>>3494872>[Gotas - Communicate]Gotas entered this forest, teeming with more green life than he had seen since, well, ever. It was a natural forest by no means. He could feel the divine energy in this place, steeped in every leaf and root of every tree. He exerted some influence over the land, but this was something far beyond that. To the North-East his instincts revealed a large mass of floral life, imbued with a spark of divinity like his Aspirants. Shouting in that direction, he extends his usual cordial greeting. "Hail, brother or sister. I am Gotas, Lord of The Hunt. Who might you be and what control do you exert over these lands?">[God Move]: Move SW, SE, SW, SE, SW, SEHis communication with the locals done, Gotas thought it prudent to fully trace Azraelius's lands before wandering off into the complete unknown.>[Unit Move - Aspirant Pathfinders]: Move SW, W, SWThe scouting party braced themselves, they were in foreign territory and were uncertain of what awaited them in these lands touched by another god. Yet they were confident that their hunter's instinct would carry them through safely.>[Communicate - Aspirant Pathfinders]The Aspirant scouts encounter strange, four-legged men tending to plots of grass. Something the hunters found endlessly curious. They introduced themselves as Aspirants of the Eternal Hunt, and their leader as Kul'sah, He Who Walks Many Paths. The scouts asked to speak with the leader of these beings, in hopes of receiving a message to take home to their god.>[Claim]: Claim the Mountain NE of the one I just claimed, as well as the forest SW of it.Sul'vir continues to practice being a catalyst for Gotas, marking further lands as territory for the Aspirants. Sadly, this meant he could not direct the people as fast as he would have liked. A waste he would have avoided if the situation was not so pressing.>[Develop] Hunting + Stone Tools: Pelt GatheringAs for what he could do now though, using a few docile beasts as a means to illustrate, Sul'vir teaches the Aspirants how to hunt their prey without damaging the pelt, and how to cleanly remove them using the tools they had. A further refinement of the most noble of arts. Their master would be pleased, and Sul'vir knew of many things they could do with this new resource.

Far taller than any of those around him, seemly made of some off-white substance the Aspirates liken to a beast's tooth, and meeting their upturned gazes with an endless maw; Diridge introduces himself and his people, the Centaurs. Impressed that sapient begins outside of his domain once again walk the soils, Diridge tells Kul'sah to send his regards to their own god. Though, he also stresses to the "One Who Walks Many Paths", that the paths to the south and west are currently closed. The south and west are his domain all the way to the sea, and he'd want to speak with their god before allowing free reign on his freshly tilled soil. Diridge does tell them they can head further North through the abandoned domain to find another, one of trees and plants. Diridge then excuses himself, while remaining in the region to prevent further passage into his land.One of the centaurs offers the pathfinders some fresh apples before heading back to work.The Centaurs have been growing the grass from the ground for a while now, under the direction of their god. It has grown taller and thicker than the untended grass, but for what purpose? The ones in charge of tending the crop think they could just pluck it from the ground around them. Then, one day, a board centaur farmer begins to twist and braid the long strands of grass around her fingers. She braids it long and thin, adding more to it as she watches the men work and sweat in the fields. When one of the youngin's comes running by with two more on his tail, he makes to snag the braided grass from his older sister. To both of their surprise, the thin cordage holds, pulling the boy back a bit, before it snaps. Enamored by this new toy, the three children ask the centauress how to make more.The training grounds are fresh and unkempt. Under the veteran rangers' and elders' watchful eyes, the two perspective teams of rangers being the work of camp maintenance and leave-no-trace. After the grounds have been brought up to standard, they begin to train and duel with one another, until each group is refined into a hardworking team. As they train together, a sense of both comradery and rivalry grows. While they all feel a part of the same large group, each seems to refer to themselves as more than just 'rangers'. After many bickerings and back and forths, they eventually distinguish each one with a number. Nigen(1), Qojar(2), and Gurban(3).
>>3495238>[Communicate - Diridge]Kul'sah nods in understanding to Diridge's polite dismissal, "Understood Lord Diridge. Our master has set off westward so it is likely he has encountered these forest dwellers. Should your people have any business with us we reside in the large grove northeast of here. We shall inform our hunters so they know you are friends. Wait for them to guide you to safe passage, we have set many traps." The scout captain then questions the farmer who gave the odd red things to them. "What curious prey did you hunt to obtain these? I have seen nothing of their like in our lands."
>>3495270>[Communicate - Gotas]The centaur has a hearty chuckle at the thin little creature before him. "Perhaps you should look up more often." The centaur gestures to the captain for the spear in his hand. Taking it, he trots over to a nearby Applewood Tree and pierces an apple from its branches. Returning the spear and apple, and gesturing to the tree, "This is the mighty prey we hunt for the sweet taste of an apple. You should try it some time, you look like you're starving."

Bloodied sword in one hand and the severed head of the high priest of Onus in the other.Below a dozen chosen stood within a horde of hundreds of chanting fanatic slaves, all were bloodied from the murders and sacrifices that had taken place mere moments ago.Xayver held the head high and the chanting grew. “SEREGOST!

Seregost has revealed himself to us and through us a thousand twisted blessings will spread to the races, to the land, and we shall live as gods ourselves, once Sanctum claims all!” Xayver thumped his breastplate as the cheers grew.“Raise his monuments, spread his domain, fall to your knees and pray for his favour, HAIL SEREGOST!”From beyond in the dark annuls of Sanctum, Seregost looked through Xayver’s eyes seeing everything he saw and through his new herald he admired.

One of the first things they create with said ropes are nets and lassos. It takes a few tries, and more than a little swearing from Diridge before they are able to get it right. Sometimes the centaurs get their hands tied, or they end up netting themselves by accident. Eventually, nets and lassos are spreading across the city and beyond.Soon after the nets and lassos are made, Diridge instructs the centaurs to go out and try to gather animals from every corner of his domain. With a combination of sheer determination, clever tactics, and centaur fitness, they bring a handful of each species back to the capital. Diridge's teeth seem to form an ever growing grin when they finally return. Beady eyes shining in gluttony. (Totally not smiling at OP3's need to make the fauna expansion now.)

Using innate knowledge, Alpha Oybabtu instructed the Oybabtu to forge large hammers out of the metal with sharp picks on the other end to be used for mining, construction, and forging other metal tools as well. This useful tool was named Mountain Mattock and the Oybabtu made as many as they could.>[Develop] Production Tech-> Mountain Mattock I want mechanical justification for proper mining and fluff for forging. Also, big metal hammers.Having proper tools, the Oybabtu carved the mines out with care and precision. But Alpha Oybabtu felt it was not enough.He wanted the Great Mine to be more than just where salt and ore are dug up, dust is created, Oybabtu slept in ball pits, tools are forged, and crackers are baked.It should be a home. Stretching out with every bit of power and divine influence that could be mustered, Alpha Oybabtu Converted the Great Mine into a true settlement. There smooth hallways, large spaces for storage, and comfortable places for Oybabtu to work, play, carve, and eat crackers. It was truly converted into a great settlement.>[Develop + DI] Settlement
>>3512676>>Diridge - The Hungry and Wanting>[Communicate - Gotas]After directing the Rangers to begin their mission, Diridge made to meet the god halfway. "Hmmmm, a pleasure. You may call me Diridge." The tall god hardly moving save for his jaws and a slight bowing of the head. "Your... Aspirants were civil enough, though they seem to lack in the finer details of looking up. Not that my own flock doesn't lack in similar capacities." Diridge continued, casting a disparaging look across the surroundings. "I suppose I should welcome you to my land, seeing as you are the first to stick around."
>>Seregost>[Claim]: 2 Hex’s west of capitalReports from the Chosen out hunting out to the west detail something of interest. The Aphotic blade dispatches a small war party to investigate.>[Develop]: Put the slaves to work constructing a Granery for the nearby Barlow grasses.While Xayver and the Aphotic blade would sooner be carrying out conquest and sacrifices the slaves still require a sustainable food supply.
>>3516568>[Communicate - Diridge]"Yes, the first to stick around indeed. I have traveled through the domains of three gods prior to yourself, and of them I feel signs of divine activity from only one. Something curious is going on, and I cannot quite put the pieces together. I have a great many questions about the nature of our existence here, but I'm not sure where to find the answers." Gotas pauses to allow Diridge to answer, adjusts his stance to a more neutral one, and resumes. "Anyway, on to more normal topics. How is your little slice of the mortal world treating you? Given that you've said I'm the first to stick around I assume you've developed mostly unimpeded?"
>>3518878"I'm afraid you will get no speculation from me. You do say that there is one other that yet lives? Where might that have been?" At the mention of the second question, Diridge stands a little straighter, and raises his head, "Were you not so at ease, I would have taken that as a threat. Seeing that you yourself had to go out of your way to find others, I'd assume you are equally free of distractions. Suffice to say, this land is fruitful, though not without substantial effort on my own part."
>>3521916"Aye, it is the treefolk north of my domain. Not to be confused with the plantfolk, I see no signs of divinity from them. A black mass of tissue covers the land they control, makes a terrible mess even on my boots. I can feel the borders of their land meeting mine in more places by the year. I suspect that if you were to visit my domain you would cross their new holdings. As for if I have developed unimpeded, you and I have received similar blessings there. My forests are flush with prey, and have resources aside to aid my children in ever more advanced techniques. I am incredibly proud of how far they've come in such short time, they have taken to my path well." Gotas gives the closest equivalent to a smug smile a skeleton can give. "Pray though, don't tell them I told you that. I fear it would go to their heads."
>>3521920"Aye, I find it easier to motivate my own by telling them what they could have, not by what they had. It has at least encouraged them to begin thinking for themselves. To an extent.""My scouts will run across the black mass soon enough then. I suppose, if it interests you, you can see to the south of my domain. There has been some odd happenings there, perhaps an overthrowing of one to another. Though it has not seemed to be any livelier than before."
