Last time you were blinded by an older Lord. A massive worm who had enslaved a race of lizard men. You were lost and helpless without your eyes, but because of your kindness to your lesser siblings, you were found and rescued. Your mind has merged with theirs, and you can now give them orders as well as see through their eyes. You are a Swarm Lord. You are at the start of a new day, and at the next nightfall your worshiper will start the endentured workers rebellion against the king's soldiers. You may wish to be there to help, if only the enjoy the ripping and tearing. If anybody from the first two quests comes along, I am sorry for the stupidly long wait, life fucked with me pretty good.
>>306461The sun rises. You and your siblings emerge from your newly excavated cave and you look through their eyes at the forest before you. What do you wish to do?>Hunt for Food>Try to find the Lizard Men> Try find evidence of other Lords like you and the worm>Write-in.

>>306553>>306552>>306538You wonder where those little lizard folk have gone. You decide that since you have saved them, you should know what they are doing. perhaps even get some tribute?You mobilize your swarm, sending your siblings out into the woods, flowing towards where they were last seen. It is almost too easy once you arrive. you are actually surprised you didn't find this trail while you were blind. a path of crushed bushes and trodden down grass leads through the forest for a mile or two and finally to a small tend village next to a stream. You have found them alright, but how will you interact with them? >Angry, demand tribute>friendly, just checking in.> curious about their people>write in.

>>306593 > curious about their people
>>306593>friendly, just checking in.>curious about their people
>>306611>>306625You give a greeting chirp, a loud bass croaking. The lizards sitting around a cook fire jump in alarm, staring at you in cautious terror. Your swarm gathering around you, occasionally scuttling out around the legs of the lizard men. Your voice bellows out, asking to see their leader. eventually an older, scarred lizard emerges from a tent and bows before you. "Hello, Swarm Lord. We thank you again for freeing our people." You nod at him, and ask if they are happy with where they are now, and why they left the caves. The elder smiles at you and says "We are finally free to live in under the trees and fishing in our clean rivers, free of that filthy swamp. If there is ever anything you may require within reason, we will do our best to aid you."How do you react?>demanding>happy and grateful>dismissive>Write-in
>>306668We shouldn't go full happy, we should still ask for tribute. Not much either, we don't want to alienate them or anything like that.>Happy, but wanting tribute.

>>306695Changing my vote to this.
>>306695Changing to this
>>306673>>306674>>306679You nod and say that you appreciate then sentiment. Then you stare at the elder, and say "My swarm hungers, and in the future there will be much fighting against the humans, who are destroying our land. I will not always have time to find them food. I ask for a small tribute of game or fish. enough to sustain My swarm. IF your people see any of these humans, you must tell Me, so I may deal with them as they deserve. Finally, if your kind would keep this land as you like it, and have any capable fighters or warriors among you, there will be a fight against their camp this evening. Come to me before the sun sets if you wish to join the combat." Roll me a 2d100. one for food, another for fighting.

>>306739>>306734>>306733The elder stares at you, before nodding. "Our prople need the food we can gather for ourselves, but once we grow more acustomed to this land and our yields grow, we will see what we can do. As for the humans, our people are poor fighters, but I will send four of our best hunters. They will harry the humans with arrows and darts from the trees and bushes. This is the best we can do with our thin numbers.
>>306768Oooh... Vietcong lizard people hunters. They will serve us well.

>>306821>>306813>>306836You think that you can pick off some soldiers early and get a quick snack in too. maybe you could hide some of your brothers and sisters in the human camp to provide you with spies to feed you information.

>>306871>>306875>>30687675,92You make you way to the outskirts of human controlled territory. As you peer through the bushes you see more of the workers, you don't know which would be on your side tonight so perhaps you shouldn't destroy them so carelessly. After some almost discoveries and careful sneaking, you manage to distribute some of your swarm into the shrubbery surrounding the human camp, and find a single guard. a tall man, covered in a shining golden shell, like your carapace. a horse tied to a nearby sapling, as the man relieves himself into a bush.

Slowly you raise one of your claws to strike him with the back side of your scythe like appendage. unfortunately you focused so hard on being quiet you weren't paying attention to the man. He finishes emptying his bladder and starts to turn when you swing, crushing his arm, not knocking him unconcious. His sword arm is shattered, and he has yet to scream. Try to hit again. roll 1d100

>>307029>>30704776 it is. You roar in frustration, scaring the horse and making the man fall down. You quickly strike him again, causing a slightly wet thump and down he goes. Your swarm covers him and lifts him for transport.. but what do you do with the tied up horse? >Write-in. Your choice with this one.
>>307081Nom it, not much else to do with it and I doubt we can ride it.

>>307081Give it as a gift to the lizard men. Besides, they might need it.
>>307100>>307094>>307087You decide to have your swarm restrain the horse too. they struggle at first, but you knock out out and that makes the job much easier. You haul them both back to your cavern. You place the captivity log over the man's legs and tie the horse to a nearby tree to graze when it wakes up. The man starts to slowly wake, and it is time to decide what you want to do with him>Interrogate, about what?> actually, just eat him>Try to convert him to a follower>Creativity option, make something up.(By the way, I really wanted to see what you lot would do with the horse.

>>307154>>307153>>307145You wait for the man to wake. Finally he opens his eyes and looks up at your towering form looming over him. You see the fear in his eyes and you choose this moment to reveal that you can speak. "Tell me, mortal, Why have your kind come to my forest? What do you know about this land?" 'What do you know of treachery in your camp?" "Have you ever heard of my kind before?" Roll me 1d100 for effectiveness.

>>307202>>307186>>307192Lucky lucky. One of these days bad things will happen, I am sure of it.He whimpers, all attempts at bravery gone. He tells you that the king is using disposable workers that nobody cares about, such as the homeless, prisoners, and other such undesirables, to clear out this forest to try and remove any threats from creatures that live within and also give him more land to use for farming or building towns and cities. They suspect rebellion from the prisoners but nothing in particular has been noted, though there have been a few of the stranger ones praying to an unknown deity. as for your kind, it is common knowledge that strange giant creatures are sometimes born one way or another, and are often hunted for sport by the rich if they are small enough. the larger are hunted by the military to dispose of them.Do you>devour him to get your energy up, you are getting hungry after all>Try and make him a worshiper, but rather unlikely, to him you are just a monster>give him to your Swarm,>Your choice, write in.

>>307306>>307291>>307289You do not like this man. he is full of both terror and contempt with you. This angers you and you decide that he must learn today. You grab his shattered arm in its golden metal sheathe between your mandibles. You give a sharp tug, and with a sound of rending metal and ripping flesh you tear off his arm. he screams as you begin to try and eat his armor plated arm. Roll me a 1d100 to see if you are strong enough to eat plate mail. This will be a permanent thing. can or can you not eat metal. it can be improved later. DC is 70 at lowest.

You crunch through the armor and swallow his arm, then turn you gaze on the rest of him. He shudders and begs, snot bubbles and tears covering his face as you remove the log and set about eating all of his limbs. leaving a screaming bleeding torso with a head. Finally you crunch down what is left and you are almost sated.

>>307393>>307384>>307381very close, but no cigar. Sorry chaps. The time has come. You wake and realize that you still hunger, but with any luck, not for long. As your swarm leads you from the cave you notice four little lizards, armbands and tunics covered in leaves and branches to conceal them, standing out front of your cave, one of them admiring the horse you have there.You tell them that it is time, (Do you also tell them they can have the horse, perhaps for their aid in this matter?) As your troops get closer to the camp, you hear sounds of battle. finally clearing the treeline you see tents and building on fire, people shouting in confusion, it seems like the fight has just started. You see a guard shove his sword through the chest of a worker who ran up to ask him what was happening, the guards don't seem to be worried about who they kill. What do you do?>Let them fight each other to the end then mop them all up>Charge into the fray and reap them>carefully pick off guards here and there>use your hidden swarm to assassinate all they can and cause confusion before you and the rest enter.>write in.

>>307446>>307450>>307451Your siblings emerge from their hiding places and jump on anyone nearby, devouring screaming workers and guards alike.As you and the majority of your swarm go around the outskirts of the fight picking off more guards, taking a bite here and there to sate your growing hunger. Occasionally you see an arrow or two fly from a bush and puncture a throat or face, killing a guard. Once you even saw a running guard, armed with a large spear take an arrow through his heel, bringing him down. as he tried to crawl away, little reptilian forms grab his legs and haul him screaming into a bush. finally you see tattered green banners with a poorly drawn beetle on them being waved over a particularly cohesive group of rebels, fighting the guards. >roll 1d100 for how well the fight is going, and tell me, do you join the fray to help them or just stay on the outskirts?

>>307499>>307516Ok, just the two of you this time.You roar, your rage building as you see your followers being slain from the eyes of your swarm. You hit the fray like a storm of death. Bodies everywhere. Some guards are pulled down and taken apart by the angry chattering tide, others crushed and scythed in half by your massive bulk. You see your cultist crowing with delight as he thrusts a wicked dagger into the throat of a begging guard, grinning like a mad man as his blood gushes onto the ground. A larger than average knight rides at you on his warhorse, leveling a lance towards you. Roll a 1d100 for defence and another for attack. How do you defend from the lance and how do you strike at him?

Your swarm converges on the horse, devouring its legs in moments. it collapses onto the ground where it is stripped of flesh by the swarm. Your laugh turns into a hearty chuckle as your scythes swing downward, lopping off his left arm. His right swings up with a pick hammer, just barely cracking through your chitin. Enraged you swing again taking his left leg. You siblings begin to surround the man, taking bites of exposed bits between his armor or feasting on his severed limbs. You lower your mandibles and crush his torso. He emits a gurgling scream as you drop his mangled body into your maw.Much better. You survey the fight, and it is looking like an easy win. You have almost driven the guards to extinction and only scattered fighting is left.Your cultist runs up to you, grinning in his mad way, and says "my Lord we have done it! do my actions please you? I have converted these men around us to also worship you radiance! We will follow you to the death and do as you command!"

You eat flesh, bone, armor, weapons, everything. By the time the sun begins to rise not even blood is left to stain the ground. all have been devoured. The only things you didn't get to eat were the scalps and fingers taken by the lizard men as trophies of their combat, as well as a body or two to feed their tribe. One you finish, the sun is rising. You heave your swollen bulk back to your cave, your swarm guiding you and your cult following behind. You fall into a deep slumber andRoll me 1d100 for bonuses! its easier with all that food.

There are even monsters, giant and cruel. but you do not fear. For at your chest the Asteroid glows. bright green and warm, it heats your body, filling you with its protection and love. You grow warm. Too warm. You are burning. You are burning but you like it. The green fire of the Asteroid is molding and heating you, forging you into something better than you were.You wake, seeing the cavern around you through the eyes of your swarm. You are different. You feel the power of your asteroid thrumming against your chest and as you flex, your scythes and mandibles erupt in a green flame. a cultist walk into the cave, bringing firewood to the back to try and start a cookfire with his brothers. You snap your eyes face in his direction and he screams, writhing as the burning green holocaust ignites him and in an instant he and his load are nothing but carbon. a slight breeze blows past and he is gone, blown away like a memory. You may now use the power of the Asteroid which created you to ignite a target with caustic green flames once a day. The fire burns extremely hot and extremely fast, almost just a flash of green light, causing insane destruction.

You take the horse, and a few the cultists captured the night before, and have a few of your cultists lead them to the lizard men camp. You present them to the elder, who now wears a cape made of human scalps, and he accepts them with glee. In return he offers you some gems they had found or stolen over the years and kept hidden. You do not sense magic in them, but they are good to look at. Your cultists take the gems back to the cave as the start of your spoils of war. You get the feeling there will be much more to add in the future.>>308267No, you see through the eyes of your swarm, but without them you would be entirely blind.
