Last Time, on Feral Necromancer Quest: You had a timeskip of ten years. After achieving immortality and uniting the tribes into an Alliance, you were keeping yourself busy with the day-to-day management of a society. You spent an afternoon with your family, playing hide and seek with your daughter, and talking to Bathory. You told your daughter, in great detail (minus the worst of the gore) of the events that led up to her birth. You spoke and meditated with Lathrien, learning about how he has advanced in the years gone by, and learning that he has been mastering the art of meditation. Finally, you made some decisions about altering the political structure of the Alliance, when your scouts returned and informed you of three different crises that you had to respond to. You chose to go to the Southern Sea, to see who was crossing it. You sent Lathrien with a squad of his choosing to an abandoned city far to the East. You sent Melandie with your best scouts West, to investigate what the followers of Pern have been doing since their attack on your land. And that is where the thirty third installment of Feral Necromancer Quest was concluded. The Cast: Vlad Tepish: You, a necromancer and shaman of great skill and a part time immortal dragon. Your constant and insistent attempts at diplomacy with the neighboring tribes has made you a leading member of the council of Elders of the Alliance. Bathory: Your lover and companion, brought back to life into an alchemical body. She is the mother of your child. A skilled diplomat in her own right she brings stability and counsel to your company.Mihnea: Your baby daughter. She does not cry much. Lathrien: Your apprentice and the first vampire, he is getting better at controlling his new powers, which are substantial. The first to gain immortality among your party, he is stronger, faster and more charming than ever before.
Melandie: A huntress, a berserker, an elf and one of your best scouts. She is quick to anger and her rage is terrible, but she has learned to control her emotions better recently. The runeblade she wields still impacts her emotions, but it is unlikely to break her mind or kill her any longer.Korg: Your orcish blackguard, he is bound to your will. He wields a great hammer and cares for few things more than to use it in battle. A creature of simple pleasures and sins he is a destructive force on the battlefield and a cunning creature in planning.Halivean: Known to you as Hal, he is your desert elf blackguard. Fanatically loyal to you and with some basic skill in necromancy and tactics he is a vital lieutenant to your forces. His agility is exceptional and his skill with a blade and bow is significant, but where he shines is leading undead into battle.Karist: Dwarven runesmith and elder.Spot: Gnoll rogue and boss.Vlad the Kobold: Kobold leader.Amythrien: Elven craftsman and elder.Sheila: Human elder from your village.Housekeeping: The new advancement rules and perks: http://pastebin.com/WwpGdjMJThe civilization rules (subject to change): http://pastebin.com/vBgFKj7wCharacter sheets, including the Civilization sheet for the Alliance: http://pastebin.com/vBRyBWfKFinally, some action. You had forgotten how much you had missed the discovery of new people, and the danger they represent. It is a rush to be important, to be the one standing between three, nearly four hundred people and certain destruction. You are going to meet your new neighbours. If they are good people, you might negotiate trade, set up diplomatic channels. If not, you will wipe them out. It is a fairly long trek South, but you should leave soon. >Take as much of your military force as you can. Your undead, and any armed civilians that Melandie and Lathrien do not bring along. Show the newcomers your strength. (cont.)
>>44132056>Take your undead only. That is all the force you've ever needed, and it will show the newcomers who they are dealing with. >Take only mortal troops. Your necromancy has been a point of contention in diplomacy before. >Take only your Blackguard and a selection of advisors. >Take Bathory, she is a capable diplomat. >Take Mihnea, she needs to learn more about your work and the world >Take one or more of the Alliance elders (who?)>Take along someone else.

>>44132307huh, I assumed I'd forgotten to update the pastebin as usual. Fix'd.Your true form allows you for a certain amount of flexibility in how you approach the ships, and you are quite certain that it will be all the demonstration of power that you will need. You will also move much faster in flight than on foot, and so you decide to take only as many people with you as you can carry. You direct Lathrien and Melandie to build their own squads, and as expected Melandie leaves with a mix of kobold and elven scouts, while Lathrien takes every magic user of any skill with him. You go to Bathory's room. 'Bathory, Mihnea, we are going on a bit of a trip,' You say'Vlad, what is wrong?' Bathory says'Oh, nothing, there are some newcomers sailing across the Southern Sea. I thought we should go meet them,' 'And you want to take our daughter with us on such a dangerous excursion why?' 'It'll go fine, I'm certain. She does need to see the world,' 'I am almost grown up! I wanna go!' Mihnea says 'Very well, Vlad, but you better be ready to murder anyone that touches her,' 'Always, love,' You get to the courtyard, and call your blackguard to you. 'Uncle Korg!' Mihnea shouts and hugs the hulking orc. The orc never seems to be quite certain as to what is expected of him in such a situation, but he pats the girl on the head and gives her a big toothy smile. 'We will be flying,' you say, and transform into your true form, 'Bathory, Mihnea, get on my back. You two, just hold on tight until we land.' 'I knew it wasn't a meta- meta-four! I knew dad's a real dragon!' You lift off. You had been somewhat worried about your passengers falling off, but it seems the fear was unfounded. You can keep very level when you try to. You wouldn't want to go into battle like this, but you can keep this up just fine. Your daughter lets out a sound somewhere between a scream and a shout of excitement. (cont.)

'I am going to leave you four a few miles off the coast,' you say. 'That is wise. We are somewhat less immune to dying than you love, just in case,' Bathory says. 'Dad! Dad! I cannot see the house anymore!' Mihnea says. 'We are flying quite fast,' 'You talk funny when you're a dragon!' 'Bigger throat. So, do you still think magic is just a story from history?' 'But it's dad doing it. Dad's not an elven prince OR a wicked warlock!' 'So, what do you think magic is?' 'Well. Um. It's like the stories?' 'But even in these stories, dragons are rare, as is my magic!' 'Yes, but it's dad magic. It's not like the stories,' Ah, circular logic. The trait of young children and zealots. 'I suppose I cannot argue with that,' 'Boss, will there be fightin'?' Korg says. 'I certainly hope not!' Bathory says. 'We are hoping to avoid it. We will see.' You say. 'Oh. Okay boss.' The trek that took you a week on foot will take less than a day this time around. It is twilight when you reach a reasonable landing site. >Camp for the night, approach whoever it is in the morning. >Turn into a bat or some other nocturnal creature to scout without being seen. >Drop your folks off and go meet the newcomers in dragon form. >Just walk there in human form. Let them think you a hermit or a lone wanderer before you deal with them as a leader.>Other

20! Dragon Intimidation Success! Everybody Shits their Pants!You leave your companions to set up camp and you take flight once more. A day of flight has taken its toll, but you doubt you will be doing much that is physically exerting. As you fly, you see the ships of these newcomers. They are large, though more impressive in length than in width or height, long boats, really. They have square sails, depicting what seem to be tribal markings. Many of them seem somewhat violent in nature, skulls, bones, swords and such, though others depict ram's heads, stylized trees and others. There are some forty ships total, each large enough to hold at least ten men. Three ships have already landed. You land in front of them, let out your best roar, and breathe acid into the air. 'Jormottan!' you hear a low shout. You see that the man shouting is in fact an orc. Indeed, a majority of these sailors seem to be orcs, with a few humans in the mix. After that shout, there is more shouting and two of the three ships are pushed back into the sea, and immediately start heading back where they came from. From the third, an older orc dressed in exotic furs and with a golden crown on his head leaps off. He approaches you, looks into your eyes, kneels on one knee and says something in a language that seems familiar, but not quite something that you know well. >Roar and breathe acid.

21! Great Success!It's... Elven, you suppose, more or less. It is Elven, but spoken completely phonetically, as if by someone that has only seen it in writing. If your guess is right- and it probably is- what the orc captain is saying is: 'Great Worm, I am Ursnak, leader of Urs-urak raiders. We will bring mighty sacrifices to appease your many hungers. Allow us to stay in this land that is yours by right,' >'Yes, mortal, worship me!' >'Naw, it ain't like that, I only did the dragon thing to show what I am capable of.' >'Leave now and never come back.' >Other

>>44133391Hah. To think I'd not have caught it. Going with plausible deniability, as this is pretty close anyways. 'Why have you come?' 'We move village to village, we take what is ours in the name of the old spirits, but the villages on the old continent are becoming towns, and too well defended to safely raid. Me and my men decided to see if there is anything to take up here,' 'I see. Now, here's the thing. I've been messing with you. I am not your great worm. I took its form to show you my power. And I am the leader of one of the greatest tribes here. You will not be stealing anything from me,' 'O-of course,' Ursnak says, but he stands up, looking embarrassed by all the bowing and kneeling he'd done before you, 'Still, you must have enemies, any good Thane does. Can we raid them?' More and more ships are landing. By now, you have an audience of thirty disembarked raiders.>If you want to stay, settle, work the land, fish, trade with us. There will be no raiding on these shores. >Sure, there are some assholes to the West that I wouldn't mind getting raided. >Take whatever you want, just don't take it from me. >Leave. Now. >Other.

'There is one group. Far to the West. I do not think they have many villages on the sea-shore, but then neither do any other people here. If you are willing to raid in-land, you can raid them,' 'Well, that is something. It is a long way and we do not have much in the way of supplies, but if there are enemies to raid, we will try or die.' 'Think about this. The shores here are free. You can settle here. Grow, fish, build. You do not need to raid to live here.' Roll Diplomacy 1d20+6 DC 20

25! Success!'Grow things, catch wild game, make our living,' the orc captain says, he looks ponderous for a moment, 'Yes. That is something we can do.' Another orc, this one ancient, grey-haired and hunched speaks up: 'You forget your place, warchief. Our people do not build. Our people do not plant. We do not catch fish in nets. We are killers and raiders.' 'No, spirit-speaker, you forget yours. I am in command here. My word is the law,' Ursnak says. 'Of course, Ursnak. The spirits will spit on us, but it is your right to make us do this thing,' The remaining raiders look dour and you feel that if not for the need to bring up every new arriving ship on what has happened here, some opposition might arise, violent or otherwise. 'Enough of this. I am Vlad Tepish, and I rule all the lands north of here. You will find that being my ally will be a greatly rewarding life. Now, me, my party is hungry, tired and thirsty. I will bring them out, I will bring food and drink, and we will seal this alliance in drinking and eating together,' 'That I can get behind!' A human raider shouts. You notice that most of them look hungry, and almost all of them are showing the first signs of scurvy. You know which plants here will help with the illness, and you had the foresight to gather them along with grabbing a few deer while in flight. >Bring your family and your blackguard, eat and drink with the raiders. >Bring your blackguard.

You turn back into your human form, to the collected shocked breaths of the raiders. Then you walk off into the forest, and return an hour later with food enough for twenty people, and fruit rich in the nutrients needed to battle scurvy. 'Uncle Korg! Is this your old tribe?' 'No, Mihnea, these are new people. They look big. Maybe I could fight one,' 'Korg!' Bathory says. 'I mean friendly like! Like sparring!' Korg says. 'The only difference between you going all out and sparring is that I am too good to get killed by the likes of you,' Hal says. 'I'll be gentle,' Korg says. 'Now, children, please. This is an important diplomatic meeting. Let us try to be a little civil,' you say. Before the feast begins in earnest, you speak to the spirit-speaker of the raiders. The old orc looks at you with unabashed hatred. 'I am a powerful shaman. I could speak to the spirits, see if they truly would be angered by your actions,' 'Shaman. Pah. Spirits of dirt and puddles. I speak of the great spirits. The gods of our homeland.' 'Nonetheless. It couldn't hurt to check.' 'Eeeh. Do as you will. Could not hurt, you are right.' The old orc has entirely too many scars. Either he has been in more battles than your entire undead forces combined, or there is some ritual scarring involved in his rituals. In which case, he has still done more rituals than you have in your lifetime. He is very likely dangerous. Probably not as dangerous as you are, but you make sure to keep an eye on him during the nights celebrations. Roll 1d20+3 feast check.

17! Solid Soiree, Son!It quickly becomes clear that the raiders use straight barrels of mead for their ballast. In fact, there is more mead than there could conceivably be drunk by the entire fleet. And they are extremely thankful for all of the party supplies you are providing. Your lieutenants set off to join the common men to party hard, and even though they cannot easily get drunk in their current forms, very soon you hear laughter and shouting from where they had gone. You stay with the leader and some of the more highly ranking raiders. There is a human captain of an all-human ship, filthy and by all accounts more brutal than the orcs. There is a young orc, somehow related to the elder, that seems a little too eager to prove him to you, the chieftain and the world. There is Ursnak, who you find to be a fairly cheerful orc, if spiritual in some respects. You learn that he was very hesitant in accepting your offer of settlement, and only accepted because he believed that the old spirits have not followed them to these shores. 'Do you kill people?' Mihnea says. 'Yes! We show up at their shores, kill all who oppose us, and take what is left behind!' 'That's mean. You shouldn't do that,' 'It is how it has always been done.' 'Well MY dad never does ANYTHING the way it's always been done, and he's a dragon!' 'I see.' 'Now, Mihnea, there is place in the world for many traditions. Perhaps, if the people they kill were wiser and better prepared, these raiders would starve or be killed in battle. It is a hard way to live, but it has its reason.' Bathory says. 'I still think it's mean! And none of them are dragons,' 'No child, none of us are dragons. Maybe your dad has the right of things after all.' Much of the conversation is lighter than that. Some of the conversation is heavier yet. You stay off drink as much as you can, making sure to keep a close eye on Mihnea. (cont.)

>>44134361>not even dragons>what plebs
>>44134361It is midnight when Mihnea and Bathory retire to sleep. It is five minutes after that that you have to break up a 'sparring' fistfight between Korg, Hal and four of the raiders when it starts getting a little too bloody. You drink a little more, but you need truly prodigal amounts of alcohol to get drunk these days, and so you keep your mind clear until you decide to retire. You meditate, rather than sleep, hoping to stay as aware as possible, and to waste as little time as you can. In the morning you hear shouting, 'Kargor, Vorg, Krish and Morlog are gone!' 'What do you mean gone?' 'Not fucking here, what do you think!' The old, raspy voice of the spirit-speaker speaks up. 'I said it would come to pass. The spirits are angry with us.' 'But we have not grown anything yet!' 'They know! They know!' >Investigate the scene of the disappearance >Leave.

The orc elder joins in the discussion: 'Speaker, you know full well that the spirits care not for words, only for actions. Even if they were mad for our choices, they would not punish us before we'd acted.' 'Do not teach me about spirits, runt!'You hear a thump. A punch, you are quite certain. 'I am your fucking warchief. You will listen to me. I have had near enough of your insolence!' 'You best take care before you make an enemy of me. I have no enemies, and my own hand and knife made sure of that.' 'Uh, leaders, please, we still need to find our missing.' 'Truly! Do you know who saw them last?' 'Well I suppose I did. We were all pretty drunk, but they were still around and drinking before I blacked out,' You stand up and walk towards the commotion. The spirit-speaker leaves without acknowledging you, but the rest of them greet you cordially. 'So, Vlad Tepish, do you know of any creature that could do this in your lands?' 'There are many that could steal away the careless. I shall need to investigate more closely.' First, you speak to the witnesses. You learn little, but that the missing orcs were also all responsible for bringing the firewood for the great pyres that were burnt in celebration. They were all young, and not considered the greatest minds, even among orcs. They were supposed to go get more wood, but no one remembers if they had done so or not. Investigating the scene you do find tracks of four or so orcs leading to the edge of the forest. You could just about follow them, though you are not the greatest tracker.

Vlad don't fail no Shamanism rolls. Great Success on both. You have been paying close attention to how your erstwhile apprentice, Lathrien speaks to spirits. He does not enter a trance, not in a traditional way, he can be all but fully aware and still see in the realm of spirit. You figure it is time to give that a shot. If it was somewhere else, you might not have been able to do it without the full and proper ritual, but here the spirits are very vivid, vital. Suspiciously so, in fact. The spirits of the trees and the plants are particularly well developed, almost suspiciously so. No sooner have you thought it, than you notice that there are some very strange spirits among the usual tree spirits. These seem... more complex, advanced, almost like the spirits of sentient creatures. No, not almost, exactly like. There is no more difference between some of these tree spirits and human spirits, than there is between the spirits of an elf and an orc. You are walking open eyed, and you notice that all of these spirits, all of these creatures that seemed so much like trees to you at first are hiding and moving away from you, deeper and deeper into the forest. >Follow the nature spirits >Go back to camp, update your party >Go back to camp, take your party with you >Tell the orcs about these spirits, then leave >Burn the forest down>Other

Next time Pern sends his shitty followers after us we should take the survivors as slaves.
Your family needs your blackguard for protection, and you are far from defenseless. Furthermore, you are really curious about what the hell is going on there. You follow the spirits at a safe distance. The forest grows more and more thick. Some half an hour later you start seeing beasts, huge and usually aggressive- boars, bears, wolves- and their dire forms at that, but these only seem interested in you, not antagonistic. Still seeing clearly into the spirit realm you see that their baser natures are being suppressed by relatively powerful magic. It is half an hour more, before you reach the clearing. You see three orcs there, surrounded by a dozen plant-like, yet beautiful and extremely nude female forms. They are caressing the orcs and making soothing noises at them, and feeding them nectar and fruit. Nonetheless, you can't help but notice that where there should be four orcs, there are only three, no matter how happy they might seem. Furthermore, you are quite certain that their minds are being at the very least influenced, possibly controlled. Their spirits are certainly suppressed in much the same way that the spirits of the beasts in the dryad forest are. >Charge in, kill the dryads, rescue the orcs. >Step out in the open and speak. >Approach them in the spirit realm. >Other.

>>44135682I imagine he is super salty.
>>44135682huh i forgot about him now im curious
>>44135682The same thing as with like half of the spirits you've bound. They haven't been relevant to much of the story yet, and/or I've just not seen how to involve them yet.'Mmmm, sisters, a great spirit has come to visit us,' 'No, just a dragon,''Does not taste like any dragon I've ever met,' 'And his spirit is so limber, so flexible,' 'Mmmm almost human,' 'No, does not feel like a dragon at all,' 'But it is a dragon,' 'Ladies, please, I am Vlad Tepish and I come on behalf of the orcs.' 'Murderers,' 'Defilers,' 'Fools,' 'Why have you taken them?' 'They would burn our forest,' 'They will,' 'They must be taught to not come near it,' 'They must be killed, or they must... join with us,' 'Yes,' 'Yes,' 'Yes,' Their spirit forms are maddening. Like honey and opium and clear spring water. But your mind has been through much worse. Just talking to them would have subdued a lesser man. You could count the shamans that could speak to them in the astral realm without falling under their influence on the fingers of one hand, if you lost three of them in a horrible accident. But their words are just words. They are not employing true magic against you. >'I cannot allow that. You must leave the orcs alone, or you must die.' >'That makes sense.

You find the chieftain of the orcish raiders. 'Okay, here's what happened,' 'You've found our missing boys?' 'They're dead, or as good as. The local dryads are mad at you for chopping down the trees, so they have decided to attack you on sight,' 'GrrrrARGH! We will burn the entire forest down, our men will not go unavenged,' 'No. There is only war down that path, many of you will die, and for nothing. You could move, the dryads want nothing but to protect their lands,' 'No, Vlad, that is not our way. You kill one of ours, we kill all of yours,' 'Be careful with your pronouns,' 'Yes, sure, either way, it is our way,' 'Truthfully, I could not care less for your way. You leave this place, and you and your people live happily ever after. You stay and you start a war, and I am far from certain of who would win,' 'I am sorry, Vlad, but if knowledge of this spreads after my decision to settle here, I would have a mutiny and after they'd killed me, we would be back to war. This is the only way,' >'Let me talk to your people.'>'If you do this I will just kill you all to spare the other side the casualties. It will be kinder in the long run.' >'Lie to them.

They are territorial, vicious and use magic to control the minds and enslave the wills. You would not die a hero's death fighting them, you would be made slaves, forced to abandon your honor and then be left to rot to fertilize their soil. You might win eventually. You might burn their forest down. But without them, this land would not be the same and in the end, those of you that would not become slaves and cowards would barely scratch a meager living out of the spiritless dirt that you'd have left.' 'He knows nothing,' says the spirit speaker. 'Shut up!' say several captains. 'What is more, there is an easy solution. You move. You came here by chance. You have no connections to this land. There is not even anyone to raid nearby. Move west. Do not stop for three days. There you will find loot, fertile land and the same sea that we have here. Or you can die slaves and cowards,' The entire gathering goes silent. The elder raider stands up and walks up next to you. 'You have heard the advice of this outsider. Now we vote whether or not we take it. Those that would leave, raise their fists in the air. Those that would stay and fight these forest spirits do nothing,' Ursnak says. A fist gets raised. Then another. Then more and more, until it is clear that a majority is willing to listen to your advice. While those that do not raise their fists look at you with anger, you know that, at least for now you have avoided conflict. >Stay with them to make sure the move goes without incident. >Go to your family and return home. >Go back to the dryads and tell them of what has happened. >Other
I wonder when Vlad is going to actually get into a fight using dragon form. I want to see just how much damage he could do that way. Also, is there any way to get additional breath weapons?

You bring your family with you and you follow the raiders as they sail far to the West, well inside the Pernite territory. It will hardly be an easy life for them here, but at least they will be doing what they want to be doing. Murder and pillage. The land is fertile enough for farming, and you leave with them the knowledge of how to do it properly. They could just set up here and avoid all conflict, but you doubt that is within their nature. They are more likely to use their superior numbers and military might to unite the tribes of orcish slavers and bandits under their banners, and perhaps start a warlike civilization of their own. You have made certain to make diplomatic inroads with them, and by the time of your parting you know that, at least for now, you have nothing to worry about them allying with the Pernites, or just attacking you on a whim. After that, you return home. As you fly over a Pernite encampment, they loose some arrows at you. They barely scratch your scales. You reach your hold without any dramatic incident.

'Sup, Vlad! No casualties, but it was fucking close. They've sure as fuck have been rebuilding, but their focus on vigilance and watchmen and whatever the hell else their faith requires makes them a fucking nightmare to scout. We nearly got tagged by fucking wizards using some sort of a divination, but I think I've gotten pretty good at sensing that sort of shit, so we always got out of the way. Anyways, we started hearing things a few days in, when we started getting opportunities to listen in properly. Apparently there's this fucking prophet guy that's been telling them to be extra vigilant, that he knows that the Enemy- we figured out they meant you, by the way- is going to send his spies to them. Tough shit for them, because they never saw us, so I guess the prophet guy was correct, for all the good it did him. Anyways, with all of that going on I was pretty surprised to see that they aren't actually doing any military training. Prayers for soldiers, sure, fuck I'm fucking sick of the smell of incense by now, but no actual fucking training for any actual warriors. Their priests are getting all of that. Learning to harness the blessings of the Sun and shit,' 'Wait, sorry, Melandie, but how the hell do you know these things so specifically?'

Thought it was a shit idea at first, but when we got a routine going, I thought, well, what the hell, might as well go for it. He has more information about their religion than the fucking god did itself, from what I get from Lath. Might want to talk to him. Anyhow, long story short, they've got this prophet, that can apparently do proper prophecy, they are training a shit ton of priests and they're hella on the lookout for any spies.'

It takes several days more for Lathrien to return. When he does, he looks like he's seen a ghost. 'Lathrien, report,' 'Vlad, I barely know where to start,' 'At the beginning, perhaps?' 'Right. So we reached the abandoned city, and immediately I felt like something was off. There was enough spiritual energy in that place to fuel another five runeforges, and raise a dozen treants all at the same time. So, obviously we started digging. Did not intend for it to be so literal at first, but it became apparent that there's nothing weird going on above the ground, so we cleared the rubble and entered the basement of one of the larger buildings. Then we saw it. It was... Huge, I guess is the first thing I thought. Thousands of crystal coffins, for the lack of a better term. I looked around, each of them had a dead elf inside, or so I thought. I did the communion with spirits ritual properly, like you taught me, and I was fucking trapped. I got transported to this weird nightmare utopia mindscape. All white towers, beautiful gardens, crystal clear water and just... elves, walking around, saying nothing, looking straight ahead, with these tiny little smiles on their faces. Felt like a dirty urchin there. Then I start feeling more and more pleased with myself. Happy that I am there, and glad to be with my people again. As if there was anything alike between me and them. In a fucking day I was one of them in all but my own mind, just walking around beautiful gardens, holding hands with majestic noblewomen and smiling like an idiot. When it started encroaching into my mind I knew I had to break it, so I shattered the entire mindscape. When I woke up, all the fucking mages that I'd taken along were sitting around me, trying to figure out what to do. And then the fucking coffins started popping open. Not all of them, see, but there were almost a hundred that I'd clearly missed, or not checked properly, because the elves started waking up,' (cont.)
>>44138556'I do not mean like undead, I mean like from a deep sleep. So I stuck around for a while, making sure that they weren't going to be an immediate threat, but soon realized that they had no clue as to how to survive in the world these days. So I stayed behind a bit, tried teaching them how to hunt, how to farm. They were not thrilled with the idea of manual labour, but when they realized that they'd starve if they didn't do it, they begun learning it in earnest. Some of them picked it up enough to make me think that they're not all going to die, and then I rushed back here as fast as I could. Told them you might come around and establish some trade for the necessities, if they have anything in return. And now I am here,' 'Are you telling me we have ancient elves on our doorstep? The very same ones that caused the end of the world once already?' 'So now you get the reason for my concern,' Lathrien says.

>>44138733>>44138698Voting for +1 Str as well. I really want Vlad to become a monster in solo combat.
>>44138787Oh, sweet summer child, On /tg/ quests there is only diplomacy.
>>44138698Intelligence.I just want the "Since when were you under the impression?" Perk
>>44138817Hey I'm totally in favor of crushing Pern's followers and taking them as slaves.
>>44138817Is there a way to create a sword about as good as our Sword of the Blackguard yet? If there is, I am thinking that we create a gigantic two-handed weapon for if/when we pick up the 2h weapon perks.
>>44138856>picking 2h weapon perks>not fighting in dragon form
>>44138856Essentially, at this point it would be of worse craftsmanship, even with the runeforge, but it would make up for it by sheer weight and size.
>>44138885Eventually we'll be as strong in our human form as we are in our dragon form, anon.
>>44138906But it won't have the coolness factor of fighting in dragon form.
>>44138906If and that is IF we fokus strength instead of glorious Keikupath
Okay, looks like >Strength>Intelligence (which tier 2 perk?)
No one opposes the idea of having slaves during the early days of civilization right?
>>44138995Ritualist: When using the Ritual skill to cast Rituals, the time it takes to perform a ritual is halved. Furthermore, you can always roll the Ritual skill at a higher DC to perform it even more quickly, or without tools.
>>44138995>>Intelligence (which tier 2 perk?)>Evoker
welp im gonna go turn in for the night its 3:30 and i need to get out at 7 am thanks for running Dead.see you next time.
before i forget is there any chance of a short story with the pern blackguardlike the misadventuers of pernguy.
Mkay, taking it as Int, will make a twitter poll for perks, as I have got to get to sleep.
>>44139230Question, do we still have our elk? If so, could we blackguard it?
>>44139243You do have it, and you could, but blackguarding someone doesn't increase their intelligence. Treants are an exception, basically because you infuse them with intelligence before you undeadify them.
>>44138995>>Intelligence (which tier 2 perk?)>Evokerlets us destroy the enemy armies while our allies are among them. Giving them breathing room
Evoker objectively is the best choice
