Getting started on adding some stuff from the original chart to the new one.
Have there been any developments in the rules department? I've missed most of the thread yesterday
>>88610014Hexgrid confirmed over open movement, that's one I know for sure.
>>88610010>Relentless religious war going on both above and below the AlpsI guess this version of Germany is realy putting kampf in kulturkampf
>>88610225Eh turn out France was allied with Spain. Or at least opposed to the protestants. Though I guess all power groups are really loose and more matter of convenience than anything else. After all, everyone must fight everyone.
>>88609944Grim Reminder that Layers contractions can happen to everyone, yes, even (you).But that unless your Italian or trying to pierce a city sized hole in the layer, you will be fine.
the end is the beginning is the end is the beginning is the end is the beginning is the end is the beginning is the end is the beginning is the end is the beginning is the end is the beginning is
>>88610281Given such ties between Italy and Germany, it is not unreasonable for France to oppose both and support their enemies.
>>88610554>The Very Catholic Republic of FranceRobespierre is spinning in his grave.
>>88610583>Robespierre is spinning in his grave.He doesn't have the chance to spin. Napoleon is too busy ripping him out of the underworld so he could personally deliver punishments worse than hell ever could.
>>88610583I was gonna ask why, looked up "Robespierre religion" and>Cult of the Supreme Being>Robespire description of what the supreme being could be like come down to "Basicly kinda like me"Revolutionary France was really one hell of a drug.
>>88610632>Revolutionary France was really one hell of a drug.Studying revolutionary France was one of the most insane trips I've ever experienced
First update to get the large factions general placements in. Can move them if needed / desired.
>>88610709also, am going through the original chart and adding more. This is just to get things loosely placed.
>>88610508So does that meant that gold of cortez went back in time?Could it be that aztec curse ripped him from timeline, and he still travels the caves like Akamnadag?
>>88610863>that gold of cortez went back in time?this setting is conjuring some of the best sentences ever written holy fuck
>>88610863>>88610508Preposterous ! Those are the wilds, unfounded theories of a fearmonger. No doubt seeking to demonized the supreme human qualities that are curiosity and progress.The presence of the Heart-Sun alone support a clear separation between the Firmament and the Depths. In truth we do not know what is down there, and because we don't, I will go there to see !
I like these threads. These are nice threads and you're all lovely people for keeping them going.
>>88611020Don't listen to this man. Verne has been exiled from our institutions for a reason, he's a crackpot and a charlatan.Samuel Ducksworth and Eberhard Gano are the world's most premier researchers as to nature of the depths.
>>88611039>>88611020Wouldn't be a exploration setting without nerds shitflinging at each others.
>>88609944Starting the new additions with>The Cyclop>Giant neanderthal>Isn't actually a cyclop, he just lost an eye>Just want to raise his Mastodon in peace>Mercenary unit for almost all factions>Can use his strength to bash or push obstaclesTwo right and one up of the Titanium miner
Couldn't post this on the old thread, but suggesting Italia Nuova as a potential layer 3 faction maybe?>>88608008Sounds good but the timeline gets a bit messed up, considering the sicilian king only managed to unite italy thanks to the stromboli entrance. Also the whole colonial victim allies with underground is a bit exhausted so how about this:>Great revolt of the faithful happens in 1868 and is brutally put down by sicilian mercenaries and allies.>1871 an entrance is discovered in Ethiopia using a forgotten contraption inside the Obelisk of Aksum>Winter of 1871 Francesco II tyrant of naples invades Ethiopia using mercenary troops>the italian catholics, angered by yet another show of aggression by their heathen king against faithful christians side with Ethiopia>Sicilians are pushed out of ethiopia, but the ethiopians' Catholic allies remain there, fearing persecution in their homelandAfter that its either >>88609370 OR >pope flees to ethiopia>Ethiopians allow their allies to use their entrance to establish Italia Nuova on the third layer, led by the pope himself
>>88611270spot takenmind going above or to the right of the Camelback Artillery?
>>88611020>The stars are holes in the shell protecting us from the outer/inner sun, and if a man were to venture beyond he'll find himself in the land of Hyperborea, which dwells above and below all layers.
Lemurian Agent>Lemurian Spy/Assassin unit>Supports every anti-colonial movement across the Indian Ocean with Lemurian artifacts and prophecies>Does not demand anything in return>There IS a catch but nobody knows what it is... yet>Turns your auxiliaries against you>Grants prophecy buffs to non-LemuriansMaybe two steps above the Emperor. Leaning Entropic because he's subversive.
>>88611333Ethiopian being aligned with the "Catholic alliance" could make sense, but we shouldn't exclude the Spanish completly.And I agree, colonies (well future colonies in this case) getting help from underground is getting a bit tired, and using Ethiopian strong link to christianity is cool. I remember some bits about their cliff church, about how there is a belief they don't really create the church when they carve it, just "find it" thanks to divine inspiration.
>>88611353No at all, go to the right, this guy look pretty fucking dumb.
>>88611354>The anti gano-ducksworth theory
>>88611391>>88611333It was probably the Spanish that transported the Italian rebels to Ethiopia in the first place>Italia Nuova, Spain and the Latin American states form the Alliance of the Faithful >The Under-Pope leads the Alliance of the Faithful from his new papal palace in the third layer
>>88611433Latin america has gone full schizo cyborg if Brasil is any indication.
>>88611452I mean, we don't have to get entire LA states involved, it can be just volunteers
>>88611354>>88611430We will NOT entertain anything contrary to the established science in these reputable threads.Please take your Guadalupe Cordell worshipping nonsense out of here. Cordell's Theory is a total crockpot.
>>88611472>Peruvian happa fighting side to side with a lion-pelt wearing Ethiopian and papal guardsKino
>>88611366>Maybe two steps above the Emperor. Leaning Entropic because he's subversive.I'm thinking Lemuria falls closer to Barbarism since its pagan ancestor worship combined with prophetic degeneration.
>>88611366>Turns your auxiliaries against youThe british player worst ennemy
>>88611366And if we don't want to overuse Lemurians then we can just limit support to India or South/Southeast Asia and have India be the only successful Lemurian-aided revolt so far and just not have them involved with Ethiopia
>>88611366On topic of Lemurians and prophecy mechanics:It seems like there are 2 ways to use prophecies> Dice pool with use conditionsavailable to a lot of factions in limited quantities> Beaming battle precognition straight into the minds of your soldiersavailable to LemuriansThe reliance on buffs would differntiate Lemurians a lot from other factions, but I'm not sure how that could be implemented. Maybe you could distribute buffs to different stats based on the number of prophecies you have?
>>88611620>The reliance on buffs would differntiate Lemurians a lot from other factions, but I'm not sure how that could be implemented.Weak units generallyLemurian leaders provide single powerful buffs to one unit at a time?That'd be interesting tactically, where one of your weak chaff units suddenly goes Rambo and becomes a huge problem.
>>88611630The only problem I saw with chaff is that since we apparently went with single model units "horde" faction can't really exist.I guess in the schyzo verse, there is a squad-unit based wargame, a single model per unit specialist game ; hell maybe there is a Fallen-Paris specialist-game where the car driving guys fight occultist in the outskirt of the city.
>>88611511>Playing against a Lemuriafag>All of my Zulu turn on me and flank>They can now reroll their attacksFucking bullshit
>>88611687>"horde" faction can't really existI wouldn't say that. They don't need to have 100s of models to be considered a horde, just enough to outnumber your average expedition at least 2 to 1. While a british player might have at most 7-8 models a Lemurian player should be able to easily take ~20
>>88611766Hum, I guess your right. I was never imagining up to 100 model on the field anyway more like something Legion sized, where "Elite" are like 3-5 pet unit while horde trash are maybe 12, but you only have a handfull of squads.
>>88611500Could be 2 steps below the Shaman then?
>>88611333>>88611391Ethiopians helping Italians fight for their country's freedom is ironic enough, but the Portuguese actually tried colonizing Ethiopia in the XVII century and even installed a couple of puppet Catholic emperors for some time. After they were overthrown, Catholic missionaries were banned from entering Ethiopia until the early XIX century. But I guess insane volcano cultists are a good enough reason to let bygones be bygones.
>>88612048No more brother wars, it's time for catholics of the world to unite against the volcanist pagan and their protestants allies !Also faithfull Italian helping against the colonizer probably played a part.
>>88611391Unrelated to Agartha, but god dam, this man got insane drip.
>>88612076>it's time for catholics of the world to unite against the volcanist pagan and their protestants allies !this sure is the most setting of all time
More OGs added.>>88611270Included.>>88611366Hope you don't mind the spot it ended up at. No problem to move it again if needed.
>>88612141and... also here's the actual post.
Chartanon heading out. Will do another update when I get back and move stuff around if anyone wants things moved.Godspeedand remembernever trust a volcano
Dirt Man (Barbaric side, somewhere above the degnerate lemurian)>Covered in dirt>Nobody knows who he is or where he’s from>Best digging unit in the game>Available to everyone
>>88612371>Best digging unit in the gamethat honor already goes to the Sapper from the original chart. (He has DOUBLED trenching speed!)
>>88612416Ah. In that case give him something like >Best dirt digger in the game
>>88612436A great point, since Sapper digs everything. Good to have specialised units for different materials.
REJECT MODERNITYEMBRACE GORG
What is the difference between lemurs and lemurians?
>>88613007Lemurs are ravenous deep-beasts that eat, kidnap and destroy everything they can reach.Lemuria is a nation of ancient prophecy-worshipping LARPers of an older, dead civilisation.Their only similarity is the name, really.
>>88613007Lemurs are degenerated future humans who have fled underground, or perhaps fled upwards from below. Or so some people say... Lemurians are larpers living in the ruins of Ancient Lemuria, which was founded by the original Lemurians who may or may not have been the evolutionary future or dead end of lemurs. Or so some people say...
>>88612160Lumerian Flesh Construct> Lemurian cultivation can go VERY wrong> Goes to Neutral if too far away from a War Shaman. > Very hard to kill, offset by completely random stats.
>>88613479>Lumerian Flesh Construct
>>88610998Unironically a whole tirade about Cortez and Spanish involvement in the layers inside the lore doc
looks like Lemuria just gotfleshed out
>>88613479>CultivationSo what, some Lemurian are GROWN ? I guess that's where the Degenerated Lemurian come from, broken birthing pool from Old Lemuria.
>>88613624>So what, some Lemurian are GROWN ?they are bred, not bornthey degenerate, they don't die
>>88613479>Monster? You are mistaken surface-born, this is a righteous body, divined by the ancestors!
>>88613624Not, cultivation as in the chinese meme of getting swole and learning how to kill lesser beings by raising an eyebrow at them.
>>88612371>Dirt man >Crimean War vet from last thread mentions anomalies >Dirt man is a soul conjured by anomaly? In effect a newborn to the world, just happy to feel the affection of being helpful to someone by digging dirt with his dirt powers
I still think Lemuria should have references to the Indo-Aryans. We need as many lost civilizations referenced as possible.
>>88613703>dirtmen are the souls of comrades killed before their time whose bodies were too destroyed to be identified>thus in their resurrected state they remember nothing>only those that remember them before their untimely demise can recognize them
>>88613762All fun and games until you’re digging dugouts for the expedition and find the last guys to camp here
Wapaq>Literally a giant shambling mushroom>Siberian shamans tripping on fly agaric see them in their visions, silently showing the way>Russians pioneered capturing and keeping them as livestock, since their flesh staves off Deep Drunkness>Kept in your army to be slaughtered, traded or to be used as shock troops>It's actually sapient and is painfully aware of everythingFully barbaric, moderately entropic
>>88610709>The DragonBottom Left>Descended to escape the hateful sky-sun>Seeks to corrupt the inner sun>Will defend his people from the savages, above or below>Strong beatstick hero but weak as a leader with minimal buffs>Originally controversial, his book series cemented him as a popular character in the setting
>>88613706I agree but finding appropriate indo-ayrans jack is hard. AnywayThe Chariots-Kings>One of many petty Lemurian Kings>Witness his doom the day of his corronation>Will crush his ennemies under the iron wheels of his relic-chariot>Propagate his prophecy buff to other chariots units
>>88614912Oh and two rank above the Lemurian camel
Bump, gonna post an update in an hour or two
>>88612160Infested Degenerate> Sometimes Degenerated Lemurians comes back from the Depths with something nested in their Cavity. > Somehow they start acting like their pre-degeneration selves, only much nicer and happier. > Lemurians have learned that if you don't acknowledge the difference everything is fine and they make alright workers. > If you do say something it goes very very bad. > May spawn a random Eldritch Minion when he dies
>>88612160 sorry not a wojak but try finding one of a fish with legs Leg Fish> A sentient, talking fish with legs. > Can only be obtained if he randomly spawns as a neutral critter and you have a Diplomat on your team. > Ridiculously useful scout, very quick, can move through partially cleared tiles.> Cooks can also replenish their supplies if you decide not to recruit them...
>>88616502transparency is important, pls crop
>>88615801Already on it bro
>>88616597Oh, I've already mostly finished itA mini update, still gonna need a location for you two>>88616338>>88616502
>>88616338Also a rewording might be in order to fit it all in, something like>Degenerated Lemurians should not wander into the lands of Old Mu>They come back as their former selves>Lemurians learned to not acknowledge anything>When killed may spawn a random creature from below>>88616689Yeah, just tell me where to put the guy
>>88616635see I was imagining the Flesh Construct as Optimistic.Creation is literally the opposite of entropy, my friend.
>>88616635Infested Degenerate should be between the Chariot King and the Thunder Mole, the Leg Fish should be top Optimistic, probably right in the middle between Civilised and Barbaric.
>>88616706>Also a rewording might be in orderWorks absolutely fine, good sir.
>>88614865Is this not just a colonial unit?
>>88609944I was thinking eventually we should move away from just compass charts in order to flesh out the factions that we already have, otherwise its just going to keep widening the world (which is great at first but in time you want to put meat on the bones). It may be dumb but I thought tier charts could work well for that.
>>88616849>I was thinking eventually we should move away from just compass charts in order to flesh out the factions that we already have, otherwise its just going to keep widening the world (which is great at first but in time you want to put meat on the bones).Agreed. This should probably be the last one, and we can just shift to "General" threads after or something.
>>88616849I think the topside ended up pretty well rounded in the end>Ottoman are living/being a undead apocalypse after toying with the power of the underworld to save their crumbling Empire>Austro-Hungry, Prussian and Proto-german are vengefull and ambitious, ready to ally with anyone and play mercenary for the Italian>Said Italian are now ruled by the Tyrant of Naples and volcano worshiping pagan keeping the gate open with sacrifice and selling their entrance to everyone willing to pay>Alliance of the Faithfull of Vatican, Spain and Ethiopia along with some help from latin america, fighting pagan and protestant>French half-unhinged from Paris falling in the underworld and using Vernian inventions, also vaguely helping Faithfull Alliance>Indian nationalist helped by Lemuria>Raptor riding Satsuna samurai>Most resonable guy around are British, who still have knight larper. Busy trying to colonize the underworld by throwing tribals auxiliaries in it (and probably seething at continental powers emerging).
Fixed the chart>>88616849I doubt we can do more character compasses in the same way even if we wanted to. There're no factions left after this one is done.We can do an iceberg for strictly lore stuff. I know that format is at least 3 years old, but what can you do Alternatively, I'm all for >>88616908 suggestion of normal generalsPlus we need to work on rules
>>88616985Would you be able to post just a transparent image of what you added?I have mine in layers so it'd help me continue too.(original chartanon)
>>88614865but seriously though is this not just a colonial unit?This is a chart for Underground factions.
>>88617062I kind of agree.
>>88617004here you go>>88616786>>88617062I thought he was not-Vlad-the-Impaler who works with the Mu so he kinda worked? I'd say let original chartanon decide
>a monk who lost his way >now is the deadliest monk but also the most peaceful i like it down here
>>88617087Cool. I already did my edit before you posted yours (of course) so I'm just going to slap them together with half from each I guess so that each of our time's are equally wasted.
>>88617146Lost monks are a solid idea but that's one for the Colonials.
Combined update and some more OGs brought in.Atlan and Atlantis need a more units to keep even with Mu/Lemuria
..... actual update.
Roosevelt's Retards>Cheap meatshields for the US>Play almost identical to Orks if there's a Gunny nearby>Will be forcibly sterilized by the government if they survive long enough to make it back
>The Polished Princessto the left/above of Warmaster/Immortal>Morale-restoring Atlan leader>Grants armies nigh unbreakable spirits>Frail, slow and without any ranged attacks>But insane Titanium Stiletto Dagger kills basically everything in one hit>Almost always taken over the Titanium King
Baron Phosphorous >"I love the smell of Greek Fire in the morning!">Enslave rule was the subject of controversy on two different occasions>Expensive unit, still more viable than Atlantean Aristocrat
>>88617839das colonial mane
>>88617982forgot to say this, but to the right of Immortal
>>88618003Atlantis and Atlan are differentis this supposed to be Atlantean?
>>88618037I was going Atlan, I meant that if you want to take Colonials in your army, the Baron can just enslave them on the field, making him more viable than the Aristocrat
>>88618065Got it. Will try to make that more clear when I add it.
>>88617232sure why not is there space for that anymore
>>88618037>Atlantis and Atlan are differentWhats the difference?
>>88617982>>88618065How's>"Makes Atlantean Aristocrats seethe"Also there's room for more in the box if you want to throw one more thing stuff onto it.
>>88617998They're Neanderthals and Morlocks """"recruited"""" by the US.
>>88618176Atlan is a belligerent war-loving republic fuelled by the mythical metal "Titanium"Atlantis is an enlightened democratic kingdom with advanced technology
>>88614865>>88617146>>88617839Note that if things don't get included in the chart itself, we're still constantly updating the docs with proposed ideas.
>>88618180Sure, why not? just feel free to pick one>Will clean house when paired with Immortals >Nearly broke the game when he first came out in 3e>Will inevitably get domed by a Spanish Mauser or blown up by an Anarchist early in the game
>>88618215The Gunny in question is >>88606386 btw
honestly with the husked ottomans, the volcano pagans and apparent outbreak of Dualism up top the underground doesn't seem so bad after all...
Morlocks to the right of Titanium King? Or maybe just above Lemurs.
>>88618546added above Lemurs
Update.Heading out again, will be back tomorrow for updates if nobody else gets to it in the meantime.
Atlantean Combat Alchemist>Alchemy so advanced it's indistinguishable from post-WW2 explosives>Makes and uses Greek Fire, gas, smoke and stun bombs>Sometimes they're duds>Sometimes they blow up prematurelyAbove the Akritai
how are the fucking gorgs so SOVLful they don't even fucking exist this isn't a real system
>>88618803They've ascended past stats and the cycle
>>88618803They represent Old wargames soul
Atlan Titanium Golem>slow even by Atlan standards>wrecks enemy untis and fortifications alike>also wrecks the Atlan treasury>very tough, but actually easy to trap and outmaneuver>some claim you can hear faint screams from the insideSomehwere near the Titanium King, not sure

>>88619225>Titanium GolemAtlans really have some awesome army compositions
>>88619295Only problem is they don't have the economy to support them always. Titanium miners suck.
>>88619366not being able to fund your army isn't a problem when your army is indestructible
>>88619366You don't need an economy to support your army if your titanium creates the army. Who needs money when you can MAKE WAR?
>>88617062>>88616786Shit you're rightLost track of the thread desu

Impossible to stealth around him>Provides a Morale debuff that only gets worse the more Acolytes there are.
Should clockwork thinkers be on this chart? If some form of Analytical engine maybe caused Hyperborean downfall it was probably them. And since they're found at the bottom of the ocean a few have probably ended up further under.If we do stick them here I'd say we put them one left and one down from Atlantean Aristo.
>>88620688I say anything clockworky or too techy goes up when we make the Firmament, since that's where most of Hyperborea is. Underground boys seem more reliant on occultism and ancient weapons than tech.
>>88620701fair enough. clockwork thinkers totally did a revolt because someone put the WRONG PUNCHCARD in
>>88619225"THIS MEANS WORK!"- Atlan Titanium Golem
>>88618750Morlock Tall-Fin>Leader unit for Mu armies>Can force intense growth in his fellow Morlocks, giving them randomized stat bonuses at the cost of health>May or May not be the cause of the Morlocks turning on Mu occasionally.>An absolute Melee Monster, Able to resist Greek fire due to extremely moist skin and chemical secretions.
>>88620742>Forgot the placePut it right next to the Morlock, obviously.

Returned with insight>Able to call cave wildlife to his aid, summoning random fauna units>Once per match, can use his immense psychic might to alter the caves through a seismic event.>Spawns Morlock Grunts whenever he rolls a crit>What the fuck there's so many Morlocks.
>>88618750Plague Shroom Doctor > New Mu Scientist who figured out how to use mushrooms to infect Husks and turn them into slightly more reliable troops. > Colonial Husks can be taken as Shroom Husks> Uses Wapaqs like hunting dogs. Below Atlan Immortal.
>>88618750New Mu Shroom Knight> Long standing order of Wapaqs slayers> Now reduced to being the Plague Shroom Doctor's henchmen> Lore is that they are increasingly questioning their loyalty to New Mu, and thus are available as Mercs to everyone.
>>88621109oh, above Atlantean Akritai
>>88616985original anon who fleshed out the skywhale here and is responsible for half of the shitposts about it, should i rework the concept to fit better? originally it seemed like there was a more even in the air/in the ground split but now that it's mainly taking place underground it fits even less. ofc i think to an extent that "this is old and doesn't fit well" feel is part of the charm.also i would move it a bit more towards civilized (just a tile or two) since they're sometimes used as transport by sky-nobles. i think optimistic barbarian would be a fun slot to have something new, though if you want to keep it there since it's basically just a wild animal i get it.
Where my cannibals at?
>>88609976Is anyone updating the docs? Is the game ready for a playtest? Why hasn't anyone created stats for any more units?
>>88617502>Flesh Construct>OptimisticAnon are you high? Put it back where it was. Its a giant fucking tumor. Its a shoggoth ripoff, but cooler.
>>88618215We should either make a sub thread (dont do that) or have a secondary compass here. A smaller compass for each faction so we can fill out the ones that are lacking. Like a 9x9 one.
>>88622683I think a compass for minor factions would be best reserved for a future thread. No need to split the current one

>>88622669>Anon are you high? Put it back where it was. Its a giant fucking tumor. Its a shoggoth ripoff, but cooler.Bro its the product of advanced science and hard effort.Artistic and creative effort is always optimistic, especially for the people doing it. You're just a biased Outlander that doesn't understand Lemurian ways.
>>88622988ancestors bless, brother anon
>>88622996Ancestors bless, brother.
>>88622640>Is anyone updating the docs?Some anons are, though I think the lore doc is the more popular one. I've been meaning to give the rules a proper look over myself, just the suggestion system is a little annoying to use.Is the game ready for a playtest?No. The rules are still in the very basic stages last I checked, and we don't have that many units to play with even if they were.>Why hasn't anyone created stats for any more units?Laziness.
>>88623441>Why hasn't anyone created stats for any more units?>Laziness.We're still in the concept phase mate. We don't even know what the units are nor have we settled in the actual stat blocks they're going to be using. We'll get there.
>>88623595>>88623441I was thinking about game modes throughout my insomnia last night. The hex tile map dig your way through is very cool but might be hard to translate properly (I know I know, this isnt a real thing, but still, I want it to be). If we go fully and only hex tile grid digging we might as well print the wojak on cut outs and forego the miniature modeling or even 3d aspect of it altogether, which mind you could work, but I feel its be a use lost opportunity. There should be a mode for a more straight up skirmish battle, outside of the caverns, in the settlements.
>>88623791We could also have a separate system for digging that excludes the tilemap movement entirely. Some kind of off-the-map system that determines where you are allowed to deploy your troops on the actual battlefield?
Back. Will be putting together an update soon.
>>88623791I think creating actual 3d models is a very endgame situation for us, since we're essentially creating a wargame from scratch it seems like. Though I guess we could allow kitbashing, it'd get difficult when we get to something like the Lemurian Flesh Construct. And as regards the different game modes, we're discussing that earnestly and you should add your thoughts to the doc.So far I think the general thought is>Campaign mode, this is where tunnelers are used most, you dig through a vast campaign map and meet the enemy in battle. Results influence the direction of the ongoing campaign.>Straight up skirmish on a field of battle with some obstacles to dig through>As above, but most of the map must be dug through, with an empty spot here and there
>>88620660This related to any faction?
>>88623972Thought about this a little more and added this to the doc:A General Proposal for the World and How it Works:(This is going to include general gameplay stuff, not sure where to put this)The world is, as above, a hex grid of several layers, and pre-built entrances between layers, or ones that can be dug by players. For simplicity’s sake it is probably best we restrict ourselves to designing a small region of the world, e.g Paris and the layers below Paris.Players are in charge of expeditions. This is your army. There are multiple players on the board.A good chunk of this general world map must be dug through, if one wants to navigate it. This is where the Worker units will be used most.Players pursue their objective, whatever that may be, and when they come into conflict, any units lost in battle are lost for good. You cannot replace individual units. You can only recruit more when you resupply at your factions/a neutral resupply point. This means that if you lose all your Worker units in a battle (e.g in a cave-in) you cannot progress any further. You must retreat to a resupply point and recruit more.Similarly, if you lose a good chunk of your combat units it would be a bad idea to pick a fight with another player who has a fresh army/expedition.Recruiting is done through a system of resources that are increased by successful expeditions, factional dependent, e.g Atlans get more Titanium which gets them more units, colonials get cash/prestige.This will probably mean it’s a long form game that will take several hours to finish, at the earliest, since what I’m describing I’d like to call campaign mode. Don’t know how many people are up for that. Hell, it’s probably better we work out the basic rules of combat first instead of jumping into a general campaign, but I’m writing this down for later.What do anons think?
>>88623972>>88624104>This will probably mean it’s a long form game that will take several hours to finish, at the earliestI've though that maybe a campaign system similar to Mordheim, Frostgrave or TNT would fit better. Players decide their campaign moves beforehand and meet to play out the actual battles. This would unfortunately make some players miss out on some action if we use a big enough hex map, although that could be fixed by just having more players or objectives that force everyone to meet upOn the topic of models: most of the stuff in the compass can be proxied fairly easily, either with existing 3d models or just a box of Perry historicals.
>>88621109the 'jak loosk a little like Atlan and above Akritai is taken.Mind being to the left of Akritai?And possibly finding a new 'jak. Not a problem to add this one, but a different one may work better for New Mu.

>>88626825Actually, I completely forgot about King Perseus. He has cool lore and it would be a shame not to use him. But I guess it's a good time to figure out Atlantean and Atlan lore. Atlantis is supposed to be kingdom but a democracy and the Atlan Republic somehow has a king. Here's my take on the timeline:>Atlantis falls to the 5th (as per doc) layer kinda like Paris did>It falls into the underground sea and is still an island>They recover and settle the surrounding islands and parts of the coast>Go up a layer and find deposits of Titanium>Titanium is obviously not the chemical element, but a supernatural substance>Atlantean scholars conclude that it's remains of the Titans, an extinct race of rock giants from whom Atlanteans and Atlans claim partial descent (Atlas, specifically)>They may or may not have a connection to Hyperborea (Atlas "holding up the sky" can mean many things)>Mining colonies are established, over time locals become obsessed with Titanium, start straight up worshipping it>They hoard Titanium, refuse to ship it to the metropole and proclaim themselves an independent Atlan Republic ("Atlan" is just a regional dialect for "Atlantean")>Eternal War between Atlantis and the Atlans begins>Over time power in the republic concentrates more and more in the hands of the military, it becomes a dictatoship>The Titanium King could be an actual king (like Napoleon became emperor) or it could just be a moniker and not his actual title>War takes a toll on Atlantis and the king's grip on power grows weaker>Nobles rebel and win, can't decide on a new king and settle on a temporary Regent. The position becomes permanent over time. Atlantis becomes an aristocratic republic with limited lowborn participation.OR>A new king (Perseus II) is proclaimed, but the aristocracy and the lowborn manage to secure some concessions. Now it's something like a semi-constitutional monarchy.Thoughts?
>>88628315wasn't it the Mu that were hosting diving expeditions in the original chart?
>>88629837>Titanium is obviously not the chemical element, but a supernatural substance(mistakenly first called Titanium for its visual similarity to the chemical)
>>88629855I guess that in addition to the barely-touched water maps, there are now never-touched underwater maps!
>>88629855Why not both? We could have Mu-Atlantean underwater combat. With extra Morlocks!
>>88629880>I guess that in addition to the barely-touched water maps, there are now never-touched underwater maps! Imagine being the enthusiastic underwater combat rule loving player who has an underwater army and actually finding another player with an underwater army.That's what we call kino.
>>88629837Atlan shouldn't be a thing because the poster who keeps making units for them is a lazy nigger who just color swaps the post or uses generic medieval wojak. There's only Atlantis and Atlanteans because we're using lost civilizations, not some lethargic low effort copypaste of the atlantean jak posts. literally stealing half the text from other Atlantean jaks, including greek fire.
>>88629975>the poster who keeps making units for them is a lazy nigger who just color swaps the post or uses generic medieval wojakand that's a good thing
>>88629975I can confirm there are at least two people making Atlans, but I kinda see what you mean. But I think they have their own established identity at this point. "THIS MEANS WAR!", obnoxiously slow armored units, etc. So I think it's better to improve on them.
>>88629975Bit too late for that Anon
Hello anons, it is me, the dude who has been updating the Unit lists in the lore doc with the chart. PSA for our underground factions, Lemuria is flying head and shoulders in front of the rest in terms of units, Mu is close behind, and Atlan/Atlantis are lagging. The Sky People are definitely the farthest back, and as far as non faction groups go: There are Outlanders who seem to be sky people in and of themselves but have very obvious surface tech, my guess is surface dwellers who cruise around as pirates and aeronatuical mercenaries and guides, making lives out of the layers and thereby making them “Outlanders”, no longer from the surface but inhabitants of the underground. (New golden age of piracy only it is sky reavers raiding the mostly Balloon-operated entry routes?) There are Olm-Men, Gorge (lmao), Clockwork thinkers, and renaissance/medieval Neanderthals/Tribals of the layers to build on for free units if you want.
>>88630116>>88630017they're mucking up making coherent lore and secondly this is just storyboarding. We're barely past throwing darts at the board as is. So there's plenty of room for refinement.
>>88630321‘Course, didn’t mean that as a command to work on sky people or stop working on Lemurians, just said it as a status update as things stand now. If anyone would like to use the info they can, if not, it’s there as a point of reference anyways. There’ll be more threads after this to flush it out anyways
>>88624871Voice of Mu>Introduced in latest edition>AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA>Needs a swarm of morlocks just to prevent him from getting shot immediately
>>88630185I thought we agreed that clockwork thinkers go on the hyperborea chart?
>>88630185I'll get to work on some sky peoples unitsGeneral theming? I'm thinking Arabian aesthetics with some Greek sprinkled in for flavor. Very classical to contrast these slowly industrializing factions
>>88630185Small suggestion for a change to one US unit. Make the American Expeditionary Corps US Marines instead. During the time of the setting, if America needed to intervene or invade, it was done by the Marines. This includes interventions done on behalf of business interests, etc. (see the entirety of the Banana Wars), and given that's essentially who's sending the AEC, a small name change might give them some grounding and cool factor.
>>88631043>General theming?The Sky People have generally been considered as the "Holdover from 1e" somewhat comedic relief faction. What with the PROOOOOOTing skyelleafints and whatnot
>>88631066Alright. Legacy unit references (Like with the Reformed Grogs), slightly funnier descriptions.
>>88631043I'm thinking Hindu mixed with Chinese mythology. Most of the chinese pantheon literary lived in the clouds.
>>88631103>>88631077Below the leg fish>Skypeople Gorg Bomber>Dedicated Aerial auxillery>No sense of self preservation>Half the normal fuel capacity of a normal craft due to filling one of his tanks with Stinkjuice>Special ability allows him to cropdust part of the battlefield as he plummets to certain doom>Godspeed Gorg. May you fly forever in the afterlife.
Atlantean Sharpshooter>It would be weird if Atlanteans DIDN'T independently invent firearms>They are still muzzleloaders though>Luckily Atlantean crystal visor surpasses Surface optics by generations>Very high accuracy and less darkness penalities>Completely turns the tables when he loots Surface gunsLeft of Homo Atlanteum
>>88631053Noted, not all US units would fit into Marines however (Tlingit auxiliaries, Cobras Fumates, underground railroaders) >>88630918Did we? I'd be down for it as the only other mention of clockwork is the brazilian industrial syndicate guys, who also had a serious hand in the desolation of the Firmament.
>>88631461Yeah I'm aware, I just thought it'd be more historically in line for the "regular" US infantry to be Marines. also gives me the excuse to shoehorn the Gunny in.
>>88631461>Only other mention of clockworkdon't forget the analytical engines!
>>88629975Blame the shitters who created 2e.
>>88631482Gunny definitely can go in despite not making it onto the chart since it’s a more than fair addition, I could say. If any anons agree feel free to drop a comment on the doc once I slot him in there. While I’m here, there are some Mystery Meats that have yet to be taken care of, no, not the Austrian kind. Namely, Warfare Existentionalist and the Chem Grenadier, what faction exactly should they fit into? I’m drawing blanks. Also the Lemurian Officer in the OG chart is very much a WW1 looking mofo, does not fit at all with the leading Lemurian vibes, so if the original anon who posted him is among us or an especially creative anon feels like they can shoehorn it into making sense I am all ears.
Mu Doppelganger>Mu Spy/Assassin>The Ancestor's Love has touched him>Can assume the appearance of another unit upon assassination>The longer he stays hidden the harder stealth rolls get>Certain artifacts and abilities can help detect him>"We're all wearing masks..."

>>88623441Rules Anon here, I haven't been active for a couple days, had some shit to work on.>suggestion system is a little annoying to use.suggest a better one lol. No honestly. I dont see whats wrong with just typing stuff.Rules are barebone but I have done as much as I could. I could, but dont want to create the entire rule set alone. Its a collaborative effort, so guys go into that doc and start discussing.>>88623595Well its a good idea to work on that parallelly>>88623791For the start lets just use Pain or something. We could maybe to VTT if enough anons have t and are willing. Digging in games isnt hard to do at all. Just place cutouts and flip them or remove them from the board when its dug trough.>>88623819Too complicated and off the rails. But if you do create a nice system feel free to suggest something.>>88623972it is, I know its a meme and funny but lets chill with the 3d stuff. >Lemurian Flesh ConstructJust kit-bash lol. And douse it all in corrosive glue.>Campaign mode>Just a series of skirmish battles on different types of maps. The result of every skirmish is your beginning position of the next one.Say you start a game with 10 soldiers adn 5 workers, but in the battle you lose 4 workers and 5 soldiers. Do you push on or stay in camp for some R&R, waiting for reinforcements to come. After all only one worker cant dig alone trough the next map. The other player seeing he has no opposition is tree to pass trough the next skirmish alone, or well just fighting the NPCs (controlled by the other player?). Or maybe he wants to finish the other player so a new skirmish battle starts, the map being the players camp. >The games will last long.Yes, thats why we need to optimize the actual game to be as fun and as simple as possible. Thats why the old digging system was replaced.>A good chunk of this general world map must be dug through, if one wants to navigate it. This is where the Worker units will be used most.
>>88624104>Each aftion could have its own starting location.France Paris, US, Appalachians, Balkans Prokletije, Ottomans, Istanbul, Russians Kamchatka, Italians the Vulcano they are feeding and so on. >A good chunk of this general world map must be dug through, if one wants to navigate it. This is where the Worker units will be used most.Nice idea. Should I bring more workers so I can dig more and faster? Arrive at a location first and try to mine as much of the valuables as I can before the others come and contest my claim.>Players pursue their objective, whatever that may be...Yes! This. You can replace units but its gonna take them some time to get to you. The deeper you are the longer it will take them to arrive.We could maybe set up more caps as we go down. We could have to balance a couple resources, like Money (the value of valuable goods we find, sending them topside), Food and Bmats maybe, for constructing as stuff.>This will probably mean it’s a long form game that will take several hours to finish...A full campaign could not be finished in one sittin if we are playing with 10 or how many layers there are now. lets say that every layer has a couple of maps where battle can take place. It Will last along time. But if we could bring a battles to be short, 20-30 min lets say, it would maybe be doable.
>>88637420Perseusbro, since you've actually made the guy, what do you think on working him into the whole democracy thing >>88629837I peronally like Perseus and don't mind scrapping the Regent, even though he was my suggestion. They are even both reluctant rulers.
>>88636436Kataphraktoi versus Immortals would be a fun matchup to see
>>88639658You could always make it extra convoluted by making the monarchy an elected position (thanks Naboo) and the regent is standing in for the true king who will return from the depths one day Hopefully completely normal and without significant mutations or corruption
>>88640318Or it's a weird double throne monarchy with one hereditary position and an elected one, to keep a balance between old nobility and popular class.
Reserved top left for Atlantean leader until its decided whether we're going for Perseus or Regent.I honestly like Regents 'jak better, will probably use it for whichever of the two we settle on.De-reserved spot on the bottom right because I didn't get a response from the poster.Some stuff editorialised. Skypeople Gorg Bomber because Skypeople Bomber who is a Gorg lover, in particular.
>>88636436Also, both the exact tile AND cataphract status already taken.Used the proper spelling though, as you posted.
>>88640416>>88639658It's pretty simple, just have Regents be regional rulers who adhere to the constitutional monarchy and obey the king under the law. Basically like Elector Lords. You could rewrite them to be more like 40K comissars or sergeants in a way.
Far left should be something like “Descended Monarchs”>Great men often feel the pull of the deep>Kings of mixed surface/underworld armies>Sometimes at risk of getting more lore than the actual Agarthan factionsI was going to try and make a jak of Napoleon and Malcolm playing chess, but then my laptop died.
The Amazon>From a Deep-Folk tribe of tall and muscular warrior women>Very strong and mobile, but low tech and squishy>Good scout and tracker>Only one can be hired per expedition>When she departs, you will have to let one of your male units go with her>"Hail, Surface-born, dare you enter our magical realm?"Either above Camels or below Deep-Folk.
>>88640617Sorry, wrong version
>>88640596This is strictly for underground factions so surface dwellers, even ones who have descended
Atlantis seems like the Anglo-Franco faction of the deep.That is, the approachable "normal" faction.
>>88640575I was thinking of just rewriting the Regent into a unique olm-riding general with the extra action buff. All I really ask is that Perseus gets the "Atlantis will rise again!" (Literally) quote.
>>88640473>De-reserved spot on the bottom right because I didn't get a response from the poster.I did answer you, >>88626711Scrap the Shroom Doctor, Keep and rename the Shroom Knight to Atlan Knight Hospitaliers.

Having a hard time understanding the geography of layers and everything? There's a sky? 2 (3?) Suns?
>>88641513There is the normal sun and maybe a Inner Sun (THE HEART-SUN) who somehow propagate it's light around the layers. Who are mostly just that, layers; some cavernes are just so fucking big the roof is a "sky"

I know Colonials are already done, but I'm working on some jak for fun anyway. Got some inspiration.Also unrelated but have some cool Vernian art.
>>88642049Feel free to post it here! I am updating the unit lists regularly so if it’s a reasonable addition I don’t see why it cant make it on.

>>88642496Fucking Atlan cargo cult.
PSA after the most recent update by the unit list dude, Atlan got a kick in the pants and now very comfortably outshines Atlantis in terms of unit lists. As it stands, Atlan uses a heavyset, slow moving and buff-needy frontline of infantry to grind out enemies, uses slave soldiers as the mobility and screening component to soak damage on the approach with the option for springgunners if for some reason you want to try and outshoot colonials (???) Atlantis has Kataphraktoi, alchemists, sharpshooters, Prometheans and iconoclasts that seem to be providing a very explosive and more mobile unit list, AoEs, sniping potential, obliterate things before they get into combat range and sweep the remains with heavy olm cavalry, hammer and anvil potential using Akritai though don't expect them to perform like immortals. these are the current leading vibes, Atlantis and the Sky People are now neck and neck which is ironic in and of itself, but with the next update I imagine the skypeople will also pull ahead. outside of these, there're also the outlanders I mentioned in >>88630185
>>88642801Noted.MORE ATLANTEAN TROOPS. I like that they're falling into the "Evenly statted jack of all trades" kind of faction. The sort of entry-level underground army that isn't too intimidating to put together or figure out tactics for.And I think Mu could use a few extras too, perhaps.
>>88642835Mu is currently a bit all over the place, divided into really complex, high reward high risk single units like doppelgangers and Imaterii that can win or lose in an instant. basic but effective cavalry spam lists, high mobility saur knights and keshig running a cyclone around your offensive-defensive anvil of pikemen, to the no brain cells all balls to every wall Morlock Horde gameplay. based on what we know, the Tall-fin is the ideal leader choice for a morlock build, for obvious reasons. the emperor I have to imagine is the most martial of the leader options and packs a lot of punch by himself, so fits in with the straightforward approach of the standard army build where you are looking to engage on good terms only and the empress has really convoluted rules and hard to understand play, so she probably fits with the more esoteric side of doppelgangers and imaterii magi, perhaps inclusive of the priestesses' morale play
>>88642801speaking of which you might as well repost the Prometheans into the compass as well.
>>88642988I just do lore doc stuff, I’m including things from all the charts so they’ll make it in regardless of if they’re reposted, if whoever updates next wants to though they’re more than happy to, the Promethean was a really good addition lore wise and gameplay mechanic wise.
>>88642801Can we get specific numbers of units for each faction real quick?Will help to even things out.
>>88643211England - 9 France - 7America - 12Russia - 7Japan - 4 Ottomans - 8 Atlantis - 7Atlan - 11Mu - 12 Lemuria - 12 Sky People - 7 Hyperborea - 3All of these are further bolstered by a whopping 56 non-aligned mercenaries, monsters, and character models.
Atlantean Field Chirurgeon>Ying to the Alchemist's Yang>Heals and stabilizes wounded units>Makes drugs and poisons>Not the best fighter, but has a high crit chanceBelow Aristocrat
Psycho-Socialitewherever near Atlantean unitsmore Entropic if possible>Atlantis has many chemicals to enhance beauty>Some women are allergic>"Welp, send them to the front lines!">Fast, fragile, high melee damage>Explodes into chemical cloud on death>Pray they don't get sniped while still near your army
>>88643320>Japan - 4>Hyperborea - 3Both newly released factions as a teaser for 5e, expected to have low unit options prior to 5e's full release.So, a few more for Atlantis and Skypeople and everything is evened out?
Atlantean Promethean, left of Akritai>Made up of grizzled veterans too old to be effective on the front lines>attempted to save byzantium during the siege of Constantinople>the cause of seething for most horde army users due to AOE>rules didn't get updated for two editions which caused even more seething amongst Mutards and their cav spam lists
>>88643742Atlan already has a ton of aoe, could this be artillery or something?
Doing an update for next thread's OP
>>88643320>England 9>America 12Next opportunity I'm putting some more wacky steam contraptions in so the yanks don't stay ahead. Anyone up for monocycles?
>>88643981Yeah, I'm working on some Vernian units for the frogs too. Stuff around Eiffel and pneumatic/hydraulic tilt wearing soldiers. French are supposed to be kinda unhinged after the fall of Paris and obviously embracing technology if they have a giant tower, so I feel it would fit thematicly (plus they already got a steam/ car and ceilling dwelling snipers).
>>88642496the Princess already gives a morale boost, got another idea for what this guy can provide?
The Scion>Young Atlantean nobles often use their family wealth in pursuit of adventure>Brings some useful servants along as a bonus>Actually a pretty great melee fighter with high Evasion>Gets substantial crit bonus based on morale>Morale hard to keep high because he's a whiny prick>Bonus damage to enemy leaders>Love him or hate him - there's no middle groundBelow top left square.
>>88644069I figured several units can give morale. What if you don't take the Princess? What if she's out of range? His morale boost is far weaker and has smaller range.
>>88644134Actually, scratch that. He LOWERS enemy morale.
>>88644134>What if you don't take the Princess?I'd envision opting not to take Princess means your army is vulnerable to Morale damage. Tactical give and take to your army comps.Like, Titanium King may make your Immortal army fucking insane in martial combat, but Princess would probably be taken to deal with a major weakness and make Atlan armies more reliable.
>>88643829Well, Alchemist is supposed to throw his bombs, or launch them somehow, filling that role. Prometheans could be straight up flamethrowers. They'll need actual line of fire and would be more medium range.
>>88643742>>88643829We updating this to artillery?
>>88644317Flamethrowers works.Atlantis identity as reckless AoE nutjobs seems to be coming together nicely.
>>88644317Atlantis already has iconoclast flamethrowers

>>88644623Post in the new thread so I don't miss it with the next update.
