I slapped the word quest in the title so filterfags wouldn't whine in the thread anymore.>Archive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Dungeon%20KingI've decided to make a minor change in the way research and actions work, Research is automatic, it does not take an action, so there will always be one subject of research per turn. In concordance with this, you only have 2 actions per turn. The rationale behind this is that in the last thread, research would often take up multiple slots per turn and rush a bit too quickly, this way it balances out and shouldn’t hinder the pace of the game, since most of the time research took up one slot anyway. In addition, to balance out the way rolls work, ideas that reach 3 votes (and rolls) first get chosen, the best of the 3 rolls is used. Don't feel obligated to submit two actions, if you only have one idea and people will roll for them. This stops vote spamming so we don’t get 20s on everything because everyone voted for it.The change (hopefully) won't make any noticeable difference, and is there simply to prevent samefagging and knocking the game off balance. Without further ado, let's be an evil warlord.Last time we became a golem warlord, looted the village of Scumwalk, and fended off an attack from angry guardsmen. We created a war golem, and are going to scarecrow the countryside at some point.Materials:>422 gold>275 stone>350 iron>61 wood>145 hayUnits:>1 war golem (60 iron, 5 gold)>2 stone golems (30 stone)>4 multi arm golems (40 stone)>5 sawblade golems (30 stone, 10 iron)>4 scarecrows.

However, you can send them to deforest some area in the highlands, with a chance of being discovered by patrols. Who the patrol is owned by is up to discussion, and if they aren't hostile they may not attack the worklings.(20/20) send worklings to gather resources - you order the worklings to dig deep into the earth, in order to gather iron for creating their stronger bretheren. Soon after they begin, they discover an iron ore vein! +120 iron, +30 stone(17/20) make golems (assorted) - you manage to stitch back together the decapitated scarecrow, costing much less wood than first expected, and build another one from scratch. You are unable to afford more than two scarecrows. You set to work on iron golems with tails, and are able to overall use slightly less iron when it comes to the tails. with stone golems, you weren't too concerned and they cost the same. -50 wood, -60 hay, -270 stone, -160 iron, -20 gold +2 scarecrow, +9 stone golems, +5 iron golems(20/20) research agile golems - you figure out how to create a golem much quicker than average. They cost half as much, but are also much weaker with hauling goods. They are only slightly less effective in combat due to decreased strength, but the agility makes up for most of the loss.
How do these villages work? Are they all independent, can they ask other villages/castles for help, do they have local lords ect
>>42420364The villages generally follow the local lord or king, and may appeal to him for help. Of course, they could just be ignored.It should also be mentioned that you can send units to scout locations and get maps of the area beforehand. Scarecrows are probably gonna be good for this. Scouting has a chance of being discovered though, and the unit will possibly die, and you may gain notoriety. you can send out multiple scouts per turn.Materials:>402 gold>35 stone>310 iron>11 wood>85 hayUnits:>1 war golem (60 iron, 5 gold)>11 stone golems (30 stone)>4 multi arm golems (40 stone)>5 sawblade golems (30 stone, 10 iron)>5 scarecrows.

You work out an injection system for the tail, much like that of a scorpion. the only problem is that you don't have the resources to make poison, and gold cant be transmuted into a material you are not familiar with. You can add poison to units, but for now you need a mystery material to create the poison.(14/20) demand loyalty of scumwalk - You gather your forces, for it is time to make a demand. You approach the village, seeing that the signal flare is already up. Most of the garrison waits outside the newly erected palisades, an older man with grey sideburns and a strong jaw waits on a horse in front of the men.

>>42422624Boy you're playing about in a thread where the entire point is to be an evil overlord in the making.Hell first thread we were setting up to try and quietly plant scarecrow golems in village farm fields and basically get ready for a blood harvest. Then we got a tad bored and went raiding and had wild success at it. After that was killing a rabble of wannabe heroes messily.I still want to mess with some heads using scarecrows.
>>42422672I'm being silly. i was all for backing the Scarecrows in the last thread.Speaking of that, we need to research those Magic Sigils/Runes that got mentioned last thread. So we can make those explosive scarecrows.Or just explosive golems in general.

>>42422584>>42422591>>42422597(34/60) You draw your sword and approach the commander. You speak."Do you think you are special? Something other than a stepping stone to be forgotten about by greater men? Today you die.""Hmph. I accept your duel." He says, drawing his own sword.This is the first hero unit you're encountering. He may not be named and have special gear, bu the guard captain is a much stronger fighter than any of his troops. Defeat a hero and their units take a morale penalty. Combat works the same as it always does.You both circle eachother, you are clearly on the offensive as he barely blocks most of your swings, his attacks barely reaching your shield.

With a deft swipe, you send his sword soaring out of his hand, caught in a moment of arrogance you are caught off guard by him ramming his shield into your chest. You regain your balance quickly and stab directly into his shoulder, dropping him to his knees in pain. You bring the tip of the blade to his throat.>Take him prisoner>Execute(no need for rolls for this choice)

>>42423190(20/20) (i know there were already 3 rolls, but this is purely for flavor so QM fiat) The severed head pegs one of his elite guardsmen in the face, causing him to freak out and try to wipe the blood off.There are two distinct hills in the area, if you are able to reach the city outskirts you pretty much win. There is a small wooden wall at the outside, but you don't think your golems particularly care. your forces are the red square. you have:>1 war golem >11 stone golems >4 multi arm golems >5 sawblade golems >5 scarecrows. >5 iron tail golemsThe enemy squads are as follows:squad 1: 18 mattock men. (great against stone, average against metalsquad 2: 20 halberdiers (ineffective against stone and metal, but great against wood and hay)squad 3: 25 hammer men (each wield crude hammers and a shield, some seem to have been taken from the local blacksmith. good against stone and metal, weak against wood.)squad 4: 10 elite guardsmen (swordsmen, guards of the former captain, average against all types.)
>>42423384Discuss battle strategy.Also, would people prefer if I made a twitter to tell when a new thread is coming?
>>42423431It would probably help. I'd follow it.
>>42423431Well squad 4 has to die and is cut off from the rest of the force. easy to see how that'll go. Next is taking the high ground.As for force counters we need iron to hit squad 2. squad 1 is reserved for saw blades+war golem. ironically they're the biggest pain in our ass despite the pickax motif.Squad 3 has to be delayed by our scarecrows while the more dangerous groups are hit.Which target to do we personally attend to gents?
>>42423431I'm just a normal anon, but for reference:Scarecrows are wood.War golem and Iron Tail golems are iron.Stone, Multi Arm, and Sawblade are stone.
>>42423431>>42423384Yus, make a Twitter.I think we should spread our forces as follows:>1 War Golem + 1 Stone Golem + 3 Scarecrows + 2 Multi-Arm Golems + Us VS SQUAD #3>10 Stone Golems + 2 Multi-Armed Golems VS SQUAD #2>5 Irontail Golems + 5 Sawblade Golems + 2 Scarecrows VS SQUAD #1Or do any other anons think we should take a different approach?
Something like this I think(different troop comp may be better). If the scarecrows can make it to the barricade and we can kill enough guards they should be willing to surrender.The halberdiers should be easy to kill, so it's a matter of fighting 1 and 3 until the enemy loses the will to fight. I'm not too confident about our ability to defeat 18 mattocks and 25 hammers in a straight fight.
>>42423549I.. Okay I can dig it that'll work out fine enough as an opening play the main point is the hammer men have to die fast.Not bad anon. Main thing is we'll have to be a whirlwind and support whichever squads getting its shit kicked in the worst if that happens.
>>42423431Squad 1: 5 irontailsSquad 2: 5 stonersSquad 3: 5 scarecrowsSquad 4: 1 wargolem, 4 multiarms, 6 stoners, 5 sawblades and >meThen Squad 4 turns to flank each of the others after the elites are gone. Prioritizing 1, then 3, then 2.
>>42423591Mainly depends on how much force the warlord himself puts in.It might be more sensible to try and hit the city limits which he counts as a win condition since we'll have the townsfolk hostage. At that point they either surrender or get to watch their loved ones go squish, splat, and tear.
>>42423549OH SHIT I FORGOT ABOUT THE FOURTH SQUADWhy am i posting at 2 am again?I guess i'll leave the strategizing to other anonsi'll stay for the dice rolls tho
>>42423632Yeah, that's the goal of the scarecrow force. They're supposed to be faster, so having our main forces occupy the guards while they make it to the city seems like the fastest and safest way to win this.
>>42423616I should note (this post was also me) that the golems against squads 1-3 are mostly there to delay and more or less keep them in place. I'd expect we lose most or all of them depending on die rolls, but with the core squad up against 4, I think we stand a pretty decent chance.Also, I'd be down for >>42423591 with my troop comp (or one other anons think is better).
>>42423431@DungeonKingQMHere's the twitter.It looks like we're dealing with variations on the same strategy, what I've picked out is that it's 3 squads, one for each hill and one barreling down the center, you in the center one. It looks like the squad composition is the issue.Am I right in guessing that?

Your golems manage to fight back, but another round like this would be catastrophic. -1 sawblade golem, -4 stone golems. -8 halberdiers, -2 mattock men.(22/60) The only advantage you have here is that equal numbers versus golems are something to fear. the two multi arm golems flanking are effective, but not tide-turning. the battle is a stalemate with neither side gaining an upper hand. -2 stone golems, -1 iron tail golem. -4 elite guardsmen.(20/60) 10 hammer men split off from the crowd to swing around and help squad 4, which leads to a stalemate when blue squad charges down the hill.

However, 10 hammer men joined in the fray, stacking on the flanking that the two golems were doing. All flanks have effectively dissolved in this slaughter and your golems are more accustomed to fighting in such a style than these guardsmen are. -1 multi arm golem, -1 stone golem. -3 elite guardsmen, -3 hammer men(slain) -2 hammer men (deserted)(22/60) Another poor round of battle, the scarecrows again took no casualties, but the remaining multi arm golem fell to the hammer men. However, the remaining men may have trouble, as their weapons are almost completely ineffective against the scarecrows.

So you set to research, and through perusing through books you find out what you need. First of all, you need a gem for the phylactery. Any kind will do, but more valuable ones tend to have stronger magical capabilities. Second, you're going to need a necromancer to extract a few secrets from. Then you build your vessel, which would be the easy part.(20/20) You decide that your golems need more power, fists simply are too weak to use in battle anymore. So you sit down and carve out 5 stone weapons, they look like obelisks at the moment as a sword form isn't too stable when it comes to stone. -200 stone, +5 obelisk clubs(14/20) You replenish your army with some of your iron tail golems, and plan to replace some of your multi arm golems once you regain some stone. Your new go to shock troop is the iron golem now. -420 iron, -60 gold, +12 iron tail golems.EVENT: You hear some shouting outside, when you leave the dungeon to investigate, you see that one of your scarecrows has caught a blonde haired boy, no older than 16. His eyes light up when he sees you."So the rumors are true!""Hm?""The Black king of Golems, who took the village, you are hiding out here."You wonder what to do with the boy, before you can say anything, he breaks the silence."Teach me! I want to become your apprentice."On one hand, he could prove valuable, creating golems on his own once you teach him, but he may be more trouble than he's worth.What do you do with him?>Take him in>Kill him>Write in
>>42425910>Take him in
>>42425910>Take him inCaveat: don't let him know about your phylactery plans. Having an apprentice could be good, but we don't want to show anything more than we have to.
>>42425910>Write inGive him 3 tests. One on knowledge, strength of will and willingness to kill others.
>>42426032Oh, I like this. Let's do this.>also secretphylactery.png
>>42425941>>42425955>>42426032>>42426120You decide that if he is worth teaching, you will show him your ways. You take him on a walk through your base. If he can walk through the first room, there's no point in keeping him with you. The second you enter the room, you are met with the slaughter from the previous attack, as well as several scarecrow waiting as sentries, and the war golem. Blood streaks are the least of his worries, as skeletons, still with flesh hanging off of them, adorn the floor and corners of the room, some even pinned to the wall with their own weapons. He gulps, but steels himself through the horror. He has enough willpower.You hand him an old book, useless to you as it talks about the nature of iron in forging, something you know by heart."Read.""Now?" You don't respond. He realizes why he needs to know this, and opens the book. He even seems to have basic literacy, a bonus in a world as illiterate as this.>Now, what to do for the test of willingness to take life. . ?
>>42426353Give him a sword, tell him to kill us.
>>42426353We just took the village, and I think it would go a long way if we made sure to take care of the villagers, given our statement to them before the attack. As such, I think it would be wise to wait until we have another person show up before we perform the test of willingness to take life.I'm all for killing things, but I'm not super interested in going full-bore chaotic evil.
>>42426353Ask him which village he came from and if there is anyone specific he would like to bring to our cave. Get him to kill that person.
>>42426430What better way to test him? If he's willing to seriously try to kill us, he's worth teaching. If he can't do that, he'd probably die trying to stop a puppy from drowning.
>>42426438I'm gonna reiterate - we can continue testing him later. Let him learn about non-magical stuff for now, and when we get the chance, have him kill something. Something helpless and pretty much innocent of everything other than catching our attention, preferably. (I am the anon from the quoted post again)
>>42426353You decide to wait until later for the last test, giving him mundane tasks and objectives. for now, you should get back to work.Since you conquered a village, it's time to explain how you can expand to other areas of the map. Locations on the map with the four pointed star next to them are integral locations, which means that once all in a region are conquered, they unlock all adjacent regions. However, you are still too weak to make an assault on any of these.What do you do?>Choose research>Loot>Build golems>Enhance dungeon>Send worklings to gather resources

>>42427159>researchModular golem parts? I don't know if that's actually a thing for us or if it would benefit us in any way, but I like the idea of having premade parts to put golems together a little quicker than from scratch. Like having different frames, limbs, heads, power cores, etc.

The idea seemed ridiculous at first, but after developing agile golems, and with magic, you believe that you could send your golems into the air.

In a system involving rails and magic, you manage to make a sawblade (and rock) launcher. It will act as a new limb, and can be applied for +5 material to a golem, replacing a single limb, or +10 and add a whole new limb to a golem.(19/20) teach apprentice - You walk the boy through the basics of creating a golem, Teach him about how the core of the golem is where the magic spawns from, and flows through their body much like blood flows through ours. If broken, they will bleed out magic. The untrained cannot see it, but mages would see torrents of this 'magic blood' if a golem were to loose its limb. There are several parts of the ritual to complete, but the boy gets it down pat. He succeeds on creating a workling on his first try-10 stone+1 worklingWhen you check in on him the next day, you find that he's been practicing. -40 stone+4 worklings(9/20) send worklings mining - they dig.

>>42428009>>42428024>>42428389(14/20) you send a scarecrow to scout Dvor, and learn of the quarry town. A manor at the top of the cliffs looks down on the land below. The workers seem to dwell next to the quarry and have made a church out of desperation, and living in squalor.Manors are another special building type, like churches. Manors hold immense wealth, but also have a large amount of private guards, and if you loot them, you may gain the ire of a very wealthy family.(17/20) upgrade golems - you take five iron tail golems, you replace the tails with launchers, providing them with the use of their hands. -20 iron-5 iron tail golems+5 scorpion golemsCreating the ammunition for the golems also costs materials, they are created with ammunition, but it will cost 5 materials to refill.(13/20) You study the process of making steel, how to refine pig iron into the powerful metal. Through reading books, and interrogating a very skilled, and very scared blacksmith, you manage to convert iron into steel.-10 iron, - 5 gold, +10 steelTo create steel, you spend iron and half the amount in gold, and receive steel.cont. with inventory, then wrap up and archive thread.
