After getting lost in the bayou during an outing for your college ecology lab Trevor, you, wound up in some strange hidden realm inhabited by creatures like goblins and trolls. Initially it was quite a scary place as you were taken prisoner and nearly didn't survive. With some cunning though, you played upon the prejudice of the orc chieftain of a tribe here, and prompted a challenge to power. With dirty tricks, cunning and a bit of luck, you managed to win. This caused an uproar among the tribe but after much deliberation and consulting traditions, they agreed upon giving you a chance to try out being the new chieftain.

It has been several days since then, as you continue to adjust to this strange land and its ways, as well as the workings of the tribe and your new accepted role as chieftain.

>An open ended game, what do you do?

>Link to the last thread

http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive/1220100/

Specifically, last time you had dealt with some deserters to the tribe, well as a newly formed intimate relationship with the now widowed orc wife of the late former chief. There are obviously many issues you could concern yourself with, but people of the tribe are content to let you take things slowly as you learn and adjust. You get the distinct feeling though that this is somewhat in part to their desires to control and run aspects of the tribe themselves.
>>
>>1265475
Going over the old thread, but looks interesting.
>>
>>1265475
>Trevor
>Not Abel
What did we do last time, where did we stop at?
>>
>>1266004
At the very end, you were sorting out the matter of a goblin couple who as punishment, you were accepting them on as servant/slaves.

Aside of that you also had some plans to visit the goblin side of town in order to discuss or find something out about the Warriors Guild.
>>
>>1266015
Well i dont know what Mastermind Anon had planned so i say we go Hang out with Orc Wife
>>
>>1266039
It's worth remembering that Hanasvette, the former chieftess, is not actually your wife. A matter you'll have to deal with if you continue a relationship with her, instead of settling with someone else.

If you're good with that though, you can try and find her, sure.
>>
>>1266075
Find young orc waifu
http://www.hentai-foundry.com/pictures/user/34san/115351/Roxanna-lady-bits
>>
>>1266103
It's entirely within your means to find a younger potential orc partner, however you can tell trouble will come of it from the former chieftess. Also a fair observation in her favor, that while she is older, she does have the experience of helping to run the tribe and the connections related to it.

Just something to consider. If you seek someone younger though, yes it's possible.
>>
>>1266103
Bruh
wait
We can't do that yet, the chieftess still lives! Let's just hang out with Nera and Tari until Mastermind Anon comes back
>>
>>1266134
You don't need one other player to do the playing for you, it's a cooperative game!
>>
>>1266119
I'm getting conflicting messages here.
>the former chieftess, is not actually your wife
>you'll have to deal with if you continue a relationship with her, instead of settling with someone else.
>instead of settling with someone else.

We can fail to the top, we've done a good job of that so far.
>>
>>1266179
The thing is i dont know the next step of the plan so i don't know how to proceed!
>>
Ask to retire to your new chief hut with the translator and the milf.
We have things to discuss.
>>
>>1266205
Not yet.


AND HELLO OP!
>>
>>1266187
My mistake, the former chieftess, is the widow of the former chief whom you killed. She wasted no time though getting close to you, which has worked well for her since you were decided upon to become the new chieftain. As much as that may sound disingenuous though, she's been very supportive of your claim and is a large reason you were supported for the position of chieftain in the first place, and she certainly has been very loving on a personal level.

But all that said, the two of you are not actually married or anything official yet. You've yet to make that decision, though obviously the relationship she has with you now, would likely influence your choice.
>>
>>1265471
>Go to the Goblin War Guild

>>1266205
Going to fuck us over, anon
>>
>>1266221
That you Master?
>>
>>1266221
>>1266227
Wut?
>>
>>1266231
Wot.

>>1266238
Too soon for confrontation. We're just a figurehead for now.
>>
>>1266238
The chieftess hold more power than us over the orcs a the moment. I'm trying to set the conditions for the "flip".
>>
>>1266249
Ok.... What confrontation? Didn't the old chief get ousted? Unless he still lives in the hut, its ours now.
>>
>>1266249
:^)
>>
>>1266259

>>1266205
>Ask to retire to your new chief hut with the translator and the milf.
>We have things to discuss.
You want to speak to the chieftess, yes? Im speaking of the chief's wife, no he himself.
>>1266262
>>
>>1266257
Holds more sway, but her legitimacy and future is largely dependent on either us or the old chief, and she choose us. I don't see how going somewhere private to talk is counterproductive? Walking around with no clue as to the inner workings of the tribe or culture, while acting all pompous and important without merit is probably more damaging to us. It also undermines our long term power if we are seen lead around by her instead of us.
>>
>>1266269
>You want to speak to the chieftess, yes?
Yes...? Since we need to establish a mutual understanding and ways to benefit each other. We need the translator goblin since we can speak their language worth a damn, even though we could have tried learning some back at the goblin village.
>>
>>1266205
You can still meet with the the chieftess (going to call her by her name now) Hanasvette, but for now you decide upon seeking out the Warrior's Guild in the goblin side of town. First you have to make your way out of the orc side though, and along the way you are sought after and requested to be stopped. It seems there's a situation that needs your attention. Following the young orc who approached you, you're led to an area between several houses, where there's a standoff between sides of orcs and goblins.

It seems that there's some confusion over a matter of the goblin side of town expanding into the orc side of town without asking. The goblins though say that they made a fair exchange with the owners of the parcel of land here, while the orc family are claiming that exchange is void because the orc to have made it died recently and never made clear about the deal.

Naturally they turn to you, since technically all of the orc side of town is your land, for as long as you are associated with the orcs.

>>1266257
You are aware, that every day you act, she also is doing things. And she's focusing only on her fellow orc kin, her hold on their support just gets stronger and stronger.
>>
>>1266269
Sorry for the typos.
>>1266269
>no
not
>>1266273
Who said we're acting pompous? She certainly loves us, but she's also extremely political savvy and ambitious. She wants to rule the tribe, and we will inevitably end up as a puppet. One that she loves, but a puppet nonetheless. We need her to think that we don't know her plans just yet. Not until we set the proper conditions. We need to strengthen our ties with the goblins and certain orc individuals. And moreover, NOT choosing her will cause and uproar. We've already come to be intimate with her and choosing to marry another will no doubt incite her anger and that of the orc faction, it'll be an outrage. We need to approach this very carefully. Especially if the orcs begin to react violently.
>>
>>1266283
>You are aware, that every day you act, she also is doing things. And she's focusing only on her fellow orc kin, her hold on their support just gets stronger and stronger.
I'm aware. I need that spy report by the end of the day before we turn in.

>>1266283
>Ask the goblins if they have any evidence
>>
>>1266285
>Who said we're acting pompous?
Who said we are not?
Nothing we are doing really conflicts or shows how aware we are, not yet anyways.

We could just off her then.
>>
>>1266304
>We could just off her then.
We will, as soon as we are able to. And we certainly wont speak to her in her own home surrounded by servants who are her own friends and family in the orc district. That's her turf.

And we aren't being pompous. You made an exaggerated assumption.
>>
>>1266304
>Nothing we are doing really conflicts or shows how aware we are, not yet anyways.
Im fairly certain directly confronting her as you proposed will. And that's a problem.
>>
>>1266285
It's not impossible that if your relationships is strong enough, she would welcome ruling with you side by side, rather than over you. Not certain, but possible.

As for her anger, whether you two had an intimate relationship or not isn't much a factor, she'd be angry no matter what you chose, if it wasn't her. Even if you sought a chieftess of some other tribe to unite yours and theirs, Hana would still be upset.

>>1266301
The goblins have the goods they claim were exchanged for the land, but they don't have paperwork because the orcs don't deal like that. At least not within the confines of a bargain they don't. The orcs of course though claim that the goods the goblins show, are goods they just gathered themselves for this scam purpose.
>>
>>1266310
>And we aren't being pompous. You made an exaggerated assumption.
Being paraded around with Hanasvette, while being introduced as the new boss, despite have little in way of the right to rule, comes off as pompous. Maybe not to you but it does to others.

>>1266317
Its not a confrontation unless you force things or demand them to be a certain way. The point was to communicate and try to show or ask for intentions. We can even cover it up by pretending to have the ultimate goal of finding a way home, if you're so scared of her.
>>
>>1266337
>Being paraded around with Hanasvette, while being introduced as the new boss, despite have little in way of the right to rule, comes off as pompous
LOL! You mean SHE paraded US around.

>>1266337
>Maybe not to you but it does to others.
The others welcomed it, man lol. They gave more approval than I did, mounds more. I think this is where your misunderstanding lied.

>Its not a confrontation unless you force things or demand them to be a certain way. The point was to communicate and try to show or ask for intentions.
You're misunderstanding the definition of a confrontation.

>We can even cover it up by pretending to have the ultimate goal of finding a way home, if you're so scared of her.
1. That won't work. It sounds like bull right off the bat.
2. I'm not scared. I'm just not a fool.
>>
>>1266333
Can we examine the goods? And OP, can voodoo determine authenticity in some way?
>>
>>1266342
Geez
Are you trying to come off as a dick? Or is it unintentional?
Not trying to be a dick or anything
Or maybe that's just me
>>
>>1266354
I nearly always sound like a dick. Those weren't sarcastic "lols". But no, it's not intentional.
>>
>>1266347
You actually have no idea of that, but you could try and find out if it's the case. Though the folks gathered there might not like if if they sought you for help, are looking to you for a solution, and you just run off.
>>
>>1266362
Would it be alright to send for a shaman? Troll Lady, perhaps?
>>
>>1266367
We wouldnt have to leave their presence.
>>
>>1266367
You could send someone to go and fetch her. It's better than leaving yourself, but they're all gathered there expecting a timely answer. Meanwhile you'll be sitting there for at least several minutes doing nothing.
>>
>>1266342
LOL! You mean SHE paraded US around.
Yes, was it any other way?

Its like your just looking for a reason to argue over nothing.

>>1266357
Well you come off as confrontational ;^p
>>
>>1266383
>Yes, was it any other way?
Nope. And it was fairly obvious to the tribe too.

>>1266379
Okay, if they want to rush, ask if the orcs have any evidence of what the goblins are proposing is a scam. Ask the goblins if they have any living witnesses to the deal.
>>
>>1266383
>Well you come off as confrontational ;^p
Sorry, always happens.
>>
>>1266395
No worries, we just need to communicate better.
>>
>>1266398
Hold on, I'll set up a telepathic communication line.
>>
>>1266393
Seeking to resolve the matter yourself, you try to get more information and ask the parties involved. From what the goblins say, those specific goblins are themselves witnesses according to them, though there aren't any orc witnesses around. At least by description that sounds like a scam, like maybe they intentionally took advantage of a lone orc.

As for the orcs, only two are actual family of the deceased. To them, the land traded wasn't really the dead orc's to give away. Also either way they don't much care, they're not losing property to any goblins, one way or the other.

Don't be cheeky.

Ayyy lam- Hey no, stay out!
>>
>>1266406
What do they mean the land wasn't the dead orcs' to give away? Do they have some claim to it?

>>1266409
Do not resist. It will only hurt more.

>>1266406
>Don't be cheeky.
I'm not. :^)
Cheekiness isn't apart of my personality. I have worse things in there.
>>
>>1266406
See if they have the goods traded for it, if they don't want to give up land, they can return the goods to the goblins and get their land back.
>>
>>1266414
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VdddZIcyykM
>>
>>1266414
According to them, when he died the land should have gone to them or else someone who defeated him, not some scheming goblins.

>>1266415
They do have the goods traded, or rather the goblins are giving them (since when the orc died the goods remained in his house which they took over) to the surviving kin, but the orcs don't want the goods.
>>
>>1266415
Screams only make me happier.

>>1266421
The deal is null and void for the lack of evidence provided on both sides. Tell the goblins they must next time provide sufficient proof and multiple witnesses on either side to be present in the transaction.

And the orc's right to re-design the ownership of the land was not existent. He was not in position to give away land.

The goods traded will return to the goblins and the orc's family will inherit the land, or whomever killed the orc.
>>
Tell the orcs, to give back the goods, and the goblins to give back the land, if no new deal or compromise can be reached.

It seems both sides agree that a transaction occurred, and goods were exchanged.

So the orc who died, who was he? He owned all of the land or only part of it? At what point was the deal made and time from his death?
>>
>>1266433
>>1266442
In the end you decide to just cancel the deal. The orcs are pleased with this but the goblins are quite unhappy, setting about dismantling their construction and grumbling while other orcs jeer at them during it all.

The two orc family members though, grateful to you ask if they can do anything to make it up to you for your favorable judgement?

For the orc that died he was a performer but an older fellow, probably died of natural causes. The deal was apparently made not long before his death, though why he did such a thing and caused trouble for his relatives, is unclear. He did apparently own all the land himself, but it's not like it was a lot of land, just a small plot with a house next to the goblin side of town's wall.
>>
>>1266454
>grateful to you ask if they can do anything to make it up to you for your favorable judgement?
By being loyal to us. We were inaugurated into a chieftain, we promised to do only the best for them. We only ask them to be happy and to fight for themselves when they need to.

trying to get them to spread the word within the orc sector
>>
>>1266454
Ask them to help the goblins expand in the other direction away from the orcs, and towards the edge of the town, nothing big, just help chop down trees, and clear big rocks.
>>
>>1266481
Forgot to add, in our name.
>>
>>1266468
Loyalty is a very cheap asking price, and they happily give it. The others around to witness approve of this and display as much before heading off in their own directions to get back to their daily activities and duties.

>>1266481
This isn't too much more to ask of them, but the goblins refuse and don't want their help, spitting curses and the like at the lot of you. Maybe these orcs could try or offer again later though, they'll make an effort at least.
>>
>>1266488
Tell the orcs to begin and try to respect the goblins. We promised them their own pride, that they would grasp it in their own hands. But they wont be able to do that if there's turmoil within their own tribe. They will eat themselves until they are nothing but fodder for other tribes to toy with. They don't need to love the goblins, but they shouldn't try and make enemies of them, no matter how small or greedy they are. Leave their schemes and greed for us to deal with.
>>
>>1266488
Go to the Goblin War Guild.
>>
>>1266496
Speaking like this draws some scorn from them and any orcs within earshot, the idea of cooperating with or tolerating goblins. Clearly this isn't an easy to grasp notion to them, so you imagine difficulties between the two sides to be longstanding.

>>1266497
Finally you continue on your way out of the orc side of town, through the settlement center and over to the goblin side. You have been to the Warrior Guild before, so going back along the narrow streets and past the certain buildings is familiar enough to you.

Once there, one of the largest buildings in the goblin side of town to accommodate the number of warrior groups, you are able to wait outside as usual while an assistant asks what you need of them?
>>
>>1266522
Ask about the progress of the spies. Then ask to speak with all the leaders. Especially traps, ambush, and assassinations.
>>
>>1266530
It's only been a couple of days but after lots of trial and error the spies are able to move about the orc side of town decently well without being noticed, especially at night. No major discoveries though since they haven't yet infiltrated the longhouse.

Meanwhile, you request the leaders of each of the groups whom belong to the guild. After some requests sent around and hurrying about by assistants, a fair number of the leaders are assembled. Not all though, as plenty are either too busy or not even present there in the building.

Whatever you wish to speak to them about though, they are willing to listen for the most part.
>>
>>1266551
Tell them to begin focusing on refining their techniques on orcs. Learn to kill an orc effectively and efficiently. Use chemicals and poisons, learned from trolls if they must.
>>
>>1266556
To us the poisons or chemicals when they're practicing. But have them ready and refine the poisons and its lethality or general effectiveness
>>
>>1266563
>us
use
>>
>>1266556
>>1266563
Assassination and poisoning then, is the focus you stress to them, to devote their efforts to improving. Those who do that sort of thing agree, but most who don't wonder if you wasted their time summoning them here to talk, if so they'll be understandably cross.

At the same time, Nera you notice approaches, looking a little annoyed but willing to wait for you to finish up with the warrior's guild.
>>
>>1266572
Tell everyone to refine their techniques against orc targets. Not just assassination and poison, OP.
>>
>>1266575
That's better to them though with the entire guild focused to this end, you get questions as to why and for what purpose? They remind you that when out fighting, they don't only fight orcs.
>>
>>1266572
See what Nera wants, and look for ways to gain good standing with the trolls.
>>
>>1266563
>>1266575
How are we going to find effective poisons without killing orcs? Won't that raise suspicion?
>>
>>1266582
They also fight trolls, yes. But one, the orcs will respect them for what they do if they can kill them without hardly getting a scratch on them. And it is the orcs that are usually military leaders and the more diverse fighters. If they eliminate orcs and commanders, we will gain a large upper-hand over enemies.
>>
>>1266583
They're a lot more easier. We just need to be just and fair, while showing interest in tradition and religion. Which Ive done thus far.

>>1266582
Then yes, turn our attention to Nera.
>>
>>1266583
>>1266600
For a way to get in the good graces of the trolls, you'll have to find your own way, though you've been doing well so far.

In the meantime you speak with Nera, who is cross that you're siding with the orcs against goblins, and denying them deals they made with others of the tribe. She's obviously referring to the property matter earlier, and must have come looking for you when she heard about what happened.
>>
>>1266617

Crap, wrong words. Scratch the message before.

Express that although we wanted to side with the goblins, neither side provided sufficient proof to the claim on land and so we set it back to before the deal in order to mitigate damage to either side. Siding with the orcs was not our intention.
>>
>>1266639
>Crap, wrong words. Scratch the message before.
Nevermind. I deleted my post before this.
>>
>>1266639
>>1266643
Like the other goblins, she doesn't seem pleased even with your logical reasoning, and pouts about it. The impression you get is that like the others, she expected you to just blindly side with the goblins no matter what, and she's upset that you didn't. Even if it wasn't your intent anyway, your action emboldens the orcs to not respect goblins. In saying this she angrily kicks your shin and accuses you of not respecting them either before storming off.
>>
>>1266617
I was hoping for little side missions like the dispute with the orcs and goblins but w/e.
>>
>>1266677
Oh fuck. Follow her. Tell her to wait.
>>
We can take some heat off of us by establishing a set of codes, laws, and ethics. That way there is a deferment to law and order, and we can punish or shame those who disrespect it.

But that's more down the road, we aren't nearly in good graces for a shake up like that.
>>
>>1266678
There may be tasks and things to see to for the trolls, but you won't find them in goblin town.

>>1266683
You follow Nera and tell her to wait but this annoys her. She does stop but clearly has very little patience for you right now. All the while you start to attract the attention of goblins around, expecting a fight.
>>
>>1266689
Apologize to her sincerely. Tell her she knows we love the goblins. And we will try harder to show it through our actions. Ask her to forgive us.

Women are such a damn hassle
>>
>>1266683
I think its one of those things where we can't please everyone, and we need to both build and spend rep or social capital.

We could tell her about the trap door underneath the house we briefly found to make her feel better.
>>
>>1266700
Uh...I wouldnt do that just yet. I'd rather investigate that personally first.
>>
>>1266702
We didn't find much when we looked, and I'm not sure how we are going to be able to go back in without drawing attention now that we are no longer a prisoner, but a chieftain.

I suppose we can cause a distraction and sneak in.
>>
>>1266687
That's a good idea but you can tell it will take a lot for things like that to be implemented and accepted, when it's not part of the local traditions.

>>1266698
>>1266700
You apologize to Nera as honestly as you can. She isn't particularly won over by it though, even though she accepts it and you're seen by many around to be giving apologies to the goblin leader. A little less annoyed, she asks what you'll do then to make it up, for the mistake you made? There's some shouts from onlookers about what to say or what she should accept from you, but she waits for your answer if any.
>>
>>1266711
What're some of the things the onlookers say?
>>
>>1266711
We could dig through that big pile of junk and help sort it for goods. Make the village richer.

Was the pile only in the goblin town, and belongs entirely to goblins? I recall when they thought when we went through it disguised the got upset when they thought we were an orc.
>>
>>1266720
Goblin territory, yes.
>>
>>1266711
Oh my!
I hope they aren't l-lewd
>>
>>1266724
I'm compelled to kneel down and kiss her, whispering "my heart" after but that would cause a shitstorm and I kind of want to do this for the tease.
>>
>>1266724
>>1266712
Some are a bit lewd. Most are material gifts or displays of submission, though a fair few you don't really understand, like giving her your eyes or your years or memories, some strange meaning to them which eludes you.

>>1266720
That is quite a good offer if you want to make it, yes. They always appreciate trash and your services.
>>
>>1266735
Oh sure then. Do this:
>>1266720

AND HUGS.
>>
>>1266730
Why not bring her to face-to-face level, get in the bathroom, kiss, then ask her to forgive us and after that, leave the room
>>
>>1266740
I thought we were trying to not piss off that milf orc?
>>
>>1266747
You can hug friends and family, boyo. There's nothing wrong with hugs and we've been doing this for a while now. Tari too.
>>
>>1266746
lol "I can't give you my eyes, whatever that means, but I can give you my lips"
>>
>>1266747
Holy crap. You cool with this, anon? No one has to know. I'm so tempted:
>>1266746
>>1266730
>>
>>1266756
Not when we are surrounded a crowd of goblins watching.
>>
>>1266756
It's 2v1 either way
>>
>>1266759
by a crowd*
>>
>>1266759
That's why we're doing it on the bathroom, man! Where no one can see us, they wouldn't know what happened
>>
>>1266759
In private, yes. Tell her we would like to talk in private now. Then when we're alone, kneel down and kiss her, keeping close enough for her to feel our breathe as we offer her out heart.

OOooooh boy, the deviant in me is getting riled.
>>
>>1266766
I would rather not do this in a bathroom. You're also assuming their bathrooms are the same as ours.
>>1266767
>out heart
our heart
>>
Ayo so what's the decision?

It should go without saying that if you get smoochy with her that's going to have some implications about your partner status.
>>
>>1266776
First, in public, this:
>>1266720
>We could dig through that big pile of junk and help sort it for goods. Make the village richer.

Then, after getting to a private place upon request:
>>1266767
>Tell her we would like to talk in private now. Then when we're alone, kneel down and kiss her, keeping close enough for her to feel our breathe as we offer her our heart.

>partner status
Fuck. Welp.
>>
>>1266780
>>1266776
Fuck the tradition. Deviants dont obey rules. It's in the definition.
>>
>>1266776
>Partner Status
We fuked the orc chieftess Cmon, one smooch in secret with Nera that no one will see won't do much harm i hope

It'll imply a load to Nera though. B-but I really want to.
>>
>>1266794
No certainly not but it's going to put hopes and ideas in her head. I'm not suggesting it will cause some huge travesty if you get close with Nera in secret, but it will change the relationship the two of you have, more depending on what it leads to.

Well in the meantime at least you offer to dig through their trash more to find her valuables and things of want. She's very accepting of this and hugs your legs at the offer, not so upset, in fact rather happy now. The other goblins around similarly cheer, and think that's a worthy gift, and they are all interested in what you'll find.

Enough that, if you're willing to do it now, they'll start to gather and follow you. Given that it's getting late, not too long before dinner though, Nera says it's fine if you do it tomorrow.
>>
>>1266799
I'm compelled to kill everyone in this entire tribe except for Tari now, because she's the bro-sis. But that's a form of escapism, and among other more obvious reasons, I will not advocate the near-complete genocide of the tribes-people. Not like we could do it anyway, which is one of the more obvious reasons.

DO IT, OP. I LIKE A CHALLENGE.
>>1266780

>>1266808
>Not like we could do it anyway, which is one of the more obvious reasons.

Implying you couldn't defect to some other tribe and with all the info, turn traitor against this tribe.

We'll do the digging tomorrow. And has the damn spy goblins made it back yet? All we asked them to do was watch who Hanasvette talked to.

Right now, Smooch Plan 01.

>>1266814
You already spoke earlier with the spying goblin group, they said they've been practicing but haven't yet been able to spy on Hana. That is a goal of theirs, but they're not that skilled enough yet.

At any rate though you offer to do the digging tomorrow, which Nera is fine with but makes your promise to her. For anything beyond that you'll have to specify, like if you're trying to get her alone somewhere or take some course of action.
>>
>>1266825
Does she know somewhere we can speak alone? Does she have an office or private quarters? We're mostly leaving it up to her to bring us to a place.
Right here, OP:
>>1266780
>>Tell her we would like to talk in private now. Then when we're alone, kneel down and kiss her, keeping close enough for her to feel our breathe as we offer her our heart.

Anyway I'm probably headed off now, will pick things up later though.

In the meantime, maybe figure out a player consensus on Trevor's relationship status, and what the goal is.

Troll Lady Team here

>>1266853
We would start a shitstorm, man.
>>1266855
I'm an hour ahead, remember?
>>1266847
I told other anon that I an tolerate Troll Lady but I'm more closer to going with Nera. I don't really prefer any of them, however. But Hanasvette is more wife material, Nera more best friend, and Troll Lady is a nun.
So yah. Nera for me. But I'm willing to concede to anon's desire for Troll Lady due to certain reasons depending on the situation later.
>>
>>1266867
>We would start a shitstorm, man.
Clouds already forming mate.
>>
>>1266876
Then let the thunder come
>>1266847
How viable an action is defecting from the tribe to another settlement with Nera and Tari? Perhaps the trolls as well, using our Messiah status. And Keresville? I dont think she'd support it though.
>>
>>1266884
Oh damn
Maybe move onto a goblin controlled tribe? If those are even possible
>>
>>1267756
Yeah. Or we can pull a bold move and do it here.
>>
>>1267762
Nah
>>
>>1267756
There are goblin controlled tribes, just as there are troll controlled ones.

>>1266884
If you partnered with the trolls they'd probably be willing to depart with you. Not so much for the goblins since they're situated here. Tari with some convincing though would probably follow you anywhere, and Nera with a relationship. But then it's a case where you're on the run in a strange land with just two goblins on your side.

>>1266867
Well those are the potential choices within the tribe, but they each have benefits and drawbacks. You also have to consider how likely they are to use you for their own gains.

There are of course potential other options elsewhere if nothing appealed to you. Like other tribes, or even nomad or individual sorts, like finding an ogress and just living a quit farm life together, assuming she doesn't eat you.

>>1266853
Incidentally that could be possible with the orcs, and there were offers like that from some orc families. Maybe the goblins if you sought it, definitely not the trolls though, at least not the typical trolls of this tribe.

You know it to be a thing though, as it was explained to you, that if a partner couldn't have kids with you, then that's just a commonly accepted part of the tradition that you wouldn't have to remain together.

---

Anyway so, final say for what to do next? Are you trying something with Nera or continuing elsewhere? It's approaching dinnertime so that's something to keep mind of.
>>
>>1268336
Proceed. It should take a quick moment.
>>1266835
>>
>>1268345
So you ask to discuss the matter further someplace together, which Nera has access to, not suspecting anything. Following her for a little while through the busy streets of the goblin side of town and stopping occasionally to greet people or answer requests, she eventually brings you to a well-made looking little building. You have to crawl to fit inside, but find that it's busy with organizational looking folks. Nera gets a bunch of reports and you get greeted, but thankfully you crouch walk after her to a room aside she has to herself, pretty nicely furnished all things considered even if a lot of the decorations clearly are not understood their purpose in the human world.

She thinks you're there for business matters or the trash searching apology, but when you get the chance you grab her to turn her to face you. She's a bit confused, but completely caught off guard when you go for a kiss, struggling at first but eventually going soft in your hands. It's not too passionate just something light for a first time, but you barely separate when you end the kiss, your faces intimately close as you feel her heightened little breaths and she likely yours. After opening her eyes and blinking a few times, the realization creeps in and she goes from enjoying things to a little panicked. She has to remember to keep her voice down, as her big eyes shift around between looking at you, as if afraid or guilty that someone could be watching. To stop her hands shaking she also brings them close together at her chest, and is fidgeting a little in place as her heart and mind races.

She questions what about Hanasvette? She thought you two had something together, or were getting wed?
>>
>>1268393
>She questions what about Hanasvette? She thought you two had something together, or were getting wed?
So how DO we answer this? Hm.

Welp, if I fuck up, sorry, anons.

Tell her we never liked Hanasvette in that manner. And she seeks to only use us as well. We were strung along, knowing that we were the entire time but afraid to hurt her in anyway. But we understand that after she (Nera) had spoken to us about the property ordeal, that a good leader needs to be strong and needs to carry his people rather than BE carried by his people. So we'll stop letting Hanasvette carry us and instead do what we wanted to from the beginning. To carry her (Nera).

We don't know what the other goblins were speaking of before. But if they mean to give her our eyes to only look at her, we will. If they mean to give her our years to be hers, and only hers so long as we are alive, we will. If they mean to give her our memories so that when we are old and senile, all we will remember is that time we spent with her, and how damn happy we were, then we will.

>Tell her we never liked Hanasvette in that manner.

No, you only liked her enough to sleep together multiple times.
>>
>>1268393
You know, OP, marrying a troll makes for MUCH less problems and much more gain than marrying a goblin or orc. But that's boring. Let's make this interesting.
>>
>>1268429
BRUH
Why are you lying?
Wut about muh Troll Shaman Lady
>>
>>1268453
I didn't want to sleep with her. I just wanted to keep her from being pissed. Other anon wanted to though.

But I can give another example. We can say that if Hanasvette becomes chieftess, there will be little we can do to stop her from belittling the goblins as she will control the orc sector. We can't allow that to happen because goblins are family to us.

>>1268459
That's why I pinged you. We either go all in or dont. I'm too nice not to go all in so I need you to spill ideas.
>>
>>1268465
>We can say that if Hanasvette becomes chieftess, there will be little we can do to stop her from belittling the goblins as she will control the orc sector. We can't allow that to happen because goblins are family to us.
Because she's plotting.

>>1268465
>We can say that if Hanasvette becomes chieftess, there will be little we can do to stop her from belittling the goblins as she will control the orc sector. We can't allow that to happen because goblins are family to us.
But this is only a background reason. It's another reason why we couldnt remain passive any longer. This shouldnt stick out more than the "profession of love".
>>
>>1268453
ALSO, didn't she do the same thing? Trying to bed us to compel us into marrying her? She never liked us until we ate her out.
>>
>>1268481
You have no way of knowing that for sure. You always got the impression that she liked you, it's when things became intimate that you got the impression that she loved you.

Unless it's all some ruse, but she's never given you reason to think that.
>>
>>1268465
>That's why I pinged you. We either go all in or dont. I'm too nice not to go all in so I need you to spill ideas.

I dunno man, im a simple man, if it were up to me i would take Hanasvette/Nera/Shaman lady and go live a "normal life" in the marshes or here
>>
>>1268496
Stop making me feel bad, OP. Guilt is the most effective weapon against me. Which is ironic/

But I have trouble believing that she would reduce us to a mere puppet, a toy, if she did love us.

And, I do like Nera more than the other two. All goblins are cute but the way she reacts, like shrieking and biting us, or kicking us in the shins, is too cute.

The other reason for not hurting Hanasvette, and that's why we went along with her, is ture, however. For me at least.

>>1268509
...sorry I asked
>>
>>1268496
Everything I've said is true for me, OP, by the way. I can't speak for the intentions or thoughts of the other anons, however.
>>1268429
>>
>>1268568
That's fine. For a final decision though I'd think any option to have at least 2 supporters before committing to anything for sure.

Which means it's up to you to come up with a thing to do/say to postpone the situation with Nera, until a majority is obtained.
>>
>>1269096
Can we wait a little while longer? Putting it off here seems scummy to me. And yes, I know Im scum for doing what we're doing to Hanasvette regardless of what she's responsible over on her side, but there's only so much scumminess I can harbor.
>>
>>1269114
Wait for what longer?

>>
>>1269122
I'd like to keep our options open, and worry about getting hitched later.

I'm thinking we'd benift more by marrying the orcs that have human traits to increase our power. Marriages in these senses are more like political alliances.
>>
>>1269147
>>1269152
I'm not into lolis but okay.

>>1269170
Actually, trolls are the most beneficial. OP said it himself. And a single troll can take 15 orcs, as well as being intelligent themselves. AND they practice voodoo. I wanted to keep our options open as well but that isnt an option any longer, I think. And I dont want to base the marriage on something so...vain.
>>
>>1269179
Well maybe not intelligent but certainly wise. But they're intelligent enough.
>>
>>1269179
Not sure how that's vain, but if that's the case, then get with the trolls. We can breed a goblin army through the sheer force of our fucking. Just grab a cockgoblins and get to work, that way we won't have to deal with the baggage of the current goblin queen.
>>
>>1269202
She's not baggage :(

But no, we can't do that. Trolls are strict with monogamy. Mistresses or breeding for the purpose of breeding incites SCORN and high disapproval. Did you follow the previous thread, anon? I can summarize what I've learned thus far in regards to this matter.
>>
>>1269202
And I dont want the goblins for the population. I want them for their ingenuity, innovation, deftness, and the roles they play in our fighting force. They're also cute. And Nera and Tari are great goblins.
>>
>>1269202
And she's not a queen. Just a faction leader.

What's a "cockgoblin"?
>>
>>1269170
You can certainly put things off longer, but you'll need a way out of the immediate situation alone with Nera. Also if the relationship continues with Hana, you have to assume that eventually she'll end up with child, at which point keeping your options open is going to be phenomenally hard.

You're right though in that right now it's mostly a political thing. You're a newcomer here so the biggest interest in you people have is for your position, and being human.

>>1269179
15 to 1 is a bit of an exaggeration. The point is that if you mobilized the troll side to fight, they could take on the rest of the tribe, or another tribe on their own. Their physicality is nothing to sneeze at, like taking their regeneration into account, they're just fewer in number.

>>1269202
>>1269222
Well that's to the point where if you're already wed. The scorn is against infidelity, if you could actually justify it though reasonably, it could be possible.
>>
I just don't think its beneficial to marry Nera, or the goblins, when we already have good relations with their leader, and can easily win them over hearts and minds without having to marry.

I'd rather marry Hanasvette, then later poison her (we are training goblin poison assassins for a reason right?), and become powerful enough so we can write new rules and laws, and make it so we can fuck who we want.

>>1269224
Tari maybe, but not worst girl "nera".

>>1269228
>What's a "cockgoblin"?
Depends on who you ask, bow chicka bow wow!
>>
>>1269252
>poison her
Oh geez. Dude, I already have a plan to take care of her but even that doesnt include outright murdering her. But no, the poison is not for her.

>Tari maybe, but not worst girl "nera".
Gasp! Nera isn't the worst, you knave!

Anyway, you havent answered my question. You dont seem to have followed the first thread. Your severe lack in knowledge about the characters, how they think, and our plans around each of them implies as much. Would you like me to summarize what we know thus far, free of my own bias?

>I just don't think its beneficial to marry Nera
I dont think so. And Hanasvette will make us a figurehead, which is what OP said himself. On the other hand, the troll shaman is the best choice. But I don't want to power play with something like marriage. Quests are for fun. I', willing to power play for everything BUT something as personal as this.
>>
>>1269252
>15 to 1
Didnt you say that? Or was it 13?
>>
>>1269247
>I already have a plan
Why the hell are the goblins so damn slow?

>>1269252
Also, no, Nera is the best investment. We cannot risk goblins defecting and bringing valuable knowledge of the technology we help them study and construct on their own to enemy tribes.
>>
>>1269270
I breezed through it, not worried about the intricate details. What we do is going to cause large society change anyways, and we plan to reshape it as we see fit. Worrying about that isn't a huge deal when we can influence and change it to suit our needs.

As for the individuals, I see them more as obstacles that should be removed, since they are potential threats to our power and long term survival. So I guess I don't care about them.
>>
>>1269303
>I breezed through it
You might want to rethink that. You're missing a lot of essential facts. OP does a pretty thorough job, which makes this all a lot more difficult. And yes, I do intend to set a system of justice.

>As for the individuals, I see them more as obstacles that should be removed, since they are potential threats to our power and long term survival. So I guess I don't care about them.
I can't do that. Hanasvette is the only thing right now. But I can't do that because I meant what I said when I wanted to help them. And you can't just bull-doze your way through, you need to cover your ass or you'll have some mangy mutt bite you in the ass, hard, and wag its tail as it watches you bleed out.

Also, you're more of an asshole that me. Which is a problem.
>>
>>1269303
>Worrying about that isn't a huge deal when we can influence and change it to suit our needs.
You understand that if we piss them off we're dead, yes? They dont love us. They're merely using us. Im trying to win their actual loyalty.
>>
>>1269347
And this'll start with tribespeople defecting, which will weaken the tribe. And when war comes, which sounds like it happens frequently, though more in the form or raids, we're screwed.

I'm glad that you're not a wuss like most anons on this thread (no offense, anons) but this is foolishness.
>>
>>1269347
Unless you manage to piss off everyone, whichever side accepts you will have reason to keep you alive.

>>1269252
The window for being able to live it up and fool around narrows, since trying to change traditions of the tribe is difficult as you know.

>>1269275
Again that's an exaggeration. Maybe a fully armed and armored warrior troll could take on around 10 maybe. An average troll if fighting for their life could probably do 5.

The point was though that the trolls are the most physically gifted among the tribe, though they aren't warrior sorts by tradition. If made to fight though they would be quite dangerous.
>>
>>1269325
But its okay to get others to do our dirty work? We missed the chance to build our own group slowly over time, and become our own faction outright.

By allowing Hanasvette to legitimize us to the orcs, she holds the orcs loyalty not us, so are dependent on her. We cant really build up our own followers now without interference.

The goblins hold our words and our tongue since we cannot speak the language, so they can dictate what, and how we said no matter what we mean.

The Trolls are like the teachers and educators in a way, with their adherence to traditions and maintaining status quo. This prevents us from reshaping things the way the human woman did to that or tribe that became kangz or w/e., to become a powerful faction in these lands.

Ideally we would have built up merit and reasons to attract some followers, but we avoided the best chance for that when we had it.

Now we are about to be cucked into marriage without knowing what lays beyond our little swampy backwater. Assuming this world even has other continents.

>>1269353
I'm practically begging for a conflict that will cause massive upheaval, like WW1


>Also, you're more of an asshole that me. Which is a problem.
I learn from the best.

>I'm glad that you're not a wuss like most anons on this thread (no offense, anons) but this is foolishness.
The start of the quest with those pussyfooting choices, dear god. But that person probably kept the quest alive so we have a chance to play, so... >.>

Our own faction? Again, read the first thread.

>By allowing Hanasvette to legitimize us to the orcs, she holds the orcs loyalty not us, so are dependent on her. We cant really build up our own followers now without interference.
They trusted her in the first place because she was the wife to the previous chieftain. She's still a chieftess.

>The goblins hold our words and our tongue since we cannot speak the language, so they can dictate what, and how we said no matter what we mean.
Which is why we need goblin loyalty even more. Which is why I also invested time to learn the language, and will continue doing so.

>The Trolls are like the teachers and educators in a way, with their adherence to traditions and maintaining status quo. This prevents us from reshaping things the way the human woman did to that or tribe that became kangz or w/e., to become a powerful faction in these lands.
Not only. They are respected, highly so. They are traditionalists and religious devotees. We are an omen, a prophet who heralds great things to come. We can use this. TRUST me.

>Ideally we would have built up merit and reasons to attract some followers, but we avoided the best chance for that when we had it.
We didn't. I believe the speech did the trick. We have some loyalist orcs, according to OP.

>Now we are about to be cucked into marriage without knowing what lays beyond our little swampy backwater. Assuming this world even has other continents.
Which is why....GOBLINS! And not Hanasvette. Don't be the Harbinger of the War to End All Wars. Be the Messiah of the Mechanical Age. We will rule.

>>1269394
Please no. Im a d-type sadist but no. Also, I like it when they fight back so no submission. Also, I also vanilla, and meant what I said about loyalty to Nera (if we do, but we have two anons already, me included). So no.

>I learn from the best.
Wew lad
>>
>>1269386
A small correction about the trolls that they are big on tradition and faith, but as long as you don't try to break it, they're the most likely to follow you through the thick and thin of things, since from a faith basis you hold a special significance to them. As well just by tradition they're the most loyal as well, without any ongoing effort to secure their support.

The others though you're pretty correct on. The goblins are kind of obsessed with humans and human items/culture, but they're still pretty scheming and exploitative. The orcs are the simplest, it's just the matter of whether you can be able to share power with Hanasvette or anyone else.

>>1269394
Depends on the person?
>>
>>1269414
>without any ongoing effort to secure their support.
One reason not to marry them.

And goblins are highly greedy. Perfect for your ambitions. Goblins are the best choice for our dispositions. Come on, man. Bring on the New Age.

Irrelevant now, but I wanted to build up a following from scratch and ideally either branch off or take over the village, preferable the former.

But we could have attracted some orcs to follow us, they would more loyal directly to us.

I want to learn the language, cut out the middle man, but we could keep them on to make them feel important or something.

>We didn't.
What?
Well unless we have the authority and power to directly order orcs around and see them obey without question, it doesn't feel like we have much "loyalists" orcs. Not even a named NPC to call upon.

I don't want them advancing past iron/medieval age, it gets harder to control them and prevent splinter groups. I feel we can keep the goblins placent with trinkets and circus.

I never cared to speak to any of them directly. We've allocated enough efforts to them at the beginning. We need to get the goblins up now.

>Not even a named NPC to call upon.
Take that up with, OP. lol I wanted something like this but he has a lot of work going on already.

>Well unless we have the authority and power to directly order orcs around and see them obey without question
That'll take time. Im already working on it, boyo. We need to lead (like a strategist and commander) a successful raid on another village for respect from most of the orcs. But soon. I need to deal with what I am doing now first.

>stop bragging.
Im not bragging. :<

Ill shit on them myself. I got this. Trust me.

TARI IS THE WINGWOMAN. And also, you both should have said something before we went through with the Nera Smooch Plan. Now we'll really cause a shitstorm. I want Nera. She's a leader in the tribe.

>>
>>1269517
I didn't forget her you poorly quoted who you were referring to.

It's not impossible that you could just schism off, try to bring some of the tribe with you and make your own group. You would face a lot of hardship though for sure, since everyone around would want to pick on you. Likely you'd have to be nomads since holding down a location for some time, wouldn't be feasible.
>>

We kinda fuked up, Tari is out of the picture now that we kissed Nera

And honestly
I feel like the reward is not worth the risk, even after getting rid of Hanasvette the other two will still try to use us :/ and either of the two will cause the orc people to leave, i say we give up and go for Hanasvette and then mind break her so she can't use us

Op, How long do goblins live for? And what is the fertility window in years for orcs?

>>1269517
Still no Orc wife to marry. Tari will be best girl after Orc girl.

Now that I think about it
There's no reward here, just lesser evils that WILL use us

With Trevor? Hue. Nope.

>I feel like the reward is not worth the risk, even after getting rid of Hanasvette the other two will still try to use us
Two who? Nera seems she does truly like us. She's a little naive like the troll shaman and lacks foresight but I do believe she's the best. And we secure her loyalty via our profession of love and then marriage. Orc Lady does not love us, but she does hold us in high regard for what we have done thus far. She isn't using us in the classic sense. We just fulfill an omen. So let's make that shit happen. That's our intention anyway. And the trolls will follow us for this.

Trade school for more technical stuff like, carpentry or welding.

>>
>>1269633
That doesn't change his reaction. And he took it seriously as well.
>>
>>1269551
Goblins live about half as long as humans, orcs about as long, and trolls twice as long or more. So like humans, orc men can have kids all their life pretty much, orc women till around 50-ish on average.

>>1269558
Nera most definitely would be capable of using you. She was before, your first interaction with her was as her prisoner, being used to sort through junk.

The situation with her is naturally different with Hana, but it's not like Nera isn't clever and scheming, and would love to exploit you. She's just cuter while doing it. Of the three, the trolls seem the least likely to use you, while the orcs like you as a figurehead and the goblins like you as a resource to use.

Naturally any relations can change overtime depending on what you do though.

>>1269618
Nothing at all is stopping you from postponing things, the tribe overall is very understanding of this and are even more ok with it since you're such an outsider. To assist with the process, is why you got offers of doing trial-run relationships, just to make things easier for you.

Complications to this though is the relationship you have with Hana, if she should get pregnant, and of course now the situation with Nera by showing her affection. At the very least if you want to postpone, for the immediate moment you have to do something to settle things with Nera for now.

As for Hana and bearing children, that would certainly cut into her time and effort trying to run things and control the show without you. Though of course at that point, it's obvious that you'd be wed to her.
>>
>>1269646

>>1269659
She probably likes you the most and it is genuine, but that doesn't mean she couldn't still exploit you. Anyone could be truly in love with you, and still use you. It's just that they would use you in different ways. Hana likes her position of power in the tribe, Nera likes your human usefulness.

This is all of course what you can tell, there's things you can't know for sure, or without discussing, and naturally it's all a very complicated business.

>>1269663
Same as you would expect for humans (all the brute-kin, the inhabitants of this land from what you understand, are related to or descended from humans) but adjusted for lifespan. So probably around up to 25 years.

>>1269687
That didn't seem something important to clarify but if you want to you could.

>>1269690
>>1269691
Not as though I am recommending it but for clarity, up until you wed, depending on how you do it you could live as an eligible bachelor.

>>1269680
You can postpone this whole situation as stated, but at least right now if you want to do that, you need to settle the situation with Nera.

>>
>>1269722
We won't. And OP said something very important. As long as we dont piss everyone off, we're good. Think of it like this, Masochist Anon, if we lose orcs, we lose manpower. Only some. If we lose goblins, we risk the leaking of human technology and goblin technological progression under our supervision and guidance to enemy tribes--and our knowledge of human technology is our greatest advantage in this world. We can bomb orcs, wiping them out in the masses Nothing big, but big enough. Or even like grenades, which release shrapnel. Not only that, but showing favor to gobs will reciprocate on itself, causing more goblins to migrate and bolster our workforce.

>>1269152
>>1269727
That's three in total, including me right here, OP. And thank you, Masochist Anon.

>>1269734
No mistresses. :(
>>
>>1269720
I think you might be mistaken in what you think being exploited for your human usefulness means, when originally she kept you confined as a prisoner looking at trash all day.

Also she likes you the most because you've spent the most time with her. That's not giving the other two as much a chance.

>>1269719
More like Tolkien/D&D. They're very big and large.

EEh... yeah, that's not something I want to wake up to every morning.

We normally see orcs dominate goblins but I guess we going for weaker tribe.

Wanted to do a bachelor like dating thing to get to know them better, but seems like we won't.

We can claim its part of our human mating rituals and culture, and that no sex, sleeping, or baby making will occur for the duration of the mating ritual.

>>
>>1269753
Whichever you choose is bound to cause strife among the other two, and prompt a shift in power.

Anyway though, so it seems a sort of general preference is towards Nera. How you go about that is up to you, or if you want to postpone it a little, or try the bachelor thing, or what have you.

The important thing is, what do you do right now? You're face to face with Nera in her office after having kissed, and she's concerned about the situation in relation to Hanasvette. She probably, like most of the tribe, thinks you and the orc are or will be a couple.

Imagine if Hana was best waifu, and you believed everything the goblins translated to you, but turns out they were altering what was said to favor them all along.

Way I see it we can provide our human value and insight to her and tribe even if we get married, while providing greater stability be marrying Hana since that's the only way to stabilize that tribe.

The way the goblins are structured means they can handle a bit of instability and we can help them greatly by helping them sort their trash pile.

It wouldn't be the first time they lied to you about what was being said and what was translated. Anyway,

>>1269777
Anyway, you make your confession towards Nera and answer her concerns, explaining the exploitative situation going on with Hana. Maybe it's not true love, yet, but you feel something for Nera, and could be open to wedding her.

She's obviously surprised but flattered and embarrassed at the same time to think of the two of you together. She thought this was just pushing for maybe a secret affair or friends with benefits thing, but actual marriage even? She'll have to think about it, for many reasons and many concerns, and she even asks why you'd want to be with her? Why a goblin? She's not even sure if you could have a family together, let alone how people might react.

She doesn't refuse though, and after racing around things in her mind, she thinks for now it's best to consider this slowly. She's open to discussion and planning obviously, but maybe not here in her office and before the evening eating time for the tribe? Either way, she shyly tugs at your shirt and looking away while holding her face to try and cover any blushing, she asks for another kiss.

No. I still want to marry Nera. Also, how hard would it be for Troll Shaman to discover we're cheating on her? Not too hard, me thinks. And if she does, HUGE shitstorm.
>>
>>1269855
>WOAH.

Considering how little you've figured out what the non-trolls are accepting of, it's not really surprising.

>>1269854
Anyway so she had some questions for you, but you cut her off by pulling her in for another kiss, this time harder and heavier, and more involved than just with your mouth. When finally you pull apart, she's left panting and clearly hot and bothered, as she clings onto you for support, feeling her heaving little body against you.

Eventually she's able to catch her breath some and recollect herself, as she futilely tries to fix her hair and clothing, trying to change the subject and think about other things. Affirming again that she'll think about it, she says she's got busy work to see about and dinner with important goblin folks, things that need her attention. She suspects you have things to do yourself, so maybe later you can figure this out more?

You could go with her of course, but that might just distract her. Your choice what you do though.
>>
>>1269885
We have things to do as well. We will leave her to her task. Lean in to gently bite her upper lip and promise we'll be seeing each other again tomorrow. Then back away and leave.

>Head to the Troll Shaman, wherever she is
>>
>>1269892
L-lewd

and supporting
>>
>>1269892
You gently bite Nera but she doesn't like this at all and bites you back, drawing blood. Maybe best to just leave for now.

Anyway, you find Tari again and make your way over to the troll side of town together. Along the way you don't have a lot of trouble since while the streets are crowded, everyone is heading to various places for dinner. Crossing your way across the big open central area, it's a lot less populated since there aren't many food vendors here.

You do get prompted though to settle an argument about who would win in a fight, a giant or a cyclops?
>>
Could troll shaman lady use a voodoo ritual to open our mind to this lands language? So long as we have a translator our ability to manipulate our situation is hampered.
>>
>>1269932
>You gently bite Nera but she doesn't like this at all and bites you back, drawing blood.
lol This is why she's cute.

>>1269932
What's the difference between the two, OP?
>>
>>1269934
Maybe one that could help, but you don't think she could just fashion something easily that would give you the ability to speak the language. At least you don't think so.

>>1269936
Giants are bigger by cyclopses are more martially minded.
>>
>>1269942
>Cyclops. But in bed, me.

Now lets go.

Cyclops
DEX beats STR
>>
>>1269949
BUMP IT.
>>
>>1269945
>>1269949
>>1269951
You go with cyclops but some of them think you're dumb.

Anyway you continue on into the troll side of town where you're welcomed by some folks at the front. From them you're able to find where the troll shaman is, she's having a communal dinner as the trolls often do. Heading through the troll part along the wide streets, you get hailed and greeted by families and folks from their houses, inviting you inside to join them, but you've got something to see to.

Eventually you do find the group the shaman is at, and you're greeted warmly and a space is cleared for you to sit among them. You get asked a bunch how your day was and how you're doing, and a bunch of troll children crowd around you to get to see you and ask similar questions of their own.
>>
Why aren't we learning the language before marrying again? Oh right so its easier to be manipulated.
>>
>>1269956
Do the kids know any human games?
>>
>>1269956
I LIKE CHILDREN
>play with children

Tell them about grumbling orcs and goblins jokingly. And maybe play hide and seek if they dont know the game with them if they have places to hide around and they arent that large. Teach them.
>>
>>1269962
They don't, no. You imagine the goblins might, but the trolls aren't that versed with human culture. They troll kids have their own games, but some are similar to human ones.

>>1269961
If no one seems to mind, then you don't have to worry about it! It'll just happen without you knowing.

>>1269964
You greet the children and enjoy their company. Actually going to play with them though isn't exactly viable since everyone is having dinner, the kids are supposed to be too, you just showed up as an interruption.

The troll parents and adults approve of your friendliness to the kids of course, but they wouldn't approve of the kids leaving communal mealtime to go play.
>>
>>1269965
Ah, apologize. Sit back down. Promise they'll be big and strong and all that mainstream crap parents tell you when they want you to eat your damn food.
>>
>>1269970
You sit back down and promise a bright future for the troll kids, which they are quite awed by your optimistic promises. Prompted by their parents though they return to their eating.

You're offered food of course as well, but did you have anything in particular you were looking to do? Or just sit and enjoy the company and the fire. Tari holds close to you, obviously scared of the trolls, particularly the children, larger than she is.
>>
>>1269977
lol Pat Tari. She can sit on our lap like a child if she prefers. I want to speak to the troll shaman. Is she available?
>>
>>1269980
Do you want to speak to her personally? She's right there if you want to talk, otherwise if it's important she can get up. Otherwise though she'd rather wait till everyone is finished with dinner.
>>
>>1269983
We'll wait and enjoy the company until they're done then.
>>
>>1269985
You go on to have a nice dinner with everyone then, Tari helping a lot to translate back and forth. Compared to the hectic goblin side and the pushy orc side of town, it's nice to get just a welcome and peaceful time aside.

Eventually though when the food dwindles, some folks have to get back to their own things, or put the kids to bed. Goodbyes are shared all around, and the shaman sees to some folks with personal requests. Finally though, it's just you and her, and Tari of course by the fire. Occasionally people happen by, but you're basically alone.

She asks what's on your mind, if you need help with anything?
>>
>>1269989
Talk to her about implementing law, a system of order and justice. It will provide guidelines to follow, and punishments for transgressions to prevent crimes from being committed in the first place. We had to settle dispute between goblins and orcs today on land and we feel we couldnt do as much as we could. Neither had substantial evidence for the claim. If we implement this system, it would be easier to resolve problems, or to prevent them from happening in the first place. The tribe could enjoy a little more peace and mutual respect.
>>
>>1269992
You explain the idea of a system of laws for the tribe. She says that already sort of exists but as a social understanding and mostly unspoken. You could have it written out if you like, but many of the tribe can't read or write.

Your faith in such a system is a positive thing to her though, so she's willing to endorse it. She's just confused how you would represent and implement it, and how you would decide what the laws are. Also of course, you should expect a lot of opposition to such notions, but that doesn't mean eventually it couldn't be accepted.
>>
>>1269998
We would think of the laws. Call audience of everyone to announce them of these. For one example, a transaction between two parties on land must require the presence of a troll. This is why we wanted to speak to he beforehand. Trolls are well respected and both just as well as fair. We believe they would be the best witnesses of the transaction because we ourselves cant be everywhere at once. Any transactions done without the witness of an adult troll will not be acknowledged. And another, because orcs so frequently complain about it, fraudulence and theft will require the thief to pay double the amount of what was taken from the offended party to the offended party. These are simply examples, however, and will to undergo revision, trial, error, and revision once more. And not too long ago, deserters also came up as an issue. By default, we would like to make it so that deserters who return may return based on their reason for leaving--and may either be required to suffer some penalty or may re-enter free, like the troll. If it is appropriate, they must work twice as hard as any other goblin, orc, or troll to regain the trust of the tribe. We can change this anytime, of course, and individually deal with each deserter personally. But again, this is only an example.
>>
>>1270004
And also prevent the maltreatment to any slaves or captives.
>>
>>1270004
>>1270006
Call audience at that moment or when you dictate laws? She thinks those are good idea, but at the same time she thinks they will be frowned upon when it's basically the human just handing out laws he decides on to the tribe, whom have had social understandings for ages.
>>
>>1270009
Can she elaborate on some of these social understandings that may interfere with the laws?
>>
>>1270012
It's not an interference it's like, probably the general idea of what your laws are trying to enact, they already have in their social rules and understanding. Either it'll probably be redundant if you try to codify and write out laws for which they all basically already understand, or laws you want to put into place are too far outside traditions and they'll be rejected.

And either way, she thinks it might seem kind of pushy if it's you making these law proclamations, like some of the tribe will think you're getting too high and mighty for yourself.
>>
>>1270016
Can she tell us some of the social rules?
>>
>>1270022
The general ones she can but they're pretty similar to the social contract you're familiar with, things like don't kill, don't steal. It gets a bit most specific though since each race of the tribe has their own versions of these rules, like how honor and force is a big thing for the orcs. She can be specific about the troll ways, but the other two, you'd do better to ask them since she's only vaguely familiar with the way they do things.
>>
>>1270025
And about fraud and scams?
>>

Same thing, that would fall under stealing more or less. It's generally frowned upon, but the goblins are willing to twist things in their favor. They think of taking advantage of people like a learning experience for them. Usually they don't do it to non goblins though because they'll just get beaten or killed in response. Like if they scam an orc, he'll just come back and kill them for it.
>>
>>1270030
lol
Thank her for her advice and support. Take our leave? Do we have time for anything, OP?
Set up the foresight...v-something under our pillow.
>>
>>1270033
You can leave sure, though you don't have to go to bed, it's just after dinner. Some in the settlement turn in for the night, some don't.

At any rate thought you thank her and say your goodbyes and goodnights, she's thankful for your presence and your interest in working on order for the tribe. You take your leave of the troll side then, but on the way out you see a problem taking place where an orc lady is rather angry with one of the troll women. Something about a fight between their children or something like that? Naturally seeing the chief happen by, the orc lady wants you to settle the matter.

From what Tari tells you, the orc child came over to the troll side and caused trouble with the troll child, but the troll mother disciplined the orc child when the orc mother doesn't take kindly to that.
>>
>>1270041
...disciplined how?
>>
>>1270041
Well
The orc kid was asking for it, why did he went over to the troll side to cause trouble where there was none? If anything, the orc kid should be disciplned by his mother for being a troublemaker, the troll woman did nothing wrong.
>>
>>1270046
Hold on. The method is discipline matters here.
>>
>>1270043
A smack. The troll contends a light smack since puny orc weaklings can't handle it, but the orc mom doesn't care about the extent, just that it was done.

>>1270046
The orc mom accepts that her kid was in the wrong too, but that's not why she's here, she's here because of the troll's punishment of her child.
>>
>>1270053
Right, tell the troll woman she can't do that. Unless the orc kid was physically, seriously harming anyone, she has no right to physically punish another woman's child--no matter the measure of the smack or whatever. But also tell the orc mother that she's in fault too. Her kid shouldn't have come here in the first place to cause trouble. She need to supervise her kid better, if she had done that, there wouldnt be a problem in the first place. It's because of her that her kid was punished, so suck it up and lie with it. But it shouldnt happen again, BOTH because she will better supervise her child and because another person has no right to punish someone's child in the stead of the parent him or herself.They're both in fault here, and for different reasons.
>>
>>1270053

That was rightful punishment, she wasn't there to Punish him so Troll mom did the right thing by slapping him and putting him on his place
I c no problem here
>>
>>1270058
They're both at fault.
>>
>>1270057
They're both fine with this judgement, but the orc mom wants to know now what will be done as recompense? She expects you to exact some reward or something from the troll as payment for the issue.
>>
>>1270059
The kid was at fault, and so was the mother for not being there, and disciplining the child, and a stranger had to do it.
>>
>>1270061
Compensation?
How bout let the troll and orc kids work for her for a day or half a day?

Also, why didnt you guys dom the chieftess after we let her to thirsts?
I was slapping myself for not joining that day
>>
>>1270061
No, like we said, it was her fault this happened in the first place.
>>1270057
>It's because of her that her kid was punished, so suck it up and lie with it.
It is harsh but it is true. And let this be a lesson to the boy as well. This is honor. To admit your mistakes, to take your punishment, and to learn from it. That will make you stronger. That will make HIM stronger. For the troll to compensate now would only shadow the punishement--to deem it a mere accident to be forgotten. And he will repeat what he had done once more. So we will not. And from here, she must properly guide her son. Curiosity is an omen for greatness in our culture. We have no doubt he will become a fine man once grown. Tell her to see to it that this happens.
>>
>>1270064
You have your people flipped, man.

>>1270064
As for Hanasvette, OP made us pass out or something.

>>1270064
Have the troll kid work for the orc mom for a day? She's pleased by this arrangement, and though the troll mother is a little concerned, and she would rather work the day in the place of her child, who she thinks is the only one truly innocent here. The orc mom is fine with this arrangement as well, if you judge it so.

But I'll be sure to ask next time. Thanks, OP.

If you rule against it the orc mom will be upset. Also they kind of always act like this, but they feel assured since you're chief.

Also I responded to the first guy to respond. If more than one person wants to go back on it though, that can happen.
>>

Well both were exhausted, but the option was still there to do anything, which was taken to go to sleep together.

Night, OP. I need my 3 hours of sleep.

It will be demeaning to the trolls, to have an adult be made to do manual labor like that. Its best to have the kid do some minor restitution while the toll mother watches to make sure her kids not abused.

Afterwards, encourage the orc mother to cook good food for the both of them as guests when its dinner time before they go home.
>>
>>1270103
The woman already offered to do it in the kids stead.

Also, make sure you guys set the venne or venna or however its spelled underneath our pillow, on the pillow before we sleep

Quick, now is everyone's chance to ruin this guy's plans.

>>1270103
The troll working though is what the troll mother wants. You suggested the kid, but she wanted to work instead of her child.

If you affirm that it has to be the kid though, then she'll accept to it.

So what are you doing now? It's early night, not yet late. You can head home if you like but there's time to do something else if you like. You took care of the dispute between the mothers though, which is good.
>>
The Orc kid went to the troll side to cause trouble when he shouldn't have, and got disciplined by the Troll mother for messing with his kid.

The kid should be punish for not only causing trouble in the first place, but going over to the troll side to do it.

The issue was that someone else punishing a kid that is not their own is frowned upon.

This can go either way. The mother of the orc kid can be reprimanded for not doing a better job parenting and making it so someone else had to discipline, which can shame her.

The other is to punish or put penalty on the Troll mother for disciplining not only a child that was not hers, but one from a different race, which is the responsibility of that the offenders parents.

I would prefer a middle ground, were the troll gives something of a consolation prize to the orc mother, while not taking much from the troll mother.

An idea that may work is if the troll mother works for from perhaps afternoon to dinner time doing some labor for the orc mother, while the orc mother makes a meal for the troll as thanks before she leaves. This would be the best outcome as we can hopefully set a positive relation between these 2 families.

Part of the plan hinges on the Orc mother going along, maybe if we burn some good will in order to get it done.
>>
>>1270115
Let her do some honest days labor, and nothing demeaning like picking up trash and washing undergarments.
>>
>>1270115
Try to get each side to start building proper town, by forming a council for city planning. Or just go home and sleep.
>>
>>1270115
Actually lets focus on learning the orc language.
>>
>>1270116
>>1270119
The orc mom was fine with any sort of submission shown like that, working for her or whatever. And the troll makes sure that if the work is demeaning, she won't be doing it.

>>1270122
Forming a city council and planning might be a bit much for tonight, but it's definitely something you can work towards.

So making a note of it in your notebook, you then head back to the longhouse, as usual being told goodnight and such by orc passerbys on the way. When you get to the longhouse though, you see the main hall still decently busy. Hana though hearing from a servant that you're back, makes her way over and greets you with a pretty deep kiss and putting your arms around her, asking by translation how your day was and whatnot.

Things are active enough though you can tell, that if you want to try learning more of the language you can. If so, make a roll to see how well you fare.
>>
Rolled 8 (1d20)

>>1270128

>>
>>1270129
Sure. With an 8 you pick up some more words and a little understanding, having joined Hana in the main hall and with Tari's help coming to try to better understand the language with folks present there at the time.

You go for awhile and make good progress, but now it's getting kind of late. Hana is interested in going to bed together, but is willing to wait up if you still have something in mind. In the main hall at least, people are starting to thin out though, or have dozed off there.
>>
>>1270133
Go out to meet some of the troll village shamans, look for some prophylactics against wimpy wood.
>>
>>1270137
It's a bit late now to be heading out, but you can try if you like, go ahead and make a roll to your success about finding someone with what you're interested in.

If the concern is about Trevor's "performance" though, that's never been an issue for him.
>>

>>

You tell Hana you have one last thing to take care of but you'll be back in a little bit, she can wait up till then. At that, you grab Tari who shrieks and you run off with her under your arm.

Over to the troll side of town though, you don't have much luck finding what you're looking for, any sort of shaman types around this late. There's always the head shaman lady you're on good terms with, but going to her about this might be a bit much.

If you want though, while here in the troll side, you could try asking around to anyone who is still up, if the might know a way to find what you're looking for. Not explicitly state it, but get the point across.
>>
>>1270146
Go for a run to get the adrenaline up, the head back.
>>
>>1270151
So without being able to find what you were looking for, instead you just settle for normal. Just to get in the spirit of things at least though, you go for a run around the settlement to get your adrenaline going and your blood pumping. Eventually you return before bidding Tari goodnight.

After that it's a short trip to your room at the back of the longhouse, where you arrive. A little tired out from the run, but still active and feeling ready to get things done. Hana is surprised to see you like this, thinking you were going to take care of an errand or something, not expecting you to come back after what she guesses a workout or something like that. She seems a mix of happy and conciliatory, moving your sweaty hair back and feeling your heavy breathing with a hand to your chest. Quite pleased with a kiss and a smile, she wants you to bed if you're willing. Not that you have to though, you did wear yourselves out at it this morning/last night. Your call to make.
>>
>>1270161
Slow and sensual.

So you both are on the same page and don't waste any time getting into it. Again you outperform and make it good for her, though your goal of pounding her into submission doesn't really work. You're able to get her to try something new and dominate her, but it's something she allows rather than you taking. Still though you both enjoy yourselves and feel good with it, likely having kept neighboring rooms awake with your noise making. Lying together in the afterglow against her big green form, you're both worn out, sweaty and messy. You share a nice, close moment together between kissing and going over a bit of the other language from what you learned from her.

If there was anything else you wanted to do you could, but you're just as content to fall asleep together.

Good job.

Anyway so you awaken the next day by the usual routine of the servants coming in for the morning duties, but Hana sends them off again for a morning in together. She seems a bit annoyed by their intrusion as it were, speaking some cross words, before shifting focus to you, speaking softly and acting quite amorous towards you.

You can of course act as you please but she's content to stay in bed for awhile and relax.

>81

Improve your grasp of the language. Which you do, together with Hana you are able to go over a number of words and practice what you know. It's not a lot, your understanding of the language, but you know it well.

So unless you have anything else in mind, Hana is willing to have the servants set things up for the morning routine. Breakfast, getting clean, all of that, in preparation for the day.
>>
>>1271875
Yes. Proceed.
>>
>>1271877
It's business as usual then, as eventually you decide to get up together after the servants bring in breakfast and fill the tub. Over the course of eating and bathing together, you continue to practice and pick up words, at least a little confident of your success.

Once you're dressed and ready to go, you express that you've got things to do so you lovingly part ways with Hana who likely has her own matters to attend to. After that, leaving the longhouse you're able to find Tari again and head on over to the goblin side of town.

The question is, are you going to let Nera know of your activity, as your apology for yesterday or are you just going to dig through the trash and she can find out later, especially if you find anything?
>>
>>1271928
I suppose have some nice things to present to her before going, like sort half the pile. Hide the best goodies before we go to her, and present it at the same time.

Anything you will find won't be in great condition, but maybe you could find those things. Not like a whole vehicle, just due to the size. The rusty old truck is about the maximum extent of what you could find in any tribe's trash pile.

Ok yeah you can find some decent amount of usable scrap metal, and some gasoline in a rusty can.

So having made your way into the goblin side of town, you're approved access to their trash heap where you rummage around for these things. After awhile and with some help of workers there, you manage to uncover the items you were seeking, feeling pretty accomplished but dirty. You feel like getting some fresh air, while the workers ask what the deal with the gas is, and if you'd like them to put aside any they find rather than turning it over to one of the guilds?
>>
>>1272102
Put any aside for now. No guild neither knows how to nor is able to use it yet.
>>
Does the Town have a furnace?
>>
>>1272120
I assumed they already have said weaponry. They just dont have the ore to smelt/chisel and equip everyone. I've already asked. I also proposed we move but then OP told me that the neighboring tribes would attack us.
>>
>>1272126
I thought they just used scrap metal they found to grind into sharp points.
>>
>>1272115
Some of the guilds use gas for chemical purposes though, same as other substances that get found from the human world.

>>1272120
>>1272126
The settlement does indeed have some furnaces around, though usually the problem is that not enough decent scrap is found to warrant smelting in any large amounts. Still, the facilities and skill are available if you seek them.
>>
>>1272141
Keep it aside. If they want gasoline, come and ask us directly for permission.
>>
>>1272149
Alright then, if they find any more of the gas substance, they will keep hold of it unless you give the permission, or if Nera says so since she has higher authority than you.

What's on your to do list now then? As you sit outside the walled trash heap compound, you start to attract a crowd of goblins around, interested to see what you're doing here and requesting things of you like to hold their baby or to give them food.
>>
>>1272230
BABIES

Do we have food? Does the tribe suffer from hunger? We should fix that.

And did we find any of the weaponry I requested?
>>
>>1272246
On you? No you don't have food on you. The tribe gets by, since the source of food income is from raiding. Overall you wouldn't say people are hungry, but obviously the ones asking you are hungry. In the same way that the ones asking you for help are maimed, like missing an arm and asking for work or assistance.

No weaponry that you sought after, at least not with the roll that was gotten. For anything that dangerous, you'd need a very good roll.
>>
A map would be nice, so we can understand the terrain better.

Ask them to show you where they forage for fruits or vegetables, so we can collect seeds. We make a farm to grow food for the village.

We will make a communal soup kitchen where every day everyone can revive one bowl of soupy foodstuff.
>>

>you'd need a very good roll.
Not anytime soon. I swear I'm cursed. But maybe the other anons can.

>asking you for help are maimed, like missing an arm and asking for work or assistance.
WHAT?

Can we make a garbage recovery group? Like sort all the items in the dump by certain characteristics?
>>
>>1272309
OP said they prefer raiding for food than working for it. But I would also like to domesticate plants for the tribe. Perhaps we could ask the trolls to do this as this sounds more like their activity.
>>
>>1272316
The plan is to get the weak and maimed to work for food, since they sure as heck can't raid for it.

Well, there are slaves if that plan fails too right?

I'm sure some of the trolls, and a few who don't want to risk the dangers of raiding, but want to eat will learn to farm, few as they may be.
>>
>>1272330
>Well, there are slaves if that plan fails too right?
No.

>I'm sure some of the trolls, and a few who don't want to risk the dangers of raiding, but want to eat will learn to farm, few as they may be.
They prefer peace. Hence, I want to have them farm. It'll also bring them closer to their loa.

>The plan is to get the weak and maimed to work for food, since they sure as heck can't raid for it.
The plan is to get the hungry to work with the trolls to farm. The labor for the trolls, the more deft activities for the goblins. They will make an effective team.

The plan is also to have those who are maimed to salvage and organize objects in the dump because you can't effectively farm with one arm.
>>
>>1272311
It would take a bit of training, maybe some examples to work by, but you suppose that you could organize some trash collecting effort, yes. It may take awhile to get going though.

>>1272316
>>1272330
>>1272309
It's less that the tribe can't farm and more that whenever there's any effort to, it usually gets destroyed by raiding, same as efforts by other tribes. In general projects that benefit communities like that, don't tend to fare well here, so for food, most everyone in the area just raids ogre farms in the area for their food and goods. Naturally this usually results in deaths, but people don't mind if it means being able to eat.

Defensive wouldn't be hard. Good farmland though is rare in these parts since it's mostly swamplands and bayou. If the effort is put into it, it could be good, but as you know the effort usually amounts to nothing.

>>1272371
From what you understand they are not stupid or anything but they tend to be stubborn and hostile to outsiders. Particularly so since the other brute-kin are always raiding them for food.
>>
>>1272389
No, orcs will refuse. That much is obvious from their behavior, values, and professions. We don't have that authority from them and we don't have that kind of respect from them. Don't be a fool. They are warmongers by nature and practice. They find honor in battle and in feats of strength. This is why I asked you to read the thread. Everyone in the tribe has a role. The orcs have theirs in combat. Why would you remove them from a station they excel at for this?

Trolls are fairly docile, going about their lives. They have time, the patience, and the spiritual relationship to farm. Goblins scavenge for crawfish. That'll only feed themselves. Those things are feebly small. So have them farm instead.

Black lastly is supposedly a bad or evil voodoo practitioner out in the bayou somewhere.

>>1272400
The orcs could probably be impressed upon to farm, but not until they saw actual benefits and gains, which you wouldn't get while the constant raiding and warring goes on, and the orcs need to fight.
>>
>>1272396
We can offer to collaborate with an ogre/the ogres and live with them. In exchange for giving us less food than tribes raid the for in total, we will stop raid parties from stealing their food. It's a mutual benefit. Of course, we also expect the ogre/ogres to aid us in battle if need be. It's just that we'll be taking care of those they miss.

Exactly. Now's not the time. If there is war, that is what they will prefer. Supply and demand. If there isn't war, they wont request it. They'll begin to drift off and find other things to do. That's when we propose farming. And the orcs DO need to fight. We are surrounded by tribes that will not hesitate to attack us.

Its not like we are telling them to go prance around a circle wearing girl clothes. We are just seeing if we can get any willing bodies to farm. Its not like we are even remotely in a position to go Genghis khan on anyone, we haven't even sacked a village yet.

Dude, we just came into this tribe. They've been raiding and sacking for a LONG time now.

If you're just "seeing" then what's the point? You're wasting our time and theirs.

>You gonna cry about reading the thread when anyone doesn't agree with you? Fuck off.
No, Im going to cry about you not reading the thread everytime you spew crap about forcing everyone to do things without any consideration of what we are and how we stand with them. And a good leader knows how to allocate an individual to his or her best task with relation to what the collective needs. You act as if goblins can swing an axe as well as an orc. They each have their strengths and weaknesses, learn to capitalize on this. You're being highly self-centered and ignorant. I'm not being a spoiled little prick, I'm an anon who wants to do this well. Which is why I still waste my time on explaining why Im doing things and why we shouldnt do certain things to you instead of solely referring to read the thread.

After giants they're the most human-looking from what Tari says, but they're more grotesque. A bit bigger than an average troll usually but much fatter since they tend to eat so much. They also speak the human language, and embrace human culture, though it's kind of their own thing since they don't get access to anything coming to this land from the human world, like the goblins do.

Pic related turns out to be an actual character, but it's a good approximation at any rate. Think more feudal peasant style though, rather than nomadic or primitive.

>"DIDN'T READ YOU DON'T GET A SAY".
You can say anything. But most of it will be misinformed and frankly, idiotic, if you dont have the background information. This much is common sense.

I never asked to argue (but I do like a intellectual argument). I've already said I want to do this well, as effectively and efficiently as we can while still having it be fun. I have no qualms if you guys want to do something different than what I have in mind. I only ask that you provide reason for it, and at least try to convince me (which is not easy, admittedly, I think before I make most decisions). What I'm asking for is not a butt hurt anon (you) but a chance to share knowledge and perspectives and make this quest a little more fun. Sure, I may come off as condescending, but I find a lot of things others do stupid. And if my opinion that its stupid is misplaced, I expect the person to explain why it isnt. I completely open to it and welcome to being wrong.

>>1272503

If you want to go see an ogre you'll have to make a case to convince someone to take you since unless it's a raid, folks of the tribe don't like approaching them.

Basically, what sort of group if any, do you want to assemble for your outing to one of the farms?
>>
>>1272530
Just Tari and the Troll Shaman? No orcs because we dont want to convince the ogre that we're here to steal food before he/she squashes us. Tari because she's always with us, within the tribe or otherwise (though I worried about her being frightened) and the troll shaman because she is wise and I believe the assets (including voodoo) she controls will aid us greatly.

Tari doesn't want to go but will if you need her to. The troll shaman though is willing to go to keep you safe if need be. You also convince a number of orcs to go, interested in your idea. And if it fails, they can just raid the place.

Before then though, before you head out with the assembled group, do you want to make any lunching plans for the midday? Naturally everyone will want to eat before going, so you could do so together as the group, or someplace else if you had some idea or plans.

That wasn't a roll for the ogre, just along the way. So the group of you leave the settlement behind and head through the woody swamplands on the way to the nearest farm. It's all unfamiliar to you, but there are trails here and there which indicate that folks of the tribe come this way pretty regularly.

It's quite a long trek for sure though, several hours at least and when you reach the edge of the cleared land that is the farm, it's late in the day. There it lies before you though, quite a decently sized walled farmstead with a big house to match. From the land alone you'd think it enough to feed the tribe a few times over. In the distance smoke curls up from the chimney of the big house, so you'd guess the ogre to be inside. Just a guess though.

How would you like to proceed? Also roll an unrelated d2.

At first you decide not to approach in force, and have most of the group waiting in hiding just outside the farm, ready to attack and raid if things go badly.

So you approach With Tari and Yula, ignoring the warning signs to stay away. Heading down the little road to the house, it travels between the fields which you can tell are well tended to. You're also hit with the smell of farm animals as you near the house, but before you can see just what they are, the barking of dogs is heard, and soon there's movement around in the house.

Moments later and the door slams open, as what you'd guess by the appearance to be an ogre lady, comes stomping down the big stairs with a half-eaten pig's leg in one hand and a nasty looking club that you'd know could kill you in one swing. She's dressed in pretty simple clothes but they aren't coddled together from found human items, it looks like her clothes were made, and decently well by the look of it.

Initially she seems content to cross the yard and kill the lot of you, and gets about halfway to doing so, but when she sees you she slows to a stop, still scowling and clearly angry. She asks if this is a trick, if they painted a hobgoblin up to look like a human?

She barely understands the vocabulary you're using, but gets the general idea. While she doesn't seem that interested, she also doesn't take offense. She says she hasn't eaten a human in a long time, and wouldn't mind giving it a try if you didn't measure up to your boasting. It would be a one way street in either case though, either you do and stay here, or don't and she cooks you living and eats you.

At any rate though, she seems convinced by your display, and speaking English that this isn't a ruse, and she asks you what you're doing with those monsters. If you really are chief, you must be some kind of monster yourself to be able to win their devotion.

As for the deal, she thinks it's a trick really, and asks where the others are hiding, expecting a raid.

Confess that they are hiding, but only for their safety. A portion of our population is hungry, and we require them to WORK for their own food.

While she does like not being raided for her goods, she also naturally doesn't trust any of the people of your tribe, since they've been raiding her and her family for generations.

The idea you're proposing she thinks is appealing, on a basic level no more raiding is nice. However she can't make an arrangement like that, willingly giving you supplies, when she'd still be raided by other tribes. And that, the others raiding her farm, she doesn't believe at all you can stop.
>>
>>1273169
You complain about our generation then do this.

>>1273171
Say she would help to an extent, helping fight off some occasionally. In exchange, we live with her, we help her maintain her farmland, and we will fend off raiders. Her part consists of only providing us with a much smaller fraction of meat and crops that the other tribes would steal mounds more of for free. And even if we can't stop all the tribes, we can still stop ENOUGH to make sure that the crops and cattle lost and that of which she pays us with for her services will NOT be more than if she didnt accept our deal and if we didnt help her stop at least MOST of the raids.

So to try and calm the situation down, you send away Tari and Yula, and tell them to keep back with the others. Tari hopes you know what you're doing, and that you'll be dead meat if she wants to harm you.

The ogress calms down some at the departure of the troll and the goblin, and moves across her yard to sit on a big stump out of the ground, to listen to what else you have to say. You make a very convincing argument though which she can't help but agree with as long as there aren't any of your tribe actually living with her.

She would prefer though, in order to stop the raiding, that you make the other tribes stop yourself, or at most just drive them away, destroy them if you have to. She knows the other ogres would support this.

However you are convincing enough that she'll agree to whatever you suggest.

You can try if you want, you'll have to roll to convince though, providing a reason good enough.

>>1273344
She says she can't speak for the other ogres, but she thinks you could try to convince them. If you get enough interested then the rest would be too, and they'd work towards a common goal of stopping the raiding of their farms.
>>
>>1273373
We would be glad to. Tell her, for the time being, if we could remain with her. We will begin to speak to the ogres as soon as possible. Also ask if she knows where the other ogres are and if she can vouch for us.
>>
>>1273584
Or would she rather still lend us food AS we try to rally the orcs and finally, when ready, crush the tribes that raid them? Itll be like a payment in advance and while we work towards that goal but with no immediate results on our part just yet.
>>
>>1273584
>>1274417
Ask which one she would prefer.
1. Live with her and get to work immediately for her farm and for a goal to eliminate raiding tribes
Or
2. Dont live with her but she still pays us crops and cattle with the express goal to eliminate the raiding tribes--as soon as we can, as quick as we can.
>>
>>1274475
With a 98 you're basically able to convince her of pretty much any arrangement. So she'll do whatever you think is the best. The only thing is, that in time if the problems continue, and the deal doesn't work for her, she'll be angry about it and feel like she was tricked.

As for the other ogres, she can at least show you where they are (though you already know that) and give you something so that one of the others, her cousin, doesn't attack you on sight. She's not keen though on leaving her farm to go and introduce you or anything to the others.

Sure thing, she says she can give you something of hers that you can take with you, and should help you meet with her cousin. However, it won't help with the other ogres if you go to see them.

If you want to accomplish anything else you can, otherwise she'll fetch the item and you can be on your way.
>>
>>1276771
Ask her what her name is (simply because you think of good names and I want to see more of them)

Then yes, let's be on our way. What time is it, by the way? Do we have enough time for her cousin?
>>
>>1276782
Her name is Grumelda.

It's about sunset now, you could try and reach her cousin but it would be nightfall by then, and the other from what you understand don't like traveling at night.
>>
>>1276804
Makes sense. Let's head back then. As we do, ask Tari and Yulamille what they think of this deal and how they see it affectong tribe life in the future.
>>
>>1276820
You can try and head back to the settlement, but again the group, or anyone really, don't like night travel. If you don't care though you can press them on. Otherwise they would want to find a place to spend the night.

As for talking to Tari and Yula, they think is a risky business and aren't sure if it is even possible, but if it could work, they think it would definitely be positive for the tribe.

So you and the group are able to find a decent place to camp out for the night, a large divet through the woods, partially flooded. Some of the group take to picking places to sleep and fighting over them, while others get a fire going. There's one hunter along with you all, who goes out in the hopes of getting something in the night.

If there's anything you want to do in particular or any precautions you want to take you can, but Tari says everyone will probably be up for an hour or two, maybe more if something good for dinner is gotten. If not then everyone will go to bed grumbling.

Yula and the other troll you notice are just eating wood. Apparently trolls can eat almost anything, Tari explains.

Sure thing, it takes some effort for awhile, especially since members of the group keep walking around and destroying your work. Eventually though you do manage to draw some thin rope across various parts of the area and attach bits and bobs which would make noise if crossed. Eventually Yula sees and understands what you're doing and thought it would have been easier for her just to put a curse on the area, but your way is good too.

Aside of dinner if there is any (my roll) is there anything you'd care to do then? You'd probably have an hour or two to do as you like.

Bruh. Well here's your roll, OP.
>>
>>1277328
Well considering the previous chief had himself a warrior lady to spend time with when out raiding/fighting or away from the settlement, and that seems to be a normal thing for the orcs, just cuddling with Tari is perfectly tame by comparison.

Though how she feels about it, depends how you go about it.

>>1277320
That's fully possible, but who would you be looking to raid? I assume the idea is to drum up effort for something tomorrow.

>That's fully possible, but who would you be looking to raid? I assume the idea is to drum up effort for something tomorrow.'
That's not what he meant, OP. Read the spoilers lol. I thought the roll was for learning language. Am I mistaken, purple anon?

>>1277351
Im concerned about what Yulamille thinks about it, not the orcs.
>>
>>1277365
Why do you care what she thinks? You're not trying to charm or marry her or anything.
>>
>>1277351

More to take the steam out of their engines so they don't cause any muck ups in the next meeting.

More compliance out of them with a bit of social reputation boost.
>>
>>1277367
Diplomacy. I think it's best if who we lead approves of our actions. I'm mostly concerned with goblin and troll opinion above most. Orcs don't concern me too much but it would be great to earn their respect when it comes to war. Otherwise, I suppose it helps that their significantly lax with mores and norms.

>>1277373
You want to raid someone?
>>
>>1277365

Yeah that whole thing was a joke, I do however approve of language learning.
>>
>>1277376
As good terms as you could possibly be though, there's a certain limit that you won't be able to pass, if that race of the tribe doesn't have your favor.

So unless you do something terribly egregious, you're probably not going to offend Yula enough that it would impact troll relations. Personally she might think less of you, but she's not all the trolls.
>>
>>1277394
But Yulamille is the troll we communicate with by far the most, yes? Wouldn't it be best to keep the best terms as possible with her?
>>
>>1277401
That's your personal choice, and if you like her as a friend and all. If she's just disapproving of you, as she was the last chief, it wouldn't impact troll relations that much.

That's not giving the green light to go ahead and do anything, just that she was disapproving but still fully cooperative and supportive of the previous chief, so you're on a level of comparison to him and from what you know he wasn't some paragon of virtue
>>
>>1277405
Best to stay safe then. She wouldn't understand the ascendancy of sleeping with a bunch of cats or modest-sized cute animals. Neither do I, but really? That sounds pretty damn good.
>>
>>1277417
So any effort to drum up support for a raid tomorrow or just turning in for the night?
>>

Good way to rally all enemies in a mile radius. Other than the fire, of course.

But no, OP. We want to learn language.

With not much else to do, and a bunch of folks gathered around, you take to practicing the language more. With as many people, the learning goes by much better and more helpful, enough that Tari has a hard time keeping up with it all.

After about two hours of listening into the communal conversation around the fire over dinner, and back and forth getting explained and taught words and phrases, you come out with a greatly improved understanding of the language they all use.

After that, it's pretty late by normal standards so folks start to head to bed or doze off, some staying up to keep guard if they can, others looking to get an early night, some taking the chance to get frisky with one another. You're not too tired, but you don't want to be waking up late tomorrow or drag anyone down by being exhausted.

You're able to replicate the veve Yula taught you, but while you get a good night's rest, you don't get much benefit from it. At any rate, you awake the next day with folks grumbling about not having anything to eat, since the lone hunter couldn't get anything good.

So the group is either in a raiding mood or a returning home mood. Except for the two trolls that is, who just eat dirt and grass and the like.
>>
>>1277525
Let's do a small raid. Then move on to the cousin. Also, OP, why do we have so little time each day?

You have so little time because the shit you do takes so much time.

Of a static location, the ogres are the closest, then the giant, then the southern neighboring tribe but that's pretty far away.

You could try roaming though and see if you encounter any nomads, or just wandering bands similar to yours. If you want to do that, go ahead and make a roll.

Not much but not nothing. After everyone getting up and ready to go, the lot of you wander around the area for awhile, splitting up into groups to cover more ground and scout. Eventually one group does come across a band of nomads, and in about half an hour the group is reassembled and gathered some distance from the nomads. They don't seem aware of you, so you would have the initial jump on them.

From what you can see, it looks to be maybe two orc families, maybe three goblin families, and two trolls. It looks like they might be moving since they do have some goods with them, naturally the trolls carrying.

You approach with the group who are not in a patient mood, but for now hold off on attacking. The nomads are obviously worried at first, but surprised enough when they see your group approaching through the trees and grasses, rather than rushing in to attack. Most of all though they're obviously shocked by seeing a human among the group.

At any rate you talk to them, some of the goblins being able to translate to the rest of the nomads, about being peaceful and offering them to come live with you. Naturally while your words are nice, the group of orcs with you, laughing and grinning pretty wickedly about what's to come, make a bigger statement than your words. So against their better judgement it seems, they accept your offer rather than the alternative of being raided. There's some uneasy goodwill all around as your group and the nomads meet and greet then, greetings appropriate among the races, and you get a lot of attention for being human. All the while, your group politely but with force break into the goods they have for food.

Well, a late breakfast for all, you suppose! Care to do anything then while or after eating? For now it seems the nomads are willing to stick with you and join your tribe. If that pans out in the end remains to be seen, but they're trusting you on your word, or at least they accept it rather than being raided.
>>
>>1277624
Right. So for now, tell them we were actually on our way to visit an ogre. Let's go meet Grumelda's cousin.
>>
>>1277635
Ok so which ogre's farm do you want to head to, based on the map? Grumelda's is the one closest to your tribe's settlement? She told you how to recognize her cousin's farm, but not which one it was since her sense of orientation of the area was different from yours anyway.
>>
>>1277656
The closest other farm to hers.
I can't read your map. I need a legend/key.
>>
>>1277658
There is one in the following post, but ok the closest.

So you travel along with the nomads now with you, who are not too happy about the idea of going to an ogre farm, but they feel better when they find out you're the one dealing with everything.

So after a couple hours you all reach the place, like Grumulda's a cleared area of the woods given room to build a walled farmstead. This time since it's in the late morning, you actually see the ogre working out in their field, a male one from what you can tell. This isn't Grumulda's cousin though, so how would you want to proceed?
>>
>>1277669
Proceed alone. With the tribe folk waiting patiently.
Call out to the ogre when we are in hearing range so as not to alarm him or give the false impression that we intend to steal from him. Other than that, be as diplomatic and respectful, of course.
>>
>>1277669
>>1277675
Tell them NOT to raid, not to touch anything of the ogre's property. It's best if they stay in sight as well. But remain where they are.
>>
>>1277675
>>1277678
So you want to tell them to wait back, ideally off the property and not to raid, while you approach on your own, intending to negociate?
>>
>>1277687
Yes. Maybe bring Tari along. Is she okay with that? Id she's too afraid, let her stay.
>>
>>1277695
Actually, no Tari.
>>
>>1277695
She is very afraid, yes. Yula though offers to keep hold of her till you get back.

So you head out of the woods and over to the farm. As you go past the walls and enter on to the property you hear the usual dogs barking, and on your approach the ogre eventually becomes aware of you. An older looking fellow, quite tough and weathered from time and work. You think to call out to him at a distance and try to talk about the situation and why you're here. Pretty much the moment he sees you though, he hurls a rock at you and hits you hard, knocking you off your feet and causing you to see stars. Trying to regain your senses, you soon hear a big thumping and feel yourself grabbed suddenly by the ogre. The shock of the hit from the rock is starting to fade by now, but it seems he's looking you over, studying you closely.

You hear him mention something about you being an actual human and some surprise from him, before he drags you off towards his house. Of course you struggle but he's far too strong and when you nearly evade his grasp, he just swings you into the ground, stunning you again and dragging you dazed. Standing near the front, he calls out to the house and yells about something, whereafter more loud thumping and the front door is thrown open, where you see a younger ogress staring at you in disbelief, but covering her mouth in delight as she quickly approaches and grabs you from the ogre, lifting you in the air and sounding thankful by the tone of her voice. The ringing in your ears from being slammed into the ground continues, but you can sort of make out something about dinner.
>>
>>1277704
I KNEW IT.

Alright, hold up. Tell them to let us talk first, damn it, we came here to propose a deal. We've already spoken to Grumulda

Waaait. It's not like they could do anything anyway. They would be crushed. And I asked to go alone precisely to avoid THEM dying. Because, you know, we have plot armor. ANd it's easier to handle things like life and death situations when we're alone.
>>
>>1277712
>Plot armor

But im supporting your action eitherway
>>
>>1277714
Well what happens when we die? The quest ends, yes? But regardless, that was never my primary reason. My primary reason was the 2nd I mentioned. I suspected that we'd be treated as dinner first (Jack and the Beanstalk, if you know the story) and so I didn't want to leave the other susceptible to danger. But we still recruit them. So to go alone was my decision.
>>
>>1277710
You're well within the property by now, you doubt they'd be able to hear you.

>>1277712
As the ogre stomps off back to his fields, you shout about Grumulda and hope that helps. The ogre hears the name but just laughs, and you hear something about it being her loss she didn't eat you.

So before long you're left with the ogress as she drags you inside like a naughty child, seeming very happy and singing about something to do with the woods or something. Either way she pulls you through the house, admittedly very comfy and rustic looking, very warm and welcoming, to what you soon realize to be the kitchen. You keep trying to talk or explain but she doesn't seem that interested, and eventually hoists you up and throws you into a cookpot. An empty one, but it's obviously a very foreboding turn of events.

Trying to climb your way up or out, she pushes you down any time you try, but you get glimpses of her cutting vegetables and shredding some herbs. Eventually while preparing the food, she does speak aside to you though doesn't stop what she's doing or take her attention from it, asking you what brings a human by Grumulda's farm, let alone theirs? She sounds a little nervous and curious, admitting she's never seen a human before, so you'll have to forgive if she makes a fool of herself.

>>1277712

>>
>>1277726
Tell her it's fine. She's only the third ogre we've met thus far so we're almost on equal terms.

Then tell her we're here to request the cooperation of the ogres in order to crush the neighboring tribes, stopping raids on ogre farmland as per a deal we made with Grumulda.
>>
>>1277726
>I should kill Trevor right now just for you even suggesting that.
Trevor wouldn't appreciate that.
>>
>>1277734
She listens intently and looks wide eyed at you with interest, taking in the sight and behavior of a human. You talk about your plan and she offhandedly mentions that it's a good idea and her father would probably support it. More than that though, he wants human for dinner and she's to cook you to serve up, admitting she looks forward to getting to eat you as well. Imagine, something she's never tasted before, it's simply amazing!

Dismissing all those superfluous things for now though, she sets down the vegetables and such for now, cleaning her hands with her apron and approaching you. She seems very interested to know more about you and the human worlds, clearly that's a bigger importance to her than any sort of deals about stopping raiding or whatever.
>>
>>1277742
Uh tell her about how we became chieftain here and how our world is filled with steel dwellings that kiss the clouds, taller than ogres or giants, and human cuisine that includes what she grows on the farm or the animals she and her father take care of. So, you know, she's more eager to eat that than us. Also, we taste like chicken, only softer and soggy with our build. Not very edible. Maybe tell her about the billions of humans that live in our world and how we can cover thousands of miles on flying behemoths sired by human labor, technological ingenuity, and the very same resources the races of this world can find in their earth.
>>
>>1277750
You go on at length about yourself and where you come from, leading to some gasps and even laughs at your stories. After awhile she's very enamored with you, saying how you sure can make up some incredible lies, but she loves them all and thinks it a shame to have to eat you in the end anyway. Soft and soggy chicken with a small build, her father still asked for it so she has to oblige. She'll try to make sure though that you're prepared extra well to make up for it, and be the dinner you deserve to be, and she'll certainly never forget you, always remembering and thinking about those amazing lands and other world beyond, that she can only dream of while looking out the window.
>>
>>1277802
Suggest that she comes with us. Rather than look out the window, why not be the one looking in from the other side for once? Tell her that the greatest people of our race are the ones who dared to take a risk, and to chase their dreams.

You offer her to go with you and do make a pretty convincing argument and story to her honestly, but it doesn't convince her. And to be honest, you don't think it would have anyway, it sounds like she's probably lived on this farm her whole life, it's not like one day some outsider is going to turn up and convince her to run away in a few minutes.

She does like the sound of the idea even if she says it's not possible though, and appreciates the offer. For all your talk and brightening her day and making her happy, entertaining her though, she'd feel bad just cooking you up now. Standing above you with her hands in front of you on the rim of the cookpot, she ponders for awhile and asks if you have any useful skills? If she can convince her father that you would do better as a servant for now, maybe she could get him interested in the idea of you being their servant until a time when she can fatten you up and you'd make a better meal.

Suggest that he'd probably take a better deal if she'd reciprocate what we told her earlier about stopping raids. This is a once in a life time opportunity. They can either eat us as barely a bite-sized snack, or they can be rid of the annoying pests who thieve and leech off their hard work.

We also know how to farm more effectively. Like grafting to replicate the best, juiciest crops. Or, you know, we make a nice lawn ornament.

Her father has been farming all his life and she too learned from him so she doubts there's anything there you could be of use as. You're too small as well for even hard labor, like if they got a troll servant to do just that. Any sort of household work or chores is more appealing, even if she just said you could help her.

The offer about stopping the raids is a good idea she says, again, but she doubts her father will agree. Partly because he's old and stubborn, partly because he doesn't mind the raids. The greenies (as she calls them) never take *that* much and they serve as an outside food source. So he doesn't mind when the farm gets raided because that usually means an orc or two captured or killed and served up for supper, or maybe even a troll.

She's not saying it's impossible to change his mind, and she certainly would prefer a peaceful solution, but the current situation actually benefits her father and he prefers it. She'd support your claim but she doesn't think that would amount to much.

Shhh just accept it. There are three ways to get what you want when a sentient party is concerned.

1. War.
2. Exploitation of self-interest.
3. Sex.

The first isnt plausible and the second failed along with the horrid dice rolls. So now we're using the last one.

Desperation

Ogres can't have the healthiest hearts I'm sure if they're flustered enough given their large body mass, it'll result in them passing out.

I don't agree, but as the players you can do whatever you want. I'm trying to understand though, what exactly it is you're trying to do though, since there were multiple suggestions, all a little vague. Or at least, unclear if joking.

Ok so you want to try and make a move on the ogress daughter? Just making sure you're aware of the risks involved, and what you're trying to accomplish.

If so go ahead and say what it you do, more detailed the better, and roll if you like.

Just for recap as it stands, you're standing together, you in the cookpot, as she's wondering how to keep you from getting eaten.

Alright, looks like this course of action is being followed

>>1277958
>46

It seems your reasonable approach before with Grumelda won't work here, or at least not as well, the old ogre seems set in his ways. Maybe though if you could establish some kind of friendliness with the daughter, you could avoid getting eaten and maybe work towards some better idea or plan.

So seeing as how you've already captured her interest and curiosity, you think maybe you could play on that? You try to act charming then without much else to do, and maybe gain some feelings from her. Your attempt isn't that great, kind of average, you compliment her skills and her looks. You're kind of in a panic faced with being cooked up and eaten though so it's the best you can manage.

And while it wasn't a great attempt, and doesn't capture her heart, you do seem to gain her sympathy as she thinks you to be very sweet and make her feel good with compliments. So lifting you out of the pot finally, she hugs you close to her big body and says she couldn't feel alright with eating such a nice little human. She's not sure about your plan and efforts about the other greenie tribes, but at least she can keep you alive. Finally loosing the hug, she carries you over and sets you on the counter by a basin of dirty things, and tells you to start washing dishes and tableware. Just make yourself look busy, and when her father gets back later, she'll try and make a case for you to be kept alive as a servant.

At least you're no longer in the cookpot, though you're now seated half in a big basin full of dirty plates, cups, and other such things, while she continues to prepare for dinner and wonders aloud what she could substitute in your place.

If that dice roll had been a 3, Trevor would be dead now.

>>1278373
Anyway, you start washing the dishes, a long and arduous process, but better than being cooked you suppose. While it was just some mundane task she shoved off on you to make you look helpful and busy though, you do a pretty good job of it, enough to surprise her and she thinks you might actually be able to prove your worth.

Anyway, after working at that and some other chores with her for a couple hours more, eventually you can hear the old ogre thumping up the steps as he enters into the house, here for lunch the ogress prepared. He's dragging a maimed orc and looks injured and tired himself as she rushes over to show sympathy and try to help him out, which he's refusing of. From what you hear of their talking, while he was out in the fields a group of greenies tried to attack and get their pet human back or something like that. He fought and drove them off though, and caught this orc for dinner as well.

When he notices you he does become visibly angry, fuming about you not being cooked up, but the ogress pleads with him about keeping you alive and showing off your usefulness and how you helped her with work around the house. And so while the ogre was angry at first, when he sees your work with the dishes, and sweeping the floors and such, he begrudgingly gives in to her pleading and recognizes your usefulness. Mainly though he does it, and makes clear to you and his daughter, that it's a temporary thing so that you can be fattened up to make for a better meal at a later date.

So he hands the orc to his daughter, who thankful for his relenting about your fate immediately tosses said orc in the cookpot instead, before going about to bring the old ogre lunch. During this time though he approaches you and asks if you have any skills besides housework, and eventually does come around to asking why you bothered coming here in the first place, what was it that you wanted before? He didn't care at first, but if you're going to be the new servant he might as well hear your business.

>>1278531
It's a two-in-one. He stop the raids and he get a lifetime supply of orc, goblin, and troll. As opposed to the one-time bite-sized human he gets from eating us. And point out that he'll only ever be able to benefit from deals like this with us, since the orcs, goblins, and trolls are too damn stubborn without our command.
>>
>>1278528
>>1278531
You explain your plan to him and talk about the same thing you did with Grumelda, while he moves to recline in his big chair before the fireplace. He listens to what you have to say, but ends up not being to fond of the plan. It seems in his age, wisdom perhaps, but he has some sense of the future or at least the preservation of things. Like the ogress said, he more or less likes the way things are, the raids mean a constant supply of greenies to eat. Your plan sounds like a good one that could work, but he doesn't understand why he would trade an ongoing regular supply of greenies to eat, in favor of a one-time mass of greenies he would get from destroying the other tribes. After that, you make it sound like things would be all peaceful, which means no more raids after that, so no more greenies. He looks you in the eyes and leans forward even with a pointing finger, and asks if when things are peaceful, if you'd be the one to choose which of your own greenies, of your tribe when it's the only one left, would be the ones to be sent here to be eaten?
>>
>>1278558
Tell him it wont be a lifetime of supplies that he'll have to give us. Just enough for us to recover from the war and to jump-start our tribe for a better life. We'd like it to work together for this war effort, and then remain allies, FRIENDS, afterwards. We know they hate "greenies", but tell him it doesn't have to be that way. We can work hand-in-hand, intending to expand. To go beyond and expand our dominance, both that of our tribe AND the ogres, into further lands. If he doesnt want to come, fine, but has he ever wondered what Elves and Dwarves taste like? And if he isn't into that, we can simply defend each other's peace, which we would do anyway with the other alternative, or hunt wild game alongside one another.

I misunderstood.
>it wont be a lifetime of supplies that he'll have to give us
He was talking about the greenies. So tell him that he'll want to because his lifetime supply of greenies will merely be a few at a time. It will be small, reserved. Is he so satisfied with such meager proportions? The one-time favor would be many. And after, he will get many more of other races. Of beasts beyond this farmland and of the swamps. More food, better food than any greeny. Greenies are mere fodder in comparison. We know that there are better beasts to be eaten, as we've eaten some ourselves.
