Last post here: >>2695108Another session of Caster Quest begins today! Everyone's favorite underage, teenage, necromancer quest! Last episode we really got ourselves in and out of some pickles- bug flavored, demon shaped, pickles as Catherine seems to have found a mate to breed with her and produce a whole swarm of insectoid-themed Demons that swarm the GothWood/RotWood. These nefarious nedroids have been terrorizing the woodland inhabitants of the haunted forest and you made it your business of helping, healing, and getting into the good favor of their various tribes peoples. While you were in there, though, you discovered something of singular importance: an old Gnomish Town (perhaps the capital of this province some time ago) situated on a golden, gleaming, mana spring- a Ley Line as they're called by academics and a potential invaluable resource to you AND Catherine if she finds it.. Your information is here: Your current inventory & lair information: https://pastebin.com/3xnHBDVs https://pastebin.com/xnLhuuRfYour current spellbook & undead list: https://pastebin.com/tJNzGa4e https://pastebin.com/3W9U0fbG Your crafting & dungeon info: https://pastebin.com/azDS5QV5 https://pastebin.com/pXTrGXVKYour visuals! Your spellbook's art has been updated (getting pretty beefy!): http://spaghettiart.tumblr.com/image/175103241507 http://spaghettiart.tumblr.com/image/175381412382Our adventures though have taken us back home to the pleasant meadows of Honey Hill and our well off farm estate in Potter's Field- Eldin's Grove a sentry over your territory.... Well it wasn't a GOOD sentry as the tree has failed to warn you of all these.. these.. Changelings, these DOPPLERS: moving into the ruins, not paying taxes, wanting to FARM and have LIVELIHOODS. The nerve of some people. Accepting new actions.
>>2708709Also I updated the Map! Finally! Look at how different it is!
Rolled 66 (1d100)>>2708709Get a skeleton and inset Green shards into the eye sockets to see what will happen.
Rolled 19 (1d20)>>2708709Let's get these squatters turned into residents.Have Eloy and Avarice help us gather them together and set up rules and a light tax of food and resources of whatever they'll be producing here.Start the Golems/Undead working with the Changelings to fix up the village for some proper homes and future businessesWondering if we should get Lady Cheval or the Emir of En to help with establishing our little village
>>2708722>Start the Golems/Undead working with the Changelings to fix up the village for some proper homes and future businessesWe have a fuck ton of raw dug up material. Do you think we need a furnace for the Goblins?>>2708709Spaghetti do we need a furnace?>Wondering if we should get Lady Cheval or the Emir of En to help with establishing our little villageI think we should go to Emir of En for advice. Since he himself is a changeling, and our citizens are changelings.
>>2708729Damn, yeah we're still lacking a proper furnace or kiln for brickmakingand yeah, asking the Emir for advice would probably be useful since they're building up Hemlock Village again and that could strengthen our friendship/gain aid from the Changeling villagesDespite our childish racism of them lol
>>2708729>Spaghetti do we need a furnace?The closest thing we have is two large ovens in the kitchen: one rather large one for baking, one (with several stop tops) for cookery stuff.
>>2708737We still have yet to provide raw assistance in the rebuilding of Hemlock though. Should we help? How should we? Would they want the help? The big questions.Think they would like some scarecrows?>>2708746Ok. We need to visit or send someone with money to guy buy us some furnaces, kilns and brickmakings. Preferably Avarice, a gobby, or someone smarter than us. Maybe we can Send DM with some Gnolls to negotiate those?
Rolled 4 (1d20)>>2708709>Enslave the changelings and use them for cheap labor like garden maintenance.
>>2708746Last thread I asked which was stronger, a Vegimite or Scarecrow?
>>2708756dude no plz why
>>2708756Vetoing>>2708752We could provide Golems (Ice and bone) for manual labor and give them some scarecrows too
>>2708772Ice Bonemeal golems (unlessed wrapped heavily in enchanted cloth) might give off the wrong message and might freak out new immigrants, travelers, and the citizens of En/Hemlock themselves. There is also the issue of leaking Miasma making everything one nervous and killing any plants within close proximity. Do you remember if Ice Bonemeal golems we more resistant to melting compared to their pure Ice Elemental counterparts?We you referring to the Bone skeletons and Ice golems as separetly, or the Ice Bonemeal golems?I was going to suggest the Mud Compost golems as they're less scary looking, like the one we make for the Bee Women, but I'm not sure if it would listen to us or the Changeling Towns folks. Scarecrows are definitely the safest bet. Down side is they make poor fighters (unless we modify the shit out of their design).
>>2708722>Let's get these squatters turned into residents.>Roll 19- Near perfect cooperation and residency. You've got a lot of people to manage here and only the deed to these ruins to command any real authority: the good news is that seems to be enough for these people (something you find a little frankly bizarre since it isn't inherently magical.. It's.. just a piece of paper with a stamp.) The sun is out so Eloy can't really be of much help, but you get Annie, The Twins, and put some fucking clothes on Avarice before you let him out and a meeting of the minds takes place. You decide the following:-10% tax rate on all agricultural goods, 5% tax rate on any business or commercial shenanigans. -In exchange, though, you're obligated to protect these people from the various dangers of the world. Construction will be aided by Snow Golems in shifts whom the normies don't find too offensive. -The Dungeon is at the moment off limits. >170/175 decide to stay. 100% of them are Changelings. >>2708756>Enslave the changelings and use them for cheap labor like garden maintenance.>roll 4- Naw, also no character precedence. While this is -your- land and Changelings are often characterized as thieves, gyspies, and migrants not to be trusted.. You think for the time being with no blatant racial tension that they should be fine: they're 'all' Dopplers, so you hope they won't have cause for racism or public decent. Plus, Changelings just make poor slaves. This is what the Goblins are for. >>2708729>I think we should go to Emir of En for advice.You think about who could make help you with all these no-good immigrants: En of Emir seems like the obvious choice since he's the same species, Cheval might be able to help- but you have a feeling her advice would be more... "Royal". Archie may be of assistance, but he's a Homunculi and they're like Ants, so it'd be socially ignorant advice. Same with Bee Mom. Accepting new Actions.
>>2708772Actually, maybe giving Enlock some Golems to use isn't such a bad idea. They could stay in basements to keep cool until needed, and can double as large freezers.
Rolled 16 (1d20)>>2708813Who were the other 5 that left?Let's go to En and find Emir. Then square off how they're gonna rebuild Hemlock, what materials will be used, when, how long they expect it to take.
Rolled 8 (1d20)>>2708813Purchase a proper kiln and furnace, either from the Homunculus or Pug, along with any other building equipment we may need
>>2708828The Commune #9 would make the shortest route.
Before I forget, I wonder what would happen if we were to introduce to soil sample to some of the front saplings.
Rolled 12 (1d20)>>2708813Abuse your position as town ruler and pass a law declaring you are the husband of all the changeling women.
>>2708877Why do you do this
>>2708877Haha no, veto this shit
>>2708880OP usually finds a way to have Caster attempt it, but fail humorously.Plus someone needs to represent our evil side.
>>2708907I don't follow. How does attempting to enslave or change the changeling's genders repress the evil side? There is no even anymore. Only progress.
>>2708824>Who were the other 5 that left?Five of the Changelings left simply on the basis that they didn't want to pay even the smallest amount of tax on anything. You're not really offended, you completely understand the sentiment: you move out to the middle of nowhere and even here there's some random guy asking for taxes. >>2708824>Then square off how they're gonna rebuild Hemlock, what materials will be used, when, how long they expect it to take.>Roll 16- Good, high end good.With the mud, clay, stone, and dried straw already around the Potter's Field ruins from your Dungeon expanding and digging itself out there's already an excess of fresh resources ripe for the taking and building. It isn't like people were asking or demanding your assistance, they're perfectly capable of patting down some mud, baking bricks, and refurbishing the frames and buildings already collecting dust. Overall it'll take maybe a Month to see everyone in homes- seeding and planting their fields will take longer. -You do, though, briefly pay a visit to En. Emir though doesn't know who those Changelings are, but he does say, "Word has been coming from out of Copse that they dead are staying Dead now and you must know how Changelings are: always looking for vacant land." It's true, they are natural squatters. You keep that to yourself though- Emir's a good man.>>2708828>Purchase a proper kiln and furnace, either from the Homunculus or Pug>Roll 8- Bad, but you've got friends.Moe is happy to oblige and a few women show up later in the week in a cart with bricks and tools. >A Smith is being added to your tiny village. You're not a lord, so you just have to 'eyeball' your growing town. When asked about who might be able to operate the smith a few Changelings raise their hands- nothing obviously dramatic or supernatural, but they'll be able to pound out posts, nails, horseshoes, maintain armor and weapons."I know how to smith." Avarice idly admits one evening. "I mean, I'm not on the level of a Cyclopes or a Dwarf.. Or even a Gnome, but I'm sure as shit better than an Orc." He's more of a Goldsmith or Jeweler which comes at no shock. >>2708877>Abuse your position as town ruler and pass a law declaring you are the husband of all the changeling women.You say this as someone who's put their cock in the living dead: Changeling Women are kind of unattractive. Their eyes are weird, their skin is clammy and doesn't feel right, and their blood is black so their veins and genitals have this unsettling black almost ichorus tinge to them you find really unsettling. The thought crosses your mind, sure, but today it's a no. They just don't appeal to you- your perversion can only go so far. I mean, it could be worse: they could be Orcs... or Dwarves. Accepting new actions.
Rolled 90 (1d100)>>2708922Emir is settled, we're slowly building up our own village, Hemlock doesn't really need our help but they're not against it.Can we do the research thing? Do I have to roll again? >>2708718
>>2708922They're changelings and they can't even change into something attractive? Useless.Build a big fence around your property so those evolutionary rejects can't offend you with their presence.
>>2708951No need. The sunflower and paranormal pumpkim wall is up.
>>2708956Then we need the fence to protect our sunflowers and pumpkins from these shameless thieves and liars.
>>2708880>>2708907>>2708951>>2708964It is unironically fine that someone suggests the bad/evil thing to do. It doesn't mean I'm gonna 100% do them, but Caster is mortal and flawed after all.Plus sometimes it helps.
>>2708964A fence isn't that great of a deterent.Now if we make more Scarecrows armed with wheat scythes and crop sickles, then we're redirect talking.MAGIC BONE POWERED CHAINSAWS! Really small (ice)bone golems whose only purpose is to spin really fast when commanded.
>>2708971Yeah but fences don't take up space in our limited undead control slots. They also don't threaten even our hardy crops with a miasma overload. Pretty sure even pumpkins can only handle so much before succumbing.
>>2708976Scarecrows aren't undead. They're golems. Golems don't take up slots. The Scarecrows were made as an alternative to undead farm workers. Right?
>>2708982I've honestly never paid much attention to the mechanics, but golems not taking up slots seems wrong. I thought we made that huge ice tank and it took ten slots.
>>2708986The icebone golem shaped like an elephant became haunted by a Mammoth spirit creating the Mammoth Wraiths.Technically I see it as us dominating the Wraith that is possessing the "golem"
>>2708986You're thinking of something else.Golems, unlike zombies which take up slots, are stupid. They can only take basic commands. Hence why only one slot.The Ice Bonemeal golems are an amalgamation of undead and ice elementals. They can be swapped between finer control (take up a slot and they smurt) or act as golems (no slots but dumbo)You're confusing the ten slots with the giant 18ft gnolls and the ice Bonemeal mammoth.
Rolled 12 (1d20)>>2708922Contact Chevals Oracle and radio Archie and inquire when they plan to invade Lady Catherine's territory. We've got that new info about her insect-knights and already poisoned her Mosquito Knight (who might already be recovered with the passage of time since then)
>>2708990*Hence why only one slotHence why no slot for golems. Where as zombies or skeletons can be commanded directly or telepathically, at the cost of one control slot.
>>2708993We also have information about all the other Knights. Besides the mosquito and the fly, I think there were two or for more. One of which was a beetle which I assumed is tanky.
Rolled 37 (1d100)>>2708922Finally reanimate our preserved and prepared Troll corpse into a Zombie.This is the one we hunted with Butcher on our first "date" and is like 18ft tall if I remember right
>>2709005Why are we animating it again? We gonna modify it?
Rolled 1 (1d20)>>2708989>>2708990>>2708998Alright if that's the case I'm down to ramp up golem production.I still want a fence though, it's the symbolism. Also I never rolled so here it is.
Rolled 24 (1d100)>>2708922Plan out a large and especially intelligent Ice golem, using a large dark crystal carved into a crystal skull and annointed with our blood.
>>2709012>crystal inside a crystallol wut? I have reservations about this but I want to see what will happen with that roll.
>>2709005damnit>>2709008Just in case we have to go against Catherine's forces soon. The Troll Zombie will probably be our heavy hitter besides Mammoth or (uncontrolled) Wickerman we aim and release at them
>>2709012>>2709015Why'd you roll twice? The second roll was worse.>>2709017The problem with the Golem, at least from what I can see. It's a huge slow lumbering target for the fast mosquito knight. The only saving grace is if it can wear as much armor as it can possibly carry, and that it acts like a meat shield.
Rolled 8 (1d100)>>2708922research how to build rotwormneed that good shit
>>2709010Welp, looks like we're getting kidnapped or going comatose again
>>2709031Would could always build a too scale Wry or dragon using our notesand ice Bonemeal, then dominate it's wraith.
>>2709021Phone posting, said it didn't go through the first time even though it did. Deleted the second one when I noticed.
>>2709046happened to me last thread too
>>2709045*we couldI need coffee. Iced coffee. Too fucking hot.>>2709046*nods*
>>2708944>Can we do the research thing? Do I have to roll again? >>2708718>Roll 90- is far better than your previous 60.Things have calmed down: the people are busy working, toiling, doing peasantry towny things... Which means you have time to EXPERIMENT. Specifically, you've got a handful of Green Mana Shards and you'd like to find out what would happen if you polished them and placed them in the eye sockets of a skeleton. Good news and bad news. -The Bad news is the Skeleton doesn't reanimate so much as it begins growing and sprouting irritable and toxic fungal growth that spreads out from it's eye sockets and blankets the entire skeleton giving it a very skinny, horrifying, body that does animates and proceeds to drag itself around spreading toxic spores everywhere.-The Good news is you manage to kill it, nobody gets sick, and Avarice helps you sanitize the labratory and the basement of it's corrupting spores. That was also genuinely quite interesting. >>2709010>>2708951>Build a big fence around your property so those evolutionary rejects can't offend you with their presence.>Roll 1. A day later or so you figure you need to keep up appearance and what better way than to build a racially segregated fence around your property to keep the normies out. The fence you build is so unequivocally shit that you stop before anybody sees you were responsible for such a mess and run home to go hide. The fence doesn't get finished and whenever somebody asks about it you feign ignorance- eventually it's just removed by the staff after a week.>>2709012>Plan out a large and especially intelligent Ice golem, using a large dark crystal carved into a crystal skull and annointed with our blood.>Roll 24- Not good, but not horrible. Looking at your Ice Golems: they're big dummies, but you figure you could make their intelligence more serviceable if you could perhaps do the following:-Carve out a Crystal Skull of bonemeal, blood, all frozen together. -Place Dark Mana Shards in it's eyes, and one large one inside it's skull case and several across the chest, arms, and legs. It'd cost a lot of resources and you wonder if it would be perhaps 'too' smart, but it'd definitely by dangerous and >interesting. Accepting new Actions. Thanks for waiting.
Rolled 68 (1d100)>>2709055Develop ice Bonemeal golems combined with endothermic fire or a wisp so it doesn't melt due to friction to act as the motor for a chainsaw. I wanna arm our gnolls and Scarecrows with deadly gardening tools. Like I sort of said in this post. >>2708971
Rolled 37 (1d100)>>2709055Reanimate our prepared Troll into a Zombie
Rolled 18 (1d100)>>2709055research skull sentrieslike magical cctv skulls for "security"
Feeding the ice forest with a mixture of Bonemeal, dark crystal shards and a little bit of the ley line soil sample might help stimulate the dungeons growth and possibly the dark shards it produces as well.
>>2709055ask allies about plans against Catherine
>>2709078....but Anon we already have those.Oh you mean like cameras.
Rolled 9 (1d20)>>2709055meet with allies to plan an attack against Catherine
Rolled 64 (1d100)>>2709005>>2709076....I rolled 37 twice for the same attempt, wtf>>2709078Rolling to support, I think using haunted gnome skulls prepared the same way as Skeleton Mages.Hopefully it would make something like mobile, semi-intelligent flying skulls we could potentially seance and see through their gem eyes.
Rolled 12 (1d20)>>2709078Maybe if we using flying Mage Skulls, and create some kind of telepathy spells that could allow us to see through the eyes of others?That way if a Sentry skull sees something it can ping up and give us a visual of what they see?>>2709055Let's make a Super Weenie Hut Jr's. Dungeon made of vegimite. We can seed it with some of those screamers or what you call them.
>>2709086yeah maybe an alarm system if any unwanted guest passes our territory
>>2709103If it's just an alarm system you want then the Skulls can be set to SCREAM! The problem is hoe do you keep them animated during the day since sunlight kills miasma.
>>2709111they can wear hats for that or maybe incased in ice or in a pumpkin???
Rolled 48 (1d100)>>2709055Gather resources for that smart ice golem. See if we can find a nice brain like we did for the flesh golems and see if we can find a way to imprint it's latent mental traits into the crystal in its head.
>>2709122>a skull in a pumpkinYou a mad lad. I think the skull might Rot the pumpkin due to the potency of the Dark shards. It might be worth trying to work out a means to make the 'skull in pumpkin idea's by figuring out the rate of pumpkin miasma Absorbtion and the potency of miasma per gram.Gotta find a sweet spot so the pumpkin doesn't Rot and the skull doesn't go inert.
>>2709146now am starting to think about reanimating shrunken heads to keep an eye out on our territoryall this skull shittery is making my head hurt
>>2709055>that fence updatethank you OP
>>2709078>>2709094>Surveillance Skulls. >Roll 64, 18- Good, bad, but you've already got everything you need.Haunted Skulls can be used for surveillance. ( https://pastebin.com/3W9U0fbG )You didn't know this because you don't really use them that often, but you pricked your thumb on a pen quill one night and got a little bit of your blood on one of the many skulls you have littering your study... And... Quickly found out that you could 'vaguely' see through it's eyes. You can't hear, smell, or talk through it though.Haunted Skulls are just skulls puppeteered by a Wisp, so they 'can' sort of remain outside during the day (hidden inside the skull). Seems if the blood washes off or gets flaked off it doesn't work anymore though. >>2709124>Gather resources for that smart ice golem.>Roll 48- Low Average, Technically a 20 roll, but I'll give it to you.You're going to need Shards and a skull. Big shards, big skull, so you're going into the Snow Cavern to look for resources. While there's lots of Miasmatic Shards naturally occurring in the crystalline icey caverns.. It takes you some time to find a large enough one that's suitable and even then you need to bring it back completely covered so it does melt or shatter when exposed to light. Avarice gets to work cutting and polishing it to make it more effective- jagged, rough, Mana Shards have a tendency to do whatever they want. The skull, though, is the hard part. Big skull, you need a big skull for a big brain... A Troll skull might do or an Elephant: you have Trolls in this dungeon, but none of them are big enough and there are sadly no (living) Elephants in your Dungeon- yet. >>2709102>>2709082>Experiment with Dungeon soil, mana, doo-hickery n' screaming.>Roll 12- Above Average, also technically a d100, but I'll average it out.While you're down here... You'd like to know how some of that Mana and the Soil samples you took take to your Frosty Dungeon. You mix up a little batch (you've only got so much, so you're very frugal with it) and start spreading it around in different places.-The samples dramatically encourage wild, vivid, beautiful ice crystalline growth. The mana doesn't burn or 'cleanse' the environment: it feeds and enables it's already thematic identity. -The Trees at the lowest level particularly enjoy it: growing, thickening, twisting, some even flowering and growing fruit. -A lot of it is eaten by Fairies.. They're willing to sift and dig through the mud to get at the golden, sweet, mana those little jerks. They remind you of humming birds or how you sometimes see Butterflies crowd around a clay lick after it rains... Except, you know: they're naked little 7 inch boys n' girls with bug wings. Accepting actions.
Rolled 30 (1d100)>>2709180Modify the Coat of many Skeletons by adding dark shards to the eye sockets to effectively turn them onto skeleton mages, then give them knives.The Coat of Many Knife wielding & Spell casting Skeletons.
Rolled 12 (1d20)>>2709180Contact Lady Cheval and Archie, discuss the battleplans against Catherine.We really need to focus on that
>>2709192Last I can remember Archie was going to fortify the Commune and let Catherine attack first to judge her current strength. At least that was what he was originally going to do. With the new information of her creating demons this might change things for everyone. Hmmm.Moe and Archie will reall reall REALLY want a ton of Cold Iron weapons, because Cold Iron hurts super natural beings such as demons.Can you smell the money?Speaking of Catherine and her evil deeds.....Do you guys remember that Supernatural lady with the bag of holding? Could she have a hand in this business? She was making her way to the Goth Tree.
Rolled 29 (1d100)>>2709180Make a skeleton with a shitton of dark mana crystals imbued onto it, like everything you have.See if it can spin its arms fast enough to achieve vertical lift.
Rolled 18 (1d20)>>2709180Seance the odity collector and ask her to keep an eye out for a cyclope skull for us.
>>2709215We could even invite the Occultist to visit. I'm sure she'd have plenty of oddities to trade for stuff from the Dungeon
Rolled 95 (1d100)>>2709180mix haunted skull with the control enhancer skullenchant it to reanimate nearby corpse and scream or explode if any trespasser comes into its vicinity. Include the twins in the reseach, we may learn their affinity with this
>>2709253Seems counter productive to leave the mage skulls out in the open, but nice roll.
>>2709253We should have the Twins try reanimating their first skeletons or zombies sometime
>>2709261maybe sentry mages i guess
>>2709270Yeah. Might as well give them the full bodies to maximize effectiveness. I think we should fine tune the Mage Skeletons so they can work slightly autonomous to us but not go on a rampage, in the event we lose connection to our magic agian. Maybe imbue them with a little bit of our own personality.
>>2709274Hopefully with the Twins learning Necromancy as our apprentices they might be able to help share the load or act as back-ups should we ever get severed from our magic again
>>2709205>>2709190>Roll 29, 30- This is kind of the same action and the same problem. >The same very spooky problem.You've got that Coat of Many Skeletons and you've got a lot of Dark Mana Crystals, like, just an absolute shit ton. So you throw them all together rather haphazardly, well, less so than before (you do it in the basement): shards are added to their eyes, added to their chests, you even replace some of their teeth with shards- Avarice thinks it's a bad idea, but he thinks making polished crystal teeth is fun. While this new Wicker Man is far more unsettling, more violent, and more powerful than the last one- you're also significantly more powerful than you once were and at the very least pass your fear checks. It still, though, simply can't be control. You're not sure why. You lock yourself in the room, stuff your robe in the door's gaps and gas the whole chamber by exhaling a particularly pungent, horrible, paint-peeling, Death Coil that melts the horrid, shrieking, creation before it can escape and run rampant. Speaking of repugnant, rampant, horrors. >>2709192>Contact Lady Cheval and Archie, discuss the battleplans against Catherine.>Roll 12- Good, above average. Annie runs you a nice bath and washes your robes: the encounter leaves you coated in a thin smear of grease that needs to be washed off. Once you're done done with that and all cozy, snug, dressed in your casual wear.. You Seance your allies to see if there's any new developments with the Catherine front.-Mimas is on the other line this time, seems they don't need to screen their calls as much as they used to. Mimas quickly catches you up to speed: he's been reanimating the various bodies (goblin, troll, hogoblin, orcs, changelings) he's been having his peons dig up out of Tollund Bog. This wasn't originally the plan, but Catherine's spawn required.. "A change in plan, no? Don't even ask me about the first attack- a complete bust. What a waste, and no doubt her children grew fat from all of my skewered pigs." You didn't know Mimas knew Necromancy. That's neat.-Archie responds to your Seance in a rather terse and blunt fashion, "He has a Warlock. Catherine isn't an Omnibus, so he can't asexually reproduce. The only plausible explanation is he's either recently kidnapped a mortal to aid in the recent events or he's been grooming one for a while and we're suffering poor timing." He goes on to admit the groomed option may be more likely given Catherine's previous efforts to expunge and exterminate every Warlock within the province- as why would she purposefully keep any Caster that could dominate or even worse- banish her. Little 2nd post coming up.
>>2709287>>2709215>Seance the odity collector and ask her to keep an eye out for a cyclope skull for us.>Roll 18/20While you're at it you sort through your things and grab a lock of the Occultists black hair before giving them a telepathic ring up. Her internal monologue is incredibly difficult to keep track of- she's a very compulsive, spastic, Human being. "Hello! Hello! Yes, yes! Me? I'm fine! I'm finally back in the province: I went out over to Lake Scholomance for souvenirs- I couldn't get into Cannakill or Cockaigne like I wanted to, border security was too thick. Problems with fey they said! Too many fey migrants!" She carries on like this, but basically lets you know she'll be heading over soon to pay with a visit: with a fully stocked inventory from the heart of the haunted lands.. Well, close to the heart.. The throat of the haunted lands. Accepting new Actions.
Rolled 54 (1d100)>>2709296I want to Give the Coat of a Wicker Man one more shot, but more carefully. This time we will be making use of the elemental shackles to keep it subdued. First we'll drop control of the wraith mammoth to let it seed as it pleases, drop the Rot Hide Gnoll Count to 2, and make more Control Mage skulls. Like one or two more. Then we'll try this again but with the Shackles on it's wrists. At that point it's only a matter of wrestling it into submission until it submits.
Rolled 10 (1d100)>>2709296Chat with Mimas about building some Tower Golems for their use and other potentially useful golems to supplement his undead army.Rolling to attempt reanimating the preserved troll again this time with the help of Chemmy and the Twins, I want our bruiser

But, that's a good idea and will save you a lot of trouble down the road- releasing all your mistakes or Undead you don't want anymore into the woods to piss off Catherine. Wasteful though, but 'good'.))
>>2709314Dude the Troll would be useless m8. Big slow meat shield. We just don't have the techniques and spells yet to make it the effective siege engine for this scenario.>>2709315wrong dice anon.If we let it loose they'll probably destroy it just as easy as the Orcs.>used life crystals to animate that fungus skeleton.Those aren't Life crystals. Those are Green shards. They're related to plant stuff and rot.>Maybe try to do something like that with Ice crystals from the dungeon? Make a frosty skeleton?What are you talking about> Do you mean the dark crystals? Do you mean An Ice Bonemeal Skeleton golem?>>2709319>Dude, whatWhat? What'd a do?>>2709322Gnome mage skeletons are pretty great. 10 spells or higher potency.
>>2709326we should definitely contact Mimas and discuss him sending us any corpses that are too damaged for him to use for us to cobble together multiple Wickermen to let loose
>>2709330Oh heck yeah. And we'll arm them with Endothermic flame golem chainsaws.
>>2709329Useless in the larger war maybe, not useless as our personal bodyguard and defense for our Lair.Once I get the Troll reanimated (NEVER GONNA HAPPEN) I want to try making that Rotwyrm or reanimating the Cockatrice into a Frosty Undead mount
>>2709336Hmmmm. Maybe if we make it into a giant, TWENTY FOOT titan of a Ice Bonemeal Golem Troll and make it so it doesn't melt from normal heat. That way we don't have to control points on it. And maybe after so cosmetic changes to make it less ugly. I'll support your roll after I figure out the blasted Wicker Coat thing. And the black blood research our other half made to make that troll resistant to the sun.>I want to try making that Rotwyrm or reanimating the Cockatrice into a Frosty Undead mountSo find or make a Rotwyrm?Wait...Maybe the component to make undead resistant is changeling blood?
Rolled 12 (1d100)>>2709296Practice our enchanting. Frost enchant a weapon, maybe one made with Frost Brand just to see if it works.
>>2709349We already have that one, it requires crushing a miasma shard and dusting the weapon or armor to create a Frostbrand or Ice enchanted armor>>2709346we're ONE piece short of our Endgame Perfect Robe, I think using our time on the wickerman coat is just a tangent
>>2709349Are you attempting to stack a frost enchantment over an existing one? I wonder if that would would. Perhaps it would be possible to strengthen an already existing enchantment rather than stack the same kind.>Coat of many Skeletons: "You made this coat as an experiment in your crafting skills: a shawl of wiry black Garm fur, mixed with shadow, it has a collar of skulls and numerous skeletons line the outside- grasping at things that offend you." It's pretty neat we can imbue objects with the other parts of necromancy such as dark, possibly rot and spirit too?
>>2709361The missing piece could probably be found within our dungeon, maybe off of the 'not hydra' monster. If you want I'll either support the troll or searching the cave for the last piece in the next update.
>>2709361We haven't actually enchanted a weapon yet. Frost Brand creates an item made of ice that doesn't melt as long as we hold it. I was seeing if we could create permanent ice objects like the Ras Treates.
>>2709377We've actually enchanted things already. The Gnolls cloth for example. They were able to adjust their temperature so they didn't Rot further I think.
>>2709253>>2709322>Figure out what the Twins can and cannot do- magic wise.>Roll 95- Meeting you in the middle in terms of most constructive since this is a really good roll. It's been maybe a month or so- "It has been 46 days, Father" - since the Twins intelligence has kind of leveled out and peeked. That isn't to say they won't become 'more' intelligence, it just means their brains have successfully reconnected and contextualized their bodies muscle memory, so they're back to pre-death int scores. Time to see how magic they are. -F1 and F2 both have a strong affinity for Shadow(Pit) and Spirit Necromancy; it's a shame you know so little because they take to it quite well. They're serviceable at Rot and completely oblivious to Frost. -Each of them has a maximum Undead Control of 15 Undead, so combined it's 30. -This is also just a personal observation, but the way they cast is very sharp, impersonal, and 'clean'. A wrist flick or a snap of the fingers. You have a tendency to really exaggerate your movements and throw your body into the motion- wasteful, but very beautiful and powerful motions.>>2709315>Maybe try to do something like that with Ice crystals from the dungeon? Make a frosty skeleton?>Roll 17/20- Still, a d100 was needed, but 17's are lucky and input is input.This next experiment isn't maybe as Interesting as the last one, but it does at least answer some questions. Digging up a Frosty Mana Shard- you polish it, clean it up, then engemmen a skeleton with it to see what'll happen. The body rattles, fumes, and an ethereal cold mist starts billowin- Okay now it's screaming. It's a Wraith. It's an Ice Wraith. You make sure you veil is on snug and slap the shards out of the skeleton- a very small handkerchief sized scrap of Ectoplasm falls to the ground. Neat. >>2709349>Frost enchant a weapon, maybe one made with Frost Brand just to see if it works.>Roll 12- Bad, bad. Bad. Double the frost, double the frostburn. Though, in fairness: before you froze your hands and feet (don't ask) you were pretty sure that stacking Frost Enchantments may very well be the key to making permanent Frosty Items.. They're just so cold! You're just going to need more practice. While Annie, Avarice, and Chemmy fix your hands and feet- you think you could be doing a bit more with Frost... But you've read everything Ras has to offer, no offense Old Man. Accepting new Actions.
>>2709385That one bit of leather armor is all we've enchanted and made it always cool to the touch and impossible to melt. I want to know if it'll act differently for a weapon. Also, practice makes perfect.

>>2709408>Can we tinker with the Ray of Infirmity spell a bit? Maybe come up with an Aura of Infirmity version?>Roll 31- Bad, but not horrible. The Ray of Infirmity is a pretty interesting spell, fun too: it allows you to blast this sweeping gaze of negative-energy that withers away whatever you focus your sight on into infirmity.. But for the sake of research you're going at a quarter strength. Which is good because this spell is powerful and you have very little control over it: you kill some grass on the lawn, you accidentally blast Avarice (who has to go lay down and suck on some change), and even look at your own hands- which luckily doesn't effect you. To change the nature of the spell though.. You'd have to better understand Scholomance's School of Necromancy. >>2709424>>2709421>>2709419>Enroll F1 and F1 into Abel (of the Rot) and Adrienne (of the Pit) Clerical School!>Roll 3, 15, 7- Bad, good, luckyyy. Rolling at advantage.You've nothing left to teach the Twins as you're on your own journey of discovery yourself, so you send word to the Priests back in Pug if Adrienne or Abel would be willing to tutor your Twins in the art of Shadow or Rot.. Because why not? Y'know? They'll come back and teach you a thing or three. About mid way through the week once they've had their few personal effects packed Mimas shows up in a carriage under cover of darkness, clouds, accompanied by skeletal horses and a few servants- both puppetted and actual Undead. You could have just flown them there, sure, but the Chevals like showing off. >Mimas while he is here also takes off your hands a few Ice Golems- oh which his handsome, blonde, self is quite thankful.

>>2709529>>2709535>>2709536>>2709542>>2709543It's just a mixture of her having a lot of junk you don't entirely recognize as valuable or necessarily need and you maybe not wording everything as best as you could because Occultist is kind of in that mid 30's single-childless kind of age bracket that you're really interested, she's quite frankly stacked, and is the same species as you. So, yeah, issues. You ask for a unique last piece of her robe, ask something to make your 'staff' badass, you ask her if she's got any "unique creature parts", maybe a large bone. She's thankfully too socially oblivious though, so all of these slips of the dick seem to be flying over her head- you're getting progressively nervous though and socially awkward (such is what happens after concencutive failed charm rolls) as you spill more and more knuckle bones.>>2709594>>2709552>Rolled 69 (1d100)>Rolling to buy her used panties>Roll 99- She just fuckin' gives um to you.You make a sharp, flirty quip to save face that if she doesn't have anything to offer you'll settle for her panties."Oh, do you just want to fuck? We can fuck, that's fine. Are you a virgin? Have you had sex with a Woman before? A Human Woman? Boys don't count! It's okay if you haven't- " I mean, you're not gonna say no but what about protectio- "Brand of sexual protection." What's that now? She slips out of her robe, everything on her fat, heavy, pale and heaving comes swaying and bouncing right out and turning and pointing her black nails down to the space below her navel she shows you off an almost out-of-character womb-tramp stamp, "Brand of sexual protection. Got it tattooed on by a Nymph when I was 19 and a.. Very different person! Protects against disease and parasites, aka: babies, but only venereal ones, so it was cheap!" Oh, well, - She slides her panties off her fat, bubbly, ass and flicks them at your head. "The time for talking is over!" Her pussy is not sideways. This will be your only small relief. "Oh! That is much larger than I thought it would be!" What follows is quite possibly the most depraved, illicit, drawn out, graphic, 2 and a half hours of sex you've ever had. You couldn't have anticipated receiving such an offensive act of pleasure from someone of your own species, but there ya go."You told me you weren't a Virgin!" She seems pretty satisfied though, "Next time I'll bring fairies." Despite her being a normie: there is unquestionably something wrong with this woman. You'll need time to think about whether you liked that or not. Accepting new actions.

That is unless we modify their anatomy.>>2709691Do you want to pay child support? Because I don't. Caster is still 17 and way too young.

"There, now I can see your pretty blue eyes!" Her narcoleptic face grins from ear to ear, "Do you.. have an opinion on crossdressing at all?" >>2709680>Rolling to research ways to sabotage brands of sexual protection.>Roll 10- Hah. You dodge the question and ask about the brand of sexual protection, is it Divine? Druidic? Necromatic? How does it work exactly- Somewhere a long the line, though, things get lost in translation and asking about "alternative methods of reproductive sabotage" things devolve into a second -shorter- round of anal sex and nothing but anal sex.... Which is fine, but Occultist is a little, well, hairy. just a bit more than you're used to.You can't be fucking Occultist all day and all night though: you two bathe off together (because Dark Ring would be a little.. impersonal when she's a guest.) and see her off the next day fresh, fed, and fornicated. "Thank you for the sex, Caster! I haven't been laid in 12 months, so I really appreciated it."God she's awkward.>>2709720>Trip(date) with the Gardener to study the Mass Grave Trees.>Roll 20- holllyyy mollyyy.You need to cleanse your palette: women are impure and this has nothing to do with Necromancy.. Unless they're dead and Occultist is very much alive. You Seance Gardener from out of wherever Bush he's studying and ask him if he'd like to study some WOOD with you this week. "Not if you're going to spend 7 days telling me nothing but terrible sexual puns in a clumsy teenage effort to flirt with me." You assure him some of the banter will be legitimately clever attempts at flirtation. Accepting field-trip related research and action rolls. We're about to study the heck out of some fuggin' trees.
>>2709747Oh cmon, don't compare what we're doing to actual war. Instead of needing to worry about an army ransacking our home and killing our family, all we need to worry about is if we go too close to Catherine's territory her kids will break our toys. >>2709762Still pretty messed up.

You've got a big week ahead of you, so make sure to pack everything you need- You're surprised, though, when Gardener punctually shows up at your manor quite early and at a reasonable hour. Annie serves him some breakfast while he waits for you.>>2709790>Research a way to make a fungus skeleton that isn't awful and can actually be kept around.>Roll 86- Pretty good. Rolling with advantage.Gardener compliments you on the cute little black bow you're still wearing, "You didn't have to get all dressed up for little ol' me, but I love it." You take the compliment, mostly because you want his help understand the Mushroom Skeleton you made like a week ago or so. "Oh, yeah, I can make one of those. Fungi can be used to reanimate corpses, sure, but the fungi that grows on them is extremely virulent and aggressive." His red leering eyes center on a corner of the basement, he points his parasol at it and a white spot of mold withers away. "They can't really be controlled, darling. They're used for biological warfare. You direct them at a problem and forget about them." Hmn.>>2709796>Examine the effects the trees are having on the mass graves, inspect the trees themself, chat up the local carrion birds>Roll 12- Good, above average. Heading out into the field on cloud back you have a go at inspecting the various trees and the growth. Gardener is dutiful and insightful in his comments; when you set down he explains everything and leaves nothing unexplained. "GothWood is extremely hardy and Miasmatic hungry, see how it's leaves aren't green and the bark black? It's absorbing and re-using all the miasma from this haunted hill." He hands you a shovel and tasks you to give a small hole so he can show you how the tree's roots have consumed the corpses here. Bad for you, but interesting.>>2709819>ask crows if we can revive the shrike>Roll 9- below average, but not 'bad'. Having a small picnic and despite Gardener's protests you feed a magpie or two and ask them if anything can be done about the Shrike. "Well, Catherine done gobbled up his body, so he's outta the game 'till he gets enough ah' that bird meat.. Not that any of us are gonna volunteer, eh? Ha-CAW CAW " "Stop playing with that filthy bird and eat- " Gardener shoos the magpie away and hands you a lovely smoked bacon sandwich. >>2709800>>2709804>Be gay with the Gardener>roll 3, 6- Awkward 3's. Attempts are made, but he still seems irritated you laid into his GraveRobber. He allows you to hold his hand between traveling from site to site and there's several kisses on the cheek exchanged, but the homosexuality is kept to alarmingly low levels. 2nd inc post. One moment.
>>2709916A Goth Wood necklace might be useful to surppress the miasma we naturally make.
hmmm. what if we make a body for him? if a crow or magpie can snag us some of his old feathers, even just a little, we could possibly use Teratoma to generate a new body.
>>2709942or have the philosophers stone clone a bunch of bird bodies en masse. Hopefully the meat won't be too "wrong" like the homunculus are so the Shrike can amalgamate it

>>2709858>See if the goth dryads use this tree for travel much so we can use it as a line of communication and possibly travel with out having to physically cross the border of the woods.>Roll 18- Good, very good.This question takes a couple days to prove- enough that if Gardener weren't around you'd have gotten discouraged and just wandered off, but he assures you, "Any Dryad that can even do a little bit of magic knows wood walk. They can pass through, hear through, and even see outside of a tree, but the probl- are you listening?" He pokes you with his parasol, Gardener insist this be done late at night. "The problem is the roots all need to be connected- oh, here we go." The same Dryad you met long ago pops out of the tree, "Hello?" Gardener is satisfied, "We just needed you to pop out and say hi, that's all dear." The Dryad seems annoyed, but you stop her since you have questions. >>2709797>Grab some of the Shrikes Feathers if we can help it>Roll 16- Good enough, but just barely.You ask her if there's any Shrike Feathers- even just one. "Oh, sure! Yeah, hold on." She then dives back into the wood as if it were a pool of water- ripples folding back into the notches of wood. Maybe 20 minutes later she pops back out with a feather. >New Quest Item>Shrike Feather, "This shadow in the shape of a greasy feather is small and sickly looking. The feather is delicate- flaking off a constant black dander and leaving behind a moth-like smear of black powder on your fingers." Accepting one more set of actions, so get it all out.

>>2709976>Seduce him>Roll 15- You needed at least a 15, so good job. The week stretches on, but around the 6th evening of your joint research trip/date Gardener seems to finally soften up to you and forgive you. It's all rather abrupt really or maybe you're just oblivious to his subtle nuances. It was just a little before dusk- you digging, Gardener watching you do all the digging, when he softly interrupts, "Yes, alright. Come along. We'll do it." He then ties up his hair, loosens a few straps and garters, and hands you several metal rings he expects you to wear around the girth of your genitals. Hands on the GothTree, Legs spread out wide, you.. You lift up his fancy gothic gown- Wait, won't the Dryads be able to see you from this angle? "I want them to see." Not the weirdest rut you've done, but you won't turn down a romp in the great outdoors. >>2710000>Invite Gardener to visit our crystal forest sometime, don't think he's ever been>Roll 18- Good, great even.Two Dark Rings and about an hour of travel time (Gardener naps through it, he has literally no stamina. It's kind of cute.) You're briefly back home: you want Gardener to have a look at your Crystal Forest to see if he has an opinion on the matter. Bundled up and heading down: his typical unimpressed visage is erased by genuine wonder and childish amazement- he can't help but poke around, take samples of, and inspect every little crystalline plant, icy nook, and frozen cranny. "You must be getting a lot of action if you're taking all your dates here. No wonder you reek." He's still got energy to be snide. Not so cute. Gardener isn't satisfied until he has one of every NUTT and berry, but when IS happy: he thanks you for a wonderful time, gives you a little peck on the cheek, and clouds off. You yell at him, asking where he learned that spell, "Stole it from you, darling~!" PLAGIARISMS. >>2709974>Let's bring this bad boy back to the Commune #9 after this field trip and ask Philosopher stone if she can clone the Shrike, more of these feathers, or a ton of crow meat.>Roll 19- Near perfect. This happens a few days after, but you bring that feather -sealed in a small glass vile provided by Gardener- to the commune to see if Archie or his Philosopher's stone can clone it. "This isn't organic material." Archie tells you after studying a few moments, "It has no mundane DNA to replicate, this is some sort of supernatural tissue. See, it's funny, but physical genetic material is often easier to replicate from very small sam-" Moe interrupts, "It's a shadow. It's got no meat. We could probably clone you, like, a dozen or so Crows, but if you want the Shrike back I doubt it'll be as convenient as that.." Moe eyes you up and down with his terrible, gorgeous, dazzling blue eyes, you.. awkwardly meet his gaze, "There's probably some sort of ritual or.. spell.." There's no way he doesn't know what you've been up to- he's just too BLONDE and HANDSOME not to.
>>2710059And with that: session dismissed for the night. Thanks everybody for participating- even if it was to just suggest EEEEEVIL or to encourage our teenage sexual escapades (I swear sexual stats don't matter, but ours are growing regardless) it's all good stuff. Here are the links as per usual:Thread has been archived: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?searchall=caster+quest And my Tumblr: http://spaghettiart.tumblr.com/ I'm gonna go EAT FOOD and think about playing Dragon's Dogma- holy shit do I want to play Dragon's Dogma. Do you know how on /v/ and /vg/ there's, like, people who just won't stop playing Dragon's Dogma? Like, it has a really obsessive community? I'm one of those guys. I love it so much- fuck Capcom. Where's my sequel??? Anyway, I'll be loitering around: questions are welcome.Dryads don't lactate: they feed their babies with that Breast Fruit they overfed you with! The stuff that made you have a big huge MRE dump because it was all you ate for 2 days!
>>2710059Clone ourself or crow meat? A GREAT IDEA!
>>2710070If it's not milk, then can we make sherbert our of the breast juice?Is the Coat of Skeletons viable? Can it be armed with guns and wands?When we complete the ultimate robes, can we modify it further?Are ice Bonemeal golems resistant to sunlight?Is changeling blood the key ingredient to sunlight resistance?

Rolled 60 (1d100)>>2710070If the dryads are hillbillies demons, could we trade stuff for more feathers?Can the feather be used to seance thw Shrike where ever he might be?If we clone ourself and fuck the clone, is it incest or maturation?Is it possible to over feed a fairy some of the super soil?>>2710090Holy shit that's a funny idea. Supporting.
>>2710081>Is the Coat of Skeletons viable? Can it be armed with guns and wands?Yes, but it's more of a... I guess Shadow or Spirit Robe, like, if you had gone full bone zone. >Is changeling blood the key ingredient to sunlight resistance?Blood just in general is a super useful Necromancer and Alchemical ingredient. >Are ice Bonemeal golems resistant to sunlight?Naw. The little bit of undead-ness makes them melt faster than if they were just made out of pure ice.
>>2710099>If the dryads are hillbillies demons, could we trade stuff for more feathers?I mean, if you wanted to you could be trading with the forest hillbillies all sorts of stuff. You got that tree growing there... Technically one day soon you might have hillbillies living in your Dungeon. >Is it possible to over feed a fairy some of the super soil?That would kill the fairy, Anon. We don't want to be "that kid" who killed a fairy. There's always at least one in the village and all the other kids stop hanging out with him because he's a weirdo who does things to fairies. We can't be that weirdo- our charm state would take a penalty.
>>2710100Is it possible to make a Wicker Man version of some Scarecrow golems?Are there any cows in Copse?What would happen if we crusher ice shards and snorted them like coke?Are there any wizard Changelings in our village?
>>2710114>Are there any cows in Copse?Yes. >Are there any wizard Changelings in our village?According to my autistic world building paperwork Changelings have a 10% Caster Rate. So at LEAST 17 out of the 170 Changelings you have would theoretically be competent enough to do magic.... That doesn't mean they know magic or realize they 'can' do magic.
>>2710132how do demons "make" meat and blood?
>>2710172>how do demons "make" meat and blood?All paranormal creatures have access to simple cantrips, spells, and other supernatural abilities. (Mechanically speaking: they get these to make up for their very restrictive class options. )Demons have the Warlock cantrip: summon blood/milk and meat... Which does what it says it does and lets um' summon meat, milk, or blood.. From Hell and if it doesn't get eaten in 24 hours it gets sent back to Hell.
>>2710189That's pretty awesome. I'm surprised the Dryads only had a little sausage to eat.
>>2710189What are the current thought of our employees? The Hobgoblins,goblins, the flesh golems, the dungeon builder.How do some of the more intelligent creatures in the ice dungeon feel about Caster?
>>2710216>What are the current thought of our employees? The Hobgoblins,goblins, the flesh golems, the dungeon builder.-The HobGoblins really like you: they were slaves and you've been very kind and fair to them. This has been a dream gig for them and they're not in any rush to leave. They sometimes think about asking you to take on more of their 'mule' people, but they wouldn't dare impose such a selfish request on you. -The Goblins are thinking of leaving. No disrespect, they just like Chemmy more than they like you and kind of want to go off and build a mound with him. Chemmy has actually grown very powerful in your care.-Annie is well taken care of, but she misses the company of her own kind and the dreary environment of a nice haunted wood. -Eloy has.. Softened up to you. He has a genuine professional respect for you, your skills and now understand and tolerates serving a teenage Human... But this is still only a temp job for him: save money, get experienced, head back to Goliard while their Dungeon Boom is still booming.
>>2710245I guess I know what I'm gonna suggest tomorrow. Get more strong mule Hobgoblins from Pug.
>>2710245What about the smart monsters?
>>2710245Can hair be reanimated since it's dead?
Anyone else think it's a bad idea to revive the Shrike? After Catherine is gone he's gonna be gunning for us.
>>2710690Just keep the undead out of the woods and it'll be fine.
>>2710701YepPerhaps we need to dabble more into the art of darkness to revive the Shrike. What if we cast dark circle in the feather?
Last post is right over here: >>2710059Yesterday on Caster Quest we welcomed some of those pesky Changeling Immigrants to our humble village, we experimented a little here and there, we discovered the untold depravity of Miss Occultist, and we sent our darling Twin Flesh Golems off to Pug to seek a higher education under the tutelage of Abel (of the Rot) and Adrienne (of the pit). It's only been a few weeks, but you already miss them so much! Your information is here: Your current inventory & lair information: https://pastebin.com/3xnHBDVs https://pastebin.com/xnLhuuRfYour current spellbook & undead list: https://pastebin.com/tJNzGa4e https://pastebin.com/3W9U0fbG Your crafting & dungeon info: https://pastebin.com/azDS5QV5 https://pastebin.com/pXTrGXVKYour visuals! Your spellbook's art has been updated (getting pretty beefy!): http://spaghettiart.tumblr.com/image/175103241507 http://spaghettiart.tumblr.com/image/175381412382Right now though you've other business on your mind: you've been studying the new GothTrees growing in the mass graves with your associate Gardener- he's been teaching you a thing or two about horticulture n' so forth and has been a big help in his own way.... But he has also been copying your spells off of your spell book without your permission, so he's 'that guy'- you know the one. It's not 'that' big of a deal though and your week of researching the GothTrees was constructive and educational. You're at Commune #9 either way though: hanging out, having a little bit of dinner with the Homunculi in the public mess hall- there's a few more outside races here than you're used to, but everyone is largely keeping to their species... Well, except for you. You're sitting between several Homunculi and having pleasant idle chit chat. Accepting new actions. As said before: we're just kinda bumming around the Commune while we figure out what we'd like to do next.
Rolled 8 (1d100)>>2711658Time for some mad mystical science. Let's ask the Philosopher stone to make a bunch of crow corpses for us to work with. Then let's channel as much darkness into the feather as we possibly can along with the Teratoma spell.
Rolled 19 (1d20)>>2711658Ask around about those ruins between Denmire's and Sholt's. What was it? Has it been looted?
Rolled 8 (1d20)>>2711658>Seduce, or be seduced by, Moe
Rolled 15 (1d20)>>2711658Examine the tree samples from the new goth trees with Archie in his lab.
Rolled 9 (1d20)>>2711658Ask Moe if he'd like a project building a suit of armor and a large cold iron weapon for our future troll zombie
Rolled 18 (1d20)>>2710100Could we start harvesting blood from our troll lawn ornament and preserving it in bulk once we get home?Or work out a deal with the Stone for supplies of cloned blood?
>>2711678>Ask around about those ruins between Denmire's and Sholt's. What was it? Has it been looted?>Roll 19- They tell you exactly what 'you' want to know.Life is on a strict schedule here on the Commune, you sometimes forget that: The Homunculi finish their meals within mere moments of one another and soon there's a line of them putting away their dishes n' so forth in the exact same order they order their food. It really is something, but it also means you're left alone with the.... Non-Constructs ...You're gonna go ask for rumors!-The Gnome's table tells you the place used to be a Changeling farming village. "More squatters and vagabonds mooching off of Gnomish scraps, but they were decent folk. We don't know what happened. The place is infested with Pumpkins and other plants, so it's a lovely rest spot." -The Dwarf table is practically cloaked in cigar smoke, "It's just another failed settlement of no significance: no mineral deposits, no dungeon, no oil, no point." -The Orc's table is a complete mess and they have no intention of cleaning it, "The grasslands between Denmire and Sholt is pristine and perfect pasture land *snort* but it's too out in the open. Feckin' shame it is. *grunt* " >>2711687>Seduce, or be seduced by, Moe>Roll 8- With PLEASURE. The summer sun setting, the crickets warming up, and the street lights letting off a soft buzz of yellow light- You spy Moe taking a smoke break on the steps of the Arcanum's. Kicked out of the lab for smoking. You talk a little here and there, but he knows whats up. He allows one sit on his lap and a quick nervous smooch on the lips- but that's all you get. Because you've got work to do!>>2711690>Examine the tree samples from the new goth trees with Archie in his lab.>Roll 15- Dependable high five. Rolling with advantage.Handing Archie a few shavings of Bark you took from the young GothTrees and escorts you to.. His Greenhouse! "This is a new addition actually. I plan on cultivating a number of species to take back with me and introduce to the elemental plane of machine. It's a completely sterile environment, so it should be an interesting terraforming project." Archie demonstrates that the GothTree is a magical tree- like the one in the Commune's square garden and the ones growing in your Dungeon. "Wood's magical uses don't just begin and end with staves, trees themselves are powerful natural agents and enablers of magic even when alive." He demonstrates this a little by submersing a small bark sample in pure mana- the bark turns to an almost porcelain white hue similar to the golden tree outside. Neat. Accepting new Actions.
Rolled 18 (1d20)>>2711735I don't know. Cast the Resurrection spell on the feather? Add a drop of pure mana to the feather to see if it does anything?
>>2711735We should totally plant one of our crystal saplings at the mana spring in the Rotwood whenever we make our secret lab there once Catherine is gone.
Rolled 15 (1d20)>>2711735Ask Archie if we can visit him occasionally on Mechanus. He's a prude but a good friend
Rolled 43 (1d100)>>2711735Reanimate that damn troll back home. I sympathize with trollanons pain
Rolled 56 (1d100)>>2711771I gave up on it anon lol. No one wants a troll zombie but that is the best roll for it ever
Rolled 9 (1d20)>>2711735See how things are going in the Hemlock reconstruction.
Rolled 4 (1d20)>>2711786Good idea. See if they need any help from golems or make some scarecrows for them
>>2711735Ask Annie when we get home if she wants us to make more flesh golems to flush out the village once the Twins come home
>>2711787We already offered some snow golem help didn't we? Or am I mistaking that for us building our own village?
>>2711794Yeah we have golems building during the night shift while our residents work the day shift, I think
>>2711744>I don't know. Cast the Resurrection spell on the feather? Add a drop of pure mana to the feather to see if it does anything?>Roll 18- Needed at least a 17, so good on yeah.You and Archie try a lot of things to no avail, but eventually you make a breakthrough when you accidentally drop the feather on the floor and it touches your shadow. The feather 'absorbs' the darkness out of your shadow and leaves you emotionally and physically drained- Archie has to administer you a potion and a 30 minute nap. But when you look at the Feather again it's got a little cube of pale, veiny, looking flesh attached to it and several small feathers. Further tests conclude that the tissue sample grows only in contact with the shadows of other living entities- plants included, but at diminished returns. Archie's shadow is ignored, "Well that's just offensive. I'm 'moderately' organic." >>2711758>Ask Archie if we can visit him occasionally on Mechanus. He's a prude but a good friend>FreebieHaving learned what you wanted to know you head on back home, but not before asking Archie about his trip to Mechanus- specifically if you'll be allowed to visit him. "But of course, I'd love you to come visit. Planar-tourism is something everyone and anyone should experience at least once. I'd be honored if you visited." You have to laugh since you're used to Demons telling you they never ever want to go back home. You're going to make a stop at Hemlock... Someday, but right now you want to head back home to get some work done. >>2711778>>2711771>Animate the damn troll.>Roll 43, 56- Low success, but success. Trolls are especially sensitive to light -ESPECIALLY- Undead ones, so under the cover of darkness you dig up that Trolls nearly.. What has it been? Quarter? Half a Year? You're almost 17, jeez. Anyway, you dig it up, this 18ft freak of nature and proceed reanimate it in it's own grave: drawing a ritual circle in the lawn, stuffing it with herbs, and exhuming it with Miasma.The body slowly drags itself out of the hole- stumbling and teetering onto it's fat feet as it groans, drips, and dead troll fur flakes off of it in small bunches. >1 x Troll Zombie = 10>38/40 currently controlled. You're getting a little lightheaded and the lawn's grass around the Troll's grave has been killed, but here it is. 'Undead', moving about.. This would be a great horror to send into the Rotwood you say allowed to yourself- most of your staff hiding inside. Accepting new Actions. You're currently out on the lawn- Annie has brought you tea and a little ice to help with your throbbing headache.
>>2711840Brb, DM bathroom break. I'll take actions once I get back- Good time to discuss all the weird n' necromatic schemes you might have.
Rolled 32 (1d100)>>2711840I don't think this is a research roll so I'm gonna use an action dice.Scratch that, research to be safe.Let's apply necrotic surgery to make the undead less ugly. Shape it's torso to give it perfect abs you ca grate cheese on, make the face at least passable, make it an Ice Bonemeal mask just in case it's too ugly. Let's straiten out it's teeth to be viciously even. Uh, enchant the giant bone club with ice.Give it the works.
Rolled 17 (1d20)>>2711840Make another ice wraith, but actually keep this one around as part of your horde. Dismiss a few Zombies if you have to.
Rolled 17 (1d20)>>2711860What kind of wraith?>>2711840Get the input of Avarice, our employees, Moe and Archie about possible armor for the giant troll. What is cheap and readily available for it?
Rolled 58 (1d100)>>2711840Harvest a decent amount of trolls blood from the petrified one and study it to see if we can replicate the black sludge our evil half made that allowed his troll to withstand sunlight>>2711855I don't get your obsession with beautifying the Troll Zombie>>2711872It could even be simple armor that's just metal plates bolted into the troll itself that we should enchant of course. With a full body suit of armor it wouldn't need to cosmetic surgery
Rolled 79 (1d100)>>2711840I think we should start planning out another flesh golem. One to act as our dedicated liaison, overseer and/or tax collector for our town. I'm thinking a stern but fair no-nonsense type. Maybe tallish and some what handsome. What does every one else think?
Rolled 62 (1d100)>>2711840Release our mammoth wraith to seed the dungeon>>2711860Would need to be a d100 roll like this>Make an Ice Wraith and dominate it
>>2711908Sounds like someone we'd need eventually whenever we accept Lady Chevals offer of Lordship so I support it.Maybe wait until the Twins arrive to start making him though? I think with their abilities they might be helpful in the actual creation.I want to start making or preparing to make more Flesh Golems. I like that idea of creating a Flesh Golem population
>>2711908Not really interested, but you already rolled so there not much of a point in asking.>>2711905Metal is expensive though. The problem us outfitting an 18ft tall Troll with armor. That's several tons worth of protection which would cost a fortune. It's why I rolled to ask for a cheap readily available alternative. I'm thinking of chunks of Ice mixed with sawdust and enchanted with heat absorbing powers. Pykrete is supposed to be a bit 'tougher' than ice and takes longer to melt.
>>2711905If we're gonna send something to die it might as well look good doing it.
>>2711853Is it possibly to insert a nonTroll brain into a troll corpse to make a Troll sized Flesh Golem? It would be nice to have a giant protective body guard.
>>2711912>Release our mammoth wraith to seed the dungeon>FreebieYou order your Mammoth Wraith to go deep into your Dungeon before you relinquish your psychic control over it. It's an immense load of your mind and hopefully it will seed the dungeon>Undead back to 28/40 controlled.>>2711872>Get the input of Avarice, our employees, Moe and Archie about possible armor for the giant troll. What is cheap and readily available for it?>Roll 17- LuckyyyyAvarice gets dressed and escorts you to the Smithy in town, "The forge the Homunculi set up with is pretty high quality- The towns folk and the goblins have been pitching in with recycling scrap, ore, and whatevers available, so we can fashion some crude armor for your freakish Troll if you wish, Boss." >The Troll now has armor: bent and curved metal sheets, pots, shields tied together, layered over leather and some wood here and there- all protecting it's knees, joints, wrists, heart, and the neck. You prioritize it's connecting points and joints. >A very mild Frost Enchantment is then place on this. >>2711860>Make another ice wraith, but actually keep this one around as part of your horde.>Roll 17- Luckkyyyy!! Though, technically a d100, but I'll give it to you.While Avarice oversees the goblins and villagers work in the smithy; you fill out a little more of your roster since you've free'd up some space with the release of that Haunted Mammoth. Some Ice Wraiths would be nice, so you lay out some skeletons in the Dungeon and see what you can manage to get spookin'. >Out of the several Skeletons you plant only 3 spawn Wraiths. >3 x 2 = 6>34/40 Controlled Undead. The Wraiths are a little more finicky just because of them lacking a tangible body, but they make up for it in terms of how much fun they are: they can move through walls and anything they touch gets a little frosty coating. >>2711908>One to act as our dedicated liaison, overseer and/or tax collector for our town.>Roll 79- Well above average. With all this going on, you'd like to retain your momentum, so the last thing you take care of is drawing up the plans and maybe sorting through and seancing your available materials for a nice, dependable, Mayor Golem who'll be able to lead and manage your town and the various normies that may or may not inhabitant it. This is just you crunching the numbers (Eloy helps), but you have enough "materials" to problem make.. 30 'Perfect' Flesh Golems... Or 60 Average.. Or 90 just absolute shit. Annie speaks up for once and strongly advises Quality over Quantity, "Flesh Golems made incorrectly will want to fix themselves.. This can cause problems and unhappiness." Accepting new Actions.
>>2711983>>34/40 Controlled Undead.Sorry, brain fart: we actually hit our cap. We're full up on Undead Controlled- 40/40.
Rolled 16 (1d100)>>2711983Supporting roll for Troll immunity and black blood. Maybe changeling blood might be the answer? If it can work on trolls then it might be able to work on other types of undead.
Rolled 95 (1d100)>>2711983If golems don't count towards the cap, get crackin on those 30 perfects.
>>2711983>>2711991Research, daylight immunity for the troll. Do we have our shadow self's memories or notes on this? Maybe Annie knows?
Rolled 81 (1d100)>>2712001Would help if I rolled wouldn't it?
Rolled 14 (1d20)>>2711983Seance Mimas and ask when he plans to begin attacking Catherine. Tell him about our Wickerman terrorism idea and ask if he can spare junk corpses for the creation of more to unleash against the Bug Knights
>>2712010Wraiths might be good against the demons since they can phase through solid objects.
>>2711998nice nice, that a prep work roll? I'd like to get the Twins back before we start making them proper but with a roll like that we might be able to make a few right away
This should bring our village population up to 210. Our Flesh Golems will needs a lot of clothes. Any ideas where we should get some? Because I think some should have modified Poe made fabrics.I vaguely remember Trolls were supposed to either turn to stone or burn in sunlight. Maybe their blood might have the same property. What if, we could make fire breathing, or vomiting trolls?
>>2711983OHInvite Bee Mom and sisters to visit our growing village some time
>>2712054that's something I can support. I wonder what they've been up too and how the mud golem has been put to use.
Hey guys. What if we were to capture a Troll and ask Avarice to feed it everyday so it grows large?
>>2712062we'd have to go to the Jungle or outside of Copse to find them. I think Abel killed them all
>>2712067https://pastebin.com/azDS5QV5>Frost Troll (Small-Medium)Nah. We're good. We can get and grow them locally.
>>2711991>>2712005>Research and Develop Daylight Ichor. >Roll 81- Good, very good. Rolling with advantage. The memories of your past self are a little fuzzy; they melded quite seamlessly with your own pschye, so it's difficult to pinpoint what was real since so much of it feels like a dream. Though, with Chemmies expansive alchemical knowledge (he really has learned quite a lot) you remember the recipie:https://pastebin.com/pXTrGXVK (Crafting List)>+New Potion+>Daylight Ichor: "By replacing all the blood in a Zombie's body with this thick, viscious, black fluid you can make immunize it against the sun. Daylight Ichor is made out of Sunflower Seed oil, Changeling blood, and Black Mold. This potion can be ingested by intelligent undead to ward against the sun, but replacing their 'blood' with it would kill them." You're going to need a lot of Changeling Blood. You vaguely remember your evil self having killed and drained drifters and gypsies to get his. >>2711998>If golems don't count towards the cap, get crackin on those 30 perfects.>Roll 95- Dependable 5 and a NEAR PERFECT ROLL. All those potions take time to brew and test, so in the mean time you prepare and sort the various parts you'll need to make all these handsome n' strapping Flesh Golem Citizens. -You're doing a 40/60 split, not by choice, but you've just got more male parts than female parts... Some of them'll be pretty good lookin' guys though since Homunculi bones. -All the brains need to be seanced. This is your least favorite part, but it's the most important: some are too old, some are evil, some are good at magic, some aren't, some are just fuckin' dumb, etc.. -The third step is just grunt work: drain fluids, rub herbs, sew, Dark ring, repeat. They need to be 'dry' and seamless or their blood boils and they 'pop'. The 30 Flesh Golems have been prepped: they look pretty good, but you're exhausted and the process takes nearly 4 days. It's exhausted much of your resources, but Annie looks over all of them and her typically conservative face begins to light up a bit, "All these new friends just look wonderful! Thank you, sir.">>2712010>Seance Mimas and ask when he plans to begin attacking Catherine.>Roll 15- Good, good.Recovering from all that lab work you Seance Mimas to talk strategy. You ask him what he thinks of sending you Bog-Bodies n' various other bodies to animate or craft into horrors to send towards Catherines forces. Like a monster of the week deal. "My friend, that would be an immense help. I had been thinking of that, but did not wish to impose on someone so young who has already done so much already. I've been raising Skeletons and Zombies myself, but I'd imagine they pale in comparison to a true Necromancer's finely tuned work." >Mimas agrees to ship you a parcel of bodies from the bog every week, so long as you can sick horrors onto Catherine. Accepting new Actions.
Rolled 19 (1d20)>>2712086Address the concerns of our residents raised last night namely the Hobgoblins and GoblinsTalk with Chemmy about him leading the Goblins to create a burrow or den in the Dungeon so they can be somewhat on their own while still close enough to us where he can help us out as our assistant still and they can work "jobs" if they can be trained well enoughThe hobgoblins would be simple enough to ask Lady Cheval to send us more hobgoblins or purchase them from Pug.I'm kinda tempted to phase our the Goblin workers we have to purely Hobgoblins and let the Goblins move into the Dungeon
Rolled 45 (1d100)>>2712086Check what happens when you try to infuse mana into a wisp
Rolled 14 (1d20)Our population is getting marginally larger. Perhaps once we reach a threshold we can celebrate with a festival and make it a yearly occurrence? I'm thinking once we hit five hundred residence.While we're at it, what if we make a temple with multiple shrines dedicated to multiple gods? We know of Scylla, Nyx, Typhon and Verminus.>>2712086We can pay out changeling villagers to donate their blood so we can eventually replace the blood of the troll with the Ichor. Some copper pieces (10-30 per Liter?) for a liter or two worth of blood. Maybe even reach out to En if they don't mind. Rolling for this.We'll want to strip the bodies of fleshy bits so the demons can't eat them. We'll focus on making the most fucked up Wicker Men as possible.
Rolled 34 (1d100)>>2712086Rest up, double check all the prepped golems. Make any last minute adjustments or preparation to make sure we are 100% ready. Having a stash of dark crystals on hand would probably be wise. And we best not try to animate more than one at a time. We hopefully learned that lesson with the twins. Did we get the Mayor Golem ready?
>>2712110Are you wisp research anon? it'll probably turn into a Poe. A super powerful Poe. Possibly exceeding past that and into a Wraith.
>>2712110>>2712120Hah infuse Mana into a wisp? Mana does bad, bad things to undead. Miasma on the other hand makes wisps bigger.

>>2712115I was thinking of setting up a "blood tax" where Changelings donate blood every other week or so. Monetary compensation is a good idea though.>>2712116We should wait for the Twins before we animate the Golems.
>>2712126>We should wait for the Twins before we animate the Golems.Sure, I was just wanting to give them a once over to make sure everything was ready/give us more advantage when we are finally ready to actually go through with animating them.
>>2712116>Did we get the Mayor Golem ready?Dunno. Maybe the Mayor was included in the initial 30.>>2712123Fair point.>>2712126It looks like all we need to do is rest up and fill the bodies with as much miasma as possible, with the help of the Lich Phylactery of course. We should leave the twins alone while they study abroad. I mean they will be in Pug for some time. Weeks, possibly months? Do you think they'll take up new religions?
>>2712125or just start some plans for turning home into a militarized fort

Maybe chainsaws are too meta. Perhaps Moe might have something to draw inspiration from.

>>2712169if we make a large chalk circle around our village, would that work thoug, against demons??
>>2712109>Address the concerns of our residents raised last night namely the Hobgoblins and Goblins>Roll 19- Good, near completely perfect. This needed at least a 12. You call a staff meeting, specifically: you want to talk to all the Goblins and the Hobgoblins. You'd like their opinion on how they would be about.. Being 'let go' more or less. You think it's time you took the steps to phasing them out as a cheap work force. The Goblins Agree. Chemmy Agrees. -Chemmy loves you a "whole fuckin' bunch": but he'd like to take his boys, hunt down some females, and start his own Den. He isn't opposed to moving into the Dungeon. -The Hobgoblins respect you quite a lot: this has been the easiest gigs of their lives, they don't feel like 'slaves', and you've been very kind. They'd like to see more of their kind, but understand you have to keep up appearances. >The Gobs and the Hobs have been talked to. Whatever decision you ultimately make: release the Gobs, get more Hobs, they won't be offended. >>2712116>Rest up, double check all the prepped golems.>Roll 34- Low, but every prep roll helps. With all 31 Flesh Golems prepped (counting the Mayor), you double, triple, check all their seems, joints, check for any bug or worm damage (which can potentially ruin them) as well as making the nessecary preperations for the Phylactery machine by piling up a small wooden crate containing glass jars with mana crystals safely inside them. You're gonna wait for the Twins to get back when you Animate them though- they'll probably be an immense help and it in part why you wanted to make them. Lab Assistance. >>2712110>Check what happens when you try to infuse mana into a wisp>Roll 45- Low Average.The last little thing you take care of while you're in the lab and remember you've got some pure Mana.. You.. You dip a Wisp in some. The Wisp "dies": fizzling out like a smothered candle frame, but leaving behind a bright, sparkling, shiny, powdery residue. The residue is reminiscent of fairy dust. Neat. Accepting new Actions.
Rolled 20 (1d20)>>2712186What happened to the changeling blood bank roll? Or the home fortification roll?I would like to capture a frost Troll and experiment on it. Perhaps it's blood will have a different effect. While we're at it we might as well look for the last piece for our robe.

>>2712224Holy shit. I never believed there would be any female goblins from Pug, what with how protective goblins are of them. Looks like we hit the jackpot here.
Rolled 38 (1d100)>>2712186INFUSE MIASMA INTO A WISPMEGA WISP REVIVAL
>>2712239There's nothing more we can do with wisps. Infusing them with more miasma will either turn them into a Poe or make them explode. I believe the next step to poe/wisp/wraith related research is to investigate the process of making the heard for Ice Bonemeal golems.Dark us showed us the proper steps to make one. One of which was the heart where we used a wisp to burn the ingredients, mold it into some lumpy thing, then infuse the wisp into the heart.Not word for word but that was the general gist of it.What if we give a Bonemeal Golem multiple wisp hearts/cores?What if we use a Poe for the core?What if we use a Wraith as the core?
Rolled 16 (1d20)>>2712186Look for an instruction manual or call up Archie to find out more about working withe the Phylactery machine. What it do?
>>2712255I like that last idea. Let's try that next.
>>2712256Good call. Archie probably still has his left over notes when he was working on the Phylactery machine. Any amount of insight into it's functions would be a major boon.>>2712224One of these days we should probably deal with the slavery issue in Pug.>>2712260A big powerful potent heart requires a big powerful and sturdy construct. I think it would be wise and good for our wallet if we started off small. Perhaps we can graft a wisp heart into a zombie and/or skeleton and see what happens.
>>2712206>>2712125>Reinforce and Ward our little GothWood Grove. >Roll 4, 17- I'll give you this one since it's a good idea.Another day, another bit of field work to take care of... This time, though, you're interested in what you can do to better protect the Eldin GothWood so it can grow up big and strong. Summer is here, the rains have gone, so the flowers have been replaced by field after field of nearly armpit-height green grass that waves in the breeze and hides all manner of critter. You see the Bee Women hovering over the fields- they've been back and forth this whole time tending to the grove: planting seeds, pollinating flowers, and transplanting a border of sunflowers around the area with the help of that Mud Golem you made them. They've been using Mr.muddy to grow Sunflowers, his whole back is thick with a coat of the plants. You help the Bee Women secure the area. >>2712223>Changeling Blood Tax>Roll 12- Good, above average. Rolling at disadvantage: not a Lord. Heading back into town you call a town meeting as you'd like to address a few issues:1. You need Blood. Changeling Blood. You let the people know that if they wont' or can't pay their agriculture or commerce tax that they can give you a liter or so of fresh Changeling Blood. >Many of them think this is unusual and a little offensive, but they joke that they'd rather you take their blood than the sweat of their brow in work.>Eloy hasn't been paying attention, but quietly says Changelings taste awful, so if you're doing this for him: please don't. 2. How would they feel about.. >>2712115 A church? >Oh, well, now you done it. Now you have done it. There's NO census on which God they should worship- they're all out of province, nomads, vagabonds, drifters, and all have varying opinions, subscriptions, etc.. Even more haven't aligned with anyone since they don't want to 'cause waves'. Okay, well, Eloy "Yes sir?" Handle this would you? You wander off, Eloy's red eyes go narrow like a cats and he becomes nervous, "E-excuse me? Sir, sir wait-" Nope, you're the one with the university education. Handle this. I'm going to Pug. May the rivers keep running. >>2712224>Get more hobgoblins and female goblins from Pugs slave markets>Roll 20- Perfect. It's perfect. Meanwhile, in Pug:You immediately find what you're looking for. They have a dozen or so Hobgoblins (13), that's not an issue, but they also have three very raggedy, very skinny, chained up Goblin Females (3).You've never seen a Female Goblin and the fat, floppy, Orcish SlaveMaster knows exactly the worth of such a rare item- Goblins guard their females with their lives, so these were most likely taken tooth and nail from some burrow. While you're in Pug, is there anything else you'd like to do? There's a Temple, Cheval's Castle, etc.. These Goblins need some food, rest, and tlc- Maybe a visit to the double twins?
Rolled 8 (1d20)>>2712306Personally doctor up our new acquisitions. And get them some food and a short rest, maybe in Cheval's servants quarters while we see the twin twins.
>>2712306>Visit Lady Cheval and Mimas, discuss the Catherine assault and the Lordship>Buy the Hobgoblins and Goblin ladies and get them fed and taken care of while waiting for us to return home with them on our big cloud>Go visit both sets of Twins to see how the tutoring goes
Rolled 6 (1d20)>>2712306Haggle for a better price on the goblins. His neglect has left them in a very weak and frail state. They're susceptible to diseases and all manners of sickness, especially since they're in Pug and I doubt slaves are given the luxury of cleanliness. I'd give them a few days to live?Haggle for the Hobgoblins as well. If he keeps all his slaves in the same state, the hobgoblins would be worth even less than the felmale gobbies. We would have to invest a lot of medicine, food and time to get them back to peak healthy conditions.

Maybe let her know that Catherine found a way to make more demons and ask her if she can help us secure some frost trolls. Alive.>>2712326Good call. We should buy stuff that fits their skill sets. Clothes and personal self defense weapons would be a good start.
>>2712306Hey we haven't seen Butcher in a while. Maybe we should also drop by and say 'hi' to her while we're here. Her main residence is here isn't it?

>>2712322>Haggle for a better price on the goblins.>Roll 6- You needed at least a 10, but you've got STATUS.You complain to the fat pig that his slaves are BAD of poor QUALITY and he should feel bad: these female gobbies can't fuck if they're skinny and malnourished and the Hobs? Don't get me started (The hobs are fine. He should get you started because you'd be unable to complain.) !!He isn't convinced by your words, but he notices your clothing, the ring, your eyes.. Even your little claws and gets a bit nervous. He marks them all down by 30%. Done deal. >>2712326>buy equipments for the new staff>Roll 7- LuckyyyyyHeading out of the yucky slave market and into the yucky non-slave market: you hover around from stall to stall picking up clothing, equipment, for your new hobbies and gobbies. One of the Hobgoblins knows a little bit of magic and makes a request for a staff and a reagent pouch expecting neither: you buy him the works. You buy them all the works!>Your Hobs and shivering, emaciated, she-gobbies are happy and more comfortable.>>2712316>Personally doctor up our new acquisitions.>roll 8- Well that's just gr8t. The final stop for the day is back to Lady Chevals Court- you're announced and everything, but they weren't expecting you to drag in so many dirty gobbies n' hobbies. You request the presents of the quad-twins and they come almost immediately. "Father! Father!" wearing matching black acolyte robes they're difficult to tell apart, but they rush over to pet and stroke your head, "Father this little black bow is delightful!". "Hello Daddy~!" Adrienna is here too- and so is Abel, whom just waves. Abel isn't very flirt, that's okay. The Gobs and Hobs are fed, rehabilitated, washed, healed, and spruced up. They're mostly just undernourished and dirty, but the Goblins have a few shallow bruises n' bumps that need to be treated. In the mean time...>See if she ever dug up Mimas' old school uniform, and if so, have her wear it for you.>roll 3. You slink away to see how Cheval is doing in her quarters.. Maybe.. Ask about that crossdressing request. "Oh, it's done actually. My old uniform fell apart hundreds of years ago, so we had to tailor you a new one. Here you are~" Cheval presents you with a Girls School Uniform from her time period. This is, hhmmn.. Hhmmnn. You feel as though a few key details have been lost in translation. You try it on anyway. Just for her. "Oh, the skirt is a little too short. How delightful ."You thought this would be more embarrassing, but you are very cute, so you'll survive. Accepting new actions.

Out of 100 no less.You make a meat pie that is so absolutely, undeniably, garbage that even the Undead, Orcs, and Filth Demons -even them- are unanimous in how offensive it is. Nothing you did turned out right: the mushrooms are bad, the seasonings are bad, the meat is bad, the crust is bad, it's too soggy, it's too burnt, it's cold in the middle, too hot on the outside. It is so completely repungent that a Grandpa Filth Demon- an Elder: white hair, sunken eyes, carrying a pipe as a staff and escorted by his younger kin: offers to buy the pie off of you when you go to chuck it into the sewer. "I could never imagine mortal hands could make something so foul, please. I wish to study it." >You are no longer allowed in the Kitchen at Cheval's manner, but this horrid pie now circulates urban myth and rumor among the sewers inhabitants... Also you got a couple silver pieces for it. >>2712434>Visit with Mimas and Cheval if they have the time, discuss the Catherine problem, the offered lordship, dungeon keeping, etc>Roll 11- Weird, but good. Back to business though, a day later court is called and you and Cheval's council (priests included) discuss strategy in the war room. -Mimas, after suffering heavy Orcish casualties has resorted to pestilence tactics: sending wave after wave of Skeleton, Bog-Zombie, and whatever filth he can dredge up from the Swamp. "Catherine hasn't been appreciating this, but we're confident with Sir Necromancer's help we can push this further." -Mimas believes your creations could really make the difference since he can't animate anything larger than a medium-sized Humanoid or control Ghosts. -Cheval admits she has a Succubus Spy infiltrating Catherine's territory and he's managed to confirm that Catherine has a Warlock hidden deep away in the Manner. If the Warlock could be dealt with: Catherine wouldn't be able to create more forces. -Cheval is still willing to award you a title, but understands if you're still unsure. Things have gotten rather out of hand. >>2712461>Seduce MimasAfter the meeting you pursue Mimas back to his quarters for what he had thought were platonic purposes, but was surprised and intrigued to find you had.. Other things in mind. "Oh, I suppose you wouldn't find me unappealing, hmn? Do I remind you of home~?" So, okay, couple things about Mimas:-Mimas likes having his hair pulled and being slapped around.-Mimas head does indeed come off. If anything he uses this for some.. Rather -creative- maneuvers. -Mimas is the one rolling for anal circumference: he's shockingly submissive behind closed doors and with his armor is off. -Mimas is the most vocal person you've been with.

Before you head out you go on a little shopping trip with the Twins and all four of them catch you up on how well they're doing in their studies and how long they expect to be tutoring them for... Which will be a few more months- four at the latest. They promise though that it'll be worth it and you believe them and even then you can visit them whenever, but for now it is time to shop! You pick up just the standard goodies:Tool, Food, Ammunition, Alcohol Armor, Weapons, couple of odds, couple of ends. Abel and Adrienna, though, pick you up something particularly thoughtful.. Well, sort of:>++Quest Items!++>Orthodox Idol to Verminus, "While no one knows what Verminus looks like, this one looks the most 'safe'. Orthodox style depicts Verminus as an androgynous figure cradling deformed and sickly people in their arms." >Orthodox Idol to Nyx, "Nyx is a rather 'new' God- only a few hundred years old, so their public image is sketchy. This idol depicts Nyx as a maternal figure: draped in a black hood of stars, covering smaller figures underneath her while she stands between them and a large fish or reptile?" Mimas also sees you off with several crates and caskets of dead bodies. And a little lock of his hair in a ribbon- Seems he liked what you did to him... Do.. His people do this? People don't do this in your culture. You'll assume it's normal.>>2712574>Escort our goblinoids back home and have a party to see Chemmy and the goblins off.>Roll 12- Above average rolling with advantage. You bring everybody and everything you're bringing home and immediately consume the additional resources having a massive going away goblin party for Chemmy and his gang: They love the new females, they love Chemmy, they love You! Party, party, part- Oh man are you ever fucking sick the next morning. You're sick, your cock is chaffed, Annie and Eloy are cleaning up- there's like 12 Goblins in your room and you've been through all of them. Chemmy's seen the best (worst) of it, but he's the leader- he can handle it. >The 29 Goblins under your care have bid their farewell and have gone to live in your Dungeon. They're gone, but not really. Snoblins? >You've still got 19 Hobgoblins though. Loyal, bold, n' brash. Speaking of Snow:>2712205>Capture and Experiment on a Frost Troll>Roll 20- Because I missed it and it's a good roll.You capture a couple of Frost Trolls to cut them open, see what makes them tick, make expose them to the sun- oh, okay, so why do they burst into flames? Some of them have thick fur, some of them have thick fat, some of them have tusks, some tails, some horns- Trolls have no consistancy. They're all vaguely Chimpanzee-sized, mean, and taste bad.

Wicker Men "naturally" have this aura of fear. This one will be designed to take advantage of that by being something no one has seen before. Uh, scary enough to scare demons.The yellow orbs will be replaced by screaming mage Sentry Skulls using only psychic and spirit powers to tear the minds of lesser beings apart.So, it's composed of lots of bones and meat, these 5 mage Skulls, maybe instead of a stomach it'll have mound makers shaped as tentacles claws? Have some autism.
>>2712820You know what. This turned out better than I expected. I don't think it'll be effective but happy that it's at least above 30.
>>2712820*writhingLike an undead danger noodle
Monster Week, Monster Week- you sing song it to yourself loudly and proudly. So what is so special about Monster Week? Well, normally when you make things you like to take into consideration safety, dependability, hazard- both biohazards and just.. Service Hazards. "How much of your psychic energy will this take to control? How long will it function for?" None of these matter right now.Because with Mimas -royal- request you've been given leeway to make as dangerous, inhumane, abominations as possible: all the little voices in your head telling you to make horrible, dysfunctional, evil, wretched, creations can be released into the woods in hopes of culling Catherine's forces. Can't be held accountable- you're just doing your job!>>2712736>>Wickermen riding Mammoth Wraiths>Roll 70- It'll do. The first horror actually takes a week or so to make:It's a Frozen Mammoth Wraith with frozen Wickermen bent and woven into 'cages' for it's legs that each contained piled up chilled half mutilated bodies (mostly orcs). The Mammoth constantly spawns irritated Ice Wraiths that come shrieking out whenever it's walked a certain length distance. It's terrible, noisy, and coooool. The best part though is: even when the Mammoth id destroyed the Wraiths will still be haunting the wood unless they're exorcised. >>2712744>I'd like a WinterWight>Roll 93- Good, good. You needed a high roll. You've still got some Ice left and the screaming and yells from the woods haven't stopped, so with Avarices help you gather a rather STRONG looking corpse, have it possessed by several Ice Wraiths, and then seal it together in a suit of frozen ice armor before giving it a bloody massive fuck-off FrostBranded Sword. The moment it animates it starts screaming and running into the woods- fuming, steaming, it's melting discomfort fueling it's rage. You're both amused and very frightened. You know they'll really enjoy that one.>>2712801>Zombies that explode into freezing gas>Roll 84- More than enough.This one isn't very complicated, but is quite possibly the most fun:You dredge up a few dozen Orc corpses and force feed them Wisps. Dozens, hundreds, you really pack them full 'till you have to sew them shut and they're absolutely fit to burst. You then cast Unholy Frenzy on their pulsing, corpulent, glowing bodies and make sure to send them while it's night so they stand out. You actually get to see the results of this one- a frozen almost chandelier like formation of dead white imps having been flash frozen after popping one of your processed frozen pork bombs.2nd inc.
Guess I was too slow
>>2712745>One of those but zombies and each arm and leg has ice bonemeal scythe claws and belches out clouds of Wisps>Roll 85- A little expensive, but you got this one.Next up is a Frozen Zombie Scythipede. Avarice briefly tries to ask, but Eloy and Annie stop him. Nobody wishes to interrupt you during a "Monster Week"- you get into a bit of a crazy mood. Bodies. Lots and lots of dead bodies are sewn together ass to mouth (some a little more damaged than others, so it's more like mouth to stomach), the next step is to then quite methodically hold each and everyone of their limbs so you can Mancy them split open with horrible, clacking, crystalline ice scythes. The limbs split, flay like ribbon, and the bones crack- the ice freezes and crawls up their body hardening them and making their movement stiff and.. "twitchy". You think Catherine will find this one quite offensive given she's a Centipede Demon. Appropriating her species n' wot naught. >>2712820>A giant (not like the city amounts worth of corpses pic I showed earlier.) withering multitenticled abomination created for the sole purpose of inflicting as much madness and unworldly fear as possible.>Roll 50- It'll be tricky.You're running low on the budget of bodies Mimas has sent you and you don't want to dip into your own stock.. You use YOUR reagents for good. Mimas' supplies are for EVIL.... You do, however, notice Avarice and the Hobs trying to kill a Carrion Crawler that has been trying to crawl off with your Carrion. He will be your final piece. You get your Troll Zombie to 'gently' smack him dead. Gently. You then scoop out the creatures numerous eyes and in their sockets place Changeling (they came in the caskets) and a few Orc skulls (they have a jaw-muscle ridge, so not as great a fit). These skulls are then engemmed with polished miasma crystals and enscribed with exactly one spell. Ray of Infirmity. The creature has to be dragged to the wood in a crate, but the dazzling, disco-ball, of squirming, worming, shriveling evil gets in there and causes havok. This particular horror only lasts maybe 3 days- you know this because a few days later you notice the large, blatant, flashing sickly spot lights stop blaring and sweeping out of the wood. That one was fun.
>>2712873We should find more deposits of corpses for more "Monster Week" fun. If we dig deep enough, I wonder if we can find the corpse of a god.
>>2712842>>2712873Aaaannndd... There we go! A regular ol' Monster Mash as our last post for this weeks session! I hope you all had some fun and I'm thankful for everyone who showed up and participated: whether it was to save a roll, flirt with someone, or just to fuck things up- it all adds to the experience! Here are the links same as they've always been and always here for you:Thread has been archived: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?searchall=caster+quest My Art Tumblr: http://spaghettiart.tumblr.com/ I... Don't have anything personal or whatever to say tonight! I dunno, how about.. I recommend: https://youtu.be/iPzso8TvvSU The Animated spellbook- On Youtube! It's a really good non-memey series about unconventional or tricky spell use and I love it and maybe you guys would too?That's all you'll get out of me for this week unless you've got non-spoilery questions for me.
>>2712887Monster week was fun
>>2712887how many demons were killed during Monster Week?
As a form of additional corpse income, I think it would be a great idea to ask our Village and en to save the bones of animals they butcher for us to use.
>>2712887Will we be able to grab Chemmy for important experiments from time to time?
>>2712896>>2713067Behind the DM screen? A few of the Knights were injured, nothing debilitating, but it was a pretty distracting and time consuming experience- the Wraiths are still bothering them and will most likely assimilate into Wood/Barrow Wraiths if they don't solve that little issue. You killed a shit load of Imps though, but they're basically Demon Goblins. You costed Catherine time, money, and meat, and that's what's important.>>2713028>Will we be able to grab Chemmy for important experiments from time to time?Sort of. You can't just pull him out for every little thing, but he'll be around to help when it's important.He may even develop a little Goblin town in there if the place gets big enough/deep enough.
>>2713071I see, i see.... Hmm... We need to come up with some particularly fucky ones next time...Also, seduce Skeeter. Because I mean obviously. Maybe bring our favorite butcher demon with us. they might know eachother or something?
>>2713073and I just feel bad that we're probably fucking her life up over a personal feud with Catherine.Because WE failed a charm roll. Gawd it's like we weren't even trying to bang every cute demon foster peace between species.
>>2713071Are fairies good for anything?We should probably send more wraithsDo the magic casting hobbies know any spells?Can these Wicker Men be added to the undead list?Hey guys what if we pray to Nyx to fix the Shrike?
>>2713389what if we enchant the feather on a swordjust bash and swing enemies of their shadows
>>2713418But who would we fight?What if we can subdue some demons and drain their shadows?
>>2713418Idea!We breakdown our mound makers to make a large mound maker ice bone Construct that's strong enough to capture imps, guards by more of those Winterwights.
Maybe we can enchant a more potent and powerful spell onto an item if we use a frost shard.
