Rolled 30 (1d100)The Fall was a long time coming, and when it happened only a few were caught totally unaware. Its ferocity, however, could not have been predicted. Civilizations that had stood for ages were wiped from the face of the earth in a matter of days, and the ground itself suffered wounds from the great powers unleashed upon it. But no one around now knows exactly how or why it happened, and the few that could tell the tale prefer not to. The Old World is gone, though its traces remain. The New World is a shattered husk of its old self where mutants, bandits, and monsters teem in the ruins of cities. There are also those who seek to rebuild. Remnants of the Old World who sheltered the storm in underground bunkers, or descendants of average people who somehow avoided the horrors of the apocalypse. Which will you be?Faction Choices Incoming. Extensive HQ information will be provided after a faction is selected. First to 5 wins.

>>39349998>>39349896>>39349788These are all excellent ideas which have worked before, in fact you can lock onto a general idea right now and it becomes easier to specialize and diverge later via evolution
>>39349896the mutation should be gross in generalmaybe hyper musculature to the point of sin ripping and the risk of tendons just outright snapping and leading to further mutation combined with re-generationi.e. your leg is cut open and your calf muscles shatter your bones causing the regeneration to completely warp your leg into some horrid strange shape since although you have incredibly fast re-generation it causes futer mutation the more it goes on.maybe have it that the more injuries you sustain and the more you push yourself the further you mutate into whatever strange form, weather a massive hulk or some multi armed ooze covered beast.the leadership cold be almost perfect humans (but better) because they avoid almost all injury or strain outside of controlled or emergency situations.
Rolled 49 (1d100)>>39350016From what I know of White Walkers, they would be more of a Tribal/Mutant hybrid with some sort of Ice Empowerment mutation which would enhance their strength the colder their surroundings are.I discourage direct ripoffs, but things that've been 'inspired by' are fine provided you have some fluff behind them.

We really should remember.Monsters: Very HighFluffed civs often get bonuses, if we pick someone it has to be someone who is really good at living in a place infested with building sized monstrosities.
>>39350180I should clarify this is due to a "superhuman" virus similar to FEV except it actually "worked"those who can be infected; not everyone, are superior to regular humans in all aspects, with latent psychic ability.but again as these infected push themselves in one direction or another the mutation begins to take control and twist their flesh to fit the needs of the viruslike psychic adepts become masses of immobile flesh basically existing as powerful psychic nodes, warrior adepts become hulking increasingly meatheaded brutesthe un-specialized, those who become horribly injured, or otherwise ignorant end up becoming horrible monsters barely even recognizable as human and often with little sentience left.
Rolled 7 (1d100)>>39350336That is actually already what Mutants in general are. Superior to normal humans in toughness, strength, endurance, speed, etc. Their bodies are also rather unstable and prone to rampant mutation unless carefully managed.The only thing you've suggested there that wouldn't be covered under the basic mutation is psionic ability.They pay for this heavily in their population growth rates, and technological aptitude.
>>39350314That's only true for Genie civs though.

>>39350405its similar yes, the only thing is it leads to a sort of caste system of mutants and the ability to organize a society based upon sphere of mutationthik like the basic Indian caste systemperhaps the full "Perfects" are similar to the priest class, or alternatively the Psychic adepts represent the priest class while the 'Perfects' represent the nobility/ruler caste.below those two are the warrior castes, often single minded but usually still quite intelligent though its almost always limited to very practical wisdom rather than higher thinking (military tactical thought basically)then you have merchants/diplomats/rangers/spies really anything that would require them to seek other societies and contact other groups, or take part in interpersonal activities in general. they look the most like normal humans with minor mutations but no real overt ones.below that are mere commoners, still functional but otherwise fairly disgusting mutant peasants, not particularly useful but still sane and sentientlast are "outsiders" or untouchable mutants who are little more than monsters and beast-men
>>39350576Shadow of the colossus baby! One real motherfucker climbs that bitch and shanks it's eye with a torn up stop sign!
>>39350576Nah, it's not necessarily true. I'm just going by Genie civ. Where building sized tends to be the norm. . .and small comparitively.Also that was a wasteland where unmodified humans explicitly cannot survive without the most advanced gear.

No time to read thread, limited time when not working. Only enuf time for genie. Sorry
Here's my idea for the civ.We're a group of survivors (or tribals) living in a vast urban ruins, with tall broken skyscrapers reaching to the heavens.The monsters lurk below in the streets and cities, to counter this we have all of us moved upwards to the towers. Farming in it, building makeshift bridges of rope and wood between them, hoping directly over their heads, and from high above we snipe the monsters that try to make their way up, or any other nasities.Best part is the view, a post apocalyptia sunrise.

>>39351181In addition to an HQ choice please choose a Homeground and Terrain.Choose HomegroundExamples for Homeground below. All actions undertaken within your homeground will have bonuses given to them. Urban: Start in the middle of a city, no reliable food sources around. Increased bandits, factions, zombies, resources.Rural: Start in undeveloped country with a small farm already set up, decreased zombies, bandits, monsters, salvage.Desert: Start with no immediately detectable sources of water or food nearby. Deserts were popular places for scientific and military bases though, and you'll certainly have plenty of space to build.Forest: Start with nearby wild food sources and plentiful sources of lumber. Substantially increased monsters, mildly increased salvage.Island: Start in relative safety, fish are plentiful but toxic without effort, few nearby locations. Substantially decreased zombies, bandits, decreased monsters.Military Base: Start inside a large military complex, the bunker you have taken over includes a small nuclear generator, armory, stockpile of ammunition/survival supplies, and some intel on the base and terrain at large. The base is an attractive target for raiding though. Greatly increased bandits and salvage.Science Lab: Start with extensive hidden underground complex, scientific supplies and equipment to speed research, and experimental power generators, but dangerous things lurking in some deeper labs. Increased scientific monstrosities.Vault: Start inside part of a large, self sufficient underground complex. Your node is self-sufficient but poorly fortified, and you don't have much room to expand. Furthermore the Vault is not entirely inhabited, and the things that live underground have started to creep in... Increased factions, monsters, decreased bandits.

>>39352454But why would we want to leave our derelict dome where our township is located?
>>39352454We've got a fortified township and that starts with a farm right? What about some old megacorp executive residential tower with a giant arboretum/greenhouse making up the uppermost floors.
>>39352625Because the monsters are so numerous that when they attack us they will be able to use the piles of their dead to climb our walls.>>39352637This.

>>39352837Name: The Sky Scrapers
>>39352808No need to even booby trap behind us. If we seal off all but 1 or so stairwells in the central tower, we should be able to effectively bottleneck the monsters and as long as we have ammo, we'll be able to hold them off.If they take that stairwell so be it, it only goes up to the 2nd floor, the rest it blocked off. Then we would fight them on a 2nd floor and have another stairwell go up to the 3rd only, etc. until we get down to our last stairwell which would go the remaining stories. That would give us like 8 or 10 floors to go through, until the building is compromised.
>>39352909Don't forget things like elevator shafts and the building exterior, not everything is necessarily going to need stairs to climb. We'll still want to put lots of spikes or other nasty stuff on any climbable surface.
>>39352909You forgot to factor in the exterior defenses. Monsters that could climb the building, flying monsters, jumping monsters using the surrounding environments.
>>39352837Name: The Remnant Tower>>39352967>>39352983Right, we'll want to fortify the outsides so they can't climb it, fly in, etc. and probably completely seal off elevator shafts.
Rolled 77 (1d100)>>39352837This land is your land, by birthright. Your fathers lived their lives out in this megacity, and theirs before them, and so on all the way back to the Fall. Or so you've always been told.But your city has changed over the years. The Old Men of your town talk about how in their day the trees were naught but a minor thing. Isolated to a few old parks and the ragged edges of your concrete jungle. They even say that the trees of their day didn't reach halfway up the trio of skyscrapers you call home, let alone how they tower above you now. But those were the old days, back when the deals with the caravans and the scavengers had been first negotiated, and the city still had some normal people in it just trying to scrape by. Back then your town had been a hub for damn near everything and your wealth was sufficient to fight off the constant monsters and zombies, and occasional bandit attacks with ease.
>>39353025>>39352983Alternatively invest in more offensive capabilities like wall climbing vehicles and fliers.Later on of course
Rolled 45 (1d100)>>39353042But slowly the Forest crept in, and with it came the monsters. By the Gods above, so many monsters. They'd always been plentiful, breeding in the sewers and festering in the abandoned arcologies, but when the Forest began to claim more and more land they became unbearable. Endless streams of teeth, claws, hides as strong as iron, and strength that could tear a man in twain or scale entire floors of a tower in the blink of an eye. It happened suddenly and without explanation. Most of the normal factions either up and left or were wiped out within one or two summers. Damned bandits stuck around though, and the zombies only seemed to grow stronger from the increase in food. This land is your land though, by birthright. Your fathers adapted to what your grandfathers never could have. The town was moved to the upper floors of a trio of towers, and the lower floors were fortified extensively. External walls were greased and festooned with spikes and barbed wire, internal stairwells and elevator shafts were collapsed or turned into murderholes, and fortifications cropped up to combat the monstrous threat. You even managed to negotiate the materials to make an utterly badass Aquaponics system out of one particularly desperate passing caravan. Bridges and improvised roadways were established between the city's buildings and the ever-growing trees, and even a few secret routes were built out of the old subway systems.Your fathers survived what many did not, for that is just what you do.

>>39353461Well shit. critical fail random event here we come.
>>39353461Do those rolls at the start of each post always mean something, or are they just a smokescreen for when you're actually rolling for something?

Rolled 86 (1d100)>>39353461>Investigate the nearest plume of smoke>Improve fortificationsScouts are dispatched towards the nearest plume of smoke, and should return within the next 2 turns provided they can make it through the monsters.Meanwhile our forces at home set themselves to further improving our base's already considerable defenses. Machine Gun pillbox networks were looked at, reassessed, and found lacking. Watchtowers were turned into properly stocked sniper nests with alarm systems, and all of our walls and central supports were refurbished and reinforced. One member named Riley even managed to convince a group to begin working on ground-level walls to seal off the triangle our towers form from the outside...and some progress was made there.Turn 2>>>>>A.

Rolled 89 (1d100)>>39355567Your snipers take aim on the squad advancing towards your fortifications, even as alarms are called and the entire town is sent on high alert."Fuck! Those are our guys! Save'm, shit!""Fuck, you're right! Redirect fire!">Workers (mostly) withdrawn inside fortifications>Defensive forces attempting to thin monsters pursuing scout squad"Wait, are they...yelling something at us?"And that was when the world exploded.

Rolled 22 (1d100)>>39355713The hissing sound reached a crescendo, ceased for a moment, and then a roar like thunder rolled across the cityscape. The ground behind the fleeing scouts rapidly started to pulse, and then crack, letting out great billows of white smoke. Soon the cracks caught up to the monsters, and as the gusts of white hit them you saw their flesh boil off. Their pursuit quickly changed into flight itself, and several of the monsters ducked off into side alleys or leaped up onto high floors of the surrounding buildings. Several more were not so lucky and were engulfed in the superheated steam, tinging it a slight pink.Your scouts were lost amid the billows, but without them to focus on your lookouts began to notice other things."Wait, are those cracks heading towards...FUCK!!">Evacuation ordered, North East Tower

>>39356482I'm sure mutants or anything else that could hold a gun would like guns too.Whatever it is I think its coming from underground, and it may be a diversion to kill our troops before a true "base attack"
Rolled 84 (1d100)>>39356530>>Other?storm into the NE tower and kill these bastards, no survivors.
>>39356530>Withdraw and bolster defense.
Rolled 38 (1d100)>>39356530The tower is clearly being looted Set the lower levels on fire and let it spread upwards we've already lost the goods and people within let's practice scorched earth tactics if they want those guns so badly they can cook with them
Rolled 27 (1d100)>>39356555Bandits could leave faster than the fire would get to them.Especially if they can survive superheated steam.
Rolled 99 (1d100)>>39356555Fuck yeah, this right here. Lock down and burn down the lost tower!
>>39356576Steam and fire are very different beasts, and if nothing else it will destroy any loot they might be carrying. Plus unless they can fly setting the ground floor on fire will cut off retreat
Rolled 55 (1d100)>>39356548>>39356555>>39356577>Assault the NE tower, from the ground upWriting.
>>39356601Or, you know, underground tunnels. Which are fairly common if not standard to all post apoc settings
Rolled 19 (1d100)>>39356603Hmm, well...That's gonna...uhh...
>>39356630They are in our tower, if the base of the tower is on fire how do they reach their tunnels?
Rolled 38 (1d100)>>39356685Damn, dice. Alright alright fine.
>>39356685Who the fuck are you rolling for? If its for us then the fuck are we rolling for?
Rolled 8 (1d100)>>39356704You're kidding me, how the fuck am I supposed to explain that?
>>39356717Remember to include modifiers. Which hate everything.also here is a pic you requested.
Someone is really going to have to explain to me why the qm is rolling and for who,what, and how it affects us. Go slow please.
>>39356757Have you never been in a genie civ thread before? The rolls are for multiple things. For random events, situation rolls, enemy rolls etc.
>>39356794First one mate.
Rolled 69 (1d100)>>39356603>Ground Forces ordered to assault the NE tower"Advancing into the NE tower, booby traps down here have been sprung, looks like we've got...Bandits. Not normal bandits though, these guys've got some serious shit. Advancing further up, with extreme prejudice."---->Contact lost with NE tower forces"Fucking bandits, I thought all those motherfuckers left when all our friends ditched on us.

All I know is that they're here now and I'm gonna fucking make them pay for what they've done here. Now grab his gun and let's get this shit done."---You hear the roar of flamers from across the gulf between your towers. Men shout and the crack of small arms fire increases until all you can hear is the thunderous blasts of shotguns, then it dies down.>Contact regained with NE Tower forces.

Rolled 45 (1d100)>>39356905You have a biofuel generator that will replenish your fuel stock over time, but you can still scavenge for fuel if you like. It doubles as both a producer of biofuel and an emergency electricity generator if your primary power source ever goes out.

Rolled 65 (1d100)>>39357037>>39357044Quick question do we eat our dead or did food never become scarce enough to develop that particular cultural practice?
Rolled 56 (1d100)>>39357070Nah, you have to roll to see how well it goes.>>39357072Your Civ has not fallen upon times that hard in recent memory, but you are Survivors so you are quite well versed in exactly how to avoid having to do things like that.The same might not be true of other factions.
Rolled 60 (1d100)>>39357044>>39357087Rollan then.
Rolled 41 (1d100)>>39357012Your men and women set themselves to the task of rebuilding the shattered remains of the Northeast Tower...only to discover that there was extremely little actual damage done to it. It seems that these bandits were as good as their equipment would suggest, and both the steam and their weapons were geared towards killing while leaving as much loot intact as possible.>Damage to NE Tower is MinorHowever the street around the NE Tower was another matter entirely. It was entirely caved in, leaving a deep scar running halfway around the perimeter of your base, exposing the underground. It's not clear exactly what happened but there are extensive burst pipes at the bottom of the trough, so it would seem that the bandits used the city's utilities network to cause some sort of overload.Which is odd because you seem to remember someone telling you that there aren't supposed to be automatic safety shutoffs for that sort of thing.>NE Tower RepairedMeanwhile your more tech-oriented members dug in to the loot the Bandits had dragged in with them, as well as the gear they themselves had been wearing."Jesus fuck, do we even have anything that can cut these fuckers open?""Cut them open? Why would you want to do that? Look, this reminds me of something my Old Pa showed me once, let me just try this real quick."*Pop-hisss*>20 Suits Bandit Pyro Power Armor AcquiredMeanwhile the odd sacks that the bandits had been carrying with them were rummaged through.

Rolled 8 (1d100)>>39357271Aaand, I'm going to call it a night here, folks. Next thread should be up tomorrow between 6pm and 8pm US Eastern time.Thank you all for playing, and you'll have an important surprise at the beginning of the next thread to look forward to.
>>39357285you got a twitter?
>>39357295Not as of yet, but if this stays relatively popular then I might pick one up.
Bump, gotta archive this somehow
bunp>>39359091Doesn't moe grab it all?
Rolled 49 (1d100)Oh, this is still up? Well shit. Feel free to vote on actions if you like.
>>39363360oh wow, I dunno if you wanna do it like Genie where stuff can happen daily or if you had game days.Hmm
Rolled 72 (1d100)>>39357271Basic 1>Find 20 able bodied men, preferably our best fighters, to train in the usage of the recently aquired Basic 2Scout out the surrounding regions, and get a basic map of what is around. This forest changes every so generation, so we have to know what is around these parts.I like maps they help considerably, so that'd be nice if we could get one
Rolled 35 (1d100)>>39363360>F. Scavenge for raw materials.This would replenish our resources right? Or at least start to?>E. Explore in a direction/something.Explore the underground around the NE tower, so we can know what's down there. Maybe even find choke points to fortify/seal off.
Rolled 99 (1d100)>>39363645Yes, if you don't specify a specific sort of thing you're looking for (Ex: Gunsmithing equipment, Ammunition, Manufacturing Equipment, Research Materials, construction equipment, vehicle wrecks, etc.) then you will default to collecting Resources.Resources are an abstraction of various useful materials that are generalized enough to be used for basically anything. This is contrasted with materials, which are specific things you have access to. Materials are more efficient and have better end results to compensate for being MUCH more limited in what they can do.Most actions that aren't scavenging or military will require resources or materials, but you'll be warned if an action will go to waste due to lacking the required stuff.
Rolled 98 (1d100)>>39363808On another note, Loots are like a hybrid of resources and materials and supplies. Best of all worlds, but they're very difficult to get.Loots are also (essentially) the currency of the Post Apoc.>News-Our techies tell us that it might not be the best idea to use the bandits' MAD tech. It seems to be...temperamental at best. Notably, one tech suffered extreme burns to half his body when he attempted to use a Spewer Pistol. The gun remains intact. Your members are wary of the other equipment.-You have received a long-range transmission from what seems to be a large caravan who are approximately 8 turns out. They are offering you hefty discounts if you dispatch a force of [150 Military] to serve as guides and escorts to your base. If you accept this offer the caravan will arrive in 5 turns, returning your dispatched forces with it.
Rolled 45 (1d100)>>39363951I vote to dispatch the 150 military as long as the loss of almost half our military doesn't compromise the security of our compound. Exchanging protection for goods is a win win in my opinion.
Rolled 76 (1d100)>>39364082It will greatly reduce your level of defensive preparedness, but you'll still have enough to man your basic defenses and you'll still have your booby traps.So your level of defense won't be reduced all that much, but you won't have anything in reserve.
>>39364120Damn, I need to take a nap.Just to be clear:-You will not be /much/ less defended than you are now.-However you won't have any reserve forces to react in case any of your lines falter.
>>39364146I think that's fine, but I highly recommend that we now train all civilians in combat, so we can have a standing militia of EVERYONE in reserve. After all, if we lose any fight at all, we're fucked anyway.
Rolled 45 (1d100)>>39364209You lack the proper facilities and expertise to train your civilians like that. You could acquire them, but you'd need to find someone who knows what they're doing first. Your military will slowly come back over time, or you can burn some actions on training up new military personnel.Which is not to say that your civilians are helpless, it's just that they don't wear armor all the time and usually only have a sidearm on them when in the base.
>>39364120>>39364146Ok just double checking. I think it's an acceptable risk.>>39364209I'm not sure what the current status is, but I'd imagine we'd have some mandatory military service for all able bodied men and women over the age of 18 for a set period of time.
Rolled 56 (1d100)>>39364449We could improve upon that and implement it. It will do especially well if we can use caravan connections to hire military trainersI will also support the transferall of 150 men.As for actionsBasic 1Search for barricade construction [materials]. We should start refortifying our homeland proper, as previously we had scouts come under attack by monsters not too far from the base. Had it not been for the steam pipe that would hvae been nasty.>E. Explore in a direction/something.Explore the underground around the NE tower, so we can know what's down there. Maybe even find choke points to fortify/seal off.
Rolled 5 (1d100)>>39364449Your civ is all acquainted with weaponry and fighting, but you're far from professionals. You're pretty good at dealing with monsters under most circumstances, but bandits will likely have their way with you if they ever get in a straight fight with you outside your township.
