>>1554719already, we're copper age bastards.What's our job then?
>>1554744shamanmake healing powder and do visions
>>1554770alright, we're a healer/priestWhat's our name?And: What is our greatest asset?
His greatest asset is his good health. Although not the strongest man, he is in good physical condition, and has seldom been ill a day in his life. Perhaps, then, this is why others trust in his wisdom regarding his vocation.
>>1554795alright, we're tough SoBs. Now we only need a name, as well as anything you guys would like to add, be it looks or otherwise.
>>1554806Hm... Neolithic Shaman's names, I'm not sure what'd work.
>>1554806Tublat The Shamanseer
>>1554819alright. Is this you? Or does anything need to be changed?
>>1554834Can we also get a crude shirt, or are shamans not allowed to have that?
>>1554849Oh yeah, now that's an outfit! What does the blue fur represent, the new shirt added?
>>1554851accidentally erasing background layer. That's transparent, not on purpose.Already, It's morning, and you awake from uneasy sleep. What's first on the agenda?
>>1554865Status report, how's our er... village doing? Tribe?
>>1554865Fuck with spirits. Become new Totemist-quest.
>>1554876your village's a medium sized sedentary community, lead by a chieftan, practicing agriculture and husbandry but still very reliant on hunting.It seems like everything's going its usual course, many are out tilling the fields, tending to the animals and so forth.Only strange thing is, the hunting party that was set to come back yesterday hasn't yet returned.
>>1554891>>1554880Talk to the spirits about the missing hunting party.
>>1554891Perform a divination regarding the fate of the hunting party.
>>1554900>>1554903you burn seeds and leafs of uncertain origin, and call out to A'un, your ancestry's spirit.He tells you of tragedy unavoidable.Of the death of those you seek.And of the wolf with hands and a thousand teeth.I'ma be off for a bit, gonna come back later
>>1554948Alert the chieftain at once.
>>1554948>I'ma be off for a bit, gonna come back laterThanks for the session. Hey QM, you might want to consider using a name.
>>1554948That's entirely too many teeth. And hands, for that matter.Alert the chieftain.
>>1555133>>1554951"Danger is afoot! The handed wolf of a thousand teeth is coming!"you burst into the chieftan's hall."What then" asks the chieftan, as of yet unconvinced, "are we to do? I know of no such beast."
>>1555158Gather all combat-capable adults and hunt that beast down!
>>1555176I agree of this here. and lets face it unless we crazy shaman, we get listened to seriously
>>1555176alright, vote 2 d100 to convince. the first d100 determines whose roll I takeYes I stole that system wholesale, sue meyou get a +40 for your smahts.Chieftan gets a +30 for his smahts.>>1555188absolutely, the question is to what degree your advice is followed, not if you're taken seriously at all.
Rolled 6, 81 = 87 (2d100)>>1555194
Rolled 42, 96 = 138 (2d100)for the tribe
Rolled 27, 84 = 111 (2d100)>>1555194This seems rather interesting
Rolled 88 (1d100)>>1555194>>1555259I assure you, you are mistaken
>>1555252>>1555260Alright, the chief trusts your interpretation of the vision, and heeds your advice: The capable men that aren't lost on the hunt will be sent out and take down what must be some sort of terrifying monster. Minus those who will have to stay behind on guard, and of course those missing in action, you have a brave group of half a dozen warriors.Someone, the chieftan says, will have to stay back here, with one of the hall guards, and look after the women and children, and someone will have to lead the expedition. He'll do one, and you'll do one.do you want to>go hunting strange monstersor>stay put and guard the defenseless?
stay and defend, we are not warriors. and I doubt we have an apprentice to pick up what we left off
>>1555317>>stay put and guard the defenseless
>>1555317>go hunting strange monstersWe are the damn religious leader of our tribe, it is our duty to protect and represent our people of blood. We should hunt it by our own accord, and challenge it. We are part of all things, but this spirit is special and we must elevate and become another to dispell its hold on our destiny.
>>1555330>>1555340majority wins,but I think in future highest roll option would be good.The day passes uneventfully, the work in the fields is done, and neither monster nor hunters are to be seen in the evening. Everything so far seems well, and the women and children are back safely behind the village walls.>what now?
do we have a apprentice? if yes then train them, if not find one. we may need to kill this monster ourselves and for that our knowledge can not be lost
>>1555372Offer sacrifices to the spirits for the good outcome of the monster hunt.
>>1555380>>1555385give me d100s with your suggestions pls
Rolled 51 (1d100)>>1555380may the spirits guide the right path
>>1555390Bruh then people could suggest the stupidest crap just go for a plurality system.>>1555380>>1555385Sacrifice with our apprentice then?
Rolled 78 (1d100)>>1555385>>1555406Yep, let's teach him in the process.
>>1555406>Bruh then people could suggest the stupidest crapoh no! >>1555406>>1555408alright, taking this then.
>>1555412>>>1555408>>1555406oh, and roll your smahts, 2d100syour + is a 40, the spirit's + is 20
Rolled 44, 95 = 139 (2d100)>>1555420
Rolled 16 (1d100)>>1555420
>>1555422Pfffft im not rollin with those digits. No thanks.
>>1555422>>1555425you get Neda, a young man you have taken to teach your craft, and slaughter a goat as the ritual demands it, giving its flesh to the community and its entrails to the spirits.And the spirits, they hear you, as a ghostly hare springs out from your hands into the darkness.And here we'll stop for today.
>>1555478Nice. Your pretty fuckin good at this shit my dude. 10/10
>>1555478Thanks for running, man. Do you have a Twitter?
>>1555503thanks, I have discovered that the secret is not giving too much of a fuck>>1555506nope, sorry
>>1555478I really like the art and hope see more. When do you plan to run again?
>>1555524I think I might have time for another one over the next three days, but as this is a super time consuming format, I can't really say. It'll be European day time for sure though
>>1555526I look forward to seeing more. Thanks for running.
>>1555555>>1555526Thanks for running, it's looking interesting.
checking if this still bumps
you are woken in the middle of the night by Neda."They've returned!" he hisses in a concerned tone of voice."That is to say, one of them has returned. Ibto is back, alone, and he wishes to speak to you!"
>>1562772snap out of it and hear him out immediatly, this is ill tidingswelcome back op
>>1562772This doesn't sound good.Meet Ibto immediately.
>>1562789>>1562797Ibto seems bruised and dirty, but not hurt. He hangs his head, clearly ashamed of himself."The wolf is no wolf." he says."And the teeth, though thousandfold, and sharp indeed, are not teeth."The group had been perching through the forest when they had heard the chatter of a great many men. They had snuk up to its origin, and seen, marching through the woods, rows and rows of man with ashen skin, and crooked spears and large planks of leather covered wood on their sides, and gold stuck in their faces.Ibto had been mortified. When then suddenly a rabbit had darted into the crowd, and brought a commotion to it, he had felt compelled to use this moment to turn and run, to the village to warn his family."I left the others." he cries. "I do not know what came of them."
>>1562820better with background
>>1562820How many men were there, how far was it and how fast did they march?They don't look very ashen to me
>>1562834ebony then.you know, the opposite.obviously.
>>1562820comfort Ibto, he can make up his cowardice with valor in the future. And we'll need every single man if those men are coming for our villageDid he see any signs of the hunting party?
>>1562834"More than I can count. They walked only as fast as the beasts they had with them, which were slow and lumbering.">>1562840"From the four missing men, I saw two being dragged behind one of their beasts."
>>1562852A few questions then:- How many people do we have?- How many of them warriors?- What are our fortifications?- What season it is? Has the harvest ended?- What of our food stores?- Do we have a well inside the village?
>>1562856-the tribe before this insident was like 14 men of age, 16 women of age, a hand full old people and a dozen or so children. All men you could see as warriors, though six of them (including the chieftan) are still out hunting the 'wolf' and four are the missing hunting party.-Your fortifications are comparatively excellent, high and thick clay walls with wooden scaffolding, you can see it here >>1554891-it's autumn, and although harvests happen all year round with different small crops, you've stocked your coffers over the last weeks, although there remains fruit on the fields.-food stores are well stocked as above, and you've got a bunch of goats inside the walls. Generally, hunting is a big food source for you though, and without it, problems may arise.-you have a well. I might be away for a bit again, dunno yet
>>1562868Since we have so few people, there must be other tribes nearby with which we intermarry. How far are they and how many people do they have?
>>1562871similarely sized, a few days away.I'll be off cooking now, you'll get a map later
>>1562875The spirits were clear. These men aren't here to be our friends. We're too few even together with the neighbouring tribes to fight them. We need to run.-Attempt to contact the shamans of our neighbours through dreams (it is the middle of the night after all) and warn them.-Conduct a divination on where to run away.-Let Ibto rest. But if the rest won't return by morning, we'll have to do something.
>>1562852Lets not leave our ancestors lands so easily.>warn nearby villages >sent two man to see where these new comers are headingLets not panic before we know they are coming to us
>>1562913Would the spirits warn us if there were no danger?
Sorry, took longer than expected.Alright, here's a map of the area, going about a weeks way in every direction.
>>1562932holy crap, this is awesome, OPthis is a lot of detail for a quest
>>1562915The danger is clear, but we need more information before making so harsh decision as to abandon our village
Rolled 40 (1d100)>>1562938I wanna stress that this is just me drawing whatever. Don't expect a huge thousand part quest with super regular threads and whatnot, I am literally just drawing you guys stuff.>>1562939>>1562878okay what I'm pretty sure you both want is a divination, and I'll throw the dream thing in as a bonus.Roll your smarts (give me 2d100, first die decides who I take, second is the value)your smarts is a +40, the spirits get a +30
>>1562878>>1562932>>1562939let's conduct a divinationI believe in the spirits
Rolled 78, 59 = 137 (2d100)>>1562940PRAISE THE SPIRITS
Rolled 72, 48 = 120 (2d100)>>1562940GLORY TO THE SPIRITS
>>1562942You drink a concoction of ground root and herbs before you fall back asleep, and enter the dreamscape.Naked and bound, you meet again the spirit that came to your aid before, dragging after it four tails, and with one bloody stump.Not far behind, the wolf is gnawing on the fifth, longest tail of the rabbit.You want to cry out, but A'un keeps you from it, as he whispers into your ear in the language of the dead.>tell A'un what he should tell a shaman in his dream.>Choose the shaman of one of the villages to give that message
>>1562950>Send: "Uncountable dark-skinned warriors are coming for our lands. They're very close" Add their current position.>Sent to whichever shaman the enemy is closest to.
>>1562955I'll quess we go with this
>>1562955so you send a message to Valestone and leave the dreamscape.It is now the next day, and there is still no sign of the chieftan's party. The village looks to you for guidance.And I think I'll end it here. Next thing will be in a new thread I'm pretty sure.
>>1562940Then we can say that this is awesome drawn thread with interesting quest slapped on top of it.Thanks for running again.What to do next guys? We barely have any warriors left, but we need to know what happened to chieftain's party and where the hostile group is heading.
>>1562968I propose we order the village to pack up while we ourselves go to find the chieftain and others, relying on our shaman tricks.
>>1562964Damn, I missed it. Your threads start early for me.
>>1562964Is there anyway to contact you privately. I'd love to request some drawings if you'd be willing
>>1562973We look like we're well defended here, and anywhere else we go if likely to be more dangerous, let alone a long, slow journey leaving us more vulnerable.Divination has been effective so far, perhaps the spirits could give us some insight into the whereabouts of the chieftain's party?
>>1563083sure, I guess you could send me on firstname.lastname@example.org
If anybody checks this thread, I'll probably start a new one thursday.
I was told to link to the new thread here>>1574649
