November 7: Natives
Divvied sanctum border state
Flags at mast in colonnade
Furrowed terrace owned and paid
Cash amassed for profit made
Set a contract
Set a post
Set a fort and army host
Set a congress plied by most
To lord the low
And tax the ghost.
Prompt: It seems the bees overlooked an initial dwelling. This group lived here for a long time before the bees. Roll the die to see who they are.
The Gilly-Garucks. A happy commune, quick to integrate. Value sharing, family, open borders, and good will.
Children of Wall. A reclusive bunch, introverted. Value observation, suspicion, and exit strategy.
The Dreglings. A scavenging gang, abandoned by their kin. Value survival, dominance, and utility.
Bitter Warren. An antagonistic nation, strict in government. Values process, law, and proper place.
Confederacy of Nai. A decentralized power, split into loose districts. Values independence, social rule, and tradition.
The Ashen Stormseed. A damaged clan, struck by a disaster. Values safety, weapons, and resources.
Write: How well do the bees get along with these natives? Are there problems arising? Do they offer assistance? Do they know anyone else the bees have already met?
