Discussion in 'Eagles' started by Calis, Apr 11, 2011.
We have made contact!!!!!
Received this from "Die Küche" (The kitchen)
Exceelent. Do you have any idea where they are?
Who wants to create a reply? It should be sent at the latest with the save.
I am very much in favor of having a peaceful relationship. Fighting each other could cripple both of our economies while the other continent might be prospering.
They have met Sweet Feather
I'd like to see what they offer in technology first. After that, I wouldn't mind writing a short response. But if someone else wants to do the writing, I'm fine with that as well.
Hey, just threw this together. I'd like to see what others write as well. Can we get at least three more submissions?
Sweet Feather descended down the Mountains and onto the rolling hills, still amazed that only Eagles lived on this planet. He had been on his journey a very long time, finding wondrous things and beautiful views. But was yet to see another human.
With a large lake on his right and the ocean beach on his left, Sweet Feather decided to stop and go fishing. As he cast his small net out and into the water, Sweet Feather wondered what kind of catch this day would bring. Turning back towards his small fire with fish, he noticed movement of the color blue in the hills. It appeared to be a human figure. Yes, a man, and he was moving towards the fire as well.
The two met and talked, and seemed to get along just fine. While they ate the newly caught fish, the man in blue produced a goatskin of ale to drink. It reminded Sweet Feather of the ale Cyc had given him the night before he left Aerie. He would have to be careful not to drink too much….
It seems this blue clad man was from a Tribe that considered themselves chefs. In fact he claimed to be one of The Kitchen people and proceeded to try and tell this Eagle Warrior about his vast collection of recipes. Sweet Feather was amused and listened intently. This man seemed to be captivated with cooking, and the ale apparently helped his mood and expertise. As the night wore on and the ale became scarce, the talking slowed and the talking points became more serious. Past the Gods and the Kings, the discussion boiled down to known technologies. Cooking was not the only craft claimed by the Kitchen nation. Although different than the accrued knowledge of Eagle lore, the Kitchen nation had developed other skills and teachings.
Perhaps the two nations could learn from one another…..
I think that Eclipse also wanted to make a proposal. But we can finalize something when we
1. have the save and see the circumstances and
2. see their offer.
They made this offer ingame:
EDIT: Sorry. They are Masonry and Wheel
How many turns would it take for us to research those techs on our own?
Writing has the same beaker cost as Masonry and the Wheel combined - seems reasonable.
As far as turns go, Masonry 5, The Wheel 5, WC 4, CB 4, IW 8. That's with our current settings. It does seem a reasonable trade.
I see it the same way. So we accept?
Sounds like a good offer to me, I'm in favor of accepting.
Come on. Please someone come up with a better story than what's in post #6.
The Warrior band commonly known as 'Sweet Feather' to those back in Aerie, capital of the Eagle Empire, was encamped on some hills overlooking a samll lake. The men of the 'Sweet Feather' Division were explorers. Having traveled through the vast unknown lands for some time, they looked for new lands, riches, and peoples. So far successful on all but one of those goals, the men bravely continued to explore new lands hoping for contact with other knowledgable peoples.
One day, a fire was spotted in he distance. "What could this be?" they wondered, "Have we finally met a new people after centuries of searching?" The Eagle men began setting large fires in hopes that the other people might see them and come. Their wishes came true several days later. "Greetings," said the leader of the new band of warriors, "we bring news from the people of the Kitchen." Surprised that another people had finally shown themselves and could speak the same lauguage as the Eagle people, the men of 'Sweet Feather' remained silent. "We wish to trade with you," said the Kitchendweller. "We happen to be carrying with us, papers that contain the secrets of The Wheel and Masonry."
Finally speaking, the commander of the 'Sweet Feathers' stated: "We greet you as well, we wish to extend our system of Writing that we developed some years ago to you for use in your lands and cities."
The two leaders shared a meal, then the Kitchendwellers left to go back to their camp. There, they would consider the offer of the Eagle people.
Excellent story, Sparthage, but CB's made me smile reading the first line. I'll have to vote for CommandoBob's effort.
Hey, it did that to me too. I'm in favor of his as well. (I'm allowed to vote against myself, aren't I? )
I would vote for accepting the proposal, and of CommandoBob's version.
