Question People:
"You can track but lack weapons? Ha! that's the opposite of everyone else here! We can use you, if only to break off from the main group. And that dog sounds useful. Be sure to bring food for the trail."

Demonstration People:
"Fine tracking for a mortal. Stealth needs work, but he knows the basics. Familiar with the bow. For just part of the meal, he's probably worth the gamble. He'd be especially useful on a multi-day trip."

He can choose between either of those two groups, or grab a stick and be a beater. Let me know what he chooses.

Peter will provision himself and go with the questioning group that seems to value him as a tracker.

He will borrow, rent or buy a bow if he is able.

Does he prefer to buy the bow or to rent it? No one is "renting" bows per se, but he can borrow one in exchange for a gift*... somehow that matters to them. That night, he dreams of oversized lizards and giant rats with oversized tusks... is that in these woods?

He sets out with the five divinities in the morning:
  • Urs-Pen, A warrior God and sibling to two others. Carries a Bow and a spear
  • Yal-Pona, A Goddess of the wild, who isn't armed but seems like the main tracker. one of the siblings
  • Pal-Ursta, A city Patron and one of the siblings. He carries a spear.
  • Tym-Burzu, A city God with javelins and who can run quite quickly
  • Gim-Hyris, A city Patron with more muscles than could possibly be natural. He has a giant spear with a long enough edge to cut.

They spend most of the morning walking out to the good hunting grounds: most the game near the camp have already been hunted out. Goliath follows, as does the Raven. Yal-Pona asks if the bird is with Peter, or if they should go ahead and bag it.

* I rolled his search of IQ vs 11.

Peter will buy a bow with his earnings and if he is able to purchase some treats before heading out, he will bring then to share them with his companions. Little gifts for everyone.

He does his best to be helpful and make frends with the group.

The purchases take up the bulk of what he has earned so far, but he can afford it all, and Tar Billik is willing to help.

During the walk out in the morning they're not even trying to hunt, they just talk. Mostly boasting to Peter about deeds seemingly tangential to hunting they performed centuries ago.

I still need a reaction to this.

For a bow and some pasteries? I under the impression that he was ready to go hut shopping.

Peter enjoys the tales and tries to be a good sport. He tells them the comical tales of his and Goliath's early hunting attempts.

Peter would explain Dahlia is with him!

Huts are comparatively cheap and bows comparatively expensive. Anyone can get sticks and vines and mud here. The skill to make a bow is much more rare.

They laugh, as long as he tells his stories short enough.

Yal-Pona: "I thought that might be the case. I can do that when I use my power: what are you using?"


******************************


When they get far enough out, they begin looking around for signs of animals. Go ahead and roll survival.

Fair enough. I read to much into the statement that he was going to be the richest around soon...

He will just buy the supplies and treats then and either borrow a bow if offerred or just track and go without one.

"A bit of food here and there, talking to her softly and winning her trust and making friends. There's no magic to it. How does it work with your power?"

"Some of that soft talking, but my power guides me, and it guides the beasts as well. A nudge here, a push there. I can bind the minds of beasts and fowls, of course, but for a companion, friendship works best... brought along by subtle influence. Perhaps I'm too reliant on it."

"I think it would be awesome to be able to talk to critters send little mental messages, but bending the will of an animal seems... I dunno, impolite?"

Peter will find a little time to practice his puff of smoke and see if he can grab that puff and make it into a tiny Karana insect scout to help them track.
