The Akala tribe is one of the player-controlled tribes in "Another Civilization Forum Game." It is controlled by Immortal_Dragon.
The Alkala tribe's trek to the eastern grasslands resulted in the discovery of the rideable, flightless Nokii birds, as well as a river inhabited by spiked crocodiles called Tafra. A failed attempt to domesticate the Nokii led to the birds becoming hostile, and the Akala have responded by stealing 6 Tafra eggs, intent on raising them as guard animals. Further bad luck surfaced in initial attempts at construction, which resulted in unstable houses and several dead inhabitants, although this mistake was soon rectified.
An attempt to coax the tribe's "shamans" into learning the Tafra's reasons for aggression made it abundantly clear that the Alkala had little in the way of actual magic use. The frustrated tribesmen drove out the false shamans, who, resentful, planned to learn magic and use it against their former peers. The tribesmen themselves began to doubt the existence of magic.
A few days later, the Alkala captured some of the fraudulent shamans, tied them up, and fed them to the Nokii. Afterwards, the Akala took a break from unsuccessful taming attempts by improving their agricultural practices. However, once again, a new taming attempt backfired, this time due to sabotage by Akala who developed a hatred for the Nokii.
in retaliation, the tribe leaders mandated that the saboteurs be sentenced to hard labor, although the tamers were targeted by mistake, instead. A hastily-assembled militia failed to defend the village from the Nokii, allowing the attacking birds to run amock, stealing the Akala food supply. Facing starvation, the Alkala revolutionized their agricultural practices. They used new techniques, like the use of feces to enrich the soil, to cultivate a new crop with medicinal effects.
A polytheistic religion emerged among the Alkala, known as Alkalaiea although it only caught on with cultist extremists. Its pantheon consisted of:
- Satae, the goddess of the earth
- Alwa, the goddess of water
- Namao, the god of Nature
- Saket, the god of Life (As in the person who created animals if I’m wrong please tell me)
- Alk, god of the sun and king of the pantheon
- Ala, goddess of the moon and queen of the pantheon
- Maowa, the goddess of death and magic, who is also the creator of mortals (and, as a result, is godess of the afterlife)
A revised form of the religion centered around the two aspects of a greater being named Alkala:
- Alk, god of the sun, beginnings, and birth
- Ala, goddess of the moon, endings, and death
This revision was much more well-received, even winning over the former cultists.
Scouts discovered a dungeon in a nearby forest. After vanquishing a floor of goblins and ents, they found a chest, but decided not to go any further down due to feeling a looming presence. The chest contained a scroll for an ent-raising spell, as well as a staff that improves nature magic rolls by 1 for 10 uses. The first usage raised a force of ents that were weaker than their natural counterparts, but still bolstered the tribe's forces.
A second raid of the dungeon netted the discovery of a giant tree in the center of one floor. The following items were included in the bounty:
- Fruits and vegetables
- A giant seed (believed to be a gift from Alk himself)
By praying to the seed, the Alkala learned more in the field of nature magic. They learned how to raise treants from nearby trees, as well as how to craft tools from these treants' wood, which is as strong as iron.
