a cultural center, and keep it fed. I need for you to build up its protectors. If I know anything, bigger hazards are on the horizon to test Eden.)

The Geist are able to convince the Wyrems to wear the light padded armor. The armor however is untested. And there are still doubts they aren't better off without it. They Wyrems without perform aerobatics much easier.

The gains of the new research are small. Considering that the team works on several projects at once. The masks weren't their priority.

The riders discover diving and looping techniques to confuse archers trying to get a bead on them.

The experiment goes poorly. The Prosthetic is rejected by the arm and has to be cut off. Though there is still another arm they can experiment with.

The scouts are able to discern the major settlements and campments of the shwirm, but they can't detail the smaller moving groups in the region.

The hoplites fall behind the prisoner. They move in a group whereas the geist is alone and can move much faster than an average shwirm. They are also slowed down by combining the archers which catch up with them.

The combined force charged into the Lufae territory determined to root out the source of the Wyrem. They find rolling hills filled with echoing wind chimes, but no village or fort.

They decide to dig into the ground hoping to discover an underground store or bunker. The work is long and seems fruitless. Just as they were about to pack up camp. The skys became filled with wyrems and their spears.

Suddenly, in the middle of the night, dozens of howling coils strike the ground around the camp, forming a barrier of wriggling spikes. The resulting blast disorientates the shwirms.

From under the Generals tent bursts Geist soldiers. They blast their own disorienting song incapacitating the shwirms further. The majority of them suffer a maddening cage of noise. From the hole comes, a stronger bigger Geist dwarfing the others. It speaks in the General's voice.

Khuna approaches the intruding shwirms while the war chant disorientates them. He has had just about enough of these songless aggressors, but he doesn't want to kill them just yet. They are better be left alive, so that they will deliver his message the their comrades. If he were to just order their slaughter, more and more of them would just try to breach the Lufae territories.

The Shan Meer scout had arrived some time earlier, trough the tunnel highway that connected the villages. He had told Khuna what he had learned, most importantly, he had acquired the voice of the presumed leader of these bugmen.
Khuna had quickly learned to imitate this voice, and he had learned the basics of the Oamenii language form the other scout team. As he walks closer to the shwirms, he begins to speak using the voice of the general.

"What drives you here songless? You destroy the song chimes, wither the world song and trespass in the sacred land of She who Sang out the World. What is the burning in your hearts that drives you to come to our lands? You have broken our rules, violated our lands, disrupted our song. You are unwanted here. There exists nothing but death for you here, if you choose to pursue this path.
You will leave our borders after two dawns. Tear down the hill of wood you created to watch on us. If you comply, the servants of the Great Singer will not pursue you nor your descendants, as long as they keep to this pact. You will not trespass to the song scape of the Lufae.
Our secrets are ours to keep."

He ends his speech with a deep, rumbling roar, which causes the coils to shatter as the stone bindings keeping the two branches together breaks from the vibration. Using this bang as a cover, the Lufae disappear back into their tunnels. The wyvern riders however keep monitoring the shwirms from high above in the night sky.

The General had just about to enter his tent when the camp became hell on primoridal. The sky erupted with wyverns that rained death upon the battalion, slaughtering dozens at a time with their spears, most shwirmk dying without every waking. The General brought his tower shield and spear to bear as the ground erupted in front of him, and nearly fainted at the ensuing screams. He kept his footing, however, and got to see a giant of shining black muscle and sinew emerge from the hole that had erupted from his tent. He screamed out a challange to the beast, who was clearly the leader, and took his position.

Across the killing field, most thwe the shwirm were either dead or whimpering in the fetal position, unwilling to accept the slaughter before their eyes as real. Others saw their doom and simply fought harder, swinging their swords and absorbing hits like creatures possessed. Then there were the 2%. The psycopaths of the militia, who laughed and giggled in glee at the slaughter before them, ignoring their wounds and simply cutting down whatever geist dared appose them. They were determined to put up a fight, no matter how vein.

He saw his general take his stand, and so many others. Shwirm laid on the ground, either dead or dying, having taken part in what they thought would be an easy battle. He knew they had no chance of winning, and that with most of their military now dead, the villagers needed to prepare for counterattack, for he was certain their enemies would try to take advantage of this situation. He turned and ran. he ran faster than any other shwirm had ran before, haing lost all sense of self-preservation after the near death from a mossman and all sense of emotion from the slaughter before him.

Tension is starting to rise in Staatgreich. Younger families are starting to see older more powerful families as danger to all as they have too much power compared to others. Leaders of older families don't even try to deny that they have much power because their oppinion is that the power they have belongs to them as their families are oldest and largest.

In eastern town shwirms have tradition to bury the dead. Now that the town is getting large they need specialized area for this purpose. Graveyard is built outside the city and one of the older families wants to honor their ancestors by building a great mausoleum.

Hunters failure against mossmen brings the idea of improving the tactics of hunters. As jungle geists (Mossmen) are stealthy and use hit and run tactics the shwirm have now idea of close formation that uses wall of weapons as defence. In order to make it useable they will need weapons better suited for fighting style like that.

The general had heard these words from the creature, looked upon the death and destruction that they had sown on the camp, and could only nod in compliance to no one in particuler. These had been trained soldiers of war, armed to the teeth and ready to kill, and yet they slaughtered them like lambs. He shuddered at the thought of such an attack being carried out on one of the villages, and he had decided on what to do in his mind.

He knew this pact would by no means permanent. One day, a shwirm would look upon the slaughter rained down this day and demand retribution, or one of these lufae would claim that this slaughter was not punishment enough, and drive their armies into our lands.

But today, and at least this generation, the Oamenii and the Lufae would have a truce. He gathered what shwirm were still alive, Old One Eye thankfully among them, did what they could for the wounds they all doubtlessly had, and after having a silent breakfast and burying their dead, they left the hills and began their solomn march back to the Oamenii city.

Well NG, I gotta' say I kinda' felt like shit after coming back from a hiatus to find that nearly every pilgrim has been converted to another tribes shrine, I was under the assumption that the Iminye pilgrims would follow their own religion (whatever it is) and the Altume would follow their own religion, not that every elen would suddenly start walking the dream. That's forceful, when I thought the culture would converge slowly and naturally. Perhaps i'm just angry that I wasn't told about this, even if I was away for awhile he could've waited. Poe was being rather pushy during the town charter and made it hard for me to have a say in what te town was going to be like, then again maybe i'm just being an insufferable dick. By the way Poe, maybe I didn't make it clear in my writing but the intention was for both the Altume soldiers and the Iminye soldiers to train and survive in the wilderness together. And yes when individually compared to Altume soldiers the Iminye will always appear weaker, mainly because the Altume have been living in a harsh desert where there are nothing but wild meat eating monsters, when the Iminye live in a fertile land where there isn't as much danger. It has nothing to do with whether the Iminye work well as a fighting force, the idea was for he Iminye soldiers to get used to living life on the brink of death, therefore making them mentally and physically stronger than if they were to just train inside the safety of the town.

Mwepesi defense goes well, an the brave little puruus hold the line against the monsters of the fissure. The Lufae outpost is somewhere nearby, but the puruu cannot seem to find it. The amount of flammable material thrown into the fissure is not enough, and more is needed before the fire will start. Several puruus are killed in a mining accident, but their bodies are salvaged for the runuu pool. The vine swings are also dangerous, and many puruu fall, and require healing.

The female shaman elder who set up camp nearby to study the puruu as insight into the songless can see them searching for her, and the wyvern riders are acutely aware of their plight as they have continued to scout while observing the tribe.

The emils armor of the Shan Meer has caught the "eyes" of few of the artisans working on the wyvern armor project. The emils armor has quite peculiar properties, that could make it very useful for the wyverns. The problem is that the emils symbiote only acts the way it does with geists. Creatures who lack the slimy skin, such as the wyverns just get their skin melted off by the emils.
Because of this, the artisans, with the help of the Shan Meer, have begun trying to develop ways of utilizing the armor on non Shan Meers.
I'll explain some of the properties of the emils armor now.

The emils slime itself is a gelatinous organism that is composed of countless of amoeba like semi cells, that can both merge with each other to form bigger "cells" and split of to move freely. The movements of these "cells" and trough them the whole emils is based on fluid movements that occur in the numerous interconnected vacuoles inside each individual "cell". These vacuoles of all the countless "cells" form an ever changing hydraulic network inside the emils slime, that allows it to move around.
The harder emils armor bits are made from emils "cells" that have entered a state of hibernation. They clamp up on each other, and develop quite resilient "shell" over themselves. The armor is quite durable, but also very flexible. The "cells" can switch between the hibernation and normal activity extremely fast. A shell plating capable of covering an entire geist can form in a matter of few minutes, depending on the skill of the Shan Meer at exploiting the emils slime.

The artisans are trying to figure out how to grow this armor, without having to rip it off from the Shan Meers. With the aid of the Shan Meers, they have started experimenting on ways of getting the emils pools produce this flexible, lightweight and extremely durable, almost plastic like armor. Few of them are attempting to simply trying to make small identical plates that could be woven together, some of the artisans try to use a frame made from shwirm bones to work as a mold for bigger plates and few of the stubborn Shan Meer simply try to force the slime in the pools to form into a desired shape by sitting in the pool and trying to control it as a whole, like they control their own slime.

Aith tries to familiarize more with the Korobuskha emissaries in the Lupai Kaath village. The settlers have warmed up enough to the mountain shwirms, so that she can give the emissaries a quick tour of the village. The canyon where the village is located has very little game, and thus many of the settlers have started trying to use their nets for fishing.
Meanwhile, Kun Kaath has grown into a hub of the artisans, as during the conflict with the Oamenii, many of the artisans moved to the village for increased security. There, they were able to get more resources and privacy on their projects that would eventually benefit the whole tribe.

I couldn't help myself.
That is what I just kept imagining the shrine to look like.
The idea I have for it is basically that the structure "traps" the winds and sounds echoing from the valley, and then channels them into countless of holes and pipes that have been carved into the twisting pillars. The wind would then emerge from the top of the structure, as a great and harmonious tune, that could be "seen" like a beacon across the mountains by the geists.

Also, here is something that folks came up with in the irc.
Have some appropriate music too:

The battlefield was full of the dead, both sides, and this was fortuitous for the flesh singers, who had up until recently had little opportunity to work on the Geist population. Excitement. A handful of schwirm are "resurrected" or revived as they were very close to death, but not truely there yet. They first subject is...repaired, enhanced even. Cut to ribbons, and rebuilt with extra muscle, redundant organs, and a replacement arm. Nerves and blood vessels are lovingly grafted into place. This...was art...beautiful, perfect. A precursor for what was yet to come. In time perhaps but a simple scribble, compared to the masterwork of an enhanced geist. Thun is old, but the older alphas still respect him, as do the scouts who were allowed to live a better life because of him. The Flesh singers were caught in the act of study on live schwirm, most shockingly to thun was that they were cut to ribbons, but still alive, like a collage of living organs tied together by wet pulsating string. Their bones and muscles flayed and separated but still connected to the whole. next to them were the bodies of dead geist, or part of them. The Flesh singers had been studying what makes a brute a brute in large detail.
----
Compact horns are developed, and the border patrol fails miserably, with anarchy breaking out due to the continuing celibrations, followed by a power struggle between the new alphas of the villages, the brutes, and the various castes.

derp. but they are now trying to make him better, perhaps the best, but dont worry, your tribe has no idea of any of this. Consider these ones lost for now. they were already dead, the flesh singers just saved them...sorta.
((Nad, how thun reacts to this, or the singers is up to you. They are trying to accomplish something very grand, but their methods may be considered horrific. Thun at the same time may not care, and choose to not tell khuna, but the same cannot be said for his subordinates. Ill be very curious to see how you choose to play this out.))

A downside to this armor is that one ready, it is the emils are dead. Self repair, or modification is impossible, but the durability, and flexible quality remains. The most functional method is generating many small plates and hand weaving them. A few more agressive artisans form large sheets of plate, and cut them to shape while it is still "alive", but this method is not as efficent as the first. Finally, the Shan Meer can expertly create complex, beautiful shapes, but they must maintain them, out of the pool, until the symbiote hardens into its final shape and starts to die, which can take several days. It is a very inefficent process, but without a doubt, producing some of the most fluid, ergonomic results. Fishing nets are simply modified war nets, which are easily put to use catching food. The workshops of Kun Kaath churn with new ideas and experiments. The large pools themselves are made from flowing stone, hardened into a shallow bowl, and it is a functional concept.

Honestly, I'd rather live in the afterlife than be used in the experiments of madmen. And there's a thing called the uncanny valley. Where it's ALMOST like your species, but something just feels... off. And it's quite tucking disturbing, thank you very much. I understand it wouldn't be "HOLYSHIT WHAT THE FUCK DID THEY DO TO YOU?!?", but it'll still be like "Dude, you SURE you're alright? You seem sick..."

The stripped fort and materials cause the villages to nearly double in size, making room for new families, and new ideas. The buildings are made of more durable materials that were once meant for a fortification. The first gear system is made, it is just a proof of concept in the form of two wooden wheels with notched teeth cut out, and just to spin. It does this for a few minutes, until it breaks. The onlookers of the experiment are not too impressed, but the inventor, oh...he knows that he just created something to change the world. The new prosthetics are rather refined for a first attempt, featuring a metal and leather construction, they are sometimes even controllable by the nubs that can still move on the amputated limbs. Metal claws, and metal peg legs. ((once gears kick in...clockwork schwirms anyone?)) Schwirmite tools replace traditional stone, bone, and wood tools. Life and work gets a little easier for the tribe. The new armor is a very difficult thing to craft from the metal, and instead existing armor is simply upgraded a bit, with metal rivets, nails, and clasps replacing larger, heavier parts. Scouts have explored areas away from the lufae territory, and found on the open plains a massive variety of wild life, with abundant meat to hunt. It is unlikely food will be a problem for many generations, and leather, bone, hide, etc, while starting to become outdated in some applications, is quite plentiful and easy to work with. Of note there is a large population of cathedrals the Nag. may way to know about. They will either want them, or aid your tribe in capturing and domesticating them. Either way, their shedding plats are an excellent building material, of which there are many to be found.

The scout has escaped quite far, but was intercepted by a brutes on patrol. He is surprised at the lone puruu, more confused as to why it is alone and unescorted in the Lufae territory. He will take it to the village alpha for investigation/ brief interrogation. It seems more then content to cling closely to him, terrified out of its wits. The village alpha is the same alpha of the flesh singers in question. Does the alpha know? lets find out!

A few of the schwirms want to do more then watch, they want to fight! FIGHT FIGHT! There are clam logeadz that wish to just learn how to make a good brew, and schwirm who want to start their own skull collections. I suspect a cultural exchange, and perhaps sort of Embassy might be set up in one, or all of the villages of the respected tribes. What the embassy functions as is up to you, but preferably something to contribute in a helpful way to their host village. ((if embassies are established, it is assumed that a player can close them down, and recall their forces home, but otherwise, the host player can use them in their rolls, and effots, but not to a point of ordering them to do something. It would be assumed that the Embassy dwellers wish to be good ambassadors of their people, and are naturally helpful and driven to aid their allies in their efforts. beer making embassy. glorious))

Sorry to disapoint, but the tournament was held in the north before the Nag Ber'Ek moved to their current location.

Dosen't mean they can't watch the fights that occur almost daily in the main settlement.


I realised my settlements have no names, so, the main settlement I now dub Nag Palka, or "Great Camp," while the south village is Nek Palka "Little Camp."


The people in Nek Palka forcibly assimilate the remaining log'eadz of the forest into their village, making them do menial jobs like cleaning up excrement, and do other crap jobs.

A youth in Nel Palka tries to bind his loincloth back together after it's been ripped, but can find no animal sinew throughtout the camp. Desperate, he tries a hexis vine. Do the other tribe members get an idea from this?

Eno and Dlo send women to the Oamenii settlement, to learn how to brew, and to ensure good faith between the Oamenii and the Nag Ber'Ek. The women sent are chosen because of their calm natures, thought they're still a little aggressive. However, most of the matronly women reamain in Nag Palka, and soon form a group "The Sisters of " The leading members are mostly those who can no longer bear child, and have become dedicated to protecting the lives of the children, and thus the future of the Nag Ber'Ek. They ask the Chieftains for armor, axes and clubs, so that in times of strife they might serve as a last line of defense for the tribe.

New scouts venture forth, this time without the heavy plate armor, and try to infiltrate the lands of the Lufae, bringing with them food and beer as peace offerings if they're caught

Dahmorg accepts Hulys terms, and orders the construction of a temple of sorts where dream walking and ancestral honoring can be performed. Dahmorg explains that the road was being built in case of sea troubles, and will only be used in case of emergencies. Both the Iminye troops and the Altume troops continue to train and survive in the wilderness, the Altume soldiers try to teach the Iminye men basic survival skills that would come in handy if the army needed to march a long way. The builders try to construct a school, the facility will be even grander than the university, it will be made up of gabai walls and columns and the floors and roof panels made with tree shaping methods. While the school is under construction the apprentice alchemists try to teach the younglings how to mix ingredients to create tonics and potions, more particulary how to create different varieties of health drink. A represenative of the hunting guild from the mountain village requests that he and his co-workers be allowed to build a hunting guild here, in return for respect and wealth they will provide leathers and meat at a much more steady rate than the current hunters. Dahmorg is cautious when dealing with the represenative, he's heard stories of home that describe the hunting guild becoming an influencial organization. He holds a meeting with Hulys to debate how they should deal with the hunting guild.

"They may not know the landscape well and may be useless for the first few months, but I know firsthand that they are skilled hunters, perhaps even more skilled than our own. They are picky about their members you see. I don't particulary like the idea of an independent group of men living within our walls without contributing selflessly."

With the sudden demand for metal tools and weapons, The general, now more widely known as the governer, decrees that the research outpost and the trade depot were to also begin a mine, with the hope that they would have a source of shwirmite underneath.

He is also interested in the gear made by the shwirm engineer, and requested he make more, giving him some lumber to work with.

The blacksmiths, with their new, harder material, decide to come up with a new sword, for the 'sharpened club's approach was no longer optimal.

Traders at the depot begin tobarter with the metal tools and weapons made by the blacksmiths, which caught quite a many curious eye from the Log'Eads and allowed the traders to get quite good deals in roasted food and cathedral plates.

Down below, in the shwirmite mines, the miners discovered something quite peculiar. One of the miners had run into a tunnel that had quite obviously had not been dug by the shwirm, with completely different tools and no light source to speak of. There wasn't even any sign of. The Lufae wind chimes, which the creatures had been quite happy to use to mark everything that was theirs. The miners decided to inform the governer, leaving a hoplite armed with the new shwirmite weapons and Armor.

The prosthetics created by the eningeers continued to be improved on, the engineers determined to get the closest they could to the real thing.

Meanwhile, the scouts come back and inform the governed of what they discovered. After thinking this through, he sent a messanger to the Log'Eads detailing what they had found, specifying they had also found a cathedral herd as well.

The embassies were met with open arms, and the brewers were more than happy to share their techniques with them. They also begin to experiment new types of beer, from vodka to whiskey to rum, and even wine was tried.

Under the trade depot, a big natural cave was found. Its walls are glittering with shwirmite, along with natural crystal formations which softly glow green.
Gears were invented, at first people thought it was a wheel with more traction, but the inventor knows its true possibility. Designs upon designs fling themselves at his mind.
The sword-maker, in his haste to produce swords, made them too thin; end result is a floppy sword that can't cut anything and is too brittle.
Prosthetics were given braces to stabilize them, but nothing else yet.

After facepalms were exchanged all around, the useless 'swords' were melted down and attempts to make the gladuises restarted.

With the new gears, the engineers began to add gears to the shoulder, elbow, wrist, and appendages of the prosthetic limbs. Experiments are also made to create a tool that would allow for the sharpening of weapons.
