The Act:
Our Tribe is made up of primitive peoples, not far advanced from the Stone Age. They have been driven from their lands by war and are seeking their lost families. They have not been exposed to First World culture before, and are still steeped in the mysticisms and beliefs of the elemental world.

The Story:
They come from a place far away - a land of steep hills, rushing streams and deep, creeper-strewn forests. Sometimes, when the heavy hanging mist clears and they stand on the top of the highest hill, on the top of the highest tree in the territory and strain their eyes, they can just about make out the point where the biggest river meets the sea. Not that they know what the sea is, but they know the stories from the Elders. But now another tribe’s territory stands between them and the ocean. A fierce tribe, strong, powerful and war-like.
Our group must have been out when the attack happened, away for days in the darker parts of the territory. By the time they returned, it was all over - the village overrun with their enemy. They escaped capture by hiding in the soft mud by the riverside. That night, under cover of darkness, they crawled up the shore and away into the mists to find their tribe. If anyone saw them go they would have thought them spirits made real, caked in the mud of the forest.
Since that day they have wandered, seeking what remains of their tribe and wearing the mud that saved them.
The journey has been long and they have visited some strange lands, but none so strange as the one they find themselves in now...
