My people, awaken!I do not speak to you of the history of our clan, founded here in Dragon Pass eight years ago. I do not speak of the past two years, of the glory of the rainbow, of our success in the heroquests of Ernalda and Orlanth, nor of the great success we found in our raids on the Jenestni.I speak to you of cowards who descend on our home to burn us out, without honorable declaration or established feud. I speak of men who, having claimed more land than they could ever reasonably use, look at the map of Dragon Pass and wonder how they might increase their share. I speak of a clan that would reject the brotherhood of we Orlanthi and strike at the very identity of our clan--a clan that would spread the Chaos of kinslaying by destroying ours.I speak of the Stag Hearths, and I will see them shattered.
So it's closer to two hours for dinner. Assign clan magic and we'll get on with the important business of taking the Stag Hearths for everything they're worth.
>>28279403Hail, Heort-Son, Fimbul-Chief!See you there the people of your clan! See you there, Heort-Son, Dastandros Long-Beard, oldest of the carls, whose home is ash at Stag-Hearth hands.See you there, Heort-Son, Fedarkos Silversmith, whose forge lies consumed not by the flame within, but by Stag-Hearth flames.See you there, Heort-Son, Hindala Daugter of Enastarra, God-Speaker, whose shrine shall go to ruin for lack of sacrifices.See you there, Heort-Son, Enerin Daughter of Beneva? Nay, you see her not, held in foul thrall-dom by Stag-Hearth chains.See them, Heort-Son, and wax wroth whither the Stag-Hearts, despoilers, enemies, instigators of kinstrife.Call on Humakt, that he imbues the Thanes with the power of the sword called Death! Raise the fyrd, and pass you stout axe and stout spear and stout shields to man and women both, Orlanth and Vinga at their backs!Hail, Heort-Son, Fimbul-Chief, guardian, leader, conqueror, bring fury, bring vengeance against Stag-Hearth knaves.
>>28279403Full magic in everything except for Children and Hunting. No reason to do anything else if you can afford to
>>28279403Is Orstalor the only remaining original member of your council?Fucking jesus.
>>28279430Well, there is, in that stocked clan magic acts as a luck modifier.This is my recommendation for what it's worth. We can pick what heroquest to run at the end of the year, add another treasure to the stock if nothing else.
>>28279495It's good enough. Onward, Heortson.
Holy shit. If only he weren't a Elmal-worshipper.Actually... we could switch out Jarstakos for Baranthos, then switch Elmalandti for this new young Uraldan, which will benefit our herds and herd magic. I was just going to heal everyone up in preparation for raiding season, but this is very promising.>>28279475No, not at all. Everyone else just hit their next age tier, so they look old as hell.
>>28279577My god. he's an immortal
The is Sea season, so it's not quite raiding time yet. We have two months to prepare. Here's what we can do:We can heal everyone up. That will cost goods or cattle.We can rearrange our clan ring, which could greatly benefit our warring ability.We can hire more weaponthanes. Up to six more.We can sacrifice to Humakt for Battle Luck.
>>28279704Do all of those. Hire all six weaponthanes. Heal everyone up. Sacrifice to Humakt.The Stag Hearths won't know what hit them.
>>28279740We can only do two of those things. Time restraints full.
>>28279740Can only do two before Fire season. We're starting the raiding party early this year. We'll do the other two in Earth season.Oh, actually, that gives me an idea. We'll do the healing in Earth season. So pick two of three:>thanes>ring>Battle LuckKeep in mind that the Battle Luck is temporary unless enshrined.
>>28279785Ring and thanes
>>28279785Rings and Thanes.Cleanse. Burn.
>>28279925Careful with those goods now. We need to make our seasonal sacrifices.
>>28279925>avoid a feudHow about... no?
>>28279951She's a follower of Ernalda. Ernalda bitches don't know what's what.SPEAKING OF BITCHESDo we have Fyrdwomen yet? That is sooo good.
Goodbye Elmalandti. If you ever hit heroic combat yourself we might bring you back in.>>28279948That option went unselected. I'm not giving the thanes extra gifts. That's an option you use to not ruffle their feathers when you bring in more people.>>28279962That was the first ritual we enshrined.
>>28280007Actually no it isn't.Choosing from outside the clan may or may not get you the number of weaponthanes you want. Adding gifts onto that simply makes it so you get the exact number you want. Choosing from within the clan lowers your total number of farmers/hunters/crafters. That's the only mechanics that go into it.
The Old Owls want us to kill a Chaos walktopus creature for them. They can't do it themselves because their thanes were hurt fighting the Jenestni. That's a pretty legit reason to help right there.Or we can demand a treasure as payment.
>>28280065Argh, picture.>>28280045Ah, is that it? I see the thanes mood indicator go down when I call for more thanes outside the clan, so I had assumed that was the case.
>>28280088Coincidence then, I just checked. Mine didn't do that.
Treasure getting.I really don't think there's a better choice for leader than the Uroxi.
>>28280164Send him with all thanes. All or nothing. That is how these quests go. Usually I'd send half, but they'd all die except the leader who'd be wounded. But then I just said fuck it one day, sent all. They ALL came back. So yeah, throw everything at it and don't hold back.
>>28280190All right then. 21 thanes go out and...
>>28280200We mulligan. Eh, better than losing any.
>>28280190>>28280200I swear to christ if you're fucking wrong.
>>28280216Clearly sending the Uroxi was a mistake, for the beast promptly shat itself on detecting his approach and fled on its flapping little tentacles.
Fire season. Maybe we should send an emissary to the Ducks asking for an alliance?Or we could send everything we have to raid the Stag Hearths. Wait a second, we EVADED THEIR PATROLS? Holy shit. With odds like these I recommend Destroying Fortifications, which will make future raids much easier.>>28280236This is exactly what happened.
>>28280283Those are awesome odds. Yeah, let's wreck their shit, so we can wreck them more later.
>>28280283I refuse to accept your advice.We retreat.
>>28280283Tear down their forts.
Didn't manage to burn anything, but we did manage to kill their dudes (with no actual loss to ourselves) and plunder them.Do it again?>>28280324Joke's on you, that's not a tactic that barbarians understand.
>>28280358>again?Yeah. Keep wrecking.
A good suggestion, having Vigor will let each farmer do more work. Truesword for farmers, basically.Later.
The dogs want to get theirs too.Taking captives using the Grey Net could earn us some treasure, but it's very dangerous.
>>28280408Odds are maybe good enough to try (we've got the magic to burn), though it's uncertain if we need the loot badly enough to risk the casualties.
>>28280408survival/evade for minimal casualties before wrecking stags again.
>>28280428We've got Orlanth's warrior-blessing too.>>28280437Survival/evade it is, for pure practicality....Once the Stags are done, we evict the Greydogs too.
>>28279577>Everyone else just hit their next age tier, so they look old as hell.Except Barran, I checked.
>>28280463This time the pic didn't even load.Anyway, we're attacking again.
>>28280542Oh, yes! NOW we burn their forts!
>>28280542Hail, Heort-Son! Go a-viking on them, Stag Hearths, who have instigated kinstrife. Go a-viking on them, burn their homesteads, salt their fields, lay open their breasts with the true-swords of Humakt.
Do they not HAVE any fortifications?We'll start plundering in Dark season.Or I could reload and plunder, up to you I suppose.
>>28280590>Or I could reload and plunder, up to you I suppose.They might not have any. Go plunder them in Dark. No mercy, no forgiveness, for we have FEUD with these craven curs.
>>28280590eh, wait for dark. Then we can plunder 'em, or maybe just burn down their fucking steads like they did to us.
>>28280590What plunder? We're out for blood. If they don't have any defenses, we'll start murdering them, and keep murdering them until they're all dead (or maybe they beg us to stop).
Who you gonna call?
>>28280617The Ancestors! Which is to say, Divination. We've for the magic.That said, a legal claim is totally lolworthy, so I'll go with that if someone else wants to.
>>28280641Totally. If Kentvent thinks he can pull it off, I might even forgive him for his backtalk a couple years back.
>>28280617How good is Kentvent's custom?
Unfortunately, since it was sent by the Greydogs we can't bring charges against it. We could try hitting them with a claim.Or just raiding them.
>>28280721... we still owe them for that cattle raid, don't we?
>>28280720Very Good.Wait his COMBAT is higher than his CUSTOM. The actual fuck.>>28280466Oh hey you're right.
>>28280721Gods damn it. Fine, they get raided.
THE STORM TAKES ALL.
HAIL, FIMBUL-VETR, HEORT-CHILDREN!Hearken unto my words, sons of Orlanth, daughters of Vinga! Gird yourself in gloaming mail! Sharpen your axe-blades! Give praise to the gods!FOR TODAY, WE GO A-VIKING! Greydog scum shall fall aplenty, their blood a sacrifice to Maran Gor! The ancestors demand it! Their knavish tricks demand it! Honor demands it!We will splinter their spears! We will shatter their shields! With the true-sword called Death, we will open their hollow breast and let Humakt judge them all!
Up to you lot what tactics we're taking. We might consider Plundering just to get our stockpiles up.>>28280823Yes.
>>28280842Sensible. We're mildly annoyed, not out for blood. Kill a few and take their stuff, then back to dealing with the stags.
>>28280842We outnumber them 180+155 vs 55+117.Pretty badly, that is.I say we go plunder: We need goods, and we have an inherited feud with the Greydogs, not an active, fresh-made feud.
>>28280842I'm all for charge/kill. Give them enough deaths and they won't worry us for a while.
Actually, I realized that "Kill as many as possible" came automatically highlighted. I think we need to do that in order for the event to resolve successfully.It, uh, went better than expected.
Doing this backfired on them pretty spectacularly.
>>28280901No complaints whatsoever. One beatdown, delivered with style.
Now we have to wait two months before we can hit the Stag Hearths again. What do we do in the meantime?
>>28280966Sacrifice to Issaries or Lhankor Mhy.
>>28280966Can you get more Crafters, or, failing that, more population?Either way, we should sacrifice to Chalana Arroy for Healing, so all of our fyrd will be in tiptop pishposh shape when it's time to kick Stag Hearth face.
>>28281006They'll probably recover on their own over earth season. We might consider a feast to boost morale.
Oh whoops, I just realized we don't have Vigor. I'm going to go ahead and grab that.
>>28281006More crafters/goods would be nice, yeah... we need the production to keep our shrines running.
>>28280986I'd like to point out, we've kicked so much ass recently that we've completely turned around the clan's mood.
>>28281103... I completely missed that. Sacrifice to a god then? Orlanth maybe? Do we know The Making of the Storm Tribe yet?
>>28281103Don't think we've done this yet... since the last times we explored our Tula we've gotten nothing, ancestor Divination to confirm there's anything else hidden?
>>28281136Didn't mean to link that there. That was meant for this post, where I grabbed Literacy from Lhankor Mhy. With this and Silvertongue, we're much more capable of dealing with other clans. We can start expecting to get treasures when we go shopping for them, among other things.
It is now Dark season. Who's up for some Orlanthi football?We dodged their patrols again.>>28281149I can confirm that there are at least two events left for tula exploration. At LEAST two.
>>28281186Woah, those are some favourable numbers.Think we can finally burn some of their steads?
>>28281186>>28281210Sure, it's bonfire night. Let's light up the Dark!
Oh hey, it's this guy again. Or his clone.Doesn't matter. Flying wizard heroquester, how do you react?
>>28281237Try shooting him down. Isn't our own quester still fucked up from when she tried single combat?
>>28281247>>28281237Yes, yes she is. Let's be more careful this time.
>>28281237Shoot his ass downNO RESPECT
He shoots... and nothing but air (spirits)
>>28281263A swing and a miss. Ah, well.
But even flying can't protect your house from being set on fire.
>>28281263God damn it.>>28281277>7 steadsIt's a good start, but it's not 10, is it?
>>28281277Someone forgot to tell the Heroquester that fliers are typically not great at holding ground.Serves him right, stupid flying munchkin!
>>28281277>>28281287It's okay, we can come back later.
Cragspider's brood have swarmed the tula. So much for a mild Dark season.By the way, pissing off the trolls is a GREAT way to water the yard/crops.
>>28281302I am so sad we didn't go with trolls. Enshrined Earthblood + Trolls = so many crops you can derp aroundw ith 50% wheat even on poor years and still come out positive.
>>28281302It's also a great way to get DEAD, though. Still, murder these fuckers at least.
That could have gone better. Oh well.
>>28281339I know I attached the picture that time, what the hell.
>>28281313Trolls aren't a great enemy to choose. They're one of the enemy factions that have an apocalypse event.
>>28281350Eh, not terrible. We can live with the losses.
>>28281360I've had more troll games than I can count, and I have recycled/cragspidered all my spare uraldans/ernaldas into magic in those games, too.I have -no- idea what you ahve to do to get a troll apocalypse. Because massacring their annual invasion isn't it.
Hi again! We're here to burn your houses down. Nothing personal, it's just revenge.>>28281360It doesn't proc in the PC version though.
>>28281360>Apocalypse eventthere is much of this game I do not understand
>>28281399Consistently pestering Cragspider usually does it for me.
>>28281419>Burnt three steads taking us to 10 total>No losses>Killed a bunch of their guysWe lost? Yeah, no, I think we won, there.
>>28281414Certain enemy factions are much more powerful than the Orlanthi clans; the trolls, the Lunar Empire, the allies of the Marsh Ducks, etc... Pissing these factions off enough can cause apocalypse events to go off; these are events that you can not avoid and get no choices in which generally lead to a massive loss of life, property, and valuables for your clan or tribe. In SOME cases, you can recover, but most apocalypses lead to no other option but to pack up the clan and accept defeat.
Hah. Hahahahaha. Ahahahahahaha.No.
>>28281419Well, at least nobody died on our side. They lost a handful of weaponthanes and regular people plus 3 steads. If that's us losing, then I'll take it.
>>28281446Add them to team annual tribute, like the last fools who challenged us.
>>28281446Demand annual tribute. Because that way we will have advance warning if they decide to betray us.
>>28281453>>28281456But shall we ask for more than the last guys? 20/year, maybe?
How much are we taking them for?
>>28281446>>28281453>>28281456I'm down with annual tribute
>>28281472If we were still really pissed at them, I'd lean towards 25.But "somewhat merciful" sounds like 20.
>>28281472Something painful... 25 sounds about right
We're going to raid them again.
>>28281517For future reference, ask for 15 cows per year. 13-16 is usually the sweet spot for me.
Huh, things really are looking up.Also, Orstalor's being reasonable again.
>>28281540Accept their proof.
>>28281540Orstalor's probably being reasonable in the hopes that he'll succeed Baranthos when the time comes. Then it'll all come crashing down!But I'd say #4 would be OK. They gotta prove that they're not going to try any funny business, then we'll talk about becoming allies.
What do we ask them to do to prove themselves?
>>2828158050 cows. Then even if they betray us and kill a bunch of folks we get the cows.
Classy gents these guys. And one less feud for us.
>>28281616And an ambivalent clan suddenly gets 50 cows.Everybody wins!Except for the Stag Hearths.
Or not. Son of a BITCH I have never seen this happen before.
>>28281626Yeah, but fuck the Stag Hearths.
>>28281634It probably makes me a bit of a dick to say it, but 50 cows for one Barntar worshipper? Well worth it.But yeah, petition Orlanth, why not.
>>28281634That.That's not supposed to happen! WHEN HAS THAT EVER HAPPENED!?GUYS I'M SCARED DRAGON PASS STILL HAS NEW STUFF
>>28281634>I have never seen this happen before.>>28281672>That's not supposed to happen! WHEN HAS THAT EVER HAPPENED!?Somebody obviously had seen it before >>28281603
>>28281634BRING DOWN THE WRATH OF THE STORMFATHER!
Just to move this along a bit faster I say 14 cows.Augh, this event wiped out our magic store entirely.
>>28281634What the hell?Tattle on them fast.
>>28281697We lost NINE magic? NINE? Freaking NINE!
They've been rewarded as they deserve.
Rolled 1>>28281697Sacrifice their 50 cows. Because fuck them, that's why.
>>28281706We lost one, they lost all.
Fuck those guys, seriously.We're going to run Orlanth for the Bag of Winds.
>>28281706Orlanth's wrath may be appeased, but these bastards just earned themselves an eteral war with us.
>>28281731NO NO NOHEROQUESTS ARE BASED ON WHO IS ON THE RING, HOW MANY SACRIFICES YOU'VE MADE TO THE GOD, WHO IS RUNNING THE QUEST, AND HOW MUCH CLAN MAGIC YOU HAVEWE HAVE TOO LITTLE MAN!
Praise Eurmal. Now we can seize their lands.>>28281704Why hello. Pray tell, where did this come from and where can I find more?
>>28281731>Anmangarni invite the wrath of the gods to kill a guy>We bring him straight back... we... we actually came out ahead on that deal, didn't we?
>>28281744It is the only one of its kind.It is from the Runic Men run, when the Queen of the Praxian Horse Men becomes the Wife of the King of Dragon pass. Her line of dialogue is literally so tsundere it hurts.
>>28281744It came from the old Runic Men run, ran by a proper anon who didn't need a name or trip. You should take heed.None of the fan art spells the guy's name correctly.>>28281759>and now I shall ride you
The Old Owls want some of our cows. I say, fuck the Owls, get in line.>>28281743Ugh, yeah, negative clan magic. I take that back, terrible plan.>>28281759My regret is eternal.
>>28281786The owls? Who the hell are these guys?
First dead thane in a year.>>28281798Neighbors to our southeast.
>>28281798Target practice. A test from the gods to see how we fight without magic. Let's go ruin them.
I had intended to hit the Stags again, but we're not in a position for that to be viable. Barntar could be put back on the ring though.>>28281833Pretty fucking well. I think we hurt more not having our Heroic Combat available.
>>28281865We need a non-injured ring heading into sacred time, yeah.
>>28281865Harran's back and doing his thing.
I'm in awe. The Stag Hearths came to us.
>>28281961Why wouldn't they? We are currently at our weakest.
Not that weak.
I don't know any of these tribes!
I can safely say that almost none of this year went like I thought it would.
>>28281987No, but we lost a couple thanes. Bad times.>>28281999So what, should we raid the brothers just to see how we measure up? Or is that suicidal?
>>28281999Clans. Tribes are something different OP!
>>28282027We've got to wipe out the Stag Hearths as soon as possible. This protracted war is just a drain on our resources.
Something to keep in mind in between wrecking the Stag Hearths, whose land we can now steal from under them.>>28282032Might be worth allying with them.>>28282034My mistake, getting a bit excited.Okay, I think this is it for the night. I'll pick this thread up tomorrow. This time I'll remember to use the Twitter: WatashiwaOnline. Thanks for sticking with me thus far.
>>282820742 in war, 1 in trade I'd think. We should send out at least one or two trade missions while wrecking stag hearths.And yeah, we should start claiming the fuck out of their land. Steal as much as we can, until the Stag Hearths are no more.
>>28285794With maybe 2 more in crops so we can take full advantage of Ernalda Feeds the Tribe boosting grain production.I need a little more than two hours to finish up here, we'll be picking up again soon.
>>28285859That'll leave us with only 1 magic in reserve, that a good idea? We want full war potential, and we should probably milk the trade thing for all it's worth right?
>>28286206Reserve is great and all, but we can always go into negatives. Plus a point in war is a point in every battle, not just one.
>>28286206There are a few ways to get around low reserve. Completing heroquests nets you some magic, and we can raid during Dark season for a bonus.Here's my suggested expenditure for the year. I checked. Baranthos and Leika will on their feet by Fire season so we'll be in fine raiding form.
Someone died.This reminded me that I should really start recycling nobles at Cragspider's Useless Person Recycling Plant.
This should fix the farmer shortfall for the foreseeable future.
>>28287705>Completing heroquests nets you some magicAll heroquest choices also test your clan magic as a significant factor...
Beating your ancestral enemy is also worth a few points of magic.>>28287805There are other factors that go into it, like the god the quester follows, their stats, how well the clan knows the myth, how many points you invested in Quests, how long it's been since the last quest, and the answers you give during the quest.We could probably do Orlanth or Ernalda, but we've got a busy schedule for the year.
>>28287836Send out all our thanes to fight 'em?
>>28287836send out everyone
We're going to prove that you can turn back winter with swords.
House Stark doesn't know shit.
For the first time in a while we've got more Farmers than children. Still though, we might consider calling for more. We can hire four more weaponthanes.Or we could explore the tula. Been over a year.
>>28287963>His face>"Yeah you know I'm the guy for this shit. Don't even bother choosing other people."
>>28287963How about exploring the far north-west?
Nothing. Oh well, at least it's Fire season.>>28287980He's a barbarian Most Interesting Man in the World.
>>28287963explore, there might be broos everywhere
Everyone's back on their feet. Someone have good Viking metal to use as BGM to this?>>28287997You should explore the tula once a year. It lowers the likelihood of certain negative events occurring.
>>28288028>It lowers the likelihood of certain negative events occurring.I... did not know that. We fucking up the stags again? Poor sods.
Ah crap, bit of bad news. See the map? Our territory doesn't border the Stag Hearths. We can't jack their land. Since the Jenestni are paying us tribute, we can't raid them until next year, so we can't get to the Stags for at least two years.On the upside, any steads we burn now will making future raids easier.
>>28288069Here's the territory map.Should have said, since we're a little while out from being able to hit the Stags for good, should we just raid them for stuff?
>>28281277I'd like the record to show, that in all these raids our victi-ah, opponents, always have stronger magic.And it don't do shit for them.
>>28288124Yeah but when they raided us it let them burn several steads.
Surprise! Time for fireworks!
>>28288157Burninate their shit.
Heroic Combat, Very Good Leadership.
>>28288192take risks, if he's so confident.
>>28288192Lead our warriors to victory.
>>28288192>HeroicI'm almost tempted to say insanity.
Didn't get a picture but it didn't work. It's probably why we lost anyone at all.
Going again. Do we want plunder or to burn their houses down?
>>28288275Eh, we're pretty good on the plunder front, I say burn their houses.
>>28288275burn them all
Earth season. Just checked, we can enlist ten more crafters. We'll want to call for more farmers too.
>>28288355then send the call, having enough of both is important
Come and join the winning team, we said.And then this happened. It goes beyond problem child, we might consider a more permanent solution.
>>28288520outlaw, or threaten with outlawry?IMHO, If we send her out as an outlaw, it might make her a martyr.
>>28288520I wish we could do more than one option. 4 > 5 > 3 would be awesome.Try and persuade her first, then threaten her, then if she still makes trouble follow through with the threats.
>>28288520usually she has no support so just threaten her with outlawry
It might, yes.>>28288570I thought this might be one of those chains myself. It wasn't.
Had hoped for more. Way too many ankle-biters in that group.
>>28288633We could try trading for treasures and hope for Orlanth's rattle.
Dark season.Raiding season. Stags again?
>>28288661fuck stags, fuck em up
I don't have a smug enough reaction face to describe what I think about this. I'll just post the screencap and let you share my smugness.
>>28288661>>28288691Yeah, it's time to murder them some more.
>>28288735So smug we should be smugglers.LET'S WASTE UM
>>28288735hahahaha, look at that fucking shit-tier army
>>28288735Let's laugh at them and walk away. Take a single calf just so that they know that we could have taken more.
I actually feel bad about this one. Should we take their stuff or burn their tula to the ground?
>>28288793take their stuff
>>28288793I'm new to this particular tribe. Have the Stag Hearths done anything to warrant steadburning? We don't seem to be hurting for goods, so it'd be a good idea to cripple them so they can't hit us back soon.
>>28288821We didn't start the feuding.There was always raiding since the game's been playing.
>>28288821The Stag hearths raided us when we were at a low ebb, and burned ten of our steads. This is just... revenge.It occurs to me that we owe the Anmangarn a visit, though.
Go for the slaughtering. Kill as many as you can.
Harran's in the middle of it again. The game loves to pick on him. Since he's already been resurrected twice, I don't think tempting the gods is a good idea.>>28288821They burned ten of our steads without provocation or feud.
>>28288821They burned our steads. We should burn theirs, and/or murder all their people.
>>28288849don't be a hero>>28288843we need to start fucking them up as well
>>28288843Nope, this isn't revenge. This is doing what Ender in Ender's Game did.This is making sure they never threaten us again. If somebody starts a fight with us, they had better damn well be prepared to FINISH it.We talk with the guys between our lands and theirs. We trade for land with them, since we're not going to start a fight we don't have too and they are giving us tribute, we conquer all their fucking land, and then we start in on Grey Dogs.
>>28288849Fight bravely, of course. He's pretty good at combat, right?
>>28288907I'll go with this since it's my preference.Hang on, do we even have Humakti?
>>28288849Annihilate. And then take their lands and women.
I suspect we might have ruined them.
>>28288949Is it possible to exterminate another clan outright?
I think the game agrees. Freaking Vingans, what the hell.>>28288961No, but if you hurt them bad enough they'll pack up and move.
>>28288949>>28288961We don't necessarily want to do that.Next month, can we petition our neighboring clan for some of their land so we can connect with the Stag Hearth's and begin claiming their Tula for ours?
>>28288927>Hang on, do we even have Humakti?I don't think we have any nobles, but our weaponthanes count since we have a shrine.
>>28288961If you fuck them up enough, they give up and go somewhere else in Dragon Pass. I forget what happens if you keep attacking their new location, but I think they eventually get eradicated.
>>28288980did one of our Vingans just go full /u/ on us?
>>28288980Respect, but refuse to seek peace.
>>28288980Respect the pact, but refuse peace.
>>28289019more or less, yeah
>>28288980Lesbians aren't enough to forgive the Stag Hearths. If they want mercy, their men must start bending over for us as well.
I've seen the pair break up naturally if left alone; maybe the same will happen here...>>28288981I'm intrigued. How would we go about arranging that? Emissary screen?
Wow, the game really wants to help the Stag Hearths. Pity that the whole "Burned tula" thing means that we won't be satisfied until they've moved next to the Marsh Ducks.
>>28289067dat pic makes me sympathetic everytime.and then I think of the burned steads.
Well, this is bullshit. I've found several pages indicating that our clan can be destroyed, but nothing saying we can destroy other clans in turn.
>>28289067No mercy. They started it. AND WE'LL END IT...and then we'll ruin the Horsespawn...
>>28289098>and then we'll ruin the Horsespawn...I've got bad news for you man.
Funny, that's what they said last time.
>>28289067Oh how cute, a peace talk. Aren't you going try to kill us again, like last time, Stag Hearths? We know what their idea of peace is, and it is unacceptable. The raids will continue!
>>28289067See if they'll offer us 20 a year. We can ignore them awhile for that.
>>28289123>promised that they could beat us offSo they're giving us more incentive to raid them?
This event again?I accidentally saved over the first pic when I got this, thinking that I'd get the refusal loop. We can outlaw the troublemaker now, if you like.>>28289151You need to marry their leader to form a kingdom. Also, the Feathered Horse Queen (their leader's title) sides with the Lunar Empire to conquer your kingdom in ~300 years.
>>28289195Maybe we should arrange for that marriage...
>>28288849>without provocation or feud.Are we absolutely sure of this, though? Are they allies of the Greydogs? That might've been the provocation. Just saying.Not that it matters now, kekekeke
>>28289195Dispute those allegations. We're a strong enough leader, right?
I just noticed Baranthos. Isn't that normally a Humakti portrait?
>>28289195dispute, worked for me before
>>28289221What, and have her being anti-ambassador to our allies as well? Fuck that, toss Rana to the wolves.
>>28289096We are a clan, capable of raising raiding parties. All the things that can destroy us outright are NATIONS, capable of raising ARMIES. Do the math.
I'll be damned, I've never had that actually work.>>28289248Rana is a different event. We'll be seeing her again too.
>>28289262And when we do see Rana again, you know where I'll stand. Bitch got her warning.
>>28289248OK, you got me here.
>>28289262see, toldya it would work
>>28289248Such a Stalinesque method of suppression would not sit well with the freedom oriented Orlanti.
>>28289042I think so? I can't imagine that territory can only be gained by warfare.
Dark 2. No one hurt (though several are sick). Nothing to do but raid for magic. The Stags barely have anything worth taking and we can't steal their land. But the Anmangarn deserve a beating...
>>28289345What did they do again? Didn't they kill one of our leaders?
>>28289345Show us the map?I think that Grey Dogs deserve it more. And are closer?Can we check the ambassador screen? See about purchasing land from our neighbors so we can start taking over those fucks?
>>28289391Yeah, they killed Harran.He got better.
>>28281759>It is the only one of its kind.well, there in non-censored version...
>>28289345I don't think we paid them back enough yet. I know, because you're talking about them as if they still exist.
>>28289420Do we have to marry her? We can't just kill off the Horse Spawn? It's set in stone that we either marry her or stuff?
>>28289391Broke a peace pact, assassinated Harran, hurt Baranthos and Leika.We got fifty cows out of it, resurrected Harran with no loss of stats and Orlanth shattered their ring. Still, it's the principle of the thing.>>28289399Here it is. Orstalor will not be serving as our emissary, Tricksters have their reputations for a reason.Also, we don't want to be doing anything outside the tula during Dark season (except raiding) because there is a significant chance of failure.
>>28289409What are we waiting for? Let's Obliterate them!
>>28289445Damn, so we can't just ask for land? Fuck that.I guess we gotta steal land then ask for peace again. If we do that we let them off the hook for tribute alright? Only fair.
>>28289442It's part of the prophecy to become the King of Dragon Pass. You either marry her, or don't become king.
>>28289465So yeah, don't raid stag hearths, raid the guys next to us and steal their land alright? We need to make a land bridge. Otherwise we're not going to be able to expand like, at all.Luckily, once we take all the land form the Stag Hearths, we can go right into kicking the asses of the Grey Dogs.
>>28289465Gods will take offence if we raid them before they default on the tribute.I say we should raid the Anmangarn. Make them regret their treacherous ways.
And suddenly Vikings!>>28289442Yep. King of Dragon Pass is set in the history of the Rune Quest campaign setting. The kingdom that we're founding is canonically named "Sartar" and came about when the Grazers and the Orlanthi immigrants in Dragon Pass came together.>>28289465We'll get in trouble if we raid them this year. Magically binding oaths and whatnot. We can start the proceedings next year.
>>28289445shit, why not? let him be our emissary. see what happens.
>>28289474Gotcha, so can we marry her AFTER absolutely all but obliterating the horse spawn?And is that set in every game? or did we just get it that way?>>28289486Well problem is then, how do we force them to default on tribute? We -really- need that land bridge, unless we got another neighbor we can kick the asses of to take their land?Also, the gods already punished them once. Do we want to do this again?
>>28289508>We can start the proceedings next year.Didn't they agree to annual cows?
>>28289508Gotcha.Alright, well we don't need to raid them for LONG, just until we get that connection with the Stag Hearths. Because if we don't take their land, the Grey Dogs probably will, and that'll mean bad news bears for us right? Since their Tula will be FUCK HUGE at that point and that's a lot of land to farm and graze and build on.>>28289532We said "HAHAHAHAHAHA! No." to peace.
>>28289547>We said "HAHAHAHAHAHA! No." to peace.I'm talking about the regular tribute we arranged to get from the Jenestni. Am I... wrong?
>>28289574Oh that, I don't know? I think they must have, if they didn't, then we should just do a quick land grab, maybe give them some cows in recompense after?
>>28289519The horse spawn don't have a tula, so there's no way to obliterate them. Just fight them off as they come, and then marry them after fucking the mountain.
Another clan realized that they'd get in trouble if they let us raid the Anmangarn. Ten goods changed their tune.>>28289519The Horse-Spawn don't have a set camp. You can do events in their territory, but nothing that will actually hurt their population. They're not coded for in the same way as the tribes.>>28289519>>28289532The agreements last for two years. After that either party can break the deal.
They were surprised to see us.
>>28289644lets begin with burning their stuff
>>28289672>BurningCan't we use that treasure to capture a bunch of them... then just gratuitously execute them all?
>>28289605So we can do the land grab this upcoming year, Sweet. I just want to make it clear,because we're starting it this time, we take ONLY what we need (we land grab until we got the connection to Stag Heart, then we give them a peace offering with a buncha cows, wyrgild and price for the land.)
>>28289685then the ancestors would get pissed at us
>>28289644We should destroy fortifications>>28289685Bad idea, our ancestors didn't keep slaves, using that thing will piss them off. We keep it so others can't use it against us.
>>28289690To be fair, the Jenestni were feuding with us as well.
>>28289709Yes, but now they're not. We ended it, we stick to our general word. If they're still feuding with us? Then sure. But otherwise we take exactly what we need, then we stop raiding, give them a peace offering of a gratuitous number of cows, and have done with it.
>>28289779We're real monsters now, aren't we? After a rocky couple years we just seem to devastate everyone we come up against.
>>28289779Damn, that's some cold hard numbers on them.Good fucking job.But next time we should burn fortifications.Actually, this might have been a bad idea. Since we're going to be entering a very brief land grabbing war with the Jenestni...
>>28289817Yep. And we're steadily rising up the "Gonna Be Kings" ranks.
>>28289825They should have been expecting us to come and avenge their phoney 'Peace talk' schenanigans.
>>28289817Actually we're just paying them back...
>>28289845Oh, I'm not saying they didn't have it coming. I'm saying we might have been able to delay it a little longer.
Are we a War clan at the moment? We seem to be going on a lot of raids, and I never know when a good time to change clan focus is.
>>28289911nope the grudge must remain fresh.
>>28289928>Are we a War clan at the moment? We seem to be going on a lot of raids, and I never know when a good time to change clan focus is.Nope, balanced.
Sorry about that, game went weird. Clan ring offering the same response on every management page.It's now Storm season. We might want to enshrine Bless Crops or Literacy. Or we can go treasure buying, or exploring. We can't start conquering until next year.
>>28289967Should we switch to war then? We seem to be good on cows and food, I don't know if it affects anything else.
>>28289987how good is literacy?
>>28289987Treasure buying sounds pretty good, and sending a bunch of guys up to Tarsh could be interesting.
>>28289987If this is the year we're going to try and bribe our neighbor's out of a landbridge, we'll need the Literacy bonus I think.
Oh thank god.Your future king. A bit wet behind the ears, but a few sessions of strengthening from Orlanth and Aroka or Elmal Guards the Stead (after) should raise him nicely.>>28290017Not quite as good as Silvertongue, but good.
Treasure shopping part 2.>>28290026Can't buy land, can only take it.
Maran Gor will be pleased this year.
>>28290089send the dogs packing.fucking Orlanthi calling themselves dogs.its a disgrace
>>28290089Shatter them and then trample their homes to dust!
>>28290063Oh, fine, yes, we're TAKING land before we pay people to shut up with their griping about it, but it's still close enough to the same thing as buying.
This is bullshit.
I think they're mad.
>>28290193Dang, we might need to spend a season boosting our fortifications maybe?Also this just raises our priority on fucking over the Greydogs after we get the Stag Hearths.
Minimal losses.>>28290274The only thing left is the Stone Walls. Those protect against land seizures. Our defenses are as good as they're going to get for the threats we're likely to face.
>>28290325We're about to start expanding our territory A LOT dude, land grabs are going to get more likely as time passes on. Let's upgrade them now.
>>28290373Can't manage it with our current resources. Not if we want to keep our shrines.Speaking of, I rebuilt the shrine to Tarard Riel. I don't like getting snuck up on, and Watchfulness is the solution.
And that's when we found out that the Gorinds had a wonderful thing. I'll pay 50 goods for this.
>>28290444>50 goodsI hope it's enough.
And then the game froze.Luckily, I had a save file right before I built the shrine. We bought Eurmal's Shield instead.
>>28290479...Shit, do we have a Trickster?...Do we WANT a Trickster? My experience with them is they're astounding douchebags.
End of year stats for the tribe. Going to have to increase our pastures, the cows aren't in good shape.>>28290524Orstalor is our Trickster. He's the sanest, chillest Trickster ever, gives reasonable advice and everything.
>>28290524We have trickster , but he is basically Gandhi.
>>28290559>>28290568Am I the only guy concerned about that?
Bit of a gamble on this year's omens. I think we can claim that luck though.>>28290612Not at all. We're stuck trying to figure out if he's the world's first Good Trickster, or setting us all up.That's it for today. Thanks for participating, I'll be back tomorrow.
>>28290612>We have trickster , but he is basically Gandhi.Yes.Something tells me he's saving up his tricksterness for when it'll count the most
>>28290612It is a little worrying, but I guess we just have to accept that not everyone's a charicature. Presumably, somewhere, there's even a Uroxi who isn't a drunken thug.
>>28290661We have him too. Elmalandti.
>>28290661you know thats impossible.>>28290645Cattle raids to the max
>>28290733Our clan is heresy tier.I mean next you'll tell me Oneselin is a straight Vingan or Baranthos a disloyal Elmalitebtw crops, herds, war, quests
>>28290733Elmalandti is an old Storm Bull. The most DANGEROUS kind of Storm Bull.
>>28290645We should definitely increase pastures, and then raid the shit out of our neighbors, give them goods (not cows) when we repair. Then we cattle the fuck up, claim land all from the Stag Hearths.
>>28281759Fuckin' Runic Men.... Those were fine days.
