>>27893783Merfolk in the desertOr Human's on the beach
>>27893783So like, mother fucking insects
>>27893783just noticed a few spelling errors. My bad
>>27893832>Merfolk in the desertSounds like a blast.
>>27893867WE COULD BECOME MERSANDFISH!
>>27893902FOR SHAI-HULUD, GOD SERPENT OF THE ENDLESS DUNE-WAVES!
But seriously you fuckers, Desert Insect people, cause we'd be radical as FUCK
>>27893925>Not wanting to live in the oasis of a desert that was once an ocean, evaporated as a vengeful god for punishment against the hubris of your Merfolk ancestors.>Not using magic to rise above the punishment and become the first Sandfolk, swimming through dunes as effortlessly as your ancestors surfed the sea.Get it together, man.
Another vote for Desert MerfolkOr Centaurs anywhere.
>Merfolk in desertyou control six merfolk in a river in the middle of a desert. three are male and three are female. One male and One female have legs. The river is 5 foot deep and travels from North to South. Along the sides are reeds. What do?Names of these Merfolk?
Rolled 15>>27893950Pick reeds, make a reed staff and a reed hat. Pray to the reed gods.
>>27893950Legged male will be called Maud'Dip, not Dib, we are merfolk afterall.
>>27893950thought I should tell you, your life span is 8 in game days in total (3 childhood and 5 adulthood)>>27893962both the men and women pick reeds and start to weave them. Your technique could be a lot better but your new hats keep the harsh desert sun off of you
Rolled 94>>27893950They are named Inky, sponge bob, George, sunny, "nature boy" rick flair, and Pamela
Rolled 85>>27893986Pray to the reed gods, merfolk orgy time.
>>27893986Weave reeds into matting, that can be used to create rafts, floating lounges, walls and sunshades.
>>27893986Merpeople only live for 8 days?Balls.I propose a dam so we can get to work on our love nests asap.
We should start in like, a little oasis or something but be forced to evolve supah quick you know!? IT ONLY DOESN'T MAKE SENSE IF YOU WON'T LET IT.
>>27894032you try your weaving skills out some more and create a net/wall that drapes over the south side of your current residence. this takes half a day but it has already stopped a few small, delicious fish.
>>27894072Okay, so we definitely need to work on the net. Weave more reeds to make nets further north, See if we can catch more fish up there, maybe make a settlement 'tween the two of them.
Rolled 92>>27894072And breed, plz thx
have to go to the shops, be back soon. Will be on my phone
>>27894189Stay beautiful ;)
d100Im such a fucking pleb, this is a test
>>27894302Forgot to change my name
>>27894317It's aight mane, I think I might be the only one here but I love these threads, I just cant figure out how to roll cause I might be retarded
Oh my god no.
>>27894343Is there a problem?
Rolled 45>>27894351Yes, I just feel too autistic to breathe
Rolled 42>>27894343Just look at the other posts that did it successfully.
Rolled 82>>27894370I figured it out, I was just trying to remember what the sticky said without checking it and fucked up a bunch.
Back on topic?
Rolled 89>>27894392Of course Nimble, I'm sticking by my original post and saying we should make more nets before breeding. We can't raise healthy children without a steady food supply.
Rolled 9>>27894416Seconding maximizing our food-net production.
backthe Merfolk work until sunset on another net. How many will go to install it upstream?
Rolled 36>>27894464The two with legs, sea predators cant catch a nigga on land
>>27894483The moon glisten on the merfolk as they swim upstream where they find the fish are larger. Perhaps further upstream they are even more so.>set up here>move further upstream(some names would be good. Also, don't forget to check the already checked nets)
Rolled 40>>27894518Okay, so I get to name them now? I'll try and think of some good ones, but set em up here, we're not that great with weaving and a destroyed net is a pointless wasted net.
>>27893783>Making the race that's part goat have low breeding rates>Not realizing goats are horny motherfuckers and are ready to breed while still very young adolescents and will attempt to do soFor serious though, even in mythology satyrs are randy motherfuckers who love to party.
>>27894562just because they constantly fuck does not make them more fertile
>>27893783Dude that's an Azata, not a Lamia. Lamia's don't have wings
>>27894579>15% chance of having wings (called Lillend)
>>27894591Lillends are generally peaceful unless they intend vengeance against someone they believe guilty of harming, or even threatening, a favored art form, artwork, or artist. Then they become implacable foes. They use their spells and spell-like abilities to confuse and weaken opponents before entering combat. A covey of lillends usually discusses strategy before a battle.A lillend’s natural weapons, as well as any weapons it wields, are treated as chaotic-aligned and good-aligned for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction.Size/Type: Large Outsider (Chaotic, Extraplanar, Good)no relation to Lamias.
>>27894617at the bottom there is a disclaimerplease read everything before you criticize
I'd like to apologize and get back on trackThe legged merfolk plant the net in the river successfully. It is getting dark and they are getting hungry>check the net to the south>other
Rolled 54>>27894641scout the land, NAO
Rolled 89>>27894641Quick one though! Don't spend too long out there!!!!!
>>27894653which direction? (East or West)
>>27894685under the cool of the night, the legged merfolk crawl up the bank and scout the dry land. After a few minutes, their skin starts to dry but find a small nest of desert mice. How do you proceed getting these mice?
Rolled 22>>27894702describe the area around the nest for me chief.
>>27894702Dig a trench to and around their den, so as to trap them.
>>27894713It has been dug into a sand dune and is flat all the way around apart from said dune.
Rolled 53>>27894750Hrmm, okay throw a rock to startle em and just try and catch the bastards, the fish would be better for us anyways
>>27894740>>27894759you dig a small trench and throw in a rock. The mice scatter and run out further into the desert and are much faster on land than you. There is a single mouse that has made one of the trench walls to fall partially burying it
Rolled 48>>27894805Good 'nuff, Head on home leggys
Rolled 17>>27894805We should see if it's still alive.
>>27894842barely>>27894819you run back home with the young mouse and dive into the water.Everyone is hungry but one mouse isn't enough>check southern net>check northern netsorry guys QR isn't working and neither is quoting. I was trying to fix it
Rolled 71>>27894912South net, it's been there longer!!!!1
>>27894912both nets? We've plenty of merfolk.
>>27894918the south net has many little fish the size of you hand. There are ten of them. How many do you eat?
>>27894938Two fish for each person. Let the rest go.
>>27894947there are six of you and ten fish... that doesn't work. Although, you can still share them equally. What about the drowned mouse?
Rolled 58>>27894938Ask for a volunteer to try the mouse...
Rolled 56>>27894966Then the other 5 get fish, we can have enough to feed almost everyone for another day
>>27894966the male legged one has been given all the tasks so far and has taken that as he is the most important and has gotten cocky. He volunteers for trying the mouse and everyone else gets fish
Rolled 52>>27894986He is the leader! He is Lamaar the Mer! and he's legit as FUCK
the night goes on and you grow tired, tomorrow you will all be 5 days old>bump naughties before going to sleep>just sleep
Rolled 48>>27895039Hrmm, this is difficult. As a young race of fish people, we probably would be fucking by now, so lets do it. Bump those naughties Nimble, do it.
>>27895050fade to blackyou awaken to a much more shallow river. It is only 3 feet deep now which makes it much harder to move around and the reeds are dying. What do?
Rolled 17>>27895062FUCKIN SHIT THIS IS SERIOUS! Move to the northern part! Check the net and then SWIM FOR YOUR LIVES MY FRIENDS! SWIIIIIIIIIIIM NORRRRRRRRRRRRRTH!!!!!!!!!!
Rolled 79>>27895062And lol@clevercomment
>>27895071You check the net to find a sturdy wooden stick with a metal pointed end that makes it look like a T. There is a large hole in the net.
>>27895084>>27895062This is Nimble by the way. I don't know why my name didn't come up
Rolled 84>>27895097I assumed as much, nimble. we meet again.Lamaar gets the trap fucker, maybe he can use it as a weapon, so with the hole there's no fish?
>>27895104no fishHead North?
Rolled 74>>27895109Well, shit I don't know now, I don't want to fuck with the people with weapons yet so no, turn tail and head south, but keep that damn stick.
>>27895118you head southto the east is now plains but the river is still shallow. What do?>continue south>other this can't be good for the egg
>>27895129The reeds are dying but still there am I correct? Listen up motherfucker, shit's about to get complicated, We should stay by the plains, plains can grow things. Cut some reeds and simply stick them in the mud in a sort of reed fence around the egg, put leaves over it so the water is absorbed by the reeds and leaves and is constantly keeping the egg wet. We are staying here, in the 3 foot river by the plains.
>>27895150a-are you sure?currently it is in one of the females egg pouch (not legged)
>>27895161Hrmm Move further south then, best we got right now,
>>27895097Does the pointed end have more than one point and does it look like it has a sharp edge?
>>27895170after about half a day you reach a beach, with many fish and aquatic plants. Crisis seemingly avoided>>27895174yes it does... I hope you have figured out what it is now
>>27895185Sea wead nets, fuckin sea weed nets nigga, and have Lamaar try and kill some crabs and shit with the stick!!!!!!!!
>>27895194yay, Lamaar gets to kill things, he likes killing things. He swings hitting crabs with the pointed parts smashing them to pieces (but still salvageable) while the more intelligent merfolk create nets of seaweed. These nets are much stronger and could possibly be used to disable predators.the sun is almost setting and the egg in *insert name here*'s pouch is to big for her to carry around anymore but the tide is trying to carry in away. What do?
>>27895215Fold up a net and stick it in the wet sand, merfolk sleep around it to not let it move? would this work? and another name would be like.... Za'than
Oh my god I'm the only one working on this civilization! help me out niggas
>>27895233that will work. Hell, the net's heavy enough without the merfolk. Za'than for male or female?
>>27895244Female, another male should be named Ro'Shan, then Tali, the female, Rosha the male, Crosha, his sister (But it doesn't really fuckin matter right?) That covers it???
>>27895252yephere are the peopleLamaar - legged Male, low intellegence, high strength- 5 days oldZa'than - Legged Female, high intelligence - 5 days oldRo'shan - Male - 5 days oldTali - Female, Mother - 5 days oldRosha - Male - 5 days oldCrosha - Female - 5 days old
The egg is safe under the net, but everyone is hungry. Lamaar the strong has gotten plenty of crab meat, enough to last days.>have feast celebrating new egg>have feast celebrating new home>have feast followed by orgy>eat only whats necessary>other
We need to scout for materials to use our tech affinity on. being in the water means that reliable source of wood will be next to impossible to secure, which really cuts down on our options. Oh, and forget about smithing anything without the use of magic, which we suck at.Looks like we'll be heavily trade-dependent for advancement, so we should probably find some people to barter with.
Rolled 86>>27895302Patients dear friend, Patients. >>27895286Feast celebrating a new home! Eggs will be common on such a bountiful place pretty soon!
>>27895308Patients? Wait, we've got sick and/or injured? Why didn't you say anything!? That totally changes our priorities! Jeeze.Okay we'll need to diagnose their ailments first of all.
>>27895302you have those people who made the weird tool.>>27895308a feast it is! And than some more breeding! The crabs in these waters are large and delicious. This makes you happy! (+ morale)>sleep>sleep with a rotating watch (specify who and in which order)
Rolled 77>>27895319Rosha first watch, Lamarr for midwatch and Crosha for daybreak, They'll have easier days tomorrow.
>>27895316*insert sarcastic laugh*
Rolled 99>>27895316Patience faggot grammar police pls no too much sillythings for that
So are our people actually 5 days old or is that some kind of game abstraction? Because I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around a race that reaches sexual maturity in under 5 days having an "average" breeding rate.Not criticism, I'm honestly curious since it changes quite a bit in how best to approach the situation.
>>27895326Everyone is asleep but Crosha. The sun starts to rise and with a new day comes a new member of this family. A baby girl. This girl is incredibly beautiful, with colorful scales and human features that could end a war.What's her name and what would you like her to specialize in (diplomacy, fighting, scavenging, ect,)?>>27895357it's to make the game faster. Humans have the same aging rate while elves take 10 days before they'll die of old age. This way we can have more babies faster
Rolled 100>>27895357Silence nerd, the desert made breeding alot more difficult cause the babbies needed more water than there was or somethingBut this is a good point.
>>27895368Crosha has a newly formed egg in her pouch!and it seems Tali has been blessed by the godess of fertility because she is also (she is the mother of the hatchling)
Rolled 36>>27895368She should be named Halen, Cause I'm really not creative. Definitely diplomacy too, but train her to fight too, I don't want any of my Merfolk getting raped EVER
>>27895368Uh. Okay. That's certainly... an approach.But how about, instead, you turn the days into a longer period than one day. Weeks, months, years, whatever time frame you're comfortable with. Days is just kind of weird. I mean, how's any meaningful information passed on and...Eh whatever, it's your thing have fun with it.
so what are we doing today?
>>27895394I agree with this anon. Don't want her to end as a tragedy too.
Rolled 59>>27895420Merfolk on a beach now, We got a stick and a niggafish named lamaar, not to mention this hot ass merbitch named Halen, rest are side for right now
>>27895430that was me asking what the merfolk are doing and Halen is only a child
>>27895420Fishing and digging, and also training the newlings?
Everyone take turns getting the last female pregnant for as long as it takes. Gotta maintain that exponential population growth.
>>27895439are we going to become mining fish?I tell you some meta-knowledgethat pointy tool thing is actually a pick-axe
Rolled 90>>27895436OHHHHHHHHH okay nimble, sorry but I personally thing we should see if we can get some shells that can be chipped you know? Make weaponry or something alike it to cut the food into smaller portion if we need it or do maybe even more with our current seaweed nets if they can be cleaner cut and produced.
>>27895451why do they have to take turns?fivesome>>27895458so are we impregnating za'than or collecting shells?
Rolled 6>>27895472Ehhh probably going to collect shells, that's just my vote, if you disagree with a valid and good point I won't argue
>>27895476you send the three males and Za'than to collect shells while the pregnant women teach Halen.You find some good shells and even some strong rocks. On the beach you see naturally formed glass and some even better shells. Are you willing to send the legged ones onto dry land?
>>27895492Yes absolutely. They need as much practice as possible for when we start marketing merfolk poon to whoever made that tool we found.
Rolled 93>>27895492I think we should, Beachglass could be invaluable for us, sharper and more durable knives would you say? A chunk could even make those pickaxes that >>27895439You wanted my friend, Whaddaya say pal?
Rolled 13>>27895511We are honorable Merfolk, we will not partake in occupations such as those. Not now, not ever.
>>27895515Glass would make frankly awful digging tools.
>>27895525Oh sure I guess instead we'll trade them our... uh...... you know, stuff. That we have. Which would be....?
Rolled 49>>27895527Got too far ahead of myself with that, my point remains the same, We get the fucking glass.
>>27895515>>27895511Za'than and Lamaar trek up onto the hot sand. The dryness hurts their feet. Za'than grabs as much glass and shells as they can but Lamaar is interested in something else. He picks up a round white rock from the ground. "I have been discovered!" it shouts. The rest of the skeleton emerges from the sand and attaches it skull back on. "Spy" Za'than states.>end thread
>>27895550My twitter is @ManuelCrosslerwill post updates
Rolled 74>>27895556Ohhh fine....
>>27895454Wow, that was my third guess.>>27895515Not very good for digging, but good for knives and jewelry. But I agree on getting that glass..
Eh, skeleton should make useful tool materials.
>>27895577 (You)Wow that was delayed..
Rolled 96>>27895577 I agree, but it's whatever now, We'll just have to wait.

Rolled 99>>27895596Danke kind sir!
Sex is the only commodity of value that we have in excess, and the only one we've definitively demonstrated our ability to increase the supply of quickly. We're on track to double our adult population in the first week!Realistically, it's our best bet when it comes to trade and it's not like the merfolk seems shy about sex anyway. Seriously, name one other thing we've got that anyone with metal forging technology is really going to care about?
>>27895621I agree completely at this point, I was hoping to get resources and things like that up to par before the numbers but it's seeming we might need more hands on deck than anything right now.
Bonus points if the nearest surfacers are humans, means we can hopefully get some hybrids who're more comfortable on land out of it.
>>27895644That wouldn't be bad, but it better be a fucking white man. I'm getting real sick of this cucktold shit.
>>27895644Motherfuckin black guys wanna fuck white women then white men gonna be fuckin fish. Fuck ya'll.
