The village of Bloodwater near the halfling community of Giant's Crossing ruled by their mighty Chief Vengral and settled near the River where Giant beastmen have crossed to attack their homes and now...more beasts from the plains come to possibly destroy their homes.Goblins, as told by the Halflings by the description of the little green men, are nasty creatures. Runtish beast with love of Fire, Blood, and seeing things Die. Usually in that order.Last time, it was agreed to retrieve reinforcements before engaging the Goblin Band which was found seemingly fleeing from something. But now, the question of Peace VS the Prospect of War is on the horizon...A: Attack them before they know we are here!

>>41220011As the band begins preperations, and they sneak closer as if hunting game. Night falls and the moon rises, and they begin their war cries as they charge. Crying to long dead ancestors or warriors of old they begin the assualt.The defense was nothing, and the halflings gave their support with stones from the slings they carried. The men struck down the goblins like they weren othing and soon the goblin forces were defeated...few survived and were captured in a hut that the humans trapped them in...A: There Were no survivors.

>>41220077>C: You know...they could be a spoil of war..
The goblins are quickly rounded up, and soon are made to swear their loyalty in their gutteral version of the tribal common tongue.There were only ten survives, two women three children, and five males who were craftsmen or hunters who were sleeping and helped defend the huts. They are 'escorted' back to the camp and quickly a small hut for the entire group is created. Their job of fishing in the river is made, and the children are watched by the females.What do we do now...?A: Explore the ForestB: To the south!C: Northward Bound.D: Let's see what Watersoul is up to, the Sorcerer Polyglot with Blue glowing bits.E: See what's going on with the village 'Pet'

>>41220661As Watersoul sits by the water, and watches it he starts to swing his hand back and forth. He tilts his head as the water moves, it wasn't uncommon for such acts to happen around him and most of the village made sure to be kind to the lad as he was very nice, peaceful even.As he stepped into the ankle deepwater, he felt something pulling at him from the deeper parts and cried for help...and many villagers saw him be pulled into the deepest hole in the river...After a few moments the chief was removing his ceremonial garb to retrieve the lad when he saw the boy rise. A glittering sphere of dark red crystal in his arms. The halflings stared as did the villagers. "It's our destiny..." The young Magi said and held it up as it started to shine slightly and paint symbols of red with the light and the little red lizard that flew throughout the village flew forward and landed on the boys shoulders with a chirp...Seems the Orb also glowed with an odd inner fire.Obtained: Freaky Red Orb!A: Let's fuck with the orb!B: Ask Watersoul what he saw.C: Explore NorthD: South time?E: Over the River and through the woods.

>>41220796>>41220777"IT was...Big." Watersoul said, having not let go of his Orb and the Elders only getting a look at it. The halfling sure don't know what the devil it is and the Elders are trying to find where the symbols came from. "It was big like the Moon. It had...a big face and big blue eyes and looked like the little statue kinda." He explained and looked at the orb."It said that...this will help but nothing else before I float up to the top." Watersoul said with a shrug.A: Let's fuck with the Orb a bit moreB: To the Forest!C: Southward bound?D: Time to see if there is anything up north.E: Write in.

>>41221119Give me a second to think of what this causes.Because Good lord...you are getting lucky.
>>41221119As this Expedition starts to be formed, The chief decides that he will join and leaves the Elders to watch the village while he is away. As he journeys with his scouts, his guardian Orc-Slayers who he has dubbed Heroes of the Tribe. As they travel down the river, they begin to find large square stones. And as they continue on...they begin to see a large structure. Taller than trees made of dark black stone but splitered off and having seemingly fallen through time like a tree having burnt down. A few things move in the rubble, large rats and birds stare at them..There also seems to be three places to explore...but where...?A: Near the top bit that fell, might be something good in there.B: There is something near the base where it connects to the ground. Could be some loot.C: There is a hole that goes underground not far from the structure...could it be something too?
>>41221256>A: Near the top bit that fell, might be something good in there.
>>41221256Check the base of the tower first.
>>41221337>>41221298>>41221328The group of scouts go to the first level, starting to poke around finding broken shards of glass and shattered wooden tables. Most of it was just splinters and kept poking around until they came across a few things hanging in a room off the main hall.Things were in Glass cases, most of them were gone. Taken by some unknown force but a small figurine made of dark blue metal sat on a stand. Covered in dust, The chief walked forward, and picked up the statue to give it a closer look and found it was the figurine of a wolf that had odd symbols all over it.As he ran his hands over it's head, it began to shine and a new figurine appeared, standing in front of the Chief causing him to reach for his axe when he saw it. An unnaturally large wolf, the same color as the metal stood in front of him with such intelligent eyes and insight as if waiting for a command.After a few moments, the creature was at the chief's side as he proclaimed it as his prize from the tower and none else wanted the odd beast... All that was left was shiny stones that Dwarves seemed to like but that was about it in this section.+1 Odd Blue Wolf Creature.A: Explore that top bit.B: Down Down time?C: Head home, 2spooky4me.

>>41221503As the group starts to leave the main floor, and head to the top they start to find traces of someone having been there...they go on the alert and hold their blades and axe at the ready before going into a room with the Trapdoor now being a normal door in the wall. As they open the door..."Wait! Wait!" A strange voice, unlike any that they had heard before. The chief squints and sees a young woman, long blonde hair and long robes made of some kind of cloth like that of the Dwarves or halflings. Her ears were pointed and her eyes, the color of the sky, were in the shape of almonds. "I mean no harm...I came to this place and have gotten lost...I found much please I beg do not attack." She begs, speaking the tongue in an odd accent...A: Leave the stranger alone in the area.B: Ask her what the place is.C: Offer to bring her back to the village.D: Attack! E: Write in.
>>41221696"This is a Tower of Wizardry, my Master told me to find a place to construct a new outpost on the far reaches of the forest and thus I found these ruins...I fear monsters have slain it's old master and now not much is left except the few bits of treasure." Her gaze lingers on the wolf carefully. "I can tell you little of Human Wizards...as not many were known by my people. But you may take a few things if you like if you do not mind me studying the area..." She offers.A: Leave her alone. No need to bother her.B: Ask her to come with you.C: Ask what's in the hole.D: ATTACKE: Write in
>>41221779>B: Ask her to come with you.>C: Ask what's in the hole
So does this mean that we don't need a deity to learn magic? That we can find a book/tome and learn from it? I had gotten the impression that we did.
"The Hole...?" She asked and rubbed her side, "That must have been the mine. A simple iron mine that was found by the servants who helped build the tower." "Come, we have a place in the Village." The chief said, and the elf blinked confused and nodded quickly."Thank you Human, it is an honor..." She said and they began to head back to the village. The human villagers begin to stare but many of the Children find the woman pretty...and the information about a mine seems to interest the halfling citizens as well.>>41221889You don't need them to learn Arcane Magic.

>>41222104>>41222050>>41222157"Wizardry is the study and control of the magical forces around-" She starts when she sees the small Dragon flying around Riverheart. Seems he has left the magical orb in the care of the Elder who currently cares for him. She stares for a moment."That boy is...has potential I can feel the magical energies coming off of him in Waves." She said softly and nodded. "I've never felt that much from a child before..."Strange...A: Ask her to try to train Watersoul.B: Go see what's up with the Dragon.C: Go check out the Woods.D: SouthE: North!

>>41222339Watersoul and the Elf start to speak, some of the Elders watching curiously as the work goes surpringly quickly. As it turns out, the night that the Elf comes to dinner she explains that he knows the basic cantrip of Acid Splash, though it is still weak.As well he knows how to create light and he seems to have devoloped a Magical polyglot from his contact with the orb, along with the blessing of literacy. Even as dinner goes on he is reading a book, something even the Elders have never seen before and his nose is buried in at the markings.As dinner goes on, a new voice sounds and the little Dragon on Watersouls shoulder starts to speak in which Watersoul replies simply as if it were just asking him questions.A: Go Explorein (pick where)B: Go check out them Dwarves.C: Start to work on the village, seems that it could be improved with bigger homes and better walls.D: Write in

The homes took a bit longer, and work on them will have to continue through the next day as well to get everything to shape. A Few longhouses were build for meals and cooking with smaller family huts were made for those who had families of their own. Though the chief helped build one of a medium size for himself...he was the chief. Though it was hard...many were tired as night fell...1d100

They take up positions as sitting on thick sections of the wall when they hear it. A hooting sound, hooting and hollaring like men excited after bringing down a hunt. The men start to look into the air and soon they see torches in the air with dark flying shapes until they come closer...six shapes in total and landing at the front gate of the village.As many wake to see these new arrivals...it seems that the Dwarves have come back with large...Birds? They looked like birds of the face, but their bodies were like that of cats."A Pleasure seeing you all again." The Dwarf said in the tribal tongue, seems the old friend had been taking lessons... "We bring you a gift, as we recently have begun the process of taming our new mounts." He says gesturing to the bird creature that was looking at a few of the villagers..."We bring you a gift of Far Seeing..." The Dwarf said and pulled out a tube that he extended carefully and put to his eye. "And with that, we are off on more little patrols, can't 'ave Dragons coming back to the mountain homes eh?" He asked before running over to the largest and kicking off with the beast squaking and him hooting as it dipped and twirled with the other Dwarves following...Dwarves are fucking weird.

>>41222846>>41222828>>41222798The group of hunters and chief have decided wood is very important. And thus have decided to use some of their tools and weapons to clear a bit of the forest out. It takes more of the day, and a good bit of help to get most of the huge trees in a pile outside the village walls but it's done. A good bit of the far bank is exposed and one could build a few huts with one very large one in the center if they so desired now. As well it gives them easier access to the forest. They use the wood to start to improve houses a bit more, but still have a ton to work with.

They quickly aclimate stone from the river, bringing along their 'Wee Tools' as one of the villages called it and started to create a few boulder shaped houses. Much of the tribe offer to aid them but they wave it away, and give instead their word of thanks as they create a large circle of boulder homes they all seem to be able to fit inside...and dirt flying out of the top of a few of them. After a while, the group of roughly fifty gnomes start to work quickly with the Halflings. Seemingly happy to help with the garden work and building a few things from metals they brought with them to assist in fishing. Food is perfectly fine, as none of them are overly lazy.
