>>565376Faction: Dragonfist ClanThe Dragonfist clan (originally the Mutt Clan) Used to be a band of goblins and humans raised on the the streets that turned into farmers thanks to Mutt Dragonfist. The Mutt an urchin turned soldier managed to kill a dragon with one punch allowing his clan and his dynasty to be respected among the Roggarians. The Dragonfist Family isn't the richest nor the most powerful but they still are respected after all this years due the continuous effort of many members of the Dragonfist family and because of all the food they produce thanks to their priestly hunters and farmers. Muttville, the Fortress island is still an essential river port of Roggar and all the temples that exist around the Feudal lands of the Dragonfists make their land a place that all adherents to the pantheon need to visit. Assets: Dragonfist millitia, Dragonfist soldiers, horses, human and goblin farmers, Muttville and it's fortress, Temple of Divata, Smokyton and the surrounding farms,Temple of Zemel, Duchy of the Fork, Altodominio , Order of the Dragon, Priestly hunters and farmers.
>>565376I. Let's help Paitras, I wanna test out my new artefact.
In ages past men lived simpler lives - they would hunt, farm, fight and always respect the might of the Old Gods. Shamans led the clans with their elemental magic - so it was for many generations, before history was ever written down. The great hero Rog united a dozen human clans into a tribe that would form the foundation of our future Kingdom.One day Rog mysteriously vanished - then came the Great Storm - when it passed, the shamans could no longer feel the presence of the Gods and had lost the source of their magic.Our civilization would have to progress on its own and so for generations we worked the lands, expanded in numbers and territory. We adopted goblin miners, fought dragons and welcomed a demonic warband. Adventures were had, technology progressed as we explored more and more of the world, largely adopting the faith of the New Gods of the Pantheon.The Second Horde War was a terrible conflict, mirrored by a civil war within our Kingdom - in its process the mighty Kingdom of Paitras fell and our own Kingdom was greatly damaged, with the city of Nayte and its surroundings being anhilated, ending the lives of all our denizen demons.After the Second Horde War the Norsemen were united into an Empire and we've been fighting them ever since. We've had both victories and losses, with the Ice Dragons being a mighty asset to the norsemen.We've expanded eastwards into two former provinces of Paitras, but in the most recent years that Kingdom has been reborn under the ruler of Ezgielath, Verigal.Most recently, the continent is in turmoil as wars are fought on many fronts - together with the Halflings we successfuly invaded the Ishlarg Kingdom to the south, commiting genocide upon its ruling ogres. Paitras is fighting on two fronts, against the norsemen in the North and the Barbarian King in the south, while our own southern provinces are being raided by centaur hordes from the steppes.Now the expedition from the east is returning, while another one is preparing to journey far south, to the homes of the lizard people.
>>565376>D.MilitaryExpedition story: While Volkmar was walking around the Barbarian King's capital and thinking about how much he hates OGRES he was ambushed by an ogre thug, he put a valiant defence but when the ogre pulled out his fishing rod he was unfortunately beaten and the last words he said before passing out were:"It's just a prank bro."He later woke up win a tavern robed of all his belongings. For just a moment his hate towards OGRES wavered while he was raging about the ORC but eventually he realised that he still hates OGRES more than orcs but they are now a close second.
>>565376>E.Government & lawsCouncil seat hype, need council seat for magic in particular.
>>565400>>565376Change it into I and help Paitras

>>565376Faction: Red Centaur KhanateThe Red Centaur Khanate was born of divergenges with the free centaurs to the south.They joined the Kingdom in hopes of getting away from the claws of their wild cousins to the south.They are united under the Red Stalion, a leader elected by menbers of the khanate to further their interests as vassals inside the kingdom.Is that good for a faction description?
>>565414Duke Adolf of the Godric welcome you and want to start some trading and marriages between our factions. Would you agree to this? In the trading you get metals and alcohol and honey, that will be useful to make armor and weapons.
>>565376Fishermen on the Longfork River have whispered of strange things since the destruction of Nayte; now, these whispers are shouts. A swarm of lunatics have settled in the furthest south-east forest in the realm of Roggar.The first generation were merely magic-sensitive men and women whose minds were fried by the magic unleashed at Nayte; sadly, the madness is all their children will ever know, along with their own myriad of issues, physical and mental.Following the events within the portal at Nayte Crater, the unusally competent leader known as "Manman" failed to return. Not knowing (or perhaps caring) why, the drug-addled lunatic Barnaby declared himself leader of his fellows.In the reign of Nick Ashwood, Barnaby somehow became Royal Admiral, and promptly ignited several Yalmfrid trade ships on suspicion of swampweed smuggling. In the year 251 he was imprisoned for decade by reason of arson, and spent one day a week smoking swampweed with a man named Lee, who acted as his temporary replacement. In addition, he appeared to believe he had successfully seduced the halfling Palidi Moxstep, a delusion which she refused to comment on.After his release, Barnaby exhibited anger issues possibly related to withdrawl due to the long term swampweed reduction, and experimented with various methods to recapture his "buzz". He died in the tragic sinking of Project Weedboat's maiden voyage.He was swiftly replaced by a shadowy figure with an apparent affinity for alchemy, who was never seen by the rest of the kingdom. He spent his life researching an unknown project; upon his death, the village of Riverhugger celebrated the first ever Timor's Eve.Not long after, a young man naming himself Thuzad bullied his way into power. Despite his clean and charming exterior, he harbors dark thoughts within.Assets: -Thuzad-Medium sized group of mad people-The 'town' of Riverhugger-Riverhugger Iron Mine-Improved ???????

>>565424>D.Attack the Norselands>H.Other: Help rebellion in the northFirst some info from my time up north:There's no more than a score adult Ice Dragons at presentThey ackgnowledge Ledevlast(norse human) as their leader. The dragons gain mana from worship and sacrifice that the Norsemen provide them and in return they bestow part of that mana to norse priests who use it for magicWe still have people inside the norse land. There are some that oppose the dragons, with more support we have a chance at getting some of the people to rise up. Still from my understanding it would have been easier to do this before, but there is still a chance that this might work.I suggest we go for taking the regions by the sea, going inland would not bode well for us, the terrain is quite harsh. Also it is of great importance that they do not know that we are coming. Last time my father, Knut, was killed when the dragons attacked us at sea...
The People of Rogger are angry. They are sick of not having respect, low wages and little rights. They feel marginalized and left behind compared to the other groups. So one man arrived. A man of great influence who spoke what they wanted to hear. Now The Paitrots have risen and cites would burn and kingdoms will fall in their nameAssetsCastil2000 menCorvus Sigmond (great orator)

>>565424To clear things up.It's A Godric Male marrying the Daughter of the leader of this new faction.
>>565455Are the godrics the Freys from this world?
It looks like A & F are favored.Currently we've raised 12 Legions and 11 Banners(2k soldiers each), who are defending our borders in the north and south - on the northern border it's mostly the troops we left on the home front at the start of the war, while on the southern border the armiy that recently conquered Ishlarg was recently stationed and scored a victory against the centaurs in the defence of Poruan.So, how do we go about this?A.Attack the centaurs to the south with our main army firstB.Split our main army between attacking the centaurs and helping PaitrasC.Help Paitras firstD.Send a small force to help Paitras while we focus on the centaursE.Other

>>565469Duke Duke Swift-Hands would pass away peacefully in his sleep at the age of 60. He had been the pillar that supported Goboppolis ushering in a age of expansion, faith and wealth. The Temple of Mor was his magnum opus and would stand tall above Gobopolis for centuries to come. In the temple of Mor a great funeral would be had to honor his life and accomplishments. All Roggarians would be invited to attend.The city itself would be enraptured with celebrations and feasts for the late Duke. Various tournaments would be held to show off the many artisans of gold that worked in the city and a great tournament would be held. The Winner would be gifted a Goblet of Gobbo, forged from pure gold and adorned with jewels.
>>565547Could outsiders participate for the Gobbo Cup
>>565547His middle son Bonebiter would take the mantle of Duke vowing to lead Goboplis with honor and integrity as his father once had. A fierce warrior and zealous believer he would surely bring great change to Gobopolis.Duke Bonebiter Swift-HandsAge 21Warrior/Faith

Rolled 4 (1d5)Legions 1,2 and 3 did the best in the war and their soldiers gained the most experience and trust in their leaders.The Fifth Legion suffered the most losses, among them was their original Legate, Finn Hawthorne II.Adolf of Godric(Inky) - First Legion - veteransSinep II(Aristo) - Second Legion - veteransVolkmar the Grim(Erden) - Third Legion - veteransRanger Grandmaster - Fourth LegionWar Councilor(Centurion) - 5th Legion Trusted Adviser - 6th LegionDragonking Hawthorne(Hare) - Seventh LegionDragonfist(Mariandale) - 8th legionVasentis(through his Regent Gaius Marcellus) - 9thWhitevayne(Millenium) - 10thWar Councilor(Centurion) - 11Markolf of Creyl(Dust) - 12These are the Legates, if you want to participate in the army you could send a character from your faction to be a centurion under one of the Legates - if your Legate dies you might be in line to take his position.We could leave one or two Legions to guard the homefront while the rest are leading an attack into centaur lands - for that I want volunteers. We could send all the Legions to attack otherwise.Now, we have a total of 11 available Banners at present, Banners are made up of militia troops and they are usually partnered with a Legion and from their ranks the losses of a Legion are recovered.I will make a 1d5 roll to see how many new Banners we manage to raise.Now, we're going to send a few Banners to help Paitras(unless somebody volunteers their Legion for the task). How many should that be?From One to Ten, vote.
>>565547I will attend the funeralThe passing of a great person is always a sad event.Let the legacy of Swift-Hands not be forgotten.
>>565547Express my sorrow and offer my condolences but explain how i must prepare my legion for the upcoming campaign and i won't be able to make it in time. In my stead i will send my youngest brother,Dietger, who is quite interested in art in all of its forms(except war unfortunately).
>>565567Send 3 of the fresh legions to handle the Norse.
>>565547I would also like to attend the funeral and give a speech in his memory.
>>565567Duke Bonebiter will take his best men and join up with the First Legion6 Banners to Patrias
>>565567Are all of the armed forces outside of Rogger right now, No one left to defend if something bad haplenes?
>>565567Petitioning for the three Fresh Legions to Guard the coasts and prevent a pincer Maneuver from the Northmens. It is CRITICAL to defend ourself from Invader and raiders from the Sea.
>>565579>>565567Change to command of the 7th legion
As the leaders of the 1st and 7th Legions are away on an expedition to the lizard lands, their positioins may be taken by others.
>>565547I will attend the funeral>>565587My brother will lead
>>565567We should send 10 legions and 10 banners to attack the centaurs, 2 legions and 2 banners to defend dragons tomb and 3 banners to help Patitras. This is my plan.
>>565587I Volunteer for the First as a fellow Duke and Strong Vassal.
>>565567I wish to send my brother to join the army in inkys legion along with 10% of my total soldiers to reinforce it
>>565587Duke Bonebiter will command the 7th in absence of the King.
>>565587It's only fitting if my Brother led the 1st Legion to fight back the others
>>565602>>565587I recommend Duke Bonebitter for one of the positions as commander.
Wolfe Godric will lead the 1st while Duke Bonebiter will lead the 7th.I'll make the decision now - 5 Banners will go to Paitras(10 000 men), Banners are not player controlled so I'll make a roll for that later.We've got 12 Legions and 10 Banners left.We must decide how many will be left to defend the northern coastlines and how many will go south.Legions are of higher quality than Banners and are player-controlled.If anybody wants, they can volunteer their Legion to stay on the defense. Otheriwse we could just leave some Banners at home.Decide on this now, make final preparations, because on the first day of the 5th month of 318 the army marches south.
>>565613Leave to legions at home to defend and two banners.Defend against the Norse men in Dragon's Tomb
>>5656132nd Legion, "the Hands".Will go to the Centaur front, led by Sinep the Younger, wielding a powerful artefact
>>5656132 legions 4 banners should stayAll other on the attack
>>565622I meant leave two legions at home
>>565613The glorious 10th And the 5th Will head to Paitras under my command
Rolled 22 (1d100)The 9th Legion will defend the capital and the coastline along with 4 Banners.5 Banners will be sent to Paitras11 Legions and 6 Banners ( a total of 34 000 troops) will head into centaur lands.The orders are given, preparations are being made and soon we will be on the march..
NOTE: The 6th Legion also decided to stay at home.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aHbXHIrpq6sOur troops entered the open steppes. A large army with a large baggage train, it stretches a large distance and is easy to spot. The centaurs have been evading us, early on they noticed our coming invasion and moved their closest camps away, while our outriders and our supply lines have been constantly under attack in the past week since we entered enemy territory. We haven't faced them in a single open battle yet.We are approaching Heraclea, the place where close to two centuries ago our ancestors fought against the centaurs in a drawn out and bloody battle with no clear victor.We need a strategy for this campaign or we'll just run out of supplies without having fought the enemy once.
>>565666Let us Build a Camp and Reinforce our supply lines before lauching an assault.Send false Centaur Defectors to Trick them into Traps and Archer Ambushes.
>>565666Blitzkrieg maneuvers. If the centaurs don't have proper organization and just stick to gorilla warfare, we can flank them and encircle them, whilst our troops continue into the plains. Set up forts and camps to hold our troops and foods at random intervals into the terrain. Spread our legions evenly across the front.
>>565669Also, we need to predict the raids correctly, so let's get some reconnaissance out. They can't be operating without orders.
>>565666We should construct a chain of wooden ring forts moving our way deeper into the Steppes allowing us to great a solid supply chain
>>565670One more thing, can we have a detailed map of the centaur lands?
>>565666My plan is more riskier but more rewarding i would say. Mash our Centaurs into one big group and use them to catch the other centaur in an engament, then come with army and flank them. We need to utilise our centaurs and cav to neutralise their speed advantage. The plan thath the others are suggesting is going to prolong this engagement for too long and we have other front to worry about.
>>565671>wooden forts>on a highly flammable steppe>with tons of horse archers>finding wood in a steppeI see no problem with this idea
>>565689China's been doing it for years.Fire isn't a problem when you're got mens inside the camps and cavalry.Any attempt at starting a fire will get you fucked by cavalry.
>>565689>wood catching fire from arrows easily>Not bringing it from the stepping stone forts on the forested edge
Rolled 35 (1d100)We will construct a series of wooden forts that connect to our lands and will act as stepping stones for this invasion.
>>565696>using arrows>bring wood hundred of miles to build a fort>not seeing a problem with this
Transporting wood to the steppe was the first problem, as little could be found in the area. Then there was the fact that we had to stop, build a fort and continue. It's been a month since we started and the enemy hasn't stopped raiding our supply lines(though they should be more stable now). What we do know though is that they've used this time to move their camps, with all their civilians, further into the plains, while we've barely made any progress. Our main base camp is Fort Heraclea, located near the old battle site.What should we do now?A.Pray for guidance from StomanB.Continue with our strategyC.Abandon this invasion and go homeD.Other
>>565725AI guess I was right
>>565725>D.OtherBranch out forts line And heavily reinforce the previous forts.They won't know which fort line to raid.
>>565732And use more wood? That's the problem in the first place
>>565725>D.OtherPull a trojan on their asses, make it seem like we are retreating but leave one legion to defend the fort and bait them into attacking,once they start sieging we turn around and flank them. If we do this plan i volunteer me and my legion.
>>565725>A.Pray for guidance from Stoman
>>565736there's plenty of wood and plenty of mens to cut it down.
>>565725D. Drawing up a new plan now.
>>565740He just said wood is a problem
>>565743Because we rolled low, but we have some things setup now.
>>565740>>565743There's plenty of wood, the thing is we have to send men back to the forests(dozens of kilometers away) to cut it down and then have it shipped back. And the further we go in, the bigger that distance gets
>>565747So if we roll high, we will magically get wood and transport it farther away
>>565746>>565738>>565735>>565727>All these people believing praying will make the enemy vanish.>>565749Time is not an issue supply lines is.
Maybe just dig a bunch of holes for the centaurs to fall in?
>>565755That's an Amazing Idea.PUNGI STICK TRAPS AROUND THE SUPLLY LINES.
>>565754>QM says that's the issue>no I'm right anywayOk
>>565737This sounds good
>>565754>literally saying HERESYCome on. The god will answer us either way.Even if you come out with the best strartegy in the world a low dice roll will stump it so may as well pray
>>565755>digging holes over multiple kilometers>big enough to trap centaurs
>>565755FUCK digging bunch of holes for centaurs to fall they will jump over it. Fuck off Frankly if your not making a faction. Only Head and Honey rules here.Signed by Duke of HoneyThis is for Spook Quest. :^)>>565737This
>>565769Fall trap with dead grass over it is totally DEADLY
>>565737>not them just surrounding us and lighting the walls on fire>getting back in time
>>565774Inqui please stop shitposting,My legion is a veteran one, they are tough as nails and the aren't going to burn shit you literal Pleb. How are talking about this, you are not in the legions?
>>565780Okay, so they won't manage to burn the fort while you have no support and you will get back in time to save them? For the last time, I'm not him
>>565788>You write like him>you have the same shitposting styleEverybody knows who you are Inqui you are just annoying me at this point.
>>565793>just calls me names>doesn't prove why his strategy is better
>>565742OK, here's a very rudimentary plan. Imagine that red line as our border. If we send out troops back to our land, along the plain border, we can send them around the guerilla line of the centaurs, and once fully around, we can encircle them, which our yellow line represents. We split up our legions, some in the forts, some in the encirclement. As their being pushed into a tighter pocket by our encirclements men, our fort men can ride out and join, crushing them and taking civilians as hostages. We just need a broader front to operate better. If we do this rinse and repeat we can finally gain some advantage.
>>565796What? I said we pull a trojan. The army will be nearby ready to attack when the centaurs start sieging you slowakian shitpost.
Hey, I want to make a bunch of high elves that are married to those Godric guys. Gimmie dat honey, babe.
>>565798Okay, what about logistics of thus
>>565800I agree to the marriages friend, my son can marry your daughter.
>>565799Okay, so they won't check to see where our army is? Where will we hide it on flat land?
>>565804For now, we need to endure the harassment until our legion men can encircle. Once encircled, we can continue usual supply routes and have an actual front to reinforce at, supply and have a central command for our divisions.
>>565814Okay, how will we be fast enough to in circle them, with no supplies and them not noticing
>>565809There are some forest nearby, the centaurs can't scout deep into our teritory and a roman march can go 20 miles in 5 hours with full eqipment and we are not even 20 miles apart from the forest.
>>565817Obviously by moving within our borders, which are outside their element. They wouldn't dare risk stopping the harassments, so they'll pay no attention to retreating men. Once fully around them. We can continue encirclement.
We've prayed to the Gods of the Pantheon for guidance.One day, as the Legates are assembled the leader of the Blades of the Pantheon, the militant religious order we founded almost 30 years ago, speaks up."I have recieved a vision from Stoman. It led me to discover a bronze axehead buried in the ground here in Heraclea - it is from the legendary battle that was fought here between our ancestros and the centaurs of the day. This is a holy artefact. We must build a great temple to Stoman on the site of the battle and on its altar we shall lay this Holy Axehead.

One of the smaller forts was set aflame when centaur shamans used their war magics in a large attack, but by the time reinforcements arrived the enemy had withdrawn.Since the start of the centaur campaign two months ago we've lost 3500 of our original 32 000 troops and we haven't even faced the enemy in open battle. Supply lines are under constant danger and we've been rationing our food for a while now.

>>565940Commander Whitevayne led 3000 men away from the battlefield, headed for Paitras.The centaurs attacked his column once , which resulted in 300 casualties, but once they saw that he was leaving their lands they ceased their attacks.This action was authorized by the Dragon Commander, Duke Dragonfist, who is the highest-ranking military official present in the King's absence.Now it seems the remaining 25 500 troops will attempt to feign retreat, they will try to draw the centaurs in for an attack and turn around to fight.Commanders of the remaining army, give me 3 rolls and the average is the result.

Rolled 22 (1d100)Suddenly horns are sounded and the centaurs give a rousing cheer as reinforcements arrive, bearing red banners and human skulls mounted on spears - these are the elites, the fighters of the legendary Khan Ebamaati, "The Skullcrusher" - the centaurs of the steppes are not united in one nation, but it is said that this Khan is the first in many generations who could do that, as he is both respected and feared by all other clans.With his heavily armored centaur elites he charges through our lines as the tide seems to be turning in the enemy's favor.Dragon Commander Mutt II Dragonfist and his 8th Legion were leading our advance until then and now our Dragon Commander finds himself facing the Khan. The centaurs around him clear the area - it seems this is important to them.The Khan comes forward and points his spear towards Dragonfist "Human Khan, you will fight me and you will die. Your men will know despair, your army will know defeat!"The Khan charges forward

Mutt dodges the thrown spear with ease. The Khan takes another spear from a nearby centaur and charges in.Mutt lunges diagonally to the left, his sword stabbing the Khan straight in the chest. From the impact the sword is knocked out of Dragonfist's hand and he himself just barely manages to not fall on the ground. As he turns around, he sees the centaur's knees have buckled and he is not moving. The Dragon Commander walks over to him and pulls the sword out of the Khan's chest.The Skullcrusher falls down, lifeless. A series of horns are sounded, after which the centaur elites reform, take the Khan's body with them and withdraw.

>>566282Union with Paitra when
It seems the Barbarian King got overconfident after his victory at Sekalath. He divided his forces under his generals and sent them in various directions. In the West the ogres were met by 12 700 Roggarian troops fighting alongside the Free Mountaineers, while in the east the Dwarves crushed the Dovoni army.The Barbarian King himself is yet to face defeat on the battlefield though. His main force of orcs and minotaurs is occupying the city of Sekalath at present.In the north, King Verigal of Paitras is locked in a stalemate against the Norsemen - most of the Paitran fleet has been lost and the high elves supposedly only have ships in the eastern sea, from where they come. The city of Archeport is currently the main base of operations for the norsemen, while the Paitran army is camped at the city of Mositan a day's march south.We've got 11 000 troops stationed on the Paitran Front, with Commander Whitevayne of the 8th Legion being the highest-ranking officer of our military there.In Roggar we've got 11 Legions and 6 Banners in total, counting both those who fought in the south and those who defended the north.It is the height of summer, 318.A.Rest our weary troops, raise more Banners before heading to fight against the Barbarian KingB.Rest our troops and raise more Banners before heading to fight the Norse, while leaving Whitevayne and his attached Banners to keep the Barbarian King containedC.March on the Barbarian King with everything we have now(leaving a small force to defend the home front, of course)D.March to help against the Norsemen with everything we haveE.Other

Rolled 25 (1d100)Our march east was undisturbed, there have been just about no raids on our shorelines and news from the south indicates that the Barbarian King is still contained in and around Sekalath.It is late summer and we've arrivedd on the frontline - a hellish landscape stretches in the lands that have seen multiple skirmishes and battles. The norsemen control the port cities of Ozdeman and Archeport, while the city of Mositan that lies in the middle is protected on both sides by Paitran forces, forcing the norsemen to rely on their ships for supplies.We've arrived with 28 000 troops.King Verigal commands 45 000 men on the western side of the river, while the Count of Mositan defends the eastern side with 10 000 men.We believe that the norsemen have between 50 and 70 thousand ground troops in total, but they also have the support of Ice Dragons.It seems neither side is in any rush and that's good news, because it'll leave us a bit of time to rest. It seems we're getting reports from the expedition into lizard lands...
While war was raging on the continent, those who decided to journey to the lizard homelands had an adventure of their own....Well, this sucks. The ship got into a storm as it was heading south along the coastline, but at least we the expedition members escaped intact, sans a few sailors. Our ship crashed into the coast just south of the Lizan Colony in the Ogrelands.Members of the expedition - one War Councilor, Pontiff Thuzad, Ranger Grandmaster, Duke Desfak Yalmfried and his son, King Conaire Hawthorne, Duke Adolf Godric, some nameless sailors(everyone else controlls these).Well, what now?A.Try to recover what we can from the ship's wreckageB.Head back homeC.Go to the lizan colonyD.Head south by land

The colony is filled with activity, with plenty of new arrivals from the homeland and constant construction of new houses and facilities. The vast amount of ogres that were sold into slavery boosted the town's development greatly and the harbor is always busy - it doesn't take long to find a ship headed for Gajaxlan. There's just enough room for our party to squeeze in - the ship is also transporting at least two dozen ogre slaves.Paying for the trip will be a bit tough though, as we have very little actual money on our hands.

Our party visits the palace in the morning.Guards with spears greet us and direct us to the "Waiting room".We take seats on the stone benches there and after a few minutes a female lizan arrives, with a stone tablet in hand. She asks us a few questions - our purpose here, where we come from, how we got here."Very well. Proceed to the office of foreign affairs, it is in the main hallway, keep to the right and you'll see a sign showing two clasped hands."After we eventually find this "Office" we are greeted by a brightly-dressed lizardman."Greetings, I am Foreign Affairs Chief Chuxjiab.

Slaves go in and slaves come out, that's what you saw.>>567516>>567527>>567538>>567555You attend a public sermon in the Temple Square, pertaining to history."In ages past The Old Gods ruled the Mortal Plane from their seats in Heaven with a hard, but just hand. Their firsborn children on the Mortal Plane were the dragons, who made our people in their image through divine power. For many centuries the mortal races of this world existed in harmony with nature and the Gods, before the Great Elven Betrayal, which led to the Great Storm. The Old Gods, in order to preserve the stability of the Planes, fell back into their primordial states of existance and bestowed their roles upon the Dragons, while the Custodians of Heaven and Hell remained in their places to handle the souls of the deceased. Today some in the Northern lands worship those Custodians as Gods, but they are corporless servants of the Old Gods, unworthy of prayer, whereas the Dragons are living, yet ageless beings of great power. Tomorrow those who are doubtful will witness the divinity of Techeneh, our Patron Water Dragon. Praise be upon him and his brood!"A.Visit the temple on the third dayB.Visit taverns, marketplaces and various other locations across the cityC,Time to head home>>567571You get beaten up, robbed, gutted and thrown into the water for messing with some local gang's turf.

>>569695The primary subrace of lizardfolk that inhabit Gajaxlan are the lizan, who are probably the most humanlike in appearance in terms of their general frame. With that appearance they tend to find less trouble dealing with other races and as such the lizan dominate foreign trade, while culturally they are more tolerant towards outsiders.Another major subrace that we had encountered through trading are the lazdrevk(pictured), who tend to be larger, with more predatorial features, which is reflected in their more martial culture. What defines the lizardfolk race is that all its subraces can breed with each other, but they can't produce children with any other species. Lizardfolk lay eggs, though in some ways they bear features more common for mammals than reptiles - particulary among the lizan.We decide to visit the Grand temple on the next dawn. The Patron Dragon of the city will make an appearance and perhaps adress the citizens who attend the great sermon, which is performed every two weeks, coinciding with the new moon and the full moon - it's a new moon right now(evenening).As our party is gathered, we must decide - what will our goal there be?A.Be humble attendees and don't step out of line, listen to the sermon in its entiretyB.Seek to learn from the priests before/after the sermonC.Seek to learn from the dragon before/after the sermonD.Other

Rolled 55 (1d100)From start to finish the sermon lasts about two hours. In the first hour the priests read from their holy scriptures, telling the tale of the days of The Great Empire, which stretched across the warm seas and all their tropical islands and coastal regions. In those days the Old Gods ruled from Heaven, aided by their Custodians, ethereal beings bound to the Planes of Heaven and Hell, who help guide the souls of the dead. The Old Gods created the first intelligent beings on the Mortal Plane to uphold balance in nature - the dragons were the most supreme of the Old Gods' Children, as rulers of the skies, while the lands and seas had their own great magical beigns. The mortal races of lizardfolk and elves built the first great civilizations, while dwarves and gnomes later followed in their footsteps - in those days the humans, halflings and various beast races were still primitive and young. The Great Storm saw a clash between various races and the withdrawl of the Old Gods from their position in the Heavens, later usurped by the Custodians of Heaven who now call themselves "The Pantheon". As the firstborn children of the True Gods, the dragons took on the role to be living gods that guide the mortal races.The priests talk about the importance of hierarchy and the worship of the Patron, the Water Dragon Techeneh. In the last half hour of the sermon the great dragon makes his appearance - his size matches that of some of the largest dragons our people have recorded. Techeneh appraises the gifts and sacrifices that are presented to him by the Temple and Citizens of Gajaxlan. The people are in awe of his great presence and perform a ritual of loyalty and piety that involves a lot of bowing down. Techeneh assures the people that as long as their faith in him stands strong, their priests will act as proxies for his benevolent will and magic and that the safety of the city and its colonies will be assured.The sermon is drawing to an end - a select few individuals are permitted an audience with the Great Water Dragon, while others may meet with the priests. We've chosen to meet with the Water Dragon.
The Great Dragon's time is limited - to be admitted we are forced to part with most of the golden items in our party's posessions.At last it is our turn to meet the dragon."Greetings to you, foreigners. You seek my wisdom, I presume. Speak, but know that my time is short and I have many matters to attend to. I might not answer all of your questsions, even if I am capable of doing so."

>>570494We've been in Hell a long time ago and saw their gates open tell me, Is there another gate opened in this world and if there was what is our only hope to close it down?
>>570494"Great Dragon we were wondering if you could share any information on The Great Elven Betrayal.''
>>570494So are the "The Pantheon" are the ones that killed the old gods and put themselves in power? Who are they really if that the case? Are they dragons are beings with more power, and can that ever be defeated by the dragons or Old gods if they wake up again?
Rolled 28 (1d100)>>570505Rolling to escape his grasp

I do not mean this in any disrespectful way to him or the Ice Dragons, of course, but you should know that their actions are not necessarily in alignment with the interests of other dragons.">>570520"Neither I nor any of the other Water Dragons of the Southern Seas have spoken with any of the Dark Dragons in the past 3 centuries. Their inclinations have always been somewhat at a disagreement with the other broods.">>570526"None of us have seen any of the Brood of Light since the Great Storm either.

The guards had noticed that a non-lizard was getting close and had taken up their spears and started investigating, but soon returned. For your own safety you soon returned to the party.>>570661>>570651>>570617Taverns and inns are an important place for lizardmen, where conversation and fun is had. Much of the alcoholic beverages that the lizards produce is completely foreign to your tastes, some of it is poisonous to human bodies in fact. Overall you had a good time, except when Thuzzad almost got into a fight with some drunk lazdrevks - thankfully he had a few sailors around who backed him up and a fight was avoided.>>570657You got kicked out of the slave market after you tried to buy a female lizan, as you had almost no money on you.A week after our arrival on Gajaxlan we take a ship back to the lizan colony on the continent. 2 and a half weeks later we arrive and our party takes the fastest horses to return to Dragonstomb and report their findings.
>>570700The sailor introduced the product to the people of Gajaxlan, who took great interest in it. Apparently it is very compatible with the lizan body and soon you get a letter from a rich merchant, who wishes to purchase bulk quantities of swampweed from this Guild that produces it.The expedition has returned home and those who are involved with the military are able to ride to the east, where our army is campedCheck this>>566581It's been two weeks since our army arrived there and we're still at a standoff with the Norsemen on both sides of the river.What should we do?A.Await more reinforcementsB.Push for an attack on ArcheportC.Attack OzdemanD.Dig in and await enemy attacksE.Seek to negotiate with the enemyF.Send forces to deal with the Barbarian King to the south, so we can then focus all of our efforts on the norsemenG.Other

Rolled 26 (1d100)Brutus was in his command tent planning the next counter offensive against the barbarian king when a messenger arrived bearing news of The great battle against the Dragons.After dismissing all Iron legion and Patron Officers he fell to his knees praying for the good of those brave men fighting."Oh stoman Bless these brave souls as they spill blood for the good of all men. Let no man face his death with fear, But knowing that he stood and fought for mankind, Let this not be our last day as a mighty empire"

Rolled 62 (1d100)https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZUxU3gGIpuoThe King's presence on the battlefield lured one the dragons to him." Ara, ara, what do we have here?" A somewhat unusually pitched voice calls down from above, as a medium-sized Ice Dragon lands, clearing the area.This is your chance lads! Looks like the Dragon's going in close. It's a fight!

Rolled 98 (1d100)The Dragon goes straight for the King, lashing out with its claws - Sinep the minotaur jumps in and manages to block the strikes with his axe, hitting the dragon in one of its arms and distracting it long enough for the King to get up on his feet.The dragon visibly grimaces"Minotaurs...disgusting!" as it launches into another attack

You fall down to the ground, screaming in pain.>>571539You are wounded across the back, sharp dragon claws piercing your armor and leaving large scars, though you can still fight.>>571535You manage to get away with a minor bruise when you had to jump away from a tail whip.>>571546Sinep is knocked down to the ground from said tail whip and gets back up after a few seconds."Well...time to end this." the dragon says

Seeing the ensuing catastrophe, he calls to the only other living comrade, Sinep, that they need to retreat.Sinep the Minotaur looks at the king and shakes his head. To that the King looks stunned for a second, before giving a knowing nod and turning his back, running towards friendly lines while the man on his shoulder screams " Leave me, my Liege, I will only slow you down!" The King did not turn back to watch, but as he got onto the nearest horse he saw the Ice Dragon raising itself up into the air.The two survivors of the fight return to the army's headquarters, where the wounded are being treated - the battle has been going on for hours and our side is losing troops faster than the enemy.Dras shares the fact that he had covered himself in berserker potion liquids for the Dragon to absorb - at least his one solace is that the Dragon ate his leg, thus absorbing that volative liquid. A nearby medic looks up, sighs and says "Dragons...are immune to poisons and diseases"Out of the 28 000 men that we brought to this battle a third have already fallen, while our allies have lost about the same proportion of their own troops.In total there are 50 000 men alive on our side against 53 000 on theirs.A.Pull back our troops.

Rolled 42 (1d100)The battle is all but lost.The two Kings met with their Legates and are in agreement - we must retreat to the strong walls of Dominas, otherwise we are doomed to die on this field.Both Armies will leave their 2nd Legion to cover the retreat. May the Gods give them strength.(Rolling for Paitran 2nd Legion)
Rolled 21 (1d100)Covering the general retreatA lone captain looks across the field of death and the triumphant norsemen and says"Another day"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nmzFekRYy7gCorrection:The Paitran 2nd and the Roggarian 6th Legions sacrificed themselves to the last man to slow the enemy's pursuit of our main forces down. Even so, we suffered some casualties before we made it behind the walls of Dominas.Of the 76 000 that marched on Archeport, only 40 000 got out alive(of which 13 000 are ours). Mositan is lost and the enemy still has 7 dragons and at least 60 000 troops.This is a massive military disaster, the scale of which has only been matched by the Massacre of the Frozen Shore for our army and the 2nd Battle of Ostogyol for the Paitrans.With this ends today's session.Press F to pay respects, discuss future strategies and whatnot, I'll probably be back tomorrow to continue.

Keep Prince Veran's army outside so that he can pontentially come and crash into the norse back
>>574409In the days of the old gods some humans travelled south, into the steppes - they were thought dead by most of their former brethren. There they bouth fought against and learned from the centaurs. The many small clans were united into a tribe recently by their leader, the Great Fein, Aapo. They wish to join Roggar for protection against the centaurs, so that they may found a town to call their own in the promised land that their shamans call "Heliski".

>>574455A. We may have skirmished with his forces, but barbarians respect strength, and we proved our might against the ogres and the elite of the centaur. Together, we might crush the men of the north.
>>574455>A.Negotiate with the Barbarian King
Will anybody in particular volunteer to see the Barbarian King, or should we just send some envoys?
>>574481I will go
>>574481Imperator Seigmar:"I'll go"
>>574481Send the sexiest Dark elf i can find.
>>574481Being trapped in Dominas and shit, I can't go.I'll send an envoy from Vaesypolis.
>>574481My son will go. The same son that went to the barbarian capital.
>>574481The first red stalion ,khan of the centaurs will go
The diplomatic party makes its way to Sekalath, where the Barbarian King has taken residence in the Count's Palace.Around the city a large war camp is in place, where most of the Barbarian troops sleep, while the strongest(mostly orcs) are inside the city.The diplomats are stripped of their weapons and escorted by elite guards to the Throne Room.There he sits, The Mighty, a large, strong-looking human, along with his advisers and a large catlike beast at his feet. His hand rests on a long, decorated sword as he looks down upon the envoys."Speak" he utters with an authorative tone.
>>574540Oh yeah Cent wanted me to do this. I send massagers to Godric Isle asking them to make Dragon glass arrow heads. After some are made have have the arrow heads transported to Dominas and keep making more arrow heads in the isle.This is because Cent ask for this, and I want to help him out since he ask. I don't think it will work. But its for Cent.
>>574540"Your Highness I come to speak you with as the highest Military officer of Roggar a kingdom north of yours. Now something that you may not know is that multiples dragons are Attacking Paitras right now and that if humanity doesn't ally to defeat them all our kingdoms will fall and we will become slaves to the dragons. What we ask is for a truce and assistance fighting the dragons and merely that."
>>574540I'd like to Point out to The Barbarian King that whilst his Army made Progess if he doesn't pull out now, he'll eventually have to fight the North if we lose , and the North has 7 ice dragon.Point out Regrouping and making a temporary Truce is best for him to Prepare for that fight.
>>574540"Can there be no peace between our people? There are dragons threating Partias that will threaten you soon enough. They have twice your army with 7 dragons for air support. If you defeat us now your be facing a stronger enemy at your gates. For the dragons do not stop they come coming back for more."
>>574540"We are envoys from the kingdom of Roggar. We know that your great kingdom has been raiding our lands and has invaded our Paitran allies. However, there is a bigger threat up north than any of us.The Norsemen, enslaved by the Ice Dragons, brought a great army south, one that does not wish just to conquer, but to enslave. If we are defeated, the Norse will continue going south until they get to you. And then your people will suffer needlessly.We don't have to fight. There is no reason for war between our peoples, between fellow humans. But even if friendship is not what you desire, you must know that if we don't band together now and push the dragons back north, we all will suffer, be it human, goblin, orc, halfling or minotaur. Nobody will be safe if we don't defeat the Norse army now. And we need your help for that. Or at least we need you to stop attacking us."
>>574561>>574567>>574585"All that you people speak of are these Norsemen and their Ice Dragons. I do not fear them. In fact, I don't think they'll conquer all of Paitras as it is - maybe part of it.You offer me NOTHING but warnings and concernes, like an old woman fretting after her grandchildren. That is why you are weak."
>>574591"Allright i will cut to the chase.What do you want to accept a cease fire between your kingdom and paitras&us?"
>>574601"A guarantee that my Kingdom will expand and prosper." He points towards a map of the region on the wall and to a corner of the room where various gifts and tributes are gathered.
>>574591If you're so strong why haven't your armies conquered Paitras and made as much progress as their's?What we Offer you is a Chance to come out of this conflict on your own terms Since clearly if you don't, they will and i doubt that you'd be able to fend off all our forces.It's simple the North Betray you of you betray them, if none betray and make a peace agreement with us you'll fight each-others and i doubt you have more than 10 dragon and 500 giants and a force of more than 100000 mens to defeat them.
>>574591"What we offer you is advice.We built our kingdom on the grave of a dragon, my own ancestor defeated a demigod dragon with one punch and until a year ago we were fighting a war on four different Roggar is mighty and even us find fighting that many dragons. Dragons do not care about the might of men they simply attack and will keep attacking until everything under the heavens are theirs. "
>>574610*that many dragons difficult
>>574606"We killed countless dragons, my kinsman was the personal slayer of two dragons. We know how tough they are. How about a break? We would like to learn more of you and your kingdom."
>>574606"We can't assure that the Paitrans will allow it, but we can try to let you keep the lands you occupied until now.Also... There is somewhere else... A city rich and prosperous, but friendless. We can pay for the ceasefire with the independence of the city of Ravlegith."
>>574606The Pontiff walks up to the barbarian king, staring him dead in the eye, and speaks, voice low. "You fight for honor, and you fight for the men and women under your rule. I understand who you are, deep down. And I understand that you will not back down in the face of overwhelming odds, because you do not wish to appear weak. Your words are hollow to me; even if you win, many will die. There is no honor in foolishness."With that, the Pontiff demands a dagger. When nobody aproaches him, he grabs one from the table, ignoring the swords being drawn around him as he slices his palm. "I bleed for my people. Do the same, shake my hand, and fight as one against the cowards that hide behind the rule of flying lizards. We will settle this like men, once the northeners are dust beneath our heels."
>>574606"Tell me your highness have you ever seen a dragon. It's power, it's horror. Have you looked into its eyes as it rend your men apart like a scythe through a field of wheat. If you think you can beat that let alone ten then your welcome to try. But if you can't I suggest you rethink rejecting our offer."
>>574619The Barbarian King ignores all others and looks towards you alone with interest.
>>574707Thuzad chuckles darkly to himself, blood trailing across the floor as he walks away, stopping only to spit on the ground in front of the barbarian king and his guards. "Enjoy your 'negotations', fools. Clearly I made a mistake coming here."
>>574707Ravlegith controls the city itself and the surrounding lands. However, their riches are far superior to those found in much larger lands, like the minotaur hills or some counties within Roggar.The Paitrans won't sacrifice their men to help them, and Roggar would, in the worst case scenario, just ignore your forces sieging the city.The Ravlegithers are great traders, but not so good when it comes to war. This helped them be independent with us around, but you are a completely different beast.Taking the city will be relatively easy, and I'd wager that a man such as yourself would not find it hard to get the support from the richer elites in there. The great amounts of wealth that you could get from the city, and the amounts it would produce later would help your kingdom expand, preferrebly in directions opposite to ours. All we ask is peace between our peoples in exchange.
