>Current Population: 1655(1630 Gorgon) (2 City, 55 villages, 4 islands, 32 heroes)>Culture and Art: Your people wear fine woven clothing dyed in vivid black and red mineral dyes, leather shoes, and various ivory, horn, and shell jewelry. They worship a pantheon of Celestial bodies with a casual respect towards elemental spirits and saints. Two Holidays are observed: The Spirit Festival and the Suns giving. Soccer and Public Baths have become popular past times.>The People: Your people organize themselves into large open families with communities formally lead by a Magocracy council of Sages. Gorgons exist as a visible Minority group that are occasionally bred/lived with. Trade skills are committed to and goods and services are purchased with Ivory Rings. Ethnicity wise your people come in a variety of light to dark tanned freckled skin tones with their white hair braided or kept short and messy. Your People speak and write Island "True" Cyclopean and Gorgon as a second language.>Technology: Your people use a variety of Iron/stone tools as well as Glass and clay products. Cities and Towns are thoughtfully developed and designed using advanced city planning and stone construction techniques (roads, irrigation, two-story buildings etc). Bamboo scrolls and the knowledge of Herbal medicines, basic geometry, math, astronomy, and rudimentary natural sciences are common and accessible..>Magic: (121 "Sages".) Elemental Magical practices are quite widespread as is the use of Megalithic structures and Iron/Gold as mediums for magics. Divine and Arcane Magics remain rudimentary. >Food: Adequate. Your people practice AgroForestry with large Orchards that contain Plantains, Mangoes, Herbs, Spices, Breadfruit, Cashews, and Sweet potatoes. Aquaculture is also used to raise stocked freshwater fish, but fishing remains a more practical source of seafood. Livestock include: Elephants, Triceratops, Peccaries, Chickens, and Banana Rats. Dried goods are kept in community Storage.

Previous Thread: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/37006581/Last thread our major achievements included: Building a bridge off the skeleton of the dead world snake, The invention of the stone Mill, domestication of the peccary, public baths, and an assortment of other "house keeping" innovations that just make normal life easier... With Exception to Parrats made Sapient. They do not make life Easier.However, due to outside forces a number of new issues and developments have come to your attention and would most likely benefit from your immediate response:>The South: Land of Ice and FernsThe Southern continent has only just been rumored- a harsh land perpetually frozen in Ice, with long nights, long days, and it's only saving grace being the major volcanic and geothermal activity that keeps portions of it unthawed to support humid, damp, fern-jungles. Southern Cyclopes have begun to finally make contact: original descendants of Cyclopes whom were displaced by volcanic eruptions and went further south as opposed to braving the "deep ocean". They are a soft-spoken, Stockier, black-haired Cyclopes who subsist off of sealing, and iron-working. They are a separate Ethnicity. >Gorgon Political upheaval.The Elves have been begun to relinquish their support from the Gorgon cities ever since they witnessed the magical displays and potential of Cyclopes. This has caused turmoil and suffering from the loss of infrastructure, a power vacuum to slowly develop, and the Gorgon cities to become even filthier, squalid, and wretched. OH and by popular demand; I drew us a new map! I even drew a little group shot of all the animals and people we co-exist with.

Rolled 89 (1d100)Idea: cyclop botomancers and gorgons should study fungal forest, identify different species, and see if they can try to cultivate managable versions of themDedicate Sages for this
We should study more medicine, maybe find out the exact nature of how cyclopes and gorgons function, what's the same and what's different
>>37141258Yeah. Maybe do some dissections on donated corpses.
>>37141200Instead of domesticating boiling lizards, why not say, something like national parks, dedicate them to nature spirits as places to commune with them
>>37141144>>37141156ahI thought they meant of a population of 1655, 1630 of them were gorgonsthat sentence structure should really be changedregardless, doesn't that make this a cyclops/gorgon civilization?

There are 1655 Cyclopes and 1630 Gorgons.>>37141169>Domesticate the Raptor.>Roll 10/20>Minimal Success +Nature of the Creature, +Gorgon CultureThe Raptor is a particularly savage, viscous, little creature: it hunts in packs, it steals chickens, banana rats, terrorizes peccaries and has a taste for eggs that make Gorgons quiver... But, despite that it does hunt in packs and it CAN be tamed and your Gorgons have imparted the art of Raptoring: an ancient sport that pre-dates Elven colonialism- a Gorgon with a leather glove commands a tame Raptor to hunt down pests and birds for sport and they are all too happy to revive the sport. >+New sport accidentally invented: Raptoring>+Tame Raptors available. >>37141305>regardless, doesn't that make this a cyclops/gorgon civilization?That's up to how our civilization turns out, but if Cyclopes go extinct for whatever reason: bred away, death, cultural extinction, etc.. The Game is over and you lose.
>>37141491speaking of which>Gorgons exist as a visible Minority group that are occasionally bred/lived with>occasionally bred withwhat the hell does that produce?and if it becomes the new majority, is that really a lossthat's just evolution, baby
>>37141554Gorgons make more gorgons. They're monogendered and reproduce through parthogenesis, like whip lizards. This gets asked enough that it might be a good idea to include in the opening post
>>37141554I think we learned that a union between a cyclops and a gorgon just produces a gorgon.
>>37141554Gorgons produce more gorgons via parthenogenesis.They don't actually reproduce with cyclops. Yet.But even then, we have to watch their population. I really like having gorgons around, but they could replace us easily.
>>37141598If we expand the population we'll need better food sources. Right now we're comfortably feeding our people but the gorgon communites show what a run away population does
>>37141598I thiiiink it was hinted that it was possible to create a new race by mixing Cyclopes and Gorgon through magic or divine intervention
>>37141662A lot of their population is refugees from the elves and fungal forest
>>37141662We could try to discover safe birth control.It would not only help solve our gorgon overpopulation problem, but would also be beneficial for the gorgon civilization's poor, who are being exploited as sex slaves.
>>37141574>>37141580>>37141598>>37141662could have a cyclops ruling class and a gorgon working classhell, given the squalor they live in and their much smaller size, they could be the child labor to our venture capitalists when the time comes
>>37141685There were plans to commune with the serpent spirit to help with this, either by allowing gorgons to produce cyclope children or some kind of hybrid. I'm not sure what happened to aforementioned plans though.
>>37141704That's a little...orwellian for the Cyclops I think
>>37141704I would want to avoid that. Cyclopian culture is all about community, togetherness and equality
>>37141743>>37141755I couldn't be happier to hear thata nice, comfy cyclops/gorgon commune sounds so much better
>>37141704I'm not exactly opposed to the separation of labor in such a way, there just has to be a better way of phrasing it.If there is stratification it should be less because "we better, you worse" but more "We can't do what you do and You can't do what we do." Separate based on what each does well... not out of some notion one has the upper hand on the other.Like, gorgons are just better hunters, weavers, and have the amazing skill of "Depth Perception" that cyclopses lack.But cyclopses are bigger, and have better magic. So much better magic that it gives gorgons hemorrhages.
>>37141200>>37141295>Help the Tapir population bounce back with better land management. >Roll 66/100>DOUBLE SIXES. INTERESTING RESULTSYour Council of Sages on the home island have grown mildly concerned- some more than others- at the slow and steady disappearance of the beautiful and noble Tapir. The Tapir is unlike the elephant or the deer in that it is a solitary animal that does not otherwise organize itself into herds. It is also nocturnal, enjoys old-growth jungles, and is quite "sassy"; all of these things and more have made the domestication of it almost impossible and their numbers have dramatically decreased to minor obscurity.The Sages would like to put an end to this, they ordain the practice of "Old Growth Respect": larger sections of connected jungle land are portioned off and allowed to as wild and rampant as they so desire- Farmers as well are encouraged to leave some of their Orchards go "wild" as well.>+FALLOWING accidentally invented+: Fallowing is not the same in the Jungle- instead of letting a crop be unseeded, you simply let the "wilderness" over take it for a few seasons to let the ground "breath". Allowing a few years of sub-par crop, but excellent foraging and hunting before a return to excellent crop.>+Dramatic population increase+: 305+ Cyclops>>Current Population: 2005(1630 Gorgon)>+"Urban wildlife"development+: The old growth respect has allowed for distinct rings of jungle to start growing inner-locked within your city and villages..This has allowed "channeled" habitats for jungle wildlife to live closer to home.
>>37141708All I remember is bad rolls.
>>37141794That scene looks comfy as fuck. Hope we get to that point technologically at some point.
>>37141840So are the Tapirs ok now?
>>37141892It looks like it. Too bad my idea to study fungal growth will be overlooked for this round. Hopefully I'll be able to wiggle it into the session somehow
>>37141491>art of Raptoring: an ancient sport that pre-dates Elven colonialism->Elven colonialismOhshit.jpgI think we need to be a bit more prepared for this
>>37141970hm, the elves did grow the fungal forest as a deterrent for whatever is on the mainland....Oh fuck, they're running from insect hordes and swarms in the mainland
>>37142093I'm okay with this.
>>37141840Also there were the merfolk we had just encountered in the reefs, can't forget about our aquatic neighbors
>>37142161We didn't so much encounter them as much as we got threatened by them to back the fuck off.
So with the enlightened parrats what should we do?I kind of want to see if we can get them on our side somehow. Would they comprehend peace offerings? Like of food and clothes? Or hell even games? See if we can't teach them soccer so they can work out their rambunctiousness.Or what if we were to raise some of our own? Taking parrat eggs from their nests (Or whatever it is) and raising them amongst cyclopses. That said... that is kind of morally nasty thing to consider. I just want to get some tiny jerks on our side to pester opponents like Elves.
>>37142238Let's drop a giant stone near one of their nests that basically says we will give them shit if they stop being assholes and start helping outThey won't need to steal from the granaries, and risk being eviscerated by our newly domesticated raptors, if they help us gather food
>>37142238I think with all these new factions showing up, I think we need to work on our diplomacy. I mean, we've got merfolk, new cyclopses, and parrats to deal with now. If the elves are as terrifying as we make them out to be, we need to get as many allies as possible.
>>37142296>drop a stone with an offering of peace and food for the parrats.>Come back and find its been smeared with foul smelling substances and covered with expletives, including drawing mustaches on the gorgon's faces.
>>37142305Agreed, diplomacy is the way to go.
>>37142305Absolutely. Merfolk should (hopefully) be the easiest to diplomacize, but since they're limited to the ocean, it's uncertain how effective they'll be. Parrats would be absolutely devastating against the elves, but trying to win them over would be high risk, high reward. There's a chance they'll drive us insane long before they'll want to work with us, but if we can convince them, they'll be very, very useful in terms of warfare.
>>37142305We need to work on our military as well, its going to be tricky since we are very peace-loving. Maybe some sort of sparring game or hide and seek?Imagine a cyclops being able to hide like a true ninja.
>>37142238We did bring them to sapience, there is no reason for us shun them. We need to take responsibility. Be the great parents we know we can be.
>>37142305>>37142376>>37142408Perhaps it is time to consult the weaping sage on the Parrat issue, they've been a problem for thoundsands of years now.
>>37142305Yeah. We've got some gorgon stuff going down but if we can make allies out of our enemies, the better. Big challenges we face are this,The Elves are too above it all.The Merfolk seem kind of xenophobic by nature, if their message is anything to go by. The Parrats are just a race of knoxvilles with little to no common sense. Out of those three which do you think would be easiest to diplomacy with?
>>37142305>>37142408>>37142435>>37142437This civ quest is going to get a lot more political. There's going to be some serious statecraft going on.
>>37142477Kind of minor to consult him on this. Plus they're sentient now, and mostly living elsewhere since we brought in the raptors.
>>37142437it's easy really, we just put a bigger focus on Martial arts and self defence, healthy living through exercise, and hold tornaments for martial arts masters for fame and glory.
>>37142494Parrats. Gifts of food would get on their good sides easy. Plus we could hire them for certain jobs now that they're sentient.
>>37142494I actually think we should start talking with the new cyclopses. See if we can learn anything about metal crafting or boat building from them, and see if we can increase trade/migration.
>>37142558Them too. Maybe send a hero from our lands to talk with them. My only concern is how different their thinking might be, and where they are technologically. We've got infrastructure up the wazoo afterall, and if they're in the stone ages I'd just imagine the culture shock.
>>37142552Perhaps we can hire them as scouts/sabateurs/guerilla fighters in the fungal forests against the elves eventuallyThey have killed using banana peels before
>>37142543Oh yeah... they did that somewhere as a dance or something. Brazil maybe?
>>37142558on that point perhaps we can also improve the bridge, shaping the coral growing on it so that it's easier to walk on. We also still need to set up monoliths to help connect us to air and nature.
Don't underestimate parrats.They are not stupid. They are tricksters.
>>37142611Brilliant! the elves will never develop counters and strategies against them because they'd be to ashamed and prideful to talk about it.
>>37141368>Research and Further Develop Botanomancy- Study the mysteries of the Fungal Forest.>Roll 84/100>High End Success +Magocracy +Dedicated AgricultureWhat is the song of the Trees? The Flower? The Grass or the Leaves? What Hymns do the plants hum so elegantly on the soft jungle breeze or when tickled by the salty air of the sea? The Fungal Forest however is an entirely different matter all together: Such an alien, grotesque, and foreign mockery of what most of your people consider "vegetation".The Sage council of the mainland community would like to put an end to this and a number of them make the commute beyond the New Growth and to where the Old Fungal growth still subsists: A sky-scraping Tree line of enclosing fungal forest greets them- utterly blocking out any light from entering below it's canopy. They sit down, hold their mediums, and begin their Hymn.The Fungal forest does not respond.It remains completely silent- completely and utterly disturbing silence. Such a silence that has not been perceived by your Sages before by any entity. A silence that is cold, dark, empty, with such resounding and utter-hollowness that it consumes Song. The Fungal forest remains unresponsive.Your Sages begin going home- the moon is rising, the sun is setting, and many of them wish to eat, drink, and bed. A few of your Sages remain though and they raise their hands and mediums of Iron and Gold to the sky to perform a duet to beckon forth the Moon: The pale, glow of the moon faintly glistens and seems to intensify enough for a single spotlight to extend down before a small section of fungal forest. The Fungal forest becomes responsive- It becomes TOO responsive; the summoned light of the moon causing rampant, chaotic, and uncontrollable growth that starts crawling, expanding, and writhing forward. The Sages quickly stop.No one knows what to make of it, but they all stay a little longer to peer back at the Moon.

>>37143021No cyclops has achieved immortality yet Anon, well not that we know of anyway.
>>37142914With that roll, I will say, yes, diplomats are an idea. The dice gods will it.
>>37143021Yeah. Heroes beget more heroes, sages beget more sages.It stands to reason a weeping sage would beget more weeping sages. But since our ONE weeping sage sacrificed himself... I doubt he'd make another weeping sage after being dead.
>>37143067There's probably one who read the grimoire after he died and took the mantle. But right now I don't feel as though there's anything worth bothering him for.
>>37142771>Acquire boiling lizard eggs to raise and train>Roll 5/20>Complete Failure.Some of your more Brazen Cyclopes wish to raise the boiling lizard: a massive creature, with an inflatable gullet it engorges with water to expel a boiling, steaming, torrent of water for self-defense and attack.... But it seems the only place they willingly lay their eggs is in some of the most dangerous spots on the islands, namely the places with volcanic activity. Any attempt to collect the eggs is met with hot feet, burns, and at least one Cyclopes accidentally falls to his death.>>37142779>Improve the Snake Bridge for further function and take advantage of the reefs growing on it.>Roll 71/100>Success +Racial bonusThe Snake Bridge hasn't honestly been as popular as most people would think: it sways in the wind, it takes a long time to walk across, and most Cyclopes are honestly more inclined to just swim and use it as a resting spot.... The Growth of the Reefs though have changed this: Small temporary shanties or shakes that act as "pit stops" have been sprouting up- These shacks are made of drift wood, Bamboo, bone, and rest upon stilts that are then fitted into the corals and tied to bone. Originally built on choice foraging and fishing spots- they've slowly evolved and further developed from temporary dwellings to committed fishery spots.>+Accidental population increase: +120>Current Population: 2125(1630 Gorgon)
>>37143067You're makeing this way more complicated than it is. It's not really that hard, a sage only needs to read the cosmic scrolls. You're also implying that the Weeping sage didn't have any heirs, which was never stated. Cyclops OP also didn't state that we lost the ability to make more of them, so this line of thinking we don't have any weeping sages is a moot point.
>>37143165Nice, knew improving the bridge was a good idea.
>>37143165I just read that filename as 'Shit-house-with-can-o'Okay, how about making some simple snorkeling equipment so the cyclopes can better see the reef, and maybe harvest some new and interesting things, maybe learn more about the sea life?
>>37143378They already can hold their breath for 15 minutes or more I think and their eye sees better underwater.These cyclopes are modeled after the greek ones which were offspring of Poseidon
>>37143473Ah, very good.Has there been any mapping of the reefs done?What about using magic to speed the growth of coral to make some foundations for more ocean construction, or even harvesting blocks of coral for construction on land or decorative and craft purposes?
can someone post the art made so far for this quest?
Would someone be able to tell me the schedule for this quest? I've been in the last three threads (and I might be an idiot) but I haven't see a pattern yet. Apologies for boring meta question..
>>37142914>"Diplomacy".>roll 100/100, No counter roll can beat you.>Complete and total undeniable success +Too Successful +Collectivism -Cultural lack of identityFor decades now there have been groups of missionaries, Hymn-singers, and other various both magical and mundane Cycloptic individuals whom have selflessly committed and voluntarily given up their days to benefit Gorgon civilization. This changes one day though.The original Elven diplomat from ages ago, returns; ageless, youthful, in his long flowing robe of living fungal growth with an entourage of two other Elven attendees in flowing morphic paper-thin robes carrying an Artifact of seemingly great importance. The Elven Diplomat speaks to your emissaries, "I have something here I would like to give to you- native born." The Elf snaps his fingers and his attendants bring forth a large, bumpy, ball of flesh-like fungal growth- He picks it up and the fleshy-walls of the growth shed and blossoms forth a bumpy, dimly glowing, nearly pure-white mass of reflective metal-like stone.The Elf chimes back, "This is something I had hoped to give to the Gorgons, but they remained inadequate for such an important role- I would like to then extend this offer to your people in hopes for your assistance. Please extend your hand and receive it."One of your Cyclopes does as he is told and extends an open palm to receive the soccer-ball sized ore stone."Now, this is a moon rock-" Is the last thing the Elf Emissary says before he faints-Part 2 incoming.
>>37143710I can post stuff. I just got back from christmas break so i can start arting again, the deep eye from last thread seems like something I want to try next.

>>37143710We have some letters and numerals as well.
>>37143851>cultural lack of identityWe should develop ideas of family, city, and nation. Specifically via civic virtue and in contrast to the squalor of the gorgon. The only way we can prevent such a thing from happening to us is by taking care of what we have: our own person, our family, our home, our village/city, and our nation.
>>37143961And snake based numerals.
>>37143851>>37142705The Moon is a giant fungal entity. Great.(fuck I literally had that as an idea for a setting/story)
>>37144044Perhaps the fungus comes from the moon? Or is more responsive to it. Still might be a cool thing to consider. the moon is covered with things that feed off rot and death... Lots of things must be rotting and dying on the moon.
>>37143710and some weeping sage.
>>37144222>you will never see Weeping Sage: The Movie
>>37144152or maybe the moon is life? The sun has mostly been destructive so far. Even if it's helpful, it's not really engendered life.The moon could be life, encouraging it to grow past the point of fecundity and into cancer
>>37143851As soon as the Cyclopes comes into contact with the stone he recoils and sends out a horrifying pained yell that echoes across the minds of every being within the Gorgon's City: gorgons faint, some even die, and the fungal wood bends upon itself. The Other Cyclopes try to slap the stone out of their colleges hand, but they too freeze upon coming into contact with it: from the point of contact their skin slowly turns into a rich shade of dark blue, the stone itself bursts into a vivid flame of cold white of blue-hued fire that seems to consume visible light. Your Cyclopes eventually drop the Moon rock and come to their senses: their brown tanned skin has taken on an almost unnatural dark to light blue tone and where the Moon rock has been dropped- a small, tightly-packed, thick, grove of fungal growth has enclosed itself upon it blocking out any light it gives off. The Elf slowly regains consciousness a long with his entourage, "Ah, yes, well it seems that may have worked a little 'too' well, but no matter- if anything it""Silence, please", one of your Cyclopes beckon- The Elf immediately loses his voice, but then regains it on command when your Cyclopes asks "why". Visibly convulsing in his mental discomfort he lets out a pained response, "We need to return" and points vaguely to the moon before collapsing in exhaustion- His Attendants nervously coming to his aid.Your little group of Cyclopes missionaries are too wigged out- checking out their weird blue skin and complaining about the constant ringing in their ears to ask further questions.ALRIGHTY.

>>37144266The sun can prune life or reduce it to dust.The moon can encourage healthy growth or let life become a cancer.They are neither good nor evil. They simply are.

OH GOD SO MANY AWESOME ROLLSIt sucks we can't use them all. I wish we could bank them or something.
Rolled 18 (1d20)>>37144308Diplomacy at the Parrats. Perhaps share some of our food, and games (Like soccer). is this an idea or an action?
>>37144402>>37144434>>37144435>>37144456Holy shit. Rollden age.
Rolled 4 (1d100)>>37144526in case its an idea... because lets face it we've never considered communicating or interacting with them before... mostly because they were animals. SO introducing ourselves as creators, or peaceful now might be an idea. But still diplomacy is an action now.
>>37144517I'd love to bank them for the next round of actions. Can we do that? use up an action for a previously suggested one and the roll with it?
>>37144308Hang on. The elves seemingly colonize by spreading the fungus, which grows due to the moon. Looks like we got a case of Space elves.Anyway Action/Idea Create choirs, by which I mean that we should begin teaching every cyclops to sing the great hymns, perhaps have a year of childhood wherein they learn of the great songs.Is that an Action or an Idea?
>>37144564>>37144526Really hope its an action instead of an idea....
>>37144570Maybe we could use them as a bonus. Like, the previous rolls represent progress being made towards an idea/action that can built on it's up to the QM though
>>37144360Could it be that the cosmic serpent is some sort of spirit? Like a really really powerful one that has chosen to oversee/involve itself in the affairs of the gorgons?
>>37144360The moon symbol kind of reminds me of the old middle age maps of the earth, which divded the earth into three bits- a big one representing africa and then two smaller ones representing Europe and Asia
>>37144730Maybe the cosmic snake is some titanic animal like the zizz... that we have yet to see yet. I mean when we communed with the air, we accidentally communed with Zizz. when we communed with the snake, we wound up accidentally communing with the Deep Eye (Or whatever Leviathan is).
>>37144821Of course that begs the question of where the cosmic snake dwells... if it is indeed physical.
>>37144821What element are gorgons most powerful with?
>>37144867I think it was implied plantgrowth/fungus.
>>37144867They were the original botomancers
Hey, did we invent the rudder yet?
>>37145091No, hell I think we made Sails, but i don't know if we stuck em on boats yet.

>>37144408>>37144361>Study The Phenomena of the Blue-skinned Moon-touched Cyclopes>+After glow Freebie+>Success through CensusThe Moon-touched Cyclopes return home and are immediately brought towards the council to have a good look at them. They report back what happened: How the Elves brought them a piece of the moon, how through it's power they were turned into this, they swap notes on how the Fungus responds to the moon, and the words of the Elf.They are quick to notice the power they displayed to command the elf have dissipated and the normal Hymns and weight of their words has returned.....Also something else..Several of the Cyclopes have been fused together by the power of the Moon Rock: attached in the middle, possessing two-minds, their bodies and souls merged together to form completely new individuals with mannerisms reminiscent of both individuals.>+Sub-species Accidentally Developed: Moon-touched Cyclopes. >Moon-touched Cyclopes are distinct in their vivid Blue skin tones, but more importantly how some possess TWO-heads. Both traits seem to be recessive: Two-heads only appearing when both parents are Moon-touched and even then rarely (25%) but ALWAYS produces blue-skinned offspring. Interracial breeding produces only very rarely blue-skinned Cyclopes (15%) but NEVER produces two-headed offspring. >Moon-touched Cyclopes are too "fresh" and public opinion on them remains neutral. They remain a perfectly normal people albeit blue and sometimes two-headed.
>>37144901>>37144923well that's neat if they are parthenogenetic if it turns out their gynogenetic then it's still neat but much more lewd
>>37145140If the trait is recessive, it might fade away in a couple generations to return once in a while. So I guess the Moontouched will remain, what 10-15 for a while. We definitely don't want to force production of Moontouched cyclopses, we don't want to wind up with any Amish style genetic bottlenecking.
>>37145253They'll just be here and there, with their numbers increasing when the population increases. No biggy.
>>37145140Two heads means two One eyes...Does this mean we have bicyclopses? What does this mean for our "One Eye is enlightened" philosophy?
>>37145335Each head is a separate individual, each with one eye. They just share a body.
>>37145140I assume we took the moon rock back with us to the mainland? That could single handedly become the centerpice of the greatest megolith to the moon ever.
>>37145335They're effectively Siamese twins, so just treat them as such.
>>37145409they are sky cyclops, one is the moon, one is the sun.
>>37143184Didn't reading the scrolls caused most people to die, with the one dude as an exception? Anyways, its not something anybody would want to do and I think the whole "summoning the sun in physical form to drive off the incarnation of the wind" makes this flavor of person one of a kind. Anything else would trivialize his role.
>>37144402>Develop Philosophy and Ethics>Roll 98/100>Complete and total success. +Cyclopes Culture, +Gorgon povertyThe poverty and the shame of Gorgon Civilization and the constant influence of their suffering has had a humongous effect on your people's cultural values and the philosophical pursuits of what it means to be "good" and what is "evil".From the dawn of time your people have possessed a natural preference for collectivism and as a whole that has eventually developed further into a complete disdain for individual identity and a strong sense of superiority towards Cyclopes culture. >Cyclopean Collectivist philosophy formally Achieved>"There is no greater mortal identity than that of the whole. The basis of all suffering is personal individualism conflicting with the altruistic nature of the group. Gorgon civilization being an example: corruption, degradation, depravity, and weakness" >"Kindness, informality, the whole is greater than any individual- to love, to long, to share, to mediate the suffer of many through the shouldered efforts of ALL."
>>37145473It caused people to go blind I think, or get so depressed they want to die. Its been a while really. Maybe the bicyclopses will have some resistance?
>>37145538So are we becoming a capitalist collectivist society?
>>37145473No, the people who researched the secrets of the cosmos went blind, then they returned home with their scrolls and died in bed. The one guy who was brave enough to read them became the weeping sage.Go reread that part, you need to refresh yourself.
>>37145575Capitalist Communists.Our American and Russian ancestors (for those of you who are american and/or russian) are rolling in their graves.
>>37145538These guys just keep getting cooler.
>>37145609The point still stands, we can't just pull powerful figures out of our collective ass like that.
>>37145473And we're not trivializeing his or her role by continuing the line of weeping sages, if anything the weeping sage being saintyfied only enriches the lore of the role. I'm also not pushing the we have more than 1 at any time, I only want the tradition of haveing one in cyclops culture to continue.
>>37145662Communism and collectivism are different things.Cyclops aren't really interventionist when it comes to economics. They let farmers, fisherment, and other businessmen do their thing and seek the holy dollar.However, when it comes to the needy, it is simply tradition to give and share. I doubt cyclops would force a rich man to become poor for the sake of someone else, probably because the rich cyclops is already investing in public works and charity.Who funds the diplomatic expeditions into gorgon territory? Probably rich cyclops trader families.
>>37145744I think we need it less to be a Line of weeping sages, but more a school or priesthood of weeping sages. Same way we now have a Solar Priesthood, and COuncils of sages. we were discussing how to negotiate power structure.Solar Priesthood was going to be a lot of law and order kind of stuff,and Moonsages following research and development,and we were thinking a third order of Craftsmen of the stars to enact change on behalf of the council.
>>37145744Saintifying somebody is not the same as having other people impersonate them for the rest of forever. And if you think we should have more people like him just suggest having people read the scrolls as an action.
This is why I am wary of the Civilization game's system of a small set of actions per turn at some point actions should only be limited to the number of participants (players). I think it’s more natural to pass to a builder-game-like system where every participant can roll for individually for the actions of a single individual or small group within the civilization. Of course this could be more taxing for the GM, but it could reflect civilization moving and acting on different levels and directions. The small group that went exploring need not be kept from exploring further because architecture and commerce are sudden on the rise because it’s the interest current main interest.OP do not think this as a criticism on your game; because I fucking love it, it’s merely my musings on the system use by /tg/ in general. I may try my hand at a Civilization game and test my own ideas.
>>37145575So we're the chinese?
>>37145717It's not like we're pulling it from nowhere, it a power we can use if we want to, simple as that.Reguardless this conversation is going nowhere, let's agree to disagree on this and get back to the quest>>37145790I do think we need to work on this, it will make our council more efficient, like a guild for wood workers we have separate groups in the sage council focusing or specific magics.>>37145796>Implying I'm suggesing impersonating someoneNot even once. My stance is that we still have weeping sages in our civilization.
>>37144434>Send a diplomatic party led by a hero to the southern snow cyclops tribe. its a bout time we get in touch.>Roll 19/20>Complete Success.Heroes are sent out, Dashing and brave groups of Cyclopes are lead, and the Journey to the South is committed to with the blessing of the Sage council so that open discussion may commence with the Southern lands and the Cyclopes that dwell there. The Journey is long, the Deep ocean is rough- massive waves with equally massive monsters, serpents, leviathans, and the harsh winds and rains of a seemingly never ending storm constantly batter the venture southward... but still your people persist and eventually land on the rocky shores of the South.The South is a foreign, but familiar place: a land carved and melted into the corner of an ENDLESS massive iceberg that defines the compliments the blue-skied landscape dotted with Fern forests, rolling grassy hills, large bushes of moss, lichen, and hardy thick-leaved vegetation. A Cold, refreshing breeze washes over the faces of your people and blows their white and silver hair... It....it's fucking cold. It is SO god damn cold- NO ONE is wearing anything seasonally appropriate: your people honestly didn't even know what Ice was. Luckily they do not have to look long for the Southern communities: Dozens of them Dot the Coast and they are all to eager to offer hospitality to your strange, partially naked, band of explorers. They are decked out in fluffy winter "coats", supped on Seal, muscles, fruit, green vegetables and through their thick accents- Diplomacy is established.>LONG TERM CONTACT HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED WITH THE SOUTH.>They are not a "formal" addition to your civilization, but they are still Cyclopes and they are willing to trade, discuss, and assist.
Damn this is hard to catch.Note if not done already:Leather working, carpentry, ink (tattoo and writting), proper paper (combined with leather = books). Oh and Standardised weights and measurements.Since ill probably not be on to suggest them, these would help allot if folks are at a loss for ideas.

>>37146044We China Now!
Rolled 14 (1d20)Idea: Start the art of carving colorful coral and stone into simple crafts, which will probably lead to well decorated temples and aesthetically pleasing buildings in the future.
>>37145941>Journey to the Southsounds like a great name for an epic. The many days of travel it takes to reach the south, the adventures on the way, maybe throw in a few helpful spirit characters and we got a legend for the ages .
>>37145941OP, do we know if the gorgon's and Cyclops's are made one?

>>37144456>Explore and Excavate the abandoned Gorgon City>Roll 20/20>Complete SuccessThe New Growth has completely enveloped the Old Snake Shrine and the place is completely unrecognizable from what it had once been: The Fungal growth had long since rotted away back into rich soil that not only allowed for the new growth to over-take it, but revealed the ruins of an ancient Gorgon City.Cyclopes and Gorgons alike have begun to frequent the place and a number of discoveries have been made through committed excavation:>The Gorgon City seems to predate Formal Elven Colonialism, but not the Fungal Forest itself. >Most Standing stone structures do not possess stairs- platforms, and grooved pillars are more common.>Some of the more well preserved and non-collapsed structures possess clay products and GOLD. LOTS OF GOLD.>There are numerous fragmented statues and broken murals depicting Snakes and Reptiles combined with Gorgons illustrating an animistic pantheon. One of the most iconic gods being an enormous Hydra fertility goddess with each neck feeding into the hips/torso of many huge breasted Gorgons. ((Like, instead of having heads it has entire Gorgon ladies.))>Beneath the City there appears to be a long abandoned aqueduct flooded into a swamp aquifer. >Everything else seems to have rotten or deteriorated away beyond identification.
>>37146505Could we carefully bring the statue of the fertility goddess into our city? Put it in a museum?I'm sure slowly geomancing it would work without any problems.
ALRIGHTY.You may now Roll.ALSO, I've been meaning to ask:Is there anyway I can host or link or whatever our information/stats outside of a post?

>>37146808It only responded to anything because our sages were trying to interact with it. In it's normal state it seemed pretty resistant to magic.
>>37146837I'm a little afraid to find out. We shouldn't look into until we find some way to protect the gorgons.
Idea: maybe if gorgons return to or incorporate their old religion they'll handle magic better Also weeping sage could be a post to act as mediator between Cyclops and spiritual world
>>37146810This is probably going to be like the Grunt Rebellion in Halo.
>>37146905I'm not too familiar with Halo, I can only assume their tiny rebellion went poorly since they're still under covenant control in the games right? ... Does that mean we'll be okay? We'll keep these Parrat menace subjugated or keep em from getting out of hand?

Rolled 7 (1d100)>>37148526Ask the elementals for assistance in finding materials that can enhance or resist magic.
>>37148537Can we use this as military defeat and subjugation of parents as Casals instead of genocide?
>>37148537>Supporting I was the one who said that so long ago, but no we must suffer them to live.
>>37148537Voting against.The Parrats are sentient and we simply have bad luck with them.In time they will be tamed, we just need to be patient.
Rolled 1 (1d20)>>37148537Fuck this, counter-roll
>>37148583Some people say that about the Irish.Both usually said by those with little interaction with them.
>>37148520>>37148546>>37148537>>37148576>>37148579This is getting pretty damn racist
>>37148537Oooh damn, a 20, even though I don't advocate genocide, just subjugation.
Rolled 13 (1d100)>>37148526Research ice magic.
Rolled 12 (1d20)>>37148526Have we yet to make contact with a Elven state? Perhaps we can consult that one elf diplomat and see if he can take some missionaries to an Elven city?Maybe they might have answers to the Parrat problem.
>>37148621Well I honestly should've seen that coming.HEIL HITLER.
Rolled 16 (1d20)>>37148526Find more metals to forge and smelt Dedicating hero for this
>>37148621Does that count as the Parrat's roll?
>>37148632They are bad. Inherently, they are vermin, rats, they steal from us, and seemingly try to kill us, as they have done at least once. We have tried talking, and now they burn.
>>37148537Peace doesn't work. But I loathe genocide.Perhaps some righteous subjugation is in order? the parrats seem to stand against our Communal values.
>>37148537Full support, do it like the Romans on Carthage.
>>37148698>the parrats seem to stand against our Communal valuesThat is why they must burn anon.
Voting subjugation over genocide
>>37148697Lets go with three strikes buddy.Strike One; We peace them.Strike Two; We subjugate them.If Strike two doesn't work...well...I guess its time for Genocide.
>>37148698I would be willing to compromise on this, they would work as a good subjugated race, though if they betray us, they burn.
>>37148667I was going for more of a cyclops splinter faction, but whatever
>>37148698But slavery rarely helps educate a populace.We just need to make parrats work in our society before they rebel or something.Maybe try to engage in some of our own humor with them? Humorous but harmless hymns? Something they could learn but wouldn't abuse?
>>37148735but it is our land moron.Salting the earth is reserved for Elves or Elves.
>>37148737Stop with the burning you pyromaniac. Its sort of out of character for our race as it is to use force on them as is. We need to work towards murder town. or viciousness.
I'll miss their wacky guerrilla banana peel warfare.
>>37148761Subjugation, and then, some education, teach those little fuckers to not shit and steal.
>>37148741>>37148761They are to dumb to subjugate and too weak to work.
>>37148761Are you saying... Fun and games may help indoctrinate the parrats? Instead of giving them fruit? we give them soccerballs? or whatever those ball in a cup things are. Entertain them?
This shit is fucking crayIt's like if some teenagers egged your house or something, and you walk outside, shoot one in the fucking face, grab another by the hair, skin and burn it, burn down the homes of all the teenagers, and then blow up the entire local high school.
>>37148767I mean on their almost complete erasure of their existence, if the romans haven't brag so much about destroying Carthage and almost no one could know about them.
Use Previously mentioned roll for sailing/sailors idea
>>37148791They have been annoying our people for centuries and have caused the death of a hero and many hunters. They are a tumour to remove.
>>37148833What happens if the little fuckers figure out that our weakness is our eye? You're gonna be singing a different tune when you catch a seashell shard spear in the eye.
>>37148821Yes.They enjoy entertaining themselves but lack healthy avenues to do it.Give them alcohol and teach them to have to pay for it. Give them toys but don't replace them, make them work for it.And housebreak them, while we're at it.These parrats are basically children. We're teaching them bad things by trying to exterminate them.
>>37148833Athens did it on Melos how come we can't do the same?
>>37148833They have killed us before. People seem to have forgotten, they want to kill us or make us miserable, We have tried talking, They refuse, we cannot leave them, or they will rot our civilization, we can subjugate them, or we can kill them.
>>37148884You make a good point anon.Shall we roll for this now? Or Next time?
>>37148837You said like the Romans to Carthage.This is referring to the city, which was dismantled and the earth was salted.If you said like the Romans to the Carthaginian then your intent is portrayed.
>>37148848>something about your edginessNah but seriously this is totally out of our cultural area. Like until moments ago we were peace and community and shit, but you just went genuine Hitler/Ayn Rand on the harmless pranksters
>>37148930We are just hunting a pest anon.
>>37148904By subjugation I do not mean slavery, I mean making them be helpful, educating them from a standpoint where they cannot deal damage is what is needed.
>>37148951Considering them a pest severely underestimates them.Extermination simply will not work and will lead to rebellion on our own islands.
>>37148926I see your point. OK, lets do it like the Romans to the Carthaginian but leave no record about it!
>>37148930It really does seem hitler/ayn rand is more the gorgon's style. It strikes me as something more in character for them (In nature/back home) anyways. Which is concerning. We might be doing more harm to them culturally if we let a war break out with parrats.
>>37148962They are cunning, small and weak.How could we possibly make them useful?
>>37148979Extermination just did work>>37148537Subjugate them. Teach them. Then let them free as citizens
>>37149001sick em on our enemies. like the elves. or merfolk.
>>37149001Who cares about making them useful? We just want peace.
>>37149006Are you suggesting we go Rome on their asses?
>>37149006>Subjugate them. Teach them. Then let them free as citizensI would agree to this on anything more worthy but not them.They breed fast, they are cunning and very malicious.
>>37148962Ha! Like the "helpful" subjugation of the Spanish on the indigenous people of the Americas? Or the British Empire on their colonies maybe Ireland?
>>37149044>>37149006They breed fast and we have no enemy to sic them on. How would we occupy them?Unless we bred them in controllable numbers and held an iron fist over them at all times.I would find that worse than extermination though.
>>37149061You say that like it's bad in this context, we're taking rats and making them useful citizens
>>37149061Very much this.I've read the Destruction of the Indes. It ain't pretty and I'm sure the gorgons would be very abusive towards the parrats.The parrats need to stay in the jungle area that encircles the city and do odd jobs in exchange for alcohol and toys.
>>37148951They're sentient, and we made them that way.
>>37149001Oooooh, idea: Send them into mines, they're small, and can probably see every little spec of ore, or use them like canaries to to protect miners from gas or foul magics or something.
>>37149097I want them dead. Some want them subjugated. Some want them left alone. I am the guy that rolled the 20 for extermination, by the way. I think we should vote.
Where were you when the Parrat menace was exterminated?
>>37149133go back to /pol/
>>37149100Look I m all for extermination, but don't you dare have the gall to pretend to be benevolent and have their best interest in mind.
>>37149133I think he is writing the extermination currently.
>>37149143>menace>one casualty and a lot of stubbed toes
>>37149126NO NO! I am for extermination, not lending the fuckers free.
Reminder that enslaving or exterminating the parrats goes against Cyclops culture and could set a dangerous precedent.What happens if we meet the humans? They're probably very warlike and might battle us a few times. SHould we exterminate them too?How bout the mermaids? They want us to fuck off. More extermination?Parrats are annoying. We just need to teach them to be constructively annoying and all will be well.
>>37149131That makes senseIn German fairytales Kobolds are mining fae
>>37149170Countless Gorgan hunters and a Cyclops hero.You would really let your waifu get hurt by the parrat menace?
>>37149192You can reason with humans, you can't reason with rats.
>>37149129Time to fix that mistake.
>>37149205Parrats are just underdeveloped.If they were rats they wouldn't give us so much trouble.
>>37149205Yes you can because they are sentient.
>>37149192>Reasoning>ParratsI bet you would want to negociate with teiflings or Succubi.
>>37149216>Implying vermin didn't plague the world up until very recentlyNice try, Parrat poster
>>37149231You can reason with them though
>>37149238I-I'm... not a parrat.You have no proof.
>>37149192Voting, as I have from the beginning, to try enlightening the parrats. Ignore the /pol/ assholes. Give them toys and sports.Invent a game that allows Parrats, Cyclopes, and Gorgons to work on teams for better understanding among the races.
>>37149257>You can reason with them thoughCitation needed
>>37149133Alright. I have said subjugation and people have given me arguments against it, I have suggested Extermination, it has been reasoned against.What do we do? We can't agree on this, and I really don't want this to fall into arguing any more, we're wasting valuable thread timeWhat do we do?
>>37149274Maybe something like capture the flag?Bring the flag to a specific location and you get beer and snacks (if you're a parrat)?
>>37149274Give the killers of a hero toys.Parrats have always been annoying and they have killed several Gorgans and Cyclops. Don't vote until you have read the entire story.

>Exterminate the Parrats using any means necessary>roll 20/20>Complete and Total success. All across the home island people are hunting, cooking, and smoking parrats from out of their homes, neighborhoods, woods, and actively exterminating them at any opportunity they can take advantage of. What can only be labeled as the Genocide of the parrats has begun to sweep over the community and even those opposed to it eventually gave in due to pressure.It takes a few years, and it seems as though last of the parrats had been finally flushed off or exterminated from the island... But,>Parrats Roll to ask for spiritual and divine intervention.>Parrat Counter Rolls magical research: >>37148593 >>37148642>Parrat rolls 69/100>HOT 69. INTERESTING RESULTS.But one day a harsh wind began to blow- such a breeze that it felt as though the island itself was breathing in and out of itself from a mouth within the jungle. The sight of the jungle visibly wavering and the sound of birds and animals fleeing from.. "It".A Towering being. With the Head of a Parrot, the body of a tanned muscular man, the long dragging tail of a lizard, a majestic colourful "Beard" of tropical feathers and a great cloak of living vegetation that drags across the floor leaving behind a trail of flourishing plant life. A being so tall and upright it's shoulders and head peer over the jungle as it advances towards the City with an entourage of parrats riding atop it's shoulders and a visible cloud of birds encircling it's head like a halo. The Great Titan inhales and exhales, "CAW, CAW- CAAAWWWWW" His mighty crowing echoes across the island before he raises his arms and slowly scatters into a cloud of birds and lizards.>-Demi-god Curse: Still Birth of the Traitorous Snakes->Gorgons all across the mainland community and islands come home- to find their Eggs and the babies within them rotted away. An Entire generation of Gorgons have been killed- many mothers end up killing themselves.
Can we stop arguing and just move on? Qm decide what you think is best
>>37149336I TOLD YOU MANI TOLD YOU DOG DON'T KILL THE PARRATSNOW WE'RE AT WAR
>>37149336That is why we should have killed them all years ago.
>>37149336Great. The /pol/ asshole is inducing a gameover. Fucking trolls. Fuck.
I bet the parrats aren't even completely gone. Those left are just in hiding.
>>37149336You stupid assholes.
>>37149336God damn we made them stronger.
>>37149204I don't think any gorgons have actually died, there's nothing to suggest that.

>>37149406>>37149403>>37149369They would have counter rolled anyway.This happened due to the failed research rolls.If they were exterminated before they became a threat than this never would have happened.
>>37149336Great... we fucked with Parrat Moses, and we got some plagues going down.
>>37149444Mothers are killing themselves
I think now would be a very opportune time to consult the Great Serpent about interbreeding.>>37149477No, this happened because you committed genocide and frankly you got what you deserved.
>>37149448It was from the failed research and anon's ruining the consensus on a justified action.
>>37149496We're gonna see a dramatic decrease in gorgon population because of this...

Rolled 16 (1d100)>>37149336Idea: Vengence
>>37149403That's flatly unfair. That specific one number being rolled is not something we could have foreseen, and in theory would have happened whatever we did against them.
>>37149496Because of you, you fucking faggot. A Parrat could see that, you genocidal twat.
>>37149536Fuck no. The last thing we want to do is escalate this.They're off our islands and we paid the cost of it.Just leave the parrats alone.
>>37149336So the next Civ is Parrat Civ right?
>>37149536No, Jesus. Fuck you, we just proved that's a terrible idea.
>>37149549Or the people allowing a threat to our people survive long enough to do anything about it can be blamed.
>>37149585>I don't understand cause and effectBecause you committed genocide a god decided to bitchslap you.You're an idiot.
You know we did have our own god come down in our time of Need we saw the Zizz and the giant snake we really should have see Parrat God coming
>>37149585What threat? They were a minor nuisance until a bunch of idiots tried to murder them all.
>>37149336>Granting minor barely sentient beings a gigatic demi-god on rolls having nothing to to with their extermination.Absolute bullshit
>>37149640THISThey were merely annoying and would have ended up as minor thieves at worst.Now they've responded to our genocide with genocide of their own and they're completely justified to do it.
>>37149620This setting has a very Classical Greek feeling where great crimes will be punished by the gods themselves.The genocide was extremely against everything the Cyclopes have done up to that point
>>37149647Punishment for asshatery is my guess.
Everyone calm downWe all hate what's happened but we need to look at this from a cosmic point of view. What's done is done, we console the survivors and learn from it

>>37149448>>37149647>Suicide and a lost generation from a,twenty?>BsI don't usually post "game mechanics" because I think it takes away from the game, but I'll elaborate on what non-spoilerey happened:You genocided the Parrats so good that they asked for Divine intervention, with the combination of high-jacking a few of your own bad rolls they received a bonus.. but then they rolled a 69. Certain rolls receive +interesting results+ benefits attached to them simply by how rare or particular they are: Doubles, certain numbers, 7's, etc..They used their roll to circumvent the fertility bonus you received here: >>37147959 Effectively "debuffing" killing/causing an entire "batch" of Gorgon babies to be still birth. Gorgons pride themselves on their sexual freedom and the quality of their "brood" due to their fertility-culture- To come home to ALL the babies having rotted into mush devastated many of them.The Cyclopes are fine. The Gorgons you share space with aren't. Bad Rolls. Bad Results. Individual actions don't exist in a Vacuum. With that said I think this would be a good time to call it a night. It'll give people some time to calm down and collect their thoughts. I'll also store/post the Stats on a pastebin set up from now on.I hope everyone had a great time and they don't let the Curse discourage them: Success is defined by perseverance in the face of adversity and this is one event among many.

>>37149819I have to wonder. Is this a god of parrats? Or is it a god of Lizards and Birds? A Raptor God? What makes a god?Sentient things worshipping it? Or do the gods come first and make the sentients? We just exterminated a race and their god gave us pay back. We should consider what this vengeance means.This is a misstep in our culture. One that should inform our future.We did wrong.

Feck only one action....all those great rolls lost
>>37150007Learn the definition of parasite. It isn't that.Also literally all deaths on our side- including that Hero- have been because we tried to kill them. Damage to property really hasn't been mentioned and they weren't even making a dent in our bountiful food supplies.
>>37150007They didn't kill anyone with any amount of effort akin to what we did to them. And when I say we, I mean you.
>>37150084This is the real tragedy here. For all the posturing about how much of a threat they were, we were the ones antagonizing them.

They pray to the Cosmic Snake, they pray to this new Hydra fertility god, they pray to anyone who will listen in hopes that all this suffering and unkindness will end in someway or another. It happens in the night. The stars shine so brightly, the constellations and formations of the cosmos twist and turn and from them beams of light twinkle forth and extend down from the heavens to the earth- spotlighting the homes and dwellings of where the Gorgon Mothers have lost their children.Most are asleep, but the ones who are awake witness a great spectacle: The many heads of the ancient and once forgotten Hydra god descend her heads and maidens upon the earth within the wake of that holy lunar light- slithering into the homes of Gorgons and Cyclopes. There, she gently embraces those who have lost their children, consoles them, and mercifully guides and blesses one long, unhindered, eclipsed night of copulation.The Light Fades, the maidens slither back into the night sky, and Mothers sleep soundly.The proceeding days -not all- but many Gorgons wives stomachs and breasts have begun to swell and a new, fresh generation of Eggs are laid. Flawless. Healthy. But as of yet unhatched.Who's to say if they'll be half-breeds, but hope and love remains.

>>37150678Next Civ better be Parrat Civ
>>37150678Just wanted to say these cyclops civ threads are some of the best threads I've seen on 4chan. I really appreciate what you do here, and I think you always do fantastic work. You are really wonderful, Cyclops OP.
>>37150678So are the parrats as a species completely extinct?
>>37150720I hope parrats still exist somewhere. You know. Seek forgiveness. I think we've expelled them from our islands (Or home island) but still. The world is a big wide place.Of course if they do exist whatever god they have is probably warning them about us, the same way the cosmic snake warned us of the elves.
>>37150843Same.Parrat Moses is out there somewhere, I know it.
>>37150843Yeah and we've also expelled them from our bowels too.Rest in poop parrats
>>37150836>So are the parrats as a species completely extinct?No, non-sapient Parrats still dwell on the mainland. Parrats by themselves basically fill the same ecological niche as monkeys: >>37141063 I drew them next to their closest relative the Kakarilla. ((Half Kakapo, Half Gorilla. ))I won't say anything about what the Sapient Parrats are up to.
>>37150907>I won't say anything about what the Sapient Parrats are up to.For the love of the Sun can we NOT aggravate the hornet's nest anymore?
>>37150907I DID NOT NOTICE THIS PICTURE. WE MUST DOMESTICATE BRONTOSAURS! FINALLY, A STEED!
>>37150944To think it all started with mad magiscience trying to make parrats intelegent enough to bug elves. Honestly even the elves don't seem that bad any more. More aloof and insenstive than straight up facist magitech overlords. The worst might be the Merfolk really.
>>37151017Merfolk are clearly isolationist. It's like Japan. Leave them alone.The elves are just shipwrecked travelers who want to leave. This makes them inconsiderate about the indigenous races, as no matter how many enemies they make the elves will eventually leave them behind (they hope).
>>37151017We're the worst now. Genocidal warmongers. We had such promise once ):
>>37151094Not by any means the worst, the gorgons are horrifying, forcing people to eat their own eggs.
>>37151048You aren't wrong. If Merfolk are merely isolationist that might be great. But it seems they have a more malevolent entity at the head of their society, the Eye is what I'm worried about.>>37151094Every society has a shitty moment in their history. Things they do wrong, that they either try to move past, or live with; I mean, look at Germany.We shouldn't let this experience change us, especially not into warmongers, but forgetting it ever happened is a bad idea too. You know, we might get us a Tolstoy or Dostoyevsky out of this. Philosophical literature before its time.
Can we stop ideas from going through if enough people oppose them? It seemed like a lot of people were against killing the Parrats.
>>37151205Yeah, but we also rolled a twenty. That's some pretty strong power to go against.
>>37151259True. I just wasn't sure if counter-votes actually counted.
>>37151351Perhaps if we went with counter rolls instead?I guess since we were discussing the whole ramifications of genocide, and perhaps trying to clarify what we wanted to do (IE like going for subjugation instead of outright genocide) we could've wound up with a split action similar to how the "Peace" situation worked out. IE with the cyclopses rolling one but the gorgons rolling 14 to deal with the parrats.Honestly it might not hurt to explain how arguments/contrary rolls would play out OP. Not just for this case but maybe other situations, like say>Send an army north to confront the elves.vs>Send an army south to confront the dwarvesAgain these are examples but it serves the point.What do we do with conflict in the thread?
