An early [and somewhat inaccurate] timeline of the United Caveman Federation!
The Elric incident and the death of Bob Dobbs will be covered in later posts.
6/11 – Prince Elric arrives at the United Caveman Federation to conduct negotiations for a pact of non-aggression between their domains and establish trade.
Details: Elric arrives at Caves of Bog [Cave 2] to conduct business in person with Ringo.
6/14 – Negotiations conclude, and the cavemen will trade ivory for iron and women.
Details: 7 tons of mammoth ivory traded for 100 footman’s maces, 600 daggers, 1200 spears, 1200 hand axes, and 96 Trollops [used].
6/29 – Bob Dobbs is apprehended near the Caves of Fug [Cave 6]. Unsuccessful at convincing the cavemen to abandon their god in favor of Slack, the Chief puts for a divine challenge, the god Slack vs. the god who provided Fug with cavebears. The cavebears tear Bob apart.
Bob leaves behind 1,291 gp, a battle axe, set of plate mail, and a dagger. Also a 10 ft pole, backpack, 50 feet of rope and some yucky city food rations. + a Cleric spell scroll with Insect Plague, Animate Object, Blade Barrier, Conjure Animals, Speak with Monsters, and Stone Tell.
7/1 – Caravan arrives from Elric near caves 1 & 2.
7/2 – Cavemen conduct the goods back to cave 2 for later distribution, while Elric’s on his way with the ivory.
7/5 – Fluid the Druid arrives at Fug. Fluid is made welcome and taken to Chief Fudd despite a failed attempt to charm the patrol’s leader. [F3 Caveman rolls 20 on his saving throw vs. spell]. Fluid inquires about the doings of the Mushroom Men, but the cavemen have no news. Chief Fudd invites Fluid to spend a week with his men hunting, using his tricks to catch big game and replenish the stores of Fug in exchange for the Cleric Scroll. Fluid agrees.
7/6-7/12 – Fluid and Fudd hunt big game, at least one large animal per day.
7/13 – Fudd gives Fluid the Cleric Scroll
