The Awakening Dream-Time of the Woses

OR

The Dreamquest for Unknown Kadath

OR

The Valar Must Be Crazy

picture

The Druedain (not to be confused with Dunedain!), aka the Woses, aka the Pukelmen.

They are tribal peoples who are close to nature and can be found in forests like Druadan Forest at the border of Gondor and Rohan. Or in the Druwaith Iaur near Andrast in Southern Gondor.

Woses carry bows to hunt wild game for food. The Woses think everyday should be a celebration and celebrations always needs to have a roast pig on a stick over an open fire.

Now this particular tribe of Woses are darker skinned than the ones in Druadan or Druwaith because they are from Harondor which is north of Umbar and south of Lebenin in Gondor.

Not long ago, a pilot threw out his glass Coke bottle from his propeller plane and it landed in a Wose village. While the natives found many beneficial uses with it, they also found that this modern technology also brought on modern woes – like jealousy over its use. Ultimately leading to it being used as a club when one lady didnt want to share it with another. (The Prime Directive was breached!) Their once happy village was now sullied by the thoughtless littering of civilized man's garbage. Much like the One Ring, the Woses found that power corrupts absolutely and have sent a fellowship of their own on a quest to return this mighty artifact to whence it came. Thus begins the saga of "The Valar Must Be Crazy".

I;m confused, I was expecting something related to the Dreanquest of unknown Kadath, i.e with Dholes, Ghouls and Nyalothotep

Oh, I guess I forgot the last part of the post. Fixed. But Ill put it here too… Anyway welcome to my blog's modus operandi… confusion! ;p But yes Nyarlathotep was on the last battle report.

Edit: Totally forgot to circle back to the reference to Lovecraft in the post's title. Prepare to be underwhelmed!
Aboriginal Australians go on Walkabouts aka Vision Quests aka the "Dreaming". I dont know too much about it, but my guess its some kind of spiritual nature/soul quest while living off the land in a migratory fashion? Im thinking a road trip movie but with walking and camping.

Tcho Tcho (Lovecraft's sinister tribal asians) are like Woses but have succumbed to the Mythos dreams (think Burmese Gollum, or try not to!).

Strange Horizons did an article about the connection in Aboriginal Lovecraft here: link

But anyway, in my campaign these Woses are still primarily good natured. If they stay that way… who knows? All we should know is that their ancestral "Dreaming" gods are calling them to take a larger part in the global troubles brewing in Middle Earth. If the Free Peoples are to survive, they need everyone to help out, both the great and the small. Im looking at you Hobbits and Woses to save the day!
