Convince her more loot and honour is to be gained fighting our enemies, stand by her on the field of battle, win mutual respect that slowly turns to admiration and love over the years eventually becoming the foundation for a great empire.
>>44552308 if she were as dangerous as the mongols she'd wait to demand tribute when she was busy raiding a major city bitch probably is used to raiding tribals and small counties, she'll be mighty surprised when someone starts using actual tactics against her
>>44551663 Offer her settling rights in the land recently depopulated by the last war with the lich Queen Aarondale, hopefully securing our borders against the Horselords since they keep burning out our attempts to resettle.
We'll send some craftspeople along as well.
Also, pretty sure we can find some suitable noble son to marry her or daughter to apprentice. Really, I don't have much time to deal with this shit.
Anyways, we'll handle educating their children and offer money + citizenship for military service so it'll all be the empires land once again.
Who knows, maybe one of her descendants will bena future body of mine.

I reply with a message immediately, stating that it would be my pleasure to bestow tribute upon her and that I would be there as soon as physically possible, in person, to do so. Along with the messenger I send a cask or two of decent wine, perhaps a small chest with some trinkets.
I would arrive with a small retune, making a concise point to ensure she feels I am not attempting to grand stand, intimidate or belittle her station. I would bestow gifts she would likely appreciate; a few token weapons made of decent steel, casks of wine, precious gems and metals, silks and spices.
All of it would be poisoned.
Every gem, every coin, every roll of silk, every cask of wine, even the leather wrappings on the swords.
After a week, you would begin to feel tired. Your would appear pale, lacking in energy. After a month you hair begins to fall out. Then your nails. Then your teeth. Your muscle tissue begins to fade, your skin begins to turn sallow as your liver begins to fail.

>>44552308 Yea if the Chinese took the mongols seriously the empire probably wouldn't have ever existed. China's complacency let Genghis kick their shit in, which gave him enough resources to start going full mongol.

I remember the last time the DM did something like this. Not falling for it again, let the Kingdom deal with it. Barbarians don't believe in "Don't shoot the messenger." and being the prisoner to a NotViking warrior queen berserker isn't fun.
The queen (now that I think about it she might have only been a jarl) shoved some of us in her retainer retinue as royal prisoners. One of her non-prisoner retinue was a priestess of NotCthulu gods and promised her favorable rituals if she could wed the cleric, whom was of a main faith. NotViking leader liked the sound of that over propriety so put the cleric through a shotgun wedding with the priestess. Cleric was not yet 15 I think, priestess was described as being twice his age.
Whenever the Jarl needed a NotCthulu favor, the cleric was defiled, among other things.
>>44552931 ...How many decades do you think she's going to wait before attacking?

,,,Your defensive strategy sounds a lot more expensive than just paying tribute.
>>44551663 I should fear a single barbarian? I, who am the most powerful man in europe, should fear a fucking up-started woman? Bring me my +2 purple axe, we're going for the greatest raid of the century! We will burn down every holding they have, imprison their women and tear their economy asunder! Then have the muslim pigs take them over, see how they like that!
Tremble before the power of the Scandinavian empire and the norse British empire combined! No building will be left standing once we're through with them!
>>44551663 I'd just send Barbie the Barbarian (Barbarella Bronsdottir) who thinks she's a man to go and battle the queen, perhaps they would battle barefoot in the snow with massive weapons. This would please Kord.
O queen, nomadic devil and damned demons' kith and kin, secretary to Beelzebub himself. What the devil kind of warrior are you, that can't slay a hedgehog with your naked arse? The demons excrete, and your army eats. You will not, you daughter of a bitch, make subjects of us; we've no fear of your army, by land and by sea we will battle with thee, fuck your mother.
You Arrimonian scullion, Kallydian wheelwright, brewer of Tatalon, goat-fucker of Anaxandria, swineherd of Greater and Lesser Kalypt, pig of Omorria, Pomalian thief, catamite of Alany, hangwoman of Kallan, and fool of all the world and underworld, an idiot before the gods, granddaughter of the Serpent Lord, and the crick in our dick. Pig's snout, mare's arse, slaughterhouse cur, mud-dwelling brow, screw your own mother!
So the king declares, you lowlife. You won't even be herding pigs for our kingdom. Now we'll conclude, for we don't know the date and don't own a calendar; the moon's in the sky, the year with the gods, the day's the same over here as it is over there; for this kiss our arse!

With what manner of speech did you address me, rake? Be informed that I was peerless among barbarians during my training. I have aided her majesty the queen in numerous raids against the Southern Kingdoms and I have laid low thrice fivescore opponents. I have mastered the delicate art of the night-raid and am the superlative raider in the realm. You, meanwhile, are wholly without worth. Let it be known that I will bring such artifice to your ignominious end as none have yet witnessed within Termesh’s creation. You believe you can volley such insults by way of anonymous missive? My pillagers and rapers have already discerned your location, so it is best you hasten preparations for the ensuing tumult, wretch, the species of tumult that will spill your life essences into the gaping maw of the Deathrealm. Perhaps if wisdom guided you to see the repercussions of your knavish harangue, you would remained silent. You were unable to do so, however, and now punishment will be exacted on you. I will excrete biliously upon you and in such bilious excretion shall you be overcome. Your time on this earth shall soon cease, knight.
>Implying the DM didn't already send us that letter in the face of the queen's raiding, you fucking knave
>>44551663 I imagine we pay the tribute as we have done for the last one-hundred and seventy-three years. It would be quite embarrassing to start a war over standard policy three weeks before my nephew the Duke of Hoftstal's christening, she is invited after all.
The event itself will be unpleasant no doubt, I have heard that Sigurd can never stop crying and his late father was so cherished. father will no doubt send to to their court under some paper pretence to lurk and keep an eye on his mother least she try something stupid with a neighbouring lord.
High Queen Yeke has apparently requested my presence after celebratory feast afterwards, though what interest she has in a third son and foreign spymaster is lost on me, probably just a goodwill gesture.
Shit now I want to write about a prim and proper Prince getting enlisted as a retainer to help manage an huge tribal kingdom.
>>44551663 >>A Barbarian queen demands a large tribute of goods or she will raid the kingdom *Sigh* Of course she knows we don't have the goods she demands, so as usual, we'll have to pay her in "services". This time, however, we'll draw straws to see who services her, because sending a woman didn't cause her to lose interest like you promised it would, and I swear I'm still picking red n' curlies out of my teeth.
>>44559772 >,,,Your defensive strategy sounds a lot more expensive than just paying tribute. paying tribute turns a strong horde in an even stronger horde a defensive strategy turns a strong horde into a line of staked bitches
>>44562198 >paying tribute turns a strong horde in an even stronger horde >a defensive strategy turns a strong horde into a line of staked bitches
So, your plan is, rather than pay a simple tribute, is to risk the lives of everyone here on the idea that you can defeat a barbarian horde and they will all just give us time to sit down and prepare while we get ready for a fight we probably can't win, and probably spending more money on this mad scheme than we would lose if we paid the tribute three times over.
I say we hold a peasant revolt and hang this shithead, who's with me?
>Implying we're going to fight them fairly. >Implying we aren't going to be the most underhanded bastards the world has ever known >Implying honour or notions of fair play are going to enter into this conflict >Implying we aren't going to invent the notion of war crimes >Implying we aren't going to drive them back >Implying our retribution isn't going to burn their cities, salt their land, poison their wells and genocide their people. >Implying that they aren't going to call out to their heathen gods for deliverance from the end of day and be met with only silence >Implying there will be a single one of their people left down to the last man, woman and child.
>>44551663 Tell her to get in line after the Orc Warlord and his hordes, Vampire Patriarch and his minions, Bad Dragon and his Kobolds and the Lich and his Skellingtons.
In fact if she took the southwestern approach she could take out like forty percent of advancing evil coalition. If she can break through them she can take whatever valuables that have not yet been reforged into makeshift defenses. She can also help herself to the men, but I'll need them back once she's done with them, for the final stand and whatnot.
>>44562460 her demand combined with the fact her horde is nowhere near our borders is enough time to defend the fact that she made the demand while her horde is nowhere near the borders means her grasp on tactics is mediocre at best and if we pay tribute now in the future its likely she'll invade everyone, kill the men and rape the women, especially if some idiot thinks this is the right time for a peasant revolt
>>44559817 She's gonna want them back soon, unharmed and unused or else she's gonna take 3 qt shotas from your kingdom for every one you don't return

send assassins and an adventuring party. Put a bounty almost equal (depending on amount, don't want to cripple the bank) to what she wanted on her head. Why? Fuck you, that's why. this is my kingdom, don't threaten my people.
>>44551663 AH-HAHAHAHA! That you, Sis? Still salty over getting kicked out of the clan? Yeah, life's been good since father named me Jarl of the Eastern Hills. Too bad you pulled that stunt with the... Duke, right? That's what they call him? Eh, whatever, I've seen that little "kingdom" you claim to rule and you barely have an army. But hey, Brogdin still finds you attractive, maybe instead of getting yourself killed by my men, you agree to be his wife? Could get you back into our lands at least, and you could certainly do worse for a husband.
Dear Queen Broghilda, Marshall of the spine crest mountains and crusher of the skulls of men
We regret to inform you that your petition of tribute to Gabriel Seth, Astartes Lord of the flesh tearers and prince of the wolf-Rayyet star has been declined. Lord Seth however, was much amused by your boldness and impertinence and has stated that should you or a nominated champion wish to fight a duel against him he would be more than happy to oblige you.
In addition, Lord Seth in his bounteous mercy has decreed that your strongest sons may compete to see who shall be taken by his angels to battle enemies across the wide black void. To this end he delivered a single chest of finely forged axes. Only two combatants may remain.
Though amused, Lord Seth has stated that any further demands will result in immediate extermination of your tribe.
Your Humble servant,
Sebastian Quirke, (Seneschal to Chapter Master Gabriel Seth)
>>44572491 I don't know what it is man it's not really the base thread I mind, Inmean you can build something off of it. It's the "lol I kill/rape her with the greatest of ease." So many people just refuse to even build up off the, admittedly poor, base.
>>44572923 It isn't that much of a storytime beyond what I said, since beyond rumors able to be picked up on in-game, anything that happened in private was between the player and DM.
What I my character actually saw though, the priestess was pretty cruel since she had a chip on her shoulder relating to his faith. She treated him more like a pet or something than a prisoner or spouse and dragged him around by the arm or head and pushed him around or threw him on the ground often. Pretty vicious if he did something he wasn't supposed to like talking, and she flew off a handle if he couldn't behave properly which was hard for him because of the toll her actions had on his body, like bleeding him or carving Cthulhu cult symbols into him. Some of the rituals were pretty disturbing as well, and she pulled no punches since he was a great catalyst.
Eventually she sort of satisfied her past issues with his faith and treated him better as their relationship transitioned to a more typical marriage relationship, but by then he was already broken and not much benefit as a cleric anymore since he had been turned to her faith.
>>44572579 >It's the "lol I kill/rape her with the greatest of ease." But that's pretty much accurate, why do you think there were no women barbarian warriors in real life? Of course that's going to be what Anon's going to answer. If you're so desperate to have someone "build off the admittedly poor base", why don't you fucking do it yourself and work with that? Why does it HAVE to be your fuckass waifu fantasy about women who are actually men so that you can play out your repressed homosexuality?
>>44573379 As said, it might have been magical realm as a result, but what happened to us was generally punishment by the Jarl. Some of us fared worse than the kid, some better, but no one had a *good* time.
>>44551663 >A Barbarian queen demands a large tribute of goods or she will raid the kingdom

Sir you can't just kill Goldberg the Lawyer, already Dorn the Ravager has been shunned for refusing to acknowledge the past suffering of Goldberg's people. We'll have a real PR nightmare on our hands if you kill him.
>>44573773 >bring me the head of Goldberg the Lawyer One of the greatest things about the (generally great) City-State of the Invincible Overlord is that being a lawyer is illegal... so the lawyering guild's monopoly is based on bribing and knowing the right people to let them do it anyway.

>>44596991 Chaotic Neutral really. I mean, If I think I could take her and I liked the kingdom enough, maybe I'd blast her to smithereens.

Being an Amazonian fucktoy doesn't sound so bad. You'd be exhausted and have a massive bonus to your anal circumference char creation roll, but you'd get food and water to keep your asset working (assuming that they don't pick up a new toy), and your life would be more interesting than that of Farmer #875329302, living on his farm and turning a blind eye when his wife fucks their stallion.
Even if you do starve to death, at least you're not being tortured by agents of the king for the deed to your farm like Farmer #875329302, who eventua dies alone and homeless, living off the money his deceased, STI-ridden whore wife made selling herself on the street.

Are you the LCB author? Just a wild guess But yeah, I know what you mean. I'm actually in the process of writing an anthology revolving around my Inquisitor character at the moment, I thought about sharing it on /tg/, but I've not seen a writefaggotry thread in a while and I'm kind of afraid to start one.
>>44632378 Well, okay, I'll post a small snippet, then if someone (perhaps you?) starts a writefag thread tomorrow, I'll post the whole chapter in there. This probably won't make sense without the rest, but...hope you enjoy.
I would not let him slip away. But nor could I let him go through with whatever insane ritual he was preparing to perform for his newest project. The timing had to be just so. Jeric paused at the centre of the ritual chamber, a broad smile spreading across his face. “Welcome, brothers and sisters,” he spoke with a civil, high-gothic accent, “We are nearing the twilight curtain of this phase, today marks a monumental event. Gods of Chaos willing, this planet will begin its ascension today. This is but the first of many plagues that will follow.” He stepped forward, pacing around the eight-pointed star, raising a bizarre chant in a language that made my head ache and my ears ring. Jeric raised his fists for emphasis as the cultists took up his chant, swaying and waving their weapons in unison. By the time he reached us, Jeric had almost completed his circle, and was in the process of pulling a wickedly curved dagger from his belt. I centred myself, closing my eyes as I prepared my assault. Blood pounded in my ears, my heart thumped as though aching to escape the confines of my ribcage, and I almost couldn’t seem to get enough air into my lungs. The heretic was no more than two paces from me. I lanced into Jeric’s mind as I stood, causing him to stop dead in his tracks as his mind tried to comprehend what was happening. Without pause, I lifted my Inferno rifle and shot the heretic point-blank. The sickening chant slowly died as Jeric’s corpse, completely immolated from the shoulders up, pitched over backwards.
I like it, though not much to go on with just that bit I'll probably not make a writefag thread, if for no other reason than I don't have anything to post in it I might make one after I get back from work if there is none though, but that won't be till around 6 PM EST
