    You are Trixie Buttercup, undisputed ruler of a hollowed out log and a tree that generates fairy pods. At your command are six lesser fairies, most of which are wild hatchlings you have either adopted or beaten senseless and then adopted. One of them, Moonbubble, is the last member of the previous owners of your tree, who are now dead, broken into their component magical sparkles, and absorbed for their power.

    Okay then.

    What's Freeport, and what're those Forts?

    And are faeries harmed by just touching magnets, or does 'cold' iron simply count as something that breaks the innate resistance to nonmagical damage.
    >> Narrator !!0z97bVlxXCQ 10/30/11(Sun)23:08 No.16791409
    The main new pile of information is the world map, which represents the sum of your group's collective knowledge of the world's geography and political boundaries.

    Freeport is a neutral city that sells week passes for a sparkle each. Freeport does not tolerate attacks on fairies carrying passes.

    The two forts on the opposite side of the Queen's lands are rumored to have their own hatching grounds.

    Neither group can win a conflict against the Queen, but the Queen cannot attack either group in force without allowing her lands to be annexed by the other.

    Heavy dotted lines represent proper, occupied territory. Light dotted lines represent patrolled area/hunting grounds.

    It is the day after your successful conquest of the hatching tree, and the fairies are just finishing the process of moving in. Rolling the pretty rocks back from the log takes several trips, and tidying up any leftover mess sucks up most of the afternoon, but the fairies take plenty of breaks to chase each other around, and the work has an immediate, obvious benefit, so spirits are high.

    None left, levelups happened in the last thread.

    So wow long is a fry willing to stand guard for at a stretch for a long time (like say a month). because I think that 24/ that number*4*(the number of fairies needed to watch all approaches to the tree {?3?}) is the amount of troops we should aim to have at the level of the things for before making any big moves. I say the 4 thing is so each guard post can have 2 fairies and the other 2 are "off rotation" ether on "vacation" scouting or doing some support thing like trap laying or item crafting or mining iron if we find some.

    Nope. You can expect a pod in two to three days, and probably about one every week after that, provided none of them get damaged.

    >So wow long is a fry willing to stand guard for at a stretch for a long time
    You'd guess about three hours in a row. It's an attention span issue, though. As long as you rotate fairies frequently you'll be fine.

    We should focus on doing more then just killing/looting
    I can't see that working forever. Eventually we're going to get squished by someone we can't handle.
    Develop something worthwhile, technologically or magically, something novel that would be useful.
    I'm not certain what. Do faeries need to eat? Or do they subsist entirely on sparkles?
    What's our tech level currently? It seems to be mostly things made from sticks. Maybe we could develop some manufacturing capabilities, do some trading.
    >> Narrator !!0z97bVlxXCQ 10/30/11(Sun)23:47 No.16791673
    You assign yourself and Wibble to scouting duty, and keep the rest of the fairies at the base, rotating between quick shifts of guard duty, trap duty, and sitting around duty. You make sure that they stay within each other's view as much as possible.

    You spend the next few days continuing the exploration you started during the conflict. You confirm what you know, and add to the list of places that contain nothing of interest. You're fairly certain that nobody is living nearby, not even a tiny group.

    It can't hurt to keep it up, though. Small groups of fairies wander. Fairies spontaneously generate.

    In between sessions of exploring, you find yourself able to smell the magic on the developing fairy pods. This isn't really helpful. You already knew they were magic. They're fairy pods.

    What you can't quite explain is why the rooms inside the tree on the ground level have a similar smell. The pods aren't anywhere nearby at all.

    6 hours is easy. 9 is fine, but pushing it. 12 will lead to complaints, outside of an emergency.

    Animal taming would be very useful. I think it's something we should investigate. Domesticated beasts of burden are nothing to sneeze over.

    We also have a fairy who can create magical items. Maybe we should experiment with that, see the limits of what we can create. Can she make something that gives off constant heat? Cold?
    >> Taffer 10/30/11(Sun)23:52 No.16791706
    Trixie, with her magic sniffers, should investigate the rooms. Wibble can scout alone. Those on sitting around duty can join Trixie on her detectoring and help by knocking on suspected hollow panels and accidentally discoverying secret levers.

    I suggest that we start establishing a long-term base at the tree, with the log as a hidden backup. What we need is:

    A reliable nearby food source. What streams/edible plants are growing nearby?

    What defenses can we think up? Traps are good for slowing fairies but won't kill them. Are those rocks magical? Could we prepare them to be dropped on attackers?

    We need to organise ourselves so we don't need to be present for shit to get done. How about we get 2-3 lieutenants each leading a squad of 2-3 fairies, each with a different function (eg. scouting, trapping, kidnapping/assassination)?

    If a fairy has a metal item, it's probably stolen, and if it isn't stolen it's traded. Fairies don't have the technology to mine their own metal or smith it.

    You give Bloomstar a list of various things to research, and assign Moonbubble to her as an underling until further notice. The list is very long. Then you go back to scouting.

    Still no other fairies. You're getting to the point where you won't be able to make larger circles and come back in one day.

    When you return, Bloomstar has a lot to report. Constant heat and cold items were ruled out as too complicated at the moment, but she captured a beetle and trained it to waddle away slowly, wave its antenna, bite her, pick her up, and waddle away quickly. Also, she lost the beetle.

    She has a proposal, though. "So, you know how, when you give a fairy a sparkle, that fairy becomes more magic?"

    You do.

    "What happens when you give a sparkle to something that ISN'T magic?"

    One of the pods is ripe.

    Experiment report: Moonbubble's sword can chop nearly through a twig the size of a fairy's wrist with a bit of effort. It can also leave deep cuts in a heavier piece of wood.

    It's probably not practical to make bucklers out of wood because of the weight, but you could make a pavise. Or, you know, other things, since you have tools harder than wood now.

    They're confused, having trouble adjusting to the bright light, and a little unsteady on their feet, but between your confidence and the other fairies' obedience, they have no trouble figuring out who is in charge.

    Bloomstar and Twinkle, after testing the waters a bit, spend their next few sitting around shifts tormenting the hatchlings. The hatchlings fight back, uselessly.

    The hatchlings learn by example and start to pick on each other in their spare time. They aren't actually very good at it, but they quickly figure out the value of double teaming and ambushes by trial and error.

    You rotate the fairies through their various duties, and promote Thing 1 and 2 to having actual names. They have to think about this.

    You declare the bottom floor open for decoration. Being able to work with wood is turning out to have lots of uses, and the fairies don't need much encouragement to decorate the place. Most of the art consists of depictions of the artist, either frolicking, sitting, or chasing away terrified enemies, but there are a couple of pictures of you standing on crying fairies, kicking sad fairies, standing proudly while your cape flutters, and standing behind confused fairies and laughing.

    Bloomstar makes a bow and arrows, mostly out of curiosity. She can't put Moonbubble's arrowheads on arrows fast enough to fire more than three shots in combat, though.

    Days later, you have another pod.

    After days of digging, the hole is deep enough that it takes a knotted silk rope ladder to get in and out. You investigate the bottom of the hole. It's like rubbing your nose on a fairy pod. This hole is definitely going to uncover something, but you aren't sure what, or when.

    You remind yourself to keep track of the clever fairy.

    Now that you have fifteen underlings, having multiple treetop spotters, guards, and diggers on duty at one time isn't very hard. You leave the tree with Bloomstar and find a beetle after wandering around for a bit.

    You're not really sure how this works. First you try to feed the beetle the sparkle, but you can't get it to cooperate. It raises its legs at you, then starts to fall over, then puts its legs back down. The cycle repeats.

    Finally you run up to the beetle and smash the sparkle into its back repeatedly. It bounces off the beetle's shell. The first two times. The third time it vanishes.

    The beetle doesn't look different. It does ACT differently. It doesn't try to scare you, or run away. It stares at you, then turns to Bloomstar, as if it isn't sure who to address.

    Now that we have domesticated it with a sparkle... Tell one of the more tuff' gurlz to be ready to receive a spank by the bettle.
    . . .
    What? We gotta test out if the sparkle allows it to kill a fairy.

    Tell the one that managed to keep standing after one hit by the bettle gets as much sparkles from the next batch of popped hatchlings. If the volunteer burst in sparkles though, we feed a third of her sparkles to the bettle and share the rest.

    While it might sound like a waste, this is an important experiment: whether or not sparkled non-fairies can kill fairies.

    Think about that. If a swarm of sparkled bees can kill fairies... And then what happens when those sparkled got a taste for sparkles? Can we kill it normally, or will it have a fairy's special constitution?

    And if we kill one, will the sparkles return?

    These are big questions. For me, at least. Damned pessimist-mind.

    Moonbubble and Bloomstar can't solve the mystery of the fused armor. Bloomstar points out that having a fluttery beetle would be dumb and you shouldn't care.

    Within an hour Bloomstar has a harness on the beetle, attached to a leaf piled high with dirt. The beetle starts hauling out excess dirt from the hole, which was starting to pile up, faster than a group of four fairies could do it.

    Amanita muscaria, commonly known as the fly agaric or fly Amanita , is a poisonous and psychoactive basidiomycete fungus, one of many in the genus Amanita.
    The quintessential toadstool, it is a large white-gilled, white-spotted, usually deep red mushroom, one of the most recognizable and widely encountered in popular culture.

    Although it is generally considered poisonous, deaths are extremely rare, and it is consumed as a food in parts of Europe, Asia, and North America after parboiling. Amanita muscaria is now primarily famed for its hallucinogenic properties, with its main psychoactive constituent being the compound muscimol.

    do we want caring, self-sacrificing individuals? I thought we wanted badass warrior fairies who don't take shit from anyone. If we want these fairies to be warriors we need to start them on killing the second they're born.

    You give the hatchlings the usual speech. The instant the speech ends, one of them grabs her neighbor by the head and twists. Ok.

    You're beginning to think that fairies smell like the magic hole, rather than the other way around. It's getting pretty deep.

    i think we should only do that if we want to make a new lieutenant, and allow the fairy that wins to eat all of the sparkles of the other fairies from the pod. That way the pod would give us one battle-hardened warrior instead of five useless weaklings.

    It's not about changing moral makeup.

    Any fairy with sheer sparkles to do that is damn near unique and therefore interesting.

    They also likely have some sort of hero complex and willpower up the wazoo (an actual part of the fairy anatomy, no doubt), and THAT will likely translate into good fightin' for us. If we undermine her sacrifice, we lose that, and might have some BS "hero of justice" guerilla war against us.

    Basically, a fairy hero steps forward, we raise her up the ranks.

    as a fairy, i think we should always look at all other fairies as a number of sparkles to be harvested rather than as a person. Those individual hatchlings aren't valuable to us for their personality, they're valuable to us for the powers they develop when we give them sparkles.

    these sparkles have a will of their own, and we need to manage them through a tricky combination of fear, awe, guilt, and profit.

    You head to the bee hive with a short sword, a sparkle, and a coil of rope, just in case. When you arrive, you fade away.

    Climbing inside is easy. The bees don't seem interested in you, even when one gets near. One nearly walks into you and then bumbles around, trying to find a clear path, but that's the closest you get to a reaction.

    You don't know where to find larvae, so you poke around until you stumble on some. They're white, blobby, ribbed things, each one tucked neatly into its hexagon of wax. You cut one free and strap it to your back. Then, to increase your free hands by one, you rub the sparkle on the larva until it absorbs.

    Then you pick up some goo, which you're pretty sure is the right goo for making queens.

    You leave without any trouble. You'd think the bees would object to your stealing a baby.

    you're right, we'll need to mate it once it matures.

    but this won't be a problem for a few days. Male bees, if I remember correctly, look a BIT DIFFERENT than female bees. like, the stripes are a bit more spaced apart, and they have a bigger black area. from the one I'm familiar with.

    so, to find a male bee, we go back to the hive we got this one and find a bee that's different from the other bees, and isn't much larger. that should be a male. right? right. right?

    It's shiny.

    And it has a little mouth now, with pincers. And lots of eyes, arranged as if someone threw them at one side of the thing's face, let them stick, and then held up a mirror for bilateral symmetry. When you feed it you're pretty sure it makes eye contact with you.

    Why does it need pincers? It's going to rebuild itself when it becomes an adult, and it only eats goo and sugar water.

    This disorganized piece of bullcrap of a company...
    Sorry, gotta vent.

    Anyway, aside from totally unfairylike of us building a warren, we need to start squishing pods for sparkles. Soon. We have to many low-sparkle gurlz. They are just easy prey for any fairy raiding parties that come soon.

    Also, I suspect cunning comes with extra sparkles, unlike Trixie, who is hearing voices of the tg hivemind under that pinkish-purple mop of a hair of hers.

    1. Can we train ourselves in order to pick what powers we get next level up?
    2. Mobz are nice, but if there aren't any Waaagh-system in place, maybe we ought to supplement our grotz- I mean, bratz with save-or-suck techs, like archery (hallucinogen shroom), traps (sapped nets, pits, big rocks, springed branch, etc.), fortress-building, also some games like hide-and-seek (improve personal stealth/spot), tag and wrasslin' (stamina), etc.
    3. Nominating Bloomstar as waifu so that Twinkle got jealous and Backstab us!!! What tragedy! What drama! What fun!
    4. Ignore number 3
    5. Farm hallucinogen mushroom as commodity in exchange for sparkles
    6. In the same vein, try other stuffs like keeping Beetle and Larvae near magic source
    7. Waitaminute, investigate screams first, then farm
    8. IS MAH DRAWINK' GUD? Trixie was made in cute-mode, not alien-fae image. Should I do the others?
    9. Continue the thought that sparkles are yourself, that you-part-of-me 'philosophistry'; it fits
    10. I need more sugar
