    You currently have: Wolfskin jacket, wolfskin breeches, Bone cane/club, 2 weeks of rations, a bag, a bottle of Elvish wine

    You are at your FORTIFIED HILL with your GNOLLS. ALTON and his GOBLINS are living BEHIND the HILL.
    ALTON has agreed to give you control of the GOBLINS if he can take HUMAN SLAVES after the war.
    The ELVES are ALLIED with you.
    The HALFLINGS are NEUTRAL and will sell to BOTH SIDES

    Take our bear-druid-elf and contact the Dwarf settlement.
    Ask the Elves to keep an eye on our fort - if that rascal Alton tries anything they're to send a runner to notify us at once.

    Do the Elves and Gnolls get along?
    How much do the Goblins and Alton know about the Elves?
    How goes the setting up of a religious caste hierarchy we started yesterday?
    Have we sent out long-range patrols to look out for the Human army?

    Sorry guys, I'm kinda high and had a munchies attack, but now I'm back.
    We are king of the gnolls, went to visit the elves, no halfling direct support, but they will sell to us. We found the gobbos in the mountains, being led by a cruel giant. We allied with them and brought them back.

    To the dwarves!

    You reach the cave you found yesterday.

    The elves and gnolls do not get a long, but they will tolerate each other for the duration of the war.

    >How much do the Goblins and Alton know about the Elves?
    Alton knows about the elves. The elves do not know about Alton.

    >How goes the setting up of a religious caste hierarchy we started yesterday
    Fine. The tap-dancing is beginning to spread throughout the gnoll ranks as a form of recreation.

    Ask if any of the elves know how to speak dwarf. It would be a bad idea to enter their tunnels without being able to communicate with them.

    And speaking of tunnels, we might even be too big to even fit in tunnels made for and by dwarves. How tall are we? Somewhere around five or four meters?
    Considering these two issues, we should consider sending a diplomat down instead.
    >> Anonymous 12/17/09(Thu)15:49 No.7177116
    Do we know where the halflings live, and is it far away? And where's the locations of nearby human towns and cities? If the humans launch an attack, it will probably be from the direction of one their cities, so we should be prepared or be outflanked.

    Humans live on the plains, to the West. You do not know any more about them

    Hm, that's about 3.5 meters. And we have no way to actually talk to the dwarves. You know, going down there right now suddenly sounds like a really bad idea. I suggest we go visit the halflings. They're merchants, so it's likely that at least one of them can speak dwarf and has their trust. We need an ambassador.

    Roger. You go back to the Hill (I think it needs a name, /tg/, and a drawfag for it) and everything seems fine, except some of the gnolls have taken a liking to Alton. Not many of them, only 10, but they follow him around everywhere and seem to worship him.

    Alton says he has been letting the goblins run around in the gnoll camp in exchange for letting any gnoll that wants to stay in his camp.

    Anything to say to this, /tg/?

    I'm here too.

    I agree that we should acquire an emissary to the Dwarves. Send an Elf to the Halflings to bring one back.
    We should stay and oversee the training of the army.
    We should also begin scout/patrol details to forewarn us should there be any army movement.

    You send Adran to the elves to tell them to send an emissary for the Halflings to ask for an emissary for the Dwarves. He agrees, and will return when his mission is done. He is much warmer than before and seems to have a genuine respect for you now.

    There are roughly 330 gnolls in your pack. There are over 500 goblins under Alton's command. The two seem to get along, though some gnolls still dislike the small, dopey goblins. The goblins do seem much happier now.

    The quickest way to a minion's heart is through his stomach. Send out some elves to hunt, and organize a feast. Make sure it's clear that we're the one who decided this, and that we're a much better leader than Alton.

    The gnolls are still loyal to you, and polite, and love tap-dancing. They just hang around Alton.

    You cant contact the elves now (perhaps they should move closer?), but you send some gnolls out to hunt. There will be a feast!

    Howlard Taft is much bigger than when you left (as he advances in level [his class is Servant of Yeenognhu] he gets bigger, meaner, and smarter, as well as more powerful. He is now level 3). He doens't know much in the way of tactics, but he sets the gnolls out to make weapons for EVERY knoll, if only stone ones.

    also, segregate the camps and encourage elitism in our gnolls, they are better than goblins and should be treated as such.

    Don't let the goblins get into our shit and muck things up. Tell Alton to keep his goblins in line.

    I was joking about the living goblin armor earlier, but I think the catapults would be a good idea. Also, we should train the goblins as massed archers, and train the gnolls in the use of the pike phalanx since we will probably encounter human cavalry.

    See if Aldran our bear/elf friend can get some elven soldiers to join us in drill instructor type rolls to train our coalition soldiers in their respective duties.

    And, lastly, get some damn patrols out there, we don't want a "suddenly, KNIGHTS EVERYWHERE" scenario.

    Hm, we're running out of food and we need a better location to dig in. Either we get some farming and animal breeding going, or we relocate.

    If it comes down to it, we can eat the goblins. But let's keep that as a last resort as long as there are alternatives.

    You begin training the gnolls. The elves will have to teach the goblins, as no one else but gnolls can...and the elves would be better.

    Kettle Hill is very well fortified, so a place to 'dig in', if you mean defensively, is under control. You are running low on food.

    Alton lived on eating the goblins and the occasional goat. The goblins lived (poorly) on scrubs and mushrooms, with the occasional goat. They probably could not have decent warriors at that time, considering the intense malnutrition they where under.

    Like a gentleman, you call Taft out on your suspicions. The gnoll responds with curt politeness: "I would never try to usurp you, m'lord. You can trust me."

    Also, the elves arrive at the edge of the forest. You find out they make their arrows out of wood, and then enchant them. They set out to training the gobbo's, albeit reluctantly. The elves and the gnolls keep their distance.

    The halfling diplomat, named Roger, also shows up, riding a pony. The elves have agreed to pay them for his services.

    How about this: the gnolls grab his axe, you restrain him with some rope with the assistance of Gennal.

    Roger and Gennal both tell you the axe is magically enchanted, but do not know what the enchantment is. Gennal suggests performing a divination ritual, but it will take time to prepare.

    >LEVEL UP: Choose a following class: Giant Pugilist (to rannk/level 7), Giant Berserker (to rank/level 1), Servant of Yeenoghu (to rank/level 1). Gennal also offers to teach you some druidic magic if you would like, so you may choose a level in Druid (to rank/level 1).

    Gennal begins instructing you in druidic magic. You can heal minor wounds, meditate for one hour to 'listen to the wind', and once per day you can shape a tree, either into a bigger tree, a smaller tree, or into some other shape, including weapons.

    Gennal says it is possible for you to gain the form of an animal, but what you will become is unknown (you will gain this feature at druid level 3).

    You are still standing outside the cave. It is dark. What do you do?

    Attempt to communicate with the captured dwarf, once again trying to explain that you're really more interested in speaking with their leaders than in launching any sort of invasion. Liken the humans to a plague of lemmings, who had to be driven off lest they consume all that the land in which you lived had to offer.

    The dorf spits and curses at you, calling you a liar. He says you attacked a human settlement viciously, and for no reason, and he can see you ally yourself with monsters. You offer him tea, and he spits it at you, cackling.

    I'm sure the dwarf king would prefer a gnoll/goblin/elf alliance at the bottom of his mountain all pissed off and looking for blood rather than a gnoll/goblin/elf alliance that is going to keep enemies away from his mountain, and be chums.

    I'm seeing even more enthusiasm for delving into the mountain than talking to the dorf. You give him one last chance to talk, and include your bribe. He refuses your bribe, and curses your mother and honor.

    You head into the cavern, Gennal's staff shining bright. The air is cool. As you move deeper, the ceiling begins to come closer to your head.

    You come to a fork. You are almost stooping.
