For generations your people lived an unchanged, savage life in the mountains, little different from the animals you hunted. Yet recently, that is something that has changed. With threat of advanced outsiders, 4 tribes of Orcs have banded together to form a confederation of sorts, and with the arrival of new inventions such as agriculture and more advanced stone tools, things seem to be changing faster than ever. What shall be the fate of the Orcs in the future? Shall they continue to live and advance? Or shall they be destroyed, annihilated, reduced to mere history? Only time will tell...Current Stats:Current Stats:72 (4 tribes)>Culture and Art: Primitive. Other than the occasional inspired set of scratchings on a rock or cave wall, your people have no art to speak of. A warrior caste is present, composed out of the strongest and greatest fighters in the confederation, but other than that and a tradition of sled riding, there is very little that could be considered "culture" in your people. Of clothes there are none, with tribespeople mainly wandering about naked, although it hasn't been for lack of trying. >The People: Your people organise themselves into tribes, each of which has an individual chieftain and each of which is considered equal in your confederation Although there is somewhat of a general tendency towards selfishness and cruelty amongst Orcs, your people have rejected this in favour of a strong fraternity culture, seeing their fellow confederates more as brothers than anything else. Ethnically, they tend to bear skin of an ashy grey tone of varying darkness, and hair is thin and lank, generally coming in dark shades of black or brown and left mostly unstyled. Curiously, distinctive icy blue eyes are also rather common amongst the Orcs in your confederation, although essentially absent in most outsider tribes.>Technology: Your people make use of a variety of advanced stone tools, including spears, pickaxes, hammers and handaxes. Fungiwood sleds are also used, both to drag around goods and also to take risky rides down the mountainside. In terms of homes, your people inhabit cave dwellings sometimes lined with grass bedding, with little in the way of true architecture. >Magic: None. Although there are tales of great sages able to perform wondrous deeds, and the occasional tribesperson who even attempts to pass themselves off as one, your people generally live without any magic in their lives, with some even doubting its existence, if they bother to think of it much at all.>Food: Abundant. Your people practise a primitive form of agriculture revolving around the fungi that grow in the nearby caves, and supplement their diet with some level of foraging and hunting. A basic system of rationing is also enforced to allow food stores to last for longer, and ensure everyone gets a share.>Previous Thread: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive/3251301/STATE 2 ACTIONS AND 1 IDEA/STAT YOU WISH TO PONDER

>>3265447+1 although I think we should stop forcing the clothing and armour stuff, sure it's necessary, but the Orcs have tried a whole fucking lot and lead nowhere, so I think that would be a bit "out of character", I think we should start working towards the idea of researching art as a means of maintaining our knowledge in, say, sled construction, military trainings, etc. We may not have writing yet but we sure can try our hand at drawing.

Rolled 47 (1d100)And now for the idea. Let's see if this time the Orcs are successful in their bid to clothe themselves.
>Joint military training and hunting with our confederated tribes>Rolled 18/20>Complete SuccessWith the unity and fraternity amongst the confederation that is currently being experienced, it only makes sense that the next step would be to hunt together, to train together. And sure enough, that is indeed what you do, with the help of the warrior caste of course. As a result of this, not only has the unity of your confederation somewhat increased you are now capable of fielding greater and more organised forces, ones which might even one day be called a form of army,+Tribal unity slightly increased++Warrior caste numbers increase++Basic tactics discovered+>Expand our tribe's living space>Rolled 3/20>Low FailureAlthough there can be no doubt as to the benefits of being able to support a larger population, there is one problem that currently exists: space, or more precisely, the lack of it. As it stands, although once they were quite suited to your needs, the caves which the tribes of your confederation call home are starting to get slightly cramped. So it is that a few Orcs decide to try using their stone pickaxes to mine out a little more living space. For a while it seems as though they'll be successful as the cave is gradually expanded into a new chamber... until the ceiling collapses, a flood of rocks which they only escape from just in time, and which erases every inch of progress they made. Dreams of expansion, it seems, will have to wait for another day.>Develop armour and shields using fungal wood, mushroom fibres, and fungal wood>Rolled 47/100>Minimal Success + Previous attemptsLong ago, a tribesperson saw the strange second-skin of the pinkskins, and tried to replicate it for himself. He failed. Then another tribesperson tried, this time with a shield. He also failed. Following that, a third tribesperson chose to try something similar, with animal skins instead. He failed, and got eaten alive by worms. But does this mean that your people are just going to give up? Of course not! Making use of the very finest tools and materials they have available to them, the Orcs finally create a functional piece of armour, albeit a primitive one, in the form of several planks of fungiwood tied together with mushroom fibre and grass. Is it crude? Absolutely! But it's a start, and that's that.+Primitive wooden armour+STATE 2 ACTIONS AND 1 IDEA/STAT YOU WISH TO PONDER

>Explore another cave>Rolled 2/20>Complete FailureOkay, so for now it seems that maybe attempting to dig out a new chamber isn't the best of ideas. But then again, these mountains are pockmarked with caves, and at least a few of them should be alright for Orcs to live in, right? Thus do some of your people decide to go out in search of a cave in which any excess population can migrate to. And at first, it seems as though their search is successful, with a decently large and well sheltered cave being found. However, upon spending the night there, they find that something rather... less savoury is already living there. From the depths emerges a beast, great, shaggy and with claws like knives. Striking suddenly, it is a short fight, and only 1 of the scouts manages to escape. Upon returning with reinforcements, no bodies were found, only long smears of blood upon the ground.>Mine>Rolled 10/20>Average SuccessA few of your tribespeople decide to try making good use of their pickaxes and hammers for a change, using them to attempt to search through the rubble formed by the unsuccessful attempt at creating a new chamber to see if there's anything of use. Although they found little of relevance, they did note quite a curious orangeish rock, one which appeared to grow in queer hair-like filaments. A most puzzling discovery.>Develop a religion to improve our magic>Rolled 82/100>High-Quarter SuccessIt happens a cold winter evening, as thunder rumbled in the distance and Orcs crowded together in the caves, staying close to the fires and each other for warmth. Suddenly, a flash. For some, there is almost nothing, for others, distinct voices and glimpses, and for a few... visions. Visions of a strange, cosmic landscape, abstract and eternal. There is a being... or is it beings? It is hard to tell, for it, or they, is all around them, watching, surveying. And then there are the voices, the thousand indistinct voices, each muttering, each commenting, a thousand eyes, a thousand comments, impossible to understand, impossible to perceive. And then, as suddenly as it began... it ends, just like that.But although the event itself may be over that it affected the people of the Confederacy is something none can doubt. Already, small shrines are being erected here, there and everywhere, congregations gathering around, not understanding who it is, what it is, but understanding that somewhere out there is a being, or beings, of incomprehensible size and power.+Disorganised Religion - Little can be said for certain or agreed on, whether it is one being or many, what it or they has in mind, or what it even is.

Rolled 71 (1d100)And the idea.
>Scout to see if the pinkskins have ventured any closer to our territory>Rolled 4/20>Low FailureThe relatively recent discovery of the fort build by the pinkskins was a foreboding thing, a reminder of why the Confederacy had been founded in the first place. Raids were one thin g, but building forts on former Orc territory? This was an invasion. So it was that several scouts decided to venture forth once again, in order to keep an eye out for any more incursions. Sadly, things went wrong from the very beginning, with the scouts almost immediately spotted when they came close to the fort. Chased away, one was taken down by some manner of small flying spear and had to be left behind, and although the remaining scouts managed to eventually shake off their pursuers, they are left disturbed and concerned regardless.>Study the strange, orange rock and its hair-like filaments to see what we could use it for>Rolled 14/20>Above-Average SuccessThe orange rock is a strange thing. Unlike most other rocks it is a most malleable thing, easily bent and deformed with a few whacks with a hammer, although this is a property that sadly makes it effectively useless when it comes to actual tools. It could be used to make jewellery of course, but given that your kind have little concept of such a thing, that seems unlikely. However, there is one thing of particular note discovered: at one point, an Orc using the light of a campfire to study the rock in detail accidentally dropped it in. Yet this rock did not simply remain unchanged by fire, as most did. Instead, it melted like ice, turning into a flowing liquid before at last solidifying back into rock after the fire went out! What does this mean? The Orcs don't know, but they enjoy tossing the orange rocks into fires now regardless, simply to see the way they change.>Study ranged weaponry>Rolled 71/20>Low-Quarter SuccessThe danger presented by the pinkskins is one growing ever more real all the time, especially with the loss of one of the scouts in your most recent expedition, hit by a spear from a distance which shouldn't even be possible. How did the pinkskins manage it? Your Orcs aren't sure, but they can certainly experiment and try to create their own similar device. It takes a long time of course, and several failures, but at last they manage to settle on a simple design, capable of taking a spear and throwing it to a far greater distance with minimal effort on the part of the Orc.+Spear throwers discovered+STATE 2 ACTIONS AND 1 IDEA/STAT YOU WISH TO PONDER

>Excavate further living space in the cave>Rolled 17/20>Above-Average SuccessIt is no secret that the cave of your unofficial "capital" is getting a little cramped with the great increases in population caused by the adoption of agriculture and the like. Recently a few Orcs decided to try expanding into a new chamber, only to have their attempts collapse around them. Now though, better equipped and more well planned, another bid to expand the space in the cave meets success, with the result being that far more Orcs are now able to be housed in the area.+"Capital" cave capacity increased from 20 to 40 Orcs+>Fortify cave entrace>Rolled 11/20>Average SuccessFortifications are something that are known to the people of the confederacy of course, but you have never seen any particular need for them. Whilst raids do occasionally happen, the natural defences are are generally enough to keep them back a little while whilst the warriors do their work. Recently though, there have been worries. Given the powers of the pinkskins, who is to say that they won't bypass them with ease? Better safe than sorry after all. So it is that the various tribes of the confederacy have begun to fortify the entrances to their caves, digging holes, putting down obstacles and designating areas where spears, stones and other weapons can be hidden out of sight for later use.>Stone stacking architecture>Rolled 51/100>Minimal SuccessAs they were building these fortifications, a few Orcs realised that as opposed to putting in all the effort of moving one massive stone into place, why not pile up many small ones? Is it crude? Yes. Is it it likely to be ineffective? Quite possible. But nonetheless, it is perhaps the first thing the Orcs have created that could genuinely be called "Architecture".+Crude stone walls discovered+ STATE 2 ACTIONS AND 1 IDEA/STAT YOU WISH TO PONDER

>Expand the mushroom farms>Rolled 15/20>Above-Average SuccessThe mushroom farms already form a considerable part of your diet, and have done for a long time now ever since the invention of agriculture as your main stable food source. As time goes on though, these farms, whether deliberately or not, gradually begin to expand as more and more mushrooms take hold over a greater area, and as such provide a greater surplus. And with this greater surplus of food, the population too grows, not by much, but certainly by some amount.+With the gradual expansion of the mushroom farms, 12 more people can now be supported off of their produce. Your population now numbers 84 Orcs.+> Build cold storage rooms deep in the cave for food and other supplies and also carve out water storage basins>Rolled 17/20>Above-Average SuccessAlthough you are unaware of the exact reason why, it has always been a known fact that food seems to keep better in cold conditions, just as it has always been known that deeper areas in the caves tend to be colder than those closer to the surface. Recently though, a few Orcs in one of the confederal tribes decided to try digging out their own chambers deep within the caves, and storing food in them. Soon realising how much better food stored this way kept, the technique spread quickly amongst the Confederacy, and now all 4 tribes have their own tunnelled out cold storage chambers for food and water.+Cold storage chambers discovered+>Try to make spear points from the orange rock>Rolled 9/100>Low Quarter FailureSitting in the cave one day, an Orc playing the casual pastime of tossing orange rocks into a campfire and watching them melt suddenly comes to a realisation: the orange rocks are shiny. The arms and armour of the newcomers is also shiny. Admittedly they're entirely different colours, but there's a resemblance regardless. Just imagine if he were to gain that power...Sadly, his dreams of domination soon come to an end when he drops his unfinished orange stone spear into the campfire, where it soon loses all form and melts away. He stares in disappointment at the remains for a few seconds, before deciding it wasn't worth it anyway, and heading out to take part in some sled riding.STATE 2 ACTIONS AND 1 IDEA/STAT YOU WISH TO PONDER

>Attempt to make picks with orangerock>Rolled 2/20>Complete FailureA little while back, an Orc came to the revelation of the similarity between the shininess of the orange rock and the shininess of the pinkskin's armaments. However, before his grand plans of creating the most powerful spear in existence came to fruition, he dropped it in a campfire by accident, and lost interest shortly thereafter. Yet now, another Orc comes to a similar conclusion and tries again, this time with a pickaxe. After several hours of long, hard work, they finally create a pickaxe of orange rock... only for the first test of it to deform the pickaxe without leaving a dent in the rock. It seems as though although tools made by the orange rock are certainly nice looking, they are no match for good old stone.>Pile rocks in front of murdercave>Rolled 10/20>Average SuccessEver since the loss of the scouts, the Cave of the Beast has been a place of fear and dread, where few dare to tread, and those who do speed by as quickly as possible. But this cannot be enough. For no matter what, a beast lurks there, and even now its presence can be seen from the great gouges and scratches visible on the walls of the cave, as though made by claws beyond magnitude. No, you have to do something about it. So it is that a collaborative effort is made by the nearby Confederate tribes, building up small stone walls in front of the cave. It may not be much, but should the beast choose to leave, it shall at least be impeded for a while.>Consider burgeoning spirituality>Rolled 13/100 >Low Quarter Failure + Unlucky ThirteenEver since the abstract vision some time back, a disorganised kind of spirituality has developed amongst the Orcs as they pray at various shrines and altars, unsure of who or what they are praying to, but showing devotion regardless. Recently though, some have been getting bolder, praying that they may understand what it is that they are worshipping, asking for some sign.They are answered.He appears in an abstract landscape, so bizarrely formed as to be almost incomprehensible. His robes are of a vivid yellow, flowing and waving in a way that seems almost gaseous. Great horns emerge from his head, so thin and textured in some parts as to seem almost like thread.

It seems that they had been out for several hours. At first a few try to brush it off as a mere dream, but it is immediately clear that that is not true, for on their foreheads lies the sign, the sign of the King in Yellow, and their minds have been filled with knowledge, knowledge great and terrible of the world around them. Demanding a set of mineral dyes, they shortly take on the task of creating a proper shrine to the King, and similar depictions are now popping up all over the Confederation.

Now though, a new idea comes to mind: what if you could prevent armies from ever reaching your homes in the first place?

Now though, your Yellow Sages take the journey to the neighbouring tribes to see if they can reconsider. The moment the Sages walk in, the atmosphere immediately changes. From the confidence of their stride to the strange looks in their eyes, it is clear to all that these are no ordinary Orcs. Even so, they remain unwilling and untrusting of your confederation at first, but that unwillingness is soon put aside by a brief flash of light, a mere millisecond yet one which contained seemingly an eternity of visions.
