[10:27]  shakti (thyme.lordenwych) skirt swishing as she turns and grins at the Outrider...greetings, Master

[10:28]  shakti (thyme.lordenwych): greetings nura, smiling warly to the girl at the Outriders feet...remembering her from a past visit
[10:28]  PrimalRage (primal.bigbear) yanks hr closer to Me
[10:29]  shakti (thyme.lordenwych) stumbles under the weight of he pack and bota as she is yanked closer to her Jarl, grinning up at HIm as she almost bumps Him...ooops!
[10:30]  Kutai (kutaituchik.kroitschov) remembers he has not introduced himslef to the man "I am Kutai, i am the haruspex which will perform the reading"

[10:33]  Nara Zsun: grins coyly around her Masters cloak
[10:34]  Kutai (kutaituchik.kroitschov): "she was abit afraid f you, thats only good, slaves must be fearfull for men"
[10:34]  PrimalRage (primal.bigbear): ah what was the first letter of the beasts name

[10:39]  Hakimba Oakleaf: we follow you
[10:40]  Hakimba Oakleaf steps little back from the Altar
[10:41]  Kutai (kutaituchik.kroitschov) walks to teh altar and watches Nadi with teh bucket. The animal Primal brought is already dead, we don't need the bucket to ctach the blood
[10:41]  PrimalRage (primal.bigbear): Ah yes
[10:41]  Hakimba Oakleaf nods..
[10:42]  Nara Zsun: yes Harupex....smiles an backs way to the boot of her Master setting the bucket beside her
[10:43]  PrimalRage (primal.bigbear) puts down the animal as genty as a baby
[10:43]  shakti (thyme.lordenwych) stands quietly beside her Jarl waiting excitiedly for the reading to begin, wiggling her toes a she notices a column of tiny insects marching through the grass at he feet
[10:43]  Nara Zsun: smiles seeing the familiar Mistress .....happy to see her rocks back on her heels
[10:44]  Nara Zsun: nods acknowledging the kajira at the Mistress's hems
[10:44]  Hakimba Oakleaf: greetings lady delilah
[10:44]  Kamini (catalina.staheli) peers around Mistress's hems at the others, azure gaze taking it all in as thighs spread wide with the Masters present.
[10:45]  Kutai (kutaituchik.kroitschov) sees how the deer is laid at the altar, and looks at it in appreciation , Its a fine animal, pefect fr the reading of the hunts
[10:45]  shakti (thyme.lordenwych) watches as her Jarl hefts the tabuk carefully on the alter, remembering how bloody the carcas was before
[10:45]  Kamini (catalina.staheli) flinches at the sharp jab and peeks up at her Mistress as she closes those legs, ocean depths almost apologetic as she looks mournfully at the Masters.
[10:45]   Ðɛɭɩɭɑɦ  (eminencegrise) smiles "It's good to be back. I'm glad I made the pilgramage. Igot to see my granddaughter as well."
[10:46]  PrimalRage (primal.bigbear) without a word sna;s My fingers and pints o the ground with 2 fingers apart
[10:47]  Kamini (catalina.staheli) just allows slender fingers to dance across sensitive flesh as she squirms a bit behind Mistress.
[10:47]  shakti (thyme.lordenwych) turns to see the FW, smiles warily...gretings, Mistrss
[10:47]  Kutai (kutaituchik.kroitschov) takes his scared quiva, one he acquiered some weeks ago in Port Kargsh and lays the deer at it's back. He looks at Primal "i will open your gift naimal now"

[10:48]  shakti (thyme.lordenwych) watches
[10:48]  Hakimba Oakleaf: i hope it will not smell such horrible
[10:48]  PrimalRage (primal.bigbear) nods
[10:49]  Nara Zsun: moist sultry lips part in awe watching the Haurpex, deep lavender eyes wide still amazed at the ceremony and wisdom of the Haruspex
[10:49]  shakti (thyme.lordenwych) watches with facination as she drops lightly to her knees beside her Jarl, eyes locked upon the Haruspex as she slips the bota and pack from her back
[10:49]  Kutai (kutaituchik.kroitschov) lloks disturbed at Hakimba "it will not smell like the corpses of the Turians we slew at the battle field and which rottened days in the sun"
[10:49]  Kamini (catalina.staheli) blinks, eyes opening wide.
[10:50]  Kutai (kutaituchik.kroitschov) cuts open the belly of the deer and and glides with his hands in
[10:50]  Hakimba Oakleaf smiles... yes you may be right... that was un surpassable
[10:50]  Kutai (kutaituchik.kroitschov): except the farting of a flatulant tharlarion, thats the way Initiates read omens
[10:51]  Kutai (kutaituchik.kroitschov) searches for the liver, a nasty job, but less nasty the sticking ones nose half in the arse of a tharlarion
[10:51]   Ðɛɭɩɭɑɦ  (eminencegrise) sucks her lips in, to keep from snickering.
[10:51]  shakti (thyme.lordenwych) green eyes watch with morbid interest cringing as she watches he Haruspex slice easily hrough the animals stomach.....bites her lip to hold back a giggle at the flatulant tharlarion comment
[10:51]  Nara Zsun: lowers her head trying not to snicker to loudly, her fingers quickly to her lips hearing the Haruspex words
[10:52]  Hakimba Oakleaf pinches nadis earlobe
[10:52]  Nara Zsun: yipes jumps being caught by her Master....slides under his cloak hiding.
[10:53]  Kutai (kutaituchik.kroitschov) finds the liver and takes it out carefully, its a clean liver one can see that this animal has lived in the wild, much unlike the verr he usually sees at the altar
[10:54]  Kutai (kutaituchik.kroitschov) holds the liver to the Sky, then lays it at the monolith
[10:55]  Nara Zsun: gulps sucking in air....trying to hold her breath. The pungent aroma of blood an entrails carried on the breeze assaults her flared nostrils....
[10:55]   Ðɛɭɩɭɑɦ  (eminencegrise) wrinkes her nose...keeps hushed...to not disturb the Harudspex.
[10:56]  shakti (thyme.lordenwych) eyes glued on the glistening liver in the hands of the haruspex, watching as he holds it up to the sky, hearing th wet plop as he lays it on the stone....wonders if you can make pate out of tabuk liver
[10:56]  Kutai (kutaituchik.kroitschov) studies the bloodred liver and sees mny small black spots, and one big one
[10:57]  Kutai (kutaituchik.kroitschov) goes in a trance to the Open Sky
[10:57]  Nara Zsun: holding tightly on her Master's thigh....rises slightly to peer from his cloak trying to see what the Haruspex has found.
[10:58]   Ðɛɭɩɭɑɦ  (eminencegrise) signals with her left hand for her girl to come closer.
[10:58]  shakti (thyme.lordenwych) fidgets, reaching back to scratch her toe swearing something just bit her, eyes intent on the Haruspex waiting with held breath to hear what he sees
[10:58]  PrimalRage (primal.bigbear) looks Around swondering why are cringing at the sme when they should be givi g respct to the brave beast who gave it';s love so this could be done and food could be ate
[10:59]  PrimalRage (primal.bigbear): love =life
[10:59]  Kamini (catalina.staheli) steps closer and eyes the goings on with a wary gaze, the Torvie having no idea what was going on.
[10:59]  Hakimba Oakleaf nods
[10:59]  Kutai (kutaituchik.kroitschov) sees the meaning in the deers liver. He glances at the beast, which has fallen for the religious purpses of the Tuchuk and the Kataii. Then he starts speaking to the public
[11:00]  Hakimba Oakleaf listens
[11:00]  PrimalRage (primal.bigbear) lisends carfully
[11:00]   Ðɛɭɩɭɑɦ  (eminencegrise) uneasily steps from her left foot to her right, pulling her sleeves down as the wind whips at her.
[11:01]  Kutai (kutaituchik.kroitschov): the many small spots resemble many small animals we will catch, its still spring so the larger ones are in wintersleep partially. We will catch many birds, vulo's tiumits, hare, tabuks
[11:02]  shakti (thyme.lordenwych) follows the Haruspex with her eyes, staring with great intent, jumping slightly as he finally speaks....
[11:03]  Kutai (kutaituchik.kroitschov): the big spot i see, means we will catch at least one major animal, what it will be, i don't know: a tarsks, a larl, tharlarion, the future will show us
[11:04]  Nara Zsun: 's lips curl at the corners....a bright smile crossing her delicate features hearing the Haruspex's good news. Rocks back on her slender ankles, nuzzling next to her Master's strong thigh.
[11:04]  Hakimba Oakleaf: or maybe a sleen
[11:04]  Kutai (kutaituchik.kroitschov): sleen i don't see as a big animal
[11:05]  Kutai (kutaituchik.kroitschov): well, unless its a male prairie sleen
[11:05]   Ðɛɭɩɭɑɦ  (eminencegrise): sea sleen?
[11:05]  Kutai (kutaituchik.kroitschov): that i would not apporach without a lance
[11:05]  Kutai (kutaituchik.kroitschov): we have no sea sleen at the south
[11:05]  Hakimba Oakleaf: ahhh well
[11:06]  Kutai (kutaituchik.kroitschov): besides, those are not very large, i have hunted them when i was up north
[11:06]   Ðɛɭɩɭɑɦ  (eminencegrise): I have heard stories of them..from the girl. Perhaps she exagerated.
[11:07]  Kamini (catalina.staheli) blinks and looks up.
[11:07]  Kutai (kutaituchik.kroitschov): well there are big animals in the North at Torvaldsland
[11:07]  Kutai (kutaituchik.kroitschov): I remember friends at Skjern catched a Hunjer Whale
[11:07]  Hakimba Oakleaf: formerly we hunted some sleen here... one or two of hem were rather big
[11:08]   Ðɛɭɩɭɑɦ  (eminencegrise): Maybe that was it.
[11:08]  Kutai (kutaituchik.kroitschov): don't sepak of them"he rubs his leg where a sleen got him
[11:08]  shakti (thyme.lordenwych) smiles glad to hear the good tidings of plenty of food through spring and summer, scooting a little closer to her Jarl, her hand finding the hem of his kilt, looking proudly upon the alter at the gift of tabuk He brought to camp

-------------------------------- The Honey Badger ------------------------------

  

 -------------------------- The hunter ------------------

 [02:14]  Kutai: tal hunter, I am glad you came
[02:15]  Fenrir: i heard you had a badger to kill, what kind of animal is that, we don't have such in Torvaldsland
[02:17]  Kutai: An omnivor, its ferocious, i think it's an animal from Earth, not unlike a prairie sleen
[02:18]  Fenrir studies the hole of the badger and let his eyes speed around "this will be difficult, the hole has at least 4 entrances, you need to close those first"
[02:18]  Kutai: 4 entrances?
[02:20]  Fenrir: yes, you need to use thralls to close them. Place spears, or close them with heavy rock, After that you must dig out the main entrance and uses lances to keep the badger imprisoned"
[02:21]  Kutai feels his chin "first we need thralls then" he thinks " or free men who are not lazy"
[02:22]  Fenrir: "free men will do of course too, but then you must give them a part of your share in the hunt"
[02:22]  Kutai nods " I will see, i don't really need my share, so if that makes things easier, so be it"
[02:23]  Fenrir looks in the hole and sees some pairs of snapping teeth "the animal seems to havea good fur, and since its exotic, we might get a very good price for it"
[02:25]  Fenrir breakes some sticks from the brushes and adds textile to them. After that he places the sticks at the entrances he has found
[02:25]  Kutai watches the hunter "I will make work of closing them"
[02:26]  Fenrir: don't close all, otherwise we have to dig even more, or the beast escapes for making a new entrance of which we have no knowledge
[02:26]  Kutai: i will see to that
[02:27]  Fenrir Flow whistles his tarn and leaves "i will return later"

--------------------------- Slaves at work --------------------

[07:43]  Kutai (kutaituchik.kroitschov): follow me slave
[07:45]  Kutai (kutaituchik.kroitschov) points at the badger hole
[07:45]  Kutai (kutaituchik.kroitschov): I payed a hunter to help me catch the badger
[07:47]  Qion Hifeng: he seems to have left him in his den
[07:48]  Kutai (kutaituchik.kroitschov): He searched the entrances of the animals living castle
[07:48]  Kutai (kutaituchik.kroitschov) chuckles at his slave remark " yes , he left, leaving instructions behind for us"
[07:50]  Qion Hifeng: I have heard that it is dangerous to disturb a badger in his den..it's a good thing you are a fierce and powerful warrior, Master
[07:52]  Kutai (kutaituchik.kroitschov): "yes, I heard that too. Thats why i hired a professional hunter. And he advised not to do alone"
[07:53]  Qion Hifeng looks at you sideways...wondering if you consider haviing me here not doing it alone...
[07:54]  Kutai (kutaituchik.kroitschov): The hunter found the entrances of the badgers lair. He advised me to block all entances except one
[07:55]  Qion Hifeng nods..following you so far
[07:56]  Kutai (kutaituchik.kroitschov): The hunter had no lust to block the entrances him self, he said that was carrying heavy stonees, logs and shoveling sand, no work for a free, but for a thrall
[08:09]  Qion Hifeng: Hello, dana!

[08:21]  destinydare: pleasure rack?
[08:22]  Kutai (kutaituchik.kroitschov): I show you later, first work to do
[08:22]  destinydare: yes Master
[08:23]  Kutai (kutaituchik.kroitschov) walks to a part of the den were a twig is placed with small stripe of repcloth on it. He looks in the hole and pokes with his scimitar but nothing happens
[08:25]  John Doe (emerald.verlaine) is Online
[08:25]  destinydare: I heard a noise inside Master
[08:25]  destinydare: the hole growled
[08:28]  Kutai (kutaituchik.kroitschov): well, we better shut this part before it attacks us. He looks around and sees a middle big rock
[08:29]  destinydare: yes Master
[08:29]  destinydare: those things have sharp teeth
[08:30]  Qion Hifeng walks over to the rock and tugs at it...until she...grunting with effort...pulls it up on it's side...
[08:31]  Qion Hifeng then rolls it slowly over to the hole...struggling to keep it up...moving slow step by slow step..trying not to roll the rock back onto her toes...or break her nails...
[08:31]  Qion Hifeng rolls it to the right of the hole then pulls the rock to the right and stands back and lets it drop down onto the hole...
[08:31]  Kutai (kutaituchik.kroitschov) helps his slave a hand, so she does not loose balance
[08:32]  Kutai (kutaituchik.kroitschov): Good work Ushi, now you and Dana fill the rest of the gap with sand and gravel

[08:34]  Qion Hifeng: Yes, Master..good thing this isn't the plains...
[08:35]  Kutai (kutaituchik.kroitschov): isn't the plains?
[08:35]  destinydare: Why ,ushi?
[08:35]  destinydare: thought we were in the plains
[08:35]  destinydare: higher up
[08:36]  Qion Hifeng goes to the nearest rock outface and taking her skirt..she holds it against the rock and sweeps up sand and pebbles onto it...and carries it to the rock...dumping it against the stone
[08:36]  Kutai (kutaituchik.kroitschov): help her Dana

------- Butchering meat ----------- 

2012-09-01-butchering-meat-3.large.jpg

[19:21] Nara Zsun: yes precious sister in bondage grins....please scrap this hide I have to removed from the tabuk. You can help me string it on the rack.
[19:22] Angel Firehawk [AngelMistress Boa] watches the girls doing their work, making sure its done right.
[19:22] Qion Hifeng looks amazed at the vigor at which I'm working...figures it must be the presence of the Mistress encouraging me to do my best
[19:25] Nara Zsun going to the back of her Master's wagon, nadi searches for a empty barrel. Finding one she quickly rolls it back to the kitchen area.
[19:25] Qion Hifeng looks at the slow pace that nadi is working at and looks smug
[19:25] Nara Zsun at the fire pit wraps her hand in a rep cloth, takes the kettle an pours hot water into the barrel. With a tarsk bristle brush scrubs the barrel clean. Dumping the water into the pond. Gathering some dried tall grass...scatters it in the bottom of the barrel. Walking to the rack where she earlier with the help of Kamini a visiting slave, she hung the Tabuk carcass removing the heart for the visiting Jarl who gave the gift of the tabuk for the Omen Reading.
[19:26] Nara Zsun with a knife given to her for her use by the Haruspex, nadi slowly an carefully begins to remove the hide.
[19:27] Nara Zsun smiles at ushi helping her to stretch the hide on the rack. "Does this look right Mistress....having never done this before.
[19:27] Angel Firehawk (angelmistress.boa) nods "yes it is"
[19:29] Qion Hifeng scrapes off the inner layers of the skin...making the hide as thin and flexiable as possible, so it will tan and dry properly...working the sharp stone up and down over the inside of the hide to clean it slowly but surely..layer after layer...
[19:29] Nara Zsun: thank you for directing nadi. I am fearful using this big knife the Haruspex allowed me.....it is so sharp an I hope I am cutting the roasts correctly. Careful Mistress I would hate to get blood on your pretty dress
[19:30] Angel Firehawk (angelmistress.boa) takes a step back and says "Looks like you are doing a fine job Nadi"
[19:32] Nara Zsun: cuts a huge slab of the tabuk meat dropping it into the barrel. "thank you Mistress, I am so glad you were here to assist nadi."
[19:32] Angel Firehawk (angelmistress.boa): I am glad I could help.
[19:34] Nara Zsun: does the hide look well cleaned Mistress, how does ushi do.....I have the barrel of salt to prepare the roasts now if she is ready
[19:34] Angel Firehawk (angelmistress.boa) walks over to the skin and inspects it carefully and says "Aye, it looks done"
[19:34] Qion Hifeng takes a handful of brains boiled in water and fat and rubs it into the hide....smearing it on both sides...
[19:35] Nara Zsun: oh the smell of this hot blood an meat makes this slave swoon...
[19:36] Qion Hifeng works the brains into the hide using the scraper and her hands...making sure she gets every inch of both sides of the hide
[19:37] Nara Zsun: slices several more roasts....setting them on top of the barrel decided to slice them into large steaks. "I think the outriders would surely enjoy some large steaks too smiles. And I will dry some spicy jerky for them to carry in their pouches when they travel
[19:38] Qion Hifeng then spinkles the hide with warm water and unties it from the frame and rolls it up to have the brains start the tanning process over night...
[19:40] Qion Hifeng takes the hide that Nadi just finished cutting off her theTabuk and tosses it in the lake to soak for 3 days and nights before the scraping process can begin...
[19:40] Qion Hifeng: It was a pleasure to see you, Mistress
[19:40] Nara Zsun: watches ushi not sure of the process, is happy for her teaching me how to tan skins. I am sure the outriders will like the skin for shields an we may even sew some new pants or vests for them.
[19:40] Angel Firehawk (angelmistress.boa): *smiles* Was a pleasure to see you too Ushi, stay well nadi.
[19:41] Angel Firehawk (angelmistress.boa): Will go rest in my wagon *smiles
[19:41] Nara Zsun: rest well Mistress....thank you for your help. I would have been lost without you. smiles
[19:41] Qion Hifeng: I hope you have a good night and maybe you will be able to attend the feast tomorrow

[19:43] Qion Hifeng starts to use some of the salt we mine to season the meat for tomorrow's feast....
[19:44] Nara Zsun: watches as ushi rubs the salt into the large pieces of roast. "I had no idea a tabuk had so much meat. It will last us for many meals."
[19:44] Qion Hifeng: I guess that depends on how many people come tomorrow...
[19:45] Qion Hifeng: but it will feed many mouths, you are right, Nadi
[19:46] Nara Zsun: true there may be many hungry outriders to feed.
[19:47] Qion Hifeng: and many visitors left hungry for many things after they see you dance...but they will just have to be satisfied with meat.
[19:50] Qion Hifeng carries the roasts to the cold box so they can marinate in their dry rub til it is time to cook them tomorrow...
[19:50] Nara Zsun: laughs oh ushi your so funny. But yes we always feed our people well. We will have to bake bread early in the morning. I checked our supply of ale, mead, paga and arkhi. They will drink themselves happy. With hot slaves, good food an a successful hunt.
[19:53] Nara Zsun: yes an the rest I have covered in grass in this barrel. My Master has dug a large hole in the ground to bury the barrel. It will keep the meat cool. Until we are ready to cook it or dry it for jerky.

[23:19] Kutai (kutaituchik.kroitschov): is your bow ready Hakimba?
[23:21] Hakimba Oakleaf: yes... i am ready.. the beast may show up.. i think we are just at the right position.. because the wind is blowing against us so the tumits may not smell our presence
[23:22] Kutai (kutaituchik.kroitschov) takes his round kaiila shield and sneaks closer to the brushes "fire 3 arrows in the bush"
[23:23] destinydare: I watch the skills of the mighty warroris and hunters and smile proud to be a member of the tribe
[23:24] Hakimba Oakleaf fires three arrows into the bushes ... immediately there is some movement.."i think the beasts will break out suddenly now"
[23:24] Kutai (kutaituchik.kroitschov): fire another arrow where you saw the movements
[23:25] Hakimba Oakleaf fires ... and now a big tumits runs out of the reed
[23:26] destinydare: I watch the men as my eyes are focused on them and their skills
[23:26] Hakimba Oakleaf aims at it ..and continues firing
[23:26] Kutai (kutaituchik.kroitschov) hears the cry of a hit animal and immediate runs forward, he sees a hit tumit. He smashes the round shield agaist the beak of the animal sot it can not attack him , and quickly twists it's long neck, breaking it, so the bird dies under his hands.

[23:28] Hakimba Oakleaf: then a third one more left from the otheres runs from the river.. i aim my bow and shoot

[23:34] Hakimba Oakleaf: i think each of us will take one of the hunted tumits and we carry them to the camp
[23:35] Kutai (kutaituchik.kroitschov): yes, we can't expect the slave carry all three, that would be to much, and letting them lay to be taken later will make sure we loose the meat sice there are many scavengers here
[23:37] Nara Zsun: tell dana to be careful...one of those birds bit off a slaves leg I used to know
[23:37] Hakimba Oakleaf: yes... me puts one of the bigger birds at his shoulder then grabs the hand of nadi heading back to the camp
