    You are two inches tall, purple, and made of magic.

    Earlier today, the hollowed out log you call home was attacked by wild hatchling fairies. Your friends, who take orders from you, outfought the attackers. None escaped. You cracked open four of the opposing fairies for the magical sparkles contained within, and demanded that the fifth serve you from now on or suffer the same fate.

    Having no choice, she accepted. Her own life story was short, but interesting. She had hatched in a secret location, outside the control of the Queen, who maintains power by controlling the Hatching Tree. A small group of fairies had attempted to round up herself and her clutchmates, but they managed to escape.

    Since this is big news, you decided to investigate for yourself. You found the story to be true. Something, has caused new fairies to come into existence far from the Queen's control, and a group of fairies has pounced on the opportunity to gain some unregulated power far from civilization.

    Naturally, you led your group on a sneak attack by night where you carried off and hid a pod of fairies. This was interrupted by a patrol, which you outran. A quicker offshoot of the same group gave chase, but your group was able to turn the tables on them, ambushing them and stomping them into their base magical components before the main group of pursuers could catch up.

    Your group has just arrived at the hollowed out log you call home, dead tired, but in high spirits. The others are a bit giddy from the combination of tonight's action and the long day.

    You are Trixie Buttercup.

    One way or another, you will make your mark on the Fairy Forest.

    Obvious things to pursue, as discussed in the previous thread:
    -Fortifying your base using bramble patches
    -Retrieving the fairy pod that you stole and hid
    -Dealing with Enemy Fairy Base

    How would you like to proceed?

    Jesus christ I was looking all over for this one.

    So, am I the first one here, or is there someone to plan with? How big is this breeding pod anyway, something like 10 faeries big? how do we make it work?

    We should check how many are at the enemy base with an invisibility flyby. if there's a lot, we focus on recovering the pod we stole. If there are only a few, then, well, they might be ripe for an assault.
    >> Narrator !!0z97bVlxXCQ 10/23/11(Sun)22:51 No.16720220
    It's about four or five fairies big. It was dark.

    The last report (from Wibble, the wild hatchling) put their numbers at fifteen, minimum, with two magic users. After the fight, that gives them eleven, with two magic users, currently, minimum. You have four. Wiping out the enemy base would be a long term goal.

    Also, fairies don't have guts. They disintegrate into sparkles when hit too hard.

    Allright then, I say we have our minions roll the faerie pod to our log, while we keep an advanced watch with the invisibility. If we see anyone coming, we set up ambush positions around the pod, and intercept any runners. We can't fight straight out yet, don't have the numbers.

    You decide to retrieve the pod immediately, prompting a few tired grumbles.

    Leading the way, spending only a few instants visible so your allies can follow you at a distance, you set off. By this time, you know the best routes between your log and the hatching grounds, and you find your way without difficulty even in the low light.

    Once you start to get close, you hear voices again. Regaining your visibility for a moment, you motion the others to stay back, then wink out of sight and investigate.

    The voices belong to a group of three fairies plodding towards the hatching tree, looking dejected.

    "I just hope I get to do it. Or at least be there."
    "Yeah, it isn't right. Imagine -- treating us like that!"
    "We'll find them."

    Movement catches your attention. There's another group of four moving towards the tree as well, and a third group on the other side. It looks like they fanned out to cover more ground, and are heading home.

    Here's a not particularly to scale map. You're purple, they're pink, brown is the tree, orange is the pod (hidden).

    You wait at a safe distance (inches). The other fairies head back to the tree.

    They seem convinced that "Arcanella," who must be in charge, will track down the thieves. There's some speculation as to whether you're part of a larger group, but the three fairies you listen to haven't heard of any other big players in the area.

    There are guards posted all around the trunk now, and you can spot one up in the branches as well. But the pod is far enough away that it's probably safe to pick up.

    Fairies aren't aware of opium. They do get high off of mushrooms, but mundane ones won't do. You need the glowy kind. The strategy could work if you had enough, but actually putting it into practice would be tricky.

    Well if we're the outnumbered underdogs, we have to learn to get tricky. We need to guerrilla warfare this shit.

    We should have one of our fairies (probably Twinkle) dedicated to gathering glowy 'shrooms, henceforth colloquially known as 'Lite Brites', 'Blinkers', etc. and hoarding them for a rainy day.

    Failing this, we need some other weapon with which we can even the odds.

    What we need is a distraction. I suggest we find a way to at least distract two groups of guards and draw them away from the pod where we shall sneak attack the remaining guards.

    To do this I suggest we try and make some sort of disturbance, maybe lure an insect into attacking one of the groups.

    damn, we hardly hid that pod at all. we'll have to do something about this.

    Can we use our speed and teleportation to lead the three closest to us to the group of four, and then away? After we do that, we get out of sight, recruit our buds, and finish off the remaining three quietly. Hopefully, this will earn us a clear vector to steal that pod. sound about right to anyone else?

    If you're doing this, you need to pick, as well as giving Wibble instructions to follow once you aren't there to order her around.

    Wibble, by the way, is somewhat trustworthy. She is definitely better off in the group than on her own, even as the most expendable member, and will most likely act accordingly.

    You instruct your allies to start rolling the pod to safety once the distraction is underway before departing, circling around the clearing.

    Deciding on using your magic to be as threatening as possible, you pop out from behind a tree, run behind a pebble, then teleport to a different pebble and run towards the first, as if there was a group moving in closer.

    Almost as soon as you do, there's a shout from the top of the tree. The guards on the ground look at the lookout, then to where her finger points, and their eyes converge on you. They look suspicious, and head inside. The lookout watches your pebble carefully. A second one soon joins her.

    You kick up some dust, and sprint for a little pile of dirt close to the tree, dropping to the ground and turning invisible the instant you're safely behind it. You then calmly walk out.

    It looks like you didn't have much time left anyway. A group of eight fairies pours out of the base of the tree. A couple are carrying small knives. They raise their heads and scan the general area with their eyes, looking concerned.

    Then they split up into two groups of four and carefully circle around the mound of dirt, keeping a safe distance. The first one to see the other side shouts "There's no one here!"

    The others have dug up the pod, and are starting to roll it home.

    With four fairies pushing, the pod rolls at a reasonable speed once you get moving. Since your focus is on pushing, you can't look behind you very well, but there's no reason to think anyone is following you.

    You make it back to the log without much difficulty. The four of you manage to drag the thing inside.

    In the early fight, Bloomstar was the most helpful, and Wibble was on the opposing side. In the ambush, Wibble held the line to stop an enemy from escaping, but Bloomstar and Twinkle did most of the fighting. Non-combat duties have been split up pretty evenly between the three.

    I think we only have 4 fairies, so we could rotate 3 maximum. and that's a fourth of a nights sleep for each of them.

    How about we compromise, you and me, and do 2 person watches?

    in that case, we should give it a day or so to ripen, and then open her up. We have to collect the rewards relatively quickly before we make our assault, so their advantage doesn't grow so fast.

    I suggest we keep them alive and fighting for us- why kill them here and eat them when we can send them to die in battle and then eat them?

    You tell Twinkle and Wibble that they're on first, followed by Bloomstar, followed by you. Then you flop down onto your pile of dandelion fluff and sleep soundly.

    The sun has risen some time ago when you finally wake up. You stretch and walk outside. Bloomstar and Wibble are waiting, slouched over the edge of the log. When you approach, Bloomstar nods and stumbles off to bed.

    Now that there is plenty of light, you can see the pod clearly. The shapes of four fairies curled up together are easy to make out. In fact, it might be a bit too easy. The pod has withered a bit now that it has been picked.

    Once everyone is awake, peeling the pod open is easy. It splits open along its seam, revealing damp, sleeping, slightly undersized fairies. One by one, their eyes open wide, and they gasp.

    None of them are ready to put up a fight, and your allies stomp the two unlucky ones you point out without difficulty. You hear the beginning of a crunching noise, followed by a light breeze and wind chimes as the fairies base particles drift to the ground.

    You hold out the sparkles.

    "If you want to live, take these and obey me forever."

    The cowering fairies shrink away from you, but both have trouble keeping their eyes off of the sparkles. The braver fairy slowly crawls towards you, then snatches the sparkle away and clutches it to her chest, breathing a sigh of relief as it dissipates and forms a shiny aura around her. The other one quickly follows her clutchmate's example.

    You should probably:
    -give them some names
    -dress them in something

    okay, take a break. because names are IMPORTANT AND OBVIOUSLY WILL TAKE FOREVER TO DECIDE.

    or a few mintues. I'm bad at names.

    Tinga? is that a fairy name?

    Also, we're up to six members now, we're not so far behind the other group. Now, we should observe them, and find some way to get them to stray from their tree. When they send out patrols, or go look for nectar, something like that. If we can catch and eliminate another group of them, we'll be almost even.

    any ideas how to do that guys?

    You give the new recruits names befitting their station, and declare Bloomstar and Twinkle in charge. You make it clear that they're to turn the new recruits into decent fighters, and come up with as many traps as they possibly can. They look at each other and grin.

    Then you leave, determined to find out some exploitable information. You park yourself at the edge of the clearing and wait a few minutes, before you remember that you can get as close as you like, invisible.

    The guards aren't encircling the tree anymore. They're crammed under the tree roots. Three of them are physically blocking the entrance tunnel where it is narrowest. The other two are fidgeting around outside, looking uncomfortable.

    After about half an hour, there's some activity. A group of six fairies leaves. They drink some dew, and stretch, talking quietly. A couple of them try dancing in a circle around a flower, but they give up after a few seconds. Their hearts aren't in it.

    You lie down and make yourself comfortable. A few medium sized groups of fairies leave the tree and re-enter. The guards change infrequently. On one occasion, the guards complain about not being relieved on schedule. They don't move from their spot, however. It's implied from their conversation that they've been given strict orders to physically block the tunnel with their bodies every second, with no exceptions.

    In the middle of the afternoon, your efforts pay off. A larger group of fairies leaves the tree to collect nectar and frolic. One of them stands out. She's bright pink, and wears a cape made of feathers, which strikes just the right balance between being fluttery and majestic. She's also just a little bit shinier than the other fairies.

    >Do faeries even do that, OP?
    Fairies have mouths, but no other orifices. They remove the minimal amounts of waste they create through their skin as glitter.

    You find a big mess, but it could be an encouraging mess. Thing 2 is dangling from a stalk of grass, upside down, ensnared in a net. Thing 1 is squealing and flailing her arms, helplessly trapped in Wibble's headlock. Bloomstar and Twinkle are laughing. Both have strands of spider silk tied to various body parts, and the campsite is covered in various nooses and trip wires.

    Bloomstar and Twinkle stand up straight when you approach. Wibble, sitting on Thing 1, salutes.

    this... is not going as amazingly as I had planned. not nearly as amazingly at all.

    Anyway, given the number of the leader's group, we should have about sixteen traps at least scattered about, if not more in a big ol' field. Tell them that you're very impressed with the prototypes though, since they seem to work great.

    the raid might have to be delayed for a day though, since getting these fairies to complete the trap field and then running them through it a few times sounds like a lot of work.

    You keep things positive, looking over each trap approvingly. Then you share the plan. A brave volunteer (Twinkle) will lead the enemy's away team through a field of traps set up in advance, while the main force rushes the gate, doing as much damage as possible and hopefully escaping with more pods.

    Twinkle grumbles, but you're in charge, and your logic is obvious.

    Bloomstar points out that the nets they made might be useful in a fight. They're a little bit unwieldy to use as weapons, but she thinks they must be good for something.

    If that doesn't work, we should try having two faeries each hold the side of a net to snare someone later on, once we're not fighting a superior force and we can afford to spend two people subduing a single enemy.

    poor twinkle. We should surprise her with a slightly larger cut of the goonshare after the job.

    I guess the plan is now to wait until our faeries are done with the traps and the runner is adequately able to dodge through them without getting herself caught.

    I guess we should keep one person on rotating lookout duty watching the tree during all this, to ensure they don't make any sudden moves. though, nowhere at all close enough to make out details of what they're doing, just general ideas of their movements.

    The traps are nice, but the plan isn't actually executable without any practice.

    You lower Thing 2 to the ground, where she squirms out of the net and pretends to not be hiding behind you. Then, you task Bloomstar with making an obstacle course and Twinkle with beating it. They exchange glances.

    You and the other three are on rotating spy duty, with instructions to stay at a safe distance. You sit down on a pebble and watch the obstacle course come into existence, occasionally directing Bloomstar to cover a wider area. When you get bored, you throw a net at Thing 2. It's somewhat effective, but a bit hard to control, since it's so light. Thing 2 looks at you, trying to figure out what set you off. You shrug.

    The obstacle course shapes up nicely. The first few traps are concealed, and it makes heavy use of obvious, easy to avoid traps that herd the runner towards secondary, more dangerous traps.

    Twinkle can navigate it fine, but when you give her a time limit, she starts ending up flat on her face or suspended in the air, to Bloomstar's amusement. After a few hours practice, she can do the entire thing, even if she tries to lure imaginary pursuers in by stepping close to the traps.

    Well, I think our folks have earned a rest, before tomorrow's raid. we want everyone to be fit and strong, after all. We should spend the rest of the day acquiring double rations for dinner. I guess nectar, since that's what fairies eat.

    Then we should use the cover of night to our advantage. We all go guard/assist Bloomstar in setting up her course near the tree.

    Make sure Twinkle pays close attention to how it's set up, and run her through the final product at least once or twice.

    You officially put everyone but the things on nap duty until nightfall. Once it's dark, you poke everyone until they wake up, and do a last minute check before leaving.

    The group encounters no patrols, and the traps go up quickly. Soon, they are set to Bloomstar's satisfaction, as well as Twinkle's and of course yours.

    Now all there is to do is wait.

    And wait.

    It looks like the other fairies aren't inclined to leave their base in force at night while stalked by an unspecific number of invisible enemies.

    You wait a little bit more, just to be sure.

    After that, we band together and focus them down one or two at a time, starting with those who didn't fall into the traps.

    Also, the fact that she is faster than her persuers bodes well. She can lose them if she needs to. but she doesn't. We should wait and watch while they chase her, at a reduced pace, into the trappatch.

    You can teleport six hexes at the cost of one movement point, meaning your effective speed is 12. You can turn invisible, but teleporting cancels the effect for an instant (the round). Fairies in punching distance will also be able to detect you.

    Twinkle reaches the brush line and dives in. Her fastest pursuers hit the traps. The one on the left (their left) hits a trip wire and falls flat. The other screams as she is lifted into the air, ensnared.

    Their leader, who is a tiny bit behind, glances around and shouts "Stop stop stop!" There's an instant of delay between her words coming out of her mouth, and her underlings paying attention.

    let's see, specifically, I believe all our units are within move range of the enemies, so we can get a charge from the underbrush here. At least, that's what all the goons will be doing.

    Trixxie should start running, teleport behind the leader, punch her in the back of the head, and then use her remaining 5 move to get into the area of the trapzone.

    Twinkle turns around and inexpertly mashes her fist into the dangling fairy's face. The impact sends her swinging back and forth.

    Another one of the fairies charges in and finds her leg caught in a loop of silk. She tugs at it twice before starting to claw at the knot, one eye on Twinkle.

    The leader shouts in frustration. "Stop moving. Stop moving. Stop. Moving. Stop moving!" One of her underlings slowly backs up, uncertain.

    The second lookout disappears into the tree.

    that's as good as it gets. spring the ambush.

    I suggest you do that thing you did last time with the piles of dice rolls you made for speed. that seemed to work well.

    as for specific strategy, have our slower attackers come out from the woods straight on, and our faster people circle around and attack from behind to prevent escape. Trixie should still hit-an-run to the traps after punching the leader, and tinkle should work on making sure none of the fairies escape the traps.

    You sprint around the chaotic mess in your way and head for the leader. While she is busy shouting, you tiger knee her in the jaw at full speed (3 damage). To her credit, she stays on her feet. Bloomstar takes advantage of your display and kicks the fairy adjacent to you in the stomach (2 damage), dropping her.

    The things, swinging their fists with much more enthusiasm than skill, knock the forward fairy to the ground after several tries (1 damage each).

    Wibble smacks the closest fairy as she stands up (1 damage).

    Twinkle misjudges the distance between herself and the fairy to her left. Her punch strikes the air quite hard.

    Gonna do enemy phase as a separate thing this time. Here's some dice.

    The closest fairy struggles under the weight of the things, but manages to shove them off, rising to her feet unsteadily. She backhands Thing 1 (1), sending her sprawling.

    Wibble's enemy strikes back (1), staggering her, but leaving her standing.

    Twinkle's fairy laughs and punches her (1). Twinkle is briefly knocked back, but turns to glare at her enemy with a grim expression.

    Fairies are pouring out of the base of the tree. You count five, one of whom is wearing a cape. You have plenty of time to finish this fight, but on the other hand a head start would be nice.

    We're a least twice as fast as everyone else, and we hit like a truck. If we take out this group leader while our underlings finish of the group, the enemy won't have anyone else that knows of the trap field.

    You run to the brush line, jump into the air with your knee extended, disappear, and reappear in the open right behind the leader's head. She had no way to see it coming, and falls to the ground, out cold.

    You signal for a retreat, positioning your group well behind the field of traps.

    It seems that Arcanella is sending a screen of the comparatively less experienced fairies in first, several inches in front of the main group. When one screams after being launched into the air by a bent blade of grass, she holds up her hand, and the group stops. Then she points straight ahead.

    There's a bright flash of light, and a loud bang. Both make you blink. When you open your eyes, there's a flat area of torn up brush in front of the scouts, at least six inches wide. She motions the fairies forward.

    Arcanella repeats the process, slowly clearing a wide, flat area for the fairies to walk in safely.
