Rolled 77, 90, 50, 73, 54, 26 = 370 (6d100)The Fall was a long time coming, and when it happened only a few were caught totally unaware. Its ferocity, however, could not have been predicted. Civilizations that had stood for ages were wiped from the face of the earth in a matter of days, and the ground itself suffered wounds from the great powers unleashed upon it. But no one around now knows exactly how or why it happened, and the few that could tell the tale prefer not to. The Old World is gone, though its traces remain. The New World is a shattered husk of its old self where mutants, bandits, and monsters teem in the ruins of cities. There are also those who seek to rebuild. Remnants of the Old World who sheltered the storm in underground bunkers, or descendants of average people who somehow avoided the horrors of the apocalypse. Which will you be?Faction Choices Incoming. Extensive HQ information will be provided after a faction is selected. First to 5 wins

Either way, you have: High Supply, Low Population, High Manufacturing Capacity, Good Research Capability, and Low War Capacity.>Hqs: Megatower, Private Bunker, Fortified Township >Hyperindustrial Equipment: Your actions which use resources count as using materials for passive benefits. Your actions which use materials will use them at half the usual rate.>Military Remnants: You are the members or descendants of one or several military or paramilitary groups.

You also gain 1 special, elite military unit oriented around your tech specialty. >Survivors: You are descended from the people who survived the Apocalypse and somewhat kept your identity. Your people are regarded much like most regard cockroaches, but your tenacity and will to survive despite your lack of advantages gain you a grudging respect. You have a passing familiarity with much of the Old World due to passed on knowledge.

You have Low Supplies, Good Population, Average Manufacturing Capacity, Low Research Capability, Very Good War Capacity.>HQs: Prison, Military Base, Spire >Penalty: Most of the members of your civilization are too crazed to do menial tasks such as 'farm for food to feed yourselves' or 'fetch water to drink'. You will have to steal, pillage, or use slaves to satisfy basic needs. Furthermore, you are all absolutely evil and good actions will cause extensive unrest among your population.>What's that it's Shiny?: Your forces will automatically upgrade their equipment to the best you have over time.

The Sierran RepublicFaction Type: Government RemnantsHQ: Fortified TownshipJack of All Trades: Survivors SpecialityFluff:Just but a decades ago, a group of survivors stumbled upon a town almost untouched by the war. There, they found a small colony of vault dwellers displaced from their home, and carrying a great library and many undamaged relics and remnants of the Old World civilization with it. Teaching the survivors, the native inhabitants learned how to live with them, assimilating their knowledge and culture, and dwell and teaching them through books and holograms about old world principles on government, democracy, learning about history from the humble beginnings of a tiny colony surrounded by a strange new world, to the age of frontiersmen and pilgrims venturing into the wilderness to settle in dangerous lands, and a “Destined Manifestation” resultant in the growth of a nation.Believing in these histories, and taking elements from the relics found, these people came together to form the Sierran Republic. Using the information to survive the post apocalypse from the survivors, and firmly believing in the concepts of civilization, the rule of law, and freedom handed down by the vault inheritants, their dream is to expand what they see as the righteous cause of civilization, to bring order and hope to a world bereft of it, and they will continue to do so and fight for their very survival to the last man.>>41188783I like the way you think as well. Also gotta pick only one of those HQ choices and specifiy which other civ type specialty we'll take.

There are few-to-none who ever could've held a candle to you in your chosen field, and that was before the Fall. You also gain 1 special, elite military unit oriented around your tech specialty.Over the years we haven't forgotten the old ways and never will, the only thing that drives us is the sole purpose to restore what has been taken away from us freedom, safety, and order. These filthy mutants, bandits and everything else that's not human will be purged sooner or later, the world is in chaos any only we can save it.I'm not that good with this
Rolled 93 (1d100)>>41189020Nah, I think if it doesn't take off it wasn't meant to be and I'll just do another starter another day. (Probably Thursday or tomorrow)
>Mutants:Fluff: The MindersRelatively humanoid in size and shape, the minder mutants have developed an apt towards psionics. Although they have the semblance of a slight hivemind, or are at least able to telephatically communicate with each other, their evolution was geared toward something very specificEvery member seems to have a natural ability to be able to communicate with the various species of monsters that inhabit the wasteland, from the tiniest insecticides to the largest of beasts. By learning to refine this ability, they have discovered it is possible to not only peacefully coexist with many many monster types but, given the right amount of training and trust between a minder, use them as an advantage, to carry heavy loads, scavenge for materials, and even fight for them.There are many different relationships being experimented on. Some focus on singular relationships with a specific creature, developing a strong bond. Others focus on being able to manipulate lots of smaller creatures, to act in swarms.Some teams of individuals even focus on being able to speak to gigantic creatures, if at least to subconsciously convince them to walk somewhere else instead of demolishing their village.
>>41188783Second this, let's be the Enclave. But more diplomatic, if we want to screw diplomacy and kill everyone we should probably go with robots.>Government RemnantSpecialty: tech: (power armor)
>>41189105Hmm, if we're going to take a very xenophobic stance in such a hostile territory, we had either have some good tech to back it up, or some other way to get allies.
>>41189160>>41188783I kind of like the idea of the Enclave myself. Lemme see if I can help with some fluff.
>>41189162I was thinking of androids, power armor, and turrets for some good techs, we could try to be sleathy or secretive with our base of operations and deal with one faction at a time.
>>41189160>>41188783>Government Remnant: >>Jack of All Trades: Think Tank Power ArmorFluff:Long ago, before the Fall, our ancestors were leaders and military men, who descended deep into the earth in a great bunker.Back then, they were preparing for a great war against an enemy they would never face, but whose weapons would still be needed many many years later.Unlike other vaults of the civlians, they planned for the world that would come in a worst case scenario. A world plagued by radiation, anarchy, and enemy invasion by every manner of hostile vehicle and monster that could be thrown at them in the horrors of war. And so they made sure they would be prepared to exit their bunker in force, determined to save the ideals of their nation.In their bunker they had the weapons and tools to wage war, everything from power armor to be worn by soldiers to give them increased strength, speed, and defense against a wartorn world, to towering exoskeletons, walking tanks on legs wielding massive weapons.They planned well, in the world racked by war, there would be no oil refiners or gas stations to refuel, there would be no factories to build spare parts, or teams of scientists to invent and replace damaged weapons.The technology they left for us, they made sure we could use. Power cores that could be recharged using solar arrays, holographic training programs teaching how to repair and replace parts, how to function in power armor, how to manage and repair their base.A specialist team was even created, a group of people who would be handpicked and trained as elites, leaders, and scientists to oversee the entire operation.And now. . .that day has come. And we exit our great bunker. Those who entered in are long gone, but not forgotten among our memories, but now we their descendants shall rise up and fullfil their destiny and true goal.To restore the nation of our forebearers.

>>41189831Well, everyone is throwing in own admissions, providing description of the civ, but apparently there will be just a single civ in the game, right? How it will be chosen?
Voting for government remnants with a specialty in power armor. let's be Enclave badasses.
>>41189815It'd be interesting to see your ideas, and even if it doesn't win they could show up as an npc faction later.Incidentally, I wouldn't mind seeing the minders show up later. Heck, they might be a better starting option, but changing my vote now would just slow things down.
Rolled 68 (1d100)>>41189815Fluff will add flavor to the basic archetype of your civ. It will also influence your starting equipment, training, and other background/behind-the-scenes things.For example this fluff: >>41189506Would net you a well-rounded Government Remnant with an increase in its military capacity. In addition to your power armor specialty you would have an expanded armory and all of your equipment would be oriented towards self-sustaining.
>>41189936Can I ask why you are constantly rolling a dice 100?
>>41189931Then there is no point giving an admission at all for me.Sorry, I don't like when my stuff is used as a crutch for everyone around, because as NPCs this faction is dead meat.No fortified university for you.Have fun anyway with doing rehash of Enclave.

All actions undertaken within your homeground will have bonuses given to them. Urban: Start in the middle of a city, no reliable food sources around. Increased bandits, factions, zombies, resources.Rural: Start in undeveloped country with a small farm already set up, decreased zombies, bandits, monsters, salvage.Desert: Start with no immediately detectable sources of water or food nearby. Deserts were popular places for scientific and military bases though, and you'll certainly have plenty of space to build.Forest: Start with nearby wild food sources and plentiful sources of lumber. Substantially increased monsters, mildly increased salvage.Island: Start in relative safety, fish are plentiful but toxic without effort, few nearby locations. Substantially decreased zombies, bandits, decreased monsters.Military Base: Start inside a large military complex, the bunker you have taken over includes a small nuclear generator, armory, stockpile of ammunition/survival supplies, and some intel on the base and terrain at large. The base is an attractive target for raiding though. Greatly increased bandits and salvage.Science Lab: Start with extensive hidden underground complex, scientific supplies and equipment to speed research, and experimental power generators, but dangerous things lurking in some deeper labs. Increased scientific monstrosities.Vault: Start inside part of a large, self sufficient underground complex. Your node is self-sufficient but poorly fortified, and you don't have much room to expand. Furthermore the Vault is not entirely inhabited, and the things that live underground have started to creep in... Increased factions, monsters, decreased bandits.Write-In whatever you can think of.
>>41190945Military Base, obviously.
>>41190945Rural, because I like food and less monsters.
>>41190945Your selected Homeground is contained inside your selected Terrain. Terrain determines general climate and weather behavior, as well as having various other influences.

Rolled 33 (1d100)>>41191300The island could be forested if you'd like and the necessary votes are acquired, but it would raise/lower the danger accordingly. An Island/Forest hybrid would have less zombies and bandits, but increased monsters.Due to it being your terrain rather than homeground you wouldn't feel the effects as significantly immediately, but it would influence things nonetheless.
>>41191349>Yeah and considering what happened last time I'd really like to avoid forested areasWhat happened last time (give me the short version)
>>41191255sure, taking a name.Maybe we could try a mountain/island hybrid for terrain? Like have a mountain in the middle of the island, bulk of the research lab is built into the side of the mountain
>>41191409>What happened last time (give me the short version)Lots of monsters. I think the way Strelok described it was "Dear. Fucking. God."
>>41191379We could concentrate on controlling the monsters
>>41191438We could.The best thing to do in this game is stay optimistic and try your best to roll with punches. Aim high but shoot straight.

The surface of the island is mostly covered in sheer rock face and desolate tundra. There is one area directly above the entrance to the bunker itself, it was built for the pre-apocalyptic staff who stayed here. It consists of housing units and recreational areas. The entrance to the bunker is located behind a man-made boulder that can slide open when the correct password is put into a hidden control panel built into the mountain side. The bunker itself expands into the mountain and underneath it.

The generations before were able to clouds after the bombs fell. Fallout hit the land soon after, luckily we had enough time to take cover in the bunker. The population consisted of part scientists, maintenance staff, and some security guards.Anyone want to add fluff to this, or maybe they have some different stories? It's all open to interpretation.
>>41191868>Generation beginning now, you may fluff the area if you like (for bonuses) or leave it empty.Near the entrance to one of the side tunnels, is a small fishing cabin. Long covered over in ice and snow, it's thick walls are indistinguishable from the mountain itself. Inside the cabin, is a fishing area, where crab traps, can be lowered and raised. Just inside the tunnel is a room where food my be cleaned and de-toxified. This handy perk, greatly increases our ability to provide food to the lab workers.Near the abandoned heli-pad on one of the mountains many plateaus, is a small green house, thermally heated from the mountain's core, and able to be used to grow a variety of fresh vegetables.
>>41191868So, how do we start playing?

>>41191868>>41191679Krakens Roost. That was the name of the island complex.In truth, while our base was built for the priority VIP's. . .the island is much larger than just that. The Island is several distances away from the mainland, and is just big enough to build on but small enough to be insignificant compared to the other mountainous islands in this cold part of the world. That made it an ideal location for a lot of other things our government wanted to hide. The mountain not only makes an excellent cover and defense against nuclear strikes, but an effective concealment for underground bunkers such as our own or the great government research facility built aboveIt is not the only government research facility, certainly not the most famous, but the island housed whatever our nation valued as top priority and to be secure against all costsIf our bunker is anything to go by, it secured people like us, as well as seeds of many different variety to be planted (though not particularly in such cold terrain)Whatever part of the facilities above ground are designed to be concealed via contouring around the rocks, and to be difficult to see from air or sea, though there's no hiding it to anyone on the island. Even so, they mostly appear to be innocuous bunkers, revealing of the large and grandiose faculties below.Few of us know what became of it. Our ancestors lost contact with the rest of the facility after a few years, and our sealing protocols did not allow them to go out and check what happenedWhat we do know is this.We were not the only ones to be be brought and secured on this island. A great many others were flown in here, scientists, the wealthy elite, and any manner of individuals who had the influence in the government to hide not only themselves, but whatever projects they wished to hide here.If what our ancestors said was true. . .this island is a national vault for every manner of government project, wealthy possession, and much much more.
>>41192000And the scientists continued to work on ways to resist radiation, effectively finding that the proper combination of chemicals could combat the effects of the slight radiation on the surface for 12 hour periods. The only downside is that the effects of the drug become less potent overtime, as the body can be flooded with the chemicals. It requires a few days before the body flushes all of the anti-radiation chemicals from the body.

In the increasing paranoia of the pre-Apocalypse years, it was one of several locations chosen as strongholds for key government personel. In the event of catastrophe, their mission was to survive, make contact with the other remnants, and ensure the survival of the Derpland (placeholder) way of life.>The catastrophe came.>Anons survived.>They never heard from the others.>Now, countless years afterwards, Anon Island continues to survive.

>>41190242Oh, let's see...Megacorp RemnantPrivate BunkerUsing all existing facilities and resources for great profit - after all their small medical bay is still better than nothing and their lovely "hotel" is one of few places where one can sleep tight without being afraid of anything. And there is even a small cinema! There is a very high entry fee and strict no weapons ban in the vicinity (with stripping everyone bare upon entering), while a lot of people are highly motivated and paid even more to defend this small paradise. In the same time those trifty capitalists established themselves as trading centre of the area, so a shitload of goods travells through them and many of them stay. And since they can afford that, they can always get some people to repair, build or re-invent stuff for them.Military RemnantMilitary BaseSmall, military outpost that was in the middle of nowhere, so nobody had any reason to attack or try to loot it in early years. Since it was just a batallion inside, now there are two and a half companies of men left. And half of them are over 50. Since they are well-armed, relatively well-trained and definitely well-organise, they've turned surrounding areas into their protectorate, meaning trading their services as guards with local population. But there is just so many of them, so covering anything bigger than a medium-sized county would stretch them to the breaking point. So far their main advantage is having military-grade vehicles running on bio-diesel, but they can only repair them, not build new ones.>TBC
>>41190242>>41196726>ContinuingGovernment RemnantFortified TownshipSpeciality of SurvivorsA small township within the ruins of old, much bigger, old down. Walls back from medieval times are again very useful, even if they never were anything spectacular. The nearest vicintiy of the town is a scravange area for inhabitants and there are always bands of squatters around. Most of the buildings outside of the walls are methodically demolished around main routes to stop some of the ambushes and there are outposts on higher buildings around town. The town is running with relatively normal life, with at least some of the infrastructure in working condition and and functional government. Town-guards double as police and army, but if they go outside, there will be not enough defenders left. The big secret is the sewer system, that allows for easy and undetectable movement throughout area, while most of the hatches being sealed from the inside. Most...SurvivorsNomadStaying alive is staying on foot. There are no safe havens left and there is no places to hide. Either we run or we die. At least that's what this group is thinking. There is barely any difference between them and common bandits, since they are not above attacking other groups, stealing, looting and pillage. There is only their group and their survival. Whoever can't protect themselves, doesn't deserve to keep anything or even live. They are barely armed when it comes to actual gear, but they use surprise for their advantage and extensive scouting, so then every shot counts.>TBC
>>41190242>>41196804Think Tank RemnantResearch FacilityOriginally the field facility of Agriculture University, those people know the most how important it is to apply knowledge and science to grow food in new, hostile world. They are few and weak, but they have enough food to pay off guards and gain support of the locals. Especially since they have "doctors" - it's always better to have trained vets than no medical care at all. Since they've got access to excess grain and most importantly - they still can breed and feed some animals - they can provide not only meat, but also fuel, be it alcohol or methane. Hell, their own facility is powered by methane generator. It pays to have a degree in Agriculture and HusbandryBanditsMilitary BaseThis is what happens when you have save haven organised by military unit too small to keep order - you get over-run from inside by "refugees". Now all the former garrison is turned into raider's den. Abundant ammunition made them masters of their turf, going mercilessly through local population, looting, stealing, raping and killing. Usually in that order. But there is barely anything left to steal arround, so it's time to look for new targets. Since they are mostly using their numbers and zero training, the waste of bullets is also considerable, so few big skirmishes and the supply will run dry. Atmosphere is tense, at least at the top of the gang. The rest of the punks still don't know they are on a verge of collapse.>TBC
>>41190242>>41196854MutantsResearch ComplexOriginally intended as "fast way to adopt", a series of experiments, tests and morally-dubious acts were performed by the stuff members. Experimentation on fetuses, impregnation with selected embryos, then further modifications... It went out of hand pretty quick. After roughtly 30 years, there are barely any pure humans left within the coplex. Not all mutations and alternations were successful - especially with firsts "generations", where not all procedures were mastered. And not all were successful later, since resourcess and trained manpower are constantly going low. Actually, there is no skilled manpower anymore, so all what's left is hoping the pregnant will stop breed abominations and little monsters, or the complex will be completely void of life. Since the facility was originally a restricted area and a well-known genetic lab, nobody bothered to check it out - what is there to steal aside of few test tubes?RobotsFactoryOriginally a field repair shop, designated for automation repair of military vehicles and drones. All orders for the local rudimentry AI were sent - meaning it's currently constantly on war repair programme. It means active sending scout units to find any damaged vehicles and drones, bring back, repair and... wait for further instructions. The system is fully operational and with steadily increasing capabilities of defence, but replacement parts won't last forever. And since that supply order is pending for last 40 years, it's time to search other such shops for more resources. Any non-member of the military that build this shop will be treated as enemy, just like all civilians unable to prove they are citizens. On the other hand, the AI is perfectly fine with repairs for encountered military personel of right affiction, done for free. And there is this park of units ready to be used when proper authorisation is given or logistic order is sent...
>>41190242So I think those are pretty much ok and not gamey at all, while not being rip-offs or blatant plagiarism. Not exactly original, but there is only this much you can do with pre-existing setting and pre-existing templates instead of running Fallout: Civ Thread>>41196726>>41196804>>41196854>>41196922
>>41195619More like 6 maybe more>>41193349Should of set up a twitter, this had so much potential.
>>41196930Oh, I forgot about tribalsTribalsCave ComplexSurely, there is no better place than hide under a mountain. Even if there is no bunker out there. Especially when you are on a field trip with a class. You just keep repeating the kids one day knights from under that mountain will come and help them go back home. But what if knights won't come? Well, invent new lies. Surely those kids never saw all those films you did when back in college...A third generation of Mountain Tribe, descendants of what originally was a trip to national park. Knowledge of the Old World is now myth. Since the caves they live around are in the middle of what was originally a national park, they hardly even know there was any civilisation or old world. Just hunting grounds in the dry, semi-dead wood. And monsters that come at night to kiddnap weak.
>>41195619>>41197012Hah. These games are like freight trains, slow to start, but when they pick up speed, they pick up speed.And at least there's the old guard to keep things alive.
>>41196930You know you don't actually have to follow the exact templates per say.This game is designed to be highly flexible toward fluff.Instead of choosing any of those templates, you are entirely free to fluff up just about anything as long as it looks like it makes sense in light of the setting, and OP can categorize which of these civs it fits into.Also while like a few of your concepts, a lot of them are kind of generic and some are just redescriptions of what the categories already are. . .Here's a list of some-other civ concepts we've done before, albeit under a different OP for the same setting.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=hivemind---And yes, this system is indeed, inspired by the Fallout setting, heavily in fact.
>>41196930You don't actually give a physical or cultural description of the mutants or even really specify a specific mutation or ability.
>>41198290The point here was to quickly come up with non-BoS factions on a fly, not to write lenghtly fluff, so you can waste it later on NPCsIf it's then Fallout-esque, then godspeed and I hope the civ will die soon and horribly.>Nobody wants to have A Boy And His Dog settings>Nobody wants to have old Mad Max settings>Nobody wants to have Postman settings>Nobody wants to have Twilight Cold-War-getting-hot settings>Nobody wants to have Neuroshima settingsIt's like you hate concept of post-apo somewhere deep down>>41198371Environmental AdaptabilityHappy?
>>41198451>Nobody wants to have A Boy And His Dog settings>Nobody wants to have old Mad Max settings>Nobody wants to have Postman settings>Nobody wants to have Twilight Cold-War-getting-hot settings>Nobody wants to have Neuroshima settingsYou literally can fluff a civ based on these settings too at any time. We have had a mad max type civ before.>>41198451>Environmental AdaptabilityAll mutants have that, it's why they're the only ones who can survive in a wasteland terrain (a specific terrain which the human civ type cannot survive or start in). . .that is not even really unique.Now, the ability to turn into Ice in a Tundra terrain, or survive and release lava from their bodies onto enemies in a Volcanic terrain, or burrow through the earth with razor sharp claws in a mountainous terrain, or spew hot plasma in an irradiated wasteland terrain, then you're getting more specific with the environmental adaptation mutation.Or if you really want it to be Enviro Adaptation, knock it up 11 notches to where they are highly capable of evolving rapidly in the face of new and dangerous enviornments, giving them flexibility for us to evolve later. A good example where the Splicer mutant civ, who were capable of grafting any mutagen samples from other mutants or labs and evolving themselves, becoming very powerful after taking in so many different mutations.
Why so much hate on this civ, the enclave inspired faction sounds like fun and aren't we here to have fun?
>>41198618Maybe because we had similar threads with similar civ already twice in past moth?Variety is the spice of life, while inbreeding the same thing over and over ends with drooling morons
>>41198618I agree.Speaking of, I don't think Strelok has given us our civ Hero yet, actually we seem to have skipped that part. This is a good chance to fluff our civ leader, or maybe even some of our officers.I like to think we refer to him as the President, while all the other officers are given big and hefty titles.Security Officer - Secretary of WarChief Medical Officer - Surgeon GeneralInventory Officer - Secretary of Treasury
>>41198650Hey, not our fault others have done it before and that's pretty meta. I don't even pay attention to other civs, this is the only I even bother to play.
>>41198670>. I don't even pay attention to other civs, this is the only I even bother to play.Mind if I ask why? Just a preference? Or is there something you like about the post-apos, and hate about the other civs?
>>41198560If you fluff something from diametrically different settings into another setting, it ends with clusterfuck>Inb4 B-but that's all post-apo!And you are an idiot then>>41198560>Opening description of civ>Start of the game>Here, pick this OP gadget of yours!This is why the idea of running Not!Enclave is pure bullshit
>>41198560>You can fluff whatever you want, outside the templates!>Hey! You are not following a template!
>>41198650Ehh, didn't participate in the past post civs, but I do remember one being high tech raiders so there's that. Maybe last GM did a shit job with the civ, maybe you should make a thread and specifically say no fallout theme factions instead of bitching about it, we heard you once already stop shitposting.
>>41198670It's your fault you are playing this, thus supporting the inbreeding circle.>Playing meta>EverKill yourself. The sole fact that Strelok gave you stats showing how dangerous the world will be was a fucking mega-meta on munchkin tier, because it killed any other concepts than just doing Not!Enclave, since everyone now knows firepower is a must
>>41198684More of habit really, I have nothing against those other civs, this is just the one I've been playing for a long time and it's hard to get into the others. I have played other non post-apoc civs before though, though that was several years ago.>>41198696>Here, pick this OP gadget of yours!>Every interesting ability is OPOh I see, you just don't like fun.Those abilities aren't OP compared to some of the shit we've had to face with before, believe me there are a ton of other factions and creatures and things out there that could wreck us.

>>41198748There was an anon who chose enclave before Strelok posted the stats.
>>41198777From your post. In the very same post you are first talking how everything can be fluffed and then, TO THE SAME PERSON, bitch how he's not following a template for mutantsAnd dice gods should be secret, to avoid fucking meta.It's like all participants are meta- and power-gamers
>>41198789And then everyone followed, so what does it prove?

>>41198794>bitch how he's not following a template for mutantsNo, I was complaining that they were very generic mutants with nothing really interesting to them.They're entirely a legal choice yes, but they don't get my vote because that's kinda boring.
The reason I chose Enclave was I like the idead of being pro human and figured we needed high power weapons and armor since there's more mutants and monster than humans.>>41198807Also help research a way to control or kill easily the monster in the labs and outside.
>>41198752Please explain us all how the fuck starting with extremely powerful bonus makes civ game more fun.Because I hardly see fun when challenge is removed and you just stream-roll over everything
>>41198832Maybe that was his running platform for prez."Vote Tannery, he'll fix everything!"
>>41198823>Unless it's on fire and explodes, it's not funOkay...
>>41198852I think you fail to recognize how extremely challenging these games can be. You have no idea how powerful the enemies and the very terrain can be do you.Last civ got fucked over because a couple of idiots voted to have our heroes charge a literal eldritch abomination resulting in them all dying. Might I add, nat100 tier heroes with hugely powerful abilities and boosts.
>>41198864Pretty much. Now, you can either leave and play some other civ, or join in the actual discussion.
>>41198871>You have no idea how powerful the enemies and the very terrain can be do you.It's posted by fucking OP, before you even decided which type of civ you will be running
>>41198885The stats only give the amount and type of enemies we are likely to face. They don't even remotely encompass what the OP has in store for us, how powerful or what kind of creatures they are, or what he'll throw at us before the game even begins. They're just there for us to psuedo-plan a gamestyle.Got lots of survivors? Plan a corps and sell cool weapons or supplies. Plenty of bandits? We made a police civ so we could fight them.
>>41198912>It's not meta>But it is
>>41198912You tell him anon.
>>41198871R.I.P. High HavenR.I.P. the BossI can't believe you guys managed to get 400 people infected with MAD.
>>41198921You're still on about that?My complaint wasn't about meta in a civ game. That's expected.My complaint was that you were bringing in meta about /other/ civ games which have nothing to do with this. Who cares if others have done enclave civs, I don't because I don't pay attention to them.
>>41198934ugh, don't remind me. We were so close to getting our shit in order too. We would have been hiring those sexy robots to manufacture weapons for us from our vast scavenged supplies.
>>41198950>It's expected to play metaMaybe by meta-players
>>41198950So, let's get it straight. You don't care about other civs doing the same shit as you, but you are perfectly ok by doing the same type of meta they did?

My suggestion for midterm goals is a focus on the medical bay and the armory, which will give us weapons to fight any potential trespassers to our vault, and medecine to heal afterward. We'll secure key locations with checkpoints and barricades manned by personnel told to make regular status checks, and if possible given deadman switches that will alert us if a patrol has suddenly been killed.Once we've fortified these locations, and when we've stockpiled on medecine and weapons, we'll move on to take the more important facilities of the hyrpdoponics for food and the power hub and vehicle bay. We'll save the bulkhead for last.

Honestly, I find that civ cultures are often best developed instead of vote on "what we should be like" but when we meet other people and how we act and treat them. Diplomacy is really good for fleshing us out.That said, planning on what to do when we meet people is also important, as is having an identity we can recognize.

As they make their way over to the control panel of the bay and manually undo the lockdown, their excitement is tempered.The lofts of plants cycle vertically, bring the next set of soil-beds up and there is nothing but dry, crumbled husks of vines clinging to the growth equipment. It is the same for the next 10 tiers of growing layers before you encounter properly functioning beds again. This is disappointing in the extreme, the bay is functioning at only 20% capacity.

Rolled 69 (1d100)>>41210631Meanwhile the corrior behind the Vehicle Bay is stuffed nearly to bursting with the power-armored forms of your soldiers. The suits all stand eerily still and silent, when one of them with the triple chevrons of a Sergeant steps forward. The armored hulk rolls it's shoulders in a strangely organic stretching motion, and places the palm of one hand against the door to the Bay. The other arm proceeds, in a smooth and practiced motion, to cock back and then surge forward and punch the entire door out of its mechanism and into the room.The scene inside suddenly opens up and you see about 40 men walking around the hangar space, and one on the other side of the room near the external doors staring at his companion who has been launched into a snowdrift after being hit by the door.The man looks at his companion, then over the course of a few seconds traces the path of the door's flight back to your troops."Oh shit.RUN FOR ITT!!!!!!"
These savages are trasspassing on government property.deal with them
Rolled 44 (1d100)>>41210858And so they did, as all of them started sprinting back out into the white. None of them seemed to notice when several translucent, white cords of something descended from above the external doors and hovered in the narrow crack of the entrance/exit. Even the first few to run into the cords barely noticed being touched by them, or the way that they adhered to their clothes and began to coil up around their limbs. But then one of them was jerked up above the doors, and the screaming started. It was followed shortly by more screams as more of the fur-clad men were jerked up, and then small showers of blood afterwards when the screams went silent.After that they all seemed to notice, but all that did was incite panic. Someone started shooting, then all of them started shooting.>Unknown force has lost 20 men>Unknown force is engaging your soldiersHow would you like to proceed?>Breach and Clear!>Try to take some prisoners.>We must protect these poor innocents!

>>41210970Surely we might domesticate them instead? Or in the least capture and interogatte and find out their base of operations

Also the bump limit was reached some time ago. Threads about to kick it.I better archive this. . .
new thread is new
Rolled 28 (1d100)>>412112671. Whatever forces currently not already dispatched with the Sgt. Major, are to set up defensive positions in front of the dark passage and the bulkhead doors, in case anything tries to come and get us.2. Catalogue the armory and investigate what weapons we have in stock for distribution to our soldiers
>>41211441Yeah, I'd be up for a new thread as well.
