If you wish to play, you are the grown grandchild of a woman named, or titled, Venerable Mother of All People. Nobody knows if she has another name. Nobody knows if her husband was the only man who created babies with her. Nobody is even sure who the mother of her husband was but it is whispered it was one of her own children. She is an enigma.
of the valley.
We will use forum names.
Venerable Mother of All People smiles at you.

He has a few survival effects with him in a backpack, a gun with a few hundred bullets, a compass (which may ...[text shortened]... fact he is 200,000 years in his own past.
He is now on a new life path unbeknownst to him.
Originally posted by sonhouseOMG NO EQUIPMENT.
He found some of his equipment, his magnifying glass and a few fishing hooks and line. The rest has disappeared in the huge rainstorm last night. He hopes to find more of his stuff later but now he is in a desperate fight for sheer survival. He needs protean and calories very soon, his carefully selected K rations gone in the storm. He spies a slow moving lizard and carefully takes aim with a large rock.....

There is a short earthquake that throws sonhouse off balance into the muck. The small frog jumps in the water. The big frog is still staring at sonhouse.
Far off to the west the volcano is puffing forth more smoke than it was a moment ago.

I was on a raft of logs trying to escape a bunch of rabid apes and I am so sorry the logs destroyed your mom's house'. "Look, I'll make it up to you, I'll help you rebuild it all, ok?"
Sonhouse asks the frog if it was once a princess he had kissed. The frog rises up out of the water looking something like the frog footman in Alice and Wonderland would if he were naked:

Originally posted by AThousandYoungSonhouse begins with his bowie knife he just recovered and starts helping the beaver redo his mom's house. A bit of camaraderie ensues and they happily start chopping wood, teeth against bowie knife. Sonhouse is laughing so hard he falls off the log he is busily chopping into smaller twigs, falls into the water and much hilarity commences.
The beaver-person stands to it's full height - which isn't that tall, maybe five feet - and points at the little beaver-hut walls. It snarls and clicks then points to its' sharp front teeth and glares at sonhouse fiercely. It gestures to where the branches have been cut and then back to it's tooth.
Originally posted by AThousandYoungLosing the Bowie knife was devastating. No longer superior to the local life forms, Sonhouse starts the work of making tools with flint and obsidian he finds in abundance. He studied the ways of the ancients and their ability making tools from bare rock. He knew burning rock in a fire makes the rock more able to be flaked so set about making a fire with a couple of sticks and bits of dried moss.
Sonhouse is learning how hard it is when you can't find your fancy manufactured devices. No bowie knife.
