So after some deliberation, I decided instead of waiting, I'll try to run this alongside the civgame. My train of thought is in the discussion below(not gonna make a new thread for this, it's gonna be one chapter only).

This is a very NSFW quest! Expect nudity, violence, gore, non-con, sexual intercourse of hetero and homoerotic natures, confusing story lore, cryptic bullshit, borked updates, and stupid names

You are Oklak. You were told to go hunting and fill the stores for all the extra mouths to feed. And the new mouths on the way. You said you would go hunting. You took a few of the gob-lee to do a lot of the work in the swamps. Baeohar too, since he said he was good enough with a spear for fishing. You would help by keeping watch. If you smell any ghostskins, you'd help keep them...occupied while the rest of the hunting party collected enough food for the clan.

That is a lie. They didn't say you would go hunting alone or where you'd be hunting. Or what to hunt. You are out hunting ghostskins. Yes the clan complains about food, but you can always get more. What you can't get is respect. The closest you ever get is bragging rights. Rights to brag about having the best females and the most females. You hade the most claim-mates, you had the best trained; but Guk now has something better: a leader. The Nietch-female. He has a clan mistress and the nonperson is carrying his pups! It doesn't matter that you have more, or that you're training has become so finely honed you can break any nonperson into a docile claim-mate in a single night, none of them have the clout of having an enemy mistress as a claim-mate.

What do you have? Siloka? Another hunter like you. Sotovok? A roh-koff hunter. Vaglinka? A pointless servant of a mistress. None have the position of Guk's Nietch-female. You can't even take them out hunting because the clan is afraid your claim-mates will run away if they see other ghostskins. You couldn't even take them out today because 'Gah-meen are angry' as if the nonpeople are so scary without their metal giant. If you run into them, you'd just kill the men and take the females like always. That's why you don't hunt. You focus all your attention on finding those dangerous gah-meen. You sniff the air, trying to catch the scent of the re-zahn people-the home is so full of their stench you can smell them from strides away- while the nonpeople hunt. Except Baeohar. You wore him out yesterday, and he rests only after a few fish. Maybe you should punish him maybe-wait.

You catch a faint whiff of...that stinky staff stuff ghostskins use for hunting. But there's something under that...they don't smell like the gah-meen, or Tok's roh-koff pet. No...this smell is like Bathrae?

Follow Ghostskins and steal any food they hunt or store.
You are a disturbed little man and you would deserve the title of clan leader if you were patient enough to wait for that arrogant Guk to make an inevitable mistake. Being more proud than he is will just push you down the line of succession further.

You leave your female behind to keep hunting, you have a more important job! Find fema-no-find ghostskins. Yes. Find reh-zahn clan. Thats what you're doing. But...there aren't any. Where in cinder are they? You smell ghost-skin. The place reeks of them. But not a single reh-zahn visible! Are they hiding? Do they know you're here? Do you need to make a run for it?

Magic to make your camp look like the forest? Now why doesn't Sizzala do this? Can she do this? This appears to be the reh-zahn camp. Now if you remember correctly, there was the gah-meen, the roh-kof. So this must be the mah-kahg that Bathrae came from! And this camp is larger than the other two. Lots of reh-zahns scittering here and there, hefting those dangerous looking thunder-staffs...ooooh probably better to not be seen.

You slide down into the camp, avoiding the reh-zahn. You can start to form a map in your mind as you follow the scent of smoked meats and preserved sweet things, and avoid ghostskins approaching when you hear their terrible language becomes louder. You find the storage place again. Open, unguarded. How stupid are these ghostskins? Are they so arrogant they think no one would come close to their things?

You have no idea what you are looking at, but it looks like dark brown slugs and stinks of rotting fruit.

You snap your head around when you hear a pair of voices approach. You can't tell what they are saying, but some words are clear...fighting...slaves...sister.

You lean in closer as you stuff one of their sacks with more of the foodstuffs. The wet things in pots you can't bring so you eat them. Huh. These brown slug things are actually fermenting fruit. Once you get past the look and smell they don't taste too bad...

"...I really don't see why it concerns us. It's a Makag problem. Let Makag deal with Makag."

"Because it means our job changes. Shadeleaf may have lord Iagn's word, but Mistress Velia is a half-sister to lord Venian. It's how she has half the camp on her side. It's why Shadeleaf actually has to waste time arguing with Velia over killing everyone in the valley or enslaving them."

"Right. And which one do we want again?"

"The killing! Most of the lesser races out here were already karved remember? It'll be three flavors of hell to remove the glyphs while they're still alive! Velia however thinks it's worth it?"

"Well...I mean it is slaves, that's pretty valuable for us right?"

"Not if we're the ones dying! You know what I think? I think Velia doesn't like that Venian became Patriarch. She is trying to get more slaves now to bribe the other families to supporting her claim."

"That's crazy."

"Is it? Lord Venian is one of the youngest, but he was still given the position. Not everyone was happy, you know that. Even in Gamin, there are a few people that think Velia would have been a better candidate."

"Yeah but everyone has their own opinion in Gamin. I mean I don't see a problem with Venian as patriarch. What's the problem?"

"You mean besides who pays us?"

Ugh too many names, too much talk about patriarchs and matriarchs...

"Wait. Do you sense that?"

"I was waiting to see if you'd pick up on that. You feel it too huh?"

"Foreign magic. Not ours."

"Think we got an intruder?"

"How? Nobody knows this camp is here!"

"We already lost a couple of slaves. Think they told someone?"

"No, they wouldn't, not to lessers..."

"Then what do you think it is?"

"Trespasser, near the barrier maybe."

And now they talk about magic. You barely understood Tok, what these nonpeople are jabbering about you totally don't understand. At least you hope. Because if they are saying what you think they are saying...they sense you."

I don't think ambushig them is a good idea, we don't know how many are near by, you can probably defeat them but someone may notice and if you want them they would just slow you down. And besides they are just soldiers, weren't you complaining that you have too much of that kind of women before?

You recall something you said long ago...well thought to yourself. More females wouldn't mean anything while Guk had a matriarch as a claim-mate. The clan needs to learn this stuff and that's more important than building your collection.

So if these ghost-skins can sniff out gormoamhi magic, maybe they will sense your talismans and not you. Hopefully this one isn't too important...

"Hey! You had to have felt that!"

"A second one? In the camp?"

"That first one must be a distraction! Weapons out! We got an intruder in the camp!"

That was easier than it should be. They're probably going to make it harder to enter next time. This better have been worth it...

Take a little more food than you can carry, and lay down a trail of breadcrumbs that leads away from your home, as they think you're stupid enough to not cover your tracks. Then store the food in a safe spot, return home, and warn the others of your ambush point. You can collect the food and new slaves all at once, and then make signs of an animal attack (forging prints of the hand beast) so any further scouts think they were mauled to death by a smart beast tribe.

Take the food you stole, and use it as a peace offering for the inevitable beating you’ll get when the clan finds out you were off looking for females instead of food. Guk is busy and you’ll probably make things worse looking for him

You return victorious, with enough of the ghostskin food to last for weeks! At least you think so. You don't know how long some of this stuff will last. And you did eat an awful lot in one sitting.

Okay maybe for a few days
. Baeohar looks at you, holding up his stick with speared fish. "Nnnh?"

:oklak:"I've been out hunting Baeohar. Ghostskin hunting."

"Mmmrmn."

:oklak:"Heh. I know, I know. Tok will not like me going off looking for more ghostkins, but he doesn't understand. I need them!"

"Hmph."

:oklak:"I need them for more than that. I'm not replacing you."

"Hmmmmm..."

:oklak:"I don't think he'll be too angry. You got plenty of fish. The gob-lee caught lots of meat. I stole lots of food. Tok shouldn't be upset at all. I think he'll even congratulate us for such a successful hunt."

Tok loosens his grip, you immediately slide away. No point in being close enough for him to start again.
:oklak:"Wait. When did she say what we do? She's not our clan."

:tokrazar:"She is now. But Guk still leads"

:waya:"Guk...that's a whelpling name. Why follow a whelp when you have a proper mistress?"

:oklak:"Well we already had a mistress too. Sizzala leads through blood and magic.

:tokrazar:"ZZZT! Shut up Oklak!" Tok hisses at you but it's too late. Waya is shouting.

:waya:"PFEH! WITCHES! WITCHES AND WHELPLINGS! PFEH! What a sorry state this clan is. YOU'RE LUCKY YOU HAVE ME TO PUT THINGS BACK TO THE WAY THEY NEED TO BE!"

:waya:"I told you to address me properly! I am War Mistress Waya. Waya. Wayabayadayibiyibibidigliboobooburmmmm."

Tok puts Way back on the Pile and patiently listens to all her ranting; but you can tell from the glare he gives you that he's not done with you.

While Tok fusses over Waya, you choose to make your getaway. Your search for your females leads you to Seqrar and his little corner, taking part the metal wagon and rebuilding the pieces into...beds?

:oklak:"What is this?" Seqrar jumps a little. He didn't hear you. You take a moment of pride knowing you're so sneaky.

:seqrar:"Building a birthing place. You know that. Tok and Guk were talking about it this morning."

:oklak:"Mrm. Wasn't listening. Why build a birthing place? Doesn't seem that important yet."

:seqrar:"Yes it is. Guk's ghostskin is due very soon. So I started building a comfortable birthing place women and females can use. I even built beds for both", and off he goes "I put a lot of work into making this place like our last home. I even put the symbol on the wall we had. I don't know what it means but I think it's good luck? Do you know anything about making lucky symbols Oklak? Or charms? Or plants to make birthing easier? I want to make this a success. It is the first one after all. Oh! And we'll need new traditions! Remember when a dah-een would birth pups? We used to sleep with the new pups and the mother to keep them warm because it would be Odd like us. You think we should do that this time?

Traditions hmm? In your clan before you were part of Gulseeque, your clan would celebrate new pups by washing them in clean water and giving the mother a feast. Didn't matter if it was a female or a woman, a healthy mother nursed healthy whelplings. Even if it meant foraging for plants for those weedy nonpeople back home. What were they called? Gu-le-ho? Wait. Did Seq say Guk was having pups soon?

:oklak:"...what?"

:seqrar:"I know it seems really fast, but the Gob-lee did most of the work. The metal wagon had a bunch of tools. Apparently those tools are made by Ah-var to build the wagon, but I have no idea what half of them are for. The Gob-lee seem to know what they are for though. They've been building the beds as fast as I take the wagon apart because of those tools. They are so fast I'll be done by tomorrow too. I really need to learn how these tools wor-" :oklak:"No, the thing about Guk's ghostskin. How is she due?!"

:seqrar:"You really forgot? Tok made a talisman of fast age for the ghostskin. With the one you gave him? It's fast. Faster than Tok guessed it would given how big Ivaka's belly is getting."

:oklak:"Tok made a talisman for faster birthing that I gave him?! Why didn't he give it to me?"

:seqrar:"You didn't ask."

:okalk:"Of course I didn't ask! I thought we were waiting on that until we had wards and all that other stupid stuff you all keep talking about!"

Dammit! Now Guk gets to have the first pups in the new clan too! That really angers you! Why does it anger you? You have no idea. You're too angry!

:seqrar:"That's why you should listen Oklak. Tok and Guk talk about this all the time when you go off to do your thing with your females. If it's that much of a problem why not ask Tok to make one for you?"

:oklak:"Because there are no more females free stupid!"

:seqrar:"Is that a problem?"

:oklak:"It is! I had the perfect opportunity to get another ghostskin! Two of them! But I didn't take it because I was hunting for food for all of us!"

Seq cringes back as you rave at your own actions He is afraid, and confused, but mostly afraid.

:seqrar:"Why are you mad at me for this?"

:oklak:"I'm not!"

:seqrar:"Then why are you yelling at me?"

Stop treating this like a contest.
Your backs are against the wall. Guk 'cheated' with growth magic because the alternative is running out of manpower and starving to death. His firstborn children will be half-formed, mentally-stunted morons because of the talisman's side effects, but they are needed right now.
Patience is key. If you push your children out of their mothers' wombs and they come out feet-first with horns in their eyes and a constant urge to hoist their butts for spanking, they will never forgive you.

Help Seq. It always helps to make friends if a power struggle is inevitable.
Also a new clan means new traditions. Give the mother tuglavu so birth isn’t painful, and then clean the young and let the mother rest. Not sure if we got enough food for a feast everytime this happens. Maybe we can also get Tok to mark them for every kid the pump out. More marks, better privileges maybe?

Acting on a strange hunch, you decide to stay and help Seq. He starts scribbling ideas on the floor with a charred stick as you shoot ideas back and forth. You manage to agree that some of the old clan ideas made sense such as the feasting, and the cleaning. The marking of pups with charcoal and lilacs doesn't really make sense...

You also decide to use this time to introduce a tradition you think will help make the females more enthusiastic to bear your young. Giving the females tuglavu on the day of birth may take the pain away, or at least dull it enough that the pups enter the world with little trouble. Seq is interested in this idea, and mentioned something about taking the idea to Tok. You decide it is best to leave before he calls Tok over...

The search for Guk is fruitless. Apparently he is not back yet according to Bathrae. Damn. You really wanted to punch him. So instead you search for your females. Baeohar is still working with the gob-lee to stock the food away. The ghostskin Sotovok was taken by Sizzala to help fix Saq. -apparently he tripped on a spear or something? You didn't pay too much attention. Saq was being stupid anyway.

A shame. Sotovok was properly broken in as a female. He didn't like serving you, but you taught him to enjoy your taste. Now he can't get enough. Still, there's two females left. If you can find them.

Ivaka and Vaglinka were sleeping in a quiet corner of the shelter. When they see you approach, they present themselves. You expect this of Ivaka, you've trained her to do this for a long time, and so she eagerly waits for you to return. Vaglinka is a pleasant surprise. You didn't have much time to train her, so it is nice to see she is just as obedient as Ivaka. No words are spoken. None are needed.

They want you.
>Ivaka's been a faithful claim-mate. Reward her loyalty.
>Vaglinka is already an obedient ghostskin. Reward her progress

You have a funny idea. Taking one of the ghost-skin’s metal circles, you notice on one side is some ghostskin face. On the other some scratchings. You decide to flip for the females. Ivaka the scratchings, Vaglinka the face. It lands with scratchings side up.

Anticipation wells in your gut as Vaglinka polishes your tool and ready it. You gesture Ivaka to start as you’ve taught her and she eagerly climbs on top of you when you are ready. Vaglinka retreats to your arms as Ivaka positions herself over you. First the tip, then slowly she slides down and-

:guk:"Oklak”
Oh MOTHER GODDESS DAMN HIS WORKING TONGUE! Bastard! The damn bastard can’t even let you have this ONE THING!

:oklak:”What?!”

:guk: “I...I need your help.” Help? Frustration mingles with confusion.

:oklak:”Can’t this wait?!”

:guk: “Um. No. See Sizzala is busy with Tok fixing Seq and-”

:oklak:”Wait, something is wrong with Seq?”

:guk: “Yes-no! I mean. Yes he is injured but it’s not killing him. Just lots of bleeding.”

:oklak:”How does that mean you need my help?”
You glare at him suspiciously. You hope the sight of your female climbing off you to join your hard staring would be sign enough to go away. No such luck.
:guk:”I...well I need help training females.”

:oklak:”What?”

:guk: “With Sizzala busy, I can’t ask her to pry the mind of the dah-een we caught. I thought back to your females and how you made them all obedient so fast. They can still talk yes?”

:oklak:”Hmph! Of course they can. Baeohar was my experiment, but I’ve perfected it since then. Vaglinka, how many gah-meen are in your camp?”

Vaglinka rubs your chest. “A full leklos master Oklak. At least it was until you took Neitch. There may be more now.”

You turn back to Guk with a smug sense of satisfaction “See? No magic involved.” Guk nods without noticing your tone. Amazing how simple he can annoy you...

:guk: ”Yes. I need to do that to the dah-een. Can you teach me how to do it?”

The nerve of Guk! Takes another female then wants you to teach him how to train it? After everything he and the rest of the clan does to keep you down, he comes to you expecting you’ll just teach him like that? Of course you will! You can’t wait to knock him down a notch when it works. You pull your female off you.


:oklak:“Come Ivaka, we have to teach Guk a lesson.”

:guk:“Um, Oklak. Ivaka is my female. Her name is Siloka.

:oklak:”I-I...ye-shut up!”

You told Guk to bring a female he was working on already. It would be easier for him to work with a female that is already partially trained. As he does that, you sneak into Tok’s chamber to take two bowls of his tuglavu, a length of leatherhe was using to suspend a fermenting sack and the Ward of Stamina he hides from you. He keeps changing the hiding place, but you always find it.

When you meet Guk, he has Nietch by the arm. That one?

:oklak:“The Gamin-Mistress?”

:guk:She may have said all those things last night, but it was only to end her punishment. I want her to say it willingly.”

You nod. Makes sense. Neitch doesn't speak out of anger again, but she gives Guk another one of those stares. The one that promised painful death.

Nietch’s arms are bound and her mouth gagged as you set the tuglavu onto the stone impression. Siloka knows what comes next and positions herself.

:guk:"Why the leather?"

:oklak: "Well we're going to be at this all night, I don't want to listen to her all night until she's properly trained. First ofcourse is the tuglavu. Something I noticed when training is that it works very well to make pain into a pleasant sensation, and makes pleasure even greater” you say as you take a dollop and insert it into Siloka. She moans as your fingers swirl around to ensure an even coating. Guk does the same, Nietch grunting as he forces it deep. :oklak: “But I also learned that pleasure can be torture. A wonderful torture.”


Guk looks at you incredulously. :oklak:”I know. In my old clan, the females would do this to us all the time. It was meant to keep us so tantalizingly close, but never enough to find release.”

:guk:”You mean the women did that?”
:oklak:”No the females. I told you, we did things different. The point is” you explain as you lay Siloka on her back(and Guk does the same with Neitch) :oklak:”this feeling is torture of its own. It is pleasure yes, but it is also pain. Because you never achieve climax, pleasure becomes unpleasant, and then unbearable. Now” you push into Siloka and Guk enters Neitch. The females squirm as your sizes fill their ghostskin bodies to full. :oklak:”I will show you.”

Guk starts thrusting as he always does, and you slap the back of his head. That felt so good. :oklak:”No. Slowly. As I do.” Guk watches as you set a slow pace, pausing a moment between thrusts, Siloka arching her back everytime you kiss her womb. :oklak: “It is pleasure, it makes the tuglavu work its magic on the females, but that’s where the training starts to work” you say as Guk begins to match your pace. :oklak:“It is supposed to be slow. You want to see what pace will make your female climax” you point to Neitch’s face as night falls :oklak: ”See? Like that. Slow down more.” Guk grunts obliges. :guk:"It's been hours. How much longer?" Neitch moans under her gag as Guk slows to a near stop. :oklak: ”Until morning remember? Tuglavu makes us feel good. Makes the females feel good. But it also makes them feel TOO good. Especially when they are close to climax but denied it. That is my training. I deny them. All night.” you lean into Guk’s ear and whisper :oklak: “I let them climax only when I want them to. I tell them I will plant seed and only then are they allowed to feel good. I do that many times all night. A Ghostskin gets tired, but I don’t” you gesture to the Ward of Stamina :oklak: “I can keep going. By morning, the females learn pleasure comes from obeying me.”

:guk:”How do you know?” he whispers back, tightening his grip on Neitch as he prepares for a long night of plowing.

:oklak: “You’ll see” you smile as you nod to Siloka. You plant seed and she climaxes. Neitch watches it all.

You feel the creeping rays of the dawn ball hitting you. Normally you hate the sensation of staying awake until day breaks but for training like this? You don’t mind. Your bowl of tuglavu is empty. Most of it is still inside Siloka, churning with your seed as you plow her again and again, some of it spilled out. Sweat coats your body, your legs burn with exhaustion, your feet are soaked in a puddle of the combined fluids of Guk, Siloka, Neitch, and your own, but your manhood is still very willing. The ward helps too, it is the one reason you haven’t collapsed.

Neitch is in a similar state to Siloka. After hours of slow, relentless thrusts, Guk told her she would be allowed to climax only when he planted seed. And he planted seed. It was enough for her that she cried out in joy as her body shook from the release Guk carefully denied her, associating pleasure with the sensation of Guk's warmth filling her. But it didn’t stop there. Guk reapplied the Tuglavu, as you told him to, and penetrated her again with the same slow pace. Not letting her climax until Guk let her. On and on this continued, seed filling your females until it spilled onto the floor. When Guk undid the strap, Neitch begged Guk to fill her with seed. This wasn’t with the reluctant tone from last night. There was genuine desire in her voice. Lust and need mixing with the same acceptance you hear in your females. The acceptance that Gormoamhi are superior and they exist only to serve you. When Guk planted seed again, it was the first time you saw Neitch smile.

:oklak:”Now. The final test. Remember what I said when I mentioned total obedience?”

:guk:”Yes?”

:oklak:”Well you know how you need to keep a hand on your claim-mate to get them to clean you? They never do it unless you make them. Even Ivaka.”

:guk:”So?”

:oklak:”Watch”

You both withdraw from your claim-mates. Even with the ward and tuglavu, you are still stiff despite the hours and hours of relentless plowing. It’s almost painful for you. The ghostskins see you, standing free. Siloka sits up and begins to clean you without prompt. Neitch hesitates for a moment, looking to Siloka, then back at the tool that had plowed her all night. Then she leaned forward and began to suck. Guk smiles in surprise :guk:"Look! She's doing it. No prompt or anything!"

You snort :oklak:”I know. That” you smile as Siloka cleans you “is total obedience. Now go and try again with your dah-een and leave me to my females.”

:guk:"Yes. I...I will. But I think I'll enjoy this for a bit longer." Guk chuckles with a sort of nervous giddiness. He thrusts foward and Neitch begins to bob up and down his length without saying anything. :guk:"Heh. A lot longer."

Of course he will...bastard.

"Oh for the love of-" the Nietch-female takes the thing off Oklak and hurls it at the nightblade. The same thing happens to him and with a yelp he collapses.

"You are lucky I am here" she mutters.

:oklak:"Gah! What? What was that?"

"Just a paralyzing rune. That might have been his last one considering he threw one at you and not master Guk." Nietch shrugs. "They don't last forever though. This one will burn out soon" she gives the roh-koff a kick. "Master Guk is poisoned. I doubt it will kill him. This one is probably from the Gorovar family. The lack of markings tells me you were some slave obligated to Rokof in exchange for citizenship" she kicks the nightblade again. "Terrible at making poison. Good for stealth. Still you should wash it out and treat master Guk. Wounds like that can still kill if improperly treated."

Oklak gapes at her as your vision starts to swim. "Now!"

She uses that same tone every Gormoamhi mistress uses to get whelplings to behave, and it's ingrained in Gormoamhi men to obey without question.

A funny prick in the back of your mind. A strange sensation. Almost familiar, but still alien. Hm. Ponder it later.

The lighter one drags Guk away, as it slings the nightblade under an arm. The nightblade arrived at the perfect time. His loss means you can appear like the perfectly obedient slave to these beasts, protecting her beloved master. As if a night of sex is enough to break a Rezmodla. Idiots. You were thinking of escape, but you overheard them talking about a Resoan Door of Many Places. That sounds intriguing. You might play the part of broken breeder for a while longer if it means securing it for Gamin. Yes that might mean defiling your body to birth their offspring, but a small sacrifice in the grand scheme. You've been in communication with your subordinates ever since you arrived, and they know about as much about this Door to Many Places as you do.

You look to Siloka. She slowly pushes herself up and cranes her neck. You blink twice and crack a thumb. The Rezmodla slave talk lets you communicate to each other with innocuous gestures these Gormoamhi don't even notice.

Will he die? Siloka signals

No. A shame. You sign back. An assassin? Do they know we are here?

No. Rokof doesn't do that. They must be sending them out to look for missing hunters. The ones they caught. Siloka turns her head slightly in Oklak's direction.

Ah. You recall hearing some loud Rokof earlier. Not good. Rokof cannot secure this Door. You may have to push these Gormoamhi to attack Rokof next. It could work in your favor if they take Rokof leadership as 'claim-mates'. The sexual torture might even break a Rokof where it won't a Gamin(at least for a while), which would be even better for you. A crippled Rokof would mean greater advantages for you.

Mistress how much longer must we pretend? Siloka signs.

As long as we have to.

But it's getting harder to think. The medicine they use clouds my mind the more they use it.

Then you'll be remembered for your sacrifice.

Understood Siloka solemly signs back. Thank you mistress.

Yes the torture won't break on the first try, but it might overtime. You admit your own thoughts are forming slightly slower after last night's session, and you are occasionally dizzy when you get a whiff of Guk; but you'll endure this. Rezmodla claimed Gamin through subterfuge, not directly. You will secure freedom and that Door the same way.

You decide to follow the two, playing the part of a worried mate. Tok may be susceptible if he's as weak to Rezans as the rest of these tuva. You run ahead. Knowing their relations, Tok will believe whatever story you make and won't listen to Oklak. So that means-

"Please Master Tok!" you shout. The large fat one jumps when you tap him.

:tokrazar:"Gah! When did you get out?!"

"Master Guk has been poisoned! Please, you must help him!"

:tokrazar:"What? Guk? Oh dammit I'm already treating one, now another? What happened?"

"The Rokof sent someone to kill him Master Tok! They are getting dangerous. I caught the nightblade, but not before it cut Master Guk with his knife! It is killing him! Please save my claim-mate!"

:tokrazar:"Ugh. Problems on problems." he mutters to himself as he stomps off :tokrazar: "I'll never get to open that door..."

The door. Discovering the Door has added an unknown factor to your plans, but the goals stay the same. You spy Ivaka and Vaglinka. You sign to them. The others. How are they?

Ivaka gestures to the Rokofs who gaze dumbly at the gormoamhi. Sotovok is totally broken. Never seen a Rezan so done in without a slave karving. Aglaho is on her way. The one called Tok has been dumping lots of that mind number into her. Aglaho will be like Sotovok by tonight.

Rokof is planning something. You're sure of it. And they have Chazo involved even if that upstart family claims neutrality. The peace between the Great Families is coming apart and you know they are playing a big hand in it. If you can direct the gormoamhi to disrupt Rokof here, maybe take some of the leadership, that would benefit you greatly.

Vaglinka scratches her chin and looks to Bathrae. Makag's fine. She doesn't care that she's a slave to them while it makes Rokof suffer.

Makag. So spiteful. Even their slaves aren't immune to their family's grudges. Speaking of, Makag needs to be culled. You know plenty of them would love nothing more that to split the family apart if it means they get to be Matriarch or Patriarch. If these gormoamhi can remove a candidate or two, that would benefit you.

And the nezheka?

You know the mother more than us. The younger one's bravery is wavering. I don't think she'll be of any help. Especially once the gormoamhi decide to break her.

Once the Rokof has been humbled and Makag's weeds have been pruned, and you have access to that Door, then you can escape. Just so long as you control yourself by then. You see Ivaka. She's had it worse out of all of you. The baby they put in her is growing faster thanks to their barbarian magic. If they burden you with their children before you escape, that might make leaving much harder...

:waya:"Why is the female standing there looking at me?"

...and the gormoamhi women are going to be a problem.

:waya:"Stop staring at me female. Help the men."

You pretend to be frightened, stammer an apology, and run off to help Tok. He grimaces at the wound on Guk. :tokrazar:"Damn. I thought only Dah-een could cut that deep. What did you say about the Roh-koff?"

>>Rokof...
>Encourage the gormoamhi to abduct as many as possible. Fewer Rokoff returning to Rezo means their plans will delay significantly.
>Encourage the gormoamhi to go straight for the leader. You know that the Rokof Matriarch is in camp, and that would throw them into disarray.
>Encourage the gormoamhi to kill them. The Rokof suffer, and the gormoamhi don't get any new breeders.

Here's the play: manipulate these arrogant elitist rapists to target the leaders of all the Rezan factions. With your intel and manipulation, you can get them to use their obscurity to perform decisive ambushes while letting them think it was all them. Except you manipulate them into thinking your own clan's leader is secretly one of the lieutenants pulling the strings. Without their 'leaders', the factions will devolve into infighting and reckless skirmishes, except your faction will only play stupid and paranoid until it's time to make a decisive push. After that, they'll see what a single united full force of Rezans can do, right until they all have axes in their necks.

The fat one, Tok mixes the knife's poison with that damned medicine of theirs and uses the power of...teeth? You don't understand their barbarian magic, and you don't think you want to. If this is what they use for medicine, you'd take the esoteric time-twisting spells of a karver any day.

:tokrazar:"Hrm this will stop the pain. Perhaps even slow the poison. I don't think it will be a cure. You. Ghostskin. Explain to me your Roh-koff clan"

These savages would never understand the political games played between the Great Families. Best just give them something they can understand. If only so they can focus their efforts on weakening Rokof. After all, as Gamin fables say, 'Better to have your enemies chase their own shadows than yours'

"They have the antidote. The cure! They brought the poison. They have the cure for it. If you want to fix master Guk, you will need to attack Rokof!"

:tokrazar:"Why would we attack a ghostskin clan? That would tell them where we are."

"So attack their leaders. Without them they are confused and lost."

Tokrazar stops his magic and leans closer. "What do you know about their leaders?"

"There are two" you hold up a hand "The Matriarch Lady Rokof, and the leader of their mercenaries. They always have a mercenary liaison."

:tokrazar:"Muh-mer-merser-what?"

"Someone who fights for pay. Take them both, Rokof is leaderless."

:tokrazar:"And where can we find them?"

"Lady Rokof will always be with the boss of the mercenaries. But the boss moves every day. It's what all Rokof make them do. Attack Rokof. Burn their camp, take them as slaves, steal their supplies. Steal the cure. It will make the boss come out. They will have to if they want the mercenaries to stay loyal. And then when they show..."

:tokrazar:"...we take them" Tokrazar nods. "Yes. I suppose that could work. A shame Guk cannot help."

"Yes...a shame Master Guk is ill. B-but you also cannot wait long. Makag will likely hear of what happened to the other clans. They will send nightblades too. Like the one that poisoned Master Guk!"

Tok looks concerned, eyeing the knife, then Guk. "So we take their leaders. Do you know them? Is there a leader and a...mer-soo-nah-rey leader?"

"No. Just a single Mistress. She will be protected by her bodyguards though. I know her. Lady Sul'troa. She will surround herself with guards. You may need to do the same to Makag to get to her."

Tok waves a hand "One thing at a time. First we find the cure. We take Roh-koff. But how..."

:guk:"Mrrrerrr."

:tokrazar:"Ah. I see Guk still lives. Well you can watch him ghostskin. Apply this" he hands you the tuglavu bowl "to the wound every time the tuglavu turns black. And if he has other needs, see to them. I have to get back to Waya."

Ugh. Even half dead Guk still annoys you. You sign to Ivaka We need to keep this one alive for now. Alive and happy. I work on keeping him alive. You gesture to his problem. You keep him happy.

Bizangi...Bizangi Bizangi Bizangi. Your mind is cloudy and you struggle to remember who that is.

"Mistress Wayaaaaa~! You're still alive!"

Oh. Now everything is coming back.

:waya:"Hello Bizangi."

"Oh mistress! What have these witches done to you?! You were so perfect and now your body!"

:waya:"What do you mean witches?"

"Mistress Waya, we are in danger" she leans in and whispers with a tone of pure dread. "This is a clanless hovel! It's full of witches! They'll turn us inside out if we don't escape."

:waya:"Bizangi. These aren't the witches your mothers told you every night. Those are false."

"But mistress."

:waya:"These are Gulseeque, what's left of them. They are only clanless because Gulseeque is dead. Like we are."

Bizangi's eyes widen."Wh-what?"

:waya:"Our clan is as dead as theirs. We are clanless. You, me, and the female-Auri are all that's left."

Bizangi sniffles. "But-but-but I can't be clanless! I'm not! I'm not" she cries the same words over and over as she cries into your stomach.

Ash and cinder of all your students, why did she have to live?

You get up to look for Auri. Or food. Whichever you find first. Bizangi clings to you like a boy-whelpling clings to a mother, bawling noisily. You pass the horned Gormoamhi-Oklak. He's ripping the clothes off some nonperson you don't recognize.

:oklak:"Embarrass me in front of my females! I'll teach you!"

You like Oklak. He's like Bizangi with less stupid, and more handsome-can't get distracted! As fun as it would be to watch that big-horned...naked...lithe man's muscles ripple under his skin and-NO! That's the tuglavu talking! Not you! Focus!

You find Auri in a ratty looking room that might be a birthing chamber. "Mistress Bizangi" she gasps as you enter. "You live."

:waya:"Female-Auri. I live. I also seemed to have missed a lot. Since you aren't having an episode like Bizangi" you gesture to the woman-crying like a whelpling around your waist" you can tell me what is happening."

Auri fills in the details you are missing. Ghostskins, old magic, dah-een, threat of annihilation from so many sides. Oh and Bizangi expects to birth soon.

Scout the Rokof. These clans are prepared, well stocked, and most importantly, have a functioning government hierarchy. Unlike your little survivor band, the people in charge of Rokof actually know what they're doing. The men are constantly improvising while Rokof's mistress has planned all basic scenarios a full moon in advance.

You need to change that. Get some basic scouting done so you know what you're up against. Then interrogate the prisoners and apply pressure when you catch them lying.

>Break down and cry
Tempting at this point, but you've been KO'd for long enough and Bizangi is doing an excellent job illustrating how pathetic-seeming the cry option makes one.

Organizing the warriors would sound like a tempting proposition... if you thought this clan really HAD any worth a damn to organize.

You need to know more before you begin fixing problems. Interrogate a prisoner. Poke 'em 'till they squeal. Or something.

Gulseeque. So arrogant in their size, they don't even know how to fight a war properly. Just waves of bodies. Never had to learn their enemy like you did. Interrogation, that's how you did it in the old clan. These Roh-koff. Learn about them, and no magic sticks or strange magics can save them.

And the Mother-Goddess provides, Oklak still has that Roh-koff nightblade in his hands, stripped naked. Heh, it was so close to killing a man, but without its toys, this thing is a weak nonperson about to get female.

:waya:"Horned one. Stop"

:oklak:"What? Why?" You look up.

:waya:"Do you make it a habit of questioning your betters? Or is that a Gulseeque custom?"

:oklak:"Uh...no?"

:waya:"Then when a mistress gives you an order, follow it." You don't give the man anymore time "So, you are a Roh-koff."

"Tze tek ivolofa fots" it grunts

:oklak:"Ha! Tze ilokhalpem tze irostas at"

:waya:"How do you speak their language?"

:oklak:"I...I don't know."

:waya:"How do you not know?"

:oklak:"I just don't." he shrugs.

:waya:"And I don't care anymore. Tell him I will ask him questions, and I will peel his skin a bit more every time he says no."

:oklak:"Tzama tek metroksi pov tzama tek melvorinopvi ota"

"TZE POSIL IFONTENA FOTA"

:oklak:"He...um. He said suck his um...I don't know. What is a posil?"

Yep.

Find the other slaves and mockingly declare them the superior Rezans in front of the Nightblade. Continue to declare the inherent superiority of his clan's rivals until his pride reaches a boiling point and he boasts about their numbers and strengths.

Then tell him you're going to personally inform his clan that he squealed so hard, his tail curled into a spiral. He will bring shame to fifty generations of ancestors, and fifty generations to come.

Witches. You trust them as much as non-people magic. It was their terrible counsel that lead to your clan's destruction. A witch is good for burning your enemies, not for probing enemy minds. Too much can go wrong. A simple gamble will work. Entice with one hand, threaten with the other.

:waya:"Horned one, translate for me. You" you grab the ghostskin's pathetic tool. It freezes as you palm it. "You saw what we do to your fellow ghostskins. Tell me what I want to know, and I might just suck your...'posil'." You smile warmly, being sure not to reveal your teeth. The ghostskin gulps as you feel his interest grow in your hand. "Refuse, and Oklak will make you his mate."

:oklak:"Heh heh. Ah tek tze rokjalmovi gumosona ota", he adds. The ghostskin hesitates for a moment before he replies.

"Um-ah-ah roksholkpem zumek Rokof toda ota"

:oklak:"He says Rokof doesn't deserve his service."

"Tzesh tek ipoma?

:oklak:"What do you want?"

So quick? Either this ghostskin doesn't have much loyalty to his clan, or these nonpeople have no discipline. You should have just threatened him with pain if that's all it takes! :waya:"Well..."

Go through a virtual walkthrough of his workplace. Say where you 'are', and demand he describe what is there and what will happen.

And then you're going to plow him, and if you aren't pregnant, his balls come off!

Soldiers are usually trained to resist pain, not humiliation. It may be good to ask of the training that they DO receive, whether its tactics or whether or what kinds of torture they're actually trained for, since he did so very poorly against your methods.

I'll be honest, you probably won't be able to actually get much info from him as is, it'll be filled with too many lies you'll have to sort through. You'll need to break him properly to ensure the info is good. I'd say give him to Bizangi to play with for a bit since we can't let Oklak have him now, she needs the distraction to become useful again, and probably needs the experience. Given the amount of warm bodies this place already has, you'll probably have to terminate the captive once he's spilled everything, assuming he can't fulfil Bizangi's needs and justify his existence.

He already said Rokof. We know who sent him. We need numbers. Soldiers, supplies. Where do the mercenaries camp? Who leads the mercenaries, who leads the Rokof? Is there a conflict we can exploit? Are there blind spots in their camp? What's his anal circumference?

Stuff like that.

You asked, he answered, and Oklak translated between the two of you.
:oklak:"The Roh-Koff clan is lead by a matriarch. She leads the roh-koff warriors and debt-bound clans

:waya:"Debt bound?"

:oklak:"Yes like this one. He says he is bound to serve Roh-koff to pay off his clan's debt. He also says Roh-koff owns other warriors. Not debt bound. Bound instead by trade. I don't understand it"

:waya:"Maybe they trade warriors like we trade men. Doesn't matter."

:oklak:"It does. The traded warriors are lead by their own leader. A patriarch Dokra. He says the Dokra and Roh-koff matriarch don't always agree. They argue over where warriors eat and sleep and who goes where and when."

:waya:"So there is a divide. Good. We can exploit-"

:oklak:"No. We can't. He says after we-I- took the hunters, they think something dangerous is out here and now coordinate. This one" he shakes the nightblade "was one of the first. They will send more based on the ones that do not return."

:waya:"So the Roh-koff are hunting for us because of you, and they may soon learn where we are...because of you."

:oklak:"Om...yes?"

He continues to translate, but Oklak starts mumbling about how it wasn't his fault between talking. Roh-koff has at least a hundred warriors strong, but that includes the trade-warriors. Dokra and the Roh-koff matriarch may be helping each other, but they also blame each other. Each now changes locations each day in case the other tries to betray them. If one falls, all warriors will be under the command of the other. They both know this.

For such a small clan, fighting that is impossible even with the choice of terrain or tactics. Something must be done to send them on the wrong trail. At least until you can take out both leaders without alerting them to this place. Mother Goddess how will you do that?

"Tzesh miloa?"

:waya:"Hrm. Oh yes. Horned one. Do what you do to nonpeople with this one. Make it docile so it won't escape."

:oklak:"Om...didn't you make a deal with it?"

:waya:"Deals with nonpeople are worth as much as nonpeople. Besides, I'd be more comfortable playing with a half-person that knows who they belong to than some untrained thing."

Oklak smiles. The ghostskin seems to know what will happen and panics.

You summon as much of the clan as you can. Guk cannot, and that is fine. He is injured and must heal. Men are precious more now than ever before, even if they are insane, stupid Odd Ones like these. Oklak was not excused however, and instead was brought to the gathering even as he claimed the nightblade. You do your best to ignore them as the slapping noise makes you think about what it would be like to get pups from the Horned-NO! Ash and cinder you are certain now that smell you picked up was a woman completing her heat cycle. It's bringing yours early and you are having inappropriate thoughts!

:waya:"Our priority now is the Roh-koff clan. This is the camp as told to me by the nightblade" you point to the ghostskin whose mouth was plugged by Oklak's hand. "There are three ways in, with two guards on each. One from the Roh-koff debt-bound, one from the trade warriors. They are expecting the nightblades to return soon and if they find him missing, they will know where we are. So I plan to ambush the other nightblades as they arrive. We will take the nightblades, and the guards so nobody knows which ones were missing. It will give us time to plan a strategy to attack the Roh-koff leaders and remove this clan as a threat to us."

:saqrar:"Um. I know this isn't related, but we still have untamed females."

:waya:"What?"

:saqrar:"Yes. The young neh-yah-ka, and the dah-een Guk returned to us. We cannot leave them unattended. The gob-lee have helped the clan, but I do not think they are good at fighting; and the half-people are heavy with pups, I do not think they can stop the untamed."

:waya:"RRRGGHMMmmmmm. Fine. You, and the other one that looks like you stays. I will need the rest of you though."

:tokrazar:"How many nightblades are we dealing with? We had trouble with just one..."

:waya:"He said alongside him, there were six other nightblades. A direct fight is out of the question. That is why we are all here. Even Bizangi. I need strategies. How can we strike them?"

>Tok will...
>Sizzala will...
>Bizangi will...

No. 1006197 ID: 841ff7

Tok and Bizangi should act as bait while the rest hide and wait for the attack, but befor that we need a way to spot them, the female Nietch can help you with that, she is suppose to be trained, thought is weird she did not alert about the Roh-koff until it was too late...

No. 1006219 ID: bad55c

Okay, first of all the twins should focus on healing Guk as much as watching the females. We have enough of them that they can watch each other now right? And the sooner the neh-ya-ka and dah-een are brought into the fold, the sooner they can be put to work. Now as for the plan.


Oklak will go hunting for a carcass. We'll need it for some blood magic later.

Tok will play lookout with Bizangi to find the nightblades and see where they return to camp from. Then, when the blades return, Sizzala hits them hard with her blood magic using that carcass and her talisman. That thing that choked the dah-een? We hit all the ghost skins with it. Make them suffocate so when Waya goes in with Bizangi and Oklak, they can just beat the stubborn ones out or kill them. Then we take all the bodies.

We'll make Roh-koff think there are a lot more of us out here than we actually have. Either they'll turtle up making it easier for us to pick them off, or they get stupid and send detatchments out for use to kill with blood magic.

Either way we wear them out.
