>>37992156bugger, oh well Skaven in mana wastes seems like a fine choice. Even if it seems to be exactly the same as they are in Warhammer Fantasy.Oh well, I'll stay and participate, hopefully get Yetis next time. I totally imagine a pixel picture of yeti army as an army of the ski free snowmonsters.
>>37992138You are a pack of skaven who got enslaved by a demonic cult. The cultists currently are reading you aross the mana wastes searching for a suitable place to cast their ritual.You are 30 in number.You have nothing except rags and the chains that bind your hands.The cultists are running low on supplies. Most of the rats are starving. Every time a ratman dies the cultists make the other skaven to eat him in order not to waste supplies.One of your more attentative skaven overhears that the cultists are getting desperate in their search for a site to cast their ritual. You all know that if you don't do something your tribe will suffer a fate worse than death.Actions 1A. Wait for an appropriate time to strike at the Cultists. (requires a roll)B. Continue on.

The hobbits run away.16-75All the sane cultists are killed. Some of the hobbits die as collateral damage. you lose only 1/5 of your rats. Depending on roll we see how many mad cultists are dead.76-100 The cultists slaughter eachother. 1/2 of the remaining cultists are dead.

In all this chaos some of your rats get freed by one of the madmen. They quickly swarm them sane cultists and kill them all. Some of the familiars turn against their masters while others start gnawing at the hobbits.Only 5 rats die. 6 cultists out of 15 madmen die. 7 hobbit slaves out of 29 die.Now that you are free what do we do.

One of your skavens gets his hand on the body of a cultist and eats him. While digesting him he starts seeing strange things he never noticed before. For him the world is a different place now. He recognises the flow of energy in the mana wastes. He looks at the other bodies of the cultists and finds out that there is some residual magic left in them. He orders some of the halflings to carry the cultists bodies for him. They squirm and take them on their shoulders.1 magic sensitive rat gained.You can guys decide on a name before I return later today.Now having these new abilities the rat manages to guide the group with greater determination to the place they seek.On two occasions scouts come with the news of strange markings in the earth.

>>37993162OK so it is clear we need to find a place to settle at least for the night, we do not want some horrific mana crazed mutant beasts to tear us apart at night.We need to find either an abandoned settlement or a cave or a hole where we can spend the night.
>>37993314A cave, dark cozy, warm. A building, anything other than open open. Yes.
>>37993314>>37993449>>37993743I am back In the area you are guys there are no caves. It appears that as you get closer to the site the cultists and the magic gifted ratman seek the tracks get more frequent.Some of the rats start suggesting to the gifted rat that they should leave this cursed region and find a more habitable zone. 5 turns of food.Also you guys can come up with a name for the magerat2 turns remaining until we reach the magic site.Actions 1:A1 Send rats to explore and find a cave in which to settle.B1 Continue on to the magic site.C1 Backstab the mad cultists while they sleep and leaveD1 Other specify

>>37994342I would also like to note that in this setting races are not with their default alignments.Actions define the alignment not general fantasy rules. You guys decide what we will be but just to let you know you can play these ratmen as good guys if enough people vote for good actions.This is just fyi. We are not stuck with the cliched alignments of races so if you have ideas to not be normal skaven like in WHFB feel free to voice them.At this point we are a clean slate.
>>37994452good to know I suppose.We'd still kinda be doing the world a favor murdering those nuts in their sleep before they unleash some kind of hellish manabeast swarm.I just feel like we're seriously underequipped to try and pull this off.And that maybe everyones gone since you took that random break/left to do IRL things stuff.
>>37994249>B1 Continue on to the magic site.
>>37994496Yeah somethng urgent came up and I had to go..I am back and when we get enough votes we will continue.I can say that all we have are some makeshift weapons and some small stones. We are currently wearing some old rags and the robes of the dead cultists.We have some tents and 3 carts with 3 horses tho. And some tools for making camp23 clanrats and 1 ratman mage who knows no spells.
>>37994653Yeah given the skavens middling melee ability we'd have to walk a very careful line in the wastes or settle near it and use the area as a site of magic research and enlightenment/damnation.I don't wanna abandon it but it feels like we're walking into a slaughter house wanting rat burgers.Also semishameless bumping. We could use some players/second opinions.

>>37995564Better! Only lose 3 rats, and Skaven are prolific.
>>37995564With your rats swarming on the cultists like a wave of teeth and claws the surprise is full. The mad warlocks have little time to react and only 3 of them manage to take one rat each with them, while they gag and drown in their own blood. They quickly die off to the numerous wounds the horde of rats inflicts upon them. We now have food for 10 weeks.

>>37995668>C1 Pick a random direction and leave.Re-enslave the hobbits.
>>37995668B1, we have to find a good place to settle.As for the hobbits... We are masters now, I say we enslave them. We need somebody to work for us.
>>37995701Agreed>C1If we re enslave the hobbits we show that we are just as bad as are former masters.....i say we eat them.
>>37995784Enslavement versus cannibalism. It sounds like a choice between Lawful Evil and Chaotic Evil. I think we should keep the hobbits as slaves, and style ourselves Neutral Evil.
>>37995742so c1 and re-enslave the hobbits ?OK The (nameless) ratshaman decides to smell the flows of magic and decides to go in a seemingly to everyone else random direction. as. someone roll 1d5 pls
>>37995727>>37995742Slaves tend to be bad idea and management hell in my experience. They'll rebel eventually. I'd say either free them, cooperate for a benefit or just tell them to bugger off or get stabbed.I don't wanna have to deal with constant slave rebellions if the dicegods hate us.
>>37995884We should be Neutral Evil... We enslave them. A chance to live. If they probe to be trouble, then well, I'm sure skaven won't mind eating hobbits.
Rolled 4 (1d5)>>37995881I will halt the discussion prematurely by rolling. You can free the hobbits later, if you wish.

>>37995984THEY ARE NOT FOR EATING
>>37995921Long weeks pass and the Skaven and Hobbits leave the mana wastes behind. Slowly the ground changes to a more fertile looking soil. At the end of the long days you arrive at the edge of a cliff. The Skaven shamanrat (now holding an improvised walking stick with the skull of a human warlock upon it stands on the edge of the cliff and looks far into the setting sun. It appears that you have reached a canyon.The rats see a river on the bottom of the canyon. There are trees of shade and green grass growing all around the bottom.

>>37996060if we settle, are we still close to the mana wastes? the cultists said good ritual places are there, we might want to stay close to it
>>37996255We are a week or more away from the mana wastes.
>>37996255We're still pretty heavily in favor of that yeah. Its a good resource/magic site but my god fuck living INSIDE IT. Just noping right out of that.Distancewise we're practically nextdoor to it anyway. But far enough hopefully whatever nightmares live in it wont come after us for awhile.
>>37996164;Di take that this timebesides nothing bad would have happened.one rat getting lost or something.Some of the rats sneak down the valley to explore. They find hares and birds and kill as much enough to last 2 turns. They see that nobody is at the bottom of the canyon. Only wild animals.

>>37996515Right I'm gonna be the annoyingfag and ask how you're going to run this now that we've gotten past your starter quest OP.How many actions do we get?Will population rise on its own over time or do we actively have to choose B to increase population?How do you wanna run research?How will tech tree roll out or have you even thought on that yet?Sorry but I'd rather know these things now instead of having to argue over things we don't know later. Yeah I'm the pansy who reads a manual and ask for directions if I'm cluelessAs for actual vote this round.>F lets see the wildlife and have fun killing it for fun and profit!
>>37996658Indeed, can we greatly increase the pace of the game now? I think it would be best if each turn covered the span of an entire year. To do that you should also allow us to take multiple actions each turn. Eventually, we should have our population be greatly increased. This is, after all, a game modeled after Sid Meier's Civilization.
>>37996658The Scouts return with news that they found some strange plant. One of the hobbits overhears this and states that this is a plant named corn which can they used to grow before they were enslaved. They explain that they managed to cross the river because they found an ancient bridge going over it. They don't know who built the bridge though.Also they found a place full of hard mud. One of them took a handfull and put it in his rags. going back he fell into the river by mistake.

Rolled 3 (1d20)>>37997190>Mengnawand that's the third.We need to farm though. so E. We really need to build up our resources before breeding. Then maybe we can do some digging, build some hobbit/rat holes you know? But first, we MUST have a steady supply of food. Get that corn growing. Corn's a dry type of food, so we probably want to plant it AWAY from the river, since it's very easy to drown corn. I'm surprised it survived over there... must be a very shallow river?Anyway, point is. Food first. Don't bump up population with a fast breeding race unless you have a decent food backlog.
>>37997291also we should imply that useful hobbits get freedom and citizenship. Useless hobbits get to sleep outside. in chains... possibly within flooding distance of the river.Carrot AND stick.
>>37997291It looks like we're just going to assign the hobbits to permanent farming duty. We won't have to worry about food anymore and we can spend our turns doing other things from now on.

They manage to haul some decent meals but not enough to last much time.Some of them wish they had better tools to hunt knowing that it would have given them a higher yield if they did.1-2 of the hunters went to the river shore and discovered that if they are silent enough they can catch some small fishes if they are fast and sneaky enough. The fish are a new taste to the rats.Fishing discovered.
>>37997379Once we build up some food stores, we should probably build a smoking hut. A place to cure the meat by lighting a fire under it and smoking it, drying it out into jerky. Not super tasty, but long lasting and we'll need it... also easy to build from clay and logs.

;_; sorry guys i am too slow with writing up things1 more vote to confirm ;(
>>37998127Sorry I had to help shove a mower out of a ditch (seriously)I say C Build weapons. smoking the jerky can wait till we start having a surplus.
>>37998127The game is going very slowly. That is true. Civilization threads are supposed to be modeled on Sid Meier's Civilization. It shouldn't be necessary to spend an entire turn gathering sticks and stones. It would be better if each turn spanned an entire year. We would be able to accomplish more that way. We have spent several turns to accomplish what would be done in a single turn in Sid Meier's Civilization. Instead of hunting and gathering clay, we should be advancing into the Bronze Age, founding new cities, and fighting wars.
>>37998257Some of the rats make a few spears and give them to the hunters. With these new spears the hunters are now able to fish bigger and tastier fishes from the shore.10spears,5 pickaxes and 5 shovels are produced.(pickaxes can be used for mining and for woodcutting)you have resources for about the same ammount of tools.r1d10 for hunting1 1 turn2-7 2 turns8-10 2 turns+ ?

He tells them they need to do this because now we have ratchildren and he is sure nobody wishesh his babies to be enslaved like their parents were.The rats train with vicious determination. All 10 of them learn how to fight well with the spears. Some of them even try and throw the spears learning that they can throw one of the spears and then continue fighting with the pickaxe.The female rats decide to go and get some clay and make at first fail making good pots dishes but after a lot of hard work they produce some jugs in which to store the corn and fish/meat.+++++Research: Basic farming, Basic stone tools and weapons,Basic resource gathering, Fishing ,PotteryFood : 4 turns surplus.

>>37999371Welp. We just dig dug so hard we could probably move into the cave network made from this.
>>37999371Mengnaw sinks himself in the magic plane. He runs the threads of natural magic around his fingers trying to see if he can find the one of metals. After the exausting ritual Mengnaw is able to find the so desired thread. He pinpoints the location to the other rats and quickly they use their axepicks to break the rocks. LO AND BEHOLD. METAL. The rats happily break the ores and bring to Mengnaw who is supported by the rest. It appears that the ratshaman will need a rest after this incredible feat. The metal that we found is a natural alloy of tin and copper. ( fuck it's magic I ain't gotta explain shit).Now we only need a forge to be able to smelt the ore we found.Meanwhile the women have built their first clay stove which now yields better food. Risk of desease lowered -> well cooked food > smarter rats. Maybe someone will need to consult with the women.

The tents are overcrowded and the new rats' morale is starting to fall. They don't want to sleep outside in the cold wind. The scouts are coming back next turn with a map of what lies to the north.I want a 1d10 to see what they have discovered

But I am totally in if you guys manage to gather enough votes to move into a mine.

>>38000047I'm not sure about mine living since our resources seem pretty good as of now but I'd love to see if we could vote on a small expedition with 5 of our warriors
>>38000047The scouts come back with the news that they found massive body of water. Nobody believe them at first but then Mengnaw said that this is possible.They have also ecountered two different animals.They managed to sneak up on the ones to the west and this is probably what saved their lives. It appears to be some sort of felinid with yellow fur. The two scouts remained undetected but were too afraid to proceed. To the east they found something very peculiar. A set of monumental stones arranged in some interesting pattern. They felt strange at the site. To the north of the site they have found something even more peculiar. Another form of life which has a big trunk. Upon seeing the two ratmen the massive animals who were grazing started making screaming noises. It appeared as if so their wildest nighmares were laying before them. They started running in tho opposite direction. The scouts didn't try to follow.
>>38000161Cats and elephants, the mortal enemies of mice.
>>38000047If anything the hobbits are proving stupidly useful. And we really haven't beaten them much at all I think. Hell they're serfs at this point. Making food for their rat overlords.Plus I'm practical. hobbits make shit slave labor in heavy duty tasks. It seems alot easier if we try and get chummy with them and not have to waste ratpower watchnig them constantly.We're no doubt likely to run into someone whos spoiling for a fight eventually. I bet they'd make better laborers.As for mine living tunneling and living in our excatavted has a few pros. we get resources for making living space (stone, ore) and with some work and research we'd have a veritable fortress to live in.The cons are unless we find special underground crops of somekind food would be rather hard to keep unless we breed livestock inside. Plus water supplies and other logistics.
>>37999604>C Build shelter>D Research those stones w/mengnaw
>>38000161Mengnaw needs to start researching magic and we need to build up our military as soon as our food is fine.An attack from either civs will destroy us.
>>37999892>>37999945>>38000059All the rats take up tools some of them go and chop wood, others go and dig clay. Some of them go take the leaves off the corn and mix it with mud. All in all they come up with plans of making clay houses supported by a wooden structure and a roof made out by mix of straw and mud. The works goes on slow at first but once the rats get the knack of it they immerse fully into the task and start making progress.Clay Village will be done in 1 turn if everything continues.Meanwhile the other part of the tribe has started pondering on how to turn the bronze ore into metal. One of the cooking women jokes funnily that they are spending all day doing nothing but scratcing their heads. if they don't do something they will be cooking and eating that ore for dinner. Mengnaw listens to her words while the others laugh. He grabs some of the ore and tosses it into one of the fires the rats sit around. He concentraces on the fire and makes it burn very hot. Everybody moves away scared. But Mengnaw reaches with a stick into the fire and pushesh out the melted ore.Smelting discovered. Will need a forge for making tools though. (made of stone/clay) which will also need fuel.
>>38000320this Mengnaw's house.
>>38000320I vote we go on an expedition with 5 warriors and a half-ling to meet the cat men, halflings have a diplomacy bonus so we may be able to trade some of our horses or slaves for more resources so we can make more than one OR a larger forge.

>>38001852See ya Lio. this is one I'm going to pay attention to its off to a decent start.Fair warning though, put some rules into what the hell magic can and can't do. Otherwise you'll get a lemming rush on it's research at the expense of literally everything else.Your brand oughta be interesting if you can eat a cultist and get magic powers tough..
>>38002318This is all OOCMagic is set into 1-2-3 tiers as I envision it.First tier is basic control over the Elements. This is what attunement does. Kinda like the things they do in Avatar the Last Airbender and Korra.2nd tier of magic is the more complex part of things. In order to do this you need a broader conception of the magic fields. Kinda what our Mangnaw gained the ability to do. If the sorceror/mage gets the basic ruleset of how to do things he can from then on start researching on their own. The difference from the elemental attunement is that it is way hard to get the basics on your own. Sorcerors and wizards tend to congregate into wizard schools where they share spells. Wizard schools tend to be independent from the political games the world plays. I can elaborate more on this but at some other time.Some of the spells for the Wizardry tier still need some form of attunement. Others like rituas need a cost a certain price to cast the spell. Our ratmen and the hobbits were the price the cultists were ready to exchange in order to fuel their evil schemes.The third one is Holy magic. AKA Paladins. But holy doesn't always mean good. It means that a paladin for a certain god is bestowed powers which will be stronger in the domain of that god. Also they have the flavour of the god. AKA a paladin of a water god will have water based powers. It does not require any cost as long as the civ and paladin stay true to the god and do his bidding.I am really into spells from the Heroes 3 spellbook http://www.heroesofmightandmagic.com/heroes3/spellsair.shtml
>>38002646Also a budding sorceror can't learn a very high difficulty spell. He first needs to come up with the basics. Use his spells in some manner. He can't learn the gamebreaking spells just by studying in his tower. He has to get his hands dirty.Also if he tries to do something beyound his abilities bad things are more likely to happen. Losing control of magic can be very disastrous.Enchanting can be a mix of 1st and 2nd tier magic
