Rolled 28 (1d100)Last time on Fantasy civ quest the journey continues, the adviser is slowly coming to a dreaded realization, undead were encountered, and currently your having a talk with a vampire count who is quite friendly to guests.All of this happened simply because of a simple walk in the woods...>Turn 13>>>>>>A.

Rolled 53 (1d100)>>37358830Sorry for being late its either starting later then usual on regular days or changing game day to Mondays and Fridays.On the plus side I could start earlier bottom side fridays are a bad day from experience.
Rolled 23 (1d100)>>37358830>H: Perform a great speech to boost morale. People won't be able to do shit if they feel like shit.
>>37358893Sure. Fishery upgrades next
Rolled 95 (1d100)>>37358932>>37358893Now with dice
>>37358953>95Noice. Good job, m80.
Rolled 95 (1d100)so giving up on negiating with the count?Your adviser points out the Count has bound to have a weakness or want the trick is figuring out what it is. Even if the Count himself cannot recall.anyway last thread link http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/37249121/
>>37359128Dude I can't remember shit about what we were doing with that guy and I want to get back to civing. Can we Fate point him into whatever it is that we wanted and move on?
Rolled 31 (1d100)>>37359240I was planning to do that anyway but if your willing to give up on it then very well.Just think what you'll be missing out though...Burning a fate point would indeed allow you to come to some sort of basic agreement.
>>37359326I am down to wait for more people to show up before we decide, but if the decision were left to me I would burn the point and move on.
Rolled 46 (1d100)>>37359395Until then you can still attempt to negotiate pity you didn't bring anyone with you who could help more...
>>37359445I wish I had anything at all to contribute to this scenario. Guess I should go reread the last thread. I'll be back
>>37359445Velara and Ashley are both with us. Who else would have been useful?
>>37359599>>37359545Also in the first few posts you said we have a hero resurrection, we have not used that yet... Certainly general viczar could negotiate this, or the HaX commander, or Cuban Pete could handle this?
Hey guys, what are we up to now?Also did we finish negotiations yet? I believe we were gonna burn a fatepoint on that.
>>37359681We'd need a vampire. Or somebody close.Didn't we have a vampire hero in the last fantasy civ?
>>37358932Actually, on the topic of Civving I really want that metal mine. We have plenty of food and water right now.Still, let's ponder on negotiations a little bit more
>>37359773The ghost named "djinn" that we never fully understood that functioned like a fantasy AI
>>37359799We don't have food settled yet, but we are close. Metal soon should become a priority too, the dwarves must be restless
>>37359773We had a undead officer, tree girl, human sniper and ranger. The hero from the last one would have a better grasp of nobility, I believe.
Oh yeah, and here are the crude outlines of the terms we want to achieve with these guys.What we want:A full military alliance. If one of us is attacked, we will come to each others aid. Before declaring war on anything or seeking another alliance, we will consult the other.Shared borders and protection. We're planning to expand into the forest one day, if the elves have left a lot of room, we want to fill their place. Likewise, there's a lot of dangerous things in the forest, so we want help keeping us safe in it. We'll be good neighbors to each other, warning them of any danger that might come their way.We might also ask if some of our own undead could live in your borders, temporarily.Nightime help. They work far better at night than we do, so we could use your help in such matters, especially in the forest.What we offer:The same terms above to be held by. If you guys come under attack, we will come to help you however we can, and will inform before we declare war.Fresh blood, possibly by shuffling out people to bleed into jars or bowls.Daytime labor. We'll work in the day, they work at night.
>>37359872Got the pastebin for richard? I remember we tried fluffing him to also be a commander, and the ability to split our army between two competent commanders would be amazing.
Rolled 66 (1d100)>>37359681You could also summon a hero...Resurrecting a dead hero doesn't bring them to you it just means they are now back in the game.>>37359904You do remember he outright rejected that last time right?
>>37359904Really, we want to merge with a vampire civ? Doesn't that seem dangerous? Im going back to rereading the last thread.
>>37358893The main reason our morale is low is we lack civilians to take care of the day to day task. To deal with it we ether find more people or disband some military. >>37359128Only things I can think of for the vampire are new things or something different for him. The book could be nice ... in way. The adventurer could help with tails like no other. ... dam it got to go, working.
>>37359978>You do remember he outright rejected that last time right?I know. We don't have anything good enough to give them yet.>>37359999They were absolutely friendly and hospitable to us, gave us a tour and a place to stay, and are well informed about the forest having lived and survived here for ages. They are a neutral party who doesn't make a lot of enemies, and the most suitable allies in these parts.
>>37360072>>37360041Right, so how about we ask the vampires if there is anything we can do that they want. The only thing I could see us wanting from them is trade and tech..
>>37360072Just start with something simple and we will add to it later once trust had grown. Do trade and non aggression pact with blood offerings or something like that.>>37359971Nope at work, but I posted his info in the thread about reviving.
>>37360135We did that. They already have all the trading they need.They are an extremely pragmatic, self sufficient, and neutral party who know how to take care of themselves. They aren't interested in pop growth, have enough blood for the pop they do have, and seem content to lie here just as they have for ages.But now is the best time as ever for us to move in next door since the elves have recently been expunged by slesh the slaughterer and her bunch, which means there's more room for us.
>>37360177Sounds good to me. Fate point it!
>>37360194Now let's not be too hasty now. >>37359978Hey Genie, is being smart with how we want our fate point burned gonna give us a bigger boost than just "burn it"?
Rolled 10 (1d100)>>37360281yup.
Rolled 52 (1d100)>>37360281For example, say I wanted to "burn a fatepoint", to make our blood so incredibly delicious and sweet to the their taste that it fills their very souls, to the point that they realize the only way they can get more is by agreeing to our deal and having us nearby, and having a LOT of us.
>>37360430Ashley might be able to help us do that for free
>>37360495This is also true.
Rolled 77 (1d100)>>37360430Vote
Rolled 24 (1d100)Here is something interesting to offer"Well... Hmmm. Ok here me out on this. It's a long shot but I have a feeling you might be interested. So my men have been complaining that they never get to practice this odd wrestling fighting... Thing. I don't care for wrestling my self I prefer dueling. I don't know much about what they are talking about but it involves a lot of grappling, pinning, and apparently pounding. From the way that talk about it they really seen to be passionate about it. I think it's called fæçkíñg or something like that.Oh you heard of it? Great... Why are you looking at me like that...?Well any way as a gift to my men I'm planing on making a nice building dedicated to the art of fæçkíñg reel soon, so they can practice and have lots of fun.I bring it up because with all the strange and interesting creatures I have in my army ranging from reincarnating fox people to even a centaur; fæçkíñg wrestling them would probably be really fun and interesting. If you agree to this treaty then you and yours can wrestle there when ever you want as often as you want."
>>37360430But if it's too good them they will want to over take us and use us a blood cattle
>>37360836Once the house of šæx is done (we should use a boon to make it nice and easy to up grade) we can charge people from all around to use it.
>>37360836If we do burn a fate point we should have it so that >>37360836 not only sounds like the greatest thing ever but make is so once built
>>37360865Having us as "blood cattle" isn't that bad, it is essentially what we want. We want to breed, and expand our numbers and influence, and the more we do the more of our tasty blood they get.>>37360836>Our hero referring to such a placeHeavens no no no.Make it ashely or ted or anyone else, his mind wouldn't be able to handle the concept.
Genie can you throw us a bone pretty please. At least tell us if we already posses something that would make them accept the deal as given, that we just don't know about it.
Rolled 86 (1d100)>>37361180You don't exactly possess much they would want. However there is something that you can offer that will tempt the Count. As it turns out they don't exactly live in utopia...
>>37361274Can Valeria's [IDENTIFY] ability see what might be the one thing missing in Vampire society?"Valeria, these vampires seem to have everything they need. . .but not everything they want. Can you tell me if there something amiss in their life?"
>>37361274So, do they need our help defeating some one of some thing? Or the amazing unifying power of our great hero?
>>37361077I don't care who suggest it. Just that it should be suggested
>>37361377Hoping we get some good *dialogue*
Rolled 15 (1d100)>>37361377She can identify units and problems...not sure if that will work will depend on the roll.It will be very difficult(watch as I jinx myself)
Rolled 6 (1d100)>>37361797Wouldn't it count as a problem for the vampires?
Rolled 95 (1d100)>>37361797What do you know she has no clue...not even a hint.
Rolled 47 (1d100)>>37361797Valeria's [IDENTIFY] ability see what might be the thing missing in Vampire society that we can use to finis the creating of the treaty with all party's happy. Or at least get close and narrow down what it could be.
>>37361918The liveing conditions that they have is pritty shitty. We can build and fix the ruins they live in and clean up the land around them. Is that what they wanted?
>>37361918Can't we just ask them what they want?
>>37362007I bet they would like the slightly magic earth stone (it can probably absorb the corrupting force they give off allowing the land around them to heal and log pritty) as a building material.
>>37362007There area is fucked up a lot. But what can we do that they can't?
Rolled 63 (1d100)>>37362026Of course you can but be aware that the count may be unaware or ignorant of some problems...>>37362086Possible but would require some kind of trade agreement...
>>37361918Can our clerics purge the corrupted lands? Out of curiosity
Rolled 81 (1d100)>>37362026>>37361918"Sorry if we asked this before but, you seem to have everything you need.But I can't shake off the feeling. . .not everything you want. . .are you sure you can't think of some hearts desire that might be missing?"Activate Ability: Awestruck AromaMaybe that'll loosen up their tongues, like therapy almost.
Rolled 90 (1d100)>>37362185And have Val's identify ability go after the awestruck aroma is activated. She might be able to tell even if the count won't.
yo. looking to follow this civ quest, only problem is I cant find the first thread anywhere. ive got all the others thoughanyone fancy throwing me a bone?
Rolled 47 (1d100)>>37362185>>37362237Vote. I hope this works. Dose the hero have a hidden luck ability? If so use it.
>>37362255I'm not the guy who works the archives. But welcome to the game. It's great and the fluff is godlike but what ever you do NEVER DELETE A CRIT FAIL ROLL!
Rolled 78 (1d100)>>37362183Possibly.>>37362185...Ashley isn't with you."Hm...of course there are wants like oh I don't know ruling the world, but we have our needs and we can survive without our wants.">>37362255You didn't miss anything on it as it was mostly debating about choices and a few bits of fluff.
Rolled 45 (1d100)>>37362237>>37362185Vote. Hopefully we can get back to the normal civ stuff. Dam this was an odd walk in the woods.
>>37362255Well fuck me, the first thread on the suptg archives is broken.http://archive.4plebs.org/tg/thread/36747650/>>37362314> NEVER DELETE A CRIT FAIL ROLL!Listen to that advice, the most important thing of all.Sorry if we get paranoid, but that has resulted in the death of civs 90% of the time,
>>37362336"Ruling the world you say?So you do have expansionists after all. And yet you're so profoundly set on isolationism and self sustainability. Why is that?"
>>37362336There must be something you need. There are few in this war torn land who have everything they need.
Rolled 45 (1d100)>>37362336Ruling the world? We can help with that. If you look at my army you will find that it is a mix of all kinds of creatures and power. That is because I am amazing at turning foe to friend. How faster to rule than to work with one that can do that. With you ruling the night and me the day, we will take the well of ascension.
Rolled 66 (1d100)>>37362391"You are aware of where we are yes? A place forever torn by war. Peace is nothing but a concept here. This place you get only an uneasy truce and temporary trade that will provide.""I believe in self sustainability that we have succeeded in and granted we are rather isolated by that is because I make sure we maintain a low profile.""yet the young and the foolish make their follies on their own and not dragging us down with them. I have had more then enough from surviving through the age of darkness alone."
>>37362521The age of darkness can end. And it will be ended by those who do not stand alone but stand among ally's and friends. If you ally your self with us it need not be an uneasy one. We trust our friends and as long as you don't betray us you will be our... My friend.
>>37362314excellent, the fluffier the better>>37362356cheers mate
>>37362521How can a group of vampires be not only self sustained but isolated as well? There is no food that grows here so you can be keeping blood cattle. You are isolated in a corrupted forest that no wanderer, hunter, or trader will enter so you can't be feeding off them. So how I ask can you be this? You must be scraping for blood where ever you can find it. But we can provide more. Much much more.
>>37362521"But what if we could make this place safe? For the both of us?What if we could promise an alliance that would never betray?Did the elves ever ask of you the same, or Slesh? And yet you do not ally with them either. For Slesh seeks slaughter, you know this, and the elves had a disdain for her.But we have no quarrel with either.But we can offer you the one thing they can't. And that is peace, and a more secure peace at that.">>37362774>Actually apparently they have access to some damn good traders
>>37362521Yes you survive but you do not thrive. You are like a candle. Burning alone and burning slow. You removed yourself from the world and it's heat to prevent you melting faster. But alone you can not make more wax and you will eventually burn out. Alone you will only fade to nothing. But you can take the chance to become great and greater. Together we can be more. Together our flames can shine.
>>37362829"And not only peace but hope for the future. For a time without war. A time where all can build with out the fear of destruction of war."
Rolled 15 (1d100)I am thinking call it a night ... maybe we do a walkabout to the bathroom and find that one thing they never knew was wrong. Then once the new day hits we finish this talk.
>>37363167Or a walkabout of the city.But me and Godzilla do wanna get some civving done too, in addition to heroing.
Rolled 51 (1d100)>>37362774The vampires are careful when it comes to undead taint and their 'cattle'.>>37362829"Safe? Those who think they are have nailed down their own doom.""Never betray? Do NOT use such words mortal you breath 'never' constantly at worst it doesn't last a single life time or at best only a number of them.""The elves knew better they came into our neck of woods and their bloodless corpses will be reclaimed by their precious trees before they could ever give word out.""Slesh? We have...agreements with Slesh.""Peace doesn't exist in these lands only temporary truces and war. You best remember that before its too late.">>37362893"EhehehehAAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHA.""You are a fool of the highest order you know WHY I am like that?""For a very simple reason I unlike most of my brethren do not have delusions of grandeur. Unlike them I ACCEPT the fact that I no...WE are parasites.""You know what happens when parasites 'thrive'?""Their host dies and they along with it.""You are welcome to perish sooner as you are doomed for but we will live on. It is only your nature to see it that way after all...""But do not drag us down to your level mortal."
>>37363310Completely fair. We need to get the morale problem fix and that will need a recruitment drive or disband. Then we should think about rebuilding the farm after what the fae did.
>>37363490>"You know what happens when parasites 'thrive'?">"Their host dies and they along with it.""But you have proven that you are masters of self restraint and sustainability.You ARE thriving in the most optimal way by ensuring your demand does not exceed your supply.What we offer is a way for you to continue to practice that on a larger scale. That your supply increases, so that your reasonable demands can and will be sustained."
>>37363563We came here to go to war with monsters so we wouldn't have to disband. I'd say we let the hero return home, fight off some monsters, and the casualties+action should solve the overabundance of military.
Rolled 39 (1d100)>>37363595Your gonna need an awful lot of casualties...>>37363580"Heh now if only others saw it that way.""Practice how hm? Becoming larger will eventually draw attention to ourselves."
>>37363595Yeah I'm into not killing people off slowly. Plus that will hurt morale even more. We can go help some people and build up trust in the near by villages. Then recruit them into the fold or keep up with the undead and see about acquiring some undead workers.
>>37363684"Not if we surround you.Think, it's obvious there are monsters, undead, spooks and specters in this cursed forest.And yet, if we were to clear it, surround it with ourselves, hide and mask your presence with the living why, nobody will ever know you are here.">>37363783We're going to have to fight the monsters off anyway, the men need a victory and now is a good time.
>>37363835True, but the underlying problem still remains. Also at this rate I'm about to agree with the fate point burn or boon to speed this up.
>>37364172same.Just a generic burn, or can someone fluff it to be smarter?
Rolled 32 (1d100)>>37364172Use a fate-point to give us the one thing these Vampires want and need more than anything else in their non-utopia existence, and that the only way to get more of it is to agree to our terms and help us expand.
Rolled 17 (1d100)Faint point burnt.Acquired Trade Agreement.WARNING the lands of the Vampire Count are still withheld from you.WARNINGA treaty of truce has been signed with the Count.ALERTYou now have access to special vampiric merc units.THey are the following>Vampire Necromancer>Vampire magi>Vampire Soldiers>Vampire Assassins>Vampire KnightAfter resting for the rest of the night at the Count's you move on towards to edge of the forest only to find your troops as ordered commencing an attack on the monsters contained within the woods(yes I remembered).What do for turn actions?
Rolled 82 (1d100)>>37364373Doing a civilian recruitment drive. Tell of the land we are making clear of monsters and bandits. Offer up to 2 currency to help.
Rolled 93 (1d100)>>37364373Um. . .care to link which conensus for the fatepoint was burnt?AlsoWar Action:Ride home with some of our vampire Merc Units. Rally the troops to war. Our men need ACTION! We go to clear out monsters in the forest to set up a secondary base to trade with new friends and gain some land in the forest where the elves have left us a lot of space.Our illustrious commander will lead our forces! With their new vampiric allies who know the forest and the monsters here.Basic ActionDwarves not going to war, go dig us a Metal Mine.
Rolled 4 (1d100)Ah that reminds me anyone got any ideas for civ name?Its killing me at this point as i can't come up with anything...>Salesmen Ekeybef...Okay captcha let me write that up quick.
Rolled 16 (1d100)>>37364540You have to hire them first...It just means you can now hire them.EVENTA group of odd Salesmen have arrived they claim to be of the Ekeybef group whatever that means.The wares they offer are of the following groups.>Supplies>Weapons>Armor>Keys
Rolled 63 (1d100)I'm home if any one still wants my notes on the last fantasy civ.>>37364604My good sirs would those keys be something that leads to adventurer or just the basic kind?Also get the peddlers to help with the deal and our adviser.
Rolled 47 (1d100)>>37364695"Some of these keys are special capable of opening any lock, creating a door when previously where none stood, allowing one to open even a mighty gateway or creating portals.""Our keys both of the ordinary kind and the extraordinary."
Rolled 21 (1d100)>>37364812"Why that does some grand. You wouldn't happen to be willing to show us how they work would you? Also would you happen to be carrying any metal or mining tools?" ( I assume we only have the basic tools for farming and the like or did we get mining as well? ) ... I want to go bandit and just steal all their shit for portals. Just think of the combat moves we could make.
>>37364604>>37364812"How about comfort supplies for the weary soldier who has been at service long and long?"
>>37365153does sound grand*
>>37365153Attacking traders is particularly bad mojo, even for bandits.
>>37365203For the Apocalypse I would agree. For they are a great life line to the out side and bring things that could be hard to find. Anyway I'm fine with not, I just hope we will have the money to get needs dealt with.
>>37365286We have loads of money, and a unit of dudes specialized in trade. Furthermore it's much harder to spend "curency" here than the post apoc. I say we buy it all.
>>37364604What do they want to be hired for?
>>37365373We have a town near by it's not to hard. It would be if this currency's backers got wiped. I can agree with buying a good chuck if we need to.
>>37365171>>37364812>>37365153*dialogue*>>37364812"Do you have a key that can unlock a gate to an unknown place? To summon an unknown person we only faintly know of?There is someone we are looking for. . .someone we have only seen in pictures. we wish to summon them."I wonder if we might find the girl in the picture and bring her back home.
>>37365489Now I wonder if we should use the new year hero revive/summon on the girl.
Rolled 11 (1d100)>>37365171"We do indeed have some luxury supplies like booze.">>37365489"Hm...a gate to another world hm? Now that we DO have...several in fact.""We could indeed open a key but a key doesn't summon those beyond it though they may potentially come through.">>37365153"You'll have to buy them first.""No we do not carry any metal or basic tools with us."
Rolled 93 (1d100)>>37365551"Ahem ever thought about summoning the other Didrikson from the earlier fantasy quest?"
>>37365650So who wants to buy this key, open it up in front of the Garden home, and see if we can't get the girl to come back?I do.
>>37365785Yeah, I thought about that. Suggested it even, gave good reasons.But I'm too tired to try and shift these guys towards good decisions anymore.
Rolled 75 (1d100)>>37365809The thought of the two MCs interacting greatly amuses me to no end.Though the thought of two fucking advisers doesn't scare me to no end...especially considering one of them identify specializes towards units and aids in...persuasion due to certain matters in regards to select units.
>>37365785Yeah, even posted his stats during the thread. Down side is how to get him to join up with us. ... first dibs on all girls from this point on?
>>37365785"You speak in tongues, the only didrickson we know of a great adventurer."Actually, that would be cool.I VOTE WE BRING BACK RICHARD
>>37365809Just speak up more and speak louder, it's easier for us to notice you smartanon.
>>37365903He'd be fine with joining up with us, he doesn't have shit else to do, his attempt at founding a kingdom failed because of military incompetence (which our commander handily solves), and one of his cousins is with us.
>>37365915I full heartedly agree. His relative should be returning from adventure soon
Rolled 70 (1d100)>>37365915Ah the only Richard I am aware of is the 'Richard' Volk.You sure about summoning his ass?
Rolled 21 (1d100)>>37365936See, why didn't you say that earlier.>>37365650I vote we summon Richard, either with a key or the ressurect, don't care which.
Rolled 77 (1d100)>>37365936Well if everyone is on bored, I will back it.Here is my notes if it's needed.>http://pastebin.com/Tdin9FkU>>37365988Sir Richard Jeffery Didrikson V
>>37365988No, no the hero from the last fantasy. That richard.http://archive.4plebs.org/tg/thread/33493585/#33493585>One such advisor was Sir Richard Jeffery Didrickson the 5th. Taking with him some of the family rangers and expert crossbowmen, he gathered a force of his families hunters whom were loyal to him.
Rolled 28 (1d100)All this fervor for the Richard of the Didrickson family...Alright then Summoning certain hero commencing...------Meanwhile at a certain location where plotting was going on."You sure this is a good idea?""We HAVE to get someone who can...compensate for our Leader in...certain matters.""Aye that we do.""Yeah but was it a good idea trusting them?""Psht just about everyone agrees and we got the ritual.""I do hope this doesn't go wrong..."-------In a deep dark canyon...in a crevice certain items were collected people were brought forth, and the ritual commenced."What happens if this goes wrong?""It wont.""How you know that?""You'll see..."Suddenly with a flash of light a...stunningly handsome figure arose. Like...DAMN he is HAWT.Who after looking around with round eyes abruptly jumped up hands in the air shouting "I am ALIVE! Only after those who summoned him entered the light did his expression change."Aw shit....maybe I would of been better off dead.""Greetings hero I am Wuz and we been expecting you."Hero acquired stats had been given and his name already been provided how noice.

>>37366202Woo!Now what. Hmmm, we still wanna go to war to clear out some monsters for some land in the forest? I do.
Rolled 15 (1d100)>>37366336That's happening we just need the normal action and if we want to buy anything.... I guess with the new hero they could get to know the troops and use their insight to Identify anything.
>>37366313I voteA supply of Booze for the menA generic key that opens any locked thing, even things locked by magic words, without activating any trapsA key that opens a portal to the Ekeybef group in case we want to buy something then and now.
>>37366451I can back that. How much is it?
Rolled 85 (1d100)>>37366451That key will be quite expensive...Do you wish it to be one time, reusable, or carry certain amount of charges?Same with the other but less costly.booze will cost 2 currency(you got a lot of guys).
>>37366451I think we should get the group key first, the problem with caravans is we always tend to not realize we need something until it's gone.>>37366818How much for a reusable ekeybef group key?
Rolled 75 (1d100)>>373668585 currency.
>>37358830Sorry for invading bros, but /r/ing the source for this pic. Thanks in advance.
>>37366959What are reserves again? And will they accept them as payment for Booze?
Rolled 58 (1d100)>>37367007Basically resources that can be consumed for actions if you don't got any proper materials.
>>37366202God damit guys. We could have somoned the prophet of fate>>37366818How much for a key that can find anyone you know the look of (for finding the second girl)
>>37367021How manny currency do we have? Do we have triad lines with the vampires now?
Rolled 92 (1d100)>>373670262 currency for 1 time use and you'll have to picture the target before opening the door.They should be beyond it.>>37367057Check stats up top.not quite yet.
>>37367026You weren't the one who suggested Richard were you?Also I kind of want that reusable group summoning key, so the next time we have currency we can summon them to buy anything we want.
Rolled 100 (1d100)>>37367021Have our band of traders talk with the ekeybef to lower the price Get a key that unlocks any doorGet a key that makes a door where there where none (so we can get in to the golem work shop)Get mineing supply if they have anyGet beerMake triad agreement with them for them to come back every now and then.
>>37367125Oh shit. nice one
Rolled 72 (1d100)>>37367125mfw penny pinching peddlers.mfw those fuckers are apparently REALLY good at their job...and the traders didn't see it coming at all.New prize for booze 1 currency.New price for mining supplies 1 currency.new price for key that will create doors 1 currency for 1 time use, 2 for multiple charges, and 3 for reusable.Key that unlocks any door 5 for 1 currency single use, 1 for multiple charges, 2 for reusable.The traders have been convinced so hard that they have established an outpost at our location.They will carry basic goods and will be available for advance orders.Poor Peddler special unit spawned.
>>37367228Spend1 Currency for Booze1 Currency for Mining supplies3 for the create a door reusable.Vote
>>37367272Sure.>>37367228So what do you mean by special unit spawned? Did they get a officer or something?
>>37367272Support.Can we do normal actions now?
Rolled 76 (1d100)>>37367458The of thumb is this.All officers are considered a special unit but not all special units are considered officers.
Rolled 64 (1d100)>>37367272Purchases acquired.Actions?Just to warn you the morale on your military units for a few of them its dropping really low...
Rolled 69 (1d100)>>37367555Just one thing left to square off.Will the vampire soldiers be willing to accept blood as payment for fighting a single battle with us?After we secure them, I'd like to propose.Action:Men, break out the booze and dine well, for tommorow we ATTACK!War Action:March our armies to action, we'll clear out a patch of forrest near the vamps and set up a secondary base there.
>>37367555I'm still game for civilian recruitment drive. Unless the new adviser or old have something different in mind.>>37367694The troops can't get drink and then attack, unless you want both to happen at the same time. Then that would be a bad move most likely.
Rolled 61 (1d100)>>37367765Well, I did say tomorrow as in the day after.and hey, drinking and fighting worked great for the bloodsnows I think.Actually, yes, let's activate Richard's abilities>Identify: Able to determine rough stats and other info from target. Including possibility of turning them and weaknesses/strengths.Where do the troops need a morale boost the most?
Rolled 23 (1d100)>>37367694They would require a LOT of blood for that to work.>>37367694Troops already hit monsters at the edge of the forest.>>37367765"Hm you got questions," asked the new adviser. "Oh and its Richard by the way...hey say Valeria since we are the only ones in this little council so far how about we spend some alone time together to so that way you can update me?""Get los-...wait really?""Yes considering the only other ones with anything remotely like a brain are either obsessed with tactics or magic I am sure you can use the break and I need the info...""I uh oh....okay."
>>37367905Have Richard see what troops have the lowest moral. Once we know we will want to disband some.Soon (or now) we will have a celebration because we have new ally's. Beer will be drunk and affect aora will be used to make every one enjoy themselves even more.

>>37368197Hmm? And here I was thinking that heroic sacrifices countered critfails, unless you rolled a critfail ON the heroic sacrifice declaration.Like, say, how the Gearhead's chaff-bomb went off well despite the action critfailing...because of a heroic sacrifice.
Rolled 86 (1d100)>>37368197>>37368210I was about to say thanks for the 5 in currency. Action: Get down to business and have a meeting about the troops. We need to deal with the morale and inform the new guy. Have him get some insight on the troops and Identify any problems or just good things to know.War-Action: Troops can't run on blood alone and we need supply. Go on a recruitment drive of the near by area. Gain support through actions of clearing the area if need be.While they action hopefully we can gain more insight.
Rolled 32 (1d100)>>37368298Vote
Rolled 53 (1d100)>>37368298He can only identify one unit per a turn which do you wish to see the details of?
>>37368298Why not get some...'protection money' from the local towns that we've been keeping safe with our patrols and such.
Rolled 33 (1d100)>>37368411Hmm, we can do that. Offer to make regular sweeps for payment.I vote >>37368411 as a modification to the war action of >>37368298
>>37368399Scourges, we will need to know how to fully use them in the wooden areas for later.>>37368411Because we need civilians for day to day work to boost morale and not money at the moment.
>>37368471Why not both?
>>37368520I'm sure that would not help us. "O hey join our war machine and give us money as well." is what I assume it would sound like. If I'm wrong by all means change it. But asking for money and people sounds like something a lord would do. Problem being we are not their lord. Once we are that will be less of a problem.
Rolled 81 (1d100)>>37368588Hmm.We need money cause were broke.We need people because we like a big military.This feels so much like first world problems. . .But you know, Richard DOES have that lvl 9 Charisma. I think he could pull it off!
Rolled 58 (1d100)>>37368632Which he sorta needs to getaway with seducing monsters...Unlike a bard he likes to call afterward.Like a bard he ain't interested in relationships though.Anyway have fun solving those first two problems.
>>37368683What do our advisers...advise we do in order to ameliorate our morale, population/civilian, and food/tool problems?
Rolled 96 (1d100)>>37368298>>37368632Richard has a good idea of how to work with people.In towns where he feels it's easier to get money, get money.In towns where he thinks it's easier to get civilians, recruit.If he thinks he can pull of both, do it.That's my vote
Rolled 31 (1d100)>>37368796I'll support this, but activate "Lowdown" in order to boost effectiveness. Also, combo his/Valeria's "Identify" abilities to better assess the towns.
Rolled 65 (1d100)>>37368298Backing this>>37368837Backing the activation of abilities>>37368796Backing the modification
Rolled 29 (1d100)>>37368853I concur.
Rolled 72 (1d100)>>37368197... hm Action: With Richard let us tag team to gain protection money from the local towns that we've been keeping safe with our patrols and/or any other means to improve income. Valeria can come as well for advice and the like. While gaining money see about using Identify to turn some people to our side.War-Action: Go on a recruitment drive of the near by area. Gain support through actions of clearing the area if need be.
Rolled 49 (1d100)>>37368853Yep.
Rolled 91 (1d100)>>37368298If we want people we can just have the triad caravans that are now going to and from our bace talk about "how safe it is and how there is land that can be farmed" to a some of the other caravans, merchants, and customers. Word will get around and will stay mostly within the lower class. They will come here seeking new hope for a good life of honest work.
>>37368877That won't work. The towns already are protected by bands of mercs 10,000 strong. We would be nothing. Instead have him spread the word that our bace is a good new trading stop, and that there is good farm land that can be worked for those willing to join is, he can spread this in the lower to low middle class, they are the most likely to come and they won't be missed by the towns they leave.
>>37368932Nah, reread that post. There are plenty of ignored towns/villages/hamlets/etc.Though we should probably specify to only recruit from the small, ignored places instead of anywhere big. Knowing how competently our men tend to act in these quests the action as it's currently phrased wouldn't turn out well.
Soon we should have the dwarves with the new mining tools start to mine the fuck out of the earth stone quarry. We need that stone, our bace is still a busted up peace of shit.
>>37368932Just trying to rework the action into what people wanted. I'm a bit tired, if you can rework it again I would grateful.>>37368887Also true.>>37368968That's the hope, but we can't hold off the morale problem anymore.
Hey Genie, can you put a little dot where the Vampires are?
Rolled 83 (1d100)>>37368877>>37368837>>37368796>>37368411>>37368298ONLY GO TO THE SMALL IGNORED TOWNS! The ones not protected by large bands of mercs. We don't want to infringe on there territory
>>37368986For the low moral we should have The Great Hunt. We all ready killed done of the monsters in the forest. But this time lets go all out and slougher them. Let the men have there fill of battle. Have them take the hide of every monster they kill. The one with the most hides wins. If we still have beer we will drink it when the hunt is done. Have any of our heros with any ability that will help determine the value and use of the pelts and what monsters can be eaten. We will keep the ones that can be eaten for food and sell the rest of the monster body's to the traders for what ever we can convince them to give us for them.It will be great. I suggest burning something when we do it.
>>37369109Now now, even the Vampires admit that monsters make a decent buffer out of anything. But I have a feeling we're never going to run out of monsters anytime soon.When I get an idea of where the Vampires are, we'll do something like a great hunt and set up a secondary base close by the Vampires to easily facilitate trade.I wonder if Fantasy monsters are still impossibly hugebig like the Post apoc ones are.
Rolled 92 (1d100)>>37369129Of course there are!I have the 'legit' excuse of MAGIC for these ones even!Basically Monster Hunter tier monsters are a legit thing here also REAL dragons not the wyvren bullshit that is being pushed lately...I mean for fucks sake they can't even do a Eastern style and I can't recall the last time I saw a Western one...
>>37364544>>37369186Do we get a boon and/or fate point for coming up with a good one?
>>37369265We need a name that represents our binding ideology, our dogma, our niche, what makes us us.
Rolled 57 (1d100)>>37369012>>37368877 >>37368837 >>37368796 >>37368411 >>37368298 Added modifier. Stick to towns that are currently unprotected. Also have him talk about the second half of this post >>37368932.
>>37369300Dicking around Chased battlesWonder warriorsF.u.b.a.r. fantasy Of war and peaceAny of those sound good?
Rolled 77 (1d100)>>37369414All of this. I give my vote to all of this.
>>37369466No no no, an in game name for who we refer to ourselves as. not the title to the quest, that's already settled.
Rolled 45 (1d100)>>37369481Wait what is then?Can I get the whole idea for actions?Notice a bunch of ideas and adjustments flying around.
>>37369109Only sell the meat to the ekeybef traders (probably as dog food or fertilizer. Or just as the real thing. What ever gets us the most money) then we take all the bones from all the monsters we killed and sell them to the undead merchant that took all the weapons and armer from the slaughtered elves. We sell them and getting a good price for them because we talk about how much he can sell them to the skeleton that's crazy about bones for. Then we buy from the undead merchant all the armer/weapons from the slaughtered elves using all the money we got from selling the bones (unless we can buy all of it with out using all the bone money) we will get a good price by talking up how damaged the armer/weapons are after the slaughter and how they can't have been all that good seeing as the elves got slaughtered in the first place.Then we take the new weapons/armor we bought. We clean them off. We repair them to the best of our abilities. We outfit our army with them to all who are able to use them. The weapons will probably all be used but a lot of the armer won't fit the monsters and dwarves with us so there will be leftover armer. Then we sell the left over armer to the ekeybef traders and get a good price for them by talking up how rare it is to find eleven anything around here (because they are all dead).Boon. After all that trading we will have better armer/weapons and more money. And I haven even begone talking about what we will do with the monster hides.

Rolled 79 (1d100)>>37369628The agreement is thisAction: Get down to business and have a meeting about the troops. We need to deal with the morale and inform the new guy.

Valeria can come as well for advice and the like she will use her identify ability to see about turning some people to our side.That is the actions after all the modifications.
Rolled 81 (1d100)>>37369748>>37369757This is the hole thing adjusted.
Rolled 71 (1d100)>>37369757Vote.I'm going to bed. Cya all in the morning.
>>37369650>>37369109How manny turns will this all take? The hunt will be one ( I think we should use a boon to make it one of legend) them the harvesting of the meat and bone. Then all the trading might take just 1 with lots of dialogue and haggling.
Rolled 17 (1d100)>>37369757As i said before he unlike your other adviser can only identify one troop at a time. You need to choose one and only one.
>>37369650Oh also with all the trading we are doing with the (god dam it can we change there name to a real one) trading caravan others merchants and caravans will see there new merchandise and will want to make an outpost here as well. Then with the increase in trade here more civilians will come to join us looking for a new chance for a better life.Dam do I thing this all is a good plan. Anyone see flaws in it?
Rolled 61 (1d100)>>37369917Oh let me fix thatAction: Get down to business and have a meeting about the troops. We need to deal with the morale.

>>37369925>>37369650>>37369109That. Is a dam fine plan. Someone should write fluff for it between the game days so it will be even better!
Rolled 82 (1d100)>>37369748Rolling to see if our OTHER Didrikson is having a nice time on his adventure
Rolled 49 (1d100)>>37369958Vote.
>>37370020I will tommorrow after I wake up, even set in in action format.
>>37370020I could write some fluff for all of if.Genie if you could give me some info on the local monsters that would help me write it. And some info on the undead merchant to. I can fill in the rest.I am going to fluff the fuck out of the poor peddlers (needs a better name).
>>37370078You fluff the hunt I'll fluff the trading. With my hard on for capitalism it should be great!
>>37370119Hey go for it man.Thing about Genie is he's particularly fond of the infinite variability of monsters concerning size and shape.
>>37370159That's why I'm focused more on fluffing the post hunt trading. The moderate boon can be used to make the hunt an amazing success.
>>37370201I already have over a page if fluff and it's not even half way done
>>37370201A boon should be used on a permanent modifier to the civ, not a one time event.Why aren't we using boons anyway? Isn't it better to use them now so we profit from them in the longrun, like an investement that compounds, instead of later? or worse, not use them at all and we're dead.
>>37372017I believe it's because we have a hard time agreeing on things. With the three boons we have and the 3 fate points a lot could be done. For instance say we use the 1 minor boon on the farm. Fluff that shit to be a super farm because of the ashes enriching the soil. With a tiny bit of wild magic giving a special crop.That major boon could be used for making a mass undead Alliance. We have the vamp and could base a event off of that or the little lady.The uber boon could be used to make a town upgrade for undead and living working better together. Say something happen after the new Alliance. Like our clerics, magi and members of the undead formed a master plan to imbue the keep to allow undead and living to Live In harmony. This could mean our undead can get stronger with our hurting our people. Plus something that big of undead and living people working in harmony could be good for our rep.
>>37373674So although I hate to say it use a fate point on the great hunt? It need to go well and I can fluff the trading after it but the hunt needs to be a good one
>>37375104Page 9? The fuck guys?
>>37376303I'm at work.
>>37376311I'm about to go to work. Still writing fluff tho
Working here too, but watching on phone bump
>>37373674I'd say the Uber Boon and/or Major Boons would be better spent on finding some sort of lucrative resource within our territory. How quickly our civilian problem would solve itself if the dwarves were wandering around...and then discovered an intact, abandoned mine full of MAGIC JEWELS.
Genie if I can get some info on the undead merchant that would be nice. Otherwise I'll just wing it
>>37368197Mmkay, let's take a look at our problems right now...>Food: Below AverageCan be fixed by improving the fishery, and/or rebuilding the farms (possibly burning a boon on either to doubly-improve it, Delim's fluff-suggestion for improving the farm is particularly good).>Water: AverageFine for now with our current population, we'll want to set up aquifers or something soon though.>Morale: LowCan be fixed by acquiring 'companionship' and civilians so that our troops don't have to do menial tasks. Also throwing parties and appeasing our more warlike military forces by...building an arena or something? Dunno, but whores and booze would probably help.>Medicine: LowIf we improve the farm then we can likely establish an apothecary's garden off of it easily.>Health: LowWill be improved if we address our medicine, food, and water issues.>Fuel: PoorWhat? Fuel for what? (we can get lumber if needbe)>Defenses: NilNeeds to be addressed, can do this by getting our quarry properly running.
>>37380045An excellent to do list, although right now I believe we have consensus and are waiting for Genie. But it's an offday for her, I'm at work, so I can't help much.
>>37379554Even better would be if we get some monies to buy Dwarven mining equipment...Then we burn a fate point on "establishing a mine" in our territory...And we burn the Uber Boon to spawn all sorts of goodies down there.Finding an abandoned mine is asking for Genie to fuck us up.
We also shouldn't forget that we have a thread survival bonus or 2 to burn...that Genie forgot about.
>>37380904We have mining equipment. It was purchased cheap with my crit.And don't worry about money. After the fuck ton of fluff I'm writing we will be good on cash for a bit. You guys are going to love Harold Hill and Mark Maker. The leaders of the poor peddlers.Question about fluff. How much of it becomes in game real? Not just the characters but events as well?
>>37382148Depends. Fluff (for practical purposes) grants bonuses to the roll of the action it's for. Just be careful to not overstep your bounds with anything too extravagant and it'll all happen.
>>37382215And if I do overstep them? I mean the stuff I have them doing involves them conning and talking them selves in to a good deal. I mean the only time we saw them work was a huge success so I thought they could pull off>>37369650Pretty well. I'm writing out the hole thing. Is that overstepping?
>>37382320Just glance through these for an excellent example of how to fluff an action.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/35962494/http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/35854976/ You can specify your plan, and have your Poor Peddler-leaders talk about how they're /planning/ to do all those things...just don't assume anything will turn out as you plan.
>>37382414So if a make it that the hole thing is actually just the main trader day dreaming about how all of that will go down as he walks to his first con. Will that be good. I don't want to rework the hole story.
>>37382148A con man/trader named Harald Hill? That's a reference to the music man. I fucking love that movie.
>>37382545Yeah, that'd probably? be fine.
>>37384389Really it depends on Genie's mood when s/he comes around.And might I remind you, Genie, that new blood is hard to get and that you should encourage people to fluff things if you want your job to be easier.
>>37384422I would attempt fluff if I had a better feel for the fluff style wanted. Otherwise you people will only be getting random drawings from me.
>>37384994That is better than nothing>>37384422 he. Genie is a he. I know because reasons
>>37385233It your heart of hearts you know it to be true.
Rolled 24 (1d100)>>37370119Be warned apparently those poor peddlers are apparently AMAZING at negotiating like damn.>>37370119Well you got small, tiny, large, huge, and fukhuge variety.Monsters can vary quite a bit anywhere from magical critters, evil monsters, to stuff from monster hunter.The undead merchant whose name I have forgotten smells heavily of spices(amazing he actually not only doesn't he smell bad he actually smells quite good). He is covered in wraps and a semblage of fancy layers of clothing with jewelry mixed in.He has one glowing eye while the other is covered with a metal plate studded with jewels that flicker. His glowing eye is deep dark blue.The merchant apparently makes his rounds and can easily deal with the living or dead.>>37370159Aye...>>37381782uh...fuck really?>>37384422I always encourage fluff. Its actually a easy way to make special or officer units spawn.
Rolled 50 (1d100)>>37386376>>37369001Able to put that mark where the Vampires are yet Genie? Also vote >>37369958
I hope game day, tomorrow, will be moving. We have been having some slow threads lately.>>37386480A problem I had with that action is we know some of the main problems with morale are them having to do normal people's jobs. That is unless something has changed, but it's unlikely.
Rolled 57 (1d100)>>37386909Never mind I forgot about somethings. I was thinking we could end up gaining less info because the new adviser is going to gain money. We could just do a new action for him later for that.>>37369958Backing. I hope the unprotected excludes the ones we protect. The ones we don't touch may not have a reason to join us and would limit our gain.
>>37387027... shit and Valeria doesn't have the active identify ability, that's Richards. So I don't that will work for turning.Sorry for all the post ... it's a pain to collect thoughts on off days.
Quick question. Is there a limit to the size of the fluff? At this poin it's looking more like a short story...
>>37389214Ok I'm done with the first draft. Also bump
>>37389214>>37389707Quality is often better than quantity, the former is more important than the latter, but if you can have both then by all means.
I recommend we use the thread survival boon on the great hunt. Also only post/bump when needed. We just need this thread to last another 5-6 hours
Rolled 46 (1d100)>>37391035Pretty much.Proper righting can net you certain boons even and its certainly been done before. Usually during civ creation.
Rolled 22 (1d100)>>37393942Bumping with adventure dice for the other Didrikson
>>37393942Still waiting on that update, and hoping for a little map edit bump
Rolled 33 (1d100)>>37395872>>37393942More adventure dice bumps!
Rolled 75 (1d100)>>37397719>>37395584Ccccombo Breaker!
>>37393942Well I hope what I have is good then
Rolled 54 (1d100)>>37369958OH god not ANOTHER long arse posting...fuck.Well I'll do the second part first...since it be faster....well fuck nevermind about that too....quest mode type for each and they be longs...ugh. First I am gonna get meself something to eat hadn't eaten literally all fucking day.
>>37399206Can we like.. get the cliff notes or something? I'm really ready to get back to action
>>37399652Come now, surely you wouldn't mind Genie's writefaggotry?We are getting back into civ action as is! With new civilians I'm hoping we can finally set up that secondary base in the forest soon.
>>37399701there is way too much data to absorb already, plus the fact that we virtually have no idea what our troops can do. We need to regroup and find a task for our army, because we currently have an army with a small civ attached and a bunch of heroes that seemingly could care less about the affairs of the army and would rather galavant off in the woods playing with naked chicks and vampires
>>37399821I have war plans already, there are endless amount of monsters to kill and land to live in with the death of the Elves.I just wish Genie would update the map of where the Vampires are so I can properly draw some reasonable border expansions
>>37399838Honestly I would rather dissolve most of the army and focus on our base for a bit. Aside from the fishery we have made next to no progress on infustructur. We need to get our dwarves mining, and rune crafting already.
>>37399838They aren't actually on the map but rather towards the bottom and to the side beyond it.Anyway I will be thinking up something to write, gotta eat, and got some errands to run.
>>37399946We have a free war action for a reason. We can use the civilian action to improve infrastructure, and the war action to keep our military occupied in useful ways.
>>37399946also before we get to mining we should work on some of the infrastructure issues in >>37380045
Rolled 4 (1d100)>>37399206>>37369958"Ahem now we shall start the meeting about the troops...and in attendance is...well only three people really?""Well you never did buildup a council now did you," puts out Valeria."Hey don't look at me I am new," points out Richard the new guy."Well...fine be that way," so states the big boss upon leaving muttering about crappy advise and might as well look at the troops.Look Around activated.Grunts appeared rather neutral but tired of dealing with lesser non military duties.Clerics would like some proper religious channels and less duties.Dwarven alchemists and runesmiths want proper materials for their work.Dwarven troops and snipers are deeply unhappy with having foul goblins and riff raff among them.Dwarven sappers are bored...also would like some proper supply channels rationing sucks arse.The katonines seem...oddly happy. Apparently they don't mind current affairs one bit.Scourges are tired of waiting in dark crevasses of the canyons. They want to hurry up and prove yourself or else.Turncoat Levies are tired of being bullied by all the other units, forced to do tasks, not looting, and are exhausted. They are the closest to breaking and would prefer to being released if they aren't gonna do any duties...The heavy infantry are satisified but bored.The oozes...are well oozes.Beasts could use proper facilities...Hobgoblins are wishing for expansion and are sick of the nearby dwarves...strangely their views towards humans have improved quite recently for some reason...you have no idea what it could be...Barbarians are tired of lesser duties and unless they get action would rather be released from service. Unlike the levies though they aren't quite at the breaking point.Ruffians would like some proper action..."So...how do we deal with morale then?""uh...make them happy," simply states Richard."Figure out the what is causing low morale and then try to fix it," points out Valeria.
Rolled 8 (1d100)>>37401478Veteran Magi and puppeteers would like proper facilities and supplies...Felled Fighters are bored...The Night Order Knights desire some proper action and banditry. They state that the rumors are proving quite disappointing see the lack within leader.
>>37401521>>37401478Eh, fuck it. Let's go loot find someone/thing evil...and burn a fate point to burn their cities and take all their stuff.
Rolled 57 (1d100)>>37401521Troops have little luck in recruiting from nearby towns and villages that are unprotected.

>>37401554We're down to three of those. I want to save them.What I DO want to do is use our boon sooner than later. We have a habit of not ever using our boons until it's too late and we're dead.
Rolled 78 (1d100)>>37401579At--at least i remembered the turn one...>>37401661Meh problem is boons offer too much freedom of choice so no one can ever agree on anything.
>>37401661So here's what I'll propose. I like our big and giant army, it's the safest security we have at the moment.I want us to use our Uber Boon to give us a MASSIVE bonus to internal cohesion and patriotic discipline. Such to the point that we don't ever have to worry about units breaking off and deserting, and they'll stomach any civilian duty or lack of action with a smile.The Major Boon I want to go towards a construction/upgrading bonus, we're going to build everything we want and need faster than we've ever before.The normal Boon I want to go towards I want towards recruitment/alliances by being great at convincing people to do the things we want them to do, and working out deals.
Rolled 67 (1d100)>>37380045>>37380045Basic 1Turncoat Levies are hereby disbanded and relieved of military service, with honors.Dwarves both troop, civilian, and sappers are given the new tools and told to go dig for new mining operations. We'll use the new metals in the creation of materials and tools for later projects, and it will get them away from the Goblins.War ActionWe have only but scratched the edge of the forest of monsters, this time we'll exterminate them.In particular we'll set up a forward base towards the forest and our vampiric allies on the river, giving us access to it's waterways and as a buffer against further incursions from the forest.It will be as a GREAT HUNT, and the one who gathers the most hides shall be excellently rewarded.Burn the nests, kill the rest.In particular bring in hte Scourges, the Ruffians, the Felled Fighters, and Night Order Nights, the Heavy Infantry, the Barbarians, and the Hoboblins (particularly distance them from the Dwarves).Split our groups into two forces under our Commander and Richard, and make a two pronged attack from the north and south. With two armies and two leaders it will be easier to maneuver the army, and we'll trap them in a pincer assault.Skin and hide every beast, destroy every nest, burn down the area where we plan to set up a secondary township (later)>See map for borders of the Great Hunt and where the secondary town will be set up>>37401792Also self cast vote onto my boon proposal
>>37402051>>37401792A bold motion indeed anonIs smart anon around to give his commentary?
Rolled 49 (1d100)>>37402051Nice work anon. Vote.
Hmph, just remembered both Delim and Smartanon work thursdays. Pity.
>>37401792We also have a thread survival boon. Use one of the boons on the great hunt
>>37369109This great hunt. I don't have fluff for the hunt it's self but I have a fuck ton of fluff for this>>37369650 like pages of it We should save the uber boon for something better. Use the moderate boon one makeing the great hunt one of legend
>>37403008I like the great hunt idea
Rolled 68 (1d100)>>37402051Burn the moderate boon on the hunt. May we find manny a creature to kill. My monsters fall before us. Our troops will be satisfied. May we find in the nests of the monsters items of great power and value. Long live the brotherhood. Long live the general. Also Collect all the bodies of the monsters as well. It's part of the fluff a made.
Rolled 24 (1d100)>>37403193>>37402051Vote. Use the moderate boon on the hunt. Songs will be song of it for generations about the greatness of it.
>>37402051>>37403193One rolled 67I rolled 68Small causality. But thereAlso don't forget to keep the bodies of the monsters killed.
>>37403261>>37403193Can we use the thread survival boon on that instead?Also what about the Uber Boon and the Major Boon and Normal Boon ideas >>37401792
Rolled 6 (1d100)>>37402051Levies disbanded.Dwarves are given tools and given the simple command to 'go start new mining operations'. They haven't been seen since.Forces are brought in and divided between the two before being unleashed...now lets see how the resistance is...
>>37403390Use the moderate boon on the hunt. Hold on to the other boons tell after it and the trading after the hunt. We will see what is needed then

>>37403500Shit. Which one is slesh?
>>37403500>>37403590Slesh the Slaughterer, I need to go back and read what she is. Currently neutral with the Vampires.I suggest we entreat her and welcome her with a victory feast.
Rolled 75 (1d100)>>37403625Is she the one that slaughters elves?Any way. Let her join in the slaughter. Let her compete. Let's see what great beast she can kill. Great her as an honored guest >>37403500
Rolled 93 (1d100)>>37403590Slesh got lured over thanks to what you did to the monsters...>>37403684Yes.She apparently REALLY hates them for some reason...except for Silvia she LUVS Silvia because BFFs.Weird considering Silvia is a banshee elf...
Rolled 81 (1d100)>>37403625>>37403684Vote. All are welcome to join the hunt.Catcha veldi
Rolled 14 (1d100)>>37403684So...your still not done with the hunt then?
>>37403748I thought she came in as it was happening. If the boon was spent on the hunt, will it still be in place if it continues?
>>37403748How are the troops morale after the victory, is it high? I hope it is.
Rolled 29 (1d100)>>37403748If that 14 it the monsters resistance than yes. This hunt is to be one of legend. With great beasts and monsters brought low.
>>37403794It was largely done by the time she showed up.A boon burn wasn't confirmed you can choose to do so for this turn. In which case the hunt will be extended as for how Slesh will react though...>>37403798It certainly made them feel better but the underlying issues remain...
>>37403862In that case. Ask her if she would like the hunt to continue. Or if she found it satisfying.
Rolled 31 (1d100)>>37403748I like to think we can turn this into a event/friendly competition. Ask if she would like to join us in our hunt. Most kills gets most of the spoils. Otherwise just greet her and offer some spoils as a sign of respect for hunting on her lands.
>>37403896>>37403862Yes, welcome her as her title deserves, I'm sure our commander and new advisor are more than capable.
>>37403903We weren't on her lands. I thought we where on unclaimed land near her land
>>37404001I would still like to offer something. Mainly because we don't know if she was about to hunt as well.Also I'm home and going to update the pastebin with the names we learned, fate point burn (I believe we are at 3 now) and what the troops want. Let me know if there is anything else wanted.
>>37404170We have another thread survival boon. Can we use it to make slesh not pissed at us but only here you have fun in the hunt of the monsters of the forest?
Waiting on Genie writing that update on our two most charismatic figures greeting Slesh.
>>37404359You sure you wanna waste an action on that?Hence why I asked about the boon burn.
>>37404494Greetting isn't action. . .that's fluff. We wanna know what she's here for.
>>37404494I thought it was continuing an action.
>>37404528We don't have an action planned yet.I want to talk to Slesh for a bit first, before working on our next move.I'm thinking we start building that secondary town and then keep working our to-do list, while continuing to clear out more monsters.
>>37404527Obviously she was lured here by the Slaughter its sorta her thing. Shit draws her in like a magnet.>>37404556What do you want to ask?
>>37404494Also no boon was burned. Once the hunt is over I'll start posting my post hunt trading fluff
>>37404527>>37404494Just have our charismatic advisors say anything along the lines of "Welcome oh great Slesh, I see you have heard the call of our slaughter."
>>37404577If she found the hunt satisfying, and if she wants to join in. It might be winding down but there is still time for her to compete
>>37404577>>37404627"We're even considering continuing the hunt beyond, to eradicate the monsters and remove them as a threat for generations to come.
>>37404582They just know she is in vicinity.Remember she only met the boss and NOT your forces who wont likely be friendly...She is being rather curtious with her thoughts at the moment.>>37404627Can always burn something if you want to carry it on or just devote another action to it.
>>37404577Hey Genie, just to clarify, we should have:1 Uber Boon from new years1 Major Boon from new years1 Normal Boon from new yearsand 1 Thread Survival boon right?>>37404725>Remember she only met the boss and NOT your forces who wont likely be friendly...Why won't they be friendly? Will they at least be disciplined enough to be civil while she's in our camp?
>>37404725If she won't be a problem then I say end the hunt. Gather the body's and the hides. Inform the men that if the see her show her the upmost respect.
>>37404793Why end the hunt, it's not like we have anything else to do but keep slaughtering monsters with our war action and give the troops the action they been missing.
>>37404763Hm...I didn't give any boon upgrades for new years instead I gave you a boosted hero rez/summon.1 thread survival is a yes.
>>37404763>>37404793Have the men be civil. If she just ants to look around at the slaughter than fine. But it's time for the hunt to be done. And I want to see this fluff causality is going on about
>>37404878They where from the x-miss stuff. When I bought more boons and fate points
>>37404925hm...I recall just offering a bonus upgrade to it but very well then.
>>37404925>>37404878Oh yeah, we never did decide the Basic and Major boon from the christmas gifts.Also the Uber Boon refers to the Donation Boon.
>>37404997I too that offer. With the second 100$ I gave you>>37404864True. Burn the thread survival boon then. Continue he fight, let the men have there fill. And tell the men to be civil if the see slash
>>37405021Alright. Let me put that in action format. Gimme a sec.
>>37405032Why not use another turn? Is there a reason for not doing that?
>>37405075That's what I mean, I'm going to include the survival boon use in the great hunt action for next turn.
>>37405137Oh. Carry on
Rolled 59 (1d100)Basic 1We have just cleared out a large expanse of area and killed all the nest. Now it is time to HOLD it, and prevent new monsters from ever returning to lay new ones.Burn out the trees along the river banks, and set up watchtowers behind the new tree lines with large lamps to keep an eye out, as well as stong wooden walls.The Hobgoblins want us to expand, we have expanded, put them to use holding our newest expansions as a garrison force.In addition, our beasts now have lots of room in the recently cleared forest to roam, and can be put as guard dogs to further make sure the monsters do not return.Let us prevent them from ever coming back.War ActionOur 2 leaders did admirably on the hunt, why stop now, we shall keep the momentum going. Regroup our forces into one great force, still under the command of our leaders. Two armies working in conjunction. They are to cross the river bank and sweep around the other end, slaughtering all monsters in their wake.This way they'll also help in ensuring the monsters are driven away from our new territory, making the garrison forces job of patroling night and day to preven their return much easier.Burn the survival boon on the next phase of the Great Hunt!
Rolled 55 (1d100)>>37405369There we go. Vote
Rolled 76 (1d100)>>37405369May our expansion bring new wealth and power.Also updated, hopefully everything is in place.>http://pastebin.com/ACzYYtBZAs always let me know if more things need to be added or changes.
Rolled 69 (1d100)>>37405369Don't forget to keep the body's and hide. It's Important I guess.
>>37405481Add Dick Masterson to the possible names of the general. We don't know his real one. Only names he had said in his sleep.
Rolled 63 (1d100)>>37405369Trees been burnt and towers constructed by the hobgoblins meanwhile the rest of the troops carried on after leaving behind the boars in their care.As for the second action...lets see here.
>>37405565Hmmm. There putting up a fight now.
>>37405523I would like us to agree on a name, but yeah I can add it into the pool of them.
>>37405628I'm liking the idea of him not having one anymore. Fuck it. Why not call him anon
>>37405661Because we have to treat this as real life and not just a game, aka surreal or a mix of the two. On a thread that would work, but unlikely to work when we have to debate in game with other characters.
Rolled 59 (1d100)...well fuck you too 4chan making we lose my entire damned post right when i was trying to post it.
>>37405730Oh no. I bet it was an amazing post. We need a new thread

>>37405821How unfortunate. Oh well, more for the survivors I suppose.Time for our men to regroup and resupply. We have enough monster meat to feed us for a LONG time.Also we need to establish the vestiges of our new settlement, so we'll set up camp there.Let's put that in action form.
Rolled 21 (1d100)>>37405821Forces...were hit by sudden surges in water flow, even whirlpools, and all the while monsters struck at them from below.Biting of limbs.Dragging them under...and worse.Finally after breaching into the forest I troops walked right into a brutal ambush by the awaiting monsters...as if they KNEW we were coming.That was when our troops rallied and attempted to break past the blockade...that they succeeded in.Only to be regularly ambushed and bled dry with the constant fighting as they advanced. It wasn't long before a retreat was called for.So our troops attempted to push back across the river all in order to getaway from vengeance of the monsters.
>>37405882When is it time for the trading? I have lots of fluff for it. Lots
>>37405904We don't have any money though, and we need to regather our strength.
Rolled 79 (1d100)>>37405871Nope its what you get for not doing it roight.also stacks and synergy be a bitch.This can go both ways.>>37405904Best be posting before thread drops anon.
>>37405821Wow that is a lot of damage and with the thread boon on top. I guess we should of scouted more.>>37405889And it just keeps coming.
>>37405919We be getting money soon>>37405920Ok. Won't there be a new thread?
>>37405920>Nope its what you get for not doing it roight.Any hints on what we did wrong?
That sucked. . .but at least not like previous post apoc games where 200 deaths would essentially mean our death.It's still nice to be playing Big Civ again.
>>37405920Peddler prodigy chapter 1 You wake up early with the dawn. Time was money after all, and you where not one to waist money. You are Harold Hill the leader of the poor peddlers, you like the name because it makes others think less of you. It's easier to get a good deal out of them when they don't think your capable of it.After you morning meal of bland something you thing is soup you head off to see the boss man. Val told you yesterday to see him, something about the hunt.Making your way to the center of the keep you see you coworker and partner in "not" crime. His name was Mark Maker. A short almost round man with a face like a pit bull. As opposed to your own talk boney self."Morning Harold, you on your way to see da boss?" Mark said. You never really liked it when he talked. Mostly because he sounded like he was fighting with his cheeks for dominance."Yes, he has a new project for us. He must have been impressed with how we handled the Ekeybef caravan" you reply in that snide way you use when you talk to those under you."Oh that was a fine bit of work that was, we bent that bloke over a crate and really gave it to him." Mark said wrestling the words outThe two of you make your way to the courtyard where you saw the boss waiting. You liked the boss. He was a good leader even if he was a bit odd when if came to women. What you didn't like was the open barrels of meat and gore along with crates of something next to him.Greeting you with a smile and a firm hand shake the boss said "Good morning Harold morning Mark. Did you both sleep well?""Well enuf" you say in cynical tone. Although you liked the boss you never liked being around him, it always felt like someone was watching you."Oh I slept like a new born babe. Even had a nice dream about... Err on second thought I'll leave out what it was about" Mark said not making eye contact with the boss. Must have been a sex dream then. Those always made Mark feel guilty around the boss. 1
>>37405984"Glad to hear it. Because I have a big job for you guys." He gestures to the barrels of gore and the crates of what you can now see as bones."I want you guys to sell this, this is all the meat from the monsters we can't eat. I took the liberty of having the bones removed to be sold to the undead merchant." "The what?" You say looking at the boss with a deadpan look"The undead merchant, don't worry I worked everything out with the vampires and the zombies. They know you are coming and they won't give you any trouble. I'll even have a squad escort you to feel safe" the boss said grinning like fool. It was odd working with him. He seems to make the strangest of friends."Why are we selling it to the dead guy?" Mark asked"Well recently the vampires slaughtered a hole bunch of elves. Hundreds possibly thousands. And entire army. The undead merchant got all the armer and weapons." Replied boss"Ok... Ok. So what do you want done with the... I didn't know meat could even be that color" you say"I want you to try to sell it at to the Ekeybef" said bossSurveying the 4 dozen barrels and two dozen crates you reply "I... I'll think of something." You had no idea, but then again you preferred to wing it.You spent the next hour having your workers lode up the carts with the great hunts great leftovers. Dam dose the meat stink. Once the carts where loaded you make your way to the new trade outpost.Pulling up you see Jeffry directing the loading of a cart. The fidgety mess of a man was some how the leader of the Ekeybef caravans."Good evening Jeffry, I have got a deal for you!" You say with a winning smile and in that smooth sweet voice you use on those who your about to fist for all they are worth2
>>37406007"Oh. Err up h.hello Harold and um Mate. What do you mean by deal" The poor man was still fretful from the last time you did business with him. "We. Are about to make you a very happy man" said Mark. Mark and you where starting to walk around Jeffry as you talked. "We have something truly amazing. 4 dozen barrels of to quality fresh monster meat" you say with bravado "M.monster meat? W why would I want monster meat? That stuff is worthless?" Jeffry said confused"Worthless? Oh no no no you are mistaken sir" said Mate"Mate, I don't thing this man knows it" you say. You have an idea now and Mate was normally quick to pick of on your plans."Not a clue in his pretty little head" said Mate as he continued to circle Jeffry"What is it? What don't I know?!" Asked Jeffry in a worried tone"Oh nothing more than the incredible uses if monster meat my good man" you say.From behind Jeffry, Mate gave you a quick nod of understanding "This meat has the power and ferocity of the monsters it once was. Feed it to a dog and that dog will defend you with a monsters strength." Mate said"Use it as fertilizer and that land will fight off weeds with a monsters ferocity" you say "Oh there are so manny uses for this stuff. In fact Harold, why are we even selling it? We should keep this amazing stuff for ours selves" mate said "We should but as a favor we are giving Jeffry here this incredible deal."Jeffry was looking from you to Mark to the barrels and back to you. He was worked up and ready for final blow."And to top it all off we are going to sell it to you for half price! That's right half. Instead of 10 gold a barrel it's 5! But that's not all! If you buy all of then I'll lower it to 4 a barrel!" You say really working Jeffry up."I'll. I'll take it! I'll take them all!" Jeffry said as he walked to a chest and started counting gold."There you go 194 gold" 3
>>37406021"Now remember Jeffry. This deal is a favor. I might need to call that favor in." You say looking Jeffry in the eye.After a swallow Jeffry replies "of corse sir I understand"Poor fool, you almost felt sorry for him. Almost.One hour later you where walking through the woods with a squad of guards. Dam this place is creepy, red eyes glowing in the shadow but true to bosses word none of them attacked.You had no idea how you where going to sell bones. Before long you arrived at a wooden shack next to a cave.You walk up to the door but before you had the chance to knock it swung open. Before you is a nicely dressed corps with a top hat and a monocle over a gem studded metal plate where his left eye should be. The other eye glows a deed deep dark blue. Strangely he dose not stink. In fact you are surprised to find that he smells nicely of fine exotic spices. "Greetings!" The zombie said in a far too cheery rasp."So how manny bones do you have for me? Oh and the names Mort." "I. How do you know I'm selling bones?" You ask uneasily. This guy wasn't really creeping you out, but he was definitely not what you where used to."I can smell them!" Cheered Mort"Well then" you tried to get back in to your groove "I have just for you some very spe-""I'll give you 3 gold a crate" Mort said cutting you off. 4
>>37401792>>37402284Seems good, but the plan for the normal boon would probably be better spent giving Didrikson some sort of bonus/ability to diplomancy/recruitment/persuasion. I heartily approve of the Uber Boon plan's spirit, but you ought to phrase it...slightly differently. As it is currently phrased Genie would likely make it such that our current forces would receive everything you're asking for, but any more forces we acquire would not. On another note, this would likely synergize with the commander's leadership abilities for even greater effectiveness.The plan for the major boon is also a good one, very forward-thinking. Pity we don't have a unit we could invest it into so that it'd be more effective (generalized 'civ trait' bonuses are bound to be less potent).Haha, oh wait we do. Dwarven Sappers. I can already see the madness approaching.Investing it in the dwarven sappers really probably isn't the best idea, but damn it'll be fun.
>>37406036"3? Oh no no no, these are not normal bones. These are monster bones. Fresh at that. I wouldn't sell them for anymore than 15" you say in your sails pitch voice."5" Mort"12" you"7" Mort "10" you"8" Mort"Deal!" You said. You always loved the fast back and forth haggling. You shake on it. Morts hand felt cold and clammy with the wrappings on. You make a mental note to soak it in the strongest drink you can get to sterilize it when you get back to the keep. With the gold you got from Jeffry and the gold you got now you had a total of 384 gold coins not a bad haul. Now to see what you can get for it.Mort mark any you walk out side to supervise the unloading of the crates. "So Mort. It has come to my awareness that recently got your hand on some elf weapons and armer" Mark inquired "I got a hole bunch of that stuff. Most of it has been sold for blood money and all that's left are the rejects but you are welcome to look it over if you want." Said Mort in a rather mater of fact way. "I keep my inventory in that cave come on."You follow the cheery zombie in to the dark cave Mark pulled out a lantern that soon became the only light source. Mort walked ahead of you. From the way he never tripped or even hit his head you could guess that he could see in the dark, or at least low light, probably had something to do with the glowing eye. Eventually you enter a sprawling chamber in the cave. It is filled with stacks and stacks of crates. Mort guides you to stack near the entrance. "Here we are. This is all I got left of the elf armer and weapons. It's 50 gold a crate." Mort said. 50 gold wasn't that bad for a crate of armor. You wonder if you should push your luck. "Care if we examine the merchandise?" Asked Mark Mort gestured to the stack as if saying be my guest.5
>>37406058You stud by trying to think of what angle you where going to play this next part as Mark pried open a crate.Inside was a mismatch mess of busted up armer and slightly damaged weapons all still coated in the dried blood of the elves that died using them."You want 50 a crate for this? It little more than scrap metal. And it's covered in elf blood, do you have any idea how hard elf blood is to clean off?" You ask"Oh I know very well. Very well" Mort said in a way that reminded you of a wolf after a very satisfying meal of babies."Well I I'm not pay 50 a crate for this trash. It can't have been that good to begin with seeing as how the elves using it got sloughed. From the looks of it this armer didn't fair much better. I'll give you 25 per crate." You haggle"Trash you say? Well if it's such trash than why even buy it? If it's such trash than wouldn't you be better off getting armer and weapons elsewhere?" Mort asked calling you bluff"Call it respect for the dead" Mark dead paned.Oh shit mark. He normally know just the right thing to say but now it going to get us killed. Fuck you Mark you pug faced gnome of a man.Wait. Mort isn't killing us. He is laughing. A lot. It takes some time for Mort to stop, but when de dose he looks at you both and says"Oh thanks I needed that. I haven't had a good laugh like that in decades. Tell you what. I'll sell you guys this stuff for 20 gold a crate. But just this once." Mort said wiping what you hope is a tear from his eye."You got you self a deal" Mark and you say in unison With your 384 gold you buy 19 crates of damaged elf weapons and armer, with 4 gold left.On the way back to the keep you was Mark. "How did you know to say that back there? It wasn't even that funny but that guy acted like it was the best dam joke ever" 6
>>37406042Sappers are currently away with the rest of the dwarves digging for metal. Hopefully they'll return soon.
>>37406077"I don't know gov. I just had a feeling eh" Mark said"Odd" you state"Yep odd. So what now? We can't give the boss useless armer. The weapons are ok for the most part but we are lucky it even 1/3 of the armer is any good." Mark asked"I've been thinking about that. I might have an idea."Later that afternoon you where walking down to pub. It wasn't really a pub but one forward thinking dwarf repurpose a storage closet in to the closest thing to a pub around. "Evening Hagdor. I in a bit of a rush right now so I'll make it quick. I need a bottle of the best and strongest drink you have." You say"You planing on making another pass on the centaur gal?" Hagdor asked "No no not this time, I need it for a bribe." "Well ok then"Hagdor reaches under the counter and the sound of a lock being undone is heard. "Here we are one bottle honey gold ale aged 200 years. That will be 10 gold." Hagdor says.Shit you only have 4. Think of something fast. "How about we work something out. You sell that to me for 4 gold and I'll put in a good word to the boss. See if I can get your request for building a real pub approved" you say "You. You would do that for me sir? A real pub? It's always been my dream to run a real pub." Hagdor said starry eyed"Yes I would if you also let me and Mark drink for half price" you say"Oh you have got your self a deal" Hagdor said eagerly shaking your hand.Wonderful now that you got the ale it was time to talk to him.Stealing your self you walk to a different part of the keep. To where the sound of hammers hitting metal can be heard.There you see a giant of a dwarf. Really he was about average human size but for a dwarf that was huge.This was going to be a tuff one. Gwam was one tuff sell."Hay Gwam can we talk?"Gwam stopes hammering and looks at you. "Right well I just got a bunch of elven armer and weapons in, there in pretty bad shape. I need you to do what you can to fix them."7
>>37406092Gwam says nothing. Gwam just looks at you. Judging you.At this time Mark comes in with one of the crates on a dolly. "Ah Mark just in time. I was just telling Gwam about the new score. Isn't that right Gwam?"Gwam stares in to your sole. He says nothing, but no words are needed. You know what you did.You where starting to sweat now."Mark open that crate let the nice man see what he will be working with." You nervously gesture to Mark to hurry up, your plastered on smile starting to strain."Now I know it's not the best but you should be able to use the metal from the worst parts to fix what you can."Gwam remains silent. You see reflected in his eyes every disappointed look you father ever gave you. You where practically shaking now."A-as a show of gratitude I brought y-you this ale." You place the offering of ale before Gwam. Gwam finally looks away from you. He looks at the open crate. Then to the ale. Then to you.With a voce like thunder chastising a mountain Gwam says"One week, return then" Gwam has spoken. With that your done. You bolt from the room. "Mark have one of the men deliver the rest of the crates. I... I don't want to be around that man. He's... unsettling""I know what you mean. He is like if guilt and dread had a son, and that son was raised by a fire elemental, and then trapped that fire elemental in a forge to for ever fuel it's fires." Mark said8
>>37406114"I don't want to think about it. I'm going to bed. Gwam drained me for today. "Alright. Good night Harold."You give a half hearted wave of goodby to Mark and make you way to your room. It was an eventful day, and a successful. If your father was still alive you would tell him to suck it, because you where a better trader than him.You fall in to bed and drift off to sleep.You wake up early with the dawn. Time was money after all, and you where not one to waist money. You are Harold Hill the leader of the poor peddlers. Yesterday was the great hunt, Boss has a project for you, and you just had one of your trading dreams. Now time to see if today plays out like it. They some times do. Those days are the days you shine. 9There that's chapter 1. I'll write more when needed. I told you guys it was a lot of fluff.So did I do good?
Rolled 48 (1d100)>>37406136It...it was delicious.DELICIOUS FLUFF.All taste so gewd...
>>37406183Thank you(Why do you call all fluff delicious?)So what becomes of it. I like these characters. And I want to write more. Should I?
>>37406136>>37406114>>37406092>>37406077>>37406058>>37406036>>37406021>>37406007>>37405984Well, let me just say that while often times Brevity is the soul of wit, but I am still reading it, I must commend your effort.A little constructive tips would be that concise formatting would also be of great use, there isn't really a need to say "he asked" after following an obvious question is there?I have to say you certainly do a lot better job at clarifying who's who and who's talking than Genie does, at least.I'll keep reading and commenting, but again, you put a lot of good work into it. I hope it pays off.
>>37406183I'd say that tasted good enough to warrant us getting a free pub and some elf gear.
Rolled 85 (1d100)>>37406301That it did...and an officer unit spawn for the peddlers think you already got an special otherwise its the otherway around.One thing i will say though is that the 'undead' merchant is covered in layers of cloth and jewels. His actual skin is wrapped up as well making it near impossible to see anything.In truth the only thing that is observable about him is the glowing eye.Basically dude dresses rich as FUARK and is swagalicious.
>>37406330>One thing i will say though is that the 'undead' merchant is covered in layers of cloth and jewels. His actual skin is wrapped up as well making it near impossible to see anything.
Anyway, someone put up that new thread while I consider our next move and remake that Boon burn plan.
>>37406257Understood. In the future I will have just the name of who is talking after each line>>37406301>>37406330In game results of the fluff? Sweet! I ended it with it being a precog dream of Harold so genie could tweak anything or just have it go another way entirely.We are low on cash. Chapter two will fic that some what. I intend to write a lot. Any ideas of what you guys want to see or what to avoid would be helpful.
>>37406540If there is more game to come I can make it. I wasn't sure if Genie was down for more or not, mainly because of the changes.
>>37406601Even if there is no more game a new thread should be made. For planing of the game and of my fluff bombs
>>37406638Just let me take a shower and I'll be good to go.
>>37406655Sweet. Hopefully the new pub will get us some better moral.>>37406601You should make it. Last time I did I got a crit fail in the op and the thread died overnight. Make is before this one dies so you can link it
