You are little white, a crystal dragon. A young one, hatched fourteen days ago.In your first day in this harsh word, you learn the necessary skills every dragon needs to survive, flight, fighting and breathing.You also specialized in strategy thanks to a cabinet filled with miniatures of soldiers from all the world's armies and a book detailling their forces and weaknesse; gifted reluctantly by your Mother.Your crystalline bloodline gives you natural affinity with light, wind and divination magic. Your scales immunize you to light and cold damages.You also accumulated significant riches, stored in your prized crystal necklace : an extraplanar space you can fill with your own things, allies, or even unwilling enemies after an arcanic push.Last time, you met your siblings, starting on a conflicting relationship. However, circumstances made you closer as you had to team up to survive the dreaded dragon hunter, which killed Father.What about Mother? Well, let's not talk about Mother.Now you have bounded as a pack with Little green, the hard headed and tough fighter emerald dragon, Little Purple, the cunning and tinkering Amethyst dragon and Little blue, your favorite, alchemy-gifted, fighting-deficient, mind-reader favorite sister.You luckily found really fast a location suitable for a lair worthy of your Pandraconium : a fallen dwarven hold, invaded with skavens, home of a Griffin and her three cubs.You drive out most of the skavens, with the help of chaos warrior you tricked to fight for you until their death, then become friend with the monster of the third floor.A vision granted you the knowledge of the skavens coming back for their outpost with a small army, so you recruited nearby humans to serve as canon fodder against the rat tide coming right for your lair.The humans are lead by a young noble, Hector known as the well endowed. Despite showing some greed and ambition, he managed to salvage a bad situation involving one of his men and the griffons which cohabitation harder than anticipated.While flying out for training your whole pack acrobatics and air dodge, you spotted the rat army, and took advantage of a strategic mistake to eliminate a jezzai sniper squad and take your own their riffle and a mighty ratmen artillery.
There are some loose ties, you dreamed of just yesterday.>The whole matter of your name. Name is part of a dragon's power and you didn't go through naming ceremony.

First thing you do upon reaching the hold is dropping the skaven's engine in the hold himself, near your lair, and refill your necklace with rocks for one airstrike.Then, priority will be using the rat's gear against themselves.In a last-minute attempt to increase your fighting capacities, you and your sister Purple attempt to teach the humans how to use the skaven's riffles.>14,13 for DC 12 : Two successesAll archers try to shoot a couple round with the riffle on targets. Most are not way worst with the unknown technological device than their dear bows, training marksmenship since they are around eight year old.However, two of your archers stand out being naturals. As accurate with the riffles than the bows, at targets higher distance. That won't make for month or years of training, but they are at least already used to ranged weapon fighting.>Two of the archers have been promoted to Jezzai Sharpshooters (2d20 on a target each)>Jezzai range: around twice the sling's; outrange the bows.>Trait : Neophytes. -2 to rolls made with that weapon.>Trait : snipers. Can point them to any unit in the army in range and try to get 'em, instead of random members of the pack>Do you assign the last riffle to another archer (-4 to rolls) or leave him with his bow?Ratmen are close. You can see their battle standards.Lead by some form you still can't discern on top of a bell mounted on wheels, and the big rat you didn't fought nor meet lead his own elite force, made of big soldiers with a fur as black as night in your parent's cave.There are two packs of sling-wielders, and one pack you didn't noticed before : weaklings, starving rats, merely standing up by themselves. Canon fodders.On your side, you have 13 archers and 5 soldiers lead by the one named Hector. You also have four wounded wyrmlings and one griffon.[time to explain how battles work : Each time one Regiment attack another, d100 are involved. Modificators are applied : 10 chaos warrior will have something like +35 against a single pack of rats.Exact rules will be subject to fine tuning, but engaging with a second pack on the rear or the flank will grant advantages.Pack can have a command group, made of a Champion, a Standard Bearer and a Musician.Champion is the mightiest opponent of the pack, such as the Rat that fled the hold. Musicians help with the coordination of the army while Standard bearer increase moral. Standard bearer are hard to get down as another one can just pick up the flag.Elite troops, such as your Jezzai Sharpshooters, will resolve their actions using d20. A key factor of the battle is Moral : Heavy damages on one pack will make them take a leadership test; a demoralized pack might flee the engagement]>Roll Strategy for the battle plan (DC is 15 but clever write-in will decrease it)
Rolled 6 (1d20)>>5343838>White will fly far up and out of range and begin his first bombing run on the more elite rats. It wont be really accurate but if we murder the stronger rats the slaves will break more easily. With a lucky shot we might be able to take out the Boss.>Snipers try and gun for the Packlord>Bowmen use your range and elevation advantage to pepper the enemy>Hector hold the Entrance together with Green and Purple>Blue keep in reserves to either help with remocing casualties from the frontline and treating them or using her breath>Do not assign the last Rifle to another archer. That will only be a cause for disaster if the Thing explodes.

Rolled 1 (1d20)>>5343838
Rolled 20 (1d20)>>5343838It looks like the skaven army is traveling through the base of the valley, using the natural terrain to reach us. We can take advantage of this by having little green use his Geomancy to harry the incoming army sith rockslide to kill them. Being green himself he should be well enough camouflaged from their snipers, and the rock slides he be more or less able to hit them since they're confined within the spaces of two valleys. Better yet, if Green is fast enough, he could cause an avalanche in front of the army, and behind or in the middle of it. That would briefly box the skaven army in, and cause them to slow down and force March through rough terrain, which would mean they can be picked off by our snipers as they're delayed, and they will have to abandon their war machines or else get sniped!Give the last bowman the sniper. When the skaven army reaches normal ranges to utilize the bow, then all snipers can switch to bows.Until the Skaven reaches Jezzai Sharpshooters range, Little White is to use divinitation to determine what the officers within the army looks like. The snipers are then told to target said officers for the purpose of damaging enemy morale and cohesion.All Jezzai Sharpshooters are to continue firing their rifles until the skaven army reaches bow shooting range, to which they will then switch to rely on the bows which they are more proficient with.For Hector he I'd to organize the snipers and bowmen to ensure group cohesion.If we successfully box in a portion of the skaven army within the valley, or at least kill a bunch of their leaders to reduce group cohesion, all dragon siblings and griffin can go in for a synchronized dice attack with Little White at the fore front to tank all the sttacks utilizing wind Shield, then dump ALL his rocks on the enemies.
>>5343907>hurray not death!>>5343851Maybe we can combine a bit of both plans? I dont know how long divinitation takes, but maybe Little While can do his rock bombing runs as Little Green boxes the enemy army in, or maybe something else?Wait these guns explode? Ah who care.
>Strategy : 20A mix of common sense and divination magic bring you a clear vision of the beginning of the battle to come.Sending forward the weaklings, the elite troops pack will walk behind their meatshield; both groups holding wooden ladder.The slingshoters will open in arc on the west and east flank of the melee fighters. The west pack will use a rocky ridge as an impromptu coverage while the east pack will walk while out of range to position directly on the east of the hold. The real menace remains the bell rider; your visions indicate magics such as turning the sling stones into unhealthy green things with a nasty smoky trail.You see several path in your vision; one where you get shot down by the pellets and one where they fail to reach you thanks to your windshield; allowing full aerial supremacy only contested by the priest sickening arcana.You also see the ridge collapsing, trapped by green's geomancy.Good thing your vision indicated that.>2 anons roll me 1d20 for green; DC 12 thanks to the crit revealing exact location to sapper>Also, still waiting on tiebreak for giving or not the riffle

They gotta show us how jerky is made, or we get a human to do that for us.Come on Green. You got this.

I assume when next turn arrives that will mean the ladders are set up and they will begin ascending, which would mean we our archers and Lancers would have to deal with melee combatants, which is bad.If that is not the case, and when next turn rolls around the skaven slaves will only p r e p a r e to scale the walls with the ladders, the ballistas are to target the eastern slinger pack.

>>5344923I thought it might help break their morale. They might have expected the Dragons and Griffons to kill each other. Realizing that not one set of young Apex Predators but an Adult Griffon were residing in here peacefully with each other might have helped break their morale. And be honest what else could the Griffon do here? Not try anything?
>>5344927It's a fucking Griffin. It could attack, and the enemies make their own morale checks to determine if they fail or not if we kill enough of their leaders.
>>5344937>It could attack,And get shot down by several dozen Stones to the Face.But the Plan is set now. We can send it out later if nothing goes wrong to majorly. To be honest i would have liked to have this discussion hours ago when it was still relevant. I could have used some more input.
>>5344943I was asleep then. Well if anything I dont see why our Lancers can just kick the ladders over.
>>5344984[For the same reason ladder were historically used : it's freaking hard to push one down. To do so, you'll need to push it at more than 90°; and assaulters were not retards and put them around 1.5 meters away from the wall so defender need to push 3 meters. Some specialized tools exist for that purpose but you don't have any of that available.]
>>5345042Do they have some form of spikes or Anchors at the top that stop them from just being pushed to the side to topple over?>>5344984Otherwise we might have to grab the ladder with a dragon that then jumps out and away from the battlements to drag the ladder with them and then just continue flying after we dealt with most of their archers

>>5344831>13 : One. partial successGreen takes a deep breath and a rain of slashing death runs along the ladder. One of the slaves get literally cut in half. Alas, at the second he stops to get some air, an agile weakling runs on all four on the ladder, and step right on the second floor of the hold.>Human reaction : 2The lancer are frozen in fear.

A shriek ending in a strangle coughed, results of the ray wound suffered a few hours earlier. Wound clearly visible and bleeding a bit. The emotions of the rats are clear and submerge you.Weaklings.

One successIt was a bright idea targetting the ladders. Among the specific breath kinds of your siblings, Green's wind blade turns to be the most effective, splitting the ladder in the middle like Ogres' chopsticks. Your sister's breath, although more controlled, are less effective and only manage to flip down the ladders. It will buy a little time, but not much more.On the bright side, Purple's and Blue's ladder flipping have dealt some damages to the climbing rat. On green's side, they used the pole to slide down, unscathed.>>5345549>Sniper : Failure>>5345549>Griffin : Critical failureYou ordered troops to concentrate on the wizard.

>>5345584>Momma did not raise no quitter. Momma did not raise nothing, so maybe Pops did not raise no quitter?Mom can fuck off, dad was the only role model we needed.>>5345592Gonna add onto this. If all the skaven that are on the second floor have been killed, all able bodied humans are to man the ballistas (only as many as needed) and focus fire all three ballistas on the bell. If the bell goes down, the snipers target the commander, else they will target the bell.If the first or second ballista successfully destroys the bell, the third is to target the leader.Also tell the Griffin parent to send their kids to us so we can carry them to safety as well if things go sideways.Regarding our siblings, besides us our sisters are good sith ranged attacks. Little Green should be delegate to defending the second floor, and holding over water against more attempts to use ladders. His Dragons Breath only has a DC of 10 to kill and disable all ladders and their users. Which is really fucking good.
>>5345597Oh right yeah. Definetly ammending my vote >>5345584Instead of >>5345592>Green support the GriffonMake that>Green destroy further ladders>>5345597And yeah. Dad was a real Role Model.

Rolled 3, 18, 2, 17, 18 = 58 (5d20)>>5345605>Snipers : 1 successA well aligned shot. The cursed platform flinched and collapsed, the priest crushed under the weight of the bell he was riding in an ill-omen sound between the bell's "Doooong" and a tunnel collapsing. >Griffin : one successHer target out of sight, the mighty beast redirected her attention on the blackfur behind her. Easy prey, distracted by the loss of the general.

His two companions, manning the second ladder, impaled and repelled one of the slaves.>>5345619> Ballista : critical failureThe scared human reorient the ballista from the fallen bell to the slingers. But one of them, his pants still wet from terror, released his bolt early. Way too early.

>>5345731okay.... at least the Slaves broke. If we destroy the Ladders we can make sure that we are close to unassailable if the enemy has no more slings or magic.>>5345752Sniper Targets. I assume the Blackfurs now do not really have their Meatshilds anymore so are normally vulnerable to Sniping their Command Squad now. >So target their Command Squad with the last two Jezzais>Blue continues fighting the Slingers to keep them disorganized>Purple helps out the defenders on the Second Floor with her Breath Attack. SInce its a Magic MIssile it should help not just blow our own people away.With Green destroying the ladders the rats hopefully will no longer be able to climb up to us and just leave since we then hold the range Advantage.Anyone else any ideas?
>>5345758i was thinking maybe instead of firing the Ballistae we just have the two fighters up in the front to murder the rats that got up there while green destroys the Ladders.
>>5345758>Anyone else any ideas?More rifles?
>>5345884[I don't get your point at all... You are in the middle of a battle, the rifles were looted on all rifled unit, you break one and you lack humans able to wield them]
>>5345884sadly one broke...... so we only have two left. WE have a Siege Engine... but yeah..... >>5345890shit did we dump the engine first before loading in the humans?Please tell me we did..... no yes we should have since we had stones in the necklace that went wide when we got blasted from the Sky.
>>5345897oh yeah my point >>5345884We have no knowledge how to use it. So yeah. Rather not risk that one misfiring and exploding in our faces.Maybe keep it as a last resort and fling the core into the blackfurs and use Dragonbreath to blow it up... hopefully.
>>5345752White tries to use Pressence to calm down the panicked Lancer? Speech? Turn his fear and panic into hatred towards the skaven. If successful, 2 ballistas target the leader, and the other ballistic targets the black guards.Snipers: if the ballistas succeed in targeting the last leader, switch to bows since those are safer, if not then keep using the rifles to target leaders.Everything else is good.So how many humans are dead, and how many are simply too wounded to fight?>>5345758I think we should keep our sisters focused on the slingers so ranged attacks dont kill us or the Griffin. If they prematurely finish their attack, then can then focus fire on black guards or any remaining rats on the second floor. That's my take.>>5345897I think we dumped the siege engine somewhere.
>>5345940okay. sounds good. i was thinking that we might clear the upper ramparts from Skaven but you make a good point as well. >>5345731So yeah. QM.>So target their Command Squad with the last two Jezzais>Blue and purple continue fighting the Slingers to keep them disorganized>White tries to use Pressence to calm down the panicked Lancer? Speech? Turn his fear and panic into hatred towards the skaven. If successful, 2 ballistas target the leader, and the other ballistic targets the black guards.>Snipers: if the ballistas succeed in targeting the last leader, switch to bows since those are safer, if not then keep using the rifles to target leaders.
[Nice plan. However the ballistas and bows cannot shoot immediately under the wall, where the slaves stay safe from projectile.Sniper can shoot at blackfurs by climbing on third floor but being really exposed to slingshoters. Said slingshoters are a bit busy right now though.The part where white tries to calm down the broken soldier is a nice find.]
>>5345988okay.... then we fire the Ballistas at the Blackfurs and the Bows at the Slingers.That should work as well.
>>5345988So ballistas and bows cannot target the commander and the black furs because they are right next to the walls with the slaves? Then we can target whatever group is within their range.Snipers are still expected to target leaders until leaders are dead, to which they will them switch to bows and arrows for safety reasons.If all slingers are dead, and all skaven on the second floor are dead, all defenders (archers, lancers, snipers, Hector) are free to grab skaven corpses and YEET them over the edge for the purpose of killing the enemies with the corpses of their allies to break morale.Next turn if White, Siblings, and griffin are free, would could try going for a group intimidation check. Just a suggestion.

Snipers are to abandon their weapons in favor of the reliable bows to aid in the killing.The griffin will kill as much as it can.Hector and the lancers will kill the slaves or force them to surrender.

>>5346121I JUST WANT TO KILL! But I agree that Blue should stay to heal while we pass out. At least have Green and Purple go out to maim the rats? Hector and the Lancers should be enough to defeat 6 rats.

>>5346159Agreed, but siblings and griffins target remaining slingers before targeting black furs to ensure no ranged attacks can retaliate. They should all kill for as long as they think they can reasonably manage before coming back to rest.Everyone is going to need some healing salve so we at least start the next day with +2 health, for White at least. If our siblings and the Griffin still has energy left today, they can go about collecting all the skaven corpses for looting, and bugging the humans on how to make jerky. Slings might sell for a bit in bump, but the bell and the wargear from the black guard is where the money is at. Same with their biggest guy who we killed.The day tomorrow we'll need to ferry the dead back to town, but also maybe host a victory party to stabilize the morale of the humans. We could probably just use whatever money the skaven had on them, or just sell a few of their weapons. Easy.
>>5346203I just hope that the Humans will be fine. I would guess that most have broken bones that we should be able to fix unless they have internal bleeding then only Helaing Magic will help them.

Other are still alive, most looking like they will make it.>10 archers recovering.>You have 9 balms. Using one balm one a human drastically increase the recovery chances.>Balms can not be used on the dragons or griffin wound as they are internal, energetical-based>Recovery of wound takes longer for non-draconic life forms.>Assuming you will use all balms on archers, roll me 1d100+40 for the balmed human, and 1d100+10 for the unlucky one>Your siblings, barely grazed, are scooping everything valuable back to the hold.>Roll 1d100 for lootThe still-well human answered Purple's inquiry about creating jerky. As they have nothing better to do while their village pal recover, they help her set up smoker and work the ratmen meat. You feel their disgust, at the idea of eating anthropomorphs, eating rats, and mutilating corpses. A few of the vermin are left alive for the Griffin's cellar. There were some tensions around the impaled lancer's corpses, but human managed to unpin him and bring him in the hold's safety for carrying back to the village.
Rolled 65 + 40 (1d100 + 40)>>5346839Yeah we will use the Balms on the humans. And once we recovered some we can use Healing Magic.
Rolled 30 + 10 (1d100 + 10)>>5346839All balms on humans.White should inform them that they should look at it from our point of view. If they cows and they ate grass, and the grass talked back to you, how would you feel?Skaven are mostly impolite jerks, but we eat them more out of necessity. Not unless there's a magic bread farm. Speaking of ask them if there is a way of rehydrating meat so we can combine meat with bread? Absolutely revolutionary!
>>5346855Aight. I propose White sticks to light duties and naturally heals, but uses his one healing to heal the unlucky human to full health. White could read more of his strategy book to pass the time, or practice pressense by becoming a socialite with the humans. That's my suggestion at least. Paired with friendly and we not opposed to healing humans, and having a pre-existing rapport with the humans, I think improving his standing wont be too hard. Me thinks two separate DC's for rolls: one for socializing and one for exp gain?
>>5346856Sounds good for a plan. But i think the socializing will give us Xp naturally
Rolled 16 (1d100)>>5346839Loot?
>>5346855maybe also bring up that we need to eat meat and would rather not hunt the local deer and other animals to extinction. If that were to happen then we would have to range farther for prey and we do not want to step on the toes of Humans and other Races by plundering their wildlife reserves and animals.So as distasteful as it is the Skaven are the better way until we manage to find a sustainable alternative.
>>5346875We should probably use what little clout we earned from this battle, in addition to some of the spoils of war to set up a frameworks of a farming community nearby. Farmers develop crops, crops get recycled or eatened by farm animals, farm animals shit and fertilize the crops. Rinse and repeat.I monster want farms for pigs since they're easy to please. Pigs and maybe goats. If the farmers are smart they might know some useful agriculture techniques. Failing that we could be them via magic to make food last longer or take longer to spoil (i.e. artifical giant magic cooling box/fridge).
>>5346940well we are in the woods. if they are more of the leaf kind instead of needles there should be loads of nuts and fruits that the Pigs can eat during the Summer and Autumn so less crop production would be needed.With Goats we would have to be careful. if the walls are not angled enough they could just walk out of their coop.... but they eat a lot of different foods and give Milk and Wool that can be used by the Farmers.And those animals will have to get used to the Draconic Presence that we have. Otherwise they will likely panic quickly and die of stress.
>>5346942For run away animals we'll need several Shepard's dogs and a single shepard.
>>5346963yeah thats kind of a given since we will likely need several coops and pens for enough animals to feed four dragons and a family of griffons. But it could be a very useful tool for Empire Building in the future. If we become accepted and the Griffons are cooperative we might amass enough interest to allow us to petition to become an imperial City whose main Export is Griffon riders and helpful Dragon Crafts.

The balms and oil should prevent festering for now. Good. Turning your attention to the less lucky human...>>5346855You feel some blood poisoning.

As you're healing him early, the cost of energy to clean his blood and body from the corruption, tainted in your eyes in the same green hue than the skaven's artillery shots, is seemless.Next, the Griffin. With heavy internal damages, you focus your efforts in not repairing the bigger damage but bringing most tissues closer. With only a few days of complete rest, she'll be as good as new. >Critical : With energy left, you can try again, this time on yourself...>2d20: DC 13

>>5347194Cant really do anything besides waiting to be older, or doing magic research. Probably. Still three attempts even if it's just a crit is impressive in my books.
Directing the energy excess toward yourself, you try improving your condition... >>5347179>>5347181But you've overestimated yourself.Hector is knocking at your door, alongside the only competent warrior of his little troup."Excuse me, ... I still don't know how to call you... How are you feeling? I've come to discuss important matters. Let me introduce you Guillot. You see my dear, Guillot is my minstrel. I do the whole errand knight thing : bravery, prowess, wooing the ladies, and my good Guillot here record and makes songs.Yesterday was a tale of bravery, such a story will be sung thousands time. Such a good song come with influence. And we have several propositions about how we'll tell that story">Emphasis on the human's prowess. Griffin and Dragons are mentioned only as landmark name, if ever mentioned.>Emphasis on the Mighty beasts. How mythical creature built a moat on the way of a dangerous vermin army to protect a small human settlement.>Emphasis on cooperation. How improbable alliance granted a victory against an enemy with four times the men."There is also the matter of our dead and wounded. We'll need to get back as soon as possible to the village, so fathers can bury their sons and mother cry for them. You were right. The blood toll was inexistant thanks to your help.">Send back all humans to the village>Keep the most wounded archers in the fort, in case you can speed up their recovery

It is not every day you get to lay waist to an army four times your size. Feel pride for your selves and fellow comrades. >>5347323Nah fek em', we deserve recognition.
>>5347331Just worried about Slayers hearing about not one but four young drakes raising hell. But eh, we can always run again, and with windshield it's pretty tough to stop us.
>>5347423Yeah, plus if we build up a great enough rapport, the dragon slayers will get all iffy trying to kill humans who actually want to protect some dragons. We might even get a chance to capitalize and kill them. We'll certainly have plenty of time to recover, and this battle has earned us a nice sum of EXP.I think continuing to deal with humans, heal their infirm, and possibly teach those that are worthy and empathic how to ride hippogriffs.
>>5347316supporting >>5347323I would rather few people learned about us right now.Also we might want to offer to give the most healthy people a lift in our amulet back to their village it would be quicker and safer.And we could check if we can help them a bit. The Old Woman is gonna die soon if we can not help her and the other people could use some help so that the humans might be willing to help us with melting down the weapons into bars.

>>5349124yes it does. Dice though should not get tired.

The mentally challenged girl must be repaired and act as the first inhabitant of a future town where providers will be dedicated to making your life easier, at the cost of becoming a bigger and more interesting target for raiders.Is fine as a second preference. I'd prefer the lair since buffs to us would presumably improve our healing and divination, which improves our ability to acquire other things and endur hardships. And our healing is a great tool for trade and goodwill building.
>>5350175>Helpers. The mentally challenged girl must be repaired and act as the first inhabitant of a future town where providers will be dedicated to making your life easier, at the cost of becoming a bigger and more interesting target for raiders.Treasure will come naturally, if nothing else from the simple fact that there are precious few things who could stop four dragons from nicking their shit.

>>5350181>>5350306>>5350310IMO we should level up arcana a bit first to increase our level cap for magic, and be able to level up Healing since our ranks of healing is capped by our current Arcana level. Then we can spam healing as much as we want.

catching up on quest, read a comment that irritated me tons.>>5332271>Im kind irritated that you previously mentioned her being “a child trapped in an older body” not “retarded” as in your last post, there is a big difference between the two.it means the same thing, it is the original definition-- "stunted". usually used now as an insult as "mentally stunted"

>>5351287>op says she's literally me>op then clarifies he meant she's mentally retardedI'd be mad, too
>>5351287First, stunted doesn’t necessarily need to be in an insultative way, since being developmentally stunted is also just a more common way to describe the more complex problem of a person becoming unable to function as an adult while physically being the age of one.And second, no???? I literally described in the message right underneath the difference between beting developmentally stunted and retarded. Retarded people are unable to think about why something is, and just get confused and irritated when something doesn’t come out the way they want it to.(Kind of like how you’ve made her act as of yet with the fighting back at the village)Developmentally stunted people are instead ones which can, while not understanding a situation, able to act upon it and try to work with What they have.A Good example:Two girls are in front of a man, one of them is developmentally stunted and one is retarded.The man talks about his day, and talks about being angry at his boss for making him do over time.The retarded one, get’s annoyed, for he is raising his voice and to the girl that is irritating, she doesn’t know why he is doing it.The developmentally stunted girl is trying to calm him down, she doesn’t understand why he is angry, But she understands that it is not Good for him to be.The developmentally stunted one doesn’t fully get the situation, the retarded one is unable to work with it to begin with.You get What my point is in making a distinction?

Secondly would be even be capable of such comparably fine detail work? So far Little Green hasn't exactly been the subtle sort and lastly...How on earth would wind catch, latch onto, and be made to spin by a rifled barrel?
>>5352460>>5352512 The best thing i could imagine would be a pressure gun by taking inspiration from the Jezzais. But rifling would probably be outside Greens perview even if he knew what that meant. Most mortal empires probably would not even know of rifling for barrels

You flap your wings, raising in your temple until you reach daylight. Then, you flicker your scale's taint, turning yourself as azure as the skies.

Or become an entertainer specialized in light shows. Maybe you can get your sisters to dance?Anyway. You can see the invaders as they can see you. A group of warriors clad in blue, white and gold.

>>5356769From what little I remember about Warhammer, Dwarves hate dragons, but elves more or less like them. They referred to Little White as "young sire" which means theres some amount of respect the elves have towards him, and I doubt they would lie as their massive pride would prevent them from using such tactics. Still, they are new faces, and they haven't tried hitting White with spells or arrows.>Write-inStrangers be strangers, but so far these guys seem polite. Theres too many of them for us to ferry, but we can take their leader and a bunch of them back to our fort so we can talk more.

>>5356803So I would caution against drawing 1-1 comparisons between Fantasy and this quest, just so that OP can actually do his own thing without feeling pressured to do otherwise. That said Warhammer dwarves don't really hate dragons as they consider them either a monster burning their shit, or a pet of the elves...Whom they do hate with a passion. As for warhammer high elves yes they would lie. It's not even a question, the high elves arn't really the dainty holier then thou type. Much more like old Athens, "The strong do as they can, the weak suffer what they must" holier then thou types. >>5356772I second this, but I don't think we have telepathy? Do we?
>>5356842i think that is how we communicate with everyone.We have that Shared Mental picture so it might not be complete telepathy but apparently we could feel these people show up. so some psionic potential is definetly there.>>5356803look i would trust an elf around as far as i can throw them to not try every trick under the sun to try and get their way. (Probably means that they want us as their ser i mean allies. Yes. Absolutely no magically enforced servitude at all here.)
[Your telepathic bound is short range, and work only with other dragons. This is why I'm trying to add an accent each time you communicate with the humans. However, if you want to warn your siblings, this is a perfect application of your wind magic. If one or more anons confirm, I'll make you roll for it]
>>5357010pretty sure >>5356842was also for it. he was just unsure that we could communicate with them.If we can use our wind Magic then sure. Lets at least try it.
Ok. Give me 3d20 wind magic.[You don't get the 4d arcana just yet. This will be a choice for later...]

Your sharpen Presence pick up "he confirmed there's several of them" and "we can't afford to fight them in their lair".And they start charging at you. You scoff. Ants wanting to fight an eagle? And then, they start walking on the air. This is not funny anymore."Young sire, we're taking you with us. Don't resist, this is for your own good. Don't make us hurt you."
>>5357738They have chosen violence....LMAO>spam flashbang until they suffer permanent deafness and blindnessWe know about the name game you deceitful mortals!

Would be a real shame if we fed them to a griffin. Real damn shame.

If you can not state what you intend then you make yourselves enemies.">Use Wind Magic to try and blow the elves away while you fly back to your lair and call your siblings for help. >Try and use your mastery over light to blind the elves.>>5357754yeah..... attacking a Dragon that was willing to talk to you before at least offering them something is pretty stupid i feel.....typical Elf arrogance. We should not let them get close to our hold. so that if some of them manage to get away they will be useless for future invasions
>>5357757They rolled poorly. Sucks to be them I guess.
>>5357764yeah. i kinda not want to murder them. just defend ourselves. These elves definetly have some magic power and i would rather not make enemies of them. Just make it clear that we are not some naive Chicks that will let themselves be taken just like that.

>>5359066ammending my vote from >>5359073>>5359077to support >>5359080which i greatly approve of.
>>5359083>>5359066I thought of something but wanna get simevopinions. Green suffers from boss to babu ally syndrome, and his Tough magic skill has been found wanting. Perhaps if we invested heavily into agriculture for the purpose of producing magic dense mana potions, Little Green might be able to try using Tough more than once a day?
>>5359109we can try it. Could there be such a crop that concentrates Mana?Maybe the Lizardmen could have something like that. In fantasy they had a lot of Geomancy as far as I can tell.
>>5359110Could work, might not exist. You do bring up a good point about the lizard folk, ap it's only a matter of finding them. Of course there are these elves here too and they seem proficient in magic.If anything, maybe we can use our knowledge to make money, convince farmers to live in our domains, and make money for us? For the purpose of increasing our magical capacity.Still wanna see if we can combine our four dragon breaths into something weird though. Maybe we have to make poses? Stand on top of each other?
>>5359111>Maybe we have to make poses? Stand on top of each other?So like Power Rangers Style? Then we need a fifth Member for our Group.For the Idea with the Farmers. I think i said something about that some time ago where we can use them to creat a sustainable Foodsource with Meat and Wheats as well as People that would like to do things for us like either Research about Places where we can loot Stuff or gain more Knowledge. Capable Agents, even a small City should be within our grasp if we offer our healing powers to Noble and or rich people. Mortals are the future and will probably one day rule this world. We should be progressive and make ourselves indispensible. Like Lofwyr with Sader Krupp. https://shadowrun.fandom.com/wiki/LofwyrBuild our own business Empire
>>5359119>Shadowrun>Purple in change of facility defenses and corporate dealings>Green in charge of corp sec and military affairs>Blue in charge of manufacturing and R&D>White in change of social affairs and a little magicNice. I like the Shadowrun setting, it's fun. Dunno how our siblings would feel about letting mortals rule, but being vital components to society (preferable worshiped as opposed to being made as slaves) would be something they could agree on. Maybe once we finish with the immediate issue of these elves, then heal all the injured within the Village, we could work towards making the Fortress more habitable again. Then we could convince the villages to move in.We could even make a rudimentary wooden wall out of chopped down trees, then expand with our borders. It wont keep the skaven out, but it would keep the wild animals at bay.From there we work on being self sufficient with the farmer like ya mentioned.
>>5359121oh yeah that is what i wanted anyway. Create a safe environment and get the humans to move in. Then use the humans to expand. We will life for a long time but we are only so many as Dragons. For every Dragon there must be thousands of humans and more of any other race on top of that. We are hideously outnumbered and while Dragonslayers are not particularly common a Thousand Pesants with Crossbows would bring down a even an Adult Dragon easy.So using Soft Power of persuasion and MONEY to convince the Monkeys it is better to serve us than try to Lord over us, is the way to go. Even Green would probably agree... Though i would not make him head of any real department aside from maybe security. With a lot of capable advisors... He is not too bright sadly.
>>5359121>Purple in change of facility defenses and corporate dealingsWe will go for the eco Win i take it then.

>>5359121>I disappear for a day and this happens. And it is glorious!Quick thing tho: you generally didn't have large populations living inside forts, the fact that its a *fortress* makes that remarkably inconvenient, instead they, especially later medieval ones, had two very important purposes which our hold will and can serve very well:The first is logistics, boring but true. A lot of material, trained soldiers, food etc in a fortification means you can survive the guys fucking around outside the walls really can't without a long supply train, which enables!You can leave the fort, attack something, raid a village, burn a supply caravan and then go back inside where you are safe, and the bad mans can't get to you. The Hold itself won't be the primary benefit of us having it, it'l be the fact there four fucking dragons can exert influence over a wide area where everyone else will be comparatively vulnerable since we can come and go as we please and they'd need to defend everywhere, at all times, or get picked apart.That said we are going to either need to expand it, massively, or find a replacement comparatively soon because our little pack won't stay the size of dogs for very long.
>>5359358>That said we are going to either need to expand it, massively, or find a replacement comparatively soon because our little pack won't stay the size of dogs for very long.So we should try and train Greens Geomancy more so he can expand the Mountain and possibly the halls as we grow?
>>5359358Yeah what other anon said. Green's geomancy, and White's potential to make Crystal's might become more prevalent in the future (mostly Green's magic) for the purpose of expansion and fortification. Green would be idea to digging up minerals and ad-hoc tunnels, or possibly compacting tunnels enough where we can put in support beams, in addition to generally molding stones like clay. White could potentially utilize crystals for utilitarian and aesthetic purposes acting as support beams, additional cover, bomb as chandeliers. At least until he learns how to make permanent crystal formations. White and Green will probably do most of the manual labor, while Blue and Purple will do the brainy work needed.In terms of expansion, me things that the surrounding forests needs to be cut down, and the stumps uprooted. If nessassary we could try making an improvised lumber operation for cutting down trees. For actual 2x4 lumbers and stuff we'd need a watermill for the water powered saw, but I doubt theres enough room to maneuver big ass tree logs down to the basement where the underground water is. Instead, the lumberjacks trees could instead be used to make GOOD OLD LOG HOMES. No idea about roofing, but solid log homes will probably be the way to go for our initial settlers. Forget about my idea of making log walls though. We could probably make a walkable and defendable stone/Crystal wall around the fortress, and around a few acres of land around our cozy hill/fortress/lairs.
>>5359367I cant stop imagining Green playing with rocks like they're playdoo and getting it everywhere.>big colorful dwarven fortress, but expanded places is made of veins of gold and iron. It's not even refined, literally veins of precious metals cuz, Green: "pretty colors swirly. Green is best."Still love our slow bro tho
>>5359390Well uprooting the trees should be pretty easy if we use some geomancy to soften the Earth and then have the two dragons pull the stumps out. The Log Home idea for a start is an interesting one. I would go a bit farther. Go grab some Clay/Dirt to make some half timbered houses wo safe on wood for more important constructions and half timbered stuff is still pretty well insulated for the Short term. For the Roof i would say either fired Clay Shingles or maybe Reed if we have enough reeds close by. Maybe even wood Shingles>Pic related

>>5359943Looks like that 20 is all we're getting. Better than no success I say!
>>5359394Speaking of uprooting, I wondering if there is some way that White can duplicate the magical effect of his necklace, so it can house greater volumes of whatever he puts in there. Instead of a 3x3x3 meter space, what if he could instea fit as much as 20x20x20? Maybe a small home? I bring this us because if White could increase the volume of his personal pocket dimension, we could forgo the weeks to months long process of building homes to instead simply uproot entire homes from the small town and move them here, turning months of labor into just a days worth of juggling buildings.
>>5359936A comparatively small number of highly proficient people constantly searching for new means of protecting themselves against a hostile world, because they're paranoid over being wiped out. Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, does this not seem like something we should *really* keep the back of our heads? Because to me that is a society ripe with possibilities as long as we have the force required to offer them this safety.
>>5360005Do your telling me, we should try to make us rule the elves?
>>5360024We're a dragon. We're supposed to be greedy.
>>5360002that will likely be pretty difficult. The Amulet is from dad who was quite a bit more powerful and knowledgeable than us.But with time? We can probably replicate the effect at least. Though Moving buildings will be difficult unless we can uproot their foundations as well. Without those they would just collapse. Though we are dragons we can play the Long Game with Months and years slowly building up to something.
>>5360080If we had enough Humans, and Green was able to soften up the foundations a bit, we could have maybe a hundred humans lift and carry one of their homes back to our domain amish style. That is to day, only small homes. Maybe if we delved more into magic, we could make some like of levitation flat platform to slip under houses to make it easier to carry back? Jeez, I can only hope that's a thing. Our dergs arent even 1 year old, so that's probably not gonna happen. Eh, we should probably start with clearing out trees and building walls first before we consider getting villagers. Not everyone (humans) can or wants to stay in a dwarven fortress.
>>5360289You mean not even twenty days old, right?
>>5360298>Not three weeks old and already planning on seizing an entire nation. Dragons are awesome.
>>5360307not two weeks old. Weeks in this world have ten days. And yes. Dragons are awesome. Specifically if they get controlled by a somewhat well meaning Hive of people.
>>5360310Damn hobbits and their second tuesdays.
>>5360298need big tittied tomboy followers with the fattest milkers.I'm talking chest udders.
>>5360298Instead of Blue harvesting her own herbs, would it be possible to get a human to do it for her? The human would get payed for their work, and the balms would be saved in times of war or sold to the herbalists/doctors in peace times. That's a good way for her to expand her horde!Idea! In regards to building walls, the sisters can use their powerful breath attacks to shatter boulders and quarries, white can carry said rocks too and from the designated wall building piles, and Green can use his MIGHTY BABY GEOMANCY to mold the rock piles into might walls, that are at least wide and thick enough for 5 humans to run side by side with each other. That'd be wide enough to place ballistas on!
>>5360298Also I forgot to ask, but would Whites Friendly trait play into any of this when we met the elves? Did ya forget?
>>5360883We met on hostile terms and left with demands toward them. So i kinda doubt that. We will have to soothe them into at least neutrality for the trait to work again i think
>>5360895Pretty sure that one is for "first contact" only, and we've already had that. So it's not gonna do much more with that flavour of elf. >>5360576Unless you cover them with more gold then aztech royalty I fail to see the point. >>5360881I would say that yes indeed, it is very possible to get servants to do things for you in return for protection, cash or more esoteric favours like healing or construction.
>>5360896>Crystal dragon traits : Friendly. On a non-combat first contact, or on diplomatic relationships, DC of the roll is 10.Here pulled it from the Pastebin with our traits. If we can initiate at least neutral diplomatic contact that trait could still help us.

>>5361070Sure, I can point one out right away. >>5361003"this days are far and this is no longer what defines you. What did your first three weeks of life developed most?"This is a bit of weird sentence. First of all: "This" refers to a single item, this (one) day. "These" days refers to multiple, and "those" refers to something further away. This thing in my hand, these things in my hand, those things over there. The second half is just word order, really. "You were a competent flyer, these days that's no longer what defines you. What developed most in the first three weeks of your life"Or "You were a competent flyer in those early days but that is no longer what defines you. What did you develop most during the first three weeks of your life?"If that helps at all.

They're back. The feeling is different. More of them, around two to three hundred. Mounted ones. And one of your kin. The dragon and one elf stand fifty meter closer than the rest of the army, obviously waiting for parley. You gather your siblings.

>Hundreds of them>With a grown dragon>probably ridden by a mage of some flavourSo, we are running away right? Cause I don't see any reasonable decision to be made other then "Fucking legg it", cause I doubt they want to occupy the area and search for us, and if they do we are basically self sufficient and a small army sure as all hell won't be.
>>5361177We should see if they are hostile towards us or if the Dragon will be like. "Damn these kids beat you into a retreat? Maybe i should re-negotiate my rates with you guys."But i kinda doubt they will be friendly so yeah. Grab the Humans and leg it. Only the Dragon can keep up with us in the mountains. And i hope he will understand our reasoning and is independent from the mage.

But the dragon facing you is a red, leathery one.After a second, the name's power hit you. It means "The friend of elves".Still weary, you land.

Do they want an alliance?
>>5361282>Secrets of Elven Runes>Secrets of Draconic KnowledgeWe can get our hands on Steel some other way. And even if we had the secrets to elven steel we would still need raw Materials to create the stuff while the knowledge can be immediately useful even without much of an industrial base.

>>5361831>A Magus. Powerful arcanist of wind and healing with a third eye watching the future and the past alike.>I want that "Dragon God" title, even if I'm way ahead of myself.Same bro, same. Maybe we could think of something related to wind? Create instant hurricanes to destroy armies? Fire short burst of wind blasts to knock over or knock out people? wind blade attacks?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zwgulyrge0g>>5361282pic related. Had some ideas but no real way to implement it. The curves and numbers represent some walls. Wall 1 would be built to defend our territory from attackers, in addition to hiding homes and fields for the people to live and work. When our population increases we'll knock down or keep some walls until we go to wall 2, then 3, then so on.The green circles are ideas for watch towers. When we have around some hundreds of citizens, we could have them build so they could alert us if anyone tried to invade or sneak it by trying to scale the mountains.The black grids are just a moldable idea to build homes, businesses, and locations in designated squares to optimize space and traffic of carts and people walking through, though its not very inspiring.
>>5361840You are obviously missing one super cruicql part man. A giant Avenue straight through the center of town with statues to our grandeur.And Walls for kow are probably impractical as long as we only have so few people that we can bring everyone into the walls of the keep for Emergencies.Though high Stone fences could help with Soil retention over Windbased Erosion and keeping animals.>>5361831Maybe we could learn to imbue our magic into places and keep it there. Would be useful to protect the town from storms. Especially useful in Winter because of Blizzards and in the autumn period for Thunderstorms that can be very violent without much shelter in the mountains.Also talking about Water. We will probably need to dig trenches to to divert water for Agriculture and ro prevent floodings for the Spring Melting and autumn storms
>>5361840When I mentioned "destroy armies without even moving", I was thinking something akin to summoning pillars of light, which would "erupt" from the ground and engulf the enemies, kinda like those weird lightnings that strike upwards (I remember them having a specific name, but I don't remember what it is). That said, expanding our wind magic is also great, especially because wind is very versatile for combination attacks:>Help accelerate projectiles, and even remote control them (combination with Purple, or even Green, by having him make some stone lances, launch them, and we control where they will fall);>Elemental combination, we make a tornado, throw some fire into it, and its destructiveness just multiplies.(also, I gotta ask: Can we learn magic of any element, or is it tied to some affinity? which in our case I guess would be Light, Wind and probably Ice. If it's tied, maybe we could check if our priestess has any magic affinity at all, if she turns out to have fire, that would be marvelous)And for defense as well:>Use our Wind Shield not only to deflect attacks, but launch them back into the enemy;>If some magic attack that can mix with the wind, expands the shield until it reaches the enemy.And of course, our solo play would be no less powerful, using your Wind Blade idea, if we ever manage to actually become invisible with that light refraction thingy, just imagine:>Through divination, we detect a hostile army much like we did last time>We turn invisible and fly over them>Uses Wind Blade>Soldiers start to randomly get decapitated>Panic kicks in, suddenly they are all useless, too afraid to do anything>Easily finish them off, or even let our snipers deal with the rest>War won before even startingYep, we can definitely work with that.Also, your city building plan reminded me of Age of Mythology, now I kinda want to play it again.>>5361842Not entirely sure what you mean, my brain is painting an image of a city-wide "Wind Shield" maintaining the environment inside the city neutral at all times, but I feel like you have something else in mind.>We will probably need to dig trenches to to divert waterSounds like good practice for Green.
>>5361863>Not entirely sure what you mean, my brain is painting an image of a city-wide "Wind Shield" maintaining the environment inside the city neutral at all times, but I feel like you have something else in mindI was thinking about Runecraft to link several smaller and weaker shields until not only the city is protected from steong winds but alsonthe Mountaintops around us so that we wont get Avalanches just waiting to happen because of all the oiled up snow blown up against our mountainside.Maybe also to redirwct storms and rainfall towards cisterns to store the water so we have a continous supply for our city.
>>5361870Oh, I see. That's very nice, I like how multitask it is.
>>5361282>Blue for psyonicsIf a tiebreaker is still needed.>Secrets of Elven Runes>Secrets of Draconic KnowledgeThe good stuff.

>>5362140Yeah, posted before reading everything. Thanks.Blog post time : the mega split between 99 and 1 is keeping me on my toes. I hope you will like what's coming :)
>>5361831We should have something like "Eye's of Sauron" Towers we could use to watch over our lands either passively or actively. Bonus points if the towers ca. shoot laser beams.>>5361842Not too many statues, at most and minimum 2 statues that are roughly 10ft tall, and maybe we could terraform a bit of land to create a park. OH! Maybe we could even create a large lake with a self sufficient ecosystem for people to play, fish for sport, and other nice things.>>5361863I'm really digging these dragon picks. Instead of light erupting from the ground, what if we could like mortar launch balls of plasma? Not that light erupting from the ground isn't cool or anything, but mortars are fun.>>5361870So we should build a wall to act as a defendable barrier and a wind shield so strong winds don't damage crops and homes? I can dig it.>>5362141How's life going DragonPoster?
>>5362141Well i hope it is not a Chaos Horde attacking us in the rear and not the elves being treacherous little shits.
>>5362644Thatd be some serious shit luck wouldnt it. I'd it is Chaos, I hope the elves decide to stick around to help, else we'll need to think up a way to prepare for ANOTHER FUCKING SIEGE GOD FUCKING DAMMIT!We might as well go ahead and plan for the worst. So we have a Permanent garrison, the little girl is healthy enough to help treat injured soldiers and drag them back inside the fortress to recover. What else should we do? We're all a little bit more stronger so maybe we should ask the adult dragon to help teach us cool moves: like mass dragon breath, how to give us natural armor, etc. If the dragon cant help us, then we should probably study the siege weapon to see if we can discover how to safely operate it, and learn under the Griffin to learn how to dodge mid-air and do melee attacks guuder.
>>5362264[Pretty good. I'm at my brother's place and we spend twelve hours yesterday to pour a concrete slab for an external kitchen]
>Secrets of Elven Runes>Secrets of Draconic knowledgeYou take a moment for discussing with your siblings. You convince them easily for the Draconic legacy part -- the choice of Elven runes is trickier, as Green would have prefered the riches, Purple the steel secret and Blue the artifacts."We won't abuse of your hospitality any more. Men, onward!"The elf prince took his leave, leaving behind his master smith. Wersundikeiv will teach you one week later.>Learned "Enchantment" skill>Learned elven runes : Lightness, Durability, Sophistication.>4 anons roll 2d20 for free progression in the enchantment skill. DC : 15Lightness : Elven renowned agility might come from this secret. Objects engraved with this have strange effects on weight and mass. This is the reason their builders can create such slender buildings, small ogives scratching the clouds. A pair of boots with a high-level version of those runes allow its wearer to walk on snow, walls, or even water. Your instructor also teach you how to make a weapon such as an halberd or warhammer light as a feather for his wielder while remaining of the same weight and inertia for the rest of the world. Durability : Elven are long-lived. Not as much as dragons, but without any common measure with other mortals. They build to last; this runes help with that. Objects engraved with this rune stay as pristine as the day they get out of the workshop, out of grasp of both wear and time.Sophistication : The object is beautiful. At higher level, the effect shows and give out a charismatic aura; for example such a ring could impress people talking with its wielder.
Rolled 11, 14 = 25 (2d20)>>5363032Let's go.
Rolled 8, 18 = 26 (2d20)>>5363032Lets see what we will be able to do
>>5363032Also the Lightnes Enchantment.... That will be nice for later. Imagine Knights and Griffons armored head to talon in Steel that weighs only as much as a feather giving unmatched protection for those air units.And the Durability can be very useful if we build canals to funnel water. Usually those take a lot of maintenance due to the corrosive Nature of Water but we can reduce that workload to removing silt from the channels and not needing to replace any parts.And the Sophisitcation. A dream come true for our little dragons. They will make beautiful statues and then put these runes on them to make them absolutely impressive. Good times in our future..... unless we get wiped out by whatever comes next.
>>5363042[Glad you're happy about the rune set. I gave lots of thoughts about what runes or Magic elves such as Elrond would have used or needed for building Rivendell.]
>>5363044and then here is my human brain already thinking how we could use those things to massive pieces of rock far further than we should be able to by first making them light and on the apex of their flight removing the runes to put them back to full weight and just feeling the Earthquake.Even the Sophistication Rune. If we make them good enough we could maybe hypnotize infiltrators or spies. Thought for the Evening: "If it exists Humanity will find a way to weaponize it."
Rolled 10, 20 = 30 (2d20)>>5363032learn bitch! For green we can sell enchanted stuff for muny, and these enchantments can help augment any steel thing or artifacts they make.>>5363042Those are some good ideas! No, BETTER YET! GRIFFINS IN FULL PLATE! Why stop at mounting men when the mount itself can also be armored to the gills in steel?And speaking of the sophistication enchantment. It could possibly boost everyone's charisma a tad if we make necklaces or bracelets for everyone.>>5363044Can we bully the dwarves into teaching us how to make dwarven steel, runes, and guns?
>>5363106well i was kinda saying that what with being Armored Head to TALON in Steel. The only thing i see as not too possible to armor without reducing mobility is the wings.And we have not met any dwarfs yet unless you count the Chaos Dwarfs that we looted shit from. Also good one on ya with that Crit.

>>5363106There is a whole lot of deal you can learn from dawis. You might not even have to bully them.
>>5363106>>5363138oh right i remembered. Warhammer inspiration. Lets not bully the Dawi. or Gotrek may come for our head.... Or Felix's Sword wants to see us dead.
>>5363138>>5363142Dawi don't like dragons as far as I can tell.
>>5363155I think Qm told us a while ago that the History of Dawi and Dragons is very mixed. They could be allies in creating incredible magic Items and Works of Art or the Dragons were stealing the treasures of the Dawi and killed their people for greed, malice or just sport. So we will have to hope its not a Crazy Slayer Hold we meet first so we can hope to establish a positive Raport with them
Once your enchantment master take his leave, he's replaced by the Adulte dragon.He request everybody out of the hold.>The name deal : A young dragon can choose his own name based on its life experience.

The guardian will protect and become devoted to the dragon over time, in exchange of draconic abilities and improved physical and mental characteristics.The number of guardian is limited (one for now).

White will be the contact Point for mortals.Hmmm now i am kinda sad we did not give Hector a Scale back then. But we could not be sure. And to be honest we still can not be sure if the Scale can not be abused in magical rituals.I would guess the limkt rises with age and Size of the Hoary of a Dragon
>>5363209>>5363197Support on this if allowed. Healing feels very central to our identity. Perhaps instead of reduced DC we can always heal multiple targets at once, scaling as we age?
>>5363209+1>>5363197Adulte is now officially the adopted uncle. Ask if we can ride on his back.
>>5363355i just wrote improved healing so whatever that means will probably depend on QM. To be honest i wrote this down minutes before going to sleep.
>>5363197Ho ho, time to name ourselfs "Meruem" (Light that illuminates all). . . I'm joking, as I have no idea what effects such name would grant.Also, the name being so important as to even influence actions can only remind me of when Yuuko wrote the name of a sword on a baseball bat and was then able to cut a notebook with it.Either way, because I really like overpowered characters, my mind goes straight into trying to break the system with things like:>"The bringer of miracles">Massively increase healing capabilities and effectiveness>Increase chance/effects of crits while decreasing of crit fails>Can endure death once per battle>Immunity to curses and status ailmentsMany such things, but I think this is pretty much cheating, and all in all, I think this is too important of a decision for a lurker such as myself to take part in, so I'll leave it to everyone else.(that said, I do like >>5363209's choices)Also,>>5363209>we still can not be sure if the Scale can not be abused in magical rituals.Well, I don't know about this setting, but having a piece of the owner is a perfect way to place curses upon them.
>>5363695look even if you are a Lurker you have as much a right to make your voice heard as anyone else here. QM can still just veto your proposal though... or twist it like a Monkeypaw with massive Downsides.As i would do as a GMBut breaking the System.... i know someone like that. I use him as a Beta Reader whenever i Homebrew stuff to make sure it becomes not too broken.
>>5363695+1 do it for the lulz>>5363697If we ever give our a scale to someone, should it be to the little girl we healed? She seems like a good candidate, but then again it might be too early to tell.
>>5363708I think it is just too early to tell. She seems to have some connection with us so maybe we kind of created a Pseud Guardian already. if that is the case we sure as hell can upgrade her later.
>>5363697Guess so.>twist it like a Monkeypaw with massive Downsides.How could "The bringer of miracles" have any downside? The only thing I can think of is to be like a Zashiki-warashi, who brings lucky and fortune to the place it inhabits, but as soon as it leaves, the place falls into ruins, so essentially binding us to a single location (which would kinda make us something akin to the Ganges river, that people travel to in seek of healing).>spoilerHaha, typical, me on the other hand, was a very generous GM, which would often make things scale to Disgaea levels of damage (I'm exaggerating, but it would normally reach the hundreds of thousands).Despite what I said, even if I can break a system, I'll always stop myself from doing so (however, if the system is already broken, I have no problem exploiting it, much like I did to become immortal in a Ragnarok private server many years ago).>>5363708Kek.>>5363709>we sure as hell can upgrade her later.Like I said before, let's try to find out if she has any magic affinity.PS: Found an image of Green.
>>5363709What should our relationship with her be? What is it? She seems to have some more or mind reading regarding White, or is now highly empathic to his intentions and needs. That.....or we just unlocked 100% of her brain and she's got an IQ of 400.What ever the case is we should probably ask the archers and guards to teach her how to fight for the sake of self defense, maybe even acquire chicken (eggs) and a goat (milk)from the village/town. She needs her source of proteins, and I doubt she would appreciate sharing in our surplus of Skaven meat. She's also gonna need books. Lots and lots of books, maybe we should even hire a tutor that knows Dawi so we can finally understand those damned books.
>>5363716He's derpy now, and he'll still be derpy all grown up. I approve!>>5363197Would it be possible to commission things such as a 3x3x3 chicken coop and small barn for animals?
>>5363716>The Bringer of MiraclesDefinition of Miracle: an extraordinary and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is therefore attributed to a divine agency.It says not for whom the Miracle is welcome or pleasant or that it can be triggered at will since it is by definition beyond any understanding but the divine. As you yourself pointed out the prosperity brought could be a very temporary thing. Also Shackles for the Dragon's behavior are a real thing according to his name. As Qm stated "The Brave" would make someone unwilling to run away even if it was the prudent choice to not get killed and return later. The Bringer of Miracles could very well be so far up there in morality that things like fighting or the smallest Thing that is self interest would become unbearable for them and the smallest injustice a travesty either driving them violently insane or catatonic.The disgaea thing. Well the campaign before my current one went into the same territory but it just got no longer fun to play and have any meaningful threats that could not just crush the entire world with a single digit. >>5363718Regarding the Girl. I think we do have goats already.And we have to explore how deep our connection goes. Can she draw from our powers like a Warlock or did we spark something inside her with that Super Well timed Critical?
[How could I twist the bringer of miracle? Well, how about the fact miracle can be for your opponents too, as a steroid-version of the eye of mayhem I proposed?]
>>5363720My thoughts exactly.>>5363722>>5363732>Miracles helping the enemy insteadOh... So that kind of twist.>Such high morality that becomes useless in combatNevermind the idea then, I still want to be able to eradicate entire armies.
>>5363732>>5363738You didn't said "the saint" so no high morality need.If you want to become bringer of miracles :-Improved healing (+1 free success)-Improved Crit range (18-20)-Unlock a special skill "miracle" usable once per week. Starting at 3d20, need a crit to work.Downside : huuuuuge crit fail range (1-5 without success)Other side of the coin : White will be inclined to high-risk / high-reward plays
>>5363744I see, I see, that's certainly something, I wouldn't say it's the best option, but maybe people will like it, so I'll at least be glad I brought the idea up.That said, with how our RNG is, I almost feel like it would be too risky.
>>5363748Its effectively a DC 18 for it to work. And with how our luck was this entire quest so far we get three critical failures when we trie to use it for every time it works. But if it works it will WORK
>>5363197>Little WhiteThis might be a bit on-the-nose, but I kind of like The Mirror, for White's epithet. It fits both with his leadership (keeping the family together, using scrying and divination), his light and reflection-based powers, and general attitude of "Do no harm, but take no shit". He literally gives back what others give him, for good or ill.>Little GreenI like The Mountain for him-- even if I'm not psyched about the potential reduction in mobility that might accompany such a name.Who knows? He might even get a general size/strength boost out of it as he matures.>Little PurpleThe Metamorph is fine. We can use their polymorph ability to spy on others, just as readily as using it to further his inventive capabilities. Not sure how it'll affect his breath weapon, though. Also, I would go for something cooler-sounding like "The Lord of Change", or "Father of Progress" but invoking Tzeentch is not something one should do lightly.>Little Blue As much as I dislike the complete inability to do CQC that comes with Dragon Princess, I kind of want to see if we can create a faction of our own. Four orphaned children founding a nation of dragons seems like the ultimate rags-to-riches story, and I'm fully in favor of it.
>>5363805Hi. Just wanna remind you that purple is female.
>>5363757>Those oddsYou sure we wouldn't die before succeeding a second time?
>>5363197Well this got real interesting, and important. So lets add my five cents to the hat. >>5363805>Little Green Mountain fits him: Big, hard headed and not necessarily all that clever. I like it.>Little PurpleI mean, I don't really know where the metamorph idea comes from but people seem to like it. "Smith" or "Builder", "Maker" or "Tinker" sounds like it'd fit her preference towards and understanding of machinery more then metamorph. >Little BlueDragon Princess works, she began cooperating with others before she had even hatched. I think it fits. and lastly>Little WhiteSo what have we done, we've taken a leadership role from the start, have a fascination with the skies and are good at healing. I actually like "Compelling" but it doesn't seem very poetic, and being a dragon we should want something proper fancy. I hope people like the idea and can help but something to do with Stars or the Moon, I think would be fitting. People are guided by them (in a navigational sense, but it does tie with with leadership), they are beautiful and shining (as are we) and star or moonlight is generally considered calming and nice (which one could tie to our healing habits, if you squint)Thoughts everyone?
>>5363829The metamorph thing comes from Dnd, where high level dragon can morph into humans. I felt it was in line with her cunning nature and could work really well to scout other civilizations as she's basically the rogue of your party (street-smart, dexterous and range DPS)For the name, something like "A star Brighter than the moon" would grant you bonus in leadership, healing and divination. However it would also boost you for everything while it's the night at the cost of a disadvantage under daylightI'm glad I have lurkers. I'll keep the vote open as the discussion is really interesting and this might be one of the most meaningful decision of the quest.
>>5363829to be honest For little White it makes more sense to do something with healing and Social at the Same time. I thought it would be fitting if he got a Name that reflected him wanting to mend things between his siblings to go forward as a stronger(or as strong a) unit than before. Purple the Metamorph thing is mostly because opposable thumbs are great and her kinda tricksy nature with her traps. More deception just seems appropriate i think>>5363834and good to know that she is supposed to be the Rogue. Can she get a Sneak Attack Die? I am joking of course
>>5363829>but something to do with Stars or the MoonThe "Heavengazer".>Can observe all probabilities (basically a trait under divination that allows to predict incoming attacks to increase dodge)>Cause natural admiration to those around him>Bonus proficiency to light attribute>In combat, prevents allies from panic, fear and such things that may cloud judgement Just throwing ideas.
>>5363837Miracle is not out of reach with the insane luck you guys have. The maths gives me 0.61 chances of success. As failure is irrelevant I didn't Mathed it, it won't happen right?Also, the big four (slanes, nUrgle, tzeentch, Khorne) are not in this universe. So Lord of change does not have a chaos taint.
>>5363834>I'm a lurker am I?This is how quickly I am forgotten. Fine, mate. There is no "e" in Adult. That said, yea, that's the kind of fancy name a dragon deserves... And we did make our escape in the dead of night, didn't we? >>5363845I like the spin on my idea, definitely fits with the personality and I like the implication of ambition. I still really don't like "Metamorph" yea I can see the argument for the effect on Purple, but it sounds so very modern. "Unbound" (as in not limited to her own body) or skinwalker (as in... Skin, not scales) or somesuch. Preferably also made fancy, but I am far from a poet, with the artistic inclination of a stick figure
>>5363860Thinking of it, yea. "Unbound mind" would tie in the shapeshifting and imply cunning and cleverness without sounding so very scientific and modern. Dragon princess, that's fancy as it is. Mountain... I don't think Little Green wants fancy as much as impressive/Big. So it fits him. Heavengazer, Star in the Sky, Brighter then the Moon. I may be somewhat biased but I really like the direction.
>>5363860Oh yes. No one could remember such a generic colour as in your ID. Better than me who switched ID's like seven times during this Thrad aloneMaybe for Purple we could go with the "Scalewalk Tinker"To go with the Skinwalker part and implying her fondness of Traps and all things mechanical
>>5363845How sbout Morning Star?Kidding, of course.
>>5363958Hey.You know I'm talking about this Luci (pic related).Also, I should probably finish Fairy Tail someday.
>>5363990It can't be. I was thinking about this POKéMONI read it in its entirety..... You better plan some time for that. I wasted one entire summer on it and barely remember anything years later. Except the Fan Service. Ye both kinds
>>5363990Yes i knowmy picture is of a Digimon and yes i know you were talking about Lucifer the Lightbringer Morningstar. Biblical Angel and first of the Fallen ones
>>5364001I always prefered Azazel, the fallen angel who taught mankinds the secrets of swordmaking and cosmetics. Because that's a portfolio that makes sense. He had a mate too, Gadreel, who showed people how to use said swords... And also more makeup.
Alright. Looks like :>Mountain win for Green>Metamorph win for Purple>Dragon Princess win for BlueFor White : >>5363207Vigilant>>5363209>>5363355>>5363462Mender>>5363695>>5363708Miracle>>5363805The Mirror>>5363829HevangazerAs I gived precisions and new idea, let's lock the vote for siblings. Feel free to backlink and change your vote. I'll lock in something like 12 hours.I have my own preference among your propositions. Trying really hard to stay impartial.
>>5364101Dont be impartial. Be very biased. :^)
>>5364101>Trying really hard to stay impartial.Your not getting away. Tell us. Pic related ;)
>>5364121Miracle. Think of the potential to derail the quest and provide me entertainment with the shenanigans and bounces. Plus it gives an out to some... Dire... Situations
>>5364101If nobody else votes for Heavengazer, please sign me up for Miracle. I just think "Mender" is a little to all in on the healing, and our White has done so much more then that.
No love for Vigilance?
>>5363197>>5364101Now that i had a night to mull it over i think i will change my mind a bit. From >>5363209to Support the Miracle thing as outlined here >>5363744instead
>>5364101> Changing to Mender from Vigilant
>>5364286>>5365058>>5365063[If my count is correct we have 4 Miracle and 3 Mender... Locking in]
>>5365120No, he's changing his vote from Vigilant, TO Mending.And so far, only only 1 other guy voted fro Miracle, so Mending is still leading.Get your huge crit-fail bullshit range out of here.
>>5365131Wait no, I'm the dense motherfucker.>>5365120Anyways I'm retracting my vote for Miracle and voting for Mending. RNG has never been kind to me, and that's not going to change anytime soon.
>>5365131>>5364286-1 Heavengazer; +1 Miracle>>5365058-1 Mender, +1 Miracle>>5365063-1 Vigilant, +1 Mender>>5365132Dude, really? I locked in and updated all character sheet already...
>>5365134Yeah I dunno man. I just got off work. What do you want from me?>>5363744All I'm saying is a crit fail range of 1-5 for whatever we do is painful. I'm not feeling the worth man.
