Tribe

When you join you will get a random role in the tribe. Each game day you can perform skills or abilities related to your role, or trade food and tools with other tribe members, or discuss group strategies.

It is now Spring, the goal is simply to survive next Winter.

I feel like we've tried something like this before?
Whatever, seems interesting.

A_Curious_Cat is the Gatherer

Glass is the Cook

MonkeyMarkMario is the Elder

a1s is the Hunter

0 Turns Survived
15 Turns Until End of Winter
It is New Spring


It was a light winter, but all personal and communal food stashes are totally depleted. However there was time to train and improve skills.

The Elder can now choose one person each turn to advise. The recipient will use the best of two rolls when using a skill. Elder can give bad advise with the opposite effect. (PM to do this)

The Cook can now spend a turn to do one of the following:
-turn any number of fruit or meat into dried food. Dried food does not spoil.
-turn any combination of fruit or meat into 1/4th that many hot food. Hot food goes bad next turn. Hot food adds a bonus to any roll next turn.
-poison food, 1/3rd chance of death on consumption. (PM to do this)


The Hunter can now try to kill the following:
-small game, low meat but high chance of success
-big game, high meat but high chance of injury and low chance of success
-other tribesman, always works, gives high meat that may be poisonous


Now that winter is over The Gatherer can go fruit picking again, which is fairly safe for getting a medium amount of fruit. The Gatherer can now invite others to come when picking fruit. Each additional person reduced The Gatherer's roll by 1. They each have a 1/2 chance of finding 1 fruit.


Throughout the year you will face unexpected obstacles and challenges, and not all of them may be from beyond the firepit. As you overcome your trials, your skills will grow. You can perform one skill per turn. Do not PM each other/discuss this game outside of this thread. For this first turn you have 48 hours to discuss what to do.

A majority of players can decide to kill another. To do this post their role in bold red. There must still be a majority at the end of the allotted time or it doesn't happen.


Choose your action.

I have several questions:
How much food do tribe members eat per turn?

Is 1 fruit a "medium amount"? That sounds pretty scarce.
Is reducing a roll good or bad and by how much?

Yes.  Inquiring minds want to know.

Also, are you saying that,  no matter how many people I bring along, we'll only ever find one fruit between all of us and that our chances of finding fruit go down as more people are added to the group?





Also, do you want me to just pick fruit off of low hanging branches?  Should I gather fallen fruit from the ground?  Should I pull tubers?  Any possibility I might get a stepladder?  What about Gay Langurs?

How much food do we currently have?

Which gives more food hunting or gathering?

Do we only have to worry about food?

Are we the only tribe members or do we represent groups?

In terms of food, we have no food.

It was a light winter, but all personal and communal food stashes are totally depleted.

My understanding is that hunting gives more food but is riskier, while gathering gives less but can be done by a bunch of people.

Anything left vague is on purpose. You all joined an experimental game with barely two sentences of explanation.

But that said, I'm thinking I'll use D6. Consider this first turn the tutorial, failures will be more educational than punishing.

It sounds to me that if Cat and I go gathering together, they'd have a 1/3 chance of getting a food and I'd have a 1/2 chance of getting a food.

I suggest that we do that, because I can't do anything if we lack food. I also think a1s should hunt big game and get MMM's advice.
