>>42403273Stupid. Personally steal a wagonload of hay, then create scarecrows to infiltrate every nearby farming town. Wait for the blood moon, bring them all to life and watch the terror spread.Plus, the supernatural events linked with the lunar phenomenon mean that nobody will attribute it to a warlord in the area. It's just some stupid magic thing.

>>42403739but what are are hay wagons made of, anon?
>>42403790Plus scarecrows are made of scrap wood. Sticks and broken broom handles. You could gather enough wood for an army of scarecrows just by going for a walk in the woods.
>>42403826In the spooky evilskull woods, no less.
Okay I'm back. It seems that the spooky scarecrow idea is winning out. seems like a good time to explain gold.Most materials can be purchased with gold, such as hay. Since hay is so cheap, you could purchase 5 units of hay for 1 gold. to get wood, you would pay 1 gold per 2 units of wood. etc. Purchasing doesn't count as an action.In addition to buying materials, some more advanced units require gold to create. Hell, you could probably research and make a gold golem if you were so inclined.If you were to send worklings or golems to steal hay, there is a chance (depending on the roll, I'll make my own secret roll as a counter) that your golems will be discovered. frightened peasants wont attack a large golem, but if the town guard musters in time a battle could take place and possibly gain you some notoriety.With that in mind, what is the preferred course of action?
>>42404164Clarification: Who are we buying from again? The black market of goblins, rascals, and scallywags?
>>42404164Let's use some of that excess gold to buy hay and cheap wood for scarecrows.Then, we'll silently deposit them a few days before the full moon in whatever village we wish to target. On the full moon, activate them and have them go on a murderous, suicidal rampage. Villagers blame supernatural forces, their defenses are weakened.
>>42404164I said to personally steal it. We are a character, right? That's why we had to pick an archetype?I'm just in favor of breaking down the civ rules a bit and interacting more with the world, since it's a quest and you can really do what you want with your mechanics.
>>42404230We should try to kidnap some villagers if we can. Spies and all that
>>42404283I'd say thats too early. plus are the golems even subtle enough for that?
>>42404205>>42404252ok, I suppose I was vague. Gold is super magically-alchemically reactive, and can be transmuted into any material based on the value. And you obviously know some basic magic, as you're making golems.And yes, you are a character, and can personally go out to steal stuff, but will put yourself at risk. In fact you can do one on one fights with heroes (which is one of warlord's specialties) once you have to deal with them.
>>42404355Fuck it then, lets go all in and transmute some gold for our spooky dealings.
>>42404355So we can turn gold into hay and wood?Fuck it, let's just do that. We're sitting in a pretty big gold surplus right now, and neither of those two materials are particularly valuable so we'll probably get pretty decent exchange rates on them.Then we go ahead with Operation Spooky Scarecrows.
>>42404355So we can turn gold into lead! HAHAHAHA EAT IT SCIENCE!But seriously thats nice to know. Anyway, I'm okay with setting up for the blood moon harvest and as a bonus while we wait can we try and figure out the trade routes? It'd be alot easier to steal the goods in transit than from a town directly.
Rolled 8 (1d20)>>42404164>>42404355Also in favour of the spooky scarecrow idea.Can we research any explosives, as well? I got an idea.
>>42404465Scarecrow suicide bombers?Pic related, it's my face.
>>42404483Hay is easy to come by according to >>42404164If we just spam bomber scarecrows, we can conquer the world within a week.>ooh arrr, Jimmy, where'd you get all them scarycrows?>well Rod, some guy were selling them for real cheap just up the road. Bought meself a round dozen!>if 'e's still there I'm gonna buy myself a handful!If we can get even distribution around local farms we don't even need to invade the towns. We can just hold the town's crops hostage and extort all we need.>allahu ackbar
Jesus when we finally get discovered they are going to call us the King of Terrors or something.
>>42402945going back to Mr. 58 over here, is it agreed upon that we put research to golem appendages (20), and upgrade the dungeon with traps (19) while you create (lets say 5) scarecrows.(I just got the image of a scarecrow golem that steals children wandering fields at night, you know, terrifying.)
>>42404714>(I just got the image of a scarecrow golem that steals children wandering fields at night, you know, terrifying.)I'm okay with that. I'm not okay with recruiting spies or releasing people, mainly because I don't want anyone to know we exist until it's way too late.
>>42404640I'm going to have to vote for this. It's too fucking devious and terrifying not to vote for.Next turn:Research Tech - AlchemyResearch Tech - ExplosivesResearch Tech - Combustible substances
>>42404640While I'd like to think that'd work remember you're dealing with a peasant whos about as smart as dirt and more easily frightened than a anorexic girl by doughnuts at everything. You'd have to make an example out of one and get attention from EVERYONE since stuff like exploding scarecrows is gonna turn heads.Plus you wouldn't have a real chance in hell of intimidating the local lords and their toadies like that. Stuckup holier-than-thou idoits would just let the peasants suffer and rally an army to lay siege.It'd be easier to slowly work them up into total "2spooky4me" territory and steal everything that isn't nailed down at night when they're too scared shitless to poke their heads out.
>>42404791>It'd be easier to slowly work them up into total "2spooky4me" territory and steal everything that isn't nailed down at night when they're too scared shitless to poke their heads out.This. Have them hiding in their homes making up exaggerated ghost stories of what the scarecrows get up to at night. The best thing about this plan, is that when they send a cowardly lawman to investigate, we can spook them. When they send a tough hero, the scarecrows can do ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.Of course they might get a little too brave and try to destroy the scarecrows in daytime. We should completely crush the first village that tries it overnight, just smash the place to the ground.
>>42404791>bunch of farmers buy scarecrows a shady traveler was selling for cheap>a week later, they explode violently, torching their fields>word travels about exploding scarecrows, people stop using them>suddenly, scarecrows begin wandering onto people's fields in the middle of the night, and then standing still as though they've been there forever>whenever someone tries to take them down, they explode, killing the tamperer and torching the field>townships begin to set up watchmen to patrol the fields at night and make sure no scarecrows get in>scarecrows just begin throwing themselves at town walls, houses, and taverns instead, walking up to them methodically and then exploding right out side, torching everything>humanity is reduced to nomadic hunter gatherers as every attempt at rebuilding civilized society ends in a swarm of exploding scarecrows>mfw scarecrows killed the world
>>42404714Almost didn't see this. I'm completely fine with this. Though we seem to need to hammer out the scarecrow plan.
>>42404942Too direct, not spooky enough
>>42404942While amusing I'd like to keep society intact.Its easier to get tribute that way.
Next turn, we should make a Titan golem from iron. Seeing how we're not limited to the human form(assuming here), we should give it a mine flail mounted at head level. The torso should be able to turn 360 degrees, and have a few saw blades on its arms. Mine flails will turn even the most armored troops into pulp, and saws can deal with agile people
>>42404714(20) you decide golems need not be restricted by the limits of man, and quickly discover how to provide them with extra limbs, it will cost 10 extra of the main material (ie 10 extra stone, 10 extra iron, 10 extra wood) but will increase combat effectiveness. it will also cost 10 to upgrade a current golem.(19) you use your previous research on traps to install a pressure plate and iron sawblade into the entrance, giving anyone who tries to sneak in a very unpleasant surprise. -10 iron.() you purchase 176 wood and 200 hay, costing 128 gold. out of this, you construct five of your new golem. You muse to yourself 'scarecrow? more like terrifypeasant.'> -128 gold> +1 wood> new research (extra limbs)EVENT:while supervising the installation of the traps, you hear some coughing outside. You silently crawl up to the entrance and see past the bushes you're hiding behind. A filthy peasant, half full bottle of moonshine in one hand. most likely Scumwalk is missing the village idiot. If you were to leave him alone, he may discover your dungeon and bring back friends, if you kill him, a search party may be sent out.>What do you do with him?
>>42405057I say we make a worm golem for mining and (possibly) rapid deployment of troops.

>>42405199>>42405226>>42405241>>42405247the consensus seems to be kill him, how would you do so? would you personally do it (probably a good tutorial for how combat works) or would you send a golem to do him in? (also a good tutorial on how commanding combat works)

>>42405435>>42405669Seems like there's also the desire to spook him.You quickly beckon one of the scarecrows to approach, and give it the order to scare the man. You find a seat and watch the show.The drunk mumbles to himself as he wanders around, cursing about some wench from the tavern. The scarecrow sneaks up behind him, each lumbering step surprisingly silent. The man quickly turns around and is face to face with the scarecrow, which stands perfectly still. In response, he screams and swings his bottle at the scarecrow. The scarecrow takes the first hit like a champ, the hay absorbing all of the weak blow, but the poorly made bottle shatters on the wood within, and the next strike may damage the scarecrow. (ever so slightly)For combat, 3 people will roll 1d20. these will total to be a number out of 60 (doing it this way so participation can be up) The higher the number, the better the result. If a natural 20 is in there, or a natural 1, there is a chance of a critical success or failure, depending on the other rolls.
Rolled 2 (1d20)>>42405844

Rolled 2 (1d20)>>42405844Scarecrow stays perfectly still.And then, as he seems to calm down, it turns it's head to look straight into his eyes.
God damn these dice. We either fail or succeed on epic scale.
>>42405885>>42405888>>42405913(18/60) The scarecrow moves to grab the drunk's arm while he was swinging, and ends up taking a glancing blow to the arm. Good thing this guy is awful at fighting, or else that wound would take materials to fix. Seeing the scarecrow move, the drunk screams even louder, turns tail and starts sprinting away.Should you leave him be, seeing as nobody will believe him, and if they did he probably wouldn't be able to find the place again, or should you send the scarecrow after him, in an attempt to silence him for good?
>>42406007Ignore him. No one will believe this story. If we follow him there's a chance someone else will spot us.
>>42405957More like ebin scale, amirite.
>>42406007Let him run. We can work with this later as some drunkards rumor goes around about a killer scarecrow.Then one morning a few scarecrows nobody put up are around.
Rolled 5 (1d20)>>42406007Leave him, there's no point chasing him now, it'll only make it worse.Meanwhile! Make more scarycrows.We also need some decent weapons that scarecrows can carry. Research pitchfork-holding hands!
>>42406099Nah, give them assassin's creed style wrist blades. Who's going to leave a good pitchfork out in a field?
>>42406032>>42406064>>42406086>>42406099It seems the consensus is to let the guy run away. You take stock in your base.Materials:>372 gold>215 stone>60 iron>1 woodUnits:>10 stone golems>5 sawblade golems>5 scarecrow>20 worklingsBase:>Trapped entry room (battle)>Large room (battle)>Golem workshop (passive)>Treasure room (passive)There are two types of rooms, passive and battle. the names are fairly self explanatory, passive rooms serve various purposes, but are generally ill suited to battle, and if battle occurs in them valuable items may be damaged. battle rooms are designed for battle, your units gain bonuses to fighting in them and are very defensible.now is also a good time to explain how to initiate raids.The roll to initiate a raid is how quickly and efficiently you enter the area. a 1 would mean that the guards had hours to prepare and are completely defending all valuable locations. a 20 means that the guards were caught off guard, most asleep or unaware. Once a raid starts, you command the units as they enter battles and steal loot. Eventually the guard will muster and most likely be able to chase off your army, so you must choose when to retreat. You can only raid once per turn.

Hey SteelyWheel. I would like to run a companion quest for this DK game where we build (an) adventurer(s) to throw at this world. I was just going to post it but thought better of it and wanted to ask here. If you'd rather talk about this at the end of the thread, that is fine too.
>>42406507>>42406544(here's a quick map of your current dungeon.)(19) research tails - you quickly realize that in addition to arms, you can make tails. these will work great for balancing purposes of much larger golems, and can be equipped with special weapons in the future(14) golem upgrade. You choose 5 of your stone golems and construct extra arms for them (-50 stone) these golems are slightly stronger in combat, and once given weapons may be truly fearsome.(20) It has been long enough, it is time to raid Scumwalk. Your army is strengthened and can handle any attacks. The units you bring with you are 5 stone golems, 5 sawblade golems, 5 multi arm golems, and 2 of your scarecrows. (either to use in assault or hide in town once you are done.)The other 3 scarecrow and your worklings defend the base in case of curious locals.Give me a few minutes to sketch a map of Scumwalk, brainstorm strategies.
>>42406742I'm all for collaboration, seeing as it can even get competitive in a (hopefully) fun way. Mind mentioning some more details about it?
>>42406760Stone golems tank. Unless we managed ot pick the town with a resident wizard they'll take insane punishment to kill.Sawblades for flanking and crowd control. They'll be terror units grinding up anyone dumb enough to fuck with the stoners.Multi arms lead up the looting and blitz any fucker dumb enough to stand in the way.Scarecrows fade into the fields nobody'll realize its happened and they can be useful in shenanigans invovling terrorizing these hicks.
>>42406760Send the saw blades running down the Main Street, kill as many as possible. Meanwhile, the 4 arms will attack from a perpendicular angle. The rest of the golems are going to be looting
Rolled 8 (1d20)As the thread is doing right now, we're going to attract adventurer attention really fast. Unless we play with the "scarecrows are a common phenomena" thing we're going to get a hero on our asses pretty quick. Spook = evil, and that may attract the attention of a paladin or group of priests.I recommend taking a few days to find a disorderly in a tavern and pay them to spread rumors about the scarecrows being migrants from all round, and then spreading out their activity. Hopefully, they won't be tied to the golem attacks and our warlord can operate with some degree of safety. After all, our only concealment is bushes at the moment.Can we make a door golem? Like, block off the cave mouth but make the mouth itself a golem? Maybe can even crush a couple adventurers who manage to go through if we can get it smart enough. Rolling research [stationary defense golems]
>>42406829Remember we'll be on a time limit even with a nat 20. Thats why I wanna blitzkrieg it with this >>42406828After the initial charnel house we put focus on what we want which is iron. Grab whatever's not nailed down and play it by ear depending on dice gods favor/wrath and how much we loot.I'm fully expecting murphy to say hi and want to tie up what's left of the guard in a single spot where they're easier to manage early on before they get wise.
>Research Spellsaws>ResearchStationary Defense GolemsLet's have multi-armed scarecrow scorpion spellsaw golems.
>>42406887We'll get attention eitherway plus we don't exactly have anyone...usable as a spymaster. At least not yet anyway.Once this raids said and done they'll hopefully be whipped up into bit of a panic. Thats where scarecrow shenanigans will start to keep the peasantry scared shitless. I'd rather deal with wanna be heroes in groups of 3-6 than some lordling and his 500+ mob battering the gates. To make sure that doesn't happen we have to terrify them so only the bravest (and dumbest) come gunning for us.collaborative effort here guys. pipe up

>>42406760The guardhouse is where the guards spawn from. your golems could easily take down a small squad of guards, but the full garrison could well be in the 100s.The sentry tower, if trouble is spotted, will light a flame to alert the guardhouse, causing guards to mobilize quicker.Businesses hold goldthe mines hold ironresidential buildings hold small amounts of gold and wood, but you build notoriety much faster by destroying them.The church has large amounts of gold and materials, but you take massive notoriety for looting the church, as well as possible ire from a holy order. If you manage to take the town hall and guard house, you conquer the village and can either subjugate it, which will provide small amounts of materials forever, or pillage it, which will grant a massive amount of gold and materials, but gain notoriety.At this point you aren't strong enough to conquer the village, but certainly to loot it.>What is your battle strategy?
>>42407035Right. Serious pants on guys what do we want and how bad do we want it?Steely's flat out said we can't win this so its entirely about getting the loot we can and getting the fuck out with minimal losses.
>>42407087Let's just take the shit in the mine.
>>42407035Send a couple of scarecrows to the sentry, have them climb to the place with the fire. No one is allowed in. Send everyone else to the mines. We're doing a smash and grab, any fight is going to go against us. If we can, we leave no trace, just a couple of dead guards and a whole lot of missing iron
>>42406796I was thinking of having an adventurer find out about the plans going on in this thread here but being too weak to do anything about it and questing into other dungeons and territories to try and get strong enough to kill us here.
You know what we need?Explosives.Just blow the Barracks the fuck out.
>>42407087I think this is a good bet. Our best fighters occupy the main enemy force, our weaker stone golems take what they can from the mine and leave, our scarecrow golems scout out the business section for anything valuable and have the multi-arm golems support them and carry the found goods.
>>42407162As long as you can get a group of people that want to do it, go nuts.
>>42407166Later anon. the road to global domination is paved with corpses and little steps.>>42407139>>42407168>>42407106Seems like we're dead set on the mines. Do we want to focus on all the iron we can or hit the business district too for some gold?I'm down for just iron since we've got a okay stock of gold. maybe hit the merchants if the fight goes hilariously in our favor right out the gate.
>>42407168Remember, you're there too and you can swing a sword.You have iron plate armor, an iron longsword, and an iron shield.
>>42407239Wait, can we use part of the Golem Research and implement it into our armor?
>>42407272Power armor?Fuck yeah.
>>42407228The merchant section probably has a blacksmith, so it's worth checking out. Might have a magic item shop too.>>42407239Gotta be in the business section group.
>>42407162I'm up for it.Can we be the village idiot that no one believes?
>>42407272If that's what you want, then you can hop in some fantasy power armor and go nuts. with research of course.But, you may not be able to use some items. Which while fighting heroes, you may very well find rare and powerful equipment.
>>42407302Ooh, let's do full body armor, with the visage of a Scarecrow, with an extra pair of arms and a tail that ends in a Sawblade Stinger. And if OP accepts >>42407018 , a Spellsaw Stinger instead.
>>42407302It would also let us recruit people easily. >hey buddy, you want to be able to punch through plate at level 1?
>>42407330>be the town drunk>you know of this warlord with constructs and you must be the one to stop him>no one else will believe you>you have dabbled in a bit of swordplay/magic
>>42407204Do you have any established lore for this world like town names or other characters or can things just be improvised in a similar tone?
>>42407330It's up >>42407368 here
Alright lets brass tack it.Go with >>42407168Lead the forces personally where?Pay attention to the fight and bail when we've had enough loot taken.Play by ear as the fight progresses. If we look like the guards are going to overwhelm us book it. In the end minions are expendable not us.
>>42407398It's mostly improvised as I go, there are a few things I've already decided, such as the races that live in areas, and a few figureheads (ie there exists a king of Britonlandia, there is a grand Doge of knot-venise.) I think some places you can guess the race, like dwarfholm and dwarfgier.I trust that, on a board of worldbuilders and storytellers, other people are good at worldbuilding and storytelling. So if you wanna make up some towns and kings and places, by all means go ahead.
We should research magic sigils after this. Those could be used for a variety of things. We could stick them on constructs, or use them as traps for defence, for example.
>>42407526Yeah, that's what I was planning:>>42406967
>>42407496>Doge>KnotI know that wasn't the intention, but...
>>42407472>>42407228>>42407139Consensus seems to be the three squad plan. storm the mines with stone golems, distract guards with sawblades and few multi arms, and loot businesses with scarecrows, multi arms and yourself.Y/N?
>>42407576You head in, of the three squads you arrive at the business district first. passing by storefronts you can see people locking doors and cowering in fear, the scarecrows peer into the windows for ominous effect. Roll 1d20 to see how looting goes.The assault squad barrels down the center immediately catches the attention of a small patrol of guards (9 guards), fairly close to the sentry tower roll 1d20 for combat.the looting squad barges through the mine entrance to find several miners at work, as well as several loaded minecarts. they scatter, but quickly form a small squad of resistance (14 miners) roll 1d20 for combat.Enemy types:Guard:+morale (defending home)*avg combat ability (trained soldier)Miner:-morale (just doing their job)-combat (no training)Works as advertised, roll 3 times like we did for the drunk.

(16/60) looting businesses- tearing through the area you barely find any loot, the people are either too poor, or hid their valuables very quickly. You grunt as you slay a father in front of his child, breaking open the money chest hidden behind the counter of the butchers shop. +50 gold(51/60) fighting guards- The sawblade golems eviscerate three guards before they could blink, in the process slashing the supports of the sentry tower, sending it toppling and crushing another guard. the multi arm golems manage to block any attack towards the sawblade golems, and it is not long before the guards are only left as a bloody pile of guts.(33/60) fighting miners- the miners are surprisingly coordinated, though that doesn't stop them from dying in a sickening crunch as four are crushed by golems. as it turns out however, pickaxes are surprisingly good at breaking stone (gee, i wonder why) and they manage to break apart and destroy one stone golem. They don't have much time to revel as the other golems quickly stomp down the offenders. a total of 8 miners have died, compared to one golem. the remaining miners flee.The assault team, moving forward, sees that the barracks are alive and soldiers begin entering formations, with reach weapons such as spears and a few halberds to counter the close range combat of golems. Warhammers and heavy mattocks can also be spotted. There is still quite some time before they can mobilize however.>Roll 1d20 for stone golem looting.>Any other, special actions you want to take?
Rolled 16 (1d20)>>42408088Special action-Set fire to the business sectionIt'll be a useful distraction when we escape
Rolled 2 (1d20)>>42408088Send the saw golems at the guards. Hit them from the side, so the pole arms can't negate our close up power
Rolled 15 (1d20)>>42408088
Rolled 15 (1d20)Kind of surprised the town guard practice with mattocks of all things. They've obviously had to try and fight off constructs before.>>42408088Shift the merchant party to the mines after setting a fire. its slim pickings there. Assault team presses the advantage as cover, once we've secured the iron we get the fuck out of town whlie they panic over the fire.
Just gonna leave this herehttp://nwn.wikia.com/wiki/Demonflesh_golemsummoning dead demons should be cheaper than the living ones
>>42408152>>42408278>>42408293The mattocks aren't the best weapon, and the guards can be clumsy with them, but the world is wrought with danger and it is a mining town, often a spirit might inhabit the mines and stir up an angry golem or two if the miners do not respect the spirits.(16/20) Start a fire- You quickly light a fire, using the stone multi arm golems to grab burning wood and toss them into intact buildings, spreading the fire. The effect is immediate as a contingent of guards splits off and hurries to the scene of the fire. By the time they arrive your looters are long gone and have arrived at the mines to aid the stone golems.(15/20) loot the mine- As the golems scared off the miners, they start by grabbing minecarts full of ore, each stone golem holds 50 iron. As you arrive your multi arm golems head in, grabbing 75 iron for both of them, while the scarecrows cannot grab much, they still are strong enough to carry 10 iron.All the looters are loaded up, and the assault team is set for a clean escape. Do you leave? or do you set the assault team to cut off the fire brigade?
>>42408488We've got what we want and a perfect exit. No point staying since we're full up.Let's go home and let'em mourn their dead "Heroes" and all that weepy soppy drivel.At least they have something to fertilize the fields with now.

>>42409519Why don't we just make them spiked, as long as we don't place them like an idiot, they shouldn't hinder mobility significantly and they'll get some extra defense.
>>42409561Oh hey the peasantry has arrived.Lovely. Gentlemen we have rabble to drive out!We really need to do some production after this...
>>42409568What if, instead of spikes, we place saw blades along their bodies so that anyone that touches them is cut up. Plus, if the blades are spinning quickly, it will throw any weapon to the side from the force.
>>42409500>>42409488I'm guessing these are the same?Is it a dude in a suit or an actual golem?
>>42409561Assaults on your dungeon are noticed before they arrive, so you can allocate your units to rooms and set up traps and strategies. Currently all of your units can fit in the entry room, which has a sawblade trap on the hallway into the room. You are able to take part in the battle, or hide in the treasure room. If the attackers arrive in the treasure room, you can escape to a secret passage with a small amount of money to rebuild, as well as some worklings surviving.Once the attackers arrive at your base, which as a reminder looks like >>42406760you will roll for combat as normal.How do you position your troops?
take a few (2 or 3) worklings and stone golems and send them to 'mine' (make noise) at a nearby cave. Wait for the peasants to search for the entrance and find the bait. Then flank and smash with the rest.Also, next turn, spiky pitfall trap entrance.
>thinly veiled HoMM quest thread
>>42409649No, not really, also dude in a suit.
>>42409665Theres no point in spreading them out. If they want to come in by all means let's invite them to a party. We'll use their guts for party streamers.Much as I'd love a layered defense we don't have enough for it right now so wait behind the entry trap. See how many still have a stomach for it and slaughter them all afterwards. Not much strategy here beyond a slugfest.Also vote on leading personally.
>>42409665Our new war golem will be at the very front, to greet our visitors after the trap. All of the saw golems are to form a V, centered around the entrance. As they swarm in, close the V and grind them to paste.
>>42409785>>42409727So, I take it as a "If they want it, let them come" scenario. Let's write.As the guardsmen close in, you get an accurate count on them. 34 men strong, 10 armed with mattocks, 10 with halberds, 14 with swords and shields.The men are scared at first to charge in, but they all realize what is at stake as they brace themselves and charge straight into the darkness. They are immediately caught off guard by a sawblade, at waist height, catching the front line of 5 halberdiers, and slicing them cleanly in two. The charge continues and breaks down the door to the room, to be greeted by you and your war golem, with friends.3 people roll 1d20 for combat.

>>42409488something like this?
>>42410043When we get the time, we should make some monkey-esce wood golems that have hands and saw blades. Make them able to run faster than humans, swing through trees in forests, and cut the shit out of anyone that tries to escape
Before I forget, when we are done here lets research boulder looking stealth/sentry stone golems, that way we can have 2 of them out of the entrance of the lair and other 2 at the end of the first hallway. This golems will be wide enough to block the way and will be mounted with sawblades, so when called to quell the enemy numbers they just creep on them from both sides and saw them until one of them dies. By then massive damage should have been archived. The other pair are backups.
>>42410114Nicely done dude
>>42410007I'm taking the first roll>>42410008>>42410033(32/60) combat starts, and these soldiers simply were not prepared. The war golem alone is a whirling god of death, each slash sprays blood upon the faces of their allies. Stone golems were not as lucky, two stone golems fall, as well as one multi arm golem. The scarecrows do their creepy thing, hoisting up soldiers as they team up to pull them apart. Halberdiers are able to take down one scarecrow. You easily dispatch mattock soldiers, as they are equipped to fight golems, not men.unit countYou:1 war golem2 stone golems4 multi arm golems4 scarecrows.Them:2 halberdiers4 mattock men9 sword and shield menof those lost, 13 men died, 6 fled.3 people roll 1d20

>>42410159I'd like a giant spinning mine flail that lowers from the ceiling. Have the chains set to the right length, and you can fill the chamber with liquid adventurer.
Much as I love the brainstorming we should probably focus on our army a good bit first. We got plenty of minions to pick from.Oh and we're kinda slowly being bleed dry of the minion supply. What kind of future overlord has no minions?!
>>42410196>>42410208>>42410235(37/60) You make the final push, slaughtering the last of these pitiful men. One man, in his death throes, swings his halberd high and mighty, cleanly decapitating a scarecrow, before collapsing completely. The battle is won, and you have now got a helluva lot of charnel and people gunk to clean up.+20 iron (weapons and armor)+40 stone (dead golems)+40 wood (dead scarecrows)+65 hay (dead scarecrows)The thread has stopped bumping, and I gotta go to work tomorrow, so I think it's about time to call it a night. Just gotta figure out how to use suptg to archive it and I'll be golden.
>>42410342Good first session boss. I'm digging this one. I still want to see the blood moon harvest though.Simple, easy to get into and satisfying when the the bodies hit the floor.
>>42410307While I agree it's important to replace our losses, quality is better than quantity. I'd rather we build five iron war golems than ten basic stone ones. As shown by this battle, the war golems are close to invincible and death incarnate. As we go, we should build up our forces of iron(and later, steel) golems, while phasing out the stone ones. We can use the stone golems as a first line of defense, but ultimately, iron is a better choice.
Golems have high def, but they do not regenerate, they require materials to be repaired and we cannot creat stuff outta nothing so we have 3 good options:>rangedsince the golems seem to be able to produce mana them selfs, which is what powers them (assuming) why not make so they cast magic missile?>regenuse their mana/energy to regen/reasemble, so they won't need material to be fixed (maybe chance to reasemble(ressurect) if killed?)>alchemylets just learn how to make stuff outta thin air, like a true whizzard. OP gave that option, right?also, we still down for Operation taking fields hostage?
>>42410401http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Dungeon%20KingFor future reference, and thanks for the words.>>42410424Remember, you get a lot of stone, and through mining your base with worklings, you can get a lot of stone and iron. So at some point you'll need to find a use for stone, whether its more golems or a castle. But the sheer swarms of stone golems you could make are intimidating, and great for hauling loot.And with that, I'm off.
>>42410424They all got a purpose. I'll agree the war golems are powerful but we still need hauler bitches on raids. Stone golems are fairly tough and carry a hefty load, no point in not having them around for general work in that regard and as emergency fodder.I'm fairly sure next session needs to be a building session, we've gotten a grab bag of toys to make. Let's open the toybox and have some fun. And as a bonus make our selves a bitch'n sword of magic and armor to match if we can afford it.
>>42410494any kind of auto repair function would demand materials to repair them.God that'd make the iron war golems terrifying. They could literally grab weapons off fallen soldiers and recover mid combat. Stone golems would have it even better alongside scarecrows and other more mundane minions.As for alchemy yes we got that. Basically the more rare the material the more gold we need to transmute to get it. Cheap stuff's at a 1 to 5 ratio but stuff like iron would cost a bit.Jesus catpcha thats the 10th fucking time you made me click oranges I get it you want OJ now quit it!
>>42410535I want to build an 8 legged horse-golem for the stuff-carry-ngs, it just needs to be big and hollow, to be fast. it would ve close to defenceless, but It could help start the raids by acting as an APC.
in the future, put quest somewhere so we who don't want to see this kind of thread can filter it
>>42410655>>42410496Why not a gravel golem, or a sand golem? Those could be fun.
>>42410603>any kind of auto repair function would demand materials to repair them.how? they would just reasemble, the iro/stone could turn to dust they would just return to his body, no need for new material eventually we gain dust golems since we can't creat stuff out of nothing, but we have 1:5 ratio to some stuff, lets hope we can transmutate stuff other than gold, thus having infinite everything. If dm doesn't allow possibility of infinite everything i will call him rail roading faggot, it's magic ffs.you know you can change to the old captch in the setting right?>>42410726now that i think of, what's the difference from a sand golem to a sand elemental?
>>42410759That'd probably be ruled out on grounds of being too hilariously OverPowered. I mean jesus I'd let you get a healing function but not one for free like that. If I was running things anyway something that powerful is entirely Steely's discretion.Also theres kinda how the forces of "good" would get into the habit of beating things to rubble instead of component parts. God knows I would if I fought killer magic robots who pull themselves together again like a jigsaw puzzle from hell.
>>42410801I really like your commentary anon. If i was the DM i would balance it by making the enemies stronger but ho well, i am not.I say next turn we should research regen, make healing room and create scavange golems.Scavange Golems are manlet sized, they hollw and can carry lots of stuff, they are fast, they will roam arround collecting spare resorces such as twigs and pebbles and unload them in the healing room, i there the injured golems will use the twigs and pebbles to regen.we could make make >>42410655 to carry suck resorces to battle.i assume those strategies would require great deal of intelligence, so lets spend a turn to improve our golemancy. hopefully we can create smarter golems for free.
>>42410893Well, we have some spare parts for flesh golems available right there...We could give our scarecrows some brains
>>42410893You seem to really want to get everything for nothing.Also you're a trip-fag.I dislike you greatly.Have a pleasant night.
>>42411017 flesh golems when
>>42411086The more OP we get the more option we will have, the stronger the enemies dm will throw at us, and greater the challenge and therefore the fun.i like how you where respectful and I like that you're annoyed by me, have a pleasant night you too anon.
Just a thought, but might it make sense to have one suggestion per person replying? Still take three overall, but do something like top three suggestions, or first suggestions to get three votes each. Maybe with a 1d20 rolled for each post, and result out of 60 instead of 20.Now that I've typed it out, I'm not as convinced, but I'll post it anyway just in case someone likes the idea or wants to use something similar.
>>42411169Agreed, but If we give suggestions while rolling everyone will just vote the higher roll, disregarding the ideas, it will turn into a game of luck rather than strategy.
About:Regenerationlets make a Blu Gold Golem, whose special ability will be consuming the gold of its own body to transmute more mass in Iron to repair itself, eventually getting less and less blue and more silvery until its only an Iron golem. But this would be after tons of punishment.
>>42411017>>42411107Sooner than you think
>>42411286Exelente idea anon, we should make all war golems like that. someone save this for next thread.Brain golems >>42411296 could lead squads, take care of defense, oversee the miners and stuff, we should gice them ranged weapons.Come to think, we still need miners. Anyway what do you guys think of the scavanger and >>42410655 golem?
