Rolled 85 (1d100)>>5239324Skaven :^)
Unfortunately, we do not have enough participants. We need at least 4 players for a multiplayer game, because usually, 50% of players quit, so this is the minimum for a good run.My concept was that I was going to take the environment at random from the realms created in Primordial Multiplayer God Quest >>5212663.
There are 8 different divine realms where the multiplayer civilization game can be held.Shong's Realm >>5213007An ocean of sand.Oceanus' Realm >>5213028A large, seemingly endless expanse of water. The skies above are dominated by massive rain clouds, and a gentle but insistent rain falls on the ocean below ceaselessly. This realm is later turned into Quelon's Theosphere.Alcomo's Realm >>5213061A gigantic building, the walls gilded in gold and silver. Within are hundreds of halls and rooms, with many dedicated to a different game of chance and form of gambling each. A few rooms remain empty, as without mortals or servants to fill them with to exchange flesh for money or favors, they lack purpose.Thyp'ptyklpt's Realm >>5213097A library as its realm of infinite proportions to house knowledge that will be gathered for itself.Yrsiil God of the Deep's Realm >>5213141An infinitely deep ocean melding almost perfectly with space. ShadeOfApophis' Realm >>5213194The Grove of the Dead: a realm of rotting fruits and dead plants.Eremog's Realm >>5213409A planet of molten rock and volcanoes is created filled with enough lava to forge a billion swords.Monkie's Realm >>5213555A planet of mighty jungles filled with apes.
>>5239324Insects. I’d like to start in the great library. Hopefully we get more players, I didn’t even see this thread pop up until now.
Rolled 82 (1d100)>>5241341Damn, dice didn’t work. I played one of the Keks back in the Eldritch horror, so I’m pretty excited to be able to do another Mythic with my own character.
All right, let's run this. This quest starts at 13:00 EST.I will control the goblin civilization, and an additional human civilization that can be played as shared civ for latecomers.

>>5241472Fair. I'll elaborate on the particular flavor of undead I'd like to run a little later.And also, QM, don't despair if your game is sluggish to gain traction. /qst/ is a generally slow board.I've actually had the pleasure to play some of your games before and they were fairly spirited and entertaining. Have patience and try to bear with the start-up period, I'm sure we'll all be having a blast soon enough.
GENERAL INFO>The thread runs for 30 days>I will post once per day at about 13:00 ESTAt the end of the 30 days, I will choose a winner for the thread. (The period might be extended.) The winner will be the civ that is the most powerful and developed.During the week, I will post only once per day, including answering questions about mechanics etc. In the weekend, I'll post more, and sometimes run extra turns with random events.Mythic RPG: https://www.rpg.net/reviews/archive/12/12904.phtmlMythic RPG Archive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/qstarchive.html?searchall=Mythic+RPG RULES>Namefag>You must roll 20d100 with each post.

The Great Library is an endless expanse of shelves and books, said to stretch infinitely in every direction. The main inhabitants are the “Scribes of Thyp”, the mysterious gatherers of knowledge. Your race lives in the Great Hall, which is filled with strange tomes about the inner workings of the universe. This hall is vast, with a size of 1 km2. Four aisles stretch from the Great Hall: one to the north, to the east, to the south, and to the west.Rumor: it is said that a small tribe of Atlantean African Americans has been spotted in the eastern aisles (>>5239485).>Each ciz starts with a population of 100>You currently do not own any item or technology of any sort>>5239328Player Anonymous[Mystery Box: Undead rolled 7]A group of undead live in the north-east corner of the Great Hall. Perhaps raised from the cadavers of Scribes of Thyp, or other creatures. Most of them are deformed, mindless zombies, who do nothing but eat, but their Mythical Leader possesses great intelligence, and is a renown necromancer. Here, the stench of rot is unbearable for living beings, and the Scribes themselves avoid this section.>Name your Mythical Leader>>5241463Player PathwayToEnlightenmentThe undead necromancer, with a spell that took one hundred years to cast, cloned themselves and sent the clone and a group of undead to build a colony in the noth-west corner. The clone is, in all aspects, identical to the original spellcaster, but more hideous in appearance. The colony has now developed into its own society, and has cut all ties with the original group of undead.>Describe your particular flavor of undead>>5240369Player RatardThe skaven, a race of man-sized anthropomorphic rats, live in the south-east corner of the Great Hall. They have evolved from regular library rats, who gained sentience and a higher size from countless generations that fed from the divine books of the library. The most powerful of them, the Plague Mage, has gained control over diseases of all sorts. In fact, because their diet is particularly compatible with the environment, they reproduce at a spectacular rate compared to the other races.>Name your Plague Mage
>>5241485>>5241341Player SilverfishThe voracious insect hive lives in the south-west corner of the Great Hall. They have eaten most of the tomes in that section, and it is said that the loss of knowledge from the books they have eaten is a disaster of incomparable proportion. Indeed, the books of the Great Hall are the direct creation of Thyp'ptyklpt, and they are priceless. The Scribes, however, have not taken any action.>Choose one strong mutation, or two minor mutations. Example of mutations (from post >>1525150): burrowing claws, wings, poisonous stingers, snapping claws>>5241352QM WuxianA group of perfidious goblins reside in the western aisles. They are known to be extremely hateful and destructive, and they have exterminated all the other races that used to live in the library, which resulted in the loss of all previously known civilization. Generally, they are feared and avoided by everyone.>>5241352Shared CivThere is also a settlement of human beings in the center of the hall. They have made a circle of shelves around their territory as protection against the more hostile races.

Though they were initially simple insects, introduced by accident after an extradimensional expedition, the sheer amount of Eldritch knowledge has changed them. From eating the ancient tomes and consuming the runes within, they’ve integrated a great potential for learning within their bodies. The Silverfish assimilate whatever they eat, gaining their properties and using it to strengthen the swarm. Now, the insect collective is intelligent and ravenous. They seek to consume as much of the library as they can, to gain its knowledge and add it to the hive, so that they may become a living record of the universe’s knowledge. Let me know if this is fine, and I’ll do my actions after.

The end result is an autonomous spiritual 'lifeform' capable of binding themselves to, and thereby puppeteering, humanoid corpses. Lacking a definite physical form, these entities can only be definitively destroyed via magical means, but conversely while lacking a physical vessel their ability to interact with the material realm is limited.Each instance of this thoughtform very gradually grows more spiritually potent and intellectually sophisticated over time, seemingly empowered by the passive accumulation of experience. Upon developing to a particular extent, these entity's may asexually reproduce, budding off a portion of their being in order to create a new instance of themselves - diminishing the spiritual and mental capabilities of the parent in order to spawn a child.>Action 1: Search the Library for suitable corpses to possess.

>>5242779>>5241522The humans dig down with their nails and fingers, and find another floor of the library, marked by strange and curious markings on the walls. This floor is inhabited by a small group of rebel Scribes, who call themselves the “Apostasy”, and reject all of Thyp'ptyklpt's teachings. They resides in towers made of wood. The top of the highest tower contains a shrine dedicated to the “Apostate”, where one must seek forgiveness before going further. The humans also develop an efficient buddy system, which helps them discover that their missing people had in fact been killed and eaten by goblins and skavens.>Total human population: 110>>5241535The insatiable silverfish consume many of the books of their territory, increasing their numbers at an incredible rate. They ingest many valuable tomes, but find themselves unable to assimilate the new knowledge due to their innate inability for magic. Texts about magic and theology are like mathematics to them; they cannot feel the magic, and it looks like nothing more than abstract theories. They kidnap one of the Scribes, and slow decompose him inside one of their eldritch cocoons, so as to absorb his essence into the hive. Unfortunately, they find that his essence is much too pure for them to contain, because the Scribes are the direct creation of Thyp'ptyklpt himself.>Total Silverfish population: 154>>5241539Mini Event: Zakka Shoeloo wins the auction, and trades 3 slaves for the seeds. Those seeds are incredibly rare and precious, because not many plantforms are known to grow in the Library, and they perhaps represent the only chance to develop agriculture in history. Zakka Shoeloo, however, decides to eat them, which is understandable, considering his tribe comes from Earth and is growing tired of a diet made of only books. The African Americans gather around a huge fire, hoping to attract critters and potential mates. Unfortunately, nothing comes to them. Their Head Chef, with his knowledge of “pruno” brewing obtained during his formative years of prison, spends months attempting to produce booze from papyrus and mold, but he's unable to obtain anything drinkable. This affects the nightly festivities negatively, which are known to require intoxicants to be successful. The copulation is sad, unenthusiastic, and does not produce as many children as hoped.>Total AAA population: 117

Thadmancer spends countless nights studying the enigmatic tomes, and slowly masters the new form of magic. Thus, he learns the spells of Fireball, Toxic Cloud, Disintegrate Ray. The horde also brings him 20 live Scribes, which the Thadmancer traps in a prison of bookshelf, and immobilizes by disintegrating their knee caps. Last, the Thadmancer researches body enhancement magic, but does find any knowledge about the subject.>Total horde size: 140>+20 captured Scribes>+3 spells of destruction>>5241591The great shaman Goblinson trains new disciples. The training is difficult and takes many months, and the final step requires to travel to the spirit realm and hunt and torture the sacred animals. Three younglings return from the other world, with the knowledge of how to burn entire forests. The great shaman also oversees the development of a rat farm. The project is successful, and the goblins develop an unique cuisine of rat skewers eaten with half-burned books.>Goblin population: 140>+2 shamans>+rat farm>>5242406The Proliferous Legacies inhabit the corpses of a few dead humans, and grow a terrifying army of puppets. They find, in a shelf, a box of 10 amulets of invisibility, which they bring to their great leader.Random Event (NPC Negative): Months later, they begin attacking Scribes in an attempt to collect more corpses, but strangely, the Scribes fight back against them. Perhaps some of the Scribes are more violent than others. After several skirmishes, the Proliferous Legacies are defeated, and all of the raised bodies are destroyed and burned.

>>5242785> Action 1: Donning an amulet of invisibility the necromancer, continues his exploration of the segments of the Library under his faction's tentative control. Veiled by obscuring magic, the dark sorcerer once more plunders the various texts and mystical artifacts of the library - a veritable treasure trove of knowledge and marvels lay at his fingertips. While emboldened in his search, the necromancer still retains enough caution to give the scribes a wide berth during his expedition.> Action 2: The necromancer began dismantling the various furnishing of an alcove - well-appointed as a lounge or reading room of some sort - within his territory; reducing decorative rugs and luxurious tapestries down into composite fibers, shattering venerable bookcases and quaint sitting chair for their ancient wood. While it is a tedious task, the versatility offered by these base resources imbue them with a unique sort of value that should not be overlooked.> Action 3: Once more utilizing an amulets of invisibility, the necromancer secrets himself to a site of one the skirmishes between his Legacies and the Scribes, seeking the broken and rent remnants of his servant's discarded vessels. Working silently, the necrotic sorcerer gathers as many corpse fragments as feasible before swiftly retreating to the safety of his territory. Although these disassociated shards of necrotic matter are unfit for use by his Legacies, they may yet be made useful.(This setting is pretty cool. Has potential for a great deal of creativity.)

>>5244154>>5242798Following the provocations of the AAA, the Silverfish develop gigantic retractable penises. While impressive to human standards, they are measured to be, on average, equal to the AAA. Moreover, the insects discover that this evolutionary trait provides no advantage, and in fact makes reproduction with smaller than average sized vaginas more difficult. This downside is mitigated by the development of a special breeder caste that possesses matching reproductive organs. The development of the warrior caste, however, fails, perhaps because of genetic limitations or the lack of military experience.>80% of the Silverfish are turned into breeders, with a 5% breeding bonus>Total population: 43 Silverfish [normal]; 178 Silverfish [breeder]>>5242841The Great AAA Coalition hosts the first International Olympic Games. The ceremony is wonderful, with splendid decorations and party favors of all colors, dominated by a three meter phallic statue of Zakka Shoeloo, which took several months to craft. The Games begin with a Book-Surfing race, where the athletes have to surf down stacked bookshelves to the finish line. This event is won by the Silverfish, using their several arms to gain better balance, to the great deception of the African American athletes, who had trained hard for the race. The second event, the Book-Eating contest, is again won by the Silverfish, who are able to eat the "food" twice faster than the other races. Finally, the third event, the Treasure Hunt, is won by the Skaven, who used their stealth ability to sneak behind the hapless Scribes, who have the fabric of their clothes robbed from them. Overall, the International Olympic Games are won by the Silverfish; the Skaven come in second place; and the Goblins come third.The zombie horde arrives one month late to the Olympics Games.>Total population: 131 AAA>>5243888At the end of the Olympic Games, after the goblins have departed, one of their shamans remains behind, and assassinates the great Zakka Shoeloo, and 8 other members of his retinue.>Total population: 161 goblins, 6 shamans
>>5244154>>5243068The humans develop primitive tools from wood and marble, such as knives, hammers, hooks, and so on. This is a great event, for they are entering history as the first civilization to reach the Stone Age. Next, using their tools, they build four high towers at the corners of their village, which provide visibility over the entire Great Hall. The development of a moss farm fails, because moss is rather rare in the Great Hall, and there's not enough to cultivate.Knowledge (Local): The Underground Scribes reject all of Thyp'ptyklpt's teachings, in particular, the theological aspects regarding reincarnation, angels and demons, the Aruntia Book, the Unknowable Mother, and the virtues of alchemy. The Aruntia Book is the holy scriptures of the other scribes, and describes Thyp'ptyklpt as an omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent, infinite, and eternal spirit personality, the nature of which is that of a Father, whose divine match is the Unknowable Mother.>Total population: 121 humans>Develops Stone Age civilization and tools>+4 wooden towers>>5243856The Great Necromancer walks the alleyways of the north-west sector like a shadow, never sleeping or resting. He opens every book that looks interesting, searches every nook and cranny of the shelves, but frustratingly finds nothing of value, other than uninteresting stories and superstitions about the universe. He gives up, and returns to the battlefield where the corpse puppets and the Scribes had once fought. With his necromancy, he finds himself able to raise 20 ash golems that can serve as bodies for the Legacies. Then, he develops a composite fiber and wood workshop, a sort of mini-factory where the golems produce materials that can be used for construction.>+20 ash golems>+composite fiber and wood workshop>>5244121The twisted art of the Thadmancer allows him to form an abomination from the brains of the twenty Scribes he had captures. The new creature names itself the Mira Mortis. It is sentient, intelligent, and hostile, and is filled with a high degree of necrotic magic, rivaling the greatest wizards in power. The Mira Mortis is nearly immortal, but can be destroyed if all the attached hearts are destroyed. The Thadmancer then explores the halls, and finds a strange stone slab, encrusted with obsidian. Runes that represent the sun, the moon and stars are drawn on it with lacquer. He discovers that the slab is imbued with the power of divination.>Population: 168 zombies>+ Mira Mortis>+ divination slab

The humans, too, are in a hot spot, for the African Americans have officially declared them as being too "fancy".Rumor: >>5244421 It is said that [Redacted], the leader of the Atlantean African American Coalition, is an avatar of the god Shi.Knowledge (theology): >>5212663 Above the dreadful Thyp'ptyklpt, the idiotic Monkie, and the other gods, is Shi, the overlord; the god of the gods.

They fortify their hive with a wall of fire-resistant bookshelves. The explore the southern corridor, and arrive to a smaller hall, divided into two sections. The western section contains another library, with large stained glass windows that shine a warm light upon the books. The books here appear to be blank, and contain only a few sheet of paper. The eastern section contains a museum, where rare books, quills, and inks are exhibited, protected behind reinforced glass.

Their search for knowledge of transmutation is, likewise, unfructuous. They begin consuming drugs that is given to them for free by an African American dealer.

>>5245513>>5244529MAJOR EVENTThe African Americans set fire all over the hall, including their own neighborhood, but avoiding the Silverfish compound. The shelves fall onto one another, and the fire spreads into an uncontrollable manner. The smoke makes the air nearly unbreathable for all, except the undead, who do not need to breathe. The Great Hall is about to be destroyed, and if not stopped, the fire might spread to the entire library.Knowledge (local): The only source of water in the Library are the white marble water fountains, which are rather sparse. The god Thyp'ptyklp has designed them only to provide water to a few Scribes and visitors.

The flames consume everything and even get past the Firefish' wall of fire-resistant bookshelves. Some of the insects retreat to the south, inside of the museum area, but many of them are unable to escape, because another squad of golems cut off their retreat with another fire. The skaven all burn alive, and the smell of burned rat will forever impregnate the walls of the library. Thadmancer and his Horde flee to the northern sectors. The fire is now unstoppable, and burns all the books and all the shelves of the Great Hall, as well as all the Scribes. All the knowledge of the inner workings of the universe is gone forever. The fire spreads further north and east, toward the former territory of the African American Coalition. After a week, when it has nothing to consume anymore, the fire goes out. All that remains is ash and dust, covering the marble floor of the library with a depth of 3 feet.>The undead lose their wood and fiber workshops>>5245551Equipped with stone axes and boomerangs, the crazed Spartan junkies attack the African Americans. The rioters are unarmed and defenseless, and it reminds them of home, when the cops would assault them with rubber bullets and tear gas grenades. They fight bravely against their assailants, summoning the spirit of his Holiness George Floyd in their heart. It’s an all-out brawl, and they manage to defeat the humans. Hundreds of dead bodies lie on the floor, but they have no time to mourn, as the Great Fire threatens to engull the survivors.To the west, the remaining humans set a firebreak, to block the progression of the fire. This works effectively, because they only have a narrow corridor to protect. Thus, they make their new home in the former nest of the goblins. Downstairs, a death squad of humans exterminates all of the rebel Scribes, and perform unearthly rituals to attract the attention of Thyp'ptyklpt, but fail to summon the great god.>Population: 84 humans>The humans lose their wooden towers>>5246009I'll never be able to spell Thyp'ptyklpt by memory...The African Americans move in with the Silverfish, and steal the most valuable artifact from the museum: the Staff of Gaia. (Everything else in the museum is non-magical.) The strength of elemental earth is transmitted through the Staff. It may be used to heal, cleanse, purify, strengthen, and empower. They had planed to perform joint military training exercises, but because the fire has destroyed everything, and most of the water fountains have been sabotaged, they spend the rest of the year just trying to survive.>Population: 6 AAA>+Staff of Gaia

The creature dies of a brain hemorrhage.Description of the museum: The museum's exhibits are stored in glass cabinets, some of which contain valuable parchments and tablets from the past. There are also cases of ancient stone tools and other paraphernalia. Adjacent to the museum is a small botanical garden, with a few exotic plants from Monkie's jungle, such as giant man-eating plants, carnivorous vine and sleep-inducing flower.

They calculate that there were several points of origin for the fire. By analyzing traces of DNA and excrement, they determine that the first fire was originally set at random by the Africans, and then spread around their hive maliciously by creatures made of ash. They also find a pit in the center of the Great Hall, that leads to another floor which has also burned from the fire (formerly, the home of the Rebel Scribes). Under this floor, they find the Deepwater Dungeon, which itself contains two levels, and provides the water for the water fountains of the area.They also search for survivors, but there are none. Everyone who was trapped in the Great Hall perished. From analyzing the remains of the Skaven nest, they discover burned organic matter contaminated with various disease.

The wall is 2 feet thick and has been constructed so that it has a slight curve in it.

The golems harvest the ashes of zombies, insects, and humans who have died and bring it to their leader, the dreadful necromancer PathwayToEnlightenment. By using his terrible magic and making pacts with demons, he turns the ashes into an immaculately fine, highly resonant glass and then, combined with a refined Soulstone array, crafts the Stave of Potence.The Stave of Potence is a weapon of the highest quality. It is a glass staff, energized with the tortured souls of the dead, that enables the bearer to focus their mental strength to the point of producing waves of concentrated magical energy that can be used to store and unleash powerful magic. When it is used, the hateful, maddening voice of the dead can be heard in the head of those who are around the magician.>+Stave of Potence [gain a +2 RS bonus to Magic when wielded]MINI-EVENTIsaias Silverbeak, of the Brooklynite Jewish Confederacy (BJC), opens a bank inside of the Great Hall.

Illusion magic is often snubbed by his contemporaries, dismissed as a mere parlor trick, but they are fools. Over the past century, these amulets have proved their worth beyond any doubt, and it is for this reason that the Necromancer has decided to immerse himself in intense study of both the amulet's invisibility enchantments and the field of illusion magic in general.> Action 2: Once again, three magically-cloaked ash golems are deployed to scour the smoldering wreckage of the library for more corpse ash. While this cursed soot is a fine and malleable material, seething with ingrained anguish and animosity as it is, the Necromancer suspects might be wise to begin stockpile a more robust collection of resources. Tasks for a later date.> Action 3: Using the collected ashes and the remaining soulstones, the Necromancer commences the construction of his greatest servant yet. Fusing the soulstones together into a condensed mass through the invocation of baleful occult forces and dread rituals, the Necromancer created a kernel of singular, wildly violent power - a soulstone core. Throwing up arcane wards to contain erupting nebula of searing malevolence, the necromancer works meticulously to weave a grand spiraling web of enchantments, inseparably binding each individual grain of ash collected by his golems to the soulstone core. As the wards are removed, the core abruptly gravitates into the mass of ash, the maelstrom of infernal heat radiating from its surface reducing the pile of corpse ash into sloughing, burbling mass of molten glass which then coalesces around the core, flowing and shifting with unnerving intent. A suitable vessel for a Legacy if there ever was one.

Will it hold through the onslaught of the demon?>>5249170With only their stone tools, the Spartans patiently break down the steel pipes that are abandoned, and bring back the metal to their village. The pipes are high enough for a human to walk inside of them, and consequently, the metal they collect is in the form of 6 feet high, curved steel sheets. [They bring back 250 of those.]Another group of Spartans begins work on the quarry. When they attempt to dig down, they find that there are tunnels under them. Hence, they work by breaking down walls in the territory south-west of their camp. They find stone and marble which are cut in the shapes of large blocks that are usable for primitive construction.>+ quarry>+ steel pipe mine>Population: 104 humans>>5249183The farming of fish in the Deepwater Dungeon is a very easy operation. It appears that all the creatures of the Dungeon respawn one week after they have been killed. The insects only have to secure a path between each pond and harvest all of the fish. This new source of food is much more satiating than books, and sufficient to grow a population to the thousands. The assimilation of sea creatures proves impossible, however. It seems that the Silverfish are reluctant to absorb the genetic traits of their food, out of fear of being turned into food themselves by their kindred.A Squad of Silverfish, led by a Plague Mage, searches the entire region for the creatures of ash who are responsible for the fire. They find a campment in the north-west of the Great Hall inhabited by a powerful necromancer and twenty ash golems. They remember those as the undead who had always ignored their envoys.>+ fish farm>Population: 691 Silverfish [Breeder], 137 Silverfish [Normal]>>5249347The African Americans scavenge for food in the sectors of the dungeon secured by the Silverfish military force.

They bring back the ingredients to their home base in the botanical garden, and grow them inside the water fountains.
>>5250777Their new High Priestess, Guap'tisha Rashad, works with the insectoids to develop a new hybrid race. She is delightfully ravished by the breeder and, using the magic of Gaia, gives birth to monstrous offsprings who have the traits of both the African Americans and the Silverfish. The hybrids have a body that is African American in general shape, covered with simian fur, insect wings, and amorphous ganglia, and possessing the head and limbs of an insect. Their brain is only partially functioning; they cannot reason, and are extremely aggressive. They communicate by hissing and clicking. When translated by the Silverfish, their speech expresses permanent terror and agony, as well as the worship of the the Unknowable Mother. The hybrids are short-lived and sterile, having a lifespan of only one week. One turn being one year, they are now dead.>+ 55,000 USD>+ 20 dead bodies of Guap'tisha hybrids>+ Martin Luther King Jr's Crab farm>Population: 6 African Americans [Breeder]>>5249354PathwayToEnlightenment studies the invisibility amulets for months in his laboratory. He's constantly writing down his observations, and comparing them to his knowledge of necromancy. After running several tests, he finds himself able to isolate the magical particles which power the amulets, and to extract them. Research into the field of Illusion without any book to help him proves tremendously difficult, but by consulting the spirit of the dead, he's able to produce an invisibility spell that copies the energy frequency of the particles, and works by draining all mana and lifeforce from the surrounding environment.The ash golems work digilently to harvest all the ashes of all the creatures that have perished in the fire. The production and refinement of a Soulstone Core, as described, is successful. The Soulstone Core can be used as vessel for a Legacy; further, it can be used to load and unload magic.>+ draining invisibility spell>+ Soulstone Core>>5250576When exploring the northern tunnels, Thadmancer's zombies find themselves inside of a labyrinth of pipes, which is difficult for them to navigate due to their low intelligence. The pipes are of all size, of copper and of steel. They are inhabited by nests of feral goblins, armed with makeshift weapons, who ambush the zombies from the shadows. The zombies find a ventilation shaft that is clear of any goblin, and leads to a library of 250 meters in diameters. All the books here only have blank pages.

Leveraging his arcane might, the necromancer reshaped the liquid glass into a slightly more consistent shape - a hulking facsimile of a man. Finally, he permitted one of his Legacies to claim the scalding nightmare, the Greater Golem of Molten Glass, as a vessel. The end result was formidable: a crawling giant of perpetually melting glass, its body all but imperious to destruction given the inconsistency and self-liquifying nature of its flesh. The main vulnerability of this construct, besides launching a spiritual assault on the Legacy which piloted the golem, was the core - encased deep within the molten glass, silently raging beneath the surface like a miniature star. A sufficiently powerful blow to the relic could obliterate it (with the ensuing arcane discharge dragging anything nearby along for the ride) in spectacular fashion, obviously rendering the golem inert and unsuitable for possession. Despite these considerations, the Necromancer smiled grimly as his new servant rose. > Action 2: Curious to test out his new enchantment, PTE imbued his newly formed Greater Golem as well as himself with the draining invisibility enchantment. The necromancer was uncertain of whether there would be any major complications with attaching such a mana intensive spell to such innately magical entities. He supposed that he would find out soon enough.> Action 3: The necromancer PTE was vaguely aware of interlopers probing the fringes his territory, little beads of life energy crawling through the ashen desolation of the great hall. He knew not how many there were exactly, their capabilities, nor their intent. This deficiency in information was perhaps a failing on his part, but one that he could remedy. As PTE's faction has avoided setting down roots or establishing any stationary presence within the library, he was uniquely detached from what others might consider his 'territory'. His base, such as it was, was nothing more than a convenient space to congregate his forces, there were no structures nor immobile assets of any significant worth contained within. With this all in mind, the necromancer would ply his newfound familiarity in illusion magic to set some bait, a means to gauge the nature and intent of any would-be intruders. Specifically, he would spin an illusion of an intensive ritual involving PTE and his Golems, one which would appear to demand their undivided concentration. Meanwhile, his physical forces would disperse into two groups (five ashgolems wearing 5 invisibility amulets and two talismans of negative energy with PTE; five ash golems wearing 5 invisibility amulets and two talismans of negative energy and with the Molten Glass Golem) and observe the proceedings from a distance.

>>5252348The renown Atlantean African American Coalition hosts the second Semi-Annual Olympic Game. The opening ceremony is dominated by the Spartans, who display their prowess with impeccabble military drills, clad in shiny armors of metal. The first game is the Ashball Tournament, which is played with a ball of ash, made compact with the saliva of Silverfish larvae. This game is easily won by the Spartans, who possess superior teamwork and military tactics from years of rigorous training. In fact, all games are won by the Spartans. Their superior technological development allows them to win the Ash-Sledding Race with a superb sled of steel, a wonder of metalsmithing which slides smoothly on the ash and is armed with mounted blades of metal that destroy the sleds of their competitors. Due to all Rebel Scribes having been exterminated during the fire, the third game is cancelled. The Olympic Games are won by the Spartans. The second and third places are won by the African Americans and the Silverfish respectively. An honorary fourth place is given to the Skaven, who have been massacred and can no longer participate.Rumor: >>5251620 The undead race as a whole develops a reputation of untrusworthiness.>>5250790>>5251109The Silverfish raise a squad of 50 elite soldiers to raid the camp of the ash golems. When they arrive, they find a ghoulish necromancer performing a ritual to the ancient ones with his golems. They chant terrifying syllables which create terror inside of the insects, triggering a genetic memory from ancient times when they were not sentient.While mesmerized by the scene, a column of 50 well-disciplined zombies arrives from the east attack them with club weapons made of stone. The zombies savagely bash the heads of the insect open, which crack with a horrifying, loud sound. The insects feel terrorized and attempt to flee, but they are caught with boomerangs and swiftly shot down. The zombies crouch to devour their brains and internal organs. When there's nothing left of their enemies, they return to the camp of their master, the Thadmancer.Inside the safety of the museum, the insect breeders develop a new sort of mutant, which has the ability to produce silk. The material is as strong and flexible as the silk of spiders from our Earth, but produced in much larger quantities due to the larger size of the Silverfish.Random Event (NPC Action): The Silverfish also suffer a raid from the goblins, who sneak past their defenses, and sabotage their installations in the Deepwater dungeon by setting fires and poisoning the ponds with mold. This is a very unlucky year for the Silverfish. The fish farm is no longer functional until the damages are repaired.>Population: 691 Silverfish [breeder], 87 Silverfish [weaver]
>>5252352>>5250895High Priestess Guap'tisha Rashad spends months in a secret retreat, praying to her goddess Gaia for her blessing. She hears inside of her head the warm, caring voice of her goddess, who tells her that she will give her the most beautiful babies a woman has ever had. The priestess goes back to the museum and offers herself to the males of the Silverfish race. She gives birth to octoplets, who have the body of a Silverfish in general shape, covered with scales, insect wings, and amorphous ganglia, and possessing the head, brain and paws of an African American. The males are equipped with gigantic, retractible penises, as do their Silverfish ancestors. Those mutants reach maturity in only nine months, and are highly fertile. After their birth, they naturally worship the entity known as “Nyarlathotep”, from a rare genetic memory that has been opened from the fiendish mutations.>Population: 7 African American [breeder], 8 African American [insectoid]>>5250907The death sorcerer PTE begins the construction of his most ambitious project: the Greater Golem of Molten Glass. He oftens daydreams and pictures himself smiling grimly as his new servant rises. However, the project is most difficult to complete; not only is liquid glass difficult to mold in a consistent shape, but the Legacies are strangely incompatible with the prototypes. He estimates that he will need another year of hard work to finish the project.As a side project, PTE imbues an ash golem with the draining invisibility enchantment. He's not able to perceive any difference of any scope from the enchantment of the amulets of invisibility.His brilliant mind is vaguely aware of a group of insignificant, human-sized insects who came to his camp, and watched his illusions in awe.>Greater Golem [1/2]

The humans know that they are going to die. They don't have the ability to fight or to run from the cyclopean creature. Suddenly, the roof of the library crumbles and the Sumaru finds itself trapped under blocks of marble. The Spartan engineers had been developing in secret anti-titan in technology. With his last breath, the Sumaru curses them:My father, our Holy Father Shi, Father of Heaven, Creator of the Universe, will avenge my death. My nineteen older brothers, who are all taller and stronger than I am, will come to the library, and crush it with their gigantic fists! For I was only the runt of the family, and our heavenly father only ever used me for the most disgraceful and petty tasks. I curse you, mortals! I curse you forever!The Spartans build a forge where the sheets of metal can be grossly flattened and shaped. From this metal, they are able to craft rudimentary, uneven hammers, clubs, and body armors. They are also able to use the sheets for construction, to reinforce walls or as roofs.>+rudimentary steel technology>Population: 114 humans>>5251109The Dark Lord performs a complex ritual to summon the spirit of the dead from the ether, and transforms them into wraiths who obey all of his commands.

The wraiths feed from the energy of the living and from recently deceased corpses.The undead attempt to copy the metallurgy of the Spartans. However, the engineering skills of his zombies are much inferior to that of the humans, and they are not able to produce anything useful.>+5 wraiths>Population: 219 zombies

PTE chuckles wryly upon discovering the pustular remains of the plague mage. What manner of fool would attempt to fight *the dead* with pestilence and ailments?> Action Three: Presenting himself before the Thadmancer, PTE respectfully hails his fellow necromancer and expresses gratitude to him for disposing of the mortal reprobates infringing upon his territory. Moving off on a bit of a tangent, the necromancer explains that in addition to his necromantic inclinations he also wields considerable proficiency in the art of Enchantment and would thusly like to offer Thadmancer a gift as a gesture of good will - a magical item of his choosing. Finally, PTE suggests an alliance between their factions, at least until all immediate mortal threats within the library have been neutralized.

Each totem is designed to project a large, but very faint, magical field which exerts a subtle disorienting effect upon the perception and recollection of those travelling through it, thereby increasing the likelihood that inattentive or weak-willed travelers will get turned around or become lost. PTE aims to fashion over 10 instances of these totems, but will hold off on placing them anywhere for the moment.

There are no visible creatures anywhere, and no Scribes. While the Library is infinite in size, only the central room, the Great Hall, was filled with useful books. The Library was conceptualized as such by Thyp'ptyklpt, as a core of knowledge that can be nurtured and grown as much as one needs. The Silverfish use this empty region to build a quarry.The Silverfish conquer the rest of the Deepwater dungeon, reaching the throne room of the king of the crabmen, the last room of the palace of coral.

Meticulously, the dark sorcerer carves each exoskeleton into dozens of finger-sized tiles, inscribes nightmarishly profane curses and sigils of abominable implication onto each tile, then marinades the macabre talismans in the boiling ichor of the mutilated insects. Afterwards, the necromancer crafts a cloak of tiles from the woven muscle fibers of the processed corpses combined with the aforementioned chitin plates. Finally, the necromancer embeds an enchantment which inspires singular and overwhelming terror and despair within those unfortunates that behold the cloak. The potency of this enchantment is magnified dramatically by restricting the valid targets of this effect to the Silverfish and creatures derived from them, all other entities are immune.Action 3: Stripping 10 more insect corpses of their exoskeleton and various membranes, PTE begins fashioning plates chitin to strap onto his Ash golems in order to grant them extra longevity in combat.> -Comm: Weaving an illusion around himself, PTE disguises himself as an elderly scholar, draped in modest trappings - a hooded robe of thickspun cloth, a time-worn mahogany mask, and a crooked walking stick - comes before the shared human civilization. Acting out the role of a wizened wanderer, PTE hails the shared human civilization as Conquerors of Holy Shi's Offspring and meekly issues an offer. In journeyman's guise, PTE expresses interest in Sumaru's bronze flesh, to have a chance to study such an exotic material would be of grant academic value. For fragments of Sumaru's body the old stranger is willing to accept commissions for magical items - a magical item of lesser quality for each single shard, or alternatively a magical item of average quality per five shards.

The exhibition includes the fading portrait of a man, signed Basil Hallward; the nauseating portrait of a dog-like creature, signed Richard Upton Pickman; the portrait of an undead necromancer, signed Godmachine; and the disturbing painting of a mountainous landscape, signed Nicholas Roerich. The path goes further to the west and then is abruptly stopped by a bottomless abyss of a hundred meters in diameter.

The high priestess analyzes them and determines that they are enchanted.When they walk back toward the exit, they find that it has been blocked with boulders.

The great necromancer once again secludes himself and commences research in the vaulted and abstruse subject of teleportation. Space-time was one of the oldest and most fundamental forces of reality, and indeed uncountable sorcerers have wasted their lives vainly striving to fully comprehend the boundless fractal temporal. The necromancer had no delusions of mastering the capricious, ever-shifting dimensions of space-time, even if his undead nature afforded him a theoretical eternity to study it. Not only was such a pursuit grossly impractical in the short-term, but in the long-term all but guaranteed unimaginable peril. The necromancer was acutely aware that the wreckage of shattered timelines and discarded frames of reference harbor undefinable things, anomalies bereft of origin, trajectory, or destination which pose a grave existential threat even to those liberated from the mortal coil. Fortunately, PTE has no need to delve so deeply into the treacherous eddies of causality and relativity. All he requires is the capacity to create a stable spatial rift, two points in space designated, overlapped, then linked thereby allowing passage between as though they were adjacent - a straight-forward, reliable rift spell. PTE is aware that even an ambition as narrowly-defined as this would demand years, perhaps decades of intensive study, even for an erudite mind such as his - what's more he has no related literature or reference materials on hand to work off of. Fortunately, he had devised a solution to this conundrum, one that would permit him to bypass the time investment and some of the inherent dangers of blind experimentation - he would fall back upon his primary discipline. As he did earlier, the necromancer would commune with the errant souls of bygone sorcerers and deceased scholars, deftly filching pertinent insights and coercing them to surrender scraps of knowledge which might prove useful in his endeavor.
I just got back from the office so the update will be an hour or two later than planned. Normally, I'm homeworking and can write the update while working.
Looks like no one wanted the enchanted jewels, looks like they're all ours. Auction over. Time to experiment with these fuckers...
>>5257307We were going to bid, but only if the Undead also did it. Mostly hesitated since giving the AAA members of our population as slaves would have been very awkward when we live with each other. Much rather you lads have the gems instead.
>>5257312Of course, of course. We realize it was a bit ridiculous to include you in the proposal, but we couldn't rewrite it due to the TFC (Thyp'pty Fried Crab) grease on our hands, it would've made the note look all sloppy. Also, we didn't want to appear to be going behind your backs.
>>5257330Of course, of course. If we had to bid, we'd probably have split off a portion of the population to be under your direct control instead of slavery. We do still have Silverfish warriors who you can command for expeditions and such, but auction prizes would have been direct subordinates of the AAA.Let us know if you need anything to help research of those gems. Maybe there'll be something useful beyond the bridge.

>>5257371The Great Hall is flooded with blood, with a depth of 50 cm. All of the ash dissolves.>>5256355Merchant Trisha Jones holds an auction for enchanted jewels. “Come one, come all, modafuckas. I'm slingin' magic crack rocks an' sheeiit.” A goblin approaches, seemingly interested. “Iz dis reallrit magic, m'am?” Trisha's eyes widden. “Who you lookin' at, modafucka?” She screams hysterically, and pushes the goblin on the floor. The goblin begs for his life, but it only makes her angrier, and she kicks him repeatedly in the head. “Wata [unintelligible] fucka, dis ain't [unintelligible] [unintelligible] not gon' [unintelligible] piece of [unintelligible].” After this incident, no other customer comes near her stall. [Redacted] sends her on a diplomacy mission to the Den Mother. When she returns, she reports that her mission was a success. She describes the gnolls as kind, wise, and humble, and explains that the previous events were only a misunderstanding. She brings as a gift pouches of enhanced crack, for the African Americans to enjoy.A few months later, Trisha and Doumbek Ray, her pimp, travel back together to the Great Hall. Trisha is wearing delicate make-up made from ash and crushed coral, and looks charming and beautiful. Doumbek Ray plays advanced rhythms on his drum, and she jiggles her body seductively to attract customers. Despite this, no one seems interested. She notices that the goblins, in particular, are avoiding her. This makes her quite upset, and she kills another one by stomping on his skull.>+ pouches of enhanced crack>Population: 12 African American [breeder], 16 African American [insectoid]>>5256434The forge of the Spartans is improved with pipes and bellows, to the point that they can produce heat above the temperature of 1000°C. By mixing copper with various substances harvested from sewer refuse, they produce the metal known as bronze, which is harder than pure copper. They are now able to create tools and weapons of bronze.The humans and goblins explore the Library, searching for books. In the central area, everything has been burned and reduced to ash; in the sewers, there are no books or libraries. They attempt to trade clockwork trinkets with the Scribes, but even the Scribes have lost all books. The Scribes have only book, written on a stone table in cuneiform, which is a theological essays against the undead.A battle royale is held in the human prison. The rules are as follow: the goblins have to collect a few stone daggers, which are hidden at various locations of the prison. Then, they are to fight to death, and the surviving one can leave. The humans do not know of any magic, but while the goblins are battling, they whisper dark prayers to Thyp'ptyklpt, Shi, and “whichever dark force would lend an ear.” The sound of thunder is heard in the distance.

Just stick and string? A: YesThe Silverfish explore past the bridge. They arrive is a large chamber with a single throne, and a floor of obsidian and crystal. This place is called the Tribunal. It is a site of great antiquity, and possibly the oldest structure in the Great Library. It is said that Thyp-p'tyklpt created the Tribunal to deal with the disputes of the Scribes, and to uphold his right to the secrets of the universe. Past the Tribunal, the path leads to the Emerald Temple, a site of great power and mystery. The Temple is a large chamber, with a wide walkway leading to a large, circular dais. The dais is covered in gems, and is surrounded by a pool of black water, with the gems being reflected in the surface.Using shells, carapaces, and silk, the insects develop the prototype of a powerful crossbows, based on the model developed by Aristonymos, but with higher structural strength and elastic force.An army of 500 Silverfish breeders are sent to the northern reaches to battle the undead. The weather is cold and unforgiving. The battle is long and hard. The Silverfish are courageous fighters, and their race fights to the death, even when they have no chance of winning. Their foes are relentless. Those who have higher intelligence know their lord will torture them if they lose. The Silverfish are slaughtered. Thadmancer appears on the battlefield, and laughs evilly. He raises his hands to the sky, invokes the name of the dark gods, and the corpses of the freshly deceased Silverfish rise...>+ crossbow>Population: 726 Silverfish [breeder], 169 Silverfish [weaver], 120 gnoll, 65 crabman [pureblood], 60 crabman [insectoid]>>5255472You gain 315 insectoid zombies.>>5257240The necromancer PTE communes with the most evil souls of sorcerers from hell.

Conflict between the necromancers would make little sense, especially given the circumstances - besides PTE is a clone of Thad, wrought of his flesh, biologically speaking they are practically the same individual.>>5257374> Action 1 & 2: Posting them along the border to the silverfish's territory, PTE instructs his shrouded golems to intervene in the event that he is exposed, then attempts to sneak past the Silverfish's fireproof fortifications alone. If successful, he will search for a rarely-trafficked region of the insect's territory and invoke his Rift spell there, manifesting a spatial gateway. The portal formed will lead nowhere for now, utterly inert, nothing but a mere spatial blemish until it is linked to another active gateway. Once he is certain the rift is at least stable enough to sustain itself until the end of the turn, PTE hastily exfiltrates from bug country.> Action 3: Travelling covertly, the necromancer PTE returns to undead territory and descends into the deep water dungeon through the aperture in the Great Hall's heart. Doubtful that his invisibility will obscure traces of his presence in the fluid, PTE takes great care to avoid needless motion lest he attract unwanted attention from the denizens of this murky, subterranean reservoir. Untroubled by the absence of oxygen, the undead mage motionlessly sinks to the boundary between the first and second level's of the Deepwater dungeon. Once in position, he performs the rift spell once again, manifesting an second gateway suspended in the aquatic abyss - then, bracing himself for the whirling pandemonium that shall come next, he links it to the gateway set-up above, in the Silverfish's territory.

>>5258469The times of peace are gone. The civilizations are now at war. On one side, the Allied Forces, made of the insects, the Africans Americans, and the Spartans. On the other side, a newly formed alliance between the undead. Each side holds deep rancor for the other. The insects hate the undead for burning down their nest; the undead hate the insects for being dangerous warmongers. Even the Scribes, holders of sacred knowledge, engage in propaganda.The Allied Army of the African Americans and Insects run military drills in the blood swamp of the Great Hall. The environment has greatly changed; it is now a misty swamp, infested with mosquitoes and bats. In some parts of the swamp, the mist looks toxic; even poisonous. They both practice with each other's ranged weapons, strengthening their spirit of comradeship. The atmosphere is tense; war is looming.Random Event (PC Positive): At night time, the shrouded golems work secretly to make the Silverfish wall waterproof, by adding solid, crystallized ash to it.The secret servives of the Allied Forces send a stealth squad of African Americans and abominable hybrids to ambush the zombies. Once per day, the zombies leave their camp in groups of one hundred, to feed from the blood of the swamp. This is the perfect opportunity to strike. The stealth squad attacks them with the hammer and anvil tactic; the “anvil” is a “substantial body, that hits the enemy hard and pins”, while the “hammer” is a highly mobile army that flanks the target. The zombie army, alone without its leader, is confused, and fights in a disorganized manner. They are killed, one after another, by the flying rungus and maringes.In another section of the swamp, the Allied Forces send a company of Spartans, clad in shining armors of bronze, in perfect phalanx formations, advancing in close ranks. They ambush another group of zombies. This attack is even more efficient than the hammer and anvil tactic. The zombies fight like brutes, throwing themselves at the shields and armors of the Spartans, impaling themselves on their spears. The result is a complete wipe out of the zombies.The largest contigent of the army then enters the swamp. This is the Ranged Battalion; a highly mobile battalion, which the insects send to reduce the enemy numbers. Their plan is to unleash their swarm afterward. However, the undead are not as defenseless as the insect tacticians had predicted. When they approach, a dense, toxic cloud appears above the undead village, surrounding, concealing it, and asphixiating all creatures that gets near it. The insects, unprepared for this move, retreat back to their territory.
>>5258471Random Event (Epic Critical):All of this had already been meticulously calculated by the inhumanely intelligent Mira Mortis. The Thadmancer appears on the battlefield, materializing from the shadows, behind his mortal enemies. He whispers harsh, crytic words, and casts a powerful fireball, which makes the blood of the swamp reach high temperatures, and boil all of the insects. Hundreds of frail, chitinous bodies drown in the cursed swamp. The Thadmancer raises his hands, as he had done before, and thanks the dark gods. He mocks the mortals, spewing hateful words, and revives them as his new army of zombies.After the attack of fire, PTE travels past the Silverfish's wall, undetected by the sentinels. There, he invokes the dangerous Rift spell, and creates a stable gateway connected to the Immaterium, the dreadful plane of psychic energies, home of demons and the chaos gods. The sentinels, seeing this evil magic, begin evacuating the citizens. Then, PTE travels to the Deepwater Dungeon, getting past all of its defenses, invisible and stealthy. Not taking any time to admire the beautiful environment, he creates a second rift gate. A psychic portal is opened between the two gates, and the waters of the reservoir flood the insect territory. The insects who hadn't evacuated are swiftly drowned into a 10 feet tall tsunami.

>>5258630In real life, evil entities feed from the suffering of souls. They don't have a soul themselves, hence, cannot dilute it.However, I'm curious to hear, what is the rationale for soul dilution in Esoterrorists? I'm not familiar with the system other than Mystery Man.
>>5259511My understanding is that the state of mind is like baking/seasoning and eating “raw” might not give sustenance (excepcion to those that consume the fisical body)Hence why they toy with victims and why different entities target specific demographics. From the Practice:"An organ is only useful to the Practice if it has been charged with negative energies, such as those that result from fear, panic and agony."From the Host:"They only crave the soul essence of the fervently faithful who have been pure in deed as well as in belief. They recoil from the soul-taste of holier-than thou types whose supposed devotion masks selfish or exploitative behavior.”From the Ovvashi:“It targets them because they are ideal for exploitation. The homeless have nothing; they are hungry, desperate and alone and they understand need like no other.”

The intent being to help shroud the existence of the actual totems, making them at least inconspicuous enough to avoid detection via cursory inspection.> Action 2: Having neglected the task in favor of countering the Silverfishes warmongering, PTE decided now was an ideal opportunity to relax by process the corpses in his possession into base materials. After compiling the remaining insect corpses in his possession, the necromancer begins to clinically dismantling them. As the bodies were rendered down into base materials, they were distributed into four separate categories: Cerebral matter, Ichor, Offal, Chitin. > Action 3: Feeling restless, PTE reviewed the tactical situation of the undead alliance and the escalating conflict between it and the silverfish confederation. After some further contemplation, PTE finally settled on a decision. Mustering up a quarter of the insect ichor and all of the insect brain matter from his personal stock, the necromancer began the construction of a magical artifact. Selectively gathering the least decayed neural synapses from the pile of cerebral mush piled before him, PTE began channel faint streams of arcane energy through gossamer threads of nervous material stimulating the flesh to begin replicating and weaving itself into an intricate and densely packed spherical mass about the size of an orange. Next, the occultist saturate the insectoid blood with arcane energy, compelling it to envelop the spherical mass, then warping the excess fluid into the shape of a scepter. Finally, the necromancer crystalized the magically charged ichor and began to inscribe an esoteric network of theurgical sigils across the newly manifested relic - A Scepter of Fell Dominion, with a few choice modifications. This sort of magical item is typically employed by necromancers as a means of extending the depth and breath of control over their undead minions, the relic allows the user to stream a sliver of their consciousness through the minds of all undead beings leashed to their will consequentially enhancing the general competence and coordination of those servants. PTE's design however was substantially more specialized, in exchange for an *extreme* boost to the Scepter's potential potency PTE had implemented two major restrictions to its the scope and range. Regarding the scope, the item's effect only applies to undead invertebrates bound to serve the user. Regarding the range, only undead within the caster's direct line of sight are valid targets for the effect. In the event that the customized Scepter of Fell Dominion is successfully constructed this turn, deliver it to the Thadmancer with a note briefly outlining its function and limitations.

The most notable flaw in their war tactics is that deaths provide more fodder for their enemies. They need to kill an overwhelmingly high amount, in order to make up for any casualties. While the shell-plague is a solution, a preventative measure is also needed. Action 1:>The Silverfish attempt to evolve blood that rapidly acidifies upon death. This allows them to harm those who kill them, and serves to reduce dead bodies into unusable tatters that the necromancers can’t make use of.Next, the evolution of new castes is necessary. They’ve been through war now, solving the earlier problem of not having enough experience, so it’s high time to create a warrior class. They aim to breed beings capable of wielding the artifacts they’ve been given. The Tauborn are meant to be hulking warriors with thick armour, extra arms, and great strength. And the Overseers are meant to overcome the sneaky motherfuckers who keep waltzing deep into our territory to do shit. This caste is intended to have hypersensory capabilities and processing ability, to detect the unseen.Action 2:>Evolve a superior Warrior caste, with shells capable of turning blades away, Herculean strength, and bravery to match. These shall wield the blades in baffle, as chosen knights of the hive.Action 3: >Evolve Silverfish with hypersensory capabilities. Extra antennae, boosted senses of taste, touch and hearing, sharper eyes that see additional spectrums, all sorts of abilities to overcome the undetected, and bring them to light.And finally, as communication, they send the same group of Crab supplicants off in search for the Scribes and their knowledge. >Send envoys to the scribes to beg them for aid regarding the rift. What we have to offer is simple. The Silverfish are beings who assimilate, and they’ve eaten countless books, many of which were magical in nature. With the loss of the great treasure trove, any possible knowledge may still remain in the form of assimilated information, buried within the minds of the most ancient silverfish.

As has become his signature, PTE constructed the monument out of magically resonant glass sourced through the repeated incineration of the insect flesh within his possession. Every surface of the monolith is choked with densely packed blocks of glyphs and ritualistic diagrams of foreboding implication, PTE carving them into the material at a feverish pace. Only once his magnum opus is complete is its true nature revealed - baleful arcane energy ripples up the obelisk's tip, before flaring with unprecedented violence and rupturing the fabric of reality. The gaping aperture that was created, and held open, by PTE's monolith led directly into the dimensional plane of entropy. Almost immediately, the looming entropic nexus began ravenously siphoning thermal energy from its surroundings, causing the temperature within the Great Hall, and indeed eventually the library at large, to begin plummeting towards absolute zero at an alarming rate. Simultaneously, the rip in reality endlessly hemorrhaged forth a smothering miasma of negative energy which expanded outwards from Thadmancer's fortress, constantly invigorating the undead and eroding away the living essence of mortals. In a matter of hours, the concentrations of entropic energies ascend to such obscene heights that the Thadmancer's fearsome battlements are functionally sterilized of all microbial life.
>>5239324Hey QM, got a question about the races. The necromancers come from:>+Mythical Leader (Rare Attunement Necromancy] Right? Are they considered just an NPC asset of the civilisation, or do they have any sort of player-insert immunity outside of that? And what sort of bonuses does that give in regards to rolls? I'd like to know the general level of the Necromancers themselves, compared to the soldiers and troops of the other races. Because it feels a bit demoralising that a single unit can pretty much completely repel anything else solo.
>>5260811The necromancers are mere NPCs. They are roughly worth 100 units. Thadmancer's fireball was so strong because he got an epic critical bonus.
>>5260825Right. So despite the lads playing 'as' them, they're still susceptible to anything an NPC would be?

This mutation is unsuccessful, and results into larvae that die from their own acids. The second mutation attempts to develop greater senses, with extra antennae, however, those larvae have a smaller penis and are put to death by the other insects. The third mutation is the development of a warrior caste, with huge muscles and hardened shells. This mutation is successful, and the result is the Tauborn, which can crush a human skull in only one second.

The goddess reveals that the name “Gaia” is a mistranslation of the Spartans. In fact, her correct name in the African languages is “Mami Wata”, the Voodoo nature goddess. Further, she reveals that among her boons is the power of creating Voodoo zombies, which would not be expected of the Spartan Gaia. The high priestess rises the body of rotten, drown crabmen from the Rift River, and turns them into zombies who obey all of her orders.
>>5261090In the southeast regions, archaeologists of the African Americans research the meaning of the strange glyphs. They discover that the glyphs can easily be converted to the Roman alphabet, and begin the translation. As they had expected, the text is about Thyp'ptyklpt. However, the revelations of the text are entirely blasphemous, and it is not magical, as they had hoped. They glyphs reveal that Thyp'ptyklpt is actually an ancient avatar of Shi, the creator himself, and the true reason for his nature is to protect and guide the mortal and divine realms away from the creator's wrath. It is his duty to prevent the creator from entering the mortal realm and destroying it, as he has done countless times before. The text warns that one must never pray to Shi, for fear of causing the destruction of the multiverse.>Population: 28 zombies [crab], 12 African Americans [insectoids], 6 African Americans [breeder]>>5260412The Thadmancer gets his zombies to sculpt a crown of stone.

A black hole opens above the obelisk's tip; an ominous eye connecting the Great Library to the Plane of Entropy. In the vicinity of the obelisk, in a radius of approximately 100 meters, heat and oxygen become increasingly rare, leaving through the black hole. The closer one gets to the obelisk, the worse it gets. Further, all magic, except which is derived from negative energy, disappears within that radius. Undead appear unaffected by this; in fact, the obelisk seem to revigorate them. The library, being infinite in size, has an infinite supply of energy, and should not be destroyed.

Having more undead around kinda sucks, but voodoo magic doesn’t seem as bad as what the two necromancers do. Just try not to do it around our new recruits, they’re pretty big, eh? Born and bred to crush skulls. By the way, AAA, do we have access to your metal weapons? >Action 1: Send a detachment of Silverfish to aid the Spartan Wall Defenses in crushing the Zombie Horde. Bring 50 Breeders, 25 Weavers, and 25 Tauborn, with the leader wielding one of the Greatswords. The weavers will close in behind them, setting silken traps to harry and ensnare the mindless zombies. While they’re stuck, the crossbow-wielding breeders will blast them to bits, before the Tau and breeders with melee weapons charge in to finish them. >Action 2: Learning from your foes is integral. The Silverfish have taken note of how the Necromancers carve out artifacts and soulstones to permanently increase their natural capabilities. They ought to be able to do the same in some way, conceptually. After much thought, they discover a way to at least attempt it. The Silverfish have the ability to assimilate what they eat. So if they eat a silverfish, they’ll be assimilating their talent at assimilation. There comes a frenzy to consume dead bodies with vigor from now on, to ensure that they don’t fall into undead hands, and that their genetic potential is completely recycled. The Bugs attempt to improve their assimilation potential permanently, by practicing it regularly and multiplying its effectiveness by itself. >Acid blood, same as before. Now that they need bodies, however, they’ll evolve this in a way where corpses melt into a soup form upon death, which can still be gathered up, diluted, and drank to recover the dna within.
>>5261543Yes, you have access to our weaponry and the schematics for it, as do the Spartans.And we'll keep the Undead crab weaponry away from your boys.
>>5261092Communication to thadmancer. I suggest we share tech. I will give you steel tools and I would like knowledge of soulstones.
>>5261546Thank you very much. And to confirm it again, you have our crossbows. 32 isn’t bad, I guess, considering that they’re assaulting a fortification and we’ve got the RS bonus. QM, would I be right in assuming that Zombies are weaker in general, like the classic shambling dead? I kinda ran off the assumption that they were, as a sort of mindless horde, and the fact that they mass-convert upon killing things.
>>5261556Stats say thatt my forces have an average attack as well as these specific forces being more competent due to the staff of fell dominion. Also, how are you sending your forces past that river and my stone wall?
>>5261563It’s adjacent to our own wall, not parallel to it. And it’s a river, not a solid block of water. As we’re still in communication with the Spartans, it stands to reason we can access them in some way.
>>5261568I have four diffrent walls at each of the four entrances to the great wall. The one adjacent to you is the southern one and isn't connected to the eastern one I'm attacking. It would presumably cut off your access to the eastern part of the great hall.
>>5261608I guess we’ll see if the rolls bypass that then. Both of my walls have been completely useless in the past, to the point where a 52 roll caused them to be completely ignored like they weren’t there, and let PTE waltz into the heart of my territory. So I’m going to be pretty miffed if it’s treated that differently this time. If the interpretation of the wall is literally just a physical object, there’s not much stopping people from simply climbing it. Or in fact, just claiming the entire thing for themselves, because it’s right in front of their territory and the undead are far away. If it’s an actual defended location, with troops and guards, I guess rolls will sort it out like it did with the goblins.
>>5261608Hahaha, _-_AAA_-_'s have the secret ability "Fence Hopper", you fools. Your defenses are doomed!
>>5261616You would hope the QM would interept that a defensive structure like a wall would be manned by soldiers, thus actually serving its function. Also I think PTE only managed to get across since he was using a single unit with invisibility. A stone wall has no use if you the people manning it can't see the intruders their supposed to stop especially if it's a small amount.
>>5261686That was indeed what I hoped back when I spent actions to build it. But there was absolutely no mention of the wall’s existence, nor the guards, nor it adding any level of difficulty to the roll, coupled with the fact that ‘Opening a magic portal’ and ‘Sneaking past the wall’ was contained in the same action. So I’d expect the same to apply here, where going to help the spartan automatically means attempting to circumvent the obstacle at the same time.

If Thadmancer could supply suitably rare and powerful reagents then PTE could conjure forth an appropriately resplendent artifact for his comrade. In the meantime however, the necromantic enchanter voices his intention to create something which may help mend, and potentially even enrich, his host's tarnished soul. Maddeningly, the sorcerer refuses to elaborate further.>>5261549> Comm - PTE accepts your offer.>>5261092> Action 1, 2, & 3: Wandering to the center of the Thadmancer's Keep, PTE orders his golems to unload his entire remaining store of insect ichor. Focusing his formidable magical prowess through his Stave of Potence, PTE warps and weaves the ichor of several dozen insects into the shape of a crude, hulking throne - approximating a craggy texture complimentary to that of the stonework of the surrounding fortress - then solidifies the fluid mass into a crystalline material. Finally, the necromancer spends many days imbuing the throne with a complex series of intermeshing enchantments. The end result is a Repository of Quintessence, a mystical object which when interacted with in a particular way (in this case, when sat upon) will absorb the souls of the recently deceased within its broad proximity, then break them down into pure spiritual essence by exhaustively expunging all traces of identity, experience, and will from them. The Spiritual Essentia produced is then absorbed into the user, enriching and empowering their spirit. The key distinctions between Spiritual Essentia and Souls is that the former is *way* less magically potent than the latter (roughly 1/100th as potent), and that, unlike Souls, Essentia can be consumed in any amount without fear of spiritual corruption, ego destruction, or cognitive subversion. Through the consumption of exorbitant quantities of this Essentia, it is possible for one to enhance the quality of one's soul, and by extension their magical potential.

Behind their own puny wall of bookshelves, the insects are no match to the undead archers. The Tau paladin raises his greatsword, and it shines like the sun, blinding his foes, and making them screech in pain.

When attempting to cannibalize the bodies of an insect possessing greater assimilation, they find that the ability is not further developed, because it is the same original genetic material that is absorbed. Thus, the Silverfish attain maximum optimization of their genetic potential in terms of assimilation.>+greater assimilation [+1 RS]>Population: 790 Silverfish [breeder], 302 Silverfish [weaver], 267 Silverfish [Tauborn], 159 gnolls, 84 crabmen>>5262068PTE develops the theory of spiritual Essentia.

Further, Mira Mortis praises the idea, and compliments PTE as being a superior master. With this new knowledge, PTE develops the Repository of Quintessence, which absorbs the souls of the recently deceased, and extracts their essentia.

Their entire birth was in honor of a god, and the artifact is before them now, having proven its use in battle. They attempt to pray and get some form of response from Sol Magni. They beg for the God’s support, and their wish is for the people of the Library to be granted an afterlife. They will be loyal and follow the teachings of the god, but wish for the God to claim their souls and do what it will with them, rather than allow them to be sucked up by the undead. Action 3:>Reclaim the now-conquered wall. Thanks for the free stone, sucker.

There's no problem with the obelisk itself mind you - the glorified dimensional shunt is performing its function flawlessly - the problem lies with the landscape of the library itself, having apparently not been designed to survive adjacency with the cosmic headspring of conceptual and literal atrophy. Muttering darkly about the library's architect and his standards of structural integrity, PTE decides that the most sensible option available to him is to attempt to deactivate the artifact. Unfortunately the necromancer hadn't had the foresight to include a designated shutdown process into his creation - leaving little choice but to rely on the suboptimal option of interrupting the mechanism manually, while it was violently channeling a reality-rending quantities of energy. Upon pushing the system out of equilibrium, he'd need to delicately adjust and modulate the loops of magical energy to avoid the myriad of disastrous complications while simultaneously diverting and deescalating the Obelisk's output by increments, all in order to safely orchestrate a (relatively) controlled closure (collapse) of the Entropic rift. Naturally, such an grueling errand will require PTE's total, undivided concentration, so he settles in for the long haul - to diffuse a metaphorical bomb of his own making.

>>5263366MAJOR EVENTMarxism is one of the greatest threats to a civilization. It is more dangerous than a fire and a flood.“In its beginning it is easy to cure, but hard to recognize; whereas, after a time, not having been detected and treated at the first, it becomes easy to recognize but impossible to cure.” -Niccolò MachiavelliThe Communist Party develops in each civilization. The Spartans recognize the illness, and fight it will Socratic dialectics and intellectual enlightenment. The Talmudic materialism of Marxism is scorned, and the Communist Party disbands, in shame. The African Americans, learning from the Spartans, discover the pleasures of intellectual enlightenment, and likewise, disband their Communist Party. At the same time, they abandon their abusive usage of drugs, and abandon the practice of pimping and orgies.In the undead civilizations, the Communist Party grows in size, until it is strong enough to overthrow the government. The zombies and legacies unite, and slaughter all the aristocrats, landowners and businessmen of old. They share the brains and intestines between themselves, and have great feasts; the communist utopia promised to them in the Marxist pamphlets seems established. The Communist Party shows symptoms of being more authoritarian than the previous regime.>Phase 1 Marxism: gain a bonus to breeding and farming; take a penalty to technology and magic

When he returns, the Marxist militia arrests him for unlawful spread of feudal superstitions.The insects claim for themselves Thadmancer's southern wall. They fortify it properly with crossbowmen and guards, and set silken traps that make climbing the wall impossible. This means the only way to get past the wall is through the gate, or by flying over it.The Communist Party raids the throne room of the Hive Queen, but they are arrested by the African American counter-revolutionary militia.

The floor in the area surrounding the obelisk has no grown so unstable that it is made of floating islands; at any moment, the black fortress could crumble. He decides to disable the obelisk manually; a process that is extremely dangerous, for an overload of entropy could kill even an undead. He works slowly, disabling the obelisk's output by increment, and succeeds in disabling it. Within minutes, the temperature and oxygen levels go back to normal.PTE gathers his people in the courtyard to make a speech. The legacies yell obcenities at him. Formerly the revered mythical leader of the undead, he's now the number one enemy of the Communist Party. He notices that two golems are walking menacingly in his direction. Certainly, to arrest him.

We’ll be there.As for our actions: >Attempt to create a new breed, dubbed the Surrogate caste. The caste possesses a huge abdomen, with multiple wombs contained within. Unlike the egg-laying Silverfish, the surrogates give live birth and directly nourish young with their bodies. They can adjust their hormonal levels to regulate the womb-chambers, allowing them to raise batches of embryos from other species. Humans, first and foremost, and perhaps even livestock in the future, with minimal genetic crossover. The Surrogates are merely chambers to raise already fertilized eggs, and don’t contribute their own DNA.>After the fall of the communist regime, the Paladin is released from prison. It’s been a hard few months for him, but it helps to build his backstory, at the very least. He’s a War Hero who was wrongfully imprisoned for his beliefs, during a time of upheaval. The Tauborn returns to the temple to continue praying. One attempt is not enough. Religion is a commitment. And so, he spends his time there, hoping that their prayers reach Sol Magni, and that the God is out there listening, even if She doesn’t respond. Repeat the same action as last turn, hopefully it becomes easier/more likely with consistency. >Build a stone wall and gate setup around the Rift. The water will still be allowed to rush past in times of peace. However, a system will be installed where the holes can be plugged up to make a dam. This allows them to redirect the water and cause a flood that blasts through the gates, in order to clear them of ground-bound enemies who might assault them. Post a proper guard regiment around this new wall setup, with particular attention paid to the portal that things could emerge from.

We have been continuing to work on our bodies, in order to provide a method to increase the population of our AAA brethren. We would like to extend this to you as well, as it seems that the population of humans in the Library is dangerously low, and you’ve lost many good men in the battle for the wall.What we ask for in return is to borrow the genius of Aristonymos. It seems like we have caused some sort of Architectural Catastrophe, and our brightest minds predict that the ramifications will become visible behind me as soon as I finish delivering this message, in a show of prime comedic timing.

>>5264614MAJOR EVENTMuch of Marxist propaganda is dedicated to fighting counter-revolutionaries. The reason for this is that until the ancient regime has been exterminated, its remnants pose a threat to the Marxist regime. Hence, the Communist Party is dedicated to hunting down the mythical necromancers, and anyone who is loyal to them.Phase 1 Marxism: Thadmancer is captured. The Marxists bring him before Mira Mortis, attached to a table. Zombie surgeons excise his skull, and extract his brain. Following the instructions of Mira Mortis, the necromancer's brain is attached and fused with Mira Mortis.Phase 2 Marxism: In the Legacies civilization, the Marxist reign of terror and cultural revolution now begins. All elements of the old regime are thoroughly purged. Any hint of feudalism or necromancy is punished severely. Absurd laws and measures are taken, and the population begins to fear the Communist Party.>Phase 2 Marxism: Take a - 1 RS morale and inefficiency penalty to all actions. Eliminating Marxism is now a difficult action.

Man. Despite being enemies, I genuinely feel really fucking bad for PTE. He worked his ass off on the Obelisk (I mean, it was his fault, but still), which wasn't ENTIRELY self-serving, and then just comes back to an army of commies calling him a faggot. :( Gonna spend a bit of time to write up my action.

Sitting in a dark, damp room and feeding on woodchips and meat probably isn't the best for growing fetuses. We'll have to work on that... But hey, it works biologically!
Here's my proposed action 1 and 2:Presumably with the help of Aristonymos, construct a series of gates and ducts to redirect the flow of water. Firstly, the dam will be formed, allowing the water to build up like we attempted last year. This allows it to be released from the front gate. However, our goal this time is to release the huge amount of water into the Blood Swamp, and wash all of the blood away, directly into the pit itself. Like a fish tank's filter chamber, the blood will be sent down into the dungeon, until it can emerge from the rift in the Dam. At that point, the front gate will be sealed, and the rear gate opened. This allows the water to return to its natural flow, washing the bloody water into the Abyss and destroying the Blood Swamp as well as access to the Gorelings. We shall return the Great Hall to its original state. The Blood Swamp brings our alliance no benefits, and is a constant hazard.Any Objections to this plan, from my allies? If not, I'll write up my actual post and roll it. Third action will probably be either:-Sensory caste-Prayer related-Fixing the Surrogate process-acid blood/shell plague.

Feel free to take use of our staff for a turn, if you like. Plague research could backfire. I think creating a Sensory caste or further improving your Surrogates is a better bet. As for our 91 insane children we birthed together, I would like to keep them on our side of the compound, so they feel more encouraged to walk upright, and eat crab boils instead of dusty tomes.

The surrogates will be fed as closely as possible to the diet of what an actual human mother would be eating, of the culture that the baby is from. By treating the surrogate as a pregnant mother and not just a breeding machine, hopefully any sapient lifeforms that emerge won’t be stunted.

Drawing upon these raw materials and channeling magical energies seething with malice and vitriol, the Necromancer distorts his Scepter of Fell Command into a new form - an circlet of tarnished glass containing pulsating tangles of ethereal thread. The resulting artifact is a Wreath of Cognitive Arrogation, a tyrannical instrument which is specifically attuned to sentient creations of the user (specifically Legacies in this case). Passively, this mechanism constantly projects the user's consciousness into all valid targets, violently suppressing their native psyche and overwriting their autonomy, thereby reducing them into mere extensions of the user's will.> Comm - Before the Wreath of Cognitive is activated, PTE transmits a message into the minds of all renegade Legacies."If you cannot serve as reliable subjects then you shall be made useful in another way - Your envy of me shall be quelled, for there will be nothing left of you except for me."

>>5266126The goblins, having won the Olympic Games, take back home a shield crafted from Sumaru's crotch. A familiar voice resonates insides of the blood swamp. “I shall not tolerate this blasphemous mockery of my divine flesh. This time, all of your mortals are going to perish!”A ten meter tall, winged demon, with skin as black as night, materializes in the Great Hall. It flies over the Undead Fortress, toward the goblin territory. The is Hyu, the son of Shi, and Sumaru's elder brother. In mythological texts, Hyu is described as particularly sadistic, and enjoys killing living creatures from devilish traps.>>5264665The enlightened African American engineers develop enclosed cages from wood and scavenged metal. The cages can be lifted and moves with wooden poles.The well-learned African American doctors drag undead corpses from the blood swamp, and bring them to their camp. The only tool in their possession is the back scratcher won at the Olympics, which they repurpose as a scalpel. They discover that undead flesh is extremely vulnerable to fire, light, holy water, salt, and decapitation. Further, The African American elder vaguely remembers from Hollywood movies that undead should be vulnerable to werewolves.When ordered to dissect an orc, the doctors refuse, and declare that experimenting on one of their own is taboo.>>5264724Inspired by the USD in their possession, the humans develop the coin of bronze, with the effigy of their king sculpted on them. Soon, all humans want shekels. The most shrewd of them become merchants, buying goods for cheap, and selling them for high. From this process, most shekels end up in possession of the merchants, and they form a guild which has strong influence on society and politics. On the other hand, humans who are less shrewd work as wage slaves for the merchants, receiving a few shekels for goods that the merchants sell thrice higher. Some of the most influent merchants are rumored to worship a demonic entity named “Mammon”.
>>5266129>>5265053The Secretary of the Undead Communist Party, an unassuming zombie who is missing one arm, is the clear dictator of the undead nation. He has full control over the revolution, which follows the Marxist pamphets redacted by the Hyena Cabal and the Scribes. Mira Mortis had long dreamed of having this position, but instead has been enslaved by the party.The Undead Communist Party use recycled iron sheets to build four reservoirs of blood pools. They set those reservoirs in each of the corners of the Great Hall, and protect them with bookshelf fortresses and armed troops.>>5265160Engineer Aristonymos prolongs his vacations in the insect territory, and collaborates with the insect intellectuals and philosophers to reconstruct the aqueduc. This time, all travellers are stopped and searched for illegal possession of gun powder. One Marxist terrorist is arrested, but there are no other incidents. The construction is finished, and the insect open the northern gate. Pure elemental water floods into the filthy blood swamp, washing the putrid blood toward the central pit. On the floor below, the water flows toward the Deepwater Dungeon, and back into the Rift Portal. When the insects close the northern gate, and open the rear gate, the bloodied water flows toward the abyss, where it disappears forever. The bats that had made the swamp their home migrate away.Next, the insects revamp the nursery to be more supportive of the well-being of the younglings. A new generation of African Americans is born with the love and songs of the insects, and they grow up to be healthy. [Example of song: >>5266041] >>5265606The necromancer PathwayToEnlightenment prepares his counter attack against the Communist Party. He shall mind control his entire civilization, so that it can run as efficiently as in the past, under his full control. His sacrifices 9 of his loyal servants and incorporates their betrayed souls into a new artifact: the Wreath of Cognitive Arrogation. The wreath imprints his will onto his subjects, replacing their mind with a pseudo-mind, which works as a parasite and overwrites their autonomy. It is unknown if the Legacies enjoy or hate this operation, because their pseudo-mind expresses nothing but the orders of the necromancer. In the Ethereal Plane, it can be seen that tentacles emanate from the wreath and reach the core of all enthralled subjects.
