    Let us further our strength, both by wing and spell. Let the wood slaves return to their ways of study, so that we may grow ever stronger. And let us strike north, to new lands and new challenges. We have food aplenty, let us find others to test our metal against.

    I want you all to know you haven't been forgotten! This weekend was a... difficult one, to say the least. And work's got a bunch of deadlines coming up. Will try and get everything together for an update sometime today.
    Sorry again for all the delays

    TRV, what's more important here, really? Your cocks or your kids?

    I think the choice is clear.

    Happenings!
    Your scouts search around with daybreak as usual and report back that they are close to a few resource points, but were not able to get any today. Once again the cocks gathered in the center of town for more military training.

    In the midst of their exercises one cock looked up with an idea. "Why should we only rely on our feet and beaks for attacking? We should be able to make some sort of... of close contact weapon to use with our arms, shouldn't we?" Red Talon and Dark Shrike looked at each other and then back at the cock that made the suggestion. "Go on, cock. Stand up straight and let the words come freely." "Y-yes sir!" he says, stiffening his back. "What I was saying was that we rely on our beaks and feet for attacks. These things are powerful, but using a beak can disorient us, and using our feet puts us off balance. If we had some sort of... claws or something? We could slash our foes down with our arms, allowing us to stay on balance." "This is a good idea. Thank you for the suggestion, cock." He looks around. "This cock has shown initiative. We depend on the adaptability and inventiveness of the whole of our flock to move forward in grow. Does anyone else have suggestions?" A scrawny, timid bird stands slightly above the rest. "I do, sir." The leaders turn their eyes to him and nod for him to continue. "Well, you see, some of us may be stronger than the others. Being up close and personal would work great for them, but some of us cocks are thin, and more fragile. I propose that we attack from afar. If we could design some sort of sling to hurl stones and debris with, I think we could learn to do a fair bit of damage with them in time."

    The people of bonewood send a message to the council of Cockstantinople. In the message they share the knowledge gained from the treeple. They also pass on the instructions on how to make the whips, if the council so chooses to spend their resources in such a way.

    They tell the council that they are working on getting the treeple to help them improve their politics in the hopes that maybe the next civilization they meet can be of some benefit to them all.

    The letter ends with a hastily scrawled "Gotta go, time to fu-" and then trails off as if the author ran out of the room

    Actually LE, there are two islands. The giant skull island, which actually is covered with skulls of some ancient race and is overrun by some evil plant/monster murder force. We ran. And the smaller, penis like island that we will likely cover in cocks.

    EDIT: Since we can fly, do we need a bridge to explore the smaller island?

    Once again the treeple are forced to stare awkwardly at each other as all the citizens of bonewood engage in the mighty art of birdfuck. The cocks in the town feel truly safe tucked away in their stone houses perched atop their living, moving city. The unfortunate treeple below are forced to bear the indignity of having such activities happen in their branches, not to mention the various... fluids that end up getting spilled onto them.

    Hoping that this nearby island is less terrifying than the last, you send your scouts over to it to investigate. It is a densely wooded island. This much you are certainly able to tell from above. The canopy is lush and thick and you are unable to see into it very well. Your scout thrust lands on the shore of the island closest to your previously explored terrain. It is always best to have a path of escape if you need it. You hear a low and rattling roar coming from somewhere in the middle of the forest, followed by the sound of a large creature jumping from tree to tree. The is a scraping sound as well.

    Back in Cockstantinople the council has decided that the best use of resources would be to work on mass producing the vine whips made by the treeple. With the harvest method it only takes a few resources to get enough to arm most all of the soldiers and mages. The technique is still a bit rusty of course. You feel that with a bit more magical or military training you can put more of a cocklike spin on its use as opposed to just using the techniques shown by the treeple. Of course, there is always room for these whips in the bedroom. Special occasions only!
