We have recently noticed more activity to our North, with the as yet uncontacted human nation expanding towards our borders.Our second archer unit is now on the way to the borders, which have been fortified with trenches and hairtrigger traps. The scouts stand lookout with their rabbit mounts, and the archers are everyready for the foul Elven attack.A navy stands ready at our port, Cutlass Cove, and our emissary's to the Dwarves try their best to convince them to send aid, but are as of yet unfruitful.Seaside Town has grown in size, and is now a modest settlement.Our stockpiles bulge at the seams with copper and timber, and we have plenty of food saved.Truly we are prepared for what is coming.
We must be more ready for the happening.We must make ballistae!
>>23743887What's with that road along our southwest border?
I think we need infantry.
Create sheilded soldiers, explore mountains to the north. promise the dwarves a share of copper, and request they lend us some weapons or ore to use against the elves.
>>23743959I don't have a graphic for fortifications, shh
>>23743887We should develop better boats. We could easily strike from the sea against the elves.
>>23743982Have we even developed shields?That shit's not easy, making good wooden shields, and the best ones still have a nice metal core.
>>23743982Then trade with the dwarfs, just tell them that we want to buy some of their weapons/copper and start with something as small as that, dont try to make then our allies RIGHT NOW, just start a little trade between us and then slowly escalate things from there. Also create shields, we freaking NEED shields and lances, do eet OP or else we might fall against the Elf invasion!
>>23743989You should make graphics for the flags, with whatever they are corresponding to the graphic, ie: elf archers would be a (pink?) bow. Would make it easier to determine some things.
>>23744038We have plenty of copper, so we can make metal shields easily enough.
>>23744038fine then i'm sure we have some kind of footsoldier weaponry, we need another group of men fighting.
>>23743959Those are our carefully prepared fortifications, brother! As our navy harries our opponents they must choose to fight us now at a disadvantage in our lines, or later at a disadvantage with weakened strength. Truly, the time of our victory grows near.We must build a community center in the eastern city of the humans, that we may accept those willing of their number for service as men-at-arms. Some amount of our surplus can be paid into their people for service as men of the line, and allow us to better attack the elves from a position of strength.
We need to know more about the elven menace. Ask the dwarves if they have information on the capabilities of the elves, their armies, their weaknesses.Also, send ships exploring south of Cutlass cave to see the elven coastline.>>23743959that's fortifications/trenches
>>23744054[Spoiler]I agree, I'll program it in tomorrow[/spoiler]
With our surplus of copper we shall forge the best arms and armor we can for Those Guys Who Met DrinkingWith our surplus of timber, we shall construct... a GIANT... RABBIT! And present it to the elves as an offering of peace. And they shall take this giant rabbit, which is a tribute to our God so it would be war if they refused it obviously, back to their city, where, under the cover of night, Those Guys Who Met Drinking will burst out from within and take them by surprise, ransacking them from within.Then, when their military rushes back, Those Guys Who Met Drinking will flee to the dwarven kingdom as our Rabbit Cavalry pushes down the elven throat from the front.Meanwhile our navy will harry their fishermen to deplete the food supplies!
>>23743989In the future you should make little flag with numbers so we know which regiment is which.As it is, the flags being gray is just kind of non-descript and hard to know what they represent.
I think we should hold off on war for now. At least until we have a sizable force of Kobolds Warriors and enough War Rabbits to throw at our enemies. I'm talking, LOTS of War Rabbits. Zerg rushing with War Rabbits here. If they die, we eat. If they live, they breed a new generation.I call for dedicated burrows to raise an army of rabbits.TLDR: More War Rabbits
Tsk. If our human allies get taken over by the human anomaly to the north while we've been preoccupied with this little blood-feud with the elves, we're really going to look like stinkers.Well, so be it. For now, another squad of rabbitteers and a road from the University to Cutlass Cove should serve us well.
>>23744077This is just stupid enough to work. I agree.
>>23743887I'd like to put forth a motion for the University to start time travel research.
A Temple to our God and Ancestors must be raised! A tribute to the Rabbit gods, maybe imbue select individuals there godly rabbit powers?
>>23744077this will take a turn or two to prepare, so in the mean time, we should provision our defensive lines, increase our military, and request word from Yarmire on this other human nation
>>23744147As our positioning has strengthened us, time is on our side. Bolstering our war rabbit forces will serve us well, but for success in an out-and-out battle the martial strength of men will be necessary.Let us send some amount of scout rabbit cavalry to investigate the southern extremes of elf lands, that we may find opportunities to exploit their weaknesses.
>>23744213We havent even for a single moment, had any kind of belief or spiritual growth.Seriously, I dont think we've even developed a system of faith in anything supernatural.We're like ignorant/atheist or simply have chosen to not develop...at all...our sprituality.
I agree with the rest of the brobods, we NEED to make the rabbit force stronger and stronger and so our soldiers. I say that we must use this turn to investigate new forms to strengthen our army.
Those Guys have returned from the dwarven Keep with the diplomats. They bring but 2 units of ore - but this is no ordinary ore, it is IRON. You may utilise it this round.
>>23744264fuck religion, make rabbits!
>>23744275Iron swords, shields, or armor.
>>23744288fuck rabbits to make religion!
nak nak nak! The university needs to work on our proper science! As potent as it is dangerous, equal to magic and science or perhaps a mix of both! Alchemy is our thing and will be used in every branch of society.Also dire mutant rabbit fighters.
>>23744264Sure we have. We've developed a spirit of elven hatred. That's something, right?
>>23744275Iron armor for the cavalry.
>>23744264So... a faith venerating Rabbits?We should also consider making a unit of elite soldiers who mimic the strength of the Rabbit.Bunny Barbarians or something along those lines.
>>23744275Research time. Seriously, at least ONE of those has to be taken to our University and we need to study it, research it's capabilities, see it's limits, and send scouts to see where we could find this, and send diplomats to purchase/trade for the services of dwarven mineral/geologists to give us a location where we could find some in our area.All possible, easy to do, and would develop our relationship with the dwarves, too.
>>23744318Martial arts that have learned how to fight by looking at the rabbits? I can dig that....
>>23744275A single unit of Iron-Armored kobolds armed with iron shieds and axes would make a fantastic line-breaker.
>>23744335I second this motion, fellow Kobolds
>>23744218True but its much harder to keep a large force of men then it is a large force of War Rabbits.If we loose a Kobold, then our race suffers. If we loose a Rabbit, then our race benefits. We can eat a fallen rabbit and use its parts, and another ten rabbits are ready to takes its place. We can't say the same about our Kobolds.A single Kobold leading a pack of War Rabbits can be very dangerous. Lets build up our rabbits first so we have a buffer against attackers and focus on building our Kobold Army after.
>>23744341Exactly, this elite unit would be zealots who would fight with the same ferocity of our rabbit brethren
>>23744352Kobolds don't use axes, we use flails.
>>23744352sounds like Those Guys Who Met Drinking to me
>>23744275We must use this iron to craft fine mechanical bows with curves of metal. With these "crossbows" our cavalry will wield the power of archers, and the mobility of war rabbits!The enemy would be helpless at our feet!
>>23744352No, no, think about physics.Axes would be very, very shitty for us.Axes rely on mass and strength to be hefted.Kobolds are small and tiny.Spears would be better. Rabbits are fast as fuck, and our cavalry would be awesome as skirmishers using spears and hit and run tactics, and spears would allow us to utilize that speed better.
We should create a religion that believes in the inherent goodness of ALL CREATURES, also, there are no gods and no devils, only spiritsExcept ELVES who are LITERALLY* the spawn of the devil.not literallyIf there is a contradiction somewhere in this credo, it's okay, because religious people are really proficient in mental gymnastics.
>>23744318No, we must seek to emulate the cunning of the rabbit. See how they tunnel through the ground, emerging far away, with no-one above ground being any the wiser. We too can use such tactics. Honeycomb the lands of the Elves with tunnels. Emerge in the villages at night, steal with women, and vanish. Release hungry bunnies into their fields to devour their crops. Dig defensive tunnels in our own lands, so we may vanish into them if the Elves invade. Undermine fortifications, dig tunnels from the sea inland to poison their water supply with salt.
>>23744427Which is why we give them to the strongest and tallest kobolds we have. Maybe we should start breeding war kobolds. Maybe inter-mix with dwarves/humans?
>>23744433so, animism with a fertility flare since rabbits breed quickly and elves breed slowly
>>23744415All jokes aside, crossbows use pretty complicated mechanisms, and really good mastery over iron.We've barely begun to develop metalworking.We havent even mastered the basics of mathematics!
>>23744457I like this.
>>23744457That is pretty much what I was going for. I am just not good at explaining things.
>>23744457Truly this Elder speaks with the wisdom of a seasoned war minister. We shall commission in his name a force of those kobolds most experienced in earthworks and from them operate to confound and disrupt our foes. These Selous Scouts will offer up ill fate to elfkind everywhere!
>>23744466You want to start fucking humans?Eww.I dont think they'd be down with that either, brother Kobold.Maybe we should focus on short term, easy to develop technology and methods, rather than long term breeding experiments.Which we've never done with kobolds.(Maybe we should begin doing early tests in secret to see the feasability? )
>>23744335One unit of iron is given to the University. A very sensible move long term, my lords.You have another unit left.
We should find chickens soonalso, should be used to make Greco styled swords that flare at the tip after a forward bend designed to lop limbs off while riding past the enemyHave our hunters taken down anything fantastic? Something worthy of mounting as a trophy in Winterburg? or perhaps crafting into a warlord crown?
I might look idiot and new, but what's this game's name?
>>23744535If you mean the mapping software, it's something OP's still developing.
>>23744532For ranged weapon alchemy is good for poisons and other things, blowing darts.
>>23744516I don't want to start fucking humans, I want to make other kobolds fuck humans while I watch and make annotations.What? We haven't invented morality yet, so you don't know that what I'm doing is wrong.just kidding, I just want to breed some actual tough soldiers because kobolds are bloody weaklings.
>>23744518Fashion it into a spear, and give it to our strongest warrior.
What is the screenshot of? Is it a game, or some other kind of software, or a creative OP?
>>23744518Er, Councilor, another thing I thought-Should we like at least put more guards or strengthen the safety or at least prepare evacuation plans for the University?Like prepare underground bunny cart paths to evacuate our stuff and personnel?We're putting a lot of eggs in this tiny basket that happens to be near elven lands.
>>23744553perhaps we should plan to enslave the elves we capture? They would make good slave soldiers and those pointy ears would raise the standing of our diplomats in the eyes of other nations
>>23744560creative as balls OP using his own software
>>23744457I like this with one addendum. No open hostilities for now, don't reveal our advantage before we go to war. Keep this secret from the elven menace!I also agree with sending ships south of Cutlass Cove to explore East Elfdom, and with researching/weaponizing this iron as quickly as possible.
>>23744553We must hire on human mercenaries with promises of meat and lumber in exchange for their fighting arms. Your talk of interbreeding is ghoulish blasphemy at its worst!We would not sully our bloodline like so many half-elves!
>>23744593Councilor:>>23744593>>23744457>>23744503>>23744492>>23744570I believe we've developed early Mysticism, Concilor.It's time to erect a shrine/temple and prepare some Kobolds to be Shamen.
>>23744578I don't really trust slave soldiers though. I mean, even if elves are pansies compared to most other races, we should always remember: They ARE stronger then us. And have a longer reach. And run faster due to longer legs.
>>23744457I agree whole heartily with this idea! Kobold and Rabbit Sappers! And devastating crops is a grand idea! Let the enemy feed our rabbits for us! Genius!I'd gladly put rabbits towards this purpose.
Then Wow, go for it OP, i like it !
>>23744631>>23744577We shall worship the divine form of the rabbit. We shall emulate its ways, its tunnels. All fall before the rabbit, undercut to their very core. We shall dig 'neath the Elves' soil, undercut their very land while they know nout but sorrow! They will rue the day they treated us with contempt.
>>23744634They also eat more. And there are less of them than us.We should think about these things. We outnumber then, and can out breed them.And they do far less well in periods of less food.It's like we have our benefits and disadvantages.Perhaps a new field of study?Biology?CONTACT THE UNIVERSITY!
>>23744680YES We should study the INSIDES OF EVERY CREATURE, so we can LEARN ITS SECRETS
>>23744711I guess we could like bring back corpses of Elves. We could first take them to the University, and do research on their bodies, then take them to new-soon to be built temple?Wait, I've got an idea!Why dont we build our new RABBIT TEMPLE right next to the University!It's perfect! We can take our captives to be either be researched upon OR sacrificed!OR both!Conveniently right next to the other!AND our people can come to study AND present worship in a conveniently located location at the same time!
>>23744680We also see how many creatures can fend for themselves even if they are tinier or at disadvantage, I propose that we investigate the poison of the wild animals and incorporate it in our arrows to kill those elves DEATH.
So wait. What happens if we ever run into rabbit-people? That could be complicated.
Our navy sails South, scouting the area by the Elven coast, when suddenly they spot ships with triangular flowing sails, moving North - the fetid Elfkind take to the water in warships of their own. They look to match our number down to the very ship, do we trust our mere sailing skill to outdo them in naval combat?The tunneling has begun by the borders, and we are halfway to the elven lands.The university has begun trying to source this most excellent material in our own soil. They are as yet unsuccessful, but have hope.Those Guys await command, sitting in a rabbit arena pub in Seaside Town.We have constructed a temple-shrine in our capital which exists to teach Kobolds the ways of the rabbit - most useful ways in times of war.
>>23744766They are the chosen people, anon. Just like humans worship angels, we worship the rabbit-people.
>>23744755I like the idea of mixing religion with education. Strengthens each one. Just need to make sure the religion doesn't get out of hand.
>>23744779Even if they're allied with elves?
>>23744766we ride them all night long. Just us and them with wild abandon in the deep forests of our homes.
>>23744798Then they are the "devils" the humans speak about, traitors to their species that must be purged and exterminated before they reproduce.
Could someone archive the old thread on SupTG, perhaps?
>>23744775How many turns will it take to reverse-engineer their ship design?
>>23744782Naw, kobold brother.We'll ensure that researchers and shamen work together, by placing them next to each other, and making them work together on projects- respecting each others work makes people understand limitations and boundries and priorities.Besides, we seem to just be Animists, at best reverent people to the All Rabbit Spirit, not like super organized dioceses.
I think we should spend an action to move our lakeside navy to the ocean.We should also work of spearmen rabbit cavalry
>>23744856If it's still moving, and filled with the foul ones? Many.
>>23744775How goes our research into MATHEMATICS, Councilor?Wondrous secrets await us if we master this...most awesome of power.
>>23744820If we find the chosen ones mingling with the devils with knife ears, then we should not kill them. We should show them the light and bring them back to the path that is the Rabbit.
>>23744829Can you provide us an email address or something we could use to get on a mailing list for this? It's quite interesting all around.
>>23744883Fair progress has been made, but efforts now focus on obtaining more iron. If it pleases the council, I could redistribute focus in favour of this number science?
>>23744775HEY.I DONT SEE A GIANT KOBOLD EARTHEN DANEVIRKE BLOCKING THE NECK OF LAND BETWEEN ELFLAND AND KOBOLDLAND.MIGHT BE USEFUL.
>>23744775No reason to go into a fight where we are evenly matched, I'm sure we can do better than that. Retreat our warships for now, then see if we can get some daring scouts to take some faster, lighter ships around to finish the exploring job.This naval power is an issue... Any ideas?We might also want to investigate the fabled Northeast humans, as to not be caught with our pants down.Did the dwarves ever respond to our requests for info on the elves? We might be able to get some trade going with them also, they might like rabbit-fur cloaks.
>>23744913Absolutely not. Numbers may be of great use strategically, but the durability of this iron would grant us astounding battle strength, for which we gravely need.
>>23744948compensate for naval power by *huge* bows for coastal defense
>>23744913No, it's fine, I just think we should always have a task force developing and spreading this discipline, like, not lower our budget towards it.Mathematics helps us stay efficient, keep better organization, stamp out corruption , better record keeping, better science and research all around.I've even heard of this elusive secret of a...number that means ...the absence of something. I dont know what it is, but I've heard it's something our Kobolds are trying to understand.
>>23744930The straight brown line is supposed to represent our fortifications.
>>23744913Iron is more important for right now, the elves threaten us immediately. Perhaps this "iron" could be used to gain a naval edge?
If we still have a copper surplus, we should look into making the Arkoboldedes Mirror to set fire to their sails from afar, ask Smartest to look into it
>>23744973Oh okay, I was under the impression that it was an oddly placed road, since I just skipped to the bottom of the thread after I was afk for a while.
>>23745028That would only work as a defensive structure. We dont have massive cities on a coast.>>23745006If we're desperate to begin finding more, we could try to get some humans to help us locate some iron.They've got lots of strength and plenty of heft, we could supply some goods in exchange for some labor and help with locating iron ore.
>>23744948The dwarves, unfortunately, seemed quite sick of our diplomats' company by the time they had requisitioned the iron ore, I'm afraid.
>>23745006Are you suggesting that we somehow, "Clad" our ships with iron? Maybe, just maybe...
We NEED more Ores. We should expore the mountains in the north to find some!
>>23745088we don't have that much I'm afraidCouncilAdvisor, what are our statistics right now?
>>23745127>>23744775These are correct. The centre icon is iron ore.
I suggest seaside town look into a fishing port on our stretch of water, more food means more numbers. we need to strengthen our nations cities. Use the iron to arm an elite group of soldiers, they can either aid in the defense of the humans to the north, or protect cutlas cove
>>23745088WE DONT EVEN HAVE A SOURCE OF IRON.FFS.Everyone's got pie in the sky ideas with this mystical metal we dont even know how to forge into plows!>>23745080Yeah, let's leave them alone, Councilor.Give them a gift of foodstuffs and fine rabbit furs and give them thanks for their time.We dont want to break or risk long term friendship with a race that can probably kick our asses.
>>23744899This guy again. I've got to take off, is there some way to keep in touch and see how this project is doing?
>>23745230Just search my trip on foolz, I'll show up every so often. I'll make a blog or something eventually.
Somebody archive the first thread quick before it falls off the board.
>>23745257Someone did it.
one last up to date pic op?
>>23745388Our allies report roving gangs of gnolls approaching their borders, appearing across their lake.Will save next round for next time, I suppose, when do people want the next thread, if anyone's still around?
>>23745441It's 3AM, I'm tired, stop judging me, I can barely complete the captcha...
>>23745463Go to bed OP, its a good thread and continue it tomorrow, we can wait.
>>23745484Will do. See you then, try to conjure some plans if you will.
>>23745463We are pretty much evenly matched for now. Luckly, we're kobolds, so we reproduce by the dozen. So surely we'll outnumber them soon enough.
Our rabitteers will have to harry the gnolls but make sure to not press beyond human land, while we send Those Guys to the gnoll cities to entice them with plunder from war with the elvesThe iron needs to be made into heroic armor for Those Guys
Did we archive part 1 and 2 yet?
OP. How are you making these?
>>23745677Program he made himself.
I can archive the second part if someone can write the witty little text.
>>23745441Fucking TOLD you guys we should've left the archers there. That was their purpose in the first place, ffs.
>>23745690Well... Shit. That's kind of boring then. /eject
>>23746229Don't see how that's boring.
So...now that I'm too late to actually participate, anybody know what OP uses to make the map?
>>23747636I'm a fucking moron. Disregard. (>>23745690 answered me.)
>>23745690huh! When this is done will he post it up for others to use? Or perhaps he can give us specifications for the sprites so we can help him expand the program?
Don't mind me, just bumpin.
>>23750719You're my favourite person. Jus' working on coloured/numbered army icons.
>>23750785Aw you're pretty swell too, OP.
Also, here's the source of my graphics (some of them, anyway): http://opengameart.org/sites/default/files/hextilesets2-preview.png
>>23750951Ah, neat. Have you given much thought to the scope and setting of the game environment you're looking for here?
>>23751017What do you mean?
Is this an actual game under development?
>>23751127As in how much content are you looking to have and what range of styles of content do you plan to include.
>>23751197Uhh, whereever the players end up leading, I guess. I have a tonne of resource icons for different things, and the system itself seems fairly flexible thusfar.
>>23751137Not exactly, I hope to turn into into a 4x type thing eventually.
>>23751271Are the terrains and civilization development being generated by the software, or is it manual?
>>23751360Terrain is generated, nations etc are manual for the timebeing.
How do these icons seem?
>>23751479Bugger, forgot to code the icon-display code into player view mode... one moment...
>>23751517From left to right:Scout, Miner, Soldier, Hero, Navy?
Guys? What are you using for map thingy?
>>23751568It is OP's program, currently in development.Pretty cool, eh?
>>23751538I think thats the archer symbol, not a mining one.
>>23751592>>23751517Maybe the Archer flag should just be an arrow then, it's fairly easy to mistake currently if that's what it is.
>>23751573Aye. It does look pretty sweet.
Better? Worse?Certainly clearer...
>>23751517Why not make the icons on them more visibile? Color them, and the boarder around them, something VERY visibly different from the back grounds.I'd argue that rather than having mobile units for things like miners and such, things like that could be handled by resource icons within our territory. We just assume it's there to be exploited on a whim. We can construct specific things (like logging camps or mines) within 1 hex of them, and that makes them CONSTANTLY harvest, without us having to devote actions to it.
>>23751850Much! But is there a way to make them not only clearer, but smaller so we can see what type of terrain they're on?
>>23751850That is much better, and easier to understand.
>>23751856It's not a miner icon, it's an archer.>>23751867Possibly, but it'd mean that the icon and the terrain had different resolutions which is quite offputting. I'll look into it, but I'm satisfied for now tbh.
>>23751867>>23751886Here, how about this? Raised a little so you can see a sliver of the terrain. Circle icon lightened a bit too.
>>23751936Looks good.We need to get our archers over to the sea side it appears...also we should probably take a leaf out of the roman's books. Don't send our armies anywhere we aren't also building roads.
>>23751936TBH, it might be best to use the black banners from before and put silver weapons icons onto them. The red is really high contrast, and seems bulkier than it is because of the circular shape.
>>23751980>>23751936Actually check that, the banners should be the colors of their host nations so people can easily tell what faction each force is connected to. As it is it could get VERY confusing to tell who's forces are where.
>>23751997Seconded.Also, where are the gnolls coming from? Kinda confused on that.
>>23752001The very East of the known world. You can just about see some new borders on the far right.
>>23752015Ah. Thought that was swampy terrain. Thanks.
The kobolds won't be able to make a successful ground maneuver unless the elves are weakened significantly, but the elves aren't going to be able to push forward against kobold earthworks and traps while there are also archers and skirmishers in support.The kobolds have to reinforce their navy dramatically, and militarize the humans for service in their own defense as well as offensive operations against the elves.The Kobolds need to raise one more unit of ships and two human units of soldiers.
I am still around, just doing some coding for the timebeing.
>>23754215Godspeed OP, Godspeed
>>23754215just found this thread and i am very intuiged. My rating is B#/-7
>>23744775are you just rolling these events, and if so, off what table?
So, eh, we gonna play on or what?
Anymore to happen..?
>>23755377>>2375544710 minutes, almost finished a new feature...
>>23755477Sweet. Looking forward to it.
Our current situation:We have fortified the border to our Southwest, towards the elven lands. 1 unit of archers stands ready, dug into the terrain, and a unit of scouts performs nigh constant surveillance by the elven borders, ensuring we know their every move. Our other unit of archers is marching South to join the lines.Our sappers dig 'neath the ground, toiling away, growing closer to the elves' position with each passing day.We began a naval reconnaissance mission with our sea-bound navy, but we were interrupted when the foul creatures were sighted upon vessels of their own - they await your instruction.The fruits of our diplomacy with the dwarfs, iron ore, has been divided amongst our stores and the University, with 1 unit going to each. The research is going steadily, but results might take a while.Those Guys sit readily in a pub in Seaside Town.Our allies to the East report Gnollish borders enclosing around the lake to their East, and there is talk of them forming some kind of military force in case raids begin.
>>23755628confirming that there is interest!now reading
>>23755628relocate our archers down south.Also, we might need another army. Can we recruit some spearmen or something?
I get the impression that the whole council feels it would be foolish to stop the sappers now, and so one of our actions this round will go to continuing the siege efforts.The other action, however, I do not find a particular consensus upon...
>>23755628Who are "Those Guys"?
>>23755770Whats the other action?
>>23755628send rabbitteers to protect the east and diplomats to the gnolls, we need to know their intentions to determine whether we can use them or if we need to crush themI still say Those Guys should construct and hide in a giant wooden rabbit, gifted to the elves, then, under the cover of night, burst out within the elven city and wreak havoc before fleeing to the dwarven lands. Then, when their military returns to set order to their city, we push in on them
>>23755771i also would like to know this
>>23755771Those Guys Who Met DrinkingThey're the Smartest Kobold, the Strongest Kobold, the Kobold with the slickest tongue, and the best healertogether they fight for all of koboldom
>>23755793Send diplomats to Gnolls? Half-humans? Wasted educated people we could much better use at the university! The only language those animals understand is that of the sword!
>>23755814Move them north? I'd hate to be flanked by an unknown enemy.
>>23755814Ack. Those Guys.
>>23755628do our allys to the east have not ONE army? What a disgrace to our allience!
>>23755819all are inferior to kobolds, not to mention they are more attuned to our Rabbit Animism due to their animal nature. Who knows, maybe they are civilized, and if not, bet they would love roast elf
>>23755851Not one! But they assure me they will raise some (one, two?) armies shortly.
>>23755851they are pretty chill and they gamble their money away in our rabbit fighting pitswe should encourage them to make palisades and spearmen though
>>23755783That is up to you, my friends.
>>23755868I have been convinced. Send diplomats with the promise of elven stew
>>23755872Very well, lets investigate these gnolls a bit closer and see what we are dealing with and thus decided our next actionI say that we send another scout party to the gnolls to investigate them.
>>23755884Raise scouts in Seaside Town.We need more land! We need a larger population to help the war effort.
>>23755920Send them north.
>>23755902>>23755821>>23755793We shall send Those Guys to meet with the Gnolls, as well as continuing to construct tunnels to the elven lines.I shall report our progress shortly.
>>23755872Shouldnt we maybe supply them with the necessary copper to insure well armed allys?
>>23755960This seems like an agreeable idea, and little additional effort. I will send copper with Those Guys, unless there is any opposition to this order?
>>23755960they would have to pay for the copper with their surplus of food resources
Construct another navy, and attempt to hire soldier mercenaries from the humans for service in the great elven war in the south. We must begin disrupting the activities of the elves soon, in order to ensure their threat here is eliminated before it may grow more severe.
So am I the only one who think we should expand with two new settlements up north? On near the mountains to try and dig for ore, and another on the plains, were we shall grow food and produce younglings for our glorious armies?
>>23756026we have oodles of farm space behind our fortificationsore would be nice, but the elven threat comes fist
>>23756026I agree. We need more land.
>>23755993we suggest it
>>23756039But we should have a settlement with the sole purpose of providing men and food for our armies - also, we need more land for the rabbits
I believe we should create a new detachment of rabbit riders to go defend our allies our East from gnoll raiders. Maybe Those Guys could go on a mission to gnoll lands to find out info in the meantime?Long term, we need to break the naval stalemate. Maybe we don't need to win at sea, but I would feel much more comfortable with our ground invasion if we had better scouting information. Could we send some smaller, faster scout ships around the elf fleet to recon?>>23755851We agreed to protect them in exchange for agriculture technology. They are still worthy trading partners, have done some diplomacy for us with the dwarves, and we may be able to use them as infantry in the long run if we want to wage more conventional war. In the long run, we have basically annexed them diplomatically.
Our allies are very grateful for the copper surplus we have given them, and gift us much wheat in return before we even need ask for it!They proceed to raise two units of spearmen, posting one to their Eastern border, and sending one to assist us on the elven lines.Those Guys arrive in Yormire, and will continue travelling this round with no additional action points needing spent.A worrying development on the high seas - the elven vessels continue their motion North, sitting on the very edges of our borders, next to our only ocean going navy.A second wheat field is established, essential given the recent growth in Snarewood.The sappers have reached the edge of the elven territory, and now await instruction as to what to do.
>>23756098How do you hope for kobalds to outpace elves?
>>23756110We can't allow cutlass cove to fall. turn our attention to our navy. Also, see if those guys can turn the gnolls to mercenary work.
>>23756110I suggest building up another fleet as well as establishing more territorry in the yet untouched north!
>>23756098Perhaps last round we could have sent a few ships around the elven vessels, but given their current position, that would be most difficult.>>23756151There is a human nation towards the North with whom we almost share a border. We have yet to contact them. They are shown on the map with a Green border.
>>23756110sail our ship back to near our settlement, and rush construction on some form of long distance weaponry in the port, flaming ballistae perhaps? we need an advantage should the elves attack our shipthe sappers should proceed slowly, so as to not alert them in any waythey might be using the old chinese method of buried drums to detect mining
>>23756110Build a lot of tunnels below the elf territory to surprise them at night or hell, simply send our most brutal army of bunnies and make them appear from one of the many tunnels. The elves dont really need to know that we are attacking them, right ? For the elven vessels ? I have no idea...
>>23756181Too much honor, your highness!
>>23756194those sneaky bastards with their invisible borders! go east then.
>>23756217>>23756181>>23756151So it shall be, my lords.Additionally, the sappers will proceed slowly into the elven territory, potentially allowing a sneak attack from behind.I will update with our progress shortly.
Why are we expanding when we have an even threat to the south, possible threats to the east, and an entirely unknown entity to the north? This could go very awry...I vote for retreating the navy to Cutlass Cove, and training giant water rabbits to swim and board enemy ships.Link related: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Presidency_of_Jimmy_Carter#Rabbit_incident
>>23756211Blessed be he who honor the codex of the Fluffy One, that were given to us in ages long gone, from places deep within the earth were He dwell, and in our death welcomes us in his hole, may you forever walk on the path of the wisdom of the fluffy ones Concillor Meatonstick
Also, we need to decide the sappers' main goal. Is it to use as a one time thing, surprising the elvish archers by attacking in their midst? Or is it to get past them, to send raiders deep into elvish territory? Or maybe to sneak a while army past the elvish defenses?
>>23756312It is quite an honor to have you here today, priest. >>23756194But enough talk, I wish to know how is our food production and to ask if its possible to hold a party to boost both our relationship with our humans friends and to boost the morale of our soldiers.
>>23756312As was foretold in the oddly-shaped carrot!>>23756110what good do our naval troops on the lake do us? They are mouths to feed we dont need right now, it seems! Or do they have a function that I am oblivious to? >>23756284We need to expand to support our growing armies. It shouldnt be a huge aggressive expansion, but enough to get the manpower necessary for the impending war action.
Our expansion goes better than expected, and we now hold the two southern mountains within our realms, with the two peaks above them being held by the Northerners.Two settlements are created, the inhabitants of which await your command. We have begun digging into our food stockpile to maintain our population.Those Guys reach the Gnollish borders, and spy a unit of warriors armed with sharpened sticks. They look most fierce, so they head North to avoid them, happily stumbling upon the Gnoll capital.The sappers have done their job, and done it well. We now have 3 separate routes leading behind the Elven lines. They are too small for humans, but a kobold, and even his mount, are able to traverse them deftly.Another navy is constructed, but even then the Elven fleet holds fast... fools. Between the navy and the additional settlements, our timber stockpile is completely emptied.
>>23756327we should use it to establish small outposts which are annoyences to local towns, which in turn, would employ small groups of adventurers to eradicate them, thereby somehow entangling themselves in something far greater then them, eventually overcoming all odds and striking down a big bad evil guy.
we need to mimic our deity's strength at sea as well as land.devot some time at the university to making small stealth boats, allowing us to sneak upon the arrogant elven devils and riddle there boats with holes, or even attack rabbits upon the deck. they would not be expecting such a land based tactic at sea
>>23756327The way of the carrot teaches us to go under the enemy and attack him were he is weakest, that is, their capital!>>23756345We of the cult of the Rabbit wishes to add the wisdom and blessings of the Fluffy One and his Prophecy of the Odd-shaped Carrot to this most blessed of Councils.
What the game is this??
>>23756428Read the thread asshole. That's like the twentieth time that's been asked.
>>23756383the westmost settlement should plant wheat, while the eastmost settlement seems pointless. We dont want to cut down the woods where we have all our deer, and we dont have room for farms. Maybe let them look in the mountains for ore?Also, I am weary about the elven navy. Send one of our ships SLIGHTLY to the south.
>>23756383Begin excavation in the northern settlements (IronShard Anyone?) We should have exchanged maps with the dwarves to find out how far the dirty elves territory spreads.
>>23756383those mountains to the north look niceexpand to them ASAP
>>23756398THIS. KILL THE ELVEN DEVILS
>>23756443Hush! This is not the way of The Fluffy One
>>23756443dont fucking call him asshole, friend>>23756428coded by mighty OP
>>23756461We have to avoid spreading us to thin. Although our enemy lies in the south, we dont know what the north holds. We either would need to send a scouting party up before that or leave the mountains as a natural barrier. A barrier we can mine from
Alright fellow Kobolds, we are in need of both wood and ores so i suggest we try and get as much as we can by using one point for as far as i know, we are right now at war with the elfish scum. I say we need to do a full-out attack against the elf boat that has approached too close to our shores for our liking, we need to take down their boat and fast!
>>23756356The Elves require sustenance of the ocean to survive, with naval superiority we can deny them transportation and sustenance, guaranteeing our eventual dominion over their territories and strengthening our position in a land battle.We must strike and overwhelm their navies, and infiltrate our cavalry to strike the elvish defensive line from the rear as our archers attack their lines. When their defenses falter we must withdraw the majority of our force into our main city for reinforcement and to prepare for defense of the homeland from the north, should it be necessary.
>>23756383the Western settlement needs to begin farming. FAST. We also need that Iron (or other metal) in the north mountain.
>>23756398I like swimming rabbits more. Vicious, invisible masses of fury and hate that board them unawares.I am very worried about the Northern humans. We have no contact. We should probably send some diplomats, rather than just hoping things work out.We need to improve our food stores, planting wheat seems like a good idea.
>>23756547We do have that lake for them to practice in.
>>23756539I say, we sail around the boat and cut it off from reinforcements. Dont attack it. Why isnt it retreating?
Must. Get. This. Game.
>>23756547I suggest exactly this. Start farming in the west, send diplomats to the humans, if there is an action left, sail a bit southwards with a ship
>>23756573>GetI think you mean make, anon.
>>23756570With all due respect I believe that idea will lead us nowhere for who is to say that those mongrels wont attempt an attack of their own ? Worst of all is that we dont know the power of their ships and thus, we must attack before they unleash whatever they have in store.
>>23756456This. IronShard is a great name.>>23756383Raise Archers in Seaside Town and send them towards our boarders with those of the north.
>>23756547He speaks with much wisdom indeed - having looked upon the holiest of carrots, I have seen the truth of his council
Hey, OP, maybe you could start a kickstarter or something for it. It is really awesome, and I'm sure you'd get loadsa money as long as you don't Sarkeesian ti.
>>23756591>>23756547>>23756545>>23756446I shall have farms dug in the Western settlement. Our other action is still undecided.We can take both another action, and move a fleet if we wish.
>>23756623Raise another army when food supply is low? Not if we already have a dominant army! I am against it.
>>23756661Ah. Forgot about that. Then ignore the raise another army part. Farms instead.
>>23756636Investigate MT. above Ironshard for ores.
>>23756636send those guys to the capital of the Gnolls. Have them be prepared to move out if things get dicey
>>23756684Agreed, we need as much info as possible.I personally wish to start training the water rabbits on the lake with our second action, unless there's something more urgent to do.
>>23756721we only have one action left.
>>23756721Oh wait, sending an envoy to the Northern humans is way more urgent. That should be asap.
>>23756732I thought moving Those Guys wouldn't take an action? They seem to be independentish. If it does take an action, then I vote for Those Guys carefully going to gnome capital as action 2
>>23756746>>23756591>>23756570It seems settled to me - We shall send an envoy to the Northern humans, in addition to establishing farmland in the North West.Additionally, we shall move one of our fleets South a short distance, to gauge the presence of enemies in the unseen seas, and better position ourselves against them.
One force of rabbit cavalry and archers must take the tunnels and assalt the Elves' defenses from behind, as one unit of archers attacks the lines from the front.The navies must destroy the elf ships and advance to their coast to attack their ports.
>>23756787Ill drink to that! Anybody want a bit of meatonstick?
The digging of farmland in the Northwest goes poorly... one field is complete, with the ground barely scratched. The remoteness of the settlement at the moment seems to limit its abilities, with lack of manpower and resources.I have received excellent word from Kobolbridge - They have found IRON ore within our very lands, in the mountain to the North. Excavation work has begun, based at Ironshard.The university is ready for another research project - shall they resume their work on Mathematics? They say it seems quite promising, but they are willing to undertake another research if you would prefer.Those Guys reach Gnollburg. They observe a shamanistic society, devoted to nature - with a remarkable amount of hunting going on. Taken to the Chief Shaman of the tribes, they are given a chance to speak. Like their warriors, though, the Gnolls look very fierce - hateful, almost. Perhaps that's just their way. Is there anything pertinent you would like Those Guys to say?The diplomats have been dispatched to the North, revealing a small village with an as yet incomplete road leading nowhere. They are being escorted to the capital by some surprisingly friendly villagefolk.In the South, one of our fleets move South. It reveals an Elven fleet moving North towards Cutlass Cove, reinforcements for the first group of vessels. Unfortunately, ANOTHER fleet has been spotted, to the East of the Cove, moving in towards it. Our fleets await your orders.
>>23756894PS: Now, the next time someone asks what game this is and where it comes from, I'm going to find them and stick a Dire Rabbit up their bottom. I can somewhat appreciate not wanting to read a whole thread full of text just to find out something's source, but it's right there on the image now.
>>23756894The following suggestions shell be considered:1.) We need to build roads up to our western settlement - the poor infrastructure clearly halts its development2.) We should ask for food from our allys. Not demand it though3.) Strike the elven ship down preemptively, before it can join up with its cormrads. The war has begun.4.) send at least one of our troops through the tunnels, let them await orders
>>23756894We need to stop trying to match them at sea, and match them where we have the upper hand, land.We need an army of rabbit riders.
>>23756942Also, what do you think of the idea of a kickstarter for your program?
>>23756960There is no time to delay, we must attempt to destroy the first vessel two on one, and maneuver to attempt to fight the enemy fleet one ship at a time.We must send the majority of our forces through the tunnels to attack, and send a token force to attack at the elven lines. The sooner we can attack their port from the land the less enemy forces we will have to contend with in the future.
>>23756960of course 5.) mine for iron. silly me.
>>23756978Nah, probably not. I'll throw up a donation button somewhere or other when I get around to making it usable for other folks, perhaps. A kickstarter wouldn't speed up development or anything.
>>23756987What, are you mad? Attack over our safe little wall! Thats both risky AND unorthodox! The elder Kobolds strongly oppose it!
>>23756967Although councillor meatonstick speaks with much wisdom, I think we should follow the guidance of this one - the rabbit isn't made for the water - He was wrought from the great Carrot in the center of the world, and on the ground he and we must stay
>>23756894More ships, attack that isolated fleet. Try to wok out a mercenary deal with gnolls. we give them metal, and they kill elves.
>>23757005We haven't the range to engage from that distance. This is why we must outmaneuver the enemy to succeed.Failing to attack now while we have the advantage will cost us dearly soon.
>>23757045As much as I would love a conservative strategy, I fear you are right. First of all, we should send half our forces through the tunnels and then attack with the other half, thereby trapping the enemies archers
I'm >>23756967and I was here the other day when you started, I'll try my best to stay with these threads because they're utterly fantastic.
>>23757016I agree that we shouldn't try to be aggressive on the sea, but we need to be good enough to defend ourselves from seaborne invasions, like the one happening right now. That's why I liked the water rabbit saboteurs.
Any reason why we are not fishing in the lake? Let the elves waste resources on the water. If we can defend Cutlass Cove we don't even need to bother with the ocean right now.
>>23757087The oddly-shaped Carrot have never spoken of any rabbits in water - the cult will have to oppose such nonsense - We do however see the wisdom of the defense fleet
>>23757087Young people today and their hereticly modern ideas!
While we're figuring out what to do about the elf invasion, we should remember to tell our university to research something else (that doesn't take any actions, right?). Mathematics should be on the short list.As far as the military matters, I believe we should send 1 unit through the tunnels towards the capital, and 2 others to attack the elven defenders from behind their lines. The humans are more complicated, I can see them staying to defend the lines, advancing to help crunch of the elven defenders, or going to cutlass cove to take care of the invasion there. The ships should retreat to the port as orderly as possible.
>>23756147The Gnolls seem intrigued by the prospect of mercenary work in exchange for much copper - they have strong warriors, and seasoned navies. The Chief begins discussion with his fellows... Do you wish to pursue this avenue of discussion?
why not turn the water the elves fish from into a massive sewer? dump piles of rabbit/kobald waste, starve them out.
>>23757131It should not be banned since the oddly-shaped carrot has never spoke of something like that, if it had been against it then I would agree with you, but now we are in times of war and right now we need as much rabbit-power as possible and we are kind of weak at sea so training rabbits to attack the elf boats.>>23757193We also need raw power and gnolls are know for it, being only third to dwarfs and Orcs so yeah, we kind of need them right now so...
double tap the nearby fleetmove our kobolds down the tunnels, defending with the humansfish the lake as best we can, or establish a trade route with the dorfscontinue being friendly with the northernershave Those Guys expound about our nature based animism, but politely, no jihads. The gnolls could be greatly helpfulIron shard could use some hunters perhaps, same with the loner settlementresearch mathematicsstatus on the gambling pits?status on the shrine?
>>23757193Seconded for this plan.
>>23757193We should think of Expanding to the East and maybe start a town there, to trade with the towns in the south of our friends as well
>>23757131>>23757161How are you opposed to vicious swimming rabbits boarding enemy ships? They will be effectively invisible in water, perfect for defense and offense, and recruits our land advantage for a sea application. It perfectly mirrors our kobold affinity for asymmetrical warfare and traps.There are swimming rabbits irl just fyi.
>>23757243I proppose to call the western settlement West Loning! Also, I request a road up to said settlement. I will be damned if we cant get that rolling.
>>23757193We should definitely proceed with contract negotiations. We have need of two fleets of ships and a land based military, and we appear to have the resources necessary to contract that many for what time is necessary to complete the campaign against the elves.
>>23757243The rabbit pits are not doing their best, what with the number of Humans and Kobalds in the military, on the front.The shrine has attracted much attention, and similar ones are appearing across our nation, with no effort from us whatsoever.
Giving stick wielding raider gnolls copper so they can improve their military can only go wrong. Offer them the right to pillage the elves, and some rabit related products.Our army looks loyal enough to endure their first battle without loot.
>>23757276The only strategy for fighting on water with our fierce rabbits, is when it is dried out and there is land with tunnels instead
I am worried that giving the gnolls copper will create a long term problem for us. Our main goal right now should be stalling them out, until we take care of the elves. We don't need their help per se, but we do need them to be not attacking our allies for now.
>>23757336This one is destined to do great things in the elder portion of the council, I see it! Yes, do not diverge from the path layed before us by the oddly-shaped carrot! >>23757331offer them a little copper, and what they want to loot
>>23756960>>23756987>>23757243The lone Elven vessel will be assaulted by our fleets before reinforcements can reach it.Our second action is still undecided.
>>23757331nah it's fine, we'll just lure them into losing it all at the rabbit pitswhat could go wrong?
>>23757356I beg to differ, delay has cost us advantage on the ocean, and delaying any longer may prove fatal for our forces on land.A brief surge of powerful military force should allow us to easy grab and hold the upper hand.
>>23757221The Cult hold no regards for what is not mentioned in the prophecy of The Oddly-Shaped Carrot - while we are able to see the rationale behind your wishes Oh Great General, we are not here to be rational, but to honor the Great Fluffy One>>23757276You speak like someone who have never gazed upon the Oddly-Shaped Carrot - Rabbits in water - such unorthodoxy will not go unpunished by He who resides deep beneath the carrots and woods
Councillors, please vote on the act of Gnollish mercenaries being hired for copper and the right to loot.Reply to this post with your verdict
>>23757374I am sure that the Wise-Professors at the University would agree to build the road to our western settlementOf course they would have to pray to the weird smelling lettuce for a sign first, but that should not be a problem, given the power of the lettuce
>>23757442No Copper. Pelts and Food and 50/50 (or something) loot split.
>>23757470this was of course meant for >>23757442
>>23757442Naywe should concentrate on our own strenght, build the roads i say
>>23757336You - you walk with the grace of the most divine of Rodents - You are indeed destined for great things in this council
Giving the gnolls copper = gnolls with copper weapons on our ally's border. BAD IDEA. Our armies, with the human backup and the surprise of the tunnels should be able to secure a quick victory for now, gnolls unneeded. The elves have been investing in sea, they can't have a massive army.Send one army through the tunnels at the elf capital. Send the rest of the armies through the tunnels at the elvish archers. The humans I'm not sure about.
>>23757442Give them copper, promise them loot, make them do the hard fighting, kill them afterwards, take weapons and loot, declare war on them now that most of thier forces are gone - as have been foretold
>>23757535Has a proper argument, I change my vote, >>23757456to no.
>>23757580not the best policy when we will be at war.
>>23757580I do not recall this line of action as approved in the oddly-shaped carrot. Is this maybe from the teachings of the weirdly-smelling lettuce or does my memory betray me?
>>23757442No.>>23757512Narrow-minded fool. The rabbit is unbounded by land or water or any terrain. The heart of the rabbit is stealth, viciousness and fecundity. Why would we let our foes feel safe from the rabbit's wrath upon the water?
The council appears to have voted in favour. I will have our copper supply readied for transport once the battles are over.
>>23757593I too, change my vote to "only loot"
>>23757618agreed, that false prospect seeks to limit the most holy.
>>23757580I disagree, we already have the elves as our enemies and making gnolls our enemies would only give the damned elves more allies. For now we need even the disposable gnolls to fight against the elfish scum, then we shall see if their usefulness extends after the eradication of the monsters with pointy ears
>>23757442I vote yea.
>>23757618>>23757631I stand corrected... Those Guys will attempt to diplomance their way to a better bargain.Aside from attacking the elven fleet, what is our other action this round?
>>23757442not right now maybe iin the future but not now we can win in land with our current forces
>>23757618Because our feet would get wet
>>23757617you see, while it is certainitly heresy to go against the carrot, it is fine to act freely on matters it does not pass judgement on.
>>23757656attack thru tunnels
>>23757656build roads to West Loning, so they can be more efficient with their farming and start mining iron! those are probably half actions or something, right?
>>23757683>>23757656 I second this notion, the road is important for our future efforts
>>23757665listen to him, you fools, while he may be the youngest of the elder, he has been longer on this earth than most of you lot! We do not want wet feet!and >>23757656 the Gnolls wont be able to withstand the slickest tongue in all the kobold lands!
>>23757656thank God Those Guys have the Kobold with The Slickest Tongueroads for more food production though
Unless there is any harsh opposition, the construction of a road to West Loning shall comprise our final action.
>>23757617It have been foretold by 'The Cloud-that-totally-looked-like-a-carrot' Only few have seen it, but I have myself written a theses on it, although the leave of lettuce used to write on have now almost decayed completely - and thus the knowledge and wisdom soon be lost.>>23757597You dare speak against The Fluffy One?
>>23757745You fools, if we attack only on one front, we shall be destroyed! We must send our military thru the tunnels, and catch them fully unprepared, and, when we have parts of their lands, our moral shall be boosted.Surely we must attack with our land forces as well, the road can wait, the war, it seems, is already here.
>>23757618Heresy, Heresy! Ban him from this meeting, and let him be banished by The Cult, may his spirit-rabbit-form be tormented forever in the carrot-less depths of his so beloved sea
>>23757752I do not wish to speak ill against your teachings, but I know my soldiers too well to know what must be done. We are right now not in a position to go against the gnolls without a big told in our forces, for now we must concentrate against the elvish scum, the rest will be decided after our victory
>>23757665>>23757718Ah, of course, our sailors on our ships have maintained dry feel the whole time. Same with the saboteurs tunneling through the dank elven soil.Face it, if you are worried about a little moisture, you do not have the fierceness of the rabbit. How shall our foes stand before us with a terrifying water rabbit corps?Did you ever read Three Skeleton Key as a kid? Go read it right now if you haven't
Rolled 23+ - We attack through the tunnelsElse, we construct infrastructure.Also, I will start a new thread to deliver the update, my friends
Rolled 5>>23757859meant a d6
I remember a day when the council cared not for this bickering, or for such folly as committing to a war against gnolls. It is our calling as Knolls to exterminate Elves where we may find them, and it behooves us to entreat with the gnolls for this purpose.Let us engage and destroy the elves as we can, quickly on water to minimize our disadvantage, and from both sides on land to maximize our advantage.Then, when they have fallen, we may cultivate their lands for our own trade, profit, and prosperity.
Rolled 1>>23757873So it shall be.We shall launch and assault on the Elven vessels, while simultaneously attacking them through the tunnels.Meanwhile, Those Guys shall barter with the Gnolls.
>>23757884*KoboldsRemember bretheren, it is our grand charter as Kobolds that we must grind Elves from the earth as the rabbit chews grass, that the creatures of the earth may not suffer the Elf to live!
>>23757884Elder Inherent of Infrastructure! Your appearance brings much peace to my heart, for your council is indeed wise and in tune with the way of the rabbit
>>23757884I am truly glad to hear from you, Elder, and your words are wise as always, although I cant, for the life of me, deduce who you mean with "bikering"?
>>23757933Ahhh, a wise man, twice as old as I am, and 4 times as old as the rest of you. What is your opinion on the myth of the swimming rabbits old friend?
>>23757884This Kobold speaks nothing but true! You have my sword, Elder!
>>23757884I agree with nearly everything you say.I would like to keep the copper off the table in the gnoll negotiations.I would also like to move the human forces back to the Cutlass Cove. The ships might be an invasion fleet, and we will be in a sore spot if elven rangers go marauding through our territory.
>>23758032That rabbits may swim is a truth known to us, but for the life of a fighting rabbit to be lost to the grasp of the waters is a tragedy for the Kobold people, denying us the food of its flesh and denying rabbit kind breeding stock of the veterans of war.Let our bold rabbit cavalry continue to serve, and allow us to further test our mettle on the ocean, that time and experience may teach us a better way of turning our strengths against our foes.
