Throughout numerous generations, your tribe has lived in this land. Monsters roam this land, and they control and shape this world. Some of these beasts use their claws and fangs to hunt prey, while some others can control fire, ice, and lightning. There are beasts that rule the sky, swooping down upon an unsuspecting tribesman, or spirits from beneath the earth that can crush rock as easily as it can move. It would seem that there is little hope for you and your tribe.But not all is lost. You, as the leader of your tribe, has managed to befriend one of these creatures. If these beasts can be tamed, perhaps you can ascend past this stage of mere survival, and become a tribe that will stand the test of time.---Hey folks, wanted to try something that has already been done before: a civilization game in the world of Pokemon. You will control the leader of a prehistoric tribe. The setting will not be a 1:1 rendition of the original Pokemon regions. Additionally, I may take artistic liberties when it is necessary. This game will not have as much crunch compared to most other Civ games, mostly relying on flavor. With that out of the way, let's get to the tribe creation.>Choose a name for your leader and tribe. Other details about your tribe and leader is also appreciated.>Choose your starter. It may be any Pokemon, as long as it is not a Pokemon that resembles a manmade object(i.e. Voltorb, Trubbish, etc.), or a Legendary Pokemon.

>Choose a name for your leader and tribe.

>>1926685You are Vad, leader of the the Draak Tribe. The Draak is well-known for their courage, honesty, and fighting spirit. Because of this, they are among the most venerated tribes in the land despite their low numbers. There is a reason for this limited population: Dragonmouth. Dragonmouth was the rite of ascension for all Draak tribesmen who come of age. The process is simple, but dangerous. The men had to enter the Dragon's Den and survive until the morning. Typically, this results in quite a few deaths, but the survivors come out stronger than ever. You are the new tribe leader for your performance in this year's Dragonmouth.Under your leadership, not only did all of your comrades leave the Dragon's Den alive, but you also emerged with a new companion. It is a small, snakelike wyrm, though your tribe's shaman tells you that 'it' is actually a 'he'. It has blue scales and inquisitive eyes. It seems to stand firm in the face of danger, adamantly resisting outside forces. Despite its meek appearance, it is this creature that helped save your life during Dragonmouth. He was impressed by your bravery and lead you and your companions to a safe spot to rest. Once the rite was complete, it followed you home.Speaking of home, the Draak live in the mountainside. One could see the huts and tents outside on the mountain trails, but the majority of your tribe live within the mountain itself. Luminescent crystals light the path, and the cave shelters you from most of the elements. Your gatherers mostly make do by foraging the mountainside for nuts and berries, but you know that this cannot last forever.Action must be taken, but how?>Tribe Population: 15 (8 men, 4 women, 3 children)>Tribe Specialty: Warrior (+10 to all Combat rolls)>Food Supply: Meager.

>>1927092You figure that if you want to learn about these creatures, you’ll need to begin with your newfound companion. You ask the serpent if it could show you what it could do, and it looked back at you with some modicum of intelligence. It slithered up to your leg and made it's way up your body. You do your best to suppress your base instinct of ripping its grip away and stomping on it. The lithe body wraps itself around your arm. It isn’t particularly painful, but you have a feeling that it’d be much more painful if it were actively trying to harm you.When it is satisfied that you understand, it stares at you with an intimidating leer. Fear was an effective tool, but you were unmoved, having faced down greater things during your Dragonmouth. Afterwards, you feel a jolt run up and down your arm. Your muscles seized for a moment before returning to normal. That might be useful. Lastly, it disentangles from you and makes its way in front of you. It stares at a nearby stone, and you watch as the serpent’s tail take on a brilliant metallic sheen. With a single, powerful stroke, it shatters the stone. That seemed like it could be useful.Dratini knows:>Wrap>Leer>Thunder Wave>Iron TailWith that, you take a pair of men with you, and scout out the nearby region. Through years of experience, you already knew what monsters existed in this part of the mountain, but it was probably best for you to get acquainted with them yourself now that you had a beast of your own.You’d sometimes notice that stones seemed to move on their own. It was like they were alive. Sure enough, when you to go investigate, you realize that they were actually beasts. The rocks seemed to grow arms, and have eyes. When they aren’t moving, it’s almost indistinguishable from normal rocks and boulders. Aside from them, you also notice what seem to be small, bipedal beasts with spirals for eyes. Each one sports a different pattern on their fur, and they seem mesmerizing to spectate. Lastly, you also notice slow-moving quadrupedal beasts moving across the mountainside. They have large humps on their back with a single hole on the top, and seem to exude a certain aura of heat.>Known Pokemon: Draak Mountains>Geodude>Spinda>NumelWhile you’re searching for beasts, you send another party to look for new resources. Wood, stone, and mud have been a staple for your buildings, but finding something new would be helpful. However, instead of searching away from the village, your tribesmen delve deeper into the caverns beneath the mountain. They manage to find stones of distinguishable hardness; perhaps these could make great tools!>Discovered Hard Stone>>1927087As per most Quests, you're free to drop in and vote at any time. This is not a multiciv game, however. This is quest where all players vote on the actions of a single civ.

Perhaps with our monster's help we could use iron tail to get at the strongest stones and make a weapon suitable for ourselves as chieftain of this mighty people. Big ole crystal spear or something
Praying for your wellbeing Hawthorne in Jesus name. Thanks for running. Great so far. The pacing is worth the writing quality.
>>1927262I second this, my research was ghey anyway>>1927271Amen good brother
>>1927259You're doing fine for a supposedly rusty QM. I like this so far. Totally not because my tribe won I hope it lasts.I'm not sure we can really have a party larger than around 2 or 3 because we don't have Pokeballs. I think instead we should get others among us to befriend pokemon and using them to our advantage. Ember Snatchers are weak to us, but Hy'ur and Elani will be big challenges should we choose war. Best course of action right now is to build ourselves up and try and understand our 'mons. Cave exploration once Dratini evolves and someone gets a Numel is a must.
>>1927292Perhaps dratini could act as an intermediary for us? Help us show these monsters we are trustworthy and stalwart?
>>1927292I meant for the Hy'ur to be fairly diplomatic, in a sense. Sort of a, "hey we're going to use this stuff, and if you have a problem we're going to beat the shit out of you for rights to use it."Not necessarily the most diplomatic per se; I meant for them to be more along the lines of raiders, even, what with eventually farming axes from the neighbouring tribe of Haxorus-- those that didn't come in line with them, at least.But yeah. They, ideally, would take to the seas and be a scourge up until someone told them that wasn't okay, and had the guts to prove it.
>>1927335Well Haxorous can't fly and hit Dragonite, so I would want to see that matchup.>>1927308Sure, why not?>>1927259Hope you aren't dying of somethin' boyo.

As for how many Pokemon you can have in your party, it's still at a maximum of 6. Do keep in mind that they have to walk around with you, so until you guys research a primitive version of Apricorn Balls, the logistics of having multiple 'mons must be taken into account. And yes, your tribemates will also have their own Pokes once they realize how useful they can be. I plan on introducing a couple named NPCs soon, and they'll act like sub-heroes to the main character.>>1927335I'll definitely keep this in mind when they show up.

If these beasts are anything like people, then that means with practice, they can improve. Thus, you elect to train your Dratini until it becomes stronger. You do some basic exercises alongside it, after all, the best way to lead is by example. At one point however, you realize that these would only result in the development of brawn rather than technique. You consult the tribe’s shaman, Khull for helpful information. He tells you that inside all living things, is energy unique to their ‘element’. So someone like you would have fighting energy, while something like Dratini would have draconic energy. You thank him for the time, and head back to the open, grassy field to train.You spend some time cultivating the energies within yourself. It doesn’t do much for you, but the serpent seems… at ease. Calm, yet bursting with energy. You tell it to take this power and release it. The Dratini fires off its draconic energy in the form of sweeping winds. It cuts away at the stone. You look satisfied at the serpent, but it looks adamant; intent on taking it one step further. The dragon digs deep, and fires off a ball of blue fiery energy. The fireball takes out a chunk of the rocks in front of you, causing you to swell with pride. Shortly afterwards however, the serpent collapses on the floor, exhausted. It seems he can only use that powerful move a few times at most before exhausting its stamina.>Dratini learned Twister>Dratini learned Dragon RageYou take your beast and some of your fellow tribesmen into the mines. They try to chip away at the Hard Stone with their own stone tools, but find it difficult, only chipping away at the edges. With a flash of inspiration, you order your Dratini to perform that stone-shattering technique that it did before. The serpent does so, causing the stone to shudder and crack. A second Iron Tail breaks the stone into decent-sized stones. Your men get to work, taking those stones and carving them into tools and weapons for the cause. By the end of the day, you have several new and improved gear!>Gain Hard Stones>Gain Hard Stone ToolsNot to be undone however, you tell your Dratini to repeat the process with the crystals. Amazingly, the crystals retain their luminescence. You combine that with some wood, and the new Hard Stones to craft a spear for yourself. In direct sunlight, it seems to magnify the light, causing temporary blindness if used correctly. In darkness, it provides small amounts of light akin to a flashlight. All in all, this gives you some ideas. Perhaps you could craft more tools with these crystals, or perhaps use them for other purposes.>Gain Light Crystals>Gain Crystal Spear
>>1927594Emboldened by their new tools, your tribesmen organize a hunt. Their Hard Stone spears should allow them to pierce tougher hides than before. It takes your men quite some time to properly hunt the spiral-eyed beasts, as their movements are befuddling to even your most experienced hunters. By the end of it, the men find the meat a little bit stringy, but when cooked over the fire for long enough, it becomes quite tasty.That’s not all. Your gatherers refused to be outdone, searching for more food on their own. To their surprise, they discovered a red berry that’s quite spicy. The tribesmen have taken to applying it to the meat they gathered to add some spice to their meals. The interesting part is that it seems to induce limberness when consumed. Perhaps it’ll do the same for beasts?>Gain Food Source: Spinda>Gain Food Souce: Cheri Berry Trees>Tribe Population: 15 (8 men, 3 women, 1 pregnant woman, 3 children)>Tribe Specialty: Warrior (+10 to all Combat rolls)>Food Supply: Decent.

>>1927675“What is it you ask of me, Chieftain Vad?” Shaman Khull asked. You ask him if there is a way to capture and tame beasts. The shaman tells you that it had been done before; as you are a living example of that. Khull then goes on to explain that Dragons are among the most difficult to tame, as their pride and bestial nature makes it hard to compromise. With that in mind, many beasts will join in exchange for food, safety, and strangely enough, glory. Of course, if you cannot negotiate or befriend a beast, it’s always possible to just capture them. Beating a beast into submission and then taking it with had been done before. But the Shaman tells you that the one who defeats the beast must be the one who takes ownership, otherwise the monster will not respect their commands. It is possible to give orders to a pokemon that you do not ‘own’, but you must earn their respect. He then goes on to say that not every beast needs to be ‘owned’ to be friendly. He recalled that the Elani tribe had a herd of Gogoats and Skiddo that travelled alongside them, for example.All of this is an eye-opening experience. It’s surprising that Krull is so wise even at a younger age compared to the previous shamans. With that in mind, the women of the tribe devise something that may aid in the capture of beasts. Vine and plant fibers woven into a loose, but sturdy lattice. With this net you should be able to capture a few beasts so you could take them back to the village.>Researched Woven NetsYou turn your attention to the caverns that you call home. The Draak mostly reside near the mouth and center of the cave, but the deeper recesses remain unexplored. Guided by the crystal lights, you and several others descend into the depths. The darkness around you seems palpable, and the eerie atmosphere feels suffocating.You keep your beast nearby, in case of an attack from another monster. It’s then that you notice more crystalline lights in the distance. The strangest thing is that they’re moving. You realize that it must be like those rock monsters you’ve encountered previously. It’s then that you notice that the lights around you begin to wane, it’s almost as if the crystals were shrinking.The Dratini lets loose a blast of draconic energy from its maw, striking a strange, incorporeal creature. It appears to be bipedal, yet also incorporeal. In place of normal eyes are two large gemstones. It grins at you, prompting another attack from your beast. It goes down this time, causing it to recede into the darkness. You have a feeling normal means of capturing that kind of monster isn’t going to cut it.The path into the caves seem to wind on and on. Satisfied with the progress you’ve made so far, you and your men head back.>Known Pokemon: Mountain Depths>Geodude>Carbink>Sableye
>>1927768You being to realize the importance of keeping your beast in tip-top shape, so you do some training with the serpent.

>>1927868((Combined the first and third choices))You and Khull descend into the caverns once more to locate those ghostlike monsters you found. Sure enough, you find them near the area that you saw them last. Khull nods in understanding. “Ah, spirits of the earth.” He says to you as he reaches for a bone necklace in his pack. It is adorned with gemstones, which draws the curiosity of the Sableye. “Let’s negotiate.” He says. Over the span of an hour, Khull and the various Sableye begin speaking in the language of the spirits. The shaman tells you that only one of the Sableye is interested in the deal they had created. It was simple: the Sableye would follow his owner’s orders, and even show them where to find precious stones, provided that he be able to help himself to consuming a part of whatever he finds. Additionally, the spirit states that if he should ever feel bored, or if any part of the accord was broken, he would leave without a second thought. That’s certainly an interesting offer, but the question is, who gets the Sableye?>Who gets the Sableye? You, or Khull?Once the deal is struck, you head over to the surface. The slow-moving Numels are not difficult to find. As they trudge around the mountain, you toss a net over one, and are met with immediate, but slow resistance. That is to say, the Numel stood there unmoving until you knocked it out with a Hard Stone club. Dragging it to the village was a difficult task, but you all managed to do so. When the thing awoke, it seemed indifferent to the change in scenery. Maybe it simply doesn’t care enough to struggle completely. Ah well, in any case, you have another beast on your side, even if it is a little lazy.>Numel was captured! You may assign its owner at any time, or you can simply designate it as livestock. Once it's owner is assigned, it cannot be changed.You take your beast over to the caverns and begin training again. Over the few weeks, it has grown in size considerably, both in size and strength. There was no reason to stop now, you surmise. You begin to train its physical power by striking at stones. Your bones creak and ache underneath the pressure, but you press on.

>>1927958>KhullI think he understands it better, sadly. >Assign numel to one of the warriors who have shown promise>Explore north>Develop Food Source plant more trees>TRAIN. it shall be the strongest, most swole of dratini
>>1927958Hm. Seems like thread has slowed down a bit. Timezones and all. I'll leave this next vote up for a bit and reply once there's enough discussion.
>>1927972Agreed on Khull, perhaps he can form a greater alliance with the Sableye population. I would think there is some greater desire in one of these creatures than hunger and boredom. If we find even one with some semblance of ambition we could utilize that drive to our own ends. And if not maybe Khull can simply expand his knowledge. I wouldn't mind starting a small enclave of shamen once we have the men for it, each with a spirit of their own. >Develop Food Source plant more treesWe could use some meat. We should try breeding Spinda. One we breed specifically for docility and weight, another group for intelligence. We eat the one and train the others.
>>1927999Ye', i really want a sableye, but i understand that we're probably not the best people to have it. there are greater ghost types we can snatch anyway. And the trees thing was just for the long term, ill agree about the breeding spinda. Thats not a bad plan.
>>1927958Goodnight Hawthorne, see you around. I'll be back in 8 hours or so.
>>1928013Good night, Anon.I'll put the thread on pause for a while, as it seems we haven't quite come to a consensus yet. Not to mention timezones. Hope you guys had fun.
>>1927958>Who gets the Sableye?-Khull

Hey folks, Hawthorne here, posting from phone. Pokémon Tribe Civ continues in roughly 6-7 hours. Stay tuned!
>>1928493Whattup Hawthorne. Hope you're feeling well. Glad to see you back today.
>>1928497Thanks anon. I'm feeling alright, if a little bit sore. I was actually just about to turn in for the night. Rest assured that I will be able to run for a while during the designated time though.In the meantime, we're still taking votes and other suggestions. If anyone would like to pitch in, you're free to do so. Feedback and advice is always welcome too.
>>1928515Dropped my trip for a moment there.
>>1928515Back again. Let's go boys.>>1927958>Khull gets the Sableye, a strong farmer gets the Numel.>Explore the caves with Sableye>Find some beefmeats>Train with Dratini
Also, we need women. Perhaps we could send small armed and monstered envoys in a looping circular formation looking for our nearest neighbors. Focusing on creating allies and even assimilation. I would love to find a weaker tribe and invite them in. We need to expand our birthrate as well as gain allies. We have 15 people and only 4 women.
>>1928578This is a great idea. Can't do anything without a population. I'd say we need to secure extra food first though to support it.
Oh! Also. With our sableye and interpreter/shaman I bet we could find some ore. Then with Numel we could start refining ore. This plus our crystals gives us a major advantage in battle and trade.
>>1928581Excellent point. I'm still in favor of spinda farming. I don't want to focus on conventional weapons when we have monsters or traditional sources of protein when we can kill two birds with one stone.We have two kids doing nothing. Assign them, one mother and one man to oversee the spinda farming. The man can focus on safety and spindas which seem smart enough to train, the woman can focus on differentiating between livestock and trainable mons while watching over the kids, the kids can be in charge of feeding amd caring for the docile livestock and foraging in the immedate area for feed. After awhile assign them spinda partners who have been trained to establish a pattern in our culture of having captive rasied mons as companions from youth.
>>1928596would you really prefer spinda over numel? I imagine the numel are much easier to control, have more meat, and are less likely to mesmerize their handlers
>>1928599When back I'd like OP to chime in on how they appear in this world. To me wiley rabbits beat mini volcanoes. I know in the lore they're ground/fire types filled with 2000+ degree lava. But if OP rules they can be eaten lets catch a bunch and eat them. They're perfect cattle. Docile, food driven, with utility beyond their meat.
>>1928618Yeah that's cool with me
So this is what I'm thinking we've only got 15 people15 people1 chief1 shaman6 men3 women1 preg 3 childrenLet's take1 man1 woman1 childAnd make them mon farmers of numel/spindaLet's take2 menAnd with the help of numel make them blacksmithsLet's give our shaman1 child acolyte Together they can alternate between ore sourcing and spirit mon relationship development/mentorship in whatever being a shaman entailsThat leaves us with a 3 man strike force. They should spend half their days training with weapons and spend the other half hunting mon. They get our spinda\numel stock, they train alongside dratini and the chief when they train, they are our first line of defense and will likely woo some geodudes with their prowess.That leaves 2 women who should make us all the nets our strikers can carry.
>>1928700I also wonder what our social structure is like. Do our men and women pair off? Do stronger men have many wives? If we have no structure or proclivities then we should probably encourage as much sex between unpregnant women and as many men as possible. Chances of std's in this small of a population are null and something in our current model is off if we only have a 25% reproductive rate among sexually active women.No magical realm crap just a rotation of men and women each night. Should keep morale up and boost population growth.
Hey Anons, I've returned. Anyone in the thread right now?>>1928618Both Numel and Spinda can provide food when butchered, though their exact 'drops' will not be revealed until you put some research into it. >>1928700>>1928712Currently, the Draak tribe has a low female population because of a spreading plague that decimated the Draak numbers. They're better now, but that's something to keep in mind. I'll definitely have to change how population works and lay down some solid mechanics.I think I might go with the simple method of population increasing every 3 turns. Women become pregnant, Pregnant Women produce Children, and Children become Men or Women. It's honestly not the cleanest way of doing things, considering that chronologically, only about 5 months(1 turn = 1 month) have passed.With all that out of the way however, exploring the surrounding lands for tribes and lone wanderers to join the tribe is definitely possible.>>1927972>>1927999>>1928141>>1928462>>1928551Looks like we're going to:>Assign Sableye to Khull>Assign Numel to a prominent warrior/farmer/person who gets the Numel to do something>Develop Food Source (Plant some Cheri Berry Trees)>Train with Dratini>Explore NorthI think, if my count is correct.

>>1929558I was imagining how that I could play out....and man...daymares.
The ghostly monster takes well to the shaman, even if it is the result of a negotiation. Its perpetual grin never leaves its face as it follows Khull out of the deeper recesses of the cavern. Khull thanks you for helping him acquire a beast of his own, and says that he will continue to assist you in whatever matters you have.>Sableye was assigned to Shaman Khull!Finding someone that will appeal to the Numel is much more difficult in comparison. A multitude of your warriors attempt to bond and appeal with it, but it seems to stubbornly refuse everyone. You have half a mind to just butcher the thing and be done with it, but then you see it walking alongside Ghaak, a man who is just a little bit younger than you.Ghaak was never the strongest of warriors, nor was he the fleetest. In fact, he spends a lot of time alone, slumbering for long periods of time until he’s called upon. Despite this however, he manages to keep up with the other warriors by putting his sharp intelligence to use. Where others would rush in, he would stay behind and form a plan of action, for example.When you ask him how he managed to tame the Numel, Ghaak told you that he simply relaxed next to it, and eventually the beast seemed to grow a fondness for him. In the end, you suppose that his passive nature is useful for some things after all.>Numel was assigned to Ghaak!You were all tending to your duties inside the village when a man dressed in pristine white robes arrives, riding atop of a large spider. He dismounts, kneeling before you and retrieving a parcel from his beast. “Greetings, Chieftain Vad.” The messenger says to you. “The Silkfoot Tribe sends its regards. I come from the Silken Forests to the south to bring my message.” The man hands you the package, when you unfurl it, you see that it is a set of fine cloths in an assortment of vibrant colors.“It is a gift made in goodwill, in hopes that you will consider trade between our two peoples.” The messenger explains. When you ask him about what they have in the forests, he tells you that they have high-quality lumber, sweet berries with a mild curative effect, and of course, silk and dyes. The man also tells you that they are willing to negotiate the transfer of beasts, provided that you give something of equal value. You briefly wonder what to do with the man before you.>Received Fine Silks>What do you do with the man? Accept? Refuse? Kill him? Etc.
>>1929750You send your gatherers to collect as many Cheri berries as they can and plant them nearby. Cultivating these might be the key to creating a stable food source, after all. Your villagers begin planting the berries in the mountainside. The mountain soil is not that rich, but with constant nurturing, the Cheri berry trees begin to thrive.>Food Source Updated: Cheri Berry Trees is now Cheri Berry Farm!You begin training with your serpentine friend once more. This time, you both race up and down the mountain trails in an attempt to improve your speed. At first, you outpace the beast, but once it begins focusing, it blazes past you at an impressive speed. By the end of it, you’re both on the ground, exhausted from your training. Once you rest, you both know that you’ll repeat the process with a smile.>Dratini learned Agility>Dratini learned Quick AttackYou, Ghaak, and a few other tribesmen explore to the north of the mountain range. The terrain seems to get more and more rocky. Not only that, but as you move further north, the heat seems to increase. It’s then that you spot the lava that flows from the side of the mountain. Ghaak’s Numel seems at ease here, even more so than usual. Down below in the nearby valley, you spot ash and soot that presumably came from the constant volcanic activity in the area. If your hunch is correct, you might find something of interest here, whether it be different kinds of beasts, new resources, or perhaps even another tribe.>Discovered Pyrous Mountains>Tribe Population: 16 (8 men, 4 women, 4 children)>Tribe Specialty: Warrior (+10 to all Combat rolls)>Food Supply: Decent.

If Ghaak is truely as smart as claimed I'd like to ask his opinion of the envoy. Personally I'd consider offering a small amount of our gems in return for his silks. I would also like to send a message suggesting a collaborative mon catching effort. With the strength of both our warriors and mons we should catch more quickly and with less risk.
Still love to get meat back on the menu as well.
>>1929757Whoops, forgot to change the food supply.>Food Supply: Good. Foraged nuts and berries, Spinda, Cheri Berry Farm
>>1929757>>Research (Specify)The concept of lamps. Even if not especially useful, we could probably increase our tribe's productivity drastically.> Look for new resourcesOres, definitely. With a Numel, and Ghaak being so smart, we might just be beginning to have an actual smithy.>Explore Pyrous MountainsI feel like we should get a good grasp on the new area, first, before doing anything.Not going to say what to do with the envoy, but we should definitely collaborate with them to try and catch stronger porks.
We need a water type badly, or a Miltank.Clean water and healthy clean milk? We can't pass that up.
>>1929791Miltank are native to plains like areas iircWe'll probably meet a tribe with them later on, I think.
>>1929788I'm nervous to go into the mountains without allies.
Going to need some more votes. Otherwise, we'll go with >>1929788Will leave the voting up for a bit.
>>1929788I agree on lamps, sure our friends in the dark can help us to the deep dark. Also viable for trading.Love ore and smithy
>>1929832Nah, if anything I think the tribe there (if there even is any) will be like, small and probably sick.Breathing in soot does bad things for the body.

We, are not rolling great.
>>1929966Ghaak and a few other workers begin attempting a project of their own. By harnessing the power of the luminescent crystals that are found in the caves, they figured that they could create an alternative to using fire as a light source. However, things are a little more difficult than expected. If the crystals are carved up, then it may lose its light. Additionally, with the variance of the light between crystals, some of the lamps they create produce a dim light instead of the bright light they might’ve originally produced. Despite this however, Ghaak manages to create a few lamps that have all the light that a torch can produce, minus the heat.>Researched: Prototype Crystal LampsKhull and Ghaak then head into the caverns in search of metals. It’s rumored that when made properly, these metal tools can last even longer than ones made of Hard Stone. Your men keep on the lookout for strangely-colored stones, but only manage to find more Hard Stone. Dejected, they turn to head back up the surface when Khull’s Sableye points them in the right direction: stones that take on a green-orange tint. Your men get to work, quickly finding it easily to chip away at. It doesn’t seem like this metal is tougher than Hard Stone, but you’ve got a feeling it might be useful nevertheless.>Discovered: Copper>Gain: CopperYou take the two other Beast Tamers in the tribe aside and ask them for their opinion. Khull tells you what he knows of the Silkfoot Tribe, saying that he heard that they’re an up-and-coming tribe that used to be a splinter group of the Elani tribe. They had found the forest and decided to settle instead of remaining nomadic on the plains. The Shaman mentions that they must use insect and nature beasts, as that is what is naturally found in the forest. In the end, he advised you to be wary of them, as he worried for any possible ulterior motives they may harbor.Ghaak on the other hand, says not to worry so much. The warrior explains that if they’re new and developing, then it’d be unlikely for them to pick a fight with one of the oldest tribes in the land. He then goes on to say that there is much more to be gained from peaceful trade than a hostile takeover. As he rests his head against his slumbering Numel, he tells you that while you should be wary(as one always should be around possible threats), having more allies in the land is always helpful.
>>1930106You send the envoy away with a small collection of precious stones that the miner’s found, telling him of an idea you had: a group hunt to capture and tame more beasts for both tribes. He tells you that he’d confer with his chieftain, and leaves. The same envoy returns several days later, alongside his chieftain and several hunters. Their chieftain is a woman, dressed in leather armor and fine silks. She and her hunters had bows, knives, and ropes; a stark contrast to your tribe’s spears. A beast that resembled a mantis moved alongside her, it's height just above her knee. It almost seemed like both plant and animal.“Chieftain Vad.” The woman says. “I am Thellu, leader of the Silkfoot Tribe.” She says with a curt bow. You do the same, introducing yourself and the tribesmen around you. You invite the Silkfoot tribes to dine with you as you hash out the details of the plan. After a quick meal, you decide to hunt for beasts here in the Draak Mountainside, before moving to the Silken Forest. Over the course of a few days, your tribe aids the Silkfoot Tribe in capturing the beasts of the mountain. Ghaak even manages to convince one of those rocks to follow him. The Silkfoot Tribe walked away with several new beasts, most notably Spinda and Numel. The Draak then followed the other tribesmen south to enter the Silken Forest.>Ghaak captured Geodude!Beasts here are much more different than the ones in the mountains. Instead of being tough or large, they are quick and small. It’s then that you realize as to why the Silkfoot hunters prefer to use bows instead of spears: it’s better suited to their environment. A few of your hunters walk away with beasts of their own, mostly birds or insects. You and Khull manage to capture two creatures; a round bird with green feathers and sharp eyes, and a strange bipedal mushroom.>Known Pokemon: Silken Forest>Pidgey>Weedle>Natu>Shroomish>The following pokemon must be assigned: Natu, ShroomishIt was good battle experience for all parties involved, and Dratini in particular really got to shine.

>>1930108Let's start researching a forge using Numel's inherent Fire type properties.After that, let's explore the Pyrous Mountains, with our newly acquired Shroomish and Dratini. (This means Ghaak gets Natu.)Then, let's train, honing our Dratini and Shroomish.
Hey Anons. I've got an appointment soon, soI'll leave this vote up and come back to it later. I'll be gone anywhere from an hour to three or four hours. Hopefully it finishes soon, and then I can get back to this, likely from a different IP.Oh, I forgot to mention. Ghaak caught a Geodude, one of your hunters caught a Pidgey, and the other one caught a Weedle. These guys are technically owned, but if you want, you can instead designate some of them for livestock or breeding.
>>1930152Take care man.>>1930125I like the plan but we should probably train shroomish and dratini to work together first before any exploring.And since we're a martial tribe, exploration and information could be game changing. We should research vellum or cave paintings for a proto-pokedex in my opinion
>>1930108I think we shoukd try to get a caretaker/birthing woman/medicineman a pokemon so to defend them and the camp. We keep the main force with us from what I'm seeing, and that leaves a significant hole to our defences.Also, let's train up. We got only 1st evo pokemon right now and we should try to get them evolved very soon.
>>1930106>Research those prototype lamps>Train with Dratini>Explore Cave depthswe really need a water typeoh and>Assign Natu to one of the more intelligent warriors>Assign shroomish to a villager.
>>1930152Be well man. You're doing a great job. Thanks for the random encounter with this cool clan. Although I'm still a bit wary of their proactive nature. Get back safe.
>>1930162>>1930180I strongly agree with training up before going out. I see no reason why we should have every assigned mon and their master join Dratini and the Chief for a round or more of training. Working in unision could be pivotal. The tribe we just met has awesome mon but seem to rely heavily om conventional weapons. Perhaps we can outpace our peers if we can progress alongside our companion monsters.
>>1930211Are you hoping to refine the lamp making process? To what end? Trade or personal use?
>>1930162Proto-pokedex. This is awesome. We shpuld absolutely have our shaman begin to keep records of his knowledge. We can then begin to trade in information and train our people. Love this idea.
>>1930242Trade. I think that other tribes could appreciate having another source of light besides the sun and fire.
>>1930255Agreed, it's a unique and very valuable resource to trade with.
>>1930265honestly i think what we really need is a water type, thing could be dead fucking useful.
>>1930180Good thing that shroomish evolve fast-ish and Breloom is a fucking bro-mon
>>1930273WAIT WAIT. We could have Shroomish lace nets with Spores for a Bonus to captures!
I suppose my vote for the time being would be >assign Vad and Ghaak a second mon and then assign all other mon to our strongest warriors. Have them all train together.> Have Ghaak and Khull use their heads and their mons abilities to begin sussing out smithing, perhaps with an apprentice along>then I'm torn between proto-pokedex (which is too cool but can probably be postponed), getting better at lamp making (which is very valuable but isn't as fun since we did it last turn), and exploring the cave system (perhaps we can find some water pokemon in there with our added light sources, find better minerals than copper, or find a fallback base)
>>1930279Yup, probably change my third vote to this.
>>1930285Teach pidgey to carry laced nets over distracted mons and catch them by surprise.
>>1930269A tropius too, we need food for winter when that shit hits. Also, when it does, and Hibernating pokemon come around looking for a place, we're gonna havelots of competition.

>>1930108Well, that entrance was proven wrong pretty fast, but you guys seem to have things on a lock.

>>1930412Haha nice, I was mostly being sarcastic. I used to roll higher
>>1930412The small, bipedal fungus looks up at you curiously. It seems hesitant to follow your commands at first, but once you give it a berry, it hops around happily. Looks like food and safety is all it can really ask for. It performs its tasks with a great bit of haste. Perhaps you can instill a greater sense of loyalty into this beast in the future, but for now, you’ll make do.>Shroomish was assigned to Vad!The tiny bird pokemon pecks at the floor. Khull nods, squatting down and ‘listening’ to its nonexistent chirps. Once the shaman stands up, the Natu flies up and lands on his shoulder. That bird sure is quiet. You’ll just have to put your faith in the shaman for now.>Natu was assigned to Khull!You begin doing some training, but make it a lighter workload than usual. It’s mostly for Shroomish’s sake, as Dratini has far since outpaced him at this point. You and Dratini perform your exercises easily, but Shroomish lags behind quite a bit. After a break, you decide to instead see what it can do.You set up a little ‘sparring’ area. You’re certain Dratini can take whatever the Shroomish can dish out easily, but you make sure to instruct the fungus beast to take it easy at first. The mushroom glows slightly, and green motes of light slowly trickle out of the Dratini. A move that saps stamina, perhaps? Then, you watch as the light glows nearly twice as bright, draining even larger balls of energy from the Dratini. The Dragon pokemon still looks unfazed; his training has made him powerful.The Shroomish then fires seeds at the serpent. The seeds break open immediately upon impact, and seem to grow roots around the affected area. It seems like another of those stamina-draining moves. Next, the mushroom creature shakes slightly, causing spores to fly towards the dragon. The dragon seizes, frozen in place. You notice its scales are shining palely, reflecting an iridescent glint. Marvelous. You take a Cheri berry and feed it to the Dratini, and within a few moments, it can move freely again. Looks like the muscle-relaxant properties of the Cheri berry is not to be underestimated.

>>1930479The Shaman and the Warrior gather around the gathered metal and the Numel. Supposedly, this ore is unrefined, and is essentially just a strange-looking rock. That is, until it is heated. With an experimental gaze, the Numel spit fire from its mouth. The continuous flame burns away at the copper ore until it starts to glow orange. “A good start, but I think it needs to be hotter.” Ghaak states. With that, the warrior instructs his Geodude to pick up the already hot ore piece onto the Numel’s back. The heat of the ore seems to increase until the orange glow becomes much more prominent. This almost seemed like liquid fire!Once that was complete, the Geodude picked up the intensely hot metal. If a normal man picked that up, it’s likely that they would’ve lost their hands. Thankfully, a beast made of earth and stone is resistant to such temperatures. The elemental bends the metal with ease as everyone watches on with awe. Ghaak watches on in focus while Khull instructs and explains this process to a boy named Ritan.Eventually, the metal cools and it still retained its shape: a relatively straight rod. The metal is still not as tough as Hard Stones, but this is a huge step forward. >Researched Copper SmithingYou rally all of the beast tamers together. There’s yourself, Khull, Ghaak, and the two hunters who recently acquired beasts of their own, Rik and Gab. The former is older than your are, and while he doesn’t have the fortitude of body as to when he was in his prime, he has his own wisdom tempered by age. He commands the Pidgey, a small bird with swift speed and keen eyesight. The latter is a little younger than you are. He’s brash and impulsive, but his quick on his feet, and is noticeably quick-footed. He commands the Weedle. It is a small, unassuming yellow larva. It isn’t particularly powerful now, but it may be in the future.With that, you all begin training. Everyone follows your lead, performing physical exercises with their beasts. This improves both the tamer’s and the beast’s physical capabilities, but also has the important effect of strengthening the bond between man and monster. You feel like everyone got a good round of training in there.

>>1930661Hey boss, figure you're off to bed soon. Good morning from round this way. Nice to see the game moving but not too far.
Even from your perch upon the mountain, you can see the dust clouds in the distant steppes to the west. This happens every few years. The Elani have taken to calling it “Beastclash”. Roving herds of Tauros and Bouffalant compete for territory and Miltank. This might be a good opportunity to capture some of these beasts for your own purposes.>Random Event: BeastclashYou delve further into the depths of the caves. Who knows? Maybe you’ll find something interesting. Using one of the Crystal Lamps, you light the way. The strangest thing is that the tunnels begin to grow more uniform and straight. You spot insects made of metal in the distance, chipping away at the rock. Each passage seems to be more and more rounded around the edges. That’s when the earth starts shaking.The rumbling noise begins to grow louder and louder. It’s then that you realize that this is no natural tunnel: this must’ve been created by a beast of some sort! You pick up your Shroomish and sprint back down the way you came. You Dratini follows alongside you as you hear a thunderous roar akin to the grinding of stone directly behind you. You’re suddenly sent flying as you tumble across the cave floor. It seems Dratini pushed you out of the way of certain death.You get your bearings and ready your spear, twirling around to face your attacker. In front of you is a massive metal serpent, larger than you and your own beasts. You have a distinct feeling that your spear isn’t going to pierce its iron hide. It bellows a challenge at you, and you nod, bringing both of your beasts to bear.Your first order is to try and whittle it down, as you find it unlikely that this beast would fall so easily. Your Shroomish uses Leech Seed on its iron carapace, finding its mark within the nooks and crannies. Your Dratini unleashes a blast of its Dragon Rage, the energy seeping deep into it's armor. The Steelix roars in indignation before slamming into the Shroomish. Despite the training you underwent alongside the mushroom beast, it simply could not withstand such a powerful attack. It falls unconscious, leaving it to a duel between it and your Dratini.The Dratini is quick to act once more, slithering underneath a tail swipe and letting loose another ball of blue flames. You see the Steelix grin, and watch as it releases a powerful blast of blue fire from its own mouth. The result is a direct hit, and your Dratini is sent flying backwards, landing at your feet. You run in front of it, spear extended, prepared to defend your companion to the death. The massive metal serpent prepares another ball of energy from its maw. You stand your ground, unyielding. All hope seems lost, when you notice a sudden increase of power from the Dratini behind you. It shines in a bright light, and seems to change its form. You had heard of it happening before, but only now do you see it before your own eyes.Evolution.
>>1930845The already sizable blue serpent seems to grow longer and bulkier. You watch as the point on its forehead shift into a short horn, and its ears begin to grow definitions akin to a bird’s wing. A protrusion grew near the end of its tail, akin to a mace or club. Its eyes are more focused now, and it stands a little bit taller than you. It slithers past you, intent on facing his opponent once more.In a flash, the beast that was once called Dratini rushed forward, slipping past the Steelix’s guard. The blue serpent reels its tail back, performing a somersault in the air before crashing it downwards. A loud clang reverberates around the caverns as the iron carapace gives way. The Steelix slumps on the ground, now defeated. You lean back in awe. To think that beasts could be this powerful. You make a mental note to harvest the remains of that Steelix; perhaps you could use it for future smithing attempts. After gathering your fallen Shroomish, you and Dragonair exit the caverns, immediately collapsing from exhaustion once you reach the village.>Known Pokemon: Mountain Depths>Onix>Steelix>Durant>Dratini has evolved to Dragonair!>Iron Tail has become Iron Crusher(supereffective against steel-types)>Gain: Steelix CarcassYour tribesmen begin to explore the caverns, discovering possible sources of food within. Most notably, there is a possibility of hunting the many bats that dwell within the caves. There isn’t much luck at first, and in the end, bat meat turns out to be leathery and not particularly tasty unless enough spices are added. Still, at least you’ve come to know the types of beasts that live in the cave.>Known Pokemon: Mountain Depths>Zubat>Noibat>Developed Food Source: Bat MeatThe caves are your home, so your tribesmen begin to research the things that are inside. Very little plantlife grows in these dark caverns, but your farmers notice something interesting: the light that the crystals provide can be used to grow berries and other crops. The process appears to be much slower than sunlight, but this is important information to have.>Research: Cavern AgricultureLastly, the three children descended into the Dragon’s Den to perform their rite of passage. Ritan, the smith apprentice, Yana, the daughter of a gatherer, and Kurog, son of a hunter enter the cave. By the time sundown had come, all three returned. They did not return with beasts of their own, but at least they did so alive and mostly unharmed.>Tribe Population: 16 (10 men, 5 women, 1 child)>Tribe Specialty: Warrior (+10 to all Combat rolls)>Food Supply: Decent.

Good night for now, anons.
>>1930849Night Hawthorne, epic evolution scene. I tend to prefer extra light systems with simple roll offs so I don't mind a single roll decider and prefer it to a fully involved battle sequence. I'm all about the narratives.Rest well and wake up refreshed. Thanks for hosting again. Much fun.

>>1930849Holy shit, get that Steelix carcass out of there before the fucking Durants get into it.Next, attempt to gather... tin, since we're in a mountainous environment. ((Mix with copper for bronze.))After that, gather a shit load of tin and copper to smelt so we have enough to armor our troops and Pokemon.
>>1930942Someday we're gonna have armored pokemon and it's gonna be amazing.
>>1930900I strongly support going West. We rolled well on our random event and getting cattle could end our food production needs. Milk cheese beef and trainable pokemon from one move? Omg. Let's make sure we get at least two breeding pairs.
>>1930951>Armored PokemonAagron, my dude.But for real, armored Touros or Bouffelant/Donphan sounds fucking legit.
>>1930942Okay, editing my post.> Gather Steelix carcass before Durants get into it> Gather tin from mountain> Research metallurgy
>>1930992my dude i agree with you with the steelex, but i really think we need to get us some of those miltank, with them we probably wont have to worry about food for a good while.
>>1930849>Gather the Steelix carcass>Check out that Beastclash>Train with ShroomishThe Steelix will be useful, and should be grabbed asap. Tauros, Miltanks and Bouffalants are all useful, both for resources and as fighters. Finally, Shroomish has potential, if we can unlock his potential, he'll be a potent part of our team. Work towards Spore Besides, Dragonair is already plenty strong for now, we can put its training on the backburner for a while.

>>1930992As sick as more advanced metallurgy will be, I think it has to wait for more basic needs like establishing a edible fighting herd. And then we can tip their horns with metal barbs and send them stampeding to our eventual enemies.
How about we use the carcas to make fortifications against wild pokemon or other tribes, use whats left to make weapons?

>>1932286Be well my dude
>>1932286Hope you're okay my guy. We'll be waiting for when you get back.
>>1932286Your first order of business is to bring the Steelix carcass out of the caves. If those metal insects could chew through stone like it was nothing, then it wouldn’t be surprising for them to take the Steelix for themselves. You take Ghaak, as well as a few warriors with you this time. As you expected, you see Durants chewing on the Steelix’s body. Your Dragonair and Ghaak’s Numel make short work of the iron ants. It seems fire and heat is a natural counter to both steel and insect chitin.After you drive the scavengers away, you look to the corpse of the Steelix and wonder how you’re going to bring it up to the main caverns. After much deliberation, all of your strength is needed to pull to body to the surface. You, your beasts, your tribesmen, and their own beasts lash ropes onto themselves to pull the carcass higher up into the caverns. By the end of it, you managed to drag it all the way up to the main cave. All of the warriors are exhausted after the display of teamwork and strength.>Gained: Steelix CarcassA flash of inspiration hits you as you look to your Shroomish. You recall that its spores had some paralyzing properties. Perhaps you can harness some of it for use in your nets? It takes some coaxing for it to produce more spores on its own, but once you put the mushroom beast in direct sunlight and give it a couple berries, it starts producing a good amount. Your tribesmen quickly collect it in earthen pots for later use, and use Cheri berries if it starts to affect them. You briefly wonder if you could get your Shroomish to produce other kinds of spores.>Researched: Paralysis Spore-laced Nets
>>1932873With your new equipment in hand, you explore to the west. These steppes are large and vast. There might be different kinds of beasts that you could find here. But you’re not interested in them right now; you’re here for the Beastclash. All you have to do is follow the dust clouds. Unsurprisingly, you find Tauros and Bouffalant clashing against each other. It appears that they’re fighting for territory. You also find Miltank nearby, spectating the battle. Your tribesmen watch as a Tauros knocks a Bouffalant down. The beast lets out a loud bellowing noise in victory, before moving to a Miltank to claim his ‘prize’. You turn away, looking to the other nearby herds. It seems that they’re so intent on fighting each other, that they will not attack you or your tribesmen as long as you do not directly interfere.After scouting the place out, you move to try and capture a few of these beasts for yourself. Whilst a pair of bulls stand off and do battle, your tribesmen move to capture a pair of Miltank for themselves. They throw the net over the cattle, and they begin to cry out in anger. The Bouffalant gores the Tauros it was battling before charging over to your location. You stand unfanzed, letting it come to you before stabbing it in the throat with your spear. It slumps on the ground, dead. You look over to the Miltank and find them mostly still. It seems the paralysis will work as long as there is ample time for the spores to do their work.Your tribesmen haul the corpses and unconscious cattle back home. You all partake in a great feast, finding the new meat both plentiful and tasty. You know that the Beastclash will be here for a while, so you make a mental note to try and capture some bulls. Mulling over the decision in your head, you know that Tauros don’t exactly get along with Bouffalant, so you’ll probably have to choose one over the other.>Known Pokemon: Western Steppes>Tauros>Bouffalant>Miltank>Two Miltank were captured!

Hey Anons. Dropping by to say that I'm not dead yet. However, it seems I won't be able to post as frequently in the future. I'll try to find a good schedule to do this quest. I don't plan on dropping this quest, as I've had a lot of fun with it so far. But sessions may take longer next time.I'll see if I can run tomorrow, but that really depends on my schedule. Hope you guys understand. Keep an eye out here or on my Twitter to see when I'm running this.https://twitter.com/ShroudedRebirth

>>1951254You turn to one of your foragers, Jeza was her name. She’s a few years older than you are, and is the most physically able of all of the women in the tribe. She used to forage for food around the mountainside, but now that the Cheri berry farm in the village was founded, Jeza tends to the trees. Another woman, Ayle, is much older by comparison. Ayle is Jeza’s mother, and she is generally considered as the tribe’s ‘matriarch’, in the absence of the chieftain’s wife. While she holds no actual political power, she mostly works like the rest of the gatherers. When necessary, she is who the village turns to during childbirth; a midwife of sorts. As chieftain, you leave the Miltank in the care of these women. Both nod, and promise not to let you down.>Miltank was assigned to Jeza and Ayle!>Gained Food Source: Miltank MilkYou decide to explore the Western Steppes some more, figuring that you might find places of interest there. After traveling for some time, you come across a river that seems to go on for miles. This might be useful. Unsurprisingly, Tauros and Boufallant clash against one another for territory here; water is invaluable, after all. Rik, the hunter with the Pidgey brings something to your attention: further down the river seems to be a herd of horses with flaming manes. They’re keeping their distance from you and the Beastclash, but they seem ready to leave at a moment’s notice. It seems all beasts need water; even those born of fire.>Discovered Location: River (Western Steppes)>Known Pokemon: Western Steppes>Ponyta>Rapidash
>>1951379After some time, you decide to get to work on the Steelix’s carcass. What lies inside a beast made of metal and earth? Your tribesmen begin prying the iron plating away with wooden rods, but they break before anything can be done. Most efforts are fruitless until one tribesman peels away a loose metal plate on the monster’s underside with a surprisingly small amount of resistance. A ferrous scent fills the air as the thing is pried away, revealing a set of… strange, rounded objects. There’s a bit of residue on them that resembles sludge.Khull pinches his nose and leans in, examining the strange objects. He then turns to you in surprise. “Chieftain, these are eggs, but not of Onix or Steelix, these are…” He says. Suddenly, there’s shouting from one of the guards near the entrance to the deeper caverns. You can see some of the dull, metallic sheen as beasts emerge from the darkness of the caves.“Durants!” A tribesman shouts as he attempts to stab his spear into the beast, causing nothing but a reverberation of stone on iron to echo across the main cavern. With that, your tribesmen move into position. Your Dragonair uses his Iron Crusher to dispatch of some of the metal insects, while Ghaak’s Numel spits fire and molten rock at the incoming ants. Your Shroomish finds that his spores and grass skills have little effect on these beasts, so it instead opts to fire as many of those parasitic seeds as it can into the swarm. Your other tribesmen do their best, harrying the beasts with monsters of their own. You spot Pidgey and Natu distracting the beasts with quick strikes, while Geodude, Sableye, and even the pair of Miltank take center stage, keeping the swarm’s attention on themselves.Even in the middle of the fight, you manage to spot a few evolutions take place. Most notably, Ghaak’s Geodude evolved into a larger rock spirit, bearing closer resemblance to a man than ever. Rik’s Pidgey became a larger, bird of notable size, and Gab’s Weedle seems to have taken on a cocoon-like shape. You’re glad that your tribe’s beasts are growing stronger, even in the middle of battle. They’ll need this power if they want to survive.After a hard-fought battle, your tribe manages to repel the Durant swarm. Thankfully under your leadership, and due to the tribe’s beasts, you managed to do so with no casualties, though some men did walk away with several injuries. As your men pull the Durant carcasses off to one side, Khull walks up to you with concern. “Chieftain Vad, these Durant will only keep coming. The Steelix is a good source of food for these beasts, and the eggs within it lead a trail right to us… What should we do?”>Steelix Carcass has a clutch of Durant eggs inside. What will you do with them? Destroy them? Cultivate them? Something else?>Gained: Durant Carcasses
>>1951384You take your Shroomish aside for some more training. It couldn’t do much in that last battle, and while you’re aware that some beasts are more effective against certain types of monsters, you’re certain that this one hasn’t reached its full potential yet. You begin bonding with it in glorious training as your Dragonair follows suit. This was not the dragon’s training, this merely kept it from losing his edge.Practicing on the rocks, your fungal friend absorbs and fires seeds in rapid succession. It releases spores of a different color. The vile powder seems to be quite dangerous, though you’re wise enough to avoid touching it. Additionally, it seems to be able to launch a single, strange-looking seed that fills the user with vigor and wakefulness. These might come in handy in the future.Experience and training has made it stronger than it once was. You practice with the spear, and occasionally fight hand-to-hand, jabbing and punching at the open air. Shroomish seems to follow suit, trying to imitate your movements as best as it can. It almost seems funny that such a small creature would try, but then it begins to shine.The light intensifies some more, and in the place of the tiny, mushroom beast is a small(but noticeably taller) bipedal monster. It seems to have short arms, powerful legs, and a long tail. The mushroom cap on its head now resembles a large-brimmed hat. It imitates your combat form once more, now doing so with practiced and intimidating technique. >Shroomish has evolved into Breloom>Breloom learned Poison Powder>Breloom learned Worry Seed>Breloom learned Mach Punch>Tribe Population: 16(10 men, 4 women, 1 pregnant woman, 1 child)>Tribe Specialty: Warrior (+10 to all Combat rolls)>Food: Good.

>>1951388And with that, I'll retire for the night. I'll try running again tomorrow. I'll try to get a Pastebin or GDoc with information on the current tribesmen and discovered locations/resources/technologies. Might be more helpful than reading the arbitrary information given to you at the end of an update, at any rate. I may continue this in a new thread, seeing as we're now on Page 8.
