I've heard it said that a hero is a great man, whose very actions and relations will, in all times, unite him to the rest of the world. The suggesiton, then, being that a hero is someone so grand and influential that his mere existence and the power of his deeds affects the entire populace.

Well, there are heroes in evil as well as in good.

Finesse has created, in my absence, a device which breaks free a fragment of the Orb of Infinite Psyche and implants it just beneath the skin of a subject. This allows my consciousness to, in a way, communicate with them. It does not allow me, myself, to communicate with them directly. But a part of my consciousness (namely, you) can commune with them as you do with me, and then relate information back again. In this interlinked network of shared fractions of consciousness, I will be better able to keep tabs on my minions, and keep my mind's eye on the Vault even in the time I am away.
Further, it appears that the orb is capable of regenerating the lost fragment, meaning there is no shortage of material for this experiment.

I've had some... very strange echoes in my mind recently.
I don't feel entirely myself, as you might say. I'm sure you know what I'm talking about.

Perhaps most importantly, Ashedel has simplified a lot of my workload by streamlining everything in the dungeon.
Mana is no longer a concern. Instead, Mannikins are simply converted to monsters on a one-for-one basis.
My massive, bulky inventory has been condensed and managed to the basic resources and supplies I have available, reducing my need for micromanagement.
Everything is being managed without my necessary intervention, leaving me the time and freedom to focus on grander schemes.

And speaking of which, the three Odds I've recently summoned are more than capable workers. They can reshape raw stone effortlessly, pawing through it like soft dough.

With that in mind, I finally have the ability to restructure the layout of my dungeon into something a bit more appropriate. Whether or not that should be my immediate concern, I can't decide.

But the fact of the matter is things have settled for the time being, and I finally have the basic resources and manpower I've needed since day one.
I believe things are finally on the up and up.

Alright then, lets make a plan.
We need a right and propper throne to impose, and make sure we display that we are above your workers.

A more imposing appearance might be a good idea too, unless you prefer to be able to move relatively undetected through cities and whatnot.

After that we need to know what kind of opposition we might face here, and what the best approach at taking over nearby factions would be.

We could use a forgery for weapons and armour if we dont already have one.

On a side note, what do you think would be our next target? We have our base of operations established, and we need to expand. Who do we conquer?

All that will come in due time. As of now, we have only a few residents, (of whom only two are battle-ready).

Yes, unfortunately, I do know about Tislomer's... misconceptions about how I view her. I'm going to try very hard not to think about that.

I haven't seen anything of that smoothskinned drunkard, Nino, since I left the High Roller's Lounge, but Finesse tells me the coward was sneaking about the dungeon the other night. I'll have to keep an eye out for him. I wonder what his intentions are.

I believe a large dungeon should be our eventual goal, but right now, with our resources and staff as they are, we don't need something quite so grandiose and oversized just yet. Besides, it would just be time wasted by the Odds. We need to start off a bit more modest, something that fits what we need at the moment.

Well, let's see.
I suppose a warehouse and some sleeping quarters might be good. Keep in mind we don't need to keep the old rooms, we can just change everything.
And I agree, we may need a bit more muscle. A dedicated guard, perhaps.

Let's see, what are my minions doing today? Ashedel keeps pretty good tabs on them.
Ash herself is organizing our reserves and working with the minions.
Tislomer is out hunting again, I believe.
Babrakus is tending the fields out front.
And Finesse is in her workshop, working on something that must be pretty secret. She said she's not to be disturbed.

No. 56378 ID: 34e41d

Well, proper bedroom connected to a separate throne room should eventually be made (if possible at the best defended spot of course, in the long run a meeting room closer to the entrance in case you have welcome visits would be good too), a proper workshop for Finesse, a blacksmith (gonna need somebody to work there though, so not a big priority, but combined with Finesse i bet we could fill the place with traps of all kinds), sleeping rooms for everyone (private rooms for the most important minions i'd say), somewhere to eat...

If the odds are as good as you say it might not matter if we make temporary rooms, though if possible i'd keep in mind what will eventually get built.

Overall i'd say the old layout is rather silly and should mostly be scrapped.

All right. First, I'll map out a new floorplan for the dungeon. Something pretty simple to start, I think, but we can change it later. For now, I think as you've said, we need some storage, sleeping quarters, workshops, and maybe a throne room for me, and a meeting hall or a mess hall or some sort of common congregating area, since we currently lack one.

Afterwards, I'll talk to Ashedel about recruiting a dedicated guard and a smith. We could use both.

[gonna take a pause here actually, because in retrospect this was a bad time to start this chapter, but at least during the break you all will have plenty of time to suggest and/or draw out new floorplans for the Vault]
No. 56421 ID: 5ba271

Make the entrance to the dungeon hidden, make a nearby entrance identical to the old one, and fill it with traps. Exact same starting room in both entrances, except one of them is filled with death.

Better yet, make them both hidden, and the trapped one easier to find.

First off, one of the kobolds has been dating Nino.

Secondly, this is a good floorplan. We've been suggesting it to you for a while now.

A forge would probably be in the lower level.

Note that F1 has the throne room. The throne room has three sets of stairs. The side two stairwells are the main ones, the middle set goes straight to Muschio's private quarters. Note that in this design, the throne can slide back to cover these stairs. We do not want it to be possible for an intruder to slide it forward again from the throne room.
The only other thing on the first floor is the entry hall. Note that it is flanked by two rooms. These are for shooting at intruders from. The holes depicted should be very small. The stairs there lead to the barracks.

the second floor down (B1) has more of interest. Note that the stairs leading to Muschio's room go through this floor, but are surrounded by walls, and thus only accessible from above or below.
The spiral staircases from the throne room end up here. A hallway leads from each, and this hallway provides access to the storage room and the barracks. The barracks provides sleeping quarters for our minions of lesser importance, and will also provide space for any recreational pursuits they will want to engage in. Note the stairs, which connect to the defensive areas on F1.
On the opposite side of the barracks is the stairwell going further down, as well as craft areas. Note that there is room to expand the fortress here at a later date.

On the bottom floor (B2) we have the culinary area (kitchen and Dining hall) and the private rooms for the more important individuals. I included Ash in this, as she apparently has been in charge of logistics lately.
Behind the rooms is the well. I assumed, for these purposes, that the source of the water was fairly deep for these purposes.
In its own room is the portal. I assumed it can be moved without loss of attuned mannikins. (It will still periodically spit out manikins of types previously used, right?).
No. 56597 ID: 5d39a6

Muschio, what this dungeon needs is a disguise. Have you considered opening up a "legitimate" Bed and Breakfast outside of the dungeon with a secret entrance in the wine cellar?

You see, we learn from our conquered enemies and take their feindish designs, assimilating it for our own use. The previous owner of the Mannakin had a good thing going for her. If we can disguise the dungeon as a perfectly innocuous operation, then we can work interrupted on universal domination.
No. 56609 ID: 6c80cf

Forge, forge... use the smoke. At high pressures the escaping air can be used to power simple machines.

I also suggest a viewing tower coming out of the top of the hill built with the blocks you have pulled out; no shortage of rocks, after all. And build a bath house! With heated water! I think we could grab some fairly sophisticated plans for you... what else.

Should we have a bathehouse?
It would be handy to have extra water, aswell as keeping ourselves clean without having to leave the laire.
We'd be more vulnerable to attacks by a lake or whatnot.

Though even if it'd be useful, it shouldn't have a very high priority.
We haven't made a lot of enemies that still live yet.

IMO, our goal to become the devil isn't lofty enough. We should become the devil, god, and every other deity in between. What we need is followers. A small cult to start but one that will rise to power and like a flame sweep across the land and burn all history before us. And our lordship will be all that remains.

TLDR: Start a cult, something that can run w/o our management.

No. 56645 ID: fc854e

You're thinking of steam, not smoke. Smoke wouldn't do that, if you try to put it in an airtight situation, the fire goes out.

You guys aren't thinking in three dimensions. Also, Muschio says we don't need to worry about the locations of old rooms, so we should probably get rid of that inefficient clusterfuck early, rather than building around it.

Too difficult from a logistical standpoint. We'd need to set up pumps, and pumps need power. And we'd need drainage, which would take more pumps and more power.
No. 56672 ID: 6c80cf


That's not quite true. The influx of air via different pressures and locations can be maintained while the outflux of smoke can create pressure. There's still problems with it, though, and it's a silly idea for anything other than a slow-moving winch or hot air balloon.
No. 56687 ID: 76e04d

I say we should keep the old rooms and figure out the 3d topography here, can we build stair up and down... if so, then do so... also do not simply assume that a thin exterior walls nect to a single door will provide sufficient choke point (what if a Titan or some shit tries to Cool-Aid Man his way in through that.)

I say we must did down, up, and back but not to the sides till our lair has gone significantly deeper.

Let us also mount the portal horizontally (like a pool) in a fitted multilevel shaft as opposed the vertical orientation we exploited to destroy it ourselves. Put some levers and chains on it and you can raise and lower it through levels to provide quick reinforcements where needed or remove it from harms way.

I also think it is rather traditional and aesthetically fun to take nothing away from a dungeon (don't go knocking down rooms unless necessary)but simply adding more sections onto it?

Also where are threads 9 and 10 I can't find them in the archive... I'm new to the site so maybe I missed it... also this is my first post here. I was looking to add more quest into my diet that /tg/ itself desired.

Also... try to hire a troll. They make surprisingly good trap designers (being some of the few folk who can test them for fun on family and even themselves, well, test multiple times anyhow. See I know this Grimtooth fellah and...

Neither of them start with the chapter start screen, so that's why they were harder to find.

If a Titan comes, we're screwed anyway. That said, I do agree that we shouldn't build to the sides overly much.

Having seen the shape of the mountain, we should have pretty much free reign to dig down, and diggin up only needs to keep in mind the side of the hill.
No. 56715 ID: 632862

Uhh what? No, 9 is backstory. 10 is exposition from a different viewpoint. There's no retcon here, though I guess getting rid of the complicated mana system via Ash was a bit of a cop-out.

I have to wonder though... if we're putting the Mannikins directly into the portal now, are they gone forever? Nobody knows where they originally came from so if everyone did it this way it could lead to the end of all summoning. Unless the Mannikins just mysteriously start appearing again.

Much thanks... I guess I should start learning the individual artstyles around here. Probably would make it easier.

Added some vents in places where they could be bored all the way to the top. Note that we'll want something to keep the rain out.
No. 56749 ID: c0f3bf


Would going up and then diagonally down and out work? The slope would drip the rain down the mountain, right?
No. 56753 ID: fc854e

Yeah, that would work. We'd have to go up there periodically to kill anything that could fit through the upper grate and though living in our ventilation shaft was a good idea, though.

Bigger problem: If it snows here, the opening will get clogged with snow. Then somebody would have to climb up the mountain to shovel snow after each snowfall. If it doesn't snow, that's probably our best option, though.
No. 56760 ID: 632862

Make vents go diagonal, not straight up. Put in a drain halfway down. Rain never gets to the bottom.

As far as creatures living in the vent, just put bars at the top and the most that could get in is a lizard or something.
No. 56762 ID: c0f3bf

Yes, but wire mesh instead of bars, some things can still slip through bars.

And about the snow thing, would it be possible to either send extremely hot gas up to melt the snow or put some kind of perpetual heat device nearby?
No. 56766 ID: 632862

Ah, but mesh would easily clog up with leaves or grass. Why worry about it? It's not like anything dangerous to the dungeon would be able to get through bars.

As for snow... Well, the dungeon's going to have some form of internal heating. I would bet that the snow would melt, even if it is pretty far away.
No. 56767 ID: fc854e

We could do that, yes. But it would still be more effort. I think the drains idea is probably best, actually. Of course, then each vent has two orifices to put bars in front of. And we do want bars, mesh is good for little things, but attackers could easily rip through it. Both would be optimal, but that takes more resources.

If they can be put to any artistic use, we could do with some embellishments to the cliffside entrance. Maybe something in decorated Gothic, maybe with a few gargoyles thrown in for effect.

More practically, though, we ought to have a drawbridge and some sort of moat or spike pit around the doors for added security.

What happened to the costume Finesse was designing, anyway?

Bowie can be everywhere at once.

Awww, I liked the mana system :(

Anyways, Sire:
1. The female gobbo has been dating Nino. He was pretty wary of you seeing him. It's very suspicious. Why is he trying to get her trust? He's probably plotting something against you, Sire.
2. Is Nino capable of making such an elaborate plot himself? A loser drunkard? Don't make me laugh, Sire. He's obviously working for some... benefactor. Now, who was Nino's benefactor? Who let him get his fish ass drunk every night? Who would want your Control Gem back?.. Think about it, Sire.
3. Reinforce the fucking doors. At least make a good lock. Why can any ne'er-do-well enter and exit your fortress any time they want? That's just reckless, Sire.
4. Need a strong defendant who could pose a threat for thieves and/or intruders? Did you forget the Mimic mannikin we had? Now that you don't have to worry about the mana system, it's just the time to summon that Mimic, Sire!

Also, for kobolds:
Male kobold! Female kobold loves you.
Female kobold! Male kobold loves you.
Now go make out.

Regarding #2: Nino should indeed be treated with caution, but now that he's been convinced that Muschio's dungeon is protected by a murderous ghost he poses even less of a threat. And if he really has quit his job, he could likely be tricked into inadvertently revealing information about his former position and employer.

The 'bolds aren't unionized, are they? Don't want to be hit with a class action suit for pressuring employees to get "friendly" with the opposition.

I compromised a few designs I'd brainstormed, and this was the result. It's simple, orderly, and straightforward, and it provides for everything I have so far.
The Odds are still working on some of the rooms, and the relocation of the monster portal is a careful procedure, so we're not completely finished just yet. And we don't really have anyone capable of building the cells just yet.
Ash's room isn't finished either, so she's just using the barracks for now, as are the Kobolds.

All in all I think things came out rather well.

Ah yes, Nino. The skulking salamander I saw in the High Roller's lounge. Thanks to the shard in Tislomer I've learned of his presence. I've also learned she believes I harbor a carnal desire for her. I could have lived the rest of my life without knowing that. I think I would have preferred it.

But what makes this more awkward is that she seems to be fostering some kind of relationship with the scoundrel.
Until I'm sure of how to proceed, I'll allow it to continue. Perhaps a false sense of security will lull him into lowering his defenses.

Oh, and as for Ashedel, she's out trying to find new recruits.
It's just as well. Her room isn't ready yet.
No. 67500 ID: c1b520

Kinda what I'm thinking master, actually, maybe we can use this relationship to get Nino to join us. He's kind of a coward, but he shows potential as a recruit. We just need to let this relationship build, and then turn it in our favor.

The hidden folding bed is located on the left wall, while on the right, beside the desk, there is a secret emergency door connected to the Throne Room.

You'll notice two guard posts here, for... you know, when we eventually get some guards.
In emergencies, there is a trapdoor at the center of the room. Right now it just leads to a small holding room. Non-lethal, in case we need an interrogation.
