Welcome to Adventure Civ Medieval!In this quest, you will help a medieval realm strive and grow as trouble arises and other nations work on their own agendas.Last time, an Orc horde attacked the copper realms, which helped reunite them against the invader and stop their internal wars. The copper Golden maidens' lands were raided by the people of the forest, and they took many angry women to their homes. A queen from the sea visited Elfland. After she left, the whole entire fleet sunk in a terrible storm.The Bowtie kingdom declared war to the ratlands, and developed its tactics and plans for a long-term war. Their Queen became an immortal lich.The Sun people made spas and spa embassies.how to play:1) choose a realm to play for. change your name to reflect your choice (ex: Bowtie Noble). Max 4 players per realm.2)each turn, your realm has 2 actions. You can choose a cultural, technological, or immediate acion, plus one bonus action based on your realms' bonus action(if your realm has a bonus tech action, you can do any action one time per turn, plus a tech action).3)discuss with your compatriots which actions you will take. Once you're done, reply to my recap anchor post with the recap of your actions.twitter: @Opee_Adventuresprevious thread: >>246624
>>269671REPORTING FOR DUTY
hell yeah new bread hypu!! (great art btw)
>>269671Warlord ready to war here.
>>269671the mapnow I'll make the updates
Good. Opee is back
>>269712but opee good' why you say opee badbad winged sun
>>269712you're hurting my feelings, winged sun.
>>269715Im on Phone ;-D
>>269712>>269715>>269718Please guys, lets keep this civil
>>269689sunbro right here chief>>269709didn't we discover some land last turn?
turn 8 end!The classical shamans attempted to make the holy spa a training ground for new adepts. However, they could not force the self-indulging shamans and warriors out of the promised resort!Disgusted in their people's degeneracy, the classical shaman secluded themselves in their temples, training under the harsh sunlight all day long, until some of them finally rediscover magical secrets long lost.The Bowtie embassy reported a demand for help building a wall. The classical shamans saw no reason to decline the proposal. the action now needs to be taken by the bowties.
>>269759Where all of you really sure steve was a virgin when you send him off?
>>269759oh hey. some progress
>>269759aww I guess that was pretty obvious. well we should still try to find a place where the sun shamans can fit in so they can work together with the classical shamans.@sunbros, you guys got any idea how to get them to work on something they'll be good at and still get something out of them?
>>269778pfft. use them as human canonballs cuz they're so fat. Or have them make big guy memes, meme magic is real after all
>>269772he was. that's how we got wraith in the first place i think
>>269784maybe steve is a holy spirit that would've been a fat classical shaman in this age. he's trying to help the classical shamans because he doesn't like how the fat shamans are behaving nowadays. is steve a spirit? can we commune with the steve spirit?
>>269793or have the classical shamans use wraith to spook the lazies. Who kows, maybe we'll summon Steve's spirit with it
Rolled 90, 11, 14 = 115 (3d100)Ratlands invasion!first roll: attackers!new tactics(20) + scouting bonus(+10) + troop quality (20) + attacking(-20) = +30second roll: defenders!hills (10) + defense: gunpowder(20) + troop quality (-10) + defending(20) + surprise factor(?) = +40?third roll: surprise factor!0-50: +0 defense51-80: +30 defense81-100: +50 defense
>>269798Turn Steve into a holy martir and have the fat shamans aspire to live up to his image (or a more idealised image of him)
>>269798don't think that would be wise we need to treat the fatties right and give them some job they would like.
>>269778Again: we can take your fatties and turn them into Spartans if you wish Just don't become irrelevant
>>269809If you'd be willing to sent some trainers through our embassy and train them, sure. >>269798also I got an idea for communications maybe we should try to train hawks for swift communications and make birdkeepers that also double as shamans with possession magic. might give us intel quicker.
>>269806NOW WE ARE THE ONES THAT COME KNOCKING, RATS
>>269821Could just imagine the Queen saying "I AM THE DANGER!"
>>269819possessed animals always sound good
>>269839would make us more intelligence based too. getting a peak in information gathering. would also make us able to respond to threats or calls for help faster.
Ahh the good ole days
>>269851when the bowties still liked you. no one understands us, we just want to be friends and share our fun with you guys
>>269846"the sun signal! Quick! to the sunmobile!"
>>269860but nobody wants to recieve the warmth of the sun. what a shame
>>269871their loss.but on the game side, what about our turn. for the first thing I hope the bowties will want to build the wall with us. and for the other actions. the hawks might be good. also maybe try to commune with spirits for wisdom?
>>269871Who needs sunlight when they can have n o s k i n a n d s h u n t h e l i v i n g
>>269806To better prepare for his upcoming assault, the Marquis called the best engineers of the realm, and asked for tools to better see his opponents' movements. They came up with telescopes, built with Sun people glass.Finally confident his preparations are complete, the Marquis led his trained, well equipped troops beyond the border, aiming for the closest cities to serve as campaign headquarters. The rats were prepared, but the shift in tactics pummeled their confidence, as their shots bounced off the formations harmlessly. With ingenuous use of the terrain, the Marquis cut the ratreat of his opponents and massacred them by the thousands. The cities did not resist long. They're ground-level houses surrounded by low stone walls, with a burrow complex beneath, that let the most influent rats leave the city unseen.Hearing the news of the Marquis' great successes, the Queen herself went to New Septent with her skeletal host to see for herself. She officially rewarded the Marquis, a blessing any proper noble would die for.
>>269899WE'VE GOT RATS IN OUR SOCIAL ORDER NOW
>>269880yes. I hope the classical shamans get so butthurt they learn all the magics. Also we got giant mirrors to focus sunlight, maybe we could make a weapon out of that.
>>269906sounds pretty good, I've got to go now so I'll leave the turn and memes in your hands for now
>>269909No! The memes are to supreme for a one man team!
>>269899I think we should use our action this turn to build the wall with the sunbros, and use our tech to learn from the rats about their society so we can better integrate them into ours
>>269915I love you you glorious asshole but I need my beautysleep too you know, if you can't make a turn by yourself we'll be able to make one later hopefully.
>>269918I'm also gettin sleepy. It's okay though, it's not like Opee has a whole day between updates or anythin
>>269928We can sleep on our turn then, its what our nation would probably do too.
>>269916Do you think we really could spend a tech to learn about rats?I mean it's research, right?
>>269949i think so?
>>269935If the sun nation was properly emulated in gameplay, we wpuld have just slept through the entirw game only to wake up at the end to witness the ending and immediately taking a nap
>>269954Well I suppose we could then!Let's wait until all the turns are done to finalize anything.
>>269955You would wake up and immediatly cause the lands to sink
>>269960Sounds like a plan
>>269888The copper engineers have found a way to make a cart advance on its own using a steambot engine! but it only has an on/off lever. The first version didn't have the off option, either.Guard towers were set on the beaches, but the country doesn't have the means to build more defenses as it is right now.Though not in control of the area, the orcs have been raiding the western provinces all year long, hindering their recoveries.
>>269961>ahh that was a nice nap, oh hey what does this button do
>>269972>in our defence, that red button with a whirlpool could have meant anything
>>269961Gotta live up to our name
>>269968Oh boy, looks like Some orcs are still hanging around.
>>269968Did we just make a steam powered car? Holy shit thats good.
>>269968Jesus Christ We made a steam car
>>269982>laugh track>freeze frame>roll credits

>>270002If you make something we could use to make saunas that would be awesome
>>270002Absolutely Also English accents chaps We classy now
>>270009I thought that was the bowties' shtick
>>269998>Trees roll a 95 out of 100>Rats crit fail defence roll>Rats still get +80 for defenceMotherfucking rats man.
So coppers how about Action:expand our farms and build more in the south east (we need our pop to grow)Tech: steering for the cars
>>270021We still need to deal with the orcs in the west. Thats whats crippling our population growth right now.
>>269998I told them about The Improved Weapons.I told 'em.
>>270021>doesn't have means to build more defenses>gets raided every year by orcs wut
>>270034Coppers still can't into walls.
>>270030How about we raid and enslave them?
>>270063I'm not sure how hard it be to keep a ork slave, better yet just send forces to exterminate as many as they can and to enslave any noncombatants (if those exist for orks)Then instead of just adding steering for the carts improve the cart all around to add things needed for cars like steering amount of fuel left meter etc.
>>269998The elves improved their magical abilities. They learned uproot, which gives trees the ability to rise from the ground as ents. They only fight defensive battles, though.The people of Elfland, fleet deprived, focused their violence on their rat neighbors with a grand, disorganized assault with no particular goal. The troublesome copper women were promised ownership of themselves if they volunteered in, everyone hoping they'd die quickly on the field.The morale was very good, everyone eager to duke it out after the loss of their ships. The attackers were fierce and merciless.The local rat guards were reinforced by the Litter's Little Helpers, their king's host of necromantic mages! Those fearsome death weavers were escorted by a troop of mice cossacks of the capital.The cossacks came with a barrel of vintage cave brew, for them and the Helpers. The guards wanted some of it, but were refused.In the night, a group of thievy guards attempted to steal the cossacks' brew. But well aware of their people's nature, the cossacks were taking turns watching the barrel! A brawl ensued, which escalated until someone got shot!Then, complete chaos ensued. The nearby guards were startled awake, thinking the camp was under attack! Some started running away, then others followed, until the entire camp was running away, leaving only confused warlocks behind.The warriors found only empty camps and undefended villages. No battle was fought. turn 9 start! there will be an event next turn!
>>270086The rats need to get it together
>>270100Well that's what we're here for.
>>270129We need to start distributing brandy to win the rat masses
>>270134Do we even know of alcohol?
>>270142no, but we could with our basic chemistry, maybe?
>>270086>The Rats know death magicONLY OUR QUEEN CAN KNOW THATKILL ALL WARLOCKS
>>270152NO ONE EXPECTS THE BOWTIE INQUISITION.SACRIFICE THE HERETICS
>>270151I think winning them over via non-consumable means would be better.Maybe we'll learn a bit about how they tick once we study them.
Better idea for the orcs, instead of just sending in troops to deal with them they are ordered to completely expell them from the land so the western territory can be claimed for the coppers so the nation can be expanded.
>>270156We wouldn't even know about it since we dont actually have contact with the treetribe and their warfront, same for the warlocks, i think?
>>270167Yeah. I don't think The Tree tribe actually know any of that either, as far as they know they just hopped up to an empty camp.
>>270185And now they've gotta deal with a bunch of free women, none of which died during the attack
hello sorry i haven't been here whats the plan
>>270243We're currently at war with the rats, but tension between the queen and the sea which have also rissen when the queen reached lvl 7 death magic and became a lich. We're trying to sorta integrate the conquered rats into our society, aswell as build a wall together with the sunbros against the sea
>>270270soAction:wall with sunTech:? any ideas
>>270288We where thinking about using tech to learn from the rats to better integrate them into our society, if possible?
>>270288Our Tech is going to be studying Rat Advancements and society.They have some things that we don't, including gunpowder.
>>270288Studying Rat's technology. Either that, or torture and interrogation devices. I'm fine with either.
Throwing out an idea for when the rest of the coppers come.Action: Send forces to the west to deal with the orcs and to claim the land for the coppers.Tech:??? Make use of our new steam carts somehow like adding crop harvesters to them or something?
>>270341So something along the lines of having the rats teach us about themselfs and their tech, and in return they recieve the same rights as commoners?
Copypasta incoming treefags.I propose we either:1. expand spy networks more2. Implement harsher discipline amongst women. By the way OP, do we not threaten to cut womens tongues anymore, or is that not harsh enough to keep them in line?3. We have the largest population, so we are naturally prone to rebellion and internal divisions. The only way to deal with it in national interests at heart is to negotiate with the rebellious women. If they truly are unwilling to negotiate, they are traitors and must justifily be killed, but otherwise they are free to negotiate terms limited within our societal structure.4. BUILD TREE WALL5. REBUILD FLEET (FUCK YOU OP YOU FROG)6. Magic aint happening boys, its a wasted effort that gives our enemies tech turn advantages. I'm telling you, we gotta secure our sea border.And new suggestion:7. Ent protectors on the interior can free up warriors on the exterior. SO we can do > Elven entmasters==> domestic police protectors> Human sailors, archers and boar riders==> army
>>270341We will never need interrogation stuff.
>>270364I'd rather we holocaust those fuckers and finally claim victory over our ancient enemy rather than make them our elves.But I guess we'd gain more from integrating them. Establish a class of rat Engineers at Guard and Priest level and fully benefit from their expertise... But they'll have to wear bowties.
>>270430When the sea witch and the fishmen attack, waterboarding won't even do the trick. We need some real brutal and radical shit. Also, don't be such a buzzkill, nigga.
>>270434No, fuck your interrogation methods and genocidal bullshit.We're making these rats into citizens because we're better than those rats ever were. We can stand on a pile of dead bodies and learn nothing, or make soldiers out of the sons of the bastards that killed our ancestors.
>>270459That's exactly what the second paragraph adressed.
>>270391After consulting this and our most recent turn, I can conclude our actions should be:> Action: Rebuild fleet> Culture: Adept male magicians use ent summoning as police and keep the peace inside the realm.At least this can help calm down the womanfighting going on in the inside.
>>270469I'm just very weary about doing this right. We've marched through two games trying to get this far, and we're just now taking our first steps into solving our issues.
>>270485Get rat villagers and rat engineers. Also, whatever the fuck happened to the doctors? Healthcare will inevitably be an issue with the rats around. All aboard the black plague express.
>>270500We had a chance to improve medicine, but searching for immortality tipped off The Queen.We have promises to uphold to sun people and Rats to Naturalize right now.
>>270518I wouldn't consider looking for immortality "medicine". Pretty sure that's magic. Was a dumb idea, anyway. Plus, now we have chemistry to aid us. Our next few turns will be spent dealing with the suns, interating rats and I'd sugest researching medicine, too. Hopefully world events don't target us so we have this going smoothly, but with our Sea Witch problem, I doubt it.
>>270536I think more Rat Troops and Gunpowder will help us greatly with any sea witch problems.As for medicine we should certainly research it when we're able!
>>270086Are you gonna make an Anchor Post Opee?
>>270391Couldnt the Ents maintain peace and order and STOP teh wimmin from destroying us. Defensive only... I say we learn more magics and try to make them offensive...? end the cunt rebellion for good. >To all players, suggestion>We all team up against the sea, then the Rats.
>>270391you said magic wouldnt work!!! It got us Ents, I say we keep learning new magic and use the magic to re-enforce our city. make Treeland Great again.
Orrr tree wall. but with magic... WAITWe could build a great tree wall and fill it with Ents, so if the wall comes down, the ents go and massacre the attackers!
>>271656What if you just made the wall out of tree ents?
>>271656Nigga that was copypasta. And magic we can definitely focus on but we ain't gonna magic shit if womyn be beating us.Also, we can't trust just ents if womyn can also summon them given magic. We need to focus on ent summoning with men controlling the summoning.
>>271765What if there are woman ents
>>271765Shouldnt we search the villages and camps to see if we can find anything to learn the secrets to either necromagic or gunpowder?
>>271781> he thinks trees have genders like people>>272155no, later, now we fix the stateITS ABOUT DOMESTIC POLICY PEOPLE
sunbros where we at? still napping?For our turn I suggest leaving the spa resorts for what they are, atleast for now.I like the idea getting birdkeepers in all embassies and major cities for swift communication, as of now we have no quick way of reaching out to our embassies.another action that someone came up with is giant mirrors for focussed sunlight. they could be used for praying and for harm.other things we could focus includes:- the overal quality of our common folk.- banning the spa rights of the lazy shamans through the power of the classical shamans and warriors- get some more architecture to fancy up the place.- ward the (now being constructed) wall with wards- commune with spirits for ideas, they could probably help us.- if we're gonna focus on intel gathering we could use spirits to fly over the lands which would give us details what the other realms are up to. right now we know very little of what the others do in game, we only know the mayor points such as the war with the orcs because refugees tell us.there's probably other good or better options but this was what I could think of for now.
>>272469What about spa and holidays will be for most productive citizens?
>>272501We can ban them from spa services if they don't work they get no spa
Coppers Our turn is by majorityTech: MEGA HARVESTER. Basically putting blades on the wheels and dramatically increases harvests and food productionAction: Invade the orc lands. Also capture orcs.We move in a formation with shields and then crossbowmen. Lots of crossbows and ballistas.The warriors from the warlords are in front and kneel for the crossbow engineers and our siege to just FUCK the orcs up. The maidens are also in front as they have the most armour and defensive tactics.Embassy thing: Send a 2 trainers to the sun people to try turn their lazy faggot asses into spartans Brutal training is a go.
>>271765Nigga, good idea, make magic a man-only practice. Teach wimmin how to melee maybe? But our men's still use dem bows n shieeeet
>>272582how do you add text in the draw thingy ?
>>272186>>272155Agreed, Buff Archer is correct. Focus on us for now, focus on them after a few turns of fixing shiet and getting control of the wimmin
>>272582Sounds awesome, I'm in
>>272691Yo how should we make our turn?
>>272871well. world event's coming. we gotta figure out how to deal with our biggest current problem: lazy fatsos. and from what opee said in our last turn, its not only the shamans, but also the warriors. Most troubling. Only the classicals arebeing active right now so we need to use them. Either through their magic because its most likely the lazies are only pretending to have magic at this point or through the usage of the sun lens, may shining giant beams straight at the shamans? Hopefully this wont backfire and merely give them a sweet tan.
>>272922We can try sure
>>272932But which plan? Epic magic fight to ban all lazies from spas until they improve? Commune with spirits or the sun for a way to stop them? Sun lazer to fry their lazy asses? Poison their bath to cull the lazy?
>>272941Civil Wars always an option
>>272582capture orcs? then what? either we integrate them to our society which we shouldnt or turn them to slaves, which can bite us in the ass laterbut I agree that we should make the MEGA HARVESTER and do something about those orcsCAPTCHA: TRAINS!
>>272955At this point it's unavoidable. Unless we have a common enemy that threatens both our lives and laziness.Or the shamans would be too lazy to go to war, eh
Lol at everyone trying to be multiethnic societies like tree nation.
>>272963Do you want us to sparta train your shamans? you can get discipline and we can have an agreement that you can be our ally army (from the battle tactics that we teach you) in case of emergencies?
>>272967>>272958prometheum here btw
>>272958Illegal experiments Inhuman abominationsGolemsThe usual.We arent integrating shit.The orcs will die
>>272973The last two we dont know how to do, the first well we could just get criminals. I just want to throw them in the mines since its looking like were gonna be using lots of coal in the future.>>272981THE ULTIMATE SOLDIER
>>272967well, communication do cost zero actions. So maybe we'll try asking first this turn.What do you think, other sunbros?
>>272582Let's do this, I'm in too
>>272985im scared of an orc uprising thoughORC OF THE FUTURE, TODAY!
>>273008>orcnet>orcs from the future send back orcterminators to kill sarah copper, mother of john copper, leader of the human resistance
>>273012>orcterminator>We need to send back kyle Trees to protect sarah copper
Coppers I really fucking think we should get monocles next turn.We need culture...and better clothes
>>273047Funny thing coming from inbred retards
>>273058Funny thing coming from the asians who couldnt figure out how to make trains. Fucking Emo too
>>273058> uses memes as argumentsgo back and sudoku yourselves emo samurai steamfags
>>273088o shit whaddupSeriously though, so what is our choice right now? Focus on building the wall and use bonus action to fix diplomatic relations? orrr mag>>273058ic and stronger military police force.
>>273087kek, here we are industrialising our nation with literal cars while you guys are still in your forest dealing with women that had enough of you. Also we weren't making a train that turn we were making the engine better and we just so happened to get the steam car.
>>273106still in our forest with YOUR women lol
>>273123Most of which escaped and are training your rebellion. You need to get your prioritys in order.
>>273132the ones that didnt escape got a nice taste of my tree, if you catch my driftwood
>>273132> Spent last few turns fighting each other for stupid reasons> Tells us that we need to focus on potential social conflict> Thinks leftover village women who didn't fight with the warrior women can train a succesful rebellion
>>273150>Golden maidens>Village womenpick one>pro tip>>They aren't village women...
>>273150Wasn't for stupid reasons as in the end we still dealt with all the hostilities between clans thus cementing the nations security by working together like were about to do to the orcs again.
>>273172>again>meaning you failed the first time>failures
>>273179>Trees dont know the difference between repelling an attack and invading and enslaving a hostile land
>>273184wait. eventually wont we have to team up to kill the bowties and their queen?
>>273201TOP KEK MEME I elect you the Meme lord of the Trees
>>273058>Steals Someone else's memes>Uses them as propagandaThis is North Korea levels of sad
>>273210What do you expect, its their token autist posting all these memes.
>>273216>>273214Arre my posts getting through? Doesn't seem like it friendos
>>273218Well I see this post.Might just be some sort of weird lag, it happens to me sometimes.
>>273192Bigger threat is the witch that you know... SINKS ENTIRE CONTINENTS. Besides its more of dickwaving contest between us and the bowties than any actual hostilities.
>>273192>>273220the maidens are after tree blood though
>>273224I know that, I wouldn't help them either since they felt the need to raid one of our members while we were busy with the green hoard.
>>273220>>273224We should hope that The Trees do something about the water witch seducing their elves.We could all end out fighting Trees in a mass horde all over again because an outer force is telling them to.Look at all this history repeating itself.
>>273231wasn't in the tribal phase, I hope there's like an archive or album about it, this has to be one of the most entertaining things I've seen in 4chan
>>273229speaking of which, I think it's high time we give the maidens their own turn, maybe the next round, its usually us the warlords or the engineers benefitting so far
>>269671Hey OpeeI don't see any kind of Anchor Post or anything like that so here's Bowties Turn just in case.Tech: Study up on Rats, let's spend time getting to know them as a people, and what technological advancements they've made over us.Action: Help The Suns build a wall against the water's edge.I don't know how low our rat wall goes, but if we could hook it up to that, then that would be great. That way we can have Bowties manning the whole of it.
>>272990Sending us trainers would be good if we make the deal between the warriors/classicals and coppers. We'd make bootcamps or something.Also maybe we should make a council that includes 3 people of each part of our realm, so classicals, sunshamans, warriors, and the common people.
Buff Elven Archer, make our turn for us, I will do next turn
>>273096>>272155Culture: Elves + Ent policeAction: Rebuild fleet
>>273256Well usually they're the ones making all the tech and military advancements, and that's all you've been developing for quite some time.I'm not in your nation or anything, but I'd prevent coppers from stealing your tech in one way or another.Though they don't seem like they wanna focus on industrializing.Maybe you should centralize.
>>273256Its mainly the engineers getting the tech, once we conquer the orcs I want it to be a shared neutral lands between the clans that helped with the invasion. I was thinking next turn we could introduce capitalism and have the engineers start selling their steam engines like the crop harvesters and the steamers so the everyone else could benefit from all this technolgy. Only sells to us though no other nations get them so we can preserve our tech for just the coppers.
>>273274So everyone but The Maidens?
>>273274No love for the suns? We'd love to have steam engines for saunas.
>>273277>>273274yeaaaah, I feel like the maidens have been getting the short end of the copper stick, plus the fact that if the mermaids fucks around their islands gonna be targeted/affectedmaybe make the orclands some kind of free for all area where we can hold the festivals which can start the more unity proccess?>>273273The problem is centralizing is hard without bloodshed, both china and japan, which are warring states, went through bloody wars just to unite them as seen in qin empire and the never ending backstabbing of Japan, though I do think channeling the dickwaving tendencies of copper warlords into something else like capitalism, competitions or outward conquest could work, or maybe a godless religion (a sect of budhism after all is a way of life and they dont have a God)
>>273267We gotta make the shamans unlazy first for them to participate in anyrhing.So our turn:-commune with spirits and the sun for ideas -use possessed birds for intel-embassy action: ask coppers for a deal in training lazy fatsosThis good? But I wonder if the wall building with the bowties need to ba a mutual action feom both sides. Plus I hope none of these overlaps as were only allowed 2 culture actions
>>273292Maybe you all should just cut off ties with The Maidens and The Elven Feminist/Golden Maiden union will become a new tiny nationality of reverse tree people along The Tree Boarder.
>>273277>>273292wait she's right, we maidens have done numerous things for you and we almost never get things back, we still have maidens in the lands of elves and treetards and we are hungry for our revenge, the trees don' have a fleet anymore so if we want to strike we have to strike now!
>>273293Do you need to help us build the wall or are we just supposed to give half our turn to you?
>>273300Well if you look at it this way, Trees are onlygoing to get more powerful in Tree Magic and more defensive with every turn. Eventually they will overtake The Rebels if Opee isn't secretly doing turns for The NPCs
>>273297can't, they have our mines>>273293>commmune with sunpic related>>273300do you wanna switch the steam car to an action of yours? the steam carrs gonna up resources anyways cause of its ability to transport stuff
>>273293You guys still have not lazy shamans and warriors right? Why not just kidnap them and send them to a surprise boot camp since it seems their adamant against leaving the lazy way of life.>>273300Technically the current actions are just involving the warlords and engineers, so since you're a separate entity from us you should be able to raid them outside the copper main turn as your own little action I think.
>>273301I mean like in the island days. Any action that has any two nations in them needs both teams to use an action.
>>273311Well yeah, do you think Opee will end out halving our efforts if we don't get help?
>>273311>the action now needs to be taken by the bowties.The last turn makes it sound like it just needs to be the bowties
>>273310lol I Wish, we are good in defense and shitty in offense so yeah, also we don't know where our maidens are... but we can send spies to them and rebel the woman against the men, while promising a world where women are more important than men
>>273326>more importantas important*don't go full tumblr on me now golden senpai, I still respect you
>>273329>as importantmore important
>>273326You most likely know about the rebellion, so in theory you could send maidens to start supplying them and to train them to use what you're giving them. Or just pull a underground railroad and smuggle them out.
>>273323>>273321Yeah, it does seem like that when Opee phrased it like that. But we need to be careful. Maybe one of our actions should be changed to build wall with you guy and ward it. With wards.
>>273338The Shiny Wall we'll call it.
>>273342If we develop lasers using the giant mirrors we'll put them on there too. SO WE CAN BURN THE SEA
>>273336riiiiight, assuming we don't integrate and all later on, but they don't have to know thatwhat are you think off though assuming we do a turn as you wish? if you want to discuss privately we can go to steam
>>273293Yeah just phrase it right with the intel. Birdkeepers and shit. Commune with spirits is a good idea too. As for the wall. If you look at the last turn for bowties the action is only on their part. Probably because of the embassies.
>>273376We also need to ward the walls though...oh the choicess
>>273377Warding walls can come later though
>>273381It's just that it seems like a dick move to ask the bowties for a collab wall and then let them build it all.
>>273385If we tell them that we'll man and ward the wall afterwards they'll understand we can man their part of the wall too that would be a good gesture.Put the sunshamans on there its a lazy job that just needs a bit of watching
>>273395The only way we'll get them on there is if we put bath tubs on the wall lmao
>>273401We'll find a way but we can promise this to the bowties out of good will.
We share the harvesters because its not military tech btw
>>273412Actually once Opee comes around we could ask him if the engineers already share non military tech like the harvesters so we know if we need to use a turn to spread it around.
>>273406So replace communication action with telling bowties that we'll ward the wall with our wards and hopefully any new magic?
>>273361oh I don't know, I'm not the best civ player but if we want to start a rebellion we need to do it very carefully, didn't we have some woman refugees from the elves? we can use for spies since maidens can be spotted quite easily i guess
>>273418Telling them uses no action because it'll go through the embassies
>>273418Also we'll guard the walls both on our part and their part and we'll also put wards on all parts of their walls and our walls. This all out of good will.
>>273426>>273430oh yeah, since embassies cost no action. can we use it to communicate with everywhere that has ohr embassies in them
>>273385>>273395Wait, why would we want Suns manning our walls?I can understand the good will out of it, but it would be better to have something that doesn't involve us having to trust each other to watch over whole nations, because one mess up could cause a lot of disruption between the states.Honestly I'd much rather you guys cut off communications with Rats instead.
>>273434Yes without it costing an action
>>273455How do you feel about our wards then? Would you want that?
>>273463well, as >>273455 said, let's hold off manning the walls and just put wards on it nexxt turn if it's okay between nations
>>273465I doubt it right now, the only wall we have is on the boarder of rat territory, and in the recent conquest it's not even on our boarder anymore.Did we get any indication that this wall crosses both our sea boarders or just The Suns?
>>273470Yeah i understand their concern wards would be a neutral thing and be a kind gesture as well. im not thinking too clearly right now because of a headwound
>>273477Alright, fess up m8. Ya wrestle naked too hard didnt you
>>273479Wrestled with a hot long pole of 3m. It did not end well
anyone wants to start an alliance against the fuckcing elfs?
>>273484Sir "If you're an elf kill yourself" anonymous
>>273482>>273486Oh, I got it.How about you teach us how to grow rice?
>>273526oh yeah. you can even eat it with kelp
>>273526We can teach you that im okay with that. All because of good will. Just the others of the sun will have to agree
>>273537Im okay with it
>>273535>>273537Awesome, maybe we can catch up in The Population Race if we get more food sources.Finally, we'll all be eating rice rolled up in kelp.
>>273546We're gonna have good relations again. We love helping others
>>273551Top Kek, "Alliance against the Elfs" let's see how this bullshit turns out
Wait, guys. There's a world event next turn so there is no recap post
>>273635I thought World Event Next Turn meant that we'd send in our turns, then once they're over a world event happens.
>>273641and here I thought next turn means the turn after opee. Homestly Im just trying to explain whe therr was no anchor
>>273649Opee probably just went to sleep and forgot.
>>273641You are correct, we will probably all be getting butt-fucked next turn
>>273678Not if we build this wall!It's like a double strength Event Condom for Water Attacks.
pizza: consumedoh snap I forgot the recap anchor postwhere are the recaps
>>273716Hi Opee.Bowties right here: >>273257
>>273716ayy opee. can we use embassies to communicate with more than one nation per turn?
>>273716>>272582Opee do the engineers already share the agricultural tech?
>>273725yes but you can't relay messages from one country to another for free.>>273731as long as it involves complex machineries: no. If the warlords and maiden had less things to worry about they might consider buying some from them.
>>273716Ah well here is sun turn i guess.-Use possessed birds for communication and intel gathering all over da lands.-Commume with the spirits and the the sun for some guidanceCommunication:-Ask coppers if they're willing to train lazies back into shape-Tell bowties that we can share with them how to grow rice for the help with the wall
>>273678Maybe we should transition our society into turning slaves/indentured servants into our currency instead of womyns since the womyn are so hard to subject
>>273764Also birds mean: birdkeepers in all embassies and big towns/cities. For fast info traveling and they also use the hawks for scouting over the lands for info. Opee please use this for the bird option.
>>273779Inb4 the birds get lazy and spent all their time in the spa
>>273770Then we teach wimmins to do other stuffs?
>>273722turn 9 end!Doctors took interest in the rat people's ways and customs. It seems they are a nervous and twitchy kind from birth, always ready to fight or flee whenever they're talked to. They mostly obey out of fear of their superiors. Their mind is no slower than humans, though, and they have good knowledge of chemistry and their own bodies. Their wizards wield dark magic since the dawn of time.Unless they are lying, it seems none of the rats in the captured towns have any scientific value.A coastal wall has been built, with manpower support from the southern allies. The quartermasters complained the Sun workers were a lazy bunch, and that it was more contagious than plague. The wall will be done in two turns and consumes a lot of resources and manpower.The rats only dared the smallest skirmishes and scouting operations this year, their courage dimmed by the presence of the Queen herself, residing in New Septent's new church.
>>273875>Two Turns to completeGuhhh, we haven't even got our rive yet.
>>273883We're sorry for the fact that we gave you sun shamans for the building. We shouldve specified which people we would send. We will give you the rice. Maybe install more spas in your land if you want. We're very sorry.
>>273875A network of messenger birds was established between embassies. Controlled birds bring letters wherever they need to faster than any man, and the receiving end can immediately answer to the bird, controlled by a classical shaman.This required a classical shaman to be sent to each embassy for contact, though, which is not pleasing the Queen's inquisition at all.The classical shamans persevered in their sun communions, but nothing has dawned upon them yet.A warlord traveled south in a journey of self-discovery after the horrible things the orcs had done to him and his family. When he seeked the wise councils of the Wise-Men of South, he was disgusted to find lusty lardasses dipping in boiling ponds all day. He went to the nearest temple of the sun, and in a dramatic tone, introduced himself to the more sane shamans. He expressed his disgust, said he was going home, and that if they wanted to send the fat men to his place, he'd make them real men.The shamans didn't really believe he'd manage to make anything out of those guys, but sent a troop of loafing shamans with him anyway. They'll come back next turn.A wall is being built north, on the seafront, with the help of the eastern Bowtie allies. The bowties feel a bit out of place in the evening at the bathhouses, how prude!
>>273940Goddamn, you can just imagine the look of disgusted disappointment on that warlord's face
>>273874>>273770I can agree to this, but I think to make the change gradual we can start with foreign women and their offspring to be slaves. Slowly replace a gap in the social ladder, and redefine who's significant in terms of where you're from (i.e. elfland women > foreign born women)
guys I think I'm gonna stop halfway through this updateall this coughing and wheezing makes me feel funnysee you later
>>273986Bye, get well soon
>>273984So, further develope our social heirarchy>>273986Noooo Opee! Feel better soon! ..... Come back later please....
>>273986Okay. See you later, Opee. Hope you get better soon.
>>273986get well soon opee you lesbian frog
>>273986> he doesn't post his turns all at onceno wonder this quest is full of trolls and manchildren, theres no order
>>274010We used to do like 2-3 turns a day at some points during The Tribal Era, but Opee has been sick and busy through the whole of this season.
>>274010>trolls and manchildrenwat
>>273940Tfw we're doing everything wrong. We need to get our shit together.
>>274010Hope you aren't referring to me? I have tried to come up with serious Ideas.
>>274098Further sun communion is needed. Cant be a quitter now. We should look into how to use our giant focusing lens for more things, like burning things from afar. Oh and send rice over to the bowties. Unless rice counts among the "massive amount of resources and manpower", then we send them knowledge pn how to grow rice, or general agriculture
>>274010Well, at least the turns for all teams that matter were posted.
>>274140Agreed but I don't want our lazyness becoming a problem for the bowties who wantedcto help us with the wall. That's pretty bad. We've send a classical shaman to their embassy. Maybe remove it from their country since the queen complained about it. We need to stay nice to the bowties.
>>274204yes. The embassy in the bowtieland should stay an old style embassy. We gotta recall the shaman from there.Unless their queen wants the whole thing gone. Then eh, such is life-
>>274218If it would help us remain on good terms we should totally so that. Bowties have always treated us right.
>>274189You so rightCoppers dont even matterWhich means the sea witch won't think anything of us which is cool. We can then just do nothing this whole game like the sun people.
>>274248Dont let the sun shamans sent there for training infect you with the lazy.
>>274279They'll either come back as hardworking men or completely broken. Lets hope its the former.
>>274289If they're broken at least we know they're a lost cause and can start the culling
>>274279Its fine.We behind on turns so yeah.It literally takes us a 48 hours to make a turn so we done
NYUHGHGHGHGHGHGHGHGHGHGHGHGHG Tree's win the game anyway.
>>274309>>274289well since its come to this, what are we gonna do about the inventions not spreading?
>>274301Finally back at a computer so I can actually focus on this more. We should really pull back our posessed eagle from the bowties. we can still use normal eagles for swift communication as this is also helpful for the bowties. our most focussed problem right now are the sun shamans. we've send some sun shamans towards the coppers but we'll still need to make the rest working again. we've tried things nice and that didn't work so maybe we should just go hard on them now.
>>277052To be fair if the shamans sent out to be trained come back disciplined then we can have them train the other lazy ones we have
>>277055yeah if that works we'll do that if the coppers are up to that.
>>277057Trial by wrestling, have the non lazy shamans wrestle the lazy ones into submission
>>277061you and your wrestling. we should try to merge the warriors and classicals into one group though. they could stand up against the lazy sun shamans.
>>277064Thing is, according to this >>269759>they could not force the self-indulging shamans and warriors out of the promised resort!The warriors have also gotten lazy it seems. The classical shamans have quite a bit of work on their hands. At this point maybe they should just have a magic duel.Or maybe commune with the sun, commune with it hard. Like have all the giant mirrors and lens inside the temple direct sunlight into one single classical shaman while the others gather around in mass prayer.
>>277067I like the communing with the sun plan. and maybe we should think of reforming the power stand in the realm someday.
>>277070Indeed, while the classicals deserve their place at the top, the lazy shamans and warriors haven't done much to keep their spots. If they don't shape up we'll need to give the common people more rights and better living standards while lowering theirs.
>>277072exactly I think a part of the warriors joined up with the classical shamans through the fact that they got access to the magic schools. maybe we should reform the magic schools too. because right now you can get into it if you've got enough money or are a warrior. maybe make it so that you can only finish your shaman training through there if you show results.
>>277067>Commune with it hard.
>>277076Also, we could make makeshift planes
>>277346how would we do that?
>>277364Mass possess a bunch of really strong birds and tie them to boxes that can hold a person
>>277375whoa that could be cool. we could also make hot air balloons with fire magic.
>>277383Unfortunately we haven't find out how to make balloons yet
>>277388aren't they just giant sheets tied to a little box that holds humans and the hot air from the fire keeps them afloat?
>>277391well yes, but can we produce those giant sheets yet.
>>277405we probably can, looking at the fact we have sailing boats. we probably know how to make them or import them from the bowties.
>>277411Ah of course, but first things first. Gotta pray some mo' and deal with the laziness. And recall birds from bowtieland. Also, maybe we could ask the rats wassup next turn, since we also has an embassy there.
>>277419yeah, first take the posessed birds away from the bowties. we'll just keep that old fashioned and use regular birds for swift messages. no peeping. then we'll use the giant glass chamber of sun and try to find a solution?
>>277434Yes, direct all light in a temple into one singular holy place for maximum praying
>>277444But of course, there's the world event, which could mean even more disaster
>>277445We'll see what the world event will bring us. it'll probably be posted tonight and we might have to adjust our ideas to it.
No update tonight. Opee is probably still sick. we've got to be patient guys.
>>277627>the world event is Opee getting sick

alright let's finish this
>>282774Welcome back, hope you're feeling better
Rolled 29, 35 = 64 (2d100)orc badlands invasion?attackers:troop quality(20) + technology(20) + war economy(-10) + attacking(-20) = +10defenders:troop quality(40) = +40
>>282774Sweet pic. Welcome back, Opee>>282804Oh dang, +40These would make great mercenaries.
>>282804basically this but now it's poor little copper with orcs behind him
>>282804Looks like its time to make a trump wall like the bowties did to solve their problems.
>>282817Trump was right all along
>>282820I feel like this is going to become our version of the rats since its looking like their going to be a pain to get rid of.
>>282817Walls solve all problems.>>282829It took us an eon to even push back.GL
>>282829Imagine: Hot ork abs. You could grind meat on them
>>282817and we'll make the orcs pay for it
>>282836Imagination's running wildLike orcs
>>282845Imagine the orks ravaging you as hard as how they ravage the lands
>>282856With those tusks going up your butthole
>>282858>>282856this is some steamy imagination guys almost reminds me of a certain rat picture
>>282804Engineers tried applying their new discovery to the fields by putting blades on them, with moderate success. A horse does the job faster and eats less coal (if at all). Also, there's been reports of lost limbs that may or may not be tied to the affair.Angry copper warlords decided to strike back at the pillaging hordes, and called everyone to the fray. They went with determination to fight beyond the borders, completely unaware of what lies in this barbaric land.After moderate successes against sparse tribes of greenskins, the army valiantly marched through a canyon. A foolish idea, as they were easily ambushed by a large warband! They managed to retreat before it was too late, but the losses were too great to pursue the war effort. Everyone went home to lick their wounds.There's been a rumor that the warlord of the coast has taken an habit whipping obese magicians for sport. Their wails can be heard at night, near the castle.
>>282866WHIPPING? that does not sound very good at all.
>>282872It could either be really terrible training, or a birth of a new sexual movement
>>282873imagine them getting whipped and they enjoy it a lot
>>282873They come back fitBut totally covered in leather and kelp rope suitsThey have lost their laziness, but their lust only grows stronger.
>>282877Oh, Princess here.Forgot to use my Trip.
>>282876With their sweaty fat rolls jiggling to the rythm of their wails>>282877Well, that would honor their ancestors since that's how opee depicted wrestlers back then
>>282877kelp rope suits?
>>282888Now invent oil so they can wrestle and glisten at the same time
>>282890Sunpeople already sweat enough for that
>>282866Guess he took "whip them into shape" literally
>>282866Alright, an idea for what we can do. We can start fortifying the lands that are frequently targeted by the orcs so they'll be less likely to succeed in raiding them.We also need to deal with the fact how good their troop quality is compared to us. I propose since the turn said we had horses is to begin training soldiers to use horses in battle to become horse archers as our tech since its never been done before in this world.
>>282917knowing our population they probably like it
>>282921You can probably pay them to leave.
>>282925We do appreciate ironic cases of taking a metaphor literally
>>282928They'll just come back looking for more. That and there multiple warbands so we cant do that as I would have to pay them all off. Besides, I'd rather fight them off than bribe them if I can help it.
>>282939unf >>282944we totally do
>>282949>Warcraft: Orcs and Coppers
>>282949Do we have heavy cavalry?
>>282959We have no calvalry at all, closest thing to a nation having a real calvalry is the trees and their boar cav.
>>282963Well heavy cavalry would suite our needs better than archers
>>282963but we have horses so why don't we just train those?
>>282966>>282965>>282963Just ask Opee if you have horses.they could have been using the horses as a point of reference in the turn post.
>>282866The elves are getting paranoid with all these new women running around free in their orderly country. They actively maintain an ent retinue of peacekeepers, ready to act at the first sign of trouble.The situation would have probably blown up long ago, if those measures weren't taken, and the elves are proud of themselves. The elven womens' only mean of resistance left is their refusal to procreate.The fleet is being rebuilt. However, the funds are lacking. The mercenaries stopped helping the elves, claiming their treasure is theirs alone.The war froze on the rat front. Rats have been kicked or eliminated out of the captured cities.turn 10 start!event delayed to next turn
>>282966That what I'm talking about for training calvalry.>>282965Think we should ask opee what type of horses we have? If we have the big european ones then we could do that. If we have the smaller ones then we would have to do archers.
>>282970well okay then
>>282969then we should get some kind of bonus or something since they are better than the best thing we have
So I guess we're done here for today(night(?))
>>282970What horses do we have?
>>282995except for the fact that we've all got to make our turns now.
>>283004Yes, but Opee wont do anything until tomorrow anyway, plus where is that anchor
>>282970Dr elf im CIA
>>283015Anyway, let's just decide what we're gonna do right now in advance.-Direct all light inside a temple (using its giant mirrors and lens ) into one single spot where a classical shaman will pray while other classical shamans gather a around in a circle that will also pray for maximum prayers-Recall magic birds and bird shamans from bowtieland and just keep communications there vintageThis good?
>>283033yeah I think that's the best thing to do for now. maybe add a communication part where we tell the bowties we'll give them a bunch of warding totems that they can use however they want as thanks for the help with the wall.
recap anchor post>>282996four legged ones
>>283033I don't think we all care too much about the shamans right now.Can we just have our rice sent over?
>>283038Dunno if their queen will accept any form of outside magic though>>283049Sure, if that's what the actual people of the bowties want>>283048IMAGINE
>>283048SURE IS A LOT OF IMAGINATION GOING ON
>>283049the queen didn't want the shamans there so we don't want any harm done to our relation. oh yeah and add the rice to the >>283033 recap. we can offer wards if the queen doesn't want them that's fine too.
>>283060We could make the taking back the birds into the communication action, ask the queen if we've insulted her with our magical birdies, if so then we'll take them back
>>283060I would think withdrawing a shaman could be an embassy option. I mean moving one guy isn't a full turn action worth of event.
>>283062yeah sure, it does sound like more of an embassy option. maybe use our second option for the birdcage/hot air balloon idea?
>>282996Lets do horse archers then because it'd be the least likely to fail and they historically have wrecked infantry forces much more powerfull than their armys before.
>>283062We might want to look into other options for comunications, like flags or something, or a system of beacons. if one needs the other, they can light the fire
>>283070Isn't Our second option sending rice knowledge to the bowties. Cuz when opee said communication I'm pretty sure it just means realying info to eachother and not doing stuff
>>283075aight that's fine with me too.
>>283084Also, should we communicate with other civs too? Get some info about what's going on their side of the continent. Like asking coppers and rats waddup
>>283052Skellie broWe gotta spend our action finishing the bro wall.Any ideas on something that could help us out with rat war?
>>283095yeah that would go into the communication part as well. it can never hurt to ask them how they're doing
>>283101Well, we did learn about necromancer rats, so we could use that to rally the Queen or her Inquisition to aid the war effort, tho that might escalate with a fullblown witchhunt for the rats, making it harder for them to join our kingdom
>>283103Right, so turn:-Direct all light inside a temple (using its giant mirrors and lens ) into one single spot where a classical shaman will pray while other classical shamans gather a around in a circle that will also pray for maximum prayers-Give bowtie rice and agriculture knowledge because we gotta make up for their wallbuilding and our laziness somehowCommunication:-Apologise to bowtie queen for putting magical bird and magical bird shaman in her land. We'll call 'em back if she wants to-Ask coppers and rats wassup
>>283072those armies had formations and were heavy infantry The horse archer meme won't work on chaotic barbaric hordes
>>283120Not a meme if worked, lets just wait for the other coppers to come and say their own suggestions and do their votes.
>>283131Retards repeat it like a rhetoric on here so it may as well be a memeA army without a formation with men in random spaces and not close together won't be taken down by archers
>>283147Now understand I'm voting for it like your voting for your thing, hence why I said we wait for the rest of the coppers to come vote and say their own ideas. Once everyone votes we know whats being used for our turn and were done.
>>283111Yeah but that would be an action, and we gotta action out building a wall.So that means we have to do something with tech.
>>283112>-Direct all light inside a temple (using its giant mirrors and lens ) into one single spot where a classical shaman will pray while other classical shamans gather a around in a circle that will also pray for maximum prayersSo we will burn them ?
>>283179Just like The Ancestors did in the old days.
>>283179The burning means it's working
>>283111Oh, oh!What if we put our looms to work and researched standardized uniforms and banners to make better army management?
>>283201could you make us one
>>283175Maybe use our tech to improve our doctors or chemisist? maybe try discover vacines or apply our chemical knowledge to improve medicine? Or we might learn cartogrophy to better scout the ratlands? We could begin a physics club to complete our scholars set?
>>283201That might not work since our forces are still just regional forces under the feudal system, so each lord would have them carry their banners instead of a central bowtie one, i think? For it to work we might need to create a proffecional central army in service of the state and the queen, but that might not sit well with the feudal lords. Im just rambling tho i dont really know any of this
>>283207Well you'd need to come ask us to, and military organization is important to efficient combat, so I'm not sure if we're on good enough terms to be trading war bonuses like that.>>283222Well The Queen already has her skeletons, and our current system works as is. I think with us being all feudal right now that having individual regiment designs would help organize attacks immensely. Right now I assume warriors all wear the same bowties as is!
>>283229We could also use our tech to develop anti magic countermeasures to improve our inquisition and or strenghten our troops when they will eventually have to face the rat necromancers?
>>283237That can be good too, though I do fear that The Queen might try and shut it down. Might be better to try all that when the war is over.If we're the nation that doesn't rely on magic, we never have to hope it doesn't fail.
>>283251Right, than i agree that the unified uniforms are the best option for now.
>>283260Awesome! I'll write up our turn report then.Do remember the centralized military idea though, I like it!
>>283048Action: Finish The Sun Wall with The Sun Bros down south.Tech: Put those looms to work making standardized regiment uniforms and banners for better military organization.
Ok, cool I think we can expand on mercenaries. Maybe tax them for their loot andencourage them to loot outside? (Ratlands, etc.) Also something something slave currency
>>283322You could make rats a slave currency on the same level as women to incite people to raid rat lands and abduct new slaves to get richer.
>>283334Actually that would incite mercs to raid rat lands too since it makes rats essentially loot.
>>283399Bretty good idea senpai, who needs to invade with state army when mercs can do it?
>>283614And even better when Mercs do it on their own volition instead of needing to get paid by the state at all.The thing about it is that they don't necessarily need to be conquering land as is, just hosting small raids and kidnappings that will both boost the slave population of The Tree Nation once slaves start being sold off to The State, and cause the northern front of The Rat Lands to weaken due to constant assault and fear.
>>283614Oh yeahAnd if you start a program to buy slaves freely to the state, you could have The Elven Council owning an army of slaves themselves instead of having the slave population distributed among private ownership.This makes it to where you can direct the use of slaves as a viable force in building, farming, or even military if you start raising their children as warriors from birth.If all goes well by a short while The State would be able to keep watch of a load of war prisoners, rowdy daughters, or rebellious women directly instead of entrusting that the father of a household could upkeep his slaves. This is a great work around for avoiding having to give rights to women, but at the same time taking more power out of the hands of the slave class, and better putting them to use on something better. For example maybe you can have your slave army all crafting boats. You'll be amazed how much an army of slaves can get done.I really like slave management.
>>283322I dont know dude, having both slaves and an already upset population of women together sounds a little too dangerous, they might rise up together and rebel. Though the ents might be able to overpower them its still a gamble. We could probably make it work on a small scale though, as long as we dont make a big industry out of it. As for taxing the mercinaries, instead of directly taxing their loot, we can tax them through the services we provide, like providing booze, housing, and weapons. This way they don't outright hate us since we arent directly taking from their loot.
>>283757It would be hard to count and measure how much loot a merc party brings back anyway if they're all action on their own incentives. You could build a bunch of inns, taverns, and markets top sell loot at on The Rat Boarder if you wanted them to hang around there while you soaked up their beer money just as easily.
>>283778acting*to*God, my typing.
>>283757No bro, our goal isn't to have two subjugated groups its to replace one group (women) with another (slaves), and maybe restricting slaves to foreigners aka rats, orcs, etc. So with slave currency we will no longer need to use women as currency, see what I mean? Then no women riots, only slave riots, and those are more manageable I think.
>>284138I second this, we need wimmin to procreate and if we give the (almost) equality, then they shoudl be happy, we can add them into the same category as Elves and Tree Men's while slaves are left in the dirt.
>>284138Sooo Tech: Learn MagicAction: Make women equal to men and make slaves the new currency, fix diplomatic relations with women.
>>284685Making women equal would be a cultural action, because you have to change a current cultural trait to do it.
>>284663>>284138I'm a little worried this isn't going to work out. Having women and men be equal in such a short time frame after generations of inequality would undoubtedly have a lot of detractors amongst the men and male elves and could cause strain between the women who had to work for their rights and the ones who did nothing. We have to ease them into equality, so that no one gets too mad. Having the orange maidens be free after the campaign and giving rights to the secret police was a step in the right direction; we should focus on giving women rights through deeds rather than just flat out handing it to them. Eventually enough women would have earned their rights this way they will functionally be free. Of course the slaves won't get this option, make them stuck on the bottom of society.
>>284854You could make them spend a few years in military service to gain their rights.That way all of the rowdy and freedom loving ones will already be focusing their efforts fighting for The Council instead of fighting for revolution.This also allows those who are docile and content with being a lower citizen to just remain a lower citizen.
copperswe need a decisionheavy cavalry or archers cavalry against the orcs look at the arguments above
>>285524however heavy our cavalry is I don't think It'll match up to orcs so I go for archerswe can also try improving our magic insteadwhich might work more against orcs
>>285580Why dont you guys sue your cars against them. It's not like the things have an off switch
>>285647just ram the cars into the orcs, add some of those new blades on them and you've got a murdering machine
>>285652yeah, I was gonna suggeest steam cavalry car, maybe some loaded with dynamite but before we do that we're gonna have to invest in mining
>>285683But your cars don't even go fast.That negated half the reason anyone would even be cavalry.You should probably think of it more like tanks or something and use your farming blades to chop up enemies.
>>286050Their cart cant even turn yet. The steam engine probably wont be able to handle the weight also so it would move at a snails pace or not at all.
>>286057Forgot my Trip again.Yeah that's probably right too.I only wonder how they're using them for farming if they can't turn.
>>286060Most likely thing was the people pulled on the sides using ropes to turn it but it wouldn't be as good as a proper turning wheel. Now that I think of it, I know about animal drawn plows. Was there a animal dragged harvester of sorts back then?
>>286066Not really.The thing about harvesting grain is that it likes to lay down when you smack it, so people had to cut it real low to the ground, and nobody truly had the technical know how to develop a kind of clockwork machine that could do anything like that.That, and just using a farming scythe is so much easier.
>>286073You'd think the harvester would at least help somewhat then instead of just sort of being a thing we made thats just their being not usefull. Oh well, I want to see how the shamans turn out this turn from the warlords "training".
>>286091Well mechanized farming wasn't good until The Industrial era and the invention of liquid fuel tractors. The thing about steam is that it's bulky, hard to control, requires fire to function, and has a habit of exploding. These are all pretty massive downsides to trying to farm, especially the fire bit.The reason only Trains became useful in steam-powered movement is because you don't need to steer hose. It is quite literally what you have now, just on rails.Right now though it seems as if the bst way you have of turning your steam tractors is to put a horse in front of it and pull it, which is kind of redundant as you've now just made a spinny plow.
>>286136Opee did say the engines right now are pretty much inferior to their animals
>>286136We didn't make a spinny plow like you're saying, it was intended to harvest any crops it could thus less goes to waste if your late or have alot of land and you cant get it all fast enough. Its obviously strong enough to harvest stuff to since there were reports of lost limbs.
>>286173Well if by any crop you mean wheat then yeah.
>>286173Also more goes to waste when harvesting with a steam harvester, because I don't think it's really any faster than humans collecting it themselves, and it also requires coal or other burnables to operate.
So since we cant take the making women equal move as an action since that is a culture thing, should we go with:Culture: Women who serve as shock troops and prove themselves in the heat of battle are regarded as men if they survive 3 years of combat.Action: Entice Mercinaries to the border of the ratlands with services (i.e. Taverns, Inns weapons shops) while recouping some loot money by charging them for the services.
>>286773Sounds good, let's just hope our Ent police stay active :D
>>287102Well they're trees! They probably never sleep.
>>287120They don't sleep, but I mean, just like the boats, there could always be "an accident"
>>287124what if you use ents to make sentient boats?
>>286773> intentionally arming women Good intention, bad idea, try again
>>287181Allow women to elect several representative officials who serve as members of the council
>>287181It'll happen eventually, man. You'll never have women not-bitching at you until you make them people somehow. GL with the revolts otherwise.
>>287181well the whole idea is that they be constantly surrounded by men who are similarly armed or even better armed than they are so they cant step out of line without someone knowing about it, much like how we handled the maidens. Of course when they get their rights they are still going to get speid upon by our secret police though.
>>287197> You'll never have women not-bitching at you until you make them people somehow. Yes, I agree, but arming women is going a step far I think. Didn't we JUST say that we had to make gradual change? Sudden women warriors is NOT gradual.> GL with the revolts otherwise.We have fuckn police and spy forces, I think we can handle revolts.>>287193I like this>>287426They are already constantly surrounded by men. May I remind you tree culture does not allow us to give women men roles? If we want them on our level, it needs to be separate but equal, otherwise men are going to rage. I would propose giving them magic emphasis, but not combative magic. Also your conditions for women warriors will require some to die in battle, reducing population power. Women need to know they are important, but not the same as men. As we fill in slave roles with enslaved rats, this will give women more power as they won't be property, at least later on they won't. Its a win-win.
>>287837make the turn for us, attach to the anchor post
>>287837Didnt we already try to do something like this with make some of them priestesses? And we have the popilation to allow some of the women to fight. But in the end this is just baseless speculation, we need to figure out what women want so we can tailor something around that. Electing a woman representative would allow us to do just that, so I agree that we should give a woman a seat on the council, we just need to keep the secret police a secret from her too.So how about:Culture: Women can elect a representitive to serve on the council.Action: Entice Mercinaries to the border of the ratlands with services (i.e. Taverns, Inns weapons shops) while recouping some loot money by charging them for the services.
If no one objects>>288783>>283048

>>290276I can agree to this.
>>293723mfwOk, well whatever, if we don't get a new post, then there's no point in playing bois. No new bread, then I'm dead.
>>293862He doesn't post on wednesday dudeHe'll be here in like 5 hours
Opee confirmed for drawing a thing tonightBut no thread
I feel like fleshing things out, so I'll draw some representative families in each nation tonight.
>>294487Now the other nations will have a face to their nation instead of only just the bowties and their queen having a repeating leader.
>>294487that sounds pretty cool!
the firstborns are the descendants of the Queen's only husband, her first lover. Legend tells he was a powerful wizard and handsome man.The Queen has historically privilegied her firstborns, which gave them much power over the other royal families. However, the Queen has been quite disinterested in their fate in this generation.Today, their military power is quite weak, however, their honor and renown are still great, and they are the national trend-setters.
Benos is a veteran mercenary. He has been praised by his peers for his valiance in combat while fighting in the strange lands overseas, and has made a good fortune he intends to keep. He only has one son, but he already shows promise with a bow!
the new lord of the goldheart clan is very young. Before he was old enough to care about such things, his father and brother went to war with the Maiden, like his mother, against the bad warlords of the south.But they were cruelly betrayed by the northern engineers. They lost, they were executed, and their lands were taken. Now, the little lord lives with his sister in their aunt's castle on the island, petitioning for help getting their own lands back. But the Maiden turn deaf whenever they ask for concrete military support.
>>295359Gets me every time
the Simsuns are a model family in the sun-blessed lands. The father is a proud shaman, that even goes to the temple sometimes. Though he mostly dips all day.The mother is a housewife, doing massages on sundays, which she finds quite a fullfilling task.The daughter plans on being the first woman shaman, or at least be a master mage. She feels surrounded by fools and loves school.The son doesn't go to school that much, peeking at the women's bath and throwing rocks at the dipping fatties is a lot more entertaining.I'll be back soon for something more interesting, this was just a little fun stuff I wanted to do to keep you waiting
>>295371Make a new thread OPWe on page 9
>>295375I'm done for today
>>295371noice>>295375New thread will come when Opee comes back
>>295376You dont have to post turns Just I dont want this to go into archives or else no more shitposts
>>295371what you mean woman can't become shamans? disgrace we should let them become shamans asap. but maybe change the way you can become a shaman first.
>>295382You're just looking for excuses to have naked ladies aren't cha
>>295371Suns get the best family of us all, mainly because of that reference.
>>295383maybe that's part of the reason. but also I'd like to think women are as powerful as men in our realm
Anyone oppose the notion of assassins killing the goldstei.. goldheartsWe need to finish the job or he'll get dragons and invade westeross
>>295388I always thought having anybody who can use magic well becoming a shaman meant...well, anybody can become a shaman, ladies or men.
>>295392Weren't there women shamans on the island? Or was it just women wrestlers?
>>295393It wasn't addressed
>>295392Yeah I thought that too, So that's why I want to change it!
>>295398Yes, maybe having female shamans means we'll have more shamans that are less lazy.Or not.
>>295406we can always gamble on it
>>295414That's how we've been doing things any way, try random stuff out until something works
>>295418and we're still doing fine somehow
>>295425sun wills it
>>295434sun is love, sun is life
>>295359Compared to everyone else our nation is just filled with tragedy like the orcs destroying familys and the picture shown. Meanwhile just south of us is vacation paradise. I like the coppers like this though, it's more interesting than eternal peace.
>>290276>>283048Linking the turn because no ones done it yet.
