You just aren't strong enough alone, so you instead decide to get some help. With Noh's help, you drag your battered body to the glade-that-is-going-to-be-a-temple and lean on your staff, calling to Isu. With the aid of the goddess of wild things, you have a plan. It isn't too long before you are aware of her presence. It seems all the goddesses of the wild mess with your son's heart... Maybe it's just his age. He doesn't describe her to you, but she has to look at least a little more human than when you last had eyes to see her with. You plead for her aid in healing you and she nods."Of course, in exchange for an offering, as is only right.""Name it.""Blood of an animal, like you gave Tengr... And a few of those bright beads that flash like fire, to make a necklace.""It will be done."In return, Isu takes your head between her hands and whispers to you the secrets you sought. Long have your people known to use dock to soothe a nettle's sting; spiderwebs to bind a wound; chewed willow-bark to ease a headache... And Isu confirms to you far more than you suspected. Some plants are natural, some are magical and some can have their natural properties enhanced by magic, some to cure and some to harm and some to grant strange properties.With Noh as your eyes and swift-running hands, you mash together leaf and root and berry and not a little magic into a poultice and potion smelling of trampled summer grass. Before long, you start to feel much better. It is not an instant cure, not for such a grevious wound, but you are on the mend... And even better, Noh seems to have learned a little something. He may have scant talent for magic, but such craft only requires a little magic itself...
>>46615876>You have gained the trait 'Druidic Learning'!>You can now use plants to create potions and poultices that have various effects. Each potion requires a stat check and more advanced ones may call for rare ingredients.It is now late summer.

Well I won't pretend there weren't issues, but this isn't the place for that.
>>46615890>See what the mood of the clan is like, talk to people and get to know them (free)>Continue training Noh in Druidic MagicHave him collect the herbs and prepare the medicine for our hipAlso I went on vacation for a week and you guys dragged our blind ass in front of a herd of Aurochs, what the fuck
>>46616032Tried to do RWB a favor and get him able to write a character that can seen in color.>>46615890Let's start working on that necklace
>>46616032This and practice with making basic healing potions to heal our self.This helps us training our son.Healing our self.Massive trading potential.This won overwhelming support last time. everyone rolled for it with a 1d10+6 but we didn't know the bonus with the new druid learning.
>>46616281I mean, what you could do is focus on having him head over to the strangers and get a group of their people to join our family/pack like we did with the herders. That is a form of unifying the valley. And once that happens we can keep including more and more people into our family/tribe. Thrym will get his vision back, and we accomplish a request of the gods. Bang out hat temple and we've resolved a few major points. I think having our hunter daughter marry the strongest son of the chief of the Sunish should tie them to us fine.still coming to our family
>>46616786That might not be a bad idea, we need to be careful to phrase it the right way though, she will be quite strong when she comes back and it will be up to the men to win her hand. I would imagine this would attract some attention from Mesut's kin as well and from the Sunish given their insistence on strengthAlso it's good to see you back RWB
Good to see a good turn-out today. Okay, votes counted.>>46616281You guys know I was making a joke when I complained about that, right?
The clan's mood is tense. Your brush with death has left them on edge still. If you die, who will speak with the gods and tell them what needs to be done to appease them when they are angry, or to bargain with them for blessings? You get asked repeatedly, to please bring the gods closer to your people and to find more for them. There's a re-newed interest in the Heavenly Gods as well, as many see them as the 'easier' path than handing over food and valuables to the Wild Gods. You know better, but don't have much success convincing anyone.With you still hobbled, you rely upon Noh to run some errands for you. You describe to him exactly the plants you need and he sprints off to gather them. He also helps you to the edge of the forest and a makeshift stone, to offer a goat's life and the copper beads to Isu, as your part of the bargain. Your son watches intensely as you crush the berries, leaves,twisted roots and seeds on a flat stone and powder bark in your fingers. The resulting poultice is faintly green and smells of decaying plants, but you mix it with water and carefully heat it over a small fire, as you speak the words you know grant it power and letting your quiet voice carry power that awakens what little there was in the reagents. The resulting potion is bitter and unpleasant, but you can immediately feel the pain receding, little by little and the bones slowly starting to knit back together.There is a little of the potion remaining, but you lack the means to store it properly and it spoils fast. You will need to make it again to finish your healing.
>>46617517It is now early fall and the traders are starting to pack up and move.What will you do?>Hunt the aurochs 1d10 (Strength -Blind)>Fish in the river 1d10 (Skill +Trait -Blind)>Explore the forest>Explore up the valley>Explore the hills>Try and investigate something new (List options)>Make something special (List options)>See what the mood of the clan is like, talk to people and get to know them (free)>Change your active jobs (free)>Try to summon a new god>Make offerings to a god>Bring more land under cultivation/construction (List options)>Other
>>46617540Lets try and make this potion for for healing and be done with it soon.I assume That we're also using our healing magic along with the poultice? Teaching our son healing magic along with the druidic learning? Would we need to roll?
>>46617657This.Do we need to train him several times or did we teach him all that we know regarding the druidic learning.I assume it's like an alchemist that then imbues the potion with magic?
>>46617540make the potion for healing againdoes the person making the potion actually have to be able to do magic, or is more the words themselves?Can we make a potion to give start to magical abilities?
>>46617992 (me)Also, could we start an herb garden of the different plants?
>>46617540Continue traning Noh and make the potion againSeconding the idea for the herb garden though now wouldn't be the best time to start itWe need to make that sacrifice to Soqed again since Sara is still not backDid the Traders get their cart or no?
>>46618081I can't remember but i think we decided to keep the cart
>>46618200I think the plan this year was to trade it off to them for some major rewards, possibly some donkeys of our own, it'll have to wait for next year though but it does give us more time to work out the kinks in it
>>46618200I'll have to look back. I've been half-assing these threads so badly, I've not even recorded what you have, or the names of the gods-!Votes called.
>>46618081A part of me feels like this year's offering could offend Soqed and/or Sera, showing that we don't think she can take care of herself, even with all her training. The other part thinks that if we don't give the offering, the omniscient spirit that controls everything from the shadows RWB will make us pay dearly and kill our daughter.
>>46618288I remember the discussion turning to discussing with them if they wanted us to make them carts, i.e them placing a order rather than us flat out selling our only cart. Point being we would keep that cart both for display of concept and to increase temple construction speed.
>>46618427We're paying this year basically to keep soqued from killing her/leaving her in the wild.>>46618081why would the traders get carts? We should trade for it if anything. I can't remember us ever giving up carts.>>46618430I do not remember that. I guess I may need to check if we actually spoke to them about it.
>>46618544Definitely, I was never under the impression we were giving up our only cart I just don't think we ever got around to discussing the carts with the traders since we were so rudely interrupted by a bull auroch
>>46618544That's what I'm getting at, we're paying to keep her safe on her journey out of the wild, as opposed to letting her rely on her skills to find her own way back. I'm not saying we shouldn't sacrifice, I'm just tossing my thoughts out there.
>>46618694I say this is the last year for it, I am halfway expecting her to be standing at the usual spot for the sacrifice when we get there because seriously it's been a fucking year, she should be back
>>46618755If you guys knew what I know, you would hate me right now...
>>46618786She's dead now isn't she.We sent her off, she failed a background roll a month back and has been dead this entire time. Soqed is just using us for the sacrifices
>>46618694>"Not so fast," the wolf god cuts you off. "As long as you grant me these offerings, your girl-child is safe, but she has a long way to go before she leaves the Wild. She has learned much, but some peril may yet befall her...""You mean your pack may yet attack her?" you frown, your fists balling at your sides."All beasts need to eat," Soqed smirks. As he is still in the form of a giant wolf, the effect is quite unsettling. "Wolves and others. And the Wild is a confusing place. She could take a long time to return to this world."I just wonder how long its going to take. hopefully not to many more for him to sqeeze free food out of us. Hopefully she learns a thing or two during this time.At least our other daughter is being taught a shit ton of magic. >>46618755I hope so And I would think that to be the case.And as for the donkey I think we could trade a cart for some knowledge and a donkey at least. Or we could try and capture an auroch, with some back up and the auroch's god blessing to take 1 or two. >>46618786we shall see..
>>46618812I would aim for at least a breeding pair of donkeys and would vote resoundingly no as far as approaching the aurochs again
>>46618786Don't play these games with me Britfag.
>>46618863Don't think Donkeys can breed? I just think that who ever voted for it didn't think it through. If we get a blessing from the auroch's ruling god we should be fine. As we did we the goats. With others for help. Note that when we pray to the god we can note that it would go towards building the temple faster which is exactly the reason. So the god isn't likely to say no. Along with giving us a possible large pack that can reproduce. We also have an excess of wild grain we can use to feed them.
>>46618954Donkeys can breed, Mules can't.
>>46618954Donkeys can breed, mules can't
>>46618954Donkeys can, mules can'tNot a bad idea there, would still like to give us some time away from the Auroch's, I would be less worried about being killed by them and more worried about being killed by Beren
>>46618954Donkeys can breed, you are thinking of mules.Also i feel we should get the gods help with the whole auroch taming idea, maybe point out that we do the same for some of the wolf gods children/disciples/things
>>46619046>>46619032>>46619027Apparently tg knows mules
>>46618812I remember RWB refrenacing Irish Mythos and if that is what I think it is that means time distortions, she may return in hundreds of years and only have aged a few seasons or the opposite may return soon and be a haggered old lady, ither way your little girl is not gonna be the same and we may not even get to see her again....We really need to keep Noah's training going keep his mind working and show him all we know.Part of me is tempted to suggest that we maybe train him to be the Speaker for the Heavenly Gods and have one of our daughters return as the Voices of the Wild Gods, it splits the load but keeps it in house.How is our Waterborn Child doin anyways?
>>46619049Hive Queen Quest confirmed not dead?
>>46619232Mhm, I get you. Well I like this drudic learning we've picked up. To say the least our son will learn that and magic. His magic training is slow going but that may be due to him being young. Also he has learned to use magic way before our Mc did. So even his minimum should be more than our current MC. We do a lot of the heavy lifting so our kids don't have to, or at least have it easier to accomplish what we did.Like our family has goats, largest in the tribe. So we're well off. Before thrym dies the temple should be done. And we should also accomplish uniting the valley. And if possible I wouldn't mind changing the deal Say giving our son more x instead of healing our eyes.Shit if we keep training drudic learning we could likely get our appearance back. And heal some eye damage before we die. Helping out the future generations if they overdose on magic.
>>46620368Say directly give a boon to our children that carries on. Making our line less susceptible to disease and a minor regeneration.healing small cuts/scratch in a night and such. Or just a more magical line of heirs.
>>46620439maybe...just maybe what if when Tyrm is close to the end of his time...we go off somewhere secret and give our last moments to the gods... we use our self as a sacrifice to secure a great boon for our bloodline...Or maybe we can talk to our Nila about doing what she did to our stillborn son?
>>46620624Yeah I definitely want to be put to rest in the river, also that last moment with the Gods would be a sweet place to introduce the Heavenly God of DeathSpeaking of which once we are up on our feet again we should talk to Nila about Ebba
The second time doesn't make the concoction taste any nicer. Noh is still a great help to you though and while you suspect his magical abilities will forever remain minimal; if he learns well, he should still be able to still create potions and poultices. He might one day turn out to be a passable druid, if not a shaman like yourself. Regardless, the potion is starting to have an effect as time passes and your bones have a chance to press together again and mend through processes you have no comprehension of.Fuck, I am so sorry everyone, but I need to take 7 hours sleep or so. I'll get back to this as soon as I wake up; late nights are catching up with me...
>>46620672Sleep Well bud
>>46620672No problemo, take some time to rest up there boss. Fuller update when you get back?
>>46620766Definitely. Sorry. I closed my eyes at my desk and before I knew it, half an hour had passed. I need to pass out for a while.Please don't bump the thread too much in the meantime. I don't want to seem obnoxious.
>>46620672Good night man. Hope you sleep well.
>>46623301might need to bump on page 8, just to be sure

Regardless, the potion is starting to have an effect as time passes and your bones have a chance to press together again and mend through processes you have no comprehension of.Your son's interest is sadly waning slightly, but he at least realises that learning druidic skills would be extremely helpful to him in the future and he's glad to spend time with you, carefully watching and listening as you explain how to coax out the native magic within the reagents he brings you. It's a lesson you barely understand yourself, so honestly, the both of you are learning, even as you teach.>Roll 1d10+4 (Strength +Potion) to see if you make a full recovery
>>46627172>>46627181Uh... You guys actually need to roll.
Rolled 6 + 3 (1d10 + 3)>>46627343Oh god I'm giggling. I'm just imagining a Anon sitting at his desk excitedly yelling HEAL! Only to realize he didn't make a roll.
Rolled 10 + 4 (1d10 + 4)>>46627020>>46627383Plus 4 man not 3
>>46627444well..we did it...escaped death again
>>46627444Lucky dice! Okay, gimme a bit.
>>46628413take you time
You're lucky you're still young enough to be strong. Day by day, you can feel your bones pressing together and sealing up. It's a curious sensation and you have a strong feeling that if the potion hadn't deadened the entire side of your body from your chest down, you'd be senseless with agony, but thankfully, you are spared that much. By the time the harvest is due to start, you are almost fullyrecovered and can once again move without problems. The potion's work isn't total... You don't think anything you can currently do can heal you entirely, but what remains shouldn't trouble you over-much.It is now late fall and the harvest is coming in.What do you do?>Hunt the aurochs 1d10 (Strength -Blind)>Fish in the river 1d10 (Skill +Trait -Blind)>Explore the forest>Explore up the valley>Explore the hills>Try and investigate something new (List options)>Make something special (List options)>See what the mood of the clan is like, talk to people and get to know them (free)>Change your active jobs (free)>Try to summon a new god>Make offerings to a god>Bring more land under cultivation/construction (List options)>Other
>>46630488Practice magic and druidic learning with noh.
>>46630488>Try and investigate something new (List options)Rollers spinning in place, instead of constantly needing to be reset.
>>46630753We got the wheel all ready, what i feel we should do is;>>46630488>Bring more land under cultivation/construction (List options)Work on the temple and use it as a test run for our cart.
>>46630975I would work on something else. This being the season of harvest we have less workers available. I'd be up for trying to improve some of the cart's problems. Don't remember what the dice are for crafting. We should have Elia help us out this time around. Since he is good at sculpting and arts he should help designing a new/better or improvement on it.
>>46631132Didn't we roll well and solve most, if not all, of the problems with our cart design?Either way, sooner the temple is done the sooner our power base solidifies. Not to mention that with the bonuses we will get from the wild gods with it will make most future actions easier!
>>46630488We need to sacrifice to Soqed right?
>>46631664Yeah.>>46631588We got rid of some problems not all. Well if it confirms the vote work on the temple this turn.And yeah this turn we Sacrafice to Sowed. Along with making the temple.We should see how many more points of work we need to do. And how many we now have.
>>46631664>>46631825Sounds good to me, sacrifice to Soqed and work on the temple Spend the winter either refining the cart or producing a couple more for the traders?
This still got some life?
>>46632363I'd vote for refining the cart. The more work we do past the concept point decreases the chance of someone of someone convergently inventing it.
RWB are you dead?
>>46640063he probably fell asleep
>>46640324F rest in peperoni
Rip in Peace
>>46642054you will not be forgetti
All that's left in the wake of his absence
>>46643231>>46643230what are the odds?
>>46643243About 4663231 to 1.
>>46643266i doubt that
>>46615876Whoah... so this quest is still going?!
