[C]It is winter now, and energy will be hard to come by. Venturing forth into the freezing air would end up killing the machine men, so in an attempt to conserve energy most of them go into the organic equivalent of hibernation inside the machine mother, the remaining thirty of them start researching their bodies. Finally they complete their task, they have now commited a blueprint of how machine men are built to memorey, all they need now is to figure out how brain cores and energy cores work._____________The CaveA.

>>20417530C start researching our brains
>>20417530c because i cant into peer pressure.
[C]The machine man brain core is a strange device, it's covered in a thick shielding of bronze, lights glow inside of it and dance mysteriously. One is opened carefully, inside there seems to be dozens of copper panels carefully wired together, the panels themselves have odd patterns on them, and electricity runs through them. To be perfectly honest nobody has the faintest clue what they mean.A human has knocked on the gate, when allowed to enter he says he speaks for the villages chief. Apparently a huge dire wolf has been eating villagers every few days, and the warriors' weapons don't harm it. He asks on behalf of the village for Telok to hunt and kill the beast. The machine men tell him that the cold freezes our joints and dooms us to a frosty death. The man said he could lend Telok (1H) with some furs, and perhaps that would solve the problem._______Frost BiteA1: Send 1H to hunt the beast, wearing the furs to perhaps keep the cold at bay.B1: Lend some bronze weapons to the villagers.C1: Do nothing.D1: Your suggestion._____________The CaveA.

>>20417751A1 AND B1. We have H1 go with some villagers armed with bronze weapons.
>>20417751A1C try making another brain by carefully etching the patterns into new panels. then connect them with wires.
A1 and B1, because its the gentlemanly thing to do.
>>20417791This also C
>>20417866Another vote for C. Also, shouldn't the villagers be listed as our allies?
>>20417751 A1/B1I like the A1/B1 combo C.Lets start learning about them brain cores.
Does it make sense to give 1H furs? Does he even produce enough heat? Does his engine heat up enough?
>>20418068Why dont you want viking 1H huh?
>>20418107Shit! Scrap my retarded question. Let's get some viking necron hunter up in here.
rolled 75 = 75
>>20418418High numbers are good right? Right?
>>20418469it depends who he is rolling for
>>20418469No, no they aren't.
[C]The machine men try to mimic the pattern, but they require finer and smaller tools to be able to replicate it perfectly, an the machine men themselves can't replicate perfectly due to freehanding it. However at the end of the week they end up with a rough duplicate of the brain core, they create an extra set of copper wires to transmit the electricity and slap it in a bronze shell. They built a new body for the brain core from spare parts and put an energy core in it. What is created is quite surprising. It's a machine man, it moves and walks, and can follow orders, but something is missing. It's dumb, it can't speak, it most definatly can't think for itself. Spare parts are starting to run out.
[A1/B1]A shipment of bronze weapons is given to the villagers, 1H wears a thick fur armor on his body and begins to hunt the dire wolf with the village warriors. The friction aswell as the small portions of heat radiating off of the energy core allows 1H to stay warm enough to move comfortably. The beast attacks the day after 1H arrives at the village. A few warriors manage to wake up in time and help him kill the beast. The beast is about the size of two grown men, and kill two of the three warriors. But 1H managed to cleave the beasts left foot off with his sword and stab it a few times in the ribs with his spear. However the wolf was more concerned with the man, and pounced ontop of him. The man was surprisingly strong and held off the beast long enough to ram his spear through it's chest, the beast yelped, but was not dettered for long. 1H ran up behind the wolf and lifted it off the man by it's head. Once the beast had lost it's speed advantage it was no match for 1H's strength. "I have come to destroy you." 1H said right before crushing the wolfs head, blood and guts covered the battleground, but strangely enough they did not bathe in the good river, they were taken to a seperate pond to wash off the blood. The next day 1H was celebrated as a hero, and 1H gained just a bit more sentience. The surviving man was also praised and given the positiona as captain of the warriors. The warriors were now becoming an organized military under the command of the captain, whose name was Brian.

[C]The machine men create some stone molds of the spare parts, it'll take some more work before every part is molded.[D]A group of five heavily armed machine men go with 1H and enter the mines in the hopes of killing some of the bane spiders. Everything goes well for the first few hours, they manage to kill many bane spiders, they were ambushed and surrounded by at least a hundred of them, and defeated. None have returned, and they are presumed to all be destroyed._____________The CaveA. Try to improve settlement.B. Try to improve armaments. (Bonus)C. Try to improve technology. (Major Bonus)D.

>>20419031...C. Develop the molds.
>>20419055Cancel my vote. Change it to C. We need those damn molds.
>>20419055Please tell me you're not going to accept the obvious troll posts, Dorf.
>>20419096Wasn't a troll post. We are running out of power.
>>20419031Why did you take the spider attack option? Only one person wanted it.
D.) Shut down all but a few for the remainder of winter.
>>20419132There were 2, and since it only took 6 bodies, you can accomplish other tasks as well.
>>20419031We need to find a way to get more energy stored and produced to last us for this sort of time.
>>20418541The other vote for kill the spiders came before we killed the giant wolf.
>>20419055>>20419132If it doesn't take alot of manpower and nobody votes against it I do it. No whining allowed.
[C]The machine men contiue working on the molds. After many days the last of the molds are finished and stacked with the others, now we need to figure out how to make wires and energy cores.Strangely some of the machine men have begun to mourn the loss of 1H, he was somewhat of a hero among his brethren.[D]The rest of the machine men are powered down, only 5 men remain, the energy stores shouldn't empty now.There is banging on the doors, something is trying to get in.

>>20419557Finally, a good roll!
>>20419603That roll was for our warriors... say good bye
[C]Upon inspecting the energy core they find strange blue stones, they glow faintly, nobody knows what they are, but there are hundreds of wires connected to it. The machine men notice that the wires have a copperish color to them, in a fools attempt at creating wires they try to mimic it's shape, they work just as well as the spare ones.[A1]The five machine men arm themselves with stone armor, stonze shields, bronze spears and swords. When they open the door a flood of dozens of goblins rush in, presumably the ones from the collapsed cave. They fight ferociously, but they are no match and are felled quickly. The bodies are thrown off the mountain._____________The CaveA. Try to improve settlement.B. Try to improve armaments. (Bonus)C. Try to improve technology. (Major Bonus)D.

>>20419728Just to confirm everything is asleep and the goblins havn't killed us all? Not sure what we can do really. The thinkermen still up and running?
>>20419728Investigate an alternative power source for winter months.
C: Create and refine tools until we are able to mimick the brain cores perfectlyAlso a question: Do the spiders melt upon death or can we use their corpses to carve some acid-proof armor for a future strike team?
>>20419728C lets make us a brain.
[C]The machine men try to create another brain core, hoping that this time they could mimic it perfectly. This time they did it a little better than before, but their hands aren't steady enough. The patterns from the spare brain cores are perfect, not even one flaw. To replicate it...It's impossible for them. They have created another primeman. We now have five men worth of spare parts, five brain cores, and five energy cores. We could certainly use the extra machine men, and we already know all we'll know about how we're made, besides the blue energy rocks, which the machine mother assumes has nothing for us to learn of._____________The CaveA.

>>20420013C investigate alternate powersources.
>>20420013C. Alternate Energy is needed. Maybe scout for some thermal springs?
>>20420013C. Other power sources would be nice. And if we have enough time maybe shore up the front door a bit.
>>20420013C. Need more powa.
>>20420013C.)The machine mother originally gathered enough power to wake five of us from water slowly. Dripping from the wall. Perhaps this means there is a subterranean water source nearby? Better yet, one we can connect directly to the mother. I say we investigate this.
>>20420242If I can remember Op said something about a snow drip off from the mountain gives the machine mother power.
>>20420262Yeah you rember correct its the ice frozen at the top of the moutain melting.
[C]The machine men experiment with coal burning, they begin to recognize that heat is an energy source, maybe they could gather heat from it. They experiment with different machinery designs to gather the heat from it but to no avail, their bodies aren't suited for thermal energy either.A knock is heard at the door, learning from their previous mistakes they brace th door and try to communicate. To their surprise it's a human, he is invited in. He calls himself Bernard the wolf, a self-proclaimed adventurer from the river village, he wears some thick leather armor and helmet, he wields a bronze sword. He says that he has aquired many items on his journey and would be willing to trade them in for some bronze armor and a bronze shield. He shows you the contents of his backpack.He takes out a heavy yellow bar, "Ah, gold, a secluded mining village of short men gave this to me after I cleared their mines of spiders, this is a valuable commodity and is desired by all!"He takes out a glass flask of a black liquid, "This is something you will like! Oil, it apparently is used to grease the wheels of carts."He takes out a yellowish parchment, "Maybe you don't need physical items, maybe you need knowledge! This map details all of the special location and villages i've found, I will not lie however, this map will not show the entirety of the dragontail mountains, mind you that's what these mountains are called by the outsiders."You may only choose one.

>>20420325C1. We need more intel.C: Maybe create some kind of steam engine? Im still not 100% how the machine mother makes energy itself.
>>20420332C1We require knowledgeAlso ask him if he knows of any people in this area of the mountain other than our river peopleC continue looking for ways to gather more energy whether through making a waterfall waterwheel or other
>>20420332D1. Get him to instruct us in the knowledge of fucking up the spiders shit so we can avenge our hero.
>>20420332C1.C. We know how our bodies work. Now let us think on why it works and try to develop our understanding of machines.
>>20420375seconding this. We need more spider killing knowledge.C. Keep on teching up.
>>20420375For this I have a idea guys. We know spiders die to fire and the major strength they have is numbers. We should then work on chemical based advancements next month and try and build a flameable liquid we could toss that spreads then light the spiders joint on fire tossing more and more fire untill we smoke them out.
>>20420410Also, fuck the map, guys. We don't need to know about them. Let's go for the oil.
>>20420332B1B. Research flammable weaponry
>>20420563...Thats a good idea. I'm going to go for it.
>>20420613While we are at it lets ask him if he knows anything about the spiders such as easy way to kill.
[C]The machine men try to create some sort of machine to transfer the thermal heat into energy, but every attempt has ended in failure, the machine men are going to need more help if they wish to make use of thermal energy.[C1]Bernard the wolf thanks the machine men, they craft him some fine bronze armor and a shield, he gives them the map. The map is quite interesting, it speaks of a mining village of short creatures called dwarves to the west (brown dot), and a grove of living trees to the northwest (teal dot), just a mile to the west is a waterfall next to a mine of some sort, the machine mother recalls her scouts telling her of this waterfall, yet they never had a chance to colonize it. To the northeast is another mine, apparently Bernard cleared it out, and there are some strange red rocks inside of it. To the east is a large camp of brutes (red dot.) Before he leaves the machine men ask how he dealt with the spiders. He laughed and said that their webs were quite flammable, all he needed to do was smash oil flasks everywhere and set it afire, the spiders practicly killed themselves, he just mopped up the survivors.It is no longer winter, spring has taken over and the trees are regrowing leaves, the world is full of life once again. The 5 machine men go to the village and gather their energy from the dam, they also take note that there is an inn in the village, when they enter it they notice it's full of not only townsfolk but also a few adventurers.They return and awaken all of the machine men, they need energy soon.

>>20420885C. Get powered up before researching ways to light the webs on fire.
>>20420885C. Lets get some more tech. Make a better battery or something. Oh what is the maximum range a machine man can go without a charge? IF its far enough maybe send a scouting team to that waterfall/mine
>>20420924On a full charge? God knows, on a full charge they can do anything for about month before they need more energy.
>>20420910We need a way to move the fire from the fire. Sticks have yet to be invented.
>>20420988 Thank you very much! Next turn definitely scouting
>>20421014Is this nigger serious?
>>20421014We also haven't invented air yet for the flames to burn don't worry that won't take long.
>>20420885D charge up and send a scout to the waterfall mentioned on the map.If it is only a mile away we may be able to harness the power there and have it connected to our settlement via a cave and a construction
[C]The machine men try to improve upon the energy cores, but it's essentially just a blue glowing stone connected to wires, more of this blue stone is needed. Instead efforts go into carrying the water from the diverted river. Containers are made from bronze to haul the water up to the machine mother to make use of her built in waterwheel and generator.[D]Most of the manpower has gone to collecting energy, and with some devoted work they easily stabalize their energy income, more dams would make their jobs much easier however.A man has come to the machine mother, a hardy looking lumberjack by the name of Galfred, he asks the machine mother if she would condone him building a house under the mountain to cut wood and haul it to sell at the village, he would bring his wife and child, and some other lumberjacks are thinking of moving under the mountain. He says he would help in any projects or endeavours, all that he asks is protection, respect, and his freedoms.______The LumberjacksA1: Accept.B1: Decline.C1: Kill him and rape the corpse.D1: Your suggestion._____________The CaveA.

[A]The machine men build two more hydroelectric dams using turbines. We use up two energy cores, strapping them to the dam, they are charged by the dam quickly. The colony is now ran off of the dams, no need to use machine men to gather energy manually. In addition the crushed outpost is rebuilt, there are now once more five outposts on the mountain path.[A1]Three families move in just under the mountain near the forest. They start chopping wood and living peacefully under the shde of the mountain.[D]A scout is sent to explore the waterfall/mine. He doesn't return.[D]An exploratory party is sent to the northeast mines where Bernard supposedly cleared out some creatures, they bring back a few dozen red stones that glow faintly in the light._____________The CaveA.

Someone wana save it for him? I dont trust my abilities of getting around to it.
[C]The machine men study the red rocks, at first they try to connect them to brain cores and energy cores, no reaction. Eventually they figure out that they create fire easily when dragged across rough surfaces, and that if they are exposed to flame they burn eternally, even in water.When asked about steam the lumberjacks seem confused, "Steam? Of course, heat up a pot of water and it turns to steam, what of it?"A strange black rock has fallen from the sky and hit the side of the mountain, from it sprouts out a strange alien seedlings, it quickly takes root and soon a strange blue tree grows off the side of the mountain._______Tree HuggerA1: Cut it down!B1: Study it.C1: Do nothing.D1: Your suggestion._____________The CaveA.
