RP Realm: The Reforged Realm (Hidarugami)
On the banks of a river huddle a tribe of small creatures. Their wide expressive eyes are following the fish darting through the waters while their taloned fingers twitch greedily. Some of them have already started to experimentally chew on the ferns and bushes around them while others are climbing trees to sample the leaves. This hungry nimble people have an insatiable appetite, that much is immediately clear. Even so, they are a newborn race like all the others, they're beholding the world for the first time. As a blank slate they are open for molding and guiding, and that is just what their god is about to arrive to do.

OOC: Feel free to write your gods arrival to their new people! In your post you'll want to include at least two things. The first, letting the race know how they should regard you. The second, giving them guidance to how they should approach this strange new world they've found themselves in.

RP Realm: The Reforged Realm (Hidarugami)
Seris moved along the glade following her nose until she came along one of the curious smells
This one would now be recognized her own people. Seris didn't have a following before, much less mortals she believed. There was always eat or be eaten. The rule of predators who stayed atop the pyramid.

Walking towards the gathering of the small creatures, Seris spoke, "Greetings little devourers. I am Seris, the Goddess of Devouring. I am thy Goddess, and Thou are my people, the Hidarugami."

Waving for them to come in closer, Seris spoke again, "I see ye nawing and twitching with hunger, ye must be starving my teethlings. Why not hunt? Together ye can bring down opponents twice thy size. With thy head thou may make many ways to gather food."

Walking over to the river, Seris stepped into the water until almost her waist was within. Her arm raised across her chest as her hand was flat and outstretched.

Awaiting for the right moment of the fish to travel near, Seris sliced her hand into the water grasping onto the fish with her claws. Looking to her people, she bite into the fish eatting most of it in a few bites and tossing the rest to them. "If thou are hungry one must learn to hunt and survive to eat. Shelter will bely thy true power. If thou adapts and overcomes the world, thou holds the power to devour those that are thy prey. Only remember this, thou are not to prey on each other. Help each other thou must."

Stepping out of the river, Seris went into the bushes and grabbed a few berries on a branch. Plucking them Seris ate it then tossed the rest to her people, "Gathering the bounty of the land is wise, if thou takes care of it and allow it to breed and regrow. If ye eat too much of something instead of allowing it to live, thou will eventually run out of food and starve. This can be applied to the creatures as well as the plant life."

Grabbing some of the berries, Seris dug a hole with her feet's claws. Dropping the berries inside, Seris covered it with dirt. Going to the fresh water of the river, Seris cupped her hands and brought the water to where she dug the berries. "If ye take care of the life you plan to eat, it will take care of thou."

Standing up from pouring the water, Seris crossed her arms. "If thou live off the land, make the land thine. Shelter coddle thee from the land. However, defenses and a base are important. Farming the land and it's creatures and ensuring their protection is wise. Weapons are weak, toughen one's claws and teeth. Armor is weak, toughen one's hide and muscle to protect from others. Use thy speed and agility. A clean kill together is a bounty for those involved. The bigger the prey, the bigger the meal."

OOC: Assuming this has just taken place since the realms are just now being made public.

The Hidarugami huddled around this strange visitor. Their wide yellow eyes blinked up at Seris as they listened to the god of devouring introduce herself. They listened to her explain the wisdom of sustainable appetites of farming and shelter and of spurning artificial weapons or protections in favor of natural versions. Newborn and impressionable, they nodded along unquestioningly. (It was very much unlike another meeting that had taken place between a god and their people.)

New Trait Acquired: Militant Survivalists

One of the Hidarugami stood up afterwards. "You hear that? Only eat most of everything! Not everything!" The outspoken Hidarugami reiterated what Seris had imparted. "And if someone else is trying to eat the little bit we left, then we should bite them, otherwise they'll eat everything! Or if you're hungry eat them! Seris says we should hunt bigger things!"

Seris laughed deeply with amusement. "My Hidarugami, thy should stay to the lands ye have expanded across. Ye should farm and gather, replinish the food sources thee eats. Protect it yes, but do not eat our neighbors. Just our predators and preys. If we eat the other people, they will all grow angry with us. Ye have already pushed one people out, they will not be pushed again, nor do I think the others will either."

Seris pointed back at the seed she planted and watered, "This seed will make more bushes to grow more berries. If thee makes farm for one's appetite there will be enough for all."

Seris waved her hand, "Come, come. Let us go hunt, sink our teeth into fresh meat!"

And so Seris took the newborn Hidarugami hunting. They ducked beneath low branches, crept through the underbrush and sprang upon prey that did not hear their approach. And it was a good hunt. So the Hidarugami and Seris stalked their expansive territory.
