    What do you guys think about a plot line, in wich someone is trying to steel holy, and obtain the knowledge of the elders.

  • Ricardo Miguens

    So I think it would be fun that, the animal that attacks hank, would in a future be the same who would save the 2, while they were in danger , or being atacked. That would make them have a strong connection with it, and he could become a even more important part of the story .

    Why Gil (do I spell her correctly?) wants to keep the book? why being so selfish?

    See what science says about children’s brains:

    “The fact that there are more connections [in a child’s brain] allows things to be moved around,”. “After adolescence, that alternate route is no longer available. You lose the ability to recover from a brain injury, or the ability to learn a language without an accent. But you gain adult cognitive powers.”

    Synaptic pruning is just one of many changes thought to be going on inside teenagers’ brains. For example, a 2005 study found that teenagers can’t multi-task as well as adults because their brains are still learning how to process multiple pieces of information at once they way adults can.

    In addition to changes that affect how they think, teenagers’ brains also undergo developments that affect how they feel. For example, during adolescence people begin to empathize more with others, and take into account how their actions will affect not just themselves, but people around them.

    A 2006 study found that the teenage medial prefrontal cortex, the part of the brain associated with higher-level thinking, empathy, and guilt, is underused compared to adults. But as adolescents mature, they begin to use this region more when making decisions, indicating that they
    increasingly consider others when making choices.

      I actually think that being selfish is a good staring point for her transformation . We could see her lose thar trait during these events, and eventually hank could be the person who she learns how and why to share

    THE UNMODS HISTORY: What was the percentage of the people that followed the illegal (according to @Deema) act of not get mutated? I assume that 1% of the population would be enough for the world as we know it not to collapse. So my guess would be that it was at the scale of one in a hundred thousand. That makes 7000 people across Europe, or 3000 people in USA etc. Not getting mutated is one thing. Willing to find an unmod significant other and achieving to do this -given the lack of information on the problem in the early years- is another. So I would agree with @AhmedQA:disqus ‘s estimate of a tribe(s?) of approximately 50 people, trying to find other unmods.

    But what was the agenda of these people in the early days? to survive, to find other unmods to reproduce, to protect their culture and to maintain the basic technological knowledge (although “technology” would had been a really bad term in their tribe after this disaster). So, a doctor would had tried to educate other unmods to execute basic medical acts, like basic diagnostics; maybe he preserved what he considered basic medical books that could be taught to the next generations. The same would go for an engineer, a baker, a teacher, a tailor, a priest, a soldier or a mason. So, this tribe knows to do basic things, even if they know a “twisted” version of what we are calling today common knowledge.

    As the years pass, they might found other unmods wandering but also bad things happened (natural disasters or plagues) that effectively kept the number of the tribe same. Attacks from other tribes wouldn’t really harm them, due to their intellectual superiority and possession of weapons. So, what are their goals now? I guess after 6+ generations most of them are being now very pessimistic about reconstructing a modern society. Their attempts to cooperate with mods were unsuccessful due to mod’s lack of commitment and sense of responsibility. Some others thing that they should use the mods as slaves (an army of 12 years-olds in adult bodies? – but i guess this is exactly what the cryo-rich guy did with the Jock-Rebels tribe) in order to rebuild. Others just still hope…

    General comment: i feel that you should first explore the background of each tribe before committing yourselves to certain events. The background and motivation of each tribe will give you enough of a foundation to build on the characters and their own agendas. Once again, congrats on your excellent work!

    • Elias Khalil

      Fantastic. The guys and I definitely agree that we need to explore each tribe’s character and background. We’ll try to include that in the upcoming episodes.

    • Storysmiths

      Congratulations @hgnostop:disqus
      This post was one of the most up-voted and was integrated into the recording of the third episode of World 1: https://storysmithspodcast.com/2018/02/12/taleweaver-recommendations-w01-e02/

      Look for the episode on February 18th, 2018 to see what we did with your concept

  • hgnostop

    maybe the reason that so many people were willing to risk a genes mutation for their children was that it makes you don’t get sick, or gives you self-healing, or doubles the life expectancy, or even makes you NOT DIE from a natural cause.

    • Deems211

      I like that idea, maybe gene mutations that prevents you from getting all known diseases.

    • Elias Khalil

      One of my finer moments of alliterative imagery

  • hgnostop

    one more thing: i believe in a world of 12 years olds, women will dominate

    • Ahmed AK

      You’re forgetting that this isn’t a world ruled by children, it’s a world filled by adults who never mentally or emotionally age, so even “mother” “father” figures are reduced to infant mentality. I believe this world doesn’t fill out typical gender roles; women can dominate and men can be passive as there is no patriarchy OR matriarchy, people essentially fill out the role they can do.

      • hgnostop

        I’m just comparing the brain of a male and a female 12 years old: the female matures first, so it has better chances to “rule” or to have a better understanding of the situation.

  • hgnostop

    this is interesting… https://www.quora.com/If-humans-suddenly-disappeared-what-would-happen-to-our-planet/answer/Jack-Zorola?share=5deb155f&srid=R5h2
    i’m still considered with the timescale: is it fair enough to say that the story goes on 200 years after the AI breakdown? (mandatory mutations had become common practice a few years before that)

    • Elias Khalil

      That is an awesome article. We have to integrate “Cats would be the new rulers” into the story!

      • Ahmed AK

        I for one, welcome our feline overlords.

    • Storysmiths

      Whilst we couldn’t take the ‘Cats will rule the world’ as a strict plot line, we did talk about your contribution in the recording of the third episode. Look for it when it drops on February 18th 2018.

  • Rabieh aschkar

    Hi guy’s it was a great episode and maybe the animal that attacked was an eagle . Since it hunts on other prays . And easy to scare off .

    • Ahmed AK

      Having something to scare off is a great idea Rabieh, however birds of pray tend to hunt something small or are scavengers, but perhaps an Emu or Ostrich, they’re big and strong enough to cause harm but can also be easily scared off and are not too vicious.

      • Eugenio Curia

        The only problem with that is big flightless birds don’t hunt large prey.

    • hgnostop

      A lone wolf?

    • hgnostop

      a pack of dogs! what happened to all these millions of pet dogs that didn’t have anyone to feed them? they turned into wild packs! It turns out it could really be a cocker spaniel… 🙂

    • hgnostop

      cause there’s no way for captivated animals to survive for so long in a zoo without human help

      • Ahmed AK

        No humans also means the zoo won’t be maintained or curated and so after a while the animals will find out ways to escape especially of the enclosure gates malfunction and then end up unlocking. Think Jurassic Park.
