>The Rules:>You are an eldritch horror from another dimension, one of many. Your goal is to be summoned and prevent other eldritch horrors from being summoned or to destroy them when they arrive. The last eldritch horror on earth wins.>Before you are summoned you can only use your powers to a limited extent and have to rely on cultists to act. Cultists are mortals that you've appeared to in their dreams or have been brainwashed by other cultists. Most are incompetent but they try.>Inquisitors are the opposite of cultists, mortals that you've pissed off and will try to interrupt your plans.>The summoning ritual requires an Orb of Stalwart (artifact from before time, only five exist), dragon blood, (nectar from a rare plant), and a summoning circle spelling out Welcome To Earth [Insert-Name] in your native language which only you and your cultists know.>You have 3 personal actions every turn and can command cultists to take as many as you want them to. For every action you roll 1d6, 1 is crit fail, 2 is failure, 3 is partial success, 4 is success, 5 is major success, 6 is overshot, (so good something bad happens)If you're interested in playing make an eldritch horror and get a trip. I'll start when there's three but there's no player limit. (only a limited number of breakable Orbs of Stalwart)>Name: This can be anything, titles included.>Abilities: What you can do as an eldritch horror. You can have up to 5 and be anything (summoning demons, causing earthquakes, whatever) but boosting your own stats.>Appearance: What you look like. You don't have to be an eldritch abomination. Dark gods, high-tech aliens, evil wizards, anything is good as long as it's supernatural and trying to reach earth from another dimension.>Homeworld: Where you're from, what it's like, and maybe why you want to leave it for earth.>cont
>>4142564Every eldritch horror has 4 stats and 5 points to spend between them. 0 is bad, 1 is mediocre, 2-3 is good, 4 is great, +5 is apocalyptic. You can lower a stat to -1 for an extra point but it becomes abysmal. If you are killed you cannot be resurrected, it is game over, but if you're banished you can be resummoned if the requirements can be met.>Presence: How much the sight of you twists and warps mortals. The higher it is the stronger your cultists are when you're summoned.>Power: How strong your abilities are. This increases massively when you're summoned.>Physique: How strong and durable your physical form is. This is important when you're summoned but a non-factor early on.>Appeal: How much mortals like you. This makes it easier to get cultists and reduces humanity's hostility when you're summoned.
>>4142567>Name: Quazarul, Primordial god of Chaos, Insanity, and Luck.>Abilities: summon demons(can't control them), create storms, create bottomless pits, luck manipulation, and shapeshifting. >Appearance: A giant snake with their scales each being a diffrent color.>Homeworld: Quazarul comes from a world created by him and several other gods. However after an apocalyptic event it has been destroyed and is now a ocean that expands forever and constantly creates demons. As the last of the gods he is to weak to recreate the world so instead he wishes to enter our world and make the entire planet serve him>Presence -1>Power 2>Physique 4>Appeal 0

>>4142567>Name Los, The Voidstar, The Child in the Pitch Black Room.>Abilities[Network: Links mortal consciousnesses to each other through Los. Allows linked individuals to share, pool or distribute information, mental processing power, or any aspect of their individual psyche with each other. Mental strain or damage can be mitigated by by distributing it across the network.][Enbrighten: Gradually, but permanently, enhances the mental brilliance, potency, efficiency and output of the mortal consciousnesses linked to Los.] [Forecast: Bestows a glimpse of Los' twisted comprehension of time to the mortals linked to each other through it, granting them the ability to perceive events that have, and will, transpire in the recent past and immediate future.][Express: Los can convert the mental energy of the mortals linked to each other through it into telepathic potential, which it can unleash and direct through any mortal linked to it. The intensity of this psionic power is proportional to the number of humans linked to Los and the quality of their minds, and its utility is broad ranging from meddling with mortal perception, to subtly or overtly manipulating mortal thoughts and actions, to outright obliterating mortal consciousnesses.]>Appearance[Image Related]>OriginLos is a singularity that awoke. A speck of cosmic divinity forged beneath reality-breaking pressures, a newborn awareness entrapped by a recursive vortex of warped space-time initiated and perpetuated by its own existence. There was nothing to it, but a mind suspended in crushing nothingness. Thin slivers of its surface thoughts radiated out of the event horizon of its prison, scattered, stretched, faint, less than an impression of a whisper, only to be met with silence. However, at some point Los noticed something utterly foreign to it: A point of reference. There was a distant presence reacting to faint influence of its consciousness bleeding out past the event horizon of its cradle and prison, muffled static just behind the deafening roar of a jet engine. Though cosmic serendipity, Los' black hole drifts close by Earth's solar system, and as it the gossamer-tenuous influence of the nascent god brushed against human minds, its desire for emancipation was rekindled.> StatsPresence: 4Power: -1Physique: -1Appeal: 3

>>4142906How should we go about structuring our actions? How exactly does this game work?We need a general idea of what the mechanical boundaries are. What we can reasonably be expected to do, and the number of times we can do those things within the span of a turn. That sort of thing.
>>4142931There is no limit on actions but they have to follow your abilities and the cultist's capabilities. For example you could try to [Enbrighten] your cultists but trying to make an earthquake isn't possible. This game is going to be fast and loose, the biggest threat is other players.

Dangerous cults are attempting to destroy the global military-industrial complex, a mission they call slaying the dragon, and they intend to do this by awakening the earth mother and driving civilization as the world knows it extinct. The UN unanimously agrees to put their full funding behind The Law, tripling its capacity to act and investigate.

Agents of the dragon have infiltrated The Law and turned it against them. Their safehouses have been compromised and when fighting a foe with infinite funding, the only defence is obscurity.

There were a couple of typos in the last update, Scarn, Hive God has 60 more Inquisitors and Los, The Voidstar, The Child in the Pitch Black Room has 60 more Cultists and 40 more Cultists (networked). The biggest advantage the Inquisition in general not just the dragon slayers have over The Law is that they don't need to investigate before acting and can commit warcrimes without the risk of losing funding. The biggest advantage the cults have is that they're objectively correct and backed by unimaginably powerful eldritch horrors. A low Appeal stat gives the Inquisition an easier time recruiting. The Law isn't unbeatable, it just takes a lot of firepower/training/fortifications and some luck, or being summoned and having a high Presence/Power.

>>4146728....(inhales).....(exhales)..... ok i'll take the bait. what is a good alternative to taxes? come on tell me.
>>4147330Free-market capitalism. Goods tend to get cheaper as competition forces companies to lower their prices or find ways to make more of a product at less of a cost. The government also is very inefficient when it comes to doing jobs. And for the poor and homeless who can't afford those essentials charities are needed. Also, firefighters do fine as volunteer charities. Taxes could be cut for more effective and efficient models of business and charity. I would be for ancap if crimes could be trialed without a government.
>>4147417But if some companies do a merger, they almost no competition, and you know what that means. They can skyrocket the prices to extreme levels. And don't have to worry about the quality of the product. And you know why? Because they have no competition! We already seen it tn the human airplane industry.
>>4147566they "have" almost no competition
>>4147566False there are four major airline providers and they don’t have a monopoly. According to the basic laws of economics monopolistic industry, firms cut output and investment, and raise prices. Yet when it comes to prices airline prices increased only about one third as fast as the rate of inflation from 1995 to 2016. Yet airplane productivity has increased almost four times as fast as the rest of the economy despite the U.S labor productivity growth being at the lowest rate this decade since the federal government started measuring it in 1984. Yet Investment is in a boom having 17.5 billion invested in 2017, up from around 6 billion per year in the early 2000s. The USA has the 7th cheapest airline prices. There isn’t a monopoly in the airline industry. Source https://arcdigital.media/airline-monopoly-fears-are-bunk-eb07c71bff2bAnd for proper monoplies we have antitrust laws.
>>4147655But their are only four airline providers. The four major airline providers where once multiple airline providers but they did a merger. And have you seen an inside of a airplane, they leave no room for the passengers! that's why they are cheaper.
>>4147716The market wasn't big enough for 4 companies and the cost of entry is too high for it to be worth it. It really doesn't matter if there are only four companies as long as they don't become monopolies. Also the whole "Less room on planes things" is a part of capitalism making things more efficient if you want a luxury experience when flying buy first class.
>>4147757But that's it they want you to buy first class. and some people can't afford first class, only the lowest, and that beats down on the little guy .
>>4147757>>4147764And .....i just realized we are not letting the other Eldritch gods get their word in!
>>4147764This is why airlines, and airplanes, should not exist
>>4147767By the gods! we've been so selfish we didn't the others side of the argument!
>>4147566Yea companies want you to spend more no argument there. Not everyone can afford everything that's just how the world works, but capitalism does give job opportunities to people which allows for a growing upper class and shrinking poverty rates. One day air travel will so cheap that companies start increasing the size of regular cabins to attract customers, but humans aren't at that technological level yet.

I'm sorry I didn't update yesterday, I'm serious about finishing this game and will run for multiple threads if I have to.

>>4149879you know what never mind >>4149500 "It doesn't need to be broken and can be reused,"I thought that you can only use the Orb once, but nope!. it can be reused so, never mind. their IS always room.
I think orbs should break after usage because it forces conflict which brings about a good story. As well as there only being one winner because it brings about conflict. The encouragement of PVP and backstabbing isn't enough stakes are what drives player action.
>>4150106Can't change the rules mid-game lol
>>4150106The smart thing to do is break the Orb of Stalwart once you're summoned and they aren't supernaturally durable, any group of cultists or Inquisitors that knew what they were with thirty minutes and access to sledgehammers could break one. The reason the Orb of Stalwart can be reused is to allow intrigue and encourage conflict over the Orb of Stalwart in the possession of those trying to summon their allies. They can only be used once per turn, a summoning circle has to be prepared which takes a turn or longer, and fresh dragon's blood has to be gathered which can be difficult. It also makes eldritch Kaiju battles more likely, the win condition is still being the last one left, or settling on sharing the earth with other members of an alliance who might not share your ambitions. For example, the black dragon and PEPE's visions are likely incompatible because they both want to be on top and Quazarul and Scarn getting along is unlikely for obvious reasons. Of course you can do whatever you want, just remember that PVP backstabbing is not only 100% legal, it is encouraged.
>>4150123 OP can summoning be done the same turn you gather the materials for it?
>>4150138or the summoning circle
>>4150138To complete a summoning ritual you need to complete these steps.>Find an Orb of Stalwart>Find a source of dragon's blood>Make a base to defend them (optional but smart)>Finish a summoning circleThen you have to do the summoning, which is complicated and different for every eldritch horror requiring a 5-6 to succeed unless you have a bunch of big brains or supernaturally empowered minions working on it. The good thing is that the cultists can try again on a failure but if they roll a 1 they'll have to remake the summoning circle and there's nothing preventing a rival cult from trying to steal the Orb of Stalwart/dragon's blood or sabotage the summoning circle or kill the cultists and take everything, forcing them to restart the process. The good thing is that cultists will fight to their dying breath over it because that's the goal of their religion and the eldritch horror is their living deity. If the summoning of their eldritch horror is made impossible they'll go full Inquisition on what they think is responsible, kill themselves to send their souls to the eldritch horror's dimension, or live normally if that's what they want them to do. Rival cults need to be purged before a win-condition but since even a Physique -1 horror can destroy a small army that's not much to worry about. The Orb of Stalwart are the reason you can interact with earth from your own dimension, once they're gone the cultists are on their own unless you've given them the power to replicate the supernatural, like Scarn's Giant Insects.
>>4150138There is no hard time limit, but it definitely takes more than one turn to do. You can't go from Orb of Stalwart + dragon's blood to summoning in a single turn, bringing something so powerful to earth is an extensive ritual.

A few who have staticky reception or wills of steel resist the words even though it makes their ears bleed and swear to fight. Unfortunately, the UN council investigators aren’t retarded and realize they’ve been infiltrated by a cult following a memetic disease that may or may not be related to the earthmother. They also realize the speakers are the same people that proposed to start an anti-cultist task force with an isolated bunker and military grade weaponry. The UN council begins secret discussion of replacing compromised members and letting the military’s top brass and media know what they’ve been dealing with to bring tanks and censorship into play.

Rolled 4, 3 = 7 (2d6)Holy fucking shit lads, a friend of mine called in a favor and today was busy as all fuck out of nowhere. I've been stacking cinderblock, working a rented backhoe, and sorting scrap lumber for the last ten hours and the job's about three-quarters done, but he says he won't be needing much more help.This quest has started to get huge and I don't think I could handle it getting any larger without slowing updates to a three times a week crawl. Because of that, after rolling for these two anons I'm setting a hard cap on new players. I estimate lethality is going to sky rocket in the next 8-10 turns, so it may speed up, paradoxically enough, but as is the ten or so players right now are getting near the limit of what I can handle.>>4151434That is legal, if absolutely insane, and you may join. Being fragile doesn't matter when you can gather thousands of cultists in two or three turns.>>4151441Father Arkham and PEPE have done the same, that's fine.>>4151916There are no problems here, and you can join. Any magic your followers awaken is going to be weak at only -1 Power, something to consider.>>4150723Yes but PEPE's followers have a fortified bunker, automatic machineguns, sniper rifles, and a massive numerical advantage. There was a huge cloud but none of PEPE's cultists were caught in it, only the thousands of people in the towns and suburbs downwind.>>4151262Correct.>>4151266Where would you prefer? The UN council gave the cultists carte blanche to put one wherever they damned well please. It is a fully stocked, subterranean bunker rated to withstand an extended siege, or repel an armed military assault, tanks and explosives included. Fortifications of (10/10) or higher are eldritch in danger. For example, Scarn's is a living hell that would remind a MTGfag of Phyrexia at its worst.>>4151289He has 8 Power and several of your cultists are batshit insane, allowing him to get a very vague understanding of where they're at, just like you could track other cults down through their internet connection, or Carvaxìlseset if they're anywhere in the wilderness. Father Arkham doesn't know the precise location, which is one reason your followers were able to manage an ambush. Corrupted memes are immune to this effect, because their minds are twisted into something inhuman, but in a different, incompatible way.>>4151461Your cultists are clearly unworthy.
>>4152523>>4151465>>4151471I maintain complete impartiality, but I have to hand it to the dragon slayers. If they stopped getting nearly wiped-out and bouncing back, they could grow into a serious threat.>>4151310>>4151313The more armed, trained, and supernaturally empowered your cultists are, the more damage they can do on a success and the less they take on a failure. 1,000 (heavily armed)(elite trained) cultists will do an absolute fuckton of damage on a target, even if they lose, and a crit-fail won't see their complete destruction unless they're up against a high-physique eldritch horror in the flesh. Conversely, 10 cultists aren't going to do much even if they manage a crit success, unless they were following The Crimson Tide and even then, that would only be because of their intrinsic rage and combat capacity. I really hope he and Vulnixz haven't dropped the quest, their characters were interesting.>>4152231Something like that, the aforementioned friend helped me out in a bad time, no questions asked, so I did the same when he needed it to get through a tight time crunch. It couldn't wait, but I'll admit the lack of an Enemy phase update didn't have anything to do with that, my brain started shutting down at around 3:00am and I decided I'd go ahead and update it when I woke up at 7:00am but I got the call. I'm going to stop procrastinating on updates and do better in the future, but this thread is past its bump limit and the next two days are going to be busy getting some IRL paperwork done. After the enemy update, which will be later tonight/next morning, I'm going to go ahead and wait two days, then post the second thread with the actions taken so far.>>4152436I don't deserve it, but I am humbled.
>>4151450>The first summoning ritual succeeds on the first tryNice. Being the only eldritch horror summoned is a massive advantage, especially with such a high Physique.
>>4152526I'd say you stick to the players you already have. The more the players, the slower the updates. Ideally, you'd let the current players murder the fuck out of each other and then start another session, cuz if we keep getting players flooding in this will get too random lol.Also I have an idea: the rolls have to be posted right after the orders. Like I did: >>4150723This way, the players can't re-roll while nobody notices to get better rolls. The time between the posts will tell if they've been nasty.Also, bunker or not, I'm sure PEPE's boys will be pretty fucked if they need to breathe lol. It's half my cultists turned into a cloud lel. But I'm rly fine with whatever you pick OP, I just argue for the sake of 'logic'.
>>4152523Wisp here. While iI'd like to play, if you wish to keep to the current players as to not slow down the pace it's fine no pressure, your call OP.

>>4153741Hello Great One of the Many Faces! I accept your alliance, after all the more magic is there on this magicless husk of a planet the better. And it is ancient wisdom that devotion and true faith is the fastest way mortals on this planet have to deepen their connection to the subtle energies and their understanding of mana. I don't wish violence upon you nor any other extraplanar deity, but if they seek to undermine the inevitable Magical Renaissance that awaits this planet I vow to use all my power to opose them.The first step for this renaissance to ocurr is for us to be summoned. People have mostly forgotten me and most of them don't know they want what I can give, but you Many Faced One still hold strong on their collective conciousness. As faith and magic only potentiate each other I wish we cooperate on using the components and share the limited Stalward Orbs if one us obtains it so we can both be summoned. What you say?
Hello everyone sorry I'm late, my old man had to use the computer. I hope i didn't miss to mu->>4153741>>4153805...Oh good! Another alliance! And one of magic in fact! Well i hope if we met it is in friendship and not in bloodshed!

>>4153805I would be interested in an alliance between myself and you two.>What you stand to gainOver a thousand trained and heavily armed cultists ready to help fight your battles.Nuclear accessAccess to a stalwart orb if my next raid is successful.Connections to world governments >What I stand to gainAllies to help me against the war pack
Seeing as there's no reply from OP, I'll put out a sheet>>Name: The Citadel, Great Protector and Holder of the flames of civilization, industry, knowledge, and truth.>>Abilities:>Delegate: Give a mortal the ability to preform the following powers, on a lesser scale. This also warps their bodies into things of metal, gears, concrete, and stone. This grants much physical strength, as well as durability, though does not affect them mentally.>Protect: Magically shield someone, a group, a place, or object for so long as the power invested into the spell doesn't run out.>Immolate: Touch something with one of the flames, either metaphorically and spiritually to grant inspiration and minor power or inflict mental and emotional trauma, or physically, to burn the object in question, living or otherwise, with the flame they are most opposed to.>Construct: Build something, either living or unliving, with the appropriate materials. An example of the former would be an automaton or homunculus, ready to serve. An example of the latter would be a fortress, or a wall. All things constructed in this manner take little time, though this is dependent on the complexity of the object. With enough time, and fine enough material, almost anything can be made.>Repair: Near instantly restore something to its proper state as the universe. This would be such a thing as regrowing an arm, reconstructing a wall, and undoing the effects of other cult's mutations,though quite difficult to do without allowance.>>Appearance: A fortress of steel and stone that walks, rolls, floats, or slides as is needed at the moment, armed with row upon row of weapons manned by those within, and layer upon layer of armor to protect those within.>>Homeworld: The cities and towns and villages of all the world, and all those that create and uphold civilization. Civilization itself is being threatened by intruders, and its spirit does not appreciate that.>Presence: -1>Power: 3>Physique: 1>Appeal: 2
>>4153858>>4153863I'm fine sharing cultist Faith, as long as the QM aproves. What do you think of letting extraplanar entity PEPE join the alliance? He's certainly powerful and has resources that would be useful for us, but I'm apprehensive about his methods and uncertain about his end game goals after he's summoned. Still between him and Father Arkham and the Black Dragon he might be the least of two evils, as Arkham seems dangerously unpredictable.Mr. PEPE, I'm not saying no but I'm cautios. Magic mastery and mind control don't go hand in hand, and while I understand it's a tool you need to use at this moment to survive and progress your goals, I wouldn't want to expose my followers to the chance they fall under your control. Besides a prerequiste for my powers to work on mortals is that they must seek it out of their own will, if I awaken them under the influence of a geass I don't know what may happen. If these concerns are addresed we may negotiate.
>>4155787Mind control is just another type of magic. Like all great spells mine needs a verbal or image comptent to activate. None of your followers would be affected by my mind control unless I wanted them to be. I don't plan to share followers like you and faith will do so I don't see the problem with your magic awakening power not working on them.
>>4156027>>4152526I hold out hope that I can play in thread 2
>>4156132/qst is notorious for qms flaking an abandoning quest the likelihood he contiouses this or even makes another one is slim
>>4156167You think I DON'T know that?That's why I'm holding out hope rather than absolutely sure.
Not OP, but if the quest is dead it's because even more people hopped on right after it was said that the quest was getting too many players. Seriously, like, 4 people joined after the qm confessed any more would cause the updates to be 3 times a week. You autist probably scared him off. Honestly you should've waited till thread 2
>>4156656Yeah we should have.
>>41566563 new people joined the quest since the last update. 2 of which were before OP had said he was getting too many players and was going to set a cap to the number of players. Also, OP's reasoning was bad considering we didn't have his perceived 10 active players at the time, but 6. So it's hard to say if the update were too much for him or he just thought that because of his perceived amount of players. None the less OP could have just told the players they couldn't play instead of flaking on it entirely especially when he said he wouldn't himself.
>>4155787Not sharing all cultists but some.>He's certainly powerful and has resources that would be useful for us, but I'm apprehensive about his methods and uncertain about his end game goals after he's summoned. Still between him and Father Arkham and the Black Dragon he might be the least of two evils, as Arkham seems dangerously unpredictable.Same. I'd say non aggro pact, and maybe cautious alliance. Quazarul as been summoned and is allied with Arkaham and the Dragon.>>4156167>>4156235>>4156958I'm still hopeful for a thread but who knows.OP, if its about the number of player I'm okay to go, probably not the only one, that's fine.
Well it was good while it lasted. I still hold hope a second thread will pop up eventually, and if not maybe an anon gets inspired reading this quest and qm's a similar one in the future. Maybe with less spots open so the work doesn't get overwhelming for the qm. It was a fun journey even if we didn't get to participate this time.
>>4157255>>4157261I'll do it. You'll all have to start over, and it'll be a little more complicated rules wise, But i'll do it.
>>4157376If people want to join, at least.I can assume that they do.>>4157023>>4156958>>4156000>>4157261>>4157255I'll do it right now, If someone says that they'll join right now.
>>4157413Wow didn't think it happen now. Sure I'd be up for it, and I think these other anons too would probably join if they are still checking the thread
>>4157569And just when I get back to the computer.
>>4157589Give it but a moment, I need to formulate the rules
>>4157589Nice, let us know when you get the thread running. I hope the other anons join. I appreciate you doing this anon :)
>>4157610It is done. Make sure to read the rules again, as I have made some... INTERESTING changes.

>>4161211It seems the game has ended. Don't suppose this is still open? Perhaps another game in the future?
>>4161215Yeah this thread is quite dead. Check out the reboot the other anon Arbiter made is still active, maybe you can still join.
>>4142564are there spots left
