Age of Man
« on: March 31, 2012, 06:12:59 pm »

There are many people, of many nationalities fighting amongst each other. Some are trying to survive, others taking advantage of the situation, and some just caught in the crossfire. You look up and see an object falling from the sky. It has a trail of flames behind it, and you get an utter feeling of dread. As soon as it gets near the ground, it creates a great explosion, and you can only look as the wave of fire it has created approaches, getting closer...
and closer...


You open your eyes, and find yourself on your back. Your vision is blurred, but comes into focus, and you realize you are in a cave within a large area of grassland. someone comes to your side and offers you a hand up. You accept it, stand and look around. There appears to be a fire at the end of the cave, and about 10 other people sitting around it, talking. The sun has just come up, and is halfway above the horizon, casting the cave in an orange glow. A wooden spear is next to you, and you pick it up and walk over to the fire. The others greet you and one offers you something to eat, which, upon closer observation, turns out to be a cooked snake. You take some and eat it, thanking the person, and once you have all had your fill, you snuff the fire, stand up, stretch, and begin walking to the exit of the cave.
there seems to be a change in the winds...

what is your name?

note that I'm being purposely ambiguous in the stats rather than posting numbers purposefully. IRL, you never know exactly how tired you are, or exactly how long you have until you die of starvation.

Head to the nearest watering hole, why would we need to ask the other tribesmen? Do we have amnesia?

In that case it woulds  probably be considered a god animal of combat. . . . . . . . Mortal Combat!
Toss rocks as it comes close and dodge its first attack. Spin and marry your spear with its spine.

The Pilot and their cargo handlers paused when they saw that the entire camp is covered in eldritch runes coated in blood. And rotting monkey corpses everywhere..

They decide that they didn't get paid enough for this..
