Your people is starving! They are growing uncontent and the order or the land has gone down. Many refuse to work, and some become sick from malnutrition.

Wrin gave birth to a healthy son.

Disaster! Witt died giving birth to a healthy son. The royal family mourned the loss but handled the death well.

Your research has been going slower due to the fact that your population is starving.

Research [Domestication 2]:60
Order: 8
[168/168]
-Witt's son, Kalesh, is to be treated with great respect by all Reigians. This is because his mother died during child-birth, meaning the gods deemed him more important than his mother and should be treated as a god.
-Witt's first mate, however, is to be killed. His purpose was to breed with the heiress and his seed killed her. His execution is to be by drowning and should be done at night.
-Wrin's son, Upar, is to be raised by Krith.
-Kalesh is to be raised by Hett.
-Wrin is to try for another child with both of her mates.
DEATH TO DAESH! In solidarity with Rojava!

Amorusk – Season of the Leaves (Turn 7)

A large bonfire had been lit at the center of the Amorcian capital in celebration of the birth. All members of the tribe, both within the village and from the surrounding villages had been given the day off and invited to the large celebration that had been in the works for some time. Originally, the celebration was meant to recognize the birth of Resha’s child, but a horrible event had postponed the celebration. It was only to be brought back to life following the birth of Kelem’s healthy baby boy. He had been named Aukom by both his mother and father. Aukom Shamir, the first grandson of Anesh Shamir.

Anesh couldn’t have been more proud. The death of Sukla and Resha’s child had been a horrible scar, not only on him, but his immediate family and tribe members. It had affected them all greatly. And that was probably why so much had been put into this current celebration. The good news had swept through the tribe and Anesh wanted to capture that energy. Things had seemed negative as of late, and this was the perfect opportunity to turn things around.

“You know I could not be prouder of you,” Anesh said, loosely wrapping his arms around his daughter and his grandson, who was resting in her arms. A large smile stretched across his face as he gazed into the closed eyes of the newborn. Bakvi approached them, coming from the large bonfire with a smirk on his face.

“Bakvi!” Anesh said, turning his attention to him. When he got close enough, Anesh grabbed the man and pulled him close so that their heads touched. “You have brought me much honor with this child, and a son no less! Do well to take care of him. He may—no WILL—be very important to this tribe.

“I will do as you ask,” Bakvi said in his ever obedient tone.

“Good man.”



Kala sat next to Nidok, looking at the large celebration that was taking place. She too had been overcome with joy at the good news. Her daughter had entered the next stage of her life into motherhood and this celebration acknowledged that.

Kala glanced over to her son, who seemed detached from everything. Nidok stared into the bonfire as if absorbed in deep thought. He had been like this for some time, which was strange for him. Normally he was much noisier, constantly asking questions about nearly everything. Normally, it took a great deal of energy to calm him down, because when he came across a question, he latched onto it and wouldn’t stop until he had been satisfied. But now, he had been quiet.

Maybe he’s matured? Kala thought to herself, although she seriously doubted it. Something had been ailing her son, and yet she hadn’t found out what.

“Nidok,” she said, trying to shake him out of his blank stare. He closed his eyes for a moment before turning to look at his mother. “What’s wrong? You have hardly been yourself lately.” she trailed off, trying to read her son’s expression.

“Nothing…”

“Do not lie. I can tell when you are lying. I am your mother after all,” she let out a sigh. “You disappear for hours and return without saying a word. You’ve barely eat the food that’s placed before you, and you haven’t asked me any questions as of late.” Nidok sighed himself and turned to look the other way.

“I guess you’re right.” He said this as if he had been caught and was disappointed that he had gotten himself in this situation. He looked around the bonfire before them several times and took in a deep breath as he prepared to launch into a deep explanation.

“I’ve been hiking up to the top of the hills and looking out onto the village early every morning to watch the sunrise. I will stay up there for some time afterwards, contemplating the questions that have been bothering me. People have been coming to me with their problems, and there are many that I have not been able to answer. This bothers me. I used to think that everyone else had the answers and that I needed to learn them, but now it seems that people know as little as me. In some cases, they seem to know less…” Kala could tell that this deeply troubled her son, but before she could say anything he continued.

“Lately, I have been thinking about the tribe and our family. For the most part it seems that only bad things have been visited upon us. The harsh winter that took many lives, the loss of Bakvi’s arm, and the death of Sukla and Resha’s unborn. This greatly depressed me.” These were strange things to hear from someone so young, and they took Kala by surprise. True enough, she had often thought the same things, but only for a moment. Normally, she would push these thoughts away, thinking of them as negative.

“Nidok, there are good and bad things in the world. Sometimes, it may seem that the bad things are much greater than they actually are. Look around you! There is a large celebration thanks to new life within our tribe!” Kala said, trying to cheer her son up.

“I have thought of this, but I can’t get past the feeling that it is all for naught. True, the birth of Aukom is a great thing, but what will his life be like? He may die tomorrow for all we know.” Nidok said this in a low tone.

“Do not say such things!” Kala said, suddenly angry that her son would even think this, especially during the birthday celebration. “It is bad to think this!” Nidok simply stared at his mother.

“Life is suffering,” is all that he said before standing up and walking away from the celebration.

-Everyone prepares for the coming winter. They do not want this winter to be the same as the last one.




Layout of Amorusk
A majority of the people within Amorusk live along the coast. For the longest time, Amorcian’s relied on the ocean as their source of food. Fishing and scavenging the beaches for oysters were their main source of sustenance. Because of this, most of the villages within Amorusk are along the coast, near sources of fresh water. The largest village, Amor, serves as the capital of the Amorcian people, simply because this is where the chieftain and his family reside. At the same time, this village has the most people and is the most heavily populated area for many thousands of miles (at least to the knowledge of the Amorcian people).

With the invention and adoption of hunting, and the use of animals as both a source of food and clothing, more villages were established deeper inland and away from the ocean. These villages still stayed close to sources of fresh water. Eventually, these villages became more developed as fur became more of a necessity to the Amorcian people. This change was gradual and not very noticeable, as a majority of the people stayed along the coast. At the same time, most of the population growth occurred there as well, and didn’t greatly affect the villages established further inland.

Winters Embrace



The human tribes that call the southern lands their home thank the spirits,
as the southern winds embraced rather than assailed them.
Is it perhaps guilty conscience for the cold terror of last year?
The ways of the spirits are mysterious;
at times entrancing, at times heart-wrenching.
The humans can only hope for the spirits good will to not be quelled in the near future.

Kalesh has been proclaimed to be a god, something which most people have accepted. He has allready been subject of quite some worship.

Ranh was executed, as is tradition.

A few people have started to preach against your familys leadership. An uproar might be brewing.

Your research has been going slower due to the fact that your population is starving.

Zia gave birth to a healthy baby girl!

A lot of food is produced, which is joyous to the people, but the bad means for storing and conserving it leads to a lot of food getting spoiled. This food is thrown away and is therefor completely wasted.

Solutria - Year 2, Season 4

Overview

WP (416 /416)
10 - Culture
10 - Expansion
200 - Food Production
20 - Healthcare
10 - Maintenance
106 - Research [Fishing 2]
10 - Research [Food Preservation 1]

- Zia's baby is named Kidagakash.

- They research ways of preserving food (new skill). Of the methods they try are smoking it on the fire and salt drying it with sea salt from the ocean. (I will leave it up to Huckbuck if any of these even work. But I am putting points to start research it, even if I can't buy it this turn). As for the requirements for this new skill i thought it maybe could be Herb Lore + Fire Making + Fishing. Its up to you if that can be added as a new skill.

Amorusk – Season of the Snow (Turn 8)

Nidok sat on a stone in his regular resting spot overlooking Amor. A cool breeze came out of the south, a constant reminder of the coming winter. Yet this breeze was not as cold as Nidok remembered. Indeed, most of the villagers had been talking about it as well. Everyone was hoping that this was a good omen of the things to come.

Light was creeping over the horizon in the east, sending rays of light and warmth stretching across the landscape. The first couple of times Nidok had done this, it had been during the day after he had gotten his chores out of the way. But he had gotten more disconnected from these things as time went on. For the past couple of weeks he had been traveling up to the top of the hill before the sunrise. It offered him a nice escape, and allowed him to get out of the household before the others arose to harass him with requests and questions about what he was going to do.

Normally when Nidok sat at the top of the hill, he would rest his eyes and sit in silence, taking everything in. But there was something different about this day. Perhaps it was the mild breeze, or the rising sun. In all probability, it was probably a combination of both that caused him to stretch beyond the regular thinking patterns that had absorbed him since he started meditating on the hill. Whatever it was, something clicked inside of him and launched him down a new path that he had not explored before.

Originally, Nidok has started this with an open mind and much hope. Yet this quest had been born out of depression, so he had not been that surprised when he had sunk into a stupor after thinking about all of the negative things in life. The fact that he had been pondering on these thoughts and moping around Amor with this negative attitude had slowly started to disgust him. Not only was he disgusted with the state of the world, but he had become disgusted with the state of mind that he had adopted. He was constantly negative, and it had taken a toll on him. But on this morning, there was hope, similar to the winds from the south.

“I do not have to be negative,” Nidok said aloud to no one in particular, as there was no one around to hear him. “Things in life may be bad, but there must be a way to correct this,” he mentioned aloud, using the words as a sort of boost to his thought process. “If I can realize there is a problem, then there must be a way to escape it. There must be a way to correct all of the negative things in this world.” This was a new realization in and of itself, yet it led Nidok to another obstacle. What was the answer to this new problem?

“Guess I’m just going to have to think about that,” Nidok mumbled to himself as he settled back down into deep thought.



Kala looked up at the hill that she knew her son must be on. Ever since her discussion with him at the birthday celebration, she had been worried about him. A negative energy had taken him over, and it was slowly infecting the rest of the household. Anesh seemed to be unaffected, though, as he stayed focus on the birth of his new grandson and the fact that he had to worry about the protection of the village. But Kala, as the lead woman in the household, was the one to worry about this sort of thing. In fact, it kept her up at nights as she worried about what her son had been doing, and what kind of thinking had led him to his line of thought.

The thing that worried her the most was that Nidok was still quite young. Sure, he was one year away from being fourteen, and that put him even closer to being a full-fledged man, but the fact almost everyone in the village had been going to him to look for answers was a burden that no one his age should have had to take on, stone spirits or not. But that very idea that Nidok had been the one to discover the stone spirits made her think that maybe this was her son’s calling. Perhaps, he was the only one that could come up with the answers to all of the village people’s questions.

Kala turned her back on the hill and moved towards the kitchen of her house. The calling of her children was another thing she worried about. Sukla seemed destined to take over the leadership of the tribe, yet he was very unpopular among the tribespeople. Resha was a beauty, but she was disconnected from society and did not seem to help their case. Added to the fact that there had been rumors about Sukla’s impotency and the stillborn child only painted them in a darker light. On the other hand, Kelem and Bakvi seemed to be doing just fine. Even though Kelem was the daughter of Anesh, she was not truly guaranteed anything because of it. However, Bakvi was much more liked among the tribespeople, which placed him higher on the totem pole than Sukla. There was the small chance that Bakvi ended up taking over the tribe if Sukla continued to be disliked among the tribespeople.

Kala shuttered at the thought. While that would benefit her daughter (and quite possibly the tribe, although Kala did not want to fully admit it), it would most definitely split the Shamir family, and quite possible the tribe.

Then, of course, there was Nidok, the one that she worried about the most. He had no guarantee of anything besides the fact that he would carry on the Shamir name. It was very unlikely that he would become leader, unless some great misfortune overtook both Sukla and Bakvi following the passing of Anesh. And even if Nidok somehow managed to get into the situation, Kala seriously doubted that he would take up the title of Chieftain. Nidok seemed more disconnected than any of the Shamir’s and did not seem to care about leading anyone or anything.

Kala sighed. “I could always be wrong,” she mumbled to no one in particular.



Sukla sat next to his father, Anesh eating some food that had been prepared for them. They had not said much during this meeting, as there had not been much to say. Sukla glanced over and watched as his father gobbled up some fish. He figured it was as good a time as any to break the silence.

“I’m sorry that I have failed you father,” Sukla said, looking dejectedly into his bowl of food. This sentence caught Anesh off guard as he set down his bowl and looked over at his oldest son.

“Whatever do you mean, son?”

“My failure to bear you a grandchild. My failure at leading the war group several months ago. My failure at winning the hearts of the people. All of these things have been weighing heavily on my mind,” Sukla said.

“What has made you say this?” Anesh paused, “No, what has made you think this?” Anesh said, a slight growl coming out of his throat.

At the sound of his father’s voice, Sukla looked up from his bowl of food and into his father’s eyes. They displayed a scene of anger, something that Sukla had not been expecting.

“You dishonor yourself when you speak like this,” Anesh growled. “Not only that, but you dishonor me. You dishonor the family name!” Anesh threw his bowl away from him, sending the remnants of his meal scattering across the floor. “You have had many failures, as do all men, but to whine like this is uncalled for. You are a man. You must deal with this in a masculine fashion. Men do not complain to each other, or speak of their weaknesses. That is the job of women. Men are to go about their duty without acknowledging their weakness in such an open matter. Account for it, yes, but to openly admit it is faulty.” Anesh paused for a moment, drawing in a deep breath before letting out a low whistle. “You have many things to learn Sukla, many things to learn. I just hope that will be able to learn them in time.” With that Anesh got up and stormed out of the room, quite quickly for someone his age. Sukla stared on, not truly believing what he had just seen.

Although his relationship with his father and been touchy at times, there had always seemed to be some sort of bond. That was only strengthened by the fact that Anesh seemed to favor Sukla over his other children. Recently, things had shifted to the opposite spectrum. Sukla was no longer held in favor over his other children. The birthday celebration for Kelem and Bakvi’s child had illustrated as much, and the fact that Anesh had put so much time and effort into Nidok’s sauna showed that Sukla did not have the favor that he once had.

Sukla looked down at his bowl and saw that there was still plenty of food left in it. He too, pushed it away, although in a much neater way than his father had. Standing up, Sukla made his way to the door and left his father’s household, all the while thinking deeply on what had been said.



“So you have settled on Hanev?” Anesh asked Bakvi. They were standing outside the small building that had been designated as the assembly point for the warriors of Amor. It was nothing special, just another house that allowed them to store weapons, make new ones, and gather together while protected from the elements. Because of the weather, they were actually able to stand outside without freezing half to death, which was a nice change of pace.

“Yes. Kelem actually suggested it, and I said ‘Let it be so’ and it was. Hanev Shamir, firstborn of Bakvi.” Bakvi smiled at this, his pride showing on his face.

“That is a good strong name, and a good choice. My grandson will bear it with much honor.” Anesh smiled as he said this, slapping Bakvi on the back in approval. “But now, if you will follow me into the barracks, we have some matters to attend to.” Both men entered through the wooden door and into the interior of the building. It was a bit drafty on the inside since no one had taken the time or care to patch up the holes that had slowly appeared over the course of the year. The house belonged to no one in particular and so the men had failed to maintain it as if it were their own home.

A large group of men had been assembled, all of them warriors of Amor. They were all tough and strong. Some of them had taken to cutting their hair so that two strips ran down their head from front to back. These strips were only about half an inch tall and insisted on standing straight up, no matter the circumstances. The rest of their head was shaved to the scalp, leaving them completely bald. The men that had chosen to adopt this style of appearance tended to be the leaders of the different squads that had naturally developed over the length of training and were often seen hanging out together while off duty. A tight bond of brotherhood had formed amongst these men, and it had been somewhat contagious. The warriors of Amor were closer knit than most other villagers, which was really the only reason that Bakvi and Anesh had allowed the men to cut their hair in such a way. The first time one of the men had shown up to training with a different hairstyle had been roughly disciplined. Over time the rules had become more lenient and more and more men had shown up with new hairstyles until they had generally settled on the one they were sporting right now.

Immediately after Anesh had entered the room, the men killed any conversation they had been having and bowed in his direction, showing him their respect and loyalty. Anesh was a powerful man, not only because of his status, but his physical presence was something in and of itself.

“Thank you for gathering here,” Anesh said after motioning for the men to return to their state of ease, “as I have something very important to tell you all. As you are all aware, our first group of warriors was ambushed some time ago while on a hunting trip further inland. Some of you men here were a part of that group and were lucky to survive the ambush. Those woodland men, as I have no other way of describing them, were strong and had powerful weapons with which they killed many. Since the time of that ambush, I will admit that I have been fearful of sending men into the forest. I did not see the value of risking your lives needlessly, especially when there was nothing to gain. But over time you have trained and learned ways to fight and survive in the wilderness. But more importantly, your numbers have grown and we now have a large force that offers the Amorcian people protection.” Anesh paused here for a moment, taking in a deep breath as he locked eyes with the different men assembled around the room. “The time has come to take a measure of revenge against these woodland men. All of you assembled will be led by Bakvi into the forest on a scouting mission. There will be a large group of you so that you will be protected by your numbers, but I must stress that this is not an active attack against the woodland men. They have better weapons than us, which proved to be crucial during the ambush. There were also many of them when they attacked us, but we are not sure how many of them actually dwell in the woods.

“What I am asking you to do is go into the forest and find their whereabouts. You will all have to be on the highest alert so that you are not ambushed again, and so that they do not realize that you are watching them. If, in the scenario that you are discovered, you are NOT to attack them. There is a possibility of learning from these men, and we cannot destroy our chances of that. However, if they are overtly hostile and do end up ambushing you, then you are free to attack them and kill as many of them as possible. But that is the only time you are to show aggression. Attack only if attacked. With some people, violence is the only answer. That is all.”

Anesh left the room behind him. Bakvi turned to the men and smiled.

“Be ready, for we leave at dusk.”

Classes

For the longest time, the Amorcian people did not have any set jobs that they were to perform. Each family member was responsible to support their own family and no one else. The tribe simply stayed together because they were of like mind, and could provide support and protection to each other from people who did not think in similar ways.

Over time, as Amorusk developed, trades started to appear within Amorcian society. Those that were more adept at fishing drew in larger loads than those that were not. These people were able harvest larger nettings and thus were able to trade to those that were not so lucky. Eventually, people started to move into different areas of production. The establishment of permanent villages made strong wooden houses a necessity, especially because of their close proximity to the colder regions of the globe. Lumberjacks and the like became more common as the demand for strong and sturdy wood increased.

Later on, tool makers began to appear, although in smaller numbers. The demand for specialized tools was not heavy, and only a smaller number of people were required to produce them. This would eventually lead into weapon making as well, specifically the bows, arrows and spears that the Amorcian people came to rely on.

One of the largest shifts came with the establishment of the warrior hunter. The Amorcian people had never relied on hunting as one of their main sources of food, but over time it became more prevalent. Originally, these hunters were also designated as the warriors of the tribe, providing not only food, but also protection. They were the strongest of the strong and became adept at using the weapons they were provided with. Within a short period of time, these people came to also represent the police force that kept order within the tribe, thus establishing a higher class from the rest of the tribespeople.

(It's a short one, but I'm working on some artwork for the Kestali people)

Stories from times past told of other tribes of people, such as the dark skinned folk who would sometimes approach from the southern lands, and the bearded white men, who used to sail boats from the north before a sudden disappearance. Although the tribe had been doing well and had expanded to a second settlement in the woodlands to the west, Cahtu felt their isolation would soon be a problem; so he decided the tribe should send emissaries into the unexplored lands, to test the rumours of the old days and find new firends. The council had the winter to plan their expedition, the two parties would be heading out at the first sign of spring to return by the time of the next harvest.

One group would head north; four labouring men, four veteran warriors, and their wives, headed by the priest Gemut. They would be sent with stone ornaments, herbs and fine drink to trade. They would travel under the blessing of the river god and forage close to the shores to sustain themselves on the long trek. The second group would head south lead by Hatham; also with four veteran warriors, four labourers, and their wives, and also with two fair virgin girls to present to those they would find, they also took dried meats and fine tools for the natives to sample, travelling under the blessing of the rain god, so that they may persevere in the dry southern lands.
