Welcome /tg/ to a new Quest. A quest of adventure, of development, of demonic animals that may one day rule the primitive the continent where they are current located. The continent is locked by the large oceans largely unexplored and unknown if it is now a Pangaea, or a small continent on it's own. But the land is different from other places in the little blue marble where these creatures sit. The natural magic flows through the stones and crystals jut out of the earth at the most focused points glowing different colors. Creatures exposed to the crystals have started to change in size, intelligence, and power. The magical energies mutating them to the point of making them want to change and have their lives be more than hunt, run, breed.But...what beasts will you take under the wings and lead them onto a world of innovation, of prosperity, and maybe even of War.What creatures will you pick though?1: Fire Lizards: Low Population start. Longer Lifespan. Prone to Aggression. Natural Fire Resistance and slight fire bending capability.Starting Body Size: Medium.2: Lighting Cats: Normal Starting population. High Birth rate. Prone to infighting.

Hope you all somewhat remember how I function.
>>23963291Of course any are welcome to suggest a unique race.
>>23963291I'd go with the Stone Wolves because they have no real downside.
>>23963884Last time we did stone wolves.They had amazing luck and almost were destroyed by a gigantic dragon.
>>23963919But that's one for Stone Wolves.
Anymore votes folks?
Civilization thread? Okay then, one more for Stone Wolves here. Though, admittedly, the cats look interesting.
I think we should be ants.
>>23964349What kind of Ants?2 for Stone Wolves. One more will lock us in.
>>23963919Oh I remember those threads. It was kind of awesome. The clan had almost-deer cavalry, a dragon whelp and alliance with fire lizards.
Any specific variant?
>>23964368That is correct my friend.We'll start out in a more unique sort of setting. Either near a canyon in some plains or mountains.
>Fire LizardsEh, alright, but lemme see what->Lightning c-LIGHTNING!!!! BE THE LIGHTNING!! WHATEVER THEY ARE!!
How do you mark messages? I refer to the >> thing.
>>23964410Click on the message's number (the numbers after the 'No.')
>>23964410Click the numbers after No.That's...2 for Wolves.2 For Cats1 for some sort of Ant things.
Stone wolf sues are boring, let's be the lightning cats.
>>23964430Ah, thank you.Also going to put a 1 at the front of my name to prevent any potential confusion.
>>23964430>>23964442Thanks to you folks as well.
>>23964454do ## after your name then some numbers or something. Then it'll be a unique system.
>>23964478Don't use a trip or a name unless you're doing something that requires it.It's bad form.
How critical is a crit success/fail?Reality warping, or just done really well/poorly?
>>23964490This.I appreciate your eagerness Newfag, but assuming a trip is only for srs bns like you're storytiming or GMing. Otherwise you look like a dick.
On the great plains, there were few things that hid from the suns rays. But, in few places where water came from the ground and the tree sprouted around it. Rested great beasts. Congregating together to survive and live. These were the felines of lighting, their skills were like those of the thunderous storms of the plains. Which plagued the lands with lightning and thunder from the sky. Few around them can boast that they have learned much except to make their natural claws shock their prey as they tackle them to the ground.They have little around their homes and live near a large watering hole. They either live in the trees around them or under them for safety from the sun. Now that many have come together, they've decided to work to make their lives better for their kin and children who will come. But what will they do first?A: Work on their Natural Affinities.B: Work on Technology.C: Work on collecting a food supply.D: Explore the surrounding plains.
>>23964490>>23964531Eh, just wanted to avoid confusion or accusations of samefagging, but as the name implies, I am new here. Consider your advice taken.
>>23964531That's true. Was just telling him how to do it is all folks. Sorry 'bout that.>>23964526Last time...We had a child kill a dragon becoming sort of a mini-avatar for about...2 minutes. Then we possibly had a failure that wiped out half the tribe while fucking with a magical crystal.
>>23964570[B] I'd recommend building a food supply first. I just hope it doesn't rot or something
>>23964616I'll need a roll for this of a D100 if that's cool with all.
>>23964669Think I'll wait a little for everyone else's opinion.
Rolled 90>>23964669Food supply works for me. Gotta eat.
dice+1d100I'm for building a food supply.
>>23964722It seems that, while resting in the trees they find that many bear strange fruits. They eat them whole and find that they are rather tasty. More and more trees are found and the fruit collected in large piles.A: Work on their Natural Affinities.B: Work on Technology.C: Work on collecting a food supply.D: Explore the surrounding plains.Food Stores- Alright. Turns till new Children: 4
Rolled 59>>23964777B. Develop farming. We'll grow some orchards.
Rolled 22D: Explore the surrounding plains
Is there a limit to the number of "actions" taken per turn?
>>23964834I'll say after one more action I'll give you two actions per turn.1 Turn is roughly a week.What'll be your next action?
>>23964834Meant to say *What's the limit*.
>>23964790As they spit a few seeds into the ground, a few days later they do see a few small plants growing. So they simply continue.A: Work on their Natural Affinities.B: Work on Technology.C: Work on collecting a food supply.D: Explore the surrounding plains.Food Stores- AlrightTurns till new Children.2 Actions folks.

Rolled 89>>23964895A: Work on their Natural Affinities
>>23964911What if I told you...You basically are on your way to naturally becoming so? But the fighting might become Drow level between families.
>>23964911SO...1 vote for B1 for C1 for A.Will use the 89 for the first thing anyway.
Rolled 35>>23964777A: AffinitiesTech can wait until we can power it.
>>23965024Uh I mean >>23964895Also are we not bothering with dice? Seems silly now I think of it.
Affinities. Super powers help everything.
>>23965032I'll be asking for Dice when it's all finished up.After that I'll type out the results.
Rolled 37>>23964895B: Work on Technology.Please be a good roll
Rolled 65>>23965072Well I failed.
>>23965080Then I forgot the dice were on...
>>23964943Working this their natural affinities do teach them a few things about themselves. Very few can learn the trick, but some can pump their odd energy into their prey while hunting or into a fruit making it...well pop.It isn't much but does sting the others fairly badly and might stun a small animal.->>23965072They discover that living in trees can be hard so they simply sit under them during the day time tossing rocks into the water.

Rolled 88, 41 = 129>>23965135A: Work on their Natural Affinities.B: Work on Technology.Is the thread slow, or am I erratic and/or fast?

Rolled 63>>23965329Alright then, rolling for tech.
>>23965408The food is carried to a large pile, and they've learned how to 'fish' in the large watering hole. They use their powers to lightly char the fish.-Though...while the children were coming in. Some of the youngest men work with stones and broken wood finding that...with the right combanation.

>>23965753Same here. First dude's 52 oughta get us somewhere.>the quaadynCan that be the name for the flying creatures?

Thinking they better know the tricks of their race before going out into the world as hunters or fishers.-After a while...some find that their place is not very safe.
