Nice work, looks good.

Animagus can only have 1.0 x Int base language points, due to his upbringing.

Also, I'm going to be online only erratically for the next week or so.

Feel free to game on. Gross is hereby promoted to acting story-teller.

Sorry, that it took so long, but here are the languages of Animagus:

4+1.0 = 5 [+3 extra character points] 8

European Basic = 3
Wolf Language 5*

Unified Tribe is the language of the tribe that we are now, right? Or. Should I replace this with European Basic?

*If it is okay. Well...It fits more to the background of Animagus.

Unified Tribe is the language of the current tribe - I made European Basic in the same vein as The Lost Boy's Imperial, so Basic is the common language of the European Tribes like Imperial is the common language of the southern empire

Animagus grew up with wolves, so you can decide how much of Basic, Wolf, and Unified he knows, unless you've got an idea of his starting tribal language too.

Great work guys.

I'm hoping to be back online soon.

Don't give up on me yet.

Is it at all possible to join this game after all your progress? I'd promise to read it all through. It is of course ok to say no - I understand you've come a long way and grown accustomed to eachothers way of playing. I just find your game interesting and would like to join in, is all.

I don't mind you hopping in. If there's a majority of the current players in favor, it should be no problem.

Also, these two new characters, Migo and Dagga;

I made them genuinely, as in, they've got no direct plot to harm the Tribe (though, people are known to do funny things when faced with death). They're not specifically my characters, they're NPC's anyone can use.

Please do join in, WB. I had planned on it being an open game.

Sterling work, guys.

Gross, you're bang on schedule stealing my thoughts. It's uncanny.

Please continue to act as story-teller for the time being. I will write up a new character sheet for my player character. Haethor will reappear years or decades in the future but is gone for now.

Epic battle, btw, really entertaining.

Is it possible to play as a Homo Sapiens? I'm thinking in the lines of Homo Sapiens Idaltu.

Of course. Any old homonid is welcome, as well as any other vaguely prosocial beasty, like protoelephants and protodogs.

As far as I know, neanderthal is a kind of H sapiens, just not quite Cro Magnon which, according to my greatgrandmother's Reader's Digest atlas, can be identified because they wear a suit and tie.

Let's see then...

Sul
Sul is a Lost Boy outcast who managed to survive his squadrons slaughter by staying the fuck away from the Thunderbolt warriors. He's looking for a new group of people to live with. He will gradually work his way into the Unified Tribe. Sul is an outsider because of his mixed inheritage (part Neanderthal, part Sapiens Sapiens) which makes him unable to wed, and thus without future, back in the Empire.

Abilities
STR: 6
BDY: 4
DXT: 6
WPR: 2
INT: 4
CHR: 3
(50 chr points)

Skills
Melee (Spear): 6 = 5(7)
Throwing (Net): 6 = 5(7)
Hand to hand (Wrestling): 4 = 3(5)
Athletics (Running): 6 = 5(7)
Survival: 4
Dodge: 6
Stealth (Move silently): 6 = 5(7)
Stealth (Hiding): 6 = 5(7)
Negotiate (Decieve): 3 = 2(4)
Crafting (Tools): 4 = 3(5)
Tracking (Humans): 6 = 5(7)
Orienteering (East Africa): 4 = 3(5)
Superstition (Counter-cursing): 2 = 1(3)
(67 chr points)

Languages
Imperial: 3
Native Plateu: 3
Basic European: 3
(6 free lng points + 3 chr points)

He has a stone tipped spear, a net and leather clothing for gear.

Tell me if I've done anything wrong so that I can correct it.

I was actually wondering how it is with birth rituals at this time. Should it be a combination with the rituals of Animagus and Cecilia? Or one of the two?

The ritual is the same as nowadays: secret womens' business. One day the women will disappear for a few days and then, if you're lucky, they'll all come back with a healthy baby.

This would be true of wolves as well. Your job as husband/father is to feed, sooth and then stand well back for the midwives.

The only ritual role for Animagus is that of an ordinary, confused and anxious father-to-be.

Speaking of rituals and babies: The infant of Fat Mama is now a toddler and therefore a person, and thus needs a name. Also, Choon, Otro's new apprentice, is nearing manhood and needs a rite of passage at some point.

P.s. There is no character named Cecilia, except a brief reference made to animagus old sweetheart in his home tribe.

The Dancing Girl, Lengesu, is, I think, the one you mean. However, being the alpha, you can call her whatever you like and she just has to accept it. Old school.

Well, I'd like a few years time-skip in the story here, guys, so some of the seeds we've planted can grow.

What do you do while a part of a mega-tribe on warfooting on the eurasian steppes for five or ten years?

Politics, technology or military projects should be spelled out now, please.

EXAMPLE: Haethor grows up, gets kicked out of home, kicks ass with star-iron tusks and moves in to a new herd as an alpha bull. Of course, he never forgets.

Anytime you're ready.

Did H. sapiens kill your parents?

Choose the bat totem because H. sapiens are a cowardly and superstitious lot?

Invent all of your gadgets yourself using the power of childhood trauma?

Seriously, you're welcome so long as it's not pure absurdity. Moderate absurdity is fine.

PS. actually Choon might grow up to be batman. He was orphaned and is now the heir of the inventor.

There is also a pet monkey named Nuisance which you can play without too much backstory ;)

Great work, everyone!

Now, sooner or later, there's going to have to be a small-party sortie into the heart of the empire, a la Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, etc.

Only with the side mission of our heroes can the good guys win the overall war. Obviously.

Soo, OOC, I suggest assassinating &/or holding hostage the Empress &/or Nago. Nago and his army could also be a party to betraying the empire. A revolution to depose the matriarchy with a theocrasy.

The quickest way to Africa is by sea, and Senko has yet to display his particular skills.

I apologise if you all would prefer more input from me as we go, but I always remember rule one of game-mastering: Let the players play.

Let there be 10 karma points for everyone.

Although you are a latecomer, Wolfsbane, you will have earned your xp by smiting the spambots.

Does everyone understand the 3rd ed. shadowrun rules for spending karma?

Okay.

For skills less than or equal to ability score, 1.5 x (next level) = karma cost.

So, raising tracking from 4 to 5 = 5 x 1.5 = 8 karma. Always round up.

For skills above ability score, 2.0 x (next level).
So, raising athletics from 5 to 6 (where body < 6) = 6 x 2 = 12 karma.

For abilities, 2.0 x (next level).
So, raising Intelligence from 6 to 7 = 7 x 2 = 14 karma.

It's complex, but what the hey. I think it's fun to upgrade character sheets. If you don't enjoy it, don't bother.

Oh, and for language/knowledge skills, karma = next level.
So, to raise language A from zero to five = 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 = 15 karma.

I was wondering about which boats they began to use in this era. Still hollow tree chunks, or are they smart enough to make wooden ones now? Oh. I find it interesting to go on adventure in the Empire of The Nose-Stealers.

Edit: There is one in the other thread called TeresaSwan. Could you be so kind to remove that post?

Edit1: Before I make a mistake. How is the Vision Quest of Otro? Physical (like going to the top of a mountain to find the answers by a guru) or in a trance through meditation omand/or mushrooms?

I reckon there's no evidence of boats in this era, but we're acting as though whatever can be done probably was done.

I rule that massive canoes carved out of single tree-trunks are the batteships of the day, but... Senko will have knowledge of the polynesian-style catamarans with the crab-claw sail; about as efficient a craft as it is possible to make. Still carved from trees rather than planks, but high-tech even when compared to european ships of three centuries ago.

Agree. What about my question about the Vision Quest? Because I want to be sure before I react to this.
