Xeolea civ game Previous thread: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive/4179031/Welcome to the civ game of Xeolea. I will be giving a list of species who are considered valid for the civ stage in the next few posts but before i do so let me set down some ground rules..Rules and explanations:You can evolve any of the creatures which currently exist in the world though minor changes when compared to the previous threads as time is passing a bit more slowly with the civs.Nothing can pass into sentience anymore though other than the 5 species which already havePick one of the species listed in the next few posts and then pick a location on the map in this post in order to begin. To advance the civ post actions and 1d20 and i will post the say on how successful you areIll probbably throw events eventuallyAnyway hello everyone welcome back to the land of Xeolea after 3 weeks
bears+Adaptive (being Lur)+Engineers (how they gained sentiene)+Rapid Breeders (being Drills)-Wasteful (being Drills)-Weak (being Lur)-Short Lived (reproduction type)
fleeders+ Very Powerful (Acid, Claws, Teeth, Four Arms)+ Dexterous(Four Arms)+ Communal (Big Packs)- Snake?
Rollers:+ Communal (Balls)+ Intelligent (Hunting Tactics/Teamwork)+ Conformists (Balls)- Weak (No Bones in arms)there are two of these im going to give confirmation but they have the same stats so im just gonna post the other image next spot
me being dumb
and roller two
>>4245478these were decided to have similar stats to the ursas since they were sort of a variation of them
ursas+ Resilient (Armor Plating)+ Strong (Big Fucking Arms)- Sedentary (Cave-Dwelling)All I could muster. They seem pretty down-the-middle.I will also say that they are a pretty cowardly. They only leave the safety of the cave to gather food, and they only eat meat if they actually kill a predator that was threatening them.OK I THINK THATS IT incoming species charts though so yall can evolve stuff and shit
our globs which are our plants
the flaps and all the dragons that come with it
and the lurs. who have an extra species added tht was a last minute thing on the discord. basically they are the fire drill titans who live deep in the earth ocassionally surfface and and live in the upper mantle. anyway welcome to the game i think we are done here now with all the species
>>4245506>Ursas, The Tear
>>4245553you should give a name to your tribe . cause i will be allowing multiple tribes of each species if people feel like making alternatives
>>4245553>>4245576Lamentos, the Tear-Dwellers
>>4245600alright thats good to go then
>>4245498Raptyrs now have beaks. That is all.
going to leave a note here for anyone who isnt in the discord ive allowed some people to make final edits to the sentient species ill be back in a few hours to respond to rolls and stuff if any have a occured
Rolled 14 (1d20)>>4245600The Tribe of Lamentos attempts to sharpen sticks into spears, which they hurl at a safe distance while fleeing predators.
>>4245490Note: this roller variant is called the strider
>>4245784Note: while they do use stone discs, spears are more accurate and easier to make.
>>4245476What animals live in the desert areas?
>>4246572The brap dragons like to eat the fibrebush that grow in the desert. There's also the sandy looking frog and the silky samurai worm.
>>4245498Also I think you mean bears instead of ursas.
>>4245498As the Raptyrs become more social, they gain a need for a more advanced form of communication. Here, their porous beak comes in handy, transforming into an ocarina-like vocal organ. In addition to allowing for speech, the larger holes can also more easily fit the viscera that composes the Raptyr's diet.
>>4246995You sure you don't want to make your own tribe?
>>4245478Due to their new way of life, Purple Bears experience many small adaptations that help them against predators and further drives them toward true sapience.Their tails grow so short they become virtually non-existenttheir necks become shorter and thicker to better support their increasingly heavy headsand cartilage-hardened antenna-flaps, which slightly increase the distance they can hear
hey gen if you lost the discord here u gohttps://discord.gg/xKT8mc
>>4245494The Bloo!blergh (the ! stands for a click it does with its cute little teeth) clan builds big ol' mud houses. As scaffolding they use the shells of dead rollers, and so the mud houses have the shape a conglomeration of such shells usually takes: round. These round houses can grow quite large, and each village so far has only one in which the rollers live communally, pooping out eggs into hatcheries that everyone has to tend to.
Rolled 19 (1d20)>>4248601
Rolled 18, 6 = 24 (2d20)>>4246995Some Raptyrs lived in the desert, life was pretty shit, there's dragons farting on you, demon bats everywhere, just generally not a good place to live in. So one day a little Raptyr kid was playing with his Globetrops, trying to distract himself from starvation, but just as he was really getting into live action floral roleplay his mom told him to hide because a dragon was passing near. Being a shit child, he didn't listen, and was thus boiled alive by the heatwave emitted from the dragon's butthole. But as his family investigated the corpse, hoping it still held enough edible fluid to at least be recycled, they saw that something strange happened to his Globetrops - the plants have been boiled too, yet for some reason this has made them harder, almost like a Raptyr's claws - but much, much sharper than claws.The Raptyrs realized they had access to a brand new weapon - the sharpstick, a Globetrop thoroughly cooked by a dragon's ass-fumes. This discovery signified the birth of a new tribe - the tribe known as Ooooo.Rolling for the proliferation of sharpstick technology, as well as how well off the Ooooo tribe starts
GM isn't here so I'll try to resolve the rolls for now so the game doesn't stagnate for too long>>4248601(Gonna correct you a bit, rollers don't lay eggs, they do picrelated; so instead of popping out eggs into hatcheries they'd be using the huts as "barrels" full of reproduction slime)The Bloo!blerghs have hit jackpot with their invention - both mud and corpses are plentiful, and as predators do not see dirtballs as suitable prey, they are excellent, safe breeding chambers. Sure, the dirt soaks up some of the nutritious bloodgoop that the embryos are feeding on and the bacteria in it kill some of them, but the first one can be rectified with adults depositing more and the second just means that those who make it to birth are those with better immune systems.Both the mud houses and the mud hatcheries become quite widespread. Unfortunately, the hunter-gatherer lifestyle of current-day Crawlers means that most of these huts have to eventually be abandoned.(Technologies gained: mud hatcheries, mud houses)>>4245784The sticks are potent weapons and the Ursas turn out to be excellent throwers; however, while the spears can ward off feral Fleeders easily enough, they have a hard time against the armored Shellurs and Antisocial Crawlers.(Technologies gained: sharp sticks(wood), sharpening)>>4249007The Raptyrs, just like the Ursas, realize the sheer power of sharp sticks. But unlike Ursas, they have deigned to use them for offense rather than defense. Many innocent Hoppers and Grazers were shanked or darted. Moreover, the process of turning a Globetrop into a weapon through heat inspired young Raptyrs, and soon all kinds of things, ranging from corpses to rocks, were exposed to superheated dragon ass. It was found that cooked Hoppers are too dry to eat, and that heating up sand makes it smooth and shiny.The technology proliferates a bit too well, and the Ooooo tribe ends up getting no royalties from their discovery.(Technologies discovered: sharp sticks(Globetrop), heating things up with dragon ass)
Rolled 2 (1d20)>>4249286The Bloo!blergh are actually already sedentary, they just send out hunting parties very far. But let's say they try to keep the worm-like Lurs >>4245531in big ol pits.
>>4247563purple bears gain more defined elbows and knees, making their limbs longerWith all their biological tools in place, they are now truly sapient.
>>4249286The Lamentos Tribe attempts to learn how to safely harvest the blood grapes from the occasional Globagodas that grow in the Gumdrop Forests.
Rolled 2 (1d20)>>4249356
>>4249324Well the races didn't really have any tools at the start of the thread so I assumed we were starting off with VERY early sapience, before sedentary lifestyles became the norm, but whatever.The scouts searched far and wide, but could find no Lur worm great enough to bring back. Just as they were returning to their settlement however, a miracle struck - a Lur had emerged from seemingly nowhere! This Lur was not only great in size, but perfectly docile as well! Excited by this discovery, the scouts wrangled the creature back to the village - at which point, the geophage was overjoyed to find a whole buffet before it - dozens magnificent balls of delicious soil were all free for the taking!Five houses and two hatcheries were destroyed before the beast had it's fill.
>>4249373>>4249356Harvesting Blood Grapes turned out to be almost pathetically easy - just throw a rock at the net, watch it coil up, and the cut it up with a spear. The gatherers collected so much that they had to call the tribe to the Globagoda rather than try to carry all their loot back to base. A large feast was had, with almost everyone getting their belly full.It was only a few hours later that they discovered that what should be a paralytic for Rollers and Fleeders is a powerful hallucinogenic to Ursas. While the tribe was tripping, Shellurs managed to carry a few villagers away for the slaughter. Worse still, once everybody came off the trip, some even decided they wanted MORE of the grapes!(Discovered technology: drug addiction, some of your villagers are now addicted and thus they spend a lot of time tripping balls instead of working)
>>4249408That was...*different* than outcome that I expected.Props to you, my man.
Rolled 8 (1d20)>>4249408The Lamentos Tribe tries to use the leftover vines to stick pointy rocks onto their sticks.
>>4249421The tiny barbs of the vines serve them well when it comes to clinging to the wood, but they have no such luck adhering to stone; the smoother stones fall out of the ties while the rougher ones tend not to have a particularly good shape for stabbing. Even when the Ursas do manage to stick a rock to their spears, it tends to come off quite easily due to how wobbly the connection is. Perhaps a more secure way of connecting the stone to the stick may be found?
Rolled 11 (1d20)>>4249007>>4249286The Ooooo tribe attempts to maintain their shaky technological superiority over the other Raptyrs by finding uses for the stuff that's been heated up.Rolling to see if they can make anything out of cooked Crawlers.
>>4250425The Ooooo tribe managed to make bowls - now, they can carry delicious broth around instead of leaving it inside the corpse it came from! Unfortunately, this invention's success is limited as soon another discovery is made - liquid disappears not just after it spends too long on the sandy floor, but after it spends too long ANYWHERE. Bringing the bowls under the cool shade of Fibrebrush trees seems to make liquid last longer however. And when the animals were heated by the dragons, liquid disappeared from them too... Maybe heat is what causes fluids to disappear? More investigation into this matter will be needed.
Rolled 17 (1d20)>>4249386that's good. That's what we want. We now have docile lurs, and we see that they eat mud. the bloo!blergh keep them in mud mounds where they can continously eat as the holes they make are being refilled, and the Lur's excrement is used as building material. gret.this is what we wanted.
Rolled 18 (1d20)>>4250418Wrap the vines around other vines to make TWINE! Maybe that will stick the stones to the sticks!
>>4245483The Anguis tribe, the grassland-stalkers
>>4250454Twine proves to be a great connector, keeping stones firmly anchored to sticks. It is aided by another practice, stone knapping, which allows notches to be made in rocks in order to make them easier to bind.(Discovered technologies: twine and simple weavery, stone knapping)>>4250446The worm is reluctant to stay in the village at first, but a few weeks of repeatedly bribing it with the finest dirtballs and smacking it on the gills(the only part not clad in protective scales) whenever it tried to eat a house eventually convinced it that life up here with these weird moving lumpy rocks was actually pretty okay. As the Crawlers built the den for their new pet, they had to improvise - after all, the Lur was much more rambunctious than other crawlers. The mound was built with multiple features allowing maintenance to be performed swiftly, such as stairs and an access platform right above the worm.(Technology gained: domestication, primitive architecture)(Resource gained: one geophage Lur worm)
Rolled 11 (1d20)>>4250518let's get a fucking female for fucking the male.
>>4250518Lay traps with twine around caves to slow down predators.
Rolled 19 (1d20)>>4250533
>>4250518this pic is so good
>>4250519Gee Bill TWO worms?It's pretty taxing servicing two worms though, your crawlers spend more time hauling dirt than trying to find food for themselves. Do you know how hard it is to haul dirt when you only have tentacles and teeth and no shovels or anything? Pretty hard.
Rolled 6 (1d20)>>4250540there is no body shape more suited for working without tools than a tentacle glob. We will get more food once we eat the worm's young. But until then, lets invent the sling to support our hunters
Tally of all the races and their achievements as of now, let me know if I got anything wrong
>>4250555It was decided that the distance a rock is thrown can be longer if the thrower's arm is longer. Unfortunately, after the first ever surgical Arm Extension procedure, it was found out that when separated from the body the Crawler arm quickly loses it's ability to hold rocks.(Lost resource: one(1) arm)>>4250533The trappers get carried away with their task, and soon the entire cave entrance looks like some kind of giant, green spiderweb. While none of the traps are really capable of impeding a predator, the similarity of the nets to the Blood Grape webs greatly discourages them. They did manage to catch some smaller creatures, such as Hoppers and Pixies though.(Gained resource: 5 Hoppers, 4 Herbivorous Pixies)
>>4245516The Ferret Pixie has exchanged flight for camouflage, it's globetrope-shaped winglets and cryptic coloration allowing to sneak up on unsuspecting Hoppers.
Rolled 15 (1d20)>>4250590Slap mud and rocks together in front of cave entrance to hide cave from predators, leave one big rock loose so you can go in.
Rolled 19 (1d20)>>4250590So I looked up the Lurs that turn out to be called Drills. They're covered in silvery minerals. The Bloo!blergh clan will start cracking off some of those to use as tips for their knives.
Rolled 6 (1d20)>>4250429To hollow out Crawler shells, the Raptyrs use Globetrop blades - but the blades often break against the hardened shell. Stones are much tougher than Globetrops - but stones sharp enough to be used for cutting are also rarely found in nature. But maybe, just maybe, it would be possible to SHARPEN stones?Rolling for stone knapping
>>4250652The knapping efforts go rather poorly - the only thing the Raptyrs manage to invent are new ways to break rocks into unusable pebbles and bend globetrop knives.>>4250598The Bloo!Blergh clan's new armaments, on the other hand, perform brilliantly; the new scale-blades are sharp and sturdy, lasting longer than stone while performing consistently better. Soon, one of the worms is balding, and each citizen has a new weapon.They're pretty good for digging too, though the mud keeping the handle and blade together tends to break a lot.(Gained resources: metal knives)>>4250597With Blood Grape-like nets warding off predators and a large rock keeping the entrance shut, the Lamentos cave is now the most fortified settlement on the planet.Also, would you guys like me to rescind the whole "each person can only roll for one tribe" rule? It could be more fun if everyone had access to every tribe.
>>4250667Dunno, would make voting complicated. Maybe just allow access to an additional tribe, so all the species get to participate!
>>4250667Wrap twine together to create rope, use it OUTSIDE the cave to slow down predators in chase.
Rolled 3 (1d20)>>4250679
Rolled 3 (1d20)>>4250667Next step, let's try to insaminate the Drill bitch with some Drill semen to get some good eggs to eat.
Rolled 9 (1d20)>>4250682>>4250679After a few days of INTENSE WEAVING, the rope was complete; rope traps were laid out all around the place!...Unfortunately, a few days later, during an intense storm, lightning had struck a nearby tree, and the rope wrapped around it caught fire; who knew wrapped vines could be so flammable? (Gained technology: rope)A fire is now spreading around your cave, along the ropes and nets you have set up; soon, those inside the cave may be choked by the gases or faint from the surrounding heat.Rolling for how bad the fire is>>4250787A terrible conundrum is posed before the Crawlers: they don't actually know how to make their Drills breed. The worms have a bodyplan completely unsuited to rolling up in a ball and filling it with their own blood, so the mechanics of their reproduction are a complete enigma to the Crawlers.
Rolled 11 (1d20)>>4250998fuuuuuuck. Well we will have to get better at hunting worms then. I say we develop advanced hunting tactics, using long stakes we drill deep into the earth to stake off a path that a drill will take when hunted.We appoint !Blabloo!, the best hunter of the tribe, with developing the tactic.
Rolled 15 (1d20)>>4250998Now that you can trap your predators, learn to make slings to give them blunt damage!
Rolled 7 (1d20)Making stakes is easy, now that you've developed the metal knives; you just get a stick from a tree, clear off any branches, and sharpen it. Using them to herd worms is another matter entirely - staking gets harder the deeper you try to put the stake, and even after a whole crew managed to sink one into the ground fully, it was nowhere near long enough to affect a worm's path. All in all, the project was a waste of time and manpower. Tensions are building between the exhausted workers and the elders that commandeered and oversaw this ordeal, as well as their representative, !Blabloo!.(Gained technology: sharp sticks(wood), sharpening)>>4251038The Ursas sitting in the cave have a burst of inspiration, possibly caused by the caustic fumes of the fire raging outside, and come up with the Disc Launcher - a sling-like device which hurls their signature stone discs with nearly no accuracy at all. Mud is smeared heavily on the sides of the disc to thicken them and ensure it doesn't fall out.(Gained technology: slings(disc launchers))That fire's still burning by the way. Rolling for how much it spreads, again.
Rolled 17 (1d20)>>4251050Use skulls of dead animals/ursas as a bowl and throw water on the fire
>>4251057At the cost of desecrating the memory of the dead, the fire is slain.
Rolled 6 (1d20)>>4251079refine the sling (pic related), and use dense rocks instead of sharp discs
Rolled 18 (1d20)>>4251050still this >>4251021but also I wanna do an exploration roll
>>4251091Roll a second time for exploration then
Rolled 3 (1d100)>>4251093I thought the 11 wasn't resolved yet but alright, yeet
>>4251102The first part of >>4251050 was for >>4251021 I just forgot the link
>>4251113huh. had tunnel vision there. might have been a bad idea to reroll that then.
>>4251086Throwing tiny rocks? What are you, stupid? Those pathetic things wouldn't be enough to hurt even a Hopper! The disc launchers are the way forward.The stone disc mafia keeps it's stranglehold on the projectile market.>>4251091Despite the foolishness of the whole ordeal, !Blabloo! commands the workers to keep making more stakes. Out of contempt for such a meaningless task, one crawler strikes his stick with too much force too fast - and is taken aback as a spark flies between the rock he was holding it on and his knife, setting the wood ablaze!(Gained technology: fire)(the whole stake plan won't work out in the near future, you don't have the technology to make long enough stakes to affect the Drills's movement patterns)>>4251102The scouting party doesn't come back. Just what happened to them is unclear.Also, ANNOUNCEMENT: I'm switching the game to a "free-for-all" format, everyone can now roll for any tribe
>>4251086EVENT FOR THE LAMENTOS TRIBE:While the trappers were resetting the nets that were burned by the fire, they notice a group of small creatures with green shells and many purple limbs slithering around. What was peculiar about them was that they carried sticks with shiny tips and made sounds at each other - almost like Ursas!(First contact between Bloo!blergh scouting party and Lamentos trappers)
>>4251167Simply acknowledge their presence, calmly but cautiously.
Rolled 5 (1d20)>>4251161>learn to make discs into shields
Rolled 16 (1d20)>>4250504The Anguis tribe tries to make MEGA DEATH STICKS (clubs)
Rolled 20, 13 = 33 (2d20)>>4251161we have fire, we have architecture, I'll take clay burning kilns for free please.For the action, I want to try and domesticate some plants. Also I'm rolling a social unrest die.
>>4251207CRITICAL SUCCESS! Your tribe finds 1a small grove of Gumdrop trees near your village, providing ample supply of sticks that can be burned in the kiln. They also have fruit, which would normally be inaccessible to you due to your small stature but can be easily reached thanks to your people's newfound ability to build mud staircases.There is some unrest, but nothing too major as the creation of the kiln and the discovery of the Gumdrop grove take the villagers's minds off the disastrous stake project.(Gained resource: gumdrop tree grove, 7 adult trees and 9 small trees; you may sacrifice one small tree or half a big tree in order to start a project in the kiln)Also, your scouting party from earlier, after a few weeks of being lost in the woods, comes across the Lamentos tribe, as per >>4251167 and >>4251185. What are they gonna do?>>4251188The creation of shields is impeded due to a lack of sufficient materials - there is no way to attach the handle to the shield without compromising it's integrity: there's no latches for rope to stay anchored to and mud isn't strong enough to keep the connection stable.>>4251200The Anguis Deathstick is a simple thing - a young Globagoda, one that hasn't yet grown beyond 30 cm or so, is uprooted and held upside down. It's an inelegant and rare weapon, but when it hits boy does it hit.(Gained technology: young globagoda clubs)
Rolled 13, 20 = 33 (2d20)>>4250652The stone sharpening experiments continue. At the same time, a DIFFERENT set of experiments is performed, exposing bowls with the same amount of fluid inside them to different types of heat - to a dragon's exhaust, to the desert's ambient heat, to areas shaded by Fibrebrush or by strategically applied Crawler shells, and to the chilling breeze of the night.Rolling for stone knapping and for discovering the connection between evaporation and heat.
Rolled 13, 4 = 17 (2d20)>>4252349the bloo!blergh will sacrifice TWO small trees for a single project, to increase the likelyhood of success: This project is an irrigation system for the gumdrop grove.>>4251185They scuttle over to the Lamentos and try to steal something valuable and then scuttle away as quickly as possible (second roll)
>>4250504the Anguis tribe starts beating rocks together, causing sharp shards to break off, trying to create sharp stone fragments
>>4252357The stones are successfully knapped, and their tough nature makes hollowing out Crawler shells significantly faster and easier.The heat experiments go above and beyond what they set out to achieve. Not only did the Raptyrs discover that fluids expire quicker the more heat is applied and that at night they don't expire at all, but they also found out that when disappearing, liquid produces a smell above and leaves residue below! A second theory was quickly developed and tested by covering one of the bowls with a lid - and was proven true: the smell pushed the lid open, so it must have some sort of presence in the world, just like the liquid! Perhaps the smell IS the liquid, separated from the residue by the heat and thus barred of it's shape? Yes, it's all clear now... when heated, liquid loses it's ties to the physical, becoming a dispersing smell, and what is left behind is devoid of fluidity...(Gained technology: stone knapping, primitive understanding of evaporation)
Rolled 6 (1d20)>>4252390The Lamentos tribe tries making a making a wooden shield instead.
>>4245483Slithering Fleeders grow much longer tails, helping them better balance their weight and slither faster. Also, they are bigger.
>>4252359Your people work admirably, but their tools are unsuited to chopping trees and baking bricks; because of this, the project will only be finished on the next turn.The Ursas notice your behavior.(Leaving it up to their player on how to respond)>>4252372Please roll whenever you attempt to discover a technology
Rolled 6 (1d20)>>4252467I'll roll for him
>>4252445The efforts fail due to most tree bark near the cave being charred from the fire, and thus unsuitable for shielding.
Rolled 18 (1d20)>>4252372>>4252469The attempts to make sharp rocks backfire as a spark is produced by the friction and lights the nearby grass on fire.Rolling for how bad the fire is
Rolled 6 (1d20)>>4252470>The Lamentos tribe needs less addicts, so they come up with an idea. One guy will hoard the grapes from the rest of the tribe, and if the addicts start working, they get some berries.
>>4252474Woah, i just rolled 6 three times in a row.
Rolled 3, 18 = 21 (2d20)>>4252467cool, I'll get to drawing then.Until then the rollers will try to use the bark-sinew to use as thread to bind worm scales to the shanks in an axe-like configuration.Second roll is for a new worm hunt.
Rolled 16 (1d20)>>4252471>slither away from the fire
Rolled 19 (1d20)>>4252471while some slither away >>4252482, one trys to get fire with them. Poritur, an elder, slithers to the fire and snatches a torch, to bring it home an dbuild an eternal fire pit with it.The flame seems fit for worship.
>>4252486Hell yeah. Fire worshipping knee-high snake people
>>4252489Well, chest-high now.
>>4252486Wait, are you the co-QM now?
>>4252491Wait, no they're just longer.
>>4252492no, I'm just playing.
>>4252486Some of the tribesmen start offering meat to the flame, which they have started worshipping. Some hungry children eat the almost-burnt meat, and find out that it’s way better than it’s raw counterpart(Not sure if this is too much of an advancement or if the post is done right)
if you guys want me to draw something tell me
>>4252474The guard couldn't help but try to sneak a taste of the berries himself; after he came to from the trip, he noticed that all the grapes were already gone.>>4252481The scales are much too smooth to be held by the fiber and the bark-sinew is much too easily cut by them; while caking the connection point with mud makes it a bit stronger, it still breaks off after just one swing. Also, finding stones long enough to be used as handles is pretty hard.A third worm is located - the scouts note a pattern in the way these creatures surface; all three specimens in custody were found near the local river. Perhaps this is a meeting point of sorts to them?Caring for the worms is becoming difficult as they demand more and more manpower. The tribe had to make some of the children work full hours alongside the adults in order to meet the worms's insatiable appetites.>>4252521This is an alright amount of development, your tribe is kinda lagging behind anyways so any advancement is welcome
Rolled 17, 11 = 28 (2d20)>>4252569okay fuck this, let's get proficient at just using chipped scales on their own. We have tentacles, let's use these things like octopodes would: By grabbing them under you and mushing them a certain way. Rolling for: using plain scales like a champ.Also, Bleribloop, a middle aged female starts claiming that she can influence conception of others so that their children will be particularely strong and healthy. Rolling for: fertility cult.
Rolled 7 (1d20)>>4252569>up the guards, if one tries to sneak the other will stop themthe tribe needs discipline
>>4252583It looks like you really should embrace the drug tripping.
>>4252584I am embracing it, by making them WORK for it!
Rolled 1 (1d20)>>4252569>>4252583Since having guards evidently doesn't seem to work, Lumor Lumorks, one of the Lamentos elders proposes to institute a profession that has a vested interest in the guarding of the berries: The Shaman. The shaman should be guard , keeper and distributer of the berries, and nobody but him may own them, and only from his hands may they take them. This way, the guard is also the owner of the berries and thus incentiviced to be vigilent. The shaman should probably have an apprentice to help him.Lumor selflesly volunteers for the position.
>>4252596The proposal is met with hostility - the grapes belong to the whole tribe, monopolizing them would be putting your own needs above the needs of the many. The druggies convince the impressionable children and the adults who haven't heard about the grape debacle to join them, and together they exile the so-called Shaman and make sure that the grapes are distributed to every villager equally - with themselves being the most equal, of course.(gained new political party - The Drug Cartel, 50 more addicts and 40 child addicts)(lost 50 hunters/gatherers, one elder)>>4252574The Crawlers figure out a strategy of holding up a bunch of scales in a line under their belly and moving them back and forth in a sawing motion for cutting down trees. It works out pretty well, actually, and they get a whole felled tree to show for it.The fertility cult doesn't gain much traction; most people dismiss it as nonsense, though five or six individuals do buy into it and say that it has boosted their Ball coalescence rates, but that might just be placebo effect talking.

Rolled 12 (1d20)>>4252627The bone-eating bacteria was nearly harmless to grazers, feasting on their heavily reinforced shell nodules without any lasting harm to the animal.Unfortunately, the Raptyrs that feast on Grazers do not have any of the handy features that make this infection harmless.Spread by bone-to-bone contact, something as simple as a handshake is enough to transfer the bacteria between individuals. From this point on, the infection will work to gradually weaken the user's bones, resulting in them painfully shattering in a week or two.Rolling for the infection's spread.
Rolled 12 (1d20)>>4252645The elders speak up, "This must be a curse! The only way to rid this evil is to KILL THE HOSTS!"

>>4252650The cursed are killed, most of them pelted with rocks, but a few were beaten to death once the rocks ran out. Many family members were lost, but no tears were shed. For this is the way of the desert, and just as Raptyrs died before, so too will they die today and tomorrow. It's just that now they were killed through curse rather than through shellur or dragon.Those who had to beat the infected and their families were unfortunately also cursed, but thankfully this time they were few enough in number for rocks to suffice.Lost 8 more hunters and 12 more children.
>>4252658Putting injustices to paper was impossible due to lack of paper.NEW OBJECTIVE: FIND PAPER>>4252641The Druggies aren't all that smart, so immediately after exiling a man for being a selfish prick, they begin acting like selfish pricks. Undestandably, they and their clique of fellow addicts were exiled soon after as well. The child addicts are spared though, their parents think they can still put some sense back into their heads before they turn out like those selfish deadbeats.(Lost political faction: The Drug Cartel, also lost all 70 addicts, 10 of whom are The Drug Cartel)>>4252636This happens.>>4252625The Katta get pretty nice knives, they're naturals at stone knapping.(Gained technology: stone knapping)

It was a good enough substitute for walls, too - Querty has stacked together a bunch of bark tiles and glued them with mud, rope and sticks to construct a primitive shack to hunker down in for the night. There's only enough space for one person so they'll have to take turns until a second shack is made.(gained technology: shitty shacks)>>4252669A small pack of Raptyrs was found, but they are complete savages, it will take a while to teach them the ways of civilization.(Gained 20 adults, 15 children)>>4252672Fire is created again, now by yet another species.(Gained technology: fire)>>4252676Please roll when you take actions>>4252696An intense session of rock-bashing quickly devolves into an intense session of cock-smashing.(gained technology: rock-powered CBT)(Lost resource: 2 nuts)

Rolled 12, 10 = 22 (2d20)rolling for proof
Rolled 90 (1d100)>>4252714The domestication efforts fail, mainly because the plant is native to a completely different side of the world you have no access to(see map).Just because of that 1 though, for the next 1d100 years all babies born without Beribloop personally blessing them will be cursed to frown. You're welcome.>>4252755>>4252788The effigies are made of wood and carved using stone tools; however, as Querty is just one Ursa, the production goes slowly.No plants are domesticated as all time is spent foraging or carving.(gained technology: wood carving)>>4252771The striders perform worse than the crawlers due to their inferior equipment, but manage to catch some Hoppers anyways.>>4252766It seems that the rocks are melted too quickly by the acid to be hurled.>>4252785The scouts can locate no usable bark - it seems that someone has stripped most of it recently.>>4252844The scouts perish during their travel due to another outbreak of the curse.Knives on sticks could not be made due to a lack of any kind of stick-bearing flora in a few kilometer radius. They do manage to get some slightly longer weapons by sharpening Stilt Crawler legs though.(Lost 5 hunters)

A compromise is reached: !Blabloo! is to start a hunting camp two day's travel away from Blergh, the town of Bloo!blergh, and if it is successful, they'll put a statue of her there.And so she sets out with some of her hunters and a few workers, to do just that.Rolling for Bloo!, the new town of the Bloo!blerghs!

Rolled 8 (1d20)>>4253074Some Languis braves are lazy in building, and an over enthusiastic foreman explains that with the wall, it's like with the fire: It's useful and therefore important.This leads to some Languis revering the wall as others revere the fire. Rolling for spread of this cult.>>4253005
>>4253078The wooden statues "sell" like hotcakes; basically everyone wants one, and Lamentos villagers willingly sneak out and work for Lumor in exchange for having one made in their likeness. Of course, being caught aiding an exile is punishable by also being exiled, so a few of these "hired workers" end up being permanent additions to the Lumor.Also FUCKING FINALLY SOMEONE MADE AN ACTUAL AXE FUCK YES THIS IS AMAZING(gained 7 permanent hunters/gatherers, 30 "hired" hunters/gatherers)(gained technology: AXES FUCK YEAH)>>4253088The wall cult gains a minor following; however, most Languis understand that the wall, being fleeder-made, is not as mystical as the fire, and thus not as holy, and do not join the cult.(12 wall cultists gained)>>4253069The bears are now dressed in SWEET DUDS. The SWEET DUDS are frighteningly expensive to make due to the complexity of the process involved, and thus societal stratification begins, with society divided into two groups: those who wear SWEET DUDS, and those who do not.(Gained technology: clothing)>>4253042!Blabloo!'s plan was quite ingenious - the river that worms congregate near was well within the "two days travel" limit, so the town of Bloo! could simply exploit their tendency to surface there in order to rank up truly magnificent amounts of loot. Meats and scales alike were had in great quantity, and the settlement prospers.>>4253019The savages completely fail to grasp the intricacies of heat dynamics, calling them witchery and perversions of the natural legend. Tensions rise as the two groups slowly realize the divide between their worldviews.
Rolled 18 (1d20)>>4253057The rituals accidentally stumble upon a memetic sequence that affects the Fleeder brain directly, stimulating the production of chemicals that induce joy, awe, fascination and disgust in anyone who witnesses that portion of the ritual, and thus increasing the likelihood of them attempting to perform the ritual themselves and of them considering it an important part of their life.The CBT religion spreads across the southern tundra.In a search for mud, the cultists stumble across a fissure in a glacier - one filled with tons and tons of a special kind of mud!Rolling for the nature of the special mud.
Rolled 13 (1d20)>>4253110The groups within the Oooo independently of each other plan a coup, either side wanting to subjugate the other.High is the civilized, low is the savages, the further from the middle, the more decisive the coup. The civilized would have the savages as thralls, creating a division of slaves and masters. The savages would have the civilized also savages, making the tribe into a nomadic army where the strongest rule.
Rolled 2 (1d20)>>4253110In Blergh, they build a garden with the most vibrant candytrees, for merriment and watching people fuck in front of Bleribloop. I don't assume this needs a roll.Meanwhile, from Bloop! so much meat and scales comes down that there is enough to trade with the Lumor and the Lamentos.

>>4253196The buildings surprisingly don’t fall apart. Each Anguis family now sleeps in roofless small circles of stone which aren’t particularly useful for heat insulation and which can be likely destroyed by a strong storm but hey it helps a bit with rain. Fortunately the Great Flame (TM) isn’t snuffed out by the small walls surrounding it, though some elders consider the act to be heresy
Rolled 91 (1d100)>>4253139The original tribe, having a slight advantage in number of able-bodied adults, as well as weapons with longer reach, have managed to subjugate the savages, though tensions are high as the two parties are about even in their combat ability and neither wants to suffer any casualties that would come from a direct confrontation.(Gained technology: social stratification)>>4253148The method of quantifying goods is suggested to the Rollers by a kindly old Ursa, what was his name again? Lamor? Lemor? Whatever. The point is, the solution was simple - "lets just have it as much as you can carry for as much as I can carry"; when trading, the two salesmen would both lift whatever amount of each other's product they can to determine what they can get. This works fine enough for inter-roller trade, even if it's not as good as recording numbers would have been....Problems start to arise when the Rollers have to trade with the Ursas, who are significantly stronger - and thus can easily take the entirety of a Roller salesman's stock while he struggles to lift a single wooden figurine.>>4253156The temple construction was postponed due to the fact that nobody present knew how to build; the attending crowd had to make do with just some rituals and some drugged saltwater.The cultists, seeing great potential in the special mud, cleverly chose to throw some disembodied gonads in there. Come next day, the impact sites of the gonads have sprouted into oily, bulbous spires. An initial examination revealed that the bulbs are tacky, taste like rotten shit and smell even worse, they are in fact edible.(gained special resource: special mud)Also, rolling for how many Fleeders outside the cult were converted to the CBT religion(roll result * 10)>>4253172The Villa Van Lumor is a sight to behold; sure, by modern standards it would be considered a shack, but by stone age standards it is a work of art. It's artful qualities are enhanced by the multitude of shitty scribbles all over it's inner walls.(gained technology: houses, written language, primitive architecture)>>4253202The Great Wall seems to be the shy type, too reluctant to partake in the food offered to it. The wall around the fire is shunned at first, but eventually welcomed as it is reported that the holy fire leaves it's resting spot much less often with the wall around it(probably because it deflects most wind)>>425325660 adults and 40 kids are inducted into the tribe.>>4253276Taking the roots out reveals that they've been rotted to the core by a kind of small worm. It quickly turns out that the worms have the same appetite for the sticks from which spears are made as they had for the roots. Which is to say, ravenous.(your wooden tools are now subject to an infestation of wood-eating worms)>>4254288The Lamentos find that there are some strange rocks with shiny yellow parts lying around.(gained resource - gold nuggets)>>4254503The Fuslibees are tamed.

Current tally.Also, EVENT: the Ursas and Rollers have been in contact long enough to begin learning each other's language and trade; as the tribes expand, the two races interact even more. Will they become friends, or enemies? Only time and dice will tell.
Rolled 18 (1d20)>>4254541Finally, !Blabloo! gets her statue. It is generally agreed upon in Bloo! that to butcher one's kill under this statue makes the meat nicer, since when !Blabloo! helps you butcher your kill, that results in nicer meat. But !Blabloo! is not satisfied. Bleribloop (who by now has died, but she's still around thanks to the statue) has not just a statue: She has a garden. And !Blabloo! wants one too. The biggest one. She tells her people, who tell her her invisioned garden is too big. Too big, she responds, is precisely the size of garden that she's after. And so she goes out into the forest to get some other roller tribes to integrate into the Bloo!blerghs as workers for her grand project.
Rolled 10 (1d20)>>4254541Meanwhile, back at Blergh, people try to domesticate the grass into a crop they can use for string so they can finally copy the amazing AXES they have to pay inorbinant prices for at the Lumor tribe.Speaking of trade, the rollers have mostly stopped doing that with the Ursus since it turns out for some reason you can never get out ahead in that interaction. It's not clear why.

They are less advanced than Bloo!Blergh, having not domesticated worms, and only recently discovered clay and fire, but it's better than having no tech at all.The grass doesn't work well for string, as it's outer layer is much too rubbery while it's inner layers are much too mushy and gooey, while the hairs on the pods aren't long enough to be weaved easily. Unfortunate, but maybe the new tribe they absorbed does know about making rope? Rolling 1d2 to see if they do.(Gained one new settlement, 60 adults and 40 kids)>>4254569Cotton threads make clothes more comfortable and less likely to fall apart, but also complicate the weaving process even more.

Your Fuslibees are tripping balls while wrapped up by digestive vines.>>4254581You manage to round up 19 addicts - among them, three were heavily involved in making stone disks and thus are somewhat experienced craftsmen, and eight, including one of the craftsmen, are attempting to rehabilitate and dispose of their habit.The villa's expansion is postponed when the tower is found to be too heavy to be stable; thankfully, it didn't hit anyone when it fell. Another problem discovered during the building process was that wooden logs aren't enough to support an Ursa's weight, as an incident involving a prototype staircase and a broken leg testified.>>4254582(waiting on the Bloo!blergh's answer to this)>>4254588A pickaxe-axe hybrid is made of the leg of a Stilt Crawler; one claw is sharpened into a point while the other is turned into a blade, allowing both the fragmentation of rocks and/or bones and violent decapitation to be performed.(Gained technology: axes/pickaxes)>>4254592The followers of The Wall develop a training regime centered around defense, while The Fire's followers do the same for offense.(gained technology: martial arts)

But since the Lamentos have rolled a 15, the Bloo!Blerghs try to get a new system going for more equal trade. However well that works out, they agree to the trade, offering to build a kiln in the Lamentos caverns if they show them how to make axes and spears.

>>4254678The vine collection process goes awry due to everyone involved being too high.(gained technology: drug addiction)(gained 3 addicts)>>4254694The Rollers come up with a way of actually recording numbers: you keep a stick and a sharp stone at hand, and whenever you have to count something, you fold up your tentacles - once all 11 are folded up you unfold them and make another notch on the stick using the stone. The amount of notches on the stick shows how many 11s of a product you have. Thanks to this system, trade between Rollers is greatly streamlined.The Ursas still end up ahead of the Rollers though for some reason; maybe it's because they've only got eight fingers to count with...A trade for axes could not be performed, as Lamentos does not have axe technology. Spears are fair game though.(gained technology: written numbers, enhanced spears)>>4254686(gained technology: clay baking)>>4254695>>4254808During a routine sharpening of pickaxes, a stray spark escaped a lit a pile of Globetrops ablaze!

If the savages got their hands on it, they would no doubt pose a great danger to the civilized ones...(gained technology: fire, but it is kept secret from most of the tribe, and it's expensive due to needing globetrops as fuel)A tribe of 40 or so Raptyrs is found to the north. Unknown to the civilized ones, one of the savages confides of their witchcraft to the newfound tribe, and they are sympathetic to their plight.>>4254700The Anguis use sharpened rocks to etch pictures into the stones of the wall.

In a few weeks, the food stockpiles are infested with the critters.(Gained: Blossom Leaper infestation)>>4254726A type of ritual scarring catches on among the Fleeders - a sharp rock will be used to create deep gashes in the skin, which are arranged in such a way so as to form caricaturized rude gestures emblazoned on the creature's hide. Many die from infection caused by the procedure, but this just means that the survivors are stronger than most.(Gained technologies: scar-based tatoos, tatoos as a form of writing)>>4254730Martial arts are not worshipped as The Wall and The Fire are - after all, offense and defense are mere aspects of the two gods; you don't worship just God's toe or left ear or whatever, you worship all of him![1/2]
>>4254739The garden's creation is underway, but it will take a while to finish; additionally, it's weight is becoming too much for it's own structure to bear - the bricks are becoming way too shaky and dislodging too easily.[GARDEN PROGRESS - 1/2]The plant-breeding efforts result in failure - when the bulbs of the plants are mashed together in a pile, as their reproduction no doubt requires, the resulting offspring exhibit seemingly random traits! Sure, that's how Roller reproduction works as well, but with Rollers it isn't so infuriating!>>4254771Making buildings out of stone is much harder than it seems - the stones take an awfully long time to be chipped into appropriate shapes, and even then it's hard to keep them steady and prevent them from collapsing even with mud between them. The tower's completion progresses slowly.[TOWER PROGRESS - 1/3]Querty has the misfortune of meeting a very angry, very hungry Shellur by the river. It has speed and sharp claws on it's side, but Querty evens it out with her axe and wit. It is impossible to predict who will come out on top.>>4254777The cotton threads are much too delicate to keep the huts upright, though they are enough to bind five or six sticks.>>4254806Globagoda-based clubs are too smooth to hold stones without extensive remodeling.

Each martial artist has his own, unique spin on the art, no less deadly than any other.The Joustlers may not be social, but they are intelligent enough to realize that the food Fleeders give them is better than normal food, and that Fleeders only give them food if they help them hunt and don't eat their babies.(Gained technology: domestication)(Gained resource: 4 Joustlers)>>4255994The beast was too quick - in the time it took Querty to swing her axe, it could already circle her and attack from behind. She did eventually wound it, causing it to slither away - but only after it had taken her arm and eye.>>4255994>>4256015The Bloo!Blergh tribe adds studs and studholes to the bricks, so that when brought together they would interlock and stay in place. Another new technique is laying a foundation under the building, to make it more stable.[GARDEN PROGRESS -1.5/2]While the walls are now complete, filling them with soil turns out to be another matter entirely - the Rollers have to carry the dirt manually in bowls, and those are quite difficult to operate when you're about the same size as the bowl!The grove can hardly be expanded, as you've spent three of the big trees as fuel for the kilns - you'll have to bring it back to it's original size first before you can think about making it self-sustaining.>>4256011The Fleeders find nothing but the same old grass. Looks like it's another round of eating bulbous hole muck today.The cbt gang reasons that since the infection is caused by some meat being cut out, they can fix it by putting some replacement meat in the wound. Understandably, it doesn't work.>>4256022>>4256018The shiny things are haphazardly cleaned of rock and bent into proper shape through incessant hammering.

Rolled 7, 8 = 15 (2d20)>>4256044The vassal Raptyrs begin regularly sending runners to the northern tribe in order to collaborate on the coup.Rolling for whether the runners get spotted or not and for how much interest the idea gathers from the other tribe

>>4256053Voting for the Fleeders to grow a splunsch and a shameery
Rolled 2 (1d20)>>4256044Now that the Lamentos tribe has a kiln, they will build their first house outside of the cave! Trade has gone so good recently that they want a trading post in the open. Heck, they might even be able to convince others that the yellow stone they found (and that is far too soft for tools) is worth something!
>>4256047The epiphany comes when a wild worm ruins the carefully crafted den in order to copulate with one of the captive ones - the miracle of worm sex is at last revealed to Rollers. It turns out that these majestic creatures reproduce not through ball formation, but through a bizzare overlapping of tail-ends!The discovery benefits the grass breeding efforts as well - the Rollers try to rub just two bulbs together(inadvertedly causing them to release their spores right into each other), and find that this way the results of breeding are much more consistent - breeding two rare red-bulbed grass stalks for example causes both of their children to have red bulbs as well. Soon, by pairing off their best grass with each other, they manage to make it suit their specifications much closer.Due to a freak lightning strike the orchard is burned down - only one tree remains. The trees in the gardens won't be enough to compensate, as they are still young.>>4256048A martial arts style is developed that combines offense and defense. One Fleeder accidentally calls it the "style of water" due to the fluid motions involved. and now there's a third cult.>>4256049>>4256050The Ooooo try crushing the juice out of firebrush fruit... and find that it's edible, if highly unpalatable. Firebrush juice becomes a staple food item alongside the traditional meat squeezing's, as while not tasty it is much easier to get than fresh meat is, and makes you sick less often. The savages refuse to eat it, believing the spicy taste is the sign of a curse.Mining doesn't work out too well, as the bone pickaxes tend to break too easily. Nevertheless, enough stone is collected to build a sort of wall-esque circle with no roof and an uneven hole for a door, which is covered with a bigger rock during the night. It's not much, but it's good enough for hiding from beasts and wind. Since rocks are hard to carry it was built right near the mountain where the rocks came from.(Gained technology: mining, stone walls)>>4256056The runners were caught, and security was tightened, with two civilized Raptyrs always patrolling at night. Due to this, there's not much communication with the other tribe, and not a lot of support is gained.>>4256059The scouts find their path blocked by a huge rock. Like, a really huge one. You can't even see the horizon behind it. There should be a name for rocks this big. Maybe "moo-ntain"? Whatever. Anyways, this big rock blocked their path, and there were some purple dudes with white coats walking around, so they decided not to mess with it because it's clearly a magic artifact.A more rational form of thinking could not be achieved due to the fact that the thinkers were too busy trying to count how many dislodged scrotums they could juggle.
Rolled 16, 10 = 26 (2d20)>>4256073the claw decide to go in another direction and hope no "moontens" block their wayat home,they try and make the food they have taste better somehow
Rolled 11, 10 = 21 (2d20)>>4256073fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck. Well one thing's for sure, Bleribloop's blessing does not work for trees. There is much upheavel in Blergh as they are suddenly much more dependent on the food from Bloop. A culprit is sought, and one is quickly found: Loodiloo says he did it. he did the lightning.The other rollers are pretty upset about that but don't dare lay a hand on him since the lightning was pretty horrible. So instead Loodiloo is given a number of fellow farmers to go off and make a new orchad town some ways away from Blergh. If he manages to do it, he'll get a statue too.Meanwhile, !Blabloo! feels too old to continue hunting and instead starts tinkering on a new invention... rolling for a random invention.
Rolled 16, 18 = 34 (2d20)>>4256073The Karak make nets for fishing and migrate down south. first roll is for nets, second roll is for migration and what they find.

They might or might not have some trees of their own nearby.Rolling for how many trees they have(1d6-1)>>4256072The Lamentos had the bright idea to install their kiln in the middle of the communal cave. And leave the door closed when using it.Suffice to say, a bunch of people died of smoke inhalation before the door was opened and everyone rushed outside.(lost 17 children and 12 adults)
Rolled 4, 17 = 21 (2d20)>>4256083Oh nice, Loodiloo will build a new orchad there and a few houses and such. The settlement will be called Bloondybloo, after the roller word for candytreeThe lamentos meanwhile are debating over whether it's the rollers fault that their children died and how to react to that.

Rolled 1 (1d20)>>4256073Still shaken by the plague, the savages create a SKELETON CULT! They believe skeletons are souls in physical form!

Sorry, when I made the anguis tribe I forgot to say that I wanted them to be here. I don’t think anyone lives there, but please correct me if I’m wrong
Rolled 84 (1d100)>>4256076Going north leads the scouts to a drier, warmer area, populated by all kinds of exotic plants - shiny grey Globagodas and Gumdrop trees with branches sticking out like towers. Among all the plants one catches their eye the most - a taller breed of grass, which has replaced it's singular bulb with multiple small, flatter ones. It proves to be rather palatable.Back at the iceberg crack, the Fleeders have resorted to simply dousing their gooey sustenance in the blood of Fluff rollers. It still tastes bad, but at least the blood kinda conceals the taste. Kinda.>>4256077>>4256089Loodiloo travels to Bloondybloo, the only town where any Gumdrop trees remain. While the locals are pretty open to the ideas that big city Rollers bring with them, Loodiloo's crew of craftsmen is young and lacking in experience; the new orchard is going to be their first project.!Blabloo! figures out a way to ease the transfer of dirt to the new garden - by attaching pots of soil directly to the sides of the shell instead of carrying them in your arms, the process can be made much easier.[GARDEN PROGRESS - 2/2]Also rolling to see how many worm eggs you have>>4256080The fishing nets are basically just Blood Grape nets with the grapes removed and the psychedelic compound cleaned off. Down south, a second tribe of Bears is found - they call themselves Katta and dress in pink.>>4256105The pickaxes send off a chain reaction - by making stone pickaxes, you can chop stone faster, and you can make that chopped stone into MORE stone pickaxes! Soon, this handy little piece of technology becomes very, very prolific.Thanks to the pickaxes, a stone wall could be built quickly and efficiently.(gained technology: stone pickaxes, stone bricks)The miners also found some unusual rocks while stocking up on stone - they're shiny like the yellow rocks, but they're brown and got weird shapes.(gained resource: copper deposits)>>4256089It is quickly determined that the Rollers couldn't be to blame - after all, they couldn't have foreseen that the Lamentos would put the kiln in the cave! However, once the topic of Rollers was breached, the discussion gradually moved away from the kiln incident and towards the relations between Ursas and Rollers - how come the Rollers keep all their wonderful trees and gardens and canals full of water and shiny knives to themselves, while Ursas have to get by living in one cramped cave? It's so unfair! Maybe they should show these weird little bugs what for and take what they deserve.(Gained anti-roller, pro-war sentiment among the populace)[1/2]
>>4256124>>4256126The master of Water Style is a man named Cussehm - he had studied under the tutelage of Water Style's creator, and while his master simply combined the Wall and Fire styles, he refined them. The Anguis consider water a malevolent deity, which craves flesh and thus forced all life to require itself for sustenance, so that they may one time slip and fall into it's drowning grasp. It is worshipped by throwing meat into the river.The Joustlers are pretty good at hauling stone, as they have almost perfectly flat backs.(gained technology: burden animals)>>4256127The skeleton cult believes that the only path to spiritual enlightenment is by freeing the soul. They do this by removing people's skeleton and keeping them alive as long as possible during the process. for some reason, all their targets are civilized ones, and they also don't like publicity like most religions do.(gained technology: torture, only savages know how to do it)>>4256130The Fuslibees, being similar in shape to seals, undulate their back wildly when walking just like those majestic earth creatures; because of this, riding them is nearly impossible.>>4256133Gumdrop fruits turn out to be basically the universal favorite food: bears love it, grazers love it, pixies love it, even wild fleeders love it!(gained technology: attracting animals with fruit)>>4256200The cult of !Blabloo! spreads far and wide as worms become more entwined with the Roller life. The cult of Bleribloop however is in a slump as it's messiah is no longer there to spread the message, and some Rollers detest her due to believing that the curse than causes all babies to frown unless blessed was her doing.
CURRENT TALLYEVENT: Knowledge LossAs the knowledgebase of Lamentos and Bloo!blergh becomes ever larger, it is found that no single individual has the time to practice all of it; because of this, entire technologies and important historical events end up forgotten by most of the populace. Thus, it is imperative to start some sort of record, to keep track of it all.
Rolled 19, 20 = 39 (2d20)>>4257749rolling for the reaction of the Karak to the Katta. Low is peaceful, high is aggressive. Second roll is for who comes out on top. Low is Karak, high is Katta.

Rolled 18, 6 = 24 (2d20)>>4257756The worm eggs are distributed among the different cities to make new worm mounds. What is left over is made into omlettes. Loodiloo doesn't get a statue yet because he really hasn't done as well as !Blabloo! yet. The knowledge loss is attempted to be reconciled by using the system of etching into sticks for counting: For some time now, a symbol ffor 11 and 11*8 (8 being what fits on a usual stick) has been introduced to save space. This system, they think they can refine into a big ol' writing system (first roll).Seeing the Lamentos tribe getting kind of antsy, Snooflooloo!!, a Blergh elder considers whether it would be good maybe build a wall in one of the settlements. (second roll)
Rolled 4, 20 = 24 (2d20)>>4257756The Lamentos make the best out of a bad situation: They try to domesticate the hoppers into foodstuffs.Meanwhile, in Lumor, a frustrated, half imobilized Querty has made a decree that you have to give her something for her birthday every year, so the people of Lumor go out to find her something.

>>4257756Some anguis hunters strip the tendons off their prey, and to make a little experiment they dry them. After taking note of how they are pretty resistant, they start stretching and bending them, finding the sound produced funny. One very inventive hunter tries to bind several tendons to two branches to make a musical instrument

>>4257770The Karak attempt to attack the Katta, so as to take their territory as their own. This proves to be a huge mistake however as the Karak are tired after several dozen miles of walking while the Katta have more than twice as many fighters on their side and are fighting on their home turf. It is a decisive victory, with the Karak tribe completely trounced. The Katta only took 20 people in casualties, and substituted them with 30 Karak slaves.(The Karak tribe is destroyed)>>4257771Enough seed bulbs were gathered to fill a small field. The Fleeders rejoice as they no longer need to eat weird hole muck.(Gained technology: planting)>>4257776Trying to wean off the 3 extant addicts just leads to their two handlers also becoming addicts.>>4257785A writing system evolves from a mix of Roller counting and Lumor pictographs as the two are united in a trade tallying system - small clay bricks would be engraved with pictures signifying a transaction. This one, for example, signifies a Roller selling 352(11*8*2) fruits to an Ursa in exchange for 12(11+1) pickaxes. Translating symbols used for trade into those applicable to clay baking instructions and stockpile records was pretty easy.Snoofloofloo!!'s proposal is rejected - the garden's wall already took a lot of effort from the dimunitive Rollers, making one around a whole village would be insane!(Gained technology: pictographic writing system, geared towards instructions and stockpile records)>>4257786The hoppers, despite their chipper pink coloration, turn to be pretty filthy, and 5 out of the 6 Ursas who tried to eat them came down with a stomach illness.>>4257794>>4257808>>4257816>>4257850The inventors of firemaking are hailed as the chosen ones; they are appointed as religious figureheads and often asked for spiritual advice.With their newfound ability to create fire, Anguis perform a wide array of experiments: while drying tendons is believed to be of interest, right now they're more enthused by tanning leather. They also learn to make Blood Grape vines into twine. Truly, these are exciting times. The religion's complexity could not be expanded due to the concurrent expansion of sciences.(Gained technology: leather tanning, fire, twine)>>4257822>>4257838The skeleton garments prove to be a bad idea, as their loud clanking alerts their victims. In the end, they can't get even a single kill, and just make the local nomads angry.Banishing the cult of skeletons is impossible, as they have already banished themselves out of shame for their incompetence.(Gained new tribe - skeleton exiles, 5 individuals)>>4257833The Lamentos people are too busy bitching about Rollers and preparing their pickaxes for war to concert themselves with expansion or invention.>>4257851The explorers forgot to take food with them and starved to death.
>>4257854The Lumor advances past pictograms and towards letters and phonemes. This language is more complex, yet more insightful as well. Numbers are borrowed from Rollers.(Gained technology: advanced writing, numbers)>>4257921Karak can't use Fuslibees as cattle because Karak as a tribe no longer exist!>>4257925Katta domesticate Karaks, who have domesticated Fuslibees.>>4257786Most gifts are just food or statuettes or "get better soon" giftcards, but one young Ursa outdoes everyone; he had wandered away into the caves earlier the week, and returned just in time to give Querty what he had found in the depths: a strange, convoluted rock, shiny in places and flaky in others, shaped roughly like an arm. Will Querty consider this a sick joke about her crippled state? Or a gift from the forces above, telling her that she still has a role to play in the world?
Rolled 8, 13, 8 = 29 (3d20)>>4258619>>4258630While Snoofloofloo!! is a cook and is denigraded to worm poop shoveling, the idea that the Lamentos seem dangerously angry is not far fetched. The rollers try to construct shields (roll 1) and, using the new great system of giving out instructions, they start a system whereby a number of rollers should be a trained militia in case of conflict (roll 2, I hope that gets a bonus from the writing)The writing is used by adherents of the respective cults to write about how great their patrons are.Third roll is for getting Bloondybloo to a more productive size, tree wise

On the note of trees, some of the saplings in the gardens of Blergh have also matured into small trees.(gained technology: shields, militia)(gained 7 small trees, 1 in Bloondybloo and 6 in Blergh gardens)The diplomat is detained by the Lamentos, and held in a top-security cell(which is just a deep pit with the walls covered in smooth clay)>>4258654>>4258671The Katta can't turn the Fuslibees into cattle just yet, as they're still getting a downlow of Fuslibee behavior and history from the Karak, who turn out to be amazingly cooperative, likely due to how overwhelmingly stacked the odds are against them.(Katta gains Karak technology)>>4258656>>4258795The raid is barely successful, with the skeletons losing one of their own but gaining two new "recruits". They are definitely not slaves, as slavery is something only villains do.

They call this "the way of the grass"(gained technology: camouflage)>>4258766>>4259564The two-dick fleeder is immediately declared holy and appointed king; the newly founded kingdom's master tattoists offer to commemorate the event by engraving it on the king's hide, but get carried away and accidentally kill him by skinning him alive.(gained technology: skin removal)The awful act makes them ashamed of even entertaining the thought of skin-writing, so they start writing on the ground instead. Everyone involved agrees that it is not as fun, but much more convenient.Some fleeders attempt to build houses by piling together sticks; however, the stickpiles keep falling apart. One would-be architect gets so mad about this that he throws a handful of Special Mud at his misbegotten creation - and finds that it's a great adhesive for sticks.(gained technology: writing, gluing stuff together with special mud)

The Joustlers get down to business, but since they are four times as big as fleeders, and Joustler business is extremely violent, they crush two of the elders in the process! (Lost 2 elders, gained a Joustler pup)>>4259769Nobody dares go close to the Joustlers now and so the concept of wheelcarts is dead in the water>>4259757The anguis try to domesticate some unintelligent animals, but those start flinging rocks at them! There is a bit of a back and forth and at the end the striders retreat, leaving four of their dead behind and having killed two Anguis water dancers.>>4259743The new Karakkatta tribe is established and everybody thinks that's basically a good idea. Bears, it is reasoned, are nice and should be protected, irrespective where they come from. (New technology: bear rights)>>4259751The lamentos hit a vein of yellowish stone so plentifyul that they immidiately get a bunch of it out of the ground using their primitive stone tools. The stuff is harder than the gold they got before, but untreated, weaker than their stone. There is still much left in there, it's visibly taunting them, they just have to get it out! (Resource acquired: Some Chalcopyrite ore)>>4259753Heartened by the new discovery, they start mining deeper, but they accidentally tunnel into the tunnel of a big-ass aggressive Drill Lur which quickly occupies their copper diposit cavern. (Problem: Drill Lur infestation)Since the Drill is giant and dangerous, they decide to hold up wood to protect from its bite. Hey, that works! (new tech: wooden shields)>>4259758The Moo-Oooo outpost is established, though nobody really knows if there is anything to mine where they plonked down. Right now, that's the last on anyone's mind anyway, since they first of all have to find something to eat here.

So wise in fact that he proclaims that worshipping the sea was just a phase for him and they should instead start worshipping him!

>>4261633>>4259799Cocksure of their advantage, a militia of a hundred rollers goto attack the Lamentos. What they did not consider was that the Lamentos live in a walled-in cave and are much larger than rollers. While the rollers were more, more organized, and arguably better equipped,the Ursus just pelted them with stones and spears from inside the cave, using their shields to protect against the sling shots. Twenty rollers die, while only four ursus perish. Meanwhile at home, the three settlements are connected with roads that are far more than just dirt paths: First ditches are dug, they are filled with stones, then mud, and then a layer of smoothed clay bricks. It's amazing to slither on them, and it makes everything more efficient. The rollers at home want to build a statue to the guy who designed it, but no consensus is reached as to who that was.>>4259816Querty crawls back, humiliated, to the Lamentos, who, in ecstasy over finally having killed some rollers, take her on with a shrug. It was Lumor that had been banished, not Querty. Dispite this victory, Querty finds a tribe completely frought with problems, which, combined with their lack of agriculture, has lead to their population growth stagnating.

(first dice)For offense, they try to train some of the newly hatched worms as war beasts.
>>4261636The RTG concucts the perfect plan to outst the priest king: First, get his second in command on their side by promising him a seat at the council to replace Phk, second, discredit him with the populuce and third, take him by force in an act that appears to be self defence: When he comes with his goons to arrest them. Everything goes according to rational plan, and Phk is chased out of the tribe with two dozen of his loyal followers. (New tribe: The disciples of Phk, starting technology: lust for vengence)>>4261644There is a large scale tournament which narrowly the wall guys win over the water guys. It goes out of hand when a fire guy accuses a water to be the thing that PUTS OUT water, and that is thus unholy. To prove that this is bull patooty, the winner of the tournament, Aaaargh, throws a pot of water onto the holy flame, almost extinguishing it. General tumoltiousness follows and Aaaargh is almost expelled. The water cult is seen with great suspicion.(New technology: Putting out fire. New problem: Discrimination)>>4261659The stones with yellow bits in them are cut into a pointy shape and then put unto spears. They're not as sharp or durable as normal rock spears, but at least there are little bits of yellow in there which is great. A squad is outfitted with them and they are sent against the Lur. It turns ugly quickly. The ore-spears break on the Drill Lur's hide, which has apparently made a nest in the mine, having attracted a mate. Five out of the seven Ursus sent in are torn to bits, and the spears yanked out of the hands of the remaining. (lost resource: most of the copper ore). What's worse, the tunneling of the female as it gathers rock for the nest is threatening the structural integrity of the caves! if the kiln is destroyed, nobody knows how to rebuild it because the knowledge has been lost!>>4261663The house, the Karakkatta realize, must be big. Very big. It must be such a big house, let me tell you about how big that house will be. So they start meassuring out a foundation. A thousand bears in diameter should suffice?

In the process, they accidentally domesticate Fuzz Crawlers. Nobody is quite sure how it happens, but the things bounce around happily in their camp now. (gained resource: ten fuzz crawlers. Gained technology: Domestication)>>4261908The Lamentos prepare to attack again. This time, they are sure not to make mistakes. They get twelve able bodied Ursus as a front line, and six behind if needed, give them the proven spears and shields, forgoing slings. This is the ultimate task force. They storm the mine and are confronted with not the worm their brethrens left, but one grown much larger. The female has attracted a rival mate, and it's one of the largest Drill Lur the Lamentos have ever seen. After bloody battle, they leave it injured, but their front line massacred (lost 8 Ursus). In panic, the survivors huddle around the kiln, deconstructing it and bringing the remains into the main hall. But as they stack clay blocks on top of each other they realize that nobody has the knowledge to rebuild it.(lost the kiln, gained a bunch of clay bricks)>>4261913The Rational Thought Gang now dictates the building of houses and roads, but is informed by the masses that there is a law against it, inconviniently imortalized in writing. The RTG's protestations that the law was predicated on Phk's being the ruler of the tribe falls on deaf ears. The law is inscribed. No roads nor houses may be built. In fact, some Claw members fear that the RTG would do somethinga s heinous as destroy the record of the law, and so under the shadow of the night, they go out every night to carve it into stones and rocks all around the campsite, so that it can be found many miles away.

Curious, the two groups try to communicate (Discovered: The Bloo!Blergh). There, in a refuse pile, they also find a whole bunch of metal shards. (Gained: 20 worm scales)The Martial artists in the tribe try to reconcile the differences in the population: The water dancers, they say, only meant well. Leave them in peace, they say. But as the general populace threatens to turn against the others too now, who have aligned themselves with the anti-fire-heathens (as the water martial artists are considered), the Wall- and Fire- martial artists quickly change their tune and participate in the discrimination.>>4261927Gained Problem: Fusilbee-shit-based sickness

(Lost: 1 adult, gained: 1 Cripple). They sell their planks of wood to the rollers, as the Lamentos have completely different problems right now, and get some food and tools for it. The real kicker though is that they have exported culture.>>4262180Once again, the Bloo!Blergh try to mess with their trees. Once again, it's a bad idea (lost 2 small trees).

They have to find another heat source.On the other hand, thanks to the mountain's cold climate, food no longer evaporates, which is quite handy, as it means heat can now be applied constructively to it. Some bored kids decide to try and evaporate a whole Hopper carcass in a bowl of firebush juice.Rolling for finding flammable materials in the Moo-ooo's mountain, creating soup
>>4262306A couple of the elders try to bring back peace because they realize that civil wars are retarded.

The sick themselves, meanwhile, keep shitting and puking all over the construction site, and thus delay the great hut's completion.Some of the gumdrop trees found by Karakatta produce a curious sap instead of fruit, one that causes mild diarrhea but is a great adhesive.

>>4264034>>4264093The mining process goes extremely well, thanks to the pickaxes the Lumor "borrowed" from Lamentos. The fruits of the miners's labor are however miniscule - the rocks in their mine are brittle and powdery, not fit for making tools.(gained technology: pickaxes)(gained special resource: one mine)The ruler of Lumor, Qofkly, has performed an advanced surgical procedure, known as "just shove the thing in and ignore the pain". In a matter of weeks, the arm's old, crumbling shell recedes and it's ashen orange is replaced with glossy grey and black, punctuated by bright, shining red. This is truly an awe-inspiring act.(gained resource: third arm)[ARTIFACTS GERMINATED - 2/42]>>4264076>>4264276The Moo-ooo's mine is much more lucrative than the Lumor's - it is filled with black, flammable rocks. Negotiations end abruptly when the ambassador of the mine refugees gets a fistful of demon through his stomach.Back at the mountain's base, engravings become popular - everyone wants their exploits immortalized on a bowl or plate.(gained technology: engraving)(gained special resource: coal mine)Joustlers might be fast, but the skeleton tribe are smart(kinda) and many(relatively). a fine feast is enjoyed that day, and spirits are lifted. One man attempts to make sandwiches, but is disillusioned when he remembers that Raptyrs can't consume solid food and feed solely on viscera melted by the dripping their acidic saliva.>>4264262The cooperation idea is taken well by both sides; the nearer forest tribes join up with Bloo!blergh.(gained 3 extra settlements, ~100 people each)A lumber camp is estabilished as well, finally allowing Rollers to get wood without sacrificing their own trees.

Rolled 6 (1d20)There are drills around that have long, rigid tongues and little sensitive nubs on the ends of their aendeges. By pressing on those nubs with their tongues, they can communicate, and they are therefore more social.

They try to domesticate them as beasts of burden, war, or whatever else they might be useful for. (+1 for evo!)
>>4267312The rational thought gang is not simply a unified collective attempting to rationalize everything.The rational thought gang has many factions who believe in different forms of rational thought.However, there are three major factions which will be covered here.The factions names are the Grough, the Haak and the Uro.Let us start with the grough.The grough.The Grough is a commune believing that since nature created us, it should be our job to help nature.They are quite simple in their thought but unified in their ideals, a trait not shared by the other factions.The Grough regularly plant trees and plants, feed animals and support renewable technology.They participate in rational thought, but they are the least participating of all the factions.The haak.The haak believe that our job is to help each other, culminating in a society of helpful people.They believe that society should have some amount of laws but their ideals are split in two.One faction believes that our society should simply have rules against hurting others directly or indirectly, and the RTG doesn't need any other lawsOthers believe in a defined law system to help people in helping each other.They are very vocal in their rational thought and usually get into fierce debates with the uro.The uroThe uro believe that the only obligation of fleeder-kind is to not hurt one another and a fleeder can do whatever they want otherwise.The uro believe in an anarchic world with only laws against injuring anotherThey are split into two subgroups as well, with one believing in trade between fleeders, and the other believing in pure isolationismAll these factions cooperate due to their goals not being mutually exclusive, but there is no love between the haak and uroFor now, the Grough have not picked a side, but elders are deliberating.Some say that the only way to help nature is to build a society around it, but others say only lawlessness can truly help societyFor now, they are impartial, however.
Rolled 17 (1d20)>>4267274A group of fire, wall, steam and water cultists are sick of the bloodshed caused by the civil war, and attempt to organize a peace meeting between the elders and the water masters
Rolled 15 (1d20)>>4269430one in the group speaks up, noting that there was no bloodshed yet, other than the water style fighters beating up people once. They explain that this gathering right now is happening a turn or two before the things that caused it.
>>4269443What about the rebel water cultists killing loyalist steam and water cultists? Or did I misunderstand and they just got beaten up?
>>4269538they beat up people to show them how good their fighting style was. but because beforehand they had already been made suspect, people felt like they shouldn't do that and that they may be better off without the water cultists, who only recently were responsible for almost extinguishing the flame.

Corraling them is a pain in the ass, as unlike the bigger lurs they cannot be steered by being slapped softly. The Rollers will need some sort of Lur lure to get them to the village.>>4267312The rational thought gang makes a breakthrough - they can make fuzz crawler hair into twine, and twine into rope - which is then tipped with a sharp rock, making a whip or flail.(gained technology: twine, rope, whips)Housing is not constructed, as the former disciples still object to the creation of architecture.>>4267319A sizable tribe of nomads from the west joins up with the Eeeee. They are not well versed in Scree-claw technology, but they bring with them supplies and a new religion, and are not opposed to infrastructure like SOME people.(gained new religious figure: the angry mountain; a great mountain that rained fire on the fleeder tribes of the west, forcing them to flee east)Trade with the rational thought gang goes so well, that the rational thought gang decides to set up permanent camp in Eeeee.>>4267336The riverside villagers now live in small stone huts, with leather roofs propped up by wooden poles. To create the roofs, they stitch together the skins of multiple Grazers. One Fleeder had the bright idea to use a grazer skin to catch fish, and thus "net" fishing was discovered.(gained technology: houses, stitching, "net"fishing)
>>4267303>>4267325>>4269430>>4269443>>4269576The idea to stop the ban on ideas is rejected for obvious reasons.The council of elders attempts to end the civil war by stifling and suppressing the water and steam cultists; their faith is outlawed, and Cussehm is publicly executed along with his family. This, surprisingly, only makes the dissidents fight harder, and fight smarter.(steam/water cultists gain technology: guerilla warfare)Thankfully, a group of concerned martial artists manage to defuse the situation before things get bloody, and get the two sides to enter diplomatic talks. A shaky peace is estabilished, for now...The executors were unable to intercept the peace talks. Additionally, the elder council has found the executioners to be guilty of corruption, using the political climate to steal the goods of their fellow anguis unsuspected. The current legal system is clearly flawed, and is in line for some major revision...>>4267283>>4267291The construction goes slowly, as the water worshippers are worse builders than wall worshippers, and moving materials to and from the island is rather difficult without any kind of vehicles; nevertheless, they manage to keep great secrecy, with very little suspicions being raised.[Fortress progress - 1/5]Whips are created from carefully cut, thin strips of leather, and are a great way to get a one-up over the water gang's enemies. Unfortunately the ban on ideas is still in play, and so the whips can only be made in secrecy.(gained technology: whips)The heligrazers prove to be difficult to import, but it doesn't matter anyway - the water style gang uncovers much better pets from a cave they find on the island; fluid as water and dark as night, they could be eaten to the bone, only to come back the next day as if nothing transpired.[ARTIFACTS GERMINATED -3/42]

>>4270138Lost knowledge of rope; due to this, some technologies are in short supply.Bloo!blergh event: a crawler named Sloo! has taken it upon himself to catalogue the fine achievements of his race; the wealth of Bloo!blergh knowledge has been compiled into a whole series of clay tablets, displayed proudly at the town hall for all to see and study. Several new technologies are deduced during this compilation, such as pickaxes and properly cooked meat, and added alongside the earlier inventions.Their knowledge far above the rest of the races and their population booming, the Crawlers are on the cusp of exiting stone age.CURRENT MAJOR HAPPENINGS:Bloo!blergh: Staying In Control; with their population now encompassing 6 settlements, the Crawlers must find a way to keep the lands united in knowledge and ideals.Lumor: The Gathering; Qofkly has been receiving strange dreams lately, absurd colors and shapes telling of many riches, scattered across the world; if only he could have them all, he would surely be the most prosperous Ursa in the world...Anguis: The CBT Man; in these trying times, an old nomad has come to the Walled Town; claiming to be a prophet from the south, he teaches bizzare rituals to the public, involving harm to oneself and to loved ones...Tikku and Scree Claw Clan: The Contact; strange shapes have been sighted in the tundra lately - purple like bears, yet travelling atop a large tail rather than legs.

And by his junk I mean his face. With a fist. TO the face. Being bigger than the assailants and hardened by decades of life in the tundra, he puts up quite a fight - but numbers prevail over raw strength. One assassin, formerly a fire style fighter disgraced by his adultery and reduced to beating people up for food, has lost both of his eyes to the old man's claws; the other, a greedy deadbeat who'd do anything but work for riches, lost his left upper arm, torn cleanly off the shoulder.The public, of course, knows nothing of their former lives - all they see is two valiant water style members, ridding society of a dangerous new influencer. The water gang thus gains two new leaders, and a newfound wave of public support.(gained +40 water cult followers and two leaders.

Infected Roller coagulations bear few children, as the bacteria consumes them while they are still in their planktonic embryonal stage.(gained problem: STD)Attempts to recreate roller tools are a monumental failure; when taken apart, the tools suddenly turn into rocks and sticks, which are good tools on their own, but worse than Bloo!blergh tools.(gained problem: failure to understand the concept of tool making)>>4270235>>4271207Observing a stone disk rolling across the floor, one Ursa is suddenly hit by an amazing idea: what if we make this rolling motion help us move stuff around? After an initial attempt to make a stone barrel and stuff valuables in there ended up a failure due to being difficult to control and difficult to carve, the Lumor settled for stone carts; propelled by one or two Ursas pulling it by it's twin handles, it can transfer goods in great quantities.(gained technology: wheels, carts)The expedition only finds a little brown shiny ore and middling stone before they are accosted by a worm; their pickaxes and axes manage to slay it, but the expedition is forced to return early due to injuries.[1/2]

>>4272078The old poritur, master of the flame style, is very very sick about the ban on ideas. So he gathers up as many citizens as he can and gives a speech:“Fellow Anguis, why are we doing this? Why do we kill our brothers for trying to help us? Why do we stick to our old ways when everyone else around us grows stronger and ever more dangerous? Why are we uselessly killing our own children in the name of a law made by the Fleeders as if it was made by the great ones themselves? What is the difference between when our ancestors invented the art of carving to when our brothers discover how to plant fruits? Stop this madness people of Anguis, chosen of the gods. Use your sharp minds, not your quick instincts, and don’t kill your brother for trying to help you”
Rolled 4, 1, 12 = 17 (3d20)>>4272095>>4272078Having weirdly lost three villages of like-minded individuals before they had even really joined, the people of Bloo!Blergh are all in agreement that something strange is going on. Three great rollers, each of which had gotten a statue only recently, propose different strategies. A young roller called Shmerg who had gotten a statue for talking just so dang digitty good that if you were talking with him in mind you're gonna always say the truth even if your lying, proposes a unifying project: the greatest structure of all time, a great ziggurath with hanging gardens should be built. It would be a guiding light and a beacon for rollers to flock to. He asks for materials and builders.Snoofloo, the ancient wall builder, who has gotten a statue because he threatened to kill the sculptor if he wouldn't make it, has a different perspective. He says the kind approach was the problem. A strong military should be formed, with drills, formations, standardized equipment and maybe even leather shields should be formed. Force will keep the peace.Lastly Sloo, the scribe, who has gotten a statue so he could write the index for his library on it for rollers to more easily find what they are looking for, says none of the above is the solution: Instead, he says laws should be made, written down, and enforced. One roller, he says, should be the arbitrator of those laws, and sole decider on the tribe's fate. Centralization will bring unity.Rolling for each project.

Rolled 5 (1d20)>>4272078>>4272095After the worst generations anybody could have, the Lamentos orgnaically have evolved a tradition of lamenting songs, mourning hymns which chronicle the terrible events in their past.These hymns have a very rigid rhyme structure and thus cannot easily be changed in the retelling: Any change to the wording would immidiately be conspicuous.If any information pertinent to technology or cultural achievments would be included in any of those songs, it would enter the cultural conscience of the lamentos and could be recalled in detail in ritual singing.

The attempts to catch Bloo!blergh rollers are a resounding failure - despite the Stridaz's stature and might, the smaller Crawlers had managed to defeat them with some sort of big rock they carry around that parries blows, and a long brown arm that throws rocks even farther than Stridaz do.

They also retrieve roots this way and become omnivores.>>4274954In Bloo!blergh, an, as of yet non-bloody, power struggle is occuring. Sloo! has written up some laws everybody is pretty much okay with: There shall be an ultimate instance of law, a person (or ball) which has final say over what laws are to be inacted. Murder is outlawed, taking stuff when you don't need it, or when it belongs to someone important is outlawed, Work regimes are standardized. The question of who shall be at the top of this pyramid, it is presumed, will be resolved by the nameless villages: Whoever manages to reintegrate their labor force will surely have such strong backing that the other two will back down to their respective specialities. Shmerg's strategy has not changed. He thinks the ziggurath will be a sign to the rollers to unite under the oppressive might of a power which can build such a wonder. He sends to the first village an invitation to inspect the building site, and the statue of old Snoofloo, with the explanation that it will make any structure sturdier it gazes on. (first roll)Shmerg meanwhile draws up a set of laws with some positives to the villages. It promises gardens, houses, and at least one statue of a local to every settlement in the tribe. He also comissions a road to be built to his village (second roll)!Plop gets ogether his strongest friends and goes out to smash in the faces of the strongest guys in his village, to show them who's boss (third roll)Whoever will get their village into the tribe, or if multiple will, whoever does it best, will be first king.
