Scene 14: First Contact
This is a scene intended for Bone, Capin, Grunk, Mishlei, Neerga, Nin-kagina, Schfung, and Zolkur-Dakia. If I leave anyone out, please tell me.

As Vem leads the Cloud People on her wobbling path through and over the hills, something happens. The group hears the call of an owl nearby. Vem answers with a call that sounds like a hawk's screech. A figure appears in response nearby. A tall and savage-looking woman armed with an axe appears over a small ridge. Behind her, a crouching man in a loin cloth pops his head out to see for himself.

Vem addresses the armed woman, "I return with the wise woman, Nin-kagina. She brings companions of her own including a wife she has claimed among the Cloud People. How fares our queen?"

Scene 14: First Contact
Vug's quick bow was a little too quick. The fierce-looking Scorpion Woman to whom he bowed drops into a defensive posture. She points a bone knife at the prowler.

Bone yes, you can see this pack of travelers. The hunchbacked woman who is leading them is a figure whom you recognize from the Scorpion Women. She vanished a few days previously. The rest of these figures are strangers.

Schfung was suddenly on alert, as the warrior woman came on all agressive.
He took several steps backwards, with his hands up, trying to defuse the tension a little.

"Its not wise to bring a knife to a bow fight, warrior, and I'm very good with my bow. Put it away and I will put away my arrow.," she said her bow leveled at the woman but not drawn back but she could fire before the woman got close enough to threaten her.

Scene 14: First Contact
From his vantage point, Grunk tensed, and looked about for a place to hide. The woman may have only a bone knife, but she still looked like might win against a bow... even two.

Bone grabbed up a few more stones as he turned his head to see what was transpiring. Tucking the stones in his bag Bone got up just enough to move over to a few berries to pick as he watched the two women.

I haven't heard from Zolkur-Dakia's player for a while now. Rather than delaying Bone's participation in the game, I am just going to run Zolkur as a PC for a while. I am just keeping her warm until the player returns. ~Gamemaster

Faced with Neerga's challenge, Zolkur-Dakia put her bone dagger away in her belt. In an accent very much like Ven's, the warrior woman spoke to the group. "Cloud People, I am a scout of the Scorpion Women. Know that you are in the territory of the Scorpion Women now. Our queen is frail but still lives. She has commanded me to escort you to her side." She turns away and waves in a follow-me gesture.

Ven adds, "The crisis must have gotten worse while I was gone. The queen would not rush us unless she expects to soon join the dust. You and your people should not tarry, Nin-kagina." Ven points to Bone and says, "If your burdens grow heavy, this slave gathering up gravel can carry some for you."

"I meant no offense, Nib-kagina is my wife and I care for her, and my people, I'm Neerga the crafter and huntress your brave and fierce I can see where my wife gets her spirit for life.," Neerga said simply moving next to her wife.

For those with the knowledge of such things, Mishlei has ink markings and carries the fetish for the medicine man.  He is also marked as a healer and carries a very much prized pack with herbs and materials used in the natural healing arts.

He does not speak, as it may be disrespectful in their culture, but merely nods and follows.
