A. We are four and we've been dealt a blow we consider as serious as losing a limb, our Dad is yelling about how we are defiled and is now beating our Sister/Mother figure to death, we were 2 seconds away from being crushed to death, and now someone else is yelling at us. Staying in character!

B is making the most sense to me. Uncle Jorah has obviously done something to calm Dad and now Dad is fairly calm in comparison to a few moments ago and is showing a form of genuine concern for us even if we don't fully understand why.

We're obviously gonna still be upset from what happened but Dad is paying attention to us now and wants us to do something and we've probably heard him going on and on about this Asherah fish guy quite a lot given his position in the village and he's worried we've upset them so best to ask for some forgiveness and do what Dad says.

Mom is mentioned all over the parenting moments in the first update except for that one time we get left with Jathila alone and bad things happen. She also made us a bitchin' necklace and was there for us when we woke up from being half drowned/fish baptized.

Dad questions: Why don't I have any siblings? Is okay by me.

Self questions:
When the men leave the village when they come back do they bring anything back with them? Are there any larger secluded caves around that stay above the tide? Do adults actively avoid us when we aren't doing work for them like the children avoid us?

<Diog> Are you sure you dont want to hold the gate? Or throw yourself on their spears, incase they are magical spears that grant supernatural powers if you voluntarily jump on them?

We've seen the great power these foreigners hold over the hellbeasts of the great beyond, surely they will reward us for our speedy surrender H

Let's let Dad do his job. If he happens to get a spear in the neck well that tells us a lot about the level of protection Asherah will be granting us in the future. If he thinks it's a good idea he will call for Jathila.

Having potentially taught Jathila our language Dad probably speaks more of her language than anyone in the village. Also parading our slave around in front of a bunch of heavily armed like-raced people is probably a fast track to getting our village slaughtered. Hey maybe everyone else is killed and Jathila pleads for our and Jorah's life and then we start the Baitel chapter!

How do we know what languages Dad speaks? As the leader of this village it makes sense for Dad to make a judgement call, if he wants Jalitha to translate and potentially have her come out and tell these people to kill every one of us he can do that. Undermining his position is just a bad move.

We've also spent the last year doing what Dad tells us and generally being less of a gently caress-up in his eyes so it also makes sense that we'd look to him first.

From Jalitha you learned scraps of her tongue and limited bits of knowledge of lands far to the north of you and of their beliefs.

We aren't anywhere near fluent and probably lost some of that as we spent the last year pretty much with Dad exclusively or we were out doing things for him.

We must be pretty loving weird to these people.

<Diog> Its just your dad.

Our problem with trotting Jalitha out is that she was beaten that one time yeah, and it was hard enough that it's done permanent damage to her legs. But she's also been beaten on a semi-regular basis as well whenever Dad has caught her praying to her God. So she may likely just go "Hey I've been a slave for 11+ years could you kill these savages" Or maybe she's got stockholm syndrome and will establish a fantastic trade deal for us with the pot of pearls we've given her over the years. Who knows.

Maybe she's been praying to El to send Smattas and Marnal, better hope there's no lightning in the next update!

Smattas the spear!

quote:

Smattas always arrives to defeat horrible monsters and save little children when all hope is lost and he always, always, always wins, even when it seems impossible.

Marnal the other guy! Who can flex people back to life?

Lighting are blessings sent by Marnal as Smattas fights, to help sick and hurt people who were hurt by monsters, he is so strong he can even bring dead people back to life!
