It's been a while since I've run a thread, so I'm a little rusty. First race to get three votes is chosen, unless things are a bit slow.Planning to update fairly briskly, don't take too long to answer.
Hell yeah, Insects!
>>25872931Dumb-trolls are stupid! Not like mighty-strong fast-quick skaven, children of the Horned Rat!
>>25872931>>258729632 for troll.>>258729461 for insects.>>258729501 for halfling>>258729531 for Skaven.
Trolls but only if they live under bridges if not halflings
Shouldn't skaven have a higher tech level, but no diplomacy? Or are we not going with Warhammer Fantasy skaven?Either way, Skaven for life!
Going For Demons, Desert
What if we switched to Minotaurs from Trolls? Both are stronk.
>>25872977They won't be living under bridges.>>25872987Hmmm... Might have a problem reproducing.>>25872987>>25872980>>25872953Three Skaven!
>>25872987Yes-yes the horned rat wills it!
Voting for location, and naming the plague priest, linked to this post.
>>25873007Trolls one first man
>>25873007if the conditional vote for trolls under bridges doesn't count then the conditional vote for gay skaven shouldn't count unless we establish right now that they are going to be flaming cocksuckers.
>>25873037I think you mean won. The guy said only if they live under bridges, and I can't see that working.
>>25872986Im changing my votes to Insect as well. Seem much more fun.
>>25873063Think it was a joke, but whatever you think/want
We are Plaguemaster Bulger the Rotting! We plot beneath Marienburg, and will bring the whole propserous city down with a few well placed rats!
>>25873062Fair point.VOTE FOR RACE:Trolls or Skaven.Include environment, not anything else. No sexual preferences to be expressed yet.
>>25873097Idea: Skaven AND Trolls. We are quick-smart brains for dumb-stupid trolls!
>>25872946>>25873032>>25873078>>25873097ISn't that hree for Insects, without conditionals?
>>25873097Mountain Troll. >SMITH cannotWe can't be smiths. Sorry guys.
>>25873118Smart-good skaven and strong-loyal Trolls here first! We will eat tasty-crunch insects!
>>25873168>>25873120>>25873119Seems like we're going with trolls, from the mountains.VOTE FOR TRIBE LEADER'S NAME.
>>25873234Carl von Face
>>25873234Big Papa. We are the father of all other currently living male members of the tribe
>>25873234Emiel Regis Rohellec Terzieff-Godefroy
>>25873264Carl of face. Needs a little work I'd say.>>25873280Pretty damn good. >>25873293I've got to say, I can never see a troll saying that. But we'll see.
>>25873234Gronk the Great Devourer
>>25873234Trolls are generally sort of stupid so our leader would want something short and easy to remember. I imagine Troll language is pretty guttural, and since we're from the mountains I'll go withRok Thor
>>25873307Seconding. He eats enemies as it "grants him powers"
>>25873307>>25873303OP likes Big Papa, but I like Gronk. Why not have our actual name be Gronk the Devourer for anyone outside the tribe, and just have Big Papa as a title?
>>25873332And by the quotes I mean he just thinks it does because he's fairly dumb
>>25873354I like this, and it puts both at three votes.Gronk, Great Devourer and Big Papa of the mountain Trolls.If you guys want, come up with a name for the tribe. I'm going to write up the briefing.
>>25873377>>25873354>>25873340>>25873280That's three for Big Papa, and one for Big Papa AND being known as Gronk the Devourer.
>>25873395I think we should go by both.To our tribe members we are big papa, but all outsiders must call us gronk the devourer
>>25873381We are the Hungry Family. We are always eating. We will shove rocks and dirt in our faces if nothing else is at hand. When we do take time to prepare our food, its always a sentient being. Roasted dwarf, human stew, skaven kebabs, goblin mush, orc beef. We fucking love sentients
>>25873424Nah... too stereotypical.
>>25873418Nah. Anyone we're on good terms with, we're Big Papa. From our actual children and tribe, to friendly outsiders, traders, etcetera. But annoy us and it's Gronk the Devourer time.
>>25873443Hmm I see big papa as being intelligent... for a troll... and getting all the hot troll women, after all he's not called "big" papa for nothing
What size of Troll are we talking here? D&D 12-foot tall Trolls? 4-foot fit-under-bridge even without bridges? 60-foot tall Troll Hunter trolls?
>>25873280i support this. and stop recommending fancy elven names please.
did this die?
>>258735198+1d6 feet tall
>>25873659op said he was gonna write some stuff.. it's been 20 minutes
In the great mountains of Granake Th’ull live the mountain trolls. Possessing incredible regenerative abilities and sheer brute strength, trolls make devastating warriors. However, their physical talents are balanced out by their mental one. Or rather, lack of them. Most leaders are merely willing to spend their lives mating, eating and killing anyone stupid enough to wander north. But the world is changing, and the trolls are changing with it. The trolls further south are starting to learn human speech, use tools and considering not killing every traveller who passes through their territory. On the great southern peak, ‘Ead Smasha to the trolls, a troll named Gronk has torn control of his tribe from the previous leader. Since killing and eating the old leader, Gronk has grown bigger and stronger. Convinced this is because the old trolls strength has flowed into him, Gronk has sworn to eat every one of his enemies. Naming himself the ‘The Great Devourer’ and the new Big Papa, he is a troll with brains and ambition. Choose one and name the tribe.>A: Hunt (Mountain goats, Goblins and small hominids)>B: Worship (The mountain, The Big Papa. Choose one)>C: Scout (N, E, S, W)
>>25873686C: scout north
>>25873686>>B: Worship The Big Papa.
>>25873686>A: HuntI don't know how much food we have but it seems like having some spare food is good if we scout somewhere that we could send an extended expedition
>>25873686C. we should see how strong these southern trolls are>name the tribehow about the Sons of Stone?
>>25873686>A: HuntGonna have to kill us some goats
>>25873686A: Hunt (goblinoid/humanoid exclusively)The Big Eaters

>>25873686good background on the names.B: The Mountain.Name the tribe "Cildren of The Moıntain". we have a papa as leader after all.
>>25873738Children of the mountain is better than my name.
>>25873686>B: Worship The Big Papa.
>>25873738>>25873749>>25873755Three votes for 'The Children of the Mountain'.
>>25873686hunt goblinsName i liked the gentleman who suggested >children of the mountain
>>25873773Looks like we're worshipping big papa aswell.
>>25873773I believe that's actually two for "Cildren of The Mointain" and one for Children of the Mountain.
>>25873789Actually, Hunting has four votes. Specifically Goblins and small hominids.
>>25873818I assumed that was a typo. If I'm wrong, then I suppose we can have Cildren of the Mointain
>>25873838its the same name, typo or not.if its gonna be made to fit the troll phonetics, then it should only be when trolls talk their own tribe name.a deformed name in a narrating with correct spelling doesnt make much sense if you ask me.
>>25873838all bow down for bigg poppa!yees, bow, down!
Gronk roared to his children that they should go out and bring him food. In the depths of winter, even the trolls feared to roam the mountain. The blizzards could get a troll so lost, they might fall far enough to kill even them. With the coming of spring, the trolls generally went to find food, but Gronk’s battle with the old leader had distracted them. As they knuckled away, Gronk screamed after them. “Bring me sum goblins! De’ze well tasty!”. In the old days, only the Big Papa was allowed to eat the succulent dish that was goblins. Gronk had never tasted it, but the smell of it haunted him to this day.When the hunting trolls returned, they brought several goats and two dead goblins with them. More importantly, they had news. Further down ‘Ead Smasha, there was a goblin encampment. The Children’s late start to the season had caused the goblins to think the mountain was devoid of trolls.Will Gronk share the goblins with the tribe, or choose to maintain tradition and keep it for himself?Choose one as well.>A: Hunt (Mountain goats, Goblins and small hominids)>B: Worship (The mountain, The Big Papa.

>>25874020Hmm... No, I'll leave it. I'll nit comb the next one though.
>>25874041Is that even possible? If so, fucking do it. We can have some tasty slaves, and they fill out the tribe with more numbers!

>>25874081Meant to add, they cannot be impregnated by trolls.

>>25874116>>25874115In the interests of not Meta gaming, maybe you should try. Though it will probably kill them.
>>25874125cle-ver! bread and circus

>>25874139the tribe are our children and a good papa must give his children toys.we should tell them to try to be gentle though, don't wan them to come crying to us when their toys break

>>25874138>>25874125"Hay you lot, stop playing with your food!"We should do a large raid on the goblin camp, then capture as many as possible to create a captive slave/livestock population. And then play it off like starting late so the goblins got cocky was our idea to start with. We's dead clever.
>>25874224Big papa is dead clever it was his idea after all.
Gronk decided to keep the best of both worlds, so to speak. Giving one goblin to the tribe, he devoured the other himself. The meat was less stringy than mountain goat and less rubbery than troll, but not the heavenly meat he had been expecting. But the tribe seemed fantastically grateful for the mouthful of goblin that each member received. Even more welcome, particularly to the young males, was the news that the there were more goblins nearby.In the dead of night, Gronk lead the tribe down the slopes, telling them in no uncertain terms that they were to be as quiet as possible. Many of them could hardly suppress their blood lust, which exhibited itself in growling and smashing trees. Even Gronk bludgeoning a troll senseless couldn’t seem to calm them. Choosing to substitute stealth for speed, Gronk roared the charge. As they hurtled down the slope, swinging on the knuckles of their long arms, they saw many of the goblins running down the mountain. Some had gathered up weapons, mostly spears and cross bows. Gronk didn’t know what the cross bows were, until the troll next to him howled and clutched at his face. As the troll had been using his arms to propel himself, he tumbled over, taking several others with him. It was obvious to Gronk that stick throwers were dangerous, but letting goblins get away hurt his pride.Chase the fleeing goblins and let the tribe fight the armed gobbosOrAttack the armed goblins and send some of the young trolls after the fleeing ones(Hint; Only fire or acid will kill a troll, almost everything else can be regenerated from)>Children of the Mountain>Big Papa: Gronk the Great Devourer>Population: 22 Trolls (3F, 19M)>Technology: None
>>25874318>Attack the armed goblins and send some of the young trolls after the fleeing onesRAAAWWWRRLLL!

With a bestial howl, Gronk charged the goblins. The noise sent a primal chill through all of them, causing several to drop their weapons and run. However, it shows all of the ones that stand firm who the leader is; it’s Gronk. Near the back of the group, there was a goblin that looked a little different to the others. He wore a red robe and his ears were ragged with piercings. On the right side of his face, some form of tattoo snaked was inked under his skin. Seeing the fearsome bull troll charging them down, he turned his back and muttered an incantation under his breath. A spark of flame appeared, and then guttered out. He cursed, and spoke the incantation again with the same effect, hearing the trolls roar again. They were mere metres away. As the trolls slammed into the goblin line, the tattooed one spoke once more. This time a ball of fire roared into life, and he span around to deploy it. Even as he did, Gronk rose up in front of him, mouth and fists dripping blood. As his bowels emptied themselves, the goblin thrust the artificial fire toward Gronk’s face, high above him. At the same time, Gronk’s fists swung down the judgment of god. The shattered the goblin’s bones and pulped his body, but not before the fire ball connected. Reeling back, the Big Papa screamed in agony. The arcane fire died as quickly as it had appeared, but his face was torn by the brief encounter with the fire. Tumbling backwards, Gronk passed from the realms of consciousness.Some hours later, the Big Papa awoke. He lay in the cave, his face still searing with pain. He growled in pain, before noticing his surroundings. Quite apart from the abundance of food, there were several dozen live goblins in the corner. There were also several of the stick throwers, somewhat damaged, leaning against the cave wall. In front of him was the body of the fire goblin. With a terrible glee, Gronk devoured the corpse, savouring the meat and the pain in his face. This was the price of victory.>Cnt

>>25875002I meant spears as well
>>25874938D: Spears.A giant spear thrown with the power of a troll, it might almost be as effective as a scorpion.
What are the captives' conditions like?In cages, or in one big pen?
>>25874990If you want to. I may start bringing in more troll characters quite soon, particularly if another troll tribe is found. When I do (And I will, sooner or later.

Greater stick throwers will take a long time to research and even longer to make. You don't have the material or tools either.>>25875059Neither. They are simply huddled in the corner. If they run, it's a long way down the mountain and it's very cold, even in spring.
>>25874966UglyGronk? I think you mean HandsomeGronk>>25875027what a faggot.
>>25875027sure, because troll are gonna use spears.bye.
>>25875052Yes but I don't think the goblins don't have the know how or the materials to make almost a bilista type weapon for us. Best they make something simple but large, this'll make our combat potential larger by a large margin. I say we get humans to make stick throwers for us because they're bigger than goblins so they can easily make them
>>25874938Research troll weapons, and also take a look at what ever structures the goblins had, some sort of great hall would be nice...and hold a feast with the dead goblins, and any of the live onesthat are sick + some extras males, we don't need many male ones to breed them>>25875027No it's not, we just need to smash things better.
>>25875084You should have said something then. Let's go scout to the west.

>>25875130Actually, OP, I've gotta run. I'll see you around.
>>25875084How about just a couple of rocks to throw and a small tree/large log as a club?
>>25875153I second this. Also, scout for hoomins.

>>25875168Worship Big Papa, FireStopper, Asheyes. Musher of of little green things
So, it seems we need to review this a little. Most people seem to think research is good, but think that well have troll crossbows in one turn. Some people want to explore, maybe to find more trolls or humies to build greater stick throwers. Others want to worship our great Big Papa!Choose one of these three.>Worship>Research>Explore (N, E, S, W,)The new name seems to be 'Gronk the Marked/Gouged, along with a few titles.
>>25875244>>WorshipWorship Big Papa, FireStopper, Asheyes, Wartcock. Musher of of little green things.
>>25875244Worship Big Papa
>>25875168>heres what you can research this turn.>Just kidding, you don't even have the materials to research that
>>25875244Research, we should at least use bigger sticks to fight
>>25875206>Musher of little green thingsall i cna think of is the mushed peas served with fish and chips
Rolled 46If you guys are into civ threads some dude made this http://www.reddit.com/r/CivThreads/It's only starting but would be cool if we could get more people involved, plus the threads won't 404 so we can get some long running threads if people are interested
>>25875280using your brain is allowed, see no resources equals we have none
>>25875295>http://www.reddit.com/r/CivThreads/is that some dude you?jumping in threads posting others is also bad fucking manners
>>25875295>Reddit I don't like how the website is laid out. I could care less about the actual people that go their.
>>25875306Where does it mention resources anywhere?The first time anyone mentioned it, was when he was saying we can't research anything.
>>25875280Its kinda common sense to think that we need bigger crossbows that consume more materials to makeWe trolls are fucking huge, we can't possibly work a crossbow made for goblins
>>25875295reported troll spammer
>>25875326>Hey guys, heres what you can research this turn.>Lets research that then.>What made you idiots think you could research anything?
>>25875325>Where does it mention resources anywhere?exactly my point, they are not mentioned means they are not there
>>25875244>>>25875168How about just a couple of rocks to throw and a small tree/large log as a club?
>>25875295...I find Reddit confusing.>>25875325That's not what I'm saying, you can research them, it's just going to take a really long time. People seemed to think it would take one turn and we'd instantly have crossbows.>>25875345>>25875280You seem to be trying a little hard.
>>25875345We can research it probably by thinking or drawing blueprints about it but building one for trolls is another deal
>>25875355Occams razor suggests otherwise.
>>25875345you could research it, but it will take a while and you will also need to spend some time to collect needed materials.you need to actually think for yourself. otherwise oop would just sit and write a story, why do we even choose if we dont even think about our coises.
>>25875345He's just warning us that we shouldn't expect any significant results and should expect wasted time. We shouldn't make tech our primary focus as trolls.
>>25875395occams razor? simplest explanation?not mentioned, not there
Let's forget about the research confusion and just move on. Worshipping, yes?
I'll just be quite seen as my won't make a difference
>>25875463Yes you are right
Alright, all we're gonna do from now on is worshipWorship Big Papa and kidnap and rape goblinsNo more research or settlement improvement anymoreWe fucking trolls now
>>25875520What about exploring? To find more goblins once they start leaving
No I didn't make any of the civ threads myself and I apologise if it was bad form to post a link in this thread, I am just semi lurking as busy tonight, but I try to be active in all the civ quests and quest threads as they are the reason I come to this site.Apologies again and I will contribute to the thread when I can
>>25875520I think we should fuck our females first before we even fuck the goblinsI mean our breeding rank is Abysmal
>>25875550Hey Wavetwister long time no see! You better contribute, the last one we did was awesome!
>>25875550>civ quests and quest threads as they are the reason I come to this site.That's when you know 4chan has gone to shit. When there is literally nothing to do but civ's and porndumps
>>25875547That's a great fucking idea>>25875582You too, not only we should fuck goblins, also other trollsThere will be no hole left unfilled
>>25875589Yo ranger!!Are we able to have the goblins work for us on the proviso they won't be eaten by us or other trolls, we can use them for doing research and scouting.
After some yelling and slapping, Gronk managed to get the ttibe to relate to him the events of the previous night. After he fell, the younger trolls had taken off after the fleeing goblins, slaughtering most and bringing back a few captives. The whole tribe had then gathered round their fallen chief, planning to devour him together. But, to the group’s shock, Gronk was still alived. Convinced he was blessed and had been chosen by ‘Ead smasha, they dragged him back to the cave and left the greatest share of the goblins to him. One of the younger bulls attempted to eat the fire goblin, and had been torn apart and eaten by the tribe. Where before there had been the devotion of underlings, the tribe now followed Gronk like disciples followed a messiah. Many days were spent roaring his name, from the cave mouth and from the top of the mountain. During his recovery, Gronk spent much time with the females. The roaring made the Children of the mountain feel mightier than ever before, but also attracted Trolls from the mountain to the North. In troll cant, the mountain was named ‘God Eata’. In ancient times, humans had dragged their sacrifices to it’s peak and left them there. When this source of food dried up, the trolls of that mountain turned on the neighbouring tribes. Long years of bloodshed dissuaded them eventually, but they were still known as the most war mongering of the plans. One of them inflicted an injury on one of the Children’s young trolls, and ordered that Gronk come before their chief to be judged. It has been a long time since the last troll war, and their tribe is not much loved.Choose two.>A: Hunt (Mountain goats, Goblins and small hominids)>B: Worship (The mountain, The Big Papa.

We should encourage the goblins to breed. Then we should go try to scare off the other trolls or take over their clan.

When his strength had been recovered, Gronk himself took to roaring of the mountain top himself. With his tribe’s support, he felt more powerful than ever before. However, even with all his power, he could not reproduce what the fire goblin had done. Gronk didn’t know goblin speak, but found that one of the goblins knew a little troll. He found it hard to believe what it told him, but listened none the less. The goblin spoke of great big camps of stone, like caves without roofs, which housed thousands of goblins, humans and other things Gronk had never heard of before. The little goblin, named Tak-Tak by Gronk, said there were even a few trolls. Most of them were captives, but a few wandered around free. Gronk could hardly imagine a troll living alongside goblins and not capturing or eating them. It was through Tak-Tak that Gronk ordered the goblins to begin manufacturing things for him. The material brought back from the camp was cut and remade into bags and over shoulder straps. The bags were troll sized, and sown with rope. They were strong enough to hold several of the rocks the Children favoured for throwing. This took many days, days full of shouting and feasting by the trolls and hard work by the goblins. Gronk had also hinted to Tak-Tak that he wished for the goblins to reproduce, causing some disruption in the slaves. Tak-Tak asked Gronk if they could build a small enclosure for themselves inside the cave. Privacy was mostly alien to Gronk, but it seemed important to the goblins. Many of the younger trolls spent a lot of time following Gronk around, listening to everything he said and watching whatever he did. At first it was annoying, but Gronk soon found their presence a reminder of his power. >Cont.
>>25876280Choose whether the goblins are allowed a little privacy, or if this is asking too much. Building it costs no action, but will affect how the slaves see you.Choose if Tak-Tak should be made chief of the goblins, and whether Gronk should learn the common tongue, or if Tak-Tak should learn more troll.Choose two.>A: Hunt/Gather (Mountain goats, Goblins and small hominids/ Wood, Stone)>B: Worship (The Big Papa)>C: Scout (N, E, S, W) >D: Research, via goblin slaves (Troll weapons, Troll technology)>E: Diplomacy (Specify what/where/how)>F: War (Specify what/where/how)>Children of the Mountain>Big Papa: Gronk the Marked, Great Devourer, Ash eyes and Fire stopper.>Population: 21 Trolls (3F, 18M)>Slaves: 36 Goblins (12F, 24M)>Troll Technology: Rock Bags>Goblin Technology: Stick throwers, spears>Resources: None

>>25876292Worship Big Papa! Tak-Tak is chief of the goblinsDon't build it, they need to prove their loyalty first. A.Hunt for mountain goat, take some goblins with you.
You could've been killing humans by the thousands right now /tg/You could've stopped this. Now we have slow progress on troll fucking and eating everything.You could've stopped this
>>25876280Very nice let's Stockholm syndrome them, give them the screen-thingy>>25876292Tak-Tak is leader of the food.. uhmm I mean slaves, let Gronk learn some aswell as Tak-Tak(like the name btw)D, combat, just train with the rocks D, troll weapons, some clubs and such, just jank out a couple of trees and de-root them.
>>25876292Yeah build the shed, it'll allow greater loyaltyGuys I think we should team up with the goblins. We don't eat them but we make them our brothers in arms against the other races. We can't always be on the front lines because its is Way WAY hard for us to breed so we fill that niche in by letting the goblins fight for the major battles. Besides they'll build some weapons and become our magic users.Who thinks this is a good idea?
>>25876376>>25876341 here. I agree, but i think they need to prove themselves. Eat the weak ones so the strong survive.
>>25876292How about a temporary privacy screen? Give it to the Goblins with a guard right outside for their breeding, and then remove it aftrrwards. That way, they like us a bit more, but can't scheme.Tak-tak should be promoted, and Gronk should learn common.(How much food do we have? if a little, then A.If not, research troll weapons.)Also, Scout out somewhere. West, perhaps.
>>25876376I like this idea, but lets take some time, see if they are willing to do so
>>25876388food is not to be played with, it becomes poison for us>>25876404never breed our slaves stronger, they will rebel.
>>25876405Food is not such a bis issue for trolls, but I'll start noting it down.>>25876405The first person not to try and pick both on the language choice. People, you were supposed to choose which to focus on.
>>25876429>never breed our slaves stronger, they will rebel.True, though we are trolls. If we eat enough, it will be population control.
>>25876446arrait then, gronk learn common
>>25876341Agree with everything apart from taking goblins, also big papa should impregnate our females.And we need to get better weapons to take over the other tribe.
>>25876459No, this is a bad ideam trolls are way more stupid than goblins. Tak-Tak can learn 3 languages faster than a troll can learn one
Question for OP. How long do our trolls/goblins generally live? Also, who becomes chief when Gronk dies?
>>25876494Agreed. Gronk would just be wasting his time. Tak-Tak can be an interpreter if needed anyway.
>>25876494valid point, but if we give the goblins our language, we give them an advantage, we can take our time learning it, im in no rush for talking with them
>>25876519Gronk will never die, kill the blasphemer!
>>25876519these questions will come more often if we give them our language
>>25876469Glad to see someone is still thinking aout the other tribe. They're thinking about you...Also, I may as well mention, all three females are pregnant. The only problem is, it's going to take ages before they give birth. On the plus side, they give birth to trolls, which are near un-killable.>>25876494Then you are reliant on Tak-tak for talking to anyone other than trolls. Just saying.>>25876519Trolls live for a very long time. They're almost entirely immune from disease and terribly hard to kill. Goblins, on the other hand, live a scant thirty odd years and can die very easily. Infection and disease are big killers for them, much like humans. Trolls don't really feel wither.
>>25876538Gronk prefers smashing 'eads to learning puny goblin speak.We are proud of are trollish heritage.
Big papa is the cleverest troll ever, if anyone can learn to speak to the weaklings it's him.
>>25876560sleepingtaim guise-get rocks-diplo the other trolltribe(possibly eate their chief)-$$$laters
>>25876582Are you saying gronk can't already bash heads? because if you are we might have to arange a demonstration.
>>25876582It was the common tongue, not goblin speak, that was on offer. This is the language spoken in most major population hubs. It was explained by Tak-Tak that in the big tents with lots of thing in them, everyone speaks that tongue.
>>25876612 Do it
>>25876560Obtain new Tak-Tak upon his likely quick death. Might as well extend the order to him teaching a younger Goblin trollish as well. The Chieftain of our Goblin slaves will always be the translator or something like that. If none is provided we eat them all.
>>25876493I still think this is the way to go
So, there seems to be consensus that Tak-Tak be made chief of the slaves. I like this>>25876649 which allows for many Tak-Taks. On the other hand, learning a language takes time, so don't kill off the current Tak-Tak too soon.The vote has sung towards allowing privacy for the goblins, just barely. This >>25876405 says they should be temporary, and only for breeding. Thoughts?There's a quite a few people saying scout East or west, with others saying gather resources or worship. Decision?
>>25876693Yes big papa should learn to speak the common languageAlso I think apart of the worship of big papa should be the belief that all trolls are his children.
>>25876718For breeding is fine i guess. Just make sure that they are actually doing the do.Worship, always worship.
>>25876718Temporary, weave some branches into a screen, we can use it to cover cave entrance afterward to keep shit weather out. Please research some clubs, just from trees
>>25876718Worship and send scouts to the other troll tribe, find out about their leader.also give the goblins a certain degree of privact, but make sure they don't sneak in anything to make weapons.
>>25875295Just had a look at this, there's fucking magic bunnies as a race. So fucking dumb.
Yea it's always a struggle when I breed with an Elf too.
>>25876774That's Reddit for you.
>>25876718I care not for which direction, but for all we know, there could be a menace 10 feet to whichever direction remains unexplored.I also vote for simple clubs.
>>25876767Ooh, yes. Diplomacy. Also, I suggest a small clan of Gobbos come as well to demonstate the power and vastness of our kingdom. They could also be gifts in a pinch.
Damn, I hoped that would solve things. No we have two a piece for worship, diplomacy and researching clubs. You need to drop one.Choose two.>Diplomacy to the other tribe>Worship Gronk>Research clubs made from trees
>>25876855I don't know, the other clan knowing we have slaves could cause them to covet them. They are warmongerers and probably have more numbers/better fighters than us.
>>25876900>Research clubs made from trees>Diplomacy to the other tribe
>>25876900Clubs For now at least.
>>25876900Worship gronk and tree clubs.
>>25876926You mean drop clubs?
>>25876938Yeah. We should probably see what the other tribe is doing. Clubs can wait.
>>25876900>>Diplomacy to the other tribe>Research clubs made from treesCome on guys. srsly.
>>25876919>>25876931and me makes 3 for clubs, and also chalk me up to worship
>>25876900Drop the worshipFor now
>>25876978Ofcourse we all still worship gronk so...
>>25876966That's why a goblin caste is going to be essential. We should also try to get other races in the mix.
>>25876978>>25876963>>25876949>>25876919That's a majority for clubs and diplomacy.
>>25876978>>25876926 hereI'm thinking Gronk probably has had enough worship. I change my vote
>>25877001In 4X games there is always a trade off between early and late growth. Early growth happens by taking territory and stuff; late growth happens by research and population growth. We have a research penalty and abyssal population growth so we will have to conquer with our intrinsic combat bonuses before the other races get too powerful for us. In the late game we will probably need allies.
>>25877038Other races, or other groups? Not all races are marshalled under on banner, or in one nation.
Clubs and diplomacy, we've already got a cult. (Which we should try to convert the other clan to, so our clan can get swole.)
>>25877064The only other race with as bad population growth as us is demons, so both apply.
Inb4 we fail horribly at making wood clubs
With might clubs and friends, Big Papa can surely take all of the mountain! Maybe even the hills beyond. How much do we know about the mountain? The lands around it?
>>25877142We accidentally make laser guns
>>25877142We don't make themThe goblins do
>>25877175That we use as clubs. Shiny, sparkly, burning clubs.We ogryns now?
>>25877183If we get a splinter, kill the fuckers
>>25877193In about 38000 years.
>>25877164The further north you go, the worse it gets. Cold even in the summer, the far north is deadly even to trolls. We don't know much about the east or west. Strange people come from the south, like the goblins and human travellers that come this way sometimes.Directly north is a peak named 'God Eata' where another tribe lives (named in the update, incoming) and they have ordered that Gronk come and be judged.
>>25877233Gronk should go. once they see gronk they will kneel before him
>>25877303Should we take Tak-Tak? I'm not so sure about leaving the leader of the goblins behind.
When he told that there would be privacy screens erected for breeding, Tak-Tak sagged in relief. He was less thrilled when told that he would be teaching Gronk how to speak the common tongue, but wasn’t stupid enough to let it show. He was also both surprised and pleased when Gronk told him he was chief. Within ordinary goblin society, he had been a lowly scribe and translator. He had learned trollish as a pastime, not ever thinking it would come in useful. But now it had caused him to attain the dominant rank over all the goblins in the cave. Not bad for an ink fingered little weed.It was when the young trolls were following him on a trip to the mountain top, that Gronk saw the one who had been injured. Though the wound had long since healed, it sparked Gronk’s memory. It struck him that he had been summoned by the ‘Rock Eatas’, the trolls who lived on the mountain north of here. Not only had he been summoned, but in a dominant way. They had called him there to be ‘judged’. The Eatas were known for war and violence, not wisdom. Gronk knew when someone was asserting their superiority, and he wouldn’t have it. Gronk was the chosen! Gronk was the marked! He would not submit. In his place, he sent Dargalf. While not very bright, Dargalf was big and strong. Not as strong as Gronk – of course – but strong enough to represent the tribe. With him, he sent a dozen goblins.Gronk and the bull trolls were mightily pleased with their bags. It was like having an extra arm to carry the rocks in. Gronk had seen the goblin spears, and ordered Tak-Tak to havesome of them produced. When they arrived, they were a little disappointing. They were little more than tree trunks with sharpened ends. They didn’t split troll skin much better than troll claws. Tak-Tak, pressed against a wall and scared for his life, said he was sure they could be made better with some rock.>Cont.
>>25877403Dargulf and the goblins will be away until next turn. They cannot perform actions. To research clubs/spears, stone is required. Gathering is a separate action.Gronk can now spend the turn learning the common tongue. Otherwise, he will join in on the actions chosen. This does not affect how many can be taken, but may yield bonuses or penalties for his presence. Learning common speak will also incur bonuses and penalties.Choose two.>A: Hunt/Gather (Mountain goats, Goblins and small hominids/ Wood, Stone)>B: Worship (The Big Papa)>C: Scout (N, E, S, W) >D: Research, via goblin slaves (Troll weapons, Troll technology)>E: Diplomacy (Specify what/where/how)>F: War (Specify what/where/how)>Children of the Mountain>Big Papa: Gronk the Marked, Great Devourer, Ash eyes and Fire stopper.>Population: 21 Trolls (3F, 18M)>Slaves: 36 Goblins (12F, 24M)>Troll Technology: Rock Bags, Primitive clubs>Goblin Technology: Stick throwers, spears>Resources: None>Food: Average, plentiful if the slaves are also on the menu

No killing anything that talks, and stay off any roads they find, but follow them and look for towns. I want to know who lives in this southern place. Put that down as scouting
>>25877417Have Gronk learn, while the others gather stone and wood.(Thanks for the fun thread, OP!)
Looks like the main votes are hunting for goats, and scouting south.We can have an orgy with the three female trolls without having to spend an action right? Gotta keep up our title as Papa

Over the following days, Gronk sent his tribe out to gather food and wood. The trolls scoured ‘Ead smasha for the stringy mountain goats that provided the Children with most of their food. Many were brought back and gathered in the far corner of the cave. Although terrified by the trolls, they were easily calmed by the goblins. They were penned in by the stacks of wood that littered the cave, all brought in from the mountain. It was soon discovered that, not only did they provide meat, the goats could be milked. No troll was able to do it, but the small, nimble goblins could. Using a cauldron brought with them from the wreckage of their camp, they gathered up and served Gronk the produce of several days milking. All trolls have an instinctive desire to eat and drink everything, knowing that there is little that their powerful stomachs cannot handle. So it was that Gronk chugged back the cauldron quite happily, and pronounced the liquid to his liking. The goblins were congratulated and told to produce more.While the tribe searched the mountain, Gronk sat for long hours with Tak-Tak and a young bull troll named Moruk. Gronk had determined that Moruk would act as his second, as he had an ideal mixture of smarts and strength, though not enough of either to threaten Gronk. After some days of training, Gronk came to decision. He needed to know more of the world to the south. He told Moruk that he was to go south with five goblins and see what he could. He was also told not to eat anything that could talk, at least not until he’d heard what it had to say. With his smattering of common and cunning use of sign language, as well as the five goblin’s smattering of troll, they could communicate with some articulacy.>Cont.
>>25878338It was three days after Moruk left that disaster struck. One of the trolls that had been out on gathering duty had not yet returned, which was not that unusual. Trolls sometimes took their time in returning, particularly if they fell a long way. The falls would rarely kill them, but it would take them some time to find their way back up. It had been assumed that this troll had chased a goat without looking where he was going and had taken a bit of a tumble.The tribe, or what was left at the cave, was therefore surprised when the troll hurled himself into the cave mouth covered in blood. Deep wounds had been gouged into his sides, while his own claws showed signs of recent combat. When he recovered his breath enough to speak, he grunted and growled to Gronk that the Skull Eatas were coming. They had kill Dargulf and the goblins, and had caught him near the northern foot of the mountain. They had been about to kill him too, but he claimed his faith in Gronk had granted him the strength to escape their claws. He had run all the way back to the cave, giving his injuries no time to heal. They were less than a day behind him, with at least two dozen trolls. With Moruk away, Dargulf dead, and this one injured, things were not looking good. It was at this time all eyes turned to Gronk. This battle would either raise him, or destroy him. The same was true for the Children of the mountain.And with that, I must leave you. It’s late where I am and I have work tomorrow. Tune in in about eighteen hours for the next thread, when Gronk’s fate, and the fate of the civilisation, will be decided. >Children of the Mountain>Big Papa: Gronk the Marked, Great Devourer, and Fire stopper.>Population: 20 Trolls (3F, 17M)>Slaves: 24 Goblins (6F, 18M)>Troll Technology: Rock Bags, Primitive clubs>Goblin Technology: Stick throwers, spears>Resources: Wood, Goats (Goats produce meat and milk every turn)>Food: Plentiful, abundant if the slaves are also on the menu
>>25878359Worship the mountain and begin to gather arms with the goblins by our side. Its gonna be a big battle tomorrow
>>25878398No we worship gronkWorship gronk and feast in order to be strong for the coming battle tell the goblins we'll grant them some freedoms if they fight by our side.If possible gronk should personally challenge the leader of out enemy to one on one combat, if he declines his tribe will see him for the weakling he is.

There is one way we can ensure victory against the Rock Eaters. We must use FIRE. But we shall not wield it, no. The goblins will hold the fire for us, and throw it at the rock eaters, and burn and hurt them before we smash them with some clubs! Everyone knows a troll can heal, but not when burnt by fire!The only problem is making sure the goblins can't use fire to rebel
