o everyone that up voted the archive, thanks a bunch. I know my writing is the best, but seeing that people enjoy it really helps. Now, back to your regularly scheduled program. Welcome to Neolithic Pokemon Quest, Episode 2. Episode 1, New Friends in New Lands, can be found at http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/42308852/For all the new people, here's a quick summery. We are playing Cain, a 17 year old hunter gatherer. A massive fire separated him from his family and tribe, leaving him alone in the world. Armed only with a flint spear, a damaged pokedez, and his wits, Cain ventured north, stopping to rest high in the Dragonback mountains. It is here that Cain met a Swinib, and befriended the small Pokemon. Together, they managed to defeat a newly hatched Beedrill. We ended with Cain beginning another page for the pokedex, to replace the destroyed ones. At the moment, there is a total of 47 pages, with a range of information. With time, the pokedex will fill out and help you in your journey.
The fire crackles merrily, bits of sap bursting through the bark from the heat. Your future meal, a freshly dressed Beedrill, sits to the side. The cocoon it emerged from sits next to it, still hard and close to intact. You place the meat of the Pokemon into the chrysalis, then seal it close with a strip of braided wing. You spread the embers of the fire out around the hole, then place the chrysalis inside the primitive oven. The embers are piled back on top of the meal, to provide an even temperature. You spend an hour readying the campsite, laying pine boughs down into a bed, with rocks piled on one side to reflect the heat of the fire back to you. A small amount of rocks are placed in the fire, to be removed throughout the night, and placed in the bedding. Swinub tries to help you, pushing small rocks toward the fire with his snout. He's not willing to get to close to the flames, but his help is appreciated. The small boar pulls apart a number of branches, striping the needles into a pile atop your bed. Periodically, Swinub will lay down in the mount, crushing it into a nest. Once your campsite is ready for the night, you pull the Beedrill from the flames. A sharp tap on the shell pops it open, revealing the steaming contents. The insect flesh floats in a pool of berry juices, Bidoof fat, and various plants you found around the woods. Using freshly whittled chopsticks, you dig into the meal. The Beedrill has an oddly nutty flavor, a cross between peanuts and walnuts. Without the fat from the Bidoof, it would be dry, but with it, the meat drips. The sweet berry juices soak into the Pokemon, blending together into a heady mix of sweet and salty. Using the chrysalis as a cup, you drink down the broth. Swinub gets a few choice bits of meat, along with the carapace. He seems to love it, gnawing at the hard insect shell. >do you want to give Swinub a nickname?
>>42332769time to craft some Beedrill Spear.>do you want to give Swinub a nickname?if I could think of a good name, but I can't
>>42332805Hmm maybe Riktor?
>>42332805maybe we should check if it has a wingwang first
>>42333003We should check it's sex
>>42333053>>42333003The Swinub is male
>>42333065Maybe we should wait till we have more players? Let's continue the story a bit
Im bad with names to be fair
>>42333100Will do, we'll save it for the end of the threadYou lay in your bed of branches, pushing a few to the side so they don't poke you in the back. Swinub steps into his nest, circles it, then curls into a ball. The furry Pokemon lies pressed against your side, warmth radiating outwards. Somehow, having another being with you makes the world seem just a bit brighter. There's hope now. You're back at the Endless forest, the lush green vegetation shining in the starlight. You remember this spot well, your tribe stopped here about once a month. The trees were held back by some act of nature, leaving room for ferns to form a perfect carpet. Often, tribes meet here to trade, intermingle and (something you learned just a few years ago) hook up.You blink, and instantly, the world is aflame. Chattering echoes around the clearing, demonic laughter completely unknown to you. A hunched figure, his skull wreathed in flame, stands out as a well of night in the flickering red backdrop. >Run Away>Charge the Figure>Try to Hide>Write In
>>42332805Let's call him Rufus. Though to be fair, I always want to name small cute animals Rufus. Not sure why, it just feels right.
>>42333241>Try to Hide>>42333256no that's not a great name for a Boar that will grow to the size of a Mammoth.
>>42333241>>Try to Hide
>>42333241>Try to HidePretty sure this is a dream, what with the lack of transitions, but best to be careful anyway. Even if it is a dream, this thing might be magic enough to still hurt us.
>>42333241Hold your ground. Don't run, don't hide, just stand and watch
Writing, that was my last prewritten post, so it'll take me a bit longer
>>42332769>I know my writing is the bestGetting a little conceited, are we?>>42333482We should name our spear at some point.
>>42333551Why it's a spear?
>>42333551*isntYet more proof I need to proofread
>>42333241RAP BATTLE HIM
Fear shoots up your spine, freezing you in place. The air around you boils, each breath like sucking air through a reed. Your head swims, the world a blurring collage of reds, orange, and black. The monster in the flames leaps between the trees, never entering the clearing. Golden flame streaks behind it, and each time the monster jumps, the tree collapses. Burning logs topple into the clearing, massive clouds of ash rising while the earth. The ungodly laughter never ceases, growing in strength with each fallen tree. You attempt to escape the flames, the laughter, the being of darkness. You know this land, it feels of home. Of home aflame now, stinking of the ethereal intruder. Diving through the flames, you attempt to find a place hidden away from the fire. The ferns, so soft and concealing in your memory, wither before you, their energy stolen. Brown husks are left, which smolder and crack under the lightest pressure. You pull the smoking plants over your body, hissing slightly as burns form along your skin. The laughter draws closer, the being's footsteps almost too light to hear. The sound cuts off suddenly, leaving only the crackling of the burning forest and your own shallow breaths. You shut your eyes, trying to remain perfectly silent. The monster, almost undetectable, steps slowly over your hiding spot. It's nostrils draw in two massive quantities of air, audible even through the background noise. >Attack>Hold Still>Try to Run>Write In

>>42334133Jesus christ how horrifying
>>42334133fitting.So if the fossils aren't fossils yet, what types are they all? Like, I always assumed they were part rock to represent the whole 'fossil' thing.I think it'd be cool to have Aerodactyl be Dragon/Flying.

Lost my post, rewriting it right now. Sorry for the delay
The monster circles your hiding spot, drinking in the smells of the burning forest. It draws in more and more air, yet never seems to exhale. The air just disappears, consumed by the monsterThe monster roars in anger, releasing a jet of flame into the sky. It falls to all fours, landing heavily on its fists. The being draws in air, the massive column of flame taxing it. It's weak now. Tired. You've hunted monsters before, beings able to kill with a fraction of their power. The key is to attack when they're tired. You burst from your hiding place, charging at the monster. It turns to face you, providing the first solid view of it. The body is humanoid, but hunched and bearing a long, thin tail. Flames pour from its shoulders and atop its head, the air around it shimmering with heat. A muzzled skull floats in the fire, sharp canines bared. Eyes made of darkness stare out at you, spotted with bits of white fire. You punch at the monster that has terrorized you for days, always hidden with the flaming trees. A sudden wave of cold washes over your body, a welcome relief from the burning heat. In the instant before you connect with the monster, you glance over your body. Plates of blue ice cover your body, shifting perfectly in tune with the muscles they protect. Your hand and forearm is a solid icicle, coming to a jagged point. Flakes of stone are suspended in the ice, lending you their protection. A small ball of ice and stone is positioned perfectly over your heart. The icicle stabs into the monster's chest, steam rising as the ice and flame do battle. You draw back your hand, now dripping water, covered in a thin glove of ice. >punch the monster again>run away>write in
>>42335008>>punch the monster again
>>42335008>punch the monster again
>>42335008>punch the monster againDon't let up. We've got some magical ice spirit helping us (the Swinub serving as our spirit guide, maybe?), don't let it go to waste.
>>42335008>punch the monster againCan we also have swinub help?
>>42335172these pictures man
>>42335172this is my fetish
>>42335008What is this pokemon?
>>42335512you'll figure it out as we go
>>42335512I'm thinking Magmar, maybe.
>>42335629If it were magmar, the qm would be describing its face as cleavage, not a skull.
>>42335629>>42335666It's a Infernape, long tail crown of flames etc
>>42335714Maybe. Feels like it fits pretty well, but it doesn't explain the "skull-headed" bit. Unless it's a zombie Infernape.
You draw your hand back, the icicle beginning to reform around your hand. You stab the other arm into the monster's side, eliciting a roar. A hand swats you to the side, and you skip across the clearing. Liquid flame grows around the monster's frame, armoring it in a red fasimile of yours. The monster rears up to its full height, towering above you. Magma drips from its body with every movement, smoking as it burns the dirt it lands on. The skull disappears in the molten rock, replaced by a wide face. A skin of grey rock forms, then cracks across its body, constantly renewing itself. The monster's laughter returns, booming from a stone chest. Your armor struggles in the heat, barely maintaining its form. A spear materializes in your hands, a stone haft with a foot long blade of ice and stone chips. Holding the weapons with both hands, you charge at the waiting monster. The monster forms a weapons, the likes of which you've never seen. It's shaped much like a spear, yet he holds it only at one end. It's much shorter as well, only four feet. Regardless of its strange choice of weapons, you stab out at the monster. The tip of your spear is knocked offline, hitting only air. A line of heat cuts into your stomach, the monster's weapon melting through your frozen armor. The spear drops from your hands, melting as it falls. The ice around you dissolves, the heat too intense. Dream over!You bolt awake with a scream, fumbling for the wound. Nothing mars your skin, the line of fire already fading. Swinub hops onto your lap, pushing his snout up against your "wound". Ignoring the dying heat, you scratch behind his ear. No reason to worry him with your bad dream. >>42335714Correct.
>>42335819>>42335714huh, I though Magmortar fit the description better, what with the burning shoulders
Shaking off the dream, you note that the sun has already risen. You quickly stoke the dying embers of last nights fire, with only a moment of fumbling. You feed Swinub one of your last berries, and eat the last of your pemmican. It's a bit dry, and with little snow near by, you don't have much to drink. You'll have to find a stream or pond soon, or risk dehydration. You're also out of food, which is very worrying in this climate. >go hunting>search for water>head up the mountain>head down the mountain>>42335941It's based on Infernape, but with some changes due to Cain's subconscious.
>>42336054>search for water
>>42336054>>search for watercould we ask swinub to odor sleuth some out for us?
>>42336054>It's based on Infernape, but with some changes due to Cain's subconscious.Fair enough.>search for watergot to secure the water, once we've got that then we can either go hunting with Swinub using odor sleuth for tracking.
>>42336054>search for waterWe got a hook, so we could try fishing if we find a river/stream. Although I doubt Magicarp is good eating.
>>42336054>>search for water
>>42336158Carp isn't that bad, tastes like cod. the problem is a lack of bait.
>>42336054>search for water>>42336246Given how dumb Magikarp is I wouldn't be surprised if it goes for an unbaited hook.
>>42336290spear fishing, Magicarp are fairly big targets, and are stupid.
>>42336315>magikarp are all meat and no visible organsno wonder they're the world's punching bag
loading...loading...loading...Also, Sage, do you have a twitter account?
>>42336648Will post it at the end, still need to make it. Anyway, almost done writing
So as far as magikarp go, how hard is it for one to become a gyarados?
>>42336721Very, and I doubt controlling one would be possible in a setting without pokeballs.
Water is the most valuable resource you can get at the moment, so you decide to go off in search of it. Besides, you can throw a line into the water and possibly get some food. Packing your bag and stomping out your fire, you set off. Swinub walks at your side, his short legs working overtime to keep up. Ultimately, you decide that it would just be easier for him to ride in your pack. The boar Pokemon squels with joy as you run, his forelegs braced against your shoulder. You follow a path up the mountain, leaping over rocks with the help of your spear. At the base of a small tumble of rocks, you strike gold. Liquid, clear, nonpoisonous, gold. A small waterfall has cut its way through the stone, and tumbles into a pond below. A ring of pine trees serve as a seat, the sappy branches perfectly shaped for sitting. Feeling the side of the tree, you notice that a number of branches have been cut away. The remaining branches are set so that a person can easily climb up or down. Pulling a piece of cord made of Beedrill tendon and wing from your pocket, you set up your spear for fishing. Swinub managed to find a Caterpie along the way, and you take a piece to act as bait. You flick the hook into the water, and sit back against a tree. Fishing a piece of hide from your pack, you start sketching Swinub. You've been meaning to add a page for him, and document anything you learn about his species. >roll 1d100 for fishing
>>42336773I was just curious, hoping we don't run into one

10$ says that this is some sort of sacred pool to the booze makers and we're gonna get into some deep shit.
You manage to get most of Swinub's page finished, before something tugs on the line. You place the page back in the clamshell case, then grab onto the spear. With a quick yank, you set the hook. You begin spinning the spear, wrapping the line around the haft. With a final pull, you rip the Pokemon from the water>A WILD SLOWPOKE APPEARED!>what do?how the hell did the line hold?shut up, Pokèscience
>>42336892We did it
>>42337116kill that useless fucker, then try again.
>>42337116Well i definitely dont wanna catch itI guess kill it for food/resources
>>42337116Cut off its tail and throw the rest back. That's where the good eating is, and it won't even notice the tail is gone until it's back in the water. I'm pretty sure they can regrow them, too. Slowpokes are meant to be axolotls, right?
>>42337116>Squee over how cute it is>PET THE SLOWPOKE
>>42337116kill it, we need the food.
>>42337116Take the tail then cast it back.
>>42337116Delicious, stab it while swinub uses tackle.
>>42337168This. We can make some sweet dosh selling those things.
>>42337152Yeah ill go with this rather than >>42337149
>>42337116>Pokèsciencebut we don't have pokescientists yet!Cut tail off for use as bait, get on eating and drying the slowpoke.Is the shell thing that bites the tail good eating?
>>42337152Just checked the pokedex and it does in fact grow back its tail if it loses it. And not only does it taste good, the slime on it serves as a good bait for fish. Damn, we should farm these things.
>>42337204It's a giant oyster, with the occasional pearl
>>42337152>>42337168Nice try, Team Rocket!
>>42337214I don't think we know that, though. At best, we'll see the tail stump start to grow back as we're eating the already dead slowpoke.
>>42337272Yeah I don't remember if slowpoke was in our dex.
So, I'm seeing people want to either kill it, or to cut off its tail. Which one would you guys prefer?Just so you know, slowpoke tails are like a combination of foie gras and Kobe beef. The normal meat is closer to high quality beef.
>>42337338We don't need to eat too much now, the tail will grow back, the animal itself could be farmed later, we could use the tail as bait.Just take the tail, the rest, punt back into the water.
>>42337338If it's in our dex, Tail it, if it isn't eat the fucking thing .
>>42337338Both. keep the tail for bait/trade, but we still need food and rations.
>>42337338Depends on how much food the tail actually is, if it's a more than a day's worth that's fine, if not kill the whole thing.
>>42337338Cut off tail and throw back
>>42337375Not in the dex, but you have hunted them before.
>>42337379This sounds good. People might pay good money for slowpoke tail, but we still need to eat something for ourselves.
>>42337412that is good kek. Money isn't a thing yet. Barter that shit.
>>42337338take the whole slowpoke

Can we not say things like "Swinub use [attack move]!" It sounds super mechanical and unrealistic in this prehistoric era with magical animals.Maybe a bit more of "charge it from the side," "tackle it while it's not paying attention." Just a bit more dynamic stuff.
>>42337888I agree. Using modern names for pre-established moves in a Neolithic setting just ruins the point.
>>42337710Slowpoke just got rekt
>>42337888>>42337993I see no problem using the modern names, afterall we need to know what the hell the attacks are for at least comparison purposes
>unnatural 20Slowpoke...What was it that Cameron showed you? They don't respond if you cut off their tails! That's it. Justin's name day, you went hunting and killed a Slowpoke. Justin was able to trade the tail for a ring of some strange stone worked into a ring. You rip the spear to the right, the hook pulling out of the Pokemon's lip. The Slowpoke starts chewing slowly, yet to realize that it was hurt. You step around the side of Pokemon, dragging your hand along the thick pink skin. The Pokemon looks over at you with one of its large, glazed over eye. You chop down with the pokemon's tail, slicing through the soft muscle and between the bone. The stump doesn't bleed, and you scratch the pokemon's neck before guiding it into the water. The Pokemon wades into the water, a small spurt of blood shooting from stump after a minute. >+1 Slowpoke Tail!"Hey kid, what are you doing? Don't you know Slowpoke are some of the most useful Pokemon? If you're not going to take it, I will." Someone dressed in green and brown shouts from the trees. A short spear shoots through the air, stabbing into the back of the slowpoke. It's head rises from the water, ears spinning to listen to you. >insert words
>>42338127Yes, but yelling "use powdersnow!" When we know fuck all about the pokemon's move set is just retarded.
>>42338127I'm not saying we don't need to know the attacks, but when the battle is written it seems a little off to declare them so mechanically.
>>42338163I don't know what to say to this guy other than, the hive mind in my head decided not to kill it.
>>42338163The fuck is that? The fuck are you? The fuck where are you?
>>42338240>the hive mind in my head decided not to kill it.I'm seconding this.
>>42338163hey I wanted to butcher the whole slowpoke.
>>42338163"If you let it grow its tail will regrow later. You'll be able to harvest them continually. Also who in the (setting appropriate curse word) are you?"
>>42338286This works for me. >>42338251Sleepy if you're gonna post and have a name try to contribute
>>42338163just need some food and water, besides I prefer to travel light.how much do we know about slowpokes? Cause this guy sounds like he knows some things so it could be a good chance to update the pokedez or whatever the fuck we're calling it now.
>>42338163well I personally wanted to kill it, so...>DUDE, not cool! You could have at least asked me why before shooting, it's not like the slowpoke will get away.
>>42338163Probably something regarding the fact he's the first living person we've seen since our village burned to the ground.
>>42338163"Well, it's just me and my little friend here, we don't need much. And if I let it go the next person to catch it could have a tail to enjoy, too. They grow back, given enough time."
>>42338163>>42338326I vote "Book of Beasts" as the name for our prehistoric pokedex.
>>42338286This. It's better than a hive mind.
>>42338397No... We know they're called Pokemon, pokedex is fine
>>42338286I'll vote this. Maybe try to work in asking for information about them they know for the dex
>>42338326Passing knowledge. You know they are docile, and that their tails are worth a lot in barter. This guy "farms" them, much like how native Americans would kill bison enough that they were very knowledgable about them and their habits. Anyway, writing. >>42338397The pokedex is known by many names, book of beasts is as good as any other
>>42338445Do we know the word "index", though?
>>42338468Just call it BOB
>>42338492Why would we?"Just look at the index in your fucking painted hides and skins."
>>42338526I'd stand behind The BoB
>>42338286Let's do this one. I finally get to learn more curse words!
>>42335008this just went from ancient pokemon to acid trip. I literally have no clue what pokemon this even is
>>42338645That's what happens when you eat weird plants you find in the woods Billy.
>>42338645Try reading the [historically accurate curse]ing thread before you post.
>>42338704That has to be one of the thread jokes from now on.
>>42337235ME THINK YOU MEANTEAM UNGABUNGA
>>42338163>Justin was able to trade the tail for a ring of some strange stone worked into a ring.Are megas a thing here?
>>42339017Considering that they were just discovered in the present canon of the video-game, no, probably not.
>>42339017God I hope not
>>42339105and yet they are in ORAS and the stones themselves are [historically accurate curse]ing ancient.
>>42339105Wasn't it stated that they were used in ancient times or something?
You lean your spear against the tree, then look over to the man. He's crouched on top of one of the branches, holding an atlatl and three more darts. A cream colored tunic is almost hidden by his cloak, which is held in place by a bone pin. "who in the name of Celebi are you?" You shout, drawing the slowly moving attention of the slowpoke. You now have ten minutes to run. "Besides, won't it heal?""ITS THE PRINCIPAL OF THINGS! The pain lasts for months, even after they heal." Shit, well now you kinda feel bad. "Besides, it the chance of catching one is astronomically low. And you were just going to let it go? Kids these days, no respect. Why, I had to walk up hill both ways to get water for my family. Now we have fancy 'buckets'." As he talks, the man launches three more darts into the slowpoke. Out of darts, he pulls a flint knife. >write in dialogue/actions>>42339017Yeah, but they are insanely rare. Not only do you need a fully evolved Pokemon, it has to have a mega, AND you need to be rich enough to get a mega stone. The only reason he could get one was because the trader thought it was just some weird rock. Also, Pokemon can't evolve. Electribuzz, for example.
>>42339138I like that other people are doing this.
>>42339151Aah, the curses are just the names of legendaries/pseudo-gods.
>>42339151Well sorry, I just ad my village burn down so i'm not thinking clearly.
>>42339151"Oh. Well, now I feel guilty, then. I was taught they didn't feel pain from losing their tails. I guess that was wrong. May I give it a clean death, then? You can keep the carcass, but if I put it in that position it's only right I end it."
>>42339151"Well since it's so hard to find one then share it with me since I caught it for you. What's your name anyway?" >>42339172Because it's [historically accurate curse]ing funny
>>42339151>I'll take some fancy "buckets" if it meant my village wouldn't have burnt to the ground.>Go for the slowpoke while he's confused
>>42339222This is not how a bandit operates Bunga-Brother. >>42339151Let him do his work, and try to get information out of him.
>>42339151I was told that they don't feel it when you remove their tail. Plus I'm not really from around here so I wasn't sure how rare these guys are.
>>42339201Nah, you just don't need to cuss especially hard. If you really wanted to piss someone off, you'd say "I hope your gf/wife gets fucked by a Zoroark"
>>42339450So essentially normal expletives + inserting a pokemon
>>42338908>>42339015PREPARE FOR UNGAAND MAKE IT BUNGATO UNITE ALL PEOPLE IN OUR TRIBETO DEFEND THE FOREST FROM THESE DANK RHYMESTO DENOUNCE THE EVILS OF TOOLS AND TECHTO USE LEGENDARY NAMES INSTEAD OF FUCK OR HECKCAINABBELTEAM UNGABUNGA BLASTING OFF AT THE SPEED OF LIGHTBENDOVA NOW OR PREPARE TO FIGHTSwinub, that's right!
>>42339450Zoroark would be an especially hated and feared Pokemon for a tribal society, wouldn't it? Shapeshifting infiltrators of human settlements always get a bad reputation in mythology, and here they actually exist.
>>42339571so, would ancient furries get the shit beaten out of them for wanted to invite in Zoroark and such? actually, that gives me an question>>42339450OP, what do humanoid pokemon look like here? Things like Machop and Gardevoir?
>>42339571Especially because they eat babies and scare away game. Man, [historically accurate curse] zoroark.
>>42339656I take that back, they steal babies.
>>42339656well, we just found out that one of the best curses is to say wish that someone's wish would get fucked by a Zoroark, so...I wish Zoroark's wife would get fucked by a Zoroark?
>>42339656They don't eat babies, they use their magic to turn them into Zorua. (a Zoroark cloak would be bitching)
>>42339689Dear god that's disturbing. Guess gallade ain't any better? And lucario is somehow worse?
>>42339689oh dear jesus. So, we're going for the "Fuck your magical realm, everything looks like an abomination against Arceus" route? Probably for the best TBH
>>42339689[historically accurate curse], how horrifying.
>>42339689We should fuck it
>>42339689MYYYYYY EYEEEES, DEAR ARCEUS THAT'S HORRIFYING.
>>42339737Shit, now that you brought it up OP is probably going to make Lucario's handspikes actual spikes of metal it drives through its hands on purpose or something
>>42339689>Grabs amber core and legs itmmmm, stuff...
>>42339689I mean the little one still looks cute.
>>42339807TFW the leaves always reform around the amber core and you wake up with it staring at you
>>42339693That's good. They disguise themselves, sneak into the camp and turn babies into zorua. I like it. when in reality many trade their newborn zorua for the human child. how many zorua do you think are out there that were raised by humans?
>>42339856That's actually an interesting way to revive a fallen Pokemon. Think about what if we befriended a ralts?
>>42339882that's spooky as shit
>>42339882How many humans out there are raised by zoroark?
>>42339942Maybe they then actually turn they babies into zoruaCOMING FULL CIRCLE
>>42340014And the zorua mentally turn into full humans and don't even realize they're a zorua/zoroark until they hit maturity.
>>42340014>>42340056LOOK AT WHAT YOU'VE DONE HICKORY
oh, wait. What if we are a zorua/zoroark RIGHT NOW.
>>42340056Thank you fellow hivemind.
>>42340090What if Cain is a zorua/zoroark and the infernape is a rival of his mother, and that's why he burned down the forest his village was in.
>>42340081That sounds like zoruark words, traitor
>>42340135 [historically accurate expletive], we are crafting the deepest lore for this quest.
>>42340135 and then he runs into a known psychic type Pokemon that can't mind-fuck him. He then had to come to terms and understand why something is so very very different about him.
OP comeback, these guys are scaring me with their spooky lore
>>42340261 and that is the breaking point where we take to the forest, surviving as a bandit, preying on the valuables of travelers
What the fuck guys. I made an offhand comment about a shapeshifter fucking someone. That's it. Anyway, almost done writingMachamps all look like John Cena
>>42340297And then we start the cycle over again after accidentally stealing an infant...
>>42340301I can only get so hard.
>>42340301HIS NAME IS MA-CHAAAAAAAAAMP
>>42340301 just think about the secret zoroark stuff. think about it.
>>42340320 screw this, let's make our own quest. With zoroark, and hookers.
>>42340429Not the second part. I don't wanna be banned for participating in a furry thread.
>>42340491Good point, strike that. Lets just enjoy this one. It is pretty good.
"Shit, sorry. Uh, do your thing man." You shout over, then watch as he wades into the water. The old hunter pulls a piece of compressed berries from his belt, and holds it out for the slowpoke to see. With plodding slowness, they back out of the water and onto the shoreline. "Why are you even up here, young man? It's not often we get visitors at the Dragonback mountains" the man pulls a thick fire hardened wooden stake from his belt, along with a mallet. "I got separated from my tribe in the Endless Forest. There was a giant fire, and I couldn't find them. I figured that they might have gone north to escape the flames." The man looks at you blankly. "I guess I was wrong.""Well son, we haven't had anyone come up here, 'side's yourself. You're welcome to stay with us for as long as ya need. I'm sure you'll be a hit at the tavern, growing up in the Endless Forest an' all. Be it true that there be Pokemon with many heads?"You help the man(who you learn is named Cato) butcher the slowpoke, a skill that translates from Raticates to giant pink Pokemon. Laden down with almost a hundred pounds of meat, you follow Cato up a steep wooded path. Marvelously, they have shaped the mountain to provide them with all the food they need. Stones are piled on terraces to form pens, which hold numbers of Mareep almost fantastical. Berry and Apricorn bushes are worked into fences, so that any passerby could eat as needed. They have long, thin stretches of single plants, growing in perfect lines. 1/2
>>42340301>That's it. Awwww ;(. I hope you intend to do something with the idea like 5 quests down the road or something.
>>42340749Cato leads the way through the village, waving to a few of the village's inhabitants. They all share the same fair complexion, and hair the color of flames. Cato opens a hatch to a large house, easily three times the size of family tents. A pair of what you assume are grandchildren greet him, swarming around you after hugging their grandfather. Cato wasn't kidding when he said they didn't get many visitors. The children, 7 and 9, get shooed out of the way by Cato. Dropping the meat next to a stone and clay oven, Cato sits across from you at a table. "Now Cain, you mentioned that you got separated. What're you planning to do?">goals?>>42340511:^)
>>42340773Welp, figure out what my new partner can do, Replace the lost pages on my skins, and find my people.
>>42340773I wanna be the very best, like no one ever was.To catch them is my real test, to train them is my cause.
>>42340773Well, I guess I'll have to try and find them. Maybe head back down the mountain. (what took so long OP? Technical difficulties?)
>>42340773"Well right now I plan on surviving. When I get enough supplies and experience I'll head south back to the forest and start searching for my tribe again in the hopes they didn't perish in the fire. After that, I honestly don't know."
Night folks. I'll read the thread in the morning.
>>42340773"Good question. I was planning on just surviving until I found some other people. Didn't think much farther beyond that. Now that I have I guess I'll keep wandering, see if my tribe wound up somewhere else. Maybe Green River?"
>>42340773>>42340832SecondI would like to think that Cain has a bit of apprehension concerning going back to the site of the fire. If not just because of the imprint the nightmare has left on him.
>>42340829Nah, just a combination of factors. I was researching stuff, the writing about the village and writing dialogue, which takes me longer than just describing stuff. >>42340763I'm totally using it, but damn, you guys added quite a bit of fluff to the setting because of an insult
>>42340773survive, gather more knowledge, and find my tribe.
Oh we need to ask him what he know's about swinub for the dex.
>>42340912I remember the first civ thread a ran years ago.The players created their own mythos and tribal structure for their Lizardfolk. I've never had another thread spontaneously do that. it was an amazing experience, and you should count yourself lucky that you have players interested enough to do that. Congrats OP.
>>42341024It's just the idea for this quest is kinda brilliant, wish I had thought of it first....
>>42340943>>42340912This is a good idea too, we should ask him about Pokemon in the area, and add them to the BoB for later study.
I'm reading >find tribe>repair the pokedex>learn about SwinubWhile I'm writing, you guys want to vote for a name for Swinub? Probably best to do it before too many people go to bed. >>42341024Trust me, I love when players get into it. Probably the second time in my entire questing career it's happened.
>>42332769OP, do you prefer us to post with names, or do you not care?
>>42341089>While I'm writing, you guys want to vote for a name for Swinub?Dire
>>42341170I actually like that one
>>42341089Saw the name Riktor thrown out earlier. I liked that.
>>42341057I was going to make the OP last thread a vote on the time period, but I fell in love with the Neolithic. I feel like it would have come between Neolithic and 1920's prohibition. >>42341138Post them? It's by popular vote, so you guys will be the ones coming up with it.
>>42341089Rufus is okay i figure, like the SF4 character
>>42341089don't tell me you're going to bed soon, the night is young.
>>42341198I meant poster names for ourselves.
>>42341170>Direthis one's ok>>42341203not a dog anon, maybe if we get a Herdier or Furfrou
>>42341132I like this one.
>>42341183Riktor was mine, didn't think anyone else would like it
>>42341245It's 7:30 man, I can go as long as you want. I might go over my prepared stuff, so the posting rate would go down slightly. A lot of my stuff is improv'ed though. Cato's village for example. I knew I wanted a village up here, but that's all.
>>42341284He said vote later so I didn't speak up. Seems kind Neanderthal-ish. If it doesn't stick we couple probably use it on something else.
>>42341295You west cost bastard, I love you.
so right now we've got 4 for Dire, 2 for Riktor, and a bunch of hammy one offs.
>>42340773>They all share the same fair complexion, and hair the color of flames.Did we just find the fucking Irishmen?
>>423414152 for boris too
>>42341435I missed that, the name isn't bad, but I like dire more.
>>42341435I'm voting for Boris.Dire is an adjective, not a name.
>>42341430They also make liquor from apricorns. Voting Dire
>>42341460>>42341502Dire isn't even a name.
>>42341477>Dire is an adjective, not a name.what's wrong with that? he's going to end up the size of an elephant>>42341524you say that like it's relevant.
>>42341502if they're Irishmen I make my vote something IrishPatty O'Swine
>>42341295Let's have a long thread, then! It's a good way to start off a quest series.
>>42341751ThisTomorrow's labor day anyway
>>42341835I don't have class tomorrow, but I still need to do some studying. I can go for another 4 hours if there's enough peopleWell, you hadn't thought of that. For the past weeks, the only thing on your mind was survival. The dreams were getting worse each night, leaving you more ragged than the day before. Last night was the first where you weren't running for your life. "I guess, I want to find my tribe. I need to know if they're okay," Cato nods silently, pulling at his beard. It wasn't until now that you noticed the many colors in it. Stone grey forms the brunt of it, but veins of red, orange, and yellow run through it. It reminds you somewhat of the last dying embers of a fire, stubbornly fighting against the winds of time. "My father gave me a book of Pokemon before Darkrai took him" Cato joins you in making the mark of Cresselia, to ward off His eye. "It was damaged when I escaped the flames. I'd like to try and repair it.""You have it on you, I assume?" Cato asks. You open the book's case, drawing it out with care. Cato handles it with almost religious reverence, slowly opening it to one of the pages. It's the Caterpie page, along with the new page you added for Beedrill. "Amazing work. And you can understand these?" You nod, and a smile crosses his face, "Good. Perhaps you would like to meet Rosalia? She has one much like this, though not of such great quality and quantity. No doubt she would be happy to see...your book"By the many layers of Celebi, what what was that pause?>yes, I'd like that>No, I would not wish to impose>write in
>>42341891>yes, I'd like that
>>42341891Forgot picI really like these, they have the aesthetic I'm going for. It looks kinda like guides for plants you can find in your area.
>>42341891>>yes, I'd like that>studying NEEERRRD
>>42341891>Write inWhat's with the pause? Is there something else she wants to see *wink wink nudge nudge*
>>42341942Oh, that's nice. I'd expect the art to be a bit rougher, though, just because Cain comes from an era before artistic movements popularized things like shading or perspective.
>>42341891Yes, I'd like that
>>42342014I imagine them as sketches in black and white, and shading because they would look weird without it. Plus, it gives me a reason to find pictures of realistic Pokemon like the unholy abomination Gardevoir
>>42342113You dragged that memory back up, GODDAMNIT MAN
>>42341891>>yes, I'd like thattrading knowledge is to the advantage of everyone.
>>42341942So something like these? http://casteelart.deviantart.com/gallery/29815058/Pokemon-Field-Guide
>>42342181First, a palette cleanser. Then more nightmareshttp://www.dose.com/theworld/3073/29-Drawings-Of-Realistic-Pokemon-Will-Haunt-Your-Dreams-7-Is-Kind-Of-Amazing-Though-ab630-1
>>42342316God fucking dammit I hate this stupid trend. "Durr to make it look realistic let's just make it look disgusting as fuck". That Mr.Mime doesn't even remotely look like one from the game other than colors and limb numbers. It's lazy shit meant for a shock value effect only.
>>42342368I agree. There are alot of good pics of realistic Pokémon. These ones later however are not realistic the are just drawn like shit to be considered more "artistic" or for shock value
>>42342368Look up Arvalis on deviantart, his realistic pokemon are amazing
>>42342422Lizard bulba family works well imo
>>42342422*This* is a good realistic pokemon. It still looks like the actual fucking pokemon but I think I could see this thing IRL. If other "realistic" artists drew arcanine they would probably make its fucking skin fall off and the stripes be scars or some stupid crap.
>>42342504on another note, let's get an arcanine
>>42342283Dude that Braviary page is amazing
>>42342368Same. A few of the ones I've posted are actually how I imagine them, then there are ones that just look good, but aren't really "Pokemon"Damnit captcha, thats quiche, not pie
>>42342537Ok real talk, why is swinub so a cute?
>>42342582Because it's tiny, rolly-poly, and has exaggerated features. Perfect for cuteness.
>>42342582Because they're baby boars mixed with guinea pigs. It's physically impossible for them to not be cute. Personally, I think it's the small legs. Makes you want to protect them
>>42342619>>42342582>>42342657also, snorting noises are fucking adorable. I have a dog who snorts when she sniffs and I can barely resist the urge to snuggle her on sight when she does so
>>42342657Good thing ours is a badass who has partaken in the strength of a beedrill. He don't need no protection. Also suprised no one in the village has made a move to eat our swinub.
>>42342695Well, he's still in our backpack. Clearly he belongs to us and is not to be considered game.
>>42342537eh realism is over rated,
>>42342537>>42342707Okay real talk, I would snuggle the fuck out of one of those things.They look like they would scurry around the floor like a fuzzy roomba.
>>42342774Arcanine is a majestic motherfucker. Can we have all R-K-9's RKO all Machamps due to what OP said further up?
>>42342790A cute squealing/snorting roomba that turns into a mammoth.
>>42342803not saying there aren't good ones
>>42342810I don't think we can't catch an arcananine but a growlithe yeh then simply train it up into an arcanine. Growlithe should act pretty much like a wild dog. Touchy and suspicious at first but friendly and loyal once it knows you.
>>42342864I don't think we can catch arcanine. Jesus fucking word salad
>>42342864I wanna see a baby swinub and a baby growlithe/vulpix wrestling now.
>>42342911Yes. I also want this now.
>>42342858So how's that post coming?We're coming up on an hour
Sorry, almost done. Writing a lot
>>42343173No no, it's fine. Was just wondering about progress.
"Thank you. We lost much knowledge in the fire, and my tribe would gain much happiness if I were to return with more than I lost.""Good. I shall arrange a meeting. It is lucky you arrived on the eve of the solstice. She is often gone for weeks at a time, following Pokemon. Her wanderlust seems to run in the family, her brother before her left, and is yet to return." Cato stands, then walks to the small cooking area. It's hard packed earth, with shelves at waist level of raw wood to hold instruments. A small fire burns in a stone box, open on one side. The top of the firebox is made of thin stone, held aloft by arches of fired clay and smaller stone. Cato cuts thin slices of slowpoke steaks on the stone, the fatty meat sizzling instantly. A godly aroma fills the building, drawing its inhabitants out of the woodwork. Cato's grandchildren receive the first strips of the meat, eating them straight off the fire. The eldest feeds a portion of his to a Eevee that clings to his side, it's fur sleek and soft. One day, given time, it should evolve into a Leafeon. You comment on this to him, only to get a cocked head and questions on what Leafeons are. Have these people never raised an Eevee before?1/2Writing the festival at the moment
anyone want me to archive now?
>>42343246The night passes quickly, the entire Chesian clan talking with you like old friends. Despite the age differences(7,9,23,24, and 58), all of the clan seems interested in your pokedex. With the great book placed on top of a table, you describe life in the Endless forest. Descriptions lush green plants, so familiar to you, draw many questions from the young children. Many Pokemon, including many bug types, are completely alien. Yamna, a common food in the Endless forest, is apparently unknown. In the same manner, Cato and his son, Markus, talk of beings shaped like massive Tropius', but lacking in all leaves. Markus talks with pride to have helped defeat one, forcing one the size of a house of the side of a cliff. He even pulls a cloak from an chest, made of a shimmering blue leather. It sparkles like water, the color shifting like that of the northern lights. Pic unrelated to anything
>>42343286>arkus, talk of beings shaped like massive Tropius', but lacking in all leaves. Markus talks with pride to have helped defeat one, forcing one the size of a house of the side of a cliff. He even pulls a cloak from an chest, made of a shimmering blue leather. It sparkles like water, the color shifting like that of the northern lights.
>>42343286Aurorus? I almost didn't catch that.
>>42343375Oh, you beat me to it.
>>42343426that was one of the tracking choices last thread>round, deep footprint. It appears to be a quadruped, a juvenile and an adult. The adult print is as long across as your entire arm. The smaller prints are as big as your hand
>>42343466Fuck kinda wish we got that one. But then again we probably just would have died or been run offHey if swinub is still in our backpack let's grab him out. I'm sure he would love some chow and new friends
>>42343466I came in right as we got Dire, I didn't feel like searching through the pokedex at the time to figure out what the other prints were.Don't remember it posted by anyone either.
>>42343522Especially if Pokémon are more animalistic than in the cartoon. It will need to be trained to be comfortable around new people or bad things can happen.
>>42343522This Thread has been Archived guys remember to upvote. http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/42332769/
>>42343598I think you meant this:http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Neolithic%20Pokemon%20Quest
>>42343538I posted a list with guesses on what was what. got 3 out of 4 right the first try though that the first one was a bergmite and Avalugg pair because i didn't think of the fossils not being fossils yet.1.Amaura2.Sneasel3.Swinub4.Snover>>42343522>Fuck kinda wish we got that one. But then again we probably just would have died or been run offwas the worst choice out of the 4 Imo
Thanks for archiving, sorry for the wait. I'm trying to get the people to seem more alive, which takes time to think of a culture.
>>42343665Not mad about our choice at all, swinub da best ice type
>>42343679agreed, though Avalugg comes close
>>42343677you do you man, this is a great thread
>>42343677>sorry for the waitnothing for you to be sorry about
>>42344013That picture is amazing
Finally, the clan retires to their bedrolls. You place your pack against a wall of the firebox, a prime location with plenty of heat. Cato's family is spread across the space in front of the box, heat pouring from the embers onto the family. Arceus, when was the last time you slept like that? At least three years, the day of your induction to the hunters. What would your life had been, had the tribe not been in constant movement?You wake with the family, and break your fast with yet more of the slowpoke meat, alongside some kind of steaming grains and a side of berries mixed together. The children talk excitedly through the meal, barely able to remain in place. Once released, they charge to a set of cubbies against the wall. The pair dresses in less than a minute, bouncing around in complex suits of red fabric, sky blue beads, and braids of white and fresh green cord. The rest of the clan dresses at a much more sedate pace, donning clothing in the same style as the children. Cato's includes a heavy cape of fur, though the rest of the family's clothing doesn't match it. All of the clothing has an airy, light appearance, much like what you wore in the Endless Forest. "Here lad, put this on." Cato hands you a thin vest of muted orange fabric, three green cords holding it closed at the bottom. You slip off your normal tunic, and tie the vest in place. "Now, the festival will begin with a short ceremony. After it is finished, the village is going to be celebrating the solstice. Just remember to have fun, and don't burn the village down. I'm still getting it for that."1/3?
>>42344138You follow Cato's family out of the building, and join a stream of people dressed similarly. From each house, comes one man wearing a thick cloak of furs. All of these men bunch together in the street, a brown rock within a roaring fire. The stream of people comes to a halt in the middle of the village, where a low eight sided stage has been built. A stone pillar rises from the ground, through the stage, and ends it ring of bowls encircling of the pillar. The men in cloaks, possibly the eldest in each clan, mount the stage. You stand silently near the back of the crowd, watching the motionless men on the stage. After close to ten minutes, something happens. A murmur pulsates through the crowd, starting in the front and working its way back. You catch a few snippets of talk, though none of it makes any sense. They talk of the dragon within the mountain, frozen on all days but this. Water shoots from the pillar, arcing gracefully to land in the eight bowls. It continues to flow, spilling out of the bowls and onto the stage. The eight men onstage take hold of the stone bowls, and lift them from the pillar. With a unified cry, they throw the water into the waiting crowd. The cloaks drop to the stage, piling around the pillar. The men, Cato included, place the bowls back on their holders. Once this is completed, the crowd bursts into lilting cries of joy. A wave of children swarm the stage, pushing and shoving to get close to the water. Laughter and shrieks of joy emanates from the laughing children, and the crowd's cheers redouble.
>>42344165>>42344138Did the village just get ejaculated on?
>>42344314Did you really just reduce that imagery to an ejaculation joke..... goddamnit anon
so what kind of dragon pokemon you guys think lives up here?
>>42344455Salamance is my first bet. I can see maybe Hydregon or whatever its called as well.
>>42344455OP confirmed yesterday it was Kyurem
>>42344490>Kyuremhuh, that so but I didn't think OP would let us find out about a legendary so soon?
The celebration begins, with the stage being quickly disassembled. A depression surrounding the pillar slowly fills with water, knee deep, and then fills with people. Large clay jugsare carried out from houses, and a array of mugs, cups, and bowls placed on tables next to them. The crowd cycles through the water, and the press of bodies pushes you into it as well. Amazingly, the water is warm, as if it were heated by the sun. In this land of ice and snow, it serves of a reminder of the love of Ho-oh. You follow the crowd to the jugs, and take a small bowl of the purple liquid at the urging of some of the people nearby. Many seem happy to meet a new person, demanding that you share a quick drink. The sips you take of the purple liquid, which both invigorates and intoxicates, slowly add up. Something tells you that nine months from now, this small village of fire haired people is going to see a very sudden boom in population. The day wears on, drinking and telling tales of your life burning through the hours. As the sun sets, the water stops flowing from the pillar. With the fall of the water, so too does the party die down. You manage to sober up a bit, and Cato finds you within the crowd. He steers you to a new table, which has a number of berries set on platters. Along with a number of the other village people, you dine on the fruits of the Chesto bush. "Now lad, remember how I said I'd set up a meeting 'tween you and Rosalia? Good. I grabbed your book for you, you're due at her house in four minutes. Have fun together." Cato points you down the street, then hands you the pokedex. >Roll Credits>End Episode 2>any advice or tips? Looking to improve. >>42344314...Sexual symbolism was a very big part of life back then Honestly, I didn't think of that until you said it.
>>42344617Great fucking thread OP, hope you can do it again son. as far as advice goes, maybe try to write a bit quicker? also don't forget our furry pig that we have with us, he disappeared.
>>42344617Thanks for running, Hickory. This was good. A bit slow, but overall very fun.
>>42344617so what happened to our swinub? he seemed kinda disappear after we entered the village.
>>42344793>>42344684He's still with you, I just got caught up writing about the other stuff, that I kinda left him out in the cold. I'll add a drunk Swinub scene next thread, and remember him in the next threads
>>42344793He's sleeping in our bag, all curled up and looking adorable. We couldn't bear the thought of interrupting such a cute scene, so we left him out of the festivities.
>>42344617A twitter for announcements would be nice, and don't forget our furry little roomba.I got worried somebody ate him when we weren't looking, or when we got drunk on rock spunk.
>>42344835>drunk swinub fucking fund it Your world building is pretty great man, some of that imagery was very very well done.
>>42344617>Sexual symbolism was a very big part of life back thenActually, yeah. Imagine how many cave pictures of dongs and tits and carvings of fertile womenfolk have been found. That's likely only a fraction of all there ever was.I bet there's more than one weird folk tale in this setting about how "if you conceive a child in x pokemon's shadow, it will have some of it's strength."
Okay, new twitter is @neolithicQMNext thread is next week, Saturday, normal time. That's 4-5 pm EST
>>42345009Thanks for the run boss it was fun. Your twitter isn't showing up though.
>>42345052Try it as @NeolithicQMI'm not sure if it's case sensitive
>>42345086I'm guessing Bob Jones is a b.s. name, like Richard C. Mongler or something?
>>42345086that's not working eithersomeone got a link for me?
>>42345116Yep. Wishing I'd though of a funny one now. Can people change their names after starting a twitter?Is anyone else's captcha getting really specific? It used to be choose the fruits, and now it's choose the oranges
>>42345171Captcha is weird, managed to find the twitter. Curious to what your inspiration was to do this.
>>42344617>"Now lad, remember how I said I'd set up a meeting 'tween you and Rosalia? Good. I grabbed your book for you, you're due at her house in four minutes. Have fun together." Cato points you down the street, then hands you the pokedex. Yeah boi, get some.Also, absolutely dandy quest so far Hickory.
>>42345206I was playing with a couple of quest ideas, before I settled on this one. I honestly have no idea where the idea for this setting came from. It could have been the recent magic materials thread, which had a number of cool materials that didn't need smithing. Most likely, the idea for it just appeared. I loved pokemon(still do), and loved the old pulp cavemen movies. Somewhere in my head, the two mixed together. I'm surprised more people haven't done it before. >>42345261Cato is based on one of my friend's father. Getting into the character's backstory would be pretty fun, though it has no bearing on the quest.
>>42345353I'd totally be cool hearing about it, unless by "no bearing" you mean "might become a spoiler depending on what the players do"
>>42345353This setting really is awesome, never be ashamed to love Pokemon, it is a great franchise. I really wanna see what other tribes are out there, these guys are pretty benevolent, I wanna see the dicklords.
>>42345391Nah, it's pretty much just talking about his life before Cain. If you never learn about him, it wouldn't effect the story. >>42345395I'm happy people like it. I feel like world building is something I'm better at, but my dialogue suffers. Something I'm hoping to work on in this quest, so force characters to interact. I'm also trying to give non speaking characters, like Dire, personality. Don't worry, you'll meet them. I just figured it would be best not to send the dicks at you right away. you already met them in the first thread
>>42345493Sonnofa bitch, we need to fuck the up when Dire gets to be full size
>>42344585>implying a guy with a level 5 swinub can catch a fucking kyurim
>>42345493>dat spoileruw0tm8Your dialog is fine so far, but it seems like your avoiding standard dialog for more narrative. Not necessarily bad, just something to point out.I also hope Dire gets a buddy named Straights later. Fucking love that band. What would be a good pokemon to name Straights, though?
>>42345559>implying he couldn't Odor Sleuth the fuck out of kyurem
>>42345581something long and thin, Honedge maybe?
>>42345628Honedge might be fun, but would it be different in this age? Or are swords based on Honedge in the pokeworld?Don't mind me Hickory, just helping you worldbuild
>>42345581those weren't wild pokemonGood to know, I'll try to work on that
>>42345771Well, there are some copper weapons floating around. I really like the idea that it's bugs embedded in the sword, so that might be your chance to get one. That kinda leaves it open to the idea of honedge spears and other weapons. The monster in your dream was wielding a sword, which is becoming more common in the cities as copper becomes more common. At the moment, copper weapons are still reserved for great fighters or the wealthy.
>>42345823I keep forgetting about him, and that art makes him kinda look like a Digimon. Badass looking dude, though.>>42345886I hope we get one of those bugs that just attaches to our spear, and just hops on a new one if it breaks
>>42345886I'm going to be real, I don't really like bug honedge. I'd rather they actually be ghosts
