A domain of land coalesces in the aether and becomes quickly shredded and jagged as countless spears of both clear and cloudy crystal burst forth, forming themselves into a sharp, gleaming mountain. Within these crystals dance motes of multicolored light that pulse and interact with one another, seemingly sentient in spite of their form.

Their mind was warped and twisted from isolation and loneliness caused by existing in this bodyless state there they couldn't sense a thing, their mind wasn't used to godhood like their siblings. To preserve their sanity they filled a piece of land with strange red flora and fauna all connected by psionic xenofungus which connects all of the life spawned by the voice and acts as a neural network. The voice seeks to enter the physical realm at least partially to preserve his sanity
>>2275396Thernax drags his influence towards 0914, changing the regions to hills, and populating them with a species of furred animals named The Poddox. They are fat grazing creatures that look more like pigs with thick pelts of varying colors, from white, to brown, to black, or mottled forms of these colors. Thernax shall not demand the races of other gods challenge him for use of the resources he creates. They will only have to challenge him to try and change the terrains and such he makes.

They know not to disobey, they saw poor Tiberius after he was caught slacking off.Meanwhile, the Elves, satisfied by their monstrous creations, request the King to create for them iron armor and weapons, and they'd make it worth his while.The King obliges, in interest.

By the entrance he creates a sprawling town for adventurers and labyrinth-delvers to recover, sell their looted treasures, and replenish their items.
>>2275903The Fae King conquers all five of the territories left near his land.The construction of the castle finishes.With this The Fae King is ablw to disrupt any unwanted magic on his lands.
>>2275903>The treepeople observe the fire in the southern sky, wondering what that was.>Farming villages start dotting the riverside, fields criscrossed with irrigation channels. Trade intensifies between the savannah and the hiveforest.>Equipped with the newly invented "shoes" and riding dinosaurs, treepeople explore on foot farther from the river.>Hivetrees finally spread to the south of the hiveforest by way of natural seed dispersal.
>>2275903Whatever undead get destroyed are easily replaced x3 with the abomination undead creator, but for the first time something caught the attention of the undead, the fireball, the intelligent zombies start marching towards the direction it came while the others follow, conquering whatever land they come across
>>2275943I shall pray that you come to hang out and not murder me.The prayers shall not be answered but it's fine.
>>2275903The VOICE decides to stay in his home dimension. For now...The mind screamers expand the fungus southThe fungus begins hatching many worms to prepare the army for the VOICE
>>2275789>>2275903The motes of light seek their boundries, expanding their cities to dominate the 0516-0419 coast, the 0421-0524 coast, and the 0521-0726 coast.And, if it pleases you, please tell Thernax that I thank him for the smile that his message brought me, and that my Thaumites think that his jold looks like it's dancing to them.
>>2275955Fungal towers develop a new creature a spore launcher! These creatures are like mobile artillery expelling corrosive fungi over long distances
>>2275948Maybe, if a undead leader appears and negotiate, just maybe
>>2275971The Fae King shall offer his criminals and weaklings to the horde if need be.Just get the fuck out of my land.
>>2275903The hefty need in resources for the construction of the city and its upkeep has the dolls expand their territory, taking more land to the west (1907, 1808, 1909).Unfortunately, a pack of wild beasts has made its way into the toymaker's hut and ended the old man's life. The dolls hold a ceremony for their original creator and build a small temple on the hill in his name. Having learned of the land's treacherous nature, the dolls begin designing new models. The new versions are built for battle, made of precision clockwork, plated with metal and armed with fine cold weaponry.
>>2275981If we team up we can win
>>2275789Born of patience and planning, the Spider Queen launched her armada into the sky, riding the power of the waves from the material plane to carry the weight of the eggships above the endless starry void.With the intent of spreading her brood in new colonies along the coastlines, especially the southwest, she sends the ships out upon waves.Sending her mightiest soldiers north, she spreads her colony north into the fertile valley there, avoiding the presence of the Bulgerians.>>2275463>The lights find their way into the Spider Queen's forests; it's up to the Spider Queen as to whether or not this is taken as a threat or mere peaceful exploration to her spiderlings.The crystals and lights are met with peaceful acceptance, as long as they do not impair the hunting for prey inn the forests or encroach too close to the shipyard. Thicker webs are woven around 0713, just in case.
>>2276000Nice trips.Anyway, we'll see.Negotiations first, murder second.
>>2275913That's a lot of expansion, but I believe you missed a lot of turns so I'll give it to you. The crystalline terrain expands immensely across the western coast.>>2275918Idanikos successfully creates the massive structure, forever reaching down into the depths of oblivion. Welcome to the Cosmos, Idanikos.>>2275929The Fae King has successfully taken over the entirety of the southwest island. His castle is finished, and his town remains under construction.For future reference, you will need to roll to disrupt unwanted magic on your lands.>>2275931The hivetrees expand south.What direction specifically are your explorers heading? Simply exploring or are you to create land?>>2275943The undead expand to the southern cost, now just across from the Fae Kingdom. >>2275955>>2275969Very well, the voice remains in the cosmos as of now. There is no land south of your fungus' current position, would you happen to mean the section of land east of your main area?As a result of focusing most of your development away from taking hex and into firepower, you're able to successfully hatch a plethora of more worms as well as the spore launcher.>>2275983Very well. Their land expands, temple is built, and battle dolls are designed. The dolls may not be aware of this at the time, but this may potentially anger Thernax. (>>2275797)>>2276010Welcome back, Spider Queen. Does your IP happen to change a lot? Or have I given others control of your deity a couple times, hahaha.Her brood to the southwest would be met by a crystalline shore, claimed by the motes of light. To the north, you'd successfully set up a colony for your soldiers.
>>2276034The Fae King halts construction of his town immediately.He expands into the two hexes in the middle of the void and sends his Elf warriors there.He also takes many years, at least in Fae Time to create a new species...Horses.Barely trained and equipped with only the simplest of saddles, they are carried by swarms of Fairies struggling to keep them in the air over to the islands to be delivered to the Elves.
>>2276034Can I cross the void???If yes then conquer 0934,1235, and 1131As the taint and corruption spreads something happens in the center of the corruption, a group of undead levitate from the ground. One of them telepathically speaks "What is this?"
>>2276034Back at The Desktop for a bit.Thernax's desert expands itself Southward, the earth underneath this reign dusting into sandy layers and dunes.A water savoring plant known as The Hakka shall begin to sprout and offer a minor amount of life to the barren landscape. It is a brown leafed plant that grows hanging yellow fruits, round and filled to the brim with tangy juices. The plant stands at about 2ft tall and grows in clusters above underground water sources.Compliment Brrrlghhr for making things out of Jold. Thernax likes it when people use the things he makes.
>>2276034>Treemen explorers head in both directions away from the river, but most go south, where they've seen pretty lights.>They find more savannah in 1420-1623 and then desert in 1421-1524
>>2276080Thanks, but those were all my treepeople's ideas. I'll pass your compliments to them.You have made a nice landscape yourself.
>>2276034As the dolls keep upgrading and re-inventing themselves and their city, they grow curious of the world and seek out to learn more about it.They send caravans in four directions and build villages meant to be outposts (1904, 2308, 1912, 1608).
>>2276034>Does your IP happen to change a lot? It did a bit, yeah. Phoneposting>Her brood to the southwest would be met by a crystalline shoreRather than attempt to find purchase upon the crystalline shores, the brood press on, seeking the empty lands on the eastern shore.Theu cannibalize the weaker young to ensure they make the long journey, leaving the eastern spider colony a harsher, more merciless sect.
>>2276034Good night OP
>>2276034Thank you, I greatly appreciate the generous gesture. The Thaumites wish to continue their expansion along the southwestern coast in these areas.>>2276010They would like to thank the subjects of the Spider Queen, and will not interfere with their hunting and shall steer clear of the 0713 hex in whole.>>2276080Additionally, they would like to extend an offer of spare crystal to "the dancing stone guy" in exchange for jold.
Burgeria is infected by Japanese culture, this marks the founding of the United States of Clapan, expanding east in search of the holy land Japan.0910->1209, 1011->1210, 1012->1311
>>2276034Idanikos seizes control of the land surrounding his dungeon, and build roads outward from his first Dungeon City. But far underneath the ground he connects infinite passages and rooms at unfathomable depths. For there would only really be one dungeon.
>>2276057The Fae Kingdom expands to the two islands separating you and the undead. You'd create horses with rather ease, or at least within the necessary timeframe.>>2276071You will need some sort of method to crossing it, whatever that method is. Nothing may be magically created in this void, as this is where the ocean lies in the material plane. As you see this, this is a starry void going down infinitely. However, the waves' power is great enough to be felt in this dimension. You may use the waves with ships, but you must construct ships to do such.934 and 1235 were claimed by the Fae King first. If you want to claim this, you must roll to attack (1d20 + 1/4 of your claimed hex).>>2276080Welcome back Thernax. You missed a few turns, so I'll let you expand that much. The dolls to the northeast and the fae in the southern-west island continue to both use metal.The same lights inhabiting your area offer a trade of crystal for jold.>>2276088Very well.>>2276099And thus, they explore across grand expanses in all directions. The terrain in these areas is up to you, for as a demigod you create the areas.>>2276115You finally reach a very southern sector of the continent past the crystalline coast. Here, there is a small section of void where The Spider Queen may build. However, not far to the south from this position, there are two superpowers that appear to be in a conflict. Would you like to build here? Building here will not count onto your next turn.>>2276117Good night, fungus-anon.>>2276118The Thaumites will not be able to cover the entire area in one turn, but will get a large portion of it.>>2276133the United States of Clapan are unable to take over all the land desired, but they get a fair amount for now. The rest can be done next turn.>>2276141And so it is done.
>>2276170The town is still postponed for other problems.The Fae King takes the 3 hexes to the South-East.The Elves and Fairies disregard any other projects to focus solely on pushing themselves as far as possible to prepare for any future battles.A Fairy flies out to the undead hordes, seeking to speak with whatever leader the undead have.
>>2276170The Thaumites are happy with the pace of their expansion. They're curious what this land is that seems to have beaten them to the coast up ahead though!
Rolled 18 + 8 (1d20 + 8)>>2276170We'll have to deal with the inferior metals when we come to them unfortunately.Thernax shall absorb the being of The Jungle God and bind him as a minor god underneath Thernax. He does this by expanding his desert to the following hexes: 1020, 1120, 1121, 1221. Upon reaching The Jungle, the foliage and life that once inhabited the land shall be contoured, changing from tropical plant life, to the likes of small green people named The Jolteen.These people shall live as nomadic caravans in Thernax's desert, and enact his will. Their first order of being shall be to facilitate the trade of Jold between The Domain and The Crystal Realm.
>>2276170The undead will conquer the southwest coastThe regular undead slowly start changing into more dangerous combatant undeadWhen the fairy approaches the tainted land if the five lichs(?) can sense this then they will all try to telepathically communicate with the fairy each saying a single word " What. Are.You? Friend? Foe?"
>>2276170>Somehow, a lush valley appears at 0909! It is beautiful and calm, and populated solely by sexy monstergirls.>The valley has no mineral resources, all the food is poisonous and the monstergirls don't find outsiders sexually attractive at all.>Meanwhile, the hiveforest claims 1624, 1924 and 2023>Explorers find more desert at 1319 and 1320
>>2276205The "Jungle God" is me, and I'm in no hurry to be bound.
>>2276225Are you this guy?: >>2275041Why do you have a jungle in the middle of absolute nowhere
>>2276212The Fairy is both somewhat intimidated by the overwhelming amount of Undead speaking and impressed by the depravity of the act of taking a life and then stringing it along like your puppet.It clears it's throat nervously before speaking."This one is but a humble Fairy in the service of the great and powerful Fae King!""I come here, presenting his simple question!""What are you, and why are you marching towards us?"
>>2276170>>2276225>>2276231Hold on with that invasion there a sec, OPI thought the single jungle hex belonged to a guy that dropped the game.
>>2276231Yep, that's meThe crater is there to be a pretty landmark, of course.
>>2276244Okay well can I still do my thing there without the whole binding into my pantheon thing?
>>2276231>>2276243>>2276244>>2276250If we do go through with what you said before, Thernax has entirely absolved the jungle crater to his own. You however, aren't able to take over Brrrlghhr as a whole. Do you still wanna go through with this, knowing that's Brrrlghhr's?
>>2275903Expand the icy territories East, the pure Cold of the Void's edge will chill our lands.
>>2276170Having discovered lush forests and iron rich mountains along the way, the dolls focus on construction and research.The automatos force makes leaps into mathematics and engineering. Airships begin to fill the skies and advance into new territory (1809, 1710, 1709, 1610 or however far you let me go south west).
>>2276260Yeah I wanna take The Crater and make a race from its trees, but I don't wanna try and harm Brrrlghhr.The Jolteen are an interesting li'l race birthed from the work of two gods.Das some good lore right there.
>>2276170From hex 2430 comes a cry of "DEUS VULT!" From a hilltop fortress, men in armor spill forth, with one mission on their minds. PUT THE UNDEAD BACK IN THIER GRAVES!
>>2276281Shit, wrong picture.
While this is great, imma have to go to sleep. See y'all tomorrow.I'll pray that the zombies don't attack.
>>2276183The Fae King successfully takes the small island to the east of his kingdom, securing most of the surrounding islands in defense.>>2276191The Thaumites continue down the coast until their expansion is interrupted by a corrupted and foul land of taint. These lands are covered in undead.Thernax accepted your trade deal of jold for crystal.>>2276205Thernax's deserts swarm through the jungle crater's environment, burying it in sand as if it never existed. However, it's jungle foliage is now the new small green race, Jolteen, which raise from the sand of their former existence.>>2276212Undead reign expands more on the southwest coast, meeting up with the crystalline environment of the thaumites.>>2276215909 is now a beautiful paradise of monster girls, full of lamia, faun, spider girls, and more. You're doing the Goddess of Creation's work, Brrrlghhr.The hiveforest grows, and the explorer's explore.>>2276263The icy landscapes expand to the eastern side, contacting the coast.>>2276271Putting most time into developing your mathematics and engineering, the dolls don't expand too far during this turn, however they do complete some exploration southwest with their new airships.>>2276281Men of unknown origin, clad in metal armor quickly begin their expansion to the west to fight their incredibly powerful undead foes.>>2276307Good night fae-anon, I believe your negotiations will hold peace with the undead. We'll see!
The United States of Clapan continue their eastern expansion.
>>2276241"Life. Death. We. Are. One. Yet. Individuals."After a few seconds of silence" We. Seek. The. Source. Of. The. Destructive. Light."
>>2276320You Orc fuck, I knew you were doing some shady shit..For real tho, going to bed now.See ya.
>>2276328My fucking sides!
>>2276328See ya later bud
Rolled 20 (1d20)>>2276311Knowing that they will require more men and resources to combat the deeply embedded taint, the crusaders turn their efforts on the surrounding hexes. They seek to establish towns that they may recruit, mines that the recruits may be armed and armored with trustworthy steel, and farmlands that they all may eat.
>>2276311The Vampires of the Icy Steppes have no need for settlements, with the freezing caves and dark fissures more than acceptable coffins to escape the meager rays of day. Forgo all but the most meager expansion westward, and instead the icewalkers will focus on strengthening their undead powers. Flight, regeneration, invunerability, shapeshifting, all this and more will one day belong to the heirs of Frost.
>>2276311Back to The Phone, I'm at Dinner.No expansion this turn. Instead Thernax shall focus his godly might into making Jolf stronger than all known metals. He shall give it the blessing "Metal of The Gods" no other metal shall be harder, and if a harder one is made, it shall grow stronger too.
>>2276311Ever curious, the airships continue their voyage.
>>2276311The Thaumites wish to continue their expansion, naturally. They also wish to craft life-sized articulated arachnoid figures using their native crystal and dancing stone.>>2276320Gleaming spires of crystal lit from within by tens of thousands of dancing lights erupt destructively from the new ground that blossoms forth from the aether west of the Deadlands! It doesn't take long before swarms of tiny, twinkling shards of floating crystal are flying to meet the forces of rigormortis!
>>2276312The United States of Clapan comes to meet an area where roads lead to a massive dungeon city. The dungeon forms a labrrinth underground containing puzzles, traps, monsters, guardians, and treaures, extending downward infinitely. The entrance on the surface has a sprawling town where adventurer's recover from the labryinth's depths.Additionally, there is a peaceful valley north where many seductive monster girls are. None are attracted to your people, however.>>2276341The crusaders expand immensely, establishing many settlements to recruit others that may come, as well as mines and farms to gather resources. Nice roll.>>2276350Foregoing most exploration, the frost vampires take the time to grow their power. They begin to sprout wings, taking their time to grow to full strength.>>2276384Taking advantage of Thernax's vast power, he declares Jold as the strongest metal. It grows in hardness, durability, and potential sharpness, becoming the superior metal.>>2276398The doll's airships continue exploration to the southwest. They come near a space where another demigod has begun building (1613), populating the region with crystalline and stone islands that float in the void, with an endless upside down city on a ceiling that spans across the region's sky.>>2276402The Thaumites continue to grow, definitely now owning more hex than any other. While they would be a formidable opponent out of territory, they have little to no advancement in defense or military. Either way, it's lucky for others the thaumites appear so peaceful.
>>2276434Leathery white wings to carry them over the tundra wastes? This is a fine addition to the Vampire race.If/When the wings are developed, they will move to exercise their glorious new limbs, spreading the cold desire for blood every westward.
>>2276170>Would you like to build here?The Spider Sect will build here, grow strong, and devour any threats from the south that present themselves.
>>2276434"We must expand further!" comes the decree from the citadel. Hearing tales on the wind of the mythical metal known as Jold, it is decided that they should focus on the north west in particular, moving along the coastline.
>>2276434Oh shit, I forgot to post last turn.>In 1418, a brilliant inventor unites the treepeople to build an ambitious construction: a series of gigantic cranes to move ships up and down the waterfall, built of Jold and powered by waterwheels. This is the first time the treepeople organized on such a massive scale, marking the beginnings of political unification.>Faced with desert in the southwest, the treepeople expand in the other direction, finding savannah in 1516-1720 and arid steppe in 1616-1819>The bravest explorers even visit the strange domain of 1820.Now I'm going to sleep. Good night anons.
>>2276434One last little bit of expansion to round out the Thaumites' two-deep coastal line. The little motes of light would like to continue working on making their jolden-crystal spider figures, testing them to be sure that they can move just like the subjects of the Spider Queen.
>>2276434And back to Computer.Thernax's domain shall expand to the other side of his Eastern Mountain Range.He shall craft the likes of a swamp towards The North East of his domain, scouring the land in wet marshes and wispy trees that rise high into a wet canopy.Within this new swamp there shall be a number of large, pale beasts that are hyper territorial and scaled all over their bodies. These pure white lizard beings shall have four thick legs upon a fat body, seeming like some kind of mix between a dog an an alligator. They will be known as The Tugai.
>>2276490Forgot Swamp Map.
>>2276434>>2276476Missed a space.
>>2276434Idanikos continues expanding his domain, only minimally adjusting the surface, but focusing the majority of his Divine power on the complex structures beneath. For now, he ignores the space already claimed by other deities, as there is yet plenty left unclaimed.
>>2276434Reaching the point of interest, the dolls attempt to explore the islands. They study the city and seek out whoever might inhabit it.In the meantime, research is being done on optic prisms and natural magnets in the capital. Results are yet to be delivered. More ships leave the outpost of 1912, heading south.
The USC continue eastward
Rolled 14, 2, 2 = 18 (3d20)>>2276448With some waiting, the wings fully develop in each of the vampires, allowing effective expansion westward.>>2276452A little late to the colonization, the coast itself is completely claimed. Instead, a small maluable region in the arcane-less void rests not far from the coast, where the Spider Queen finally creates her new colony. Here, you're directly in range of the undead, the thaumites, and the fae.>>2276457Following the decree of their citadel and Thernax's announcement, the crusaders head north along the coast on a journey for jold.>>2276472Rest well, treepeople-anon. The exploration continues.>>2276476>>2276496The crystalline region expands.Roll 1d20 for making the spider figures to be sure they look accurate as they move.>>2276490>>2276492And expand it does, raising damp swamps on the east of his mountains, defended by the Tugai.>>2276503The dungeon's exterior expands slightly, while focusing most development on the underground sectors.>>2276507Airships leave 1912 to head further south.The previous exploring airships approach the islands and immense city in the sky, being welcomed by a lifeless environment and.... a several beams of light arcing through the sky... (Rolling dice).>>2276533They discover more of the dungeon to the north and a large swamp to the south.
Rolled 10 (1d20)>>2276547C'mon, hunt-worthy!
>>2276547>>2276507*voOOSH* Two beams of light arc past your airships, coming from unknown origin on the islands. They strike the area behind with with a roar, as it rips through the ground and tears upwards with an explosion.Another beam of light arcs once-more towards your airships, striking two consequent ships through their core, sending the remains down endless void.>>2276556It takes a bit of atonement, but with enough work the thaumites manage to make believable-looking crystal and jold spiderlings.
>>2276547This taste of new power is a heady drug. No expansion this turn, unless this power comes easier than we imagine. We will develop deadly claws, skeletal yet powerful limbs, and fangs to rip and tear pur victims apart. Let the humans have their tech, the fae their trickery, and the undead their numbers. One on One, let no one come close to a Vampire.
>>2276559Refresh my memory. What's the blue stuff on 1820, 1821, and 1921?
>>2276586yeah could we get a key or something
>>2276559Excellent. The Thaumites would like to spend the rest of this turn building more of thee spider bodies and playing with these new toys.
>>2276586>>2276594The blue spaces of 1820, 1821, and 1921 hold a large field of glowing blue flowers with a night skyscape. The center hosts a gargantuan tree with white glowing leaves. This land is created by The Goddess of Creation herself.
>>2276547Thernax takes a grand caravan of Jolteen and sends them due east to meet The Crusaders with shipments of Jold.From this point other gods are free to recruit Jolteen Nomads as members of their military so long as they're not being transformed for the sake of joining, such as being turned undead, or shape shifted into another race.The desert goes through a last spurt of growth, settling in place. This is the official size of The Great Desert.
>>2276601Idanikos stretches his domain to the northernmost edge of the cosmos, and creates there a second entrance to the dungeon. He creates the northern part of his domain with a frigid clime. This part of the dungeon is themed around Water and Ice. Diving equipment and warm clothes are necessary items for would-be delvers.
>>2276559The order comes from the grand master of the crusaders. Spread to 1920, then prepare to dig in!
>>2276559The first fleet steers back to a safer distance and sends out its fastest ship to the capital to inform them of the attack.During experimentation, the dolls find that formerly non magnetic metals can be magnetized through numerous ways. The dolls spend their time designing their first crude electomagnetic contraptions.
A large tribe of humans is raised to prominence by the workings of a new Demi-God named Wu-Saug. His faithful tribe build up a generations long construction of a city state deemed Yuntkilm.
>>2276639Thernax sends Wu a kiss.
>>2276641Wu-Saug falls animu style in embrassment
>>2276641The Thaumites would like to ask you to infuse their ground with jold. Would you be willing to trade for this favor?
>>2276693Thernax wants Belweir to formally enter a pantheon together with him.
>>2276693>>2276703Frakt is on the other side of his map, and watches the pantheon form... cooly.
>>2276547On tile 2304, and those around it, a sandy desert takes form. This is the land of heat and death, and soon many violent volcanoes burst forth, spewing toxic gas and magma over the land. From the flames, gibbering helfire demons take shape.
>>2276575This power indeed is not one easy to attain. Heading all expansion for now, the frost vampires feast off the divine energy you pour into their being. The process only begins, but their physical power begins to grow exceedingly.>>2276598Fair enough. By the end of this turn, they would have constructed a rather large quantity of spider beings, going through further trades to aquire enough jold. >>2276605The Jolteen take a whole caravan full of jold, following down the river to meet with the crusaders.The message is declared that Jolteen Nomads may be used as recruits for any deity's military, so long as they are taken in their natural form.The sand dunes push outwards once-more.>>2276607The dungeon's exterior expands to the northern coast, with a new water-ice dungeon entrance amongst this frigid climate.>>2276621The crusaders continue north where they'd meet up with a grand caravan of small green people named the Jolteen. They host a large shipment of jold in offering to the military.>>2276626The fast ship makes its way out towards the capital, telling of the attack, meanwhile the remaining ships that weren't destroyed fall back to a safe distance with no further harm.They begin the electromagnetic contraptions with no immediate results, but with further work something could come to fruition from the project.>>2276639Welcome to the Cosmos, Wu-Saug.>>2276719>>2276703In a mutual trade deal, the grounds of the entire crystalline coast and embedded and infused with jold. In addition, Thernax and Belweir join as a pact within one pantheon, each hosting equal power and peace.>>2276729In a burst of sand and flames, Agarius enters the Cosmos with his hellfire demons. The Goddess of Creation welcomes you.
>>2276739Land must be claimed! The flows of magma will surge southwest, and the forces of hell will follow!
>>2276739With the Jold acquired and the new recruits having begun their training, on the surface seemed things good. But there were new threats on the horizon, and the crusaders had spread themselves dangerously thin. It is ordered that Grand Fortresses be built. One on 2430, where the Order had it's start, and another on 1920, to protect The Goddess's Field.
>>2276751thats absolutely adorable<3
>>2276739Haha! It is grand indeed to see my children flourish. Let their strength increase once more! Despite skeletal thin arms, with white skin stretched over bones, they will still be able to crush a Knight in platemale with their bare hands!
>>2276751Omg it looks just like me.
>>2276765Which color are you again?
>>2276739May this pantheon be as eternity itself.With their new flourishing jold deposits, the Thaumites plan to begin splitting their efforts between building more spider frames and building up their territories as fortified cities, using jold-infused thaum crystal for both projects.>>2276751I had no idea that this was the most adorable pantheon ever! <3
>>2276739Having taken news of the attack, the dolls decide to improve their weaponry.With the currently ongoing experimentations a proposal is made. Electomagnetic weaponry that through the use of coils could accelerate hefty iron pieces strong enough to pierce stone, and even metal. The dolls pour time into researching coil guns and ways to implement them into their ships and soldiers.
>>2276774Light blue in the northeast corner. :D I am the eskimo vampire god!

>>2276739Thernax expands The Swampland, spreading foliage and woodland wherever he drags his influence.Thernax shall see if the god Satyr is slumbering, and if she is, he wants to move her statue and followers to the depths of The Grand Desert.I think at this point Thernax may be strong enough to beat out one-hex abandoned gods regardless of roll.>>2276757>>2276768>>2276774Thank you guys.
>>2276833Forgot pic.Red hexes are swamp.Circle is statue place.
>>2276828My color is red, you half-blind thot. Have your eyes rotted from your skull in the darkness of your caves?
>>2276840I forgot pic again.I'm not stupid I swear.
Instead of trying to aid his followers, Wu-Saug will be using Yuntkilm as a grand social experiment to see how Humans react to certain type of situations.First order of business, add a coven of 40 vampires to Yuntkilm to make the city-state interesting.
>>2276841I'm sorry, I didn't think someone from a land shaped like a penis could actually talk! Little overextended, arent you!?Your land shall run red with blood as red as your flags!!
>>2276863Let the mischievous villainous unforgivable experiments begin MUHAWAHWAHWAWA
>>2276860>land shaped like a penis.
>>2276854Hey man, those arent my Vampires are they?
>>2276890They are Shakanaka vampires, bearing charcoal black eyes and green teeth. These are just one of the horrors I plan to place in the city of Yuntkilm.
>>2276902Sounds like some of my ice-white vampires got scorched by those charcoal wierdo demons to my north.
Rolled 1, 16, 4 = 21 (3d20)>>2276752Not far now from your forces of hell a simple kingdom on hills, fields, and mountains can be seen to the southwest. Its a kingdom of sentient engineer dolls. Your magma flows closer towards it.>>2276756The Jold is forged into equipment for the crusaders as they train, meanwhile the grand fortresses are constructed in preparation for whatever hell comes this way. Godspeed.>>2276765Your power continues to seep within their bones; their claws turn sharp, their bones grow thick, and their teeth grow sharp. The ultimate killing machines are nearing full physical power.>>2276774With a base jold skeleton to your structures, the cities begin construction as extremely durable fortifications. The project may take awhile due to the extensive amount of land to cover, but they shall be near indestructible.>>2276781The construction and engineering continues to near completion, harboring weapons of metal and electromagnetism alike; using the power of powerful magnets to launch heated iron bolts out of coil guns. The only issue at the moment is finding a way to make them load quickly; it may be no time before coil guns are equipt on every soldier, however the ships will take more time.>>2276833>>2276840>>2276850The swamp crawls forwards, shaping void into the damp environment. As Thernax's territory borders the isolated stone islands with the endless city sky to the east of this new swamp, three arcs of light launch from its center. (Rolling Dice)>>2276854In the night, nobody takes notice of the new vampires to Yuntkilm. Then in a sudden moment, screams can be heard in various places across the city, as the charcoal black vampires feast on the various tribesmen's blood. Chaos breaks loose.
>>2276912Mwahahaha! Vampire superioricy is mine! With one last push, resolve the unnatural strength of the vampires!
>>2276912>>2276833A couple beams of light fire into the swamp's interior, plummeting into pools with little effect. Another strikes the core section of the swamp, causing an explosion that tears through the ground like an earthquake. The earth cracks, through which void can be seen, threatening to take down the whole swamp with it, as a large portion falls through.
>>2276912The Crusaders begin aggressively pushing outwards, seeking to claim as many Hexes as they can, prioritizing those closest to the two fortresses.
>>2276912Seeing the kingdom of engineers to the southwest, the magma expands and spreads northwest burning everything in its path. Engulfing everything in it's path in helfire.
>>2276938More detailed orders come. The blue flower field is off limits, and the hexes 2019 and 2020 absolutely must be claimed. Beyond that, it is left to the judgement of the northern chapter master.
>>2276912My currency of choice is time. As long as the light that the undead masses to the east seek does not come from the crystals of Thaum, then Thaum is a rich society. The Thaumites shall spend this turn fortifying their cities with jold-infused crystal, which shall henceforth be known as thaumium.>>2276927Wait what
Rolled 14 + 12 (1d20 + 12)>>227692750 Hexes times 1/4 is 12.5The laser Hexes have caused too much disturbance, they shall now meet with the magic of RETALIATION.The Swamp's presence spreads towards the hostile hexes, taking of them as much as they can manage, the ruins being shifted into a sullen, gritty metal named Oltar. The metal itself is very weak, more akin to copper, but is highly conductive to magic.
>>2276912Now lets see how the people will react to the Yuntkilm Council becoming more authoritarian to combat my manufactured Shakanaka vampires.>Influence prominent Yuntkilm councilmembers and landowners to demand for more reforms regarding security>Guardsmen prowl more and more in drones to combat the Shakanaka threat. Influence the creation of a Saug Inquisiton against vampires.Meanwhile...>Have an enormous underclass of Super Mutants concregate in the sewers after breaking out a Wizard's research facility in Yuntkilm. They will attempt occasional raids on the surface. Some Super Mutants who are friendly to humans become Caravan Guards for the trade routes of Yuntkilm, whilst some become mercenaries.
>>2276974I'm happy to put my fortifications on hold if you need thaumium. Thaumium seems to be almost as strong as jold with prime conductivity.
>>2276912The capital continues its progress into arming their forces with the new technology. Several workers begin loading the ships with ammunition.Well, I gotta sleep. Cya, m8s.
>>2276994You keep building your things! I'm not actually making ores to use them or anything, I just like making world building resources.I doubt we'll ever see a Jolteen wizard.
>>2276994>>2277015Though they are not the Exalted Goddess of Creation, they yet bear her mark. The realms of Thernax and Belweir are not to be infringed upon without permission, and those who worship them are to be protected as we would protect one another. So decrees The Grand Master!
>>2276938>>2276954 The northern chapter master insists on expanding more around around the upper area as to have more ground to stand on incase the vampires attack sooner than later. >>2276961And time you shall continue to expend, further pushing it into the development of your thaumium crystal cities. The development may still take some time.>>2276974The Swamp's earth retakes its place, raising to existence through the void and decimating what previously remained. The ruins of these islands sit grounded in the middle of the swamp, now made of the magic conductive Oltar metal.>>2276976A guard sits in every building now that everyone pays for in taxes. 25% of the population is now made of up guards. People are accused of being vampires and are immediately struck down by the guards. People attempt to riot to bring change, but ends in many dying from guards. Everything is hell.Meanwhile, the super mutants congregate in the sewers before performing occasional raids on the tribe, killing many citizens and guards alike with barely any recognition from the government nor their deity. Some friendly super mutants and killed, bringing the city to now be on the brink of a race war.>>2277000The coil guns come to completion for foot soldiers, meanwhile the production of airship artillery nears completion.Goodnight doll-anon.This may be one of the last updates for tonight, anons. Got a lot of work I have to get too. Or at very least, my updates will be more spaced out.
>>2277208Its fine OP! Thanks for running, hope we can get back to this soon! Also, no hard feelings about skipping said Vampires and their swole gains.
>>2277208If it ends out your last post for tonight, have a good night my dude. You're a good OP.
>>2277208There's no telling when the damn dirty blood-suckers will make a move... We must continue pushing outwards! Prioritize unclaimed hexes within 2 moves of a Fortress!
>>2276923>>2276943>>2277220aaaaaaaa, sorry vampire and lava anon! I'll do those on my next update, feel free to take another turn! I'll probably have one last update in a few hours.>>2277221I'm glad you like it m8, if thats the case good night for now <3love your drawings
>>2277200Also, this pleases The Grand Master.
>>2277235Is Grand Master himself a god?Also are The Crusaders human?
>>2277208>>2277232No problem OP, I get sleepy and miss players all the time.Swolepires have finished(?) their swole gains for now. How strong exactly your average Vampire is remains to be seen, but for now, let us continue expanding. Our southwestern border has some funny tin cans there. Expand where they do not!
>>2277241Demigod, and yes. I would never think to elevate myself to such a position as The Exalted Creator. Though I am greater than most men, my powers pale in comparison to Hers.
>>2277251By my counting, I have 25 territories to your 17.Come at me, heretic.
>>2277208>Now have a Messianic figure rise up from the peasant class of the city. His name will be Sheng-Li. He will sweep across all of the Yuntkilm realm spreading the word of Wu-Saug.>All of the among the denizens of the city will rejoice in him. >Now Sheng-Li stakes his claim to run against Dorman-Lur, the long running Chief Councilman of the city who had ran unopposed for 23 years.
Rolled 8 + 14 (1d20 + 14)>>227720856 Hexes times 1/4 is 14Thernax finds The United States of Clapan to be a bit disturbing. They seek mythical lands that do not exist, inhabit barren landscapes that their gods refuse to gift with the the art of terrain, and they seem more than overly brutal.Thernax's influence shall swallow them, converting the landscapes that are taken by him into grasslands, and change the form of the beings living there into that of a tall, snowy skinned race named The Thartar. They shall sprout nubby, blunt horns along their hairless heads heads and live a nomad lifestyle where they raise herds of Paddox.Just take over as much as we can on this side of the river first, if we end out taking over more than that we can spread over the river too.
>>2277275By my count, I have 3x more swoleness than you, AND I can fly. What are you gonna do, glare at me angrily?
>>2277491I have Jold, so that's equal to at least one Swoleness right there. As for the other two...Brother Hickory, would you be so kind as to demonstrate the defensive features of the Northern Grand Fortress?
>>2277496Fun stuff, how's your aim? Can you hit my darlings heart when its flying around in the dead of night, your fingers are frostbitten, and your ammo is giant wooden stakes?You're fighting both NATURE and YOUR NIGHTMARES. Humanities perfect natural predator. There is no winning. A final blow? I have secret allies. Look, my kin have already infested other lands. Soon, they will come for yours >:D
>>2277512Oh, you mean the southern side-show? Bah, we'll go purge those heathens after we're finished with you. Furthermore, your obsession with natural might blinds you to the possibilities offered by extensive training and warm gloves, which my brave followers have in abundance.
>>2277208In the event that I'm not on when the next turn rolls around, please repeat my action from this turn: try to occupy unclaimed (or vampire infested) hexes that are within 2 moves of a fortress.
>>2277578Bah, I will reconquer the land he luckily managed to take, and fortify the southern border as well. Fortress walls of ice will hold him back!
Too long has the Spider Queen grown dormant.She emerges.First, she greets her friend and neighbor, Belweir, complimenting them on their lovely Thaumium spires.She doubts there is much good hunting amidst the crystal lands, but offers fine silk in trade for lovely thaumium crystals to decorate her webs.Secondly, he northern Spider Soldiers begin their overdue expansion into unoccupied territories.They watch the emerging conflict between Thernax and the United States of Clapan with interest.Thirdly, she launches a massive colonial armada to occupy 2611 and establis the Western Web colony.Fourthly, her hungry and vital children of the Southern Spider Sect see a race of spiders hunting on 0533 and go there seeking fellowship only to find no spiders, great hunting, and strange movement of objects off the island.Time warp magic discovered.The Southern Spider Sect also send two small envoys, each consisting of one diplomat and two guards.One envoy greets the Fae upon 0735. They seek to praise the Fae on their powerful magic, wish for peaceful negotiations, and greatly desire to sample their savory delicacy known as "horses".The second envoy seeks to contact the undead presence on the mainland on 0930.They seek to negotiate establish proper hunting rights and free passage on the southern mainland.
>>2277624High class art.Look at that sassy crusader leg.
>>2277208USC expands northeast
>>2276205>>2276751>>2277200REEEEEEE GET OUT OF HERE NAPPY REEEEEEEEEE
>>2277727HA. Just kidding, seriously though didn't expect to see you here. That's a nice surprise
>>2277741Hi, i'm best god.
Alright guys, here's what may be your last update for tonight. Stuff is really starting to heat up now, I'm excited.>>2276923The frost vampire's have attained top class swoleness, developing incredibly powerful claws and teeth, durability bone structures, and increased wing strength. They swell with divine energy.>>2276943Agarius' hellscape spreads onwards to the northwest.>>2277222>>2277578And push outwards the crusaders do, aggressively claiming the regions that stand between the fortress and frost vampire's domain.>>2277251>>2277624Likewise, the frost swolepires close the gap between their new enemies, closing the border between frost wasteland and crusader land. The southern border of the frost territory now raises massive walls of ice in defense.If you wish to claim land he owns, you'll have to make an attack. (1d20 + 1/4 of amount of hex owned). >>2277329Tired of the torturous lives the tribesmen of Yutkilm, they choose to believe in Sheng-Li's tellings of their demigod Wu-Saug. He stands as their last hope, the shining beam of light that will save them all from what problems their lives are filled with today.The tribesmen unanimously vote for Sheng-Li, rising him to be the Chief Councilman of Yutkilm in hopes to get closer contact with their divine figure.>>2277373Standing unopposed to this point, Thernax's power has been allowed to grow immensely. USC stands no chance against the shifting land of rock and grassland that tears through their grounds to make it anew. (With a lucky roll,) The United States of Clapan manages to hold back some of their attacked land, although a fair amount of it is quickly converted.Thernax's influence changes the live forms here into the Thartar.>>2277636Wonderful production, might I say. Message to Belweir; >>2276994>She greets her friend and neighbor, Belweir, complimenting them on their lovely Thaumium spires.>She doubts there is much good hunting amidst the crystal lands, but offers fine silk in trade for lovely thaumium crystals to decorate her webs.The Spider Queen's northern and southern colonies successfully expand successfully, meanwhile the western web colony settles.Delivering message to Fae; >>2276307>The Southern Spider Sect also send two small envoys, each consisting of one diplomat and two guards.>One envoy greets the Fae upon 0735. They seek to praise the Fae on their powerful magic, wish for peaceful negotiations, and greatly desire to sample their savory delicacy known as "horses".And to the undead; >>2276212>They seek to negotiate establish proper hunting rights and free passage on the southern mainland.
>>2277650apologies, missed your post.Regardless of Thernax's attack, the USC turns its tail and continues expanse northeast.

Rolled 17 + 15 (1d20 + 15)>>227774560 Hexes times 1/4 is 15Thernax continues his conversion of The USC lannds, for sure pressing against The East of The Grand River to make sure it's banished and converted over on what's more of our "Mainland" We'll of course keep pressing on if we have really good rolls but getting ownership of this side of the river is most important.
>>2277770Welcome my dude
The USC continues heading northeast
Crap, I fell asleep! Commencing catch-up!>>2277208>>2277745The vast cities of the crystalline coast, spreading seamlessly over the broken plains of coastal Thaum, slowly grow a shade darker as their mixed, mish-mashed collection of clear and cloudy-white buildings, all filled with the prismatic motes of light that are the Thaumites going about their daily lives, are little by little covered from the outside with a thin, but rugged shell of jold infused Thaumium. The Thaumium is clear, but with tightly-dispersed flecks of powdered jold even distributed through its matrix, massively reinforcing the fragile thaum crystal at the cost of a noteable (but not exactly tragic) amount of its magical conductivity. It blocks some of the Thaumites' light, making the glow of their cities gradually less harsh on the eyes as the shells climb higher up on the walls of the standing structures, ensuring that they will stand no matter who may ask of them to fall down.It's a pleasure to be allowed to play in your realm! Whether you continue tonight or not, thank you for this.>>2277200JOLLY COOPERATION>>2277624Watching this fight troubles me. I like both sides!>>2277636>Belweir thanks the Spider Queen gratefully.>He explains that Thaum has no native hunting, nor need for such.>The crystals and the perpetually glittering just-on-the-edge-of-dawn sky of the realm give the Thaumites all they need.>The Thaumites wanted to join the Spiders on their hunts from time to time for fun!>Also Belweir thought it might be a good idea to have something more than just floating rocks to hit people with case someone comes to Thaum to be a bully.>On the subject of crystals: the Thaumites are overjoyed to give plenty of spare material to the Spider Queen!>They offer to enchant crystals for illumination, bounty, web strength, whatever the Queen may desire!>The silk shall be used to create flags, and to decorate buildings and spider frames.
>>2277791As some Spiders settle on the nearest Islands,a few enormous crystalline chess pieces appear on the coast of 0333 to keep watch. Otherwise, the place remains tranquil and otherworldly calm.

When this is done, she floods 809 as well.> If possible, next turn, she creates a race of nymphs and water spirits to rule her seas in the loosest meaning of "rule" possible.

He also spreads his influence eastward to place a third entrance at 1706, this time based around Air, Wind, and Storm.

>>2278219Everything I know is a bit of a stretch.You never said I had to teach you everything.Only the fireball.
>>2278221Are you just going to be bullied like that?
>>2278223I know you're trying to instigate this.I shall tell you that it will fail.The advantage with being undead is that you only have to focus on becoming more and more powerful.I can't really match that yet.
>>2278194>With a quick order to one of his Elf guards, two fine looking horses are brought inside the chamber.>"Please, consider these as a...Taste of the future..."The envoy of the Southern Spider Sect ravenously devour the horses, the diplomat pausing and remembering to utter thanks through glistening mandibles."We will wait most patiently for the audience."
>>2278221You're right, fireball will do!I might come to you for more knowledge.
>>2277763A huge meteor lands on 2234, creating pockets of zero gravity and floating islands on the tiles around.Raw ore and water flow from the crash site and up to said islands.
>>2278231Sure man, maybe we can get an alliance of sorts.As long as you don't fuck with the siege of the Dark City.>>2278230"I promise that it'll be an enlightening experience for the both of us!"A wave of the hand and another horse, though not as...Delicious as the previous ones comes out as well. It's tied up very tightly as it struggles."This can be enjoyed on the way home, my friend..."And thus, some quite terrified guards escort the envoy and their guards outside.
Let me join. Let it be 2030 and the six surrounding it. Let it be lush. Let it be shrouded by thick fog. Let it be silent. Let not a single sound be heard inside.
>>2278239We'll see>As long as you don't fuck with the siege of the Dark City.You sly anon, you can't persuade me with that. King Gaul does what he wants that he might even decide attacking the dark city will be the next best course of actions.
>>2278239The envoy flies back to their trpoical island colony and share their host's invitation and gift of the rare new delicacy "mortal terror of horse".
>>2278335Cute!But why am I not in there?
>>2278335Yo, this is really cool.
>>2278007>>2278010>>2278011>>2278026>>2278103Hey guys thanks for the welcome except for the screaming that was loud. I don't really want anything as much as I am collecting data of demensions close to my own.My people want to have a place to inhabit or potentially trade knowledge and resources and I am a seeker of those things.However they also plan to never let me return home with such knowledge alive as I was never a good follower of orders.I still want to help my world and expose the masses to the wonders that lay just beyond their own plane of existence, will you tell me of your world and it's mechanations I will gladly share the knowledge of mine.Worry not for my life I am a stranger and have survived thus far.
>>2278337Because Psychic Tree Daddy can't walk.He's just got roots.>>2278340That's Thernax, Belweir, Grand Master, Frakt, Protea, and Spider Queen.>>2278338Thank ya!
>>2278352Huh, Protea was the only one I didn't recognize. Expected more blue from an ocean goddess...
>>2278356Ye, maybe they have a bluer color in other designs, the background I use just makes blue really intense and bad for pelleting. So I just sorta went off Spider Queen's Colors.
>>2278345Greetings Strange visitor. Excuse me for my rudeness earlier. I'd love to welcome you into my realm as a guest, feel free to study and explore it to your heart's content
Rolled 17 + 4 (1d20 + 4)>>2277745>>2278182The Demon King expands and sends his magma southeast towards the Icy Vampire lands. The ice shall be melted. The Dolls have no souls the Demons care not for the one soul that they protect. I have no qualms with you puppetmaster.
>>2278424The Grand Master scowled beneath his helm as he read the report. The invasion had gone poorly, but the vampires would soon be fighting on two fronts. His foul mood darkened as he continued to read, and learned of the destructive and hedonistic nature of the demons."The enemy of my enemy... Is a convenient distraction." He rumbled.

With great power from her long rest, she finally expands with a grand flooding of waves through the void. Additionally, you create the race nymphs and water spirits on this turn.The rules of creation would indeed allow you to transform any washed away spiders into water-striders and diver-bell spiders, as well as take those who died to the sea of the lost.>>2277811 Spider Queen>>2277817>>2277827The Nothern Spider Soldiers only manage to expand a small portion of their commanded area, as Protea's ocean's flooded through the lands.Spiders and Thaumites begin trade.Making up for the lost land to the north, the western web expands.Note: Generally how I'll run things is events happen chronologically based on post order, where Protea took the land first and then the Spider's wouldn't be able to do unless they try to capture that land. You guys rp'd through it tho, so that works great as well.>>2277815 IdanikosIdanikos expands the surface of his areas into sprawling cities around the dungeons, as well as a new air themed dungeon to the east.>>2277915 Fae KingThe Fae Kingdom expands to the coast, ensuring they get their space on the mainland. Construction on the town nears completion.>>2277929 BrrrlghhrMessage to crusader’s delivered.As the treepeople step on the fields of The Goddess, they are enlightened with feelings of peace and refreshment. The tree momentarily glows brighter in response to their communication.It may take some time to interpret the trees' wishes or come to understand what it is, but for now the preists' do what they can to establish a connection.The hiveforest expands south, though not to the full degree of their desires on this turn.>>2278003 Dimensional BeingWelcome to the Cosmos, dimensional being.

The ice walls unfortunately don't hold up as long as planned (unlucky roll for defense). The Grand Master assists in the terrain conversion. The frost vampires however are putting up a good fight, as much more land would be claimed otherwise.Southern chapter expands.>>2278157 UndeadThe undead's region expands.The lichs do not immediately grasp their magical abilities, but in a short period of time they may master such to perform it on a plethora of undead.>>2278166 FraktI do give bonuses for defenses and offenses that are developed. I do all my rolls with in person dice for ease of quickly giving responses to defenses.Though the crusaders break through parts of the frost vampire's walls, the vampires strike with even greater power.

Rolled 9 + 7 (1d20 + 7)>>2278552The northern chapter shall launch a counter-offensive, seeking to reclaim the lost ground! Meanwhile, the southern chapter shall expand into hexes 2125 and 2126, to feed more resources into the ongoing struggle.
>>2277763This is going to be a lot but I missed 10 turns sooo Action: The fungal towers discuss among each other and arrive at the conclusion that complacency and stagnation lead to death, to live is to constantly change and evolve. So they create evolution chambers underground allowing them to easily change, study and modify genetic material and to test new species created.Action: Fungal tower's develop the technique of thoughtform creation. It allows the user to create mental constructs which can attack mentally or defend the user from psionic assaults. The construct power and the amount of constructs which can be created depends on the user's own power, but they do not drain the user's own powerAction: Using the evolution chamber fungal towers quickly give the worms ability to burrow and move quickly underground. Action: By experimenting with telekinesis fungal towers develop telekinetic force field abilityAction: Mental blow is developed using telepathy as a base. This psionic skill applies mental pressure in opponent and weakens their mind until they go unconscious
>>2278549Good morning OP!
>>2278549The Fae King uses his magic and expands north, taking the six immediate hexes in front of his shorelines.In the meantime, his town is finished.This gives him even more power over his domain, making his forests fight back any invaders by themselves.

The conversion of this territory into grasslands shall continue until we have wiped away the likes of the weirdos looking to find Japan.In the mean time though The Races of Thernax's domain shall start to adopt the practice of animal sacrifice in his name, ritualistically killing paddox in his honor during grand migrations.
>>2278549The USC continues running from the aggressive superpower, hoping that their neighbours will take on the threat
>>2278549From the crusaders, the treepeople learn about their struggle against beings of cold and darkness. The treepeople have been living in peace since the birth of their race, and the concept of a whole race bent on the destruction of others terrifies them. What if their peaceful history was a sweet delusion? What if there's dangers all around, sneaking up from every side?>The treepeople prepare for defence. Fortresses are built, warriors are trained, weapons are produced.>The increased demand for industrial production drives mining expansion. The need to pump water out of coal mines leads to the invention of the steam engine.>The hiveforest planting continues in 2024 and 2025>Scouts look for danger in 1321 and 1322, but find only more desert>The priests are amazed when the great tree in the center of the Goddess' Garden seems to answer them in a manner not unlike the hiveforest does. Nothing can be understood of the answer, but hopeful priests establish a school near the tree to try and understand it.
>>2277929>The Grand Master of the Crusade sends a missive, accepting your offer of trade.>The great beasts, while impressive, are unfortunately of little use to us. The food, cloth, and metal, by contrast, are of great value.>In return for these things, we are willing to offer steel and finished products. Yes, we know that Steel is inferior to Jold in many regards, but it is by far and away easier to mine and forge. A steel tool with last a quarter as long as a Jold one, but can be purchased for one-fifth the cost.

Good morning, friends!>>2278335Protea and The Queen are looking really good!>>2278549Good morning, OP!Belweir's eyes now turns to the massive void between the Wasteland and the Deadland, seeing more clay with which to mold new worlds. With his will, new ground shall blossom forth in 1025 and the surrounding four hexes, taking the form of broken, cliff-ridden plains with wild, unruly crystal structures that stand tall and skinny beneath a pre-dawn sky full of dark, rolling clouds. The tall crystal spires call down bolts of blazing skyfire, feeding off of the perpetual lightning storm and preventing its rage from marring the ground or any who would tread it. Each new strike of the sky's angry light upon the titanic crystal structures induces growth at their bases, producing harvestable shards of clear, glowing crystal.
>>2278620My mindworms could help you friend
>>2278627Well, don't be so quick to judge. My artificers are fascinated by these new "steam engines" of yours, and wish to examine them more closely. In exchange, I would order my own mining operations to begin seeking out coal in much greater quantities, that we may trade it to you. Sound fair?>>2278633What? What are you?! SHOW YOURSELF!
>>2278552One of the lichs will go to the coast awaiting the fairy while claiming 1334, 1433, 1533The rest of the liches decide it'll be best to construct defensive forts in key areas around the borders and capital (1531)

>>2278641I'm just a harmless friendly eldritch abomination my friend
>>2278549The dolls parley with the demons and choose not to pursue them further. However, while trust is good, control is better. Airships sweep to the north- and south-east of the temple to give it security just in case.Further research is done in the capital. Their advancement in coil technology leads the dolls to better control of electricity. The former experiments on prisms let's the dolls shape and guide light as they see fit.Some of the dolls decide to use this techonology to construct monuments that fragment natural light and color the capital city in vibrant spectral hues.
>>2278643Already claimed those hexes, my dude.
>>2278643I'll take the 6 north
>>2278549As Sheng-Li continues to fix the decades long mess of the former Council administration in the city, a prominent Wu-Saug priest named Liu Xia makes a ground breaking discovery when consulting a visiting alchemist in his monastary. With a combination of charcoal, sulfer, and saltpeter, Liu Xia devices a sort of combustible propellantlike mixture!>Liu Xia first ships this blueprint to the Yuntkilm Mining Order, which will revolutionize the efficiency of mining as gunpowder balls are used to better clear out caverns.>The Head Minister of Production within Sheng-Li's new Council administration mentions this dossier of "gunpowder" to him after weekly realm report meeting.>Convinced this appearance of gunpowder is not a coincidence, Sheng-Li is now putting effort to incorporate this deadly new powder into the Yuntkilm's military.
>>2278675Numerous glowing crystals float through the deadland territories bordering the crystal coast, concentrating around structures and groups of the undead and blinking curiously!
>>2278523Of course. I will dedicate one of my mindworm swarms to the task. However most of the psionic skills used by my creations are natural so your metal friend will have to learn through experience furthermore I cannot guarantee that a machine can learn even simple art of telepathyP.S. Sorry I didn't reply earlier I didn't see your post
>>2278549The magma continues to spread, it heads southeast to the nuetral area between the dolls and the demons and south, coming closer to the land of the Frost Vampires. The Demon King senses a battle of Fire and Ice will consume the land. He is eager for battle with the land of ice.
Rolled 10 + 6 (1d20 + 6)>>2278549Frakt exults in the joy of conquering.He continues to push forward, farther into the Red Crusaders territory, seeking to claim the fortress there. >>2278665He does see the dolls expansion along his border, and wants to remind the Cog demi-god that if he is greedy in his expansion along the icy borders, he may find himself Frakts new target. The Vampires, savage and bloodthirsty as they are, are NOBILITY at their hearts, and so look upon the dolls intricate forms with an eye that admires the intricate craftmanship. It would be prudent to remember that respect is a two way street.
>>2278708My word's might have been confusing.
>>2278719Fair enough, porcelain friend, thank you for clarifying.Now, I must return to my war with the Caped Crusaders. Have you had dealings with them? Would you be adverse in aiding my war with them?
>>2278549An elemental awakens from the crater. His sole purpose is to grow The Roil and create elementals to inhabit it.He names himself Omnath (Changing name from Wilhelm Bruun)The land is named The Roil (Written on the map, unless Omnath is better)Omnath starts making water elementals, which wil help terraform coming tiles
>>2278729There, name fixed
>>2278726My creations' goals are to unravel the world before them. To involve themselves into a war would be unwise.But out of goodwill, I would advise you to seek the ear of the patron of the undead as you might have a common goal.
>>2278686Once the lichs sense a living creature they will try to telepathically communicate saying " What. Are. You? Let. Us. Study. You."
>>2278549Idanikos influences yet a third dungeon city to form around his third entrance to the labyrinth.And now that he deems his inhabitants are prepared for it, he begins to sprinkle his entire domain with rare caves and ruins that connect to the Labyrinth underground, and allows the relatively weak monsters of the first few floors to roam the surface.
>>2278687Don't worry my ai doesn't need it nor do I, simply a friendly exchange that might lead to my people obtaining these abilities as I have. Your cummunication with me tells me we are equipped with the brain functionality to obtain it.If I can help you in any way in return let me know, I have been genetic altered to be fast strong and adapt to lifeforms I am exposed to. If it could be to your benifit I could form a temporary symbiotic connection to one of your mind worms to boost the psionic skills you're offering and help interact on a diplomatic level.I'll also offer you any information and resources I can from myself.
>>2278814When the shambling figures send the mental signals, all of the crystals in all of the deadland territories come to a halt! After several words are spoken from different sources, many of the crystals quickly zoom back toward the crystal coast, leaving just one group of small palm-sized floating crystals in 0930. They swarm around a crowd of their hosts, holding still within easy reach.
>>2278904Very well this intrigues me greatly I shall prepare a small still forming swarm for you to bond with, unless the visitor would prefer to test his mental power and wrestle control from an already formed swarm?
Expand. As much as possible. Focus on south. South-west. Let my land be silent. Let it be peaceful.
It now takes over an hour to update the map each turn, so this takes a significant portion of time out of the daily stuff I do, and I have a pretty busy day today and especially tomorrow; so I apologize if my updates grow scarce.Additionally, I try to give it some time so more people have an opportunity to participate in the turn.>>2278573 Grand MasterThe split resources between expanding in the south and fighting the war above has lead to less progress in the fight than desired, but the crusader's continue pushing forwards with their might.Trade begins with the treemen.>>2278578 THE VOICEIn THE VOICE's time in dormant, the construction of evolution chambers, training on thoughtform creation, development on telekinetic force fields, and deveolpment of mental blow have been underway. Some abilities may take more development to perfect, but overall THE VOICE's defensive and offensive capabilities increase.>>2278595 The Fae KingThe Fae King's region expands, and his town empowers the forests.>>2278607 ThernaxUSC rolled a 1 in defense. I think the rest is self-explanatory.The USC is practically feeding Thernax land at this point.>>2278611 The United States of ClapanWrapping around the only escape, just barely cut off, the USC continues to run. They're running out of resources to keep expanding, unable to collect at the same rate that Thernax destroys.>>2278615 BrrrlghhrFor the first time, the treepeople begin development on military. Development on fortresses begins, as well as forging armor and weaponry of jold.The hiveforest expands and the scouts explore.Just outside the Goddess' fields, the priests go back and forth from the school to the tree, doing what they can to interpret its glows.Steam engines continue development. You're nearing a very workable concept by now.Additionally, trade begins with the crusaders.>>2278632 BelweirThe plains of crystal structures are formed, and the lightning spires begin harvest, as Belweir's region expands.>>2278643 Undead>>2278675The grand expansion and construction of forts somewhat halts the lich's progress on their super-undead model. Development continues.>>2278665 Central CogFurther expansion is made to put room between borders and the temple. Research continues, and the dolls find great success in their light prisms.>>2278685 Wu-SaugThe Yuntkilm people spend much time developing gunpower prototypes and coming to understand its properties, while trying to incorporate it into the military.>>2278698 ArgariusThe lava expands south, not too far from the frost vampires now.>>2278708 FraktWith all resources directed towards destroying the crusaders, the frost vampires cut through the middle of the crusader's territory, splitting them off and taking the fort.Cont.

>>2278898Thernax would like to request a favor from Idanikos, builder of The Great Labyrinth.As the lands that are still in possession of The USC are extended and snakelike, and it would cause the domain of Thernax to grow into an unwieldy shape, but letting the demigod go would cause problems in the long run, he thinks it would be much better if Idanikos would instead claim the remaining territory.He suggests they both hold an attack, but any land claimed this turn instead be offered for The Dungeon to expand into.
>>2279070With desperation the USC tries a ridiculous strategy, focusing the power of clapping onto a single territory, 1707, seeking to make the land almost impassable, if this works then we can stall for more time.
>>2279070>The treepeople realize that the power steam is useful for more than pumping water. Steam hammers appear in the metalworking facilities, and first rotary steam engines are being developed.>To offset the lack of wood in the savannah, the treepeople start making ships out of metal.>The priests devise a way to coax the hivetrees to develop in particular ways.

>>2279070I expand on my north-west border, 1732-1929.>>2279087Since the king extend his influence all this way, surely you must seek the peace of the fog? Are you afraid? Do you want to hide? I can cover you, silence you, in stillness there is peace
>>2279132You intend to make an inland sea? Interesting...
>>2279134Uhh, ICly it's because they're blank-landed brutes that follow crazy dreams of lands that don't exist.OOCly it's because they're literally a meme nation looking to find Japan and have zero lore/terrain development. I really think being overly-silly like that ruins a lot of the world building.

>>2279103Idanikos shall consider your request. Idanikos would indeed enjoy the opportunity to expand his dungeon. However, Idanikos holds no enmity towards Clapan, and does not wish to make enemies unnecessarily before the Labyrinth is complete. Therefore, Idanikos will assist in the subjugation of Clapan on the condition that Thernax later cede a small amount of its territory under which, Dungeons representing the elements of Fire, in the South, and Earth, in the West, can be built.Are these conditions acceptable to Thernax?
Rolled 2 + 10 (1d20 + 10)>>2279070Studying the hungry expanse of Thernax, the dolls hold a council on wether or not the force to the west might pose a danger.Seeing how their words of peace were not met with a reply, they come to the conclusion that the force is merely biding its time and that they have to be proactive instead of waiting to be surrounded.Airships are sent to the west. Using their newly found telescopes, the dolls survey the Thernax lands and launch an attack.
>>2279158>OOCly it's because they're literally a meme nation looking to find Japan and have zero lore/terrain development. I really think being overly-silly like that ruins a lot of the world building.No fun aloud.

>>2279201It seems that at the moment Thernax's domain needs to readily defend itself.Thernax will agree to cede a portion of land on a date in which he is not burdened by a war so long as Idanikos proceeds to claim USC territory while Thernax counter-acts against the Cog Invasion.
Need to go sleep. Good night, deityanons.
>>2279166The lich studies it from a far then slowly nears it close enough to start experimenting on it, first it starts off light like touching it and sensing its aura then its starts getting harsher like absorbing some of its life force and probing in its mind.>>2279193My my wraiths or ghosts can hover over the void?

>>2279205The kind of fun you're trying to have needs to be approached tactfully in these threads. You can't just outright say "I'm playing Clapistan"; you would do better to give your society a name that reference to the joke more subtly and to just go through the actions without saying what exactly you're emulating. People will appreciate the joke a lot more if you let them find the punchline on their own.>>2279237The lich's touch one the crystal, a crystal the size of two palms with between 20-30 little motes within, sends it slowly drifting away, as though gravity were more of a suggestion for it than a hard rule. The rock itself exudes a mild magical aura, while the points of light within exude strong auras of magic with small sparks of life.The moment that the lich attempts to absorb life energy from the crystal, however, it does as the majority of the crystals before it and zings quickly back toward the crystal coast, the rest of the crystals in the Deadland territory quickly following suit!

Being sparked with mythical revere, Sheng-Li sends his son prince Shong Wei-Li to contact the Crusade States to broker an alliance. >Prince Shong Wei-Li will be an envoy for the city state of Yuntkilm.>Him and his envoy attendants with Yuntkilm Elite Royal guard in tow will come to contact the highest authority of the Crusader states.>They will attempt to establish a trade. Gunpowder with tools to manufacture firearms like the nation of Yuntkilm, with an influx of steel to be exported from the Crusade States.

>>2279337Though the grand master is skeptical at first of these strange new men and their strange new weapons, but after a demonstration is mildly impressed. A full suit of mastercraft Jold armor can turn aside the projectiles with ease... But the vampires do not wear such armor, do they?The artificers are pleased as punch to have new toys to play with, and they soon convince The Grand Master to accept the deal. The crusader's native supply of steel begins to strain, but many are confident this will not prove an issue in the long term.

>>2279074 Grand Masterhhhooooooly shit; just rolled a 1 on defense. The crusaders push forwards with more might than imaginable, pushing all resources into retaking the fortress and pushing the vampire scum back to their frozen wastes.>>2279087 Fae KingThe Fae Kingdom expands.>>2279103 Thernax>>2279203 Central Cog>>2279221>>2279240>>2279203The rolls sure have been interesting today. Do remember, Thernax may be the world power, but The Central Cog is fourth. Central Cog rolls nat 20 on defense. Thernax rolls 3 on defense.The dolls unleash a relentless furry of heated rods that tear through the swamps. Thernax's rolling hills unleash towards the doll's region, but cannot touch the dolls airships. These two extremely powerful forces collide with unimaginable strength, but neither takes much advancement.>>2279121 The United States of ClapanThe USC clumps into one space, desperately attempting to retain itself.

>>2279934Ah, I see. Very good! This was a crushing success, but me must be wary of over-extending ourselves. Seize the 3 northern territories, then fortify our holdings as much as possible with whatever resources are left over.
Rolled 11 + 6 (1d20 + 6)>>2279858Idanikos launches a concentrated offensive on Clapan from all sides. He extends the Labyrinth directly beneath Clapan, and warps the passages so the lower floors can emerge into the surface. Djinni, Griffins, and Storm Elementals emerge into what will soon be another part of the Labyrinth.
>>2279858oh god oh godThe Vampires meet the Demons, and make a proposition. "We have no souls, but can offer a bounty of them from the Caped Crusaders to our South. Join us, and together, we will feast on them, body and soul!"Meanwhile, the glaciers continue north, swallowing the last remnants the void between them and the doll lands.

He suggests that maybe since their connection is deeper than the common god relation they could offer their attack bonus either through temporary power transfer or helping shoot down airships with crystals.
>>2279858Using the steel bartered from the Crusader States, Sheng-Li puts an incredible public work toward infasture all in the Yuntkilm realm. Roads are built in the harsh steppes, desert, and mountainous terrain.Finally Liu Xia after being inducted into Sheng-Li's administration has a lead inventor finally produces the fire proto-rifle. Its in the heavy process of nominal incorporation, but field tests against various bandit camps have shown it to be devestating. Now Liu Xia and his team will be focusing on a side-device that isn't as reload intensive for close quarter combat.>The nation of Yuntkilm expands into 2436, 2336, 2535.>The Office of Commerce also has trade connections between the Crusader States increase.
>>2279858Cursing the fate that brought her Western Web colony to the forefront of such a potential battle, the Spider Queen expands south, into 2513 and 2613 where her spiders race across the plain to furiously dig and claw at the ice along the the southern border.They tirelessly continue their mysterious work, removing large chunks of ice from just beyond the Cyan Vampire border.
>>2279858Expand, a bit the south east border. I want to put most resources in reinforcing the mist, pouring energy into it. More than just absorbing sound, it will also confuse people sens of directions, mess with compass too if possible.

Rolled 10 + 10 (1d20 + 10)>>2279858The dolls hold the line and attempt to flank from the South. Devine powers attempt to spress the mointains and remove any obstacles the enemy might hide behind instead.
>>2280018It's a d20 roll plus 1/4 of your total hex count, highest roll wins usually.OP also does a defense roll off-site to see how effective of a victory it is.
>>2279858Never mind the expansion this round: more important matters call. Belweir is lending his land's strength to Thernax's cause.>>2279987Belweir is happy to do both of these things. The crystals of the Thunder Plains will cause notable electrical damage when broken, which may not jolt an airborne target, but could still start fires if broken on flammable materials.
>>2280030Nice, thank you. We'll have this war won over in no time like this. Nothing shall break The Pantheon!>>2279959Also glad you're staying with the war, Idanikos, this would be all kinds of hurt without ya.

>>2280222Knave, the crusaders are literally "KNIGHT MEMES, THE FACTION" and people... Tolerate me. Why? Because I'm more interesting than you are, fit into the theme better, and I'm willing to actually role-play shit instead of just going "Lololol look how quirky I am".
>>2280231>what is a birthdayI was calling attention to you being underage, only because you keep acting like you're in middle school.And by the way: I'm playing a less serious deity. I'm not playing anything edgy by any means. You're playing an obnoxious meme. I gave you instructions on how to play the same thing you currently are while being less annoying to everyone else.
>>2280238Nah I am fine, plus people would probably throw a shitstorm, I guess I took it too seriously when it was said anything could be created.>>2280254And you are a good judge of character?And like those instructions would help change an already defined nation.

Jesus, lots of drama. I can give a couple bits of my opinion here:clapan-anon can start anew somewhere else if they want, I won't say too much about my opinion on meme-nations because I'm really not bias'd on it, war was intended from the beginning, uhhhhh thats all. everyone chill your demigod tits.this >>2280238 is all accurate>>2279884 USC>>2279959 IdanikosThe United States of Clapan is no match for Idanikos' relentless waves of monsters.

An arc of lighting strikes the swamps from rods on the ships, magnetizing the metals beneath, before each ship drops a massive magnet that rips the metals through the terrain, tearing it apart from the inside.>>2280336 ProteaThe new sea opens at 1224, 1225, and 1325.>>2280173 AgariusYou forgot your attack roll, but I got you covered. 1d20+1/4 of hex; rolled 17+6.Joining forces with the frost vampires, at least temporarily, the demons grow wings and assist in the fight against the crusaders, foregoing tile advancement.

With my allies behind my, I can afford to split my focus, expanding into the small space between me and the strange web-land of the Spider Queen. Will she be friend, or will Spider and Vampire learn to love the taste of each other?
>>2280486Understandable, since you have so much to keep track of, but I believe you missed this expansion of the Western Web of the Spider Queen's territory.>>2279998>the Spider Queen expands south, into 2513 and 2613The Spider Queen, seeking further, nonviolent expansion, this turn sends colony expeditions to the pocket of 0119, discovering a small island of land surrounded by a small freshwater sea.Further expansion into 0120 is hampered by a deep, fathomless freshwater lake. Another ship settles in the northern mountain territory 1602 next to the Saytyr's isolated mountain shrine.They expedition finds the local mountain goats delicious and hopes they are unrelated.Also, the water-striders and diving-bell spiders begin work on establishing a dock and water-shipyard in 0608, hoping to commune with the denizens of Protea's domain and perhaps establish riverboat trade with Brrrlghhr, with monstergirls as contacts, if need be.
>>2280650Ahem...Your efforts to expand will have found spiders already occupying the land, and busy at work...>>2279998The Spider Queen welcomes the vampire presence and expresses interest in a parley.
>>2280399Hey man, very good work with your end of the war.If you ever wanted to join The Pantheon with me and Belweir I'd certainly vouch for you.We'll work out that land deal once things go peaceful again.

>>22808572035, 2135 and 2136
>>2280894Yeah you're right
>>2280783Indeed, you are surrounded on all sides by the Labyrinth. Your deals with other demigods matter very little to Idanikos.You are free to enter and face the Labyrinth, as may anyone strong enough, prepared enough, or foolish enough to do so.Be aware that, due to your Divine resistance to arcane energies, the Labyrinth is not capable of granting you or any other demigod the treasures it affords to mortals. You will also find yourself immune to various status effects that would otherwise be inflicted by the Labyrinth's denizens, and it is doubtful there is anything in the Labyrinth, except possibly at the very bottom, that could slay you if you did not wish it. Also know that any attempt to take control of the Labyrinth or mold it into your own domain will be taken as a declaration of war. As for your final inquiry, indeed the Labyrinth is very deep. However, magma would only be appropriate in the Fire-based dungeon, which is yet to be constructed.
>>2280894yeah I agree, I will post hex numbers from now on. 2105,2106, 2207,2307, 2309, 2210

>>2280677A parley is all well and good, but you're currently taking slivers off of my land for whatever purpose your alien mind could be concocting. If you're not with me agains't these Crusaders, than I am not with you when the Dolls or Demons decide to tear your mandibles from your jaws.So, what are you doing with MY ice, and are you going to help kill some crusaders?
>>2280901I'm sure my post to you was buried under all the activity but the traveler asks what is happening that the voice needs to expand?
>>2280919Yeah Idanikos worry not I'd love to watch your dungeon grow, in my demension I always thought they were very cool or uh of genuine intrigue. I hope that your vision is truly seen and apprised by master craftsman and architects.Don't worry about the treasure and stuff I'd definitely want the other mortals of the realm to earn them through their sweat and blood.Also you give me too much credit I'm not so strong I'm sure that your laberynth will be able to challenge even the most powerful of warriors when your plans are complete.
>>2280931The VOICE'S fungus feels threatened by expansion and conquest all around it, it understands that stagnation and complacency leads to death. Therefore to move to expand to conquer is to survive
>>2280959You've been nice enough to me voice, a benevolent fungus like yourself shouldn't have to worry about extinction. However I'll try to help make sure your expansion is uninterrupted and that any violent people are deterred if they decide to get in the way. It's the best way I know to pay you back for help you gave me.Of course if that isn't what you want I'll just try not to get in your way.Maybe being allied with you can give you my roll to help protect you in a skermish.
>>2280929Greetings Great Frakt,Recently, you found yourself in a position between two powerful aggressors, the fire demons to the north and your old enemies, the crusaders, to the south.Through clever negotiation, you were able to turn one aggressive neighbor, one you share no natural alliance with, into an ally against your true foe.The Spider Queen admires such impressive strategy and seeks to implement it herself, although her true enemy is stagnation.The glorious Queen questions though, if it would be wise of her to form such an alliance, such as yours with the demon king, with no thought to the future.When the demon king has aided your conquest, and your lovely crystalline spires sweep across former crusader lands, what rewards might the demon lord seek?What lands might they wish?Where might these lands be found?Do you truly wish to lose lands hard won when they were never promised?Truly, to fight a war on two fronts is a terrible thing.It is a fate that the Spider Queen would truly hate to happen to any of her colonies.And it is her heartfelt preference that such a fate not befall you as well.She asks of you only that you trust that if the time comes when such war is inevitable, she will take decisive action.As for the ice, we have great need of ice, one you might understand, and did not feel there was time to spare in requesting trade.We were unaware of the fleetness of tongue which the tongue of Frakt, the vampire demigod, commands.We sincerely apologize for underestimating you.As for helping you kill crusaders and expanding your territory southward, we would ask first of some assurances regarding our own expansion.As well as our soldiers being able to eat their own kills, of course.
>>2281073This Message to Frakt was from the Spider Queen, obviously.
>>2281008The VOICE is pleased to ally with the visitor and welcomes him into its lands. It would like to know the visitor's true name.
>>2281110It's Eli, I wonder if it weird that someone pretty much human is helping a fungus.In my world there are many forms of fungus that grow in our forests, some are edible while others will kill you in a heartbeat.Is there any danger to people coming into contact with your fungus or is it simply when you send the worms and use your abilities?
>>2281073We are kin, you and I, Spider Queen. While the demonic forces are happy to side with me as they gibber and prance, exulting in the consumption of souls, your forces and mine have the opportunity to be deep allies, of like-mind, as people unhindered by the shackles of over reliance on technology. That, and our mostly liquid-based diets. I imagine our peoples could spend long hours into the night with two bottles between them, one of blood, the other of envenomed guts.I will allow your forces to partake of my frozen lands, even aiding in your acquisition of more ice, should you need. In return, I wish for webbings, for a Vampire's thirst is rivaled only by their vanity, and such fine fibers will make fabulous attire for The Court of Blood.The Demon King and I understand that it is the Crusaders land itself that is the spoils. Our war efforts are fair in that we understand that if your forces are the ones to conquer, then you will be allowed to keep it. If he or I wish to trade lands to remain cohesive, or for certain strategic points, then we can discuss this like civilized darkspawn.Frakt understands your fear of stagnation. One need only look at your history, hemmed in one side by the raging oceans, mindless undead, and other strange nations of this peculiar void, to understand why. Worse still, to your back was the relentless Void, which you still overcame to bring yourself to my borders. I can respect that. Yet here you are, hemmed in by new forces. But this time, do not turn to violence, or apathy, but instead extend a carapacian claw of unity, to be met by the bloodstained and hellfire claws of an alliance willing to accept you. Together, we will march south, and you will find a new field, an expanse of void that will be claimed by the 3 of us, a perfect position for a new colony of yours.On a final note. What kind of soldier DOESN'T eat the ones they've slain? Only a truly evil demigod would deny their children and followers that. The alliance that will soon hopefully be known as the FrostFire Web should have a few simple sayings, to teach our younglings in their formative years.A fallen foe is a meal, you know.Always remember to pick your battlefields clean.Storage in icekeeps the bodies nice.A soul-less body tastes just as good! Grab a demon buddy, and share!Spider venom is a great treat for vampires looking for a little pizzaz in their next meal!
>>2281143No the fungus itself cannot do any harm it simply connects all strange red flora and fauna into a single intelligent ecosystem. It is quite sensitive though it will sense any foreign organism traveling on it and do its best to impede their movement and alert any mindworms near it as well as awaken any mindworm swarms which had burrowed underground . Furthermore the fungi visible on the ground is only the tip of the iceberg it extends deep underground and if the surface layer is destroyed it can quickly grow back
>>2280701This depiction of Idanikos is most pleasing to Idanikos. Idanikos will consider the possibility of joining your pantheon at a later date, possibly at the time of the promised exchange of land.>>2280953Idanikos is fooled not by your feigned weakness. You may claim to be a mere tourist, but your true power level is that of a demigod, although it is true your power holds no torch to that of Idanikos. If this were not so, your territory would not be "surrounded" by that of the Labyrinth, but a part of it.

The overgoddess gave us this place to make new creations, not to fight like children. This goes for you too, Thernax and Cog.

>>2281207>The King sends an invitation to The Spider Queen, inviting her and her subjects to a grand feast at his castle, promising much boar, cow and of course, horse.A great void ship caravan escorts the Spider Queen herself as she leaves her sacred temple for the first time since the creation of the universe.She is excited to have audience with the kingly wielder of such powerful magics, to have a diversion from the threat of war, and to dine at such a lavish feast.She normally just orders in.
>>2281143The VOICE requests a sample of Eli's blood
>>2281251There's a surprisingly happy atmosphere in the Fae Lands as the Spider Queen arrives.Seems a festival has started on the Fae King's orders, along with a parade to celebrate the spiders.As they enter the castle, they are met with an unecessarily large feast of meat and fruit, almost enough to feed the entire castle twice over. Sitting at the head of the collosal table and flanked by two Elf guards wearing a dark iron armor with skull motifs, is the Fae King himself."Ah, good to see that you arrived!""I hope there was no trouble on the way, no raiders or warriors or perhaps any..."A murderous look is sent towards a couple Fairies."Troublemakers?"
>>2281231This Union marks a new age, and will go down in history, told over still-living meals in the years to come. Already, within the frozen homesteads of the vampiric court, new banners flutter in the frozen winds. A strip of skin, flayed from a Crusader who fought for foolish reasons like honor and duty instead of survival itself. The ichors and dyes from the Spider's forest's yield a brilliant blue, shaped into into the eponymous FrostFire Web of the new alliance. The Demons enchantment causes a glistening of pool to tantalize in the depths of the web, never to clot, free-flowing as the blood that will run through the streets of our prey.>>2281217Dear, sweet, simple Protea. This is not a collaborative painting, but a canvas in which we must paint the survival of our children in strokes of blood and death. Every moment focused on art and philosophy, our enemies build warmachines and hordes. This is a race for dominance and survival, and you would do well to join us in our revels. It is not too late to convert your shimmering blue oceans to rich seas of a more... crimson hue.
>>2280486>The treepeople continue the planting of hivetrees. The arid strain is planted in 1526, and the newly developed semi-aquatic one in the swamps in 1416, 1415, 1515 and 1615>>2280662>The monstergirls are too insular to trade, but the spiders can establish contact with the treepeople directly.>>2281283>The treepeople send an envoy to the frosty vampire lands. "Why do you fight?", the envoy asks.
>>2281319The tree people would likely be unable to venture far into the frozen wastelands of the vampire's territory. On wings of unnatural might, they swoop down, carried by dagger-cold winds."We hunger." Was the first simple answer. When this drew only confused looks, the Vampires conferred for a moment, before continuing. "We have a great desire, a thirst, a need, for the crimson delight of mortals. Ones such as yourselves, or the dolls, or the demons, cannot slake that thirst. We cannot sup on the green slurry that we sense courses through what serves as your woody veins. So when men clad in iron and bearing righteousness as their burden march on our lands? When our only offense was existence, and having bordering lands? We fight. We fight to survive, at first, and when our strength serves us well, we fight to conquer. There is only one great truth, and one terrible lie.""Happiness can be found in Want. They who have no Desire have no Will, and those without Will are below even the meager snow-hares we hunt."The Vampires gaze drifts across the horizon. Their senses are keen, and perhaps they can see, or smell, what the envoy as a Tree Being can sense in their core. The Garden of the Mother of Creation."Reach Heaven through Violence."Turning back, the Vampires asks two questions of the envoy."Which is the truth, and which is the lie? Beyond that, why do you NOT fight?"
>>2281380"Why do we not fight? Because while the things we *want* are myriad, none of them are fighting."
>>2281283I approve of the new banner.Especially the magic achieved when enlarging it and scrolling up and down with it upon the screen.
>>2281397"Then you do not want survival? You must fight those who would take what is yours, or you must provide for someone who can fight for you. Violence is inescapable, you see.">>2281398Didn't even notice that, but I like it too. A shimmering flag to mark our multi-faceted natures, desires, all held in a web that drives to a single point.
>>2281415"Do not misunderstand. We will fight for our lives, if needed."
>>2281283[blue]"To accuse of naivete a being which has existed since near the beginning of this world is very bold of you, Fraktal emanation, aspect of sanguine snow. A true reply shall be given to you in time, but know it shall not be hand nor sword raised. Do not think me so inelegant."[/blue]
>>2281425The sticky lied to me. How undercutting of my claim to wisdom.
>>2281419The Vampires, and by extension, their patron God, shake their heads in dismissal."When do you [bold]not[/bold] need to fight for you life? Every day is a struggle to survive, until the day it isn't. Then, every day is a struggle to make sure others do not survive. Return to your forests, tree spirit, and follow your philosophy of passive acceptance. Perhaps you will be proven right, and you will win the honor to pierce our hearts with wooden roots.">>2281425Frakt smirks at the waterborne goddess. "My dear waterborne goddess, the same goes for you. Return to your lands, and you will be safe from my children. They have no desire to drain the "blood" of fish and water spirits. Return to your "art" and "tending", and I look forward to seeing the fruits of your philosophy bloom. Perhaps peaceful, passive living is the key to success? However, my choice is made. When the tin-men started this war, I answered in kind, and relish [bold]every[/bold] opportunity my children have to slay them, and sup on the intoxicating liquor that courses within them.

>>2281280The Spider Queen and her entourage are thrilled with the welcome they receive from the Fae Court.Laughing at the idea of raiders, warriors, or troublemakers, the Queen assured the King that her arrival was pleasant enough.The spiders salivate heavily at the presence of the lavish meal, but restrain themselves eying the Queen expectantly until, finally, she follows the king's lead and takes a bite.The spiders devour the meat in ravenous abandon.A few experiment with eating the fruit, encouraging others to try it as well.At one point, the leader of the Southern Sect earned a scornful and reprimanding glare from the Queen when he, admittedly politely, asked if one of the fairy servers was on the menu.The Spider Queen herself managed to eat twice as much as anyone else and still managed to do so demurely.Truly sated from the repast, the Queen asked the King if he wished to discuss the future of their kingdoms at the table, or somewhere more private?
>>2281217Thernax hasn't worried about any of his soldier's deaths because he's been fighting his ways by tossing mountains around and converting the terrains of lands and changing the forms of their people.I have pressed for peace though, we will need to see how Cog responds to know if this war of mine is quite over.
>>2281609Forgot to put on my name.
>>2281604The Fairies are disgusted by the ravenous spiders, many excusing themselves to go puke.The Elves however, seem utterly unaffected, many even smiling with psychopathic glee, though those are only the regular guards, as the King's Bodyguards keep their stoic look throughout the entire meal."I believe my throne room would be a more appropriate location, it's much cleaner, not to mention free of any prying eyes and ears..."The Fae King gets up and motions for the Spider Queen to follow, though orders his own guards to stay as he walks to another room."I believe we may reach a sort of mutual agreement!"
>>2281623The Spider Queen follows, leaving her own followers to stay in the dining hall, pr stretch their legs wherever permitted."I have no doubt a mutually beneficial agreement may be reached between us." She agrees as she is led towards a more private area.
>>2281636Finally arriving at the throne room, the Fae King stands in front of his throne, though he does not sit down."Now, while I have mostly been focusing on my own problems, I heard from a little birdy that there's a war going on up North!""While I also have some propositions of trade, i'm much more interested in matters of warfare."And with that, he sits down on his throne, smiling."Care to give me some details, dear Queen?"
>>2281650>i'm much more interested in matters of warfare.">"Care to give me some details, dear Queen?""Ah, that tiresome affair." She lets out a weary sigh.But her demeanor quickly brightens. "Well, I'd be remiss if I failed to provide an entertaining tale upon request of my gracious host. And we can't have that."As you may know, my colony at the northeastern edge of the void was recently encroached upon by two forces, choking out any room for expansion."I don't have to tell you how important that is." she smiled conspiratorially. "It seemed at first the forces of the demons and the vampires were set to wage war at the feet of my colony, with the winner surrounding my children and dwarfing my foothold."Then, all at once, with words spun as well as my very own webs, the demigod vampire secured the demons as allies against the plated humans.I quickly adjusted my plans and now find myself in the enviable position of having an alliance with Frakt that ensures both stability of my current colony and the promise of new lands to hunt in and win as well as dangerous and exciting new prey."Our first aerial assault is beginning now. I expect to see favorable results upon my return to the temple."The humans are in for a surprise. It was not designed for them, but humans, I hear, are vulnerable to many forms of attack."The beaming grin on her face betrays her true enjoyment of the war as an intriguing hunt.
>>2281691"Ah yes Humans...Strong creatures, though I hear they are also quite brittle at times..."Cracking his neck, the Fae King chuckles and takes a moment to stare at nothing in particular, as if to day dream. He soon snaps out of it and looks back to the Spider Queen."Sounds oh, so fun...""You wouldn't mind if I joined in, would you?"

>>2281700Hey, you can't torture animals forever!Sometimes, you just need to spice it up with a little humanity!
>>2281700You wouldn't think it, but I'm actually having a lot of fun here.
>>2281704Can my mindworms join in on the fun, too?
>>2281709The grand master is still leery of your creatures, but with foes pressing in on all fronts he can ill afford to turn away a potential ally.
>>2281711>>2281709What should we call our triple alliance?
>>2281742THE SOUTHERN CROSS!Quick, Wu, do you have any particular symbols associated with you? I feel an artistic mood overtaking me.
Also, life is happening. So, in the quite likely event that I am not able to participate going forward, here's a handy little AI to handle the goings of the crusade.1IF: There are hexes that used to be ours, but now aren't, launch attackELSE: Go to 22IF: There is an unoccupied hex bordered by at least 2 crusader occupied hexes, try to claim it. Determine priority based on proximity to either of the two fortresses. For equidistant hexes, go with the lowest number.ELSE: Go to 33IF: There is research that can be done (Improved Metallurgy, Blessed Battle Hymns, Inspire Zealotry, whatever new shit the Artificers have come up with), do so.ELSE: go to 44IF: there are hexes within 2 moves of a fortress or hostile power that are not currently fortified, fortify them.ELSE: Go to 55Launch an attack on ONE (1) of the following, determined by largest number of shared borders: Frakt, Agarius, Spider Queen, Fae King. If number of borders is equal, go with whoever's first on the list.
>>2281748This me whenever I visit the mortal realm, taking the aspect of a golden dragon. The Yuntkilm warring states uses a letter symbol for the word "Dragon" on their respective flags.The Jie-Li forces have a blue letter symbol, whilst the more ordained Wei-Li forces have a crimson letter symbol.
>>2281790Well, it stated out looking nice...
>>2281790>>2281709Also, before I forget, both of you might want to start looking for a land-grab soon. The south is about to get pretty crowded.
>>2281803Yup, seems i'll be one of the first hit, which is unfortunate.
>>2281788Also, I am a really shitty coder. OP, if you actually enact this, replace the second bit with this:2IF: There is an unoccupied hex bordered by at least 2 crusader occupied hexes, try to claim ONE OF THEM. Determine priority based on proximity to either of the two fortresses. For equidistant hexes, go with the lowest number. Then, take the remaining resources and go to 3.ELSE: Go to 3
>>2281788Also for 5, add "The Undead" to the BOTTOM of the enemies list. If anybody else declares war on me, add them after The Undead.
>>2281820And another change, because I am literally autistic.2IF: There is an unoccupied hex bordered by at least 2 crusader occupied hexes, try to claim ONE OF THEM. Determine priority based on number of borders* and proximity to either of the two fortresses. If 2 hexes have equal priority, go with the lowest number. Then, take the remaining resources and go to 3.*A hex that shares 3 borders has higher priority than one that shares 2, one that shares 4 has higher priority than one that shares 3, and so on.ELSE: Go to 3
>>2281788And so it seems this alliance of yours, is considering the faes as ennemies? If so we may be able to stuck a deal.I do not intend to be on the offensive, but a defensive pact on the other hand is of interest.
>>2281800A strange gift is deposited on the doorway of the Grand Master. It is sitting in a cold puddle of water, but is otherwise unharmed. A flag, bearing a strange design, on common, serviceable cloth.A golden cross, flanked by the curling flames of dragons. On it's crown, the prongs of the mindworms, cradling the purple star of The Mind.
>>2281853This is fucking rad, man

I just made sure to be Copley me before offering, after all it wouldn't look so different from your mind worms if you took it before.I think your cause can be very noble, if you connect ecosystems you can be an amazing positive force for the people of the land.You can help make foods grow at an alarming rate and if you really want to be worshipped by them.I'm not saying you want to be but at least your fungus would have a reputation to the people you've won over and they would let it expand to ensure their own prosperity.As for my blood when you look at it I'm sure you'll find it doesn't look any different from any other human you would come across but nontheless have what you think is necessary.
>>2281195Idanikos if you feel I'm impeding your progress I'll gladly gather my belongings and vacate your territory.You know these lands and lay claim to them with your craftsmanship.Be it true that the injections that gave me my strength I do not know the origin of but know this, by all intents and purposes I am human.Trust me my ego doesn't need me being called a demigod to fuel it, I stick to humbleness and kindness.

>>2277837>>2281213Slowly, one of the glass pyramids floats through the void to the Thaumites' hex 0725where it remains floating in the air. With a soft tinkling, the tip opens and reveals a large, canary-yellow button.
>>2281897Tell you what. Use your islands to the north of the perfidious knife-ears as a staging ground with which to enact justice upon them, and I shall... Turn a blind eye to your unnatural existence.
>>2281930See, now you've given me a real reason to go to war.
>>2281935You were the one who started things! If you had turned the foul spider-spawn away, I would not be pushed to such measures!
>>2281935>>2281930since none of you, tried to contact me and i'm in the middle ground here. I'm still willing to negotiate safe passage through my lands.
>>2281942Are you the elemental guy? Sorry I'm having trouble keeping up here
>>2281942Alright, I am willing to apologize, get rid of my forests and give you 3 hexes if you join me or at the very least leave me alone.>>2281940Foul? She has been nothing if civil so far, it justs seems like you have an intolerance for anything different than you!
>>2281947>civilSHE WAS THE BROKER FOR THE ALIANCE BETWEEN THE DEMONS AND THE VAMPIRES!
>>2281961I mean, there isn't much that isn't civil about brokering an alliance.But either way, I mostly meant civil to me, and that's all that matters here.
>>2281930They have not given me a reason to invade and even taught us magic, we are not invaders but we will unleash our full wrath if provoked.
>>2281985I am willing to teach you more magic if you join our alliance.
>>2281961Wu-Saug influences Shong Wei-Li in dream. Seeing the Crusader States as the forefront of human interests against the undead, he issues a decree to send Saug Inquisitors to the frontier of the Crusade lands to aid in the ongoing wars adding on to the previous actions of >>2280751
>>2281988For a defensive alliance then we got a deal
>>2281997Done.Gonna do some of my own stuff next turn then you'll get more magic, deal?
>>2281997How would that work, exactly? The fae are already at war with me.
>>2282005Uh, I give them magic and then we protect each other from attacks.That's how defensive alliances work, no?
>>2282012A defensive alliance means "If somebody declares war on you I'll declare war on them, but if *you* declare war on somebody, you're on your own." It's saying that you're willing to defend one another, but not to get involved in wars of aggression.
>>2282018I assume we're breaking the rules a bit here, because if we're doing it that way and just using it as a basic thing.Cus if we're going from that, then there'd be no point in doing it.
>>2282023Ugh, what the fuck did I just type?I meant it as in, that if we followed that definition then there would be no point in making the deal.
>>2281988>>2281985Magic is for people who aren't swole as hell.

What's the bump limit?Are we reaching New Thread status soon?
>>2282023Who started the war?Convince me to join the war since I don't normally declare war
>>2282144Fuck if I remember, just saying that this could be beneficial for the both of us.
>>2282144Which war? The Eastern Clash between the Frostfire Weblords and The Golden Cross Covenent started when the Iron Crusaders under The Grand Master invaded my land, that of the Frosted Blooddiners.
>>2282161Because you were eating people! People who could be living under my benevolent aegis instead!Also, we're The Crusaders.
>>2282174Nigga who cares.
the terrible moment where everyone realise no one know who stated the wars and why.
Bah. We all know they'd have attacked me had I not struck first.
>>2282174The wretched mortals of my realm live in cowering fear of their rightful rulers. A mortal, (human, orc, lesser elf, I care not) born into my realm can hope for a life of meager tribal living before either the cold, a great beast, or a Vampire slays them.This is righteous and proper. I did not look to interfere with your unnatural bending of wood and metal. Accept your guilt, meaningless as it is, and let us continue this war.
Hey, can I also just take over the mermaids cause the guy who made them never did anything with them or posted again and they're basically mine thematically anyway. It'd be like if someone made one hex of snow w/ snow zombies and just left, while frakt doesn't get any of it.
>>2282200roll for it i guess?
>>2281698>"You wouldn't mind if I joined in, would you?"I believe Frakt and Agarius would welcome your assistance.I know I would enjoy your helpful attention.OOC: Sleep has overtaken me
>>2282213"Most wonderful, I believe an introduction of my army is due, but before that, let me give you a proposition!""It seems to me like you truly enjoy our meats, so I propose that we have a trade deal!""Silk for meat, a good trade, wouldn't you say?"
>>2282151>>2282161Sounds like he is profiling me by my looks and invaded the vamps with a poor excuse , very well I shall join you with getting rid of the hostile being. In return I seek knowledge of magic and your own empires and races.
>>2282240>"Silk for meat, a good trade, wouldn't you say?"A most pleasant trade indeed. Agreed!"
>>2282252I can only promise you magic and knowledge of my empire, everything else comes from the rest.Otherwise, you have yourself a deal.>>2282254"Most excellent! The little things may be dealt with another time though, for I have more to show you!"The Fae King excitedly gets off his throne and starts moving onto another room, waving for the Spider Queen to follow him once again.
