Sunlight stabs over the mountaintops, light finally touching your valley. Ice thaws and snow melts. Life returns with a fury, brush grows thick and vibrant before being devoured by massive herds of buffalo and Mammoth.
The wolfs are nowhere to be seen, your tribe will have to have its vengeance another day. From your watch house your sentinel shouts down to your tribe.
The Homunculi are coming.

Welcome back to Giants on Ice!

Goodnight my thread... Ill hope others forgive me tomorrow.

So will it be tonight or tomorrow?
>>
>>37470410
I was going to run it now, but it was all the way on page 6, I thought nobody was interested or seen it
>>
>>37470481

It does appear to be a slow night. I wouldn't want to run things myself since I'm not one of the regulars
>>
>>37470570
Its alright, as I normally do when the thread doesnt get all the attention I expect, I stay around to answer any questions and take suggestions. Speaking of, Q&A thread I guess!

I thought it was at four! So I vanished after not seeing it. Oh well life happens. Can't be mad at OP
>>
oh ya! does my 1 count on that research roll?
>>
>>37470815
That was the plan, I had to do a bunch of stuff around the house.
I hate not being on time for things.
Your roll was for what again? We can probably iron it out right now

>>37470605
Damn I was really hoping for some good ole fashioned Giant diplomacy.

I'll probably be here if you start up tonight.

It was for animal husbandry after I learned we were out of wood for ceramics... Unless we can burn fire grass for ceramics?!

All the BS in the beginning is your penance. Plus #6 never kicked off

Whatever floats your boat. I think this is fine, though.
Anyone wanna summarize what happened in #5?

Yeah stay in this thread, it's all fine.
My vote's for spending a little bit more time improving our smithing. I like the idea of artisan giants.

>>37472375

We ran home, a hunter died from a wolf attack, a bunch of others got badly fucked up. Children started playing "Hunter" and were getting badly hurt from basically hunting eachother, so we started having them fight under watch of the older giants. Iron mine is making people violently sick. Deep cavern is sweating slime and its walls feel like rushing water. Spring has sprung!

Your hunters first expedition into the light of spring was less than optimal. A pair of hunters didnt come back after 2 weeks. They are assumed lost or dead.

Walking right up to the cave door a procession of human serfs lead by their Homunculi leaders wait in perfect silence to be let inside.

>>37472826
Indeed. They'd still appreciate a drink, I'm sure.

>>37472821
Of course they are. It probably is the damn mead
>>
Grulin steps from the mouth of your cave. Pleasant smile on his face. "Hello Giant-kin! We have come on first light of Spring to bring our thanks." With a calm waving gesture towards your cave, every human steps silently forward. Upon each back rests a massive basket. "We noticed a lack of farmland and suspected you would soon suffer from malnutrition." Opening one of the huge baskets they reveal them brimming with fruits and vegetables. "They were difficult to grow during winter. We hope this is enough to show our thanks for your help." All the Homunculi smile up at your giants, their serfs quietly eyeing the ground.

that's why I say at least ask them what's up with smallpox baskets
>>
"Thank you for these, youre very generous." Grulin rubs his jaw a moment in thought. "If you wouldnt mind assisting us further, Im sure you can see our farms are nonexistent. Maybe you can help us in exchange for..."
>Offer them labor
>Offer then furs
>Offer them protection
>Other
>>
>>37473059
Protection.
>>
>>37473059
Furs and Protection. I don't think they can take down mammoths and buffalo like we can
>>
>>37473103
>>37473092

Furs we have and can get while hunting for food as well. Protection might get us wrapped up in something we might not be ready want.
>>
Protection and technical/magical collaboration.
>>
>>37473130
I doubt hey need furs they have magic heat coils.
>>
"...Protection, I think winter showed us both how much reliable protection could serve you well." Grulin seems quite pleased with himself, grey beard parting from a wide smile.
After what seems to be a moment too long of silence, the Homuncili respond as one in that eerie way they do. "Protection would serve us just fine." Holding up his tiny blue hand up to Grulin to shake. It vanishes under the massive hand. "I will view your land, the rest must return." One of the Homunculi steps forward, the others already turning to leave.

Not protection, we already have something of an unspoken alliance and offering protection can also sound like a threat. Furs are the best idea, we can get those easily, also less chances of becoming serfs.

Crit rolled. Please roll a d100 for possible bonus.
Your Giants lead the Homunculi away from the cave, to look at the land. After only 2 weeks of being instructed where to place a farm and how to properly tend to their land, your giants are confident in their abilities. "Do you require further assistance? My serfs grow homesick." The Homunculi speaks up towards your giants.

The Homunculi talks highly with your Giants and most of their words fly right over your heads. Luckily one of your Hunters, Yiurrlyn catches on to the jist a little better than the others.
>Irrigation will be part of all farms.

"Do you think you will be able to return later in the year? We may require your guidance again." The Homunculi thinks for a moment.
"Naturally, so long as your Tribe is able to serve its roll as our protectors." With that they turn and walk towards their home in silence.

Your hunters split, sending a heavily laden duo back towards the cave, leaving 3 Hunters to investigate the shouts. Hefting their clubs the search the mountainsides, following the sounds. Soon an uncomfortably familiar sound greets them. A low, discordant din of gibberish washes across the rock faces.
Rounding a mountainside your Hunters halt in their tracks. One of your lost hunters stands over the body of his brother, broken club in hand. Shouting and roaring at the massive, undulating green beast before him. Questing tendrils snake towards your hunter, eyes fixated on its every move. Your lost hunter is breathing heavily, blood streams down his left arm, mingling in the pool of his downed kin.

Your hunters split in silence. All of them scooping up fist sized rocks. Just as they are about to surround it one of the many eyes of The Green snap to a Hunter's movements. A roll of Giant gibberish rolls from The Green, loud and unsettling one of your hunters drops to their knees, vomiting. The other two draw their arms back, letting fly their stones and shouting for The Green's attention.
The stones barely register as The Green roils in place, long hooked tentacles dart out towards your Hunters, ensnaring the downed one and grazing the other two.

Your two remaining Hunters turn and flee. Tears sting their eyes as their abandoned kin roar their defiance in the face of The Green. Before they leave the mountainsides those same roars becomes cries of pain and confusion. When they relay the news to the tribe several break down in tears. Children pull at their mothers clothing, asking why they weep.
Deep in the mountainside one of your Giants works with a fury, by the end of the week her hands hold a weapon unseen by your tribe. (+1 Crystal Hateblade) Its Quartz edge is an unusual crimson, the blood of its maker used to sharpen and hone it. She hands the blade to Grulin, hands thickly bandaged and eyes cast down. Asking only that it be used to slay what took her sons.

The Children have grown, from childbirth in the deep of the Long Dark their jaws are sharply angled, pale skin housing dark, aged eyes. The elders decide its time to teach everyone the basics of war. (Despite having no future training) All the young are given Hardwood clubs for their spars. Weekly they are split into teams and set upon each-other. There are injuries but no fatalities. Blood is commonplace among your tribe.
Your craftsmen pour hours over carefully growing Ice Quartz into blades of all sizes. From small daggers (Still larger than most Small-kin would struggle to wield) to viscous axes they forged before.

Your Tribe sets to clearing farmland. Tearing up the thick brush is hard and time consuming but, in the stoic nature thats the hallmark of your tribe, they work from sun up to sun down every day. After a week a sizeable plot of flat land is cleared. Digging into the light soil with massive hands your giants dig long trenches towards the ice runoff for irrigation. A day later and lines are dug and seeds are dug from vegetables, the whole cache is destroyed in this, their remains left to rot. (1 Large farm ready, harvest should be ready in fall)
Your hunters have a similar hunting session as before, wary for voices on the wind they come across a herd of buffalo. Moments laters they return home, laden with a dozen kills.

So when should we approach the Homuns about them relocating their village closer to us. Not right against our doorstep but close enough that if we have to defend them during the Long Dark we won't lose too much time getting to them

Your tribe is tired of eating raw meat and sets out to gather wood to rectify this issue. Ripping down hardwood trees takes time but the payoff is well worth it. (+45 Hardwood)
Out second option seems a little confused.

Your giants dig about by the Mammoths ,scooping handfuls of dung and mixing it with the farm soil. It was disgusting work but already the soil looks darkened. (Was it worth it?)

So is anyone else thinking about the Homun village migrating closer to us?
>>
>>37475510
Yes, but can we trust them?
>>
>>37475420
Your Giants set about digging up the soft clay by the Ice runoff. After only a week of harvesting one of your Kin gets an idea. Spending a week working by the runoff he builds a small shed by the waterside. The clay is pressed into the gaps of the Hardwood and some of the brush is placed atop its roof. In another week the storeroom is finished, a proud Giant standing beside it. (+75 Units of Clay, +1 Storehouse.)
>Diplo the Homunculi?
>>
Do we know if the Homos can do magic and/or what kind of magic they practice?
>>37475510
>>37475521
It doesn't matter if we can trust them or not. If they're close, it's easier to keep a watchful eye on them. I say try to help move their houses over to us.

You send out a group of Giants to speak to the Homunculi, Jyoti goes with them. After 3 days walking they draw upon the quiet village. Humans scurry about its streets in perfect silence. The trio of Homunculi can be spotted among them, carrying baskets or hauling carts along side their human serfs. Seeing your emissaries they abandon their labors and move to meet you on the edge of town. "HO and greeting, Giants! We did not expect to see from you so soon!"

With a roll like that, yes we should. Tell them of the new Green when convincing them
>>
Rolled 82 (1d100)

>>37475777
Be careful about how we do it though. We've agreed to protect them and they may just try to make us stay with them until we've resolved the conflict.
>>
Rolled 39 (1d100)

>>37475760
Tell them of the new Green and suggest the idea of them moving closer. Also ask why we've never once seen the humans speak.
>>
>>37475760
Oh Hooray!... Didn't see the pastebin link today. I also can't find it in this thread.
>>
I suppose it's possible the Homos have cut the hooman's tongues out or something. Eek.

But yeah, inform them of the Green as leverage to move closer to us.
>>
>>37475822
"Another Green beast has been found in the mountains. We wish to offer you moving towards our home. We do not want to see the same fate befall you again."
The Homunculi look at Jyoti as if he just spoke madness. "Giants, as you can clearly see we have homes here, farms and livestock and families and orchards! Surely you can not expect us to simply pack in decades of our lives and move to your lands!" They motion to the largest building in their village, the stone house made especially for your hunters when they assisted in winter. "If anything we would ask you move here, your tribe has no permanent structures made of stone and mortar. While your fields are newly made surely they could easily be recreated here?" They speak with the same level sureness they always have. Behind them the humans move quietly about their labors.

Keep speaking with them. Get their opinion of the green and see if they know of where they may be coming from. We also had the wolves that may become a problem again. They've been here longer so maybe they know
>>
Rolled 96 (1d100)

Ask the about more knowledge of our surroundings, maybe a nice map
>>
Rolled 87 (1d100)

>>37475992
Are the Green things a new menace? What did their research of the dead one turn up?

We can't protect you properly without you being close at hand. We can help transport everything they would need with our brute strength and our mammoths
>>
>>37476166
Even if they don't move, they could probably give us some supplies for the trip. If we're going to keep a check on things and take out the predators, the least they could do is make the travelling easier for us.
>>
Another option is to ask them for a doctor so that we don't die protecting them.
>>
>>37476230
Or some of the humans to accompany us. The last thing we need is to die out protecting them while they keep growing in number.
>>
>>37476260
Yah... We hate humans though. Not sure how that'll work
>>
>>37476100
>>37476066
"We once had... Issues with humans. How do you do you keep them so... Well lead?" Jyoti tries his best to tactfully ask.

Raising one eyebrow the Homunculi speak "We lead them because we saved them. We teach them to listen and they listen. When we give them instructions they do ask they are asked."

Jyoti nods, his brow furrowed "I cant help but wonder if The Green are a new threat to you and your people? If it is you surely know now the danger it presents-"
"We are well aware of its dangers last time since last time, that is why we reached an agreement with your Tribe, protection for teaching on agriculture. A fair deal, dont you agree?"
"Yes, but surely we can protect you better if you were clos-"
"We will not abandon our homes." They motion towards the massive stone house. "This was built to house the guards we expected to have sent from your Tribe weeks ago. Instead it stands empty. We upheld our part of the bargain, we hope you intend to do the same regardless of where our homes are." The Homunculi speak with a tone that is both indignant and frustrated. Something seems to upset them, surely it couldnt have been your offer?

I gotta get going to bed too. work in 6 hours.

We should make Ice Shard Macuahuitl too

>>37476368
Modding Jyoti lets out a deep breath. "I understand, we will set a guard here and rotate them out every week, is this agreeable to you?"
The Homunculi immediately nod in agreement. "Thank you, we apologize for being so short with you." They close their eyes for a moment "Sadly we do not have any goods to send you home with this time, the first harvest should be in late spring... 14 sunrises." Your party turns and leaves. 2 Giants remain in the village. "We hope your stay is a calming one." The Homunculi say, before 2 of them set off towards the humans, leaving one silent Blue-skin to accompany your Giants.

Heres a basic map of the area between us and the Homunculi, each square is something like 1-2 miles or someshit. Use yourheads with it.

When are the Homonculi gonna kill us? They made the Green, they have stolen the speech or tongues of the humans, their Lab is underground. They want to experiment with Giant flesh.
>>
>>37476536
So do we have to actively search for the kid? Or is she gonna show up again?

>>37476577
I agree that paranoia is definitely the route we should stick with.

>>37476577
Idk man, Im still getting a chuckle about you all being so worried about them. They seem pretty passive to me. Whats the worst that can happen?

Depends on the rolls, really. Did you see your bin entry?

>>37476620
I did! Inb4 first to die in the battle for the cave.

Seriously guys we should check n our giants like once a week. The last line scares me "We hope your stay is a calming one." that's some brainwashing hints If I've ever seen them.

Giants are going to rotate every turn, thats something I stupidly left out.
