Hell it's about time.
So I guess we best be gathering and building. We will need allies and new weapons to fight the lizardbros. I'm thinking make a ship or two for getting people from the home land is still the best.
Yeah need to get a longship out asap,Also pic related eventually
They will also be good for setting up new towns quicker.
It's hard work growing a fitting beard, for a dark elf.
Yeah we really do.
I will need to spend another day mining to get ore for 1 tool. Then we can get about 5 people in the mine, at the moment.
The night has fallen
The choice has been made, the cold blood of the Lizardmen for the cold black magic of the unseen.
A fair price all supposed, but is the cost apparent? The party is split on the matter, but one must be fair in a democracy.
They decide it is time to make industry, they must become stronger if they wish to succeed in this battle.
Sargeras decides that the undead will gather wood as they are smart enough for the task.
He sends the nine of them out and they gather 5 wood each (total 45)
Delim Returns from the mine with news of his discovery a lucky find, a chunk of raw ore as with veins of more.
They melt down the remaining 4 extra farming tools into picks and sends five commoners to the mine. (5 Farming, 5 Mining)
Prices for building
Ship 120 wood 10 metal
Barell 1 wood 1 metal
Crossbows 1wood 3 metal
Weapons 1 metal
Metal armor 2 for heavy 1 for chain
House 40 wood
Will designate other prices as asked
Welcome, perfect timing I just finished typing.
Alright we have 20 people, 10 zombies and 6 heroes, correct?
Thinking half heavy and heavy chain for armor. 10 crossbows and 20 melee for weapons. Then we can focus on training and ship building.
Looking at the description of slimes, it says slimes are capable of casting Slime Magic, which is said to include shapeshifting, water and toxic magic. I wish for Bluey to learn water magic. In particular, I want him to learn snow manipulation.
You summon your shade and send him to the camp of the lizard men.
You study while he is away. 2 turns left
He returns a time later and reports in a faint whisper.
"They keeps watch in the nights" it hisses
"There is fire all places there, They do not like the dark."
Sorry yours took a minute.
10 people, otherwise correct.
1 metal per shield, shields can be broken.
Bluetwo decides to try to take up water magic, he focuses and finds that he can manifest a cone of frost that does 2d3 dam and slows the opponent -5 to dodge/hit
Alright my thoughts for gear layout are 5 cross bows, 15 weapons (If we can make better than what we have), 10 in heavy and 10 in chain. 55 metal and 5 wood ... 11 days of work. Probably throw a few days of in there as well ... 14 days.
How does this sound to people?
As for my action, I will help with small jobs to get the town in good shape, to keep people happy.
Crap forgot shields ... may as well make 20 for 5 back ups.
Hey Sargeras, any chance of learning enchantments for weapon buffs?
Wanted a mix for the ranged people and to make sure that the enemy can't focus on one weapon type to take the heavy's out.
I'm just curious, we planning on making this a permanent settlement or will we be moving?
I will continue working on ma magic, then poison magic for the rest of the skip. My Shade will spend the nights in the abandoned city, scouting it.
My hopes is to get each hero a squad to fit their style. Tank/ heavy, regulars and assassin (rogues). Sargeras has their undead, but later I hope we can get more mages in training. The slimes are the hard ones to think about.
That will depend on the unseen for me. I don't want to trust them, but if we can then staying will be fine. Otherwise we got boats to make or new land to find.
I personally think we should rellocate after a bit, it's alright but not much going on after this is all over with.
I was literally just about to propose I set up a Shadow Clan ;)
This is what happens when i don't get sleep.....I REGRET NOTHING! TWAS ALL FOR THE THREAD!
It is midnight
You will gain Mp, one point every 3 turns.
Undead will gather 45 wood per turn.
You send your shade to the forest to look for anything interesting.
After pushing hard through the forest it comes to the edge. It sees a strange twisting tower in the middle of a small snowy plain.past the plains a mountain range can be seen.
You have learned how to make the shade hide inside a small dark space :EG small box
At current rate if spent exclusively on said items it will take 16 days
Delim has mastered fire aura.
And decides to train his fire skills, He reaches into his inner flame and realizes he can tap his life force for more explosive effects
Is this seem right to everyone?
Bluey builds bobsleds. The purpose of the bobsleds is to transport snow down to the land of the lizardmen. The snow will serve as ammunition for casting snow manipulation.
Sounds good. Then I will nee to boost mp to 10 and work on hp some how.
I will help with the ship after some mp gain.
I'm game to jump time. After all we got a lot of building to do.
How about this I will give you guys a one month free pass this time if you send the heroes as hunters next turn and roll d5 each, if you gain enough food I will let you skip.
I figure you guys would like to setup and this way we can just get on with it.
Rolled 3 (1d5)
Bluetwo performs the following actions:
1. Build bobsleds.
2. Transport wood to the shipyard using the bobsleds.
3. Fill the three barrels with provisions to stow on the ships.
4.. Research major snow manipulation.
Well your the rogue and everyone else is meat shields. Nero and I can be the commanders for the troops. You can take the people with your charm.
The month has been fruitful for Bluetwo.
Rather than be a warrior this once humble slime has become something of a engineer.
He has come up with a plan to fight the cold blooded lizards. He builds 5 bob sleds to make transport across the tundra possible.
He fills the barrels with preserved food so that the planned voyage does not starve.
He taps into his inner water and realizes he can hurl icicles as arrows to attack form afar and has realized that breathing is subjective to him and is no longer necessary.
Sargeras capps his mana at 30 and proceeds to train his health to 20.
5x crossbows (1d6)
15x swords (1d8)
10x Plate armor +15 hp
10x Chain +10 hp
20x Sheild +5 hp
He has taught a villager to smith in his spare time, he no longer has to man the forge.
Delim grinds his mp for 2 weeks and manages to bring it to 15. He then proceeds to help Miekix finish the ship.
Miekix has his shadow with him in a box and speaks to it as he works, he learns that it can slip into someones shadow.
The person will become much more influenceable.
But there is a chance they will feel the dark magic upon their mind and will be angry.
Is it bad that too be honest I'm kinda striving to become something along the lines of a Lich?
I go to speak to the Unseen. No harm in chatting the guy up right? I wear my Shade as somewhat of a cloak, making myself look something like >>36171816
Heh, this will be fun. Leader of the dark elves a shadow lich.
Well if the boat is not finish. I will keep working on that and then hp.
Bluey's class is now "Slime Mage."
At present, Bluey is an aggregate of slimes. Bluey elects to disintegrate. He is now an individual slime. The rest of the slimes become individual slime warriors.
Bluey charges MP.
Well then you'll have to study how to get an undead drunk i suppose huh?
You try to wear the shadow as a cloak, you feel ethereal but weak.
You go to see the unseen. (whadda statement)
"I have seen your people prepare for war elf" it says
"Is such a small task so grandiose to you?" it states with a wet snicker
"Nevermind, What is it you want?" it glurgles.
"My time may be infinite, but it is mine."
Sargeras does not know how to enchant at the moment it is outside of his expertise.
Nero begins to train the men in the testudo formation. Soon they will be well trained.
The boat is complete.
You decide to up your hp and will gain 1hp every 3 turns
you opt for mental power over physical and leave your shell and go back to a single slime . You focus some of your hp into mp
you now have 10 mp and 8 hp
I sneer. "I am not just an "Elf". I am Miekix, leader of the Dark Elves. I do not expect us to be "friends," but I desire to be treated with respect. We are near completion on your task, a few more things work out. I come here to learn. What are you? Why do you want to kill the Lizards? How can you help us?"
"Those who have not earned my respect do not get it you petulant fairy." it says with a flash of anger.
It then composes itself, an oily look upon it;s face.
"But I digress, you are foolish race what else can be expected"
"I am Ra'zarbolet I am the last and most powerful of my brothers here." it says
"I am the only one left because as they grabbed for power, I learned"
"As they fought for land, I learned"
"As they killed the elves, I learned"
"I now know more than you can imagine."
"As for the matter of the lizards, they are a pest."
"They agitate my pet in the volcano, like scuttling salamanders and so I wish them dead"
"You came to me for help, I only work with the dark and the destructive."
"I offer you the power for bloodshed, but I will destroy you on a whim if you cross me"
"I understand that I have yet to prove my worth to you. That will come in time. Know that I am fiercely loyal and have no plans of betraying you. (I actually wanna keep Unseen alive tbh, but I will accept the democracy when it comes to it) I want to learn the secrets of the Shadow. I wish to master the art of the dark. I want to invade the minds of the weak, and bind them too my will. I wish for my Elves to become the strongest force on this land. Grant me this, and you have my undying servitude Great One. I will return whenst your will has been enacted."
I leave the Unseen, but casually slip off my Shade. I want to see what this guy is all about.
Bluey makes final preparations for war. He picks out a secret location close to the village of the lizardmen. The six slimes are organized into a work crew. They fill the bobsleds with snow and run the bobsleds to the secret location. They amass a huge pile of snow outside the lizardman village. They work continuously, making many trips, carrying many tons of snow.
I am going to call it a day for now.
But I will be hosting a thread the day after tomorrow at the same time and the battle will take place that game.
I will take the time to draw battle plans
