Taking more seasons to return.)One of your warriors, Stadda, volunteers to lead the expedition, he was an handsome confident hotshot who was eager to prove himself and bring you some nice finds. "Chieftess, im eager to get going! Im ready to go wherever you deem worth it."His chieftess contemplates the dangers of such ventures near ane far.

"Hey, who are you and what is this place?" The veritable golems speak but theirs is a gravelly, yet sonorous speech, "We are the children of the stone, we were made by Halekk, the god of Crafts, we were the first creations to be made. Bones of dead gods, stone, are our bones. This is Stonehold, we live protecting the grave of our God, building his underground mausoleum as his resting place until he lives once again."What does Stadda do with this knowledge?
>>39336628What do we know about the other tribes?He should ask if visitors are allowed in Stonehold. Also, since this place is related to a god, if offerings to the god are allowed.
>>39336628Stadda knows of the Wings, Earthers, and Horns, plus the Crystal tribes of ponies, these stone ponies are unknown to him, but they are in vsry8ng stages of quakity, from jagged raw stones cobbled together, to segmented sections bound together, to statuesque beauties of one contigious piece of anime marble and stone."Are visitors allowed to visit this place?" Stadda asks as they nod and ask that offerings be made by visitors, and if the stone of Halekk sings in joy, Stadda might earn a new god for the tribe or some other blessing.>Sacrifice!?Goods(1-35) 50 TotalHerd Animals(1-20)Sacrifice a Pony!?(1-5 Taboo becomes Neutral)

An creation of a God is an amazing discovery and their God could benefit the tribe if we accept their own worship into the pantheon.>Send Embassy to the Stone Tomb tribe?(Yes)-Trade-Worship Halekk-New Shrine Created(No)-other races opinion lowers-self sufficiency rises-boon to worship of Lune
>>39342852(Yes)Want that trade, gonna become rich.
Do we have any leaders?
>>39343145With an embassy sent to establish a trade route, the Stone Tomb tribe provide us Precious Gems as a trade good, allowing easier and higher quality trade deals with other tribes. Along with an yearly contribution of Goods. The shrine to Halekk is soon constructed out of fine onyx stone, the mason god shrine providing an boon to magic boosting Goods produced each year.You notice an Stone Pony sitting at the council as she advocates raiding for cattle, as more shrines require more herd beasts and goods to be sacrificed to their goods with each shrine supported.>We war! >We raid!The Sparrowhawk tribeThe Tree LimbsThe Wheel TribeThe Tall MenThe Ruby PackThe River Thrush Tribe
