We have moved out of the caves. It is spring time and we have a number of options for settlement.

The caves - Easy living space and we get free refrigeration. Close to water, but some distance from the trees.
1 (16.7%)
The forest, near the river - Lots of resources and water availability. Not easy to build in and ground is uneven.
1 (16.7%)
The plains - Locate a nice flat, open space, near the woods. Easy to build on and modify, some distance from water.
0 (0%)
The coast - Follow the river down until we find the coast of whatever it connects to. Could have fishing possibilities and other options.
4 (66.7%)

With a few solid hits, the surrounding stone cracks and breaks and the glowing rock falls out. The hunter who had touched it picks it up and carries it back.
At the cave, a low of awe and interest is expressed at the rock, which finds a place at the largest of caverns.

Images of outstretching your hand and concentrating? Should try that then, see if anything unusual happens (probably outside just in case).

The hunter (Whom, due to being unique, shall henceforth be known as Gavin) attempts to stretch his hand out and concentrate on the images. He receives further images, one of a fist and another of an open palm.
Concentrating on either, while his hand is in the same form, yields the following:
Fist - a fireball shoots out for about 10 ft away, burning out as it does.
Open Palm - a spray of fire shoots out in a cone about 3 ft away.
Both melt the snow with ease.
After trying out both, Gavin feels spent and rests. For now, we can't instruct him anymore.

Interesting. Keep an eye out for any similar rocks while about. If this one gave Gavin a talent of creating fire, there might be more that give other talents, or the same.

Once he wakes up, we should also see if he can teach others how to do this.

In the meantime, have everyone touch the rock.

Supplies: Supplies are lasting as intended.
Group Health: Some complications arise with Gavin and whoever sleeps near the rock. They develop a fever.
Current Events: The group passes the time slowly, taking care of those with fever and attempting to keep themselves entertained. Every appears itching to do something outside, despite the cold.

put the rock outside, and see if it creates a warm area.

Several members of the group tried to move the rock, but it was too hot to touch for them.
At that fact, Gavin laboriously did it, placing the rock outside. Within moments of being near snow, a few inches of snow around it had already melted. Further time outside did not increase the radius, though being away from the rock had made those with fever feel better.

Since the rock was moved outside, anyone who had a fever, Gavin included, now do not have a fever.

Bring some of the melted snow inside to see if proximity/drinking causes fever. See if covering the stone can block the effects.

I request a fuller suite of tests beyond just drinking and covering. Try and compose a larger list, please.

Move some stones to make a special shelter for it away from the cave. Build up a pedestal so its not just sitting on the ground, place rocks to shield it from the elements, and put a roof over it. Gavin should be the one to deal with it as much as possible.

The special shelter is prepared and Gavin transports the rock there. Despite being drawn to testing the rock more, the group feels that only Gavin should ever be around it.

Can Gavin replicate the feats he performed when first coming in contact with the rock? Does he need to be close to the rock for that, or not?
