Welcome to Cultural Evo, the game of MULTIFACETED GROWTH. In Cultural Evo, you will control both a small but growing village, interact with other villages, and watch as your village's culture grows and changes with the years as events force them to grapple with new introductions to their worldview.You could have part of your village split off due to a religious or cultural schism, you could create a harmonious society based on brainwashing, or a harmonious society based on fear, or somehow get to America.We will begin by assigning the first three civilizations. Three people can control a civilization at a time - we will begin when at least four players have assigned themselves to a civilization. In the next post, I will be giving examples of how Cultural Evolution works. Tribes are assigned first-come, first-serve.
>>29797Dwarves are dope
>>29844>>29838>>29828The Ore Tribe has been filled.
>>29844L8 M8Be the other tribe so we can start!
>>29828>>29838Welp. I see my associates have stepped up
>>29797>>29838>>29856I'll switch so we can start
Why not? Claimed!
The Ore Tribe are a village around 40 strong. They are all miners - children are trained in the art of mining from birth, and they stockpile huge amounts of shinies (but have no idea how to smelt yet). They believe if you crack a rock open and it has ore inside, you are blessed by the nature spirits. Their village lies on the inside of a mountain range that puts them close to the sea.The Sand Tribe is a nomadic, atheistic village that roams through their desert lands searching for food, primarily small lizards and cacti. They are about 20 strong. They believe that they were spawned spontaneously from the sands.The Tree Tribe are a cannibalistic village of scarf-wearing tree-dwellers. They believe that cannibalism is an efficient way of recycling resources, and have discovered simple tools like clubs and whatnot made of bone. They number about 30 strong.Attached is an example of how the CULTURAL EVOLUTION process occurs. Members of a tribe can make their tribe perform rudimentary actions, or perform their turn EVOLVING CULTURE OR ADDING A NEW CULTURAL TRAIT.In the spirit of time, you may begin. Proceed in an orderly fashion. Once everyone takes a turn, I will post a quick status update, and then you may proceed with the next turns, and so on.please note that this is a trial test and i have a vague idea of what I'm doing so excuse the clusterfuck.
>>29889>>29884Can the sand tribe go first, for the first trait we want HUNTER, hunt that sand bby>>29889
>>29889Start using every part of human remains like native Americans did with the Buffalo. Weapons, shrines, tools all have human bone as a main component.
>>29884>>29889That's solid but i think maybe a memory or exploration trait might be better
>>29889>The Ore Tribe are a village around 40 strong.

>>29921Also can my people make leather yet? If not they are definently experimenting with ways to preserve skin for clothing. Gotta stay green!
>>29936That sounds pretty good
>>29958The Tree Tribe has the most in the way of rudimentary tools, using bones as clubs and hammers and whatnot. The Sand Tribe has no knowledge of tools, but they are dextrous enough to rip the spines out of cactuses and store them for later use while they consume the flesh. The Ore Tribe breaks rocks open by smashing them against other rocks.
Is it too late to join the nomads?
>>30016Nah we can hold one more person
>>29935>>30016Never too late scribe, i think we should have a learning trait, but exploration is good also.
>>29979Well then if leather is still a bit away I would like to add a trait>xenophobiaTree Tribe believes the blood of their ancestors has been passed down to them through their ritualistic cannibalism. Everyone inside the tribe considers everyone to be family. Others who aren't in the tribe are considered unclean or mongrel-ish for not sharing the blood of their ancestors.
>>30053I agree. I think our first and foremost goal should be expanding our culture. Without morals we become monsters, or Trump supporters.
>>29889What in the way of natural resources do the Ore Tribe have? What do they eat and such?
>>29889>>30016>>30053How about oral tradition?
>>30083What tribe are you apart of?>Tree tribe>Ore tribe
In a moment, lads, I'm compiling the first turn.
Changing my name in case others join.
>>30105>>30076Telling our history through oral traditions, where to find specific things. Important people so on and so forth.This could lead to a religion and a more solid foundation for ideals and information.
>>30149Oral tradition could be good for general information and knowledge, seeing as how we live in the desert and there's probably no paper. Let's stay nonreligious, though - we don't want to end up like those tree folk.
>>30149Nigga please, were atheists, why would we try to MAKE our own religion. You have been kicked from the sans tribe (jk)
>>30171Hey man we are just a pragmatic group of people who didn't want a bunch of perfectly good meat and bones go to waste. And we are one with our dead relatives. Ancestorless heathens.
>>30189Our ancestors live through the words we speak you psychotic people eaters
>>30189Enjoy your aids.
>>30189>>30200You people are all insane, what with your lack of respect for nature and eating people and not having religion
>>30200People aren't words sandcrawler. People are blood and flesh and sinew. To eat them is to take their strength and make it your own. I do not wish to live in your world where your ancestors aren't one with you.
>>30074On occasion, the Ore Tribe eats rocks, but their normal diet consists of birds and small, goat-like mammals that are not quite goats because this is not earth.The Tree Tribe, when they aren't eating their own, mostly subsist on plants and berries.
>>30221If you guys can spare about 10-20 minutes I can make tiny sketches of the tribe's current living conditions
>>30221Is it time for the next round friend?
>>30246Also, assume that, unless an event occurs that happens on a day-to-day, that a year or so passes between each turn.>>30256Yes.
>>30221Other Sand tribe members what should we work on next.
>>30172How about...Sand SCIENCE! ?
>>30221>>30264Maybe try and find resources like clay or sandstone?
>>30221Lets see... New trait time I think..I say we add Elder Veneration or children who find lots of Ore-Filled rocks are to be trained as shamans to the Nature Spirits. What do you think other Ore Chief?
>>30246Yeah Ive got all day>>30261Also the tree tribe is going to work on interconnecting the treetops to create easy passage through the jungle and promote the close familial ties that already exist.
>>30246I can wait, I got nothing else to do today
>>30288I think that's a good idea, how will we actually dig though. With our hands? or should we try and figure out tools first?
>>30317How about,Ore->Tools->IrrigationIt'll take a few years, though.
>>30288>>30343That sounds like a good plan. I had a thought though if we invent pottery we could become craftsmen and trade figures to ore tribe for ore.
>>30351Damn sand people propaganda
>>30358Okay, let's go with that. We live in the desert, so pottery should be a guarantee.
>>30371>working on potteryMan I can't wait to smash all those pots with the skull-club of my grandfather Sandcrawler
>>30371>>30358I agree with this, i was also thinking about marrying out eldest daughters and sons to people of the ore tribe. And we all war on tree tribe :D
>>30387Look at all those people coming together! It's an excellent social bonding ritual and helps us regain the loss of our departed. Though these savages haven't removed the bones for use.. Tsktsk
>>30394War is a bit much. Granted, they are disgusting cannibals, but they'd beat the shit out of us in a fight. Let's just settle on mutual disgust, for now.
>>30401Whenever people think of tree tribe they think of this, you scare no one you cannibals
Is it too late to get in on this? on phone right now, I.D is subject to change
That took a while, also, I'm bad at MSpaint.Do we have a consensus on the tribe's next turns?
>>30420 nope i think ore and tree tribe have open spots
>>30426Thanks! Looks cool. Also, can we have a count of members? It's hard to tell who's who with only seven players.
>>30426Yes I'm going with this>>30300Also what animals are in my forest if any at all?
>>30424>>30431im terrible at this>>30426Sand tribe is investing in pottery or just finding clay if that is to far
>>30446There are 40 members of the Ore Tribe, 20 members of the Sand Tribe, and 30 members of the Tree Tribe.The first year has been uneventful. There have been no births or deaths for any of the tribes, nor any natural events.>>30453The forest is home to several deer-like things around the edges, but mostly small birds and insects.
>>30424No, I think tree and ore both have a slot.
>>30446Im going with Shaman stuff from>>30296
Let's put our shiny rocks on the fire but make it, like, REALLY hot
Where the ore people at?
>>30481In the hills mostly>>30475That sounds... like a interesting idea!
I propose we spend our time studying the art of smelting and crafting of our precious metals. We can leverage our early knowledge of mining and prospecting into a monopoly on all economic resources that the other tribes would need to grow. If we learn to build effective weapons fast, we can enslave the other tribes and force them to work for us. While we spend our time studying other skills and exploring the island.
>>30500Well then... I say we focus on getting smelting, then maybe go on the war path
>>30500>>30515good luck trying to capture a nomadic tribe in THE FUCKING DESERT
>>30457>>30467I think we should do pottery first, then mating to get numbers up
>>30515Sounds like a plan. Let's force the peasants to do our bidding. They are nothing but savages.
>>30540You mean the people? They already do that, and by your logic we are savages to. I say we start carving out a fort in the hills! Like proper Dwarves!
>>30535Are you taunting me you fucking savage? My sons will grow up to rape your daughters, they will not only carve their names into your bloodline but also carve their faces into your brains. Prepare to bleed, savage.
What I have surmised so far>ore tribe is pretty much rome without the culture>sand tribe are egypt without the army>tree tribe are the celts with more cannibalism
>>30559Woah, take it easy, rockie.
I think from now on, just because that seems to be the way it's going anyway, we'll have it so that>Every team gets 1 NEW TRAIT or MODIFIED TRAIT per turn that they must generally agree on>Every team gets to have their tribe perform 1 ACTIONSound reasonable? Compiling the next turn now.
>>30560Yknow I was actually going for a tribe based on uncontacted South American tribal culture with Indian spiritualism thrown in. But the Celts are undeniably badass so I may take some of that and throw it in for shiggles. >I was actually going to create spiritual cannibals but everyone wants the warlike cannibals.
>>30581I like it!
>>30581Next turnWe mate and get like 5-6 childrenNew trait Crafting?
>>30585Viking cannibalsA rich culture based around honour with eating people>>30596That sounds like a good idea
>>30581Fantastic. My action for the round is interconnecting the trees and making a network to travel around the forestThe new trait?>Animal worshipSince animals are so rare in the area they are believed to be incarnations of the spirits that live in nature. By consuming them an individual gains the strength of the animal in question and can start the trials to become a shaman since so few in the tribe have consumed anything besides berries or humans
Okay, real quick, can someone from each team summarize your team's cultural trait and action for this current turn? Thank you, I love you all by the way <3
>>30628Children who find lots of ore are trained to be shamans for the nature spiritsWe start carving better homes into the stone
>>30596K.Richard, since we're like 90 posts in, can you see who's on what team?
>>30645Yes, keeping track of people is easy.
>>30647I thought that was next turn
>>30628Was this enough? >>>>>>>30628
>>30652Can you make a list? I'm a little confused, actually.
>>30672With the turn update I will.
Is Sand Tribe fully occupied?
>>30647EditThis is next turn rich
erm what is going on?
So can i just join any tribe now or are they all full?
How do I get in on this shit
>>30683>>30702>>30713>>30715I think all tribes are full, dont join trees their cannibals and like cheesey pizza
Uh, should we expand the teams next turn? I'd hate to exclude some anons.
>>30702Madness>>30715New tribes will be introduced soon-ish>>30713I believe they are all full, but we'll find out in a bit.TURN 2 FOR THE ORE TRIBE (the rest are coming in a second, I'm just doing them sequentially)
>>30702>>30713>>30715Id wait till this turn update goes through to confirm what slots are open and closed because Ive become confused myself.
>>30727You lost your tag, mr scribe. These ID's arent useless apparently
I thought this was gonna be shitBut it's pretty okay7.5/10 OP dontfuckup
>>30730Good call on building storage before we focus on smelting.
lurking here and hoping for getting some action
>>30743Ah, shit. Thanks for noticing.
>>30728Is magic a thing?Are monsters a thing?
NEXT POST WILL INCLUDE THE ROSTER
>>30759We dont know yet. I hope so though.
>>30762>Got water without even having to do shitNice.
>>30762Hopefully we dont get our shit fucked up
>>30767>>30759>eatin' her monsters, gaining their strength>eatin' our peeps, keeping the ancestors with you>first era: not being cannibals>heathen sandcrawler and rockbreakers gonna heath
>>30759are monstergirls and boys a thing?
So, m'sandies, what should our next move, be?
>>30803MatingNew trait: craftingWe can rest easy a little we found water we need pots and pans etc for cooking food
>>30802I hope to god noActually I think since this is a trial run we should keep it without many fantastical elements to keep it easier for OP.
>>30851Eh, just a bit makes things more interesting, cannibal hippyfag
The following IDs lead the Ore Tribe.>>29844>>30500 (nice dubs)now >>30822 i guessThe following IDs lead the Sand Tribe>>29883>>29912>>30016The following IDs lead the Tree Tribe>>29816it turns out there are two slots in the tree tribe open>>30802No fantastical elements right now because this is already SO CRAZY on my end.
>>30849And look now we have jugs to keep water in for long journeys>>30851Maybe as additional tribes?
>>30880can i join?
>>30880I'll wait for a new tribe
>>30900accidentally create my first tripcode
>>30880I have updated my trip as Im going to cover the culture stuff if no one else minds.As for my bid for culture, imporve the nature spirit trait to have the two most powerful nature spirits, the Earth and the Sky, who control all the lesser spirits. If we know of the Sea/ Destert/ Forest, add those to.If no one else suggests something, continue improving the settlement for the tribe action
*dances around fire to traditional israeli music*
>>30851>>30871>>30880Also I dont see how having monstergirls would be significant, but that's my opinion
>>30939We have music?Dont remember that...
>>30880Alright, so for my action the ternagers in the tribe go out and start making traps to capture animals such as tiger pits to capture animals for shaman ritualsThe new trait>Organized leadershipThe whole tribe considers each other to be blood family so the entire tribe shares resources. A council organizes the tribe, it is comprised of a group of people (5) who have eaten previous members of the council and have therefore "inherited" their position in the tribe. The council organizes but the tribe can choose to disregard them if it is proven that an order is somehow not beneficial to the tribe
>>30880Calling positionI say we try animal husbandry with whatever local animals we can findPreferably something that can hunt
>>30982It says right there that animals are revered.
>>30918Name yourself and we can deliberate on the next turn. Sorry this tribe has been my baby..
>>30982>>30997can i be the third member?
>>30998Yeah, for eating to gain their powers man. Covered that in the post about it. Food is power to these people
>>31022Oh. Still, typical cannibal, can't even decide if he likes animals or not.
>>31005yes my liegechange from >>31010to this
>>31022They eat people communally unless it's a council member. Animals are so rare that eating one gives you their spirit and makes you eligible to become a shaman. Hence why they are revered.
>>31022I say we love animals but once they get wounded/die they are fair game for noms
>>31022>food is powerYou obese cannibal shits
>>31032It's a jump off point for eating you Sandcrawler to gain your AMAZING powers over pottery eventually friend. >>31054Super simplified but basically correct>>30997And I do actually like this idea. That can be our action next round if everyone agrees
>>30933Love how Ore Tribe is coming down to a dictatorship because no one protests my choices. Looking to bring on new advisors who will actually present ideas, Forest and Sand tribes need not apply
Alright, everyone summarize their CULTURAL ACQUISITION and ACTION for this turn. I think it'd be a good idea to designate a leader who'll speak for your team in the END-OF-TURN SUMMARIES :3
>>31099>As for my bid for culture, imporve the nature spirit trait to have the two most powerful nature spirits, the Earth and the Sky, who control all the lesser spirits. If we know of the Sea/ Destert/ Forest, add those to.>If no one else suggests something, continue improving the settlement for the tribe actionI think Im gonna get the speaker job
>>31099I nominate >>29816As tree spokesperson as a founderBe good and just Otherwise into the pot you go
>>31099Mando can do it for the sand tribe, I guess.
Yo sand tribe I just realized something other tribes might think we are magic if we give them 'stone' statues of animals and people. We know that gods don't exist but they don't.>>31115good luck with kuru you people eaters.
>>31099For actionSand tribe mates our oldest and gets 5-6 children in the next two turnsTrait: Crafting we are ok in building weapons, in turn, we are amazing in building pottery and vases
>>31155KEKKILL YOURSELF I LAUGHED
>>31099This>>30982Next round after this we will do animal husbandry, but we need to go looking for predators we could domesticate first. Any ideas from the council?
>>31155Well, you're 1/3 right.
>>31152 I think we should stay nomadic as long as possible. We will be the desert version of the huns.
>>31115I accept your nomination, I shall go eat the leader of the council and gain his powers
>>31155there would be tribal warfare soon>>31194
Watching these peasants attempt to come into the desert where they have no water and noway to carry it. Good luck with your precious animals dieing of dehydration.
>>31155Only in /qst/ KEK
>>31240We need to dedicate an action next round to finding predatory animals. But OP didn't say there were emus in our forest. Just deer and some other smaller animals. Part of the reason we are cannibals is the lack of meat in our home
>>31155I like you. I really can't wait to see our cultures clash. Especially since I control all of the land that leads out of the peninsula. The only way out of your land will be a trap filled forest full of cannibals. Have fun :D
>>31263predator right? but it seem very hard and impratical, maybe some wolf/fox/hound ?
>>31294Once again, it depends on what we find when we dedicate an action to finding an animal to domesticate. I'll take anything. It took 10,000 years to turn the wolf into a dog. We have time
>>31290we will just wait until you desertify your land because of over harvesting and waltz out of the nice shiny desert you leave behind
Requesting the tribal council on the possibility to Build giant ORE WALL on the borde to defend ourselves against the barbarians.
>>31290Speaking of, im thinking we make a big fuck off sized wall
>>31324we live on tree right? maybe do something like air corridor linking each other house//tree, forming a mid-air village
>>31323That seems impossible currently considering its taken us 2 years to dig the equivalent at rabbit warrens
>>31323>>31324See look at these fucks building walls. WE will destroy your walls. You can't destroy ours because we have none.
>>31324>>31323I think trapping the forest and inviting the heathens into our forest to fight on our terms is more tactically sound. Guerrilla warfare is a bitch.
>>31350Remember that you are carving Rabbit Warrens out of the stone side of a mountain though, which is hardcore.
Hey, I'm thinking we try diplomacy, this turn. Any takers?
>>31344Ithis was my long term goal. To create a treetop system of paths that allow for greater mobility and air superiority. The potentials for ambushes are amazing.
>>31314Hey, with the Ore Tribes current natural rescources, what could we make in the way of instruments? Im interesting in Music for cultureAnd... Fair point I suppose
>>31381 I Say diplomacy with the ore tribe and as a trait the best crafters are the highest members are society.
>>31381By diplomacy you mean we have like a tribal council or something?
>>31381>>31404Eh. Why not, at least you dont eat people.
>>31375Alright tree council. I'm going to write up our turn. Our action is going to be hunting for potentially domesticateable animals for hunting, what new trait should be introduced?
>>31394You have lots of fleece and fur, as well as a couple of twigs and many stones, both large and small, and shiny ores. The Ore Tribe only eats the edible portions of the animal and usually leaves the rest to rot.
>>31394 Wanna know what could make cool instrument. Pottery.
Is it too late to join?
>>31382I say we opt for animal husbandry nowAs for an action though maybe scout to the east
>>31412No, more like >>31404 said. We'll need more than just pots if we're hoping to survive with a growing population.Also, we need a more sustainable food source.
>>31425Wait for new tribes mang
seriously, i dont really know wtf is going on except for giving ideas when inquired.
>>31420Wasteful heathens..>>31429Refer to>>31419
>>31429Nyet, we should see about turning some of the spare 'recycled' parts into bows...Horn and sinew bows
>>31432>>31417I wanted to work with ore fromThe beginning, we outnumber tree tribe, and we could have a good trading system between our people.
>>31274For culture this turn.... Elder VenerationFor tribe, unless someone protests, I say explore the coast.
>>31449Yeah actually building more might be a better idea, at least make us an edge when it comes to defencethe other tribes conspire against us
My liege, we need to do something on the potential alliance of Sand-Ore.
>>31435>>31445Looking for animals, need a cultural trait. We can't do animal husbandry if we don't have the animals>>31449Tree tribe is full sorryAnd we cant do bows that's another action. We need to deliberate on a cultural trait.
>>31478We will build the wall and we're getting those sand and forest niggers to build it for us!
>>31478Actually....Holy shit thats not a bad idea. FUCK THE COAST, LETS GET THE WALL UP
>>31484we can choose it or it is on OP?
OP when will you introduce new tribes?
>>31490Uh... it'll be on the other side, right?
>>31497We choose the cultural trait.
>>31488TREE AND SAND NYPA
>>31478I think that the wall would look more like this though
>>31484Cultural traitThe elders now decide on a childs strengths at a young age and put them to certain tasks acordingly
>>31490>Thinking the wall will workEHEHE
This is being really fun to just watch. I'm screencaping most of it too, just so I can do something productive on this thread. Oh and also, Im rooting for the ore tribe
>>31375Our action:The tribe begins looking for animals with strong spirits. Predatory animals that can be captured easily.Cultural trait: at birth the council inspects the newborn to find their strengths. As they age their position in society is decided based on their talents and strength.
>>31536seem logical, staring a system of caste for job distribution and specialization, not unlike the othersthe child on certain age is presented objects and what they choose is their path?stealing ASOIAF: ranger (warrior), steward (maintenance), builder (construction)
>>31569If you want we really only have 2 members, me and the priest.
>>31536Good job brotha I was getting a little frustrated.
Our Action: We talk to the eldest person of the ore tribe about traiding, marriage of children, etcNew Trait: EducationWe will be able to Build things more precisely and learn what to do and what not to do, can also help heal people in the tribe.
>>31537We counter this with our knowledge of fire we create trigger mechanism that blows up the wall if required. checkmate
>>31591Week and sickly newborns are consumed by the mother of the offspring so that their spirit may be reborn into a stronger body later
>>31631>Literal baby eatersSee, ore tribe?
>>31631Enjoy your diseases
>>31629Id protest, but we are really just dorfs, so mechanics is just natural to us.Hey Richard, can we sacrifice the culture advancement for a tribe action? I have a list on non culture things to do, and its growing.
>>31606If you want I can join, but Im on mobile, so I cant draw extreme stick figure action
>>31601I was thinking we would have a warrior, industrial and a spiritual caste
>>31651Yes, if there is a majority consensus, you can skip a culture action for a tribe action, or vice versa.I will give everyone 10 minutes to prepare their summaries while I prepare the *dun dun dun* NEWTRIBE
>>31643I dont think we'd go for the marrying of our children to the Heathens, but we could trade! We have so much shiny stuff.
>>31660This seems closer to the ideals of the tribe.
Hmm, the creation of Richard is intresting, maybe later I'll reincarnate myself into a new body this life cycle
>>31660is possible as steward and builder overlap each other>>31631i support my liege all the way, it is the natural way
>>31676Shit's about to get real.
>>31688Don't be a faggot, faggot.
Requesting the tribal council presence: Our Law system should be based on exiling criminal to foreign lands the only complication from that system is that other tribes be able to spy on Our tribe.
>>31676Can I pre-claim the new tribe?
So can I join the ore tribe?Also I think the new tribe needs a starting boost so they dont get crushed by the other tribes
>>31652Eh. We dont need that, we justidea ideas to work on. Extra voices helps
>>31677who said about marriage? we are going to rape your women, kill your men and eat your babies
>>31689You get it! It's nature taking a social form. We are just a group of very spiritual pragmatic people replicating the machinations of nature in our society. You are wise, chef
>>31707I'm the big guy of the new tribe
>>31731Want to fucking fight?
>>31699 kek, sorry mate. Im just a passingby anon that want to join but the team's full. Keep riding QM. And no, I'll try to follow the civil example being set by these fellow /qst/rangers
>>31717We don't eat their babies. They don't have our ancestors blood in their veins they are mongrels.
Various Ore Peoples, here is my current list of things should doCulture:-Animal Spirits-Music-Making of Constellations and a general interesting in the StarsTribe:-Leather working-Better Fortress-Explore the Coast-SMELTINGAny suggestions to add to this?
>>31726speaking of which, what can i help on the tribe summary, my liege
>>31738Yeah, Fuck You
IN YEAR FOUR, A DISCOVERY IS MADEBeginning in the next turn, members of the Mire Tribe may begin. They venerate insects and arachnids as being purer of form, and live inside a particularly hostile swamp. They know how to work with spider silk and insect husbandry.
>>31755I input the summary already for this round. I'm waiting to see how the animal search goes before I decide. However I think next round we should forgo the cultural trait and take two actions. Preferably something to do with infrastructure and animal husbandry
>>31778Claiming the new tribe.
>>31754My vote is to prioritize smelting, weapon and armor crafting.
>>31785>>31786Alright boys we spider now
>>31754Constellations and smelting should be your main stuff. Think about it: later on when the tribes start building boats you already have the "star know-how" that should help navigating the seas
Can I have a finalized summary from the Tribespeakers?
>>31794Name yourself accordinglyHow you mire folk feel about a little cannibalism?
>>31778Neat. Currently, not my issue. Have fun you creepy.... people eaters...>>31789Next turn I think we give up the culture advancement, do smelting and star stuff
>>31784yes, my liege. Why are we so poor in resource btw? Others will have metal soon
>>31794Im guessing our the illustrious leader for our new tribe is wyatt?
>>31807Culture: Elder VenerationTribe: Making our hole village into a Hill Fort.
>>31821You can decide later
>>31811There you go fag
>>31821All hail this Wyatt man!
>missed the roll callWell atleast a mire tribe, that lives on the swamp have Bray Wyatt as its leader >>31794
>>31811Like the great black widow, you can only eat those who you slept with during their life!(This also has the bonus of keeping up our population, since sex=more food)
>>31842>>31821Alright we need to prepare for our first turnBut first, can we get the graph thing about our starting cultural traits?
This storyline is juicy... The ore, sand, and tree tribes all are at war. Until one day the mire tribe is found and all hell breaks loose.Will the sand people and ore learn to get along with the degenerates? Or will the mires take over and overpower all tribes! Find out next time on CUTURAL EVO
>>31786>7 seconds behindREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
>>31869Think about all the dead body bits we put to useSome bodies may make good breeding pits for insects
>>31819I assume since we live in the trees and worship animals we have paid no mind to the ground. Which gives me an idea.. Mayans used to actually cultivate the forest around them. It looked wild but they tended to herbal plants and irrigated the forest to promote growth of food. We should do the same next round since we mostly consume plants
>>31879THE ORE TRIBE MUST JOIN UP WITH US TO TAKE DOWN THE FUCKING INBREDS
>>31892The solution is to clearly join the next tribe and establish myself the new leader.
>>31912>>31918Good. I look forward to cleansing the world of your madness.
>>31893Would you be willing to cocoon yourself to reach spiritual enlightenment?If so, we might see an alliance.
Before we choose to Ally ourselves with the sand tribe against the tree tribe people we should make a free trade agreement between the two tribes.
The fucking tree tribe and more tribe are having a fucking circle jerk of cannibalism. I hope you all enjoy Kuru you people eating fucks.
>>31927You realize OP creates the tribes? He isn't doing monstergirls man just drop it lol.
Meta-ingCan we just shouting and bluffing for now ?War should be at later or endgame.
>>31912You have the fewest number, if anyone here is likely to consist of inbreds its you my dick in the sand castle amigo>>31932Maybe a colliding of faith might naturally happen a long the way as ours is in its infancy but as is now i wouldnt mind an alliance of resources of like minded men
>>31947Since when did we eat people?
OK THOUGHTS ON THISActions: Travel through tree, mire tribesGo to the nomans land with atleast 5-10 peopleGo hunting for foodBuild housesTraits:EducationHuntingGatheringExplorationMulti-TaskerFarmerMaster Mater (higher chance of twins)Lore-tellingLore-KeeperMoar?
>>31947Nigga did I ever say I'm gonna eat my kids?No, I'm gonna eat some spiders. Go back to your cacti, sandman.
>>31912Im okay with this idea.>>31946Im kinda against trading with baby eaters... but those sweet resources....>>31958Thats what I assume is going on currently. No real wars
>>31946trade my ass, we will raids as we like
>>31932We Revere our ancestors and you think humans are trash. I see no hope for a formal alignment but I do see opportunities for trade.
>>31967Fuck you, stay out of our lands.
>>31965You arent, he's referring to my negotiations.Sharing body parts we havent got use for a bug breeding pits
>>31967Nah, we need to work with what we've got. We've barely done anything in our own little oasis. I say we take up a government.
>>31981HOOPLA!How did the wall building go?
>>31946 >>31859Yeah that's what I assumedShit talking no actual war
>>31972>consider spiders the higher lifeform>eats them for food
>>31965>>31972See >>31869The spiders show us the way of life, brothers.
>>32005Eating the spiders gives us their natural powers.
>>31992We use every part of the human my friend. We are very green.
>>31967how you sandy going to get pass us?
>>32014But you're killing higher beings, it implies they are weaker than you.
I swear someone fill my lungs with sand
>>32009Nigga, i ain't eating my wife
>>32014What if we find any new and interesting spiders in our forest. Would you trade for them? Silk might be very beneficial for us.
>>31981So, for this turn I say we do Smelting, and Explore the coast. No culture. While its all well and good we have a back water of stuff that could be used, and I want a fishing village for more food ASAPAnd complaints?
>>32029you telling me spinning web is not an ancient mystical power?
>>31999The wall building did not occur yet, unfortunately, as you have a lack of sophisticated enough tools and materials to create more than "a big lump of rocks."
>>32019What about the corpses of our enemies?We dont eat them because of their tainted ancestral bloodPlus with the sand and ore people ganging up we need to get some friends
>>32035my liege is wise >>32052HAHA.jpg
>>32027What were your thoughts on this Chef? Take two actions. Animal husbandry (if we find any) and terraforming our forest to be more endemic to beneficial plant life>>31900
>>32048How does this have to do with what I said.You are eating what you think are higher beings. To eat them, you must kill them.If you can kill them to the point that they are what you regularly eat, would that not imply you are more powerful than them?
Should I try one of these sorts of quests with cultists?
What do my spider bros think about trading silk for wood from the tree people and using it to create "nests" where we harbor spiders and other sorts of things?
>>32053We haven't even made contact with these folks in game yet. I'm not even sure if we actually know they exist.
>>32071Sounds like it could work, but you should have more cults and players per cult.
>>32060seem ok but those guys are like shiting a ton of actions and we are like only 2
>>31967Fuck the no mans land the desert is its own no mans land. Lets start establishing a central meeting place that multiple tribes can meet at once per year. We exchange information and materials for trade with other groups of people. That way we have multiple groups of people so they can't destroy our main group if they actually manage to survive in the desert.
Can the Mire Tribe get a stat screen to see where we at?Also, I'm thinking about researching nets and poisons, so we can be more like our great divine leaders.>>32034She's dead anyway bro. Just take a bite, she won't mind.How about this for a emblem?
Give me some time to create the culture sheet for the Mire Tribe, and then you can begin your turn.>>32071Do it.
>>32087I like it. We can sleep in hammocks too!
>>32052Is incidental good, cause yay we made a baby
>>32108Oh god we ended up going for the eating dead children optionI thought we were going for the 3 castes system'?
>>32087We need to make contact in game for formal trade negotiations to begin. But the trees are our homes I'm unsure if we can spare much. >>32098They can rant and rave at us from their little areas. We have to make decisions based on what's best for the tribe, not for warefare.
>>32100But my wife was perfectly healthy and pregnant just yesterday, what happened?
Requesting trade with sand tribe:Wheat and Palm Tree Wood for Tool making in exchange for Ore and Salt.
>>32144The hell did they get wheat and palm trees....Also, we have tools. We make them out of the brush and rocks.
>>32144Hm... What type of tool EXACTLY.
>>32048>>32069I agree spider eating sounds dumb desu
>>32144we have clay pots and figurines as well as sandstone and limestone. OP do we have salt?
>>32090I'd be basing them on the Gropagas of Lord Inglip and the opposing cults.
>>32134i fucking still dont how this work>>32144stop bluffing, your wheat are still in unrefined grass form in addition not having milling, go eat sand/rock/grass
>>32134That's what was in the summary I was given.
>>32174so it is you, i will remember you.fuck you and your resourceclay, salt, metal, why not uranium?
>>32140She died. Life is cruel and there are no gods, only insects. Her inner shell will now be revealed from her weak flesh, and it is our job to help her in that process.Besides, there are plenty of other bees in the hive dude. You'll find someone new soon enough.
why are you my liege?My Tree Brother, what do? i am just a chef
>>32179Player made cults?
>>32166Hmm. How about for a cultural addition we build nests (which are basically shrines) where we construct beds of silk to sleep like the powerful ones?And for an action we offer a trade to the tree people, silk for wood to construct shit
>>32147>>32194WHoops i let that through welp fuck
>>32108The tree tribe will take two actions this round>begin attempting to domesticate the deer beasts as animal companions for riding and hunting and meat when they pass. Once a deer beast is consumed by a person they have inherited it's spirit and may become a shaman if the so wish>the tree tribe begins to cultivate plant life in the forest. They begin trying to promote food plants and kill weeds. Attempting basic irrigation by diverting small streams into areas that need more water. Poisonous plants will be replanted in designated areas until a use can be found for them.
>>32174The only tribe with access to salt is the Ore Tribe, and they do not know how to harvest it yet.
>>32223You need to spend one turn sending an emissary to a tribe before you can offer trades.
>>32198 this could be an intresting belief tho. Yall mire people beliefs in prophetic doppleganger or something
>>32181Oh man I totally forgot to write about the caste system..Ok, so next round we can take a cultural step and add the caste system I guess. I added the baby thing as an addendum and Richard just flew with it I guess lol
>>32198But i liked my wife.I don't want a new oneI propose a cultural advancement of life-long monogamy in her memory
Meta-ingHow long will this take? Is all major players still active/awake?
>>32288It's 5 PM where I live.
Hey Ore tribe we have craftsmen to make figure of you nature spirits and to hold your ore. We can trade that for some tools.
>>32270You and your wife only play small parts in the great hive. Don't be so selfish.We can only achieve strength by working together for the greater good.>>32288It's 11 PM where I live, but I'm staying up until 3 AM to catch GoT.
>>32288Checking in I guessOn average each round has taken 20-30 minutes for OP to finish. I'll be active all day as long as the thread keeps moving at this pace. No caste system for next round. As for our action you want to check out that freaky spider infested swamp next door?
>>32299dont fall for it, figure made by pagan is tainted and literally not working
>>32288Im still kicking, just waiting for the end turn or something Ore related to happen.This dictator ship is dull I tell ya>>32298Join the club QM>>32299O look something ore related. Hmmmm. I think we are good on tools, we know how to make picks (I think at least). Also the nature spirits have no form, for they are the land. (subject ot change soon)
>>32198>>32270To honor your dead wife how about we add a new belief where when you grow old and frail you are considered ultimately useless and fed to spiders to be reborn into your arachnid form, as the one anon mentioned, a prophetic doppelgänger?
>>32223I like the nest idea. I also want to put a big focus on community, since our human bodies are so weak on their own.
>>32326Sure. Mold your weak skin for the glory of the manylimbed!
>>32314i think we should work on the caste asap as being the way of job specialization, the way of progression. Let the Mire tribe be , they means no harm
>>32330Agreed, urbanized cities will be prioritized over villages
>>32314I meant SO not NO caste system sorry
>>32323Cultural:We religiously explain the art of smelting to the tribe members as a art given to us by the sprits.
>>32365my liege is so humble.>>32362reminds me that spiders are fucking solitary but not you guys?
What'd I miss?
Okay so other sand tribe bros are around not much just discussion of somethings
>>32360The caste system would be a cultural trait. What should we do for our action? I suggested making contact so that we can have a an infusion of new product and begin trade
>>32384Humans are too weak on their ownSpiders may live alone because they are powerful
>>32383Thats already on the list of the to do this turnNo culture, just tribe. Smelting and Exploration of the Coast for stuff.
whoa thanks for partially mentioning me, mire khan. Even if Im just a formless sound, I'll pray for your clan safety
>>32383how the fuck u ppl going to these, OP mentioned u cant even stack a fucking stone wall, how can you reach the high temperature?
>>32393I'm back, just went to get a snack. What's our plan?
>>32383you don't know how to smelt yet, but I'm sure if you start throwing things onto the fire you'll figure it out eventually.
>>32395my liege is open-minded. May i suggest with Mire Tribe first?
>>32411Copper maybe? Campfires are pretty hot.
>>32404We are exploring the coast basically from the beginning of the game and op says we can not extract it.
>>32393Im alive, op is in est, probs virginia
Caste as cultural and contact as actions my votesky
>>32431throwing things into campfire and chantingbest wish >>32442i am fucked now
>>32435Meta-we totally have no clue the more folks exist. We need to go meet them by going to the swamp and establishing first contact. I know it's confusing since we have all been talking shit to each other, but none of us have actually met yet except for the sand and ore folks and that only happened last round
Okay mire bros, for cultural trait do we do the arachnid-after-death thing, and for action we attemt to build a community?
>>32450Philadelphia. You might've been able to guess this if you've been at my Hotline Miami 09 quest :#
>>32449also i refering to salt on this post
>>32449hey, you guys go fishing yet?
>>32425>>32450I think establishing a system that states that the best craftsmen are the highest members of society.
>>32468Sure. After that I think we should make a deal with the tree people to get their trapping technology, so we can have webs to catch animals with.
>>32462I did some digging, with your average campfire around 900 F, would could smelt Tin and Lead. We could also smelt the a common copper ore called malachite
>>32467Yeah so we just choose scout east as the option and then next turn learn enough of their language to communicate and then we wont have to worry anymore
>>32484What about democracy? If we enter a caste system, we'll be no better than the people-eaters.
>>32492Agreed, let them come to us for a trade so we can use our action for domestic purposes.
>>32477Im talking about checking for stuff like crabs and fish.Also, we could probably learn to extract it from our Saltwater river
>>32469Im in md, lol im not a hacker
>>32497>>32462Alright. So we are agreed on doing caste system and exploring East then?
>>32222>>>/fit/But, yes, if you like.
Meta-ingThis concept is nice where we are divided into fractions and shittalks each other
>>32517yes, my liege.
>>32501That is a good idea but we also need to promote artisanism?? if that is a wordMaybe they get special privileges or something
Tribe theme coming up:https://theinsectworshipcollective.bandcamp.com/album/al-azif
>>32534Chef, you are a great asset to your community and your ancestors are proud
>>32545Meta-ingcare to tell what kind of place you guys are living? desert?
>>32562my liege is generous at word and deeds.
>>32583There's a map at the beginning of the thread
Alright, can I have a turn summary for each tribe?For onlookers - the fifth tribe will be introduced around turn 7-8. No, you may not "call it" for spots.
>>32583... Read the beginning post.
Okay, fellas, what should we agree on for this turn?
>>32599with many greenland/greenisle/whatever the shit called it is. How do guys go into crafting and clay-making? The specialty should be like herding of those Arabian tribe. Or u guys are like the Egytian ?
>>32631We could also try and make musical instruments like pipes or hollowed tubes. we could also do xylophone type things.
>>32497I like this guy too>>32614>>32229
>>32614No culture this turn.Copper Smelting, and exploring the coast for food and anything that might be of use. Like... drift wood. I dont know I just want crab and fish
>>32631I think we should go for a gov't system though
>>29797I'm too high for thos
>>32614Cultural trait: The old and useless are given to the spiders, so they can be reborn in an arachnid form.Action: Put a big focus on strengthening our community over our individuality. Only together may we thrive.
>>32636Sounds neat. And for culture? I'm still going for a central government.
>>32637Aw thanks shaman man
>>32666hey their satanYeah central gov't system is good
>>32636Meh, musical instruments doesnt matter.
Is our scout still here btw?
>>32673K. Chief, any suggestions?
>>32705hehehe, we know it now.
Tribal System, we all talk about ideas/ governmentFor the Trait: someone choose
>>32744Pictograms on our pottery To make learning easier
>>32741>>32777My Brotha is an engineer!
As I write up TURN 5, I give unto you... A gift!A GIFT OF WORLD MAP
>>32786 Boats have just jumped up on priorities....Also, is there more world to explore? Besides this island?
>>32786So do we live in a swamp?And, again, is our Scout still here? Because if he's not I think I'd like someone to replace him.
Shaman BroWe have got to make contact with spider guys and expand our territory, we have second best point of access to new lands we have to make use of it now rather than later
>>32796I think we need to figure out a way to expand into the other territories. Don't you agree Ore tribe.
>>32819Yes, the Mire Tribe lives in a swamp.
>>32827my Brotha is ambitious, raft would be easy to us or we can simply swim to that island>but are those religions reserve for later tribes?
>>32843Collaborative Boats!Why do you think Im working on with this coast thing? Im also gonna push for better metal stuff.
What does having control of 2 regions give us?Extra actions per turn?
>>32637my liege still awake?
I say we should maybe sacrifice our culture this turn for a monolith, if we're also going to spend an action point on boat building.
>>32886You could use pottery to shape tools better. We can exchange this with each other don't you agree. Clay casts in exchange for metal tool heads.
>>32895The other regions are reserved for other tribes to spontaneously appear in, but if you conquer someone then you simply get access to their resources, and an additional action per turn of either category.
>>32912warring anytime anywhere?
I really like this qst!! I just read the whole thread and I love how all these people work together to make new cultures! Here is a funny pic of my dog as a reward
>>32917Good luck trying to survive in a desert shit lords.
Gotta go guys. I ellect chef as leader in my absence
>>32918I really, really, really like that image.
Since the sand tribe has a better education than us i suggest we request schematics and books from them so we can build our wall.
>>32942oi, me here 6 am
>>32909That doesnt sound bad to me. >>32917Have fun warring the mountains. >>32939This turn for the Ore Tribe:Culture: Begin to look to the stars, making constellations and stuffTribe: Begin to make Copper tools
>>32951With that last turn we subjugated spiritsMagic exists boys, time to get crazy
>>32741Brotha u there?
>>32970sadly i think it is on deer herding. Planning now?i suggests:explore east to make contact with Mire
WE WUZ SAND PEOPLE AND SHIT EDITIONwe wuz buildin fire and shitZFor the Trait: Making electromagnetic
>>32968I suggest this as our new fashion style. More limbs!
>>32909>>32959How does this sound Sand bros>Clay bricks for trait >trading with ore tribe for action we get copper tools they get clay casts.
>>32985Sadly i'll be needing to go to bed soonLurkers theres already a space free and soon theres gonna be another, feel free to join the master race
LURKERS, THE TREE TRIBE IS OPENING VACANCIES. FIRST COME FIRST SERVE.
>>33013Can I suggest a monolith for the trait?
>>33039We also have some opening here in Ore Tribe.1... maybe 2? I dont know HEY ORE PRIEST YOU ALIVE?
>>33046Monolith is a good idea
Do I have any tribe mates left?Because I want to start thinking about how we differentiate ourselves from the other tribes in a good way.The Sand tribe has education and pottery, the Ore tribe has copper, Trees have farming. I'm thinking we start using or silk to make fishing nets. We do live in a swamp, after all.
>>32996Spiders have eight legs, nigga.
>>33063Thanks. I just figure if we're centralizing our tribe, it would be cool if we were the first to have a monument.
>>33062I AM ALIVEEEEEEEEEEE...... THE SINS NEVER DIE
Some ideas for all tribes
me alone on top of tree
>>33083Okay only one opening. Also, any suggestion Mr Priest?>>33088You seem.... a bit out of date...
If I don't get a reply from my other tribemates in the next 10 replies, can I open 2 new vacancies?Cuz I'm kinda alone over here.
>>33039Can I join as a Mire Tribe? Or are they arent recruiting yet?
>>33124Yes, you can.>>33088You're a little late, Senpai.
Allow me to serve, O Priest >>33118I also think that yiur suggestion of the fishnets to be grand. After all, those fishes are weak creatures, unlike our revered bugs
If a new tribe is still opening soon then I will just wait to join it instead of joining one of the openings in the established tribes
seriously speaking, going to retire soon. Anyone want to takeover Tree Tribe?
Lurking, Quite engaged/entertained
>>33196A new tribe will not be opening for another couple of hours, and the tree tribe needs new leaders for the time being.If nobody claims them, I will begin performing their turn-ly actions, and I am kind of an imaginative douchebag :3
>>31778>>31778Are there any slots left? If so i want in
>>33208-MetaWould you be joining us again? Then maybe the muted tribes can continue play, albeit they wont do anything relly significant. Maybe QM can just put a fun but meaningless flavor text in their action or cultural progress to play along their absence
>>33234There is three slots open in the Tree Tribe.For EVERYONE ELSE who is currently playing, remember that, even if the thread is getting slow, you still have a turn to be planning! :3
>>33234We have lots of slots! I think every tribe does
>>33234There's still one spot left in the mire tribe, and three in the tree tribe.
>>33242I have a plan for the current turn, and I have a general plan for the next couple of them
do some jobs before transcending:Cultural Trait:Caste system determine from birth by the elders, for job specialization. They are Ranger (warrior, patrolling); Farmer (grow plant and herd deer); Harvester (forest harvester and lumbering, building)
erm, can i just joining for a longer bit of time to discuss with the tree tribe successors?
>>33247Can I join my dude
>>33273Sure, if you like bugs. Just pick a role.
Tree tribe open 2 slots now, another 1 soon pls
>>33272My turn is Copper Tools for Tribe, and constellations for Culture
So ore tribe bros do you want to trade tools for casts?
>>33283aye aye sir, reporting in
>>33292>ore tribe bros do you want to trade tools for castsYeah lets do this. LETS US COMBINE OUR POWER TO KEEP BACK THE BLOODY INSANE BARBARIANS.
>>33281I'll guess i'll take up the hard work lmao.Also I second the idea of working with silk from spiders.
So as our action I think we should start creating fishnets out of silk and start fishing.And for our culture trait, I'm kinda thinking about spreading our insect overlords to other regions. They are divine beings after all, and these other tribes should revere them as we do.Either that, or make more fashion out of our silk.
>>33301 Ok niceOut turn looks like building a monolith, and also developing a central leadership for our tribe
>>33308Methinks we're still a bit thin on numbers for a caste system. And our culture is a bit self-destructing as it is. Why not encourage polygamy?
>>33039Claimed.Gotta start hunting non-treepeople for food, mateys.
>>33335 How fucking worse can you get you fucking psychotic people eaters.
>>33335u are right on small population. For polygamy, u mean to increase population right? If so, may i suggest FFA fucking system where sexual practice is open,encouraged>>33344hello, we dont eat shitblooded people btw
>>33292The thread is dying, TIME FOR WAR. WE SEND 10 MEN FROM OUR TRIBE TO THE TREES TO SLAP THEY FACES
>>33311C-call me a heathen, for all I care.. Is it just me or Spiders are actually superior than the other bugs? Spiders eat bugs! T-trapped ans s-spin them in their silky nets! Oh! Bugs forgive my insight! P-protect me from the scrubbling bugs, O Strong Spiders!
New tribe springing?
>>33382Stop that>>33390Soon, you goofball
>>33365Actually Ive heard of worse things than Polygamy.>>33382We should archive this, Get the QM a twitter, and pick it up sometime later>>33390Kid we have issues with keeping the current tribes running, join one of those. Im in need of fresh ideas dangit
>>33382Slow down there, hoss! We have like 30 people, and it took us 4 turns to get our numbers up 10. We don't want to start a war we can't win.
>>33406We still have about another 475 posts and 48 horus or so before autosage. Don't worry about it.Can I get a turn summary from the four tribes?
>>33387>>33387I agree! Spiders are strong, and live as queens of bugs! Maybe we could mimick them, so our warriors are as strong as they are....
>>33414Copper Tool Making in TribeStars and Constellations in Culture
>>33370Well, we are too few to keep eating eachother, and even if we try and have a lot of babies (wich we should) it wouldn't be enough. Also, with some spices and good cooking, them shitebloods taste the same as other treefolk! I'm not saying going to the mire to hunt some guys, just search closer to home. I'm pretty sure we are not the only settlement of tree-tribals in the whole jungle, aren't you? I bet there are other villages of the tree culture in the forest.
>>33320Yes! The other tribe should respect our spider overlords! Meanwhile those bugs are.. Are... I-Insect! J-just Insect! Spider protect me! Aoh..
>>33387The bugs are still your superior, you heretic!One month in the silk farms for you!So we make fishnets, but what about culture?Do we starts spreading the bugs, or do we make fashion? Or do we join the tree people in their cannibalism?
>>33426Speaking of wich, have we discovered fire yet?
>>33431Spiders are not fucking bugs.
>>33431You can send these groggly hands to work, but you can kill the idea that had spread over our tribe members, just like the superior webs of the spider....But yeah, fashion could work. We must appear as grand as we could be if we want to convince those weakling about our tradition
>>33414I speak on behalf of the sand tribe.Action - trade pots for metals with Ore tribe.Culture - Monolith.
>>33440I think we know a bit more about spiders than you do.Don't you have sand to get out of your asscrack?>>33414Action: Make fishnets and start fishing.Culture: Focus on making beautiful and well-made clothing out of silk.
>>33426>>33438first, Mire is considered neutral-friendly whilst Ore and Sand are jealous of us. why we cannibals must serve a purpose, not simply as food source as so much fruit, nuts and berries and roots to gather from forest.Cannibalism is a funeral practice, as not wastage to against our beliefwe should have fire or else we are fucked very hard
By the by, as a reward for being FUCKING AWESOME PLAYERS, here is a preview of the next tribe.
>>33462Hey, that's slander! We don't have fire, yet!
>>33465Jealous? I think its more along the lines of "holy shit guys are crazy", driving together the Sciences guys and crazy ass Dorfs what with there many gods of nature.>>33467Looks fun>>33475I think we all have fire. Thats like... a staple of humanity
>>33475da fuq now, did Ore discover fire?
>>33487Ore has had fire for a while, yes.
>>33462>those fliesDon't you dare associate those beautiful dipterans with those ignorant dirtshaggers.
>>33492>>33487We started Metallurgy, so I assume thats a yes
>>33481u guys eat rock and rat and possum >>33492so others not?
>>33481Fire? Whats that? A new name for our glorious and better-than-bugs Lord Spiders?>*whipping sounds*Protect me Bugs for I have sinned... Aoohhhh
>>33452If we want our tribe to prosper we should only venerate the superior divine entities! I say we study spiders and their silk, See if we can learn use it to craft goods!
>>33496was there action on fire discovery?
>>33498More like rock, rat, mountain goat, and now crabs as of late
I'm just munching on some popcorn. Want some Richard?
>>33506I assumed we started with it
>>33499is everyone in the mire tribe a spider bondage obsessed weeb
>>33481Well, even if all tribes have fire, there's still the question if we know how to [i]make[/i] fire. For example, the Tasmanian natives didn't know how to make fire until the Dutch taught them how to. Instead, they kept in the center of the tribe a firepit or some shit that they lit up with burning branches and shit after a lightning bolt set the forest on fire. If the fire was lost, they had to go to a neighboring village to borrow some burning branches.It is thought that the Sentinelese people do that too, although it is not known for a fact since every time anyone gets close to them they don't stop chucking spears at them until they leave.
>>33522I know, it's disgusting.
>>33521just saw the pic, sorry. but i had to say, u guys are far more advanced in tech without other cons
>>33522Elder, I hope I'm not being disrespectful in any way by saying this but; spiders are superior than all of us, even you, oh great leader, we shouldn't think of them with lust, but rather respect them and venerate them!
>>33520>kniveswe are fucked
>>33522>implying you wouldn'tGo make a ceramic fleshlight or something.
>>33506The Ore started with it. Nobody else has fire right now.>>33522Probably.>>33458here is the updateI still need a turn summary from the Tree Tribe.
we need pointy sticks for poking the unruly tree spirits away from our plantations
>>33531so, action is fire discovery?trait will be FFA sex with periodic orgy ?
>>33556Rudimentary knives. They are only capable of ripping at fur and wool with significant sawing and effort, but it's better than bare hands.
>>33520Hey Richard, how would cultural meshing work? Id assume that as timed passed and two groups traded, stuff like beliefs and ideas would mix.>>33544From what I gather, the Ore have only Basic Metal tools, basic smelting, and mining. We dont have nice stuff like animal husbandry, oral tradition, writing, or farming. We are just really specialized.>>33568Okay scratch that, that is a bit OP being the only fools with fire....
Is Mire full?
>>33568ST for life. What's our next move, gang?
>>33583Yeah. Although there's a new tribe coming in soon.
>>33522Also which will our actions for this turn be? I'm pretty sure everyone here agrees on silk working/farming.No idea what we'll do in culture tho? Maybe go from insect and aracnid to arachnid only veneration?
>>33559Listen up you insect fucker the great sand tribe has a rich history culture. We are the only group of people have an education system and a writing system designed to promote the growth of out future generations. GO let ants crawl up you ass hole or something.
>>33575well I will do the recap then>The tree people abandon monogamy for a free form of loving, boosting the birthrate>they craft basic spears from sharpened branches to ward off beasts
>>33567Even when you are just a helping hand (heh get it?)>*whipping sounds for being in a silk farm*You should always speak your tribe name with pride! Aooooh
>>33579Hmmmm.... what now in the glorious Theocracy of the Ore Tribe.Eh. Im going for Tanning pelts, and then using those pelts to make tribal drums for sweet music culture
>>33599u da man
>>33599I second this future meal's idea. Fire can wait. There'll always be lightning bolts from where to grab it if we need some.
>>33613Skipped forest tribe.
>>33548>>33594Trait: making clay bricks or clay slabs for writing and transportation of knowledge.Action trading with the ore tribe
Is my name showing? My browsers acting crazy
>>33623 why can i never type numbers right>>33584
>>33623What she we trade? This is the third time around, so I think we should go for furs or something.
>>33623What we trading now? I dotn think trade needs to be continuous, otherwise... well honestly thats a waste of your time
>>33599>>33648Trade is continuous. Until a trade deal is unanimously called off, it is assumed that both societies have access to the traded goods.
>>33648We can always trade a culture for technology.
>>33594Arachnid only veneration would allow us to use insects for more nefarious purposes without offending our overcreatures.I'm also kinda thinking about cultivating some honey. Or maybe research poisons, if the other tribes start acting up. Or we can do some trading? We have fish and clothing now.>>33627Yeah it's here now.
>>33659Ok thats useful
Just because I kind of lost track, here are the CURRENT POPULATION COUNTSOre Tribe: 50 people. (1 incidental birth per year)Sand Tribe: 30 people. (1 incidental birth per year)Tree Tribe: 36 people. (2 incidental births per year)Mire Tribe: 27 people. (1 incidental birth per year)
>>33613We should use swamp we live in to our advantage.Do we have wood chopping yet? Because if we do I have an idea that might revolutionize the way we live.
my ppl still here, want to discuss the next action and trait?
>>33662You want fire? Or perhaps the glorious knowledge of the fact that there are gods, specifically powerful nature spirits?The only thing I can think of that you have that we would want would be like.... That pictogram stuff?>>33659Well thats good. Also, do we have berries and stuff? I ask because Im trying to build a highly cultured state here, and we need pigments for art.Also. WHY DOES ORE TRIBE HAVE ALL THE PEOPLE? LIKE REALLY EVEN I THINK ITS WEIRD.Next turn Im founding a bloody fishing village....
>>33686So sand bros we will make bricks?Also should our action be breeding? I have an idea for another action but A we will need more peopleor B we will need the help of the Ore tribe
>>33690>Culture trait: Develop rudimentary reincarnation beliefs; when people die they are reborn as trees>Tribe action: Figure out how to make fire
>The bark spider's silk is 10 times stronger than Kevlar by weight.http://news.discovery.com/tech/gear-and-gadgets/body-armor-spider-silk-121015.htm>Peasants in the southern Carpathian Mountains used to cut up tubes built by Atypus and cover wounds with the inner lining. It reportedly facilitated healing, and even connected with the skin. This is believed to be due to antiseptic properties of spider silk and because the silk is rich in vitamin K, which can be effective in clotting blood.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spider_silk#Human_usesWe can make armor and basic medicine with spider silk!>>33690We don't have woodchopping yet, no. We can probably trade it with the Ore tribe, although cutting down trees will almost certainly piss off the Tree tribe, who neighbour us.
Now that I think about it, maybe we should use our action on food. Surely, lizards and cacti can't last forever (and probably aren't all that good for you), so we should start going all Nile up in this bitch. No offense, Ore.
>>33721>Figure out how to make fireWhat are you gonna use for firewood? You're not going to burn nature spirits, are you?
>>33613Ah! Our tribe is even brighter than before. Let us praise the spiders and the bugs for these glorious day. But wait, havent I seen it all before? Yeah! I remember praying for a blessing for the Mire Tribe before? Can there actually life before.. Life? Maybe our lords spiders and bugs knows about this.. They have eggs, and eggs are basicslly living creatures right? Should humans, altough weak, had an "egg" or "living" phase before Living here too?
A NEW TRIBE HAS OPENED UP, IN THE ORANGE AREA >>32786 HEREThey are the Brush Tribe. They number 15, and they will begin their next turn at the beginning of the next turn. However, there is the team opening for them right now.
>>33725Honestly I dont even bloody know how Im feeding these dammed people. I think we really do eat the rocks and that scares me.>>33720What you need Sand Bro, I have an excess of people to throw at problems
>>33734Well, we can say that whenever a tree dies, it gets reincarnated as an animal, and whenever an animal dies, it gets reincarnated as a person, so no harm is done.
>>33721bu..but we needs to cut down trees.
>>33725I was thinking the ore tribe could help us dig a canal along our territory so we could both profit from a nile and make it longer.
>>33738What are you suggesting, Tribemember? Is there an egg inside a human woman's belly?
>>33757so what we are doing is speedup the reincarnation to back to human and it is good?
Boy, I sure do love living, how about you guys?
>>33764>>33760>>33755THE BRUSH TRIBE IS FULL! You may discuss matters amongst your teammates, but you will not make a culture or tribe action until next turn. Your culture sheet will be posted in a minute.
>>33759Great idea! That way it's two for one (we learn tech). And for tech? Is our chief still here? I haven't heard him pitch in in a while.
>>33760>>33764Hey Brush Tribe BrosWhats our plan?
>>33759Now that sounds bloody glorious.... but way out of reach. Like really. To far broWe could found like a joint Sand-Ore trading town on the border between the biomes I guess though. Like I said, people to waste>>33755>>33760>>33764We apparently have lurkers, but somehow Im running a tight ship dictatorship here. What the hell Anons?
Damn lag, I was actually gonna join.
>>33793Obviously, every member of our tribe is perfectly happy with their assigned purpose, and always strives to be their best!
>>33759This would take far too much time it would be better cooperation between sand tribe tech and our ore to use smelting for weapons as the tree tribe is a near threat.
>>33792Even better idea, we have a underground tunnel where we transport things leasing from us to the ores
>>33793Spreading the one truth of happiness!
>>33780Sure, and eating a sickly baby then wouldn't be looked at by the parents of the child as murder, but as mercy, as we would release the kid from such weak form into a sturdy tree.Plus, fire is good for keeping civilizations alive.
>>33798Sorry! You can always advice, though. I don't think Op minds that.
>>33722We can optimize our fishing yield by building pile-dwelling houses in our swamps, and hanging our strong silk fishing nets, just like spider set up their nets to trap bugs!
>>33815>>33810>>33793I wonder, what you guys are on? Must be damn plants. Don' trust the Burning green.
>>33796An Ore-Sand tribe trading post would definitely be useful.
>>33846Agreed.>>33814, your thoughts?
>>33811Holy shit your alive? I thought you got lost in the caverns....>>33814Again, it took us like 2 years to build rabbit warrens, unless we can pump out picks soon its not happening. Im gonna push for it soon but.... Its gonna be a while>>33811Honestly with our weaponry and huge numbers, the only advantage the Forest guys have is the terrain at this point>>33846Ill get on that next turn
Culture Sheet for the Brush Tribe
>>33878The vape tribe
>>33819right on, so we agree on:Trait: reincarnation belief, ppl to tree to animal back to ppl, lumbering as mean to speedup reincarnation while refrain from animal killing as it is direct ancestor/incarnation and would bringing curse and pain to be incarnared new-born babiesaction: fire discovery, most probably by lightning event
>>33878Don't do drugs, kids.
>>33903I do agree, my most honorable consumer!
>>33878>>33898Yup that.... That sounds right.Also Richard, can I rename my people to the Mountain Folk? Cause it sounds nicer than Ore Tribe. Plus I can give myself a way cooler title
>>33913Near the mid-game, renaming will be available as an option.
>>33824I like it! Although it will piss off the Tree tribe, but they hate everyone else anyway.I've also been looking at the Spanish Fly, which is apparently a quite powerful aphrodisiac (and toxin), almost like a natural Viagra.If we cultivate it, it'll boost our population, and we can trade it with the Brush tribe so they can always be happy!
Anyone love to communicate with Tree Tribe?we have deer meat and milk, fruits, nuts, berries, roots, honey, lumber.
>>33776No, Priest, I remember being a thoughtless sound, and praying for mire tribe's longevity! >>32255 I mean, when we die, what part of us thats exactly being "reborn" as a spider? This confuses me greatly, O Priest. I mean, with more catchable food and comfortable wear, I have more time to think, thats allWell, if not, we can always built whatever you priestness desire>>32270
>>33932Nice try, cannibal.
>>33906 So should the trait be one taken out of the Ore tribe book.Veneration of elders because they have lived the longest they know the most.And then make babies as the action.Or should we make the trait writing slabs to move information around?
>>33932You hate outsiders though. You probably need to revert that first.
>>33924I am disappointed, but I accept this. Honestly Im interested in how long we keep this going... >>33932Im busy doing much more productive things, like making music and broing it up with the Sand Folk. Ill get to you sooner or later.
>>33945Education. The Ore's have great tech, but almost no culture. If we advance in one and they the other, we'll certainly beat those insane tree-dwelling.
>>33927there is no spain in CEVO world.
>>33878Im thinking we need to weave masks that are always smiling to prove how happy we always are.Also sadness should represent "possession" from the one enemy of our god
>>33932Speaking of deer, maybe once our population starts growing because of our daily orgies, we can start setting up hunting outposts, wich would pretty much be two treehouses, both holding the end of a huge net, maybe made out of vines, to catch any animals that go there for enough time for our hunters to catch them.Actually, we could do it on our main village right now, too!Also, OP, is the player village the only human settlement in the entire region they have? Or are there roaming bands of wild humans/smaller NPC camps of the same culture around the region aswell?
>>33824I really like this idea, friend. Sounds like something what the spider wants us to do
>>33927So, if we trade with the ore tribe, we might learn wood working from their merchants, but the problem is what should we trade? As far as i know our current options are silk and silk derived goods or seafood
>>33995Forgot pic releted.
>>31155someone should update this for the modern times
Hey guys, I have read everything finally and have noticed that Ore tribe only has 2 consistent players. Now if I can join it will be 3. (almost 12pm here so lots of time).I vote for developing our culture to value the use of tools to make better tools to be more productive.I vote on our action being used to break an area of rocky ground up where there is grass struggling to grow and removing the rocks and then transporting soil there. Hopefully we can get some agriculture going on. Then slowly develop better foodstuffs or even just grow grass to have animals grown for meat and milk.>mountain verification pictures
>>34007>>33824I think it'd be more efficient if we ask the Ore tribe to develop woodcrafting, and then trade our fishingnets and clothing for their tools.>>33978ah boo. I wanted mah bonerdrug.
>>33956>The Ore's have great tech, but almost no culture.I like to think we have lots of culture.... I mean we have an entire system of belief, a small pantheon, a system of choosing Shamans, we made the bloody constellations, and we are about to have music! I also think we are pretty backwater tech wise, just real advanced in one field compared to you lot. I mean I still trying to figure out how I feed all these people! We dont have writing or oral tradition, (which I need to grab sooner or later really), and nothing related to gathering more food.
>>33984We should search our lands for the sacred plant our God has told us about that when burnt the smoke brings happiness to all who partake.
>>33975I think brick making might actually benefit us then. We could just build houses walls and settlements out of brick. They would not be able to destroy our settlements. The first brick village could be the trading post. Also potential tribe symbol?
>>33948it is true. >>33995i think we eat only the dead or dying animals and we had deer herd farm right OP? we can milk those deer and maybe ferment as alcohol. We should be the only ppl in there.
Im sorry, going to get food. BRB second sandnig in charge
>>34050You herd deer as the ancients did wolves. Most of the time, your people are mostly vegetarian.
>>34038I think, as per our religion, animals are infinitely inferior beings. They cannot wield fire, and are even afraid of it. Therefore, their only purpose is as tools for us to increase our happiness!Roast them over our sacred flames for our consumption! Use their parts to create neat trinkets for our enjoyment! And if killing them makes you happy, kill them all!
>>34032Ive been complaining for a while m8, glad to see I have a companion. I was actually going for Leather working and making Drums with the leather for the Music CultureLets not do the agriculture and send like 15 people to go found a fishing village on the coast, its easier than trying to farm.
>>34035So our actions so far are:>Ask to trade with the ore tribe to acquire wood chopping.>Developing a new housing system, that increases fishing yielding. We still need a cultural action, maybe something related to our strong sense of community?
>>34038Okay lets start the search for the sacred joy maker plant.>>34075I can agree that animals are inferior.
Yo! Druggie tribe! Lil suggestion for down the line. You carve a smile into a slave's face.
>>34032Op is not really giving feedback on our tech, i think the most technically advanced tribe is now the sand tribe and the other ones are too developed on culture while most of their culture is gay orgys and cannibalism.
>>34035Yes! But lets get their bestest tools and give them our stickiest clothings and breakablest nets as the exchange!But still, the thoughts about my time as a formless sounds disturbs me.. Maybe I'll try to bury it under work!
>>34076Its easier for now.When we have many more people to feed a joint farming venture should be good.
>>34095So shall we be a communist society?"From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs" and all that?
>>34069Hey, OP, are there other humans in the regions apart from the player tribes? I mean, for example, are there small bands of humans of the tree tribe culture roaming in the forest? Small nomad groups of sandnigs in the desert? Or is it just the player village and nothing else?>>34121Gay orgies will not make more babies, and we made the orgy thing specifically to make babies, so I doubt it.You are just jealous because the only bangable things in your mountains are the rocks and the goats.
>>34076sounds fair enough, though I think that we should still remove rocks from a more green and flat area and stack it somewhere.On the subject of reproduction, could OP clarify that the incidental reproduction is net gains? then we don't need to consider old age and shit like that. Just assume that for every death there is a replacements + X.
>>34075I agree with this, lets do it.
>>34122-metaThe reason I put on a trip is because I had some matters to attend for like several hours, and afraid that these all would die when Im gone. Putting this trip so if I managed to log in here again, you'll know its me, altough my ID is different
>>34146u make me proud. but they are right on technology, anything beside the mentioned fire?Guys Guys, are we the first thread to be reach bump limit?
>>34146There are no other humans in the world, apparently.>>34157Incidental births include replacements of deaths.>>34164Bump limit is 1000 IIRC
For the Brush trive, how about the belive that everything that makes you happy it's good, and so if keeps you happy it's holy. Like those fruits that make you see colors when eat them.
>>34175Nope, it's 750. Oh well.Can I have turn summaries for each tribe in a couple of minutes? Link your turn summary to this post.
>>34175i though it is 750
Producer of happines for the Brush Tribe.
Hey Ore tribe, can you guys craft wood yet?Because we have some nice fishing nets and blue jeans for you!
>>34143Let us knit a web where we can thrive as a whole!(Worker explotation should be forbidden, and slavery banned. Also I would like to establish now that a communist/socialist society [Or atleast our hypothetical one] does allow trading and merchants, as long as the goods they are trading aren't made by exploded workers.)
>>34209The Ore Tribe has only access to sticks and twigs from the minimal foliage where they live.
>>34132You live in the desert, us in the mountains, I dont really think Farming is viable for either... Im gonna try and steer use to fishing, so we dont all starve when rocks stop being edible.>>34121And were just hear, with a crazy number of people, building an actually strong culture (That isnt completely insane) with good tools to back us up.>>34157Lets put that on the back burner, we have much more productive things to do. Perhaps we can find mushroom crops or something later and grow stuff in out underground cavern.>>34194We be nearly out of time then. Also, Im just going with original plan of:Tribe: The Production of LeatherCulture: Use this leather to make Drums for music culture.>>34209The fucks a 'wood'
>>34224How come you were the first ones to make fire, and you don't know what wood is?
>>34219The tree tribe has woodcrafting though right?>>33659I guess we can trade with them, if they can stop hating outsiders for long enough.
>>34234probably we found coal
>>34234We have like... sticks and some bushes... but whats wood? Is it like a big stick or....
>>34239The tree tribe has woodcrafting, yes.>>34228Fine by me.
>>34194I believe the Brush tribe is going with this >>34075 and this>>34038
>>34254That is what I've agreed to.
>>34224the desert is actually somewhat viable for farming IF there is river they can farm wheat but i do not see a single river on the map,
Yoyoyoooo Tree tribe!How about you teach us the secrets to woodcrafting, and in return we give you fishnets? Or what about some nice silk clothes?Insects are animals too, we're basically allies!
>>34276The map is mostly symbolic. There's a river there probably.
>>34234they are depleting their already thin foliage for smelting learning>>34239we will resolve the issue soon
>>34143>>34095>>33933I dont know Priest. That sounded super spidery, but I still think that there are something more than what we can see.. Something that I had experienced firsthand
>>34297Can you look into a past life?Can you see what was before all this?
>>34297We can perfect our society as we advance, but life as community sounds like a good start
Haven't we all chosen what we are doing?>Cultural advancement focused around improving tools and creativity>either developing farms via removing rocks from flat areas or FISHING.
My masterpiece is done.
Still waiting for a summary from the Mire and Sand tribes.
>>34362>Tribe: The Production of Leather>Culture: Use this leather to make Drums for music cultureThats what I submitted
>>34362We can help you with fishing if you trade us something back.>>34375So culturally, we're going full communism mode.What's going to be our action guys?What if we have a bunch of babies this turn? Spiders lay tons of eggs too.
>>34375Action is breeding Trait is that we make clay slabs with pictograms on them
>>34382how about making farms so that we can have bigger animals to make better and thicker and larger leather?
>>34279We would have to meet first, but sure. We need a front to combat the evil stone and sandnigger menace.
>>34249>Rocks when broken become sand, and the sand stone is just sand re-made into a rock. >Therefore the sand tribe and the rock tribe may be different people they are made from the same stuff. >Therefore they will not fight each other, because we are the same thing.>However wood cannot become sand or stone >Mud cannot become sand or stone. >Grasses cannot become sand or stone>So The tree tribe, the Mire tribe, and the brush tribe are not made of the same stuff and thus lower tier.
>>34403>>34375The clay slabs are for transporting information
>>34375Ok, our action is also breeding.Culturally, we'll structure our society based on the glorious science of Marxist-Leninism. Basically this >>34214 and >>34143
>>34372Wait.... arent your people atheist? Isnt labeling yourself gods accepting that there are gods?>>34405Next turn we can sacrifice our culture gain to do both Fishing Village, and setting up pens for our goat things that we've been eating.>>34417We just have to get past the one minor barrier of how your all spiritless heathens, and then WE CAN BECOME THE MORE POWERFUL GROUP ON ISLAND
>>34441It means we believe in ourselves. And that's what counts.
>>34254Im thinking for our next turn we should make burning the dead our means for them to reach our joyous god.
>>34441Just focus on construction tools man, we'll trade you fishing tech.
I'm out for tonight, good luck tree people
>>34441fine by me.Also by increasing our food sources and quantity we will be able to increase our incidental breeding.
>>34436I thought we were gonna trade w/ the ore for wood chopping as well.
Incoming. Did them all at once, posting them all at once.
OOCThis is actually why /qst/ should exist
>>34321I can try Priest, but whatever it is, I strongly felt that is mostly relies on coordinating with one another, just like this. Off course in the end we are going to be reborn as spiders, yes. B-but Oh! Is this true?! I can see shadows of legs among mists! A--O-ooooO-oO-ooO-ohhTHE CYCLE! Our [ SPIRIT] is the essence of our beings. Our spirits have travelled and taken many form! Currently we are human, but by becoming a spider, then we can truly be free from this eternal suffering. Just like a web being sprung, in the end, it all going back to the spider's webchamber!Also we must be nice to each other unless we are cursed into rebirthed>>33544 into being inferior beings, such as humans.. Which we are now
>>34512Ore doesn't have woodchopping yet. Tree does, but It's kinda unclear whether they want to trade.
>>34536Then we should research it ourselves as our technological action
>>34489I love it.>>34520Thanks.
>>34535>Got to the top for doing nothingToday is a good day.
>>34557Want to try and cultivate cactus's next?Having giant cactus fields could be nice for food.Plus many cactus's create alcohol that we could give to other tribes.
>>34520yes. We never had any of this type of thing very often on just /TG.Only the established shit got maintained and had content, with the cool ideas often dying.With /qsg there is such a huge amount of stuff that people can trawl through it and find what they like.Also bump limit and length of time things stay up is quite nice, much slower complete death of threads.>>34513I presume that these developments are ongoing and do not need any more turns spent on them i.e. they passively develop?
>>34529I don't know man. Maybe you've been stung a couple too many times.>>34550How many turns would that take though? I assume we can't just jump straight into creating complex structures like raised houses, right Richard?Trading with the Tree tribes would be a lot simpler, I think.
>>34520Honestly I wasnt sure about /qst/, but this has been a bucket of fun. In other news, Im gonna disappear for a half an hour or the whole night. Dont know yet.>>34494 dont fuck up the tribe while Im gone. If I dont return, try and convert the Sand Bros and strengthen the alliance, also try and get some bloody trees... I want boats.I hope you archive this once we cap on the bump limit, and we get more threads going.
my vote is for slab writing system for recording mathematics.
