>>3656837United Feline TribesYear 1 Month 3Action 1While those who fell are mourned in the silent cold it is not the time to wallow in one's grief. Those of your tribe come together to find a solution to what had made the longhouse fall in on itself. Bad wood, Wight of the snow which cluttered the roof, or bad design of the structure. The cats simply didn’t know enough of how to build such things before trying such a feat. Now that they see this folly and know the consequences that ignorance brings these felines to endeavor to learn. An so after many hours of research that had them trying different approaches to creating a building they find just the right way to craft a longhouse. Dig a trench long enough and sit its walls with sturdy rocks, find large enough bark to create a dome around this and keep it sturdy with large enough sticks set in a row down its center. +2 techBlueprints for Longhouse acquired. (next time you craft this structure you get a +10 to the roll)Action 2The area around the hares' din seems to have very few predators that might claim them for their own. So you mark the area as a claim by your nation and think that is settled, but when your hunters are about to leave they are met with the face of nearly thirty red-eyed bunnies in the white snow, so bleached that the group didn’t even see them approach despite their numbers. “Why have you come to the warrens clawed ones?” echoes out a voice from the horde. “ We mean no harm to your kind but you bring with you the scent of blood and dominance.”>>3657091The Gnawing Horde Year 1 Month 3Action 1Many hours are spent in the heat of the swamp searching for these shelled creatures, yet as the scout's sludge through the mud, they find nothing but flies that fill the air and plants to block their view. Night comes to add no more luck to their search and just when they are about to go back to be relieved a rumbling can be heard. Out of the depths of the muddy water rises a massive island, a shell caked with years of growth and mudslides way that it waves over the scouts of the horde easily drowning a few in its filth. Then before you the turtle yawns, its yellow eyes open to spot your kind and with a slink of its neck the mud bellows from below him to wave forward once more into the rats pushing them back. On the outskirts of these creatures domain, where your scouts that live sit and watch, they find many more islands rise from the waters all shapes and sizes but all grand in scheme. A report is made and sent back to head command.Action 2There are a few members of the horde that seem to care for all of their children and keep them all fed. This causes week meat to fill the ranks of the horde and is unacceptable. A group is formed by the true mothers of the Horde that set out to beat and devour those that find this practice acceptable. But there are many warrens in the vast drowned networks and will take some time to root these cretins out. (1/2)

The tale is heard and all gather around the sun-baked rock near the river bed to come to talk it out. As the scratching ceremony begins though several crows pin down writers to the sun-baked boulder and brutally tear into them before all others. Spilling their fellow bird's blood across the stone to sizzle. Some crows screech in horror and try to fly away, only to be met with the onslaught of the killer's followers to be pin down and force to watch the shiny black bird atop his friend's corpse. “There is but one tale now!” He screeches out for all to hear, stretching out his wings toward the sun. “I am the lord of Passions! And your songs will sing of me from now on!”Lose 1d10+5 population Action 2Finding the waters far too difficult to dive into there has been some worry that maybe a new way to gather fish will be needed.

The fingers of the horde then start to dig, burrowing for days under the mud and soil, Draining the water with their bellies and never faltering in the duty set before them. Eventually, you hit a strange harden stone, one which takes breaking the fangs of several of your sharpest rats and hours of work that rewards the group with you falling into a great root system deep bellow, the strangely harden stone making huge tunnels big enough to support traffic from the shelled ones. The team spreads out Into all the chambers, scuttering about to find every egg room, making sure to leave none left. When satisfied that all these eggs were found you commence a stealth operation to simultaneously wreck every egg in each hatchery before leaving to report the news. The plan goes off without a hitch, silently the bottoms of all the eggs are bitten into to leak onto the floor and those about ready to hatch are either killed or tied and dragged with the group to take back to the Horde.That night the earth splintered where the turtles home was, rocks could be seen flying into the sky from miles around and the ground shake non-stop till the sun peaked over the horizon, but your rats were on their way home carrying their spoils in tow. They arrive bearing the nearly hatch turtle eggs and present them to the horde letting them choose how to use these creatures for the greater good.Krillagax, the head of this operation and praised for its success is rewarded greatly for his endeavors, food and slaves granted that he will head as many battles in the future. That night after feasting, his body changed, muscles tear out their skin his bulk looms over even the tallest of rats and his claws and teeth turn dark and ragged like the very stone the turtles threw at them.

These creatures, The Borndead, ravage the horde's ranks, who are unable to predict the cause of the stillbirths or which ones are infected with this undead plague that now devours through their people with new dead rat pups.Lose 4d10+5 Population

Stroked with the fire of inspiration the great minds make adjustments to the blueprints to help make the structure bigger and far more defensible. The construction is hard, tiring many, but the thought of a warm place to rest with fellow cats helps drive them all forward! Many days pass by before the last bark roof piece is placed down and with it a shout of excited meows from the group that had gathered to watch its completion. A feast was held on that night, one where many cat kinds gather around on furred rugs and ate from wooden bowls in quite a comfort while talking over ideas with fellow friends.A seat of government and symbol of community is made!+5 culture + 2 Defence.Action 2While many builders are working on the grand Longhouse there are a few, inspired by its work, who have taken ideas from the blueprint made and have gone out to make a place to train great hunters in a more controlled environment. They think, “if we can see further and climb better we may see threats before they even reach us!” An so they make a building which is tied to several of the large dark trees, built high up in its branches and made to help make better climbers and stand as a scouting base for those trained there. +5 powerDiplomacy ActionThe snow seems to whip up slightly at the words of your leader. “I see “ Say a hare in a loud echo that surrounds your pack. “ Then go, deal with countless darkness that chases the tail and we will leave you alone.” All at once these hares close their eyes and lower themselves to the ground, vanishing from your view completely in an instant.

Despite having guards on high alert they are no match for the swarm of undead young who run over and devour them in terrifying chatters. They rush into the nursery's and add more young pups to their ranks, only turning those newborns. Lose 1d10 population Action 2The lumbering Killagax, after resting and feasting takes his troop to the for-front of the turtle territory, finding the place in disarray with large stone pillars that cover the field. They have shifted from fueled anger to deepening sorrow, now is the time to strike at them. With a nod of his head, a group of rats rushes forward to the nearest mount, tackling the form to wake the slumbering beast beneath. Killagax and the rest of his team move further away, allowing his men to lead the creature into his waiting fangs. A great roar comes from the turtle, fending off the two rats biting at his heels. The large shelled one rushes into the high weeds, and into the ambush that lies in wait. From up high on the reeds your team strikes at the beast back, but this proves to no avail. Showing that the beast shell is far harder then the rats teach and the mud sloughs them off when it bucks. Killagax roars and charges into the creature, nearly twice his size but far slower and untrained. The Dire-rat slams into the underbelly of the creature pushing hard to tip it over, but the weight was heavy and his muscles burned at the effort. The turtle bucks again this time slamming down into Killagaxs back, then again, slamming all of its weight into the buckling rat beneath it.KIllagax drolled blood, his back was burning with pain. This was not his end though and he would not be bested by some dull creature! With a cry, he shoved his shoulder in the turtle's belly just as it hefted itself up knocking the creature off balance. Killagax backed up and with a yell shoved both paws into the dirt which instantly harden under him and shot out towards the turtle tipping in the air. A lance of stone shoots froth out of the ground, shattering the shell and holding the creature in place. Plenty of time for the troops to swarm inside the wound and start devouring it from there out. >>3663316 Vulture Clans1st Trait: Unconquerable Survivors.
