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 follow Oklak down into the catacombs. Tok has several tusks from Oklak's recent kill suspended from the ceiling, as he does the empty orbs. Ansliue double checks their fastenings, though he can barely reach.

:guk:"What in ash is this?"

:tokrazar:"It's my plan to harvest talismans to open the door and craft the right combination of wards and talismans to keep my daughter off me until her heat period is over."

:sizzala:"Dadyyyyy. Sizzyyyy wants her daddyyyyyy~"

:tokrazar:"Ugh. I also intend to establish new clan traditions."

:guk:"New traditions? We already have a clan."

:tokrazar:"And it's dead. The only ones who knew the rituals of our clan are gone. New clan, new traditions, new rituals. This for example, will be a new ritual. Claiming new females." He spreads his arms out.

:oklak:"I don't understand."

:tokrazar:"Pfeh, of course you don't! It is a ritual that both lets us formally induct new females into the clan, make every new claim an event to celebrate properly instead of just mindless thrusting around a fire. Also it lets me keep track of the rest of you so I can properly harvest your Man-Magic!"

:Guk:"Alright" you nod, "so what is this new ritual?"

:tokrazar:"Well, we are going to claim the new females, while also giving the new half-people their own occasion to celebrate. Unlike you Oklak, the brothers wanted Comlee's painting to be special. So that is why they're here. Seqrar and his brother will take turns with Comlee." Seq brushes Comlee's hair and she leans into him, resting on his tool. "I've suspended an orb and several talismans over them. They will keep spreading seed in her until it takes, and fills the orb. All the sowings that do not take will fill the talismans" he points to the teeth vessels "which I will shape into a combination of defense-redirection, and rapid age. You" he points to you, then shifts to Oklak "will finally claim the neh-ya-ka. You will do so under empty vessels that I will use to make talismans of fertility! Once you have them, you can put pups into each Neh-ya-ka with your next plowing, I can annoint them with tuglavu, the clan gets two more half-people, and I get two more orbs filled. Finally I will claim Oklak's other ghost-skin female" he gestures to the other suspended orb."

:Oklak:"You" Oklak glowers at Tok for taking his catch. "I found her!"

:tokrazar:"Stop being so greedy! You already have three females, guk has three females. Seq and Saq share one between them! I will take the Ghost-skin as you have your females already. I will fill the last orb. Once done, we shall have rapid age talismans, and ready all the ghost skins to birth the first litters by next week, the door will open, and we will have access to the Door!"

:guk:"But we thought we'd get to the Door of many places the first time. How do we know this door will be the one?"

:Oklak:"And what if we put pups in Neh-ya-ka the first time"Oklak chimes in. "It is unlikely, they are weak, but it can happen. It happened in my old clan."

:seqrar:"And we have enough food for now because of our size. Bringing new pups in reduce how long that food will last."

Tok is silent for a moment, before exploding. :tokrazar:"Argh! Stop putting holes in the plan! I didn't get any sleep last night trying to put this together! And now you want to destroy it with your problems" he pokes your chest. "Why do you keep doing this?! It's as much a burden on me that you expect me to find your solutions all the time when you are the damnned leader!"

He's tired. He gets grumpy when tired. He also gets grumpy when trying to hide from Sizzala. Calm him down before the fists start flying.

Calm him down, though I’m worried about the food supplies, although Oklak is the best hunter we shouldn’t relay just on him, some half people should be able to help him.

The ritual chamber and this tradition is a good idea. The risk of instant taking of seed is acceptable. The first batch being fertility and ageing is the only mistake. There's an army up there and rival clans on the horizon.
We need wards, firepower, and speed talismans.
Speed talismans for everyone really. Do that first. The ghost skins are fierce combatants and can easily outmanoeuvre us without them.

Praise him for his work and suggest other talimans. He wants you to lead, so lead.

No. 971535 ID: 9876c4

He's done well to devise this. And he's right that there needs to be a new clan. Praise him for his wisdom in seeing so far.

But right now, we need to do something different.
Then inform him about the maps.

When he calms down you explain your meeting with Ionilee and the map she had given you.

:tokrazar:"And so what do you want?"

:guk:"War talismans. The ghostskins are hard to fight. They are fast and do not meet me face to face. I need to be as fast as them. I need to be stronger so their weapons can't cut me."

:tokrazar:"And what of the door? What do you plan to do with that if there are not enough orbs?"

:guk:"Tok, we are raiding ghostskins" you smile. "We can replace females easily."

Tok harrumphs :tokrazar:"And you just told me we don't need more mouths..."

:guk:"We don't. But females are easier to care for than young. You know that."

:tokrazar:"Fine, fine. I suppose we should focus on a plan of attack then?"

>I didn't say that. Bring me the neh-ya-ka. I want to know what pups she'll make!

You've done things to the puppy and her family. Things that must not be solved with plowing. Find a different use for her and her mother, or save them for hostage exchange.

Saqrar brings down the females, leaving them by the wall. The roh-koff female looks at the others. You can barely hear her.

"Nezekha? What are you lot doing so far west? Not much for talk? Ignoring me won't change our situation. Speak to me dammit!"


:guk:"Hrm...it is tempting, but the neh-yah-ka...they seem resentful about the male."

:tokrazar:"Who cares? They're females. Enough tuglavu and they stop realize how pointless dwelling on their past life is."

:guk:"I get the feeling we may use them for better later. When they bare us pups, I don't want them raising them to be enemies within the clan."

Tokrazar frowns. :tokrazar:"Then that leaves the ghostskin, but there is one left. How are we to fill the orbs that way?"

:guk:"Get more."

:tokrazar:"I thought you said no more."

:guk:"No pups. We will only get enough to fulfill all the magic you need Tok. For now we can use the other females for talismans."

:tokrazar:"And then?"

:guk:"We attack the Gah-meen. Take their females, burn their things, and take their weapons. Then we attack the patrol, take who we want, and leave the gah-meen things behind. The gah-meen will follow us, the fort will send soldiers after us. The two shall meet, and fighting will start."

Tokrazar grumbles. :tokrazar:"We will do much damage to the camp Guk. Are you sure we should? They'll know we're out here after that, so it is best we not show ourselves in their camp again. And your plan" he puts heavy emphasis on 'your' "may not work as intended. How do you intend to keep the ghostskins and fort-people for allying and hunting us?"

I think at least we should get the mother to make a talisman, not for us, Oklak and Tok could get stronger too. Tell him the plan needs more polishing (maybe is not a good idea to make known our bas/home) and want to discuss it with the rest of the clan, maybe Sizz magic could help us too.

wouldn't it be better to wipe out the patrol, then let whoever investigates discover the camp?

We shouldn't attack the camp, that's what our confused allies are for.

Maybe we don't have to make sure to breed them right now, but we can have sex with them, we do need more talismans to make the clan stronger, We don't need to rush things, this is a long term plan, we have to make sure they see each other as enemies, this is just the start.

No. 972536 ID: 4c7992

>>972222
While we shouldn't hit the camp, we need to rile up the ghostskins. Plus Tok needs more females for his project which he can't do if the Neh yah ka are off the menu.

Hit the patrol, hit a ghost skin patrol, leave ghostskin gear at the ambush site, and a trail of scrap from the Fort patrol leading to the ghostskin camp. If we encounter any other ghostskins along the way, they will need to be silenced.

Why claim such females later when we can do it now? If they don't wanna be obedient we can always convice them with the brew, that is the Gormoamhi way.

:guk:"We will hit the patrol here" you point the spot where the patrol runs parallel to a ravine. "The fort will wonder where they went. They will see the things we leave behind, and they will find the ghostskins. Dah-een are very quick to get angry. They see proof of ghostskins attacking them, they'll get crazy-angry and attack them and not think it was someone else."

:tokrazar:"And what do we lead them back with?"

:guk:"We find more ghostkin patrols. Take their things and their females. Combine it with the things we took so far, and scatter pieces, make it look like a fight and things were lost when ghostskins took prisoners back to their camp. Oklak leaves tracks. Sizz makes everything dark but the trail. It makes it obvious what to follow."

:tokrazar:"We do not have enough ghostskin things. So like you say, we need to attack more ghostskins" Tok groans. "More risk."

:guk:"Maybe not" you reply. "Maybe we hit another camp. One that does not expect us yet. Fort people are probably stupid, and can't tell difference between ghostskin clans anyway."

:tokrazar:"But who?"

>Roh-Koff
>Mah-Kag
>Gah-meen

No. 972628 ID: 9876c4

Tok has a point.

These families paint and dye themselves to look different to each other. If we have mostly Gah-meen gear, we should do that.

The Roh-Koffs make me nervous, since they haven't gotten in our way at all. They might get involved if one of the other tribes looks weak.

The Gah-meen, maybe we should visit their camp to see their defenses.

:Guk:"The Gah-meen. They different clans paint themselves different. Maybe the Fort people are too dumb to notice. Maybe they are not. To be safe, we can use the Gah-meen things."

Tok nods. :Tokrazar:"Then you will need speed and redirection."

:Guk:"Redirection? But-"

:Tokrazar:"I saw the cuts the last one left on you. That was one. I have no idea what you face or how many will attack if you are dumb enough to alert them. At least then killing you with the magic sticks Oklak talked about won't be as likely. Now get down and start making the Talismans!"

This is perhaps the first time plowing a female felt like a task rather than pleasure. The Neh-yah-ka are bound and the other females are brought down. As the clan prepares themselves with Tuglavu, a glance is made between the Gah-meen and Roh-koff. It passes when you claim them. The Roh-koff one struggles as Tok hoists her up, impaling the female, while Ivaka gives you a defiant glare...until you penetrate and the hostility melts into lust. Analey holds your arm as you use fingers to prepare her after you finish in the Ghost Skin. She hugs you close to her chest as you bring her closer to climax.

Between you and the brothers, four vessels are filled. Tok gets two of his orbs-Comlee now carries Saqrar's pups.

The talismans are made and distributed between Oklak and Guk. Sizz is given a talisman of magic but...she's being Sizz.

The Gamin camp is much more fortified than when you last saw it. It's no longer a smattering of tents, but a small fort with a single entrance, barricaded and a watcher idling atop the battlements.

The camp is abuzz with activity. Ghost skins, many of them running about like a disturbed ant nest shuffling weapons and armor and those magic sticks around. At the center of the frenzy, like some eye in a storm, is the leader of the camp, and another. Then the memories Sizz extracted come flooding back. The bowing one is Vaglinka, the leader of the camp...or at least was until their clan leader, the one called Nietch, arrived. That is Nietch. The one Ivaka called 'Heir Apparent'. She must be matriarch of the gah-meen clan.

:guk:"So that's why there are so many. Their leader is here."

Oklak grunts in response. :oklak: "Makes sense I suppose. That might make getting in harder."

You aren't listening. A leader of a ghostskin clan is that dainty female? With a toothy grin you point to the Ghostskin-Nietch.

:guk:"I want that one."

:oklak:"And how do we do that hmm?", Oklak confronts you. "We cannot attack this camp, I doubt their leader will leave it. What do we do?!"

The noise is deafening. For a few moments, there is only a ringing in your ears as you try to gesture to Oklak that he is an idiot.

:oklak:"What?"

You gesture again that he is an idiot. He returns the gesture, and a few other vague hand signals. While they are rushed and in a confusing jumble, you think the basic message is 'I told you so'.

He rubs at his singed face and hair, more concerned with his personal injury than the fact that-the ghostskin camp is changing. The people are scattering like ants when their nest is kicked.

Oklak shakes the magic shooting thing again. Nothing. He smacks it against the tree, making an awful noise, but it does not do the thunder again.

:guk:"Nevermind. Hide further in the treeline and wait."

:oklak:"Wait for what?"

:guk:"That"

You point to the opening of the gate. Several of the ghostskins congregate into smaller groups. One in particular has a large furry thing that talks like a ghostskin, holding small furry things that look like hairy goblins on leashes. They sniff the ground with enthusiasm as it barks in the ghostskin language. Behind the furry thing is that leader of the camp, the one you saw the first day the camp was discovered; and next to her-there she is. The Nietch-female. Next to the furred one. A smiles creeps on your face.

:oklak:"I don't like that look. Guk what are you thinking? What are-oh. You looking at the Nietch one again? Well forget it Guk. She is going with the big hairy one. Not enough gear with them for the trap."

:guk:"She left the camp."

:oklak:"We'll make a lot of noise if we try to ambush those. Look at the club she carries! Even if it's not dah-een metal that will hurt!"

:guk:"I may not get a chance like this again."

:oklak:"We still can't get Sizz to focus for more than a few moments" he gestures to Sizzala, who hugs herself closely while mumbling about Tok and heat.

:guk:"A leader would throw them into disarray if I took them both."

:oklak:"They also have a thunder-staff. And they know how to use it. I've seen what they can do. They can put a big hole in us! We should go for a different patrol! Guk!"

You tear your eyes away from the ghostskin and turn back to Oklak. He bleats and whines a lot, but if you make the decision, he will follow it no matter how much he doesn't like it. The ambush will happen.
