>>36960815Build a school.
>>36960831>Requires Philosophical Teachings
>>36960815See if one of our nature sages will give the tube a go.
>>36960815look for caves or tunnels and search for gems and metals
>>36960854they've already tried>>36960895we're currently researching boats
>>36960815Can we upgrade the temple with Vulcanite? The whole thing.
>>36961025That was a fire sage, than you very much.
>>36960854the nature ones are busy>>36961035now why would you want to do that, waste of metals
>>36961045saw that you wrote nature in front of sages after i posted, they are busy tho
>>36960815we should search for new metals, i want gold for the temple
>>36960815Build a forum.
>>36960839>Philosophical Teachingsthis should be next on our research list
>>36960815I just realized.Blue metal found around volcanos is usually called bauxite.Bauxite is alluminum ore.
>>36961249does bauxite mixed with iron turn into something stronger than iron? if yes then it's prolly that if no it's not
>>36960815ask the gnolls if they know of any other metal or shiny thing you can find in rocks or earth
so we doin' this or what?
>>36961544shh he's writing
Why do you guys have gnoll civilians in your civ? Last time I looked everyone wanted to kill the lot of them. Unless there are elf civilians in their town as well and its part of a plan to start a civil war?
>>36961645Not everyone is a murderhobo. Sometimes agreements are reached and alliances are forged.
>>36961645we're getting culturally enriched, like the muslims to sweden
>>36961348It does indeed.
>>36961645Since our island is comparatively tiny, we've merged forces for when we embark upon an exodus to the mainland. That way, we don't get instaraped by minos or golems or something.
>>36961690except that elves are willing to accept the gnolls and aren't getting fucked by their government as the swedes are
>>36961712i think we should get some more tech and better meals n magic before heading to the mainland
>>36961113>>36961010You deign that new things could be discovered if you dig deeper into the earth and rock. You have your mining Troggs specifically mine through veins to dig deeper tunnels, and request the Gnolls to do the same, even though they already are. Perhaps something of worth will be found soon enough?>Is anything else done this turn?
>>36961783nah lets end the turn
we're off to a slow start today>>36961783try out different combinations using the process of elimination until you get the tube open
>>36961806i change mine to>>36961906
>>36961645Bunch of furries got their way. You're a bigot if you don't agree, apparently.
>>36962067you're to sensitive, just don't care and your life will get 10 times easier
>>36962095Yours could also be if you follow your advice.
>>36962114why do you think i'm currently lying in a bed in my parents basement?
>>36962171I want to lie in a bed while using the PC too
>>36962246been at it for 3 months now, fucks up your back but it's totally worth it
>>36961783End the turn unless >>36961906 is possible.
>>36962316i'm just lying on my side with a laptop but i'm totally getting something like tht in the future
anyone else having a problem connecting to suptg?

>>36961783Just in time! Just waiting for the turn to end. I think after we learn Mathmatics we can open that tube easier.
>>36962489Empire phase? What does that do exactly?
>>36962489Sail-boats. Break the box. Have one do it outside and the rest keep a distance.
>>36962489Found a new settlement to the north east, on the beach, west of the beach.
>>36962489>Philosophical Teachingslets get all philosophical up in this bitch
>>36962520It marks the end of the Tribal phase and allows you to create new settlements. You'll no longer have to manage minor building projects, only major ones such as wonderful buildings like the coliseum or the temple. captcha: Yaboi
>>36962489lets learn some math
>>36962525Changing to math to get it moving. Can wait with breaking the box until after mathematics I guess.
>>36962489>Mathematicsand lets send a row boat to explore on of the islands, maybe we'll find pirate treasure!
>>36962585i fell that we need all of the other things before exploring the big world, we wouldn't anyone we come across to think of us as savages now would we?
>>36962549Here. Let's have access to the northern shore and have our own port city. Block the gnolls from the rest of the island too.
>>36962628I think even if we discover that, sail the seas, find land, find another civ, etc we'll already be a tech ahead and can have math by then. An Island nation should prioritize ships more than anyone else, but I prefer voting for a clear majority to get it moving.
>>36962489>>36962560I think we can wait on the empire phase a bit, but Mathematics is important.
>>36962659mm, and if we find a more technological civ we can always jew our way to their tech
>>36962634this, can't let them have all the lands
>>36962781True. What if we know a tech they don't? We could trade. That's how you get ahead in the real civ game.
>>36962489Sail-boatsBuild a new village at>>36962634's location.
>>36962821>We could tradeand give them an advantage when we can cheat and spy our way to their techsharing tech is not how you build an empire
i'm gonna go steal some booze, don't fuck up while i'm gone
>>36962950Well that's a fair argument against. I usually pick the furthest away civ from me that's also the weakest or average. We don't have that luxury here.
>>36962634VoteAnd send scout teams(FINALY SHIPS) to every possible direction, 2 ranger, 1 vanguard each
>>36962646+1Build one drydock
>>36963125We don't have ships. We have row boats. Calm your ass down.
Busy with the holiday, OP?
>>36963346But this thing have like 5rowing decks
>>36963125we needs to chill for a while before going Christopher Columbus, we need more tech to not get rekt
>>36963521It rhymes so it must be true
>>36962489We can build one quinquereme now? They rly don't need sails
>>36963539see>>36963521unless we're prepared we'll die, we need better metals as well
>>36963539We first need to establish the new city, then have a drydock, then we can attempt ships. Still won't be this turn even if we skip the drydock stage due to dropping building management.
>>36963563I think isolationism, especially for an island nation, is completely against our prosperity and power meter. All that eastern tech from eastern Asia and the ME flooded to the west through trade and exploration. China was isolationist and it got screwed until the globalization phase. Still, this is something to discuss for next tech choice.
>>36963563We don't need start The slaves plan now, Just explore, make some diplo shit, Create some citys etc.
>>36963567If we can have fishing pier now, why not drydock?
>>36963655This is a row boat. We're not going anywhere with this. Heck, going more than one sea tile further than the island will probably incur a good chance to die so you're risking even visiting those tiny islands, and going back. What you linked may have rowing, but it has sails too. And it's a ship, not a boat. Furthermore, and this one OP needs to answer, but we have a tiny dock for fishing 10 miles from a village, going through a jungle. I don't think we can support an actual drydock even if we have the tech(which I think we don't and it comes with sail ships), so we need the port city that is less a few hundreds of meters from the beach.
>>36963713*Chocolate 🍫 Skin Fantasy Enven World Magic*Problems solved, now, how much quinquereme we want? And op still alive?
>>36963713Rowing Boats can go for 10 tiles maximum over the water, so you can totally reach the new lands.Okay, so, Mathematics is the research I've gathered, but you guys gotta vote on what you're doing with the boats, and new village.
>>36963791SEND SCOUTS TO EVERY POSSIBLE DIRECTION
>>36963791Head south west there a green island there 9 square travel.The spot anon proposed for 2nd city seems fine so far.
>>36963791>>36963810Don't listen to this guy. Let's start on Mathematics, and then see where we are with our possibilities.
>>36963839i changge my vote to chill on the exploration, maybe one of the small surrounding islands first
>>36963791Agree on city location.Delay naval exploration for now.
>>36963825>>36963833I voted to math, u blind?Also send 30 rangers, 10 sentinels and 5 vanguard in The scout thing to The island.
>>36963919I didn't say shit about you voting for math or not. I said to not listen to you because we have absolutely no idea what the dick we're going to find, and I'd rather not waste resources on a potentially unsuccessful expedition.
>>36964201If you play civ, early water units are pretty safe unless we run into another immediately hostile civ. Unlikely given the map.
this map looks neat, is there a real game using that?
>>36964319Pirates. Like the crab guys>>36964357Civ 5 is close enough. The made is made in Hexographer.
>>36964357It can be pretty fun to have those in civ threads.
>>36964460Ah yes Necromancer civ quest, where the mc dies his 9 year old apprentice takes over bends a tribe of humans and a tribe of leonin to her will makes a civ and kick the goblins who killed her master's shit in 5 years later.
>>36964649:3 Undead snowball like that.I'm hopeful the prophecy will come true though and Mortas will be revived as a lich and take over.
>>36964693I doubt it, Octavia is displaying more talent and forethought than he ever did. Plus she's a theurge now meaning she ahs divine back up. She'll likely be wearing the pants. Though her bringing him back and making him a hero unit seems likely.
Your people begin researching a system of numbers and mental algorithms, most of which are inspired by the great cylinder in the village.You split your population 1/4 and send the smaller portion to found a new settlement to the north of your village, the camp there will grow as time goes by from this point forward and will serve as a location to initiate more actions from.>With this development, your tribe becomes a budding empire. What should this new nation's title be? On top of this, your two Villages need names as well.>31 Elf civilians and 16 Gnoll civilians head to this new village as it's starting population, the village begins with no military support, but you can assign however many warriors you wish to go there.You also send a scouting group by boat to the island Southwest, the Isle is relatively small and arid, with the northern half comprising of desert and badlands, while the lower half is vastly empty brushlands. However, beyond the island your scouts can identify further mass of land.>The turn ends>Village A gains 16 Elf Pop(109) and 4 Gnoll Pop(47)>Village B gains 4 Elf Pop(35) and 1 Gnoll Pop(17)>4 Village A Elves(97) convert to Spearmen(19) and 8 Village A Elves(97) convert to Archers(48)>2 Village A Gnolls(45) convert to Vanguards(9)>3 Village A Spearmen(16) upgrade to Sentinels(46), 7 Village A Archers(41) upgrade to Rangers(82), and 8 Rangers(74) Upgrade to 4 Skirmish Hoppers(7)>Slave Trogg Pop increases by 5(43) and Gladiator Trogg Pop increases by 1(32)>Mathematics has 4 turns left>Allowing Crossbreeding has 1 turn left>No events happen this turn>What do?
>>36964778intensify the mining efforts(more miners) and search for new locations to mine and other metalsbuild farms in the new village
>>36964778>>36964870This plus boats head northeast now.
>>36964749Depends purely on what OP desires. He hinted he may be too difficult to control. I think the prophecy also inspired him to kill the MC and let the girl take over.>>36964778Dig further than near the volcano.Name us Aranorn. We.. need something to go with it. Are we a kingdom or.. what do you call a sage council in control? Theocracy, sure, but led by a king or an equal council? Because I don't think the latter can be called a kingdom.
>>36964881to that green piece of land?
>>36964942>Are we a kingdom or..we are the beginning of an empire so i guess that makes us the emperor
>>36964956A little bit north so we don't turn out but yeah.>>36964942We'll see but I doubt Octavia would bring back someone she couldn't control. Plus she has greater talent, resources and luck than he does.
anyone know what up with suptg and when they will be online again?
>>36964985The Empire of Aranorn then? Also I think we already voted for our capital city. Dazre or something like that
>>36965125sounds good to me!yeah it was something with a d
>>36965026I imagine it would be up for a popular vote on who we want. The girl was pretty forced like a square through a circular hole to become what she is, since she never got to learn anything, so actual logic takes second place.
>>36965162I imagine she learned a fair bit, considering what she's done and the fact she took to it like water.
we should check all the rivers coming from mountains for gold
>>36965235Since she was 9? Sure, she probably knows far more than Mortas now. But I'm talking about taking over in the first place. Nothing logical about that, it's just rule of cool and that's probably what's going to guide whatever happens to the girl or Mortas, and rolls of luck. Also that god stuck in a dildo is a handy plot device to empower either party, as is "greater aura of magic" mortas may have or whatever one can pull out of his ass to support the rule of cool.
>>36965312Thought I read Mortas exposed her to a tome of Eldritch lore, and unlike most kids she didn't crumble.
So summarizing from what I gather4 to dig for new deposits3 for sending boats north east2 for Empire of Aranorn. And we voted last thread for Dazre(or Dazer?) as our capital's name.
>>36960815Hey OP, not to bother you too much, but what program did you use to make that map?
>>36965353I remember he cast a spell and she and a few more kids survived. I don't recall what it was>>36965369Hexographer
>>36965368works for me
>>36965389Yeah all the other kids had really bad reactions to it. She didn't. Girl had talent (obviously) and who knows what it did to her mind?
>>36965420I think two died and several survived. You picked the girl as an apprentice. What happened to the other kids that survived the spell? The girl demanded Mortas won't experiment on them further but I don't recall their fate after Sirren fucked our tower.
>>36965485Got sent off into goblins land. Most if not all them got eaten. Octavia doesn't know this.
>>36965485>>36965515can you guys take this convo somewhere else? i keep thinking op has posted
>>36965547Fair enough waiting for op now
>>36964778I think we name ourselves after the gods wor something, at least this island anyway.
>dig for new depositsYou already are doing this.You send out more scouts to the northeast across the water. They make landing over a coastal desert and head inland to find a temperate forest of evergreens. They also find clear signs of intelligent travel in the forms of intricate carvings in the trees and small footpaths leading to desolate and empty campsites.You elect that your Theocracy shall be titled "Aranorn" and your capital village "Dazre".>But what will you name the other village?
>>36965627>But what will you name the other village?Durkistan>You already are doing this.then increase the amount of people working on it
>>36965627Tula. Keep it memorable and short.>>36965593If we're naming geographical areas it might get bloated, but I'm in favor of "Melamin" for the island, meaning My Love.
>>36965627Please pick names yourself, or flip a coin. Those decisions tend to get deadlocked and delay the thread, and don't really impact that much.
>>36965687I like Tula as a name.
>>36965809Tula it is

>>36966212Well played OP.>You have two scout parties to the northeast and to the west. Where do you want them to go?You mean they're on land? If so north east group to the forest, more north east.Western group explore the southern part of the island.Are the nature sages able to deal with the box now?
>>36966273Indeed they can try.
>>36966212>>36966261thishave the nature sages try the box
>>36966273Also our ships report difficulty finding their way back home. Commence construction of the Great Lighthouse in Tula?
>>36966789Yo, that's cool.Anyways, since the thread has died down tonight, I'm gonna go to bed. I'm tired anyways.We'll pick it up tomorrow.
>>36966823see ya tomorrow
>>36966823Couldn't find anything about gnoll-elf hybrid so I googled elf werewolf instead. Same thing, almost, kinda.Night
>>36966823WOAHOAH BLACK BETTY
So now that the breeding barriers are down and it has a negative effect until halfbreeds become a majority:We should tell everyone that our goddess of fertility has smiled upon the gnoll/elf alliance and has blessed our races with this gift.We should tell them that we should pray harder to her to bestow the halfbreeds with greater strength and to absolve them of their (genetic) flaws.We should also encourage them to fight in the arena to prove themselves (thereby having the physically stronger halfbreeds propagate) or to devote themselves to learning (so we don't just breed a race of mindless warriors). The school and library should facilitate the learning aspect.
>>36971281Eh, less flaws, more 'Making the races one under the eyes of the gods.' They might take offense to the 'flaws' thing, sensitive things they are.
when does OP usualy start?
>>36974598It's Christmas anon.
>>36974861He's saying Civmaster might be indisposed or having more pressing matters like family time. Don't count on it continuing today.
>>36974904>familyPeople still worry about that shit?
>>36974979Just because your family a shit doesn't mean other people's are. Some people enjoying spending time with real 3D people and family over the holidays.
>>36975009So second life, or some shit?I'll stop now.
>>36974904Wasn't it yesterday?
Is there a new thread yet?
>>36977921yup, but you aren't allowed access
>>36977921I think OP is busy with the holidays. Don't think she'll host a thread tonight.
>>36979605You were deceived
WAITHAVE WE BECOME PIRATES YET
>>36980453Sadly anon, no we haven't.
>>36980453Pirates? Maybe we could have privateers but pirates for a civ?
