OP, decided between ent ISIS and a second mindflayer quest.
>>
You are Qorixx, a leader among the Unseen, a particularly charismatic example of the species, an exemplar of your kind. You've spent the last twenty years finding others of your kind, banding together in hopes of a better life. You've managed to get 18 adults together, of mixed gender with a slight male majority, and five children.

You've tried settling in more peaceable places, but the inhabitants, upon discovering your true nature, have always driven you out. So here you stand, at the eave of Farald, the ancient, tainted wood. Gnarled trees rise high, casting gloomy shadows. A fitting place for 'your kind'.

There's mountains to the east. You passed through a plain to get to Farald, the dull long grass extending as far as the eye can see to the south.

What will your folk do?

A: Start building shelters.

B: Start exploring.

C: Other, make suggestions.

Roll a d20, highest one wins.

((I have little clue what Unseen are, so if there's already existing fluff on them, do tell.))

Unseen are much like the monsters in Lovecraft as just looking at their real face can cause insanity. So the Unseen have super good magic that can make them look like anything they want depending on the leave of skill.
>Also The Unseen are very good at getting things of weaker will. (Mostly everything) to do what they want.
>>
>>36527
Crit!

Your folk cut down some trees, making a small clearing in the woods, and soon some decent houses begin to emerge. One of your people has experience as a carpenter, so it goes a bit smoother then it might have otherwise.

As an pleasant surprise, your mages manage to put protective wards on your homes. While anything really nasty and powerful can get through, the lesser nasties ought to be kept out.

You decide to get a better feel for the forest. Your explorations take you the length and breadth of the forest... and into a few close encounters with some of it's monsters. You also find a relatively pure river coming down from the mountains on your explorations...

You don't think you explored the whole forest, though. It has many more secrets you must discover if you are to prosper. On another note, one of your villagers appears to be sick.

Your village itself is comprised of ten small houses.

Tough luck.

Your intrepid explorers this time follow the river upstream, to the dark mountains. Your explorers manage to find a reliable way up, although some injuries are taken in doing so.

One of your villagers, a male by the name of Skizzel, approaches you with a request He wishes to contain, experiment, and investigate the 'ill' female and how to heal her. Filled with concern, you say yes.

She is quarantined, and he begins his research. He confirms that it doesn't appear to be contagious, and that she's suffering from nausea and vomiting. He claims to have a theory, but that he'll need another week to determine if it's correct.

Skizzel is pleased at your acceptance, though he gives the ominous warning, "If my theory is correct, we're all going to feel very... stupid."

The week goes by quietly. Food is gathered, although your meager starting sources will run low soon. Wood is gathered, and another house constructed. An angry/insane ghost of the departed tries to force it's way into a house, but is defeated by the wards and then shooed off by your magic users.

Finally, Skizzel comes to you near the end of the week, looking embarassed. He straightens up, coughs, and puts on a serious look. "My lord Qorixx. We are a normally solitary people. We know little of ourselves, and how our own forms operate. We have had little chance, and our deficiency in knowledge is shameful. We don't even have the knowledge to determine when one of us is pregnant."

There's a pause as it sinks in. Then the two of you look sheepishly at each other, and then go to release the woman. Everyone involved makes a pact to forget this ever happened.

What will you do?

A: Build up the village.

B: Explore; Forest, Mountains, or search for a reliable source of food beyond odd berries.

You decide that, since you have confirmed population growth, you should find more reliable food. You recall something odd you saw in the plains as you came near Farald. Following a hunch, you revisit that area.

Your hunch was right.

Lumbering, shaggy beasts twice as tall as a man roam the tall grass, munching peacefully on it. It doesn't take too much effort to get a couple of the docile beasts to follow you back to the village.

The rest of the week is spent making an enclosure for the five creatures, one that will hold them. They ought to give good meat, milk, and hide. You aren't sure, but they might be able to serve as beasts of burden.

You think on your embarrassing incident earlier, and decide you don't want it to happen again. You find Skizzel, an oddly difficult task. You make your request of him, that he look into your own biology.

He accepts with almost indecent haste, and you end up recruiting/pressganging some random villagers for 'test subjects'. Miraculously, none die. Three will need a couple month's rest before they're able to do anything.

You now have a basic understanding of Unseen biology, a foundation to build off of. This will give a slight resistance to disease an an equally slight bonus to healing and recovery.

What will you do next?

You do something you probably should have done when you first arrived, and begin setting up some defenses. You construct a palisade around your eleven house village, leaving plenty of space to build more, with one gap between the two to serve as an entrance and exit.

You decide that it'd be best if you learned about the local fauna. A team stealthily searches the forest near the camp, recording what they find. You now have some knowledge about the habits, lairs, and food sources of the creatures, supernatural or otherwise, in a rough one mile area around your village.

You also decide it'd be best if you knew what exactly you have penned in your village. You discover you have four females and one male among them, and that the females produce a moderately unpleasant, but nutritious, milk. Your workers have begun calling them Tarrax. An experiment proves their worth as beasts of burden.

You decide to focus more on the Tarrax for the moment. Someone gets the bright idea to make some tools to help with them... but nobody seems quite sure what to make.

You decide, after that disappearance, that you need fortification. After a few failed false starts, you get a gate open, and set two villagers to guard it at all times. No one gets in or out without them knowing it. You also set to work on some parapets, and have a couple more villagers patrolling them. The next level of building up adds two more houses for future growth and a town hall.

The enhanced defenses sooth the fear that was brought on by the missing villager, Genxi.

In other news, one of your Tarrax is pregnant.

Your three able mages come to you one day for a council. They look serious. "Lord Qorixx. I'll be blunt, we are vulnerable." An old one nods. "Correct. We need to be able to protect ourselve, especially since new life is growing within dear Eeleeia." You agree with them, and set plans for the research of golems.

To your luck, the local wood seems especially suited to making golems, responding both well and easily to it. Soon you have two dozen wood golems protecting your village, replacing the guards at the gate and parapets.

The people feel very secure and happy, and you can hear the distinct 'Skuvv' sound of Unseen fornication. Seems your mages have gotten lucky tonight...

The votes point towards hiding and seeing what comes out, with a side of illusion to make a big impression. Writing now.

You see it's a caravan of nomadic humans, travelling to some location or another. They seem fearful, casting gazes at the dark forest that is still within view.

An attempt at illusion magic to make a celestial fails horribly, resulting in him looking like a winged, dragonlike demon with a squid face that unnerves everyone who sees it. It's quickly undone, and you decide to just disguise yourself as humans, something you're old hat at.

Your group, resembling humans now, make themselves known and approach.

Some guards level spears at you, wary of meeting others, especially so near Farald. You charm your way in, telling them that you're innocent villagers. The golems are just there for protection, you explain. It works very well since not a word of it was a lie.

The leader, an old man with a grey beard, a staff, and a brown-green robe still remains suspicious. "What do you folk want?" he asks with a heavy accent.

You make an offer. You offer to let them settle down with you, as your people aren't many.

Your charisma seems to have won most of them over, especially the caravan's youths, who seem to think the idea of not moving around constantly is nice. The elder leader seems unconvinced though.

"Who are you, to suggest this? Who are you, to try and change out way of life? How would we truly benefit? Protection? We have our own warriors."

You point out that golems are superior to normal guards, and that you have more golems then they have guards... you also mention that you've got plenty of resources back home.

The caravan is hooked, although the leader is not. However, he comes out seeming like a stubborn old codger. By this point, he can either choose to agree with you and keep some measure of authority and his family with him, or he can leave. He chooses the former.

You send a runner back to the village with news of this, followed shortly by the caravan. A tremendous victory!

Now, how do you accommodate them? Do you stay looking human at all times now?

The journey is decent enough, and you even manages to snag another Tarrax along the way, a lone bull. The caravan folks grow wary as you approach the forest, but you manage to calm them down by saying that you know and are attempting to tame it. There's still some wariness, though...

Soon your lot are at the village. About forty nomads all in all, are unimpressed by the lone hut the villagers have set up by now, outside the palisade. It's a bit strange, seeing humans instead of Unseen about.

You invite them into the village to have a look-see at the village, planning to reveal your true forms to them. Honesty is the best policy, right? So despite the urgings of your mages and advisors, you drop the illusions. All at once.

The humans panic. Swords are drawn, and they look ready to fight their way out of the village.

The scene is ready to explode into violence. Golems are readied, children wail in fear, magic is prepared...

Then an unseen kid walks up to the humans. His mother wails in fear and orders him to come back. He looks at the bemused humans and asks, "Why can't we be friends?"

You, seeing an opportunity, cut in. "Yes, why can't we? We didn't lie to you, we meant every word. We mean you no harm..." Your words are persuasive, and combined with the innocent kid, you win them over. Most of them over.

The leader screams, "They're lying, don't let them get to you!" He charges a golem, which responds in turn. It doesn't end well for him...

There's a silence. You bow your head, in apparent sorrow for his death. Weapons are slowly lowered. Magic dissipates... Thanks to a little kid, now being smothered by his mother, the standoff is over.

You decide that housing the influx is important, and that the palisade can wait. The men get to construction swiftly, living in their tents until all the houses are built. The conditions are cramped, but by the end of the week none have to live in tents. Two disappear mysteriously over the week...

You estimate that there's about forty humans all told. Men, women, children. You find out that they even have a still! It doesn't make that good alcohol, but it's alcohol.

In the middle of the week, just after sundown, you're treated to a lightshow. Mysterious lights, of all colors of the rainbow, bob and weave in the forest, most following no discernable pattern. Many people end up watching it...

One white light seems to stand out to you, as you could swear it seems to be moving in a meaningful pattern... you just can't discern the meaning.

You fucking fools. Did any of you read the actual traits of Unseen? They are physically the weakest, and literally rely on illusions and diplomacy.

Huge emphasis on the part that says we suffer diplomacy penalties if our true form is revealed to non-followers. I guess you could say the nomads are already followers, though. Either way, in the future I think it best to wait until you're certain you've got them charmed before revealing your true form.

The disappearances spur you into action. THe men are growing less and less happy, thanks to both cramped living space and the disappearances. If you don't act, they might leave. So you act. The palisade is extended around the new human homes. Parapet, gate, golem guards, the whole ball of wax.

Your settlement has grown, and some of the mages have asked for permission to make some more golems. Meanwhile, some of the villagers, human and Unseen, think that there should be a town hall. Your food stores have grown strained, as six Tarrax aren't enough to feed this many people. One of them has been slaughtered for meat.

You decide that the food issue is the most pressing matter. You send out some teams of human hunters into the woods. It... doesn't go very well. Four teams sent out. One returns with nothing at all, one member dead and two more injured. One returns with some small game. One returns with a large buck. One fails to return at all...

Some humans are roped into cutting trees down for golems. Three more are made during the week. In addition, two Unseen women appear to be pregnant. The previously pregnant woman, Eeleeia, is becoming obviously pregnant.

You decide to start rationing food, and in a show of good faith both Unseen and Humans have equal amounts of food per person.

You at first thing about trying to make some farms, but quickly run into an obstacle... What are you going to farm? A lack of anything to farm stymies you in that endeavour.

Instead, for now, you seek out Skizzel. You give him permission to 'discover' things about human physiology and pass his disappearance off as just another mystery...

You learn some things from this, the basics of human biology. Skizzel is merciful enough to quickly kill him before cutting him up. His body is buried anonymously in the forest.

You now have the same slight resistance to disease and slight bonus to healing applying to humans as well.

One of your Tarrax has given birth to a healthy calf. In other news, a rumor is spreading among the humans that Unseen only eat special food, labeled 'Yams' by them. Nobody has heard of these before, human or unseen.

Rather then try and deal with the growing shortage of food, you decide to hone and refine your knowledge of illusions. One of your mages suggests study of 'breeding', particularly the breeding of Xorrboz and Feeala. He was promptly whapped on the head and his idea vetoed.

Your knowledge is grown by their experiments and attempts, resulting in a permanent modifier when attempting illusions, increasing your chances of success.

In other news, a human woman has given birth and three humans have taken the still and started an inn near the gates of the village, naming it the 'Jolly Ghost Inn'.

You decide that food is the most pressing matter.

Sending your explorers out, you decide to first find some more Tarrax, over the course of the week finding ten more! Expanding the enclosure is a simple job, and doesn't take long. Although you planned on finding something you could farm, an event ends that plan in it's tracks.

Near the end of the week, at night, everyone is awoken by an ungodly, bloodcurdling howl. Those who look over the palisade see red... eyes? Five of them, in the darkness, in the woods... and all of them higher up then your palisade. Another ululating howl freezes your blood...

It stays there the entire night, just... standing there. Watching. Howling. Preventing anyone from sleeping. Needless to say, nobody gets any rest that night. Or the next night... Whatever it is features in your people's nightmares for a long time.

You decide that, with your inability to really hunt, you should try and get ready to farm. Trees are chopped to make way for fields, extending your clearing quite a ways and giving you a good stockpile of wood. Fields are plowed, stumps are removed. Your preparations go well.

A human, tired of living with two other men, starts building a house for himself.

The villagers are still unhappy, but their discontent is stymied by the fact that you're doing something to solve it.

The legend speaks of the dread sorcerer Malkus, who laid a curse on the people who once lived here, as well as the land itself, millennia ago. Legend has forgotten the hero's name, but it records that he fought with a shining, curved sword.

Then, apparently a scant thirty years ago, he returned to life, and masqueraded as a simple healer among one of the nomad tribes. Eventually he was found out and cast out, and has dwelled in this forest ever since... and with an army of mutated monstrosities at his beck and call.

You decide that this legend, if true, is alarming and of direct interest. You send out parties to try and find this sorcerer's abode, but none of them succeed... you DO, however, find a few old roads and trails. They might lead somewhere...

The debate about what to name the village remains low key, and no decision has been made yet.

What will you do?

A: Build up settlement; more houses or town hall

B:Explore; Forest, Forest Paths, Mountains, Plains

C: Research; Magical, Mundane, Unseen Biology, Human Biology

You decide that further investigation can wait. You order your villagers to begin cutting down wood, and building houses. The worker golems that the mages were working on assist with this, allowing both to go much faster. Within the week, there's enough housing for everyone to live comfortably, even if there's no current room for growth. Your palisades are extended around the new development as well, and a few extra buildings come up without your oversight.

A smithy comes up, a human working it, as does a stable outside of the palisade. The nomads had horses with them, now stabled all in one place.

One of your Tarrax has given birth.

You decide to try your hand at mining, since you apparently have nothing better to do in the last week before the traders get home. You have the smith create some pickaxes and shovels for your miners and send them up into the mountains.

A mine is created, although you haven't gotten any ore out of it yet.

Roll to see how well the traders fared.

You set your workers to work. A town hall is constructed near the center of town, with quarters included for you, Lord Qorixx. A granary is constructed, in which meat and milk is stored.

Some of the younger human males are feeling restless and bored with only laboring. They start take up a few weapons... sensing a potential problem, you nip it in the bud by sanctioning and regulating them as the local guards. Armed with spear and bow, and their leader with a sword, they will defend the town in an emergency.

It's a resounding success, and you understand your own bodies much better, getting a significant positive modifer to resisting disease and healing, as well as an increased fertility rate. You won't be able to research this further until you have more advanced facilities.

You decide to investigate these wolves. What if they attack...? Unfortunately, they almost never show up when you're actually looking for them... And when you actually do find them, intentionally or otherwise, they dissipate into shadow before you can get close enough to... do anything, really. When they dissipate, they leave the person who approached them with a horrible sense of unease... a sense that bears out, as for the next several days they have abysmal luck. One man loses an arm to this luck.

Happiness has decreased, thanks to this.

Lacks a name. The town is surrounded by a palisade with a stone base, and has about sixty houses. Eighteen lumbering, shaggy beasts called Tarrax are kept in an enclosure outside the palisade.

You speak to Skizzel about the possibility of building a house of healing for him to work out of, dedicating to healing. He's enthused by the prospect, and construction begins on it. The unseen he pressganged earlier has become his full time apprentice.

The house is completed just in time, as the day after it's completed Eeleeia is ready to give birth. It's a long process made shorter by the rune on her gravid belly, and late in the evening she gives birth to twins, two healthy baby boys.

some ideas, roll if you like: magic wards against the wolves/spirits, have the mining be dedicated so we dont have to roll for it, search for a nearby river, probably in the mountains, set up diplomatic relations with the nearby village, start building traps so we can domesticate stuff like rabbits and birds, if possible research psionics

You think that Legend that the GM put up has any truth to it? We found the sword that was referenced to the tale.
>>

>have the mining be dedicated so we dont have to roll for it,

but the GM already said the location is shit. We first need to find a better spot and not waste resources mining there.

I'm more worried about the thing that keeps on taking our villagers.
>>

>>48384
I say we should get more domesticatable animals like sheep, goats, and horses. Or research better architecture. We're growing reasonably quickly.
>>
>>48403
>legend
well, we have golems+guards, like i said we could try making magical wards or possibly start training everyone with daily exercise/basic combat
>>
>>48426
messed up the greentext, >>48391 but yeah the legend was probably true, but when did we find the sword?
>>
>>48430

We found it here (>>47518) when we checked out the ruins.
>>
>>48454
>>48430
lets start replicating the swords and enchanting them with runes of fire or strength and such.
>>
>>48454
really? i just thought they were some old swords, i mean the legend said 1 sword
>>
>>48470

I don't know if its "the" legendary sword, but its very similar. Either way, we need more pictures in this thread.
>>
just thought of something, we should plant and harvest nuts for food and to make cooking oils

well, i was planning on finding more animals to domesticate and possibly charm/mutate some

Alright, I'm back. Good discussion!

>>48391
Anon, >>48470
is right. They were old swords, although probably made by the same people the hero was from.

>>48665
I have no clue what that is, but I want it in my thread.

>>48403
Mining anon, it's poor, not absolute shit. You are getting ore out of the mines, but not loads of it.

Looks like Lodwitch wins the name for the village!

offensive magic
>>
>>48798
Offensive magic it is. One moment.
>>
You put plans to connect your village to the world on hold for the moment, deciding you want to have your mages better equipped for action. You have them try and research offensive magic. You get told that they're reaching the limits of what they can do without further books and outside sources... but they think they can do that.

Spring seems to be coming... you'll get a crop soon. The seasons have little power here, though... Also, a cold seems to be spreading among the humans.

What will you do now?

A: Build road

B:Explore; Forest, Ruins, Mountains, Plains.

C: Research; Magical, Mundane, Unseen Biology.

D: Mine.

E:Other.

Confirmed.

>>48867
It's a cold, for pete's sake.
>>
You decide that, in light of the events of the past week, you should begin building that road. It's take three week's worth of effort to connect to the 'main' road.

One week to clear the path of trees, one week to quarry the stone to pave it, and one week to actually pave it.

You spend the week clearing a path through the woods, chopping down trees and upturning stumps.

There's a few monster attacks during this process. You lose one of the human guards and four wood golems, but the work continues and by the end of the week there's a straight shot.

What do you do next? Do you continue, or do something else? (specify)

You decide to make the road to be safer rather then continuing work on it. You consult with your mages on the possibility of warding runes... They pointedly ask what runes they know of to use for warding

Known runes: Force Heat Cold Strength Light Darkness Earth Sky Order Chaos
>>
>>48943
generic monsters. They just represent a random threat I suppose. Probably not anything too dangerous.

Misfortune wolves, parasitic brain ghosts, shadow fiends, and so on.

Rolled 8 (1d20)

>>48945
Order runes I guess? I'm not sure what those actually do but it sounds like it'll make the road orderly. And monsters aren't very orderly, I think.

A great addition to this would be Light, as some of these monsters have a clear connection to the darkness.

looks like a combo of force, light, and order it is.

Choices made... now how do you want to use these runes? Where do you put them?

on golems set to patrol the road.
>>
>>48980
we're talking about the road, so order along the middle and force+light along the edges

Fuck it, just randomly place them on the side of the road. What could go wrong?

:o oh shit

I would set up wooden posts at regular intervals along the road with the rune combo (not only will it help protect the people, but the light rune may also illuminate the path)
