It's the year of our lord 1095 AD. And it's the start of the new year, and you are a knight swore to the local lord. Breathing in the cold crisp air, you wonder to yourself what this new year will entail, you are a young enough lad knighted 2 years ago, making you 23 year old. You can still remember it as a fond memory as you look off in the distance."Arise, Sir Knight" The words echo throughout your mind. As you watch from the castle wall, the peasants working to and from in the cold weather that is winter. You don't envy them, as you been chosen by God, to be born at a higher status to become a knight, too bad you were the middle child and all your parent's wealth will go to your older more successful brother Arthur. He had been arms deep in guts and blood while you been having trouble finding a thief or bandit. Walking down the stairs, you are dressed in a surcoat that has yellow and red checkered pattern, with chain under it, and padding under that, allowing you to stay warm and agile if you happen to come across. Coming down the steps, you pass through the castle gates, and as you go mount up your horse for your daily patrol around the area, a frail peasant stands in your way. "M'Lord you got to help the village. Our flock of sheep, they be taken one by one in the middle of the night. You got to help or we may not last through winter." How do you response? (You can write in dialog) >Help>Don't Help>Write-in>Kill himWhere does this Knight come from? Different areas have different troops skills, and affect how you look. And will have a effect in the quest. >England >Italy >France>Holy Roman Empire>Greece>Write-In If you have any questions, I can answer them, I'll give a heads up if I'm leaving or going to run in the future.

And it's good to help your follow German in there time of need. You look down on the peasant, "Of course I will help. It's my Christian duty to do so. Lead the way." you commanded the man."Of course M'lord, just this way down the road to the village." ***On the travel, you see that the frozen weather is taking it's toll on the peasants. Sunken eyes stare at you from windows as your present is made known. They watch with uncertainly if you are here to take more wheat from them, or to help them. While in the castle you never saw the peasants up close. If your lord treats the peasants this low, how long will he last before a peasant revolt raises up? These questions cloud your mind, as you trot to the scene of the crime. "Here we are M'lord." The peasant said as he shows you the small flock of 7 sheep. They look better for wear than the farmers. "When do the sheep go missing?""At night M'lord.""Why don't you stay up and watch your flock?" You ask him."M'lord, I cannot.

You asked the peasant, you don't help people for free."M'lord, my village is poor, but we can give a good word to the Lord Arick, and prayers to the Good Lord in Heaven, for your kind deeds." He replied, with a smile, showing his yellow teeth. Having another good deed, when you are in front in God himself, seems to be a good reward all by itself. But maybe you want something you can hold in your hands.Dismounting, and with a crump as you step on the fresh snow. You walk over to the flock and look for clues, maybe some tracks can be find in the snow that can lead you to whoever been taking the flock one by one. After a bit of looking you have find human tracks, that seem to be leading a sheep out into the woods. "Find anything M'lord?" The peasant calls out as you look at the few hour old tracks.>Go back to the Castle, report what we find>Go mount up, and go after the tracks.>Kill the peasant, he's in on it.>Go follow the tracks but on foot.>Write-In>Not your problem

As you follow the tracks, you see off in the distance the tracks go into the woods. Continuing forth for some time, before you see smoke coming from a clearing. You dismount from your horse and close in for a closer look.Walking to the smoke, you see a campfire set up and is roasting what looks to be lamb on the fire. Around the campfire you see three men, eating and seem happy and well-fed. From behind a tree you listen."...Should we move to the next village?" "Nein, this village does nothing for it's people. We can pick it clean before moving on.""What will you guys do with your lot of the coin?""Get me some farmland, and get a cow with it." They talked to themselves of the futures they would have while you waiting thinking of what should be done next. Looking at them, they seemed to be armed with knives, your chain is strong, but they can overpower you if you scroll right in the middle of them.You have with you, a Long sword, a Bow with 10 arrows, and a dagger.

Quest resuming in a hour
"Time to give my bow some action" You whisper to yourself as you notch your first arrow. It was a clean hit, as the arrow went on through the neck of one of the bandits. Before the rest of them can react to your presence another arrow is flying to the chest of the 2nd bandit, he's fell flat on his back as he cough up blood. "Jesus Christ!" The last living bandit said, and takes off running into the woods.You can try your luck and shoot him, or you can try your hand at melee.

"It's the gallows for you, Bandit." You said and kicked him making him cough up blood. ***After tying him up, you set him on your steed. Tied up like a hog being led to slaughter. The cold air freeze your bones, as you make it back to the Peasants. You are greeted with cheers, as you parade around the tie up bandit. "M'lord, thank you so much. May the Heavenly Father, bless you for all your days." The peasant said, as he see the bandit."It was nothing, for a Knight like me. Worry not, for your flock is safe from anymore harm." "Thank you."***Going back to the castle, you place the bandit under arrest into the dungeon. After a hard day of work, you rest in the tavern drinking some ale, and eating some lamb. The local guards and men at arms, hear your tale of killing down foes, and buy you a drink on the house. After which you are set to meet with Lord Arick as he want to hear of what has happened in his lands. Going through the main hall you are greeted with a man with a long graying beard sitting in the throne, with two man at arms at his side. There is also a skinny lanky man, that whispers to the lord, before making himself unseen. "Sir, ... I have heard of your works at dealing with the local bandits. I must say I'm impressed, you seem to have what it takes. That's why I want to send you to my distance cousin, he was lands overrun with bandits, farms that have failed, and peasants that kill men. It's your job to go East and clear up the mess my Cousin had made. And if you do good enough work, the Duke may reward you with a plot of land.""M'lord, it will be my honor. But I must ask for some men to help me in this quest.""Yes, yes. You can have your pick of 10 men, of either the man of arms or archers. No mounted men I afraid.

William with his Horse Clover are going to Abodrites (Obotrites on map) He's mission to help the people there. From what learned from that land, it that it's outside the control of the Holy Roman Empire.It's under the control of King Henry, who want the people to engage in agriculture, he is friendly to his Danish and Saxon neighbors and invite Foreign merchants to his lands. Due to the land being recently under his control just 2 short years old, most of it's Pagan Slav population still need to be Germination and converted to Christianity. You learn that the people don't speak German but the Polabian language.Is there anything you want to do before making the trip? It's a week travel to get there. William, will bring his weapons and armor, as well as all the money he saved up. Before leaving William gives 10% of the money he took from the bandits, the priest blessed him and wish him a safe travel, he ask if you can bring a monk along on the trip so he may convert the people in Abodrites.

>>1775763This works, if any anon want to add there own list of ideas they can. This is somewhat important so I'm going to wait to let you vote on what you want to bring.Some info, you have 14.5 gold so you have enough money to buy chickens, goats, or even a cow. The place you're going is rumor to be in great need of food. So keep that in mind, from what you learn the place your going is near the Baltic Sea so plan properly is what I'm saying. You can buy goods on the way. The village your in has more sheep than people so prices of goods change depending on the area.
>>1775763Supporting. Buy some goats, 8 females 2 males. And 5 hens.
>>1775721Can our name be Germanized to Wilhelm? Makes no sense for our name to be william
>>1775831What about having our First name Wilhelm, middle name William?
>>1775852Makes no sense, Wilhelm is literally the german form of William. In some places in Germany, it's even spelt differently.
>>1775854Let's see if enough anons want to go with Wilhelm. I'm going to write the next update, so you can pick what to support what to bring with us to our travels.

>>1775721bring the priest; but we must protect him above all else-lots of archers (4-6 sounds good)-1-2 spearmen-1-2 dudes with a flail (normal or heavy)-1-2 dudes with a sword (two handed or with a shield)-and one last support person; squire or "medic"
>>1775821i agree with the lots of goats and hens, but I don't know if we can afford that many, or if we can even travel with that many...maybe some large fraction of those numbers might work...
>>1775921>Editchange 1/2-1/3 of the archers to crossbowmen>>1775763this looks pretty good, maybe one more archer, and maybe one of the mace guys has a flail...
Wilhelm brings the Monk along for the ride. He's name is Martin and you learn he had spend most of his life in the monastery. He is a happy man, happy to spread the faith of God to everyone he meets. He is average height, blonde hair amber eyes shaved in the tonsure hairstyle. He carries with him holy bible, a wooden cross, his brown robes, and a dagger to protect himself or cut his food.Taking your pick of men you pick 5 archers, dressed in simple leather padding they will come with you on your journey. Two of them have crossbows, while the rest have bows. They are simple but honest men able to hunt in a pinch. The leader of the group is a man named Leo, he has Brown hair and blue eyes.You also take your pick of 5 men of arms, armed with different weapons. 2 skilled with spears, 2 heavy hitters with flail and shield, and one man you gotten to know through your time spend in the Castle. Frank he is a 30 year old man, and he saw combat, as you can tell from his eyes. He is quick with sword, and has a good mind on him, knowing what to expect in travels. Due to you being a Knight, you already have a squire to bring, he comes from a local healer family from the village, and know how to heal certain wounds better than the rest.As a man of God, you make sure the Monk is kept safe from any local bandit that may try to harm him. Before you set out, you buy a collection of goats and hens to bring with you. The Hens are able to fit in the cart you have been given, and your squire keep the goats in check as they follow you along your travels north.Money spend:10.5 GoldMoney reminding4 GoldRoll 1d100 3 rolls.

>>1776050I agree. What should we do when we get there?
Wilhelm and his group of merry men, don't stop until they reach the small village of Rethwisch.It's a small fishing village with a small lake nearly. It was access to the Baltic sea, where fishermen go out and fish at.As you leave the HRE, you notice a change in the people and in the Language. The people here look Slav in nature, and the language they speak is Polabian. None, if not all don't speak German but they make way for you, none attack you on sight, and it seems like the rumors of them eating humans seem untrue. Making your way though you don't spot a church, the people here are pagans they seem to have a place of offering to there Slavic gods. That will not due as Martin already try to spread the word of Christ which seems to fall on deaf ears. Your men stay close, Frank offers advice. "Sir, Wilhelm. We should look for someone that speaks German, and find the lord we are to serve under." He said and resumed his position near the cart. "Welcome! Welcome to Rethwisch. I am Olaf, I serve the late Lord here.""What happened to the Lord?" "He was gone missing, bandits raided the village, taking some pigs and have carried him away. We are without army, and as such we can't go after them. But now that your here. We can get the Lord back."What do?

Wilhelm accept the call for help. But before they go looking for clues, to find the lord they ask Olaf for any leads.Olaf points them in the direction of the bandit camp. They said since there is no guards or army here, they make there present known in the area. They are currently camped in the lake nearly, the villagers tell Olaf there are at least 10 men in the island. That the leader is a mountain of a men wearing bear pelts, while the rest wear leather padded armor. They are mostly axe users but, a few of them could use a bow. The problem to get to the bandits is they group has to cross the lake into the island. Olaf led the party to the lake, and off in the distance you see the Bandit camp set up. Too far to make a shot, but close enough to count at least 13 men.The villagers and Olaf would be grateful if you are able to get rid of the bandits. And may reward you for your efforts. The quest you have been given was to help the local lord. But how you do it, will depend on your tactful mind.Battlemap coming soon.

That travelers are a rare sight as they are driven off by the bandits.The villagers are hopeful of what can be done. They provide a wagon and cloaks for your units. The crossbow men hide behind the overturn wagon. While you and Frank fake trying to repair a axis on the wagon. To the north up the road to the village the bowmen led by Leo wait in the trees for the signal. To the East the men of arms wait, dressed as travelers, coming to help the overturned wagon.Once everything is in position, you wait for what seems to be hours until they are spotted advancing to your location walking right into the trap.

It's a massacre is what can be said for the battle today.After the Leader fell, Wilhelm and Frank showed there true form. A quick swing of the sword and the bandit near you head is in two. Frank stab a man in the neck as he closed in at the bandit. The two crossbow man reloaded and one missed, but the other hit in the the chest knocking them out of the fight. 4 men killed in a matter of seconds. The archers set up from the north, started raining down death from above, as the bandit started to break. 2 more are filled with arrows, before they even get there weapon out. The men at arms charge from there position, ready to charge down the fleeing foe. But the Villagers with revenge in there eyes pelted the fleeing bandits with arrows, javelins and stones they can find. By the time Olaf was able to call them off, most bandits were beaten to death 10 times over. >Battle Won10 Bandits Killed0 InjuredTroops gain EXP.

Olaf tells Wilhelm, as the new lord he was to keep everything in order. And give you a detail list of the current food, morale, and religion of the town. He want for the village to grow quickly, so it's put on the map allowing it to grow in size.Morale: Above AverageMilitary: Enough Trained (12 units)Food: Below Average (Need more food to last through winter without starving)Trade: NonexistenceReligion: 13/93 Christians Renown: 1 Lord/Hero of the VillageCrops: None (Winter time)Actions allowed, (Villager, Military, Hero, Religion)>A. Build >B. Get food >C. Patrol >D. Convert >E. Teach >F. Write (letters, books)>G. Pray>I. Trade>Write-InThat's all for me tonight if you have questions or anything. I'm staying a bit to answer them. Come up with a list of what you want the people to do, and when I come back the most voted on thing will happen.Example: Wilhelm learn language, Monk teach to kids German language and Christ, Villagers build outposts/church, Military take care of bandit/patrol. If it make sense and you explain it so anons understand it can be done. If the hero want to go to make the king, he can do so, as long as it make sense and get votes. He can even spend his time drawing Jesus guiding his sword in battle, the sky is the limit.
>>1776840>Write-InSo I'm not sure if we can do more than one action so I figure what we do is raid the bandit camp and take whatever supplies and hopefully it will last us through winter, then get grain.We life with the villagers for now in their homes while teaching the willing to do basic drills and formations. See if we can get the villagers to help build the outpost around their village since we will be staying with them till winter is over.
>>1776840Will you use google docs or pastebin to help keep track of our cash, exp, people, and resources?What kind of people are in this village?How many of them speak our language?Olaf seems to speak our tongue well enough, is he germanic?Is there a Castle or estate where the late lord stayed at?What are the nearby settlements?How big is this land we now own, and how many people or assets are in/on it?
>>1776844Alright if you need help coming up with a turnI said 4 actions is allow, but if it's something simple it's a free actionWhat you want the Military to doWhat you want the Villagers to doWhat you want Wilhelm to doWhat you want the Monk to doWhat you want to do during the month is 1 military action of clearing the bandits. The Hero teaching is a 1 hero action, and the villagers building is 1 villager action. You have a free action with the monk, if he's left alone he will just learn Polabian language to preach about Christ>>17768531. I'm Using Pastebin, right now I'm adding the village stuff.2. 80 in the villagers, not counting Wilhelm and his 12 men team3. 2 Olaf is Germanic he helped the past lord before he was kill, he slowly teaching the Village Elder, so they can talk to the villagers on what they need/want4. Yes, he was from Denmark, before making his way to Hesse then making his way somehow to Rethwisch. So he knows Dane, German, and Polabian.5. A Large home big enough for 2 families has a stables added in.6. Yes, the nearly villages are a day travel away. You have to learn if there are major cities nearly from Olaf or locals.7. 80 villagers, +12 units we brought with us. Very poor fishing village. Pastebin will be updated.https://pastebin.com/SkScDuWDWilhelm Skills/stuff^https://pastebin.com/N7TagAGJTown^Not done yet back in a few mins you'll see changes
>>1776840Forget the most important thingCurrent holdings: Very poor village (Rethwisch)Set monthly tax (Due to being a village, tax is paid in goods) >No Taxes :^)>Low>Medium :^/>High>Very High>All of it :^(>Write-In can be somewhere in the middle of one of choices.Keep in mind, lower taxes, increase growth but that doesn't increase you money. (Lord been gone for a month, so no taxes were paid, although they were raided by bandits over the past month)
>>1776870>Lowwe take half and redistribute the rest to the village for now.Do we have to send anything back to our lord?
>>1776860Have the monk teach the pagans how to speak properly.
>>1776877>Do we have to send anything back to our lord?You're the lord now, Olaf tells that the current Duke doesn't care who running the village, just that the yearly tax pay in the fall is received. >>1776878Anything else you want to see in the pastebin? Right now you have 12 axes, and 9 padded armor to make use of. Bandits had 2 gold on them.
>>1776885>>1776826You said trade is non existent so cant sell the axes, so maybe arm villagers to guard the lords hall while on the mission?(while still keeping the one)I feel like we should develop this town, as a starting point for our new united germany, of course we shouldn't abandon the HRE just yet.
>>1776888Ayyo trips, although this is a slow board so not that impressive, anyways I forgot to say before we go we should build a church!
>>1776888You can use a action either a Villager one, or a Hero one to start trade. It's non existent since the other villages know there is bandits roaming the land. They need to know it's all clear before coming to trade. (Helpful tip from me, should bring Olaf along to speak with others)12 axes were looted from the bandits, 10 of them are normal, while 2 from the leader have engravings like the Vikings had.Linked the map here >>1775721 You are outside the HRE, in the country of Obotrities, but the current King Henry is friendly to his neighbors. He is now your liege, as this is his land. Meta Obotrites join HRE later on. Meta >>1776893Most people in /qst/ are Americans, it's faster in the morning.
One of the villager sees you have 5 hens, he want to gift you a cock do you accept?
>>1776900Please let him mean rooster.Accept.>>1776896Take Olaf and look through the previous lords affects, looking for documents and letters firstly.
>>1776840>Villager ActionHave them build Outposts so our archers can man them. And have they start building a barrack if our roll is high enough.>Military Action Clear out the rest of the bandits from the island and set up a patrol around the village. Loot the Bandit camp as well.Set up a Village Milita, arm 9 of the 19 with axes and the leather armor. Leaving 5 with only daggers and 10 without armor. 5 being archers.>Hero Action Have Wilhelm and Olaf look through the past Lord letters, writing. Then have him go to the Villages around with Olaf telling the bandits are defeated and we're the new lord of the village so come trade with us.>Religious ActionHave Martin teach the Villagers German and Christianity>>1776870Low taxes. Take half and give rest to villagers, they are going to need the food more than us.>>1776900Accept
>>1776885A quick simple description of named characters.Hmm, We aren't leaving the livestock unguarded and in the cold are we?>>1776900Yes we want that cock badly. I swear its for the hens!
>>1776860-this is only a rough outline, not a contributing suggestion, so probably don't use this...List of basic goals:-remove the last of the bandits (via force or peace)-get food for the peasants and the group-make this village more safe (i.e train the peasants, arm the peasants, set up watch towers, ect. )-spread religion-------------------Taxes should be low or none; we want to keep morale high and remain the local hero-remember to keep a bit of the loot for donating to the church

Rolled 69 (1d100)>>1776912Supporting
>>1776916how about we arm the peasants AFTER we make them christians, pagans are more likely to turn around and murder us
>>1777041What a lewd roll.
>>1777108>>1777112So how will you anons plan to make this small village into the staging ground into uniting Germany as a whole.The crusade seems like something we will have to deal with if we want to raise in fame and wealth quickly.For now we have to increase the amount of Germans in the village.More Germans more Christians less pagans. More wealth more trade more pop. More area of influence How about we write letters or get Germans to settle in thw village.
>>1777120We could easily call that village in our lords fief to come and work for us. He can even bring his family and friends it will be germans that like us and they can easily spread our fame in our village so they see that their new lord is a decent warrior/ruler.Then we start to trade with some other christians and german fiefs and get in their good grace. Maybe we can send some trades in the pagans and use then as spies?.
>>1777123Yes. Now we just have to somehow fit that all together into a action. The problem I see is the trip to the Lord is 1 week away. So it will take 2 weeks to just get 5-6 Germans. And peasants were bound to the land so It's hard to do that.I think this anon >>1776912 has the best plan so far. To get trade going have everyone do something. Clear out the bandits and keep them away. Get conversation going the whole bloom also having us learn the lay of the land around us

>>1776912>Religious Action>Have Martin teach the Villagers German and ChristianityMartin is thrill with Zealot glee, as he got a large flock of pagans to convert. He sets up a Schedule of daily things to do with the villagers, a skill that he had learned to do and follow for many years of his life. Martin currently reside in the gathering hall building, until a church is build, his schedule has him wake up early in the morning, eat with the villagers then he gets to work. He holds mass, he than teaches the people the German tongue, he then goes back into a evening mass. He is a true Zealot to the core, already baptised 6 pagans, and is slowly teaching 10 of the pagans German. 1/12 months into teaching 10 Villagers German. More teachers more people taught.You got>6 More Christians >10 Learning German 1/12 way doneMartin will passively convert people and keep teaching the 10 to speak and understand German. He ask for a church to be built.
>Villager Action>Have them build Outposts so our archers can man them. And have they start building a barrack if our roll is high enough.The villagers happy with the arrival of foreign help, and Wilhelm saving them from the bandits set off to work. They fell log after log, and quickly build the outposts even in the freezing cold, as they know they are safe now with your watchful eye. After getting 5 Outposts done around the village, they got halfway done with the barracks, it can fit you current units, but once it’s done it can fit 20 good men.You build>5 Outposts they sound the alarm and keep watch of the village>Half a Barracks where your men can rest for the night
>Military Action >Clear out the rest of the bandits from the island and set up a patrol around the village. Loot the Bandit camp as well.>Set up a Village Militia, arm 9 of the 19 with axes and the leather armor. Leaving 5 with only daggers and 10 without armor. 5 being archers.With the troops ready, after a short rest. Wilhelm set out to the lake crossing it to deal with the reminding bandits. As the boat comes to shore, meeting no resistance, you make your way to the bandit camp. From there you see two cooking up some pork, and the other two are sleeping. With them surrounded they surrender. Looting the camp was gave profit to your small village, 6 pigs still live, 6 axes were looted, and 24 gold coins were found. Questing the bandits showed they have killed the Lord long ago, and his is swimming with the fishes. The pigs are returned to the villagers and they cheer their goodwill, the axes are put to use arming the village militia set up. 19 good men, are in it, 14 with looted axes, and 5 with bows. 12 of them are armored with leather padded armor. Don’t expect them to hold the line when faced with many enemies.>Got 3 prisoners>Got rid of bandits>Gained Morale>24 gold, and 6 axes
>>1778597-village is defended enough, especially with the bandits gone...-2 remaining goals; religion and foodReligion just needs a church and time-Food is more difficult, a number of pigs isn't a legitimate answer to long term hunger, have some peasants do their job and farm-lastly, distribute any unwanted loot to the village, keep some for us and the church. I say that it's a little early for taxes, so we should probably just go around asking for donations
>>1778768Farm what?It's winter time. The ground is frozen.We should hunt a deer or 2 when we get low on food. Deer, at the time, are property of the Lord of the land and therefore ours.
>>1778789So hunt for boards and deers. We also have the goats and hens we brought with us.
Go out and explore nearby settlements, bring gold to buy grain and food.
We should allow the villagers to hunt for food only during this winter so they don't starve.
>>1778789Wait a minute we're being stupid we live right next to the ocean. We can get the villagers fishing nets, or better fishing shit to get more food for the winter
>>1778584I say we get 20 good men, stat.
yo, what happened, thread dead or something?where did everyone go?
