They fail to do so but this has yielded some interesting knowledge in the art of space time warping. They use this knowledge to develop an advanced psi reflection ability allowing to ''reflect'' ranged attacks and even store them in a pocket dimension to fire laterAction: Fungal towers don't have time to waste to refine all of their new psi techniques and genetic changes to perfection. Instead they will periodically hold fights between elite mindworm swarms (each swarm participating in the tournament is each fungal tower's personal champion) and force them to refine these techniques by fighting each other later the improvements made to psi techniques as well as victorious swarm's DNA is analysed in the evolution chamber and used to modify other swarms.Action: I give crusaders 2 flying mindworm swarms and order them to kill anything that crusaders try to kill

A flash of light announces the arrival of a massive bolt of skyfire from the clear heavens that strikes the middle of the are of empty buildings, which all vaporize and blow away as dust on the void's winds, leaving a large square of land empty and waiting to host a new structure.

As the spider prepares another attack, a fire ball is sent to him by the Fae King."Step away, spider! You've won this one!"

We shall wait until the Spider's forces have landed, and allow the demons to marshal themselves!Instead, Frakt will take this time to develop his own brand of Magic, Hemomancy! Much like the Vampire's, it's effects are mostly physical, allowing the use of blood to strengthen ones-self to supernatural levels of speed and might!

>>2285574Do we get a bonus for tactics?
A final confrontation develops at Uuk-Pi Mountain range in the coming of the succession war over who should rule Yuntkilm. All loyalist forces and rebels alike march with bayoneted rifles in the fronlines, with sword bearing armored troops being the majority make up of each regiment.Shong Wei-Li's harbor more advanced guns though and better support via rotary bullet cannons.The only advantage Pan Jei-Li would have is a mercenary force of Super Mutant cavalry all up to bear for the command of combat. When the forces stop at the eerie patch of middle land that would determine that fate of the Yuntkilm throne, a parley of negotiation would first be brokered.Shong Wei-Li dawning the artefact bow & arrow in tow, truds along forward on horseback with his Royal Guard. Pan Ji-Li is more modest, keeping on foot with only his two trusted rebel assassins from the Eliamac Clan.Shong Wei-Li grumbles at Pan Jie-Li. "You have broken father's wish of a peaceful passing by waging war upon me and our people." Pan Jie-Li only grimances at such bold proclaimations. "The sole reason you are ordaned is because of your Clan lineage of nobility. Without such a blunder of ill-gain, I would be the true succession of Emperor Sheng-Li, our graceful father. Surrender now and our father shall be glad we've had made peace from his eyes in heaven."Shong Wei-Li's face darkens in anger. "I've tried to spare full annihilation brother, but now you've tried my benevolentcy."As the parley ends both leaders head back to the commands of their regiments. A stout stare down between between armies ensue before horns are bellowed. The sound of guns discharging all throughout a in line formation is so loud that even bears awake from hibernation. Curses, great bellows of pain, and the smell of bloodied smoke reaches all across of the field.It is at that moment the soldiers of the two sides raise their bayonets with various sword and axe wielding men to boot gearing for the charge. Pan Jie-Li's Super Mutant cavalry is the first to cross the bloody threshold on their sewer Giant Crocodile steeds. Some are shuttered out by the might of the Riflemen's furious bullets, but the mighty combined charge for the most part bashes through the lines. Seeing the oppurtunity, the Rebel forces all but sprint at the calling of blood on steel. Now it is an all out brawl pertaining death. Spears lodging into the guts of simple conscripts, bullets crashing against the ribs of soldiers, and axe-men reveling in the joys of blatant slaughter.It was then amidst the chaos Shong Wei-Li sighted his brother in whimsical bloodshed deftly cutting down all the loyalist dogs who beseeched at him with his scrimitar. With a grim face of determination, Shong Wei-Li undrawed the bow slung around his body and unquivered the single golden arrow that encompanied it. Shong Wei-Li had believed that if he was going to kill his very own brother, it should be done with the greatest weapon possible of Yuntkilm.
>>2285574Eli uses his mind worm body double to fly out and tell the nations of his shop in the north offering powerful potions and enchantments.He also researches the amplifying abilities that the voice's fungus has on the plant life, creating potions that have multiple effects at the same time much easier using it before mixture.This also leads to easy cross breeding of plant life which creates new magical plant life for him to research.Eli then successfully bonds the magic properties of the crystals to a weapons of demascus steel.This allows people of no magical talent to wield the elements in battle and those who are magicly talented to have an arcane weapon that suits them.He continues this method to make magical armors and uses he 1402 to have extra work space.

It had seemed all time had all but slowed all outisde the arrow's trajectory as it soared over the heads of the battle hardened men. Pan Jei-Li turned to see it come, only to have it strike straight into his heart. Falling to the ground, nearby inner groud to Pan Jei-Li are immediately alerted of his death. His Lieutenant did not dare alert the rest of the fighting rebels, less the whole of them would have surrendered. Rather than outright give in, Lieutenant Wong Ping orders a more harsher charge. Win or lose, the memory of Pan Jie-Li would've been preserved.Hours of hard fighting passed on, Pan Jei-Li's body already covered with the bodies of both sides. Shong Wei-Li's more trained and supplied men were gaining the high ground, defeat all but certained.It was then..Pan Jei-Li was suddenly awake. The first thing he did was brush away all the post-mortem bodies who had relieved themselves on him off. It was then he was alerted of the feeling of power all around him. The feeling was so immense that he had no time to phantom the disgusting offenses littered all over his form.It was then he felt something in his gut manifest..Soon the feeling become so strong that the presence moved from his gut and slowly manifested itself from the small of his back. A great orange Tiger of immense strength was despicted in a ghostlike presence around Pan Jie-Li. His form was that of a men, but completely comprized of all features of a Tiger. Pan Jie-Li stared at this great being for what seemed like milennia as the battle raged all around around him. It was then the great being spoke to, its graceful mouth never moving, but the words itself spoke emanating all throughout its form."I am [الصين تاون], a being long lost to all of history. I am yours to command."A sheer flock of knowledge suddenly assaulted Pan Jie-Li's entire mortal being. There he understood [الصين تاون] for what it was. Looking around for only a few moments, Pan Jie-Li had found his scrimitar buried in the pec of a Rifleman. Unearthing it, he turned at the advancing Shong Wei-Li troops. With unfanthomable speed with the sheer supernatural aid of [الصين تاون], Pan Jie-Li was fast as a moving star. Everywhere he dashed to and fro from, bloody would follow as wisps of his scrimitar would grace loyalist soldiers. One by one they all fell at him. All soldiers, rebel and loyalist alike were outright mystified at this force of nature. Seeing that it felled Wei troops, all the demoralized Jei rebels were rallied to bloodshed once more. Their meagre equipment crashed with vitality against the increasingly routed Wei. Shong Wei-Li's personal guard was all that was left, being mobbed all at once. All of Shong Wei-Li's retainers, personal nobility, and royal guard he knew for years were all but smuttered out by the rebels.It all seemed like a flash to him: His victory was all but certain,
>>2285665Now he kneels before his older brother. His brother did NOT deserve the throne! He was borne of a union from a common concubine from his father's court! It meant nothing that he was older! Alas, Shong Wei-Li was the one who knelt before his brother, awaiting his fate."I gave you a chance to surrender brother. You ignored all my well wishes. I did not take joy in your punishment." Raising his scimitar with his mighty spirit [الصين تاون] behind him, unseen to the assembly of Jei-Li forces behind him, with a single motion fells the head of the ordained heir of Sheng-Li. Bolsterous cheers are brought up all throughout the land, some just happy that the war is over and others at the cheer of Pan Jie-Li's excelled renowned sraight after the battle of Uuk-Pi Mountain. Whispers of his power sails all throughout the realm. Seeing his power as a gift from the Wu-Saug itself, all claimaint to recognize Pan Jie-Li as the true emperor. >In his first week alone as the coronated emperor of Yuntkilm, he has his half-brother's adminstratum purged. It is a week of total bloodshedded espionage to route out the Wei-Li loyalist hold outs.>With the statedom finally recentralized, he focuses on economic development than war, seeing as Yuntkilm gun industry is unmatched.>Mining operations are focuses on, trade would be expanded>Now Pan Jie-Li wishes to study what exact is this spirit that aids him when called

>>2285700>>>2285574While Belweir is busy concentrating the land's power upon his brother's war, the Thaumites concentrate their insatiable curiosity upon the new lands of their neighbors. Numerous small floating crystals lit with all the colors of the prism slowly enter the Nightlands, while still more cross the Thunder Plains to explore the wet world on the other side!
Rolled 15 + 11 (1d20 + 11)>>2285574Sorry, I was waxing poetic. basically, I Put blood in the vampires via the conceptual connection between blood and water, then the vampires attack each other because vampire bloodlust. the ocean of blood thing was just throwing shade really obscurely against frakt (he said I should have an ocean of blood, I said I don't have any edge to draw blood, and asked for an edge from him because he's so edgy. Then, I made an attempt to cause him to attack himself, in essence "lending" his edge). Black bile is, in the theory of humors, the opposite of blood, so I inflicted a surplus of black bile in the crusaders' bodies. Black bile causes melancholy (that's where the word comes from, actually) and sluggishness. No hexes were claimed, but I will make an attack roll for the storm.tl;dr>Protea uses water pulse. Vampires attack themselves in confusion. Protea uses stun spore. Crusaders are paralysed and can't move.
Rolled 7, 7, 19 = 33 (3d20)With the Elven King and Spider Queen retired to a more... intimate arena, the first battleground lies bloodied and empty.Until it isn't.Bloodstains pool and mix, before rising to form a lithe, pale Vampire."Mmm... delicious..." She murmurs, looking around for any drops he missed. Victoria always had a great thirst, even among her own kind.Something attracts her attention! Is she not alone?
>>2285838>tfw I never make sense>tfw I'm pretentious>tfw I have no face
Rolled 15 + 8 (1d20 + 8)>>2285762With a simple, "YES!", the Spider Queen leaps into frenzied battle!I say normally it'd be just a "3d20+modifier", but I'd like to drag this out for drama, so let's do 3 described posts of "1d20+modifier". After this round, King can roll first.
>>2285842>never makes sense>pretentious>facelessYour role-playing of the Sea seems spot-on to me.
>>2285909Problem is, I don't remember what my modifier is.
>>2285917See above territory listing.>Fae King: 4949 divded by 4 = 12+12(Fae King is favored to win 8 to 7. Not the widest of leads)
Rolled 6, 19, 6 = 31 (3d20)>>2285839Dozens of eyes spy her entrance into the arena.Cautious at first, then growing bolder at the not being stopped by the Fae court, Scarred Thorax steps into the arena and accepts the challenge.
Rolled 14 + 12 (1d20 + 12)>>2285945Oh right, sorry.Back to the fight.>>2285909"EXCELLENT!"And with that, the Fae King dashes forward, throwing a small fireball towards the Spider Queen to distract her mid-leap as he jumps up and goes to stab her with his sword.
Rolled 1, 16, 9 = 26 (3d20)>>2285839From the shadows a bulky undead emitting light from his chest up to his mouth, equipped with astral taint armour walks up towards the vampire and stops a few feet away.Seconds later a hooded figure is seen at the edge of the battleground.The vampire can starts to hear voices in her head "Now. Lets. See. Who. Will. Come. Out. On. Top."The moment she stops hearing the voices the undead lets out a roar spewing out fire from its mouth in the process.FIGHT BEGIN
>>2285956She expertly Dodges the fireball and twists to avoid the sword strike. It glances off her chitin but she fails to land a blow on the king.
>>2285839>>2285954>>22858393 way tussle?
Rolled 12 + 12 (1d20 + 12)>>2285574This is the undeads first taste of battle with little knowledge in tactics or strategy all they have is the lack of pain, overwhelming numbers, and their strong armor, but they continue to march to march east to consume everything in its path eventually reaching the borders of the crusaders
>>2285838i love how you just attack both side.
Rolled 9 + 12 (1d20 + 12)>>2286005With another snap of the Fae King's fingers another him appears from behind the Spider Queen. The two copies both charge at the same time to pincer attack her.
Rolled 4 + 4 (1d20 + 4)>>2286085In a graceful twirling motion, the Queen lashes out with legs and arms, attempting a deadly dance.
>>2286085Eli watches the fight through an extension of his body double, an exibition match always excites him and the fighters being so different makes it magical to watch.
>>2285987In a flurry of black cloth and rippling flesh, Victoria sets upon the massive Brute.[7v1] - Surpised by her speed, or perhaps her ferocity, the Undead reels, powerful claws slashing at its armor as it staggers back. However, Victoria is shocked at the creatures durability, and her blows, which would tear apart normal armor, do very little to the Undead's metal casing.[7v16] - At the behest of the Lich, the Brute lashes out at the close quarter noble, smacking her with a backhand that sends the Vampire flying across the arena, cracking the far wall with the force. Her wings fold beneath her, broken, as she crumples to the floor. She draws several ragged breaths as the Brute lumbers closer, her eyes wide with hatred and, perhaps, fear. That is, until her bleeding Temple sends a trickle of blood over her lips...[19v9] - Dilated pupils and manic laughter ring around the arena as Victoria holds the Brutes head into the air. It all happened in a flash, the blood-crazed Vampire nothing but a blur...
>>2286120Excuse me if i'm being stupid right now as i'm staying up pretty late to participatw in these due to time zones, but aren't you supposed to have a plus 8?With her dance, the Spider Queen manages to hit and dissipate the Fae King behind her with ease, it being an illusion."Now we're getting into the action!"The real Fae King twists to the right and down before quickly dashing in to slash at the Spider Queen, making a shallow cut only to be driven back by her deadly dance before he could do more.You truly are better than I expected!"
>>2286161Ignoring the glistening ichor dripping down her chitin, the Spider Queen thanks the king, accepting the compliment with grace."Your skill matches your formidable power as well."Yep. 8 not 4. I was dumb.
>>2286138As soon as the battle ended voices can be heard within her head again"Intriguing. Useful. Satisfying.We. Will. Meet. Again. Here's. Your. Reward. Do. As. You. Please."The undead brute suddenly his body reattaching itself together, the flames within his chest lighting up once again wiggling back to life as he's being held in the air by Victoria.
>>2286176Aren't you supposed to do an action and roll now or are we just gonna have me doing it first every time?
Well, either way, I have to go to sleep.See y'all tomorrow
>>2286211I was gonna have you go first. Good night.I might write up and roll an attack for you to see when you awake.
>>2285574Norhes flies from its lands, creating more floating forests at hexes 0922, 1022, 0823, and 0923>>2285700At the Border of Thernax's lands, Norhes stops, and calls out into his world:"I see you are strong, with many beings to worship you and your ally. I would like to join in this pantheon, and in return I shall make being that shall worship us all when I am able."
Rolled 15 + 11 (1d20 + 11)>>2285574Continue following The Plan. Have the Northern forces crush the Spider Queen's beach-head, while the southern chapter meets the undead advance and pushes it back.
>>2286075well, the goal is to stop the war, not to make one side win. I just want them to take a break to make some stuff, like an afterlife or culture or maybe a great city. I know that they will start back up eventually.
Since it was posted late last thread, people might not know that we have a discord!https://discord.gg/TQnVjd9Get in here fuckers.
>>2286492Yes that's what i love. If i recall you are not in any kind of alliance, are you? And we are quite similar.
>>2286419Thernax accepts this request.>>2285826He shall ask of his brother if the newcomer to The Pantheon is welcome.
>>2286735This one is as welcome as you or I. Its lands are a beauty to behold, and my venturing Thaumites tell me that it flies with such grace!
Rolled 7 + 8 (1d20 + 8)>>2285574The Spider Queen's northern colony further expands to 1803 and 1802, seeking to close the gap to 1903.She also presses on her assault against the tasty crusaders, seeking to extend her foothold in their lands.The captured humans within the seized land are herded and corralled into thickly constructed pens of wood and web for later domestication.
Rolled 10 + 8 (1d20 + 8)>>2286176>>2286211>>2286395With a sudden surge of ferocity, the Spider Queen abandons finesse against such a capable opponent and seeks, instead, to simply overwhelm the Fae King with a flurry of blows from her numerous limbs.
>>2285584 SternesThe mist continues to grow. Power is not reinforced this turn.>>2285595 BrrrlghhrThe swamp and hivetrees expand. Development on fire resistant trees begins. Yuntkilmian gun tech development begins. Work on great channel begins. Taking on many development tasks at once may lead to them taking quite awhile, but it'll get done in due time.The priests believe they might be onto something. The Goddess' tree glows brighter the more priests come. With enough giving their devotion, they begin to feel some sort of divine-arcane power flowing through them... A gift from the goddess herself?>>2285607 Fae KingThe fae forests grow. Familiars are created.>>2285609 THE VOICEIt appears whatever the fae are doing to defend themselves against the psionic powers is either working, or they got the luck on this battle. Their defenses aren't breached, and not much land is claimed. However, you do get your hands on some fairy corpses. Remaining resources go into developing this psionic beam.>>2285626Depends. Some tactics work just mechanically; flanking, attacking from multiple angles, ambushing, specific developments to counter other things, dividing enemy territory, attacking vital structures, etc. Others, I can be lenient on giving minor bonuses for good strategy. Bad strategy will probably just fail on its own.>>2285629 Wu-Saug>>2285665>>2285687Jesus, that's a lot of writing. Your worldbuilding is too good for us :)Jei-Li gains his spirit anime powers. Development continues on guns to perfect the design, as well as mining and trade.>>2285630 Eli>>2285735Eli uses his mind worm body double to fly out and tell the nations of his shop in the north offering powerful potions and enchantments.Enchanting developed. Land expanded a bit for working on plant and fungi experiments.Eli attempts to pour what power he has into attacking the Fae King's lands, but unfortunately, cannot even make a dent in their defenses.>>2285639 Agariusyou fuckin' eat em.>>2285700 ThernaxHooly shit.>>2285709 FraktVampires may now perform basic hemomancy, manipulating their own blood, and to an extent, the blood of others.>>2285838 ProteaI gotcha now.Protea successfully, temporarily, affects the vampires of Frakt and crusaders of Grand Master. A storm billows through the eastern coast above Frakt and Grand Master's territories, as their people begin to feel the effects. Next turn, Frakt's vampires begin attacking each other, and the crusader's can no longer move momentarily.>>2286057 DedfukThe undead ranks tear through the hivemind forests of Brrrlghhr just as they're attempting to develop defenses, before flooding into the crusader's southern sector. Although the undead tear through the forest with ease, the crusaders put up more of a fight.Cont.

>>2287701>>2287702As Belweir concentrates on sending Thernax the extra strength that his Brother needs, a remaining patch of unfilled void catches his mind's eye. With Thernax's massive victory just now, Belweir makes the call that some of his attention can be safely invested elsewhere for a moment. In hex 1709, he wills a new land to form: an extension of Thernax's bog with a monumental mountain rich in thaum crystals, jold, and red soil, one which reaches greedily for the angry summer sky. Crowning the summit of the mountain shall be a tower fashioned of twisted jold and dark thaumite, tipped with a large, rotating chamber outfitted with jolden mirrors and crystal lenses capable of weaponizing the blazing rays of a furious daystar, guiding the burning touch of its light to grace any subject that should arouse its ire. With this structure erected, any who would dare to take the offensive to the lands of Thernax shall be shown the light.
>>2287701Quickly sweep up 1903.And, uh, focus on infrastructure.
>>2287710Actually could you change psi beam into mental pierce. I didn't want to develop a beam or anything just a way to bypass or weaken mental defences
Get 2331 and 2332.The composition of the mist shall change to include 0,2% of opium. People will love it.Also power up disorienting powers, by making them able to disrupt even mental communication, no matter how many turn that may take.
>>2287741>>2287701I'll add Op post for easy tracking
>>2287701The unexpected invasion of undead takes the treepeople by surprise. Is this the end of the peaceful era?>Wary of taking any agressive actions for now, the treepeople continue on the developments they've begun last time.>Hearing of the scholars' success, more and more priest flock to the Goddess' Garden, eager to experience it for themselves.>Planting hivetrees in 1326 comes as the lowest priority.
>>2287702>>2287701Instead of taking any land, The Fae King instead chooses to use any resources for expansion towards fortifying his land and preparing it for any attacks, though he focuses on land that borders or is close to his enemies.Back in the Fae Lands, The Fae King smiles as he uses his magic on an unfortunate Elf. Torture or experimentation? To the Fae, it's nearly the same exact thing."Almost there, friend. Just relax, yes?"The Elf does not in fact relax as he's pounded with nearly unending magical energy until he simply stops. The Fae King smiles once again and orders his guards to take the man, and throw him into a magical pond.Many years later, the Elf climbs out of the lake, his eyes bloody and replaced by horns that pulse. Any attempts to subdue him are complete failures as he utilises the power of nature itself to bruatally kill everyone and everything that tries to stop him. That is, until the King arrives."Ah, I see the experiment has been a success! Welcome back to the world of the living, Prince!"And thus, with a bow and a swear of loyalty, the Fae Prince is sent out to further enhance the Fae Lands' capability in combat using his druidic magic.He is of course, only the first of many yet to come.
>>2287755Of course, I forget the image.Back to the duel.
Rolled 17 + 12 (1d20 + 12)>>2287496The Fae King laughs in a blood-seeking frenzy as he twirls, jumps, dodges and rolls to avoid the Spider Queen while also getting in any stabs he can.

Rolled 15 + 26 (1d20 + 26)>>2287701104/4=26OFF +1The last few pushes are at hand before finally Thernax an rest and start developing cool god things back home once more. The Cog Land to The North shall continue to be pressed and cleansed from the map, doll being make into Yunhai and mountains sprouting up along the boarders with the demon lands as to make sure their molten surface doesn't spill into The Taiga.
>>2287702Continue studying the art of Hemomancy! If I can't do that because of civil war, then I guess just fight myself? Should reduce the number of troops, but thats the great thing about Vampires. A human kills a human, he is just a human. Vampire kills Vampire, they inherit the losers blood, empowering them!
>>2287701>fully expand the inland sea, but don't take any other people's tiles.>Create lotus-shaped floating islands on the first sea. Invent poetry based magic.

>>2287762>The Fae King laughs in a blood-seeking frenzy as he twirls, jumps, dodges and rolls to avoid the Spider Queen while also getting in any stabs he can.Each of the Spider Queen's attacks blur past the King's frame as he skillfully dodges her dark blows.Each time he twists and bends away, he leaves a shallow cut on her body, marking his skill, claiming more victory.Until at last, she comes to a rest before him, her beautiful silk shawl in tatters slipping off her shoulders, her chitin and flesh raw and dripping black ichor, her chest heaving as she recovers from the exertion.Kneeling before the untouched visage of the Fae King, she bows her head but does not lower her gaze."I yield, powerful king of elves and fairy. Your skill at personal combat matches your mastery of the magical arts. There is much I could learn from you."Out of appreciation for your skill, as well as your discretion in allowing our battle be a private affair, is there some token you might ask of me?"
>>2287861"Touch essency glass"?
>>2287701Having eaten the mermaids, the demon king instructs his demons to meditate next to hellfire this turn. Hellish magic and chants are chanted while they do so. Finally the meditations stop and the demons now have hellfire breath which they can spew from their mouths. Hellfire which never stops burning and burns the soul as well as the body of those engulfed by it.
>>2287843Sorry for no response but I was busy and I still have some work to do, so i'll respond later on, maybe in an hour.
Rolled 4 + 12 (1d20 + 12)>>2287701The undead will march to 2126 2226 to spit Grand Master's nation in two to disturb their trade and communicationA lich will appear on 1626 telepathically communicating to the first sentient creature"We. Apologize. For. The. Unprovoked. Attack. Miscalculation."
>>2287701Eli forges a Crystal that grows based on its welders affinity using crystal magic technology.However this exhausted his current stock of crystal magics.(If op allows it) at the cost of 4 hexes to your land Eli can use this Crystal technology to create a space to forge the greatest sword the leader of the land could ever wield offering +2 to offensive capabilities or alternatively he can use it to create an armor that does the same thing offering +2 to defensive capabilities. This is a one time deal that can be made and you can only choose one as it requires a lot of time and resources to make. to prepare for this he also uses swarms of Mind worms to make even more body doubles so that he can simultaneously work all of his upcoming forges and shops.
>>2287843The Fae King huffs as he smirks and whispers some ancient words, the leaves, now fully green, returning to envelop the both of them, many taking a sharp edge and cutting him intentionally as the two royals return to the arena."Woah..."The Fae King plays the part of an exhausted and nearly beaten man as he breaths deeply and dramatically and leans down to rest as he looks up at all the staring Fae and Spiders."Tis' a tie!"And in moments, the crowd erupts, some in cheers while others in anger, with several fights being started and ended by guards gutting any Fairies and not so politely magically tying up any Elves and Spiders. The Fae King motions for the Spider Queen to follow him once again as he stumbles out of the arena and into towards the castle.
>Under the sovereign of Pan Jei-Li, efforts are put toward greater infrastructure after much of it was damaged in the civil war.>He abolishes Super Mutant slavery, which was heavy with controversy at first, but more or less accepted further in the years of his reignHe practiced with his stand, "China Town" more. After studying a long forgotten language called Arabic, Pan Jei-Li discovered its true name was indeed "China Town".>After decades of specializing in guns, Yunktkilm makes a standard bare of firearms in their army. >Now Pan Jei-Li wishes to focus development on siege based weaponry.>He employs a Dwarven engineering guild from the warrens at 2238 to complete such a task.Dwarves within the nation of Yunktkilm have been the subject of tyrannic ridicule for decades for the nature of their biology. Many humans had laughed at them for their short stature and temperate demeanors, which have long stroked flames of hatred between the two races in YuntkilmNow Pan Jei-Li seeks to rectify this by employing Dwarven ambassadors and their engineering guild to further the development of Yuntkilm. He hopes this will ease tensions as they ascend to a station of prominence in his administration.

Santiago Theodore Edmond Von Etvaria swilled another crimson drink around the crystalline glass he held delicately between two claws. Behind him, three more "nobles" lolled in a daze, their slit wrists pooling their vitalis into decanters on the table before them. These were the "Silver Fauxes", a collection of mortals stolen at birth and given every pleasure of nobility, taught manners and grace for this, the culmination and cultivation of their lives. A peasant was all well and good, but for truly wonderful taste, hand-reared was the way to go.Already a pool of the potent blood was collected in an adjoining room, where the land's most powerful hemomancers worked diligently. They would call out, across the cosmos, to like-minded individuals. With so much decadance and blood on hand, Santiago was at the center of the most power this land has seen since it's creation. Using it, those who wished could cross into this icy domain.As the drained bodies were dragged away, a new trio of tittering mortals were brought in. Santiago smiled, welcoming them to what they thought was just another formal dinner in their blessed lives."Is it just us?" One pale beauty asked, looking at the long table full of succulent tidbits, set for dozens of guests.Santiago smiled warmly, taking the young girl by her delicate, oh so tempting wrists."The other guests will be arriving shortly, my dear."

Throughout the lands, an astral image of the King appears in front of the faction leaders."Why, hello there, my fellow Demigods! I, the Lord Of The Fae Lands, have appeared before you to offer something rather grand!"On the Fae King's hand, a large parchment appears from nowhere, covered in strange, unrecognizable letters."I summon any willing powers to join me on this fantastic day where I shall host a Grand Tournament!"Many multicolored flames appear in the sky behind The Fae King, exploding into colorful displays before eventually disappearing."Of course, there are a couple rules. Number One, you may only bring a single combatant on your behalf, or even yourselves if you feel adequately powerful! Number Two, you cannot scamper off in my lands or aggresively attack any opponents in any way outside of battles! Number Three, if you wish to participate, you must offer something in return!"The King chuckles after speaking, as if he had just mentioned some joke only known to himself."Be it a piece of technology, a special piece of equipment, troops or anything else, should it be judged as worthwhile, it shall be allowed! Though you can be rest assured that me and my subjects will not even think of touching these offers, for it is not our place to do so!"The Fae King throws his lean arms to the sides as a grin overtakes his blonde-bearded face."These amazing offers shall be placed in the winning pool, which shall be granted to the best warrior among us!""Already in this pool, is knowledge of incredible magic, never before seen by anyone other than myself, two dozen young and magically gifted Fairies who shall loyally serve the winner, large amounts of iron for whatever purpose you seek, 6 of the greatest horses to have ever been born and ready to breed to create even greater ones, along with a skilled Elf warrior to guard the winner or follow his orders!"The Fae King stops speaking to take a couple deep breaths after his listing of the rewards."Now please, come and join me on this wonderful occasion!"With a snap of his fingers, the projection disappears and the same large parchment is placed in front of the watcher, translated to their language.

You are one of hundreds of demigods, and not just of those in your own realm, but in the dimensions beyond it. None have yet transcended to godhood, and I find it most unlikely that out of all of them it would be you to rise. I was forged under the will of The God of Creation, thousands of years before the Goddess of Creation's time. No, I was not born with my full power, but I have developed it over those years to a level you may not imagine."As she looks down to you and talks, you feel pulsating divine energy from her core beyond comprehension, as her figure almost glows. Her pure sea blue eyes look to you in a soft manner, smiling as she teasingly brushes the edge of her trident against your cheek. The edge that rubs against you is not sharp whatsoever, but its touch burns and seethes with divine radiance."...Maybe one day you will learn how this works. My only advice is don't go looking for purpose, you won't find any. As far as any of us know you're just a toy experiment of the Goddess of Creation's. It looks like artificial creations fall to greed, war, and murder all the same.

>>2300964 THE VOICE"...Courage is to face something you fear in the right way at the right time, for there is a core difference from courage and idiocy. It takes more courage to be the victim of violence than the perpetrator of violence. While this doesn't mean those who are courageous must be pacifists, it means there must be a balance. Courage is to never fall to your knees, for the greater the risk the brighter your heart shall burn. Courage is to never hide behind another's shield, nor hide behind a false tongue. My blessing was to test the greed within each of you, and thus far I’ve seen little but hatred and subterfuge. You have shown no courage, and spit in the face of all who do. You disgust me."The Goddess of Courage raises her free hand, pulling a strand of divine energy from what appears to be nothing, manifesting THE VOICE into a physical form. She holds his form in the air by his neck.“May you learn the peace of the gods by force.”She drives the head of her trident through the spiritual force like butter, as THE VOICE lets out one last scream. The form falls lifeless on the trident’s head, slowly dissipating into nothingness.THE VOICE is kicked from the quest for toxicity, attempting to cheat rolls, and being a total cunt.

Receive this message and know this: Though the spiders hunger and we still, even now, hunt your men and land upon the mainland, the Spider Queen values and respects the sacred sovereignty of the pocket."And with that, her void ships pass the Crusaders pocket and descend upon the lands that the Great Weavers informed her have been left vacant by the silencing of the Voice.The voidships touch down on hex 2039.Finally, after receiving no response from the Cogs, her Spider Solders descend upon hex 1702, enslaving the depraved goat women for their stone carving skills.

Ordinarily, the entire Hunt would be sent down to eradicate and enslave you, but it seems it's your lucky day."His horse gallops straight towards anyone that looks like they're in charge, the leader drawing his sword to decapitate them before riding back with uncanny speed."I, Alerios The Black, send the message of our great and powerful King!

Do you want me to make something warmer? Or colder? Are you Frakt?"The little sprites enthusiastically start work on trying to cobble their half-built contraptions together to make a gateway to this new plane!>>2304749They don't know how to use arcane magic in the advanced ways necessary to blend the fabrics of the two planes together, though... But they've felt lots of arcane magic flowing nearby! Whoever's playing with it might wanna trade! In short order, a huge wave of small crystals with multicolored lights is sweeping towards the land of the Fae, carrying a jolden containers of raw thaum crystal, infused thaumium, and sparking skyfire stone!>>2304912"My materials don't really contain a lot of arcane magic so much as they're just really good conductors/containers for it.

Thernax shall let her development take its own course at the moment.In the mean time though the lands of The Grand Dungeon to the North have been left silent for quite a while, and it appears the gift to it has yet to be utilized. Start to claim ments of it starting from Thernax's boarder and expanding upwards, converting it into taiga as the land is claimed in a solid wave.From the stones of the dungeon a race shall appear, a collection of golem people with natural born souls inside them.

His power appears incomparable to your own."Fuuuck... Well it's too late now. Might as well answer what I can... I'm the god of independence or some shit, who cares. Nobody is literally trying to kill me, well, at least not yet. I was just hanging in my dimension reading some prayers before your big ass portal opened.

It caves inwards, creating an entrance to a small room within. There within, the figure of a young adult woman can be seen within. She sits on the floor with her arms clenched around her knees, rocking gently. Her hair is pure white, tied up into a bun, donning navy blue robes lined in gold. Her eyes glow a similar gold, as well as a 7-sided star that glows on her forehead. Tears rush down her eyes."...Why is he so cold... Why is he so cold...

>>2306772Belweir's avatar is an oblong crystal with its eyes close to one end of its length, and no moving parts. As such he is, of course, cheerily flipped upside down to look through this hole in the base of the tree, as it's the only way his eyes can reach it without digging a hole in the ground. "Who are we talking about?" He asks obliviously. "I can make him warm, if you want!"The sprites are, of course, confused by this sudden breakdown. They start dismantling the machinery to examine it all from the inside out, while yet more sprites begin double-checking research and seeking new information for what may have failed if it wasn't on their end.
>>2306772>The scholars in the Goddess' Garden are really curious about Belweir's find.>Elis is granted a place for a workshop around 1321>The priests use their communion with hivetrees to convert the hiveforest to the magic-acculumating strain.
Rolled 9 + 31 (1d20 + 31)>>2306772Contenue converting the dungeons of The north into proper Tundra.While that is going on however it shall become apparent to Thernax that with the introduction of yet another race to his domain, he has a present need to let the mortals better fit into their settled existence.He shall make a grain plant named Barlow.Barlow is a red tinted plant very similar to wheat in that it grows in wispy stocks and can be ground into flour, however it is much more hardy, and tends to favor growing in colder regions.Take pity upon those who exist in Frakt's land. Introduce them to Barlow so they may cease eating a diet of fungus and thin rabbits.
>>2306792That isn't my land, that's like... Fire elementals or something.>>2306772Continuing the trend of their patron taking a more active role in their affairs, The Last Crusaders are gifted with the knowledge of how to consecrate their lands, making it harder for other deities to influence them. (DEF bonus)
>>2306772The Fae finally finish off THE VOICE, cheering and laughing as they do.They have a celebration, whereupon massive amounts of magic is released during all the tricks, the duels, the enchantments, the training, all converging upon one Grand Wizard, one of the first Elves ever created. He was the only one left of the so called 'First Generation'. He willingly takes all the energy, the power and simply disappears in an explosion of magic, his immense power gone.In confusion, the Fae search for him in the entirety of the Fae Lands, but fail to find even a trail.Shaking his head, The Fae King sighs and goes to sleep, disappointed at his people. In his dreams, he comes to the true Fae Lands, unending, immortal, dangerous. There, he walks. He searches for an eternity, days blending into each other as time passes.Finally, after so much time, the single largest tree the Fae King had ever seen stood tall, waiting for him to scale it. Using his powerful magic that's enhanced further by the pure, pulsing energy in the Fae Lands, he ascends with ease, as if the air actively tried to get him to rise.On one of it's tallest branches, he finds the Grand Wizard, sitting crosslegged in complete quiteness.The Fae King sits with his old friend, neither speaking, yet both achieving an inner peace, the King understanding the stakes, descending the Tree and with a snap of his fingers, awakening, his last sight of the tree's enormous roots opening to the sides, beckoning any unfortunate souls to rest within, to achieve peace with the Grand Wizard-No-The Druid.It's a new day, and it's time to get back to work.Afterlife Achieved, baby.

Rolled 1 + 7 (1d20 + 7)>>2306772Continue overtaking the watery lands of Protea! We care not for the suffering of her soul-rich people. We care not that there is little blood here. We will take the land, bring in the mortals, and FEAST upon them!
>>2304955Oh right, I forgot about this, sure, we'll trade magic for your crystals.
>>2307427The crystalbound little lightsprites hurriedly negotiate a deal, seeming rather distraught over the state of their dimensional tunnel.
>>2306772Once settled the mist, once again at peace, being to listen to the world and feel it's flow. With the constant attacks from the liches and the need to strengthen the mist, few thought had been spared for what was inside the fog.As a result, it came as a surprise to see such few souls inside. Many gods had created an afterlife.Having grown up accustomed to them, their absence left a void, not feeling the souls walk freely on the earth... And so an idea came. If souls could be drawn inside when there was no afterlife, what was to stop them for coming now? Surely it was possible to create a link to differents afterlifes and make a bridge for the souls to cross in the mist and back to their resting place.
>>2306772As Eli realizes that the realm is under the control of their demi he calls out to the war goddess of the realm. He asks what he must do to prove himself and have a way to get back to his realm.Meanwhile though the mind worms know that their leader has left alive they cannot sense his link with him. These mind worms are educated creatures able to research for Eli but in his absence they have decided to continue to strive and grow and hope for his return.They have also decided that with him gone that they will take on preferred forms, and in agreeance with one another, body morph into beings that they find pleasing to their eyes.They are capable of speech and will do their best to make decisions for Eli based on the kind of person he has shown himself to be.
If you got a bonus in OFF or DEF this turn and don't know why, we talked on discord, and it was decided Eli's trade gives +2 not +1, but it can only be done once per person.>>2306792 AgariusThe remainder of Wu-Saug's land is claimed by the demons. You may additionally attack Omnath to the west, but that isn't crusader land. I'm pretty sure those elementals don't have souls.>>2306793 Belweir(I think you misunderstood a bit here. The hole is like a 4 meter tall opening at the base of the tree, like a large doorway that caves in to show a small interior to the tree.)The woman, still crying as her arms wrap her legs, looks up to Belweir's avatar with her glowing pure yellow eyes. With a voice that echoes with untamed divine power through your mind, she says:"...Why is he so cold... Wh... Who are you? It... It's my brother... He's so cold... Why didn't it work..."As she mentions her brother, her hand reaches for the walls of this interior, touching the tree's bark.Meanwhile, the sprites cannot find any indication whatsoever in their thorough examination that the failure was on their end. All evidence points that the portal was closed on the other side.Trade made with the Fae King.>>2306794 BrrrlghhrThe scholars and priests watch with astonishment on the encounter between the young woman and Belweir. From their gathered knowledge thus far, they find there is no doubt that woman is the Goddess of Creation herself.For Eli's trade you can give him 4 hex in turn for a +2 in defense or offense. You can give him 1321, 1320, 1421, and 1322, but you'll also need to pick where you want the bonus. Trade is a free action, so don't worry about the efficiency in doing it.The hiveforest can now generate and store arcane energy.>>2306864 ThernaxThe tundra continues its dominance over the dungeon landscape. Barlow created.Thanya coming to notice the new tundra to the north and the Rancar who inhabit it, she immediately begins to explore the territory. Coming to the northern edge of the territory, Thanya enters Idanikos' realm. Her divine power immediately begins to drain, making her quickly flee back to her territory in fright. Back to safety with her power back, she begins to transform part of her realm to match the tundra. Additionally, she appears over-joyous in discovering how Jolteen reproduction works.By this point, you'd come to realize you have gained no divine power in return for Thanya's existence so far.>>2306939 Grand MasterPerhaps learning from past mistakes, the crusader lands are blessed by their demigod.>>2306971 Fae KingI like how you didn't even roll. Ultimate BM. The lands are claimed.Afterlife created; loved the writing there. Trade made with Belweir.>>2307156 DedfukThe lich enters the pod, absorbing the blight's immense power, as he becomes an Arch lich.Cont.
>>2307201 FraktThe torn spirits rise angrily, fighting back against the frost vampire's assault on their sacred lands. Assisted by their shapeless form, the spirits strike Frakt's troops as the ice begins to melt and the ocean refloods the area. The spirits actually manage to reclaim the holy sea.>>2308079 SternesA bridge is made between many demigod's afterlives, allowing souls to enter the mist when in need of pure peace, and return back at will. Any demigod may cut this bridge to their afterlife if they will it so, but as is the bridge connects all. Many more souls than before now fill the mist's lush grounds.>>2308231 EliEli's call to the goddess is unanswered."So you choose to ignore my questions then, hmmm? You seek a challenge yet ignore the very one presented before you... You're certainly an odd one, stranger..."You feel a quick push of rushing water, as a massive serpentine-shaped creature flows through the pitch black water around you.

The Demon king calms his demons down and says that the remaining crusaders will be left alone on their island since they have joined the web, as long as they pay tribute with the human souls.Though purehearted crusader souls are preferred it can be the souls of their criminals...The demons instead turn their attention to the elementals and invade them. They may not have souls but they have life force which the demons will feed on.
>>2309371What I want from Eli is technical assistance in arcane research, not a military bonus. Is this possible?In any case,>The treepeople begin a grand project: a chain of delicately woven oltar strictures along the border of their lands.Starting at the border between 1922 and 2021, it follows the edge of the hiveforest southeast then west for as far as possible, as if aiming to surround their whole realm.>The research into arcane energy storage and manipulation continues. The energy produced by the hivetrees is drained and stored in oltar towers.>In a daring move, several scholars build giant steam-powered oltar mills to try and to produce arcane energy directly from the Void.
>>2309371(I definitely misunderstood, then. On the other hand though, why wouldn't Belweir be upside down?)"I'm Belweir," the floating crystal says with a big, dopey smile in its voice, his body vibrating with the woman's words. Noticing the woman putting her hand on the tree, Belweir flips over and looks up at the prime example of megaflora. "Is this your brother?" Without waiting for an answer, he feels at the tree's surface. With his face.Back on the coast, indications that the portal to the plane of order are quickly interpreted meaning "they want us to go somewhere else first". With that, the search for alternative planes resumes.
>>2309371Those responsible for the consecration begin to preach to their fellows about the nature of their past mistakes. About how the zeal for destroying that which is impure is not enough on it's own, and of a helmed god who shall grant his blessing upon those deemed worthy...(Gain Clergy, possibly battle-clerics?)
>>2309371All the demigod going to war at each other and the whole experience with the undead makes a convincing point to the fog.If the defensive aspect will always be favored, it is time to buff up the elementals. Their weakness will stay the same : in an open environment they will be weakened a great deal. But it is time to augment their offensive capabilitiesTraining begin for them to be able to solidify part of their body to use it as blades.

The King smiles and turns to face him."Worry not, dear Arleth. Soon enough, we'll be finished."Arleth, grabs onto the horns that have attached themselves to his eyes, shaking his head."His emotions are just so strong! It-It hurts!""I know, and that is why he may come to join us."Sighing, the Fae King leads Arleth out of the room and finishes his new creation, engulfing him in magical flames near the end just for the fun of it. As before, he is taken by Alerios and Astria's Black Blades and brought to the spring of magic that created Arleth.He is thrown in and left to amass power, just like his...Brother.So, he'll wake up in 5 turns, can I ask that he gives me a +1 or +2 for his trouble?

Their. Thought. When. They. Rest."(It's a melody)The blight is something we all share, Just like oxygen, in the air. The way we live it, is up to us, With a negative or with a plus.The blight is something, we should cherish, We never know, when we'll perish. Live each and every single day, Smell the air, stop and play.The blight is something, we've been blessed, Choice is yours, choose your quest. Follow your passions, and you'll be fine, With the right attitude, you will shine.

Eli realizes that the creature holds the upper hand in water he drops a magic crystal in the water and from it a large plate of ice rises up so that he has land to walk on.He then uses this opportunity to try and capture the siren to bring her back to his plane before the portal closes, attempting to freeze her with an ice crystal bomb.
>>2309371Forgot to connect the comment so you could see it sorry. It's just above this one.
>>2295120A sizzling and crackling can be heard, first distant, then louder. Popping shots join in, slowly a whistling sound gets louder to accompany the fizzling and at last a hissing and steaming wave lifts the lid of the pyramid's upper story and - a stream of buttery yellow popcorn erupts into the crystal glimmering orbit around the strucuture!
>>2311769>>2311770Didn't OP say there was seemingly no ground above you?
>>2311977A black abyss of ocean my good friend so made some... iceland
>>2312208So, you made some land made of ice.>Entering the dimension at 2233, Eli finds himself entirely underwater. The entirety of the dimension appears to be underwater, but strangely with no visible surface. There however, is a sea floor. The environment is entirely pitch black.>No visible surfaceBy my calculations, that means you're on some ice in the middle of the water.Congrats.
>>2312226Ice is less dense than water, if gravity the ice should be moving.
>>2312226>>2312299Thank you I might have made a miscalculation but the idea was to be able to move even if straight up. I imagine even if I catch the siren though she's heavy enough that she won't float so I can get our asses back to my crib.
Eli senses the danger of the situation and how underprepared he is to take on the challenge.He uses a crystal to shoot out a large spike of ice from his hand and then quickly kicks off of it to blast through the water back through the portal, waving goodbye to the serpent creature in the water.

You'll have to talk it through with him on what you're giving, or how much hex you're giving, in trade for which tech, etc.Work on the oltar structures around the border begins. The treepeople learn to manipulate arcane energy by refining raw magical energy using their fingers as rune shapes. The scholars will need access to the void to do such; and your nor thernax's domain borders the void.>>2309748 Belweir"...It was... I created this place to bring him back... This tree was meant to hold his soul, but it may be too late... I don't know how got here, Belweir, but I appreciate you trying to help... It's too late... I was too late... I just wanted him to come back..."Touching the tree's surface, Belweir would indeed find it to be very cold.The light sprites instead find a different realm. Opening the portal oncemore to take a look. This one has a pink sky and a relaxing environment of trees with pruple leaves, seafoam colored grass, pristine clear water, and a morning mist.

She expresses that she loves your land and towers, showing you the smaller Jold ones she made in pride. She wants to make hers even better, similar to the ones you have, but for now she's working on a floating cloud where Jolteen can go to have "mating parties." She asks if you can send some Rancar to live in her tundra area.>>2310042 FraktYou reclaim Protea's afterlife, expanding even further into the north of her ocean.>>2310601 Fae KingIf he's essentially a lesser god npc, alike what Thernax has created, he won't give you any divine power bonus. However, if he's working on your side and will help in combat and such, then yeah he'll give a bonus. Should only take 3 turns, not 5, unless you want him to be particularly powerful. Regardless, the process begins.>>2310931 DedfukA portal opens from the material realm, as a collection of mortals enter the blight territory. They approach the arch lich with a kneel of respect, wishing to give their eternal devotion in trade for a small amount of divine energy. Cult formed.Cont.
>>2310985 Spider QueenThe spider forces take the mountain, formerly owned by Saytyr, in a hardfought battle. The cog airships tear through a plethora of spider forces, holding them back from taking anything further. Though they own very little land, their military is extremely powerful, armed with magnetically accelerated gattling guns and powerful airships.Peering through the veil of time, the spiderfolk learn of the Cosmos' history before their existence. The Spider Queen is the oldest of the demigods, rising to power and claiming land before any other. Immediately before her coming to existence, they see the Goddess of Creation, a young woman with short white hair and gold eyes, donning blue and gold robes. She stands in a lush forest clearing at night, besides an altar where a man lies on top. The man wears white shining armor like that of a powerful paladin, clasping his hands together on his chest to hold a long blade. He has brown hair, short horns, and pale lifeless skin. This man is clearly dead. The Goddess presses her hands against his, tears falling from her cheeks. An immense burst of divine magic pulsates from this position, spreading in all directions as the environment appears to change from forest to void. Where the goddess was, a field of glowing flowers can be seen beneath a massive tree.>>2311968 Surrealistyou've practically already won>>2312574 Eli>>2312600>>2312668The second Eli fires his ice spike to launch towards the portal, the rush of water grows to an immense speed. The sides of the creature glow red with fiery, illuminating its shape. The gargantuan being has a body like that of an eel, with a head that opens in 4 flaps with thousands of teeth lining the inside of its mouth. It's head rushes fowards with the speed of lightning, catching its teeth on Eli's legs, pulling him back into the dark depths as the portal closes, before tossing him to the side. Eli's legs bleed profusely."You wish to leave before upholding your side of the conversation, hmmm? I think not. I taste just a sliver of divinity in your blood, though I know not of any divine creatures to your kind... If you come for a challenge, then I recommend not running from the one I've granted you.

I'm gonna be all proud because they're setting up in a land Thayna made all by herself.While The Rancar are brought into existence from the recent conquests it's usually not a given that they're born worshiping and knowing Thernax's existence. To remedy this The mortals of Thernax's Domain shall start to adopt the practice of traveling into new lands and converting the populace to The Will of Thernax.[Invent Missionaries]

After making the modifications the arch lich will be able to control the portal and even use it as a one way mirror.With the mirror the arch lich tries to loacte an individual that can greatly impact the blight and undead.(Where the fuck you at Eli, I finally got around wanting your shop kek)
>>2313143>>2313144>>2313291>>2312226>>2311688[Thernax is joining the Web, everyone! Welcome him with open arms!]Santiago, as The First Vampire, was the undisputed Ruler of his frozen lands. For ages, since their inception, things has been as they always had been. Sure, a little border scuffle with the adorable tin men here, a surprise alliance with the demons, spiders, and many others, there. At some point, Santiago had witnessed half of his land be swallowed by mist! But still, life went on. The Vampires fed, and the Mortals did not.That is, until now. Barlow, they called it, and it grew with an efficacy that bordered the Divine. Santiago pondered it's source, swirling a crimson drink around a fine crystal glass. Of course, he knew WHERE it had come from. The question was WHY. Why would the Thernixin realms "gift" such a thing to his Xioni? It hadn't been an accident, not when Thernixin's themselves presented to crop to some destitute pair of orc and human, teaching them to reap and sow, to grind into bread and bake.It had spread like ice over water, like his lands did to the Sea of Protea.Well, there were no answers here. Santiago had never left Xioni before. But times were changing... he could feel it in his fangs. With a careless toss of his drink, he bade his loyal attendants, each a powerful Vampire in their own right, to take wing and journey with him. Soon, he would be on the borders of the Thernixon Domain, and be taken to their leader. There, he and his attendants would thank them for their kind contributions, and offer a seat at the next meeting of the Frostfire Web.Frakt, meanwhile, was ecstatic. A fellow god who desired to feast upon the Goddesses! A great ally, for sure!
>>2313950Thernax shall in his time sculpting The Tundra of The North, accept the call of invitation to join The Web. Upon the more mortal side of things, the invitation shall be taken in by the likes of The High Sultar, an old and small Jolteen priest that has been elected to his position as head of The Thernax Faith due to vote by The Sultar Minors who guide the church under him. They take care to shake hands on the agreement, and even as The Domain of Thernax may be divided into many kingdoms, their uniting power, The Church, has said this agreement is so, and in that it is law.[Thernax Accepts Invitation to The Web]
>>2313070"I can go look for his soul if you want!" The dopey crystal offers, slowly rotating end over end as he talks. "Where did you see it last?
