Continued from>>25892379After Gronk had taken his fill of answers from Ragnar, the shaman asked about the victory over Gulgamarsh. Speaking carefully, Gronk told him of the fire. The shaman seemed pleased to hear about another troll wielding magic and asked what else Gronk could do. This sent Gronk into a rage, as he saw it as a hostile move, like measuring an opponent’s strength before attacking. Ragnar retreated to the other end of the temple, bowing and scraping. After some hours, he returned and apologised. He seemed stiffer and less warm than before. In recompense, he offered to transform the bear’s pelt into a cloak for the mighty Gronk. Despite himself, Gronk was flattered and pleased by this offering. While Ragnar worked on the cloak, Gronk and Tak-Tak secretively resumed their lessons. Gronk also brought up the lack of new goblins, and was able to understand Tak-Tak’s answers much more clearly with his new language. After some hours of talking, Gronk agreed to use some cloth to make a tent for the goblins to mate in. In return, the children would be taught that trolls were a goblin’s natural masters. When Ragnar finished the cloak, he tentatively offered to give Gronk some lessons in his magic, the magic of earth, stone and wood. With a benevolent smile, Gronk accepted. Much progress was made with the tribe’s clubs, both Ragnar and Tak-Tak using stone from the temple to improve them. Dotted with sharp stones, the clubs would now inflict much more damage, and cause bleeding in any non trollish opponent.

>>25898066D. Learn the new magics basics.F. Meet the dwarfs.
>>25898050Very nice!>>25898066D Troll techonology, with help of magicE train for war, goblins train archery, trolls spar, except Gronk who trains magic
>>25898140I'd prefer to do a little battle prep before we go, just in case, we also got the Thug thingy that fucks ups our ally status
Rolled 11>>25898066>C: scout around the dwarf mines carefully.probably our next target once scouts frm south returns.>D: Gronk spends whole his time studying magic with Tar-Tar and Ragnar in preparation of future battles.
>>25898050Send a troll and five goblins to the last base to wait for the scout for 1 week
>>25898159Option E means go to war. Yours is a good idea, I'll have to add a train option.
>>25898176Actually, that has already been done. Thumbs up for remembering any way.
>>25898181Yeah I felt it fitted the War part the most
We seem to have lost a lot of players, but they'll probably find their way here eventually. If not, I'll finish up quite soon.Scout the mine or send some trolls to greet the dwarfs?
>>25898066D:troll technology and B>dick
>>25898159I agree, also make asmany stone clubs as we can.
D: New magicF: Train for warOur moral and strength are great right now, and we should prepare to capitalize on it.
>>25898257dont fight yet.
>>25898257Definitely scout. I doubt a diplomatic representative would even be able to hide his hunger for war.
We have a tie between researching/producing technology and researching magic.First linked post decides.
>>25898296troll, dwarf, dipmocy... those words dont belong in the same sentence.>>25898327magic.

Guys I'm off to bed, I see you guys hopefully tomorrow. Cheers!
Wearing his new bear skin cloak, Gronk spent much of the next few days listening and talking with Ragnar. Tak-Tak was now almost obsolete, as he knew almost nothing about magic. His only skill was his knowledge of the common tongue and troll speak, and Ragnar is a better translator. Gronk’s studies progressed much faster under his new teacher, but earth spells seemed to elude him. Try as he might, he was unable to manipulate the power. On the other hand, his studies in fire magic were proceeding in leaps and bounds. After only a week with Ragnar, he was able to create a cloak of fire that didn’t burn him and a club that burned like an inferno.Deciding to make sure he knew more about the dwarves than they did about him, Gronk dispatched several trolls to scout out the area around the mine. He also issued strict instructions that they were not to hunt while in the dwarf’s area, in case it gave away their presence.>Cont.
>>25898678On the day before the scout’s left, the prodigal son returned. Moruk swaggered into the temple, flanked by four of the goblins sent with him. He looked far bigger then when he had left, and bore a thick, rope like scar across his torso. Slung across his back was a bag, similar to those used by the tribe but made of softer, stronger material. It contained bars of a shiny material Moruk and Ragnar called ‘gold’. Apparently it was valued quite highly in the south lands. Moruk had many tales of his adventures, claiming to have gained the scar from a human with a burning sword. Each of the goblins he had brought back looked lean and hard, as fearsome as a goblin can be. They all had stick throwers and goblin sized swords. Moruk said they had taken them from a goblin encampment they had found some way south of ‘Ead Smasha. They had crept in during the night and stolen the gold and weapons. These goblins were clearly fanatically loyal to Moruk, as they had chosen to follow him rather than rejoin their own kind. This goblin encampment was thought to be the replacement for the one raided so very long ago. There were still many scores of goblins in it, seeking their enslaved kin. Moruk also confirmed the presence of Märlas, the human city.

>>25898611Good game, next one will start at the same time this did tomorrow.
>>25898720Done, huh? Gonna archive it yourself?
>>25898724Iäll do one more update, then I'm finishing. Go ahead and vote.
>>25898697Speak to the dwarves.also craft a chestplate out of gold, it's soft so it should be possible to mold it with their bare hands, either that or use fire to do so.
>>25898746Alright then.>>25898697>D: Research Troll weapons via goblin slaves>E: Train, have Moruk and his goblin lieutenants whip the slaves into shape
>>25898758Actually make the chest plate first to impress the dwarves, and learn to speak the common tongue better first.
>>25898697E: Train Melee. Make sure Moruk participates, we'll see his progress with our own eyes.B: Worship Big Papa and also celebrate Moruk's return with a feast.
>>25898784D: Research WeaponryE: Train Melee. The trolls are going to war!
Looks like train melee and research weapons. This will be the final update.
When the new scouts returned, they related the layout of the dwarf area as best they could. They said there were two entrances, one large and one small, on two different sides of the mountain. They had dubbed the mountain ‘Gold find’ in honour of the shiny new material. The dwarves kept everything they owned underneath, only using the surface as somewhere to make fires and dump waste. There were great piles of shattered rock littered throughout their territory, higher than a troll. Goats and other animals were abundant there, as the dwarves seemed to hunt very little. The larger entrance was a huge affair, larger by far than the temple. The great doors were wood inlaid with a black hard material, called ‘iron’. The smaller entrance was rarely used and only located by accident. It was a small door, not big enough for a troll and far higher up than the other entrance.In the days that followed this new, Gronk ordered new weapons forged and a training regime to be implemented. He had Moruk’s goblins show the other slaves their new found skills, even as Moruk demonstrated his to the trolls. Moruk was faster and stronger than any of the bull trolls, easily spinning away from every attack they made. He took on three or more of them without much trouble and soon adapted to using a club while fighting. The new clubs had slabs of sharp rock in place of tips, like large flints. Ragnar said they reminded him of ‘axes’ a human weapon. These trollish ‘axes’ were undeniably deadly, cutting great chunks out of whatever they were directed against.

And with that, I must leave you. The next thread will start in about 17 hours, and a new war will begin!If the person who archived the last thread could do this one as well, I'd be much obliged.
>>25899087guess thats it then, thanks op.tomorrow, we shall dine on dwarves!though i think raiding new goblin ecampment first would be better, that'll probably get out-voted.
can we make the troll and the goblins that returned a scout force/spec ops kind of troop
Quick reminder, this thread has been going for 7 hours. I'm fucking wiped.
>>25899160Indeed! Thanks much. Made work much more interesting. War come the morrow!
>>25899259Good to now, hope to see you there. I suppose I'll archive it myself now.
>>25899295Done.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/25898050/Anyone still here could upvote it and the previous one so they don't get scrapped.http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/25892379/
