>>2984921Gotas looked around, taking in this new creation. The boundless forests around him, the twin suns rising over the eastward beach. He found it amusing that they had arisen from a spot like this, like explorers disembarking on a new shore. However the time for metaphor could come later, as for now his host stood before him ready to carry out their god's commands. >ClaimGotas instructs a portion of his Aspirants to disperse into the forests to the West, Northwest, and Southwest to survey this new country and to push towards the western river, as they would find there a source of drinking water and fish.

>>2976614>Name: Diridge - The Hungry and Wanting >Description: The true Diridge is a primordial being of eternal hunger and feasting. Strong and stubborn, he would eat and consume everything in his way, to feed the endless void inside himself. Until one day, he ran into what few gods have ever encountered, nothing. He fled this nothing, time and time again, as his ruinous feasting laid waste to every world he came across. Older than most other gods, he has been forced to learn and overcome many challenges just to survive. To this end, he realized he must not only consume, but also create. Create new things for himself to later consume. To stave off the absence of nothing by creating anything.The Diridge on this Material Plane is not the original one, but more of a proxy, an avatar, of his divine will. Forged from one of his teeth, Diridge mimics his true form. A tall, imposing humanoid composed of divine enamel. His interior is a wormhole, linked to his true form's stomach. Literally dropped down onto the surface of this new world when his true form couldn't be bothered, Diridge is here to do what he does best, with his trademark curmudgeonly attitude.>Domains: Agriculture, Mining, Consumption>Color: #808000 (Olive)>God Attributes: Major: Spirit Minor: Fortitude and Terraforming>Your Minions: The CentaursOriginally a nomadic and barbarous people, the coming of Diridge has brought them together.

>>2984921Covetous stood atop a dune of black sand, looking out over the wastes amidst his trees and his children, taking in the rolling endless sea of grit and strange plants, cloaked in a singular dark tone like an ill omen.Something distinctly felt missing, as if he was out of reach of something intimate. Something like deja-vu enveloped him, eating at his consciousness telling him his situation was *wrong*, something was *wrong*, not knowing what it was.His children were familiar to him, he already *knew* them, and yet...Instinctually, he knew that something had been taken from him, from them, and he felt rage, rage and fear.He already knew what to do, like second nature. He set his children to work, and with an effort he reached out his divine power over the lands before him, phantom sensation reminding him of something he had long forgotten, like a whisper in his mind.The tree split open a sharp, viscious grin. It was time to get to work.>[Claim - DI] 5 Hex (E, W, SW, SE, NW,)>[Develop] HuntingThe children set out to search the black deserts for edible creatures, learning to hunt in groups to entrap and slaughter prey.>[Unit action (Move) - Covetous]>Move 2 EastThe god picked a direction that felt right to him, and set out with a few eager younglings.

Belweir bobbed carelessly through the trees, floating along lazily and enjoying the feel of the light gleaming through his transparent body, inside of which danced a hundred pulsing, multicolored lights he called "thaumites". The lights weren't the only thing that filled Belweir though; he brimmed and vibrated with excitement! The world was new! New and empty and waiting to be filled with cool and pretty things! [COMMUNICATE]"HELLO, PLACE! I'M GONNA MAKE THINGS!"[DEVELOP+DI+75 POPULATION]He cast his eyes to the forest, and a broad field of crystals blossomed forth from the ground in a large clearing, and many more crystal clusters sprung forth from around the roots of nearby trees. The gleaming god hovered through this new vitreus, spinning slowly as many motes of light leapt from his body to the surrounding formations. These were now homes for Belweir's thaumites, and they brought a beautiful excitement to the quiet forest.[DEVELOP] Pinewood stockStill gleaming with many lights inside him, the big crystal twirled away to explore other things. He wondered what exactly these trees were? Many pieces of them could easily be found on the ground... He was sure that they wouldn't mind if he asked his thaumites to collect some!

One lies flat, and holds many intricately carved symbols on it, while the other stands a foot high but only 2 inches thick.

And out of the darkness Azraelius emerges. The Sefari fall to their knees. Their inability to cope with Azraelius's intense aura is noted. Fear and respect is noted in their eyes. "Rise my children" Azraelius says. "There is work to be done."

>>2991584>>Diridge - The Hungry and Wanting>Claim [DI]: NW, NE, E, SW>Develop: Instruct the Centaurs to begin gathering various cultivatable plants for initial consumption, and growing. From both the plains and the forests if they can.>Unit action [God Unit]: Move down along the southern coast. At the forest's edge, two centaur tribes faced off. This stretch of coastline was a point of contention between the northern tribe and southern tribe. Each wanting more grazing and hunting lands, they had brought their full force to bare. Before blood could be spilt, however, a white object unceremoniously slammed down into the ground a ways off from their chosen battlefield. Calling a temporary truce, they decided to investigate.What emerged from the crater was a humanoid, standing roughly a head or two taller than the largest of the centaurs. Cold glistening eyes peered out, and surveyed his new land. When the warchief of the northern tribe tried to wrestle him, the humanoid simply threw him off. When the southern tribe tried to take advantage of the distraction and shoot an arrow at the northerners, the humanoid interposed himself. Driving the hostilities down simply by sheer will and fortitude, the humanoid commanded the centaurs to listen. Named Diridge, he would show them new strength, new power, and new possibilities they'd never before considered. And if they refused, he'd eat them all. With little they could actually do to the humanoid, the two tribes hesitantly agreed to the pact. With a wave of his hand, the land bent to his will. He instructed the Centaurs to begin preparation for a proper farm, to grow in bulk the scant crops they could find on their migrations. While they began their gathering, Diridge took a small contingent of centaurs to show him his new domain.
>>2991584[claim] Now claim the hexes to the north and east as well. More shrublands means more food, right?[develop] The Swine are known for a number of things, but agility is not one of them. One swine, frustrated by a white-tailed rabbit's ability to evade his hungry maw, picks up a rock and throws it at the offending creature as hard as he can. He dines on rabbit-roast that night, and others are quick to start learning from his example. (Develop Hunting & Unlock Throwing Weapons to research next turn. Or the reverse, whichever complies with the Tech Tree.)
>>2991584Alpha Oybabtu was impressed with the variety within the land. Though crossing the mountains had been done with ease, Other Oybabtu could not. Instructions were given on how to explore the east Grassland and circle northwards around to the Shrublands north of the mountains. A few Oybabtu explored the western Saltflat as well.>[Claim 5 hex] Encountering rain, Alpha Oybabtu decided that the Oybabtu needed protection from such weather in order to stay healthy. The trenches filled with beige Dust in the Saltflats were lovely, but Oybabtu needed more. Alpha Oybabtu moved down to the western, newly claimed Saltflats, watching Oybabtu play in freshly trenched Dust. Noticing the Pure Salt, Alpha Oybabtu remarked on it's flavor, it's abrasive qualities, and considered it's possible uses. Perhaps it could be used for Medicine to help the Unhealthy or perhaps it could be used to help erode matter from stone mountains.>[Develop] Knowledge Tech->Research SaltI want to develop mining and other tech to build a proper settlement. But Salt is my only resource, so I'm searching new land and for new ways to use Salt. Salt Sandblasting! Probably not.>[Unit Action - Move - Alpha Oybabtu]Western Saltflat

Rolled 2, 7, 3, 5 = 17 (4d10)>>2991584 Over the frozen tundra the One wreathed in colored bands of light begins to swirl. Criss-crossing arms of aurora in the sky unravel and dispel inward, revealing the shining core beneath. Almost as quickly as the world had turned to darkness before, now it filled with light once again. Or, perhaps, this world was first experiencing light, the One Who Knows did not know this time. His sight, damaged and incomplete, was almost useless. Fortunately, He didn't need it to survey the simple landscapes below. Swathes of white flow in every direction, some ending against spires of grey and others against an endless flat of deep-blue. Somehow, Onus continued to exist. Despite the shattered memories of "recent" events that elude Him from within, and against the overwhelming likelihood of being consumed, He had once again taken shape. Though, He seemed a bit light on shape. Had He always been bodiless like so? Regardless, things did not feel as usual. This world was full of power, much greater than His meager bit. Mortals prance about the ice below, and mortals don't exist without immortal guides. These ones seemed to be unclaimed, simple fishermen living out of holes hollowed into snow. Ignorant but alive, they would do well for now. He would need to act fast to make sure the leverage against potential opponents is in place, and He knew the perfect way. A man stood atop the snowy precipice, taking in the view of the sea in its fullest. Life was dull, but little things made it worthwhile. This night, however, the Gods had a different plan. As he turned around to return to the warmth of the fire, a vision accosted him. For a moment, there was a great building of stone and wood and other materials beyond his understanding. It rose high into the sky, roof spiraling upward to point towards that bright light amidst the stars. It's flaming beacon a sign of hope to weary sailors; thousands of scrolls ensconced within the expansive halls. As quickly as it came the vision shattered, leaving this man to gaze at that only thing that remained, a great burning star over head, from which aurora emerged to drape the northern horizon. Confused and bewildered, and beyond freezing, he turned tail to run and carry his vision to any that would hear it. >Develop w/ DIA great library is erected in an effort to please the mysterious God that had taken notice of the simple tribe. It's not quite as magnificent as foretold, but it would serve well as a temple and haven for that most valuable resource of all: knowledge.>>for lack of resources and DI, I must forfeit my minor action this turn.

>>2991586The thaumites' crystalline homes were pretty, Belweir thought to himself, but they were missing something. Something that seemed like it might be important... What was it? He hovered above the field of lights, gazing down and wondering what it was he was forgetting?>[DEVELOP] Pinewood researchAs he tried to think, the pointy god's lazy drifting brought him near to the pile of fallen twigs and small branches being carried in by several of the light sprites, who had used their crystal control to separate a number of ground crystals and were using them to carry the forest's castoffs. Seeing the wood pile growing ever closer, Belweir lost track of his thoughts and floated to it, seeking out the secrets of this new material!>[DEVELOP+DI] Helios's giftEventually, some of the little motes of light began to blink rapidly. It didn't take long before many of the other little motes joined them, and before long almost the entire crystal field became a nauseating multicolor strobe light. About this time, the little lights still within Belweir's body began pulsing similarly, and the distracted god spun around to see his friends trying to speak with him. In an instant, the puzzled deity remembered the thing that his creation lacked: sustenance! With a laugh, he willed the ground in the middle of the field to surge upward and produce a single large, dark-colored crystal that sucked in a great deal of the light that touched it! The thaumites responded by immediately leaping from their crystals into this large one, and their hurried pulsing calmed as they absorbed the crystal's harvested light energy. Sated, the thaumites meandered their way back to their homes, leaving their benefactor to resume pondering a pile of sticks.
>>2991584Gotas watched as his followers set about running down and tearing apart the Sirvee with nothing more than their bare hands. He shook his head, this was not a hunt. This was barbarism, there was no beauty in it. He intended to set off on a journey to sate his own curiosity about this land they had found themselves in, but first he would have to set right his wayward children.>Develop Roseberry Branch GatheringGotas assembled his followers near a roseberry and addressed them."Sons, daughters. I intend to leave you for a short time, to search for new hunting grounds towards our west. However, before I do that I must show you how to live not as uncultured brutes, but as the noble hunters I created you to be." With this, Gotas drew his saber and cut down a few branches from the nearby tree. A smidge dramatic he thought, especially as they didn't have such tools for their own quite yet, but it would help sit the point in their minds. "A hunter's hands are not his tools, rather they facilitate his tools. The wood of these trees is an important start, and we will need much of it in the coming months. We will begin with the branches, a reasonable goal for your hands alone.">Develop Stone Tools using Rocks, Roseberry Branches, and DI to generate Animal SinewGotas stood aside, letting the crowd descend on the nearby trees. While they worked he drew his saber again, and began to sharpen a stone on its edge. Once they had each taken a branch he gathered their attention again. "Bring me the spoils of your latest hunt," Gotas commanded. The aspirants obliged, carrying over a few Sirvee they had planned to save for later. He studied them, his mind already full aware of the materials he could draw from it. There was not much sinew, but he could exert some of his will to multiply it to a sufficient amount 'til his journey's end. The voids of his skull where his eyes should be flashed an unearthly gold, and a large portion of dried sinew appeared on the ground nearby, enough so that every Aspirant could make a single tool. "The hunt's true spoil is not a full belly, that is just a convenient happenstance. The real treasure..." Gotas took his branch, the sharpened stone, and a portion of the sinew and put them together, making a simple stone spear. "...is progress." The Hunter then set the spear down, and sauntered off, walking westward. As he reached the edge of the clearing he turned again to his followers. "What I have made is but one of many possibilities. I trust that you shall be worthy to discover the rest, and bid you adieu for a time." He took of his hat, bowed to his Aspirants, and left them to do the rest.>Unit Action Move GotasGotas moves 3 hexes west across the river, and unless he spots something interesting, sees the land of another god, or sees a biome other than forest to divert to he continues west another 3 hexes.

Within his core formed a great writhing mass, alive, but not containing soul. In a great and violent act, he regurgitated the still growing mass in a spewing flood of tendrils and flesh, splattering and sliding across the sandy forests. When it was all over and Covetous had wiped the last bits from his maw and resumed his noble posture, he took note of his new creation. It had almost immediately taken root in the soil, burrowing deep, taking nutrients from sun and soil. Within a time, it eventually expanded to cover most of his territory, stopping at where his divine presence ended. >[Develop] Creep rooting.As the days passed and the Creep spread, the Gaping learned to adapt to the fleshy substance they now shared home with.

Unless something catches my eye, like a new biome or something.Diridge marched onward, being lead by the southern centaurs as they toured him his new domain. The first thing to catch Diridge's unblinking gaze, was the fact that he easily kept up with the equine creatures. The centaurs, he noticed, walked like infants. Their gaits bumbling, footing unsure. They did not rush forward like glorious coursers, or stand firm like a sturdy work horse. For now, it allowed him to keep up pace with ease, but it would surely be a liability in the future. Upon entering the forests, Diridge commanded his people to begin the gathering of its precious wood. The centaurs did not immediately see the point of such an action, they could not eat it like the seeds and plants they had gathered earlier. But Diridge's command was resolute, he would show them how to control things far beyond what they had before.

He called out in Godstounge to the creatures, and hopefully their master "Hail to you brother or sister, I am Gotas the Hunter.

The Aspirants worked fruitlessly for a time, unable to replicate the spear that their master had made. Eventually, one Aspirant Scout grew fatigued and went to the river to draw a drink. Upon kneeling down and washing their face in the water, the Aspirant noticed stones lining the riverbed. Quickly they realized that this was the puzzle piece that had been missing in their attempts. They rushed back to the assembled host, arms full of as many rocks as they could gather.>Develop Stone Tools using Rocks, Roseberry Branches, and Animal SinewAs the twin suns set in the west, Gotas broke into the clearing that the Aspirants had been using as a place of rest since they had arisen from the dust. He was greeted by his children, most wielding crude, yet functional, stone spears. A few he noticed did not make spears, but had instead experimented with making tools to gather rock and wood easier. If his skull had allowed him to smile, Gotas would have beamed a grin of fatherly pride. His children had passed his test, and were ready to reach further heights.

"My children you are unique creatures and the way you feed yourselves is unique aswell. Flame sefari you need not look further then basking yourselves in sunlight to seek nutrients. Similar to plants you feed off light. Ice sefari you have a different path. The only way to feed yourselves is by draining the lifeforce off of living things." As Azraelius leaves, several flame sefari bask in sunlight and feel revitalized and renewed. Returning to their usual energetic ways. The ice sefari go touch plants, and trees. They begin to feel life flowing in the plants and trees. A lifeforce. A thirst arises in them. They begin to steal that lifeforce. Consuming it. Suddenly they feel an all consuming ecstasy. They can actually feel again, they haven't felt like this since back when they were flame sefari! No, this...this feeling is much better than anything that they felt as flame sefari. They feel life in them again. A purpose to move and live again. Suddenly the feeling stops. The ice sefari notice that the plants and trees they touched are dead.

Stones carved with other stones, and attached to carved dark wooden handles made from retrieved branches of the tall curling trees. It wasn't ideal by father's standards, but he approved of their creative spirits nonetheless.

Then either NE or NW based on whatever looks cooler out there.Diridge continued his tour. Laying claim to some of the northern tribe's land, and the lone peaks standing resolute over the sea. As he passed by his lands, he noticed a couple of centaurs fiddling with the sticks they were tasked with gathering. One even picked up a stone and stab it into the stick, but it would not stay. Diridge sighed, once again impressed with their ability to overlook that which was so innate in their own forms. The ground shook as he approached the pair of centaurs. Both looked up in fear when He towered over them both on the ground. Diridge bent down, face meeting the one so clever to grab the rock, and yanked some of his tail hair out. It yelped in pain, and dropped the stick and stone. Diridge grabbed the centaur before it was spooked away, and showed him the art of crafting. Using a series of knots and lashings, Diridge fashioned a crude semblance of an axe. Handing it back to the Centaur, Diridge said they were blessed with many secrets they had yet to uncover. He ushered the centaur to return to his people, and share with them the ability to create with their own two hands.Done with babysitting, Diridge went to explore the northern reaches of the land. On his travels through the forests, a particular grove turned darker than the night sky. The same absence that one would see down Diridge's own throat, a void of all things. Out of it came the one called... Azraelius. While their meeting was short, both nodded in mutual acknowledgement of their divine natures. The time-tested signifier of not wanting to immediately kill the shit out of the other.

Where the settlement will be.>Also give a quick Communication with Azraelius as we pass by.>Develop [DI]: Roseberry Wood Logging. Using stone axes, and Diridge's guidance on which trees are optimal for harvesting, and which are better left to grow for next season, The Centaurs begin collecting larger quantities of wood.>Develop: Establish Settlement of [Statherós]. Location on Map. Using the newly acquired roseberry wood logs, the capital of the centaurs is established.Communication: As Diridge returned to his lands, he passed by the one known as Azraelius once more. "In mutual respect, I permit you to scout the edge of my Domain, but on the condition that you do not enter it, knowingly or unknowingly. Until we can establish a clearer sense of ownership, I'd like to not risk you compromising my position. I hope your scouting ventures prove fruitful."At the end of his tour of the northern centaur's land, Diridge returned back to his origin. As he approached, he saw more and more centaurs wielding stone tools. To his surprise, they had even taken the initiative. Still following the orders to gather roseberry wood, some centaurs had begun to use their axes to chop actual trees down, rather than simply pick up sticks. Diridge, for once, was impressed, and in an unusually amiable mood, explained to the centaurs how to better select candidates for logging. The mature trees with hardy heartwood and the aged trees with rotting cores, to be harvested for wood and clearing the way for new trees. The saplings and young growths to be spared, and left to grow into grander and more resourceful trees.Helping carry the fallen trees back to their central plains, several logs under each arm, Diridge issued the construction of the first Centaur Settlement. Sturdy and spacious shelters were required for the centaurs: Thick walls on the outside to keep out the winds with 2 major doors on opposite ends; small, individual stalls for sleeping lined the two longer walls; and a large open area in the middle for general recreation and relaxation. These communal longhouses would be the most frequent structures in Statherós, along with various storehouses for food and lumber, and toolshacks to store their gear not far off from each longhouse. Dedicated defecation areas would also be designated a reasonable distance away from any longhouse or foodstore, to prevent horse patties from getting everywhere. While proper roads were not yet developed, small worn paths quickly make their way from the entrance of every longhouse to each other, stitching across Statherós and branching outwards to the forests.
