The Sentri What physical characteristic are you adding? (if any) None What two new specialisations does your tribe develop? The Sentri elders, realizing the infighting of the tribe and the danger of a tribal fracture, attempt to draw the Sentri together. Unfortunately for the elders, they cannot think of a way to unify the tribe. Suddenly, a man, unknown to anyone in the tribe, named Tima comes down from Imp'senta, the largest mountain in the range. Through a series of events*, he influences the leadership of the tribe. Two advancements happen to the Sentri: 1. The Sentri organize the Rohi'ki-Timira, or the Festival of the Light. This festival, imagined by Tima and organized by the elders, celebrates the skills of the Sentri each summer. The Sentri gather beneath the mountain to test the skills of the tribe members. To enter the contests, the contestant must have the red eyes and thicker hair - the clear signs of a Sentri ancestor. The contests and feats are determined by the greatest skill in an area: for example, the Sentri have a contest for the greatest hunter, the greatest finder of Siva, the strongest rock lifter, the best craftsman with wood, the most well-trained Imponi, and so on. Whenever that tribesman succeeds in winning his feat in the Festival of Light, he becomes a leader of the tribe in that area. He must train his fellow contestants to match his skills. This festival serves to strengthen the leadership of the tribe, sharpen the skills of the Sentri, and brings the identity of the tribe together. The Sentri are a tribe that celebrates individual skill organized to help the tribe. 2. The Sentri begin to tame animals. The shortage of food becomes apparent to the Sentri. The hated Ingoni block hunting grounds to the south, causing a bigger problem. Tima, the mysterious man from Imp'Senta, suggests the Sentri begin to tame and keep the animals to the north for food and materials. Excluding the already tamed Imponi, these are the animals the Sentri attempt to tame: Names (listed from top down) are: Nopinta Tipinti Sen'tura *Will hopefully be posted as a separate story, preferably before Friday. How aggressive/adventurous or cautious is your tribe? The Sentri become more aggressive and adventurous towards the southern forest and the westward ocean, due to their increased need for food and their large bands of warriors. The Sentri are no longer afraid to fight against the Ingoni - they have fearless leaders to guide them. They also continue to send travelers afar, exploring and returning with tales of other lands. What are your relations with other tribes? The Sentri continue to attempt trade. They establish, as much as possible, a sea-based trade with the Vahaeara, seeking the plants and fish they bring. The Carva continue to be well-received. The Sentri are cautious towards the Baessa and the Traessa. Nevertheless, both are recognized as distant kinfolk and are always welcomed if they wander toward the Mountain. The Rasna are also welcome to visit the mountain, but are carefully watched by the hunters and warriors. The Ingoni go from feared to hated. The Sentri do not wander deep into the forests, but any encroachment upon Sentri land results in retribution for advancing towards Sentri land. Will your people migrate, or remain where they are? The Sentri remain.
