Our forces are back in friendly territory, and Those Guys have been deposited at the Northern capital. Moreso, our elite Rabbitear cavalry is now fully mended, and ready for deployment.As it turns out, the King is weary of sitting in his chambers. Even the slickest tongue in the known Koboldiverse cannot soften the news that we have not wiped out the Gnolls completely. He is unhappy with the current state of affairs, having lost one of his beloved Royal navies to what he deems 'your war'. He scowls at Those Guys as he removes a tiny model ship from atop his atlas, retracts his naval support in the conflict, and retreats to his secure throne room. Fortunately, we are told the Elven and Gnollish navies are entertaining each other - for the time being, anyhow.The Academy has been succesfully converted into a stone bastion. Outside its hardy walls stand two fresh units of spearbolds, clad in the finest iron.Works elsewhere go less bouncily, with our attempts to upgrade housing in Snarewood yielding little due to scarcity of stone.The University of Kobolbridge is set about with our meek stockpile of tin, attempting to imitate those Northern humans with their 'Bronze'.If you're new, welcome to micro-nationbuilder! Please use spoiler tags for OOC discussion. We currently have 3 actions per turn, I'll take the most popular actions, if there's no consensus I'll roll off to make a choice.
are the threads not getting archieved anymore? what the fuck happened? elves?
>>23894273We should develop our culture.
>>23894273Everything seems better after a good, long night of sleep. Well, everything except for this mess here: The Gnolls still undefeated? Our food-supplies still decreasing?What was the high council doing after I went off to hug Kurts Mother?
>>23894334I'm afraid 2 of them dropped off the board prior to archival. 1 was just a dev discussion, however.>>23894353I got banned for trying to post my textures and resources for a fellow programmer bro.
>>23894273Send gifts to the northern human king. We should mend our relations.Increase efforts into stone mining.Station troops in east human land. they lost their men, we should defend them
>>23894353What? Did you hug my niece? What is your reasoning behind this!Also, I have returned! I unfortunatly fell into a temporary coma after getting quite a bit beaten up by some of those Gnolls, and I am afraid I am not that well informed about the state of afairs. Did we win?
>>23894383Yes to the stone mines, the King can wait for the time being: We will put up a Monument of Kob Oldinand once we are finished, to show our gratitude towards his nation.But we really need to do something about our food storing and food gathering methods.(Not to mention the food gathering methods of the Gnolls)
>>23894383I gather the northern humans abandoned us. I do not see honor in mending any relations.We should establish fishing grounds at cutlass cove
>>23894412oh yes, brave, made up Kob Oldinand shell recieve a monument as soon as possible!
>>23894411Your nephew Kurt told us to hug his mother... although I am quite sure the note was only addressed to him.Anyway, I had some time before going to bed, since did not find a carrot to sacrifice to the One who dwells beneath yesterday.
>>23894439Maybe a Stone-Monument would be a nice choice
*Cleaning*By the odly shapped carrot im early.how about1. have hunting party, get food.2. further develop our mining system.3. speak to the dwarves about conversion?also with the more popular use of stoneworks, i would keep siege equipement/ techniques in our mind for later study.
>>23894463acceptable. If we can get the dwarves on board, maybe we can imprive the union academy even more.
>>23894463>>23894505>>23894524So it shall be.Will update shortly.
>>23894545Wait a second.Are you a Night Elf?
I would love some kind of indicator on how large our population is, and how much food we're consuming because of it. Create fishing grounds at cutless coveestablish mines in the mountains again.plant more wheat/work on irigation
>>23894273Last night, I did sleep (I slept well, thanks for asking) a lot, and I had some quite weird dreams. But between all these "thight tunnels" and "crawling through wet mud" I did notice something.Our beloved Rabbits have really long ears. And so does the great fluffy one.I think we can use these long ears, and have them listen to what our enemies/neighbours are up to. I don't say we spy on them, just passively monitor what they are saying.I suggest we establish some sort of "secret service" with our Rabbit friends (although I understand that sometimes the messages might be hard to understand, maybe even misleading, I still think it is worth a shot to gather more information)
>>23894583well...Gnolls could control wolves, I'm sure noble kobalds could communicate with our great rabbits!
>>23894583I agree, some way to see into the fog of war without having to dispatch expensive troops would be most agreeable.
>>23894646I don't think this could reveal the fog of war... And if, then only in a very small area.I was more thinking of a small note on the boards in the halls
>>23894273Do my eyes deviece me or did we not even destroy Gnollcoast? What happened?
The hunting party is attended by a modest collection of Kobolds, and a few humans. There are no lords, or nobles, or wealthy men here - this event has attracted only the most devoted, hardcore hunters from the known world. Many a 'bold sits upon a fierce looking rabbit mount, and a few of the Eastern humans have strange new mounts of their own, apparently purchased in the far West, by boat.The hunt begins! the echoes of great slaughter ring throughout the forest, and soon the tables sit full with felled game. An enormous elk is toppled by a team of human and kobold stalkers, and attracts attention from far and wide. Some say the antlers from this magnificent prize should be mounted in the centre of Snarewood, a symbol of its hunting roots, though a few days later a wealthy human offers much wealth for the ornament. I await the council's decision, perhaps you have other ideas.The discovery of a second vein of iron ore by Ironshard has reinvigorated an ailing industry. many fresh recruits have moved North from our crowded and poverty stricken Capital.It seems the Dwarven lords are quite sick of this 'rabbit nonsense', and upon our diplomats arrival we are notified that within the delves the religion is close to being completely outlawed... The loss of cheap labour to our nation in the form of migrants has struck a nerve with the cushy nobility, and the erosion of their industry as a result has made them most agitated. While the poorer citizens amongst their civilisation still revere the holy rabbit, but those towards the top, with the most power staunchly refuse to have faith, like the fools they are.Spring is drawing to a close, the warmth of Summer is on the way.
>>23894765That appears to be the case, however it makes no difference, since we couldn't stop the Gnolls before they have a chance of using our tools, the best course of action is to fall back and fortify our realm with these new stone walls.
>>23894765The council did not seem to want to raze the settlement - and before we really had the chance, the appearance of the elves brought about a hasty retreat.>>23894581The coding for the population stuff is very nearly finished. I'll try and tweak it in between updates.
>>23894776Improve stone mining.Set up a farming community across the lake from seaside town, this will reduce crowding in the capital, and increase food.Build us some ships.
>>23894776Can the antlers somehow be recreated and attached to our rabbits?That would make a most deadly rabbiteer.
>>23894776can we send scouts to the edge of the norther gnoll territory?
>>23894776What riches does he offer? I am inclined to give Snarewood their trophy.The dwarves are to follow the carrot as we do. But we are in no position to bring it to them with the sword. Thus, I propose to pass a dogma that the Lord of a Land that worships He Who Dwells Beneath is approved by the Great Fluffy one and that rebellion is a great sin. That should make it more attractive to the dwarven Lords.
>>23894856second foundation style! make obedience part of the rabbits creed. one action point to priesthood reform and organisation.
>>23894856Rabbits. With. Antlers.
>>23894796but we have a huge army! Cant we still take Gnoll Coast?
>>23894856He seems to have amassed many Kobollars, though he is also wealthy in the more widely traded Dwarven currency.
>>23894912I think we should keep them where we are. Morale is important.
>>23894856>>23894911>>23894932I dont have my name on! Unaccaptable!
>>23894856I honestly don't think we should anger the dwarves more.However:Only those who believe in the ways of the carrot are allowed to walk in the Realm of the One who dwells beneath. It is my understanding that Dwarves are mining a lot, and if they don't believe in the cause of the carrot, then this might anger the great fluffy one.Let them know that bad consequences lie before them if they don't stop their pagan ways.
>>23894939I almost didn't recognize you without your nametag Counsillor "Onearm-Scarface"
Give the antlers to the bravest hunter.make the antlers a symbol of great merit, to be given to our heroes.this kobold or man will be known as the Huntmaster!!
>>23894977so you are of the impression that introducing a new creed that may be benefitial to their ruling class is more likely to anger them than trying to intimidate them? I cant follow your reasoning
>>23894912Is there a chance of attaching antlers to our Rabbits honoured Advisor?
>>23894367>banned for posting resourcesDoes this mean you're not allowed to post the software you made when you finish it?I push for reform in the capital city, for our people must not suffer. Set a price to train people to hunt, then send any profits and all catches from these courses to soup kitchens for the poor.
>>23895004If you put it that way...We still should talk about our espionage-system
>>23895008Certainly not Elk antlers, no. Perhaps our fine university could be set to research this, when they are next available.
>>23895023Auto-banned for positing a banned URL - the file upload side I put the .zip on.
>>23895033Then I support the notion of boosting our morale.(but at least listen to his offer)
>>23895033so much has to be researched! So little time! The Gnoll war had to be won, the way it is now, we are severly limited in our resourses
>>23895053Yes, but with the Gnolls likely gaining strength, I say we should fortify our realm against a possible attack.
>>23895065but we also need to be able to feed our popolation in a drawn out siege!
>>23895023>>23895079Match made in heaven
>>23895079So build a farming settlement across the lake. we move eccess pop out of the capital, increase food production, and expand our borders
>>23895079So we should increase our food-storage, food-supply and other resources along with the building up of a defence line
>>23895112That sounds like a plan, but it will take time
>>23895112>>23895120>>23895130dont forget the bloody relgioiuse reforms!
>>23895130We can start. there are a large number of kobalds starving in poverty and cramped conditions. I'd say they'd serve as a good workforce to build a new home for themselves.
>>23895159>>23895130>>23895120>>23895112We shall enact religious reformation, expand our borders, and construct the settlement this round, before building farms in the near future.Is this agreed?
>>23895159As part of this we could make it part of the dogma that a Holy lost carrot is burried under our stone deposit. have our people dig devoutly?
>>23895180can we construct the settlement without increasiing our population?
>>23895198We most certainly can. The opposite would be most difficult.
>>23895180Yes. Be sure to make the majority of the settlers kobalds from the capital who need homes.
>>23895205Then I'm in favour of this, but isn't the new settlement part of expanding our borders?Cant we just start with securing food-supplies/our realm right away?
>>23895224What are you obsessed with the peasentry and their wellbeing? They are perfectly fine where they are, feeding spiritually off the eternal carrot
>>23895245I think in this way expanding our borders is no problem.
I will update shortly.>>23895245Not typically. Expanding borders/establishing settlements are two separate actions
>>23895245The town will be a farming community. It will help secure food, and deal with too many kobalds, too little room.
>>23895247Well, I'm not too fond of disease and kobald waste crowding our capital, and I certainly don't like the idea of the hungry starting a riot, or even rebellion.
>>23895421well, then you just dont understand the way of the Kobold>>23895398anybody got a name for our planed town?
>>23895430How about Farthest Reach?Or should we wait to use this name until we actually leave the mainland? (sometime in the far off future, if we are going to survive that long)
Summer has arrived.The religious reforms are well written and thought out, your advisor having enlisted an egghead from Kobolbridge. Clear and precise, they teach obedience and contentness above all other characteristics. This rigorous overhaul of our rhetoric goes down appallingly with the religious scholars settled by Temples End, and given their influence with the peasantry, it washes over poorly with them too. Not only has this made no difference to our people, it has also eroded our power over the Church of the Holy Carrot.Thankfully, our border expansion goes swimmingly, and we now span across to the other side of the great lake.We establish a fine settlement there (as yet unnamed), which takes many Kobolds out of the capital. The Dwarven labour utilised cares little for the religious turmoil of late so long as they are paid, and feel no great need to rest during the Summer. A road is also completed to the dwelling.There are enemy movements in the East - the Elves seem victorious at sea, with no navies lost, but as expected, the Gnolls easily dispatched the Elven archers.
>>23895465its really close, Elder. Really. Close.
>>23895480Just fucking... I need to take a break
>>23895480I think we already agreed on Increasing our resources.Now we can fortify our Realm!
>>23895523I had a feeling we should not fuck with religion...
>>23895480Surround the new town with farmland.Why have we not any iron with two mines open? i'd love to know where are these supplies are going.. dispatch troops to cutless cove to protect our southern border from the foul elven navy.Upgrade winterbury
>>23895586I think they are heading for Grainport
>>23895523You had better come back, or I'll be most displeased and probably cut myself.
>>23895635hm. the southern seas need protection.perhaps a wall?also we need to be making use of our forests.
>>23895480begin fortifying the human-gnoll border, war is coming.Improve culass cove's docks, we need atleast some seafaring.Build a navy for ourselves.
>>23895694Don't forget the food supplies... I think we are rushing in another war... we should never have gone exploring so far in the first placeAlso can we consider that rabbit-listening system?
>>23895745Oh yes. Scratch out the building of a new navy, replace it with build farms around the new settlement.
>>23895480Maybe a entirely different strategy should be our next move: Lets expand very aggressively and create a lot of wheat fields and hunting grounds (and probably some roads alongside) if we get attacked there, we sacrifice the area, build more soldiers and strike back
>>23895791condemn a part of our lands? i think not.
>>23895811If it is necessary, a smaller land will be much easier to defend.Let us create new Food supplies to have the military strength to strike back if it is necessary, but we should not strike first again.(Except if the dwarves attack our temples)
>>23895811potentially, yes. Aggressively expanding is the perfect strategy to accumulate food that we desperately need, and to accomodate with the bigger area that can be attacked, we have to sacrafice something. Namely the attacked areas.
>>23895845I think the key point is that we need more troops, we cannot withdraw the troops in the North
>>23895586With troops out there utilising iron, some of it goes towards upkeep.
>>23895899You are really busting my balls, dude
>>23895899you've got to be kidding me, how can we ever build up the amount of supplies we really need?
>>23895956Ill go cut myself now
>>23895967imagine that in spoilers
>>23895942You still receive it, just not every turn. i think it'll work out that won't receive any every 6 turns or so? I'm not quite happy with the automation of resources yet either, would you prefer I do it manually?
This is not the world i envisioned for my children.this country is suffering. our people are suffering. Food is short, living standards are low, and we are besieged from the north and east. Winter is coming, and what have we to show for it? our millitary strength is lent out to allies, and our supplies are used recklessly to expand our already delicate borders. Send me into the fray. hand me a sword and I will fight for our people, for this country. We must lead a charge, take claim that which is ours, make use of the land we already contain.I will lead them. give me your sword, give me your shield, let me lead a group of men, we will NOT be broken.
>>23895983Very well spoken
>>23895983its actually spring and there is no siege from the north.
>>23896023But there is a threat from the North.And our food IS short.And our military strength IS NOT used for us
>>23896023You are mistaken brother, summer's heat is upon us. we have already missed the time of planting, and what do you propose, sow our seeds in autumn time? The gnolls reside northeast, still north of us. I would advise you pick your battles with the true enemy Councillor, we cannot waste our time fighting amongst ourselves.
>>23896056I will not suffer this anti-kobold propaganda!Everything is FINE!FINE!Oh god I think Im having a fit
>>23896064Well we have ranged weaponry.I say we build some siege weapons and wipe out the gnolls.
>>23896099No. Expend nothing more. Arm any willing, i will travel from winterbery to the academy and train them myself. Our efforts must be to strengthen our people, increase the supply of food, clean up our towns and cities, give our forgotten poor something to fight for again. the moral of this land is low, we must stir in them once again the fire that allowed us to burn the foul elves of the south from the face of this earth.
>>23896168Are you suggesting militia forces? Formed from the poor?
>>23896200that sounds like a good idea. Good Idea, Kobaldron. A true hero you are.
>>23896220So what do you suggest should be our actions?
>>23895983>>23896168this kobold speaks the truth we must begin a crusade against those filthy gnolls the Great Fluffy One may guide us.all the proud kobolds who can use a bow or a spear should gather under the banner of the Fluffy Crussade
>>23896220our cities are crowded, our people perish. Let us put them to work, give them hope. I will push at the front of the charge, i will die for this land.Till the fields, let us create both swords and plowshares.
>>23896248my first action is keeping out of active council voting for a while. I think my guidance weakened our great religion and I need to make atonement. Maybe a pilgrimage to Temples end will help.
>>23896289I have also been involved in that decision, I will accompany you on your journey.see you guys tomorrow... have to get up early in the morning... don't fuck things up
Raise millita, let me captain them.redistribute our poor to positions where they can prosper, working in the fields.Plant, plant, plant. and hunt, hunt, hunt.
>kobold dictatorI like where this is going
>>23896384I propose to proclaim the great Kobaldraon a saint of He Who Dwells Beneath!
Update coming shortly.
>>23896384>>23896509since we also have got religion issues we should call that a crussade that will raise our morale and if we are victorious other countries will join the cause of the fluffy one and kobaldraon should lead the crussadeas for the action: recruit troops for the crussade, farm,and hunt(we need food)
Lord Kobaldraon, master of the hunt and hero of the Kobold kind, takes many poor and downtrodden from our cities and raises them to fight for our nation. He stands in the bastion of the Academy surrounded by numerous well drilled, if a little underequipped, of his students of war.In the Northeast, our forces hold fast in the face of Gnollish advances. They fear, however, they shall be assaulted shortly. The humans have raised all the levies they can, how make their way towards the border. On a related note, they have hurriedly assembled a navy to delay the lost Elves.We easily convince workers to till the soil in our newly founded lakeside settlement. Despite the summer heat, we are able to completely saturate the lands around the village. There is no wheat here yet, but it is still enough to push our food production into surplus.Our research is complete, and we can now smelt Bronze. A curious metal, almost as durable as iron - only it is less sensitive to water.We have amassed 3 wealth.
>>23896563leave one unit at grainport and pull everything else to the eastern front. Retreat a bit with what we have there so we can meet up more quickly.
>>23896563fall back to the oustkirts of yormire, dig in and wait for back up. on the home front, Se if we can't increase rabbit population, and improve cutlass cove.
>>23896563we must prepare the defense of yormire, send the crossbowkobolds and the spearkobolds there, meanwhile our rabbiteers should attack gnoll territory from the south while all the gnoll forces are in yormire. we should also build a fleet in cutlass cove and gather more food
>>23896563can we research unifide religious scripture?
>>23896563Fashion armaments for my men, use iron as it is all we have.Use unspoiled forests to hunt for gameSearch for tin in the mountains, we will need it.If possible, raise more men to fight. and send word to our soldiers in the east to ready themselve, our human allies send aid.
>>23896558Wonderful! A crusade!This should solve all our problems.Gnolls will die, we gain spoils of war, and our troops can't start if they're dying in droves!
>>23896719Doing so does seem prudent; we don't want a second front against the dwarves or an internal rebellion at this point. Also name Kobaldraon a Living Saint!
>>23896781I do like the reasoning of this one.
>>23896738I revoke my search for tin in the mountains. The religious issue at home is more pressing.
>>23896719>>23896738>>23896781>>23896860So, hunting, incensing a crusade & unifying our temples, and fashioning Iron for our brave militia.if the council sees this fit, it shall be enacted.
>>23896929I am but a humble, repenting priest, but I would assume so.
>>23896860and finally name the unamed city... WestHaven or, woodshadow, because it lay in the shadow of a great forest.
>>23896929I'm not full member of the council, but I vote for this. >>23896980How about Lakeside?
>>23897012snap a nametag on that fucker and you are a member of the council
>>23897012got my email and name mixed up. Lakeside town*
>>23896997This is my vote. well spoken sir.
>>23897052A living saint addressed me! What does the weirdly shaped carrot say about such an occasion? I think I should sacrifice a rabbit.
>>23896929This is good. Also After a long time of suggestions, I believe I will fully join this council, if I may.
Shall update shortly.
>>23897085sa-sacrifice a rabbit?! what kind of mad priest are you, how do you dare kill a precious rabbit ofered to us by the great fluffy one!
>>23897163you mean the ones we farm and eat? The ones whose death crys appease He Who Dwells Beneath? Yeah, we kill a lot of them daily for religious reasons.
>>23897204>>23897163Don't forget making them kill one another for funsies
>>23897085steady yourself brother, fanaticism has never worked well for our people. I am a simple brother from below, i only wish to fight for our people, for my children and my wife.
>>23897217thats also very important>>23897232He is so humble! WE NEED TO ERECT MONUMENTS TO HIS HONOR!
>>23897217Counciler, do the humans have sufficient numbers of these new mounts for military purposes?
>>23897125Can we also order the university to start making a basic simple schooling system? I want our people to be educated.
>>23897258He doesn't get anything until the gnoll menace is exterminated.
>>23894273>>23894273Is this a game?spoiler is the bb code right?
>>23897322>>23897342Wise choices, i second.
>>23897322>>23897378you people wont even give the peseantry their hero
While the master of the hunt, the revered Koboldraon, is away, his disciples of the bow work ferverently in the forests of our nation. Much prey has been slayed for the glory of Kobold kind, and feasts take place all over our grand nation.Taking a less direct tact with the church this time, we petition the religious fellows to declare a crusade, attempting to mend our relations with the clergy and as such, every follower 'neath them. While they seem pleased with the less commanding nature of our requests, they may need some time before they are more helpful to us.Our militia have iron weaponry forged en masse. This enormous scale of production is unlike anything our nation has seen before, with human industrial techniques being utilised to great effect.Our armies are moving to a unified position in order to best defend Yormire.On the Southern coasts, the human navy clashes with the Elven vessels. Unable to produce a second fleet in time for the conflict, the human ships are vastly outmatched. They avoid direct conflict for as long as possible, but are forced to assault the Elves when they make for Grainport. The vessels are being downed very efficiently, and the battle will not last much longer.
>>23897437didnt we order to leave a unit at grainport?
>>23897374Game in the traditional sense, for the timebeing. Perhaps a 4x some day>>23897449So you did will fix next round without problem.
I still want to get my hands on whatever OP is using.
>>23897480Did you make this your self OP?
>>23897490you mean if the magnus cartography engine is coded by OP? maybe its hidden somewhere on the picture!anyway, we should make a unit of archers at cutlass to defend grainport.
I am here, though a little lost as to what is happened, what with the religious reforms and all.
Send our elite rabiteers to the northern front, I will lead my men and the spearbolds to Grainport. Christen the new town Shadewood. Ranged soldiers or rabiteers should be trained, a unit's worth.either reinforce the cove, or, build docks for a navy.
>>23897526>>23897490>>23897449>>23897437I don't have a larger spritefont
>>23897592Yes it's still Summer. It resets when I recode stuff.
>>23897585we should build a navy once the war is won, not in the middle of it. reinforce the cove. Let our sacred hero of no faults defend grainport, but not with he shouldnt take a whole army with him, when there already will be one waiting for him. Those guys should reinforce the Gnoll war
>>23897592I've changed my mind on the battle commands, we need to overpower the gnolls decisively. with the remaining spearbolds i will lead my men north, send our swift elite rabiteers south to defend the port.instead of ships, train archers at the cove.
>>23897592Our strength is in the buildings. Build fortifications outside yorkmire and grainport.At home, we should use the stone surplus to improve cutlass cove with stone fortifications to ward off elven raiders.
>>23897630agreed sir. I was hasty, i only wish to defend our allies, can the north be held in my absence?
>>23897641i am really afraid of losing the brave rabeteer that showed themselves so useful when they fought beside me... I mean beside the Kobolds who fought the first war against the Gnolls. We shouldnt send them on such a dangerous mission. Take them with you, instead let the spearmen go south
>>23897669we do not know of the strength of the Gnolls blood magic, but we will have superior numbers and possibly those guys that met in a bar, if the time allows it.
>>23897706AND the fortifications of Yormire, now that I think of it
>>23897686agreed, veterans stick together.
>>23897727So. You will lead our elite to the frontlines, while spearmen reinforce grainport, as we fortify yorkmire?
>>23897806sounds good sir, training archers in the cover would be our third action of the day
>>23897806the last time the elves flanked us, the heavy support of their boats made bloody goo out of two of our armies while we were at an advantage numberswise. we definitivly need everything we can get out of cutlass cove.
is it just me or are >>23897806 and >>23897727 getting a little too into it?
>>23897836I've suggested this multiple times. But I believe the three things I mentioned would take all our actions.
>>23897866Of course, I believe any additional turns could be used for turning cutlass cove into a stone bastion
>>23897865If you didnt get that impression with meatonstick already then i didnt do my job at all
Okay, let's get things rolling. Respond to this post with the things you plan to do with our actions. Because fuck I'm not searching thru these posts.
What's our tech level at? Can we move ballistas to deal with the ships?
>>23897865No such thing
>>23897914get the spearmen back, make a unit of archers and get those guys down south were the fighting happens. Meet the Gnolls behind the walls of Yormire
>>23897932every archer unit and every boat has ballistas
>>23897959Then send those ranged units your king was talking about to deal with them
>>23897914build ships with ballistas and the new bronce, send all our troops but the one in grainsport against the gnoll recruit crossbowkobolds
>>23897983we need to recruit them first. arent you paying any attention at all?
>>23897983"your" king? I do say, this seems rather suspicious...
>>23898002Either this or let them take grainsport and slaughter them on even ground when they advance inland without support from their ships
>>23898002Seeing as we'll use up our already low tin stockpile, I don't think this'll go over well.My vote goes for:>>23897949so far, more plans, brobolds!
>>23898017we dont even HAVE a king! Our realm is ruled by a council composed of representatives of whoever shows up that day!
>>23897914I believe we are sending speremen to the elves, and everyone else to gather at, and fortify, yorkmire. If there's another action available, I'd recommend using stone to turn cutlass cove into a stone bastion with heavy naval defences.
Move myself and the elite rabiteers to meet the gnolls, move the other spearmen to granport.Reinforce yorkmireCreate some archers at cutlass.label the unamed city as Shadewood
>>23898031instead of bronce cooper.also the spearbolds can do nothing against a bunch of elves firing against tjem in their shipsand the more troops in the north the less kobolds we will lose
>>23898091I also considered this, but I think the lifes of the spearmen are worth the time they can buy us in the south, and with the help of our new archers, maybe we can even save some of them.
>>23898091Dig both groups of spearmen (asuming the other spearmen go to grainport) behind the town, wait for the elves to land then strike, fortify in the town for martial combat.
>>23898125I think we have decided our cours of action with this last clearification.
>>23898125and wath if the elves burn the town? they are sadistics bastards. those spears are more useful in the north against the gnolls rather than in the south beign shooted by archers in boats
Oh god I don't know if I can stand all of these typos, Advisor-kun.
>>23898195if the elves burn the town they are just igivng us time to meet up with the archers that we will form at cutlass
>>23898215shut up, you dont even contribute
>>23898215Eh, I'm guessing he's on a mobile or something. It's comprehensible so it's all cool. Next update will be the last one for tonight, brobolds, fyi.>>23898235Chill out bro, no need for that.
>>23898222I second this. buy time and regroup at cutless
>>23898235 I've been with this game since the beginning, yo. I've decided to back off and try to help with coordination, and, you know, try to be of service. Learn your shit before you post.
>>23898268Yes, consult the human king first though. He's already upset with us and I doubt losing more ships will make him happy
>>23898299It's only the northern king that's unhappy, and he's already out of the war.
>>23898299The King from the North was the one that loaned us his ships, if only for a small period of time. The Easterners are ruled by wealthy landowners, and this is their first navy we know of.
>>23898282here since thread 2 and last time you offered your services close to nothing on the efficiency side changed. All you do is breaking up the roleplay the whole time.
>>23898222the point is that we need the spears to stop the advance of the gnolls but if everybody votes against that i will accept the council decicion
>>23898328>>23898331 Sorry I'm just getting into this and trying to participate, I'ma goof.
>>23898345Cut this meta finger pointing and arguing shit out now, please. Doesn't help anything.
>>23898356No issue sir, just forfeit 5 sixths o your land, and sell your family into mining slavery
>>23898383Ignore that >>, wasn't meant to be a reply
>>23898383yeah, i started that, sorry, Ill stop. Sorry, wacky, gone a bit overboard with that.
>>23898386Are slaves family?
>>23898336Actually, iirc, it helped the OP, because everyone's plans were all in disarray. A 'speaker of the house' is plenty roleplay-y. I just don't ham it up.
>>23898391Aye aye. My apologies for >>23898404, saw it after your post.We seriously need a plan that we can all agree on. Do we agree to send those guy south to help with the invasion?
I was once a Young Kobald. I remember when we first encountered these men of the east, what we learned from them, how to farm and cut stone. We owe them much, this day we repay them.This day we fight.
>>23898450Even if we only are able to save two of three settlements, we will avenge the third!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6EviiD3--iU
>>23898450Aye!So, we will send those guys south to help with the invasion.2nd and 3rd actions:Given the fact that we are terrible in water (don't start that water rabbit madness plox), I say we fortify cutlass cove.Fight!
>>23898399On a serious note, we could do with somewhere to collate all the information we have. A pastebin, perhaps? I recently converted the map to a much larger one, could be useful to have it all in one place once it really builds up.
>>23898513 The new map looks nice, btw.
>>23898513ever thought about a blog?
>>23898510I spoke with a lower ranked Professor-General at the Academy the other day, they report that due to some new 'graphics that the ohpee did' whatever that science mumbo-jumbo means, our Academy is now prepped to train sole siege squads of Ko-Boltthrowers.
Okay to clarify, my suggestion is to evacuate Grainport to Felplain, build our forces at Cove and Academy while the rest of our troops fight off the gnolls and hold Felplain, then strike the elves with our new troops when they make their advance inland.
>>238985793rd action is this! We must see the new 'graphics that the ohphee did'!
>>23898585We must focus on where we are strong and where our allies need us most, which is the gnollish front.
>>23898513 On it friend
So we shall bring Those Guys in from the North to assist in the battle with their Rabbitear retinue, fortify Cutlass Cove, and raise siege engines at the Academy.Will update shortly.
>>23898661 Made the pastebin, now feasting on chicken. I also have no fucking clue what I'm doing
>>23898878 Speaking of having no cluehttp://pastebin.com/u/Kobold123
A brigade of Koboltthrowers, and their skilled operators, is currently posted at the Academy, fresh from training. They await your command. Given our meagre Iron supply, copper has been used for the bolt heads.On the South Seas, the human navy is done, but they managed in their desperation to take down an Elf fleet during their final hours. They now sit by the shores, slinging a few arrows towards our garrison in Grainport from time to time, and preventing trade ships from entering and leaving the harbour.Northward, Those Guys moved South, and were met with a vast raging battle. the Gnollish Chief led the charge against the allied forces, and caused such terror in the human spearmen that they nearly routed. A quick counter charge by our veteran Rabbitears prevented this, however. Gnoll slings launch volleys of stone into the ranks of our archers, who are taking heavy casualties while they chip away at the feral warriors that make up the majority of the Gnoll forces. Although there are no rallied Wolves amongst the Gnolls this time, the foul Druids work their black arts still, imbuing the Gnoll flailwielders with unnatural fearlessness and rage. This, in fact, occasionally works to our advantage: our archers, keen hunters at home, set many traps for the evil beasts, whose almost catatonic state causes them to take no evasive action, and instead plough straight into the snares. 1 unit of Gnoll warriors has succumbed to the charms of death in the manner, assisted most ably by the sharp end of Kobold bolts.With the forces on both sides closing into close range, Koboldraon and his students move forward to prevent our archers being overrun. They hold fast by either bravery or stupidity as the combatants move in, and I am told that in the ongoing melee the sheer numbers on our side are allowing us to hold our own against the beasts. I await your commands to send to the front.I don't have a UI icon for siege units yet, I'll sort that at some point
>>23899035 can we have steampunk technology? or that is too much?
>>23899035Focus all forces on the Gnollish chief. Cut the head off this snake, and let's see what a pack of leaderless dogs can do then.
>>23899035hold the line, if we"re endanger of being overrun let the center collapse into yourmire, and the flanks encircle the gnolls. At hoem, begin turning cutlass cove into a stone naval fortress.
>>23899143Not right now. We're barely out of the iron age... That said, there's a big old world to explore, plenty of time, and loads of resource icons I've yet to use (can't wait to put down my first 'uranium'). I'm perfectly willing to run this to the bitter, sci-fi-post-nuclear end. That'll be more than a few threads away, though.
>>23899169>>23899201So, combining these two:Focus on chiefsUpgrade the Cove into a fortress???
>>23899215I still love you OP, you don't have to try any more. But it doesn't hurt to keep doing it :3
>>23899267>implying I need to try when I can just program something to put in the effort for mefoolish mortals!Anyway, I'm off to bed. See you onnnn Thursday evening, chaps. Also, someone feel free to archive.
>>23899240build some schools?
>>23899240Allow the new seiges to mow down the packs of gnolls
>>23899240This is good.
>>23899297Night, advisor-kun~ Know that a whole board of weird fucks love you~~~~~
>>23899297archive all your posts?roger.
Hey, saw this thread a couple week bad and thought the art was awesome. So of course I put it into a program. Currently it just generates an random world and gives you a few options (to explore unknown hexes, farm, and whatnot), but it can be expanded.However I don't have a ton of time to devote to it, so I put it up for public download on GitHub at https://github.com/fatguy/SimpleWorldsI'm fine with letting it die here, as it was really fun to make, but if anyone thinks it could make a decent game or framework, feel free to fuck around with it.Also, I have not yet added comments, meal with it.
>>23899502OP's thing *IS* a game.
>>23899502>https://github.com/fatguy/SimpleWorldsWhat kind of filehosting place is that? WHy not just zip the thing and put on mediafire?
>>23899510Link to download?
>>23899565Git is a repository system used for collaboration between multiple people on one project. No doubt he though that on the off chance more than one person might be interested in checking it out it would be handy to have everything in place. Also, it keeps plebs who aren't skilled with the compooterz and non-master-race Linux users from meddling with things beyond their comprehension.
>>23899502Seems like it'd be great.Do eet.
>>23899502so you basically just stole all the art the OP have done by hand?
