Pigs are a good idea, actually. I think of all the animals that we have seen they breed the fastest, so they are a good source of meat!

I'll help trying to catch some!

boars would be easiest to pen off and breed... deer would be harder but not impossible

Right, as I recall reading somewhere Deer can easily clear an obstacle thats over 7 feet tall.. So it would require a great deal of effort to catch and keep them corralled, unless they were bound.

But keep in mind that Boar are very strong, and unless this pen is very sturdy, they would maybe be able to push it over, also remeber Boar's are diggers, so they could probably just dug under any fence we put up...

Perhaps we could come up with the mana equivalent of an electric fence..

Boar don't particularly dig unless they want underground food- roots, tubers and things. I've never heard of them digging to escape... that and I'm hoping the food will keep them there xD... I'm not sure what to do to keep them from digging...

... Place stones around the perimeter? Hm..

Also, Mussel Farming... I guess that would be less "Creature Taming" or "Beastmastering," but eh...

Don´t forget to aslo ask the Nals about taming. Sure *we* might know how it gets done but our characters never had to tame a wild creature so far in PtP. The Lizards don´t count they were just untrained. Maybe it will not change much but if they have an expert for farming and the flora and for the forest and there should be a beast master of them as well and we might need his help for our future herds of boars, deers and whatever else we want to tame.

We tamed the Tiktikki! Most ferocious beast in all of the underworld ^^.

But yes.. I suppose I will need to ask about animal husbandry up here.. Sigh. I wish we didn't have a 1-advice limit.

Well, if you inquire about it next turn, I'd vote for it (unless something happens that needs very urgent attention).

GUTF Team! TAME Brigade! I have a few potential plans for next week ^^

This will require (from players):
  • 3 advices
  • 9 votes
This will require (from the clan):
  • Rope
  • Small sandbags
  • Bait: Meat, bread
  • 1 large fishing net
  • 1 Raft
  • 1 or 2 scissors or shears
  • 1 Tent (if it can be spared)

This week we'll be breaking into three "teams"!

Advice (Team) One (Advisor: Aurawyn (Rizalee), 1 volunteer needed)
Asking the Nal: One of us will need to ask the Nal guide about animals, taming and husbandry.

Advice (Team) Two (Advisor: Drakanor (Seraphina), 3 volunteers needed)
Making the Bolas: This will require a length of rope and small sand bags. They don't take too long to make, so three people should be able to fashion a good number in a turn. Hopefully we can make ten or more. (Crafters, would you like something to do? ^^;)

Advice (Team) Three (Advisor: Avidavi (Alulienne), 6 or more volunteers needed)
Catching the birds: This is where I'd like to see the bulk of the enigmatic GUTF Team volunteers go. The plan is thus: take the raft to G21, where our feathered friends are. We'll try baiting the birds with meat or bread, dumping the more preferred of the two and allowing the birds to gather around it. Once they're tightly flocked while gobbling down the food, we'll throw the net over the lot. Back home, we'll clip their wing feathers and stake em down somewhere (Hopefully in a large tent, if it can be spared).


Optional Advices
- "<character name here>, An empath, offers to help calm any caught birds."

If it only takes one person to ask about it, I don't see the harm in it. The more knowledgeable we are, the better.

Still a Work in progress. Need help with the details, or a better plan.


At this point in time I think thats the best Idea, but someone who can draw (Not me!!) Might want to sketch out an aviary, and barn/stable for later use

Sure thing; I'll add you as the advisor. Thanks for the help ^^.

And I can design an aviary, If we need it (That is, if these birds are capable of falconry), then we'll build. If these birds are only good for meat and eggs, they're going in the coops I already designed xD

Edit: Avidavi, If your going to lead the team catching the birds, I'll volunteer to ask the Nals about Local animals, Trapping, Taming, and uses. But we will still need at least 10 people to sign up for that in order for it to become Common knowledge among the clan..

At any rate, when the Events Clear I'll submit "Ask the Nal about Local animals, How to Catch, tame, and keep them, along with their benefits"

Now that the Local Plants class has happened, maybe some of those people would be interested in a "Local Fauna" Class...

Thanks Riza. I updated the plan's post. And thanks for the help, Kear ^^. Hopefully, the same peeps who chose the Nal class on plants will also put in for this one, too.

Edit: Oh, Riza, That advice is a bit too long~
If you'd like, try "Ask the Nal about local fauna: What are valuable, tameable, and farmable?"
