My people, to me! It is now the sacred time and again we relate the history of our people in accordance with tradition.In the last two years we've seen other tribes arise in Dragon Pass, in response to our tribe--Avaltvar, or Everspring--coming into being. The new tribes are Culbrea, Dundealos and Malani. We also drove off the Jenestni, completing our goal of claiming the entirety of northern Quiviniland for Fimbulvetr and our tribe. The Greydogs once again defaulted on their obligations as a tributary, leaving them open to future raids. Westarted feuding with the Tedanlings over the daughter of their chief, who came to us for sanctuary after being dishonored in her clan. Finally, we increased our store of treasures by a good number.
Omens and clan magic assignments for the year.Here's an updated asset list:Shrines:Barntar--VigorElmal--Sun, ShieldErnalda--Bless CropsHumakt--TrueswordIssaries--Market, SilvertongueLhankor Mhy--LiteracyMaran Gor--EarthbloodOrlanth--RainTarard Riel--WatchfulnessUrox--Smite ChaosUralda--Calf BlessingVinga--FyrdwomenWind Spirits--N/ATreasure: Parentheses indicate where the treasure came from.Bag of Winds (Heroquest, Orlanth and Aroka)Bullroarer (Exploration)Captured Spirit (Event, wild spirit)Eurmal's Shield (Trade with clan)Eye Mirror (Event, adventurers)Godbone (Event, adventurers)Grey Net (Exploration)Gustbran's Wheel (Heroquest, godsrealm)Humakt's Raven Banner (Exploration)Humakt's Shield (Heroquest, Humakt the Champion)Humakt's Sword (Heroquest, Humakt the Champion)Issaries Tongue (Trade with clan)Klanth of Orlanth (Heroquest, Orlanth and Aroka)Necklace of Axes (Event, trade with dwarves)Quivin's Torc (Trade with clan)Red Leather Mask (Event, adventurers)Sacred Clod (Event, Maran Gor)Scarf of Seven Runes (Trade with a clan)Shimmering Cloak (Event, adventurers)Silver Dragon (Exploration, dragonnewts)Splendorbread (Heroquest, Orlanth and Aroka)Vargast's Ring (Trade with clan)Veil of Chalana Arroy (Exploration, Tarsh)Whirlwind Jar (Event, Goodseller)I think that's all of them, will do a thorough check later.
Illator is back with cows. He's not happy that we made him walk back and forth but his honor demanded it.What do we do with the sick herd of cows?Hello Orstalor, you're looking dapper there.
>>28699979#3. It could help repair the reputation we have with Tarsh, and it's not like we're lacking for food.
Being feted warmed his mood. Lost some cows, but we'll be swimming in them before the end of the year.
Sea season, so pick two actions. If no one has any suggestions, we'll go trading.>>28699929I knew I forgot something; our Fortifications:DitchRampartsStake PerimeterWooden StockadeStone WallWatch Tower
>>28700223Trading sounds good. We can go raiding later during Dark or Fire.How many Heroquests are left for us to do for the King requirement?
>>28700223Explore Prax. Let's see if we can catch that fucking horse this time.
Sending trade mission.>>28700405Six, and one of them has to be Elmal Guards the Stead.>>28700417That's West actually. Prax is different, but still interesting.
Horse-fuckers! Going to use the Bullroarer to improve our odds of driving them off.
What are Horse-Spawn without their horses? Blood for the blood goddess.
>>28700517Wonderful slaughter.Shame we didn't capture any of their horses.
Do we want to explore Prax or the place where the Horse-Spawn come from? There are events in both.If we want to have the whole map explored before the end of the game, we should consider increasing how often we send out parties.
>>28700547I say lets see what horseys have for us.
As we send a party to investigate where we think the Horse-Spawn come from, I have to say that Baranthos does NOT look good without hair.
We find the Hate Torch held by the Lonisi. I pay 30 cows and 35 goods for it.I'm not sure, but I think that it empowers Uroxi.  of course.
This event is interesting. We've found the body of a dead dragonnewt. What are we going to do with it?
>>28700876MAGIC ARMOUR MAGIC ARMOUR MAGIC ARMOUR
>>28700876Let's attempt to make magical armor from it. And holy crap, Orlastor just got old all of a sudden.
Chance of failure: High. Oh well, I wasn't looking forward to losing two to three thanes a year.
>>28700876Oh man, this is the one event I actually remember from playing. I got it right near the start, so it scared the shit out of me.This is going to be interesting.
Fire season. Two actions. Unfortunately, we can only hire two thanes now. We could keep exploring.
>>28700981Explore away, son.
>>28700981Hail, Heort-sonIf you want more thanes, send away all buit one on a trade mission escort, then hire up to ten thanes.And you'll probably get the "Not enough weaponthanes! event, too, which means you can get anywhere from 10 to 15 weaponthanes in one go (though they tend to bleed off over the following year a bit.)
Harvar's going to check out Prax for us.>>28701015We'll do that in Earth season.
Baranthos returns from the Grazelands like a boss, riding Horse-Spawn horses and carrying one of their sacrificial vessels.
The Jenestni decide to carry on their feud despite being on the other side of the pass. We prepare to drive them off.
I really don't like that we lost people.
>>28701093VERY nice, Baranthos deserves a prize.>>28701125CRUSH THEM.
For the second half of Fire season, we turn around and send Baranthos right back out. We'll be heroquesting in Dark season, I think.
The Vostangi launch a cattle raid on us. We prepare to drive them off.
At the cost of one farmer's life, we kick them out and claim six horses.
It's now Earth season, and we're going to do something clever.
We've met our first Praxians. They're pretty cool, riding ostriches as they do. Since it's now Earth season, we shouldn't go raiding, but that doesn't mean we can't take advantage of their offer.
>>28701408Sacrifice for an earth curse upon our enemies, as we planned?
>>28701453Yeah, a delayed raid would be good.
>>28701453Delay the raid for now. No need to disgruntle the carls any more than necessary.
I'm getting some real Lawrence of Arabia vibes from this image.
The return of the exploration party prevented us from carrying out our plan. Oh well, there's always next year.
WHY. Why in Orlanth's name has this event come back to haunt us?!At least we're already feuding with the Jenestni!Fun fact: Orstalor advocates for peace. What a sagelike Trickster. It's going to make readjusting to #YOLO Chaotic Stupid Eurmalites that much harder when he dies.>>28701575Whoops, forgot to say that despite that, we still got four thanes.
>>28701551Except their heavy cavalry rides ostriches, not horses, yeah.(Also, I think one of the advantages of being the Elmali clan is that you don't get the elmali clan demanding the golden horse treasure you can get from the grazelands.)
>>28701666An interesting problem. On the one hand, advocating peace is pretty spiffy for things such as this.But on the other hand, the Jenestni are assholes and we're already either exacting tribute or raiding them actively.Let's try #4. We're gonna have to make peace with the other tribes sometime, might as well start now.
It's worth recognizing that the Jenestni are about as spiteful as we are.>>28701668>Except their heavy cavalry rides ostriches, not horses, yeah.I actually pointed that out.As it happens, the Jenestni are the Elmali clan. We wouldn't give up a treasure of ours to them for just about anything.
>>28701763It's a good idea to be at war with someone. If you don't raid reasonably frequently, your thanes get pissed, your battle magic stops working, etc.Plus, think of the profits.The main risk is being at war with too many clans, or too powerful a clan.
Speaking of Golden Horses, here's this event again. And our Odaylans are literally built for this. Guess I'm glad I didn't succeed in sacrificing them to Cragspider.>>28701890We're far and away the most powerful clan in the Pass by any metric you care to choose.
>>28701923Yeah, I know that. I don't think we're at any risk. I was talking in general terms.
>>28701923#4.They're going to need every bit of cunning and luck to succeed. Some divine help wouldn't hurt either.
I was scrolling down the list of deities to check their portfolios and accidentally double-clicked Vinga. So Vinga now favors our attempt to steal a magic horse from the Horse-Spawn.Not sure if this is good...>>28701938My mistake.
>>28702024W-well, thanks Vinga.
With Renowned Animals and Excellent Combat, Karendra is our best bet at nabbing that horse. Vinga is in some interpretations Orlanth's female aspect, so maybe that'll add to Combat. Plus the warrior name dropped in the event is Vingan.We send six thanes along.
Hate. That is all I feel. Both at this event and at the connection problems that I'm currently experiencing.
Oh, I'm back.Buying the Flesh Man makes the sting of losing the horse go away a little. If nothing else, it's one less treasure in the rotation, and this one definitely has more uses than some of the others.
Dark season. We'll do a heroquest and undertake a raid. Any preferences as to which heroquest, and who we target?
>>28702446Which heroquests haven't we done so far?Also, let's raid the Jenensti.
>>28702446The Jenestni are begging for it.
>>28702491We've only done Humakt since forming a tribe. All the ones we did before no longer count towards victory.Let's do Ernalda, there's things to be had from it. We'll do Elmal next year.We'll try to hit the Jenestni.
Ernalda's quest yields one treasure and it's awful.Choose between increasing yields, strengthening Eonislara or improving the carls' mood. Note that just completing the quest has a passive fields benefit.
>>28702679Improve Carls' moods.
>>28702702I'll second that. We're not hurting in the other areas, and keeping them happy gives us more leeway to do other stuff.
>>28701923>We're far and away the most powerful clan in the Pass by any metric you care to choose.But are you stronger than the Runic Men?
>>28702810The Runic Men are just a legend meant to inspire other clans to their extremely hypothetical heights. And even then, they weren't able to keep the Carls happy all the time! Although I did hear that they had a trickster who was practically a Humakti.
STOP RAIDINGGIVE ME FOODGIVE ME LOOTPAY ATTENTION TO MEEEEEEEEEE
>>28702873SHUT UP CARL, GO GET DRUNK.>ahemTechnical difficulties on my end, resuming in a few minutes.And before anyone asks, technical difficulties absolutely do not involve our quester getting killed by Daga.
>>28703211Oh. That's nice. Kind of odd to mention that specifically.
I think it's cool how all Orlanthi shed tears about things like this.>>28703325Absolutely have nothing to do with getting killed by Daga. Getting refused by the elves...Jokes aside, I'll be taking a short break to deal with this unwanted real world intrusion.
AFTER we deal with this event.Orstalor you magnificent bastard.
>>28703549On the one hand, it's beneath us to rub salt in their wounds. On the other hand it's the Jenestni, and fuck those guys.I say 3. We can be good winners, but we don't owe them a reciprocal gift unless we want to put the feud behind us. Unless you think we have bigger fish to fry and should be cooling those waters.
>>28703549Give them hospitality. We'll need to start setting up the path of friendship to help establish our right to Kingdom.It is easy to go down the path of vengeance, but it is the stuff of legends to forgive.Now kill them in their sleep and hide the bodies and dagger.
Orstalor you cad.We might have killed their entire working population two or three times, burnt half their tula to the ground, stolen half of their land, demanded draining tribute from them for years, formed a superpower around them and then attacked them so aggressively that leaving their home of nearly thirty years was preferable to staying a moment longer, but damn if they don't think we're excellent hosts.I'll be gone anywhere from forty minutes to an hour. When I come back, we'll raid the Greydogs or something
>>28702446Doesn't doing a heroquest take the entire season?
>>28704015I think that only happens if you do the quest at the beginning of the season.
>>28704015>>28704327You're correct, I forgot that little detail. Completely. Guess we're raiding next year.Since I'm a moron, two actions for Storm season. More exploration and trading?
>>28704411Let's see of the Jesenti would agree to a peace to the feud. Let us also see who else we can make peace with. Only being raided by non-orlanthi could be nice.
>>28704411We can still raid in storm, can't we? It's not as comfy as fire, but there's no harvest work to be done.
>>28704460We prefer to raid during Dark season, because we get clan magic for it.Not that we need magic since we've got it coming out of our ears. Speaking of gross surpluses, 2k+ cattle, damn.So, peace with the Jenestni? Not a terrible idea; now that they're on the other side of the Quivinilands it'll be hard to keep raiding them.
>>28704526Can we send Orstalor as emissary?Also, your trip mutated.
>>28704555That has the possibility to backfire spectacularly. Still want to do it?
>>28704602Different anon, but since we seem to be trying to win and not just get lulz, I'd rather send whoever's best for the job. We've got other targets if we want to spend an action trolling another tribe.
>>28704602Depends how much we actually want the feud to end.
Playing it safe.>>28704754Ironically, Orstalor is our best bargainer. The only downside to sending him is a non-zero chance of him dicking off instead.
I'm just a little mad about this. I'll use 1 point of magic to tilt the odds even more in our direction.
Driving them off won us more horses than we sent to make peace with. And look at that casualty list.
For our next action, I'd advise exploring. Kero Fin is nearby and has some events left.
>>28704857Obviously they want to support our peace making efforts by donating horses.
>>28704857I've only ever seen you charge. Is that the single best tactic to use? Or does it have to do with our superior numbers?
>>28705008Maneuver is better on defense, skirmish is only good if you have a lot of hunters, evade is only if you think you're going to lose no matter what and want to minimize casualities, though I have managed to win a battle once while evading so I'm not sure how it works. In any case, charging is the best overall when on the offense.
Since no one opined either way, I went and sent them off.Why is the Elmal worshipping clan so based? It's a pity the label was attached to the Jenestni, their clan's background is cool.>>28705008Single best. Interrupts sacrifice (empowers an army during either the start or resolution of combat), effective against larger forces and prevents smaller forces from getting an advantage on you. You might want to use Evade if you're hilariously outnumbered though.>>28705039I think Charging disrupts Skirmish as well. There's some relationship between the three that's almost but not quite like RPS.
>>28705119Help their ritual. It's practically free considering how much magic we're packing.
>>28705177They take a percentage of your stocked magic actually.
>>28705193Shit. Just give them baskets and tapestries (2) then, everything else seems to valuable to give up, and they probably won't go for the marriage.
Well okay, if you want us to keep raiding you...
We might not be the most popular clan around, but everyone knows we're the most awesome.
>>28705367See you next cattle season, Jenestni.
Called it. Starving cattle. We'll start selling some off for treasures and to make ourselves popular.
A good harvest but a difficult Dark season. This year should be interesting.Go ahead and give me an action for Fire season. I'll lead off by sending our thanes on a trade mission and then hiring more in their absence.
This is a morale boosting event, I think.
>>28705511To be honest, I kinda want to raid the Jenestni just to spite them. Although that can't be good for future possibilities of alliances with them. Or if we really want to rub it in their faces, we can try to schmooze up to Jenestni allies by giving gifts.
Our second Heroic Magic Elmali. He's probably going to die in the next three years, he's pretty old.
Pray to your gods we don't get a combat event.>>28705551>get on good terms with the Jenestni's tribe matesI like it.
It's not a combat event! The Mule Deers want us to give them food. We're due an amazing harvest that reminds me, I'm going to switch grain production around. How do you say?
>>28705631Give him more than he asks for, they're our bros. This is the second or third time the Mule Deers have asked us for food, isn't it? Something must be up with their fields.
>>28705631I think they actually want us to give them cows.Give him more than he asks for.
>>28705631Give him the C.Only 20 of them, though.
We gave thirty cows, because we have to cut down on population pressure somehow.Best of all? It pleased the carls.>>28705677Urk. Misread that.
>>28705631Someone asks us for cows when we have an excess of cows we were planning on giving away. GEE I DUNNO.
>>28705735>carls pleasedShit, we must have screwed up somehow.
From one weaponthane to ten. Orstalor seems to have new material, too.
Rangor's back and wanting to be married again. Elusu thinks we can set him up with someone from the Lonisi clan. Should we try?>>28705782First time I've ever seen carls pleased at giving cows away.
>>28705834Sure. He seems to be a pretty plucky guy. Don't offer gifts, though. He has to stand on his own virtues.
>>28705834Tell him he doesn't have long to become a wizard, and then you won't even need pussy.
I'll be damned, I thought you had to pay gifts to get him married.>>28705915He's been married before. You're correct in that the only way his story ends is forever alone.
The Blue Spruces new chief is a philosophical atheist. I expect many lightning strikes around their tula in the future.
Missed the first picture in the chain. The Lonisi are selling a morale boosting Shifting Statue. I'll pay this much for it.They refuse. We need better bargainers.
They were kind enough to inform us that the Horse-Spawn were approaching though. Drive off+1 magic+Bullroarer.
>>28705834Let's try. It keeps the tribe happy, and even if another girl dumps him we can afford the lost gifts.
It works fine.Fire season next. Explore/trade sound good?
In case you're wondering, there's an event at Kero Fin that I'd like to trigger.
>>28705982>died in a fireMy sides have been sacrificed to Humakt.
A legal dispute comes before us. We can choose to side with one clan over the other to make them like us more, hit both clans to enrich ourselves, or find out what actually happened and rule accordingly.>>28706296I didn't see that. Hand me the knife, brother, Humakt has two orders of sides today.
>>28706362Find out what actually happened. Can we question both of them and still do a divination?
>>28706362Play detective. The path of honor is the path of glory, and we're already rolling in material wealth.
>>28706362Question and divination to find out if the thanes defected of their own volition, if so, rule in favour of the Old Owls, or if in fact their were indeed "lured" by the Old Owls, rule in favour of the Lonisi.
We could. But as you see here, Elusu thinks that Engarna is in the wrong. Asking the ancestors is likely to get us the same result, since Elusu's stats are so good. Not to mention, the ancestors ARE fallible.
>>28706465Do not question Elusu. Elusu's wisdom is infinite.
>>28706509>taking half of a settlementI'm pretty sure this would get a modern judge disbarred, but fuck it, we follow Heort's laws, and they say bribes for everyone!
Been a while since we chatted with the hunter bros. Wonder what treasure they'll have to sell us?It's almost Earth season. Want to hit someone with Blast Earth?
Finally. We've got the shrine to Kero Fin now. Yes this means that there are two shrines to be acquired on Kero Fin.
The Jenestni attack just as Baranthos and his people get home. The survivors will regret this.
As I predicted, Baranthos has an event. Heroic Combat, Excellent Leadership and Good Magic.
>>287066982, fight bravely
Baranthos makes like a god of war.
We had three magic in that and theirs was still better than ours. Pretty impressive.
There it is.How about exploring and then sacrificing to Humakt?
>>28706881Doesn't seem like anyone has any pressing ideas otherwise.
>>28706881Which quest are we going on this year? Maybe we should learn the mysteries of it.And what happened to the blessing Issaries owes us for getting treasures?
We'll try exploring Prax again. Despite what the image shows, it was five thanes.>>28707068Passive trade boost I think.
We paid 60 cows for Ernalda's Boots.
Dirty trollkin sneak into our food storage and are captured. What do we do with them?Most gods think very little of trollkin sacrifices, but Eurmal minds them not at all.
>>28707105Is it possible to kill the crag spider or is it just a if you send them here they just die
>>287072421 unless our ancestors fucking hate trolls
>>28707242I wish there was an option to make them part of the fyrd instead of thralls. They're kind of adorable in their derpy hunger
>>28707307Tribes would be pissed as shit at us if that was an optionCant befriend the trolls i dont think
>>28707251Cragspider is up in the Northeast. Killing one of the trollmothers is about as easy as killing a god, so it's always suicide.>>28707277Interestingly, trollkin aren't human, so even no-thrall ancestors don't complain about taking them as thralls. That said they're terrible thralls, so driving them off or sacrificing them are our best options. Sacrificing them to Trickster makes them useful.>>28707307I wouldn't feel too bad for them, they're watered down abominations too stupid to know how worthless they are--in canon.
>>28707336nah they did akin to breaking into your house, spilling an entire jug of milk and being found stuffing his face in a box of coco puffsjust kick them out
>>28707242I say we go Aztec on their asses.
>>28707307>taking trolls in as familyI'd sooner call the ducks kin than accept trollkin.
>>28707375Yeah, I'm voting for just kicking them out too. I'm all for tricksters and everything but killing them feels unnecessary
>>28707375I think we should cut the coco puffs out of their stomachs. Which I believe is the ritual to a sacrifice. If not, sacrifice them to the Trickster anyway. Let him have the coco puffs.
One to one drive out or sacrifice: Flipped a coin and it came up tails. Blood for Loki!
>>28707400we can do that too
>>28707431Eurmal would probably appreciate your method of decision making as well.
Change of plans: We're doing Orlanth and Aroka before Dark season.
>>28707471>and then orstalor was the furry
>>28707471Any particular reason, or are we running out of time?
I'm thinking next year we do Elmal.>>28707492Do you remember what happened the last time we picked this option?>>28707414>>28707429Extra votes for sacrifice and let go. Good thing it all balanced out in the end.
Here we go.
>>28707509>Do you remember what happened the last time we picked this option?no
>>28707554I think he's referring to the past year, where we missed out on dark season by doing the quest too early, and we need to raid in dark season to show the ice demons we're strong, independent Orlanthi who don't need no sunlight.
Again Baranthos returns from an expedition to foreign lands having crushed the native people with his massive sword, taking a trophy from them in the process.
>>28707554Flash drive problem, I think
>>28707554Basically this happened. We used to be confined next to the Old Owls. After Baranthos hit Heroic Combat and we picked warrior strengthening, we stopped losing battles and stopped having casualties and started taking over the north. Started here http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive/28269461/#p28276799, continued for a long while.Anyway, who's up to raiding the Greydogs?
We count as being allied with the Praxians where raiding is concerned. I think we'll let that stay where it is for now.
>>28707701So basically we're upping our king's combat ability to Baranthos levels?
Oh gods, they're screwed.
>>28707758No, the firecrotch. I think Elusu's already Heroic at combat.
>>28707787I thought Elusu wasn't as good at combat as Baranthos for some reason?
Onelisin gets an event. She has Heroic Combat (YES) and Excellent Leadership and Magic.>>28707758Elusu's already there. Now we've made the thanes able to keep up.
>>28707817Let's have the Heroic combatant fight like a hero! (1)
Onelisin broke them.>>28707816There are numerical values behind the stat titles. Think of each title as a range. Both Baranthos and Elusu have Heroic Combat, but Elusu is 90 while Baranthos is 99.
Not perfect, but still good.
Facking trolls! Two magic for them.
>>28707899>4 woundedI SWEAR ON YOUR HOSPITAL BEDS, YOU SHALL BE AVENGED
Rostakos gets an event. Excellent Combat and Magic both.
>>28707949I guess 2, he doesn't seem all that outstanding.
>>28707921I should have know, those trollkin were spies! Sent here to learn our secrets before an invasion!To arms!
>>287079493guy is oldmight as well go out with a bang
>>28707949Kill 'em all with MAGIC!
Been a while since we tried it magic. Results? Better than expected.
>>287079494 When in doubt WIZARD!
Now that's what I call awesome.
>>28708052Silly trolls. Nocturnal beings should not piss off followers of the fucking SUN GOD.
Huh, haven't seen this before. Mordrim usually comes when you have Blacktail in your possession. As it happens, we errored him out of the game. What do we do when he asks for Voriof's Flute?
>>28708182We even using it?
>>28708182What does the flute do? You didn't mention it in the above list.
>>28708236You're right. Voriof's Flute: "The Shepherd God's toy gives certain clan members special daring and prowess". Exactly what the prowess is, or what clan members are effected, your guess is as good as mine.What happens in the Blacktail event is that the bull goes to Mordrim's clan (the Tree Brothers), from whom it can be bought from at a later time. Giving the bull as a gift sets off a very nice event later, so we might want to do that.
>>28708319Sounds like a fancy way of saying "does fuck all." Give it to him, or since there's no option for giving it away freely, sell it for his crappy price of goods we don't need.
>>28708319On the one hand, "giving our clan members daring and prowess" might be one of the reasons that we have been getting so much combat events, but you say we'll get to buy it back eventually and we'll get a nice event from it too.How long before we could buy it back?
>>28708368Option 4 actually does just that.>>28708369Immediately. We'll want to wait a few years to see if the gratitude event can result from this though.
>>28708369alright, give it to him. But be sure to buy it back later if we can.
>>28708434I don't know how I missed it. I guess my eyes were temporarily unable to read blue.
>>28708434agreed, wait a few years, get the event, and then buy it back after we've gotten every event from him we can.
We didn't have a second action for Dark, so why not try sacrificing to the Wind Spirits? I've never actually managed to get the shrine before, and I'm curious to see what Seeing Wind or Listening Wind can do.
>>28708514go for it.
>>28708514??? Wind Shrine???dont even know what that is
I think this might improve your chances of spotting an inbound raid. Not sure though.>>28708537Special shrine you can get during an exploration of Kero Fin. Has some unique abilities that I don't understand because I've never used them before.
Oh come on, we attacked you once. That's no reason to roll over. Twelve cows/year sound right?
>>28708607Go for it.
Reached for 13 because why not.
>>28708607Weren't our cattle running out of pasture and getting hungry? More cattle doesn't even seem worth it. Let's just do an annual tribute so they can default soon and we can get back to raiding.
>>28708660We can easily just clear some more pastures.
I don't see it, Harran. We have more cows than we did at the start of the year when they were starving. We'll probably want to send out many, many trading missions until we have 1900 or so.>>28708660That's pretty much what we did.
This is the start of an interesting event chain.
>>28708734KILL 'EM ALL!
>>28708734Boy, wouldn't it be awesome if Derik grew up to be an awesome warrior who kills Jaldon Goldentooth? Let's do a poem, because poems are always awesome.
Again, kingdom>tribe. Killing all of them just is not possible. That said, Elusu sees some reason to go after the Praxians.>>28708831Man, that sure would be cool.
I honestly find myself not caring. The Stag Hearths are on the opposite side of the Quivinilands now, too much effort to raid.
Clan mood is maxed out. I'm going to send off two treasure trades to trade cows for treasure.
>>28708886Is there a distance where raids take more than a month to reach the target? I know trade missions and emissaries can take that long, but I've never seen raids where you leave in fire season and can't make it back in time for the harvest.
First one.>>28708922No, raids resolve much quicker than trade or exploration. I think it's because when you raid you take your armor, a sword, food enough to get there and some running shoes, while exploration involves mapmaking and trading involves customs and baggage trains.
And two.No, Orstalor, you're not going.
Oh crap, I thought if you destroyed its body it stayed away. It knows we have it.
>>28709006So we destroyed the body? Or do we still have it? if we do, then just hand it over.
>>28709006ruh oh, we dont have it !(hides badly skinned dragonewt under rug)
If you made armor out of the body this scene plays out very differently since you'll want to keep it.
>>28709006Just give it up, we didn't manage to make any armour, so why not?
>>28709006Hand it over
There are several of these empowering treasures, each corresponding to a specific god. I don't know which corresponds to whom, unfortunately.Anyway, offered 60 cows, got turned down.
Vostangs attack. Adding one magic to pool. Driving them off for VICTORY!
>>28709052They need to learn not to keep their dead fucking bodies laying aroundthen people would use them as armor
>>28708952Hypothetical: What happens if you send exploration parties to other peoples' tulas?
>>28709086We have too many cows! They are like garbage to us!Offer 75.
Baranthos event. Heroic Combat, Excellent Leadership, Good Magic.>>28709155Counts as an exploration of unclaimed land. Chance of non-region specific treasure or event, I think.
>>28709172Yes, we have too many cows and we can't feed them all.
Heroic Combat does not mean you always win. Wonder if it's age?
Hah! We won anyway.
>>28709268Maybe that particular event has a really rough chance?>>28709172>>28709243I think, if we can't feed all the cattle, we should slaughter the excess so the herd doesn't starve. Or just dump them on some other clan.
The Stag Hearths too? One magic and driving off.
>>28709286>53 killed>103 injuredGod DAMN
Harran event. Oh boy, I don't know if he's worth resurrecting a third time. He has Heroic Combat....Wait, he has Heroic Combat?!
>>287093242hes fucking OLD
>>28709299We need to start gifting them like crazy and making large sacrifices to the gods.
>>28709324Fimbulvetr: Even our farmers can beat you up.
I skimmed this thread a bit and this looks super interesting, so I'll probably pick it up soon. Any starter advice so I don't fuck up too badly?
Even if he does have Heroic Combat, he's 58 and worships the pacifist farming god. Well okay, Barntar's still a member of the Storm Tribe, but the point remains.>>28709354Don't fuck with the ducks.
We are as gods.
>>28709354Around ducks, watch your luck.Same goes for trolls, dwarves, dragon newts and probably some other groups.
>>28709399...how much grain you reckon that Maran Gor ritual being preformed at the temple will generate?
>>28709399I'm becoming concerned about how everyone seems to have stronger magic, can we sacrifice some cows to fix that.
>>28709399You'd think our enemies would learn that fucking with us just didn't work. But they just can't seem to get it.If this keeps up we should see about going tribal war on their asses.Actually, can we do that just to obliterate as many of the Staghearths and Greydogs as we can? They're clans fucking with a tribe.
>>28709299>Or just dump them on some other clan.If /tg/ has taught me anything about KoDP, it's that past a certain point, donating cattle is the optimum answer to overpopulation.
>>28709426Dont fuck with the beast kin
>>28709435It's how much magic they put into the battle. We rarely put even one point of magic into battles.
>>28709354I wish I knew how to play at the beginning. I only know how to play when we have a gigantic herd of cows, food stores to last for years, a pile of treasure, more magic than you can ever spend and an army triple the size of any other clan.
>>28709452This. We're so damn strong that their magic basically does fuck all for them. Plus the magic we invest in War at the start of the year counts as "pre-loaded" magic in battles.
This reminds me of the playthrough of XCOM enemy unknown on /vr/ where we just curb stomped everything
>>28709374>>28709447I've always heard attacking the ducks is a bad idea, but what happens? Do the beastman all gang up on you? What if your ancestral enemies are beastmen, and you're obliged to attack them?
>>28709482They let undead swarm our tula and CLEAVE AND SMITE
>>28709354well theres a few shrines that are really useful.... double weapon thane power one.heroquesting is important, but not all quests are worthwhile to start withmake sure to at least cattle raid semi regularly else bad things happenexplore your tula a bunch before exploring the surrounding areas
And that's the year!I've highlighed the shrine to Kero Fin at the bottom right. Looking at the pastures you can see that we've hit a crisis level of crowding; our sheep are in trouble too. I'll probably convert wildlands first thing next session/tomorrow.>>28709354Seriously though, number 1 rookie mistake: attacking the ducks. Don't do that, sacrifice to the gods in units of 7 up to 21, get Truesword, Shield and Silvertongue ASAP, don't invest magic in Children or Hunting, don't raid during Dark season unless you hate ice demons, explore your tula once a year, don't trust the Trickster and make sure your next chief is young.>>28709460Act like you have all those things. Pretend long enough and the game gives up and hands it to you.>>28709482You don't have to attack them, you just can't be nice to them. Mild dickishness is enough to satisfy the ancestors. Anyway, piss them off enough and their meaner cousins take you on. Keep at it and every beastman in Dragon Pass steamrolls your clan.
>>28709482dont fuck with ducks
>>28709482Why have them as your enemies? It is just not a good choice.
Here's our preview: This omen again, and average harvest.Thanks for playing all, hope you had a good time. See you (much earlier) tomorrow. I'll make an announcement on https://twitter.com/WatashiwaOnline when it's time to run.See you then.
>>28709557Are beastmen harder to deal with than trolls?
>>28709525have to say its a pretty nice looking place to live
>>28709575they are many
>>28709575It is generally not a good idea to make a race that is an 'apocalypse' enemy your ancestral enemy. Good choices are generally elves or frost demons.
>>28709575You don't get a battle screen when they hit. Just a scene of the devastation.
>>28709481Oh sweet summerfag, you know nothing of the deep winters. This is twice, twice we've twisted this game to our ends. And the first... The true Runic Men. We subjugated all of Dragon Pass. We fucked mountains.I turn my eye to this playthrough, because it is a worthy successor. /vr/ couldn't do 70 threads on fuck-all.
>>28709620>summerfagJust because i missed the first playthrough doesnt mean i just started coming herestop that
>>28709571Help looks like requests and lots of exploration are in order,
>>28709635It's December, before the winter break. It's a term of endearment at this juncture. Sorry to rustle.
>>28709620Runic Men managed to win the game even when they conquered all the other tribes? Anybody got a link to the archives on these guys?
>>28709671Sure give me a moment.
>>28709671http://archive.foolz.us/tg/thread/19704216/That's thread 70, the end state.
>>28709671>http://archive.foolz.us/tg/search/subject/king%20of%20dragon%20pass/page/4/Alright here it is. Scroll down to the bottom and find the first thread which is "king of dragon pass group play". Then work your way back through the numbered threads.Unfortunately foolz archives this old only save the thumbnail of images. But if you have been following Fimbulveltr you should be familiar enough with the events to follow along.
>>28709851>>28709806>the main part of it, the pictures are gone foreverI fucking HATE foolz
>>28709940Don't hate on an archive. Make a better archive.
>>28710007Well instead of having their servers holy images they hold other boardshosting is expensiveso are servers
>>28710007Yeah, let's make an archive full of images that no longer exist.
>>28709940That is the price you pay for archiving everything. Sup/tg/ has to regularly purge itself because hosting space isn't free.That said the problem on foolz got much worse when they decided to increase the number of archived boards. It used to be just a handful, including /tg/ and /a/. But now for some retarded reason they decided to archive /q/, /v/, and /vg/. All boards with much higher volumes of traffic than /tg/ and honestly quite full of shit comments no one would ever want to read.
>>28710709yep. So we'll see how long they can keep it going.
