How do you want to deal with this situation?
I'll abstain on this one, but basically A will push us towards understanding the world around us, B will push us towards understanding ourselves, and C won't really do anything in particular.

How do you want to deal with this situation?
A) Follow the ideas of the adult female and believe that divine spirits lack genders. -I just feel this would be better

How do you want to deal with this situation?
E) Lose the social hierarchy, and have everyone eat as much as they need, saving the rest. -I'd prefer it if the very young, very old, very ill, and the pregnant could eat first, followed by the hunters and then everyone else, but if that isn't an option then this would probably be best.

How do you wish to advance technology? (22 Production Points)

A) Start experimenting with which rock shapes are more effective for dropping down at prey. (Military +) 4
E) Continue trying to weaving together thin leaves and/or bark. (Economy +) 3
F) Start trying to find which material works best for catching the sparks. (Science +) 8
G) Start experimenting with medicinal herbs and plants, to see which one relieves pain or helps heal the young adult male’s wound. (Science +) 5
H) Start piling soft foliage on top of branches over spaces in the tree branches, to make better shelter. (Growth +) 4
-We've already got a decent amount of points in where to hit enemies, so let's develop our aerial bombardment techniques. The thin leaves can be used to make various things, not least of which include bags and bowls, which will help us to carry more resources. Fire is pretty self explanatory, and IMO anything that will help speed up our growth, thus increasing our minuscule numbers, is an absolute necessity, so we should definitely increase our shelter.

How do you wish to further our culture? (12 Culture Points)
A) Start using sharp rocks to carve wood. (Culture +) 4
C) Develop individual names for each member of the tribe. (Culture +) 1
E) Develop a tribe name to unite the members of the tribe. (Culture +) 1
F) Begin trying to develop a spoken language by making different sounds for different objects. (Culture +) 6

The wood carving is our first step towards a written language and sculpting, plus there's a chance that the experience in carving wood will carry over to making tools and weapons. Since we only need one point for names (right?), and being able to distinguish who we're referring to greatly speeds up communication we should definitely develop individual names, and developing a tribe name will help with unity. As for beginning a spoken language, I think its pretty self-explanatory.

What do you wish to do? 5 Working Members
E) Start collecting stones and rocks from the shores of the lake. (Resources +) Young Adult Female #1
----- V) Collect small and sharp stones.
----- VI) Collect large and dull stones.
F) Collect large, broad leaves from various foliage. (Resources +) Young Adult Male #1
H) Send out a hunting party for small game. (Food +) Adult Male #1
I) Send out gatherers to bring back edible fruit and leaves. (Food +) Adult Female #1
L) Send out tribe members to collect the medicinal pale green ferns for the wounded male. Adult Male #2

The large, dull rocks can be used for aerial bombardment, while the small, sharp ones can be used for woodworking. As the young adult female knows a bit about woodworking, she would have idea about which kind of small sharp rocks would work best. We can use the large leaves to help build shelters and wrap food, and as the young male is wounded, we shouldn't be making him do anything overly strenuous, meaning that leaf collection is perfect for him. The adult male is our best hunter, so obviously he would be best for hunting small game. The adult female can tell instantly if a fruit is poisonous or not, so she would obviously be best for gathering fruit. We need to get the young male back in top shape as soon as possible, so we should get some more medicine. As the other adult male is our resident herb expert, he should get the medicine.

That's the correct way to vote. Thanks, Seb. And yes, names cost one point. Excess is carried over to language.

Uh, guys? Everything has a cost. The PP and CP beside them are simply the points you've already invested. Remember, you need to invest points until they are done. You don't know their limits, but I do. I put excess points toward other things.

Everyone needs to revote.

OH! *smacks self on head* That makes much more sense

The tribe scaled a massive tree in the rainforest grove that they had been calling home, clutching the left-over Gigadon flesh from their last hunt. As they sat around gnawing off large chunks of flesh, they began grunting at each other, forming noises and trying to communicate vocally. Some of these noises formed into words and names.

As the Crystalli's language matured into individual names, they began thinking of unity for their tribe. Another debate followed, their language maturing while they discussed what their tribe name would be. Their grunts were now more structured and longer. They were the beginnings of a complex language. [Language +5]
-------------------------------------------------------
What do you want the tribe name to be?
A) Risnum Achil (Nature Guardians)
B) Ardkin Achil (Nature Friends)
C) Eldrr Tanelm (Tree Spirits)
D) Chyran Tanelm (Tree Sages)
E) Tonn Eldrr (Spirit Herders)
F) Suggest another tribe name, and have them accept it.
G) None of the above and keep debating names.

The Crystalli - Chyran Tanelm Tribe
-------------------------------------------------------
Tribe Description: The Chyran Tanelm, roughly translating to Tree Sages, are a ragged collection of Crystalli separated from their various families and tribes. There are three males and three females, one of which is pregnant. The only general look that the tribe members share are a gaunt, muscular leanness.
Spoken Language: The Chyran Tanelm have developed some structure to their grunts, though they still need to be accompanied by hand motion so that others can understand.
Written Language: The Chyran Tanelm have no concept of writing.
Current Area: Flooded Jungle
The flooded jungle is an unrelentingly humid rainforest where most of the ground is covered in water, from inch-deep puddles to forty-foot deep lakes. A wide variety of flora and fauna thrive in the jungle’s various levels – the canopies, the ground, and the water. All main clades of animals are represented well here save birds. Bony-headed amphibians dwell in the shallower regions of the lake, carnivorous fish swim in the depths, and mammals and reptiles populate the higher reaches of the jungle.
Current Location: Lake Fringe
A strand of trees overlook a shallow cliff leading to one of the jungle’s many deep lakes. Moss overgrows nearly everything here, but sunlight is plentiful due to widely spaced trees. Small reptiles and amphibians are abundant, preying on even more abundant insects. The largest creatures here are predatory amphibious synapsids and reptiles and fish deeper inside the lake.
Religion: The Chyran Tanelm have an animistic/polytheistic religion, believing that there are a number of spirits embodying different emotions. These spirits have male and female genders and are found in all of nature, from rocks to trees.
Magic: The Chyran Tanelm have very little understanding of magic, and only one of the tribe members has enough influence to control it at all. They believe the magic stems from the spirits of their religion.
Customs & Culture: The Chyran Tanelm have respect for every member of their tribe, no matter their age and gender. At mealtimes, the food is either clustered in the middle or passed around to each member of the tribe, who each eat as much as they need.

-------------------------------------------------------
Rothourn/b] – Rothourn is the unofficial leader of the Chyran Tanelm. He carries himself with a royal elegance, his stance majestic. He is an excellent hunter, utilizing both tactics and physical strength to subdue even large and dangerous prey, like the gigadon. He has mated with Sayak and now has an unborn child inside of her. His only other family in the Chyran Tanelm is Etash, his son.
[b]Health:
●●●●●
Age: 36
Hunting: ●●●●●
Risthere – Risthere is the eldest of the Chyran Tanelm, though still fit enough to assist in the gigadon hunts. His most valuable asset is his knowledge of medicinal herblore, which has healed many wounds, both light and serious. He has a strong friendship with Erera.
Health: ●●●●●
Age: 43
Hunting: ●●●●
Herblore: ●●●●●
Erera – Erera is the mother of Myre and has a loving, if somewhat overbearing attitude towards her daughter. She has a sensitive nose that has proved priceless to the tribe, since she can usually tell whether the fruit or leaf in question is edible or not. She is also the most in tune with the spirits out of all of Chyran Tanelm, and can control magic enough to lift leaves and small branches.
Health: ●●●●●
Age: 35
Magic: ●●●●
Woodworking: ●●●●
Sayak – Sayak is an older adult, and the mother of Rothourn’s unborn child. She is a caring female with a gentle attitude, though has little in the way of skills. Swollen with the unborn child, she is unable to help the tribe and needs more food than usual.
Health: ●●●● (Pregnant)
Age: 37
Nurturing: ●●●●
Etash – Etash is a bright young hunter, the son of Chyran Tanelm’s makeshift leader, Rothourn. He has a keen eye and is an excellent hunter, though a leg injury has caused him to limp of late. He has a crush on Myre, though is too shy to act on it.
Health: ●●●● (Leg Injury)
Age: 19
Hunting: ●●●●
Myre – Myre is the daughter of Erera, and is the youngest of the tribe. With a light frame and soft, sheen feathers, she’d be considered beautiful by many. She has a crush on Etash, though is too shy to act on it. At night, she has a habit of gazing at the stars, which has given her an excellent sense of direction.
Health: ●●●●●
Age: 17
Astronomy: ●●●●●

-------------------------------------------------------
The next morning was an eventful one, and an important event in the tribe’s history. The tribe members woke up in a panic to a surprised-sounding roar. Erera, the most religious of the tribe’s members and the mother of Myre, was standing up with a mixture of surprise and amazement in each of her three eyes. Seeing the arrival of the others, she quickly pointed at the large puddle near her feet. Three leaves were floating on its surface. Seeing nothing out of the ordinary, Rothourn grunted at her quizzically.

“Look!” She grunted back.

Etash and Myre looked at each other briefly, both sharing the same confusion that the other tribe members had. Erera changed her body stance, giving the small puddle the full brunt of her attention. Her three eyes stared down the puddle, and her body relaxed. With an upward motion of her arm, the three floating leaves in the puddle flew gently upward, as if by a gust of wind. Guided by Erera’s hand, the three leaves blew gently into the jungle canopy. When they were out of sight Erera collapsed, breathing heavily.

“It take lot of energy. Hard. But spirits help. Show me how to do.” she grunted at the other tribe members.

The other tribe members were amazed. They had just witnessed magic, though had no understanding of it other than that it was derived from their religion and the spirits embodying their emotions.

Now that the spirits were influencing their lives more directly, the tribe members were more inclined to think about them. Still a new religion, many details have yet to have been hammered out, and varying schools of thought collided in the tribe. First of all, the crystalli had different ideas of how many spirits there were in total, and the varying levels of their importance. Rothourn said that there must be countless dozens flowing throughout nature, while Etash said that it would make sense that there were a few, a pantheon of spirits. Myre took both aspects of their ideas and said that there were many dozens of spirits, though there was a set pantheon of a few major spirits who ruled over the lesser spirits.

-------------------------------------------------------
How do you want to deal with this situation?
A) Follow Rothourn’s thought path, and believe that there are multitudes of small, lesser spirits.
B) Follow Etash’s thought path, and believe that there are a pantheon of powerful god-like spirits.
C) Follow Myre’s thought path, and believe that there a pantheon of powerful god-like spirits ruling over multitudes of small, lesser spirits.
D) Suggest another idea to the tribe, and have them accept it as truth.
-------------------------------------------------------
Before the last debate was even resolved, another one rose up. The tribe knew that the spirits were associated with different emotions, but how they were affiliated was never addressed. Erera said that the spirits came into the world under their sphere of emotion already, and would be affiliated with that emotion for the rest of their ethereal lives. Risthere volunteered his idea that the spirits were pliable, and switched their emotional allegiance often and at their own whims. They were free to chose which sphere of emotion they wanted to reside in, but could switch at anytime. Myre, always the peacemaker, once again made a compromise in between the ideas. She said that spirits came into the world without an emotional allegiance, but once they decided they could not switch back.
-------------------------------------------------------
How do you want to deal with this situation?
A) Follow Erera’s thought path, and believe that spirits came into the world under one emotion and never changed.
B) Follow Risthere’s thought path, and believe that spirits were free to choose which emotion they wanted to align themselves with, and changed at their whims.
C) Follow Myre’s thought path, and believe that spirits came into the world without an emotional allegiance, but made a permanent decision once they decided.
D) Suggest another idea to the tribe, and have them accept it as truth.
-------------------------------------------------------
There was no shortage of religion-related questions, as the next one came up. Erera, though she understood the spirits the most, still didn’t have a way to definitely identify what was an emotion and what wasn’t an emotion.
-------------------------------------------------------
What do you want to classify as an major emotion affecting the spheres of magic? Choose as many as needed.
A) Anger
B) Hate
C) Joy
D) Sadness
E) Lust
F) Hunger
G) Thirst
H) Disgust
I) Surprise
J) Fear
K) Pain
L) All of the above.
M) Suggest another list of emotions of the tribe, and have them accept that.
-------------------------------------------------------
The tribe eventually settled down and drifted apart to do their various activities, all of them low-key after the morning’s excitement. Myre went to the lakeshore to collect rocks for woodcarving and for dropping onto enemies as directed by Etash. She toyed with their shapes while she was alone, and found that small and sharp rocks were best for woodcarving, while following Etash’s advice by collecting large and dull stones. Etash, unable to hunt because of his leg wound, spent a lonely afternoon gathering large broad leaves for the use of the tribe. Rothourn didn’t want to risk a gigadon hunt without the help of his son, so instead went to hunt small prey by the lakeside. Erera explored the jungle for edible fruits and leaves to assist the tribe, and Risthere went to look for more of the pale green ferns to help Etash heal.

Risthere wandered the grounds near the jungle, wading through waterlogged areas and swimming through areas so flooded that they resembled mangroves more than jungles. He mainly found the ferns he was looking for in the pits of trees and their branches, where rainwater pooled. As he climbed a particularly muddy hill, he saw a stiff-leaved plant whose scent intrigued him. Risthere waded through the waist-deep water (5 or 6 feet for an average crystalli) to harvest it. His instincts told him it had medicinal properties, so he found three more and carried them back to the home-grove.

Myre was the first to finish her duties, and deposited her load of rocks between two large tree roots before checking up on Sayak. She was asleep on a makeshift nest consisting of various soft-textured foliage, apparently sleeping peacefully. Without anything else to do, Myre grabbed two thin vines and played with them idly in her hands. Without knowing it, she was discovering the technology of weaving, though her effort achieved nothing but a poorly made rope with questionable durability. Still, it was a start.

As night fell, the rest of the tribe returned from their various activities. Rothourn carried a handful of dead triangle-headed amphibians, each varying from one to three feet long. Erera had an armful of fruits. There were small pink fruits sprouting long yellow hairs from their thick pink rind, and large yellow-orange ovals resembling mangoes. This meal of amphibian flesh, tropical fruit, and left over gigadon meat was enough for all of the tribe, who passed around the fruit and flesh until they were all sated. There were some pink fruits left, which Erera left on a branch for tomorrow. Content with their full stomachs, the tribe began socializing and building up their language. Language +5]

The idea of a name to unite the small tribe soon came up, and after playing around with some suggestions, one suggestion was selected above the rest. It roughly translated to the wise ones of the tall plant, or the Tree Sages. Rothourn, Etash, Sayak, Erera, Risthere, and Myre. The Chyran Tanelm.

As the others began taking off to their various sleeping places around the grove, Rothourn again tried to start a fire, succeeding in creating a spark which leaped to a dry branch nearby. The spark didn’t go out, but the humidity in the air kept it from igniting into a flame, and once again the fire failed to bloom.

The entire tribe was asleep by sunset, save for Erera. She was thinking about the spirits and the magic she controlled this morning. Holding a piece of wood and small sharp rock, she began carving lines in the wood, out of boredom more than anything. As she unwittingly carved, her mind began pondering on how to again control the magic. She didn’t remember how she did it that morning…it just seemed to flow out of her naturally.

-------------------------------------------------------
How do you want to cast magic?
A) Have the caster become a spellsinger, singing in an ethereal voice to control the flow of magic.
B) Have the caster perform various arm motions to control the flow of magic.
C) Have the caster concentrate deeply to control the flow of magic.
D) Have the caster dance or move around, performing motions to control the flow of magic.
E) Have the caster perform a ritual with a mix of alchemical ingredients to control the flow of magic.
F) Combine a mixture of the above. (State the mixture you want here.)
G) Suggest another way, and have the tribe do that.

C. Keeps the gods powerful, but also keeps the religion interesting.

A. Ever-changing alignment would be a major pain in the ass

M. The major god-like emotions are Anger, Happiness, and Sadness. Each of those three has some servant spirits, Anger has blind rage, revenge, frustration, etc. Happiness has joy, content, elation, etc. Sadness has depression, sorrow, regret, etc. Also, there are some independent spirits, like boredom, playfulness, humor, shyness, awkwardness etc.

G. Certain items have connections to the gods. Perhaps the claw of some small, low on the food chain reptile channels fear, so if you attach one to an item (lets say a staff) then hit someone with that staff, they'll be filled with terror. Also, some designs have the power to channel spirits, so if you have the symbol of the lust spirit as a tattoo, people of the opposite sex will swoon for you. Also, some people are more talented at using these items then others, but this talent is natural, and while it can be enhanced through training, it cannot be taught.


F. 12. Fire!
E. 5. Rope, string, cloth, baskets, armor and cat toys!
g. 5. Medicine (and poison) are very critical at this stage. We're primitive and lots of minor ailments (like chicken pox) are fatal, so we need to start changing that.


B. 10. Solidifying our religion, plus since magic is real (seriously, wtf is up with that?) this could even have military uses.
F. 2. Graghish Malook Ptwee. Understand that? No, you didn't. That's because it's not a real language, like what the Tree Sages are speaking right now


B. Etash. Fire!
L. Risthere. Etash needs to heal as fast as he can, because every day he's hurt, is another day we can't hunt large game.
M. Erera. I want her to get 7th level divine spells ASAP. Gate, here I come!
H. Rothourn. We need food.
I. Myre. We need food.

How do you want to deal with this situation?
C) Follow Myre’s thought path, and believe that there a pantheon of powerful god-like spirits ruling over multitudes of small, lesser spirits.
no spirit is to amazingly powerful, but some have greater power than others, there are a multitude of crappy spirits (eg "spirit of puddles") but far less powerful ones.
-------------------------------------------------------
How do you want to deal with this situation?
A) Follow Erera’s thought path, and believe that spirits came into the world under one emotion and never changed.
-------------------------------------------------------
What do you want to classify as an major emotion affecting the spheres of magic? Choose as many as needed.
M) Suggest another list of emotions of the tribe, and have them accept that.

Hate
Fear
Anger
Disgust
Surprise
Happiness
Shame
Contempt
Sadness
Interest
Guilt

also pain, hunger, and thirst are not emotions they are responses to internal problems in the body. emotions are responses to external stimuli. pain is no different to feeling heat, or pressure. a feeling but definitely not an emotion.
-------------------------------------------------------
How do you want to cast magic?
B) Have the caster perform various arm motions to control the flow of magic.

Yup. Spicing up the world. It's not going to be as common as it is in, say, D&D, where every second person knows some, and it's not going to be as rare as in Middle-Earth, where there's less than 15 people who can do magic at all. Instead, it will be around the level of Warhammer, where each city may have a handful of magic-wielders.

How do you want to deal with this situation?
C) Follow Myre’s thought path, and believe that there a pantheon of powerful god-like spirits ruling over multitudes of small, lesser spirits.

This seems like the most useful and logical choice for our pantheon
-------------------------------------------------------

How do you want to deal with this situation?
A) Follow Erera’s thought path, and believe that spirits came into the world under one emotion and never changed.

Same as above
-------------------------------------------------------

What do you want to classify as an major emotion affecting the spheres of magic? Choose as many as needed.
A) Anger
B) Hate
C) Joy
E) Lust
F) Hunger
G) Thirst
J) Fear
K) Pain

While Hunger and Thirst are not emotions to us humans, that does not mean that it can be seen as that by the crystalli, also it might open some avenues of magic linked to 1: summoning creatures if the caster is very hungry 2: cause feelings of hunger and weakness in an enemy, well i'm sure its not to hard to guess how i'm thinking
-------------------------------------------------------

How do you want to cast magic?
C) Have the caster concentrate deeply to control the flow of magic.

This seems to be the most effective way to be honest as the only way to hinder us using our magic is by making it impossible for us to focus and concentrate
-------------------------------------------------------

How do you wish to advance technology? (22 Production Points)
A) Start experimenting with how fast different sizes of rocks fall, and how to drop them accurately. (Military +) [5/10 PP]

Furthering the ability to use rocks effectivly in battle is always usefull, as such its getting 2 points

B) Start experimenting with where on the body are the blows more fatal. (Military +) [7/10 PP]

This is getting 3 points as its important to learn how and where to hit the enemy/prey to kill it quicker and more effectivly

C) Start experimenting with how deep to make the skinning incisions. (Military +) [1/5 PP]

This is getting 4 points to teach us how to start skinning our caught food effectivly as it should be the start of basic clothing/armor/shield/blankets/myrad of other things

D) Start stripping wide sheets of bark off trees for use. (Science +) [0/5 PP]

Since we don't believe the trees to be 'gods' any longer (long live emotions tongue.gif) its a lot safer to start stripping the bark for various uses, so it is getting 5 points

E) Start experimenting with different weaving techniques, to get a tighter and more durable rope. (Economy +) [4/25 PP]

This is also getting two points as proper ropes can be used for a varied number of purposes

F) Start trying to find how to keep a spark alive long enough for it to become a flame. (Science +) [21/50 PP]

The fire creation is getting 3 points from me since i want to continue working on it even if not a lot

G) Start experimenting with how to apply medicinal herbs and plants, and whether to ingest them or apply them to the wound. (Science +) [10/25 PP]

Since i concider this rather important i'm giving it the last 3 points

Quick summary:
A 2, B 3 C 4, D 5, E 2, F 3, G 3
-------------------------------------------------------

How do you wish to further our culture? (12 Culture Points)
A) Start experimenting with which type of wood is best to carve. (Culture +) [4/25 CP]

This is getting 2 points so our written language/signs/markings advances a few steps further

D) Begin to use foliage to unify the tribe, bringing together a similar look. (Culture +) [0/10 CP]

This gets 5 points since i like the idea of us starting to show unity by wearing something similar, i am assuming that once we start with skinning and such that this mindset will continue there with similar looks

C) Come up with a name for the religion, increasing its influence. (Religion +) [0/1 CP]
E) Come up with names for the various edible fruits and leaves. (Culture +) [0/1 CP]
G) Come up with names for the various small prey which we eat. (Culture +) [0/1 CP]
H) Come up with a name for the race of the tribe members. (Culture +) [0/1 CP]
I) Come up with names for the medicinal plants which we know. (Culture +) [0/1 CP]

Each of these get a point each as it helps having names for the stuff we do and what we use, so the last 5 points are spent here

Our religion and proper language i'm allowing to rest this round to allow our culture to have a more spread field, both language and religion has been increased nicely and our choices will likely increase it a bit more without points spent specifically on it

Quick summary:
A 2, D 5, CEGHI 1 each
-------------------------------------------------------

What do you wish to do? 5 Working Members
D) Start collecting vines off trees and other foliage. (Resources +)

Etash's duties currently will be to gather vines i think, some properly dried vines should help get a fire going(if we get the right kind obviously) also, the vines should have other uses

G) Send out a hunting party for large game. (Food +)

Since we have both pain killers and wound healer plants i'm going to pull our healer from his field of experience and instead have him assist the leader in a proper hunt since he got some hunting skill and we need more Gigadon meat(also gives us skin to well skin >.>) so Rothourn and Risthere to go hunting large game, once the hunt is over Risthere should try to heal the kiddo preferably tongue.gif

J) Send out scouts to explore the surrounding area. (Explore +)

We need to know more about the area around us as such i'm going to vote for sending Myre our to wander a bit and learn more of the lay of the land

M) Have a tribe member or tribe members practice magic. (Religion +)

I guess Erera should focus on her magic skills since she is the one who has a knack at it, once she starts to get better tho we should have her try to teach others, hopefully the two adult males can get enough meat so the fruits are not needed

Quick summary:
D Etash, G Rothourn and Risthere, J Myre, M Erera
