>>5091432>>5091436>>5091456Your first memory is that of the cold tundra wind, you felt it down your throat as you gasped your first breath. You don't know who left you in an icy lake when you were just an egg, what you do know is that the kobolds that fished you out and lost tail and fingers gathering kindling to warm you are your family. When they saw your golden scales for the first time they rejoiced and showered you with little trinkets, food and even some gold pieces. They patiently waited for you to spit a fire that would warm their bodies and souls but nothing but smoke came out of your mouth. Even then they did not shun you, and in time you learned to produce sparks, not from your mouth but with a twist of a wrist.You are now finally one month old and Snuv, the oldest of the 22 surviving kobolds comes to you with a worried look on his face"Oh great sun that has landed, the icy winds are bad as the day we found you, your food and twigs are almost consumed. We fear we might not be able to sustain your fire alone, for we be five times less than we were before."

You stare in awe as the hulking figure keeps swinging, hitting nothing but air with its massive arms until your duplicate explodes into purplish flames, startled, the white figure falls down the mountainside cracking its neck in the descent. Proud of your achievement you start sizing up the great meal to realise it's simply too big to haul with your small wings. You gorge yourself in its meat and take what you can back to your family.Your arrival is celebrated, the kobolds waste no part of your haul, they take the fur hide to make coats, they sharpen the bones into javelins and cut up the meat into many rations, eating only a pittance and hoarding the rest for you to eat later.

>>5091815>>5091826>>5091843Your family has told you that there is little of interest around you, only caves much worse than this one, some with other kobolds others with nasty things. On the east following the mountain range are some dwarves to avoid, they say, and to the west there is a human town made-up of ten villages around some ponds and lakes. To the south there's a long stretch of frozen plains difficult to traverse during winters like this one, full of wild hunter humans.

The trees become more numerous becoming a proper forest, there still high in the sky you spot some tents. As you investigate you can make out three distinct groups of wild humans. The bonies as you call them, are quite larger than the others, completely hairless and heavily adorned with bones. The hairy, have long hairs of gold and red and are always filled with hides and furs, they seem to fear the bonies. And the shorties, their tents are the sturdiest and they seem to spend all their time gathering plants and fishing instead of hunting deer like the other two. You also spot a rare cave within the forest that seems like a good place to rest, as you fly down to it, small bluish green creatures spew from the cave and start throwing things that explode in the trees freezing then, an arrow also fly in your direction taking two scales with it. >Fight the pests with tooth and claw>Use the Arcane to deal with them (open to suggestions) >Flee back home>OtherRoll 2d20 best out of 3

>>5092016>>5092054>>509208114, 10You try to communicate with the hostile little creatures, instinctively you conjure crude illusions of shapes like their own to insinuate that you could gain something from each other, all the while you fly evading their attacks. Most of the goblins stop after seeing your magics, but two pesky ones keep throwing the freezing bomb, one nearly freezes your wings leaving a bad burn.Angry at those pests you grab the Arcane in your hands as a an almost solid force ad twist it with the intention of producing a great big fire ball, instead you shoot sparks in their direction that seem harmless at first but then react with their bombs, causing them to explode and freeze in place.

>>5092188>>5092208>>5092230The goblins lead you into their cave, you see countless of them frozen within the walls, the result of failed experiments you wonder or maybe infighting.. You feel uncomfortable as they laugh and speak in their strange language pointing at you and swinging their spiked clubs, you fear they might be leading you into an ambush, when you finally arrive at a large chamber. There you can see the goblins mining out some crystals from the walls and putting them in flasks for throwing, a great big furnace sits in the center made of dark stone, it's square and polished craftsmanship stands out from the crude shacks that surround it. There one of the goblins, the leader you think, for many show him more hostility than respect, draws shapes in the dirt in an attempt to communicate with you. From what you can gather, they are willing to trade frost bombs for lessons in conjuring sparks. >Try to teach the goblins how to sparks in exchange for frost bombs>Study their defenses and leave>Surprise attack the leader>Other
>>5092268>Try to teach the goblins how to sparks in exchange for frost bombs
>>5092302>>5092319You shake your head in agreement, the goblin leader shouts some gibberish and most of the tribe, about thirty or so goblins, look at you attentively. You twist your wrist and turn your clawed fingers producing small sparks, you repeat the motion ever so slowly so they can follow along. Roll 4d20 best out of 3

This memory gives you a greater understanding of the Arcane forces in the air, your sparks start to multiply and then take form as a continuous flame in your hand. Learned firebolt spell The goblins in awe of your flames start practicing like crazy, two produce pitiful sparks but another one produces clear white hot sparks. It immediately uses its new found power to attack the goblin leader and suddenly a bunch of them are fighting. >Flee with some frost bombs >Fight alongside the leader>Fight alongside the spark maker>Other Roll 2d20 best out of 3

>>5092461>Fight alongside the spark maker>>5092465These goblins seem like loose cannons and they'd probably end up revolting against us like they're doing to their current leader. I think we should ally with the spark maker for now, take note of their defenses, and come back to defeat their remainder. We only need a few slaves to mine the crystals for our 'bolds anyways.Also keep in mind if they're under new management our old deal with them might not be acknowledged, or they might just try to capture us.

>>5092465>>5092471>>509248117, 13You have a hard time distinguishing who is siding with the spark maker and the goblin leader so you decide to focus on the goblin leader. Your claws turn ablaze as you shoot fire bolt after fire bolt, melting the leader's face and killing one of his bodyguards. After a confusion of frost explosions, flames and sparks it is clear that the sparkmaker has the advantage, some goblins run for their lives while others fall in line, offering daggers, earrings and other trinkets as tribute to the new leader. You turn to the new leader sparkmaker, with a look of pride that only a gold dragon could muster. With a nervous look the sparkmaker turns to the remaining 18 goblins and signals them to bring you a great large bag of frost bombs, so many you question yourself if you can carry them all the way up the mountain. With the exchange made you decide to leave the cave. When you start flying with the heavy bag you feel pain all over especially on your burned wing. You decide to bury most of the bombs next to a noticible rock and fly back with only a couple of them. When you arrive at your cave your family surrounds you with horror in their faces as they look at each wound in your body. They start to speak over each other"O great sun.. " "Golden one, what have they done to you!" "Magnificent flame that has landed. You're missing some scales!!" "Please tell us who did this!" "You mustn't leave until you are healed my sun of gold" "Great one please takes us with us, let us protect your glorious golden scales" Desperate to tell them your tale and to have them calm down and appreciate your bounty, you agree to only go out accompanied until you fully recover from your wounds.With your family massaging your aching body you fall into a deep sleep and only awake two days later.

With a twist of the wing you dramatically sit in the embers and start producing a small flame on the palms of your clawed hands. You see them live up regaining some of their mobility. "Today you will join me under the rays of the sun, today we shall bring warmth back into our home" With that said you lead your family down the mountain in the direction of the closest trees, after they have filled their hands with kindling you smell a storm approaching. >Hurry back to your home>Try to though it out behind the trees>Look for shelter close by>OtherRoll 2d20 best of 3

Most of the kobolds make it in time but some of the older and tailless kobolds lag behind, suffering the progressively stronger wind.

You desperately grasp at the Arcane trying to hold something more solid than fire, to shield you from the brutal wind. When you try to hear the stone beneath all the snow but you get distracted by the panicked screams of your family. "Come to me NOW!" you shout They all run close to your chest as you spread your wings to shield them from the violent storm. You anchor yourself to the ground, every time the wind hits you feel a pounding pain in the claws of your feet, you try to focus on the stone they are grabbing all the while you move your fingers, and start reciting the words Alar Potrac Petrac Arun.. you feel your wounded wing lower its guard for a moment, and hear a thud in the snow, you ignore it as you do anything but the surrounding Arcane energy, suddenly you start hearing the stone crack and shift with it the cold wind disipades. You open your eyes and see stones piercing the snow and shrouding you from the wind like a rough stone egg, and then you feel a pain greater than any freezing wind, you see Rilbic's body twisted and limp on the snow. The others are reservedly crying around him, as if they're at the same time used to seeing this kind of thing but never ready for it.. You remember how Rilbic would always make you feel better when you saw yourself as useless for not being able to breathe flames, he would always say "When there's a cave in you just dig another path, that's life, you might not breath fire but you still warm our spirits oh shining sun that has landed."You let out a deep gotheral sound "Curse the goblins that have wounded me, curse this mountain, curse these weak wings.." "Stop!" Snuv shouts, backed by the other survivors. "You mustn't curse yourself oh child of fire, if you want to curse anyone you will have a long list. We live in this frozen hell because we were driven and prosecuted everywhere we went.. But I have no one to curse really, in the most horrible cold we found you, our fire, our pride and joy“ filled with tears, you await the passing of the storm in silence. After the winds have stopped you make an opening in the stone wall, and you all go back to the cave carrying Rilbic. A funeral is prepared, Rilbic is buried in the deepest part of the cave so the cold can't hurt him anymore and everyone shares stories of his life.. You sleep next to the fire, with your body warm but your soul cold.

At times the corridor gets so straight you find yourself folding your wings in an uncomfortable position. You quickly find yourselves in a three way fork, you have the best fighters armed with thick yeti hides and strong yeti bone spears to protect the back and the front of the group while all of you explore one path at a time. After the maze like corridors you find two chambers, one small and one very large with good ventilation, some small fissures in the sealing let in some sunlight. You are about to settle in when you hear a shouting from the back of the group -Sssp Spiders!!!

>>5093887>>5093891>>5093901>>50939081, 5, 20, 17As soon as you see the spiders you start shooting fire bolts, you miss all of them and end up causing a cave-in, separating the front group from the back group. Scared you would cause more cave-ins, you decide to hold off on using more fire. Instead you climb the passages and start biting and scratching the largest spider you find, its armor is hard as rocks, but its eyes are soft, you scratch at them until the cursed thing stops twitching. You see your group holding their own, using their numbers to flank them, finding spots between the armor plates to pierce with their spears. As you finish killing your second for you hear screams from the other side, nervous you run through the maze-like corridors trying to find a way to the other group. You arrive to find several kobolds with minor injuries and an impressive pile of dead spiders. On top of them you see Frec, Frid and Fran, three young sisters that had hardly hunted in the past, the other kobolds tell you how the three of them moved as a single creature, killing most of the spiders one by one. You lead the back group to the front group and together you thoroughly search each crevice of the cavern for more spiders, killing the few you stumble upon. You also find two nests of spider eggs, you collect the eggs and all of the webbing at your family's request. Confident that the cavern is secure, everyone starts to unpack. You sit by the fire with the wounded kobolds boiling the spider eggs to add to your supplies, while the rest of the family is busy recovering spider meat to store in the coldhole with the rest of the rations and repurpose the debris from the cave-in you caused to block the entrance to the cave for the night.Tired from a long day, you all go to sleep huddled up in the smallest chamber.

>>5094011>>5094029>>5094030>>5094065>>5094189Wanting your family to be safe you propose they should craft armor and weapons out of the spiders. Hoboc the kobold responsible for the yeti coats oversees the project, he starts by separating the family in many small teams each responsible for a small part of the process, you are made responsible for cutting and drilling holes in the plates, for you are the only one who can. The other teams are responsible for things like extracting the plates, cleaning the plates, and binding the plates together.After half a day you complete the first sets of armor. Wanting a rest from digging at the plates with your claws, you suggest that they should now go train with Frec, Frid and Fran for they have proven themselves great warriors in the last bout. As you keep crafting and training for the next couple of days you see the family divide itself into three groups, the 7 fighters that spend all day training, including the three sisters. The 11 crafters that craft armor in the morning, discuss cavern improvements all through lunch and then go back to crafting again, and the rest that seem content either way. By the end of the fourth day, 7 of your tribe seem ready to face danger while the rest seem at least more prepared in case of an emergency. You were able to produce 5 spider plate armor layered with yeti hide and fur for the sisters and two fighters, and simple spider plate armor for the other 16 kobolds. You also crafted 8 shields, 4 spears with yeti bone shafts and 30 spear heads missing shafts, Jhacs was having so much fun carving them that he ended up making more than we needed.The next day with the food not looking like it will last more than a week and with very little kindling you decide to go>Gather wood for shafts and kindling >Hunting >Search the nearby caves for mushrooms to bring home and build a farm>OtherAccompanied by>The whole family >The 7 fighters >A single lucky kobold that gets to ride on your back>No one, go aloneRoll 1d20 best of 3

There you chew off the base of a thin tree and you all haul it back to the cave along with some kindling. With still some daylight in the day you have the seven pick one amongst them to go with you check some of the nearby caves for mushrooms or allies. They play javelin, stone, scale and Pocpuc is declared the winner, the others thought he would pick stone being a master of the sling himself but he predicted this and chose instead scale every turn. Pocpuc cries tears of joy while the others go back inside the cave. The two of you fly to the nearby caves starting with the one with the large entrance you saw before, inside you find quite a bit of palish green moss growing on the floor and the walls, you take some of it before the two of you flee, from a huge furry four legged creature, larger than even the yeti. You fly for quite a bit while Pocpuc spots caves and crevices with his marksman's eyes, you only find unremarkable shallow caves. With the day nearly at an end Pocpuc insists you let him explore a crevice that is too narrow for you to pass. You hesitantly allow him to go after he promises to return immediately if sees any sign of trouble. After a bit of time passes he returns with his arms overflowing with small brown mushrooms and a great big grin on his face. You come home and celebrate your find with your family, they immediately start spreading the mushrooms and the moss around the cave to see in which spot they grow better. After a long day of flying you rest your wings by the fire as you hear Pocpuc recounting the adventure the two of you had, over and over again, it lulls you into a deep and comforting sleep.

With the first woods gathered the 11 crafters work tirelessly building a hauling sled that can be pulled using some rawhide rope made with hide scraps, while the remaining kobolds keep going back and forth between the cave and the trees filling their hands and backpacks with kindling. With an expertly crafted sled you are able to haul much more wood with half the effort, quickly satisfying your kindling needs for the rest of the winter. As the days grow colder you keep gathering wood to have a nice surplus to use for other things other than fires during great cold, you are accompanied by less and less of your kin, until one day you start to single-handedly haul smaller trees and branches as you feel your body grow stronger. On one of these days you stumble into a group of six shorties, they quickly lower their axes and speak gibberish at you with wonder in their eyes. You speak back at them properly, asking them what they are doing there, one of them finally starts to make a bit of sense with a mix of hand gestures and loose words in a strange accent"We friendly no harm no harm" she says as she raises her gloved palms in your direction "Not know territory of dragon" she says with a sorry look in her face>Have them help you haul wood>Inquire how they survive the great cold with no cave>Ask how they traveled so far from their huts with their short leg>Other

As you see them visibly shiver from the cold you produce a hot flame atop your clawed fingers, with the intention of warming them while simultaneously intimidating them.With the sun low you decide to give them a final prideful glare and hurry home with the sled, fearing that your family might come looking for you in the freezing wind because of your lateness.You explain the shorties hut design word for word to the crafters, recreating the drawing the best you can to better explain it. They excitedly start debating the details of how they could build a small version of the hut inside the large chamber in order to test the design and even improve it, they are confident they have enough wood for a small one.

You go gather some of the musk oxen horns to craft your gift, you carve the largest of the horns by heating the point of your claw, you depict some of your best memories with Rilbic, some of the older kobolds spot you and they too start doing memorial pieces, to those they dearly miss this day. After you finish your piece you go help others finish their gifts when they need a bit of fire or a strong claw.At the end of the day you start smelling the great feast that is being prepared, you thankfully have enough supplies to splurge a little on this special day. The family all gathers in the large chamber after hiding their gifts in the crevices of the cave, you all start to enjoy the feast that is composed of several new dishes like moss and mushroom soup, skewers of mushroom, yeti and oxen meat, smoked oxen with fresh moss and meat filled mushrooms, their a special treat, you never know if you will get the spider, the yeti or the oxen filling. As you finish eating and drinking freshly melted snow, one by one your family members go to get their gifts to present them, some like you and elders offer gifts for everyone to enjoy, like the feast, others offer something to a special someone in their heart. You see all kinds of cool gifts, some made carvings in their friends armor, others crafted tools like pickaxes, carpentry tools or cooking knives, the other 4 fighters made some impressive looking spider head helmets to offer the three sisters for all their hard work. But none received as many gifts as you did, a portrait carved in a wood plank, several tasty treats and best of all a present designed by Hoboc, and worked in by the whole family, a harness made with buckles to perfectly fit you with several bags, so you don't have to carry everything by hand. You all give thanks to each other and finish the day by picking a crevence close to the entrance to mount your bone carvings of those that will always warm your hearts.

>>5095825>Build the shorties style hut
A little food for thought for everybody voting to build the Huts how exactly are we going to build them if we don't first make tools
>>5095825>Build Shorties style hutFeasibly all we'd need is some strong saplings and hides (which we seem to have in spades) to make them. And the huts would allow for better conversion of heat and better use of tinder, making the kobolds more self sufficient and less reliant on us. And when there less reliant on us we can do more cool dragon things, like study magic or find more kobolds.
When we do eventually have time to really master pyromancy, I want to work on Geomancy next.Being able to create stone structures and manipulate earth to find ore would be invaluable. It would also allow us to create a proper lair so we can begin amassing a proper horde.I have an idea concerning the theme of our lair and its surrounding Kobold settlement.I say we move to the tallest mountain in this region and start creating a settlement in its interior.With proficiency in flame and stone magic, it shouldn't be hard to locate a geothermal reservoir and use it to keep the place heated.

Dighir, an older kobold oversees the construction of such a hut, she and Rilbic used to organize all the construction of warrens back when they were young, back when they had not been driven to the mountains. After Dighir devises a plan for the construction, the kobolds get to work crafting only the essential tools for the hut such as some hammers, wooden pegs, saws, shovels and pickaxe, all out of spider plates, oxen bones and wood. You start by digging holes to bury the wooden pillars that will support the whole structure, and then you build a furnace of stone in the center with some gaps, designed in such a way that smoke escapes to the rest of the floor but not the fire, "We don't want to be that warm!" Dighir jests. After a week of work the hut is nearly complete, the only thing missing is what the shorties used to isolate the roof's wooden tiles and the walls. Dighir suggested using hides but we have none left after the sewing of coats, rope and the two rugs.. Even if a bit cramped you all sleep much better inside the hut, or the cave inside the cave as some haven taken to calling it.

After that's done you collectively work to make those areas more comfortable and efficient for their designated purposes, you craft tables and stools so the crafters and the cooks don't have to do everything on the floor. Produce hanging racks so tools are organised instead of piled up everywhere and you make note and craft tools that you are in need of from sewing needles to training weapons. After a week the areas are well established and organically start to develop. The hut serves as a kitchen during the day seeing it is the best place to cook using the great central oven. Close to the hut several tables and stools are assembled to serve as a messhall so family meals can be had. A corner of the small chamber is reserved for storage and a deep hole with carved stairs and a cellar-like door is dug to store meats and other supplies at very low temperatures. On the far wall behind the hut is the workshop, composed of several work tables for different crafts like sowing, carving, mining and carpentry. Spark exercises are also moved to a dead-end away from the flammables, where you fill the walls with increasingly detailed depictions on how to produce spark and flame. You wake up, you think larger? It's getting increasingly more difficult to pass through the hut door, it might have to be remade to accommodate you. Some passageways are also becoming a pain to traverse.

Snuv prepares the plans while some more pickaxes are crafted for the task at hand. Ziggzs with no orientation from you or Snuv organises a few of the kobolds to produce candles out of the ox fat and plant fiber you have, these prove invaluable for the mining project, for even a kobold's sight in the dark has its limitations in terms of detail and range. With the pickaxes and candles at hand your family gets to work mining a main pathway for several days, it is expanded to fit not your corrente size but the size you might have at the end of winter. During this endeavor you try to help by using the Arcane arts to mold the stone, but such attempts only bring you memories of that fateful day when the storm took Rilbic away from you.. You know how useful you could be for the family with such power but today you don't feel you have the strength to accomplish such a task. With the passageway complete you feel much better, able to even stretch your wings. You also decide it is time you sleep outside the hut, you don't mind the cold, the cold seems more distant to you everyday, it's the lack of company that gives you pause. You wake up to see that some of the kobolds, namely those most invested in learning the way of the flame like Zigga came to sleep next to you, outside the hut."If we are to learn of fire from the great sun that has landed, we are to set like the sun" she says as the others agree. With a smile on your face and with room to grow you decide you should>Practice the Arcane arts>Go into the great cold in order to hunt for hides>Go into the great cold in order to contact the shorties and establish some deals >Study the growth of the mushrooms and the moss to establish more productive farms >Other

You try to go to the hall of remembrance to see the horne you carved in Rilbic's memory. You almost get stuck in the straight passageways until you focus on the stone, you start clawing at the passageway taking big chunks of it as if they were soft mud and not hard stone.

The stone seems to soften at your touch, you dig it as if it was only snow, as you gain momentum it gets easier and easier to dig your claws hardly touch the wall before it falls at your feet, and then suddenly it instantly hardens hurting your claws.

>>5097487>>5097490>>5097491>>5097505>>5097516>>5097542>>5097621With your meat rations practically extinguished and still about two weeks left of winter you determine the farms should be reviewed and improved to ensure none of you go hungry before the unsealing of the cavern. The moss from what your family as seen only grows on open aired spaces that receive some sunlight, like the cave entrance or better yet the large chamber. It grows quicker on the floor but it can also grow quite well on the walls and on those it isn't a walking hazard, many a kobold have tripped and fell after stepping on the slippery flora. As for the mushrooms they seem to prefer dark, narrow places and grow mostly on the walls. To establish proper farms, good growing spots are marked with mushroom or moss symbols to facilitate specimen transplants from bad growing spots. Tall ladders are also constructed so specimens can be moved from useful areas like the floors and the low walls where the tool racks and carvings are, to the unused high walls. Finally a rule to recover only from the middle of the mushroom and moss blankets is established to ensure the "fields" regenerate in the quickest way possible. You go to sleep surrounded by your students of the flame, you don't know if they are getting used to the cold or if the cold is finally giving way to the heat, what you are sure or is that you sleep easier without hearing their shivering bodies. You wake-up with the sound of a scuffle in the workshop, as you get closer you can hear Dighir and Ziggzs in a shouting match both with a couple of kobolds supporting their side of the conflict. -Whats going on? You ask, to no one in particular. They start talking on top of each other, from what you understand you are almost out of wood except for a pile reserved for kindling. Dighir put aside the last of the wood to craft some cabinets and desks with drawers so crafters don't lose their tools and materials, but Ziggzs and his friends took it during the night to build some support beams to construct a 2nd floor with a murderhole on the cavern entrance. With tensions heating in the cave and the whole family watching you decide to >Side with Dighir because she had the wood first>Side with Ziggzs because his use of the wood was more urgent>Have them share the remaining wood, even though it is not enough for Ziggzs's construction>Go gather wood with just the two of them as an attempt to teach a family first lesson>OtherRoll 2d20 best of 3Merry Christmas!

Dighir knew Rilbic and the other old kobolds, and maybe a festival to remember how everyone knows each other might bring them together, and talking together as a group about future plans might help to minimise this kind of disputes.
>>5098092>>5098107>>5098110>>5098125>>5098227>>5098258>>5098301>>509846714, 18 You try to calm their spirits by acknowledging that it normal for them to become upset after so much time huddled up inside the cave, but nevertheless this is not the way conflicts should be resolved in your family, you propose they both come with you to the greatcold to gather more wood so they can better appreciate one another. With the whole family looking at them they begrudgingly agree. After unsealing the cavern entrance the three of you set off with the sled to the usual tree spot closest to the cave, the heavy snowy winds shakes them to their spine while you are hardly bothered. They bicker the whole way, when you arrive you produce a two person saw from your many bags strapped to your harness and have them cut down a tree together while you work alone. Wanting to get out of the cold wind's embrace as soon as possible they put their differences aside for a moment and start sawing. When it stops snowing and you are all hauling the logs into the sled you pick up a wet beast scent you are unfamiliar with. With little time to react you shout. "Into the Sled NOW!"
As they hastily grab onto the ropes securing the logs you see four ox sized creatures with great maws and feral looks. They chase you hounding with a twisted person like voice. You pull the sled with all the vigor you can muster using your wings to make hard turns in an attempt to lose the beasts, Dighir and Ziggzs hold onto dear life, but the beasts keep gaining on you leap by leap. Dighir releases stone after stone from her sling but they take no effect on the the chasing creatures, that's when Ziggzs takes out from his pouch a rope with three polished stones fixed at each end he swings and swings and then throws it into one of the approaching claws, it tangles on the beasts legs sending it into a tumble, he repeats the feat once more, leaving them fleeing from the remaining two beasts. Faster than you the two of them split up in an attempt to flank you, the largest one stays at your back trying to take a bite of your family while a lean one eyes you waiting for the right moment to pounce. With no more of those weighted roped weapons Ziggzs throws some spiked things but these are completely ineffective against the approaching maws. He could feel the foul creatures warm breath thinking this would be his last moment when he hears Dighir scream "EAT THIS!" swinging the two person saw right into the monstrosities salivating mouth, it keeps chasing with the saw goreshly stuck there, the two of them share a look and then grab each end of the saw and in a unison motion nearly saw the beast's head off, bleeding profusely it falls unmoving.
The remaining creature keeps the chase and then suddenly stops, looking up a cliff. At the cliff you see two piercing blue eyes that betray an intelligence behind them on a great white wolf. You fear for your family's life while you lock eyes with the wolf, noticing it is larger than the beasts, larger than you even. But thankfully it remains at a distance sizing you up until you enter your home. Terrified you might be attacked, you urge that the cave must be sealed at once with all the stone they can carry. After an hour the entrance stands as thick as the cavern walls. When you finally let yourself relax you notice that Dighir and Ziggzs are talking as if they were the best of friends, showing a deep respect for each other. Ziggzs's apologies for taking the wood and Dighir even helps him plan out the 2nd floor with the murderhole. They even propose to the family a no dibs policy where when someone wants to use a resource that is nearly spent, they have to ask permission from the family so no fighting like this happens ever again. You wake up after a few hours unable to sleep, still nervous about the events of yesterday. Seeing that you are up you decide to >Fortify the entrance following Ziggzs's and Dighir's plans>Look for a freshwater source so you don't have to boil the snow that comes down the fissures in the sealing everyday >Construct traps and unconventional weapons following Ziggzs's designs>Checkup on the progress of the followers of the flame (name the sparks trainees have taken upon themselves) >Practice the Arcane arts>Other

You go to the far end of the pathway you previously dug up and place your head against the cold stone, you try to listen for the sound of rushing water, you hear it you think but it seems distant. >Try to mine directly in the direction on the water's sound>Try to listen for other cave complexes and mine in the direction of one of those >Requires the help of some skilled family members to help automate the turning of the snow into freshwater>OtherRoll 2d20 best of 3

You go to the nearest passageway and start clawing at it but get mixed results as before, not wanting to hurt your claws you take your time. You mine deeper and deeper into the earth, you try to not make it too steep so it can be used by your family when you finally find water. Snuv comes to tell you that the family is going to sleep but that the followers of the flame have taken upon themselves to wait for your return at the start of this passageway. You keep digging hoping you are still in the right direction, not having any sound to follow. Finally your claws give way to a chamber, the darkness here is deeper than any moonless night and the silence is defending, the sound of your steps becomes impossible to ignore, they echo in all directions. Learned Soften Earth and Stone spell
After bumping your head into the low ceiling you decide to produce a candle like flame from your claw to illuminate your way. You see an unending chamber perfused with several tunnels that continue into the darkness, as you try to decide which of the several paths you should take a shadow starts wrapping around your head, you flail wildly bumbling your body into several stalagmites trying to breath, the shadow releases you screachhing horribly, you see a small shape atop it stabbing it with a long jagged stone, before you can gather yourself four other silhuetas jump to the walls and into the shadow, they grab and pull it to the ground and proceed to stab it over and over long after the screeching stops. You see five kobolds? They are white as the stone walls, unlike your red brown family and they also seem taller and slimer. They drag the body of the large cloak-like creature to your feet and then speak in a whisper as if they had forgotten how to use their voices. "Dragon of surface.. You must leave, this place is filled with death. We implore you allow us to accompany you, for your protection" After hearing a strange deep growl in the distance you decide to quickly return with these kobolds of the deep. Your family is awoken by the followers of the flame as you quickly seal the passage to impede any strange shadows to follow you. You accompany the five white kobolds to the large chamber, there your family eyes them hesitantly. In the light of the hut you get a better look at them, their eyes seem to change from pupiless white orbs to regular kobold eyes now that they are out of the shadows, they carry only tattered cloaks and long dagger-like sharp stones. Slowly the two groups start to engage with each other, the deep kobolds seem to prefer to communicate using gestures instead of their voices, even so they look to be getting along well, you even hear some of your family members commenting on the handsome and beautiful features of these strangers. After a short rest you prepare yourself to>Ask the deep kobolds about the large cavern complex they come from>Make active efforts to integrate the deep kobolds into your family >Work on constructing a secure gate to the deep cave so you may enter and leave it at will>Return to the deep cave with the deep kobolds as guides in search of more kobolds and water>Other

>>5099133>>5099162>>5099167>>5099228You interrupt your work fortifying the cave entrance to spend the next couple of days building two heavy gates at each end of the passage that leads to the deep cave. They are of hardwood surrounded by stone bricks, you use your newfound stone molding abilities to help the miners dig side passages so you can see and injure uninvited guests at the gates. The pale kobolds keep mostly to themselves and spend their time thoroughly investigating each path and crevice in the cave, some of your family members try their best to share meals and bond with them. During the nights the pale kobolds and the followers of the flame sleep close to you, taking turns to watch the other group, Zigga and Yucks tell you several times that they think the white kobolds are suspicious, they tell of how they move silently in the shadows and how they are always speaking in their weird sign language. When you are not working on the gates you ask the deep kobolds about their cave, especially if there are any bodies of water and if they have seen other kobolds. Only two of the pale ones actually speak with you, the others seem to fill in the gaps with gestures."Water, yes, a long river cuts through many a chamber, but it is dangerous, there dwells the Stoneyes, many kobolds and other creatures adorn the riverside trapped as statues, we drink only from the puddles formed by the dripping of the sealing.We have crossed paths with other of our kin many times but we don't know how many there are. It is dangerous to be alone but more dangerous still to be in large groups for it attracts dangers from the dark."With the gates constructed and a bit more information about the deep caves you decide to>Make active efforts to integrate the deep kobolds into your family >Mount an expedition to the deep cave with the deep kobolds and the some other volunteers to search for kobolds and resources (Roll 3d20 best of 3) >Go back to working on the fortifications to the cavern entrance >Other

As a small feast is prepared they start introducing themselves one by one starting from the oldest Snuv. He tells of how he was born more than half a century ago down south in a warm waren of hundreds of kobolds, how they were driven out of their homes by mischievous gnomes that resented the kobolds for taking some of the leftovers of their many hoarding houses. How the gnomes used Magic in the cruelest of ways by making the earth shake destroying many of their burrows with their youngs still inside and worst of all how they created illusions of dragons to create infighting splitting the waren into several small groups. You hear story after story of the elders of how dwarves pushed them out of abandoned mines for no good reason or of hobgoblins they enslaved them to fight in wars they knew nothing about. Hearing of the strife your people endured hurts you deeply, you always thought the elders came from the same place but now you see only the youngest like Zigga have memories of the mountains and of no other place.
After the elders speak all look undecided on who should go next, you stop to ask the deep kobolds how old they are, somewhat confused they respond "We know little of the surface and of this age, we know we haven't been youngins for a long time and there are no elders in the depths, safe for the cursed mindpiercer" Not wanting to get into what the hell is a mind piercer you ask them to share what they may of their roots and of their hopes for the future."In the depths only the quick and silent survive, we hatched at our kins backs for we would be devoured if we had still nests has the ones you have described. We hide, we drink from the floors, we eat from the walls or what we can grab hold of and we procreate" several of your family members blush at the bluntness of these foreigners.He continues"This place is like a dream, but day after day it is still here, it is becoming more real.. no living shadows or hulking monsters.. And so many kin together with no fear of the most terrible of ends, we could not imagine such reality, such life and all in the presence of the dragon of light.. We could not hope for more before the next winter? whatever that thing is. But we do wonder what if we were never found by the dragon of light, the others.. They know no other life but that of primordial darkness.. "After a long silence the family splits off into smaller groups sharing stories of their adventures, of time old legends and of projects they have for the hoter seasons ahead, you see the deep kobolds finally beginning to be embraced by the rest of your family. At night when as you are falling asleep you swear you hear Zigga flirting with Haz the most talkative of the deep kobolds. Come morning you decide to >Mount an expedition to the deep cave with the deep kobolds and the some other volunteers to search for kobolds and resources (Roll 3d20 best of 4, due to high morale) >Finish the fortifications to the cavern entrance >Construct traps and unconventional weapons following Ziggzs's designs>Checkup on the progress of the followers of the flame >Practice the Arcane arts>OtherEither way roll 3d4 best of 3

>>5099645>>5099746>>5099756You spend about a week helping finish the the fortified cave entrance, it is not as grand as Ziggzs's final plan with three levels, magic lights and traps of his own design but it will hold against those large vicious canines you encountered. It is a double gate made of hardwood, between the two gates is a murderhole from where guards can throw javelins and stones. The 2nd floor also as some arrowslits pointing to the exterior, so you can monitor and even land some hits before unwanted guests even reach the first gate. In the moments where your hulking body was more of an hindrance than help you spent your time teaching sparks and even candle flame to the growing followers of flame, they even count one deep kobold among them now.You see them tirelessly training, always holding a candle carved with the instructions to produce sparks. After the week of intense sparkmaking each of the followers of the flame makes a small demonstration of their progress in front of the whole family. Roll 7d20 best of 3

>>509987613, 6, 19, 17, 16, 16, 14 The demonstration starts with the least experienced sparkmakers, in this case Haz the white scaled, he moves his hands ever so slowly and then strikes them together producing significant sparks. He is followed by Fran, she tries all the known movements and tricks again and again but is unable to produce a spark, the family claps for her anyways knowing she is an important member of the community with or without sparks. Another unlikely sparkmaker is Minhir a shy elder kobold that is normally seen helping Dighir. After that starts the demonstration of the most experienced followers of the flame, you watch a pretend fight between Yucks, Liclic and Boc. Both Yucks and Liclic mix the hot flames with their fighting, shooting even firebolts at each other's shields, while Boc with a snap of a finger lights his whole arms ablaze, he moves the fire from them as a whip and looks completely unfazed by the heat. With the family wildly clapping and whistling in celebration Zigga enters the large chamber and all candle light starts to dim and then goes out. The darkness dissipates as Zigga produces a flaming sphere as big as she is, warming the whole family, the fire always twisting and growing, growing it becomes hotter and the family members sitting in the front take a few steps back. It grows to half your size and stays that way, only you and a few flame followers can take its heat up close. And then as fast as it appeared it turns to air. In awe of the demonstrations a bunch of your family members gather around the followers of the flame, while they distribute candles with sparks instructions, you feel confident the next demonstration will have quite a few more sparkmakers but most of all you feel a newfound understanding of the flame after watching the demonstration. Learning Fire Whip spellLearning Control Flames spellLearning Flaming Sphere spell You sleep and dream of dancing flames.

>>5100045>>5100048>>5100049>>5100058>>51000898, 4, 19 You mount an expedition to the outside world in search of new additions to the family as well as anything that might be useful such as kindling that you might come across. You are accompanied by the fighters, the most experienced flame followers and the five deep kobolds that were all extremely curious about the surface and the sun. For two days you map out the region finding nothing noteworthy on the third day you go south to the beginning of the woods thinking you might as well stock up on wood, as you are in the skyes scouting ahead you spot what at first looked like shorties but you are sure are kobolds after you see them climbing down holes in the snow fleeing from a group of ten or so bonies. >Go gather your party to fight the bonies>Try to fight the bonies single handedly >Try to persuade the bonies to step down>OtherRoll 2d20 best of 3

You then proceed to interrupt the bonies chase with a large roar, instead of being intimidated they look at you with excitement, shoving each other to hurl spears and hand-axes in your direction. You expertly dodge through the air burning two of the spears mid flight, you then beat your wings to get some distance in the direction of your party. As they approach you see a volley of javelins, stones and firebolts hit the bonies leaving all but three severely injured in the snow the remaining three keep giving chase with crazed looks about them. As you prepare to face them you see the snow underneath them move, in one synchronized motion the white kobolds burst out of the ground cutting the tendons of the bonies legs, prone and crippled they are dragged to your feet with daggers at their necks. >Take the surviving bonies with you>Take the leader of the group and leave the rest for dead>Kill all the bonnies >Other

You go back to the kobold holes, and Pocpuc volunteers to climb down one of them to tell them it is safe to come out. You see a total of 13 kobolds saying things like "The rumores where true!" "The Dragon of gold has come to our salvation!" *The great dragon warriors.. They are even more impressive in person than the tales tell"With no hesitation they agree to join your growing family, but first offer you a place to rest in their warren seeing that you are filled with nasty bonie prisoners. You climb down a larger sized hole hidden behind some bushes to see a very rough series of tunnels and chambers, it has a hastily built look about them, you try very hard not to bump any of the wooden pillars that support the structure. There an older looking kobold with wooden armor and several furrs and feathers, Grish, tries to speak to the captives on your behalf using a mix of grunts and imposing body poses, she is spet on by every single captive. "Golden saviour, your kindness is waisted on these ogre brains, all they do is hunt and prepare for hunts, you will be better served by offering them to the clans of Tempus or better yet to the nearby Ten Towns."After a rest you go back home with the new family members and the prisoners. Inside the confort of your fortified home you and your family take your time getting to know the forest kobolds, you learn they used to number nearly two hundred before the winter, but the constant ashskin raids forced them to sperate into many less noticible groups. They ask for your help rescuing the largest of these groups that took refuge in a nearby cave with an hibernating beast, for they are trapped inside now with the blindmaw. Befor you can deal with anything else you feel you have to address what to do with the prisoners.

The ashskins captives are given water and are bound to the sled. At Snuvs suggestion you decide to also take some mushrooms and moss to see if they are something the humans might be interested in trading for something. You travel through the snow fields until you arrive at a road of packed snow, you can barely see some marks left by a large cart, you follow it until you reach a large lake still frozen from the winter. A bit ahead you see the Ten Towns, the name seems too grand for what you see, several wooden shacks alongside a few ruinous looking stone houses. You keep to the road as some humans look at you from a distance, some look curious, most run terrified. The road ends at the first thing you saw today that you would actually call a town, a stone wall with a heavy gate, with some more impressive houses, a few even towering over the wall. "I'm experienced with talks with traders of these parts. I shall translate your word and theirs as best I can" whispers Grish into your ear. From the gate a single guard with just a winter coat and a crossbow nervously asks your business. You present yourself as the Sun that has landed and explain that you are their new neighbours and as so you would like to establish good relations between your family and theirs, as proof you bought some who were quicker to hostilities than words as a gift of sorts. The guard leaves after you have spoken and another takes its place. With the night close approaching, you wonder if you made the right choice trusting these humans, you start to get nervous and tell your people to get behind you if the humans rain bolts on you.
After a long while the gate opens, you see six chainmailed guards accompanying a confident rich looking man and a young robed woman with a walking stick that pulsates Arcane energy. The man speaks some joyful words you have no understanding of, the robed woman noticing your confusion, speaks in a soft voice an accented version of the language of your people. "We welcome you to Bryn Shader, capital of Ten Towns, we did not count ourselves lucky enough to be neighbours to a Gold Dragon, specially one that could helps us resolve our problems with the half giant's."They lead your party to the largest building at the center of the town, a fort-like structure surrounded by a great marketplace. Inside they take you to a room with a long table and a small feast, with some effort you manage to pass the narrow doorways. "Enjoy, while we discuss how we can be let us say better neighbors" They show their interest in ridding themselves of the half giants or at least have some protection while harvesting wood from the forest.

Rolled 5, 16 = 21 (2d20)>>5101597Offer to help with the ashskins in exchange for arcane lessons from the Robed Woman, if she can teach some kobolds and us some decent or potent AoE damaging spells, we could surprise nuke them with all our casters and ourselves, dealing a crippling blow and forcing them to either scatter in small (and easier to deal with) groups of survivors, or try to regroup and flee, which would leave them open to another nuking festival and a chance to put them down for good. Then ask if our mushrooms and moss are of any commercial value to them, if so trade in exchange for help finding kobolds, and once that's over keep the trade to get the services of a master stonemason, in order to speed up the improvement of the cave, and once we have enough numbers and those numbers are skilled enough, to both ensure their own safety and that of the woodsmen, offer to escort them in turn for something that we need and/or want at that moment.Also agriculture is a big no no for us, as our cave and the surrounding landscape is inhospitable to any kind of seeds that we could get, and getting away from it's safety to tend to the plants is a red flag the size of the Tarrasque's ass, so nope, no agriculture for us, not for now at least.(P.D. i'm from Argentina so sorry is it's a pain to read my English)
Rolled 3, 12 = 15 (2d20)>>5101704mostly follow this, though in dealing with the ashskins, let's try and talk to them and see if we can settle things peaceably.
>>5101714I considered it, but seeing that the last time we tried it, they trowed a lot of hand axes and javelins at us and upon defeat they only kept insulting non-stop and refused to speak i had to reconsider, also they seem to be a thorn on everyone's side, (The city, other tribes and more importantly the kobolds, witch they seem to even hunt) so getting rid of them could be beneficial for us in therms of future friendships/alliances. (Plus i think giants and their relatives don't get along with dragons and their relatives by nature, though i could be wrong, i don't remember that part of the lore very well after all)

And for such help they agree you and few others would be able to visit Bryn Shander for Arcane lessons, thats when you notice the men arguing with the robed women, as you notice their little fight the man smiles at you as whispers something through his teeth to the robed woman, she with a more genuine closed lipped smile sugests"What if I where to accompany you Sun that has landed, then I would be fully available to teach you and yours some lessons in the Arcane, I would expect you to provide me lodgings of somekind and for you to answer my many queries honestly." Seeing the advantages of her proposal and thinking those who learn your tongue must be worthy of some trust, you agree to her terms. While she goes to prepare her things for travel you question the worth of your moss and mushrooms to their markets. The man tries to mask his discous of the moss and shows great interest in the mushrooms. "Those will fetch a good pric.. I mean we could trade for them I suppose, for the services of the stonemason you showed interest in or for any information of kobolds we come across" you hear Grish whisper in your hear, translating the man's words. With the sky already dark you start to leave town. At the gate despite the cold of the nigh you see the woman with just her blue velvet robe adorned with silver details, next to her you is a heavy backpack carried by just air? And behind her a thin traslucid blue disk supporting a quite a few of travel bags, a large chest, a small desk and a chair. As you tread through the darkness her staff begins to shine a pale bluish light, illuminating your way. "So young Dragon, I was going to wait a hot before I started with the questions but I can't help myself. How old are you? Where did you come from? Is it true you can breath fire and weakening gas? What about shape-shifting, can you take one form or many?" Confused by many of her questions you tell her that you shall speak within the safety of your home so not to alert the dangers of the night.
Thankfully you reach your home safely, only hearomg wolfs howling in the night, you choose to ignore them, for now..Upon your arrival the women seems at the same time fascinated and underwhelmed, seeing no other hut besides tje one chocked full of kobolds. She has her nearly invisible helper prepare a camp on one of the dead-end. You decide to go rest while the followers of the flame quite obviously keep a watchfull eye over the arcanist. You wake up in the middle of the day and see the arcanist questioning the followers of the flame in matters regarding you and their fire magic.

You interrupt her saying she may ask what she pleases if it is followed by a lesson as she promised. She promptly agrees. "So as I was asking yesterday, where did you come from? Is this gold dragon territory? Or are you alone? How old are you if you don't mind me asking?" You answer you are the only dragon you know, this is your family's territory, you are never alone and you are a winter old, telling the truth but giving the impression you're at least one year old."So interesting, what about shape-shifting? Can you turn yourself into an elf such as myself?" That's when you notice that her features are finer than that of the humans, it finally makes sense in your head her knowledge in the Arcane despite her young looks. "I cannot shape-shift" you respond "Cannot or have not? I bet it's quite a show to see, I won't bother you no longer for today, let us start the lesson" She takes to the center of the large chamber awaiting her audience, to your surprise every single kobold stops what they are doing to come learn. After everyone is sorted she starts to release small illusions to complement her explanations on the basics of the Arcane, how implements like wands and staffs can improve your spells threefold or how it is always easier to manipulate an existing source than creating one.

>>5102658>>5102685>>510290910, 4, 6, 2, 20, 14, 13, 6, 20, 10 The elf arcanist hears your request for charm magic and continues her lesson. "As I said before it is easier to manipulate an existing source than creating a new one. This is true in all Arcana including charm, you will have an easier time if you push your adversary to do what they already want be it to flee be it to give you their aliggence, charm is but part of the art of persuasion not the whole meal."For a demonstration she asks for a sack of mushrooms and a volunteer, Torv, one of the forest kobolds steps up. "The first spell I shall teach you will be more of use against foes that you don't intend to have relationship with because it is obvious to the target the effect of the charm, and it won't appreciated it, in my experience" She shows you a game, each person is given three mushrooms and they must charm each other to gather as much of them as they can, she then proceeds to show what she means by charm with Torv, she repeats a hand sign over and over while reciting Vedui- na i feui in nin hu she then proposes a trade, her biggest mushroom for two of his, Torv's eyes become glassy and purplish in shine and he does as she suggested, he is visibly upset moments after the trade. "One more thing, perceived hostilities will break most charms, do not forget this warning." she does the spell again, this time demanding Torv gives her his last mushroom in trade of nothing, he strains for a bit and then does as she proposes until she throws a mushroom in his face, he seems to wake up and back off the deal. After that explanation the whole family starts the mushroom challenge as the elf walks about correcting the incantations and hand gestures. After hours of practice most kobolds can't even begin to grasp the concept of charm correctly especially those who have learned sparks, but at least you and 7 others, mostly forest kobolds such as Torv and Grish do expertly well according to the elf. Emboldened by this new found power the forest kobolds dart to the entrance with the intention of facing the Blindmaw. "We mean no disrespect golden one but family cannot be ignored" says Grish with desperation in her voice.

You use your flight speed to catch up with Grish and convince the forest kobolds to wait a moment while the others arm themselves, you entertain them by drawing battle plans on the snow of you in front and of them in the back. As the backup arrives you see a large spectral eye following the group, you recognise it as a projection of the elf woman's eye. You arrive at the cave to see the blindmaw with blood on its mouth chasing at wolves, the forest kobolds start chanting and the beasts calms, the whole group waits for your signal and the strikes at once, javalis and stones pierce its face while firebolts create a flame out of its thick fur.Enraged, the blindmaw swings wildly trying to catch the fleeing kobolds, you see your illusions of dragons like yourself being completely ignored. That's when a spark of an idea hits you. "Flames! Help me bring the flames to its head" you fly around the beast producing firewhips out of your front claws, you use them to grab onto the flames at the creatures back and pull them to its face. With the followers of the flame working with you, a whirlwind of fire twists around the creatures body culminating in its neck close to its jaw, there the flames take on a spherical form encasing the creature's face in an inferno. It coughs wildly, and tries to bury it's head in the snow but the fire is so intense that all it finds is boiling mist. After a moment its enormous body falls limply and the flames go out revealing pitch black bone. You ask the eye to tell your people to come recover what they can of the beast as you go with your corrente party to explore the cave. Extremely confident you lead them through the large deep tunel. You take notice the cave is very deep and large and overfilled with the moss that has fed you through the winter. After a long march you arrive at chamber with ten small tunnels or so. You shout with a voice deeper than you are used to have. "The sun that has landed has come to bring glory to your life, do as Grish of the forest master of the human tongue and join my family!" Dozens of kobolds come running out of the tunnels with wonder in their eyes. "Grish found the golden one!!?""The great sun dragon is real!" "IT Is my life's honor to meet you great dragon" You tell them to grab what they can and to follow you home. You end your long day in a cramped cavern filled with tons of meat and fur of Blindmaw, 68 new family members and a couple of kobold eggs. In the morning with more than a hundred kobolds and counting you decide to>Move the family to the larger cave>Expand your home towards the large cave in hope one day they might be connected >Seperate the family into outposts to share the living quarters burden
>>5103142>>Expand your home towards the large cave in hope one day they might be connectedMight want to think about some city planning at this rate.
>>5103142>>Expand your home towards the large cave in hope one day they might be connected >>Seperate the family into outposts to share the living quarters burdenmake a chain of outposts to the larger cave, so that your family has a quick way of reinforcing one another in case one is attacked. We can then expand each outpost as necessary and work on the digging a connection between each cave system from both ends.
>>5103142>Expand your home towards the large cave in hope one day they might be connectedIdk maybe dig out a large oval with plans to make it a hatchery for the eggs with reinforced pillars in places it makes sense for to start with the expansion Though keep an eye on the elf while you make the room (personally I don't fully trust her, especially with the whispering from the folks in their town, worried they may try to enslave us or try to gain some leverage, so they could use us as a hammer for any problems they may have or cause because they now have access to a dragon, doesn't really matter if we are a gold dragon they will still try to use us for their own benefit even if we suffer for it, especially with her prying praying we're the only one of our kind in the area red flags on that question, chances are they will try to influence us at the least to their benefit)
>>5103147I've waited for this day to come. Here's my time to shine.>>5103142>Expand your home towards the large cave in hope one day they might be connected First, we'll need as >>5103160 said a nursery for the eggs. Then, we'll need to build a proper school for our Kobolds.But the most important one right now would be to dig a guest chamber for the elf. Let's ask her what accomodation she would prefer and let's create a ornate, top of what we can do, place.Maybe, if we found some clear quartz or gemstone we can shape them in perfect sphere using our magic and imbue them with sparks to create magical permanent lights? Would improve the standing of the guest room.
>>5103142>>Expand your home towards the large cave in hope one day they might be connectedThe kobolds have picks right? Between us we should be able to make fairly quick progress.
>>5103147>>5103148>>5103160>>5103185>>5103252>>5103264You spend the next couple of weeks expanding your current home in the direction of the large cavern you don't expect you will reach there soon but maybe by next winter you will have them connected. Snuv as the master miner and elder of the family divides everyone into many mixed groups so all the folks from different backgrounds have a chance to mingle and bond. One group is responsible with the fabrication of more mining tools from all that is left of the spiders, some rudimentary stone tools are also made when no other materials are available. The deep kobolds are tasked with keeping a watchful eye over the elf, while the followers of the flame work with you and the elf producing some fairy fire candles, just like the flame you used to kill the yeti, fire that is eternal, bright but with no heat or smoke, you work on them for a bit so you can achieve the color just right, gold yellow with no hint of the orange of the common flame. The rest of the groups work mining a long passageway in the direction of the large cave, different housing, working and teaching chambers are mined perpendicular to it as well as a guest chamber for the elf arcanist, you carve this one yourself following her instruction as a thanks for her help with the lessons and the candles. The hut is used as a nursery seeing that it is the warmest place in the cave.After all this hard work you are called to see the hatching of 8 eggs of your starting family. Roll 8d20 best of 3

The family seems to take it as a good omen and celebrates the births, they celebrate so much you expect you will be back at the nursery hut in a few months.

One of the groups stays at your home while the other two are sent to fortify and settle on the large cavern and on the woods. Together with the elders you have named each settlement to stop the confusion between caves. >Pick a name for the original home, large cave and for the warren in the woodsA traveling group of the most elite fighters, flames and charmers is also established to visit the settlements from time to time to take resources that are required in one place and not the other like the cave moss. It is also responsible for helping rotate the kobolds, for knowlage exanges and so nobody gets frostrated for not being able to live next to the Sun that has landed. You also request the help of Floralyn, the elf arcanist, you ask her for some way to quickly communicate between the settlements like her magic eye, and help in growing the mushrooms and moss, and also assistance in crafting some basic staffs and wands for the flames and charmers she's been giving lesson to. She agrees to help in all three but requires you do something in return, after hearing some suggestions you accept >Giving her some of your scales>Take her flying on your back>Let her see you try to shape-shifting first-hand >OtherYou spend the remaining week and a half helping the new settlers. The large cave entrance is blocked by a wall with a gate and arrowslits, and mushrooms are taken there to cultivate in the narrow passageways. The forest warrens are extended, the entrances are made deeper an narrower so bonies have little chance to infiltrate and many fake entrances are made that lead to deep spikey holes. A single large entrance is made for you with also a death hole so those without wings have little chance of entering through it. A basic watchtower is also build making use of three trees that are particularly close to each other. Mushrooms and moss are also sent there to cultivate. You feel confident about the large cave defenses but fearful that the forest warren's are not sufficient, specially while there are bonies and goblins in those forests.After all that you go to Bryn Shander to accompany the woodsman and learn of the half giants whereabouts, you take with you Floralyn, Grish as a guide and>A large military force so you can defeat any ashskins you come upon>A group composed of some fighters and all the charmers and flames>Just the followers of the flame>OtherRoll 3d20 best of 3

As you enter the deeper part of the woods, Floralyn gives you a translated summary of what the woodsmen know of the half giants. They are separated into many tribes but they join together in some old towering ruins in the forest every few months or so, like today according to Floralyn's scouting. You leave the woodsmen to their work leaving some experienced kobold guards with them and take the brunt of your forces to the ashskin's ruinous home. Scouting from the sky you see it, great pillars of darks stone, and around them many hide tents, you count a hundred heads or so, probably most of if not all the ashskins of the greater region, as you are flying back you start to remember that you saw these kind of stones before, right after your fight with the goblins, you search around for a bit and find your heavy bag of frost bombs, these will do nicely against the ashskins you thinks to yourself. You instruct your forces to mount ambushes all around the ruins so they catch the ashskins fleeing, and then turn to Floralyn "Your opportunity to ride the winds has come. We will bring a swift icy death to the half giants" Not waiting for you to change your mind she starts to climb your harness and finding her footing. You focus completely on the wind to fly out of javalis reach but at good angles of the large ashskin encampment, Floralyn releases the frost bombs one by one after reciting an encantstion, they expload with a force incomparable to those of the goblins, the floor not only freezes but jagged ice shards expload in every direction. After all but two bombs are thrown the ruins sit completely sill and silent as a graveyard. You organize your forces in the ruins and find that the ambushes were just as successful as your attack, you have your large force recover anything of value, including ashskin meat and go back to the settlements. You go meet back with the woodsmen and to your horror see frozen kobold corpses, they were attacked by a group of goblins nearly double their numbers. The woodsman are mostly unharmed protected by the brave kobolds you left them with, several of the party are severely burned by ice, Floralyn tries to help them with their wounds while you go recover the bodies, you count 9 dead and amongst them are Frec the youngest of the warrior sisters and Yucks the talented fighter and flamemaker. You manage to convince Frid and Fran to go back with you and recover instead of going blind with vengeance after the goblins. After the woodsmen are safe back at Ten Towns with their large carts of wood, you go to Sun's Landing to rest.
By morning several of the survivors of the goblin ambush await your next move, you decide to>Endebt yourself with the frost mage and go just the two of you deal with the goblins>Lead an elite small force to kill the goblin leadership and scatter the rest>Lead a large force to take over the goblin cave that is the source of their bombs>OtherRoll 2d20 best of 3

At the dead of night you lead the deep kobolds, the charmers and the vengeful survivors to the cave, you go to the side of the hill and start digging towards where you remember being the large central chamber. You are surprised to find that the goblins did not sleep through your digging instead they seemed somewhat prepared for your arrival and shower you with frost bombs, with firewhips you deflect most of the bombs but are still pierced by some of the flying ice shards. You push through raining large firebolts on the goblins while the charms create confusion amongst the goblins and the rest take down all who dare come too close to you. After many firebolts and freezing wounds you manage to push the disorganised dozens of goblins out of the cave. You nervously wait for the ambushing parties to return, thankfully they all come back unharmed and guarantee you that no goblin left the cave area alive. With that knowledge you spend the following week fortifying the new settlement and sorting through the goblin Loot, the most notable among these are some staffs the goblin sparkmaker and his followers were using, you give them to the most loyal followers of the flame.
Hey readers I unfortunately no longer have the time to update this quest, between work and DMing a live game I just don't have the time. I thank you for going with me in this journey of the life of the Sun who has landed. I want to leave you with some sense of conclusion so I will make a final update that describes the following 5 years as you grew from a dragon wyrmling to a young dragon. One day when I have more time I reckon I will do a new chapter of this quest to see what adventures await the young Sun who as landed and his family.

>>5105447>>5105475>>5105646>>5105795>>5105852>>5105859You grew immensely during these last five years and not just in size, although you grew so much in that department that most corridors of your sprawling city can't begin to accommodate you, your winds are now so large they hug most tunnels, but in the air they taken you wherever you want with great speed and fitness. You grew as a diplomat, you learned the languages of all the peoples that surround you from the faerûnish dialect that is spoken in Ten Towns to the strange language you dubbed tempish the tribes of tempus speak that is a mix of faerûnish, northern orchis and giant speech. You even lived a few weeks with each of your neighbours to learn their way of life, with the Ten Towns folk you learned to fish, to haggle and trade as well how to work the stone as the master masons do. Your peoples became close friends, some even call Sunnest, your home, the eleventh town for the streets of their markets are filled with your family and your markets are filled with theirs. With the Winter Wolf and the tribes of Tempus you learned to listen to your body, to let the wind take you, their lessons were of much use against the few tribes who didn't share your vision of a peaceful north. From the shorties or as they prefer to be called the Coldfootfolk you learned a great many things, they became one of your most intimate allies after they helped you find the kobolds scattered all over the woods in return for your extermination of the violent goblins and ashskins. They taught you how you could work with, instead of against the forest so it provided food and shelter. They helped you turn the cold chambers of your city into warm rooms filled with confort. Some of them even joined your family living side by side with the kobolds and the rare human or dwarf. The group you learned the most was probably Floralyn and her robbed friends from the south, they were fascinated with your proficiency from birth in the Arcane arts and described you as the sorcerer of the century after you proved yourself an impressively quick learner. You studied all kinds of schools of magic, and learned to manipulate the elements specially fire and earth, you also learned how to change the very nature of materials, giving bone the strength of iron and stone the flammability of wood. The discipline you most enjoyed learning was that of charm and miss direction, an art that served you well when common words of diplomacy were not persuasive enough. You truly grew much in the way of the word that your allies began to be request you as a peacekeeper, when the coldfootfolk had a conflict with the tribes of Tempus or the tribes had some issue with the Ten Towns you were called to resolve it. "Scales of gold but tongue of silver" is a common phrase used to describe you.
Yes you grew in many ways these past years, but in no ways more so than as a teacher and a leader. To be able to live by your family's side despite your growing size you finally learned how to shape-shift, you can only take one other form yet, that of a large muscular golden scaled kobold, none would mistake you for a regular kobold tough for you kept your wings, and your features are still mostly that of a dragon. You spend many of your days inside in this form and take to your regular dragon self every time you reach the surface or are in a particularly large chamber. Everything you learned from others your tirestly taught back to your family. In great big chambers you assembled the young and the interested, and with the assistance of more experienced family members you spoke of the theory, always following it with a bit of practice. It was due to these lessons that your family became well versed in the Arcane and other more traditional crafts such as mining, masonry and carpentry. Together you transformed the four small settlements of Winterscale, Sun's Landing, Summerpine and Calmshards into a great underground interconnected city known as Sunnest. Despite its long tunnels and numerous chambers, Sunnest became a place of great comfort, to rival even the dwellings of the richest folks of Ten Towns. Every single member of your family has a bed to sleep and furniture where to sort their things, their rooms are warmed by magic created by yourself and the followers of the flame, who now spend these times of peace focused on bringing warmth and light to all in this place of cold and dark nights. Every belly is filled with all kinds of plants, moss and mushrooms that grow underground or in the woods, they are accompanied by the occasional meat of spiders, yetis or wargs that come upon your territory. And most of all your family has purpose, they work to create a great haven for all koboldkind and others that take a liking to this way of life. Such prosperity became legend to the kobolds of the world, from the hot deserts to the misty swamps came all kinds that wished to join your family. Some you still remember vividly when they first showed up, like The Broken Spears a group of giant weasel riding mercenaries or The Trapmakers of Khour so skilled are they that even wizards and kings hire them to secure their belongings. With food and warmth they multiplied, hatching in all sizes and colors, some had blue scales, others pure red, others rarer even where the ones with mixed gold scales that always proved themselves proficient with fire magic and resistant to very hot temperatures. After five years your family numbers nearly a thousand, even so you still know each one of them by name. ---That's where we'll leave it. Happy New year to you all!
