(Map changes: The dwarves have reclaimed all their lost territory from the lich named the King Of Ivory, and have begun to repair the damage to their lands)>>39887396Currently you have made no laws whatsoever. The Kingdom of Treeline is a kingdom in only it's name and loyalty of your men. Your country is currently a hive of lawlessness with only your warriors keeping the peace by their own ambition. Fortunately you only had your military and farmers until recently, with the addition of merchants, a town square, and an inn tavern, public drunkeness, fights, and theft, caused more by visitors then your own people though they aren't all clean themselves, have started to become common within the last few weeks.

"Aye, of course your highness, with the undead scum gone it's much more peaceful now, though the kingdom is still recovering and there's likely to be people out there taking advantage of the chaos. Considering our losses recently though. 10 warriors, 2 clerics, and 3 rangers should be plenty."With that he goes and assembles the team and have word sent ahead of your arrival as royal etiquette dictates.You mount your purebreed horse, your units form a line around you, and you head of for the mountains.

When you arrive you are greeted by a literal welcome wagon at the entrance of the giant mountain tower that held the entrance to the dwarven fortress city below. "Your highness! Praise be the angels for your arrival. I know you might think your contribution small to a war, but you helped us out of your own free will, with no obligation, and no ask for payment or service in turn. Certainly more generous then any of our other allies. That alone is worth our respect. Please, take this wagon of dwarven ale as thanks for your help. It's not the hoppy beer you sent us but I think you'll appreciate the extra kick." Says the head welcomer.

Their were still dwarves hanging form the ceiling with ropes with buckets and scrubbers cleaning the blood off the walls. After awhile though the carnage ceases and you see the entire city, well almost, the entire city would take days they tell you but you see all the major marks of dwarven society, the breweries, the craftsman shops of all kinds, the stone carvers, the blacksmiths, the metal workers, the jewelers, their feasting halls, and the entrance to the mines and the vaults, your not shown in however. Until finally you finally reach the king's throne hall and lay your eyes upon King Urlal. He's a broad man with the thickest and reddest of beards. He gets up from his throne, walks slowly to you, lifts his old stern face, and gives a small smile before reaching out his hand.>Shake hand>Bow and Curtsey before shaking hand>Give him a hug (for the dawww's)>Do nothing and begin speaking>Other

>Shake handHis hands are firm, you can feel every wrinkle in his hand, the rugged skin scratches against your smooth maiden skin. His huge hand practically devours yours in it's grip. Thankfully it seems he realizes this and keeps it short. "Welcome, Princess Lumora...or should it be queen now? Or perhaps Emperor Princess? Empress?"

>>39889159>I wish to discuss trade>I wish to discuss inter kingdom politics>I wish to discuss a dream, a nightmare really, of our common foeA feast would be bad when the dwarves are still recovering and we're low on cash and resources.
>>39889240We are already known, I don't see that much of a point.also this allience can be kept secret between us, unless needed.
(Well almost all of you agree on trade, so let's start there) >I wish to discuss trade"Trade, huh? Hmmm, well we have a ready supply of wood, we control all the forest that border the mountains, no shortage of crafting material from the mountain...we do only have one surface village dedicated to food production...and we can always make use of more that hoppy bear of yours.

>>39889909>>I wish to discuss a dream, a nightmare really, of our common foe
>>39889922I am not saying they can't train more clerics. But if our head cleric continues to train them under the teachings Saerenae instead of the Angelic church we will face a opposition from the church. We don't want them suddenly calling for a crusade or inquisition to hunt the heretics.
>>39889909My vote's the same as this guy>>39889935Really have more to discuss, yet so little time.
>>I wish to discuss a dream, a nightmare really, of our common foe"...the King of Ivory, I hoped it to be a shadow of the war still rattling my brain to madness. I would've preferred that." He has the hall cleared so you two can speak privately.You explain all the details of your dream."Mhm...then we shared the same dream alright. If this is true however, I fail to see how we mortals could stop a war between celestial forces...this requires research. I'll have my tome dwarfs do some research.

>>39890053>Mind if I ask why you don't like humans?Just to clarify stuff.These things if not asked can bite us in the back later.
>>Mind if I ask why you don't like humans?"Well, with them only living to 80-100 tops, before your kingdom cropped up, the only major human settlement was the Steelgate kingdom, and they've been our only craftsmanship and mining competitors, plus they always hoard how much food they have over us. From what I've heard your half-brother is even worse then the usual king. I'm honestly glad you go out of that kingdom. Maybe you can give humans a good name again in these lands."Anything else?>No>I wish to discuss an alliance>I wish to discuss inter kingdom politics>I was wondering if you had any heirs eligible for marriage>I wish to celebrate our accomplishments with a feast>Other
>>39890241>>I wish to discuss an alliance"I shall do my best to restore the good name of our people, in the hopes of a renewed and long lasting friendship with your kingdom."
>>39890241We should put up a consulate in the dwarven kingdom.
>>39890241>>I wish to discuss an allianceUpon my future success against my half-brother perhaps we can drink as King and Empress one day.
>>39890241>NoAll the other options(barring the marriage option) we will do, LATER. When we are more accustomed to each other.for now this will do. we already completed our objective, we should cut here and start trading to improve bonds even more before doing anything like that.TLDR: stop, we did our objective, no more meddling.
>>I wish to discuss an alliance"An alliance? Hah! Quite the warrior princess you are. Let me guess, you want revenge on your half brother, but your kingdom is to small to fight him right now, and if he attacks you to soon you're done for. However with an alliance with me he'll be to scared to do anything like the coward he is. As much I would like to stick it to Steelgate, I am putting my neck out there for you. My kingdom isn't exactly at peak condition right now either. So here's the deal, I'll ally with you, but only if you promise not to ally with the other other thorns in my side, the elves. Take it or leave it.">Deal>No Deal>other
>>39890445>other>Elves? How are they being a thorn to you?make sure we're not missing or fucking up choices.
>>39890445>other>I'll think about it.Let's not be too hasty here.
>>39890445>>39890473This.Lets see if we can mediate with the elves to not mess with the dwarfs so much.
>>39890445What are the elves up to?
>>39890473>>39890484>>39890501"They're fucking elves what else do you need to know you-"He says stopping himself. "Sorry, I lost my temper. When this continent was first discovered, the eldest civilization here was already dead in the sand wastes, so we had the place all to ourselves. Including the Tree of Starlight. It's the source of all magic in Mondshire forest, powerful to,before they made it their kingdom. This land has always been plagued by dragons, a red dragon still slumbers in the mountains. The Elves, who had been sneaking in to live in the forest anyway, made a deal with us. They'd magically make sure the dragon that was destroying what we had just built was no longer a problem for us, if we gave them the forest, including the Tree of Starlight. We thought they would use the magic to kill the dragon, not just put it to sleep. When we argued they didn't do there part, they told us that they could wake the dragon at any time from it's magical slumber and allow it to destroy us. So we conceded and gave them the forest and the Tree of Starlight. That wasn't enough for them though, ever since they've been acting like even I am below even their dukes. Always dangling the red dragon over us. So that's why they're a thorn in my side. Now do we have a deal or not?">Deal>No Deal>Other
>>39890626>Other>I'll think about it.I guess we have a dragon to assassinate folks.
>>39890626mmm, you know, we have a problem with a dragon too. Maybe some of your best smiths, some of our druids and our wizards can come up with some sort of dragonbane?
>>39890626>OtherThis>>39890668Along withWe need to recruit adventurers.Quest giving!
>>39890668>>39890791Very well, but I do hope you consider my offer in the future. If your half-brother decides to strike you may not have a choice.(Alright that's it for me tonight, It's waaaay late. Goodnight all. I'll go archive the thread.)
>>39890626>>Otherand if I slayed this dragon and removed the threat entirely, then what would that be worth?
We might want to hire some scholar to draft a proper constitution for us in the future, the one we have now isn't good enough for a nation state.Here's hoping we can create a more eco-friendly Ankh-Morphok in the future.
>>39890830>>39890700>>39890668Jesus guys, you're all ambitious. There's a lot of options, though.>Ask green dragon for tips, y/n?if the green dragon doesn't like him, he might help. Then again, the less the green dragon knows, the better.>method of killingthis guy took on the dwarves no problem: I don't think steel weapons are going to cut it. So, are we flooding the lair with water/swamp sludge/poison, or collapsing the mountain on him?>>39890857With our current rate of population "growth", yeah.>>39890817speaking of which, I'm guessing the ratfolk don't want to go back?
>>39892462>speaking of which, I'm guessing the ratfolk don't want to go back?Probably not.Obviously though, if our brother attacks, we need to go full vietnam.Perhaps we should make use of their talents and the incoming dorfs to help create a network of burrows and warrens for the evacuation of civilians and for our troops to harass and trap any incoming enemies.Shit smeared stakes and pits, ambushes leaving no one left, heads taken and stacked up. Loads of terror tactics.
>>39892637>a network of burrows and warrensthose are going to need to be pretty deep, we don't want to collapse the larger plantlife in the jungle.Not a lot of people will like living down there, either. Then again, there are benefits:>tired of tripping over roots?>canopy thick enough that there isn't any sunlight anyway?>live underground!
>>39892662Well only as a last resort to fall back on if war does come.In peace time, we can use it to farm mushrooms and other molds, roots.
>>39892708that's fine and all, but really: how the fuck are we going to kill an adult red dragon?
>>39892725lure it to the green dragon's lair.
>>39892740>Lure the older dragon to fight a lazy-ass dragon>Lure a fire dragon into a forestcould you, uhh, explain?
>>39892762I just saying on the off chance it does come to attack us, we have the fight draw close to the green dragon's lair. If you mean we go and attack the red dragon and slay it?Well... The red dragon yet sleeps in the mountain, yes? Then we should see if we can work with the dorfs to find our way to its lair without the elves knowing.One option to potentially kill it would be the good ol' magma flood.Otherwise we could attempt to rig it to wake up.It it wakes up and start rampaging among the elf stronghold, we could engineer a 3 nation effort to kill the beast and get the elves to stop being snooty.
>>39892824I meant what did you think of >>39892462.The dwarves aren't going to like it if we allow it to rampage. We're less than a hundred troops: to them, we'd be doing more harm than good if we let it rampage.We could figure a way to direct it to the elves and force them to help, but if negotiations fail, the dwarves and the elves are going to war right afterwards. That, and with the church right between them, one or both sides is going to be crushed under paladin feet.
>>39892866I think collapsing the mountain would be the alarm clock for the red dragon since I don't really see how that might kill it unless its really really alot of soil on top. Even then, the chances of killing it outright is iffy.Green dragon consultation is obviously something we should do regardless. I'm just curious what that pervert might ask in return. We'll have to see.
>>39892972I'm hesitant on the green dragon on the off-chance he's got a brain.>oh, the princess wants help to kill that red dragon I hate>wait, the princess wants to kill a dragonlater>the princess KILLED A DRAGON>fuck me, I'm next, it's a good thing I've had plenty of time to concoct a planinstead of>it's that princess again. Is she finally going to join my harem?>oh, she wants to kill me? How foolish->....when did she get strong enough to kill adult dragons?
