    It's that time of . . . time, again. Lord Quest.

    Previous threads are here: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Lord%20Quest

    Saw this posted in a thread a bit back, cheers to whoever thought fit to put it together.

    Last time on Lord Quest we found out the culprit was Snyv, a young lordling in the land of Ell. Sheff and James have taken things into their own hands and you've been managing the estate back home again.

    Starting with a new month, so brace for NUMBERS. Feel free to make your event roll/your alchemy roll.

    >> Anonymous 06/08/10(Tue)04:56 No.10356560
    That is so helpful, like amazingly so. It'll allow us to shift some peasants away from building in the coming months and focus them on earning gold or training for the military. We can finally build ourselves some economic and military strength people.

    This is an interesting idea. An increase in stone production, perhaps with some of the excess builders producing stone, would allow us to rebuild the stone defences of our keep with ease, low cost and efficiency.

    There will be. Basically, I'll add tool requests as you come up with them. Note that you don't have any real mining operations happening except panning the river for silver. However, tools for that could also be made.

    For new people here's a vague list of important characters QL made way back on thread four.

    You are Thomas (Thom) Green
    - Leold: Your uncle's hunting buddy and friend.
    - Smyatt: Accountant, merchant and general manager of the place. Did most of the day-to-day running under your uncle.
    - Sir Peter Doobs: Hedge Knight, in service of your uncle. Your cousin, of much lower rank. Newly knighted by your uncle on his deathbed, was uncle's squire before that.
    - Erik: Your oldest (bastard) uncle. Was a scholar for most his life, after being exiled from the priesthood for insufficient devotion. Speaks many languages.
    - Zeek: Priest of Exidaid. He is proficient at healing small injuries and can handle larger ones with time.
    - Baldric: A peasant, of below average intelligence (but high for a peasant). A lackey. Possibly has a touch of the mind fever.
    - Marcus: A chef.
    - Shorty: Tallest and smartest of the yeomen. Promoted to DOOBS Squire.
    - Dan Ganawb: Mason (costs 5 silver per month)
    - Byron: An easygoing god who demands little obedience and brings good luck in hunting, battle and general rough endeavors. Thom and Leold's patron deity.
    - Exidaid: A god of healing.
    - Artagus: A goddess of hunting. She has a local (unmanned) temple nearby.
    - Urist: A very friendly dwarfen merchant who often brings the town fine wares.
    - Sir Pinky: A pet white mouse.
    - Lord Sheff: Leader of Seakay, a bordering territory comprised of many towns. Very good relations. He's helped us a bit, and we bought him a fine 30 gold sword. His wife loves cooking, and Sheff loves good food.
    - Daughter of Lord Sheff: Beautiful, but not particularly ladylike. She rejoices in alchemy and other hobbies odd for any nobility, let alone a young lady. However she still has many suitors, mainly the richer Seakay merchants.
    - Thom's Brother: Leant us a large sum of money to commission Sheff's sword.

    Reposting alchemy rules too now.


    These will take a week (-1 from your roll for the month, can stack) or a month for a slow test (+5 on the alchemy roll).

    You can experiment to increase your skill the hard way, or can do any alchemists tasks you learn. At the moment you know experimentation, making corrosive pouches and ash to lye. However you can't make commercial amounts of lye solo, and don't have the stuff to do it largescale.
    A Roll of 1 is a crit success, bonus may vary. A roll of 2 is a great success, doubling the result.

    All of these are a roll to get under your alchemy skill (6) with the worst result always failing, until you're skill is double the skill needed.

    Simple expeirment (d8) (+.1 for pass)
    Hard Experiment (d12) (+.2 for pass)
    Difficult Experiment (d16) (+.4 for pass)
    Peat to Coal (d4)
    Ash to Lye (d6)

    Alchemy cont.

    You can do a dangerous experiment which will give a -1 modifier to any passes, but a +1 modifyer to fails (slow being good). A result of max (nat x when rolling a Dx with +1 mod) will result an a serious faliure, and will likely HURT (d10+3 on crit fail table).
    Any critical faliures otherwise will roll a d5 on the alchemy critical fail chart, wanting low.

    Well, there's no shortage of other teachers. DOOBS and Cohen are both better at you in combat, and Cohen has the advantage of having a totally different fighting style. If you'll want to do more then just train and stay at where you are, you'll need to dedicate a month to it, and spend your time training instead of alchemy-ing.

    You could learn a little first aid, but most of what Zeek does is shrouded in the mysteries of Exidaid, and he won't just teach to anyone.

    Troll farming is a good idea.
    Take anyone who fights better than Thom, and Thom himself. Thom basically pays fucking attention while the other guys kill things, then tries to apply what he's learnt, and has the other guys pay attention to how he does.

    The Smithy won't accept new workers, guild rules. The junior workers have to get PROMOTIONS before they can take on any more starting level workers.

    1 Event roll.
    up to one Action/Adventure/Expedition you can go on
    up to 1 study roll, whether it is alchemy, fighting, etc. The things you do in your spare time when not running the estate.

    Depends on the level of magic involved. Wisdom for example was imbued by several arch-magi and the high priests of the Wild Gods (back when Erondia still worshipped them), and is one of the most potent magical items in Erondia, and would likely be worth more then the entire Green Family Estate, let alone your backwater border princedom.

    Norse bards kind of have to be. They don't get the protection of a tribe, and they're wondering around a land of vikings, etc. where murder isn't so much a crime as a social faux pas.

    Your character, having grown up in Erondia know that not only is this a stupidly impossible bad idea, but even if you did succeed, it wouldn't work for you, and breaking the artefact would need mages of legend. Possibly only two or three mages in Erondia could do it - together mind you - And they're the three Arch-Magi of the Mage's Guild, who are only answerable to the King.

    I would like to ask you something, Quest Lord.

    Do you fully understand what you did when you gave us the title to a Duchy? I ask because Dukes are, quite literally, one step below the royal family in social, pollitical, and military power. The Duke of Aquitaine conducted a civil war with the King of France himself and had a decent chance to win for a while, for instance. And he was just one duke, albeit a powerful one.

    >landed Knights
    These were the smallest landholders, generally overseeing between 20 and 200 peasants and their work, though some esteemed knights were appointed to rule over towns due to the fact they presented very little in the way of a social threat to their Lord's power.

    Generic title for tens of thousands of minor landholders (Baronets, ect.) who had a few knights serving under them, and the lowest rank of the peerage. Usually had between 1 and 20 knights under them, generally unlanded knights who were used for battle only.

    First "Real" rank of the peerage. Often considered the lowest rank of the nobility, these large landowners were also the first rank likely to have a keep that was anything more than a fancy name for a mansion. They were generally given dominon over between 2 and 25 minor lords and their retainers.

    A rank with some controversy, Viscount is probably more accurately called "Extremely powerful Baron." Later in the Middle Ages this was formalized into Viscount status and they were ranked above Barons but below Counts. They generally can call upon 3 to 30 Barons, though the upper end of that scale leans more towards Count status.

    Very large and esteemed landholder, generally had 2 to 3 Viscounts under them if applicable and dozens of Barons. Some counts do not answer to a Duke but directly to the King himself, though this is not common. Very powerful, lowest rank capable of conducting a real war (minor one, but still) by itself.

    Second highest ranked title after King. Largest landholders after the King, usually with between 2 and 8 Counts answering to them along with a multitude of Barons, Lords, and landed Knights. Extremely influential and powerful and as a group often shaped kingdom policy more than the King himself.

    Usually the largest landholder with the richest provinces under his direct rule, but not always.

    Titles of that level almost always come with lands and attendant retainers, and will always come with at least some power. Well, except in modern days of course. But back then, yeah, you would almost always get land and power.

    the lands and leige owed to it were given to a different dukedom long ago after the one we found dissappeared

    All true, but we will have claims to those lands as well. Especially if the deed was sealed by other lords of equal status. (I don't remember if it was or not)

    We might not get anything, but if at some later time we go to war over then lands then the King will have to let us be and not slap our shit for being uppity.

    Yeah, the bring everyone guy got voted down.


    The order is more/less in order, but the importance differs in Erondia. Also, since you're not part of Erondia proper, you're somewhat of a loose value - you're not directly accountable to anyone except the King, but you're not on par with the Dukes or Arch-Dukes (who are almost like Kings of lesser nations).

    Uhhh, Don't worry, there'll be new articles by now already.

    IRL you have the facts. In crazy fantasy land, landless dukes are around, generally hereditary titles belonging to people who have lost their lands, or have been earned by some act. They tend to hand around the court, or lead the King's Armies (so there's some power, if no land). Some titles have assumed titles (The Grand Exchequer and Treasurer of the Kingdom is a Duke, with all the benefits of being a duke, but no land or armies (other then the tax collectors)).

    Well, a more direct Royal Bloodline then you have. Seeing as blood is linked to power thanks to things like the Staff Wisdom, The Sword Justice, and stuff, the next in bloodline has a natual advantage in any power stuggle. There's some royal blood in all the families, but you're just so far down on the ladder it's a moot point.

    He's the King. He don't HAVE to do shit. It'll be an argument to get him not to slap you down though - because the laws of the land mostly run everything, and he doesn't even see many of the cases, only the most disputed get to the King's Court.

    Did Quest Lord's internet die again?

    so it would seem, this also means he was probably typing long text and and lost it

    The trick is to use notepad so you don't lose your long text!

    I blame Conroy and Tony Abbot. They're made for each other anyway. I can see them getting caught doing a David Campbell.

    Something is afoot in Australia, I suspect giant spiders and kangaroos are involved.

    And huge snakes as well. I had to catch one today.

    So we could also blame the stingrays? If they didn't kill him he wouldn't be a malevolent ghost attacking Quest Lord's computer.

    Can't contact him, sorry guys. Just have to wait around and see if he comes back.

    What is his messenger ID anyway?

    As in his email address? He probably wouldn't appreciate me giving things like that out.

    but if you don't give it to us how do you expect us to flood it with random porn and offensive material?

    >> Not a tripfag 06/08/10(Tue)08:04 No.10358949
    Hehe I already do enough of that. Difference is that I buy him drinks to make up for it.

    tell him to make one especially for lord quest, then he can just leave it if it gets overrun with porn

    Man, it only takes being chased down the street by a cassowary once before you stop writing off all the tales about Aus. Sure, lots of crap is dangerous, but not ALL of it.. and then you find out that all the tales the yanks tell are true, and you really do live in a murderous hellhole. Ever go camping at night? Shine a light into the bush. Those pinpricks? WOLF SPIDERS. As we speak, my spare bedroom's cupboard is filled with white tails. Everytime I pay an exterminator to gas them, they are back inside a week. I came within an inch of being stung by a platypus, and my friend was. I've been stung by a bluebottle - one of them hit my balls because I was wearing baggy shorts. I've had a wombat charge my ankles and knock me down, then run over the top of me. I get divebombed by magpies everywhere I go, and I swear those fucking kookaburras are laughing at me.

    Everything fucking hates us.

    Thats actually a pretty good idea, might suggest it.
    We're going into winter mid year holidays down here, so you can expect a few more lord quests than usual.
