My people, to me! It is again the sacred time, and again we tell the history of our people in keep with tradition. The last two years have been busy for the clan. We completed the heroquest Elmal Guards the Stead, weakening the forces of Chaos across the land, as well as Lhankor Mhy Finds the Truth, completing all seven heroquests as required by prophecy. We spun off our troublemakers into a clan of their own, found that we had people in thrall to the Horse-Spawn, and failed miserably in getting them back.
Clan stats round up. Our sheep and cows are down, yet still overcrowded. I think it's the horses, but I'm going to lead off the year by increasing the size of our pastures by a lot anyway.We can use horses for diplomacy this year.Also, that's 200+ goods made this year. Nice.
Make sure we sacrifice to Urox this year.
Jarstakos was an elf hater? None of his quotes ever reflected that. Luckily we have Onelisin to provide knife-ear hating commentary going forward.
I never got around to it last thread, but here's the clan map. Notice the Six Brothers forever alone up there. They deserve it, the malcontents.
Here we are increasing pastures for the umpteenth time. Our 200+ horses may or may not be the problem, but I'd prefer to be below 120 .
>>28966661Can you add clans to your tribe even after you make a tribe?or are the ducks forever out of reach
>>28966688Whats the point of wildlands anyways?Do the elves get super butt hurt or something
We're actually fine, we just have way too much land.I don't think we need more than 12 hunters. We can take care of that later.Give me actions for the second half of Sea season. Explore/trade/diplomacy/sacrifice is a good plan if you're unsure of what to recommend. Remember that we need to make an offering to Urox this year.
>>28966717Wild lands are for hunting.
>>28966745Give shit to the ducksand more treasure hoarding
>>28966745>>28966746>>28966765Is there anyway to make hunting not useless? One food per hunter is only enough to sustain that hunter, he might as well live on his own.
No idea if the ducks accept horses, let's try anyway.>>28966696Clans (ducks included) petition for joining in random events. That's not something you have control over. At other times, you can offer to sponsor clans for tribe membership, but that is also event based.>>28966717>>28966746Wildlands are unused lands that you own. There's not much point to them, but you do get small amounts of food from your pigs and from hunting; the entire point is that the land is unused.
I'll be damned. They probably used them for glue, but still cool.>>28966909Not really. The Odaylan blessing event, having an Odaylan on the ring, putting points into Hunting and the Sureshot ritual still fail to make hunting produce anywhere near as much food as planting.It's so bad that the iOS version removed Hunting and Children entirely.
Speaking of wildlands, there's a giant pig in ours. What do we do about it?
>>28967024Hunt it down.
Two men down? Population didn't drop, so they're only hurt.
Sure enough, they're back on their feet.Fire season now. Give me two actions. I think we're about to get some bad news about Harvar since he's been away for a while.
>>28967094>>28967024An event like this seems like a good reason to have hunters, since they would be more suited to killing wild animals than weaponthanes would. I bet they're pretty pissed off about having to give their lives for carls' work.
>>28967138get more people to join our clan since our farmers a stretchedpretty soon theyll get upitty about it
>>28967159Doesn't seem like it. In fact, it's a chance for them to test their strength on a worthy enemy.
Einarth move over, there's a new prophet in town.
These guys need a hobby.
Why is the game still picking on our Barntar worshiper?Renowned Combat, Very Good Magic.
>>28967276Fight bravely, I would be less torn up over losing him than losing the battle.
Clan Fimbulvetr: Our farmers>your thanes.
The blood of two of ours joins the blood of the Anmangarn in watering our fields.
I'm going to cut down our hunters. That's 40 more farmers we'll have going forward.
Not bad at all.I think morale is down (to where it was previously) because we offered sheep in addition to land.
Enjoy being horse-less spawn.
>>28967416>100 new peopleNicealso the farmers can go fuck themselves
Killer-Colymar (AWESOME NAME) of the Narri wants to call in a favor to help raid the Apple clan.Delightfully, they're both members of the Colymar tribe. Also, Orstalor: Best Trickster, I laughed hard.>>28967459The number scales up over time based on the size of your wildlands. I've never touched the slider except to lower the value.
>>28967509Do we have a peace treaty with the apples?If not lets go fuck em up
>>28967509Does the mention of obligations mean this would be repaying a favour? If so, then definitely do it, if not, do it anyway, but while feeling less sure about it.
>>28967509Also, children of hunters become hunters when they become adults.
According to the map here >>28966661 we're neutral towards both.It's also Fire season and we're repaying a favor. There was no reason not to do this.>>28967588...The KoDP tracks whose children come of age when? This freaking game.
>>28967623I'm 87% sure this is the case. At least, I remember reading it somewhere, and my source could be hella wrong.
Welcome to Earth season. This is a good time for trading and exploring, or sacrificing to Urox and running a heroquest.
Shit, we're doing good. We're at max trade routes, correct?
>>28967678Seems like our farmers are getting antsy again
>>28967678I think we should explore, since we can't explore in dark, so we should save that for sacrificing. The mountains beyond the Six Brothers tula looks interesting.
Enothea takes people and heads off to see what's on the other side of those mountains.>>28967663King of Dragon Pass is one of the few games left where rumors--true or not--can start and spread around unchecked. I love that.
>>28967752The game is just so arcane and mystifying. Much like Glorantha, though I dunno how intentional that was.
>>28967752That's probably because of how much is calculated off screen. People could say anything, and it could be true, because it's hard to verify things in this game.
>>28967701I think so. I just checked, and no one's suggesting forging more trade routes.Also, I'm pretty sure that no other clan has more of anything than we do, except they have to for fluff reasons.Still need another action for Earth season. We could run Humakt, that passively boosts your warriors for two years, regardless of what boon you request.>>28967790>>28967791Right. It's interesting to speculate about how it all fits together.
>>28967848Our warriors seem pretty bad-ass as they are. What heroquests do we know?
>>28967891All of them except Uralda and Chalana Arroy. Worse luck, we don't have an Arroyan to perform the latter.
>>28967920I'd say have Leika sacrifice to Uralda for mysteries in hopes of getting that heroquest. We can sacrifice to Urox later.
Milk Blessing is... something. I guess if we really started panicking about the cows we could switch over for a bit.
>>28968032The carls dont like the milk blessing because of the cows.
This is something else. The Fear Spirits are a one use item, sadly.>>28968044That sounds entirely typical, so I'm not sure if you're pulling my leg.
>>28967967Leika's no Elusu, she might not be able to survive it. We'd need a replacement lined up, and a good benefit to get from the quest since they're all cow related.
We're so awesome our ancestors have come back from the dead to tell us we're awesome. Time to pick a prize!The morale boost will benefit the overall mood, not the farmers'. The wisdom by contrast gives our nobles a universal (small) stat boost.
>>28968153... More wisdom?Actually, what are we lacking right now?
>>28968153I'll take wisdom, so the lagging nobles catch up, and the young'uns are better prepared to replace the elders.
Thanks greybeards!>>28968186>lacking...Complete dominion of Dragon Pass?
>>28967366FINALLY we beat these assholes on our own turf.
It's now Dark season. Who's on the shit-list? Greydogs are off of for now, they're still paying.
>>28968295Picture of the shit list. You can also refer to the map here >>28966661.
>>28968332Anmangarni has raided us twice. So payback?
Honestly, they deserve it more than anyone.
Rostakos leads strong, then gets hurt.He's got Excellent Combat and Magic, and Good Leadership.
>>28968439He's gonna be a goner shortly anyway, isn't he? Have him stand his ground and go out like a man.
>>28968439Rally, counter-charge, disregard wounds, acquire kill-count.
Death and glory.>>28968583What board is that one from?
>>28968583I have a feeling the mods know how to fix the image swap glitch and just don't because of awesome results like this.
>>28968611Found it on /co/>>57146097
>>28968611>>28968624>>28968632Aww man, it didn't show up for me. What was it?
>>28968661Kirsten Stewart. I don't think I need to explain her expression.
Results. Not... terrible. Very much in our favor.>>28968632Heh. And foolz shows an entirely different image for his.Sorry, shouldn't have gone looking that up.
>>28968781[s]Jesus god[/s] Sweet Orlanth, we sorta butchered them.Hooray for more cows and silver, though.
What's going on here.>>28968781We lost a weaponthane? Those bastards.
>>28968861How can a stone altar even cry. Was the altar shaped like a person or something?
>>28968861I guess we need more weaponthanes?
>>28968889>Questioning Godplane LogicSacrifice to Urox in this second half of Dark Season, then see if we can't pull off one of Orlanth's hero quests in Storm Season.
I've never seen so FEW trolls in an attack.
>>28968936Man, those are some Year 1 numbers.
And I said goddamn.
>>28968965we practically killed or wounded every single one of them
Berserker is entertaining. More people hurt on both sides, and there are combat events that use it too.
One of our children ran off to the Narri for training. They brought her back, and now we have to decide what to do with her.
>>28968861I think we should do the storm tribe quest just because of the nature of that vision.
>>28969094Think we better be appreciative to this guy.
>>28969094If only she'd actually been around this season, she would have seen some real warriors fight.Either owe him a favor, or convince him we're badass. I'd think that second one should be easier, given our track record as of late.
On the one hand, we just dispelled the favor we owed them.On the other hand, we owe them again.Interestingly, gifts sometimes can convince people to release favor obligations.>>28969138Enent is the child, and we would convince her that we make great warriors. Harmast is the dude from the clan she ran to.
No, Orstalor, you can't go and try to pay off the favor, you'd get drunk and run off again. Wait. Is that an Issarian? At last! Terrible stats, but who cares?We sent Randella and 21 horses to the Narri.
And it worked. Praise Eurmal.
And now the Stag Hearths are back.
Eurmal gives, and Eurmal tries to take. Randella has Very Good Combat.
>>28969464Eh, considering the last guy with Excellent Combat bit the dust... throw missiles, I reckon.
>>28969464Calling down for Missiles has never failed me in this situation.
A hail of thrown objects keeps the Stag Hearths in the ditch where they belong.
>captured 11 horsesWe'll never be rid of the parasites at this rate.>Derik the Praxian Hater distinguished himselfOh hey, Derik's all grown up.
>>28969632>over 200 dead or wounded on their side>2 wounded on our sideIts like death forgot we die or something
Time for questing. Anyone have a preference? I saw one vote for Making of the Storm Tribe. You've got five minutes to say whether you approve or disapprove.
>>28969675Approve, and ask for power to our nobles.Is there a reason we're not asking for help from those who owe us / our allies?
Whoops, wrong Orlanth quest highlighted, these are the effects available to The Making of the Storm Tribe. The previous is Orlanth and Aroka.>>28969726We don't need it, and if you use it you start owing favors. Since we don't need it, it winds up costing us down the road.
Here are the options open to us in The Making of the Storm Tribe. Pick one.
>>28969886Kingmakers is the one that boosts our nobles, correct?If not that, then tribal regalia.
Regalia'd.>>28969920Kingmakers improves our ability to swing the voting during kingly elections. With Elusu, we hopefully won't have to worry about that for a long time.
And that's the first year.Surprised that we only have three fewer horses than we did, considering how many we gave away.
Orlanthi cats are awesome.
Kentvent gets his Heroic Customs rating at the same time he gets his final age portrait. Sup Gandalf?
Sea season. Two actions, keeping in mind we haven't explored in a while, and we want the last two heroquests apparently.And there's also a certain rattle...
>>28970223How can we get said rattle?
>>28970223I was thinkingExploreHeroquest
>>28970223Couldn't we send an emissary to an ally or someone who owes us a favor to get the details of a heroquest from them?
Been a while since we explored the tula. Nothing came of it, sadly.>>28970256Treasure trading. Interested?>>28970290We could, but there's no guarantee we'll get a new heroquest.
Ice demons invade the tula. What do we do?
>>28970350Put blades to the demons!Q
>>28970350Put the pointy ends of our swords into their faces
Ice demon dog pile?
>>28970445Why the fuck not.
>>28970475Recruitment time for weaponthanes. We've lost 4 over the last year?
>>28970475Better replace those losses before going into Fire season. Orlanth knows we have the horses for it.
Sea 2. We had votes for heroquesting and quest learning.If we want to learn a quest, do we send a party to another clan, or sacrifice?
God what i wouldnt give for a modern version of this
>>28970548sacrificealso weapon thanes
>>28970548I think renewing our forces is more important than getting those myths. We can trade or sacrifice for those come Earth season.
>>28970502>>28970505Whoops, didn't catch these. Want to do this now or wait until Earth season?>>28970557iOS is it. Works on iPad, so you can get a decent screen size too.
>>28970616Is it a full remake or just and updated port
>>28970337Go for it, the Rattle's awesome IIRC.
Four new thanes.
>>28970647Mostly the same game, but with some tweaks.
Fire season. Are we going treasure trading or myth learning?
>>28970737First one, then the other?
>>28970737>mfw for the first time children are about half of the clan>next time we condoms and anticonceptional pills or baby raiding parties
>>28970811Wasn't there are a time when 1000 kids became adults at the same time?
We'll learn some myths first.>>28970647Bit of both. The game is made to work on the touch interface and streamlined in the best way, and there's some new content.>>28970836We've never had more than 600 at once, much less had that many become adults. 100+ last thread happened though, which is an incredible number.
Those utter quackers, after all we've done for them.
>>28970912Those sons of bitches. If it wasn't for that one apocalypse event...
This is the gamble you run when you ask others for quest info.
>>28970931I told you broi told you to sacrifice
Well this is certainly familiar. Want another spirit treasure?
>>28970912Good thing it wasn't this duck.
>>28970964We can try sacrificing.
I hate shamans so much.
>>28971089it seems that they have an awful erectile dysfunction.
>>28971089Wish we could take shamans as our ancestral enemies.
Time to trade treasures.
Gods above I hate these guys so much. We could spend horses to improve their feelings about us so that they attack us less.
Oh wow, we won without slaughtering a third of them.
Here we are in Earth season again. I'm going to go ahead and get us some more thanes.
And then we bought Orlanth's Rattle.
>>28971269I see the number of hunters creeping up again. Is there any problem with reducing the number to 0? Will a bunch of creepy crawlies gather in our wildlands and slaughter us?
Dammit, forgot pic.
Not enough farmers again? What, did a third of them just die?>>28971269The game naturally moves people to become hunters, based on the size of your Wildlands. There's always going to be some, unfortunately.
>>28971322Hunters help in detecting raids. And also in skirmishing. I don't think they have much utility, otherwise.
>>28971369Guess it's time to recruit new farmers then
How surprising. The Narri really like us; problem is we've hit the ally ceiling. Even one more and we'll start seeing problems.After this event I'll be taking a short break.>>28971374They also provide small amounts of food and keep undead down, and when you need to track stolen items/missing people/horrible monsters you go to them.
>>28971439That's easy then, let him down gently.
>>28971369Sometimes "not enough farmers" really means "too much cropland"
Neat.Back in a bit.>>28971481Oh, we've got that too. Damn cows needed more space. Probably could shrink the planting zones though.
>>28971439What's the difference between 2 and 5? Is 5 just ruder?
>>28971495How about obliterating all of the Anmansdfansjdgngagnasdkfansfdsi? Would that be a practical mission for the next couple of years?
>>28971546Well, we do seem to be able to actually WIN against the fuckers now...
That took longer than expected. Like as not I'll be ending early for a social engagement. If that happens we'll start anew tomorrow.For the second half of Earth season we are calling for more farmers again.>>28971515Yeah, and depending on a few factors using that option might piss off the clan or make them happy.>>28971546Practical? Not really. We probably could force them to relocate again if we hit them all season every season.
>>28972979I'd be fine with just hitting them until they realize fighting back is a dumb idea.
Guess who's back? Rangor's back.>>28973002Sad as it is to say, they never learn. They just wait until the AI decides to hand them enough people to attack. Or not, I've seen pictures of invaders attacking with no thanes and fewer than 20 units.
>>28973038What did we decide to do last time? I think we should get him to give up, there's no permanent solution. I guess we could try getting him temporary wives forever until he dies... actually let's try that, maybe one will stick eventually.
Come to think of it, we did decide to give it to him straight the next time he approached us. Sorry Rangor, next time don't be born ugly.
>>28973038try magic this time?
>>28973181The magic wears off and the woman bolts faster than one who knew what she was in for would.
>>28973199There's a pretty cool chain of events that occur if he manages to get a solid marriage, though.It's a pity that Rangdor wasn't so lucky this time around.
It's now Dark season. Do we have anyone we really, really want to hit? Anmangarn, right?>>28973230That's not Rangor you're thinking of, I believe. We can send some explorers over in the Praxian direction if you want to try to set that one off though.
>>28973272Anmangarn sounds about right.It'd be pretty nice to see the Prax events too.
I suppose we can't always sneak past their patrols.
Kentvent gets an event. Renowned Combat, Very Good Magic.
>>28973520Charge that fucker or throw first.
>>28973520Even our lawyer has renowned combat? I think he should charge in to fight, but I don't know this event so well, so I don't know which is best.
Kentvent was nearly skewered but managed to escape unharmed. Unfortunately, I saved over the event resolution. D'oh!Enormous amounts of loot there.
And now we enter the time of OUR legends.Saraska Bright-Eyes comes to our clan to ask our help in forming her kingdom. What do we tell her?Orstalor's the only neutral voice on the ring. Everyone else is positively inclined. Which I don't believe I've seen before.
>>28973794>An immortal trollSounds like a dick
>>28973794KILL HER. THERE CAN ONLY BE ELUSU.Since that option appears to be hidden, conduct a divination, after which I'm sure the ancestors will instruct us to kill her.
>>28973794DIVINE THAT SHIT!Although I'm pretty sure the only good option here is to refuse her.
Ancestors don't care for her.What do we do? Same options as up here. >>28973794
>>28973954Refuse her politely.
Yes, I imagine we will be seeing the truth of things soon enough, Saraska.
People are people. With the Rattle and the Kero Fin Shrine, they'll be productive adults soon enough.
The Old Owls are calling in a favor, asking for magic. What do we tell them? We CAN offer them goods instead of magic, we're good for that.
>>28974231Unless the amount we give is proportionate to our stocks, we should give more than the customary amount.
I actually wasn't sure how much the customary amount was. Looks like it's three.
I'm pissed that Archive didn't save Runic Men pictures. Can't understand shit from thumbnails. 4Chan's a fucking picture board, why the fuck wouldn't it save pictures
Dark 2. Let's have another action. Sacrifice for heroquest?
>>28974533Sure. How many heroquests do we have left to do?
>>28974533A while ago we lost some explorers. Do we have the pathfinder blessing to protect them? If so, are there any other blessings we need to learn?
We've got Uralda now. >>28974625Two. Uralda and Chalana Arroy. We don't have an Arroyan, so I went with Uralda.>>28974653We do know Pathfinder, but we've chosen to enshrine Fyrdwomen. I think we can get some treasures that protect people, but I'm not sure where.
That didn't take long. Saraska is back, this time as a sockpuppet for the Colymar tribe. What do we do?
>>28974773kill that fuckin bitch before she fuck up our stability as a tribe
>>28974773Elusu for King in the North!
>>28974815or just 4
>>28974773#5.No right at all.
>>28974773Actually, #1 might be a good way to weaken the Colymar and the false prophet while maintaining good relations with everyone else.
We politic-blocked her.
>>28974773We need to start planning her death, maybe we can host her wedding, but the musicians we hired are secretly assassins. Until then, we'll forbid her.
>>28974910Get them to play some "Rains of Greyhound Tula"
Storm season. Give me an action, we'll do Huamkt at the end of the year.
>>28975033Seek weaponthanes, trade cattle and stuff for treasures. We're still suffering from overcrowding, aren't we?
Treasure buying now.>>28975154Not anymore. The cows have enough space.
Jenestni invade without significant forces. Let's sweep them out.
Onelisin event. Heroic Combat, Excellent Leadership.
>>28975284#1.Onelisin shall inspire her comrades by killing everything.
Onelisin inspires terror in our enemies.
Now there's an awesome casualty list. I bet the one injured guy stubbed his toe on the dropped weapons.
For Storm 2 I'm running Humakt. There's still some treasures left.
Here's the reward list. Pick between the helmet and the death rune.
>>28975493Depends what they do.
>>28975553One protects against undead, one decreases the amount you need to sacrifice successfully.
>>28975647Death rune i guess
Death Rune it is.
We bought Heort's Stone for 55 goods. I think we're getting close to acquiring all of the trade treasures.
What's going on with the trolls? This is a tiny force for them.
>>28975788Maybe that one noble we sent to their mother gave her indigestion.
>>28975788Maybe we killed too much of them and this is all they can afford to send.
And they're mostly dead. Wow.
>>28975808could it be that something else is fucking with the trolls?
And we end the year on a high point, except for the sheep being OVERCROWDED AGAIN.Thanks for playing all, hope you had a good time.>>28975828Could be! Another clan heroquested and dealt a blow to darkness, or something.
>>28975867>And we end the year on a high point, except for the sheep being OVERCROWDED AGAIN.Next year, the mutton overflows the tables.
>>28975808Man, Elusu grew up to be a handsome bugger.>>28975867Can we just clear some more forests already? What's the point in not doing so when we have so much friggin' land?
>>28975867With all these sheep we can sacrifice to the god of disease!This is a horrible idea. Never EVER do this
>>28975920Nurgle needs love too, you know.
>>28975920Why is that even an option, jesus.What are the blessings you can get from Malia, and what do they do, anyway?
>>28976015About what one would expect from a god of diseases.Which is to say mostly diseases.
>>28976015Malia either sends plagues at youor she lets you end plagues at other peopleother clans REALLY dont like it when someone prays to her
>>28976071What a bitch.
