Shanaw & The Family[ | ]

Night After Recruitment.


This dialogue occurs the night after Shanaw is recruited into the camp.


Eirik-Dialogue-Tag

So... What's your name?


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

...


Eirik-Dialogue-Tag

... You don't know how to talk?


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

...


Eirik-Dialogue-Tag

I see you have a tongue, it's sticking out when you eat.



Eirik-Dialogue-Tag

So talk. Now!


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

...



Kari-Dialogue-Tag

Maybe if you asked her nicely, Dad... Hi, I'm Kari. This my dad. He's a bit blunt, but he's great. What's your name?


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

...


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

If you don't talk, we'll have to kick you out of our camp, you know?


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

... Shanaw.


Moira-Dialogue-Tag

What's that?


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

It's her name, dummy.


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

(She waves her head in approbation.)


Moira-Dialogue-Tag

... Good... Another annoying child to look after...


Blod-Dialogue-Tag

Nice to meet you Shanaw. Where do you come from?


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

... Somewhere else.


Blod-Dialogue-Tag

... Okey... Baby steps... What should we ask next?


  • Ask about her people.


Eirik-Dialogue-Tag
What about your people, Shanaw? Your family?


Kari-Dialogue-Tag
Are they as annoying as mine?


Sha-Dialogue-Tag
... Family... Dead.


Moira-Dialogue-Tag
Before or after coming to this cursed island? Have you attacked by Björn too?


Sha-Dialogue-Tag
... Aich-mud-yim brought me here. He wrecked my canoe!


Moira-Dialogue-Tag
Sounds like someone I wouldn't want to meet. A relative of yours?


Sha-Dialogue-Tag
Never! Aich-mud-yim is the devil of men!


Kari-Dialogue-Tag
Devil? Does she mean Loki?


Moira-Dialogue-Tag
Let's just hope she didn't bring this Aich-mud-yim with her in our peaceful camp...


  • Ask about her skills.


Blod-Dialogue-Tag
Tell me, Shanaw, what is your trade? How can you help with the camp?


Sha-Dialogue-Tag
Shanaw can't help with talking.


Eirik-Dialogue-Tag
(We figured as much...)


Sha-Dialogue-Tag
Hunting. Shanaw can help.


Blod-Dialogue-Tag
Yes, you look like someone who lives... close to nature, I'd say.


Moira-Dialogue-Tag
That was a subtle way to tell her she needs a bath... Quick.


Sha-Dialogue-Tag
Smell good for hunt. Sleep good for hunt. Now sleep.



Shanaw & Blodeuwedd[ | ]

Tribe Mother


This event does not appear to have a trigger and occurs randomly


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Are you mother of tribe?


Blod-Dialogue-Tag

I am Kari's mother... And this is already a full-timejob, believe me.


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Yes. Shanaw knows. But are you mother of the tribe?


Blod-Dialogue-Tag

Heh, who am I kidding? In a way, yes, I suppose I am.


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Is husband good to you?


Blod-Dialogue-Tag

Of course! He takes care of us. We would have been burned alive in our own house if he didn't.


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

...


Blod-Dialogue-Tag

What about you, Shanaw?



  • Where is your family?


Blod-Dialogue-Tag

Does your tribe live near? You seem to be more used to this place than we are.


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Not far. Not enough. Tribe doesn't like Shanaw anymore. Shawna hates tribe.


Blod-Dialogue-Tag

What happened? Did you flee from your family?


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

...Aich-mud-yim... Happened... Tribe says Moon spirit lives in Shanaw's heart. But Shanaw is only Shanaw... Aich-mud-yim take their small souls!


Blod-Dialogue-Tag

Shh. Calm down, Shanaw. There is nothing to fear as long as you are with us. Whatever happened with your tribe, I'm sure it can be sorted. People do stupid things sometimes.


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

...You nice... You really Mother of tribe. Mother Fiery Vixen

Blodeuwedd: +Tribe Mother trait


  • Do you have a husband?


Blod-Dialogue-Tag

Do you have a lover, someone who cares about you, who's waiting for you in your tribe?


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

... No. NO! SHANAW NO HUSBAND!


Blod-Dialogue-Tag

...! Okay... Okay... Sorry to pry... Forget it. (Something must have happened... She's furious. And scared.)


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Sorry... Tribe Mother nice with Shanaw, but Shanaw yell.





Hunting with Shanaw


This event does not appear to have a trigger and occurs randomly



Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Tribe Mother! Will you go hunting with Shanaw tomorrow?


Blod-Dialogue-Tag

Hunting? This isn't really my trade, Shanaw. I could, but I think I'm more useful here at the camp.


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Does husband forbid Celestial Vixen from going hunting?


Blod-Dialogue-Tag

No, no... Eirik doesn't forbid me from doing anything... he is not like that.


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

... Really, Tribe Mother?


Blod-Dialogue-Tag

Yes, Shanaw. Why don’t you believe me?



  • Tell me what really happened to you.


Blod-Dialogue-Tag

You can't hide forever, Shanaw. If you tell me, maybe I could help.


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Tell Tribe Mother what?


Blod-Dialogue-Tag

Tell me why you left your tribe. Were you exiled?


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

No. Shanaw left because Shanaw wanted.


Blod-Dialogue-Tag

But what made you leave? Or who?


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Shanaw left because Shanaw didn't want husband.


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Shanaw want free. Like birds and clouds! Shanaw IS free! And...


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

...


Blod-Dialogue-Tag

And what? I'm listening. I won't judge you, Shanaw.


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Nothing.



  • Is something wrong?


Blod-Dialogue-Tag

You don’t look well. Bad memories?


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

... For days, we played and we played, and was great fun. But didn't end well.


Blod-Dialogue-Tag

What didn't end well? What happened, Shanaw?


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

... Shanaw was getting husband. Was supposed to be fun. Was supposed to be fun... But didn't end well!


Blod-Dialogue-Tag

Why? You can tell me.


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Shanaw don’t know. Shanaw sleep now, Tribe Mother.



Shanaw & Eirik[ | ]

Hidden Raven



Eirik-Dialogue-Tag

So, beast-child, you still don’t want to talk to me?


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

...


Eirik-Dialogue-Tag

Fine, I get it. As long as you do your share of the work, I don't care.


  • [[Eirik: -10 to opinion of Shanaw


Blod-Dialogue-Tag

I think you remind her of someone she doesn't want to talk to.


Eirik-Dialogue-Tag

Oh, I'm used to the world hating me for no reason, my love. As I said, it's fine... At least Kari has someone of her age to "talk" to. ljust wish she was a bit more... civilised.


Moira-Dialogue-Tag

Which one of these two animals are you referring to, Eirik?


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

Was it supposed to be funny?



Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Shanaw is animal. Shanaw is Hidden Raven!


Moira-Dialogue-Tag

You are not very well hidden, Hidden Raven. I can see your feathers sprouting from this poor girl.



*So, you made friends with Grumpy Bear?


Moira-Dialogue-Tag

It seems like you two are getting along fine, aren't you?


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Kari not Grumpy Bear! Kari is... Howling She-wolf!


Moira-Dialogue-Tag

Hopefully, the howling part doesn't show too often... yet.


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

Try me! What about you, Old Blabbering Moose?


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

AHA! That's Moira!



Moira-Dialogue-Tag

Grumble... And what about your father, Angry Lamenting Walrus?


Blod-Dialogue-Tag

Come on! I'd say Grumpy Bear was more fitting to Eirik.


Eirik-Dialogue-Tag

And how shall I call you, then? Mama Bear?


Blod-Dialogue-Tag

...!


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Mama Bear, no.


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Celectial Vixen. Blodeuwedd is.




*Hidden Raven?


Eirik-Dialogue-Tag

Why do you call yourself Hidden Raven, if your name is Shanaw?


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

...



Eirik-Dialogue-Tag

... I wish Bjorn would ignore me like you do. Maybe I should try this on him.



Kari-Dialogue-Tag

Dad, could you stop harassing her with your questions, please?


Blod-Dialogue-Tag

Kari... Respect your father, please?


Moira-Dialogue-Tag

Hey, I have a great idea! What about playing "let's all go to sleep before things get worse"?


Eirik-Dialogue-Tag

That sounds like a good idea.


Shanaw & Kari[ | ]

Let's Play a Game.


This event does not have a specific trigger, and will occur randomly once Shanaw has been recruited.


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Wolf Pup Kari... Tell Shanaw about tribe.


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

My tribe? My family, you mean? Well, there's Mom, Dad and my aunt, Moira... They can all be a pain in the ass, but each one in a different way.


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

They don't want play with Kari?


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

Play? Definitely not! Moira can be funny, sometimes... But my parents. They're so booooring...


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Let's play game!


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

... Hmmmmyeaaah. .. Maybe. What are the rules?


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Easy! Shanaw and Kari run and go as far, as fast as possible. First one who runs out of breath loses!



  • Sounds fun, let's play!


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

This is really a silly idea... But I need some silliness at the moment!



Kari-Dialogue-Tag

We'll need to wait a bit until everyone is sleeping... I don’t think my parents would approve.


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Great! Shanaw can’t wait!



(Shanaw and Kari snuck out into the night, and ran under the stars like if there was no tomorrow. Hearts beating, wind blowing, feet thumping. It was foolish, dangerous, and liberating. Running, jumping, falling and laughing, they came back bruised, exhausted, and happy.)




  • I'm not too sure about this...


???





A Moonlight Swim.


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Ready for game, Fox Kari?


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

What now...?


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Night is clear. Perfect for swimming under moonlight! First who turns back loses. Winner ask loser anything. Can't refuse. When everyone asleep, Kari and Shanaw run to the beach. What do you say, Howling She-wolf?



  • Absolutely not!



  • Sounds like a plan.


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

You're batshit crazy, Shanaw. That's what I like about you...



Kari-Dialogue-Tag

Let's do this. Crazy is better than boring!


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Kari will love game. Better than fun... Makes Kari feel alive!



(Once everyone fell asleep, they ran to the sea and spread their clothes on the rocky beach. Two young pale shapes went across the chilling blackness, like swift daggers into the night. They swam wildly under the cruel moon, until they felt there would be no turning back. Neither wanted to lose. But both wanted to live, so they called it a draw. And hardly made it back. They laid down side by side on the wet pebbles, breathless, shivering and smiling, until dawn found them.





A Risky Game.


This event occurs if the player chooses "Sounds like a plan." during "A Moonlight Swim"


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Pssst, Kari, Shanaw have idea for REALLY great game...


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

Yeah? Something that will get us both killed?


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

No! But there is risk. No fun without risk, yes?


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

Where would the fun be ifwe weren't stranded on a deadly island and bullied by violent thugs?


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Listen now! Shanaw know where Bjorn's man patrols every night. Alone. Always follows same path along seashore. Then sits on rock and watches sea. Every time, so drunk man falls asleep for long time. Shanaw and Kari steal man pants while man snores. What Kari say?



  • No, this is TOO risky.
Kari-Dialogue-Tag

There isn't much to win, but there is A LOT to lose. No, Shanaw, we can't do this.



Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Why no??? Poor idiot man always drunk, never see us coming.


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

And then we'll have Bjorn's killers on our doorstep in the morning for a little revenge.


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

No way! We're not just risking our lives here, we're risking the lives of everyone in the camp.


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Pfff. Pussycat girl from Pussycat tribe. Shanaw will play alone with man.



Kari-Dialogue-Tag

Whaaat? Don't do it, Shanaw! You'd be endangering everyone!


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Afraid, always afraid! Shanaw is hunter, not hunted. Choose side Kari.


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

Seriously, forget it. It's a BAD idea. Please, Shanaw!


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Fine, fine, urgh... Shanaw won't do it tonight. Maybe tomorrow...



  • I'm in.


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

I'd be happy to fight back, we've cowered in fear for too long...



Kari-Dialogue-Tag

But we can't be seen! If he links us back to the camp, we'll run into really big trouble. So if we're not totally sure he's sleeping, we give up.


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Bah! Hit him on head. Hard.


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

No! This is risky enough. We do it my way or we don't.


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Fine, fine... Still better than not playing game...

(And so they crawled in the dark, stealthy as young wolves. The man was already there, sitting in front of the ocean, his head down, a heavy bag next to him. Shanaw approached silently and then reached for his bag. But not silently enough. As the man suddenly awoke, he grabbed Shanaw’s hand and drew his blade. Before he could act, Kari kicked him in the stomach with all her strength. He fell down the cliff with a muffled groan, breathless, his eyes wide with surprise. He bounced a couple of times on sharp rocks before the sea's blackness swallowed him. Shanaw and Kari gazed at each other, without a word. The bag contained a few useful supplies.)

Blood Bond.


This event occurs if the player chooses "I'm in" during "A Risky Game". Unlike most events, this one occurs the afternoon immediately preceding the "A Risky Game" event the night before.


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

...


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

...


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

So what?! Kari and Shanaw killed bad man. Kari and Shanaw should be happy!


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

Dummy, it's not that easy! If Bjorn learns that we killed one of his men... Not only he will come for us, but maybe he will kill EVERYONE in the camp. Because of us...


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

... Shanaw will protect Kari from Evil Bjorn.


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

That's not the problem... Urgh, you don't understand... If my mom learns about it... I would rather face Bjorn...


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Tribe Mother doesn't have to know! It's Kari and Shanaw secret now. Don't tell anyone. Trust?


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

...



  • I trust you.


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

I trust you Shanaw. We share a special bond now.



Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Secret, yes. Bond. Blood bond.



(As she says these words, Shanaw swiftly cuts her fingertip with a knife. She licks a bit of the blood flowing, then points her finger at Kari.)


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Blood bond.


(Kari gazes into the eyes of Shanaw, to see her soul. She slowly advances her mouth towards Shanaw's bloodied finger. She gently puts it in her mouth, and instinctively rolls her tongue on the wounded area. The taste is strong and salty, but attenuated by the warmth she felt in her upper torso.)




  • You're just trouble.


???





Wanna Go Hunting Together?


This event occurs if the player chooses "I trust you" during "Blood bond".


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

Hey Shanaw! Wanna go hunting together?


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

YEAH! Let's go Wolf Puppy! First to shoot rabbit with arrow wins!


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

Ahaha wait for meeee!


(Kari and Shanaw went hunting together for a few hours. All their running and jumping and uncontrollable laughter made the hunt... Not very bountiful. But at least they had a lot of fun. )



Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Ahaha Kari and Shanaw very bad hunters...


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

We'll call it a draw... We're equally mediocre aha!


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

... Shanaw likes to pass time with Kari Friend. No, more than friends! Kari is like sister Shanaw never had. Teehee!



Kari-Dialogue-Tag

...



  • Likewise.


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

It's true that at least, when I'm with you I'm never bored... That's a BIG change in my life! Hehe. I'm glad mom and dad accepted you in the camp, Shanaw. It wouldn't be the same without you...



Sha-Dialogue-Tag

... LAST ONE AT THE CAMP IS LOSER!



Kari-Dialogue-Tag

HEY! You cheat!!! Wait for me!



  • Joke

???





Gloomy Cave


This event occurs if the player chooses "Likewise" during "Wanna Go Hunting Together".


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

Hey, Shanaw! I've found a hyper cool gloomy cave not far from camp...We go together?


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Cave...? Gloomy...? Of course Kari and Shanaw go!!!


(Karl and Shanaw snuck out of the camp and reached a dark cave, only lit by moonlight.)


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

SO COOL!


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

You think a bear could have lived here?


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Shanaw will seek footprints!


(The two of them continued to talk and laugh for a while. Then they got warm by a campfire they lit in the cave.)



Kari-Dialogue-Tag

You never told me about that scar on your body...


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

... Tshituashk stabbed Shanaw with knife. On wedding night.


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

Wow... Your kin have really strange traditions...


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

... Not tradition. Tradition is man go to bed with bride. But Shanaw didn't want to. Tshituashk gets angry. Shanaw gets angry. Stab. Dodge. Kill.


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

...! I didn't know...


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Running away. Far. Hidden like raven in the night.


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

...


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Don't make sad face, baby cat! Shanaw alive, and Kari is friend! Look what Shanaw took from camp...


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

Beer? But... You're crazy?!


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Wanna try?


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

...



  • You're crazy! Yes!


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

Hel yeah! Bring on the booze!



(Shanaw and Kari share a full bottle of beer, taking turns at drinking straight from the bottle.)



(After opening her heart to Kari, Shanaw feels lighter. All her tensions have faded away.)



(They make silly jokes... they laugh... they roll on the floor... Their vision becomes blurry.)



(As Shanaw clumsily takes the bottle, her hands touch Kari's. She lingers, lost in a haze. They are getting closer and closer, their legs are now curled up together. Touching each other feels good. They feel alone, happy and connected. Naturally, gently, as Shanaw was reaching for the bottle Kari was hiding behind her back, their lips met... They froze, lips against lips, wondering what was going on. Time stood still. Shanaw instinctively pressed a kiss on Kari's lips, softly. Their lips slowly moved apart, and they opened their eyes, looking deeply at each other.)



(It only lasted a split second, and then Shanaw jumped on her feet before Kari had a chance to say anything.)


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

FIRST ONE AT CAMP WINS! Kari will never catch Shanaw hehehe!!!





Stolen Pants


This event occurs if the player chooses "You're crazy! Yes!" during "Gloomy Cave".


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

Who stole my pants?! I said. WHO. STOLE. MY. FUCKING. PANTS?!?



Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Hehehehehe. Boohoo, Bear Cub Kari lost her pants? Hehe.


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

Again?! It's not fun anymore, Shanaw!



Kari-Dialogue-Tag

Give them back to me! You're such a child sometimes, urgh! GROW UP!


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Kari mad?


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

Fuck you.


(Kari ferociously turns her heels back to camp after running after Shanaw... But... Shanaw throws at her back a disgusting ball of dirt... Right into her hair...)


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

AHAHAHA! Shanaw is best thrower! Right on target!


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

URGH! BUT YOU ARE A FUCKING MORON OR WHAT?!



Kari-Dialogue-Tag

You PISS ME OFF!


(Kari sits down in the dirt and starts crying...)


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

...


(Shanaw feels dumb... She slowly approaches the poor Kari.)


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

S-... Sorry Kari Friend... Shanaw sorry... Didn't mean harm...


(A tear falls from Shanaw's eyes.)



Kari-Dialogue-Tag

...



  • Make a scene.


???



  • That's ok...


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

Sorry to have yelled... I'm just... So tired.


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Kari not mad at Shanaw? *sniff*


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

No silly... I like you the way you are, you know it.



(Suddenly, Kari tackles Shanaw and pins her to the ground, in the dirt!)


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

You fell for my trap, dummy! Now I win!


(The two of them wrestle on the ground. Kari has the upper hand and firmly grips the hands of Shanaw. Shanaw manages to make them roll, putting Kari beside her. She is pinning her down on the ground, against her chest. Kari manages to insert her leg between Shanaw's legs, and make her roll on the side. Kari 's pants gets ripped during the fight, but she laughs at it, still wrestling her friend.)



(They continue for a while, laughing, covered in mud. They don't hesitate to take a firm grip at each other. But sometimes, the touch is softer, like two dancers holding each oth er’s waist. They got back to the camp covered in mud and exhausted, but even closer than before.)





Fake Fight.


This event occurs if the player chooses "That's ok..." during "Stolen Pants". Unlike most events, this one occurs the afternoon immediately preceding the "Stolen Pants" event the night before.


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

OH MY GODS!!! THIS TIME I'LL KILL YOU!


(Kari runs after a giggling Shanaw, yelling insults, in direction of the forest.)


Blod-Dialogue-Tag

My, my... These two don't seem to get along after all... I hope they will be okay.


(Kari lost track of Shanaw near a beautiful river, the surface shining in the sun. Suddenly, Shanaw jumps from behind a large tree and pushes Kari in the water! But Kari knew Shanaw was up to something, and took a grip on her hand... The two of them are now sitting in water, laughing.)


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

Ahahahaha... You should have seen the look on my mother's face! It was a good idea to pretend having a fight... Easy way out of this boring camp!


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

YES! Wolf Pup Kari is genius!


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

We're quite fine here, don't you think? Water is nice and warm... It's sunny... Quiet... We could almost forget our life is threatened by a bloodthirsty giant man and his grunts.



Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Shanaw forgets everything when Kari is with Shanaw!


(Shanaw's comment drew Kari's attention. She looked at her. Their eyes met. Shanaw's face had never been so beautiful. Or had she never noticed before?)



  • Kiss her.


(Kari felt a warmth in her stomach, which urged her to kiss her friend. Her heart was thumping like crazy, but as soon as their lips met, and Shanaw kissed her back, only warmth was left. Shy at first, their embrace became passionate as Shanaw took control. She caught her breath, looked at Kari with fire in her eyes, and kissed her again. This time, Shanaw held Kari's neck while giving her a wild kiss, massaging her hair. Kari was lost in a turmoil of new feelings rising in her body. They stopped kissing, lovingly looking at each other for a while.)



Kari-Dialogue-Tag

... Shanaw... We'll have to keep this a secret... Promise?


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

... Why?


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

Mom... the others... they wouldn't understand... We have to take it slow... Okay?


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Shanaw will do anything for Kari!


(And they kissed again, laying on the shore of the river, the stream of water gently caressing their almost naked bodies.)




  • You're my best friend.


Kari-Dialogue-Tag

You're my best friend for life, Shanaw. There, I said it. Happy now?



Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Friends... yes...



(An awkward silence replaced their laughter... They relaxed for a while, and went back to camp. Shanaw was quieter than usual.)




Shanaw & Moira[ | ]

Medicine Woman.


This event does not appear to have a trigger and occurs randomly


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Is Moira... Medicine woman of tribe?


Moira-Dialogue-Tag

Oh, yes, I'm a living remedy to everyone's ailments and problems, indeed! People come to me, I send them back with my foot in their ass. Works most of the time!


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Ha! Moira Iikes jokes. Shanaw Iikes jokes! But what Shanaw mean is... Moira talks to spirits, yes?


Moira-Dialogue-Tag

Oh, I talk a lot, but they never listen. We wouldn't be stranded in this shit hole if they did, would we? I know a few things about spirits and gods, yes. But I don't do miracles.


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

What about devils? Moira talks to them too?


  • I only know humans.


Moira-Dialogue-Tag
I'm not sure what you mean by "devils", but I guess our neighbours could fit that description. I kind of wish Björn's cutthroats were devils, because that would excuse them. Men are wicked enough to not add devils in the mix, don't you think.


Sha-Dialogue-Tag
... Men ARE devils!


Moira-Dialogue-Tag
Well said, girl. But WE are supposed to be temptresses, never forget that. It's what most of these idiots believe anyway, so we'd better use it to our advantage, right?


  • I'm better at listening.


Moira-Dialogue-Tag

As I said, most of the time, spirits don't give a crap about what I want, so I try to let them do the talking. And what I hear most often makes no sense, so... Even if I'm told I’m a witch, I know no devil. But you seem to know one, Shanaw. Who is Aich-mud-yim?


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Don't say name! Aich-mud-yim is Black Man. Hunter of hunters! Aich-mud-yim followed Shanaw here. Shanaw can feel it. Shanaw didn't use red powder for protection, and Shanaw can't find any on cursed island... So it's only matter of time before Aich-mud-yim catches Shanaw...


Moira-Dialogue-Tag

Let him come, girl. If he's a man, a good kick in the balls will make him think twice, trust me.


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

...



Talk to the Dead.


This event only occurs after the previous event "Medicine Woman".


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Medicine-woman knows how talk to dead? Yes?


Moira-Dialogue-Tag

I wish I could. I'd tell all of my ancestors to go fuck themselves. Preferably with a rusty spear.


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Insult ancestors? Why would Moira do that?


Moira-Dialogue-Tag

Because most of them were worthless savages and hopeless idiots, that is why. I'm in this mess because an awful lot of people before me thought having sex was a good idea. Should I honor them for that? Or for the countless ways they killed each other for any reason?


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

...But if Moira could talk to Ancesters... Moira ask them why Ancesters did bad things, right?


Moira-Dialogue-Tag

So they'd come with pathetic excuses, if any excuses at all? I wouldn't even bother. Why are you asking me this, girl?



  • Is there some dead you want to talk to?


Moira-Dialogue-Tag

Do you have someone particular in mind? Your grandmother? Your pet rabbit, maybe?


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Silly, Medicine-woman!



Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Do not make fun of dead, or dead will play with us.


Moira-Dialogue-Tag

As I said, maybe they already are... They sure did, at some point.


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

The Black Man will come and take us to the bottom of the sea!


Moira-Dialogue-Tag

Fear not, child. The Red Woman and her rusty spear will wait for him resolutely...




  • Do you have any link with spirits?
Moira-Dialogue-Tag

Were you called a witch, in your tribe?

Sha-Dialogue-Tag

No. Shanaw was called "Crazy Moon".

Moira-Dialogue-Tag

And why is that?

Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Because... Shanaw... like to dance naked under the full moon. And scream. Like Wolf.

Moira-Dialogue-Tag

Ha! Sounds like regular witchcraft to me!

Moira-Dialogue-Tag

I tried a couple of times, ages ago.

Sha-Dialogue-Tag
Really? To call spirits? can you teach Shanaw, Medicine-woman?
Moira-Dialogue-Tag
Oh, it wasn't for spirits, but for a stupid boy who hadn't a clue.



Red Ochre.


This event only occurs after the previous event "Talk to the Dead".


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Medicine-woman, you have some red ochre Shanaw could use?


Moira-Dialogue-Tag

Do I look like a painter? Besides, why would you need this? Red isn't really suitable for hunting.


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

For protection! Ward off evil spirits. Keep Black Man away!


Moira-Dialogue-Tag

Is that a figure of speech for feeling depressed? Nobody saw any Black Man since we arrived. And nobody is painted in red. So I don't think you need any... What you need is probably a hug.


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

...


Moira-Dialogue-Tag

Don't look at me like that. I am not a provider of hugs.



  • I didn't see any spirit. None.


Moira-Dialogue-Tag

You fled from your tribe, kid. That's fine with me, we fled too. Do you think they've sent an army of spirits or whatever after you?


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

No need. Spirits are everywhere!


Moira-Dialogue-Tag

I assure you, I don't see any spirit in the camp, evil or not.


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

But spirits live in sea and in sky! Spirits are in animals, stones, trees, everything!


Moira-Dialogue-Tag

Oh! Do you mean they watch me when i have a bath? Naughty spirits!


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Stop making fun of Shanaw.


Moira-Dialogue-Tag

I'm only trying to help you understand there is nothing to fear, child. Apart from Björn and his merry men.





  • This place is under my protection.


Moira-Dialogue-Tag

Fear not, my child. I have my bag of bones, and the runes have spoken. No spirit is allowed to follow you here, not while I'm around. I have crafted a set of protection spells that keeps them away. Any spirit you see won’t be real, only a figment of your imagination. Try not to think about them, and they will stay undisturbed in the dream world. The more you think about them, the more powerful they become, so don't give them any chance.


Sha-Dialogue-Tag

Uh... Right, Medicine-woman. Shanaw will do as you say. Thank you!



Moira-Dialogue-Tag

You're welcome, child. (That was easier than I thought...)
