I...HAVE NO IDEA WHAT YOU HAVE JUST SAID.
Farmer folds his straw into a stylish strawhat, and tills the soil, and plants some stuff.
Used up one tomato packet, and one use of the Seed Satchel (9 left)
Iorni speeds herself up! Woah. Iorni gained a level whee she can now learn a new spell, or upgrade an old one.
Wooooaaaah. FEEL THE MAGIC. She also managed to get four piles off leaves, that have a painkiller effect.
Micheal sees a vision of a river! It must be SOMEWHERE AROUND. Wandering around, he manages to find it. It is not that far away (it takes one chore point to get there and back). He also saw a cOwl. Micheal also leveled up!
Rajilla got some firewood, and a bunch of purpleberries.
Steve carved the wagon lighter. And not just by removing bits of wood. He also made 4 traps, using up 4 parts of the parts pilel (6 left).
Victor also used up 4 uses of the other pile. He also made an atunomous gear. Whee.
Skeggi uses up all of his FP to vandalize nature. He also leveled up! And set up the tents. ((Although they are more of Yurts, really))
Iorni takes her knife and begins to carefully shear the wool off the cows. She has neither a carder nor drop spindle, but she figures she might as well start collecting the materials.
She fusses while she works, "Say, I think we could really do with some more containers... For water, if nothing else."
After the cows are sheared, she'll go to wash the wool in the river.
"Ah, good job Micheal. Now... you," Rajilla points at Victor, "Inventor, cease your trap making and do something useful, like the girl said. I'll see if that river has anything alive in it."
Rajilla takes her fishing kit and looks to see what stuff is alive in the river that could be eatable. If she either finds and catches something or encounters something much larger than she can catch, she will use her Cold Sharp to preserve/kill it for later.
How it happened
Ha finally... Hum... they smell a bit like Gertrude and Erika. Okay... so I'll guess I'll that one. MIchael, ya better stay away *Nordic frowing*
Skeggi prepares a campfire.
"Anyone has seen some animals ? Those steaks look pretty good but it's just not the same..."
"What? None of you thought to bring cutlery?
I only abandoned mine because I had to bring my tools of art, and I can already tell that none of you needed to pack anything quite so valuable.
Did you really wish to eat and drink out of your hands like savages?
Someone get me some wood and I'll make you the most beautiful set of wooden cups you have ever laid your eyes on."
Steve attempts to carve some firewood into a crude cup, ideally he's probably going to want something a bit higher quality to work with though.
I have my bottles. If it's needed I can cut some and make some cups and others utensiles.
Skeggi knew somehow working on Iron would need far more material, maybe charcoal to begin with. Making some of it and a proper oven would require time ans space. Of course he could try doing something during on of his "special" time, but what could happen ?
AAAAAHHHH FUCK YOU SMORGASBORD MAN.
ANYWAY, I GUESS
I SHOULD DO SOMETHING
YEAH I SHOULD SHUT MY PIE HOLE
Having about 5 FP (Fantasy Points? Fun Points? Funky Points?) left for the day, Michael decides to spend it all for Intuition. He also gathers some firewood and supplies to make himself somewhat useful. Meanwhile, his adorable sidekick Freckles channels her cat heritage to hunt for small mammals, because that is what all cats do best right? Getting small mammals and leaving on the front doormat? Expect there is no front doormat, considering this is a wilderness, not a house.
Oracles, the few practitioners of the called divination, tend not to use their metaphysical-warping powers often. One, most people who practice this art tend to abhor use of unnecessary force and violence. Two, it is hard to explain divination results to mundane folks when there is dapper gentleman appearing in a London Police Box or a purple abomination dancing in a paisley tutu around.
Needless of the strange occurrences, oracles make surprisingly good consultants.
No one knows the reason why though.
Maybe, that is part of their magic.
Or maybe, the weird shit that happens around them gives them insight.
"The descriptiveness of your precise instructions leaves me without words, girl."
He walks into the wagon to retreive some parts and assembles a BASIC OBJECT HANDLING ATTACHMENT. Essentially, a pincer. It can only open and close for now, the good news is it requires a low energy usage to operate.
"I'm convinced this qualifies as useful."
I'm not sure if we have to feed ourselves, because it still says x100 Steak...
If we do, Farmer nibbles on some steak and hands Skeggi some too while he rests, growing boy needs to eat.
Wait? We don't have a bucket? Hrm... hang on, I got a crazy idea...
Farmer then collects his craftsman's kit and dumps the contents of it into a corner of the cart, takes the empty box to the river, fills it with water and hopes it's at least kinda water tight. He brings the water back, waters his crops and repeats if needed for the monster plantation. If farmer has any pips/fatigue points left, he casts Detect Magic on the carvings in the cart. Not that he's suspicious or anything, but how can this make it lighter... crazy carving magics.
also because xp

It takes 4 to hammer.
Is this alright?
WITH HER CONTINUED ZIPPING-ABOUT-NESS IORNI SHALL GET SOME WOODS AS WELL!
Sitting near his now steady campfire, Skeggi talks to both Victor and Steve.
Nice work, but it won't get us far, Saxon. I thought a bit about our situation while gathering wood... actually it's both good and bad, wht do you think ?
We had to leave that... hell hole right before learning anything about this place. Is it cold, warm ? What stuff could we eat ? Are they people and I mean friendly ones besides those dorfs ?
Most importantly, we lack some essential things. These...
Skeggi slowly ate a whole mouthful of dried steak
are fine but we better not keep that diet for too long. I don't know what kind of plants or animals well find, but we certainly better think to find salt. We could get some at the sea, of course. Some days of work but we would have enough for a long time.
But more importantly...
The norseman took his heavy hammer in hand and patted its dark head.
We may need more tools Both you and victor have some, but they are mostly for small work, don't they ? Could you tell us exactly what do you have, Victor ? Plus you gonna run quickly out of parts, metallic ones.
We don't have heavy duty tools, and once we need to clear some forest patch, or make sensible building materials, we will miss them. Of course brute force or the powers of that singing chick could do some but it won't be very neat.
We should think of whatever we could really need and seek some trading opportunities. I will be able to adapt or repair our metallic part, but if we want more we will need to buy iron. Making some ourselves will be quite a lengthy process, and we shouldn't think about it until we find a suitable place.
This reminds me of the little settler posts in the forgotten islands. Fun stories, bad weather, and worse animals. I'm not a real explorer, so I guess someone who knows about this should lead us for a time. Maybe I'd be more useful later.
So, for now, you could find out whatever tools we have and those we lack. Forge is out of the question for the moment, but I think we could need some buckets, and barrels, look at that poor farmer.
Farmer casts Detect Magic on the runes. He is shocked. IT IS MAGIC! IT REALLY IS! He cries tears while he eats three pieces of steak and watering the crops using the box of his tools.
Iorni managed to get more wood, and two piles of wool! (Brown and Smelly) [[also retconned the Yuck's looks to include more wool]] She also got a firewood.
Micheal has a horrific vision!
He also gathered wood. Freckles caught a bunny.
Rajilla caught a carp, and a giant Pike. She used Cold Sharp on it, because it nearly bit her.
Although it looks so garishly coloured, it could be a garfish.
Steve gets two more firewood, and makes three sets of cups. They are STEVE'S ALL STEVES unless he lets the others use his exceptional handiwork.
Victor makes a pincer and rests a bit.
Skeggi gets some firewood, and makes fire from them. He also eats three steaks.
Farmer is scared.
It is now Night of Second Day of Volcano.
"This isn't much, but it's different, we best eat these for now as the steaks seem more preserved."
Rajilla cooks and eats the carp, saving the frozen fish for later.
"Now, it could get dangerous in the night and someone needs to stay up just in case some stupid-asshole-dark-wizard comes in the night. We've been up all day, but some of us have had naps, so those of us that haven't should probably just up and go to bed while the rest of us work in shifts. I doubt that anything is going to happen so it doesn't really matter who and as we are not particularly going anywhere yet, sleeping in isn't so big of a deal. However, we should probably work out something in the future, for when we might have to make a speedier get-away."
IORNI. WHAT ARE YOU DOING UP, MISSY. IT IS PAST YOUR BED-TIME.
Iorni, looking quite grumpy, steals Freckles for snuggle-duty and retreats to a tent near the fire. You think she says goodnight, or similar, but it is quite unintelligable.
[Nap x3, then DEVOUR STEAKS.]
"Do I want to sleep with a smelly mountain of barbarian or an annoying child or take a gamble with the third tent?
Yeah, I think I can answer that one.
If one of you is going to go on watch and therefore not sleeping do feel free to claim my tent so I can sleep on my own ok thanks."
Steve glares around at the camp whilst surreptitiously gathering all of his cups into his robe and then backs into the last unoccupied tent.
Nobody is allowed to touch his precious drinking implements.
They might hurt the poor things!
