Forehead-smack. "Right, we went over this already. Okay, time to head to the river for water for axes, I guess."

"There's supposed to be other fruit," Yttren interjects. "What other kinds of fruit, where?"

Permalink

{is lots! apple in forest and plum in desert and mango in jungle and cherry in blood forest and black cherry in shadow forest! and date and coconut on shore! lots fruit!}

Permalink

"Okay...is there a way to cause new trees to come into existence? They won't cooperate with the normal ways." 

Permalink

{cut down tree, tree give seed. sometimes one sometimes two sometimes three sometimes none. mostly two. and when kill night monster, sometimes give seed for same place tree.}

Permalink

"Okay. Leuska, you fly around and gather as much fruit as you can. Luvei and I will go to the river for axe purposes, then come back and start building a shelter. You four," he added, pointing at the halflings still up the apple tree, "can stay here and keep track of where everyone is for when anyone comes back to check and look after the fruit Leuska brings and so on. At some point one of you can go fetch the Elves." 

"Yeah, okay," Mirrin says agreeably. Fondai rolls over on her branch and shrugs, staring up at the sky. 

"Then when we've got a basic shelter and a good pile of fruit, Leuska, can you guide us around to fruit trees so we can cut them down for seeds so we can get an orchard around here?" 

Permalink

"Yeah, sounds legit." 

Permalink

"How long do trees take from planting to bearing fruit? How often do they bear fruit after that?" he asks the spirits. "It'll matter for how many trees it makes sense to cut down for seeds versus taking the long trek to repeatedly."

Permalink

{tree grow up in few days,} says the forest spirit. {is small and then small and then small and then small and then big. fruit come every day usually.}

Permalink

"...Okay. Well, uh, that's extremely convenient and I already knew the trees don't work like trees, so, you know, I'll keep any whining internal. Thanks."

Permalink

The forest spirit gives Yttren a comforting pat on the leg with its tiny pointy arm. {sorry about trees.}

Permalink

"It's okay," he says, leaning down to pat the little spirit back. 

Permalink

"Spirits are adorable." 

Permalink

The forest spirit does a happy little bounce.

{could look for more spirits too if you want!} it suggests. {water spirit knows about crafting and stone spirit knows about weapons and monsters.}

Permalink

"Where do you think they are?"

Permalink

{water spirit in ocean! stone spirit in cave!}

Permalink

"That makes sense...I don't think I saw any caves when I was flying, though."

Permalink

The forest spirit nods its round little self. {cave is underground. have to dig to find.}

Permalink

"Huh. That'll be a job for when we're better-equipped, I think. Are there monsters underground?"

Permalink

Little round nod.

Permalink

"Definitely waiting until we're better equipped. Anything else I should know before I leave to collect fruit?"

Permalink

Little round shrug!

Permalink

"Okay!"

She takes off fruit-wards. Luvei and Yttren take off for the river. Mirrin climbs down from the tree and takes off elf-wards.

Permalink

The elves have finished doing elf things and are discussing where everyone else went and what their next moves should be when Mirrin arrives.

"Hey guys," Mirrin says.

"Hi. What's going on?" Aduva asks. 

"Well, uh, it turns out this place is way weirder than previously expected," Mirrin says a little awkwardly.

"...Weirder how.

"Well, you see, it turns out this place runs on weird bullshit rules where the trees don't act like trees and you get seeds by cutting down trees instead of out of fruit and the trees grow from the seeds in a matter of days and monsters spontaneously generate and also there are these adorable spirit things."

One of the adorable spirit things waves cheerfully. {hello friends!}
