Rolled 28 (1d100)Last thread >>36453622In the last thread some dipshit deleted a 1. Now we are scrambling to figure out how to survive the coming centaur related doom.Long live blackwoods
Rolled 94 (1d100)We might be doomed but I'll roll anyway
Rolled 11 (1d100)>>36518696At least it will be interesting
Rolled 73 (1d100)>>36519128>>36518696What is it with 11 today?
Rolled 28 (1d100)>>36518972>>36519128I wish to use dice, plus all of my personal karma points that only genie knows about to make everything go back to normal, and we forget that these weekend threads ever happened.
>>36520452Good luck with that
Rolled 81 (1d100)>>36520452But all the flag work would be lost.
Hoohoo, somebody dun fucked up again. That's what you fucking get for trying to use madness. Especially when you only have ONE mad motherfucker. There's not even anyone to troubleshoot him in his madness.
>>36524144Yes there is. His friend specifically has madness-alleviating powers
Rolled 39 (1d100)>>36524545Too bad you crit failed.>>36524144Mad has ALWAYS been a very risky proposition.and you CRIT FAILED.>>36520452I haven't noticed anon.Anyway you still have a few hours to figure out a way to save yourselves. I got some running round to do.But yeah a DELETED CRIT FAILED MAD action...And you thought the plain crit fails were bad...without MAD attached much less without the deletion penalty.
>>36526390At this point were fucked. I'm just waiting to see how we die
Rolled 34 (1d100)>>36526390I will not give up. I just really don't know what's coming. So I assume abominations of animal and humans. I guess we are agreed still on the 4 heroes going all in to stop it.>Murphy, Jacklin, Red queen, Popo.>>36526481We made it thru the zombies and we don't have as messed up of a base like Sir Richard. We have a chance, Seeing that we didn't just up and die, and that's all any civ can hope for. Granted it will never easy. Probably suck worst that Vault 101 and HAX combined. ... Just if we ever want to make it to make a big civ we will need to fight thought this shit. Way to many civs die because we didn't have what it takes, but we keep getting better. HAX and the Jungle Gods civ are a show of that.
>>36526936But it was a madness roll about making centaurs. A nat 1 got deleted. That's like a crit fail squared! My only hope is that the some of the centaurs that kill us have nice tits.
>>36524545See, that's one thing but what I'm talking about is an exchange between one MAD and another MAD. The girlfriend has madness-controlling powers, but she still can't understand the motherfucker's 'logic' like another MAD could.Don't you remember the banter between all the maddies in the Gearheads? They've got some sort of internal consistency even if we can't see it.
>>36527031So like pic related?
Rolled 74 (1d100)>>36527031Yeah that sounds about right and probably given the chance I bet rolls like that are how fall weapons are made. Hehehe ... We shall win by sexy adventurers. Maybe we can pop the hidden hero as well to help with their mix of buff rolls. I hope the hell fires will be strong when their time comes.
Rolled 57 (1d100)>>36527031You really think I would give you that small amount of hope anon?>>36527187Due to crit failure SQUARED with MAD heroic bonus...pretty much. Seriously though the event that will occur will actually compare to a Post Fall revelation AND Pre Fall shenanigans.>Substance ReffirrApparently according to captcha this is somehow involved.
Rolled 54 (1d100)>>36527393If your gonna do heroic sacrifice best be figuring out your heroes.
Rolled 91 (1d100)>>36527588We already know who we are sacrificing >Murphy, Jacklin, Red queen, Popo.
>>36527393Come on! It would be funnier in hindsight if they had amazing centaur tits! Those things would bounce so much as they galloped around that if there bounce in sync it could level the entirety of the bace and half the forest from the vibrations!
>>36527784There's some precedent for you telling us how many we need to sacrifice to survive though, so if you'd like to provide that information it'd be nice.Just a ballpark.
>>36527833I... I don't know how to feel about that...
>>36527833>death by centaur tit vibrations.What is wrong with my life when this is not there first time I have said those words?
Rolled 49 (1d100)>>36527784Vote
Rolled 62 (1d100)>>36527784Well if we don't make it out of this I want to let everyone know I love you guys, like family.
Rolled 69 (1d100)>>36527784For black wood
Rolled 72 (1d100)>>36527784For the Republic
>>36527784Weren't we also supposed to execute the council too?All about the President blaming the "new path" for all this trouble, convincing the people to return to the old ways and get back to our roots
>>36529307That didn't get enough support last thread. You could give it a try though.'Course, that means that we suddenly have 600 very pissed off, very badass reds in our base who feel they've just been betrayed.
>>36529307I'm not backing that and If we did then the AI would turn on us. Plus that's really messed up.
>>36529349It's what everyone voted on last thread. . .Anyway, you better figure out on another scapegoat, because even if we do survive this without something, or someone, to blame the morale shock and our people will tear this civ apart anyway
>>36529349The Reds are probably going to leave us anyway. Nothing lost there.>>36529361In all honesty I would have sacrificed the AI as well.This isn't really about saving the Blackwoods, we're just asking for more borrowed time for our dead and doomed civ to do something cool or amazing before we go.Good or evil, whatever we do, let's do it big and something we can remember by before we're all wormfood.
>>36529421I think heroes are the only ones that can be sacrificed. It was the plan of Maury and their dream of a magical realm. Thankfully the madness of Murphy and friends put a stop to Maury's plans.>>36529508Maybe we will have to, but we have little to go on and to many heroes on int he mix will probably do more harm then good.Maybe for you. For me this civ has a chance to keep going. But every time shit goes wrong some people give up and that ends the civ. I want to do cool things as well, but nothing amazing comes from fire works alone. We need to push through the muck and then we can a civ the shines as bring as the old. Just don't give up it hurts morale and makes it hard to form good plans. We are a team in this and we are as strong as the weakest link.
I missed these shenanigans you're all referring to, but if I'm going to die being trampled under the hooves of dangerously sexy centaurs, I want to know that my heros are going to ride off into the sunset with them and hopefully show up in a later adventure.Imagine we're borg cops... things look bleak... zombies on all sidesSuddenlyMurphey rides in on a well-endowed centaur and draws them off with a shit cannon
Rolled 50 (1d100)>>36527588>Genie gets back from errands in a bad mood>PerfectExactly what I need to be feeling for this.>>36529349SHH.Spoil sport.>>36529361heheh.>>36529800The fact that such a thing occurring wouldn't surprise me scares me....There is something seriously wrong with my setting when that can happen yet stay gritty.
Rolled 47 (1d100)>>36527784Anything you wish to add onto that hm?
>>36530922If you want an action other than stop the mess that is about to be made/ sac to cancel a 1 roll. We will need more to go on.
Rolled 99 (1d100)>>36530922I am praying for intercession by the jungle gods.
Rolled 5 (1d100)>>36530922Alright according to consensus of last thread.You wish to 'revive' republic and sacrifice certain agreed upon heroes which were reconfirmed this thread. Which had a 1 attached last thread.The fact that such a thing wont really be noticeable in comparison to everything else REALLY says something.Like goddamn.
>>36531412arg, so close.
Rolled 3 (1d100)>>36531412If you'd've critted, that would've been quite the entertaining sequence of events for Genie to write.
Rolled 52 (1d100)>>36531443... so if were dead let's get this over with. Only thing I agreed to was the heroes sacrificing. The revival is/was a bad move.
>>36531412>>36531471>>36531540The Jungle gods would be displeased at such petty prayersPrayer alone offends them. If you wish to truly revere them, show your faith in an offering of blood.

>>36532858>Hey guys, I don't kill civs based on dice alone!
Rolled 93 (1d100)>>36532858GAME OVER!...holy shit did that become one hell of game ending, civilization toppling cluster fuck, and yes that was in fact just a taste of what the Fall was like...welp time for creation thread and don't forget to fucking archive all these hear threads.
Hah. Giving them until Thread 8 WAS far too generous.
Rolled 90 (1d100)>>36532909Actually it was the voted for plans that combined with dice killed it.The dice alone WEREN'T gonna do that. They NEVER do as i see to that.
>>36532936>>36532909This is actually better really.True a better plan wouldn't have killed us outright, but we were doomed all the same. At least we ended this quickly with less pain and suffering for all.There was no saving this civ, the least we can do is a quick and clean death, than a long drawn out death.
>>36532931Right?SO glad I did not invest in this. I had a hunch from the start this wouldn't last.
>>36529800I have a new fantasy
Rolled 56 (1d100)>>36533007Anon how many times do I have to say this?Dice don't KILL civs SOLELY by themselves. No matter how hard they try.BAD decisions DO!>>36533032Hey now there was always a chance...Truth be told unlike all you disenfranchised anons I never had hope in any civ from the very beginning.I just have fun seeing how long you last and whether you decide to quit while your ahead or not.Gonna get in a similar mindset anon.Funner that way.anyway new thread: >>36533029As usual will answer all questions from this point on in regards to setting truthfully. For the noobies out there whenever a civ dies I will spend time answer questions in regards to the setting WITHOUT holding anything back.just be aware I wont offer any more then strictly required so pick your questions carefully.
>>36533145Were there other Blackwoods remnants in the area that we could've tried to unite?
>>36533145How did the symbiosis work? And where bees ever really a possibility?
I hate that two civs died now because of the 1 roll being deleted. Please say something about that Genie, for the new people. I liked the fantasy civ and where this one was going.>>36533145Can you give info on how dice and hero abilities work for the system in more detail?
>>36533145That's like saying "Stabbing someone in both kidneys won't kill a man, no matter how good it is"Well, yeah, it won't. But a bullet to the head seems preferable than bleeding to death in that situation.Nobody would have been prepared for the losses encountered from this, and we would have never been able to recover before the next catastrophe ended us.So between the only options of death now or death later, now was better.
>>36533285Not like it matters.One day, there will be a new person, somehow, somewhere. And they will inevitably delete their nat1 thinking they will get away with it.That will be the veritable nail in the coffin that it should be time to consider what the next civ will be.
>>36533317I haven't lost hope that people can change. Each and every time it will suck. But all I hope is it's not some a-hole doing to mess with people.
>>36533317The basic laws should be in the op of each thread
Rolled 35 (1d100)>>36533223Yes.>>36533284Everything is possible.As for how...it had to do with lifeform complexity and certain bindings.>>36533285Ah forgot I could of done a fantasy civ...really need to get that done again.Ah well if the civ starter dies I'll do something else.
>>36533618There's also pirates, but later. So no info on the dice and how they work with hero abilities then? I would even be fine if you told me how similar they are with the Twisted Realms game.
Rolled 5 (1d100)>>36533750Hero abilities are...well basically a special affect.Their traits and passives are the only things that directly effect dice.
>>36533926Okay, thank you for the info.Now for civ questions. If I were to fluff a think tank that went under from a outbreak from Infested zombie testing. Would there be a chance it could end up with a few smart zombie officers or hero to help lead the zombies?
Rolled 26 (1d100)>>36534131...if you did they wouldn't be friendly without the proper tech specialty.even then a hero would be a toughie.
>>36534209Dam. I guess I could focus on the horde part and less on improving int. I would just hate to be blocked from one day getting tactics or are the zombies capable of that much?
Rolled 40 (1d100)>>36534289zombies are...REALLY stupid. Like ungodly so.So stupid in fact that they their 'morale' can't even be broken unlike ghouls(who are REALLY resistant)Now think about it...There is a reason why 'smart' zombies are so rare.Both for the sake of balance and sense.IF zombies didn't have a 'brain' problem their numbers, virility, AND immunity to morale problems would cause MASSIVE imbalance even if upkeep is increased even.Their brain drain combined with high upkeep makes it balanced is what I am saying.If I removed such a limitation the players would all cry like little bitches for good reason.by the way they are sorta meant/designed as a NPC faction/force. Even so I make sure there are checks and balances for the sake of keeping it all 'even'.
Rolled 87 (1d100)>>36534424Even so I kept them off a the player ticket for good reason.Mostly due to the following reasons.1 being broken.2 being hard to play.As is the players have a hard time just handling the basic options. If they can't play those ones correctly they wont stand a chance with the NPC locked ahem the 'advanced' ones.
>>36534424Fair.>>36534545Yeah, that was the problem I was trying to work around. I believe we would be kill if give the chance to play zombies by that reason. I guess I will forget about it for now and maybe work on a ghoul civ or something else. I did like the space game and kind of hope to go back to it.
Rolled 34 (1d100)>>36534640Ghoul civ is also NPCed.Mostly due to their high keep with their similar toughness to mutants base but without the mutating. Not to mention depending upon their breed their recruitment rates can be awful.They are tricksy and I am STILL figuring them out now that zombies are mostly finished.I kept them locked up as they are hard to play.>>36534545'broken' which can both mean over powered or being shit.
>>36534751Dam ... How about using magical cultist for controlling undead? Limited, but they will be using the zombies as shock troops and the like.
>>36534816That would work as it would be considered your 'lore' option would be something like necromancy if you wish to animate.Zombie playing too would work as a think tank but you would have to fluff it as well your 'tech specialty' being 'zombie control or something.
>>36535036Cool. Well I'm done with questions for now and thanks again.
