My people, hearken to me! Again it is the Sacred Time, and we tell the history of our people according to ancient tradition.In the last two years we have faced attacks from our neighbors and the Horse-Spawn, established trade routes with our allies, and performed the heroquest Orlanth and Aroka.
It's time to assign clan magic. The omens predict a bad harvest and children born this year will be special. No idea what that means for the crotchspawn.
>>282420141 crops1 diplomacy1 health1 herds2 quests1 trade2 war
>>28242014Have to go to sleep now but... Very Poor harvest and only 421 food left?Trade for Food. Or you will starve to death.
>>28242327Duly noted.Oh, Ingard's dead. No idea who he was.
>>28242440>Yes, he is really gone.Who the fuck was this guy?Also OP a tactic I sometimes use is sending 1 footman to go on a cattle raid, there's no point sending more because you don't seem to get more if you send more, and if you get in a fight all you lose is one guy
>>28242440I regret that I can't post two images to properly display my reaction to this. The Raven Banner is a very powerful treasure that will almost guarantee a victory in exchange for one of our people dying for sure. Overusing it will make people upset.
>>28242503Keep it, then use it only once in a war!
>>28242503keep keep keep
>>28242525Kentvent's a smug bastard, also the pic is awesome.Keeping it.
For whatever reason the blessing for Maternal Ward has appeared. I don't think we've explored Kero Fin, so I don't know why it would...Anyway, suggestions for Sea season please.
>>28242596hmmm, have we got the basics down?shrines for fightintrade routes for goodsfortifications for defense?
>>28242596Let's make more warriors and weapons.
>>28242596Your farmers are less than happy.You may want to fix that.
>>28242622I think we're okay on thanes for now. Truesword will effectively double our thane count, like >>28242622 suggests.>>28242650Sure, toss a suggestion up.
>>28242687Well, given that the clan only has 20 goods left, giving them silver isn't an option. And feasting is a poor idea given the predicted harvest. I'd say give the farmers 10-15 cows, unless you're cool with them being "uncertain". So yes. Give some some cows, perhaps.Carls love cows.
>>28242687I adjusted our planting strategy to account for imminent poor harvests. We might consider calling in a favor or trading for food.
We've basically got 40 thanes now. Feels good,
>>28242767>We might consider calling in a favor or trading for food.Favors are good. We could also try raiding any weak neighbors come Fire. Put those Weaponthanes to work.
>>28242767do we have a favour to spare? if so don mai doing that(i could never figure out how to fix food problems. Usually muddled my way through till it worked. Its like, > need land for planting food> but also need people to work/clear the land>so need to get more people...> but need food to feed the people
>>28242738We can only distribute goods. We could do that, or let the farmers get over themselves.>>28242798We can actually raid during Dark season. Get get magic for doing it too, whether we win or lose.
>>28242829>We can only distribute goods. We could do that, or let the farmers get over themselves.Damn. I need to play KoDP again. Been a while...I'd say the best bet for now would be to let the farmers deal with it. Address the issue if it comes up, but hopefully they won't be buttmad before we find a way to calm them down.Plus, nobody really expects raids during Dark or Storm.
>>28242860>let the farmers deal with itThat's what I usually do.Hey, you know what cheers people up? Costume parties.Anyone up for some delicious Splendorbread? If you want me to run the heroquest, I can play through it myself since we saw it yesterday. Or we could see the entirety of Orlanth and Aroka again. Up to you.
>>28242829The real problem is clearly food. What do our trading options look like?
>>28242935>SplendorbreadAlways a good idea.>>28242945>The real problem is clearly food. What do our trading options look like?Also this. Also, because I haven't checked out the other thread, have we encountered the ducks yet? They're always good for food.
>>28242935ooo just run the splendor bread quest againi was here yesterday and that was fun but better to speed things up not to repeat hero quests.
>>28242945>What do our trading options look like?The Fire Quartz owe us a favor. We also seem to have a good number of cows, so we could trade cows for food.>>28242956We have in fact. Want to open negotiations?
>>28242989>We have in fact. Want to open negotiations?Might be a good idea, once we've got more trade goods. IIRC, the ducks don't really do cattle or horses.
Sending a large caravan to the Fire Quartz. Hopefully they'll be receptive to selling us food; they don't like us much.
>>28242989Hmm... what are the numbers on trading cows for food as opposed to slaughtering them for beef?
I am entirely not surprised that this event has reared up again.>>28243132Trade tends to give better returns. "Tends" being the operative word.
>>28243158Bah, these fuckers keep at it. Any strong objections to murdering them and stealing THEIR food?
>>28243237It's still Sea season. Raiding now will damage the crops, which are already destined to have a substandard harvest.
>>28243251That would constitute a valid objection. Let's go with sacrifice.
>>28243251then we must honor Brodasart. go with sacrifice.nearly ruïned my own game by raiding in earth season during an event.
>>28243267>>28243292Sacrificing it is, but to whom? Orlanth or the Ancestors would be a safe choice. Humakt might also be appropriate.
>>28243315Humakt. Partly on account of that spiffy banner we just picked up.
>>28243315I kinda wanna go for Humakt but thats because he's been a major bro during my own game.
>>28243315Orlanth.When in doubt, always Orlanth.
>>28243329>>28243331Humakt it is. What and how much of it do we sacrifice?
>>282433752 goods 11 cattle?
>>28243391I never know how much is reasonable, but that doesn't sound terrible.
>>2824337514 Cattle, 7 is always an absolute minimum and Humakt's domain is death so goods might offend him
>>28243391Went with 3 goods, since the total will be a multiple of the magic number 7.
>>28243427>>28243407Multiples of seven are magic.While the gods are satisfied, I people are not. We'll be hearing about this again, I bet.Regardless, it's now Fire season. Remember we can raid in Dark. We want to explore the tula this year, and if we want to benefit from Splendorbread we'll want to heroquest around now.
>>28243493Heroquest sounds good.
>>28243526I'm going to cheat just a little bit; exploring takes much less time to resolve and I wanted to see what our traders get.The answer is a pretty great deal. We might have gotten even more if not for the Fire Quartz not liking us.
>>28243565I haven't been following todays thread, but are we drowning in cow tits so much that we can trade 100 away?
>>28243565Hm, a thrall-catching net. Just using this will get us in hot water with the ancestors, but more treasure never hurt. If nothing else, it's something to trade away.>>28243580Not really. On the other hand, we were low on food and the harvest forecast is bad. We can run Uralda once or twice and earn enough cows to swim in after we learn it, and we'll be hitting jackasses in Dark season, so I'm not worried.
Amazingly, we weren't raided by the Horse-Spawn. I think it's heroquest time.As a side note, look at the clan mood. The carls aren't happy, but everyone else is. Freaking carls.
>>28243633Carls gonna carl. And I also support pic related.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uh1K-Y4hF00>polgag paffed
>>28243633Carls just wanna complain
>>28243633After hero questing, we need food. Hero quest with that story we did last time and then go for the bread.
>>28243655I just muted KoDP to put this on. Brilliant.>>28243655>>28243664Going for delicious bread.
>>28243721The quest is not much trouble for our Onelisin.
>>28243762Here's the Splendorbread.
CHAOS IN THE TULA!
>>28243721It's a great tune>>28243785http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=68ugkg9RePc>>28243804We must sacrifice to the Emper-, Urox to protect us against the evil of chaos! Ave Impe-, Urox.
>>28243804Protection from chaos is needed, Give Urox stuff
>Eiffel65My sides.Sacrificing to the bull. What and how much?
>>28243856>>28243838Seems like we're running low on sacrifices... but this year's extra-lean, and I don't know what choice we have. Summoning actual warriors would probably be more expensive.
Rolled 17 + 3>>28243901I don't know what a good amount is. Rolling for cattle.
>>28243935just go with 14 it is the safest number usuallyand we must raid in dark season
>>28243935Multiples of 7, apparently... so 21 it is. Hopefully, that'll stave off a repeat of last year's broofestation.
>>28243950The damn slider is broken, can't hit 14. Hope Urox doesn't mind an IOU.
>>28243988Even with one clan magic thrown in, it's cheap at the cost.
...Did we just get through a Fire season without getting raided?Pick an activity for Earth 1. Might be worth establishing more trade routes or exploring.
>>28244045Explore due to broos
>>28244057can't argue with that.And sometimes you find nifty stuff
>>28244057>>28244078>>28244086Exploring it is. We'll send a Humakti along to get the point across.Just to check, this is a call to explore our tula and not somewhere else in Dragon Pass?
>>28244123Exploring elsewhere doesn't stop broos, right? Home it is.
The correct answers should be obvious from our clan history.And before anyone asks, Orstalor's being a jackass like a proper Trickster.
>>28244218Which is to say that 'a starter herd' will piss off the carls (more), but land alone is fine?
>>28244218The carls get rectally devestated if we assign them fine land, right? Is cotters or assigning them land the option that get them the least rectally #rekt? Tentatively cotters.
>>28244270>>28244277The carls can get stuffed, our ancestors love us being generous. That said, they're already pretty peeved, so land it is.
>>28244176Oh wow, ivory. I'm impressed, it usually takes a lot longer to get this many trade goods.
>>28244315I should really read up on the clan history and such...>>28244336DID SOMEONE SAY REASOURCES TO EXPLOIT!?
Earth 2. We're about to go raiding, so we might want to keep the thanes close at hand.
>>28244406Time to play a time-honored tradition on our enemies!
>>28244439We can kick the ball next season, we still have to harvest the grain.Speaking of, we'll have several targets. We could go after any of our neighbors, and a lot of them have been jerks to us recently...
>>28244483That's the fun thing about cattle raids. There's a reason it's called "Orlanthi Football".
Rolled 3>>28244483Pick one asshole at random. How many asshole neighbours do we have? I will asume it is three.Which one are we raiding?
>>28244545Still has to be done in Dark, we do not want to fuck up this harvest worse than it's going to be.>>28244558Three on my list is the Stag Hearths. They're the newest tribe on the shit list, and raided us when we were at a low point.I'm thinking about opening up a trade route with the ducks or reassigning craft production. Any preferences?
>>28244587Nah, what I was getting at was that cattle raiding's a casual enough thing that you don't even really need to be in a full feud with the target to do it.
>>28244587Let's trade with the ducks, they usually pack food, right?
>>28244593Oh whoops. Yeah, that's true, it's something you do for kicks, or to keep in practice. It's nothing personal.
>>28244602Here's hoping they're not going to be huge dicks about it.
Oh for Issaries' sake people...
>>28244658Do we have any good bards in our tribe that can diplomance the shit out of them?
>>28244625Not to worry, they'll just be huge ducks.
>>28244682N-Yes. Yes we do.>>28244702That pun really quacked me up.
>>28244719Which trait governs poems? If it is Bargaining, go for it.
>>28244729Oh, it's actually a combined skill: Custom and Leadership. That's Very Good overall, which is actually mid-tier. Hm.It worked anyway.
Damn it all.There is another option open to us: Ernalda Feeds the Tribe can boost food production. Might help. Might not.
Well that's something.
>>28244824That one's a little bit tough if I remember correctly, though it's not quite as noble-devouring as the Cow Mother's quest. We might have to try it. Or else just convert cows to food.
Rolled 66>>28244824Rolling a 1d100. 2-5 means we slaughter som cattle, 6-100 means we do the heroquest. 1 means we stick our head in the sand, drink some mead and go raiding instead.
It is now Dark season. Time to raid the shit out of some assholes. Pick a pink tribe, gentlemen.>>28244849It's actually really easy; on par with Orlanth and Aroka in my experience. I've never failed it except intentionally.>>28244851Heh. We'll do all three. Besides, we're not planting now, and we did Orlanth and Aroka this year. We have to GET Ernalda's quest first.
>>28244882See those Stag Hearths? Fuck those Stag Hearths.
>>28244882Fucking owls man
>>28244947>>28244948I was going to raid the Stag Hearths, but the gif had me laughing.Actually no, we're still raiding the Stag Hearths, fuck those guys. Since we're charging, give me an objective. Note that we outnumber them (and definitely outpower them) so burning steads has a good chance of working.This'll be the last event for the night, once we're done with the raid I'm going to bed. I'll be back in the morning though.
>>28244993What will net us the most food/cattle if it succeeds? Do that.
>>28245042Plundering always gets you the most stuff. Rarely food though.
>>28245067I should mention, Harran has Very Good in all the relevant stats.
>>28245102Why the fuck not. Seconded. Go out with a bang!
>>28245102>>28245109He's our plants expert. You sure you want him dead?Whelp. At least we've got Resurrection anyway.
>>28245132Except for the part where we didn't lose any weaponthanes, that was an unmitigated disaster.
>>28245146Did we go for burning steads?
You have one season to attempt to bring someone back from the dead. Given that our next best Plants expert has "Good" ranking, I went ahead and did it.>>28245158Plundering. Unmitigated disaster.
>>28245178We were lucky. Harran didn't lose any of his stats.It's now Storm season, and I need sleep. See you all in the morning, I hope.
>>28245217...AFTER we kick the Greydogs' collective tail.
>>28245217Spank you very muchos dineros, son of Heort.
>>28245229KILL THE LITTLE CUNTS
>>28245229kill as many as possible and Charge
>>28245239>>28245242Elmaladti probably could pass the fighting check...
>>28245255FIGHT HARDER. YOU ARE A GODDAMN UROXI.
>>28245279I love this casualty list. No thanes down.
Okay, that's it for the night, for real this time. See you lot in ten hours or so.
>>28245288Men of the foot getting destroyed, all is well
Oldfag here who was around for the original Runic Men playthrough of KoDP: I gotta say, I'm actually liking this run better. The Runic Men were epic, but we're running into hardships they never did and shit's just plain more interesting for it.
Is the ipad version any good?
>>28245332>oldfag>Runic Men was in 2012
>>28245360Yeah, actually. When they say streamlined, they mean actually streamlined, and not dumbed-down. Lots of extra events too. If you have an iPad I recommend it.
>>28245415Great. I will give it a go.
>>28245395Doesn't mean he's not an oldfag though.
>>28245461What counts as an oldfag anyway?
>>28245496Well since Runic Men was early 2012, and we're in late 2013, I'd say to be an oldfag you need to be around for two years. Me myself I've been here since 2008, but I still don't see me as an oldfag, but that's just me.
>>28245524Yeah, been here since 2008 as well and never felt like an oldfag either.
>>28245546When I tell my friends, who all are new arrivals to /tg/ but were other boards for ages, they're still amazed we used to not have spoilers.But goddamit, we've had dice. Also pdf.s over /tg/ are apparently a magic science they have yet to master.
Bumping for Storm season.
Okay I'm back. It's the first month of Storm season, and the carls seem to have gotten over themselves finally. We're starting to see real improvements in our goods situation, if not enough to throw up more defenses and keep our temples though. We could be better off, or we could be much worse off.Given that it's Storm season, any actions that take us off the tula have a chance of failure. Still though, it's not a bad time to explore or try to form an alliance (or learn Ernalda Feeds the Tribe).
>>28249291Get Ernalda Feeds the Tribe. Also how can we trigger that market event? I scored myself some nifty treasures with that one yesterday
>>28249291>Ernalda Feeds the TribeConsidering our middle name is 'Namibia' or 'Biafra', lets do that.
>>28249291Seems the food situation's worked itself out overnight. Not sure how that happened but I'll take it.
>>28249406Weird, still learning a new heroquest is good.Oh and welcome back btw
>>28249400Markets trigger randomly. If there was a way to force one to proc, I'd do it every year.How do we want to go about learning Ernalda? We've got a few favors to call in, or we can sacrifice for it. Odds are pretty even for both, we don't know any Ernalda mysteries and we know three herostories.
>>28249471Maybe sacrifice some football tokens. We have 744 of them afterall.
>>28249525For future reference, Ernalda doesn't really care for live sacrifices. Goods have a better chance of being well-received. Still, this could be worse, it could be Bless Children.
No idea who these guys are, but that's rough.
>>28249569Swine blessing means more pigs right? How usefull are they aside from being spare food?
>>28249582Raid them the next dark season.
>>28249583This. I never see anything mentioned about pigs, and since we just had food issues...
>>28249602Well you can slaughter them for extra food is all I know, I used them when my clan was starving yesterday because I had a fuckton of pigs
>>28249602>>28249583The only thing they're good for is being food. Meals on legs, if you will.Anyway, my count was off. It is now Sacred Time.
>>28249622Our reputation has gone up, it seems.Omens say we need to sacrifice to the ancestors at least once this year.
>>28249646I'm thinking...Crops xHealth xHerds xMysteries x (we need unlocks)War xxAny objections?
>>28249646crops and herds as usual.maybe some in war as well, keep a strong reserve otherwise.
>>282496462 crops1 health1 herds1 mysteries2 war
How about putting one in Quests, just in case we get Ernalda?
>>28249721Dangerous, that leaves us without much reserve. If you must, I'd be happier taking the extra from crops instead.
>>28249747taking from crops...are you insane?
>>282497621 crops as opposed to 2, if we really need to have a quest point for some reason. And either is better than not having enough reserves to rez our guys and going to negative luck.
>>28249747We can go without heroquesting for a year.
>>28249795thank the gods.expecially with our bad harvest last year we need our crops
>>28249795The Gorinds have approached us asking for ivory. What do we tell them?The Gorinds raided us two years ago.
>>28249828We can forgive them, if they're willing to do a trade agreement.
>>28249828Our trader is not derisive, so this deal might be good.
>>28249828Offer them first pick every year. 40 cattle is not worth giving up a trade resource for.
Trade deal it is. It's a pretty good deal for us; ten goods a year for perpetuity. The ivory wouldn't get that many from working the ivory ourselves.
Here's me adjusting our planting schedule.We're actually short on horses for our thanes. We'll have to get some more somehow.Suggestions for Sea season, please.
>>28249969Sacrifice goods for mysteries.
>>28249969Lets trade for horses or sacrifice to Elmal (he had that horse blessing right?)
>>28249999what he said
>>28249996We've done our religious duty for the year.>>28249999The Horsefriend ritual makes horses live longer. It's not a very good ritual. Trading we can do though.
>>28249999Hey, quads.Also, this is an entertaining as fuck thread. Nevet heard of this game before; where can I get it? I saw there was an iPad version of it earlier in the thread, but I don't own one nor do I want to.
>>28250047What does summons of evil do?
The Gorinds must be Odayla worshippers. They love ivory, did the hunting ritual a few years back, and now this.
>>28250073I got it from Good Old Games, remember it's difficult as fuck>>28250047Ah my clan might be Elmal, but I focus on Humakt a lot. Already had events asking me for help vs undead.
>>28250073You can get it on GoG for 5 bucks.
>>28250073"good old games" website has it. Might also be on Steam.
>>28250093Demanding tribute seems like a bit of a dick move, what benefits do we get for teaming up with him?
>>28250073GOG.com has the PC version for $6, you can also order it directly from the developers (A#) if you want a disc.>>28250076Summons our ancient enemies (ice demons) so we can kick their ass and look good doing it. Tends to be most useful if you hate trolls, they can water your farms if you have Earthblood going.
>>28250093Let him hunt
>>28250093Let's join them, unless some advisor person objects.
>>28250120Small boost to how much the Gorinds like us and to clan magic. Picking one or the other has a larger benefit.
>>28250144>>28250120We're actually pretty up on our animal knowledge, don't think this is our fault.
Dammit all, was checking our horse status when I saw this. I'm going to cut this off at the pass and slaughter a few hundred pigs. We're going to want to grab the farming rituals "Bless Crops", "Rain" and maybe "Earthblood", and enshrine them all to prevent this from happening in the future.
>>28250233truly we are a cursed people
>>28250233Shut up Kentvent, you're not helping.But goddamn that is an awesome beard.
>>28250259Kill some pigs, we have tons.
Truly you are no Runic Men...
>>28250270I just did.And then this happened.You know though, this COULD solve the horse situation...I'd suggest raising the Raven Banner and killing them all.
>>28250284King of Dragon Pass is as much a roguelike as it is civilization builder. You can do everything right and still have everything go wrong.>>28250308The utter cowards.
>>28250286What if we got the bless Children mystery, then just went on constant raids whenever we needed some excess population dealt with?
>>28250349Have Kentvent raise it for his back-talking sass
>>28250100Hard as fuck as in trap options, trap options everywhere, holyshitIneedaguidetoevenunderstandthisshit or simply very difficult? Or does the RNG always fuck you?
>>28250349Ironically, the results were about the same as they would have been. Free horses!>>28250360It'd be twenty years before an excess of working adults became a problem. In the meantime we'd be starved out of house and home.
>>28250286Raise the banner
>>28250379So wait, was that using the banner, or not? Who died?
Oh for Elmal's sake. Doing nothing will shut her up.>>28250375>>28250380Whoops, sorry, just hit "No" in a blind rage.>>28250409We did not use the banner, we won anyway.
>>28250419Should have been more clear. My recommendation is to do nothing, since the only option that she will like is changing our clan leader. It's still up to you to decide what the clan should do here.
>>28250419do nothing, ignore the bitch
We did nothing and everything sorted itself out. We'll see her again later, I think.
>>28250549It's now Fire season and we have 73 horses. Thank you Horse-Fuckers.We should explore the tula, to prevent things from getting as bad as they did two years ago. At the same time, we might consider sending out expeditions or making alliances/trade agreements. The Wolves seem open to an alliance.
>>28250606Yep, explore the tula.
>>28250606Befriend the Wolves because why not. Also explore the tula.
We've had considerable luck in our explorations, but it had to end eventually.
>>28250658Any chance we can learn Ernalda Feeds the Tribe?
Aw hell nah.Keep in mind that it's Fire season.
>>28250695These guys are our enemies. Let's raid them.
>>28250695Fire means raiding so vengeance!
>>28250695RAID THE FUCKERS! IT'S ON NOW BITCHES!
You'll notice that this is a special raiding screen; we're still going to have another action this Fire season.
>>28250734They didn't see it coming at all. Note that since this is a vengeance quest, Kill as many as possible was automatically selected instead of Plunder.
>>28250753and we outnumber themgood.btw I wonder what kind off advantage Thralls give?
>>28250753Excellent. Commence murder.
>>28250378Hard as fuck as in requiring a good deal of thinking like a magic storm barbarian. Also the RNG hates you, but that's manageable.
Onelisin used to be a great warleader, and then she took an arrow to the kn--neck. Rangor has the magic, we can save her.>>28250758You can sacrifice them, they work your fields (and are very productive), there are special events based on them and if you're a thrall taking clan you get clan magic bonuses for taking them. Unfortunately, it's hard to take captives in battle, almost as hard as burning fortifications.>>28250831There are a few traps though, mostly based on the town scenario and the wedding race.
>>28250866Heal the shieldmaiden!I only played a thrall clan once... sacrificed thralls to the healing goddess, much to my stupidity
>>28250866Rush forward, unless that's likely to go horribly wrong.
>>28250895>>28250892I think we might have just lost them both.
>>28250926fuck fuck fuck fuck fuckany good replacements ready?
Whoops, forgot to cap the battle results. We actually did pretty good, no thanes down.And Onelisin's still alive, praise Orlanth.
>>28250960>we did pretty good>still failed to avengewut
>>28250997we lost none of our precious thanes in the battle that is doing good
>>28250960If not for the fact that we only just solved the food crisis temporarily, I'd suggest hiring weaponthanes, we can get EIGHT AT ONCE.I think we should be praising Orlanth and Ernalda for Rain and Bless Crops. Maybe Maran Gor too.>>28250997That's the RNG. We won the battle, but the numbers didn't line up to kill the murderers.
>>28251047sacrifice for rain, in my game i'm rocking permanent rain and bless crops and it works well
>>28251047Ah well I see, RNGesus is a fickle master.
>>28251125understatement of the year
>>28251047Let's sacrifice goods to Ernalda, then. Maybe we can unlock blessings or quests.
>>28251072We can enshrine this come Sea season.>>28251180Any objections to doing this next?
Fan-fucking-tastic. This won't come back to haunt us at all.
>>28251228Nah, if we get another quest people might even ask me for more storytime. Definitely feel useful then.
>>28251272Ernalda next indeed, enshrining those two leads to good things (together with enshrining Fyrdwomen and Truesword)also fuck those feuders
>>28251303>fuck those feudersEh, our guys seem to be coming out on top. What's the problem?
>>28251272Not what I wanted, but quite nice.
>>28251348because that shit's gonna backfire on us one day.
That makes three feuding partners. Time to step up the alliance making.
>>28251386>Time to step up the alliance making.or concentrate on fucking one into the ground. Have we won a battle against one of our enemy clans recently?We should raid them twice in Dark, twice in Storm.
Kinslaying! We are undone!>>28251412The Greydogs would normally be my choice, but they're separated from us by the Stags and the Jenasti. On the other hand, the Stags haven't been doing so hot against us, so we could keep up the pressure.
>>28251400>>28251412These both sound good. Make friends when we can, then identify which clan we're feuding with is the weakest.Follow this with shit-kicking and curb-stomping.>>28251440Fuck those Stags. And maybe sacrifice to Urox. Finding Uroxi warriors would be good, but sacrifices would be cheaper.
>>28251440Are we only hostile with the Stags, or is that a legit feud these days?If only hostile i'd still say Dogs.
>>28251440sacrifice to Urox, make it good. Deal two blows to the Jenasti in dark season
Sacrificing. How much of each?>>28251475Only hostile.Why don't we hit the Jenasti? They're right there, and kicking them into the marsh will put us next to the Greydogs, who are the weakest tribe in Dragon Pass.
>>2825150414 of each, lets go overboard in this sacrifice.Kill the Jenasti
>>28251484>>28251504>the JenastiActually yeah. Let's show those fucks what a good idea declaring that feud on us was.
>>28251504Why don't we hit the Jenasti?Sounds like a plan.As for sacrifices, 14 cows and 7 goods, maybe?>Captcha: Sword VighesiTHIS IS TRULY AN OMEN OF HUMAKT APPROVING OF USE KICKING THE SHIT OUT OF THE JENASTI BASTARDS.
Idiot slider wouldn't let me get the exact amount I wanted. Still, this should work...
It's still only Earth 2? Wow.Sacrifice to Ernalda in hopes of Bless Crops? Ally with Wolves?
>>28251653Is there anyone more close by that still likes us? Might be an idea to think about allying with potential future tribe-mates.But if we've pissed off every one of our neighbours sure, the wolves.
>>28251653Ally with the wolves, and then murder the Jenasti.>Captcha: typlygr immense...Does this mean either our losses or our victory will be immense?Freakin captcha omens. Can never tell what they mean.
>>28251653It'd be nice to enshrine bless crops, so sure.
>>28251653Ally with the Wolves
>>28251681The Rune Ducks think we're bros. Most of the clans to our North don't care about us one way or another.Also damn, the Wolves are about as far from us as they can be. Any emissaries we send won't be back before the start of Dark season.
>>28251753Might as well ally while we can
>>28251753I'd say ally with the ducks but I have a sneaking suspicion that we can't?Otherwise we could always try and make peace with one of our pissed off neighbours. Stags maybe?
>>28251763Sure, but we'll be down weaponthanes...>>28251787It's possible. Hell, they can join your tribe later on in the game. Problem is that they're not popular with mainline Orlanthi, so it's a reputation hit if you get too close to them.
>>28251787Fuck the stags. They started this mess. I'd rather cultivate relations with our trade partners (say, the Gorind) than anything else.
>>28251805If we ally with the Wolves you have to promise me we'll try the Lysangs too at some point just to continue the tradition of having allies in the middle of bum fuck nowhere.>given painek
Alliance makers off. It's now Dark season, I wonder what we should DO?!Side note: I sent three thanes off with our emissary. The last two thanes recovered just this week.>>28251833>try the LysangsThat will be hard, they really don't like us.
>>28251886We will befriend them with force if we must.
>>28251910Funny, but it doesn't really work like that.
>>28251954We will make them love us!
>>28251886>That will be hard, they really don't like us.True, true, but at this point who does?>All that pink and red
Put on your favorite Viking themed music, we're raiding the Jenesti. Anyone up for burning down houses?>>28251910That doesn't work. You can beat them so bad they offer tribute though. And then you can raid them once they inevitably default.
>>28251991Call me a traditionalist but I like the idea of a simple plundering.
>>28251991We've seen better odds... just loot for now.
>>28251991plundering, keep the burning shit untill better odds
>>28251991BURN THE FIELDS! SALT THE WOMEN!RAPE THE HOUSES!I think i got this wrong somehow.....
Smash and grab it is.Harran's in trouble again. He's Very Good in all relevant stats.
I love the art in this game.
>>28252042Throw before the other guy's ready?I'unno, comes down to who the better warrior I guess, but the other guy stopped to cast first so he can't be that great.
For a moment I thought everything had gone wrong.The writing in this game is excellent, too.
>>28252130good, one Jenesti less
>>28252130No thanes lost, but we still didn't win.
Whatever you do /tg/, don't drop the spaghetti.
>>28252168Eh, just go with what the dude says. He seems to know his shit.
>>28252168appeal to his greed
>>28252168Appeal to his greed seems good
Didn't help much.For what it's worth, the advisors do have their biases, which color how good their advice actually is.
And now the cows are sick. That's not good.
>>28252239>No Uralda worshipperUh, uh... what the Urox say?
>>28252255"Let's fight these other guys!"
>>28252266Sacrificing to Uralda is safest optionand give her goods.
>>28252266How, uh... useful. Sacrifice, I guess.
>>28252266Not as useful as it might have been. I might be tempted to cut our losses and kill them, though, and hope we win our next few raids like he says.Have we sacrificed to the ancestors yet?
>>28252309why not sacrifice and separate them? I hear spirits are transmitted by microbes.>>28252309
Sacrificing.>>28252324First action I took this year. Learned Summons of Evil. >>28250047
>>28252324Yes, we did that earlier.
Could have been a lot worse.
>>28252357>Orstalor continuing to prove himself useful and knowledgableWhy haven't we made him chief yet?
>>28252389Because of that creepy grin
>>28252389we get bonuses for ELmal worshipping chief
>>28252379Yeah, that's fifteen cattle lost, instead of fifty. Good trade.Second half of Dark season. Paradoxically, we have more weaponthanes that we did when we hit the Jenasti last time. Do it again?>>28252389Because sometimes he backslides.
>>28252440Yeah. And send a bunch more carls too?
>>28252454And a few more auxiliaries. Larger parties have a higher chance of being spotted though.
>>28252491Well, that's irritating. Worse odds than last time.Plundering should still be safe, though.
We beat them this time and killed one of their thanes.
>>28252561A feast in honor of this victory!
>>28252491True, but if we send... about 120, say, then even when they spot us they'd barely outnumber us, and when they don't... And because of fyrdwomen, we still have a bunch of folks protecting home.
Storm season. We've got a lot of hurt people, so sacrificing for the healing ritual might be advised.We're also down on farmers again. And if we want to enshrine Bless Crops and Rain to ensure we never go hungry again, we need to learn the ritual this season. Oh, and we'll also want to clear some land going forward.
>>28252627Do all those things.
>>28252627Sacrifice for healing then learn bless crops
>>28252627Sacrifice for bless crops and rain, and we can clear land in sea because then we'll have the harvest omens and can change stuff with our planting if we need to.
That's a relief.
>>28252627>>28252663>RainActually we're all about Elmal, right? Do we have the sun blessing?
Vingan mercenaries? What the hell.I might suggest making peace, we don't have the wherewithal to keep up our feud with the Anmangarn while doing everything else.>>28252704We started with a shrine with it.
>>28252734>making peaceThey hurt Orstalor, so my initial reaction is a resounding 'Hell no!'.It's probably the smart thing to do though.
>>28252734Agreed. Those guys are on the other side of the world, and it's silly to be fighting them.
>>28252734make peace, focus on enemies nearby
How do we make peace?>>28252755The story Beneva told was about hurting Eurmal when our Trickster got hurt.
>>28252796Offering them payment is probably the surest way, but forget gifting them just after this.Marriage?
>>28252844We still have an action, right? And all our dudes just got healed?
>>28252844It's on now.
And to think things were looking up at the start of the year.>>28252869Indeed, it's Storm 2. I still think we want Bless Crops, but I leave it to the clan.
>>28252902Oh, fine. Blood will just beget more blood.... so sacrifice for a blessing instead of raiding. But Maran Gor, not Ernalda.
>>28252925Vicious. I like it.
>>28252977>EarthbloodShrine it ASAP. Let the blood flow.
Sacred time. We survived another year.
>>28252996This next year should be a good one. Good harvest AND blessings for getting treasure? Fuck yeah.Going to end here, for now. After the thread 404s I'll be back.I'll start announcing when I'm starting on Twitter: https://twitter.com/watashiwaonlineThanks for playing.
>>28253093Always a pleasure.
>>28253093Thanks for the play, dood!
