continuing from >>37705917Now, this will only be a short thread since I've got to go to work in 4 hours, but I'll still run it.>writing up the study from last round, you also rolled to get cider, but that was with idea roll, which you'd already used to learn agriculture. One action remaining.
>>37710372>>37710772Hiega decides that the lake nearby needed a good look into, and starts wandering its shores every morning. Before long, she has realised, that not only is it a great source of water, but it also contains some very big fish. Big enough to threaten an elf, but also big enough to make a decent meal for an ogre. The lake itself is big, and though you do not have a way to measure it, you know that it is easily big enough to sustain your people. She also notices, that animals often come to the lake to drink, including animals from the forest. This might be a good way to entrap more animals to domesticate.
Rolled 6 (1d20)>>37719940Rolling for players. Also, at the end of this turn, imma give you guys a bonus event, partly because I think it'd be fun to, but mostly to make up for me vanishing last night.
Ah, I guess starting this at 10am UK time makes it a bad time overseas. I won't be able to run this tonight, and I don't know if any of you guys will read this, but if you do, then I'm aiming to run this probably around 7 or 8pm UK time tomorrow.
>>37720359:( ill be busy doing real life stuff then
Rolled 75 (1d100)>>37719940Get idea to divide jobs.Scouts/HuntersGuardsFarmersWriters/Priest/Dancer
>>37721738you forgot the most important ones: the cooks
>>37721738I was planning to make some Elfs priest of our elven Goddess in the long turn. Also I wouldn't separate Dancers from the others. Everyone is supposed to Dance. Dance to get better Hunting Results, Dance for Rain, to get better Agriculture. Dance Haka for the fight and so on. But I'm tired and probably going to break soon...Also what you want is called a Caste System, and we should get +15 on it...
>>37722896A caste system only becomes such after positions become hereditary.What i suggested is specialization of roles.Also i meant that some Ogres get to be the scribes,priests and dancers at the same time (think bards who are also priests).
>>37721664Novice here, monitoring this thread on my mobile. Feel free to suggest any ideas for future stuff here and ill make sure theyre brought up in discuSsion
>>37724167I honetly like the way you lead. It doesn't feel like railroading, or at least, it doesn't feel like it's impossible to break the railroads...
>>37724317Railroading isnt my intention, i know my setting and where you are in it. Still decided exactly when in it you are though. It depends on whether you want humans to ever show up. So yeah, im just seeing what youll do in my setting really, got no iron clad plans for you besides throwing events at you now and then
Soif anybody is here, do you ever fancy seeing humans or would you prefer not to?
>>37725607Humans are to eh, I could just play Age of Empires or actual Civ for that.
Rolled 4 (1d20)Rolling to scout all of the hills.
>>37725607as someone to talk to, sure. As an actual race, eesh, I'd just agree as galbatorix. Not that there aren't good human civs, like matryoshka, thats a good one. But races add some distinct flavor that make us different from quest quests
Short message from me, in exchange for previous advertising in elephant Civ.Primordial Civ failed in 6 posts, so I have a free evening to run a civ thread in. What do people want me to do?My apologies for any interruption.
>>37727881Fair enough, im just figuring out when to set this on my timeline. We have a 4000 year spread in which you can be set before man shows up, if you'd rather not bump into humanity then ill set you down earlier on the timeline
>>37729395Please, it would be cool for a cool guy like you to join in.
>>37729429Oh, I thought you meant as a Civ. I'd like humanity to show up to be bros, but it's all up to you man.
>>37729237the plan would be for them to just show up as a faction.>>37729395Definitely elephant civ.
Thread's over here>>37729810
>>37729190You know what? Since I've messed you guys around recently, ill give you this one freely. Enjoy the updated map.
>>37731822That's pretty cool of you.Cool enough that don't care about my neck breaking to read this.Still pretty cool.
>>37731877Sorry, im on my mobile, otherwise id have rotated it for you guys
>>37731996It's okay, I can rotate it myself.
>>37731822Also, noticed the rip Bugg.I like to believe he tamed the beast.Maybe on day he'll return.Right guys?
>>37732070Who knows? I put RiP because he was older than Olgruff, so even if he tamed it... Well, still, who knows?Any other thoughts on the map?
>>37732182I like it, would like a higher quality one, maybe you could take 4 pictures of it in quadrants?
>>37732595Sure, in bed at the moment, but in 6 hours ill be up so ill sort it then.
>>37732732Alright>Goodnight sweet prince
Bump in the night.
>>37735606only Ogres go bump in the night friend0
>>37740727yay! So, what's the plan?
Image one, sorry its sideways edition
Reporting in before I fall asleep
>>37740823Still at work for another hour, so im just on my mobile really. It'll be another hour after that until i can post, and only then for a couple hours. Still, ill do my best to get stuff done then. Until then, image twostill, get an action etc ready for when i get back!
Four. New rule: study is an optional action per round, and joining it in this category is the new investigate action. You roll a 1d30 to investigate a location on the map. The higher youroll, the more information youll receive, and the more chance youll go unseen whilst doing so. Happy scouting!
Rolled 17 (1d20)>>37741273What about an idea?Action: Make Sloth Leather Armour for the whole tribe. >>37741433So basically, either scout or study?
>>37741531Thats right. Scout or study. Youget an idea roll yes.As the study roll for leather armour was done before, the roll outfit the whole tribes highly successful!
>>37741669Question: Does Mythology actually do something or is it just Fluff? What about Magic? I think in all the other Civ Games, people develop Magic after a while. We also developed weak Healing Magic I think...Idea: Get an Idea of Channels, to be able to Dig a Channel from the Lake to our Camp, so we can build Wells, and generally Stuff that requires Water...
>>37741727Mainly fluff, we shall see. And awesome idea, roll for it.
Rolled 12 (1d100)>>37741727roll>>37741906Hmm, tbh, I would prefer if it had some effect, because that would mean we don't throw out Idea Rolls for something like that.
>>37741964>Rolled 12 (1d100)Well, building an Channel uphill was a stupid Idea anyway...
>>37741964To be honest, it Will make more of a difference when religion becomes more organised with temples etc
>>37742119Oh, ok that was my plan anyway, so that's good. (I wanted to make Channels so we could build a temple/bathhouse)
Okay guys, at a friends house with internet access, here for just under an hour and a half. What would you guys like to do? There are some options already, like:>>37741964>>37721738Still need a study or investigate action if you want to do one. If nobody replies soon, i'll just write up >>37721738
Rolled 7 (1d12)study the fist
>>37721738Togg decides, upon looking over his tribe, that things are too disorganised. He needs to get people working. He decides to give out assignments to people, and make it so certain people specialise in certain things. Soon, the Wartwerk has invented the concept of a job, and their civilisation now has dedicated hunters and scouts, guards, farmers, priests etc. But all of them dance.>>37743423The fish are big, (pic related), and carniverous. They could easily be farmed if you control the population of the smaller fish in the lake. New turn1 Action1 Idea1 study or investigate
Rolled 19 (1d20)>>37743521Well, let's farm the catfish then.
Rolled 37 (1d100)>>37743521Idea: Improve Architecture, I want to be able to build some nice looking temples in the near future.
>>37743559The fish respond well to the efforts of Hemm and Togg, and soon, the tribe has a high function fish farm, giving the tribe a surplus of food. The surplus of food leads to a population boom, and your tribe now numbers 200 ogres, and the one cave and the houses aren't enough to house them anymore. Togg considers moving back into the old cave.
Rolled 11 (1d30)Investigate the Lake: There must be a river somewhere entering and exiting the lake.
>>37743620Kim chisels away at the cave wall, attempting to recreate the face of Olgruff. She wasn't doing too badly, but it wasn't great either. As she did this, she began to wonder about the design of the cave wall, how to make it look more like a home than a hole, when Togg came in, and berated her for not doing his father the proper justice, and smashes the carving with his hammer. Angry and upset, Kim throws her tools down the hillside, and sits by the cave entrance sulking for the rest of the day.>>37743650Your tribe investigates the lake, but they cannot find any sign of a river anywhere. The only thing they found out, is that trying to measure the depth of the lake proved impossible; even using their largest tree as a measuring stick, it did not reach the bottom.
>>37743814New turn.1 Action1 Idea1 Study or Investigate actionYou can see great plumes of smoke coming from the forest in the south.
>>37743814How's our military force right now?
>>37743848You have about a hundred ready and capable adult males equipped with leather armour and copper/stone weapons/clubs. This is led by Grunn Tree-Axe, who true to his name, has an axe made out of a fallen tree. He's also half troll.
Okay guys, I need to go now. If the thread is still up in about.... 6 hours or so I'll carry on then. I'll monitor the thread on my mobile when it's not rude for me to do so, as I'll be at my girlfriends house until teatime.Make sure to post an action, idea, and study/investigation for me to write up when I get back.
>>37743920okay. A general question: I normally wait like 5-10 Minutes between my posts so others can do something. Would you prefer a shorter Duration? Or should I wait longer?
>>37744002Post as much as you like, i don't think i ever have enough players for it to be a problem really.
Rolled 20 (1d100)>>37743841Idea: city planing. plan the structure of your city to make it more efficient for military and economic purposes.
Rolled 1 (1d20)>>37743841Action rollExpand the settlement to include the old cave.
Rolled 5 (1d12)>>37743841Investigate actionInvestigate the source of the fires.
>>37744450>>37744464>>37744475And this is why I wait 5 Minutes. R'nge hates these fast posts. He's not here at the moment, and I don't think he will do the turn on his mobile...Also we should do something about our Military, to be able to protect ourself against the Fire Lizards.Expanding into the old Cave should end very badly, especially, as there are the Fire Lizards, which should also explain your investigation.
Rolled 5 (1d20)>>37744464I say we better fortify our Settlement against a second Attack.
am i the only one around here who would like to see more focus on preparing and eating delicious food than on this dancing stuff?without that, are we even allowed to call ourselves ogres? im not saying we have to totally abolish dancing, we could even integrae it all eating, alcohol and dancing into big orgies.
>>37744475Investigate is a 1d30. Should be home in 2 and a half hours, Will write up whats been rolled then.
Rolled 26 (1d30)>>37746195Derp
bumping, going to be writing up in a sec, just got home
troll civilization is up too, if anyone was curious.Also, Novice, when are your running times, or do you not have a set schedule thing? What timezone do you live in?>>37747196
>>37747262I don't really have a schedule, as things often change last minute with me, so I just tend to run things when I have time available, I'm on UK times, so I'm currently at about 5pm
>>37747218It's Ogre time yess.
I am here, get ready to fearThe DanceOf the Ogres
>>37746207Kim, still upset from her efforts on recreating the visage of the father Olgruff, had wandered far from the tribe. She was the first to see the plumes of smoke rising up from the woods in the south, and she crept forwards, to take a peek through the trees. She saw a small village there, with strange tall creatures, stood about looking over a small lake. She crept past the village, making a note to check it out more thoroughly on the way back. In the lake was an island, covered in huts that were set ablaze. Small figures darted this way and that, their silhouettes reminding Kim of frogs, and amongst the flames and smoke, she saw elves in blood red armour, chasing the figures with weapons drawn. The figures seemed to have weapons made of some kind of shiny rock, that seemed to cause the elves immense pain when struck by it, but the elves were strong and though slower than the silhouettes, they methodically hunted them down. Some elves were stood at the back with torches, setting all traces of civilisation aflame.Kim quietly retreated, but when she went past the village from before, she saw no sign of the tall horned humanoids.
Rolled 1 (1d20)>>37747571Elves slaying Minotaurs. Huh.Well, I'd like to roll for expanding the Ogre village, maybe going back to the old cave?
>>37747621>>37744464Seems like somebody really doesn't want us to go back to the old cave
>>37747641Yeah, it appears so.
>>37747571>>37744450Togg decided his city needed order, and began drawing up plans on the cave wall. the plans looked good. He was all set to make these plans a reality, when he realised that he was set to build the granary right next to the toilet block, and reconsidered his design. Moving the granary around turned out to mess up all his other plans. He threw a rock at the wall in frustration, destroying his plans.Togg spent several days without emerging from the cave since then.>>37744464Ferth, the eldest woman of the tribe, decided that she wanted to see her birthplace one last time, before dying, and managed to convince a group of ogres to accompany her, and build up the old cave again. Upon reaching it, they found it exactly as they left it.Weeks later, Togg came to inspect their progress, and there was no sign of Ferth or of her ogres...
Rolled 6 (1d100)>>37747571Idea: Develop a Dance to Cleanse all evil from a Person.
>>37747621Not minotaurs, but I shall say no more yet.>>37747621Holy shit, that's two 1's in a row for that so far.I maaaay ignore that, as it was posted before I finished the end of turn stuff, but we shall see.

Rolled 10 (1d20)>>37747716That was for last turn, be merciful oh mighty Qm.>>37747716Action: Send a war party to the cave, no one makes our kin disappear without us curb stomping them to ground while performing a pirouette!
I really have a bad feeling that the elves gonna turn out evil and try to butcher us like the minotaurs. I want to save some of them before we have to kill them all :(
>>37747787Well, the Wood Elves are fine, so far. My guess is those guys are some sort of High Elves, the really douchey master race ones.
>>37747829Well, he used the same picture for both of them, I think.
>>37747836Maybe it's his only picture of Elves he lies to use, I dunno man.
>>37747860Maybe, anyway, I don't think it would hurt to develop a way to cleanse someone of Evil.My actual plan:>create a dance to cleanse evil from someone>convince some elves to join the tribe as prists of our Elven God>secretly cleanse evil from them, with the cleanse dance as cleansing stuff will be their job anyway, and healing and cleansing is kinda similar>have safe Elves you can Trust>become Holy Ogres Maybe add a build Temple somewhere...
>>37747860>>37747836>>37747829>>37747787Well... you'll have to wait and see.....>>37747707As a point, I'm not running with the standard dnd concepts of evil and good etc, everything is just as it is, due to motivations, causes, etc.
Rolled 23 (1d100)>>37747992Well, then get the Idea of Organized Religion with Temples instead.Something else, can somebody ask the elves if they tried talking with the Dragon Lizards
>>37748034Wow, my rolls really suck today...
Rolled 92 (1d100)>>37748034Don' worry bro, I got you.
>>37747992mmaybe something to cleanse people of malevolant spirits. A sort of smite subjective evil, we smite what we see as evil, you cans till have nebulous evil ambiguity with self righteous people who are sure of what they think is evil and not

Rolled 11 (1d12)>>37748268Don't worry bro, I got you.>>37748320War party please.>>37748320We should study all the Elves dances, and the way they dance, so we can get better than them.
Rolled 19 (1d20)>>37748320War party to old cave. The troll roll was to low.
>>37748347That cave is gonna die.
>>37748373I support the cave, but not with a roll
>>37748414Well, a 13 and a 19 is pretty good, don't wanna fuck up.
>>37748034>>37748083Inspired nonetheless by Kims attempted craftswork, Togg declared that the main hall of the cave be dedicated to his father. Soon, a temple is crafted, and many come to pay their respects to the man, and the god. Shortly after this, priests become part of the ordeal, and spend most of their days inside the temple. Soon, several tenets become widespread because of this, all food related, as they were secretly based upon Olgruff's cookbook.1. Do not store food near waste2. Salted meat lasts longer3. So does smoked meat(4 onwards: etc)Because of this excellent advice, the tribe has a much healthier diet, and as such, disease is down.Your current population is 300 ogres. Your tribe is now a village.>>37748347Old Grunn personally leads several war-trained ogres to retake the old cave. Upon arriving, they find no sign of the previous endeavor there, but instead catch shadows fleeing the scene, from the corners of their eye. They give chase, but finding nothing, return to the cave. Soon, the cave is heavily fortified, and ready for more ogres to return.>>37748341>Writing
>>37748341Determined to redeem herself, Kim invites herself to an elven dance at Fairth, and though the elves are surprised at her presence there, they seem all but too happy to expose her to more elven culture. She saw many dances there, all performed on a large, raised wooden platform, and though elven dancing often is far too removed from Wartwerks usual style to be incorporated without seeming ridiculous, she picks up many tips to perfect the dances the village already makes use of. >Belly dancing perfected>Ye Olde street dancing perfected>Haka perfected>Elven dancing inspiration https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fxM_tVFhsxsNew turn.1d20 action1d100 idea1d12 study or 1d30 investigate
I think we should either look into the elven history about that part where they killed the humans, or ask the elves about all the other elf kingdoms.

>>37749200yay, a roll above a ten!
It's the dead of night, and your village sees something bizarre silhouetted against the ever-still stars. From the southern forest, a figure rises from the treeline after a chilling, bestial scream. It looks smaller than an ogre, but horned, with clawed hands and strange, hoofed feet. It's running as quickly as it can, somehow treading nothing but air, yet still rising. Flames erupt around its feet, and its hoofs burn away, leaving nothing but stumps. Its running motions become faster and faster, until it's just a blur. Eventually, it crashes to the ground, not far from your village. It has the head of a feral elk with jagged teeth and sharp antlers, its humanoid legs end in blackened, burnt stumps. >>37749125>>37749197>>37749200An average of seven, but bonuses for supporting rolls beef that up to about ten ish.Many of your people panic, but Togg manages to keep the warriors calm. Many ogres are ready to fight, but many of them are also terrified by the corrupted creature before them, stalking out of the trees.The creature suddenly grabs hold of one of the ogres that had fell into panic, and runs into the air with her, disappearing into the night. The villagers look around frantically, but find no sign of Kim of the creature. They had vanished, but Togg is certain that the threat is not ended. He is proven right when it appears again, stalking Togg from on top of Olgruff's old home. It emitts a loud howl. Roll 1d300.

>>37749462And the good ones it seems. Thanks.
>>37749378Luckily for you, lower was better. The number dictated how many of your troops succumbed to crippling fear. 28 of your warriors closest to the creature are now cowering in fear. >>37749399This one isn't so good, most of the rest of your troops are panicked.Roll 1d113
Rolled 96 (1d113)>>37749615
Rolled 20 (1d113)>>37749615Well, Let's go for the worst Result possible
Rolled 92 (1d113)>>37749615Okay, let's go, either huge or terrible.
Rolled 36 (1d113)>>37749615Let's see where this goes.
Rolled 5 (1d20)>>37749638This is... also not great. 96 of your troops are unnerved, but still capable of fighting (the panicked troops can be rallied, but the cowering ones need to wait it out, unfortunately Togg was one of them).Luckily though, Grunn was not in either of these situations. He is one of the 16 lucky ogres to escape the fear effect. He stands ready, but your forces are scattered, your tribe leader cowering. And Grunn isn't as young as he used to be.The wendigo begins to emmit a strange noise, like a juttering scraping of crystal on glass. Strange green energies swirl around Togg, centering on his head.So guys, what do you do?
Rolled 10 (1d20)>>37749792Dance the Haka, like it's the last time we get to dance it?
Rolled 16 (1d20)>>37749792We use the power of Dance, and rally our troops against this beast.

>>37749850>>37749865>>37749919Alright, partial success with all modifiers. Rolling to see how many of the unsettled ogres feel the groove and shake it off.
>>3774998326 Plus the roll from this post feel the groove.
Rolled 43 (1d70)>>37750005holy shit tg, roll the bloomin' dice!
>>37750037Okay, let's go!
What ever happens, if we manage to kill it, I want us to eat it! A Feast Olgruff would be proud of!
>>37750091So what's the plan? Charge at it? Wait what it does and try to react? Try to outsmart it somehow?
>>37750144He'll make a post, don't worry.
>>37750037Grunn surveys the scene. Ogres running left right and center. A cackling mad were-beast upon the lords old house, Ogres exchanging worried, doubt-filled glances. He remembers Olgruff, standing defiant against the Jhirahk in his youth, and lights a great torch, holds it up, and yells as loudly as he can muster."Who wins the fight!?"Many ogres turn their heads, seeing Grunn's great shadow flickering across the village in the light of his torch. The Ogres who still retain all their senses, grab their weapons, and with hesitation at first, but less later, clash them together to make a steady beat. "WHO WINS THE FIGHT?" Grunn yells louder."It is death! It is death!" The ogres respond in chant, clashing their weapons together and stamping their feet in unison, and some of the Ogres who had previously been unsettled, begin to shake off the fear, and begin to join."It is death! It is death!" Grunn looks at the wendigo as it hisses in the night, and setting the end of his tree-axe ablaze, he raises his weapon high. "This is the hairy man" he starts, waiting expectantly for the rest of the village to chime in. "Who will butcher you! Butcher you!"More respond now, and with much greater fervour. The dance gets more and more extravagant, as more and more ogres join. "These are the hairy men," Grunn yells, the ogre to his right, now wielding Grunn's torch, uses it to point at the performing ogres in a wide arc. "Who will butcher you! Butcher you!" The words are repeated twice, before the haka comes to a close."The stars shine!" Grunn yells, and now, eighty-five ogres reply. "Upon victory! Victory!""And to the nightmare's doom!" He yells, readying his weapon to charge.The beast itself seems totally unaffected by the wardance, but it had a good effect on rallying your people.>Wat do?
Rolled 11 (1d20)>>37750317Charge the fucker.
Rolled 16 (1d20)>>37750317Charge in formation. You have over 100 ogres to combat it.
Rolled 20 (1d20)>>37750382>>37750350Charge!!!
>>37750401Damn straight, no one fucks with Ogre Clan
>>37750401Awe yeah, rolling out the bad rolls was totally worth it!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MDJi8Qo2nck
>>37750455>Not available in my countryThis is what being away from the rest of the world feels like.
>>37750500get proxmate mate!
>>37750401well, nicely done. I need to get myself home before I get stuck here because of frost though. Should only take 15-25 minutes though, so I'll post a reply then.Also gives me some time to think about something awesome for you guys as a reward for the best roll of this thread thus far.See you guys soon, sorry for the delay!
>>37750633Yo man, it's cool.I'm really excited for your next post.
>>37750633Yeah, take your time. I'm just going to post Deutschrap to keep the people here entertained...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0WvKiD-PSC4
>>37750805I guess there is German white guy rap.
>>37750963And this is how our German Black Guy Rap sounds...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7MqmuWM93m8[NSFW - Sound]...it's probably one of the most degenerate Song ever produced. And it's fucking awesome!
>>37751065I agree, with half of it being moaning.Well, agreeing on the degenerate part.
>>37751199Well, the lyrics in the refrain are basically "Nigga bang me" on repeat. So like said, one of the most degenerate songs from that time...But the song is like 12 years old. And this is Germanrap today...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DWHUD500z8E
Okay guys, home now, sorry it took so long, had to sort some stuff out regarding work in the morning. Stupid icy lanes, can't wait until I have a car instead of a moped. They don't do so well on a 36 mile commute to work either.Gimme a sec to do some last minute stuff, and I'll be writing.
>>37751778Are you trying to pull a Dumb and Dumber in real life?
Rolled 3 (1d20)>>37751852Never seen it, so I can't comment. Throw 'trying to motivate girlfriends' into the mix of stuff i'm juggling though now. Also, rolling for wendigo combat roll.>writing
>>37751932Looks like the Wendigo didn't stand a "Ghost of a chance".
Rolled 7 (1d20)>>37751932The stars shine brightly behind the wendigo, giving it a menacing silhouette. The smell of decay that comes off it is enough to make even an ogres stomach lurch. The energies coming from it, flow straight into Togg, who begins screaming, grasping at imaginary phantoms. As he writhes around, panicked, the ground trembles.Eighty five ogres, all equipped with mighty axes and clubs, charge. The stampede sounds like thunder, and as they charge, they chant "Butcher you!" repeatedly, in time to the footsteps.The wendigo hisses, and leaps out to counter attack, but Grunn, at the front of the charge, readies his mighty axe, and roars, as he stabs at the shadowy beast, impaling it with the tip of his axe, then swinging around, and slamming it into the ground, leaving a vertical gaping wound upon it's body. When it lands, all the other ogres crowd around it, doing their best to subdue the beast. Their smackdown of the nightmare in flesh, rouses those panicked ogres from their dismay, and they rally, instantly, and soon, you have 159 more ogres joining the fray. The beast is not finished yet, however, it still has a trick up it's metaphorical sleeve.Roll 1d20.
Rolled 18 (1d20)Is it going to make us go insane?
>>37752293Well, We could try to tame it!
Rolled 9 (1d20)>>37752323Not with its roll and your roll it's not.One last roll. 1d20 guys, come on!
Rolled 16 (1d20)>>37752348one roll
>>37752364Ooh baby this Wendigo just Wendigwent out the window!
>>37752530I still kinda want to tame it. Imagine releasing a Wendigo when the Dragon Lizards come back or when the Evil Elves try to remove us...
>>37752323The wendigo reaches out, and tries to grapple Grunn. Grunn senses a kind of weird magical 'tugging' from it as it tries, and backs off, roaring angrily. The wendigo, in panick, starts to run. Up into the sky. >>37752364But too late, for Grunn swings his axe down with a blow so mighty, that he swats it out of the air, smashes it into the ground, and splits the very rock beneath it's now motionless corpse. "WHO WINS THE FIGHT?!" Grunn screams."It is death! It is death!" The people replied, in chorus. >New deity obtained>Grunn, the incarnation of deathThe people dance, celebrating their victory."Wartwerk march to victoryWartwerk staunch and trueWartwerk march to gloryTake the honour of your people with youYou will march, march, march to the enemyAnd will fight right to the endFor Gods, for Lords and People, You will march, march, march to the enemyAnd the enemy will give in!">Victory dance and song acquired.In the aftermath of the fight, Kim returns, disheveled and distressed, but otherwise none the worse for wear. Togg, on the other hand, is another matter. He see's ghosts and phantoms in his sleep, and he cannot rest peacefully. He isn't as young as he once was, and many tribesmen now worry that the shock to his system has caused him to fall into senility.But for now, his people dance, for none died at the hands of the nightmare.
>>37752530You make a pun like that again and I'll toss YOU out the window oh god that was horrible.>>37752581Why is there always at least one guy who thinks keeping one of your worst enemies alive is a good thing? Just kill the damn thing and be done with it.Its like you guys never read the evil overlords guidebook. even if you want to be good its a very handy read.
Rolled 19 (1d20)>>37752625I say, hold a feast with Wendigo Meat, invite the elves and celebrate our Victory with our new Dance?>The wendigo is actually the tastiest Boar Olgruff promissed
Rolled 11 (1d20)>>37752631Well hey, we don't need to tame it.Also, remember how those lizard guys were talking about the wendigo?You know what would make them shit their collective lizard hides?The Wendigo's head as a trophy with our whole Ogre army behind it.Let's see those fuckers attack us again.>>37752713Let's use it to intimidate the Lizard guys first, then eat it, unless it would kill since strange energy.
>>37752733We can intimidate the Lizard Guys by putting it's skeleton/head up visibly as a sign of Danger. We need to eat it, to gain it's power!
Rolled 12 (1d20)>>37752625Bring Togg to the elven healers.Ask about that monster while you are at it.Bring the a herd of 20 sheep to the elves as compensation.
Alright, lemme know once you reach a consensus on the action. Until then...ideastudy/investigate?
Rolled 12 (1d12)>>37752874Study the Wendigo
Rolled 91 (1d100)>>37752874Idea: Ogres who make a grand achievement for the tribe get to become gods after they die.(motivate those big bastards to do their jobs better)
>>37752874Well, than I would say we should do this as an Action:>Skin the Wendigo, Declaw it. basically make use of every part of it. >Cut it's head off. >Put the Head on a Pole>cut off the Meat from him>invite the Elves to celebrate with us>make a feat out of the wendigo Meat>Feast, celebrate with the elves>Eat wendigo Meat>Celebrate and DanceThan on the next Action, we're going to take the Wendigo Head on a Pole and show it to the Lizards.
>>37752900The Wendigo was gaunt to the point of emaciation, its desiccated skin pulls tautly over its bones. With its bones pushing out against its skin, its complexion the ash gray of death, and its eyes pushed back deep into their sockets, the Wendigo looked like a gaunt skeleton recently disinterred from the grave. What lips it had were tattered and bloody. It is unclean and suffering from suppurations of the flesh, the Wendigo gave off a strange and eerie odor of decay and decomposition, of death and corruption. It's physical appearance is best described as looking as if an elk suffered from some form of lycanthropy, being humanoid in form, viciously toothed and clawed, but looking somewhat awkward in it's physiology. The tribes mages, though not experts, say that there is some sort of undeath at work, and there was a powerful curse at place in it's flesh, and that a study of the now dead brain, reveals that it had in fact housed a kind of malevolent spirit within its form. Kim, upon seeing the creature again, remarks on how the strange horned creatures she had seen in the village to the south had looked just like this, but less.... dead.A study of its horrific maw had revealed remnants of flesh incredibly similar to its own, but the mages say that this flesh, although still under the effect of a powerful curse, was not undead, it was in fact, very much alive when this beast had consumed it. They surmise that the beast was cannibalistic.
>>37753173That sounds like we really shouldn't eat it, or we just need a really good cook.
>>37753006As Togg in his current state is unable to lead the village, Grunn, having earned reverence from the people, decided to play off their own reverence of him, to encourage the rest of the tribe to great feats. He spoke to them about how he 'felt the divinity claim him' at the moment when he killed the nightmare, and that he was filled with new purpose. He knew death, and he was death, and he knows that all die in the end, but he spoke to the tribe, and told stories, of how those who prove themselves in this life, shall too, claim divinity.The tribe eat up his words, and soon, the concept becomes a core part of the mythology of the Wartwerk tribe, inspiring ogres to great feats for a shot at godhood.
>>37753173Well, it seems we can't eat it. Let's get rid of the body, and bury it far away.Now, we get our best war faces and war paints, take the head to the lizard boys!
>>37753363What if, instead of burying it, we build a catapult, and shoot it's body into the Lizard Camp?
>>37753394Or if it takes to long to build a catapult:Make use of it's body of as much as is usable, and then take an Army, march to the Lizard Caves, and throw the body in front of their cave as a warning.
>>37753457Yeah, we throw it in front, then we do an intimidating victory dance.
>>37749348> silhouetted against the ever-still starsWhat do you mean by ever-still? Is there something odd about the stars, or is that just your phrasing there?
>>37753494Invite the elves to help or so?>we're basically doing a weird version of burning poop on the house porch
>>37753593Nah, just us, I didn't see any Elves jam an axe into it.
>>37753666I was thinking more of backup...
>>37753569Nicely spotted. The stars are always in the exact same position every night, and they're always there. There's no moon, either, at least, not that you've seen.So guys, gonna need a consensus and a roll, what're you doing actionwise?
>>37753876Well we wanna show em we mean business with the Wendigo body.>>37753862Also, this just in case.
>>37753965We already dissected him
>>37754016Ok, then I used the wrong word. How is it called when you deskin, declaw and do everything to get as much useful stuff out of a body as possible?
>>37754088Go full Native American
Rolled 17 (1d20)>>37754088Uh i don't think that it's wise to keep stuff from an undead/lychantrope around. It's best if we just use the skull as a war standard and burn the rest after having the elves look at it.Also someone has to see i Togg wasn't infected or something. We can't afford an epidemy.
>>37754176Yup. lets not eat necromantic flesh crap. burn it and keep the fuckers head as our trophy of conquest.
>>37754211But isn't butchering just for the meat? I'm pretty sure there is more stuff you can get from it. Maybe you can even build Chemical Weapons out of it's Meat or so...
>>37754268>chemical weaponsYou assume the ogres wouldn't contaminate themselves with it somehow. we're getting smarter but I don't think they're smart enough to handle toxic substances yet.
Rolled 6 (1d20)Hey guys, let's just get rid of the whole damn thing, it could be damning to keep it around. That being said, rolling for our healers to try and help Togg out.
>>37754268its the best word i can think of. Butchers chop meat, but you can butcher things to get all of the stuff out of them. In fact, thats what butchers do before they butcher the meat
Anyways, can we all agree on intimidating the lizards with the Wendigo head?Also, burning the body and burying the ashes far away, and deep.
Rolled 10 (1d20)>>37754321Man, you're too scared. >>37754392>Anyways, can we all agree on intimidating the lizards with the Wendigo head?Yes. >burningbecause unholy cursed lycantropic Air is good for the lungs.
>>37754496You just want a biodisaster from undead flesh.I say freaking no on that. burn it away from the village then but fucking burn it. I'm okay with the head though we earned that thing.
>>37754528I want to eat the corpse to inherit it's powers!
>>37754392I'm not sure trying to intimidate them would be good just yet, not until we know what was going on. We know they mentioned wendigo, but that's all we know, how do we know how they'll react to this? Also, what about what kim said about the wendigo, she saw more like it to the south but not 'dead'? Does that mean not killed dead like the one we killed, or not undead? If we look into that we could find out more about this potentially before we do something like trying to intimidate the lizards, it might be helpful.
>>37754667Kim says that the ones she saw looked alive, and the one that attacked was different in that it was specifically undead looking.
>>37754667Ok, a better plan: We scare the LIzards to death and enslave them, and let them fight against each other like Pokemon!
>>37754731That might actually be worth looking into. the post killing exam indicated it was a cannibal. It was likely feeding on the other wendigos that were alive. Hell given how things went at the old cave we might find the lost ogres there or at least learn of their fate for sure.I'm totally down for ogre search party.
>>37754734We make ball shaped hollow rocks that split open when thrown.
>>37754731So if I got it right, the creatures the elves killed in the forest where alive wendigos?
>>37755036No, she went past a village of living wendigos, but saw some kind of frog-like people being killed on an island in a lake just beyond their village. On the way back to her tribe, Kim didn't see any wendigo in the village, though that doesn't necessarily mean there was none there, she just did not see any.
>>37755133That'd be bullywugs who were getting genocided then. Wonder what they did to piss off the elves you'd think knife ears and beastfolk would get along great.
>>37755133So um thinking about it, maybe we should bring the corpse to the wendigos?
Well guys, need to make a decision soon, as I need to conk out for the night after this. Need to be up in 5 hours. Will write up this last action for you before I go.
>>37755474Well, we gonna burn the body far from us, then bury ashes?That seems like a good source of action.Keep the head as a trophy though.
>>37755527Also Heal Togg.
Rolled 20 (1d20)>>37755554That should be or main action.Rollin
>>37755527I dunno. I think we should hold off on doing anything with the body until we've checked out the village in the south, it might be best to end up doing >>37755251, but I don't think it's a good idea to do anything without at least checking it out. We could learn something important.
>>37755581nice! That should be enough to heal Togg.
>>37755581You know what, you're doing that, I'm not letting you guys waste a good roll. Healing Togg it is. Anything else, we can sort out in the next thread (which I'll be running tomorrow afternoon after work, probably around half 7pm uk time. >writing
>>37755600Okay, but where should we keep the body in that time? What if it rots rapidly?
>>37755600Well, then next Turn should be.>Investigate Wendigo Village and try to talk to them if possibleDepending on it, Bring Wendigo Corpse to them or Burn the corpse>Idea needed: Simple Machinery and Mechanics?
>>37755636Okay, so afternoon for me. That works.
>>37755636Hey I want togg healthy.>>37755671I'm okay with this if only to see if they know of those ogres that vanished into thin air.
So, time to do another interpretation dances. Yay!
>>37755671I agree with both, let's go.
Rolled 4 (1d20)Your healers spend a long time looking after Togg. After half a week, he comes out. He's okay.The healers reveal that during their time looking after him, they realised a few things.1. These nightmares he was suffering was most certainly induced via magic.2. As time went on, his mind began to deteriorate, if it wasn't for the healers there to bolster his mental functions with magic, he would have suffered a terrible fate because...3. They realised that a terrible spirit was lurking nearby, watching him, like a vulture. They realised, that it was waiting for something, some kind of specific conditions to be met. Togg's mental state deteriorating would have left him vulnerable, and he could possibly have been 'inhabited' by the spirit, had he gone too far in. Luckily, after a few days of this, the spirit seems to leave, and Togg's mental state began to improve, the phantasms disappearing, and he could sleep soundly again.4. The thing that worried your healers, was that every time his mind began to lapse, he tried to bite them, he had obtained a thirst for ogre flesh.5. A magic analysis of him, revealed that a curse was lingering, trying to take hold of him.
>>37755841Oh God, a Ogre Chief as a Wendigo, that'd be fucking scary.We should try to come up with some kind of warding dance as a ritual.
>>37755841Everything seemed good, until dusk. A scream came from the village, and when Togg came to investigate, he found one of the ogres dead on the ground. It's chest was ripped open, and there were bite marks covering it, made by ogre teeth. The healers were called.Later, it is discovered that Kim is missing. ~Somewhere, deep in the forest, driven mad by the spirit forcing its way inside her, Kim runs, and runs and runs. Her feet burn with pain, but the spirit forces her to run, and run, and run, faster than an ogre is capable of. Her feet burn into bloody stumps, and with a scream, she begins to run up at an angle, into the night sky, her body twisting into that of a Wendigo.>See you guys next thread.
>>37755963well, I think Kim was useless anyway...But I have archived this thread.
>>37755963Damn, fuckin Wendigos.Poor Kim.
>>37756025I'd call you an ass but yeah Kim was pretty meh.What kind of heartless bastard parent names their ogre child Kim?
>>37756144I'm more worried about the fact that these things are infecting people, and now there's another one out there. Hell, we nearly had two of them out there.
>>37756045>I don't usually delve into the horrific stuff that often, but damnit if I don't absolutely love going full dark with some things. Hope I never get sadistic enough to throw a Wayward Soul your way.>Or that the civ lasts long enough that we go through 1000 years of human history so that you guys can witness what happens when wizards accidentally see a 4 dimensional creature in 4 dimensional space when they glimpse it through the eternity gate>Or when said 4 dimensional creature is forced into this dimension>Or demons in general>And a hundred years into human stuff, don't visit any towers.>In fact, you just really shouldn't trust me. Just be careful, I'll try not to be too sadistic.
>>37756509Honestly, I love the way you DM and I'm really enjoying this game for the last X Days and kinda excited to see more. Personally, I also have no problem with *FUN* as long as it's awesome. An Awesome Game Over is as good, if not better than any Victory...
>>37756860It's pretty fun.It seems like some of the silly gloves are coming off and things are getting serious.
>>37757007tbh, I like the silly things. But the problem is, it sometimes feels like it's hindering, if f.e. there is a fire again, you can't do mythology/cultural stuff. (I still want to create the Ogre-Elven cultural Empire as my main goal)
