6 months ago, your settlement was attacked and burned to the ground by a Gnoll raiding party. Those of you who escaped managed to pick what they could from the remains and set off to find new homes. Eventually, after weeks of travelling and fending off attacks from ambitious creatures, you decide to settle in a Northward patch of grassland. The terrain is flat; allowing you to see the mountains stretching from the North to the West in the far distance and the river a few leagues before them. To the South lay wooded areas, and to the East a small fork of river points into the plains.You have spent the past few months creating a small village. The winter was harsh, claiming many lives and preventing much exploration of the area. However, now spring has come, your food supplies are running low and you have finally finished constructing the small wooden hall at the centre of your village, in which the elders convene.It is they who say that you must go forth and prosper. Bring this community into something great, and eventually destroy those who try to stop you.Size: Small VillagePopulation: 200 males, 200 femalesLivestock: 40 cattle, 30 sheep, 15 dogsFood: 2000 units / 5 turns (meats and vegetables brought from previous settlement, livestock may be slain for more food)Supplies: Furs, wood, stoneArchitecture: ThatchStructures: Small hall, crude huts, small pastureWeapons: Wooden spearsTechnology: Basic tools, basic husbandry, basic carpentryMagic: NoneDefences: NoneYou have 2 actions.

A large portion of your population head out into the plains near the village and begin to clear the land of obstructions and start to sculpt it to accommodate a stable farm environment. Whilst raking through the dirt, your people start finding small seeds that they soon plant. A small hut is built just away from the plot to house the man tasked with tending the crop, as well as his family. [Name him: Farmer (?)]The farmer soon notices that the plot is quite dry. The rain is enough to keep the plot alive and to grow, but it will be a slow process. If only there was a way to keep the ground moist.Size: Small VillagePopulation: 200 males, 200 femalesVIPs: Elders, Farmer (?)Livestock: 40 cattle, 30 sheep, 15 dogsFood: 1600 units / 4 turns (meats and vegetables brought from previous settlement, livestock may be slain for more food)Farm: Unknown seeds (1/15)Supplies: Furs, wood, stoneArchitecture: ThatchStructures: Small hall, crude huts, small pasture, farm plotWeapons: Wooden spearsTechnology: Basic tools, basic husbandry, basic carpentry, basic farmingMagic: NoneDefences: NoneYou have 2 actions.

A scouting party of 50 men heads to the South. Armed with spears, they tread carefully; more than aware of the savagery of some beings in the wilderness. The group gets no more than an hour across the plains before dark clouds roll overhead. The rain falls heavy and fast, cutting off almost all visibility. Your people try to beat their way through the weather but it’s too much. They soon turn back, soaked to the bone and shaking like leaves in the autumn wind.Meanwhile, Farmer Jack looks for a way to speed up the growth of the crops. He tries all kinds of wacky ideas, but just cannot figure out a way to keep the soil moist. He does however see storm clouds amassing to the South that should be here shortly. They may help boost the crop growth for a short period of time.Size: Small VillagePopulation: 200 males, 200 femalesVIPs: Elders, Farmer JackLivestock: 40 cattle, 30 sheep, 15 dogsFood: 1200 units / 3 turns (meats and vegetables brought from previous settlement, livestock may be slain for more food)Farm: Unknown seeds (2/15)Supplies: Furs, wood, stoneArchitecture: ThatchStructures: Small hall, crude huts, small pasture, basic farmWeapons: Wooden spearsTechnology: Basic tools, basic husbandry, basic carpentry, basic farmingMagic: NoneDefences: NoneYou have 2 actions.

Since we have a few more people now it'll go down to voting again.Here's a map of what you know. I'd say for reference that the closest water source (the 2 rivers are roughly equidistant) is 1 day's travel on foot.

>>42219177ugh that's a lot of wasted turns. not sure we should but it would mean better crops, ability to fish, and it would give a defense bonus if someone attacks across the river.decisions decisions
Farmer Jack reports to the Elders that he has figured out a way to invigorate the crops and reduce their time to grow by 5 turns. He says that a small channel dug through from the nearby river, all the way to the farm, and then cross-linked throughout the crops; should sufficiently moisturise the seedlings. The Elders discuss, and predict that the task could be accomplished in 6 turns. you can use both actions to complete it twice as fastMeanwhile another villager recalls a time at the previous settlement, where he and a friend would interweave reeds into a lattice shape; casting them into a nearby stream to catch small fish. He believes that, if we can find reeds at the riverbank, he can replicate this and allow us to fish the waters for anything that swims within.Size: Small VillagePopulation: 200 males, 200 femalesVIPs: Elders, Farmer JackLivestock: 40 cattle, 30 sheep, 15 dogsFood: 800 units / 2 turns (meats and vegetables brought from previous settlement, livestock may be slain for more food)Farm: Unknown seeds (3/15)Supplies: Furs, wood, stoneArchitecture: ThatchStructures: Small hall, crude huts, small pasture, basic farmWeapons: Wooden spearsTechnology: Basic tools, basic husbandry, basic carpentry, basic farming, irrigation, fishing netsMagic: NoneDefences: NoneYou have 2 actions.

Your people decide that after extended scouting, there is a better place to live. Thus, over the next few weeks; they dismantle their buildings, abandon the farm and vacate to a new place. “Aroostook”.The journey used a lot of resources, and it is now apparent that food is at an all-time low. Half of the cattle were slaughtered in the move and the farms had to be dug up to retrieve the seeds for later use. This new area sits beside a 20ft wide river, with a moderate current. There are also a couple of wooded areas nearby, large trees that probably accommodate hidden life. Luckily, there are a few reeds nearby, which the young man from earlier notices straight away and sets to gathering.Size: Small VillagePopulation: 200 males, 200 femalesVIPs: Elders, Farmer JackLivestock: 20 cattle, 30 sheep, 15 dogsFood: [critical] 400 units / 1 turn (meats and vegetables brought from previous settlement, livestock may be slain for more food)Farm: Unknown seeds (0/15)Supplies: Furs, wood, stoneArchitecture: ThatchStructures: Small hall, crude huts, small pastureWeapons: Wooden spearsTechnology: Basic tools, basic husbandry, basic carpentry, basic farming, irrigation, fishing netsMagic: NoneDefences: NoneYou have 2 actions.

Rolled 38 (1d100)>>42220284That's an excellent idea.This way we could all march towards the enemy in unisson in case the worst comes to bear, and in any case rule of cool determines we must pursue this venue for the greater glory.We also must do something to appease those amongst our ranks who dare entertain triplets are not a signal of power, but that's not a big deal and can be bumped down the priority list.Rolling just in case.
>>42220317I would say green, one river is all we need to irrigate, and settling on a floodplain would turn out like mesopotamia, floods and invasions due to no natural backstop
Your people straight away tend to creating nets for fishing. As soon as the basic fishing nets are created they are put to use. After a week of fishing an interesting grey-coloured catfish, it becomes apparent that a constant fishing presence can sustain the populace, but it will cost 1 action each turn.Meanwhile, Farmer Jack recreates his farm and gets people to help him replant the seeds. After a few calculations, he works out that it will take only 2 turns to dig irrigation channels for the farm.The Elders look out at the river that may serve as our lifeline in hard times to come. Swimming it may be dangerous if we wish to cross, but they are sure that it can serve us in other ways than just defense.Size: Small VillagePopulation: 200 males, 200 femalesVIPs: Elders, Farmer JackLivestock: 20 cattle, 30 sheep, 15 dogsFood: 1000 units / 2 turns (livestock may be slain for more food)Farm: Unknown seeds (1/15)Supplies: Furs, wood, stoneArchitecture: ThatchStructures: Small hall, crude huts, small pasture, farmWeapons: Wooden spears, netsTechnology: Basic tools, basic husbandry, basic carpentry, basic farming, irrigation, fishing netsMagic: NoneDefences: RiverYou have 2 actions.

>>42220284Aw shit, didn't notice the mountains at first. We already lost half our cattle whilst moving though, but it might be a good location for a potential second settlement.
>>42220363We can plant a board on one end of the river, tie rope to it, have one guy swim across, plant another board, and string a traverse. People could hang crawl across like sloths, and slide goods across. Not wasting an action, just an idea
>>42220317green river is too weak to power stuff and has less fishred is no where near wood source.>>42220390yeah, mining camp in the future. or if we're lucky the river might pass a mountain so we can ferry ore easier.

Following the river to the East, your scouts find that the river is threateningly enclosed by trees on each side, with more mountains towering to the South. The scouts head on for a few days, the river seems endless. They head back, but can’t help but feel uneasy when travelling through the forested area. They even go as far as wading through the water at knee-length to avoid going to deep into the woods. Somebody is watching you.The scouting party of 10 that head to the West follow around a few bends, with nothing but plains as far as the eye can see. A couple of days later, they come into a fork in the river. It is here that they came under attack. The 3 people that return report that they had rains of spears thrown down on them. Large shadows stood on the banks looking down and throwing death down at them. One of the scouts swear that he saw a blaze of flame engulfing one of the others as he ran away.In other news, those who remained behind built a small shack at the river edge full of spare nets, fish bait and crates to store fish in. However, it currently isn’t possible to store the fish as they decay too quickly.>If you want to continually fish enough to sustain your people, you can have a single action per turn, and have the other always dedicated to fishing (until told otherwise)Size: Small VillagePopulation: 193 males, 200 femalesVIPs: Elders, Farmer JackLivestock: 20 cattle, 30 sheep, 15 dogsFood: 1000 units / 2 turns (livestock may be slain for more food)Farm: Unknown seeds (2/15)Supplies: Furs, wood, stoneArchitecture: ThatchStructures: Small hall, crude huts, small pasture, farm, fisheryWeapons: Wooden spears, netsTechnology: Basic tools, basic husbandry, basic carpentry, basic farming, irrigation, fishing netsMagic: NoneDefences: Vertrose RiverYou have 2 actions.

>>42220949It is not the most pressing thing in the list so far, but we should really increase our knowledge of architecture to both increase the quality of our settlement to ensure an easier time with survival, as well as being able to create a good enough bridge to get across the river. You said that it is 20 feet across so it is very easy to assume that we are not even getting nearly as many fish as we can so far. If we can do this then sustaining ourselves off of fish might not have to be an entire action.

Your men take their basic shovels and begin to dig the channels for the farm irrigation. They begin from the river’s edge, and start excavating at an incline towards the farm. Other already at the farm start digging small cross channels alongside lanes of seedlings to ensure efficient watering. The work will take another week before the channels can be linked and for the farm to be irrigated completely.>1 more action needs dedicating to this build before it can be usedMeanwhile, the fishermen stall their catching and construct a small structure alongside the fishery. It is essentially a net draped along frames of timber and posted into the riverbed. It allows the current to flow through the cage, whilst keeping the fish that are caught and in excess within and alive. Currently, per turn, you are fishing 200 units of fish in excess.

The farm is finished and irrigated! Despite that, Farmer Jack is sure that he can decrease the time by even more in the future.The village celebrates with a small festival in the middle of the village.

>>42222049dude, just fish instead. all we can do with the milk is put it in wooden buckets, it will spoil in 1 day.
>>42222003now that i think about it, i dont think we can make bows for quite a while. we can't really make a good string for bows.we need shearing equipment to get wool, then we need to spin that into something useful.
>>42222194Bowstrings were made from animal sinew. Just butcher something
The fishermen continue, getting more and more proficient with their nets. It’s possible that they may soon have a new idea for more efficient fishing.The Elders demand that a logging camp is to be built at the edge of the nearby woods. The men get to building it from thatch, excited that it may be the last thatch building they may have to build. They get the camp halfway completed. There is a yard to chop wood, houses to store it and even a room to whittle and carve it. The men who are tasked with guarding the village at night decide that they need some ranged combat capabilities. One man claims that throwing shortened spears through some sort of device could work. After a week of testing; they come up with a fur sling that can fling arrows at their enemies. It isn’t the best weapon for throwing arrows, but it’s all they could think up at the moment.As time has passed amongst the villagers, the bounty of love has flourished. Your population has grown slightly; but with it, the need for food.

The logging camp is complete. With it, the men who remain nearby to farm the lumber and turn it into planks or other usable materials. Whilst shaping the wood and testing it, they work out how to shape it to their will in a more advanced manner.> + Intermediate Carpentry> + Wooden ArchitectureThe others continue fishing. One man presents an idea to the rest of the fishermen. He uses a strand of catgut attached to a small wooden spike to fish from nearer the centre of the river. The other laugh at him, saying that he can only catch one fish at a time. They soon go quiet. The fish that the man catch are much larger and of different colours and shapes to the others. Before long, the nets are all but abandoned; and the sight of groups of men sat on the riverbank, lines cast; becomes commonplace.Size: Small VillagePopulation: 250 males, 250 females [growth 1/10]VIPs: Elders, Farmer JackLivestock: 30 cattle, 40 sheep, 25 dogsFood: 1250 units / 2 turns (livestock may be slain for more food)Farm: Unknown seeds (6/10)Supplies: Furs, wood, stone, timberArchitecture: Thatch, WoodStructures: Small hall, crude huts, small pasture, irrigated farm, advanced fishery, logging campWeapons: Wooden spears, nets, arrow slingsTechnology: Basic tools, basic husbandry, intermediate carpentry, basic farming, irrigation, intermediate fishing, arrow slingsMagic: NoneDefences: Vertrose River

>>42222843i second this but instead of scouting i think we should look into archery using catgut as a string and looking into other as a glue to bind the wood
>[EVENT]Nightfall. The dogs are barking. The livestock are unsettled. The guards douse the fires and look out attentively across the plains.Before long, figures can be seen heading towards the village drawing a cart. They look small. There are around 20 of them, and they are about 100ft away. They must have spotted the village, as they are heading straight to you. They have no lights, and are nothing more than silhouettes under the dim moonlight.What do you do?

>>42222944Let's not be chaotic stupid pls
>>42222983dont think we have warriors. and we probably shouldnt risk getting an elder killed
>>42222987I said to forget the buildings, not the defenses you listed. We can remain in straw huts while we have a sturdy wall for a while.
>>42223004If they harm the three men, we engage seven samurai style If they dont , we'll let them in
>>42223015Able bodied men, then
>>42223015We have enough men with weapons to defend against 20 strangers, our elder will be guarded of course.
>>42223056Leave the elder in the village, send 3 men with the elders interests at heart
>>42222916Send the elder out with as many men as we can muster in a moment's notice, weapons in tow.
>>42223028That's fair, I thought you meant to just straight up ambush them.>>42223056>>42223086So, an advance party, then allow a representative of theirs to enter the village and meet with our elders?
>[EVENT]100 men take up spears and head out, escorting one of the elders. They take torches and hold them high, trying to look as intimidating as possible whilst looking to see who approaches.Soon, the figures come into view.Dwarves.They are not warriors. They are ragged and practically carrying their homes on their backs. They are bandaged and bloodied, and it soon becomes apparent that they wagon is carrying wounded Dwarves."Hail Humans!" The leader shouts."We come to you not as foes, but as beggars. A great host of Gnolls and Goblins descended into our halls and began a grand slaughter. We are the survivors.""Please, allow us refuge. We can work, and we will not get in your way. Just let us rebuild alongside you, and let us reach strength to reclaim our home."As the cart stops a a few meters away, the Ox that draws it collapses into a heap on the floor. You see some of the Dwarves are almost at the point of joining it.What do you do?
>>42223125Yes Make it good op
>>42223136Ask if they will comply to a search. After deeming they are telling the truth, we feed them. Keep a light guard on them all night. In the morning, we talk of mines!
>>42223136Well, we've a mutual foe, we'd be fools not to take them in, it should bond us that gnolls destroyed both our homes.
Rolled 87 (1d100)>>42223136Let them in of course! Also get them to share any secrets of stonecutting or architecture. With their help we can make a truly formidable defense.
Rolled 76 (1d100)>>42223136Dorfs means engineering, I say we take them in and set them to work on the walls after a long night's rest and breakfast
We should agree to help them provided they teach us their smithing and other desired skills to pay their way
>>42223262Let's just let them live with us and be the designated smiths and craftsmen. We need to get a macerator going to separate ore from rock
>>42223136>>42223189Also, lets butcher their newly deceased oxen and feast on MEAT
>>42216468Fenrir I may need some advixe about cv game design, would it be ok to email? Also yeah, Dwarves as a free labor caste.
>>42223297IF they want to stay.for now they can help us with the palisade.>>42223328nah we shouldnt exploit them
>>42223357Induct them into our society, treat them as human craftsmen. We should look into professional soldiering
The Dwarves are welcomed into your village with open arms. Over the next week, your people replace all of your structures with wood, and build a crude palisade of sharpened trunk in a horseshoe shape around your community.The Dwarves show an interest in becoming miners, smiths and builders for you in time. Your relationship with these small people is a brittle one. You are friends on the surface; but your people are more than aware of their gluttony.Things are looking good for your people, and who knows?

>>42223986Witter? More like Bitter. HahahahahahahahaNo, but for real thanks for making the initial template friend, I enjoy these threads
>>42224061look, im not mad at you, i just see things differently when it comes to my work, not to mention maybe we can all come together (me,you,jyoti,crog,crucible,slow) and make a "cm guide" could be fun and would probably be a huge help to the community, let me know
>>42224238Here is the advice rec based Fenrir >>42224156I for one,support our New Aesir overlords.
>>42224156I thought Jyoti and Slow stuck with their own long-running threads these days?But yeah I'm up for that for sure. Anything to get more people interested in running and maintaining Civs is a bonus for me.
>>42224269Checking it out now.

>>42224279anyway i can contact you? let me know- and as far as jyoti, im not sure if he will actually have time but i will ask him none-the-less; as far as slow, im pretty sure he'll do it.- as far as the credits, im very happy and will be also happy to help you with it (because tyr was actually the "designer" and i was more the "idea guy" although he did pitch in many times)>>42224269tyr does not have very much time as of lately, although i will be browsing alot more
civ threads have been an ongoing collective effort for at least six years now, all of you got into it with the snowball already rolling and there's no way to give everybody who has put effort into it creditjust keeping it anonymous is the way to go, I'm sure people can fulfil their attention craving some other way
>>42224391Just made a new email: email@example.comGlad we've sorted it now though.>>42224456Yeah I know, I've been in them for about 3 years. Actually got into them through a couple being posted on /b/ back when I used to browse that shithole.>>42224372 Still reading, but I'll post in the general thread when I'm done :)
>>42224492Yayz.Thanks based Trannyspawn Apocalypse Wolf
>>42224456that may be true but the golden age of civs started maybe a year or two ago with (imo) CyclopsOP and is still going strong, and you're retarded with this "anonymous" thing, its better to have a count and an identity when this is basically roleplaying (making and building a civ) with a large group>>42224492agreed,also were you in the cyclopsOP threads? those were 13/10 everytime
>>42224609I think I lurked a few. They were good but a bit too detailed if I remember correctly. I have a memory like a sieve so aren't sure.
>>42224695im sorry did you just say "too detailed" does not computeanyways im going to email you later on and we'll talk
>>42224724I'm not sure, I thought that they had modifiers on things as simple as weather and type of clothing. Am I thinking of something else? Because it just struck me as a little too much info. I like my Civs to have an even balance of narrative-driven story as well as conflict-resolution from rolls and stats.But cool, it'll probably be morning (where I'm from) before I check it, it's pretty late here.
>>42224798no, it was the one with the blue female child cyclops in the OP picture, he had a cool concept with an amazing storyline (and a cool format of doing his roll results, which i might copy when i finish my setting)and ok np
>>42224609this golden age thing is highly debateable, and the experience of taking part in a storytelling process with anonymous strangers has always been part of the appeal, means of long term identification being used sparsely mainly to provide continuityif you feel the need to single yourself out to feel special go ahead by all means, just don't make the assumption this need is generalized
>>42224892of course its highly debatable its my opinion>if you feel the need to single yourself outlol no its nothing like that its to seperate yourself and have a voice that is identifiable in civ gamesi dont have a name in any other threads
