    Part I: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/15926550/

    A continent whose history is shrouded in myth. Some say the FIRST! People came here hundreds of years ago in a flash of light, from a completely different world. Others say that human kind has ALWAYS existed here, and that that is just a myth. Whatever the case, it is a place plagued by war.

    >THE WASTES OF /b/:
    The /b/arbarians are known for their savagery and stupidity. If they were not held back by the strength of the other lands, they would plunge the world into darkness. They are similar to the Mongol Horde, just more retarded.

    >THE EMPIRE OF /v/:
    A massive empire on the verge of collapse, having withstood the bulk of the /b/arbarian horde for centuries. What was once a proud, unified nation has fallen to petty squabbles and backstabbing nobles, but they are still a force to be reckoned with. They are similar to the Roman Empire in its final days.

    >THE NATION OF /vp/:
    The smallest and youngest nation, /vp/ was once a province of the /v/ empire, its people ostracized and despised for their strange beliefs. They commune with the magical creatures of their homeland, making their beast-masters a fearsome foe. They are similar to Imperial China/Japan.

    A disciplined and war-like culture, the /k/ommandos of /k/ are widely known, and equally feared. No other nation can match their skill with firearms. All who can fight, will fight; their is no such thing as a "civilian" in /k/. They are similar to Ancient Greece (Specifically, Sparta).

    >THE ISLES OF /fit/:
    With raw strength and great endurance, the /fit/izens have truly mastered the dangerous jungles of their home islands; they are master sailors, and skilled fighters, but they are proud, vain creatures. They are similar to Klingons or Warcraft Orcs, but much prettier.

    >THE LANDS OF /tg/:
    A small nation, on the very edge of civilization; the people here are hardy and inventive, but are often divided by things that outsiders see as trivial or foolish. Despite their shortcomings, they have the potential to be much greater... And you will see to it that it is achieved.

    You have recently gained the title of Lord, and the control of the smallest territory in the Lands of /tg/. Nevertheless, you will achieve your goal - complete dominion over all of Forchania!
    >> Forchania !!QVgBJCzCjEB 08/14/11(Sun)16:48 No.15936944
    1. You are Lord Bidhill of Dessex, the smallest territory within the lands of /tg/. You are currently at war with your only neighboring territory, Umbra, who, in an attempt of a hostile takeover, killed the previous lord while he was attempting to negotiate a truce under a white flag.

    2. You held an audience with an emissary from the Hammerfell Mountainhome. The dwarves there were also attacked by Umbra, and suffered heavy losses before managing to seal the major tunnels (mostly with magma). In exchange for military aid and mining rights, the dwarves agreed to lend food to your near-empty food stores. You also learned a Dwarven expletive: "Kobold-Fucker."

    3. You have sent several small groups of messengers to each of the other three territories (Cadia, Blackmoor, and Golarion), and your dwarven allies have agreed to send a small, elite force through the tunnels towards Cadia, and another set into the Mountainhomes of Umbra, in an attempt to foster dissent.

    4. You are attempting to foster better relations with the local druids (for their fertility magic), and trying to train more Divine Magic users (for use against the dark Umbra menace).

    >(Cont. >>15936944 )
    5. You are training Crossbowmen, and your Dwarven allies have agreed to aid in the training of your melee forces. The Dwarves are having some of their miners focus on Silver, in hopes of dealing with the Shapeshifters of Umbra.

    6. The Blackwatch (the border between Dessex and /b/) has been reinforced, thanks to the Dwarves; several Dwarven Platoons are also aiding in patrols. The border between Dessex and Umbra has been bolstered by Earth Mages.

    7. You and Kahl (your War Minister) came up with a devious plan, and have begun spreading propaganda into the Wastelands of /b/, all of which contain various poorly-written insults and even worse drawings of penises, with Umbra's

    seal upon them, in the hopes that it would cause the /b/arbarians to focus their assaults on the less-defended Umbra-/b/order.

    1. Rumors say that the /k/ Republic is secretly funding the /vp/ rebels. While not terribly important at present, it may help later.

    2. Resurrection Magic is not Possible

    3. Paladins and Clerics exist within the lands of /tg/, and /v/, to a smaller extent. Cadians worship technology.

    4. Women are considered equal to men in Dessex; it is different in other lands, especially /b/ and /v/.

    5. Long have tales of /d/emons from beyond the mortal realm been spun by the bards. While they may be simple fairy tales, if these shape-shifting avatars of lust are real, they may prove useful allies... or dangerous enemies.

    1. Sir Kahl (War Minister): An aging knight, who suffers from a debilitating wound to the leg he recieved decades ago in single combat with one of the most powerful Warlords of /b/. Despite his failing body, his mind is as sharp as


    2. Valarius (Diplomatic Minister): Middle-Aged and balding, but jolly and good-natured. He loves to drink, and, as such, becomes incredibly happy when Dwarven Envoys arrive.

    3. Urvash Strongbeard (Dwarven Emmisary): The emissary of the Hamerfell Mountainhome. He seemed like a good sort; honorable and honest, though not much for decorum.

    Nearly a week has passed, and you find yourself seated in your dining hall, in a meeting with the various nobles of Dessex.

    You take a bite of the stew before you, uncertain of whether you enjoy it or not; the Dwarves use far too much mushroom for your tastes, but the flavor is delightful.

    After a few moments, one of the nobles (Erik Norton, you believe his name is) at the table slams his fists against it, causing his bowl to shake, spilling some of its contents.

    "I cannot believe this!" He cries, standing up and glaring at you. "First, you deplete the food stores without consulting us, and now we must eat this... this... DWARVEN TRASH! How dare you!"

    Several other nobles begin to murmur in agreement, nodding their heads as they look between you and the irate noble. Before you can respond, your War Minister, Sir Kahl, rises from his chair; he has already eaten three bowls of the stuff, you notice, but the mushroom stuck to his beard does little to distract from the fury of his gaze. He has drawn his sword, and points it across the table at Norton.

    "You will address our Liege with respect, knave, or I will cut out your tongue!"

    The other nobles rise from their seats, and a cacophony of shouts, insults, threats, and accusations flies across the table.

    Precisely why we must crush dissent. Now.

    Whatever we do to the noble, we must make it clear that such dissent/malingering/blind prejudice will not be allowed. The Dwarves are our ally, but we should make it clear that while they have our respect, we are not their patsy. It's a fine line to walk.

    Watch for signs of dissent. Have our nobles watched. Try and subvert their servants if possible.

    We must crush the dissent but also show that we are compassionate to the plight, and listening. We will be overthrown otherwise.

    The main problem isn't his dissent. He's raising a good point, actually.

    The problems are his blatant stupidity and his dwarf-phobia. We cannot allow stupidity or irrational xenophobia in our leaders at this juncture. If he doesn't have the diplomatic skill to smile and eat the food of an ally when requested by his leader, he is not worthy of his position.

    Start making arrangements for him to be removed in the near future. For now, we punish him appropriately for stupidity, then invite the remaining leaders to discuss the food situation and their suggestions. Make them feel like you are their leader.

    No. We will not allow a buffoon to jeopardize our relationship with our allies. Neither can we let him out of our sight.

    We're promoting him to something where we can watch him and where he is powerless.

    He's going to be our new minister of food distribution. He oversees the work of food distribution and makes recommendations, but has no actual power over where food goes.

    You slowly rise from the table, not saying a word. As you do, the shouting match abates, as the gathered nobles look to you. Sir Kahl sheathes his sword, but is still glaring daggers at Norton, whom you turn to.

    "Sir Norton," you begin, trying to resist the urge to smash his face into his bowl of soup,

    "This food, good or bad, is the food we have. If you are not man enough to eat quietly a meal you don't like, how can I expect you to hold of a siege?"

    "How can I count on you to stay in the front line if they cut our supplies? I'm sorry but in the present conditions of our lands, we cannot afford to eat venison and boar with honey everyday."

    He begins to speak, his face turning red, but a sharp look from Sir Kahl stops him.

    "You disappoint me lord Norton," you continue, "and therefore I give you two options, seat down, eat your meal with a smile up your face, or be stripped of your title and conditions."

    Norton's expression turns to one of horror. You smile.

    "A noble should be the first to starve when the need comes, and the last to eat when the food arrives. Think about this and enjoy your soup."

    Norton looks as if he is about to explode with fury, but the look in your eyes quells him, and he lowers his head, his face as red as a tomato.

    "I... Yes, your Lordship. I apologize for my disrespect."

    "It isn't me you should be apologizing to, Sir Norton," you say, pointing to the dwarves. Urvash Strongbeard, the Dwarven emissary, simply laughs.

    Urvash chuckles.

    "Ya know, Norton, my mother always said something to me at a time like this..." He puts on a high-pitched, feminine (for a dwarf) voice:

    "If ya don't eat your dinner, you won't get any icecream for dessert!"

    The dwarves (and Sir Kahl) howl with laughter, and Norton says nothing. You raise a hand, silencing them.

    "Enough, good sirs. I feel he understands."

    The rest of the meal proceeds quite well, and, as everyone begins to leave, Urvash moves towards you.

    "You got some massive stones, friend. I'm glad I'll never have to fight ya."

    And with that, he leaves.

    A few hours later, you find yourself seated in your Throne Room, attending to matters of state. Suddenly, you hear the doors open, and your Spy Master, Sir Soren, enters the room.

    He is a small man, his features often hidden in the shadows of his dark cloak, but you can see that his soot-black hair is beginning to show streaks of gray.

    “My Lord,” he says, his voice soft, but somehow carrying as if he was right next to you, “I have news of the couriers sent to the other territories.”

    The various scribes and advisors in the room leave quietly, as is expected whenever the Spymaster would wish to speak with his Lord.

    Soren waits until the all of the others in the room have left, and places two sealed scrolls on the small table in front of your throne.

    “These are the replies from Lord Xagyg of Blackmoor, and Lady Casmaron of Golarion, my Lord.”

    You carefully examine each scroll; neither seems to be rigged, mainly because...

    ... Well, they're SCROLLs.

    You break the seal on the scroll from Lord Xagyg, and you are startled slightly as a heavy black ring falls onto the table, ringing like a silver bell as it does. Ignoring it for now, you read the letter.

    >Most Honorable Lord Bidhill of Dessex;
    >Long have we suspected the Umbrans of magic and deeds most foul. While the news of your suffering pains us greatly, we are, regretfully, unable to send aid.

    >The /b/arbarian horde has been pressing against our south-west border for months, and we have no more troops to spare to send you aid. We also cannot afford to cease our trade agreements with the Umbrans, or our people will starve.

    >However, I have concealed within this letter a small token, to show that we do not ignore those who require our assistance. This ring was enchanted by myself, and six of my court's strongest magi. With it, you will be able to see through any illusion, so long as it is not beyond my power.
    >> Forchania !!QVgBJCzCjEB 08/14/11(Sun)18:11 No.15937732
    You realize that Lord Xagyg is one of the most powerful Wizards in /tg/; if he combined his might with six other Blackmoor Wizards (and all Blackmoor Wizards are legendary for their Arcane Might), it seems incredibly unlikely that any illusion could best this artifact.

    You continue reading:

    >While I understand that this may be of little comfort, I pray you will understand our plight. Though we cannot openly ally ourselves with you now, know that we will be watching, and, when the time is right, know that we will come.

    >Sincerely, Lord Xagyg Regald, Ruler of Blackmoor

    You look over the note for a few more moments, before carefully donning the ring.

    Suddenly, you feel a slight stinging in your eyes, but it disappears as quickly as it came. When you open your eyes, you are slightly disappointed to see that nothing seems to have changed... Until you notice Soren's cowl.

    You can see his face as if it was lit by the sun, and you realize the omnipresent shadow covering it was not, in fact, because of his hood, but was actually an illusion!

    You open the letter from Lady Casmaron, and begin to read:

    >To Whom It May Concern
    >Lady Casmaron finds it preposterous that you would accuse the ever-noble Umbrans of foul play.

    Oh, this won't end well...

    >Lady Casmaron also finds it preposterous that you would expect her to aid you in the subversion of a fellow Ruler of the Lands of /tg/.

    >As such, Lady Casmaron has imprisoned the messengers you sent to Lady Casmaron's Royal Hall, where they shall await execution for slander and treason.

    >Lady Casmaron believes you should prepare yourself for the same.

    >Sincerely, Lady Casmaron of Golarion

    Well... Shit. Looks like you can't expect magic rings in EVERY letter.

    "Gentlemen. It would appear that we are alone in this war. We can only hope we receive news from Cadia soon. Until then, we must prepare our forces."

    After the meeting with Kahl, Urvash, and Soren, you consider organizing a meeting with your agricultural minister.

    Before you can voice the idea, however, you hear a knock on the door. A man in billowing green-and-brown robes enters the room, holding a gnarled wooden staff. There is a mouse riding on his shoulder.

    He bows before you. The mouse on his shoulder does the same.

    “Lord Bidhill of Dessex. I am Ogden, Grand-Druid of the Sylvan Grove. It has come to our attention that you wish to speak with-”

    The door opens again, interrupting Ogden, as a new person enters the room, this one a woman.

    Though her face is young, her hair is as white as driven snow, matching the silk robes she wears, which sparkle softly in the morning light filtering into the throne room. She, too, carries a staff, but this one is made from what looks like bright-white mithril, topped with a large amethyst. She bows to you, apparently not noticing that someone else is right next to her.

    “Most Honorable Lord Bidhill, I am Akara, High-Priestess of the Order of Light. It pleases me greatly that you requested our aid in these dark times, and-”

    “Excuse me, but I was speaking, Priestess!”

    Akara looks at Ogden, her serene expression shifting as if she had just noticed a stain on her pure-white robes.

    “Ah. I didn't see you there, Ogden. Surely you have other things to do than waste the Most Honorable Lord's time? Climb trees? Mate with some foul beast?”

    Ogden's expression turns sour, and the mouse on his shoulder chitters angrily at the woman, standing in a boxer's fighting stance, tiny fists raised.

    This will be fun.

    You clear your throat, drawing their attention - though the mouse is still glaring daggers at Akara.

    "I thank you - both of you - for coming at this dire hour. However, we must put past disagreements BEHIND us if we are to survive. Both Nature and Light are aspects of this world's beauty, and if they cannot be united, the Darkness of Umbra will consume them both."

    Akara scoffs at this, but is otherwise silent. Ogden just sighs. The mouse rolls its eyes.

    "Now then," you continue, "High Priestess Akara, if you would?"

    Ogden looks at you with anger for a moment, before comprehension dawns. He is still unhappy, but understands what you are doing. Akara just looks smug.

    "Indeed. Ahem." She curtsies, before continuing, "As I was saying before I was so rudely interrupted, I am Akara, High-Priestess of the Order of Light. We received your request for aid, and that is why I am here. While most of our order are rather busy healing the sick and wounded at the moment, we do have a squad of Paladins that we could afford to lend you."

    A new dwarf comes through the door, wheeling in a wooden dummy wearing steel armor. The dwarf demonstrating the weapons picks up one of the axes, and hurls it at the dummy's skull.

    It flies true, and cleaves into the dummy, shredding through the helm it wears.

    The dwarves look at you expectantly.

    Congratulate the Dwarfs on their ingenuity - these weapons will surely help us against the Umbrans.

    Ask him how many swords of this alloy he has, and if he has enough, supply Sir Kahl, us, and the Paladins with them.

    It's up to the OP to do stuff like that, you can't just unilaterally decide that /co/mrades will show up.

    Bad manners, man.

    Alright sorry then. I'll delete it. My idea was we travelled to a land with sea access near to Dessex and hoofed it from there.

    You clap your hands in appreciation.

    "Wonderful! I am glad to see the stories of Stonelord skill and ingenuity remain as true as ever!"

    "Now then... How many weapons do you possess? Would you be able to supply the Paladins and Sir Kahl and his men?"

    The dwarves nod.

    "Good. And..." You pause for a moment, "I would like a sword for myself, as well."

    The dwarves grin widely.

    "Aye, my Lord, but none of these! These are garbage, not fit for someone who has aided our people as greatly as you have! We will forge you a sword of legends!"

    You mean across /b/, where you would have died?

    Or /k/, where you'd have probably been shot?

    Or /vp/, where they would have made you put on a furry suit and sodomised you?

    Or even landing in Blackmoor in /tg/, and then had to have walked through Umbra, which we're at war with, to get to us?

    Have you even read any of the quest so far?
    >> MILLANDSON 08/14/11(Sun)21:37 No.15939701

    These dwarfs are bros! Bro-fist them, as a sign of our alliance.

    We shall also grant them access to all our trade routes with Blackmoor, once we've made them after our invasion - it'll make the dwarfs wealthier, and also mean they can get greater supplies of ale and metals, for more weapons.

    Thank them and if they have nothing else to discuss, dismiss them. Ask if they have anything in the way of armor.

    Also after the universal hatred for deus ex machina /co/mrades, perhaps people will stop requesting them/

    Thank the dwarves sincerely. Now all we can do is wait. Wait for information from the spies and wait for our forces to be prepared. I think moral might be a bit low on in the nation. I think its time the lord made a speech to rally the people and possibly get them to help with the war effort.

    Assemble the army and wait for news from Umbra border with /b/. If Umbra is already under attack, or even just moved their army northward, we execute the plan. I vote we call it "Blitzslap".

    If not, we wait for soren to give the greenlight and blitzslap them!

    You thank the dwarves for their generosity, and promise them full use of the trade routes your upcoming conquest should open up. You make sure to have one of your scribes put it in writing, and they go on their way.

    You sigh with contentment, and ponder the upcoming battle.

    It is good to be Lord.

    Same here, nice one OP!

    I'm probably off for the night now too, so hope it's tomorrow it continues! :P

    Still, I think we know that the druids and the Dwarfs are our true bros, right?

    Agreed. This is probably my favorite thread on 4chan. Can't wait to see what happens next.

    Op I have this thread bookmarked. When the new on is created could you please post a link this one? Finding threads on 4chan can be difficult at times.
    >> MILLANDSON 08/14/11(Sun)23:26 No.15940666
    Probably depends on whether this thread is still up by then.
