Only the Madblade and Tribeburner tribes remain unaffiliated, however the shamans inform you that it would take them longer to relocate to your village than it will take for the alliance against you to begin their attack. Your tribe is still expanding and is reaching full combat capacity and other than the farms you are well protected by the wall.> The enemy allied tribes’ main force will arrive soonThere are giant lizard riders who are walking around near the area you’ve settled in, probably advance scouts from the Foulraider tribe. They are not attacking so you still have some time to prepare for the war if you want to or you can just keep learning magic and expanding the economic base of the tribe. > Train yourself (in what)> Learn one spell (Takes half your time)> Learn two spells (Takes all your time)> Train goblins (in what)> Direct goblins (which squad(s))> Build something (what)> Deal with the lizard scouts (how, send who)> Skip to the war> OtherWelcome back to Afterlife Quest!Twitter: https://twitter.com/ApophisquestsTGAskfm: http://ask.fm/ApophisTGPastebins: http://pastebin.com/u/ApophisTGPrevious Threads: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Afterlife%20Quest
>>41849702> Build something (walls around farms and some additional open land for expansion during potential seige)>contact unaffiliated tribes (attempt an alliance or atleast understand the Blackfury tribes reasons for war)
>>41849802nice and slow today so I'll just move on ahead with this.
Since the scouts are keeping their distance you have the goblins begin to cut more large blocks to use in expanding the wall at least around the farming area. The new area inside the walls with the expansions will be nearly twice times the original size of the village with most of that going to the farms. Even with your oversight the building of the wall takes far longer that normally because everyone is on watch waiting for the lizard riders to launch a surprise attack. > Wall expansion half way completedThe shamans spend their time communicating with the unaffiliated tribes attempting to gain an alliance with them. However the Madblade tribe refuses to do so, they think that if they wait out the war that in the end they will be able to use their power to rule over the tribes themselves. The Tribeburners are surprisingly already following the enemy alliance, unsurprisingly however that is only so that during the war they will get to indiscriminately set everything on fire. It will be likely that the two other tribes will be close by but they won’t be of much help at all it seems. With a wall surrounding the farms though you will not need to worry about a siege since your food supply will be protected.Then you see the lizard scouts all quickly flee and shortly after a group of ten of the hovering spherical drones appear and begin to slowly scan the area.> The enemy allied tribes’ main force is nearly within range to attack> Fight the drones yourself> Have the goblin squads take the drones down> Forge squads have an idea> Get the wall finished> Other
>>41850451Lets hear what forge squads think and finish the wall.Have the shamans try to talk peace with the warring tribes and ask why they want to shed blood between tribes - an act that would weaken all the tribes.
>>41850451> Get the wall finished>listen to the forge squad idea.> set a watch on drones, don't attack unless they act hostile.
>>41850872It really is slow. Dang. I hope more people show up soon.
>>41850887Its all good, people have work not everyone can be neets.The forge squads will want to show off their thing by killing the dronesDo you want to stop them from doing that?
>>41850945Let them do what they want.
“We makes giant crossbows!” the forge goblins excitedly tell you. “Big big! Shoot from top wall.”Then they bring out a group of five small ballistae, well for the goblins they are pretty big, and drag them up onto the walls. It takes them just a few seconds to prepare them for firing once set up, and somewhat predictably the first volley mostly misses the drones. The drones begin to close on the wall but the goblins are able to reload and fire another two times and this time every shot hits a drone dead center. The sound of self-destructing drones is drowned out by the cheers of happy goblins. The forge squads assure you that they can make more of them quickly now that it is known that the ballistae work.> 10 ballistae squads created, with two ballistae each the squads will defend the walls and take no barracks room.With the drones destroyed and the demonstration finished you get the goblins back on task to finish the wall around the farms, the ballistae won’t work as well without a nice wall to mount them on. With the lizard scouts gone the walls are quickly finished just in time for the arrival of the enemies’ main force to arrive.(1/2)
(2/2)You try to have the shaman’s communicate with the opposing side’s shamans but the only response they get is that the white coat humans are making them do this.The goblins are being driven forward by those horned beasts while more of the drones float around scanning things and observing. Back behind the giant crabs you are able to spot something very big hidden by a tent. Overall from what you see the goblins are still only armed with simple bone weapons, not much of a threat for your iron clad goblins.> Challenge the opposing side’s leader to single combat> Get the combat squads prepared to defend the wall> Begin firing the ballistae (Specific targets?)> Wait for them to attack first> Other>Awareness bonusA small group of Shadowkiller goblins are trying to sneak in around the wall via the lake. You’ll need to be fast to catch them.> Go yourself (Can’t also challenge)> Send the spider riders> Send the tiger riders
>>41851409Fire ballista at Drones and horned beasts. Ask for the opposing side to convene with you in a neutral area to discuss the war, and terms of it if we cannot negotiate peace. Have combat squads prepared to defend the wall, except for Tiger and spider riders to go intercept the shadowkillers.
>>41851409> Challenge the opposing side’s leader to single combat While having some squads flank and attack the minotaur guys.>send the spider squad to defend against the shadowkiller squad.
>>41851509Me.>>41851485I could back this, basically I'm for minimal goblin bloodshed, and maximizing lab coat follower bloodshed for now.Gobs are our afterlife family.
writing for interception, firing shots, and trying to talk.
While you wait for the drones and horned beasts to get a bit closer to fire on you send the all the mounted squads to deal with the Shadowkillers, they should be fast enough and it keeps them hidden from the main conflict for now.> Squad rolls 1, 12, 13, 19, 15One of the squads mounted on spiders can’t seem to get it together, they are panicking from being faced with war it seems. The saber-tooth tiger beasts however bolt off with amazing speed but lack your level of skill and can’t seem to track down the shadowkillers. The other two spider squads arrive at the lakeside next, one goes to support the tiger riders trying to sniff out the Shadowkillers. The other spider squad seems to remember that they are dealing with Shadowkillers so they look closely at the water purification buildings since they are the closest to the lake. The shadows of the buildings are unusually dark, so they open fire into the darkness and with the luck of their insight manage to kill the sneaking Shadowkillers who were defenseless against the poisoned bolts.There, the targets are within range to minimize goblin casualties. You signal the ballistae squads to open fire. The massive bolts decimate the drones and then the second volley put down several of the horned beasts. Unfortunately the drones self-destruct causing mass casualties in the opposing army as shrapnel cuts into their ranks. Well that will make it harder to try and talk them down but you still try to get the other tribe’s chiefs and shamans to meet with you to negotiate peace.“Yous cheat, no peace!” The goblins begin to chant.“White coat humans right yous cheat!” The Darkfury chief appears and yells at you. “Only if yous stronger than new champion we stops.” He says.Looks like they are trying to single you out thinking that if you die they can easily take on the village’s defenses.> Accept their challenge and fight alone> Keep firing the ballistae> Have the melee squads sortie> Other
>>41852234> Accept their challenge and fight alone Have squads flank and attack horned creatures during challenge.
>>41852234> Accept their challenge and fight alonePoison our sword and the rest of our daggers before we go in, and drink a stamina potion. And make sure we have mana potion in our flask.
>>41852286This could anger the other side causing an all out brawl to erupt. Just having the squads go out, but not attacking anything yet would be ok.>>41852306This you can do without bothering them though
>>41852234>> Accept their challenge and fight alonemight as well. Have the ballistae squads keep an eye out and kill anything that tries to close in on us, mostly the drones or horned beasts.
>Regeneration: Rank 5>Recover hp equal to your number of ranks in this ability per turn of combat. Your skill in this ability now causes it to heal one non-magical status effect per turn as well. Higher ranks may have additional effects.So basically, unless they one shot us, they have no chance of killing us?Ouch. Really all we have to watch out for is death by a thousand debuffs.
>>41852368Ok, no squads openly attacking stuff
>>41852392Pretty much, everyone has been voting for a very ability heavy build so you have low stats but can go up against things that should be normally far beyond someone else of a similar level.
Looks like we are going to accept the challengeAny particular spells that you want prepared for this fight? You can currently have one spell of each level.Currently you have Ignite weapon and Searing ray.
>>41852605Sounds good.ignite weapon, should be fine.and searing ray will be to any who try and get to close to us. if the ballistae's fail to keep enemy reinforcements from getting to us.
>>41852605Bless and monstrous growthI feel they could be better than the other setupI would go for poison but our opponent miht not be affected for all i know
>I’ll just let you have whatever spell gets voted for use first for both levels like usual then.Well this is obviously a trap no doubt but if you face it head on and win then the display of strength could finish this war instantly. So you accept their challenge, after preparing your equipment of course.> Weapons will now apply poison, flask swapped for mana potion, you feel energizedYou have the melee squads accompany you out of the gate and form up protective ranks around it as you walk out to face whatever is in store for you.“Good yous fight like true warrior no cheats.” The Darkfury chief says. He then signals the army to spread apart. The whole enemy army spreads apart forming a huge ring around you as the strange massive tent is slowly drug forward.“White coat humans make this new goblin champion yous lose now.” The Darkfury chief taunts.There is a crackling of electricity as the tent is thrown away into the air revealing a giant robot the size of a house. It has main cannon, multiple smaller guns, and even some missile pods.“Reactor online...sensors online...weapon systems online....all functioning systems...phenomenal.” A booming robotic voice states.“Drone status…destroyed…compensating…main target identified…engaging target.”Well fuck.> Close distance and attack> You have a gun now too> Use spell> Other
>>41852819>> Close distance and attackObvious weakspot detected, right up close between the front legs.Can't aim down, and once we take a leg from either side he can't do anything to us.Check mate, scientists.Goliath, offline!
>>41852819>> Close distance and attackdestroying this should get the goblins on our side.then we're going to scavenge a tank from this thing.and a few more guns from all the drones.
>>41852869I wonder if our sword can phase through things at all? It can attack incorporeal things, and it looks incorporeal itself. At the very least, lightning damage should fry parts where it hits, electronics are real sensitive.Anyways, i vote for this, and If shit gets too heavy we can always try to use one of our unidentified magic items. Or, somehow make e robot open our lich spellbook.
>>41852819>Close distance and attack. Maybe get on top of it. It doesn't appear to have melee weapons.Good thing lots of drones have been destroyed, they would have helped it somehow it seems.
>>41852967The sword doesn't phase through things, it just acts as being fully solid for hitting both normal and incorporeal things.I doubt the robot will open the spellbook, but you can give it a shot if you really want to. And looks like attacking the robot wins so its time for 2d10+9

This robot has a clear weakness right between its front pair of legs you think as you rush to attack the thing. It responds by opening fire with its machine guns, bullets fly all around you as the shield on your back radiates its protective magic. Bullets hit you but you are like goddman superman as bullets just bounce off of you.“Error error…target immune to standard ammunition…compensating…explosive rounds loaded…reengaging target.”>26But you are too fast for the robot, you get right under it and slice at one of its front legs with the intent to cripple the machine. Catching it right at the joint your sword crackles with sparks as you cleanly slice the leg off. The robot then leaps away from you with surprising grace and agility.“Danger…target’s offensive capacity underreported…compensating…force shield activated…reengaging target.”A blue bubble of glowing light appears around the robot protecting it from further harm, and its missile pods open and ready to fire.> Your status - unharmed>Enemy status – Force field active, one leg lost and explosive ammunition prepared> Smash past the shield> You have a gun now too> Use spell> Other

Alright some ideas floating around2d10+9 to try and break its shieldand magic if you want it
Rolled 5, 2 + 9 = 16 (2d10 + 9)>>41853633I say ignite weapon.Electrical flame.
Rolled 5, 1 + 9 = 15 (2d10 + 9)>>41853590Fog does seem the most useful in warAnd against this thing>>41853633I vote we both fog and ignite weapon
Rolled 3, 5 + 9 = 17 (2d10 + 9)>>41853633Shield breaker time!
>>41853670it goes in the options section. for next time.
Rolled 8, 9 + 9 = 26 (2d10 + 9)>>41853670I...typed it in the wrong placeOn the bright side we got sequentials again
>>41853688Yeah i know i just wasnt paying attention when typing it>>41853689Son of a bitch if i had done it right then we'd have this in the first three
>>41853577>>41853569Yeah, I'm a derp. Got them mixed up.Got too many items man. I can't hold them all.
It looks like people want ignite weapon on, but do you also want fog?>Y>N
>>41853727>>YIt'll probably only work for a second until it does some weird secondary vision thing, but that'll be extra time.
>>41853702would have been nice..easily destroying the shield.>>41853633Badass: Rank 6Reginald is so incredibly good at what he does that he gains a stackable bonus to all die rolls equal to his ranks in badass.6Ki strike: Rank 4The madblade tribe described a way to use your innate magical ability to hit harder and faster. Each rank in this ability increases your base damage by 1. For example if you have ignite weapon in use and two Ki strike ranks you will then hit for 3 mundane and 1 fire damage.+4?*Ignite weapon: Cost 1 manaThe user’s equipped weapon, or body becomes wreathed with fire. The flame is magical in nature so the user will deal fire typed magical damage. Damage is increased by 1/10 of the users ki. This effect lasts for three rounds of combat.+2?Strength: 20Strength represents how strong a character is, every 10 points in strength gives +1 to all attack/damage rolls+2and + 1 atleast for the great sword? possibly more since it's electrical vs force field?
>>41853792So ki strike only works when we use a mana/ki related ability, like ignite weapon?
>>41853907No it applies to all your attacks, including throw things. Before you threw a knife and it tore a hole through a horned creature's chest.How strong could its shield be, after all you chopped its leg off easily enough. You rush at it again careful to try and circle around its main cannon when it launches dozens of missiles. But just like the bullets the few that hit you explode uselessly against you, even the explosions don’t feel that hot. You know how to use fire too though so you channel your mana into your sword and release it with a blaze of fire.> 17You hack at the force field and it starts to flicker when the robot suddenly spins around as though it has wheels on the bottom of its legs. It then fires its main cannon right into your chest, sending you tumbling away from it. You feel your ribs start to pop back into place after the massive impact, damn that hurt.“Magical discharge detected…compensating…elemental matrices aligned…reengaging target.”Time to try out that new fog spell in real combat you think, hopefully you’ll still be able to still the flickering shield but it won’t be able to see you. You expand your mana into the air around you making the water condense into a thick layer of fog, releasing the spell obscures the area so the damn robot shouldn’t be able to shoot you anymore.> Your status – 6/6 hp, 11/12 mana> Ignite weapon 2/3 turns remain> Fog 2/3 turns remain>Enemy status – Force field flickering, one leg lost and explosive ammunition prepared“Magical discharge detected…compensating….”Damn thing is adapting to anything you throw at it, better not give it time and strike fast now> Keep smashing that force field> Try to throw something right as the shield flickers> You have a gun now too> Other
Throw the flaming acidpoison dagger right as it flickers. Aim for the sensors, or at least one of them if multiple.Fog doesnt actually list a time limit on the spellsheet, but the robot might be trying to dispell it. Is that the case?
>>41853936Shield is weakened now.smashing it again should do the trick.I am hoping this isn't all being recorded and sent back to the lab. Cause fuck have we shown a lot of what we're capable of.
How massively impressed was everyone when we shrugged off bullets and looked unharmed a few seconds after the cannon to the chest?
>>41853936>>41854034Souportan.I just realized we have DR- as well.Fuck, fighting Reggie must be like punching a brick wall that puts itself back together.
>>41854088when we destroy this thing.We're going to need to really work on increasing our skills. for the next thing they throw at us.And have shamans improve the defenses and attack power of our "fort".

“…Sonar unit online…reengaging target..”The robot opens with a hail of exploding bullets, which are even less effective than the missiles it tried to hit you with. And since it can apparently see you just fine in the fog you get closer for an attack. You take aim and throw your two bone knives and poison dagger at the robot. > 23The two bone knives hit the robot’s missile pods which explode and fall to the ground. The poison dagger embeds itself right into the round thing that you assume is its sensors.

There is a rush of heat as a huge glob of blue flame hits you, its sticks to your body setting you on fire. But you don’t have time to care about the little things - you rush at the robot again waiting for the flickering shield and strike. > 26Small red and yellow hexagons form over the area of the shield you hit there is a crackling of electricity as your sword slices past the shield narrowly missing the robot. The robot tries to respond by targeting you with its main cannon but you are able to get underneath the robot outside of its range. “Force field compromised…compensating…deploying electro-whips…reengaging target.”A pair of long robotic tentacles extend out of the robot’s body and start to hum with power. > Your status – 6/6 hp, 6/12 mana> Fog 1/3 turns remain>Enemy status – Force field broken, one leg lost, missile pods lost, sensor damaged, electro-whips deployed and mobility restriction rounds prepared.> Attack the main body> Cut more legs off> Cut the whips off> Shoot it> Other

Forgot to ask but do you want to use Ignite weapon?
The robot flails its whips about trying to wrap them around you, but the most they manage to do is clip you a few times. Pretty nasty shock but it doesn’t stop you from setting your sword ablaze once again. You see the robot about to leap back away from you once again and - >24You swing your sword upwards trying to catch its legs and as luck would have it, you hit the last two on the same side that you cut a leg off from before. When the robot lands it collapses to once side crippled. It then fires its guns in a circle around it, the bullets burst open like capsules covering the ground with some kind of thick substance.“Mobility system offline…compensating…transformation sequence activated.”The robot’s legs begin to retract into its main body as it sheds bits of broken machinery.

You shout at the goblins I mean seriously this damn robot is obviously cheating.“Human dumb, champion strongest.” The goblins yell back at you.Well whatever, you can’t let the robot complete this transformation so you get a running start and try to leap over the ring of strange fluid. The robot responds by opening fire using the whips to move itself around to face you, goddamn can’t it at least turn its guns off to transform.> 18The robot shoots you several times with its mobility restriction rounds, it doesn’t hurt but you are now covered with some kind of sticky gel that you can’t get off.

The robot is mostly helpless as it is transforming, whatever kind of tank it is trying to turn into must have some sort of advantage so you decide to kill it now.> 24You use your sword to cut into the robot, aiming for things that look important – its guns, the whip things, whatever these other oddly shaped bits are and so on.

A wall of light slams into you followed by the force of the explosion, you get thrown away and crash into your village’s wall. > Your status – 2/6 hp, 5/12 mana, missing a boot>Enemy status – self-destructed and totally destroyedYour goblins begin to cheer and chant chief when you pull yourself out of the wall’s trench, as you climb out the skin on the side of your body facing the explosion begins to grow back with a tingling sensation. You try to say something, but it appears that your vocal cords don’t exist right now.“Human cheat! Bonetooth cheat!” The Darkfury chief starts up a chant – oh good your ears work again at least. The crowd begins to take up the chant as your own goblins jeer back at them.“Enough!” Yells another voice. ”Madblade and Tribeburner see challenge! No cheats!”“Ahahahaha human on fire good show!” Someone else yells.“Now yous fights to rule all tribe!” A goblin breaks free of the crowd and lunges at you with the Madblade’s special sword. Looks like your sword got flug away by the explosion, but you still have the Bonetooth blade strapped in place under the shield on your back and you didn’t lose your gun either.> Pull out the sword and attack> Punch him> Grapple and take his sword> Shoot him> Try to make him stop> Other

>>41857165I see your point.>>41857196> Pull out the sword and attackman if we win, we have a lot more we will have to upgrade.massize farms,a dozen clean water labs. But I think our shamans will be able to handle that. And let us focus on training for the next thing the lab coats send our way.
>>41857248Just the +6 from badass, your face got exploded off and you are having trouble talking at all.
>>41857196Grab the madblade from him and punch him unconcious.If we succeed, raise he madblade up and stare down the rest.

> 27 vs dc 21You grab the goblin with one hand and the sword’s blade with another; you then pull the sword away from the goblin and throw him head first into the wall. Knocking him unconscious but not dead probably.With the Madblade’s champion defeated a giant lizard walks forward. “Now yous fight both Foulraider and Darkfury human cheat!” The foulraider chief says while the Darfury chief’s claws grow longer and jagged. It looks like you are going to have to fight everyone at this rate. The two goblins then rush towards you to attack.“Tribeburner want more fire!” The tribeburner chief throws a flaming bottle at you.Your whole body is feeling much better now at least.> Your status – 6/6 hp, 5/12 mana, missing a boot, acquired Madblade sword> Dodge and attack> Grab it and throw it at your new challengers> Let it hit you> Other

>>41857657Grab it, do not throw yet. "This is not an honourable fight. You will each fight me, one on one, to show that you are strong enough to defend each and every goblin of the tribes. Only the worthy can lead, and only those who can protect us all are worthy."
So if the goblins are doing mundane non-elemental damage, they have to do 9 damage in a single round to kill us at full health, and since we regen 5 HP a round, if they don't oneshot us, and we are at 1 HP, we get back up to six the next round, and are at full health.Sweet Jesus that is a tall order.

> 9, 9, 9 is that you Herman Cain?You grab the bottle and throw it right at the lizard mount - it causes an explosion of flaming stuff to scatter about covering bother goblins and the lizard, good old molotovs. The Tribeburner chief and most of his tribe fall over laughing at this development, crazy little guys really love fire.Covered in lacerations from shards of the bottle hitting them the goblins begin to howl in pain, the Foulraider jumps off the lizard and the pair of goblins try to roll around to put the flames out. Sadly for them so does the lizard who rolls over and crushes the goblins to death. The Stonegut chief comes forth next, with him are the shamans from both the alliance and the unaffiliated tribes.“Yous the strongest all tribe follow yous.” The chief announces, with the shamans supporting him it doesn’t look like there are any complainers. >The pit’s goblin tribes are now unified.There will be a lot of work to integrate the new goblins since they are roughly double in population compared to the Bonetooth tribe.Do you want to save the lizard from burning to death?>Y>N> [ End ]Going to have to end things here for today.I’ll stick around for questions/comments/criticism/spending exp.>You finished a thread, thanks for playing +10exp> Tribal unity 10/10 +70exp> Tribal war resolved +10exp> Herman Cain bonus +9 Luck, +9 exp, +9 stat points>Current total exp: 99>Current total stat points : 9

>>41858241Going to grab some food, then do loot.
Level up meditation to level ten and unlock bonus thing?
>>41858189also upgrade meditate to max.want to know what it does then i can deal with everything after.
Meditation to ten44 remainIf we convert the rest to stats we have a total of 20 points to dump into stuff.Now, im interested in seeing what the 100 specials are, and luck is our closest one, and luck is always good. We COULD pump the fuck up out of it.Or, if you feel it more appropriate, we could balance it out towards more magic and shit. Having higher intelligence will likely help us make vast jumps in technology and building techniques in our society.
>>41858221Totally got to save the lizard! It's a stupid beast, which needs loving after, like the gobs.
>>41858393We need maximum Strength.That'll allow us to fuck shit up in combat even if it has high DR or health.And being able to suplex a metal gear is pretty fucking cool.
>>41858432>max luck>we trip and accidentally kick a pebble into the metal gears massive weakspot
>>41858446>then because we're so lucky, the backlash of bad luck needed to create a Karmic balance means Nanomachines, son, steps out of it and punches our tailbone into our eye-socket.
When all tribes are fully integrated, what will their general abilities and traits be?Currently we have foulcurse intelligence and magic capability and chemistry knowledgeSickeater poison resistance and chemistry knowledgeBonetooth...uh...potential?
>>41858501I wonder what theyll look like tooAnd if shamans share traits too
>>41858501so meditation 10leaves us with 44badass 6 -> 7leaves us with 16Ki strike 4 -> 5 leaves us with 1 point left over.for stats hows about 7 to will power, adds another spell we can prepare.and 2 to luck. Or bank the last two. Or put into x.
>>41858592I think we ought to focus on stats more nowGetting to a hundred of anything would probably be a huge boon
>>41858189Do we get anything from Weapon mastery: MAXand Explosives handling: MAXlike hand to hand gave ki-strike?I assume ranged gives a bonus skill too, when maxed?
>>41858592>>41858625On a different noteLuck still shows no sign of trainability, whereas the rest canWe might be better off buffing luck when possible and training for the rest
>>41858625I saw some one put it up, but I am not sure we can convert exp to stats upgrade.and even if we can upgrading a few abilities even higher won't be to bad. badass good for everything.meditation should be even more useful.ki strike increase all damage. Once maxed out should be interesting.
>>41858671Its at a rate of four exp per stat point
>>41858189Save the lizard
>>41858700I would rather not right now.meditation getting maxed should be obvious. Getting badass up only makes sense.ki would be nice but not absolutely needed.I can see dc's being abnormally high because we focus on abilities more than we should have. making things impossibly easy.I wonder how magic is seen in the city.
Alright back from food.>>41858627Some abilities when maxed don't unlock new things. You may require extra training or lack required knowledge to unlock things. Or there isnt anything to unlock at all.It looks like people want to take mediation to ten. So here is what you unlockExternal ki control: Rank 0The energy permeating the universe is typically unable to be bent to a person’s will. This ability however allows manipulation of external energies. The amount of ‘external mana’ may fluctuate based on location but is roughly equal to 2 to the (rank in skill)th power. This ability has no rank limit.Feel free to argue about how you want to spend the rest of your things.
>>41858796I think we ought to raise either intelligence to build up our city far more efficiently and prepare the goblins more effectively for the next battle, or raise our luck for the sake of having things fall in our lap a bit instead of having so many negative random events
>>41858893Yooooo! Forget ki strike we should get this up as much as we can
>>41858917I am fine with that.an upgrade to badass leaves us with 16.and 0 to 3 leaves us with 6 points left over.For External Ki Control.This should be really good.
>>41858917Why not both?
>>41858917We can get it up to five with nine points left overTwo to the fifth is 32 mana points of manipulation, extreme manEight points to stat meaning two extra11 stat points to work with if we do convert the pointsAnyways thats a ton of mana
>>41858986I think that External manipulation is designed for spells with fuckhuge cost, or ritual type spells.
Can we start using the upgraded detect magic that has no penalty? We have a readily available supply of mana potion, so it won't be an issue.
>>41858893>>41858986 Apophis is it 2 to the power of the skill level or was that a typo meaning 2 times the skill level?
>>41859015It was pretty clearly 2^(x) with x being skill level
>>41858501>>41858522Stonegut – Bonus to armor as per DR 1Foulraider – Goblins are better at taming, breeding, and raising animalDarkfury – Lich’s servants gain evil powers, negated by lich being killed and population boostTribeburners – The love of fire, explosives and flammable things productionMadblade – Berserk and Damage boost as per Ki Strike 1Greatfang – Bonus to durability as per Toughness 1Shadowkiller – Bonus to sneaking, vaguely defined shadow themed powersNew shamans will pop up sharing the traits.>>41859015Its exponential so at 10 you gain a pool of around 1024 external mana to use.
>>41859055Our goblins are gonna be pretty knowledgeable about chemistry, What with tribeburner sickeater and foulcurse being unitedThe good, the bad, and the chemical reactions
>>41859055I just wanted to be sure about the gains, it seemed pretty OP. But it that is awesome!
>>41858241Even with all the new shaman's helping you are only able to identify these two items.Grey dragon scale – A scale from the underbelly of a dragon that shouldn’t exist it smells of ozone and snow. The scale has complete immunity to electricity and cold and it is pretty big about six square feet.Book of witchcraft – This book contains chain lightning (6), elemental burst (5), ice blast (4), cure (3), quicken spell and empower spell.
>>41859180Learn quicken and empower
>>41859202Of course you want to do that, so greedy with the abilitiesQuicken spell: Rank 1This ability allows you to cast offensive spells of a level equal to your rank in this ability as instantaneous actions as per buffs. Higher ranks in this ability may have additional effects.Empower spell: Rank MAXThis ability allows you to double the cost of a spell to receive a 50% increase in effectiveness. For four times the cost of a spell you receive 100% increase in effectiveness. You can empower a spell at most two times.
>>41859303I wonder.Maybe if we 200% empower a fog spell with rank ten in the outside ki thing and level 100 kiWe can permanently shroud the ring in fog
>>41859340That would need some kind of permanency effect. Which probably isn’t even a thing, just like enchanting isn’t a thing, you just somehow find magical items. You shouldn’t look for such abilities they won’t help you much at all.Besides what are you going to really do with 200 million cubic feet of fog? Fill up several football stadiums? Do they even have football stadiums here?
>>41859414Its a lot bigger than a few football stadiums200 000 000 feet is37 878.787 miles
>>41859453A search told me that Dallas cowboys say their stadium is 104 million cubic feet in volume. So I made the total volume you can generate with fog max out at about that.
I agree to raising badass by one, and raising willpower up to twentyWhat are we at after that?
>>4185955716 exp and 2 stat points would be left if you do that.
>>41859606I am fine with badass and will power.I do say we raise External Ki Control to 3, leaving us with 6 exp left over. and 2 stat point left over.
>>41859453>>41859539Cubic feet vs. Linear feet585 feet by 585 feet by 585 feet =~ 200000000 million cubic feet.
>>41859606Save the rest of the stat points then yeahKi control To three Quicken spell to two because we have access to level two spells Three leftover exp
Scavenged loot after the war?
>>41859684How are we upgrading spells?
>>41859824Its a spell ability, not a spell
>>41859823ofcourse.We're going to find so much shit.we killed a couple drones. and this huge robot. Easily find some really good stuff.
>>41859823I forgot to ask for a 1d100 for that someone roll one for me to see if you get good things.>>41859824Spell don't upgrade, but you can gain new abilities that can be used to modify them.
Rolled 67 (1d100)>>41859855High or low good?
Rolled 19 (1d100)>>41859855I feel like luck should have a more quantifiable effect. Like maybe every ten points you roll an extra dice for random or loot stuff and take the best result of the dicepool
>>41859922Just determines what I should generate for you.67 is pretty boring middleso you get this set of thingsMagic items are marked with * thanks to your magic detecting feather.*Five egg shaped blinking lumps*, *five damaged robot’s cannons*, eighty-three pieces of steel shrapnel, four lengths of robotic electro-whip, twenty-nine intact anti-mobility rounds, forty-one intact standard rounds, one intact shield generation subsystem and *sixty-seven fractured crystals*>>41859933For your level of luck I already reroll chances to get rare things while looting, among other things. You could always take it to 100 to get a special thing.
Rolled 7, 7, 2, 10, 8, 7 = 41 (6d10)>>41860026use the upgraded magic detection that costs mana to use, and...maybe empower it to see if that helps?
>>41860026>one intact shield generation subsystemAnd once we learn how to replicate it, or at the very least, use it, we are become Turtle, the stronkest of defense.
>>41860137Increase the scale and we can have extreme defenses for the city.And then we miniaturize it and give each goblin an energy shieldOn a different note we should trap the shit out of outside areas, especially where things teleported in before
>>41860212>okay guys, we're going to bring in our new weapon to beat him!>YEAAAHHH!!!!>they teleport in>right onto a pressure plate wired to what is the equivalent of three-hundred tons of TNTRIP
>>41860091You already know that the crystals can store a spell for later use.> Scanning probe transmitters – Small egg shaped devices that scan and send encoded information back to somewhere. They are already linked and transmitting to an unknown location.> Morphic battle cannons – If linked to an advanced computer system these cannons are capable of generating new forms of ammunition to actively respond to the threats a target may pose. They are currently damaged, from your examinations you think one complete unit can be constructed. Require a source of mana to fire.>>41860137Yes when I rolled for loot you hit the robot's shield then you got 95 for how intact it was after being exploded. very lucky.
>>41860289>we can build a gun that runs off of fuckhuge external mana supply to fire adaptive ammunitionHold on, my dick just passed Saturn
>>41860289Can we have the forges build a thick lead (significantly lower melting point than iron) box to store the scanning probe transmitters in? Ask the shamans if they can ward it at all, too.
>>41860361Sure lead is probably a thing that goblins manage to scavenge every now and then. If you are extra paranoid you can even secure your lead box of magic scanners safely on the end of some rope in your garbage dump / void hole nothing to scan down there.
>>41860417I like that idea
Ask the new shamans exactly how the war started, and what the whitecoats did
I dont envy apophis, the tribe paste is gonna have to change a lot
>>41860599They are all a mess already and we are not even to thread ten yet. At least I won't need to remember the ten tribe names anymore.
>>41860662Has uniting the tribes done anything special, like unlock their prior intelligence or trollmorphing?If not...perhaps its going to soon be time to finish clearing out the ruins.We also must ask for a map of noteworthy locations in this ring.
Ok so for the madblade i was thinking about having the captain of a melee squad utilize and practice with it, except every day it gets switched to a new squad and captain to prevent the energy from building up and inspiring bloodlust, while possibly building up a tolerance to it and at the very least increasing swordsmanship
Here have a companion character sheet for your hard work. If you take your companions with you they may grow in power alongside you.http://pastebin.com/SWmPjYAMThanks for playing everyone.
How pliable or stiff is the grey dragonscale? We could probably fashion it into underclothes, or if its too stiff then work it into either a tower shield or armor addons
>>41861107very nice! Think we could possibly get gobstats?
>>41861175>good gobbos, Bonetooth and Sickeater Shamens>everyone else a shit
How badly would we have slaughtered in the war if we did it all out
>>41861256Well that Robot would probably have absolutely fucked our goblin population something fierce.So even though we would have killed a countless number of goblins, we would have lost a lot as well.
>>41861330I dunno ballista are powerful as fuck and deeply penetrate targets, all that energy transferred into a machine would seriously damage internalsFog could have been spammed for defense
Question answers:Since it comes from a dragon pretty stiff, able to withstand impacts from most weapons without being scratched, probably most useful to make a breastplate or shield with.Goblin stats I’m keeping hidden because they are faceless mooks not companions. With iron equipment, the wall, and poison the other goblins would have been massacred. I’ll let you imagine what kind of compensation the robot would have for a siege.
>>41861366It had missiles and a cannon.It could -easily- outrange the ballistae.Plus it had a shield, and we don't know what the transformation would let it do.
>>41861469Other goblins dont know how far it could shoot i betThey probably would deploy within range
>>41861397Hmm...six square feet is pretty big, i wager it could make both. It should be easy enough to layer onto our current equipment, stack effects and such
Is ten the max opinion someone can have of us?Does ten mean theyd do anything and everything for us?
