Hunting parties will normally have between two and eight members divided between the players. Each hunter chooses to carry a single tool type; either spears, a club, a bow or fire. Their chosen tool will very much impact on their approach to any given hunt. Any hunter may also be accompanied by a hound. Hounds activate in a similar way to hunters, but failed activation attempts will result in the hound disobeying instructions and (usually) being a nuisance.
Once players have a game or two under their belt, they can roll to randomly give one of more of their hunters a trait. The hunter may in fact be a gatherer, or a stalker - or perhaps they are lame or timid. Occasionally a hunting party may include a healer or a thinker; there are 18 traits in all.
How will you put your hunting party together?
