I ain't never heard a head go "gwang", lest it was made outta metal. :P I'd say dok, y'know when you knock on the side of the head it goes dok dok? Or maybe that's just because mine is empty, I dunno. XD Well this is supposed to be your name, so do you wanna be named Tisk Gwang or Tisk Dok or ? Dok Tsk, Gwang Tisk... Gw'doktsk. Gwansk, Gw'dok. Dok dok'Tsk. Dokk'tsk. Dokktch. Dok'Tok. Starting to sound like an inuit name... It would be nice if we can make it sound nice, but then again they aren't that advanced either so. As long as it works for you.

To be honest, I'm not good with sounds, gwang was just what I imagined hard impact would be but well... I think I will go with Dokktch. One word is easier.

btw, Goss, do you also want me to start up a character thread for Dokktch and call it Prehistoric Pitch characters and transpose the info. we could settled on across so that we could have a dedicated thread for all characters? I think Muro did it that way for his games but not sure whether that's the norm.

The thing is, onomatopoetic sounds vary something fierce between languages. I dunno why this is, but I do know it is so, so what sounds weird to me may not sound weird to you and vice versa. No worries there. Dokktch, got it. That was one of my favorites. :)

I'm not really sure on what to call the campaign, the pitch was just that, a pitch. But I guess it'll do for a name, or maybe something like... The Morrow of the Cave Dwellers... Hmm, TMCD. Yeah that works. The lore won't get fleshed out until after we've made some headway. So yes please, go ahead and do that. I'm gonna shoot for posting something up this weekend now that you have a name.

Great :thumbup:
Goss, I would presume the cavemen share their food within the clan/tribe but do they do it in a way such that alphas always keep the food and then distribute as needed or they distribute once and for all upon the finish of the hunt? Was thinking that Dokktch would now wander over to her mother to eat (presuming that her mother keeps the food) now and then start doing other things but just want to make sure that that's okay in the cavemen world.

When in doubt, just watch a nature documentary with chimps or gorillas, maybe with a little lion, wolf and baboon scattered in there. Basicly they eat what they can get their hands on, if they were out hunting the alphas gets the best parts, then the betas, then the deltas etc, eating until sated. And of course at any point a higher ranking individual may take whatever they please from a lower ranking one. However if they're in a good mood and has a good relationship with a lower ranking individual, and provided there's enough to go around, they may feel inclined to share, so begging can pay off. Younger individuals, especially children, are given a lot of leeway. Besides social standing, the older you are, the more respect you get obviously.

Just how old is Dokktch btw? A teen, young adult or adult? Life expectancy is obviously going to be shorter, so "maturity" is probably going to be lower than today, like the ancient egyptians. But I won't be keeping track of individual age, so just a ballpark estimate is enough.

I haven't actually thought abt Dokktch's age but let's make her a teen so that the sheltered aspect comes through more.

Right, great. Got everything you need then? The idea is that I'm not the only one to come up with all the lore and all the answers really, if you want something to go a certain way or be a certain way, as long as it's within reason, go for it. You say something and then I build on that, that's the idea. If I get stuck or if you get stuck, we'll discuss it here, but otherwise assume that it's okay. If you do create an outcome though, try and keep it open ended if at all possible. Mmm yeah, I think that's about it.

Yep, pondering on my first post. I've written down the first paragraph but was half engaged on the Art quest that I'm collabing with the other Moon so delayed. Was originally aiming to finish yesterday but well... will definitely post today.

Oops, bit of a misunderstanding I see, my bad. When I came up with most of those words, I started out by coming up with names you see. So for instance Neh'Tarab Ova'Foy, is actually a name. Even though it could be used in a sentence, it's a bit clunky, not to mention confusing since, are you talking about that person or are you talking about that act described within the name. Ma'Ndel Toofi is the full name of your brother, but I figured you'd just call him Toofi, but yes it can also be used for playful wrestling.

I included footnotes to the lexicon to note when something is a name, and to clarify each individual word.

Btw, you don't need to refer to actions/things that you observe using these words, like for instance, "She saw that Toofi had already gathered a group of teenagers around himself and they were engaged in Ma'Ndel Toofi." Here you can just say, they were wrestling, but if you're speaking to someone or otherwise trying to communicate, then we'll use these other words, okay?  :) Hope that clears it up.

Oh, I didn't realise that most of the words were names even though I did note that my siblings and mother's names were part of the dictionary.

Right, I changed the bit about wrestling in my post.

Apologies for the slow pace, I've been really swamped lately. :( Will get something up once I return. The thing about creativity is that, it only strikes me occasionally, but once I get it to a bit more fleshed out point It'll start to flow better. So please bear with me for the time being.
