Welcome to Uruk-hai quest! This is an idea I've been working on for a few months and decided to give it a shot. This is my first quest so don't fuck me too hard. This is set 150 years after the 4th Age began. Orcs still roam the country sides but have been forced into hiding by the now very strong kingdoms of man. We'll be using a D20 system and only the first three rolls will be counted.Also sorry for any spelling or grammatical mistakes.
Rage is the first thing you feel as you awaken. The membrane around quivers one last time before you rip yourself out of it you slide onto the floor covered in foul smelling fluids. You struggle to breath for a few moments, the pleasant smelling air only makes you angrier. You wipe the fluids from your eyes finding yourself in a hole in the ground somewhere in the forest. Slime races down your body and you feel the warmth of the air on your body. Defiantly don't want this shit to dry. You take a moment to regain composure and see a puddle on the ground. You take handfuls of the water and start cleaning yourself of the slime. After you're done you hear a twig snap and see an Orc step by the hole. He smiles for a moment before yelling, "We got anotha one ere' boss! And e' looks mad!"Soon after a larger Orc appears and stops at the edge of the pit. He stares at you for a few seconds before he yells, "Well you gettin' up ere' or do I ave' to make you!" What a cunt.What do you do?>keep cleaning >climb up>curse him out
You ignore the lesser scum and continue cleaning yourself. Even for an Uruk this smells fucking awful. "Are you deaf or do you just wanna die?"By Morgoth you smell bad.You spot the large orc making his down the pit he starts yelling at you now, "I'll you to da' Wargs if you keep ignorin' me!"Oh god he smells worse. He finally sulks up to you and gives you a swift kick in the shin. "GET MOVIN' YOU LAZY TARK!"The orc atop the pit says, "Boss I tink that's an Uruk youz' betta be careful...". The larger orc only snarls in response. watdo?>attack the cunt (d20)>climb the pit
Rolled 3 (1d20)>>1225573Decapitate.We're not taking anymore shit than we already have on us.
Rolled 5 (1d20)>>1225573lift him up by the neck and snap it.
Rolled 11 (1d20)>>1225573>attack the cunt (d20)Punch his ribs.
This cur has been babbling enough. You outstretch your hand and attempt to pick the orc up by the neck attempting to rip it off or snap his neck, but as soon as you grab him he quickly overpowers you. "Nice try groundling!" he says as he pushes you aside and kicks you to your knees."Oi, Uglash go get Rags and Finch! We gotz ourselves a fighter ere'!"The smaller orc quickly runs away and starts calling for help. Soon after two goblins show up."Get this Tark outta ere!" the larger orc says. With that he starts climbing out of the pit. The two goblins make their way down and point their spears at you."Come on lad don't make this...fun..."With that they escort you out of the pit and you make your way down a small dirt path to a forest clearing populated with orc huts and several patches of malnourished cattle. The two goblins lead you to large hut and poke you into it. The large orc is standing next to a ramshackle throne with a large Black Uruk sitting on its seat. "This is the trouble maker I'z was talkins' about boss."The Uruk stares you down for a few moments before saying."If e' wants to fight let em fight." He then mumbles to the large orc. The large orc smiles and then throws a shitty metal helm your way and simply says "Get to tha' barracks, scum. Youz' got some raidin' to do."Seeing no other option you agree.When you arrive at the barracks you're greeted by the two goblins yet again and they lead you inside where upon which you see a large selection of shitty weapons and armor.You decide to pick...>Orc Sword and Full Plate Armor (+ 2 to armor and +1 to attack. Take extra attrition damage)>Crossbow and Leather Armor (+2 to tracking and dodging rolls. -2 melee rolls)>Orc Cleaver and loincloth (+1 to dodging and +2 for attack rolls. Take extra missile fire damage)>Ork Pike (+3 against calvery, +1 defense. Very Slow)>Orc Shield and Spear (+1 defense, +2 missile block rolls. -2 fast opponents)What weapon you pick will also affect your class and name in the future.
I'll keep going for another hour or two but then I gotta pass out.
>>1225609Can we mix up different armor/weapon combinations?
>>1225610I don't see why not. Also sorry for forgetting the armor on the Pike and Spear. Pike is heavy leather and Spear is leather.
>>1225611What bonuses do we get if we>Spear and Leather Armoror>Sword and Leather ArmorAlso, would it be possible to dual wield swords? It would offer us more in the way of defense while allowing us to turn to offense if need be,
>>1225613>best weaponGet out of here.
>>1225612>Spear and Leather Armor+2 defense, +1 dodge.>Sword and Leather Armor+2 agility, +1 attack rolls

>>1225617That's quite a load, but I chu>Full plate, war axe and a crossbow+2 armor, + 2 attack. Take HEAVY attrition damage, also you won't a ton of space to put shit in. You're raiding not selling weapons

>>1225624Makes you faster
I'll be making a pastebin or google doc SO DO NOT FRET
>>1225624I prefer the heavy tank style but you have a point.
>>1225624Trade the sword for a heavy cleaver and you've got yourself a deal.I'm guessing +2 attack, +1 agi?
>>1225628>>1225629Sounds fine to me.
So two for Cleaver and Leather Armor
Anymore votes because if not I'm closing this and we're gunna berserk it upTen more minutes to vote
You take up arms. An Orc Cleaver and Leather Armor, while shitty it'll do.>bloodlust ability unlocked, can use once every thread when used it increases attack, agility, and dodge to +5"Oi, you bout done in dere' yet?" You emerge from the armory and startle the two goblins. This amuses you, but before you can say anything a horn is blown. The goblins motion for you to follow. They lead you down a small dirt path that winds between the many huts. You arrive to what looks to be a training area. There the large orc from the pit is pacing back in forth in front of 25 other Orcs. "You're late! Get in line maggot." He points towards a small group of goblins, Finch and Rags are there. "Alroight listen up you bunch of day lilies! Tha' scouts found us a nice little village just a few days from ere'! We're gunns go take every thing theys' got!." He points towards you small group of 5. "Youz' gunna take river duty and try and catch what ever they-" he gestures to the large group of Orcs, "-don't catch."With that he yells a few rude words and tells you to move on it. You're 2 days from the village. Gunna end it here, friends. Bout to pass out. I'll pick this back up 3:00PM PST or a little bit later. Have a good one.
>>1225649You too, OP. Thank you for your work.

>>1225649This is looking fun to me. Please continue when you can
For the past few days the only thing keeping you moving is the piss water they call Grog. Tastes good. You've entered the Westfold and are encroaching on a small village by a river. You've been assigned to kill or capture anyone who try's to escape. You've broken off the main group and you're now traveling with Rags and Finch along with the other two nameless fuckfaces called the rest of your "squad". You arrive at the river bank and see a light on the other side. A campfire with two children and a man, the children seem to be talking around the fire, but the man is fishing on the riverbank. They have yet to see you.>give them a good spook (alerts the town early, d20)>try and find a way across >swim across (d20)
>>1226586>try and find a way across

Rolled 9 (1d20)>>1226641
Rolled 4 (1d20)>>1226641Why didn't we just eat then? Probably taste better than grog, and they already started a fire!
>>1226758WE AIN'T HAD NTOHIN' BUT MAGGOTY BREAD FOR THREE STINKIN' DAYS
>>1226842Let's eat Rags or Finch or the two other nameless fuck-faces they call them a squad-us withhold. They're probably more chewy than the children anyway. Just not as clean...but then again we've been drinking Grog so...let's do it.Let them get into the water before us so that they're stilted, impassive, and unable to stop the swing of our cleaver that aim for their necks
>>1227139You sure you wanna eat the two people that don't have a strong opinion about you yet?
>>1227470>strong opinionMeaning they don't think we're a threat? Because that helps us
Rolled 19 (1d20)>>1227139I veto thisAnd roll for swim.
>>1227139Don't know why you'd want to eat orc flesh when man flesh is the superior choice
>>1227668It was a joke lolYeah, swim.
You motion to your group to follow as you silently dip yourself in the water. To your surprise the water only goes up to your chest in the deepest parts and you managed to reach the other side of the bank without being seen or heard. You hear the children making fun of each other. The dad comes back with a large fish a few minutes after and gets to work de-boning it. While he does so he starts telling the children a story of orcs and the westfold in the olden days. Something about a white wizard, tree people. and a battle of a fortress. >RIP AND TEAR (d20+2)>keep listening to their conversation>CHARGE THEM (d20 +1)>write in
>>1227736I can't play this. I'm too much of a moralfag. But I'll be lurking, OP.
>>1227736Sneak up on them, cut down the man and make off with the children to eat later
>>1227736I'd say listen, so the MC realizes the white wizard was his creator. then we can possibly go on a pilgrimage to the tower of orthanc, to get gear and stuff
So we got a vote for sneaking up on them (also when you suggest doing something like that roll a d20) and a listen.

Rolled 14 (1d20)>>1227736RIP AND TEAR
You order your squad to surround the camp you sneak around to where the father is. Only one though crosses your mind. RIP. AND. T E A R. You charge at the man catching him off guard while your goblin bros secure the children. You bring your cleaver down on the man, he only manages to produce a look of fear in his eyes before you end him. The goblins try and keep the children guarded with threats of stabbings and other...nasty things.The river has been secured and the assault is ready to begin.You bind the two children, then a horn blows and the screaming begins. "I tink this be our queue boss!" Boss. You like the sound of that name. And so do these humans coming down to the bank.>let them pass>CHARGE (d20 +2)>write in

>did somebody say blood for the blood god?These peasants don't even notice the Uruk charging at you before it's too late.You bring your Cleaver down on ones neck causing blood to splurt in the immediate area around you. You then greet your elbow to an elderly woman's face before you crash your foot down on her face killing her. This feels good. REALLY GOOD. No longer able to sate your bloodlust you charge into the burning hamlet. The Orcs have all but killed most of the villagers except for those horsemen coming over the hill...>a party of riders of rohan spotted the burning village and are coming to reinforce>5 riders >6 orks (including you)>stand your ground >GTFO>call for aid>write in?

Rolled 10 (1d20)
One more roll for who ever wants to use hostages
Rolled 9 (1d20)>>1228602
>>1228602I don't want to use hostages, I think it's stupid to rely on human compasion to survive. Maybe it works because those idiots aren't used to war but relying on a solid wagon fortress seems a lot more reliable to me.
>>1228612of course it's more reliable but hostages are quicker just my 2 cents
>>1228612Fine. Then hurl the children at the riders. It'll stop them, likely even smack two off, one for each kid. And if the horses fall, they'll get in the way of the horse near.
>>1228612of course it's more reliable but hostages are quicker just my 2 cents..
>>1228526>did somebody say blood for the blood god?Dats cleerly a roight an' proppa' WAAAAGH, you spiky git.
You order your goblins to fetch the children. You also order the orcs to start tossing barrels and what ever could stop calvery into the dirt street. As the goblins arrive with the children the riders start to slow their pace. They stop at the other end of the dirt road. You take one of the children and step forward, you're about to say your first words. "Alroight listen to me scum...if you take anotha' step forward my boyz' and I are gunna start urtin' these ere' kids of urz'." The riders look worried but take a few more steps towards you. These motherfuckers. You snatch a sword from a near by orc and start cutting into the child, if it wasn't for gag you would of ripped this flesh burdens tongue out for the noise alone. The riders look appalled and take a few steps back. "What is it you want Orc?" one of the riders say. "If youz' let us leaves then we's don't kill dese ere' kids ya see." They converse for a moment before agreeing to your terms. You holler for the remaining orcs to hurry up and take what they can. After a long stare down an orc announces they're ready to go. As promised you shove one of the children towards the riders. "Cough up the other one, orc." You simply laugh at this, "We'z keepin' this one fer...insurance." One of them raises their bow, "You fiend!-" you raise the knife towards the child's throat and the rider lowers his weapon. You join with the other>RAID SUCCESSFUL >you carry off 3 stocks of bread, 2 stocks of meat, and 7 corpses along with various gardening tools and weapons >also acquired a human childThe long trek back to base begins. I'll be taking a quick brake. Be back in around an hour or so
>>1228663>acquired human childecool, lets eat it or give them to the leaders for brownie points
>>1228680Lets raise it to be our cock-sleeve, and fuck any of the corpses that look pretty enough.Or try and random the kid?
>>1228663"I am Uruk-hai"How dare theycompare us to orks
>>1228696It's been a long time since Uruk-hai have been a thing so they just thought you were a really big orc
I would also like to point out the orc "village" has its own spawning pits...however they're very slow at creating fellow orcs...
>>1228700doesn't make it any less offensive, now does it?>>1228704are you implying that we need to?
>>1228723Depends on what you think I'm implying ;)
Finally, a quest people can't turn the mc into a good guy.
>>1228684nah eat or killlittle good can come from it
>>1228735>little good can come from itNot so much about how useful it is, just if we want it or not
>>1228728oh you know, you know looking at the uruk origin, people might get ideas.
>>1228663Stick the bread up your arse to stop it going mouldy and cut thumbs off the corpses to for butt plugs to stop oxidation.
>>1228737This, also I made up a fanfic headcannon story in my head already how it will go.
When you arrive back at the encampment you show your spoils of war to the large orc. He takes a look at the human child in the back "Wot's that thing?" you simply reply "Slave or food." he growls before sulking back into the chieftains hut. You find a rock and start digging into some of the human meat you worked so hard for. You don't get to enjoy it long before Rags sulks up and says "The boyz' gave you a name..." you give an inquisitive grunt in response.What have "the boyz" named you?
"They've started callin' youz' Kurr'z." It has a ring to it. "A-also the Boss wants to see ya'." You sigh and toss the human meat to Rags. You arrive at the chieftain building and walk inside. You see several orcs take piles of scrape metal to the forge. The Black Uruk turns to face you, his mere presence exudes malice and hate. "I be hearin' rumors youz' be an uruk." You stare at him blankly. "Well Iz' been hiden's it." He snarls before unsheathing his massive Uruk scimitar kicks the large orc to the ground. The large orc turns to face his master. "Whot use do Iz' have for a morgol rat when I can ave' em'." He points towards you. "Youz' going ta' fight und' whoeva' wins get's ta be my be my second!" The large orc scrambles to his feet and draws his sword. You do that same. IT'S GO TIME!>charge the cunt (d20 +1)>dice and slice (d20 +2)>write in? Also please roll when making a decision

>>1228888I don't his bonuses matter anymore. Writing
You take up arms working yourself into a frenzy. THIS CUNT HAS IT COMING. You let out a bloodcurdling roar. A circle of orcs surround the two of you. He goes in for a slash before you backhand him to the ground breaking his jaw. He scrambles back up only to punch back down again. You throw your cleaver to the floor, you grab him by the neck and start to slowly pull. He screams for a brief moment before you rip his head off spine and all. A torrent of blood erupts from his gaping neck stump and his body falls to the floor. The Warchief simply laughs and takes the orcs head from your hands. He tells the orcs around you to take the body, you're having a feast tonight.
I would like to point out he rolled a nat 1
>>1228903Holy damn. So much for slice and dice. That's pretty epic.>>1228906Wasted Bloodlust, then. Eh, still epic.
I'm gunna end it here. We'll start back up in the morning. I'll answer any questions you currently have

>>1228920Well hopefully make the Remnants of Isengurd and wage war on the world of men.

>>1229132No one suggested it.
This so called feast is nothing more than piles of food and corpses scattered on piles on the ground. Just the way you like it! It also just now occurs to you that you never knew the large orcs name, bah doesn't matter now his current name is stumpy the main course. You ponder on what's happened in the very short time you've been alive, you raided a hamlet and then tore off the head of the second in command. huh.The boss has just finished his third keg of grog and the gobbos are happy sulking off to distant corners, and the orcs are just being orcs, fighting and drinking to their hearts content.

You take a look at the Chief. He's fucking drunk off his rocker. Power will be yours. You grab your cleaver walking towards the drunken buffoon. You raise your cleaver and slam it down, but he moves out of the way and you cleave some poor gobl-OH GOD IT'S RAGS! He makes a whimpering gurgle sound before collapsing to the ground dead. The chief however is unaware. You got lucky...this time.>eat flesh>drink until your liver explodes >try and get the chief again (d20 +2)>write in

Time to avenge a goblin you barely even knew! You charge the Chief, he has no time to register what's happening before you plant your cleaver firmly in his back, but he doesn't fall...instead he turns around and looks at you. "Whot do you want?". He didn't even notice the attack. Is this a blessing or a curse, either way grog just saved your life or ended it. He snorts and walks away. The orcs around you are stunned at what they just witnessed. You follow to Chief to his hut where he brought another keg with him. He sits down in his throne only to push the cleaver deeper into his back. He still doesn't notice and digs into another keg.

>>1230637or could of cut an artery and died while he sat down
The chief see's you walk into the hut. "Good urk' with Skullbasha' back den. You sure ave' him a whoopin'. Har har har." Oh how ironic. You rush the Chief and shove him into his throne cutting the cleaver deeper into his back, you then throw him to the ground, pull the cleaver out and bring it down severing an arm. He screams in pain and goes to punch you. It lands, but is way to weak. You kick him pack down to the floor and hop atop of him. You toss your cleaver aside and shove your hand into his gut. It does nothing, but make him howl in pain until you break the skin and start funneling his organs into your own mouth, devouring the uruk alive. He gives one final gurgle before slumping back dead. Nearby orcs rush into the hut and see utter carnage. They back up slightly before they call for more orcs. The entire tribe now surrounds you. They raise their fists and scream. "ALL 'AIL CHIEF KURR'Z DA MAD URUK!" You get on your feet basking in the joy of your victory. You're boss now and no one can say otherwise. What are your new commandments Chief Kurr'z?>massive vote and write in. give me your best idea's and VOTE VOTE VOTE
>>1230672Shit dude he pushed the blade FURTHER into himself. You think some bleed damage is going to hurt him?
>>1230686Alright, send a scout force to find us a suitable base, fortified. Train up our troops to be elite, where even the smarmiest grunt can handle two or three men. Have us go on the front lines and raid some villages, AWAY from any Rohan patrols. Do so silently, leave none alive eat everything loot and burn scorch the fucking earth. Get some evil men to join us too, the whole "fight for Rhun" thing. Amass more Uruk, Orcs, Goblins, any and all evil things, then set them in our hopefully newly found camp.The rest I'm still planning.
>>1230686We shall burn the world of me, we shall turn their fields to ash, we shall pile their bodies high enough to be our own tower! Feast upon the weak, soon our time shall come, no more sulking in the shadows, no more! Now is the time for blood!I also suggest we take the old chiefs Armour....maybe use his bones to make some charms for ourselves...maybe cut a new tribe symbol onto our flesh? A mark all shall have...

The village consists of >7 orc housing huts>lvl 1 forge and armoury>small pastures >small logging hut>lvl 2 chieftains hut (>lvl 1 orc and goblin pits (can spawn 5 orcs and 10 goblins every week. also has the chance to spawn an uruk during spawning)>no defenses >2 small storage hutsYour forces are>28 orcs>46 goblins>2 uruksSupplies >4 stocks of scrap metal >6 stocks of grog >3 stocks of bread (fresh and maggoty)>5 stocks of meat (human/orc corpses included) A single stock is a crate of what ever supply (i thought the name sounded cool)
>>1230762...he's long dead bud, maybe we could some day reclaim the tower but thats a long way off...maybe a raid though for artifacts or something. who knows
The tower of Orthanc is guarded by the ents per the lore. So you'll need lots of orcs and fire...tons of fire.
learn about the past (third age) from some slimy git, then we can move on to learning about our creator saroman
>>1230762ESPECIALLY this. All hail the Sons of Saruman.>>1230771>Upgrade the forge, Orc Pits, pastures and storage housesWeapons, Men, Food to feed the men, and a place to store it.>Go raiding for suppliesNamely for metal and meat
I'll give you all an hour to make a battleplan. I'll be back soon, I'm fucking starving
>>1230771>Kurr, orcs, and Uruks go raid a village>Goblins work on building defenses and upgrading forge/armoury
send out gobos to find fellow chieftains establish communication also raid wildmen easier then horse fags
>>1230807But wildmen hate horse fags. We could totally get them to work for us, both as a military force and in the pastures.Also,>Upgrade Pits, Forge, Pastures and Defenses>Then go raiding.The White Hand of Saruman shall rise again
>>1230819thats true but I was going for a more Genghis khan route forcefully consolidate then strike but if we can get them on side without blood shed that would also work
>>1230819Theres a good point...armored Warg cavalry anyone?...We also need to find a nice ruin too settle
How about we capture the craftsmen, and force them to work in the forge under threat of death.If they refuse... well, we could always eat more meat.
>>1230844When we raid, that is.
>>1230844What stops them from just making shitty quality weapons? I doubt orcs would know the difference.
>>1230843That too. It makes sense Wargs > Horses, even without riders. Unless the Horse is like, magical, they don't stand a chance against a super hyena.>>1230848This too. Another reason we'd need wildmen, they forge better shit when they cooperate.
>>1230844sounds good I'm just worried about cavalry if we get caught in the plains were fucked unless we use a pike and crossbow army or look into wargs
>>1230848Offer them booze and women, breed like cattle. It'd be in their best interest to help us acquire more women.
>>1230771First we need to unify other orc tribes in the area. Honestly, our best move is to find a goblin lair in the mountains and make that our base of operations for the time being. We can expand underground and get the raw materials and (goblin) workforce we need to upgrade our weaponry, all the while recruiting whatever other monsters we can find and hardening our armies.
We only have like 30 orcs, if we attract any attention (ie the village we just destroyed after a standoff with riders who saw we were orcs and the direction we headed), we will just be crushed immediately. We should move to the foothills of the mountains, be subtle, and bide our time.
>>1230871Yeah but goblins make shit weapons dude. Not to mention we have a town here that need defending. I definitely agree on finding other tribes and goblin lairs, but we need wildmen smiths. Not to mention a better forge and pastures to feed the troops. Armies march on their stomachs and it's only a matter of time before cannibalism sets in.going to phone post soon so don't be surprised if my ID changeds
>>1230871Seconding going to the mountains. We could also make contact with the wildmen as well.I'm sure they'd love putting their grubby little hands on the women of Rohan.
>>1230877I want to get one more good raid in before we move
Let's take some human women as well, they'll be useful. If for anything, staving off on killing them will keep the meat fresh.
>>1230886That attracts attention, we don't want that. Is Moria near? That's a good option... assuming it's occupied by dwarves just find a regular pair. Send some diplomats to other off tribes, tell them the armies of Saruman match again. Upgrade forge when?
>>1230913I'm just waiting for a general consensus
Also someone mentioned taking the old chiefs armour. Making talismans from his bones. That sound like a good idea?
>>1230924Sure. Just give me a little bit, dinner will be here soon
>>1230924Glue a waterskin to his skull for visual effect.
where are we one map anyway if were on left side of the river cutting through rohan we can get to the dunlendings but if were on the right we could we are only gonna find ents and rohirim
>>1230771>Upgrade Pits, Forge, Pastures and Defenses
>>1230935I'll be making a map
I think the general consensus is to upgrade the pits, forge, pastures and defences, while also sending out parties to rally other orc tribes, find wargs and wildmen, and search for a goblin lair we can retreat to if needed. Plus taking the old chiefs armour and weapon.
>>1230956Backing.I say we kidnap women and use them as cattle. I imagine human veal is very tender.
>>1230787this is perfect
Alright here's the map and I'll start writing after I eat
>>1230990Cool, its far enough that we don't have to worry about them finding us for a bit at least
>>1230990You got all the votes too right Windi-sempai?
>>1231056Yep. Sorry bout not updating but these pork chops are taking forever to cook
>>1231065All's good man. Take your time, nothing should interrupt a good pork chop
>>1230883Orcs don't not make shit weapons they make crude and vicious weapons full of low cunning and cruelty
>>1231108Well a crude weapon is a shut weapon. Why settle for scrap with tetanus when you can have a proper sword? Besides, we can just give the better smiths the blueprints to orc/Uruk weapons and have them make it better
Having a proper blacksmith still wouldn't hurt though. You think our shit level 1 forge can do anything good?
>>1231128Imagine an orc cleaver, but have it with all the temperings and embezzling a human weapon would have. Instead of a hunk of metal that chops, you get a sharpened blade that has a quick swing speed and a keen edge. Murder would be in the air.
>>1231128Because while they are crude they are effective enough to be more than enough of a threat to humansIt's like you pay no attention to what Tolkien wrote about orcs and want to through everything that made orcs great in the setting for your own tripe
>>1231149Well there's something else to consider now isn't there? WE are Uruk-Hai, not Orc. A crude weapon is unfit for our service. Not to mention, it's been 150 years since the 3rd age. 150 years since ANYTHING has been "great" about Orc-kind. It's set in Tolkien's universe, yes, but no reason to not improve or improvise upon it, especially for something as inconsequential as /qst/. Make Isengard Great Again, or go frolic with your sissy Numenorean faggots.
>>1231200>Make Isengard Great Again>Make Isengard Great Again>Make Isengard Great AgainCaptain Skur for president,
You order the orcs to start upgrading the pits, forge and defenses. The quickly scramble to the storage huts to get to work. This may take a little bit. >orc pit upgrading to lvl 2 (1 stock of scrap)>forge upgrading to lvl 2 (2 stocks of scrap)>small palisades being built Will be done in a weeks timeYou see goblins start to haul the body of the former Chief out. You sit in your newly acquired throne. You also call Finch along with a few more orcs in. "Ar' dere' any more orc tribes?" Finch speaks up. "Only sum' goblin tribes in tha' mountains'n such."He pauses for a moment. "Not that many orcs lef' in da' world boss. Maybe sum' in da' Urkwood' forest, but only us round ere' really." You ponder for a moment before Finch speaks up again. "Dem wildmen ar' round us though. They use ta' serve da White Wizard." Who is this White Wizard he speaks of? Bah. Question for later. You tell Finch to send out goblin scouts to the wildmen lands. You must gather your forces for a coming storm. Before long the goblins come back with the former chiefs armor. "F-for you boss." After a few minutes you look at your new garb. Noice. >now in full plate armor (will now suffer attrition damage and get a +2 to defense) New commands?>build something>send a raiding party>check the orc pits>hire a second in command
>>1231200MIGA all the way. >>1230771Forge upgrades first in foremost imo, better gear is always a must have, followed by pastures and then some defenses.
>>1231349>hire a second in commandPerferably the other Uruk>check the orc pits
>>1231353Orc are terrible at agriculture gotta wait till some humans join you. But all of these as a collective will be done in a week. Also glad I got some fellow namefags
>>1231349>send a raiding partyAs much as lying low sounds nice we gotta get a little more while we still don't seem like too much of a threat, so now's prime raidin time.
>>1231362Seconded.>>1231368Then a raiding party.
I think we should wait on having lieutenants and stuff until we get alot stronger/encampment gets alot bigger. There WAS just a huge chain of commanders being violently replaced after all.
>>1231349>check the orc pits>hire a second in command>Write inInquire about the numbers of your fellow warriors, capabilities and start making roles. (Raiders, warriors, cooks, archers, etc.)I want an Ork and a top hat, but we are a Huruk using a cleaver, get a BIGGER clever in the future.
>>1231385Your numbers are currently>28 orcs>46 goblins>2 uruksYour pits currently spawn 5 orcs and 10 goblins a week 1 uruk also has a chance of spawning
>>1231385If we stick with the idea of having a second, let's reinforce the idea that trying to betray US is the quickest way to becoming chow, also i'm down for organization, but idk how well that'll actually work out long term.
>>1231417I think as long as we stay moderately sober we shouldn't get killed hopefully
>>1231424Let's also try to be mildly accommodating and not spark resentment.
So have you come to a decision?
>>1231452Looks like we're gettin a second in command and makin sure we don't get as drunk as the last boss did. Someone who's done alot of raids is my personal preference.
>>1231417We need to be more cunning, savage and inteligent than the others. Not only the biggest and most cruel.For organization this early, I propose:>Orcs>Warriors (Heavy/Medium, melee)>Hunters (medium/light, ranged; Bow/throwing weapons)Then (when we get more numbers):>Riders (we need Wargs)>Archers (light ranged)>Goblins>Skirmishers (light, ranged)>Maintenance>ForagersAnd the Uruk´s will choose what the fuck they want.Will this become a civ quest? Pls no.
>>1231457If by Civ then you mean a blood soaked bath to victory. But no it won't you're just building your village up for future conquest. You'll still be one character
>>1231457Well that's obviously a given, i'm just not entirely sure what the best way is to go about it is all and I don't think doing the same thing the dude before us did is the best way to go about it.
I'm pausing the quest for a short while. I'll be back in two hours or so. Keep talking and I'll try and answer any questions you guys have for a little bit
>>1231476http://www.planet-tolkien.com/board/5/2458/0/how-do-orcs-reproduceThoughts? How do the breeding pits work?
We should be personally leading these raids. The key to a solid seat of power is making ourselves seem like more than some asshole who shanked the guy before him. Build up that loyalty.We have to earn respect and lead so that every shitcan orc wants to keep us around rather than have our job.Let's lead raids while trying to make contact with the goblin tribes and any sympathetic wild men.
>>1231736I don't think that was ever in question.
>>1232125Ask again later
>>1232125I am now! Shut my computer off for a quick nap.
I think we should kick back off tomorrow. You all kinda fucked up my notes by becoming chief so fast
>>1232452Winning does that sometimes. But we're gonna keep winning, and expanding, and winning, and we will Make Isengard Great Again!
Now then to appoint a second in command. Ironic really just a few hours ago your were the second in command, but you won't get smashed at a feast then get betrayed by your new second...huh. You walk outside and scope out the lot, mostly goblins and orcs. There were those two uruks, but maybe appointing more uruks to command would be...unwise. Then it hits you, who can't overpower you? Has been on raids, and had his "friend" killed? Finch of course! You walk over to the meek goblin and slap a helm on him. He's visibly startled. "W-what's dis fer boss?" You snort. "Youz' da second boss now, Finch." He looks at you and nods. "You know Finch iz' very reliable e' is! Neva' let tha old boss down he didn't!" You walk away towards the orc pits. You see a' many goblins hard at work upgrading a hole in the ground. No new orcs yet. Soon that will change. You take a gander at the village you rule. While now it is pitiful soon it shall be a place that strikes fear into the hearts of men. [End of Session]I need to get my notes in order and find motivation. I'll be back in a few days hopefully with a character sheet for Kurr'z. Stay orcy gents
>>1232791nice session but don't you mean stay uruky?
>>1232791We'll git dis' village redy fo' a roight an' propa WAAARGH
>>1232791lookin forward to the next one
>>1232791Haha! What was the original plan?
>>1232885The hell if I know. We just warboss now
>>1232885I want to know how we were supposed to become bossman.
>>1233015Either through natural selection or by splitting off from the group when we have enough followers of our own i suppose.We just murder hobo'ed our way to the top on a whim.
Can someone archive because QM is a retarded fish that doesn't know how
>>1233561http://pastebin.com/evc64yexLazy archive is lazy.
>>1233595I figured it out, but thanks.
>>1233595wtf is this?There is archive moe, and suptg.
