My Tribe

FunnyManIf you were going to be stranded on a desert island, and you had to pick one computer game to take with you, what would it be? I can't speak for you, but I'd take a game where the characters are stranded on a deserted island with one computer game. That game, naturally, would feature characters stranded on a desert island with one computer game, centered on a deserted island with...

mytribe.jpgOw. Okay, maybe that isn't such a good idea. If the recursion makes your mind hurt too, you could get a copy of Grubby Games' (the creator of Professor Fizzwizzle and IncrediBots) latest release instead. In My Tribe, you play as sort of a guardian angel for a tribe of island-dwellers, telling them what to do, dragging them from place to place, and occasionally sprinkling them with a (hopefully) beneficial potion.

As the game starts, you're given a chance to pick an island. For a starting player, it doesn't really matter which you pick; they all have plenty of trees and rocks for you to harvest, and the oceans will provide more than enough fish for your small starting tribe. From there, it's pretty much your standard resource management game. You need to harvest food (in the form of fish and later crops) and wood (for the fire) to feed your tribe, wood and stone to build with. You'll also need to build huts for your tribe to live in, and other buildings when you have enough resources to spare.

The tribe of My Tribe continues to work even when your computer is off. If you've played the Virtual Villagers series before, this mechanic will seem very familiar. In fact, the games are similar enough that you may be tempted to skip the tutorial, but there are enough small differences that it might be worth your while to play through it.

One novel mechanic of My Tribe is that it rewards you for being around. Every so often a crate or barrel will appear in the ocean, or Stardust or Moondust will land on the island. Drop an islander onto these gifts to collect them. Crates and barrels contain recipes, items, or even dangerous insects while Stardust and Moondust can be used in various places to provide all sorts of useful effects, from stocking your stockpiles to building your buildings and researching your research.

Each island also comes with three of the game's eight mysterious objects for you to solve. Once you've figured them out, each one gives a powerful benefit to your tribe, and one of the game's 25 trophies. Trophies can also be gathered by other tasks, ranging from the simple (build a building) to the complex (keep an islander alive for 969 years).

Analysis: When a game as successful as Virtual Villagers comes along, there will naturally be a host of similar titles following in its wake. My Tribe rides the wave of the village sim but is careful to tread its own innovative path while keeping the core concept in familiar territory. The number of islands you can inhabit is staggering (numbering in the billions), and the potions system really sets the game apart from Virtual Villager knockoffs. Grubby Games is an experienced studio and covered all the main bases a casual game should touch upon, making the game easy to get into, easy to come back to, and rewarding no matter how long or short you play.

mytribe2.jpgThe biggest strength and weakness of this kind of game is its persistent nature. Part of the reward in playing My Tribe is coming back every so often and seeing how your tribe has progressed while you were away. This also brings two big problems: not being able to play continuously and coming back to find your entire tribe dead. My Tribe has done an admirable job with the first part, though time doesn't seem to work quite the same when the game is open. Unfortunately, the tribe is still prone to sudden die-offs when your back is turned.

Perhaps the biggest problem is the reasons your tribe dies off. It only takes a few islanders to provide the food and wood needed by the entire tribe, so there are basically three things that can go wrong. If you don't stop in and call the stork regularly, your entire tribe may grow too old to have children. If your food gatherers die from old age, the rest of your tribe will lounge around until they starve. And if you forget to mark trees for harvesting (they all start marked "don't harvest me!"), your builders may use up all your firewood, again making everyone starve.

As much fun as it is to look after a tribe of island-dwellers, it hardly seems believable that fifty people would starve themselves because the voice in the sky forgot to tell them which trees were OK for firewood. Even though he didn't forbid them from harvesting trees to start with.

I also find myself underwhelmed by the amount of content in this game. It boasts "billions of islands", but the only important feature is which three of the eight mysteries you get (only 56 possibilities, with repetitions). It also advertises "over 40 powerful potions", yet many of the ones given are purely cosmetic.

Despite its downsides, however, My Tribe is very compelling. I have spent many hours in-game, and in the end, it was well worth the price of admission. If you start playing you will find yourself coming back to it again and again, even if you don't need to yet. You'll set it on Fast overnight and check it nervously in the morning to see if your Lunar Tower has finished. In the end, I had to stop playing not because I'd run out of things to do, but because I had too many other things to do... and had been neglecting them while I played.

Walkthrough Guide

General Tips and Hints

  • Trees have to be marked for harvest. If they are not marked for harvest, your tribe will run out of wood while you have the game closed. If they run out of wood, the fire dies. And if the fire dies, the tribe starves to death because they can't cook any food. Always be sure to have lots of trees marked for harvest when you leave the game!

  • You have to mark rocks for harvest, too, but it's not as crucial as wood. You'll just run out of rock and be unable to finish a building project.

  • You can only use rain water for potions while it's raining. To make it rain, make a potion and use it on the ground (fish+sea water+star dust).

  • Making successful potions doesn't take away from the quantity of star dust, moon dust, and golden relics. However, if a potion blows up, you'll lose that catalyst.

  • If you don't make enough huts for your tribe, the people will sleep standing on their feet.

  • The maximum population is 50. Nothing will increase that number.

  • High levels of physical strength make your people move faster.

  • Only use the youth potion on the elderly with gray hair. Otherwise, it won't work and you've used up a potion. Plus, it will be awhile before that person can have another potion.

  • Look for golden relics on the beach when a storm comes.

Mysteries and Their Solutions

There are a total of eight mysteries. Screenshots of each are inside the spoilers.

Unhealthy Bush

  1. The soil is bad.

  2. Use the fertilizer potion on the bush (Guano+Sea Water+Stardust).

  3. Have a Legendary Farmer examine it.

  4. It becomes the Cornucopia Bush and produces the berries that can be used in potions.

Screenshot:
http://images.jayisgames.com/hs_pam_mytribe_unhealthybush.jpg

Big Red Rock

  1. Drop an adult who has Legendary status in both Science and Construction on it to realize it's iron ore.

  2. Tools are now made of iron, allowing people to work faster on any task using tools.

Screenshot:
http://images.jayisgames.com/hs_pam_mytribe_redrock.jpg

Old Glowing Stump

  1. It's heavy and something is growing under it.

  2. You need a person who is at 100/100 on physical strength to pull the dead stump off. (Stardust will eventually produce physical strength, along with every other increase in skill or you can use the physical strength potion of Rocks+Rain Water+Golden Relics.)

  3. Now it needs special magical rain (use potion Fish + Sea Water + Stardust). Be sure to have your strong person tend the plant while it's raining.

  4. It grows into the Ever Tree and produces ironwood, which is much stronger than regular wood.

Screenshot:
http://images.jayisgames.com/hs_pam_mytribe_glowingstump.jpg

Rock With a Fossil In It

  1. Put a Legendary Rock Gatherer on it to crack it open further.

  2. Have a Legendary Scientist examine it.

  3. Your tribe gains 50,000 science points.

Screenshot:
http://images.jayisgames.com/hs_pam_mytribe_fossilrock.jpg

Stone with Star Carved Into It

  1. Drop a person (on which you have used Star Dust) on it.

  2. Put three Star Dusts on it quickly to solve the mystery.

  3. Star Dusts will now drop more frequently on the island.

Screenshot:
http://images.jayisgames.com/hs_pam_mytribe_starstatue.jpg

Stone with Moon Carved Into It

  1. Drop a person (on which you have used Moon Dust) on it.

  2. Put three Moon Dusts on it quickly to solve the mystery.

  3. Moon Dusts will now drop more frequently on the island.

Screenshot:
http://images.jayisgames.com/hs_pam_mytribe_moonstatue.jpg

Flower Tree

  1. Complete the flower pattern by planting flowers.

  2. You'll get a new color of flower to plant.

Screenshot:
http://images.jayisgames.com/hs_pam_mytribe_flowertree.jpg

Flower Tree Completed:
http://images.jayisgames.com/hs_pam_mytribe_flowertreecompleted.jpg

Fountain

  1. Drop a Legendary Scientist on the fountain to collect some water for the Science Lab, unlocking the fountain water potion ingredient.

  2. Use the "restore youth" potion (mushrooms, fountain, golden relic) on an elderly person to solve the wonder. Elderly is when their hair goes gray, around age 65.

Contents of Crates and Barrels

  • Science potion recipes.

  • Items to increase various skills.

  • Beetles that destroy some trees.

  • Contaminated water that makes person lightheaded.

  • Flies that swarm out and devour some food.

  • Extra food.

  • Scary stuff that turns hair gray.

  • Sometimes even nothing at all.

Tips for When You Move to Another Island

  • You keep your scientific progress, but must build another Science Lab to use potions again.

  • You keep all of your potion ingredients except food, wood, and stone.

  • Potion ingredients from Mysterious Objects are still available.

  • All living islanders come on the ark, but tombstones are left behind.

  • You again start with no food, wood, or stone. It's a good idea to have a few Stardust to seed the piles with.

  • If you bring a lot of people, you'll likely have them falling asleep on their feet before they get enough huts built.

I hope this game fixes the main problem I had with Virtual Villagers: it got unmanageable once you got a fair deal of people. It was a chore to train them all, but if you didnt, despite having 6 farmers when you came back after half a day everyone would be dead.
i have high hopes, though, so im giving this a buy

PoisonedV - one nice thing about this game is the Stardust. If you "play" the game a lot, you will continually find them dropping all over the place. And they can be used on the tribe to advance their skills. Just click on the stardust icon then on a person to increase one (random) skill.

There are potions, of course, that will improve a specific skill, but in the beginning, before you have all the ingredients and skill level to make all the potions, the stardust is quite handy.

In the VV series, time could be accelerated by changing your computer clock, but in this game that doesn't seem to work. Has anyone found a way to fast-forward the game, other than changing the settings? It's quite tedious waiting for them to build up science points.

To get the berries, you have to solve the spikey bush puzzle (the bush that has a green gem in it) Remember- there are only 3 puzzles on a certian Island, your island may not have this puzzle.

To solve that puzzle- see spoiler

You need to 1st: mix potion: Seawater, Stardust & Guano (Bird Poop) and use it on the bush.
Then, Place a Legendary Agriculturist on the plant.

**A Helpful tip for solving Puzzles- place members of your tribe with all different types of knowledge on puzzles, they will give you clues on how to solve them.

Check out the trophies, theres one for keeping a tribe member alive for nearly a thousand years. In the Virtual Villagers, the longest you could possibly have someone alive is maybe 120 years or 100 years.

You should have spoilered that, but then again, it's kind of obvious with the clues the villagers gave.

I tried it once but didn't actually put down the pattern and I'm not sure whether I messed up the puzzle. I tried removing the flowers later and actually putting in the pattern, but still didn't work. I'm on a new tribe though and I'll try again when I move to an island with this puzzle.

Also, I just found out that they have the same keypad navigation system that Virtual Villagers has, makes it a bit faster to grab those stardust/moondust drops.

Hey Pam, here's a new crate/barrel effect for you:

I just had one which made my 'superhuman' (max in all stats) tribe member's hair turn grey. It had mummified bones in it which scared her so bad, it turned her hair grey.

It's apparently permanent because I tried both methods to change her hair color back. Using the potion gave the puff of colored smoke and the dialog but no change, using the moondust only changed her hairstyle and gave her a tan.

I hope it doesn't end up making her die an early death. And I hope her future kids don't end up with grey hair, which happens sometimes in VV.

After dropping a Legendary Scientist, do you get the message that it's iron ore and can be used for tools? If so, then click on the map button in the lower left corner and check to see if the Red Rock shows up as being solved in your stats on the left side of the screen. If the Red Rock shows up under Mysterious Objects, it's been solved.

On the trophies screen, check to see if you got the "Mystery Miracle-Worker" trophy. That's the one you get for the Red Rock.

does speed things up, it's still not much of a help when you are at about 57,000 tech points and have 350,000 or so to go.

I have max agricultural and technology techs.

For now, I'm working on developing the island with a few people (good ones I might add) doing some research.

I've corrected the walkthrough. Thanks for letting me know it wasn't right. :)

I'm sure this has already been addressed by someone, but I didn't see it. Anyway, the walkthrough is wrong about the effects of stardust and moondust on the science building. The amount of tech points gained by each doubles with each upgrade in science:

Level One:
Stardust--100 points
Moondust--500 points

Level Two:
Stardust--200 points
Moondust--1000 points

Level Three:
Stardust--400 points
Moondust--2000 points

[Ohhh, thank you! I've corrected the walkthrough. -Pam]

Hey, Michelle, for the love of all that's holy, if you figure out how to get a fountain, let me know, too. My people are building the ark (slowly), and I've got tech 3 in all but fashion and no idea how to get a fountain. Maybe it's connected to one of the mysteries?

Here's one more: If you go to another island, a) can you take SOME people or do all go? b) if on new one, can your people have kids again? I've hit 50 and I'll have a gap of 7 or more years in age from youngest kids because my old woman is still alive:) I thought maybe you could build more people on another island?

Hello everyone you all have been such a help for me with this game. I do, however, find the tech points to take so long even with the moon dust and star dust. I have two stages left, which are building 3 and arts 3. Which should I do first as they both are very high. Do I need them both to move onto another island?

To Michelle and Rascalmom:

To get a fountain -

A fountain is one of the Mysterious Objects. You just need to make sure your island of choice has that particular object out of the three that come with the island. Then when you solve it, you have the fountain for your potions.

Rascalmom, for your other questions:

When you go to another island -

Everyone who is living on your island goes to the new one. Tombstones for the dead stay on the island where they died.

50 is the maximum population no matter what island they are on. If 50 people go to the new island, they won't be able to have any more children until someone dies. It won't matter that they have changed islands.

I hope this helps you.

Pam, thanks very much. My people just finished their ark!
Will we still have it after we sail away? In other words, would we be able to return to our original island after a short time on a new one...or do you lose the ship and have to rebuild it before you ever get to sail away again? Just wondering! I hate to set sail and lose everything it took so long to make, you know:)

About moving to a new island -

You lose the ark and all buildings when you move to a new island. You start from scratch just like you did at the beginning, except you may have some stardust and moondust to help, and you retain the technology you've earned. Everything else has to be build all over again.

There are a couple of things to check about the fish -

Make sure you are fishing in a deep part of the ocean where fish are leaping out of the water. You can find them just by searching around the darker blue parts of the water.

Check your food pile. Do you have a food storage hut? How many farms do you have? I had a case where my food pile was maxed out at 600 and it was all vegetables! I demolished my two farms, let the food pile go down as they ate it, and then they would fish because that's all there was to put in the food pile. After a little while, I rebuilt just one farm to hopefully keep it more balanced with fish and vegetables.

OK, a lot of you have been complaining that the 100/100's aren't producing the 'right' children... but I have to ask, who are you using for 100/100 parents? Because if you use ANYONE related to each other, it's not gonna come out perfect.
What I always do is take a grunt (my word for the non 100/100's) and build them up to 100/100. When I do that I usually get twins (w/ potion, always) that are 100/100 & 99/100. It is perfectly fine by me for it to be like this and it should be for you, too. I usually have them completely filled up in everything by the time they're both 10, so it shouldn't be a problem if you're already doing that.

PoisonedV gave an screen of his island stats to see if you could give codes to friends and have the same island. The game read under stats, 3032 REAL MINUTES PLAYED.239 ISOLA YEARS PASSED. I calculated this,

It is not true most of what is written here. I have tried using 100 physical and mental tribe members to produce 100 percent people and it was quite the opposite.

2) When I sail to a new island, potion contents like fountain water aren't coming with me.
3) If I build and then immediately demolish a celestial or lunar tower, I don't get the shower of stars/moons. Nothing happens at all.
4) When I make a potion, my element is used up, but not the catalyst.
5) Does anyone have a complete potions list?

ironwood/sea water/moondust
lodestone/fountain water/gold relic
lodestone/fountain water/moondust
lodestone/fountain water/stardust

6) Is there any benefit to gaining science points after you've reached level 3 on each area? My island is full of storage buildings, both towers, a farm, observatory, science lab, shipyard, boat, and plenty of huts. I'm just waiting on my people to age. They're all just standing around with nothing to do.

Hi!
I really need help!I cannot find a previous island that I played on but unfortunately I can't remember the name or code. I remember 2 of the mysteries, the tree stump and the mound with the star hole in it. I also remember that 2 of the people's names (that I started off with each time I played on that island- I have played on it a few times)were Gabriel (guy with brown hair) and a woman with either the name Leslie or Lindsay. xD. I think there might have been a Michael with brown hair too.....
I also think that the code number for the island started with 207.
I don't really know how anyone can help but I am going to keep on trying and would be really grateful if at least another person tried too :)

Okay. First, I want to say this is such a cool game. I am addicted now. It has, considering I've known it for about 4 years.

Second, I'm stuck. I left my people alone for about 5 hours and put the game on fast mode. I put them all to earning science points. When I came back, I had the amount of points I wanted so I got the last level of building. Also, 20 people had died.

I put out and demolished the ship deck thing and now I have the ship. I needed moondust so I was going to build the Lunar towers [A ton cuz i know it takes about 6 moondust to get 10 percent completed] to build it because I could only get one person to build at a time. So frustrating!!

So I started to build the towers. I used the spoiler to help but it didn't do anything!! So then I built one percent and demolished it. But I couldn't do it because I had my piles full and I couldnn't return resources. So I had to use stardust. And it worked to demolish. But i still didn't get any moondust! I was going to demolish more buildings so I could demolish more towers at a time so I went around and made some space. The iles were still full so I couldn't do anything so I have half demolished building.

They were all working on science. The highest skill of everyone was science. I had put them all to building but they still did science. Even when I demolished the science building [so tey didn't do it], they earned it instead of demolishing it!! I don't know how that's possible but it happened.

So now I'm afriad for them. I can't demolish or build anything and I put it on pause. I really need some help!! Thanks!!

[and if you don't mind could you click on my name and check it out? i would love it!!

a complete walkthrough for some mysteries.

star rock: put stardust on an adult, then drop the same adult on the star stone.it "appears to be waiting for something". collect 3 or 4 stardust and QUICKLY drop each onto the star stone. it is now known as the "celestial star stone" and makes more stardust fall.

moon rock: its the EXACT same thing as the star rock but with moon dust.

fountain: continually drop scientists it and it will say stuff about mushrooms and gold. this is an important clue. when you have level 3 technology make a potion of mushroom golden relic and fountain and use on a gray haired person and they will be young again.

i will make another when i solve more mysteries.

I just got to the point where I solved the stump mystery and as soon as the tree grew, I noticed that all of my people had stopped moving. They're all happy, none of them are sleeping. I can place them on an object to do work and they will do it once and then stop. Even the babies and kids are just standing still. But, if I put them on mushrooms, they pick it up. Things were fine one minute, bad the next. Oh, and I checked out the time speed too. It's not paused. Little help here.

I really like your site it helps a lot with the games I play with my children. I am looking for advise and would love a reply emailed to me if possibe (I have left my email). My tribe is pretty fun my youngest and I have been playing it for quite a while but recenty we have begun experiencing problems and we can not find the solutions on our own.
First, we made a second player account and then after 2-3 days we turned it on and there was no longer a name for the first player just 'Welcome,!' and every time I try to switch player we get an error mesage and the game turns off.
Second, my youngest hit the clear trophies button and now we can not get the trophies for any mysteries we are just told it's already solved and no trophy or anything.
We have tried reinstalling and that hasen't worked. (She really likes seeing the trophies and knowing we achieved something).
If you have any advise or know of a site for technical issues I would greatly appreciate your help.
Thank you :)

If you build the Celestial tower or the lunar tower and immedeiatly demolish it, you'll get a rain of stars/moons, like you get when the building is completed. You can do this as many times as you like to get an enormous amount of stars/moons.

I got a cheat...

...for the great ark.It is very easy, and saves a TON of time. First you place the ship yard. Then you have to be fast. Quickly destroy it. Then as fast as you can, go to build. It should say to build a great ark. It has worked both of the times I have tried it.

Hope you like the cheat!!!( I found it after I placed it and destroyed it, and you should get the rest.If not then read the next spoiler)

I then decided to rebuild it, due to I decided to rebuild it.

I have solved the cornucopia bush mystery but it is not producing berries. I have tried the fertilizer potion again and it doesn't work. I have also put a tribe member that is maxed on everything and still nothing happens. Any ideas?

If you are feeling lazy, i will post all the cheats: mysteries
Berry Bush

First add poop (Guano), sea water, and stardust to it.Then you add a legendary farmer, and you get the berry bush!!!

Red rock

First, it's iron ore (i knew it from the start, without messing with it, just looked) Drop a legendary scientist on it, and you will discover it!!!

Old stump

place a 100 physical strength on it, then make it rain (the link is at the guide sheet if you want to see ALL portions, top of the page at guilds, not up here) You will find iron wood (make sure the strong person stays!!!

Fossil

Place a max scientist on it, and you make 50,000 since points!!!

moon and star carved rocks

place an xp (experienced person who has been used with that type of carving) It will say "______(their name) touched it and activated some type of mechanism. It seems to be waiting on something" place three moon or stardust (depending on the carving, star, stardust...) Place it fast, and you get it)

ok, this is the flower tree and the fountain

Fountain

put a legend scientist on it, then make the youth potion (read cheat sheet) and you get the water!!!

flower tree

this one didn't come naturally to me.You see the pattern around the tree right? No? You see the missing flowers? You just fill them in :) (make sure you add the right color to the ring's pattern, and place the almost just right!!!)

Hope you enjoy (sorry for the terrible humor and bad spelling, i am tired)

Dear Rae,
Are you sure that he/she is maxed out, and that you had the fertilizer potion right?

If you are not, here it is: Vegges ( I spell really bad, so I put it that way, and by the way, thanks Jay for fixing the errors last time!!!) sea water, and stardust. Make sure you used it on the plant itself, not the dirt beside it!!!(note:if the area is clear, and away from anything but grass, it turns to fungus)

If you are sure you did all that, did you clear your trophys?

when I do the Lunar tower trick, it doesn't work for me. I don't know why, but it never seems to work. Also, my tribe has mostly all been set to construction to build the boat, but everyone sits around. I really don't know why, but if this were in reality, they would all be fat. They just eat, sleep and stand. They're not tired and I don't know what to do! Any help woul be appreciated! :D

Dear Mockingjay(why on earth did you pick a rude name like that!?),

For the boat, mabe you don't have rock or wood.They are nessary for the boat, like other things.For the tower, try to build it all the way, not just halfway.

I got a cheat, and sorry to all players who posted this. It's like an update. THIS EXTREMELY GOES OUT TO PEOPLE WITH A DEAD TRIBE.

you might have read that if you change your p.c's time, the game will work with it, skipping time.onward, you can also fix this, after you skip time. just pause it, and go back. The players with a dead tribe might want to use this:keep the game on a speed, then change the clock backwards, bringing back the dead.

There's a dystopian fantasy book series that is so popular it's being made into a movie (Yay!)...Hunger Games, Catching Fire and Mockingjay. I'm guessing it has inspired more than a few user names.

fghfghfgh510, I have built the tower more than halfway but it still doesn't seem to be working. and with the boat.. it has an amount of rock and wood and labor it needs, right? so do I need to have that total amount before I build it or while I'm building it can they restock the piles?

I love the Hunger Games.... so yes, my username. :] but how is that a rude name?

thanks guys :]

Very nice game, but also time consuming.
But I am at a point in the game where all my villagers are aged 50+ and wont make any more kids. I just recently moved to a new island and I had 0 in everything (food,wood,rocks) and I had no huts. I decided to leave my little island because it was getting over populated and it was one of those divided islands. Well now I guess I just have to give up because all my people are dying from starvation becuase everybody is to exhasuted to do anything. There goes my hopes of that. :\

Would like to say that I appreciate all the forums and comments from all of you. This is my first game like this and very addictive to say the least.
I am on my first Island and after reading all the comments about having children 100/100 from what Jay said in his beginning comments is very true. I hadn't paid any attention to it until I read his remarks after I was well into the game and got stuck, so I searched out his walk-through.
I started keeping a log of my intial people and their ages. Started having babies, (keeping a geneology) and mostly twins. The first twins were accident, I didn't help lol I had maxed out my oldest matriarch, a female, to figure out the iron monolith. I also maxed out my oldest male in science, thinking he would take care of it for me.
So now I had two people maxed out and started doing the same on the rest of my adults. Just because. I wasn't thinking about children at this point. So when I read the comments about the children being 100/100 or 100/99 etc., I already had 40 children. I noticed that my second and third generation children that were mated (remember I kept a log of whos who)with children of different parents and had not been all maxed out didn't have 100/100 but all the parents that had 100/100 did have babies with 100/100,
So it worked for me and didn't even know to check for it at the initial onset.
Thanks for all the helps. Have fun traveling. My ship is built and I am waiting for my lunar tower to finish and off I go. Can't wait for my next adventure and now with Jay's comments and all your imputs what fun there will be. lol

I have a question:
Ok I have waay too many tribe members for my taste, and I want to try and kill some off. But there are specific ones that I want to keep.

~ Is there any potion or something that will kill a specific tribe member?

If you want extra stardust or moondust, you have to click on celestial/lunar tower(Construction level 3) and demolish it. After that you get a rain of star/moondust.( around 30)
