Lu looks at the Llychlyn with intrigue. Here, to the north of what most would call civilized, his people had grown strong and wild, like the plants and beasts of this place. The Northmen lived as part of nature, they are the bears and the wolves, the deer and the berries, the summer and the winter. Their quiet spirituality and harsh conditions molded them into what they are today.

And it is from this perspective Lu saw the emissaries. Strange flowers from the south. He thought to himself. Lu will converse with the emissaries to find out what they want and to gain information about lands to the south.

Afterwards, he will send 350 men on a great hunt. They will find and slay these bears, and upon their return, a feast of bear will be held in honor of the hunters.

Lastly send 100 men to the east, 100 to the west, and 100 to the south. Each of these groups is to scout their respective area and report back their finidngs.

The twenty five people who ended up finding the northerners would, naturally, firstly try and figure out how to communicate with the northerners seeing how they couldn't understand what was being said to them or vise versa. It was a bit odd for the twenty five to see the northerners who seemed so similar to themselves, yet so different, what with their strange ears and lack of any kind of visible tail. They did hear about the merchants that came before they were sent out but they presumed they looked like they did. Still, they would try and keep that thing to themselves, and try and show no unease. The groups leader was a fairly lean man of average hight named Cadwy, who was the one doing most of the attempts to figure out a method of communication. He'd start with pointing to an object, saying its name, and waiting for a response before moving on to actions and what they were called if they seemed to go along with this. Of course, this meant that particular words that are important would be missing, and they would probably understand each others speech brokenly at best, but it would be a start.

Needless to say, there was two things that might be noticeable to Lu as he watched the people in front of him, well, other than the wolvish ears and tail, and that would be the fact that every single one of them seemed to have a odd curvy bow, obviously they weren't drawn and were currently put away on their back. Other than this, all of them seemed to have clothing made of some sort of cloth. Some had a few furs, yes, but they all had some kind of clothing that wasn't from the skins or furs of an animal. Of course, this was just the first things one could note as oddities from a first glance other than the blatantly obvious.

Hopefully, communication would be able to be established in some way or another, and hopefully it would be improved as they talked...

Ah shit I conpletely forgot I still needed to put an action in here ._.



Well keep the kid with us. Treat him kindly; a well-treated prisoner is more likely to open up, and anyway, itís better to foster a reputation for civility.

We come from the sea, we return to the sea; as is customary, Hadrianís corpse will be wrapped up in seaweed and stones, and dropped to the sea floor. With him will go talismans of a harpoon and a dolphin - made of tortoiseshell rather than simple bone, as testament to his status. These will ensure he has a companion and a means with which to feed himself as his spirit joins the current.

How much experience has Nero had so far? If he has had quite a large amount of experience - and shown proficiency - then yes, he may take command of the new village. However, building up a new village is a more difficult task than running a village that is already established, so otherwise, I would rather he be... ďapprenticedĒ, per se, to the chieftain that will build this village up, with the understanding that he will learn both about the creation of villages and what it takes to run one, and that he will take command - with the chief he was apprenticed to as an advisor - once the village is established.


Letís research sailing. It seems like it may allow us to have outriding ships that can travel faster, and without need for rowing.

Glass is, as usual, correct.
Yep, as ever, I bestow upon Glass the expected +1
I'm gonna say we go with whatever Glass's idea is.
