Growing your clan

Recruit or Recruiting is a process of increasing the size of the clan by helping unknown hominids known as outsiders. Helping these outsiders will befriend them and they will join the clan.

Mechanics[]

Outsiders will only appear when your clan is below the maximum amount of eighteen individuals. You have to have space in your clan for them to appear.

Outsider Types[]

Each outsider has to be helped in a specific way for them to trust you and for them to join the clan. Each outsider will have specific types of body language indicating the type of aliment they are suffering from that they need your help with.

It's important to note that you can't take outsiders to the items that can help them, you have to bring the cures to the outsiders.

There are five types of outsiders than can be recruited.

Hungry Outsider[]

The hungry outsider needs food. Their body language will have them holding their stomach.

Bring them some safe to eat food that you have inspected and hand it over. The outsider will eat and happily join you.

Injured Outsider[]

An injured outsider needs medicine to cure their Injury minor ico.png Injury major ico.png Injury. Their body language will have them holding their arm.

SenseIcon Horsetail.pngHorsetail can be found around most water sources and is an excellent medicine for curing injury.SenseIcon Khat.pngKhat can also be used as it is found in many places. If those items aren't readily available, any of the injury remedies that can be brought to the outside can be used.

The outsider will consume the medicine you bring them and happily join your clan.

Poisoned Outsider[]

A poisoned outsider can be one of two things: either they have Food Poisoning minor ico.png Food Poisoning major ico.png Food Poisoning and Venom Poisoning minor ico.png Venom Poisoning major ico.png Venom Poisoning.

  • A venom poisoned outsider needs medicine to cure their affliction. Their body language will have them smacking or hitting their head.
  • A food poisoned outsider needs medicine to cure their affliction. Their body language will have them doubled over and making vomiting actions.

Thankfully, the SenseIcon Cocos.pngCocos is the perfect medicine for both afflictions. A SenseIcon Coco cracked.pngCracked Coco or SenseIcon Coconut pierced.pngPierced Coconut can cure both food poisoning and venom poisoning at the same time.

If Cocos aren't available, any of the food poisoning remedies or venom poisoning remedies that can be brought to the outsider can be used. Cocos are the best as they can cure both at the same time but if they aren't around there are other good options available.

The outsider will consume the medicine you bring them and happily join your clan.

Scared Outsider[]

A scared outsider needs to be soothed and comforted. Their body language will have them looking over their shoulders for threats that aren't there.

You can get close to them and console them almost with a hug. Press the appropriate button when you are close enough and they will stop being scared and join your clan.

Thirsty Outsider[]

The thirsty outsider needs to quench their thirst. Their body language will have them holding their throat.

As you can't bring water to them, you have to improvise and use items that contain liquids or that are high in liquid content.

One of the easiest items for this is the SenseIcon Cocos.pngCocos. A SenseIcon Coco cracked.pngCracked Coco or SenseIcon Coconut pierced.pngPierced Coconut is perfect for quenching the thirst of an outsider. If you don't readily happen to have Cocos around in the biome you are in, you can also bring fruits that are high in water content like the SenseIcon Mango.pngAfrican Casturi Mango or theSenseIcon AfricanDrupe.pngMiocene African Drupe. Not all foods are high in water content so you may have to see what is available around your hominid. It may take several tries with different foods to find one that quenches the outsiders thirst.

The outsider will consume the item you bring them and happily join you.

Precious Stones[]

Give ico 84.png Giving a MindIcon Powerstone.png Precious Stone to a hominid that isn't part of the clan will automatically befriend them and they will join your clan. You may still have to cure them of the affliction that they are suffering from once they are part of your clan but you don't have to try to recruit them through the normal curing methods.

Notes[]

Finding and recruiting each of the five outsider types will complete the Generous Leader Evolution Feats.

The body language isn't always the most clear about what is afflicting the outsider. You may have to try several remedies for each of the five types of outsider to find the correct remedy.

Sometimes an outsider may have a bug and you can't recruit them. If you have tried all of the remedy options, and nothing is working, move on from that outsider. Others can spawn in different locations

When you complete a Change Generation or Evolution Leap new outsiders can spawn.
