My people, hearken to me! Now it is the sacred time, and again we relate the history of our people in accordance with ancient tradition.Since discovering our destiny to create a tribe here in Dragon Pass, our clan has busily worked on improving relations with our neighbors. The Tree Brothers proved difficult to convince, but now all that remains for tribe-making is to convince the Mule Deers as to the benefits of alliance and to perform The Making of the Storm Tribe heroquest. And to make one of our clan members a good Bargainer.Additionally, the Jenestni have defaulted on their annual tribute-giving.
What I presume clan magic expenditure will be this year. It's a pretty silly stock we have there. The exploration omen makes exploring a very good idea. Give me a direction.Sorry for disappearing for a while, between work and getting sick I haven't felt up to it. Should be playing regularly starting Friday.Here's a list of clan assets.Shrines:Barntar--VigorElmal--Sun, ShieldErnalda--Bless CropsHumakt--TrueswordIssaries--SilvertongueLhankor Mhy--LiteracyMaran Gor--EarthbloodOrlanth--RainTarard Riel--WatchfulnessUrox--Smite ChaosVinga--FyrdwomenWind Spirits--N/ABlessings that might be useful on a permanent basis: Humakt (Battle Luck OR Morale), Issaries (Market), Uralda (Calf Blessing).Treasure: Parentheses are where the treasure came from.Bag of Winds (heroquest)Bullroarer (Exploration)Eurmal's Shield (Trade)Eye Mirror (Adventurers)Godbone (Adventurers)Grey Net (Exploration)Gustbran's Wheel (Heroquest, godsrealm)Humakt's Raven Banner (Exploration)Klanth of Orlanth (Heroquest, Orlanth and Aroka)Necklace of Axes (traded with dwarves)Quivin's Torc (traded with a tribe)Red Leather Mask (Adventurers)Shimmering Cloak (Adventurers)Silver Dragon (Exploration, dragonnewts)Splendorbread (Heroquest, Orlanth and Aroka)Vargast's Ring (Trade)
Put points in Hunting. I'm curious as to how much of an effect there is.
Sure, why not.Events for the year? We'll want to explore the tula, explore Dragon Pass, run Lhankor Mhy empowerment for Bargaining, send emissaries to the Mule Deers and learn The Making of the Storm Tribe.
I don't quite know what's going on here. Our Hunters seem to have gone up in number and I sure don't remember assigning more. Is this an automatic thing?Regardless, I'll start sending gifts to the Mule Deers momentarily.
New age portrait for Rostakos. Looks like a less badass Elmalandti. RIP.
No change to their feelings about us.
Some kind of epidemic hit our clan. We should try to fix that, but first...
>>28530696That's not helpful.
The trader has finally showed up. She actually sells several treasures, and sometimes will appear multiple times, with different treasures.The whirlwind is powerful, but is single use. Orstalor has Excellent Bargaining (and I don't think being a Trickster can screw us over in this event).
Trade it for 60. Dicker.
Pity it's too precious to use.
Thankfully it worked this time.
>>28530997i fucking hate thatIts only 1 use so you end up NEVER using it
65 people are now healthy.>>28531078Plus after a certain point you're so buff that you don't need to risk losing treasures.
>>28531095might as well start exploringGo to the top right corner of the map
We're being called on to help with a heroquest. Note that if we help and the ritual fails their drought may get sent over here.
How many cows do we cut for Orlanth?Orstalor is making up a heroquest here. Since Glorantha runs on faith and stories can rewrite history, actually performing his version of the heroquest would have interesting consequences.
>>28531178ALL THE COWS
>>28531178uhhhhh 20we can get more from the greyhounds
>>285311787 cow'd be plenty, I think. 14 if you wanted to be safe.
We definitely want this one to succeed.>>28531197Not this year, have to wait until they stop paying. The Jenestni though...>>28531187Don't even joke about that.
We did well. The quest failed and we were safely insulated from its effects, but we made a point of being pious. Maybe some people would fault us, but few could without being hypocrites.
>>28531221Dammit, missed this picture. Here it is, out of order. The story is interesting though.It's now Earth season. If no one has better suggestions, we'll go exploring.I'd prefer NOT to go top right, just because I know who lives there.
>>28531278If top right is bad, how about bottom left?
Let's see what comes out of this.
No event, so give me a second action for Earth season. We might consider someone through Lhankor Mhy Finds the Truth to boost their Bargaining; either Kentvent or Elusu.
>>28531432Kentvent's getting old due to the last Heroquest he was on, right? Shouldn't it be Elusu?
>>28531444Do heroquests make you older?
Any objections?>>28531444Heroquests don't age people, though some hurt the leader. The pictures are always the same, regardless of the leader's actual age or gender. Good make-up crew, maybe.
I apologize for doing this, but are any of you guys experts at this game? I'm doing an Elmal hard mode run and I've ran into a problem with sheep.Milk-eyes won't come any more and its been 35 years since I last saw him. I wish I could start a tribe without that assholes event. My only other option is to join the Colymer tribe with my save event that I got and I'd rather not do that.
Wish him luck.>>28531520>327 magicJesus Christ.I don't think you can join the Colymar. Not sure what the problem could be either, you might have just broken the game.
>>28531623No, you can join them through an event were they try to strong-arm you into giving them tribute. But with a high custom skill you can convince them to let you join their tribe.I think I'm just going to restart though. Good luck with your game though.
The quest went well. I tried winning both contests in the middle, but wound up losing both. Not sure if a higher stat line would help, but it IS possible to win both contests.>>28531684I'll be damned, it is possible. You're even supposed to be able to win that way. Sorry to hear that you couldn't make it in your version.
The Old Owls are calling in a favor, asking for details about a heroquest. They're one of our allies, and future tribe members.
>>28531773I find it annoying in these situations that there's no way to check to see if you actually know these quest specifics or not.
>>28531773Give the man what he needs
>>28531520>population: 3247>magic:327Dude, what? How can you grow clan that huge?
>>28531520Yeah, btw, you can buy sheep and pigs along with cows as cattle or sacrifice to Eurmal for few sheep.
>>28531790Your clan ring members will tell you if you know a given story. Kinda wish there were more heroquests, but they're working with (an older version of) an established setting.>>28531797Time and luck. I've a friend with a clan in similar straights, but he has a tribe. Doing that well tends to break the game right in half though; he can't get his kingdom event to proc.
Dark season. Time to remind the Jenestni why they should have kept paying their taxes.
God damn it.
The spirit is back. Want to try catching it again?
pssht, start up a stream on twitch and livestream it, while talking to people through instant messaging
>>28531931This sounds like something with a miniscule chance of success, but screw it, let's try to capture.
Bargaining is a free action.>>28531954I'd consider it if I weren't at work.
>>28531994We are drowning in cattle. Between the annual tribute and what we can spawn each year, I think we can afford to spend 40 cattle.
>>28531994Ah i see.Bargain the shit out of that. no more than 30 cows!
Ah crap. We need to go all out on tribe making. If we're not in a tribe by the end of next year things will get ugly.
Gygax: Are you sure you want to do that?Note falling stars.
>>28532121Sadly, not an option. Tribes over clans, like spades over hearts.
>>28532142Bribe them with cows!>everyone loves cows
>>28532142Indulge them for now.Once we have a tribe we will have our revenge....
We manged to convince them that ten cows worth of goods was worth more than eighteen cows.
>>28532142Give them cows.Then we learn making of the Storm tribe.Then we'll have our own tribe. With blackjack. And hookers.
>>28532224Once we have our own tribe we destroy the Colymar
>>28532220Is there an apocalypse event involving the Colymars? Or do they just keep raiding you to provide an in-game incentive to make a tribe?
>>28532224and make sure our chief has heroic leadership and becomes king
Our exploration party found the major Horse-Spawn event. Baranthos pointed out to me that if we want to steal from them we should send no more than seven thanes, and a leader with both good Combat and Animals.>>28532241Can't destroy tribes unfortunately.>>28532263The latter. Given that they're a five clan tribe, life can get very uncomfortable.
>>28532289Do itfuck the horse spawn
Sending a party. Onelisin will lead, being that she has both Renowned Combat and Very Good Animals.Seven thanes will accompany her.
and then what happened?
>>28532556The animator suffered from a fatal heart attack.
Unfortunately it didn't take.Sorry for the delay.
>>28532566better that then the horse running into the middle of the camp with her on back
No more events. We could raid again.Give me two events for Storm season while I hit the Jenestni.
At least this raiding party managed to make it.
>>28532734hmmm, we got more weaponthanes but they got more footmen. I think they will charge, to use the advantage of their numbers, so go with skirmish for your 1st phase of battle
Both sides skirmishing is always fun. We happened to be better at it though.
The trader is back. There's a chance at a treasure here.
>>28532893If the white horse itself isn't a treasure, then exchanging it for one seems an obvious choice.
>>28532872We should adjust our patrols.
Damn. Pick another option.>>28532925It's not a treasure. 4 or no cows will get us a reputation boost with another clan.
>>28532952...isn't our reputation already maxxed out at "King"?
>>28533000Our general reputation is. Relations with specific clans isn't directly related to that.
>>28533028Then my vote's with four cows unless we get a larger rep boon with no cows.Do we know which tribe she's trading on behalf of?
Generosity is the greatest Orlanthi virtue. It gets you everything.>>28533267We don't until afterwards, as you can see.
Welcome to Storm season. We've got two actions to burn, and the Mule Deers to diplomance. We'll also want to learn the heroquest The Making of the Storm Tribe.Pic unrelated, but Onelisin's hatred of elves is hilarious.
Horses away. I'll offer up a sacrifice to one of the Storm Tribe deities to get the heroquest next action.>>28533378Nope.
Still no improvement in their feelings towards us. These people will be hard to convince.
>>28533434Are you sure we have time? Gifts + sacrifice + hero quest is 3 actions.
>>28533451shit, the mule deer love as much as they can without being allied with us
Here's the quest. We'll be tribing it up by the end of the year.>>28533459We'll be heroquesting next year. Already performed Lhankor Mhy Finds the Truth with Elusu.
End of year statistics. Note that we have positive sheep; means we can afford another shrine.
Huh, hunters will do well this year. I think there might be a connection between hunters and sickness rates, so I'm thinking another point in Hunting might keep us hale. Any thoughts/knowledge on that?
>>28533675shit why not?And lets sacrifice clovers to the space-crabs.
This must have burned, Baranthos, reporting that your replacement had transcended you in the field that matters most.Elusu is taking the chiefship immediately after we run him through one last Combat boosting quest.
Look at those stats. Just beautiful.Hell with it, Renowned Combat means he's ready for the chief's seat. Stats increase slowly over time, he'll hit Heroic before long. He's 23, he'll manage it.Give me an event for Sea, please.
>>28533926How are relationships with neighbours? Do we have all required alliances?
>>28533926Improve relationships with potential tribe members if possible. If that won't do anything, let's try to see if we can get our hands on more treasure.
Favor paying time. The Gorinds want us to spill the beans on Arene, chief of the Osgosi. I'm not sure if we know much about her, though Onelisin comments that she's too cautious.
>>28534009Do number 4 so they don't get too mad if we guess wrong.
>>28534009What the hell is an Osgosi?I guess #4 would be the best answer here.
Because we told him we weren't sure, he says we're not paying off the favor even if we're right. What do we tell him now?
>>28533926and so young!...He also looks like a swede I know...
>>28534103Fuck. If this isn't fulfilling our favour debt, then we have no investment in giving him a right answer. Just tell him any old nonsense.
>>28534070it is always wise to see if the ring members know anything about the chief in question
>>28534140Heortson says we only know she's too cautious, the Gorinds might ask about something else.
>>28534103Sooooo...what's the question?
>>28534155wellp. Guess I should pay more attention
>>28534172We can't know unless we commit to answering.
>>28534192Then lets take the risk and answer it.
>>28534133Her degree of piety. Which we know nothing about.Luckily we're already not responsible for the answer, so pick whichever you think is most amusing.
>>28534231She kicked orlanthi in the nuts
>>28534231Something is tempting about 1...
Excuse me, someone just pulled the plug on my desktop. I'm going to need a minute to get back in.
>>28533926Did Baranthos just abdicate?
No more Gorinds asking for advice. Instead we're celebrating a wedding. Note that the carls are VERY unhappy.>>28534393Elusu forced an election and pointed out that Baranthos got the job by being really good at hitting things, and that we needed a strong leader who recognnizes the power of unions to succeed in the future.
>>285342312, safe answer. These guys are our allies right? Just because we owe them a favor and it's not being paid off NOW doesn't mean that we're not being honest.What -DO- we know about the chief?
>>28534461oooh... That's gonna leave a rather angry Baranthos STEAMING in his stead for many a night
>>28534461fuck the carls! toast the other clan!
Carls approve +5.Give me another event for Sea season.>>28534466Had a computer failure, that event line never happened.
>>28534553We can afford a new temple now right? What ones would help us out?
>>28534569Any of them, since the costs for temple building are static. We'd have to learn a ritual first since we don't know many.Keep in mind, we do want to talk with the Mule Deers.>>28534595I actually had the Eurmalite temple event proc in my last game. So sad we haven't seen it here.
>>28534644Let's go talk with some muledeers then!
Elusu seems confident in our diplomacy ability, but their color hasn't changed. I wonder if there's some underlying system I'm not seeing?
Oh, I was reading the color wrong. They love us. Also owe us a favor now.
No time like the present.
Opening negotiations. What do we say to convince the long-planning tavern owning clan to ally with us?
The Vostangi tried a cattle raid. We spotted them. How do we answer?
>>28535577Kill 'em all, let Ornlanth sort 'em out.
Kill as many as possible. It'll make raiding them later easier.
>>28535577By killing them, naturally.
Lost a weaponthane. Baranthos's Heroic Combat really made a difference in our casualty lists. Here's hoping Onelisin and Elusu get up to speed fast.
Marriage politics. Joy. The ranking priestess of another tribe wants one of our thanes, who's interested in someone else.Most of the clan ring says he's got to marry her. Elusu also says that it'll score us an alliance. Onelisin objects and Kentvent abstains.
>>28535760What would a divination here actually do?
>>28535760Divination, see what our ancestors say about this.
>>28535760Let the ancestors decide! Divination time
>>28535760Forcing a marriage and sending him off to another clan against his will sounds an awful lot like selling a thrall to me.What reasoning do the circle members have for saying we should go through with it?
>>28535789Piss off the ancestors. The ring has authority over marriage matters.
>>2853580450 cows, alliance.>>28535810Okay, try convincing him then.
>>28535804Elusu and Orstalor want the alliance.Harran and Leika want the cows.Beneva thinks we could redistribute the cows as gifts and improve our reputation further.Heroic Leadership is awesome.
>>28535861Wooo. Another clan set to join the GREAT TRIBE OF THE NORTH.
We have our ring of allies. I think it's time for The Making of the Storm Tribe.>>28535877They're on the other side of the pass tragically.
Before we start, should I post what we know of the legend, or should we do it blind again?
>>28535965Depends. How badly would it hurt us to fuck it up? Blind runs are fun but not if we're risking an assraping.
>>28535965The making of the storm tribe is like one of the easiest, isn't it?Post the legend if you want.
>>28535977Every heroquest has the risk of getting your quester horribly killed.>>28535983It's not Uralda or Elmal, which is a point in its favor.
We're going to use Onelisin as our quester, since Vingans count as Orlanthi for heroquests and other events. Take her statline into consideration and she's ideal.
Option 1, please.I'm surprised that the Making of the Storm Tribe doesn't have any associated treasures.
Orlanth wants to beat the shit out of Yelm the Bad Emperor. Unfortunately, Yelm has a tribe and can wreck Orlanth's clan any day of the week. The solution is for Orlanth to get a clan of his own.The Doubting Wheel taunts Orlanth. How does Orlanth respond?
>>28536193Catch it in a net!
Onelisin tossed a net in that general direction and the wheel shrank to escape it. Unfortunately, it shrank too much and Onelisin caught it.
>>28536193The solution is obvious.
Plant monsters are attacking Yinkin, who belongs in the Storm Tribe. How does Orlanth get them off of them cat?
>>28536271Chop all deez bitches.
>>28536271If we follow the legend, then #1 may be correct, since Orlanth fights and bests both of them.
>>28536271Fight both of them.
This event can go either way if your Combat is high enough. We lost the battle but succeeded in the event. I'm pretty sure Onelisin's coming out of this injured.>>28536251Classic.
Dwarves have stuck Lhankor Mhy in a box. How does Orlanth get him out?Remember, Gloranthan dwarves are more like robots than underground mining bros.
>>28536355As tempting as number 5 is in it's stupidity, let's just hit the damn thing really hard.
>>28536355Reciting a poem here is the right thing to do, isn't it?
It's the poem isn't it?
Selecting the poem gives you a choice of poems to recite. The correct option is the poem no one has heard before.>>28536373I've managed to make 5 work. The Stone Tribe hates new things.
Vadrus needs to be in the Storm Tribe, but he has a grudge against Yinkin, that he wants to settle immediately. How does Orlanth convince Vadrus to put aside his feud long enough to attend the tribal moot?
>>28536493Punch him in the face to establish brotherhood.
>>28536493Lucky number 2.
>>28536528>>28536561Didn't work.What did work, to my surprise, was telling him to join the tribe to get at Yinkin.
>>28536072We really do need to do Elmal's soon though, don't we? Since he's our chief god?
One by one the gods are induced to attend the confederation moot. When they all gather they argue. How does Orlanth deal with the fractious gods?>>28536597Yep.
>>28536627The legend says that all the unifying happens when Ernalda brings the regalia, so maybe #3?
Waits for Ernalda. The regalia improves Charisma by 10 points.
>>28536627FIGHT FIGHT FIGHT.PUNCHING FIXES EVERYTHING.
>>28536677>>28536657No no, the legend says he was about to fight them all, THEN she came in with the regalia. Waiting makes us look like a bitch.
Where words could not hope to sway hearts, a display of leadership does the job. Some people still don't buy it, but for them...
>>28536493Never heard of Vadrus. Is he a god who's not worshipped anymore? Or did he become a god with a different name, possibly Humakt?
For them, a chance to see the benefits of tribal unity in practice showed up.>>28536718He's dead. Tried to hijack the Devil's power but was destroyed. He was kind of a dick, just look at the name of his clan.
>>28536757#3: Lead the fight against them (the Dark Tribe)
Leading the fight against the Night Tribe makes the other gods see the wisdom of having a tribe. The doubters fall in line and the Storm Tribe is formed.
Completing the heroquest wins our clan the divine right to form a tribe.
Earth season. We have to wait until Milk Eyes shows up again to form that tribe. Hopefully that'll be soon, we had the Colymar come by again (I bought them off with ten goods again, so I didn't bother taking a picture).Might be fun to go exploring again. Still plenty of map to see.
>>28536871Have we explored or sent an envoy to the Marsh Ducks yet? I think Orstalor went one time, but it never got to the ducks.
>>28536871did we finish exploring dorf fort?
>>28536911Don't think so, but dwarves are bugged for us, since they've approached us for trade despite our never having met them. Might not be a good idea to go though their events at this point.
>>28531520Wait, are you cheating, or can you actually get that good at KoDP?
Have to step away for a bit, be back soon.>>28536909Haven't interacted with them at all. Sent an envoy to the Rune Ducks once or twice.>>28536911Haven't even found the mine yet.
>>28536871What can we do about those farmers.
>>28537190Carls gon' carl.
So we gon go 'splorin or what?
>>28537474think OP may be spending irl magic to divine with ancestors for advice
Back real soon I promise. Need to finish my sacrifice to the paycheck spirits.
That took both more and less time than I thought it would. Back now. Seems we have a vote each for exploring Dwarf Valley and approaching the Marsh Ducks. I'm open to either; at this point we're just waiting for Milk Eyes.
>>28538158Let's go for Dorf valley, first. The dorfs are essential for endgame events, whereas the Marsh Ducks can wait for a bit.
Go befriend the Dwarves, Baranthos.
Off-screen antics have come to bite us in the ass. Kentvent seems to know something about it, but it's hard to tell what the right thing to do is since nobody bothered to tel us what happened.
>>28538422Pay the cows. We can't afford to look miserly when we're going to form a tribe.
Our largess soothes him.
Someone suggested meeting the Marsh Ducks, so it's off to Upland Marsh. Here's hoping Harvar does better than the last guy we sent there.
While normally it'd be time to raid [insert feuding clan here], we're short on thanes. I'm picking up five more, then we'll hit the Jenestni.
>>28538594Well, somebody's gotta pay for those thanes' cows.
Baranthos' exploration party return with an interesting individual: A thane from Heortland outlawed for standing up for truth, justice and the Orlanthi way.Reasonable Orstalor is back, and with advice.
>>285387041 sounds good.
Free weaponthane, always cool.
>>28538778Bitch got moxie. We need bitches with moxie.How is our bitches with moxie quota doing Heortson?
We've just received reports that the Upland Marsh is stuffed with undead. Elusu thinks we have a shot at convincing the clans to back off of the ducks, which is a fantastic (if difficult) way to contain the undead. Helping directly has the best chance of success.>>28538825Depends, do Vingans count? Onelisin is our current war leader.
>>28538883Tell the other clans to stop being dicks to the ducks
>>28538883#4. There's a time and place for Orlanthi football, and this isn't it.
>>285388833 yoBURN THE UNDEAD!
It worked! Elusu is awesome.
>>28538883We need that. Back off the ducks definitely. Also we get an alliance from the Rune Ducks alright?
Looking back the horsespawn and trolls have barely raided us in the last few years
This could be fun. A divorce has gotten ugly, and the wife is from the Lystangs, who really don't like us. One false move and it's feud time.>>28538958Nope. It's really, really hard to get the Ducks to ally with you.
>>28539027What does the Ring have to say?
>>28539027Let's send an envoy to the rune ducks now then? I'm pretty sure that the last time screwed up due to trickster shenanigans
>>28539044They've split entirely. Harran points out that all cows are basically the same and we should point that out to her, Elusu says that she'd listen best to her clan mates, but that could backfire spectacularly, Kentvent wants to talk her down, and Leika, Onelisin and Beneva want to pay her double just end it.>>28539016First: Don't jinx it.Second, they're an early game event. Once you're strong enough to beat them back regularly they stop showing up.
>>28539027I'm thinking 1 or 2 personally. We got the massive leadership from our leader to handle it.
>>28539027just give her the cows and be done with it
Crisis averted. Again, Elusu is awesome.>>28539066It's worth a shot. I've only ever managed to get them to ally once, and that was with Heroic Bargainer and Customs.
>>28539121Well let's try it :) we got the Great Northern Tribe ready.
Football time. Prepare for losses though, we no longer have a Heroic war leader. What are we doing to them?
>>28539160Drop some of our enormous magic supply into it. say 5 points of magic and use a treasure or two, that'll counter our losses
>>28539160Kill as many as possible, I don't like the number of men they can muster.
Vastyr has Excellent Leadership, Very Good Combat and Good Magic. Keep in mind that healing yourself is the retreat option.
Vastyr couldn't get anyone to follow him, so he counter-charged alone and succeeded. MVP.
>>28539328>Astella distinguished herselfAstella and not Vastyr? RNG, why do you deny the MVP?
Trolls in the tula. I think we'll be driving them off since we want them out more than anything.
>>28539373got jinxed huh lol
>>28539359Astella is the one from >>28538704 Sounds like she might continue to distinguish herself.
Onelisin has Excellent Magic and Renowned Combat.>>28539397I didn't even check that. So she'll be a recurring character, cool.
>>28539160BLOOD AND THUNDERCHARGE AND PLUNDERTEAR JENESTNI DOGS ASUNDERMAKE THEIR BLOODY LAND A WONDERPROVE THEIR VERY LIVES A BLUNDER
>>28539464Bit late there, we already beat them pretty nicely. We're on invasive trolls now.Consider those lines gleefully stolen though.
>>28539495Can we see the new borders some time soon? Also when tribe forming?
>>28539536I think we have to wait for the milk eyed prophet.
>>28539536Borders haven't changed since last time I showed them off. Tribe forming will happen when the event triggers, which could be after this or ten in-game years from now.Can i get an action for Onelisin?
>>28539495Replace "Jenestni" "the Trollkin" and you're good to go."Go where the fighting is worst" is my vote.
I can't tell if this is a good resolution or a poor one.
>>28539573Didn't know you were taking a vote for that. It doesn't get any better than Renowned combat, so you won't find a better candidate to "go where the fighting is worst"
>>28539600There are no words.
All in all, not terrible.>>28539605Renowned Combat really can't stand up to Heroic. With Baranthos on the ring, we might have gotten through this event without any injuries or fatalities.
>>28539629Shit, you're right, I keep forgetting the order.
Storm season. I'm sending Jarstakos with gifts to the Rune Ducks. For Storm 2, we might try treasure trading again, or exploring. Still events in the swamp, and the dwarves.
It's hard to understand those quackpots.
Heh, the Jenestni showed up. Thank you Tarard Riel, I never see cattle raid coming normally.What do we do to them?
>>28539712"Kill as many as possible" has a nice ring to it.
We got them.
>>28539745lol all of them were either killed or wounded
The cooking contest has arrived. We'll get wrecked if we participate normally, and the event counts as a free feast if we pick 2. 1 is a chance to improve relations with a clan of our choice, and 5 will tell you that the other clans are not opposed to tribe-forming...but we still have to wait for Milk-Eyes.>>28539790We got them good.
>>285398025 sounds good. But 2 is tempting. My vote goes to whichever one other people want the most.
>>28539833I should have clarified: 5 is off the table since all it says is that other clans are unopposed to tribe-making. We want something with benefits.Small meta knowledge interdiction.
>>28539802I don't imagine we can get 1 to move the Rune Ducks to alliance status, then?
>>28539885hohoh we should cook duck stew
Went with feasting. Didn't seem to help, damn the carls.>>28539885The Ducks aren't invited to Orlanthi events, awesome as they are they aren't Orlanthi.>>28539905Do you want us to get slaughtered horribly?
>>285398021 has the most immediate benefit, the free feast doesn't do much for us because we have food to spare, 5 tells us what we already know, and as you said, entering is useless.
THE TIME HAS COME! We're going to have to be careful if we want to form the Great Northern Tribe.Next year we'll want to perform Making of the Storm Tribe again to become capable kingmakers, should help kick us into the endgame faster.
>>28539969oh do 2 first~
Generosity is always a virtue.What now? Starting immediately will start immediately.
>>28540013If you think performing the Making Storm etc. quest again is really worth it, I defer to your judgment, but as someone who's never gotten anywhere near this far along, I gotta say I'm rather antsy to just make the tribe so we don't have some random event fuck up our alliances.
>>28540013oh well i guess we could just fuck up the ducks to get their land later
In the spirit of getting the ball rolling, I decided to start immediately.>>28540075We can start immediately and still run Making of the Storm Tribe. The way it works is that once every season you pick a clan, and then next season you meet and determine what you want from the clan and what they'll get in the tribe.
Our last event before tribe forming starts in earnest. What are we doing: trading, exploring, building? I'd like to explore or trade.
>>28540151send a gift to the ducks
>>28540151Can we explore our own tula or is everything already found there?
>>28540204There are two or three events left I'm pretty sure.Anyone have a preference for hometula exploration or duck negotiations?
>>28540159>>28540217How well do the ducks like us?
>>28540217Let's go quackers.
Always nice being nice to your neighbors.>>28540237Pretty well actually. We want them as best friends though.
>>28540237They're as blue as they're gonna get without being allied to us.Let's do home tula exploration.
That's it for the year!
>>28540283So how do we start building The Great Northern Tribe?
>>28540204think you can check via praying to ancestors or something to ask
>>28540298lets think of a name pre-emptively for one
>>285402771628 food produced...1240 food eaten... 433 spoiled...We have a 45 bushels of food deficit. Should we be concerned?
An excellent omen for the year.Okay, that's it for tonight. I'll be out for turkey day, but the day after will see the formation of our tribe. Start brainstorming names, I think we've got ten letters.Oh, next thread I'll post the stories of the heroquests we did before. KoDP includes a lot of Gloranthan lore, which is a great primer for the Rune Quest campaign setting.>>28540298After arranging to meet with a clan, you approach them with a list of demands and concessions unique to that clan. You have to give enough concessions to balance your demands in order for them to attend the tribal meeting.At the meeting, you convince the other clans to stand by the agreements you formed with them. Once that's done, you elect a king who rules until death. There's a lot of politicking to be had. It's a lot of fun if you've got leaders with the right stats (and kingmaking powers from the Storm Tribe quest).>>28540375Nah. We've got a massive food surplus, one good year (not this year) will be enough to cover us for five. We also trade for food, which happens behind the scenes.Any other questions? I'll be around for a bit while I eat.
>>28539373>slipped past our patrols and could ONLY bring 25 weaponthanes and 154 fyrd
>>28540367North Star Tribe!
>>28540463>>28540480Well, our clan is named Fimbulvintr. Which is the period right before Ragnarok in Norse mythology. Perhaps a post-Ragnarok name would be appropriate, or whatever norse word is used for the creation of the world.
>>28540545Hoddmímis holt, the forest where the survivors of Ragnarok wait out the fimbulvetr. In all honesty, Hoddmimis might be a better name for the town. Great idea though.
>>28540593Well, if we're going chronologically, then Ragnarok would come next.
>>28540697Ragnarok is what we do to the people who don't get out of our way to greatness. Shouldn't worry to much about chronology, we're not Norse, we're Norse themed.
>>28540773welp! good game for tonight. its like 3am zzz off to sleep.cya day after turkey day
