    194 KB COLONIAL QUEST! duck_murderer !hoaRoCu48g 06/21/10(Mon)13:30 No.10643241  
    so, lets try and get a quest thread started. A ship travels to the new world with settlers onboard, excited and anxious to start begin anew. This expedition has been commissioned by the kingdom of Varina, a small but flourishing kingdom back in main land Europa. A total of 200 settlers have been sent to the new world under the authority of a Varinan Duke to set up a settlement to claim this land for the glorious kingdom of Varina. You only have limited resources to start with and while you may occasionally get more from the kingdom, you'll need to focus on surviving off the land like a true colony.

    Green: The plains of the new world
    Dark Green pattern: Woodlands
    Black Pattern: Rocky areas
    Light blue: Shallow water
    Dark blue: Deep water

    Now you have two choices. You can disembark with what you have and set up a small village, with several small homes and a town hall, and use your ship to ferry materials and new settlers back and forth between the new land (This region being known as New Riata), or you can dismantle your ship, recieve an extra 40 men, 20 muskets, 6 cannon and have the ability to build a medium sized village, but you'll be cut off from the old world, and must wait until the kingdom decides to send a ship to check up on you, which could take a year or more.

    Now, you must choose where your colony will be located, the name of your colony (only semi-serious names will be accepted) and decide whether or not to dismantle your ship.

    Also, just because you don't have settlers trained in a trade, does not mean they cannot do it, they just cannot do it as effectively. Feel free to take roles within the settlement, and if you want to be the duke, then check to see if everybody else is ok with it.

    Lets get imperialism going.

    The ship sets sail after its made sure that the settlement can be set up, the captain promising return within 4-5 months. The farmers set up several farms using all the bags of seed, helping to teach 60 settlers how to farm. In addition, most of the colony helps to work on the building of the walls around it as well as the windmill this month. We now have 5 months supply left, and will be recieving crops in around 6 months, capable of feeding 250 people for 6 months.

    We seem to have swords out the wazoo - we'll give one to each man, and instruct them on the basics of their use?

    Send the woodsmen to the woods with some commoners (gather information about the areas, snag something to eat maybe, teach them nature skills) and miners to the nearby rocky area (accompanied by a pair of marines or so)

    Our fishermen doing anything?
    They can start teaching some settlers some fishing!

    The marines hand out the rifles too the settlers, with the duke ordering search parties and hunting parties to be undertaken. They search up too 10km from the settlement, and all they find is the remains of a native camp site, probably 2 years old. You're settlers aren't the best of shots at first, but are slowly begining to learn. The duke also has 5 settlers head down to the river to try and net it to get fish, bringing in some fish as well. The people are happy that meat is finally back on the menu. Although sad news today, John MacDonnathon died after being attacked by a wolf.

    The royal marines have been teaching each man swordplay for an hour a day at 8am before they go off to their jobs. several woodpits have been built and the lumberbacks have begun to fell the forest, but at a rather slow rate due to low numbers. John MacDonnathon's funeral was today, and he was burned as tradition require in order for his spirit to be released into the embrace of the holy mother. On the bright side, Mrs. John MacDonnathon is now single.

    It has been a most productive month for us. We've set up fields for our cattle, sheep and horses to be put aside to their own 'bussiness', in addition to using carts to haul food into town. Several woodsman have been trained up and wood supply has increased.

    And even better, our ship has been created! she is capable of moving 20 men in one go. Now you must name her, and i want you folks to roll 1d4 for a random event.

    +10 woodsman
    +cattle and sheep

    458 of our holy mother, july

    This month has been troubling. while work has been going on as normal, the supply ship is over due, and to make matters worse, after spotting smoke to the south, your scouts have confirmed that there are natives in the area. The Orcs (don't just go think evil straight away, just think native) are around 60 in number, and appear to be mostly men, which usually means they are either on a warpath or are refugees from another warring tribe.

    year 458 of our holy mother, august

    Grand news, our supply ship has arrived! They bring with them new settlers, another marine unit and some supplies. The duke heads off with the entire marine detatchment to meet the natives, as well as a 20 man militia force. The first meeting was nervous for both sides, but everybody is still alive so thats a plus. You've been able to establish that they are a scouting party from the further inland native nation of 'Dothclyde'. which is a loose collection of tribes. Although no incidents have occured, natives have been seen around serenity every now and then. the settlers are slightly worried.

    Oh, the harvest just came in, too.

    +40 settlers (30 men, 10 women)
    +10 marines
    +20 muskets

    Attempt to make a trade agreement of sorts with the natives. Try to find something to trade with them for food. Information perhaps? Skills that we developed and carried overseas with us. Who knows. Trying to get a stable supply of food would be the main goal.

    We want to be as friendly terms with them as possible at the beginning. We should wait on enslaving them until we are strong and completely self-reliant instead of fucking it up and attacking them at the beginning.

    they are VERY wary, as the other colonist nations, as well as your own, have been known for being total dicks to them, but they have also worked together with them as well. The scouts are basicly there to see whether or not you're trying to fuck them over, again.

    Also, just so you folks know, due to new settlers, the town will expand. So you want me to leave room within the new walls for further expansions? It will cost 3 units of stone.

    year 458 of the holy mother, September

    You welcome the new settlers into serenity, holding a grand feast for the grand time, inviting a delegation from the orcs. Although they seem nervous of everything, they seem less on edge after the feast. The walls are expanded with the help of the settlers with a small market built along with several homes and traders, as well as a watch tower which has a constant garrison of 4 marines and 4 militia men

    The supply ship returns back to the kingdom and promises to inform the king of how well the colony is going. The prospectors return on the ship, telling you there is 'iron in them thar hills' and possibly more deeper, but transporting it constantly by the small, glorified row boat isnt feasible.

    the priest frowns at all fun things.

    Domesticate wolves for sure. have the woodsmen trap them and get to work domesticating them SLOWLY AND CAREFULLY. One guy per wolf, start off by just him walking up to the cage and dropping food in on a regular basis. when the wolf is waiting for him, have him sit near the cage opposite the food while the solf eats. when the wolf isnt being all protective with the food have him switch sides. move the wolf to a pit/pen area, but set it up so the wolf has to walk into a cage to get fed by dudeguy. keep uping the ante until it can be trusted. rinse, repeat

    The scouts have begun to try and domesticate the local wild dogs, which is meeting mixed success. while the beasts dont meet sentient beings often and have no reason to fear them, that doesn't mean the beast in them doesn't occasionally strike, as old man wilkens found out

    put steel production on the backburner then. once our farms are properly expanded and our barge is finished sacrifice some of our wood production (which we should increase to get the barge out faster) for coal. Another good point about having the barge: it forces the orcs to come to our city to get their steel once we're making it, meaning theyre gonna hit the market as well, which gets US more supplies. if we do a caravan they can just take it straight from the mine, which means less profit.

    so split the last 50 unassigned settlers to another 20 to farming (permanant) and 30 to lumberjacking, the 30 switch to barge-building once we have enough wood for that

    and if an unfriendly force attacks the (slow moving) caravan guarded by what the 4 unassigned Marines we have left, not only do we lose the wood for the wagons, and that days ore production. but a considerable percentage of our professional soldiery and a good bit of the colony/mining camps morale would go down the shitter as well. PLUS the caravan idea removes the other trading advantages we would gain from the orcs once we get steel going

    year 458 of the holy mother, december

    Terrible news, we got competitors. The most serene republic of Acra has set up a colony due east of ours, even infringing on our land rights, the dogs! But currently we cannot do anything about it, as from what our scouts have told us the settlement, while only holding 150 settlers, has a grand total of 50 marines and two cannon.

They can trust us now that they know we don't want to hurt them. We should convince them that these people will though and that for both our sakes we should move them from the continent now.

    so two more months until we get the barge up then MASSIVE INFLUX OF IRON ORE. I'm gonna suggest we get a basic stone smelter up at the mining camp, and proper forges (also stone since we need wood for the barge) at the main colony. If we're getting border fights have the scouts sneak out in the night with some of the more tamed wolves and torch/raid the other colonies farms. Try to get the orcs to dislike the other colony as well. If they cant eat or safely leave their city they will die off before spring.

    Less risk of retribution towards us.

    And since they're apparently greedy as fuck anyway, it shouldn't be much of a surprise for them anyway which means even less risk of retribution for us.

    Supply the natives, have them raid fields.

    year 459 of the holy mother, January

    The Arca colony has expanded slightly, and they have at least 10 cows, 20 pigs and 12 horses. The captain of the marines went to the settlement along with 6 guards. According to the goblins, a land deal was made allowing them to expand this far west, although we obviously have no knowledge of this until our ship returns.

    The wolves have now become fully domesticated as well as a wolf can be, and make great watch dogs. you deliverer word to the orcs about these goblins and warn them, although they are just as suspicious of you at this point as well.

    Finally, some of the first children are born this year, with a ceremony being thrown for the first true 'serenity' born Varinans.
